Fluffy the Dino

by iheartbadtz:mymelody.com

Fluffy was a dino I got from Keroleen after battling finding and returning her extremely ferocious carnivorous violent evil pets way back in FB. Now, I know a lot of you adore having a pet trailing behind you and all (our dogs do that in RL), but in HKO, it turns into a pet owner’s nightmare.

First, he wants to eat his owner.

rawr

Down, boy! It took all effort to restrain him with a heart plushie (and dozens and dozens of jelly and frenzy jelly) to keep him from gobbling me up.x_x

After all the jelly he ate, his stomach must’ve rumbled, because…

bathroomdino

Gaaah. Why couldn’t he be like Wilson and just fertilize my (dead) strawberries?

I was just thinking of ditching him and just go for a nice, friendly little starfish (preferably one who doesn’t feel the need to eat its master!) and just when I was about to tell him, Fluffy suddenly became all emotional and started sobbing and banging his head against the wall.

bestfriend

Aaawww…^_^ Makes you suddenly forget he once attempted to chomp your head off.

Oh, if you have free time, can you click on this link? Don’t worry, it’s not a virus or anything, you don’t even have to watch the video (especially if you have an easily queasy stomach). I just need hits to unlock some wallies (I know, I’m getting geeky.:P Allow me my few moments of geekiness.:P)

Happy Hearts is Now Over

by iheartbadtz:mymelody.com

So sad, HKO’s closed its doors once again.:/

I’m happy though, because for the first time, I was able to be in the last few moments of an HKO beta. Yay!

I ended up not being able to contribute to the charity event (rats!), but I did get some guild screenies.

screenie4 

Serenity and JamJam started a line right beside the farm manager, so I ended up leaving my farm to join ‘em.

Pretty soon, we got attention from the people, like in the form of Pure…

screenie3

and GM-Zel.

screenie6

While we were sitting down, apparently, someone was getting married in Paris.

DeevFactor apparently married… My Melody.o_o (If someone’s got screenies of this, I would love to see ‘em.XD)

Anyway, while we were sitting down, for some weird reason, people started appearing where we were, until the area was filled with people:

screenie8

And when I say filled, I mean only that area had people:

londonmap

Gaaah. Claustrophobia striking in.x_x

Bacon being emo…

screenie25

Speaking of Bacon, he made us troop all over to Paris for a group screenie before the event ended, so we marched all the way there, braving the wolves, the pythons, and the yam to go and have a photo-op. While I walked, I realized that I was actually a triplet:

triplets

o_o Heroes vibe, anyone?

Anyway, we settled down. Major lag going on, because the place was filled with people:

Sat with my guildmates.

Can you spot which GM got rid of the uniform?XD

The end :( :

I made it to the final screenie! Yay! I didn’t think I would, since I was at the edge of the group already, but I’m glad I made it in.^_^

Btw, congrats to guild leaders/robots Kaito and Kenman, and the third robot Sere (XD) for winning in the Happy Hearts quest event!^_^ Congrats also to Miyabi and Yueya!

See you all next time!

Apologies

by iheartbadtz:mymelody.com

Has Happy Hearts ended? I just want to send an apology to my guildmates (HKO Founders) for being MIA the past few days. Real life caught up with me, and I had to do a load of stuff for school over the weekend (contacting NGOs, writing papers, preparing for a proposal defense), so I wasn’t able to go online.x_x I feel really bad about it, since I promised myself I’d be really active this time around (especially with the charity event going on), but circumstances made me not follow through with that.:/ Sorry, guys.

No Quests

by iheartbadtz:mymelody.com

It feels really weird not having quests in HKO. Take it from someone who waited until the last minute to finish the FB quests.XD

Wonder if the GMs are going to be coming out with something tomorrow. Can’t wait to see what it is.^_^

Happy Quests

by iheartbadtz:mymelody.com

The quests are finally over for Happy Hearts. I’m a bit sad about it, because it means bye-bye HKO again, but it was fun.:) As the_otakutopian said, at least we got to spend some time with our friends, both from and outside our guild.

Yeah, yeah, I know, I’m getting sentimental. *sniff* I guess this is my luckiest HKO beta so far, since I was able to meet with most of the people I know from the blogging world.:P

Onwards to pictures!

I finally got my Badtz farm. He had the strangest form of acne, so I covered his face with strawberries to keep him hidden.XD AlmightyTallest was right: once your plants start producing fruit, there’s no off button! They just go on and on and on…

badtzfarm

 

The only off button you could use is when you don’t water it, as we found out when we were farming in Kaito’s farm. Rainy, whitensilver and I were actually trying to steal his crops, but then he caught us and made us his slaves.XD kaitofarm1

Apparently, the plants don’t bear fruit if you don’t water them, and if you ignore their cries of help, they shrivel up and die.o_o Good thing we noticed earlier, or he plants would’ve been as dizzy as Kaito’s python XD (j/k Kaito!) Seriously though, I find it great that we can farm on someone else’s farm now. What happens is that what the other "workers" gather will automatically be placed in the owner’s inventory. Sad thing is, if the owner leaves while you’re still in his/her farm, you get automatically evicted.x_x

While we were in the farm, Kaito (who was planning on doing a pet guide) was asking on what the stats of the water dogs (I refuse to call them curs!) are, and then suddenly, two of ‘em started running around!

cur 

This is why I don’t take my pets out for a walk.XD

Speaking of pets, did you know that the merchants could also have pets? Don’t believe me? Check this out:

seedman's_pet

Seedman’s got a pet spooky tree! And no, that’s not my pet, since my three "equipped" ones are my water dog, dino, and rat.

hkocupid

Lookie how cute Cupid is!^_^

 

One of the most memorable chats I’ve had was the one with Bi:

bi

We came up with the craziest conspiracy theory involving GM-Neverender and GM-Bacon, with GM-Zel thrown in the mix. Not contented, we then plotted to lay a trap for GM-Wayne so we can steal his umbrella.XD Yeeeaaah, don’t tell them, please.XD

Another person I saw was Tigerlyly.

weirded out tigerlyly

No, the wind bell tree isn’t the one that’s talking.x_x I think I weirded out tigerlyly because I was gathering cotton even after the quests were finished.:P I wanted to raise my sewing skills, so I was collecting cotton to sew into fine cotton (actually creating them this time, and not buying them XD heh, thanks to RainyG for telling me about the Harbor shop).

Also seen was tee, who I almost ignored because my net’s connection suddenly messed up:

tee

I ended up just sitting down for almost an hour, to wait for my net to be better.XD

Other people from the HKO blogging ring who I’ve seen but wasn’t able to take screenies of are ripplecloud, JamJam, and noliai.:P

First Day in HH

by iheartbadtz:mymelody.com

I spawned (sounds weird) in Harbor, so the first thing I did was rush off to see if I could get to New York and maybe do some Christmas quests I wasn’t able to finish (yes, I know Christmas ended two months ago.:P It doesn’t hurt to try, though). Sad, the portal to New York disappeared.:( I guess I’ll only see Badtz Land on Open Beta already.

I feel lucky that I met a lot of friends in-game in the first day of HH.

First person I saw was the_otakutopian:

duel with otaku

Urm, yeah. We had a duel. Rose vs. broom after 20 paces.

 

Next was Starrfire:

starrfirehko

Badtz meets LTS.XD

 

Then Juicy and Tidesong in one (surprised!) screenie:

juicytidesong

 

I also saw Serenity, who offered to give her bee stinger wand guide. Her laptop’s a bit weird, so she said she might poof while we’re talking…

And she did.

poofing serenity

Now you see her, now you don’t.XD We weren’t able to trade when she got back though, because there was a surprise server reset that disconnected all of us.

It’s alright Sere, I can get it from you when we’re both online.:P

Oh! And I finally got my dream pet: the rat! Yay! I named him Balloon, since that’s what the little things reminded me of. You know what he told me the first time I brought him out?

embarrassing balloon

Oh dear. I hid him again in a hurry. Must remember to toilet train him first before I take him out for a walk again.x_x

 

I also did my first quest, with Chococat who seems to be really worried.

worriedchoco

See? Told ya he’s worried. Poor guy.

hko-valentines-event_bigsizeI was able to go to Paris eventually to get the recipe for Cupid, and I got the pot thing done (thanks to the Founders for helping me out on this!) The problem occurred when I started farming for strawberries (first it was the flies, and now there are rocks?o_O)They weren’t growing, even after watering and fertilizing them. I was desperate enough to try the top secret strawberry hypnotism…

strawberry hypnotism

But they didn’t even budge.x_x Anyone able to help me out on this? Serenity said that someone said someth about the plants needing sun to grow. Where do I get that?

Happy Hearts - GM-Bacon’s Instructions

I <3 Sandwich Cookies

by iheartbadtz:mymelody.com


You Are Traditional and Dependable
You tend conform with the rest of society, even if you aren’t trying to. No one would accuse you of being a freak!

You are a very active, on the go person. You get restless if you’re forced to sit still for too long.

You’re easy going and easy to be around. You aren’t picky or high maintenance.

You seek security in your life. Feeling safe is important to you.

Because of this quiz, I’m now craving for those double-layered Oreos (I can’t remember what they’re called, only that they’re yummy.:P) Meh, I’m gaining weight again.x_x Must. Stop. Stress. Eating.

Infomercials

by iheartbadtz:mymelody.com

 

I don’t know about you, but I’ve watched enough infomercials to last me a laugh-time.:P Some friends and I were talking about the weirdest stuff we’ve seen on the "As Seen on TV" ads, so I decided to look for the strangest products that they’ve featured there:

2_deck_card_shuffler

An automatic card shuffler (Saves you the time and prevents carpal tunnel syndrome for the card sharks out there)

inflatable-wife

inflatable-husband

Inflatable wife/husband (don’t ask me why x_x)

rotato-express

The rotato express (peels potatoes by rotating them!)

bark_control_collar 

Bark controller (Keep your beloved dogs from doing what they love to do best!)

doggysteps-large  

Doggy steps (Help your dogs make your couch all nice and furry)

peticure 

Peticure (And while you’re at it, bring out the nail polish. Time to do nail art on Spike!)

 

Infomercials. Gotta love ‘em!
