[whispers] soulmate au where you can steven universe style fuse with your soulmate(s)
*star eyes* Oh my gosh I love this idea!
Everyone is born with a gem/precious stone (or sometimes a metal or mineral that wouldn’t normally be considered a gemstone) somewhere on their body. This isn’t a full-on gemsona situation, but gemstones as this AU’s soulmark equivalent.
There’s a hereditary component to what gem you get, but it’s not simple inheritance. (i.e. You have a higher probability of having the same gem as one of your parents, and some family lines run relatively pure, but it’s also common to share a gem with a more distant relative, or to have something your family hasn’t seen in recent generations)
Gems come in “families,” so even if a certain bloodline runs pure, there’s still going to be a little variation. For example, the beryl family–beryl, emerald, aquamarine, heliodor, ect–are very closely related. Hunk’s family tends toward beryl gems.
Pidge has a malachite (associated with nature and supposedly good at preventing sensory overload) at the nape of her neck [example of malachite]
Matt has a goethite (associated with grief and raw emotion, often found with malachite deposits) on the inside of his wrist [example of goethite]
Shiro has a black opal (associated with karma and the cosmos, and often thought to bring misfortune despite also being regarded as a healing stone; the black variant is notable for the stark contrast with the blues, greens, reds, and yellows contained within) at his collarbone [example of a black opal]
Lance has a turquoise (associated with luck and ambition, but also unity and leadership, and said to confer protection if given to you by a friend) on the back of his left hand [example of turquoise]
Keith has a vein of luxite (the metal in his mother’s blade, and not something anyone on Earth recognizes) across his right palm. He wears his gloves in part to hide it.
Theoretically, anyone can fuse with anyone else, but the vast majority of fusions are unstable. There’s no way to tell who can form a stable fusion with whom until it happens
The official definition of “soulmate” is “a pair or grouping that can remain fused indefinitely.” Since it’s obviously impossible to prove that you can stay fused forever, and since most unstable fusions fall apart quickly, the cutoff is often set at five minutes. Any people who can stay fused longer than that are considered soulmates (if they choose to label themselves that way.)
There’s also no way to tell from gems or from the fusion itself if the bond is
romantic or platonic. You’d have to ask the people involved.
That doesn’t stop people from coming up with a millions theories anyway. (”Romantic partners always have the same gem!” “Romantic partners NEVER have the same gem!” “Platonic partners will always have gems in the same family!” “There are romantic sets–but good luck reaching an agreement on what the sets are.”)
Fusions look just like regular people with a few exceptions: they’ll have 2+ gems, but depending on placement you might not be able to tell; their eyes will usually be banded the colors of members of the fusion, but you have to look closely to notice; and there will sometimes be additional markings in the colors of the gems, often forming a trail connecting the two gems.
Other than those minor physical differences, fusions are also notably different if you look at brain scans. They don’t generally maintain two (or more) separate consciousnesses, but they retain the knowledge, memories, and capabilities of the people involved, and they tend to have much higher levels of brain activity on any given task. Fusions who are familiar with their fused state tend to be more dexterous, have better reflexes, and be physically stronger than their unfused counterparts, and they tend to solve problems more quickly and more efficiently.
The rest of this (i.e. the Voltron ‘verse story) is going under a cut because this is already long.
Itll always be better to look stupid at practice to look amazing at competition.
When practicing across the floors. When working on new skills. When learning new work. When reviewing old skills. When warming up.
Dont hold back for fear of looking stupid. Itll always be easier to tone it down than to try and give more than you have all season at a competition.
Fans created the “Bandana Project”, in which fans had to wear a bandana of a certain color depending on which member of the band they prefer.
Harry wore a blue bandana during that day, and also during the concert.
This isn’t just any pill bottle, it’s a Pillsy pill bottle. It’s a smart pill bottle.
What does it do?
•LED light on top of bottle indicating notifications/pill has been taken (blue)/bottle is empty(red)
•Audio reminders on the lid to take your meds. For someone like me who has 3 bottles going off at 7 am and 5 bottles going off at 10 pm, it can get quite loud. There are volume settings that can be set per cap.
•Double dosing warning in the app (I have needed this already)
•Can also help track meds for family members and pets.
•4 different color bands (I use blue for pain, red for insomnia, yellow for allergy, and green for acid reflux so I know that blue and red are the ones I need to be super careful with).
•Pill tracking (granted I have been terrible about updating when I have put a new month worth of meds in the bottle).
Granted, they are pricy bottles. I managed to buy them in bulk during the preorder period and I got refunded for some of them through my local autism fund because executive dysfunction is a common trait of autism and these are helping me take my meds better than before. For those with executive dysfunction causing serious interference with medication (examples: ADHD meds, anti anxiety meds, other psych meds, pain meds), and you have the ability to save up, it might be worth the investment for those critical medications.
(I am taking requests for all categories but fanfiction and the full OC critique from now until the 15th, if you want to see how it works!)
(message me if you’d like a commission! paypal only.)
Yep, you heard me. My need for money has brought me so low that I am now peddling my art like some peasant. Haha, just kidding. Doing commissions isn’t coming from a need for money, but rather the fact that my passion for writing has expanded into something I want to do as a career. And what better way to start than with commissions? Don’t worry, I’ll still be posting my regular writing on my blog. Commissions is only for more specific and specialized (+ very edited) orders that other people want to read.
So where will the money paid for the writing go? Good question. By buying a commission, you help support my passions, whether it is writing, reading, animal rescue, or even fishkeeping. The extra money will help me continue to create.
How much is it to commission a piece? Keep reading below for what sort of commissions I will be offering, and what the rates will be!

The second category I am opening, is concepts & ideas.
Concepts, Ideas, Abstract Paragraphs: This is something I specialize in, especially in fandoms. I can paint experiences with synesthesia, create characters and concepts based off of songs and albums, rally people in a fandom, write an experience inspired by a fandom, or even purposely write something that inspires nostalgia, regret, sadness, happiness, or hopefulness.I can highlight values found in a fandom or band, write about the emotion that comes with the book/movie/show/music.

Other: message for further inquiries.
OC Design: yo, i love OCs, and I love helping them be perfected. Do you need help with your OC? Need a good backstory? Not sure what your OC’s astrological sign should be? Does your OC need better costume? Need help assigning your OC flaws? I can help your OC become the best it can be. Not to mention, I can also create original characters. Do you have a song that means the world to you? Maybe an album you can’t live without? I can create a character based off of practically anything that successfully and thoroughly embodies the vibe and persona of that thing. I can also write stories starring your OC. Crossovers, originals, interactions with other OCs, YOU NAME IT!
OC Critique (is my OC well developed? Do they need more/less backstory? Would they work in this scenario? Is my OC too basic? Does my OC need a goal? Maybe my OC has no fatal downfall?): 4$ per questions (which include careful research and analysis) or 15.99$ for an entire OC analysis& designing help.
New OC written design (based off of a place, a song, an album, a book, or anything else): 15$ (includes detailed backstory, astrological sign, relationships, fatal flaws & everything else you need for an OC)
OC “fanfiction” (includes a detailed interaction/scene/character development/etc): 3.99$ for one page + 1$ for any additional pages.
Lastly, but not leastly, is poems and sayings. Another specialty. Simply send me a prompt over messages about a n y t h i n g, and I will write a poem or a saying about it (please specify.)

You can scroll through my page to find more examples of poetry.
one saying: 1$ one poem: 2$ - 3$ depending on length
This and this got me thinking about a high school band AU!
Roxanne is obviously an angry color guard member. Megamind is in love. Minion and Wayne are…concerned. (also, Wayne plays the xylophone LOL)
Based on my own experiences as a colorguard member with a bunch of FLAG STEALERS OMG. STOP STEALING MY FLAG AND LEAVING ME WITHOUT A FLAG !! NOW I LOOK LIKE AN IDIOT !! WHEN REALLY !! THE IDIOT !! IS YOU !!!
Roxanne is wearing the costume that we wore the year our performance theme was, and I’m not even close to kidding…
it was the weirdest theme ever and they didn’t want to spend any money on the show so we had homemade flags. Made out of stiff canvas and wobbly plastic pipes. They were TERRIBLE.
The worst of the terrible flags were white, hand painted with what was meant to be corn stalks but DEFINITELY HARDCORE LOOKED LIKE MARIJUANA.
They tried to make us re-use those flags the next year, but we hid them and pretend they’d been stolen.
And that was also the year we didn’t have a coach.
Also we NEVER MADE A SINGLE CIRCLE for ANY OF OUR FORMATIONS.
(…you can see where Roxanne’s bitterness comes from LOL)
You always see people dressed up as KISS at Expo’s, Shows & Conventions….How cool would it be for a group of Cosplayers to add a Fifth member, and come as THE COLORFORMS, including the “off-color band member schemes” with the plus one dressed as “The Mad Rock Promoter”?
Guaranteed to be the hit of the event.
Someone needs to do this…
