I recently started playing Fallout 3 again, this time taking the role of an overworked, gun-toting janitor. If I see it, I must pick it up and either throw it away at the nearest trash can or store it at the house. My companions are pack mules, containers for my tin can and whiskey bottle fetish.
My game is beginning to lag because of all the junk I’ve acquired.”
YES I want a tron-nor gta or five night collab (I love reading your tags)
okay but I don’t think you’re processing how much im LIVING for this mental image like ??
imagine connor playing gta and feeling the need to constantly apologise when he shoots someone and ignoring the way troye contains his giggles when connor spends more time customising his characters clothing and car as opposed to ACTUALLY doing missions because god forbid he’d actually have to do anymore to harm characters that he treats like real people in the game ?? or the way he’d attempt to throw gang signs similar to the ones he did in dans video to ‘fit the games aesthetic’ and try to rap along/sing badly to the songs that play as he cruises around in a car that took far too long to customise and when troye does too he makes sure to compliment his ‘beyond heavenly’ voice.
but then it’s connors turn to laugh when they play fnaf’s because he just KNOWS how much troye hates being scared and he can’t help but smile when troyes cursing under his breath because since when did a simple game based on such a childish concept have to be so damn scary? it doesn’t help that connors constantly making him jump by digging his fingers into his sides or shouting 'boo’ loudly at the most inconvenient moments and when the jump scare finally arrives troyes screeches so loudly that connor isn’t sure whether to laugh or cry when the other boy is on the floor saying every bad word you could think of.
and when connor brings forward the idea of playing the other installments of the horror franchise, troye just gives him that dubious, famous 'are you actually serious’ kind of look but then who can deny those puppy dog eyes ?? even if there’s some mischief hidden within them, before troye knows it they’re attempting to play the next game and somehow they’re now sharing controls and they’ve moved closer together and they’re grinning even if they’re terrified out of their minds and suddenly fear feels like the best thing in the world to the both of them.
neither of them consider themselves to be gamers but when they’re in each others company it doesn’t matter - because whether the cameras on or off, they’re having way too much fun and there’s no place they’d rather be or any other people they’d rather be with.

It might be borrowed time, but Zayn never wants to give
it back. He’s happy. Happy for the first time in longer than he’d
thought. He has his music and he has Harry, and that’s what he needs.
And if even Louis is skeptical whenever he talks on the phone, well. He
doesn’t know what he’s talking about.
“I think I’ve had like, five people come up to me today and ask me if I needed help finding my class. I’d just like to make it clear that I am not a freshman, I am a whole seventeen years of age. Oh, and I really don’t appreciate the height jokes at all. Some people are just smaller than others, okay? ”
Do you know why so many of Lapis’ lines are also things that Pearl had already said? Have you noticed how similar Lapis and Pearl look? (There’s also “Let’s stay on this miserable planet, together!” which is similar to what Pearl and Steven said after their attempted trip in Space Race.)
Lapis is the MIRROR GEM.
Lapis was stuck in a mirror that recorded everything it saw/heard and can replay it as a way of communicating. It was meant to
Pearl claims that Lapis’ mirror was found at the Galaxy Warp. Okay, well, if that’s true, it could have been yesterday or thousands of years ago. But consider this: It might not be true. Because when did we first see that mirror? We saw Pearl summon it out of her own gem sub-dimension! Who knows how long it was in there, watching and listening to everything she said and did?!
Maybe Lapis doesn’t trust the Crystal Gems because A) Pearl kept her mirror for potentially a long time and didn’t free her, B) Lapis saw everything Pearl saw, which may include some things the Gems haven’t told us yet about their past. Things they did that they aren’t proud of.
Whoever Lapis used to be, perhaps being trapped in the mirror (and kept in Pearl’s sub-dimension) has caused her to change. She’s picked up some things - phrases, attitudes, insecurities, even appearance.
I know this theory is a stretch. What do you think that Lapis’ and Pearl’s similarities might mean?
while we haven’t come off of hiatus yet, I have been working diligently to get as much work done on the comic as i can over the past month! Progress on the two pages I have completed so far (which are now DOUBLE the size of the Prologue pages) can be previewed by supporting me through Patreon!
$1+ gives you access to daily screenshots of my work, $5+ gives you a little more, including a peek at full pages (minus dialogue) when I complete them!
