Top 30 Mellow Frames (Part 2)
One thing that’s nice about making your own stuff is that you can do whatever you want with the story. If I want to have it where Pearl is stranded into space, I can do that, and so can you dear reader. This comic also function as a How It Should Have Ended for I am My Mom. This comic shows exactly why Lapis was barned.
I don’t know why I portray Rose Quartz as a woman child with a loose grasp on morality, but I do and I’m happy for it. Pairing her with Greg the neurotic wreck is just a recipe for comedy. If Rose didn’t give up her form, Greg probably would’ve had an aneurism by now.
Gravity Falls is a great show. It might even be better than Steven Universe (it’s definitely better than Steven Universe). I only made 4 Mellow Frames relating to Gravity Falls and there’s a reason for that. It’s already a comedy whose humor matches my own. Parodying it is pointless. So instead I decided to make my own episode of Mabel’s Guide To. Enjoy.
I love narratives that don’t include that much dialogue. Maybe it’s because I’m an introvert, but I prefer action to dialogue. That’s why I’m proud to make an 18 panels comic that only has 3 panels with dialogue. It might just be one joke, but many people seem to think that it’s a funny one. Though there’s some who didn’t get it.
Fun fact, I learned about SU Critical because I noticed rebloggers were tagging this comic as such. This comic does pick apart some of the problems of what I find to be a divisive episode (there’s so much of this episode I loved, and so much I hated). It does seem like everyone’s favorite joke was the “Fuck you too” part. I’ll admit it; I was referencing Coming to America with that joke. I just felt like that joke fit perfectly with what was happening with Lapis and Navy.
Open Book is probably my favorite filler episode of SU, so I had fun parodying it. The premise is simple; what if Steven didn’t know what Cloud Connie wanted him to say. Corruption of Steven ensues.
You know, this comic could be considered canon. You have no proof that this didn’t happen.
Sometimes all you need is one out of context line to make a comic. This is one of those comics.
I love making Priyanka a dumb ass. Honestly, I prefer her being dumb than how she was portrayed in Fusion Cuisine (the episode, not the Mellow Frames). This comic is actually a couple of firsts for the Mellow Frames canon. It’s the first where I used Photoshop to change pictures (it’s very subtle, you probably can’t notice it). It’s the first and so far only that has been talked about on the Bubble Buddies Podcast. It’s also the first in what could be considered SU Abridged Comics. It’s where I made an in depth parody of an episode that just came out. That’s pretty much been the format for SU Mellow Frames more or less since. One last note about this comic is that I’m surprised that no one called me out on the agendered joke. I think people did get that the joke wasn’t at the expense of agendered people, but at Priyanka for being an idiot. People on Tumblr don’t get as easily offended as people think.
Speaking of Tumblr not getting easily offended, we got this comic.I don’t know how I came up with this messed up idea. I don’t know how I decided to write Rose this way (where she is a woman child that is slightly blind to morality). I just did. Here’s the thing though, this is actually the first Mellow Frames. What a way to start.
