Quote from: winduko on July 26, 2014, 03:25:24 PMApple-tans have the surname of McUll (Úll is the Irish word for Apple.)

Quote from: Chocofreak13 on July 26, 2014, 07:38:05 PMalso, as long as you keep all those names as PERSONAL canon, it's fine. cause a lot of them have futaba ("actual") canon names by now.
Quote from: Chocofreak13 on July 26, 2014, 07:38:05 PM@canon vs personalcanon: idc what people do in their own canon, provided they don't start calling it fact. that was a huge source of friction between me and a few members awhile back, as they were quite forceful with their ideas and the thought of us being the only english site, that we get to write these things as fact. if you create the -tan, you do. if you don't, you don't, and when it comes to the original -tans, to me, japanese fact is paramount.
Quote from: Krizonar on July 26, 2014, 08:09:34 PMI have no objections for this headcanon. Seems Appley enough for me.
Quote from: Chocofreak13 on July 26, 2014, 07:38:05 PMat some point i should continue the os-tan comiket. i had an idea for an ending and everything....
Quote from: Bella on July 26, 2014, 09:41:21 PMI usually use the surname Macintosh in my stories.
Quote from: winduko on July 26, 2014, 08:26:19 PMExactly why I like it. Surnames like McIntosh and Apple are too obvious for my personal use, but I need the surnames to be fitting to their OS. I like adding in Genius Bonuses, as I like to learn, and I enjoy the subtlety I can get from my learning.
Quote from: PentiumMMX on July 26, 2014, 11:03:13 PM@Duko: LOL. Cairo, IL is one of those weird things you stumble onto; like how there's a small town floating between Palestine and Dallas, named Eureka...which became the source of many jokes with my parents, because of a TV show about a small town by the same name that we were watching at the time -w-;
Quote from: PentiumMMX on July 26, 2014, 11:03:13 PM...I think I just realized that, within the universe of my stories, 2k has a thing for apples ^^;I mean, as established in canon, she dated Sonata for a while, and is very close with Rodney McIntosh
Quote from: Krizonar on July 26, 2014, 11:03:50 PMI'm mostly interested in my own family, though reading about other tans is of course always fun.I just hadn't really thought about family names at all regarding tans, as I didn't feel their naming system was necessarily like ours. So in my universe, it isn't. They have a name like Antares and a designation like System 6.Of course, everything is up to interpretation, so it's perfectly fine they use human naming conventions with last names and such in yours.
Quote from: PentiumMMX on July 26, 2014, 11:24:34 PMWell, although I never finished it, there was a yuri in the works detailing 2k and Sonata's relationship; with a planned scene that would have them in bed together...and although it wouldn't go into detail on what they're doing, it would imply enough to know they're doing more than share a bed =w=
Quote from: winduko on July 26, 2014, 08:26:19 PMIn fact, it's what made me want to write my own OS-tan thing.
Quote from: Chocofreak13 on July 27, 2014, 02:20:59 PMwhat!? seriously!? that old thing!?haha, that's goddamn high praise, especially since i haven't worked on it in years (Ace's High is my main)! thanks kid. ^^
Quote from: Chocofreak13 on July 27, 2014, 02:20:59 PM@Cairo: hahaha, Cairo! i remember the -tan i made for her, i think? i uploaded stuff about her? bells would remember if i did or not. if i didn't i'll try to track down the sketchbook.to be fair, your approximation wasn't too far off of the personality i created for her....she's REALLY bitter and spiteful towards 95-tan, although it's a one-sided rivalry. it was actually a running gag that she was going to confront 95, who didn't remember her in the slightest, and it would just make her madder. xD;
Quote from: Chocofreak13 on July 27, 2014, 02:20:59 PM@last names: last names never came up much in my comic, but i think i toyed with the idea of using the surnames Madobe and Ringo. considering they literally mean "Window" and "Apple" in japanese, it wasn't really inspired, but accurate.what tripped me up was making "human" names for the various OSes. though i still like Shiroyuki-sama. -w-
Quote from: Chocofreak13 on July 28, 2014, 04:48:37 PMconsidering they're all Windows, i never saw much of a reason to differentiate between trees. if nothing else, you could always say the NTs married into it or something.
Quote from: Chocofreak13 on July 28, 2014, 04:48:37 PMShiroyuki was the name we agreed on for the Apple ][.
Quote from: Chocofreak13 on July 28, 2014, 04:48:37 PMhrm, if it helps any, i could always post my sketches for the Comiket. i have too much going on atm to consider picking it back up on a consistent basis, but at least you could see how the first arc of it ended. i was pretty proud of the outcome, anyway. ^^;;
