Watching a pet slowly die under my younger self’s crappy care >___<

this probably isn't suitable for a drabble bUT i thought this is cute so!!! how about rei and chigusa take a walk in the park and chigusa loves the colours of the trees in autumn and just looks really happy but the only thing rei sees is her because she's so beautiful and he can't help but kiss her. then they cuddle on a bench, drink tea which rei brought from at home, and talk for hours ;w;

ahhhhhhhh, rebecca i could kiss you!!!!! <33

wow i can just imagine rei staring at her while she’s looking around in awe, and then she notices that he’s gone quiet and looks at him and notices him staring. they both blush and look away but look back at each other, and rei is staring again and starts leaning in without thinking because all his logic and theory is being thrown out the window. before either of them know it, they’re sharing a short, sweet kiss. they both pull away with chigusa blushing because rei’s still staring. he whispers “you’re so beautiful chigusa-chan” and she just stares at him, smiling because he’s called her by her given name. “thank you, rei-kun” she says before hugging him and he hugs her back tightly and then commences the tea drinking and cuddling!!

aww yea i’m gonna write this!!

mumbles about Amethyst

I really like Amethyst as a character cuz I relate to her a lot. Not in terms of personality, but situation.

I know we don’t know exactly how gems age (or if they do) but in the grand scheme of things Amethyst is a baby. She was born on Earth, presumably during the tail-end of the war, and adopted by the Crystal Gems. She’s smaller and stumpier than the other gems (this could be just a design thing though like Ruby and Sapphire), and definitely the most outright childish gem we’ve seen so far. That’s not a bad thing. As of the show’s plot she’s probably mentally a young teenager.

And think about what she’s been through already, just within Steven’s timeline. She lost her mom. Rose Quartz was probably the closest thing she had to a mom. But now she’s gone and this weird kid has usurped her throne as the new baby of the family. What older sibling can’t relate to their thunder being stolen?

I relate to both of those things. Right around the time my sister was born, my dad got really sick. He started drinking A LOT, his weight ballooned, and he was completely emotionally and most times physically unavailable. And then he died when I was 17. My sister was 7. Both of our birthdays were the month after.

So I really feel what Amethyst is going through. She jokes that Steven’s her “kid” and I do that all the time with my sister because I had such a hand in raising her that our relationship is this weird sibling/parent relationship and it took a really long time for me to find my footing with it. I had to grow up really goddamn fast, and so did Amethyst. But she’s still transitioning. In a lot of ways she’s still just a little kid trying to figure out how to be an adult, like I was.

And I mean you see the “sibling had to mature super fast because of unavailable parents” thing all the time I guess (VC Andrews novels anyone?? The Hunger Games?) but usually it’s played up for drama and the older sibling is always brooding and resentful. But Amethyst’s relationship with Steven isn’t like that at all. She’s been this goofy kid for so much of the show but we’re kind of seeing her mature in some places (and it’s been made pretty clear that she knows she has growing up to do, she’s incredibly insecure!) and in so many ways it’s like watching my later teen years play out right in front of me. It’s weird. It’s cool. I like it.

I can’t wait until Amethyst finds that sweet spot between being an adult while staying true to her goofy self. I really, really love the family dynamics in this show because it reminds me so much of my own, and I never get to say that.
