A ship full of boys needs a precious gem to help find their lost mentor, but the Princess who owns it won’t give it up without a fight. The simple Search and Rescue mission soon becomes an adventure holding the fate of the entire Poseidon Ocean in the hands of a ship full of children.

Zack Underwood: Stand-in-Captain of the Chronological Voyager (Chrono for short). His real position is First Mate to the ship’s owner, Sir Ortin Mahlson, the greatest adventurer in the Seven Seas. Native from the Desecrated Island of Nila, he comes from humble roots, the son of the Royal Fitter and Seamstress. He holds resentment to anyone rich (Noblemen, besides the Royals). Zack was the first of many of Mahlson’s boy students, when the man decided to begin teaching boys how to sail and the wonders of the Seas in the Seven Kingoms. Zack has been his student since he was 4, and knows the most of all the young crew about Mahlson’s journals and studies, and has a vast knowledge of the seas. He is proud and secretive, and only the crew knows why he is so cautious around the newcomer. His pride is challenged when Princess Melissa refuses to give him the Gem he needs to find Mahlson, and he finds himself having to work with a stubborn yet pretty Royal.

Milo Murphy: Orphan found on the Island of Auria. While Zack is proud and strict, Milo is the optimism needed on their journey. And he is for good reason, being cursed since birth. Found with a stray puppy by Zack at the age of 4, Milo has been part of Mahlson’s students since the beginning, and has known nothing but the Chrono as his home. Milo is nimble, and his alertness has gotten the Chrono out of many a sticky situation. While liked by the entire crew, only Zack is brave enough to spend more than five minutes within twelve feet of Milo (that isn’t to say Zack isn’t aware of the Murphy Curse; he just sets it aside half the time because they’re best friends). When Melissa joins the crew, Milo immediately befriends her, much to Zack’s dismay.

Princess Melissa Chase: Princess and only daughter of the King of Soleah, the Island Ruled by the Daylight and the Seven Kingdoms’ Strongest Defense against outside foes. She longs for adventures beyond her Island. Her father has become anxious, and this keeps him busy and away from her. Her only companion is her handmaiden Amanda, and the High Princess, daughter of the High Rulers of the Seven Seas. That is, until she “kidnaps herself” aboard the Chrono, striking a deal with the young Captain for the Gem passed down from her father. Learning that the ship belongs to her Hero and Inspiration, Sir Mahlson, Melissa refuses to leave. She enjoys challenging Zack and competing with him, and thinks only of adventure, until she makes a discovery that threatens the friendship between Zack and Milo, and the safety of their ship.

*****

And yes, Diogee has 4 peglegs.

@spatziline​ and I will eventually give away more of this AU, which includes several adventures and two giant ones. Zack and Meli’s friendship is reversed in this au, where Zack has known Milo forever instead of Meli. Many more MML characters will show up. We also have music to go with everything, and a Map of the Seven Islands.

evergloriousoverlord  asked:

So, about medieval warfare and magic. You said you had a lot to say about integrating magic to a medieval worlds and militaries.

Yes, I do. It’s one of the more irritating things I see in traditional high fantasy.  The people of the world don’t take into account the magic that exists in their world. If magic can be learned, it will become a part of the power structure of the world, finding uses in everything from war to statecraft to even the smallest aspects of life. When medieval armies act in the same fashion as their historical counterparts, without incorporating the differences, it’s a huge red flag that the worldbuilding was not done to my satisfaction, and, even if I elect to continue reading, I’m going to spend all my time picking out the logical errors and complaining rather than enjoying the novel.

So, with that being said, how can a writer include magic into their world in a wholly organic fashion? This requires thinking long and hard about what magic is in your universe, how it works (and how it doesn’t), what it can do, and how common it is. I’ll preface this by saying that these are simply my opinions and things I find appealing in a good setting. You may not like them, and you may even think the things I’m complaining about are things that you enjoy. That’s fine.

Anyway, let’s go examine what we need to do, and provide some examples, so your worlds can be as seamless as possible.

*cracks knuckles* okay, let me lay this out for ya

COMPREHENSIVE GUIDE TO WHY AKU IS ALMOST CERTAINLY GENDERLESS

- If y'all have seen The Birth of Evil then you know that Aku is a tiny fragment of an eldritch abomination that fell to Earth and was accidentally given a consciousness through a failed magic spell. fucking none of that has to do with humans or even organic life. that black thing at the beginning of Birth of Evil didn’t have a gender, so stop assuming Aku MUST be a dude just because he has a beard and a male voice actor.

- I’m assuming that you’re the same anon because you made the same mistake both times: unless someone has a habit of referring to themselves in the third person, which Aku does not, you will never use gendered pronouns to refer to yourself. You will use I/me/my, which remains the same no matter what gender you are. and that’s all Aku ever uses. as for calling himself a king, it’s quite possible that he just figured that’s what the supreme high rulers among humans are called and thus it would be appropriate to call himself that. there are also non-men throughout history who have called themselves kings for that very reason.

- yes, Aku knows what gender IS, but that doesn’t mean he has one or understands what it works. I know what the Theory of Relativity is, but don’t fuckin ask me to explain it to you. he’s a trickster and he’s not above using human weaknesses and shapeshifting against them, which includes turning into Ikra, showing him very comfortably transforming into a woman doesn’t exactly help your argument that he’s cis.

- consider the fact that in Aku’s Fairy Tales, he cast himself as Little Red Riding Hood, and later tried to cast Jack as Cinderella’s evil stepmother and stepsisters only to have one of the children point out to him that Jack is a man. almost like he wasn’t quite sure how that worked and the comedy came from his ignorance!!

- where the fuck do you get Aku being straight from, he has literally never shown even the slightest sexual attraction to anyone or anything??

in conclusion: Aku isn’t cis so git gud

Okay, I think this needs to be said but Thranduil DOES NOT think that he is “higher” than the Silvans elves.  One thing I hate about the Hobbit movie trying to incriminate him, is it made it seem like he thought lowly of Tauriel because she was a silvan elf, but that is not the case. Yes, Thranduil is a Sindar elf and it’s common for High Elves in general to believe like they are higher/better than the Silvan elves.  But for Thranduil that is not the cases. Tolkien specifically made it so that Thranduil and Oropher (Thranduil’s father), were the ONLY high elven kings/rulers who absorbed the Silvan elf culture rather than erase it and impose their own (I could count Amroth but not right now). 

In the 3rd Age, Thranduil is the only elven ruler who actually respects and preserves the Silvan culture.
He is the only one who does not put himself above the Silvan elves, but acts equal to them. Thranduil actually raised Legolas up as a Silvan elf and it’s speculated Thranduil took a Silvan bride. That is an important part of his character and I HATE that Jackson took that away from him to make him look like the villain when Azog was alive and well.
That whole “you wouldn’t let your son pledge himself to a lowly silvan elf” is not the Thranduil that Tolkien created. It’s just PJ trying to make Thranduil some evil ruler to Tauriel and Legolas so he can ruin their non-existent romance.
But that is not Thranduil’s character at all. It is a VERY important part of Thranduil’s character that he is the only elven ruler to have absorbed the Silvan culture, not destroy it. And it pisses me off to no end that Jackson did that. Like if Thranduil hated Tauriel than TRUST ME, it wasn’t because she was Silvan elf. AND just to note I love Tauriel, but I hate how Jackson handled Tauriel and Thranduil’s characters and that interaction, and a lot of other interactions between them do Thranduil’s canon character no justice (or Tauriel’s canon character for that matter).

anonymous asked:

Do you have any hcs about how Mori, Fitzgerald, Hawthorne, and Steinbeck would go about trying to court someone they were interested in?

Mori Ougai

  • Before he begins his pursuit in earnest, Mori consults Elise. No matter how much you’ve piqued his interest (probably quite a bit, considering that he’s chasing after you for more than just what’s in your pants), the girl has to give you her stamp of approval. Without Elise’s favor, the match will simply fall apart; thus, he checks sooner rather than later. She’ll tease him of course, denying you initially, but after he’s begged enough she’ll grant the go-ahead. After that, there’s no shaking the leader of the Port Mafia.
  • Mori’s a textbook gentleman whenever you’re together. Many of the manners completely lost on younger men manifest in the Port Mafia’s leader. He never neglects to pull out your chair when you sit, or offer the crook of his arm, escorting you wherever you wish. Mori’s hands remain exactly where they belong; he never tries to sneak in subtle, ‘accidental’ brushes to somewhere a bit too sensitive for mere acquaintances. No matter what you’re wearing, he keeps his eyes out of danger, as well (at least, you’ve never caught him eyeing you up).
  • Despite his manners, Mori makes his intentions perfectly clear. There’s no way you can misinterpret his politeness for indifference. He’s constantly inviting you on lavish ‘outings’ (titling them as ‘dates’ would be much too forward, after all) and slipping subtle hints that he’s after more than just your friendship.
  • Especially if he’s not getting the response he’s after, Mori’s immediately orchestrating schemes to draw you to him. Though she doesn’t exactly approve of the Port Mafia’s leader seeking after you, Kouyou is often brought into these missions; such a game is simply too tantalizing for her to pass up. Regardless of whether she’s drawn to you personally, Kouyou’s often in your company. At Mori’s request, she fills your ears with countless tidbits and gossip about his genuine liking for you, teasingly prodding you as to when you’re going to accept his hand.
  • While he wouldn’t dream of putting you in actual danger, Mori orchestrates menacing situations to see how you react when confronted with threats. Getting serious would shove you in harm’s way whether you like it or not, and he needs to be assured that you can handle the stresses of being a target. Plus, the way you cling to him after he ‘saves’ you is a delightful side benefit.

Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald

  • As soon as you attract Fitzgerald’s curiosity, it’s no-holds-barred. He’s determined that you’ll be his. With his money, attracting you will be a piece of cake; at least, that’s what Fitzgerald initially thinks. At every opportunity, he throws lavish parties, invites you to all of his various properties scattered around the globe, showers you in elaborate, expensive gifts, claiming that the ‘simple trinkets’ remind him of you. Fitzgerald waxes poetic every chance he gets, and when that doesn’t stick, he just tosses money at you in hopes that you’ll swoon.
  • If his cash doesn’t interest you, Fitzgerald is only that much more hell-bent on making you fall in love with him. Ever since he entered the world of the rich, that’s all anyone’s ever been drawn to. Fitzgerald decides he needs to know what makes you so different, and there’s no way he’s going to let you slip out of his grasp without finding what makes you tick.
  • Fitzgerald, like any ruler of high-society, is intimately acquainted with the power of rumors, and he will do anything to get people talking. All of his butlers and maids are encouraged to spread word about how often he’s at your elbow, the looks that swim through his blue eyes when he’s focusing on you, the fact that he’s been looking into romantic travel destinations recently. Fitzgerald’s hoping that the juicy details trickle down to your friends and family, eventually; he knows that he’s a hell of a catch, and anyone that truly cares for you should encourage you to make a move before he gets sick of chasing you and moves on. The gossip mill is Fitzgerald’s subtle way of tactically surrounding you, ensuring that he’s on your mind 24/7.
  • Fitzgerald doesn’t fully reign in his dramatic tendencies, but he does calm down around you. While he’s still a show-off, hoping to impress you with all of his numerous qualities, he wants to communicate that he’s not just an airheaded fop, on the prowl for pretty arm candy. Fitzgerald fully understands that his showy personality might make you think he’s after you just so that he has someone to chase, and he’ll do anything to assure you otherwise.

Nathaniel Hawthorne

  • When Hawthorne discovers his feelings for you, he’s a bit lost. Flirtation isn’t something that’s closely examined in theology textbooks; at least, not the respectable ones. Hawthorne doesn’t believe in fooling around with attractive lady he sets his eyes on, either, so he hasn’t exactly had much practice. Despite this, he’s convinced that wooing you won’t be so hard.
  • Hawthorne is more reserved at first; he dreads getting tangled up with someone he doesn’t truly care for, as his sense of duty would force him to stick with them. He doesn’t flirt at all until he’s completely sure that you’re exactly what he truly wants. Because of this, you might get some uninterested vibes when he first starts pursuing you, but don’t give up on him! Hawthorne’s only ensuring he doesn’t rush into something he’ll regret.
  • At first, Hawthorne’s quite casual with your conversations; much of your talks together seem built of only small talk, polite commentaries of the weather or what’s been headlining in the news. If Hawthorne hasn’t used these little chats to convince himself that he’s not really harboring feelings for you, though, your talks together will take an extremely sudden turn into deep topics, almost entirely without warning. Hawthorne can’t stand chitchat; at least, not when he’s truly trying to get to know someone. Once he’s sure that discussing such questions with you won’t make you uncomfortable, he starts in on the topics that’ll truly show what kind of a person you are. Your opinions on what life’s really about, what happens after death, if there’s any set ‘good’ and ‘evil’; this is what Hawthorne uses to color a picture of what you’re really like, and to determine if his feelings for you are more than a passing whim. Philosophy sessions, though they might not be romantic, exactly, are what bind his heart to yours.
  • Before he starts pursuing you in earnest, Hawthorne drops hints at his interest. While he doesn’t give a damn if anyone else is after you, too, he’ll back off if you’re looking at someone. The last thing he wants is an awkward confrontation and needlessly hurt feelings because he proved too bold. As soon as you pick up these hints, and start leaving a few of your own, it’s the last push Hawthorne needs to entirely make up his mind. At this point, he practically considers you engaged.
  • Though he’s gradual, and respectful as a perfect gentleman, Hawthorne seriously commits to romancing and makes surprisingly direct moves. Once he’s firmly made up his mind, he’s determined to show you just how much he really cares. Soon, lingering touches start happening more and more, Hawthorne taking every opportunity to brush his skin against yours. You’re often surprised with kisses; they’re light, and innocent, and pressed against your knuckles instead of your lips more often than not, but there’s no mistaking that’s what they truly are. Hawthorne’s suddenly surprisingly bold; there’s no mistaking the message he’s trying to send.

John Steinbeck

  • The moment Steinbeck decides you’re going to be his, you’ll know. He’s so open that only a brick wouldn’t pick up on the fact that he’s in pursuit. Hugs that last for a few beats too long to be just friendly, entirely shameless heated gazes that clearly show what’s on his mind, countless little tokens of affection ranging from sweets that his mother baked to books that he thinks you’ll enjoy; you’re not safe from any of it. Somehow, though, he knows how to keep just enough distance so that you don’t feel trapped or like he’s clinging to you
  • Though he doesn’t frame it as a date until he’s entirely sure you’re interested, Steinbeck invites you to every family function from Easter dinner to birthday celebrations. Anyone he’s pursuing needs the Steinbecks’ stamp of approval, and he figures it’s better to ensure his family adores you now than risk them rejecting you when he’s head-over-heels in love (he’d still marry you, of course, but it would be a hard decision between staying true to himself and letting down his family). Plus, he can’t wait to see how you react when his younger siblings inevitably accuse you two of dating (especially if he tells them yes, actually, you are, just to make you blush).
  • Pray that you don’t have a floral allergy, because with Steinbeck around, you’ll never escape the flowers. He quickly ferrets out what kind of blooms are your favorite, and from then on, they’re growing everywhere around you. Whether they be arranged in a bouquet for you and left with a sweet little note like ‘Y’know, I still think you’re prettier than these’, or sprouting all over the earth by where you work, flowers surround you at every turn. Maintaining the plants around you is Steinbeck’s subtle way of telling you you’re always on his mind.
  • Steinbeck invites you on outings practically everywhere, and once he’s certain that the term ‘date’ won’t send you running for the hills, that’s what he starts calling them. Even if he still hasn’t asked you to be his yet, he’ll still title every trip together a date. And there are a lot of trips together. Steinbeck’s a farm boy completely outside of anything he’s ever known, after all; so much piques his curiosity, and he figures there’s no better person to experience all of these new things with than you. Expect completely out of the blue calls from Steinbeck, inviting you along to some off the wall restaurant with boiled squid sushi, or to a farmer’s market a few miles outside of Yokohama’s borders. Nothing is too strange to drive Steinbeck away, and you can bet that if he’s running into something odd, he’ll make space for you to run into it, too.

10 REASONS WHY "JAWBREAKER" IS BETTER THAN "MEAN GIRLS"

Teen movies of the new millennium have legitimately lost their edge. 2004’s Mean Girls was decent but played it too safe. The 1999 theatrical release of the movie Jawbreaker marked the first real attempt at a dark teen comedy in a style reminiscent to the 1988 hit film Heathers. Panned by critics and ignored at the box office, it still managed to obtain cult classic status and remains one of my all-time favorite movies. I have yet to see another teen film that dares to take the risks Jawbreaker did.

Below are ten reasons why I think you should start cherishing Jawbreaker and stop giving Mean Girls so much undeserved hype:

1. BULLYING ASIDE, THERE’S AN ACTUAL MURDER

This 90’s movie gets straight to the point, having the story begin with a high-school clique of popular girls unintentionally murdering their best friend during a birthday prank gone horribly wrong. Mean Girls doesn’t even try to touch any subject matter of this sort.

I’ll never forget the image of their deceased BFF in the trunk with that giant jawbreaker protruding from her neck.

2. THERE’S AN UNDERSTANDABLE MAKEOVER

Dowdy Fern Mayo (Judy Greer) gets transformed into the mysterious Vylette, as HBIC Courtney’s favor for keeping her mouth shut about witnessing her clique’s concealment of their friend’s murder. The only makeover Lindsay Lohan underwent as Cady Herron in Mean Girls was dressing slightly better and wearing cosmetics.

3. COURTNEY SHAYNE MAKES REGINA GEORGE SEEM TOO NICE

This movie got Rose McGowan a nomination for Best Villain at the MTV Movie Awards. She didn’t win but really should have. Her portrayal of high-school queen bee and stylish femme fatale, Courtney Shayne, was spot on. Her character murdered her best friend, creatively covered it up, insulted her peers and pushed Vylette into a mirror until it cracked. Courtney Shayne was the ruthless high-school ruler Regina George wishes she could have been.

4. THEIR SCHOOL RULES WERE MORE INTENSE

The popular girls in Jawbreaker didn’t exclude pink to Wednesdays. What they did do was ensure they were never seen eating publicly, changing their personas to attract mass popularity, all while being unapologetically aggressive with men in order to get what they want. The ladies of Mean Girls seemed tame in comparison.

5. SPEAKING OF TAME, THE SEX IN THIS MOVIE IS ANYTHING BUT

The scene between Courtney, her hookup, and a popsicle is infamous. If you’ve seen Jawbreaker, you know exactly what I’m talking about. This movie doesn’t hide the fact that some of its characters like to get down and dirty, or sticky. Mean Girls did a lot of alluding while Jawbreaker got straight to the point.

6. EVEN THE FASHION WAS DARING

Do you remember Courtney’s sleeveless sweater with sheer cutouts, Julie’s groovy white framed rose-colored-lens sunglasses, or Vylette’s hot pink t-shirt with the word “bitch” emblazoned across it in black? The fashion from Jawbreaker is unforgettable and makes you miss some of the better styles people embraced in the 90’s.

7. THE AWESOME CELEBRITY CAMEOS

From Tatyana Ali to Marilyn MansonJawbreaker featured a surprising cast of well known and unknown actors. Even legendary female action star, Pam Grier, had a role in the film as the sassy detective investigating the murder of Liz Purr. Mean Girls was written by Tina Fey and featured new faces, familiar faces and some former SNL alumni, but Jawbreaker definitely wins for its riskier casting choices.

8. THE EPIC PROM FINALE

Not only were The Donnas the performing band in the movie’s prom, but the scene simultaneously documenting the rise and fall of Courtney Shayne was classically executed. Rose McGowan really did own this role and all of the corsages people pelted at her as she made her exit into social exile. Mean Girls’s Cady Herron shares her Spring Fling Queen tiara with the school and disbands its clique of popular girls, which would unlikely occur in reality. Again, Jawbreaker wins for its consistent edginess. 

9. THE MANY ONE-LINERS

No classic teen movie goes without its fair share of memorable one-liners and Jawbreaker is chock full of them. The reason I would choose its one-liners over the ones featured in Mean Girls is because of the excessive cussing and unforgiving tone they possess. I can’t say it enough. Mean Girls was too nice.

10. THE HALLWAY SCENES

Jawbreaker officially started the whole popular-clique-walking-down-a-high-school-hallway-to-cool-music scene and Mean Girls blatantly copied it. Hell, these kinds of scenes have become a teen movie standard nowadays and Jawbreaker definitely deserves its credit for pioneering that.

You may still prefer Mean Girls over Jawbreaker after reading this and you’re completely subject to that opinion. But the truth is, Jawbreaker is a fantastic movie and I wish more teen comedies dared to get as dark as it did without being as nice as Mean Girls, farcical as Heathers or as poorly executed as Jennifer’s Body.

Sweater Weather

This is not smut! However I would rate it PG-13.

Mornings you hated the most where ones where you woke up to a Crowley-less bed. And due to his high demand- he was ruler of hell after all- these mornings came more often than not. This particular morning though, you were missing Crowley more than usual, so you decided to grab one of Crowley’s sweaters rather than wear your own clothing, so you could be enveloped in his scent for the day. It wasn’t Crowley, but it was the next best thing. 

You took a shower, taking your time to relax and enjoy the calescent water pelting on your skin. After your shower you threw your- or rather Crowley’s- sweater on. You weren’t planning on going anywhere, and the sweater was long enough that it reached down to your thighs, so you didn’t bother with any underclothes or jeans. If you did happen to need to go out for some reason, you could throw on some real clothes first.

You spent the rest of your day like normal, catching up on shows you were currently watching, tidying up the house a little, doing some work at home. At noon you decided to make lunch, only to discover the cupboards were nearly bare and the refrigerator was in the same state. You really didn’t want to get out of your boyfriend’s cozy sweater, so instead you decided to call the man himself, and see- if he wasn’t too busy- if he could perhaps pick you up some milk. That way you could at least have macaroni and cheese, seeing as that was the only thing available to you at the moment. 

So, once you located your phone, you rang Crowley, and like always, he picked up immediately. “Good afternoon love,” he answered warmly, “to what do I owe the pleasure of your call?”

You smiled hearing Crowley’s voice for the first time all day, and for a moment you almost forgot to reply. “I was wondering, if you weren’t too busy, perhaps you could pick up some milk for me? We haven’t gone shopping yet, so all I have is macaroni and cheese.” You knew that Crowley could have pressing matters to attend to, so you didn’t want to uproot him if he was doing something important. 

You heard noises in the background and judging by how they got louder, you assumed Crowley was moving closer to them. “Of course love, I was just torturing someone for information, but I suppose I could speed up the process. After all, long and painful torture can get boring sometimes.” The muffled screams of Crowley’s victim were louder than ever now, but Crowley paid no mind, “I’ll see you soon, (y/n).”

You knew it wouldn’t take Crowley long all to get your milk, so you started to get the macaroni ready now, filling a pot up with water and setting it on the stove to boil. You got everything ready as you water boiled you dumped the macaroni in, before turning the temperature down. 

Every few minutes you would stir the contents of the pot around, so as to not get any noodles stuck to it, and it was while you were doing this that Crowley came home. You didn’t hear him enter, as he had teleported into your kitchen, rather than using the front door as a conventional person would. It was only when you felt hands on your waist that you knew- after getting slightly startled- that Crowley had came with your milk. 

“You’re just in time,” you told him, shutting off the burner, as Crowley places a kiss to your neck.

“Good,” he said, “You know,you look good in my sweater.” He placed another kiss to your neck, as his hands reached under the sweater. A low chuckle left his mouth, and vibrated against your neck when he realised you weren’t wearing any undergarments. “The best thing about wearing a sweater? You don’t have to wear anything underneath.

You turned around in Crolwey’s arms, his fingers razing against your skin as you did so. Your own hands reached up as your wrapped your arms loosely around Crowley’s neck. “That’s true, but it’s getting hot in here, I think I might have to take the sweater off,” you whispered into his ear. A smile spread across both of your faces and you made your way out of the kitchen together. When you came back the macaroni would be cold, and the milk warm.

  • the reveal of modsonamy and the banning of mod shadow: Betrayal and an attempt at Monarchy. The weakest link has learned it has been used and lied to and now that it is no longer needed, it is discarded by the high rulers.
  • the arrival of mod knuckles and mod sally: Communism. all have suddenly become equal under the unbiased eye of Knuckles the Usurper. mod sally is recruited to balance the levels of Paragon and Renegade and mod knuckles cracks her exterior with heated debates.
  • the banning of mod knuckles: Assassination. the rules are twisted once again and the keeper of the peace is lost to us. mod sally stays hidden and mod amy seems to have become overwhelmed with all the pain that has been caused for her and mod sonics quest for power.
  • mod super sonic: Dictatorship. There is only one true ruler now and all will answer to his demands. It is The Beginning of The End.

anonymous asked:

Do you think female Astartes have to happen, do we need them?

Short answer: Kinda but not really, we have a lot of amazing female characters 40k and Fantasy. The fact how people almost ignore all these female characters but then turn around and demand more female characters pisses me off. That, and while I would like to have some female Astartes, I also know they may be possible physiologically but not with how the Imperium functions currently. There are also other smaller problems that get in the way. It’d be nice, but I wouldn’t be sad if it never happens.

Long answer:

What are some gendernuetral terms for royalty?

Your highness, your majesty, the ruler, and person in power are the ones I can think of. If anyone knows more feel free to add them!

malachitenecklace replied to your post: Also starting to wonder if like Rose Quartzes…

really like this… In addition, maybe they were meant to be like other quartzes, but somehow… Turned out wrong? Not like one gem being “defective,” but the entirety of the rose quartz family? Just a thought, might be looking too deep into it lol

It’s very possible, tbh, my PERSONAL headcanon is that all of the earth gems? They’re ‘defective’. One way or another, they all wound up ‘flawed’ by Homeworld standards. I think something to do with Earth itself really messes with gemworld technology and creations. They don’t come out uniform, they don’t come out as intended, at a much higher rate than you would get from other planets. In this way, I believe that Jasper was the ultimate anomaly, because unlike almost all other gems, she came out not only as intended, but better. The reason she’s such a celebrity? She’s super special, not in the normal ‘deviation from the mold’ way, but in the ‘Good for you, you’re actually what we wanted, you fit the box we made for you perfectly’ way. (Unrelated, but god, the pressure of ‘You’re the only one to not completely botch it’ for your entire life? Hoo boy, no wonder she completely collapsed under one failure.) 

I mean. All those Jaspers back at the zoo? Who deviate from each other not just in little ways like where their gem is, but in massive ways, height, shape, weight, bulk, EVERYTHING, who are seen as a messy sort of disgrace by Holly Blue, I don’t think that’s normal. Based on the off-colors, that’s not usually tolerated. Earth, as a breeding ground for gems, is an absolute, 100% bust. 

AND, based on the latest episodes: I think that extended to Pink Diamond as well. 

Personally, I believe Pink Diamond is why we have no Russia. And I think Pink Diamond might have been swayed by Rose Quartz’s rebellion. I mean. She curated a zoo. Of humans and earth-life. For what reason other than she liked Earth enough to want to preserve a piece of it? 

Pink Diamond was killed, her murder covered up, because Pink Diamond, by virtue of being born on earth, was irreparably flawed, just like every member of the court that she made there. And if we assume White Diamond is the high ruler of all Gems, and White Diamond is the one that created and enforces the strict castes and hierarchies of Homeworld, then White Diamond simply can not afford for a diamond to be ‘off-color’, to be sympathetic to lifestyles outside the one she architected. 

I went way off on a tangent but I’m very excited about my own theory.
