ok so I was just thinking about the fact that eleven was wearing pink eyeshadow at the snowball and I started thinking wayyy too much about this.
so I mean maybe hopper got it for her but he obviously didn’t have any clue how to help her with it so I’m thinking she really wanted to look her best for this since she probably wouldn’t have another chance to see mike for a while so she had hopper go to melvad’s to buy this cheap little compact of pink eye shadow and when he was checking out joyce was like wtf and he explained and joyce thought it was super cute.
so then after joyce got done her shift she and hopper went out to buy a dress for el and then she went over to their house the night of the snowball to help el/jane get ready like did her hair and everything and hopper was super happy and was like wow my girls. and el was soooooo excited when she looked in the mirror and hopper was tearing up and joyce called him a big ol softie and now I’m crying goodbye
“You’re really gonna tell the Diamonds that you allowed a band of traitorous rebels to infiltrate a highly secure facility and escape from right under your careful watch? — Doesn’t sound like a wise thing to do, Holly Blue. So do yourself a favor and keep your mouth shut. That will be all.” -That will be All-
Just snow balling here but what if this is exactly what happened when Pink Diamond was shattered?
What if this is why no one knows what actually happened? Either someone was embarrassed to “allow” rebel/s through, close enough to shatter their Diamond, or they literally allowed them through?
Zircon says “where were her Agates?”
Pearl had no trouble putting Holly Blue in her place, so what if she’s either done it before or she knows about how HW agates work? Their pride- or fear of admitting failure, especially to their own Diamond- can be easily used to the CGs advantage. Or simply- agates aren’t actually typically as prideful as they seem. Perhaps that’s just the way they are supposed to act, and in reality, they are soft. I mean… this line seems SO rehearsed.
I would like to point out the way the Famethysts are with her. It’s almost like they HUMOR holly blue instead of actually fear her.
Juuuust snowballing here.
Update: I also just thought this. Zircon said along the lines, “why didn’t her sapphires predict the attack?”
Let’s review the moment Rose and Pearl took on Blue Diamond.
Some think this was before PDs shattering, others thing is was after. So let me point out a couple things.
1) if this takes place BEFORE the shattering, why was BD on Earth, and why was she checking the rebellion there instead of PD?
2) if this takes place AFTER the shattering, why were rose and pearl alone? How could Garnet say with certainty that Rose shattered PD out of necessity if she wasn’t apart of the rebellion at the time? It would not have been her place to speak on this matter, instead of say, Pearl who actually was already a crystal gem and by Roses side since the beginning of the revolt.
So now that that’s out of the way let’s look at what happened.
A sapphire was not already on earth with her Diamond. At the trial Zircon specifically said “Her sapphires”. I think that the reason BD sent for only one sapphire was. Cause of their rarity and it was too risky to already have a sapphire with her, and to send multiple sapphires at once- which leads me to believe the answer did actually take place AFTER PDs shattering.
But this raises more good questions.
How was Rose and Pearl able to appear, poof multiple gems, and has still expected to escape? What was there intended goal? Did they plan on poofing or shattering BD? If not for Ruby, would they really have been caught?
This could be a look into what happened the
day Pink Diamond was shattered, but- how did they get PD out of her palanquin?
Everyone takes note of Blue Pearls (how ever few, twice as telling) reactions throughout The Answer.
I suspect that both pink and blue pearl were supposed to be the inside gems. Though there is no way of telling for sure….
Blue Pearl seems like the type of Gem that would definitely be afraid of betraying her diamond- and she may even have a sort of attachment to her. And also, there is no way Blue Pearl could get BD out of her palanquin AFTER the CGs appear. So when was she supposed to? Was she afraid that sapphire might predict her movements?
If this is the case, how did PDs sapphires not foresee a betrayal? Or could one of her sapphires have been in on it as well? Maybe a particular sapphire who is now apart of a particular fluorite…? Find my post about this Here
It’s been well suggested in The Trial that Rose HAD to have help to shatter PD. How much help would she have needed? What was her plan with BD? Could she have thought she could get rid of the diamonds after shattering one of their own? Or did she think that Bismuth was right and shed have to shatter all of them? In which case, why did she keep Bismuth bubbled during this part of the war? Why would she look so thrilled and ready to fight face to face with BDs court, ready to… ready to what? Did she really think they would just leave her and earth alone after shattering one diamond and attacking another?
I'm watching S8 and even though Mulder's back it's not the same. I get that they're spending time on Doggett instead of just MSR because David was leaving but so many opportunities were missed for msr. So I wanted to ask for something with msr talking about the medallion that Scully gives Doggett in Alone. Because Mulder finds it I just got the feeling that he seemed a little hurt by that. Thank you! (and i know you're busy so pls don't feel rushed or even obligated if you don't like the idea)
Notes: Thanks for this, anon. This has always bothered me too.
The hospital parking lot was underground, a sickly grey hive
of cement that urged escape at every turn.
Mulder pulled the keys from the ignition as Scully peered out the window,
visually measuring the space between them and a mauve minivan.
“Will you be able to get out?”
“You might have to grease me up.” It was a pregnant belly joke, not a sexual
one, but the silence Mulder once would have filled with flirtation stung.
Instead, he dangled the keys from his hand, snapping them in
his palm, swinging them out once again. He
was either playing with an imaginary kitten or he was making a point.
Scully waited with her fingers on the door handle – chin
dipped, lips pursed, eyeballs forward.
The quicker she said it, the sooner she could get to the commissary’s
very decent chocolate pudding.
“I’m sorry,” she said, feeling the sincerity of it like a
tiny electric shock.
“Hm? What?” He was faking, and faking the faking, and
beneath who knew how many layers of fakery there were. Had he ever really wanted her? Had he just fallen into something, the heat
and convenience of her lithe and willing body (oh God, would it ever be that
again)? She had treated him as a
benevolent donor even as they shared their bodies, their French toast, their
two AM thoughts. She could not expect
him to love her and want her even as she carried his child, or because she carried his child, as other
men did. That wasn’t the deal they’d
“Oh, you mean this,” he said, holding up the keys.
There it was - shining, catching the unforgiving lights of
the parking lot - security lights – dutiful, indelicate. The eagle landing on the moon, planting its
clutching feet in that stunning and terrific spot, lured by beauty to a place
where nothing could sustain it.
!!!!! are any of those bois round?? + terrace (sorry if I spelled that wrong im on mobile & cant reference the post orz ) sounds soooo cute omg!!!!!
None of my rp characters are normally chubby, they’re all on the more muscular side actually (except for lunale and solero)
I do have a normally soft boy tho! he’s a part of my “food based characters” kingdom world
His name is Rose and he’s a lord of the kingdom and he’s based off a pink snowball dessert (he was originally based off a rose flavored dessert, that’s where he got his name). He’s a kindhearted boy who loves to spoil those around him but he can be a little pushy at times and since he’s a favorite of the prince not many can do much about him.
(Also thank you for saying Terrance sounds cute!! He’s a good boy and I’ll have to draw him sometime soon)
Customized my furbies 😍 the confetti, snowball and pink one are my brothers, the steam punk and black n white goddess are mine 💖🐰 we have an ever growing furby family. Customization isn’t complete yet tho. Still have to do the eyes 💕💖💕💖💕💖💕💖
I think Eureka knew she was going to have to quit and that’s why she went around the workroom and apologized to everyone she burnt bridges with.
That moment with Ru getting up to talk to the producers was obviously added for dramatic effect. Maybe the girls didn’t know what was about to happen, but I think it’s pretty evident that Eureka and the judges did, at the very least.
I’m glad Cynthia and Farrah were both safe because, honestly, both of their syncs were good, but good for different reasons. Cynthia’s was more dance based, Farrah’s was more sync based and focused on subtle movements and beats. In other words, if Cynthia was Britney choreo, Farrah was Fosse.
Alexis Michelle’s Kris Jenner was amazing. I didn’t mind her runway look because it reminded me of Streisand in “Funny Girl.” I love Shea, but I thought she was overpraised for her Black Chyna, which was kind of underwhelming, especially since most of the “character” was brought out by the song and lyrics rather than her actual performance.
Peppermint’s Britney was fantastic. Even though it wasn’t the role she wanted, she turned it out. On the runway, Michelle’s focus on her skirt seemed to steal attention away from her brilliant pink snowball covering, which was a cool adaptation of the runway theme. It reminded me of those sugary marshmallow treats. Honestly, she deserved to win this week.
I like Nina but, having worked with “pouters” before, I know how that kind of behavior can be toxic and lethal to group potential. So, I think she deserved to be in the bottom more than either Farrah or Cynthia.
How has no one made a “dog years” parallel gif set?!?! Mulder tells her over the pink snowball sparkler thing that he celebrates her birthday in dog years! In plus one he says he doesn’t think of her in dog years! Gah if I knew how to I would so do this.
Omg they should! Someone should also make a gif set of Mulder losing fights because he totally lost to his doppelgänger. Referring to him climbing out from under the book shelf once the doppelgänger is gone 😂
