Quote
(โ€ฆ) I feared more the death of others. I did not want to lose them, and I worried about them while they were alive. Sometimes, I think that I concerned myself so much with the possibility of their loss that I never truly took pleasure in the fact of their existence.
John Connolly, from The Book Of Lost Things (via adrasteiax)
#[[ ever since the war. Beforehand she had no concept of death per se. No desire to strive against her potential shattering or#fear rejuvenation. Why would she? She had no friends. No relationships. Just her purpose & the desire to fulfill it. Up until everything#changed. Up until Ignorance was no longer bliss. Up until her first few comrades were shattered on the battlefield#up until the reality of losing Rose or being rejuvenated became so unbearable to her that she fought tooth & nail to protect#what little she had been able to claim for herself. I feel like people underestimate the impact the rebellion had not only on Earth#but also on the very Gems that participated. Pearl suddenly developed a fear of shattering in addition to dreading the mere#concept of rejuvenation. Something she simply accepted as necessary & 'no big deal' beforehand. But now?? Losing your sense of#identity? All your memories & progress ? Ye a h. I know Peridot jokingly said that 'she would lose her character development' in the movie#but it's a real & horrible thought for all the rebelling Gems. Just how death suddenly has weight to it#& that kind of weight is heavy. Moreso after Bismuth's 'death'. Pearl grows extremely unsettled after it. To the point where she willingly#allows herself to be persuaded by Rose regarding the fae shattering. She was devastated. Emotionally agitated & just so tired of fighting /#losing people. hwfegzwefgzuwegfuewgf it's a very very complex topic tbh & I will write about it eventually but ... yeah#Pearl developing a fear of death. Not of her own? She didn't really value her own life up until Rose told her that she dreamt#but the death of her comrades & loved ones. I am rambling again I know but... boy that's such an important thing to keep in mind ]]#i. ย ๐—ถ๐—ป๐˜๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐˜€๐—ฝ๐—ฒ๐—ฐ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป.#q.#// long tags

โ› Itโ€™s only natural to worry about her, Pearl. Thatโ€™s apart of loving someone, Iโ€™ve learned. Just as she worries about you and if youโ€™ll make it through the next battle. Sometimes, itโ€™s better to simply look towards life after all of this. Give yourself something to look forward to, something else to fight for.โœ
Tumblr media
โœฉโ‹† . โ€œyou sound just like her.โ€ย cue a pauseย โ€“ย โ€˜twas a statement briskly made / perhaps a tad too impulsive; tone haunted by some involuntary tremble. -- yet again rueful, almost / merely intoned to clandestinely apologize for her outburst / this impromptu sincerity she ought to usually suppress. Oh say, why wouldn't you dream of a brightย future lying ahead instead? Remember what dearest Rose once said: (y)ours to graspย if you would only stop worrying [if you would only stop sacrificing yourself! EASIER SAID THAN DONE].ย 
ย  ย  ย โ€œI know exactly what to look forward to but you -- you canโ€™t possibly get what it means to...โ€ trailing off, half-lidded stare cast aside. โ€œ-- Ruby would understand.โ€
