They-Must-Be-Building-Something

Feeling lost, and at first I scream,
“I’ve never seen so much outside about you,
Where have you been?”
Shouting, “Where the fuck have you been?”

But it doesn’t matter,
You should’ve got in touch when you felt my prayers.
I would’ve been there for you,
Only for you,
Waiting in the forest.

I,
I,
I have lost,
I have lost.

I,
I,
I have lost,
I have lost.

This is a sound of the haunting on the inside,
I still hear your screams,
They still haunt me,
In my dreams.

“Are you okay?” he cried,
“Get up and please don’t lie to me, don’t do it again.”
When I saw you I died,
You were on your knees and crawled to me, don’t do it again.

I,
I,
I have lost,
I have lost.

I,
I,
I have lost,
I have lost.

I’m so sick of always feeling half awake,
And I’m so tired of being set up for the end.

‘Cause you’ve done again,
You’ve done again,
You’ve done again.

When I found you,
I felt undone to my mind.

When I found you,
I felt undone to my mind

“Are you okay?” he cried,
“Get up and please don’t lie to me.”
When I saw you I died,
You were on your knees and crawled to me.

“Are you okay?” he cried,
“Get up and please don’t lie to me.”
When I saw you I died,
You were on your knees and crawled to me.

TOP 10 RELEASES OF THE YEAR - NUMBER 9
Flood of Red They Must Be Building Something 

I must say that I’ve been a fucking massive fan of Flood since someone on good old Paramorefans told me I could get their album for $1 (or something) and since then they haven’t exactly released a whole load of stuff. In fact, this is their first release since said album in 2010, as far as I’m aware. Anyway this is fucking awesome and I’m not entirely sure what else to say about it. Basically, just give it a listen and I’m pretty sure you won’t be disappointed. Especially if you’re a fan of The Xcerts (or the Scottish scene as a whole) or Brand New.

What is gem harvesting? SU Theory

Hello again. Today I’m here to present my idea on what gem harvesting may be.

Lets look at the evidence we have now

Catch and Release 

In the episode, when Peridot is freed from her bubble, she looks up and sees all the other bubbled gems in the temple, in which she exclaims,


“Oh my stars… You’re going to harvest me?!”

What we can gather from this is that harvesting has something to do with a large collection of bubbled gems.

Ever since Catch and Release, gem harvesting has yet to been mentioned again. This leads to believe to show must be building up to something big

And that big thing has come.

Gem Harvest

In the recent NYCC panel, it was revealed that Gem Harvest will be a half hour special. And we all know what the last half hour special was.

So yes, we will almost certainly get something about gem harvesting. So lets break down what we have so far.

In the episode, Steven goes to barn to visit Peridot and Lapis. Once he gets there, he sees that they have started a farm. At first, Peridot and Lapis thought that vegetables worked like gems, and explained that they still miss Homeworld. Afterwards, Steven help grows a sentient pumpkin dog with his powers. And the pumpkins sort of becomes Lapis and Peridot’s pet.

This raises a few questions. First off, how did they grow all that food so fast?

In Same Old World, Steven states that summer is coming to end. In Onion Gang, its stated that fall has started. At the most, only about a month could have pasted between these episode. And remember, Steven has visited the barn between these episode. So I’m guessing only about 2 weeks has pasted at the most. I’m guessing Lapis and Peridot may have been able to get the farm set up in that amount of time, with Lapis’s waterbending, Peridot’s metal bending, and her knowledge of machinery. But getting it all grown?Impossible.  

So how did they do it? The answer lies in one of the shows earliest episodes, Serious Steven

Awhile after this episode aired, someone made a post about how all of the strawberries could of grow. The posted stated that minerals help gems grow. They concluded at the end that since the gem battlefield was full of shattered gems, that was helping the strawberries grow. 

So how did Lapis and Peridot get all that food to grow? They used gem shards.

This is what I believe gem harvesting is.

Gem harvesting is the process of using gem shards to help grow new gems.

It would make sense for Lapis and Peridot to do this. After all, they where expecting at first the vegetables to work like gems, so why wouldn’t they?  Remember, they both came from Homeworld, and on Homeworld, at least for YD, is all about efficiency. And using gem shards for this purpose is more efficient than letting them turn into random body parts and wander around. Lapis and Peridot most likely share this opinion. 

In the SU Short, How Are Gems Made?, Amethyst states that a sort of colorful goop is injected into the ground to make gems. This would also help us explain what this colorful goop is.

This would also explain Peridot’s fear in Catch and Release. When Peridot even thought about the fact she may be harvested, her first instinct was to attack Steven, on of the few CG’s to ever show her kindness.

This is all I have for now. And for those complaining Homeworld would never do something this dark, Homeworld has been shown to dark things in the past 

Hope you all enjoyed this theory!
