is probably what i was thinking

this started off as a “the final sacrifice” sorta reference, because what’s the point of having a cult to play with if i can’t make just the worst rowsdower jokes? but then i just kinda liked it more as an actual action pic, so… yeah. went in that direction instead.

WIP: First and Last Sentence

Aaaaah, @zombizombi tagged me to post the first and last sentence of a WIP I’m working on!

First:  Bitty overbeats his meringue.

Last:  It feels like there should be guilt, more than the abstract obligation, like there should be some actual sense that he’s done something wrong.

Bitty, what have you done? 

Uhh I’m tagging @rushingsnowy @thehausghosts @polyamorousparson @blithelybonny @agrossunderstatement and whoever else is working on something they wanna tease a snippet of!

💀 - Darth Maul

Maul stared down at the durasteel floor.  The cold seeped into his bones, making his knees ache as he knelt.  He could feel his neck growing sore from too long bent forward in submission, but he resisted the urge to shift.  It would only anger his master further.  

My apprentice…

An electric shiver of dread traced its way down Maul’s spine at the words.  The instinct to run, to flee, to somehow escape swelled so large in his chest that he could almost feel his stiff joints moving, pushing him upright and away.

He stayed kneeling.  Footsteps rang out now, slow, but inexorably approaching.

You have disappointed me, Maul.  I expect… more, especially from one who claims to be my loyal servant.

The steps stopped.  Maul could see the bottom of a dark robe now, wafting slightly in the wake of movement.  He almost shuddered as a hand was placed on his bare scalp.  It was the only warmth in the cold room.  

But I am not unreasonable.

Maul was hyperaware of every small calluse and scar on his master’s palm as it slid against his tattooed skin. He squeezed his eyes shut as he felt fingers close around one of his horns.  Gently at first, they began to twist, a torturously slow increase of pressure that soon screamed throughout his skull.  The twisting never relented or changed pace, but too soon too late the wrenching pain came to a crescendo and-

I forgive you.

Maul’s master stroked his head one last time, almost fondly, before turning and walking away.  The ragged, sharp bit of bone fell unceremoniously to the floor.  Maul still knelt, trying to keep himself from the ragged gasps he could feel wanting to rip their way out of his lungs.  

It was nothing to cry about, he decided.  He would simply do better next time.  It wasn’t as if the horn wouldn’t grow back.  They always had before.

I never thought I’d get to see club penguin’s iceberg tip but here we are, probably 10 years since I stopped believing it was possible, and dreams have come true. (Excuse the sniff in the middle - I was holding back tears)

Since we have our leaked/not really leaked Steven Bomb from the CN app, there’s obviously a lot to analyze. For this post I’m going to focus on the gem everyone’s been screaming about:

Aquamarine. And to be fair, the little blue gnat is pretty interesting.

We all knew her introduction as an innocent wasn’t going to last. Between the leaks and CN releasing all of the eps at once on the app, the effects this might have had was kind of lost. But it is worth noting that when things are going her way or someone has something she needs and she thinks she’s going to get it without a fight, she does revert back to her child like demeanor. Meaning that although she is far from innocent, her introduction truly was not an act on her part. That said, just like Navy, she is entirely aware of the effect her demeanor has on other people. So she uses it. 

Oh no! You found us.

Unlike Navy, Aquamarine’s behavior surpasses conniving and borders on straight up evil. As far as I can remember, she’s been the only villain in the series to date that has to threatened to kill humans in any context- let alone use them as hostages.

Can you remind me… I mean my memory is perfect. But, our orders were to bring back six humans. I’m just not sure. Did they specify… alive? You know, I don’t think they did.

The people she’s threatening have done nothing to her. They place her in no actual danger. She straight up does not care one way or the other about the crystal gems. (actually no one from homeworld seems to care about the crystal gems aside from Rose Quartz, but that’s for another post) What she does care about is the fact that they’re standing in the way of an easy completion to her mission. 

Which begs the question: if an agate terrifies, what the heck is an aquamarine supposed to do? 

Her design and demeanor scream perfectly stuck up prefect on a power bender, but what is her role in gem society? Is she an investigator/ police officer or is she some kind of intergalactic dog catcher? Her powers are good for offence and defense. But as death threat happy as she is, her magic wand’s ability to capture and throw at great distances does not actually harm those she uses it against. It just serves its purpose: it either captures something she’s after, or gets rid of something that stands in her way. 

That said, she has no problem ordering Topaz to inflict deadly force. 

And then there’s this:

I know what you’re thinking Topaz. It seems a little suspicious that “my dad” is also a Steven. But you know… if it means getting out of here, I’ll believe it. 


So here’s Aquamarine. She’s use to being both the most intelligent AND the most powerful person in any given situation. And what has it done? It’s made her lazy.

She knows as well as everyone there that Steven is definitely not “my dad”. And to be frank… she gives no fucks whatsoever. She thinks this is below her, and is willing to do as little work as possible to fulfill the minimum requirement of a task she was given. 

Not to mention that once again, she’s placed the dirty work of this on Topaz. If she gets called out for this, she’s set it up so that Topaz will take the fall. 

I would say that she’s intelligent enough to be aware of all these things, but she also doesn’t care about any of it.

And that will be her undoing.
