All the fusions have different dances and moves. And sometimes it takes awhile to figure out a groove that works for both parties. Amethyst and Pearl had trouble fusing in 'Giant Woman', but in 'Log Date 7 15 2', they fused effortlessly. The relationship of those two has grown, and so has their understanding of each other. Check out the theory below about what different dance moves might mean.
So y’know how Pearl and Amethyst’s fusion dance in Log Date 7 15 2 doesn’t end with a dip?
Whenever Pearl and Amethyst fuse with Garnet they always like WOOSH into Garnet
Jasper dipped Lapis when fusing into Malachite
Rose dipped Pearl to form Rainbow Quartz
Damn even Connie dipped Steven for Stevonnie
But Ruby and Sapphire don’t dip when fusing
It’s just Opal and Garnet who’s fusion dances don’t have dips
The fact that there isn’t a dip might represent how they see each other as equals? HM
