The dude's probably in his early twenties (judging by how Sadie said they got their job as a summer job but it became full time) so he moved out on his own away from his parents presumably.
I've seen some theories that he's adopted, though there's really not much evidence to it. Then again, there's really not a lot of evidence to most Steven Universe theories.
Also, pic for >>77929158
Who cares? He sucks. Probably his parents were thanking god for every second this shit was out of their house.
Saddie was a bitch for letting her mom and the gems worry about them though.
His dad is Mr Smiley - I think he got Lars his job at the Big Doughnut.
Maybe he even owns it, or has enough power over the place that his piece of shit son doesn't get fired for being the worst.
Smiley's only ever been seem in there when Lars wasn't there.
Also they have the same skin colour and Lars' hair is obviously black, bleached to orange (it was black in the pilot). I think it makes sense that his dad is known for being smiley, and Lars is a grumpy rebel.
But that's perfect for Lars. He's exactly the sort of faggot who would jump on the bandwagon of some long dead trend and think he's cool for it. Not to mention that this is what happened to real life faggot who did this to their ears — they are stuck with it forever.
Probably in another town/abandoned him for Mr. Smiley like >>77930027 (which btw is a pretty good theory)
Honestly I want hiatus to end so we can get The New Lars to air sooner and finally have more development for him, he's a dickwad but he reminds me a lot of myself at that age so I gotta see him pull through in some way.
plus he's cute
If they can develop Sadie with her loud cunt of a mother then we should at least sympathize with Lars in some way as well
They were also standing together in this scene, although everyone jumped to the conclusion that he was standing next to Sadie.
If they're stretched too far, I think you need your ear to be put back together surgically. But they do tighten up again up to a certain point, depending on each person's ear elasticity
>thread about Lars
this is actually worse than hiatus.
is it a coincidence that they both have a hair cut that was only cool for like a certain time ?
Hot new theory fresh off the presses:
>Gems can mate with humans
>Gems die from giving birth
>Gems can shapeshift
>Gems can change gender
>Lars has no apparent parents
>Rose shapeshifted into a man wanting to sexually experiment, fucked some human woman, and unknowingly conceived Lars
>Lars is Steven's half-brother
>Lars is half Gem, too
>No one knows he Rose is Lars' father
>Not the Crystal Gems
>Not Lars' mom
>Not even Rose when she was still alive
>In the season finale, when shit goes down, Steven is captured/defeated/exhausted/whatever
>Lars steps in with his spontaneously manifesting Gem powers and saves the day
Lars and Steven are 2 sides of the same coin. Lars is the exact opposite of Steven growing up in the same situation.
Lars is what happens when a kid can't understand being different and hates it rather than embrace it the way Steven has. He doesn't wanna grow up to be like his parent so he's a complete asshole, unlike Steven who proudly accepts being a half-human and following in his mom's footsteps.
He's incredibly self-conscious and cares too much about what others think of him, where as Steven loves everyone and himself enough to know he doesn't have to change anything.
Lars is also shown to have no respect or love for nature or people. Steven on the other hand loves nature and everyone.
>her master plan was for you to slowly feel bad for lars
So... His mom died? I'm pretty sure they would've mentioned that Smiley was his biological dad. I think his parents died and he lives at the house, alone. At least, that would make much more sense seeing as Dewy's son made a point right away to say the mayor was his dad.
That's my trigger word you little shit. Be considerate next time and spoiler that.
So, we know the Cool Kids are obviously analogous to the CGs and have for a while now. In Sadie's Song, we see Lars being more relaxed and hanging with the Cool Kids at the concert. he seems a lot more relaxed than when we first saw him trying to get 'in' with them. The very next episode, Peridot's redemption arc starts. So it's pretty safe to assume that Lars = Peridot, like how CKs = CGs.
Combining this with the Mr. Smiley is Lars' Dad theory (and possibly that they might reconnect in The New Lars, but that's stretching a bit), then who will Peridot 'reconnect' with in the future?
I dunno if he's meant to mirror Peridot.
Buck = Garnet (shades, lips, red clothes, stoic)
Jenny = Amy (lips, purple clothes, sassy)
Sour Cream = Pearl (pointy light hair, tall & skinny, blue & orange clothes)
Then I'd guess Lars is Steven if anything (curly hair, red shirt with yellow symbol, similar face shape, trying to to fit in with the main 3).
Where is my long lost duet partner?
This I assumed both Lars and Sadie are graduated from high school, since they are apparently the only people working at the big donut and they both open and close.
No way a high school student could work those hours year round.
>Also they have the same skin colour
Lars' skin is far lighter than Smiley's
That said I thought until the unspeakable episode that Smiley was Sadie's stepdad because he was standing next to her mom in the return.
>Steven and Lars could be called STARS but it will be called something else just to fuck with everyone's expectations
>Just as one of the gems or Connie calls it "Stars" their fused form jumps in with "Stevelar" or something
Don't even pretend they won't do that
You know, I just realized something. Steven didn't what school was, yet his dad raised him until he moved in with the Gems. Did his dad never put him in, or did the Gems tell him he didn't need to go?
guess she does fit pretty well, hopefully she gets redeemed
>Shoved into Jasper's bosom
>Breasts can't be soft and pliable like most boobs, then
My god, even her TITS are muscular!
A Nice Kid who dindu nuthin but ends up shot by the police anyway.
God damn, my amazonian women fetish has come out in full force today.
Anybody else hoping for Amy x Peri is going to be canon? It's basically an OTP right on next to Connie and Steven.
It would be interesting for Sadie to meet someone who is better to her than Lars.
Then he gets all pissed about it and finally realizes what an asshole he is.
Of course Sadie would take him back though. Cause she's a punching bag in training.
Then Steven says he has enough love to share between the both of them and the harem begins.
But seriously, I don't think Peridot would ever understand why she's mad. She would probably never understand the implication.
But Lars is always bored and Sadie is always desperate.
If that had happened, they wouldn't have made such a big deal about making out in the island.
Either way, Sadie is shit and any ship involving her is shit.
Have we still not heard anything official about when this hiatus will end? You'd think by now at least the crewniverse would have said something
You know those losers that even after they graduate keep on hanging out at the same old places and doing the same old thing like back when they were in highschool, they get a deadend job and just stay there forever? That's Lars. One day he's gonna be in his 30s, 40s, 50s, etc and still working retail at the big donut.
But for reals, think about what they have in common - they're both kinda weird outsiders, the difference being Ronaldo owns his weirdness, and Lars rejects it.
They formed the Explorers Club as kids, to look at mysteries. It'd be sweet to see them do something like that as adults.
Also they both reach out to people to make friends, but have different/complementary approaches - Ronaldo makes his clubs, his blog and documentary hoping to attract other people with his interests, while Lars tries to make himself fit into an existing clique.
Other than knowing from various sources that the show is returning in January, there hasn't been anything else this whole time. I know what you mean though, and I wish we would finally get some kind of info. about when (or at least what) the next episode or episodes will be.
How old was Steven when he went to live with the Gems? Not every place has something like kindergarten and he might not have been old enough for 1st grade, probably close but not quite.
>It seems like Lars was a Steven when he was a kid.
Based on what? The only flashback we see has him acting nothing like Steven and pretty much like a proto-version of his current self.
Lapis is such a loser she had to hold someone prisoner just to have company. Also she's ugly and her water stinks.
I overheard Lars talking about her, he said not even he would go that low.
>Them dating is toxic.
This. Lars just takes advantage of Sadie's affection, and Sadie's obsession with him causes her to do bad things. If they dated she'd probably sabotage any friendships he had to keep him to herself, while he'd just use it as an excuse for her to pay for everything he wants.
>Implying the crew knows anything about it or could say anything if they did
When, what order, how many hiatuses, etc. are all exclusively decided by CN, the production crews generally aren't even told when or if their shit is going to air, they're just paid to make it.
She's a shit!
Peridot MASTER RICE!
Ronaldo doesn't own his weirdness, he's got a fucking mental disease. It owns him. He's gotta be on the autistic scale from the obsessive antisocial behaviors he shows. He's like /x/ personified, paranoia and all.
I just find him disgusting in general. Like he represents a ton of negative traits and has no positive ones to help make up for it. He's fat, delusional, avoids/fears reality, and his family has to put up with it. He's a sad sack of a human being. At least his cringe inducing behavior makes for an entertaining cartoon character.
Him and Lars deserve each other. He'd probably be disgusted at the idea of gay shit, but since no one else would ever give him attention he'd be like one of those awkward loser guys who accepts blowjobs then never return the favor. There's some semi realistic gay fap fodder for you.
>He's fat, delusional, avoids/fears reality, and his family has to put up with it. He's a sad sack of a human being. At least his cringe inducing behavior makes for an entertaining cartoon character.
>Mfw that's me without the fat part
I just saw him as light skinned black, or biracial. There are some black redheads out there, like Redhead Kingpin.
>episode is about Sadie
>with mother issues
>Sadie is a retard the entire time, as is usual
>Sadie will be exactly the same in all future episodes
>absolutely nothing interesting happens
>Steven pretty much only existed for a gag that wasn't funny
I don't even see how anyone can think it isn't the worst episode. It is the only episode I can think of with no redeeming qualities. They really should just replace Sadie with Uncle Grandpa.
>Lars is the exact opposite of Steven growing up in the same situation.
This is like saying that someone growing up shorter than average grows up in the same situation as someone who is taller than average. Lars and Steven are both outliers, but the things that make Steven different are objectively more advantageous than the things that make Lars different.
>I just find him disgusting in general. Like he represents a ton of negative traits and has no positive ones to help make up for it. He's fat, delusional, avoids/fears reality, and his family has to put up with it. He's a sad sack of a human being.
I like how most normies' reaction to meeting someone like this is, "Ew you waste of space stop breathing," instead of, "Wow I wonder what fucked him up life must be pretty hard for him I'll be nice to him and maybe refer him to my shrink."
Lars = Peri
Onion = Steven
The show even spells it out with Onion and Steven.
Steven gives Onion Ranger guy because his Dad is away, and Onion gives Steven Explorer Gal because of Rose being gone. They mirror perfectly.
>He'd probably be disgusted at the idea of gay shit, but since no one else would ever give him attention he'd be like one of those awkward loser guys who accepts blowjobs then never return the favor.
I like RonLars but I feel like Ronaldo is pretty open with his sexuality due to all the stuff on the internet he's been exposed to.
I like the idea of Lars being the one to take advantage of Ronaldo. Ronaldo will usually give Lars a blowjob or handjob when he wants it, while Lars looks at straight porn on his phone or computer.
Also Ronaldo genuinely cares about his family and doesn't like offending people. He just acts without thinking a shitload. But he's not a bad person. He's worse than Lars though in my opinion.
Personally I think Historical friction is pretty underated, at least it gave us more insight on pearls character and produced those funny Jamie edits, and Jamie is certainly better than Sadie.
>worse than Sadie's Song
If you ignore all the good humor, fun character interactions and
DEEP LORE, then Historical Friction still comes out as far superior because it doesn't think that exploring awkward mother-daughter relationships to be an interesting plot for an episode. Sadie's Song is objectively the worst episode.
>Also Ronaldo genuinely cares about his family and doesn't like offending people.
We have seen very little suggesting the first and absolutely nothing suggesring the second.
Exactly. It was incredibly entertaining and people argue/bait about it to this day. All because of Sadie.
She may not be some kind of ideal person but she's an interesting character. Jamie's just... ugh
>It's a Jamie, Sadie, Ronaldo, and Lars are the only characters to appear besides Steven episode.
>wanting to get rid of the most humorous character in the show
Do you just want the show to be about angsty females crying about moms, lovers and friends? Lars has had two episodes, both of which were pretty great.
Jamie has only had two episodes, one of which was shit and one of which was above average. Sadie, on the other hand, is the only character that the show would benefit from removing. She has had three episodes, all of which have been absolute shit. Lars and Steven were the only redeeming qualities of two of these episodes.
GOD I FUCKING HATE PEARL AND LARS AND THE MAILMAN FAGGOT AND SADIE TOO THEY'RE ALL THE WORST CHARACTERS IN THE SHOWAND IT PHYSICALLY PAINS ME TO SEE HTEM ON TH ESCREEN FUCK THESE FAGGOTS I HOPE THEY DIE AT THE END OF THE SERIES FUCK I HATE THEM ALL SO MUCH
Steven's pretty cool though
They hate Lars because he reminds them of themselves.
Except Lars is QT.
>Lapis is the only gem who's bare foot
They did that shit on purpose did they?
i honestly dont see how anyone could truly not like her
Pearl has improved a lot after getting over the whole "I'm worthless" whiny phase she had.
Sadie is okay, but I can see why you wouldn't like her. She gets way too emotional almost any time an episode is about her.
I agree with lars and le mailman, though. Lars is just 100% unlikable and the fucking mailman tries way too hard to be funny and relevant.
is the guy who created this mega (https://mega.nz/#F!a9ojCZCT!SLfX7l7inSHdvd7hrf5LLA) in the thread?
I want to talk to him about the order of the shorts (along with the fact that there's now an english version of the lion short) but there's no way to contact him.
You're thinking of Balfur, the insane Gaelic warrior who accidentally became immortal during the Gem Wars when he got riddled with gem shards and dunked in Rose's fountain.
Have some lapidot, not made by me, obviously.
Thats the beauty of it. Since they've had next to no interaction with one another, shippers can just create whatever scenario they want because theres no established relationship.
Lapidot has no right to be as fucking cute as it is.
Too bad that shit will never happen.
When Lapis yanks free from Jasper, Peridot's facial expression becomes a scowl at the exact moment. Also when she mentions "Lazuli" her voice seems to change to a bitter tone. Peri doesn't like that water bitch.
It's not apparent, though. She seems entirely indifferent to Lapis.
In fact, I'm wondering if that sense of detachment from your fellow Gems is common in the culture of modern Homeworld. Perhaps that's what Steven was really made to do: spread love among Gemkind like a contagion.
Warriors picking flowers! Engineers and servants living together! Mass hysteria!
The antihumanism is strong. betcha lining up to see Avatar 2 and pretend to be Na'vi again.
Why? Because it's the way the artists drew it. THERE Is a sort of gems-living-on-earth-and-forgot-they-were-gems thing going on but it's not as romantic as humanized lapidot.
From mechandra. And also, I just like humanizations better, so obviously, being the dumper, there will be a lot of humanizations.
Nothing wrong with those, it's gems being actual literal humans that bug me. It's like those fanartists are saying they can't possibly relate to a bunch of polymorphic space rocks and their problems.
But...why hurt the little sea biscuit?
>Lars is trans
Haha, that's so fucking retarded. What kind mentally ill, feculence-dwelling man-ape would think that?
Everyone knows that Lars is TRAINS. He's multiple trains disguised as a human because the human world interests him and he'd like to get to know it better. The reason he seems like such a little shit is because of the language barrier. If he were talking to other trains he'd be perfectly polite, but it's different with humans so he keeps coming across as a dick. Also the lack of railroads makes him feel uncomfortable.
Jaspis I can see as being abusive. I think peridot literally cannot. And then there's always Peronnie.
And so do a lot of the smaller people in a relationship, and when they become abusive, they fail and are smacked down. I can't see Peridot being a master manipulator and abuser - she might try, but Lapis would smack her down. That's just me though. I know there's some art of Peridot abusing Lapis out there.
HOW DE DOODY MAN! Duh weave be red went ze mang be untwhit? Issat vikinigs?
>go in expecting some bible-thumping rant
>he actually makes a fairly cogent point about how the show isn't gay, rather the fanbase imposes gayness upon it
>ruins it in the last 30 seconds
Well okay, then.
>the hiatus is a coverup for heavily censoring episodes before they air to protect MUH CHILDRENZ
Garnet is the human equivalent of a /k/ fag walking around brandishing his guns. Peridot was right to ask her to defuse, and Garnet overreacted based on her idea of what fusion means that she fully knows only makes sense to herself and her teammates.Garnet fucked up.
This thread hasn't been deleted yet?
And only one post has been calling for mods to delete it?
I don't believe it, it's an early Christmas miracle!
I don't usually come to Steven Universe threads, but I have a question.
So I watched the Classroom Gems short about how gems are made, and I get that there's a machine that shoots junk into the ground and later a gem pops out. But I want to know: Where does the "junk" come from?
No it wasn't
Questions that brought up and remain unanswered by season 1
Corruption of gems into monsters
The gem culture motivation to expand at all
HOW THE FUCK ROSE MADE STEVEN
and thats just a short list
Well, in real life to grow more crystals you need seed crystal; finely-ground fragments of whatever type you're attempting to grow.
Then, you have Peridot talking about Gems being "harvested" in Catch and Release.
From this we can posit that new Gems are made by grinding up old Gems, mixing them into a nutrient-rich growth solution, and then injecting them into healthy living planets.
The guide book sort of explained it. She basically created a nearly perfect fascimile of the female reproductive system and human dna using whatever gems have to create their pseudo-biological bodies.
Gems are fucking holograms, they don't have a physical capability of "making it up" looking like one just doesn't work
How the hell does that explain why steven got her gem, and why would it kill her, to not give up her gem?
>post-finale anime highschool promos
The thing is clearly an AU, not some post finale thing.
I'm just waiting for them to give Hillary the chance to make an episode about the AU where Steven imagines what it'd be like to go to school but bases it all off of shit he's seen from things like Sailor Moon.
That is horrifying but I like the way it explains that gems have to die eventually for there to be new gems.
But would that mean there can only ever be X amount of gems in existence at any given time? What happens if a gem is lost to Homeworld somehow like all the gems on earth? Would that sort of thing just decrease their population?
>Gems are fucking holograms
There's your mistake anon. They're LIKE holograms, but they aren't just holograms.
They have bodily fluids and their physical form can take physical damage. They're as real and fleshy as a human, the point is that their bodies are formed from the reusable energy/magic that comes from their gems, so it ultimately doesn't matter.
They're basically just like the homunculi from FMA: Brotherhood.
They can eat, shit, sweat, and cry. They aren't just holograms if they can pull all that off, the crew are just terrible at using more accurate scientific terms to explain it.
Each mashed up gem can probably seed a few dozen new gems, so they can expand the population just not fast enough for a warfare-minded race.
You're always going to get more Gems out than you put in, so every Kindergarten is a net gain in terms of population.
Still, if true it puts a whole new light on the impact Earth had. The rebellion didn't just stop a generation of new Gems from being born, it basically spat in the face of every Gem that gave their life so that those new Gems could be born in the first place. Then, on top of that, there's all the lives of the Gems lost in fighting for the planet.
To Homeworld, Rose Quartz would have basically been the Gem version of Stalin or Hitler.
Well, judging by the episode titles, most likely next will be Barn Mates, and it'll cover Peridot gaining Garnet's trust like she has with Steven, Pearl and Amethyst in the last three episodes.
And after that, most likely it will be Gem Drill with them finally going after the cluster.
They've actually posted images on the crew's blog all the other times they went on hiatus saying when they'll be back.
One hiatus they even gave the wrong date. Said they'd be back one month, that month came, they put up another image saying "Our vacation's going a bit longer, see you next month instead"
This time though, complete silence.
Except the war was a cover up, Homeworld wanted all those gems shattered to feed the cluster project. Peridot said it was decided once they realized earth couldn't be colonized effectively. That could have been way before Rose decided to defend it.
>This time though, complete silence.
SU is being cancelled. The staff said those fake hotel reviews hurt the show's standing. If that's true then suicide girl would be the last straw. CN can't afford anymore terrible press assocation.
Rose Quartz was a powerful, high-ranking Gem, a product of a race scientifically advanced enough for intergalactic travel. She wouldn't have crafted some crude, human-esque uterus. Greg's sperm would have been cultivated and incubated in the most perfect possible environment, no eggs or umbilical cords or amniotic sacks. The fetal Steven would be fed not a mix of nutrients from Rose's body and diet, but pure energy straight from her gem. As he grew, his body steadily pushes forward inside Rose, his stomach drawing closer to the gem seated in her navel. When his body was strong enough to absorb it, Steven pushed himself out of the front of her body, with Rose's gem seated squarely on Steven's belly as her physical form poofed into the air around him.
You'd think fucking, fighting for control, and fucking some more would get boring a while.
How long has it been?
Where ya'll at?
Tryin to get my late night SU on, but no one is saying shit.
I love Garnet. I think she's only gotten better since she's reformed, I don't understand the hate.
(I relate most to Pearl.)
That anon probably isn't even being mean there. About 60 or so anons are regularly in the /trash/ thread.
He might be wearing earskins. They're thin silicone tunnels which are usually transparent, specifically so that the hole looks naked while keeping its shape. Also, gauge is a unit of measurement. You're thinking of plugs or tunnels.
Groundbreaking theory: Lars is a grown up version of this asshole.
I think i've come to realize "clod" is like the gem version of nigger.
>This sack of shit and Sadie will end up together in the end no matter what
She and Lars deserve each other
The movie she left for Steven makes it seem pretty clear that she and Greg both knew what was coming. Which makes me want to know what made them ultimately agree to something like that. I can even see a future flashback episode of Rose convincing Greg to do it, seeing as how Greg doesn't seem like the type to let someone he loves die for no reason. She must have either had a really good reason or been really good at persuading Greg to go along with it.
>Lars will end up with the sack of shit that is Sadie
Not even Lars deserves that
>thread still alive
My god, does this mean we've finally stopped being hated on?
