her first place

Hey if anyone can take a half blind kitten that’d be great. We’ve had her for weeks and are not suited or able to care for her 100% and get her all she needs. We have to keep her outside cause of other cats, she’s possibly sick, and the inability and stubbornness of others in the house not allowing us to keep her indoors will definitly make her condition worse. Not to mention its fall and its getting colder and started raining tonight.

All the places I called a few weeks back pulled “we take dogs” when I asked if they accepted cats into their shelters, a lot of people had expressed wanted but fell through immediatly, and we CANNOT keep her. There just isn’t space or the full ability to get her the medical help and proper space she needs.

So if you are in California (at least around the Modesto area – its the closest large city near us rip) and willing to take a little drive to own thr literally most affectionate kitten I’ve ever known, please message me, or @origamiscyclone , off anon. If you can’t, just spread this the best you can. We don’t need more people saying “I would but–” ; its not helpful for getting Karina (the kitten) a home, or for us to find her a safe place to stay.

We can show you pictures of her, tell you about her, whatever you need. She needs a good home and a steady home where she will get all she needs more than now.

Carmen's one goodass assistant and she loyal af! Been with Barba for 4 years now

DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW MUCH I LOVE CARMEN, ANON?!

SHE IS AMAZING AND I TRY TO FIT HER INTO EVERY BARISI FIC THAT I WRITE.

But yeah, she’s no-nonsense as fuck and super organized and almost as good at the condescending eye roll as Barba is, which is like, half of the reason that he hired her in the first place.

She always knows when Rafael is having bad days, and makes sure to refill his coffee pot and have a pastry of some sort waiting on his desk when he gets back from court. And she’ll reschedule his meetings with any defense attorneys, because she knows all about the migraines that those meetings cause Rafael.

Carmen was also the first person to find out about Rafael and Sonny before they’d disclosed.

Literally all Carmen was trying to do was bring Rafael the file that he requested, and she walked into her boss standing between Detective Carisi’s legs as he perched on Rafael’s desk, Rafael smiling and taking Sonny’s face into his hands to kiss him softly.

And they noticed her, of course, when she let out an, “Oh!” in surprise, and Carmen almost felt sick to her stomach at how quickly Rafael tried to beg her not to tell anyone, to keep it quiet, because as if she could ever do anything but.

Carmen was happy for her boss in that moment.

Extraordinarily so.

Because she’d walked in and seen him looking happy.

Carefree.

In love.

And if that meant less migraines, lower blood pressure, and happiness for her boss, Carmen would gladly keep her lips sealed.

She just makes sure to knock from then on.

Pearl Shattered Pink Diamond

So after the episode The Trial, I think it’s pretty clear who actually killed Pink Diamond. The Crewniverse is all about foreshadowing. Things have been foreshadowed or hinted at or left loose ended for sometimes anywhere between 50 to over 100 episodes.

Now, the show has been dropping hints literally since the series began that Pearl might have actually been the one to do the deed. But, I think that Zircon finally puts all the pieces together that were needed to confirm that it was Pearl.


Exhibit A:

“All Gems have shapeshifting powers, Steven.” - Pearl, Cat Fingers (S1E6)

Well, that’s really interesting Pearl. Really interesting that we’ve seen Amethyst and Garnet and even Steven shapeshift, but never you. Do you have a traumatizing incident you’ve been covering up for 5,000 years that might have something to do with that?


Exhibit B

“Well, if you ever want to see a demonstration of proper sword techniques, I’d be happy to show you.“ - Pearl, Steven the Sword Fighter

We’ve known for a LONG time that Pearl is a master with swords. And what shattered Pink Diamond? A sword.

“Who cares about her shield? Her huge sword is what I remember.” - Eyeball, Bubbled

“It was a sword! You…shattered her…with a sword!” - Blue Diamond, The Trial

It’s been mentioned a few times. Now, we ASSUME that it was Rose Quartz’s giant pink sword that Steven pulled from Lion’s mane. But, nobody has ever actually described it as such that was a witness. All that has been said is that it was a (huge) sword. That would be just the kind of thing the crew would use to try to throw us off the trail. Rose Quartz isn’t even shown using a sword in The Answer, but Pearl wields two. She has been working with swords for seemingly far longer than Rose.


Exhibit C:

That’s an nice looking insignia you have on your uniform there, Pearl. Say, aren’t you heading to Homeworld? Isn’t it the proper thing to do there to show off your loyalty to your Diamond? Look at that Pink Diamond on your chest there.


Exhibit D:

“I was there. I saw it with my own eye.” - Eyeball, Back to the Moon

Now, at this VERY MOMENT that this line is stated, Eyeball is currently being duped into thinking Amethyst is Jasper, just because she shapeshifted into someone that looks like Jasper. She’s purple. Jasper is orange. Added to the baseball game the Rubies were also duped into playing, Rubies can be EASILY fooled. Even when it comes to the shapeshifting department.


Exhibit E:

Now, Pearl’s expression here could mean much the same as Garnet’s. Garnet didn’t plan for Steven to find out like this. Neither did Pearl. But is Pearl, perhaps, much more worried that Steven will find out the REAL truth of who shattered Pink Diamond? Her reaction is just so much more dramatic, like her reaction is based on a different set of feelings than Garnet’s. Maybe this one is reaching a little bit, but let’s move on.


Exhibit F:

“Does this have anything to do with Pink Diamond? I already know mom shattered her, so what is it about this that you can’t tell me?” - Steven, Steven’s Dream

“Please, you’re making Pearl very upset.” - Garnet, Steven’s Dream

Why would Pearl be so upset about Pink Diamond’s palanquin? Or about Pink Diamond being shattered? Sure, it was an awful event. But it was helpful to the rebels. And Rose Quartz did it, anyway, so why would Pearl have reason to feel bad or be overly upset about? I mean, it could be because she used to belong to Pink Diamond and betrayed her and shattered her, but you know, that’s just a theory.

But you know, it would be really bad if Steven and the other Crystal Gems found out that not only did Pearl lie to them, but Rose Quartz as well. By the way Steven, your mom wasn’t quite as horrible as you were told. By the way, that gem you’ve been looking up to as the most mom like is the real shatterer.


Exhibit G:

“Because at the time that Pink was shattered, Rose Quartz had been a recognized threat for several hundred years. There were no Rose Quartz soldiers in her entourage and none in her guard. So how did a Rose Quartz, with no business being anywhere near Pink Diamond, get so close to her in the first place? Where were Pink Diamond’s attendants, Her Agates, Her Sapphires? And where was her Pearl?- Zircon, The Trial

It seems VERY significant that the crew would have that question be at the very end of Zircon’s line. Almost like they were trying to make it stand out on purpose.

But, much much more than that, Zircon stated that Pink Diamond had Sapphires on her court. Those who could see the future. Who would be looking into it for when and where Rose Quartz would strike next. Their focus would be on her. Their focus would be on looking towards outside threats to their Diamond.

Where would their focus not be? On the most trusted member of Pink Diamond’s court. The gem who was closer to her than any other gem, even a Diamond. Her Pearl.

Why would Homeworld even consider that a Pearl could think for herself? That a Pearl had the ability to shapeshift? They wouldn’t know. And when the dust settled and all that remained was a shocked Pearl and no Rose Quartz… who would be called as the MAIN witness to the crime? The gem who would have been RIGHT be her side during the whole ordeal. Her Pearl. A gem known to be able to holographicly replay and recreate events. Someone who was already a record keeper.


Exhibit H:

“Even if she did, wouldn’t her Pearl have cried out in her alarm, “Watch out, My Diamond!"” - Zircon, The Trial

Zircon is absolutely correct. Why would her Pearl have not been able to warn her? Even if all her guards and all her future seeking Sapphires somehow missed all of Rose Quartz’s planning and her sneaking up on them, why would the gem closest to her not give out any warning? But the line goes on to provide far more evidence.

“No, whoever did this was already close to Pink Diamond. Someone her guards would allow to get near her, someone she would listen to when asked to stop her palanquin, and step outside, and someone with the authority to cover it up afterward!” - Zircon, The Trial

The only thing Zircon got wrong was the part about authority. A Pearl would have been a record keeper. Able to, as previously stated, replay the event of Pink Diamond being shattered in its entirety, from her own point of view. Able to muddle the details of the event, seeming as if she was watching it all happen in shocked horror, while quickly committing the crime herself, instead. Someone the Diamonds would have trusted to be truthful, because why would she lie about the oh so tragic death of her Diamond?

All eyes would have been on Rose Quartz. Nobody would have been paying attention to her Pearl. Nobody would ever pay attention to a simple Pearl. They are, after all, just Pearls.

Yet, who would have been closer but the Pearl traveling WITH her INSIDE her palanquin? Who might have suggested they stop, and who might Pink Diamond have listened to? Who would the Sapphires never have their future vision turned towards? And who could have flubbed the story to cover it up after?


Exhibit I:

“I want to hear what she has to say.” - Blue Diamond, The Trial

“How? How did you do it?” - Blue Diamond, The Trial

“How did you shatter Pink Diamond?” - Blue Diamond, The Trial

“But the question no one seems to be asking is, "how?"” - Zircon, The Trial

"I’ve been asking that question.” - Blue Diamond, The Trial

THIS is why Blue Diamond is so adamant about knowing HOW Rose Quartz did it. Being able to slip past future vision and slip past guards was not built into the genetic make up of the Rose Quartz gems. How, then, did Rose come to possess such powers?! That is what is driving Blue Diamond crazy. But you know what? Rose Quartz didn’t possess those powers. Because Rose Quartz didn’t do it. Homeworld, the Diamonds, and even all the rebel forces on Rose Quartz’s side, were only meant to believe that she did.


Finally:

Consider that we know NOTHING of Pearl’s backstory. NOTHING. We do not know who owned her on Homeworld. We do not know when she rebelled.

We’ve gotten origin stories for Garnet and Amethyst, but Pearl remains shrouded in mystery despite us being 132 episodes into the series.

Why would it be such a secret if it wasn’t a big deal? Her backstory has remained scarce, been dodged around, and avoided. Something very important to the series is hidden in her backstory, in her history. Something that I think is going to be revealed very soon.

Favourite characters: Summer Smith (Rick and Morty)

You don’t love people in hopes of a reward, dad. You love them unconditionally.

Past and present generations. 

I’m more of a Callie kind of guy to be honest but Marie in the new trailer got my mind going crazy. Here’s my little idea about what she’ll look like. 

I like playing someone who wasn’t cautious, who was in the moment and made impulsive decisions, which is what attracted me to her in the first place. I think you’re attracted to things that are different from yourself in a character because it’s more interesting, and you get to play out a fantasy version of yourself.

season 13 Dean is season 1 Sam

Originally posted by rosewhipped22

I wrote after 12x23 aired that it was subverting and reverse-mirroring season 1 in many ways (Mary/John etc) but damnnnn the Sam/Dean reversal has been absolutely thrown in our faces already and I love it.

There are so many recurring instances of Sam having nightmares / not being able to sleep because he’s seeing Jess dying over and over again in season 1.

Now call me crazy but I expect to see the same for Dean in season 13 for Cas and Mary even more after 13x01.

I also hope and expect to see Sam supporting Dean through this just as Dean did for him in season 1, however with the extra added bonus of Sam’s own grief as he cares for Cas and Mary too, but this time showing the difference nature of their grief.

Both Cas and Mary are linked to Jess now after 12x23 and 13x01.

Cas is the lost lover (I don’t make the rules). Dean drops to his knees just as Sam did in front of Jess’ grave. Sam then tells Jess in death, similarly to a prayer, that he wishes he had told her the truth… well we can always hope I guess but even this feels fanfic to another level that perhaps even Dabb won’t go to for Dean :p

Mary is Jess again too after 13x01 purposefully and unnecessarily linked them through Dean’s dream of her burning on the ceiling just like Jess did. Even though that’s not how she was lost to them this time, it feels to me like it’s just here to hammer home this reminder… for reasons.

Plus 1x05: Dean to Sam “This is about Jessica isn’t it. You think she’s your dirty little secret, that you killed her somehow…” *insert Miriam telling Dean he got Cas killed* “…Sam this has gotta stop man, I mean the nightmares and calling her name out in the middle of the night, it’s gonna kill you. Listen to me, it wasn’t your fault, if you want to blame something blame the thing that killed her, hell, if you want to swing at me, I’m the one that dragged you away from her in the first place

TL;DR it makes zero sense to me if the next few episodes don’t have at least one instance or a reference to Dean having nightmares about Cas and Mary.

hyosung takes no shit from any man

I really like that this episode clarifies the reason Rick hates Jerry: because he feels Jerry robbed Beth of her opportunities when he got her pregnant young, and then persuaded her to go through with the pregnancy against her prior intentions.

Rick’s anger isn’t about Jerry ‘touching’ his then-teenage daughter, or even really the fact he knocked her up in the first place. Rather it’s about Beth having been pushed in to motherhood too early. He knows his daughter is an incredibly smart, determined, passionate woman, but by having a child when she was really just a kid herself she was prevented from fulfilling her dreams. And Rick seems genuinely upset by this.
