planet sprout

10

THE PLANTS IN Craig Burrows’ photos look like something plucked from an alien planet, sprouting wild shades of violet, pink and green. But the plants, and the colors are real.

It’s the result of a cool trick of nature. All plants reflect light. Leaves reflect green, and flowers reflect red, or yellow, or whatever. But plants also fluoresce, which means when they absorb ultraviolet light, they emit longer wavelengths visible to the human eye. It’s the same thing that happens with a black-light poster.

White Diamond Theory - Steven Universe Wanted - Who is White Diamond?

Okay. So I don’t normally do theories. Like at all. But this I couldn’t keep to myself because I find it super fascinating. I might do a vid on it later, but for now I’m just going to post this.


**Note: If someone else has also mentioned this theory, I’d love to know what they think and their supported reasons, too! I love the SU fandom!**


Wanted Steven Universe Special

Okay, so there has been a lot of different things that are answered (like how lion came to be) but this just gave us more questions (Did one of the Diamonds SHATTER Pink?).

The one thing I think it might have hinted at was who or what White Diamond is. 

So rather than keep you in suspense, I’m going to just come out with it as I want to get to the supporting points. 





Everyone…White Diamond.

This was in the title of Off Colors then quickly pans down to start the episode. 

Wait. Shy…isn’t this a just a building? A temple to White Diamond.

No. I don’t think so, at least in regards to this theory. 

The Diamonds and the Diamond Authority are the rulers of the Gems. However, I think that White Diamond is in fact HOME WORLD. Or at least somehow apart of Homeworld. 

I know it sounds crazy but there are a lot of things to support this. 

Reasons why I think White Diamond is Homeworld. 

Size.
The Diamonds are collectively the largest Gems we have seen that are SINGULAR Gems. Only when most Gems fuse do they grow in size. However, both Yellow and Blue are significantly larger than other Gems. Safe to say, that the most important Gem of them all, aka White Diamond, would be equally, if not, larger. So she can conceivably be that large.

Lack of Information.
There is very little information about White Diamond. Gems barely talk about her, if at all (actually). So how is this relate to that? The other Diamonds are referenced pretty regularly, even Pink Diamond, and thus more accessible than White Diamond. Gems don’t really reference White Diamond (in fact, I think that White Diamond was coined by fans in the obvious, we saw another Diamond on the Moon Base mural and the Diamond Authority emblem has a representation of White Diamond), because they never talk to or interact WITH her. 

During the episode, The Trial, the way the Blue Zircon addressed the Diamonds (with the theory that one of the Diamonds might have shattered Pink) sounded like only those two Diamonds existed. They didn’t bother waiting for White Diamond as well. 

Our Own Mythos and other Human Concepts.
So this in relation (and probably one of my more stronger points to this theory), on the factor that WE have similar mythos and equal beings similar to White Diamond. Think about Gaia or Mother Earth (Mother Nature) from Greek mythology. She is the personified version of Earth. She is considered to be a creator and nature itself. I think White Diamond is the Gaia of Homeworld. I also think, that like Gaia, White Diamond gave “birth” to the Diamond Authority. I don’t think there is a kindergarten that the diamonds came from. Possibly, White Diamond tore a piece of herself or somehow gave birth to the Diamonds who then created Gems, like Gaia birthing the Titans/Gods, and then those entities creating creatures in their likeness and (by the nature of Homeworld) for their needs. 

This also ties into my reference for the deities from Dungeons and Dragons. So, I’m a crazy geek, but the deity system in D&D gives the gods a level in terms of their god powers. The highest is level 20. There is ONLY ONE god that is above that at level 21. This god is general considered the one of nature and is considered Neutral to the truest sense (AKA neither good or bad, lawful or chaotic). 

Additionally, in the Moon Base mural, is White Diamond is cradling Homeworld with both hands.

It can be argued that she’s cradling Homeworld in an oppressive notion. But also look at the place of Homeworld. It’s the only one from the murals that is located like a womb location, as a form of symbolic meaning that White Diamond is the Mother of Gems. (So this is more of a reference for us versus the Gems history themselves. 




>>> MINI SIDE-THEORY ON DIAMOND PERSONALITIES Likewise, if you see Pink Diamond’s world location of Earth, she is the only Diamond holding her planet above her. Maybe stating that Pink Diamond was, in fact, empathetic to humans and considered humans as great beings like Rose thought. Blue Diamond is holding one of her planets very close and almost in a caring nature, and even looking at her planet. However, she’s LOOKING down on her planet, so her sense of superiority over her charges, much like a farmer over sheep. Yellow Diamond is holding two planets in a sense of balance. You would assume that she is the more justice driven over Blue, however, if you look at where SHE is looking, she is not LOOKING at the planets in her hands at all. She is looking and holding her head distinctively up, like holding her nose up in a superior fashion. This might reference how Peridot thought her Diamond was just and logical, but realized she wasn’t.<<<



Furthermore, we have reference of creatures where planets/life is sprouted from such as the World/Cosmic Turtle. And Terry Pratchett’s Discworld has a similar distinction.


Ending Thoughts.

While I think that White Diamond is embodiment of Homeworld, I don’t think she doesn’t have a physical existence. She might even make an appearance and talk to Steven. Personally, it would make for bad TV if she didn’t make an appearance. She might even be dormant, which would explain the reason why she hasn’t made another Diamond. Or something might be wrong with her, like an illness. She might be so reclusive and closed off, that only the Diamonds speak to her. 




Well. That’s it. You can think about is as you wish. You can send me Asks or answer to this post so we can all start a discussion on this too. I’d love to know what you think of my little theory about White Diamond.

“List some ways to include vegetables in the diet”


gee i don’t know. maybe you should try FUCKING EATING THEM FOR BREAKFAST LUNCH AND DINNER. LETS NOT FORGET CHRISTMAS, EASTER, VALENTINES DAY, ST PATRICK’S DAY, AND HALLOWEEN. WHY NOT EVERYDAY. VEGETABLES ALL THE TIME. BROCCOLI TOOTHPASTE, CARROT HAIRBRUSHES, CAULIFLOWER SHOES. WHY STOP THERE? WHY NOT MAKE CARS OUT OF VEGETABLES? HOUSES? CRUISE SHIPS? SPACESHUTTLES? WHY NOT MAKE VEGETABLE PEOPLE? A VEGETABLE PLANET? LETTUCE METEORS?  BRUSSEL SPROUT ROCKS? WE CAN REPLACE THE MOON WITH A TURNIP. THERE IS NO END TO THE VEGETABLE AGE. EVERYBODY IS A FUCKING VEGETABLE. POATOES, CARROTS, SPINACH, BRUSSEL SPROUTS? IT DOESENT STOP. 

and that is some ways vegetables can be included in the diet.

This Is Big: Scientists Just Found Earth’s First-Cousin

Right now, 500 light years away from Earth, there’s a planet that looks a lot like our own. It is bathed in dim orangeish light, which at high noon is only as bright as the golden hour before sunset back home. 

NASA scientists are calling the planet Kepler-186f, and it’s unlike anything they’ve found. The big news: Kepler-186f is the closest relative to the Earth that researchers have discovered. 

It’s the first Earth-sized planet in the habitable zone of another star—the sweet spot between too-hot Mercury-like planets and too-cold Neptunes— and it is likely to give scientists their first real opportunity to seek life elsewhere in the universe. “It’s no longer in the realm of science fiction,” said Elisa Quintana, a researcher at the SETI Institute. 

But if there is indeed life on Kepler-186f, it may not look like what we have here. Given the redder wavelengths of light on the planet, vegetation there would sprout in hues of yellow and orange instead of green.

If theoretically Louis and Nick did TXF you would all have to unfollow me I would literally never stop screaming I would be The Single Most Embarrassing Extra Motherfucker on the entire planet I would sprout wings and fly around the earth three times just to relieve some of the energy id get from Louis Tomlinson and Nick Grimshaw being on the same TV show
