Gosh, that part in Much Ado About Nothing when Beatrice and Benedick read each other’s secret love letters and admit their love is always so cute. But, like, too cute. 

That’s more like it. That’s the response I’d expect of two hyper-critical sarcastic dorks in love.

You Really Got Me Now by allwaswell16 (6K)

Louis is the best older brother anyone could ask for. He knows this because he’s agreed to help chaperone his younger sister’s school trip to Rome. As it turns out, Italy is full of surprises. Fizzy’s Italian teacher is surprisingly hot, Rome is surprisingly interesting, and Louis is surprisingly falling in love with more than just the city.

Louis is more nervous than usual about filming the upcoming episode of Vogue’s 73 questions. Musician and soon to be actor Harry Styles may have something to do with that.

Murder, Romance, and Revolution (Steven Universe Theory)

Figured since Wanted came out, and The Trial started fanning the theory fire, my gears got turning and I thought I’d make another theory post. This time about The Big One, the case to end all cases, the grand whodunit, the biggest mystery of the show: what actually happened to Pink Diamond?

But instead of rushing into this throwing around speculation and conjecture from the get-go, I wanted to start by listing what we know, what the show has given us to work with, then deduce a theory from that. So here’s a list of what we know so far:

1) Something happened to Pink Diamond. That much is a given.

2) Everyone thinks Rose Quartz shattered Pink Diamond. Again, that much is a given.

3) Garnet spoke of Pink Diamond’s shattering as something that “had to happen” in Back to the Moon, and Pearl had a very visceral reaction too. This means that the Crystal Gems probably aren’t completely blameless in whatever happened.

4) Eyeball witnessed what she claims to be Rose Quartz shattering Pink Diamond. Stated in Back to the Moon, reiterated in The Trial. Further questions: Is that accurate? Secondly, are there any other witnesses?

5) Rose Quartz was a soldier, a low-ranking gem. Not part of Pink Diamond’s court. She would have had a hard time getting close enough to kill, and an even harder time getting out again. Confirmed by Zircon during The Trial.

6) Zircon implies that only another Diamond would have the authority to get close enough to shatter Pink. However, this is still conjecture. Blue Diamond is not suspect, unless her thousands of years of mourning were all for show. Yellow Diamond snaps, but outrage is not necessarily guilt. Curiously, the third Diamond (presumed White Diamond) is still absent, and isn’t even named, despite her imagery appearing prominently over the skyline.

7) Pink Diamond had a Pearl, who was seemingly ignored in all previous accounts of Pink Diamond’s murder. Confirmed by Zircon during The Trial. Further questions: Is Pink Pearl our Pearl, or is she another Pearl? If not, where is Pink Pearl now?

8) Eyeball claims to have witnessed Rose Quartz shatter Pink Diamond with a sword, the sword, the one that Steven inherited and gave to Connie. Specifically Rose Quartz, not a fusion. Not the giant sword wielded by the Temple fusion. Specifically Rose, specifically her sword. Stated first in Bubbled and reiterated in The Trial.

9) Rose’s sword is specifically designed not to be able to shatter gems, as stated by Bismuth in her titular episode. That was the reason she created the Breaking Point, which Steven referenced in The Trial. Given this, an attack from Rose’s sword would not have shattered Pink Diamond.

10) The rebellion continued long after Pink Diamond’s apparent shattering. Jasper, despite being created to serve Pink Diamond, emerged after her demise, and fought “from the moment she broke free” because of it. Since Jasper went on to become a war hero, a good portion of the war must have occurred after Pink Diamond’s apparent shattering. Further questions: Is Pink Diamond’s demise what started the rebellion in the first place? Or was it a turning point in an already ongoing war?

Given these facts, we can come up with a series of intriguing conclusions, which lead to a potentially solid account of what may have happened, and my own wild theory as to the deeper story behind it all (below the cut):

Temporary Accommodations by @comeonblub made waiting three hours for Windows to update bearable and is just a real good read all around

i’ve now watched three seasons of bojack horseman and i’m still unable to really put into words why i like this show. i mean, it’s funny, it’s socially conscious, it’s got great characters, it has a dark realism to it, it handles depression well. but i can’t– that’s not enough, somehow. i can’t explain how important this show feels to me. i guess the best way i can put it is that this show feels like i did the first time i went to therapy, which is the first time anyone ever said to me “what you’re feeling is real, and it matters, and you matter. you’re not alone, and it hurts for other people too. this is real and it’s not the end of the world”

it’s like validation, that relief that comes with 1. knowing you’re doing okay comparatively speaking and 2. knowing other people are hurting in the same way. and it’s like a horror show because while bojack’s antics are extreme and he’s living a life i’ll never understand, it makes me realize how easy it is to get lost in yourself. depression makes you selfish; it’s the dark counterpoint to arrogance. feeling like you’re different because you’re the worst person in the world isn’t any less selfish than thinking you’re the best, and that kind of self-centeredness hurts people 

it’s so easy to define yourself by your depression especially when you’ve been depressed for so long. i’ve been depressed since i was a teenager; it’s genetic. i have no idea who i would be without depression. would i be extroverted? would i have started writing if i didn’t feel like i had to escape into fiction? would i be happy? i don’t know. i’ll never know. and it’s easy to tell yourself that nothing matters and you don’t matter and that nothing will ever get better, and it’s easy to get caught in this hedonistic cycle of “self care”, and it’s easy to lash out and apologize and lash out and apologize because you think it’s that easy except it isn’t and you can’t blame all of your failings on your childhood or your mental illnesses. you can’t fetishize your own sadness

hello! i've only started following you in the past few months or so, but you're definitely one of my favorite artists. your work is so breathtaking! have you ever seen john singer sargent's murals? when i first saw your sanctus series, your digital brush strokes immediately made me think of sargent's murals at the museum of fine arts in boston! both have this absolutely ethereal quality to them, and i was wondering if you've ever studied his work!

I LOVE HIS MURALSSSSS GOSH DARN they’re FIRE I haven’t looked at them in a while, now that you’ve mentioned them to me I have to go back to look at them now! Now that I think about it, I’m closer to Boston than I was a year ago, so I probably have a higher chance of seeing them in person. I’m so excited right nowwww

I love looking at Sargent, he’s such a classic. Super flattered to see that you think of me and him in the same sentence! What a compliment and such a sweet thing to say, thank you very much! <3 sending virtual hugs your way!!

Why do anti gun retards always ignore reality and come up with "What-ifs" that literally never fucking happen and go WELL WHAT IF??? Like, their moronic shit NEVER matches up to reality, while pro-gun generally ALWAYS does. I've never seen any other topic so blatantly anti-fact and anti-basic fucking child tier common sense as anti-gun retards.

My favorite part is when they went “hurr the people pulling their guns did nothing” because they didn’t hit the shooter, ignoring the fact that they very likely scared him off and made him decide that 3 kills was enough.

Simply pulling a gun and firing (sometimes not even the latter) is enough of a deterrent to nip most crimes in the bud, if the criminal values their life at all.
