“su would be sooo much better if rebecca sugar storyboarded more episodes”

rebecca sugar is responsible for most of the show’s most reviled mistakes. from sugilite’s concept and design, to the human zoo + it being portrayed as an utopia, pearls obsession w/ rose and abuse bc of it,  to bismuths concept and imprisonment, to the diamonds sympathetic portrayal…

that last part specifically, she said that she disliked how yellow diamond was written in “message received”, so she took it upon herself to storyboard her and blue diamond in “that will be all”. whats the big difference in those two episodes? the first got huge critical acclaim. yd was shown as the cold, focused, ruthless dictator she is, with a pearl (slave) who is afraid of her. the second showed her as poor hurt and emotionally repressed, as suffering through her role as a dictator leader, on the verge of crying. with a pearl (slave) who happily served her. and blue diamond, the homophobic dictator, as a sobbing heartbroken mess whos WOAH suddenly gay.

sugar’s work on adventure time, tho extremely popular, also had a lot of glaring mistakes. she was responsible for the twist in fionna and cake- it was a fanfic written by the ice king. ok, funny..but the joke is that the ice king is writing 13 year old fionna/genderbent finn romancing him. or in “i remember you”, jokes likw marceline getting hit on by her father figure the ice king, or the looooads of ableism in that episode that tbh, as someone w/ mental illness in my family, made it hard to watch. 

and tho she gets credit for starting bubbline in the show, all the bubbline eps by other boarders wrote them as…getting along, being nice to each other. she wrote them as having a lot of hate and repressed feelings. which creates a pretty bad pattern when u look at the gay relationships she writes in su- the unhealthy mess thats pearls love for rose, aforementioned portrayal of blue diamond… yeaaaa

tl;dr: rebecca sugar has some qualities as a writer, but still creates a lot of awful implications in near everything we’ve seen her do for su and at. she is responsible for most of the shows mistakes

Adventure Time fan art genderbends and favorite characters =P enjoy

thejboy88  asked:

If the cast of Adventure Time were to actually meet their gender-swapped counterparts, like Princess Bubblegum meeting Prince Gumball and Marceline meeting Marshall Lee etc, what are the chances of some sort of romantic feelings emerging between the two sides? After all, now that I think about it, I can't think of anyone who might be as perfectly matched to them as what is basically another version of themselves.

PG: Oh hey, you’re really pretty! What shampoo do you use to take care of those lovely locks?
PB: Oh these? I just use the over-the-counter stuff. Nothing fancy.
PG: Well I’d love to hear about it! How about we get some coffee? I opened a little bakery-slash-cafe downtown and I make the most amazing quiche! How about it?
PB: Hmm, let’s see… that library’s not updated and that one has clumsy database management… Cinnamon Bun is becoming a problem…
PG: Uh, Bonnie? Hello?
PB: Oh, you’re still here?

Marcy: My dad raised me to value honor, respect and to have fun along the way.
Marshall: Well, my dad raised me to be manipulative, scary and to believe anything can be mine as long as I seize it.
Marcy: Simon isn’t like that.
Marshall: Who the heck is Simon?
*Marcy kicks Marshall in the boing-loings*
Marshall: What the hell was that for?!
Marcy: You remind me too much of my ex.

Finn: You’re into swords? I’m into swords too!

Finn: Just got dumped myself.
Fionna: Sorry for that. But hey, you ever wonder whats it like to kiss your genderbent version?
Finn: Heck yeah!

Jake: Uh… I’m taken by this sweet Korean speaking Rainicorn.
Cake: Nuh-uh, you’re not even my type, you look like a doughnut! But hey, wanna trade notes on raising a kid?
Jake: Ooh yeah, that’d be cool.
*Cake reads through Jake’s book*
Cake: This is your relationship advice? No wonder he got dumped!
Jake: Hey, I do my best mang! You only got two episodes and a miniseries so they gotta get to your development quick!
