Blue Moon (The Immortals, 2) by Alyson Noel


Avenge Pink Diamond and preserve her legacy forever.
Make Steven suffer a punishment worse than he thinks (formerly).
Find out the truth behind Pink Diamond's murder (currently).

Blue Diamond is one of the main antagonists of the Cartoon Network series Steven Universe , along with Yellow Diamond and (supposedly) White Diamond . She is one of the Gem Matriarchs on Gem Homeworld  and a member of the Great Diamond Authority ruling over Homeworld. Blue Diamond was apparently responsible for overseeing an attempted colonization of Earth, and later, the attempts to quell the rebellion of the Crystal Gems.

This shows that Blue Diamond may be as merciful, forgiving, and sympathetic as her gems claim – at the very least, she certainly has a greater respect for due process and an interest in the truth.

Like all her subjects, Blue Diamond has the standard abilities of a Gem, those including: Enhanced condition, the ability to not age, and, potentially, shapeshifting and fusion. However, she has a greater amount of power within due to her status as a Diamond and member of the Great Diamond Authority.

Blue Diamond is one of the members of the Great Diamond Authority alongside Yellow Diamond , Pink Diamond and, presumably, White Diamond (possibly sisters). As the matriarchs of Gem Homeworld, she was in charge of colonizing planets for Gem colonizations and expansion.

In " Back to the Moon ", Blue Diamond's mural is once again seen on the moon base when the Crystal Gems and the Ruby Squad went to visit the place.

   The painter's motive in using this figure might be explained by desire to symbolize the untarnished thought and feeling of early Taoism—something near akin to that passionate love of Nature instinctive in the Chinese mind. Perhaps he seeks thus to convey a hint of the emotion that inspires his brush; yet maybe he is conscious of no loftier purpose than to complete the scheme of composition. Whatever the reason, the frequent presence p. 774 of this figure in landscape as an integral part of the picture is a characteristic and significant feature of a form of art adjudged the highest achievement of the national genius.

   The names of The Eight Immortals, according to the generally accepted version, are as follows: Chung-li Ch‘üan, Ho Hsien-ku, Chang Kuo, Lü Tung-pin, Han Hsiang Tzŭ, Ts‘ao Kuo-chiu, Li T‘ieh-kuai, and Lan Ts‘ai-ho. It should be mentioned, however, that one or two in the list are occasionally replaced by other hsien .

   This hsien is generally bearded and corpulent, and is often shown half-naked. Artists do not as a rule attempt to reproduce all the curious physical features attributed to him in the following biography. He is to be recognized by his distinctive emblem, a fan, which may be one made of feathers, as in the accompanying woodcut, or one roughly quadrangular with rounded corners and concave edges, made from the leaf of the fan-palm. The latter type of fan is often combined with a fly-whisk fixed to its distal end. Occasionally he appears with a two-edged sword, the pao pei of his pupil Lü Tung-pin (see p. 789 ).

   Chung-li Ch‘üan was a native of Yen T‘ai. In later life he assumed the name ( ming ) of Chüeh. He p. 777 was also known by the style ( tzŭ ) of The Taoist Hermit, and by the pseudonyms ( hao ) The Philosopher Wang-yang and The Master Yün-fang.

   His father was one of the small princelings of the second rank, and he ruled his fief from the town of Yün-chung. 1

   The birth of this sage was accompanied with strange phenomena in the shape of rays of light, scores of feet in length, whereat all those in attendance were much amazed.

" The Bone Thief is an imaginative adventure chock full of surprises, featuring an engaging hero who is anything but ordinary. Great fun!"
   — J.A. White of the The Thickety series

C ompared to other more ordinary towns, Quiver Hollows is a very strange, very curious place. It is also home to longtime friends Grimsly, Ollie, Ming, and Penelope. In a town where everyone is spectacularly abnormal, Grimsly feels bad about being terribly, unforgivably normal, as the town's pet funeral director. So when a series of strange and disturbing mundane occurrences begins plaguing Quiver Hollows, well, Grimsly fears his growing celebrity just might be to blame since everyone knows that the things you focus on the most have an uncanny way of shaping your world.

"Like a good celebrity, Unrivaled is mysterious and compelling
and so gorgeous you won't be able to look away."
   — Cecily von Ziegesar, author of the Gossip Girl series

L ayla Harrison, Aster Amirpour, and Tommy Phillips always dreamed of the ultimate celebrity lifestyle. But Layla, Aster, and Tommy never imagined it would come with a cost—the involvement in the disappearance of Madison Brooks; a story that’s blinded the world like a starlet dazzled by paparazzi flashbulbs...
