From July 2013: Some pre-‘Ocean Gem’ Lapis drawings I did based on Rebecca’s early designs.
YOU HEARD RIGHT! STARTING THIS WEEK:
NEW EPISODES OF STEVEN UNIVERSE are now Thursdays at 6:45 pm E/P. Tune in early and catch an episode of Clarence!
Check your channel listings and change your plans accordingly!
An important distinction:
When Steven and his friends became an obstacle to Lapis, she didn’t hesitate to respond with force, nearly drowning Steven and Connie and breaking Greg’s leg (not to mention risking killing him by hurling the van), only stopping when Steven (who is half-Gem) displayed enough power to make her stop.
When Onion had the replicator and was causing a whole lot of damage to Beach City, the Crystal Gems attempted to coax him into willingly giving them the item even though they could’ve easily taken it from him by force.
The context is entirely different, yea, but something to keep in mind, maybe? The Crystal Gems work in defense of humanity and avoid causing any direct harm to them (Amethyst seems a lot less strict about this than the other too, in “Tiger Millionaire” Pearl was horrified Amethyst used her Gem powers against humans), but while Lapis probably had no desire to actively harm humans, she didn’t really seem to care if her actions hurt or killed humans
There haven’t been any references to other Crystal Gems outside of Rose Quartz, so I’m a little skeptical on this. Lapis could’ve easily been referring to other gems that placed her there that had no relation to Rose and the Crystal Gems.
As for gem artifacts, those remains to be seen!
I think Pearl and the other Crystal Gems reacted appropriately. They did not know Lapis Lazuli before she was placed in the mirror, and had likely assumed she long since passed away with such a significant crack along her Gem. They also fight corrupted Gems regularly, and don’t seem to hold any major sympathy for them. Why would Lapis be any different?
They clearly show sympathy in losses that have effected them personally (ie: Rose Quartz), but this wasn’t the case as I understand it.
Aw yeeaaahhh! Lookit what I did instead of homework! I thought I’d break out my uke and jam out a little, sang one of my favourite songs from the show, Steven Universe.
You’ll have to excuse my lame audio quality, I don’t have any of the fancy recording technology so I had to use my phone. Also excuse my voice, I’m not exactly confident in my singing skills. I just really like the show a whole bunch and I thought I’d contribute to the fandom in my own little way. :3
From composers Aivi and Surasshu:
A few tracks from Mirror Gem, Paul and Raven’s amazing episode. This is the show’s darkest set of songs so far! I recorded a special version of Lapis Lazuli’s theme for the crew blog.
Strings performed by Jeff Ball and promo art by Paul Villeco!
