Sven and I have been together for over two years. We’ve been to Flipside together twice and really enjoyed our time together there. But. Sven doesn’t camp with me. Because, Sven is a car. And cars camp in parking, not in the city.
Sven’s job is to get me there safely and while some other cars will get dressed up for the event, Sven is demure, and doesn’t like costumes. Sven is no mutant vehicle. So Sven spends the event with the other cars not dressed for the event, in parking. He tells me that he has fun in parking, and enjoys the companionship of the other cars (Sven spends a lot of time at home alone with my junk in the garage).
If there ever comes a time where I need Sven to camp in at Flipside, I know that he will appreciate being off the road, and covered. Maybe even in something decorative. Because, although Sven is shy and reserved, he knows that we are in this together and he will take one for Pyropolis and wear a costume, for me. For us.
Because this city we build is not like other cities, where all the cars hangout in front of the houses. This city is for people. It’s for art. It’s for the Flipiziens. It’s for leaving the real world for something better. There’s just not enough room for shy and reserved cars in our city, when we want to fill it with awesome.
Cars camp in Parking. People camp in Pyropolis.
