Could you give some examples from the ask "Steven shows he doesn't know how to help humans in comparison with Gems", please?
Steven has a habit of… overstepping the boundaries of his human pals. He also continually misunderstands them.
He almost always ignores Lars’ boundaries, pushing and pushing and then getting confused when Lars pushes back.
Don’t get me wrong- Lars is your typically jerky teenager. But Steven needs to realize that, when Lars says no, even if he thinks he can convince him otherwise if he just tries whatever he says no to, it’s still no.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, Steven has trouble ever saying no to The Cool Kids. (Any of the other teenagers, honestly)
He lets himself be convinced to ride in Peridot’s escape pod, despite knowing full well it was dangerous.
He lost days of sleep trying to cover Kiki, until finally he put his foot down because it wasn’t helping anything.
Steven is simply too easily drawn into the mystique of being human, too headstrong, to realize he barrels over other’s of his (half)species in his attempts to help.
All his life, it’s been Gem work and Gem stuff. He doesn’t really get it.
After all, we’ve seen the Gems’ form of fun; board games, karaoke, movie nights. Things that can be done from the comfort of the Temple. And Steven loves it! He loves hanging out at home and doing these little things. His life is 70% work and 20% helping Gems recover, with that remaining 10% being saved for spending time with Greg and having fun.
But he’s not really had the chance to adjust to the outside world. Every experience is brand new and potent.
He’s used to the Gems; creatures who are just as stubborn as him. He doesn’t realize that not everybody can physically pick him up and set him on the couch with a ‘no.’ Sometimes, words are enough- should be enough.
To put it bluntly, with a mild slip of the tongue; it’s a damn good thing this lil’ boy is good at fixing things. If he wasn’t, he probably wouldn’t be as liked as he is in Beach City.
A few years ago my dad (who’s a prof) did the convocation address for new students and had a silly gimmick where he took off his teaching robes to reveal a wetsuit underneath. Something about the suit you’ll actually wear idk. My brother and I were so embarrassed and only hoped everybody would forget about this.
But my town was small, so it became like a city-wide meme where ppl would show up to HS and college graduation ceremonies and pull off their robes onstage to reveal increasingly terrible wetsuits underneath. Like they sent out emails about this warning people to stop doing it. The uni eventually took down the original youtube video of it. Thank God.
But I was sitting in class today (I go to a completely different school far away from my hometown) about to take my final and our professor said he had something funny to show us that would lift our spirits. AND HE PULLED UP THE VIDEO THAT WAS SAVED TO HIS COMPUTER OF MY DAD TALKING TO 6,000 STUDENTS IN A WETSUIT.
IN FRONT OF MY 500-PERSON LECTURE HALL.
I was already silently dying bc this was Awful™ but THEN a girl next to me, who I’ve never spoken to before in my life, leaned forward in her chair and said to me “Honestly, I think he’s kind of hot. Would you hit it?”
Have you ever tried drawing with just water and a broom? In case anyone missed this post, Wander was recently approved to be a character that can be drawn via water art by custodial at Disneyland! Finally got to see it in action for myself yesterday, so I took a video of the process! Huge thank you to @alicia-lvn and @extraordinarycircus for teaming together to help make this possible! And, of course, to the cast member who was kind enough to draw Wander for us.
Shirtless, Senior year, ok-about-his-scars, bandanna-wearing Captain Neil. Here we see the results of Neil having possibly channeled all his nervous energy- re:Andrew being away- into gym time and runs.
Idk I drew this at work. Stealthily. So my coworkers can’t guess how gay I am.
