Definitely took this episode as a love letter to fandom :D “Yes, these places have been founded/explored before, but when you record your perception of them with such intimate care and attention to detail, they become fresh and new” *LOOKS AT THE CAMERA* “…for the reader to enjoy.”
I can’t believe Rose Quartz personally validated us as creators of transformative fanworks. TuT What a gem.
On a completely different note THAT’S BLUE DIAMOND’S PALANQUIN WHY WOULD YOU SHOW US THAT JUST TO TEASE US AGH WHAT HAPPENED HERE???? WHAT’S UP WITH THE LIONS?!??!?!
Y’all, I think this is my favorite episode. Gora was great, everyone was like, “En, you okay?” and then come to find out the whole thing was because of that Christmas card, they just invited the monster to their Christmas party, and the BEPPUS!
The Beppus were on their A+ game today, no joke. They were dehydrated, I tell you. They were all set to Grinch it up, and thesecond Gora was like, “Hey, wanna Christmas?” they were like, “We would literally trade our firstborn children to have Christmas with you.” Somebody get them a glass of water. And then they they’re just like, “Cancel all of the shenanigans we had planned, Dad, we got invited to Christmas with that man!”
Dadacha be like, “O.o. Uh…okay?”
And then they way they just flat out Another Yumoto and pretend he doesn’t exist, and they’re super “notice me senpai” to Gora, I was dying. Especially since En was throwing so much shade.
That frosting on the face scene was the single most thirsty thing I’ve ever seen.
Dadacha’s charades-style communication to the Beppus was great.
The Reindeer Monster just wanted to have a Kuripa!
”Let’s just close our eyes for no reason.“
“Oh, no, my stomach, it hurts~”
“Everyone, this way, to the hospital!”
“No way, they fell for it…”
And someone ruining their plans to transform at every turn.
Those idiots are sharing a pair of gloves, and they made a giant sweater which was definitely for Gora, the Beppus were the MVP of this episode.
This post went on longer than I thought it would. -_- At any rate, long story short, the Student Council sent a postcard, and that cinched this as a great episode for me. I loved literally everything about this.
Have you seen the 4th episode of season 4 (couldn’t resist could ya)? What did you think of this cute episode? Come discuss it with us and all its nerdy glory at Crystal Gem Universe, a Steven Universe fan forum!
I have no idea what next week’s episode is about, but there will be cute winter clothes and snowball fights and the senpai team up in the way of the jumps in the opening (En and Ryuu vs Atsushi and Io) which is cool because we don’t see the boys interacting much outside of their usual duos that much.
