opals for days

so in trk when ronan tries to drop opal off with aurora and he tells her to stay she curses at him and he says “watch your mouth around my mother” 

but like imagine opal cursing??? she looks like a tiny human child and she is adorable but ofc she’s also a product of ronan’s mind so 

  • opal coming running up to adam and ronan like “GUESS WHAT I FUCKING FOUND!” all cheerfully 
    • adam chokes, ronan glares
    • opal is indifferent 
    • “watch your fucking mouth”
    • you watch your fucking mouth” she tells him
    • adam laughs for 59902 years
  • the three of them having breakfast at the barns and opal saying “pass the fucking salt please this branch is too damn bland”
    • “watch your mouth around your fathers, sphincter” says ronan irritably
    • “should you be eating that?” asks adam
  • “kerah the fucking deer won’t eat out of my goddamn hand”
    • “I SWEAR TO GOD, KID”
    • “well i mean she did learn it from you, ronan”
    • “nobody fucking asked you, parrish”
  • ronan walks in on opal chewing on the toaster and just asks in a very faint voice “what the fuck are you doing?”
    • “this shit tastes fucking amazing” she answers
    • ronan wants to cry
    • “should you be eating that?” asks adam even as he laughs
  • “fuck” realizes ronan one day “i’ve become gansey”
    • “i like gansey” declares opal “even if he drives a piece of shit”
    • “you’re grounded” ronan tells her
    • “fuck you” she answers
    • “ADAM” yells ronan “DISCIPLINE YOUR DAUGHTER”
    • “should you really be eating that?” asks adam as opal chews on ronan’s car keys
    • “fuck” groans ronan and officially Gives Up On Life

“Opal’s Day Off” - Steven Universe #8

Now that things have calmed down a little after the Stevenbomb, here is my 4th guest comic for the Steven Universe comic from boomstudios!  This one definitely has to be my favorite out of the guest comics I’ve drawn.  I had a lot of fun with it from start to finish and I’m still thrilled I got to make an official comic featuring Opal!

I also had fun adding some extra little details to this comic, so see if you can spot them all!

St. Patrick’s Day with the Lynch Brothers

Declan decides to reinstate the Lynch family tradition of celebrating St. Patrick’s Day

o   Growing up this was Niall Lynch’s favorite holiday and the family went all out

o   Imagine young Ronan, Declan, and Matthew performing at local festivals

o   Kilts may or may not have been involved

o   Church was a must

Ronan takes Opal and Matthew up to Declan’s apartment in D.C.

o   They are so LOUD in the car

o   They fight and sing stupid songs and play car games

o   Ronan yells at them but he secretly loves it

Adam drives up from college. He’s never celebrated St. Patrick’s Day and he’s nervous/excited about the family reunion. Declan is intimidating af

o   But Declan’s totally cool and gives up his room for the “newlyweds” as he likes to call Ronan and Adam pretty much every chance he gets

o   Matthew and Opal camp out in the living room

o   Declan shares the guest room with his “housemate” (who turns out to be JIANG!! Ronan is shocked and keeps muttering to Adam about the “fucking plot twist”)

Family hijinks ensue

o   Seriously competitive Apples to Apples

o   Candy Land with Opal

o   A very late night game of poker after Opal goes to bed

o   Ronan and Declan are definitely pre-gaming; Adam and Jiang exchange mutual looks of resignation

St. Patrick’s Day arrives!!

o   Declan’s got this all planned out. First he gets them all to mass. Almost everyone sleeps through the majority of the service. Declan is very Annoyed

o   Irish Breakfast with Irish Breakfast Tea because ofc

o   Wardrobe: y’all know they were kitted out in all the green. Blue sent Ronan T-shirts for him and Adam to wear: Ronan’s says “Kiss Me I’m an Asshole” and Adam’s says “Pynch: Est. 2016”, both are in green, Ronan’s is a muscle tee; Adam is confused by his shirt. Declan further surprises everyone by wearing one of Niall’s kilts. Jiang says he looks very handsome and Declan Blushes so bad. Matthew is wearing green everything: pants, shirt, shoes, he even sprays temporary green color in his hair. Opal is wearing a super cute dress with an Irish flag pattern. Jiang is looking quite dapper with a white button-up and a green tie.

Next stop: the Parade. They stand outside forever and it’s cold so they’re just this huddle. Adam thoughtfully brought thermos of tea for them to share. Ronan brought a flask. Matthew brought pickle flavored Pringles. They are Good to Go

o   Somehow they get to the very front of the barricades lining the parade route. Ronan puts Opal on his shoulders anyways and she is delighted, having the time of her life. Adam takes a million pictures and sends them to Blue, Henry, and Gansey

Afterwards they go to one of the local Irish pubs and it is madness. They wait almost two hours for a table. Opal falls asleep on Ronan’s shoulder. Ronan’s flask is mysteriously not empty and he confesses that it’s a dream object and never runs dry. While they wait the boys tell Adam and Jiang about Niall and Aurora, about growing up at the Barns and some of the crazy legends their father would tell them about Ireland

The pub is well worth the wait. Everyone gets a different dish and they all end of sharing. Declan works some magic and gets them pitchers of Guinness (Matthew is not allowed to drink and he’s quite sulky about it)

There is live music and, after drinking a lot, Ronan gets it into his mind that he should join the group and play everyone a song?!!! Adam is dying of laughter and of course films the whole thing. Even sloshed Ronan is an impeccable musician and everyone wants him to keep playing so he does

Perhaps the most hilarious/unexpected moment is when Ronan and Declan join in the impromptu Riverdance dance off. Matthew can’t believe that these two drunken idiots are related to him. Jiang is deceased because Declan dancing in that kilt… Adam’s phone is running out of storage because Jesus Christ this has to be saved for posterity

Eventually they stagger back to the apartment. Ronan and Declan are singing The Rocky Road to Dublin at the top of their lungs the entire way; they keep making the song faster and faster until it’s just a bunch of loud, high-pitched slurring

Jiang helps Declan to bed, Adam gets Opal settled in for the night, Ronan finds his father’s guitar in Declan’s room and plays mournful Irish tunes until Adam makes him stop. Once they’re cuddled up in bed Ronan tells Adam more about Niall. They make plans to visit his hometown in Ireland

The next morning is Hangover Central but they all agree it was worth it

did anyone ever talk about how ‘Here Comes A Thought’ totally reminded them of tweek n craig? ESPECIALLY tweek since he does seem to try and find his inner peace sometimes!

I also love how everyone just knows that Craig calms Tweek down, it has to be 100% canon

i hope dis hasn’t been done before ANNND i might color this later…

opal trillion ring set by minimalvs

this swoon-worthy engagement ring-and-band set is hella unique - i’m digging the trillion-cut super-shiny opal and the delicate golden lacy band that matches oh so perfectly.

I’m already behind but here’s Monday’s Prompt for the RH Gemsona week, Homeworld Day!

Electra, aka, Beryllium Opal, serves/served under Blue Diamond. I’ve had a feeling that Blue Diamond didn’t really have much of a working class, and was more of a nobility sort of culture, so Beryllium provided electricity but still had to remain proper about things even with a Blue-collared job (EH? EH???) 


Also, I’m sure our Sapphire saved her quite a few times from being crushed due to her bad puns.
