From Star vs. the Forces of Evil - Just Friends.

It is weird seeing animated choreography to a song you wrote. It’s like, they’re dancing, but someone had to draw them dancing, so a poor artist in South Korea had to listen to this ridiculous song a million times to get the timing right, and then that poor artist got into his/her car at the end of the day and spontaneously burst into “be juuuuuuuust frieeeeeeends” as he/she pulled out of the RDK parking lot, and was like DAMMIT.

Anyway. @zachsleepshere saw me in the Star offices one day, and was like “Brian, we’re bringing Love Sentence back. They’re gonna sing out of a toothbrush.” 

“What?” 

“You know, those toothbrushes that have songs coming out of them so kids will brush their teeth.” 

“Right …. wait, what?”

AND THE REST IS HISTORY.

I wish I had a video of Nick Lachey singing this in the studio. That guy’s fun.

THIS POST IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY: SEDDM - Trying to comfort the fandom and himself at the same time.

Does this pic hurt you? GOOD. It should. It means that the characters are well written and their suffering is your suffering as well.

Should you get too worried about this pic? NO. I don’t know how the season is going to end, I don’t know if there’s going to be some sort of resolution to this Star-Marco “conflict”, or if it’s going to happen in season 3 (but it’s obviously going to happen, eventually, because thank god writing is not real life). What I do know is that, despite the title and the theme of the episode, Star and Marco aren’t “just friends”, they’re BEST friends, who are always going to do everything they can to help and care for eachother.

THIS MARCO MOTHER***ER HERE interrupts (again) a makeout session to make sure that his best friend is ok and isn’t feeling left out

AND REFUSES TO GO BACK TO HOT LIPS ON LIPS ACTION UNTIL HE TELLS STAR HOW MUCH HE APPRECIATES HER

AND THIS OTHER MOTHER***ER HERE, who is dying inside, in six episodes has grown enough to go from “Let me use a forbidden spell to spy on Marco’s date” to “My heart is on fire but Marco is happy and that’s ok”

And I don’t know what’s going to happen in Face the Music, and this scene from Starcrushed’s promo might very easily be out of context, BUT IT STILL IS THE ESSENCE OF MARCO’S AND STAR’S FRIENDSHIP, COMMUNICATING.


So: are things going to get worse? Probably. Is Star going to screw up something? Possibly. Is the season going to end on a sad cliffhanger, without solving anything and just getting worse and worse? Sounds unlikely to me but it might be.
Are Marco and Star really going to be torn apart? Not in a million episodes.


Disclaimer: as usual, I can’t be 100% about anything I say. What I know is that the show is amazingly consistent with its characters, and that eventually happiness is going to be back for Star and for us viewers.

GUYS

WE HAVE

NOT ONE

NOT TWO

BUT THREE SAME-SEX COUPLES (and possibly even more?? Genders of the couples on the top right of the first picture and the bottom right of the second are a little ambiguous)

I don’t know how this got past Disney or why they allowed it (I mean Gravity Falls couldn’t even show a couple on screen, let alone kissing) BUT YES IT’S BEAUTIFUL

And look at all the rest of that diversity!!! Race, size, there’s even what looks like an elderly couple:

You go Daron Nefcy you go

Well I never thought that I could have suffered from a Starco hug…
But let’s try not to focus on Star’s reaction, the reaction of a girl who is dying inside and who knows that she’d do anything for her bestie, but who right now can’t enjoy the intimacy they always shared. Let’s… let’s focus on Marco, who put “Making sure that Star is ok and telling her that she’s the best of friends” above “Making out with Jackie”.
