Update 2: Just today I bough a beautiful black and red 3DS XL and the Animal Crossing New Leaf game, eep!! I’ll let you know how it all went tomorrow!!
The day has come, where after 7 years (half my life) my first ever Nintendo has broken, and as I am someone who tends to get a little (more like a lot) emotionally attached to things, this was quite sad news. So before I actually move on to the good news, I just wanted to say goodbye to a little machine that brought a hole lot of happiness to a little girl.
So long, DS Lite, you will be missed.
And so we move on to the good news, I will be getting a 3DS! Yaaay, after so much time of being unsure, the fact that I would no longer be able to even play any games of the ones I own (including Animal Crossing) unless I bought one, just made my decision very simple!
Which obviously means Animal Crossing New Leaf! Eeeep! I am truly happy, and once I am able to fully get out of bed (I’m sick) I will rush over with my parents to pick up both things.
But my sick mind has been tumbling over a question, what should I name my town? After a clear fail of naming my original Wild World town when I was 7 years old, usa. I decided I need a little bit of help, would you guys do that for me? So at the end of this post, you’ll have a poll to be able to vote for your favorite names, and even include a name of your own if you’d like 🙂 Here are the options I came up with…
Update: I changed a couple of the names due to the limit of space being 8 characters for a town name, thank you Amy for telling me! 🙂
Lilycott: A combination of two words referencing to one of my favorite book (and movie) series, Harry Potter. Lily Evans, Harry Potter’s mother, and this quote explains why I really liked her: “Your mother was there for me at a time when no one else was. Not only was she a singularly gifted witch, she was also an uncommonly kind woman. She had a way of seeing the beauty in others even, and perhaps most especially, when that person couldn’t see it in themselves.“—Remus Lupin. And lastly, Shell, which refers to Shell Cottage, the place where Bill and Fleur lived, and most importantly, where Dobby was buried after his tragic death (why, Rowling, why??).
Soirose: Pink evening in french, one of my favorite times of the day, when the sky turns pink as the sun goes down, and I just though it sounded rather nice 😀
Mintapple: One of my favorite nailpolish colors is Mint Candy Apple by Essie, and while I was thinking of names I spotted this nailpolish and though that Mintapple was a pretty name, mint being a beautiful mix between: green, a calm color; and blue, the color of the sea. And apple, which can also mean city, just like we mean when we say “The big apple”, referring to New York. Mintapple is out!!
So? Which name do you like the most? If you think my creativity is just awful and you’d prefer to make a name up yourself, you can also do that (no harsh feelings, haha)!
I really have absolutely no idea what to look for in my town layout, I guess I’d like an island and a pond next to my house, curvy river and I have no real preference over train station/town hall colors. Aaaand… speaking about layouts, like my blog’s new look? I really hope you do!
Well, I suppose that’s it, thank you for reading and I’ll see you later, alligators!
PS: Oh, wait one more thing! I am aware that the name of my blog is indeed acwwbook, however the fact of including AC:NL posts kind of contradicts its name, but I prefer to keep it as it is, since it’s not only a name anymore, it holds a lot of treasured memories inside 🙂
