There’s some difference in how Steven loves people/gems compared to how Rose loves people/gems.
“If I could begin to be half of what you think of me, I could do about anything.”
Steven clearly thinks highly of rose, but was she really that great? It seems the thought not.
“When I see the way you act, wondering when I’m coming back”
Steven wants to meet his mom
“I always thought I might be bad, now I’m sure that it’s true, ‘cause I think you’re so good, and I’m nothing like you.”
Rose shattered pink diamond, which by many, including Steven, is seen as a bad thing, and could’ve easily made Rose think she was a bad gem. She’s sure that it’s true by looking at the morals of Steven, that no gem should be shattered, no matter what.
“Look at you go. I just adore you.”
Steven is getting better at using his powers and is accomplishing amazing things, things that Rose couldn’t possibly do, like bubble the cluster.
“I wish that I knew what makes you think I’m so special.”
Again, Rose doesn’t think very highly of herself, maybe because of the fact that she shattered Pink Diamond.
“If I could begin to do something that does right by you, I would do about anything.”
Rose wants to be seen as a good gem in her son’s eyes, but how could that be if Steven believes gems should not be shattered and Rose shattered one.
“When I see the way you look, shaken by how long it took”
I’m still not sure what it was that took so long to happen. Does Rose come back? Is it referring to Steven learning about Pink Diamond? Is it something else? I don’t know.
“You know what? I don’t necessarily want to shed my Ygritte character. I absolutely love her; I really, really, really did love her. She holds a special place in my heart. I think that’s an obstacle that any actor who’s fortunate enough to work comes across; it’s really making sure that you play characters that vary, and that you’re able to show your range, and do something that’s not predictable.” (Rose Leslie photographed by Sophia Evans for The Guardian)
So I want to thank everyone who has followed me, reblogged, and liked all because of my first steven universe cats. The first post got to 10,500ish notes, which is really crazy to think about! I have more than doubled my followers, with this blog now approaching 200 followers! To think this all happened over some cute cats is inconceivable.
I will be going back and doing some different stuff than the cats for a little while. I have a really big art piece coming out soon. So, be on the lookout for that! Again, thanks so much peps!
So awhile ago @reaill let me line and color some of her drawings of the gems in jackets, now almost a year later she let me do a few more! Thanks so much I had a lot of fun doing these! (click on them to get a better look)
ok ive been wanting to do this for a while but i was too lazy and i wasnt feeling it but now i am so here we go this is gonna be really long. these are some of my faves (also theres a couple that i havent read that im gonna read soon lmao) also some of these are ONLY smut ok. theres like +60 something fics probably lmao
I know this isn’t very original but I couldn’t care less right now, I really needed to something to unblock that art block. I always wanted to do a Mucha style kind of series, and opted to do it with the Doctor’s (recent) companions. Next will be Amy, River and Clara :)
EDIT: I finished part 2! And tried to fix those a bit…
Please like, reblog, share. I really don’t like to ask for help like this, but my husband just lost his job. This is our only source of income right now, and I’m panicking a fair amount. Please support my fun handmade jewelry business while we get our lives back in order, if you can. I don’t want donations, I just want to make you pretty things. It makes me happy to work, so give me work to do :) Lots of love to you all <3 <3 <3

How different would this episode have been if Bismuth had met Connie and found out she was the one who uses Rose’s sword… And then CONNIE is the one who gets offered the Breaking Point?
Like I’m not saying Connie would accept it, but I do think she’d have to think about it SUPER HARD. Especially if Bismuth pulls the “How are you gonna protect Steven if you aren’t willing to do EVERYTHING you can?“ card.
And like, if she does refuse like… Bismuth only really flips out when she thinks Steven is really Rose, so like… How even would Bismuth react to that?
(I secretly want @elexuscal to do a What If chapter of Xenopology like this… Except it’s not a secret now because I just said it…)
Fic — Spring Conditions — AU Ten/Rose — Chapter 23/?
Summary:AU Ten/Rose. John Smith is desperate to impress Jeanne Poisson - the girl of his dreams - by learning to ski, but his ski lessons at an out-of-the-way ski lodge change things in ways he never could have expected.
Thank you also to betababe fadewithfury for drawing a brand new lovely piece of fanart for last chapter here. I’m sorry for the delay with this–since the last chapter was posted, I graduated from pharmacy school, and had to both study for (and pass!!) my board exams so that I could officially start work as a licensed pharmacist. There were 2 board exams and this was a lot of pressure… ergo the massive delay. Thanks so much for your patience!!
So now we know that Pearls are custom-made servants and are considered pretty little ‘accessories’ for high-class gems. We also know that Pearl’s feelings for Rose weren’t exactly one-sided.
What I really want to know now is whether Rose doing things like fusing with ‘her’ Pearl was something taboo in gem culture. Or worse: if such a thing was common because Pearls are considered playthings for their owners…
‘With my short existence I can make a difference You’d do it for her, I’ll do it for him - I’ll do it for you.’
‘Sworn to the Sword’ ripped my heart out, and now I really want to see more development of Pearl-Connie relationship arc, leading up to a point where they care for one another deeply - and fight side by side in battle as friends and equals.
Connie would stop feeling so inadequate in comparison to the gems and Pearl would start to feel love and respect for humans as opposed to fighting for Rose’s sake.
(Also, CONNIE HAS ROSE’S SWORD IN THE OPENING CREDITS, THIS IS GOING TO COME UP AT SOME POINT *flails*)
So I finished Undertale and it rose really high into my most memorable game and is now one of my favorites. Undertale is more of a of a psychological game, similar to OFF but I wanted to showcase some of my favorite rpg games (most are horror/psychological horror) Playing Undertale gave me a nostalgic vibe of Penpal but was it’s own unique and by far the game of the year. If you haven’t played it yet, please do, don’t just watch a playthrough but experience it yourself! I’m going to head into a few more runs eventually. Here are the other games in a master post drawn above in order from left to right:
Misao, Undertale, Ib, The Witch’s House (top), Yume Nikki, The Crooked Man (top), Mad Father, OFF and Lisa (my personal favorite)
While these games are of different genres, they’re all rpg maker and my absolute favorites
- peridot knows she wanted to celebrate
- the gems are awesome moms for saying they wanted to celebrate Steven’s progress
- “STEVEN YOU’RE 14?!” - when Connie was the entire fandom
- ok so like the gems Steven’s body doesn’t really age. But his human half definitely does, it’s just slowed down I guess / effected by how Steven feels
- Greg was 22 when he met Rose and the gems !!! And now he’s at least 36
- Amethyst saying she can’t hold the pose forever was good foreshadowing
- Garnet telling Steven that his change looks good, was nice of her to do as a mom
- “Steven your neck..YOU HAVE ONE” - when Amethyst was the entire fandom
- Pearl is good with kids (saying good job to Connie / playing on her team) she’s just not good with babies lol
- “if you hit you get it” Pearl you brat
- hahaha Estelle reference
- Pearl and Amethyst dancing SOOOOOO CUTE
- GARNET WHY DO YOU ALSO SHIP CONNIE AND STEVEN
- Garnet so proud her little plan worked
- ok I was so mad that Steven was acting weird with Connie until I realized he was actively trying to keep that form all day, so he probably couldn’t pay attention to much
- when Steven turned around and got caught I laughed SO hard at their expressions
- STEVEN THINKS CONNIE IS GONNA BECOME PRESIDENT AND HE’S GONNA MARRY HER, TWO THINGS I 100% SEE HAPPENING
- yes Amethyst ! She is usually my least favorite character, but I was so proud of her for being mature and telling Steven to stop. She should have told the other gems about what he was doing though
- CONNIE KNOWS THEY’RE GONNA GROW UP TOGETHER
- BABY STEVEN - honestly can he have a normal birthday
- HAHA Pearl was like NO THANKS
- Garnet tried that cutie
- Greg the real mvp parent
- Connie you adorable friend you
- “HE’S REVERTED BACK TO A ZYGOTE” LOL
- Connie’s a real friend wow
- CONNIE AND STEVEN FOREVERRR
- Greg and the gems reacting positively to his facial hair - good parents
- Amethyst what the crap was that comment
Ok so to be honest, not one of my favorite episodes. The whole “bad stuff happens on Steven’s birthday” isn’t really my thing. However, Connie is adorable as heck and I’m really glad Steven has her in his life.
WHY PERIDOT DIDN’T MEET CONNIE OR GREG IS BEYOND ME AND TERRIBLY UPSETTING. Anyways, I’m kind of glad Steven stays his cute, adorable self.
