actually i am really sorry

Most of us guessed that Navy would end up betraying everyone by the end of the episode. 

I don’t think most of us expected that having her go from this:

to this:

would be really good for Lapis’ mental health.

And despite certain people’s fears about certain story boarders… this was actually very much in character for her. I think it’s pretty safe to assume that Lapis has always been cynical, even in her pre mirror days. After she escaped she went from cynical to detached and apathetic. Not an unexpected defense mechanism for someone who was trapped in an inanimate object for 6,000 years. But she has made progress. She trusts Steven and Peridot. Enough not only to express her concerns, but to essentially make a confession.

Life on Earth is really confusing. It took me a long time to get use to it. I’m still getting use to it.

Given everything that’s happened to her on Earth, it’s only natural that she’s having a hard time adjusting. But she’s just confessed her biggest insecurity: she knows she’s having a hard time dealing with what she’s been through, while having to get use to to living a normal life on the planet where her greatest traumas happened. Before the rebellion she would have done her job and left for the next planet, Earth having been a distant memory by this time. But now she can never leave. Earth has to become home. 

She wants to move on, but feels guilty about how difficult actually doing that is.

So here comes this I-Insta-Love-All-Things-Earth ruby, who seems freakishly well adjusted from the moment she crashes face first into the planet. Never mind that she was lied to not once, but twice, by the crystal gems. Never mind that she was blasted out into space and abandoned while they stole her ship. All is instantly forgiven and she just wants to be a part of their happy family.

Worse yet? The people Lapis cares most about just buy it. They go right along with it as though Navy’s behavior is perfectly normal. It took time for Lapis to even begin to be okay with the idea of living in Earth and forgiving the crystal gems- she’s still working on it, and it’s painful. She’s worked so hard for every inch of progress she’s made, and here’s someone who’s seemingly able to move on the same day they got to Earth.

I just don’t get it. Why is it so easy for her when it was so hard for me? 

So when the perfectly well adjusted Navy turned out to be a gleeful sociopath  gleefully hell bent on revenge, everything fell into place.

Navy’s sudden but inevitable betrayal was the best thing to happen for Lapis’ mental health to date.

So what’s the take away from this? 1) People react differently to trauma. 2) Just because someone seems well adjusted doesn’t mean they are. 3) It’s okay to take a long time to heal from your traumas. It’s okay for it to be a constant work in progress. It’s okay not to be okay. 

And at the end of the day, that realization can almost feel like happiness.

inspiration for witches

  • witches of the forest and the night - they change into wolves during the day and roam the green forest of trees searching for fellow caged creatures. The set free winged and wise owls under the moon, that illuminates their pearl feathers.
  • witches of the winter and stars - foggy winter evenings become hues of blue filled with starry nights for the witches. they live in old victorian schools surrounded by trees made dead by the harsh cold season. they wear bewitched moonstones around their necks that turn them into deers enchanting the frozen forest…
  • witches of the sea and precious gems - these witches live and breathe the sacred salty air of the shore. they use precious gems to channel their inner soul to undulate crashing waves into the grey sea. they dance and drown beneath the crystal watery surface like silver sea-sirens.
  • witches of burning fire and flames - golden wreathed witches filled with the radiance of bright fire and flames. they use blazing candles to illuminate the darkness in their cathedral of trees. their familiars are foxes as red as the sun and as sly as smoke from their fires.

ALRIGHT, first of all, I’m sorry for ruining your au with my art ;;u;;
Instead of Eddsworld it’s Ellsworld, would it be called Actual Mom AU?
You made me fall in love with this au @goddessoftheworld and I love Tori and Tam, so this is what goes from my mind actually ^-^💕
Once again I’m seriously sorry, I got not even a month new markers and I still can’t blend them correctly etc., plus my liner hates me, it fucked up Tori’s face TAT

I think I’m way funnier than I actually am

my-mind-is-my-sword replied to your post “I wanna write some sheith, anyone have any prompts?”

Fantasy AU where Keith is a blacksmith and Shiro is an injured knight who needs a new prosthetic.

This… kinda got away from me. *shoves it forward* Enjoy??



Shiro checks his map again, and examines his surroundings. He really does seem to be in the right place, but he doesn’t see how anyone could willingly live here, let alone a blacksmith as talented as he’s been told this one is.
There is nothing but sand and dry earth around him, so different from the lush forests and busy towns he usually favours. He’s travelled for quite a while in this desert with only his horse for company, and absolutely nothing on the horizon… except for the small house he’s now facing. 

He hesitates, thrown by how deserted it looks, all dry wood and cracked stones. Eventually though, he makes up his mind and dismounts, walking towards the door. At the very least, he can ask for water, and he could definitely use the shade. 

He knocks, half-expecting it to simply echo without answer, and for quite a few seconds it does, but he soon hears light footsteps approaching. He straightens his shoulders and puts on his best smile, because whoever decided to live here, he hasards the guess that it might be because they didn’t usually like people.
Then the door opens, and his diplomatic smile drops right off his face.
As a knight, Shiro’s met quite a few blacksmiths in his life, usually because he needs a new weapon, and he thinks he has a pretty good idea what they’re usually like.

The man standing in front of him is nothing like that. First of all, he’s pretty. Blacksmiths aren’t supposed to be pretty, they’re supposed to be rugged and intimidating, gruff men with muscles large enough to bend metals to their wills. 

He could bend me to his will, thinks Shiro dazedly, and then immediately flushes bright red. Oh Lord.

okay so i’ve been rewatching “hey arnold!” cause nostalgia right and i love these kids what the heck

also i don’t know how to draw football heads OR unibrows please give me death

Listen. LISTEN. I don’t know if this moment was actually in the script or if Harry and Matt improvised it (it reminds me of that iconic moment when Magnus holds a finger in front of Alec’s mouth so he doesn’t start rambling?) BUT I love Alec. Magnus is freaking trying to feed him and what does this boy do????? He takes the food right from the fork with his fingers????? He’s so awkward and you have no idea how much I relate to this stupid little thing. I could talk all day long about how many times I’ve seen myself in Alec in this kind of situations and it’s amazing to see some real awkwardness and weird interactions because that’s an actual thing.
