Interlude: Welcome to the Enchanted Dollhouse
You didn’t think the generation heading was just a metaphor, did you? XD
Take it from an English major: nothing is ever “just a metaphor.”
You probably caught on to my heavy-handed foreshadowing when Lira smashed the toy dollhouse and vowed to create its replica. No? Or maybe you’re a comment reader and you’ve noticed umbramuse and me talking about Midnight Hollow. Or, if you’re as unperceptive as I am and this is all new to you, that’s great! SURPRISE! Confetti and fanfare and ribbon snipping and all that.
Anyway, here we are in creepyville, third home of the Dysfunkshinul Legacy. I know what I said about “clean and simple” neighbourhoods, and Sunset Valley is still my favourite. But a while back, I had a stroke of madness and splurged on some Simpoints, which I never do. I decided to invest them in sprucing up the fourth generation of this wacky business. And no, I’m not talking about the Haunted Spruce Trees lining the Langurds’ new abode.
But wait, you say. What about Balboa? I thought this was supposed to be a dual heirship, so why should he have to live by Lira’s rules in her creepy-ass dollhouse?
The answer: He shouldn’t! Which is why I did a dumb thing and built two separate houses on the same lot. Now Boa gets his own moss-covered forest lodge complete with a wishing well, and I get to deal with multiple-front-door confusion! Shoot me now!
Tewl’s Creepy Tree fits in really well with the new surroundings. Razor’s Chinese Maple and Katana’s Buckthorn? Not so much.
I still haven’t decided on trees for Lira and Boa. If anyone is an expert on the tree catalogue, by all means feel free to suggest one.
The ground floor.
The upper storey.
Let’s step inside, shall we?
Sorry — almost there.
Recognize the colour scheme? It’s one of my favourites.
Please ignore the missing ceiling tiles as we roam into the kitchen… they won’t hurt you.
Probably the least functional kitchen I have ever built, but oh well, it’s cute.
That snow cone machine probably feels like a bastard at a family reunion.
Ara’s pinkest-of-pink office has gained a few degrees of class.
Speaking of class…
My favourite room in the house. ^ ^ 😀
If I had to pick a theme for this one, I’d call it “mint chocolate chip ice cream.”
This one’s easy. It’s modelled after the Wall from Game of Thrones.
Albeit with a bit more colour and some artsy touches.
Three guesses what’s through this door…
Only the six coolest ponies in Equestria.
A super secret, restricted-access doorway…
Because no one watches Lira pee.
Also because the staircase leads to this.
A toy workshop…
And a massively scarring nursery.
…and Lev’s. They’re totally separate and I’m not forcing the twin thing on them at all.
They do have to share a tiny bathroom, though. *shrugs* My floor plan had some kinks.
This is Katana’s room. Weston just gets to live in it.
Perfectly equipped for…
(Wine rack includes Katana’s three original blends, “Blood of the Brothers,” “Fire in the Heart,” and “Fire in the Hole.”)
…and private dance parties in front of her life’s work.
You know you’ve done well for yourself when your whole bathroom is made of gold.
This is her “kind of outside but not really” retreat that probably will never be used tbh.
This monstrosity sits at the top of the east tower.
And this one (Florin’s room) is buried in the middle of the roofwork.
Guess I forgot to take interior pics of Boa’s stone hut. Too bad, so sad. Next time!
