Ah, I know you're on a bit of a hiatus right now and I hate to fill your inbox with my silly lil' thoughts, but I came up with something I thought you'd like - so, of course, Gems tend to be paired up with others, usually ones that fill in for the skills each other tend to lack. But, almost every scene we've seen involving the Homeworld Rubies seem to be with the whole crew or them trying to find the rest. (1 / 2)
(2 / 2) And, yes, it could just be that it’s their job, but I love the idea of them becoming a close group of friends. Almost all their leaders on Homeworld assign them together because they know they do their jobs best (sometimes) when they do. Also, I like the idea of one of the Rubies just flat out denying being with someone else on their missions. “Agate, why did you put this Ruby with the other ones?” “One of them tried to chew my ankles when I suggested one of them leave, they’re fine.”
This is like, my BIGGEST headcanon!! I talk about it all the time with my squad!
There’s just too much hinting toward that being true, y’know? Just look at the way they interact with eachother in ‘HTD’ and ‘B2TM’. They’re the best of friends!
Plus … why stop there? You saw how close the Famethyst were together, and how immediately Amethyst fell in love with them.
Who’s to say all gem types don’t feel naturally attracted to their own type? Rubies with Rubies, Quartzes with Quartzes, Peridots with Peridots, Sapphires with Sapphires …
I really think it’s a canon fact. But I guess we’ll just have to wait and see!
