I feel obligated to remind the devs that VD stands for Venereal Disease.

I'm pretty sure that's the joke.

The setting of the game is a place that's abbreviated as StD, after all.

Happy Singles Awareness Day today! (Unless you have a significant other, then I hope you make sweet sweet love.)

Ah me and my other would go to a nice cafe with poets reciting their bitter sweet poetry, then we'd go to a landmark with a nice night time view where we'd talk about anything, on the car ride there I'd play the mixtape I made for the occasion. At the end of the day I bust out a really cheesy home made gift and share warmth under the blankets while watching Scott Pilgrim vs. The World or some 90's anime. Now there's an idea, now go do it and make sweet sweet Valentines Day love. (this is actual advice I gave my friend last year,it worked)

Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World was kind of iffy for me. Honestly, I didn't even like the comics that much. I suppose it was funny enough, but all the characters were unlikeable assholes. The only Bryan Lee O'Mally comic I've ever liked was Lost at Sea.

Somewhat unrelated, but is all the hype for Puella Magi Madoka Magica justified?

I hope that everyone else enjoyed their Valentine's Day as well.
On a side note, I had completely forgotten about Natalya's heterochromia until looking at that image.

Ah, but the asshole-ness was intentional, the movie is about emotional maturity and growing away from being an asshole. I personally think Edgar Wright did a great job, as usual.

It darkens and boldly the Magical Girl genre, and it's animated by Studio SHAFT. I watched the movies in theaters, it was really good!

Finally, someone who agrees with me!

Th only characters I liked were Knives and Kim, and 50% of that was because they made out and the other 50% is because the both hated Scott to some degree, unlike everyone else who put up with his bullshit.

I don't mind Valentine's day, except for those times when your partner says not to do gifts, then they change their mind at the last minute. Then when you get your gift, you feel bad for not getting them something, then they feel bad for making you feel bad. Or they get angry...

Sounds like a woman being a... woman.

"No, I don't want anything" means "Surprise me."

I think I might be a man, then.

We promised to each other we would not buy any gifts for Valentines Day. Well, to be more specific, I had to promise not to buy any gifts.
It would be unfair, because she can't leave the house without me and her condition won't allow her to enter a shop anyway.
Also, no flowers and no chocolate candy this year. She was never interested in flowers and avoiding candy is one of our top spot priorities.
Its not about weight (she should gain some weight to her 43kg), but we are aiming for a healthy and balanced diet with lots of fruits and vegetables.
Besides, we are saving money for our next apartment. We always have to save money. No unnecessary expenses. How suitable for art students.

I brought her breakfast in bed. I guess It wasn't really anything special, I do this every now and then. Nevertheless, she gave me a smile,
which was more than I could ask for. After some time, we managed to get out of bed and started our workout. These are small exercises
but they are important. She tends to get low blood pressure and I have a long record of cardiac diseases in my family. She always reminds me of that.

To complete our daily training, we went outside, to the most popular falafel booth in Frankfurt, which is luckily only a mile away.
Trips to downtown have become a much bigger undertaking ever since we can't use the tram anymore. We are holding hands.
People sometimes look at us. I must agree, our heights do not match well. I'm 1.85 cm and she's barely 1.53. I guess we make an odd looking couple.
Or its just my imagination again, trying to find something strange in my behavior. We silently make our way through the snowy streets.

It's a relief to hear no numbers. 1 to 3 means discomfort. 5 means fear. 10 is a panic attack. It is a code that we agreed on some time ago.
Whispering numbers. She don't want bystanders to notice her anxiety. People are easily disturbed by her rapid breathing and teary eyes.
Yesterday we reached an 8, when I went into a shop to look for a medical bandage to support my arm. I'm glad we can wait out in the open.
Our order takes its time. She seems a little unsettled, but this time its just the cold. Nothing to worry about. I give her a snug hug.
I can't see her face. It makes me worry if she really wanted a hug. I try to reassure myself. I am her boyfriend. There is nothing wrong.

Every day, she tells me numerous times that she loves me. How much she loves me. And that she'd never let me go. But maybe she just scratches
my itch to comfort me. I really need a lot of assurance. I'm always afraid of making her angry or to disappoint her. Do I distrust her?
Thats crazy. My brain is an asshole. I try to shake off those unsettling thoughts. "I love you, little sparrow." She replies with a silent smile.

On our way home, I hear her mumbling and rubbing her ears. They must be freezing. I take off my glove and slip my warm palm under her woolly.
She gives me a teary look. But a good one. I love those moments. They are an honest reminder, that she really wants me to be near to her. I feel save.
I'm a little sad that Valentines Day is such an usual day to us. Maybe every day is Valentines Day? Maybe none is. I'll invite her to sushi this evening.
There is not much more I can do to make this day special right now. I'll think of something awesome for our fifth anniversary this April. I like to think that.

Surprise sex!
Also, "no" means "maybe" or "definitely, but don't make me say it".

Don't blame me for the rape apologism. Most rape jokes are, after all, made by women for women. Then again: most women don't consider them jokes but as "romantic drama" or "erotica". Note: not porn. Porn degrades women. Erotica rapes them.

Alright, I'll add it to my "shit I need to watch" list along with Serial Experiments Lain, GANTZ, the new Evangelion movie and Grave of the Fireflies.

I completely forgot Natalya's heterochromatic eyes. Well, that adds to her charm :3.

I spend my valentine day alone, but for what I care, womens, they all want our heads on a golden plate.
*suddenly realise he turned into Kenji*
Fine I don't have a bottle of whisky.
*remind himself of the bottle of whisky hanging in the closet.*
... Shit.

Happy late feminist plotting day. :D

I bet Kenji became "Kenji"-ish on VD too...

Poor Kenji, him against the Feminists

They are everywhere, even in my school, disguised as a history teacher... Better stay on guard!"
