its probably the most perfect thing ever

One of my favorite things about Mike and Eleven is that its realistic. Its not over-romantic and perfect. Its awkward. Super Awkward. He never knows what to say, and stutters his way through everything. Their kiss wasn’t perfect, it was probably the most awkward and 12 year old like kiss I’ve ever seen. 
Thats what makes it so adorable and innocent.

You're either lying about never arguing or your relationship is fake asf lmao basically what twin said in a tweet & it's true?! Like that's life, how do you not argue?! Just seems too picture perfect to be real. Js.

This is probably the most ignorant thing I’ve ever read. Just because our relationship doesn’t consists of fights you consider it “too perfect to be real” nah when we’re the same person and have the same outlooks on things there’s not much to fight about. She’s a shit sometimes but she’s my shit.

Connor kenway relationship headcanons? I love your blog❤️

Ahhhhh, thank you!!

Alright so I have a lot of feelings about this man
—He will literally just engulf you in his arms if you ever fall asleep with/near him. You can not escape.
—The heat he emits is unreal. Like, in winter you don’t need a blanket no matter how cold it is, it is incredible. Summer is less enjoyable though.
—If anyone ever-ever-makes you noticeably upset or uncomfortable, all it takes is a look and you’ll probably never see them again.
—He’ll call you so many pet names in his native language, but probably keeps most of the meanings to himself (especially if you’re tiny)
—This man is so weak for your puppy eyes. Like, even if they’re not very convincing, he caves so easily.
—If you ever get sick, he will coddle you to the point that it’s almost infuriating.
—Do not doubt the power of his own puppy eyes, because if you do it’s already too late, you are doomed.
—Its nearly impossible to argue with him, because he’s practically the perfect boyfriend (totally husband material). The only thing that would probably cause an argument would be worrying for each others’ safety.
—DO. NOT. CRY. He is so confused, but he tries to be so helpful. Most of the time it works, but he gets so upset when he sees you cry.
—He’s so good with kids and animals and it’s the most heartwarming thing.
—I totally headcanon he brings stray animals home all the time.
—Your family loves him almost instantly and you’re really surprised, because how?
—Like, you walk into your family’s home expecting glares from your father/mother/siblings/whoever, but they practically immediately warm up to him.
—He’s so sweet and he loves you so much, he would do anything for you.


I’m Julie…the mun behind Jazimina, Risri, and a bunch of other toons.

I am a single mom, living with my son and trying to raise my daughter to know that just because bad things happen it doesn’t mean you can’t live happy.

I struggle with depression and anxiety. I have good days. I have bad days.

I was having a good day today. Then I got messaged by someone and have been having a conversation with them. And its kind of brought my mood down.

I am not perfect.

I have times where I can be super sweet. I have times where I can be a raging bitch. I am proud to say that raging bitch Julie doesn’t show her head that often.

I am for the most part a pretty happy person.

I don’t like negativity. I don’t like conflict. To the point that I know I probably make people mad because I won’t fight back. I just go quiet and passive aggressively do things.

I’m not proud of that.

Did I mention I’m not perfect?

So, if I have ever made you feel like I don’t like you, like I don’t care, like I was ignoring you. I apologize.

Where was I going with this? Oh yeah. Hi.

I’m just gonna try to write and RP and have fun. I hope you do the same.

Spring Anime Final Impressions

Now that I’m back from the dead and only my detestable part-time job keeping me from being a NEET, I can finally go back to do the shit I opened this log for: rant about anime! Spring season is over and there was so much variety and so many good shows that, after a certain cutoff point, it became difficult to ascertain my top picks for the quarter. So here are my summarized last impressions for this season, as usual, from worst to best (The top two are pretty much a tie, so don’t pay the order there much mind). I’m not mentioning the half-dozen shows I dropped because I already addressed that in this post

It must be noted that I’m extremely gullible, so if a show had a lot of flaws along the way but nailed a perfect ending, I’m probably gonna rate it higher than it should. Meanwhile, if a show that was great through most of its run craps the landing, I’m gonna be harsher with it than it probably deserves

Mayoiga/The Lost Village. To be honest I don’t even have words to describe this. I couldn’t even begin to explain all that was wrong with this show. Nonsensical direction, plot and characterization might be an apt way to put it. To make things worse, the last couple of episodes dropped all of the hilarity of earlier moments (nothing will ever top the silicone boob monster), to focus in the two most boring characters out of the entire cast, with an amazingly stupid underlying “message” about “psychological scars”. It’s sincerely baffling that there are people who think this mess was being “bad on purpose”. And the most frustrating part of it all is that not a single person died. At least Another had the component of ridiculous over the top death scenes that had me laughing all the way through. Lost Village didn’t even deliver on that front. Might be worth the watch just to amaze yourself in how such a thing even came to happen. I also can’t believe that not a single person died because I was so ready to see all these despicable people meet a bloody end. Rated 0/10. It failed in everything it attempted to do and the final episodes weren’t even so-bad-is-funny which was criminal in and of itself.

Super Lovers: This shit ended so long ago I hardly remember it. It’s horrible and gross and I can’t believe it’s getting a second season when Love Stage isn’t. Agh. As the weeks went by it just got more and more gross with worse and worse grooming undertones. But, to be honest, I might have been able to deal with all of that if the romantic drama was even the slightest bit compelling, and it’s not. At least Junjou Romantica (which y’all know I despise) has the latent conflict of having to tell Misaki’s brother about their relationship. Here everyone sees Haru and Ren kissing, sleeping together and even borderline humping and everyone’s a-ok with that. Not only is that very creepy but makes for very boring storytelling. There are no stakes, no tension and no drama whatsoever. And I’m still gonna watch S2 for the pleasure of trashing it. Rated 0.5/10 and I’m being lenient here because the dog is cute.

Sailor Moon Crystal III:  Chibiusa’s friendship with Hotaru was well-developed (except at the finale) and the first set of OP/ED was great. That’s about the only good things I can say about it as a whole. But the rest, well, poop painted in gold is still poop. Even with better designs and slightly better animation, the story was as flat and childishly stupid, full of plotholes and contrivances, and the character development was nonexistent. The entire season is about how Usagi is a perfect queen and everyone loves her and she can do no wrong. Character relationships are paper thin, nothing in the entire series has sold me on why the senshis are such good friends. And the very beloved HarukaxMichiru pair that I was excited to meet for the first time didn’t even exist. I still struggle to figure out what made this shallow and badly-written series an all-time classic.  Rated 2/10

Kiznaiver: I have conflicting thoughts on this show. The premise on which it rests is incredibly stupid, and not in a good way. The show acts like it’s being deep and clever, but when the whole exposition happens, I was left scratching my head because the writers were obviously challenging my suspension of disbelief. I didn’t care about the characters either. I kind of liked Tenga because his design was very appealing to me, he looked mighty handsome when he smiled at Chidori at the end, but that’s about it. And I’m probably gonna get stoned for this but I really disliked Nico. Her crush on Tenga came completely out of left field and her character was overall annoying. The only moment I liked her was when she said she didn’t care about Noriko because those were my thoughts exactly. The first half of the show was absolutely a drag, entirely boring and unengaging. All that being said, the visual execution of the show is top notch, the director is clearly very talented. The scenes at the bridge with Katsuhira and Noriko were stunning. And it hit some great emotional notes in the second half, even if I couldn’t get behind on what drove the characters to those emotions. I’m a big sucker for pining, so the scene of everyone screaming under the rain hit my buttons just right. But everything else about was just so… ugh. The teachers were insufferable. The kids were insufferable. The premise was insufferable. And there’s just a lot it does wrong for me to even think of recommending it to anyone. So it’ll just have to stick to a mediocre lower-middle spot. And it’s sad because it could’ve done great things. Maybe next time, TRIGGER. Rated 5/10

Kotetsujo no Kabaneri: This is the reason we didn’t get more Attack on Titan this year (even though we were supposed to). And that’s fine I guess. It was a fun and exciting show for the most part, with great action scenes and gorgeous designs. It kind of went off the rails in the middle section, but it recovered in time for a bombastic finale, so almost all of its shit is forbidden. I mean, don’t go in expecting your life will change, but it’s a perfectly acceptable piece of entertainment. And Ayame’s character really grew into her role instead of devolving like I’d feared she’d do, which was great. Oh, Mumei also flings Ikoma like a sack of potatoes back into the train and it’s hilarious. 7/10. Could be a little higher, but yeah, that middle portion was baaaad.

Joker Game: This is another one of those shows that I don’t know what to make of. I think I liked the concept of it more than I liked the actual show, mostly because the final episode was so terribly underwhelming and with that gross, unnecessary sexist remark at the end. This is probably the one show that doesn’t benefit from how much a series’s ending influences my opinion of it as a whole. If they had capped off the show with an introspection into Yuuki’s character this could’ve gone way up higher, but it didn’t. I doubt I’ll remember this show a month from now because it didn’t give me anything to chew on character-wise, which is a shame because it had so much potential. Oh well. Rated 7.5/10

Shonen Maid: This show was way more adorable than it had any right to be, with a loveable cast and predictable, yet funny storylines. It took a premise that could’ve made it a rival for Super Lovers in the creepy department and made something cute and sweet. I’m partial to family stories, so this one worked pretty great for me.  But the last couple of episodes teased the possibility of predictably heart-wrenching melodrama and then decided to cop-out. The final two episodes were actually rather boring in comparison to the rest of the show. I was also thrown off and annoyed by the last minute introduction of a girl that I suppose is meant to be a love interest for Chihiro. Not only was her introduction to the series clumsy –nothing like the well-handled introductions of the other cast members-, but she brought nothing to the two episodes she was in, and was more of a background character. Also, if anyone’s gonna be a love interest for Chihiro it should be Hino because their level of mutual understanding is wonderful. 8/10

Flying Witch: Honestly these three shows stand relatively equal to me in terms of enjoyment. I’m putting Flying Witch in the middle because I got a little less magic than I had hoped for, but it had an absolutely beautiful ending. The last two episodes showed us how lovely and magical this show could be, so in comparison it’s kind of sad that the rest of the show was borderline pedestrian as far as supernatural stuff. But the show accomplished what it set itself to do while delivering a loveable cast and a pleasant atmosphere, and it’s definitely a stand-out in the slice-of-life genre. Rated 8/10

Tanaka-kun wa itsumo kedaruge: I caught on to this show sometime mid-season due to all the positive responses it had. It was definitely worth checking it out. Like Flying Witch, it is perhaps too slow and quiet, but in Tanaka-kun’s case, that is kind of the point. Like all the others in this section, it has a loveable cast, with all the characters working quite well as a group. One could say Tanaka is the polar opposite of Sakamoto, in that we’re always waiting to see how far Tanaka is willing to go for the sake of his own laziness. I wasn’t a big fan of how much the last episode focused on teasing Tanaka about his nonexistent relationship with Shiraishi (people who won’t take “I don’t have a girlfriend” for an answer irk me to no end), but it led us to a very sweet realization from Tanaka himself about how he’s come to enjoy his friends’ company. Rated 8/10. Continuing in the sacred tradition of Seki-kun and Nozaki-kun, Tanaka-kun joins the list of unusual school comedies with unusual leads that are way more fun than they’ve any right to be.

Bungou Stray Dogs: This is a hard show to rate because I had very high expectations for it, but it turned out to be something completely different from what I wanted, as I have mentioned before. It’s not that the thing it did turn out to be is bad, but it’s not what I wanted from it. In spite of that it still managed to be fun and the character work they did was great. I came to really love the cast. The last confrontation was really cool, especially with Mori Ogai pushing Atsushi forward, that was very interesting. I could’ve used a bit more Akiko Yosano because she’s the true boss of this season and I loved her, but I’ll be looking forward to season 2.  Rated 8.5/10

Sakamoto desu ga?! This was definitely the stand out comedy of the season, with a unique take on the old high school anime setting and a protagonist that was perfectly able to carry the whole show in spite of its irregular production values. It’s not without its faults, and there are a handful of episodes where the jokes just don’t land, but its overall a lot of laughs and over-the-top fun. There’s not much else to say about this anime Mary Poppins other than I’m glad the show addressed Acchan’s huge gay crush on Sakamoto :D 9/10

Assassination Classroom: That was a dang ballsy ending and I applaud Matsui for it! Lesser mangaka would’ve gone the cop-out route –it even seemed like he was gonna do that at some point-. This second season had its ups and downs, it had great stories and rushed plot points, but the finale earns it a high place in my book. This is truly a unique series –especially for Shonen Jump- with a message about growing up, finding your own talent, and how important a teacher can be, that it’s not  a job to be taken lightly. Even though a part of me was slightly hoping for the cop-out ending, but I’m also glad they didn’t go that way and preserved the wonderfully executed emotional climax. 9/10

Concrete Revolutio: Anime that takes a spin on historical characters or periods is the stuff my dreams are made of, and I’m not exaggerating. Even though it had a shakey start and could’ve used more episodes to really establish all of its ideas, ConRevo was a creative and smart take on the 60s in Japan. It might have lacked a little in character development, but it still told a complete story that’s different from everything else that’s out there, with a unique visual concept and maybe a thing or two to say about Japan’s politics. This is certainly a show I’d like to binge (once I know more about the period, my specialty is 30s Japan!) eventually to really grasp the story in its full Rated 9/10

Macross Delta: I wasn’t very impressed with the first episode but boy has this show grown on me. Probably 90% of that is that Mikumo is my new waifu and queen of the world. I wasn’t big on the idea of an idol unit instead of a solo singer (stop it with the idols Japan, that industry is horrible), but I’ve come to like Walküre. Though I wouldn’t mind if they wrote out the Reina and Makina because they don’t really add anything vocally to the group or plot-wise to the series (also Makina’s godawful nicknames need to die. I fucking hate every time she speaks and calls someone by one of those dead stupid nicknames uuuugggh). Anyway, they’ve made an interesting story for this series and it’s one of the shows I most look forward to every week. The emotional peaks in episode 11 were absolutely beautiful. And the songs are pretty good in general, which is kinda important for a Macross show y’all 9.5/10

Ushio to Tora: Y’all know I’ve had an up-and-down relationship with Ushio to Tora. The first half-a-dozen monster of the week episodes bored me to tears, but once the plot picked up it got better and better. This final cour started on a rocky path too, rushing through plot points and character development (Nagare’s bit is still pretty damn bad in hindsight). But the second half and the final battle against Hakumen were absolutely among the best shit the shonen genre has to offer. Everything since Ushio’s reunion with his mom hit the perfect emotional beats to make for a great story and the Hakumen no Mono was one of the most memorable shonen villains I’ve seen. The final battle was hands down amazingly cool and emotional. Yes, the show could’ve been executed better, but what it accomplished was so great I’m willing to overlook most of its earlier flaws  Rated 9.5/10

Boku no Hero Academia : If it wasn’t evident at this point, I’m a complete sucker for shonen anime, and one that is so well executed makes my soul sing. Fans of the manga have complained about the slow pace but to be honest, with one exception, I never felt that the pace was slow. The characters are endearing, Deku is the type of shonen protagonist that I love, and I’m eager for new seasons to get to know the rest of the cast better. They did a good job in showing us at least a little bit from most of the kids in Deku’s class, so I was very satisfied with that. The animation was stunning and every episode reached moments of wonderful emotional peaks which had me on the verge of tears. And I love All Might. I’m so excited for S2 and I might pick up the manga too. 10/10

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable: This show is so fun. I love how much David Production loves this franchise, and how palpable their passion for the material is with the wonderful animation and direction, the lively colors, the great pacing. I’m way more engaged in Josuke and his crazy bizarre pals than I was with Jotaro’s crew, and I loved that crew. That they ended the quarter with the very emotional reunion with Joseph, who is my favorite Jojo. They’re doing a very good job in portraying Josuke’s inner conflict about resenting his father while also wanting to get close to him. Now that the bow and arrow have been captured, I do have to wonder what they’ll be doing for the next 25 episodes, but I’m absolutely willing to tag along 10/10

You’ll note that I didn’t mention Sinbad no Bouken. The reason for that is that, along with how busy I became with my dissertation (I can’t believe it’s finally over), the fansubs were taking a while to come out and I lost track of it. Since it’s coming to Netflix I’ll binge it when it shows up.

So that was spring! What were y’all’s favorite shows? Are you among the crazy people that claim Mayoiga was intentional comedy? Team Freyja or Team Mirage? Let me know which shows you liked/hated and if I missed out on anything that I should check out from the season. And stay tuned for my summer lineup, it’s a crazy busy season y’all!

You know how it feels to be rejected?

yeah. everyone does. the people who seem like they don’t have probably been rejected harder than imaginable. like the people who seem like that have no idea about that often have a tragic story of rejection. had an experience in the past 2 years that i won’t get into to much but it was the deepest moment of rejection I’ve ever felt. from people very close to me. really shakes you to your core. at the end, its kind of good. specifically as a song writer and someone who is trying to put things into the world that matter — id rather feel broken that perfect. the hardest moments are when i say the most honest things in the songs, and the more honest the songs are the more i feel alive in the long rung. so its not that i want to be rejected or miserable, its just that i like to stay closely in touch with how much good can come from the awful ways people can make you feel.

I’ve just got this image of an angel tugging exasperatedly at their hair and wailing “WHY?!”

humanity is confusing, though

like, they make all this art and music that doesn’t seem to serve any purpose? not all of it praises god and a lot of the semantic content could be expressed in more effective and less labor-intensive ways?? even their unadorned communication is inexact and dependent on things like body language, tone of voice, context–what’s even the point of having a language if the words won’t stay where you put them???

and like, bodies??? bodies are weird, and humanity’s relationship to their bodies is super weird–it’s integral to your understanding of yourself but also not you in the truest sense; it’s your point of access to the world but also part of the world and unreliable, really unreliable. angels don’t really get that, they’re all pure understanding and platonic knowledge, the idea that your mind could play tricks on you and that’s normal, to not see everything or hear everything, to be constantly and consistently ignorant and have to learn things

learning freaks them out. angels don’t learn things. angels are.

(well–they aren’t. that’s part of the problem.)

but probably the most confusing thing about humanity is that humanity is charming. humanity crowds its way into the angels’ non-space and humanity makes them be, makes them piecewise functions of beast and bird, writes entropy into an otherwise perfect system. And the angels are frustrated (emotions, those are new) and the angels muse wistfully about if humanity had never come (the subjunctive, that’s new too) but humanity moves through a world of half-certain shadows singing, wearing divinity in its skin.

and angels ask why

(that’s new too)

You cannot believe how much the whole idea of the US being the only bad guys bothers me. Yes they have done terrible things that shouldn't be overlooked but what country hasn't? I'm not saying it's right but neither is making a point to degrade them while putting everyone else on a pedestal when really they're all in the same boat.

Pretty much tbh.

Now, I’m absolutely not saying the US is some perfect glorious force for good. It is probably the most powerful nation to ever exist in human history, and has engaged in many unsavoury acts in pursuit of its interests. All of which should be criticised and acknowledged instead of engaging in intellectually dishonest whitewashing to trumpet a varnished, patriotic narrative.

But we should not take it to the extent of completely disregarding other countries and non-state actors who HAVE also very much contributed to the numerous problems plaguing the globe today. Just because they aren’t military, political and economic titans to the extent of the US doesn’t mean they can’t be responsible in large part for specific issues. Thinking the US is the sole hero or villain today are two sides of the same coin of American exceptionalism because it implies nobody else has an agenda or any sort of agency other than the United States. All countries are inherently self-interested- the difference being that large and powerful countries like the US (or Russia and China) have their fingers in more pies and the clout to trample over others. 

For example: Why is the rise of IS so frequently characterised as a singular byproduct of US foreign policy arming the Syrian rebels when a) IS rose to power, instead of remaining a fringe group, because of the Syrian Civil War, which Assad’s government bears most of the responsibility for causing? b) Other parties -to put it crudely- have their own horses in the game- Russia, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Turkey- and are sending weapons and other support too. c) There is a power struggle going on between the US and Russia, but there is a parallel one between Iran and Saudi Arabia, who are both jockeying for influence in the MENA region. Shi’a and Sunni, as well as other differences are feeding the Iran-Saudi Arabia conflict. Aren’t we also ignoring how the Arab Spring as a whole is what led to the unrest in Syria? And no, seeing the Arab Spring (as some people have done) as some pro-Western plot fostered by the CIA is plain insulting. Not everything falls along the simple line of a West vs non-Western dichotomy. Simplifying everything wrong with the world as being a byproduct of US foreign policy? Instead of a nuanced analysis recognising that in some cases, US foreign policy is only one part of a much bigger picture? That scarcely allows for any meaningful understanding of what is going on today. 

It is one thing to recognise that the US’ outsize influence means the reach of US imperialism today is considerably bigger- another to think imperialism, empire and all the other ideas attached to it are inherently American or Western concepts. Same thing goes for thinking everything wrong with the world today is only because of European imperialism. That, in East Asia, for example, serves to complete discount thousands and thousands of years of Chinese imperialism, or the drastic impact of Japanese imperialism, just to privilege European imperialism. This is just Westerncentrism dressed in the veneer of anti-colonial critique. A veneer-because that kind of analysis continues to centre on Western countries as being the only important characters on the stage of human history, as well as sometimes being accompanied by fetishisation of non-Western countries or the (ultimately colonialist) Noble Savage caricature.


Ok ok ok you know how in the most recent episode of doctor who, there was never really a monster, it was just Clara under the Doctor’s bed, and the Doctor pretty much created a fake monster to freak himself out?

I understand that completely, but that still doesn’t explain this:

Now I’m usually willing to believe it was just put in there to freak people out and by the end of the episode people just forget about it, but that’s not Steven Moffat’s style. He would not do that. 

Because what if they weren’t plot holes. What if it was this all along:

External image

Obviously in a different form of course, but think about it. It makes sense. Remember, in the episode it was in, the Midnight creature was never really destroyed. It was just put back at its home and ignored for the next few seasons. They left that idea open, just in case they want to bring it back later on. 

Personally, that’s what I would do. Because this was probably the scariest creature on Doctor Who for me. Don’t believe me? Well that’s fine because this is just a “what if” post. But here’s my reasoning.

Ok I know this one is a bit random but if I left it out, this post would look weird. But this is a response to what the Doctor asked, which was “If such a creature existed, what would you do?” (idk its not exact but its close enough) And it replied with the word “Listen.” So it’s listening? But isn’t that what the Midnight creature did too? Except the Midnight creature listened and repeated. Idk this isn’t my strongest point but it’s coming soon. Patience, young warlocks.

The thing under the blanket could have been the Midnight creature, except maybe at that point it wasn’t in human form, so we couldn’t see it. And am I right in assuming that the same thing under the blanket also turned off that TV in the children’s home? The Midnight creature also has the power to do that. I mean, if it can shut down a space ship, then it could probably turn off a TV. 

Now this is where it gets interesting. Remember, at this point they are at the end of the universe, and this is the only thing out there (other than The Doctor, Clara, and Orson.) The Midnight creature could have been the most powerful thing the Doctor has ever faced, and what else would survive to the end of the universe by hiding. And remember how in ‘Midnight’, the Midnight creature kept knocking on the ship before entering? Yep, the thing outside the door knocked heaps as well. Also, nothing should be able to survive outside of that ship. Except the Midnight creature because it had already shown its ability to withstand extreme conditions in 'Midnight’.

I dunno. This would be the perfect opportunity to bring back the Midnight creature, but they probably won’t. It just makes sense for it to be the Midnight creature. If you actually bothered to read this dribble, then thanks. I’m surprised. 

I read Smokey310/topftopf’s’ fanfiction series “Stupid boys talking and maybe some smut”  a while back and while it’s probably the best thing ever happening to me since this is the OT4 dream come reality & I’m hopeless when it comes to ponytail yams (fire emojis) as spicy side dish, imagination already did its job.
When I came across this picture, it was all over for me. Sorry. I’m burning, I’m so done with myself.  Please save me from future yams with his stupid tattoos and piercings and motorcycle and perfection.

I'm sorry to break it to you, but Harry has slept with a fan. They just hit it off as soon as they met and they even moved in together months after meeting. I know this might sound crazy, but Harry even has complementary tattoos w/ this fan. And it's not just one. They have a bunch of them. They've been together for 5 years and I'm pretty sure that Harry wants to settle down with this fan. The most recent thing I've heard is that they're probably engaged. I'm sorry but you just have to accept it

Most perfect ask ever

  • Righties/Tories: George Osborne is a merciful god who has single handedly revived the British Economy and vanished the nasty Lib Dems. What a wonderful budget. It is the most perfect thing ever created.
  • Lib Dems: Fuck you all.

I've had a half-baked theory for a while now that Steven was the closest thing Rose and Greg ever got to being able to fuse. I don't think that Steven was conceived like a human child, but I always had this idea that once Rose and Greg REALLY fell in love, he was the result of kind of a "half fusion" between them, which was different from other fusions bc it's a gem and a human. But should any of this be sound at all, it should be noted that Steven is a "perfect" fusion...

I like that idea too, it’s really sweet. Probably about the most comfortable that Greg would ever be in being directly involved in magical Gem happenings too ha.
