“Stanley Pines was the man who saved the world, not me. … If I’m totally honest, I must admit that he’s a hero and I’m…a hero’s brother. And I’m OK with that.”

I have a lot of feelings. ;_;

Re: “I’m the only one who can handle your kind of power!”

I’ve seen a lot of people equate this to classic abuser tactics (”I’m the only one who can deal with your bullshit/issues/etc”). And I don’t want to go into too much detail b/c this fandom’s doing its regular bout of insane witch-hunting again, but that’s not how I read this line at all. 

I read this as something a victim, particularly a strong/masculine and/or dominant victim of abuse might feel. Jasper is PROUD that she was able to survive over a year of torture. She saw Lapis’ power, and she got the full brunt of it, and she could handle it. Everyone else would have cracked (ha, gem pun oops) but she didn’t. This amazing power, and she (and she alone) can handle it. That’s addictive af.
