Easier Said Than Done

Chase, “This has been nice. Good idea for a date.”

Chase, “Though I’m surprised you willingly came on a picnic…”
Alister, “I was just thinking about our ‘picnic’ a couple years ago.”

Alister, “You remember. That time you accidentally confessed your love for me.”
Chase, “So young and foolish then.”

Alister, “Heh.”
Chase, “So just feeling nostalgic?”

Alister, “I suppose. I felt like I owed you a nice picnic like you had hoped for.”
Chase, “Well, thank you.”

Alister, “Though, honestly… I have a bit of an ulterior motive…”
Chase, “I was actually going to say the same thing.”

Alister, “You… you were?”
Chase, “Yes…”

Chase, “While I have you to myself, I was hoping we could talk about something.”
Alister, “Ok…”

Chase, “I don’t know if Edmund told you, but the clinic is shutting down.”
Alister, “What?! That’s terrible! Why??”

Chase, “Well, with the funding cuts going on…”
Alister, “Oh…”

Chase, “Also, Fenrys’s insurance for his sister has been cut.”
Alister, “I’m sorry to hear that.”

Chase, “As well as the programs I’m on. As a single mom.”
Alister, “Chase, I–“

Alister, “Can I do anything to help?”
Chase, “No, Alister, it’s a bit… more than that.”

Alister, “What do you mean…?”
Chase, “We… well…”

Chase, “We’ve been looking into moving.”
Alister, “Oh?”

Chase, “…Out of state.”
Alister, “Wh-what?”

Chase, “We can’t survive here anymore. Even Edmund is thinking about going.”
Alister, “But…”

Alister, “You can move in with me, Chase! We can get our own place! Just me, you and Violet!”
Chase, “Alister…”

Alister, “We can get married! It’ll be ok. I have plenty of money. I can support you.”
Chase, “. . .”

Chase, “I… I love you… but I can’t do that.”
Alister, “Why not?!”

Chase, “I can’t rush into marriage just because–“
Alister, “We’re not rushing! I– I have a ring! I was–“

Chase, “Oh, Alister…”

Alister, “Chase, please… I don’t want to lose you…”
Chase, “Why don’t you come with us?”

Alister, “. . .”

Chase, “Let me guess.”
Alister, “Sparrow. I… I can’t.”


Chase, “Look, Alister… I don’t expect you to leave your family behind for me, but I can’t leave mine behind either.”

Chase, “I love our little family, but Fenrys is also my family, and my only support system.”
Alister, “But…”

Chase, “And if leaving state means the best for both my families… then…”
Alister, “…Are we… breaking up?”

Chase, “And miss out on your awkward sexting and video chats?”

Chase, “If the economy recovers, maybe we’ll come back. Or maybe, after a while, you can join us. And there’s always visiting.”

Alister, “I… I don’t want to miss out on Violet growing up…”
Chase, “…I’m so sorry.”

Chase, “I love you, Alister.”

Alister, “I love you, too.”

…And Then Everybody’s Heads Exploded

this is a joint story between me and keishi, though she took like twice as many pics for it as i did lol

at the end of this is a video answering a few questions regarding recent story stuffs (and just random questions), and it also has a couple of very important announcements. make sure you watch it. i was also up most of the night editing it, and had to cut out a lot of questions to get it to fit without splitting it into two videos. then at like 2am i was like YES I’M DONE and then i realized i hadn’t come up with a title for the photostory yet. woooooooo.

Edmund, “Ah! It’s Alister!”

Soft and Cuddly Like a Tank

please forgive fenrys’s wonky eyes – i was pressed for time, and must have knocked the stem when i was dressing him. please also forgive the bad lighting. yesterday was the first day of school, so i didn’t get a chance to take pics until after the kids were in bed, and then the light went sooner than i expected it to. x__x — keishi-chan

Hostile Hospitality

NOTE: This has been copied from its original post verbatim, including misc jabber before/after.

the photostories will be jumping in time a bit. obviously this is the day chase is leaving, not the extra day she got off work. i’d love to be filling in all the gaps but i’d also like for meryll to stop being pregnant sometime before she STARTED being pregnant :B

sorry these pics get kind of dark

Chase, “I think I’m going to break up with Alister.”
Seraph, “What? Have you gone nuts?”
