Are the Rebel gems still Slaves? Steven Universe Theory


hi guys it’s adorably nerdy and Stevens
Diamond Day’s promo got me thinking do the gems really get to choose who they
are do they have free will or are they slaves to a higher design what I mean by
that is do the gems that rebel break not only their original role in homeworld
but the tropes and characteristic that the other gems of their class fall into
let’s start this discussion with my favorite gems the pearls the first
thought I have about the pearls is that they are the most flexible gem class
besides the diamonds themselves but I believe this is intentionally designed
as they are the shadows of the diamonds perfect servants made to fit any role
that their master requires of them but the overarching traits of the pearls
seem to be that they are naturally talented artists fiercely loyal and have
an overwhelming desire to please their master now let’s look at the terrifying
renegade pearl we all know and love our Pearl is portrayed throughout the show
is the exact opposite of a homeworld pearl a runaway know master a fighter
driven by our own Drive not the will of others however we know that’s not true
pearls master was gross horse aka pink diamond she learned to fight
because pink wanted to stop the other diamonds from colonizing the planet she
did this for pink not herself she did it to serve her diamond better
she kept Pink’s gem and Steven not for herself for she missed pink terribly but
because pink wanted to stay there and be human she was a perfect servant doing
everything that her master needed of her honestly there could not have been a
more perfect pearl by homeworlds own standards she’s free and named however
to this day she is still pink servant now let’s look at another of the crystal
gems amethyst see if it applies to her as well of all the crystal gems amethyst
should be the most individual because she was never exposed directly to home
world’s culture besides the free crystal gems living her life entirely on earth
but she’s not fat at all homeworld amethyst in general seem to
have tropes they fall into as well first they are playful especially with other
court soldiers they give off a group mentality with the other amethyst the
fana fist and they are impulsive jumping in before they think like the Train blue
diamond and Holly blue agate for the crystal gems now if we look at our
amethyst I would say she safely falls into all of these categories our
amethyst is the playful big sister to Stephen always messing around goofing
off she instantly has a connection with the other amethyst having a lost family
sort of feel in her first interaction with them and we know if she is
impulsive she tried to fight Jasper by herself rather than waiting for Steve at
her backup she’s a court soldier even though she’s a little small
she is still a stereotypical court soldier by what we have seen of other
homeworld amethyst now let’s move on to our most powerful gem pink diamond and
her alter ego throws quartz the persona of rose quartz was made to be an equal
to the other gems around her however she was not truly their equal not to any of
them despite her original intent she instantly became the leader of the rebel
gems idolized to the point of becoming a fable among them much like the diamond
authority is on homeworld the rebel gem is almost instantly trusted her and
followed her wishes the same way gems of another diamonds court would her will
was executed as all other diamonds wills are by the gem set serve under her pink
despite being in my opinion an off-color and being a disguise did all the things
in normal diamond would lead an army have a pearl loss of the gems around
shape the world to her wishes Pete just like the other crystal gems doesn’t
appear to have any true control over her role as a person or how she is perceived
by a group the only gems that seem to have any individuality from their
inherent roles are fusions like garnets sugilite smoky quartz for their album
ations of the gems that fuse them together off colors like pink diamond
Paris as in their Olga like twins seem to have some but in a more diminished
way than the fusion counterparts for they’re still gems of their class
just with abnormalities some physical like sighs and others mental like seeing
into the past but besides these few exceptions the gem tropes or main sadly
from everything I’ve seen in the show of pearls of pearl rubies or Ruby a
diamonds a diamond their free will is a lie they behave more like software just
on different platforms with different set dressing and individuality only
comes when their platform is either corrupted by birth or another software
is introduced into their system as yellow diamond would say the Sapphire
has a use she can tell you what it’s for and agate terrifies elapsed ere of forms
but hey what do you think do they have individuality can they
escape their gym class tropes can a pearl do what a diamond does or do you
think a pearl is a pearl in the end of the day no matter what you’re thinking
tell me in the comments down below I would love to hear out their opinions on
this anyway until next time keep an ear to y’all just to make you smile and you need me to hold you lose
