Amidst all of this, I am incredibly proud of Amethyst.
As soon as she put the pieces together, she wasn’t angry or explosive - she was hurt and upset by Pearl’s actions, sure, but she understood. She knows what it feels like, to crave that…intimacy? That wholeness? That confidence that must come from fusing, with Garnet especially?
And she’s not tossing blame at Pearl - she’s begging Garnet on her behalf, asking her for mercy, for understanding. It’s very mature of her.
Again, it’s no secret that Amethyst is my favourite of the bunch, but I genuinely believe she’s had the most development so far. She’s still got problems, yeah, but every now and then we get a small moment that goes to show how far she’s come and how much she’s trying.
