Truth – Week of The Lustrous Episode 11 & 12

Happy Holidays fellow readers! There were some aspects of episode 11 that left me feeling a bit unsure of how to tackle it. It seemed best to the final two for one big one.

I can’t help but wonder if this…

Beast – Week of The Lustrous Episode 10

Beast – Week of The Lustrous Episode 10

Yikes… It today’s episode, some theories surface about Phos’s personality being slowly displaced. Similar to what I talked about at the end of the last article. The topic is merely broached before moving on. For now, it’s just background material; an existential threat that may effect Phos later. Bort isn’t the one to directly notice this. Instead, she’s sizing Phos up for other reasons. Bort is starting to see the kind of determined hardness in Phos that…

Molt – Week of The Lustrous Episodes 8-9

Two episodes as promised! We’re starting off with Episode 8 first. I’ll try to breeze through them, which isn’t indicative of how I felt about the episodes, just touching on the most important parts. They were both great FYI. So Phos is down two arms, which leads to some hasty improvisation on Kongo’s part. The Chord Shore, as it’s called, is where all the gems were born; a massive rock fault that upends crystalized organisms from…

So of the two things that could have happened, Amethyst not dying was the best. And not just for the…

Speed – Week of the Lustrous Ep 6

I was coming up to the last three minutes. I was almost about to praise this show for having some restraint not diving into dramatic moment after dramatic moment… but we can get into that later. So Phos’ new legs come as a surprise to everyone. Apparently, the agate fusing into her body being stronger than her base material, Phosphorite, means that her potential combat ability is becoming closer to that of a gem with…

The Lunarians want more…
