Time for Part 2! And to start of with, some pictures that somehow didn’t make it into the last post, where they belonged.
This is the museum display room where I’ve kept all the items I got from all of the weeding I did in old Arcadia. It took me a lot of rose sofas (not all pictured) before I realised I needed input from both Rains in weeding the town 😛 As a storage room, this turned out better than half the rooms in my house >_>
Speaking of my house…
My current house and garden, as per…… late February. Well, things don’t change much around here xP
Aand last random catch-up pic of the plaza bridge. Again.
Now we can get onto the Spring pictures post-cherry-blossoms, in somewhat-kinda-sorta-messed-up-chronological order (prepare for random) 🙂
Aaand this one continues on quite well 😛 I was using the villagers’ dialogue as a means of getting a zoomed-in pic of Rain in action outdoors. This one with Tangy’s help turned out the nicest.
Lol, this is what happens when you need to construct an oversize screenshot out of multiple sources xD Well, it was more interesting this way so I didn’t edit either doppelgänger out 😛
I made this to give a better idea of the area around the left side of Jeremiah’s house. Don’t ask me what my obsession with his house is at the moment; I don’t know x3
Now a bit of a (repetitive) gallery of my house and surrounds…
The river left of my house that I probably never exclusively take a picture of, haha.
(And this bridge nowhere near my house, lol 😛 )
Did I tell you my house gets haunted late at night? 😈
A stitched-together full view of my upstairs room in its current state ^__^
This is what happens any time you stop to enjoy a quiet couple of minutes in your own home.
So… Paula was sick. The shop was closed. In order to get medicine for her, I got stung by bees and asked my villagers to take pity on me, but nobody obliged.
I went to talk to Paula, she treated me like a usual bee-sting patient and gave me medicine 😮 Then she went back to shivering o_o So I talked to her, offered her the medicine, and she thanked me for saving her life.
Story tells itself.
At home already.
I never really got caught up in all the Marshal hype so I never planned specifically to have him in my town, but when his plot shows up on the 2nd villager reset for a new villager in a not-so-terrible-but-still-inconvenient spot, I feel that it’d at least be nice to get to know him for a while. Even overlooking his horrible concrete slab house, which I tried my best to beautify xP
After a couple of days of not playing, I was ambushed by Isabelle’s infamous “sombody’s moving” announcement!! D: But I was veeery lucky the mover was Paula, who would have been the ONLY villager I was willing to let go at the time. Phew!
Theeen, barely two weeks after Marshal moved in…
Another story that tells itself xP After seeing a superbly positioned new plot from the start screen when a 9th villager was due in, I thought now was as good a time as any to test whether the start screen had any hold over the actual happenings of the game. Nope.
I’m really testing my luck with this game… I need to start being more careful! 😆
And so then we had this gooorgeous little house move in behind Marshal’s, beside my garden hedge. Even if Marshal gets the boot one day, I doubt I will be letting this one go anytime soon.
“This one” being our second squirrel (not counting Nibbles way back when), the very tropical-looking Caroline.
… Her interior wasn’t quite as tropical as I’d expected. Beach-themed sure, but Caroline, you can do better. Cabana-better, *hint hint* 😉
This is a common scene now right after I come out of the house 🙂
Sooo I agreed to build the Reset Centre here on the path (like, literally on the path) to Retail, set up Lloid, paid it off…… and then chickened out by resetting xD
I think I must be going crazy though but I am still toying with the idea of building Resetti’s manhole cover somewhere around town. After playing AC for a while I’m glad that the early instance of my 3DS freezing on the Friends List was a one-off and other glitches are not so common, so I’ve opened up to the idea of giving Resetti his job back a little more.
On top of this, I really like the idea lately of having Resetti’s manhole cover in the middle of a regularly-used path, as a part of town and not hidden somewhere in a dejected corner. Additionally that gives the player the benefit of trampling his front door on a daily basis 😛 I’ve also seen some pictures of his door open on evenings after the rain, and the golden light it emits is so inviting and makes the surrounding area so cozy ^^
But anyway, until I can do it without resetting my decision, it’s still just an idea… 😛
Here’s different kind of object that propped itself in the middle of a path xD I don’t know why I find it funny, but I kept this guy and he’s still there in my town now.
Hide-and-seek with Marshal ^_^
Some more scenic pictures.
I thought I would be smart and block Saharah on the other side of said bridge
We made it.
An -I think- odd instance of a red rose appearing partway through a play session, not touching any other rose, meaning a villager didn’t plant it… What?
More Pete awesomeness 😎
My museum room for storing unorderable Gracie clothing, though after winter and spring, it’s already running out of space >_<
The Emporium’s name long enough in German??
A completed section of the art exhibit ^^ My parents actually went to Italy recently and saw that statue on the right 😮
After donating the worthy painting and viewing it beside the much smaller quaint painting, the low res of the larger works really becomes apparent. I really wish they had given the paintings a resolution based on their display size
Can’t resist x3
I think I’ve been secretly waiting ever since New Leaf was announced to catch this xP But my reaction is still the same… PUT THAT THING BACK WHERE IT CAME FROM AND GET FAR FAR AWAY!!!
I know people who sneeze like this.
I have no intention of building the police station, but I took Isabelle for a walk with me one day and tested out this spot by the cliff, where I’ve wondered if a villager could possibly move into. Well, still don’t know about the villager house, but the police station sure can
For one brief moment I was set on building the campsite here, across the river from the windmill, deciding it wouldn’t be an eyesore and figuring it would also take the place of the two streetlamps and freeing up a PWP slot. Wrongo, the campsite counts as one of the 30 PWP; it wasn’t even on the list -_- An undemolishable project that takes up a PWP count? No thank you.
Yet another random item that pops up in villager’s houses, this time Deirdre’s o_o
And of course some time between the last post and now was Bunny Day, and judging by the lack of images I have, I must have been either unimpressed by Zipper T. Bunny’s appearance in my town, the tedious nature of the event, or I was just tuckered out from taking pictures for the last three events. Most likely it was all three.
It was fun finding all the different eggs around town, but I think the repetitive and childish dialogue from Zipper just wore my patience thin with this event. Or his own lack of enthusiasm rubbed off. What would you expect?
I also refused to receive more than one picture of that ugly mug, so I now have these spare grand-prize tickets littering my museum room floor, that I think cost me to throw away. I did intentionally keep extras of my two favourite egg types, though.
This is yet another museum room (hey all 4 of them made it into this post :P) for storage, more for “normal” items and the odd un-orderable. I pasted my dress on the walls and floor and it looked pretty eye-catching xD
I took a visit to the lovely Citàlune in my dreams, set on a winters night under a majestic aurora. The town was decked out beautifully to match the season.
The interiors were equally impressive and special, with a lot of improvements and work done since the last time I visited.
Some clever ideas and unique decorating combinations genuinely took me by surprise, and they worked so well.
A few interesting houses at the model homes neighbourhood.
Using Julian to get a close-up of Gracie’s flag 😛
Why would you do that? 😦
Some silliness on the beach with a pair of lace-up boots 😛
On May 30th, I started up my game (in German, accidentally :P)… and Baabara was here to pick me up ❤
She took me back to her place, and it was odd to see myself walk into her house, but the door stay open 😛
Aww, thank you~ xD
“If you don’t blow the candles out soon, I will!”
Woah, calm down there Babsi 😛
. . . I’m not sure what Wart Jr. finds so great about wax-filled cake, but that’s what he says I’ll get if I don’t hurry.
“All the best… and um… good health and… cheer. When are we having the cake already??”
Oh Wart Jr xD
Back to my normal routine, the villagers including Baabara wished me ‘Happy Birthday’ all over again.
“Am I mistaken or is it your birthday today? I knew it!” 😛
Caroline is quick to discover the cafe after moving to town ^_^
Marshal… first you hide in the super obvious spot behind the windmill next to the plaza, then you hide behind your own house. You need some work at this…
Woah, a bad hair day for Baabara must be really bad. Like, baaaaaa~d xP
Mini-nook has the grace to laugh with me.
Oooh I finally got to catch one of these! They weren’t in Wild World but I think they fit perfectly into the Animal Crossing world full of wacky and interesting catchables.
The shark?? Woah what’s what? Tell me about it!
This is almost as good as the “Have you heard of the insect called a snail?” question xD
This is not how medicine works.
Mah two squirrel buddies xD
My citrus buddy 🙂
Always appreciated ^_^
My tree grew! 😮 Once again I walked back and forth in front of it a bit before realising it had grown. Seems to just be the way things are here xD
Enjoying my nice shady new tree~
Which was apparently like that for only 1 day, because on June 8th the vegetation officially fully recovered from the winter! It sure took a while 😮
Though I wouldn’t have minded keeping my springtime tree a little longer x3
Sooo that’s it with the marathon of another catchup! We’re finally up to the present!! (Sort of. For now.) I hope it wasn’t too much all over the place.
To finish off, I’ll leave you with this 🙂
