Some people were mad because they thought the sort of "domestic" depictions of Lapis and Peridot were making fun of gay couples. Somehow.

Remember when Peridot landed on top of Amethyst in too far that one time? So it was clearly an indication they're destined to be together and Lauren Zuke joining the show is obviously the reason they're not because she likes having Lapis and Peridot hang out and be domestic and it's totally queerbaiting the fans who know Peridot and Amethyst are the true gay.

Perithyst is a poo poo tier ship, Lapidot is the OTP, as only Peridot's boundless energy and desire to be friends + large amounts of old tv shows and anime can guide Lapis Lazuli out of her shell.

Doesn't have to be romantic. Not much difference anyway.

EDIT: like, the only thing I would miss would be like a one off scene, where lapis would perhaps kiss peri on the forehead, which is as far as any respectable shipper should go.

He gazed up at the enormous face. Years it had taken him to learn what kind of smile was hidden beneath the pink hair. O cruel, needless misunderstanding! O stubborn, self-willed exile from the loving breast! Two gin-scented tears trickled down the sides of his nose. It was all right. He loved anime

I like this show and don't give a flying gently caress about shipping. I think everyone should fuse with everyone so we get more kicking rad music from Aivi and Surasshu.

Speaking of which, know your fusion has some awesome tunes. I loved the remixes of the Opal and Sardonyx themes.

Honestly, just take my thoughts on lapidot, and replace Lapis with Jasper, and Peridot with Ruby Squad, and you have my opinions on Jasper ships. Except it would definitely be platonic there.

Counterpoint: what you said implies at least platonic shipping everyone with everyone else.

Face it, Fusion means shipping. Give in to the darkness.

I respectfully disagree. Pearl hates the gently caress out of some Jasper. She doesn't even Spades Jasper.

don't need to write mine down:

Lapidot
Garnet
Pearl X some gem in the future in a casual relationship with them as equals (I want birdmom to find someone)
jasper X friendship with ruby squad

This is last second, but Thinking about it it would really be cool if Sadie hung out with jamie, if only to make lars shape up and not EVER be a buttface again.

most of that Chart is a filthy pile of shifuck. the OTP are in line with what I think though, but only Amythyst x Pearl in a universe where the fusions are the children of their constituent gems, because them seeing off Opal on her first day of highschool sounds ADORABLE

Do not ship an abusive relationship. I will skull-gently caress you.

I am an extremely moral shipper

I understand your desire to ship the big buff cheeto puff, but you know how I jested about pearl not wanting any of jasper? I'm pretty sure that is for real WRT Lapis. I'm pretty sure Peridot would forget her stature and leap to protect lapis from jasper if she appear before her. all lapis ships must deal with peridot before they can reach the goal and reel it in!

More meta stuff: Someone pointed out on another site that apparently Garnet's line at the beginning of the show saying she couldn't ask Amethyst and Steven what they were hiding was a reference to some dated interview where Rebecca Sugar pointed out jokingly that Garnet never asks questions (not intentionally).


e: Jesus I missed nearly a whole page typing this. Are we doing shipping now? God almighty, what happened here?

I think if jasp makes an effort to be changed and not be a creepy and depressed gem after having been cured maybe that'd reflect nicely as a way to improve after having made really bad choices for a long time. Like she'd have to live on a shack on watermelon island and learn how to help others. I'm talking penance and rehab.
