Hello! I’m working on saving up about $1.5k+ to go toward paying off medical bills, getting a few Christmas presents for friends, and saving up for a dog (reasons for a dog can be found here).

This is my new commission post for the time being! These pictures are only samples of what I can make! I have to make these products from scratch if you order, and you can choose colors you would prefer most. If you’re not sure about a color option, feel free to ask me!

1. Paypal payments only.

2. You must pay for the item before I send it, and if you are able, paying in full before I start is acceptable. If you are one of the people seeking custom commissions, however, I will ask for a non-refundable downpayment to cover materials, as I cannot resell a custom commission easily as I can the items listed here. See below for details.*

3. No refunds—I try my best with the product at hand (and if there is some issue with it, I’d like to know), but I cannot control what happens in the mail. I do my best to make sure things ship safely (packages not getting wet, et cetera).

4. Please be patient and wait for me to make these. Some take only a few hours, others take a few days. And if I have a lot of orders, it can take a couple of weeks. It is much longer for custom commissions, which can be a couple of months.

5. I can decline a commission at any time for any reason.

6. U.S. shipping prices are included in price listings. If you are interested but live outside of the U.S., please message me with your country and we’ll work out the price of shipping and packages. (:

I will try my best to finish these as promptly as I can. I’m quite hopeful about making my goal before the year is out, and if I do, I would love to hold a giveaway of crocheted products!

PRICES

(pictured above)
Fluffy octopus or squid: $23/each
Miniature octopus or squid: $8/each

SPECIAL: If you order a bundle (shipped to the same place and ordered all at the same time) of $25+ worth of amigurumi from me, I will throw in a free octopus or squid phone charm of your color choice. Pictures below:



*Custom Commissions
I am only allowing for one or two of these at a time, and they can’t be overly complicated due to some problems I am having with my right arm. Ripping out something and redoing it several times to gauge it can be strenuous, as opposed to objects I’ve been making that already have patterns I’ve created and memorized. But if you want a custom commission, please send me an ask and we’ll discuss whether or not it is possible for me to do it/if I have time/the price. I do like making something I haven’t before to liven things up/break the monotony. (:

Tales Cats

taleslations:

Among ToX2’s cats, 19 of them represent Tales characters. Unfortunately, some of their names were mangled in the localization. Here is a list of each cat, their localized name and the character they are supposed to represent:

Whale Commission! :D I hear his name is going to be Jonah!

I’m still taking commissions, too, to go toward paying medical bills/Christmas presents/getting a therapy dog. \o/

There was a time where you where ignorant

There was a time when you didn’t know what something meant.

Maybe you were lucky and found out before you accidentally hurt someone. Maybe you had to learn the hard way and upset someone; or worse, you were so certain you already knew that you attacked someone for trying to correct you, told them they were wrong, tore them down and hurt them because you were steadfast in your ignorance.

But you apologized, didn’t you? You found out the truth, understood that you’d made a mistake, admitted to your wrongdoing, told them, “I’m sorry, I didn’t know, now I know, I’ll get it right from now on.”

Or maybe it was too late to say sorry to them - you didn’t really know them, or don’t anymore. But still, there was a moment where you realized you’d been an idiot and vowed to not make the same mistake again.

You learned. You understood that you had been ignorant.

When applied to yourself, you understood quite well that ignorance didn’t make you a bad person - just someone who didn’t know, and probably didn’t know that they didn’t know.

So why the hell would you attack and harass someone else who has already sincerely apologized for their mistakes? I know there are exceptions, moments where someone’s sheer abuse or assholery makes them beyond forgiveness, but I’m not talking about those extreme cases. I’m talking about people unintentionally misusing terms because they didn’t know what they meant, or had misunderstood their meaning. I’m talking about people who are young enough or simply sheltered enough that they haven’t learned things yet, just like all of us once were. I’m talking about people who made genuine mistakes that they have sincerely apologized for and are still being harassed for days and weeks later, often by people who had no involvement in the original transgression.

You don’t have to forgive someone just because they apologized, no. But if you think bullying them to the point of tears or leaving a website is ok, then you need to go back and yell at yourself first for all the times YOU apologized for a mistake.

"Followed for art not annoying text posts" well fuck me if an artist can’t write on their own blog or talk to their followers and sorry you don’t give a shit about the person beyond absorbing their free content

solarpillar replied to your link:NNWM
what is this writing buddy thing?

It’s a way to stalk others’ stories/word counts throughout the month.

I can be found muttering, “c’mon, you can do it” to my friends in my room no less than 6,000 times every November while glancing through that page. :’)

There isn’t much of a function outside of that, I think. Just a way to keep track of what others are doing with their stories.

tell me who you are if you request to be writing buddies, please

I don’t want to befriend a bunch of people when I don’t know who they areeee, sorry

…I vaguely remember writing that synopsis.

…I vaguely remember writing that synopsis.

Any of my followers participating in NaNoWriMo? O:

I’m updating my profile atm. I signed up a more private account last year, but I started writing for NaNo back in 2009. Will be working on a story called Planetary Boundaries, a fictional novel about colonies in space. Or, as one friend put it: lesbians in space.

…It’s not that romantic, it has horror elements.

I haven’t slept and everyone in the house wants to scream at each other.

23. Which of your ships deserves better writing?

More like “which of your ships deserves writing at all” which kind of covers most of them, especially the poly ships. It has to exist to be written well or terribly either way. That aside, I guess I can think of quite a few. Maybe most of my ships, to some extent, given that I tend to gravitate toward smaller fandoms?

Not to say there are not good fics out there, but I can (rudely?) think of so many pairings that are written kind of bad in general.

I want to say out loud what ones and why, but I’m afraid of getting ripped into, so I guess I’m not rude enough. I could name quite a few. :x

I’m actually brave, ‘cos I will say Fayt/Albel is one. Literally a fandom that was always “hehehe seme Albel/uke Fayt” with all the blushing and whimpering and bad characterization I could ever not want!
