Iris did this and it looked like fun, so I thought I would too! =u= Also, I'm pretty much the only one who knows anything about my UTAU character-wise, so, uh... yeah! Also, none of this is strictly "canon" -- interpret my UTAU however you want and I'll be totally okay with it. =u=b
Note: Akira is Boyfriend's UTAU. Sora and Himawari are the UTAU of close friends, and Aki, Daisuke, Hoshi, and Kaimei all belong to Apparatus.

1. Ichigo acts sweet and shy around people she doesn't know, but in reality, she's quite the brat. She expects to be treated like a princess and treats others like they're below her. People are somehow still convinced that she's the sweet-little-sister type, though, so they indulge her ego.

2. Ringo is very shy and doesn't speak up much -- when she does, it's usually about something she really likes, so she awkwardly fangirls until she embarrasses herself to the point where she shuts up again.

3. Mikan is cute, sweet, and bubbly, but it all started out as an act. She used to be quiet and studied people she admired -- that is, the bright, outspoken, and popular -- until she could emulate them. It's not so much an act anymore, but she can still mold herself to how other people would like her to be if she wants.

4. Ichigo is obsessed with cell phone games, and becomes absolutely livid if someone borrows her phone and beats her high score on anything. She'll spend hours trying to claim the top spot again and won't rest until she succeeds.

5. Akira, Aki, Sora, and Daisuke are all engaged in a fierce competition to be the "most manly and handsome." Sora doesn't actually care about any of it, but the other three have roped him into their nonsense nonetheless.

6. Ichigo is jealous of Hoshi, because Hoshi is a more stereotypical princess-type. Ichigo's been getting in the habit of wearing bigger, floofier dresses to compensate.

7. Akira flirts with every girl he sees because he thinks it's amusing and he likes to see how much he can get away with.

8. Himawari is actually in her late teens, but she looks very childish. As such, she spends a lot of time with Ichigo because everyone just sort of assumes they're the same age. Himawari plays on her handhelds, Ichigo plays with her cell phone, and they get along just fine because they're too busy playing games to talk.

9. Kaimei tries to act like the calm, mature big-sister-type, but in reality she's fairly ditzy and boy-crazy.

10. Hoshi has puppy eyes no man can resist. She has no idea she's doing it, though, and doesn't really understand why people do things for her whenever she's sad.
So, I finally finished the art trade I've needed to finish for months now.

This means two things. One, I'm going to feel better about working on other things now, so I'm off of my psuedo-hiatus. Two, I'm shutting down commissions, trades, and collabs so that no one else has to wait forever for me to give them something.

Requests are closed as well, although they always have been.

I'll open them up again in the future and I'll make a journal about that when the time comes, but until then I just have too many other things to work on.
Okay, so it's been approximately forever since I've done anything, so I figured I should make another "yes, I'm still alive" journal, just in case anyone cared. :D;

Updates on art stuff:
I have a very old art trade to finish that I've forgotten about until very recently. The sketches are done, I just need to actually find time to line and color it. To the person I owe the trade: I'm so sorry! I swear I'll get it done when I find time...
Unfortunately, that means I'm really not accepting commissions, trades, or collabs right now. :< I'm sorry to people who keep asking...
Updates on UTAU stuff:
I recently splurged (a lot) and bought Ritsu's microphone! >u</ It's so amazing compared to my old mic~
As such, I'm rerecording all of my UTAU! They'll all be 5 pitch VCV+CV when I'm done. Right now, Mikan is totally recorded and I've been working on her OTO at work. (ssh, don't tell anyone~) That also probably means I won't be doing anything on YouTube for a while. Sorry. OTL
Updates with life:
Still working. I got 6 more weeks on the job, which means I don't get the Thanksgiving break week off. Bleh. At least I could afford the new mic set ~ OTL Real life is hard. And expensive. And my job is still horrifically soul-sucking, so I've started just playing games and working on OTOs instead... there's just nothing to do. *sigh*

That's about it from my end. I'm sure no one bothered to read this, but I was sick of looking at the old one. :D;;

By the way! I realized I never linked it here, but if anyone wants to follow me on Tumblr, I'm pengu-hime! I mostly reblog stuff, but sometimes I rant about UTAU. :D;  Feel free to follow me and send me weird asks!
So, I haven't done anything since school let out, so I figured I should at least make a journal post as to why.

Or, at least, that I should get the birthday post off my page since that was sort if in April.

Anyway! I haven't been online much recently, since I'm currently working 40 hours a week at the corporate office of a popular grocery chain in my area. And 8 hours a day sitting at a computer means that I pretty much do not want to even see my laptop when I get home.

But I am still around! I've been slowly working on OTOs for the UTAU I got my friend to record, and I've been slowly tinkering with a UST as well. :D After that I have two more banks I need to OTO (Mikan VCV and Ringo Append) and that will clear out all of the UTAU WIPs I have right now. =n=

But yes. That is about all from my life. I'm sorry I don't have anything interesting to say, I just wanted to get the old journal entry off my page and say that I'm still alive. :D;;

Thank you + Anyone use Swapnote?

Fri Apr 20, 2012, 9:00 AM





First off, thank you to those of you who wished me a happy birthday a few days ago! I'll get to responding to comments in a second, I just wanted to post this first.

So, this week has been kind of crazy, what with me being accepted into a double major, having an interview (that went... meh, at best), tons of homework, and still trying to find time to talk to everyone who wanted to steal me for my birthday. x_x;

But I did get some cool stuff out of it! My soon-to-be-roommate bought me Hatoful Boyfriend (:heart: nagekiiii), I got a board game from Boyfriend, and I got a shiny new 3DS! Since it's black and my old DS was blue, I've decided they are Shadow-tan and Sonic-tan, respectively.

Which leads to the main point of this: Does anyone use Swapnote, and if so, do you want to be silly with me? My friend code is 3866-8983-0489. If anyone has a 3DS, feel free to add me... just comment here and let me know so I know who you are. :D

I got tagged.

Wed Dec 21, 2011, 10:13 AM





Rules:
1) You must post the rules.
2) Answer these questions.
3) Tag ten other people.
4) No tagbacks.
5) Nothing about "you're tagged if you read this!"

Questions!
1) Tell me about your music style.
      
...Um... what style?
No, seriously, I listen to literally everything. There is not a single genre of music I avoid entirely.

If you're asking what I listen to most, though, rock and pop music.

2) Give me your top 3 of favorite songs.

A) "Setsunarensa," RADWIMPS
B) "Boku-chan," RADWIMPS
C) "DADA," RADWIMPS

3) Tell something about them.

Most importantly: RADWIMPS is the greatest band ever. But, individually...

A) This song is beautiful and its lyrics are touching. It made me cry while listening to it long before I knew what it even meant, and now knowing the lyrics only makes it more profound to me.
B) I wish there was a full translation to this song (the closest I've found is Google Translate, and, well...) but what I do know of the lyrics is ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE and hrngh I just love this band. And their sound. And that they don't destroy English.
C) Seriously, this song is just insane. That's about all.

4) Please give us the links so we can judge if you're a moron or not.

A) www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wBkyP…
B) www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Fhy7i…
C) www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yy6XeG…


5) SING TO ME!

I tried singing once.
It's on YouTube here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=8jKrXw…

(I'm better in person OTL)

Now, um, tags...

um...

I hate tagging people. If you want to take it, here. Have a free tag. There's a pile by the door.

Okay, really :

Fri Dec 9, 2011, 8:34 AM





Dear body,

WHY DO YOU DO THIS
No, seriously. I have things to do and classes to attend and I need to stop having an ebola cold, okay? Seriously.

Stop getting sick when I need to do things,

Kay.

So, yeah. I owe someone cover art right now and I was planning on opening up chibi requests on Twitter soon, but I think all of that is going to have to wait until I'm not slowly dying.

Also, I woke up to a big spider on my tablet today. :< I don't like today.

One last note, IN HAPPIER NEWS:

I won NaNoWriMo a while back. I think I'm going to turn it into a visual novel. Just thought I should mention it.

A quick update

Thu Sep 29, 2011, 6:27 PM





To everyone I owe stuff to: OH MY GOODNESS I AM SO SORRY

I'm back at RIT and I'm a lot busier than I suspected I would be. Despite taking the minimum amount of credits necessary to be a full-time student, the two major classes I'm taking seem to think I have nothing better to do than work for them, so I've had little to no time to get anything done.

If I still owe you something (commission or art trade), I'm working on it/some other stuff to make up for it all being so ungodly late. It still might take a while (project due on Monday... ughhhh...), but I am working and I am incredibly sorry.

I'd really better get to working on that project now. x_x; Run cycle animation, here I come...?

I got tagged, so...

Tue Aug 30, 2011, 7:51 PM





I'm typically not one for tagging people, so I'm going to blatantly ignore the rules of this little meme-thing and just answer the questions because that's how I roll.
Thank you for the tag, though, :iconberri-basket:!

1. Do you like chocolate?
I love chocolate! It makes me happy.


2. What would you do if a hoe came up to you in the street?
I'd wonder what a a piece of garden equipment was doing walking around. And probably panic.


3. What's your favorite drink?
Flavored lemonades. I prefer raspberry/blackberry.


4. Do you like me?
Sure I do! If I'm not outright cold to you, I probably like you just fine. XD


5. If Joel stole Bim's pencil, who took Carl's diamond?
The llama.


6. Is Minecraft cool?
Eh, I imagine it'd be a good time-waster, but I don't play myself.


7. How often do you lose things? (Ex: The Game)
First things first: ;n; why you do this. As far as losing things, I lose my belongings all the time, and I very rarely win games.


8. If up is down, where's the cake?
It is, in fact, a tart.


9. Is Slenderman real?
Dear anything that has the possibility of being holy, I hope not.


10. Do you own Steam? (If so, input username too)
I do! I'm either ChromaticDawn or Electrorobo... it should be Electrorobo, but Steam is a bit weird with my username change so it still registers me as ChromaticDawn half the time.

More frustration: About Points

Wed Aug 17, 2011, 5:01 PM





Clearly, my mentioning it down in the commissions section did nothing, so let me clarify this one more time:

I don't have points. I think they're kinda stupid, honestly-- I need money, not points I can only use on deviantART. I have a college education to pay for, you know?

And even if I did have points... coming and asking me, on my page, to donate them to you is outright rude. Coming to do it more than once is outright offensive. If I had points, I'd be using them to keep my subscription, not to donate them to beggars!

Again, if you have no idea what this is about-- it wasn't you. I'm just very frustrated with people who only want things out of me and don't even consider my feelings....

Why I don't do requests

Sun Aug 7, 2011, 7:43 AM





Okay, seriously. I have no problem working on gift art for people I like, but this is just getting ridiculous.

I am not anyone's personal art machine. I do not exist solely to draw things for others, I do not exist to continuously change the things I've already finished for others.

The fact that people just keep asking, regardless of how much I say 'no,' is really getting upsetting at this point.

Note that none of this is directed towards any of you guys-- deviantART is actually the one place I DON'T get spammed with art requests. I'm just getting really fed up with this.

So, since I now actually have a journal skin and it comes with the handy little box for commission and request info... (speaking of which, this journal skin is huge, I hope I don't have to re-arrange my page to keep it ;n; )

COMMISSIONS ARE OPEN!

Admittedly I have not got a single clue how these things work, but I gotta start somewhere, right? ;u;
As far as requests go... =n= No. Unless I offer, which I have been known to do, I just have too much of my own work to do.

I'll go about setting up a custom box for commission examples in a moment. ^^;; Eek, this all feels so weird... probably because i don't deserve to be commissioned OTL

now to rush to get Rotten Heresy and Chocolate done before the next round of UTAgame ffff
I know I said last journal that I might be inactive for a while, but my antibiotics have been working a lot better than I expected and I'm feeling a lot better. ;u; My cough has decreased significantly and I'm not having weird fever-dreams anymore, so I'd say I'm good to return to the internet. XD;

For those of you who left comments worrying about me-- thank you!! ;u; I would say that a million times if I didn't think you'd all get sick of reading it. It means so much to me.

Back to art. I have lots of things to do. x_x;
So, I have about a million and sixteen things that I need/want to get done, both for UTAU and just for drawing purposes.

I intended to get quite a bit of that done over my vacation this past week, but... well. I got sick while I was up there, and while we thought it was strep throat at worst, turns out I have pneumonia. :D;

So while I know I owe people things and while I'd love to get some new videos up on YouTube and such... I'm not sure if I'll be very willing to do much of anything until this is over with. x_x;

I'm back from Tora-con! (Admittedly it's a 15 minute walk from my dorm, but ssh.) It was fun in some ways and really agitating in others, so I'll cover both.

On the fun side: I got to cosplay and hang out with my marvelous waifu :iconkawaiibubbleschan: for two whole days. And she and :icondizzy-tan: bought me a cake for my birthday!!;0; I LOVE YOU GUYS.
Artist's Alley itself was set up... terribly, to say the least, but I'll cover that later. I was sitting close to (next to, after our table partners left on day 2) :iconoceantann: and :iconsakurachan776:, and that was really fun. They're really, really nice. ;u; Also, I got to draw commissions for Ocean! (And yes, I am stupidly excited about this still). On my other side were some really funny people who liked Dr. Horrible and they let me draw Horrible x Hammer yaoi. XD And by yaoi I just mean a stupid joke and Hammer looking positively terrified. But it was still really fun to do. XD

As far as the selling itself went, I did really well. I made $75 in profit, although admittedly I spent $40 on a Sailormoon pillow and a book from Ocean so that actually came out of my earnings. When I figure out how PayPal works, I'll set up commissions on here... I really enjoy doing the custom keychains, and those sold really well, so maybe I can keep making money off of them? ;u; My lovely waifu didn't do so well with her sales, though, because people are dumb. :< So you should all go commission kawaiibubbleschan now. Do eet.

Okay, now time to cover the really, really terrible parts of the con. This... this will be fun.
Firstly, I knew I hated screaming fangirls already. I can't stand loud, high-pitched noises, and squealing fangirls are just loud, high-pitched noises wrapped in bad costumes and an obsession with pretty anime boys. But imagine sitting in a room full of squeaky teenaged girls, all of whom start sounding the same, nearly all of whom are screaming about OMGYAOI, for 8 hours straight. It is the quickest way to get a migraine that I know of, and it didn't help at all that we had two such fangirls right next to us for the first day. Also, I knew about half of those screaming fangirls, and I hate them with a passion that can fuel the flames of a thousand suns. And they just. Would not. LEAVE.
Speaking of that, what the HELL, Tora-con? Every other year I've done Artist's Alley, I've ordered half a table (as has my partner) and we both share one whole table. This year, they stuck two other girls on the other half of the table, which left Jess and I really cramped and awkward. We actually had to crawl under the tables on day 1 to get in and out, so I didn't stand for 8 hours because of that. Not like our table partners cared. They switched out people every ten minutes, squealed about everything under the sun, constantly had their friends blocking off our table (admittedly, I got revenge on day 2), and were just generally rude and inconsiderate. One of their friends nearly knocked over Ocean's sign and she didn't even care. ARGH.
They also split AA into 4 rooms in a building on the academic side of campus, which doesn't seem like a long walk from the center of the con but it really is. Also, finding all of us was a pain because the rooms were badly labeled, and the tables were laid out badly which means amazing artists like Ocean and Sakura lost money because no one could see them when they walked into the room. :/ They also lied about where badge pickup for AA was in the email, so hooray. :/

To be honest, I hate Tora-con. Yes, it's a convention at my college, so you would think I would be happy, but no. It is never managed with any sort of forethought, the fangirls are all intolerable, and it's just an infuriating experience all around.  But will I keep going? Yes. Because right now it's the only place (aside from UBCon, starting next year) where I know for certain I can get an Artist's Alley table and transportation, so there' really no other option. Siiiiigh.

Well, I'm off to take a shower and head out for classes. Ciao!

EDIT: One last thing I forgot to mention, I posted another UTAU video. www.youtube.com/watch?v=4v1qES… Please go watch it if you have the chance? ;n; It would mean a lot to me.
