Okay, do you have a list of anymore songs by Deedee? I just learned about I would be so pleased about an hour before you reblogged it and I know about her singing through the fire at the kareoke bar, but I didn't know about this and clearly you seem to have some knowledge here. So anymore that you're aware of?

There’s quite a few recordings of stuff she’s sung on Youtube. I can make a list of the stuff I could find

She was also in the Mickey Mouse Club and a band that spun off from that called The Party but I can’t really recognize her voice in those personally so I didn’t list them

You can tell a lot about a person from the kind of music they listen to.
Put your music device on shuffle and post the first ten songs without skipping. Tag ten people after.

the classic: coffee shop au

I do not know which fandom/pairing you wish, anon, so I will make it up!

1) It’s not like Teddy doesn’t want to go to college, but college is expensive and he figures he’ll need an extra year or two to save up for it. Besides, he’s not sure he knows what he wants to be yet, and he doesn’t want to waste time and money when he doesn’t have a plan. So? He works at a little arty coffee and tea shop in the Village and spends the down time people-watching.

2) Billy’s at NYU, of course, though there’s a part of him that wonders whether he should have gone farther afield. He insisted on a dorm, though, so he’s not that loser staying at home during college…except his roommate Tommy is the worst, so maybe he should have rethought all that. He’s got no idea what he wants to do with his life, but whatever, it’ll sort itself out.

3) Tommy is always on the go and has an addiction to coffee that is scary to behold. He’s also got a crush on a part-time Columbia student who works at this fancy coffee/tea shop in the Village, so Billy lets himself get dragged along to stare creepily at her. Only there’s a really embarrassing incident with soy chai and fresh-baked cookies and, like, this blond-haired coffee god, and oh wow, he really doesn’t have time to have a stupid crush like this.

4) Except too late, because Teddy is smart and funny and sweet and so so so handsome it kind of hurts to look at him. He always smiles when Billy comes in, and the way he leans on the counter to chat with him send unfortunate flutters through his stomach. Pretty soon, he’s there all the time–reading or doing his homework and silently psyching himself up to ask Teddy out.

5) He never gets the chance. Tommy apparently tells Kate the whole sad story, and Kate just rolls her eyes and leans over the dessert display to ask Teddy out for Billy. At first Teddy is super-confused (wait, is Kate asking him out? …what?) but when he catches on, the smile he shoots Billy is so big and bright that Billy stops trying to sink under the nearest table and smiles shyly back. (He also kicks Tommy in the shin as he goes over to make plans with Teddy, because Tommy is such a dick.)

Regarding Pearl always having her foot in her mouth, something else I noticed is that often when Pearl isn’t sure how to word something, she’ll turn to others to “help her out” and say it for her (usually Garnet, but sometimes Amethyst and increasingly Steven). I think it’s kind of a knee-jerk reaction for her to turn to help when she gets flustered, whether it’s because she’s already messed it up once or simply can’t think of a perfect way to say a difficult thing.

(cont.) Of course, I think that also makes her scene with Amethyst in “On the Run” even more powerful. Steven explains that *she* needs to talk to Amethyst, and even though it’s a difficult conversation and Pearl keeps messing up and getting flustered, she powers through and says what she needs to say. It’s a subtle bit of character growth for Pearl, and a good message that sometimes *you* need to say something, even if it’s not perfect, rather than hoping for someone else to say it “better”.

That’s a good point, she does do that a lot. As much as she loves talking and explaining things, she often looks to the others when she’s at a loss, especially for less ‘fact’ based things (like in “So Many Birthdays” and “Alone Together”). It’s another thing I can relate to, since its often easier to have people who understand me speak for me than for me to try and explain and do it all wrong. Similarly, although she didn’t have anyone else speak to her, when she couldn’t figure out what she was supposed to say to Connie in “Full Disclosure”, she admitted she was at a loss and then left the conversation (which a lot of people seem to hold against her? But, I dunno, Steven put her in a really bad position of having to lie without knowing why or what to say. Which I would think would be hard for anyone to navigate but especially someone with known difficulty in social situations. Not the proper way to handle it, certainly, but not some big crime and honestly admitting she doesn’t know what’s going on is a much better response than making up a lie)

But yea, you really need to be able to talk to people yourself and try to make it through tough conversations, even with the errors you may make. It is a nice character moment for her to speak to Amethyst directly in that scene and especially that she screwed up explaining, as she often does, and had to reword it. Because I think that’s pretty important, because people, or some people at least (like myself) aren’t the best at communicating properly and its nice to allow people a chance to correct themselves. The others seem to know she has this problem and may get momentarily annoyed when she says these things but also don’t seem to hold it against her for too long, which I like. As you said, its a good message to show you need to say something and communicate yourself even if its not perfect and similarly its a good message to show it doesn’t necessarily have to be perfect as long as its genuine and you acknowledge your mistakes

While communication seems to be a major theme of season 2, its really a big theme in the show overall. How you need to be able to talk to and be honest with people and make your feelings known. And that its not an easy thing but its kind of necessary. And different people have different ways of communicating and we all kind of have to give and take to be able to understand each other, instead of always expecting people to be able to communicate the way we want them to.
