YOU CANNOT DEMEAN A GODDESS OF SOMETHING AS ABSTRACT AND AS TIMELESS AS LOVE AND BEAUTY TO BRANDED CLOTHES AND MAKE UP
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!
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
“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.
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.
