that is what marble is for

remember back in warp tour when the cgs expressed legitimate fear and concern over a homeworld gem arriving on earth, enough for garnet to smash the galaxy warp to prevent peridot from coming back

this was then followed up by marble madness, an entire episode dedicated to the crystal gems trying to find out more about this gem and her purpose and what it entails

remember the message? you know, the episode where lapis informed the cgs about peridot returning to earth— and how she wasn’t alone? which then led directly into political power and the return, where the cgs were scared and actively trying to find a way to fight back against these gems, these gems who they had no idea what were capable of?


and now it’s been really, really, really heavily implied that the diamonds, who the gems full well know what are capable of, are coming to earth some time soon:

or, at the very least, sending more gems under their command to earth. 

and this is never mentioned after the stevenbomb. if the prospect of a peridot and a jasper coming to earth is terrifying and merits several episodes of our protags preparing for a confrontation against them, then shouldn’t the prospect of the diamonds, the designated big bads, coming to earth be much more so? and yet no one is preparing this time around, no fears and doubts are expressed, nothing. the whole arc itself just seems…well, disconnected from the rest of the series as a result.

anonymous asked:

what do you think of when you hear the name "daphne"?

marble statues, a smile that can melt hearts, going to art museums, cherry blossoms, being young and in love, soft hair, summers spent in the south of france, golden light touching your skin

please don’t send in any more names, i’m just finishing the ones in my ask box! 💗

Finishing that SWTOR meme because I can: 2-4

2. What is your favorite class and why? And/or list the player classes in order of most -> least favorite

Favorite? Sith Warrior or Imperial Agent. I like Sith Warrior’s gameplay much more. If I had to rank them, taking into account both story and gameplay…

  1. Sith Warrior
  2. Imperial Agent
  3. Jedi Knight
  4. Sith Inquisitor
  5. Trooper
  6. Consular
  7. Smuggler
  8. Bounty Hunter (never got the hang of that)

3. Do you prefer to tank, DPS, or heal?

DPS, though my brief thrilling tank career when our PUG tank got thrown off a bridge was pretty great. I couldn’t find a freaking wall so I just kept turning the boss around, letting him toss me to one end of the bridge, turning him around…the healer probably thought I’d lost my marbles.

I’m better at DPS.

4. What is your favorite player combat ability? 

Force Kick, Jedi Guardian. Just this incredible spin kick. It looks great. Runners-up (I haven’t played in over a year so I don’t know how many of these still exist:

  • Dirty Kick
  • Orbital Bombardment
  • Rocket Punch
  • Force Lightning Dance Party
  • That kolto probe that triggers that creepy chuckle
  • Ravage
  • Ion Charge/Shot/Whatever That Was (railgun?)

sonya had been wandering the gardens, attempting to escape the stifling decadence of the parisian accommodations to little avail. filled with longing for rolling green fields and the sharp slope of mountains, the bright colour of exotic flowers seemed artificial, a callback to the ornate and dark rooms she had felt confined by since the moment she arrived in paris. maybe since she’d arrived in denmark after a lifetime in the russian countryside, what felt like a million years ago. as she half admired a marble bust, she heard the other person approaching. sparing a glance over her shoulder, she offered a vague smile before returning her attention to the statue.  “it’s a lot, no?” 

@matildaswan replied to your post “i don’t believe there has ever been a day on earth when jemma redgrave…”

even when she looks like she’s channeling the vibe of a drunk racoon that can’t handle cold weather she still looks like a fucking valkyrie with a face carved from marble like h o w i S sHe eV En r e A L ? ! ?@ 1?!

im dying this is my fucking aesthetic

vantablack
  • [stuart semple, covered in vivid pink, yellow, and green powder staggers up a seemingly infinite number of steps toward the top of a marble pyramid upon which rests his coveted prize]
  • [he reaches the top, gasping for air. in the middle of the pedestal at the top of the pyramid there is a gaping black hole, endlessly deep.]
  • stuart semple, quietly: what is this
  • [sir anish kapoor, from the bottom of the pyramid lifts his head and gazes upward at semple's back. his face is also covered in pink, green, and yellow. it is unclear how he heard semple's voice from so far away]
  • anish kapoor: it is what you seek
  • semple: it's so
  • sir anish kapoor: beautiful, yes
  • semple, turning his head just enough to look at anish over one shoulder: your reign of tyranny is over, kapoor. youve underestimated me for the last time. i will take the vantablack you so selfishly stole from us and return it to its place in the hands of the people.
  • sir anish kapoor: youre a fool, semple. stop this madness now before it's too late. you know not the dangerous powers with which you toy
  • semple, turning back to face the void: you cannot deceive me, your ploys won't work
  • [semple extends his hands, long pale fingers hovering inches from the inky darkness, hesitating]
  • sir anish kapoor: stuart, no!
  • [semple's hand shoots forward and collides with the vantablack. instantly the void envelops his arm, then his whole body. semple's screams of agony are swallowed in the crushing silence of vantablack and soon the pyramid and sir anish kapoor are also devoured.]
  • semple: ...where are we?
  • sir anish kapoor: we are unstuck from time and space, trapped in a nanotechnological purgatory
  • [stuart semple's lips have been replaced with photorealistic magazine cutouts of other people's mouths, stop-motion flickering through each syllable, none truly belonging to him]
  • semple: how,, how could this have happened?
  • anish, whose entire being has been replaced by a series of clockwork cogs and a single, unblinking eye: you toyed with dangers beyond your imaging stuart. reality itself has been pulled into the vantablack. soon, the whole world will know the void as we do
  • semple, sobbing into his hands which have become splotches of warmth on a heat-vision screen, his body dissolving into salt and sand: i-i didnt know...... how do i stop it?
  • sir anish kapoor, his gears turning and clicking ever faster: the same way you stop a galaxy from expanding, a star from collapsing. the same way you stop human avarice and pride, from one man coveting what belongs to another.
  • semple, weeping: please,,, please tell me
  • [sir anish kapoor's cogs begin to break apart, dividing like so many cells into the vast abyssal plane]
  • [semple, wrought with grief and desperation reaches out to grasp at the eye, which has begun to shrink and disintegrate at the edges. the eye pulses with one last surge of warmth. is it sympathy? is it love? the eye disappears and reality along with it.]

OKAY I’D LIKE TO TALK ABOUT HOW YUURI IS BREAKDANCING?

okay like, b-boying is a thing in japan, definitely. but it’s not really a sleepy vacation town thing. it’s mostly popular around tokyo. so what i’m thinking… is that yuuri probably learned how to breakdance while he was living in detroit.

(which means phichit probably also knows how to do this. i bet they learned together.)

idk i just thought that was neat, even if it’s not true. then HELLO? YUURI CAN B-BOY WITH THE BEST OF THEM? LOOK AT HIS BALANCE? HE’S DRUNK HOW IS HE DOING THIS? and on that marble tile floor too….
