    Summary

    One week ago, Steven was born ... and Rose died.

    Greg tries his best to care for the newborn Steven despite his grief but, honestly, he feels his pain is nothing compared to how the Gems are feeling in Rose's absence. Garnet has defused, Pearl has disappeared, and Amethyst ... well, nobody seems to even want to SAY what Amethyst is doing ...

    Can they learn to carry on without Rose ... or will they let their loss consume them?

    A sequel to Bad Girl Brushstrokes and Why Don't You Hate Me? In the canon-divergent continuity of "I Want to Understand". Is contradicted in canon by Mr. Greg.

    Summary

    In one universe, Rose wanted to tell Greg everything, but Greg told her she didn’t have to tell him anything. That was supposed to be reassuring to Rose, but what Rose needed most someone to talk to, and so she took her secrets to her grave, causing the Crystal Gems all sorts of grief and despair.

    This is a look into the universe where Rose did get to tell Greg everything, and the results of that action.

    Summary

    “Those are orders, Pearl!”

    Pearl freezes on her knees for a moment, taken aback, eyes wide. It’s simple, and in some ways, it’s even a return to normalcy after the madness of the past thousand years or so—and especially after the tragedy of the past few days. She supposes that that should be its own kind of relief. But it’s not. And instead, there’s a sinking feeling in her Gem that’s like disappointment, that she would call betrayal had it come from anyone else.

    (Rose slips up. Pearl can't talk about it.)

    Summary

    She wishes she could say something. She wishes she could run to Garnet and bawl her eyes out and be listened to. She wishes she could find Bismuth's gem buried under a mountain of rubble, set her free and scream her heart out. She wishes she could confess, admit, speak her mind just once as these terrible thoughts plague her.
    But it's a private emotion, and no excess of guilt will bleed this truth away.

    (Spoilers for A Single Pale Rose.)
