>>88685136>What the show DOES leave behind is a moral impression on the viewers, and I'm left with the feeling that Kevin is repulsive because Steven felt so. This "moral punishment" is what sticks in the end.
In this case, it is you, projecting as the moral is actually to not let this kind of attitude get the worst out of you. Steven was clearly established as not reacting in a way he should. So, no your notion of "moral punishment" doesn't apply>I do understand the point they tried to make, but the show inadvertedly mixes two dynamics in the same character (goofy ever-loving kid, and a PSA about dealing with harassment/resentment)
The show is about relationship and fit perfectly.>and it ends up looking awkward when contrasted. Kevin ends up a hateable character for almost nothing (and street racing is FAR FUCKING worse than anything Kevin did on the dancefloor)
Like said earlier, Steven has just an as bad Tantrum when he think Peridot betrayed his trust.More angrier than he was against Kevin.
The difference between Kevin and Peridot is that he never show any remorse or change of attitude. Steven get over what Peri did because she actually tried to become a better person.
The difference between Kevin and Jasper is that he never showed a moment of weakness. And just like Jasper, Steven wouldn't hesitate to help him out if he ever was in a bad situation. just like he was ready to forgive Kevin when he believed his sad story.
Steven has always showed compassion whenever he was confornted with someone who was in a bad situation, suffering. You can't really say Steven treated Kevin worst than the gems up until we see Steven Dealing with an actually struggling Kevin.
Kevin never really struggled so far. It's the only difference. And Steven's reaction to him is proportionate to what he did.>just noticed that, u dun goofed
