So... Just started season two, and I'm a bit worried that the show will turn TOO much into what destroyed the storyline of Static Shock. I love the character of Connie, but if she becomes a fighter, and begins fighting with Steven... To me it sort of detracts and interferes with the pure story.

The same thing happened to Static Shock, once his stupid friend made himself a suit and started fighting alongside Static, it really ruined the show.

So, no spoilers...but...TELL ME THIS DOESN"T HAPPEN
>>
>>77836945
Pure story? What are you even talking about? Connie has been in the show since the beginning. It's not like she was just tacked on.

More importantly, fighting isn't even the major part of the show.
>>
>>77836945
are you a retard? she literally exists just to be the other half of stevonnie
>>
>>77836945
>So, no spoilers...but...TELL ME THIS DOESN"T HAPPEN
There's only really been one episode since then where Connie has more than a minute of screen time.
>>
It's probably going to happen in some capacity, but there are two important things to consider.

First, the show barely has any fight scenes, so it's not like she'll become a constant presence on all their adventures. This just gives her an excuse to be there for the big climax of S2.

Second, a Stevonnie fusion battle scene using the sword and shield simultaneously will be the coolest shit.
>>
>>77837036
yea the other half that's moral support, or but her jumping into battle with Steven just seems like a cheap way to add action and "danger"

>>77837024
And what are you talking about, Static Shock's friend was there from the beginning as well, but then suddenly in season 3 or so, he invents super powers and begins fighting, even though he's a complete nerd. Made no sense and killed the story.

I love connie's book wormish, smart, and support character...she just can't become a battle hardened vet to leap into danger
>>
>>77836945
You're kidding, right? Steven has NEVER been a capable warrior. Not that Static was much of one either, but he got by.
Gear was kind of annoyingly introduced, but he got better. It's just the show got worse

Her transformation has already begun. She will become his sword. Any type of relationship they could've had was an illusion.

It's capeshit. It's not supposed to make sense.

And I doubt Connie would ever be put into a situation more dangerous than what Steven is put in. The gems only allow Steven to be involved in actual fights when they are around to save him if he is in any real trouble.

Also Steven can always heal her.
>>
>>77837273
But that's just it...I don't want the show to turn INTO capeshit

(even though I take offense to this term...I'm a big Marvel/DC "Capeshit" fan)

>>77837100
Connie now has Rose's sword. Steven has her shield. I don't think she'll be in a lot of eps but they are starting to showcase their teamwork and if the show continues into Steven's teenage year you can bet she's gonna be fighting more often.
>>
>>77836945
>>77837100
How is this even remotely the same as Static Shock? The Static writers pulled Richie getting superpowers out of their ass. Connie receiving sword training, like everything else on the show, was planned and aims to further develop her character and role in the story.
>>
>>77837379
Like I said, they put Steven into combat situations with no experience. At least they are training Connie first.

>>
>>77837424

I kinda want the sword to go back to Steven. Not that I don't think Connie should have, but it'd be nice if Pearl gave Connie one of her swords as symbolic of her stepping out of "muh Rose" and becoming a stronger mentor in her own right.
>>
>>77836945
I'm not a fan of it either. I would like it better, if she was the anchor Steven has to his human side apart from his dad.
When she should start doing gem stuff she would lose that purpose.
Also i can't see how she would ever gain the skill of thousand year old warriors with superstrenth.
>>
>>77838924
That would be nice. But Steven gave Connie her sword and that kinda symbolizes that they are equals to each other now. What I'm getting from the writers is that they don't want Connie to be the Pearl to Steven's Rose. They want them to work together as partners and individuals.
>>
This kinda snuck up on me too.

Bright side is, they'd probably only go into battle together as Stevonnie. I wouldn't worry too much about Connie/Steven tagteam duo crap... I hope not, at least.

Connie a big shit. Steven is an A-rank character while Connie is below Lars, Sadie, and Ronaldo.

Dawg you can't just be comparing Steven Universe with Static Shock. Connie's role in the show has been a gradual and subtle change, because the SU writers can handle subtlety.

Static Shock was not a subtle show. Dad-racism, gun ethics, that was good writing, but not subtle. Subtlety is what makes SU.
>>
>>77836945
It hasn't happened yet, at least.

Honestly, I'm more surprised you complaint wasn't about muh fusion, since that seems to be the go-to complaint of Season 2.
>>
>>77838924
Rose's sword - or fusing with Steven - is the only thing she's got going for her in a real fight, though. It's clearly magical and shit. She's a kid and she doesn't have super strength or gem magic, someone like Jasper would turn her into a fine pink mist.
>>
>>77836945
The pure story is about Steven's life and relationships. Connie is an important relationship. There's no detraction here.
>>
>>77843048
She totally kicked ass in Nightmare Hospital though. Obviously thy're building towards them fusing for battle, but they made an awesome team against the fusion creatures.
>>
>>77843048
Rose's sword looks pretty heavy man and in the opening she carries it with one hand. Pearl must make her do weights.
>>
>>77843068
Yeah, but they weren't that big a threat. If she's going to fight Homeworld Gems or the equivalent she needs an edge. It might be giving her one already, we don't know how tough the gem monsters would be to cut with a regular blade.
>>
>>77836945
Fighting isn't the top priority for SU, so the most we might get from warrior Connie is being a part of some great final battle which will happen offscreen for the most part and will be resolved by Steven defeating Yellow Diamond with the power of friendship or something. Don't worry, anon.

>Static Shock
Why would you think that anyone would care about your Awful WBKids Show?
>>
>>77844842
They won't. Stevonnie will just use her dick.
>>
If you ask me, Static Shock was killed by the status quo. Sure his friend gets Gear and that was kind of silly/unnecessary, but other than that it's the same three recurring villains, the same corporate shadow governments. The same "will his family find out he's Static or won't they" over and over and over.

Freaks of the week are great for world building and exploring the dynamics of the characters you created, but a series cannot live on bread alone.

If anything Steven Universe has been going the exact opposite and making the show increasingly sequentially-driven. And it's definitely possible to go too far in this direction: arcs are great, but after a point it becomes like a Soap Opera and it becomes more about the comings and goings of popular characters than it does about the world.
>>
>>77844993
Didn't SS eventually get absorbed into the DCAU and suddenly you had Green Lantern and Batman coming to North Dakota?

And that all just sweeps under the rug that earlier reference to DC just being comics in the SS universe originally.
>>
>>77845079
Yeah, Static makes some nice appearances in the DCAU at large. And the DCAU make some... rather bizarre uninspired appearances in Static Shock. It really makes you contemplate what could have been. Static's a great character, but the show is kind of lame.

The real problem is that focusing heavily on a continuous narrative doesn't please network execs who want something that can be run in random order. If they had a release schedule like a Netflix show where it gets released in blocks it would be fantastic, but as it stands the shift to a more narrative driven focus is causing a decline in reruns and making some folks complain about the slow pace of the story while others complain that episodes now need to be viewed in a stricter order and are less self contained. If you can separate the real world constrictions from the content the story is fantastic, but some folks just aren't capable of that.

The only reason you value religious sequentiality is because you're a weeb who was raised on shonen anime and yet somehow didn't look close enough to realize that that was their fatal flaw. If you have a concise and predetermined story like Over the Garden Wall it's fine but when you have more time to work with then you have to divide your work into individual stories or at least attempt an epic. SU is neither (although I certainly wouldn't call SU completely sequential, even now).

Stories have beginnings and ends. If you like impromptu rambling then I'm sure your granpa has some stories to tell.

But he didn't have full control over his powers. I'd say Connie going through weeks or months of training before tagging along on a relatively easy mission is at very least comparable to letting Steven tag along before he had gone through any training and had only demonstrated his powers once or twice.

Connie looks good with a sword. She's agile and technical, a natural fencer. Steven's a shield n' heal kinda guy. They make a good team. Stevonnie will become a force to be reckoned with as they each hone their abilities. They might even be able to take on a crystal gem within a season or two at this rate.

Connie shows up about as often as she always does. She's not stealing the spotlight or anything and is no more important now than she used to be really but she DOES learn to fight and she is shown fighting.

My only worry is that this is taking the story in an extremely obvious direction of big bad defeated by Stevonnie, and we're all just waiting for it to happen.

Outside of the fact that it downplays Steven's individual importance, it's mostly just the obviousness of it that's dull to me.

It really wasn't that obvious, you just heard the theory so much that you took it for granted as a given.

You could know that Garnet was still a fusion and not know how that story was going to go down though. Like I didn't think she was going to fight Jasper 1 on 2 in the end there and I definitely didn't see Jasper herself trying to fuse coming.

Garnet being a fusion was at least a little well hidden though. Everyone and their mom knows Stevonnie fighting is going to be the big card and they keep flashing it to us. They recently reminded us of her in an episode right after showing Connie learning sword fighting, made a big deal out of them fighting together, and the moment they shoehorn Connie into whatever big event is coming up, we all know she was dragged along for that reason and that reason alone.
>>
>>77850361
They already shoehorned her in Ocean Gem and she didn't add anything to the team apart from not making Steven ride Lion alone.
>>
>>77850361
>Like I didn't think she was going to fight Jasper 1 on 2 in the end there
But you're 100% sure Stevonnie is going to fight one single "big bad" even though that concept isn't totally consistent with the ideas behind the overall story?

Maybe you should wait until the last season actually comes before you complain about its direction.

SU is lucky. Now that mods ar on the same page we get to have specific discussion threads and most of the shitposters are kept off board. Having a general is not a good thing. Even threads like this, which are kept alive by shitposters for trolling purposes, are still more substantive than any general because you can find honest opinions and discussion.

All I'm saying is when that either mid season finale or finale of this season comes and Coonie happens to be dragged along, I called it. The crystal gems will be taken out of the fight for one reason or another, and it'll be up to Stevonnie to save the day with some crazy sword and shield skills.

I was hoping Steven would take up Rose's sword as a way of symbolically inheriting her legacy, but nah. Gotta keep every male on the show a completely pussy.

Everyone called it, that's not the point I was making.

>>
>>77850968

What an idiot. In case all the symbolism wasn't overt enough for you, her shield is her true weapon and what Steven inherited. Her sword is merely an object taken up for war, in all other ways Steven is following in her footsteps.
>>
>>77851085
No, Rose was a competent military commander. Her sword was a tool of war, and the fact that Steven, a complete and utter naive child, would have to accept that burden was what I was looking forward to. The plot has shown his loss of innocence and I wanted to further see him grow.

I also wanted a male character in the show that could actually kick ass. So far every dude has been completely ineffectual in a fight.
>>
>>77851050
That's not all that vague a claim. If Stevonnie's first attempt gets like slapped by Yellow Diamond and broken up instantly, I will have been taken off guard. It would be neat to show something they never practiced failing as a good idea but poor time. As it's playing out though, the next big fight will be decided by Stevonnie and that's just a meh way to settle it.
>>
>>77850968
I share the desire for him to pick up the sword too, but he's far from a pussy; he killed a holo-pearl on advanced mode with a broom and deflected a ship-based energy cannon with his shield. Connie wouldn't have survived Pearl's test if Steven weren't there, probably not even those cluster mutants if he wasn't keeping her flank.
>>
>>77851166
>That's not all that vague a claim.
Yeah it is dude sorry. "Connie will be there and they'll fight someone as Stevonnie without other people" is reeeeeally fucking vague.
>>
How would that even work though. Assuming YD is the big bad, she's in space. And it's not like Connie can go out there with steven fused.
>>
>>77851143
>loss of innocence
He's not as naive as he used to be but he's still an innocent person.
>I wanted a male character in the show that could kick ass
go watch G.I. Joe if you care about representation so much
>>
>>77851189
He doesn't really "fight" though. I get that's the point and that he protects, but I dunno, I guess I always assumed he'd mature and have to accept the burden he carries. Usually he "helps" via his various powers, rather than actually roughing somebody up.

And he's the only one who could do it, seeing as he's the only male Gem. I guess maybe Lion counts, whatever the fuck he is.

>>77851275
Way to not answer any of my questions, dingus. Yes he's still innocent, but there just so happens to be an intergalactic war brewing. A war his mother was a key part in.

As for representation, fuck yourself. I don't like taking the "THINK OF THE CHILDREEEEN" approach but don't you think little boys would enjoy seeing a capable male figure? It used to be Greg's role but he's limited to tech support.
>>
>>77851217
I don't know the conflict of which it will be yet, but I know it's resolution. That's enough to damage the hype for me, especially when there's going to be an extremely obvious tell at the beginning of the episode for when it's all going down.

The show is setting up Steven to confront his mother's military past and ultimately make a different choice than she did when he encounters the homeworld; his humanity gives him a greater level of compassion and understanding for others that was foreign to gems at the time of the war. If he took her sword, that would mean throwing away his humanity as well as his innocence.
>>
>>77851486
this
>>
>>77851486
Humanity and compassion are all well and good but you need to be able to protect things. I get that's what the shield represents but a shield can't make problems go away. Sometimes you've gotta fight for things you want to protect.

That's the lesson Steven needs to take away from the other gems. That fighting and protecting aren't mutually exclusive.
>>
>>77851474

Yes! Yes, it does. Quite literally so, in fact.
>>
>>77851356
True. The series is not over, though, so we might still get to see Steven beat someone's ass if pushed far enough.
>>77851374
I didn't say he was a badass, just that he's more capable than he's given credit for and we've only seen what could be the tip of an iceberg of power.
>>
>>77851600
>That's the lesson Steven needs to take away from the other gems. That fighting and protecting aren't mutually exclusive.

Pretty sure he already knows that. He's fought to protect earth.
>>
>>77851600
I think the point is more that Gems, once they step outside the ordered system they are made to fit within, invariably begin to favor the absence of that system.

That's why Rose was so dangerous, and why Steven is so dangerous -not due to any combat ability or a shield or a sword, but because both of them were able to so easily sway Gems to their cause.

Look what Steven has done, just by being compassionate. He befriended Lapis, he tamed corrupt beasts, he's won over Peridot with kindness.

He is the antithesis to everything Homeworld is, and to a lesser extent even the Crystal Gems themselves. They are all violent, often cruel, and seem to reject understanding as a basis. Steven is an endless wellspring of sincerity and compassion.

The lesson is not that he needs to fight to protect, but that fighting is not always taking up arms. And Steven... he's going to be the one teaching that lesson.
>>

>>77850186
Who cares about Steven's individual importance? He's not the focus.
>>
>>77851820
This is what I liked so much about season 3 of Avatar, there wasn't supposed to be an easy answer. Aang had to agonize and debate himself over whether he'd have to kill Ozai, and even though that got resolved via a deus ex machina I'd like a similar struggle to happen here. Where Steven has to confront that compassion and kindness sometimes isn't enough and that he has to fight. It's a very adult thing to do and I think it'd cap off his growth from the naive fun loving innocent to someone who acknowledges his responsibilities.

>>77851836
But that isn't always enough. Look at Jasper.
>>
>>77851820

>>
>>77852157
The thing is with Jasper is that he seems to understand that you do have to fight some things. Some people are unable to be simply reasoned with. He didn't do the fighting himself but he made no attempts to convert Jasper.

Now if Jasper doesn't die and remains stuck on earth, I want to see Steven's reaction to her. Steven is actually afraid of her but in all honesty, we know nothing about who she is as a person and Steven never really questioned it like he instantly did for Peridot.
>>
>>77852163
Except that Mihawk was delusional and had no idea what he's talking about.
>>
>>77852157
Korra was better than Avatar though. Unlike Aang, Korra had to make some actual hard choices.
>>
>>77852310

>hard choices

The fuck she did. Every choice she was given was incredibly simple and she still managed to botch it every time. It only seemed like some kind of difficult decision because she cried until someone else came and fixed that shit for her.
>>
>>77852410
At least she wasn't a complete pussy like Aang.
>>
>>77852429

No, she was an incompetent, immature blowhard that always acted without thinking. That's arguably far worse that being a pussy.
>>
>>77852491
Still better than freezing yourself for a thousand years.
>>
>>77852491
Worse because most of Korra's story was about her whinging about how she keeps failing even though she was the Avatar, or worse because that acting without thinking usually took things from bad to worse?
>>
>>77852310
And those "hard choices" got the previous thousands of years of avatar experience obliterated and permanently opened a hole to the spirit world, allowing things like Koh through to terrorize people.

Aang, a peaceful air nomad, had to debate whether he would have to KILL someone for the greater good. It was the focus of the second half of season 3 and it was a huge part of his character development.

The biggest problem with the show now was the pandering to the Peridot fans. It's pretty revolting.
>>
>>77854970
I wonder if this is because Steven isn't able to properly use his gem as an energy source like the others. It clearly supplements him, what with the super-strength and the like, but he still has to rely on eating, breathing, and sleeping primarily, which isn't enough to keep drawing on for the shield.

Since those are pretty limited resources, what if fighting as Stevonnie had a time limit before defusing, since she'd be using gem abilities, to balance out being powerful/skilled fighter? This would leave both of them tapped and unable to fight making the fusion high-risk.

Could Steven learn to rely solely on his gem? Would it gradually happen naturally? If he went without food he could unlock it? If he fused with another gem could he pick it up from them?
>>

Guys, guys
I'm sure we all can agree that the Peridot pandering is something we should blame Zuke for.
She's the one ruining a character with good potential, yeah I said RUINING, because making her "tsundere nyan tinydot" is being a hack, which is actually something Lauren is know for
>>
What even is Peridot's plan once she's helped the Crystal Gems stop the Cluster? Go back to Homeworld and tell Yellow Diamond she aided traitors in order to save her own skin? Peridot did not think this all the way through. I want to see the episode where it finally sinks in and she mindfucks herself.
>>
>>77856758

Peridot was a shallow character before Zuke gave her some actual personality.
>>
>>77856758
If you guys are this asspained about not having a MUH SERUZ antagonist, i'm sure there will be a gem in the future to satisfy you. Plus there's still jasper before she inevitably gets redeemed.

>>77856756
I've sufficiently often found people who aren't stupid on this board. It requires a certain amount of patience, I'll admit, but I frequently argue about the specifics of a "sequence of creative works" with those who are capable of distingushing fiction from reality.

The show is made like a year before airdate

Peridot was introduced like a year ago, pandering would have required some very reactive episode creation

One new storyboarder is not in charge of a character's entire personality/everything they do, that's not how writing works

Greg's not perfect, but that's kind of the point. He loves his son and seems to dislike the fact that the gems try to keep him from being a dad to him. Not like Pearl is any better at raising Steven, seeing as she treats him like a shrine to Rose.

Amethyst never participated in the war. She was born later.

So no, they have no reason to see her as an enemy. They don't like the Kindergarten itself- because it was destroying the Earth- but that's not Amethyst's fault.

Dude, are you me?
Though I still haven't quitted. I completely skipped Sworn to the Sword because I just knew what the plot was and how they keep shoehorning Connie in everything is fucking frustrating.
I feel you, even if you're shitposting

It's not a meme to hate a genuinely bad character.

Most people I see just hate him because he is a bad father or he is fat loser. I hate him because he is a boring character that sucks all of the life out of every scene he is in.

The only people who like Greg are people who didn't have fathers in their lives because they get a sick dad-boner over all the cliche "warm moments" that are super cringe-worthy.

Connie dies in the most unceremonious possible way ever i.e. Run over by car, fell down the stairs and broke her neck. Now Peridot has replaced Connie for Stevens affections.

The only thing Greg ever did wrong was let his kid be taken away from him by a bunch of mentally unstable alien war criminals.

>>77859799
Better. After Connie dies, Steven swears off women and dates Peedee.
