So, further adventures of Ripley Hallows.
I'm well into the gen - lots more playing than updating - so there should be no massive gaps between updates.
The whole "looking for a mate" stage might seem short, and that's because it is short - for some reason Gadwin didn't feel like screenshotting one of my play sessions early on. I re-staged a few important pictures,
but some of the situations couldn't be recreated and are therefore missing.
Hopefully things will run smoothly from here on out, otherwise we're going to have to start talking about a Hallows Curse.


My dearest most awesomest squishy-little-sister-Lambykins, aka Lambert Agatha Hallows,

Yes, I know you don't have a middle name. That greeting needed one, so take "Agatha" as a gift, with love.

You've probably heard from the parentals by now that I arrived safely in Rock Hudson and that the old Hallows place is a total dump.

Romero loves it here, at least. When I see the place through his eyes, it's all an adventure.

I've got a little camp set up on the old porch. Doesn't look like much, but it's all I can afford.
Should keep me fed and warm through the autumn.

The girls in this town are just the most beautiful I've ever seen.
[Note: Ripley randomised as gay twice (once either side of a game crash) so I just decided to go with it.]

Some of the folks around town are pretty interesting, too.

Living out here on my own, with only Romero to keep me company, is pretty lonely.
I looked all over for someone to keep me company - and I mean everywhere.
I visited the diner, the pub, even the local church (only elders there - big surprise.)

In the end, though, my mind kept returning to one place, over and over.

Her name is Yuki.

She's so sweet, Lamb!

And a hell of a good kisser.

Things might have moved a little more quickly than the possibly should have...

... are you sitting down?

I'm pregnant.

I will ring mum and dad, so don't freak out about having to keep secrets. I'm doing enough freaking out for everyone right now.

Camping out has been pretty fun most of the time.

Still, I'm pretty excited to have a roof!
I got a job at the golf links from the local paper, and then some guy at the golf links offered me a job at their servo.
Not particularly glam jobs, but hey! Roof!

I'm getting things set up indoors, too.

I was just getting to think "Hey, you know what, this place isn't so bad after all!" when it started snowing.

Pretty, yes.

Freeze-to-death-in-my-tent cold, also yes.

Thrift-store mattress to the rescue!

I've called Yuki a few times since I found out I've got a bun in the oven, but she's pretty freaked out.
There's definitely not going to be a white-wedding happy ending here in the near future.

The next house triumph - running water. Bubble baths are nice.
So is not having to go to the public loos next door every time I need to wee.

And on that TMI-fuelled note, I shall bid you farewell. Write to me please. Ring me. Facebook me. Send smoke signals and carrier pigeons.
I miss you like hell.
Much love, Ripley

I really enjoy your writing. this entry made me feel a lot of sympathy for Ripley, and also made her seem like someone I could relate to.

At least the baby[s] should be cute? :]

Adorable Alle! I love that Ripley was living in a tent...
It really made the whole story very interesting! I can't wait to read more.

Hah, the tent is awesome! Poor Ripley left pregnant and alone in the snow... Wishing you better luck from here on, Ripley :) Can't wait to see the babies.

I like the way you are writing this. The "letters home" style is really nice.

Hope things get better soon for poor Ripley. Sleeping in a tent in the snow is no way for a girl to live!
