Off Colors and the Crystal Gems

Quick quick post before sleep - there are some distinct parallels between the Off Color crew and the original Crystal Gems.

First of all, they have quite a similar collection of gem types as they did in the group when Steven was born (a Ruby, a Sapphire, and a Pearl), just in a slightly different formation.

A “defective” former functionary

A “scandalous” outlaw fusion. (Obvious color-scheme overlap)



And a “freak” who came out wrong (interesting that Ame’s whip has two pointed heads on the end…)

Then, you have their “leader,” a much larger, gentle-seeming gem with a mixed, mysterious past…


Yeah, that feels intentional. (Also… “Fluor”ite - sounds a lot like “fleur,” right?)

Hey, can I ask you a question? Sure. How do you know if a guy you’ve been hanging out with likes you? You like him? Uh-huh, but I think he hates me. Ask him. Doesn’t want to talk about it. No guy ever does. How do I know, then? Does he get that look in his eye when he’s with you? What look? You’ll know it when you see it.
