• [During the Gem War]
  • Rose: You’re scamming her?
  • Bismuth: I was thinking more like flat-out stealing from her.
  • Rose: What? No way!
  • Bismuth: Why not? We already stole a Pearl.
  • Pearl: Hey, guys.
  • Rose: No, we didn’t. Pearl's her own gem, she can do whatever she wants.
  • Pearl: I wanna steal.

shat•ter (ˈSHadər) [verb]: to use excessive force in order to break a Gem into several shards, thus dissipating the Gem’s physical form and dispersing their consciousness between each shard (the thoughts of which are only capable of basic thought, like wanting to form or create a bubble).

Shattering is irreversible.

Steven is really going to have to turn inward and face himself. Throughout the show, he’s put everyone else first, and his main goal has been to become the person his family wants him to be. That’s got to shift. He’s got to accept that it’s impossible to fill the shoes of his mother, Rose Quartz. She was always barefoot.

What’s exciting as we get deeper into the show is making him realize that there are the magic Gem powers, but there are powers that people have as human beings to understand themselves and define themselves and make their own choices. It’s an incredible power that we all have, and are often told to ignore or take for granted. Those are the kinds of powers I’m excited to have him learn how to explore.

i dont talk about bismuth enough but i dont understand how ANYONE could see her as cruel or mean or evil? like, lets take what we know about gems being bubbled; we know that their exact last memory is what caused them to be bubbled, so theyre still in the moment when they get UN-bubbled, right? peridots unbubbling proves this much, at least:

based on her finishing the sentence she had been shouting while she poofed, and her continued movement into attacking/defending herself, we can assume as much?

so we know that bismuth, upon being unbubbled, was probably having the memory of rose, one of her most trusted friends and allies, attacking and injuring her severely. but what does she do the moment shes unbubbled, and finds herself in a strange and unfamiliar location (lions mane)?

shes SCARED at first, almost terrified once she comes out, but then she sees steven! and her first response to this strange human is to be so gentle and soft and KIND with him…

it breaks my heart that both fans of the show and the show itself demonizes her. there are heaps and heaps of discussion about how shes evil but i just cant understand how anyone could see her like that and she deserves better. thanks for your time thats all
