towns and villages

psa for non-Americans and non-New England Americans

you know the Salem witch trials? that thing where nobody got burned and nobody was an actual witch but it was still a big deal because 19 innocent people were executed?

well the place we call Salem now was not where that happened. that place used to be called Salem Town. the trials happened in what was then called Salem Village (also sometimes “the farms”). it was an agrarian community with stronger Puritan values that sometimes clashed with the more worldly trading center Salem Town

after the trials Salem Village was so ashamed that it changed its name to Danvers and went on to experience a bunch more dark and tragic stuff. Salem Town said “sweet, tourism!” and jumped on the witch bandwagon and is now a center of pretty nice magic shops, pretty tacky tourist attractions, and pretty pretty historical dance events

Danvers has a laser tag place and they used to have a Denny’s but it closed

the end

okay so I think it’s adorable when people have faves like marshal and julian and merengue so don’t get me wrong and think I’m knocking that - but when I see mayors who ADORE random villagers that most people don’t care about or even know like camofrog or dora or roald or victoria or basically whoever its just so sweet because you know there’s some really special place in their heart for that villager and it’s THE CUTEST thing ever especially when it’s villagers that they adored when they were younger from older ac games it makes me SO HAPPY

How to get rid of a villager on ACNL:

So there’s a villager in my town that I really hate because he’s a douche and I wanted to show him how I feel so

I dug holes around him…

trapping his Capri Sun lookin ass.

In his path, I planted a pitfall seed.

He walked into it… and sure enough …

He freaked the fuck out

I had effectively pissed him off so I went home to change outfits for the next set of photos. Then I searched for him…

and trapped him yet again…

planted the seed…

waited from afar…

slowly approached…

and that bastard fell for it again.

Later, I talked to him and he sternly announced his plans.
