Happy 35th Birthday, Sebastian Stan! ヽ(〃＾▽＾〃)ﾉ | August 13th, 1982
❝You have to pay attention to the moments when you’ve felt on top on the world. I remember the first time I was on stage, I was doing ‘West Side Story,’ I was 17 and this woman was crying because she liked what I was doing so much.❞
Crewniverse tricked us into thinking that Pink’s palanquin is a lot bigger than it is - same with Pink, herself. When Blue walks up to her own palanquin, it’s obvious that it’s just the right size for her.
But when she’s next to Pink’s, there are a LOT of optical illusions going on:
Blue was kneeling or crouching by it at first, making it look bigger.
When Blue stands up, she still looks shorter because she’s slouching.
The way the palanquin is leaning makes the roof look higher.
The flowers obscure the bottom, making it hard to see just how big it is.
The palanquin is on a hill, making it higher, and thus bigger-looking.
The legs are extended (the ones on Blue’s were retracted), making it higher.
In the above image, you can already see that Pink’s palanquin only comes to Blue’s shoulders. Let’s take a closer look and find out just how big it is:
Already we can see that the palanquin is a lot smaller than it initially looks. Let’s find out how much smaller Pink really is next to Blue.
So it looks like Pink is probably less than half as tall as Blue. Maybe about halfway up her thigh, give-or-take. Looks like Pink’s palanquin lends credence to:
The common theory that Pink is the newest Diamond.
If so, this would mean Pink is even newer than I thought! That would explain why Blue (and Eyeball and Holly Blue and even Yellow) seem to act as if Pink was especially precious: She’s just a little kid!
EDIT: (In case anyone sees this.) Nice to see this post getting attention and some good discussion! =D I’ll note that I’m experimenting with how much detail to include in a theory post, and how to best present information. Some stuff has been brought up that I left out on purpose for readability, or because it wouldn’t make a huge difference in the end result. That said:
It definitely looks like Crewniverse was trying to make the height difference hard to notice, and the height difference is consistant thorughout the scene. To me, the scene screams “We’re leaving subtle hints about things we haven’t revealed, again!”
Blue isn’t much closer to the camera than the palanquin, so there shouldn’t be too much of a perspective difference.
The ‘How Are Gems Made’ Minisode states that Gems suck the life out of the ground to skip childhood (I suspect Peridot will grow). Gems are probably designed to do that because the Diamonds wanted them to get to work right away. If the Diamonds don’t have that feature, however, they’d experience childhood.
I do think dialogue hints at Pink being a child, rather than a runt. For example, Yellow calls Pink’s zoo “silly,” suggesting a childish nature.
I do think that young Gems and Diamonds would still grow up very, very slowly. Remember that Pink would have to be a MINIMUM of ~1,000 years old by the time she was taken down; probably much, much older, especially if the Gem writing in Off Colors is any indication.
I suspect that Blue and Yellow are already fully grown. Between that, and the previous bullet point, we wouldn’t see any height difference with Blue between The Answer and Steven’s Dream.
I guess I got some good feedback on how much detail to include, and I’ll try to adjust accordingly for future posts. Thanks!
I completely blame all the people I follow online for reblogging all these bendies(bends?bendys?bendies?bendieys?????) for making me draw this
This was actually based off of @ceeblathersdumb shenanigans but then it spawned the thought of “what if there was one of those obligatory eps where the mc clones themself a billion times?” which then brought around “what if there was an original soundtrack record collection?”
No matter what I attempt, even if it’s the most simple of tasks, it always ends in failure. Unfortunately, I find that my life is one big regret after another. Yet, after all these years, I still don’t know when to give up. Is it my fault to keep trying when the results are always the same? Is it impossible for me to make things right? Even if I’d try to give up, I don’t think I could. It’s not in my nature to submit in the face of disappointment. In the end, I guess I’m just a glutton for punishment. I really am an idiot.
“My little brother loves creepy clowns. He’s only 3 so I won’t let him watch IT, but he still loves Pennywise. He asked me to paint his face like Pennywise. He’s done pennywise before but I lost most of the pictures. And since we’ve gotten more pictures of the movie Pennywise, I decided to redo the photo shoot and really go big. The shot in the water was actually a last minute decision. I thought about the scene in the basement and my friends own a lake, so I asked them if I could stop by and toss him in the lake. They said it was fine so he got in the lake and made his “mean face” and I got the perfect shot. “This is the first IT photo shoot I did. At first, he had a plastic bag on his head and a wig and I edited the forehead to look more real. He didn’t have the full costume. So I decided to redo it. And the new one it’s his real hair, and his forehead is edited just a bit to look bigger because these costumes I make from household things I happen to have. So I didn’t have a bald cap and liquid latex, and I threw that old orange wig away. That’s my favorite part of doing it. I don’t really plan things out and make these fancy costumes. Occasionally I do, but with Pennywise, he’s got on an old white blazer, I tied the sleeves with some string to give it the puffy look and the little cuffs at the end. He’s got a dress on under that’s rolled up under it to give it the puffy thing on his hips. The collar is a dress my sister has that I just turned inside out and put around his neck. So really the only thing I bought was orange hairspray and some balloons. I make most everything from simple things I find around the house.“

“I was getting fucking better!” Graves wipes his eye with the back of his hand furiously, refusing to let the tears fall. “I was never going to be fine, not after what happened, but I was getting closer to it and I hoped - I hoped that you’d see it too and that - a-after today - “ The tears roll down his cheeks without his permission and Graves draws in a few ragged breaths, trying to calm himself. “I was ready,” Graves says, voice breaking. “Ready to - to mend this. I don’t want to lose you, Newt.”
In the incredibly unlikely event that I ever end up being elected to political office, I’m gonna log into Wikipedia while the legislature is in session and edit articles chosen completely at random, just to make the folks who monitor for that sort of thing wonder. Let’s see the conspiracy theorists figure out why a government IP address from Canada is editing articles about the Sahara pump theory and Emerson, Arkansas.
there’s a glitch in my speaker system where the next song on the queue starts playing a few seconds before the current one ends. my sister was playing music through the speakers, and she queued “making things up again” from tbom after “you gotta die sometime” from falsettos. so the damn thing ends with, “you gotta die some time…what with all your aids and everything”
Ever since S4 I’ve been using the tag “S4 fuckery” on posts about things from the series that make no sense. So here’s a breakdown of reasons why I think S4 is fake and that TJLCers are meant to pick up on that.
**EDIT** Sorry–I forgot to put this under a cut the first time. **Please reblog this version!**
I fell asleep in the middle of a scene and woke up, and you know when you wake up you don’t quite know where you are? There’s nothing scarier than waking up in the middle of Game Of Thrones world – naked and everyone standing over you – and you go, ‘Oh my God, I’ve died and I’ve actually ended up in Westeros. — Kit Harington (insp.)
“No, I didn’t mean that. But it was, it was a better life. I don’t mean all the travelling and seeing aliens and spaceships and things. That don’t matter. The Doctor showed me a better way of living your life. You know, he showed you too. You don’t just give up. You don’t just let things happen. You make a stand. You say “no.” You have the guts to do what’s right when everyone else just runs away, and I just can’t…“
Okay, so an anon asked for this tutorial and I’m not quite sure if it’s what they wanted, and I’m sorry it’s super late. But basically, this is a tutorial for how I record video from Netflix/Amazon/Hulu etc. where it’s hard to download the video file from (in the cases that I can’t find the episode downloadable online or don’t want to torrent, etc.) so I can use the video for making gifs. You’ll need Quicktime, Photoshop, and (probably) an account for the website you’re trying to use the video from depending on what streaming service you’re using. Also please note, this tutorial is for recording video only, audio is harder to record with Quicktime and since this tutorial is only for making gifs, I’m not including how to do that.
