Pink Diamond’s Shattering staged by other Diamonds?
So, I’ve been
reading @anythingstevenuniverse‘s post about wheather or not Rose Shattered Pink
Diamond. The blogger pointed out some really interesting facts/theories.
1) Pink diamond might have been the youngest, and
deffinitely have been the least powerfull diamond. The moonbase mural clearly
shows that Pink Diamond was in possesing of only one planet, Earth.
2) Ruby Eyeball, in episode “Bubbled” says that
she has seen Rose shattering Pink Diamond “with my own eye” AND @anythingstevenuniverse
rightly points that Eyeball has, in fact, only one eye and might not get the
concept of depth quite right. Although, there is no proof of that theory in
neither of third seasson’s final episodes, there is such a possibility.
3) In “Monster Reunion”, Centipeetle, when asked
who did this to her, draws the symbols of only three Diamonds, implying that
the Pink Diamond might not have had anything to do with gem corruption.
What I am up to with all this is: we don’t really know
what were the exact
circumstances of Pink Diamond’s shattering. We know Rose was there, and she
might have been the only Crystal Gem present in that location, AND we know that
Eyeball Ruby was there as well. But, what if there had been also another gem?
Somebody from other Diamond’s court?
Let me point out one more thing. It’s not hard to
notice that Diamonds surround themselves(or maybe even create) with gems being
in the fashion of their own court, which are kind of reflections of their
personalities. For example Cold Blue Diamond and Saphire, Pragmatic and
hot-blooded Yellow Diamond and Peridot.
assumed that Pink Diamond is the youngest of Diamonds. It is fair to assume
also that Rose Quartz was “designed” by Pink Diamond, which can imply that it was Pink Diamond, who gave her all the love and kindness as well as the healing powers.
Eyeball Ruby says that she heard “the rumors” about Rose’s abilities. This
might mean that Rose was one of the very first Pink Diamond’s Quartzes.
With that being said, lte’s finally get to the point
and imagine a situation like this: What if Pink Diamond’s ability to feel
empathy (which might be why Jasper loves her so much) bringed her to
shattering? Maybe she met with Rose to pertract, but other Diamonds saw a
weakness in that and decided to betray their own sister, because they feared
she give up not only on Earth but also on other planets.
There might have occured some sort of fight between
Rose and Pink Diamond (Pink D was still a Diamond, after all) and that’s where
the real betrayer comes in and shatters Pink Diamond by surprise. From
Eyeball’s perspective it might have been looked like some loyal gem tried to
protect their Diamond from shattering with her own body, but failed.
Rose, shaken by the course of events, flees. Sister’s
assasination gives other Diamonds perfect excuse to use the gem weapon in order
to silence possible inconvenient whitnesses, end the rebellion and test the new
technology, all at once.
This of course doesn’t explain why didn’t Rose said
anything about Pink Diamond’s assasination to Pearl or Garnet. However, Pearl
and Garnet do not give away information, about painfull events of the war,
easily. They certainly do know more than they say but, for whatever reason,
choose to remain silent.
