They are their own people

In the episode “Keeping it Together”, Garnet sort of confirmed something about Fusions, and it seems to have slipped under everyones radar

Ever sense we first learned about them, we have been wanting to know more and more. At first, it seems like the Gems just fuse into one being, both in mind and body. Yet both Gems remain separate beings, and the fusion seems to be more of a vessel that both control, like a giant robot that has multiple pilots

Then Sugilite showed up. And she revealed something odd. When Garnet and Amethyst fused to form her, one of the first things she said was “I forgot how good it feels to be me”

This made me think, “Are fusions their own people?”. This was reinforced by the same episode Sugilite declared she didnt want to unfuse, and that Pearl stated they might lose themselves in her, and never be able to unfuse.

And when Garnet and Amethyst did unfuse finally, it seemed like they themselves wanted to do so but couldn’t.

This made me think that “Sugilite” didnt want to unfuse. As in, Sugilite herself was a different separate personality, and was in control

Then this bitch shows up and throws a kink in the cogs

Alexandrite, unlike Opal, Garnet and Sugilite, is the most like a vessel. Its literally 4 people trying to work together, yet they total disunion, but they somehow remain fused together for a rather long time when they should have unfused long ago.

Its 4 very different personalities going against each other, each doing their own thing. She has so many limbs, and like, what? 7 eyes?! Theres so much going on in her that its no wonder she cant form a personality, she can stay together without diffusing.

And then theres Stevonnie

Garnet’s OTP (You fucking shipping trash)

A perfect fusion

As in literally. By which I mean, more perfect than Garnet. No really, she is more perfect than Garnet from what I can tell. Stevonnie only has 2 eyes, and 4 limbs. Garnet has 3 eyes and 4 limbs, and the other fusions have similar variations.

It seems Steven and Connie achieved a level of fusion that was even beyond Garnet (assuming Sapphire only has 1 eye)

It was also the first time we got know what was going on inside that noggin of a fusion! Two voices, dancing as lights together.

Then theres Malachite. Reminds me of the Centaurs from Fallout, only waaaay hotter.

((If you’re brave and can stomach a bit of body horror, look up the original Fallout 1 Centaurs, scary as fuck))

What it showed was just how much a relationship can affect the fusion. And it seems Lapis and Jasper have quite the negative one compared to the others here. It also shows that Gems can force one another to stay together in a fusion, making it a perpetual prison for both of them.

THEN THERES THIS FUCKING THING

JOHN CARPENTER WOULD BE PROUD, BECAUSE THAT WAS SOMETHING I WAS NOT READY TO SEE WHEN IT SHOWED

I affectionately refer to it as “Frakengem”, because thats what it is, a monster sewed together from varying body parts after Peridot (or her boss) decided to play God.

Fusing the two Gems themselves together, and not just their lights

(Yes I know its Frankenstein’s monster and that Frankenstein was the Doctor that made it)

So where exactly am I going with all of this?

In the episode “Keeping it together”, Garnet confirmed something I, and many others, had suspected

When you speak to Garnet, you arent just talking to Ruby and Sapphire. You are also speaking to Garnet.

You are literally having a conversation with three beings at once.

Ruby and Sapphire are there, especially after they just fused, but after a certain point, they sort of fade into the a sub-conscience state, and they go into a sort of auto-pilot, like they’re half asleep together. They dont really think apart, they act as one without any thought about it. Thus Garnet is at the wheel.

Garnet is her own person. She is her own individual being.

Think of it as two flames coming together, a candle with two burning wicks. The two flames become one, acting as though there was one, but there remains the two wicks.

Those two flames came together, and formed a new one. And that flame took on aspects of its two components, but it has a mind and will of its own.

A fusion is sort of like how humans have children. But that isnt an accurate term. Its more like they form a new person from their current personalities and how they feel about each other. Thats why fusions vary so much.

So if Ruby were to fuse with a “Different Sapphire”, then the fusion would be different as well.

But my main point is this.

Fusions are their own people, and Garnet confirmed it… sort of.

That means Sugilite is more than just a fusion

Malachite is a person

Stevonnie isnt just Steven and Connie mashed together

And that means Steven is truly something special

He isnt just his mom reborn, hes his own being all together

My problem now with the ship quote is that making it canon brings a whole host of problems where there wasn't. Seeing it in a Thorin/Bilbo light now makes the ship abusive, to the point where I wonder what anyone who could ever like fluff is smoking. Now there's a huge rash of shit with Thorin as a rapist and yes people can have whatever kink they like but to me that is so lazy and offensive. If you like the ship dark, fine. But you can't turn around and OTP it with any happiness. (Cont)

That’s the problem with interpreting that quote as shippy. I understand fandom can’t take flawed characters like Thorin and Thranduil without turning them into abusive monsters. Think about what seeing Thorin/Bilbo as a canon romance implies. It implies canon abusive relationship when it wasn’t previously, and that’s being forced on everyone. Do we need this crap in this fandom too?

Anon, please stop and think about what you’re trying to say to me, and in effect to other Bagginshield shippers.

You are telling me what YOU think the ship is going to look like in the highly unlikely event that at some point in the movie, Thorin and Bilbo throw down and do the nasty. You are trying to convince ME/US about things that we have ALREADY come to consider as shippers.

I think if you took even just a little time to read fanfics and look at fanart of the ship, you’ll see that while we stick to the personalities of the characters, we are able to write them into non-canon situations that does NOT have to include abuse and rape even if Thorin does succumb to the gold-sickness. We have things called “Fix-It Alternate Universes” that range from Thorin being cured forever of the gold-sickness to Thorin, Fili and Kili not meeting their ends at the Battle of Five Armies, to Thorin marrying Bilbo and making him Consort, to Bilbo taking Thorin back to the Shire with him instead because it might be better for him, and so on and so forth. There is STILL a relationship, but none of the rape and abuse and violence and whatever else you fear would exist in an in-character version of the relationship.

What I REALLY want to know is why you immediately think that a relationship with gold-sick!Thorin would lead to rape and abuse JUST because RA said “singularly obsessed with Bilbo.” I said it before, and I’m going to say it again - You do know “obsession” does not immediately connote rape and abuse, right? Not that I’m denying that it can, I just mean to say that it doesn’t have to

But let’s be real here - this ask was NEVER going to go anywhere seeing as you started it with “being canon.” Apparently you haven’t yet quite gleaned that a) we shippers are not idiots, b) we shippers are not trying to foist change upon the ACTUAL canon just to include a homoerotic relationship between the two main characters, c) what we shippers REALLY TRULY APPRECIATE about the quote is that a version of what WE see as shippers rings true for Richard and his performance, and while he doesn’t mean it romantically or sexually, what his quote offers is the possibility of seeing more of Thorin through what happens to him with Bilbo.

Now there’s a huge rash of shit with Thorin as a rapist“ - Honey, please. I have been shipping Bagginshield for at least a year now, and only one in 30 fics EVER include him being a rapist. And you know what, before you came to with your ask, I saw NONE of this “DOES RA THINK THORIN IS GOING TO BE A RAPIST” “rash of shit.”  And while I’m not denying the possibility of it going that way, I also can assume that it DOESN’T end up that way. 

But you can’t turn around and OTP it with any happiness.” - I’ve already said that YES, WE ACTUALLY CAN, because we are creating our fanon!canon around the actual canon and are manipulating situations in the actual canon WITHOUT ACTUALLY CHANGING THE ACTUAL CANON, and we are doing it for us, not for people who don’t want to see it the millions of different ways that we do. But if you’d like ACTUAL CANON EVIDENCE that yes, we CAN turn around and OTP it with happiness, allow me to remind you that I, as a fan interpreting the canon differently from you (apparently), can think that Thorin comes to his senses while the Battle rages on outside his Mountain, and that’s why he EVENTUALLY decides to take his Company and join the Battle, if at least to defend the gold he had come SO FAR to reclaim. In the actual canon, Thorin spends literally his last few breaths trying to redeem himself to Bilbo, who has become a friend, for how he had spoken to him and what he had done while caught in the clutches of the dragon sickness. Sure, serial abusers and some rapists sometimes apologize to their victims only to turn around and hurt them again, BUT AGAIN I SAY, does Thorin have to be locked into that kind of person when he can be other versions?

And what the hell is this supposed to mean? - “I understand fandom can’t take flawed characters like Thorin and Thranduil without turning them into abusive monsters.“ - Look at how you continue to insult fandom and shippers, whether intentionally or not. This also goes to show that you haven’t seen ALL of fandom - people like Loki and Hannibal Lecter have GIGANTIC fandoms, and God knows they’re as flawed as flawed can be, and yet you have pockets of fans who will see them as misunderstood creatures and not even the bad guys when yeah, they are actually the bad guys. So how dare you insinuate that fandom will automatically see a con to a character and peg them as evil and nothing else? How dare you assume that your path of thinking is everybody’s path of thinking? Also, how dare you say that Thorin and Thranduil can be nothing but “abusive monsters” just because they’ve done things that aren’t exactly on the “GOOD” end of the spectrum? In this one sentence alone, you’ve shown just how much or how little you understand of people in general. This is borderline character profiling, which, hey, let’s not get into what else that could lead to.

It implies canon abusive relationship when it wasn’t previously, and that’s being forced on everyone - Pardon my French, but this is a tres stupid argument to make, mostly because of that last part. “That’s being forced on everyone.” Why, because you saw a shippy post in the tag? You think we make shippy posts to force our opinions on non-shippers? How dare you assume we shippers do ANYTHING for non-shippers. People who liked the shippy post clicked “like” or “reblog” on it, people who didn’t, didn’t click anything. They just scrolled past. You are literally the only person to come to with a problem. And I’ve posted our conversations in the tag as well, and again, same thing - people who agreed clicked “like” or “reblog,” others who didn’t, decided not to bother because there’s plenty of other things in the tag to see anyway.

And let me just point out one more thing that you seem to have missed the last time you sent me an ask - There have been Bagginshield shippers since people realized they could ship two characters together. You have been an RA fan for I don’t know how long, but I’m pretty sure the two timelines have been running parallel with each other for a very long time. Wasn’t your blogging life just slightly easier before you came to me and told me you have a problem with us shippers and us shipping Bagginshield? I fully understand that you have a problem with it and that’s why you don’t ship it, that’s why NONE of my arguments (at least until this point) have included me asking you to just TRY. Even in this ask, I’m not asking you to TRY and ship Bagginshield, all I said was that if you took the time to check out just one or two of the fics for the ship, you’d see that there are SO many other paths for that relationship to follow. 

In conclusion - maybe YOU see Thorin as becoming nothing but pure evil once the gold-sickness has taken over, but we don’t. And you are clearly NEVER going to understand that your train of thought is FAR different from ours, mainly because you automatically assume “rape and abuse” in connection with “singular obsession,” while WE see that quote as something to fuel what we already LOVE to do with the ship in our own little world.
