The Big Four » Elsa’s Coronation
As he passed over Arendelle, Jack picked up a cold, strange sensation, and knew it had nothing to do with his powers. He gathered the Big Four to share his discovery. Rapunzel and Merida perk up at the mention of Arendelle, because they were both invited to the coronation of the soon-to-be Queen Elsa. While the girls would waltz right into the castle, the guys would have to sneak in. “Won’t be a problem for me, of course,” Jack tries to joke, but the rest of the Big Four knew better than to bring up the fact that he was still invisible to many.
Finally at the Coronation, Hiccup tries to keep Toothless in the shadows and at bay. Jack walks around, searching for any sign of trouble. Merida struggles with the dress Queen Elinor had her wear, but tries to talk to as many people as possible (including Princess Anna herself); and Rapunzel, forgetting a little about the task at hand, dances the night away.
Jack grew impatient, wondering where that cold feeling had gone. It was odd that he ever felt it at all, as the cold never bothered him anyway. Suddenly from across the room, someone yells, “I said enough!” and that cold feeling wells up in his chest as Queen Elsa’s ice powers are revealed. Jack was left speechless, not because her powers were similar to his, but because out of all the people she could’ve looked at, out of everyone in the room, her eyes had landed on him.
"I’m telling you, she looked right at me!" Jack insisted, throwing his hands up in exasperation. "She saw me. She knew I was there. She … she believed in me."
The World of Teenage Wasteland
I tend to take cameraphone pictures as I wander around the city. Lately, I’ve been sharing the ones directly relating to Teenage Wasteland on Patreon, but I wanted to give Tumblr friends a look at one or two of them too. It’s been a fun way for me to translate what’s in my head for people.
Story: Teddy ticked his gaze up as they crossed the main floor, eyes tracing the familiar stars carved into Grand Central’s high arched ceiling. The sky was backwards, inverted—constellations flipped as if he were looking down at them reflected in smooth water rather than up at the nighttime sky. He remembered one teacher at his old Episcopal school claiming it was intended to show the sky the way God saw it. A bored tour guide once admitted that it was probably just a mistake. Teddy liked to imagine it was something else—a reinvention of the heavens, a deliberate deviation threaded through with defiance. These are the heavens as I see them, the artists could have said. Try to tell me otherwise.
Khirsah: My friend told me about the stars being backwards once and it stuck with me. Every time I pass through Grand Central, I look up and wonder.
Story: It turned out Teddy’s weird thing against taxidermy extended from whales to all animals, though he seemed more suspicious of the bison than nervous. The funny thing was, he was sort of making Billy nervous, too, but in an enjoyable way, like how ghost stories sent shivers up your spine. Standing shoulder-to-shoulder in front of a bright exhibit on African gazelle—which had looked totally normal to Billy the last six dozen times he’d been dragged to the museum over his lifetime—Teddy leaned in and murmured, “It kind of looks like they’re creeping closer,” into the shell of Billy’s ear, voice warm and gusting, and Billy had to grip the railing tighttighttight, knuckles going white in the darkness. “Don’t blink,” Teddy whispered. “Blink and you’re dead. They are fast. Faster than you can believe. Don’t turn your back. Don’t look away. And don’t blink.” Billy stared down the gazelle, hitting Teddy’s chest with the back of his hand. “I can’t believe you’re Doctor Who’ing me right now, you giant nerd.”
Khirsah: The Natural History Museum is one of my favorite places to visit. I’m convinced that some of the exhibits are intentionally funny. (The skunk!)
