Daily Stevie: Touching Steven And Garnet Comic


Click here to see the rest of the comic. It contains so much feels!

I really enjoy seeing Garnet act like a mother for Steven (in stuff like this, and episodes like “Garnet’s Universe"), but only because it goes against my expectations of her as a tough, silent protagonist. It’s much more expected of the other gems to act like a mother figure. Pearl is the authoritative-but-nurturing mother figure. Amethyst is the fun-loving mother figure (though she acts more like an older sister). And then there’s Garnet. You'd expect her to act like the cold-authoritarian mother figure, but instead, she’s the comforting mother figure.
