"Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower."

This beauty is my way of thanking everyone for their thoughts and well wishes. Even when the leaves change and start to fall, I know deep in my heart, I can count on you all.

I let the Tarot guide me to this video choice. *shrug* Fitting, I should think.

That graphic is so pretty. <3

The video was pretty cool, too. Love that they included Cosima & Helena from Orphan Black. And the song was timely as my kid is going to see Fall Out Boy this weekend. :D

That museum sounds pretty awesome. A great way to get rid of the things keeping you from gaining your closure and helping others at the same time.

Would have been useful to me in the 90s. XD

Another combining of prompts. :)
From this one I used the Autumn flower/leaves bit and the Broken Relationships Museum...not entirely sure where that's going for the storyline yet, but I'm sure I can run with it more.

a bit from the longer work in my RP setting, between Shades Alvarez (from Luke Cage) and his father...with mentions of Bruce Wayne ;) No warnings or spoilers necessary.

What a stupid thing to build an art exhibition around.

Shades pushed through park exhibit that had been erected in this corner of the autumn festival having just arrived back in town from yet another errand for Graves. It was vaguely irritating that the man had turned him into his personal errand boy, but better errand runner than a glorified babysitter to that creepy, silent kid.

The collection of love letters, of personal objects that were the wreckage of relationships that had reached the end of their road, were the sorts of things Shades found awkward and uncomfortable. He was not the sort to express his feelings, not easily at least, and romance he considered to be out of his field of play. The very thought of making a public display of anything so intimate and private, either to be laughed at by others or pitied, or even just shared for bonding in commiseration, made his skin crawl. Physical intimacy was an easy thing…sex came easy. Even playing at the bonds of a relationship was easy in the context of getting what he wanted from someone. But true, emotional intimacy. Nope. That wasn’t happening. And anyone who had the nerve to bare themselves this way as part of this Broken Relationships traveling museum was out of their minds.

He could have walked around it, gone around the park, to get to his destination. Hell, he could have driven, or taken a cab. He could have pushed to get Graves driver to deliver him to the hospital’s door. But after a morning of phone calls with one supplier after another, sorting out delivery issues that seemed to have created a backlog in production and distribution during his absence, Shades needed the walk, needed the air. Needing that time to clear his head, maybe he should have taken the long way around the park, since he knew all of this was here, the crowds of people enjoying what could be one of the last pleasant weather Saturdays of the year, and this stupid, uncomfortable display.

And yet as he passed each display, he could not help but look.

It was either that or take the time to admire the second-spring colors of the autumn leaves on the trees above, the yellows, reds, and oranges that were evidence of his father’s favorite time of year. The only time of year Shades really noted the change of season…the only time, every year, he would be besieged by fleeting thoughts of the man he had struggled to leave behind.

This year, as the color shift began, that struggle was worse than ever.

Kinda sad, but well written.
