• Fan Theory: The Future of Jasper/Lapis/Malachite Will Be Good?

    There have been various hints from the Crewniverse about Lapis and Jasper unfusing from Malachite. How and when is still a mystery, and what their relationship will be afterwards is the object of much fan speculation. The Crewniverse is always hinting at things, both in show and online. Check out a theory that examines some of the hints about Jasper/Lapis/Malachite, after the break.

    Does the Crewniverse know something we don't? Of course they do, the real question is: Are they dropping hints at what is to come?

    Might the answer lie in Malachite's metaphysical properties????

    According to crystalvaults.com:
    "As a stone of transformation, Malachite encourages change and emotional risk-taking.[...] It encourages the expression of feelings, alleviating shyness and teaching the responsibility for one's own thoughts and actions. It supports friendships and empathy for other people. [...] Malachite helps battle depression and anxiety, gives resistance to emotional blackmail and heals emotional abuse, especially when suffered in childhood. It also encourages healthy relationships based on love and not need."

    According to healing-crystals-for-you.com:
    "It helps to clear and activate all the chakras, has a lovely stabilizing energy that helps you to feel more balanced emotionally.[...] This lovely green crystal encourages loyalty and practicality in partnerships, and faithfulness in all types of relationships, whether love, business or friendship. [...] It helps you to open your heart to others and it brings peaceful harmonious energy to all types of relationships."

    According to healingcrystals.com:
    "Malachite is often called the “stone of transformation” and is used for deep energy cleaning, bringing healing and positive transformation to the wearer. [...] Malachite amplifies energies of all kinds, both positive and negative. One of the most important healing stones, Malachite helps the user acknowledge, draw out, and discharge negative energy, including old emotional patterns, past traumas, and suppressed feelings."

    To sum it up: Malachite= Transformation, Balance, Protection, Relationship healing, Spiritual healing, Emotional clarity, The warding away of negative energies

    Why do I think Malachite will end up reflecting her gemstone's metaphysical properties?

    The show has so far been very consistent with the other gems and gem fusions reflecting their stone's metaphysical properties.

    -Sugilite: associated with self-awareness and identity, freedom, stress relief ("I am myself and I'm sick of being split up! So you better get used to me, baby!")
    -Sardonyx: happiness, optimism, confidence, mental discipline/self control (perfect, because in "Cry for Help" the CGs specifically formed Sardonyx to keep the out-of-control Sugilite problem from happening again)
    -Garnet: known as "the stone of commitment" and "the stone of health", love, devotion, energy, strength (spot on)

    TL;DR: Based on Rebecca Sugar's decision for them to fuse into Malachite rather than any other stone out there, Jasper and Lapis reconciling or coming to an agreement over something in order to stabilize Malachite is end game... I guess you could say that their future is written in stone. /:-D

    This theory would not only tie into the "Garnet secretly knows where Malachite is" theory, but also the prediction that the Malachite arc and the Cluster arc will end up colliding by the end of the second season, just like how the "Where the fuck is Lapis" arc and the "Peridot reported this, now what?" arc collided at the end of the first season. Until Jasper and Lapis stop working against each other, I don't think Malachite can become her own identity, so they're going to have to allow their minds to become one before Malachite can gain her own mind and voice, help stop the cluster, or maybe even unfuse without causing damage to Jasper and Lapis's gems. (I could be wrong on that though, maybe she is already able to form her own thoughts and decisions somehow even though Jasper and Lapis's motives are both conflicting inside her?)

    Am I jumping to conclusions? I VERY WELL MIGHT BE. Ronaldo would be proud of me. We haven't seen Jasper, Lapis, or Malachite since their short appearance in Chille Tid and thanks to the hiatus we're not going to be seeing them again until 2016... I'm just feeling the effects of bondage mom deprivation is all.
