I was tagged by @lediona25, thanks darling!

1. Who would you most like to meet (dead or alive)? Why?

As a surprise to absolutely no one, I would like to meet Harry Styles. I could have chosen someone cool that’s been dead for a hundred years but honestly, I would pick Harry over everyone? Why? Because I love him a lot and it would make my life better. If I ever do meet him, a selfie would be the least of my worries. I would like to thank him for being an inspiration. For being so generous and kind to everyone around him. For how he makes me and so many others feel comfortable and proud. Feel good and warm and safe. He cheers me up, he makes me smile. I would love to make him smile at least one time as well.

2. What is your favourite fic of all time?

Well it’s a tie actually between Love is a Rebellious Bird and Wild And Unruly. For different reasons, but also the same. gloriaandrews and 100percentsassy have the ability to create these universes that are so… complete? I love how they describe and incorporate things about the surroundings in a way that makes you feel like you’re there. I see ranch the Lonely Rose when I close my eyes, I hear violins. Their character description is so on point, WAU Harry???? LIARB Louis????????? Honestly, the characters are so multifaceted and interesting. The plot is so well thought of and worked out, every detail has its significance and adds to the general feel of the fic, LIARB hurts in the best way, WAU is warm and feels like coming home. Also what I always like about a fic is when the tension between them is on point, and OH MAN. Both of these fics deliver. The sexual tension but also the emotional connection that evolves over time, RIP ME. Some scenes will forever stick with me. My favorite is the scene where Harry asks Louis to dance with him in WAU. Even thinking about it takes my breath away. I can talk about these fics for at least an hour each fijsdifj, please come talk to me whenever you want.

3. What is your earliest memory?

My earliest memory is a dream that I had. I remember getting eaten by Big Bird. sdjfisdjf. I remember so many details of this dream. Me and my brother were jumping on my parent’s bed, but at one point we had to jump entirely over it in one leap, or we would get eaten. And well, it was impossible, so “in” we went. It’s hard to think of my earliest ‘real’ memory, because there are so many pictures and videos out there from when I was a kid that I feel like I don’t know what’s a ‘real’ memory and what I ‘remember’ from these pictures and videos. But i’m fairly certain my Big Bird dream wasn’t caught on tape ;)

4. What is the best lie you’ve told to get out of work/uni?

I don’t remember, I never really had to lie? 

5. What is your mental age?

I will always be a mix between a 9, a 17, a 28, a 45 and a 70 year old.

6. What’s on your perfect pizza?

You can’t ask pizza questions on sifjisdjfis
It differs, sometimes i’m more in a vegetable kind of mood (mushrooms please!), sometimes meat (salami or ham)

7. If you had to be named after a city, country, etc., which one would you choose and why?

How hard? I am not creative enough to answer these questions. 

8. If you joined the circus, which act would you perform?

??? Nothing acrobatic, that’s for sure.

9. What is your favourite season?

Hmmm. I would like to say summer, because that’s when I’m mostly outside and so is everyone?? There is always lots to do in the summer, and I love swimming and drinking something on a terrace.

10. Do you prefer writing in pen/pencil, print/cursive?

Pen, although I don’t like writing, because my handwriting has gotten progressively worse over the years.

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.

This episode for me really highlighted and then in its dramatic finale brought to an extreme the use of perspective that Rebecca Sugar has often talked about during panels. In her rare appearances, we are almost always looking up at Rose Quartz, or she is leaning down and over our POV - be it Pearl kneeling before her hologram in Rose’s Scabbard

or Greg on a number of occasions during the early days of their relationship (We Need To Talk is a really interesting watch with regards to camera angles and how they change - Greg literally climbs a stack of crates during his attempt at communication and, well, seeing eye to eye)

or Garnet after her fateful fall in The Answer

or, hey, Buddy Buddwick collapsed in the desert in Buddy’s Book

She even has magical floating powers. It all fits, of course, with the entire running theme of the (unattainable/unmaintainable) pedestal. And even when she is not directly present, and even when it’s not the focus of the shot, her portrait can be seen overlooking the familiar setting of the beach house.

Like hell the red lion is gonna let keith go so easily

bonus: black paladin, out. *throws double peace signs*
