Crafts and DIY projects were a core feature for our readers in Shojo Beat magazine. Books on Japanese fiber arts and crafts, such as amigurumi, have been difficult for readers to obtain in English, so I wanted to help bring some of those great patterns and projects from Japan here! These books will be published under the VIZ Media imprint, but you will be able to hear about them here too.

To start you off can we have some random headcanons for ayano so she isn't just a lifeless husk
Sure thing friend !
- She has problems expressing her feelings rather then not having any. Her mother has abused her and tried to shape her into a “ Perfect girl “ to follow in her footsteps so ayano is pretty much shaped to be this way
- She does have legitmate interests and can find actual happiness and fun in things, some of those things are : Taking walks, Looking into cute new fashion trends ( though she doesn’t usually buy anything because of her mother ), Reading stories online, Sitting under the sakura tree and watching the other students go about their bussiness.
- She really loves rilakkuma !!!!!!!
- She can make friends but she would rather not because, at this point in time, she finds them to be a bit of a burden and sub consciously is scared to trust people
- She probably doesn’t actually like senpai, she is probably more desperate for someone who would love her ( and senpai seems to have a reputation for not rejecting girls, so perfect guy for her )
- She takes care of herself mostly, even when her parents are around
Summary: Technically, he didn’t break his promise: You would never forget this birthday.

“You’re not funny.”
You narrowed your eyes and hissed into your phone’s camera, “Don’t you ‘jagiya’ me, Park Chanyeol. You promised!”
Chanyeol huffed in frustration, the gust of air pushing his fluffy bangs up to reveal his forehead. “I know I did, jagiya, but-”
“But nothing. You said, and these are your exact words, ‘I promise on Rilakkuma and all his friends that I will be home for your birthday, come zombie apocalypse or My Chemical Romance reunion.’ And you said it in English too so you know I would remember it. But yet here I am, 3 hours until midnight on the eve of my birthday, alone and annoyed and-”
“Aish!” he interjected. “Do you ever shut up?!”
You jerked back from the phone in disbelief since there was no way in hell Park Chanyeol was talking to you. “Excuse you?”
Chanyeol leaned forward and growled, “You heard me.” You opened your mouth to speak but he firmly stated, “I’m not done speaking.”
You huffed, “Well neith-”
“Did I say you could speak?” he snapped. The sudden assertiveness and aggression the normally tenderhearted and passive man was displaying was making it very difficult for you to string together coherent thoughts as the flames of anger singing your heart quickly blazed a white hot trail down to your core. Smirking, he leaned back and husked, “I painstakingly laid the most meticulous plans for your birthday and I would hate for you to be unable to enjoy them. So be a good girl for me and stay quiet.”
A beat of tense silence passed as Chanyeol waited for you to disobey him. The brat in you really wanted to give him hell for silencing you, but your gift was on the line so you decided that just this once it would be okay to sacrifice your pride and be obedient. Seeing he had your complete compliance, he slid off his tie and popped open the top button of his crisp button down before he calmly said, “I promised you I would be home in time for your birthday and I will keep my promise. But due to the storms rolling through Macau and out of safety concerns, the jet has been grounded for another 6 hours. So, I’ve called in a favor and I am certain you’ll enjoy it. All you have to do is be good for me and stay quiet until I hang up. Can you do that for me, baby?”
You nodded your head affirmatively. Chanyeol smiled softly before he took a deep breath and began to passionately rant about his boring day in business meetings and how much he hated rubbing elbows with old, stuck up CEOs and their entitled sons who knew little to nothing about anything besides using their family name and money to get ass and be dicks. Honestly, his tirade was getting a little too repetitive for your liking, so you opened your mouth to sassily ask how much longer–
As if on cue, the doorbell to your penthouse apartment rang loudly, fracturing your thought and silencing him. You glanced up in the direction of the door with a puzzled look on your face. Packages weren’t ever delivered personally unless explicit instructions to the staff were given. Looking down to your phone screen, you were greeted with a smug looking Chanyeol. “Aren’t you going to answer it?” Internally grumbling about what in the sam hell the lanky ass man you loved was up to, you slithered off the couch and made your way to the door. Just as you were opening it, he stopped you and said, “Happy birthday, jagiya. Remember…” Chanyeol leaned forward until only his lips were shown and husked in the deepest, raspiest voice he could manage, “Daddy loves you.” Abruptly, he hung up the phone.
“This better be the oxblood Gucci boots I wanted,” you mumbled to yourself as you opened the door. Instead of being greeted by a box with a massive bow on top, you were faced with an entirely different gift. “That’s not Gucci.”
Hey guys! So, I got to go to the Character Box here for the first time in a while today, and if you don’t know it’s a shop that sells anime/cartoon paraphernalia and I feel like I got soo much stuff ^^;;; So I thought I’d share what I got with you guys~ it wound up being around $40 for everything, which actually isn’t bad for places like this… ^^; So, starting from the right, a cute little Pusheen keychain plushie and notebook, Rilakkuma chopsticks+holder, absolutely adORABLE MECHANICAL PENCILS -
CAN I JUST SAY, I LOVE THESE CHOPSTICKS SO MUCH, I can’t wait to eat with them~ n0n (definitely using them as an excuse to have ramen tonight ahahah) Oh, what’s in that clear box at the top, you ask?
OKAY LOLOL SO. The Rin keychain is already out of his packaging because when I was sick with the flu last week, my sister and her boyfriend bought it for me and brought it home to cheer me up because they knew he’s my favorite, so when we went there today I just had to get the Haru to go with him ^^;; the destined pair must stay together right. ♡ they’re soo cute n-n I’m probably going to hang them in my room somewhere. And I’m guessing the butterfly keychain was supposed to be for Rei, because there was no name on it or anything… But I bought it anyway cause it’s pretty ^^’ also!! I wanted to use this opportunity to show you guys the Rin and Haru necklaces I bought online as well! I’ve never mentioned them before, but I love them so much.. I wore the Rin one out today ^///^ and then there’s the Rei badge which my sister bought for me ages ago because that’s the only thing from Free they had at the time xD;
I hope you guys enjoyed seeing my new trash I mean my new treasures ^__^;; I had a really fun day and I’m really excited to start practicing kanji in my notebook~ it feels official somehow n-n
