And they called it puppy love
Oh, I guess they’ll never know
How a young heart really feels
And why I love her so
Hey hey hey! You know my friends, it’s been too long since I did one of these What a Wookiee Wants posts about future stuff and with the TSTO Holiday Event coming to a close, I thought it was high time. In the past, the snow thaws and the next event brings us Cupid and lots of stupid pink to TSTO. That’s right fellow Addicts, I’m talking about Valentine’s Day.
In past events we’ve seen different items and characters grace our Springfields but of course the thing we care about most is characters and buildings. We could explore different Valentine’s concept from the show and figure out what we’d like to see…
I went back and forth with what I’d like to see and then was inspired by reader dwsresin490. What TSTO needs is some Puppy Love. Also known as a simple infatuation, a crush, calf love, or kitten love, what I’m talking about is love interests for the kiddos. With this theme in mind, I decided to highlight possible interests for Bart and Lisa. First up… El Barto:
Becky – “Flaming Moe’s” (S3:E10) & “Summer of 4 Ft. 2” (S7:E25)
Laura Powers – “New Kid on the Block” (S4:E9)
Jessica Lovejoy – “Bart’s Girlfriend” (S6:E7)
Clara Stetson – “Dude, Where’s My Ranch?” (S14:E18)
Gina Vendetti – “The Wandering Juvie” (S15:E16)
Sherri and Terri’s cousin – “The Way We Weren’t” (S15:E20)
Darcy – “Little Big Girl” (S18:E12)
Mary Spuckler – “Apocalypse Cow” (S19:E17), “Moonshine River” (S24:E1), “Love is a Many Splintered Thing” (S24:E12)
Jenny – “The Good, the Sad and the Drugly” (S20:E17)
Nikki McKenna – “Stealing First Base” (S21:E15)
Melody Juniper – “Flaming Moe” (S22:E11)
Zhenya – “The Fabulous Faker Boy” (S24:E20)
Sherri, Terri, Shauna and Greta Wolfcastle have also been love interests. From this list, I could see them bringing in Jessica Lovejoy and her mom and doing a swell VD update. Of all of them though, I’d really love to see Mary Spuckler. I’ve said before I really think she is Bart’s one true love and I just like their interaction. Laura Powers could also be fun and maybe get a task to beat up that hussy Shauna.
Next up, Lisa’s love interests:
Langdon Alger – “Bart on the Road” (S7:E20)
Jesse Grass – “Lisa the Treehugger” (S12:E4)
Thelonius – “Trilogy of Error” (S12:E18)
Luke Stetson – “Dude, Where’s My Ranch?” (S14:E18)
Colin – “The Simpsons Movie”
Milhoose – “Boy Meets Curl” (S21:E12)
Nick – “The Daughter Also Rises” (S23:E13)
Lucas Bortner – “Lucas$” (S25:E17)
Of all of these boys, Colin is at the top of my list but Lucas is up there too. Alas, I think EA would show Bart puppy love first but I always root for Lisa even if it would make poor Milhouse sad to have another beau roaming my Springfield.
NOTE: For the above lists, I left out Jenda and Hugh Parkfield just because they’re future love interests. As we all learned in X-Men:Days of Future Past… the future is not set so there’s no guarantee of them and really they don’t make any sense in our TSTO.
Just to fill out this list of wants, Valentine’s Day could also finally give Milhouse some love. It’s always nice when things come out Milhouse (especially for us nerds) so how about Samantha Stankey showing up in TSTO?
Ultimately I’m just dreaming and only Jebus knows what EA has planned for us but those are some of my thoughts. Got anything special you want for Valentine’s Day? Any specific puppy love interest you’d like to see? Sound off below in the comments and stay classy.
TTFN… Wookiee out!
