Jamie’s Animals

What if the Goddess in MM got her purple hair from Jamie, and not the other way around?

…is it valid to assume that, as has been said of some legendary Pokémon, the Harvest Goddess is literally a legend come to life?

Across the series’s many worlds, “Goddess” is omnipresent — but is not necessarily the same entity with the same experiences and memories.  Why not?  Well, like nuanced differences of religions in real life, each village would have a different traditional image of her, and maybe her existence in each game reflects the given village’s respective legends.  …Of course this means that if no one believes at all, she will not exist at all.  (Cue Magical Melody.)

It also means that, with Alisa’s belief, I bet she could shoot lasers from her eyes if she tried hard enough.  Get with it, Goddess.  Live up to your believers’ image.

Concise version for my main, but this blog gets the unnecessarily elaborate rambles, heh.  Read more and it becomes about Jamie (obviously).

"When you collect five notes, they become a musical instrument!"

Protagonist’s canon instruments vs. Jamie’s headcanon instruments.

harmonica: western and angsty.  ocarina: traditional and mythical.  horn: rich and show-offy.  cymbals: constantly clashing.  bell: strong and clear, also farming-related, also related to helping the goddess in another game.  voice: …c’mon, you know you’d wanna hear Jamie sing; I bet it’s super pretty.

*sigh*  I was gonna try to do all nine instruments… but…

It’s hard since I don’t actually know anything about music, so…

jkdhfhssldhfusbg. Are you freaking serious right now.

AnWL/AWL:SE had foreshadowing for Magical Melody.

I’ve never played them, but I’m trying to work on my theory about Goddess canon and found this? There’s a series of events where these Sprites actually talk about having to bring back the Goddess by collecting something called “nices”???

“Do you believe me?”

 
//*cough* Believe me or not, I still don’t ship it.; I just love toying with the idea of Maria, as a religious character, being important to the plot. Why am I so fascinated by the idea of her being important? …Perhaps it’s my subconscious way of trying to erase my terrible karma for how I treated Maria back then…

Do you believe me?

-Last Hope-

  • "It is said that people lost the heart to believe and the Harvest Goddess disappeared. That’s a sad thing."
  • "Why are people unsatisfied unless they are trying to gain an advantage by improving their appearance or by looking down on others?"
  • "If everyone could be sincere and kind towards people, I think there would no longer be things like war in the world."
  • "Love heals people. Those who give love and those who receive… So many people can be happy."

…Hnggh. Everything Maria says is ridiculously relevant to a certain someone.

So much so that I find it really interesting to imagine how Jamie and Maria would get along if they ever actually interacted. …So much so that I wasted an absurd amount of time writing fanfic of an AU where the protagonist never comes to town and Jamie has to make friends with Maria to save the Goddess. The heck. The heck is wrong with me.

Anonymous asked: Calvervtutrp or whatever is actually a typo of something. It has to do with some version of the three-headed dog of the Underworld, Ceberus. (maybe)

megaevogardevoir:

hellyeahharvestmoon:

are you telling me that jamie named their dog cerberus

thats actually really awesome

but how the hell did it turn to calvervtutrp???/

 

OK WAIT I GOT THIS

 

In Japanese, Jamie’s dog’s name is

ケルベロス

ke-ru-be-ro-su

Kerberos.”

Indeed, that’s the Greek name for the mythological three-headed hellhound Cerberus, who guarded the gates of the underworld. A very appropriate namesake for a demonic-looking guard-dog.

 

Natsume could have easily just gone with “Cerberus” or “Kerberos,” but since the “b” and “v” sounds — as well as the “r” and “l” sounds — are rendered identically in katakana, another valid transliteration of it is “Calveros.”

 

Presumably, someone faceplanted on a keyboard while entering that.

Hence, Calvervtutrp.

 

In the Wii re-releases, the name was corrected to “Calveros,” letting players know that that’s what it was supposed to be.

 

…is what I’m pretty sure is the story.

 

This anon wasn’t me but I’m here to stake my claim as the obscure MM trivia master — dangit anon, how’d you know that, this is my thing! :P

Have you accepted the Goddess as your savior?

Maria has.

The Goddess’s Epilogue

I transcribed the original, very different Meek Heart scene in Japanese (freakin’ important) but somehow I left out the Goddess’s little epilogue.

Just for the record, here it is, and uh…I think she’s…saying something about “living forever”…? I can’t really tell if it’s something very profound about the immortal canon, or a joke about the game’s lack of a legitimate ending.
