Since Fabi's last attempts at becomming a father were thwarted by another norn I decided to give him another chance. I plopped he and Jeanette in the tree house where they could be alone with the beautiful view of the waterfall out the window. I figured this was a perfect romantic setting for their potential kisspop. I played a little romantic music on the harp and soon there was a new pregnancy!
Since they had not gotten up in to the treehouse by themselves I thought it only fair that I also help them down. I carefully placed Fabi and the new mother to be on the ground beneath the treehouse. There Fabi watched as Jeanette grew and in a short amount of time layed a beautifully sky blue colored egg.
Jeanette and Fabi were paired together by me, sort of like a blind date, and so I didn't expect their romance to last past the kisspop or egg laying stage before one would wander off to do other things. To my pleasant surprise Jeanette and fabi stayed together as if they had fallen in love, and they also stayed close to the egg while it grew and the baby inside developed. Fabi watched the egg protectively. From the egg, however, hatched the most adorable little girl I have ever seen. You will see a picture of her soon. I was disappointed that it was a girl and not a boy. I did install that new script to make more boys but I can't tell yet that it is working...
After the birth of his newest daughter she wandered off to learn new things about the world and Fabi was left on his own. He sat by the cliff facing the waterfall and contemplated his life for a while. Had he accomplished everything he set out to? Time was growing short for him. He looked happy with his thoughts.
Meanwhile the fallow brothers decided the coolest place to hang out was by the volcano. There many beetles that I had placed beneath the treehouse were multiplying with little to now interference. They provide some valuable nutrients and so the brothers were thriving quite well on eating only them. It's funny to see a "deer" norn which should only be living off of fruits and vegetables actually chowing down carnivorously. I haven't quite figured out what they like doing all by themselves here the whole time but they look happy.
Checking back on Fabi he was spending some quality time with his new daughter. I anticipate the day I get to see what she looks like with a new mermaid tail when she grows up. Fabi carefully watched over his daughter while she played with the many toys around and generally had a good time.
I began to notice something strange that I wasn't used to seeing, lots of tiny wriggling things moving all over the ground. Then I realized, as I also discovered, that Agning was walking around picking up and eating every one that he could find! I looked up at my C2 bar and it was spring! Spring has finally sprung! Wait a minute.. these are caterpillars and Agning was eating them all! If this keeps up there won't be any butterflies during summer to lay more eggs for next year! I did my best to quickly pull Agning away from the caterpillars and stop them from all going extinct thanks to him. Every which way I pulled Agning there was another caterpillar there.. *slurp* or not. "no! No! Agning!" In the end there was one last caterpillar left right beside the swamp bridge and it was a race between my screen and Agning to see who would get to it first! Luckily I did and successfully pulled Agning all the way to the other side of the forest where he wouldn't be distracted by it and the caterpillar could grow up in peace. I'll do my best to protect it all spring.. but I just can't be in two places at once... we'll see!
Fabi had decided to take a travel accross the bridge and visit the fallow brothers. He was also occasionally eating up a beetle or two so I didn't have to worry about him starving. Nikorasu decided to become scared of the volcano door. That door has scared more norns in it's existance than I have I think!
The fallow brothers and Fabi all devised a plan to combat boredom and take an adventure where no norn has gone before! They took the nearest lift to the top of the treehouse above the swamp! Fabi marveled at the craftmanship while I wondered if it was ettins who were supposed to have built this and lived here.
Just off to the left of my screen I noticed a bug crawling around... "what.. there aren't supposed to be any bugs there..." I scrolled my camera and gasped in surprised when I found not only a billion bettles but also the missing doggy toy! How'd that all get up there! A norn must have snuck up there somehow and placed them there.. but I don't remember ever seeing a norn stray from my sights..I scratched my head in bewilderment and tried to trace backwards the path that lead to that room, that a stray norn might have taken. The vehicle lead to a comms type room that was a dead end.. but then I noticed the teleporter so I searched for where it might have lead to..
Maybe I didn't search hard enough but the only other teleporter I could find was this one in the norn nursery cave. (Ok.. so I have my own name for everything.) And there were beetles here too! What the heck.. they're everywhere, like cockroaches! I panicked for a split moment as my plan to be organized with the placement of everything in my Nyrn world was destroyed.. but then, I calmed myself down and decided the beetles don't do any harm... so it's okay if they're other places..
After my brief bout of panic I calmed down and decided to check up on Fabi again. He was on the swamp bridge loving the moisture and wetness while playing with a ball. It was so adorable, he looked just like a kid again! Or a kitten rather, and just as happy being alone! All through Fabi's life he clung needfully to other norns and was never straying from any norns side, almost as if he had security issues. These days, i'm very happy to see him secure and happy all by himself.
I found the oldest fallow brother back by the ettin egg layer (by the volcano door) but one was missing.. where was the other one? I found Nikorasu in the scaffolding above the swamp apparently lost. He would walk left, then stop as if confused and continue right again, back and forth. Occasionally he would stop and look around. I felt sorry for him. I hope you find your way down eventually, we don't want you starving to death and there are no beetles up there.
Current norn population: 8
