AHAHAHAHA IT JUST HIT ME

The fact that “The Trial” is airing on Memorial Day is kinda funny and bittersweet in itself.

Memorial Day is a day to remember those who died. In a WAR.

Could you imagine if there were actual flashbacks to the Gem War during the trial and they all took a moment to praise and remember Pink Dia- *SHOT*

Okay I’ll shut up now. uwu

Sorry I havent posted in forever, school happened and I’ve been experimenting with different art styles which i hope to post soon! So proud of the now pink donut boi! Hopefully I’ll get around to coloring this. Don’t forget to tag this as spoilers until the episode is out everywhere! Hope you enjoy!

Special: Memorial Day Bullet Prompt
  • Person A has been in the military for years now.
  • Person B has always waited, in faith and hope that A will come home.
  • No matter what, B will wait for their true love (A).
  • Eventually A gets to go home and B doesn’t know.
  • B answering the door in sweat pants and a hoodie with chocolate on their face and a tub of ice cream in their embrace.
  • The slow-mo spread of shock and delight spreading across B’s face when realizing it’s actually their A standing in the doorway.
  • The thud of the tub of ice cream and the “oof” from A when they’re tackled by B.
  • “Why are you in my sweatpants?”
  • “I missed you and I was watching Netflix…”

Okay but, imagine.

We all have that one toy that we’ve saved since we were children- you know the one.

The one that’s worn from all the times you’ve clutched it to your chest as you slept; the one that’s sitting somewhere in your bedroom still because you could never bring yourself to throw it out; that one stuffed animal that’s missing an eye from when your dog got to it or the toy car that’s lost a wheel from too many adventures across too rough ground.

You’ve spent the best and worst days of your life with that damn thing, running through open fields, knowing somehow that your simple little toy was more than just that, that it was special, that some day, you would need it.

It’s been years since you buried it away in your closet.

But today, you take it out.

Because today, you lost your mother to the cancer she had been battling for months.

Because today, you lost your job and your best friend never answered your call.

Because today, you need something special.

So you go home, curl up in bed and clutch your childhood toy close, tears tracking down your cheeks as you close your eyes and try to breathe.

And then it happens.

It just seems like a burst of imagination, something made up, one of those things that you hear about in stories.

But then it happens again, lightning behind your eyes slowly giving way to sunlight.

You open your eyes and your bedroom is still dark and dreary and you are still alone.

So you close them again and watch the memories unfold, clutching your special something closer, watching in your minds eye as you race across the dirt path, your toy held tightly in one hand as you throw yourself into your mothers arms- she had just gotten home from a weekend business trip, you remember that day. She brought you a little snow globe as a souvenir.

And, like a slideshow, the memories come and go, and you remember thinking that each and every one of those days, whether it be the picnic at the park with your family or the time your parents took you out for ice cream, was the happiest day of your life.

And when it all ends, and you open your eyes, you can breathe again, and the room doesn’t seem so dark and you don’t feel so alone.

You knew, of course, that you would need your special toy one day. You didn’t know why, but now you do.

That thing was with you through it all- a constant in the ever-changing universe.

And somehow, someway, it seemed to have remembered what you couldn’t, what was just fuzzy in your mind, old days that couldn’t matter now but somehow do.

Because your special toy, it’s given you back the happiest days of your life on the worst day of your life.

It doesn’t fix everything.

You’re still heartbroken, you’re still lonely, you’re still sad, but now you’re not alone.

Somehow, this simple little thing, it gave you a ray of sunshine, a little spot of happiness, of remembrance of better days, and now…now you know that you will be okay.

And, someday, you are.

anonymous asked:

why is it called "Memorial day"? is there something special with that day? *besides this su special xD*

Memorial Day is a federal holiday in the United States for remembering the people who died while serving in the country’s armed forces. (Thanks Google!)

Any advice for fans whose gemsonas were "debunked" by show canon? With the upcoming memorial day special I am a little concerned. 😧

My advice?

Don’t worry about it! 

It’s hard to design a gemsona who perfectly fits into canon because we’re still learning things about Gems, the Gem War, the Diamonds, Homeworld, etc. Don’t get discouraged if canon contradicts something important to your gemsona’s backstory! You’re not obligated to completely revamp your character if you don’t want to. Besides, not everyone’s gemsona adheres to canon! Some people’s gemsonas are Crystal Gems in the current show’s timeline and interact with Garnet / Amethyst / Pearl on a daily basis, some gemsonas give up their physical form to make half-human children like Rose, and some people’s gems use he/him pronouns. Just because your gemsona may not perfectly fit into canon, it doesn’t mean they’re badly designed! 

I offer the same advice to people worrying that their gemsona’s gem might become canon in the upcoming special. No matter what gems may become canon, your gemsona will still be unique despite having a gem already used on the show because it’s something you designed! I’ve seen some very cool Lapis Lazuli, Peridot, Jasper, and Sapphire gemsonas, some designed before and some after the gems became canon on the show! No matter what happens, your gem will be your character, one who’s unique with their own personality and story. Your gem becoming canon doesn’t erase any of that! If you want to change your gemsona’s gemstone, that’s alright too, but I wouldn’t worry about it.

For people who are still set on making their gemsona as canon as possible, I recommend keeping your gemsona’s background relatively fluid or vague so if we get HUGE new information regarding Gems / the Homeworld, it won’t mess up your gemsona’s backstory too much.
