You probably won't respond to my post anymore because I was out of line, I simply thought you were being overly dismissive when infact I was likely projecting my feelings onto you, I hope you accept this apology, it wasn't my intention I merely got carried away, sorry.
Thank you for the apology. Admittedly, I haven't been paying much attention to the wiki, so I'm sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. Also, I apologize for my response/reply coming off as dismissive, as that wasn't my intent. I just feel that given the context and themes of the show, Steven's perception of a "grandmother" may place less emphasis on the "physical" bond, though we really haven't heard much about Steven's extended family even on Greg's side, save Uncle Andy and passing mentions of aunts and uncles. In fact, Gem Harvest explores the meaning/concept of family [for Steven] a bit between the DeMayos and the Gems.
Thank you, that explanation is a little more to my liking honestly, since I guess the gems are basically his adoptive mums (though I'd say Amethyst and the barn dwellers arguably fit the role of sisters to him from how he relates to them and Amethysts being treated kinda like a child by the other CGs) But I guess Pink could also be seen as a demi-deity in relation to Stevens mum and himself? I dunno, placing human roles on them really is a bit off when I think about it but everyone makes connections based on their own experiences in life.

I firmly believe that the Homeworld Gems are conditioned to think of the Diamonds as deities, with the term "matriarch" in lieu of "goddess". They might as well be, as any non-Diamond's existence is treated rather trivially (some more than others obviously) because she "lives to serve". Since Steven doesn't know a whole lot about the Diamonds, it makes sense that he would buy into Gem lore and view the Diamonds, including Pink, in such a manner.
I'm keen to know about Rose's relationship with Pink Diamond (i.e., how she interpreted it), and what event(s) triggered her to start a rebellion.
Yep, just watched it for the fourth time. Looks like we'll be finding out more details about the Corrupting Light, how Pink Diamond chose Earth, and maybe a White Diamond name drop.
There have been several theories for Pink Diamond's connection/significance to Earth, but I was never particularly attached to any of them, aside from the planet being her first colony. Now, I'm interested in knowing why she chose Earth, and if those other Diamond-claimed planetary bodies are also in our solar system.
