Your anger when someone suggests that hw doesn't care always makes me happy bc it also frustrates me when people do that. also you posted earlier that there was no Peridots before the war and I want to know why you think that? Because I thought that Peridot calling herself an "era 2 Peridot" indicated that there were/are era 1 Peridots.

(I’m gonna split this ask into two parts, and talk about Peridot in a different post, because I kinda got… on a roll with that first topic, ha ha)

I guess it just bugs me because… Hey, remember when people kept trying to say how Jasper had no redeeming qualities and I should give up on her getting a redemption because she’s an Objectively Terrible Person with no redeeming qualities or reason to feel bad for her?

Remember how Earthlings states she’s a child soldier born halfway through the war dealing with unhealthy grieving and some seriously messed up interpersonal skills related to the fact that she thinks of herself as unlovable and unworthy of being helped, and thinks that she deserves to suffer?

Remember how she was horrified by the Crystal Gems taking Peridot’s enhancers away, right in the face of her whole “The Weak do not deserve to live” and stated that this was an infringement on Peridot’s dignity, which if she really exclusively and always believed her spiel about people deserving to suffer, she wouldn’t care about?

Everyone was convinced Peridot would be terrible and not redeemed, Catch And Release happened. Everyone believed the same thing about Jasper, Earthlings happened.
