court ball

quick little personal headcanons about homeworld balls being a thing:

- balls were intended for the diamonds and the members of their courts, though on the occasion lower-class gems were allowed to attend if an invitation was received or someone from the court brought them along.

- balls were typically hosted by blue diamond or pink diamond, with yellow diamond and white diamond choosing to host them less frequently.

- if more than one diamond attended, this was the best opportunity for gems of different colonies to converse and get a chance to spend time with one another.

- the authority chose to stop hosting balls after pink’s shattering.

“i want them to hear your story. and know that there is a special strength…” as i spoke i realized i needed to hear it, know it, too. “a special strength in enduring such dark trials and hardships… and still remaining warm, and kind. still willing to trust–and reach out.”

Today I went to go see the Engeki Haikyuu poster in Shibuya Station~
Shouri told me to go take this photo for the both of us, so I took one with the both of us in it! 
I was a little nervous, ha.  
Happy now? Shouri!

I’ve always wanted to do that! 🏐🏀

I’m just saying…

If Sidney Crosby or Jonathan Toews donated 50 thousand dollars of their own money to build a ball hockey court for the children of their communities the NHL would be all over it. Tyler Seguin doesn’t even get a retweet…or acknowledged at all. It’s infuriating.

Okay but consider this: lil bby Tobio always getting ignored during play time, whether it was during recess or at the park. 

He never got picked for teams, wasn’t approached during tag, the ball not passed to him in soccer, and not even looked for during hide and seek. 

That’s why he wanted to become a setter: his team had to give him the ball if he was in that position, and then he could finally play with them and befriend them like he’s been wanting to. 

What he didn’t realize was that being able to play with them didn’t mean they liked him. 

What he didn’t realize was that even if he got sent the ball 

they could still reject him

Danny Fenton was well known for many things among his school peers.

His absurdly frequent bathroom breaks, his strange ghost hunting parents, all the pencils he owned having their ends chewed clean off, his habit of falling asleep in literally every class…

One thing he was never even remotely well known for was his talent in gym, namely because he had never shown any skill in the realm of sports in his entire teenage life, due mostly to his habit of kicking anything but the ball and his inability to even show up half the time.

Which is why Mrs. Tetslaff’s class stared in stunned confusion as they tried to process how the only person left facing down Dash the-dodgeball-champion Baxter could possibly be scrawny, little Danny can’t-catch-a-ball-to-save-his-life Fenton.
