TABLE OF CONTENTS
Hello and welcome to Iris Cove! The locals have been eagerly awaiting your arrival. You probably aren’t used to viewing everything in our rainbow-coloured vision, so to help you to see the world from our perspective, I would like to give you a grand tour of our island. Let’s get started!
Starting at the docks, you’ll notice some beautiful sailboats with various coloured sails that are designed after the lesbian, gay, asexual, and transgender flags. Their sails are strong and help them weather any storm. However, in case any of the boats get lost, the lighthouse in the distance helps guide these pride-themed boats back home to Iris Cove where they bring their wares to the marketplace.
If you stick around long enough by the docks, you might find an old sailor surrounded by children, telling the tale of how they thought they were doomed to die to the murderous storms and the monstrous sea, yet somehow the sails stayed strong and true, with the lighthouse in the distance to guide them home. The vendors in the marketplace roll their eyes at the sailors’ anecdotes, but the seamen will tell you that those folks have never set foot offshore. But regardless of their seafaring history, these vendors have plenty to offer! Their multi-colored stalls sell all sorts of souvenirs you’ll have to buy, and as this is Iris Cove, they specialise in pride-themed goods!
Also located in the marketplace is Iris Cove’s very own Vixen Van Gogh. This year, Vixen Van Gogh is teaching students how to paint. If you’re interested in taking one of his classes, you should stop by the rainbow-coloured stall. I heard that he is also looking for an assistant to help him make preparations for class. Be sure to check him out. Fun fact: he’s colour-blind!
When Van Gogh isn’t teaching others how to paint, he helps with maintaining our glorious, vibrantly-coloured town statue, the crown jewel of the island located in the centre of town. You will notice that the statue is wearing a stunning cloth rainbow, woven together by the community. This statue is our pride and joy. It represents our harmony and solidarity as a community. I bet you wish Hogsworth had a statue like this one! Unfortunately, the only way this statue is going home with you is through photos and memories.
Other things you might notice about the island include the rainbow-coloured houses. Each colour represents a different housing district. Starting with red on the left, the houses and shops there represent the gardening district. You can find all sorts of blooming flowers and fruit-bearing trees there. The orange district is the artistic district. You will find all sorts of paintings, drawings, and artists there. The yellow district is the baking district. The island’s best bakery is located here. The green district is the gaming and arcade district; I highly recommend checking out the Whack-A-Mole there. Last, but certainly not least, the blue district is the fashion district. Iris Cove has exclusive, high-quality fashion that you cannot get anywhere else. Stop by and take a peek to see what’s in store!
Also, keep an eye out for some hidden fairies and lemons. They are located all over the island and mean something special to some of the shopkeepers here. If you find one, take note of its location! It may just be useful later on.
I hope you have fun visiting Iris Cove. Go have your own island adventure. In the meantime, have a pride-tastic day!
