“Thank You Steven” by Solstice-Rose


We have been eagerly awaiting the chance to post some Lapis Lazuli fan art. Ain’t she a Gem? Check it out on Deviant Art.

The wider Gem world after Ocean Gem

Now we come to our final bit of speculation after the airing of Mirror Gem and Ocean Gem (first we talked about what we learned about Gem technology, then what we learned about the Crystal Gems themselves). Finally we come to the big question: what might Gemkind be like?

Song of the week: Desert Glass

Because the events of Ocean Gem temporarily turned Beach City into Desert City, this week we recognize Desert Glass as our song of the week.



The Crystal Gems after Ocean Gem

As an important milestone episode, Ocean Gem gave us some information to chew on. We’ve already discussed the implications of the magic mirror, and tomorrow we’ll talk about what Gem society might be like, but today we’ll be talking about the Crystal Gems and what their history might be.

What the magic mirror could mean

Mirror Gem and Ocean Gem gave us a lot of new information to work with, but as is usually the case we now have even more questions than we did before—very interesting questions that it will be great to have answered as the series goes on.
