Upon re-watching, I noticed that the scenes from “Rose’s Scabbard” and “On the Run” are almost identical. The parallel continues with the fact that they both over-compensate for their respective insecurities, they both begin the series with low empathy for others, the whole defective issue, and DON’T EVEN GET ME STARTED ON OPAL IN “The Guide to the Crystal Gems” book…
The similarities between Lisa and Archimicharus and Pearlmethyst seem intentional to me, especially because the episodes were released so closely together.
(Ah— am I hyper-aware or desperately reaching? I don’t even know at this point. I’m too deeply invested in these two to resist grasping at straws. They’re endgame, I swear.)
“You stole something precious to me in front of my eyes!”
-Natsu talking about Lucy
“Everyone tells me life is precious here on earth and that means you…”
-Steven singing about Connie
“It’s better when we’re together ”
-Lucy to Natsu
“I want to be a part of your universe ”
-Connie to Steven
Not to mention it being heavily hinted at in both series that both groups are best friends hinted over and over to hold deeper feelings for eachother.
Not to mention both series hinting at the boys and said relationship to have been the girls’ first friend and makes their life more adventurous and wild.
Not to mention the tears both girls cried at the thought of their respective boys leaving them.
