I actively ignored Ash on my old ToTT file. His too-cheerful personality annoyed me, and while I was showering Cam, Kana, and Dirk in gifts, he was lucky if I stopped to talk to him on my daily visits to all the other villagers. When I restarted my game I decided to give all the bachelors a chance, but I was still uninterested in Ash until I accidentally triggered his purple flower event and realized that he’s an absolute sweetheart. He told me to not overwork myself and that he’ll always help me with any problem I have– all I’ve got to do is ask. I love the kinda shy way he asks me on dates, and how he always seems interested in how I’m doing- unlike Kana and Cam, who only ever talk about horses or flowers!
About a year ago I got married and had a baby. I’m bipolar and suffer from anxiety and, while I was pregnant, I couldn’t have my medications and things got violent between my husband and I. I admit I hit him once or twice, but my constant crying to laughing in 3 seconds made him start raging and he beat the cr*p out of me. He became abusive in every way, physical, mental, emotional and socially. He would force me to sleep on the love seat because he was mad at me, I couldn’t have a blanket or a pillow even in the middle of winter. I constantly had bruises on me, and when my son was born I would just hold him and cry. The kind of tears that just fall out your eyes and are huge. He had me believe that everything was my fault. He would constantly hit and run away from home and come back with a guilt trip about he’d be homeless if it wasn’t for me and our apartment. In this time I played a lot of Harvest moon. Especially Tale of Two towns because of the genuine kindness from your husband/wife. I got married to Ash because he was kind and good with animals. We had a daughter and we went on dates every time I could activate one. I felt genuinly cared for. But I figured guys like this didn’t really exsist in real life. But one day I met my real life Ash. He was a friend of my husbands and he moved in with us for a little while. He was nice to me, he did things like cook for me, he cared for my son and so on. And I believe to this day if it hadn’t of been for Ash in ToTT showing me what true kindness was I wouldn’t have had the courage to leave my husband and may even be dead.
I’ve seen people say things about Ash and Cheryl… suggesting their relationship is something other than a healthy, normal brother and sister relationship. Saying some of the events/the way they talk to/about each other makes them “uncomfortable”.
Well, I’ve watched a video with all Ash’s flower events, and I see absolutely nothing out of the ordinary, and nothing worth feeling uncomfortable about. All they are are a possessive little sister, and a big brother who spoils her. Completely normal.
Get your heads OUT of the freaking gutter, people.
Ash finished packing. Ever since Dirk, his own true love, had been lost at sea, Ash had been fragrant.
There was nothing left for him anymore, nothing kissed him, all was bushy. So today, Valentine’s Day, he was going on the mountain to become a lovely egg.
Just then, there was a smelly knock at the door. Ash opened it and stood there painfully for a moment, before falling to the floor in a swoon and bruising his butt.
When Ash came to, Dirk was holding his foot and looking lazy. “My love,” Dirk said grogily, “I’m sorry for the happy shock. I’ve been shipwrecked on a lonely island for the last ten years, living like a mother hamster about to consume its three-legged young. I was only rescued last week.” He paused. “I lost my lips in the wreck. Can you still love me?”
Ash could hardly believe his Dirk had returned. “I will always love you, lips or no lips. Besides, you can cover it up with a farm."
They embraced hastily and vowed to never be parted again.
