camp shoes

I was planning to do a non-GF request today but then I had a bit of a rough day, so I felt like I needed some baby Stans in my life. Hope you like it! :)

ok but consider this:

  • aph kids that feel overwhelming surges of love randomly and start hugging people bc “gdi you’ve been my friend for like two days youre such a great person???”
  • aph kids with no personal space whatsoever and sometimes kiss people in a completely platonic way and their friends are left wondering what the fuck just happened
  • aph kids that are bitter about love!!!!! self contradicting demigods gdi!!!!!
  • ones that embody all the marina and the diamonds songs ALL OF THEM
  • ones that embody all the taylor swift songs oh my god
  • ones that are amazing with make up like what the fuck eyeliner game too strong
  • ones that make dresses off the curtains in the cabin like giselle from enchanted tbh
  • yes aph kids that are all kinds of outer beauty
  • yes aph kids that are all kinds of inner beauty
  • aph kids that are okay looking but god damn they appreciate and see the beauty in everything and everyone
  • photographers!! painters!!!! ARTISTS!!
  • black widow type of aph kids that are all about emotional manipulation

  • APHRODITE KIDS THAT SHIP EVERYTHING??????
  • aph kids that have one otp they will defend to their death

  • IM HAPPY FOR PIPER MCLEAN BUT I AM SO MAD AT RIORDAN FOR MAKING THE REST OF THE APHRODITE CABIN REPRESENT THE MOST SUPERFICIAL AND BASIC FORM OF LOVE AND BEAUTY (DATING PEOPLE AND PINK FRILLY STUFF HONESTLY) im not saying you cant have drew tanaka-esque aph kids too but
  • YOU CANNOT DEMEAN A GODDESS OF SOMETHING AS ABSTRACT AND AS TIMELESS AS LOVE AND BEAUTY TO BRANDED CLOTHES AND MAKE UP 
  • VARIETY PLEASE

I still think there will be some dynamic between the Legacies of New Rome’s and the demigods.

There most be some sort of segregation or underlying issue that comes from the fact that Legacies can degrade over the generations and yet some demand respect due that slow shrivelling of their physical power… Or maybe the struggle for Legacies to try and protect themselves, fulfill their duties to New Rome, and or just struggle with the idea that if they are even a fouth or fifth generation Legacy and they get married to a mortal… They could be damning their own children to debilitating diseases… Or at the very least face bullying that they are somehow ‘weaker’ than the rest.

Octavian must have went all Trump on Camp Jupiter and promised the Legacies something they always wanted to hear (but never realised what it would mean): they would be free from their Legacy, free from what rooted them in agony and trials. But only when they voted did they find out that the price to free themselves was another camp…

For it was not freedom of godly parentage, but the decreased burden of sharing that they were promised…

The gods had shared their power and their protection with the enemy for over a thousand years… And now their descendants suffer from fading.

Octavian got those Romans real anxious about fading away as he was.
And no one can tell me different.

Vans Girls at Camp Gritty
It’s Do or DIY: Button Bar

Embroidering our backpacks just wasn’t enough, so we upped the decorative ante with a button bar for campers to add some more flair to their Realm Backpacks. We saw everything from funny phrases and matching cabin crew names (shoutout to “Brandon’s B5 Babes”) to intricate handprinted watercolor buttons. You better bet we collected buttons from all of these talented campers to pin on our own backpacks!

Shout out to these campers for letting us repost their rad photos: Photo 1: Buttons/Backpack by Skye Bronte & photo by Caroline Kolbe Photo 5: Buttons by Ashlie Chandler & photo by Jazzy.

#149 - For skamdalised & anonymous x2

Filling the prompts “one where the reader goes on like a hike or something with the band and they’re a bit unfit and you make fun of them and van gets a bit salty and you have to cheer him up?” from @skamdalised, “camping with van and the boys?” and “Cute fluffy summery Van? Like he wants the reader to teach him how to make daisy chains and him getting all frustrated because he can’t do it right and her making him a flower crown and shit” from anonymous x2.


Camilla stood in the middle of the living room with her hands on her hips. Never seeing her so serious, you exchanged a look with Van.

“You want us… to… voluntarily exercise?” Bondy asked, genuinely confused.

“The hike isn’t the point. It’s not even that bad. We’ve done it heaps of times before,” she said.

“Yeah. You and Bob have done. You’re both, like, fit, and stuff,” Benji replied.

“Look. It’s his birthday. He doesn’t want a party or anything, but I think he’d like something. He loves you guys and you only really hang out when it’s about the band and I think this will be fun. We can camp a couple of nights along the trail and the views are amazing. The weather should warm up by then. Please? For Bob?” she asked again.

The proposal was that for Bob’s birthday you’d hike up some mountain and camp. The obvious apprehension the boys felt was that it seemed like a lot of physical exercise for people that smoked multiple packets of cigarettes a day and did not wake up at dawn to go for a run. Cam - Bob’s girlfriend of many years - never asked for much. The fact that she was willing to all but beg was enough to get people on side. She sweetened the deal by saying she’d supply weed, and all girlfriends were invited.

Vans Girls at Camp Gritty | What to Pack

We’re lacing up our Sk8-Hi’s and hitting the road to attend Charlavail’s first ever Camp Gritty. This isn’t just any ordinary summer camp, it’s a weeklong getaway catered to crafty creatives, with ‘Girl Power’ flowing through their veins. So what does a Vans Girl pack for camp? We’re sharing all of our essentials to get you through those hot Tennessee days, and chilly summer nights.

We’ve packed our Old Skool II Backpack with some of our favorite Vans Girls pieces, starting with our latest obsession— the Meridian Mixed Flannel. We love this fun, colorful flannel because it can be worn around the waist during the day, and as a light jacket after the sun sets. Of course when you’re going to be outdoors in the hot summer sun, the Reek Havoc Tee Dress and matching Dugout Baseball Hat are a must. The best thing about this dress is how simple and easy it is to wear. Plus it looks extra cute with a pair of Sk8-Hi’s! Another one of our staple outfits is Denim Shorts and the Vandal Girl Top (in stores) paired with our favorite Semirimless Cat Sunglasses and a bandana necktie for a cute outdoorsy look. Of course, we couldn’t leave home without our Boom Boom Jacket for chilly nights hanging around the campfire.

If you need us, you can find us kicking back in our Checkerboard Slip-Ons making s’mores.
