Tom Nook by Leanne Su

FLAVOR NOTES: bright, citrusy, sweetVIBE NOTES: rich, comfy, smooth The first time I encountered Tom Nook was on a used copy of Wild World that I played on my 3DS under the name “Bob.” I didn’t mean to be a Bob–I’d never played video games and didn’t understand how save files worked, so when I … Read moreTom Nook by Leanne Su
