Apartment Secured (and possibly haunted)

So, I’ve managed to find a spot with WiFi, so here’s some updates:

McK and I are staying in a temporary place until Tuesday, but we’ve gotten the approval for our new apartment. We managed to afford a two bedroom with a huge balcony in our price range because of the “rumors of ghosts”. Our relator assured us that they’re just rumors and not to worry. Once McK’s boss explained that foreigners aren’t worried about ghosts, he told us a lot more about the story. If anyone’s interested, I’ll tell you more about it later.

It looks like we won’t be able to get the internet until we’ve gotten our bank accounts, which hinge on our having an address. So after Tuesday we should know how long before we can get our internet set up. So Skyrim until then, everyday. Plus cleaning and cooking. Yay!

Update: now in Japan! Made it through the first 14 hour flight, plus 3 hours of immigration, customs, and other airport debacles. 35 minutes until we head up to Hokkaido. 

In the meantime, here’s a still from ANA’s skyview video about Hokkaido, which included not only these great Hakuouki Hijikata images, but also featured the voice actor from the games/tv series talking to an ANA employee about various Hokkaido specialities. I couldn’t even handle it. They even had his vampire form. Seriously. I couldn’t make this up.

Hiatus

Finally leaving to Japan. Had trouble with Tumblr while at home as many have noticed. We may not have Internet at home up to 2 months. So I will be on hiatus until then.

Thanks for being patient with me, guys! The queue is set up for the next few days, which should at least cover while we move.

Next doujinshi pages

As many of you know, I am in the middle of an international move. As such I have been rushing around trying to get things done and dealing with a lot of last minute changes.
Today, while trying to get my computer and other work-owned electronics cleared up and returned, I accidentally deleted all of the finished translations for the Walking Middle Earth doujinshi.
I hope to get the queue back up and today’s page posted, just later in the day. Sorry about that

Hey there! So, you may have seen these body pillows around. You may have thought, “Wow, I sure want one of those.” Well good news! I take commissions for these cuddly lil nuggets!

THE SQUIDS:
Each squid is handmade with love from fleece, cotton, and felt, and stuffed with hypoallergenic 100% polyester filling.

SIZES:
Two sizes are available: an 8-foot body pillow, and a 4-foot cuddle buddy or travel pillow.

COLORS:
I can find just about any color, within reason. I am limited by what the fabric store has to offer, but the selection is great, so I can try my hardest to get the exact color you want.

UNDERSIDE PATTERNS:
Again, I am limited by what the fabric store has to offer, but I can find just about any pattern from paisley to polka dots in nearly any color. If you wish, you can request that I choose an underside for you based on the main color you choose.

OTHER OPTIONS:
I can fit the squids with an eye color, if you so desire. If not specified, your squid will come with traditional black and white eyes.
Also, three different highlights are available for your squid: original (photos 4 and 5), circles (photos 6 and 8), or crescent (photo 7). If not specified, your squid will come with original highlights.
Additionally, you may request the firmness of your pillow. There are three firmness options: firm, regular, or what I call squishy. If not specified, your squid will come with regular firmness.

PRICES:
Large squids are $75 (shipping not included) and small squids are $40 (shipping not included). Shipping will be $20 nationwide. International customers, I apologize. But soon hopefully there will be international shipping available!

HOW TO ORDER:
It’s easy! Just send me a message on tumblr or email me at tentacle.club@gmail.com with the following information:

Color
Underside color and pattern
Size
Shipping Information
Eye color (optional)
Eye highlight (optional)
Firmness (optional)

I will reply to your message with the email address you’ll send money to via PayPal. If you would rather send a check or money order, I will provide you with that information at your request.

OTHER INFO:
Please know that these squids are not made in a pet-free home; if you are allergic to cats please be aware that despite my efforts to keep them away from my cat, he still might have sat on the fabric while I wasn’t looking. Also note that these are made with FLEECE; if you have a fleece allergy, please do not buy these pillows. The filling of the pillows is guaranteed hypoallergenic BY THE COMPANY, NOT BY ME. If it turns out you have an allergy to the stuffing, sue them, not me. I am not responsible for any injuries that happen from your enjoyment with my pillows.

Thank you all so much for the support so far! I hope you consider purchasing one of my squids, I have a 100% satisfaction date so far. And please, spread the word!

balyhane!

LOOOOK!

Okay, these are super cool, but if I came home and found one on my couch I’d probably cry.

15 Things that make me happy

Tagged by the ray of sunshine that is notanightlight.

For those that have tagged me for the 5 nice things challenge, my responses are here. Didn’t want to spam another 5. 

Now onto 15 things:

1) the sound of thunderstorms and the smell of rain in general
2) falling asleep with someone you care about in your arms
3) a cool forest in summer
4) moonlight illuminating something unusual
5) bees!
6) tacos! Especially if there’s guacamole involved
7) moss! Bonus if there are ferns involved
8) pets sleeping on you
9) the smell of wood burning
10) a whiff of incense on a breeze
11) going on a walk to lose yourself in nature
12) bats
13) foxes
14) small, but fat birds hoping around
15) the silent sound of the world after snow fall

So many people I would tag, but I don’t remember who all has done this or not. So if you follow me and you haven’t done this, please do it, I would love to hear your answers.
