This is actually a picture for @a-sleeping-flowers To draw a character from Overlord named ulbert alain odle. At first I tried to draw a scary Picture of him..But I don’t know what dynamic poses to draw. But Instead I added asriel and frisk in the picture. (I know she likes undertale too.)

The first season of Ninjago, Rise of the Serpentine, 13 episodes are dedicated to our main characters Kai, Cole, Jay, and Zane stopping ancient race of evil snakes from destroying the world from a bigger snake, while trying to deal with Lord Garmadon’s son, learning to get stronger on the way, and who is going to be the destined Green Ninja.
Eh, I don’t even know why I’m typing this, really, but with the upcoming episode on Memorial Day (a day to remember those who have fallen in war coughPINKcough), and all this Diamond Authority screen time, I’ve been thinking a lot more about Pink Diamond.
It seems that the Diamond Courts each represent different personalities or attributes, as well as their respective gems. Blue’s court is more intelligence-based and intimidatingly powerful. Aquamarine and Lapis are dainty and don’t look like much, yet hold control over something that gives them immense power. Sapphire is also small and level-headed, but has the gift of future sight. Yellow’s Court seems to be tech-savvy (Peridot knew a lot about gem tech, and also, of course, had the limb enhancements), much like the Diamond herself. Guessing that a Diamond’s Pearl, although much lower in social standing, is probably the closest, personality-wise, to the ones they serve, then you could see how the Diamonds compare with their Courts.
However, we obviously haven’t seen Pink’s Pearl. But, we do know at least a little about Rose Quartz, a warrior who was definitely high up in the hierarchy. If Rose was one of the closest to Pink (especially since the young Diamond probably didn’t create as many gems as the others had), then of course they’d share similar personality traits.
I’m expecting Pink Diamond to be the curious, outgoing, hyper Diamond of the four. Yellow is strong, Blue is calm, White is… well JUDGING FROM WHAT WE KNOW (WHICH ISN’T A LOT) PROBABLY REGAL AND IF OUR PEARL WAS HER’S THEN THERE COULD BE SOME MORE EVIDENCE FOR THAT BUT THAT’S FOR ANOTHER TIME, and Pink was the curious “little sister”, not yet trained to be a leader and not hardened to the universe yet.
The zoo also points to her being curious and finding the other worlds wonderful. She brings back these other species from her very first colony, species the other gems are probably disgusted by, and most likely treats them like pets. If they were her experiments or her little torture-creatures or something, the environment wouldn’t be as nice and sweet as it was. Pink could have been some sort of warped crazy-human lady, thinking she was doing these humans a favor and saving them to “play” with.
To be honest, if Pink did have a personality where she wanted to learn and explore, so much as to kidnap humans from her first colony to be her “pets” almost, then she probably wouldn’t have lasted long as a leader. She could’ve eventually brought the wrong thing into Homeworld, or ended becoming like Rose Quartz, falling in love with a planet so much as to she didn’t want to destroy it.
But, of course, Pink was also very evil, she couldn’t have been good. Like, she’s a Diamond, and all the Diamonds have to be evil shatterers, right? And even though she didn’t know what she was doing when she saved humans on Earth from what she thought was a doomed planet where they’d most likely die and gave them everything they’d want, albeit in captivity, but she probably talked to them and interacted with creatures everyone else wanted to kill-
I really like how none of the characters we know are completely good or evil, or able to be painted into either totally . The shades of gray all the characters are painted into make everything a lot more interesting.
I really, really want Pink to be a good character, in a sense, though. Mostly because everyone wants to make her evil to give Rose some redemption arc that would just make Rose less dimensional, but also because I like the idea of a “young” gem, a leader that hasn’t gone through what her Diamond sisterhood has, and has still retained some of that childlike-innocence. Her Court, and her, could’ve been playful, curious, wanting to challenge the norm, and that was her very downfall.
So I don’t really know why I spent an afternoon writing what is probably going to be revealed soon with pretty much no solid evidence, but, yeah! This has been done a lot and most people seem to be stuck between whether she’s an evil overlord or a sweet character. Like I said, I want to think of her a an enthusiastic, free-spirited young child, but with those same warped gem-morals.
HEY GUESS WHAT it’s a Metamorphers AU Trepan!!! this was actually a really cool exercise ‘cuz it got me thinking about how mnemosurgery works for the Metamorphers AU. Trepan here has injectors in both hands - one that’s a slightly older model where his arm was entirely replaced with the tool (it also doubles as a data storage unit/buffer against psychological and mental side effects), and one that’s a slightly newer “hidden” design that’s all subdermal implants and reconstruction.
also, some Overlord! I overdid the lips but I don’t care, I love them. also, you may be wondering: did I design Trepan entirely so I could draw stupid Overpan interactions??????
