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
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.
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.
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"
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
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.
>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.
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.
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.
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.
It kind of does happen but like >>77837024 said the fighting is not that important especially with these two. Plus I think warrior/action couples tend to share the spotlight better then Bros/Bffs.
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.
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.
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.
>Disgusting conniefags who want her in the show even more.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Connie get her fencing skills to quick. It was just one episode of training and now she killing gem abominations without any problems.
>To me it sort of detracts and interferes with the pure story.
Not all the episodes that have nothing to do with the main plot whatsoever, no, it's Connie that detracts from the story.
You sound stupid and you should feel stupid.
>These threads are just an excuse to start a "discussion" that'll slip into a coma enticing amount of shitposting
I'm just wondering when they'll do a scene with Stevonnie wielding Rose's Sword and Shield.
Why would you think that anyone would care about your Awful WBKids Show?
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.
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.
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.
>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.
And that is why SU will forever be shit.
I guess here is a good place to ask. Does anyone have the image of Amethyst cat eating spaghetti? I think she's being fed by Garnet. I need it for a reaction image. Here's another favorite image of mine in payment.
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.
At least you put a little effort in, but you make it clear you just dislike the show for reasons of personal taste rather than objective flaws. Don't bother trying to sound smart if you can't even put together some concrete points.
I hope she turns into a talking sword steven relies on for advice and she can swing herself around. People will want to fuck it , she will literally become his sword, it will be hilarious.
They should just get rid of Connie and replace her with Peridot.
It hasn't actually fully happened yet, but it is bound to, but it's gradual and it doesn't ruin her character.
I mean, it doesn't ruin it in the sense that those who hate her still hater her and those who like her still like her.
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.
What I'm really trying to say is that the Crystal Gems are horribly irresponsible.
You should be far more concerned with the increasing focus on progressive themes. Sword fighting Steveonnie was obvious to anyone with a brain as soon as they revealed Steven could fuse with Connie.
>with the increasing focus on progressive themes.
Having progressive theme has never been an issue. The issue is when it serves to cover a lack of actual good story telling.
Have we really reached the point where /co/ get triggered when a show dare to imply "please be nice with everyone, m'kay?"
Not him, but I'm a big fan of the show and have been keeping up with it since the beginning. Action sequences have taken a nosedive since the finale of Season 1 and they've moved their focus on feelings and crying with nothing to break it up.
Please kill Connie off and let the age of Stevidot begin
Also the show doesn't showcase Garnet's booty enough
They poofed Peridot and ever since then there was like, that time in the Kindergarten when they got attacked by stupid looking gem mutants and that sequence lasted 20 seconds atleast. All the last 5 episodes have been about is Peridot triggering each of the Crystal Gems with her homeworld intolerance.
The sequence where Robots actually fought lasting for two minutes and the entire episode was about Pearl trying to prove herself as more than a servant
i aint no slave massaand the part with the drill lasted for 30 seconds at the most, the entire episode being about Amethyst being triggered because Peridot was real and told her that she was defective, made even worse by the fact that she was laughing along with Peridot as she shit on everyone else. The show is really getting bad.
>peri broadcasts from "abandoned crystal system colony"
yeah it didn't bother me.
what i really meant was i haven't seriously disliked anything that has happened so far. doesn't mean i can't imagine how the show could be better, but it's not my show so whatever. how could you be seriously offended by it anyway?
I love Steven but him fighting has never been something I really cared about. I like seeing how he befriends and protects everybody
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.
work for Turner Broadcasting in Atlanta and make it my duty to be as nosy as possible during lunch and water cooler breaks. Sometimes I take a stroll into departments that aren't mine and make friends.Word on the street is that you'll have your gay rocks back a week or two after the new year.
If you're legit, thanks for the info, but it's still a long-ass wait.
I just really want Steven to not just have Connie as fusion partner in battles. I want to see him fuse with the other Gems for combat situations too. I've nothing against Connie, I just really want to see Steven's other fusions.
I want Connie to not be in the show.
>Word on the street is that you'll have your gay rocks back a week or two after the new year.
This isn't news or exciting. Everyone basically expected this anyway. A real story would be a surprise December Steven Bomb.
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.
Steven fusing with the Gems doesn't have to be sexual or romantic, it can be completely platonic. And the Gems did already try to fuse with him at the beginning of Alone Together, so the Gems likely doesn't have a problem over fusing with him.
I think we're more likely to see a Steven/Pearl fusion first, considering we've already seen Rose and Pearl fusing.
>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.
I don't see how that's a worry.
If anything that sounds pretty hype.
Fusion is based on all relationships...it just so happens the two groups of gems we meet have sexual overtones with theirs.
I can wait for a couple of normal minded gems to call them out on that shit and fuse like legit friends.
Outside of the fact that it downplays Steven's individual importance, it's mostly just the obviousness of it that's dull to me. Like there's knowing a little bit of a story like the fact that homeworld gems would arrive on earth soon, but this is being told how it ends, and everything before that point now is just waiting for it to happen.
It really wasn't that obvious, you just heard the theory so much that you took it for granted as a given.
Like knowing Garnet is a fusion. Yet for all the people who figured it out, Jailbreak was still amazing. You're caught up in concepts when in reality you have no idea how that concept will be executed.
she is the most annoying mary sue ever and just a self insert for the tumblr viewer
>shes an incredibly smart weaboo poc that is a bookworm but also strong and fearless at the same time
>the mc is fucking useless until she consoles him to unlock his hidden powers
she makes korra look like citizen kane
if anyone thinks this good writing go kill yourself
Well too fucking bad for you then, nobody's going nowhere without the power of love, bitches.
>the mc is fucking useless until she consoles him to unlock his hidden powers
I'm sure glad you're here to complain about things that don't happen.
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
2in 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.
>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.
They had an excuse there because when they were making that episode, it was uncertain whether it was going to be the LAST episode. They were actually willing to end the show with the introduction of Lapis. Can you imagine.
>a 24/7 general on the /trash/ board
This will never not be funny. Going to a board literally called trash filled with furry and pony porn just to discuss lesbian rock aliens.
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.
>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.
Everyone called it, that's not the point I was making.
You can know the concept but not the execution. You're just listing off really vague events but you don't REALLY know what's going to happen and how it's going to happen. Stop setting yourself up for disappointment and learn how to enjoy a ride, god damn.
the show is just that good, i guess
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.
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.
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.
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.
>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
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.
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.
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.
Does this look Ike the face of mercy, bitch nigga?
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.
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.
True. The series is not over, though, so we might still get to see Steven beat someone's ass if pushed far enough.
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.
>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.
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.
Go play in traffic, Damien, grownups are talking.
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.
But that isn't always enough. Look at Jasper.
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.
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.
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?
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.
>Fighting isn't even a major part of the show.
I sure hope that changes. You know, considering their is an alien race of evil gems hellbent on destroying them.
But nah, feelings are important too.
Crickey! My thread is still alive?? I never had a thread last this long....let a lone a Steven Uni thread... This made my night.... anyway I'll be plowing into Season 2 tonight over dinner... I still am not a fan of Connie going the way of the warrior, BUT I do see some of your guys points.
Honestly I think Steven is a pretty nice kid but god damn will it hurt once his innocent is shatter that being nice won't fix a deadly situation
>Steven tries being nice
>His kindness backfires
do you have a single fact to back that up
I am getting mixed signals here.
Do you guys want Steven to be tooedgyforme or just want him to have a wake up call
Is Pearl the squid ward of SU?
fuck you bitch ass faggot ass nigga ass punk ass biiiitch
>Not all the episodes that have nothing to do with the main plot whatsoever
Gosh dang you're a silly goose. When you bake a cake, do you forgo all the ingredients except the butter - since it's obviously the "main" part?
He couldn't summon his shield reliably for a while or work his healing spit but he was still super strong and a lot more durable than the average human we've known this shit since like episode one cmon man.
I don't know. Why don't you fuck off and stop shitposting faggot.
Steven can fully control his shield in a certain episode that escapes me but it was with chasing peridot. but the more he uses it the more tired he gets. After he used it 4 times he got really worn out

you do realize that Sworn To The Sword took place over at least a couple weeks, if not a couple months right?
and even Say Uncle is something that fits perfectly fine into continuity considering Uncle Grandpa is a interdimensional reality warper
I am, or at least enough that I've got no real complaints
well Peridot is the right size, and her fusing would be the perfect way to end her Redemption/Reconciliation arc
I like the way you think anon
the swolest bunch on Homeworld
>and even Say Uncle is something that fits perfectly fine into continuity considering Uncle Grandpa is a interdimensional reality warper
Sugar confirmed it's the only episode that's undoubtedly canon.
>custom made pearls
STOP THE PRESSES
SO THERE ARE FAT PEARLS
His innocence is already kind of gone. He had that whole deal where he was rejecting Connie eve cause he thought his life was too dangerous, he fully realized that the gems coddle him without meaning to, and he mentioned at least once that he was pretty sure they all blamed him on a certain level for Rose being gone. He's not naive just weirdly stoic for a little kid.
Those cost extra.
What is a little girl with a fairly strict diet?
Someone who gets off on watching someone fail miserably at those assigned tasks. You know, the kind of sadist who plays keep away with a diabetic's insalin.
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?
I don't think that's so insufferable. It was way worse when all the people were spewing conjecture, painting her as everything from badass warlord to a step or two away from the truth.
Whoops, I guess fictional cartoon shows have some kind of independent existence that we all should argue about the specifics of, rather than being a sequence of creative works produced by real people. My mistake. I was the dimwitted fantasist, not you, obviously; my mistake.
If you don't want to argue about the specifics of a "sequence of creative works", then why are you here? There's really nothing else to do on this board aside from that or talking about "Waifus."
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.
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.
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
ur getting angry about literally nothing you
>I think they're overdoing it a bit with the cutesy shit. Wouldn't hurt to tone that down
Have we been watching the same cartoon? There is no chill when it comes to cute shit with them.
You can't expect Steven's future wife to be useless in combat, can you
F/am, all this cute shit was planned before we even saw her. Not theyre fault it happens to be what fans like.
Dude what? Of course she was meant to be small, obviously. We all knew the day Warp Tour aired.
But making her "smoll dorito tinydot nyan tsundere lol" is fucking stupid and shouldn't be considered as character development
he's already a lot slimmer than he was at the start of the series, while he'll never be skinny(being the child of Rose Quartz and Greg Universe pretty much makes that impossible), he'll probably be much more healthy looking as he gets older and more and more involved in Gem business
If you want dark and edgy shit you're watching the wrong show. Go to /bojack/ or something
Everyone is apparently. Haven't you heard?
You're right, it's not.
Because sometimes... they make stuff for other women, and not for you :^)
it's not like the action sequences are particularly impressive. Weekly gem monsters are less prevalent now, but we'll probably get more action during the finale with the cluster and malachite(?)
Of course Steven's gonna deus ex machina at the end no matter what.
You'll be waiting forever then.
What strawman? There are half a dozen valid objections you could have had to that comment, and you pick one with no applicability whatsoever? I normally enjoy 4chan's troll/countertroll fencing but you've gotta put at least some effort in, give me a fucking reacharound at least.
/sug/ has spoken
Because when she was a teen she got heavily bullied because she was an obsessive IZ and EEnE fan that'd draw cheap porn for the dungs that also like those shit cartoons
So she'll try to instill the sense of freedom of expression she wishes she'd had at such age onto kids who don't understand jack shit.
Sadie's Song as the perfect example
I don't hate him because every "parental" figure so far has been shit. Except Rose and she's fucking dead.
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.
So I have a question guys...
If Amythest was no part of the Gems that came to Earth (she was grown on the Kindergarten), should Garnett and Pearl resent her and see her as one of the enemy? Has this been addressed?
>If Amythest was no part of the Gems that came to Earth (she was grown on the Kindergarten), should Garnett and Pearl resent her and see her as one of the enemy? Has this been addressed?
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.
Oh fuck yes! Another Dog copter cameo! ....He needs to appear atleast every 3 episodes....
> eight months of no Jasper
I want to see her wrecking more shit with Beast Cannon.
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.
