cement pearls

how deciding to unbubble bismuth and fix what was done to her wouldve impacted each of the gems char development:

  • garnet learns that rose making her a leader gives her the right to go against rose and that she is a better more considerate leader than her
  • finally cements pearl resolve to move on from rose and stop idolizing her and realize how rose hurt her
  • amethyst feels less shame for not being there during the rebellion bc shes vital in fixing the aftermath. she feels less left out for not having the bond pearl n garnet had with rose, bc that bond was built on a lot of lies and her own connection with rose may have been the most honest. with bismuth around she’d have someone new to remind her of her worth
  • steven ofc gains new confidence in becoming his own person beyond and better than rose. the gems also apologize to him for holding him to her standard and their treatment of him totally changes

I am drowning in pearls, send help.

Steven Universe- Reformed (episode recap)

Another week comes and goes and still no Peridot.

The episode kicks off with Steven’s doing a ‘which character are you?’ quiz for his favourite cartoon, “Crying Breakfast Friends”. Pearl and Greg are fixing up Greg’s van and Steven wants them to take part. Unfortunately as cool as they are, they can’t grasp the appeal of the quiz. I understand your struggle Steven.

Pearl: “Do you understand that cartoon show?”

Greg: “I don’t understand anything anymore.”

I get yours too Dad Universe.

Steven runs to the temple in hopes that he’ll have better luck with his other moms. Amethyst is making a sandwich and but she can’t find any engine oil for it. Why is that always the first thing in the fridge to run out?

He asks her to do the quiz but she also isn’t too keen on the show.

Amethyst: “Who wants to watch a cartoon about people crying?”

anonymous asked:

I can connect with Pearl more so than ever. She literally punched a wall in anger and yelled at people she cared about because someone she loved was gone. That kind of reaction has literally cemented my love for Pearl. But when the portrait fell :O

RIGHT? I seriously gasped when it fell. So shocking and a climax of emotions.

Which also makes me think of later in the episode when Steven falls, how in both instances Pearl makes no move to catch either the portrait or Steven. She just reverts inward on herself- as if she’s already resolved to loosing them.
