we're never gonna survive, unless we are a little crazy

Running the gauntlet again, currently at MilcaHolic. Noticed something I'd missed the first time out.


It's a freebie. It's a 0 Linden garbage bag. With PARTICLE FLIES.

Now, look, I'm all for realism on the grid. But I've noticed this creeping trend. About a year back, Tensai found rotting fish, and promptly bought them and installed them on the Steelhead docks. Roaches arrived a few months back. Then creeping rats. There's always been a tendency towards oil-drum fires and couches with exposed springs, and then the cardboard-box homes arrived.

Okay. It's all a matter of perspective. And we build what we're familiar with, that's true too. And I'm not a champion of neat, either, places I live get terribly cluttered--projects in progress, random boxes I'm filling with random objects for storage, furniture I'm trying out and haven't yet positioned, furniture I'm building, so it's in pieces and sections. Bits of hair I'm laying out. Skirt panels floating in midair.

I get all that.

But...garbage?!? Do we really need this?!?

Anyone? Because I'd love to know. Was this really necessary?!?

*Brings people to show them it*

Hehe, this is so gross (and funny)!

Is it better or worse because of the particle flies? I think worse...

Appropriate for decaying urban sprawls, such as Midian, which I was most familiar with. In Steelhead, though? Horrors!

Considering some of the freebie packages my inner magpie will not let me ignore, it seems entirely appropriate.

Seraph: True, I grant the point. And during Valruna's (second) rebuild, they did gain a lively (*shudder*) crop of roaches. So yes, I can see it.

Frau Lowey: My, every freebie on the grid is desired? Though, hmm, if you have group space...there's one with a similar heart, set up a group named Lucky Kitty, I think. Her name's Serenity Semple, if I got the group name wrong. All she does through there is advertise lucky chairs, freebies, scavenger hunts... :)
