Steven Universe is such a breath of fresh air, you guys.
The animation is beautiful and unique. The characters are interesting and complex and diverse of both race, physical-build and sexual orientation. It covers so many real life issues (like mental health, bigotry, abuse, etc.) and never sugar-coats them. It defies gender-norms and stereotypes. It’s score and musical numbers are beautiful (especially the songs sung by Deedee Magno, Estelle, Patti Lupone and AJ Michalka).
Anyways, Rebbeca Sugar and everyone working behind this show is a genius and everyone should watch Steven Universe.
Steven is really going to have to turn inward and face himself. Throughout the show, he’s put everyone else first, and his main goal has been to become the person his family wants him to be. That’s got to shift. He’s got to accept that it’s impossible to fill the shoes of his mother, Rose Quartz. She was always barefoot.
What’s exciting as we get deeper into the show is making him realize that there are the magic Gem powers, but there are powers that people have as human beings to understand themselves and define themselves and make their own choices. It’s an incredible power that we all have, and are often told to ignore or take for granted. Those are the kinds of powers I’m excited to have him learn how to explore.
steven universe episode 1:
steven thinks that eating his favorite ice cream sandwiches is the trick to activating his magical powers
steven universe episode 132:
after sacrificing himself for his friends, falsely claiming that he's responsible for the war crimes seemingly committed by his dead mother, boarding a space ship with the knowledge that he will likely never return home again, going on trial against two powerful alien dictators who want to murder him, getting chased by death drones, teaming up with a band of social outcasts, and watching his friend die violently in a desperate act of goodwill, steven discovers that his tears are the secret to resurrection and travels back to earth through his no-longer-dead friend's hair to reunite with his family
Ok so with these last episodes, to be specific, ‘The Trial’, most of us if not all have come to the conclusion or at least suspicion that Yellow Diamond shattered Pink Diamond and her behavior was obviously giving it away:
There’s something that still doesn’t really fit here…
“I was there. I saw it with my own eye. I watched the leader of the Crystal Gems – Rose Quartz – shatter Pink Diamond!”
Now, it’s not that wise to trust a gem’s perception and vision, when she only has one eye and a ‘gem eye’.
And hear me out here, because this is a bit nuts, what if she can see well but her eye-gem-vision allows her to see everything with a red filter?
And… what two colors look pink like Rose Quartz when mixed?
Red and White
We know gems can shapeshift into almost anything so how about a Diamond shapeshifting into a smaller gem?
What about the common knowledge that only a Diamond can shatter another Diamond?
So what if not Yellow Diamondbut White Diamond?
But that brings a lot more questions…
Why would YD try to cover WD? And why did WD even shatter PD to begin with?
But until more proof, like a Zircon, I rest my case.
I’m still not sure what this mural means but I see Rose holding a diamond and another gem in front of her with her arm lifted. In the past I saw people saying this was YD but looking at her desing and WD mural, I can almost confirm that’s indeed WD.
Honestly that’s all I have until here.
I really NEED to see White Diamond and find out more about her.
