Hey Manda have you seen SliceofOtaku new theory video "Amethyst and Holly Blue Agate Closer Than You Think!?" If so thoughts?

I watched the video earlier, and lemme tell you- HELL YES.

Quick summary for the folks who haven’t seen the video; it was talking about how Amethyst’s whip is incredibly rare for an Amethyst, as it’s a symbol of keeping in charge and holding the ranks, and how that could translate into her possibly leading the Famethyst one day.

There’s much more to it, of course, and here’s a link to the video for those interested. (I’m not gonna spoil an entire theory video for ya’ll- that’s not fair to the creator) 

I haven’t said much on the topic of Amethyst’s arc as of late, mostly because I didn’t know where it was going. Now that Amethyst has Steven, what was next? Confront the Gems? That’s not her style. Reform Jasper? I’m betting on her being a key player, but that will be Jasper’s arc, not just her’s. 

I was waiting for Tiger Philanthropist, seeing how it sounds like a possible Amethyst-Steven-Smoky Quartz episode (wrestling was coined as their thing season one), before making any real remarks either way.

And this… this would be epic!

The Famethyst deserve a great leader, and while I like Holly Blue (pleasegetaredemptionarcpleasgetaredemptionarcpleasegetaredemptionarc) she certainly ain’t it. If they end up on Earth permanently (PLEASE LET THE FAM AND THE RUBIES LIVE ON EARTH) they’ll need someone Earth-savy to help them find their place- their Ohana, so to speak- who knows how they think and how they learn. 

Who better than Amethyst?

Amethyst herself has far outgrown her original immaturity. She loves a good prank, as always, but she’s done so much for the Crystal Gems. Just look at the Week of Sardonyx alone. It would be an amazing turnout for her to become leader of the Fam.

It’d also be a great learning experience for the Famethyst. The moment they see her whip, they’ll see her as their leader. But Amethyst wouldn’t accept that. She wouldn’t accept anything having to do with Homeworld’s teachings in comparison to her.

They won’t put her in charge because of her whip. They’ll put her in charge because she’s their Littlest Sister and they believe in her.

Damnit, I’ve fallen in love with Leader Amethyst…. give me more….

(Also, on an off note… imagine Pearl and Garnet’s reaction to Leader Amethyst. Like holy cow when did our Amethyst get old enough to lead a mini-rebellion… we’re so proud of her….)

Even though I was secretly hoping that there would be a little Yoonseok in today’s Run BTS episode I WASN’T EXPECTING THIS MUCH. Like, the way Hobi just gently moved his hand to Yoongi’s neck and then pulled him in a little closer? UGH

HELLO FELLOW """from seattle""" PERSON! (sorry if this feels weird. I saw your comment on coelasquid's post and just had to laugh and highfive. There are people IN SEATTLE who have no idea where my area is.)


One of the most amazing things that can happen is finding someone who sees everything you are and won’t let you be anything less. They see the potential of you. They see endless possibilities. And through their eyes, you start to see yourself the same way as someone who matters. As someone who can make a difference in the world. If you’re lucky enough to find this person, never let them go.

Tomorrow on Dec 3rd, 2016, Dave Strider is going to be turning 21 and if not fictional, would finally be able to go out and legally drink in the US. On the other hand, Dirk Strider is going to be turning negative 393 and therefore cannot drink. Poor Dirk isn’t technically born until the year 2409. Imagine trying to explain that to a bartender.
