WINNER’s Alphabet Movement: J → JINWOO

“WINNER is a name that helped me realise my dream that seemed unreachable. I am so grateful for the name, because my dream that seemed vague and that I didn’t want to wake up from became real. I just hope that we can bear the weight of this crown of WINNER.” - Kim Jinwoo

Some thoughts on Rose Quartz and Steven

As we go along in the series, more and more of Rose’s character beyond the all knowing, all loving benevolent leader is coming to light. Do I think she’s evil? Not at all. But I do think she was probably guilty of doing the wrong thing for the right reasons time and time again. I also think she had a tendency to be manipulative, although it may not have registered with her that that was what she was doing. Because when it comes down to it, I don’t think she was all that aware of the effect her actions had on those around her. 

I think this is particularly interesting given her abilities. We see that she has a lot in common with what we’ve seen from other Quartz gems in the series this far: strong, impulsive, with a tendency to do things their way no matter what the consequences may be. There are also the abilities that seem to be unique to Rose: her healing abilities and her ability to control organic life. So many times when a character has healing abilities they’re written as empaths or at the very least somewhat empathic. And Rose just isn’t. 

That’s not to say she didn’t care about those around her- she very much did. But I do think that a lot of the time her analysis of certain situations didn’t scratch far beneath the surface. What she was was a brilliant observer and strategist, which gave her the ability to come up with astonishingly deep ideas at times. It also gave her the ability to come up with and enact incredibly effective long term plans, such as the rebellion. And Steven. 

Rose knew exactly what she was doing when she decided to have Steven. I have no doubt that she deeply loved Greg and was curious about the act of carrying and having a child. In fact I’m sure the whole reason Rose came to finally have a deeper understanding of humanity is because Greg was the first human who made her look beyond the surface what a human romantic relationship was. For all that she had loved and fought for humanity before, he was the first one to make her see the human point of view and all it made us capable of. Despite that, she was still an outsider. She could understand it on an intellectual level as an observer, but she herself couldn’t make use of it. But she wanted to. 

I think part of her knew that Homeworld would eventually come back for the crystal gems. She also knew that despite her strength and abilities, it wouldn’t be enough to stop them. She needed someone who could take her abilities to the next level. More than that, she needed someone who would have the ability to be the bridge between not only humanity and gems, but between different factions of the gems themselves. She knew that if she took all of her considerable abilities and combined them with the human tendency towards love and empathy, she would come up with a potentially unstoppable force. Something that had never been seen before with the capability to surpass her own  abilities not only in fighting and strength, but in healing (mental and physical) and diplomacy. If that meant giving up her physical form, it was a small price to pay in her mind. 

And this far, it seems to be working. All of this was a huge weight to put on his small shoulders, but for the most part he’s shown himself to be capable of carrying it. He’s grown so much since the beginning of the series, and he’s now showing signs of being able to do things Rose never could. He’s also showing himself to be the wiser of the two at times. Through all of this, I strongly believe that Rose is still inside observing everything. 

Steven is an excellent teacher, and all the things Rose knew she could never be.
