PD’s descendant is CONNIE
Wow. Just wow.
Stranded was one of the best reveals I’ve ever seen in a cartoon.
Too bad everyone misunderstood it.
Note first and foremost who we saw playing the role of Yellow diamond in Stevonnie’s dream. Priyanka, not any woman in Steven’s life, but Connie’s own mother. In retrospect, it kind of should have been obvious seeing as this isn’t the first time we’ve seen a maheshwaran woman with diamond-shaped pupils
It’s not even the first time today
And this has been going back as far as season 1A
Note that this isn’t a stylistic thing. Steven’s eyes are stars when he’s excited. Only the Maheshwarans have those lucy-in-the-sky eyes
That’s not the only diamond resemblance either
Nor is it a secret that Connie is a future world-leader
Steven: “Because dad, I can’t stay a kid forever, when Connie grows up and becomes president what is that gonna make me? First Boy?!”
– Steven’s Birthday
You want to know just how un-subtle this is?
Pink Diamond is literally the lord (well, lady) of Rose Quartzes like Steven Universe!
I mean, come the fuck on, look at the facts! Look what this explains.
Q: “Why can Connie fuse with Steven despite being human?”
A: “Because she’s gem-hybrid”
Q: “Why can Connie hold a sword made for an 8-foot woman with super strength?”
A: “Because she’s a fucking gem-hybrid!”
Q: “How did Rose know she was going to die in childbirth?”
A: “Because Connie is a fucking gem-hybrid!”
Edit: To clarify, I don’t think Connie is half-gem or Priyanka is Yellow Diamond. I think that they both are the distant descendants of Pink Diamond and a human. At some point there must have been a (possibly male) descendant who couldn’t pass on the gem through childbirth
Edit 2: Look at this art Steven Sugar (former storyboard artist, basis for Steven and Rebecca Sugar’s brother) drew not too long ago
