The Doctor Donna

“I just think it’s stupid, that’s all,” I say.

“What do you mean?” he asks, as curious as ever to hear what I’m thinking.

“Well, you fall in love with someone, and then you think it’s going to be forever. But then it’s not.” I pause, waiting for a reaction he doesn’t give. I shrug. “I just think it’s stupid to keep being heartbroken like that.”

“Hm,” he says evasively.

“What?” I ask, curious myself now.

He shrugs too. “I didn’t know that was a thing that happened, like some sort of twisted cycle,” he says quietly. “To me, you’re the first. I thought you would be the last.” he laughs. “And honestly? Even now, I think you’ll be the last.”

Storm in the Room thoughts

I’m about to go to sleep but I wanted to share a few thoughts on Storm in the Room!

I loved it. Easily one of my favorite episodes of the series (maybe even like, top ten). This meeting between Rose and Steven is something people have been thinking and theorizing about since literally episode one, and I just felt like the payoff was so good.

The thing that cements it as great in my book is the last couple of minutes, when the storm starts. First of all, the storm is so visually striking and the animation is stunning!! Rose’s hair looks great, Steven’s expressions and the framing of everything felt totally perfect. I really, really liked the way the colors of the room changed to a darker pallette that was still colorful. Normally depicting storm clouds in cartoons is so dull, because the only thing that changes is the clouds turn gray. For this, we got a beautifully animated and colored scene that definitely sticks out. The visual of Rose in the center of a storm with Steven kneeled down in front of her was really heavy hitting. And I feel like making peace with his role with regard to Rose will help Steven move forward, for sure.

It seems like he has to come to terms with the fact that he will never *actually* know or have a relationship with his mom. But then, the ending really tied it together by showing that despite not having his mom in his life, he still has a *great* support network and a loving family that will ALWAYS be there for him, so he’s never truly alone. Plus oh my gosh it was adorable seeing them all roll in and cheer Steven up, even though they had no idea what had just happened–it was exactly what he needed. And you know what I need? More adorable fluff, slice-of-life type stuff that includes the Gems. Cuz this pizza party is just so cute?? I also need sleep, so I’m gonna head out. Love you guys!

I finally finished the sculpture from class! It was meant to be on natural form, but I was largely inspired by Beauty and the Beast.

On who tf is Rose Quartz.

Are we ever going to know the truth? That episode was basically a feels scape tube so the story can move forward and progress without having a protagonist in a state of stagnation.

BUT, it also pops the question: Are we EVER going to get the truth about Rose? O this ep, Steven calls her a liar, an affirmation that is never fully contradicted in the remaining of the episode, but it’s not exactly validated either, as Steven retracts of what he said. So we still don’t know just how much of a liar Rose was?

In the episode, we are presented with a Steven’s version of Rose, based on what he’s heard of her: Kindness and dorkiness and eternal marvel of earth and living beings on it; but it’s also made clear that we’re NOT seeing Rose Quartz. And the things that weigh on Steven’s mind, the calirification we need on where she stood regarding things like shattering and plotting and lying and deception, are- once again- left unresolved.

This could mean that 1) Rose is a Dumbledore figure and we’re eventually going to get insight on her plans and her mind, either by first hand (a diary or something), second source(someone who knew, like Snape in HP); or someone just being really smart and figuring it out. OR

2) She’s NOT a Dumbledore figure and we’re actually NEVER going to find out  if there is even an ulterior motive to anything she did. We’re only ever going to know her by tainted versions of people who met her.

The past episode’s narrative seems to hint at the second option, Steven experiences something he’s been yearning for, but it doesn’t move “The Rose” plot any forward. And at the end of it, Steven yells at a hologram version of his mother- which is him basically yelling at himself- makes relative peace with the burden placed on his shoulders by her, and leaves that part of him behind in the subconscious (The Room).

Only to have us inmediately introduced to Steven’s “real” family, his present family: Dad and the CG, they remind us that these are the ones that matter, Steven’s look of nostalgic gratitute reinforces us that even though Rose is gone and that weighs on Steven, whatever happened with her doesn’t really matter because she’s gone, there’s nothing anyone can do about it, and sometimes, you just have to let things go and accept what you have and focus on the present, you know, no use on crying over spilled milk.

What the show could be trying to tell us, should this be true, is that shit happens, sometimes we (Steven) can’t get the whole truth about a person or situation, sometimes things will remain blurring and incomplete, and it’ll have to be enough for us (Steven), move past that, and get on living with the doubt. So you’re gonna live with this particular doubt for ever.

Just a thought i had.
