Unpopular Lapidot Opinion

Don’t get me wrong, I’d be so freaking happy if Lapis and Peridot were to fuse. And yes, it is on my wants list with SU. But if it were not to happen, I wouldn’t be pissed off at Rebecca Sugar and the Crewniverse ((like some of the lapidot fandom says)). Like tbh, I’m actually okay with just the cute little moments the two have on screen. I mean yeah, I’d like to see them more often ((I mean, the last episode we saw of them was Room For Ruby which aired March 10th)) but, they don’t need a fusion to show that they trust each other.

Okay, so the newest episode of Steven Universe made me re-evaluate Navy’s character a LOT, particularly her behaviour in Hit the Diamond. Originally I thought she was just flighty and oblivious, but like…

I think it was an act here, too. I think she knew DAMN well our Ruby didn’t belong with the rest of them and something was up, but she smugly pretended otherwise because…Idk, she thought they’d gain more information by playing along? Or maybe she’s a true Agent of Chaos and she just wanted to see how things would play out? I’m not sure, and I’ll def rewatch that other Rubies episode to see how I feel about that, but man I just don’t buy this lady at all anymore. “What a turn of events!” no longer sounds like like anything other than SARCASM to me. What do y'all think?

Navy is Amazing

Holy cow, Navy is smart. Like, really smart. She’s not only the smartest Ruby we’ve seen so far, she’s one of the smartest gems we’ve met period. In “Room for Ruby” she displayed an impressively high level of cunning, emotional control, and tactical thinking:

She falls out of the sky,

Comes face to face with the jerks who threw her and her friends into space,

Quickly realizes she’ll never be able to outfight them,

And right then and there she improvises a plan to get her enemies to let their guard down so she can steal her ship back and save her squad.

And it works!

In one episode she managed to accomplish something both Peridot and Jasper failed to do in two seasons: She escaped from Earth.

I gotta say, I’m really rooting for her and I want to see her again. It’s been a long time since we’ve had a character who’s successfully proactive, and after all of the times the Crystal Gems messed with the Rubies it’s hard not to see this as justified. 

She saved herself, and now she’s going to save her friends.

She’s the hero Homeworld needs, not the hero they deserve.
