hopping and squatting


“My name’s Happy. My friends gave me the name. My birth name is Christian, but I don’t go by it at all. I just hitched a ride from Idaho with some people coming back from Rainbow Gathering. Before Idaho, my friend Dumpster Baby and I hopped a freight train from Utah. We spent four hours in a dumpster with a tarp over us while it just rained and rained on us before we left. Now I’m waiting for my friend Rat Boy to come meet up with me. He’s never been to Portland before so he’s off wandering. We might see if we can find a punk show to go to tonight, and then we have a squat house we’re going to crash at.” 

“How is hopping freight trains different than hitchhiking?” 

“Well for better or worse, you’re usually you’re alone for 24 hours on a train. Sometimes the cops bust you. I’ve been busted before. I met some kids that wanted to hop a train and had never done it so I took ‘em. Usually you’re supposed to throw your pack first and then kind of start running before you jump, otherwise you’ll just fall. I watched ‘em do it and they both just rolled. But they were ok. A few cuts and the worst thing was one guy got a bruised knee.” 

“How did you start off this life of wandering?” 

“I grew up in LA, in not the best of neighborhoods. I was used to always hanging on the streets. Then when I was 15 or 16 some friends of mine told me about a squat house in another city and we hopped a train and went there. I love the community of it, kids all helping each other out. There’s even a web forum where people will tell each other where to stay, who to look out for, or a place where you can get fed and things like that.”

“It sounds like such an adventure! I wish I could come take photos of it all.”

“I had a bunch of photos on my phone, but I dropped it on the tracks once, and that was the end of that. It’s not all great though. A lot of kids I know are on meth and I have a friend who got Hep C from sharing needles. Not me, I’m a straight edge. That’s what these tattoos are about.” He held out his hands.

“What about the one on your face?”

“My family is indigenous and my great grandfather completely tried to deny and hide his heritage. And then his son, my grandfather, tried to embrace it. I’d seen a photo of him with these markings, so I had a friend tattoo it on me.” 

“What does it represent?” 

“I’m not sure. My family doesn’t even know what tribe. But I wanted to embrace my heritage.”

The story of the Polaroid Kidd is pretty cool/mysterious - in 2003, Mike Brodie, a self-taught photographer from Pensocola, FL, set out riding the rails of America, hanging with hobos, punks, and other young folk, hopping trains and living in squats and exploring a world not many of us get to see, all the while taking beautiful photos of the experience, exclusively with the classic SX-70 Polaroid camera a friend passed along to him.

It seems that, since 2007, he’s disappeared from view, deciding he was done with photography. After a ton of acclaim and shows, including showing work at the Paris International Photo Fair at the Louve, winning the Baum Award for American Emerging Artists, and a supposed photo book to be published by Steidl(that apparently never came to be), he stopped taking photos. In the four years he took photos though, he created an incredible body of work, capturing a group of people at a distinct time and place, with a great balance of curiosity and respect.

At last report, Brodie received his degree from the Nashville Auto Diesel College, and  works as a Diesel Mechanic.

Re: where he went, and stopping photography cold turkey,  someone on a message board had a nice way of looking at it: “ I’ve been wondering since 2007 where he has gone? no shows, no sites, no contact, no new works, nothing. Like a ghost. My guess is that since it was unintentional to be a “photographer” and exhibit his work in the first place, he sold his work, did some shows and just moved on to life’s next adventure minus a camera.”

Mike, great work.  And here’s to the next adventure.

You looked at the whiteboard hanging on the wall: Jumping Jacks, Gate Swings, Pogo Hops, Seal Jacks, Bodyweight Squats, Side Lunges, Lunge and Rotate, Reverse Lunge and Reach Over Top, Carioca, Lizard Crawl, Skipping Forward, Skipping Backwards, Frankestein Walks, Frankenstein Skips, Inchworm, and Hip Swings. And that was just the warm up.

You then looked over at Seth. “You’ve got to be kidding me.”

“What?” He asked as if trying to figure out what the issue was.

“This is a warm up for you?” You asked looking at the list of things under ‘Dynamic Warmup’.

“This is my usual warm up.” He said.

“Seth, I don’t know about this-“ You said as you put your hands up.

“C’mon, it’ll be fine.” He said as he leaned down to start stretching his legs out.

“Seth, I get that this whole CrossFit thing is your thing. That’s great. But this is not my thing.” You said.

“Just give it a try,” he said.

You shook your head. You were going to be on the floor by the end of this workout. You were not a WWE Superstar. You were not a top athlete like your boyfriend. You were a teacher who chased kids around a classroom all day. You worked out a few times a week to stay in shape but you didn’t do anything close to what Seth did in the gym.

Be brave, sweetheart. Give it one try. If you don’t like it, I promise I won’t make you come back.” He said as his hands cupped your face and he leaned in to press his lips to your forehead.

“Fine but if I can’t feel my legs by the end of the workout, you’re carrying me home.” You said.

“Deal.” He said with a smile. “Now let’s get started on these jumping jacks.”

Your legs felt like jelly when you crossed the threshold. You were almost tempted to collapse on the floor as soon as you entered the house, but Tate stood right in front of you, preventing you from being a puddle in the ground.

“How was your day- Oh. You look like shit.” He looked you over, his eager expression turning to one of playful pity. “That bad, huh?”

“I can’t move.” you groaned, extending your arms pathetically.

“Well then!” Tate exclaimed, turning around and squatting. “Hop on!”

You smiled and all but slumped over his back, allowing him to readjust you before he stood up again. “Here we go!” He yelled, running off into the house as you squealed and held tight. 

Title: Together Forever

Protagonists: Hongbin, Reader, N, Ravi

Warnings: Rated M, Angst, Robots, Cyborgs, Murder, Mild Gore

Word Count: 5500

Summary: You wanted to be with him forever.

Author’s Note: Another PADoll fic! This one was actually inspired by Error. I think it starts off pretty boring, but it does pick up towards the end. The other PADoll fics, “Thank You For Choosing Me” and “To Live Again” should serve to make several things in this fic more impactful. I really should be grading papers/sleeping right now, but I really wanted to finish this. There might be an epilogue coming. Anyway, hope you enjoy!

[FOR HIM] part 2

DRIVE | FOR HIM part 1



You don’t have to say I love you to say I love you

Yoongi managed to drive the car all the way to two towns over, hoping that Namjoon and Hoseok would have thought you just went to the next town. He parked the car on the motel parking lot, turning it off placing his head on the steering wheel. God today was such a hectic day for the both of you, he had almost lost you and that thought just terrified him. Turning to see your sleeping form on the passenger seat he softly caressed your cheek, “I almost lost you love. I don’t know what I would have done.” he muttered.

He sighed, “Babe wake up. Come on love let’s get you some rest” he lightly shook you waking you up. As his bare feet touched the cold cement, gravel digging in his feet he felt small pain and immediately ran to your side.”Come on hop on.” He squatted down in front of you with his back facing you.

“I can walk just find Yoongi.” You sighed lightly shoving his back forward. “No, get on. I’m not letting you walk, your feet are already cut I can’t have you getting even more hurt.” He stated hearing you sighed he knew he had won, feeling your bare legs wrap around his bare skin. Entering the motel lobby he softly sat you on the old overused couch they had, “Stay right here I’ll be back.” he kissed your cheek you sleepily nodded to him.

Garnet! I dare you to give Pearl a piggy back ride and run around the house.

Garnet lowered into a squat. “Hop on.”

“O…kay.” She wrapped her arms and legs around Garnet’s neck and waist.

Garnet stood and hooked her hands under Pearl’s thighs. “Comfortable?”

Pearl buried her face into Garnet’s hair and nodded. “Mhm.”

“Alright.” Garnet trotted, maneuvering as best she could in the rather small house.

“This…isn’t very fun,” Pearl said after awhile.

Garnet hummed in agreement. She jogged outside. “I need space.”

“Garnet? What are you do-AAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!”

Garnet exploded into the air, using her powerful thighs to jump higher than she had in a long while.

Pearl’s grip tightened. “What are you doing?!”

“Making it fun!” The wind rushed by her ears as they began to fall, making her wonder if Pearl had even heard her.

They landed on the edge of the beach, Garnet not wasting anytime tearing through the boardwalk. She sprinted passed the Big Donut, the car wash, the arcade and into town. She ran down the streets as fast as she could, the sound of Pearl’s whooping laughter urging her on.

They ran around the city and outlying land for nearly half an hour, Garnet jumping into the air at random points causing Pearl to shriek in delight and cling tighter to her girlfriend. By the time Garnet slowed to a stop they were on top of a hill that looked over the city. Garnet fell forward, slowing her descent with her hands before lying on the grass, chuckles escaping her.

Pearl released her hold and rolled over onto her back, sprawling out. Her own high pitched giggles wracked her body. She turned her head. “That…was fun.”

Garnet sat up on her elbows and took her glasses off, joy shining in all three eyes. “Yeah.” Her smile was wide. “It was.”

AUTHOR: vulturer

CAST: Aradia/Feferi/Vriska



ADDITIONAL TAGS: no SGRUB AU, military, created for ladystuck 2012

SUMMARY: She’s poisoned, maimed, sleep-deprived, delirious, starving, dehydrated, shot, beaten, and reeks to the high skies, and this is the best she’s felt in three weeks. Steaks, smokes, and a terrifying babe.

“Wish those ninnies had had wine.”

“Revolution is not a dinner party.”

EXCERPT: The skyline is just beginning to nibble the sun when Aradia Megido wakes up. There’s no room to stretch, just enough to scoot out of the troll-sized notch she had found folded into a pile of boulders. The ridges scrape against her sleep-sensitive skin, pulling at her filthy fatigues and pouches. This side of the boulder is in shade, still a little warm as she heaves herself out of the pocket. She hisses happily through her teeth at the crackling in her back and the tight, rubber-band pull of her muscles easing back out. The stale sopor slug curled around her throat comes unstuck with soft, wet pops when she gingerly tugs at it. It curls in on itself and she drops it into its battered, but clean tin, checking the seal. There’s still plenty of perigees left before the slug expires, even if it’s starting feel a little funky. Like a film on old juice. She sets the tin on a flat ledge and unscrews the cap of her canteen, then tips some water onto the slug before sealing it up and stuffing it back in it’s pouch on her thigh. She spits out the scum from her mouth and hops down to squat next to a little stream, cupping her hands in the water, drawing it up to her lips and scrubbing it over her dirt-streaked face. It’s freezing.
