Interlude: House Tour
The Langurds have landed in…
I know, I wish it were something fancy like Dragon Valley or Aurora Skies or what have you, but I need my worlds reliable and functional or I will fly off the deep end. That and I’m cheap.
So here we are at the new house, situated on the waterfront ‘cause I need pretty things to look at. A brief overview: the architecture and decorating are loosely structured around the four elements. For the most part, the right hand side is fire-themed, the left is air, the middle of the house is water, and the yard and peripheries are earth.
Be warned, I tend to go overboard on the tacky decorations. You may want to resurface for air at some point during this post.
Here’s the ground floor:
And the upper storey:
It’s sparsely furnished for now, mainly because no money but also to test the routing. I’m naively hoping doorway pile-ups will be a thing of the past.
Now let’s go inside!
…Not you, Arabella. You’re not supposed to be in these pictures yet.
The main entryway:
I added some memoirs of Sunset Valley. Overkill on the purple? No such thing.
Here’s a boxy little laundry room, off to the side:
A study for Arabella (featuring the first flowers Razor gave her, the pink diamond he found, and “Homage to Lost Unicorn”):
The inner hallway, including the Human Aquarium and a purely decorative life-ring, because if you drown in there you’re probably on your own:
The Sultan’s lair cozy living room:
The main bathroom, also fire-themed:
The most spacious kitchen ever, which will be ultra useful considering nobody in this family cooks:
A second bathroom, where hopefully no important events will happen because it’s impossible to photograph in there:
Extra space turned party room in a last-ditch creative effort:
The back door, where floor tiles like to float aimlessly in the sky and won’t let me delete them:
One super-duper fun and fruity backyard:
I’ve decided to plant a tree for every heir or heiress. The Chinese Maple is for Razor, and the Creepy Tree is for Tewl (I was far too excited when I found that in the catalogue). Katana will get hers when she passes on the torch.
I struggled on the air theme. Hopefully the balloons and windmill convey the message:
Fire was a little easier, but equally tacky:
The gnomes have a fine patch of grass out back:
I believe I sold their canine companions so we could afford this pad.
Aaaand I almost forgot about upstairs:
Another bathroom, another Rarity tribute (yeah, I’m a little bitter about the unicorn thing):
And a Boomerang tribute, too—in this spare bedroom, which will be Azula’s for now:
Over here we have Katana’s room, which had to be refashioned since it would have been Razor’s if they’d gotten rich sooner:
A nursery (hint hint, nudge nudge):
And a “retiring heir” bedroom which I’m sure Razor will be thrilled to inhabit:
And is that— why yes, it’s another Rarity tribute! I would have liked a “Death to Joanna Rodgers” placard on the wall, but we ran out of money.
And that’s it! From here on out, the Langurds are living the life. Hopefully I’ll churn out another chapter in my last three days of unemployment!
