my giant kid


Stanuary week two: Protect
He might not always be able to be there to protect his brother from bullies, but at least he can keep him from taking their words to heart.

You can see all of my Stanuary entries here.

knitting a blanket & suddenly not sure how big blankets are supposed to be. 12 feet across? 15??


Good news- the small child was perfectly enchanted by her mermaid surprise unlike the first mermaid party I did where the birthday girl wanted to be as FAR AWAY FROM THE MERMAID AS POSSIBLE

they wheeled me out on a desk chair which was pretty hilarious but actually worked a lot better than a Throne of Dads

and then omfg to get me in the pool

they put me in one of those disability chairs that you sit in and it sloooooowly lowers you into the pool

so I just sat in it, princess-waving for a full 5 minutes while I’m majestically lowered into the water. hilarious

Unlike the last party I actually was SWIMMING the whole time! They plopped me right into the deep end and I paddled around with the kids (who had floaties on and were swimming with their parents). Birthday girl was more than happy to show Marina the Mermaid how she can dunk her head in the water and jump off the side into her mom’s arms (she had just turned 4). Super cute.

Pokemon Age!!

Solas wanders as a normal trainer but is actually Fen Harel, the leader of Team Spirit that fights to free all pokemon!! His main pokemon is legendary Zygarde, and I think it is the perfect one for him, it’s forms are based on Loki’s children and “it is said to monitor the balance of the ecosystem and reveal its power when the ecosystem is disrupted”

Your weight on mine

Sometimes, you just wanted to crawl into bed and die. 

Jyn Erso didn’t quite have the energy for that, though. All she could do was collapse face-first onto the Alliance-issued bunk without even taking her boots off. To save the mud from being caked into the blankets, she lay at an awkward angle, letting her feet hang off the edge. A groan. A rub of her eyes. Eventually, she forced herself to kick the boots off her feet, letting them clunk to the floor. 

She wouldn’t mind how her body felt like it had been dragged, battered and bruised, through hell. It was the fact that every mission she was sent on, every Stormtrooper she ever shot, it was always just the same endless cycle. Nothing she did ever made a difference. She could keep killing the bad guys, she could keep subjecting herself to injury and exhaustion, she could push and push herself to her utmost limit, and it still wouldn’t be enough. 

The Empire’s grip was just too tight. 

“I’m guessing the mission didn’t go well.” 

She sighed at his voice. She hadn’t realised he was even back yet. 

“Hey,” she said half-muffled into the mattress. “You guess right.” 

They spent a lot of their days seperated as they did their part for the rebellion. Saying goodbye and reuniting were almost daily routines for them, only now Jyn was struggling to see how it was all worth it. Wouldn’t it be better to just run away from all this? Let somebody else fight this worthless fight. Run away to some remote planet somewhere, buy a house, get married, taking up some ridiculously mundane hobby like gardening or something … 

She rolled over onto her back where she could see him. Cassian looked about as exhausted as she felt, clearly having arrived only minutes after her. They exchanged looks and immediately, he dropped his bag and jacket, kicking off his own boots to where they could join hers on the floor. Then he climbed up onto the tiny bed that they shared whenever they were both on base, basically lying down on top of her. 

On the days it wasn’t worth it, she could always at least count on Cassian’s body to ground her. At first he had protested that he had to be hurting her, but she felt whole somehow whenever he relaxed his weight on top of her. It felt almost like if they lay there long enough, she might just absorb his body into hers. She wrapped her arms tightly around him, legs tangled together, Cassian letting his head rest against her chest. 

“Why do we still do this?” she asked, quietly. 

He sighed. “Because it’s the right thing to do.” 

“I’m tired, Cassian.” 

“I know,” he said, voice rumbling straight down into her. “but we keep fighting anyway.” 

They were silent a few moments. She knew, of course. She knew that as many times she fantasied about running away, there were a million reasons more that would ultimately end up convincing her to stay. She would remember the look on her papa’s face as he died in her arms. She would feel the crystal resting against her skin. She would look at Cassian as he slept beside her, or right before he would kiss her, and she would know. She couldn’t ever possibly give up. 


“Ok, but don’t move yet,” she insisted, tightening her arms and legs around him. 

She felt him chuckle a little against her. “Wasn’t going to.” 

I finally saw The Lightning Thief Musical yesterday!!! It was so much fun and totally worth it, 10/10 would watch again. It was very accurate to the books, obviously they had to skim a lot to fit everything in 2 hours, but the tone/feel was spot on and there were tons of little references for fans.

Best performances imo were Chris McCarrell and Carrie Compere who both have incredible voices, but the entire cast is great. Everyone (except Chris) had so many costume changes and also doubled as stage crew haha. Sarah Beth Pfeifer as a squirrel and Jonathan Raviv as Chiron made me laugh so hard. Honestly tho, Chris is the perfect Percy, his portrayal was amazing.

I sat in the first row so I got to experience the actors’ spittage up close lmao, also we got showered with golden confetti and covered in toilet paper via leaf blowers, it was awesome. My fave songs were Good Kid (obviously), Strong, and DOA. Tl;dr where is our cast recording???
