When I started this blog, it was a backlog of prompts for myself when I had no ideas of what to write. Yesterday, at exactly 10:47 pm, I walked home from my 4 hour waitressing job and cried when I opened my phone. Yes, my feet were tired and yes, I was exhausted from fake smiling and telling people I’d “Be with them in one moment”, to only go to the kitchen and find what seemed like a million dishes- that wasn’t the reason I cried. Walking home and opening Tumblr, I tried to regain some strength as I knew we had visitors at home and I didn’t want to seem impolite. If I had’ve lived closer to London, I’d probably be within the remnants of a car collision by now- basically I stopped walking whilst crossing the road and started to cry :) You did that to me- I COULD’VE DIED.
Honestly, I’m so grateful for every single one of you, you’re all so incredible and I can’t believe there are people who’ve stuck around for over 2 minutes. I’m not all that great and a little rough around the edges, but I’m trying my hardest and I don’t really think I’d even be around if it weren’t for all your love and support. I’m so grateful and I can’t thank you enough.
So, my beautiful geniuses, I will graciously ask for one last favour- Keep writing. You could start with an idea and end up with a following of 10,000, or you could transform that idea into another form of media. Never stop doing what you love, not for anyone. Your passions will last longer than most things, so please pursue them. If you’ve only just started writing, if you’re 4 books deep or maybe only just learning English- Keep going. One day you’ll get more than you wished for, or (In my case) something you didn’t even wish for. You each deserve every star in the sky, a billion cookies and all the things that make you happy. I’d jump at the chance to meet you all. Thank you so much for being the most talented, admirable, beautiful and lovely following anyone could ever ask for.
I love you all more than you could ever imagine, I’m so lucky to have such a incredible internet family. All my love and thanks and best cookies, Yasmine xox
Omg that was so stupid of them. I cant believe that happened to you. Sorry people are idiots
Like one of them handed me a drink, I laugh, put the drink down then crossed my arms. Everyone gave me a confused look and then they tried to give me a drink again. After that I said I wasn’t drinking anything and they called me lame and the host of the party told me to leave (so I wouldn’t ruin peoples fun)
So I looked at my good friends Evan and Josh, told them to text me when they got home tomorrow and left.
It’s okay, I’m glad I came home instead of been there. They aren’t very nice people towards me all the time.
Lars has acquired the same powers as Lion, yes? We are somewhat sure of this. The hair-portal thing is a given, but Lion can do some other cool portal-related shit like this:
which appears to be a relatively short-range warp system that increases exponentially when layered; this is what got our losers to the gem base on the moon even though Steven can’t breathe in space.
While this can’t be used to get Lars back to Earth, it sure as shit might be able to get him around the surface of Homeworld without too many people noticing him. What I’m getting at is that he might be able to get ahold of a ship.
Except he can’t pilot one, and if anyone sees him getting into one of those suckers, he’s done for. He also can’t exactly scout out a docking station to tell when a relatively small craft is docked and emptied out enough to be hijacked.
So he needs a gem to come with him to pilot that sucker, and to keep an eye on the docks. The other off-colors can only do so much; they’re awfully conspicuous. Some, like Fluorite, are also friggin’ huge and the odds of Lars fitting them all into one portal is… not great.
So he needs a small, innocuous pilot who is completely at home navigating modern Homeworld.
