roasting marshmallow

Famethyst Gem Room

Headcanons:

  • Waterfalls and calming spots similar to the ones in the human zoo.
  • Junk piles everywhere.
  • Pearl fainted at the sight of the junk piles.
  • NO Holly Blues ALLOWED” sign on the back of the door.
  • Lots of bushes and trees with purple fruit.
  • Huge crystals grow out of the ground along with giant geode caves similar to the ones on Mask Island.
  • They couldn’t possibly fit symbols of each of their gems on one door, so they just wrote “FAMETHYST” on it.
  • Gazebo with marble pillars and hammocks underneath when anyone needs a break.
  • “I don’t remember bringin’ a jetpack in here.”
  • Colorful fire pits for roasting marshmallows.
  • Colorful hot tubs, too.

End a story any damn way you please. Make it angsty as hell, sit back and roast marshmallows over the flames! It's your tale we're just sitting here listening to it. Don't let people get you down! Also your work is amazing and it always makes me smile.

Thanks, Nonny! I’m not upset at all; it was just funny to see all the “you can’t just end it like that!” and “where’s the rest?!” and “give me more!” comments. I’m glad people are enjoying my writing because I love doing it, but I do it for fun (or coffee) so sometimes a soft reminder is necessary. Thank you so much for your sweet comment. Kiss kiss! <3

orange is such an underrated color: it’s watching sunsets and sunrises from your car with your best friend. it’s tangy, sweet fruit like tangerines, peaches, and melon. it’s friends sitting around a campfire under the stars, roasting marshmallows and telling ghost stories. it’s warm pumpkin pie and spending time with family at thanksgiving and fall leaves that dance across the street when a cool wind blows. it’s marigolds and lilies that bloom during the spring. it’s warm and fun and loving, exuding energy and ambition with every shade.   

cute summer date ideas:
-having a picnic in the park
-going star gazing at the observatory
-staying home and ordering take out bc it’s too hot outside
-cute plant shopping
-staying in a small town and exploring the little shops and cute restaurants
-going antique shopping
-camping beside a lake and going swimming as the sun rises
-roasting marshmallows on a fire
-cuddling under the stars
-enjoying each other’s company

“Garnet likes to eat sometimes”

In “Keystone Motel,” Greg had the following quote:

However, we have NO EVIDENCE in the show that Garnet likes to eat (as of the day I’m posting this in April 2017). In fact, literally every time she’s presented with food, she doesn’t interact with it or eat it, and never acts like she cares about it. Pearl makes a big deal about not eating, but Garnet’s eaten in the show as often as she has: ZERO TIMES.

In “Together Breakfast,” she helps make the Together Breakfast, but seems uninterested in it. (Granted, nobody else eats it either.)

In “So Many Birthdays,” she doesn’t care about the birthday food.

In “Beach Party,” Garnet sits in front of an untouched hot dog and comments that they don’t need to eat.

In “Warp Tour,” she bakes cookies but has no intention of eating them herself. They were intended for Steven, but Amethyst eats them.

In “Bismuth,” Pearl doesn’t bother to get a plate, but everyone else has pizza, and Garnet alone isn’t eating it.

And in “Gem Harvest,” Garnet doesn’t partake at the feast.

The closest we get to Garnet eating something in the show is from a scene in “Secret Team,” when it’s strongly implied that she drinks a sugary soda drink with Steven. When she arrives at Fish Stew Pizza, Steven has ordered drinks for them. You can see Steven has sipped some of his while Garnet’s is full.

Then she picks up the cup like she’s going to drink from it, though you don’t actually see her do it.

And then you see her set it down, with the liquid in it diminished. She probably drank the soda.

Though the sodas are back to the levels they were at before the next time we cut to a side scene of them, so who knows. There was also another time she ALMOST ate, in “Back to the Barn.” She was about to eat popcorn:

And then she literally shook her head and didn’t eat it, like she’s trolling all of us who want to see if she eats.

HOWEVER.

Garnet canonically eats multiple times … IN THE COMICS.

In “Doppelganger,” a short in the original comic run Steven Universe #4, Garnet eats a double-scoop ice cream cone while hanging out with Steven.

In Steven Universe and the Crystal Gems #1, Steven teaches the Gems about roasting marshmallows over a campfire, and Garnet plays along, happy to eat the marshmallows.

And in the 2017 ongoing comic series, Steven Universe #3, Garnet is seen in the background of a crowd scene apparently eating or about to eat a donut. (I assume it is a donut, not a bagel, because Beach City businesses are offering their specialties here and the Big Donut is included.)

What do all these instances of comic-book eating have in common?

THEY’RE ALL SWEETS.

OBVIOUS CONCLUSION: GARNET IS A SUGAR FIEND.

This theory may be further supported by the fact that she was the only Gem able to make an acceptable cake for Steven for his birthday in “Birthday Bake-Off,” a short included in the original Steven Universe comic run, #1. Amethyst and Pearl had failed to make edible cakes, and then Garnet shows up with this:

Aaaand it’s not even really a cake, just solid icing.

I hope that when and if she actually does eat in the show, it will be sweets.

  • relax – go pamper yourself; get that double scoop ice-cream, go to spa, maybe get your nails and hair done. you have survived till summer break and you deserve this!
  • try to sort out your tasks and assignments into your planner – I know this can be tough, especially at the start when holidays have just begun; but try to at least plan out for the next week or two. maybe you want to work on that essay or write out those notes – planning will def help you to feel organized and get back your life in place.

  • get a new hobby!! do you draw? paint? write? whatever you do – start doing it. use that time which you spend on the internet in exploring your passions and finding your interests.
  • seriously though, do that work first.

strilondes & co stupid s’mores post

Karkat: his marshmallow is engulfed in flames. dave keeps telling him to take it out. this only makes him more stubborn. shut up I’m doing this my own way. he has created charcoal. it is disgusting. he’ll eat it anyway because dave will make fun of him if he doesnt. dave makes fun of him for eating it. he cannot win

Dave: he keeps making his marshmallow touch other marshmallows. except karkat’s because it is on fire. everyone regards this with benign amusement except john who keeps telling him to knock it off you damn doofus you are going to knock them off into the fire. challenge accepted. they are passive aggressively trying to knock each other’s marshmallows into the fire. in an inexplicable turn of events roxy wins. they didn’t even realize she was trying. dave blames john. john blames dave. roxy feels bad and makes them both perfect s’mores after. they accept this, begrudgingly. roxy sits between them. she puts her arms around the both of them. leans forward and innocently asks if there are any other challengers. no one accepts

Dirk: perfectly roasts his marshmallow. burns his hands pulling it off the stick. pretends that this didnt happen. is annoyed by how it is impossible to eat a smore without getting marshmallow shit all over his face. no one look at me. fuck, everyone is looking. rose is raising her eyebrows at him. jake is grinning at him. just eat it. come on

Jake: bets karkat he can eat more of them than he can. they lose track of who is winning somewhere around number nine. karkat accuses him of cheating b/c hes breaking off the graham cracker pieces outside the lines so his are smaller. jake calls him a whiny soft gut wiggler. karkat mashes a half melted marshmallow into jakes hair. they eat six more each and then bond over a mutual inability to endure even a whiff of the scent of marshmallow or chocolate without gagging for months thereafter

Rose: likes her marshmallows slightly burnt. makes fun of dave for barely toasting his. dave scoffs at her. you just like ur marshmallows the way you like your soul, black and shriveled. rose grins. why thank u dave. youre so sweet. she makes aggressive eye contact as she consumes half the smore in one bite. graham cracker and marshmallow go everywhere. god damn smores and their notorious structural instability. dave and roxy snort when they laugh. rose wipes her face with a paper napkin, balls it up and throws it at them. at least my marshmallows are warm inside. yours are cold & nasty and that’s the facts

Kanaya: doesnt super get it b/c lets face it sweets are kind of ???? when you’re a vampire who constantly craves the coppery taste of questionable liquid sustenance. she eats four anyway because it seems to be The Thing. It’s actually not the worst thing in the world. she slowly collects all the dark chocolate. these are mine. jane asks where tf the dark chocolate bars all went. kanaya looks up, a half melted marshmallow speared on her fangs, sucking the melty fluff out of the middle. it was definitely not me, she says, around a mouthful. uh. yes of course not, jane agrees. she sits back down. her eyes are v. wide. no one questions it again. kanaya privately delights at her good fortune. her story is rock solid and no one suspects her at all and now all these delicious bitter bars are hers and also half rose’s because she’s pretty sure that’s how human marriage works ?? ? ..?

Roxy: puts 7 marshmallows on a stick and creates a toasted gradient. eats the marshmallows directly off the stick. dirk informs her the noises shes making as she does this are borderline obscene. please stop. roxy makes aggressive eye contact as she eats the next one in line like a fuckin marshmallow corncob. dirk throws a marshmallow bag at her. roxy asks him if the marshmallow stick hes using has any relation to the one lodged up his ass. jake chokes on his 14th smore. jane apologizes on their behalf to everyone else present. roxy queues another 7 marshmallows, smirking

Callie: collects one (1) smore from everyone b/c she wants to try out everyones styles. she compliments them all effusively but secretly likes jane’s the best. she cant believe shes finally found this, a sweet that she can also roast mercilessly over an open flame. truly these are gods gift to cherubs. she eats them steadily with no sign of stopping. ppl begin to notice. they become concerned. they are running out of marshmallows. callie. callie we had like ten times as many bags as any reasonable group of people could ever hope to go through in one sitting. what is happening. callie waves them off. she’s still crunching away. she is Content

The signs as fall aesthetics
  • Aries: bonfires, cinnamon, golden autumn sunlight, stepping on leaves and feeling them crunch under your feet, halloween
  • Taurus: tea lights, oversized sweaters, hot spiced apple cider, autumn wreaths, brown sugar
  • Gemini: forests filled with changing leaves, fall fairy lights, jack-o-lanterns, candy corn, crisp apples
  • Cancer: cozy blankets, red noses and cheeks from the cold, the first sip of a pumpkin spice latte, baggy clothes and messy hair, rainy days cozying up with blankets and warm drinks
  • Leo: boots and socks, caramel apples and candies, thanksgiving festivities and food, the feeling of drinking something warm on a cool day
  • Virgo: crisp air, pumpkin patches, rainy days, farmer's markets, the smell of cinnamon in houses and stores
  • Libra: the feeling of being bundled up, hayrides, Halloween candy, driving with the windows down on a cool sunny day
  • Scorpio: hardwood floors, hot chocolate, seeing your breath in the cold, Halloween decorations, roasting marshmallows on an open fire
  • Sagittarius: apple picking, fuzzy socks that keep your feet warm, walks in the woods bundled up in cozy clothes, the smell of fire in the cold, trick or treating at dusk
  • Capricorn: black coffee, overcast days, chilly mornings and nights, flannel shirts, pumpkin pie
  • Aquarius: jumping into piles of leaves, reading outside in the cool air, scarecrows, feeling the warmth of sunlight on a cold day
  • Pisces: haunted houses, drinking hot drinks outside on chilly days, apple pie, foggy days, frost on the leaves and grass in the mornings

Luke and his kiddo 

‘Remember? When we were kids, Clary and I, you brought us here. We roasted marshmallows. Clary got one stuck in her hair. And Jocelyn had to cut it out. Yeah? Clary cried, like, the whole way home because she thought she looked like a boy. But you told her that she was still beautiful, and that you would always love her.’
