girly saying

I don’t make commentary posts like this but after the bomb I really want to say something about the interpretation of Lapis’ behavior in Raising the Barn.

I find it ridiculous that there’s lapidot shippers posting images and gifs from the bomb of Lapis desperately trying to taking Peridot with her to space and finding it cute. Like no, the point of the episode was to show that Peridot shouldn’t feel obligated to bend to Lapis’ every will, and what does Lapis do in response when she doesn’t get it her way? Steal all of Peridot’s things, plus the very place she called home, and bounced.

The message this episode SHOULD’VE conveyed is that Lapis isn’t emotionally mature enough to handle an intimate relationship. Peridot was probably one of the closest friends she had on Earth, and even after all that time she still expected Peridot to be the sole benefactor of their relationship. Peridot gives, and she takes. And the moment it stopped being like that, she left Peridot behind and took everything Peridot had with her (minus Pumpkin but she didn’t exactly want to go either, not like Lapis bothered to respect that).

The message is that Lapis can’t handle intimate relationships. She’s hasn’t grown much from the Malachite incident; the only difference was that she forcefully got her way with Jasper by bounding her at the bottom of the ocean and venting her hatred out on her, while with Peridot she was handed her way on a silver platter. But at the end of the day, indirectly or not, they both gave her a sense of control and entitlement.

Lapis can’t hold a healthy relationship (romantic or otherwise), at least not with the behavior she’s expressed towards Peridot in the bomb. She still has loose ends with Jasper, after all– and, in my opinion, until she goes back and fully take responsibility for the damage she left on Jasper (and pushing her away is definitely NOT taking responsibility) she’ll never be able to maintain a healthy relationship with anyone else.

So, please stop making any of her interactions with Peridot in the bomb ’cute’. They were borderline manipulative at best.
