Last weekend (not this current weekend, but the previous one) I WiFied for the first time in quite a while — I think my last one before had been with Jemma in July! It was nice to visit another town and to have guests again. 🙂 Taking pictures during WiFi meetings is a bit more difficult because things happen faster than during regular play, and I’m a bit rusty at taking quick, clear screenshots at just the right moment while still smoothly conversing and walking around during a WiFi meeting. I’m sorry about the not-so-great pictures. >_<
Also, I know I posted about New Years Eve in my last blog, but well, my town remained on New Years Eve for these WiFi meetings. Everything was in such a pristine, flawless state on December 31st, and it was hard to move past that date into the realm of wilted flowers to water, cracks in the ground to dig up, and weeds to pull, especially when I knew I was going to have visitors over. But I’ve started to catch up and my town is no longer on New Years Eve, it’s in mid-January now. Not very far, but making at least some progress feels good! I’ll post about my catch-up process another time. In the past, I would often put WiFi meetings and regular play in the same post, but now I think it’s better and more organized to separate them.
Anyway, let’s get on with it!
Heading off to visit a new WiFi friend, Marge in Hobbiton! I actually mentioned this town name in my “AC:NL musings and town name ideas” post as one of the location names I like from Lord of the Rings. 😛 As you probably know or guess, it’s where the hobbits from the story live. Like Animal Crossing towns, it’s a lazy, comfortable place with rivers, woods, and fields.
Seeing green grass and rain was a refreshing change for me. I look forward to the rainy season in my own town!
This was her first WiFi, I think, so I bought something from Nookway. It might’ve upgraded to Nookington’s by now! ^_^
Hobbiton’s town map:
I gave her two of my spare Gracie shirts, and here we are matching briefly! 😛 After this she changed into the butterfly shirt.
Meow-zah! 😆 I wonder what her neighbors’ impression of me was, like how they will describe me later (fish philosopher, flower girl, etc.). It’s determined by your outfit. Strawberry shirt + jacob’s ladder = ?
Marge’s main room is fully expanded and has a great backyard theme going. 😀
Daisy’s picture. I bet a lot of the normal types feel this way, and I can see why, among all the other loud personalities. o_o
The outside of Marge’s house and garden 🙂
Then we visited her favorite neighbor, Daisy. I’ve never had her before, she’s sweet!
I really like that she has a library sort of room. I’ve always wanted to have a library as well, but which one of my characters would it belong to? Harmony? I’ll probably ditch that formula I have (main room-candy, Twisk-garden, Bell-playful, Harmony-elegant, Melody-sporty) at some point so that I can try some new interior layouts.
Stopping to look at these palm trees after having a fun net fight / tag game. We couldn’t do that in my town, there are too many flowers…
There’s a koi, her favorite fish! I have never really thought about what my favorite Animal Crossing fish are.
Hobbiton’s fossil exhibit, nearing completion. 🙂
After exploring her town for a while, Marge came over to Dafdilly. Welcome!
Heading over to my place 🙂
Then coming outside for a bit to give her the four-leaf clover that was on my table, since she liked it (it appears as a book indoors). I’ve gotten several randomly and from de-weeding Red Bank and Dafdilly.
Santa’s house, I like that! 😛 Once I put a festive tree and toys underneath, so it probably gave more of that impression then.
It was smart of Teru to hold off on donating the mosquito until she finished her museum, the mosquito sure is annoying. >_<
It was nice to see my exhibits for once, which I hardly ever take the time to do. 🙂
After a trip to my Shampoodle and Ables’, Marge is looking a lot different.
I’m glad others like Melba, she’s my favorite! 😀 Because of not playing AC:WW for a while last year, having Melba in my town still feels somewhat new, I get happy every time I see her walking around town.
Kid Cat used to live here. 😥 I let him move away on accident recently, and not because I forgot to check. I said “Don’t go!” several times and I thought he said something that sounded regretful/unsure about leaving, so I assumed he was going to stay. I guess it wasn’t the right dialogue. I consider him (or Poncho, maybe) one of my “dream neighbors.” In general I’m not a fan of the jock personality, but a well-rounded town should have all the personalities, and I like Kid Cat because he’s a cute cat and I like cats, and because he’s got a helmet on which matches his personality perfectly (unlike Big Top, who is lazy and has a sports helmet). But after he moved out I DSed-to-DSed with another town right away, and it worked. He currently lives in a town I used for flower storage called Imladris, and I can move him back to Dafdilly sometime.
Giving Pelly and Phyllis some work to do, Marge was kind enough to mail my villages letters! 😀
After that, it was time for her to go. Goodbye ♥ Hope we can wiFi again sometime!
Later on I had another WiFi meeting, this time with Liam! Finally! 😛 I think it’s my fault for the wait, since my time playing City Folk was so short-lived and my Wii wasn’t connected to the internet.
Showing him where I hid the cicada in my courtyard garden 😛 I think it adds a nice nighttime feel along with the wallpaper. We also had a discussion about the Manekin Pis in this room; I asked if it was a real-life sculpture and he replied that it was, and I googled it later. I’m familiar with most of the paintings in Animal Crossing, but not with the sculptures, I admit. Here are some links if anyone’s interested:
The Little Mermaid
Bocca della Verità (Mouth of Truth)
I always love receiving statues from Gulliver! Some of his items I don’t know how to incorporate into a room very well, but statues are nice for both indoor and outdoor themed rooms. Getting multiple copies of the same statue isn’t bad either because there are some rooms where that could be fitting, like having symmetrical statues on different sides of a throne- or palace- style room.
We went down to see Whitney and her private beach next. This is my favorite house location in town! It was especially nice with the warm, welcoming light on in the evening and the peaceful 8 PM music playing.
Close enough 😛
Dafdilly’s Shampoodle is popular today! For a while there, it probably wasn’t getting any business.
Liam was brave by answering randomly to Harriet’s questions, and this is how it turned out! 😛
I think he likes Static! Static is one of my favorites as well (and a dream neighbor for Dafdilly), if only he picked a different house style. >_< I'll go into my house style frustrations and a new discovery I made about house styles/shapes in a different post…
The interior is nice, though! We had fun playing the guitars.
Melba’s, on the other hand… And her original layout is so nice, too! It influenced my own main room a lot. Neighbors seem to throw out their furniture over time, I’ll have to send her stuff.
Yay! 😀 This isn’t horrible when it comes to party popper pictures, which are difficult to time.
Lucky was my newest neighbor at the time of this meeting, so his interior decor here should be pretty close to how it is originally. The placement of the watering trough between two asteriods seems eerie to me, does anyone know what the significance of it might be?
Chatting with the snowmen.
A weird moment as we say practically the same thing at the same time 😛 My snowmen are always saying they want a family or snowladies, so that’s why I build them close to each other, but they never notice.
Yes, by far my favorite exhibit! Thanks to some help from Teru, it’s complete! I have seen this painting in person. 😀
I look forward to catching these summer bugs and fish again in AC:WW and AC:NL! Haha, it seems like with everything I see, I think “I can’t wait to do that in New Leaf!” 😛
It was nice to find out someone else always thinks of pokeballs when they see this floor! 😛 It’s a neat curved layout of bricks, though, it would be interesting to try making a pattern for outdoor paths like that. Soon after this Liam had to go to bed, it was getting very late for him. I had a great time for our first WiFi meeting, and I look forward to more in AC:WW, AC:CF, AC:NL, whatever! 😀
My last WiFi meeting on this “day” of December 31st was with RedTux TK, who has been recording tours of Wild World towns with his capture card! It’s really nice of him to do since his videos are such great quality, and it’s always fun for me to see different towns, rooms, and landscaping.
It was interesting to hear a complete outsider’s perspective of my town; he seemed confused/less enthused by some things that I like and that make perfect sense to me, like my character/town name and the dresses at my Ables’. But he was very complementary, I appreciate it! 🙂 I laughed when I saw his reaction to the sold out signs upstairs; Liam bought those, and one of them was a cabin couch, which he would have wanted. 😆 But I gave him all the cabin stuff in my catalog after the tour, including the cabin couch, so it’s all good. Thanks a lot to him for coming over to my town and doing this tour! It was cool seeing a video of my town in such great quality!
