Agreed, Jaspethyst is underrated but... aren't they relatives?
nah man, i wouldnt ever say that pearls or quartzes or even diamonds that are the same type of gem are related because I see it as more of a race of gems (sort of like elves, dwarves, etc; they have similar features but are not all family) 👌✨

Okay, the show's been shit for a long time now, but what we used to have was SQ as something that was solely ours. Through metas, headcanons, fanfiction and other creative fanwork, the whole positive fandom experience. And being one of those present from the early days, it's really sad to observe what it all got reduced to. Between having to align yourself between "industry insigters" who are there just for clicks and follows, quasi "activists" who either spew actor hate or worship them.. (cont)
(pt 2) and the “dumb positivity crew” that frankly, kinda have a lopsided
view of reality (denial, I guess?) no wonder people have been leaving,
left and right. The show’s been shit and now that even fandom
experience’s been reduced to infighting for leadership and/or spotlight, so what do we have ahead now? You guys have been a rare island of level-headedness and reason in all this mess, please tell me these latest posts of yours don’t mean you’ll be leaving too, with the rest of the
It is sad, isn’t it? Being around during the best of times, of the show itself, the fandom experience, the creative works as well as intellectual analyses, and then witnessing… everything that followed? The show’s steep decline, its message becoming even
than its narrative being half-arsed, everyone involved in its creation showing only basic self-servitude and endorsing severe toxicity in any and all active viewership following? Well, then. Not sure to tell you, friend.
If you can’t, or don’t want to align yourself between any of those ‘sides’ you mention–why force yourself? Because if all of this is making you feel the way it
does… then what’s the point of anything?
Then even the future of this blog (which yes, to answer your question–we will be leaving as well, only I’m gonna have to get back at you about if the blog will remain as an archive of a collective show/PR/fandom Once Upon a Time fuckery, or if it’ll just… disappear) should have absolutely no impact on your decision. If the creative works of people who are the only ones deserving all credit and praise (be it fanfiction or graphic arts) in the end–aren’t enough, then yes. Off you go. Run. Be free. Leave all of this shit behind. Because I know that I personally will move on happily, knowing only one thing: we may have been hopeful, subsequently disillusioned–but never delusional.
Heyyyy guys, I feel like I owe you an apology?? I haven’t been active here at all really, and I don’t think my last post about this ever actually went through cause mobile Tumblr is just……a mess
I’m sorry, I know I just kinda up and disappeared. I don’t even know what my last post said exactly but, regardless I’ve been very busy with life. My interest in Pokemon is still here! It’s just been as active as I’ve been here; I still love it to death, but I haven’t drawn it or touched it in months.
I might start doing things again at some point, who knows?? Buuuuut for now, things will still probably stay the same, since I’ve only just recently been on Tumblr in general as well. I’ll try to reblog things more often for you guys who are still here (somehow?? geez thank you) and maybe I’ll even try to draw some things, since I’m on summer break!
Regardless, sorry again, and thank you all for sticking around. You guys have always been a great bunch, and hopefully I can pick myself back up again >:0
i know eurovision is amazing and some of the performances are totally incredible, but whenever someone mentions eurovision around me all i can ever think about is that one time Ireland sent out a mechanical turkey that just screamed “give Ireland 12 points” for the entirety of the song
au where @danisnotonfire and @amazingphil get into a heated debate over grammar which ultimately results in them sharpie-ing their foreheads to prove a point and phil pulling the ol’ “english language and linguistics degree” card
