So thus begins my second group hatch log! While I originally planned to just use my Angelgotchi and P2, I’m also going to log my V3 because the baby happened to be starting its life today. First off, these are the Tamagotchis I’m using:
For a little background, I got both that P2 and Tamagotchi Angel in the same lot, both missing their back covers. After a series of trial and error, I eventually found that the key to a successful back cover is one that had prongs. The material I used was an old plastic margarine container that was both flexible and sturdy enough. I made the Angelgotchi’s back cover today and decided to take the batteries out as I currently had the needy futagotenshi angels at 25 years (with pausing). I speculated on turning off the lights but it was more humane to remove the batteries.
At the time I was doing all this, the angels decided to take a walk which was quite fitting, yet a bit eerie because it was a walk they would never return from. It bears a similarity to an episode of the “Night Gallery” I watched where a woman ran after her dog into a mirror’s fantasy world and the mirror was then painted over, trapping her. Fancifully, I imagine my futagotenshi twins took a stroll in the sky and when they decide to walk back, they would begin search for their vessel, desperation mounting, only to realize that they are lost. If that stroll leads to heaven, they’ll likely sombrely conclude they have been abandon and begin the journey back to heaven, perhaps giving a pitying look over their shoulders and a mumbled prayer. But if that stroll does not lead to heaven, if the only way back to it was through that plastic vessel, then I have unwittingly trapped them in a world between worlds, a fate where there is no rest. Let’s hope for no vengeful spirits during this hatch...
As for my V3, it was my first Tamagotchi and from my childhood. I plan to reach 100 generations, but that’s a long way off.
Now schedule wise, my Angelgotchi and P2 will be logged till they depart while my V3 will be logged till she marries. I suspect both of them will stay nearly as long as each other as my V3 will marry Quiff, an oldie on my V4 (currently 20 years old). My plans for their evolutions is that my V3 will become and oldie, my Angel will become something other than the twins, and my P2 will follow the growth pattern of max discipline with average care. As for my logging frequency, I’ll log either every other day or every 3 days (recapping 2 days worth), depending on notable details.
So without further ado, lets get onto the logging!
I set the time on my vintage tamas to 3:04, changing the Angel’s time to p.m. as I accidentally set it to a.m. I liked the big, clear screens which seem to be easier to photograph. I planned to hatch my V3 later.
Eventually they hatched, moments away from each other, and I multitasked in filling up their happy meters (quite possible and I’m used to these versions enough that I can do it). I didn’t get a perfect game on the Angel because the pacing is different in the infant stages. I’ve worked out a system for the P2’s game due to my prior attempts, and it is working. I had forgotten how cute and tiny these versions are, especially the Angel. That angel can’t die in this stage so I decided to neglect her. I decided to name the P2 Hugo and the Angel Columbia :^)
I saw Hugo squished to the ground and then he rose, mouth open and leaving a mess. I went to clean it up but instead selected the game. Oddly, it was right beside him while he was playing... ew.
Soon later, Columbia beeped at me to be fed. I gave her a pie, but I speculated that I should have left her for a bit (cruel, but I don’t want the twins). At 3:40, Columbia completely emptied both meters. I decided to leave her to see what would happen. At 3:46, she beeped again and this time I filled her one on each meter. I felt like a mean governess at the time, a touch conflicted.
At 3:50, both vintages headed off to sleep and their sleeping sprites were cute. At 3:55, the woke up. At 3:59, Columbia beep at me with empty meters but I decided to wait, intervening when she beeped at 4:00 (perhaps she’s getting fed up with me). I looked over and saw Hugo was sick and after two shots, he went back to normal. Columbia beeped at me at 4:10 and I then intervened when she beeped three minutes later. At 4:15, both of them evolved into their toddler characters.
At 4:30, I paused both tamas, filing up on happy heart for Columbia.. I unpaused at 5:31 after lunch. I left Columbia 1 hour off to have her wake up at 9 tomorrow (when I’m supposed to get up). Unfortunately, Columbia ended up turning off accidentally and as vintage Tamagotchis don’t have a back up, I lost her. I didn’t see any problem with my design and the Tamagotchi came back on immediately. I decided to try again and set her time for 5:10, also naming her Columbia (two of my cats had the same first name, so why not?).
I later paused my brood (Hugo and my other 6 tamas) and I decided to take Columbia with me walking, which I generally never do because I’m afraid of accidents. I later unpaused everyone at 7:12. I kpet somewhat of an eye on Columbia while she was in my post. Turning the sound off really helped in neglecting her. Though it is the month of summer, it is still cool in Toronto, probably from all our rain.
At 7:19, Columbia evolved into a toddler and her meters were completely empty. I think Hugo went to bet at 8 while Columbia went to bet at 9. She sure was hardy, living of 0 AP, no happiness, and a hungry heart.
At 11:48 I hatch my V3 and named her Araz (not a bad made up name). We went through the baby stage late at night and she then became a Kuchitamatchi and headed off to sleep. In the morning, I got a group picture of them all as toddlers:
