We... are the Crystal Gems!
We always save the day!
And if you think we can't,
We'll always find a way!
It's just so darn catchy!
As for fanart, I loved this interpretation of an older steven and connie.
But yeah, shell necklaces are stupid. I'm pretty sure the artist was going for a Brother Iz vibe though.
Eh, that facet of fandom will always exist. Last I heard they were all about calling themselves "gemtlemen". No thank you. However I don't see anything anything wrong with gemsonas, I really like the idea of people playing with a fantasy setting like that ,within reason. It's like fakemon, or people making themselves Hogwarts students.
I really hope Sugar doesn't flanderize the gems, pearl is especially sensitive to this, as her anxiety can be easy exploited for jokes/plot points.
Akira motorcycle opening. Evangelion setup. Macross Itano circus battle. Utena walks up the stairs. End up in Laputa castle. Kenshiro punches a tank to death. Kill 'em all Tomino. The End.
The Spirit Morph saga is definitely His Dark Materials. Dropping a reference like that in a show this good fired some neurons that haven't fired in a while - a shocking number of fictional tropes I enjoy are things I first encountered in those books that are also in Steven. Coming-of-age stories, intelligent animal companions, a "life essence" that is separate from the physical body...
Steven has Estelle, though.
Really enjoyed the new episode. Given how Tumblr-y the show is, I'm not surprised they did a "get over the friend zone" episode. Also not surprised they handled it really, really well. They clearly expressed their point while also not making Jamie into a total douchenozzle, which I think will help the message get across to people who do believe in standard "nice guy wants girl and so he deserves/gets her" narratives. Jamie is still a nice, likeable guy, and not even that much of a Nice Guy (TM), yet the writers were still able to show that it's okay for Garnet not to return his feelings just because he's nice and thinks he loves her. Also that Jamie can still move on with his life after being let down.
