So she's not just impulsive and wants to destroy for the lulz, she's like a dog. If the superior orders her to do something, she'll do everything to accomplish it and please them, but she also has enough free will (like deciding to bring Steven to YD instead of completing her mission)

That jasper motivation was clearly a rushed example but it makes a lot of since, Gems are made rather than born so logically they'd make improvements to the new generations of warrior gems.

Jasper dates back to Rose's rebellion, so is probably a knight among tanks when compared to the modern warrior gems

Jasper is easier to redeem than Peridot. She's the only HW Gem who didn't try to kill Steven, and clearly operates on some sense of honor (unlike Peri, who's driven purely by saving her own skin).

I guess an aggressive but competent leader who does what is best for her Homewrold whose interests just so happen to clash with Stevens.

Maybe to make her not a villain they can do abit of diplomacy, maybe YD makes compromises and isn't just a cackling psychopath as much as a Machiavellian following the interests of her country.

I'm conflicted on this.

I want YD to be a menace, and a threat for Steven to overcome.

But I also feel like its an excellent opportunity for Steven to get some character building, so I'm thinking YD tries to talk to him and be reasonable instead of just shoot first talk later.
>>
>>78347297
Maybe she tries to be diplomatic at first, but when Steven disagrees with her and she decides he can't be reasoned with, she goes full ruthless.
>>
>>78347297
I prefer that YD is calm, polite and doesn't attack first.

But Steven soon realizes sh's cold, unethical, and cares very little about feelings as long as it maintains order, like YHWH in SMT
>>
>>78347325
See I could understand this, but it still feels kinda shallow. Maybe a bit more shade of grey?

Like YD just doesn't attack Steven at all. Crystal Gems? Yep, but Steven she is convinced is really innocent in all this, and not a target.
>>
>>78347325

What if she's so convinced that she's right that Steven cannot reason with her, and is forced into a do or die situation?

Still like the idea of an outside threat. Why would they have to produce masses of soldiers if they weren't involved in a war? The Cluster seems like a pretty big deal to engineer just for the hell of it. If she's fighting for survival, why would she try to reason with Steven at all?
>>
>>78347452
Empathy, maybe. History with Rose? She can still be a character with feelings that aren't all about ambition and efficiency.
>>
>>78347485

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought that the Kindergartens were established before the rebellion. The holes and connection with Amethyst seem to indicate that they were mass producing Jaspers, which once again would be odd to do if they were in a state of peace. Smashing millions of dead gems into a planet-sized weapon also seems pretty ridiculous if they were able to largely nullify the threat of the rebellion without it.

So will steven actually grow up and look older? Cause that would be pretty awesome.

>Just you wait when Sugar makes Jasper DEEP n stuff
[sarcasm] That's impossible. Jasper is confirmed to have no connection to anything else. Especially not the fusion experiments introduced shortly after she was, which all share her most unique physical trait that no other Gem has. Jasper was designed only "to look cool" and there can be no other reason for her appearance. We must unquestioningly accept such out-of-show statements as the whole truth, since writers are required by law to reveal plot points months in advance when asked about a fan theory that happens to be correct.[/sarcasm]
>>
>>78347429
>but Steven she is convinced is really innocent in all this, and not a target.

Or she realizes Steven can be used as an asset, what with having Rose's healing ability.

>>78347452
Somehow adding a bigger threat feels like more of a cop-out than self-preservation. I mean, either way they'd be fighting for survival, at least in the latter scenario the Gems don't become victims just for the sake of sympathy points.
>>
>>78347569
That's true, and we shouldn't forget that Homeworld up to now has been billed as intolerant, authoritarian, xenophobic and despotic coupled with being rampantly imperialistic.

But I think that YD as a gem cares about Gems in her caste, she respects power. So it follows that she respected Rose Quartz, a gem of immense power. Its actually very probable that she and Rose knew each other and were friends at one point.

So YD as a character could be empathetic to Rose as an individual, enough to actually give a damn about Steven, but still be a tough as nails ruler.

You know, I wrote that reply out then looked at your post again. My post was answering you very last question; why she would reason with Steven, not about the peace or war stuff.

Two things:

First, we've only seen what the Crystal Gems have shown us. Given that they fought against Homeworld, they aren't exactly reliable as a reference for who is bad and who is good.

Second, Homeworld TECHNICALLY hasn't done anything wrong. They need to sacrifice planets in order to procreate; a species has only a responsibility to itself and it's own people. Homeworld need not care for the lives of some massively under-evolved apes when the survival of Gemkind is at stake.

I mean... holy shit, look at the horrendous things Humanity does to EACH OTHER, and we all share the same planet. Do you think if our only method of reproduction was to rape an inhabited planet we'd hesitate for even one second to hatefuck every last living man, woman, and child there to death?

I agree, it's not a good story direction to have an established antagonist say "we're not so evil, those OTHER aliens are evil, go fight them!", because either it's still Good vs. Evil with a red herring in the middle, or now there's a whole other faction to develop morally ambiguous motives for.

That's true. Although, it could be done right, even great if handled correctly.

Linking the antagonists reasons to fallout from whatever Rose did would be a great way to do it. Say a Gem civil war broke out and hasn't ended since as a result of Rose- that would be enough to make Steven feel something as a character and flesh out Homeworld and gem culture whilst providing a motivation for callousness that doesn't end with the characters in question being "evil" in the end

Yes, it is a choice. No one was forced to do it.
I can conceive of other ways to make her arms less plain that don't cause her to resemble the fusion experiments. Giving her gloves would be just as effective and simpler to animate.

>The fact that opals also have stripes.

Not all opals have stripes. In fact, very few do. Most have spots, speckles, or prismatic filtering. Some have very solid colors, or change colors depending on which angle you hold them or how light hits the surface.

An opal is possibly the single worst example you could use for your little theory, friend.

Well, do you have any evidence that she didn't? It's completely possible she was enhanced with shards during the war, and that would not contradict anything we know about the timeline.

>>
>>78350025

It doesn't need to be a single color. The simple fact is that there's no hard or fast rule for how a gem's skin should be. The colors of Opal's gems match that of real opals, and that's all that matters. Or do you think they really want to animate the constantly changing flecks of color within an opal as part of Opal's skin?

Jasper isn't a fusion, she's not a mutant, she's just a jasper. Deal with it.

Where do you think Garnet gets them?
>>
>>78350456

Emerald's pretty much a given, seeing as how it's the last precious gem.

Well known semi-precious stones like turquoise, topaz, and agate.

Maybe other organic gems like amber and abalone.

I don't think we're going to have a proper introduction to every gem, there's too many. The only one I really feel confident about is emerald, due to it being extremely well known and the last precious gem we haven't seen. It'll be interesting to see what other gems ultimately get chosen as developed characters.

It's bullshit. She didn't say there'd be no villains, just that the main antagonists of the show were going to be whole forces, not a single iconic being.

Human culture is also completely unaffected by a massive alien invasion in our ancient history.

I don't think the writers think too hard about this shit. Because the CG should be worshipped as immortal god queens if human behavior was the least bit consistent between our worlds. They aren't even famous, people are actually wierded out by gem 'magic' even though it would be the crux of many fields of scientific, cultural, and historical inquiry.

It's a fun show, but I'm not going to pretend the world is well built, or be disappointed when it doesn't suddenly do a better job after not caring for so long.

What if the fighting took place in remote locations, like the Kindergarten?

I doubt they'll go to lengths to make yellow diamond/Jasper into good people, but rather make homeworld gems in general feel sympathetic, maybe there'll be some important reason or ingrained mindset that they have which is why they turn planets into kindergardens/gem worlds, something that the protags may be able to fix.

Jasper is less of a dick than Peridot, and has done less wrong than Peri has at this point. She acted based on what she thought was right, rather than selfishness, and she had a sense of honor rather than playing dirty.

I'll post my shit tier crack pot theory too, because all the cool kids are doing it.

That bismuth is somehow kinda Lion's gem in a way. Lion is some type of weird gem creature that was created as a byproduct when Rose made Steven. He's an amalgamation of all the leftover things that she didn't put into Steven, like her motherly instincts, and fierce warrior nature, her vast interior and shit like that. That's why none of the gems saw Lion before Steven was born, and why Lion is so protective of him.

>>78344110
Everything the CGs seem to stand for can be turned on it's head when you have to apply it to a group larger than 3-6 people.

Fusion alone is a mess. Just look at Sug ... I mean, I'm pretty damn sure none of the gems who made up sug WANTS to kill Steven and Pearl but Sug (a temporary HUGE FUCKING "War Machine") was ready and willing to crush em all. What if 2 gems pulled a Jasper/ Lapis on a 3rd gem so that they could use the fusion for their own means? How can you prove the 3rd gem was tricked into partaking in the fusion that may have caused so much damage and loss of life? Fusions can't be "punished", they're experiences that end when they decide to or can't stay that way any longer.

How do you stop that? Shun fusion. Turn it into a thing you only do to fight for the cause. Have gems fuse with others of their type so that they don't become something new, they just become bigger and likely better at their task. Make this a cultural norm and teach it to all new gems like Pdot.
>>
>>78356659
and Steven is not how fusions work. Rose did some weird ass science/magic to make him. is it really so hard to imagine she did some weird shenanigans to make Lion too?
>>
>>78356747
Makes sense, really.
Garnet and Amethyst aren't even particularly powerful gems, but they're too stable to fuse despite their chaotic nature.

why do immortal holograms need to reproduce?
especially at the cost of all other life on a kindergarden planet?
And even if they die, their lives are far FAR greater than 6000 years, and they don't have/have looked for other methods during that time?

For their species to be at equilibrium Their massive reproduction pipeline that the kindergarten showed implied they die at a huge rate, but from what besides their own infighting?
If not at equilibrium, then their excessive reproduction IS a horrendous thing

the entire need for gems to reproduce AT ALL is underdeveloped to the point of being a plothole
>>
>>78345185
>-rigid caste system
Cultural differences aren't inherently evil, it's just hard to change things from the way they've always done them, especially when you're talking about plenty of those lives having potentially been there since the very beginning.
>-destroys planets to produce gems regardless of its inhabitants
Taking life in order to grow, survive and flourish is no different from human beings. They didn't recognizes us as being equals so didn't afford us any rights, it's understandable.
>-"harvests" gems as punishment, whatever that is
Punishment for those that break the law is understandable.

You're dealing with an alien culture, you can't label everything they do as evil just because it isn't what you would do, otherwise they are justified in killing us solely because we are "evil" as well.
>>
>>78356882
Hard to say as gems are immortal, but CAN be killed

So why increase their numbers 6000 years ago?
>>
>>78356882
It's not so much a lifespan thing as much as an outnumbering the opposition thing.

They're creating more soldiers, not creating heirs.
Those soldiers then defeat another planet, and use it to create more soldiers.

Obviously they have to leave some planets alive because if you don't what was the fucking point of taking it over?

To expand the empire. A larger workforce allows you to do more. This also applies to culture in a very basic way.

>>78356930

>Obviously they have to leave some planets alive because if you don't what was the fucking point of taking it over?
Nothing about gems implies they need live planets

>>78356961
Immortals don't necessarily imply the need to grow an empire

And the destructive method they use only increases all other animosity toward them

for example: Transformers are explicitly hated in thier universe for thier destructive influence on the entire universe, and they don't even need to kill planets

>Immortals don't necessarily imply the need to grow an empire
Not sure what you mean here, if they have ambitions they need ways to fulfill those and a workforce makes sense.

>And the destructive method they use only increases all other animosity toward them
There probably wasn't any other way known to them. Technically there still isn't, Steven just replaced a Gem essentially, they didn't increase their number. Though they told us we would see whether or not there was a way to make new gems outside of the injectors.
>Transformers are explicitly hated in thier universe for thier destructive influence on the entire universe
We don't even know if there are any other sapients in the show, and those people that hate the warring of the transformers would have hated the Decepticons winning far more and coming to rape their planet simply because they don't give a damn.
>>
>>78356987
First of all, shit happens. Gems are ageless beings but they still can be destroyed. Accidents can happen to them, and they would need to be replaced. That's why gems need to make more of themselves.

About kindergardens, we don't know if there are any other means of making new gems, so as far as we know it's the only viable way of making new gems.
>>
I love you guys
>>
Wait, you people do know that the whole "injecting gems into planets" thing is relatively new to gem kind ... right?

Pdot called the kindergarten injectors "first era" ... they only came up with this tech around the time of the war which is with in the life time of most of the team.
>>
>>78357014
>First of all, shit happens. Gems are ageless beings but they still can be destroyed
I'm not saying it can't. I'm saying that killing off a life planet Is not worth more gems even TO GEMS in the long run, which is the normal run to an immortal

And you would still look for other methods, even if you only knew of one

>>78357009
Ambition does not validate atrocities, which was the issue I was arguing

>We don't even know if there are any other sapients in the show,
In transformers, we do
In SU we don't, but what other reason would they need a fucking planet killing weapon? More Infighting? Again another reason that their atrocities are unjustified either way
And if sugar says there are no villains then the other spaients wouldn't be villains either

>>78357044
The injectors may be new

the methodology of gem birth may not

however it is likely considering Gems before they started space travel makes the birth methodology unsustainable on a single planet

My guess is that though HW makes gems naturally it doesn't make enough for them to replenish their population after all their warring with each other.

So they decided to research ways to make more gems and even create NEW gems.

So they gravitate to the caste/ class system and make gems for certain jobs that will help them advance.

Then they find out that they can make gems on other planets and happened upon earth.
>>
>>78357097
/co/ is not one person

the injectors where used in the first era

if gems have not always had interstellar travel, then this was before the first era

if there was a before the first era, then the gem birth methodology was different in some way

if you caim that gems where always interstellar, then that remains to be seen, but there would still be a time period before the first era corresponding to the first set of gems, and thier discovery of how they reproduce

humans reproduce due to compulsion of orgasm, gems so far have no compulsion to harvest themselves and bury the harvest, and in fact peridot feared it, therefore the first generation of gems would have to find out

this is why i suspect that all gems are a slave race to some other biological race

everyone of those is still linked to the unexplained expansion motivator

>>78357194
I'm guessing that Rose built her army under a blanket of rebellious misfits who wanted a place outside of HW's and their respective Diamond's strict rules and culture.

Just look at their attitudes towards fusion, they all enjoy it for different reasons but Garnet list it as her reason for fighting and sees it as something much more personal to her. Pearls are slave gems on HW and Rose gave her the chance to be free and become so much more.

>>
>>78357291
Yeah, this. Rose's faction was large enough to cause Homeworld proper to abandon a planet with an at-one-time functioning Kindergarten.

They weren't a ragtag group of misfits; they were a paramilitary force at the lightest.
>>
>>78357291
... lol, what?

They "Won"?
Only 3-4 of them survived without turning into monsters and we know from PDot that HW labeled it an abandoned colony and thought ALL gems were dead and gone. HW also turned it into a giant egg for a planet destroying gem monster.

The CG didn't win shit, they survived because HW thought them all dead 6k years ago. But when they stop the cluster they will have won some victory.
>>
>>78357316
we don't even know whose sides those casualties are
hell, Rose had a kindergarden full of quartz warrior gems, and they had a home advantage, and still in the end, they didn't win
>>
>>78344110
no, she said there wasn't going to be a recurring vilian in the first season, which was to focus mainly on the interrelationships between the CGs. and that's exactly what we got, unless you want to count Lapis who was really only an antaginist the first time she was shown, or Jasper who was intro duced in the last episode of season one, I suppose Peridot was a violation of this, but she was late late season and was more of a vanguard, not much of a threat on her own but represented gem kind regaining an interest in Earth.
>>
>>78357338
>they survived because
because HW put a bomb in the planet and backed off

If HW thought they where all dead why didn't they come back and turn the kindergarten back on?

Because it was probably decided to use the planet to make the Cluster
>>

>we don't even know whose sides those casualties are

>hell, Rose had a kindergarden full of quartz warrior gems, and they had a home advantage, and still in the end, they didn't win
There is no reason to assume they would be loyal to rose, even if she was In charge prior to rebellion, nor that they would remain loyal to her after she explicitly rebelled
>>
>>78357404
Hang on, why do you think HW abandoned the planet then?

if it wasn't rose's rebellion, then what?

they put the cluster there because the planet was STILL kindergarten viable, otherwise the cluster wouldn't grow

you don't just blow up a kindergarten viable planet, if you think the rebellion is dead, when they supposedly have such a huge demand for replacements and the only methodology is a kindergarten

youth does not override self preservation, also regardless of age, quarts kindergarten holes are fucking huge so your idea of youth applying to gems, might just be due to amethysts funky birth, and isolation on earth, and not their actual mentality

hologram warriors, designed for battle, would not be born without the imperative to obey the caste hierarchy, TD would override Rose, due to superiority

Because due to the result of war, there were thousands of gem casualties which in turn were used as material to make a giant artificial fusion, The Cluster.

I don't know the reason why and how the that type of fusions are made, but that was the reason for not continuing the work of the Kindergarden

How are you this dense?

1. the cluster is a gem
2. gems are planted in viable planets to absorb some sort of life force and grow
3. the cluster was inserted in the earth to grow
3b. grow by absorbing some life force, right?

Your entire arguments chain of events depends on HW coming to the conclusion that earth was no longer viable as a kindergarten independent of the rebellion
If it can't be a kindergarten, HOW DID THE CLUSTER GROW

It can't be used for kindergardens because they will use up the lifeforce to make the Cluster grow.

It was a choice between continuing the work of the Kindergarden or growing the Cluster (which is technically a giant fusion, i might add)

>>78357640
>If the though all the rebellion was dead

PDot sent a fucking eye ball to the planet to check for life.

She was SHOCKED to find that there were gems there.

HW legit thought all the gems there were dead.

"Why not keep using the kindergarten?"
For w/e reason they found it unsuitable for that and decided to do a cluster experiment that's gonna destroy the earth and be big enough to fuck up planets.

That's part of why the CGs THINK they won.

To them the earth is safe, there's no other gems on earth, gem production is completely done and they haven't been visited by gems in 6k years. What they didn't know is that HW simply set up something that would break outta the planet sometime after they did w/e they did that fucked all but 3 of the CGs.

Atrocities is completely debatable from their POV.

For self defense from another species. In which case it's hard to say they aren't justified.

Pretty much. I mean fusion between different gems creates something completely unprecedented with no way of preparing for in terms of abilities, and the personality is even worse.

Like even with same-gem fusion, their personality will be determined by whatever their dynamic was, and it's entirely possible that something ugly could rise to the surface that wasn't initially apparent, like with Sugilite.

Killing a planet is not up for relative interpretation
It is excessive, it is mutually exclusive, and it is a complete loss of that resource even from their perspective

Humans don't kill ALL life to eat
Humans life is not mutually exclusive with other life
Humans food production and reproduction uses renewable resources

Humans need to eat, gems don't, killing isn't even necessary for them, as it is with us

Effectively gem life is unexplained, to the point of being pure evil
Gems kill entire planets to reproduce
Gems don't even need to expand and they do
Gems consume a non-renewable resource which others need (without consuming it)

Even when we do need to kill, we as a species still have standards about that, and don't do it excessively to the point of planecide, and try to do it humanely, and we certainly now do not kill an entire species just because "we need to eat it"

>self defense
from what other species in universe?

>Misunderstandings
then no one ever would be considered villains, and i doubt sugar was being so obfuscating with her proclamation as you imply here

The singular imperative of all living things is to reproduce. Gems are beholden to no other law but to propagate.

>Gems consume a non-renewable resource which others need (without consuming it)

And by consuming that non-renewable resource, every gem is born without the need to consume anything further. No food, no drink, no sleep, because they are powered by the life force of the planet they devoured.

They're doing the exact same thing humans do, except they do it like a Cossack drinking his vodka: in one dreadful gulp, instead of sipping at it like a pussy Englishman.

I suppose both of you missed the episode where Steven passed out next to a door from sleep deprivation. To say Steven chooses to sleep like other Gems would contradict everything we've been led to believe about Steven. Steven probably wouldn't even need to eat, either. But his body isn't an illusion, so it wouldn't make sense that his body didn't need to get energy from food and sleep. I'm not saying I can't be wrong, I'm just saying the writing would not make sense if that were the case. You're welcome to add anything that refutes any of this.

She may know what a human is, but she doesn't know what a child is. And it is even confirmed that gems were never children when they were made.
>>
>>78358678
Yeah but he can also do some straight up Akira / The Thing level shapeshifting, age spontaneously, and his gem literally has magical healing powers. I'm willing to believe that all of Stevens biological needs can be handled by his gem.once his powers have developed enough. Everything we see about Steven emphasizes the fact that hes still learning.

But can some explain the giant black shard bird? Or the Roc as we call it

>>78358801
I'm sure Jasper, I can't remember the term now, but, kinda violated her oirders or her position by changing the objectives of the mission.
>>
>>78358817
Could just be mentally broken gems, its implied that reforming requires some kind of conscious effort, which is why amethyst got fucked up by rushing it so quickly. So maybe monsters are what happens when the gem inside gives up and just reforms as projection of raw emotion. Then that entity kind of takes on will of its own.

To her it was Rose.

There's no such thing as "child" in the gem world.
Besides Steven has above average endurance and strength than a mediocre human being.

Unknowingly of it being a child. It holds absolutely no relevance.

You're just grasping at straws to piush your meme
>>
>>78358812
>I'm willing to believe that all of Stevens biological needs can be handled by his gem

If that was true then he wouldn't be "half-human." He'd be just like any other Gem. He may have the powers of Gems, but everything else is as human as it gets.
>>
>>78358895
Gems can SHAPESHIFT at will. She thought Steven was Rose, an enemy she had assumed was dead for the past 5000 years. If anything that made her immediately view Steven as an equal.

Intentions matter.

>>78358847

The commander in the field is always correct until she has to justify herself to the Command Staff back home.
>>
>>78358914
She may or may not know it is wrong to hit a child but it is still morally wrong to hit a child
>>
>>78358924
do humans shapeshift into cats?
can they age at will and reverse the process?

The "human" parts of Steven sure do act more like gem parts, its just that he has no conscious control of it at this point.

That's not true at all.
>>
>>78358948
it's morally wrong to be this obtuse. the whole point is that Jasper treated Steven like Rose, because she doesn't understand the concept of what Steven is.

We didn't need confirmation from anyone that she is selfish. The first thing Lapis does when she's free is steal a planet's ocean to try and go home. The second major thing she does is become an unstable fusion of hate that could endanger the planet as well just because she wants to feel in control for once. I mean, it was pretty clear to me that she only cares about herself and maybe Steven sometimes.
>>
>>78357376
HW knew they weren't all dead; they thought Rose and a handful of Gems were still there.

Rose fought well enough for HW to decide that re-taking the Earth wasn't worth the effort, since they had nothing to lose they decided to use it as a testing ground for the cluster.

Gems don't have a concept of children; this is explicitly stated in one of the Classrom Gems shorts.

Jasper thought Steven was Rose - A fully-grown, battle-hardened gem.
>>
>>78358895
Doing something wrong by accident cannot be used to say that person is a bad person.
>>
>>78359016

He is, however, a very capable enemy combatant even though she did not know that. And he had Rose's gem, which basically made him the enemy commander. In real combat conditions, capturing or killing the enemy commander (especially after they've killed hundreds of your comrades/humiliated your army previously) can often take priority over real objectives.

Imagine if Steven had reacted with his powers instead of attempting diplomacy, and enabled the Crystal gems to inflict casualties upon Jasper's force?

While Lapis is useless (as an informant who knows more about modern earth than she does about modern Homeworld), and as a warrior Jasper's life is meant to be sacrificed (though as an officer she's more important than lower level warriors would be), Peridot was her escort target and if she got dusted (or captured and reeducated!) Jasper would be in for an asschewing of epic proportions.

Basically, Jasper can't go home now, so she might as well stay under the ocean or join the Gems.

To humans, yes it is. To gems it isn't, because gems have no fucking idea what children are and what are the morals for humans.
You're trying to impost human views onto gems, especially gems who have never lived with humans.

what's the line of thought here?
>>
>>78359148
Actually, Steven summoned the giant discus shield with Rose's symbol to deflect the ship's finger laser. That's why Jasper thought he was Rose in the first place.

It's also worth mentioning that Jasper de-summoned her crash helmet before knocking him out. So she probably intended only to incapacitate him, without causing too much damage.

>>78359180
Also notable. Steven is shown to be a powerful and skilled fighter in some contexts, though a real fight can end very suddenly if one person makes a mistake.

>No matter what you think they are.

You're a moral retard. Intentions matter, that's why they play such a huge role in criminal trials. You know there are situations where people have killed children and the law saw not fit to punish them because there was no reason to think it was intentional? That's how you make moral judgments. That's how adult society functions.

If we operated morally, as a society, in the way that you prescribe, there would be no difference between first degree murder and accidental deaths. Everyone would get the same punishment because killing for any reason is wrong.

But we don't operate that way because everyone with an above room temperature IQ can reason that the intentions of the person committing an act are the best predictor of their future behavior. That makes it unfair to rob them of the moral context of the situation they found themselves in.

Jasper saw Steven as a long presumed dead enemy, she didn't even know that Steven and Rose are separate entities. You are saying that a soldier is acting immorally for taking an enemy leader into custody. Keeping in mind that she was perfectly capable of killing him and only took him prisoner. She may have been a dick about it with the gloating, but morally it was pretty cut and dry.

They probably won't, yeah, but I think they could learn to be better friends and maybe go on to be okay people.

Or, at least, Jasper could die an honorable death and Lapis's voice actor can still be kind of a badass.

I feel like this next arc is going power up steven well atleast in the arc after maybe so that he can defeat/ally yellow diamond. After this because of the way that gem culture works she will have to align herself with steven also meaning jasper will too.

What if Steven and Jasper fight? And somehow Steven wins? I mean Jasper always wanted to fight Rose, and she also said she respected her tactics.

What if she learns to respect Steven after a good fight?
Yes I know, Steven can't fight, at least not a pure quartz gem blah blah but I have that feeling this is what will happen.

i cant wait for malachite to break apart and for jasper to fucking destroy lapis, beating her to an inch of her life, dragging her lifeless body up in front of the temple, and then tear her gem out, making sure steven is watching. then slowly crush the blue cunt's gem into tiny shards and dust that mixes with the sand, never to be reformed.

She wasn't really "backed into a corner". She could have easily defused and held Jasper in a underwater trench, but she decides to allow their minds to fuse. She's bringing punishment on someone else because she wants to, not because she has to.

The fact that people still excuse her actions as "she was weak, she couldn't have said no to fusion" is retarded enough. We're talking about someone who took the whole ocean and kept fighting with her gem cracked. She literally had the ocean next to her, she could just stomp Jasper and fly away. But no, she chose to be an idiot and trap Jasper in a toxic fusion.


I feel sorry for Malachite and Jasper.
