the most hilarious thing to me is when people tell me shipping pearl and connie is wrong bc connie is a child. you guys DO realize connie is going to age, right??
we don’t know the gems’ exact ages, but to guesstimate based on what we’ve been told:
greg met rose when he was about 20. rose was 6,000 years old then at minimum, as we already saw her looking like a mature, composed adult in pearl’s projection of her, from ‘more than 5,000 years ago’.
connie meets pearl when she’s about 12 and pearl is, as we know, over 5,000 years old. let’s say she’s 5,500. so when connie’s 20, pearl will be… 5,508.
WHERE’S THE DIFFERENCE, PEOPLE.
