Candace' Request
Upon entering the Tailor Shop at 9.00, Candace will request that you give her a Blue Mist Flower, which can only be grown adequately in the Winter. Buy the seeds from Souffle Farm, and she will wait for you to grow, harvest and give her one of these flowers. The following conversation will take place:

Candace: "H-Hello... Well you see... um... Luna really wants a blue mist flower... I want to give her one as a gift, but I can't grow it, so... I... I don't know what to do."

Player: For best results: "You got it!" Nods

Candace: "What? You will, [Name]? ...Oh, but it... it's not too much trouble, is it?"

Player: (Blushes)

Candace: "Thank you very much. I'm sure Luna will be happy, too. I appreciate your effort." (Bows)


If you didn't do all of the requirements: Oh, a blue feather...?

If you met all requirements:
... That's... If you don't mind, let's go somewhere else.

(Screen fades to black)

This, this is the blue feather! It means... you're proposing!

Do you really want to marry me? Are you sure?

(nods head yes)

I don't think I deserve this... Are you really sure about this? I'm so happy. If this is a dream, I don't want to wake up!

Note: At first Candace was shy, but after the player married her she will be a lot more talkative and call him "Honey".


Model Child
The bundle of joy you get from marrying Candace will have very "proper" personality, often being serious and associating with people in a polite and formal manner. No matter it is a boy or girl, they will have glasses, wear green, and have brown hair and matching eyes. The boy's hair will be medium brown and neat with his fringe parted to the side, ending with a slight cowlick whilst the girl's hair will be light brown and pulled back into low-set pigtails and will have two stray parts of hair.

Her child is similar to Gill, Jin, and Anissa.


Some bachelor and bachelorette has a rival that the main character may have to compete with for marriage. These rivals have two events that can be triggered which will ultimately lead to them getting married and having a child together.

The rival for Candace' affection is Julius.

Rival Events

2-Heart Event
Befriend the person of your gender to 2 Hearts! The first rival event between Candace and Julius is at Waffle Town between 7:30 AM and 10:50 AM. Go inside the Tailor Shop and then come back outside. Julius tells Candace how they used to play, and Candace remembers him as the "mean girl" who used to bully her. Luna then comes and gets mad at Julius for this, since this is the reason why Candace is now very shy. Julius says that little boys usually tease the girls they like.

3-Heart Event
The second rival event between Candace and Julius is at Waffle Town between 7:30 AM and 10:50 AM. The rival must have three hearts. Julius questions Candace on why she never wears the clothes he gives her. Candace silently shakes her head and Julius interprets that she dislikes the clothes. He asks if she is still upset over their childhood and even though she denies this, he becomes upset and orders Candace not to touch him. Candace is shocked and runs off, as an angry Luna appears to defend her sister. Julius is in tears as he explains his actual motives; he was planning to propose to Candace all along. A blushing Candace overhears and all is well.

Rival Marriage
The main character arrives at the church and is instructed by the mayor to sit down along with other guests such as Luna, Shelly, Ramsey and Mira. Soon Candace and Julius are seen walking down the aisle together and Hamilton begins the marriage vows. Julius replied "But of course!" and Candace stutters "I... I do!" They then proceed to seal their marriage with a kiss and the event ends with the guests' congratulations.

Rival Child


After triggering the two rival events between Candace and Julius resulting in their marriage, the two of them will eventually end up with a daughter named Angie who is kind and has a good sense of fashion.
