Violet Baudelaire was the eldest Baudelaire child.
She was 14 years old, right-handed, had a real knack for inventing and building unusual devices. When Violet Baudelaire tied her hair up like that, it was a sure sign that the pulleys, levers and gears of her inventing mind were working at top speed.

my best attempt at a masterlist of every chengsey moment in trk
ch. 6: henry calling gansey “richard-man” adj;fdkd
the slightly disturbing fact that henry told gansey his tailgate was open because he didn’t want to draw attention to the fact that there was a little girl curled up in the cargo space of the camaro….. like buddy what if gans was kidnapping her. now youre an accomplice.
ch. 12: “henry cheng stood before him, all hair and smile, his eyes intense.”
basically the mere fact that henry notices that gansey is having a panic attack/ptsd flashback and goes to help him in the middle of a crowd
“once, you got me coffee,” henry said. “when i was losing my mind. consider the favor returned.”
one of the things that helps gansey come out of his attack is making eye contact with henry
henry saying “there he is” when gansey calms down
ch 17: “both henry and gansey were kings in their respective territories”
gansey thinking about litchfield house: “to dine in fairyland was to be forced to stay there forever or to pine for it once you left” literally what the fuck gansey
“yo, yo, dick gansey” im so embarrassed for henry
“[litchfield house] did not look remotely like a place that might host a party. it looked like a place old ladies might go to die and remain undiscovered until the neighbors noticed a strange smell. it was utterly at odds with what gansey knew of henry.” ok i lied, that’s barely chengsey but i love it anyway.
gansey reflecting that he understands henry (more than blue does)
gansey reminding blue that henry’s car is electric bc he wants her to like his boyfriend
henry is fine with blue being at the toga party even though no other casual acquaintances are invited, just bc gansey vouches for her
ch. 29: ok honestly………. the whole chapter
BUT for the sake of thoroughness… henry calling gansey “junior”
henry: “i tucked in the children [after you left] and read them stories but they kept asking after you” and gansey LAUGHS
gansey is cagey about explaining why they left and henry lets it pass
flirting via knowledge of what happened in 1751
GANSEY 👏 KNEW 👏 THAT 👏 HENRY 👏 WAS 👏 RIGHT 👏 BY 👏 THE 👏 ZING 👏 OF 👏 FEELING 👏 IN 👏 HIS 👏 HEART 👏
and yes this is bc henry knows he’s looking for a “test of mettle”
“that feeling of being known. not in a superficial way, but in something deeper and truer.”
gansey: “what is my prize if i pass?” 👀
“the prize is your honor, mr. gansey.” doubly known. triply known.
gansey doesn’t know how to feel about being “so accurately pegged” 👀
“am i being kidnapped now?” oh, gansey. you shameless flirt (with bad timing)
“this is ganseylike too, yes?” which part? “secrets.”
gansey is “prepared to deploy” any combination of his fake, polite responses to heavy moments, but he understands that henry doesn’t need or want this from him, so he can just respond as his real, genuine self
both deeply traumatized at the age of 10?? is that kind of symmetry romantic?? (no but im including it)
“do you trust me?” [gansey’s dramatic ass thinks about how he intuitively knows who to trust] “yes.”
THEY HOLD HANDS!!!!!!! for a second when henry scares him with robobee but still!!!!
ch. 30: “richardman” again
henry telling gansey to breathe while literally cupping gansey’s hands between his
“be afraid and happy” the quote that defined a generation
henry saying “there he is” when gansey starts breathing again 💖
more touching, then “easy, mr. gansey”
“robobee, find great hair”
henry matching gansey’s dramatic ass like “i think we have to decide if we trust each other or not… i think this is the moment in our young friendship”
“are you saying your secrets are to my secrets as an automobile is to a carbonated beverage?” henry !!!!!!
“magical artifacts, bro”
henry: “are you collapsing? are you fine? i thought we were conversing”
gansey reflecting that henry is the closest thing to a soul-twin he’s ever found
“Get. Your. Number.” HENRY ASDJFKD;F
gansey noticing “henry’s wickedly cut eyebrows”
this part made me lose my shit….. gansey thinks that, even after all of the actual magic he’s seen, henry cheng is just as magical as everything else he’s found on this journey god help me
“because i’m overfull on secrets and underfed on friends” henry :’(
again, gansey bein gay…… thinking “henry’s eyes were lively and ferocious”
ch. 37: “[henry] had no real way to explain how he felt about trying to befriend richard gansey…” his love for richard is too big for words guyz
“LONGING TO BECOME FRIENDS”
when henry’s being kidnapped by mr. gray (also fuck you sir, how dare you hurt my son’s shoulder), he begs robobee to “tell someone who can make this stop,” and robobee alerts gansey, who calls mr. gray immediately !!!!
ch. 38: when he meets henry and mr. gray, gansey’s like, “this wasn’t the next step i wanted to take in our friendship”… ok gans tell us about the ‘next step’ you had been imagining then
when gansey confirms that they’re officially friends now: “now something else lit henry’s smile. it was genuine and pleased but also something more, and there were not quite words for it.” im gonna take a wild guess and say one word you might use would be ‘lust.’
ch. 49: gansey thinking of henry’s “be afraid and happy” advice when he needs strength to go after glendower…. im crying youre crying we’re all crying
ch. 51: robobee is basically a lovebee that tells henry when gansey needs him
henry using second person “thee” to refer to gansey 👀
henry lets gansey drive his car!!!
“i’ll watch for cops. go, go, go.” they’re like thelma and louise
henry lets gans drive his car along the steep side of a mountain with no guard rail! he must have been so scared but he let him do it!!!
gansey: “however do you drive?” henry: “i don’t. you do.”
“HE HAD TO TRUST HENRY”
henry reacting to gansey’s driving… “yay. also, woo.”
ch. 53: henry making a b&e joke but definitely also a sex joke that gansey will probably be up thinking about at 3 am for every night the rest of his life: “let us enter, dick, as i’ve already broken”
JEONG!!!!!! “we are friends at once, we would instantly do what friends would do for each other. not just pals. friends. blood brothers. you just feel it. we instead of you and me. that’s jeong.”
henry suggests splitting up and doesn’t question gans turning off his flashlight, because he’s PERFECT for gansey (me? dramatic? its more likely than you think)
ch. 54: gansey doesn’t ask henry to come with him once they find the tunnel bc he remembers that henry’s biggest fear is a hole in the ground (am i crying?? yes.)
henry literally giving gansey the shirt off his back!!!! (the shirt he’ll die in ok…. is it weird that i find it romantic that gansey will die wearing henry’s sweater)
ch. 55: GANSEY THINKING OF HTE ONCOMING SWARM AS “SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL” BECAUSE OF HENRY’S ADVICE
henry literally trying to reenact the princess bride with gansey like what the fuck?? “we have such few old treasures left; it would be so careless to let them get destroyed.”
gansey: “please. please help me.” henry: “i thought you’d never ask.” wtf why do they do this to me
ch. 58: henry tells gansey to pull over after they’re leaving glendower, and says, “stop driving. i know you need to. you’ve needed to since we left. get. out.” so gansey can get out of the car and cry 💖
ch. 59: henry casually calling gansey “president” as they’re binding adam’s hands???
ch. 64: while gansey’s official last words before dying are “it’ll be okay. i’m ready. blue, kiss me,” his SECOND-TO-LAST words are “thanks for everything, henry. you’re a prince among men.” like hwat hte hell dude….. are you even aware that youre in love..
ch. 66: henry is the one who demands they find a way to bring gansey back!!!
Tbh the only problem I have with s/u criticals are when people get nitpicky with characters and ‘canon’ personalities. In the new episode we get to see Lapis expand more compared to the past few episodes and while many did like her new characterization, those who didn’t had.. weird reasons to be nitpicky about??
The main anger in this episode about Lapis (other than her hair… but animation is hard !! Please understand that unless you want to make a 11 minute episode with 10,000 drawings than be my guest) is the last bit of when she goes, “I WAS RIGHT!”
Many believe it backtracked the point where she ADMITS she has a problem, something very powerful a person can do. To realize they aren’t always good . I’ll bet you that both sides of stans and crits have those that refuse that they can be wrong or that they know perfect morality. But really? Lapis did improve. She’s still not OK as said before and while it’d be amazing to finally get an episode for Lapis to pry out of her insecurities, it’s obviously not an easy feat. It took her almost a dozen episodes for her to FINALLY call Earth home. She’s even heard it from Peridot (both on and off screen).
No wonder she was so suspicious of Navie. And before you go, “Well she shouldn’t have judged her”, again, she has many bad memories on Earth. Despite her using her powers in the episode, she once admitted she was taking a break from water, a hint of PTSD.
It’s hard to be optimistic in a place or person when you compare different experiances. After getting along with Peridot, it’s obvious that the two had resembling feelings. But Navie… didnt. Lapis has still room to grow when creating relationships considering the fact that she got out of a toxic relationship and from this point, has 2 friends out of all the CG. Now back on point on why her giggling at the end isn’t a backtrack, realize this. She WAS right. From a viewers pov, yes it was obvious Navie was going to betray them. But does her finding humor in this remove her improvement in the episode? No. When Peridot says it’s not a rush she shows envy towards Navie AND apologizes to Navie for making her feel like the problem AND admits it was LAPIS’ PROBLEM. When they are on the ship she finally feels okay. But guess what happens? She, with Steven and Peri, were betrayed. After she realized she was the problem she attempted to trust Navie only to be tricked. You can’t tell me that you have never been in a situation where you were the only one who was suspicious about something, tried to draw it out as your problem, but then turned out to be right. Depending on the situation is the outcome but really? In Lapis’ hers was justly humorous. Do you remember the part about her hammock? While it’s debatable, I believe that Lapis maybe suffering from depression. It’s a place where she can ‘turn off for a bit’. Lapis talked about her envy, her insecurity, and showed bits of depression. So why is it a crime for her to laugh? She was so obviously emotionally exhausted and she realized that she didn’t have to be. As someone who suffers from diagnosed clinical depression, this is very relatable. Humor can be a cope for stress which Lapis obviously was. It released those pessimistic vibes and let her feel okay, maybe not alright, but okay . And what made us initially love and miss about our Lapis Lazuli? Her humor.
“I’m going to be completely honest here. When I first heard that [tyler] was going to be writing a book, because I was very biased about youtuber books at the time, I thought, great. It’s going to be some self-indulgent crap, because that was sort of the perception I had of youtubers in their 20’s writing books about their life, I’m like, you haven’t even lived your life. This book changed my opinion on youtubers writing books, honestly, and to be able to do that, you know it must be a good book.”
hey wassup hello !!i am liz &i am a total trashbag tbh oops ?? but i am a v pretty piece o’ garbage so feel free to love me all u want !!if u want to know a lil bit about me: i use she/her pronouns, i’m 21 and i’m from the est timezone. i’m a licensed makeup artist/cosmetologist so if u wanna talk makeup/hair i gotchu i’m a total junkie !! i love macaroni and cheese and naps nd also ed sheeran’s new album. i’m pretty #basic but let’s be friends. I’M BORING BUT JULIANA ISN’T SO HERE’S MORE ABOUT HER UNDER THE CUT and pls come 2 me for plots…or like this post & i’ll slide into ur dms…..ok anyway.
Azura’s outfit is as weird as all heck tbh. Mostly unecessary straps. lots of flowers. almost completely covered except for weird spots (upper back although kinda canceled out by hair, a side ab window, and half a pair of pants)
and i know real people designed her but it’s funny, to think of her thought process? of designing this outfit? because that’s not some normal outfit jazzed up no
you think she sat down with Oboro at some point and just listed off things she wanted because Oboro would probably love a challenge of making those choices aesthetically pleasing and good for a singer/dancer
“Oboro I need an ab window” “like a crop top?” “no it’s a whole dress, just, show the side of my right abs” “you got it”
“also straps” “why straps?” “…no reason”
and gotta have the slit skirt in order to dance and fight well in it make it all nice and flowy
also i love how the “dark” version of her outfit actually covers her up even more bc the ab window gets filled in and she gets a veil thank u god for not having a “sexier evil” version even tho nohr isn’t evil sh
show exactly 1 leg and the smallest bit of abdomen above your waistline just to tantalize people
C- Tbh I want to have an African American, African or Hispanic (basically any person of color as a roommate). I’m sorry but I do not want to have to constantly explain myself to my roommate because she’s not a person of color and never had a black friend in her life so she constantly feels the need to ask questions about how I do thinks because us being different races must mean that I’m a different species. Oh and I don’t want her to say my natural hair is “cool” either, because that’s annoying.
