Astral Projection - The ability to leave one’s body and travel in spirit to another location.
Aura Reading - The ability to see the energy fields that emanate from living beings. Psychic ability can often reveal itself throught the seeing of auras.
Automatic Writing - Writing through the subconscious mind without conscious thought, or through the guidance of an outside intelligence.
Channeling - Associated with mediums, this is the ability to act as a channel or vessel for an outside intelligence.
Clairaudience - Put simply, this type of ability is used to hear what is “inaudible”. For example, someone with this ability could be a thousand miles way and “hear” a loved one’s cry of distress.
Clairvoyance - Usually confused with Precognition, this ability actually has much more in common with “Remote Viewing”, True clairvoyance is not the abilitly to see into the future, but the psychic ability to see visions of that which is hidden or far away.
Clairsentience - In this instance the psychic has an insight or “knowing” of and a hidden or forgotten fact.
Divination - A broad term that includes fortune telling, precognition, prophesy, and other methods used in an effort to predict the future.
Dowsing - Also known as “water witching”, dowsing involves the use of a rod, sticks, or pendulum to locate water or lost objects.
Empathy - The talent to sense the needs, drives, and emotions of another. As with Aura Reading, psychic ability can often reveal itself through the development of empathy.
E.S.P. - Extra Sensory Perception is the awareness of information about events external to the psychic that are not gained through the senses and not deducible from previous experience. Often used to describe clairvoyance, precognition, telepathy, etc…
Intuition - Similar to clairsentience, this is the power or faculty of attaining direct knowledge or cognition without rational thought or inference.
Levitation - The ability to cause one’s body to hover off the ground. One of the more well-documented cases of levitation involved St. Theresa of Avila during the 16th century.
Mind Over Body - Suppressing or mentally satisfying the need for water, food, or sleep. There is some debate over whether this is actually a psychic ability since many of those who are associated with this trait (monks, yogis, mystics, etc…) are not generally called “psychics”.
Precognition - Quite simply, “knowing the future”. However, since time is a dynamic construct, no one psychic can ever know every detail about the future. Usually this ability refers to knowing general outcomes of specific courses of action, with occasional flashes of detailed insight.
Psychometry - Also known as “object reading”, psychometry enables a psychic to pick up on psychic impressions (vibrations) left on an object by someone connected with it. Someone with this ability could use an unfamiliar object to reveal much about its owner.
Pyrokinesis - The ability to start fires with one’s mind.
Telekinesis - Also known as psychokinesis, the ability to move objects with one’s mind.
Telepathy - The ability to communicate mind-to-mind with another.
When SU comes back and we finally get to Amethyst´s arc, how do you think crewniverse will play it? I´ve been thinking about this last night and…
I saw a theory that there might be another Amethyst, but..i dont think thats the case (even throught us seeing another Amethyst would SURELY be intense and interesting). I actually have feeling that creators are “pushing” Ame towards something..terrible.
What do i mean by “terrible” :
In Too Far, Amethyst asked Peridot to technically INSULT her family (i mean…sure, Amethyst loves jokes, but that was overboard even for her) and then when Peridot talked about her, calling her strong and the only real gem and that she outranks other Crystal Gems (well, THEN she calls her defective but…) have you seen Amethyst´s expression?
For me, she looks so..ok, shes happy to see that someone praises her like that and i understand why, but at same time…it feels scary. Is it just because she craves for attention or bacause she believes that she SHOULD be in charge? Its kinda dark expression…
And another important point: in extended intro, Amethyst sings:
I will fight for the world I was made in, The Earth is everythingI’ve ever known.
And this raises a question: If Amethyst gets a reason to fight for something else, what will she choose?
So, by “terrible” i mean this:
What if Amethyst´s character grows darker.
What if she somehow clashes with other Crystal Gems and in heat of rage, she would say that SHE should be in charge since she is ABOVE THEM accoding to Gem´s caste system.
And if homeworld ever asks her to betray Crystal gems…what will she decide to do?
OKAY but imagine you’re so close to the boys and you’re on tour with them and you enter in the boys’ hotel room and you see ¾ on the beds playing and checking their phones and you see Michael in the bathroom ready for shaving his beautiful beard and he’s all dressed with his Metallica black shirt in front of the sink and you can see him throught the mirror and he sees you in the reflection and his eyes sparkles and Michael turns around to face you and kisses you softly and he CLOSES THE DOOR behind you holding you close and kissing you because he’s happy you’re there and he presses you on the door starting to touch your body under the shirt you’re wearing and you’re like babe we’re not fucking here???? but he just smiles like a baby and he hands you the razor and positions you with your back to the sink and he’s pressed to you soooo close that you can feel him getting hard af but you still smile and he kisses you with his lips but you kissed im back anyways and he starts to kiss you deeper and you’re ready to put your legs on his waist but he wakes up and stops everything saying “babe not now we can fuck after this” you blushed as fuck and nodded like a little child so you see him taking the bottle of shaving foam as he starts to shake it hard still looking ad you and you’re like ?????? but Michael laughs a bit showing you the shit he’s holding and telling you that first you have to put the shaving foam on his face with a brush and you see it on the sink so you turn around to take it and you see yourself and michael in the reflection so your just fangirl a bit hghgjfjsjushrgfhsju and you turn around to face him and he just opens the bottle for you and put some foam in your hand and you start to put it on his face and you’re in awe adoring him and caressing his face and he keeps looking at you soo concentrated but he’s secretly admiring you bc you’re so close and he loves you so much it hURTS and you touch his jaw so softly and Michael just smiles bc he’s really proud of you and what you’re doing and you’re like fuck Michael you’re so horny even with that white shit on and he just smiles looking at you holding the razor and you’re like what i’m going to do with this?????? but he quickly answers “i want you to do it for me babe” and his eyes are full of luST OH GOD and your jaw basically dropped on the floor like what??????? what if i accidentally cut your face oh something like that??????????? and he’d be like “don’t panic, i’m here to help you and guide you if you do something wrong but i know you’re a pro bc you always shave your legs in 0,3 seconds” and you’d be like lol true but that’s not the same thing !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! btw you feel his hand moving with your and the razor is now on his face ready to cut the bear and you’re like no babe don’t shave it i like how your face is right now and his hands start to guide yours through his beautiful face and you see the beard slowly disappears with the shaving foam and you’re so concentrate bc you don’t want to hurt Michael and his beautiful face and you can’t see how michael is looking at you in awe like “you’re so beautiful” and he steals you kisses bc he loves you so much and why i find this so hot and cute at the same time no i’M DONE DON’T TOUCH ME
Here’s my submission to the deck - the Knight of Swords.
The first in the line of suit royalty, the Knight of Swords is the master of emotional intention and determination, sometimes associated with travel and communication. It is a card that embodies focus and is a unison of mind, body, and spirit towards an overall goal, associated with both air (emotion) and water (mind), two elements that go hand in hand with mastery of emotional intentionality. Powerful thinking is the apex of the card, and actions will follow. Reversed, this card can forbode manipulation through cruelty and twisting of words or memories.
Huge thanks to Mia explodinghye for organizing this project and seeing it through!
