Nerds being nerds on a nerd holiday. Happy (belated!) Star Wars Day, and May the 4th (…5th… 6th…) be with you!

(they changed outfits whenever they changed movies) (amethyst pouted for like twenty minutes when pearl went with the endor outfit instead of slave leia)


Pearl seems to have a hard time physically containing emotions (or controlling them at all). She shakes when she’s angry or really happy, does that spontaneous twirly thing when she’s gushing about the strawberry field. Then there’s the end of “So Many Birthdays” where she can hardly function when distraught.

Visual Aids and Projections


I relate to Pearl in a lot of ways but one of the things I probably relate to most is her uncanny ability to stick her foot in her mouth and say the absolutely wrong thing in any situation, especially when actively trying to be helpful


It’s diamond!!!!! or at least the gem i have decided i will call diamond until i am corrected by canon. her color tint can change because of lights and prism magic. the one on the far right is what i figure she looked like before turning all evil and murdery


I find it interesting that Pearl’s projections seem to essentially be a ‘window’ into her thoughts and that, once ‘on’, what’s displayed isn’t always entirely voluntary. In “Serious Steven” and “Rose’s Scabbard” when her thoughts are interrupted her projections morph into something related to how she’s feeling and its obvious she doesn’t actually mean to project that (especially in “Serious Steven”). In both “Cheeseburger Backpack” and “Serious Steven” she needs to actively ‘turn off’ her projections, by shaking her head and shoving the projection back into her gem, respectively.
