My wife is still pretty mindblown about the SU twist. My only real observation is that this means only Pearl ever fused with Rose, because the other gems would have instantly known what they were fusing with and the secret would be out. But then Amathyst fused with Steven and should know, but maybe her being too young to remember and Steven's half human nature muddied those waters?

I think its interesting that this confirms my intuition that there is a lot more to her than it seems at first glance.

Also, Pearl-ception was kind of weird.

The thing is, they've all fused into obsidian (the lady on the temple)

It's meta data as far as that goes.
We've not seen it in the show directly, it's word of god.

Then yeah, I have no idea how the other Crystal Gems don't know about Rose's secret. Unless Diamonds have more control over what they share during a fusion than other gems.

It's probably that her part just kept quiet in the fusion. I mean, it HAD to be noisy in that head.

Diamonds are op afterall.

And in regards to the speculators, thats kinda what happens with any show that has any level of mystery ever. People just throw out as many ideas and people group around them. Theres bound to be a smug group by the end of it.

Anyway, gimme white diamond, and the peridot lapis fusion. Stop sending her further away u-u

For all we know, she can do something like Pearl (the Pearl-ception) did but in a much stronger scale with being a Diamond and all. :V

Nevertheless, I'm pretty shocked with the twist ending being true from a plethora of SU theories I read in the net (and seeing all the foreshadowing from even back 3 years ago :takei: ).

Now, how would they cap it all off with next season being supposedly the last...

I haven't watched Steven Universe since like, over a year ago I think. It was the end of Season 3 maybe? Kinda want to go back and start watching again.

As for Infinity War... I knew how it ended but I didn't expect some parts of it. Man.

I'm about to drop an unpopular opinion.

Boredom has me re-reading my New 52 issues of Suicide Squad. And...I think I like this continuity's Joker, in terms of his motivation and relationship to Harleen. Joker's mania here seems rooted in the need for a sense of control in an unstable world, which carries loads of narrative potential that may or may not have been explored. I haven't read further in New 52 than Suicide Squad or Deathstroke; the Justice League series from this continuity turned me off from the rest of it.

The only real problem I've got with the Nu52 joker is the bit where he cut off his own face.

Something more experimentational than usual:

Modern Theogony

Ancient Galaxies, you are the openers of the way. Your songs are the tapestry of my thoughts, my words, my actions. Your weave Light and Dark into a strange prophecy, of waxing and waning, of Heat and Stillness. Your hairs are the strings of Plasma and your veins our flesh. Ancient strings and gyres, move the tapestry before my eyes, so I may sing more clearly. Move me to extremes, and guide me through these spells.
First, there was Light. It was an ocean of white fire, and within it was born Day, the far-reacher and far-darter, the first emanation. Energy burst forth from Day, spawning Plasma and Heat. These offspring of Day smithed the various metals and gases.

Then, the Light cooled, and in its absence Darkness was born. At its heart was Night, old and young at once, Stillness, Entropy and Decay. These meddled with the formed materials, but encited the wrath of the Light and its brood, who waged a bitter war.

Plasma and Heat smithed countless Stars and Galaxies, spreading Day's reach across the universe. Some of their constructs were cooled off by Darkness and its children, becoming the various Planets, Asteroids and Moons. Water was a token of peace to the Darkness made by the Light, and it was knowledge personified. It spread in many forms, birthing Air, Ice, Rivers, Lakes, Seas. From it Time and Space were born, flowing the universe like their progenitor.



Not fully satisfied due to the intense glare of the stars, Darkness cooled some of them into Black Holes. The Light, in turn, enlightened them to become White Holes. Day birthed Dawn, and Dawn birth Order; Decay and Day birthed Dusk as a herald of Night, and the later two mated to produce Silence.



Air and Heat mated to birth the Winds, and with them Breath. Breath enveloped the nascent worlds, wanting to shape them as Water and its children did. So on each world it bargained with the Light, and in most worlds this bargain was refused. On a few it was accepted, however, and Life was allowed to be seeded.



Night blessed Life with Sleep, while its children cursed it with Death, Disease and Suffering. Heat and Plasma were angered and birthed Fire and Lightning, while the Dawn granted Healing and Love. But Dawn and Day gave Life Aging, so that Order would be maintained; Harmony was born.



Life multiplied itself into countless Species, which in turn turned to the children of Light and of Darkness to produce their own offspring. These were vast in number, but are ultimately lesser gods in the turnings of Fate.



You, Galaxies and Stars, are the eyes of the Light and see this war to its end, in a black still sea or in a blazing return to the beginning. As above, so below, which is why the pettiness of the gods is felt within me, as is their grace.



A libation to you, from the Demiurge son of Man.

Youtube just shoved this in my face and I thought it was pretty cool:

In case you have 2,5 min. of time to kill and want to empty your brain for a bit :V

(Sorry, embedding the video doesn't seem to work for some reason...)

Yeah I saw that on Reddit. I wish we could get Josh Brolin as the voice of Nicol Bolas.




Also, I caught up on Steven Universe the past few days. Show is still good.

Whelp... I bought a Dominaria Bundle on a whim today.

Got a Karn and a Teferi along with another mythic and also a foil rare...

Didn't expect that

I was just running out of boxes to store cards, and the price was mislabeled as $20 (I didn't feel like whining when I got to checkout).
