Wow, my first post in my new blog…This is flaptastic!
Although my arrival date to Pixie Hollow was just three days ago, I feel as though I am an elder fairy! Even though I’m not a Member, I have traveled and searched every non-Member-allowed nook and crannie of the hollow, played every game, accepted and have nearly completed every quest, and visited all the shops and venues. Truthfully, I’m feeling a tad bored now that the new shininess of Pixie Hollow is dulling down…
As a non-Member, I now know my limits and boundaries after a painfully humiliating experience at Summit Style. There I was, a pouch full of rose petals I worked so long and hard to collect to buy that gorgeous Hyacinth Pink Rose Skirt I had tried on so many times, only to find out I couldn’t have it. Denied because I’m not a Member. I was devastated! Why is there even a clothes shop (Bobbin’s Basics) that regular community fairies can buy clothes at if no other store will allow it? Clothes should be achieved through games or quests for non-Members instead, because it’s confusing to New Arrivals. Yes, I still have a small chip on my shoulder about this >:-(
Although I REALLY want that beautiful skirt and possibly a new hair accessory from time to time, I just don’t have the personal funds to become a Member. I’m fine knowing I will never enter the Ballroom, other Member-only locations, and can never bake cookies or make clothing to keep for myself, but why can’t I purchase items at shops when I have to work so hard to get the items to pay for them?!? Leave it to The Never Council to make you pay TWO fees for an item that possibly only has a quality grade of 80.
Speaking of The Never Council, I was so miffed about my hard efforts going to waste that I wrote a letter and submitted it to their suggestions box. I explained how I love Pixie Hollow and how much I enjoy living there, but then went on to offer suggestions for making the experience more enjoyable for New Arrivals and other non-Members. Well, my letter received a response from “Josh” saying he doesn’t see any changes being made to further enhance the experience for non-Members, because it doesn’t make sense from a business standpoint. Thanks, Josh, for your concern. Jerk.
Anyway, at least I can get a new quest from Kit on a daily basis. Plus, there are always new fairies to meet. I suppose I’m not the type that likes to sit around at the Tearoom and chat for extended periods of time, so socializing throughout Pixie Hollow isn’t really why I’m here. I want to earn badges, play games, and accept quests. I want to feel like an accepted member of the community. I want Pixie Hollow to be a home for any fairy, where everyone works together for the common good. Viva la Pixie Hollow!
