The Gull Invasion: Critter Beach Adventure

The gulls appeared out of nowhere. Their chattering was shrieks, their laughter even more so. They invaded the beach and for a moment the critters were worried. Then they began teaching the squirrels how to fly and everyone calmed down. Surely this was normal, after all.

gullinvasion9bsThey brought puppies with them, for some reason. Or maybe the pups followed the gulls. Regardless, The Bunling Who Knows Letters wiggled into the Diplomacy Shoes of the Big Bunny to greet them. Since the bunny who wore shoes was in charge, greeting newcomers from them was only appropriate.
gullinvasion1bsAddler and Petal were too worried for their solemn duty to guard the pina coladas to leave them, but at the point when the flock of fluffs on two feet approached the dropped ice cream, Addler simply had to flail his short paws in shocked protest: he had been eyeing the ice cream for at least a century now! Claimed by gaze, it was!

The gulls located shade and found perfect perch in fast order. In short, they were making themselves home. The diplomatic bunling tried to enquire if they were planning to stay very long and to warn them of possible dangers of barbeque-kind nature, but the puppy just licked her face instead of listening.
gullinvasion4bsGradually the concern shifted to a calm, sunny beach day mood. Addler managed to point out that puppies seemed to be always welcome and perhaps the gulls could fly to escape possible barbeque if needed. Surely the invasion was not the critters fault, so all was safe and good!

The relaxed mood spread throughout the critter crowd, except for Grumpy the Kiwi, who atop the sleeping pup kept pondering the secrets of flight. His small flock had followed the gulls for a while and had just seen them teaching the squirrels how to fly. If they could teach the squirrels, surely even kiwis could one day fly! 

All the gulls by Ohmai are available in Summerfest, the puppies by MishMish can be purchased in Uber and the shoes by lassitude & ennui are a part of Mix, a new main store event. The rest are a mix of older items, although the kiwis by Schadenfreude were just in this June’s Arcade.

The Glyph of the Bun

“I greet you, bunlings, and wish you warm eve. What has brought you out of the forest in such numbers, what might be so important that you ventured forth all the way to the Pool Between Worlds?”

“We want to write things!”
“Yey things!”
“Many yey things!”
“To make surprises!”
“We can’t be cheerful in human sounds, strange loud human sounds.”
“But we want to yey. Happy yeys!”
“To be helpful.”
“And then we hop out of the surprise box and waaaaave flags. Yey-flags!”

bunglyphs4bs
“That is certainly a noble goal and nice of you, brave bunlings. To mark down human sounds you need some ink and paper, like so… and a brush to hold with paws, possibly mouth, maybe if you tilt your head… yes. I must say that is a remarkably well done pictogram, very clear in meaning, but perhaps also these signs… they are called letters. Add them for emphasis, hm?”

bunglyphs2ds
“‘s a bun glyph! It says ‘yey!'”
“Letters just dull lines. Bun glyph better.”
“Are you sure the dull lines say yey too?”
“They don’t look very yeysome.”
“Are you really really suuuure? Ohalright.”
“Now we’ll form a pyramid and then hop out and wave all the yeys!”

bunglyphs4ds
“Perfect. I’m sure your bravery and dedication will be noted and appreciated. Now hop back to the forest to practice, I think the pyramid could use some more work. Perhaps practice on a cushion, come to think of it. It’ll become the best of surprises.”

This just happened. Don’t ask me how. These things do that. Happen.

The headdress by !dM deviousMind (watch me go back and play until I have them all) and the Japanese Atelier decor by Anc Ltd. are from the current Fantasy Gacha Carnival. The throne by 8f8 and the first pose by Kirin are available in Collabor88.

Splashing in the Sun

“Yes, you may play with pandas, just watch out that you don’t fall… ah. Well, swimming is good in the heat, splash some extra while you’re there, I’ll pick you up in just a moment. Yes, Adler, I know your paws can’t reach the drink, just take it as a tummy cooler for now. Now someone help me liberate this poor seal pup of this outfit, surely he can’t be comfortable in this…”

critterpicnic5bs“Everyone safely out from the water and drying in the sun? Good good. What’s this… ah, sun screen spreading service hedgie, most kind of you. Mr. Squirrel, you dropped an ice cream on Adler’s head? I’m sure he’ll find it refreshing, not to worry.”

critterpicnic4bs“Yes, I do agree that my shoes make perfect perches, well spotted. …sure, you may use that as a floating device, little hedgie, or possibly a hat for two. Picnic ready and mostly not nibbled? Excellent.”

critterpicnic1bs“No, I don’t need the hat right now, feel free to play with it, I have tweeties to carry anyway. Remember to build a big guest room to the sand castle, I have a feeling we’re going to need it. Oh, and someone water the flower vases. Not you, Adler, you can’t reach.”

critterpicnic2bs“Everyone alive, relaxed and counted for? No pair of paws lost or splashing too far? Good. Countdown to otter relaxation in three… two…”

It’s summer. I poked at my inventory curiously to see what would fall out to make a post and this simply happened. There’s plenty of stuff that was from the June’s Arcade round or Summer Fest or even earlier, but a little critter picnic needs what it does, no arguments. I did manage to sneak in some things that were still current, though.

Today’s the last day of Oh My Gacha, so if you want the eyes by Pin Me Down, skin by .Birdy., panda floaties by D-LAB or the seal pup by Alchemy, hop over here in a hurry. It’s also the last day for Creation.jp, where the ruffly summer outfit by *Edelweiss* is from. The top comes with a HUD so you can click more ruffly layers on it to form a romper, but I felt the weather was too warm for that. You have more time to shop for the things from the Season’s Story like the flower vases by [ keke ], the blanket and the sketchbook by 8f8 and the summer orange tart by Poche. The hair and all the little tweeters around are of course by !Ohmai and can be acquired from Hair Fair: the separate little birdies are a freebie that comes with a cage, but it’s modable and therefore unlinkable if you want your birdies to be freeee.
