Animal Crossing New Leaf US: Do you live around here?

Just when I think nothing new happens in my game, something new happens to prove me wrong. As I was wandering around yesterday I noticed the area just north of my fountain had…changed a bit. The four bushes and one tree had been flattened and replaced with…a house plot—and an unauthorized house plot at that.

What is that thing behind me??

I strolled over to see who had invaded Hanabi.

It could be worse. It could be better (Wherefore art thou Marshal??). Aurora is moving in. She’s a normal penguin. I think she’s pretty normal in every sense. She’s very nondescript. Kind of plain if you ask me.

At least she picked pretty much the perfect spot to put her house down. I can’t be mad at her for that.

I couldn’t wait until today to barge into her house and question her about where she came from. I know where I got her. Monday night I went to J-town in San Francisco and went to Kinokuniya to get my Japanese magazine fix since I read all mine on the boat. She’s definitely from streetpassing someone there.

Well, I can report to the mayor of Corvere that their Aurora was not voided. She'll live on in Hanabi until I get her picture, then out!

To add insult to injury (of course) I had a camper today as well. I thought surely this time it must be Marshal. Just to break my heart. Fortunately it was only Robin. I’ve gotta get someone out soon so I have a free spot again.

Full. Move along.

It all ends too soon!!!! *cries*

Oooooh me too! Me too! I just have this cute dress. I need a parasol!

And that’s all the new I can handle for the moment.

P.S. I received a US copy of Animal Crossing New Leaf from Nintendo. Thanks, Nintendo!

If you follow me on twitter, then you know the big news for Hanabi. Flurry moved in. She’s unpacking as I type and should be all settled tomorrow.

I didn’t quite luck into her. She’s been on my alt game (Quantico) for ages—mayor Hotch has three of her pictures—and she finally asked to move. Since I had an opening in both Kasen and Hanabi I agreed wholeheartedly to the move. Then hemmed and hawed trying to decide which town to move her in to. In the end I chose Hanabi because I could pick her spot. There aren’t many places left to build a house in Hanabi. Two of the prime spaces were vacated by Kitt and Rooney, but no one wants to put a house there. I reset and reset and reset, but Flurry insisted on being behind my house, next to my house, in the middle of a path, or in the southern cherry orchard. So, I let her stay as my next-door neighbor. I guess we can rule my fiefdom together.

Initially Vella wasn’t too pleased with Flurry’s placement, but she’ll get used to it.

Step one of budding friendship: send Flurry a better shirt.

In Other News

I suppose I shouldn’t lead with the most exciting news first because then I have nothing to talk about…I don’t have anything else as exciting as Flurry moving in to share, that’s true, but it’s been an eventful few days in town.

I’ve had a few campers. One on the day I decided to get Flurry (apparently my “come on Marshal” chant is broken). Katt. Oh, scary scary Katt. No. Pass.

And then, after Flurry had set up her spot I had another camper and almost broke into a sweat before going in the igloo—I could get Flurry whenever, but a really good camper, I can’t replace. I needn’t have worried.

So relieved you're not Marshal.

And I got another townie’s picture. I finally stuffed Octavian full of enough perfect fruit that he gave me his picture. I seem to always need three pictures: Tia, Pashmina, and Flurry though technically I can steal one of Hotch’s and just ignore her requests, but we both know I couldn’t do that.

I haven’t gotten any new badges. I haven’t even really made much progress except for sending 4 letters a day.

Overheard: Julian has his sports a bit confused…

Like we’re surprised about that one. He’s a cheerleader at heart.

I guess stealing Julian's catchphrase is better than Octavian's.

I also made a new dress, the QR code of which will be posted tomorrow:
