Rose’s Strawberry Army

There’s a lot of evidence to suggest that at one point, Rose Quartz had a Strawberry army. Let’s explore a few aspects of this idea.

First, just like how the other Crystal Gem’s designs are based on basic shapes (squares for Garnet, triangles for Pearl, circles for Amethyst), Steven’s design is based on hearts. In fact, a lot of things related to Rose show similar heart design, as can be seen in Lion’s head shape and nose. Strawberries fit into this theme very nicely, since they are little heart-shaped fruits.

Steven has also shown a particular fondness for strawberries as a food. In “Together Breakfast” the placement of the strawberry on top of the pancakes is given special attention, not just by Steven but also by the shift in music. In “Open Book” when Connie complains that the wedding cake was described for fifty pages, Steven discounts the cake by saying, “That cake was worthy of twenty pages, tops! There weren’t even strawberries on it!” This affinity for strawberries is likely a holdover from his mom’s personality.

It’s no accident that the gem battlefield is overgrown with wild strawberries, as we first see it in “Serious Steven.” In “Watermelon Steven” we learned that Rose Quartz had the ability to grow sentient plants that, in Garnet’s words, “lived to fight.” If her plant of choice was strawberries, its very easy to believe that when they died in battle, they would drop a lot of seeds, so that after thousands of years, their descendants would be there growing wild.

Look at Amy’s Shirt. In the bottom picture Reagan and Amy appear to be breaking up, they’re both crying and Amy pulls away from the kiss. In the top picture Amy is wearing the same shirt. Amy is crying, Karma is comforting her, and appears to be smiling. My thoughts are that Reagan and Amy break up and then Amy goes to Karma right after to seek comfort and Karma is happy that Reagan is gone. This could be what allows Karmy to happen later in the season and could even be the beginning of the prom arc since Amy is not taking Reagan to prom.

Larry/Elounor Predictions (March 24 - April 3)

This is going to sound really crazy but I’ve been having strange feelings and weird dreams. I don’t care…call me crazy. But the date 3/24 keeps bothering me so I know something significant will go down.

March 24- One of these may happen: Eleanor will post something on Instagram and the number of people she is following will decrease. / Lottie will post an old photo of her and Eleanor but it might be in black & white, with the caption having to do with “apologies” or “gonna miss you,” who knows….

I just know something important is on March 24 (tomorrow)

March 27- Zayn will confront rumors and tweet about coming back to 1D

March 27/28 - Louis will tweet around/near the same time Harry does

March 29 - Harry will use song lyrics in a tweet and Louis will favorite it

March 30- Leaked Larry photos and an Elounor article.

April 1- Harry will tweet a joke (possibly to Louis)

April 3- Break up rumors will cease / Larry Stylinson will be confirmed

Kurt and Blaine moved to New York where Kurt finished his studies at NYADA while Blaine attended NYU’s Steinhardt school and worked with John Simpkins to create a new musical that ran for two weekends at the Loewe Theater and bought him plenty of industry attention. After graduation, Kurt landed a few Off-Off Broadway roles but finally found his niche combining his love of fashion and his training in theatre to become the most in-demand costume designer in the business, creating costumes that not only look fierce, but are actually comfortable for the performers to wear. (Having been on both sides of the footlights helped.) He won his first Tony Award for costume design at age 30. Blaine, meanwhile, built a network of young singers and began writing original musicals and song cycles that they (and he) could perform. While he’s never had a long-running hit, his songs are frequently heard in cabarets and piano bars, and both men are highly regarded in their fields.
If There Was More...

Right now it doesn’t seem like we’ll be getting more episodes of Red Band Society. I’m still hoping that Netflix or Amazon will pull through, but we’ll see. Anyhow, if there was a second season, there’s a few things I’m hoping would(’ve) happen(ed):

  • Leo: I want to know how Leo spent his Wish. I like to think he would’ve taken a trip somewhere with all of the Red Banders. Maybe it would be cliche, like Disneyland, but it would still make my heart happy. I don’t know if he’d survive this cancer. I hope he will. I think we would’ve seen Leo being supported in the way he supported others, and developing more as a person. Learning how to be Clark Kent.
  • Jordi: I think he has the surgery, keeps his leg, and comes out better than before. With friends this time, and family, and faith. I’d like to see him and his grandmother stay in the states and keep in touch with all his new friends. He and Leo and Dash are basically brothers.
  • Emma: Of course, I just want Emma to recover. I would love to see her fully recovered, happy and healthy. Returning to a home where she can feel at home, returning to school (and making friends there)! Of course she’d still do outpatient therapy for a while, and when she did she would visit Leo, and the other Red Banders (because once a Red Bander, always a Red Bander). She gets into the school of her dreams.
  • Dash: Finally gets his lung transplant! And gets to leave the hospital. He would still be the relaxed, wise, and talented guy we’ve grown to adore. I’d love to see him spending more time on his graffiti, maybe even studying art in college. I imagine he’d become something of a cult icon/local legend in LA. He comes back to Ocean Park for check-ins and to paint murals. Maybe he could even do a little art therapy?
  • Kara: Her body would not reject the heart. She has learned so much from being at OP, and I hope she would keep that with her. She doesn’t return to cheerleading at her school. She can still be quite the drama queen sometimes, and she’s tough as nails, but Kara uses her powers for good now (most of the time). She and Emma hang out often, to the shock of their respective friends. I want to see her go to Paris someday.
  • Charlie: He would be doing so well. His parents reconcile, and he’s recovering nicely. He pays visits to Red Banders still at the hospital, especially Leo. The two of them would get to be even better friends now that Charlie can talk back. Oh, and he looks out for Nurse Jackson, too.
  • Staff: Nurse Jackson continues to be awesome. She starts to sing more often- maybe even lands some sort of side-work doing that? But Ocean Park is still her place. Kenji deserves a promotion. I want him to be happy, whatever that entails. The same goes for Brittany- she deserves to feel happy and to feel like she belongs. I haven’t decided if that involves Dr McAndrew or not. They really left it open ended. And Dr McAndrew learns to keep his ego in check. I’d like to see him save a life again and remember that he’s still a good doctor.

So, those are my thoughts. Submit your own in my askbox/submission and I might post them!

gUYS YOU KNOW WHAT THIS MEANS???? HE DOESN’T SNEAK IN??? MEANING CONNOR’S DAD MUST ALLOW HIM TO SEE CONNOR EVENTUALLY??? AND CONNOR HOLDS HIS HAND AND LOOKS AT THE BLUE NAIL POLISH??????? AND THEY SNUGGLE IN BED TOGETHER???????? but then HE’S CRYING AFTERWARDS???? ABOUT LOSING A FRIEND??????? SO MAYBE CONNOR IS BEING SENT AWAY???????? WE JUST DON’T KNOW. BUT LET US AT LEAST FIND SOLACE IN KNOWING THAT CONNOR’S DAD SOFTENS AT LEAST A LITTLE AND LETS JUDE SEE BAE BEFORE WHATEVER HAPPENS MAKES HIM CRY wait maybe connor’s dad dOESN’T let him in and then when lena arrives she’s like adam dude come on man please #jonnor4life and he’s like fINE and THEN THEY SNUGGLE that’d be best. end with a positive note for ONCE IN YOUR LIVES. DAMN YOU PAIGE. DAMN YOU BREDEWEG. DON’T LET US DOWN

just some more thoughts . . .

1. I have a feeling that TVD is going to get Lost-esque with this cure plot in the sense that I believe Elena will take the cure and because the promos have hinted that something is wrong with the cure, she will fall into a coma or something and during that coma, there will be a flash-sideways/alternate reality type vision she will experience in which she is a human and has chosen Stefan and everything is wonderful while her vampire choice will remain Damon. 

2. I ship Bamon and I ship Bonkai and I understand that opposing ships are going to, well, oppose one another but lately my dashboard has been full of both fandoms complaining about being targeted by the other and I just need it all to stop. Like every single ship ever *especially* on TVD, neither one and neither man is perfect (far from it in fact). I like BonKai because I like that a man is obsessing over Bonnie, I like that a man can’t think straight because he so desperately wants to get into her good graces, and despite hating the fact that JP had to mark Kai with the good ole TVD “Redemptive Villain” stamp, I like that that relationship still has potential for Bonnie to be selfish in it, for her to explore her sexuality and her darker impulses, basically Bonnie runs the show and it’s awesome to see. I like Bamon because I think their push-pull is different from what TVD usually gives us with those kinds of dynamics. Bonnie doesn’t take any of Damon’s shit and she does it in a way Elena never could not even in seasons 1-3. Bonnie speaks her mind with Damon, she reads him to filth, she challenges him to prove her wrong or right, she has a ferocity with Damon that we rarely get to see her exude with other characters. And I like both ships because Bonnie runs these men; sure they keep screwing up but they know it, she lets them know it, and they come back contrite, respectful and vaguely afraid of her power and her sass and it’s awesome.

3. Steroline having no humanity served no purpose save to keep them from actually being in a relationship, which is unnecessary. 

5.16 Predictions

As much as this show frustrates me, I recently got my Team Delusional enthusiasm back and I started thinking about future episodes and what could potentially happen in the season finale.

I think that in 5.16, Daryl will either go off on his own on a run or go with other people but get separated. Either way he’ll run into trouble in the form of another violent group (I’m not sure if it’ll be Negan’s group or not).

Now either the people who were on the run see he’s in trouble and go back to Alexandria to get help (in the form of C@rol) or C@rol gets worried about how long Daryl’s been gone and she goes looking for him herself.

Meanwhile things are not looking good for Daryl and it looks like he may get hurt or killed (even though we know they’d never kill him) but then in that moment a figure comes out of the woods (like when Daryl brought Noah back to the church) and it’s Beth (potentially with Morgan). I think that in 5.13 we’ll get a coda showing that she’s alive (since that was the episode where a bloody blonde survivor was spotted) and I think that she’s the surprise guest on Talking Dead.

I think the real surprise for the viewer in 5.16 will be the death of one of the original group members-C@rol. I think that Beth will try to help Daryl (and moderately will-I want it to be emphasized just how physically and emotionally strong Beth has gotten in the time she’s been away from the group) but the group has them cornered (like Joe’s group did with Rick, Carl, and Michonne). I think at this point C@rol will show up (dressed like a soccer mom but carrying the large gun she arrived at Alexandria with) and help save Beth and Daryl (like Beth saved her life).

I think that during this altercation there will be a moment similar to when that guy was holding a knife to Carl’s throat except this time it will be Beth. As was speculated for 5A, C@rol will make the ultimate sacrifice and save Beth (a redemption of sorts) while she ultimately dies.

I think that there will be a conversation between C@rol and Daryl about how she tried to change and go back to who she was before the apocalypse (that’s why she started dressing and acting normal) but she realizes that that’s not who she is. Being this tough, hardened woman is who she really is now but she doesn’t want to be that but there’s nothing she could do. This brings me back to when C@rol said to Daryl how they can’t save people anymore but in fact she was able to help Beth and Daryl and ultimately redeem and save herself (as Beth said to Tyreese in the hallucinations, it’s better this way).

I think that Beth will be standing behind Daryl silently and tearfully watching the exchange and she could even offer to be the one to kill C@rol (kind of ironic because she was the one to save her at Grady) but Daryl tells her that he’ll do it and he proceeds to take out Beth’s knife (the one that C@rol gave him) and tearfully kills C@rol so she doesn’t turn.

I think that Daryl will have such a mix of emotions (from being happy that Beth’s back but being devastated that C@rol’s dead) and I think that this is what will make Beth and Daryl’s reunion bitter sweet. I think that the episode could either end with them in the field (or wherever they are) and Daryl crying in Beth’s arms or they could even take it one step further and have Daryl carry C@rol’s body back to Alexandria with Beth in toe which would give us a moment similar to the end of Coda but with so many mixed emotions from the group.

I think that this would leave the audience wondering about what would happen in season 6 and how the group is going to deal with all this and I think that Norman and Melissa would be the guests on Talking Dead after the finale to help everyone deal with what happened.

anonymous asked:

Why does everyone think Louis is going to LA? Is it only him that's gonna go or Liam and Niall are to? :)

It’s wishful thinking based on Louis’ past behavior during the last several breaks in 2013-2014. We assume that Harry and Louis spend a lot of time in LA together during their time away from tour (with Louis remaining unseen and officially in the UK).

In 2014 Louis used to spend a few weeks during breaks in the UK being occasionally seen at DRFC football games / meeting fans in London / Doncaster etc. to confirm his location. Then he would disappear for a few weeks, while his Twitter posted regularly about watching UK TV programs / football matches between British teams etc. After a few weeks he reappeared in the UK (sporting a suspicious tan) at a football game or in some other place.

However, in March 2014 and January 2015 Louis and Liam publicly went to LA to write songs. Since they are busy working on writing the next album, it would be logical for them to go to LA this time as well to write music (and for Louis to stay with Harry).

I think that Louis didn’t go to LA at the very beginning of this break due to his UK commitments (BITB, upcoming football game on April 19). After this Sunday, he is free to go wherever he wants.

The question is whether he will go to LA under the radar (alone) or publicly (with Liam) this time.
