I'm baaaack! Went to Tokyo for a trip last week so we could have one last Disneyland/DisneySea visit (plus stop by to see the grandparents and cousins) and it was so much fun! The girls were more jaded this time though- they realized we didn't actually go to space on Star Tours, although they still think C-3PO is a terrible pilot. XDDD It was our first time to see the parades/shows/fireworks at night because they finally had the stamina to stay up! We'll definitely be back to DisneySea again because we were all exhausted and couldn't enjoy the park as much because of aching feet/grumpiness. Plus husband and I loved the atmosphere of each theme area- they paid a lot of attention to detail, and it was pretty nifty. My favorite was the Steampunk vibe of "Mysterious Island" and the detailed mosaics in the "Mermaid's Lagoon".

One thing: when we were on 20000 Leagues Under the Sea they stopped the ride due to some kind of emergency and we were stuck in the "submarine" for almost an hour until the staff came to get us! We had to climb out via a ladder and then walk on the rafters/rigging to a back entrance, with the ride displays below us, so the kids had all the magic/4th wall illusions taken out of that ride. Oh well. It was kind of cool to see anyway, although I wish they had compensated us a little better for the lost time: we got "priority ride" passes that were good for only unpopular rides, so we didn't use them. :(

Caught up on most of my shows now too! Grey's just got kind of a bzuh? reaction out of me mostly because spoilers for Grey's, iZombie and TO )

Summary: Caroline reflects on life without Tyler; Tyler and Katherine disagree. 

A bird in the cage; a slant on the subject )
He’s already having second thoughts- Katherine makes him uncomfortable. She’s waiting outside the bank at the airport and he doesn’t bother to ask how she found him. He just sighs, adjusts the weight of his pack and trudges up to the bench where she’s sitting, legs crossed. She smells annoyed, and her foot is bobbing up and down in this antsy way.

“I thought you were trying not to get caught.”

“Figured I’d need cash and the account’s under a fake name. He can’t track what he doesn’t know about.”

“Betting on him not finding anything tied to you is foolhardy. You’re a vampire, Tyler. Take what you need from your prey and then erase the evidence. The best targets are older- they’ve had more time to save up. Not quite as tasty though,” she adds, wrinkling her nose.

He frowns and gives her a disgusted look. “I’m not stealing people’s money.”

She gives him a derisive smirk before slinging her leather bag over her shoulder. “Judgey, judgey. Don’t you know how the Lockwoods got so rich? I’ll give you a clue- most Founding families doubled their land holdings in 1864 after the vampires were all entombed.”


“And you think your trust fund dividends come from corporations without sweatshops and factories that pay slave wages? Don’t be so naïve.”

“…Did Mason…?” he starts, surprised, before stopping and shaking his head. “…Look, I’m just trying to do what’s right.”

She tilts her head and smiles. “And I’m just pointing out that there are almost no “right” choices.”

“…Fine. But I’m not going to take money from little old ladies when I’ve got my own.”

She stands up and steps into his personal space so he has to take a step back. “You’re immortal, Tyler. You think your trust fund will last forever? Vampires have been doing this for centuries. In fact, the Mikaelsons take a certain pride in stealing from royalty.”

He makes a face when he hears that, but he gives her a look and explains. “I’m not living it up- my mom taught me how to manage money, okay? And maybe she didn’t think about the ethics or whatever, but I guess I can.”

“Being a stick in the mud can be fatal, you know. Things tend to snap under pressure,” she snarls.

He gives her a cocky smile, meeting her eyes. “Well, you’re only stuck with me until we get Klaus. And I won’t need to visit another bank for a while, so hopefully this’ll be quick. Where are we going, anyway?”

She exhales. “Canada. Easier to blend in and then get back across the border. Are you going to whine about morals again if I compel us into first class?”

He shrugs and looks down at her luggage. “Probably empty seats there anyway. You want a hand with these?”

That makes her smile despite herself. She tilts her head and gives him an appraising look, considering.

“You’ll do, Lockwood.”

A/N: Just wanted to say that this fic will probably end up AU, in case that isn’t your cup of tea. And sorry, I can’t seem to keep myself from making social commentary in my chaptered fics. :P

nrgburst: (kol drinking)
So I filled my first prompt ever today. LOL I almost never write AU, but the idea was just too good:
