adventures in capitalism


☆ DOWNTOWN ☆ the trio exploring the streets of Coruscant on a night out! (surely even the Resistance has some downtime when not on missions, right… and imagine experiencing the scale of this bustling city planet for the first time!!)

I was listening to the song Downtown a lot, which is ridiculous and catchy but also the chorus makes me want to dance down the streets of an intergalactic city too /o/ also just imagining the First Order trio running into them and doing the dance-off in the video haha


god, amethyst’s expressions are so subtle here, and still so telling.

because while shapeshifting is a sore point and an insult to peridot, it’s a vital coping mechanism for amethyst

she’s constantly shapeshifting because she isn’t comfortable in her own body. and i don’t think she’s ever completely been. that there’s always been something that just felt wrong

i think that’s where her purple puma persona came from originally. just experimenting with and then accidentally hitting a form close to her “intended” one.  she couldn’t keep it up forever, but she still noticed that she was happier in that form, that it felt right in a way her normal body didn’t. and most of all, that she was happy when she used that form to fight

she just didn’t know how, or why, until peridot waltzed into her life, revealed something about amethyst that the other gems had kept hidden from her for millennia

and since then, well,

yeah i think the idea of being bigger has been a constant in amethyst’s mind.

(but what about shorty squad then? that’s a very good question that i’ll get to later! hopefully this month)


“here on our planet, back in the old days… the real old days. It was every man for his self! Scrooglin and scratch scrobblin for the good stuff: the greenest valleys, scratch scrobblin.
And the Strongest, Meanest men got all the best stuff. They got the green valleys and were all like ‘the rest of you? y'all scrats get sand’.

That’s when they made the laws you see. Once the strong guys got it how they liked it, they said 'this is fair now, this is the law!’.

Once they were winning,
they changed the rules up.”

Tronnor are in Queenstown New Zealand which is probably one of the most beautiful parts of the country where you can go on these boat rides where the water is like a fricken mirror

And its also the adventure capital of the world because it has:

Bungy jumping

Sky diving

Jet boating

A fricken luge

Which you can get to on a fricken gondola

Its just so

fricken beautiful
