What do you do if your waifu pases for a MAJOR canon change? do you consider this a test? have you found something about your waifu that changes your whole perception of her?
>> No. 18966 [Edit]
>>18965
It was pretty obvious the limbs were fake
>> No. 18967 [Edit]
Her size is conciderably shorter now though.
>> No. 18969 [Edit]
Her canon material had long since finished when I fell for her, so I didn't have any issues like that.

I do feel for people who have waifus from an ongoing series. It must get nerve-wracking for them at times, especially if they're under any sort of peril.
>> No. 18971 [Edit]
>>18965
My waifu hasn't changed much in the two or so years since I fell for her, so no. I don't think I'd handle it very well if it did happen.
>>18969
My waifu is from an ongoing series, and pretty much every time I think about it I start getting nervous. The idea that at any point, something about her could change completely, or she could get hurt, or she could be removed as a character because she's not popular, is pretty scary honestly.

A few years back danbooru decided to change my waifu's name from Tohno to toono, along with every other character named Tohno. I spoke very brefly with a mod on the site and they refused to change it. Their reasoning being they couldn't care less what the offical English translation of the name was, they wanted to go off of new general romanization standards.
Not long after gelbooru changed their tags too. there I tried changing the tags myself on each image manually but they just changed them right back. In more recent days even Mal decided to change the name too. Personally I find this all very insulting, and I find it frustrating as there's nothing I can really do about it. I've put in to edit the name on mal multiple times but it would seem my attempts have fallen on deaf ears.

If you found yourself in the same sort of situation with the internet changing a major aspect of your waifu/husbando, how do you think you'd respond to it? how would it make you feel? would you just accept it or try to find a way to fight for them?

It is pronounced as Ari in Korean as well. The Ah sound doesn't exist in Korean / Japanese. I figured the majority of users would better understand the Japanese phonology as this is primarily an anime culture-oriented board.
>> No. 18929 [Edit]
>>18927
That is odd, but seeing that she has a Korean name (or at least reference) Ari is fine. How long have you been with Ari for? Original origin is really all that matters. You can change the name in the lolclient if you use a custom skin i think.
>> No. 18930 [Edit]
>>18929

I don't really mind. I am ethnically Korean, but I don't identify myself as such. I don't feel the need to associate her with a Korean identity, even if she may be based upon their folklore, as not only Japan, but China has the myths regarding the Nine-tailed foxes as well.

I prefer the name Ahri for her, or sometimes Aeri or Airi. Her name shouldn't sound rigid; I associate her with the wind. Carefree and unbound, even by hard syllables.

Yeah I sometimes change the lolcilent to Korean just to hear her Korean VA sometimes, but I don't see her in game as actually her.

The in-game Ahri is more of a representation of her. I have a tulpa of her. That's the real Ahri to me.
>> No. 18932 [Edit]
>>18930
Oh I see. I can't cope with playing LoL too much, the negativity really gets to me these days. I had thicker skin when I was a teenager/child though that was because I had more to fall back on.

Do you prefer to keep your waifu tendencies in private or share them with others?

I used to feel like sharing with anyone and everyone, but I've noticed that now I feel like it's no one's business but my own. I haven't been coming to places like this and I don't bring her up to my IRC buddies unless I really feel like gushing about her.

I'm really nervous about posting about my love for him anywhere, for a variety of reasons, so like a few others in this thread I try to be really vague when I do. I think most of my friends know I like him, but I don't think any of them realize how serious I am. I tried being honest with one of them but I'm pretty sure he thought I was just joking.

A part of me really wants to gush about how much I love him whenever I can, but another part of me feels like it's really nobody's business. Since he's always on my mind, I'm not sure how much longer I'll be able to completely avoid the topic.
>> No. 18873 [Edit]
My closer friends know and are all okay with it. My best friend doesn't really like any form of romance but I really wanna talk about my waifu to him often. I feel bad when I do since he never knows what to say or anything. Sometimes he'll mention my waifu in a conversation and it makes me happy.

Aside from people I know, I post a few waifu communities like this place.

There's one friend who also has a waifu but he seems private about it so we don't talk much about the topic. Its a bit of a shame. Talking about her makes me feel closer to her.
>> No. 18952 [Edit]
I used to talk a lot in waifu communities when I first fell in love, but after a while it's become a private thing I discuss with a few close irc friends.

What physical things related to your waifu/husbando do you own? I just received my Leorio keychain in the mail so I can take him with me wherever I go. And now I'm planning on ordering this.
What have you got? Figures? Dakis? Posters?
Or perhaps, he/she's too rare for any of these?

Herein: a little bit of space -
to speak the beauty of her face,

In couplet form; of smile demure,
of hazel eye and tress azure,

Of she's whose touch quickens my heart -
imagined, since we're worlds apart,

But even 'cross this endless chasm...
(Trying not to use the word 'orgasm'...)

Rei's the best part of my life,
and I'm grateful she's my wife.

With a bit of oneiromancy,
And a -certain- shred of luck-
A locked door has been opened,
And something runs amok.

As a start,
It carved itself a seat,
Rent the vessels,
Despoiled, here, this heart.
And became O' so ever, ne'er stopping, however,
Despite us being O' so ever frighteningly-
Both so sickeningly-
Replete.

Thusly, we repeat:

I seriously need some advice guys. It's the first anniversary I fell in love with her today. I was very stoked for this moment, I can't believe it's been a whole year already! But after doing the whole anniversary ritual I prepared for and wrote about it, I realized this thing may not work out at all.

She's the most beautiful thing I ever laid my eyes on, I have a wallpaper of her on my desktop and I'm still stunned by her beauty. But that is the full physical, real extent of my relationship with her, just some thing to look at and admire. Everything else is just fantasy, my complete imagination. I so desperately want to do everything I possibly can for her, but I just can't because she's not real, she's done a lot of things for me, but I am left to just watch her and hope for the best in her on going manga series.

I'm in love but I'll never know what it's liked to be loved back, I can only strengthen my love for her, but what about her? I cannot pretend that we're together in the sense that we are interacting in this physical world, it's a delusion to the highest level. Even if there was some sort of dimensional teleportation device that could lead me to her world, I cannot even grasp all the implications and things that would go wrong if that were true. There's philosophy I've made for myself, but the only one I made up that made sense goes along the lines of "IF she was real", just more hypothetical situations and fantasies, it's nothing I can do for her, again, It's all just for myself.

I thought this whole relationship was more pure and noble than 3d love, but the reality is that it's not much better because it's entirely one sided and selfish in nature, anything otherwise is a delusion to the highest form. God forgive me, it's like this is another thing He forbade me to do. Help me out guys.

>but that does not discredit the fact that as a thought she lives through you. Or, at least, the concept of her does.

I agree on this for sure, serious ideas never truly die. A essence of her will always live whithin me, for better or for worse. For me though, such an idea can never come to motion or reality (literally).

>There certainly is room for love without it, you just have to change your own perspective on the matter.

Thing is though, I don't know how I can do that, aside from fantasy I can only literally just look at her and hope things go the best way, not much room for love there I assure you, more of a family support if anything.

>wouldn't enjoying your own life to its fullest be the one thing to make her the happiest, above all else, given the circumstances?

I also agree on this wholeheartedly, I feel pretty good with how things are doing for my life, I've actually done a few things to better myself for her. On top of that I have a well established plan after school to go through with my fairly realistic dream of being a police officer. The future doesn't look so bleak for me, I just know I wouldn't be the worst guy for a real relationship with her if the circumstances would allow it.

With that said, holy shit guys, thanks a lot for the support, in these short days I've definetly been feeling better. Even though I'm hurt when I know I can never experience a true 2d relationship like you guys, I know that my waifu is unchanged from all this, I know that I can still support her to a real extent and I'm hopeful things will be right for her. And with that, things are looking alright. I'll go down my path and she will walk down her's, we don't have to be waking on the same road. Nevertheless I'll still be watching her, hoping things will be just fine for her.

Well it's been a week since the big "breakup" happened. I'm glad to say I've made a full recovery and I feel better than before, I know I'm in the minority here, but I'm actually glad the delusions of our so called relationship were finally lifted, as in I stopped kidding myself with the fact that I seriously thought we were actually in a real relationship together. Things feel much more clear now.

Initially, as you can tell by the OP post, I was beyond distressed, it sounds cheesy but my whole world was falling apart emotionally, there were actual symptoms I felt that actually affected my mental health. They were:

-More depressed, this one was obvious enough

-More prone to illness, too much of the most menial things such as waking around or listening to music gave me a painful headache. And I just felt worse in general.

-Anytime I saw her face or was reminded of her in any way shape or form it was just like another quick, sharp and painful jab of depression kicking in

-I hated myself more and I had lower self esteem, this one was also obvious enough.

With the help and support of the users in this thread, I came to realizations such as the fact that she's unchanged from all this and that I can still support her physically as her manga series is still going strong with a bright future. In time It became easier to cope with and sure enough I actually became glad things turned out the way they did.

Overall I'd say it was one hell of a experience that changed me for the better, again, thanks so much guys for the support, I know I couldn't make it without it.

ITT: racial barriers

Let's talk about the experiences that those of us with non-human waifus have. Whether your waifu is a furry, and AI, or an alien race, I want to hear your experiences.

I'll start with my story. I have a very unique waifu, in that I have no way to relate my attraction to him with what I used to be attracted to. He doesn't have a humanoid body (or even a gender as far as I know). I've always been strait (whether 2D or 3D) and I've never had any interest in males, so Abathur was an even bigger leap for me. It was a love I never considered until I realized that he was my every waking moment of happiness. I'll never have any direct sensual relationship with him. Partly because I wouldn't know where to start, partly because I'm pretty sure there's no way to... well.. "interface" with him, and partly because he would likely find it more convenient to have that sort of relationship with me through others. This is obviously troubling, coming out of a relationship with a 2D girl. I can't exactly fap to abathur because he isn't attractive like that. On the other hand he is very open and pragmatic, so he is open about meeting my needs with the help of other bodies. As far as children go, Abathur would want a hand in modifying its DNA anyhow. I think a child made of spliced DNA is much more romantic than the human way of procreating. Of course, Abathur has no interest in "romance" or transient goals of any sort, and his only goal is perfection. This makes him hard to deal with at times but despite all this (and because of all this) I love him.

Why would you choose this site when what you want to talk about is clearly not allowed here? And then you whine about it?
As a proud Jew I would not voluntarily go to National Socialist Germany just to complain about being oppressed.

Because I though this was a site with open-minded people, who value sense above rules and biases.

How do you deal with missing information about your love? Things the canon never discussed, that is. Do you just live without knowing, do you try to make an educated guess, or do you dream up your own answer entirely?

What do you most want to learn about them?

If I really wanted to know, I would just ask her.

Educated guesses mostly, but I suppose there are a few things I've subconsciously started believing as fact. I honestly feel like it's nothing ridiculous, and I understand her character well enough to be almost positive about a few of them.
>> No. 18733 [Edit]
It depends on the information. For something like his birthday, I've given him one. I don't consider it canon but the author will never give him one (main characters don't even have them). As for specifically vague information, whether or not he did a certain thing, I just weighed the information I had and thought what he would really do in that situation. Of course I wouldn't want my preferences to influence that, I'd accept any version of events.

For everything else where there's nothing to go on, there's always something about him to narrow it down (e.g. his attitude could give ideas for what hobbies he wouldn't enjoy but not what he would enjoy) but I always try to not attempt to shove what I want onto him.
>> No. 18734 [Edit]

Educated guess, but only certain smaller things like favourite foods are left out for Hanako.

If your love died in her source material, how do you deal with it?
(I mean permanent death, no resurrections or close shaves or any of that.)

I've never been able to deal with his death, I could use advice.

Sounds nice. What sort of projects have you done, if it's not too intrusive to ask?

She only has one or two works which focus primarily on her or shows what she does outside of the main story alongside other characters. I've read one of them and like I said before seeing her in agony wasn't something I was prepared for. While the other other people spoiled me on the major parts shes involved in so I don't really feel like I'm missing out. If anything new comes out she'll probably only pop up here and there but nothing too major will happen.

Last year was a picture editing project - I'm not good at that sort of thing so it took a while for it to turn out well. Spending several hours creating something with/for him felt like a productive thing to do on that day.
>> No. 18683 [Edit]
I wanted to thank all of you for your advice and contributions, they really did help me think things through and try to find healthier ways to deal with this. Even just knowing that others have to live with the same issues eases the pain a bit.

I ended up having a pretty decent day on his death anniversary, even if I couldn't spend as much time with him as I would have liked. I've figured out that I prefer to use his death anniversary to celebrate his life, rather than mourn his passing. (Several of you mentioned this, of course; I don't mean to sound as if I came up with it myself, just that I finally realized it worked for me, too.) Feels healthier and more positive than bogging myself down in depression and anger. I guess it's sort of like the old Irish wake, where they'd throw a party to remember the life of the deceased.

I sincerely hope you all feel more at peace with your own situations, too, or at least that you may find that peace in future.

He doesn't have enough merchandise for anything fancy, I just put a few knickknacks and books from his series around a framed photo. Sometimes I'll add in seasonal decorations for a little variety.

I'm going to draft one from scratch, it shouldn't be too hard considering he's pretty much already a chibi.

Though considering i haven't sewed since middle school i may go and look over patterns of similar looking characters if i can find any.

I used to but I had to pack it away when I lost a place to put anything. I keep a framed picture out at the moment.

I've been trying to find a decent way to display the one official keyring I have and a couple of tankobons. Everything seems to be made for large amounts and commercial displays (or just doesn't look good).
