We don't need to be careful, we just need to be huge
Ahhhh, well. I don’t think I’d ever think to describe Pearl as introverted.
Pearl is overprotective, sure. She’s also interested in Gem culture above all else, which leaves trivial things (in Pearl’s mind, mind you) like beach parties, and pizza places to be less than important. So maybe that’s where you’re viewing Pearl as drawn back? But from everything Rebecca Sugar and the Steven Universe Crew have explained about the Crystal Gems, Gems just really don’t find humans interesting. That to me isn’t introverted.
I think Pearl is protective over Steven because he’s still learning, and she’s his mentor. She is one of his three mentors, all of whom have different styles of teaching Steven how to be himself and how to be the best Gem he can be. Her style just so happens to be occasionally overbearing, but with good intentions.
Beach City was on fire today! The whole boardwalk! Some blame teenage hijinks, but I know the real culprit: The Ghost of William Buford Buchanan, Beach City’s Most Notorious Arsonist!
He set a record 335 fires in the summer of 1862. Back then, there weren’t many buildings in Beach City, so he had to burn his own house down 68 times. He even burned down the Funland Arcade, or as it was known at the time, Frederick Ulysses Neptune’s Land of Mechanical Oddities and Entertainment. I heard it was great! They had a monkey fortune teller that could predict the future and play Camptown Races on an accordion.
Buchanan died trying to evade the police by diving into the ocean. But some say his waterlogged visage still haunts the Boardwalk, desperately trying to light his soggy flint and steel kit, and add one more fire to his record. I guess he finally found out about lighter fluid! HAH!
Mayor Dewey estimates damages to be $600,000.
Justice is blind, color blind.
His judgements might be ruff, but they’re fair.
If you’re a dirty lawyer, he’ll be sure to have you disbarked.
Got a bone to pick with this judge? He sure hopes so.
Your client might not get to walk, but he most certainly will.
He sentenced a man to death with evidence that was circumstantial at best.
He’s Judge Dog, and he’s a son of a bitch. Also, I didn’t get anything done this week model wise.
It really depends on how it plays out because on one hand, it would be nice to see Lars grow as a person and make an active effort to treat her properly. He’s very young and he has room to grow as a person, most people do stuff at some point in their life that’s very hurtful to another person but we always have the capacity to learn from it and grow and be a little less terrible
But on the other hand it would be nice to see Sadie become more self-confident and grow enough to be able to say “I don’t deserve to be treated this way” and make her own personal choice to leave. I think that sort of thing is a very important development for a person, we sometimes need to recognize that someone is just toxic for us (even if they’re not necessarily a bad person) and be able to step away, no matter how painful or scary that can be
I think either way would be a good story. Maybe both? I’d love to see both characters developed to their full potential and explored more, overall.
