THE 100 MEME • 5 QUOTES • [1/5]

coolerthancats  asked:

Bismuth implies that Rose Quartz was from Earth, but the Prime Kindergarten only seems to have produced Amethysts, and the Beta was made after the war started. The Beta did produce more than one type of gem (Jasper and Carnelian) so theoretically the Prime could have produced Rose Quartzes as well as Amethysts, but the pink bubbles seem to contradict that. Just to confuse things, Amethyst 8XJ has a very Rose-like ringlet. So where do you think Bismuth got her info and what's your stance on it?

Rose has also subtly confirmed that she was not born on Earth in Rose’s Scabbard where she talks about “Even if we win, we’ll never be able to go home again.” About choosing to stay here and fight for Earth.

Rose also never relates to Amethyst about being an Earth Gem. Amethyst has felt this was a unique problem.

But, for some reason, Rose chose to mislead Bismuth- and quite possibly Garnet and other Crystal Gems- about her origins. This may be part of why Pearl tells Steven that he can’t tell Garnet and Amethyst about the armory- it contains something of Rose’s history that she kept away from them.

But it sure is interesting that all the rose quartz gems seem oddly quarantined, and the only time anyone refers to Rose Quartz, they’re only talking about the revolutionary, isn’t it. Almost like… there’s no history of them being out and about.

Aradia, Gospel of the Witches

Diana greatly loved her brother Lucifer, the god of the Sun and of Light and Splendor; who was so proud of his beauty, and who for his pride was driven from Paradise. Diana had by her brother a daughter, to whom they gave the name of Aradia.

In those days there were on earth many rich and many poor. The rich made slaves of all the poor. In those days were many slaves who were cruelly treated; in every palace tortures, in every castle prisoners.

Many slaves escaped. They fled to the country; thus they became thieves and evil folk. Instead of sleeping by night, they plotted escape and robbed their masters, and slew them. So they dwelt in the mountains and forests as robbers and assassins, all to avoid slavery.

Witnessing this, Diana said one day to her daughter Aradia:

“Tis true indeed that thou a spirit art,
But thou wert born but to become again
A mortal; thou must go to earth below
To be a teacher unto women and men
Who fain would study witchcraft in thy school.”

“And thou shalt be the first of witches known;
And thou shalt be the first of all i’ the world;
And thou shalt teach the art of poisoning,
Of poisoning those who are great lords of all;
Ye, thou shalt make them die in their palaces;
And thou shalt bind the oppressor’s souls with power.”

“And when ye find one who is rich,
Then ye shall teach the witch, your pupil, how
To ruin all his crops with tempests dire,
With lightning and with thunder terrible,
And hail and wind…”

“And when a priest shall do you injury
By his benedictions, ye shall do to him
Double the harm, and do it in the name
Of me, Diana, Queen of witches all!”

“And when the priests or the nobility
Shall say to you that you should put your faith
In the Father, Son, and Mary, then reply:

‘Your God, the Father, and Mary are but
Three devils…’

"The true God the Father is not yours;
For I have come to sweep away the bad,
The men of evil, all will I destroy!”

“Ye who are poor suffer with hunger keen,
And toil in wretchedness, and suffering too,
Full oft imprisonment; yet with it all
Ye have a soul, and for your sufferings
Ye shall be happy in the Other World,
But ill the fate of all who do ye wrong!”

Aradia: Gospel of the Witches, by Charles Godfrey Leland, c.1899.

olicity obviously but also if you've done that any other ship you ship

  • insists that they are an awesome dancer even though they’re terrible: Felicity, but Oliver’s not about to tell her how terrible she is. Especially when he gets to watch her shaking that butt. 
  • likes to watch reality tv: I actually don’t think that Felicity would watch reality t.v. Unless it’s Oliver’s cooking shows. She’s always down to watch Cutthroat Kitchen just because of how ridiculous it is.
  • refuses to wear pants when they’re home alone: Felicity and she’s always trying to get Oliver out of his pants (winkwink)
  • is the jealous / protective one: Both???? I think Oliver gets more jealous than Felicity does, but she has her moments. And as for protectiveness… we all know they would go to ends of the earth and back again to keep each other safe. 
  • goes all out on the holidays: Felicity
  • cries over books: Both
  • is terrible with kids: Felicity THINKS she’s terrible with kids, but she’s just nervous and inexperienced. 
  • drinks too much caffeine: Always Felicity
  • could sleep for twenty-four hours straight: Neither. They’re both insomniacs 
  • never wears matching socks: at home Felicity does whatever the fuck she wants. Which means no pants and mismatched socks, one with little cats on ‘em and the other probably some horrible neon color. 
  • punches a tree when they’re angry: Felicity
  • gets scared by the toaster: Also Felicity. She’s such a jumpy little bean and oliver teases her every time 

send me a ship and I’ll tell you…

Earth[in] Blood

There is [wine]
in the cup.
The foamy surface clings
to itself
and the cup
and the flesh
that tested its
integrity
and
strength.

There is [wine]
in the mouth.
The frothy fluid clings
to the teeth
and the throat
and the cup
now chattering
against teeth
biting down
deep wails.

There is [wine]
in the flesh.
The heated fluid clings
to the veins
and the cup
and the floor
that waits
for the flesh
to follow
it down.

There is [wine]
on the ground.
The intoxicating fluid clings
to the tongue
of the mouth
of the panther
of the god
that kisses it
clean
off my neck.

mythology: Hades (Άδης) and Persephone (Περσεφόνη) requested by @sansasfark

“but if you have tasted food, you must go back again beneath the secret places of the earth, there to dwell a third part of the seasons every year: yet for the two parts you shall be with me and the other deathless gods.”

okay but!!! someone talk to me about religion ACTUALLY EXISTING on the ark beyond just that mention of the tree. because there’s no way that institutions that lasted thousands of years would dissolve just because humans are now in space. maybe it’s less practiced, maybe it’s a quieter type of worship, but people actually having their different ways of interpreting humanity’s future in a spiritual sense.

imagine sayings being repeated as a way of reminding that the ark will go to the ground again: you will inherit the earth. i will dwell on the earth. ashes to ashes, dust to dust; when you die, you become part of the very space around you.

imagine actual vestiges of religious ceremonies on the ark??? praying towards the planet instead of the sunrise, because sunrise doesn’t really happen. bat/bar mitzvahs celebrating life and maturity. ACTUAL HOLIDAYS that speak of christmas / hanukkah / ramadan & eid al-fitr??

IMAGINE THOSE HABITS CARRYING OVER TO THE GROUND???

MONSTERS ARE FUCKING IDIOTS

WAY BACK WHEN, THE WORLD WAS COMPLETELY FUCKING DARK, WITHOUT A SUN OR MOON. THERE WERE PEOPLE THOUGH, AND THEY WENT ABOUT THEIR SHITTY LIVES IN COMPLETE DARKNESS. THERE WERE ALSO A FUCK TONNE OF MONSTERS AND WITCHES. BASICALLY EVERYTHING WAS SHIT.

ONE DAY THE PEOPLE GET TOGETHER AND DECIDE TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT THEIR SHITTY, MONSTER-FEARING LIVES. THEY GO COMPLAIN TO MOTHER EARTH ABOUT THE QUALITY OF SERVICE THEY ARE RECEIVING. INITIALLY SHE TELLS THEM TO FUCK RIGHT OFF BECAUSE SHE AIN’T GOT TIME FOR THAT SHIT, BUT THEY HANG OUT OUTSIDE HER HOUSE AND WON’T STOP BUGGING HER UNTIL SHE FIXES SHIT.

SHE MAKES THEM A MOON, AND FOR A WHILE EVERYONE, INCLUDING THE MONSTERS, IS SHOCKED BY THIS LIGHT FUCKERY. BUT EVENTUALLY THE MONSTERS STOP BEING SCARED AND CONTINUE THEIR TIRELESS WORK OF DESTROYING HUMANITY. SO THE PEOPLE GO AND BOTHER MOTHER EARTH AGAIN. THIS TIME SHE MAKES A FUCKING SUN FOR THEM, AND THAT’S HOW NIGHT AND DAY HAPPENED. 

THE SUN IS SO FUCKING BRIGHT THAT THE PEOPLE HIDE IN THEIR CAVES FOR A WHILE, BUT EVENTUALLY REALISE THAT SUN MEANS PLANTS AND RAINBOWS AND ALL THAT FUCKERY. ALSO THE MONSTERS ARE EVEN MORE AFRAID OF THE SUN, AND THEY WILL ONLY COME OUT AT NIGHT.

BUT THE PEOPLE ARE STILL BEING EATEN BY MONSTERS AS THEY SLEEP, SO THEY PESTER MOTHER EARTH FOR THE THIRD FUCKING TIME. SHE GIVES THEM A REALLY PRETTY FLOWER. THE FLOWER IS SO FUCKING BRIGHT AND PRETTY THAT IT LOOKS LIKE THE SUN. 

THE PEOPLE PUT ONE OF THESE FLOWERS OUTSIDE THEIR HOMES AND ALL THE MONSTERS ARE SO FUCKING AFRAID OF THIS TINY SUN THAT THEY FUCK OFF. IT’S A FUCKING SUNFLOWER. MONSTERS ARE IDIOTS.

now that i think about it pearl was probably the worst gem of the three they couldve picked for an episode like that just because the cluster, AKA the main storyline we’re focussing on rn, affects her least of anyone….

like cluster itself is pretty much an insult to garnets existence, we already know how she’s affected by forced fusion but we’ve seen nothing of how she’s feeling about it to this scale. it’s literally a such a huge mass of gems forced together that when it’s finished it will shatter the earth and we have no idea how garnet is affected by that….

and it affects amethyst because its related to her birthplace and is again going into how horrible it was that earth is being drained to create gems and even worse that these gems who were produced in a way very similar to amethyst are going to destroy her home or, y’know, “everything she’s ever known….”

but pearl??? pearl’s origin has no relation to this particular storyline. pearl was not made on earth, pearl has no emotional connection with earth or humans or the concept of fusion. hell, her only reason for being on earth is because it’s where rose was.. pearl is the only gem who at any point has been so desperate to get off the earth that she built a spaceship and was willing to take steven away from earth for years to get back home like…. earth is not her concern here. 
they had to find a way to drag pearl into this storyline by making peridot randomly start targeting her specifically. when the only way you can think to force a character into your storyline is “uuuh they get mad at each other and have a petty robot fight” then that should be your sign that hey, maybe we don’t need to focus so much on that character this time….. maybe for once we can have an entire arc that has nothing whatsoever to do with pearl!!…. but i guess thats asking too much

get to know me meme [3/10 shows]: Girl Meets World (2014-) 

“We think we’re the center of the universe. We think everything revolves around us. We depend on the sun for light, for warmth, every morning, every day. When it’s gone, we sleep, trusting that in the morning it will always come back again. The sun doesn’t go around the Earth. We are the ones moving. We orbit the sun because we need it. We need its light and its heat. And if it wasn’t there, we’d be dark and alone.“

I have Destroy questions, since it’s not my usual ending. It’s for a fic.

So:
-How long would it take for the fleets to repair the Charon relay from their side so they can go back and join Earth and the Citadel again? In my fic it’s two years. Is that too much? 

-How long would it take for Shepard to be rescued and brought back to the point that they are more or less healthy and capable of moving ? Would they be alright in two years? 

-I think the people left in the system would have begun repairs on Earth and the Citadel, but where would Shepard be? They can’t join the Normandy until the relay has been repaired, right? Could they stay in the Citadel, with trips on Earth to help as much as they can?

-In the two years before the relay is activated again, Shepard could rise to a leader status (whether they like it or not). Yes/No? I guess it would depend on who else is in the system and where Shepard could have the most influence (Earth or the Citadel)

-Shepard’s cybernatics: damaged? What if they need new ones? Could Shepard go blind in one eye because of this?

I’m also wondering about the repair done on each side of the relay but I need to check the wiki and previous conversations again so that’s for later.
