So lots of people started to blame Yellow Diamond but this
case isnt as clear as this.
First of all while
Yellow Diamond seems suspicious we should also remember that Yellow even in the
past seemed to be very angry and immidately jump to conclusions. YD holds her
emotions back and she mourns by using anger and revenge. YD wants to punish
that gem who killed PD but her judgement is clouded by her anger. Also remember
how the Diamonds were described in the past.
Blue Diamond a stoic ruler who
couldnt stand imperfections and weakness and who rarely showed emotions (just look at
how Sapphire and Ruby described her), what we see now is the effect and changes
what PD’s death caused in her so it isnt hard to imagine what PD’s death caused
in Yellow Diamond.
We know from Peridot that her Diamond suppose to be the most
rational one but now that we saw her reactions she behaves very differently or
is she? When Peridot called her she behaved very official and someone who would
ask logical questions but her behaviour immediately changed when Peridot
started to speak about the Earth. I think that in the past YD was actually the
most logical one but her sister’s death changed her and filled her with regrets
Just remember her song. Does this gem look and sound like
somebody who killed her sister?
For me no instead she sounds like somebody who cant bare to
thought that her sister died and who
wants immediate revenge so she can close of this part of her life as soon as
possible. She wants to do this quickly because she feels that her pain will
break her and not because she tries to hide that she killed her sister.
Secondly as Zircon said something is very suspicious here.
How PD’s gems didnt notice anything or tried to stop Rose and why lots of them
dont plan to get revenge but they seem satisfied with their lives elsewhere? We
only saw BD, YD and Jasper to care and want to get revenge.
Also remember what
Eyeball asked from Jasper (Amethyst) the first place before she admitted she
witnessed Rose killing PD? Where were you when it happened?- My question is why
would ask this at the first place? It seemed like Eyeball wanted to make sure
that Jasper was there or not, but why? Especially because she suspected that
Jasper wanted a closure. What if that Eyeball and other gems were in part of
the cover up and Eyeball wanted to make sure that Jasper was in it too or that
she wasnt there so she could continue the lie…
Third. There are things that still dont make that much sense. Why did
the CGs tell Steven that it was Rose who did it while we know that she was
innocent? Werent they there or they just assumed Rose did it and she never told
them the truth? Garnet said that Rose alway did everything for the Earth and
for others so why would she cover something like this up especially because
Pink’s death was the reason that the Diamonds used corruption and the cluster
against Earth? Who did she try to protect with this?
Fourth. Why Pearl reacted so badly on the Moon base? She
looked like somebody who saw something horrible but she also doesnt want to
speak about it. Lots people say that it might have been Pearl because she could
get close to PD and she also uses swords and she is important enough for Rose
to take the blame for but how she could cover it up? Would the other gems deny
that it was a Pearl who killed their leaders because of shame? And why would
Pearl still held PD’s symbole if she did it? Although for me it is a little bit
suspicious that we have never saw her shapeshifting. Maybe she used Rose appearance
to make her a hero? Still was she strong enough to crush a diamond?
Then who could do it and why? I have two (maybe three) theories about this.
1. It was White Diamond.
We didnt really see her but we see her
influence through the show.
Remember the temple pictures? We saw Rose
Quartz holding a Diamond against somebody who looks like White Diamond.
What if Pink Diamond took part in the rebelion
but she did it under cover. Maybe Rose managed to influence her or it happened
the other way around. Maybe PD didnt like how things went on HW and she wanted
to creat a whole different system and colony but White Diamond found it out or
she just wanted to get rid off her because she opposed her ideas so she killed
She also had enough influence to cover it up.
And if the theory about Pearl was White
Diamond’s Pearl first is true and later on PD accepted her then maybe she wasnt
the only gem who PD managed to get away form WD and maybe she was losing many
of her followers so she had to kill her sister to mantain her power. It is also
very suspicious that only the two other sister care about the killer of PD. And
we also saw that WD as the more dominant diamond in the corruption and even in
the trial platform too. So she is very suspicious for me.
So we heard from Eyeball (and other
witnesses also said too) that she saw Rose Quartz shatter PD but if it isnt
true and Rose wasnt there and neither of
them Diamonds committed the crime then only the followers left.
Remember the temple pictures again?
seems like the hands go toward a diamond. For others this seemed like a praise
and the sign of admiration but for me it looked more like gems wanted to tear
apart their diamond. It wouldnt be the first time that people=gems rebel
against their ruler and kill them. They could have the time and could cover it
up and they dont seem to mind PD’s absence that much (except Jasper) and it
would also make sense why Pearl was in shock and why she fled and why would Rose cover it up especially if some of her friends
took part in it, maybe the rebels managed to convince the other gems to take
part in the rebelion and they wanted to get rid off PD. I mean it probably
wasnt only Bismuth who thought shattering a diamond will bring peace and
But we still have to answer
lots of questions like how? They probably needed much more strenght to
accomplish this but were they really able to do it? Maybe with fusion or they
used some kind of weapon?
3+. Which is a combination of the
WD managed to use PD’s followers and the
rebels to turn against PD and helped them out to shatter her. This seems the most possible for me.
I still have questions tho. Why were the
pearls so suprised about PD’s Pearl? Did they just forget about her or assumed
that she died?
And why did the Diamonds get rid off PD’s symbole? It seems that somebody works very hard to destroy even the memory of Pink Diamond.
Sure, there’s infatuation - that feeling that gnaws at you when you first start liking someone. You think about them all the time, you envision what being together would/will be like, you don’t quite act yourself - and it can feel very intense, and it can trick you into thinking you’re in love, but chances are that flame will die out. No, love is more than that; love is something that grows over time. Love isn’t the intense flames of passion, but the dull, steady burn that follows. It’s a place of comfort, and it’s something that takes nurture and care to keep alive.
honestly tho yellow diamond as the sympathetic diamond is so much more compelling
because with blue, they made her sympathetic by stripping her of all her intimidation and dignity. she cries and mopes and aside from that ONE shot of her questioning sapphire she’s a blubbering mess. it’s not interesting?? we cant hate her because she’s oh so sad, but we cant like her because shes a dictator. it’s so wishy washy and leaves her with virtually no character depth
but yellow?? she’s angry. she’s bitter and wants to erase every scrap of the earth and the rebellion, even if its a waste of resources. it makes her multi-faceted while STILL being an intimidating villain. you know she’ll never be a good person, but she’s still interesting and you can feel for her. i could just imagine her like, slowly becoming more obsessive over destroying the earth, disobeying commands from the other diamonds and making her own armies question her, ultimately dooming herself to failure. it’d be so cool and GOD damn do i hope they go that route and just pretend blue diamond doesnt exist.
First, if you have watched the leaked videos, please try to watch them on TV when officially come out or on the CN app. Support the show. Please.

The latest SU episodes raised up more questions than it answers
Spoilers under the cut:
The WANTED event came and went and while I did like it I am disappointed that we are now more in the dark than we used to be about plot related stuff.
First of the things I liked are Homeworld, little we got to see of it, the new gems who have really creative designs and the Diamonds themselves. I loved seeing YD and BD just work off of one another and interact. Also, seeing a less mopey Blue was nice for a change. I was surpised that she was willing to listen to Steven because she wanted to know how Rose did it. I also really liked it when YD started poofing gems left and right. FInally something bad she did on screen.
What I didn’t like in this bomb is the fact that we now have more questions thn before. Some questions were given answers.
Answers we got:
How Lion came to be.
Where was Pink Diamond killed
How Homeworld looks
Different types of fusions
We learnt there are different types of Sapphire
Question raised because of all that happned:
Where the hell is White Diamond? Does she exist? Why is no one acknowledging her existence? Is she a fusion? Is she dead? There is no reason to keep this secret. We could have at least gotten a line saying she was away conquering a planet or something or that she is dead.
How did Pink Diamond end up shattered? Blue Zircon said it couldn’t have been Rose because she wasn’t close to her, as PD had no Roses in her court at that point in time because, probably all where bubbled because Rose rebelled. Frankly, I don’t like this implication that Yellow shattered her and because she did so she panciked when Zircon implied that. It kind of takes away from the fact that Rose did an unspeakable thing to stop the war, because it was YOU KNOW, WAR. It made Rose a more interesting character. Shattering PD and still feeling bad and guilty about it but she had to do it to get a point across. Now she is practically innocent until proven otherwise.
Why does Steven have a new power? It has been well established his tears did not heal. How come now they can heal dead organic matter? Why would any gem need that ability? Being that neither them nor their planet is organic.
Why are Rose Quartzes so incredibly powerful? They have such an amazing and long list of powers that other gems seem pretty much useless next to them.
I think this is pretty much it. I loved the episodes and I wish that they would give us plot related ones more often. And I hope they won’t go back to slice of life episodes and forget that Lars is on Homeworld cus that would suck.
Also, what happened to the two Zircons and Topazes?
A/N: A short drabble
where the reader has trouble sleeping. Mild angst with mentions of sleeplessness
and anxiety/nightmares. Also, serious fluff courtesy of the sweetest seraph
The unseasonably cool evening air kissed the still sunlight
warmed asphalt, raising a gauzy mist to swirl about your feet as you strolled
the deserted roadside. So cold was the night, even the song of the crickets,
toads, owls, and other melodic denizens of the wee hours were numbed to
silence. Only your deep rhythmic breath, billowing out before you in swiftly
dissipating grey clouds, and the soft cadence of your footfalls disturbed the
hush – all the world seemed asleep save yourself. Nights like these, when the
dread of anxious disquiet dreams and nightmares seized you before you could so
much as close your eyes to begin the search for rest, you found a semblance of
peace in this waking walking solitude.
The familiar welcome ruffle of celestial wings tickled your
ears mere milliseconds before you felt the buckled sleeve of a trench coat
lightly brush the back of your hand. You subtly shivered, but not from the cold
or the unexpectedness of his arrival.
But also: nearsighted Garnet, who got it from Ruby. That's why she never takes her shades off- they work sort of like glasses, but it's only as a fusion she has the ability to make them (but if people think they just look cool then she's fine with that). That's also why she was crouching down really close to Steven in Jailbreak after reforming, because shE COULDN'T SEE HIM help I'm emotional about nearsighted Garnet.
