    Summary

    (Had Peridot ever been happy? Or had Lapis sucked all of her joy into the vortex of her own terror?)

    An earlier iteration of her would let this question fester in her mind, and she’s tempted to do that now. But something in her tells her that if she’s serious about changing—about building a new life for herself as a Crystal Gem—then the relationship she has with Peridot has to matter more than the fear of what she might answer. She has to make it matter more. So she listens to the waves, inhales and then releases the breath, then turns to Peridot.

    “Were you…happy?”

     

    After re-forming, Lapis and Peridot debrief.

    Summary

    You don’t talk about it. No one needs to know if you’re doing it. No one needs to know what kind of gem you’re doing it with. No one needs to know what kind of monstrosity you think you make.

    You don’t do it in public. You don’t walk around the streets, fused like you belong there.

    Jade and Jade had already made that mistake once.

    Summary

    “They didn’t shatter us during the war,” Skinny continued, “because they needed soldiers. And… we weren’t shattered after the war because Blue Diamond wanted to preserve Pink Diamonds memory or whatever…But Pink Diamond is alive. She was never shattered. Or she was shattered? And now she isn’t?”
    Carnelian shrugged. “She is currently alive.” Somehow.
    “So there’s no memory left to preserve anymore.”

    Summary

    “Welcome back.”

    The words were unexpected, snapping Pearl out of the closest thing to a good mood Homeworld had to offer. She turned to her normally-quiet blue counterpart, wondering if she heard her correctly.

    “Excuse me?”

    “I said, welcome back,” Blue Pearl repeated, “Everything exactly how you left it?”

    Blue Pearl has some choice words upon finally meeting the infamous “Renegade” Pearl.
