tbh “the barn of new crystal gems” isn’t actually an awful concept if done right… like just. imagine peridot, bismuth, the rubies and jasper all living under one roof with lapis bunking there occasionally on her trips around the world. the barn just gets more and more added onto it until it is an absolute chaotic mess and everyone loves it.
peridot sticks the water silo into the wall and declares it to be her room. she even puts a keep out sign on it with a drawing of her gem on the door like the temple door. inside is ten screens all showing camp pining hearts, the alien doll, and a bunch of other bits of junk peridot has acquired. it looks like a mess but there’s a system to it. only peridot and amethyst understand The System.
eyeball suggests they build a training area to keep their skills sharp. her true motivation is to be buff and attract girls. jasper thinks it’s a fantastic idea and praises eyeball for her pragmatism. eyeball didn’t expect her plan to work so quickly but she’s sure as hell not complaining.
lapis’s room is the truck. it’s sticking out of the roof and has a tarp over it. there’s loads of meep morps in there. no one is allowed in. especially jasper and peridot.
navy has a greenhouse. except it’s a redhouse because she doesn’t get why it’s called a greenhouse if it’s not green and since she’s red she’s going to call it a redhouse. steven gave her cuttings from rose’s gardens to help her get started. one day she will probably go all little shop of horrors on the others.
the ruby ship got cannibalised for parts, but it’s still bigger on the inside and is now doc’s room. very serious things happen in this room. mostly viewings of baseball games so that doc and army can figure out how that game actually works.
leggy starts trying to figure out how the universe works and ends up making a library for them all to use. peridot, leggy, bismuth and navy start a romance book club. it meets in bismuth’s room because the silo is a disaster, the library isn’t private enough, and the greenhouse is full of weird plants. they draw fusions of their preferred couples. it’s all over the library. jasper’s eye twitches every time she sees it.
bismuth was put in charge of the warp pad because she needs to get to her forge. she upgraded everyone’s weapons. every week or so she’ll go to the others with “so i had this idea for improving our gear…” and if the person she talks to is peridot then the results are spectacular. once they tried to make limb enhancers for all of the rubies. including garnet-ruby because they didn’t want her to feel left out. garnet kinda BSOD’d when she saw them because on the one hand EMBARASSING, on the other ADORABLE, on the other OH NO SAPPHY THINKS IT’S CUTE…
jasper’s room is completely metal. she made it out of bits of the beta kindergarten. there’s metal bars and random things with spikes on everywhere. and a bunch of mirrors which she can flex at and practise looking awesome. eyeball joins her sometimes.
(i have accidentally made the ship of eyeball/jasper. idk it’d be cute???)
army insisted on having an actual baseball field set up. she still doesn’t understand the rules but she HAS branched out into other sports. sometimes when the others are being loud a football or hockey stick or something will come flying out of army’s room and hit someone on the head. her aim is impressive. bismuth is very proud.
camp pining hearts is a running gag with all of them. they are all SUPER into it for varying reasons. they had to write a treaty to stop the ship wars because the last one saw two rubies, bismuth and peridot all get poofed and that was REALLY awkward to explain to the main crystal gems.
centipeetle gets healed and joins them. she introduces them all to chaaaaaaaaps.
Our March #KeepHerInTheGame Campaign is our most ambitious plan yet. We hope you’ll help us make it our most successful too!
Campaign Dates: March 1st- March 31st
We are sending FOX executives Dana Walden, Gary Newman, and Tony Tompson baseballs. Most of you by now are probably familiar with the names Dana Walden and Gary Newman. Just a reminder that they are the final decision makers over at the network. The fate of Pitch literally lies in their hands. Tony Tompson may be a new name to you. Tony is VP of Drama Development & Programming and without his work, Pitch would’ve never made it to our television screens. Tony is an extremely important person to target right now and we want to make sure to also show him how much we want the show back.
Dana and Gary are the priority to send baseballs to.
If you are sending more than one baseball, we urge you to consider sending at least one baseball to Tony separately.
Write on your baseballs #KeepHerInTheGame, #RenewPitch, and whatever other hashtags tickle your fancy. Please remember to be respectful. No demands.
We asked you guys for some suggestions and here’s what you said:
#Team Sanders/Fav player
#PitchStreetTeam (no we did not add this one ourselves XD)
Some Pitches are planning on sending their baseballs in bubble mailers or flat rate boxes from the post office. These are just suggestions to give you an idea how to ship them off, but you can do whatever works best for you!
Please include a small note asking FOX to donate the baseballs to the local Boys & Girls club in your packages.
If you are shipping baseballs directly from amazon.com please include a small note with your shipment with the hashtags #KeepHerInTheGame and #RenewPitch & a request to donate the baseballs.
Our first goal is to send the network 500 baseballs obviously the more the merrier but one step at a time, folks. Pitch Street Team is keeping track of the numbers bc #DATA. Please help us to do this by filling out the baseballs form!
From now until February 28th we are asking if you are planning on sending baseballs that you fill out the Baseball PLEDGE form.
Starting March 1st we ask that you track the baseballs that you have actually sent in the Baseball TRACKING form.
Address your baseball packages to:

We’re the ones on the mound right now. US. We throw the balls.
Something I noted about the S2 Matsu announcement picture (that I may or may not be looking too deeply into) is that the boys aren’t wearing their standard hoodies.
…Okay so Ichi probably is, but the others’ outfits have caught my eye. Oso and Kara are wearing hoodies, but they’re not the hoodies. Meanwhile, Choro and Totty have completely new looks. And Jyushi isn’t wearing anything lol but seeing the stuff Choro’s holding up for him, none of them are Jyushi’s regular hoodie either.
In fact, none of their regular hoodies can be seen in the announcement picture (again, with maybe the exception of Ichi). There are various clothes on the racks behind them, but none of them look like the regular Matsu hoodie.
I may be completely wrong and might be looking too deeply into it, so don’t quote me on this, but… Maybe the boys’ default outfits in S2 won’t be their hoodies anymore? Maybe we’re looking at (for some at them, at least) their new default outfits?
I mean, we’ve had photos of the boys changing into different outfits outside of their default hoodies before, and we have so many alternate outfits for them already from official apps, merch, etc. So it probably isn’t anything new… But at the same time, that they’re doing this for the official S2 announcement has got me wondering if it means anything.
Tbh in my opinion, I really like the idea of their default outfits not being their hoodies again - and I also really like the idea of the boys’ default outfits being different from each other! It breaks the monotony of the almost-six same hoodies haha. Also in a way, it could symbolize the boys slowly finding their own identities completely separate from being identical sextuplets - Oso included - and that they’re slowly but surely growing up…?
…But of course, again, I could be wrong and the new outfits here might just be for promotional purposes :P (That or they actually will be new casual outfits for the boys in S2, just not their default ones.) It’s still a nice thought, though.
