Pearlrose + Pirates, please?

For Femslash February. Prompt me here!

“Help!”

Garnet called out to the passing ship as loudly as she could, not knowing if her voice would carry over the water or if anyone would see her frantic waving. The small sloop she had stolen from the harbour two days ago had run into difficulties as she slept, and was now taking on water fast. If the ship didn’t stop to help her, she might drown.

She didn’t know enough about sailing to recognise the vessel, or the colours it flew – but that didn’t matter. For the first time in her life, Garnet had found happiness, and she was going to fight to keep it – even if that meant a dangerous venture into the unknown.

Slowly, the ship drew closer. It drew level with her floundering vessel, and a rope ladder was tossed over the side, but no-one aboard was visible. With no other option, Garnet leapt into the sea, swam towards the strange ship, and began the slow, aching climb to the deck.

As soon as her head appeared over the railing, a rapier was pointed at her throat.

“Don’t hurt me! Please!”

The rapier was held by a slender woman, who met Garnet’s gaze with a steely look. After a moment, she jerked her head, signalling for Garnet to climb aboard – but she did not lower her sword.

As Garnet’s feet hit the deck, she heard a voice for the first time.

“We have a visitor?”

She turned her head at the sound, in time to see a woman emerge from below decks. She was vast – taller than Garnet by at least a foot, and heavy-set in a way that suggested strength as well as comfortable living. Thick pink curls cascaded over the shoulders of her worn leather jacket, and at her belt hung two enormous pistols in holsters marked with the emblem of The Rose.

Garnet suddenly realised where she was. This was the Crystal Gem, flagship of the notorious pirate queen Rose Quartz.

I have a tiny porch, so it’s a struggle finding space for plants. Unlike my upstairs neighbors who have railings for their balconies, here on the ground floor, I’m stuck with a screen that doesn’t afford me anything onto which to hang a pot. But, hang on… I’ve got a little ledge I can do something with!

This is super simple and cheap to do (under $20 for me). Materials:

  • good quality 1x2 - it cannot split on the 1-inch side!
  • measuring tape & pencil
  • saw, or someone to make 1 cut for you
  • 2 or more c-clamps
  • pots (I used Ikea’s bygel cups, since they are only $1, a fantastic size, and have a great lip for hanging)
  • hammer & nails
  • plants!
  • optional: stain or paint

All you’re doing is clamping a piece of wood to the porch frame in order to have something to screw hardware into. I used 4″ C-clamps for this project, but 3″ probably would have worked.

Choose your 1x2 carefully, as you don’t want it to split when you hammer nails into the side! Also, if you don’t have a saw or don’t want to make the cut yourself, most hardware store will do it for you.

If you don’t have cups like these, you could also install hooks and drill holes into a plastic pot – just make sure it’s strong enough!

i was trying to type hatred and accidentally typed “hetred” and honestly i think we should start using it

annoyed at the amount of heterosexuality in young adult fiction? let’s call it hetred

sick of someone using you as the token gay friend? tell em about your hetred

upset about your conservative grandmother giving homophobic rants at the dinner table? channel your inner hetred

I’ve been thinking...

Remember the Boiling Rock, Part 1?

Sokka asks Suki where the other Kyoshi Warriors are, once he gets into her cell. She tells him they’re not in this prison, that she was singled out as their leader and sent to the Boiling Rock alone. Right?

Fast-forward to Boiling Rock, Part 2, the scene of Azula’s betrayal, she says she wants her friends locked up somewhere she doesn’t have to see either of their faces again. Stands to reason to assume that they were locked up in this very prison, right?

Fast-forward again to the final episode, Sozin’s Comet, Part 4: Mai shows up as Zuko is getting dressed, he asks if she was let out of prison, Mai says her uncle pulled some strings. Hence… all logic says Mai and Ty Lee were kept in the Boiling Rock indeed, where their betrayal took place. It’s where Mai’s uncle should have enough influence to get his niece and friend released, right?

Alright, so, with all this in mind, this is the part I’m confused by:

We saw Ty Lee joining the Kyoshi Warriors. Some thought it was nice, or funny, or cool… anyhow, Sokka freaks out and thinks she’s trying to trick everyone again, Suki explains that she’s one of them now. And then Ty Lee says: “Yeah, the girls and I really bonded in prison. And after a few chi blocking lessons, they said I could join their group. We’re going to be best friends forever.”

Now, outside of the glaring irony that Ty Lee hated to be part of a match-set in The Beach, yet now she joins a group where everyone is wearing the same uniform and same facepaint (the only different factor would be the hairstyles)…

How did Ty Lee bond with the Kyoshi Warriors in prison when she was, most likely, in the Boiling Rock, while the others were explicitly stated not to be there?
