Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.

Steven: Gems shouldn’t fight each other.  

I wanted to make this gifset because, with every episode that passes, I am more and more convinced that Steven is, step by step, becoming a true leader. Like Rose, Steven sees beauty in everything, and his human upbringing makes him selfless, empathic and caring, and every Gem he’s had the opportunity to influence responds to that. To me, the episodes where Steven spends the day with other humans in Beach City aren’t at all fillers, they are part of Steven’s growth and upbringing and in each he learns something. He wouldn’t be the person he is without Greg, Connie and everyone he’s around. And I think Rose maybe knew that, she knew what Steven would become was exactly what they needed, what Gems lacked of. And maybe, when she asked Steven to “take care of them”, she was being more general than I initially thought, and was asking him to make his own place among them and guide them. As a human. And as a Gem. Anyway, even if I’m not correct, what I’m sure of is that, if things go wrong, these Gems here will stand by him. Because of who he is. Because of what he’s becoming to them.
