Rules

Genre

Shared Action: When you find someone working on something relatively simple and honest and try to reach out to them and connect, you can tag that as a Shared Action.
Examples: Steven reaching out to Peedee in “Frybo”. Steven reaching out to Connie in “Sworn to the Sword”. Greg and Pearl bonding while fixing Greg's van.

Shared Reaction: This is just about forging emotional connections through talking and openness.
Examples: Pearl and Amethyst making up in “On the Run”. Steven and Greg in the non-flashback parts of “Story for Steven”. Virtually every interaction between Steven and Lapis Lazuli.

Slice of Life: This is about the moods and emotional experiences of stimuli. Rephrased in English, what that means is that you see or hear or smell something and get lost in the emotion it causes. You see a pretty sunset and go “gosh, that's pretty”. You think about how things went with Lapis Lazuli while looking at the ocean and emote getting kicked repeatedly in the feels with heavy boots. That kind of thing.
Examples: Pearl pointing out the beauty of the Strawberry Fields. Steven shivering with fear at his first sight of Kindergarten. Sadie and Steven being reduced to tears by Rose's tape in “Lion 3: Direct-To-Video”.

Obsessive Action: This is about having an idea and following through a little too enthusiastically because you refuse to let go or fail. These ideas don't have to be bad, and they don't have to end badly, but it should usually be clear that your desire to complete it isn't entirely rational.
Examples: Steven getting so sidetracked by packing that he leaves the Moon Goddess Statue behind in “Cheeseburger Backpack”. Pearl nearly getting herself and Steven killed in “Space Race”. Garnet taking risks with Steven's emotional stability in “Future Vision”. Steven nearly getting himself killed chasing what turned out to be Peridot in the Warp in “Warp Tour”.
