stardew valley gothic.

you made it to this plot of overgrowth in the middle of the afternoon. the mayor and the carpenter you’ve just met seem kind enough and tell you to get some rest. inexplicably, you do. you were not tired, but it is morning now.

you arrived on a spring day. you woke up on the first day of spring.

the rooster’s crow wakes you every morning at six a.m. sharp. you do not own a rooster. nor does marnie, or any of your other neighbors. you try not to think about this.

people here are forgetful. they tell you the same stories over and over again. you smile and nod and never mention this to them. something compells you to stay silent. you do.

between the hours of two a.m. and six a.m. mayor lewis visits your farm. you do not know who he is selling your items to so late in the night or how the money ends up in your wallet the next morning. despite this, he never seems tired. one summer day he asks of you’re growing blueberries on your farm. you are. he should know.

the memory of your grandfather will never be seperated from your farm, but it seems to fade the further you travel away from his grave. he is there. he is waiting.

you fell asleep in your house. you woke up in your bed. you did not get a letter. you live alone.

there are monsters here. you are brave enough to fight but weak enough to lose. when you wake up you have lost your items, your memory, and something else. something indescribable. you feel empty.

you stare at your reflection in the mountain lake. your eyes are wide and unweilding. you never develop wrinkles around them. you do not know how long you have been here. it feels like centuries.

the people around you hault when you bite into your meal. they resume once you are finished. they do not look at you. they just move on.

you know the names and faces of everyone in town. you do not remember anyone from the city. they are gone, now.

abigail sits in the graveyard. she swallows the amethyst you gave her and walks home. she does not look at you.

you do not know who the old mariner is. he only appears in the rain.

the train never stops here, only passes through.

sometimes you wonder why you are so strong. you lived in the city your whole life but do not remember anything about it. you do not question it and put more stones in your backpack.

the bus route to calico desert is out of service. the bus route to the city no longer exists. you can never go back.

penny tells you she finds the rain on the roof of her trailer calming. you go inside one rainy day. you do not hear anything. she smiles at you. her eyes are like mirrors. she will not let you in.

you watch tv for hours every morning. it is still six a.m. when you turn it off.

Strikethrough = What I have read

Lewis Headcanon #1

Lewis’ family has a farm, they grow a variety of crops but mostly corn and soybeans. Its out at the edge of town and there isn’t much around them other than other farms. Some active and others sold and left abandoned from years ago to recently. They also have a farm stand where they sell extra food mostly from Lewis’ mother’s garden, where she grows all sorts of food. They keep what they need to eat and sell the extra. Lewis’ mom runs it during the day for a few hours and her son sometimes takes over too if he’s free. Lewis lives with his mom, dad, and grandmother. His dad sometimes gets help with temp working for the harvests but Lewis’ dad, mom, himself, and a farm hand do most of the work year round.

With all the farm work Lewis is normally fit from it and despite people asking him, he never spent any time on sports. Lewis is a early riser but only out of habit much to Vivi and Arthur’s grief since he’s awake and ready to go far too early for their liking. Since the farm is far away from the town center Lewis often had to entertain himself with exploring around him, listening to stories his grandma Edith would tell him, reading, and helping out his mom with her work. His mom and grandma are avid seamstresses and many of Lewis’ clothes are made for him. When helping out on the farm he would get pretty dirty so when he’s not working Lewis enjoys dressing better than in just t-shirt and jeans. He loves suits and own several nice ones but tends to stick to vests because he has more mobility when exploring. Lewis also doesn’t get cold easily.

Lewis was taught to cook also by his mom and grandmother, its why he’s more of a mama’s boy. His dad has to work a lot and he enjoys he can ensure his son doesn’t have to as much so he can spend time on other things. Later his dad is the one who pushes Lewis to go solve mystery’s as part of Mystery Skulls. That he could do more than just dig around in the dirt like his old man. He had hoped one day he wouldn’t need Lewis to take over the farm and could find his own successful path in life.

Lewis’ body was buried in their family plot next to his grandfather and great grandparents.
