no time for a tan

For the first OC Roundup, I figured it was high time I did a complete post on what console-tan designs I was responsible for!  When I made XBone-tan in the /co/ doodlechat back in 2013, I never figured it’d become as popular as it did (I mean the only place I ever posted the doodles was here, and back then I probably had something like 25 followers).  It’s sort of crazy how the whole thing took on a life of it’s own.  My intention was merely to play off the old Windows ME-tan comics from 2chan that were popular back in the day, focusing on giving the characters a good deal of personality based off the flaws or quirks in their products.  Here are the relevant tags for the -tans I created, listing them off from left to right in this picture:

#V. Flash-tan
#GameBoy SP-tan
#DS tan
#GameBoy Color-tan
#Mac-tan
#PC-tan
#Vita-tan
#PS4-tan
#Xbone-tan
#U-tan
#3DS-tan
#2DS-tan
#GameBoy-tan
#GameBoy Advance-tan
#Dreamcast-tan
#Switch-tan

Admittedly, there’s other takes by other artists in those tags (after all, there’s no possible way for me to say my -tan design is the “official” one for the system, and many people come up with really excellent designs for the systems too), but that’s why I decided to include the above picture as a reference for which designs were mine under each of those tags.  Hope it helps!

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
Move on, leave, run away, escape this place… but don’t forget about me, about us, about this town. Always remember where you come from so you can appreciate how far you’ve come.
