Steven: Gems shouldn’t fight each other.  

I wanted to make this gifset because, with every episode that passes, I am more and more convinced that Steven is, step by step, becoming a true leader. Like Rose, Steven sees beauty in everything, and his human upbringing makes him selfless, empathic and caring, and every Gem he’s had the opportunity to influence responds to that. To me, the episodes where Steven spends the day with other humans in Beach City aren’t at all fillers, they are part of Steven’s growth and upbringing and in each he learns something. He wouldn’t be the person he is without Greg, Connie and everyone he’s around. And I think Rose maybe knew that, she knew what Steven would become was exactly what they needed, what Gems lacked of. And maybe, when she asked Steven to “take care of them”, she was being more general than I initially thought, and was asking him to make his own place among them and guide them. As a human. And as a Gem. Anyway, even if I’m not correct, what I’m sure of is that, if things go wrong, these Gems here will stand by him. Because of who he is. Because of what he’s becoming to them.

Fusions are Relationship Types

After We Need to Talk, I couldn’t help but notice how the fusions of Steven Universe mirror different types of romantic relationships

External image

Opal is an On and Off Relationship

It’s hard for Pearl and Amethyst to form Opal because they’re constantly butting heads. Opal is a desirable fusion for the two but she can never keep it together long enough to reach a common goal between her parts.

External image

Sugilite is Co-Dependence

The first words that Sugilite utters are “It feels good to be me.” Sugilite feels euphoric when she’s herself but is also a destructive force to those around her. Regardless, Amethyst and Garnet have trouble unfusing because of Sugilite’s power over them.

External image

Alexandrite is Hooking Up

There is no passion or capatibility expressed in Alexandrite’s formation. She also can’t handle being together for very long.

External image

Malachite is an Abusive Relationship

Lapis is practically coerced into forming Malachite. With Malachite, there is no common group between the two within her. It’s clear to everyone who sees her that the relationship is toxic to both: For Lapis because Jasper physically abused and threatened her and for Jasper because Lapis intends to keep her as her prisoner.

Rainbow Quartz: Unreciprocated Love

Pearl was willing to give up her life for Rose but Rose didn’t have the same dedication to fulfill Pearl’s wants and needs. Pearl forms Rainbow Quartz with Rose out of her insecurity within their relationship. To the eye, Rainbow Quartz seems stable and is the most conventionally attractive fusion we’ve seen thus far. However, it’s clear the two don’t see their relationship eye-to-eye.

Stevonnie is the Beginning Stages of a Relationship

Stevonnie is awkward, doesn’t take fusion seriously, and just wants to have fun. At the same time, she is full of doubt anduncertainty. She looks completely stable but is just starting to test her own boundaries. At the moment she doesn’t seem ready to be one entity and feels more comfortable as her individual parts.

External image

Garnet is a Stable and Functioning Relationship

Ruby and Sapphire form Garnet with ease. They prefer being viewed as one entity instead of their individual parts. Their personalities are so aligned, Garnet never sounds like two individuals that take turns talkin. Garnet is also better off as a fusion rather than separated. As a fusion, she has a heightened sense of awareness and stregnth that her individual parts do not.
