Challenge #01348-C253: That Escalated Quickly

Lilo Pelekai and Steven Universe -- Anon Guest

[AN: Pretty sure 90% of the Disney Channel visited Lilo, back in the day, so I'm bringing Lilo to Steven]

Steven was getting fast. And strong. And thanks to his newfound ability to leap around like a balloon, Greg didn't have to spend so much on a truck rental. Which meant that the beach stage was going up in record time.

Correction. It had gone up in record time.

"Whoah. You're getting too good, kiddo. There's still hours before the national hula contest."

"Sooner started, sooner done. Sooner hanging out and having fun," singsonged Steven. "Are you thinking what I'm thinking?"

"Father son duo mic check?" he gestured towards his van.

"You read my mind. I'm'a get my uke." And just like that, he sprang away to the temple.

Kid was getting more and more like his mother every day. Greg strolled over to his van and extracted his guitar from the general mess inside. He tried not to think about his son living forever, as all his human allies aged and... well. That was a problem for a different day. And Greg didn't doubt that Steven would find a way.

He tuned the guitar on his way back to the stage. He owed Steven as much simple fun as he could get. Time like this was precious for its rarity.

Steven was landing like a feather just as Greg reached the bottom of the stairs. "Great timing, Stu-ball." He began strumming a tropical theme and Steven picked it up and elaborated on it. Within seconds, they had a whole luau song going.

And an audience.

Some of the competitors had made it to Beach City early. Okay. One of the competitors. She was with her... well, they had to be family, but... Greg was quietly wondering where two of them were hiding their Gems. One of them literally had four eyes, and the other one, just one. And tentacles for feet.

Well, he supposed not all Gems had to look human...

There were three other humans with the group. One more adult version of the kid contestant, one young guy who could easily be the elder sister's boyfriend, and a brick-house of a black guy in formal wear.

"Aloha," smiled Greg. "Welcome to Beach City."

"Aloha," said the creature that could have been a dog in a poor light.

Great. Three potential Gems.

"Wow," Steven sprang from the stage and floated down. "Cool! When did the three of you come to Earth?"

"Couple of years ago?" shrugged the big one with four eyes and elephantine feet. He had a weirdly Russian accent. "We are exiled to monitor Experiment 626."

"Stitch," said the dog-thing. Stitch. He offered a paw/hand.

"I've never heard of a Gem called 'Stitch'," said Steven. "Is that short for something?"

"Gem?" said the kid contestant.

And that was where things went south, fast. The three with the young contestant were not Gems at all, but aliens from a larger confederacy of planets with intelligent life.

A confederacy that had something of an... ongoing argument with the Homeworld Gems.

And like anything involving alien superpowers, there was a lot of wreckage and devastation before Steven managed to settle things down in his own unique style.

The young contestant, called Lilo, merely sighed as she watched the mayhem from the relative safety of the stage. "This is why they wouldn't let me on the bus."

Challenge #01344-C249: Blindly Winning

Lion and Connie - without Steven -- Gallifreya

Steven? Connie opened her eyes. Pink fur. Cotton-candy mane. Steven's lion. She was in the middle of a small circle of clear air, or what seemed to be clear air. The meadow and the flowers under her feet soon vanished under the eldritch shapes of the obscuring fog.

"Where's Steven?" said Connie. "Do you know?"

Lion just licked her face.

There was... a Homeworld Gem called Moonstone. She had the power to summon obscuring

Garnet vs. the PTA -- Gallifreya

[AN: Cue Harper Valley PTA :D]

Steven's first semester at school had not gone great. He was failing advanced math, and flunked right out of sharing that class with Connie at all. And on the night before the PTA meeting, Steven came home with a note.

It was not a criticism of Steven, nor of his scholastic performance. It was a criticism of the Gems and their 'unconventional' lifestyle being a reason why they should not

Challenge #01318-C223: Gem Daycare

1) Steven likes to visit Centi. She and the others have sort of adopted him as an honorary crewmember at this point.

2) From -

Teaching kindergarten is like being an ambassador to beings from another planet and teaching them how to assimilate to our culture.

“No, we do not LICK water fountains. Perhaps that is acceptable on your planet, but here on earth we prefer to DRINK from water fountains.”

“Physics might be a little

Challenge #01316-C221: Random Encounter

Pick your favourite cartoon character, print or media and have them meet/interact with another. -- Knitnan

[AN: You do realise SPG have their own webcomic right? but I'll play this straight this time]

"That wormhole really did a number on me," mumbled Sylvia. "Where the flarf are we?"

"I have no idea," Wander chirped. He had made a campfire and was roasting something on a stick. "But the beach is lovely and there's a cute little town on the other side

Challenge #01182-C087: Goodbye Rose, Hello Steven

"Tiny Hands! My only weakness" -- Anon Guest


He couldn't stop crying. Both for his lost love and for joy at the tiny life held carefully in his arms. Small. Fragile. Helpless. Hungry and needing and there. Solidly. In his arms.

He had no idea how long he'd been holding Steven. Only that his very small body was starting to take its toll on his elbows and shoulders and back.

Why was someone who was so small... so heavy?

"Time for

Challenge #00967-B236: STEVEN!

“I may have accidentally sort of adopted five cats.”

(Prompt from CallMeGallifreya on Tumblr)

Baby Rose was investigating the nutritional quality of her own fist again. Connie gently encouraged her to chew on the pediatrician-recommended teether that her mom insisted all babies loved.

Rose gnawed on it once, twice, and then looked up as if to say, Why would you betray me like this, mother? and promptly spat it out.

"Yeah," she sighed. "Try telling Gram'ma that. You try telling gram'ma. No,

Peridot theory (Steven Universe)


Thought I’d contribute. After the last episode (Friend Ship), I noticed something kind of interesting about Peridot: She has absolutely no idea how her own gadgets work.

I mean look. Here she is being completely surprised that her stasis ability even works:

And here she is being shocked by the power of own arm cannon:

And even though we’ve seen her helicoptering around for a while, she still seems to be inexperienced with it:

Peridot and Pearl wild mass guessing

Spoilers, maybe? IDK. Cut anyway

OK so drone!Pearl is pretty much confirmed, now. We know that the Homeworld Gems [HG’s for short] have been making artificial Gems for some significant time.

Pearls, at least Earth pearls, are generated by ocean molluscs from grit or sand that gets stuck inside.

We might be allowed to assume that HG Pearls were generated in a similar manner. Cultured Pearls, if you will. They have some technical knowhow, as evidenced by Pearl building a

Steven Universe - Lion’s adventure

Lion finished his patrol of the city and curled up near the house of the Scion. Soon, very soon, it would be warm in just this spot. Warm was always good. The Scion would need Lion today. Lion couldn’t tell exactly when, but he knew. He was going to be Needed.

And in the meantime, there was sleep.

“Is it safe to just… lie on him like that?”

Lion peeked. The human friend of

Some Loose Onion Translations



He’s certainly strange and a bit of a mischievous kid, yeah, but he’s certainly not malicious and mean.  He just has a different way of communicating than Steven does.

Let me give you some logical explanations as to his behavior so you doods stop calling him a root alien yeah?

Chip Thief- This is probably the least weird thing a kid would do.  He sneaks around and causes mischief to get attention and stave off boredom till
