I want Pearl to tell Steven the story of how she met Rose and have the flashbacks show that she’s stretching the truth to look a lot more together and charming and dashing in it than she actually was because that would just be so her
she’s like “the first time i saw your mother, i occupied a very humble place in gem society, but i like to think i handled the encounter with the grace and dignity such an appointment with destiny deserves” and it cuts to just
rose in the distance talking to some other gem and pearl like walking along up on a balcony holding a stack of papers or something for some other gem and she’s literally just STARING AT HER as if hypnotized and then she runs smack into a wall
