Bday gift for cptlfrghtr by BellaCielo Bday gift for cptlfrghtr by BellaCielo
"Why do we always end up repairing old computers when I visit?" -Lydia

Warning: these are trained professionals. Do not attempt tea parties around vintage computers at home.


A gift for ~cptlfrghtr, featuring two of his OCs: the fearless Federal Zombie Agency inspector Lydia McDonald (right) and the depressive old-technology aficionado, Mori Atusko (left). She's smiling here because, well, who doesn't get that certain warm sense of happiness being around old computers? My best approximations of a PDP-8 and PDP-11 are also featured here, as well as a VT100 terminal.

Happy birthday, and thank you for being such a wonderful member of our community and great person to talk to about any number of random, geeky and/or obscure topics. :hug:

Pencils + paper

"More tea Lydia? <3" -Atsuko

AHHHHHH BIRTHDAY GIFT! :la: I SHALL KEEP IT FOREVER, PRINT IT OUT, AND HANG IT IN MY DORM NEXT YEAR! People without souls, that's who. Looks solid to me, but that may just be the DEC luv + Lydia + Atsuko getting to me :la:

Awwwww, now I feel special :blush: Also I feel terrible for not finishing Reunion yet. Glad I can be of service!

THANK YOU SO MUCH, THAT'S THE BIGGEST COMPLIMENT I COULD EVER GET! :la:

I suspect a lot of the population is soulless then. :crying: Glad you think so!

Of course you are, you're one of the few people I'll approach in serious discussion of old computers (although I'm rapidly becoming less shy about that subject) + one of my favourite amateur writers here on dA + one of my muses so far as OS-tannery and storytelling is concerned. It's not a problem, you'll get around to it when you get around to it... ^^

Now I just need to get a frame for it and like, a dozen other things ^^;

Well, yeah. I do think so.

That's very nice of you to say, and I shall continue to the best of my abilities. It's getting closer, I have.... ideas....

Haha, that reminds me, my dad's still trying to find a frame for this drawing I gave him for Christmas. He can't find anything that'll fit the paper though, since it's rather quite huge. ^^'

That's okay, it makes the old computer fandom more exclusive! It's like being in on a secret that like everyone is unaware of! :V

No, it's very nice of you to say it's very nice of me... *enters infinite loop of compliments* Continued, and then some. ^^
