I don't think the Diamonds should have been revealed

Let me explain. I don’t think that Yellow and Blue Diamond should have been fully revealed when they did. What they look like anyway.

After they were, I feel like they lost their intimidation factor as villains and dictators as they became (slightly) more common occurrences in the show. They sort of became really strange equals on screen with regular gems?

I’m not really sure how to explain my thoughts on that part though. It’s almost as if it’s harder to see them as the powerful gems they are supposed to be now. Especially when they were made out to have grieving emotions so early in their appearances. Like, if we saw how brutal they can be on screen a bit more beforehand (their colonies, their gem subjects and how they are treated, maybe even the dwindling civilizations as they colonize other planets) and then the sympathizing sides to them afterwards, I think it would have made more of an impact for me personally. Just as a kind of surprise that the Diamonds can have emotions over anyone.

What I also would have LOVED to see is the Diamonds kept in shadow up to this point. Rather than seeing their complete designs we would basically see silhouettes. Kind of like how Blue Diamond was shown in “The Answer” but with more darkened shadows.

They can occur more often in the show but there would still be a sense of mystery there and a real sense of fear in their subjects (and the audience I think). You can show silhouettes of Blue, Yellow and even White Diamond at this point. You can have their voices, and songs, and Pearls, but you wouldn’t know exactly what they looked like. I think SU could also have used more angular oriented camera shots to really drive home the Diamonds’ size and respectively, their (seemingly) unquestionable authority. I think a great example of this is the last shot of Yellow Diamond while singing “What’s the Use of Feeling Blue” and her size in comparison to the Pearls. But I think a few more perspective shots could help a lot.

Instead what I notice is that we just see a lot of shots that are zoomed out to show the scale of the Diamonds in comparison with their subjects. And sure they are bigger, but those shots could be a lot better. Although it’s somewhat of a small change, using perspective shots instead of zoomed out ones, along with keeping the Diamonds in silhouette and shadows, would be a very great help in giving a sense of power. That they are of great authority and can strike fear into anyone that dares cross them. That they truly are dictators and not averse to war, destruction and even sacrificing loyal gems for their goals. Combined with good writing, camera angles and lighting can show a lot, without giving too much away or explicitly saying anything.

Then when it’s finally time to really face the Diamonds head on, they can be revealed near the end of the show or when a huge arc involving the Crystal Gems fighting Homeworld happens.

dammit papyrus, sans is trying to be all Bad Time™ over here and you’re throwing off his groove

Okay this has a lot of backstory, bear with me: Handplates is an AU by @zarla-s where Sans and Papyrus were experiments created by Doctor Gaster and lots of suffering ensues. Momplates is an AU of that AU where Sans and Papyrus escape and live with Toriel in the Ruins. This is an expansion on that idea, taking place years after the two have escaped, during the events of Undertale. Sans and Papyrus decide to leave the Ruins and accompany the human on their journey across the Underground, ostensibly to protect the child, and wacky shenanigans ensue. It gets a lot less wacky when Gaster, who in this timeline never fell into the CORE, realizes his extremely illegal experiments are running around the Underground and people are definitely going to take note of these two weird skeletons accompanying the human and eventually connect them to him, especially since they have his initials emblazoned on their hands oh my god, why did he think that was a good idea ahhhhhh

But anyway this comic was mostly an excuse to draw some of these characters and get an idea of what they look like in my style. And also make a dumb joke. A scene where a pair of brothers who experienced horrifying trauma as children finally confront their abuser, PERFECT time to make a dumb joke!!

Gaster here is based on zarla’s designs (minus the Lost Soul head obviously) but I took some artistic liberties cause I was like “I drew both Sans and Papyrus with a cute tooth gap wouldn’t that mean Gaster has one too” so boom, cute tooth gaps for everyone, apparently that’s a Gaster “family” trait now. It takes away from his menace a bit but I think that train left the station when I realized he has to tape his damn glasses to his head to keep them on. At least he’s doing the spooky glowing anime glasses thing, that’s intimidating! 

I like the idea that Papyrus carries the human everywhere and really dotes on them, trying to be the best mom he can be, just like Toriel ;_; it’s gonna be really sad if the kid ends up killing him

Anyone else find it amusing/ironic that at the beginning of Ryuko's fight with Inumuta, Senketsu makes a remark about being made nervous as if HE is the one being stripped naked (instead of Ryuko XD)? It seems ironic for him to be nervous about that, don't you think? (It is an offhand remark to be sure, but still.)

I find this line actually really fascinating.

The purpose of Ryuko and Senketsu’s exchange right before the fight seems to be that Houka is someone who battles more through wit and analysis than brute strength. Ryuko doesn’t seem to find his uniform all that impressive, but Senketsu notes that even if it doesn’t look powerful in itself, it’s still intimidating because of its capabilities—it’s almost like they’re being taken out from the inside with the way Houka is examining them.

From what I can tell, the Japanese dialogue isn’t especially clear if Senketsu is referring to just himself when he makes the “stripped naked” comment or both him and Ryuko; the official subtitles use “I,” but the English dub has him say instead, “It feels like he’s stripping us down.” Either way, though, it’s pretty funny not only because of the obvious, “Well, how do you think Ryuko feels when she wears you, huh?,” but also because the underlying meaning here: Senketsu is basically getting a taste of his own medicine. He’s constantly analyzing and examining Ryuko. How does it feel to be on the other end of that sort of behavior? He doesn’t like it!

Also to consider is the title of this episode—“I Want to Know More About You”—and what’s included in Senketsu’s preview for it:

To be skilled at research is to be skilled at love. Research the opponent, and input all data! To be skilled at analysis is to be skilled at love. Read what the opponent’s thinking and expect what’ll happen next. There’s a thin line between it and stalking. No, it’s not true. Love and war are similar things!

What this means to me? Senketsu seems to see his analyzing and examining of Ryuko as loving. And isn’t it? He’s certainly looking out for her wellbeing when he does it. But then he reaches a realization: Actually… maybe this is kinda creepy. (Like stalking.) I’ve written many times of Senketsu doing less of the deadpan Ryuko-analyzing as the series progresses, but perhaps a part of that is because he comes to understand that it’s super uncomfortable to be subjected to that sort of thing after his and Ryuko’s battle with Houka. After all, moving on from here, Senketsu takes Ryuko’s feelings far more into consideration, and actually expresses his own.

This isn’t really explored too thoroughly in the show itself, but it’s fun to think about…

How does one ask a girl out? There's this girl that I like but I'm having trouble thinking of how to approach her and ask her out cause honestly I don't even think she knows I exist… could you please give me some pointers? I've never really asked a girl out before haha

Well you should probably talk to her first like say hey and introduce yourself haha don’t be too scared cause a lot of times people look intimidating but who doesn’t want more friends??? Anyone would appreciate someone talking to them and wanting to get to know them

Sorry if you're the wrong person to ask, but I've always wondered: why does daredevil have those little horns on his cowl? I mean, his powers aren't actually demonic in origin (despite his alias), I don't think he's ever used them to, like, head-butt someone (I could be wrong, tho), and they look more cute than intimidating, really. It just seems like they'd be an inconvenience to fabricate when making a mask/outfit, without actually providing a tangible benefit. -thx, big fan.

they ARE cute.  he uses them to distract the enemy.  they get lost in how cute they are and when they gets close enough to touch them…
