Powerful is what you are (for my dear friend)

Even worn out by a thousand battles
This girl refuses to back away from the field
Her hand clinging around the bloodstained sword
Waiting for the next obstacle to overcome

In her big brown eyes the fire never dies
Even if the flame is only a tiny speck of light
Gusts of wind almost quieting the glow
Yet during the calm after the storm it builds itself up again

Never breaking
Always bruising
Never settling
Always surviving

everybody needs to know I have the strongest friend, thehappinessofunicorns


I love how this episode really let us see the real Rose Quartz. For the entire show, Rose had been portrayed as this radiant, perfect beauty who was absolutely perfect in everyone’s eyes. Though she is still always beautiful, she is shown as not being perfect all of the time.

You first see her face with eyes wide open and a huge, goofy grin (and even one hair out of place in the back) which is a huge difference from when we first see her in the broken photo, with eyes elegantly closed and hair completely immaculate.

Her hair even goes more untidy and We continue to see her quirkiness and hear her silly, “steven-esque” laugh and we see she’s a normal person…er…gem… (However that metaphor would work)

This is why I love Rose Quartz.
Because she shows that it’s ok to not be perfect, you are still beautiful with all of your quirks, appearance, weight and all!

P!nk’s reaction to the recent criticisms about her weight

“I can see that some of you are concerned about me from your comments about my weight. You’re referring to the pictures of me from last night’s cancer benefit that I attended to support my dear friend Dr. Maggie DiNome. She was given the Duke Award for her tireless efforts and stellar contributions to the eradication of cancer. But unfortunately, my weight seems much more important to some of you.”

“While I admit that that dress didn’t photograph as well as it did in my kitchen, I will also admit that I felt very pretty. In fact, I feel beautiful. So, my good and concerned peoples, please don’t worry about me. I’m not worried about me. And I’m not worried about you either:)… I am perfectly fine, perfectly happy, and my healthy, voluptuous and crazy strong body is having some much deserved time off. Thanks for your concern. Love, cheesecake.”
