what's real anymore

I’m hearing people say that that it doesn’t add up that pearl and garnet are ashamed when we learned the Rose supposedly shattered pink diamond since she was framed so let’s look at some reasons why they’d react like this

1. Rose intentionally mislead them to think she had done it

- maybe Rose didn’t like to talk about it so they assumed the rumors were true

- (maybe she was a witness? Maybe she took the fame it got bc it got more info about the rebellion out?)

- maybe Rose lied about it to keep whoever shattered Pink diamond safe (maybe it’s someone on the inside? We still haven’t seen White Diamond.)

2. Pearl might have been involved with it (I’ve always assumed she belonged to pink or white diamond but we don’t know) and her and Rose both lied to keep Pearl safe, then she just got used to keeping the cover.

3. They knew no one would listen if they suggested a diamond shattered her

Idk how possible any of these are, but I’m just thinking of some ideas of what could’ve actually happened since it changes every other day.

I’d love to hear some other ideas!

Tikki is struck by modern times and learns that sweets can, indeed, make up every meal.

It’s April. The holidays have been over for almost four months. My mind lives unbound by the sands of time. I was hit by this at like 7 in the morning.

anyways why make steven visibly have legitimate problems with connecting his human and his gem side only to have the first human he expresses that to be the goddamn racist uncle instead of idk maybe greg or connie

yeah maybe he wants to “know more about his family” but greg is clearly his family, not to mention that it seems like a flimsy excuse since steven’s never mentioned wanting to know more about his family before??

in a world where you have your true love tattooed on one wrist and your sworn enemy on the other, and you dont know which is which...

CINDER
-k so her wrists are obviously kai and levana
-and when she was little she thought Kai was some terrible person she would loathe bc true love could mean romantic love or platonic love or familial love and Aunt Levana would never hurt her!!! Right???
-So she would follow around Levana, trying to spend as much time with her as possible, bc she knew her and Aunt Levana would have the most incredible aunt-niece relationship ever.
-hahaha but post-almost being burned alive, Peony is obsessed with Cinder’s wrists bc Kai!!! Like the prince!!!!!!
-meanwhile Pearl and Adri scornfully remind her that Kai is a common name, its probably some peasant
-and Cinder tries her best to stay impartial. Her gloves not only hide her cyborg hand but her tattoos as well, and she actually forgets about them for a long period of time….
-and then she meets the prince. And oh shit. Ohhhh shitttt
-cinder isnt the best at romantic interaction, and she cant tell if that was flirting?? He probably hates her, shes a cyborg…
-and the mission to figure out whats on his wrists begins
-but why is he always wearing long sleeves??
-and the night of the ball, she finally sees one of his wrists! and it says levana. Oh dear
-so all of a sudden shes in jail and kai and levana are getting married and her place is quite clear…but why is levana the other name on her wrist?
-so what keeps cinder going, all throughout scarlet and cress, is that they have to be soulmates. Theres no other way.

KAI
-hes got Cinder/Levana
-and when hes a little kid and hasnt met either, he always kinda hopes cinder is the true love because the name just sounds so much…warmer
-then the whole arranged marriage starts happening and kai’s like…idk bout this…but the wrists dont lie…
-but then he meets cinder and its just!!! marry me!!!
-and then he realizes it…one of these girls is his sworn enemy…
-shit shit shit shit shit shit shit
-but things seem to solve themselves when Cinder is arrested and becomes known as a terrorist
-except levanas definitely not his soulmate? Bc most soulmates dont want to kill you…
-and so its an internal battle because besides the wrists he knows both have glamours powerful enough to control his feelings
-some nights he lays in his bed and just kinda cries bc he doesnt know whats real anymore
-but when they kidnap kai from the wedding and theres finally some time to talk to cinder, she shows him her wrists
-and theyre like “either its u and me or we re fighting to the death over levanas affection”
-so that becomes an inside joke of theirs, and kais always like “hahaha im winning” leading up to his marriage w levana
-but they act like in love idiots throughout winter bc they now theyre soulmates

Thats kaider for yall, imma do the other ships on other posts to avoid longness

i headcanon kaz has a specific laugh inej pines after too. i always tend to write kaz’s “rare, unrestrained laugh” in my things because he does laugh often. he has a dry, humorless laugh like dead leaves. and there’s at least one instance when he “bursts out laughing” that i imagine sounds quite maniacal. so maybe just maybe inej (and jesper) listen closely to hear the REAL one. and you can’t tell me inej doesn’t get flustered when she hears it
