Another (more serious) Pink Diamond theory Pink's not a moody teen Diamond in this one, she's a scientist and unsung hero of the rebellion.
Every thing Blue Zircon said is true.
Or at least, mostly.
Who has the authority to get near a diamond without anyone of her guards around her but another diamond?
It was definitely one of the Diamonds. It wasnt blue shes been grieving for years and (since ive been watch the show recently) she’s very “Adrian Monk” about it. Its clear that Pink’s death and bringing her murderer to justice is her obsession.
That only leaves Yellow and White.
Yellow knows something. If she wasnt the killer then shes DEFINITELY involved. Her attitude was of someone who had something to hide. You can point to her emotional breakdown in that’ll be all as “she misses pink, she didnt do it” but people have been known to fake emotion to gain freedom, thats not saving her.
Then there’s white. We know she exists, we know shes there, but she hasn’t been revealed. We know nothing of her personality so we cant even say anything about her.
It had to be one of the two. But what was the motive.
The motive was earth look at how pink holds her planet in then mural. Shes holding it in reverence. Like in religious art of the adoration of the eucharist. Or like something to be marvelled.
It’s not a show of power for one who sees themselves superior to hold something above themselves in such a manner. I lack the words to explain it but it feels more like lifting up of something more important to oneself. Her body is otherwise in a triumphant pose but its doesnt come off as a victory pose.
I dont think her goal was to destroy the planet.
Blue said “yellow said” there was a geo weapon growing in the planet that would destroy the planet
This wording is peculiar in that why was she getting this information from yellow? Youd think she’d know this already… so why did she say “yellow said”?
Heres my theory:
When Pink emerged, she was expected to fulfill the role of the other Diamonds.
Maybe shes present at another planet conquering to get the gist of what to do before doing it herself. This planet’s life isn’t sentient, shows no form of higher understanding. So she doesnt feel so bad.
Maybe shes there for a couple more before being trusted with doing it herself.
They find earth.
It shows more promise than most of the other planets and its prime for many reasons. They get to work planting the material… the area in which they’d settled was just full of animal life…
five hundred or so years go by, the first gems emerge and add to her army.
The first gem structures are rising. everything is going according to plan… until one day a group of humans come by to investigate as there seems to be alot of activity going on near their settlement. They look different than the other animals. They can communicate in language with grammatical structure they seem to possess the higher understanding the rest of the life seems to lack.
She takes some to study. They die under her care. She sends out gems in small teams to study the plant life or observe the settlements because the strange animals are dying they seem to need things the gems cant provide.
They study the corpses of the “strange animals” and determine that they contained minerals and metals found in the earth and try feeding them what gems are made of carbon, calcium potassium, magnesium (surely a carbon based lifeform would need these things to survive. But that doesn’t work. While these things are present in their bodies, they dont recognize that they dont obtain them in the same manner as gems do in their kindergartens.
Pink begins making an effort to study these creatures. Blue finds out but isnt particularly interedted. Similar to the way an older siblings are only interested in what their younger sibling is into because its making them unusually quiet, Blue says nothing about it. Maybe even helps by offering suggestions.
Pink sends out a team to get detailed information on what these creatures need to surivive. Clearly theyre different bring back information. What’s so different about them than us? How do they possess minerals that make up gem life if theyre not the same as gems?
They obtain information about the creatures’ needs to sleep and eat they find. They find out that they reproduce through a means that seems both pleasurable and dangerous. As the smaller ones, the females can die in the process of pushing out smaller versions of their species.
The creatures are virtually defenseless when their bodies are invaded by micro organisms.
They find out the hard way that the strange animals eat some plants and avoid others. they study the plants and determine they eat. They learn that water is essential to their survival.
And they have civilization. They are more advanced than the other life and even use some of the other life to work for them. They have a hierarchy. Leaders, soldiers, servants… They are no different than the gems.
Then pink tries again and observes this for herself. She creates an environment to house the nongems that would provide their needs and prevents them from dying in a way that can be avoided. She calls for reinforcements to run the facility and tend to the humans.
The reinforcements are the Rose Quartzes. They have shown promise in healing gems perhaps they could heal the humans should they injure themselves . They treat them only when its necessary. Treating them as one treats fish in an aquarium.
To pink and some of her closest members, it became clear that the people weren’t born to serve a purpose. Gems are created with a specific purpose. They know what theyre supposed to do from day one. These people are not. They are born and serve NO fucntion what so ever and must be taught to do everything from walking to holding a tool. When they grow to sufficient mental and physical development they can CHOOSE to serve a function. They see big ones choosing to be soldiers or farmers and small ones choosing to be cooks. And they dont ALWAYS serve a function in their overall society. Other than food production, soldiers, and obtaining materials for builders to build with and leaders there are very few functions in the society. They observed that there were people who chose NOT to serve a function.
After some time of everything running smoothly, it dawns on her that every thing on the planet is connected. The life is connected. And if she continues her work as a diamond she destroys that life. Removing the resources will make a planet on which these creatures cannot survive.
She sends a message to the others with her suggestions to either back out entirely or not go so deep with the development. Blue may have never had a preexisting civilization on any of her planets. But Yellow and White have… yellow and white have the most planets. One of them was bound to be opposed.
Which one? We dont know yet.
This causes the diamonds to come to earth and have a meeting. Pink presents her information and suggestions and White, the leader, rejects them outright. Yellow and White leave, Blue stays to make sure Pink does her job
Now my my mostly crack theory about pink doing it on her own comes into play.
Pink has come to the conclusion that these people need to be protected. They had choices on their planet. This was there planet these people, primitive as they were, weak as they were had something that Pink Diamond herself lacked. A choice.
She talks one of the soldiers with whom she’d come close into helping her. She began telling gems who would listen that they didn’t HAVE to be what homeworld made them to be. Like the humans they could choose. But the other Diamonds wouldn’t allow them to be this way. They were expected to follow the order or be without a function and shattered. They would have to fight for it.
Rose’s rebellion never made sense to me. How did she go from having two to so many gems to be enough of a threat for the Diamonds to feel it necessary to corrupt and/or shatter the remaining of BOTH sides THEN to plant a geo weapon? How could that happen without funding? Funding doesnt have to be monetary. It could be morale it could be support.
Where were her agates? Her sapphires? Diamonds have armies at their SNIFFLE, you don’t go from 0-thousand year war warranting destruction of your enemies’ own troops without top level support.
Pink Diamond waged a war more fearsome than any had ever seen. But not everyone knew it was pink in the background. Bismuth speaks as if she were one of the firsts. This points to the possibility that she joined but there were things going on beyond her knowledge. She was apart of the circle but not the circle that knew if Pink’s involvement. Same with Garnet. Though she may have known but its not at all guaranteed that because she’s comprised of a sapphire she would be allowed into pinks entourage/war council.
Pink realized her army wouldn’t be enough she needed more, lay low for 500 years while the new soldiers ripened. All she needed was time the war broke out. Its her versus the soldiers on the planet. She wins but then blue is ordered to attack. Blue is losing but shes not really putting up an effort pink is her best friend, her sister or something gemeticially similar to that concept. She doesn’t want to fight her.
Pink forces Blue to retreat or Blue is called off, it doesn’t matter she leaves.
Yellow and White confront Pink in battle. It becomes clear that Pink is getting help. Her tactics are nothing the diamonds and other gems are accustomed to.
Pinks army are getting tactical advice from the indigenous people of the planet…
They call a truce allowing for the three of them to meet privately.
Pink refuses to back down. Shes not going to give up earth without a fight. Shes not going to destroy a civilization and a thriving people because they think themselves superior. Rose and pearl come running in to see where pink diamond was. They lacked the ability to take out a diamond, but a DIAMOND fighting a diamond… TWO diamonds on one?
Thy run in time to see one of the two diamonds poof then pink diamond. Rose and pearl, with Garnet and some other gems come in with the intention of defending the poofed, Pink theyre defeated and one of the Diamonds shatters pink.
Or they run in in time to help, the theory being that her element is fire. She shoots a fire ball at one of the Diamonds. They doge and rose deflects the blast with her sword or shield, but the diamond dodges Pink is slow on the uptake and is hit with her own blast.
Either way the blame is shifted to Rose.
The betas have emerge but they are told that rose shattered their diamond.
The troops who were there on the side of Pinks cause change alliance. The troops who were there to witness it, tried in vain to explain what really happened.
Gems fought all over the place for the next 500 years the war waged on. Despite not having their true leader her front gem kept up the fight until the end. Blues troops fought with renewed vigor demanding revenge after being told the story from the “winner’s” side told that a Rose Quartz had shattered Pink with a sword.
A ruby, the lowest end of the soldier gems lacking sufficient logic but were good fighters, ran in at the wrong time to see what she saw to be Rose Quartz attack Pink Diamond with her sword.
No real details were given and that was enough. Green Zircon spoke this much as if it were enough to condemn someone. No evidence only the propagated rumor.
Yellow was fine with this. This propaganda verdict was enough. She didn’t care about the details she just wanted it to be over with. She thought so lovely of the gems in her/their service that shed never anticipated that the event could be speculated about.
Steven didn’t know the particulars. He made it up as he went Blue recognized the bullshit and wanted to know what she had been told. Confirm it. She knows that this kid IS Rose but she also understands that he’s NOT.
Nearly 6000 years and never once has she thought of these things herself… or perhaps she had and she’d dismissed them.
I predict she will corner steven or his dad or someone understanding the particulars of stevens existence at some point and rather than attacking will give them a chance to explain. The truth will come out.
I truely believe Steven and Blue Zircon (unintentinally) chipped the authority for a second time. I believe Blue will be redeemed and take up Pink’s old mantle.
Curious as to how many gems remain lacking a functional place on home-world.
My theory is that this next war, the gems take it to homeworld.
Lars, for the time being, is stuck on home-world. This is an undeniable fact. Rutile, Rhodinite, Flourite and Padparascha are most likely not the only ones in that kindergarten or left on the planet.
If this is the last season like a lot of people speculate, then Steven has to figure out away to heal the corrupted gems figure out a way to extract the cluster without destroying the planet and threaten home-world into leaving the planet alone, and leaving the gems who choose not to remain apart of home-world society to come to earth.
Peridot may need her limb enhancers i don’t know if her robonoids were something she kept on her or if they were something she would need to obtain from home-world but the galaxy warp could be fixed a second time using lars and lion and peridot’s expertise. This will be how lars gets home. Or he finds the topaz(p) and convinces them to get them off the planet.
But i feel like steven gets the gems back to normal and uses lion to transport them all to home-world either as gems or as full bodies. And the second war takes place on home-world
Theres alot to look forward to in the next season.
Ive heard nothing about a season six. If you have tag me in a link… but this feels like were getting close to the finale. Things are at the ultimate level of hype i predict a White Diamond appearance by the end of the next hiatus. If were looking at then final season, or a name drop if season six is confirmed but not yet announced.
If a season six AND seven are confirmed then I predict Blue shattering Yellow herself and turning her sights on White as for having a hand in Pink’s shattering.
I feel like Yellow will be out of rage. It will be sudden and out of the ballpark something no one could foresee, not even garnet as it’s seen that sudden acts are hard for garnet/sapphire to see. (I actually believe that Padparascha will foresee jt. Like legitimately foresee this event, idk why, just a strong feeling i have) But White will be spared and bubbled out of Steven’s mercy. They will be working with her by this point and will listen to steven as he tries to talk her down from shattering White. Or yellow is spared (and bubbled) and white s shattered.
But this is ONLY if we get a minimal of two more seasons out of the deal if we dont then things are wrapping up soon and quickly.
If we get eight seasons then its revealed home-world is fighting a war of their own. And maybe the CGs help out or make between them.
Sorry this was so long.
This was originally going to be a comment on facebook but theorizing juices started flowing and i couldn’t contain it.
I typed this up on my phone again (THREE HOURS OF THUMB AND INDEX TYPING) so forgive any errors and thoughts that go nowhere. (I *think* i closed up topics… dont quote me on that)
Wed, May 31 2017… in case ANY of this comes true. I doubt it… personally i want the semi crack theory that pink just wanted to be left alone in her average home but was in the twilight zone being forced to live a life she didnt want because she wanted to sleep and look at bugs rather than run a GEmpire. (Its what i would do tbh)
