Growing Up Is Hard To Do

Aengoth has grown into an adult and unfortunately has not grown into his arms and legs. He still moves around quite efficiently without any trouble or anything which I am pleased with, but looks a little confusing. His arms and legs are reduced down to nubs, perhaps i'll just chock this one up to birth defects. Aengoth has been happily wandering around from the bridge to the garden and back, picking fruits and eating as he does. Occasionally he'll stop to hit a toy and the joy he finds in life is apparent in his bright, serene smile. 
Anging is also an unfortunate victim of "birth defect" because he has grown into youth I believe and still is very disjointed, even worse than Aengoth. Like Aengoth though, Anging wanders around quite happily. I don't think he nor any other norns even pay attention to his different looks. He's a member of the tribe and that's all that matters. Anging has more of a playful personality and likes to play with other norns more often.
Fabi has reached old age and his fins have come up with a whole new look. I quite like the new look, but was a little sad to see because I do like the old, plump looking fins better on him. This catfish didn't even notice when his age changed though, and it doesn't slow him down one bit! He seems very happy in spite of his new elder stage. This is the first time I've ever had or seen a mer norn of this type so this change is new to me and quite interesting! Fabi has been creating and tending his own tomato garden. So far it's pretty small, but he is determined that it's going to be a great garden on the right end of the bridge! I don't know why he prefers that area, perhaps it's warmer due to being so close to the volcano.
Shadow has also aged up and he looks quite handsome! Shadow mostly keeps to himself, not drawing much attention and lives up to his name a bit in doing so. Occasionally he will be the unfortunate victim of an elevator hijack but not so often, and he tends to retreat quickly. Shadow spends most of his time playing with the fun toys that lay around. He seems unsure about many things and I occasionally find him wandering around with a confused look on his face.
Shadow decided to do something he's never done before and take a long trip away from the main tribe of norns, across the bridge. For the long trip he took with him a single fruit he had picked before heading out. As I watched him he made it half way across the bridge then stopped for a rest while the waters of the swamp washed over his feet, making him a little bit wet. The humidity probably
isn't helping either. While he rested he turned to look at me with a happy smile, as if acknowledging my presence there. How cute!
Poor Wedge is another norn that has aged up into youth and not grown into his body (or is it head?). Again, he doesn't seem bothered by it. Wedge enjoys picking and eating the tomatos in the garden.
Fabi has a partner in his gardening dream with Corran. Corran and fabi happily tend their tomato garden together, occasionally picking a fruit from an adult plant, and then planting it (dropping it) so it will grow more. Fabi and Corran seem to have some type of bromance going on and rarely if ever leave eachother's side.
Shadow finally arrives from his long trip accross the bridge and happily helps himself to some refreshing tomatos without even asking Fabi and Corran... but they don't seem to mind and happily watch with smiles decorating their faces. They even seem to be proud to show off what they've accomplished so far with the tomatos! After a while Shadow even began to help plant his own.

Something new

I was looking at my pageview stats today for my second blog and realized that someone new has discovered it, and I think (feel free to correct me if i'm wrong) it was someone who was viewing this blog. I was delighted to discover this! I suddenly realized, however, that they might look at the lack of updates on this blog and think i'v completely scrapped it for the other. No worries though! I'm writing this to tell you i've not forgotten about this blog, i've just gotten slower to updating it because of my new, second blog!

Those of you who have not discovered it yet, if you like Oblivion, you'll love my other blog! Look in my links section. :)

Yay! Lets celebrate the continuation of Nyrn!

Well as my hard drive has failed and my old one survives I must admit I feel very lucky to still have my cute little norns with me. My current hard drive which, as I have mentioned, is my old one is not in super healthy shape either.... that's why it was replaced in the first place. However, one is better than none, so I am grateful and pray it continues to work. I still have the same norns backed up on a seperate hard drive, so if I do experience a second hard drive crash do not worry, all the norns are safe!

Aengoth has grown a stage of his life with the exception of his little arms and legs. These make him look a little dwarfish but he doesn't seem to care that it takes a little longer to walk around than the other norns. As Aengoth strolled lazily through the cool grass he watched in the distance as other norns played by the tree house, while he gradually made his way to them, his smile showing that his anticipation in joining in their play!

Little corran, too, aged a stage and donned his bright colors and pretty spots! The grey of his head and body show off the bright purple of his arms and legs nicely, though he doesn't blend in very well with the plants. Corran watched by the tree house as his buddy explored the lift, though nobody has yet learned how to use it to get IN to the tree house. Corran and his friends enjoy the plants and toys on the ground and don't express any interest in the tree house at all in fact. All of that play does wear little Corran out and as his ears droop sleepily, he squats down to take a temporary rest.
Corrans long time partner and buddy, Alfonso, has begun to get into the habbit of slapping. I'm not sure why, but Alfonso now thinks it is a load of fun to slap any norn that is near by, not all the time though. He is often quite a friendly norn, and enjoys sharing his toys with others. Just occasionally he will take to slapping Corran especially since he always stays close by. Corran, knowing Alfonso really loves him deep down, accepts the slapping and occasionally will return one or two of his own. Perhaps it is simply boyish rough housing. There haven't been any hurt feelings yet.

In a semi-deserted area of the swamp little Easter and Shadow find a brief moment alone to create a swampy green colored egg. The egg matched the environment well, and was incubated by the cool humidity of the air. Though it had been concieved on the bridge, Easter walked to the lift to lay, where it would be cushoned by the damp grass. From this egg hatched a little boy named Agning. Agning hatched looking much like his mother, but with some body parts floating. Above the egg is a tear drop shaped white puff which is his tail, which does not connect to his body. It's actually quite silly to see it floating around behind him when he crawls! Welcome to the world Agning!
I watched the norns peacefully go about their lives for quite some time when I was alerted to a death, and brought to the body of Easter. It is unknown exactly what killed her. Since she is so small I was unable to get the hoverdoc over her to find out. I have a suspicion that it was something bad she must have eaten though. She had such good habits and relationships with everyone else, it's the only thing I can think of! Rest in peace Easter dear. As long as we're mentioning illnesses, I believe Java has gotten into some deathcap a couple more times. I caught her very ill again, but she recovered and is still wandering the world with just as much enthusiasm.  however, upon having a checkup I noticed her Liver A organ has completely died off. As I said before, not quite sure what this organ is supposed to do.. but apparently she doesn't need it to live!
Fabi, the fabulous mer norn, has been spending a lot of time accross the bridge by himself, by the volcano door. Knowing there is no food over there for little norns, I took hold of his hand and lead him accross the bridge to the rest of the norns. He grabbed some fruit and attatched himself to the nearest norn. He seemed to favor Jago! Jago lead Fabi accross the bridge a little bit, not all the way, where Fabi took great joy in sticking extremely close to his side step by step! When Jago wasn't moving, Fabit was staring at him with a bright, happy grin, or at me with the same!
Fabi didn't eat the fruit (though he had eaten some earlier, no he's not starving :) ) but kept it with him at all times. I'm not quite sure why, it's puzzling. Jago had taken some fruit with himself as well, a little tomato, but eventually did end up eating it not long after this picture was snapped. Fabi's fruit was kept with him until eventually it would rot and disappear, but he enjoyed having it while it lasted!

Current norn population: 10

Good news and bad news..

Well there may not be new updates for a while.. I had my hard drive fail on me and die. I'm on an old hard drive I used years ago and did my best to backup and save the female norns on my hard drive though I don't know for sure if I was successful until I actually try them in the game. I don't know if I saved the norns that were donated to me, but if I didn't I can always go back to the thread and re-download them... all that'd be lost is the progress they've made so far, they'd have to do that over again. Crossing my fingers.

Good news, I was able to save everything and everyone! New post coming soon!
