“Aww jeez… They really did a number on you, huh?” You gently pet one of Diablo’s large legs as he softly rumbled. There were areas on the demon’s body where the scales looked like they had become a bit soft. You could also see markings in the harder scales on his back that looked like cuts from a sword. “Need me to go spawn some health globes?”

The Prime Evil exhaled smoke in a short and irritated negative. The injuries weren’t major, but Diablo had been surprised by the strength of the Nexus newbies. He shouldn’t have been, so he supposed this was all on him.

As a Nexus Caretaker, it was your job to make sure everyone stayed fit for duty. You helped organise the weekly roster and tried to cycle through everyone evenly. “You’ve been active for a couple weeks, big guy. I think it might be the time to find someone to replace you for a week.” You tapped in a few notes in your datapad. “I’ll be back later to check up on you and make a call.”

I think what I like so much about Paul’s storyline on BC is that it’s just so realistic. There was no sudden changing of everyone, people didn’t just magically show up at his church and somehow started believing in God again - it was no fake happy ending. He is a man who wants something different for his life and who is brave enough to leave that which doesn’t work for him behind instead of spending year after year trying to connect with people who have no need for him. I know a lot of viewers found his role/arc to be boring or even him a useless character, but I don’t agree, I think he added to the very realistic feeling Broadchurch has had since day 1. Life isn’t perfect, bad things happen and not everyone will live happily ever after.

This is my current td state at this point. I reserve the right to change my mind, of course, but at this very moment for me Beth’s return sorta feels like an inevitability…that will never happen. I know, that’s contradictory. But that’s literally how it feels. So many things line up & it truly seems like her being alive is the best & most concise answer to all the questions & weirdness…and yet it keeps Not. Happening. Would it be cool for them to save her return for the 100th episode (8x01)? Sure. Is that gonna happen though? I personally feel like it would have been so much easier to show her in a coda at the end of tonight’s finale so that Emily could freely film for season 8. Since they didn’t, I personally have to doubt that that is the plan. Could they wait til the end of s8 to bring her back? I suppose. But, like I said, inevitability…that’s just not happening.

So all that being said, as of this moment I’m taking a break from all things related to TWD. For my own sanity & mental health I need to do this. I can’t guarantee that I won’t reblog anything related to td in the near future, especially cause @dynamicsymmetry is organizing a cool thing…but it’ll be sort of as a ‘hey, look at all this, don’t you wish it made sense?’. Idk right now I’m feeling highkey disappointed because all we’ve ever truly wanted was ANSWERS even if she doesn’t come back & perhaps we’ll never get those either (in which case, fuck you twd and until then fuck you anyway)

ALSO I would like to say that if she never comes back my best guess is they DID intend for her to but somehow, some way, something went wrong. That’s the only explanation I have for everything that could make some modicum of sense still.

Deconstructing Snape's "Obsessive Love"

Usually, Snape’s love for Lily is discredited with the word “obsessive,” so I wanted to examine that a bit. See, I would probably describe his feelings as obsessive, but I hesitate to use that word at all because it has been thrown around as meaning “Snape never loved Lily; he was obsessed with her.”

However, if we can manage to separate the word obsessive from its context in the Snape debate–Severus is an obsessive person. It’s unlikely he ever cared about much of anything un-obsessively, whether it was potions, (Defence Against) the Dark Arts, or Lily. This is a guy who waxed poetic about “the beauty of the softly simmering cauldron with its shimmering fumes” and a million other things. Snape is…really dramatic. 

The anti-Snape rhetoric tries to fit Snape’s story into a narrative that goes like this: A guy is obsessed with a girl, but he doesn’t love her. He thinks he loves her, but really, he loves the idea of her. He doesn’t actually see her as a person; he doesn’t even really know her.

And that narrative is pretty common in real life and in fiction. It’s the basis for understanding the Manic Pixie Dream Girl trope. So it’s easy for a lot of people to say that’s all Snape’s story is. 

However, there’s no reason to believe that Severus did not see Lily as a person. They were best friends for about five years. I do not believe they could’ve been best friends without Severus truly knowing Lily–her likes, her dislikes, her dreams, her fears, her everything.

Yet simultaneously, Lily probably did represent an idea to him. To explain it very simplistically–the idea of someone who loved him and cared about him (and before that, the idea of a potential friend who could do magic). Eileen probably loved him, but she clearly neglected him, and his parents’ relationship was an unhealthy one, so Severus didn’t have much of a model of what healthy love would look like. If you’re starved for love and affection, you latch onto the first person who shows it to you. That could’ve been the basis of Snape’s feelings before he really got to know Lily. But he did get to know her.

He needed her more than she needed him, most likely–love was more freely available to her. He had no one else. His love was likely to be intense–maybe more intense than hers ever could’ve been. That’s what happens with an intense person like Severus. He was as fixated on his love of Lily as he was fixated on his hatred of James.

It’s unfortunate we have to spend so much time denying that Snape’s love was in any way obsessive in order to prove it was real. I really want to talk about Severus as an intense and obsessive person. Because he loved Lily as a friend, and it was genuine. And he also loved her obsessively, because that was his nature, and because his time as her friend was likely the only time he was happy. Because knowing her, appreciating her, valuing her only made that feeling more intense. It wasn’t an uncomplicated love, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t love.

Why I don't think Pearlmethyst works

Guys I swear I’m not trying to hate on anyone’s ship, and I won’t put this in the shipping tag. But I just had to get this off my chest:

Look I just can’t see Pearl and Amethyst getting together. There I said it. Honestly, it even annoys me a little that so many people ship them because I feel like that decreases the value of their friendship.  

Pearl, in so many ways, is like a big sister to Amethyst. After all when the Crystal Gems found her in the Kindergarten it’s implied that she was really young and took on Rose as a mother-figure. Fast forward to those years Rose and Greg were dating and we see Amethyst portrayed as a kid. It’s implied that she’s still considered very very young in gem-years. And there’s Pearl, making sure that she doesn’t get into trouble, holding her like one hold’s a rambunctious five year old. Amethyst is very much a child in Pearl’s eyes and that makes sense. After all, Pearl is centuries older than her.  

Cut to years later when Rose passes and Steven is born and we see that Pearl and Amethyst’s relationship is very strained. Pearl lost the person she loved and idolised and Amethyst lost her mother figure. We also see Amethyst grow emotionally from an adolescent to a late-teen or young adult. She’s having growing pains, challenging authority, trying to define herself. She’s challenging Pearl like a kid-sister would their older, bossy sibling. In Season 1 the majority of Pearl and Amethyst’s interactions are similar to bickering sisters who love eachother but can’t see eye to eye. Siblings who know how to get on eachother’s nerves and push eachother’s buttons because they’ve lived together for so long.  

Amethyst even hates being compared to Pearl in the same way a teen hates being compared to their older, seemingly more perfect sibling.

And yes they fuse in one episode but that does NOT mean their relationship is romantic. 

If we say fusion is just a representation of sex or romantic relationships we are severely limiting its true meaning. Fusion represents a RELATIONSHIP, both romantic and platonic. It’s about the cooperation and harmony of two different gems wether they’re romantic or not. The point of Season 1’s Giant Woman episode was to introduce fusion, and clarify that Pearl and Amethyst once had a better relationship and could possibly have one again. I think it’s really great that they chose to introduce fusion in a platonic sense first before moving into the idea that it can also be romantic. It’s a really nice evolution.

And yes Pearl has blushed occasionally in her interactions with Amethyst but a lot of people seem to forget that blushing is not always a romantic thing. In most of those interactions where she blushes Pearl is shocked or flattered, not expecting Amethyst to compliment her or make a show of affection. 

Which makes sense. Pearl is a character with extremely low self-esteem who is constantly trying to prove her worth. Of course she would be surprised when someone compliments her, of course she would be shocked and touched when Amethyst chooses to hug her. She’s a vulnerable person who doesn’t immediately expect affection from people because deep down she’s uncertain if she deserves it. Playing off these blushing interactions with Amethyst as purely romantic, I think, is far too shallow a reading of Pearl’s character.

And that leads us to On the Run, and incredibly important episode for Pearl and Amethyst’s relationship. We see the guilt and pain Amethyst has carried for most of her life as a byproduct of Homeworld’s colonisation of earth. She finally snaps and takes out her anger on Pearl who had previously been oblivious to Amethyst’s true feelings. 

But most importantly we see Pearl course-correct and take Amethyst’s feelings into account. This is the moment she stops treating amethyst like an unruly kid sibling having a temper tantrum and starts treating her like the young adult she’s mentally becoming. Not only that, but she makes an effort to see Amethyst’s point of view and sincerely apologies.

And this heart to heart ends with Amethyst hugging Pearl and Pearl hugging her back. And it doesn’t appear to be romantic at all. It’s a gesture of pure trust and understanding. 

These are two people who have struggled to get along for years, siblings torn asunder by loss who are learning to get along and be a family again. And their relationship is all the stronger for it because they understand eachother more now.

And ever since “On the Run” we’ve seen a real improvement in Amethyst and Pearl’s relationship. We’ve seen Amethyst being there for Pearl when she messed up with Garnet in the Sardonyx arc and cheering her on when she stood up to Peridot. 

We’ve seen Pearl compromising more and making an effort to understand Amethyst, supporting her when she takes the time to properly reform her body in “Reformed.”

And when they dance together at Steven’s birthday we see that they’ve each taken on elements of each other’s dance styles. 

However I don’t see this dance as romantic. Just because both Pearl and Amethyst are canon lesbians (Pearl definitely and Amethyst… maybe? I’m not actually sure about that) doesn’t mean they’re automatically attracted to each other. In fact, I think it’s better for the characters that this dance is platonic because it completes their arc.

Finally my last point has to do with Pearl’s overall character arc in the show. From what we’ve gathered in all the previous episodes we know that Pearl was considered a servant-class gem on Homeworld. Worst than that she was considered property, no better than a fancy toy or shiny accessory. 

Now Rose helped Pearl by treating her like an equal, probably teaching her how to fight, and showing her that she could rebel against the role Homeworld made her for. 

But, at the same time, Pearl gained an unhealthy attachment towards Rose, seeing herself as merely an extension of Rose Quartz and not her own person. This is why she was so willing to risk her life for Rose’s safety. She felt she didn’t matter. And, unfortunately, Pearl had a deep romantic love for Rose that I don’t think Rose ever truly reciprocated.

And then Rose passed giving birth to Steven and Pearl was left alone with no one to serve. This left a gaping hole in Pearl’s identity. 

Now keep in mind Pearl is thousands of years old and the majority of that life was spend serving Rose. She’s only been without her leader for 14 years, which to her must feel like the blink of an eye. Rose’s loss is a fresh wound for all the crystal gems, but especially Pearl. For centuries she’s defined herself by the person she served and now she doesn’t even know who she is on her own. And this, in essence, is Pearl’s arc: she needs to learn how to be her own gem.

Now I’ve heard a few people say that they think Pearl having a relationship with Amethyst will somehow help her “fix” herself, and I don’t agree in the slightest. Think about what Garnet said to Pearl in “Friend Ship” when Pearl says she feels too weak and “useless” on her own: “You are your own gem. You control your destiny.”

The LAST thing Pearl needs is to be entering into a relationship right now. That would just give her another person to attach her self-worth to. Pearl needs to learn how to stand on her own, to decide who SHE is and what SHE wants to fight for.

So yeah. All of this is my way of explaining exactly why I’m against the Pearl/Amethyst ship and why I think it’s counter-intuitive to Pearl’s character development. However I’m never gonna hate on those who do ship it just because I’m strongly against it. That’s why I’m not going to put this in the Pearlmethyst tag. I  just needed to collect my thoughts and make this post because I think Pearl and Amethyst’s friendship is really important to both their characters and should be talked about more. 

Thanks to whomever chose to read this til the end. Please don’t send me hate-mail. But if you wanted to have an intelligent discussion with me I’d be more than happy oblige. ^^
