"Open Book" is the 46 episode of the first season of Steven Universe, and the 46episode overall. Steven and Connie want a new ending to a beloved book. Popular pages. Breaking Down the Future of the MCU. Fandom. Rose Quartz. Fusion Gems. Steven Universe (character). Gems. Open Book” is a bit of a comedown from last week (even including the relatively quiet episodes), but it's important that it, or an episode like it.
It's not really capable enough for a real simulation, it's overly concerned with pleasing its user, and it seems almost impossible to separate fantasy from reality once inside. It's reaction to being told to stop doing what Steven wants is especially disturbing, and is the first real indication that there may be some form of consciousness enslaved to operate it. I have to wonder what exactly Rose used the room for. She's been described as a warrior and tactician with a strong connection to life, so why have a room of pure fantasy? Encyclopedia at AM on March 20, [ 1 favorite ] Well, tacticians need to train for future situations, so maybe it's like the Danger Room for the X-Men. Connie's outfit was so much cooler than Room!
And I still fight that one, not because I need people to like it. Season six is a hot mess, but I am still astounding at how many people just flat out did not understand what I thought was a clear-cut description of the whole thing. This is what we do.
There are entire websites devoted to discussing works of art in this manner. But I know that plenty of you find an allure in fanfiction because it allows fans and consumers to re-write, re-cast, and repair. So what happens when a creator does something that feels completely at odds with their own work?
Oh, we can get angry — and trust me, I have yelled at many a convention over the past year about this garbage — but what of this specific thing Connie speaks of? She invested herself in this series; is it fair to feel betrayed by it? I suppose that has to be something we determine on a case-by-case basis.
Connie wanted an ending reflecting the anti-authoritarian tone and nature of the series; Steven, on the other hand, loved the wedding because he valued the emotional relationship that the two main characters had.
Thus, the ending served two completely different purposes for these people. Rose's room is bizarre but I have theories about it.
I wonder if it's only the way that it is because Steven's still changing and growing? Maybe when Rose was around, it was what she'd grown into needing it to be, and it reverted back to cloudy purposelessness when she left? As a storytelling device it has holodeck level problems. How dangerous is it, actually?
Are there safety protocols at all? What are its physical limitations?
Obviously, it's limited by what the animators can draw, and Steven needs to be able to think it up, but the more Steven sees and learns, the more he can imagine. And with his life, that gets pretty intense pretty fast. I guess things made in it can't leave the room.
But they really seem to have physical weight and volume and presence inside of it.
If it were anyone other than Steven who had control over it, things would get terrifying immediately. Long story short, don't imbue your fantasy machine with the power to oppose you. The other Crystal Gems use their rooms to keep their stuff and generally relax in private, which I guess is exactly what a human uses their room for when they have roommates. Thing is, Rose had a different place to keep her stuff, one which surely existed prior to the temple's construction.
Another thing about the temple is, as we see in the test it can be reconfigured as needs arise, so it's possible each room started out like Rose's but as Misu suggests it is molded by the desires of its owner.
