    Summary

    The life of a bismuth is simple: build and repair.

    But one Bismuth finds hers growing complicated as, during routine maintenance of Gem quarters on the young colony planet Earth, she strikes up an odd camaraderie with three quartzes: Biggs Jasper, Crazy Lace Agate, and Snowflake Obsidian. Meanwhile, tensions over the increasingly disruptive rebel attacks escalate and Bismuth will need to figure out for herself what loyalty truly means.

    I liked the backstories of the familiar characters that made you care about the characters and understand why they would join the rebellion despite this story being so short. There was also some good world-building about the actions of the rebels, the state of humanity at this time, and the chain of Gem command as Bismuth sees it. The plot is less interesting than it could be because we know how everything ends, but the character interactions are still interesting enough as they happen.

    "Hey everybody, it’s me, Steven Universe! Doing something a little different today because… I JUST HIT THREE HUNDRED SUBSCRIBERS!"

    (Or: the subscribers of St3v3nUnivers3 are pretty sure the channel is some elaborately concocted ARG. Steven remains oblivious.)

    Mildly funny.

    Summary

    The creator of the St3v3nUnivers3 TubeTube channel has realized there's been a... misunderstanding about the nature of the videos he makes. He's determined to tell the truth and set any confusion to rest.

    Easier said than done, unfortunately.

    A short, single-joke story with a realistic portrayal of how Steven would reply to his TubeTube comments.

    Summary

    The Crystal Gems have often thought that everything would be so much easier if Rose had never left, that everything would be so much better if she could somehow come back.

    Unfortunately, reality isn't quite that simple.

    A nice start, but incomplete. The purposefully-invoked uneasy atmosphere has only been partially resolved, so this unfinished story doesn’t leave me with a good feeling. It does have good theorizing on the behaviors of Greg and Perl though.

    Summary

    Not all Pearls have the chance to run off to another planet and take up arms. Not all fights are grand and romantic. These are the little rebellions- little, but just as defiant.

    At first, the stories were nice but inconsequential. The plot at the end made much of what I had read significant again, and fit each character (the little we knew of each). It is a plausible way the rebellion could happen, and a hopeful one.
