B.D. Orgain House, Bastrop Texas (1888) by Bob Holler
Via Flickr:
This double-galleried Victorian residence was constructed in 1888 for Benjamin Darby Orgain (1843 - 1917), a prominent area banker, attorney, and civic leader. His wife Drucilla (Johnston) (d. 1931) was an assistant teacher in the local Colorado Institute. The exterior of their home features intricate detailing and fishscale shingling. The interior includes woodwork of pine, cherry, mahogany, and walnut. Orgain family members owned the house until 1947. Recorded as a Texas Historic Landmark in 1981

I can’t quite put my finger on why but it really bothers me that between the ally/lgbt community at schools, the first and often in my expiriance, only orgained event for pride week is a drag show.

Idk maybe it’s the way allies and non-lgbt see the queer community as represented by drag specifically, and drag in their eyes being less about subverting gender boundaries and more “ahh the gays being ostentatious again silly them”

Earth is a Threat to Homeworld

I get the impression that Earth is a significant threat (or at least a giant nuisance) in the eyes of Homeworld.

First, there’s this: Orgainic life seems to be powerful against Gems and their technology. Sadie poofed a gem with only a pointy stick. Steven escaped his cell on the Handcraft just because he wasn’t a gem. (read the link for more details on this from Kimmiecake’s Brain Scramble)

Now we hear this:

(notice how she took deeper notice when it was clearly Earth and not just any planet.)

“It’s full of life.”

Organic life…” [as if in disgust]


“I will take immense satisfaction in erasing that hideous rock off of our star maps! IS THAT CLEAR?”

Hideous rock? The same rock that was selected among the 9 that orbit this particular star as a candidate for a Homeworld colony? The same planet that originally had the potential for so many gem kindergartens, spires, and arenas?

No, it’s something on this rock that makes it hideous: ORGANIC LIFE.

Suppose the gems came across this solar system and found a place where intelligent life was already developing. It was far from a space faring race, but it would only be a matter of a couple millenia before they would start to stretch across space – Homeworld turf. Beyond that, these homo sapiens were also immune to some key parts gem combative technology. They would be hard to fight later on if they didn’t act.

What’s the solution? Conquer their planet. That didn’t work out, so plan B? Destroy it. Either way, the nuisance of organic life would be erased and the empire stretches further, unchallenged.
