Can you inform me of why hance is ignored because I really have no clue as to why
Why IS Hance overshadoweded tho?
tbh when I made that post I was being super salty, and I really wasn’t expecting it to get any notes lmao. I’m also kinda unsure (tbh I’m baffled) why there are people who can’t come up with why, but I guess I can try to explain.
I’m mulling over the post I just made while looking at the post I put about YD most likely dealing with survivor’s guilt, and it struck me, really, if the Rose Diamond theory is true, that’s an incredible line of parallel in that in some ways both Steven and YD feel like they’re trying to replace the same person.
To the Crystal Gems, Steven feels- to some degree- personally responsible, because he and Rose can’t exist at the same time, that he replaced Rose, and he feels like he has to try and fill that hole. But he can’t. His relationship with Pearl is not Rose’s relationship with Pearl, he doesn’t have that history. He does things without awareness of the others’ history, without a shred of bad intention, but it leaves serious waves.
On the other end… Yellow Diamond is presiding over people like Jasper, and people like Eyeball. Jasper, who only ever means Pink when she says “my Diamond”, who is still deep in grief, who is in some ways disregarding orders and re-prioritizing in every way when it comes to Earth- Jasper doesn’t care about the Cluster, she wants to hunt down Rose, she wants to find closure. Five thousand years of serving under YD and Jasper is nowhere near okay. Eyeball is still beside herself at the chance for revenge to the point that she puts herself in danger by being so determined to kill Steven.
Much like Steven, YD is surrounded by people who are grieving and have been grieving for a while- and she’s the one who’s ostensibly supposed to fill that void.
It seems pretty clear that YD has been trying to engage with Jasper in some way. “Because when you’re at the bottom, you’ll follow anyone who makes you feel like less of a failure.” Jasper is talking about herself here. Someone reached out to Jasper, someone tried to rebuild her confidence after the war. And when Jasper utters that line, she’s cupping the yellow diamond mark that she’s wearing.
Jasper doesn’t agree with YD but she trusts her that when she finds someone that seems like Rose, YD is the one who needs to see it. She preserves Steven, as best she can, as she found him- unlike Eyeball who more or less wanted to kill Steven and bring his gem back as a trophy of her accomplishment. Jasper trusts YD’s insight.
But YD is not Jasper’s Diamond. She can never replace that person to Jasper, and that’s something that hangs over YD’s head. If my theories are correct, and the other two Diamonds are also missing, then Pink isn’t even the only person YD is trying to replace.
I swore I wouldn’t be one of those people that missed pregnancy soon after having their baby but damn. I just looked through my pregnancy posts/bumpdates and it made me miss it so much! The first couple weeks after birth I was like 🙅🏽 NOPE but now I’m like “hmmm I can’t wait until Roslyn is older and then we can start trying for baby #2.” What the heck hormones.
