Potential Rocknaldo Foreshadowing?

“I think it’d be like deep in my heart, or like a million tiny crushed up gems, like one crushed up gem coursing through my blood.”

“I was there. I saw it with my own eye. I watched the leader of the Crystal Gems, Rose Quartz, shatter Pink Diamond!”

“This is the Crystal Heart! It’s connected to the most dangerous areas of the temple.”

Does this mean that Pink Diamond’s shards power the Crystal Heart?

Rocknaldo is a great lesson on allyship

Its not the most exciting episode, but it had a really good point that I think is really relevant to our current times. Ronaldo likes and accepts the crystal gems, and just like shitty allies to irl marginalized communities he thinks this means he should get special treatment, or a reward for being so tolerant, or get to be included in their community. And just like a typical shitty ally, he starts talking over the people in that community, believing he knows more than they do about their group and problems, and knows it better.

And then Steven pointed out that, being open and accepting doesnt mean letting yourself be pushed around, and that it’s important to call out people who make you feel bad, even if they are coming to you with ‘good’ intentions. Honestly especially so, because allies *are* important, but not to the point that it causes harm among your community. You shouldn’t tolerate or settle for something that makes you feel bad just because it comes from good intentions.

And while we didnt see inside the pamphlet, I liked that they pointed out one of the best ways to be an ally, which is educating yourself, taking criticism and then using your position of power to educate others so it doesn’t fall on the backs of the group who is marginalized.

Really great episode crewniverse!

So, Dr. Professor Historian Guy is standing next to the mummy’s sarcophagus, explaining something to the gang.

They’re in front of him with rapt attention, Fred standing in-between Daphne and Velma.

They all disappear in the closeup, though – as does the sarcophagus that was so close before it was overlapping his arm.

Cut to Daphne and Velma. They’re only a few inches apart, now that Fred’s miraculously disappeared, too.

Finally, Daphne disappears as well, vanishing from existence… just as Velma planned.

Her dark ritual complete, and the others thrown to the void, nothing can stop her now.

Nothing.

Gresta is another good friend of Alex. A lone pirate captain, even though technically she’s not really a captain. You need a crew to be captain of, which she lacks. She sails the 4 seas in search of stealing treasure from other pirates. Her greed is only matched by her arrogance, which doesn’t make her very tolerable company to have around. Both her and Alex share a love for the sea, and when Alex needs to get from one sea to another, or get the lowdown on some nasty sea creatures, she turns to her pirate pal. Gresta is famous for her signature weapon, The Aqua Blade. A blue tinted cutlass forged from a rare deep sea gem that is near unbreakable. 

And here we have the third in a trio of friends. I wanted Alex to have a friend that was tough, surly and a bit arrogant from time to time. There was no initial design for her character, I literally just pulled this out of my ass. A canine humanoid pirate lass. But I like it, we need a large dominate female character that’s not a villain.
