Okay, so because I absolutely love the color au created by the wonderful @mooksmookin, i felt the need to draw the scenes where Oikawa helps Hinata escape as well as the park scene described in this ask. But, I may have gone a little… overboard and ended up making a mini comic. I hope that’s okay. 〳 •́ ﹏ •̀ )
So anyway, hopefully the little time skip wasn’t too confusing/choppy, and please ignore the awful backgrounds–especially the ugly trees (i tried).
You can slow things down. Take a walk without your phone, go swimming, wade, climb a tree, balance a glass of water on your head, collect wood, carry water, read a book, hold a rock and feel it’s shape, breathe, listen to the wind, watch the moon, feel an itch on your body and let it just be itchy, fold your clothes, breathe some more. How do you slow things down? This is all a reminder for myself.
Gryffindor is wearing bright red oversized sweaters and trying new makeup styles for the new season. It’s thrusting a stick into the ashes of a fire then taking it out and using the red hot ends to draw on the black sky. Gryffindor is going on spontaneous adventures deep into the woods where the leaves are beautiful shades of red and orange and yellow. It’s staying out so late that your nose and fingers turn to ice. Gryffindor is the ashes that float above the blazing fire and the changing leaves and the spirit of festivity that awakens with autumn.
Ravenclaw is wearing beanies and sweaters the minute it’s cold enough outside. It’s sitting out on a frosty morning with a cup of hot chocolate in one hand and a good book in the other. Ravenclaw is sharing random facts about Thanksgiving and Halloween and why the leaves change colors and fall off. It’s taking a long car trip down a rural rode and daydreaming as colorful trees zip past your window. Ravenclaw is the crisp morning air and the dew on the grass and the birds flying across the painted sky to escape winter.
Hufflepuff is making a giant pile of leaves, only to end up jumping in it. It’s baking pumpkin pie and making hot chocolate with your friends. Hufflepuff is carving pumpkins and laughing when it turns out looking terrible. It’s excitedly changing out your summer wardrobe for your autumn one. Hufflepuff is the first harvest that comes with fall and and huddling close to your friends when it’s cold out and the renewed spirit of friendship and festivity that comes with the new season.
Slytherin is becoming way too excited for Halloween on the first day of October. It’s sitting by a gurgling brook and just listening. Slytherin is wearing your favorite boots and rejoicing because it’s finally cold enough to wear them. It’s watching as the very last leaf drifts from the old tree in your backyard. Slytherin is the earlier nights and the deep, winding forests and strange feeling that somehow everything will work out.
it’s almost time to take down that tree. and not just cause christmas is over and it’s almost the new year. but because as you’ve been laughing and singing and present opening and couch lounging all around that tree, the trees have been doing something as well: plotting. to take over. to usurp you in your kitchen throne. to eat your breakfasts. yes they’ve been watching. every morning watching you eat delicious foods, never offering the tree any. just water. just plain’ old water tossed at the tree’s knobby feet. how disrespectful. so take ‘em out. they’re close. i mean, you already let them inside your home…
