anonymous asked:

Reading the drabble list you posted, so sad people are not requesting Pearlet the most :( the ones you've written are super fun to read! Pearlet is def the best ship out there;) Pearlet drabble: high school boys Jason & Matt cutting classes together and discovering they are gay while hanging out so much together. Thank you xx

Thank you darling! Currently not taking requests
I’m spoiling you guys today! (Don’t get used to me posting this much please 😂)Every time there is a page break it’s another time. I imagine this being set in Florida. Some mentions of abuse and self-harm.

Greener than green fields. Spring sun on their skin. Laughter. Long silences. Deep conversations. Two adolescents discovering things about each other, and about themselves. Those few months changed everything.

The blunt dangled loosely between Matt’s lips and the smoke slowly rised in to the still sky. Jason watched the side of his face as he inhaled and exhaled, the blunt never leaving his lips. He watched the way Matt’s cheekbones moved ever so slightly; the way his plump lips tightened and loosened on the end of it. He watched his eyelashes as he blinked.
‘I can feel you staring at me.’ Matt spoke around the blunt not looking at him. ‘What are you thinking about?’
What was he thinking about? Things he certainly shouldn’t be thinking about that was for sure.
‘Smoking kills.’ Jason told him, turning away from him and looking off into the distance. Matt took the blunt from his mouth and held it between his fingers.
'We’re all gonna die some day, might as well have fun while we’re alive.’

——————-

Cutting classes. Going places they shouldn’t. Soft breezes on sun kissed skin. Memories in the making. Memories that would last a lifetime.

The welcome breeze caressed the bare skin of his chest. He breathed in deeply, inhaling the sea salt. He exhaled just as deeply, a feeling of contentment filling his bones.
'Have I ever told you about my dad?’ Matt extinguished the blunt in the soft sand under him. Jason rolled over onto his stomach on the towel and raised his sunglasses on top of his head.
'No?’ He looked at the blonde curiously. Matt kept his sunglasses on, staring out to sea.
'He was abusive.’
'Oh.’ Jason didn’t know what to say to that. 'Where is now?’
'Prison.’ Matt picked up the pack of cigarettes from the sand and lit one. Jason stared at him but he knew Matt wasn’t looking at him even if he couldn’t see his eyes. Silence descended. Jason stared. Matt smoked.

——————-

Lazy afternoons. Ice cream by the lake. Longing stares. Secrets revealed. Stories shared. A bond growing.

'Can I ask you something?’ Matt eyed Jason up, making the brunette feel a little uncomfortable. Matt never looked at him like that. And for some reason, Jason already knew what he was going to say.
'My scars.’ He ran his fingers over the pale slivers on his inner thigh. Matt bit his lip.
'Yeah.’
'My parents suck.’ Jason sighed. 'My childhood sucked.’
'I know that feeling.’ Matt pulled a blunt from behind his ear and lit it. He handed it to Jason. Jason didn’t normally smoke but thinking about his childhood made him feel the need. He took it from Matt. 'It sucks when the people that are supposed to protect you, to love you unconditionally…when they just don’t.’
'Amen.’ Jason took a drag on the blunt. He coughed a little but he loved the way the weed felt as it made its way to his brain. The two boys looked at each other for a moment. Something was changing between them. Something was shifting in the dynamic of their friendship. Both of them knew what it was. Neither of them was ready to admit to it.

——————-

Rain clouds. Running for shelter. Stormy skies. Water droplets on skin. Feelings developing. Sexualities becoming realised.

They were both out of breath and soaked through when they reached the shelter at the side of the building. Matt leant against the wall panting a little, a soft chuckled leaving his lips.
'Holy shit.’ He laughed. 'The weather changed quick.’
'I told you there was a storm coming.’ Jason wiped his sopping wet hair out of his face.
'And I told you I didn’t care.’ Matt smirked at him and pulled his soggy cigarette packet from his pocket. He managed to get one lit and held it between wet fingers that seeped through it.
'We should have stayed at school.’
'Oh come on.’ Matt rolled his eyes. Jason turned to look at him. There was a bead of water rolling down the side of Matt’s face and a small droplet clinging for dear life on his hair. His clothes were sticking to his body, his vest top almost see through at this point. Jason felt that familiar pitter-patter in his heart he’d been getting a lot around Matt recently. Matt took a drag on the cigarette, Jason wasn’t even sure it was a light considering how wet it was but Matt dragged on it anyway. Matt’s blue eyes had a spark to them, something Jason couldn’t put his finger on. He had a small smile dancing in his lips.
'What?’ Jason folded his arms and acted as if he was annoyed at Matt staring at him.
'You really are something else, you know that?’ Matt raised an eyebrow at the brunette and sucked on the cigarette.
'What’s that supposed to mean?’ Jason pulled a face at Matt. Matt couldn’t help but laugh at Jason’s defensive nature. Jason wasn’t the only one that had been discovering these feelings. When Matt looked at Jason he felt as though he lit up. He had no idea when things had changed, when he stopped seeing Jason as his friend and started looking at him as something more but it had.
'Why are you so sure I meant it as a bad thing?’ Matt looked at him like he was challenging him. Jason swallowed.
'Didn’t you?’
'No.’ Matt took one last drag on the damp cigarette and flicked it out under the shelter into the down pour.
'What did you mean then?’ Jason unfolded his arms and let them drop to his sides. Matt smiled at him, his body somehow moving closer to Jason’s.
'I don’t know. There aren’t words for it.’ Matt shrugged.
'What the fuck does that mean? You know you’re really annoying when smoke too much weed and sometimes-’
Jason was silenced.

Wet bodies colliding. Lips binding. Pleasurable moans. The sound of raindrops on rooftops. At last.

Matt pulled back from the kiss and was still smiling at Jason. Jason, always on the defensive frowned at him.
'What did you do that for?’
'Why do you think I did it?’
'To mess with me?’
Matt’s smile faded a little and he cautiously cupped Jason’s face.
'Guess again.’
This time when their lips met Matt wrapped his arms around Jason tightly. Their wet bodies pressed together and Jason couldn’t help but wrap his arms around Matt too. It felt like all these months had led to this. The culmination of their time together. And it couldn’t have been better.

Limbs entwined. Actions driven by passion. The suns gives up another day. Relentless torrent. A faultless ending. The ultimate beginning. A perfect storm.

VIVIANE & KALLIAS 

“And in those last moments, when his power had been ripped from him by that spell… Kallias had flung out the remnants to warn her. To tell Viviane he loved her. And then he begged her to protect their people.

So she had.

The day he’d returned home, he’d winnowed right to her.

She’d kissed him before he could speak a word. He’d then knelt down and asked her to be his wife” 

A Court of Wings and Ruin, Sarah J. Maas

Yet another Shipping names illustrated (here’s part one & two) for those of you who just can’t get enough! (The rest of you will just have to manage, snorry). 

(Thanks again to everyone for all the suggestions, and I apologize to all the ships I haven’t been able to think up anything for. I also apologize to Thor, since he’s been in absolutely none of these OPS)

[My Hooked Wayfinder sequel to Moana] Cause you can’t always find happiness right where you are… Especially when the great demigod Maui has been avoiding you for years because he is terrified of watching you grow old. Cue angst. Cue adventure. Cue romance. Featuring… An ageless demigod manchild afraid of attachment… A heroin determined to give him a home… And an entire island filled with the ridiculously stupid offspring of Heihei.

He had expected her to think over his words and realize that it was the truth, but she did something he found far stranger. She wrapped her small arm around his big one and leaned with her head against his shoulder, looking out over the water as she kept him company.

“You are more than your selfishness and greed,” she offered gently. “You are also strength and compassion. You have more to offer this world than you believe right now, but you can’t let yourself believe that the world is better off without you. I don’t believe that for one second. You matter. If not to anyone else, then at least to me.”

He gulped, his hand still over his heart. He had an inkling of how hard mini Maui and mini Moana were hugging it out, but he wasn’t mini Maui. He wasn’t capable of telling her how much she meant to him precisely, of allowing himself to grow closer to her. He was already getting too close again.

“He’s my boyfriend.”

“We’re dating.”

^ These are the only answers I will give. To hell with those “More or less” and “…” choices. I ship these two so much. Just let me have this.


For real though, it really bugged me how the only available options in this encounter basically say Mishima isn’t even really your friend. Like, damn. After everything he’s done, that’s all I can say? Why won’t you let me be nice to Mishima?

So like if you’re a Pharmercy shipper who is grossed out by McHanzo (or any other m/m overwatch ship) or if you’re a McHanzo shipper who is grossed out by Pharmercy (or any f/f overwatch ship) and if you’re grossed out by anything remotely close to trans headcanons or nb headcanons for shipping and fandom

you are definitely 100% without a doubt a homophobic transphobic ass who only sees LGBT ppl as fetishes

anonymous asked:

Did you watch the p chris clip? What are your thoughts??

Okay, prepare for a huge rant you brought this on yourself btw (jk though, i love you for messaging me :))

First of all, when I saw that the new clip was about my smol bean Chris, I freaking did a double-take, like, my butt literally hit the ceiling and I couldn’t stop screaming like a crazy person thank God I live alone or I might have been institutionalized or something. I legit just dropped everything I was doing (like, you don’t understand, it was a whole procedure, not only did I stop eating, which, don’t even go there, but I even closed the window to shut out the noise and pulled the curtains so there wouldn’t be any glare on my screen). And I screamed my head off, basically.

Second of all, the first time I watched it I had to go back like every five seconds and re-watch every single movement and interaction between those two absolutely adorable dorks, all the while squealing my life out because awh mai gawd, they are sooooo precious :3 My sweet little boi Chris touching and gazing at Eva with all the care and love in the world and her waking up all sleepy, and both of them smiling and softly laughing at each other and awhhhwhw! I freaKING KNEW THAT THIS WAS WHAT THEIR RELATIONSHIP WAS LIKE! This was 99% what I had in mind, seriously. I was absolutely sure that Eva changed his outlook and that sooner or later he would want to be with her and only her, I am SO HAPPY RIGHT NOW, you don’t even know. Then that whole thing with Chris’s dream (subtle, Chris, really subtle) who basically asked Eva to be his girlfriend and she flat-out rejected him, and I was like evA DON’T BLOW HOLES IN MY SHIP!!! (ultimately I get where she’s coming from though, she’s still wary and doesn’t want to get hurt like she did with Jonas (not that it was his fault, they just weren’t meant to be), so she’s cautious and thinking that if Chris isn’t her boyfriend then she can’t get hurt, even if he cheats or something, because technically they’re not together). But this is Chris we’re talking about, ever met someone more determined? Yeah. So, I don’t think he’s gonna give up, I think he’s just going to pursue Eva and be all like whatever, we’re dating, and she’s gonna be like Chris, you’re not my boyfriend, and he’s gonna smirk like the cocky little shit he is and kiss her senseless and then after she thinks he’s given up he’s gonna say yeah, but, like, we’re dating, and in the end Eva’s going to be so frustrated she’s just gonna give up (but in the meantime Chris is gonna prove to her that he’s really not going to hurt her and that she can trust him, and in the end they’re gonna be so damn happy together). Eva just needs reassurance, she’s fearful because of the past (her own past, as well as Chris’s) and she needs time to see that Chris really loves her (because, I mean, come on, you can’t tell me that that boy is not totally whipped, like, my cute little puppy looked so hurt when Eva said that they’re never going to be together, it just broke my heart, but it’s okay, because we all know that’s not true). They just make each other so incredibly happy, the glow-up is amazing. On another note, what a great way to meet your future son-in-law, don’t you think? :D (you know it’s gonna happen, don’t even argue with me)

So, yeah, as you can probably tell, I have re-watched the clip at least 549 times, and I just can’t get enough of those two cinnamon rolls, and my whole life is literaLLY MADE Y'ALL. Like, this is what I have been waiting for ever since that first kiss at the Halloween party, I freaking KNEW MY SHIP WOULD SAIL :)))

Anyway, thank you so much for messaging me, anon, much love and fluffy ChrisEva hugs for you and I hope you have an amazing day ^^

Freaking Out

Requested by: @decaffeinated-student-cheesecake

Note: The requester wanted a drabble with promps  54, 97, and 103, and a ship as well. I figured to combine the two into a big one shot :)

Setting: Marauders Era AU where Voldemort didn’t cause a wizarding war.


“Y/N, you haven’t even touched your food. What’s going on?” Lily asked you.

You haven’t touched your breakfast. You picked your food with your fork but you don’t have the appetite. You both were sitting at the breakfast table you co-own in your shared apartment.

“Y/N?” Lily placed her fork down and turned to you. You looked at Lily, trying to look fine.

“I’m fine, Lily.” You gave her a smile.

“Y/n-“ You stood up from your chair and made your way to the door.

“I’m going to ahead to St. Mungos. They need me to be early. I’ll see you later.” You told her as you wrapped a scarf around you neck and put your jacket on.

Lily noticed you hurriedly left your shared apartment. After years of being friends in Hogwarts and now that you are roommates in your shared apartment, she knows if you are hiding something.


You hurriedly made you way to St. Mungos. It is true that they needed you to be early today but for a different reason. You made your way to your healer’s room for your check up. You turned the door knob to see your healer, Madam Rye.

“Miss L/N, just in time.” Madam Rye greeted her with a smile. You made your way to the hospital bed and sat there. You looked around the room, entertaining yourself as you wait for your healer to proceed. The room had white clean walls with one window, not quite inviting.

“This won’t take too long and I already talked to your supervisor healer if you end up being late for your rounds this morning.” She continued as she prepared a series of potions for your clinical tests.

You allowed Madam Rye to conduct your clinical tests.

“I’ll be right back with your results from today’s exams and from the other day in a few minutes.” She left and took your samples to the laboratory room.

You stared to the window and patiently waited for your results. Through the window, you see a cloudy and gloomy day in London in view, something you haven’t seen in a while. You had spent most of your days training to be a healer and tending to the sick here in St. Mungos with Lily Evans. You both decided to become healers right after Hogwarts and now here you are, three years later, avoiding your best friend. Your heart hammered in your chest. Palms sweated. Breath hitched. It’s as if you were back in Hogwarts waiting for your N.E.W.T.S results.

“I can’t take one more second of this.” You told yourself as you fidget on your seat.

The door opened behind you and as soon you turned you saw Madam Rye came in with your results. She walked back to her desk and sat in front of you.

“Miss L/N, I have your results.” She said.


Three weeks have passed since you heard your results. You fixed yourself up and checked yourself on the mirror. You opened your purse to grab your lipstick and retouched your soft lips with your favorite shade. You looked up to see yourself one last time and left the washroom. You just threw up your entire dinner. Just side effects of being pregnant. You get nauseated by smelling or eating your favorite foods but that’s the least of your problems. You made your way back to your table at the little restaurant you always go to with Sirius, your boyfriend. You see him passing paying the bill before you got back to the table. Sirius stood up from his seat and grabbed his jacket.

“Shall we go?” he asked and you nodded.

Sirius guided you with his hand behind your lower back as you both went out of your favorite restaurant. Sirius looked up and smelled the cold London air.

“Ahh.” He breathed out.

“It’s such a beautiful night.” He continued as he looked up the sky. He looked at you and see you starring down the pavement. He stopped you for a moment, lifted your chin up so that you could see his concerned grey eyes.

“Is everything alright, love?” he asked.

At this very moment, you wanted to lie to the man you loved and say everything is ok but you knew you should tell him sooner.

“I-I I have to tell you something.” You cupped his face.

“Please don’t freak out.” You looked into his eyes, hoping he wouldn’t freak out. You closed your eyes and took a deep breath.

“What is it, Love? You’re making me nervous.” He chuckled nervously. You opened your eyes.

“I’m pregnant.”

Sirius’s face went pale. He let go of you and slowly backed away.

“Sirius?”

“I-I” He said and left.

Your heart sank. Life drained out from your body. This was what you were afraid of.

You trudged your way into the apartment. On the corner of eye, you see Lily reading a book on an arm chair in a lamp lit room. Lily looked up from her book.

“How was dinner with Pads?” she asked. You leaned yourself to the door behind you, stared blankly at nothing.

“I’m pregnant, Lily.” You stated. Lily, with her mouth open, sat up from the arm chair and discarded her book to the side.

“I told him tonight.” You looked at your dear friend as tears fell from your tearful eyes. Lily got up and walked towards you. She held your arm trying to comfort you.

“He didn’t say anything. He just left.” You broke down on her shoulders and held her tightly as if you were afraid of her leaving as well.


You’ve calmed down, holding a cup of warm tea that Lily brewed on your hand. You stared at the steam floating away from the cup. Lily sat in front of you at the table, concerned about you.

“What’s the plan?” she asked softly.

“I don’t know.” You continued to watch the steam. Lily leaned back and shook her head, locking her jaw slightly.

“This isn’t fair.” She said. She looked at you. You looked at her.

“It. Is. Not. Fair.” She emphasized. “How can he just leave you alone like this?! How can he just treat you this way?!”

Lily held your hand and looked at you straight in the eye. “I can’t just let this slip away. I won’t let him treat you like this. If he’s going to treat you like shit I’m going to kick his ass!

Knock. Knock.

You both turned to the door when you heard knocking. Lily stood up and went to get the door. She opened the door, allowing Sirius to come in. Lily slammed the door shut when he came in. You stood from your chair and faced him.

“What are you doing here?” she said in a low voice. He turned to her.

“I need to talk to Y/N.” he said.

“Now you want to talk to her?”

“Lily, please stay out of this.” He pleaded.

Lily snapped.

You got her pregnant?! And what?! You left her! What were you thinking?!” she screamed at him.

“Lily, please.” You tried to calm her down.

“You can’t just treat Y/N like this! Oh Godrick-”

“I know.” Sirius cut her off.

“I know I was a bloody arse. I left her standing alone in the street. I know I left her without saying anything. I was a complete arse. I don’t deserve, Y/N.” He looked at you and walked towards you. He held your hands and looked deep into your eyes.

“Y/n, I’m sorry I did all those awful things. I’m sorry I panicked. I just don’t know what to do when you told me. I wish I could have reacted better. I love you, Y/N. I love you so much. I want to raise our baby together. I’m ready to step up and be the father of our child.”

“Oh Sirius.” You embraced each other and he kissed your forehead.

“I love you both so much. I don’t want to lose you two ever again.”

anonymous asked:

I'm so glad Kirishima is getting so much spotlight, he really deserves it!!!! And it looks like hes gonna get more, since hes in the main group along with Deku, Uraraka and Tsuyu. I;m so hyped!!!

Honestly!!!!!!!!!!! That’s one interesting group tbh, Kirishima and Tsuyu’s interactions are always incredibly adorable to watch and seeing Kirishima interact for so long with pure and good people is gonna be hard on my heart (I mean, you know I’m 100% a bakusquad fan but they’re all at least in part assholes and Kiri fits with them just right, he can be just like Sero and Kaminari and I love it, but then his interactions with Amajiki have been so pure can you imagine an arc filled with that I’m already crying)

I just hope my other faves won’t completely disappear through this arc haha sigh

Rumours About Rumours, or: The Kent Parson Meta That Nobody Asked For

As is well-documented by this point, I’m a hopeless fan of @omgcheckplease, to the point where a gay hockey comic has turned me into an actual fan of ice hockey, dear god, I’ve become invested in a sport that’s barely even fucking played in my country, what is this even?? Naturally, this means I follow a few CP-heavy blogs on tumblr, and recently I’ve noticed a few people expressing confusion about why so many people like Kent Parson, given the fact that, canonically, his big introduction involves him being goddamn awful to Jack.

Now: straight off the bat – and I’m saying this, obviously, as someone who finds Kent Parson a fascinating character – I want to acknowledge that fandom, as a general entity, is heavily biased towards white guys. It’s one of those raindrop-in-a-storm problems where, at an individual level, everyone is entitled to their own personal preferences (always bearing in mind that said preferences can be influenced, either consciously or unconsciously, by cultural bias), but where the cumulative, collective effect of those choices amplifies the effects of cultural bias. It would therefore be disingenuous to deny that, whatever my thoughts on or interest in Kent as a character, there’s still a collective issue with how much more attention he often receives than more canonically prominent – and non-assholish – POC characters like Ransom, Chowder, Nursey and Lardo.

(Sidenote: as part of various race-oriented meta about CP, I’ve seen it pointed out that, in fanworks, the POC characters are most often romantically paired with white characters rather than other POC, and that this is a worthy point of investigation and criticism. I agree on both counts, but also feel that, in this specific instance, it’s important to note that, in canon, all the POC characters are primarily – either romantically or platonically – paired with another white character, and that these pairings dominate their appearances in the strip. (Ransom and Holster, Chowder and Farmer (or Chowder and Bitty, platonically), Nursey and Dex, Lardo and Shitty.) So while that doesn’t excuse the comparative lack of creative licence taken in moving beyond those pairings, as is common fanwriting practice, it does explain their existence as a non-trivial narrative baseline. ANYWAY.)

As to why Kent himself is interesting - well. There are, I think, two main reasons for this:

1: He’s Jack’s most significant ex; and

2: He’s presented as an antagonist.

If only the latter point was true, then I’d be much less inclined to invest in him emotionally. What matters is the fact that, despite all the wonderful shipping opportunities afforded by CP, Kent is one of only three (thus far) canonically queer characters – and not only that, he has an existing, complicated backstory with Jack, which therefore connects him emotionally to both Jack and Bitty. Any canon-compliant take on Jack’s romantic history must therefore feature Kent, and with that particular speculative door cracked open, it’s natural to wonder about Kent’s version of events.

Which is where my personal interest in Kent comes in. Because Jack Zimmermann, despite being our noble hockey hero and the protagonist’s love interest, is, by his own admission, an unreliable narrator of his own emotions. And as Jack’s narration is the only insight we get into his and Kent’s relationships, it’s not unreasonable to wonder what we’re missing out on – to say nothing of the possibility that Jack, historically, might not have been great for Kent.

Are you sitting comfortably? Then we’ll begin.

What things could be fixed in Steven Universe to make me want to watch it anymore? (My opinion)

1. Stop demonizing characters who did nothing awful and stop making us symphaze characters who fucked up really bad (and didn’t even apologize for it) - The show tends to put characters like Amethyst, Sugilite, and other characters in a bad spotlight a lot. While Peridot, the Diamonds, Lapis, and fucking Pearl can get away the horrible shit they’ve done. Amethyst, Sugilite, Bismuth, and other characters get shit and put in a negative spotlight for doing something not as bad. Sugilite got put a negative spotlight because she took out her anger on Pearl, and wanted to stay together because she didn’t want to be alone anymore. Amethyst always get shit and gets in trouble for basically fucking being herself. 

2. LESS PEARL EPISODES - Stop giving Pearl so many episodes of her sob story. They spent two seasons covering her arc. Stop. I admit it’s toned down, but still. Give Pearl less spotlight. Give Bismuth spotlight. Give Garnet spotlight. Give Amethyst spotlight. Give Jasper spotlight. NOT FUCKING PEARL.

3. Stop shoving Lapis and Peridot off to the barn - So an issue since the beginning of Season 3 for me was Peridot and Lapis being shoved off to the barn. And that barn RUINED Lapis’ character for me. She feels bland now. And they keep going back and forth on her personality. If they could give Lapis more screen time, continue her arc, and portray her character like they did in Room for Ruby, then I’ll be happy.

4. Make Pearl’s character more likable - I don’t like Pearl. If you follow my blog, it’s obvious then I don’t like her. The reason why is because of the shit she has done ; bullied Amethyst and Greg, obsessed over Rose unhealthily, manipulate and lie to Garnet, made a child protect Steven (Rose) and not caring if she killed herself, almost killed Steven twice. And I don’t think she felt sorry about any of it. She’s hurt her family so many times. While it has gotten better recently, I still don’t like her. I can never forgive her the awful stuff she’s done. If they can make her character less cringe, then I might like her a little.

5. Contuine the Amethyst and Peridot romance - Yes, I ship Ame*dot. And I do think Amethyst and Peridot like each other a lot romantically. It was fairly obvious. Every time they interact, there is a hint in there that they like each other. And recently, they’ve just put the ship aside for Lapi*dot… Like stop.. Stop forcing two characters into a relationship when one of those characters liked another character in a romantic way. Amethyst and Peridot’s relationship has so much potential. So give Amethyst and Peridot’s relationship more screen time and give them more episodes.

6. Fix the fucking art style - Something that bothers me deeply about the show is that the art style has gotten lazy. It isn’t them expressing themselves. It may be a little, but it’s just them getting lazy. The only two who try anymore is Zuke and Hillary. In Season 1 and 2, we couldn’t tell who was story boarding the episode, and that was a good thing. So please just go back to Season 1 and 2′s art style and stop being lazy. 

7. Stop making the color palette lighter and neon hell - SU stans be like ; It’s always been this palette. Then explain the fuck this ; 

All I’m going to say is, go back to the original palette. The color palette are now neon hell for me and they’re honestly fucking burning my eyes.’

8. Stop making episodes boring - So recent episodes like Rocknaldo, Lion 4, The Zoo, and Tiger Philanthropist feel bland and boring. Those episodes (except for the Zoo) had so much potential. Stop title-baiting us and making episodes interesting.

9. Give Amethyst, Bismuth, Jasper, and Garnet screen time/plots - Another big issue I have is that they don’t reeally focus on those characters anymore. They shove big plot lines and big characters off to the side for a really long time, and I don’t like it. Give them more screen time and stop shoving things off to the side.

Well those are my 9 main ideas on what could fix Steven Universe for me. Also, feel free to reblog and add on.
