To the many people messaging me about Pink Diamond things: please take a look at my #pink diamond theory tag first because there’s a lot of stuff there that really doesn’t need rehashing, and you’ll also find compilations of in-show Pink Diamond hints and appearances (there’s also fanfic!). The conclusion is still that we really don’t know what the deal with Pink Diamond is, or how she’s connected to Rose Quartz and Pearl.

I personally really dislike theories that present Pink Diamond as the “real” leader of the rebellion who heroically sacrificed herself or got killed by the other Diamonds for it, as I feel it seriously undermines Rose, her character, and her purpose in the story. It’s Rose’s rebellion, we’ve heard repeatedly, the Crystal Gems were her army, Jasper respected her tactics, she “saw the beauty in everything” and valued all life, she’s been repeatedly stated to have been the leader and the traitor (take a look at this post for an out-of-universe example, since deleted), she has a radical doctrine and a manifesto and an important set of beliefs, it’s her legacy Steven is trying to live up to - taking this all away and making it something she all but inherited, from a superior or whatever, who we’ve never heard a single mention of in almost 100 episodes of the show to boot? Honestly sounds like pretty bad storytelling to me, and really messes with thematic stuff, too. Imo even having PD just be a sympathetic ally and removed by the other Diamonds because of that sounds iffy (and honestly I really think the Crystal Gems wouldn’t have a problem mentioning her to Steven by this point - and why would the show be keeping her so secret, while also building her up with all the teasing hints?). I guess it might all click into place at some point in the future but we’re still not at that point.

You know how in some shows if there is a monarchy, usually they’ll take out a person of power to gain more for themselves do you think the other Diamonds did this to Pink Diamond and Rose is just fighting for her honor?

We don’t really know much about how Homeworld functions, how the Diamonds split power between themselves, how their rule actually works. Maybe they did get rid of Pink Diamond, though I don’t know if infighting and power grabs like that would benefit them at all/if they’re even possible (the way Peridot talks about them just makes me think they’re three completely equal co-rulers and I don’t see much of a difference between three and four, but who knows) - but the timing of the pink diamond symbol removal very pointedly ties it into the rebellion and, especially from a storytelling/meta perspective, the two are inextricably connected, so some purely political internal power struggle just doesn’t cut it. Rose is definitely not fighting for Pink Diamond, though, but for the Earth, and humans, and love, and freedom, and the Gems who followed her - again, see paragraph above.

Regarding this post, the brief kinda jokey mention of Rose assassinating Pink Diamond there is due to a fic I wrote a couple of months ago (not yet posted publicly since it’s part of a fic exchange) in which at one point Rose fights against PD and messes her up by using her shield to deflect her own attack back at her, in a kind of magical reverb deal that last night’s episode reminded me of. Rose (and Pearl!) assassinating Pink Diamond in some really shocking improbable unfathomable (in Homeworld’s eyes) upheaval is my favourite idea to play with currently - and there’s the “darker” (ugh) twist to Rose’s backstory everyone is always clamouring for. And again there’s the issue of Pearl’s damn spacesuit which has been a thorn in every theory’s side for over 50 episodes now (though I kind of gleefully like the suggestion that if she was complicit in Pink Diamond’s destruction she wears it as a trophy, almost), but as we’ve heard during the SDCC panel Space Race and Pearl’s motivations there (as well as Pearl’s… entire backstory) are still big spoiler territory, so I guess we’ll see!

I sent an important email AND went out for coffee with a priest friend today without freaking out bc ~anxiety~ (the last time I saw him I was in a rlly bad headspace and was sullen and brutally blunt and I was p sure he hated me and thought I was a rude nutcase) and i actually had a good time out of the house for once but now I’m exhausted and rlly rlly need to sleep

mood: *standing in an overflowing bathtub wearing a cloud print scuba suit with cups of chocolate milk and candles scattered around the room, screaming “I JUST WANT TO BE HAPPY!” repeatedly as I look up through the sky window and dramatically bang my fist against the tiled wall next to me*

Author's choice! What is something you wish you were asked but haven't been yet, or just share a headcanon you have, or anything you would like to talk about. I love all of your answers! They are always so thoughtful and fun. Hope they keep coming for a long time to come.

I feel like this should’ve been an easy one but I couldn’t think of anything specific to talk about so I’m going to just talk about Fushimi ^^ Please enjoy these five random reasons why Fushimi deserves lots of hugs:

Shopping Stuff

Randomly stepping away from my silence for thoughts on stuff I’ve bought in the past two months.

This brow tint and gel is phenomenal and at $9 I will never use anything else again. My brows are bangin’.

Been slathering snail goo on my face like the internet told me to. I don’t know if it actually helps but this smells like straight up heaven.

I totally forgot that leave-in conditioner was a thing and the last time I used it was 2001, but I randomly stumbled upon this reasonably priced one and my hair thanks me. I don’t know if I’ll ever use argan oil or any other expensive shit again.

Finally bought Zella leggings during the anniversary sale. The fabric is so…odd? I think I like them? Although I recently read one of you guys post about the bunching behind the knees and that is also a thing I’m experiencing.

Bought these flares and I’m not sure how I feel about them. I feel like the tightness in my thighs and the severity of the flare make my legs look like a figure eight. Will check them out in the full length mirror when I get home today.

I finally saved up and bought a pair of these Everlane beauties two months ago. Let me tell you: they are gorgeous BUT you have to order one full size up at least and I would not get them if you don’t have narrow-ish feet. They’ve taken awhile to break in.

That scene from the Goofy Movie you reblogged becomes even better when you realize the kid calling out to Stacy is voiced by Dante Basco.

I KNOW RIGHT 

CASE IN POINT A GOOFY MOVIE IS THE MOST FLAWLESS PIECE OF CINEMA EVER PRODUCED AND IF YOU DISAGREE FIGHT ME I DON’T GIVE A SHIT THAT’S JUST HOW I FEEL
