People don’t cheat. That’s a philosophy that was wired in everyone’s brain from day one.
Cheating is bad, their parents would say, don’t do it. It hurts peoples’ feelings.
Yet here Mark lays, a girl who isn’t his girlfriend, cuddled up on his bare chest, sleeping soundly. He can’t help his fingers going across her skin, and he can’t help the feeling of wanting to kiss her forehead just because.
This girl may not have been his girlfriend, but it was his best friend. Someone he confided in so much, and so whole heartedly because they’d been friends since the beginning. But he didn’t think last night, when he came over, that he would wake up in her bed, naked, and have her sleeping next to him, also naked.
On April 24, 1915, Ottoman Turkey began the annihilation of the Armenian people, killing 1.5 million Armenians, and creating the first genocide of the 20th century. Turkey has attempted to keep this genocide forgotten, however, the blood that runs in the veins of the descendants of the survivors has not allowed that to happen. While some countries have recognized it as a genocide, we still have struggled to obtain complete worldwide recognition. The Turkish government continues not to take blame for what their forefather have done. They deny any and all of those actions, despite the outstanding amount of evidence.
Tumblr, what I ask you today is to please reblog this to educate your followers, so that they may pass it on as well. Within this month, do something small. Maybe, post something on your social media having to do with the genocide, so that the people you know may be educated and pass the word on. If you are really wanting to get involved, there will be marches all over the world to get recognition. I know this is a website full of people who stand for activism. Please, help educate the world on this matter. It would mean a lot to me, who lost ancestors during that time, and other Armenians who share the same story. Thank you.
this years holocaust remembrance day is very important, given the current political climate. take today to remember the horrifying acts committed against jewish and romani people. take today to recognize the beginning of those same acts forming against PoC in america today. take today to resist those in power however you see fit, and after today, dont stop resisting. i am a jew still personally affected by the holocaust even 2 generations later. every jew is affected by the shoah, but there is a special pain to know what happened to your own family. or worse, not knowing what happened to the unknown people you see in old family photographs. we as a people will never be the same. remember the holocaust today. dont let this happen again.
Stop me if y'all’ve heard this before, but I just brought together a Steven Universe theory.
So there’s a theory going around that White Diamond has the power to alter memories, right? This is supported largely by Centipeetle’s drawings where her memories are ‘whited out.’
She also draws her and her crew with green hair in all pics before the Whiteout. That could just be for the sake of ease, but you never know.
It’s also generally accepted that the attempt to remember is what worsens the corruption.
Now this’ll seem like a tangent, but it’ll all come together by the end.
We are all pretty familiar with this image by now:
Now I’d like to juxtapose the above with the following, focusing mostly on the hair.
You could try to say that the dark blue hair in the mural is just her cowl, but take a closer look at the gif. Even if that is the case, something is off.
While we can’t very clearly see her hair color in the above gif (though given that it’s the exact same shade as the rest of the cowl when there’s enough light to shine on both her lips and her diamond makes me inclined to believe that it is a shade of blue, rather than white), we can see that it does not go across her chest as it does in the modern day:
Now, some people who have pointed out the hair change just chalk it up to the crewniverse having been unsure of her design. While that’s not impossible, it does seem super unlikely lmao.
What seems more likely to me personally, and this is where I’m gonna tie it all back together, is that Blue changes because of White Diamond (or her currently unknown agents) directly.
See, we know a couple things. One, that Blue believes that Pink was shattered by Rose via a Sword:
(Can’t find a subbed gif, but there’s her whole “It was a SWORD” thing during the trial.)
Two, that Rose’s sword can never shatter any gem, much less a Diamond:
So here we have:
* Centipeetle having a tampered-with memory *Centipeetle having white hair (but drawing herself and her crew with green hair before the white diamond memory tampering) *Centipeetle having named the diamond authority as the people who tampered with said memory *Centipeetle being corrupted as a result.
*Blue having blue, or at least, noticeably different hair before Pink’s shattering *Blue having misinformation (or faulty memory) regarding Pink’s shattering *Blue now having white hair.
Soooo tldr: White Diamond fucked with Blue’s memory just like she did with the Centipeetle crew’s. This left all of them with white hair.
And just for shits and giggles, let’s have a bonus round.
Guess who else has solidly white (and not tinted, as with Holly Blue, Opal, Malechite, Jasper pre-corruption, etc) hair?
Another corrupted gem.
Bonus bonus round:
If White Diamond tampering with memories gives gems white hair, and if that is also tied to gem corruption, and if touching on the forgotten and/or altered memories quickens that corruption, it would add an entire other dimension to Yellow Diamond wanting to get the trial over with as quickly as possible. (Also, why she wants to keep Blue away from all of Pink’s stuff, beyond that just being her style of grieving)
If White Diamond altered Blue’s memories, as I suspect she did, then Yellow (who hasn’t changed, as far as I can tell) would want to prevent any corruption of Blue that might come as a result.
