I can show you how to be strong In the real way And I know that we can be strong In the real way And I want to inspire you I want to be your rock And when I talk It lights a fire in you
Can I say that this song foreshadowed what Steven contributes to certain fusions? Garnet is cool and collected, but when she fuses with him, they become a personified sun. Alexandrite is already a fearsome beast of a giant woman, but add Steven to the mix, and Obsidian has fire and lava flowing within them.
You can say that much of that fire is coming from Ruby, but it’s Steven who’s amplifying it to such an extreme, it’s amazing. I just… love this character so damn much…
Steven, we can’t both exist. I’m going to become half of you. And I need you to know that every moment you love being yourself, that’s me, loving you and loving being you. Because you’re going to be something extraordinary. You’re going to be a human being.
