Steven Universe-Cheyenne by AMX-269 Steven Universe-Cheyenne by AMX-269
The title comes from the Jason Derulo song. This piece came to me after hearing the song and watching the music video. The more I thought about it, the more I started fitting the lyrics to the relationship between Steven and Lapis.

Okay, just hear me out on this one. The song itself is about a man who is used to casual flings with women becoming blindsided when he realizes that he's actually in love with one of his flings. Some of the lyrics include "I can't stop thinking about you; all I ever wanted was some fun." During the earlier episodes of "Steven Universe," it's pretty clear that Steven doesn't yet understand the magnitude of what being a Crystal Gem means; he seems to think it's a big game. But as time went on, you can see Steven fully realizing just what's at stake for not just him and the Gems, but for Earth as well. And of course, during that time, Steven meets Lapis. Sure, Steven didn't realize that not all Gems are friendly until Peridot arrived, but Lapis was his (and our) first real taste that something big was happening outside of Earth.

And now the story of Steven and Lapis has become more complicated: Steven has to deal with the fact that a Gem he loves (as a friend, of course) is stuck at the bottom of the ocean indefinitely. And only time will tell how it will all end.

On a final note, I'm really happy with how the water coming out of Lapis's mouth turned out. Also, the three Crystal Gem puppets in the background represent three different episodes. Can anyone guess which ones?
