GC13 and David discuss the state of Steven Universe: where its story has been, and where it’s going.
The State of the Universe is strong. Even though so much has changed since the beginning of the show (do you remember ruins? Monsters of the week? Distance models?), as the show has changed it’s kept everyone intrigued.
Now we just have to wonder what we always wonder about: what’s coming next?
Congrats on 200 eps buds, crazy that this thing has lasted so long
Thanks!! As always, we miss ya :’). Maybe we can squeeze OK KO in here one more time…
GC you don’t know that Emerald is full size. We’ve seen her on screen. She might be super tiny for all we know.
Oh DANG it would be GREAT if Bismuth took the destroyed barn and built Steven’s house back as half Steven’s house and half Lapis and Peridot’s barn holy dang.
I still think that the Pyramid Temple mural is Rose battling against the actual gem powering it, cuz the Gem seems to have some kind of matter-creation abilities, as the moving platforms recede into it before the place detonates. I’d be willing to believe that the whole Temple is just that one Gem there manifesting a “dungeon” that basically tells the story of how it ended up there.
Steven having to step up and fill the role of Pink Diamond and we get an arc of Steven having to visit the moon base and monitor the earth and Peridot advising the colony etc and Steven having to negotiate running the colony in Peridot’s planned way of harvesting resources without hurting the planet, etc etc etc.
Lapis confronting Bismuth about HER being the reason she was locked up in the first place when? Era 2 Peridot being dispatched by Yellow to help Steven repair warp pads and structures to get his “colony” up to code (with Bismuth helping “You’ve got a Bismuth right there, what, has she forgotten how to build?”).
We all know this show ends with Steven hugging the horrendous void terror who created the diamonds and then he learns that Cookie Cat is back in stores and he starts to sing the song and then she show cuts to black.
Maybe fusions of “different” gems have different numbers of limbs/eyes? Like, a Sapphire and Padparadcha? Or like, two different colors of Agate? Or maybe even just two different Diamonds? Or maybe “two different types of Gems” literally just means class based, like, maybe Carnelian and an Amethyst fusion is allowed cuz they’re both Quartz soldiers? Maybe a fusion of a Bismuth and another type of “construction” class Gem? A Lapis Lazuli and a Desert Glass fusion as a perfect terraforming Gem?
