I’ll be reblogging from the #gemsona week tag all of August, so no rush. Please have lots of fun this year!

Tuesday, July 25th ★ Design Showcase

  • #GemsonaTimeskip : Based on the timeskip art meme. Have you redesigned your gemsona over the years, or do you have alternate “poofed” outfits for your gem? Celebrate our fourth annual gemweek with a look into the past!
  • Famethyst : Even gems of the same type vary in size, color and personality. Draw your gemsona meeting their diverse family with all of their glorious variations!
  • Name Drop : Design a gemsona based on a gem mentioned but not shown in the show: Crazy Lace, Biggs, Snowflake, Nephrite, Morganite, and the Cluster.
    Homeworld Gem - Your Diamond is pleased with your work ethic and competence, and has seen fit to reward you with your very own Pearl. Your Pearl is already outfitted to match you and is ready for instruction…
    Crystal Gem Rebel - You’ve been assigned team leader on a mission to recover corrupted gems from the Beta Kindergarten. Will you rise to the occasion, or crack under pressure…?
Wednesday, July 26th★ Gemsona Memes
  • Gemsona Drawing Challenge : A good old-fashioned interview art meme. Save these templates to your computer, draw your gemsona’s responses and post it in the #gemsona week and #GWmeme tags! [ ATTN:Templates will go live 7/24 ]
  • Mother of Memes : Redraw memes featuring gemsonas! Regular memes, draw-your-oc/draw-the-squad poses, any meme you so desire. Be sure to tag it #GWmeme!
    Homeworld Gem - A day in the life of your gemsona carrying out their duties.
    Crystal Gem Rebel -Whoops, you seem to have wandered into what the humans call a “house show party”… what do you make of all this?!
Thursday, July 27th ✦ DAY OF DIAMONDS 2.0 ✦
  • Your Elusive Radiance : Design a Diamond that hasn’t fully appeared in the show. (Pink, White, or any other color Diamond.)
  • Fusion Authority : Uh oh… don’t look now, but the Diamonds have fused into a terrifying giantess!! (Design the fusion or write a quick fic about your gemsona stumbling into this scenario.)
    Homeworld Gem - (Pre-Rebellion) I’m sorry to be the one to tell you this, but… you’ve been re-assigned to Pink Diamond’s Earth colony! How will you serve your new Diamond, and how do you feel about going to such an… organic planet?
    Crystal Gem Rebel - You’ve been shattered during the Gem War and have become part of the Cluster… you’re confused, scattered and your body is desperately trying to reform. Suddenly, a boy’s voice breaches your consciousness: ”Shard, meet shard!”
Friday, July 28th ★ Fusion Friday
  • Art Fusion! Switch-Around Challenge : Some of you might recognize this art meme! Make groups of 2-3 people, and fuse your art using one of these templates! One person sketches their gemsona, another adds lines, and the last colors. Rinse and repeat until everyone has sketched, lined and colored! Be sure to post in the #GWmeme tag! [ ATTN:Templates will go live 7/24 ]
  • Corrupted Fusion : Oh no, your gemsona had to fuse with a corrupted gem! (Draw the design or write a quick fic about the outcome.)
  • Fusion Room: So long as the fusion exists, their room appears in the temple. Pick a fusion from the past or make a new one- for what purpose do they use their room? What do they decorate it with that reflects their combined personality?
    Homeworld Gem -You’ve been given authorization to fuse with other gems of your type. Is it true that fusion is a pathway to sentimentality?
    Crystal Gem Rebel - You must fuse to protect innocent humans, but you and your partner have hit a roadblock of anxieties. How do you work through it together to save the day?
Saturday, July 29th ★ Gemsona Community Day
  • Ask My Gem Anything : Ask prompt meme for artists and writers to reblog. Send a question to at least five people & reblog to share! [ ATTN- WILL BE POSTED ON FRIDAY 7/28 ]
  • Enhance! : Your gem is offered a chance to enhance or upgrade their tech/weapons! Either by Homeworld engineers or Crystal Gem weapon smiths- what does your gem opt for?
  • The New Gem: What’s going on?!… Your gemsona has switched bodies with another gemsona for a day! (Find a partner and draw and/or write about your gemsona’s reaction to their new appearance and abilities. Or switch your own gemsonas with each other if you’d prefer to go solo!)
    The Corrupting Light - Your gem is caught up in the Gem War for Earth… suddenly a bright light of corruption washes over them and proceeds to break down their consciousness, altering their bodies…
Sunday, July 30th ★ AU/Crossover Day

  • Ultimate Alternate : Choose your favorite genre of AU and insert your gemsona(s)!
  • OC Crossover : Pick a non-gemsona OC of yours and introduce them to your gemsona. Do they get along at all? (Draw and/or write about the meeting of the minds!)

    Homeworld Gem - You’ve been captured as a hostage by the Crystal Gem Rebels! They question you about Homeworld, and start to ask questions you’ve never heard or thought about before…
    Crystal Gem Rebel - You’ve befriended a local human and they’ve become curious about why you revolted against the Diamond Authority… Why did you decide to defend Earth, despite all the risks of rebellion?

Congrats! Headcanon on aos bones and his fondness of the ease of access the skirted uniform provides! 😉

Thank you!

Oh my god, my mind went to the dirtiest of places and the imagery was so fucking vivid.

  • Leonard McCoy thinks the Starfleet uniforms are ridiculous. They are essentially designed so that you need hypermobility in your joints in order to zip them up, and he’s not a real fan of high waisted pants - for whatever reason, he’s always found high waisted pants are the kind that get uncomfortably close to your testicles, and he likes the boys to have a little more freedom.
  • Do not get him started on the idiot medical uniforms. The pullover pointy pinafore from hell pisses him off no end. Chapel has had to help pull him out of the goddamn thing at least three times in the last two weeks and he doesn’t think they’re any more sanitary than the regular uniform.
  • The most of his ire is reserved for the level of stupidity that was present when the women’s uniforms were designed. They are so goddamn short that his staff can’t even squat without showing off what god gave her. When he finally follows the chain of distribution back to the uniform designer to make his complaints, the response is to send a box of ‘underwear covers’ that are essentially a second pair of knickers in division colours for the ladies to wear under their dresses, like that somehow will help.
  • He writes a strongly worded memo to Starfleet Medical HQ about the impracticality of the goddamn uniforms, and the Enterprise nurses are the first to pilot a pants uniform while on duty in MedBay.
  • Leonard loves the pants uniforms while his staff is on-duty. Everyone looks the same, and comfortable. If he could just get rid of the pullover pointy fucking pinafore, he’d have everything he wanted in the world.
  • The uniform change does point something out to him though. He’d become completely desensitized to how fucking sexy the dresses were. He becomes so used to seeing his staff all in pants that when he ventures out of MedBay and into a sea of crewmen in their dresses, he’s distracted by how short they are.
  • He alternates wondering how he ever worked with that much delicious thigh on display all the time. He doesn’t remember having to work with a permanent semi, but maybe that’s why he hates the high waisted pants so much? Because he was constantly and perpetually aroused?
  • It’s not until a night after too much bourbon in the officer’s lounge that he realizes what a real treasure the dress uniform is. As you moan against his shoulder, he’s able to flip the skirt and pull down your knickers in a split second before driving home into you. It’s the most arousing and public thing he’s ever done.
  • You spend the next few months teasing him about his public sex kink, and ‘accidentally’ losing your ‘panty covers’ where he can find them, just so you can christen another area of the ship.

You ever look at clothes and think ‘I like that a lot but it’s not something I’d personally wear’?
Maybe that’s how alternate versions of yourself in other dimensions dress

((This boy is either Simmons’ little brother, or (more likely) the Grimmons child. Just look at how he’s dressed.

Alternative theory: he is Simmons’ little brother, but Simmons adopted him because, honestly, fuck his dad, no kiddo should have to live in that family like Simmons did.


“I feel just as sexy in a bralette and shorts as I do in my father’s tee shirt and sneakers,” she says. “I dress how I write—comfortably, honestly, and provocatively. There’s a serious 90s element in my attire and it’s definitely attributed to the same thing that effects my music: my parents. I was raised with a black dad and a white mom in the 1990s. There’s something Alanis Morissette/Nirvana meets TLC/Fresh Prince about how I dress, and there’s something sonically hip hop meets alternative meets ‘God Only Knows’ about my music.”(x)

Watch the Tide Rise: Dress

These are just quick glimpses into Liza and Harry’s life post-Sink. Feedback is lovely! <3

Just Anchor and Hope & When We Sink, We Float


When Penny walked out of the dressing room, I burst into tears. 

If anything, I was more surprised that I lasted this long without crying. Because, no, it wasn’t the price tags, or the necklines, or the fact that I couldn’t get the first one over my hips. I was crying because my sister looked better in a wedding dress than I did.

anonymous asked:

How old were you when you first started dressing more goth/alternative?

Honestly it was late in my teens as I went to an extremely strict school that forbade hair dye, jewellery, makeup, or lewd or questionable behaviour in public. I wish I had been able to express myself earlier on but tra la la.
