The many phases of Phosphophyllite!!!!
A relaxed smile for a little more insight.
It’s looking more likely than ever that Phos will be used to pray away the lunarians and be separated from the surviving gems, leaving them all alone. It’d fit the idea that Phos has become the new sensei who’ll raise a new generation of gems. However, I think we have one more twist in store before the story concludes.
I can’t help but feel that Aechmea isn’t done being a schemer. This moment from Ch.88 has me speculating.
“This is only the beginning” and “hoped for his true happiness” feel poignant in light of Ch.94. For someone who’s planned everything that’s transpired, his choice of words is awfully on the nose. And although his offer about a child is played as a joke… This is Aechmea. Nothing he says can be taken at face value.
There’s also the matter of “big things happening among the moon gems as well” while the earth gems are being brought to the moon. Maybe they found a way to become lunarians like they discussed, though it feels rather convenient to figure that out just hours after bringing it up. There’s potential for them to react to the arrival of the earth gems, though I wouldn’t get my hopes up that they’ll care for their well being. Dusting is unfortunately a very real possibility. I’ve been at a loss for how Yellow Diamond, Goshe, Amethyst, and Cairngorm’s stories will end and I think we’ll soon find out.
Phos’s path forward seems clear, but the last mysteries in front of us are whether Aechmea has one more twist up his sleeve, and what the moon gems plan to do. We have a lot of room to speculate until next month.
Kinda feeling like its working towards phos becoming the new adamant but I also barely comprehended the last chapter
Human Phos’s design has really grown on me after this chapter. I think they’ve been drawn with more mercury on their face which really smoothed out their features and made them look less like sensei junior. I can’t unsee the emo haircut and you can’t say it doesn’t fit them by this point.
I was showing my friends houseki (they don’t read the manga) but I was sharing the pages I liked–and here’s a highlight
Putting a stop to the tranquility.
Chapter 94 got me sad sad I drew them again……sigh
read ch94 raws
Phos: Lunarians, we will not let you harm a single hair on Master’s head
Diamond: Phos, you know that Master don’t have any hair on his head.
Antarticite: She’s right
Phos: Geez, fine, Lunarians we will not let harm a single hair on Master’s eyebrows instead
Jade: Phos, please don’t be rude to our Master
Cinnabar: PHOS…… (angry shouting)
Phos: Oops, Sorry( nervous)
Master; Hmm, this requires lots of meditation
