pearl shadows

reasons generation 4 is my favorite pokemon gen:

-S I N N O H

-Seriously I could talk for ages about Sinnoh it’s my jam

-Champion Cynthia

-Cool evolutions for certain pokemon that greatly benefitted them (Weavile, Roserade, Togekiss)

-The legendaries and lore are super cool

-The underground.

-Gen 4 also brought the Gold/Silver remakes and they were SO GOOD

-Pokemon companions that followed you everywhere!

-Really nice remastered soundtrack!

-Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time/Darkness/Sky

-Seriously Sky is still one of my fave games and was the first to ever make me cry

-Two really good Ranger games

-Shadows of Almia was so good

-Guardian Signs was SO GOOD

-The music in all games mentioned was S O G O O D

-I know the soundfronts weren’t quite as advanced but dude. dude. the music was still amazing despite that limitation

-If Hoenn is the trumpet region then Sinnoh gets to be the piano region

-The Pokemon Mystery Dungeon music more like how to make me cry in three seconds

-The Ranger games have so many underappreciated tunes

(critical-topaz) ok you know that first page of text from the art and origins book you just Reblogged,, you might want to read that because im gonna screech

(image from this post)


in case you can’t read it, here’s what the page says:


Garnet is the newest member of the Crystal Gems. She is getting use to her new existence as a permanent fusion of Ruby and Sapphire. She’s thankful that (scribbled out stuff) she is safe from Homeworld’s persecution, living under Rose’s protection. Rose is fascinated by Garnet’s fusion made of love, rather than Homeworld’s usual purpose of fighting. Her curiosity gets the better of her and she asks Garnet, “Will you fuse with me?” Pearl watches from the shadows (more scribbled stuff)

Garnet hesitates. Her relationship as a fused Ruby and Sapphire is still so new, she doesn’t want to mess that up (more scribbled stuff). Garnet tells Rose that she’s going to need some time (Rose is totally chill with that). Pearl is super revealed at first until Garnet tells Rose to check in with her next week to see how she feels about it then. Pearl thinks that’s super shady.

Pearl is mad. Why wouldn’t she want to fuse with Rose? Rose is AWESOME. She confronts Garnet. Garnet admits she’s scared. Pearl suggests maybe if she and Rose were fused too it would be easier. Garnet doesn’t fully understand that logic but Pearl is being pushy about it. Garnet agrees and they all fuse, Rose, Pearl and Garnet. They make “A NEW QUARTZ”. 

But it’s totally weird and they unfuse immediately. maybe if Pearl had just chilled out this wouldn’t have been so uncomfortable. Oh well, maybe they’ll try again someday???

I’ve Never Seen Him Like This

Auma swallowed hard. She picked up the delicate object, both finely polished crystal lenses smashed. “Father Abbot’s glasses. Look, Martin.”

Blood rose in the Warriormouse’s eyes. Raging and roaring, he tried to tug free of Skipper and Auma, straining to climb over the battlements at his foe. “Touch one hair of their heads and I will slay you, scalescum! You and all your rabble, I will send you to Hellgates!”

Lask had never seen such ferocity in any creature. He realized that Romsca’s warning had not been an idle one: these Redwallers did indeed have warrior blood in their veins. [….]

Auma held Martin tight. He was still struggling, tears of helpless rage flowing openly down his cheeks, and she had to exert all her strength to hold him.

“Skipper let’s get him back down into the gatehouse,” she said. “We need to think this out calmly. Grab his footpaws, he has the power and wildness of a badger Lord. I’ve never seen Martin like this!”

- excerpt from the end of Chapter 18 of Pearls of Lutra

I’ve never fully gotten over the fact that Bloodwrath is an affliction. Bloodwrath isn’t something you want; it’s not dignified, nor is it intuitively helpful to the one who has it. Bloodwrath makes you forget who you are, where you are, and who your friends and allies are. Your energy becomes focused on one thing: the object of your rage. You become a danger to yourself and to those you mean to protect. Bloodwrath turns you into a beast of fury, one that champs at the bit, cursing and foaming at everything around you. Even your friends are taken aback by the change that comes over you. You become one worthy of fear.

It is a strange thing for a protagonist to have.

Soft Rose. 

All of this moving and adulting has really drained me of my creative energy! Ugh.. anywho… I enjoyed this look because it’s super soft and wearable. normally my makeup is extra intense- so this was a nice change. Also stay tuned for a special announcement later!!!! :D

The Look:


1) Prime eye with white eye shadow primer and follow up with applying a light coat of white shadow

***Tips*** Applying a white or skin tone colored shadow on the lid will help you blend your shadows more easily.

2) Apply “Cake” from the UD Alice Through the Looking Glass palette on the crease of the eye.

 3) To add depth, add a small amount of “Jezebel” from Juvia’s Place the Nubian II palette to the crease of the eye- focus this darker shadow more on the outer v portion of the crease.

4) Lightly dab “Luscious” from the Too Faced Sweet Peach palette on your lid using a flat shadow brush.

5) Using your finger, apply Nyx Ultra Pearl “Mania” Loose shadow on the center of the eye.

6) Apply liquid eyeliner to the top lid and pencil liner to the lower lid.

7)  Using a smudge brush, smudge “Jezebel” into your lower lash line.
