HERP Benji's SummerBenji was the second person awake in his house on this very special occasion. Katjaa came to wake them and he was already halfway there. He hopped up, quickly dressing and insisting he help with any necessary chores. He even offer red to try and help wake their mother.
He was just as excited as his sister for the professional quidditch match they were attending and was hopping with excitement as if he had been given three bags of sugar to eat.
His attempts to wake their mother had not worked, so they were at the mercy of her own clock, which he kept hoping would realize they had things to do and would chime loudly to wake the woman. He was doing his best not to scream and shout about quidditch because he didn't want to upset his sleeping mother.
He still bugged Katjaa every few minutes about it, though. Asking questions both serious and silly and being just an all around twelve year old, so normal.
At the camp grounds for the match, Katjaa told Benji and Rowan to find them a spot
HERP Tyler's Summer"Come on, mum!" Tyler said, practically dragging her mother through the train station. "Dad's waitin' fer us!" her Scottish accent thickening in her urgency. The Scotsman was excited to return to her home, despite school taking place in the country, because she loved visiting all the sights the beautiful country had to offer.
One of her favorites was Loch Ness, though she'd never really been there. Her stepfather had promised they could visit, since Nessie was real! A creature of the wizard world, deemed a monster by muggles. It was so unfair to Tyler, and she was devoted to learning about the creature. She wanted to grow up and continue protecting the beautiful magical beast like so many before her.
The train ride home gave Tyler time to think. Not just about Scotland, but also about other things. Things like her school year as of last. She'd met a sweet boy, an artist, who she'd grown rather fond of in the short period of time they'd had to get to know each other. She wanted to
HERP Themis' SummerIt was good to be home after a long and tiring school year. Themis padded barefoot down the hallway towards the dining room, where he was sure his mother was. He’d only just gotten home within the last few hours, and hadn’t yet had time to talk to her or his grandparents about his year, or at least what they hadn’t heard already in his long and informative letters home. He’d changed out of his uniform and was now in a pair of black shorts and a long shirt that almost covered his shorts completely. He pushed open the door to the dining room, where he found his mother and grandparents sitting, enjoying afternoon tea. He smiled, bounding over and sitting with them.
His mother was a petite woman, hardly taller than her son, with long, curly gold locks and eyes the same royal purple as Themis. His grandparents on the other hand looked nothing like either one of them. This was due to the fact that they weren't related at all. The elderly couple had taken in a young Eu
HERP Reed and Melody's SummerMelody had fallen asleep on her brother's shoulder on the train ride home. He had to shake her very gently to wake her when the train stopped at platform 9 3/4. Her eyes fluttered open and she smiled at Reed.
He smiled back, waving. She sat up and stretched and he waited for her attention to shift back to him before beginning to sign.
'Have a nice nap, Melody?' he signed with a small chuckle. She nodded and he ruffled her hair. 'Well, come on. We're here.' he stood and grabbed both their trunks. Melody took a hold of her own and they exited the train. Their muggle parents were not waiting on the platform, still a bit nervous about traveling through an seemingly solid brick wall, even after five years of taking Reed to school.
They walked through the barrier, and there were their parents, waiting and staring eagerly at the wall. A few people probably gave them funny looks, but the musicians were just excited for their children to be home.
Melody immediately greeted them bo
HERP Dim's SummerDim Wit, or Gabriel as he had decided to start going by again, got off the scarlet Hogwarts Express to greet his waiting grandmother. He smiled upon seeing the women who he hadn't seen in months.
"Abuela!" He greeted cheerfully as he hugged her tight. The little old woman hugged him back with as much enthusiasm and force.
"Gabriel, mi nieto." She spoke in spanish. "It is so good to see you." She held his face in her hands. Gabe chuckled, pulling away and holding her hands in his.
"So, Abuela, what're we doing this summer?" He asked, knowing it was always an adventure with Consuela Wright, even in her old age. She smiled, a twinkle in her eyes.
"We are going to Spain!" She exclaimed excitedly. She gripped his hands tighter as she grinned. Gabe grinned back.
"That's great!" He said as he lifted his trunk and they left quickly.
They were traveling by portkey, Abuela found it safer than muggle transportation. They arrived in the late afternoon. It was beautiful. Gabe carried his bags
I Love John EgbertI love John Egbert more than anyone in the world. Even more than my asshole brother, Dirk. That's saying something because I love that asshole a hell of a lot. I love John a thousand times more, though. I love everything about him. I love his eyes and the way he squints at me when I take off his glasses. I love his hair and how soft it is when I run my fingers through it. I love his body and the way it moves to meet my touch when we hug or kiss. I love his over bite and the little lisp it gives him.
John Egbert is perfect in every single way. I could never find a flaw in him. Everything he points out on himself I find more beautiful than the last. I know his every mole and every scar and every birthmark. I know his body better than I know my own. I explored that beautiful skin so many times and I would love to so many more.
John Egbert is my everything. He is my sunshine, who gives me light to see by the daytime. He is my lovely moon, who shines brilliantly in the night. He is my lover
HE-RP Cozette's SummerSummertime for Cozette started out pleasant, what with her and her siblings' birthday falling shortly after holidays began. Her mother spoiled them like normal, many presents and the largest cake Cozette had ever seen. The young sweetheart was sure to give abundant thanks for her presents and lots of hugs. Their father was not present for the occasion, which Cozette had really wished for, but she didn't hold it against him. She never did. A card arrived a day late, which didn't seem to make the other members of her family happy, but Cozette smiled genuinely and kept the card for herself, leaving it propped up on her bedside table.
She used it as a way to keep thinking of him even when he wasn't home, like she did many of the things he sent home that her brother or mother might throw away. She missed him, being the daddy's girl she had always been, but she understood that he had an important job in the ministry so he had to travel. It seemed to upset her mother in a way more than missin
HERP Payton's SummerPayton wasn't all that excited for summer vacation. While most kids were excited to be out of school so they could sleep in and all sorts of other stuff, he was returning to a home he hated. Probably not the only child who felt this way about his family, but he knew no others who could sympathise with him. He could probably make friends; he'd enjoy making friends, but he chose to stay on the safe side and stay alone and focus on school so he didn't have to worry about whether or not his family would approve of the social status of the people he chose to hang around. He already got enough crop for still being in contact with his oldest brother, the only person in his family he didn't despise and think was a backwards, bigoted asshole.
Merlin, Payton hated his family. He didn't want to spend summer at his dreary old house. He didn't want to stay in his dreary old room. He didn't want to deal with his father and the brother who was always kissing his ass just so he'd get the en
HERP Dakota's SummerSummer was a sad time for Dakota Audley. It seemed just as she was getting used to school and making friends, she even got a boyfriend, she had to go home. Despite her weary heart, though, she gladly returned to her loving grandmother.
Cybil Audley was a spry old lady of fifty-eight. She had light blue eyes, and her once dark brunette hair was now silver with few streaks of that original chocolate brown. She was hardly taller than her granddaughter, probably only a few inches off. Dakota would probably surpass the lady's height by the time she graduated school. Cybil was waiting on platform nine and three quarters when Dakota got off the train. With arms open wide she cheerfully greeted the young Gryffindor, who had yet to change out of her uniform. Noticing this, Cybil pat the girl's arm and smiled.
"Let's get home so you can change and we can launder that uniform of yours." she said softly. Dakota nodded in agreement and off they were, her trunk floating along behind them until they
