the guardian stones

Time flies

The MCU doesn’t feel that old but then you realize, next year makes a decade.

Tom Holland, who plays Spiderman, was only 11 when the first Iron Man came out and was only 15 by the time of the first Avengers (the first appearance of Thanos).

At the time, he wasn’t involved yet nor did he know he would be. Next year in 2018, he’ll be facing Thanos along with many others

Imagine that. Watching a superhero film as a teen and seeing the first appearance of a supervillain, having no idea that several years down the line, you’ll literally be fighting them.

Heimdall IS The SOUL STONE

There has been a theory going around for quite some time about Heimdall and how he possesses the final Infinity Stone, the Soul Stone. Well, it’s a good theory and all, but after watching the Thor: Ragnarök trailer, I came up with a better Heimdall/Soul Stone theory that will most likely end up being true.

My theory is that since the Soul stone takes on a mind of its own in the comics, and since Adam Warlock now most likely won’t have it, that Heimdall IS the Soul Stone.

Like all Infinity Stones, they were scattered across the universe, but the Soul Stone developed a mind of its own, its very own soul. After some time, it created a body for itself, like, an artificial intelligence (Ultron, Vision) building its own body.The body itself is the Soul Stone, and that is Heimdall. The stone won’t appear on Earth in Black Panther or Spider-Man, it’ll appear in Thor: Ragnarök when Heimdall is on his own and discovers what he truly is.

It would explain why he’s capable of seeing every living being in the universe, why he’s so powerful, and why Odin kept him close (if Odin ever knew). It would also explain why he has Orange eyes, the Soul Stone’s color in the MCU, when no other Asgardian or alien has them. It would also be a huge twist that fans won’t see coming. It was right in front of them the whole damn time.

Привет, пончики! :зз

i`m back again with charming Hawke`s companions this time! truth be told, it was a bit difficult for me to find proper gifs (in my opinion) for DA2 dudes. maybe because i love Origins` dorks too much

this, however, does not take away from the fact that Varric`s chest hair still makes me crazy (¬‿¬)

“Before creation itself, there were six singularities. Then the universe exploded into existence, and the remnants of these systems were forged into concentrated ingots. Infinity Stones.

These stones, it seems, can only be brandished by beings of extraordinary strength. These carriers can use the stone to mow down entire civilizations like wheat in a field. Once, for a moment, a group was able to share the energy amongst themselves, but even they were quickly destroyed by it.”

- The Collector in Guardians of the Galaxy

Idk but I think about this a lot: What if in GOTG, during the scene where everyone was holding each other's hands trying to contain the infinity stone's powers, Rocket reaches out for Groot, but remembers he's gone, and instead, one of Groot's twigs flies by in the debris and Rocket grabs it so they are all together in what was perceived to be their final moments. And then it explains how Groot survives, because the infinity stone's powers gave him life again?

there are just…so many levels of logic and genius and emotion to this that I need to stare at a wall and reflect on my entire life holy shit

bonus:

A while ago I asked for help choosing between two different Triforce design options. Here is the winner! This one received over 2/3 of the vote, but what actually solidified my decision was the comments some of you left explaining your choice.

People in both sides argued that their preferred design “fit” better, but this one was called more “elegant, sleek, and elven”. A few people made comparisons to visual similarities to the guardian spirits/spiritual stones. Several others pointed out that the arrows guide the eye toward the rest of the panel – I didn’t even realize at the time that there were other arrows nearby in the applique design.

I’m a pretty introverted person and I spend most of my time working alone in my workshop, which is how I like it. But sometimes I miss working alongside other artists and bouncing ideas off of each other. Thank you all for the thoughtful feedback – I’m positive we made the right choice!

SPOILERS BELOW

Okay, so some SU episode information/clips have been leaked so I’m gonna do what I do best and add a nice dose of analysis to the pile. Let’s get started!

Aquamarine

Aquamarine looks like a small fairy or sprite creature, and is the smallest Gem to date (although, as we’ve learned before, size is not always indicative of strength).

Aquamarine can be called a ‘secretary stone’, aiding in peer-to-peer communication and rapid decision making. It can hold guilt and negative feelings within that can cause a wearer to act out in unexpected ways (think of an intern or secretary who gets pushed a little too far). This gem can help the user create intricate plans and to always be prepared.

Above all, this gem is known as the gem of force, but not physical force. Aquamarine enjoys an infamous legacy of being a cunning, blackmailing stone that can easily corrupt its wearer if not combined with a cleansing quartz or other soothestone. Aquamarine holds lots of knowledge, and with that, power. This stone is a reminder that not all evil things are physical.

Aquamarine loses its color if overheated and will melt under applied pressure.

As for SU design, Aquamarine is small, with a pair of gossamer wings that vaguely resemble Lapis Lazuli’s (if they are also made of water is yet to be seen).

The most interesting part about Aquamarine’s design is her Gem placement. Her teardrop shaped Gem (another trait shared with Lapis) is placed underneath her left eye, resembling a flowing tear.

In prison, a teardrop tattoo under your left eye means you have murdered someone in cold blood.

Topaz

Topaz is a fusion (of two Topaz Gems or a more complex fusion remains to be seen), and thus is a good deal taller than the other Gems. This Topaz is an orange/brown Topaz, not a Blue Topaz (the distinction is important, I promise).

Topaz is a guardian stone, able to repel internal evils and keep external ones at bay. Topaz is simple, but has very clear do’s and don’ts in regards to spirituality. It can calm angry spirits, cleanse a guilty mind, and will take matters into its own hands if need be.

Although it protects from feelings of greed, Topaz is covetous and will often have a proclivity towards hunger or collecting objects. Sucking on a Topaz before a meal is said to enhance its flavor.

Physically, Topaz fades under direct light and cracks easily under direct force or pressure.

Topaz in the show is tall, broad, and appears to be a Gem of few words. Again, as a fusion we don’t really know her history or unfused components, but her ability to hold people inside her body seems to be unique to her. She and Aquamarine are probably acting as a brains/brawn duo, but from Topaz’s properties as a stone she may be more than meets the eye.
