Post Steven Universe
So, with the second Steven Bomb over with, and a third on its way in July, I figured it was time to have a discussion thread about it.

Who is best Gem? best Character in general? What's the deal with Onion? Do you have a Gemsona?

the answers for me are Garnet, Garnet, shrug, and I have a Gem form.

Oh look a Steven Universe thread. Wait wasn't the second Steven Bomb some time ago?

I'll also be rooting for Garnet, she seems like the most stable and wise of the crystal gems. Stevonnie is pretty fun to watch though, they're a fun fusion. I personally see Onion like Gunter, one day the Diamond Authority will face the evil terror that is ONION.

I've enjoyed the recent flood of episodes, it's sometimes heavy, sometimes cryey, but at all times very human. You can really imagine all the issues going on being created/resolved in the characters.

I smiled so very wide that my little cousin thought my face was stuck as I watched the new intro.

My favorite gem is actually Pearl. She was from the start and despite her behavior as a gemling with Rose, she still is.

Best character, though, is Garnet. If it weren't for her, the world would have fallen apart because no one can lead the gems like she can.

I don't wanna talk about the devil spawn Onion.

I don't have a gemsona, because whenever I try to make one the gem is already CANONbut I do have two gem OCs, Topaz and Citrine.

My favorite gem is Garnet. In my opinion, Steven Universe is the best show on Cartoon Network right now. Just saying.

Rewatching the series in preparation for an analysis article, and it is surprising how much the show has developed and the characters matured. It happens so subtly you barely notice it until you look back at the beginning.

What's y'alls favorite songs?

Post Re: Steven Universe
it's way too hard to choose.
but as far as songs I've listened to/sung multiple times, Stronger Than You, Steven's Lament, and Let Me Drive My Van Into Your Heart are in my top.

I love this show. Sworn to the sword especially. That episode was amazing, especially the song and the implications involving Stevonnie.

So, I really liked the latest episode. I rewatched it immediately after finishing it the first time.

Oh my gosh! Same! I always do that, and Peridot was really funny in this episode. She had a really short fuse. Jk. That was horrible.

In order of the way that the questions were asked.

Amethyst. Ronaldo. He's just lonely since his father spends a lot of time at sea and he has nothing in common with his half-brother Sour Cream. No, but I marathoner the whole show in one week.

Bonus answer: Favorite fusion is Sugilite not just because she's basically Nicki Minaj in gem form. Favorite fusions in order are Sugillite, Opal, Garnet, Sardonyx, Alexandrite, Rainbow Quartz, Stevonnie and Malachite

Though I do have to wonder WHY Estelle was never big in the US. Except for one hit in the US in 2007 (American Boy, which was due to Kanye West being featured on it), she isn't well known.

Steven Universe has long had singers voicing characters, yeah? So who would be an awesome person to voice Yellow Diamond when she eventually appears (which looks to be soon)?

Incredibly unlikely, but I'd dig it if Lady Gaga voiced her. Or maybe Marina and the Diamonds.

I'm pulling for Madonna or Mariah Carey to voice her. The Queens of Music before anybody else this generation arrived on the scene!

Post Re: Steven Universe
personally I'm pulling for them to choose Zelda Williams cause I think Kuvira's voice (from legend of Korra) matches her design.

but if they're going with a singer, It would have to be one long established, but who could believably voice a ruthless tyrant.

maybe with a huskier voice. someone who isn't doing much. maybe Cher?

or maybe they'll choose someone more known as a singer for a group (like Aimee Mann for Opal) and they'll get one of the singers from Heart.

Speaking of Opal, I wanna see her again. I know it may not possible right now (since Pearl and Amethyst only do it in EXTREME circumstances) but I wanna see their SUCCESSFUL fusion dance. If only because Amethyst twerks during it.

It may be hard to see the fusions again if they are all voiced by big singers because of their schedule. I won't really hold my breath on Sugillite though. Nicki Minaj is still big. Estelle only had one hit in the US and that was more because she had Kanye West on it and it was nearly a decade ago.

I also wanna see Alexandrite's dance. If all three of them jump into each other, or two fuse and then they fuse with the remaining gem (i.e. Pearl+Amethyst=Opal+Garnet=Alexandrite)

Ooh, yeah, Zelda'd definitely be my first non-singer choice.

Thinking about it some more, I think that maybe Stevie Nicks would make a good choice. That or Kim Carnes.

Post Re: Steven Universe
listening to Kim Carnes' speaking voice (as of 2013), she doesn't really fit Yellow Diamond for me.
and Stevie Nicks only fits if you think of YD as an older Peridot-like Gem.

listening to Anne Wilson (from Heart)'s speaking voice, it sounds like she could make a good YD.

of course, neither Jasper nor Peridot are played by singers, so YD is likely to be a non-singer too.

Unless Yellow Diamond turns out to be a fusion but that seems very unlikely. Garnet gems can already be different types like pyrope (regenerated Garnet) or almandine (original Garnet). Diamonds are just classified differently.

And not all fusions are voiced by singers so even if she was, that might not be the case. Alexandrite is voiced by a director, Malachite doesn't have a single voice since she fused together for revenge rather than hatred, Rainbow Quartz didn't have a voice but I'd like to think that if she did, she might be voiced by Desirée Goyette (who voiced Danse in Jem and the Holograms and Rainbow Quartz looks EXACTLY like her and she is a singer also), Sardonyx is voiced by a theater actor, the gem that saved William Dewey didn't have a voice, the cluster gems were voiced by Dee Bradley Baker and Zach Callison (if you can call groans voicing) and the cluster that will cause the apocalypse hasn't hatched yet so we don't know who it will be voiced like.
