    I mean, I got into the show because I watched Jailbreak completely out of context because someone posted it on another forum I was reading.

    I mean if it worked for you it worked for you

    But I barely ever care about spoilers and I'd have been super upset if that was the first thing I saw

    i started watching around runaways didn't get invested until jail break? so my advice is just show them your three favourite episodes and damn the consequences.

    About 'Too Far', is it just me or...
    ...does anyone else feel that Amethyst was kinda asking for it when it came to Peridot 'ripping' into her? I mean, she was having a fine time hearing Peridot's brutal honesty about the others. Would have been nice if Amethyst admitted it wasn't exactly cool of her to egg Peridot on as she did.
    I think that she was almost laughing at how absurd it was for Peridot to be saying stuff like that, like how she laughed at Peridot calling items and body parts ridiculous names that no one else uses. She wasn't actually thinking like 'heh, YEAH Steven is an abomination, say it right in his little smooshy freak of nature face!!!' It got away from her, though, and became mean.

    I think though that was another lesson being taught there, that it can be funny to hear jokes about others, but you don't think about how it would feel to have that scrutiny pointed at you.

    Also we have seen examples before of Amethyst going too far, like when she shapeshifted into Rose in front of Greg, merely to be cruel and didn't spare a thought to the real harm caused. She also is not shy about mocking people to their faces, like when she shifted into Pearl and smacked her ass all 'WHOMP WHOMP'.

    It is also obvious that Amethyst loves and respects the others, so even if she makes off color jokes and goes too far, in the end she really respects and loves them and doesn't mean to hurt those she cares about, she is just impulsive and doesn't think things through and is still learning and growing.

    But Peridot saying what she did about Amethyst was literally her confirming Amethyst's worst fears and insecurities, so while Amethyst saw the other things as obviously ridiculous jokes to be laughed at, things that were not 'real', the comments about her were just how things are.

    It's hypocritical for sure though, and hopefully she learned a bit from that situation.

    I saw a clip from Jailbreak as the first thing I'd ever watched from Steven Universe, and that's what made me watch it. It's really hard to get myself into new shows these days, so it had to be something like that to get me hooked. I mean even with how great I know Adventure Time is, I couldn't get myself past the first season.

    Normally I care about spoilers, but only if it's something I already care about.

    Yeah, I don't have a lot of time to invest in something like a long-running television series, so Jailbreak being so weird sans context caught my attention. I don't think anything else would have.

    One thing about the latest episode I'm curious about.
    There has been no real indication over the nature of Amethyst's "brokenness". The obvious question then is, can it be overcome? Is it possible that we'll see Amethyst change to a larger form, whether permantently or just for when she really needs it? When it was revealed that she regains her shape much faster than the other gems I think it was suggested that this was simply due to her messy, impulsive nature, but it seems logical that the fact that she was built to support a much larger physical form is another factor.

    I'm not sure how I would feel about a Jasper-sized Amethyst, but if she keeps growing more mature as the series goes on I could see it possibly working.

    Maybe people from the Negaverse are just super weak to regular flowers.

    Maybe it's a Signs type deal and they were all "Yep, we'll be just fine invading this place so long as there are zero roses anywhere."

    The way she explained it, that Amethyst was so small because she didn't know she wasn't supposed to be that way, made it seem like something that she could overcome if she decided to do so.

    But that may just be my interpretation.

    I could see Amethyst going Jasper sized for an ep or two, then deciding it didn't feel right for her and going back to her normal size.

    I mean, couldn't she just change the next time she poofs?

    The whole poof thing seems to fit along 'you look like what you think you should look like' which, in addition to being a really good message about gender fluidity and spurning its norms, but it'd be a separate decision on her part.

    Maybe, maybe not. I recall her trying to make a more muscular form in Reformed, and that didn't turn out so hot. Though that could be because she rushed it.

    Either way, Peridot also says that her size seems to have had no effect on her actual strength.

    Well I mean we've already seen Amethyst take on a bigger form as Purple Puma, even though it was only temporary. I think it may be possible for her to take such a form "permanently" if she were to do it when reforming.

    my understanding is that while they can take any form they want, the form's stability is directly related to how much the form is appropriate for who they are

    so even though amethyst could choose to take on a bigger form, her natural tendency trends toward the smaller "runt" form that she has now, and the more she strays from it the worse

    that said, the gems' "ideal" form obviously isn't set in stone, and changes over time as their personalities develop

    but 'who you are' is ideally an entirely internal concept. It's how she sees herself, so therefore that's what she looks like. So if she really chose to be bigger, because that's how she sees herself, there's no reason that couldn't be her permanent form. She did it with her hair after seeing Greg. She had short hair, saw Greg's hair, decided 'man that looks baller as hell' and then changed it.

    yeah no totally

    i just don't think she can say "well i'm supposed to be jasper-size so hup" and have success

    she would have to honestly feel like that's the body that represents her

    that's why all the bodies she kept whipping up in that one episode kept falling apart so easily
