After watching Catch and Release, I’ve come to realize something. 

Peridot acts much more immature, when in a situation she’s not used to - she’s frightened, she’s aggressive, she loses her social skills. Some have interpreted this as her being childlike, similar to Amethyst’s seemingly “younger” personality in the flashback episodes. But this doesn’t match her previous portrayals, or her mature body type - she’s in no way coded as something that should be treated like a child.

So why does she act like that? Why did Amethyst act like that back in the day? Why would gems act less mature than they usually are? Well…

… Look at how they walk.

Look at how they act.

Look at them when they’re taken off-guard, or frightened, or excited.

Gems aren’t childlike.

They’re beastlike.

All of them, in different ways.

They snap their jaws to show aggression, they show an animalistic combination of caution and curiosity when dealing with new objects and places, they even run on all fours when distracted. Fear makes them not just aggressive, but outright vicious and murderous, like mindless attack dogs. They occasionally have feline and canine physical traits, like fangs and glowing eyes. Younger!Amethyst literally went running after a thrown stick.

Amethyst, Peridot and Jasper, all presumably Kindergarten gems, seem to be the most prone to this, while Pearl, Ruby, Sapphire and Rose appear to be more civilized, likely as a result of having been regular Homeworld citizens trying to survive in a very uptight, controlled society for a long time. They’re used to restraining themselves from acting too savage. Lapis has an animalistic mindset ruled by emotion and impulsiveness, guarded by a civilized facade, reflecting her powers and element. She always seems more mentally present, even when upset, because she almost always has the upper hand and thus doesn’t feel the panic of a cornered animal.

Try rewatching an episode with the mindset of “these are extremely intelligent cats and dogs who were taught human-like standards of social etiquette.” It solves a surprising amount of questions regarding their occasional lack of maturity/manners/empathy/etc., unifying the traits normally associated with different human age groups.

Among them, why Peridot turns into a squeaky, slap-y menace when frightened. She’s got the survival instincts of a wild animal, with none of the strength. She’s like a housecat.

Tl;dr: gems have instincts and traits similar to felines/canines. Moments of immaturity happen when a gem hasn’t developed the social skills to deal with a situation in a civilized manner (due to fear, excitement, anger, lack of self-discipline, etc.), causing them to act like wild animals - which is often misinterpreted as “childlike” because we’re not used to seeing adults react in such an animated, uncontrolled way.

Why does Yurio want to win so badly?

Yurio has spent much of the series saying how he wants to win and how he’s going to become the best in the world. Most people have attributed this desire solely to Yurio’s personality and just the way he is.

However, that’s not correct. Yurio wants to win… because he needs money. Now before you keep scrolling because you think that’s ridiculous, hear me out and keep reading.

If you guys haven’t scrolled through the Yuri!!! on Ice official website, you should do that sometime. 

Wait… let’s take a close look…

Not since he’s junior days… since his rookie days… since the beginning. Yurio’s whole skating career has been so that he can provide for his family. The earliest we see Yurio skating competitively was age 12. A twelve year old, and maybe even younger, was the primary source of income for his family. Can you imagine the pressure on Yurio as he competes? No wonder he said he would throw everything away to skate when Lilia told him to. No wonder he put six jumps, a “death wish”,  in the second half of his free skate. Yurio is desparate. He want’s to win so he can provide a better life for his family. 

congratulations jensen ackles on your PCA!

Do you see this ghoul man. He loved the pre-war radio show Silver Shroud so much that he asks you to go get the silver shroud costume so he can complete his crime fighting detective cosplay and go dispense justice like his favorite TV hero. Even though you end up wearing the costume and becoming Silver Shroud, Kent does so much to help He runs a channel on the radio and basically does #callout posts and you go doxx the villains in their own territory. Then he gets captured and tortured (why would you hurt him first of all) and if you save him he sounds so upset bc he got more than he bargained for and he just wants to go home. You can use your best silver shroud voice and convince him to keep up the good work and then he gives you this dopey ass happy really-believes-in-you-as-a-person smile and it kills me I’m already crying looking at this picture

Kent is the reason dear hearts and gentle people plays on the radio. Kent is the reason I am going to make the wasteland a better place

Why I think Yuri!!! on Ice is revolutionary

I think we can all agree that YOI deviates from your generic, “fujobaiting” anime we commonly see. We are only halfway through this anime, yet it’s already delivered so many fresh, new things to us. And I think the last half of YOI is going to get even better, with hopefully Victuuri being a canon relationship (if you still don’t believe so already lol). So what does this all mean?

I personally believe that YOI is setting the stage for Japanese animators to become more open with how they present their LGBT characters. We don’t know for sure, but with YOI’s solid popularity and overwhelmingly positive reception, I think YOI will leave its mark in the anime industry for sure.

Let’s discuss all the ways YOI is groundbreaking. 

1. Gay/same sex attraction

Sexuality is important in YOI. It’s the driving factor of Yuuri’s growth and building of confidence. We can plainly see his attraction to Victor (do I even need examples XD) and Victor’s attraction back.

But what about other characters?

This takes place in the first episode, and it immediately struck me. Everyone is mesmerized by Victor; even the men! This is very important because it is placing male same sex attraction alongside heterosexual attraction; it treats the two sexualities as equals. This scene directly places the men’s attraction to Victor as being just as valid as the girls’.

Also, we get this tidbit from episode 6:

We see Yuuri lick his lips seductively, and that is the announcer’s reaction. Again, more casual placement of homosexual attraction. There is no punch line or anything. YOI has established same-sex attraction as something positive, and natural so if it happens, it isn’t a bad thing. Now tell me, how many other anime have done this with such sophistication?

ADULT ACTORS PLAYING TEENAGERS

HEY JUST A LITTLE TRIVIA FOR YOU

I SAW A POST SAYING THAT THE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY HIRES ADULT ACTORS TO PLAY TEENAGERS SO THEY CAN SET UNREALISTIC STANDARDS ON HOW A TEENAGER SHOULD LOOK LIKE (like, they hire kids to play kids, and adults to play adults, but teenagers are usually adults too)

WHILE THIS NOTION MAY BE AN EFFECT OF THIS “PHENOMENON”, IT’S NOT WHY THE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY DOES IT.

SOME POINTS I’D LIKE TO RAISE

FIRST, SHOOTING/FILMING REQUIRES YOU TO WORK LONG HOURS.

SECOND, THEY HIRE ADULT ACTORS TO PLAY TEENAGERS BECAUSE MINORS ARE USUALLY ONLY ALLOWED TO WORK A LIMITED NUMBER OF HOURS (as required by labor laws) AND SECURING A WORK PERMIT FOR THEM IS MUCH MORE COMPLEX.

THIRD, OBVIOUSLY, THEY CAN’T HIRE ADULT ACTORS TO PLAY KIDS, BECAUSE THAT IS TOO FAR OF A STRETCH, SO THEY HAVE TO HIRE ACTUAL KIDS. HOWEVER, HIRING ADULT ACTORS TO PLAY TEENAGERS IS USUALLY PASSABLE, AND IS EASIER AND MORE EFFICIENT.

LONG HOURS + LESS COMPLICATIONS + SOMEWHAT BELIEVABLE = ADULT TEENAGERS

SO THERE YOU GO

I’ve seen a bunch of people reblogging that post about not treating lgbtq+ identities like fashion trends and just…

that post makes me so mad. it has so many gross truscum implications (*cough*“transtrending”*cough*) and what the post is criticizing is people who celebrate being mogai, and there is literally nothing wrong with that!?!? why can’t people think their identity rocks? why can’t they celebrate their identity? and what is so wrong with trying different identities? explore your gender. explore your sexuality. stop telling mogai people that they are treating it like a “fashion trend” because that has really gross implications whether you realize it or not.

seeing all these popular bpd posts makes me wonder why its okay for a non-bpd person to have these symptoms and feelings, but as soon as someone with bpd does, it’s manipulative, abusive, whatever-else-bullshit-description-constantly-used-for-us 

i mean its probs hardcore stigma but w/e

PSA: BULLYING (PLEASE READ)

“it hurts more than anything”

“people might thinks it’s funny or something but it really really hurts”

“i don’t understand why people are so mean to me”

“i can’t sleep at night because of this sometimes”

words spoken by a boy after years and years of relentless teasing and bullying

this is a little bit of a long story so take from this post what you will but regardless, this is very important and if you take the time to read this, it would be very much appreciated.

i have this friend, who we’ll call derek. he is the strongest person i know. he’s intelligent and friendly and good-hearted person. he also gets picked on for everything he does. from the way he talks, the stuff he says, what he posts on social media, the way he presents himself, anything you can think of.

upon finding out our homerooms for next year today, the other kids in derek’s class said things like “ew why are you in my homeroom” and “ughhhH he’s in our homeroom” and proceeded to scoot away from him. derek sat down with a group of kids at the front of the auditorium and they immediately stood up and moved to a new seat to avoid sitting next to him.

this has been going on for as long as i can remember - since i came to this school in 2009 and bullies refuse to relent. it breaks my heart to see someone as friendly as him look so broken and feel so down and:

this is where i need your help

please reblog this showing your support for him. if you could leave a message for him on this post letting him know that you support him, that would mean the absolute world to me.

my goal is to turn this into a giant thread of everyones messages to him and show him to hopefully cheer him up. thank you in advance x

Ok so I have a theory guys (and I apologize this is a long post)

So if you haven’t go down and read the theory I just reblogged cause this might make a little more sense if you do

So in the theory I reblogged it said that the owner of the wand has a companion and stuff, and they said that when the queen had the wand her companion might have been Toffee and stuff like that

But what I don’t get is how does Toffee know so much about Star and the royal family? And why does he want revenge so bad? But then I saw a post on Instagram about how the sword that the body guard is holding in the picture above is in a lot of the episodes (Cheer up star, quest buy)

And if you think about it that body guard was probably the only person she got to spend time with when she was growing up because her parents had royal stuff to do

And then it got me thinking back to the wand and companion theory

What if the body guard IS Toffee?

I know it sounds crazy but listen, if the body guard is toffee and was the queens companion and stuff it would make sense because Toffee knows so much about the family and star and the wand so that’s how he probably knew how to destroy it.

And if something happened between the body guard and the queen and she got angry and turned him into a lizard or whatever toffee is that might be why he wants revenge on the family for ruining his life

Or he realized that the wand is too powerful for anyone to own so he tried to stop the queen and she used it against him and that’s why he wanted to destroy it. And the body guard looks buff so maybe when toffee re-grew his arm it was 2 times more buffer than it was.

And also how come we’ve never seen this body guard in the show at all except for in flashbacks? Idk guys you can think I’m crazy but

That’s just my theory👌✌️

recently I reblogged a post about how garnet never has been as thoroughly dissected as amethyst or pearl and ppl rather leave her at “she’s cool n tough” and how it sucks because she does have her own issues that have been seen in the show but ppl still don’t give too much attention to them 

 and I think I know why 

 I think it’s because people were TOO preoccupied with her being a fusion, both before and after it was revealed, so people are not thinking of her as a whole character in the first place.

Before I considered getting lingerie (it’s my first time wearing it btw), I had some niggling thoughts: You’re Indian, You’re married, You’re going to be showing more of yourself than you ever have. My culture is not supposed to shame me. My heritage is not supposed to pin me down. My marital status does not mean I cannot discover my body positivity in My way. My brand of body positivity may not be for everyone, and I respect that. I come from the pov where I feel modesty or nudity can be beautiful. That’s just how I think. Will I ever post a nude? No. Why? It’s a personal choice. I don’t have to show all of my body to be body positive. Body Positivity is a frame of mind, it is a way of life that should not shame anyone for their personal choices. I have learnt so much through this shoot. I felt shy and vulnerable. I also felt powerful and body beautiful. I can feel just as body positive in a fully covered up outfit. The choice of how I dress myself is up to me. Don’t ever feel pressured to have to shed clothing or to cover up. Do what fulfils You in your brand of body positivity. I’m wearing my good old bra from La Senza in this image, as a reaffirmation of what the lingerie shoot taught Me - it taught me to be less fearful of some parts of me that I have always been shamed for.

Made with Instagram
[Totally Confirmed] For Luhan's birthday, Xiumin allowed Luhan to dress him up as a girl and take pictures, just for fun. The folder of photos remained safely on his phone, until yesterday, when he accidentally sent it to Kai when attempting to send him a folder of pictures of cute puppies he had seen in LA. Kai gawked at the gallery for a long time before messaging Luhan back, asking who the gorgeous girl was and if he could have her number. Luhan responded angrily that Kai shouldn't even joke in that way, causing Kai to be confused. Kai later confided to Chanyeol that he thought he might have a crush on the person Luhan was dating. Today, a post appeared on pcy-ferretking reading, "I want to like Xiumin, he is a great hyung. But why does Kai like him so much more than me? I am upset."

Severus Snape

I need to get opinions about him out of my system, because I see so many posts about him that upset me.

Just because I really love Snape does not mean I think everything he did was right. Snape haters just love instantly saying he is a bad person because of the mistakes he has made, but you need to think about WHY he made all the bad decisions he made.

He made his own bed with Lily. I will say that much. He said things he shouldn’t have because jealousy took over. He also should not have bullied students at Hogwarts. That was wrong of him, and I don’t stand by that. 

But please just think deeply for a minute about WHY he joined the death eaters and acted out the way he did.

It was rumored that he was abused when he was home, and he was bullied at school. He never felt accepted anywhere or by anyone (other than Lily).. so when Lily was out of his life, he had no one to turn to. The death eaters welcomed him with open arms (like many misunderstood Slytherins) and all Snape wanted to feel was accepted. At that point, he was desperate to be accepted somewhere.. even if he knew what the group was doing was wrong.

What matters about Snape is that he did change and go back to his original roots. Snape was a good person deep down, he just made many mistakes that took him down the wrong road.. and he acted out badly because of how he was treated by his peers. I have a theory that when Dumbledore was talking to Draco on the astronomy tower that he was talking about Snape as the “boy who made all the wrong choices,” not Voldemort. He wanted to stop Draco before he did something he regretted, because he knew Snape regretted everything he did SO much. He also knew that Draco was good deep down, much like Snape.

People love saying Snape was an obsessive freak who just wanted to get in Lily’s pants. There was never any evidence that Snape wanted to be with Lily sexually. Just because you love someone, it does not mean you want to instantly get in their pants. He wasn’t obsessive because she rejected him, he was obsessive because he couldn’t get over the mistakes he made that basically got her killed. He wanted to make up for what he did wrong. That’s why he was still torn up about everything. He felt guilty. That’s why he made sure to protect Harry until he died. It had nothing to do with him just having an obsessive crush. It had to do with guilt and him truly regretting what he did to Lily. He deeply loved her, and that does not make him a creep. If someone you deeply loved was killed, and you potentially helped them get killed, you probably wouldn’t let it go easily either.

I’m not trying to make excuses for the things he clearly did wrong, I’m just saying not to instantly hate on him so much. Snape is a person too, and people do make mistakes. People are going to have opinions, no matter what I say, but I just wanted to get this out. 

Snape was not perfect. None of us are. You just need to take into consideration why he was the way he was before you judge.
