[size11 Peridot was surprised - and overjoyed! - when Lapis actually came down and talked to her. Occasionally, Lapis would ignore her if Peridot would try to speak with her. Not all the time, but sometimes. Lapis even helped her with her snacks and movies!
Although, Peridot was stubborn and didn't want to admit her struggle. [b [#23E13F "I had it... But thanks."] ]
Lapis' question made Peridot tense. Even though she said it in a joking way, Peridot took it seriously, as she usually did. Jokes usually go over her head. [b [#23E13F "Um. I didn't exactly buy it,"] ] she began, putting on a sudden smug grin. The look on her face made it clear she was proud of herself. [b [#23E13F "I sort of... took it and ran."] ] The green gem shrugged her shoulders nonchalantly as she began heading towards the barn. It was a lot easier trying to walk with her hands less full.
She glanced back to see if Lapis were following her before speaking, [b [#23E13F "Steven told me about these things called 'snacks'."] ]She commented. [b [#23E13F "I thought we'd try it out. He said Amethyst has fun... [i eating]."] ] It was clear Peridot wasn't familiar with the topic of food, or eating in general. Being a new gem, she didn't know a lot of things. She didn't even know what movies and shows were until Steven told her.
[b [#23E13F "Then we could watch some previously recorded entertainment. That I also took."] ]
Peridot spoke with such confidence, not even asking Lapis if she'd like to hang out with her. Instead, she sorta just told her that's what they were doing. Watching a movie and "eating snacks". She was very forward with everything she says and does. Lapis could back out if she wanted, though. Peridot wouldn't [i force] her to do things with her, of course. She just didn't know how to ask first. [b [#23E13F "Sounds fun, right?"]]

Pearl expected Amethyst to instantly go all grabby-hands at the cake she made, but it still didn't help the anxiety building up in her. She didn't want this to just be another snack - she wanted it to be a celebration with just her and Amethyst. This would be a perfect time to try to do some bonding. [#00EBD2 [b "H-Hold on just a second-"] ]
With a still nervous expression sprawled across the pale gem's face, she spoke, [#00EBD2 [b "Oh, well, yes. It[i is] a cake for you. I felt like we should celebrate your latest victories!"] ]
Her nervous expression was replaced with an affectionate one - calm but gleeful at the same time. [#00EBD2 [b "You have grown so much, Amethyst. And with the Rubies in space and Jasper bubbled, I think it's high time for a break, don't you agree?"] ] She spoke in a delighted tone, pushing the cake into her direction.
[#00EBD2 [b "I'd prefer if you take a moment to look at it before... um... Eating it. I spent all day making it, after all. And that's not even counting the millions of cooking shows I had to watch!"] ]
Then she paused, tapping her chin. [#00EBD2 [b "Well, maybe not thousands. But you get the point."] ]
At least Amethyst seemed happy thus far. And honestly, that's all Pearl really wanted out of this. To make her happy. She made numerous mistakes - even ones that made Amethyst feel horrible about herself. She was determined.

Ruby's hand raised to rub the back of her neck nervously. Sapphire's word were comforting, but she still couldn't help but feel guilty for splitting them apart. Sometimes fusion gets too much into her head and makes her feel so dependent on being Garnet - and she thought Sapphire felt the same. But she seems to forget how accepting and calm Sapphire is sometimes. And she also forgets how Sapphire can sometimes hear her thoughts when they're fused. She understood why Ruby wanted to be fused, but Ruby still felt the need to explain herself face to face.
[b [#CA0000 I-I just... Miss seeing you sometimes. It's stupid, I know... You just... I just..."] ] Her words got scrambled. Rubies were notorious for being emotional, and Ruby almost sounded as if she were on the verge of crying. However, she reminded herself how Sapphire loved her no matter what. Hell, she even said she understood and that she doesn't need to get flustered. And this whole thing wasn't even a big deal. The soldier took a very deeeep breath, letting it out in a sigh as she regained composure. Then, she smiled a little bit.
The red gem finally stood up, holding her hand out to help Sapphire up off the ground. [b [#CA0000 "Forgive me. I-I do tend to get carried away, don't I?"] ] She chuckled.

[center [size11 When Peridot first arrived on earth, she thought her mission would be easy. Just go in and check on the Cluster's progress. The Cluster was a large Gem, made of tiny gem shards combined into each other. Once it emerges, the Earth would be destroyed - just as Homeworld wanted. However, the Crystal Gems stepped in, of course, and foiled all of her plans.
The first time she met Lapis was when Jasper had imprisoned her. At first, Peridot didn't think about it. Lapis wasn't helping Homeworld, so she deserved to be punished in this way. But she still couldn't help but feel guilty eventually for not helping her out, even though she feared Jasper would hurt her if she did so. And Lapis still blamed her to this day, which was understandable. Peridot, however, still seemed naive to Lapis' feelings, always wondering why she seemed to dislike her so much.
She was determined to change that, though.
Lapis was slowly warming up to her after a while; she and Peridot watched Camp Pining Hearts together, made art together, and just enjoyed talking to each other on occasion. Peridot decided to plan a special day for them, wanting to get closer to her. Being around her made her feel ... strange. She'd get nervous and sweaty when speaking to her, but also get this strange feeling in her stomach. Humans called it having a 'crush' on someone. What a dumb word. What exactly was she [i crushing]?
Peridot went to a store Steven suggested - a movie store. She bought several DVDs , and returned home. She didn't realize they were horror movies, however. The cover art looked neat, so she got them anyway. Then she also [s stole] bought some snacks. Gems didn't have to eat and she didn't even know if Lapis liked eating, but she did her research and it seemed like a... FRIEND thing to do.
Once she got the movies and snacks, she headed to the Barn again, using the warps at the Crystal Temple.
[b [#23E13F "LAPIS !!"] ] The tiny green gem exclaimed from outside of it. She was almost struggling to hold all the movies and snacks. [b [#23E13F "Hey Lapis !! Are you in there??"] ]

Pearl was always a little hard on Amethyst; whether it was getting on her for leaving trash around the house, commenting on her bad attitude, or dozens of other things. Lately, however, Amethyst proved herself to be improving very well. Gems couldn't exactly 'grow up', but Amethyst was definitely maturing in a way. And Pearl wanted to celebrate her and her latest victories. She had to admit she was impressed with how determined she was to defeat Jasper, and how she was able to fuse with Steven to make Smoky Quartz.
So, Pearl had spend all day trying to make a cake. That's what people make to celebrate, right? Or was that only for birthdays... Pearl didn't really know, but she was trying. And she knew Amethyst loved food. She had spent all day watching cooking shows on Steven's television, thankful he was out with Connie and Amethyst right now.
Or at least she [i thought] Amethyst was out with them.
With her brows knitted together with concentration, she was trying to frost the cake. The three layers of Chocolate cake were stacked high, covered in a light coat of vanilla frosting. But Pearl had to go the extra mile and use some purple frosting to add cute little details. Little purple flowers were piped in in a circle around the cake. Then she added a nice 'GOOD JOB AMETHYST' in the middle.
Standing back and admiring her work, she tapped her chin. Being the perfectionist she is, she tried to look for any little mistakes. Even though Amethyst would probably just eat the cake in one bite anyway...
As she turned around, she noticed the shorter purple gem was right there, and she squawked. [b [#00EBD2 "Amethyst !! Wh-What are you doing here so soon?"] ] Pearl was bad at hiding things, and an even worse liar. She put on this wide, awkward grin.
[left [pic http://imgur.com/WEX2m3z.png] ]
Garnet was rarely split apart. Ruby and Sapphire were inseparable, almost to the point where they refuse to unfuse in any sort of situation, unless dire. It's been that way ever since they met, over five thousand years ago. Some gems didn't even know they were two different gems, since they're always seen as [i one] whole being.
However, Ruby had this [i craving]. Ever since they unfused to play baseball with the Homeworld Rubies, she missed having that physical contact. She missed flirting and just [i seeing] Sapphire, and not within Garnet's mind. In person.
Of course, being fused is even more physical, considering you're combining your whole being with another. But she missed [i holding] Sapphire. It was a strange feeling; not one she really had before, nor thought about until now. They were always Garnet, [i always]. And she even felt embarrassed to admit anything to Sapphire, not wanting to ruin anything between them.
Even when trying to hide how she felt, she should know by now that if you're mind isn't stable, your fusion won't be stable. Steven, Amethyst, and Pearl were out of the Crystal Temple right now, which was good, considering their fusion began splitting apart due to Ruby not being able to keep it together.
Once split, the poor Ruby began spewing apologies quickly.
[#CA0000 [b "O-Oh, shoot. I'm so sorry. S-Sorry. I-I um, I..."] ] She couldn't even make out words right now, face flushed with a darker shade of red out of embarrassment.

[center [font consolas [b [#217ad4 Lapis Lazuli's Past.]]]]
[center [font consolas Before Steven healed her with his spit, she had grayish-blue skin and reflective eyes without pupils like the mirror she was trapped in for to long. After her gemstone had been healed by Steven's spit, her color palette changed its tone. The color of her skin changed to a deep sky blue, her dress and hair became lighter, and she was found to have navy blue eyes. She has a slim figure, cyan skin, and blue chin-length hair, arranged in almost the same as Pearl, although her bangs are slightly longer, with a fringe that covers her entire forehead. She wears a flowing, blue skirt, which is knee-length with a downward-facing navy triangle. She also wears a backless, blue halter crop top with an upward-facing navy triangle that ties into a blue sash ribbon on the back of her shoulders. She has a blue lapis lazuli gemstone embedded in her back, in the form of a water droplet, from which she is able to summon and remove wings created out of water at will.]]
[center [font consolas Lapis Lazuli is a Lapis lazuli-type Gem created on the Gem Homeworld thousands of years ago. During its colonization era, Lapis visited the Earth, but was caught in the midst of the Rebellion. While trying to escape the planet, she was poofed by a Bismuth Gem, but was eventually recovered by a Homeworld Gem. However, to Lapis' dismay, the Gem who discovered her believed she was a Crystal Gem and trapped her in a magical mirror in order to find out the secrets of the rebel group, but she was not able to answer. Eventually, the Homeworld Gems lost hope and fled the Earth, leaving behind Lapis at the Galaxy Warp. While the Gems fled in panic, the mirror was trampled over, damaging Lapis' gemstone. She was later discovered by Pearl at the same spot and kept in her possession.]]
[center [font consolas [b [#217ad4 "Do you even wonder who I used to be?!"]] After the mirror is handed over to Steven by Pearl so he can learn about Gem culture. When Pearl is not able to activate it, she assumes that it is broken. However, when away from Pearl, Lapis Lazuli reveals herself to Steven by talking to him through the mirror's recordings. Lapis is then able to communicate with Steven, persuading him to free her. Steven releases her physical form and individual consciousness by removing the gemstone from the back, shattering the mirror. When discovered by the Crystal Gems, she asks Steven to return "home" with her, to which he is not able to respond. Disappointed by his apparent rejection, she escapes into the ocean before she can be recaptured.]]
[center [font consolas Lapis draws all the world's oceans into a spire in an attempt to reach all the way to Homeworld. She fights the Crystal Gems from atop the spire by creating Water Clones to attack them. However, Steven manages to persuade her to talk and uses his saliva to heal her cracked gem. Thanking Steven, she forms wings of water and flies off into space, to return to Homeworld.]]
[center [font consolas Lapis helps the Crystal Gems by sending Steven a message about the upcoming invasion. She sends a video message via the Wailing Stone warning Steven that Peridot is coming to Earth with another Gem. Lapis urges Steven and the Crystal Gems not to put up a fight, as Gem technology has advanced since she has last been to the Homeworld, and a fight will only lead to devastation.]]
[center [font consolas Lapis tries to explain herself to Jasper, she is brought to Earth by Peridot and Jasper aboard the Gem Warship against her will. She is sent to Earth with Peridot as an informant, and it is seen that she has omitted facts from the crew for Steven's sake. Once Jasper takes out the Gem Destabilizer, Lapis stays frozen in place as Jasper poofs Garnet, beats Pearl and Amethyst and knocks out Steven.]]
[center [font consolas Lapis is imprisoned in a ship jail cell after Jasper believes Lapis has withheld information from her. When Steven tries to free her, she believes it is for the best that they do not try to escape and remains in her cell. After the ship is destroyed, she attempts to flee but is caught by Jasper who asks Lapis to fuse with her, saying that the Crystal Gems are traitors and used her. After considering the offer, she seemingly agrees, however after fusing, she reveals that she fused with Jasper into Malachite so she could trap both of them at the bottom of the sea.]]
[center [font consolas Garnet mentions that she has been searching the ocean floor for Lapis and Jasper, but thus far has not found any trace of them. Lapis is shown to be able to communicate with Steven through his dreams. Lapis states that she does not want Steven and the other Crystal Gems to find her because she is committed wholeheartedly to staying fused as Malachite in order to prevent Jasper from escaping or gaining control of Malachite and from hurting Steven.]]
[center [font consolas In the civilization of Watermelon Stevens on Mask Island attempt to sacrifice one of their number to Malachite in an effort to stop the earthquakes that troubled the island. Thanks to Steven's vision of the event, the Crystal Gems track her down, and fuse into Alexandrite to fight her. Malachite is defeated and forcibly defused by the Gems, with aid of the Watermelon Stevens. During the final moments of the fight, a Cluster-related earthquake took place, but the unconscious Lapis is caught by Amethyst. Lapis is carried by Garnet, unconscious, arriving from Mask Island.]]
[center [font consolas She finally awakens and decides to fly back to Homeworld. However, she later returns to the barn after realizing she would not be able to go back to Homeworld for her actions towards Jasper. Steven finds her on top of the silo and decides to help her find a home somewhere on Earth. Together they visit the countryside, Empire City, and Jersey. While enjoying their flight, Lapis eventually sights the Galaxy Warp, awakening tragic memories in her, causing her to nearly drop Steven before she comes to her senses. She uses her memory projecting abilities to show Steven the story of how she got stuck on Earth. That being that she was only meant to visit for a short time, but she got caught in the middle of war, and is poofed by a Bismuth. After finishing her story, she insists they leave the area right away. While flying back to the barn, Lapis says that she thought things had changed, but she was wrong. In response, Steven tells her that, on Earth, things change all the time and that it is not the same world that trapped her. Landing back at the barn, Steven continues, saying that this time she has the choice to stay on the planet or not and Lapis says she wants to stay so she can see more. After making her decision, Peridot suddenly joins their conversation, to Lapis' surprise and dismay. Peridot explains that she is now living on Earth and in the barn, but Lapis responds in denial, claiming that it is her new home, not Peridot's.]]
[center [font consolas Steven and Peridot try to make a compromise with Lapis so Peridot and Lapis can both live together on the barn. However, Lapis turns down every compromise and reveals that she is not listening because she does not like Peridot. Lapis says that Peridot is the reason why she is back on Earth in the first place. Lapis flies on top of the nearby silo and relaxes but is woken up by a screaming Peridot yelling her name. Lapis becomes irritated but only flies down when she hears Steven calling her name. Lapis reads the apology letter written by Peridot outloud and is not thankful of the compliments she receives from her. Later, Lapis is called back down where Steven and Peridot show her the hole from the drill now filled with water with the intention of giving Lapis her own pool. Lapis explains that she is taking a break from water because she has been in the ocean for such a long time and described it as being her "tomb", though Lapis does thank them for their generosity.]]
[center [font consolas Finally, Peridot gives Lapis her tape recorder and she shows her how it works. Lapis turns it on and states that she does not want Peridot's "garbage" and crushes it with her hand and drops it on ground. Peridot becomes frustrated and asks Lapis what she wants to make them be on good terms. Lapis becomes frustrated as well and yells to Peridot that she wants her to leave. Peridot complies and walks away which makes Steven disappointed. Lapis asks Steven why he trusts Peridot and Steven explains that she has truly changed from before. Peridot comes running back and passes the two, into the barn. The Homeworld tracking vessel, the Roaming Eye, follows Peridot, Lapis and Steven run into the barn. Soon, they run back out, and Lapis sees how scared Peridot is. Lapis forms a water hand and makes the Roaming Eye crash into the ground and asks if Peridot is okay, blushing when Peridot responds with a big smile.]]
[center [font consolas When the Crystal Gems are in the barn, Lapis listens to Peridot when she explains why the Ruby soldiers are supposedly after her. When the decision is made to play baseball with the Rubies, Lapis appears nonchalant about it; she laughs to herself and says [b [#217ad4 "this plan sucks"]] but decides to play. The Crystal Gems, except Peridot, all play and disguise themselves as humans. Lapis's human name is Bob, a reference to way earlier when Lapis tells Steven her name is Lapis, not Bob. Throughout the game, Lapis remains unenthusiastic. When a ball flies over her head, she raises her arm after it is well behind her. When Lapis is up at bat, she does not swing. Instead, she holds out her bat, and the ball lightly bounces off of it. Lapis then walks to first base. At the very end of the game, Lapis is on second base, and she walks to home plate when Sapphire gets a home-run. Lapis smiles and gives Ruby a high five.]]
[center [font consolas Steven takes Lapis to a dock to go on a boating trip. Lapis formally meets Greg for the first time, and after Steven convinces her, Lapis agrees to the trip. Throughout the trip, Lapis seems to still be bothered by the fact that that she was underwater as Malachite for so long. When Greg is fishing, Lapis uses her hydrokinesis to take out a large sphere of the ocean water, but Greg says he'd rather fish normally, and teaches Lapis how to fish. Suddenly, something strong pulls on the string and Lapis, reels her in but before the creature could surface the pole snaps. After the ship's engine breaks from an unknown source, Lapis claims that the trip going bad is her fault and not Steven's. Lapis reveals that she misses Jasper after being fused with her for all that time, and that she feels like a bad person.]]
[center [font consolas Suddenly, Jasper climbs the boat's anchor chain and gets onto the ship's deck, surprising Lapis. When Jasper throws Steven out of the way, Lapis runs to his aid, but Jasper pulls her back and starts begging to fuse with her again. Lapis asks why she would want to do that, and tells Jasper that she hated her and used fusion to take her anger out on her. Lapis doesn't listen to Jasper's claims of changing and rejects the offer to fuse once more. Jasper then charges at Steven with the plan to attack and shatter him because she believes that he is the reason Lapis doesn't want to fuse. In reaction to this, Lapis manifests a water fist that sends Jasper flying high in the air and far, far away into the ocean, as well as punches a hole in the ship thus sinking it. She flies off of the boat carrying Greg and Steven.]]
[center [font consolas Lapis has acclimated to living at the barn. Although she is still dour to an extent, she has helped renovate the barn and become comfortable living with Peridot, watching Camp Pining Hearts together, and creating pieces of art they call "meepmorps", hers being a baseball bat from when she played baseball, a leaf Steven gave her, and a TV on a stand with two mirrors sticking out of it, looping a scene from Camp Pining Hearts. Lapis helps the others out after imprisoning the 5 Rubies from the baseball game, while Steven questions them one by one. She and Peridot stay behind on Earth while the others travel to the moon's Diamond base.]]

[center [font consolas [b [#9a1bda Amethyst's Past]]]]
[center [font consolas Amethyst is shorter than most of the characters, rivaling Steven's height , with an almost stout build. Amethyst's skin is a bright lilac, and her hair is a pale lavender color. She has plump lips, a small, upturned nose, and a large bang which obscures her left eye. She also has dark indigo eyes. Her gemstone is located on her chest.]]
[center [font consolas Amethyst wore a mauve, oversized, off-shoulder tank top with a black bra underneath. She wore black leggings with star-shaped cutouts on the knees. There was also a tear above the left star. But her appearance changes quite often. Like Amethyst's tank top and leggings are reversed. Instead of cut-outs on her leggings, she now has two black stars. On the lower part of her tank top, there are now two small slits on either side. She fixes her shoulder strap, keeping it on her shoulder rather than off a feature Pearl was happy to see changed. Amethyst's color palette remains the same but has been swapped once more: her tank top is now off-white with a jagged hem, and she now has black leggings to her first look with dark mauve stars on them. Her ankle boots are the same dark mauve hue.]]
[center [font consolas Amethyst is fun-loving and carefree. Loud and full of laughter, she is easily amused and very impulsive. Amethyst is often used as comic relief. She is bad-mannered, rude, untidy, but still good-hearted and protective. Her overprotectiveness of her junk marks her as somewhat of a hoarder. These tendencies surface where she is unwilling to let Greg throw anything away in his storage unit.
[center [font consolas Amethyst tends to indulge Steven more than the other Gems and partakes in human activities with him, generally being carefree to a fault while showing concern for his well-being in times of more severe danger. Although she does not have to, Amethyst enjoys eating and sleeping and is frequently seen doing so.]]
[center [font consolas Amethyst loves a good fight, something that manifests itself in her wrestling persona, the "Purple Puma", where she willingly masquerades as a hated wrestler purely for the fun of it and to relieve stress from Pearl and Garnet's constant orders. She often loves watching fights as well and will loudly vocalize and cheer when she sees a conflict in progress, egging the competitors on, including the feuds between Pearl and Greg and between Pearl and Peridot.]]
[center [font consolas Amethyst is very observant of other people's feelings. She tries to reassure Steven when he was worried about her as she fell apart, knows why Pearl kept fixing the Communication Hub, and that Garnet will not forgive Pearl unless the two directly talk it out.]]
[center [font consolas Because of her origins in Kindergarten and its dark legacy, Amethyst harbors a tremendous amount of self-loathing, which is also fueled by her perception that she is inadequate when compared to Garnet or Pearl. This leaves her feeling out of place among the Crystal Gems, thinking that she does not belong with Gems of their caliber when she was created by the very thing they sought to destroy. She thought that when Steven learned of her past, he would think less of her. She worries about Steven's and Garnet's approval, and Amethyst demonstrates that she has difficulty thinking for herself, regenerating multiple times in the episode with new forms that were all rushed or based on what she thinks Garnet and Steven will approve of.]]
[center [font consolas Amethyst has an admittedly low opinion of herself and a strong self loathing that she usually keeps buried under her boisterousness. She gets into a vicious fight with Pearl over the belief that she sees Amethyst as a parasite. She sings due to feeling inferior to Sardonyx and defends Pearl for deceiving Garnet to fuse with her due to both being weaker than her. Focusing on her sense of inferiority as Jasper easily defeats and poofs her and she sees that Steven surpasses her. It was only after a fight with Steven that she begins to feel better, though she shows an obsession in finding and beating Jasper that leads her to recklessly seek to challenge the other gem alone. Amethyst come to terms with herself due to Steven's encouragement, comfort, and stating that they're the same, leading them to fuse into Smoky Quartz. After the battle Amethyst seemingly returns to her usual self, not wanting to do anything for a month.]]

[center [font consolas Sapphire has blue skin and pale blue, wavy hair with bangs that cover the top half of her face. She is slightly taller than Ruby. Her prominent lips and facial structure resemble Garnet's. When her bangs are moved to the side, they reveal a large eye with a dodger blue iris and visible pupil in the center of her face. She, along with Jasper, are the only Gems who lack a nose. However, she is the only Gem not to have anything replacing a nose. Sapphire wears a floor-length gown with white, rounded, puffy sleeves, a navy top, and a blue skirt. Her dress has a blue pinafore over the top. The skirt has several frilly layers in several shades of blue which resemble an open geode. She also wears white elbow-length evening gloves. Sapphire has feet that are usually hidden by her dress. Her gemstone is in the palm of her right hand and has a triangular facet.]]
[center [font consolas Over 5,750 years ago, Sapphire lived on Homeworld, as an aristocratic Gem and part of Blue Diamond's court. She was part of the diplomatic team sent to stop Rose's Rebellion on Earth, along with 3 Rubies assigned to guard her. Sapphire saw a future where the rebels Rose Quartz and Pearl were indeed caught and stopped; however, seven Gems, including herself, were going to be poofed in the process.]]
[center [font consolas Just as she finished reporting her premonition to Blue Diamond, Rose Quartz and Pearl attack, as Sapphire predicted, and destroy the physical forms of six Gems, including two of her Ruby guards. However, before Sapphire was struck down, her remaining Ruby jumped forward and pushed her out of the way of Pearl's sword, accidentally fusing with her and forming Garnet for the first time. This first ever fusion of two different Gem types caused an uproar among the other Gems, during which Rose and Pearl escaped.]]
[center [font consolas Blue Diamond was not pleased, and threatened to shatter Ruby for fusing with a member of her court and changing Sapphire's prophecy. However, Sapphire grabbed Ruby by the hand and ran off the edge of the Cloud Arena, floating down to Earth below. Sapphire was "frozen" because her future vision was wrong for the first time due to Ruby's impulsive nature. They found shelter in a cave, where Sapphire revealed her eye to Ruby and the two talked about their feelings when they were Garnet.]]
[center [font consolas Ruby and Sapphire grew closer and eventually decided to fuse again. Garnet was found by Pearl and Rose shortly after forming. Upon being met with acceptance and not revulsion, she began to bombard Rose with questions about the events and circumstances that allowed her to become Garnet, as well as her own feelings about existing as a fusion. Rose told her to "never question this," and said that she was already the answer to all her questions—love. This would be the beginning of Sapphire's existence as part of Garnet for the next thousand years, fighting Homeworld with the Crystal Gems to protect Earth.]]
