i am sorry that i am not sorry

I saw some posts today that were claiming that Pearl never says “sorry” and i just had to do it to em you know?? So here’s a compilation of Pearl saying sorry! 

And fun fact–I used my script I wrote to look through the transcripts and found that if you rank the characters in terms of the number of lines in which they say “sorry”, this is the breakdown:

  • 1st place: Steven
  • 2nd/3rd place: Pearl and Greg (tie)
  • 4th place: Amethyst
  • 5th/6th place: Garnet and Peridot (tie)

So next time someone says “Pearl doesn’t apologize when she does something wrong”, whip out this video and remind them that Pearl actually apologizes more than anyone else other than the titular character–she makes mistakes and learns from them, which is why she is a well developed, multifaceted, complex character.

Don’t Resent Me

This is the sequel to Forgive me, which was written for the forgiveness challenge. You have to read that first cause it picks up right where that one ended. I’m not sure it *really* fits with this week’s resentment challenge, but let’s say it does. Also, I used one of the prompts from my inbox for this:

@ladymegg asked for: 43. “I swear to god if you touch me…” This is probably not quite what you imagined? I’m so sorry!

Now on with the actual story which got so long you’re getting a read more.

The woman, William’s new mother, clings to the boy she considers her son. When her arms tighten around him instinctively, Will starts to squirm. Mulder wants to see it as a sign that Will recognizes him, which is silly, or Scully, which seems likely; but in the end, he doesn’t know. Mulder has to stop himself from sprinting over there and grabbing his son out of the woman’s clutch. This is his son, he thinks, but this woman, this Mrs. Van de Kamp, she loves the child, too. And, as much as even the thought burns him, Will must love her as well. Mulder glances at Scully, quickly, before he turns away again. Her face is pale, ashen almost, and fixated on their son. Both her hands are on the car door; she’s ready to run away, to flee. Leave their son here and never talk about it ever again. They’re good at that, after all. He’s brought her here without any warning; he couldn’t have told her, he reasons, because she would never have come had she known. When her knuckles turn white from grabbing the door, Mulder winces and averts his eyes. Forgive me, he thinks again; his forever mantra now. Maybe one day she will. Maybe one day his son will as well.

The thing is that Mulder doesn’t know if he can do this without her. He knows he doesn’t want to. What he’s not sure about, though, is whether or not he’d do it anyway.
