Hi there! I don't know if anyone has asked you this before so here goes: okay so you know how in Coach Steven, Garnet denies Pearl's request to fuse because "we don't need to be careful, we just need to be huge."? Do you think this means that we can assume that Garnet and Pearl's fusion is not as big as Suglite, possibly either as big as/just slightly bigger than Opal?

I think that’s most likely, given the dialogue. It also implies that Garnet and Pearl’s fusion is more controlled than Sugilite was (would pretty much have to be, I guess). Even though, given their sizes, you’d think Garnet/Pearl’s fusion would be the biggest, the size of the fusion may be more based on the strength of the fusion rather than the sizes of the component Gems. Sugilite’s extreme power and force of personality was so big it needed a big body to contain it.

Also, I think each fusion has its own ‘utility’, which makes them better suited for specific roles. Opal has the bow and arrow, so she’s ranged. Opal is probably meant to be more personable, too, so she’s less intimidating than Sugilite. Sugilite, on the other hand, is, like, a berserker melee type who’s probably meant to strike fear into the enemy. No idea what Garnet/Pearl’s role could be
