>>119486750>He was all like “oh no I can’t talk to them about this shit”
and yet they still helped him regardless of him wanting to be open or not, which is a great tactic to do with these types of people. They were there for him all the time. Not to mention how he did talk to them about some things, like with Bismuth about relating to humans>and the doctor thing was Connie’s idea, not theirs.
I'm counting Connie as part of the family who helped him, who also did everything right. The gems did so too.>The advice wasn’t really helpful since it comes from them having a different context of what is going on with him
So what, are they supposed to mind rape him to know whats going on? the crystal gems were open and supportive of Steven the whole time, and once it got too far they made an intervention. What, did you want them to lock him in the bathroom and read his mind with gem powers, actively forcing his issues out and ruining his privacy?>The hug was more better times with Steven fully showing his pain and realizing the Gems were willing to accept him like that
They already accepted him like that before. Steven ruined Amethysts' plans for the other gems, he ruined Peridots flower dome, he almost got the Pearls killed, he broke Greg's car, he almost crushed his friends to death, he attempted to kill White Diamond, he proposed marriage to Connie. And after all that shit, not a single one of them held any resentment or hatred towards him and were willing to give him privacy when he needed.
But I guess what they lacked was a huge gigantic kaiju and attempts at murder. Thats so relatable for children!
