people should calm down, in a month when the MMO vacationers have finished the story quest and go back to wow or w/e the queues will be gone and data centers aren’t going to crash or w/e else people are raging about
Trigger really went all out on this. Everything was so beautiful from the story to the animation to the acting and the soundtrack. I got fucking goosebumps when everyone started boosting Akko and Diana one by one until the climax at the combined Shiny Arc using the Grand Triskelion. Even fucking Andrew managed to redeem himself as an ally on the non-magical side of things. The way everything wrapped up was just so well-executed, although I wish there could have been a bit more resolution for Croix and Chariot. Akko finally being able to achieve flight in the end put the fucking cherry on the cake.
I really wanna congratulate the staff for all this. I haven’t enjoyed an anime like this in a fucking long time. One of the best gems in the season. I really hope there will be a season 2 because there is more to be resolved on Croix and Chariot’s part and we need a deeper look at the more minor characters. I will be rewatching the entire thing upon its Netflix release.
Thank you, Trigger. Thank you so, so much for bringing LWA into this world.
honestly every time one of my relatives tells me I’ll change my mind about having children when I’m older they should have to pay me $20 so I can actually afford to take care of these kids they want me to have so damn badly
poll: should i keep trying to grow my hair out or get an undercut?
also should i get a septum piercing
i love septum piercings but there is like no space in between my septum and upper lip when i smile a lot of the time so like….. it would probably hang over my lip when i smile which would probably look bad
Most of us guessed that Navy would end up betraying everyone by the end of the episode.
I don’t think most of us expected that having her go from this:
would be really good for Lapis’ mental health.
And despite certain people’s fears about certain story boarders… this was actually very much in character for her. I think it’s pretty safe to assume that Lapis has always been cynical, even in her pre mirror days. After she escaped she went from cynical to detached and apathetic. Not an unexpected defense mechanism for someone who was trapped in an inanimate object for 6,000 years. But she has made progress. She trusts Steven and Peridot. Enough not only to express her concerns, but to essentially make a confession.
Life on Earth is really confusing. It took me a long time to get use to it. I’m still getting use to it.
Given everything that’s happened to her on Earth, it’s only natural that she’s having a hard time adjusting. But she’s just confessed her biggest insecurity: she knows she’s having a hard time dealing with what she’s been through, while having to get use to to living a normal life on the planet where her greatest traumas happened. Before the rebellion she would have done her job and left for the next planet, Earth having been a distant memory by this time. But now she can never leave. Earth has to become home.
She wants to move on, but feels guilty about how difficult actually doing that is.
So here comes this I-Insta-Love-All-Things-Earth ruby, who seems freakishly well adjusted from the moment she crashes face first into the planet. Never mind that she was lied to not once, but twice, by the crystal gems. Never mind that she was blasted out into space and abandoned while they stole her ship. All is instantly forgiven and she just wants to be a part of their happy family.
Worse yet? The people Lapis cares most about just buy it. They go right along with it as though Navy’s behavior is perfectly normal. It took time for Lapis to even begin to be okay with the idea of living in Earth and forgiving the crystal gems- she’s still working on it, and it’s painful. She’s worked so hard for every inch of progress she’s made, and here’s someone who’s seemingly able to move on the same day they got to Earth.
I just don’t get it. Why is it so easy for her when it was so hard for me?
So when the perfectly well adjusted Navy turned out to be a gleeful sociopath gleefully hell bent on revenge, everything fell into place.
Navy’s sudden but inevitable betrayal was the best thing to happen for Lapis’ mental health to date.
So what’s the take away from this? 1) People react differently to trauma. 2) Just because someone seems well adjusted doesn’t mean they are. 3) It’s okay to take a long time to heal from your traumas. It’s okay for it to be a constant work in progress. It’s okay not to be okay.
And at the end of the day, that realization can almost feel like happiness.
