people so salty about andy in the new SU episode chill
Like…problematic people exist, but they’re people too. Andy definitely evoked a “backwards uncle” vibe that the crew was going for. And that made the gems (and the viewers) uncomfortable.
But isnt that what SU has been doing for the majority of its tenure? Helping kids (the real audience here) see Steven interact with a “problem” relative, and not shying away from wanting to know more about him, because even though gem stuff is WAY COOLER than human stuff, he wants to know and understand him because he doesn’t know all that much about it. Like when Steven and Andy are alone and they’re just peeling potatoes and Steven talks to Andy about his human family.
One of my favorite parts (among “why don’t we all get married” and Lapis casually tossing Steven at the plane) was Steven trying to relate the commonalities they have (“I love how we both eat cake!”), but still asking Andy to understand and give their ‘new’ family a chance. I think thats really awesome for kids (and adults) to not just see one perspective, but still holding firm to what you believe.
Tdlr Steven is a beautiful cartoon boy and he is my role model
The song that told us about the GPF banquet but we didn’t know it yet
We all know how Yuri on Ice likes dropping hints of what’s happening in the story through their soundtracks. Stay Close to Me is a fandom favorite to analyze, followed by Tales of a Sleeping Prince, which a lot of people saw similarities between the lyrics and Viktuuri’s story.
The other songs with lyrics all make sense to their own characters - Still Alive talks about Leo de la Iglesia, Shall We Skate references Pichit’s passion and motivation, and JJ’s song is… Well, about himself. Yet, we’re left with a song with lyrics that still made no sense until episode 10.
I’m talking about Intoxicated, Chris’s short program song.
