To Be TrustedThe day had started off gray and gloomy, and became progressively worse. By late afternoon, the dark clouds were finally starting to open up, allowing a drizzle, and then rain, to pour on anyone out in it—including Lapis and Peridot.To Be Trusted by supergeek17
"We need to find a place to stop," Peridot said from his place on Lapis' back, his voice right in her ear.
Lapis nodded in agreement, readjusting her hold on Peridot's legs. "Do you see any place?" She looked around them. They'd somehow wandered into an industrial area, and the odds of finding a shelter or a particularly friendly hotel or bed and breakfast were slight.
"Wherever," Peridot bit out. "Just—out of the rain."
The words were uncharacteristically short for him, and Lapis found that almost worrisome as she approached some of the buildings. Most of them were closed up tight, but one of them, in a more severe state of disrepair than its neighbors, was open, and Lapis darted inside just as thunder rumbled in the distance.
The building was

Steven's was the first friendly face Lapis had seen in so long—and god, how Lapis wished that he hadn’t been on the beach when they'd arrived. Now he was trapped here just as much as she was—
Her head shot up. No… Praying it was all a bad dream, she turned—and there Steven was, bright and happy despite having a wounded eye. A smaller gem, deep red in color, panicked and pacing, accompanied him, but Lapis couldn't bring herself to worry about it right now.
"Lapis, I can get you out!" Steven announced, reaching out toward the force field.
"Stop!" she cried, moving to stand—but even if she did, she wouldn't be able to keep him from hurting himself on the force field.
He stopped short of the humming yellow energy, and Lapis felt a little of her worries dissipate. He looked almost distressed for a moment, but then his smile returned. "It's okay, I can—"
"No—I don't want your help," she moaned. "Things are bad enough a
I totally never told you guys how my vacation went.
And the answer to that is okay. I came out to most of my family and they rolled with it—and made an actual effort to use my name, so Dad can take his "We've known you as Sarah for 24 years this is hard change for us" and shove it up his ass. I got to see my grandma again, which was… nice. Nice except for the fact that my maternal aunt's dogs had torn up the house to the point where it reeks of ammonia and the stench just gets into your clothes and it's hard to breathe. That sucked. I didn't see my cousins on my dead mum's side because despite plenty of advanced warning, no one could make the time to meet me. Which doesn't hurt my feelings bc I know the oldest would have started pulling her what you're doing is wroooooong thing… which is hilarious because she's not a very moral person according to the religion she would use to judge me. Y'know how Jesus called out the Pharisees who prayed loudly and in public because they thought it made them good Christians? Yeah it'd have been like that.
Really, I enjoyed my time with my dad's side of the family more. I went to one of my younger cousin's baseball games, I went to King's Island with two of my other guy cousins and rode my first proper roller coaster, I drove all over the place—
Oh and got into an accident. I was dicking around with my GPS and realized I was about to drive into someone's yard so I jerked the wheel to the side and ended up curbing it so hard I blew out the passenger side tires. Oopsies? Thankfully, I bought all the insurance I could handle so no harm no foul I guess.
Lately I've been dicking around and writing for the new round of the Hurt / Comfort Bingo. Not much else is going on, y'know?
