I’ve never seen anyone else make this post, so I GUESS THIS IS UP TO ME:
So waaaaaaaay back in season one of Steven Universe, we got our first ~new fashion~ opportunities for the gems in the episode “Beach Party” where the gems generate cute new beach outfits. Garnet: cute. Amethyst: ultra cute. But Pearl’s didn’t quite sit right with me.
A part of me thought: “Well I guess this shows that Pearl has no idea what a ‘beach party’ entails and is concerned with being proper, thus highlighted by this far-too-fancy dress.” And also “I guess the writers and artists know better than I.” But really at the time I couldn’t get over that it felt somehow too … feminine for Pearl.
Of course this is all pre-”Rose’s Scabbard”, pre-”Jail Break”, pre-lots of things.
Because come seasons three and four we got this:
And then this:
And let’s not forget this look:

So in conclusion: I am both happy that I always knew it my heart that Pearl is a total butch lesbian, and understand now that the SU crew had to maintain a certain plausible deniability (“oh look at Pearl in this ~nice dress~”) for a while before they could go “just kidding, everyone is super gay all the time.”
Danny Phantom concept that I don’t think anyone thought about yet:
Every time I think about them, I feel as if they should definitely know each other? They both have that Stupid Hairstyle and they’re both crusty old fancy adults who are secretly ghosts taking advantage of teenagers and ruining lives
