It’s been a while since I blogged about Hanabi. Ok, let’s face it, it’s been a long while. I’m still faithfully governing my beloved town through its good times—Felicity finally moved—and its bad—and immediately following we got a big bear…
Mayor Vicky from Rainbow came to pick up Felicity after she packed up. I was a little sad to see Felicity go, because I like her and it’s always sad to see townies leave, but she was off to spread the good word about Hanabi far and wide, so I tried not to tear up too much.
Little did I know, mayor Vicky had dropped off her own present when she picked up Felicity. A grizzly one. A grizzly bear to be precise.
I was initially quite distraught that he had the nerve to move in almost exactly on top of Felicity’s not-yet-cold vacant spot. The nerve! I don’t get along too well with the big bears. Charlise ruined them for me. I still get slightly ill when I see her on main street in town.
It took me over two weeks before I would recognize him as a townie and put a path to his house.
Time to Cool Off
While I was busy ignoring Grizzly, life continued lazily around town. I got a delivery from Nintendo containing a smoker. As a peace offering I gave it to Grizzly, but I was still sad he had taken my tenth spot. I could have had Genji!
I got some crazy petitions signed and found out that Gayle should hang out with Tia as they have similar poetic interests.
I stopped by Kasen for Starcrossed Day and the Summer Solstice.
I didn’t get any campers that I couldn’t live without. Thank gawd because the town was full thanks to Grizzly.
Gradually Grizzly and I bonded over chats about Mac ‘n’ Cheese and his brown nosing about my “Keep Hanabi Beautiful” ordinance.
I did have to concede, once I finally set foot in it, that Grizzly’s house is pretty cool.
Noooo! Nooooooooo! Pashmiiiiiiiiiinaaaaaaaaaaa!!!
Then tragedy struck. Isabelle announced that one of our residents was leaving—and it wasn’t Grizzly. Pashmina tried to slip away without even saying goodbye or asking my permission. I’ll admit that I hadn’t seen her much lately because I didn’t want to reset the time on my 3DS because it screws Tomodachi Life up and I had changed it to a few hours earlier so she was never awake when I played. But why Pashmina?! Whhhhhyyyyyy!!!?? I needed you to recommend the scarecrow! And I gave you expensive furniture! I couldn’t just let her run off into the cold uncaring world, so I had Kokuto whisk her off to Jisuna village to live.
So, now I have my free spot in Hanabi again. Just not how I would have liked. Grizzly and I are getting along better I think…
And that’s what’s been going on in Hanabi while I’ve been so quiet.
