Phos' lips look so soft here!>>183604391
Rutile has been trying to fix Pad's condition for hundreds of years. Maybe even a thousand years. He spends every waking moment thinking about Pad. Rutile can fix any gem's injury, no matter how ridiculous (read: Phos), except for the gem he cares the most for.
He wants Pad to be fixed.
A long time goes by. Eventually Rutile's feelings change from "I want Pad to be fixed" to ">>>I<<< want to fix Pad."
He has made his entire existence about fixing Pad.
Then suddenly Phos "steals" Pad away, to the fucking moon, then brings him back, fully repaired, only a month later. So the thing Rutile has been spending every thought on, the reason why he has been operating on Pad's body hundreds of thousands of times has just vanished into thin air. And not only was it someone else who repaired Pad, it was done very easily.
Someone calculated that Rutile was operating on Pad about every three days.
The moon people put zero effort into fixing Pad, while Rutile failed over and over and over every three days for centuries.
