the joy ride

Sirius takes Muggle Studies starting in third year to annoy his family. At first he plans on only taking it the one year before switching, but it grips his attention and won’t let go. Learning about muggle medical science, electricity, airplanes, the space race… every new topic felt like a new discovery.

It’s at the end of fifth year that the professor offers an extra credit project. Find something muggle that interests you and document your findings. Sirius feels stuck until halfway through summer holiday when he spots the bare bones of a motorcycle about to be hauled off.

At first his focus is figuring out what kind of bike it is (a 1946 Triumph 3T) and how to identify parts, but it quickly turns into a full restoration. The summer was spent mostly with James as they searched junkyards for missing parts, several times one repair leading to something else breaking and Sirius swearing up a storm. By the time school starts again he has 3.5 feet of parchment written front and back.

Two weeks before seventh year starts Sirius finally has it fully restored, crowing with joy as he rides down long stretches of empty road, already planning on what charms he could add to make it run better or make parts last longer.

It’s when Gryffindor wins the quidditch cup that year that sirius begins wondering what it would take to make the thing fly.

“So yeah - there’s aliens looking for me and they want to kill me because they think I’m my mom, which I sort of am. And I wouldn’t be surprised if the three magical ladies that raise me want to kill me to for getting them into this mess and also for taking my mom away. But ya know, family is tricky and we’ve all got issues, right?”

“Do I keep driving or stop the car or pat his head and tell him he’s a good boy I don’t know what to do I didn’t sign up for a late night therapy session jesus lorenzo christ this kid is like 12 and needs therapy yesterday”

I wonder if I’m supposed to do any theorizing about the gems and their Cool Kid™ counterparts? 

The resemblance between Garnet and Buck is pretty straightforward - the glasses, the cool, calm, collected, and quiet demeanor, same lips and nose - Buck even has the crease on his forehead where Garnet’s third eye would be. Thinking about what Buck sad earlier about being judged against his dad, I guess the same could be said for Garnet - she’s being judged against Rose as a leader. 

Pearl and Sour Cream share a likeness, too; they swap hair and skin color, but have comparable hairstyles, similar facial features, and the same eyes. Trying to fit Sour Cream’s story about wanting to be a DJ while his dad wants him to be a fisherman is a little more tricky to fit with Pearl, unless my theory that she was some sort of elite gem back on Homeworld is true; then it would be that she had some sort of higher role to fill, but instead took the road less traveled and decided to rebel.

Aside from similar lips and sort of rounded features, Amethyst and Jenny don’t share too many physical traits, but they do seem to mirror each other in personality. I’ve got no clue how Jenny’s “I’m the bad twin, she’s the good twin” narrative could work for Amethyst, unless it’s foreshadowing us meeting another Amethyst down the line who’s not ‘wrong’ like our Amethyst is? 

And poor Steven has no one, because he is genuinely one of a kind.
