Lars being killed, then resurrected and turned into the same magical being that lion is has been hinted at since the very first episode of Steven Universe. It’s been in front of our eyes this whole time.
Lets first look at the Lyrics for cookie cat and analyze it:
Lars attitude completely changed once he was on the ship, and on homeworld. From admitting his cowardly ways, to standing up for himself, protecting his friends, and showing his appreciation for everything he didn’t appreciate before. “Frozen treat with an all new taste” symbolizing his cold attitude before, with who he is now.
“He left his family behind”, yes both Steven and Lars did leave their families behind. But Lars didn’t willingly leave his family behind like Steven did. Steven left his family behind to protect them. Steven probably feels a great satisfaction knowing that he’s not the cause for his family’s danger anymore. Lars probably feels more torn, and upset by leaving his family behind. A family he didn’t appreciate before. Also Lars seems to feel guilt for leaving Sadie behind when he could have protected her. So I feel this applies more to Lars then steven.
Now lets look at the first ever scene in the series:
the scene starts off with Steven yelling no! And his dramatic reaction to the loss of his beloved Cookie Cat ice cream.
then proceeds to Steven being in denial claiming that it “has to be a dream”. So why so dramatic over ice cream? Because it’s not about ice cream. The scene symbolizes lars’s death in the recent episode off colors.
Steven calls out for Lars.
holds him, and continues to mourn for the loss of his Cookie Cat. So why hold Lars? Someone who obviously is busy stocking, and clearly rejects his affections. It’s because Steven holding him tightly hints at the recent events that just unfolded in the previous released episode.
Then the next frame Lars addresses that cookie cats have been replaced with Lion lickers. I believe this hints at Lars (Cookie Cat) changing into the same magical being that lion is (being represented as Lion Lickers)
I’d like to point out in the next frame that Lars describes cookie cats as “wimpy” which is particularly odd that he chose that adjective to describe cookie cats. He could have said stupid, lame, gross, etc. any typical insult. He chose “wimpy” how does Lars see himself? Lars does not view himself in very positive ways. He does see himself as a coward, scared, everything that a wimp is.
Lars continues to say “why don’t you make some with your “magic belly button”. Which I also find odd to some extent. Being that we needed to address Steven, and his gem origin at some point in the episode, but why would Lars address it in that way? Why is Lars the first to address Steven’s gem, and gem abilities? Not someone else? Someone with better understanding of gems? I might be reading a little bit into this, but I think this is foreshadowing Steven healing Lars much like Lars is claiming that Steven heals Cookie Cat, and bring cookie cat back with his “magic belly button”. Much like Steven does with Lars. Reviving Lars after he died with his magical healing powers.
Next Steven describes cookie cat as having a crunchy exterior, which sounds like who? Lars pretends to be tough, and have a rough exterior to impress people like the cool kids. Which also goes into his style. His tough-looking graphic tees, his edgy haircut, even his gauges. I believe he does all of this to make him look tough. So that he can “fit in” and look cool to the cool kids.
Then Steven describes cookie cat have a creamy inside. Much like Lars who plays it off like he’s this cool tough guy, but inside he’s this soft, pampered kid with a loving family, who loves to bake. Who has genuine feelings that he tries to hide for people. Who cares, and has more bottled up emotions than anyone could have figured.
Then Steven brings it back to mourning of his cookie cat. Claiming that cookie cat was “too good for this world”. Why so much emphasis on the loss of cookie cat? Why so dramatic? Why make it seem so literal for the death of cookie cat? It’s because cookie cat is really just Lars.
Also id like to point out cookie cats mixed colored eyes. Something about that reminds me of Lars’s scar over his eye.
So if I remember well this was released at a comiccon. Its supposed to illustrate the new powers Ladybug is going to have. The thing is that it reminded me of something and couldnt grab what it was. Then it hit me like wait… There’s five powers… And 5 side miraculous… WAIT A MINUTE-
I kind of thought that there might be more into it so I looked well at what could be hidden in the picture and thats where I stopped to look at Pearl of Heart : Cure the akumatized So I was like wait… Isnt that Ladybug curent power?! So I kind of decided again to think even more about it! I kind of placed the miraculous of the butterfly in front of the pearl of heart power. And then I just realized something.
All the Miraculous could fit with the name of the powers or the meaning of the pearl or stone. -Pearl of the Sea: The turtle lives in the sea -Pearl of the Mysteries: The fox is a tricky animal that is well known to represent something mysterious. -Stone of the Sun: It says flying power and if I remember well a Bee can fly :) -Stone of the Moon: For the Peacock Im actually not sure but you know it might be according to the powers???
So if Im right I think that when Ladybug will be able to use these powers, she will be able to counter all the miraculouses…
So yeah. Holy crap if Im right Ladybug is gonna become hella OP.
There has been a lot of hate (mostly deserved) heaped on Chloe Bourgeois by the ML fandom, as well as theories of a redemption arc that she may go through to become the Bee Miraculous holder. Chloe is one of my favorite characters. Most people see the nasty personality she shows to the majority of Paris and immediately hate her. Her peers, the fans, even the main characters usually treat her with disdain. Again, mostly deserved.
However, there is a lot more beneath the surface of Chloe’s world that we don’t see. How much do we know about her home life? We’ve seen how miserable Adrien is. Chloe also doesn’t seem to have her mother, Adrien and Sabrina are her only friends and even though her father dotes on her, does she really have a healthy father/daughter relationship with him?
I’ve mentioned before (in this post) that I believe Adrien is friends with Chloe because he saw glimpses of humanity in her and wanted to help her become a better person. Things like…
In “Darkblade” (Le Chevalier Noir):
Chloe is being her usual nasty self and an akuma attacks
Sabrina grabs Chloe for protection
Chloe puts her arm protectively around Sabrina
Is this the first glimpse we get of our budding bee?
Instead of accepting Mylene as a scapegoat, she’s honest and blames an “invisible force” for pulling her hair
She risked the ridicule of the class to do this
I dunno it was like a unicorn or leprechaun or some shit
And on to the legendaries. In GSC (and HG/SS), supposedly these critters were made as the result of Ho-oh bringing 3 Pokemon who died when the silver shrine burned down.
A popular fan theory is/was that the three that died were the original Eeveelutions (Vaporeon to Suicune, Jolteon to Raikou, and Flareon to Entei). And there was some game info that backs this up- I mean, not only do each of them share a single element type, but they share the same hidden abilities as well! Same relative stat distro (Jolteon and Raikou have high SP Atk and Speed). And to top it all off? The kimono girls in the games who frequent the shrines, often battle using the Eevee line, thus the three dying in fire? Not implausible.
I always thought it was a little weird when Chat did that.
But now Thomas went and made it significant.
One of my favorite ML comics by @ceejles was the one where Marinette thinks that Adrien looks a bit familiar and tries kissing him to identify him, like it would match the kiss she shared with Chat in the Dark Cupid episode.
It is confirmed that we are going to see a lot of MarixChat in the upcoming Season 2.
Which is great. but here is the thing.
What if that episode ends up being the reveal?
Adrien finding out first that Marinette is Ladybug because they smell like croissants? (or choco chip cookies either way bakery stuff)
Then he constantly visits her as Chat Noir until he’s certain???
