Generally, I’ve been pretty good at remembering to change the date back before I load the game up. Part of why I found a permanent end date was so I would easily remember what to change it to so the fact that I thought I had changed it already and hit continue and it happened to be exactly 5 days from the permanent date is just a complete punch in the face.
Like I’m sitting here and I’m upset and frustrated and I’m not sure if I want to punch something or cry. It just sucks. It really sucks. The only “saving grace” is it wasn’t one of my top 7-8 villagers. I adore Marcie and I’m still pretty upset, but if someone did have to move, I would say her and Julian (and maybe Molly) would be the ones that I’d be able to get past while others would just… make me never want to play again. And like, I’m angry with the whole moving mechanic and the fact that I can’t save villagers (and plus this means Marcie decided she wanted to move the day I chose my permanent date and yet never said anything the multiple times I did play), but it’s my fault if anything.
And there was nothing I could do–I booted it up and was hit with “Hey it’s the 12th oh and someone is moving sorry!” and even though I turned it off in a last ditch effort despite the fact that I knew it already saved, it meant nothing. And I even lost all the effort I put into getting all sparkly flowers
because lets be honest I am never again watering all my flowers.
I shouldn’t have to worry about anyone else moving in as long as I actually remember to keep the date the same and don’t clear out (or I suppose I should just disable) StreetPass :/ For now, I’ve just covered her house in flower patterns:
But I’m still feeling pretty down about it.
She sent a letter:
And if she was so lonely, she should have stayed
and mentioned it one of the several times I did have the date right
I already had her photo so I didn’t take the one from the letter, but bleh. The whole situation sucks.
The whole reason I turned the game on was because I was getting so excited about Happy Home Designer and was actually thinking of streaming Dream Suites today and working on my badges some more, but now I just have no motivation to do so again.
I’d be tempted to move Ruby back in if I could, but:
1. Marcie is the first to move since Ruby moved out so due to that stupid mechanic, I can’t have Ruby come back.
2. Who knows where a house will go if I moved in any of my other favorite villagers. I had to place so many temporary things in order to prevent certain villagers moving places and moving anyone now would just be a complete risk.
So I’m in a lose-lose situation and not much I can do. And I don’t have anyone to blame but myself. At least my Dream Address still shows how it was supposed to be. Too bad I no longer live in it 🙁
