I think part of the unhealthiness of her “obsession” stems from her losing Rose. Had Rose never met Greg Universe and eventually given birth to Steven, Pearl maybe would've obsessed over Rose in a comparatively “healthier” way—in other words, that obsession would’ve likely seemed more like a huge crush than it does now.

So observation: we know Connie is learning swordplay. We see her having Rose's Sword in the opening sequence. And we know Rose's sword is too big for Steven to handle on his own. So it seems fairly likely that at some point Steven will give her Rose's Sword. We've also seen Steven getting better and better with the shield.

I think this is setting up for Stevonnie to be a series battle asset.

My guess is that Steven *could* wield Rose's Sword just as well as Connie can (though I wouldn't be surprised if Connie's a bit awkward with it because of its size compared to her--that would justify an even bigger Power Boost when going Stevonnie since she could use Connie's knowledge of swordfighting while wielding it as an einhander then), but Steven just doesn't have the killer instinct to want to put the effort in. That is to say, he's a defender and a healer--a cleric. There's nothing PHYSICALLY stopping him from building up the muscles and skills he would need to wield Rose's Sword, but his personality just isn't the personality of an attacker.

That's assuming the Opening Sequence is really indicative of future developments. Maybe I'm just reading too much into that little detail. But it seems an odd thing to include in the opening sequence if it's not going to be relevant at some point.

I really appreciate that the show is so diverse in its portrayal of all kinds of different relationships. Even the most heroic and well-meaning characters aren't immune from forming unhealthy and toxic relationships. They're not always borne out of malice, and anybody can be guilty, whether straight/gay/NB/male/female/black/white/alien/whatever. And it's done in a way that avoids being too preachy.

Even the other person is actually a decent person themselves who might deserve admiration. Makes me wonder if Rose failed to notice how unhealthy Pearl's mentality was, or just failed to get Pearl to notice it.

Well she did have the ship with its pointer finger cannon, plus a small force of robonoids, and the escape pod, though I don't know if she can do anything herself if she isn't caught off guard. I'm thinking she was mostly made to handle equipment, but also act as a low level commanding officer who's meant to invade of a weak planet and manage the first crop of grunts while the base gets established. Jasper just outranked her because she's had time to get promoted, while Peridot might be fresh out of gem college.

I've always sort of had trepidation about Rose/Pearl, just because Pearl always seemed to have little hints of this unhealthiness to her psyche that makes me feel like her being in a romantic relationship--especially with someone like Rose--would be bad for the person on the other side. I mean I love Pearl, and I'm sure Rose loved her in a non-romantic way as well, but Pearl's got this weird....I know people throw around the "autism/aspergers" moniker a lot with fictional characters, and I don't necessarily mean to say Pearl's autistic, but she's got that sort of energy about her, of someone who doesn't really relate to other people in the way people normally do and that forms unhealthy attachments to the few people she *does* relate to.

I don't doubt that gems are naturally attracted to each other. But what Pearl has doesn't strike me as romantic.
She's referred to herself as a knight. She constantly put herself in harms way to seek her favor. She's obsessed with the notion that she was the closest to Rose. It's not the same kind of love Garnet has. It's blind worship. And I think that's something worth exploring.

While all that's true, that's a big part of *why* I see it as romantic interest on her part. Like think of all the nerds you know who have had crushes but are bad at social interaction. Isn't that exactly how they handle it? Put the object of their affection on a pedestal, act as though they are "protecting" them meanwhile obsessing over them and never having the courage to actually say anything? And I'm pretty sure a lot of them would jump at the chance to call themselves the object of their affection's "knight."

It's more that she thinks everything is her fault even when it isn't, taking full responsibility for Jasper even though all she did was show up at Homeworld. Also, that she's protecting Steven by not letting him help even though she can only delay Jasper's attack.

Also, I don't think Peridot actually made those shard fusions. Those cylinders they were in was what she was about to investigate when she was stopped before, and she arrived too recently to have hidden anything "all this time", since there were thousands of years between the battle and her appearance.

They only have sex organs if they specifically make them, so there really isn't a "gay" or "straight" or any classification of sexuality. Functionally it's more like they're all bisexual and just have personal preference of masculine or feminine features (in humans or other gems). For Rose it seems to be either, Garnet it's neither, and for Pearl seems to be feminine.

So yeah, Pearl is gay is anything but a needlessly technical sense.

Kind of, minus the part where interbreeding amongst themselves makes crazy vampires aliens.

>236398
I kind of thought the same after "Rose's Scabbard", but the way Pearl got jealous of Greg and her dream makes it pretty obvious that she wants/wanted Rose's physically, not just emotionally. For Christ's sake, Pearl imagines herself clinging to Rose from the back while holding her arms up.

Speaking of gem language, I've wondered if they magically pick up every language the way Peridot just showed up speaking in English. Specifically, if they can all understand Onion's language. As an aside, him kicking the microphone was pretty cute, and quite possibly the least unsettling thing he's done so far.

In all likelihood they weren't reciprocated, definitely not with the same intensity. Rose loved Pearl the same way she loved everything, and she didn't seem to understand Pearl's intentions any more than she could understand Greg's. She actually seemed like a very distant person before she met him, jolly and full of compassion but not really on the same level as other people.

I have to agree with the people saying Rose and Pearl were never "together" despite Pearl's clear and blatant obsession, Rose valued her deeply and quite likely had her as a confidant (telling her many things she never told others as Pearl claims, though as the episode showed not telling her absolutely everything) but the way Pearl has always been portrayed and personally acts so far really makes it seem like they were never equal partners in that kind of relationship as much as Pearl would have wanted them to be.
There's a big difference between the two gems in a romantic gem-kind relationship shown in the series and Pearl worshiping Rose.

The Rainbow Quartz fusion was pretty cool, I wonder if we'll ever see what the Garnet and Pearl fusion looks like? Since we've already seen what happened when Amethyst & Pearl or Amethyst & Garnet fuse (with the latter even having Pearl and Garnet fusing being referred to).

I feel Rainbow Quartz having four eyes shows that the fusion wasn't as complete as some of the other forms. Especially since they clearly had different emotions when looking at Greg.

I think Pearl needs some talk time with a nice human woman. In part because I doubt any other gem would help her behavior about Rose.

Doug and Rob Walker have started their episode-by-episode vlogs for Steven Universe.

A bit of a rocky start since they were going by the numbering on the DVD, which is missing a lot of episodes and has the rest in a weird semi-random order. They've since learned of the mistake and will use the correct episode order for their future viewings.

Can we PLEASE not do this? People can have intermediate opinions you know. You can dislike a character's actions while still finding them sympathetic at the same time and the same goes in the opposite direction. FFS I have Aspergers and I think Chris-Chan is a complete chode even if it's true he's playing some of it up. Pearl lied to Garnet and it's not unforgivable (so the rabid Pearlhaters can also fuck off) but she still did wrong, and Garnet (and the audience) have every right to be mad at her for it.

I'm kind of getting bored with all these episodes about Pearl and her issues. Sworn to the Sword was all about Pearl's issues, We Need to Talk prominently featured Pearl's issues, Chille Tid turned Pearl's issues into a gag, and now we have yet another episode where Pearl's issues cause problems for somebody else. At least this time Amethyst's reaction implied that this is more of a Crystal Gem issue than a uniquely Pearl issue.

As mentioned earlier in the thread, Steven knows less about Pearl than either Garnet or Amethyst, so it makes at least some sense to focus on her. For now, that focus helps flesh out her character and gives us some insight into why she acts how she does, both around the other Gems and around Steven. And as you mentioned, the fusion thing might become more of a broader issue with the Gems than simply Garnet getting mad at Pearl. (If it makes you feel better, today's episode supposedly focuses on Garnet/Ruby and Sapphire in the aftermath of yesterday's episode.)

I'm not entirely sure I get the appeal of these characters. There's no "feels" here, they have barely enough to them to be called character archetypes, let alone characters. They aren't fleshed out at all beyond their relationship with each other, and they certainly haven't done anything individually to warrant any kind of emotional investment. Maybe if we saw how these gems interacted with people other than just themselves they'd feel more legitimate, but right now I can't help but roll my eyes.

Fusion isn't sex. It can serve as a metaphor for sex because there's a degree of intimacy involved and requires trust in one's partner, but it isn't sex or sex hidden from the network's prying eyes under a different name. I mean, unless you'd think a father's reaction to having his twelve-year-old son pork his twelve-year-old best friend right in front of him would be excitement instead of horror.

At this point it pretty much is a metaphor for sex or at least the kind of intimate romance that usually includes sex, compared to early Season One when it was a little more ambiguous. I'm of two minds about that because on the one hand the show doesn't have to beat around the bush to make a message about those kinds of relationships for all the sexually active people watching the show, because goddamn there are a lot of them. On the other hand it risks turning the show into a big K-drama when there's plenty of other completely nonromantic and nonsexual close relationships like siblinghood and platonic friendship that fusion can be used to explore too, rather than just CS Lewis's Eros.

You might be making assumptions based on your own perspective. Because "birth video" was definitely my first thought, rather than porn. Possibly just because I know they wouldn't play even audio clips from a porn video on a cartoon network show aimed at children during the day, but either way.

Yeah, I did. And my first thought was "Oh man, is this going to be a video of his birth?" Clue one: it's a children's show on cartoon network. Clue two: most people don't make homemade porn in hospitals, and literally the first thing they said in it was that it was taking place in a hospital, and Vidalia was the "star."

I don't think it's a problem he sticks to his job, but I am glad Steven's spending time with Onion now because no one else is. I don't know if he's even seen a video game being used as something other than a synth, and visiting the temple will probably lead to another Rose's Room episode and generally a lot of new stuff for him. Speaking of which, it's funny that his first appearance was in Connie's introduction episode, and they haven't shown up together since or directly interacted ever.

Fusions work pretty weird, I wouldn't be surprised if some of the larger ones somehow had less parts instead of more, with Rose reigning in the arm count. Speaking of fusions, I think the general consensus of /co/ had a pretty good idea what Sadonyx would look be like.

Also, come on Steven, you couldn't help Jamie recruit actors? Connie would probably be up for it, and Ronaldo jumps at the chance to put on a show for people.

I think they did. It was a pretty big pile of rubble that Peridot pushed together. Everything could've been in pieces and Peridot roughly put stuff together like the communication tower. Or we never actually saw the Gems succeed in doing so. It might've exploded mid-warp like Pearl feared.

Makes her relationship with Rose Quartz make a lot more sense in context now. Even if Rose didn't necessarily /love/ her (which I don't think she did) she was the first person to treat Pearl like a person rather than a tool and that's what made Pearl develop her obsession for her.

Getting a bit of a Dr. Crygor vibe here.
Also, having guns for fingers plus the lost foot strongly suggests they're her summonable weapon. If she used one hand as a gun while flying with the other it could be pretty OP. I'm curious to see if that foot is something she can easily replace, or if it's actually equipment she'd need to find a substitute for.

"Actual" arms and legs would be projections of her gem, which would disappear when discarded and she'd be able to regenerate. Lacking those ability is probably more than made up for by the other advantages--she literally brought a laser gun to a sword fight.

It's also possible that they are projections, but they work and look different because of her gemstone itself being augmented.

Gems are the same sizes as Evangelions. Which is to say: however they need to be in that particular shot. Their relative sizes compared to one another seem to be pretty steady. Opal is bigger than Steven and Pearl and Amethyst, and probably Garnet, but we don't know how big she is compared to Rainbow Quartz. I would probably guess she's bigger than Rainbow Quartz and smaller than Malachite, but it's hard to be precise on these things.

I think the trick she pulled at the start of the week was the only really awful thing she did. Rest of the time she was either hanging out with Amethyst, being completely absent, rewriting a play or being confused and desperate because Garnet accidentally put too much emphasis on their time being wasted when that wasn't what really bothered her.

The bomb overall had a neat structure to it: All of them were in the two episodes on each end, and the three in the middle each gave a different Non-Steven crystal gem focus.

One of the things I really like about this show is every now and then they produce a contextualizing episode. At first I wasn't overly fond of Historical Friction, but then I realized it was meant more to shine a light on Pearl than stand on its own.

They're basically directly addressing the issues fans had been complaining about with this sort of demonstration that Pearl had flaws and it was starting to bother them. Which, honestly, is fairly clever story telling in its own right, but still, it made me develop a further appreciation for what they're doing.
