Obsidian: Gem War by YNot1989 Obsidian: Gem War by YNot1989
Just having a little fun with Steven Universe Lore with my OC Obsidian. I'm seriously waiting for a show as gutsy as Steven Universe to use some of the more annoying fans' complaints regarding male gems to introduce more direct theme's about gender identity and cultural assimilation.

I am only just a little ashamed of how much time I've spent obsessing about the lore of this show.

So your also one of those who try to piece together the history of this universe? Have you noticed that every question answered or info learned only raises 20 more questions. In my opinion that's great writing as it makes you come back for more every time.

You follow the summer event?

And have you suffered from the hiatus's as well?

Good to know someone else is as SU liker here.

Well that looks great. So is the concept behind this.

But why does Obsidian look so much like Lapis Lazuli?

Its a fan theory of mine that Lapis is a rare "elemental" type Gem, and Obsidian is of a similar caste, so they'd have a similar appearance.

That outfit is really unfitting, considering Obsidian's bulky frame.

Are lapis lazuli and obsidian as gemstones even close?

No, the idea was that they serve similar roles, but have polar opposite powers. Lazulis control water, Obsidians control fire.
