Who else here is a huge Steven Universe fan? How did you start watching the show? Do you have any interesting theories? Who's your favorite character? How about your favorite song? Keep in mind, there may be untagged spoilers below, so if you haven't watched it before and would like to, be careful!

I found out about Steven Universe waaay before it actually became a show. Being a huge pile of Tumblr trash, and since I was already a casual Adventure Time fan, I saw the pilot early on and got ultra hyped when I learned my waifu Rebecca Sugar was making it! I was already expecting a lot, so I was blown away when it not only met, but EXCEEDED my high expectations!

Favorite song? Well, that's hard. Rebecca Sugar is kinda boss when it comes to composing catchy little tunes. I'm going to go against the grain and not say "Stronger than You". It is a FANTASTIC song, and, objectively, probably the best Rebecca's ever written. But my personal favorite is "Strong in the Real Way". I love that song for a lot of reasons.

First off, it's the first time we hear Pearl sing (obviously not including the theme song). It's the first duet in the series as well. Secondly, it's so great at getting across strong emotions! Lastly, it's just friggin BEAUTIFUL. I'm not going to lie, I thought "Cookie Cat" was annoying, "Let Me Drive My Van (Into Your Heart)" was forgettable, and "Giant Woman" was... good, but silly. This was the first time in the series that I was literally MOVED by a song.

Honorable mentions go to "Stronger than You" (duh), "Do It for Him/Her", the extended theme song (BABBY STEVEN U GAIZ), "Be Wherever You Are", "Haven't You Noticed (I'm a Star)", "What Can I Do For You", the ending theme, and "Comet". I have sung all of those at some point in the shower.

If we're counting background music (which is just as lovely), my absolute favorite would be "Lion's Mane", with honorable mentions going to "Opal" (and her fusion song - I forget the title), "Flambé!", "Night Drive 2", and "Be Cool at the Rave".

My favorite character is a toss up between Garnet and Connie. On one hand, Garnet being a loving fusion between Ruby and Sapphire and the foreshadowing and build up to that point was just BREATH TAKING story telling! Her design is awesome (although, ngl, I liked her pre-generation design better, though I like her post-regeneration color scheme more), and I love how stoic and badass she usually is, contrasted with her adorable love for Steven.

On the other hand, I relate very personally with Connie. I loved seeing a beautiful, brown skinned girl as the main love interest. Also she's super smart and has really strict, overbearing parents that DO love her, even if their actions are misguided at times. Again, very relatable. More than anything, though, I LOVE how she turned into a kickass ninja warrior in season 2! The fact that she loves Steven so much, she'd train hard to protect him in itself is sweet. I also love how the series subverts just about EVERY trope out there by having Steven as the defensive one and Connie as the offensive!

Both Connie and Garnet are kind of like my role models. I need to keep them in mind when trying to whip this tubby ass into shape.

I don't have very many theories that seem likely at the time being except one - Stevonnie kicking all KINDS of ass with Steven's shield, Connie's swordmanship, and Rose's sword! I CAN'T FUCKING WAIT U GAIZ

*cough cough* ... I'm okay. As you can see, I am all sorts of passionate about this show. I could talk for hours about it. But I think I'll let you guys have a turn. c:

Lion doesn't need to talk. Lion communicates by being a lion.

I thought Peridot becoming a Crystal Gem would be cliche, but of course, the amazing writing inherent in the show prevented that.

Also I might kinda ship Garidot now slay me
