Hello my lovely marshmallows!! I know it’s been a really, REALLY long time since I last posted anything in this blog. And I want to be honest with you all because there’s still so many that stayed with me even if I’m inactive. So, apart from losing some interest in the Marvel fandom, real life has just kept me so busy that I almost forgot what it was to have fun. Unfortunately, I have to say I don’t think I’ll return to this blog but I have no intention of deleting it because I met so many wonderful people through my Marvel days and I sincerely wish that I can still talk with them. Who knows, maybe one day I’ll feel like coming back!
If any of you are interested, I’ve got a new blog called allegoriesandcarpenoctem in which I blog about my latest obsession, that being Hannibal… among other random things. Yes, I fell into that hole, and I’d love to see if there’s any fellow Fannibals out there who are still willing to put up with my crappy edits and rants. I’ll be looking forward to that and for those people that I used to hang out with here, I’m so sorry I disappeared like that but I want you to know that I’m ok now, I’ve got my bearings and I hope that you’re all still having a great time. Stay healthy and insane, marshmallows!!
Ok so I know we’re all super focused on s4 right now (as we rightly should be) but I just wanted to announce that I’m in the beginning stages of what I believe will be quite a fun and feelsy multi chapter AU fic for sherlolly. Credit to the consulting writer @artbylexie for giving me this idea! ;)) No details for now, but I’ll give this one hint…
“There could have never been two hearts so open, no tastes so similar, no feelings so in unison, no countenances so beloved. Now they were as strangers; nay, worse than strangers, for they could never become acquainted. It was a perpetual estrangement.” -Jane Austen

I had wondered how the Gems that had served under Pink Diamond before the rebellion that happened to survive the war would be treated on present day Homeworld. Part of me had thought that part of Jasper’s mentality of being so constantly desperate to prove herself might have come from being treated poorly because the Diamond she had been made for no longer existed.
Clearly after ‘Back to the Moon’ that idea was blown out of the water- she seems to be revered as a legend and a war hero, at least by the Ruby Squad.
Which begs the question, if Jasper was so well respected on Homeworld, why did she accept a mission as an escort for Peridot to a planet they thought had been abandoned? The entire time they were on the hand ship, she made it obvious she thought all of it was beneath her.
Assuming she had any choice in the matter, why wouldn’t she go for something more high caliber?
Because she had to know once and for all that Rose Quartz and the remaining Crystal Gems had been destroyed. If there was even the slightest chance that they were still alive, she had to end that. She had to end the gem that had destroyed her colony, her planet, and most importantly of all:
While that motive would have been understandable, I don’t think Yellow Diamond would have been willing to spare her for a vengeance mission. Especially if we assume what Peridot said about waning gem production and resources. But Jasper? As messed up as she is, she’s not stupid. Her own mind got the best of her in the end, but when she’s thinking clearly, I have no doubt she knows how to get what she wants. And she wants revenge.
Which begs the question: How much do Homeworld Gems know about the details of when happened?
Jasper clearly didn’t seem to know that the Diamonds caused the great corruption. It may be that it’s simply not common knowledge that this is even an ability they have. Which makes sense if you think about it. If they ever were to need a weapon of mass destruction against their own people again in the future, it only makes sense that they would keep it a secret.
We know they did it once. And while it seems like war stories have certainly been passed down, it doesn’t seem like Eyeball, who fought in the war for Earth herself, seemed very clear on the details. Which I think is pretty common, but even 5,700 years later the truth seems difficult to find- which is also, quite unfortunately, all too common. Because all too often, history is written by the victors, or at the very least those in power. And Earth is so very far removed from Homeworld.
But we’re coming to find that the Diamonds weren’t the only ones who hid things from their troops. For every bit of information we’re given, 10 more questions pop up in their place.
also fun fact for those who think shidge is pedophilia: if shiro is 25 then sheith is also pedophilia and since that’s supported by the actors and creators themselves i guess the whole voltron crew are pedophiles by your logic!!!! : ) guess you’ll just have to leave the voltron fandom forever and let us filthy shippers ship in peace
