You keep insisting that Smoky Quartz's dialogue is an indication that Gem fusions don't pick their names.
Smoky's dialog is "I think a Rose Quartz and an Amethyst make a smoky Quartz". Notice they say "I THINK", this to me suggests that Smoky wasn't stating it as a fact that any Rose and Amethyst fusion must always be called "Smoky Quartz", but rather just decided that a Rose an Amethyst make a Smoky Quartz. It did take them awhile to think of their name.
Also, bare in mind that our Rose wasn't even a Rose Quartz so much as a Diamond. Even if it was still a secret at the time, so if fusion names come naturally based on what two gem fuse, then why did Smoky recognise themselves as a "Smoky Quartz"? Shouldn't they have recognised themselves as some other kind of fusion with a different name?
malachite serves as a potential contradiction because of the emotion and direction of the scene, lapis and jasper were fighting with all their power, why would they "name themselves", they're literally struggling constantly, it just doesn't add up
its really important to note that what rebecca says is not final information, as someone who writes stories in her spare time i very much know this to be true
this isn't canon but its still interesting to say, as for why steven doesn't recognize himself as a pink diamond, i feel as though his human brain overrides the gemstone's original coding (seen with pink steven), i take "i feel like amethyst knows this" to indicate that amethyst's gemstone code is where the name originates, while this isn't important to the series (since steven is the only gem/human mix), if this were true that would mean two gem/humans fusing would probably be a mixed name like stevonnie or steg, their gemstones would change color but they wouldn't have that gem as their name
I know what Rebecca said, but it still makes sense.
Why would Smock Quartz's name even be in Amethysts "gem code" anyway? Mixed gem fusions were illegal prior to Era 3, so why program the names of potential mixed-fusions within the gems code in the first place? Especially considering the countless combinations to there are.
Alright, this is getting kind of fan-faction-y here. It's pretty much common knowledge that Era 1 was the beginning and that White Diamond was the creator of the other gems.
What your saying in no way proves fusions names aren't decided. I mean, why would a Ruby and a Sapphire make a Garnet anyway? Rubies and Sapphires are both so similar to each other, but have nothing to do with garnets. So that would logically mean "Garnet" is a name she chose and not one just laying around in her gem code.
its really not common knowledge, they could be planning some kind of twist or subverted expectations for steven universe future
i'm pretty confident if they showed the fusion of crystal gem ruby and pearl, it would be rhodonite, or the fusion of rhodonite and padparadscha would be sardonyx, but its not important since these fusions likely will not be seen
You know, after doing a bit of thinking, I think you make some good points. Don't get exited. I think some of what you said might be right, but not all of it.
Maybe some fusions like Smoky Quartz, Zebra Jasper (corrupted fusion), and Lemon Jade probebly have naturally occurring names due to being fusions of Gems of the same type. I know Smoky is technically not, but this is before they knew Rose was Pink Diamond, and as you said, they got the name from Amethyst.
Fusions of different Gem types (like Garnet) probebly don't have naturally occurring names, so they pick one themselves. I mean, in "The Answer" she didn't know who she was, so she probebly couldn't just know her name naturally.
all i'm saying is that say, any ruby and sapphire, would be called garnet
and they dont just say "OH I WANNA BE CALLED PINKISH YELLOW DIAMOND-AGATE", its more like "i am called" not "i want to be called"
but if rose fused with a rose quartz, they'd say their name is rose quartz, even if they know it isn't, in order to maintain the disguise, but if steven fused with a rose quartz now they'd make and be called something else
Sunstone, 2.0, Smoky and Obsidian are all less than 50% human, I understand that the category wording is janky considering we're dealing with hybrids and percentages here so I suggest that you talk to the mods about this because it's definately a debate on if they can count as human because they have a little human DNA in them.
even with a source given, i think we should list her on the unknown gems page but add trivia that in concept she was going to be larimar's uncorrupted form, but that rebecca wasn't satisfied with her and made a new design for larimar, and thus she probably will not reappear
idk this just seems more professional than just changing her out of nowhere
imo they should be listed as separate characters (since they definitely would be were they to ever appear again), but it should be mentioned that they were going to be the designs for certain uncorrupted gems, before being replaced in favor of the newer ones
Hi, you might remember me from GC's wiki? I drew a fusion of my peri and your Moonstone. Well, I decided to redraw is too!
I wasn't sure where else to talk to you, since last time I messaged you, an argument sorta happened, and seeing you active here seemed like the only safer place to talk? Plus, your tumblr seemed empty soooo yeah.
