How do you know a character that you love has humanity? When they get mad? No. Everyone gets mad. A way to know that a character has humanity, a shot of redemption, is when they are hurt. When you are hurt, it shows that you have a heart. Characters who are hurt have a chance to be redeemed.
-Thinks Wheatley is a cool, complex character who deserves a shot at redemption
-cries about the ending of portal 2. Would have grabbed him it they could
-probably loves blue sky and cries about banana stickers
-likes to draw cute human wheatley hanging out with other peoples’ cute human wheatleys
-thinks wheatley is a mistake. throw him in the garbage bin like the trash bag he is.
-toaster in satellite orbit. Good bye fucker
-not straight. heavily sympathizes with either chell or GLaDOS and probably ships chelldos
-shames the mistake orb 24/7
-who wants to play a game of basketball
-crying in the corner over doug rattmann
-probably really good at analysis. gets the plot and the characters down 100%. makes really cool art or fan fiction
-he deserved so much better than this

Okay I know a lot of people have been talking about Tamlin possibly being redeemed in ACOWAR because Sarah said he would have a shot at redemption but correct me if I’m wrong…Sarah never really says the word redemption. She keeps it hella vague in this interview:
Interviewer: This also may be too big of a spoiler to give away, but will Tamlin get a shot at redemption?
SJM: You’ll have to wait until book three to see, but…Tamlin still has his own journey ahead in this world.
Now obviously there’s always a chance she’ll give him that redemption arc. We’ll see what she does with his character but for the people that REALLY hate his guts and don’t ever wanna see him get redeemed…I don’t think you really need to worry too much based off of this. I think there’s a higher chance we’ll see him alive at the end of the book from this quote but honestly I’m not really counting on him redeeming himself. Let me know what you guys think
Got a character who needs motivation? Pick a motivator from this list. Better yet, pick two or more that don’t quite line up. That’s a genuine character flaw right there. That’ll create some conflict.
Like John McClane, motivated by Love for his wife and his Duty as a cop. That added a lot of conflict to his marriage. Now he’s going for one last shot at Redemption. We haven’t even started to factor in the terrorists trying to highjack the Christmas party. Go conflict!
nicki got a L the moment she fucked with meek. That shit never made sense to me. Now meek some super salty dude and probably going to remain salty fo life on some 50 cent shit. This was probably nicki one shot at redemption, damnear a fresh start. the only thing is remy ain’t a mega star which gives nicki a slight chance to ride this bullshit out.
“There are things from the Winter Soldier days that I’m just remembering. Weapons left in the field… Dangers I can still prevent. I think maybe that’s the path… A way to the redemption I’ve been looking for.”
“Did you think I made the team the way it is because I thought it would be a good publicity stunt? It’s about second chances. Second, third, fourth, whatever, as long as you get at least one more than what anyone else wanted to give you.”
The Palmetto State Foxes have been called many things: a halfway house, a team of talented rejects, a fucking joke. But despite defeat and despite those who have loudly questioned them, the Foxes have never wavered: they remain absolutely committed to giving troubled athletes a shot at redemption, a home and a chance to prove themselves on the court.
Will this be the season that the Foxes finally show, once and for all, what they’re made of? Or will they only crash and burn?
so in a lot of The Biscourse i’ve seen, people say that bismuth’s breaking point was unnecessarily violent, because they could’ve just bubbled their enemies instead. this frames the bismuth vs. rose conflict as a matter of both parties seeking the same end goal – doing away with the diamonds for good – only with one way being tidier and more pleasant. but i don’t think that’s it.
unless rose’s views were awfully narrow, i can’t really believe she’d argue that putting someone in an endless coma they’ll never wake from is somehow superior to shattering them. what difference would it make? they’d stop existing either way. the difference between shattering and bubbling isn’t simply that one is less violent, it’s that bubbling is something you can come back from.
had rose’s grand plan been to bubble the diamonds, that means she believed they had a shot a redemption. that means she believed that if she just sat them all down for a nice cup of tea at the temple a millennium or two later, maybe they’d open their eyes and see the error of their ways. i mean, look at steven – if there’s anyone who’d believe the diamonds could grow and change, it’s this kid’s mom.
given that the diamonds are horrible tyrants utterly devoid of empathy who would undoubtedly require an enormous sacrifice of crystal gem soldiers just to subdue the first time around, can you really blame bismuth for refusing to accept this course of action?
Ever think back to a small bad thing you did (like “sorry I wronged you in this way” “I don’t even remember it, it’s cool” level stuff) and feel so ashamed you feel like suicide is your only shot at redemption? Why the fuck am I like this, stop being so extra you dumb bitch.
I love Lapis–but she isn’t an angel despite gaining wings. I dunno why people are hellbent in seeing Lapis and Jasper in absolute black and white, and its a bit frustrating lol.
Like–Lapis somewhat cares for Steven, but dear lord she HATES the crystals gems and she HATES earth.
When she found out Steven was a crystal gem, that’s when she turned on him. Yes, we don’t know the full story but we have to wait on that. But here’s the thing, Lapis was Steven’s Beach Summer Fun Buddy until she counted she with “THE ENEMY”. People keep saying “she didn’t know” or “she didn’t mean to” and that’s being willfully ignorant. SHE sent out the Water Clones to attack. STEVEN’S WATER CLONE SPOKE IN HER VOICE. She was AWARE of what they were doing and she was OKAY with it if not outright CONTROLLING them.
“Look kids, Lapis can punch a child too!”
And the only reason why Steven and Connie weren’t killed was because Greg ran over the clone with his van, but then the clone threw his van and tried to kill HIM too.
Of course Steven still wanted to help because he’s Steven. She thanked Steven, but never apologized and just left, letting the ocean fall with Steven still on top. Steven had to be saved from that too.
“Lapis somewhat cares for Steven, but dear lord she HATES the crystals gems and she HATES earth.
She sent a warning to Steven alone, but still led Peridot to the crystal gems’ base.
Since she does care about Steven, she hid information from Jasper and Peridot. “It wasn’t relevant to the mission.” She became a prisoner after it was obvious she withheld information from the homeworld gems.
She STILL led them to earth, to the crystal gems, with the mission to restart the kindergarden. SHE HATES EARTH. She didn’t seem so bothered with what would have happened to everything Steven loved, just him in particular on short term.
I still love her character but ffs, she has problems. I really want to see Lapis and Jasper to both come back and hopefully get a shot at redemption.
