gem life

lennyangel  asked:

I think White Diamond is a fusion of Blue, Yellow and Pink. Which is why we haven't seen her: she can't exist anymore. Anyway, it's just a thought. I know we see blue, yellow and white light when the corruption song happens, so maybe she's just the oldest diamond chilling out back somewhere.

… Okay, I know this is a pretty common theory, because there’s so much supporting it. But when we see gems come together, we automatically think ‘fusion’. Why don’t we look at this a different way?

Maybe White Diamond isn’t a fusion of the three diamonds. But maybe she can only be contacted when all three diamonds are together.

Because she’s in a place sealed by a temple door. A temple door that only reacts to Yellow Diamond, Pink Diamond, and Blue Diamond’s gems.

If White Diamond is the true matriarch, the mother of all gems, the beginning of all gem life … that would be a good reason to keep her somewhere protected from all outside forces – even the other Diamonds – unless all three of them can come together and agree that they need to contact her.

If you could touch, see, and speak with the entity that created your species … wouldn’t you keep them somewhere that even you couldn’t touch them? Because, no matter how power-hungry as Yellow Diamond, or sentimental as Blue Diamond you may be, even you know they’re something sacred. Something much bigger than yourself.

I know opening a temple gate with more than one gem usually means accessing the room of the fusion of those gems, but … I doubt that’s a strict rule.

It’s just interesting that we haven’t seen any other technology like the temple gate since Season 1, despite it being such a clever concept, and despite us seeing so much of Homeworld and it’s technology now. Everything’s opened with codes or keys these days.

I personally wanna see more of the temple gate. To see cool rooms like Smoky’s or Stevonnie’s (if Stevonnie’s is possible).

But I wouldn’t be surprised if the next time we see one, it’s the door to White Diamond.

the internal lore of my steven universe AU where all the gems are cars and all the humans are still humans deepened on twitter tonight

now at this point it’s clear that in this AU part of rose (her gem; her life) became steven and part of her (her body) became greg’s van

steven has wheels and his eyes light up

thanks for reading

Foreshadowing from Steven’s Dream

The foreshadowed moment of Greg’s abduction leads me to wonder whether other details about the movie they watched are also relevant. 

“They only kidnapped cows because they needed milk for their cereal planet.”

And we already know that the gems are running low on resources and their planet is starving. Perhaps, as I’ve been suggesting for a very long time now, the key is to work together. In the same way cereal and milk are complements, the end goal might really be for organic and gem life to co-exist to make a delicious breakfast.

Some SU Stats (as of the most recent Stevenbomb)

1.) The series currently has a raw length of 21 hours and 14 minutes.


2.) 4.2% of the entire show so far was released on January 2nd, 2017.


3.) If you printed every frame of Steven Universe so far on a piece of standard printer paper and stacked them, the stack would be 1108.8 feet tall, or 338 meters.


4.) It is still possible to watch every single episode in one day at full speed. This will stop being possible when episode 134 airs.


5.) The longest vocal song is Here Comes a Thought at 3 minutes and 21 seconds. The longest instrumental is Return to the Beach - Jasper at 3 minutes and 48 seconds.


6.) “Steven” is said 1028 times, “Amethyst” is said 310 times, “Pearl” is said 293 times, and “Garnet” is said 248 times.


7.) Pearl’s gem in real life would be worth approximately $35 million, more than all three living diamonds combined (each being around $11 million).


8.) Lapis’ ocean tower would’ve eradicated most if not all life on earth, and if she had used the entire atlantic optimally, the tower would be 12.05 trillion miles tall, or 2.05 light years.

9.) Mr. Greg is exactly 75% song. The episode with the second highest song density is Mindful Education at 31%.

10.) Season 1 has the highest song density. Song density has consistently decreased every season.


11.) Secret Team is the episode with the highest ratings, at 2.46 million viewers.


12.) In Island Adventure, Steven, Lars, and Sadie were missing for 16 days at the very least.

I spent like 3 hours on this.

doing it for them tho *wipes tear*

Lars’ face when he realized that these Gems, who saved his life, have spent their own lives under threat of execution for being different. Have spent their lives being afraid because of who they are, just like him, except no one was even going to try and kill him for baking or being “uncool” or saying the “wrong” thing.

This is his paradigm shift. You can see it on his face. He’s found a reason to be brave.

Pink is the Tiniest Diamond!

Crewniverse tricked us into thinking that Pink’s palanquin is a lot bigger than it is - same with Pink, herself.  When Blue walks up to her own palanquin, it’s obvious that it’s just the right size for her.

But when she’s next to Pink’s, there are a LOT of optical illusions going on:

  • Blue was kneeling or crouching by it at first, making it look bigger.
  • When Blue stands up, she still looks shorter because she’s slouching.
  • The way the palanquin is leaning makes the roof look higher.
  • The flowers obscure the bottom, making it hard to see just how big it is.
  • The palanquin is on a hill, making it higher, and thus bigger-looking.
  • The legs are extended (the ones on Blue’s were retracted), making it higher.

In the above image, you can already see that Pink’s palanquin only comes to Blue’s shoulders.  Let’s take a closer look and find out just how big it is:

Already we can see that the palanquin is a lot smaller than it initially looks.  Let’s find out how much smaller Pink really is next to Blue.

So it looks like Pink is probably less than half as tall as Blue.  Maybe about halfway up her thigh, give-or-take.  Looks like Pink’s palanquin lends credence to:

  1. The common theory that Pink is the newest Diamond.
  2. A theory I’ve had that the Diamonds, unlike their Gems, grew up.

If so, this would mean Pink is even newer than I thought!  That would explain why Blue (and Eyeball and Holly Blue and even Yellow) seem to act as if Pink was especially precious: She’s just a little kid!

EDIT: (In case anyone sees this.) Nice to see this post getting attention and some good discussion! =D I’ll note that I’m experimenting with how much detail to include in a theory post, and how to best present information. Some stuff has been brought up that I left out on purpose for readability, or because it wouldn’t make a huge difference in the end result. That said:

  • It definitely looks like Crewniverse was trying to make the height difference hard to notice, and the height difference is consistant thorughout the scene.  To me, the scene screams “We’re leaving subtle hints about things we haven’t revealed, again!”
  • Blue isn’t much closer to the camera than the palanquin, so there shouldn’t be too much of a perspective difference.
  • The ‘How Are Gems Made’ Minisode states that Gems suck the life out of the ground to skip childhood (I suspect Peridot will grow).  Gems are probably designed to do that because the Diamonds wanted them to get to work right away.  If the Diamonds don’t have that feature, however, they’d experience childhood.
  • I do think dialogue hints at Pink being a child, rather than a runt.  For example, Yellow calls Pink’s zoo “silly,” suggesting a childish nature.
  • I do think that young Gems and Diamonds would still grow up very, very slowly. Remember that Pink would have to be a MINIMUM of ~1,000 years old by the time she was taken down; probably much, much older, especially if the Gem writing in Off Colors is any indication.
  • I suspect that Blue and Yellow are already fully grown.  Between that, and the previous bullet point, we wouldn’t see any height difference with Blue between The Answer and Steven’s Dream.

I guess I got some good feedback on how much detail to include, and I’ll try to adjust accordingly for future posts. Thanks!
