whats your favorite lapidot moment?
…Aw man, just one?!
Ok, I actually do know what my number 1
is, but there are some “honourary mentions” as well that it seems wrong
not to mention. So, I’m gonna cheat slightly and do a top 5 ;p (I mean, I could even have done a top 10 with how much material there is to choose from lol)
The arm grab in Back To The Moon.
Protective Peridot is just so precious. I love the fact that she was so defensive/protective of Lapis in this scene - putting Lapis’ comfort above all else.
Peridot’s outrageous flirting and gift-giving in Barn Mates.
She wasn’t even subtle, was she?!
Seeing her very clear attraction to Lapis here let me dare to believe that my beloved OTP just might make it in canon…
The entire first half of Beta.
Just seeing them getting along so perfectly with one another, and being so domestic and happy and supportive and cute… I spent the first half of this episode basically hugging myself with joy lol
The dinner table scene in Gem Harvest.
Everything about this was just beautiful. The little looks that they gave one another, the fact that the table was blatantly split down the middle (clearly showing the original Crystal Gems as a separate “family” unit to Lapis, Peridot and Pumpkin), the high five that Peridot didn’t even need to look at Lapis to know that she’d get, the shared sense of humour, the mirroring of their facial expressions…
And finally, my #1 Lapidot moment…
That scene in Barn Mates.
After months and months of having Lapidot as my OTP based solely on a very strong gut instinct of it one day becoming canon, here it was: actual, 100% solid-gold confirmation of the ship, on-screen.
I may or may not have actually cried at this point, as well as rewatching the scene several times whilst flailing at the screen and proclaiming “see?! I freaking KNEW it!!” ;p
It’s an incredible scene… the look Peridot gives Lapis is so typical of someone looking at their crush, the sun comes out as Peridot’s giving Lapis the biggest smile that she’s ever given to anyone – and then Lapis deeply blushes and has to look away.
If that’s not setting up a potential romance, then I don’t know what is.
