nocturne legacy

Nocturne: All right, well – I guess this is it. King and Yadira, you two have immunity tonight, so come on up! I guess usually the bachelorette would give you guys roses, but… uh–

King: Hip bump?

Nocturne: Hip bump!

Yadira: I’ll, uh, pass on the hip bump.

Nocturne: Fair enough. Congratulations – you guys are safe for tonight, and can both head upstairs to the bar!

The Nocturnal House is open!

Today we’re pleased to announce the opening of the long-awaited Nocturnal House! The two-story building is located in the west corner of the grounds, near the Reptile House and Mongolia of the Cretaceous. In this building, day and night are reversed. The lights are perpetually dimmed in the day, and only go up at night. This swapped day-night cycle allows visitors to see these animals active without having to be here at twilight.

Today many animals are active primarily or exclusively at night - and so it was in prehistory. Many Mesozoic mammals were nocturnal, and this legacy carries on today - many modern mammals are colorblind and have good senses of smell and hearing, useful traits for their nocturnal ancestors. This exhibit features two Mesozoic mammals and the early bat Palaeochiropteryx. Pterosaurs also conquered the night in the form of the large-eyed anurognathids, with lifestyles similar to modern frogmouths. And theropod dinosaurs also expanded into the nocturnal world; of these we have Stenonychosaurus (pictured above), and - as several of you have correctly guessed - the Cuban giant owl Ornimegalonyx.

but these may not be our only creatures that stalk the night…

Nocturne: Wren!

Wren: Oh my gosh – really?

Nocturne: Really! Congratulations! I think the rules say we have to use our million dollars on something together, and I’d really like to move out of my parents’ house, so–

Wren: You want to buy a house? Yes, oh my gosh, absolutely! And maybe we could have a reunion with everyone for a housewarming party–

[excited chattering]

Prelude: Well, Caramel and Yadira… you two played a good game, and I hope you enjoyed your time on the show. On behalf of SimTV and the Bachelorette, I’m please to offer you both a consolation prize of fifty thousand dollars.

Caramel: …just saying, it’s probably just because–

Yadira: Look, you’re not the one who’s almost five months pregnant, so–

Prelude: All right, all right, guys – can I get your attention for a hot sec? Thanks. So – there’s been a slight… change of plans. Well – a big change of plans. The, uh, reunion is going to have to be rescheduled.

Brick: What? Really?

Prelude: Yeah, uh, Nocturne and I have a little bit of a family emergency we need to deal with.

Nocturne: Family emergency?

Bug: Are you – um, having a good time?

Nocturne: Honestly, no.

Bug: I’m sorry – everyone seems so tense, I don’t know what to–

Nocturne: Don’t worry about it. You’re fine. Just family drama.

Bug: Oh – o-okay, if you say so. I would have planned two separate parties if I’d known Dakota’s family was so… divided.

Nocturne: Divided is one word for it.

Bug: What would you call it, then?

Nocturne: Cutthroat.

Bug: [laughing uneasily] The Vices do seem like shrewd businesspeople–

Nocturne: I mean that literally.

Bug: Oh….

This marks the official end of me playing The Nocturne Legacy.

>>As you can see, there are 5 couples of the transition world (see last post) and so it requires 5 generations of The Nocturnes as well. But we all know that it’s impossible for me to carry on because I’m focusing on my study. So, instead of ending it on Gen 2 like I did earlier, I put a little more story of Gen 3 in it. I know I lied a bit about the transition world being uninvolved but I can’t help it xD

Anyway I know Gen 3 was really confusing. I wanted to punch myself when I was thinking about the whole gen 3 things to be just in a dream of Peony and the vision of Nino and Mara. But to clear all confusions, I would like to confirm that it is the future and will happen one day. So, Pistachio and Barley will still exist. When the right time comes. Including all the moments in Suvadiva Island.

And thanks for reading them (again!)

You can go to THIS PAGE. It has all the informations and links needed to understand this legacy.

My next queued posts will be about the Hopkins from TS4 and then there will be no more posts from me.
