Mumbles, pokemon speak, and being mute are different than a full-fledged other language. If it was at least consistent it would seem less weird.

And while SU has been...strange about geography, I wouldn't really expect them to make their own normal-ish human race.

Besides, Steven himself has shown confusion at Onion and his gang. Of all people, Steven would know enough about people from other countries to not be so weirded out by him.

Also, you cut that quote off right at the first part, when it was mostly the fact that they all both have some variation on not speaking english AND they're all named after foods that seem weird to me.

Maybe it's just a running gag in a children's cartoon and the kids are just weird little kids.

If this was a show other than SU (Aside from maybe Gravity Falls) I'd believe that. But it is SU.

Look, I'm not saying you're an idiot if you don't think somethin's up. It's just that, personally, I think there is.

yellowtail has the same kind of speech that onion does, and onion very definitely has parents who very definitely are his parents.

so onion is just a weird kid.

and he has weird friends.

there really is quite bodaciously nothing more to look into on this. SU doesn't pull random shit out like that, onion being weird has very much been stated to just be onion being weird, and not him being particularly special or whatever. he's just another side character.

I MEAN no one said you were implying that you thought we were idiots. But you sure seem to think that we think you're implying something. Are you implying something?

That's what Rebecca Sugar wants you to think.

BTW, how cool of a name is Rebecca Sugar? It's like she was born to make cartoons.

So, the minisodes happened.

Do they need spoiler tags?

I won't bother with spoiler tags.

Gem Karaoke: Aww. Also, how the hell are they getting away with Amethyst? Blatantly almost swearing in Last one out of beach city, flaunting her fucking booty at Pearl (Followed by Pearl basically going 'bitch my EVERYTHING is sexy whatchu got')? I love it and I'm glad they're not getting censored, but how

Steven Reacts: BETTER GET THE BLOODY DUCT TAPE! God, did you have to finish off Sardonyx's hit, Steven? Geesh...

Video Chat: Why Lapis is best gem

Cooking with Lion: Well that's something I never expected to see referenced.

Steven's Song Time: Fuck, my feelings. The transition into we are the crystal gems at the end, too, just...agh, why you gotta play me like this Aivi and Surasshu/Rebecca/Whoever wrote it I dunno

In this episode, Peridot tries to teach a dog to say 'clod'.

That is absolutely everything of import. Yep. All of it. Definitely.

White Diamond is giving me major Glados vibes from Portal, something strange is definitely up with her!

The way I read her she's more of a narcissistic parent, ignoring and belittling her "child's" emotions and talking over him. It's hard to tell with such a short few moments of screentime, but that's sorta the vibe I get.

My take is that she might be an an elaborate, souped-up version of Pearl's holo-Pearls, only able to perform a handful of tasks, with the actual White Diamond out lost somewhere.
