Top Twenty Favorite Male Characters

Sorry, this is out so late. I have been busy with a book project. My Muse is very moody about stories, and when she wants me to do a idea she won’t stop annoying until I do it. Anyway, here is the list of my twenty favorite male characters.

Who Shatter Pink Diamond?

Okay, so my theories about Pink Diamond and Rose Quartz being the same probably wrong after the last Steven Bomb, and I have been thinking about things. Obviously the big question now is who shatter Pink Diamond, and a second question I don’t see many people talk about. The question being if Rose Quartz didn’t shatter Pink Diamond why didn’t she tell that to the Crystal Gems?

Think about it. Why would Rose Quartz not tell anyone anyone she didn’t shatter Pink Diamond? There is no doubt in my mind that the Crystal Gems would believe her. Their trust in Rose solid. So, why didn’t she tell any of them?

Not to mention what happened to Pink Diamond’s court? More importantly where is her Pearl? I don’t Pearl from the Crystal Gems is her because she is white and all the diamonds’ pearls do match them. So Pink Diamond’s pearl should be pink. Yet, no one seem to have realize she was missing until Steven’s lawyer brought it up.

I think from a story and character view that Rose Quartz was involved in Pink Diamond shatter somehow, but how involved she was we don’t know. Maybe she and Pink Diamond were going to have some peace talks and someone shattered her to keep the war going on. Possibly someone used Rose to have her shattered Pink Diamond, and she found out. It would explain why she was against Bismuth shattering other gems. Death wouldn’t serve their purpose, she saw how Pink Diamond’s death made everything worse, and she wouldn’t wish for the gems to experience the same guilt she was feeling

That leads to the question who shattered Pink Diamond or help Rose Quartz do it? Let’s look at the top 3 suspects.

  1. Yellow Diamond- A lot of people think she might be the culprit because of the way she was acting at the trial. Personally, I think she is too obvious a suspect. I think her reaction comes from her denial of grief, and the burden of knowing something is off about the whole incident. Think about it. Peridot said her Diamond, Yellow Diamond, was smart. She might have drawn same conclusion in the trial, but not wanting to think of her sisters capable of doing this, she rather blame Rose Quartz because she thinks it would make easier to deal. It would also explain why she wants the cluster to destroy the earth and shatter all the Rose Quartz so badly. If they are all gone she won’t have to think about the truth.
  2.  Pearl- Pearl being the culprit would explain why Rose Quartz didn’t tell anyone why she didn’t shatter Pink Diamond. She was trying to to protect Pearl. Heck, Rose might blame herself since it’s possible Pearl shatter Pink Diamond to protect her. Blue Diamond said a sword did it, and Pearl is a sword fighter. The only problem with this theory is Steven. I can’t imagine Pearl allowing Steven’s imagine of his mother ruined because of actions she did. Not to mention that Pearl didn’t know all of Rose’s secrets. This could be one that she doesn’t know.
  3. White Diamond-  This is the possible suspect, but only because we don’t have a clue about White Diamond. As someone who watches a lot of mystery shows, I don’t like have a suspect because of a lack of information. Still, it’s important to note that she wasn’t at the trial. Did she not care about Pink Diamond? Was she afraid of the truth being known? I hope we get to see White Diamond soon so we get some information about her.

What do you think? Did Rose Quartz shattered Pink Diamond with the help of someone else? Did someone do it alone? Was it a set up? Let me know what you think in the comments below.

Top Twenty Favorite Female Characters

Okay so this is not really an accurate list since I did a lot of cheating with this and even created another list just so I could add more characters. I can’t help it there are too many characters that I love. Now I did prevent myself from not putting characters I have created on this list because then the whole list would have been about them, and every entry is just one franchise though there might be two from it. I also separated each list by gender so I could cheat to get more characters. So let’s start with my favorite female characters. Continue reading “Top Twenty Favorite Female Characters”

Steven Universe Pink Diamond Gemstone Theory Part II

You should probably click on this link if you haven’t read part one yet. We are all catch up now? Good.


So the latest Steven Universe bomb happened and I have decided we need to talk about possibility of Rose Quartz being Pink Diamond again. To be honest, I’m torn. On the one hand there is growing amount of evidence that Rose Quartz isn’t Pink Diamond, and from a story perspective if she isn’t, that leads to some interesting ideas.

I think it’s safe to say that the end game of Steven Universe is for home world to change thanks to Steven and there be peace between them and the Crystal Gems. If Rose Quartz did indeed shatter Pink Diamond that would make it more difficult and more interesting to see how Steven can bring this about.  There is even some suggestions why Rose Quartz maybe a little more special then other Rose Quartzs, if you look at Peridot. Thanks to the freedom of earth, Peridot discovers she can control metal. It’s possible some of the powers that I thought were associated with a Diamond just came about because Rose Quartz was free to discover herself.

But I’m not ready to give up on Rose Quartz being Pink Diamond just yet. For one thing, I would like to be right about a cartoon theory, but also there is strange evidence that she might be a Diamond even after we learn she supposedly shatter one.

In the episode Three Gems and A Baby, we learn about the first time Steven’s gem glows and the Crystal Gems reactive to it. What is interesting here is the framing, and how the creators chose to show it.

I can’t believe this is a coincidence since we had seen them subtlety hinting there was a Pink Diamond with all the background details about her before anyone even out right said anything about her. This could easily be foreshadow what Steven’s gemstone really is or more important what it’s going to be.

Hold that thought.

There is also the fact that Steven has a strange empathy power he shares with Blue Diamond. It’s possible that the Diamonds share this power with each other to know if one is upset of endanger, and could even explain how Yellow Diamond knew that Blue Diamond was at the station. Steven probably can’t feel Yellow Diamond’s feelings because being a very emotional person he can relate better to Blue Diamond’s grief. Not to mention that his powers are still developing, and Yellow Diamond seem determine not to feel her own grief.

There is also the issue of Bismuth. She wanted to create a weapon that could shatter the Diamonds and free all of Home World. Rose Quartz was very firm against the idea. I think it might be possible she didn’t want to shatter her own sisters. She just wanted to save the earth.

Another thing that is brought up is Rose Quartz keeping secrets. It clear that Rose Quartz did have a few plans for Steven. The obvious from Lion and all the things he takes Steven too. Is possible that Steven could be part of a long term plan of Rose Quartz?

There is also the biggest question of all: How did Rose Quartz shatter Pink Diamond? Bismuth tells us that her sword couldn’t cut through a gemstone, only the body. In fact, did Rose Quartz even have her sword when she shatter Pink Diamond? The weapon she can form is a shield. Maybe she threw her shield to shatter Pink Diamond, but that seems highly unlikely.

However, the biggest thing is Rose Quartz’s studies of change. She seems somewhat envies of the change that humans can go through to be better, and how the earth is always changing itself. That could mean she wasn’t happy at her station with Pink Diamond, but it’s hard to tell since we don’t exactly Rose Quartz purpose was on Home World. Maybe she wasn’t happy being Pink Diamond?

So here is a new idea what if Rose Quartz was Pink Diamond, but she became corrupted somehow. Her healing powers saved her from being totally corrupted, but in the process she changes into a Rose Quartz. Someone comes upon and think she has shatter herself, and she is sent on the run.

I can buy Pink Diamond turning Rose Quartz and no one realizing it. No one on Home World can seem to tell gems apart. Despite Blue Diamond ordering Ruby to be shatter for fusing with Sapphire she doesn’t recognize either of them when they are on a rescue mission to get Greg back. Yellow Diamond actually had to ask Peridot which one she was before realize she was on earth.

Maybe Rose Quartz can’t change back into Pink Diamond, but she is know free just how some gems are miserable being in Home World’s caste system, and the destruction power they are doing to the earth. She decides Home World must leave, but since her sisters won’t listen to her thinking she is just a plain Rose Quartz, she decides to force the issue with a war.

This could also explain why she never told the Crystal Gems. They might have very well accepted her story, but it was important for their own development not be influenced by a Diamond. How would the Crystal Gems feel knowing they had been following a Diamond all this time. They might question if they were really trying to be free to be themselves or were they just follow another Diamond’s wishes. Given devotion the Home World gems give to their diamonds this would be something that needed to come up.

Rose Quartz clearly needed to lead in the war and finding corrupted gems, but it’s clear that she didn’t want to lead like a Diamond. Maybe she starts being happier being a Rose Quartz. It’s possible that she knew Home world would come back someday, and I think she wanted to find a way to show them that gems can change, and that was okay.

Enter Steven. I think if my theory is right and Rose Quartz was Pink Diamond, but something happened to change her then it’s possible that Steven being half human could can back into a Diamond because humans naturally change. That could be one of the ways to unite the two worlds, and the Diamonds to realize she was right. That is not going to be easy for Yellow or Blue since they are still in state of grief, though they are dealing with it different ways. If they learn they had been fighting their sister all this time, it might devastated them. Who knows how White Diamond might react.

I think it’s safe to say there is more to the story of Rose Quartz and Pink Diamond even if they’re not the same person. I don’t think it’s a simple as the Home World version or even the Crystal Gem version. We might get some answers about it in two weeks in the episode Storm in the Room. Though I doubt all the questions fan have will be answered in that one episode. What do you think? Do you think Rose Quartz being Pink Diamond theory is dead? Or do you think there is some other explanation about how Rose Quartz and Pink Diamond are the same.

  6. I published two new books, The Blue Codex and The Silver Codex III: Woods Edition
  7.  I read a ton of new books

So yeah, all those were good things. Still this year has sucked over all, and I’m hoping that 2017 will somehow purify all this crap so we can have one of the best years ever! That is my hope. Here are some things that you can be looking forward to on this blog!

  • The Lotus Caretaker II- This will be the next book I publish, it’s just taking a long time to write it. Much longer then I original planned, but it will be written and it will be published sometime in 2017.
  • The Silver Codex IV- This is going to be the next book after The Lotus Caretaker II to come out. Slight Spoilish warning, something is going to happened that changes the entire universe. (Yes, all my books take place in the same universe.) So it only makes the most sense for this book to be next after The Lotus Caretaker II. If things go better for me in 2017, I might try to run a contest to have you all guess what edition this one will be, but that is a huge maybe.
  • The Blue Codex II: This is another huge maybe since I don’t know if I will be able to publish three books in one year, but I will definitely will get started on writing it in 2017. At the very least, don’t expect this book until November or December if it happens at all.
  • More vlogs- I will try to go to more interesting places and do more fun stuff so my vlogs aren’t boring. I will be getting a puppy in January so you will see her in my vlogs.
  • Blog posts- This one I’m going to need you help with. What kind of posts do you want to see more of on this blog. My thoughts about pop culture in general? More lists? Posts like the Eventide Speaker PSA? Let me know in the comments below, and I will do more of those kinds of posts. Hopefully, 2017 will give me more time to blog and vlog.

That is the general plan for 2017. I’m determine this blog and my books are going to positive and a welcoming place for everybody because if this year has taught me anything is that there not enough of that in the real world. Let’s pray it will be a better year in 2017.  What good things happened to you in 2016? What are your hopes for 2017? Leave your answers down in the comments below.

Eventide Speaker PSA: The Truth About Santa Claus

This was suppose to be a video of Xarissa and Hanlowa, but unfortunately G.A. lost the film while being attacked by demonic possessed elf toys. He should be out of the hospital in time for the holidays. So enjoy reading this transcript instead.


Xarissa and Hanlowa sit in front of a roaring fireplace with silver and black Christmas decorations all around them.  Xarissa wearing a silver Santa hat and ugly Christmas sweater. Hanlowa dressed in a black elf costume. 

Xarissa: Hi, I’m Xarissa Silverstone. Scribe of The Silver Codex and the Eventide Speaker.

Hanlowa: And I’m Hanlowa, Muse of Horror.

Lunette shouts off screen. 

Lunette: Why are you two doing a Christmas PSA? Your genre is horror. That doesn’t fit with Christmas.

Hanlowa: You would be surprise how much power I get this time of year.

Xarissa: Yeah, there is a shocking amount of horror Christmas stories like Gremlins, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and Black Christmas.

Hanlowa: Not mention one of the greatest Christmas stories is about four ghosts coming to scary a cheap skate until he gets his act together.

Lunette: I never noticed that before.

Hanlowa: This is why you need to stay behind the camera. You never really know what you’re talking about.

Xarissa: HANLOWA!

Hanlowa: *grumbles* I’m sorry.

Lunette: I will let it go because it’s the holidays.

Xarissa: On to the PSA, for many people Christmas is a terrifying time.

Hanlowa: Especially for parents who think it is time to tell their kids that Santa Claus is not real.

Xarissa: And that is what we are here to talk about today because you might be about to make a huge mistake.

Hanlowa: You probably going to tell your child that Santa Claus doesn’t exist, but the truth is that Santa Claus does exist.

Xarissa: See, Santa Claus is really St. Nicholas, who lived in 4th century who was a bishop that did many miracles in the name of our Lord include raising three children from the dead who were killed by a butcher.

Hanlowa: Therefore to say that Santa Claus doesn’t exist would be a lie. Really parents should just admit he is dead, and that we honor his spirit by giving presents. By denying his entire existence you’re denying all the love and kindness he gave into this world.

Xarissa:  And the reason you need to admit Santa Claus exist is because if people don’t give gifts with joy to others it will weaken Santa Claus’s power, and that would be bad.

Hanlowa: I’m sure many of you have heard of Krampus, though in true human fashion you got his story wrong. The truth is that Krampus tries to destroy the world every Christmas Eve so he can devour the souls of humanity like mozzarella cheese sticks.

Lunette shouts off screen. 

Lunette: That is the allegory you are going with?

Xarissa: I’m the one who came up with it.

Lunette: Oh, in that case. It’s great.

Xarissa: Anyway, one of the only things that can hold Krampus back is Santa Claus and La Befana working together to fight him off.

Thalia appears out of nowhere. 

Thalia: You can actually read about this one time that La Befana fought Krampus by clicking on the actually word here. As long as you have a kindle.

Hanlowa: Get out of our PSA, Thalia!

Thalia huffs, but disappears. 

Xarissa: Yes, and you can help them fight Krampus, because why Santa Claus doesn’t deliver toys like most mainstream media portrays him doing, he does come to houses on Christmas Eve to bless the gifts we give to each other so they might be used a protection against Krampus.

Hanlowa: It’s one of the reasons Christmas Presents feel special compare to other presents.

Xarissa: And that means helping out with toys drives so that even families that can’t afford gifts will have something under the tree to be blessed.

Hanlowa: Also all acts of kindnesses and hope done by children can fuel St. Nicholas and La Befana when they’re up against Krampus. So create an environment where those thing will flourish.

Xarissa:  Any acts that discourages kids from adults will feed into Krampus so don’t do that.

Hanlowa: And be honest with your kids about the nature of Santa Claus. That while he might be dead, his spirit lives on by the generosity and love of all mankind, and that it’s their time to help with the gift giving cause.

Xarissa: This has become especially important because our society’s cynical and greedy nature makes Krampus’s stronger and more difficult for Santa Claus and La Befana to fight.

Hanlowa: He is one of the purest evils, and he is always trying to find new ways to gain power. We even have reports that he is now using minions to help him, which will make things more difficult for St. Nicholas and La Befana. As long as a child cries he will always have a chance to claim victory some Christmas Eve.

Xarissa: So be honest with kids, give with a joyful heart, and don’t try to destroy the childish nature of the soul.

Hanlowa: Honestly, humanity would be better off if you all accepted the fact that you’re all children and allowed the world to be a playground like the Divine Good wanted the earth to be.

Thalia appears out of nowhere again. 

Thalia: Also buy all of Emily’s books! Buy The Lotus Caretaker! Buy The Blue Codex! And all of the Silver Codex series!

Hanlowa: THALIA! STOP DOING A COMMERCIAL IN OUR PSA OR I’M GOING TO TELL MOM ON YOU!

Xarissa: Who is this Emily she keeps talking about?

Hanlowa ignores Xarissa’s question. She runs around after Thalia with a butcher’s knife while Thalia defended herself with her shepherd cane. Xarissa shakes her head and looks straight at the camera. 

Xarissa: Merry Christmas Everyone.
