Did Peridot help create the Prime or Beta Kindergarten in this AU? If she did, how does Jasper, Lapis, Steven, Rose, and Amethyst feel about it?
nah, Peridot’s still era 2, so she wasn’t around for all that. When she got stranded on earth, Jasper was not yet a part of the team, but Rose and Lapis were pretty adamant about how sucking the life out of the earth was, like, not a great move and they definitely shouldn’t do that anymore.
they were so adamant, in fact, that Peridot thought they might try to shatter her or something if she told them about the gem experiments she’d been sent to check up on, so she never told them. for five thousand years. it would just be awkward if she said anything now! (don’t worry, Secret Team’s handling it.)
Jasper’s feelings are a bit more complicated. Rose is able to sway her pretty easily, mostly because she already has that self loathing thing going on. her Kindergarten was an embarrassment and the quality of the Prime Kindergarten is just a reminder of that, so she’s very stand-offish about the whole thing.
Rose, Lapis, and Jasper all know that Peridot has some connection to the Kindergartens and that she visits them often for some reason. they don’t like it, but also don’t try to stop her (once she finally gains their trust and officially joins the Crystal Gems, that is.)
Steven is conflicted. Peridot gets so enthusiastic when talking about the Kindergartens but it just makes everyone else uncomfortable. poor kid just wants everyone to be happy!
Amethyst is just happy she and Peri get to hang out.
