Shit I almost forgot to post a preview of this upcoming chapter. Now, mind you, the Deep End is going to be a long one (I have a fun ton of notes written for it), but so far writing it has been… ok. But anyway, here’s this. Enjoy!
Considering the ongoing
heat wave, Gravity Falls’ public pool was quite crowded on its opening day.
Many of the townsfolk turned out for a day at pool to escape the heat. Blubbs
and Durland sunned themselves while fondly conversing with each other, while
Jenny and Kiki had a splash fight in the water with their father Kofi lay on a
raft between them, growing steadily more annoyed with their horseplay by the
second. Onion was up to his usual mischief as he mostly kept under the water
and stripping swimmers of their pocket change without being noticed while Toby
Determined flung his shirt off near the changing house, much to the recoil of
everyone nearby. Fortunately, the pool itself was generally large enough to
accommodate its many patrons with some room to spare, which was why the Pines,
Soos, the Gems, and Connie were hardly deterred from it as they arrived.
“Ah, the pool! A
sparkling oasis of summer enchantment!” Mabel exclaimed with a cheerful smile.
“Yeah, nothing like
sitting in a moist tub with strangers,” Stan deadpanned. “It’s like the bus,
“Oh come on, Mr. Pines,”
Steven quipped. “The pool is great! Can’t you just smell the excitement in the
“I think that’s just the
scent of chlorine and sun block,” Connie commented with a smirk.
Meanwhile, Dipper frowned
as he glanced over at the odd design on the towel Soos was carrying, to the
point that he eventually decided to question it. “Why would a sun need to wear
“It’s best not to think
about it,” Soos remarked blithely.
This terse response only
managed to confuse Dipper even more, but he simply shrugged it off and posed a
different question to the Gems instead. “So… where’s Pearl at?”
“Eh, she’s not coming,”
Amethyst replied. “She’s not a huge fan of ‘chlorinated water’ or something
like that. So she said she’s gonna spend the day cleaning the temple.
“Oh man, that reminds
me,” Steven spoke up, glancing over at the Gems. “You guys aren’t dressed for a
fun day at the pool! We need to get you some bathing suits and fast!”
“This calls for an
emergency shopping trip!” Mabel exclaimed excitedly. “Don’t worry, guys; I’ll
help you find the best summer poolside fashions this town has to offer. Now the
only question is, should we go with tankinis or one pieces…”
“I think we have this
covered, Mabel,” Garnet interrupted, holding her hands up as the gems on her
palms glowed. In a flash, her usual outfit changed into one that was much more
appropriate for the pool: a star-cut tank top with a short, side-swept black
skirt tied at her hip. Likewise, the gem on Amethyst’s chest shined as she
transformed her own clothing into a strappy top and shorts, along with a small
fanny pack around her waist and her hair tied into a high pony tail. Needless
to say the others were quite impressed with this ability upon seeing it, but
the two Gems hardly acted like it was anything new.
“So, are we finally ready
to start throwing things into this tiny lake?” Amethyst asked, flipping her
“Amethyst, that’s… not
what you’re supposed to do at a pool,” Dipper pointed out.
“What? That’s what I use
the pools in my room for,” the purple Gem frowned. “Then what do you do at this pool?”
“Um… swim?” Connie
“Seriously? You mean all
you guys do is just float around in that puddle and do nothing?” Amethyst
scoffed. “Throwing junk in it would be a lot more fun, right Garnet? …Garnet?”
The purple Gem got no response as she realized that the Gem leader had walked
off to claim a nearby pool chair, one that lay in full view of the sun. Garnet
did give the group a small nod for them to carry on as she reclined out on the
chair, the afternoon sun bouncing off her shades as she took the rare opportunity
to simply relax.
“Well, Garnet seems
happy,” Steven concluded with a contented grin. “But I hope she doesn’t get too
hot sitting in the sun like that.”
