Well, I’ve passed mid-November in my catch-up process, so I thought I’d continue my tradition lately of posting half of a month’s worth of daily happenings in Citàlune (along with recent WiFis).
On November 1st in my town, Phoebe was all packed up and ready to move out of Citàlune: 😦
I’ll miss her, but this time I might get to visit her since she’s not going to a random stranger on AC:NL Adopt…
Instead, she’ll be moving to Teru’s town! I’m sure she’ll have a great new life there! ^_^
Teru gave me a sagittarius arrow and a holiday stocking, which I really appreciated and have already put to use in my characters’ houses — thanks so much for those! 😀
I also went to visit Kiki’s town of Meadow recently:
Kiki’s town was decorated in a Legend of Zelda theme! Sometimes I feel a little uninformed when I hear about towns named after or inspired by locations in Zelda, since I’ve never really played those games, so I don’t know the reference. 😳 But what I do know is that this looks like a very well-done theme! 🙂
We also toured all her characters’ houses, and I thought this room of polka-dot furniture dedicated to Chrissy and Francine was a really cool idea! 😮 Thanks for having me over, Kiki, and for letting me take some mushrooms home!
I went to Shantaki recently to give Ryann some purple pansies, and ended up getting a lot more than I expected in return: Gracie-themed furniture, hybrid lilies, and an assortment of other goodies from a pile she had laid out! Thank you so much Ryann! 😀
It was a beautiful snowy night in Shantaki:
So gorgeous to see the falling snow!! ❤ Can't wait until I reach snow in my town! 😀
Hehe, hey Ryann! Dressed as a pikmin, right? 😛 (Another game I haven’t played >_>)
Afterwards Ryann came over to my town, along with someone I hadn’t seen in a while: Cassidy from Miagen! It was so good to see and talk to you again, Cassidy! ^_^
I didn’t take many good pictures, but we chatted, and I showed them around town and through the houses and that sort of thing! Neither of them had been to Citàlune for a while and they had lots of kind things to say about my town’s progress, thanks so much guys! 😀
Now for just some regular ol’ (non-WiFi) daily happenings:
The trees around town turned from gold to orange. My town tree is still gold, but it’s
dying losing its leaves for winter. 😦
But it’s not all bad; there are some parts of town that stand out more with the orange trees, like this Autumn-themed spot.
The orange trees help bring out the warm-colored lilies by the town hall as well! ^_^
To replace Phoebe moving out, I invited Alice (a normal koala, like Melba) to move in:
My headcanon is that she’s Melba’s little sister. :3 I guess I get the impression she’s younger because of her pink hair-clips.
Another reason why I wanted Alice to move in is her house style, which fits with the consistent house style theme I’d like to have in Citàlune (bright colors+fairytale doors):
I think her house looks nice where it is behind Paula’s house; they have similar color schemes. 🙂
Speaking of the koala sisters…
Melba gave me her picture! Hehe, it feels great having it in both New Leaf and Wild World now!
Her picture phrase is different than it was in Wild World’s, though, which was “You’re my new best bud!” The new one is more philosophical.
This was a pretty clever hiding spot of Rod’s during hide-and-seek, haha, he blends in with the purple-ish flowers!
I’m getting so close to finishing my fossil exhibit, and I very rarely ever get to donate a new fossil piece, so it’s always exciting when I do now!
These two blank ones are the only fossils I have left to donate; I don’t know what they are though.
My town is perfect again! ^_^ I lost PTS for a while due to dropping stuff on the ground, like candy and Halloween stuff. I like this rating from Pavé, haha, it makes me feel like my town is a luxurious paradise or something! And it’s fun seeing “Viva Citàlune!” in big letters! 😛
The town tree changed to brown, and the orange trees around town changed to an orange-red color.
Gulliver’s latest destination was Ireland, and I thought of my WiFi buddy Serena. 😛
I really like both the marble-customized bathtub and the whirlpool bath, but I don’t think I can fit both in here…unless I expand the room one last time? Not sure if I should, though ❓
Oh, and if you’re reading this Ryann: Henry gave me a toilet just a few days after I asked you to order me a toilet, I’m sorry! >_< I can still pay you back for ordering me one, though! 🙂
Another room I’ve worked on expanding and changing is the left wing, which is now a dining hall! It’s not done yet, though, because I want more items for it. Some I might be able to get on my own at some point (like the birthday cake and chocolate cake), and others I might have to do some trading on forums in order to get them (like region-exclusives).
The rococo library that used to be in the left wing is now in the new basement. 🙂
This was weird: lots of stuff “sold out” before I’d even entered the store, and card-themed items available. Not sure if they’re seasonal, or for a special sale, or what.
Rod thought about moving, but I shut that down quick since he’s a dream neighbor.
And Colton also thought about moving! D: I hope I convinced him, I guess we’ll see when I reach November 20th in my town.
Unfortunately, catching up to the present is going kind of slow because I want to be extra careful that certain neighbors don’t move out, and there are other little routines that I want to do every day, like check the shops. I was hoping to be caught up to the present by Toy Day and New Years’, but that might not happen… but I know it’ll happen eventually! I hope everyone enjoys the holidays in real life and in AC! 😀 I’ll be out of town for a few days, so that’s why I might not be online or respond to things for a bit.
