rose diamonds


So I’ve seen a lot of people make the connection that the Crewniverse was trying to parallel Greg and baby steven with the Virgin Mary and Jesus.

I’m not disagreeing with that idea, but after watching the episode again, Greg reminded me much more of… Someone else.

Baby Steven’s design calls a massive amount of attention to the diamond shaped opening on his stomach where his gem is located, directly comparing him to Pink Diamond.

Greg, on the other hand is shrouded in blue and woefully chases after the Crystal Gems, who have stolen his “Pink Diamond” away. He immediately reminded me of Blue Diamond.

I also find it really interesting that Greg is the first human in the show to interact with Blue Diamond, and they openly empathize with each other.

Maybe the relationship between Blue Diamond and Pink Diamond was comparable to one between a parent and child. Maybe Blue Diamond is the heartbroken protector who can’t stop mourning the loss of her child…. Either way, I am certain that there is some sort of parallel between BD and Greg.

Judging by the fact that most of what Steven Uni mother has said was a lie and the event of the shatter of PD is unclear if anyone else was there and the fact of how Rose sword works to poof but not too shatter as which bismuth said. Do you think PD is not shattered and if yes Do you think when Steven finds PD (which is probably in that chest in lion main) That Steven an Half Human half Gem could try to reason with PD? which could be the key to ending the conflict with Home World and Earth.

In order:

1. Considering I’m a fan of the Rose Diamond theory, I’m pretty dang sure Pink Diamond is pretty dang gone because she transcended this mortal plane to have Steven. 

If I had to suggest an alternative to Rose Diamond I would say Pink is dead, basically because it would be incredibly patronizing to show Jasper, Eyeball, Blue and Yellow’s grief and then have Pink pop out of a hat sometime later like “oh hey guys coincidentally I’m fine!”

2. I don’t think Steven’s hybrid nature would be a huge influence in him being able to reason with Pink like she would just tell him to immediately get out of her treasure chest and refuse to talk to him if he wasn’t half-Gem.

3. The conflict between Earth and Homeworld is not remotely that simple. For example, if I’m right on the Blue Fusion theory, and Steven reunites Lapis and her partner to form the real Blue Diamond, it is very unlikely there would just be immediate peace between Earth and Homeworld just because Blue Diamond is like “hey listen Earth is cool now”. Thousands of years of bitterness and trauma do not evaporate overnight because of a single act of goodwill.

4. Bringing Pink Diamond back would also completely defeat the point of her narrative by making it that the Crystal Gems never really did anything that bad- it lets them wash their hands of any wrongdoing during the war when they absolutely did a lot of if nothing else morally shady things. 

And before you say Rose Diamond theory does that too- Rose Diamond theory arguably makes it worse because it means that Rose didn’t commit regicide, she misled both the Crystal Gems and Homeworld, let people grieve her while she was still alive, abandoned a number of people who relied on her and looked up to her, including basically her family, and, basically, a lot of the things Steven already accused Rose of in Storm In The Room

You know, I’ve always been really confused about what the initial point of Rose Quartz’s were to Pink Diamond/Homeworld. Because, really, if the plan for earth was this:

then what is the point of having a gem who has the ability to create life the way Rose is shown to be able to do? And if every other Quartz type we see is built like a freaking body builder (with the exception of the gems from the Beta kindergarten we see in That Will Be All, but according to Peridot nearly all of the gems there “came out wrong” so…) and have weapons that can be used offensively:

then why have this single type of Quartz who looks soft and approachable and give them a shield as a weapon? Then this bomb came along and…I noticed a couple of things about that zoo. The first thing was these flowers on the door.

Five petalled flowers with what looks like the centre of Rose’s gem upside down in the middle. Does that look familiar? How about now.

These look startlingly similar to the flowers Rose grows on earth. On top of this, we have the room where Yellow and Blue Diamond discuss Pink Diamond’s death. When I watched this I couldn’t help but think it was strange that all of the Rose Quartz’s were here for some reason.

Like, if this room was Pink Diamond’s version of the temple, why are there no other gem types anywhere? Surely she didn’t only bubble Rose Quartz’s in her time alive. And if they were put here…in memory of Pink Diamond or something then someone would’ve had to take the time to move all of these bubble gems to this location.

Unless, they were already there.

Unless, the zoo is where Rose Quartz’s used to work.

The zoo is meant to be calming to humans. A place where they live a life of complacency and safety. Would it not make sense that the gems working there would be approachable to humans should they ever need to go into the enclosure? Would it not make sense that they would be able to grow new wildlife should something happen to the ecosystem in the enclosure? Rose Quartz’s would make the perfect guards for such a place.

At least until one of them decided she liked humans a little too much and didn’t want the planet they came from to be destroyed.
