She's the "outside force".
She's there to showcase all the things wrong with the homeworld gems while reinforcing that everything the Crystal Gems do is right.
She's a socially ignorant rock nazi technician from outer space caught up in a forgotten war kept alive by a bunch of sexually depraved confederate nut jobs and their mutant offspring.
But that's not true at all? The Crystal Gems are fucked up people who got into some bad habits. Even if shaking off the hierarchy/caste system is a good thing, they do some messed up stuff.
What I want to know is if the plot of "Message Received" and "Log Date whatever" are as predictable as they seem.
I mean they've surprised us before, but this IS a show for children.
She is the best gem. Too bad Rebecca made her show some love interest in that fat purple gem.
>fucked up people who got into some bad habits
>they do some messed up stuff.
Yeah, but that doesn't change the fact that the show doesn't take any effort to show otherwise that Peridot is clearly meant to be in the wrong in every occasion not beneficial to the Gems.
Yes, but in the end it was still Peridot who had to apologize while Amethyst was the one encouraging her.
>i hope no one tells peridot about malachite until the last possible second
>Peridot was accepted back home as a POW(The same shit she should have done for lapis.)
>Her experience on earth starts to fuck with her.
>She goes back to work surrounded with peridots and has a small break down half way through the day.
>An emerald overseer takes her out of the line to check up on her and ask her what's wrong seeming like she cares.
>Peridot start writing her log entries to vent in secret.
>Everything goes full 1984 ending with peridot's Gem slowly getting crush by emerald until she accept something against all logic.
Rebecca made her short or else she'd be the favorite. I hate her for that because short girls are disgusting. That aside she's a lean mean green meme machine.
I wonder if we'll see more of Homeworld outside of the totalitarian aspects.
Using her as a battery means they gave up on her plus she would get drained as a martyr.
>Peridot: The gem who saw the truth beyond the wall. The spark of the second rebellion.
I was trying to parallel the book/movie with the back breaking torture while reprogramming her.
>tfw you almost died to get footage of a pairing you don't even want.
I think that, along with the Garnet incident at the beginning of the ep., was supposed to show that the CG's aren't always in the right. While they're not as cold as HW, they end up being ruled by their emotions. The Homeworlder, despite being wronged, doesn't let her emotions get in the way, she sucks it up for the greater good.
I love this show and my fav part was when they tried to show fusion but the dog jumped in.
If I see two artists and one starts to copy another, it bugs me
It's why I don't care for the 4chan smut artist scene. It's good to be influenced by people but don't steal their rendering/ style outright.
True seeing what they did to lapis. But even as an individual her ideas are pretty dangerous. Once she starts telling her stories to other peridots inbetween work like say a world with falling liquid, colorful skies and tasty matter called food; a place where friendly fusions are possible and pearls can learn to fight and build and peridots are able to stand side to side with quartzes as equals. Even if they killed her shortly after returning home shit like that would sound like silly rumors till it starts ringing with certain gems hoping to see that place. It would be smarter to beat the sense out of her so she can tell everyone that everywhere outside of their star system is hell and she's glad to be back home.
I know they can kill her on site but she got cluster information and she reported back like she was behind enemy lines the entire time so it's likely they may cut her some slack.
I'm not trying to push my headcanon btw. I just like the idea that maybe peridot picked up on the same feelings that Rose felt about earth when she first came.
She's extremely autistic.
Were you expecting any other answer?
I wonder how old Peridot actually is.
Are you serious?
Wasn't that Eichmann's excuse? How did that end up, anyway?
You mean the parks, the museums... the cafes, the hash bars... the brothels...
What is the deal with any of them?
>came to protect Earth 5000 years ago
>Don't give a shit about natives
>Uninterested in their development
>Basically waiting for Steven to grow up
Pretty cool thread OP, but could Peridot beat the hero of Star Wars the Force Awakens, Rey?
And I'm not talking Scavenger Rey
No I'm not talking Crack Shot with a Blaster Rey neither
Heck I'm not even talking Ace Pilot Rey
I'm talking Master Jedi, New Captain of the Millenium Falcon Rey, with Luke Skywalker's lightsaber and full control of the force(allowing her to force push, force pull, and Jedi Mind Trick people) Rey?
....I didn't think so.
shhh anon, you can stop shitposting and let it go, it's okay
Oh that pic reminds me, anything new or recent with yellow diamond? Kinda fell off of things after a month or two ago.
I'm gonna come out and say it, this show is bad. Like really fucking bad. People who obsess over this cartoon and analyze through it as if it houses some deeply profound meanings are fucking stupid. Sure it has the basic life lessons meant for eight year-old children but that's it.
I've sat through nearly three years of this show, over seventy episodes and nothing happens... Not only is this /co/ 'god sent' is overrated, it's very, very slow in exposition. The worst sin by in large is the fan base, holy shit is the fan base so retarded. They constantly repeat the same points over and over to defend their baby, they can't ever take criticism, and most come off like fucking pseudo intellectuals that'll do anything to reaffirm themselves. I'm glad 4chan threw them in the trash.
Even if the show didn't have such a horrendous fan base I would've probably dropped the show long ago, yet my curiosity on how long until something actually happens propels me back into the rabbit hole time and time again.
What the hell does anime have anything to do with this show garnering so many unfired chekhov's guns? Not every anime has some grandiose plot that spans over so many years, and neither do they have high art in story telling. This is how I view Steven Universe, and the problems just don't just stem from a story telling point of view (even though that's a huge factor that shouldn't be ignored), Steven Universe is just very bland as a show.
>They constantly repeat the same points over and over to defend their baby, they can't ever take criticism, and most come off like fucking pseudo intellectuals that'll do anything to reaffirm themselves
Why do people like YOU have to repeat the same vitriol in every SU thread with your own pseudo intellectual tone? Are you autistic? Is watching people enjoy the show causing you physical pain?
No? I've already heard all the 'reasons' you can't stand it. They sound like senseless lorefag nitpicking 90% of the time and still do. Can you maybe piss off SU threads where people are very much trying to enjoy the show with like-minded ones then, yes?
I'm not in every SU thread though. I haven't been in one in a long time. But since the recent resurgence of SU being spotted on /co/ I feel like I should be a bitch and tell other people that their show sucks. Because it does... /co/ hates SU for a reason.
I'll put my biases aside and view this show strictly from an entertainment perspective. But before that what do honestly love about this show? What intrigues you so much to watch a re-run on television or listen to the music on YouTube or something of the like? I honestly want to hear other people's thoughts and opinions before I go into my own.
>peridot betrays steven
>Steven beats YD
>Peridot got hit in the fight
>Peridot is crawling to steven begging for help
>He just looks at her
>He turns his back on her
She's definitely the cutest gem, that could be the case.
A damaged gem that overpowered the CG's straight out the gate is also the cutest gem. You can blame Zuke.
You can't heal mental and emotional scars with spit anon
Fuck, I just realized that if Peridot betrays them Gems then she'll never have awkward moments with Lapis.
>"Hey, sorry about letting Jasper put you in a cell and everything."
>"Fuck you, you little green shit. The second Steven turns around I'm blasting ten gallons of ice water up your ass. Now kiss me."
>"I SAID SHUT UP! GIVE ME YOUR LUNCH MONEY!"
this, Peridot is for pure sisterly bond only
Racist homophobic everyman for the viewer to identify with
So let's settle it down now
Are we going to move /sug/ over here the weekend of January or are we just gonna make a talkback thread?
Ok, guys, I gotta tell you, for a while now I had this feeling or rather premonition that Yellow Diamond gonna be good
Like real good
Like Azula-tier good both as villain and as best girl
I got no proof but I got the gut feeling that she'll be the one waifu to rule them all
Are you ready for the Diomond Dog, /co/?
i really wish perifags would fuck off and die, perifags, lapisfags, and pearlfags are all delusional faggots who have utter shit taste and think their garbage waifus are good, when actually the yare pure trash.
jasper, amy, and rose are the acceptable waifus.
Wow, you sure love Quartz, don't you anon?
You're just mad because your waifus are inferior.
It's almost like /sug/ never left.
Peridot is okay as long as it's pre-bathroom episode, Pearl is tolerable as long as anon recognizes her flaws, Lapis is shit.
There is literally nothing wrong with Jasper. All of the "bad" things she did were just her following orders from Yellow Diamond.
>implying it ever did
it just moved to /trash/ for a bit.
i want peridot and lapis to be murdered on screen, badly.
well yeah, she is confirmed dysfunctional, she should have been crushed and recycled right after she was 'born.'
Pearl is only the worst gem because she's had the most characterization and it makes her flaws & mistakes more obvious than the other character's, who in comparison have only fucked up a couple of times.
pearl has has the same amount of characterization as amy if not less.
pearl's flaws are just fucking disasterous for her and make her worst gem. "im mad that my master died (pearl is a slave that belonged to rose, remember) so im going to explode on her son about it and try to get connie to kill herself fighting to protect him.
or how about "im gonna trick garnet into fucking me because of how much of an insecure pace of shit i am.
Amy's is identity crisis, not belonging anywhere, not knowing what she is supposed to be doing. now it is possible that she could betray the gems to get a spot in the army on homeworld or something where she would belong and that would be questionable, but as of yet she has done anything that just fucks over every else because of her issues (except greg, but fuck him right lmao)
>it is possible that she could betray the gems to get a spot in the army on homeworld or something where she would belong
Homeworld military, for one, wouldn't really want a runt. Two, they wouldn't let her eat like a slob, or at all, and she wouldn't get to sleep like the lazy bitch she is or do any of the typical human things she loves doing. She would never leave earth
i dont think anything is wrong with amy's gem, i think her short stature might be her own choice, we have conflicting evidence of what amy is supposed to look like, according to jasper amy was in the ground to long and smaller, we assumed that meant she was supposed to be a jasper, but with extra time was an amethyst instead, but peridot says that amy had no idea what she was supposed to look like, implying that amethysts and jaspers could be seperate warrior castes, not the same thing.
if that were the case, amy could just reform bigger permanently and have a place on homeworld. i think her sense of belonging means more to her than food and pretend sleeping.
You don't remember what happened when she tried to reform bigger? And Peridot literally said she was anatomically wrong. And I think you under estimate how much that fat bitch likes to eat
^ this bastard gets it
peridot said that amethyst was best :^)
Who could hate this perfect little muffin?
here we see someone with shit taste folks
i bet you like retarded gems
jasper that is subjected to heat and pressure become amethysts, thats why its a blurred line.
but it is possible jaspers and amethysts are both warrior castes that are separate from one another.
stop talking like a nigger
thats very possible, but there is evidence to show amethysts are there own thing, and i have reason to believe they fuse together to use giant weapons like this one shown in s1
She's somehow less destructive than Pearl.
depends on your definition of destructive i guess, and plus she's not around enough to be violent
i mean remember the table, all the eggs and drinks wasted
im aware, who's to say all the quartz types dont do the same? im saying they may have been made as a sort of alternate to jaspers, and she was in longer than optimal for amethysts
yes those axes match her color scheme, but weapons that aren't made of energy by the gems themselves that are permanent can be used by anyone, they aren't specific to anyone or any kind of gem, those could have been used by anything. besides, i dont think 2 of the same gem can fuse.
we just need more of the DEEPEST LORE to make sure.
why are you so upset, buddy boy? im just saying you most likely have a shit taste in fictional cartoon characters and have the need to lash out because you know that my fictional cartoon character is better. now bud, this can stop here if you just quit being such a babby.
Why would I be upset? Are you legit autistic?
thats me lol
why wouldnt 2 of the same gem be able to fuse? i suppose gem placement, but they could get past that by saying the gems just wrap around each other in a fractal pattern
>peridot said that amethyst was best :^)
Peridot is blinded by her raging animal lust.
the fact you're lashing out still shows you're upset
stop while youre not ahead, and quit digging your own grave chum.
i read that and dont remember seeing that anywhere.
there has never been a double gem fusion shown, wouldn't it just be a bigger version of the base gems?
an even bigger, stronger amazon musclegirl with multiple arms and a bigger cock, maybe multiple cocks
i can barely imagine.
>thats me lol
Kek don't mind me I'm a dog
I realized how vulnerable a gem is by their gem and not their fake body. Shoot a gem in the body, they poof, shoot them in the gem, they're shattered.
Being the show that it is, I doubt any other gem villains will be trying to kill the CGs or vice versa, but capture them. But it would be cool to see gem armor
who wants some dank fanfiction? i haven't wrong anything new for SU in a while, but i got lots of pastes about sucking girlcock, and i know how much everyone here loves that.
How do you think they determine gem strength in the show?
For example, rubies/sapphires are both harder and more valuable than garnets, but Garnet is clearly more powerful than either of them. On the other hand, diamonds are traditionally the hardest and most expensive gems, and Diamonds seem to be end-boss territory.
Do you think that there's some kind of internal logic, or that they just make things up as they go?
the genetically inferior gem
whats wrong? dont you like big strong musclegirls with big thick cocks dominating you? thrusting their cocks down your throat or pinning you to the bed and putting their dick to your asshole?
>mfw episodes return and all hints of shipping Amethyst and Peridot disappear
i kinda like her story-boarding
but amedot is stupid
>We will never get Pilot Amethyst back
Fucking Sugar but you gave us Non pilot garnet
Accidentally posted in another thread;
Fluorite or ammolite, leaning fluorite because ammolite is commonly several different colors, while fluorite is usually green/purple.
That's her best way to relate to Connie though. Do it for him! Do it for her! Fight until you can't fight anymore then fight again! Love them with all your heart etc.
It's only been 10 years since Rose died. Cut her some slack. Her reason for existing stopped being a thing just a well ago for her lifespan.
I can't fucking take two more weeks without steven, if leaker is gonna leak you gotta leak it NOW
Come on, man, Christmas is right around the corner.
That special time of year where you spend time with all those people that love and adore you and you celebrate together the end of the year before moving on to a brand new, exciting se-
This isn't even the first time in this thread I've seen "Just following orders" thrown around like it completely absolves a character of villain status
You people have heard of the Nuremberg trials right?
