Immediate reaction to We Need to Talk

Every time a Rose Quartz song seemed likely we didn’t get it, yet it sneaks in here. And so well, too! Of course if you’ve seen the episode you know that the song isn’t the biggest bombshell. Who’s ready for an update to the Crystal Gem size chart? 🙂

We learned a lot about Rose in this episode. So much. This is probably more characterization than she’s had in all of the prior episodes combined. Not too much lore (except for… well, you know), but a whole lot of characterization.

    Based on the near perfect formation of raibow quartz I hope we can all agree that rosexpearl is CONFIRMED and people can stop saying it’s dysfunctional and one-sided.

      • Manny Fleurmond on June 18, 2015 at 5:26 pm

      I think Pearl wishes it were confirmed. I think they were close enough to be a stable fusion but if she was with Pearl, you’d think she’d be more hesitant with getting it on with Mr. Universe.

      Also dat mic drop

        • Freakazette on June 18, 2015 at 5:31 pm

        She only has one more eye than Garnet, who is in a super canon confirmed relationship.
        What and why Rose was willing to sacrifice for Steven is a different discussion.

          • Manny Fleurmond on June 18, 2015 at 5:36 pm

          You know who also had one more eye than Garnet: Malachite.

          We just assume that the fusion is stable; doesn’t mean they were in a legit relationship. From how Pearl has be acting the past few eps, she wishes she were with Rose but has been seriously friend-zoned, or at least that’s my interpretation. If was a legit stable relationship, wouldn’t they have mimicked Garnet and stayed fused all the time?

            • Freakazette on June 18, 2015 at 5:55 pm

            Malachite has six arms and no legs, she is not a stable fusion.
            You are wrong and I have no desire to argue with someone who can’t see the nose in front of their face

            • Manny Fleurmond on June 18, 2015 at 6:05 pm

            Wow, okay. I’m wrong about what? Stable fusion (which it probably is, I’m not arguing that) or that stable fusion = romantic relationship (which nothing in the show states as fact.). I see Pearl and Rose being compatible enough for their fusion being stable but nothing in the show thus far shows that Rose ever reciprocated Pearl’s advances.

            • Freakazette on June 18, 2015 at 6:18 pm

            I’m just super tired of arguing about this. We have seen literally nothing of their actual relationship in their prime and all the stuff people say is weird about Pearl’s behavior is because she’s GRIEVING the loss of what was likely the gem equivalent of her life partner. We HAVE seen that Rose shared certain secrets with Pearl that she didn’t share with the other Gems and that Pearl is AT LEAST under the impression that she and Rose shared the type of relationship that none of the other gems could relate to her loss (and I doubt Rose would lead her on for so long) and now this stable fusion which is second only to, and only BARELY to Garnet, who is in an ACTUAL CONFIRMED RELATIONSHIP. As for them not being fused eternally, who cares? I see it as the difference between a couple who’s joined at the hip vs ones who hang out a lot and love each other but also maintain separate lives, friends, and activities. Garnet is the only other gem relationship we’ve seen but that doesn’t mean all gem relationships have to be identical. All of this crap with Pearl being emotional is BECAUSE she lost Rose, who was a key part of her existence for 6,000+ YEARS.

            The FACT is that it’s demonstrable through canon that the more healthy a relationship, the less-deformed the fusion is. We go from Malachite with four eyes six arms and no legs to Sugilite with four arms and extra eyes to Opal with two eyes and four arms to Rainbow Quartz whose ONLY DEFORMITY is two sets of eyes and finally Garnet who only has one extra. All signs point to PEARL AND ROSE FIVE EVER. sorry not sorry. You’re wrong.

            *deep breaths* and this is why I said I didn’t want to argue I am so sick of this crap.

          1. I don’t think it was that one-sided. “Sworn to the Sword” shows that Rose (potentially) wasn’t okay with Pearl constantly sacrificing herself for her sake, so that’s definitely something. But even after today’s episode, even with all of that sexual tension, I still think Pearl felt more for Rose than vice versa.

            • Manny Fleurmond on June 18, 2015 at 6:49 pm

            Agreed. I’m not saying there wasn’t a relationship, I just don’t think it was that kind of relationship. Rose loved her; she loved all the gems, but I don’t think she did the way Pearl wanted to be loved.

            • Freakazette on June 18, 2015 at 7:18 pm

            Even Luck Sworn to the Sword shows that Pearl initially wanted to sacrifice herself for Rose, it also pretty clearly shows that Rose addressed that behavior. Pearl was indoctrinated by Gem culture to think she was nothing for thousands of years and during their time together Rose probably made great strides in building her confidence. As I’ve stated, we’ve still seen nothing from what were presumably the golden years of their relationship, we’ve only seen the very beginning and the very end of their time together and it’s very possible given all the context that we’ve seen (detailed above) that there was a ROMANTIC relationship between them.

            I believe whatever makes Feakazette the most frustrated.

    • XxBongQueeshaxX on June 18, 2015 at 5:27 pm

    so , bisexual gems confirmed?

      • Freakazette on June 18, 2015 at 6:01 pm

      imo it’s been confirmed for a while, people are just letting their own biases get in the way of seeing the truth.

    • XxBongQueeshaxX on June 18, 2015 at 5:39 pm

    jealous pear confirmed , yes pear

    • Freakazette on June 18, 2015 at 6:30 pm

    guys I’m sorry I otp’d all over your blog ;.;

  1. Biases? Really? REAAAAAAALY?

    I don’t think I want to have this dance, thank you very much.


      • Freakazette on June 18, 2015 at 7:24 pm

      biases is the nice word for it… >.>
      if you don’t want to “have this dance” then why did you reply? I don’t really understand what you mean. I’m not saying that you’re a homophobe but the fandom’s collective inability to imagine a gay relationship as canon is a problem. (and don’t bring Ruby and Sapphire into this because so yes there are deniers)

    • Something Witty on June 18, 2015 at 8:33 pm

    Still no Pearl Garnet fusion. I just want Sepessartine to be a thing.

    • XxBongQueeshaxX on June 18, 2015 at 11:31 pm

    hmm , so we would get rainbow quartz if pearl and steven fused?

    • XxBongQueeshaxX on June 18, 2015 at 11:32 pm

    I think we can all say fully that rose kept everything together if/when they were all fused together

    • XxBongQueeshaxX on June 18, 2015 at 11:39 pm

    human beans

    • XxBongQueeshaxX on June 18, 2015 at 11:43 pm

    The only gem who is known to be emotionally mature is garnet , because she is comprised of two gems it makes here more mature than single gems , for example pearl is over 6000 years old yet she was still jealous of greg, but if it were a 60 year old human or even a 40 year old human that human wouldn’t have been jealous.

    • XxBongQueeshaxX on June 19, 2015 at 2:26 am

    WAIT if fusing is gem “sex” then does that mean stevonnie IS STEVEN AND CONNIE HAVE….

    • WayneK on June 19, 2015 at 3:54 am

    Does Stevonnie have any magical abilities? omg I want to know this so bad

      • XxBongQueeshaxX on June 19, 2015 at 2:17 pm

      since Connie doesn’t have a gem or a weapon that means stevonnies weapon is a shield so my guess is no stevonnie doesn’t have any other special abilities than Stevens regular gem abilities

    • Something Witty on June 19, 2015 at 4:29 am

    I think the biggest bombshell was that Amethyst plays fetch.

      • XxBongQueeshaxX on June 19, 2015 at 4:31 am


      • gc13 on June 19, 2015 at 10:34 am

      That’s so fetch.
