An old PBS show from the early 00s is DragonTails. In the intro-song, it says, “There’s Zak and Wheezie and the tales of fun/Cause you know two heads are better than one.” A good reminder to kids not to be loners and to work at their relationships because when it comes to life and facing problems…

And then there’s Garnet. The ultimate “fusion.” She is two and one to the extreme of two becoming one. One mind, one body. Individually, she is made up of two beautiful and different parts. The perfection of her fusion is also clear in the form that they take. Ruby and Sapphire so completely become Garnet that they share a nearly normal humanoid body form. The share arms, legs, mouth, and only add a combo of their eyes, and this is because it is through the eyes that they channel their greatest strength: the ability to see possibilities for the future.

What’s so great about this moment as a first-time viewer is the realization that it explains why Garnet is so beyond thrilled when Steven and Connie fuse. It also makes the advice for what fusions are and how to handle fusions 100 percent authoritative since she is actually two become one to the point of the two being the one all the time (though I do wonder if they ever separate in her room and talk).

Garnet’s advice on fusing: Stevonnie… Listen to me. You are not two people, and you are not one person. You…are an experience! Make sure you’re a good experience. Now go… have… fun!
