emotional expressions

the tone of alec’s “thank you” in the sneak peak i so important to me cause while it doesn’t sound force, it still sounds as if he’s struggling to say it. just a tiny bit. not because he doesn’t mean it or because he doesn’t want to say it, but because things like that are difficult to say out loud when you aren’t used to expressing your emotions. and it fits so well with his struggle with apologies.

edit: just wanted to add that i can’t wait to see alec getting comfortable enough with magnus to be able to express his emotions freely and with struggling

Part 1: So the phase MeepMorp is the word that Lapis and Peridot use to describe art. But where did this word come from? Homeworld Gems are not that great at expressing emotions, they just aren't supposed to. So they don't know how to talk about them with each other. But I believe the words "Meep" and "Morp" are Lapis and Peridot's way of expressing positive and negative emotions. Meep being all the positive emotions and Morp being the negative emotions.

Part 2: When creating their first piece of art together they were unsure of what to call their first creation. Lapis said Morp and Peridot said Meep. They settled on Meep Morp due to the way that creating the art made them feel based on their emotions during their time on Earth. Lapis negative (Morp) emotions and Peridot positive (Meep) emotions. They enjoyed their creation and wanted to make another, but because it would serve them the same purpose as the first Meep Morp, and on Homeworld they-            

Part 3: call Gems with the same purpose by the same name, so the next one was called Meep Morp too. But then they realized that they left their creators and now serve different purposes in life, so they give their next Meep Morp a name all its own. This is where the other Meep Morps get their names. Eventually this will lead to Peridot and Lapis giving each other personal names away from their purpose which will be a first in Gem individuality.        

Part 4: Which fits since each Crystal Gem has shown some way to break free from the shell of expectation. Garnet is an inter-gem fusion, Pearl is without an owner, Amethyst is flawed, Steven is a half-breed, and Lapis and Peridot are the first to have unique names.             

Wow - this is an amazing theory, @ purplejester!  Thanks so much for sharing it with us!

i grew up in an emotionally cold environment. showing warmth, affection, and intimacy is hard for me. I want to so badly. It bubbles to the surface when im stoned...i get all touchey feely, smiley, and sunny. I think fear/habit causes me to hide it. im a girl so perhaps this is unexpected bc we're supposed to be expressive and emotional. how can i get more comfortable radiating warmth and love?

You radiate as much warmth and love as you feel comfortable doing. Sometimes different people will bring this out of you more than others. Try to be around those people. But if youd simply jus like to be more loving and caring in your actions just try little by little dont be afraid of how anyone sees it.. end of the day youll be happy you did. there are plenty of people that wont show it back and wont notice but the few that do, they are worth opening up to especially if u feel the want to

it’s the fact they have been through so much that makes it so hard for me to stop crying tbh. 

it’s the fact that they went through so much as trainees in such a competitive world such as kpop where some managing labels go so far as to physically abuse or even mentally abuse idols into acting a way they want (and it’s the fact that this very well most likely happened to bts with that mishap with their one manager last year). it’s the fact that they’ve been told they wouldn’t make it, the fact that they’ve struggled so hard to prove them all wrong and to deliver each comeback with such precise choreo; the fact that they’ve literally worked big hit from the bottom up, going from having to use their manager’s car while filming mvs to exploding cars and hiring hundreds of extras in only a few years time; the fact that, the one time in kobe when they couldn’t perform, yoongi was so physically hurt and depressed that he had let the fans, that he had let us, down that he went back to the stage in kobe; the fact that he cried and then said that he knows crying is losing only to burst into tears tonight for winning artist of the year because he hasn’t lost, because he’s won something he’s been striving for for so long; it’s the fact that namjoon, the smart leader who always knows how to carry the group through thick and thin, was physically speechless and started crying even before he could talk because he’s talked about being depressed and feeling useless and now he’s won such a huge award; it’s the fact that these boys have been with each other through literally everything with awkward and shy trainee days, to becoming family when they can’t even have the chance to see their own biological family, to encouraging jungkook to come out of his shell and for consoling taehyung when his grandmother passed away. it’s the fact that they’ve tried so hard to win a daesang and they’ve finally did it and it’s only the beginning of more wonderful achievements to come, 

and I couldn’t be prouder.  

You ruin your life by desensitizing yourself. We are all afraid to say too much, to feel too deeply, to let people know what they mean to us. Caring is not synonymous with crazy. Expressing to someone how special they are to you will make you vulnerable. There is no denying that. However, that is nothing to be ashamed of. There is something breathtakingly beautiful in the moments of smaller magic that occur when you strip down and are honest with those who are important to you. Let that girl know that she inspires you. Tell your mother you love her in front of your friends. Express, express, express. Open yourself up, do not harden yourself to the world, and be bold in who, and how you love. There is courage in that.

Day 18: Magnus + Eyes

Minutes after he’d ended the call, he could still hear Maryse’s voice in his head, and her scoff that he was once again at Magnus’. He had assumed that the three months would have been enough time for her to get over the fact that he’d chosen Magnus, but his mother was nothing if not persistent in telling him the many reasons why he shouldn’t waste his time with Magnus Bane.

“Still asking you why you’re with Magnus,” Izzy asked when he sighed.

Alec nodded. “Now, she’s asking me what I see in him.” Alec made a face. “Like seriously. What kind of question is that?”

“You should have just told her he has a big dick,” Jace said, with a casual shrug of his shoulders.

“Jace!” Alec exclaimed, not like it did anything for Jace who just stared calmly right back at him.
