Yay another update!(Sorry it's a little wordy in some places)
At the McGrath mandatory 8 hour stop
FrostSong: *whispers* Hey Nightfall are you still awake? Nightfall: *whispers back* yes FrostSong: Can we talk? Nightfall: Right now? FrostSong: Well not right right now but... can we get up and then go talk somewhere away from the team? Nightfall: I guess... but only for a minute, we're supposed to be resting.
Nightfall: I'm sorry for the other day, that was insensitive of me. FrostSong: No, it's fine. Nightfall: No it's not, I knew you were taken and shouldn't have said anything. Does ShadowHawk know? FrostSong: He knows Nighfall: Is he mad? FrostSong: Funny you should ask...
FrostSong: He actually encouraged me to accept your offer, he thinks that I should try other options before settling with him. Nightfall: Well I'm glad he's not mad. FrostSong: Well do you still want to go on that date after we get back from the race?
Nightfall: No, it wouldn't be right. FrostSong: What do you mean? Isn't this what you want? Nightfall: No it's not what I want. I want you to accept because you like me, not to make ShadowHawk feel better about being your only relationship. FrostSong: ...okay. Nightfall: Come on, let's walk back to camp.
--- A few hours later ---
ShadowHawk: *sighs* I wonder if FrostSong has talked to Nightfall yet Tchaikovsky: *sneaks up and pounces* ShadowHawk!!! ShadowHawk: *turns towards noise* oof
ShadowHawk: Tchaikovsky get off me! Tchaikovsky: Not until you smile ShadowHawk: *Forces a smile* Happy now? Tchaikovsky: Not really *gets off him*
Tchaikovsky: So what's up? ShadowHawk: The sky, clouds, frozen water vapor... didn't you pay attention in science class? Tchaikovsky: Not really, and you know that isn't what I meant. ShadowHawk: *sighs* It's FrostSong, Nightfall asked her out before we left and I encouraged her to accept. Tchaikovsky: Why? She's crazy about you, aren't you crazy about her too, or has that changed? ShadowHawk: I don't know, it's like ever since all this race stuff came up she changed. Tchaikovsky: How so? ShadowHawk: She's become more confident and outgoing and I don't know, she just seems different not to mention restless. Tchaikovsky: And you don't like this new side of her that you're seeing? ShadowHawk: It's not that I don't like it... I just don't know how to be with her when she's like this, I mean I'm used to us just curling up and watching the stars at night not playing chase and exploring new places. Tchaikovsky: I see, have you talked to her? ShadowHawk: Of course not! What would I say, hey I don't like how restless you are and want you to be like you were a few months ago? Tchaikovsky: No... but... ShadowHawk: Tchaikovsky, I appreciate that you're trying to be helpful, but you aren't helping. Can't you just be my normal goofy friend? Tchaikovsky: *sighs* I guess, I just hate seeing you like this.
---The next morning---
Nightfall: ShadowHawk, can I talk to you? ShadowHawk: Sure
Nightfall: I'm sorry about asking FrostSong out, I was out of line. ShadowHawk: It's okay Nightfall: No it's not, you even told her she could go for it...
ShadowHawk: I didn't do it for you. Don't thank me or apologize to me, just take the gift. Nightfall: She isn't a gift, besides I turned her down. ShadowHawk: ...I think you should rethink turning her down... Nightfall: Why? ShadowHawk: Just rethink it okay? Nightfall: Okay, I guess... ShadowHawk: *walks away* Nightfall: *sighs* Look at this mess I've made. And why was he so insistent that I rethink turning her down on her offer to go on a date with me? Penny: *yells from afar* Alright team, let's go!
---- Again sorry for the text heavy update, and let me know if you're interested in maybe adopting or meeting Dan.
Sorry it took so long to get another update out, the holidays are always a little hectic and the wifi at my grandparents is extremely temperamental. Thanks for all the nice comments, it really encourages me to keep going.
-Just before the White Mountain check point-
Nightfall: *pants* hey Frostsong, can we talk at the next rest stop? Frostsong: *pants* If I make it that far Nightfall: Don't worry we're almost there Frostsong: Good because I don't think some of us can go much farther. Nightfall: I know what you mean
-Later at White Mountain-
Frostsong: So what did you want to talk about? Nightfall: Well... I know you aren't going to like this and probably are going to say no but... will you go on a date with me after the race?
Frostsong: Are you KIDDING me?! After all this trouble you've caused, do you really think I'd even consider going on a date with you? Nightfall: No, I'm s... Frostsong: Hush! I wasn't finished yet! You must be bone headed buffoon to think that I'll go out with you after getting turned down by you when I was trying to be nice and make up for my original rejection. Nightfall: I know and I'm s... Frostsong: Stop interrupting me! You've ruined my relationship with ShadowHawk and have no regard for other people's feelings. Give me one good reason why I should go on a date with you. Nightfall: ... because you want to go on a date with me...
Nightfall: Nevermind, that was stupid. I'm sorry Frostsong. I know I don't deserve another second of your time. Frostsong: I wouldn't say you don't deserve another second of my time... Nightfall: What was I thinking asking you out when I know that someone as beautiful, smart, and kind as you are, especially when she was in a happy relationship. Frostsong:... do you really think I'm beautiful? Nightfall: Even the northern lights can't compare to you Frostsong: ...I guess one date won't hurt... Nightfall: *Perks up* Really? Frostsong: *Smiles* Really. Nightfall: I know this might be asking a lot, but can we try something? Frostsong: I guess...
Nightfall: *Nuzzles her* Frostsong: *Nuzzles him back* Nightfall: This isn't so bad, right? Frostsong: No, it really isn't bad at all...
Frostsong: *Clears her throat and jumps away* Anyway we have a race to run before we can do anything, so let's get to it! Nightfall: *Smiles* Alright, Frostsong, let's go.
Nightfall and Frostsong walk back to camp and curl up to sleep with the rest of the team.
Gerard: *Yawns loudly* HoneyBear: Gerard stop yawning and come sleep. ShadowHawk: I hope Tchaikovsky is okay... I wonder if Nightfall asked her yet, did I do the right thing telling them to try? Ugg at this rate I'm never going to get any sleep.
I don't know why some of the pictures turned out to be so large, sorry about that. I'm hoping to get my next update out for New Years eve... tomorrow night. We'll see if I can manage to finish it in time and have wifi to be able to post it. Happy Holidays everyone!
Okay this is going to be a really long update, sorry. I was originally going to make this two separate updates, but didn't have time to post when I wanted to so... for my convenience I'm going to post them both together. I'll try not to post something this long again in the future and I'll try to not let it get too wordy. Also I've decided to downsize my Petz 4 family a little (adopt page) Once I get back to my dorm after winter break is over, and I'm not traveling so much, I'm planning on moving to Petz 5 and converting all my pets over. If it goes well I'll host a small party in honor of finally joining the modern world and coming back, and staying with, Duke's group. I'll let you know if the upgrade to Petz 5 goes well, and if it does feel free to send your pets to the party. I'll post another update, if everything goes well, with my email and more solid details. I don't know how active I'll be once the spring semester starts, however I'll try to stay active as best I can. Now onto the update!
--New Years Eve--
After finally getting back from the race, Nightfall had me give him a bath and help him prepare for his date with Frostsong...
Then, while he went to set up the date, Frostsong requested my help... Frostsong: Mom, I'm not sure I like this bow. Doesn't it look a little childish? Penny: *Sigh* What about this one? Frostsong: Hmmm... I like it! Penny: Good, now stop making Nightfall wait and go meet him for the date. Frostsong: Umm... did he tell you where the date was going to be? Penny: I think he said something about dinner in the attic... Frostsong: *scrunches her nose in disgust* the attic? Penny: Just go, I'm sure it'll be fun.
Nightfall: Where is she? She was supposed to be here two hours ago...
*Frostsong enters* Nightfall: Wow! you look great! Frostsong: *Blushes* Thanks Nightfall: Shall we? Penny helped me make something special for dinner... Frostsong: You can cook? Nightfall: Kinda...
Frostsong: This looks delicious! Nightfall: It's nothing special... Frostsong: Sure it is, I can't cook to save my life. In fact Penny banned me from the kitchen after my last attempt... Nightfall: What'd you do? Frostsong: Oh, nothing... anyway let's eat!
Nightfall: You finished that really quickly Frostsong: *Blushes* well, it was good and i haven't had hot chocolate in forever... Nightfall: *Chuckles* I'm glad you liked it.
Nightfall: You know, you have really pretty eyes Frostsong: So do you...Ummm... Handsome, I meant handsome eyes. Nightfall: Thanks
Nightfall: So did you pick that bow just for me? Frostsong: Of course not! I just wanted to change things up a bit after having to wear the same thing everyday during the race... Nightfall: Well, it looks great on you Frostsong: You really think so? It isn't too... dark? Nightfall: No, it really brings out your eyes.
Frostsong: Who would've thought that the attic could be so romantic, you did a great job decorating it Nightfall: I didn't do much, just moved the boxes to the side and brought up some candles and pillows... and the music box from the living room... Frostsong: You brought up the music box? Can we dance? Nightfall: Of course *winds up the music box and opens it* Frostsong: I've always loved this song. Nightfall: So have I.
Nightfall: *Whispers* Wanna know something else that I love? Frostsong: *Whispers back* What? Nightfall: *Whispers in her ear* You Frostsong: *Blushes*
--Later that night... before midnight--
Some of the boys went to the local club to celebrate getting back from the race and New Year's Eve.
ShadowHawk: I wonder what Frostsong is doing tonight, maybe she's on that date with Nightfall Gerard: I shouldn't be here, HoneyBear is going to kill me when I get home and she finds out that I went clubbing instead of spending quality time with her. Melvin: This place is soo COOL! Tchaikovsky: This is a really good song...
A little later they met some girls on the dance floor and Gerard left early to spend time with HoneyBear
--Midnight-- Tchaikovsky: Happy New Year, Sweetie Mystery Girl: Happy New Year, Tchaikovsky Tchaikovsky: *Kisses her* Mystery Girl: Will I see you again? Tchaikovsky: You can count on it
Sorry my posts are always so long, this one especially. I'll try to make the next one WAY shorter.
Thor: That's super fine Max I do the same thing when I take a break from something and come back.

griffy: anyone know where I can get IBM via voice that works with petz 4 lol
Sept 15, 2019 5:59:25 GMT -5
Thor: I found MILK to be a helpful resource for this-- its the Babyz Community and they have all sorts of tutorials on downloading Viavoice. Sadly, you need to be a member to join. Maybe I could write a tutorial for here, DG since its part of playing
Sept 15, 2019 13:39:17 GMT -5
griffy: Thanks but actually not sure if that link works for me ;P And Thor I may check take a look at their stuff, I think I did make an account on their community a very long while back. A tutorial would be cool though, I haven't seen one before
Sept 17, 2019 3:11:25 GMT -5
Thor: That link doesn't work anymore... we'll have to get a new way to download the driver now...
