Spinel

Future butchered her character so hard that it killed her popularity with just a few minutes of additional screen time, I can only assume her characterization in the movie was a fluke.

    Whole movie was a fluke. How did Sugar shit the bed with half the show and then make a mostly decent film?

      Because it had an actual conflict, a threatening villain and stakes, while during the show's run they spent all the time building up these mounting threads and then defused the entire situation in, like, two episodes.

      The movie opened with a strong act 1 fight/villain song and then did something of a retrospective on how the gems became who they are today, followed by a climactic final battle. It follows a 4 act format where the status quo is restored at the end, which is satisfying story structure, compared to an 11 minute cartoon which has to introduce the conflict, play it out, and then conclude it. Then, because everyone wants serialization, you have to try and string those 11 minute episodes in to a big arc where the conclusion has to be done in that same format, so it feels rushed.

    She should’ve been the one to help Steven stop worrying that everyone was moving on without him and didn’t need him anymore. She of all people would know what that’s like.

      If Future had good storytelling, it would have gone that route, but I got the impression that Rebecca came up with with the ending first and worked backwards to get there.

        Isn't that how people usually write stories?

    You and I remember two different pasts. I recall a bunch of Spinel posts after her future appearance, and she was already getting plenty around that time.

      It didn't kill her popularity overnight, but it did trigger its decline.

        A lot of people were hoping that she would establish a real friendship bond with Steven. After Future killed that, people just lost faith in her I guess.

          That would've been a better route by a long shot. In a world where sugar is actually good in story telling. We might've gotten that instead.

          Not true, plenty of characters remain popular long after the original work ends. You've just outed yourself as someone that exclusively consumes cheap, disposable garbage. Whether a character endures depends on whether or not they have anything significant or interesting to say about the human condition, in any respect.

        no. you also need to have a musical number.

    You never liked her character, you just liked the angst. She was always a dumb (amazing) clown.

      It was a promising start then the rest of the episode wrote her as an oblivious retard unlike how the movie left off on her.

        She was always an oblivious retard. The movie left her off with the diamonds, because punching bags like her never learn. It's what makes her so sexy.

          I am still so pissed they left her with the diamonds purely because she belonged to Pink and the fans drew her wearing her clothes like a fucked up replacement.

              This. Stayed to help clean up her mess at least, then continued staying there because she made friends with Steven and the gang. The diamonds whisking her away at the last second wasn't just a poor resolution to her character arc, it was a shitty deus ex machina purely to maintain the status quo, arguably worse than Peridot getting barn'd instead of getting a room in the temple.

            she was some heavy waifubait. but i get it, from steven's perspective she's yet another ex gf of rose's and he must be really tired of dealing with them. spinel was especially clingy because of her abandonment issues, when the diamonds arrived he must've thought "oh thank fuck please keep her forever".

              It’s a shame she met Steven when he was an angsty teen instead of when he was an optimistic kid looking to make new friends.

                Yeah, really wish she had shown up sooner. Could have ended this trainwreck quicker.

                Fuck it, she should have killed him as soon as she first disabled his powers by wrapping her limbs around his neck and squeezing. That way, we still get to hear Other Friends and Future has been prevented.

    What the hell are you talking about? The movie already fucked her over.
    >craved approval and validation from a Diamond so much she sat doing nothing for thousands of years
    >doesn't understand the concept of friendship, thinks it's about being entertaining and slavishly following orders
    >had no agency of her own, first real decision she made for herself was to kill a planet
    Hmm what a tragic and twisted character, how is Steven going to help her become her own person, a better person?
    >"Get your approval entertaining other Diamonds, who only like you because you remind them of their dead sister"
    Bro these people tried writing about mental health, the inmates were running the asylum. Future just added that Steven doesn't believe in his own words, which was not surprising.

    The end of the movie already butchered any chance of her being a good character, what the fuck are you talking about? They have a character that is entirely dependent on the desires of others so they send her off to three chucklefucks who view her as their little sister's toy and she's happy about it.

    All three endings of SU were bad. In three separate ways.
