“Pain is a pesky part of being human, I’ve learned it feels like a stab wound to the heart, something I wish we could all do without, in our lives here. Pain is a sudden hurt that can’t be escaped. But then I have also learned that because of pain, I can feel the beauty, tenderness, and freedom of healing. Pain feels like a fast stab wound to the heart. But then healing feels like the wind against your face when you are spreading your wings and flying through the air! We may not have wings growing out of our backs, but healing is the closest thing that will give us that wind against our faces.”

Mi piaceva restare a letto per ore,
anche durante il giorno,
con le coperte tirate su fino al mento.
Si stava bene lì sotto,
non succedeva mai niente,
non c'era gente,
—  Charles Bukowski 

gon lived at the end of the chimera ant arc because killua loved him and he loved killua and i do not mean because killua picked him up and carried him all the way to safety or brought him back from the brink of death with a literal miracle. gon lived at that end of the war because killua made it in time. gon lived because he saw killua, and remembered for just a second that there was someone else. gon lived because he hesitated. gon lived because he didn’t drown in the dark alone because killua arrived to save him, literally glowing like light.

“I am glad we have not yet been able to reach the stars or inhabitable planets that dance about them. For they would in all probability be owned and divided by corporations and framed by industrial interests. Better they rest in distant tranquility, apart from our manufactured chaos.
Let generations to come that learn to embrace one another, with their scientists, artists and poets, be the ones that immerse in that abundance and future. For now it is best it remains out of humanity’s childlike hands in that big jar, light years away, marked “cookies.” There for that coming time when the only thing we need feed off of, is the endless discovery and beauty.”  

My views on the next Pink Stevenbomb

When I saw the news about the upcoming Stevenbomb, I couldn’t contain myself. This was really needed and the timing just feels right. I mean, don’t get me wrong, the Steven Nuke was extremely awesome, and those special monthly festive episodes were enjoyable too, but this was the right time to deliver something in between (a five episodes story arc). And hell, it seems like we’re gonna get something extraordinary. So let’s start.

Theory #1: Infamous Palanquin

The consensus after “Buddy’s Book” was that the palanquin definitely belonged either to Blue Diamond or Pink Diamond. Now, I guess this confirms the Pink Diamond’s route, which leaves room to a lot of possibilities.

What I would really really really love to happen is to get a flashback with this palanquin being the place where Rose shattered Pink Diamond or the moment when and the location where the Rebellion started. It could very well be narrated by Pearl, who was likely a witness (we have too many clues for her not to be Pink Diamond’s or White Diamond’s Pearl or a gift from the White Diamond to the Pink Diamond).

However, I think certain that the Palanquin was damaged, under attack or abandoned and maybe, it serves now as a memorial/grave for PD.

Theory #2: Jasper’s Hisbiscus

At this point, it’s not a stretch to think that Jasper could be redeemed (I mean, her VA recorded for Season 4) and I personally think it will start slowly, beginning it with this Stevenbomb. The flower hinted in the picture promo is the same flower Jasper wears on autographe from SSDC. I guess she’s wearing it in the memory of the Pink Diamond, but it can also be the first thing from Earth that Jasper will be impressed with.

Theory #3: Let’s kidnap the Crystal Gems

Something’s really fishy about the next episodes descriptions:

  • “Adventures in Light Distortion” – Steven and the Gems take off on a search and recovery mission. 
  • “Gem Heist” – The Gems try to pull off a heist. 
  • “That Will Be All” – Steven and the Gems make a daring escape! 

This screams infiltrating into a Homeworld ship and then getting kidnapped by the Homeworld Gems so bad, but I’d rather not go jumping into conclusions because I don’t want to be disappointed. This would be extremely awesome though. Can I even dare to stay that they go to Homeworld? I guess it’s too soon.

Other thoughts

  • Steven will find out about Pink Diamond’s Palanquin by going into Jasper’s or Pearl’s mind; I’d rather say Jasper only because we have these little hints
  • We’ll definitely see Pink Diamond’s full appearance
  • “The Zoo” is a serious episode; I doubt it’s about corrupted gems since that would be really insensitive, but it makes sense if the gems are kidnapped because of the parallels between a zoo and a jail
  • This bomb might represent the start of the endgame, possibly the beginning of the second war with Homeworld

Anyway, I’m dying to get some answers. I’m gonna be on full theorising mode until next time.


Go Forward With Courage

When you are in doubt, be still, and wait;
when doubt no longer exists for you, then go forward with courage.
So long as mists envelop you, be still;
be still until the sunlight pours through and dispels the mists
– as it surely will.
Then act with courage.

“I have a foreboding of an America in my children’s or grandchildren’s time – when the United States is a service and information economy; when nearly all the manufacturing industries have slipped away to other countries; when awesome technological powers are in the hands of a very few, and no one representing the public interest can even grasp the issues; when the people have lost the ability to set their own agendas or knowledgeably question those in authority; when, clutching our crystals and nervously consulting our horoscopes, our critical faculties in decline, unable to distinguish between what feels good and what’s true, we slide, almost without noticing, back into superstition and darkness…

The dumbing down of American is most evident in the slow decay of substantive content in the enormously influential media, the 30 second sound bites (now down to 10 seconds or less), lowest common denominator programming, credulous presentations on pseudoscience and superstition, but especially a kind of celebration of ignorance”
