This is my cat Jade, or as her warrior name Leafstorm. Me and my sister found her one winter when I was in grade 2 or 3 and my sis was a grade above me. I don't know how old she was when we found her, but since I graduated last year, she must be in the ranges of 12-16 years old as of 2012. (so I don't have to come back and change the year and age) That's what I'm guessing.
She's obviously a Maine Coon because of her beautiful BEAUTIFUL fur, but me and my friend think she's part American Short-hair for the stature and because she's not quite as furry as a pure bred Maine Coon.
For the most part, I didn't know what to make of the 'cool kids' at first. Jenny, Sour Cream, and..... I always forget that last kids name.... anyway they seemed to be the kind of kids that are cool yet not snobby, since Steven went up to them and started talking to them and they didn't shoo him away because he was a kid, and admittedly a bit dorky. But no instead they were like 'Sure lets hang cause why not' and I like that. Heck this show is amazing for portraying characters that are not only against stereotypical views, but it's done in a way that makes them feel like real people. And that's why a lot of people love this show, me included.
So it starts off with the gems cleaning up after the spaceship trying to get every piece together and keep people from accidentally uncovering it and messing around with it (I somehow have a theory that Ronaldo may have gotten his hands on one as he ran off as soon as he saw the spaceship on the beach, we'll see I suppose) Then Jenny, Sour Cream and the apparent son of Mayor Dewey come in and want Steven to hang with them. Now the key thing here is they genuinely want him to join them, not because he has magic, not because he has influence, The Mayor's son (I should probably look up is name or something) specifically says "You got that much needed counterpoint to our cynical world view." And Sour Cream follows up with "Good energy flow." so they actually like his personality and attitude. Steven declines, saying he's busy with gem stuff, so they leave without him.
Sour Cream and Buck Dewey (There it is X3c) return later at night, and throw slices of pizza they were delivering at Steven's window to get his attention. Again they want to hang out and at first Steven is hesitant saying night time is for dreaming, but they convince him to join when they enforce that he's finished his work for the day and can do what he wants.
Jenney is driving them all in the Pizza Car, having a good time until Sour Cream brings up an issue he has with his dad wanting him to be a fisherman, and him wanting to be a DJ (I had to watch this again for the review, and the first time I missed this, but we find out he is Onion's brother as he does an imitation of his dad. I thought it was a Charlie Brown reference at first or mocking him or something >.> ........... wait..... Sour Cream... and Onion.... *facepalm* I just realized that while typing this -.-) and that leads to everyone else revealing their own troubles at home. Of course, Steven trumps all of them, and they all go XDDDDD However, we also learn that Steven secretly worries that the gems blame him for his mom not being around, which is why he can't talk to them about certain issues like what he revealed to his friends, and I almost cried at that. I'll admit it.
Sour Cream suddenly spots something and shouts, forcing Jenny to stop the car, and they notice something glowing in the field nearby. It ends up being Peridot's escape pod, and though Steven tried to deter them from it they go ahead and check it out anyway. Steven desperately tries to get them to leave saying it's dangerous, but they're unconvinced as the ship is inactive, and Jenny ends up taking selfies. Steven end up going along with it, and Jenny wants to take another one with Steven in the ship, and that ends up activating it. At first Steven wants to be responsible and take it back to the gems, but the kids reason with him saying he deserves to have fun because of the stress he's gone through lately. So he gets the hang of using it and has fun, but when he punches a dent in the roof partially back in shape, the pod become fully active and ends up going haywire, shooting a flare that ends up leading the gems to him as the pod attacks his friends. Unfortunately they think Peridot is in there since they can't see inside the pod anymore once it became fully active, and start attacking with Steven inside. He tries calling to them but they can't hear him, and Amethyst snags the pod with her whip which Garnet begins to slowly pull towards her while delivering a speech, Steven desperately pleading her name, and just as Garnet is about to punch him back into space, Jenny steps in the way and tells her Steven is in there. She gets him out and they are angry with him for not getting them immediately, but his friends defend him and explain that he's had a hard time and everyone needs a break once in a while. Which ends up getting Steven ungrounded.
Now I absolutely love this part of the show, because we see Garnet being more talkative, the gems learning that they need to ease up a bit on Steven, and Steven learning that it's okay for him to have fun. The pod scene really got me, because once Garnet saw him in there (it was a faint image because of the screen the pot had up), he was cowering, and Garnet's jaw just drops. Like even though her glasses were on you could easily see her expression like 'Oh my god, I almost hurled Steven into space' just that devastation, it looked like she might have been crying almost.
This is exactly why I love Steven Universe, character development, excellent consistency with the story, amazing 3D characters, awesome plot, just everything is awesome! The art style may be a bit cartoony for some people, but I really think those who don't like the art style should give it a chance for the characters alone, like it's so hard to fins a show with characters so real like this, not to mention you can physically see Steven's character growth throughout the show. But that brings to mind, how exactly to gems grow? We've established they are more or less immortal provided their gem's aren't damaged, and they aren't really sure how to handle Steven as he is half human, but is the reason they don't know because of the fact they don't have growth stages like us? Do they just know everything they need to basically know upon creation? Do they still have learning curves, just not maturity levels based on puberty stages? There's still a few mysteries surrounding them, including how Homeworld gems are created if it's different than Kindergarten gems, hopefully we'll find out later~
