Something New (Jaspvid)

(A/N: I didn’t see any Camp Camp Steven Universe AU fics, so I decided to make my own. This is with Young David as Ruby and Jasper as Sapphire.)

“What in the hooey was that?!”

Davey proclaims as he paces around the fire they had made from twigs. Jasper continues to throw twigs into the fire, hoping that the small amount of wood would be enough to keep burning through the night.

“What were we?”

Davey stares at the bright red gem implanted into his left hand like it had been all his life. But, for the first time, it felt weird. Almost wrong.

“Did you not like it?“

“No” Davey refutes immediately with a harsh tone as his head snaps towards Jasper, who’s huddled into a fetal position. Jasper curls up into a tighter ball-the color of his pastel blue skin seeming darker than normal.

Guilt starts to run through Davey’s veins.

“No” he repeats in a soft, gentle voice as he sits himself down next Jasper.

“I kind of liked it?”

Davey says, confused at his own words. Everything just seemed confusing at the moment.

“It’s just that” Davey starts, trying to articulate his feelings into words “I’ve been so used to becoming bigger versions of myself. But what we were was…”

“Strange, yet familiar”

Jasper adds as he slowly uncurls from the ball. Davey stares into Jasper’s ocean blue eyes tinged in a bright orange, reflecting the colors of the fire. They’re stunning.

“Yeah”

A silence overtakes them with the only sound being the crackling of fire.

“Do you want to do it again?”

Jasper asks-his voice soft, but clear. Davey nods his head slowly and Jasper grins widely, making Davey’s heart skip a beat.

He grabs onto Davey’s hand and pulls them both to their feet.

Davey can feel their gems touching each other in between interlocked fingers.There’s a glaring contrast between the blood red and pastel blue skin, but it felt so right. His other hand is placed onto Jasper’s shoulder and Davey can feel Jasper’s hand move to rest on his hip.

Jasper steps forward and Davey steps backward, stumbling slightly. Davey shyly smiles at Jasper and Jasper responds with a reassuring look. After a few steps, they begin to become used to it. Creating a sort of pattern. Jasper spins Davey around and they both giggle loudly.

And all of sudden Davey starts to feel warm. A comfortable sort of warmth. Something he couldn’t put in words. But he felt an immense amount of joy and happiness. He’s sure that he knew exactly what Jasper was thinking and Jasper knew exactly what he was thinking. It was like they know each other completely, inside out. And that their feelings were one and the same.

A bright light overtakes the both of them as they slowly merge into something entirely new.

anonymous asked:

Do you think that before Flynn stole the mothership he tracked Lucy down at all? I'm sure he would have been curious about the mysterious professor who wrote his journal-from-the-future. So I can picture him finding her at her university and attending one of her lectures or something. What are your thoughts?

Oh, my god, Anon. My thoughts are I have had these EXACT THOUGHTS!

He DEFINITELY looked her up before the series starts! No doubt. None. Erase all doubt from your mind. We don’t know the degree of it. Maybe Flynn searched online for information about her. Maybe he read one of her books (a history book– not the sad, handwritten one). Maybe, yes, he even sat in the back of at least one lecture. We don’t know how far he went researching her (he’s an intelligence gathering special agent and this could actually be quite in depth– he has her tax returns), but we do know that Flynn looked Lucy up in the present day before setting his plan in motion.

And it all sounds like an interesting little possibility and fan theory, one more connection Flynn and Lucy have before even meeting face to face, but the logical part of our brain is still like, “Proof?”

How about the fact that, in the Pilot, he knew what she looked like? Yeah. Once you realize Flynn picked her out of a frantic crowd at night in front of an explosion, it hits you: “How did he know her face?” Lucy can write her entire life story in that journal. Flynn can know her mind as well as she knows herself. But unless Lucy included a photograph, he would not know her to see her. He’d pass her on the street. Conclusion: either through research or because he staked her out (attended one of her classes), Flynn was familiar with what Lucy looked like prior to meeting her in 1937.

Now, you can argue the above. You could say that one brief, mid-episode snippet is the real first time Flynn sees her. The part when he’s watching the three be arrested after he called in that tip on them.

BUT! he is very, very far away. And he’s not even the one looking through the binoculars when it happens. 

He certainly can’t make out her face. And would he really approach her later with his biggest identifier being that she had on a brown coat? Why would he WANT to leave it up to chance? Why would he risk not knowing what Lucy looks like before going into the past where he knows he’s going to run into her? I really don’t think he would.

Also (just mentioning) Flynn’s guy that Wyatt kills in the hangar knew who Lucy was, and I’m not sure what to make of it. Flynn did brief his men about her though. We know that. Because after realizing who she was (whether because Flynn passed around a picture of her or because he said she’d be the woman following them), the man said, “Flynn wants to talk to you.” So Flynn made certain his men knew who Lucy was and that, if found, she should be brought to him, presumably unharmed.

I really think it makes sense that Flynn looked her up beforehand. It makes more sense than him not doing it. Checking up on Lucy just fits Flynn’s character. Not only for curiosity’s sake, but because Flynn won’t be caught unaware again. After Rittenhouse and his family, Flynn researches, he double-checks. The man has become obsessively prepared. It’s like a compulsion he now has. He needs that sense of control so much he doesn’t even delegate unless he has to. He trusts no one. He does everything himself. He’s paranoid something will go wrong. So many episodes, he has to check the journal before allowing himself to act. Even in 1.12, he pulled it out and studied the drawing before approaching Emma’s cabin. He looks before he leaps, and you can’t tell me that doesn’t include investigating Lucy before thrusting them into the situation where they meet. He would want to know her first, familiarize himself a little better.

So yes, he looked her up before stealing the Mothership. Fight me.
