This isn’t a cutesy ‘you stole the covers in the night’ kind of fight. It’s not even a ‘you backed out of our plans again’ fight.

No. This is a, “If you’re so damn unhappy, why don’t you just leave?”

It’s a, “Maybe I will.”

A, “Maybe you should.”

“Maybe I will,” Connor says again, because he doesn’t want Oliver to mean it. If he gives him a chance, maybe he’ll say something else. Anything else.

Take it back. Please take it back.

Oliver crosses his arms over his chest. The glare he’s giving Connor softens for only a moment before hardening again. “You said that already.”

Connor’s stomach ties into knots. This is why you don’t love. You don’t trust. You don’t bare your soul to anyone. They just throw it right back.

Dirty. Worthless. Broken.

Oliver’s arms unhook. His eyes widen. “Connor.” He takes a step forward but stops when Connor backs away so fast he hits the wall.

It isn’t until Oliver reaches up a hand toward Connor’s face, stopping halfway, that he realizes his eyes might have tears in them. He blinks them back behind a well-trained facade.

Oliver doesn’t want him? Fine. Fine. That’s totally fine. He can handle that. He’s never let rejection get to him before.

But he’s never really loved like this before.

He’ll make sure he never loves like this again.

Water Lilies: 3/11

jillstahoftazmily asked:

au where ninten and giegue are going to the grocery store and giegue gets in a long conversation with an old friend, leaving Ninten playing super smash bros for the 3ds on the Magicant stage, so he can see himself in the background and cry because he isn't playable. *takes sip of water* not sure where I thought of this but I need help

its just too bad that a thing like a 3ds wasn’t around for an 80s kid like ninty 

WAIT

WHAT IF AMETHYST

CREATED THE PURPLE PUMA

BECAUSE SHE KNOWS SHE WAS A “MISTAKE” IN THE KINDERGARDEN AND THEREFORE FELT INFERIOR TO THE OTHER GEMS CREATED IN THE GARDEN.

THOSE GEMS WHO WERE NOT “MISTAKES” IN THE GARDEN WERE MOST LIKELY STRONGER THAN HER AND, RECENTLY, WE ENCOUNTERED SOMEONE WHO LOOKS SURPRISINGLY SIMILAR TO THE PURPLE PUMA.

MAYBE THE PURPLE PUMA WAS BASED OFF OTHER GEMS IN THE GARDEN, OTHER GEMS SHE WAS ORIGINALLY SUPPOSED TO BE LIKE BEFORE SHE BECAME A MISTAKE. 

SHE USES THE PURPLE PUMA AS A WAY TO COPE WITH THIS KNOWLEDGE.

***I DUNNO IF THIS IS COMMON KNOWLEDGE OR NOT BUT I COULDN’T STOP THINKING ABOUT HOW SIMILAR THE PURPLE PUMA LOOKED TO JASPER***
