I can’t wait for summer mornings. Orange juice, strawberries, brown spotted bananas. Running through the sprinklers. Biking barefoot around town. Ice cream sodas. Eating cherries on white paper towels til the juice bleeds through. Pink bikinis on Lake Michigan, pick-up basketball in the park, painting my nails outside on the porch. The syrupy evenings.

“You could have had a home. You could be there now. In a little white house. On a quiet sunny street. Nobody firing missles at you. Knowing who your friends are. Listening to the neighbors’ kids squeal, running through the sprinkler one more time. While she works on her tan. The one you love. The one who loves you.  You’d look at her and she’d look back at you. And smile. And you’d know she was wandering, too. How beautiful they’d have to be. The children you’d have someoday. You could have had that. You could have had it all.

sunlit baby blue bedroom, picking dandelions, running through sprinklers in wet grass, fluttering white butterflies, lemonade stands, chlorine scented skin, sidewalk chalk scrawlings on the front steps, a barbie jeep in a sunny backyard, watermelon lip smackers, plastic butterfly hair clips, blockbuster dvds, capri sun and fruit snacks, air conditioner humming, barefoot on hot pavement, skip it, america online, nickelodeon’s day of play, bouncy balls in the driveway, a rumble of thunder in the sky

anonymous asked:

Head cannons for mei, genji, junkrat, road hog , soldier 76, and tracer at a water park

~I only do up to five head canons so i’ll do five right now. Feel free to send another with any others when requests are open. 


Tracer

  • She didn’t put on sun screen. She’s baking like a fried egg out there in the heat. She’ll have weird tan lines before they leave. Junkrat laughs at her. 
  • First one in the bumper boats. 
  • Somehow found, purchased, and ate several cotton candies before anyone could stop her. She’s practically vibrating with energy. 
  • Gets everyone together to do a multi person tunnel ride. Soldier 76 and Roadhog are the only ones who don’t scream. 

Genji

  • Finds the tallest water slide he can and immediately gets in line for it. You can hear his scream on the way down. 
  • He loves to just jump into the water from high up. If he can, he’ll skip the slide all together and leap. 
  • He loves the rapid water rides. Anything fast he’ll get one. He loves the rush right before he takes to the air and lands in the splash pools below. 
  • He sends pictures to Zenyatta all day long. 

Junkrat

  • Not the strongest swimmer. Roadhog made him where floaties. He’s not happy about it. They stops him from drowning twice.
  • Second one in the bumper boats. He’s out for blood. He didn’t come here to have fun, he came here to win. He will knock Tracer out of her bumper boat or die trying. 
  • Loves to run through the sprinklers in the water playgrounds. Squirts Roadhog in the face with them and runs for his life afterward. 
  • He’s excited to get on the tunnel rides until he’s actually there. One minute, everything’s beautiful. The sky is clear and then BAM! A 100 foot drop of darkness. His screams echo through the tunnel all the way down. 

Roadhog

  • Loves the wave pools. He likes to bounce with the waves and watch the people go under. Especially if it’s Junkrat. Those waves can’t beat his size. 
  • If he can cannon ball anywhere, he’s doing it. All the kids around him love it. The parents in the splash zone, not so much. 
  • Gets on every single slide ride backwards. He thinks its more exciting that way. Junkrat tries once, never again after that.
  • Roadhog can do just about any ride until it has a loop. He can’t handle loops. 200 foot drop? You got it. Teacup ride? You got it. 100 foot drop with a loop in the middle. Nope, not happening. 

Soldier 76

  • His mask doubles as a snorkel. 
  • No one’s getting him out of the lazy river for anything short of someone pissing in the pool.
  • If you challenge him, he’ll get on just about any ride. He’ll face a 200 foot drop before he lets you call him a chicken. 
  • He’ll never forgive them for putting him on a ride where the floor comes out from under him. He wasn’t ready. That’s the one time anyone ever heard him scream on a water ride. 
  • sun woo: you know, since you're living in your car, maybe you should live with us. we need an extra roommate and rent is pretty cheap.
  • soo ho: sure! thanks, guys.
  • yeo wool: wait, if you lived in your car since last semester, how did you shower?
  • soo ho: i run through the sprinklers when the sun goes down.
  • sun woo: ... you're the legendary night streaker?
  • soo ho: that, i am.
  • ban ryu: i don't think that's something to be proud of.
  • soo ho: that, i am not.
The Sprinkler

El sits back in the hammock and lazily swings, toes skimming the overgrown grass below. Her half-finished Boxcar Children book lies on her chest, an old pair of Nancy’s sunglasses perched on her nose. The afternoon sun is hot, the air almost oppressive. Joyce and Jonathan are off at work and Will left the hammock a while ago.

She’s half-asleep when she hears noises coming from across the yard. She looks up to see Will leaving the shed, carrying a coil of green hose and dressed in his swim shorts. He lays something in the grass and works to untangle the hose before pulling the end toward the spigot.

“What’re you doing?” she calls from the hammock.

Will looks back at her with a glint in his eye. “Setting up the sprinkler.”

“Why?”

“It’s fun. Trust me. Go put on your suit.” And he turns back to finish screwing on the hose.

El is a little confused but she likes when Will is happy so she skips into the house and grabs her suit. Most of her clothes are hand-me-downs from Nancy, but her swimsuit is new and her very own, pale pink with white polka dots. When she wears it, she feels like a normal kid, one who goes to the local pool with the boys or the lake with her brothers.

By the time she’s back outside, the sprinkler is shooting water high into the air. She stands on the stoop and cocks her head quizzically at Will. The boy grins from the other side before barreling through the spray with a whoop. Wiping a hand across his eyes, he calls for her to come down. “It’s like taking a shower outside!”

Hesitating only a moment longer, El runs and hops over the sprinkler, laughing as she passes through the water wall. The cold feels good with the sun beating down and soon she finds herself hopping back and forth, taking turns with Will. The dog joins them, barking in glee. A few times they slip on the soaked grass but the tumbles only make them laugh harder.

They’ve been running through the water for maybe an hour when Will bends down to unscrew the hose from the sprinkler. El stands before him, unsuspecting, and he lifts the hose, holding his thumb over the opening to spray water at her. She shrieks in surprise and he pauses for a moment. He’s always careful to make sure she’s okay, all the boys are. But she just grins and turns to run, yelling, “Can’t catch me, can’t catch me!” Will giggles and follows her.

Jonathan gets home to find that his mom has just beaten him. She’s standing at the window looking into the backyard and silently beckons him to her. They watch as the two kids run around the grass, shooting water at each other and squealing, the dog at their heels. Joyce’s and Jonathan’s eyes meet and each knows what the other is thinking: they haven’t heard Will laugh like this in ages. Joyce blinks back a tear and goes to the kitchen to make sandwiches for a picnic dinner. Jonathan runs to his room to collect his camera.

Several pages of an photo album are eventually devoted to this day, mostly of two skinny kids and a shaggy dog and water droplets all around them. One of Joyce carrying a plate of sandwiches, her hand trying to cover her face but her smile visible underneath. One of El and Jonathan, taken by Will. One of Hopper walking around the house from the front yard, clearly surprised by the camera. One of El and Will wrapped up in towels in the hammock, sound asleep.

  • Timeout.com: It's [Have One On Me] been called a pop record.
  • Joanna: ‪I guess it's almost like I'm saying the same thing [as on Ys], but the intention is a little different for me. For some reason I was in the mood to make something very direct. I felt like I had been so abstract in some ways and kind of ungrounded, there were a lot of frenetic, hypercomplicated musical or harmonic transitions, an extremely compacted, compounded density of lyrics as well as a hyperawareness of the structure of the lyric, the syllabic emphases and the interior rhyme structure. Just a bunch of stuff like that. I had felt like I had been in that very constricted space. Sort of outfitted in this specialized writing gear. I felt like an astronaut or something in my crazy suit walking around in space doing this specialized, technical thing. For me, for whatever reason, that was what I need to do at the time to make what was ultimately a very emotional and intense at times record.‬
  • Timeout: It is a sad record, isn't it?
  • Joanna: For me, it was. But I think for whatever reason when I started work on this record I zipped off the astronaut suit and wanted to be grounded on earth and very earthy, very bodily, physical. I wanted the songs to be easier. Warmer; and a lot of that was intention and a lot of that was a product of the mood that I was in. I did a German interview the other day, where I said that it reminded me of when I was really little and I would go to church. I was five or something. I remember wearing my little sailor dress and zip collar and itchy wool tights and patent leather shoes. My hair was tied up into some really tight French braid and I would get home and tear it all off. Throw it in a pile in the corner and run around outside...Sunday! Run around with my brother and my sister and the dog. Run through the sprinklers if it was summer. And that feeling. And there was something like that that pervaded the process of editing this record. I'm unburdening and setting off to work in a way. I think that it lends a directness probably to the record which might be what some people call a "pop feel." Because it's certainly not a pop record.

It’s bullshit that teens and adults aren’t allowed to play. 

 I have a younger sister, so I continued to play make believe games longer than most of my peers. Eventually, around middle school, I noticed that the other kids around me were no longer playing with dolls and stuffed animals. “Oh.” I thought. “I guess I should stop doing that too.”

 But the desire to create, to imagine, to act out stories, that never goes away. Sure, maybe some adults can get away with fulfilling that desire by going to the renaissance faire or playing Dungeons and Dragons. But even those activities are ridiculed, and it certainly isn’t acceptable for a grownup to enjoy playing with barbies or action figures or make a spaceship out of a refrigerator box.

 Adulthood restricts the playfulness in all of us. Granted, it certainly isn’t unheard of for adults to play video games, or for men to graduate from collecting matchbox cars to repairing real ones. But no adults can play as freely and unashamedly as they did as children, even in their limited free time. And women? We’re expected to stop playing dress-up as witches and queens and instead learn to do our contour. We trade in playing tag and climbing the monkey bars for running on the treadmill at the gym. Adults aren’t barred from fun, of course, but we are expected to only enjoy certain types of entertainment, often media based or involving alcohol.

 I know for a fact that the stories I created as a little girl were practice for the writing I do today. But sometimes the words alone just aren’t enough. I want to get out my Playmobiles and build a world of intrigue and betrayal, make the yard a battlefield where I fight invisible foes, even just run through the sprinkler with my friends again. And I’m not just talking about age regression here—the games I would play with my American girl dolls and plastic animals would be much grittier and complex than anything a child could come up with. I just want playing with toys to stop being shameful for adults, even teenagers who aren’t so very far from their childhood years. We encourage creativity and innovation in science, in art, in writing, why condemn it when it brings nothing but personal enjoyment?

 My mom, who just turned 50, told me recently that she doesn’t yet feel like a grown up. I don’t either, but yet I am expected to leave behind my childish wonder and silliness behind just because I have to pay car insurance and college fees. It makes me sad.

running through water sprinklers. an unconventional love for words. oversized hoodies. sketches in the margins of your notes. falling in love. clutching something so tightly that your knuckles turn white. sunflowers. tinted windows. light filtered through leaves. cities during daytime. dancing without music. the sound of waves crashing against seaside rocks. catching somebody turning away smiling at a joke you made.

🎈👑 A Party Fit For A Princess! 🎈👑

We had so much fun at Mia’s birthday party yesterday! It was sooo super hot out so the girls spent most of the day running through the sprinkler and playing in the kiddie pool.

Mia’s party was Sofia the First themed and it was sooo cute. 😍I can’t wait to plan the twins birthday party even though it’s not for a loooong time. 😂 Dylann really outdid herself on decorations. The twins hadn’t seen Mia since she spent the weekend at our house so they really loved being able to play with her again.

The girls normally cry whenever it’s time to leave from somewhere, but yesterday they were so exhausted they literally asked to go bye-bye and as soon as we got in the car and I turned the air on, they were knocked out. 😂

Dance with Me

Prompt: Dance with me

Words: 699


          You love the rain. You love the sound, the way it looks, and most of all the way it feels. For some reason water has always brought you comfort. You lived for those warm summer days where you could dive into the pool, run through a sprinkler, or jump into an oncoming wave. You refer to the water as your happy place.

          That’s why when the first drops of the storm start hitting your window, you immediately come awake. You press your face against the window, and goose bumps rise along your skin, at the contact of the cold glass. Your grin widens as a strike of lightning illuminates the sky.

          You don’t give it another thought, you dash as quietly as you can from your bedroom, and down the stairs. You’re careful to stay quiet as you slip out one of the sliding doors and onto the back deck.

          You go to the edge of the canopy, that is shielding you from the falling water, and hold out your hand. You can’t help but relax as the water hits your palm, somewhat cool for a fall rain.

          Another flash of lightning streaks across the sky.

          “You’re going to get yourself electrocuted.”

          You can’t help the little squeak that comes out of your mouth, at the sound of his voice. You turn to glare at your boyfriend, and your hands go to your hips. “Damian,” you hiss, “What in the world are you doing here at three in the morning?”

          He smirks, “I’m always out this late, comes with job.” Your eyes roam up and down his Robin uniform, before you cross your arms. He approaches you, and takes your hands in his, “I stopped by just to check on you. I know your parents are out of town for the next few weeks.”

          You smile, “That was very sweet of you.”

          He pulls you into him, and you snuggle into his warmth. He kisses your hair and asks, “So what are you doing up this early?”

          You smile at him, “Well before you scared me half to death I was enjoying the rain.” There’s a moments of silence as his hand rubs up and down your arm before you say, “You know what I’ve always wanted to do?”

          “Go to Thailand?”

            “No … Well yes, but I meant in this moment?”

           “Make out?”

          You roll your eyes and swat his chest, “No, you hormonally charged teenage boy.”

          “Then I have no clue, what have you always wanted to do?”

          “Dance in the rain.”

          There’s a moment of silence before Damian simply says, “That was so much cornier than I expected.”

          You glare at him, “It’s not corny. That’s how my parents ended their first date. They’d gone out to this amazing dinner, and this storm rolled in. And instead of letting it ruin their night, my dad asked my mom to dance in the rain. She said that it was in that moment she knew she’d spend the rest of her life in love with my dad.”

          His eyes soften a bit at the story, and his arms slowly disappear from around you. He takes two steps back, and stares at you for a moment, before he goes into a gentleman’s bow, “May I have this dance?”

          A soft smile plays on your lips, “What happened to corny?”

          He looks up at you, never breaking his bow and says, “I want that moment. I want us to know that we’ll always love each other. So, dance with me … please.”

          You take his hand and as he straightens you say, “I knew I’d always love you that day you gave me your favorite sweatshirt, simply because you knew I loved it.”

          He smiles as he leads you out into the rain and sweeps you into a dance, “I’d give you the entire moon if it meant you’d be happy.”

          You dance in the rain that night, and the pounding of the rain becomes your song. And every time, a large rainstorm rolls in at night, for the rest of your life, Damian wakes you and simply says, “They’re playing our song, dance with me.”
