I CAN'T BELIEVE THEY DROPPED THIS ON US

YOI ep 10 has still got me awed at how amazing this anime has progressed. But one thing that got me really intrigued, is where it was set: Barcelona.

Now, I remember reading a post somewhere (I’ll edit this once I find it) that Kubo-sensei and a friend traveled to Barcelona to look at monuments and places for the anime etc etc

Of course, I checked her IG and I found these gems:

HMMMMMM

THIS

LOOKS

FAMILIAR

I want to tell you about what it’s like to talk to frank iero.
  • He will make sure all of his attention is on you from the moment you walk up to him. (I had to wait for three people to walk in between us before actually stepping up to him and he watched me the whole time.)
  • He leans in to hear you better and speaks softly in reply. 
  • His eye contact does not drop for a second.
  • I’ve never met anyone who’s made me more calm than he did. Especially with active anxiety, I should’ve been freaking out. But his entire demeanor was soft and calming. 
  • He let’s you know he is not in a rush.
  • If you tell him something, he will become truly interested. He prompts you to elaborate and answers enthusiastically.
  • Also, if you get the chance to make him laugh, do that. His eyes get squinty and his laugh is beautiful in real life.

Overall, he was one of the coolest people I’ve ever met and I’m grateful I got time to talk to him. Please feel free to add!!

the end of this month marks 2 years since exo dropped exodus. it’s been 2 years since they came back after Hell Era™ n delivered unto us what is arguably the greatest album of all time. it’s been 2 years since exo reinvented the music industry yet again n the decided to continuously one-up themselves with every single release after that. honestly. the iconography

Fai’s ready to drop some truth bombs I’M SO READY FOR THIS

TELL US FAI WHAT DID YOU NOTICE ABOUT GEYSER-SENPAI WITH THAT DARKNESS SHADOWING OVER ONE SIDE OF YOUR FACE

TELL US THESE OMINOUS DETAILS

Okay so firstly FAI IS STILL HOLDING ON TO HIS ARM. KUROGANE STILL HASN’T COMPLAINED. AND EVERYONE AROUND THEM HAS NOTICED. 

IT IS BEAUTIFUL.

But also two saboteurs?

Ok. 

Ok. 

I did not expect that at all. 

Camp Pining Hearts Foreshadowing Theory

Ok so we’ve seen a subtle similarites between the campers and the Homeworld Trio. First we have Paulette

She has a blue diamond on her hat and a blue scarf with water drops, similar to Lapis’ gem. 

Percy

Two yellow diamonds and a necklace that looks like Peridot’s gem. (btw i don’t think it’s a coincidance that both symbols of their gemstones are on their necks).

Peridot also mentions Pierre, a brute, a force to be reckoned with. Both he and Percy belong to the Yellow Team. Pierre is an allegory of Jasper.

That gives us:
Paulette - Lapis

Percy - Peridot

Pierre - Jasper

I’ve seen people interpretating this show as lapidot confirmed, but I think it’s more complicated than that.

We know that Paulette likes Percy, but Percy can’t return his feelings because of the Color War. Peridot ships him with Pierre and think that Paulette is too weak to have any place in camp’s hierarchy, so she doesn’t ship her with anyone.

I think that Peridot’s feelings about campers are connected to her feelings about Lapis and Jasper, because she subconsciously sees the similarities.

I think that Lapis wanted to form a positive relationship with Peridot when they first met, but Peridot didn’t even consider it and rejected her from the start. Why?

The Color War = The Diamond Authority

(look at those shots of Paulette and Percy - they both stand on different sides, which shows that their different affiliation, but with flags of Canada representing their common origin.)

EDIT: Paulette (Lapis) doesn’t have anything in the background while Percy (Peridot) has a house with a triangle - a symbol of how Lapis can’t see the home she knew in Homeworld, a place that is all that Peridot knew.

Peridot didn’t want to form any relationship with Lapis because she belongs to a different diamond. And we’ve seen the proof of it in The Answer, which is Lapis’ cameo.

Also, Lapis doesn’t look strong and Peridot has never seen her in action like we did. Lapis has no idea how Homeworld’s technology - Peridot’s element - works, which builds an image of weak, clueless Lapis on mercy of strong and intelligent gems like Peridot and Jasper. Peridot is underestimating her.

She is more drawn to Jasper, because not only they belong to the same diamond (when Peridot was explaining to Steven why she ships Percy and Pierre, the first thing she told him was that they are both on the same team, the Yellow Team), they also have a chance to “present the strongest battle formations”. We’ve seen how Peridot likes quarts, and it looks like a common practice for Homeworld to pair wise/intelligent gems with physically storng ones (Peridot/Jasper, Sapphire/Three Rubies). So I think that Peridot likes quarts so much because she was taught by Homeworld that a combination like this can deal with any task. Peridot understood how Garnet can be fused all the time not because she understood Ruby’s and Sapphire’s love, but because she thought that they form the strongest couple, opposites creating balance.

But I can be wrong of course.

All I can say with 100% certainty is that @laurenzuke played us all.

“You’re not in charge here, and that’s a good thing because people die when you’re in charge. You were willing to let a bomb drop on my sister. Then you made a deal with Lexa, who left us in Mount Weather to die and forced us to kill everybody who helped us, people who trusted me.”

remember when it was the best sleep he’d had in a very long time?

remember when he wanted to cook her breakfast?

remember the allusive but satisfying smile?

remember THE HANDS?

remember the hair fixing?

remember “a bit of heartbreak and a touch of self-loathing”?

remember “who Tinkerbell said I was destined to be with. I should have listened to that stupid fairy”?

remember THE NOSE KISS?

remember “are you really that much of a pessimist?”

remember her opening up about the book

remember “you’re not the Evil Queen anymore”?

remember “I’d be happy to have more than a conversation”?

remember “Regina, let me help”?

remember “this cannot happen a second time” AND THEN IT DID?

remember him backing her against the wall, THE SMILES, that kiss, more hands, THE LIFT and the squeak at the end?

cause THAT WAS ALL ONE SCENE

and I’m probably (definitely) never getting over it
