The ever makelovetoable Peridot getting double redeemed, incoming!
And a cute peributt
Man I really do hope YD turns out to be an intimidating villain and not a total bust
They handled her great!
Loved how they did it! I should have had faith in the Sugar
>yellow diamond isn't a sadistic calm cool and collected leader
>mfw she's just another hothead
>lesbian femdom intensifies
We didn't expect that though. We all thought she was the same size as the other gems. I didn't expect it anyways, it made her fucking creepy cool when the design was kind of weird before.
I think Jasper's only thought right now is how to not have a permanent mental breakdown from months of nonstop hardcore yuri soulrape.
I am legit happy how they handled it. It felt suitable. Peridot was conflicted, is still conflicted, but used her own problems against herself - she followed logic, which told her this place WAS worth something other than Yellow's petty vendetta and hatreds.
I legit look forward to a hard long conversion - I want to see Steven's Paladin style put to a real test with a first hard convert to the Gems with Jasper.
Honestly, best YD sugar could have done.
SO excitied to see where this goes.
Oh right, [spoiler]hitaus[/spoiler]
Cluster confirmed there for spite
Praise Yellow Diamond
>that fucking face
I'm glad the show is able to take the piss out of itself at times. Makes it so much more fun to watch. Yellow Diamond is HELLA salty over Rose's big titties.
Racist Undertone Pearls confirmed
>Pearl has to duel Blue Peal, Yellow Pearl, and possibly White Pearl
I'm pretty sure she's Pink Pearl. We still don't know if Rose was Pink Diamond, though we have as much evidence for as we do against now, leaving the matter kind of pleasantly mysterious until we know more. Until then, I'm going to assume she's a Pink Diamond, whoever that was, former Pearl.
Tomorrow she loses her virginity
I'm so proud
Such good reaction fuel this ep
Shes not a diamond. I mean look at the reverence, status, and well, size, of the diamonds.
Shes a quartz, and until we see one type of gem turning into another, she appears to just be a rare member of the Pink Court.
>I want that planet to die
Fuckin' ice cold
>Peridot was calling her giant boss a dumb cunt basically
You can't. Not because you couldn't bully her, but she's experienced Yellow Diamond. She's experienced her tremendous, powerful hands. She's felt her almighty voice rumbling through her ribcage like a nitro drag race. Felt her great boot gently smear dirt into her sobbing face.
You just can't give her what she's already been trained to thirst above all else.
We have no damn idea at this point. For all we know Rose made herself smaller on purpose, she was always the smallest of the Diamonds, she was never a Diamond to begin with, she was merely a servitor of Pink Diamond who died at hers or someone else's hands (if Pink Diamond isn't Lion or who the fuck knows what)
Too much for and against to say anything for sure just yet. Sugar is decent at the cup game.
>Yellow Diamond hatefucking her Yellow Pearl after the Peridot call until she's literally torn open and poofs
What do you think happened to Blue Pearl after Ruby and Sapphire managed to flee?
Pearls are basically Homeworld's version of pic related
I like to pretend that Blue Diamond is absurdly protective of her Pearl and just cradled her like a fucked up mother with her good little girl as she hissed orders.
>Dismisses Steven for not thinking logically when making decisions about Earth.
>Impulsively chews out leader for thinking logically when it comes to decisions about the fate of Earth.
Damn Crystal Gems rubbed off on her.
that fucking tongue
its like a slip in slide
poor mally though, wonder what she looks like in full harmony
>BD probably gently caresses her pearl, keeping her on the brink of orgasm for hours or even days at a time
>YD takes and uses her pearl fast hard and quick, or abuses for hours or days on a particular nasty streak
>Rose obviously did gross gay shit like holding hands and missionary for sole purpose of procreation
How does white diamond use her pearl /trash/?
it wasn't logical though. it was
"sir, this planet has valuable resources that will be destroyed if you allow the cluster to go off"
"fuck that, I just want that stain on the empires record destroyed. I resent its very presences because it reminds me of my loss to rose quartz"
"but that's not logical! It has resources!"
"well fuck you too, little miss illogical!"
"What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, peasant? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Diamond Academy, and I’ve been involved in numerous conquests in galactic space, and I have over 300 confirmed shatters."
"Uhhh, signing off!"
I cant express how much I love this episode
Its fucking great
really silly too
>hot potato with a mini nuke
the fact that even the Diamonds are willing to waste resources and potential value over petty grudges basically made it click in her head that as crazy as they are they are less crazy then YD, after all they at least protect things they value, they at least value things at all
>I don't care about resources or using this planet to expand the empire, which it could and was a plan at one point
>I want it gone cause rose ruined it for me and my autism can't handle it
fuck off diamond clod
>Rose obviously did gross gay shit like holding hands and missionary for sole purpose of procreation
>Rose roleplaying with her Pearl by begging her to knock her up and make her a mother
Call the Gems. I now possess a weapon harder than diamond.
thats basicly how I heard there argument
PLEASE tell me YD is the only Diamond that acts like a child...although, if rose IS a pink diamond, she too does a shit load of funny faces
Bunch of 20ft tall babys squawbling about
No. I really don't like that idea. Every time I'm in the thread I try to present like 16 ideas in the same vein with new takes and avenues to explore, but every one of those pasty chunklords wants to wank it to the exact same tired fetish of Manly Man Knight being vored by his demon waifu or some similar bored-to-tears schlocky shit.
So what is /sug/ listening to?
Peridot assumed that the Cluster was a last ditch effort to make use of the planet after the war made colonization impossible, it seems that realizing Earth's destruction was always the primary reason made Peridot see that the Homeworld is just as destructive as she accused the Crystal Gems of being
got me on a sad song
What's your stance on the "rose was originally pink diamond" theory?
Seeing as both the other diamonds have their respective pearls, and garnet refers to rose as "[...] and her terrifying rogue pearl" i think it strengthens that absolutely confirmed theory
It's still too unclear. 'Renegade Pearl' implies she's absent from whatever duty she originally had, instead of just being Rose's natural servant. But it could mean that as well. For now, like birds, we just don't know.
/aco/ is JUST FOR PORN
most commenting gets your post deleted
Shit here's more lax, It's perfect for this kind of threads
We know this because she has no weapon.
All gems ever expected to be in combat have weapons.
Quartzes of all kinds we've seen, including jaspers and amethysts.
Pearls do, as one last ditch effort.
Peridot does not (she had to wear an armcannon).
Lapis does not (she uses water instead, author confirmed).
Sapphire presumably does not.
Sapphires are tactics. They move fast and see the future.
Peridots are essentially ob/gyns for a race that inject their young into planets like a virus.
Lapis's then, should have something related to their abilities. Terraforming is practically the only choice.
yes. but how did they get in charge if its wrong?
is it a Princess Bubblegum situation? They're oldest and just happened to make all the drones/citizens?
If so, wouldn't they make all th drones inferior so as to prevent uprisings?
Peridot very specifically describes Yellow Diamond as being the very peak of rationality and objectivity. She had no doubts that such an intelligent and practical gem could put aside their personal feelings and spare the Earth, if Peridot could offer of reasonable, sensible reason for why it would be a waste. But what Peridot found was that the being she idolized was nothing more than a stubborn, petty, and utterly unreasonable being who wanted the Earth destroyed more for personal satisfaction than anything. Peridot holds notions of intelligence, efficiency, and practicality as being high virtues and is visibly taking aback when Yellow Diamond falls short. Peridot was dedicated and loyal to this idea of what she thought Yellow Diamond was truly like, so it's no wonder she was so upset at finding out that she was basically worshiping a lie.
I'll be honest, this episode is a fucking goldmine
Diamond's are proably the strongest/smartest.
It's also the reason fusion scares them. Fused gems of a same type are just a bigger gem, it's not any stronger(besides the advantage size gives you) or smarter, it's just bigger.
Fusion between two separate gems can combine that intelligence and strength there's no doubt alexandrite or the super fusion with rose can easily crush a single diamond
Yeah you know what? I'mma post some fanart
Yellow Pearl confirmed GOAT
>All YD has to do to silence her Pearl's yammering is to reach down without even looking up from the Gemmington Post to plant one massive finger right between her bitchy britches and just apply occasional pressure
It seems to mirror the gem placement of their owner
At least, that's a 2/2 with a POTENTIAL 3/3 between Pearl and White Diamond.
the whole episode not only was absolutely great in pace and content but it's also a reaction goldmine
i think i'm gonna watch it again just because
Considering we've seen shoulder, outer palm, eye socket and throat/oropharinx, there's PLENTY of places to put a gem
I'm cheering VIGOROUSLY because i want to see a Pearl with the gem on her nose
>Next episode is literally "murder fun times with peridot feat. garnet"
I found it interesting that Peridot was trying to advocate a sort of light touch, trying to figure out a plan for earth that would benefit Gemkind without hurting it or at least without making it inhospitable to organic life.
I am curious to what her plan might have been
>a Pearl with the gem on her nose
B-but that would ruin their defining characteristic!
She was just trying to make everyone happy, literally
ended up trading her loyalty for cold hard logic and it ended with calling her boss a bitch
She should have planned it, she could have done it if she didn't try and wing it
>All Pearls programmed to derive unmatchable sexual satisfaction from one-upping and especially murdering other Pearls
>ESPECIALLY in front of and for their masters
Maybe she's a literal unicorn
You know, pink diamond may just be a space princess
she wasn't in a position to plan, but her Boss Clearly wants Earth's death over all other goals, the Cluster just gives a pretense of having a reason to destroy it other then petty grudges
From the leaks
Both from CN, both regarding that one episode
Both EXTREMELY revealing
She couldn't have possibly known that
If she did, would have she tried anyway?
Would have she just lied and said that the cluster needed extra attention and that she would have it for a longer time, instead of straight up playing teh devil's advocate?
but there were people trying to steal her radio, so she had to.
now, if she had just told them the plan int he first place instead of trying to be sneaky.
Especially because then they could have waited til post-clusterkill and just reported in that the cluster expirement had failed. it was stillbirthed.
thus making them give up on trying it ever again, making for one very happy garnet, one very safe earth, and peridot gets to go back to homeworld as a loyal citizen, or propose her research study thing as an alternative to the failed cluster, salvaging at least something from this chain of trainwrecks.
I was a little disappointed that Yellow Diamond didn't give a fuck.
Now she seems less like a cold, methodical, strictly logical ruler and more like a sadistic bitch.
Rose has always been a quartz. The theory was strained enough before seeing the diamonds. Now, it's pretty obvious that they are in no way similar.
But I am curious what happened to the Pink Court, because it looks like there was some struggle internally and Pink is gone. The missing statue at the arena, and the ship did not have the four diamond structure, it just had the three triangles, Yellow, Blue, and White.
Maybe that was part of Roses rebellions too.
She is, but it was made clear that Earth is VERY personal to her, and that seeing a lower gem question her was also unheard of and clearly pissing her off about a subject she was already sore about. That was probably the most emotional she's been in millenia.
this is the only edit that matters
There's a reason she's just a god damn midget engineer
But let's see it from her perspective
They could be destroying her only way to contact homeworld for a long-ass time, and if they did she wouldn't have had any chance to get any plan working, especially since YD would eventually send a ship to investigate, much more prepared for hostilities.
I guess she did that out of fear they might destroy it as soon as they got their hands on it, hence the robot attack and the "you really don't understand anything"
all the diamonds have the same cut gem, which is square or table cut.
Rose does not, so she is not. I don't doubt that Pink diamond is not in power and was either imprisoned or died as a result of the resistance.
I'm thinking the big pink diamond twist is that Rose killed her and took control of the pink court to assist in the rebellion.
I can get behind this, specially since the main gems surrounding the diamonds fit a pattern to their own color, like sapphire and blue pearl for blue diamond, and now the yellow pearl for yellow diamond
That would have been quite the act
To the point that "a small group of rebel" would have been met with EXCESSIVE force from the diamond authority
If she killed a diamond, there's no way the others wouldn't just throw everything they had at her
If there's a diamond they may have killed, that'd be Blue, the closest to the actual rebellion and stationed in the solar system, now completely deserted of homeworld presence
>it was made clear that Earth is VERY personal to her
You sure? I didn't pick up on that.
All I understood was "the Earth will blow up, how nice".
Oh hey, we hit bump limit already
That's good, it's probably going to last just enough for tomorrow's episode
>"We'll finally get some use out of that miserable planet."
>"I don't care about 'potential' and 'resources'. I want my cluster and I want that planet to die."
>"Are you questioning my authority?"
>"I'm not interested in the puny thoughts of a peridot."
>"It will tear apart the Earth and I will take immense satisfaction in erasing that hideous rock off of our starmaps."
She obviously hates Earth but it's all basically a "I am a cunt"-speech. There aren't any personal issues or history explained.
I like the terrifying meme. But you know that shit had to be scary. Every gem is used to these meek subservient pearls, and then you got this one crazy running around dual wielding swords and cutting through quartzs like it's nothing.
Theres this class gem that's almost like fancy furniture, and then suddenly you find out they can out fight your fucking soldier class? I bet a lot of gems were looking over their shoulder thinking about the pearl in Roses rebellion.
>I will take immense satisfaction in erasing that hideous rock off of our starmaps.
I know you're trolling, but dude. I could practically hear her titan cock starting to swell up in hatred.
>yfw you idolized your boss as the pinnacle of objectivity
>but then she turned out to be a petty, arrogant cunt who holds grudges and illogically wastes resources out of spite
Female bosses, amirite?
Daily reminder that all the best gems are blue.
What if Lapis is actually the casual form of Blue Pearl?
Yellow diamond's pissed off face gives me life...
You're right. It's not like she could have multiple gems.
That explains why she can fuse, as well as why her mother constantly worries about her (without giving much of a damn about gem monsters).
But gems can't make babies without destroying themselves.
So gems can survive if they don't pass one their stone?
A kinda interesting idea, actually.
Will she ever make herself new prosthetics?
She already built a robot and a drill, so why not a few new arms and legs?
I know she likes to experiment and all, but...
earth tech is too primitive.
even scavenged gem tech would be a pain.
also, a good chunk of her development has been coming to terms with the real her, and not what homeworld made her to be. The limb extenders are kind of part of that aren't they?
>The limb extenders are kind of part of that aren't they?
I thought they were just cool gadgets that helped her compensate for being a lowly midget.
She could easily rig some more up with tech from the moon.
The only alternative would be FUSION.
not accept herself.
If you feel the need for a psychological coping mechanism, you're not being true to yourself.
whether that be projection, sublimation, compensation, or any other.
>tfw your ass feels kinda damp and you can't tell if it's just sweat or a little bit of wet shit that slipped out when you farted
>not wanting P-Dotty to have her arms
You're an absolutely special kind of fucking disgusting.
she's not handicapped though.
all the limbs are there. all the capability is there.
she's just kinda short. cause, you know, designed for engineering.
Ruby is even shorter than her. Ruby needs no extenders though.
Ruby has two other Rubies and Sapphire to fuse with.
She goes nuts whenever she's reduce to "fun size" again.
Some farts are safer than others
This was not a safe one
>Connie's mom's face when holding THE Rose Quartz's sword
Just when she was trying to put the past behind her and live the modest life of a humble human...
she goes nuts because she's very protective of sapphire.
as is her designated purpose.
I would similarly expect Peridot to go nuts if someone started messing with her kindergarten operating. Oh wait, she did. Multiple times.
And Pearl if someone started messing with a perfectly tidied pile of her master's belongings. Oh wait, RIP sir bearington.
Oh, and filling out her name on every chore wheel spot? yeah, /clearly/ her designed purpose is nothing to her.
Or whenever someone tells Amethyst she's not strong enough, or big enough? Or can't beat people up as someone big strong and vaguely mexican? That clearly doesn't upset her.
Ruby is going nuts because she's being cockblocked from her designed purpose. it has nothing to do with lack of stilts.
...this happens because her daughter's still half-gem, despite not inheriting hers.
Her gem weapon is a sword.
Her gem power is a sword.
Her entire life is a sword.
>that moment when you realize your daughter's boyfriend is actually the reincarnated banshee that slew over 1000 of your fellow brother's in arms, by having the very sword she killed them with, that you WITNESSED them killed with, as you could do naught but gaze in horror, thrust into your arms, and having to act like it's nothing other than discovering your daughter owned a sword.
Brace your anuses for when she finally fights alongside the gems.
Happening will ensue.
>my little man's all grown up
>he's finally blossomed into a beautiful young woman
I think you're right on the mark.
One thing that stood out to me is that Peridot was sort of taken a back when she stated her named and Yellow Diamond responded by saying, "Which one?"
It gives you the sense of individualism she gained in the short time on earth and with the crystal gems.
This show's potential is so bright, I need shades just to watch it.
>throwing a hot dog down it
>not running through that hallways and tearing it up
That's no way to be a gem-fucking juggernaut, bitch.
