Following the Red and Yellow in Alola, I had to do Green and Blue as well 8D Blue is excited by all the shopping possibilities, while Green…. isn’t.
And then I needed Pichu in shades sipping a drink so Gold happened. I imagine Crystal would be in the background shouting for him to stop slacking, because they promised Professor Elm to check out the breeding differences in Alola mons, but Gold just brushes her off ‘cause “we’re never gonna get this sun back in Johto ok”.
"I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee."
"What kind of mother do you think I am? Why, do you want a little bit? Because if you're going to drink I'd rather you do it in the house."
"I can't go out. *cough cough* I'm sick."
"God! I am so sorry Regina. Really, I don't know why I did this. I guess it's probably because I've got a big lesbian crush on you! Suck on that! AY-YI-YI-YI-YI-YI!"
"Why should Caesar just get to stomp around like a giant while the rest of us try not to get smashed under his big feet? Brutus is just as cute as Caesar, right? Brutus is just as smart as Caesar, people totally like Brutus just as much as they like Caesar, and when did it become okay for one person to be the boss of everybody because that's not what Rome is about! We should totally just STAB CAESAR!"
"Glenn Coco? Four for you, Glenn Coco! You go, Glenn Coco."
"Oh my God, Karen, you can't just ask people why they're white."
"And I want my pink shirt back! I want my pink shirt back!"
"Can I get you guys anything? Some snacks? A condom? Let me know! Oh, God love ya."
"I know it may look like I was being like a bitch, but that's only because I was acting like a bitch."
"Don't have sex, because you will get pregnant and die! Don't have sex in the missionary position, don't have sex standing up, just don't do it, OK, promise? OK, now everybody take some rubbers."
"Gretchen, stop trying to make fetch happen! It's not going to happen!"
"Half the people in this room are mad at me, and the other half only like me because they think I pushed somebody in front a bus, so that's not good."
"I've got parents calling me on the phone and asking 'did someone get shot?'. I oughta cancel your Spring Fling. Now, I'm not gonna do that because we've already paid the DJ, but don't think I'm not taking this book seriously."
"It's like I have ESPN or something. My breasts can always tell when it's going to rain."
"I wish we could all get along like we used to in middle school. I wish I could bake a cake filled with rainbows and smiles and everyone would eat and be happy..."
I feel so dumb posting this, but like Steven Universe seriously means the entire world to me right now. All the characters are so well rounded flaws and all. There are entire story lines in place that get followed, it has all the body type representation, and shows how the characters show love and affection despite trauma. It goes into everything like that even how they deal with trauma, and not to forget all the respectful and beautiful canon on screen gay representation through Pearl and Ruby/Sapphire. All the stereotypes and tropes we expect also just get crushed to pieces by everyone on a constant episode-by-episode basis, and Steven’s character being a kind hearted loving kid who doesn’t have a single mean bone in his body and isn’t afraid/insulted to be “feminine” is so god-damn refreshing. Then there’s his dad Greg who’s character is also dealing with trauma and loss of his own but loves his son more than the world combined and does the best he can to show it whenever possible… His character and all the background characters are always so wonderfully diverse and developed on their own. They show different types of families and healthy AND unhealthy dynamics and how to deal and/or respond to them too. If that’s not even enough don’t even get me started on Rose’s character and how she talks about life and love and happiness in mankind and the world we live in and I just…
This is the shit I cry over. If anyone tells me “it’s just a cartoon” I want to punch something because it may just be a cartoon to them, but to me it’s so much more than that… It’s an entire world with inspiring promises created by an amazingly talented women and is everything I look up to and helps me push forward. I’m so so so glad this show exists right now and I’m glad I’m around to see it because it’s so beautiful in so many ways and is everything I want to strive for.
