If you've read this blog for any length of time you'll know that I'm an old romantic, through and through and if that doesn't give you enough of a clue as to which Festival is my favourite then please refer to the picture above. It is, of course, Love is in the Air. Pilfkin-Mk-1-who-is-now-Shadrynne has the Love Fool title and I was chuffed to bits when I finally got it. This was, uhum, last year? Maybe the year before? I know that they changed it all this year *sad face* which made it less fun. No more flirting with guards *sniffle*
I like the mini achievements - I spent ages with heart candies filling up my bank slots that I'd been sent or given by
admirers friends in game and I couldn't bear to trash them. Call me soppy, but I liked being showered with rose petals, and I (should) have a PhD in Flirting with Disaster... Romantic picnics - bring them on - as often as possible. Little black dresses? A staple of every woman's wardrobe surely - one more is no bad thing! Roses - always welcome (hint, hint to ALL the men out there...!) Chocolates - ummm, hullo?? Getting shafted... oh *that* sort of shafted - not *that* sort of shafted... Ahem. Love rockets? Oh dear, this post is about to go horribly wrong... PvP achievements - grrrrrrr! Hated by PvPers and non-PvPers alike. Please take these out...
I know that people hate Valentines Day - I always felt sorry for my partner as it's the day before my birthday so they have a double hit to the wallet, and I understand that it can be a crass commercialisation of emotion but actually... and please feel free to grab yourself a bucket or similar now, I like celebrating love and romance. They're two things that can make your life amazingly joyful. And I know that you don't need chocolate, flowers or sexy dresses to celebrate - but isn't it nice to have an excuse (in game and out?)
