Rebecca Sugar QnA- Volume 1 Finale of the SU Podcast

- long post about Rebecca answering fan questions
- info from the podcast episode “Leading the Way- Rebecca and Steven Sugar”

  • If Rebecca were a gem, she’d be under Blue or Pink Diamond’s court
  • The gem placements of the main characters relate to who they are
    - Pearl (head)- way too inside her head, intellectual
    - Amethyst (chest)- passionate, impulsive, speaks from the heart all the time
    - Garnet (hands)- “hands-on”, active, extremely balanced

  • For every new gem, [the crew] evaluates who they are based on where their gem is placed
  • Amethyst’s favorite soda is Apple Seedra (?)
  • Flourite’s design was inspired by the caterpillar in Alice in Wonderland and Grandmother Willow
  • Pearl’s favorite color is pink
  • Rebecca loves pineapples on pizza
  • Rebecca’s favorite job to do in animation is storyboarding (if it is a board-driven show)
  • Rebecca’s favorite arc in One Piece is the Sogeking Usopp vs. Luffy fight/arc, Usopp is her favorite character
  • Pumpkin doesn’t need to eat but he does sleep

  • When asked if Steven Universe is canonically just a cartoon and if so, if Sardonyx is aware of this, Rebecca replied, “Sardonyx is self-aware. I think Steven Universe is canonically just a cartoon in the canon of real life but within the show, it’s reality. But Sardonyx has this transcendent mind. I think of Sardonyx a little like Psycho Mantis (…) from Metal Gear. She can see outside of what’s going on y’know and that’s something that I feel like Garnet can see beyond the moment into the future and not just into the future but also all of these possible futures so Sardonyx is sort of on this other level where she has that ability but Pearl’s also in there so it’s also obnoxious.”
  • The theory about Garnet’s glasses changing the ratio of red or blue depending on if Ruby or Sapphire’s personality is dominant at the time is NOT TRUE. Garnet isn’t piloted by two people, she is her own person.

  • The zircons are poofed, not shattered. “They are certainly not not in trouble, but they’re not shattered.” -Rebecca
  • The people in the SU Universe have a different relationship towards stories about superheroes due to the gem war
  • On references of the zircons’ designs: Paul Villeco showed Rebecca history about a night club in Paris called Le Monocle, the monocle as this iconic lesbian fashion statement. Other inspirations include: What’s the Truth about Mother Goose, Jughead and Film Film Film
  • The Unfamiliar Familiar is a reference to ‘His Dark Materials’

  • When asked if gems who have their gem over their eye have any sight impairments, Rebecca said, “I think it could affect their depth perception but I don’t know if gems necessarily function the way humans do. I think, if anything, they might even have some sort of enhanced sight (…) like, your gem placement I think has a lot do, like I said, with you as a person. And even Eyeball, I mean, was sort of scrutinizing everything. Then I suppose also other senses could be heightened but that’s very human. I think gems—gems are different. They work a little differently.”
    McKenzie: “So does that mean Jasper has a really good sense of smell?”
    Rebecca: “Oh, that I don’t know. Maybe not. I mean that was sort of just a simple—like hard-nosed thought as a way a person could be.”

  • It is possible for a non-fusion gem to have the same gem-type as a fusion (e.g. a Garnet that is just one gem) It would look different though
  • Rebecca would like to have an OK K.O. crossover.
  • Back when OK K.O. was called Lakewood Plaza Turbo, Rebecca and Ian hoped that to have a crossover called Stewood Plaven Turbiverse, resulting in mushing the 2 shows together. Characters would include Mr. Gar-net (Garnet & Mr. Gars), K-ven (Steven & K.O.), Penid (Pearl & Enid), and Radethyst (Amethyst & Radecles)

Sugar Kisses

Y/N smiled warmly at a regular customer who had entered the bakery with his hand in around his son’s. The little boy looked around with sparkling eyes, taking in every twinkling light and pastry his small eyes saw. His mouth was ajar, a silent wow ringing out between the walls. Then, he saw the display of cupcakes in front of him, encased behind a window. His small hands pressed against the glass, and even though his father scolded him, he refused to remove his hands, clearly not bothered by fingerprints.

Tips on Flirting

1. Make eye contact. Throw small glances and catch the eye of the person you’re interested in. Hold their gaze briefly, then smile and look away.

2. Smile at the person. To be most effective, smile slowly (rather than grinning widely), and crinkle your eyes. That kind of smile is more genuine and appealing.

3. Talk to them. You don’t have to commit to a full conversation but at least say “hello” and acknowledge their existence!

4. Initiate a conversation with them (one step on from point 3). Think of easy ways to get a conversation going. In many ways the topic isn’t so significant. You just want to talk to them, and try and pique their interest. General guidelines are … ask a neutral question; try and find some areas of common interest; gauge their response before showing more interest; and keep things light and impersonal.

5. Make use of body language. Non-verbal cues can say a lot more than the actual words you speak. Some pointers to remember include: maintain an open stance (don’t cross your arms or legs); turn your body toward them; casually touch them (for example, hold their hand to help you balance when you’re getting up from your seat.)

6. Compliment them (but don’t get too personal yet).

7. Keep your interactions brief. Scarcity creates demand. If you’re not always available it makes you more mysterious and more desirable.

She focused on the witch’s lips.

They were chapped by the winter air, smudged imperfect where the rest of her seemed frighteningly flawless. She clung to those lips, because if they were chapped and pretty lips there was a way to win because its owner could only be human. Human, and as prone to chapped lips as anyone else. 

“Are you going to keep staring at me all night?” the witch asked. “Because, you know, if you want to kiss me, you may as well ask. The night is cold and hill sides are boring.”

The girl spluttered and felt her face heat - despite whatever defense she’d thought chapped winter lips might give her. “I don’t want to kiss you! I’m here to slay you.”

The witch flashed her a smile. “And you’re doing a wonderful job, cherie. Maybe you’ll even remember to pick up your weapon at some point.” 

The girl floundered and made a grab for her sword, only for it to fly into the witch’s hand with a waggle of her fingers. 

The witch winked at her. 

The girl clenched her jaw and stuck out a hand. “That’s mine, give it back.”

“So you can kill me? You make a compelling argument.”

The girl flushed - because, well, really, she should have expected that. 

“Why do you want to kill me?” the witch asked. She weighed the sword between her hands, studying it, balancing its sharpness between her palms. 

The girl lunged. 

The witch’s eyes widened in shock, twisted, and they went down in a tangle of limbs. 

The sword clattered a metre or so away on the mountain side. 

The witch lunged for her, next, as she pounced for the blade and they went down again - graceless. 

It was not exactly the type of story that the knights got in the fairy tales. 

They tousled for a beat, two, the cold snow biting at their exposed hands and cheeks before the witch muttered a quick spell. 

The girl gaped, pinked by cold in the snow, limbs frozen. “That’s cheating!”

The witch straightened, splendid and beautiful and just as flushed from the cold, her hair in disarray. Human, human, lovely (no, don’t!), human. 

“You were the one trying to kill me!” The witch snatched up the sword and pressed it, panting, to the girl’s throat. “So tell me why I shouldn’t do the same to you. Who sent you?”

You scan the lines of your textbook again, a shiver slipping through your skin as you hug the only blanket in your house closer around your body. The highlighter in your hand is tucked against your lip, brow furrowing as you try and get your eyes to focus on the words that you were struggling to absorb.  Although your body is attempting to read, it’s like your brain isn’t an active participant in the activity - the distraction of Yoongi’s lateness home too much stress for you to handle. You allow yourself another glance at the clock next to the couch, it’s digits glowing dimly in the darkness of the trailer you called home. 9:57. An exact 4 minutes since you’d last checked. He was usually home hours before this…

You wake up early the next morning, eyes blinking wearily as you struggle to free yourself from the last remaining tendrils of slumber. It’s not a simple task, mostly because you’re still exhausted and all you want to do is fall go back to sleep.

But you can’t. Something woke you up and you need to figure out what it was.

As you begin to come to, so do your senses. A quick sweep around your surroundings lets you know that you’re not in your apartment and the feeling of someone wrapped around you is the only clue you need to figure out that you’re not alone. You turn your head slightly, nose catching the scent of antibacterial soap - a smell that your brain immediately connects to doctors and hospitals.

Hospitals.

The last bit of confusion about your current location fades away as your brain catches up with your senses. You’re with Bucky.

Jealousy (M)

Contains: Smut, mild angst depending on the member (i.e. Suga has some), OT7 x (f) reader

Synopsis: After a long night of partying and you playfully flirting with the bartender, your boyfriend and you finally get back home and hash out your differences.

Seokjin

“Seokjinnie,” You whined after him as he didn’t bother to hold the door open for you upon entering your shared apartment, confused since he was usually such a gentleman. He didn’t even bother to respond to you as he moved quickly to the chair that stood opposite of the fireplace, but not before he grabbed some soju from the fridge. He looked worn out by the way he slumped into the chair, his back relaxing properly against the smooth upholstery. Jin never really liked you talking to other men because of his insecurities of losing you, but tonight was especially hurtful to him. But it’s not like you did anything wrong, all you did was make a semi-sexual joke to the nice bartender who was, for the record, happily married. All you two did was exchange some playful banter, mostly talking about your respective partners, but Jin happened to walk in on the part where you made the sexual joke and his whole demeanor shifted negatively from that point on.

It had been at least five minutes since Jin ignored your address to him when you two walked into the apartment and you just hated seeing him in one of his depressive moods. “Seokjin,” You called out again as you moved from resting the small of your back on the kitchen island to the loveseat that remained next to the seat Jin was currently in. He sulked slightly as he hesitated to turn his face to you, looking at you but never responding. You huffed slightly as your fingers found their way into his hair, twiddling the dark strands between your small fingers, “Baby, I didn’t mean to make you feel this way. I was just talking to him about you and he is married after all. It was harmless. You know you’re the only one I want in life, the only want I ever want for the rest of my life.” Jin looked at your face with a glint of sadness still hanging in his face as he finally used his words to express his feelings for the first time tonight, “It’s just… I don’t want to lose you to someone who might be-” You cut his words short as you place a soft kiss on his lips, your hands still in his hair to deepen the kiss. Jin took this as a sign that you wanted something more tonight than just complaints and sulking and acted accordingly.
