With the recent events of Wanted, fans of the show Steven Universe have been given a lot to to think about. Is Yellow Diamond the true culprit in Pink Diamond's death? And if so, why? With this playlist I aim to speculate on the perhaps complex relationships between three diamonds: Yellow, Blue, and Pink. If Yellow Diamond truly did shatter Pink, what was the reason? Was it a matter of strategy? A fit of anger? Was it done to get closer to Blue Diamond? As we have seen, Blue and Pink were very close, and Blue is still in mourning over Pink's death. Blue and Yellow's relationship is more rocky, with Yellow wanting Blue to get over her grief and move on... but why? Perhaps it is just the way Yellow deals with catastrophe, to shut away all feeling- what's the use of it, anyway?

In Yellow Diamond's debut song, she appears to have a sadness of her own over the death of Pink, but in The Trial, her reactions and rushing of the trial seem very unusual, even for someone inclined to shut her own feelings away for the greater good. It is likely she knows more than she lets on about Pink's untimely demise. That does not mean she may not feel remorse for whatever she may have done, perhaps even regretting whatever her part was.

This playlist explores the possibility of a complicated relationship between the Diamonds- perhaps a love triangle of sorts, or a mentor-apprentice relationship that went sour. There is no specific message I wish to portray with these tracks, merely a feeling. It may turn out in canon that Yellow Diamond had nothing to do with Pink's shattering, in which case this playlist could be considered to be based on an AU. This list is meant to be merely exploratory.

Enjoy. ...less
