Caste system, no concept of currency, all the universe is a work camp unless you are invited to a ball hosted by Pink and everyone’s role is so choreographed you may as well be telling jokes to Stalin.
I wish we’d have gotten more Steven dreams of Pink. Maybe an episode in Future with him unable to shut out her life.
We know White laughed freely and played games with the rest at first.
We know that at some point it became apparent to Pink that she was being used as the shared Pearl+Spinel to the other three so she started demanding a colony to get respect. We know Yellow and Blue failed and became frustrated at her refusal to learn their roles of external and internal rule, and that White withdrew and censored her own emotions more and more until Volleyball was cracked and Pink was grounded in the tower for an extremely long time even by Diamond standards. Blue gives Earth to Pink, but acts as a helicopter parent while Yellow waits for her to mess up and White waits for Pink to come back.
Then war, Yellow starts developing technology including an emergency “end rebellion button” with the Cluster while Blue attempts to lead from the front but is VERY bad at war.
Then death faking, White lives in denial that Pink is gone while withdrawing to leave Yellow and Blue to rule aside from the rare order from the puppeted Volleyball, Yellow goes on a colonizing spree with what little resources Homeworld can spare while authorizing an explosion in technology, Blue does fuckall but mourn while the Empire runs on autopilot.
What I want to know is what was happening with the empire as a whole through all of this. Its like how we know nothing about Earth aside from Tunguska taking out Russia, no North Korea, Florida is an island chain, Britain exists, Atlantis was a Gem city, and Delmarva is a thing. The worldbuilding needs additions.
