Do you think when Lapis said "I almost drown a lot of people" that she was making an excuse for defending that she doesn't remember Connie or was she actually telling the truth?
Hi there! I’m thinking it’s a little bit of both. In this ask, I talk a little about how Lapis’ words don’t really match up with her actions. While her words carry a hint of threat, her actions are the opposite, with her slouching, turned away, and looking down.
And the words imply, “I’m dangerous; don’t push me or put me on the spot because I have the power to hurt you,” but at the same time, she doesn’t want to be that person who bullies people and hurts people because she can. That was the struggle she faced in Alone At Sea, all this time she thought shewas just doing something just, and then she realised she was disproportionately using force in hurting Jasper. It wasn’t about self-defence anymore, it became her way of releasing anger. And she wasn’t liking the person she was becoming.
So it’s a fast way to dismiss Connie’s question. But as you say, it’s a threat that must have some basis. That Lapis knows to drown human beings, means she knows they need to breathe air and aren’t like fish. That means she’s probably come up against human beings before. Whether there were loads of people she almost drowned for a variety of reasons, or there were barely a handful, is something we don’t know, because of the circumstances and because of the intent behind Lapis’ saying that.
Lamar and Zuke also did Chile Tid which I love yet they're my least favorite boarders. I really wonder what is going on behind the scenes. Raven/Paul did Crack the Whip, which was awful, but gave us Monster Reunion which I adore.
Yeah it blows my mind that those two did Chille Tid. I’m assuming Zuke was more restricted in what they could do as it was their first episode. Which might explain why it’s good lol.
Raven and Paul’s art quality is so inconsistent it’s terrible, Crack the Whip was good from a writing standpoint (at least imo) but the art was awful. Monster reunion had some super wonky art, but the storytelling was amazing and I like how they drew Centi!
whatever you are physically…male or female, strong or weak, ill or healthy - all those things matter less than what your heart contains. if you have the soul of a warrior, you are a warrior. all those other things, they are the glass that contains the lamp, but you are the light inside.
I just pictured Tessa Gray seeing Alec Lightwood sitting with Magnus Bane and for a split second she thought she saw her husband laughing with his old friend and Jem asks why she’s crying but then he sees it to and he smiled softly and wipes away Tessa’s tears and I just died a little
And Will, who had words for every occasion, opened his mouth and closed it on silence, and instead reached for her to pull her against him. Her wrap fell onto the stairs, but his arms were warm around her, and his mouth hot against hers as he slanted his head down to kiss her. He tasted like snowflakes and wine, like winter and Will and London.
