Sophia and GC13 discuss the first episode this site was around to post about (and serious contender for Best Funny Faces): An Indirect Kiss.
Which was your funny face? Steven?? Steven.? Steven!? And those are only the Connie faces. Steven and Pearl were really on their games as well. It’s alright if you can’t choose a favorite: neither can we.
Story frames are fun, and so are new powers for Steven. (Don’t feel left out, Connie: magical destinies have a way of letting everyone in on the fun. Besides, eating that sandwich with so little to drink makes you a hero to us, even this early in the series.)
I don’t think it’s out of character for Pearl to immediately want to put up a fence. They had a fence before and she jumped at the chance to get another one in Full Disclosure.
As for them freaking out, I think it’s obvious this is one of the first times we see them faced with a problem they can’t solve with force. We saw a similar reaction in So Many Birthdays.
The thing is, it doesn’t make sense with what we saw when Steven continued the story: both Garnet and Pearl were very concerned about Amethyst’s immediate situation, so it’s really weird that Pearl would proclaim that they need to build a fence while she’s still fretting about how they’re going to keep Amethyst from dying.
She may not have said it in that same way, but I can see Pearl, while freaking out about Amethyst’s condition, would say something about how a fence would’ve prevented this. For Pearl, since Rose was the only one with healing, building something that reinforces rules and structure would be her first solution.
if Rose tears are a big deal, maybe would be like Saphire kind like to Blue Diamond.
Maybe Rose if she is not the Pink D then high in ranking in that or something.
Since it’s usually mentioned, this episode was storyboarded by Paul & Raven, who also gave us a wide variety of big faces in “Message Received” and “Full Disclosure”.
I had a dream there was a new episode today. I woke up in tears.
Does Homeworld consider Gem Magic to be magic or is it just science at this point?
Has Peridot ever used the word Magic?
Is it just that old Gem society called it Magic before they understood it or because that’s just how they describe it to humans.
Peridot hasn’t referred to what powers their technology, so it could be science that is powered by magic.
