     Hot damn! I’m rather proud of this, since I don’t normally do backgrounds…cause I suck at em. I mean I only did this one because…well, it’s simple.


     Our favorite twins were walking and talking about something ( butts possibly ) or someone ( let’s say Bart ), and weren’t watching where they were going…

     …which resulted in them wondering onto a patch of ice. And now through a series of awkward shuffles and wobbling, most likely slipping too, they’ll try to get back to the snow.

…..or face/butt/back plant, whatever happens first.

Enjoy! I used their coats from Gal of Constant Sorrow. They’re cute okay?
