A new short was just released detailing fusion
This brings to question whether gems fused out of love back on homeworld or not. Is that just a trait the crystal gems share do you think?
I always thought that fusion strength was exponential, like how Ruby and Sapphire are both midgets and Garnet is a little bit higher then them stacked upon each other but Sugilite is many items the height of Garnet and Amethyst put together and also much stronger. Just a thought.
from what peridot said that'd make sense
who knows what training does for gems though, if Pearl trains a lot and Amy doesn't train at all, could Pearl become better than Amy?
I'm not sure if the person who made this was a genius or just a god-tier delusional person.
Do you think every single person who could ever have possibly wanted to discuss it were all present for the first-and-only permissible thread?
Some of us work for a living, you know.
But Peridot said she had all the strength of a quartz warrior despite being overcooked.
Who knows with Pearl. Apparently she's not suppose to be a fighter at all, but she became strong
in the real way.
them throwing in the main reason gems fuse is just to calm down tumblr from getting out of their cage again.
to answer your question i bet they didn't and that's why rose defected
On most cases, I would agree, but this is Steven Universe we're talking about here. Lesbianism is pretty much common now.
Well I'm inspired now, thanks anon
I just you're just mad cause you're single.
I know I'm mad.
I'd maybe watch but that'd run the risk of hearing him swear and be angry and I don't think I want to hear Steven get pissed and start cursing at video games
Their early work was a little too new wave for my taste, but when Sports came out in '83, I think they really came into their own, commercially and artistically. The whole album has a clear, crisp sound, and a new sheen of consummate professionalism that really gives the songs a big boost. He's been compared to Elvis Costello, but I think Huey has a far more bitter, cynical sense of humor.
> this short pretty much confirms fusion to be gem sex
>Fusion dances are basically mating dances
>combined strengths of the Gems collaborating
>2 beings generate a new one
>main reason to fuse is love
Sucrose sure knows how to hide things
Once again, the day is saved. Thanks to the Powerpuff Gems!
>being a single entity
>not being comprised of countless singularities brought together to imitate any one entity
Do you even John Carpenter's The Thing, you bastard bitch?
>The main reason to fuse is love
I hope we finally see Daily Dose in the show
did you not watch that whole fight?
Steven has to step in because Amethyst was beating the crap out of Pearl
It doesn't matter how much Pearl trains her inferior form, she will never be a better fighter than Amethyst or a better engineer than Peridot
Yes it is! In '87, Huey released this, Fore, their most accomplished album. I think their undisputed masterpiece is "Hip to be Square", a song so catchy, most people probably don't listen to the lyrics. But they should, because it's not just about the pleasures of conformity, and the importance of trends, it's also a personal statement about the band itself. Hey Paul!
TRY GETTING A RESERVATION AT DORSIA NOW, YOU FUCKING STUPID BASTARD! YOU, FUCKING BASTARD!
If Steven can make anything he wants in Rose's room, why doesn't he make Rose Quartz? We've already seen her communicate with him through the tiny floating whale and probably cloud connie, so it would be like she's actually there. What's stopping him?
Because Rose's Room scans Steven's memories and imagination and uses them to make constructs.
In Rose's Room (the episode), the room built a replica of Beach City out of Steven's memories. Greg was the most detailed since he's the one Steven knows best.
In Catch and Release, the room built a replica of Peridot, but couldn't construct a complete memory of what she said because not even Steven knew what she was going to say about the Cluster.
The Room might not be able to craft a replica of Rose because, as we've been told throughout the series, Steven doesn't have any of memories of Rose because they can't exist at the same time. All he has is secondhand information, and that might not be enough. Even if the Room could piece something together from that, it'd still just be a replica.
its probably just the room imitating Rose, I get the feel that room can imitate people who have actually been inside of it much better than people who haven't
hence why Lars and Sadie were terrible, but Connie was fine since she was in the room, and the Greg is made was also pretty good, since Rose likely showed him her room at some point
>that episode where the AI malfunctions
She actually was losing at the end of the fight.
But it gave us an opportunnity to see Pearl, that is generally weaker than Amethist, beating her with skills and training, and showed that Amethist could only overcome it by sheer power.
But Amethist is weaker than a "perfect Amethist", and would be totally destroyed by a gem like Jasper.
Is anyone else disappointed?
I mean when I saw there was going to be an episode I was hoping for an actual episode.
was a good laugh to be honest
The real best reason to fuse is to become an unstoppable war god. Just saying.
I am a brazillian guy. What you need senpai?
Dude everybody on the show knows.They shited all over Ian when he said that what they were doing was wrong.
How the fuck do you screw up that badly? I hope that was intentional.
friendly reminder that alexandrite is the veku of failed fusions.
well not /sug/, isn't she just the cutest?
No, the fans shat on Ian.
While homeworld views fusion as nothing more than 'a tactic to make weak gems stronger', the Crystal Gems clearly view fusion as a more personal and intimate experience. Definitely Garnet and Pearl, considering the first is a perma-fusion literally made of love, and the second used not being able to fuse as the reason why she was a more suitable partner for Rose than Greg.
No.SJW from Tumblr started spreading rumors about him saying that /ss/ art of the show was ok.
>tell fanartist to kill herself
>creators of show everyone is shitting on her for creating fanart for tells them to stop
>they shit on the creators
really tumblrites are lesser than people, if there is a group of people who should all die, it's the rabid tumblrites
You don't wanna see it when there's no make up involved, trust me. It's flatter than a week old coke.
You would lose your mind and start a new religion if you saw her.
brainwashed tumblrwhales who think they're fighting for shit
fuck off, all these wastes of flesh are past the point of breaking, they're broken husks of life and should be extinguished
It's a nice drawing, but why would the ultimate fusion be black?
What black gemstones have cool enough names?
>Stop prioritizing the feelings of your fandom over the feelings of your actual target demographic.
I agree. They should start by not caring about the feelings of soapboxing shitbags like this.
Well it's not their fault for having an illness i'll say that but it just ain't my cup of tea.
because i'm straight
>Fandom becomes inundated by shitheads who pull shit like that and make the entire fandom look like a bunch of shitheads
You too have known butthurt. And that butthurt torments you still. You hope hatred might one day replace the pain, but it never goes away. It makes a general hideous, inside and out!
Wouldn't you agree, /sug/?
We are both demons you and I, our humanity will not return. We've nowhere to run, no place to hide. And that is why I'll show you my demon.
Who is hoping now for a bully themed episode now?
The worst part would be that people from tumblr would sympathize with the one being bullied and not understand that the episode would be an allusion to the things that happened.
deviantare loves abusing the hell out of tv shows.
don't you just love the bait?
I mean he is the closest they have to a bully, but its rather clear what kind of issues drive him to act the way he does, Lars isn't good for a bullying is bad message, Lars is good for the whole bullies are often messed up themselves message
The issue however with any cyberbullying is that it isn't done by a single messed up person but its typically the result of multiple people working under mob mentality and not realize how much they can hurt someone
We may never know if it's a he or a she but we can all agree on this pic.
>Do you like Rebecca Sugar?
>Her early work was a little too weird for me. But when Steven Universe debutted in 2013, I think she really came into her own commercially and artistically. With it's uniquely beautiful premise, Steven Universe will be a classic that will revolutionize the Western animation industry as a whole. She's been compared to Pendleton Ward but I think Rebecca Sugar has a far more happy, positive outlook on life.
>Why are there pictures of Pearl all over the place? Do you like her? Is she your favorite character?
>Is that a raincoat?
>Yes it is!
>In 2013, She made this.
*Begins playing Stronger than You*
>Steven Universe, her most accomplished work. I think it's most popular episode is Jailbreak. A episode so entertaining, that most people got into the show through it. But they should watch from the beginning. Because SU is not just about lesbians and singing, it's also about Steven's growth as a character and the realtionships between all the characters. Hey Paul!
>Steven goes on to get PeeDee fired from his job
>goes out of his way to talk shit to PeeDee's face at every opportunity
>doxxes PeeDee and spreads his personal information to a bunch of unstable yes-men on the internet who proceed to send PeeDee death threats and kill his cat
>when PeeDee asks Steven to stop, Steven screams about being oppressed by the male cishet rapeocracy and gets ten million dollars donated to his patreon
>star iris out
Kevin didn't really seem malicious. He just wanted to have fun, and he was complimenting Stevonnie anyway.
We'll probably see him again. The crew says they dont do one shot characters.
I'm already in a containment board...
Nice.Would be even better if you replaced Patrick and Allen with actual animators.
Have some Jasper fighting a Machoke for all the time you spent.
a weak gem... mentally? She's pretty fucking fit, and she obviously changed her mind about fusions when she tried with Lapis. She just has yet to realize what fusion is best used for.
I'm not sure who Huey represents in this analogy, and that might be a sign that I need to stop making Phantom Pain references on 4chan.
Regardless, my lust for revenge has been passed on. Good luck with that ya'll.
just promise me this won't actually happen when he comes back
>steven draws himself with greg and rose
>suddenly jasper runs out of the ocean, lapis not far behind
>jasper breaks into the house, says rose was fat, refuses into malachite, then gets dragged back into the ocean
YOU DON'T SEE ANY OTHER EXTRA BODY PARTS DO YOU
COME GETYA FUTA
You're a fucking idiot for thinking the same rules apply when fusion with a human happens.
>THIS HAND WRINGING
I don't sexualize any of the characters because it makes me feel guilty, but when it comes to Stevvonie my dick talks louder than my brain, she was made solely for sexual
If temple gem is galaxite then she should be black with colorful flecks. It's pretty much TTGL the gem
>I have no argument
>Y-You're just wrong because I want my fetish to be real
I think you just need to choke on a dick and shut up, desu senpai.
Check out my animation, guise. I started this at around the last days of /sug/ and have been working on it on and off since then.
It's my first attempt at animation, and is not meant to be more than a simple animatic. I may polish it up and add color/fluidity later on, depending on how I feel about it once I'm done.
>mfw I'm OP
>mfw this is the longest surviving thread I've ever made in my 7 years on this site
After the rebellion there was still a lot of bad blood. Unrest and the like, people dissatisfied with the way things were. The Diamonds were scrambling to get things back to some semblance of normalcy, seeing to the needs of the people and making sure the Gempire would live to see the end of the century. Most of us understood that. Most of us appreciated it.
The first time I saw a fusion was right in the street during the morning commute. Two gems were arguing with a third. They were protesters of some kind, I think. Ideological dick-hangers that sought to piggyback on the unrest and misplaced feelings that the Crystal Rebellion had stirred up in order to push their own inane agenda. They were a dime a dozen, and they were a nuisance. Stopping whatever Gems passed by to prattle on about their nonsense. Recently, though, they had started to become more aggressive -to the point that more often than not the local constables had to be called in.
This time was no different ...at first, anyway. The very moment the peace officers turned their attention away from the pair, they fused. Suddenly there was a twenty-foot-tall abomination rampaging through the crowds. I saw so many Gems -Gems I knew, Gems I worked with, Gems I had called friends- crushed in an instant. Innocent lives, ended by that beast. Again and again it happened, when every dissident realized that they had a weapon of mass destruction they could unleash at any moment.
And that's why I won't look at you, Garnet. Because your very presence reminds me of the terrified screams of those I've lost. Because what you're doing -what you are- is sick.
Really? Because it looks like Cartoon Network would be the only kids network to have gay people on their shows.
Okay well if you can PROVE that "things are different from humans" then I can take you seriously.
But until then I'm paying attention to ACTUAL CANON = FUSION GETS EXTRA BODY PARTS = FUTA FUTA FUTA FUTA DICK AND CUNT TOGETHER AT LAST
A) As Stevonnie said, Stevonnie is not your baby.
B) Garnet confirmed that fusions don't into relationships because they are already relationships.
Did you not listen to the lyrics of the whole entire song
>I think you just need to choke on a dick
That's the plan.
>Steven Universe debutted in 2013
Has it already been 2 years?
You can't prove that it's not different for humans. Checkmate, Atheists.
When you get to season 3 it really starts to get good, The uptight homeworld gems move next door! ha!
Maybe Garnet is open to relationships within relationships. Maybe she just said she wasn't having it because she was a fusion just to blow Jamie off. Let's be honest, she is out of his league.
Fusions dont kill gems! It's the components who're apart of the fusion's...ego and id are the ones who decide to kill... Oh god homeworld probably has mental background checks for this shit.
Reminder that Garnet is
Purge those who do not believe in Steven.
>YFW you will never be a physical embodiment of love
I wonder if Jasper has any fucked up superpowers like Rose did.
Maybe the Diamond Authority is literally the organization or branch that Yellow Diamond runs, the Crystal Gems are Rose's group and Blue and White have names for their factions too
Except white and blue diamonds aren't really common variations. Yellow is the most common color of diamond. White is a common variation of turquoise, and blue is a common variation of topaz. Why would they all be diamonds, except for a quartz?
They'd be named Diamond because they literally are diamonds there's nothing stupid about that.
Gem naming schemes are the most straightforward thing in existence.
the stupid thing about the theory is that there was literally nothing that suggest they were all diamonds or named diamond it was just a conclusion jumped to with nothing to back it up and it had to defend itself with made up bull shit about Rose changing her name
Maybe she just didn't have the opportunity.
Rose wouldn't have been able to command plants on the ship because there were no plants there for example.
Maybe Jasper can command... like, fuck, I don't know... tigers.
>the stupid thing about the theory is that there was literally nothing that suggest they were all diamonds or named diamond
Except for that they're "The Diamond Authority" and that their symbol is always diamonds.
> it was just a conclusion jumped to with nothing to back it up and it had to defend itself with made up bull shit about Rose changing her name
>Implying Rose was a leader of homeworld
Rose is a quartz. She was at most a general.
i mean using a geometric shape diamond doesn't really mean it has to be a diamond the gem stone, they are two different diamonds although it does seem to be a common practice to wear a diamond of your leader on uniforms
Peridot and Jasper have a yellow diamond and Pearl has a pink diamond on her space suit, but of course that pink diamond stands for Rose Quartz not someone named Pink Diamond
we've got to have the money
In the case that tumblr breaches human rights one again relating to SU can I trust you guys to form a le sekrit armie to counter the cancer with cancer? It makes me nervous that tumblr has so much pull on the creators
I could probably go for the embodiment of salt with the hiatus
Is this how Peridot see's garnet?
This is garnet.
if Rose isn't Pink Diamond then where is Pink Diamond? What happened to her and more importantly why isn't is shown on the wall in Serious Steven, Where we rather clearly seem to see all 4 leader gems, one of which is clearly Rose
That would only make it worse, anon.
Best move is to just ignore it
The only mention of the diamond authority in the show was by Ronaldo, and it was one of his crazy theories that had nothing to do with the Gems. And their symbol is not always diamonds, as in the pattern on the floor of the ship in Jailbreak had white, yellow, and blue in triangles.
The training ground that Pearl took Connie to had a pink-colored diamond shape along with the others, one that was broken. One of the four pillars was destroyed on the battlefield. Pearl told Connie that some of the first battles of the rebellion were fought there, which means that it existed prior to the rebellion, when Rose was still with the Homeworld.
This. We see White, Yellow, and Blue in the mural. The only pink is Rose herself.
>if Rose isn't Pink Diamond then where is Pink Diamond?
Fucking dead probably.
You can't betray Homeworld without breaking a few eggs and skulls.
> more importantly why isn't is shown on the wall in Serious Steven
Possibly cause the wall was depicting specific events and Pink Diamond's death preceded them.
>"I don't appreciate you bringing lesbian rocks back to mother base, Boss." ~ Kaz "ethnic killer" Miller
Fuck off Tumblr pick a fight with your own emotionally unstable teenage girls.
So guys, Jasper was in charge of Peridot on their mission together
Jasper is taller than Peridot
Garnet is the leader of the Crystal Gems and before her it was Rose
Garnet is taller than Pearl and Amethyst but not Rose.
Yellow Diamond appeared to be towering over everyone in the shot we saw of her.
Is Yellow Diamond secretly the Tallest?
>Some of those crazy sjw tumblr people actually got arrested.
Not afraid at all. They're just a bunch of hypersensitive teenagers who forget that the rest of the world exists sometimes.
Treat them like you would 'edgy' kids in real life: ignore and let the be burned by reality later in life.

SAUCE PLS I have a fucking job i can't keep up with tumblr nonsense
Oh, are we doing this again? Goody!
>Are diamonds actually diamonds
Well, let's see, it's referred to as the Diamond Authority by Ronaldo (and he's turned out right before).
Prior to the war they used a 4 diamond symbol, afterwards they switched to upside-down triangles (which resembles many diamond cuts when viewed from the side).
Blue, Pink, White and Yellow are all colors diamonds come in, and those in specific have secondary meanings/importance (aside from pink, which is just noted as valuable on the wiki page for it).
All Gems we've seen demonstrating some sort of uniform have had a diamond shape of one of those colors on their clothes, even the Homeworld Gems that still use the triangle symbol (meaning the fact that it's a diamond is the important part, not the fact that it has 4 points).
And, most importantly, we have confirmation of the existance of at least Yellow Diamond.
So yeah, it seems very likely that Gems are ruled by Diamonds. Whether or not they are literal diamonds or if it's just a title is currently unclear.
>Is Rose a Diamond?
That's the big question this season honestly. And there's two possibilities that make sense
>She was Pink Diamond (either in name or literally) prior to the war, became Rose Quartz (either ditching the title or taking a false name) when she rebelled to go against Homeworld's system.
>OR Rose was a general under Pink Diamond that killed her when the war began.
The biggest thing, to me at least, concerning it all is that Rose, despite people calling her a Quartz, is vastly different than all other Quartz we've seen thus far (amethyst, Jasper and the flashback soldier who was likely also a quartz based on how similar she was to Jasper). Sure, she's big and has a lot of hair, but that hair is very vibrant rather than a pale color, she rebelled and showed way better abilities so far than the others.
The statues are bullshit.
I like your taste, anon.
There aren't many of us
or literally only Yellow Diamond is named Diamond and the Diamond Authority (assume it means anything) refers to the faction that she controls/works for her, like how the Crystal Gems are Rose's faction
You always should go for the simplest solution, not make up convoluted crap like Rose changing her name which literally nothing in the show has ever even hinted at.
Rocks without a gender can't love each other, they're just space foreigners that shat over our planet.
Gas the gems, Species war now!
So, in that book with the character bios they released a couple months ago, there was a page about fusion (or maybe Garnet/Ruby/Sapphire's desc.) that mentioned gems don't normally fuse with different gems. This implies homeworld's standard fusion protocol is to fuse only the same type of gem, the logic most likely being that gems in the same caste are more familiar and cooperative with one another.
In Sworn to the Sword, Pearl displays one of her memory-holograms of a battle where she "protects" Rose from a huge gem that appeared to be Jasper. Jasper herself claimed to hate fusion, but resorted to it after losing a fight. She also mentioned to have seen Rose in battle before. We already know that the giant weapons in the strawberry field were used by fusions. Peridot refers to Garnet as a war machine.
tl;dr Jasper was once part of a god-knows-how-many fusion made solely of other Jaspers, and the gem war on earth had thousands of such fusions as soldiers.
