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!
I heard a theory that the diamonds didn’t have powers, or that they’re were weak and not as powerful as they come off that’s why they always had lower ranking gems do their biding…….. Well I guess yellow diamond cleared that up for us. ✊🏽⚡️
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.
Any advice for fans whose gemsonas were "debunked" by show canon? With the upcoming memorial day special I am a little concerned. 😧
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.
[22may17] 207\365: most of the time i’m not able to create beautiful memories of special days. might be because i really lack the multi tasking ability. can’t enjoy something and reflect upon it at the same time. mine is an ancient brain.
