We've got about a dozen episodes left in the first season. This leg of the journey's almost over.

It's so great that a huge component of her character is what actual mothers and sons have, that genuine "You don't know me and I don't know how to relate to you."

"They're here to hollow out the Earth!"

He was right.

Garnet's "We kept Amethyst." line from Steven's Lion seems a lot more meaningful... and Pearl laughing about it seems way less funny.

So I had guessed from what Sugar said about gems not reproducing that gems were just formed by their homeworld's geology, but never figured something this horrific. I'm guessing "normal" gems forming doesn't put too much of a strain on the environment (or only happens at the homeworld), but it's extremely slow, and expansionists started making the kindergartens.

Okay lets follow this logic string using normal earth stones as comparison Gems must take EONS to form.

My guess is that the REALLY REALLY powerful gems like Rose are originals, Pearl and one of Garnet's gems before fusion are artificial like Amethyst but made through less extreme measures possibly on the original world.

I'm guessing Garnet is as tough as she is because she's a fusion of an Artificial and Original.

Story-wise, you can tell a lot of thought has been put into the background and how it's presented to the audience. Just as important, though, is that is has characters endearing and with enough depth to give a shit about. When you've got these elements working together at once the results are some amazing pathos: Lion 3 and On the Run are probably the best examples; if aliens draining the earth to mine people using giant bacteriophage wasn't creepy enough, Amethyst talking about how she was born out of a hole in the wall sure fixed that. Also, it's usually pretty funny!

Art-wise, the character-designs are extremely diverse, expressive, and aesthetically pleasing, the animation is pretty good (although some storyboarders's style are worse, or at least very different, from others), and the backgrounds are beautiful. The music is really good too.

>232994
However it works, and regardless of the motives/morality of whoever made the kindergartens, it does indicate some harsh consequences for the gems as a people. They don't age and they're hard to kill, but they're always fighting and sometimes get corrupted. If they really come into being that slow, they'll probably never go extinct, but could end up with new gems just being born scattered in the middle of nowhere with no one to live with or society to learn from.

the longest of the long shots

so the polymorphic sentient rocks came to earth to create more gems, perhaps your civilization has perished and few original gem survived, those that can be differentiated by staying in a unique color pattern, such as lapis lazuli and rose quartz, (I can not tell if her dress is white or a very light pink), then to rebuild their civilization they created artificial gem on their home planet, as garnet, pearl and peridot, but the planet did not have enough resources to reconstruct all its civilization it turned to the land and its mineral resources, probably before mankind dominion over the earth, were used as labor by the gems, which would probably make rose to fight against his own people. Rose and her followers probably won the battle and closed the passage between the worlds, and helping early humans as guardians.

The people in charge of AT must be at odds with each other because I keep seeing attempts to roll back interesting plot points into the status quo. The end result is that the show has become remarkably boring and depressingly obtuse. Whatever fun the series had is being lost to this vague introspective bullshit.
The show needs a total recharge or just to end soon, because it's getting sad to see all that potential and progression flushed down the drain.

SU seems to be far better structured beforehand, so I'm hoping it'll retain it's wonder for longer.

I... don't think it's implying any sort of past intimate relationship between Greg and Amethyst, but there's definitely room for interpretation.

Regardless, the whole thing hit hard.

On a different subject, I've been theorizing as to how Gems become corrupted. The main theories I've come up with are that it's something that has always happened, it's something that only happens to Gems from the Kindergarten, or that Earth's environment disagrees with their biology (mineralogy?) somehow. Anyone got any others ideas they like?

So here's my read on the situation:

Amethyst and Rose used to be close and Amethyst liked that. Then Rose met Greg and started spending more time with him, which made Amethyst feel rejected. Some time after Rose died, Amethyst and Greg started spending time with each other because they had shared interests. However, Greg kept leaving because he had other things he needed to do (being a father and a small business owner and a biological human). When he did, Amethyst got that same feeling of rejection, which turned into resentment toward Greg for taking Rose away from her. She would then lash out at Greg by using her shapeshifting powers to taunt him, especially by turning into Rose.

I don't think there was anything untoward going on, just Amethyst acting out because of her issues. Kinda weird how Amethyst went from being the shallowest of the Gems to the deepest in just a couple of episodes, huh?

It's possible: the last episode next week (after the two-parter) is about Steven and Connie trying to re-enact a new ending for that book series (which I recall a lot of people complaining didn't have a very good ending itself) by using Rose's Room.

Gems are technically asexual and don't normally reproduce. The line between romantic and platonic feelings between each other is kind of meaningless.

That said, Amethyst definitely saw her as more of a maternal figure.

Even if Pearl felt that way, it doesn't seem Rose reciprocated.

>we have no idea how Garnet was with her.

And while we wait for the inevitable to be revealed, it's another good thing to speculate about.

If I had to guess, I'd say Garnet thought she was, if not a rival, than someone to aspire to be equal or better to, contrast with Pearl who basically puts Rose on a pedestal at all times.

It's a perspective that's the norm so it wasn't actually adding anything to the conversation. It's also dangerously close to "why do they need to be in love? Why can't they just be friends?" as though that's mutually exclusive and/or not what everyone says every time there's even a hint of a non-straight romance.

Also I'm mildly worried if that's how you and your past teachers spoke to/about each other

Don't have any real opinion on SU shipping or Pearl/Rose since I haven't actually watched the show yet, but my personal aversion to shipping goggles comes more from conditioning in the old days of "classic" yaoi fandom when Drarry/Clophiroth/GW 1x2/Legogorn/RoyEd/BuffyFaith/etc were still huge things with extreme levels of overanalysis (they said something nice to each other that means they love each other!) and often accompanied with HORRENDOUS misogyny/misandry.

The circles I was in had bizarre double standards that led to Harmonians rightfully getting ostracized while rabid Drarry and Snarry shippers went unchecked so it took until Zutara before I developed that same distaste towards hetshippers, but since the vast majority of negative experiences I've had with extreme shipper behavior during my early fandom days occurred with same-sex pairings that made it harder for me to unlearn that skepticism even with more legitimate queer couplings.

Man amorous or not their relationship was way deeper than that. Pearl was incredibly defensive over even the very idea that Rose might keep secrets from her or that she was only as important as all the other Gems. That's the whole point of the episode, showing how Pearl related with Rose. It's really interesting especially since, for how protective she was of her special status, she doesn't show Steven or Greg any resentment at all. She actually seems fairly fond of both of them.

It's set up to be vague enough that any interpretation (worship, lovers, one-sided crush, obsession, whatever) is valid at this point. Neither the people who insist it can only be completely platonic or the people who insist that they were definitely in a relationship before are necessarily right, nor do they have the right to insist that people who see it the opposite way are clearly blinded by their heterocentrism/(anti)shipping goggles. Can we just agree to leave it there?

I'm not.
All I said was deep and loving relationships don't have to be romantic, and the relationship here doesn't look like a romantic kind.
Then it blew up into weird accusations and assumptions.

I take this same perspective with straight relationships. Just because people care about each other doesn't mean they're fucking.

Frankly it's not that important and I'm mostly just responding to comments like:
>your snarky oh-so-helpful comment
>folks get so defensive
>heir "hetero lenses".
>>233751
Like I was some standard homophobic villain for not thinking the relationship seemed romantic. That sucks.
I don't like people making assumptions about me. I want to make sure my point is clear and people understand what I mean. So let me clear the air as best I can.

-If Rose and Pearl where romantically/sexually involved, that's fine.
-Pearls interest in Rose came off as quasi-religious servitude from my perspective.

That's about as clear as I can get. I'm moving on.

"Onion Trade" and "Beach Party" are the only episodes I can think of that don't contain character development for a main character, introduction of a concept important to the setting, major plot developments, or foreshadowing thereof. "Joking Victim" and "Steven and the Stevens" are close, because they just have the VCR Steven would use in "Lion 3" and the flash-forward to "Ocean Gem".

>Possibly Watermelon Steven (or whatever it was called), too.

That introduced Rose and Steven's ability to grow sentient plants. A lot of people theorize Rose used that to make Lion, and Steven using it at some later point seems inevitable.

This is Garnet.
Back together.
And I'm never goin' down at the hands of the likes of you, because I'm so much better.
And every part of me is saying, "Go get her."
The two of us ain't gonna follow your rules.
Come at me without any of your fancy tools.
Let's go just me and you.
Let's go just one on two.
Go ahead and try to hit me if you're able.
Can't you see that my relationship is stable?
I can see you hate the way we intermingle.
But I think you're just mad cause you're single.
And you're not gonna stop what we made together.
We're gonna stay like this forever.
If you break us apart, we'll just come back newer.
And we'll always be twice the gem that you are.
I am made
O-o-o-o-of
Lo-o-o-o-ove.
Lo-o-o-o-ove.
Lo-o-o-o-ove.
Lo-o-o-o-ove.
Lo-o-o-o-ove.



Pearl: Okay ship, turn us around.
This is who we are.
This is who I am.
And if you think you can stop me, then you need to think again.
'Cause I am a feeling, and I will never end.
And I won't let you hurt my planet.
And I won't let you hurt my friends.
Go ahead and try to hit me if you're able.
Can't you see that my relationship is stable?
I know you think that I'm not something you're afraid of.
'Cause you think that you've seen what I'm made of.
But I am even more then the two of them.
Everything they care about is what I am.
I am their fury, I am their patience, I am a conversation.
I am made
O-o-o-o-of
Lo-o-o-o-ove.
Lo-o-o-o-ove.
And it's stronger than you.
O-o-o-o-of
L-o-o-o-ove.
L-o-o-o-ove.

Oh hey. That was pretty cool.
I screwed it up for myself and saw them in the wrong order so I'm royally pissed off at myself for that but I still dug it.
I guess in the grand scheme of things there really is nothing in this show that isn't relevant in one way or another.

Yeah Estelle is a more RnB singer while here they had her singin Sugar's "cute girl with ukelele" style of music only with a post-synthpop arrangement. Its a noteable mismatch but I still liked it.

Here is my theory on that, the Gems appear to have allegiances with most non-crystal gems wearing a diamond shaped insignia with a color denoting alliance.

Pearl's space suit for instance had a pink diamond shape, supposedly what she wore during space travel shortly before arriving on earth, my assumption being these alliances have giant ships which are stone statues with individual pieces either created by or owned by the members.

Giant stone statue decorated by gems being their ships, the lighthouse statue base if this is true would be a centuries old and far less advanced which is why it's so small in comparison.

This explains why all three hands of the statue fell off at the same place having originally been detachable, my guess also being that the old ships where literally just stone with the gems stuck in it to pilot it.

Whereas the new ships are constructed thus allowing them to have space to move inside due to size and superior construction.

If you've been following the show's ending theme (hard given it only airs on digital version and some reruns), you'll have noticed it changed for season 1b and started getting mixed up a lot.

Well for "Jail Break", the season 1a theme came back with a little something extra.

Seeing as gems don't have a biological sex to begin with, even if they are capable of having nonbinary genders it doesn't necessarily make them trans either. Like, Stevonnie is probably nonbinary, but in a cis way, if that makes any sense. Maybe trans compared to the male and female components, but since they're a hermaphroditic being to begin with their body probably matches their gender identity, which would the definition of cis.

Also, fyi gender presentation =/= gender identity. I personally like to present as what most people consider androgynous or masculine, but I consider myself cis female and it's fucking infuriating when SJWs who already know how I identify seriously try to convince me that I'm actually a deeply closeted, self-hating trans man. Likewise my neutrois friend prefers to present as feminine in public even though they're considering top surgery.

Wildcard character. Some people prefer the term transsexual over transgender and vice versa so it's a good compromise. Plus trans can be used as the same prefix for a bunch of other different gender identities. Some people don't like having that symbol there at all though so I don't know if I even should be using it or not.

Hm, point. Plus his being a gem-altered human would explain how he and Rose were able to have a kid, what with that usually being biologically impossible (Gems being non-biological beings and all).

Wouldn't his having a Grand Exalted Past kind of conflict with the idea of him being just an every day sort of person who just happened to make a connection with an immortal magical alien though?

I dont know if it is just more greg jung o if it means something, but he does not seem the type of guy who would have weapons, not sure about the rest.
When Pearl said that greg and amethyst used to disappear for days shows that they had an old friendship, and when amethyst said "I had someone who was there for me Until she started hanging out with you" maybe she was talking about Greg.
My theory is that the gem needed human to work in kindergarten but as the human life span was very short, especially compared to the gems there were experiments, not to make them immortal, but to prolong their lives, greg even said "space race" that he would not live forever. And it was this same human who fought in the war.
Kindergarten probably existed during the war and when the home planet gems fled led all gem created there, amethyst least that was still in process and was found by pink to turn off the machine that was creating her, but she already had passed the point, who knows what kind of side effect this may have had. Equanto that Greg was the only or one of the few human survivors of the war, he wandered the world until one day end up in beach city where Rose received he probably already knew who he was.

About Greg and amethyst, and that's only a guess, they probably have a strong link because of kindergarten, do not know what was the state of gem produced there, but maybe they were concientes as they were produced so amethyst has strong feelings by greg.

The rampant racism and homophobia and misogyny on 4chan started as ironic, too. Then people joined who didn't get that it was ironic, just saw that they were getting attention and approval for being horrible, and started acting that way for real, for the attention. And continued to get rewarded for it. Eventually the irony was gone, and you got a board where /pol/ needed to exist just to release some of the pressure from all the genuinely horrible people who had come to make up a significant portion of 4chan's population.

It's basically an outcropping of poe's law. Not only can you not make a parody that outshines the real thing, but you can't make a parody that won't attract people who genuinely believe the things you're saying you do as a joke. When you make a community specifically for those people, it is inevitably going to fill up with the genuine article. So whether they are posing that way ironically or not....give it six months.

It's based on batches of episodes greenlit at once, but with some adjustment for re-ordering:
1a. 1-26: The first 26 episodes greenlit when the show itself got off the ground (fourteen months before the premier).
1b. 27-49: Originally meant to be the next 26 episodes (approved about a week after the series premier), three were moved back to the next season, so it ended up being 23 episodes.
2. 50-104: The 52 episodes greenlit last July plus the three episodes moved from 1b.

The network isn't making these distinction distinctions. We only "know" that "Full Disclosure" is the first episode of season two because that's what one of the writers (Matt Burnett) said.

The staff just seem to be saying the three episodes moved back are part of season two for simplicity and so they can still call "Jail Break" the season finale. The change was pretty last minute, so those three episodes ("Open Book", "Shirt Club", and "Story for Steven") are still set before "Jail Break". However, these episodes were chosen to move because the only continuity error this produces is that Garnet has her pre-"Jail Break" look.

How episodes are packaged in digital sales seems to just be by when a fix number is met--Amazon and iTunes bundle every 26 episodes together (as 13 half-hour episodes) as a season/volume, so "Full Disclosure" and the first three episodes of season two will be included in the "Volume 2/Season 2" grouping ("Full Disclosure" is already in there).

Since this thread is in autosage I can say whatever obscene things I want. I want to lick Pearl's nose.
