I’VE BEEN HOLDING THIS THEORY SINCE MONSTER REUNION CAME OUT LIKE.. 8 MONTHS AGO, SO PLEASE PARDON ME IF I GET TO HYPED.
Ok so first of all let’s see what got ton of gems corrupted…
Centi tells Stevo that everyone was running away from something, and after that, it was all noise… “You heard something. From the sky, a sound. A song? And then…”
And this is also further handled on “Same Old World” where Lapis shows that everyone was running in a hurry out of the earth and because of that they leaved her on earth trapped in the mirror.
That looks like a light, sure, a blinding light, but what got me is when Centipeedle CLEARLY talks about SOUND and not LIGHT.
In the same episode, Garnet talks about how “It’s sort of like if MC Bear-Bear didn’t tear the fabric of his arm, but the fabric of his mind.”, so the nuke (let’s call it like that so is easier kie?) wasn’t spreading a kind of virus or something that messes with their body structure, aka, their light.
Now, back to an episode, season 1B, first Stevenbomb, “The message”.
What’s so important about it? I think is a lil picky, but re-watching season one it really got my attention the way Amethyst reacted to The Wailing Stone
At first it was kind of just covering her ears and being a lil moody, but time passed and there was a point where she was getting desperate.
(weirdly, Garnet and Pearl seems kind of okay, but that may be because they are in general more resistant, i think)
And you see, for the ones who don’t know, sound is basically waves that travel through matter, a constant and loud sound can get to the point of physically hurting you.
Actually, one of the discovering that Nikola Tesla did was that, with vibrations, you could make something shake, and if it was constant and strong enough, it would break, it’s exactly what earthquakes do! and guess what, sound is, in fact, vibrations!.
Now, the most common experiment about this is putting some sort of glass and turning the volume slowly as loud as possible, after a moment the vibrations would be so much that it basically shatters.
What does this has to do with gem corruption? as I said before, sound needs MATTER to “travel around”, so OF COURSE they couldn’t make the bomb attack from space as a sound!, thats where the light makes the job.
You see, light is also waves that travel around, thing is, light doesn’t need a medium to travel, so Homeworld basically found a way to make a light explosion, turn it into sound, and attempt to shatter the gems in that way.
But how did they turned the light into sound? Waving stones.
You see, in Gem Hunt we get a pretty short view of what is possibly a HUGE waving stone.
Homeworld probably put them all around the world so they would make the sound travel without problem, the original waving stones where probably little and used to send messages from homeworld/space to earth (Like Lapis did),but then they found out that they could use it for shattering gems, their plan was basically use “vibrations to break glass” but in a massive way.
So, why didn’t the gems shattered? they… kind of did! Corruption is basically their “light forms” shattered, its like the noise didn’t exactly broke the gem, but broke the coding of the gem, corrupted it, like when someone messes with the data of a video game and it gets all glitchy! they shattered their data, their “brains”.
Of course, they didn’t literally SHATTERED them, but having in mind that Homeworld made the cluster experiments with Crystal Gems (As Garnet says explicitly) then it was probably a way to prove their weapons again. They basically used their enemies, the rebels, as lab-rats, to see if their massive weapon would work, just like the cluster.
Homeworld pretty much tortured the gems with a screeching, loud and constant sound long enough to shatter their light forms.
How to make a Disney Channel show (aka, Disney is obsessed with using the same set of characters over and over again)
Many people feel the need to have a really smart character. It’s important that the girls look flawless, but the guys should look like as much of a geek as possible.
To make the above character look smarter, you can add a dumb character. Make sure to give them a very confused facial expression as often as possible, and let them ask questions that should be obvious for someone their age.
You’ll always need a guy who’s character relies for about 50 % on their looks. Why else would anyone watch the show?
To match the hot guys, you’ll need a girl who is so flawless, you begin to feel like they can’t possibly be real.
The audience needs someone to laugh at, right? This is where you add either a character who is incapable of understanding the word “no” or a character who is just considered a “loser” by most people. And try not to give them too much character development.
But to keep the smart person from seeming boring, we need the rebel friends who doesn’t care about grades, and who always get’s their friend in trouble. But don’t worry, you can always fix it up with a sappy apologizing scene at the end.
There has to be some kind of official antagonist. My suggestion, is you go with Matteus Ward, or at least someone who looks like him. Or you can go with a stereotypical blonde girl.
Every show needs grownups. Keep them there for, comic relief, embaressing the kids, being protective, giving deep motivational speeches and cry upon realizing that their kid’s are growing up.
He’s actually the butler
Not a parents. He’s their sensei.
Not a parent. He’s an uncle.
Add a couple of cute kids and animals
Or if everything fails, just throw in a bunch of boyfriends and girlfriends that we’re all gonna forget anyway.
If they are purposefully recreating the social phenomenon surrounding The Final Problem of 1893, that means very soon, I would guess within a couple weeks, the BBC is going to announce Sherlock will not be renewed for a fifth series. The only thing Holmes fans are holding on to is the idea that there might be a fifth series to clear all the loose ends. Everyone has given up on the idea of The Lost Special. The BBC is going to take away hope of a fifth series, too, and they’re going to do it soon.
Right now the dedicated Holmes fan base is complaining about many things, but it’s not mourning.
We know “The Empty House” was the story written after Sherlock’s death in The Final Problem and the hiatus, but keep in mind “The Hound of the Baskervilles” – the story Holmes is arguably most recognized for – came out between “The Final Problem” and “The Empty House”. It could do this because Doyle claimed “Baskerville” to be set years in the past, so it didn’t matter that he’d killed Holmes in The Final Problem. The people rejoiced, and overnight thousands of fans subscribed to the paper, back on the Sherlock Holmes bandwagon.
Out of nowhere Doyle gave Sherlock fans the story of a lifetime. When all hope was lost, Holmes revived. The crowd went wild. A legend was resurrected.
So if the BBC announces very soon it will not renew Sherlock for series 5 and Gatiss comes out to say, “Yeah, we had a good run, but we left it in a great spot. This is for the best. We will not continue writing.” – keep everything you know about Doyle’s history in mind and remember The Final Problem.
“Human experimentation from the perspective of lab rats”
besides me being a fashion bombshell, even in the midst of wwii, the jacket was nice and warm and full of pockets. which is always a nice thing when you have to literally carry everything you need with you everywhere you go.
but on top of that, i grew up with tiny pre-human-lab-rat steve. among a very long list of medical issues which fueled his must-punch-everything attitude, steve was colorblind. (in a very typically steve move, he decided to become an artist, despite not being able to see half the colors out there.)
the modern term for what he was is ‘protanopia’ which is a type of red-green colorblindness which meant his ability to see the color red was not so great. pretty much everything in the red spectrum got toned down to taupes and greys, and yellows and greens were kinda muted. but his ability to see the color blue was basically unimpaired, so blue things stood out in his field of vision. back in the day, i wore a lot of blue because it was easier for steve to spot, and somewhere along the line it just kinda became my favorite color, and i tended to pick blue clothes out of habit.
these days steve’s favorite color is red, just for the novelty of being able to see it.
