This prompt ends today, July 17! So if you hurry, you might just have time to squeak it in! ;D ....maybe?
I... I just....yeah. Here we go.
Ever since Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory exploded, the weather just hasn't been the same.
No one was hurt! Everyone was out. The factory runs itself automatically on the weekends nowadays, which . . . actually may have been a contributing factor.
Rumors abound as to how the explosion came about. They tried to make too big a batch of Everlasting Gobstoppers. The chocolate river ran too thick and gooped up the works. The Fuzzy Lifting Drinks had too much lift. Charlie's successor was a complete moron.
Regardless how it happened, the explosion caused the Wonkavision teleporter to disintevaporate the entire factory into the atmosphere, and now, well . . .
Those pink clouds? Yeah, that's not the result of a sunset. Its cotton candy, and who knows what else, trapped up there. Sometimes real clouds cover the fake ones and keep them cool. Other days, the fake clouds bear the full brunt of the sun, and drip sticky goo all over everything.
The worst is when it rains. Or maybe, the best is when it rains? Water and candy blend together to make a vaguely sticky mixture of flavored rain that you always manage to taste, even if you keep your mouth closed. The flavor changes depending on what's in the cloud over you.
Oh look, it's raining now. Let's go outside and sample it, shall we?
Hmm, three course flavored gum flavored rain today. Delightful. Except now I want pie.
I have nothing to say. Except thank you, Wikipedia, for helping me remember what candy was in the movie. XD
