seriously explosions

Can we just talk about how fucking great the writing on this show is?

Okay, this one requires a little explaination.

At this point in the series, we’ve seen people shrug off injuries like they were nothing. Steven and the Gems (especially the Gems) tank a HECK load of hits. Just watch Pearl v Sugilite (Coach Steven), Pearlbot v Peribot (Back to the Barn), the Gems v the waterclones (Ocean Gem), Garnet v Jasper (Jailbreak), Stevonnie v Jasper (Crack the Whip), or any other fight scene you can think of. 

Now, the Off Colors (+ Lars and Steven) v Robonoids isn’t even that impressive of a fight. It’s fucking tense, sure, but there’s mostly just a whole lotta hiding. 

Until this moment.

Lars is terrified, but he gathers his courage and attacks one of the robonoids head-on. He leaps on top of it, clinging onto it for dear life as it tries to throw him off.

Then we get a bunch of this fuckery.

And HERE, in THIS exact moment, is where things go south. 

But the thing is, we don’t realise it yet. We as viewers are so absorbed in cheering for Lars, we don’t even THINK about the consequences this could have for him.

Now, another thing about Steven Universe is that things explode. And when they do, they explode impressively and they explode beautifully.

(from Serious Steven)

So when comparing those shots to this shot of the Robonoid exploding…

…this explosion is extremely underwhelming. 

Combined with the fact that we’ve never seen a character get seriously hurt in explosions before, we don’t see this as a threat. We are not worried in this moment because Lars just beat this fucker! We are relieved, we are happy, we are ready to start celebrating. Meaning that seeing this…

…over the sound of a flatline…

…is jarring as all hell, because it immediately tells us celebrating viewers that something is WRONG.

And Steven knows it.

The reaction of the Off Colors here immediately becomes dissonant and strange. After all, these gems don’t know about human deaths. Lars hasn’t poofed, so he’s fine…

…right?

no.

no he’s not.

he is not fine.

he’s dead.

And that’s the kicker. 

Steven Universe has been running for four seasons, and NOBODY HAS EVER DIED ON SCREEN BEFORE NOW!

We aren’t expecting it! We have gotten so used to death not being a real threat in this show because surely the Crewniverse wouldn’t dare kill off a main character that we’ve stopped factoring it in as something that could happen. 

Even the Off Colors are realizing it now. Even Paddy realizes it.

One of Steven’s best friends just died. For real. On screen. In a fight we would have written off as underwhelming if not for this moment.

What the fuck, Rebecca.

Ok but really, one thing I have yet to see is a non-irradiated junkrat who ends up still taking his love for explosives seriously and ends up becoming at least a part time demolitions expert. And maybe owns a mechanical shop, if his love of tinkering with things speaks for anything. Then there’s big bad biker Mako, referred to as Roadhog not only for his status within his gang, but also for his tenancy to scare the shit out of anyone who has to share the road with him. Well, turns out quite a lot of the members of Roadhog’s gang go to Junkrats shop when their bikes need work. Mako figures if they can trust this mechanic, he must be trustworthy, so he gives him the time of day when he needs work done. To say the least, Junkrat is not what he expects, but in a good way. They click after the first-time they meet, bonding over a love of bikes and a little destructive fun. Once Roadhog finds out Junkrat owns and rides a bike too, they start riding together all the time, and junkrat starts taking him along with him when he gets called to level a structure. They have fun doing wild shit together, grow close enough to trust each other with their troubles (maybe mako had a tragic backstory, how Junkrat lost his limbs, etc.) fall in love and raise hell as the baddest couple you’ve ever seen. The biker gang throws them this whole big ass party when the two get engaged. Civilians are terrified. Junkrat loves it. (Bonus points if it later comes to light that the gang totally messed with Roadhog’s bike and forcing him to get it fixed as a way of getting him and Junkrat together)

Please consider: Force Sensitive Han Solo. Jedi Han Solo. Snarky, sassy, like-I-give-a-fuck Han Solo who was raised as a Jedi but ran away because they sensed him getting too attached. Han Solo talking shit about the Force because painful memories. Bonus points: omega!Jedi!Han getting force-pregnant bc is hella attached to Leia and the universe hates him almost as much as it hates Obi-Wan. EXTRA BONUS POINTS: Hella attached to Luke as well and then FORCE TWINS REY AND BEN

Hmmmm do you mean “ran away because he Had A Bad Feeling About This but just assumed it was that he was about to get shipped off to the AgriCorp early” Initiate Solo? Though lbr Han knows enough to change his name, it was probably something ENTIRELY different back then. 

The hole that Obi-Wan will stare in his head when they re-meet will be EPIC and probably also sad considering how fast he’s gonna die but yeah. 

Also OBI-WAN NO DON’T LEAVE HAN IN CHARGE OF TRAINING LUKE UNTIL HE CAN GET TO YODA THERE HAS LITERALLY NEVER BEEN A WORSE IDEA EVER

*several explosions later …* 

Seriously though lbr, Han wouldn’t even make it through the first movie before getting Force-pregnant by those two, he would literally be running around Hoth with either a baby belly or a baby CARRIER. There would be no second Death Star. Hell, there would be no second MOVIE: Vader would find out he had grandchildren and immediately decide the Dark Side was for losers, chuck Palpatine down a power core, and give the Empire to Leia to do with as she would because POWER OF GRANDBABY VISITATION RIGHTS. \o/
