I had an Anon ask about the power dynamic between Holly Blue and the Famethyst, and how I feel it may have changed after That Will Be All. What’s important is that everyone would potentially benefit from it.. especially Holly.
You figure, Holly Blue and the Famethyst have spent the last 5000+ years stationed together in space… alone. That’s a long ass time. We’ve seen how lovable and friendly the Amethysts are, even when there’s nothing to be gained from it. They’re a rowdy group but they’re all genuinely good people. How can anyone, even our Holly Blue, be immune to that irresistible Quartz charm?
She stands firm in her belief that she’s “above” them– not only as their manager in charge, but as a Gem. Her mistreatment of them is her way of upholding the status quo established by Homeworld. She remains cold, upright and bullheaded, ready to pounce at any given moment. It’s all very excessive and unnecessary, but it’s the only thing she knows how to do.
The Amethysts are just so freaking tired.
“Holly oh my fucking god, we’ve known you for centuries, can you please cut this shit already?”
