WHY I SHIP LAPEARL! that thing no one asked me to make but I wanted to talk about; A Guide.
1. COMFORT! Both gems have been through traumatic experiences! Like Malachite, the gem war, Rose's death etc. What's the best way to heal? Dealing with it with someone who understands! Woot!
2. Homesickness! Both Pearl and Lapis miss homeworld, and know they can never go home. While Pearl accepts this and loves the earth, she has no one to talk to about it (Amethyst being a earth gem, and Garnet not being the sharing type) so this would work out great!
3. The AESTHETIC! Hoooo boy does this ship look adorable! Everything about their looks look GREAT together! Can you imagine their fusion? I can, and it's a reason to live!
4. Growth! Both characters have a lot they can learn from each other, like Pearl being less uptight, or Lapis learning to love the earth.
In conclusion, whether they end up together (so unlikely haha I'm not delusional) or at the very least become friends,, I would be very happy thanks for reading my ridiculous essay thank you and goodnight #Lapearl #pearlapis #saltwater #stevenuniverse #ship #yourewelcome
