Hey Hokies! I know you’re all super excited about your first
year in Blacksburg but maybe you’re a bit nervous and don’t quite know what’s
what just yet. Well luckily for you I am a rising sophomore with way too much
time on my hands so I constructed this little guide to hopefully help you guys
feel better about life at Tech.
I’m going to break this into sections for you:
So I know the first thing you’re
worried about is where you’ll be living. Unfortunately, the new cadet dorm
won’t be finished in time for this semester so that means we have a housing
shortage on campus. They are offering $2,000 to all upperclassmen to move off
campus just so they’ll have more room for you guys! This means that some of you
might be tripled or even placed in a lounge converted into a room (that
especially sucks because I don’t think you’ll have a sink then).
freshman year I lived in Lee hall which I would say is a pretty average. Some
are better (like the AJ’s) and some are worse (like Slusher). You’ll each be
given a closet, dresser, desk, desk chair, bed, and you’ll have one sink. The
sink and closets pretty much take up an entire wall so you essentially have 3
walls to work from. I recommend both of you at least half lofting your beds (I
full lofted mine and my roommate half lofted because she’s scared of heights).
This will give you more floor space and open up the room in general. Here’s
what my room looked like back in August before we fully decorated and it became
a total disaster.
As for roommates my number one tip
is to be honest with each other. My roommate and I have a ‘no shit’ policy
meaning that we’re both extremely honest with each other about any issues that
might come up. I regularly yell at her to take out her trash and she yells at
me to clean up under the sink. We are the only roommates I know that haven’t
gotten in some weird passive aggressive fight because we stick to being
straight up with each other. We’re rooming together this year too so clearly it
building itself won’t be bad either. In Lee the floors are separated by gender
but honestly living on a co-ed floor won’t be an issue either. I have seen boys
walking to the bathroom in just their towels and they have seen me doing the
same. Think back to those first couple of days in 7th grade when you
had to change for gym for the first time. Everyone was super self-conscious and
you changed in a bathroom stall so no one would know that you’re on your
period. Now think about the last day senior year when girls strutted around the
locker room in nothing but thongs and it wasn’t weird at all. That’s what
walking to the bathroom to take a shower will be like. It’ll be weird at first
but you’ll turn into that thong wearing senior in no time I promise.
Protip: They don’t clean the bathrooms on the weekends so if
it’s Sunday night wait until tomorrow to take that shower. Trust me.
RA is not some scary person out to get you! They’re actually the nicest people
in your building and if you’re cool to them they’ll be cool to you. If
something is bothering you in the building (roommate issues, gross bathrooms,
loud neighbors, broken elevator, etc.) they are the people to talk to. Contrary
to popular belief they’re not out to get you either. As long as you’re not
disturbing everyone around you and you’re not a danger to yourself or people
around you they most likely won’t write you up for being drunk. It’s only when
they see alcohol with their own eyes or you’re throwing up all over the place
that they HAVE to step in. I’ve gotten an RA to let me into my room at 3am
while I was visibly wasted and my roommate and friends waited in the bathroom
for the all clear and they didn’t care. Be responsible, respectful, and
coherent and they won’t write you up.
Protip: If an RA hears you throwing up in the bathroom they
HAVE to call an ambulance by law so if you have a little stomach bug (or
knocked back one too many drinks) your sink is your best friend.
going to write this section as if I was writing to my past self. I knew how to
play football and I regularly watched NFL games (fly Eagles fly!) but I didn’t
know people got so excited over college sports (I’m from the north I’m sorry!).
So here is your basic northern girl’s guide to Beamerball.
off this man,
Frank Beamer, is the most winningest active coach in college
football and if you don’t love him now you will by the end of the season. Hokie
football is regularly referred to as Beamerball because of his unique coaching
style. Personally, I love him most for the creation of the Fantastic Frank, but
that’s a story for the food section.
quarterback is Michael Brewer
He threw the most interceptions of any quarterback in all of
college football last season but he did beat Ohio State and he kind of looks
like Zac Efron so people have varying opinions about him. Apparently we just
got a freshman that will be a lot better than him so fingers crossed!
first game is going to be a bit insane because we were the only team to beat
Ohio State last season and you guessed it, we’re playing them first! Plus Sands
is giving us the next day off so if nothing else be excited over that!!
Lane Stadium… The side with the scoreboard is the North end zone aka the
student section. If you’re in the student section (which you want to be) expect
to never sit down. People have shirts that say “you can sit when you graduate”
and they mean it. This is the section that’s always on TV and is the representation
of our school. If you’re not going batshit crazy then are you really a student
here? In front of the students in this end zone is the Marching Virginians.
They have set songs for each situation on the field and you will know all of
them by heart by the end of the season. South end zone is home to the cadets
and their marching band (yes we have 2 marching bands). When we score they’ll
do pushups on the hands of other cadets. They get to wear fancy uniforms and is
probably the most fun they have all year to be honest. You will love the
you care about is being a good spectator, all you need to know is jump for
Enter Sandman, don’t sit, yell like crazy whenever the other team has the ball,
shake your keys on “key plays” (when the other team is on 3rd down),
every 1st down and touch down we get you will chant “H-O-K-I-E-S
Hokies!!”, Skipper (the cannon) will be fired every time we get a field goal or
touch down (don’t be scared it’s fun), and if you hear “LET’S GO!” you respond
by screaming “HOKIES!” at the top of your lungs. Also we love horses on
treadmills. Don’t ask just cheer.
they don’t do a good job at teaching you guys about this stuff. Basically the
bigger your plan is the more money you have to spend throughout the semester.
Everything is bought using that money. It is not a swipes per week system. If
you buy steak 24/7 you’re going to run out of money pretty dang quick but if
you live off of nothing but coffee you’ll have extra money left over at the end
of the semester. Everything is 50% off with the meal plan so that $10 steak
will only take $5 off of your meal plan. Every dining hall has these little
cards that tells you how much money you should have left by what date so you
can tell if you’re on track or if you should lay off the sushi for a couple
weeks. Try your hardest to stick by them. I get the smallest meal plan because
you can always add more at the end if you need it.
going to break down all of your food options by dining hall here so this
section may be a bit long.
it’s not the fanciest looking dining hall it still has amazing food. Here you
have stands for smoothies, sandwiches, locally grown organic food (closed on
the weekend), Chicken and mac and cheese, pasta, Chinese food, burgers, Mexican
food, “cheesesteaks” (I use the term very loosely), sweets, and a salad bar.
Personal favorites: Fantastic Franks from Frank’s Deli,
Buffalo chicken sandwiches from Flips, and of course chicken parm from the
pasta place (this is a special and is only offered every other Wednesday and
Friday. People actually go nuts for it I once waited a half hour for it and I
have zero regrets).
Warnings: I’m from South Jersey and let me tell you that
“Philly style steak sandwich” is NOT a cheesesteak. If any variation of a
cheesesteak has the word “Philly” before it do yourself a favor and don’t get
it. I could go on an entire rant about how bad this “cheesesteak” was but let’s
just leave it at I almost threw up and I became very homesick and craved the
real thing for 3 months until I finally went home and got a real cheesesteak.
No one should try it but if you’re from the Delaware Valley I’m sorry but you
can kiss cheesesteaks and Wawa goodbye for as long as you’re in town.
to Owens is Hokie Grill. There’s not much to say about this place. There’s a
Chick Fil A, bbq place, Pizza Hut, and Dunkin Doughnuts. Protip: doughnuts are
only 49 cents on the meal plan.
was the world’s first pay for what you get dining hall in the world and is what
earned us the #1 spot in food. Here you can get burgers, sandwiches, wraps,
steak and lobster, salads, sweets, smoothies, pizza and pasta.
Personal favorites: Steak from JP’s, chicken Cesar wrap from
Wrap World (best bargain on campus if you ask me), hot wings from the Fighting
Gobbler, and the Cajun cream sauce special at the pasta place.
Warnings: Super crowded from 5:30-7pm. Go early or late if
you don’t want to wait ages for your food.
the only all you can eat dining hall on campus. Because of that it’s a bit more
on the pricier side. Don’t go here unless you’re really going to get your
money’s worth. Definitely go here if it’s a themed day (CHOCOLATE DAY IS A REAL
THING AND IT’S GLORIOUS) and be sure to stop by at least once for Sunday brunch
(which lasts until 3pm).
Personal favorites: Everything on chocolate day, eggs
benedict on Sunday brunches at the Chinese place.
Warnings: This is probably the worst dining hall on campus
which means it has pretty good food. If this is your worst food than you are in
the right place my friend.
on the first floor of D2 is Dx. Basically take a crappier version of Wawa and
shove it into a hallway and make all the customers drunk and you’ll have Dx.
Since it is the only food option on campus after midnight (it closes at 2am) it
is a popular place to go after a night out. You will find yourself stumbling
through here at one point.
Personal favorites: Corndog nuggets and the butterscotch
pudding with Heath bar crumbles.
Warnings: The sushi is gross and a lot of people get sick
from the food here (I never have so I don’t know what their problem is).
Basically this is what normal schools have as their actual food and this is
your crappy late night place so be happy.
whole building is basically all dining halls. Deet’s is your typical little
coffee shop. They have ice cream, coffee, baked goods, and even paninis. It’s
open until midnight and there are lots of chairs so I usually find myself there
late at night working on group projects with people.
Personal Favorites: Blacksburg sunset (get lemonade for
sour, sprite for sweeter) and the southwest chicken panini.
Warnings: No outlets for your computer so come charged up if
you plan on staying awhile.
mainly the student center Squires still houses Burger 37 and ABP. It’s all a
bit pricier but it’s on the meal plan and you won’t find a better burger or
milkshake on campus.
Personal favorites: B7 burger and the chipotle mayo for the
fries at Burger 37, free refills of lemonade at ABP.
Warnings: Super crowded most of the time but worth it.
The only dining hall on the
academic side of campus! It’s closed on the weekends but here you can get
bagels, convenient store stuff, coffee, crepes (crepe guy is super attractive),
sushi, hibachi, salads, Qdoba, southern fare, steak and fish, smoothies, and
pizza. Check out the cadet room on the first floor it’s one of my favorite
places to study.
Personal Favorites: Beef at the hibachi place (only at
lunch), custom salad at the salad place, taco salads at Qdoba, and salmon from
Warnings: closed on the weekends and always packed between
part you all hate: actual learning. This is more going to be little tips and
tricks than anything since I don’t know your major. I am majoring in Mechanical
engineering with a minor in Biomedical engineering so if you happen to be doing
one of those feel free to ask me about more specific questions!
don’t be afraid to go to office hours! Your teacher will help you I promise and
sometimes they’ll even give you little tips or benefits that won’t be offered
to other students. I’ve gotten extensions, extra credit, news before everyone
else, and candy just from dropping by my teacher’s offices. Trust me it’s worth
it and a whole lot better than failing and feeling alone.
work as soon as you can. Life happens and you will have unexpected events come
up that you didn’t plan for. Would you rather fall to just 4 days ahead of
schedule and go out and play bumper soccer with your friends or stay up until
3am doing that chem lab you haven’t looked at since lab day? You will have so
much more fun (and sleep!) by staying on top of your work.
your next semester schedule early. Look up your proposed degree path and see
what you should take in the spring. Go to Hokie Spa and sift through the
timetable of classes for the spring until you’ve found that perfect schedule
and request those classes. When you don’t get any of the classes you requested,
use coursepickle to tell you when the classes you want are open and get your
perfect schedule. Protip: schedule free time for 8am and never be scheduled an
8am ever again!
is the most important if you ask me. Classes are one thing but being a part of
the Hokie nation is another. Every year in September we have this thing called
Gobblerfest which is basically this event where almost every club on campus
comes out to the drillfield and tells you information about their club. This is
a great time to explore your interests and find where you belong at school.
Thanks to Gobblerfest I’m now a sister of a sorority, on a design team, public
relations officer of the Undergraduate Biomedical Engineering Society, and vice
president of Engineering World Health (and all of this in one year!). I met
some of my best friends from these clubs. If nothing else you’ll get tons of
free things at Gobblerfest (all of the sunglasses I own are from this event) so
make sure you go and check out clubs!
clubs aren’t the only way to get involved. In the spring Tech has The Big
Event, the largest collegiate Relay for Life in the world, the 3.2 for 32, and
so much more. Get a group of friends together and spend you weekends helping
people and having fun. You don’t have to commit to a club, just one day. It’s a
lot of fun and I promise you you’ll come out feeling like you were really a
part of something bigger than yourself.
freshman you’re guaranteed campus housing. But what is campus like? Are there
traditions I’m not aware of? Are there shortcuts to places I’m not aware of?
Don’t worry! I’ll break it all down for you here!
point you probably have seen the drillfield and know the two distinct features
in front of Burruss and Torg Bridge.
The pylons each represent Virginia
Tech’s principles. In the center sits a cenotaph, DO NOT TOUCH THIS!!! The
cenotaph is there representing all of the Hokies who have received a purple
heart. We don’t touch it as a sign of respect to them. If you see someone
touching it (or using it like a coffee table like I once saw) kindly tell that
person why we don’t touch it. Hokie respect people.
the April 16th memorial. After the shooting that took place on April
16th, 2007 a group of students were sitting on the drillfield
wondering how they could honor their fallen Hokies. They decided to go to the
quarry and take 32 Hokie stones (one for each live lost) and place them in a
semicircle in front of Burruss. These makeshift stones were eventually given to
the families of the victims and were replaced with today’s Hokie stones (which
have each of their names engraved into them). Every April 16th a
memorial service is held here and cadets guard each stone with pride. It is
easily the prettiest place on campus during that week.
tradition occurs on the first snowfall of every year. The cadets vs. civilians
snowball fight happens on the drillfield and is easily the most epic snowball
fight you’ll ever be a part of. Last year I saw people with lab googles,
Captain America shields, American flags, and even the Hokiebird took part in
it! Keep a look out on Facebook when it snows because that’s where the date and
time will be announced.
every class at Virginia Tech creates their own class rings. After the rings are
given out there is a huge dance to celebrate it. It’s kind of like the college
version of prom except you’ll actually have fun at this dance.
the Military Ball takes place every year. Cadets HAVE to bring a date so get
out there and find a cadet to dance the night away with!
you know some of the traditions on campus but how do you get around easily?
Well you can’t go wrong with walking. If you have a crazy schedule like me and
you need to go to Litton Reaves to Randolf in 15mins (good planning on my part
I know) you might want to invest in a nice bike. Make sure you register it!
It’s free and it will stop you from getting a ticket with VT parking services
or will help VTPD track down your bike if something happens to it. If bikes
aren’t your style I’ve seen people on skateboards, longboards, scooters,
unicycles, tricycles, you name it. If you plan on bringing your car make sure
you get a parking pass and be careful where you park! Getting a parking ticket
is on the Hokie bucket list because it happens so often. When in doubt don’t
need to go off campus Blacksburg Transit is your best friend. Download the BT4U
app to see which bus will take you where and at what time. Below is a list of
places I went to often and which bus will take you there. I know it’s scary at
first. (Note: there are 2 Krogers in Blacksburg. “Ghetto” refers to the
smaller, older one next to the math empo; “Gucci’ refers to the bigger, newer
one on South Main (no I didn’t make these nicknames up.))
Ghetto Kroger, Math Empo, the “mall” (like 4 stores and the empo lol), Panera
Bread, Wells Fargo, Starbucks, and Macado’s.
Literally all the same places as U Mall you might just have to walk like 3 feet
South Main- Gucci
Kroger, Cookout, Our Daily Bread, and downtown (if you’re super lazy).
Two Town Trolley-
CHRISTIANSBURG, Walmart, the hospital (only on week days), the Christiansburg
mall (aka the closest thing to civilization you’re going to get down here), and
I hope this whole thing helped someone out there and I can’t
wait to see you all in Blacksburg in just a couple weeks!
Summary: A trip to London was an opportunity you did not want to pass up. Fortunately and unfortunately, you didn’t see much of London. Then again, what was any city compared to that of the land of dreams, Neverland.
Word Count: 2223
London was an amazing place. You were… some young age that you don’t remember anymore when your school offered a summer trip to London. The sights were breathtaking. The culture, wonderful. The city, inspiring.
You and the other participants were staying in an old corner house in Bloomsbury. The house was abandoned after World War II. The family probably went to the countryside. Because of this, the government used it to house foreign students. It was a brilliant opportunity and a beautiful house. Your bedroom, shared with two other girls, was your favorite room. Mostly because there was a beautiful window seat where you could peacefully watch the stars.
You sighed. “Yes, Miss?”
“Close that window. You don’t want to let the wind in and ruin that new lavender dress of yours.”
You turned around and faced your teacher. “Can’t we leave it a crack open?”
“Why would you request such a thing?”
You crawled into your bed and tucked yourself in. “I want to see the clear sky.”
“Tell you what. I’ll close it, but I won’t lock it. Would you be ok with that?”
You nodded. “Thank you.” You closed your eyes and fell into a peaceful sleep.
The clock struck midnight.
Someone pushed the window open. It wasn’t you. It wasn’t your teacher. It was someone with a hook for a hand. “This is it,” he whispered to his pirate crew. “That Jane girl must be here somewhere.”
A short, pudgy man with gray hair pointed at your roommate. “What about his one here, Cap’n?”
Hook-for-hand took one look at her and scoffed. “Smee, tell me. What is she wearing?”
“Uh… Uh… White, Cap’n!”
“And Jane wears…”
Hook spoke slowly. “Then, find the girl. Who. Wears. Purple!”
“I found ‘er, Cap’n!”
“Right here.” The pirate pointed at your sleeping figure.
Hook’s lips curled into a devious smile. “Oh, Jane. Wake up. Someone’s back to see you.”
You heard something. But it was so far away, like you were underwater. You blinked, waking yourself up. “What is it?”
You gasped. Pirates! One with a sharp hook where his hand should be and several other shadows behind him.
Then, everything went black.
Next thing you know, you were on a beach. Tied to an anchor. You looked around frantically. Where were you? What had happened while you were asleep? While you were… You were knocked out!
“Hey!” you shouted. “Hey! Someone!”
“Shut your trap, Jane!” someone shouted.
“Jane?” You shook your head. “There must be a mistake. I’m not Jane!”
“Well, if you aren’t Jane, then why ya here?”
You groaned. these pirates were not that bright.
“He’s here! Pan’s here!”
The whole beach erupted.
That man with a hook for a hand sauntered up to you. “Well, Jane, I hope you learn your lesson.”
“I’m not Jane,” you explained. “So, if you don’t mind.” You pulled against the ropes.
“That won’t work, Jane. You have to be her.”
“And why’s that?”
He smirked. “Why, only Jane wears purple.”
You blinked. “I’m dreaming. That’s what’s going on. I am dreaming. Dreaming of dumb pirates, beautiful beaches, and a crow cawing.”
The pirate’s face fell. “A crow?”
“You don’t hear it?”
The caw of a crow echoed throughout the island.
“That crow,” you explained with a laugh.
The captain growled. “Put a bag over her. I don’t like Jane’s voice.”
“I’m not Jane!”
Someone pulled a bag over your head. You tried to get it off yourself, rubbing your head against the anchor and shrinking. However, it didn’t do much.
“Come at me, Codfish!” A boy, you knew. “Come on, boys! I’ve seen a walking fish!”
Laughter. Kid’s laughter.
“Good one, Peter!”
“Ha! A walking fish!”
Then, Hook’s voice cut through the boys’ laughter. “Oh, Peter! We found some treasure for you.”
“And you wanna share? How nice! What is it?”
“A certain…” You could practically hear the old pirate smirk. “Lost Girl?”
“Jane? Let her go now, Hook!”
There was cheering of boys. There was shouting of pirates. There was clanging of swords.
Suddenly, you were lifted into the air.
You did what any normal girl would do. You screamed.
“Calm down, Lost Girl! It’s Peter.”
Light flooded your vision. You squirmed and tried your best to escape your captor.
Then, he gasped. And the arms that held you disappeared.
You screamed, feeling your stomach drop and air hit every part of your body. The ocean was beneath you. That was it. You were going to wake up, and you were going to be in your bed.
But, nothing happened. Arms engulfed you again. “Gotcha!”
With no distractions, you were finally able to open your eyes. Light blinded you once again, but then… It started to come into focus. A boy. A boy with reddish hair and brown eyes. Pointy ears?
“You’re not Jane.”
You laughed. “I know. And you’re not real.”
“Not real?” The boy seemed to take a second to ponder this. “You sure sound like the old Jane!” He laughed and set you down on the beach. “So, old Jane, how’d you like to get a tour of Neverland from Peter Pan himself?”
He threw out his arms and jumped off the rock, flying and circling in the air.
It almost made you dizzy. “Neverland? Why would I name this place Neverland?”
“Ha!” He zoomed in close to you so that his nose was just touching yours. “You’re funny, Ole Jane.”
You swatted him away from you. “My name’s not Jane. I’m (Y/n), (Y/n) (Y/l/n).”
Peter tilted his head and crossed his legs as if he was sitting in the sky. “That’s a funny name, (Y/n) (Y/n).”
You opened your mouth to correct him, but the boy seemed very proud of himself for listening to you. You had another question anyway. “How are you doing that?”
“You don’t know how to fly?” Peter Pan exclaimed. “It’s so easy! Easier than pie!”
You crossed your arms and teased, “Well if it’s so easy, why don’t you teach me?”
“Great idea, Old Jane!”
“I told you my name’s-”
Peter grabbed your hand and threw you on his back. “Come on! We’ve got a lot to do before it gets dark!”
You squealed and held on tightly. You closed your eyes, feeling the wind whip your dress carelessly. Your stomach must’ve dropped several feet, because you felt the need to scream and hold on even tighter.
“Careful, girlie. You don’t wanna strangle your knight in shining armor.”
“Who said I needed one!” you screamed into his shirt.
“Sorry, can’t hear you! You can thank me when we land!”
You wanted to scoff, but the emptiness in your stomach prevented you from doing so.
Suddenly, the boy started speaking, but not to you. It was followed by a jingling of bells. “Hey, Tink. What are you talking about? (Y/n) loves flying! See- oh.”
The wind stopped.
“(Y/n)… you ok?”
You opened one eye slowly. Peter Pan was staring at you, worry shining in his eyes.
You gasped. The worry in his eyes was so overwhelming. You’ve never seen anyone look at anyone like how he was gazing at you. This couldn’t be a dream. If you’ve never seen that look, how could you ever dream it?
You blinked. “Just a bit… dizzy. I’ve never flown before.”
Peter’s sad frown and worried eyes immediately changed to an expression of childish hope and joy. “Well, in order to get over the fear of flying, you need to fly. It’s simple, really. Faith, trust, and pixie dust. that’s all you need. That’s why Tink is here to help!”
A ball of light appeared next to him. You blinked and used one hand to rub your eyes. It wasn’t just a ball of light. It was a person! … A tiny person with wings. “A fairy?” You gasped.
Peter laughed. “You look as if you’ve never seen one before.” He turned to the little lady, fairy, and instructed, “Let ‘er rip, Tink!”
Tinker Bell zoomed right to you and stopped in front of your eyes. She was beautiful and seemingly angry. Then, she jingled. and looked at Peter.
“Come on, Tinker Bell. Or I might just have to shake you.”
Tinker Belle huffed. She spun around above your head, showering you with pixie dust. She wasn’t stopping any time soon.
“That’s enough, Tink,” Peter laughed.
Tinker Bell narrowed her eyes and threw another ball of pixie dust at your head.
You closed your eyes and tried to wipe off all the excess dust on your face.
Peter smiled. “Now, think of a happy thought.”
“A happy thought?”
“Any happy thought! For Wendy, it was Mermaid Lagoon. John, the pirate’s cave. And Michael thought of being an Indian Brave.”
You tilted your head and closed your eyes. Your happiest thought made you smile. “Ok, I think I have it.”
Peter smiled. “Then, let go.”
“Let go, or I’ll do it for you,” he taunted.
Too late. He let you go.
You closed your eyes. Fear gutted you, and there was no air in your lungs.
Peter sputtered out a laugh. “Open your eyes, girlie.”
You slowly but surely did. You were flying! You were floating! All on your own!
You laughed and spun in the air. It felt so freeing. You didn’t have to rely on the ground. it was just you and the open sky. “Woohoo!”, you sang out, turning and twisting through the air.
Peter was beside you, laughing. “There you go, (Y/n)! That’s how you fly!”
You smiled. Then, you smirked. “Bet you can’t catch me.”
Peter blinked, obviously surprised by your challenge. Then, he smiled. “Ha! You think you can beat me? I am, clearly, the more experienced one.” He laid down on the air, placing his arms behind his head.
You stopped, propped your head on your hands, and rested your hands on Peter’s chest. “Well, scaredy-cat, are you saying no race?”
Peter’s jaw dropped. He flew out from under and flexed his muscles. “You are talking to Little Flying Eagle here. And Little Flying Eagle never backs down!”
“Then…” You bit your lip. “Let’s fly!” You sped off with your arms outstretched and a smile on your face.
“Hey!” Peter complained. He flew after you.
You, to be honest, forgot about the race. You were just flying, soaring over the island of Neverland. You flew through rainbows and bounced on cotton candy clouds. You touched the clear blue waters and danced under the snow clouds.
In all the fun you were having, you didn’t notice the Indian’s totem pole in front of you.
You gasped. You stared right into the face of a colorful bear. And Peter was behind you, one hand on your hip and the other holding your shoulder. His chest was not touching your back. It was close enough, however, that you could feel the heat coming from his body and his chest moving up and down as he breathed.
“Thanks,” you muttered, out of breath.
“No problem, (Y/n).”
Suddenly, Tinker Bell appeared beside the two of you. She pulled you away from Peter and floated in front of him, jingling frantically.
“Woah, Tink. The boys? Nearing sunset? Already?” Peter tilted his head and stared at the sun. “Oh.” He faced the fairy again. “Lost track of time, then. But, we can still get back in time!” He pulled your arm and flew. “Come on!”
Nights turned into moons. Soon, you had forgotten about London. About your old house. You lived in Neverland, the land of dreams. You had a family. You were a mother, a sister. And soon…
“You’ve earned it.” Peter hands you a lion’s hood. “Lost Girl.”
You blinked. You reached out to touch it, then you hesitated. “Really, Peter? Ya mean it?”
“Of course I do!” He beamed and insisted. “You’re one of us now, (Y/n).”
The Lost Boys cheered and jumped off the walls.
You laughed as one of the twins jumped on you. You held onto him and threw your head back with a joyful cry. “I’m a Lost Girl, boys!” You took the hood from Peter and ut it over your head. “Now, let’s go on an adventure!” You pulled out your machete and cheered with the boys.
Peter smiled. He flew above all of you. “Tink, let’s go!”
TinkerBell zoomed out of her room. She smiled at you, hitting you with her signature pixie dust ball before sprinkling the boys with the magical dust.
“You’ll pay for that, Tinker Bell!” you joked.
Tinker Bell just smirked and floated above your shoulder.
Peter raised his dagger. “All right, Lost Boys.” He bowed to you. “And Girl. Let’s go find some fun!”
“Yeah!” you all answered back with a cheer. The boys flew out first. Peter stayed behind and stared at you. “You coming, girlie?”
You floated to him. “Of course, I am. I am a Lost Girl after all.”
Peter laughed. “Then, Lost Girl, it would be an honor,” he bowed low and held out his hand, “to aid you in your next trip.”
You grinned. “Why, the pleasure’s all mine, Boy.” With that, You accepted his outstretched hand, and the two of you soared into the Neverland sky, looking for a new adventure.
Hello, everyone! Hope you like this one. I made it extra long because Peter Pan from Disney doesn’t have many imagines. All he has is fanfics about Wendy. A few with Jane. I think I found one with reader, but that’s one. It wasn’t even on tumblr. But, I hope this can be good enough to represent!
Have a great night everyone! Now, I need to catch up on math… Wish me luck!
