Just my thoughts on the leaked trailer and Lapis and Peridot audio, and personal thoughts and theories on what it means.
Lapis: They’re going to take out their anger on this planet just like they did before. I’m not going to let myself get caught up in another war!”
Peridot: Earth is our home now. Isn’t it worth fighting for?
There is also the sound of something (possibly a spaceship?) in the background. I’m not sure, the clip of the leak I found only had the audio, it didn’t show the footage that went with it. Lapis sounds scared and angry , Peridot earnest, like she is desperately trying to reason with Lapis and talk her round. The clip ends there and we don’t see or hear the result or continuation of the conversation.
I get the feeling the danger is imminent though, and whatever Lapis decision is, she’ll need to make it soon. I also think if anyone can get through to her at this point, it’s Peridot (Steven normally could as well, but is probably very preoccupied with the upcomng battle, and possibly already tried and for once failed to enlist her)
I saw some pretty negative comments about Lapis after this, but before everyone jumps on her for her reluctance to fight, I think there are a few important things to remember about Lapis here:
First, there’s the history we already know about her. That she was only meant to be on Earth for a short while, but for some reason got caught up in the Gem war and was attacked and poofed at some point..
Then there was the trauma of her being trapped in a mirror while still poofed and interrogated by Homeworld,
Then she was injured/cracked in the panic to flee Earth and abandoned for thousands of years, before the CGs found and similarly used her
then after finally being freed and returning home, she was immediately captured, interrogated again (by Peridot), dragged along on their mission back to Earth as an informant, and from what we’ve seen was treated very roughly (by Jasper),
and finally held prisoner on the ship.
Then there was being in the whole toxic, Malachite chaos of a fusion for a prolonged period of time and months of constantly fighting for control.
The situation and events leading up to her being poofed probably also holds some pretty nasty memories for her..
Of course she is going to be reluctant, and scared of history repeating or worse. She’s not even really trained in battle, and with the whole force of Homeworld potentially coming to Earth, this battle is going to be a lot more dangerous and intense than simply smacking a Ruby ship out the sky (defending Peridot), using her powers to punch a Gem off a ship (defending Steven) , or overpowering three Gems, one half-gem, and a few humans like she has in the past.
Also going waaaaaay back to when she first returned to Homeworld and sent a message to Steven
“Please don’t put up a fight, it will only lead to devastation!”
….is Lapis speaking from past experience?She seemed to be covering her ears and afraid of the battle in the flashback we see. So what happened previously that she got herself caught up in a conflict situation?. She isn’t a solider, or other Gem intended to fight, so why was she even there? We still only really know a very limited amount about her past.
To me, given her past (or what we know of it), Lapis reluctance to fight seems perfectly understandable. It doesn’t mean she doesn’t care.
Neither does her introversion. Lapis may not wear her heart on her sleeve like Peridot does, but she has a lot of affection for Steven,
and for Peridot too (whether you ship them romantically, like me, or not, they do care a lot about each other).
If Peridot or Steven, were in immediate danger and Lapis was aware I’m pretty sure she would fight to protect them. She just has no interest in playing the hero, or hanging around to be trapped in the middle of a battlefield like she was before, or going through a similar trauma conga line of consequences again
Lapis had/has a lot of baggage, and a lot of trauma to work through, quite possibly battling with ptsd and depression, and certain things have been known to trigger her, such as seeing the Galaxy warp where she was abandoned.
She has been and is still healing and adjusting mentally and emotionally, a process that is ongoing. She is not a Crystal Gem, and apart from playing along and helping to temp for them, has never claimed to be one of them either, unlike Peridot.
I think the endgame battle may be where the “friendships will be tested” comes in though, and I think it may be Lapis reluctance to fight that causes friction, Steven and the CGs will likely want her and Peridot to fight, and while Peridot is willing, Lapis baulks. Steven is disappointed, the CGs are annoyed, Peridot is caught in the middle. Peridot may even end up being the mediator, agreeing with Steven and the Gems and the need to fight, but still sympathising with Lapis and being concerned for her (this isn’t going to be easy on Lapis either way), and urgently but gently trying to talk her round.
And, like Peridot if this is the scenario, I can see both sides too, if Homeworld attacks the CGs will need all the help they can get to defend Earth a second time, and Lapis is one of the most powerful non fusion Gems on their side (as long as she has access to a water source) and despite not being a trained solider, can certainly fight when she needs to. Even cracked she almost defeated them (twice)
But I can also sympathise with Lapis and don’t blame her either, I feel this could be the situation that eventually causes her to fully fight on their side.
According to rumours Peridot touches Lapis arm while talking to her, and Lapis squeezes her hand before walking off. I think she’ll appear to refuse at first, but there will still be a lot of inner turmoil, she still cares about Steven, she cares about Peridot, she is not ok with the situation, and eventually that causes her to go back. She may not align fully with the Gems but then her loyalty has always been more towards Steven in that regard anyway, but fight alongside them for a common cause? Sure. This may also be what makes her finally realise (or at least admit) how much she cares for Peridot, and may lead, intentionally or otherwise, to the Lapidot fusion the pairings fans have long hoped for .:)
Her reluctance and hesitation to enter this war is not ideal, but understandable, and I think it’s unfair to judge her too harshly, especially given her past trauma, that we don’t know the full story, and most of us are going by an audio clip of part of a conversation.
I don’t think emotionally or mentally this situation will be easy for Lapis, whether she fights or not.

This is part of my ongoing Buffyverse Project, where I write notes/meta for every episode in an attempt to better understand the characters and themes of the shows. You can find the BTVS list here and the ATS list here. Gifs are not mine.
I loved that Something Blue allowed us to sympathize with both sides of the Willow vs. Scoobies conflict. I’m annoyed when Willow snaps at everyone and interrupts Buffy and Riley’s date, which forces me to recognize truth when Willow says no one wants to deal with her heartbreak anymore. The episode was also really funny.
We discover in the first scene that Willow has been going to Oz’s place alone. She’s clinging to the relationship and fully expects him to return. This is also when Riley and Buffy really get going, which has to be a painful reminder for Willow. I had forgotten about Willow and Buffy’s conversation in the graveyard and in hindsight find it pretty sad. Some of Buffy’s issues with Riley were already present but she basically never dealt with them. I don’t believe the implosion of their relationship was all on Riley. I think he sensed some real issues but just handled it all wrong.
Buffy: Riley seems so solid. Like he’s not the type to give a girl grief.
Willow: Get out. Get out while there's still time.
Buffy: I know. I gotta get over the whole bad boy thing. There’s no good there. Seeing Angel in L.A. - even for five minutes - hello to the pain.
Willow: The pain is not a friend.
Buffy: But then I can’t help thinking, isn't that where the fire comes from? Can a nice, safe relationship be that intense? It’s nuts, but part of me believes that real love and passion have to go hand in hand with lots of pain and fighting-
I’ve never gotten the bad boy thing. It’s all cool on television but in real life it’s dealing with a serial cheater at best and visiting a jail at worst. No, thanks. Anyway Buffy definitely has a thing with it which, if I wanted to get analytical, would say goes back to her father and her fear of healthy relationships. Riley could have been forever and committing to that is scary. But when you know Angel or Spike can’t last you don’t really have to commit or face your fears of ending up like your mother. I think Buffy has a lot of issues with Hank (made worse by her first relationship being a nightmare) that go unresolved. I’m not saying Riley and Buffy would have lasted forever, but I don’t think she ever really gave that idea a chance.
According to the Memorial Day SU special, when the trial was occurring, Yellow diamond was PRETTY PISSED when Zircon accused one of the diamonds of shattering Pink diamond. She looked alarmed that anyone would think that and seemed PRETTY defensive. And based on Zircon’s explanation, it seemed very likely that it wasn’t Rose who shattered Pink. Geologically, diamonds are very strong and would not be able to be broken by anything but another diamond. To suggest that a Rose Quartz would have the power to even DAMAGE a diamond is a bit extreme, even using her gem weapon (her shield). Given the assumption that the weapon Rose used a sword without any gem abilities (the breaking point as Steven said, but in a precious episode, Bismuth said Rose wouldn’t use it) The only sword that Rose actually used was “designed to destroy the physical form, but never the gem”, so that makes it basically impossible for Rose to shatter Pink with a mere metal sword. For her BY HERSELF to get that close to Pink along with getting her to stop and step out of her palanquin she would have had to be in her entourage and Rose Quartz’s are soldiers, not protectors for diamonds. They are on the same level as Jasper’s as I’d imagine and the Jasper’s are soldiers. IN ADDITION!! NO ONE! SAW! ROSE! APPROACH! NO ONE!!! SAW!!! HER!! NOT EVEN THE SAPPHIRES, WHO HAVE FUTURE VISION!!! NOT EVEN HER PEARL WHO LITERALLY LIVES TO SERVE HER!! It would’ve had to be someone who she and her entourage trusted. A Rose Quartz, WHO HAD NO BUSINESS BEING THERE, would’ve been suspicious. ESPECIALLY SINCE SHE WAS ALREADY A KNOWN REBEL! So I’m just sayin’ the evidence points toward it not being Rose, rather, I believe Yellow and White shattered Pink.
As mentioned earlier, Yellow seemed very defensive and angry when it was suggested by Zircon that a Diamond shattered Pink. I think that, upon seeing that Pink was getting attached to Earth and that her own gems were forming a rebellion to save the Earth, Yellow and White started to feel Pink would turn against HomeWorld as well and join their rebellion. They felt threatened by Pink and the rebellion forming beneath her. White (who I assume is the highest power in HomeWorld) probably felt extremely threatened at a rebellion and the possibility of being overthrown, so she probably spoke to Yellow of her concerns. However I don’t think they spoke to Blue about it because she seems to have been VERY close and attached to Pink. Even to the point where she went back to earth to the place where Pink was shattered to mourn her. She cares about Pinks gems and refuses to shatter them, but just keeps them bubbled. Based on this, Yellow and White probably wouldn’t have told Blue about their plans to shatter Pink, as it would break her heart.
Now onto the idea that Pearl (or a Pearl) shattered Pink, I feel that even though they are “disposable” one would not be used to shatter a diamond nor have a power to shatter one. Also we know pearls cannot shapeshift, as it would serve no purpose to them. So I kinda have thrown that idea out the window. But regarding the Pearl we know, I fully believe she was White’s Pearl, who turned to the rebellion. In a previous theory I made, I claimed that based on her color scheme (the white body and pearl with pink hair) she was under White Diamond, but after meeting and siding with rose (and probably getting poofed at some point) she regenerated herself with pink hair to show her allegiance or love to Rose. Based on her body color, her original hair color would be near the color of her skin (white) and it wouldn’t be pink. I believe, Pearl siding with Rose and joining the rebellion was just a further reason for White and Yellow to feel the need to shatter Pink. Because of this I think Pearl feels responsible, hence her reaction to the mention of Pink’s shattering.
In conclusion, I don’t know exactly how the shattering occurred, but I believe it was White and Yellow Diamond, who then threatened the gems involved to keep the truth hidden to further turn the rest of HomeWorld and Blue against the rebels.
So there’s my Theory.
So, yes. Yes, I can! Some people asked me to write about this, and I remain my word that you guys can feel free to work on my headcanons, with the only condition that if you warn me if you do. This is the my first attempt to write a fanfiction totally in english. I’ve never been farther than my headcanons, because it’s not exactly easy to write in another language, but it was funny anyway. So don’t be hard on me, hahaha. Probably a native speaker will do it far better than me! But since I apparently don’t have the power within me to deny anything you guys ask me…Here it is! I hope you like it, and thank you very much for your ask!

slipped around Sirius waist and he not so discreetly pulled the boy closer,
their side bodies touching lightly. They were standing in the common room,
watching a couple of blokes playing chess. Remus and Lily on the other hand were sitting on the
floor, next to the fireplace. Between the two pairs there was a very crowded common room, full of excitement and noise. However, it didn’t stop Remus to lift his eyes up, aiming at James and Sirius a sidelong glance. He looked away
quickly when realized that Sirius reciprocated the gaze.

that’s the evidence I was looking for,’ she closed the book and turned to him,
a meaningful smirk on her lips, ‘you fancy him.’
open-mouthed Remus stared at her, as if he had never seen her before. ‘Damn,
Lily. I…I’m not that obvious. You, on ther other hand…’ and it was true
that Remus already knew about Lily’s growing interest on a certain bespectacled
boy. His smile was triumphant when Lily’s startled eyes met his. ‘Well, that was
the evidence I was looking for.’

tell him yourself if you don’t stop being so obvious.’
‘So do you,
my furry friend.’
you’re spending so much time with Sirius, aren’t you?’ he closed the book, his
smirk vanished. ‘Besides, it’s kinda different, don’t you think? James is a
boy, you’re a girl. Besides, he is so obviously crazy about you since fifth year… Just
go there and snog him already, okay?’
‘Well, I wish I could. But…what
do you think that is about?’ her head leaned slightly at James and Sirius’
direction. Sirius head was resting on James’ shoulder, and for Merlin’s hairy balls,
he was nuzzling James?

turned to the pair once more. He had been trying to figure out what the hell
was going on between they lately, but failed miserably. Sometimes James seemed
to be a little unconfortable with Sirius’ touches, but other times he was the
one to hug the other boy from behind in a very embarrasing way, and then Sirius was the one who seemed to be tense.

unreliable and Remus immediately knew that she worried about that possibility.

fixed on the boys who had just started to climb the stairs to the dorm.

Prongs! He was staring at us!’ Sirius sharp voice crossed the room, and Remus
stopped at the doorway to listen. Not so very polite, he knew, but then James’
voice sounded as harsh as Sirius’ did and he surrendered to the curiosity.
Lily! Merlin’s ass, she’s certainly thinking that I’m a bloody shirt-lifter. No
‘Well, you have started this!’ Remus felt the giggle in Sirius voice this time, and frowned.
What the hell that stupid arses were up to this time? ‘You can give up any time
you want, Mr Prongs.’

against his skin. He stepped away, stumbling on his own clothes as he run back
to the common room.

They are here.’

strengthening the tight on Remus soft hands and Remus knew he was blushing but it
totally worth it because Sirius’ face was priceless.
left the dungeons, none of them had a single clue about what the class had been about. Some
kind of awkward rivalry was triggered between them, and when Lily and Remus
touched their hands over the table, James and Sirius leaned against each other
shoulders, whispering something in a very disturbing intimate manner.
following week went slowly.
Monday was all about the holding-hands game all day long. Hands closed together during classes,
during dinner, fingers slipping along each others hands fondly.
hands started to raise up a little bit. Soft fingers on each others jaws and
Wednesday was the ‘what the fuck is that, Lily is fucking feeding Remus straight through his mouth? Prongs, grab your fork.’
Thursday the hug season was opened. All kinds of hugs. Remus wrapped Lily in his arms and temporarily lifted her up off of the ground, making her giggle. James hugged Sirius and his chin rested on the top of the boy’s head. But the worst was by far the hug from behind, because Remus shivered every time he looked at them and all he could think was how desperately he wanted to be in James’ place.
Friday was not a good day at all. Because they started to kiss. Tender kisses on the forehead, lips gently touching their cheeks. How disturbing it could be?
Saturday things started to get a little bit out of control.
each other, oh God!’ Sirius muttered in despair, staring at Lily and Remus fucking cuddling in the couch.
we’ve started this. But I’d never imagine this…I mean, Moony?’
there’s nothing wrong about Moony, you arse. He’s so h—’

together. They occasionally strengthen the grip on their fingers, but it was
just a silent way to confort each other.

cuddling and all these couple stuff…The next step would be what? Bloody
giggled and shrugged. ‘Maybe? I can’t imagine James and Sirius making out

oh, wait.’ Lily stopped abruptly. ‘That’s it! We can
stop this cycle of nonsense if we reach a point that they don’t want to cross. So we win!’
asking me to kiss you, Evans?’ Remus laughed, nodding his head in disbelief.
‘What, Am I
that repulsive, you queer?’ she faked a outraged voice, lifting her hands to her
chest. ‘That’s funny because considering you want to snog Sirius Black, I
wouldn’t say you are the most selective person on Earth.’

how awkward it would be to kiss my sister?’

her face. Remus turned to her, a hand raising and combing her short hair.
‘Listen, I’m sorry

just talk to James’, he leaned closer, resting his forehead on Lily’s.

The entire Common Room looked at them. Lily and Remus had been cuddling all over the place and James and Sirius were sounding really convincing with all that secret whispers into each other ears.

I live my life my one rule: You’ve either seen almost every single Disney Channel Original Movie or you’re not allowed within 500 feet of my Even Stevens Themed 30th Forever 29th Birthday Party.
Disney Channel Original Movies are probably the most important films of our generation. Not since the Honey I Shrunk A Something Franchise has such a dynamic group of films been released with such a significant purpose and life-fulfilling goal. I’ve seen every single Disney Channel Original Movie going up to 2004, because I decided early in life to substitute meaningful relationships with inspirational films about handicapped soap-box racers and mother’s with particularly awful dating habits.
Sure, maybe I have the sex appeal of a crouton, but at least I got to experience The Poof Pointtwice eleven times. These movies have become a part of who I am. They are my Lord Voldemort; my past, present and future because I’m still going to be yelling Zetus Lepedus when I’m 78 years old entering the part of my life when peeing takes 48 minutes and the only thing that gets Turnt Up is my hearing aid.
Granted, some DCOM’s are better than others, but all of them hold a very special place in my heart along with melted cheese and people who don’t include me in Group Texts.
In Destiny’s Child terms, “Brink” was the Beyonce of Disney Channel Movies to Kelly Rowland’s “Zenon” and What’s Her Name’s “Smart House.” My Team Pup N’ Suds T-Shirt will be hanging wrinkle-free in my closet when my future wife finally hands me divorce papers for refusing to stop rollerblading around the house yelling “SOUL SKATERS.”
You’re also not going to convince me that ProtoZoa from Zenon doesn’t deserve an entire section,-no, REALM, inside the Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame. “SuperNova Girl” is the only thing that makes my heart go Boom Boom besides cute, quirky girls holding a steaming, hot plate of Totino’s pizza rolls. And don’t get me started on “The Galaxy is Ours,” because it is a revelation, and the most important song in the alternative/hip-hop/space rock genre after the theme song for Space Jam.
On an unrelated note, while writing this I slowly realized that“Double Teamed” is not only one of my favorite DCOM’s but also the only one I need to Google Image with Safe-Search On.
I’ve grown with these films. I know more about Disney Channel movies than I do about my ancestry. I could be German and not know it, but I know every single word of the spell in “Halloweentown.” I’ve seen Halloweentown 2: Kalabar’s Revenge more than I’ve seen myself eat a vegetable.” And that sounds sad, but not as sad as missing out on the second greatest wizard-magic franchise for the 9-16 year old demographic.
You know that Disney Channel affected your life so much when you come to the conclusion that you wouldn’t be able to say, “I, Do” to someone who sighed and rolled their eyes after noticing you were watching Johnny Tsunami .
You know that Disney Channel is the most important element of your childhood when you’ve gotten detention for shouting “PHANTOM OF THE MEGAPLEX STRIKES AGAIN” in the heat of a very real fire drill during your Sophomore year of High School.
You know that Disney Channel is embedded into your soul forever when the only Spanish phrases you remember after 3 years of foreign language credits are from the movie, “Gotta Kick it Up.”
I’m almost positive that Eddie’s Million Dollar Cook-Off is the reason I said no to drugs. I know deep down in my heart that Step-Sister from Planet Weird could have been better, but that didn’t stop me from watching it every Friday night while everyone else was being “popular” and “dating.” Sure, we deserved a better third installment to the Zenon franchise, but at least we got a trilogy from our favorite STELLAR space girl MAJOR. There’s countries out there that still have yet to put a fake girl into fictional television space… and that’s unsettling.
We were the definition of blessed and we should never forget that. We had the pleasure of growing up with not one, but TWO Ryan Merriman adventures. We not only watched him act, but dance, sing and experience the onslaught of advanced Irish puberty.
The Luck of the Irish taught me to not be ashamed of who I am and I’m not. I’m a DCOM’er, a Brink lover and a proud owner of The Thirteenth Year on DVD. I may not have a girlfriend, a steady flow of income or any semblance of sexual dexterity, but at least I got to experience Shia Labeouf before he became everything that Louis Stevens would have hated.
To put it simply, Disney Channel Original Movies weren’t just great… they still are.
I know it’s been said, but both Lapis and Jasper were abusive.
Jasper was the one that was desperate for Lapis to fuse in the first place, yes, but Lapis CONTINUED to hold Jasper down as Malachite. The question is, why? She was surrounded by water anyway, so if they were to ever break free, Lapis could just easily destroy her. Jasper was by no means “sweet” to Lapis during their time as Malachite, but Lapis flat-out admitted that she liked taking things out on Jasper, even mentioning earlier that she “missed” Jasper. She took her anger from the past out on Jasper by KEEPING them as Malachite. Again, if Jasper were to break free, Lapis could just easily poof Jasper at that point, as they’re so far out in the ocean and they’re surrounded by water. It’s more along the lines of Jasper starting it and Lapis continuing it. Now Jasper is desperate to become Malachite again for power. She LOVED being with Lapis because she felt that only she could handle Lapis’ “power”. Lapis, of course, realizes that they should never fuse again and says in a concerned tone, “No!”. It really is great character development for her. While Lapis liked being Malachite after a while, she’s trying to break free of it so she can’t hurt Jasper anymore. Jasper is too deep into it and WANTS to fuse again because not only is she used to it, but it gave her a huge surge of power, kind of like Pearl and Garnet becoming Sardonyx.
They were both wrong, and the way the situation was handled was great. It’s been said before, but the ending of Alone at Sea is the perfect way to describe an abusive relationship to younger viewers.
Request: Can you write a one shot where Castiel is in love with the reader, but since he's an angel he doesn't really understand love so he goes to Sam and Dean and asks them to explain what he's feeling then he tells the reader how he feels after the boys explain it to him and she feels the same way? Extra fluff please! c:
*Third Person POV*
Castiel poofed into the bunker living room, looking around. He had startled Sam and Dean, but as usual, took no notice to it. “Is Y/N here?” He asked.
“No, she’s getting a shower.” Dean replied, looking at the angel like he had two heads, “What’s up?”
“I think something is wrong. She may be more than we expect.” Castiel said.
Sam and Dean both looked at each other, worried. Y/N joined the team only a few months ago, but they both loved her like sister. If she was actually evil, they wouldn’t know what to do. “Are you sure?” Sam asked.
“Not exactly. But every time I’m around her I get these funny feelings.” Cas told them.
“Like what?” Sam asked.
“My hands get sweaty, my stomach feels strange, and I keep forgetting what I want to say. It could only be magic.” Cas explained, fully serious.
Sam and Dean both broke into huge, idiotic grins. “Cas, she’s not magic.” Dean said.
“Then what is she?” Castiel asked, tilting his head.
“I think you just like her, like, as in love.” Sam explained, smiling.
Castiel considered this for a moment, then nodded. “What do I do?"
"Tell her.” Sam and Dean said in unison. Castiel nodded at them, then poofed away.
You sat on your bed, hair still wet, reading. You had nothing better to do, but you just couldn’t focus. You had to keep rereading each line. It wasn’t that it was a bad book, it was pretty good, but you had other things on your mind. Well not things, more like person. Specifically Castiel. Ever since you’d joined the team, you’d just been amazed by him. You loved how he just popped in everywhere, never understanding why people kept telling him to stop. You loved how he saw the good in everything. But most of all, you loved how he viewed the world. He was amazed by it, and thought everybody should be.
“Hello Y/N.” The voice from your dreams said, making you jump.
Smiling, you said, “Hey Cas. What’s up?”
“I like you.” He stated.
Still smiling you replied, “I like you too.” Of course you felt way more than just liking, but you could never tell him that.
Now Castiel smiled, and said, “Good. Now what do we do?”
“What do you mean?” You asked, usually at this point he’d poof away and go find Dean.
“Sam and Dean told me that when two people both like each other they do things together, like eat and see movies.” Castiel explained.
You stared at him. Castiel was describing dating, you knew that for sure. So, did that mean when Cas said he liked you, he meant that he liked you? Finally! “Wait, Cas. You like me, as in, you want to date me?” You asked, wanting to be totally clear.
“Yes, that’s what I said.” Castiel replied, tilting his head he added, “Was I not clear?"
"Cas, you were definitely not clear, but it’s okay.” You told him.
“Do you like me in the same way? I’m confused.” He stated.
You laughed and moved closer to him, “Cas, I’m in love with you!” You exclaimed, throwing your arms around him. To your surprise, he hugged back. You wondered who taught him that, but decided to save it for another time. “How long have you had these feelings?” You asked, just needing to know.
“Since I met you.” Cas confessed, then, looking embarrassed he added, “I thought you were evil.”
You stared at him, trying to figure out if this was some sort of pick up line he was just messing up, “evil?”
“Whenever I was around you, I felt different. I was nervous and I thought it was because you cursed me.” Castiel explained, looking at his feet.
You choked back tears. It was the nicest thing anybody had ever said or felt towards you. Slowly, you put your hand to his chin, and made him look you in the eye. Then, you moved your lips towards his. He closed the space.
Your lips crashed together, his were soft and strong. It was everything you’d ever dreamed of.
This is only from a story I have heard during an OOC-break during a LARP-adventure.
A relatively new player had been pestering a high level mage for almost the full weekend and near the end of the con the mage snapped.
“Hey, GM, I want to transmit all of my remaining energy!” she said.
“Well, who’s the target and more importantly, why now?” the GM wanted to know.
The mage pointed to the player, while the GM wanted to know if the mage knew what she was doing.
“Yes, I know, every mana point I want to transmit results in one point of damage and I have still about 3000 points left.”
This left the GM speechless, but since he knew the mage well from a number of occassions he went along with it.
After some rituals and stuff the GM turned up on the annoying player, who was in the middle of an IC-conversation, and tapped him on the shoulder to get the attention, then said ‘Poof’ and made an exploding gesture with both hands.
“Poof?” the newbie said, confused.
“Yes, ‘poof’, 3000 damage points direct.”
“Does… that mean I’m dead?”
“More than dead, yes. Extinguished, soul totally shattered and you can’t be resurrected by any means, there’s simply nothing left of you.”
I know we’re all focusing on Bismuth, but Amethyst has a new outfit, meaning she got poofed at some point! She has a white shirt, and the colors on her pants seem to have been swapped, with the stars and boots becoming purple and the rest becoming black.
Okay!! So this is going to be the last thing i’ll say on the subject of women with body hair for a while because i’m bored of this rudimentary conversation and i’ve received maybe 500 million different messages with this exact same “argument.” A lot of folks are using the tired response to me challenging the idea that women must modify their bodies to be deemed acceptable in society with the phrase “it’s just preference” as if just writing the word “preference” is a magic spell that wards off critical thinking and suddenly makes my entire point poof out of thin air. ohhhh, its a preference, guess that means it cannot be examined!! damn, preference-zoned again!!!!!!!
Let me lay it out real quick but only quickly because I don’t have enough time for this shit:
fucking. literally i have said many times that it is ok to have your preferences. i’m not here to take all the things you like away from you. i’m not the police or your mom or an evil witch locking you in a tower. honestly it’s like you people aren’t even bothering to read what i’m writing before proverbially shitting out of your mouth:
the point i’m making is that it’s important. to. analyze. your. beliefs. this is CRITICAL!! think about WHY you believe what you do, because i can promise you that almost all your “preferences” are man made, and i can promise you that many of these beliefs are neither necessary nor beneficial.
if you continue to live your life without stopping to take the time to sort out which of the concepts you’ve been taught are potentially harmful then you will continue to live in bigotry and ignorance. point blank.
for those of you who say it’s not about women, well, first of all, youre wrong. it doesn’t matter if you personally find ALL hair gross whether it be on men or women or otherwise because as a large-scale societal norm in america it is heavily expected that a girl remove her body hair or else face ridicule and shame. i don’t care if you ALSO don’t like hair on men and it truly d o e s n t matter because a man will not be insulted, harassed, and physically assaulted for having body hair like a woman will.
this is not the same as preferring people with brown eyes over green because people with green eyes are not forced to feel ugly and undesirable. they do not have to go out and get contact lenses that make their eyes itchy all day. i find it so interesting that so many of you act as if by suggesting the idea that women don’t have to shave/wax/epilate i had somehow victimized you, like i were holding you down and forcing you to like hairy chicks as if that’s the craziest fucking notion. newsflash: your preferences are forced upon girls every single day!!
im not asking you to have sex with a hairy woman!! i don’t fucking care if you want to have sex with me!! what i’m asking you to do is wonder why it is that you find hairy women repulsive and ugly. stop acting as if these unexamined beauty standards - your “preferences” - aren’t socially mandated!! stop acting like these “preferences” aren’t deep-seated in misogyny and forced upon young girls, stop acting as if girls are not made to feel inadequate for growing hair because WE ARE!! stop acting as if i don’t get stopped in the street and harassed for being a girl and having hair in places that hair grows naturally!!! stop acting like i don’t get hundreds of messages on this site berating me for having the audacity to have underarm hair!!!! stop acting like i’m not actively being punished for having a body!! stop equating “femaleness” with bareness and for the love of god stop regulating/confirming the concept of femininity!
maybe even with your “preferences” you would never do that. maybe your personal preferences would never hurt anybody. maybe you just like hairless girls! ok! that’s fine! good for you! but as a social construct, it IS some bullshit, and you must acknowledge it or you are a part of this social construct.
and OBVIOUSLY hairy girls are not the biggest issue here!! this entire post ties into all kinds of toxic beauty standards including ones that oppress women of color, trans women, disabled women, fat women, etc. not thinking about the societal norms you were raised around is a powerful vessel for oppression. you aren’t just “not attracted to black girls,” you have internalized racism. you are bigoted, whether you want to be or not. and you will continue to be unless you agree to analyze some of your personal preferences.
long story short, just!!!!!!!!!!! THINK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ABOUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here, have a sweet and hopefully funny little piece inspired in part by @penandinkprincess ‘s ask from yesterday.
It wasn’t until Emma reached for her glass and accidentally knocked it over for the third time that Killian realized they had something of a problem.
Emma Swan was drunk.
She apologized profusely to Granny, who had at first been amused – because Emma Swan getting tipsy at her counter was not something that happened every day – but was now skating toward lovingly annoyed. “I’ve half a mind to make you wipe up the counter yourself, girl,” she said, her no-nonsense tone cutting through the rum-induced haze in Emma’s mind enough to make her sit at attention. “One more spilled glass and I’m cutting you off.”
“Sorry,” Emma repeated, her cheeks flushed as Granny wiped a rag over the counter to sop up the spilled drink. The woman gave her a curt nod, accepting her apology, and ducked out back to put the glass in the wash.
Emma turned on her stool and smiled sheepishly at Killian. “I think I got us in trouble.”
