Let me just say, I sincerely hope this is the beginning of a beautiful relationship- AND that we get to see the side of Pearl we never had a chance to see before.
You never saw me in action! Breaking every rule, taking on the authorities so I could indulge in the joys of life on Earth!
And think about it, we haven’t really seen her in action. At least not without the context of being a maternal figure to Steven. We’re talking about the Terrifying Renegade Pearl, beyond the impressive abilities we’ve already seen. The Pearl who had the courage to not only learn how to use a sword, but actually use it to fight for her freedom. The Pearl who took a stand. The Pearl who proudly declared that she belonged to no one.
Looking at her day to day life now, it’s almost easy to forget. Almost. But Pearl hasn’t.
Instead we drove to loud music, chased a mysterious woman into the night, and broke the law. I’ve lost my edge. I should have stayed home with the puzzle.
What are all of these things to someone with her history? She had one goal: Mingle with the humans in their strange human way. Wear the pants, drink the juice, bump into them without hurting them. To be COOL. And if we know anything about Pearl, it’s that she always has a plan. Even when she says she doesn’t. So when things don’t go according to plan, it bothers her. A lot. And despite her rebel spirit, at the end of the day she just wants to be liked by the people she cares about. She doesn’t just want to be cool, she needs to be cool.
The thing about Pearl? She’s cool by virtue of just being herself. And sometimes she even realizes it. After all:
I’ve been a criminal for 6,000 years.
She’s still got that rebel spirit whether she realizes it or not. And when she realizes it? Nothing can stop her. She wants Mystery Girl?
She gets Mystery Girl. And how does she get Mystery Girl?
I asked her about her hair, and then she asked how I colored mine, I told her my appearance is just a conscious manifestation of light. And she said ‘I know how that is’. Although, I highly doubt it. Oh! And then I added ‘By the way I saved your planet and your species and you’re welcome.’
By being her adorably nerdy self. Which IS cool. This is the Pearl that is starting to come into her own in her new life without Rose Quartz. The Pearl that is starting to achieve everything Rose ever wanted for her but never could while she was so devoted to her. The Pearl that is finally and truly being forced to become to own Gem.
Don’t get me wrong, Pearl clearly has a type. But this Mystery Woman is NOT Rose. She has no expectations, no preconceived notions of what a Pearl ‘should’ be. She was just some cute girl with cute hair who went on about being a conscious manifestation of light and maybe she’s an alien? Either way she’s someone she wants to talk to again.
It’s pretty safe to say that previous chapter of her life IS over. It shaped her, it made her everything she was until now, but starting tonight, she’s moving on. She may have lost Rose 14 years ago, but tonight marked the end of an era. Before tonight she never would have dared to have acted the way she did. With a HUMAN no less. And in the end, what got her what she wanted? By plucking up the courage to be fearlessly herself.
I think we’re about to learn a LOT about Pearl, and see her grow more than we ever thought possible. And I sincerely look forward to it.
Happy New Year everyone! It’s getting close to midnight here and I finished up some sketches that I might color someday~ been at Disneyland for the past several days so I’ve been on an increased Star Wars kick :)

this is chanyeol giving an “X” sign to their managers after they told them to end the concert after 3 songs.
The sponsors of K-Friends Concert took all of exo-l’s money and never paid EXO for their performance. EXO had to change at their hotel and perform bare faced. They performed for FREE against SM’s wishes. Now if this isn’t a show of love towards exo-ls, then I don’t know what is.
Taylor Swift’s 1989 is the best-selling album of 2014. Going into the final sales week of 2014, Taylor Swift’s 1989 trailed the blockbuster “Frozen” soundtrack by roughly 120,000 units. Particularly impressive about Taylor Swift’s 1989 ascent to #1 is the fact that it did not hit shelves until October 27. The “Frozen” soundtrack, as monstrous as it was, had the entire year to pad its total.
Here’s my personal collection of free to use plushie/stuffed animal sewing patterns! I’ll try to update it as I find more.
Also, just a quick reminder to look at the copyright / permissions before selling works made from these patterns! Some allow you to sell plushies made from them, some don’t. Make sure you look into that on the individual patterns! When in doubt, ask the creator. Don’t / can’t do that? Just don’t sell the plushies! Stay out of trouble!
