Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 17: Love Letters

PodcastTitleKen, GC13, and Dakota talk about the second Lamar Abrams / Hellen Jo episode to air in a row: Love Letters, and Ken delivers a full-throated defense of the previous episode: Shirt Club.

We get the introduction of Sadie’s mother, some actual characterization for Jamie, and even some more adorable interaction between Steven and Connie. We also get food for thought: is Kansas really a film hub, or did Jamie not feel like he had what it took to try his hand at acting in Hollywood?

The next episode of Steven Universe might very well be a big one: Reformed is coming. Be sure to listen in next week for our thoughts on it!

    The Water Bear Monster:

    It has a cone-shaped Gem, so it’s most certainly a Gem Creature.
    As to why Garnet didn’t just smash the fat helpless thing and bubble the gem, I dunno.
    She’s probably just focusing on other things right now.
    Or maybe there was some kind of risk to fighting it close to Steven and Connie.

    In regards to the Earth of Steven Universe.

    Florida also does not exist, when seen in space.

    So dear Ken, yes, the Earth is different and Kansas is probably the film hub.

      It does not follow that because the earth is different, Kansas is likely a film hub. That may or may not be the case, but I do not think this episode implied as much.

        But if Jamie had said he had gone into the Gazorninplat scene until he had to bail, we wouldn’t be having this conversation: nothing about their conversation implies that there’s anywhere but Kansas to be if you want to be in movies (or Gazorninplats). Yes it’s possible that Jamie is simply an idiot, but in the absence of any indication that he was wrong about Kansas it’s best to assume that it is, indeed, this world’s movie making hub.

          It seemed clear to me that the joke was “Jamie thought Kansas was a good place to act, isn’t he so silly?”.

            The thing that makes me think that Kansas is the hub of acting in this universe is because Connie immediately says “Oh, are you an inspiring thespian?” after he mentions Kansas, without a beat of confusion or anything like that. There is more evidence lending credence to Kansas being the “new LA” than against it, I think.

            • gc13 on April 28, 2015 at 4:05 pm

            Mr. Abrams, in this tweet, seems to be under the impression that Kansas is in fact where people who want to be in movies should go.

            So yeah: GC13 wins. ^_^

    I have a theory about the Homeworld Rulers. I would post this on a more relevant page, but I was already here.

    The picture drawn on the walls of the Pyramid Temple have me thinking…we’re kinda suspecting that Rose may have been some kind of “Pink Diamond” back on Homeworld, and I’ve already said here before that I don’t think that the rulers are all Diamonds, just Yellow Diamond is.

    I think that the Gem that Steven pulled out of the temple power source was one of the Homeworld Rulers.

    I have a theory that the Moon Goddess Statue is based on one of the rulers, White Moonstone. The version of Rose that was fighting the gem depicted on the temple (who I have taken to calling Blue Topaz) shows her wielding some kind of floating gem. I have a headcannon where that’s not Rose, but a fusion of Rose Quartz and White Moonstone fighting Blue Topaz. I also think that White Moonstone’s gem is not on her body, but she carries it.

    Perhaps White Moonstone was also a dissenter from Homeworld, but it’s not really heavily known. Perhaps she only betrayed Homeworld during the last battle.

    I haven’t actually checked myself, but supposedly Sadie’s mom is listed as Barb in the credits.

    • Orion on April 27, 2015 at 8:13 pm

    which would verify your claim

    So… heeeeere’s a question. WHY is Florida gone? Mebbe… the first Kindergarten was there?

    1. ….. We don’t really need Florida.

  1. Also, did i mention yet that I’m a theatre major? Jamie was definitely just like some kids I know.
