...because I saw someone talking about it on the interwebs, saying how nationalism and patriotism were the same. And it got me thinking about it (3/3).

A nationalist is proud of their no matter what it does. Even if the country does some horrible. Big difference. There are more differences but I only wanted to say my thoughts (2/3)...

History has always been my favorite subject in school, especially during high school. It helps us understand the past and how society functioned during periods of prosperity and despair. It can also be interpreted differently, which allows us to have a discussion about that difference in perspectives. History are stories of us. Stories that were not made up by an author looking for fame and recognition by the masses. They are based on something and/or someone in time that had enough impact on the world to change the direction of history. It is also fascinating to think about the "what ifs." What if President John F Kennedy survived the assassination attempt? Would he had been a great or a terrible president? Could the Space Age lasted a bit longer under the Kennedy administration? You see, there are so many questions that will be left unanswered if we didn’t know what the past was like.

Overall, history is the most interesting subject that I have learned during middle and high school because of how meaningful it is to humanity. It expands our perspectives on things while we are learning how everything came into place. It helps us form our own moral sense of what is right and wrong, good and evil. And history can make us understand the past, how we came to existence, and why we are living with the decisions made in the past. We would of never been able to understand the struggles of the people from the Middle Ages since they did not have cell phones or electricity without history. It's important to appreciate the things that we take for granted.

And people often talk about how they want to buy a time machine so they could visit the past. Why would you want to do that? We already have the perfect time machine: the history book.

I am not feeling too good about the concept being accepted. I will leave since I have no other ideas to work on (because I don't read comics that much).

Steven sat in front of the television with a bowl of cereal beside him. He turned on the tv to watch the Saturday morning cartoons. That's what he did every single Saturday. Amethyst joined in whenever she wasn't on a mission while Pearl and Garnet were off doing something else. He wondered what they were talking about sometimes but he didn't bother to ask. They avoided his questions and went outside or into the temple itself.

But, this Saturday was different.

He heard the wrap pad activating and saw that the Crystal Gems returned for one of their latest missions. Garnet held a sunstone gem on her hand before bubbling it away. "You should have been more careful, Amethyst." Pearl turned to Amethyst

Nothing mind.

Life and death and love and birth,
And peace and war on the planet Earth.
Is there anything that's worth more
Than peace and love on the planet Earth?

Powers And Abilities
Half Gem - Steven is a hybrid of Rose Quartz and Greg Universe and has several abilities that a pure Gem has, but not all of them. For example, he's capable of using the wrap pads and bubble objects and gemstones with such ease. However, he isn't able to shapeshift and cannot retreat into his gem when he is seriously wounded. But, he can summon a shield, which bears a striking resemblance to Rose Quartz's shield, and a bubble that changes sizes. Unfortunately, he hasn't learned to control his magical abilities, which fluctuate erratically from time to time because of his emotions. If he is happy, then his abilities tend to work as intended; however, if he's angry or sad, the abilities will either malfunction or fail entirely.

Fusion - Fusion is when two or more are bonded into one single entity that's completely unique and special. The minds and bodies become one new gem that's different to already existing gems. For example, Garnet is the fusion of Ruby and Sapphire and doesn't look and act exactly like a non-fusion Garnet. Of course, other gems can fused like Pearl and Amethyst and unfuse at any moment. Garnet chooses to remain fused because Ruby and Sapphire love each other and can't stand being apart; but, fusion isn't inherently romantic and can represent other relationships like friendship. And in order to fuse, a Gem must be in perfect sync mentally, physically, and emotionally.

If one of them is unbalance, it can lead to an unstable fusion. An unstable fusion is the result of clashing personalities like Sugilite. Being unstable can also lead to de-fuse when a fusion is experiencing an overwhelming emotion or conflicted with an opinion. And there are forced fusions which are responsible for the creation of Gem Mutants, gem shards that are binded together at the edges instead of changing colors and appearances. They are shattered to the point that they are unaware of themselves, nor what they are doing. Finally, there are the corrupted gems. Gems that were impacted by the Corrupting Light, a cataclysmic event and final assault after Pink Diamond's shattering, became corrupted in the matter of seconds.

Almost all members of the Crystal Gems and some members of Homeworld were hit by the light and transformed into monsters. Corrupted Gems behave like wild animals and exhibit behaviors like feeding and predation. And they lose their basic powers like summoning their weapons and shapeshift. With thousands of them roaming around the world, the remaining Crystal Gems made it their duty to containing them before they harm someone. In order to prevent them from regenerating, the corrupted must be proofed into their gem and contained by a bubble. And if the bubble isn't broken, then its teleported to the Templar and kept out of human intervention.

Half Human - At the end of the day, Steven is still a human being that needs to eat and sleep unlike gems. The reason why the Crystal Gems haven't made him one of their members is the lack of protection. If his shield and bubble are damaged, then it could leave him in a vulnerable state that could get him hurt or killed. Because of that risk, Garnet and Pearl taught him how to wield the shield and sword that his mother once used for defense. He would rather find peaceful solutions and treats his sword as the last resort. As for education, Steven is currently home-schooled due to an incident that took place in the six grade which got him expelled. Greg, with help from Pearl, decided to enroll his son in home school afterwards.

And thanks to Pearl, he was taught to understand Gem language, a native language that Homeworld uses. Also, he can fuse with other gems and possibility with other people (only if he has bonded with them).

Origin And Backstory
Rose Quartz, the leader of the Crystal Gems, sacrificed her physical form in order to give birth to her son, Steven Quartz Universe. Greg Universe, wife of Rose Quartz, took his son away for the Crystal Gems to let them mourn in peace. For the first years of his life, Greg and his close friend, Vidalia, took care of the child. He wanted to own a proper house and not rely on Vidalia too much, but he couldn't afford one in Beach City. So he went to the Crystal Gems because their base, the Crystal Temple, was a perfect place to build a beach house and asked for their permission.

Garnet, the new leader of the Crystal Gems, agreed on the condition that Steven lives with them since he is a human/gem hybrid. And soon, the other two members met Steven for the first time. Amethyst immediately liked Steven while Pearl didn't know how to feel about the child. After the house was constructed, Steven and Greg moved in while Vidalia wanted to raise a family of her own. And nine years of growth and development passed before Greg moved back into his van. He still took care of his son, but he couldn't stand living with the Crystal Gems especially Pearl. Meanwhile, the Crystal Gems began to teach him about his potential powers and how to wield Rose Quartz's sword when he turned eleven without his father's knowledge.

At first, Steven didn't believe that he possessed his mother's power until one day during lunch. He saw that some eight graders were teasing a six grader and decided to step in between. The eight graders focused their attentions on Steven and looked to start a fight with him. In response, he formed a bubble that sent them flying across the library. The librarian saw the aftermath and sent both of them to the principal's office. The eight graders told what happened to the principal and he expelled Steven. Greg was understandably upset and questioned his son about it.

Steven didn't say anything until Amethyst accidentally revealed to training him. He tried to calm his father down, but he didn't listen and demanded an explanation for Garnet. She defended her choice to train Steven and lie to his father about it. Pearl made the situation worse with her snide remarks towards him. Greg had enough dealing with them and told Steven to come with him. But, he refused since he wanted to know more about his mother and the gems. He tried once more to convince his son to come with him, but he refused to leave. Greg did not agree with his son's decision, but he understood wanting to know who Rose Quartz was.

You know what? I might save Steven Universe for FusionFall depending on what the GM says about my plans. In the case that my idea isn't approved, then I am planning for...

Or some other comic that gets my attention like Red Team or The Mercenary Sea.

Black Friday. November 23rd, 2017. The day that many analysts consider to be the busiest shopping day of the year because retailers offer various sales to entice traffic and earn a few money dollars. As the result, millions of customers wait in the cold until the morning of Black Friday. Even known people tend to end up with injuries, the event seemed to be going smoothly. Until something horrible happened two days later. That was when sudden spikes of hospital admissions occurred all over cities like Los Angeles and New York City. Everyone had the common symptoms found in a cold (fever, sore throat, etc.) and doctors just sent them home with prescriptions. By the time that officials noticed something wrong, the first deaths took place a day after going to hospitals.

When the death troll reached one hundred, the Central Disease Control entered protocol and began their investigation into the outbreak. Unfortunately, it had become such a problem that schools and universities were closed indefinitely. And in the hopes of containing the outbreak, the country closed down the border and forced transports into lockdown. The National Guard begun to setup makeshift camps for the inflected and non-inflected while maintaining order with the local authorities. When the citizens started to resist their efforts, the military came to assist them while imposing martial law. Citizens that defied the new law were executed and made examples.

And with the closing of the United State of America's borders, the world economy collapsed and international trade halted as other countries isolated themselves. Before the American government started to censor worldwide news, the latest reports revealed that outbreaks with similar symptoms occurred across Europe. On day seven of the Dollar Flu, power and water shut down in major cities while stores were pillaged by starving people that were restless. That was around the time that the military and authorities started to lose control and chaos ensured. In Los Angeles and Detroit, the local gangs started their vicious conquest of their neighborhoods before fighting each other. In other places, militia groups formed to restore order and push their own agenda against the innocent.

The American government had lost control of their citizens and land. The final straw that broke the camel's back was the Fall of Washington DC to both communists and nationalists militia groups. Before the President was forced to leave the White House, he enacted Directive 51. The Directive claimed that the power to execute procedures for continuity of the federal government in the event of a "catastrophic emergency." Shortly after it was enacted, a signal was sent out across the country that activated sleeper cells and agents. And within in hours of their awaking, the capital was burning and government officials were either evacuated or hunted down. The Division rose from the ashes and absorbed remaining authorities in the country.
