This day on Ao3

For obvious reasons, a number of these fics is going to be christmas-themed. This one is no exception. Kind of, at least. This is the Circle’s Christmas-equivalent.

Jumanah felt the butterflies of anticipation fluttering in her stomach as she dressed up.

Golden stars in her ears to match the ones speckling her dress and the ones drawn in the corners of her eyes with glittering lines. Some might say it was a little much, but this was a special day, and while she had done this many times before, it would always be just as exciting. It was midwinter.

Most religions with some presence in places with harsh winters had some sort of midwinter holiday. This being Christmas, Hanukkah, or Yule, they all had the same basic function, to light up the dark, and for the Circle of the Dreamers’ Star, it was the Midwinter Welcoming.

From now on, my standards for the type of man I am willing to be with are my standards, they matter to me, I set them, I decide them. Some might say they are extremely high and I’m fine with this. I’m fine with being single forever if it means I won’t sacrifice my assertiveness and my well thought out standards just to say I have a man. I’m. Not. Settling. I’m not dealing with wishy washy nonsense. Mediocre things are not appealing to me anymore. I’m not excusing things that actually matter to me. I love myself so much that I refuse to put myself through unnecessary pain. I refuse and I am fully prepared for both the good and the bad that might emerge from this mindset.


ALRIGHT alright so here’s the thing that’s been bugging me for MONTHS now, and I’m talking pre-Stevenbomb 1.0. In the episode Marble Madness, when the Gems and Steven break into Peridot’s hideout beneath the Kindergarten (Facet Five), Peridot learns for the very first time that there are still Gems present on Earth.

She’s legitimately surprised because “the Red Eye” didn’t detect them. You know… THIS THING??

This comes all the way from the second episode of the series, Laser Light Cannon. But this little bit of dialogue made it clear to all of us that the Red Eye was actually sent here by Homeworld, to monitor the planet and ensure that it was safe for them to invade uninterrupted so that they could continue their work.


HOW in the FRESH HELL was the Red Eye unable to detect ANY kind of Gem presence when the Gems’ first solution to trying take it out was to do… THIS??
