whitney hand

Believe it or not, Matt Browning’s grids are each hand-carved from a single block of wood. The artist explains: “The work itself began as a challenge, whether or not I could take a piece of wood or any material really, and, through a series of selective cuts, expand that material, spatially and volumetrically, in a way that never actually separates the material from itself.” Hear more from Browning in the Biennial audio guide.

Summary: Whitney Earp is getting married, which in a small town like Purgatory, is big news already, but Whitney has a secret. While sorting through some boxes in the attic, preparing for her move off the homestead, she stumbles across a familiar white stetson, and her mother’s old journal. She learns that her mother Waverly has been keeping something important from her her entire life – Waverly Earp is not her biological mother. Through lies and the perfect scheme, and a wedding that is one disaster after another, Whitney is determined to get to the bottom of the family secret, even if it means getting both of her mothers in the same room after 20 years of estrangement.

Note: @jaybear1701 and I promised that as soon as we were blessed with new content from the Wynonna team, we would start posting this. The idea for this started as a Christmas fic but it got back burnered until just recently. It was inspired during a less than sober viewing of Mamma Mia and the dilemma came from how do you gay up a story line that only seems possible in a straight world.  We hope we did ok.

We don’t speak of that pink haired bitch and her fuckin Miltank…

Preference #29 Engagement

Niall:

You, Niall, and Whitney had drove into London for the day. You had stopped at one of your favorite bakeries to grab an afternoon snack. You had no idea what was about to happen, you thought it was just like any other day. You took Whitney to sit down as Niall ordered the food. When he returned he seemed to be a bit nervous. “Are you alright?” you were worried that something was wrong but Niall said he was fine. “I’m great, why do you ask?” even his voice was a bit shaky. “You seem a little panicked..” “Not at all! I must just be really hungry..”, a moment later one of the waitresses was carrying the desserts over to your table. “Enjoy” she said with a smile as she walked away. “Here, Y/N, I think they switched our orders.”, as soon as he switched your plates you covered your mouth in shock. “Wait, what!?”, Niall got down on one knee and took your hands in his “Y/N, I love you so much and you’ve given me the best 4 years of my life and the best daughter I could ask for. You make me the man that I am and I can’t picture my life without you. Will you marry me?” your eyes began filling with tears and even Whitney was clapping her hands. “Oh of course I will Niall! I love you so much!”, everyone in the bakery was clapping and cheering for the two of you. You were so overwhelmed, this was definitely the best surprise you’d ever gotten.

Liam:

Liam knew how into exercise you were and so he thought he would surprise you with a new pair of running shoes. These weren’t just any ordinary running shoe though, these shoes would tell you the fate for the rest of your future. He wrapped up the box and put a nice ribbon on it before he gave it to you. You weren’t expecting anything so you really didn’t have any clue as to what it was. As soon as you tore off the paper and opened the box you were completely shocked. On the shoes were the words “Marry Me?”, “…Li, is this for real!?”, he got down on one knee and took your shaky hands in his. “Y/N I love you so much and I want to be with you for the rest of my life. So…what do you say, will you marry me?”, you leaped into his arms as tears came down your face. “Of course I will! I love you so so much!” You couldn’t wait to spend the rest of your life with the man that you loved most.

Louis:

Both you and Louis loved your tea, you would have a cup everyday together. It was your special time to tell each other everything and just spend some alone time with one another. Louis set down your cup of tea and sat across from you. He seemed a little shaken up about something, his legs were shaking and he was tapping his fingers on the table; something he usually did when he was nervous. “Are you okay? You look like you’ve just seen a ghost..”, he snapped out of his thoughts and reassured you that it was nothing. “Alright then..” you then looked down at the tea and stirred it a few times before you took the spoon out. As you were placing the spoon down you saw something on it, words it looked liked. You brought it up closer and you could hear Louis gulp. Written on the spoon were the words “Will you marry me?”, you quickly dropped the spoon and you could see Louis next to you on his knee. “Y/N, you make me the happiest man alive and I want nothing more than to wake up to you every morning and spend the rest of my life with you. Will you marry me?”, tears were pouring down your face (happy ones of course) and you immediately jumped into Louis arms. “Of course Louis, that was so sweet and I love you so much. I wouldn’t want my life any other way..”

Harry:

You and Harry were having a quiet evening on the couch. You had your head in one of your favorite books while Harry was watching TV. “Hey babe, I picked up this really cool book today that I think you would really enjoy..” “Yeah, what’s the name of it? Maybe I’ve seen it before.” “Umm hold on, I’ll show it to you!”, when he returned you looked at the book and at first you thought you were reading it wrong. Why would Harry get you a book about marriage? When you looked up at him to ask him what this was about, he was down on one knee with a ring in his hand. You covered your mouth with your hands and your eyes welled up with tears. “Y/N, I know this wasn’t the most romantic proposal but I really hope it’s your last. I want to be with you for the rest of my life and If I’m not then I just don’t know what I’ll do with myself. I love you more than words can explain, so will you give me the honor to marry you?” “Oh Harry, this is so sweet! I would love to be your wife. I love you more than anything in the world!”

Zayn:

You and Zayn had gone on a little weekend trip to the beach and when you got back to the room you saw something on the bed. You immediately broke into tears and Zayn was already on one knee. “Y/N I didn’t know how else to ask and I just couldn’t wait any longer. I want to spend every minute with you and I love you so much I can’t even put it into words. Would you marry me?” “Zayn oh my god, yes! I love you so much! You make me the happiest girl in the world and I wouldn’t want to be with anyone else.”, you couldn’t believe what had just happened and that you were actually going to be married to the love of your life.

** The preferences don’t really have an order to them so some of the boys have their kids already and some don’t! I hope you enjoyed this one, I’m going to do a few more wedding preferences soon! xx

Preference #26 Visiting Him on Tour

Niall:

Niall had only been away for about 2 weeks but he already missed you and Whitney. He felt bad that he had to leave you alone with the baby but it’s part of the job. The separation was just to much for Niall, so he decided on flying the both of you out to the US where the boys were currently touring. 

When you landed at the airport, you were met with Paul who drove you back to the arena to see Niall and the rest of the boys. As soon as Niall caught sight of you he immediately stopped singing and ran over to you. “My 2 favorite girls! Oh I missed you guys so much…it’s been hell without you both here.” you gave him a kiss and Whitney repeated your action. “Aw, thank you princess! Did you miss daddy?”, Whitney clapped her hands and nodded as she giggled. “Well someone’s happy! She slept the whole way over here so she’s full of energy”, Niall kept Whitney with him the whole time, even through rehearsals. He hated that he was missing his child grow up while he was away but he would just fly you guys out to see him to make up for it. 


Liam:

Liam was in the middle of a world tour and you hadn’t seen him for about a month. Of course you two would video chat so he could see the kids, but it just wasn’t the same. You got in touch with Harry who helped you plan a surprise visit with the kids to see Liam. You knew Liam would love it; he missed the kids so much and he hated himself for leaving you three. 

When you landed in Sweden you had Harry pick you up so Liam wouldn’t know about the surprise. When you arrived back at the hotel, you lightly knocked on his hotel door; when Liam opened it he thought he was in a dream. “Is it really you! Oh, I can’t believe this! How did you get here? Were the kids okay? Are you okay?” “Yes Liam, its real and everything is fine!” you laughed at how in shock he was to see you. Michael and Adriana both reached out for their dad and he took them into his arms, kissing them both on their heads. “Oh I’ve missed you both so much! Have you been good to mommy?” he finally reached out for you and gave you a kiss “Babe I can’t believe your here! This is the best surprise ever..and now that your here, I don’t think I’m ever gonna let you guys leave, it’s been awful without you guys.”


Louis:

Now that you and Louis had kids, going away on tour was much harder than usual. Instead of missing one person, he was now missing three. You would video chat almost everyday so he could see and talk to the kids even though they didn’t really understand what was going on. The other boys would call you too, telling you how down Louis was and how he just wasn’t his usual happy self. You thought if you brought the kids to go and visit him that maybe it would cheer him up a bit. You made arrangements with Niall to set up a surprise visit and he was happy to help. The three of you met up with Niall at the airport and he took you to where the boys were going to be performing that night. 

You headed back to the dressing room where the rest of the boys were and when Louis caught glimpse of you, his face turned to pure joy. “Y/N? I can’t believe that you’re here!” he gave you a kiss and then grabbed the kids to do the same. “Drew! Leighton! Did you miss daddy? I’m sorry I had to go to work and couldn’t be home with you guys but I promise I’ll make it up to you!” both kids giggled and clapped their hands together. You missed being together as a family and you knew it was hard on Louis. That night, you could tell Louis was in a much better mood. The whole performance was full of energy and he just couldn’t wait for the show to be over so he could spend time with the three of you. 


Harry:

Harry hated to be away from you so long and now that you two had Eric, he hated it even more. He felt like he was missing out on such a big part of Eric’s childhood. 

The boys were going to be off for a few days but it wasn’t long enough for them to fly back home. Harry decided he would fly you and Eric out to see him in LA instead, while they had a short break. You couldn’t wait to be in LA with Harry and the warm weather was going to be a bonus. Harry met you both at the airport, luckily there weren’t many fans there so you didn’t get mobbed. Harry wrapped you in a tight hug giving both you and Eric a kiss. “It feels so good to be back with you guys..I’ve missed you so much.” Eric giggled and reached out for his dad, “Hi buddy, have you missed me? I bet mommy has been taking good care of you!” Harry hated having to miss his little boy growing up. He would do anything to just be there for the everyday moments and milestones.


Zayn:

This was the first time the boys had been on tour since you had Blair. Zayn hated the fact that he had to leave but it was only going to be for about a month. 

It had only hit the two week mark when Zayn asked you to fly out to see him. You weren’t complaining, you missed him too. He met you at the Berlin airport and was already close to tears when he saw you both. “I thought I would be able to handle this so much better…but I just hate being away from my two girls.” Blair was in that phase where she only wanted to be in her dads arms and would cry otherwise. Every minute of the day that Zayn wasn’t working, it would be spent with both you and Blair. He loved being together as a family and when you weren’t together he felt like a piece of him was missing.

Preference #25 Meeting the Baby

Niall:

Your parents were going to be coming to London to visit for the week. They wanted to finally meet baby Whitney. Neither of you could believe that you actually had your own child now, it was like a dream come true. 

The moment your mother came through the door, the first thing she did was go over to see the baby cradled in Niall’s arms. “Oh, isn’t she the most precious thing in the world! My goodness!” “Would you like to hold her Mrs.Y/L/N?” Niall offered as he began handing Whitney over to your mother. “Oh Niall, you know you can call me Y/M/N, your my son-in-law!” she immediately took the tiny baby into her arms as it was handed to her. “She’s so precious..Hi there Whitney”, Niall looked over to you and smiled. Your father patted Niall on the back and congratulated him. Your parents were so proud of you and they were so happy for the two of you. For the rest of their visit, there was never a moment when Whitney wasn’t in your mother’s arms, even your father enjoyed taking her and playing  with her for a bit. You loved seeing your parents so happy and how proud they were of you. Their first grand-child.


Liam:

Michael and Adriana were a few months old now and you and Liam were going to be taking them on their first trip. The four of you were going to be flying to the US to see your parents and siblings. You hadn’t seen them in months and now they could finally get the chance to meet their grand kids. You both had never travelled with kids before, let alone 2 of them. It was a bit hard to get through security but once you got on the plane they slept the whole way. 

As soon as you landed your parents were there to greet you at the gate. You each handed one of the kids to your parents and they were so happy for the two of you. “Aren’t you just the cutest!” your mother cooed to Adriana. Your father on the other hand was busy making silly faces in attempt to get Michael to laugh. The both of them were in love with the two kids and you were so happy with the little family you had. You just wished that your parents lived closer so you could visit them more often.


Louis:

You and Louis were going to be bringing Drew and Leighton over to his parents house so they could finally meet the two newborns. When you first arrived, Jay immediately ran up to you, giving you a hug and a congratulations. Louis came in shortly after carrying in the two car seats. “Oh, look at these little angles” Jay cooed at the two kids on either side of Louis. “Hi, mum. Meet Drew and Leighton” Louis smiled and set the carriers on the counter. “Oh my, aren’t you two just the cutest! I’m so proud of my baby for having little children of his own!” “Mumm..”, Louis said slightly embarrassed. “Oh, don’t be silly!”, you laughed at the scene unfolding in front of you. Louis’ sisters then came into the room and burst out into a fit of “Aww’s”, “Y/N I’m so happy for you! They’re seriously the cutest!”, Lottie came over and gave you a hug, you smiled and thanked her. The entire day all attention was on the babies and you could see how proud Louis was to be showing off his kids and truly how excited he was to be a father.


Harry:

You and Harry were going to be meeting up with Anne and Gemma so they could finally meet baby Eric. Harry still couldn’t believe that he was actually a father. 

You both arrived at Harry’s childhood home no more than a few minutes ago and as soon as Anne saw Eric she had tears welling up in her eyes. “Oh I’m so proud of you both!” “Aww baby bro created another little Styles”, Anne and Gemma just couldn’t get over the fact that he looked just like Harry. He had the same green eyes and dark chestnut hair. You could already tell that he was going to be a daddy’s boy, the two of them already doing everything together, even though Eric probably didn’t understand anything going on around him. “And look at those little cheeks!!” you and Harry laughed at Gemma’s excitement over the newborn. “Anytime you need a babysitter, you better call me!” “Gem, you really need to get your own kid, there’s no way you’re stealing mine!” you laughed at the two siblings knowing this conversation would come up many more times in the future.


Zayn:

Your parents were going to be flying to England to see the new baby and also to have a visit with you and Zayn. They hadn’t visited for a few years, usually the two of you would be the ones flying back to the US to visit them. 

You were so excited for your parents to meet Blair for the first time. You felt so grown up now; having your own family and new home. Zayn had gone to pick them up from the airport so you could straighten up the house a bit. When they got back home the first thing your mother wanted to see was the baby. “You are just the cutest thing, aren’t you!” you laughed at your mothers excitement. Your father and Zayn were having their own conversation while your mom fussed over the baby. “Oh, I almost forgot! I brought clothes for the little one!” “Oh, mom, you didn’t have to!” “Don’t be silly it’s my only granddaughter and now I have an excuse to look at all the cute baby things!”. Blair was always in your mothers hands, she loved all the attention. You could tell that grandma was going to spoil her rotten.
