Some Thoughts: Navy, the Ruby Squad, and what it holds for the Crystal Gems

Anonymous said:
If you’ve seem “Room For Ruby”, what are your your thoughts on Navy now?

Now that we know the whole truth, it’s debatable whether Steven was copying Navy’s mannerisms– 

or Navy was copying Steven’s.

In fact, now that we know the whole truth, it’s a little difficult not to put context into the things Navy was saying.

“All the other Rubies are mean to me. I just want to be somewhere where I can be myself.”

“It’s almost like, it’s always changing!”

In hindsight, it’s worth noting that these words are exactly what the Crystal Gems would have wanted to hear from her: Earth as a place where things can change, where gems can grow and be who they want to be. I raised an eyebrow when she talked about the other Rubies’ being mean to her because when we analyse their dynamics it seems rather farfetched that Navy would declare she felt this way. 

To me, this indicates there’s more than meets the eye in this episode. A lot of moments felt very discordant with how we expected things to play out, not only with Navy, but also with the Crystal Gems and how they were acting. 

I think this episode holds some implications for how the Ruby Squad operates as well as what it’ll be like when we see the Rubies next time. Given that, let’s get to it.

1. We don’t give the Rubies enough credit

When last we saw them, the Ruby Squad, they were almost successfully ambling towards each other in Adventures in Light Distortion. That means upon getting tossed into outer space, they individually decided that they had to get back to one another. 

In Room for Ruby, we find out that all along, Navy’s goal was to get back the Ruby Ship. Somewhere up in space, either she or the Squad put together a plan with several contingencies. And getting their ship back is a smart move for the Rubies because they’re currently adrift in space with no means of propulsion. Getting the ship back would be the fastest way to reconvene and regroup. 

At the heart of it, we can’t forget that Rubies are soldiers. That means they’re trained to survive in the most chaotic circumstances. In those moments, it’s doubtful that another gem will be present and serving as commander, which is why it’s significant that Doc is the clear-cut leader. 

Meanwhile, it’s become a bit of an inside joke that nobody trusts Rubies to do anything right in the show, everyone says as much, “Man, Rubies are dumb.”  It’s odd then that the exact opposite is being done. Rubies are trusted with their own missions. If they weren’t to be trusted at all, then another gem would be coming along to supervise.

It’s believable that a single Ruby could serve as guard to a gem as rare and important as Sapphire, both in The Answer, and even in the modern Gem Heist. In both cases, there is no other gem making sure the Rubies get the job done. 

These instances stand in sharp contrast to Holly Blue’s role in the lives of the Famethyst, gems perceived to be of much higher standing than Rubies. Their being Earth gems plays a factor in this infantilisation, but the Rubies aren’t just innocuous foot soldiers either.

As mentioned, they’re trained to survive, and that requires a certain degree of autonomy and resourcefulness, training and preparing. Homeworld trusts them to go on missions successfully, and it’s no surprise that the Rubies expected to successfully complete their Earth mission. 

Rubies aren’t innocuous. Eyeball knew exactly how to approach meeting Rose Quartz; she went for the kill the moment it was confirmed. Navy planned exactly how to deceive the Crystal Gems. 

That Garnet saw it as a possibility prior to the end of the episode means hearkens back to how her future vision works. Garnet explores paths that she feels are within the realm of plausibility. That’s why she didn’t see Pearl’s deception in Cry for Help, because she found the idea too implausible to entertain and explore. But Garnet herself said “Not all of them” in response to the idea that “Rubies are dumb.” She would know firsthand that there’s more to a Ruby than the bumbling outer appearance.

@thelightwithinthedark said:
What can you say about Garnets monotone reaction when Navy stole the Ruby ship?

While I don’t think “monotone” was the most accurate way to describe Garnet’s reaction when she realised Navy deceived all of them, I do agree that there seemed to be a lack of concern now that a potentially dangerous group of gems now has access to a reality-bending ship. 

It appears she is either running through some possibilities or she doesn’t see this as a huge setback or threat for the CGs. These aren’t mutually exclusive, but that they aren’t jumping to action could also be indicative of their knowing that they don’t have the resources to go after said reality-bending ship. Garnet isn’t the type to openly worry, and from her standpoint, there is nothing they can do, unless at one point someone placed a tracking device on the ship. So worrying wouldn’t have done anything and preparations for the future don’t have to be done immediately.

And I feel that fits in perfectly with the theme of the show, which always says not to judge or presume things about other individuals. It was easy to label the Rubies as adorable and ‘smol’ and therefore harmless; just as it was initially easy for many to paint Jasper as filled with bloodlust. It’s consistent that the Rubies, initially portrayed as comic relief in Hit the Diamond, would have a lot more going underneath.

They are a cohesive unit that trusts one another and trains future Rubies. Earth wasn’t their first mission and they’re determined not to make it their last. They have all the skills a resource-deprived civilisation can equip them with so that more resources aren’t wasted. And I’ll be talking about those special set of skills next.

Anonymous Request: “Angel with a Shotgun” by The Cab for BTS (All)

Song: “Angel with a Shotgun” by The Cab

A/N: So after listening to this song a couple dozen times to engrave it into my brain, the things I do for you guys this is the situation I best believe fits the song. It’s the one that kept coming to mind while staring at the lyrics.

Warnings: Mentions of drugs, drug abuse, and addiction.

Seokjin (Jin)

“Y-yah!” Seokjin stuttered. You looked up from your place on your disheveled bed, curled in on your small frame, a sheen of sweat covering your forehead. His backpack hit the floor with a thud, brows pinched together, his eyes taking in the scene before him. He padded his way over to sit beside you on the bed, eyes roaming over your body. He glanced over to the bedside table, his expression hardening when he took in the needle and clean spoon beside your lamp.

“You told me you stopped.” Seokjin’s voice was harsh, accusation making you wince. Your breathing labored, you could feel your heartbeat in your too-dry throat. You swallowed thickly.

“I haven’t in 3 days.” Your voice was small and you barely recognized it as your own. You felt bile rise in your throat and, ignoring the ache that protested in your bones, you moved to the opposite side of the bed, where you hid a small trash can and began vomiting the empty contents of your stomach. You wiped your mouth slowly, unable to meet Seokjin’s concerned yet hard gaze.

He began rubbing soothing circles across the expanse of your drenched back, and you flinched at the contact, goosebumps rising on your arms. You cradled your legs to your chest and rested your forehead on your knees in an attempt to ground your spinning world.

“(Y/N)…” You screwed your eyes tight at his softened tone, knowing you didn’t deserve it. You had deceived him. Outright lied to his face that you had stopped using, only because you couldn’t come to terms with not anymore. You shook your head slowly.

“I can’t do it,” you breathed. Tears stung at your eyes despite your best efforts.

“Yes, you can,” Seokjin’s words wavered, emotion distorting his voice. “I’m right here, (Y/N). I can help you through this.”

Yoongi (Suga)

“What the fuck?” Yoongi’s outburst wasn’t what you expected when he came in, but you couldn’t seem to find it in yourself to be mad. You smiled lazily at him from your laid out position on the couch.

“Oh, hey Yoongs,” your smile momentarily faltered as he made his way to the kitchen window and unlatched it, pushing it up hastily. 

“Don’t you fucking call me that. Not right now. What the fuck is wrong with you?” His emphasis on the last three words were meant to sting, meant to be harsh to drive his point across.

“Oh, come on. Don’t be a buzz kill,” you whined, throwing your arms up in the air. You contemplated your fingers for a moment, focusing on how they moved and smiled at them, for no other reason than that you had them.

Yoongi rolled his eyes and let out an exasperated sigh. “I told you,” he all but growled. “I don’t care if you smoke, just don’t do it here. I can’t stand the smell of it. And now you’ve filled my entire house with it.” He quickly stalked past you and opened the screen porch, the cool night air hitting your face, and you smiled at the feeling.

“(Y/N).” There it was. A warning. This wasn’t your first fight like this. Ever since Yoongi found out about your habit, he had taken to staying away from you when he knew you would be partaking in it.

“Fine. FINE.” you snapped, picking up your jacket you had half-hazardly discarded when you got to his house, and making your way towards the door. You placed you hand on the doorknob before you felt  his long fingers around your elbow.

“Where do you think you’re going? You can’t leave the house like this!” Yoongi eyed you like you had lost your mind, the part that wasn’t completely filled with smoke.

A snort left you before you could reign it in and you jerked your elbow out of his grasp. “I’m not stupid, Yoongi. I know what state I’m in. I’m just going to sit in my car to enjoy some peace and quiet.”

He ran a hand through his dark locks and sighed. “Look, (Y/N), you know I support you 200% in anything you do. Just not this.” His eyes pleaded with you to understand, and most of the time you did. He came from an industry where drugs were rampant, so to come home to his better half in the same toked out boat they were sent him over the edge.

After a moment of stale silence, you sighed. Your eyes softened through the haze and you bit your lip. “I’ll do better. I won’t make promises, but I’ll try.”

Warning: Mentions of childhood trauma.

Hoseok (J-Hope)

“Again?” Hoseok’s voice was deathly quiet, a stark difference from the normal, excited screaming you were accustomed to. You lolled your head on the back of the couch, and gave a lazy smile.

“Ding, ding, ding,” you tapped the tip of your nose with each word and giggled.

Hoseok licked his lips and looked away from you, gathering his thoughts. You moved your toes against the carpet, enjoying the buzz in your head. Your limbs felt like they weighed a ton, your head too heavy to hold up.

Hoseok sighed and looked back at you, eyes full of dejection. “Why do you drink?”

It was a loaded question, one you weren’t mentally prepared to answer, not with the state you were in. You could barely string a coherent sentence together, let alone tell him your entire childhood had been one giant nightmare, the visions coming to haunt you even in your sleep.

You licked your lips, your throat suddenly dry. “Let’s talk about that another time,” you slurred. You stood on your knees, wobbling on the couch, and tried to straddle Hoseok’s lap without completely falling off. He held his arms open, an open invitation for you, never one to deny cuddling. As you finally got settled, he rested his large hands on the upper part of your thighs, rubbing soothing circles with his thumb.

“No more.” It came out more as a plea, Hoseok’s voice sounding small, unable to meet your blown pupils. “I can help you. We can work through whatever this is, together. Just know I’m here when you’re ready to tell me.”

Namjoon (Rap Monster)

“What does it feel like?” Namjoon sat across from you, elbows on his knees, long fingers knitted together. You scrunched your nose at being questioned, never one for talking about your hobbies or your feelings, and definitely not when the two of them were together.

You shrugged your shoulders, a noncommittal answer. When his gaze remained unfaltered, you sighed. “It feels like….” You struggled to find the right words to describe the feeling. “Amazing? Like the best sex you’ve ever had, but the intensity of it in only five minutes, and every fuck after that is nowhere near the same,” you tried, hoping it got the point across.

Namjoon raised an eyebrow at you, and you squirmed under his gaze. “So why do you continue to do it, if it’s not as good as the first time?” he asked, eyeing your face for any signs of discomfort. You shrugged again, and this time it seemed to satisfy him, finding the answer he needed in your lack of words.

“Mm,” he nodded, leaning back on the La-Z-Boy he was seated in. “Are there any alternatives you could do, instead of it, to get the same high?” He paused for a moment, then added “Like working out or sky diving or something?”

Your brow furrowed at this, the thought of trying something new crossing your mind, just not in the way he was asking. You shook your head no.

He sighed and ran a strong hand through his hair. “Look, (Y/N), I’m not one to judge; we all have our different ways to relax. But this isn’t healthy for you. And if we have any kind of future together, which I sincerely hope we do, I urge you to stop this while you can. If you need me, I’m here, baby. Just say the word.”

Taehyung (V)

Jagiya,” Taehyung’s deep voice called out to you, and you giggled at the way the words rolled off his tongue. He furrowed his brows at you and continued. “Are you okay? You’re acting strange.”

You shrugged your shoulders , chin resting on your hands, placed on his chest. “What’s so strange?” The question came out almost slurred. You looked up to him from your place in between his legs on the couch, the sound of his heartbeat loud and welcome in your ear. You played idly with a string from his shirt and waited for his response.

“You smell difgerent. Like….drugs or something,” Taehyung’s nose scrunched at his words, and he looked down to you, red hair falling into his eyes. He held you close, strong arms surrounding you, placed on your delicate shoulders and you felt like you could conquer the world in this moment. “Did you take something before you came over?” 

“Yeah,” Your answer was immediate, and you regretted it leaving without your consent. Your smile disappeared as you looked back up to Taehyung, his eyes studying your face.

“Does it make you happy?” His question caught you of guard and you fisted your hands in his shirt.

“Sometimes,” you answered honestly. At this point, you had no reason to lie. He pondered your answer for what seemed like an eternity. When the silence became too deafening, you sat up and straddled his lap, hands on either sides of his chest. You placed your forehead against his, his breath ghosting on your lips. “But you make me happier.”

A small smile bunched up his cheeks, as you placed gentle kisses along his jawline and neck. “Will you tell me if it gets bad?” Taehyung wondered, and you brought your attention back to his eyes, laced with quiet concern.

You nuzzled your lips into the crook of his neck, taking in his comforting scent. “Of course,” you breathed against the soft skin of his neck.

“You lied to me!” Jimin’s voice could be heard well into the dorms, and you tried frantically to lower his voice. “You told me you stopped. Why did you lie?” The last question came out as a broken whisper, something that shattered your pounding heart.

“Jimin I-I’m sorry.” You placed your arms on his shirt, but he pushed your hands away. You panicked. “I couldn’t get it out of my head. It was so hard to do just everyday things. So I thought, just one hit, just one high and I would call it quits.” your desperate excuse only seemed to make him angrier.

“(Y/N), I told you, it was me or the drug. I will not compete for your happiness.” His breathed, a now quiet rage seething behind his harsh stare. Your eyes widened at how serious he was, that his threat was very real.

“Jimin, please. I need time, this isn’t something I can do on my own.” Your begging sounded weak, even to your ears but you knew it was the truth. His expression softened the tiniest bit, and he looked down at the ground.

When he looked back up to meet your gaze, you knew this was your last shot. “Fine, (Y/N).” he sighed. His small yet reassuring hands came up to rest on your sides. “No more. This is your last chance. I’ll help you as much as I can, but I need you to try too.”

Jeongguk (Jungkook)

You heard a loud thud of something tumbling to the floor before you saw it. The noise brought you out of your counting, attention snapping immidiately to the sound.

“(Y/N)…?” The utter shock in Jeongguk’s voice rang high in your head. You hadn’t expected him to be over so soon, surprising you early with takeout food and your favorite movie thst now layed across your floor.

Your arms flew out over the table, a feeble attempt to cover your biggest secret up. “I-I can explain,” You stammered over the copious amount of pills spilled out from the bottle on your coffee table. You swallowed, the noise louder in the silence that sat between you two.

Jeongguk’s eyes took in the scene before him, huge doe-like orbs displaying every emotion he was feeling. “What is this?” What are all those?”

“Don’t worry about it, Kookie; it’s nothing,” a nervous laugh forced its way out as you tried hastily shoving the pills back into the bottle. In your haste, pills scattered to the floor, and Jeongguk was quick to retrieve the bottle while you were on the floor snatching them up.

“You’re taking Xanax and you didn’t tell me? What even for?” Jeongguk spit the word out like poison on his tongue, and you flinched at the question. You stood back up and snatched the bottle from his hands, sure not to make eye contact with him.

“Nothing, Jeongguk, I said don’t worry about it.“ you snapped, screwing the lid shut. Jeongguk snatched your wrist and forced your chin to look at him, one strong finger under your chin.

“(Y/N), if there’s something going on, you need to tell me. If something is hurting you into taking something like that, something you shouldn’t even have access to, then I want to know.” His grip on your arms softened  as did his eyes. “I love you, (Y/N) and I want to help you overcome whatever this may be.”

Honestly the most accurate reaction video ever made

Recovery Day #1481

So my results came back as positive for celiac disease.
I have another test in 3 weeks, and until then I have to eat least the equivelant of 2 slices of bread in gluten consistently to get the most accurate reading of how severe my reaction is.
Regardless, after that 3 weeks it’ll be avoiding all traces of gluten forever.
So for these next 3 weeks I will be binging on all my favourite glutinous foods whilst I still can… I’ll feel like crap, but maybe that’ll make me more excited to embrace a change that could have a real positive effect.
My digestion has been horrible for years, I’ve had no period, acne, joint problems, fatigue, severe bloating, inflammation…
For so long.
It will be a pain eating out. It’ll be sad to lose some of my favourites foods. The gluten free trend of people ditching gluten uneccesarilly for ‘health’ and weight loss will irk me even more… But if some of these horrible symptoms actually start to reside adhering to a gluten free diet… that would have such an impact on my life.
It’ll take time and dedication and a lot of learning… But it is almost as exciting a prospect as it is an annoying one.
