Being a girl really sucked sometimes. Wasn’t it enough to be the gender that actually had to carry a baby for nine months and deliver it? No, you had to go through this cramps once every month too.
So when Jace brought you tea with a smirk on his face you looked suspicious.
“Are you laughing at my pain?”
“What?”, he gave back, laughing shortly. “I just made you tea and I’m trying to be nice to you. Don’t be such a grumpy cat.”
“You have no clue how that feels!”, you complained smoldering.
“Thankfully.”, Jace answered. “Can I do anything else for you?”
You shortly thought about it but there was only one thing coming to your mind.
Again he shortly laughed but then followed your wish.

It’s really weird how I’m in the worst mental state of my entire life and have been for a while and yet I’m thriving. I work out and eat right. I get a proper amount of sleep. My assignments are handed in on time and I’m not working too many hours at work, but just enough to pay for my new car to make me feel accomplished, responsible, and productive. My room is clean and my clothes are organized. I drink a good amount of water. I wrote a story for class that I spent three days working on, not just a couple hours the night before. The writing quality in general is better than it used to be. I am crocheting more and have two poetry books in the making. I’m thriving. Mental illness doesn’t care at all, it’ll show up to the party and stay there even if you’re jammin and jivin. It makes me feel so confused and torn and unbalanced because everything in my life is prospering but not me.
Do you have any Steven Universe fic or art recs? What is your favorite episode? Favorite character?
I have not read a lot of SU fanfic (and it kinda seems like there’s not a huge body of work out there for how popular the series is?)
Tiger Stripes is a fave, which I would recommend to someone from any fandom. It’s humanstuck (alas), Jasper pov, and bad-ass muscle ladies dealing with their anger issues and social isolation and history of being an ass, and in the process finding a new family of people, is WOW RIGHT UP MY ALLY, yes, thank you, and may I have another.
For a combo art/fic rec I super recommend @kibbles-bits webcomic New Home. It’s full of alien world-building, cool relationship back story, PERRRRIDOT, Steven being awesome at people (while struggling with his own issues), and also she captures the SU sense of humor just PERFECT.
My favorite episode is “The Answer”, which, coincidentally, functions pretty well as a stand alone story and is one I recommend to people who want to try watching SU. 12 minutes! Great music! Cute lesbian aliens! Nominated for an emmy!
The episode I have watched the MOST is “Mr. Greg”, because it is an almost entirely musical episode with AWESOME SONGS, and when I’m counting tiny insects and trying not to lose my mind I just set it to playing on loop. Also Greg/Pearl platonic-bonding, I adore.
And my favorite character is Peridot, because she is the tiny asshole mad scientist who doesn’t understand emotions but tries hard. Case in point, my favorite quote, from her apology card to Lapis:
“Sorry I interrogated you. You were just full of such useful information. That’s a sincere compliment. - Peridot”
