    Summary

    TIME SKIP AU: Eight years after Steven Universe decided to leave Beach City, he still hadn't found a place to settle down at. In fact- so many things happened within those eight years that the Gem found himself just drifting along with life at this point. Yet, after a series of events that led him to a small-time town in Iursant... Did he find a quaint little tea shop hidden away from the world. Located within mountain ranges, far away from any Gem activities and even to the point where there weren't any Gems in this town either- perhaps finally Steven found himself a place to settle down. Maybe with the help of a tea shop keeper, could he finally heal almost a decade's worth of PTSD and experience what it meant to be in an equally giving relationship with someone who actually could understand what the Gem had gone through.

    WARNING: This is a heavy songfic! If this isn't your 'cup of tea' (pun appreciation), sorry! But if you give it a chance, maybe you'd find something fun!

    Summary

    Why couldn't Pink Diamond and Rose Quartz be two different people? Who is to say Pink didn't shatter herself?

    This fanfic is not for the faintest of hearts. It involves the change of plot where Pink Diamond and Rose Quartz were two different Gems and Pink Diamond did in fact die because she shattered herself. There will be references to her suicide and discussions about what that means, how it affects the characters, and what it would mean following the logic established by the show. It's going to have a much happier ending than the summary might imply.

    If you are curious as to what could have been, join me on this journey because I'm not about to shy away from this idea. There are several chapters planned already, so keep an eye out if you like how this goes!

    Compared with me, a tree is immortal
    And a flower-head not tall, but more startling,
    And I want the one's longevity and the other's daring.

    Check out the rework, Magenta Me!

    I know that you mean so well, but I am not a vessel for your good intent.
    I will only break your pretty things. I will only wring you dry of everything.
    But you're fine with that.
    (Why are you fine with that?)

    Summary

    Sapphire, princess of Paragone, is promised to Prince Jamie of Estor, the richest kingdom on earth. On her twenty-first birthday, she is to be wed, and the two kingdoms will officially merge into one. Of course, as the princess should be used as currency, she should be protected against thieves. She should have a guard, who is to be close to her at all hours. They are to live like one person until the princess’ wedding night, eating, sleeping, and spending every moment together.

    This is the story of how Ruby, a lowly soldier, stole the heart of Paragone. It also happens to be a story of rebellion and eating the rich.

    Fairytale human AU, mostly Rupphire.

    UPDATE: Chapters will always be short and there will be more of them, at least, for now.

    Summary

    "Imagine the social world as a physical space, and then imagine a map of the space representing a soldier's sense of social connectedness. How does this map change after someone above the soldier violates 'what's right'? [Soldiers] fight mainly for their comrades; this has become conventional wisdom even among civilians. Prolonged exposure to danger and the profound strain of battle compel this contraction of loyalty to some degree in every war. However, soldiers sometimes lose responsiveness to the claims of any bonds, ideals, or loyalties outside a tiny circle of immediate comrades. . . [the soldier's] social horizon, in the midst of lethal dangers to them all, has contracted."

    -- "Shrinkage of the Social and Moral Horizon" from Achilles in Vietnam
