all day 🌸 everywhere

[As many might be aware of, today is White Day. Just like every year Valentine's Day tends to be a big deal, White Day is often picked as a celebration of sorts (innacurate as that is). So it's not at all surprising to see some renewed decorations here and there, with themes of teddy bears, flowers, chocolates... all white, obviously. It might put one in the mood to set up a date with that important person, or maybe take advantage of the sudden abundance of sweets, or even pick some flowers for decorations (jams are forbidden for the rest of the year).

Perhaps one's also waiting for some silly thing to happen, such as mistletoe showing up to make things awkward again. Well, maybe it's that feeling of paranoia that seems to be working against you at first - maybe your nerves made you drop that coffee, perhaps being focused on what the Usyagi have up their... sleeves? is what makes you miss out on that important thing someone was telling you, making them upset you're so distracted. Could be that being so focused on what-ifs is what causes you to get distracted while preparing a special meal, ending with it burned...

But once your cute picnic gets suddenly rained on, or your friend chooses today to deliver some horrible news to you, or your favorite book gets lost, or your peaceful trip to the safe areas of the forests end with you running away from a monster, it might seem like today's simply not your day. Naturally, as bad luck will haunt the residents of the islands for a good while, so perhaps that paranoia wasn't all for nothing.]

all day 🌸 everywhere

[It's pretty clear once Valentine's Day arrives, as Miracle Country embraces the pinks even more than the usual. Silly heart-shaped decorations over any of the buildings, even framing doors and windows outside the different houses, all sorts of flowers everywhere despite the cold, an increase in the sappiness of the chocolates available by the candy shop...

But more importantly, the Usyagi are joining the celebration. Armed with tiny little pink bows, they're being particularly sneaky today, hiding behind trees and buildings, their tiny beady eyes even more suspicious than usual. Of course, they can't get a good shot if everyone's aware of their presence! And shoo they will - special magic arrows that will help people get in the Valentine's Day mood.



Maybe you'll start to blush and fumble over words shyly while talking to a friend (isn't it easier to realize the warm feeling in your chest this way?), maybe you're more confident and start openly flirting (it's about time, right?), or feel like making a dramatic love declaration out of nowhere (the flashier the better!). Maybe you're feeling oddly jealous in ways you never did before, or feel nervous because that person's not spending time with you and feel like fixing it (set up a special date for the two of you!). Maybe you suddenly trip and end up falling right into that special someone's arms!

Or... maybe it wasn't the special someone, and it's just your friend you don't have romantic feelings for? Maybe you were just trying to buy some food? Well, what's more romantic than a little spontaneity? Who knows what you've been missing out on? Alright, maybe the Usyagi aren't being too careful when choosing when to shoot. You can't blame them for trying to help with the mood a little, and the effects of their special arrows aren't permanent anyway. No harm done, right?]

all day 🌸 by the forest

[Forget the cold! Forget the awkward mistletoe! Forget the-- Okay, you get the point. It's time for hot springs! And what better way for Miracle Country to deliver anything than out of the blue and for no reason? Exactly!!

For the duration of the day, the special path to the forests will reappear, and for those who were around early last year, they'll remember what it means. The path takes you directly to a quiet location where natural hot springs are, along with special cabins for changing clothes, washing up before the springs, and relaxing afterwards with some drinks and a meal if you'd like - you could even stay the night if you'd like, or earn a few konpeito by taking on some tasks and help others around.

So time to grab some robes and a towel and enjoy yourselves! And maybe wonder how come the springs seem to all have sakura petals scattered over the water... Well, considering where everyone is, it's not that much of a surprise, is it?]
