Not quite, but it would be so cute if they did leave those. As the new year approached, my autumn babies had grown up and turned elderly, so as is already a tradition, onwards to the Wild Woods we went!

I didn’t even need a backpack this time, Sam and Ely hitched a ride in my hood.

The snow did seem a bit problematic for the smaller roos…

Elysia soon showed me why… lots of snow, ickle roo feet!

Of course they both needed goodbye-cuddles first… Samhain here will surely go and track down Pihlaja and Talvi, the dryad parents of his.

As for Elysia, my little foxy one, I’m pretty sure she’s going to try and find the Santa Roo. She was always after the noms so much.

Sam looks like he’s about to wave goodbye there, and maybe he did. Just before skipping off into the new adventures~


Santa Roo

Of course he is real! And he brings noms to all good roolings tonight!

Autumn Babies

Lumi got lonely pretty much immediately after the other three dryads had departed and needed lots of snuggling, the big baby.

The next day was fortunately officially Halloween and so I coaxed two autumn babies. Both are a shade of red with green eyes, so cute ❤

I think Lumi’s initial enthusiasm got a bit of a setback after lil Elysia decided she likes honeybaths, though…

She’s called Elysia, because Ely gave her to me to match the one I decided to coax from Talvi and Pihlaja’s nests. She’s adorable little red with Irish eyes with an obvious penchant for sweets and being pretty. And honey-coated.

I named the boy Samhain, which is the main reason I waited for Halloween before luring them both out. He’s an autumn with clear Irish eyes, so here’s to hoping they’ll make more of those together!

They haven’t asked to be snuggled yet, but I’m patient. They just need a lot of petting and time first to get comfortable, yesyes. I’m sure the skulls have nothing to do with the matter!

Fall Farewells

The two months of active roo life goes so fast! All my dryads became elderly and I threw a birthday-Halloween-farewell party for them.

I’m still not sure if Pihlaja just hoorayed about the noms in general or if she was objecting about Lemminkäinen trying to grab the noms, but obviously the rascal had to be removed from the center of the table before the feasting could occur. Noms and fun were had. ^_^

Then it was time to take the trip to the Wild Woods. We arrived at night and found the sim having seasonal mood all over!

There were glowing flittery things in the air! We had to stop and stare for a long while just to admire and boggle.

Of course there were the last snuggles to be had, one by one… here’s Lemminkäinen.

And Talvi…

And Pihlaja, my perky-eared pretty. She was the most difficult one to give up.

I think staying up all night watching flittery ghostly things tired them up, so the moment I set them down, they decided it was time for a nap. So I waited for a while, just watching them sleep.

There was plenty to ponder once they woke up. New lands, new roo-scents in the air, lots of tall grass to go play hide-and-seek in…

As the dawn turned into the morning I stopped delaying and one by one let them run free. All but one.

Lumi stayed with me and became a meepet. She’ll become the wise maternal fussing guardian figure for the new roo couple, what with being a dryad messenger (and a honey addict).


I am too easily amused. Circle had to go out of town for a few days and asked if we could check in on her roos every now and then. I sure can, oyes.

This is me checking in on Nala, the toy snowpaw. Vanilla and strawberries seems to be the way to go…

Roos on Film

…no, not really. But I did stage them watching a movie about the Great Roodini with the Steam Hunt loots, so… some close-ups from that!

Pihlaja is the operator of the projector and thus got to wear the awesome belt! (It’s really an arm belt with a scope, but for a roo it’s a belt with a Gadgetric Tool of Great Importance!)

The Great Roodini on the big screen! Talvi and Lemminkainen are mesmerized. @.@

Singing Stones

I had to involve both my roos and the Singing Stones puzzle in my main blog, used them for the khaki-colour challenge. However, I took a couple of extra versions of that last picture… fine, fine, I took about ten extra versions of it, but really like two!

I like this one because Lumi (the sula) is looking at Sonya all ‘What ARE you doing?’ I swear they were laughing at me the whole time I was trying to figure out the puzzle. Let alone trying to chirp at me what to do and thinking I’m dumb because I just kept doing things wrong.

And this one made me laugh because I could just hear them chirping the following:

Lumi: “…and now she turned off the lights.”

Talvi to Pihlaja: “You’re all latticed now.”

Pihlaja to Talvi: “Shush. I think it’s fashionable!”

Lemminkainen in the background: “Mwahahahaa, I’m the invisible ninja roo now!”

And while I’m showing off my roo-abuse for fashion, here’s another one from today:

Pihlaja helping me solve the secret of the sun dial! ❤
