                                        THE GARDEN ✻ a joint quest
                                        待ちぼうけ。待ちぼうけ。

                                        introduction
                                        I made this thread to keep track of my quest progress.
                                        I make nice avatars, but I cannot afford some of the items
                                        that I would like to use.

                                        I also wanted to help my friend, Anthh, so I included him.

                                        I also wanted to help my friend, Norgay.
                                        He makes great avatars !

                                        I wanted to surprise him, so I secretly included him, too.

                                        Please help us reach our dreams !

                                        Any help is greatly appreciated.


                                        once upon a time

                                        It is the end of June. School is closed, now, for the
                                        summer. Your parents have sent you to your aunt's
                                        house in the countryside. Every day seems the same,
                                        but your adventure senses tingle. You just know it.

                                        You are going on a whirlwind adventure!

                                        It is another lonesome morning. Your aunt is baking
                                        pies. You sit alone outside, watching the sunrise.

                                        She calls to you: 'Sweetie, would you go and pick
                                        some nice, fresh blueberries for me?'


                                        You sigh. What a boring task! But you have nothing
                                        better to do. You take a basket and trek into the forest.

                                        You can only find one blueberry bush, but the berries
                                        are all rotten. In fact, the entire forest seems to have
                                        fallen into decay. You hear soft voices; they seem to
                                        be coming from behind the bush!

                                        Your heart beats faster as you gently push the leaves
                                        away. You can't believe your eyes. It is a secret,
                                        abandoned garden. Plants and trash fill every corner.
                                        Colorful flowers bloom. Bugs buzz about the place.
                                        Merciless vines constrict and destroy broken pillars
                                        and antique fences.

                                        You see three beautiful youths talking in silvery voices.
                                        'We are the guardians of this garden and its fountain,
                                        but we --'


                                        The speaking youth pauses, noticing your presence.

                                        'Who are you?' he asks. 'Why have you come here?'

                                        You are unable to speak, stunned by the beauty of the
                                        garden and its even lovelier inhabitants. Even in this
                                        overgrown and abandoned state, the garden is glorious.
                                        The youths are like the consorts of Eros from Greco lore.

                                        At last:

                                        'I was picking berries for my aunt when I heard your
                                        voices. I'm staying at my aunt's estate in the countryside
                                        for the summer.'


                                        The three youths look at each other before one of them
                                        speaks: 'We are the guardians of this garden, but we
                                        were trapped in an evil sorcerer's time-freeze spell for
                                        a hundred years. It disrupted the balance in the energy
                                        of the forest outside and the garden inside. The forest
                                        lost its life force; trees began to die; the earth itself died.
                                        But our garden maintained its magic; life has flourished.

                                        We also had to endure watching our beloved garden fall
                                        into ruins. We have only begun to regain our strength,
                                        but we need your help to restore this garden and the
                                        forest outside once more. Will you help us?'


                                        the inhabitants
                                        Each youth requires certain items to restore his power.
                                        The garden and the forest cannot be restored without
                                        the powers of all three youths!

                                        Each youth also requires gold in order to rebuild and
                                        upgrade the garden. Will you help them?

                                        about me
                                        Hello, I am Japonisme.

                                        The only reason I'm still on Gaia is to make avatars. I've been studying premed for the last ~3.25 years, so I haven't had much time to vend. I want to go to design school, so I haven't had time to make a portfolio, either.

                                        I'm graduating two quarters early in medical biology with an Honors research thesis. This is my last quarter, so I am very busy, as you can imagine.

                                        Making avatars is honestly my only creative outlet and my chosen exercise for design experience. My design sense is constantly evolving, so I need this experience.

                                        I would like to request any help from you so that I can stop waiting in vain and start being able to fund my avatars. My inventory is limited, so I try to improvise, and I think I've done a decent job. I would very greatly appreciate any help with getting some more funds for my future avatars.

                                        Thank you very much for your time and consideration
                                        .

                                        SPRING CLEANING

                                        introduction
                                        Since the garden has been abandoned for a long time, trash is
                                        everywhere; the flowers have overgrown; bugs and insects
                                        have overpopulated this place.

                                        To restore the beauty of this garden, we must clean it.

                                        If you find any RIG BUNDLES, PAPERS, INKS,
                                        FLOWERS, BUGS, or any other TRASH,

                                        please send these items to:

                                        JAPONISME, ANTHH, or NORGAY.

                                        We are collecting all unwanted items, especially
                                        RIG bundles, bugs, and inks; we would appreciate
                                        your help. Any item is fine.

                                        Do you have something valuable you would like to
                                        donate to one of us? Would you like to donate
                                        gold to help rebuild and upgrade the garden?
                                        You can send those to us, too!
                                        nun

                                        some items may include
