Story 1: "Story Time"

Steven plays his video games while Connie and Pearl are talking about books. Pearl says she didn't know humans have such interesting imaginations and that books are like minor aspects of the gem culture. Connie tells her about a book that involves the adventures of a warrior named Mearl who Pearl imagines is like her. Connie tells her that Mearl inherited her family throne and she created a fake identity in order to reunite her people. Connie then mentions that Sir Argarate had to rescue Mearl but Pearl begins to disbelieve Mearl has ever been rescued. Connie then tells her that Mearl's mentor had been banished behind the shadow curtain and Pearl doesn't believe her. Pearl asks why doesn't Sir Argarate just go and save Mearl's mentor. Connie tells her the Shadow Curtain is the only barrier between Mearl's world and the Heavy Sphere and that once you pass it, your body is broken down and only your essences lives. Pearl exclaims that the author doesn't know anything about actual curtains. Connie then says she just wants to finish her story and tells Pearl that Mearl accepts her place at the throne and the story continues with Pea Pod as the main character. Pearl then doesn't want to listen to her story anymore. Steven asks what's going on. Pearl then states that Connie is telling lies. Connie says it's just a book. Amethyst and Garnet then take Pearl to help with their mission and they warp away. Steven tells Connie that Pearl can get too carried away in certain situations. The Crystal Gems then take on a monster but Pearl charges head on and defeats the monster single-handedly with Pearl exclaiming that she challenges Pea Pod to do what she did.

Story 2: "Wild Animals"

The story begins with Amethyst as a dog fighting another dog, then a raccoon eating disgusting food, and finally a mouse in a maze. Amethyst comes back to the temple and later goes with Steven and Connie to the boardwalk where Onion gets some fish from the pet store. He releases them out in the ocean where Steven and Connie try to save the fish because they are fresh water fish and would die in salt water. They succeed in saving the fish and return them to the pet store clerk that sold them to Onion. Amethyst then wonders if the fish would be happier out in the open instead of being in a tank. At night, Amethyst attempts to set the fish free, but is caught by Steven and Connie. Amethyst then turns into a crow and says that she was just trying to set the fishes free. Connie tells her that she can't just do that. Amethyst transforms into a pterodactyl and flies away exclaiming that they're just fish who are stuck in the fish tank and they don't even realize it. Amethyst transforms into a dog hoping that that night will be fun. However her dog friends are asleep, no deer want to mess around with her, and being a firefly is boring. Amethyst later comes back to the temple, however, Steven is asleep. Amethyst ends the story by watching T.V.

Story 3: "Car Trouble"
