Windows NT was based on OpenVMS, and we all know NT-tan is the mother of 2k-tan. So, 2k is technically a distant relative :3

In my stories, it's established that VMS took a young 2k under her wing for combat training; I haven't ironed out the full details as to why, beyond 2k reminding her of FreeVMS-tan, but I might eventually do that in a future short story.

@Pent: I guess? Dunno much about Deadpool to be honest.
She probably does ship you, and because it's Homeko we're talking about, it's probably with another guy on this forum.

ah, fair enough. -w-

and here, have this:

ME - Deadpool

Vista - Wolverine

Hope she at least pairs me with Stew, or maybe Bella since I can honestly go either way as far as gender >w>;
...or Kari <w<;;

Your wish has been granted. Homeko now ships you in a threesome of some sort.

Perfect for porning.

EDIT: I has inspirations now! :D :D :D

Headcanon dump time!

2k-tan doesn't care much for soda. She has a dislike for Mountain Dew (my favourite line of soda), and in particular the Code Red variety. Inu-T is similar, though her dislike is less. The reason for this is because the Code Red worm was named after the Code Red variety of Mountain Dew because the people who coined the name happened to be drinking it at the time. It affected primarily Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 2000, especially the latter, hence why 2k's dislike is greater.

95-tan is a huge fan of the show Friends. She particularly likes the characters Rachel and Chandler. Her favourite episode is "The One With Windows 95." Now, that episode I just mentioned is not a real episode. It's actually "code" for the Windows 95 video guide, which stars Jennifer Aniston and Matthew Perry, the actors for Rachel and Chandler respectively.

On a rather interesting note, Commodore Matthew Perry is the guy who is credited with pushing Japan to interact with other countries (particularly the US) some 14 years before the Meiji era, which is the era where 95-tan's clothing comes from. I could say that a young 95-tan somehow met with Matthew Perry, and it was a very very important moment for her.

The 9x-tans (meaning 95, 95 OSR2.1, 95 OSR2.5, 98, 98SE, and ME) are deathly afraid of radiation poisoning. This is because they are the OSes affected by the CIH virus, or the Chernobyl virus, as the anniversary of Chernobyl incident, April 26th, is when the virus activates.

The anniversaries of the release of an OS would be their birthday. Now, I would have tried to use beta dates and whatnot, but seeing as most people would celebrate the birthday of Windows 95 on August 24th, as well as it being pretty hard to find the very first specific dates for the beta, the earliest most could have gotten the OS (which means RTM dates for Windows-tans) would be a logical second choice.

There, I think I have enough headcanons for now. *phew*

I usually don't like to take things too off-topic, especially in an on-topic thread, or make unecessarily brief replies. 

But no.

Just no.

I don't see how your reply was unnecessary, to be honest. I feel that you're completely justified in your no. I'm sorry that I decided to have a fictional character ship you without your permission.

And I also aplogize if that last sentence sounds sarcastic, it really isn't. It's not easy to apologize for something this unusual on the internet. Dx

For everyone's sanity, I now declare that whom Homeko ships on this forum will be kept deliberately vague. It's because there are people here who will get wierded out, and, no worries, those wierded out will be left alone, but you don't need to tell me, as I'm keeping it vague, partially also because I don't know nor care about who she ships people here with, all I know and care about is that she does. I will admit that I should have done this to begin with, and to anyone who got wierded out, but didn't say anything, I'm sorry.

Edit: A headcanon just hit my head. NT-tan represents the earlier Windows NT servers, while Inu-T represents the early Windows NT Workstations.

Penti-chan

I don't think he was offended or weirded out by it, but probably a good idea in case someone else takes it the wrong way

Bella

I don't think he was offended or weirded out so much as he was "I am already in a ship. With my girlfriend/waifu Bells. And that is THE OTP."

Though I do like the idea of Homeko being a mad shipper.
I think it would be funny if she crackpaired her various OS-tan colleagues ... XP Pro x OS X Tiger, Homeo x Hacchan, GNU HURD x Linux, OS/2 Warp x OS/360 ... I'm really not sure if she's aware enough to know who HURD or OS/360-tan are, but it's an amusing though nonetheless. 2K-tan would probably sideeye her so hard when she voiced enthusiasm for those pairings, because 2K-tan is The Voice Of Reason.

This is more or less accepted, but you are correct that it's difficult to pin down birthdays for many OS-tans because the start date of their system is ambiguous. I generally use the date a system was initially developed as a birthdate, especially for older systems, since so many took YEARS to develop. For instance, I pin Multics-tan's birthday as 1963 or 64, either the beginning of Project MAC or the year that work began on building Multics. It wasn't finalized and shipped until 1969 - I count that year as the date of Multics-tan's debut.

Not a bad idea.

As it stands, it's generally speculated that NT-tan represented NT up to version 3.x, and Inu-T represents v. 4.x and later. That's not far off.

It does raise the question if she ships any of the crackpairs I've come up with. IDK if she's know who Multics Whirlwind is, so Whirlwind x VMS might not be one she thinks of...but there's always PDP-11 and 2k (As hinted toward by a single quote in a short story I wrote a few weeks ago) -w-;

EDIT: Why did I say Multics. I meant Whirlwind ^^;;;
(New crackship maybe?)

Oh. I didn't know that. xD Good to know.

She has, and most notably the first two. She probably doesn't know who those two are, but if she did, then I'd bet she'd do some shipping. As for the first two pairings, she ships them very hard. Unfortunately, Hacchan is oblivious to a lot of things, so she probably sees Homeko as a rival of sorts. xD

2k probably does, again because she is The Voice Of Reason. xD

I tried that, but it really didn't work out. I couldn't find a good amount of the dates I needed. I'm going to go back and try it again, however.

I know I ship it, and Homeko probably ships it too. xDD

I honestly think that both of them represent NT from 3.x to 4.x, but NT-tan represents the servers while Inu-T represents the workstations more out of necessity for my OS-tan canon, as Inu-T is the natural homunculus of NT-tan. Any OS that can be a major server can transform a body part, often a limb, into a homunculus that represents a workstation. For NT-based Windows-tans and kuns, it is extremely dangerous, a reference to how most servers aren't Windows servers if memory serves, and the only Windows-tan that uses it regularly is NT-tan.

Bella

Interesting, I've never heard a theory like that before. I guess the Unices & Linuces might not be the only ones who reproduce via budding ... ehehe.

winduko

The only one who truly has budded is NT-tan, and at the cost of her left arm too. It's not a safe procedure for non-Unices/Linuces to say the least.

The only two times a non-server-tan has made a homunculus is when 95-tan has her right middle finger turn into CE-tan (long story within my headcanon, but meant to reference that CE is  Windows 95). I chose the middle finger because of CE's size, and the idea of having someone utilize the middle finger as a weapon of sorts greatly amused me; and when CE-tan herself made Mobile-tan. Neither are permanent (actually the homunculus, if it takes up a body part, is never really permanent, but NT-tan has her reasons to not have a left arm.

Basically, for non-Unices/Linuces, the homunculi thing is Body Horror.
