    Summary

    "Blue!" Rose snapped, but the screen had already disappeared. The news of White's current thoughts jangled like a bad chord in her brain. Destroying the Earth-- all that life, just because some gems were discovering that they could change, too, that they could grow-- "Prove it," Rose echoed, so angry for a moment that she felt like her gem was glowing white-hot. It took another moment for her anger to cool back to worry and then to fear. "How are we supposed to prove it? We can't crush the Crystal Gems! We are the Crystal Gems. And if Homeworld wins more battles against us--"

    She didn't have to say.

    *

    (Or: Rose learns about the possibility of Earth's destruction before it happens. When she fakes her own shattering, it's not Pink Diamond who dies.

    Too bad she didn't consider the cost of making Rose Quartz a martyr.)

    Summary

    A post office materialized out of the gloom, and Connie made a beeline toward it, pushing in the door with a little ding. She frowned when the door didn't open all the way. "Hello?" she called, trying to squeeze into the crack between the door and the frame. "Is this place closed?" She shrugged off her backpack and squirmed through, losing her balance a little as she overshot.

    Oh.

    For a long moment she processed only flashes: long dripping stingers, a poster on package requirements, movement against the walls, glassy eyes staring in her direction with a gaping mouth below them--

    A face with a swollen cheek, and a body attached to it, and a mangled hand flopping over the side of the desk. Connie choked back a gasp and stumbled into the door, making the bell jingle damningly behind her-- and the hundreds of little stinger-creatures in the room shifted and turned in her direction, humming low and ominous in the tiny room.

    Summary

    Rose doesn't bother him. At least, not in the way she used to. He has undeniable proof that she's gone, that he's not some fleshy carrier of her gemstone. It's the stone itself, actually- the fact that, if she were to exist, it would no longer be in him, and he just... he can't.

     

    As if on cue, Rose's room opens, spilling warm pink light into the house.
