The Playground Meme

The Playground Meme

Most of us can remember the playground from our younger days. Swings, slides, monkey bars, merry-go-rounds and all manner of other things to play on and fall off of. Well here's another playground to enjoy. A big, brand new one filled with all those fun things you remember and new ones too. Are you a kid enjoying a day running around or maybe someone older trying to recapture youth? Either way, have fun! And don't worry, parents. There are benches under some nice shady trees to relax on.

-Tag in with name and canon in the subject line.
-Tag others.
-Enjoy the place! Try not to fall and scrape knees or eat wood chips.

[He's not... entirely clear on what this stuff is for.]
more_than_words: (bonds like this)

who could resist?

{well... he looks it so she can't help but stop on her way past the playground, arms full of groceries to ask:}

Are you lost?
apocralyptic: (yeah?)

whee! he hardly ever gets tagged :)

[personal profile] apocralyptic 2012-03-15 01:46 am (UTC)(link)
[Coin considers this question very seriously for a few moments, then looks up at her with his wide golden eyes.]

more_than_words: (how dear)

awww - how could Tifa resist?

{she's used to a lot of different colored eyes but gold is a new one. She thinks they look very pretty though and it would hardly be the strangest thing she's ever seen, not even coming close. She'll set one of her bags down on the bottom of the nearby slide and scoot down a little so they're eye to eye.}

Maybe I can help. What are you looking for?
apocralyptic: (old for his age)

obviously not very well! :D

[personal profile] apocralyptic 2012-03-15 02:10 am (UTC)(link)
I'm not looking for anything. I'm lost because I don't know where I am now.

[She seems nice, but Coin can't help being a little suspicious. Most of the people who have been helpful to him in the past... haven't actually been particularly helpful to him.]
more_than_words: (to gaudy day denies.)

obviously - lol

[personal profile] more_than_words 2012-03-15 02:30 am (UTC)(link)
Mm. Well, right now you're at a playground near Sector Seven.

{ie. welcome to the slums, kid because why not?}
apocralyptic: (this is true)

[personal profile] apocralyptic 2012-03-15 02:44 am (UTC)(link)
Play... ground. [Coin turns his intent gaze back to the apparently purposeless structures.] What is it for?
more_than_words: (of dark and bright)

[personal profile] more_than_words 2012-03-15 03:30 am (UTC)(link)
{that earns a blink and then her brows knit just a little over her eyes. How can a kid not know what a playground is? Granted, the one in front of them isn't that impressive an example but still...}

It's for - playing. Like swinging on the swings and going down the slide and running around. It's so kids have a fun place to go.
apocralyptic: (in black and white)

[personal profile] apocralyptic 2012-03-15 03:35 am (UTC)(link)
[We all have different areas of expertise. Other kids know about playgrounds, Coin knows about magic and horrible, world-shattering wars. At least it has a practical application?]

Ah. I suppose I could see that.
more_than_words: (and starry skies;)

[personal profile] more_than_words 2012-03-15 03:58 am (UTC)(link)
{considering she's been known to blow things up on occasion, Tifa might not be the best judge of important skills. She is however very sure that kids are supposed to be allowed to be kids. And knowing about playgrounds is an important part of that. The answer seems pretty obvious but she has to clarify:}

You've - never played on a playground before?
apocralyptic: (that's downright peculiar)

[personal profile] apocralyptic 2012-03-15 04:02 am (UTC)(link)
No? [At that, Coin looks a bit less like he's assessing everything he sees and more... defensive.]
more_than_words: (or softly lights)

[personal profile] more_than_words 2012-03-15 04:26 am (UTC)(link)
{oh. Well, luckily Tifa's a little bit used to blonds with that look on their faces so she recognizes it at least. She'll set her other bag down next to the first and crouch down in front of the boy so it's a little bit more comfortable for both of them.}

Mm. We should probably do something about that. You never know when it would come in handy to know about, after all.
apocralyptic: (this is true)

[personal profile] apocralyptic 2012-03-15 04:29 am (UTC)(link)
You want me to learn. About the playground.

[It's not a question; it's Coin considering the idea in case there should be something wrong with it.]
more_than_words: (home is in a child's laughter)

[personal profile] more_than_words 2012-03-15 04:50 am (UTC)(link)
{she'll give a little shrug because she's not going to force him into anything whether she thinks it's a good idea or not but she'll nod as well.}

It can't hurt. And since we're here anyway, we've got the time. I always thought the swings were kind of important.
apocralyptic: (wanderer by nature)

[personal profile] apocralyptic 2012-03-15 04:55 am (UTC)(link)
[It's not as if it could hurt him, and he doesn't see how it could hurt anyone else either. Slowly, Coin nods.]

Then I will try the swings.

[He sets out in the direction of the swingset like a tiny explorer, with resolute stride.]
more_than_words: (whose love is innocent!)

[personal profile] more_than_words 2012-03-15 05:29 am (UTC)(link)
{he looks so much like someone else she knows, looking as if he's taking on the entire world instead of an old swing set, that it makes her smile a little to herself before she straightens up and sets off after him. She thinks it makes him look slightly adorable but that's another thing she's gotten into the habit of not sharing with determined blonds. She'll let him work out the swings for himself unless he asks but she's there for when he does. If he's going to solve the mystery of the playground, she's going to be next to him in case he needs a bit of help with it.}
apocralyptic: (a place of old books)

[He knows a seat when he sees one, so he sits down in it. It's not the most comfortable ever, but it sways at the end of its chains and that is kind of nice...]
more_than_words: (to gaudy day denies.)

[personal profile] more_than_words 2012-03-17 08:17 am (UTC)(link)
{again, she swallows down the fact that he looks cute and instead she takes the swing next to his, sitting down comfortably and letting it sway on its own for a moment before giving a push with her toes. It's almost too low to the ground for her but not quite and when it comes back, she kicks off again with a little more force this time, repeating the process each time to earn some height. Looking for all the world as if she's doing it for herself and not as an example at all.}
