riding drills

Well, that was a long time coming, both in-universe and out.  I’m sorry I let my seasonal depression kick me in the ass for so long!  That was a very good episode, though–we finally got Amethyst (and Steven!) to do some much-needed venting.  I wonder where they’ll go from here.  Steven vs Amethyst comes in at my new #6 for Season 3 (between Too Short to Ride and Gem Drill) and my new #15 overall (between Steven’s Birthday and The Test).

Next up is an episode people have been hyping to me for a while, now–I replaced its filename with keyboard smashing to prevent me knowing its name ahead of time, I’ve picked up that it’s a double-length episode rather than a two-parter like I thought (which makes it being the “hundredth episode“ kind of silly–this is the 98th episode, even if it takes up the 99th and 100th production slots).  I’ll be starting this episode Monday night, but it will probably take me two days due to its length.
