  So it wasn’t quite the ocean… But given the geography of the area, it was about as close as they could get.

  The bat removed her hands from the vixen’s eyes with a small smirk, watching the girl’s ears perk and face brighten upon seeing the small sandy beach. Striding over to a lost-and-found towel, Rouge picked up a hibiscus flower she’d left there when she went to escort her date back.

  YOᑌᖇ ᖴIᖇST ᖴᒪOᗯᕮᖇ Sᕮᕮᗰᕮᗪ TO ᗷᕮ ᗯIᒪTIᑎG, she said, presenting the pink blossom to the girl. Rio smiled and took it in her hands.

  Thank you, Rouge. …Did you steal it?

  The spy couldn’t help but snort with laughter. ᑎO. ᗯᕼY? ᗯOᑌᒪᗪ YOᑌ ᑭᖇᕮᖴᕮᖇ Iᖴ I ᗪIᗪ?

  Ehh… the islander hummed thoughtfully, twirling it slightly between her fingers. It’d be kind of romantic.

  That got the thief to laugh, high-pitched and increasing in volume as she pressed a hand against her chest to try and calm herself and her flushing cheeks. Even Rio joined in on the chuckles, tail tip beginning to wag as she smiled brightly.

  ᗩᕼᕼ, ᗩᒪᖇIGᕼT, I ᗩᗰ ᗩᗯᗩᖇᕮ ᖴOᖇ ᑎᕮ᙭T TIᗰᕮ, ᕼᗩᕼᗩ! ᗩᕼ, ᗰᗩY I?

  The vixen’s own muzzle brightened in color, nodding and handing the hibiscus back to Rouge. Stepping forwards, the bat gently pulled out the withering one from Rio’s fur and gently thread the new one through… before smirking and throwing her hands down to her date’s sides, running her fingers through the islander’s black fur and earning a squeal in response.

  “Rouge!” Rio cried in laughter as the bat laughed herself and jumped several paces backwards, sticking her tongue out playfully. It took no time for the fox to dart forwards, chasing the laughing spy through the waves and sand before finally managing to tackle her to the ground.


OMG!!! I think I finally solve the mistery of the flowers. People tried to understand the meaning of the hibiscus as a flower itself but I was thinking that only two gems names were revealed in the series:Nephrite and Carmelian.
If centipeedle is a nephrite accourding with some fans, how about carnelian you will ask? Well, the answer is in the poster.
Look closely, Greg and Steven have Roses, all we know they are a Rose Quartz representation because is someone so cherrized for them. Now, pay attention in jasper hibiscus, A CARNELIAN HIBISCUS, accourding to peridot, carmelian is from beta kindergarten, JASPERS SISTER, how about if they were close and somehow carnelian was shattered making jasper to feel guilty and probably she looked like amethyst and thats why she wanted to shatter her to make the pain dissapear.

Probably carnelian was pride to be a runt and wanted to be free and protect the earth and thats probably why jasper would be part of the crystal gems, because she will finally understand how to be happy not matter her origins and will realize that the earth can set you free.

….and also I think Ashly Burch will voice her.

Life is Strange Theory: Butterfly part 2 (Tattoo)

Previously, we talked about butterfly as Myth and Folklore and also about butterfly effect. Now, let’s talk about the tattoo. I’ll Analyze the Tattoo aspects and meaning in this part. I might sound totally obsessed. But yeah, I do! so I tend to over-research things. Well at least I make this for FYI -ish thing. WARNING: THIS IS REALLY A LONG POST.

In the tattoo culture however, they have their own meaning and their cultural meaning specifically about butterfly as a tattoo. As a tattoo, butterfly life cycle can be translated as:

  • Egg (beginning/birth)
  • Larva (dependence/socialization)
  • Caterpillar (independence/awareness)
  • Chrysalis (withdrawal/death to a singular way of being)
  • Butterfly (emergence/illumination/awakening/evolution into a new phase of life)

Hi mak, I hope you're having a sweet day! I was wondering, do you know if there is any significance to the flowers on Eto's scarf in the anime?

So, the flowers are crudely drawn and hard to identify in the anime, but she also has flowers on her scarf in the manga, and they’re visible the first time she appears in chapter 54:

And they’re easier to see later on, during the Kanou lab raid:

The flowers are hibiscus.

There are a lot of meanings associated with hibiscus, including “gentle” in hanakotoba. Which makes it an interesting choice for Eto.
