The Stevenbomb - what happens next...

Warning: Spoilers!

So, now that we’ve experienced the thoroughly explosive new Stevenbomb, there’s a burning question that we all want the answer to:

What happens next?!

Steven’s now willing en-route to Homeworld in order to keep his friends safe from harm, the Crystal Gems powerless to stop this heartbreaking scenario from playing out right in front of their eyes.

They’ll need a plan, and fast.  But the glaring issue here is that their only space craft has been stolen reunited with its rightful owner again.  The upshot of this, of course, is that the Crystal Gems now have no way of reaching space.

Or, do they…?

Upon being freed from the mirror – and subsequently healed – by Steven, Lapis couldn’t get off the Earth fast enough.  In a relatively short amount of time, she was able to fly herself all the way back to Homeworld without the aid of a vehicle.

We know that, Peridot aside, Steven is the one person who Lapis cares for the most.  She’s already effectively sacrificed herself to save him in the past (this being her logic, no matter how questionable it might have been, when forming Malachite in order to stop Jasper from hurting Steven) – so she’s going to jump at the chance to save him again.

I daresay that the Crystal Gems will be well aware of this and will want/need to enlist her help, along with Peridot’s.  Peridot is, of course, the most “modern” Gem of the group and is the only one with prior experience of the current-day Homeworld.

However, another issue could arise here because (in a manner of speaking) Aquamarine and Topaz were sent to Earth because of Peridot.  If she hadn’t filed that report all the way back in Marble Madness, things might have played out very differently indeed.

I’ve theorised in the past that Peridot is internalising a lot of the guilt that she undoubtedly feels for her past actions (trying to kill Steven, the fusion experiments, almost leaving the Earth to be torn apart by the Cluster, etc) and that, eventually, something would cause all of this guilt to come spilling out.  I have to wonder if she’s going to blame herself for Steven’s capture and that, ultimately, this is going to be the thing that tips her guilt over the edge.

Peridot has recently been showing an awful lot of compassion to one individual in particular, continually putting this individual’s happiness and comfort first…

Lapis Lazuli.

Could it now be Lapis’ turn to be there for Peridot, just as Peridot has been for her?

When Lapis and Peridot find out what happened to Steven, there’s going to be a lot of upset from everyone.  Sometimes upset can turn to anger, and blame might start being attributed all around.  Perhaps the Crystal Gems themselves will begin blaming Peridot for what happened.

I can’t stop thinking about Peridot feeling guilty and getting very upset about the whole thing, prompting Lapis to say “It’s not your fault, Peridot…” before glaring at the Crystal Gems and adding something like “You’re not the one who let them take him!”

I feel like Lapis might be harbouring some resentment for the Crystal Gems and that she’s going to see Steven’s capture as being another reason not to trust them.  As I mentioned earlier, Lapis considers that she actually sacrificed herself to save Steven – so this line of logic could lead her to thinking that the Crystal Gems could have done more to prevent him from being taken.

Is it fair to apportion blame like this?  No – but that’s what can happen when something this distressing and heartbreaking happens.

Regardless of whether or not the “blame game” comes to fruition, everyone will have to calm down from their upset eventually and figure out what to do.  They’ll have to set aside any differences/disagreements that they may have and come together in order to rescue the one person who ultimately binds them all together – Steven.

And this is where things could get very interesting indeed.

Lapis can travel through space, but it’s unlikely that she would have the physical strength to carry multiple Gems with her. However…what if she’s not just Lapis at this point?

I think a fusion between Lapis, Peridot and the Crystal Gems (effectively creating another Alexandrite-esque Gem) is highly unlikely, for a number of reasons.

Alexandrite is an incredibly powerful Gem – and so was Malachite, Lapis’ only other fusion to date.  If one were to combine these forces, the resulting Gem would be unstoppable.  This would be ideal, of course; but, from a storytelling point of view, it offers a solution that’s too simple.  A “get out of jail free” card, if you like.

There’s also the aforementioned issue of Lapis perhaps not fully trusting the other Crystal Gems yet, as well as a huge question mark hanging over the stability of a fusion involving six Gems.  Lapis has also been left traumatised by her experience as Malachite, so I feel like she’d only fuse again with someone who she was very close to – with a dire emergency like this one being the catalyst to get her to try fusing with someone again out of pure necessity.

Luckily, there is someone who Lapis fully trusts, who she spends almost all her time alongside, and who she’s living a very harmonious relationship with…

Originally posted by barzeronipizza

…and so this might be where we finally see our Lapidot fusion!

To me, it makes absolute perfect sense.  Lapis can fly through space at an alarming rate, Peridot knows all about modern Homeworld – and, if necessary, their fusion might actually be able to carry the other Crystal Gems along with them!

Imagine a scene where Steven is in a room on Homeworld (or, alternatively, still on-board Aquamarine and Topaz’s ship).  Suddenly, a new Gem – the Lapidot fusion – comes bursting through the door, the Crystal Gems in her arms/clinging onto her back.  That would be an amazing scenario.

Of course, the nature of the show is such that we see everything from Steven’s perspective.  I wonder if the show will break this convention soon in order to show what’s happening on Earth ahead of Steven’s inevitable rescue.  We obviously know he’s going to get rescued somehow, but the tension and build-up would be somewhat watered-down if we see the Crystal Gems’ plan play out in the form of a The New Crystal Gems style flashback episode.  That’s still a distinct possibility, of course, but I must admit that it’d be nice to see the show’s formula get slightly shaken up in the next episodes.

The INTP Struggle

I think the realest of the INTP stereotypes is the one about our lack of motivation. Or procrastination. Or whatever you choose to call it. Seriously, why is it that I constantly have all these magnificent ideas dashing through my brain, but I can’t ever buckle down and actually complete a project?

Completion is never easy for me. I have to fight every step of the way, and it’s a bit depressing to look down and see all the abandoned projects all around me.

And then, even when other people might think that a thing is done, I’m never totally satisfied with it. I might even treat it like it’s finished, but, in my head, I could probably always think of something else to tweak. 

This is probably why I’m so okay with not finishing things. If nothing ever really seems finished to me, then why should I bother pretending that it is?

Not that this is a great life philosophy or anything. But I think it’s the way a lot of INTPs naturally look at projects.

Some frames from this human Bad Pearl and school girl-Rose animatic I’ve been working on. Featuring a certain song from a certain musical. Can any of you tell which song it is? ;3 If you can, you might be thinking why in the hell I’m putting Pearl and Rose in to this set up but to you I say: yandere pearl is a lot of fun, okay? 

Btw it will take forever before this gets done because I’m working on several art thingies at once right now Edit: actually I think this might get finished pretty soon since I got a sudden motivation to finish this. I’ll make a post with a final video when it’s done. Edit 2: The video is done and uploaded. You can find it on YouTube or my blog.

…I wonder if that was actually a good decision to make there, Kuroo

First | Prev | Next

I was thinking about all those “humans are weird” posts going around and one idea I had (which has probably been done before but whatever) is that I wonder what aliens would think about humans’ tendency to try to rescue dangerous animals.
Like, I’ve seen so many videos of people carefully maneuvering themselves to not get mauled by some giant wolf or something they’re trying to free from a trap, and it made me think how BEWILDERING that might be for an alien and what POSSIBLE conclusion they would come to about our survival instincts if we make a habit of putting life and limb on the line to rescue apex predators that often are Actually trying to kill us WHILE we’re helping them

Back from Bronycon, back to the Belle. I’m actually totally stoked on this one, think I nailed the volumes. I might start experimenting with some new color stuff soon too, gettin tired of my usual process. Got a fresh collab swoot coming up, might try to mix that one up a bit.

Also for those that don’t know, the KC hat stands for Kansas City, which is my hometown. I wear that hat to conventions so some of you likely recognize it now haha

While most the big conventions I’m attending are done until next summer, this Sweetie will be a sticker available at Canterlot KC

First off, you are very welcome for the last ask I did and I am glad that I didn't mess anything up. Also, I (finally) got an idea that almost certainly has already been done but I'm to lazy to try and find. Keith or Lance accidentally texting the other with one of the pining texts and the other playing along.

i actually don’t really have a text like this!! the only one i can think of is this one! but it’s old and i was hype to make this so i hope you like it! :)

Let’s talk about the evolution of Percy Jackson throughout the PJO series

He starts off as a confused, lost, awkward 12 year old who had been to a completely different school each year and never felt like he fit in. He’s witty, angsty, sarcastic, and bitter. His looks are average, he has a lack of self-esteem, and doesn’t seem to care about much. He lives with an abusive step-father, and him and his mom have barely anything to get on.

Slowly, as he learns he’s a demigod, he begins to realize that Camp Half-Blood, the place he discovers, might just be his home. He starts to go on quests and actually succeeds, which is something he had never thought he could do. Percy tries to save the world because he finally feels like there’s a purpose to his life. He had felt angry and betrayed by his father, but now acknowledges what Poseidon has done for him, and actually respects him.

Then comes Thalia Grace, who begins to make him question his confidence. He starts to think: Am I really that great? Couldn’t anybody do my quests just as I did? She makes him doubt himself, because deep down he secretly wants to be the boy from the prophecy. He finally feels like there is a reason for him to work hard in life. But Thalia makes him feel threatened, hence the ever-important fight between them.

By the end, they reconcile and learn from each other’s mistakes, which in turn strengthens Percy’s confidence. As the prophecy nears, Percy fights and trains more than he had ever before, and now is seen as a leader. Someone the demigods can count on. Someone they look up to. He takes a risk by jumping into the River Styx, but he does it for his camp, his friends, his f a m i l y. Never would past Percy do something like this. But this Percy does, because he legitimately cares. Later, he storms through rows of monsters, slashes through countless enemies, and hurries from one group of campers to another in order to save his city.

Think about what he had said in the Last Olympian: “‘What did they do?’ My voice sounded tight and angry. ‘What did they do to my city?’”. His city. The city he’s been living in his whole life, the one that he never really thought much about in the past. But now, it’s his city. And right then and there we can tell that he will do anything to protect those who call it their home.

Percy Jackson learns to become a role model for the demigods who are scared out of their minds, because to them, Kronos is a nightmare. They don’t have self-hope, they have no idea what will happen to them. But Percy gives them that hope. He inspires them to fight as hard and strong as they possibly can in order to save their camp. He treats them as strong warriors, and he believes in them. More importantly, he believes in himself.

When confronted by Kronos in the Battle of the Labyrinth, he had had no confidence at all. In fact, he ran. He ran. But in the Last Olympian, there was no running. The only thing he would do is walk straight forward. Because he was tired of countless enemies tormenting him and his friends. He was exhausted, and wanted to put a stop to it. It was difficult seeing Luke, someone he had thought of as a friend, standing in front of him as his greatest enemy. And in that moment, he makes a choice. The choice of leaving the responsibility on Luke, and trusting that he would make the right decision. This was something only a leader could do, and a leader is what Percy had become.

Gone was the lost, scared, confused, and awkward little boy. Gone was the boy who had little self-confidence, who gave into taking a potion that would change his appearance, simply because that was what he had thought mattered. Gone was the boy who felt constantly bitter, who was antagonized and targeted by his ADHD and dyslexia, who lived each day knowing that by the end of the school year, he would surely be expelled, and his mom would have to send him to another one.

The older Percy, the one that saved Olympus, saved the world, is so much different. He manages to last two years (and counting) at Goode High School, something he had never thought he could do. He embraces his flaws because he knows it makes him stronger. He learns to accept his ADHD and dyslexia because it in fact makes him a more powerful demigod. He leads the Camp Half-Blood campers into battle and helps them gain their own confidence. He has friends who truly care about him and would sacrifice themselves for him, just as he would. He gains much more knowledge and experience about his abilities and realizes that they make him special.

Perseus Jackson has had the smoothest, and most perfect evolution throughout the series. 

Yuuri, Victor, and the Importance of Good Communication

Victuuri Week 2017 – Day 4 – Free for All

So for today’s free for all I’d like to talk about something I haven’t heard too much about in the context I’m hoping to present it. My topic is specifically about how Victor and Yuuri are both very independent individuals and how that, combined with both of them having zero experience with serious emotional relationships, works to create miscommunications between the two of them.

To start off, I’d like to clarify what I mean when I say they’re independent. Obviously they’re both able to take care of themselves when it comes to stuff such as physical needs (like feeding themselves, etc). I’m talking more about how they’re emotionally independent. They’re both the kind of people who keep their problems to themselves and try to solve them all without relying on the help of others. They both actually tell us this directly.

We see this come up a bunch during the series even though both are aware that they do this. You can see it happen as early as episode 2 when Victor is hurt that Yuuri is rejecting him after the connection he felt they had at the banquet but never brings it up with him. Instead he sits on and stews in it. And likewise for Yuuri, he’s very confused as to why Victor is there at all and is being so forward with him but never asks him why. He just comes to his own conclusions and treats them as the truth until proven otherwise.

On top of them both being used to handling their problems on their own and internalizing their worries, they both also have no experience with deep emotional love relationships. I use the adjectives deep, emotional, and love to describe the relationship because you can have any other combination of those and have it not really touch the depth and type of relationship these two have with each other. They may have had other relationships but none that came close to this level.

(More under the cut, you’re not done yet!)

I know that Ethan’s not gonna hit a milestone for a lil while but I’ve been thinking about a plan to hold a meetup because I’ve seen it be done for Jack (like fofparty or bossweek) and it would be so cool to make it happen.

Not saying that I am super qualified to do it, (I might as well hand this idea over to someone else) But I’m just having a thought where it’s a simple hangout for celebrating Ethan hitting 300k using a tag since that’s how it is usually done. Posting stuff under it and just getting to know people, you know?

Idk if it would even go well when the time actually comes but I want to make it a possibility. I also maybe should message people about this who might be interested in helping me out.

So if you guys have any input on this at all please let me know cause I’m making a lot of considerations for it when he actually gets close to 300k :D

And if this just gets buried then honestly I’ll still go with it anyways, who knows this is just the basis for the idea.

Thanks for reading this mess regardless though! (if it even makes sense haha sorry i can’t word that well sometimes..)

ive noticed a thing on this website (and in a lot of social justice spaces in general) where people are more focused on making themselves look good by announcing their stance against, like, shitty groups (like terfs and nazis, which is popular here in particular) and make/add onto posts like “reblog to punch a nazi” or “reblog to make a terf angry” and such, but they dont really do much to like……. uplift or rally for or even really discuss their support for OR the discrimination happening against, yknow, the groups actually affected by, say, terfs and nazis.

i see people on here talking about hating terfs all the time but rarely show any support for actual trans women (and also thinking terfs are the end-all, be-all of transphobia, and that transmisogyny doesnt take other forms which MANY of us are complicit in as well, even if it might not be consciously), and as a jewish person myself, i remember seeing dozens of posts about punching or killing nazis after the richard spencer thing, or the captain america thing, but i rarely see anyone but other jews actually uhhh discussing actual antisemitism and the actual, real, tangible damage nazis are doing and have done to people like me and other minority groups

people who were happy to talk about how much they hated nazis because it was cool at the moment or it was about a fictional character didnt even touch upon antisemitism or jewish people, and now that its not as topical anymore, it DEFINITELY isnt being talked about outside of largely jewish or rromani circles

like yeah of course assholes like transmisogynists and neo-nazis shouldnt have a platform and of course people SHOULD be opposed to them, but patting yourself on the back for barely even doing the bare ass minimum and then not doing anything to show solidarity for the groups who are hurt by the hateful folk yall claim to be opposed to? embarrassing

WC 1043


Coming home from class that day, you tossed your schoolbag onto the floor and flopped on the couch. You were exhausted and sore and desperately needed a break from school.

Groaning, you heard a knock on the door. Hoping it would be one of your roommates with their own key, you called out, “Who is it?”

“Bucky,” came the muffled answer.

“Oh, for fuck’s sake,” you muttered, hauling yourself up. Throwing open the door, you snapped, “What?” and without waiting for his answer, you returned back to the couch.

“Who pissed in your cornflakes this morning?” he asked, rummaging through the fridge.

Grumbling, your eyes widened when you recalled the emergency chocolate stash you had hidden above the fridge. As Bucky was much taller than you, he could probably reach it easier so you tried sweet talking him.

“Bucky?” you called out, in a sing-songy voice. “Care to be a gentleman?”

He outright laughed at you, “What do you need??

“I’m going to share a secret with you but you can’t tell anyone. Promise?” you pulled yourself upright and looked at him. He nodded his agreement, “Can you reach into the cupboard above the fridge and pull out my emergency chocolate stash? Please?”

You caught him rolling his eyes at you but he abided to your request. You squealed and clapped your hands when he reached it easily and he brought the box of chocolate over to you.

“My hero,” you drawled out, snatching the box from him as he sat on the couch next to you.

Generously, you offered him a treat but he declined, munching on the apple he pilfered from your fridge. “You know,” he began but you held out your hand to silence him.

“I know the apple is better for me but right now, it’s chocolate or wine and it’s too early to drink.”

He shrugged, “Suit yourself. What’s the matter though?”

You fell back on the couch groaning. “Ugh. I’ve got three essays due in the next week on top of wrapping up some independent study units. Then, I have a play to review and it’s not enough to read the play but I actually have to trek to the theatre to watch it which normally I wouldn’t mind but I’ve picked up some double shifts at work to try to make extra money so I can maybe - just maybe - pay off some of my student loans.” You stopped to breathe.

“So you’ve got a lot on your plate right now?”

It was your turn to roll your eyes, “That’s what you took away from that? Yes. I’ve got a lot on my plate right now.”

“Perfect,” he smiled at you. “Turn around.”

There’s how I hope she would respond and and how I think she might actually respond I think are too different things.

(BMC) Rich's lisp headcanon

Because no one can have enough lisping Rich on their blog.
(Also… This takes place after Rich has come out, and after he and Jake are both over the fire thing.)

-Rich is really insecure about his lisp
-It’s one of the main reasons he got his squip to begin with
-He used to have this talent of avoiding as many words with ’s’ in them as possible
-Everyone would be amazed at how good his vocabulary was and wow Rich, you must really love reading
-But no
-He just really hated his lisp
-When he got the squip, it helped him get over it
-Now that the squip is gone though, so is his ability to say ’s’
-It’s back to thquare one
-Rich slowly builds back up his ’s’ avoiding talent
-No one notices
-Except for Jake
-Who tries not to let on how much it upsets him
-He always thought Rich was a pretty cute guy
-(nohomo)
-And when he found out Rich had a lisp, he thought it was the most adorable thing he’d ever heard
-(nohomo²)
-He thinks Rich’s insecurity about it is ridiculous and saddening
-He decides to help him get over it
-Whenever they hang out, Jake tries to get him to say ’s’ as much as possible
- ‘Hey, Jake, what d'you want me to order for you?’
‘A hamburger.’
‘Got i–’
‘And a caesar salad, a strawberry slushie, and some soy sauce on the side, please.’
-Rich thinks Jake is screwing with him
-He never even finishes all the plates ordered for him
-He starts avoiding Jake
-Jake, confused, tries talking to him about it
-Rich just shrugs him off
- ‘Rich, hey, wanna hang out this weekend?’
'Got paraphernalia to do.’
'What’s that mean?
'A thing or two.’
'Ohh, right, haha. Next weekend?’
'More paraphernalia.’
-Jake becomes more and more confused
-Rich becomes more and more convinced Jake is mocking him
-Finally one day he snaps
- 'For god'th thake, Jake! Thtop being an athhole about my lithp, and I might actually think about chilling with you again thometime!!’
-He uses six ’s’ words and hopelessly butchers them all
-Humiliated and angry, he turns to go
-Jake grabs his hand
- 'I like it when you lisp.’
-Rich is confused (and still pretty angry)
-Jake has to explain
-When he’s done, Rich calls him an idiot four times and a jerk twelve
-But is still quietly happy that Jake finds attractive something he’s always thought of as ugly
-They start hanging out again
-Rich becomes a little more comfortable with his lisp
-Jake doesn’t pressure him, but does his best to be supportive
-So when they kiss a few months later and Rich doesn’t say 'I love you’ when Jake does, he’s a little worried
-Until Rich pulls him close, hugs him tightly, and whispers:
- 'Thame’

Unpopular Hetalia Opinion: Violent RusAme

I know well RusAme is commonly known for Cold War, and often first things that come to mind when thinking about Cold War is hatred, sarcasm, and violence.

And that’s why it’s no wonder many RusAme canonverse fanfictions that’s based on history contains violence, ranging from verbal sarcasms to actual punching / shooting that’s very bloody and violent.

Seems reasonable. Cold War -> Hate and Rivalry ->  Violence. Easy to think.

But I just find it’s kind of exaggerating to “personify” Cold War as two men exchanging blows / bullets directly. Because direct combat between USA and USSR actually never officially happened. It’s more like lots of verbal threats and provoking other people to attack the other, but never directly make a move. Because making the first direct attack in the Cold War would make one of them (USA or USSR) as the “villain”.

And frankly speaking, USA and USSR were both superpower nations that were very cautious in their move, which explains why Cold War went on for decades without actually growed to the actual direct war between USA and USSR like Axis vs Allies in WW2.

True, there were few instances of indirect wars that made USA and USSR soldiers to oppose each other, but like I said before, it’s indirect as in they support opposing sides but not directly attack each other, like in Korean and Vietnam war. In other instances like Polar Bear Expedition, England tricked USA soldiers to make them end up facing Bolshevik’s soldiers which was not their original purpose being there, which made USA troops’ morale down and making it one of reasons that made the expedition failed. In short, yes they might be throwing few punches there but it’s all within indirect context like ‘you punched my friend so i’ll punch you’ or ‘sorry i was tricked by others to be here, i’m just defending myself here’ not just a mere shallow ‘you irritate me that’s why I punched you’.

So it just makes me think those over violent fighting portrayal between USA and USSR for Cold War in numerous hetalia fanworks are too exaggerating, since most of them were done in a mere shallow context of ‘you insulted me so i’ll punch you’. Lots of propaganda, threats, insults, yes. But actual direct punching / shooting until they’re badly bruised and bloody? I think that’s too unrealistic historically. Maybe a few punches here and there in the few indirect context I explained in previous paragraph but never directly.

Even in hetalia, Hima only draws Ivan and Alfred to be bickering and throwing insults / sarcasms at best, but never actually fighting by fists / guns.

They don’t even touch each other in those scenes. 

And before you drag these scenes to tell me I’m wrong that hima did portray them actually fighting:

I’m just gonna say, those are just AU and not the actual canonverse world, which doesn’t follow any historical facts at all.

Lastly, I understand that exaggeration sometimes is needed in writing fiction (even fiction that’s based on facts such as hetalia), to make the story spicier and more interesting. But still, it’s an exaggeration nonetheless and I just want that point to come across this part of fandom that loves portraying Cold War RusAme as an actual instinctive physical brawl fighting instead of intelligent calculating mind games like it actually was.
