Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 116: Three Gems and a Baby

PodcastTitleGC13, Sophia, and Hunter have the goods with a discussion of Three Gems and a Baby.

Well if baby Steven isn’t just the cutest baby we’ve ever seen… Greg also helps him get a diamond onto his chest, not long after we get confirmation on the cool kids’ ages.

So what do you think? Does a Gem’s gem shrink and grow as they shapeshift or fuse, or does it actually stay the same size and it’s only drawn as bigger or smaller for aesthetic appeal?

Carabiner! Carabiner!

    I thought this episode was fantastic. I really enjoyed how each Gem took Rose’s state differently. While we didn’t get focus on any one character’s grief, they were able to pack in so much nuance and hints of how they felt in such a short amount of time.

    As for how Steven’s anatomy works, I think his Gem is kind of like his heart, and his organs would quickly shut down if it was removed. One possibility is that, considering how Gem creation involves the conversion of organic energy into magical Gem energy, Rose’s Gem could be tied directly to Steven’s life force, meaning the gem may die as well if removed from Steven. We haven’t see any limit to a Gem’s energy, but it’s possible it could be finite given certain conditions.

    They’ve always had things happen for comedic/dramatic purposes despite continuity. The Gems knowing what a Red Eye is but having no idea what other modern Gem tech is, Pearl’s sand-kinesis, them referring to things as “magic”, and “idiot” plots that require characters to act OOC in order to happen, like Fusion Cuisine, House Guest, Secret Team, and Island Adventure.

    What? Steven’s gem was much bigger compared to his body as a baby because he was a small BABY now he’s 14 (8 year old stature but.still).

    I would think if his gem was removed, it would have to take place at Rose’s fountain. Since all of that is healing tear essence, he could possibly have to be infinitely healed for his organs not to fail him. Therefore, he would have to travel in a bubble full of tears, like a bacta tank. But hey, who knows how his anatomy does work?
