I’ve finally put up my town to visit! After going through so many beautiful towns I feel very 50/50 about my town now. I’m pretty sure it’s bc I’m ready to redo it again with new ideas now, but I at least wanted to get this version up.
I really wanted to find a day that it was a heavy thunderstorm so the rain would be amazing and thunder in this game looks cool, but I couldn’t find it and I’m sad about that… If you visit and tag screenshots please tag me! I would love to see them!
“Alright, next item on the agenda…” Bellamy tries not to roll his eyes as Jaha trails off, combing through his near-illegible notes.
Staff meetings usually end up like this, discussing whatever topics Jaha can recall or make up off the top of his head, until Vera inevitably fills the silence with updates on her pet programs nobody else wants that many details about (seriously, Bellamy is as big a fan of trees as the next person, but her Saturday morning wellness group is starting to sound more and more like a cult), and Luna sitting passively by, diligently taking notes and refusing to exchange even the slightest expression of mutual understanding that Bellamy shoots her way.
Don’t get him wrong; Bellamy likes his coworkers. It’s not the tight-knit, found-family feel Leslie Knope had prepared him for when he got hired to his small town’s Parks & Recreation division, but they each care a lot, in their own way. All of his favorite people care way too much about stuff. It’s what he likes in a person.
And he does like parks. Arcadia has some pretty nice ones, clean and well-kept with cool signs about historical things that happened nearby and/or noteworthy plant species. Not to mention that time last year he got to quash a movement for a confederate monument. That was one of his finer moments, if he does say so himself.
Mostly, he took the job to get a foot in the door of local government, but the soft spot he’s always harbored for parks– free, accessible, fairly safe spaces for him and Octavia to hang out in when they didn’t want to be at home, growing up– is what clinched the deal.
Still. Staff meetings are the worst.
He’s in the middle of wondering whether anyone is going to eat the last bagel Luna brought in, and also whether it has hemp in it, when Jaha says his name.
He blinks, looking up, and finds everyone staring at him.
“Sorry. I zoned out for a second. What’s up?”
“I was saying I have a special project for you,” says Jaha, and Bellamy groans inwardly.
