It's time for the yearly Valentine's Day Collage. Prove to the internet that you love your waifu with your assorted paraphernalia and food offerings. Take a picture of it and resize it to 400x400. Use online tools if you don't have photoshop. Additionally you can include an optional quote underneath your picture which I will type in. Submissions will be open until February 16th. See you then!
I don't know why that candy heart got me to literally laugh out loud, but here's my entry anyway. Quote is
>You are my haku anonymous
Quote is provided in image
>hfw she gets my present
Prove to the internet that you love your waifu with your assorted paraphernalia and food offerings.
>Prove to the internet that you love your waifu with your assorted paraphernalia and food offerings
What do you mean by assorted paraphernalia?
No I don't, that's why I'm asking. By the smug anime reaction pic I'd assume you're referring to onaholes and such, but I wouldn't consider them appropriate offerings for a waifu.
You give her a big hard kiss on the cheek followed by intense handholding whilst cuddling after which you caress all over her delicate neck and facial features.
None of that is paraphernalia though.
It technically is included as possessions, so thereby paraphernalia.
How are kisses, handholding and caressing personal belongings? I've you're gonna pull my leg at least put some thought into it.
For one, they classify as goods, which they certainly are. Also, they are things, which although are immaterial, belong to one's self and may be provided to others. A person, very obviously, owns their means of producing and exchanging kisses as well as instances of handholding and caressing, which they provide their very own limbs into the creation of.
Immaterial things cannot be possessed though. In order to possess something you need to be able to control it to your own will, which you can't if it's immaterial. I was asking a simple pragmatic question in order to get ideas to prepare my pic for the collage, I don't desire to continue this line of conversation.
Paraphernalia is simply any belonging that pertains to a specific activity. Who says that in order to possess something it must be a tangible thing? Any real thing may be owned, as may be intellectual property, for instance. So are any actions of one, including the exchange of romantic gestures and movements which although immeasurable and infinite in amount, are still of one's own will to manipulate and provide them. For the collage, then, paraphernalia includes, by definition, the actions given to your valentine, which are your own and not anybody else's, because they are provided by you and are of your own essence.
Quote: I'll find you one day.
Thanks as always collage anon.
White dress counts as paraphernalia?
Can someone post the Xmas collage? I can't find it.
Christmas thread is still up:
Someone posted old collages here:
Has the Christmas collage been made yet?
Yes but I didn't save it and the thread is gone.
I hope you know I'm piggybacking off of you twice a year.
I'll bake a cake for her on the 15th, idk why we always start this threads too early.
I'll probably make some curry and get mine some candy. I've never actually taken part in one of this threads, but here's hoping I can from now on.
To give anons a chance to prepare, especially those living on NEET time.
If it wasn't for S/a/turdays I wouldn't know what day of the week it was.
Let's dream a dream together.
Can't I do this on actual Valentine's Day and post something else vaguely related to Valentine's/Date Night for the collage as early as possible? Maybe it's not meant to be a race but it sure feels like it. Honestly I'm just faking it 'til I make it and copying what everyone else does, I have no idea what I'm doing.
It's open until after Valentine's to allow just that. I plan on setting up a whole thing for my waifu on the date and putting the picture here. I'm not sure why OP makes these so early.
I found a very handy guide on how to find your true love.
Feel free. We can embrace the loneliness together.
T-thanks anon. Y-you too.
I have no idea what I'm doing.
"The very thought of you makes my heart sing, like an April breeze on the wings of spring."
You are talking about images like the ones where you have dinner with your waifu, right? Everyone seems confused and it's confusing me too.
That's pretty funny.
For fuck's sake newfags, we're not asking you to build a starship over here. Short answer is "Yes."
You can pick a nice picture of your waifu, resize it to the required dimensions, and post it here along with an optional quote.
But that is pretty low effort and what OP is saying is that if you really want to show her how much you care you should take a picture of you force feeding your daki chicken tenders and post that instead. Or your waifu's figurine covered in cum next to a tray of store-bought "sushi." The possibilities are endless and the choices are yours.
That's what I thought, but the amount of people who were just posting pictures of their waifus threw me off. I agree that it's a simple concept, and I just wanted to make sure it was clear for everyone. Everyone should treat their waifu to something nice, if they really love her.
Please do not hot glue any figures, let alone your waifu.
You make my kokoro go so fucking doki doki.
Fuck yeah anon. Thanks.

I can't post such picture because my waifu is not from /a/...
If you're that person who has been posting overwatch pictures in these threads, thank you for showing some restraint.
No I am not, it is far WORSE than that, lets say my waifu's name starts with an L and ends with Loud.
>worse than /v/
Oh god anon.
I'm not sure if I can go get some cake and stuff by Valentine's, so is it alright if i just went and left a pic and the quote now, and replace it if i can get cake and stuff?
I've been participating in this since 2016 but i just wanna do more this year, I guess.
Is that a weirdly shaped glass or an optical illusion?
>Rin didn't make it in.
I was struggling over whether the keyboard was making me think it was curved or not. Enjoy your dinner.
Like a shining star in an endless night, you caught my eye and guide my life.
Nuh-uh sweetie, cartoons are not Japanese and are too ugly to be waifus in the first place.
But where are the chopsticks you silly 外人？
Love is forever, true love is 2D.
Papika with dog food gets me every time.
I wonder what I should make this year. Making nikuman a second year in a row doesn't feel right, and since it's on a Wednesday it'll be hard to plan cooking a meal around work and family. Maybe a small dessert?
She's the only one who can mend my broken heart.
"where it not for you, i would had perished long ago. you give me meaning and strength to carry on"
Unrelated to valentines but still waifu related post :
Made a cake for lilly, her birthday is tomorrow, i'll still bake something new for valentines and properly post it on the 15th so it can be added to the collage
Did you try to spell something with those candies?
Its braille, it says:
Thats so cute. I hope Lily gives you all the hugs you deserve for that.
Faggot here. Is your waifu blind?
You're a pretty cool fucking guy, anon.
Yea lilly is blind, im still practicing i plan on making something cuter and bigger for valentines, just wait!
Interesting spacing you have there champ.
>He doesn't know about Katawa Shoujo
You're missing out, anon.
I meant to post on that years one, but I got really drunk and passed out on my computer desk.
I do now. Thanks, anon!
Must have been too busy closing pools to notice, or whatever it was we did back then.
The absolute madman did it, best birthday for the best girl.
The tea is french vanilla, its delicious, the cake (actually a scottish butter tablet) is more than delicious and everything worked out in the end, now next week i'll do something even bigger for valentines, last unrelated post from me, thanks meidos.
Now that, that is dedication. We could all learn a thing or two from you anon.
>he never played Katawa Shoujo
God bless you and your wife, sir. It always makes me happy to see another man improving himself and his very life for the sake of love.
I was thinking of making an ebola shrine with some papercraft ebola dolls, but this puts that idea to shame.
and its not even my final form but with all seriousness, dont let it discourage you, if you set your mind and are willing to spend some money and time to do some risky cooking it can come up amazingly.
What does the cake say? Is it in braille or am I just stupid
Unfortunately from all my searching, the only "official" merchandise that exists these days of my waifu are an overpriced poster and T-shirts I'm not wiling to spend $30 on. I've considered going the budsies route, but anon's link didn't go anywhere/I doubt I could get lucky enough to have them make a second goddess of pestilence and decay. I put together an effort at one point to make a custom dakimakura of Ebola-chan, but I couldn't find good images that would transfer into proper color scheme/aspect ratio for the Daki (I might go back and try again but it will be far too late for Valentines day).
I'll see about working on those papercraft dolls and maybe putting together some red candles and an effigy. I don't like bleeding for her too much since she gets hungry if you give too often, but I'll have to think of a proper sacrifice (maybe some red wine or red jell-o?). I've got a skull from the original Indiana Jones sets (1980s) that I'll have to implement somehow.
Reinclude the same Blue-coated emi pic as always, cause i am not at my computer and cant get onto it until march
...for until one has made himself beautiful he has no right to approach beauty.
I had a curry dinner with her, but was too afraid of her getting bullied for being /v/ to take pictures. I fucked up though. She deserves to be in the collage as much as anyone else.
"The blazing inferno in our hearts assures victory in all we strive for! Together we are unstoppable!"
It's Valentine's this Wednesday!
"You'll always be the greatest light in my life."
Alright, /a/. I got the candles, the wine, a game of Risk for us to enjoy together, now I just gotta make the papercraft dolls. Issue is the only printer in the house is guarded fiercely by a nosy 3DPD imouto so I gotta find a way to it between now and tomorrow evening.
>game of risk
You're going to give her the Congo, aren't you?
A dangerous mission...
"I'll keep you in my heart forever."
>A dangerous mission...
I've managed to successfully print out my papercraft. The imouto became suspicious, but she was too busy playing Zelda and drinking copious amounts of Tito's Vodka that I bribed her with to fuck off. Unfortunately my vehicle died this morning and the
bitch imouto will be up until damn near midnight so my waifu and I will have to enjoy ourselves later in the evening than planned.
>implying your imouto isn't kawaii
Don't you see man? She's not trying to tease you or tell on you. Your imouto loves you and is merely getting jealous of your waifu. That's why she's suspicious. The solution of course is to keep plying her with booze on Valentine's day and continue ignoring her she's 3DPD.
Have a good time with your real love tomorrow!
At least he’s spending time with both of them because of his love. Nothing wrong with that.
>Realized the papercraft printed in black & white

>Couldn't follow up on half of what I wanted to do
>Smell like wine
I'll post my pictures, but I'm just gonna finish up that bottle of wine in shame/depression with my waifu, /a/.
I had two bottles originally...
Quote: "There is no cure for love!"
Pick whichever works better for you. Tonight's been a rough night trying to impress my waifu, /a/.
Anon, you worked really hard. I'm glad.
Anon I am sure she appreciates the effort you dedicated to your special day together.
Thanks anons, I can't help but feel this year wasn't enough, but I'll keep working hard for my waifu. She deserves that much if not a lot more. I'm gonna read a little bit and go to sleep. I gotta work in five hours and that wine was pretty strong (and Ebola-chan's a weak drinker) so I'm gonna hit the hay here soon.
Sweet dreams with Ebola-chan anon.
Aight, >>789324 here.
I finally got cake and got prepared.
"I'll always rely on you, so let's never leave each other's side"
I went through some shit to get the money for this..totally worth it.
"I hate this romantic stuff, but you are that golden exception"
Each of you have done a great job. I hope you enjoyed your day together with your respective waifu.
"Let's continue towards our dream"
Hello everyone, hope you are enjoying your baked goods and body pillows! I have long since shed any desire for romance, 2D or otherwise, so today I will be taking the role of faceless fat doujinshi man and sullying you're waifu. I eagerly await the finished collage, so please excuse the poor penmanship and have a nice day!
I'm sorry I wasn't here for last Valentines, but I am here for you now and I'll always be with you.
"I'll never leave your side again."
Just woke up, made some crème brulee with lilly, the steak is grilling and the cheesecake is ready, tonight I'll post the photos
"Even after all these years - My love will never die"
Nano and I shared a white Valentine's day together.
I even made her a card. The wiring for in was a little shoddy, but she liked it.
Im done eating the filet mignon and im starting to dig into the cake, i dont feel drunk and i have to work tonight, it was a wonderful evening and i think its one of the best valentines yet, i'll try to surpass it next year!
My other camera broke and i had to use the shitty phone camera, next year i'll get a proper one and record it in full 4k
I hope to one day be able to dedicate myself to my waifu as much as you do, anon.
Its just a matter of improving yourself, becoming independent and growing into a better person.
The curse you placed on my heart can never be broken, nor do I want it to be. Forever and ever.
Since I don't have any merch of her, I decided to cook up something.
"I don't have a way with words, but I do love you!"
forgot to crop to proper size
"Ich habe mich in dich verliebt."
No access to pans, so no attempted cakes this year.
Better setup where the cake isn't the moon. Use this one instead.
"We will love forever"
I'm really bad at thinking up a quote. I think I'll go with this one.
"I'm glad that you came into my life."
I tried a couple new recipes this year: chocolate lava cake and rum balls. The cake was simply divine. The rum was a bit strong in my opinion (alcohol isn't really my thing), but taking a little of both in each bite worked wonders. The cakes were a bit hard to slide them out of the ramekins properly, so I gave her the better piece. Tried "dusting" them with powdered sugar/cocoa powder like the videos suggested, but I guess you need a sifter for that. Doesn't look as nice, but I guarantee it tastes just as great.
Also got her a box of chocolates from the best chocolate/sweets shop in town. Hope I don't give her diabetes with all this sugar.
Shoot! I forgot too.
By the way, if you fags wanna tune in or request anything, feel free.
In gonna pick only 1.
Good luck with halfchan, Claud.
That was case sensitive?
>I can't believe it's been 10 years
Was an accident.
2nd one it's less disturbing.
Enjoy the malware Claud!
I've got all the precautions set up
Back to your containment board.
Too drunk too care. Just figured fun would be appreciated.
I might listen later but I'm not taking any chances going into the thread.
That's why I posted it here.
Only spent 2 hours at home today. Wish I could have spent more time so I could have something besides regular dinner and coffee with her.
All of these pictures look great! It will surely be another great collage this year. Submissions will remain open for another 2 days as stated in the OP.
For my submission I made a cookie donut because I like cookies and my wife likes donuts. So it was a compromise. I love you patootie very much and am excited to see what the future holds for us in our next VR sim.
<I will never stop working hard for you. I love you my beautiful wife
I better see everyone here next year.
Yes, this. Even if I'm not here because I can't be, I will be here in spirit. Remember that every waifu is sacred, and while she might forgive you, surely she wouldn't want you to go to Gensokyo early just to meet her when there's so much more you could do for her here.
She's just my type and I love her.
You don't enjoy sharing a romantic night with your waifu? Staring deeply into her eyes as you enjoy her company over the meal you've lovingly poured your heart into for her? Offer to do the dishes on your special night to show you care? Making sure to wash your hands and face to keep her daki clean? Put on a movie you both like and fall asleep on the couch together? Come now, anon. It's all a labor of love, and that's not labor at all.
No quote this year.
I'm glad you did something nice. I've just been neck deep in work since the new year started and haven't even had a dream much less time to take a good picture.
Quote: You will forever be in my heart.
"88 mm is all the love you could ever need."
Could you perhaps be a daki enthusiast?
And someone who brings happiness to other anons?
Had some yellowcake with her.
Couldn't do much as I'm busy but well, I spent the valentines studying physics so that's something.
Too shy to take any pictures, but I had a nice time yesterday drunk and watching Joshiraku.
"Stay away from 3DPD."
A busy day, but worth it in the end. It was a lot of fun!
"Bury me to the bottom of the earth!"
Happy belated Valentine's Day to you and your waifu, anon.
That's pretty great anon.
"Take it easy, you've got a long way to go"
It's cut season, and the meal I made is as hideous as it is low-calorie. She loved it though, and she's looking forward to seeing my six-pack. I promise when I'm swole next year, she'll be getting the most chocolates.
All I want to do is be a big guy for you.
Neither of us are very good at big gestures, but I think some cookies and a pleasant evening in bed reading was good for both of us.
"You fit perfectly to me"
Anon your story and your dedication to your waitfu are an inspiration to all of us. You should be proud of the effort you put in. I'm sure she loves you for it
Wouldn't call myself an enthusiast. I like seeing people happy. Wh-what kind of happiness are you asking for, anon?
Getting swole for your waifu, that's a noble ambition.
Not completely satisfied with the final product, it does not seem to reflect the amount of time I spent on it. Maybe I can redeem myself on White Day
No need to add a caption, the text on the screen will suffice.
Also, ugh, deep-fried pizza is way heavier on the liver than whisky-laced tea, but I can gladly endure it in the name of Love
I changed my mind OP, I'll go with pic #2
Why did you post an empty white square, anon?
Why are there so many who take Shinobu as wife on this board?
You are the worst kind of bully, anon.
Maybe they all wanted to follow Araragi's example.
Monogatari has an excellent selection of females to choose from.
Submissions are closed! Thank you all for participating! Ill get around to compiling it soon.
As far as I know there's 3 including myself in the collages. She's best girl and toppest of lolis of all time.
>becoming your waifu's stand
At last I truly see.
Does anyone have the new year's one?
I have Christmas, I can't remember a New Years one.
Christmas was the New Years one.
And at least one who didn't participate.
>last one of these I did was in 2015
>I was a neet living with my mum
>my computer was set up on a cardboard box with a 5:4 monitor
>now career is going strong and have a proper desk with two screens
>better camera phone to take photos with
>still have the mouse pad
I'm sure Shizune would be proud I'd hauled myself out of that rut.
That's great, Anon! Good for you!
Good job anon!
Although that carboard box thing does have a certain charm about it. I myself have a thinkpad on a shoebox on a milkcrate on the floor in my room but it's by choice really.
Your waifu is proud.
It hasn't even been a week since it closed, anon.
My apologies, I guess I am a little impatient.
Here is the result. We had a total of 56 contributions. Lowest it has been! I thank you all for contributing and making this a fun experience to keep the spirit of this board lit.
It is always great to see familiar faces in the collage. The true patricians and loyal husbandos are those who keep at their dedication. Those that fall behind are a reminder of what happens when one stops loving. Remember that your waifu is an extension of yourself and proof that you are capable of love. Do not squander that love to a 3DPD.
Absolutely fantastic, great job as always OP.
Excellent job as always anon! I hope to see everyone here next year as well, never stop loving your waifu! Always be faithful to her - because she loves you back.
Never forget that.
Looks good, Anon. Might be the lowest it's been but I think everyone put a lot more effort and love in this year.
Great job anon!
And of course it's always nice to see a face I recognize in the collage!
Why is mine missing?
All you husbandos here better show up again on White Day.
Your arrangements have been really creative these last couple of collages. Keep up the autism.
Shiiiiiet ill add it in tonight.
Looks amazing man, great work.
Very very nice. Keep up the good work.
Good job, /a/non! This really does bring spirit to the board... thank you for your time!
F for Grape-kun.
Is that Lenin cake, or a burned cheese cake?
Either way, it looks better than anything I made in the past months. God speed, anon.
Ah, you forgot my quote but that's ok. That's beautiful, anon! Thank you so much for your hard work!
He already said that he would add >>797706 here: >>797757 So I assume it would be no trouble adding your quote as well. Replying to ensure collage-anon sees this.
It's absolutely gorgeous! It might be a lower turnout, but it looks like more people went the extra mile with food and shrines this year. Truly great to see
What's your quote?
Late to the party but thanks as always for including a waifu-less faggot like me.
Ah, no, it's all good. IF you're making edits though, then: >>794714
Okay here is the final updated version to add in the missing Anon and his waifu Lilly. I guess I had a blind eye. I am not gonna do a 70MB png version because the quality is not that much different and just wasteful overall.
No Valentine's day would be complete without you.
If I ever were to be unfaithful to my waifu, then it would certainly be with you, collage anon.
S-speaking strictly p-platonic here.
Excellent work, anon!
Marvelous! Thank you very much for your work!
Now off to the beach
