A proud #ActuallyAutistic and thus Autistic rights supporter who is interested in humanities, science, and popular culture. I don't post much, but I do have ideas of what I will post in the future, like my palaeontology themed series Palae-oh-no: tyrannotitan333.deviantart.com…
Interests
Well, that ended sooner than I expected. For some reason after Season 1 they cut the seasons in half. Now, let's see my reactions to Season 3 episodes (amidst all of these leaks)

  • Super Watermelon Island: Wait, we just saw a massacre on screen. They're watermelons, but still. Also there was a brief moment where Lapis and Jasper's unconscious bodies weren't in the shot with the Crystal Gems, even if they were supposed to be there. Also speaking of those two, Jasper falls into the cracking Earth... I really wonder what they're going to do there (maybe she will appear in Gem Drill - hey I know my reactions are gonna be released at the same time, but still I like to do things one episode at a time :P ). But yeah the giant fight was pretty cool (even if it was leaked in February), the most interesting part seemed to be what actually was Lapis and Jasper putting aside their hate towards each other to fight the Crystal Gems. One thing I've also seen at least one person mention was how Alexandrite actually tried to deescalate the confrontation before having to resort to combat, looks like the Crystal Gems may be learning some stuff from Steven (and the fact that they seem comfortable about Peridot after the Yellow Diamond ordeal also kind of shows that they trust her more, even if they didn't really heed her warnings of the Cluster at first). They sure were quick to get to the island however, as was that fusion dance (TBH I wonder if it was a little too fast, though the former was kinda comical). On another note, the Watermelon stuff was weird, Steven somehow can possess them (seriously actually seeing it happen to one going about their business was... something), and now we have a strong diversity of Watermelons that are equivalent to different animals. What kind of selective breeding does it take to create Watermelon chickens? Also I know she didn't have a real role in this episode but Peridot was great as usual, her single-mindedness is something I actually relate to a lot and she had some of the best lines, like now I'm really interested to know even more about her relationship with Jasper besides what little we saw in Jailbreak. Also heh, she's actually trying to hammer in the whole "you're rebels" thing by encouraging Steven to find a way to help the Crystal Gems. Oh yeah also fuck, the quakes were from the Cluster after all, time to watch Gem Drill...
  • Gem Drill: So it's time to destroy the Cluster... wait, no, talk to it? That was... unexpected. Actually, no, I'll admit that it maybe isn't so unexpected. I kind of had a feeling that maybe there would be some sort of dilemma where Steven might feel like he's unable to destroy the Cluster because he can't bring himself to kill it, but with his powers he was actually able to communicate with it and actually find another solution. I have to admit, cynical me did take a bit to come to terms with it, but it does actually make a lot of sense with the show's philosophy. Though I guess I have to wonder how gem shards can bubble like whole gems, that might be the part that feels kind of weird (though I guess the Cluster is kind of an entity in itself, so maybe that's how it has the power to do that). However, cynical me returns to say that the Cluster is still there, so if Yellow Diamond realised this she could maybe find some way to unbubble it and then the shards would end up feeling like they have to form again. So, Cluster aside, the episode was very tense, especially when they were under attack from the mutants and were struggling to drill. Though I wonder what the behind the scenes discussion on the whole "can't fit everyone into the drill" was like. Also Peridot really teased some more Homeworld stuff right there, huh (and "billions of other lifeforms that matter far far less to me," ROFL)? I guess now the big question is where the show will specifically go now, all I can think is that we're going to be hearing from Lapis very soon. Also Steven's comment about the gem mutants makes me wonder if we will get a resolution to that plotline, maybe in a way that's similar to what happened with the Cluster. But yeah, pretty good episode, even if a lot of it was quite surprising.
  • Same Old World: Hmm, I wonder where the Crystal Gems are at during all of this? I really hope we're not going in for a repeat of what happened in Island Adventure. Anyway... that was interesting, that's for sure. First of all, wow Steven and Lapis' first meeting actually got meta! Like, they actually acknowledged that they only seem to ever meet during really bad situations. Peridot was fun as always, I mean she actually made a toilet joke work when I usually cringe at that sort of stuff. With Lapis and how she talked about trapping Japser in Malachite, a part of me wonders if I heard any guilt through her (or maybe it's fear)? Oh, also nice callback to no prob Bob there, ready Freddy. Lapis learning about the world was funny, Steven of course was innocently explaining everything while Lapis, being completely alien to Earth things, was wondering what on Earth he was talking about. It's also kind of sweet that she did seem to have some fascination with certain things like seasons changing, though. The flashback was certainly surprising, Lapis getting trapped was all a mishap apparently. I wonder why nobody recognised who she was and why she was assumed to be a Crystal Gem (and she got smashed in the panic of Homeworld leaving Earth)? She seems to still have a lot of secrets... Also her saying there was no hope of stopping the rebellion suggests she still feels affiliated with Homeworld and believes in Homeworld's side of the war (for now at least, a part of me wonders if she has any resentment for all of these mistakes they made as well), even if she believes she will be punished for her actions towards Jasper. I also wonder if Lapis' resentment towards the Crystal Gems is still primarily "you knew I was in there" and being on opposing sides, or if there's other factors that we still don't know? That flash of light at the end with that transition to Pearl was interesting, because the Diamonds' theme played (Blue and Yellow essentially have the same theme, at least at the beginning, Yellow's changes up). I think it supposed to be used to say the Diamonds are leaving, but one wonders why it was used at that point (okay maybe my brain is trying to make connections that aren't there, whatever :V). Of course Lapis realised Earth could be able to have a place safe for her especially after she realises she barely saw any of it (also wow reversal of figurative speech, "it's funny" that happened indeed), but... Peridot shows up, which of course is going to make things awkward for the next episode... But yeah good episode, and I'm sure it's gonna provide more Lapis speculation and theories. I just hope the other gems and Greg aren't super casual about Steven being away for a while...
  • Barn Mates: "New compact look," huh? Peridot calls him Steven Quartz, too. Peridot still seems to miss her enhancers though with the paint cans, though. Of course Lapis is Lapissed, and she wants Peri away because of the whole ordeal with Lapis being used as her informant. Also Peri being against Homeworld has really gotten to her, with that "I'm a big deal comment." Of course Peridot tries to convince Lapis that she's different and stuff, but... yeah. Steven drew them with anime eyes on the card, WTF? Peridot's apology took an hour to write, too... that's honestly what I'd be like. I'd be really picky and take ages to decide what I'd say. :P (Lick) One thing that stood out was that Peridot implied that Lapis Lazulis may be a kind of gem and not just something rare, she said they were partial to water and flying (and has she actually seen Lapis around water?). Of course maybe she's judging from observation, but still. Lapis was then dramatic and explained the whole Malachite ordeal (though the way she was drawn kinda reminded me of Brian from Family Guy, lol). I think something interesting is how Steven does bring up how Lapis is being really cold to Peridot's attempt to try and appease her, but I'm kind of thinking he doesn't actually know her full side. Lapis obviously finds it hard to trust people, and we can already see some reasons why with being stuck in the mirror and all of that. I'm just wondering if Steven fully understands how much she's actually been hurt by everything, and how that affects her outlook towards others. One thing that kind of bugged me was how Steven being away for a day wasn't addressed by the Crystal Gems when they arrived, especially when in the last episode they mentioned that Steven would arrive soon. It does kind of remind me of Island Adventure in that way, actually, but here they at least seemed to respond to something. I guess one thing I'm not too sure on is Lapis' "are you alright" with Peridot. IDK if it's because she actually saw that Peridot's basically an outsider like her, but it did seem kind of quick. I'd say this hasn't been as good as the other episodes in Season 3, but I still thought it was decent. It had some funny moments and interesting character insights, though I do think it's a little contrived. One person I've talked with has pointed out that it did kind of turn from "Peridot needs to stay here too" to "Peridot wants to be besties with Lapis" without much setup. I mean it was still Peridot trying to say that she's willing to live in the same place, but they kind of threw in this whole friendship angle too. I mean being friends with the person you're staying with certainly helps, but still. Of course the CGs can't really discuss much about Lapis being with them because we end in a cliffhanger...
