ok but please google sasu/naru and tell me they are not the original lapi/dot. help lapi/dot is so generic why, the grumpy cold colors theme character with a happy and excited warm color theme one. its so generic I can name 5 gay ships with this theme from the top of my head. I finally pinpoint why i was disappointed with lapi/dot despite not even being an ame/dot shipper or anything= its too generic.
The fact that Peridot never used to be so happy, excited, and upbeat, and Lapis wasn’t as much of a grumpy, edgy teen character, almost makes it seem like they changed to fit this terrible ship stereotype. They had more potential when their characterisations were more interesting.
