This gif isn’t a blessed nor cursed image. It’s like … a liminal space.
It’s like time itself has fit itself onto a viewmaster cartridge, so you can view this exact scene the very first moment it aired, distorted by the waves in the time space continuum between you and said scene of May 12, 2016.
My favorite part? Amethyst breaks it up, Pearl breaks it up a little more, and then Garnet’s hips demolish it.
You were terrible with directions- the absolute worst, and it wasn’t an exaggeration. If someone plopped you five blocks away from your apartment, you’d probably walk the opposite direction and end up in the middle of nowhere! Although, there was one advantage to being clueless with a sense of direction- Harry found it absolutely adorable.
“Okay, I put the location in Google Maps, so we should be fine.” You buckled yourself in before reaching up to adjust the mirror. “But the truth is, we probably won’t need Google Maps because I’ve already memorized the path to that cute little diner you said you wanted to go to.” You beamed, very much proud of yourself. You’d never let Harry know this, but you had spent the past week practicing the route of getting from his place to the diner.
“A’right, love. I trust yeh. Hopefully, we get there before the sun sets.” Harry joked, smiling over at you when you rolled your eyes playfully. He always liked teasing you about how scatterbrained you were when it came to directions, and even though you didn’t really mind- Well, you wanted to prove to him that you were somewhat capable of getting from point A to point B without getting lost!
“We’ll arrive in less than twenty minutes, and if I’m unsuccessful, I’ll treat you to your disgusting green smoothies for the next week.” You challenged, already feeling a little heated at the cocky smirk plastered on Harry’s face. You loved him dearly, but good God, he was irritating.
It turns out that putting yourself on a time limit wasn’t the best idea because that had definitely put a damper on your confidence levels to get you and Harry to this damn diner. All the roads seemed to look different, and you had forgotten your glasses so you could barely read the signs.
“In two blocks, turn left.” What exactly was a block? Was a block where the sidewalk ended? That seemed to make sense. Right? Or maybe it was-
“Yeh missed the turn.” You nearly swerved when Harry’s voice interrupted your oh-so intense questions about what a block was.
“That’s fine, I’ll just… I’ll just U-turn!”
“Yeh can’t U-turn here.”
“Wrong direction. Wrong direction.”
“You’re not being very helpful, Siri.” You muttered, aggressively flicking the turn signal as you tried to figure out a solution. Maybe if you just turned on this street, you could drive back to the right route!
“Sorry, I didn’t quite catch that.”
“She didn’t catch that, Y/N.” Harry poked your arm, giggling when you swatted his hand away. He leaned against the armrest, watching you intently. “Y/N, yeh need to speak up fo’ Siri.”
“She’s a robot-”
“She has feelings jus’ like you and me, love.”
“You sound insane.” You grumbled, stepping down on the gas pedal and keeping your eyes peeled for any familiar looking routes. Nada!
“Reminder: brunch in five minutes.”
“You heard the woman, Y/N. Five minutes!”
“Harry, I swear to go-”
“Sorry, I didn’t quite catch that.” Quickly, you reached over and locked your phone, letting out a little huff. Siri was just as annoying as your boyfriend.
Four wrong turns and forty minutes later, you finally made it. Except, this wasn’t a very triumphant moment.
“So what have we learned?”
“Always listen to Google Maps.”
“And?” You let out a heavy sigh, propping your chin up on your palm as you looked out the window.
“Speeding through red lights to get to brunch isn’t appropriate.”
“Siri has valid feelings just like you and m-”
“Sorry, I didn’t quite catch that.”
