Now We’re Even

Summary: Based off this prompt I found on Pinterest: "Are you sure I can’t punch him in the face?“ "Yes.” “What if I just break his nose a little?”

Characters: Bucky Barnes, Sam Wilson, Steve Rogers, Reader

Warnings: None

Word count: 665

Masterlist


“Are you SURE I can’t punch him in the face?” Bucky asked.

“Yes,” you sighed, not even bothering to look up from your book. You stretched your legs out even more, taking up almost half of Tony’s expensive leather couch. Nestling back into the pillow you had placed against the armrest, you continued your afternoon reading.

Bucky stared at you from the other end of the couch and hummed thoughtfully. He slowly scooted another inch closer to you. You felt the couch shift with his movements but chose to ignore him.

Bucky slowly moved again, his muscular thighs grazing the tips of your toes. A small smile threatened the corners of your lips, but you held strong. You started back up at the top of the page when you realized you hadn’t comprehended a single word.

Bucky pushed your legs apart and crawled up the front of your body until his head was resting underneath your book. He tucked both arms under his chin and looked up at you expectantly. It was quite comical really, and he almost reminded you of a cat. A much heavier cat with a metal arm, but a cat nonetheless.

You lifted your book up and quirked your eyebrows at him. Ice blue eyes stared back up at you with a faux-innocence.

“Can I help you?” you asked, amusement lacing your voice.

“What if I just break his nose a little?” Bucky replied, hopefully.

“Bucky!” you yelled exasperatedly. “It was just a cookie!” You bopped him on the head with your book for emphasis.

“But it was MY cookie, doll!” he groaned, shoving his face against your chest. “Do you have any idea how much I wanted that cookie?” You giggled as his deep voice vibrated against you.

“Aww, my poor baby,” you cooed.

Bucky glared up at you. “This isn’t funny,” he mumbled, looking dejected. “He does this crap on purpose, you know.”

You rolled your eyes and tossed your book on the floor. Grabbing his ear, you dragged all 200 pounds of muscle out of the living room.

“Ow, doll, what are you-” Bucky complained as you pulled him along. “Hey! Ease up a bit, would ya?”

You ignored his pleas and refused to show him mercy until you reached the kitchen. Sam and Steve sat at the island, laughing over some story you had zero interest in.

“Hey, Y/N!” Sam exclaimed. His gaze wandered to a hunched over Bucky. “What’s up?”

“Sam,” you said calmly as you continued to hold Bucky’s ear, “can you PLEASE refrain from eating Bucky’s cookies from now on? It’s seriously interfering with my reading time.”

Sam paused briefly before busting out in laughter. “That’s real cute, Y/N,” he guffawed, clutching his stomach.

Steve knew better and kept his mouth shut. You clenched your jaw and finally released Bucky’s ear. You stalked over to Sam and he nearly fell off his stool as you stood so close that you could see every pore on his face.

“Sam,” you growled, “stay away from Bucky’s food or I will personally bury your dead body in the backyard where not even the heat sensors Tony installed can find you. Clear?”

“Crystal,” Sam gulped.

Your dark expression faded and you smiled brightly. “Good!” you exclaimed. “Now, if we’re all done acting like children, I’m going to go back to my book.” You sauntered out of the kitchen back towards the living room.

“Man, I can’t believe you ratted me out to your girlfriend,” Sam muttered as soon as you were out of earshot. He glared daggers at Bucky, and Steve held back a snort.

“Don’t touch my stuff, Bird Man, and we won’t have a problem,” Bucky replied, rubbing his still-sore ear. He strolled over to the freezer and took out the last ice cream sandwich. He unwrapped the paper and took a huge, satisfying bite.

“Hey!” Sam yelled. “That was mine!”

Bucky just smirked as he backed away, taking another bite.

“Now we’re even.”

I LIKE…….

HAVE NO IDEA WHAT’S GOING ON HERE??

CUZ HE’S IN HIS INSTRUCTOR OUTFIT???? so I’m thinking that it might be a ref for another character for how an arm would work??? oR MAYBE HE DOES GET A NEW ALTEAN ARM AND THE INSTRUCTOR THING WAS JUST THERE ALREADY cuz whoever’s working on it had the file/lineart for it

cuz it’s the picture they used when they show his picture in the Kerberos news

Jitter Bug

This is a thing based off a lil blurby blurb I did a while back and honestly, I just fell in love with it and yeah so. Here is a fic about that. This is?? The first fic I’ve ever written about Sami (aside from occasional blurbs) and I’m really excited and I hope y’all like it. Short and sweet, the way I like it. 

Warnings: fluff, nerves, and awkward bread sticks. Hold onto your seats folks, this is gonna get mushy.

Anyways, this may just be the cutest thing I’ve ever written and I WAS BLUSHING THE ENTIRE TIME WRITING AND GIGGLING LIKE A SCHOOL GIRL okay it was bad.

Rosy!!! That was so good!!! Where do I even start? Bellarke, the delinquents, Bellamy's talk with Echo, Braven talking about clarke in space. Next season is gonna be wild. I know people are going to freak out about Becho and Braven but honestly, no matter what Bellarke is endgame. The writers cemented that fact this episode. I'm so ready! Bring on S5!!!

TBH I was kind of excited for Braven there. And y’all do know my ot3 is bravenlarke right? I don’t think they’d go there, because even though this show treats sex in a modern way I can’t imagine it, but still…

I’m so tired of the ship wars. I know that Bellarke is actually endgame, that was clear with this episode. She talked to him every day for 6 years. (those bitches. it wasn’t a five year time jump.) 

They rebooted the damn thing. We have grounder Clarke. Skyperson Bellamy. 

No idea what they’re planning.

Hiatus doc.

Guys I got three entries in the doc so far. Two are done right the last one I got no idea what to do with and I search tumblr in every way I can imagine. So let me show you how too. (the link I used is from a random fic of mine and just to show you what I want you to do.

anonymous asked:

What do you think would ever happen if Maria did meet the Plain Doll, like the animate version in the Hunter's Dream? Completely impossible, I know, but hypothetically how do you think their interaction would go? What would Maria think of her, say to her, vice versa, etc.?

She would faint just like Christine when she sees her own doll in the Phantom’s lair

[this show ↑ ↑ ↑  is the reason why I don’t really make a fuss about Plain Doll lmao. I’ve seen so much worse.]

Joking aside, I think that canon Maria would be pretty confused at first. If she had absolutely no idea of Gehrman’s ‘interest’ in her, she wouldn’t even suspect he was the one who created the doll and I honestly don’t think Plain Doll herself knows about it. She is aware to have been created by humans but from her words we can assume that she doesn’t have any memories of Gehrman before the Hunter’s Dream was beckoned. In addition, she calls him ‘obscure’ and refers to him as someone who ‘was a hunter, long ago’. Just one of the many, no one special.

Now, I do think that Maria is a smart lady and I’m pretty sure she’ll put the pieces together at some point. Her attitude towards the doll would probably remain kind, because she’ll understand that she has no idea of what’s going on and because Maria can see something of herself in her. (some people say that Maria and the Doll are opposites but I don’t feel like it’s correct. From the little we get to see and hear about Maria, she sounds both a kind, caring woman AND a badass hunter with enough bravery to go against the traditions of her family.)

Would the doll realize that she looks just like the woman in front of her? Would she remember something just like when she saw the hair ornament? Probably yes, but to what extent is hard to say. People still debate about what exactly did she remembered when the hairpin is given to her after all. I do think it was Maria’s happiness in receiving that humble but significant gift from her teacher but that’s just me UoU.

Same thing goes for Maria, in a way. Her reaction to the Doll would change a lot depending on how you interpret her relationship with Gehrman and the kind of person you imagine her to be. Canon-wise, she admired him and suspected nothing, so she would most likely be really surprised/weirded out in finding out about his ‘mania’ (who wouldn’t) but the way she would react to such a realization could be many and very different aside from the initial “WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK.” 

I could tell you how I think ‘my’ Maria would react and how she would consequently treat the Doll but it’s very difficult to formulate a hypothesis that would work for all the Marias out there since everyone has their own take on Soulsborne characters anyways.

Can I just say I hate how the cast except mel don't speak up about this. If I were his co-star or director or whatever i would honestly name and shame people who have attacked him online AND call them what they are; nasty fucking bullies! I'm a writer and if i were to ever go into a project & my actors were getting attacked i would take legal measures. Like make people sign terms and conditions before buying tickets so they don't pull shit like that. If they bully an actor they get thrown OUT!

YES YES AND YES! Someone in that cast needs to pull a Lana from Once Upon a Time and call nasty fans out. That’s a courageous woman right there who will call her own fans out if the situation calls for it. I’m so furious right now. You have no idea. I feel like both Chris and Mel don’t even give a shit about the show anymore and don’t promote it like they used to and the rest of the cast just sits back and does nothing. But can I say that I love Rahul? The only one with the guts to confront those people and mock them. 

Space Invaders (Sort of)

Today I made a basic version of space invaders, to workout my programming muscles. I sourced the idea from a challenge provide by @no-weekend, the challenge being “Old becomes new” I didn’t really stick to the challenge, I more so just made a prototype of space invaders. I did however throw a 2 “Portals” in the game so you can go round and a round.

anonymous asked:

Hi! Sorry to bother... I just joined a Takarasienne's fanclub and planning to go see a show soon in Tokyo. I am hoping to join irimachi and demachi with the fanclub, so I was wondering if you have any tips for people doing iri/de for the first time? (My Japanese is beginners level and I'm a bit shy, so I'm kind of worried that I have to do a self intro or sth in front of the other members of the fanclub....). Thanks!

Hi! While I know a bit about club life I have to admit I have only ever been in an OG club so I don’t have any insider Takarazuka club experience, but I can give some very general tips, and maybe some other people who are in clubs can chime in with their experiences. 

It’s a good idea to prepare as much as possible beforehand so you don’t have to run around in a panic when you arrive. Make sure you have your wear or at least know what it looks like if you haven’t received it yet, because that makes it really easy to spot the other people in your club when you don’t know them. Make sure you know the meeting spot ahead of time and don’t get there late. 

Even if your Japanese is beginner level, don’t try to use Google translate to communicate with your staff! Keep it very simple using phrases you’re comfortable with or get someone to help you if you need to write something more complicated.

What you’ll have to do with the other members and the actress varies wildly depending on the troupe, the actress, and how many people are in her club, so I can’t guarantee you will or won’t have to introduce yourself… but maybe you can prepare a simple introduction in Japanese just in case and memorize it? Your first few times doing iride, you can hang out in the back and go with the flow, the other members will definitely help you get used to things. 

I know some foreign fans who have brought a hometown gift for the actress and also something small for the daihyou/staff as thanks for mailing things overseas/being patient with beginner Japanese/etc. It’s definitely not mandatory but it’s a nice thought!

anonymous asked:

So- any ideas as that why the show made a big deal of Yang's actions in the tournament instead of going with all the hunters believing it to be a hallucination, clearing her name but astill being removed from the tournament for safety concerns? The show spent a lot of time with the group to create a foundation that's not being used with Yang's future being basically screwed.

part of it is obviously in playing up the sense of unease so the full blown panic hitting the next day is that much more intense because the general public’s already ‘primed’ in upset (and especially as Cinder deliberately brought up the incident, which would further connect what happened in the fight with the chaos that was about to unfold)

and really i think the general public - the majority of which won’t be familiar with battlefield stress, and have “already formed their own opinions” - that’s where it might end up being followed up, with how Yang is treated now she’s back in the world. and especially now she’s headed somewhere that saw her attack who they believe to be one of their own representatives - they’re not going to be very inclined to believe her side of the story and have had months to sit on things and really stew on that anger that would be directed towards everything they were really led to believe built up to the fall of Beacon and the world starting to go to hell. Yang wasn’t just the warm-up act, she had a finger pointed squarely at her - so she could end up facing a lot of animosity and misattributed blame for what happened. and as Yang does like helping people, being rejected or forced away out of no fault of her own would be upsetting for her

volume 5 already has a lot of potential for being quite focused on Yang anyway - she’s in Anima, in an area not too far from where Raven operates. Qrow’s in Mistral, he’d promised to help Yang look for Raven so it could be followed up on, and we’ll probably learn more about the Branwens and their weirdness in the process. Blake’s gonna be in Mistral at some point, so addressing the aftermath of what happened with Adam is gonna come up (especially as Adam is also in the area, and Yang’s so far unaddressed PTSD and emotional recovery are almost certainly gonna play into things). Hazel’s knocking about and given his comments at the beginning of volume 4, he was probably involved in Summer’s death, which obviously affected Yang too

even Oscar, by proxy of having Ozpin in his head, could play into things, because Ozpin almost certainly sent Summer on the mission that got her killed, Ozpin sending Qrow on missions all the time resulted in Yang being left alone to take care of Ruby while Taiyang wallowed, and, given her knowledge and that like Qrow she seems to have strange abilities, it’s possible Raven worked for Ozpin too at some point and his manipulations may be a factor in why she left

there’s just a lot of stuff that could (and should) go on regarding Yang this coming volume, and it could all build up to a breaking point for her - the rejection she’d face from a lot of the people she interacts with could be a good starting point fo that

[ I won’t go easy on you, slick Nick! ]

This is the corresponding picture of [Bring it on, Carrots!] Inspired by @baronpuddinsplace ‘s post [Here] as well.

I started to wonder if the idea of Judy practicing taekwondo is also from Juri in <Street Fighter V>?

In order to finish this picture, three sketch was done… I must say Judy is kinda HARD TO DRAW GOOD!! 

Speaking of Taekwondo: It is the first martial arts I learnt back when I’m second grade, it was fun and I liked the uniform, but one day when the master was inspecting my “19 steps(?)”, he scolded me that I didn’t show good progress. Back then I have low self-esteem, so I skipped the following class after that… What a shame~  

ajcaimi  asked:

Hey Dana. I was wondering if you have any plans to develop and pitch a show of your own. If you do, what advice do you have for people who want to create their own show?

I did have plans to pitch a show. And I pitched it! And Disney bought it! And now I’m developing it!  It’s difficult and exciting ESPECIALLY because I’m doing all this for the first time. I hope I can show some images someday!

If I were to give one piece of advice to past me, it’d be to get comfortable writing entertaining scripts. As a showrunner the most important thing will be The Show, and 90% of The Show comes from The Writing. It’s difficult to find writers who will 100% understand your vision but if that’s an area you’re comfortable in you’ll never be an dire straits. I had never professionally written a script before my pilot. If I did maybe that part wouldn’t have been as stressful at the time haha. 

But let’s say you’re already good there. You’re good everywhere! 

How to pitch a thing! I used to love making “pitch books” as a kid, though I had no idea that’s what I was doing. It was just fun to develop worlds and characters! So even if you’re in HS or younger, making “pitch books” is a great way to spend your time and practice for the future. So get to it! Here’s just one format you can try: 

1. Cover page with short description of show and a fun image of your main character!

2. ½-1 full page describing your main character/s! (Don’t start with exhaustive explanations about the world, or any legends, or w/e, we’re here bc we want to connect with a character).

3. A couple pages with any other important characters you may have!

4. A page describing the most important relationships between your main character/s and others!

5. Simple 1 page description on how your world works! If it’s too complicated to get on one page, SIMPLIFY! Even the most complicated ideas can be pitched in 1-2 sentences. 

6. Important places! The main characters house? The bad guy’s castle? Stuff like that. 

7. Give em a couple episode examples! That’s where your show comes together, after all. 

And you’re done!

Fill your pitch book with fun images that show off your characters and your world! You don’t have to follow this format exactly, it’s your show, your pitch, do whatever you think will show off your ideas best. If you’re making an epic you might want to dedicate a page to where you want the show to go, and how the characters will evolve. Everything depends on what you want to make. But above all: Make it interesting to read!!! Make it fun to look at!!! Boredom is your enemy, fight against it!!!!

Are my exclamation points making this easier to understand? GREAT!!!!!

Now get out there and pitch some things cause I want new shows to watch.

episode two :: Yuri realizes, suddenly and terribly, he might be a little bit in love.  


Victor doesn’t even try to go to sleep.  He just lays in bed with his laptop, watching the thirty-seven takes of Yuuri trying to get “hi, I’m Yuuri Katsuki, and I’m the Bachelor” out of his mouth.

Don’t they know who I am?” Yuuri slurs on screen.  

Yuuri, you have to put the champagne bottle down, you have to pretend to be sober,” Phichit says off camera, all authority gone from his voice.  He’s trying not to laugh.

Phichit,” Yuuri says, and he takes a big swig from the bottle, bubbles pouring down both sides of his lips. “You can’t tell me what to do.  I’m Yuuri Katsuki, and I’m the motherfucking Bachelor.

Can you say salty? Sexualized where? Touka, an adult, decided to have sex with the man she loved, where is the problem? She wasnt the only one that was naked and exposed. We got naked Kaneki too, it wasnt just sexy naked Touka for fans and Kaneki to ogle. Why isnt anyone saying shit about Kaneki being “sexualized”? is that not a double standard? Are we saying Kaneki, as a man, cant be sexaulized?  I mean dude was pretty naked as I recall. If their problem is Touka being sexualized why dont they feel the same for Kaneki? He was equally naked, we even got a close up of his ass.

Also 99.9% of the time we have seen Touka on screen she’s been fully clothed. We’ve never seen her in some super sexy get up, which wouldn’t even be a problem as long as its in character. So I fail to see where she’s been the victim of being sexualized for fan service.

To the other people bitching about Touka being depicted as :one of those women" you can shut your misogynistic mouths. We know damn well what “that kind of woman” means. Again why are we going after only Touka? Is she having sex by herself? No, Kaneki is a fully willing participant too. Yet I dont see people implying he’s “that kind of person”. 

Is the problem that she initiated? Are people saying that women who initiate sex are “sluty”? What are we just supposed to wait for a guy to ask us marry them and then wait for them to make the move? What kind of stupid logic is that? 

Then we have people implying that Kaneki is the victim of pressure or assault when Touka clearly pulls away from the first kiss and Kaneki goes back for more. Also note that Touka on the bottom when penetration happens not on top. Kaneki is the one in control in that moment. Its his move, he either pushes forward and penetrates or nothing happens. Kaneki is willing and happy about this.

Haters need to stop trying to hide behind fake concern for Touka or the quality of the manga. Stop trying to hide behind this idea that Ishida disrespected Touka by depicting her making love with the man she loves. People keep calling it hentai but if you’ve ever seen hentai then you know its far more detailed and explicit then this chapter. Hentai has girls bodies on full display, breast bounces around all over the place, genitals fully exposed, positioned in was to show off their bodies. Often the guy is transparent at times just so you can see the females breast, vagina, ass or anus on full display. How in the seven hells is that in anyway similar to how Ishida drew touken making love? Yeah, its not.

Women are not these pure objects for people to place on a pedestals and then toss aside when they no longer fit the “pure” image. Touka isnt any less for having sex, she isnt a slut or a horrid person. Even if she had banged 1, 5 or 20 guys(or women) she’s still not a slut. She lost her virginity and she isnt any less for it and no one should lose respect for her or Ishida for it.

Kill this idea that woman having sex is bad, gross or takes away from a woman.

Everyone with these backwards ideas and stupid ass view can shove it. Touka wasnt horrible sexualized, she isnt now a “slut” and she isnt a abuser either.

(sorry binche for this long rambling submission)

Barn Mates - One Year On

Barn Mates was first aired exactly a year ago today… and what a monumental episode it was for both Lapis and Peridot!

For those of us who were already shipping Lapidot, it was a dream come true – and for some of those who weren’t, it opened their eyes to a whole new (and now completely canonically viable) ship.

I’ve written about this episode a few times in the past, but it feels fitting to look back on it again today; for day one of Lapidot Anniversary Week!

So, without further ado…

The episode opens with Peridot wistfully speaking into her tape recorder about sharing her new home with Lapis.  Only a couple of episodes prior to this point, Peridot had made the decision to stay at the barn by herself whilst the other Crystal Gems returned to the temple. The fact that she now so enthusiastically wants to share her home with Lapis (as opposed to going back with the other Gems or staying by herself in the barn) just shows that she already has some level of admiration for Lapis.

Peridot says:

“Why don’t we watch the sun come up and figure out what we’re going to do with all this time, eh Lazuli?”

Watching the sun rise with someone is an old romantic tradition/cliché, so the fact that Peridot specifically mentions wanting to do this with Lapis certainly speaks some volumes.   And it also transpires…

…that this line was foreshadowing a scene that came later in the show – in Room For Ruby, not only are they watching the sun rise together (just as Peridot wanted to do), they’ve actually been sat together all night stargazing prior to this point, which is another activity that has obvious romantic connotations.

After Peridot has finished speaking into the tape recorder in Barn Mates, Lapis expresses her desire to live in the barn all on her own. Steven suggests that the barn be split down the middle, with each of the two Gems having their own “side”, which leads to a very interesting shot of the pair of them:

Notice how they’re effectively framing a picture that’s behind them.   This picture is of the barn’s previous owners – Greg’s aunt and uncle, who Greg described back in Space Race as follows:

“My aunt and uncle had a great love for aviation, and each other.  They cherished the years they spent together, and they held on to every belonging they ever owned.”

It’s interesting, then, that a picture of a happy couple has been placed directly in-between Lapis and Peridot in this shot.  This becomes something of a trend as the show progresses, with the picture being placed in-shot with Peridot and Lapis on occasion in a fair few other episodes, such as these:

This could well be foreshadowing a romantic relationship between Lapis and Peridot.  The fact that Greg mentions “aviation” is also something interesting to think about, considering that Lapis can fly and Peridot was the pilot of the Hand Ship back in Jailbreak.

Lapis isn’t keen on the idea of splitting the barn, telling Steven that Peridot is the problem:

“I can’t stand the thought of looking at her everyday!”

This statement is now somewhat ironic because, in the episodes since Barn Mates, Lapis almost always has her eyes on Peridot – and gives her some extremely suggestive looks, too!

Peridot and Steven both try to assure Lapis that Peridot has changed, but she doesn’t want to hear it. Steven thinks it’s “sweet” that Peridot wants Lapis to see how much she’s changed since their last encounter, and he helps her to make an apology card which has a very interesting picture drawn on the front of it:

Steven may well have the intent of getting Peridot and Lapis to be friends, but he’s drawn them looking like an actual couple here; they’re even holding hands.

Eventually, after some persuasion from Steven, Lapis joins them – and a beaming Peridot hands over the card.  This still fails to win-over an unimpressed Lapis, much to Peridot’s disdain.

“It took me over an hour to compose [the message in the card], and I was the most sincere as per Steven’s instructions!”

The fact that Peridot put so much time into her apology message gives us an indication of how highly Peridot thinks of Lapis – and how much she wants to make her feel better. She then spends some time deliberating what she could give to Lapis as a gift (upon Steven’s suggestion), and they come up with an idea…

“H-2-Oh my GOSH!” … “It’s a gift for you!  You know, ‘cause water’s your thing.”

Peridot’s mannerisms and tone of voice here are very flirtatious.  However, given Lapis’ previous traumatic experience of being trapped on the bottom of the ocean, this is another idea that falls completely flat.

And what does Peridot do?

“A pool?!  What a cloddy idea!  Of course she wouldn’t like that!”

She actually blames herself for the mistake.  This is very uncharacteristic of Peridot, who normally has a very lofty opinion of herself and her intellectual capacity – which, again, shows how highly she must think of Lapis.  She even uses the word “cloddy” to describe her own idea; with “clod” being an insult that she usually only ever levels at other people when she’s at her most angry.

She then decides to make a very grand gesture…

…and offers her most prized possession – the tape recorder – to Lapis as a gift.

She’s very flirtatious in doing so here, as well.  With a wink and a smile, she tells Lapis:

“See, the ribbon is even blue.  I got yo’ number!”

Peridot has offended all of the other Gems at some point in the past, but she’s never been seen to perform as grand a gesture as this one in order to win them over. 

Peridot is, in a lot of ways, incredibly materialistic - she has been shown on more than one occasion to hold her very few possessions really closely to her.  By Peridot’s standards, handing the tape recorder over is essentially the biggest thing she could do for someone, which is a very clear indication of her feelings towards Lapis.

This gesture is completely lost on Lapis, however, who proceeds to crush the tape recorder in her hand.

Usually in these situations, Peridot would be distraught that one of her possessions had been destroyed (see, for example, Peridot on her knees begging Amethyst not to throw away her beloved tablet in Too Short To Ride).  However, this time, she actually seems to be upset by the fact that she’s managed to upset Lapis once again, exclaiming:

“What, were you trapped in a tape recorder too?!”

Peridot is exasperated by this point, and gives a very heartfelt speech which, I believe, really gets to the root of one of the key reasons why a relationship between Lapis and Peridot just makes perfect sense:

“Look, I get it, you know?  You’re confused!  You can never go back to Homeworld.  This place doesn’t exactly feel like home yet.  You’re alone, no one could possibly know what that feels like!  Oh wait, I do!  We’re the same, except…  you don’t have to be alone.”

She and Lapis are going through the exact same thing at basically the same time; namely, being stranded on earth with no way of returning to Homeworld.  There’s literally no-one else who they could bond with over this, except for each other – it’s a common ground that they share with each other and only each other.  It’s logical and sensible storytelling, therefore, to have these two characters stick together and share the experience with each other.  It puts them on equal ground, gives them both an acute understanding of each other, and enables them to both support one another as they adjust to life on earth.

At this point in Barn Mates, however, Lapis still isn’t having any of it.  Peridot, clearly at her wits end, asks what Lapis wants from her.  Lapis angrily tells Peridot that she wants her to leave… and that’s exactly what Peridot does.  She wants Lapis to be happy so much that she’s even willing to give up her home so that Lapis can live there instead.

As she walks away, Steven reprimands Lapis for treating Peridot so badly.  As he’s talking, Lapis folds her arms and shifts on the spot, her gaze meeting the crushed tape recorder on the floor.  Everything about her body language in this scene exudes guilt.  

Peridot comes screaming back towards them moments later, however – being pursued by a Roaming Eye that she’s convinced is after her.    

The trio flee from the ship, but eventually come face-to-face with it, which causes Peridot to cower behind Steven in fear.

However…

…Lapis steps forward, and glances back at a wide-eyed Peridot.

This scene is very important because it’s the first time we ever get to see that Lapis does actually care about Peridot, despite the pair of them getting off to a very turbulent start.  She steps up to defend the helpless Peridot from the Roaming Eye, and makes sure to specifically ask Peridot if she’s ok after the threat has been neutralised – proving that she didn’t only have Steven’s interests at heart when she took out the Roaming Eye.

What happens next needs no introduction…

Peridot has still, to this day, never looked at anyone else with such love.  The way that her hands are clasped to her chest makes it the typical “cartoon character looking at their love interest” pose.  That smile on her face is literally the biggest one that she’s ever given.  And Lapis’ deep blush, that she actually turns her head away from Peridot in an attempt to hide, is also a reaction from her that’s unique to this scene – and very much implies that the apparent feeling of attraction is mutual.  There appears to be some symbolism behind the sun coming out as Peridot smiles, too.  This could well be an indication that Lapis is warming up to Peridot and seeing her in a new light.  It also has a somewhat poetic quality to it, with the storm clouds (both literal and metaphorical) dissipating at this very moment.

Steven picks up on what’s going on, giggling to himself as he looks at Lapis.  It’s also very interesting that Peridot’s loving look is still lingering even after the camera angle has changed – this is no fleeting “micro expression”, it’s a very prolonged and deliberate look…

…which was the first of very, very many that the pair of them have since gone on to give each other (the above images being a small handful of examples).

All in all, Barn Mates was the start of a very beautiful relationship between these two Gems, which has well and truly endured throughout the past twelve months – and has gotten ever stronger with each episode that they’ve appeared in together.
