Wait, what is this Steven Universe you're talking about?

Steven Universe is many things. A pretty good show about young boy growing up in an ordinary town. A group of aliens trying to protect humanity from the leftover remnants of a mysterious past that presents itself in monster attacks. A super awkward family?

Uhhhh... let me just post the wikipedia synopsis instead:

Steven Universe is an American animated television series created by Rebecca Sugar, former storyboard artist, writer, and composer for Adventure Time. It is produced by Cartoon Network Studios, and is the first show by the studio to be created by a woman. The series, rated TV-PG, premiered on Cartoon Network in North America on November 4, 2013.

In Steven Universe, the world is protected from evil by the Crystal Gems, a group of intergalactic warriors who draw their power from special magical gem stones. The four Gems are Garnet, Amethyst, Pearl, and Steven. Steven is a boy who inherited a gemstone from his mother, a Crystal Gem named Rose Quartz. As Steven tries to figure out the secrets of his gem, he spends his days in Beach City doing activities with the other Crystal Gems, whether it's helping them save the universe or just hanging out.

Here are the characters of the show

Garnet (voiced by Estelle)

– A physically imposing, disciplined warrior, Garnet is the leader of the group (in Rose's absence); her gemstone is a red garnet which is embedded into each of her hands. . . . She is physically the strongest member and is a mentor to Steven, though she rarely speaks more than a few pragmatic words at a time"

Amethyst (voiced by Michaela Dietz)

"The impulsive and passionate 'wild child' of the Gems; her gem stone is an amethyst which is embedded over her chest. . . . Amethyst is very joyous and carefree, and despite being a magical entity who does not need to eat or sleep, she does so because she enjoys it. She loves to roughhouse with Steven and trade jokes."

Pearl (voiced by Deedee Magno Hall)

"A short tempered, precise, and intellectual strategist, Pearl is the mental powerhouse of the Gems; her gemstone is a pearl which is embedded in her forehead. Activating her gemstone summons a teal-colored long-handled spear. She has pale skin, pale strawberry-blonde hair, and wears a blue and green tutu in keeping with her dainty, ballerina-like physique. . . . She strives for structure and logic and gets easily flustered when things don’t go as planned."

AND STEVEN! (voiced by Zach Callison)

"The main character, the youngest gem member and the only male on the team; his gem stone is a rose quartz that he inherited from his mother, Rose Quartz. His gem, embedded in his belly button, summons a shield which may also act as a projectile. . . .Despite this, he has been unable to discover how to activate his own gem at will. He is a chubby, enthusiastic and often musical person, talented on the ukulele and prone to breaking into song. He is eager to prove his abilities and his worth as a Crystal Gem. The 3 remaining Crystal Gems, Garnet, Amethyst and Pearl, take the combined roles of being his family and teachers in his life, looking after Steven at his young age. They live together in a combination suburban house and magical crystal temple."

I found it using Google's reverse image source! :D It's super useful for sourcing art. I reblogged it from the artist too to show them some love.

As an artist myself, I'm actually relatively chill on reposted art, like I've seen my stuff reposted without credit a few times, and I actually felt honored in a way because it's the opposite of the feeling you get when your mom praises your art because she HAS to love you--it's your work being loved completely in your absence. And on some level it's on the artist too--the ones who really care will watermark their art, discreetly if they just don't want to lose credit, prominently if they're also assholes cough cough. But that's a pretty unpopular opinion on tumblr, where a lot of artists are art school students trying to get their big break, and not getting credited for their work terrifies them. Little stuff like this is harmless, but there's companies who will steal art for shirt designs, clickbait sites who profit off the art without credit, crap like that that makes artists touchy even about the innocent stuff.

Anyway yep I love the comic, Pearl's such a gold star lesbian space rock lmao. Only wants to fuse with nice pretty space girls u____u

Amethyst is also very cool, I can only agree there. I love it when she shape-shifts all over the place for fun or just to annoy Pearl, and she's pretty wild but it's endearing at the same time.

The wrestling ep was one of the last ones I saw and I loved it for seeing more of the gems dynamic because you have Amethyst with some very understandable anger towards her sisters, and you get to see Pearl and Garnet cut loose a bit as well which was really nice.

Puma's are indeed cool. :3

lmao remember when an episode of Buffy was censored for content resembling a school shooting, soon after a school shooting happened? This episode was one tragedy away from being pulled forever.

I loved Alone Together! It had a great focus on consent too, with consent not just as a yes beforehand, but as an ongoing, variable process. Sad to say it's probably better sex education than the sex education most kids are getting ;A; TV might be getting more progressive, but schools sure aren't.

I wasn't sensitized to the school shooting imagery on a personal level, but it was kind of like, "wow someone at the network LOVES this show." Which certainly bodes well for it!
