Maple's Landing - A Harvest Moon RP -> Seedlings in the Sun

Years ago, the tiny town of Maple’s Landing was an amazing sight. Bustling with activity, it seemed as though the land had received the Harvest Queen’s blessed touch; and it had.

Blissful life took a turn for the worse over a decade ago, when a great Calamity touched the land. Horrified by the events, the people rebuffed their Queen. Saddened by her people's snubbing, she put herself into a deep sleep and the land withered. Now, the town is tasked with saving their homeland before it's too late.

Join the townspeople in their arduous task and enjoy life in the meantime, form bonds, find love and live!

The cold winter winds grated against Marikit's cheeks as the whispers of snowfall bristled against the crisp air. The path to Pollen Appeal wasn't an arduous one but it was easy for her to get lost in a landscape blanketed in white. Her cheeks were rosy and burned a bit as she continued to trudge forward in the snow. She wasn't unused to snow but walking in it was another matter. Kit was always afraid to fall. If there was enough snow on the ground the snow would function as a cushion at least, but one couldn't be too careful of black ice and the dangers of a winter spill.

Every breath she took crystallized and drifted upwards into the ether. As a child, Kit often joked with her sister that they were smoking. Everyone smoked during the winter, but now it just reminded her that winter was nipping at her nose and she was no doubt a florid pink. She would need to get out of the snow quickly to allude a cold. Colds were a nasty ailment in this weather, especially when she was far from home and would have to contend with such a circumstance on her own. She remembered what her mother often did for her when she was younger at least but one could only live off of soup and juice for so long.

Kit removed her glove to reach for the door, knowing full well that she would be unable to turn it given the fact her winter gloves were two sizes too big and slipped off her hands often. Soon a chill rippled down her exposed hand braced the knob of the door and turned it briskly before shaking her boots free of snow - a common courtesy as she wouldn't want a customer trailing a dirty snow trail on her hardwood floors and doubted anyone else would want that either. Peering into the shop once she had shut the door, her dark eyes narrowed slightly in uncertainty. "Uhm...hello?" she inquired before inclining her head slightly. It might've been a tad bit early to collect seed for the Spring season but she figured keeping a stash of seeds to plant once Spring came along wasn't a bad idea. Perhaps she could pre-order some fertilizer too.

Notes: It's great.


The day had been slow with no one coming in. Though Ever couldn't really blame them. He doubted anyone really wanted to be going anywhere in the snow unless the absolutely had to. But he still made sure to keep seeds for the winter flowers on the tables. If someone did come by they wouldn't have to wait for him to get seeds from the winter stock in the storage rooms. Though he had seeds from other seasons in the storage room.

He finished watering the seeds he had planted, having a name card in front of each section as to not mix up what he was growing. The snowdrops was what he was growing the most of, but he did have other winter flowers growing. He grabbed the few remaining packets of snowdrops, deciding to add them to the ones he was going to sell.

He was about to descend down the stairs when he heard some one call out below. "Uhm...hello?" He was a little surprised that someone would stop by but also a little excited. He had given up on having anything to do after watering the seeds he had planted. And now it seemed like he would be able to talk to someone, even if that person was just here on business.

He walked down the stairs moving the block out of the way before moving it back. "Hello welcome to Pollen Appeal. Is there anything I can help you with?" he asked walking over to the woman, a huge smile on his face. The floor was cool under his feet, but he barely noticed. He would just have to remember to put his shoes back on before he went outside. Not that planned on going outside anytime soon.

Notes: So sorry for the wait!


Winter always seemed like the dreariest time of year but hardier plants grew. She was focused on spring planting primarily since she knew very little about winter planting cycles and growth. She'd have to look into that eventually, that way she had something to do during the winter. Maybe she could scrape up money to buy better gloves too. It was quite the oversight, granted she thought any gloves were good gloves and had forgotten she had child's hands. It was an honest but unfortunate mistake. She expected to make quite a few anyway but the sting of still hurt quite a bit.

Once a young man appeared at the counter, Kit immediately beamed at him. Ah, yes. I was, I was hoping to stock up on seeds for Spring if you have them available." They would remain in her home until the season actually came. She just hoped there were some available or if it was actually a seasonal thing. Which would be ironic but altogether logical. "I've only recently moved here so I wanted to be prepared." This young man was her neighbor, after all, it only made sense to introduce herself. That's what neighbors did, even if she was anxious about new people, he was the only one in the room. It wasn't too bad.

There was still so much to do until Spring, even if she couldn't lay the fertilizer and till the soil. She still had to familiarize herself with the town and get to her know her neighbors. All the while focusing on keeping her farm afloat...she never imagined it would take so much of her brain power. Her parents had done it so effortlessly, but she could do it too. She just needed a little time to gain her bearings, that was all.
