Liking the ideas of retooling the extra season of Future into something for S5 or an S6.
You could even throw the movie in the S6 for some big special because that's really what it was.
Main things.>Pearl is not sacrificing episode slots to relapse into her MUH ROSE problems over and over again for an unsatisfactory ending of 'she'll always have problems but will adapt to them' that's a fucking shitty send off and does not fix her problems.>Townie episodes can go honestly, but if done in OP's direction will be tolerable.>Either make Malachite not last so long, or just don't do it, it ruins both Lapis and Jasper's chances for screen time.>Agreed on fusions, especially since they proved with Bismuth that they could have gotten new VAs at any moment.>Steven's bullshit early conflict that Rebecca always teased about of 'human or gem' needs to either not exist or actually be reinforced, it went no where and the fact it's the justification for townie episodes is retarded.>Drop Rose = PD altogether. It got revealed too early, or rework it so that it's not easily deduced in SEASON FUCKING 1>With the loss of potential Pearl relapse episodes, give Garnet, Ruby, and Sapphire some secluded screentime, they're the most troublesome characters for a lot because they're just 'the gay couple' character, even though they showed great potentially canonically.>Peridot doesn't lose her enhancers but learns to not be reliant on them, just that they're adequate, but overtime, she's mixing it up with control of her new power AND the tech.>Lapis and Jasper already glossed over but definitely don't let Lapis be so bipolar as before, and give Jasper some time to show some positives.>Don't make Connie so 'perfect' and 'unable to be criticized' she's a fucking human girl too, she needs MORE than just Rose's sword and barely a year of training to be useful in a fight.
If you're going to retell the story, yeah, make S6 pretty much Diamond Days + The Movie.
Also Nephrite thx
