erika i don't understand

Hey, I’m just a little confused… How come Steven befriended the random Gem monster that attacked his home from episode one, but indefinitely bubbled an original Crystal Gem that attacked him in a moment of confusion? Especially since they played the corrupted Gems as unaware of their own actions? What makes Bismuth, a freedom fighter, and close friend to the CGs, so much worse than a total stranger??? Centi did fight for Homeworld after all, so don’t come to me with the “she wanted to kill and that’s bad uwu” bs either. Tell me why. Because when I say it’s because Bismuth wasn’t thin and white coded I’m “”“reading too much into it”“”. So what’s up?

I am trying to figure out photoshop, and let me tell you, it is a mystery wrapped in an enigma and all bundled up in a conundrum.

And now, the weather.
