and this was the result

Honestly I want to cry. I love Magnus so much. He's honestly such amazing bi representation and poc representation- very specifically Asian- and Harry himself is an actual angel. I just... want him to get more love and respect? And I'll be honest I'm white and bisexual and it breaks my heart and I honestly can't imagine how much worse it must be for fans of color and LGBTQ fans of color. I just am sad, sorry for this ask.

i’m just going to be brutally honest and say that white ppl can criticize this show and walk away and still find their rep elsewhere; as a queer se asian i … can’t. like i don’t. have much else?? this is it for us. this is all we get

so it’s uncomfortable when i see the criticisms from white ppl leveled @ the show as if they somehow get it, as if it hurts them just as bad or they’re just as disappointed. like…no, you don’t get it. you just don’t. and it isn’t a slight against white fandom i’m happy you guys are lucky enough you can look elsewhere but please remember that you are in fact lucky enough to be able to look elsewhere

Gem Au - Barbara

I’ve hit a few snags in the Gem AU

For this post:

What to do with Barbara. She could be a normal human, but I feel like that’s just putting her to the side. Some options for if she is a gem:

  1. She tagged along with Jim and Toby for whatever reason. Maybe she’s a kindergarten worker and she grew tired of watching all the ‘defective’ gems she watched emerge end up shattered, so she fled Homeworld with the two.
  2. She was already on Earth. Perhaps she’s been wandering for centuries after the war. Maybe she’s a more mellow corrupted gem who takes a liking to Arcadia Oaks, she’s like a local cryptid even. She’s been spotted walking through the woods, but she’s never attacked anyone. The baddies attempt to activate Killahead bridge, the magical energy attracts her to the museum, they notice her and attack, poofing her. They don’t know about needing to bubble corrupted gems, so they just stick her gem in a box. (said box could wind up either in the museum or in Strickler’s office. since the kids eventually break into both, they’d end up releasing her either way.) when she’s freed, she reforms into a smaller shape (like what centipeetle did) and Toby, Jim, and the trolls take her with them. (eventually they would find a way to reverse her corruption. Maybe it has something to do with the Heartstone, but I’ll wait to see if/how SU canon heals corruption before choosing for certain)
  3. In a similar vein, maybe she was trapped in an object, like canon Lapis in the mirror. Said object winds up in Strickler’s possession, and he starts to suspect sentience when the object responds to his talking. Toby and Jim are the ones to free her, but she still remembers how Strickler was the first person to talk to her in so long.

Another thought I had. I’m not actually going to put this into the au itself, but I really don’t know where else to put this, so here it is:

What if Gem Barbara follows in the footsteps of Rose Quartz. She falls in love with Strickler, and eventually they have a kid, and she gives up her physical form and passes her gem on to the child. So now you have a child that is half changeling and half Gem (inb4 someone calls the hypothetical kid a Mary Sue) and full of surprises. Strickler would raise the kid with some advice from Greg and Steven and the Crystal Gems. And of course Toby and Jim are going to act as siblings, helping Strickler understand his childs gem powers.

(Here’s a massive Crack Idea for you: 

Gem AU v2: Halfchangeling Boogaloo. Jim’s dad was a changeling and his mom was a gem, and at age 15 he is chosen as the Trollhunter. Everything is a MESS (do not take this seriously. this is as far as i’m going with this insanity).)
