Episode One - Part One

Three weeks had gone by and the shock of her grandfather's death had only just started to lift, making way for the pain that would sneak up when least expected. A phone call from an old friend had given Emily the chance to start again, even further away now than before. It seemed like such a strange name for a town- Deception Pass. There was a foreboding to it, a weighted feeling in the predawn air.


As she stepped off the train she felt a whisper of familiarity- she'd been here once before, many years ago now, and the town had grown considerably in that time. Change is inevitable- even things you count on as constants often fluctuate with such subtlety that you aren't aware anything has happened until the difference is so profound you no longer recognize where you are or how you got there.

Emily: "Mary?"

Mary: "Emily! I'm so glad you made it! How was the trip?"

Emily: "I've had better, but I've also had worse."
Mary: "Did you get any sleep at all?"
Emily: "I tried, but these girls kept running around giggling like it was going out of fashion or something. I dunno, maybe I'm just getting old."

Mary: "Heh, kids these days, eh? C'mon, let's go get your luggage and get you home so you can get some rest. My big debut art show's tomorrow and I'd love to have you there for moral support."

Emily: "Don't worry, I haven't forgotten! How could I pass up a chance to wear something fancy and rub elbows with the who's who of the art world?"
Mary: "Who's Who indeed. I still can't believe I got singled out for my own solo show!"

Mary: "You know I haven't even met the guy who put everything together? He's supposed to be the richest person in Deception Pass- apparently he owns the gallery, the studio I work out of... hell just about every other building in town I'd guess!"

Emily: "Is this the same guy who owns the photo studio you mentioned?"
Mary: "As a matter of fact, it is."


Mary: "Oh. My. GOD! I cannot believe it!"

James: "Hello ladies! I'm really surprised you recognized me. You know, it's always nice to meet a fan, no matter.... hey!"

Mary: "I can't believe they have triple death chocolate ice cream bars at the train station!"

James: "Hold up... Triple death chocolate ice cream? You seriously don't know who I am?"

Mary: "No... Should I?"
James: "I'm James Selwyn..."
Mary: "...not ringing any bells, sorry. Did we go to school together? It's been a few years, but I think I'd remember someone like you."

James: "James Selwyn! This Velvet Oblivion...? C'mon!"

Mary: "You can keep repeating your name to me as much as you want, I'm not going to suddenly know who you are. Drop it, ok?"
James: "Jesus, lady... sorry. Didn't know it would upset you so mu-"
Mary: "Wow, you're really something else, you know that?"

Andy: "James, Tristan!"

James: "Andy!"
Andy: "Let's get going, boys. I've got a car waiting around back for us. I trust you had a restful trip?"
James: "We did indeed."

Emily: "Well that was... different."

Mary: "Sorry about that, Em. Are you ready? My car's parked out front."

Thanks!

I made the guy's hair myself, and Em's shoes can with the outfit which I downloaded from http://artemistha.moonfruit.com/ I *think*. It may have come from http://simderz.moonfruit.com. ^_^

I love it, well done! I can't wait for the rest of the story so I think I may have to friend you too :-)

Beautiful setting, clothes, hair, beautiful everything (I do wish you would upload the guys' hair somewhere though, it's simply wonderful!). Please keep the story going for a long long time, it's really nice to read something with so much detail into everything.

Look for train/bus station under community lots- they did an amazing job. It's the only building in the story that I didn't do myself.

Do you happen to be Dutch? The traininformation boards on image 8 and the NS logo on one of the previous images is amazing! XD ahahah.

I'm really sorry to harass you with the following question,since I already asked you a similar one before : but is there any slight chance you remember where you got it from? :) As a Dutch girl I feel that it is obligatory to have it, hahahaa.

And your story seems really nice, great job on the buildings and everything! :o

No, I'm not Dutch, but the person who made the lot must have been! I got it from MTS2 AGES ago... Check under community lots! :D

(And the story gets much much much better...)
