Richonne Positivity

I was thinking of the small moment in Rick’s flashback sequence from the premiere: The scene of Michonne smiling when she saw his clean-shaven face. You know the one:

For that moment to stick out in his mind it must’ve left an impression on him; an impression deeper than any of us realised at the time. Sure, we all squealed and flailed and thought it was cute, but imagine what Rick was thinking.

This stoic, serious, and oft times stern woman was left smiling brightly because of his face, of all things. He played it so cool when she beamed at him like that; offering a reply and then walking away.

Imagine the fluttering that would have been in his stomach! How his face would have grown warm. How his legs would have felt weak. The moment was not of great importance to the story line. Yes, it set up the Richonne toothpaste moment that was to come, but it wasn’t a huge scene in the larger narrative. I am of the belief that it was a small intimate moment where Rick could appreciate Michonne’s beauty as she reacted honestly to his.

Here's an idea for Jasper: Jasper is a were-corruption. She will revert between her humanoid and monster form depending on her emotional state or it'll just be random. Steven hinted at a corruption reverting between its forms and running from itself in "Gem Hunt", he called it "half corrupted". This was foreshadowing and they will apply the were-corruption idea to Jasper as she caught it second-hand from a fusion instead of Diamond song-Also I wanna see Jasper howl! What do you think?

I’ve seen a couple of people mount that theory but I don’t really like it, personally.

I understand the concept of shapeshifitng is cool and werewolves are cool, but my issue with it is I don’t think it really works with how corruption is used narratively.

Corruption in the narrative is in some ways a reflection of the depersonalizing status of “the enemy”- literally, these people, because of a war, are made into monsters and their understandable, often fearful reactions are made out to be hostile, malicious actions. They’re people who are stuck in the worst of their trauma to the point that it rules them and everything that they do, limits them to whatever pattern they can hold onto to cope.

In that sense, having someone fluctuate between presenting as more or less corrupted wouldn’t indicate they were stable. It would indicate they were still in a very bad place- like what it did with Centipeetle in Monster Reunion. Centi has a lot of work to do in her healing process; she’s only partway there and because of this when she hits her stress limits, she, seemingly painfully, starts falling apart and going back to bug form. 

Furthermore, Jasper’s corruption in particular is not very livable. Jasper’s struggles are self-loathing and a fear of the lack of control that she felt being born in a chaotic mess of a time. Her corruption takes away her eyes, leaving her blind, and it also twists her form into something else out of her control. This isn’t picking at her insecurities in the way that will move a plot- she told another corrupted quartz that this happened to them because it’s what they deserved. Jasper saddled with corruption, trying to go halfway or otherwise- would just internalize it as What She Deserves and sink into learned helplessness.

It’s also noteworthy that Steven was wrong about that being the source of the tracks, and this was coming from Steven, who doesn’t know really know how corruption works, so I wouldn’t put him as a solid, reliable source.

TL;DR I think people are jumping onto it because it seems cool but I really don’t think it fits into the narrative. Crewniverse could probably swing it, but if they did, I would assume that it would be an interim step to clearing Jasper’s corruption entirely.

Dawn couldn’t look him in the eye. She barely knew how to bring this up. But lately all this passive agressiveness, all this hiding her emotions under layers and layers of tough love, and I’m too cool to care, was wearing on her.

“Did you ever think about us? Do you? Or were Don and I… just mistakes… kids that you didn’t know, and oops too late to find out…”

Move on, leave, run away, escape this place… but don’t forget about me, about us, about this town. Always remember where you come from so you can appreciate how far you’ve come.
