Fanfic / Connie and the B-Team

Go To

With Steven being especially busy with Gem missions, Connie takes to hanging out at the barn with Peridot, Lapis, and a recently redeemed Jasper. And soon they're all embroiled in their own mission to protect the Earth when a bunch of Gem tech starts attacking the city.

Connie and the B-Team is a Steven Universe Fanfiction written by Feraligreater 328 on Fan Fiction Dot Net. It is basically a "What If?" scenario note  that roughly starts after Earthlings (or maybe Mindful Education, the narration willingly remains vague about that). The story follows the adventures of Connie, Peridot, Lapis and a redeemed Jasper, while the main plot is happening off-screen.note 


The author has also written another short story called Uneasy Frenemies, that gives a few clues about how Jasper and Bismuth may have been redeemed.note  Even though according to Feraligreater 328 the short story was less about narrative and more about trying to find the voice for a couple of characters he hadn't written yet (before beginning Connie and the B Team), it could still be considered a prequel.

Of course, due to the fanfic's premise, there are divergences from canon (and there are Original Characters).

As of May 2017, the story has gone on hiatus. The author returned in March 2018...only to announce that they were cancelling the fic. Every chapter past chapter 47 was then deleted, and the author started work on a follow-up that adhered a bit more closely to the canon events that had come and gone during the fic’s run. That fic, The Brilliant War, can be found here.


Connie and the B-Team provides examples of:

  • A Day in the Limelight: For Connie, Peridot, Lapis and Jasper.
  • Adorkable:
    • Peridot, who's a big Fangirl of Captain Quazar.
    • Lapis and Connie, when they geek out over books.
    • Black Onyx, oh so much. Especially when she tries to pronounce Beach City.
  • All There in the Manual: Uneasy Frenemies helps to understand a little more some of the plot points of Connie and the B Team, mostly those centered around Bismuth's Heel–Face Turn. Indeed, in the main story, she's rather abruptly introduced as an ally of the Crystal Gems. Uneasy Frenemies shows that she has come to terms with the fact that Steven is not Rose Quartz. She's also shown ready to fight the Shatter Machine to protect him and the other Crystal Gems and grateful that he told the other Gems the truth about her and Rose Quartz. She even ends up Taking the Bullet for Steven.

  • Aloof Ally: Lapis and Jasper are this towards the Crystal Gems. Especially Jasper.
  • Anti-Hero: Jasper may now fight alongside the good guys, but she's still as violent and bloodthirsty during a fight as before. And she doesn't care about the destruction she may cause in Beach City during her battles. At one point, during her battle against the Faceter, Connie understands that if she and Lapis weren't there to canalize her, Jasper would damage Beach City without a second thought.
  • Arc Villain: The fanfic is divided into Arcs, each one having its main villain.
    • The first Arc (aptly named the "Bridget Arc") has Bridget, with White Diamond as the Bigger Bad. She's the one who reactivated and sent all the war machines after the heroes.
    • The second Arc, called the "Dreams and Nightmares Arc", has White Diamond, even though all the events happen in the dreams of the B-Team's members.
    • The third Arc has Eyeball and is logically called the "Return of the Rubies Arc".
    • The fourth Arc, called the "Jasper Redemption Arc" and told via flashbacks, has Yellow Diamond.
    • The fifth Arc, called the "Beach Fest Arc" has a collective villain, a group of corrupted Aquamarines who end up fusing into one giant shark-like monster in a loving homage to Jaws.
    • The sixth arc, the Omega Colony Arc, doesn't actually have an antagonist, as it focuses on the revelation that the B-Team accidentally created a small colony of defective Gems.
    • The seventh arc, called the "Dragon's Breath Arc" has the titular Dragon's Breath, who was sent by the Diamonds to take down the Crystal Gems. There's also Morion, a Torture Technician and Dragon's Breath's handler, and Holly Blue Agate, who wants revenge
  • Ascended Extra:
    • Mystery Girl/Pink Hair (Pearl's crush from Last One Out Of Beach City) has an expanded role in this story, helping the Gems out on occasion. There are even a few implications that she and Pearl are an Official Couple.
    • Canon!White Diamond's only appearances as of now are in a mural, in the Diamonds' sigils and as a giant structure in Homeworld. In the fanfic, her influence is far more important. Bridget used to be one of her officers and all the problems the Crystal Gems had with Yellow Diamond in the "Jasper Redemption Act" happened because she ordered Yellow to bring her Jasper. Therefore, when Blue Diamond sends a special team to assassinate Jasper and the Crystal Gems to cover up Yellow's failure in Chapter 48, White Diamond is still indirectly responsible of the events. The story even implies that she will become the Big Bad.
  • Badass Boast:
    • Jasper likes them.
    • Ammolite too. And hers are even longer than Jasper's. Logical, since she's modelled after a professional wrestler and Jasper is part of the fusion.
  • Badass Bookworm:
  • Badass in Distress: Lapis, Peridot and Connie are at one point captured and held hostage by the Ruby Squad.
  • Badass Normal:
    • Connie, being the only fully human of the fighters. It becomes a major plot point during the battle against Bridget, as being fully human makes her completely immune against her opponent's Corruption Beam.
    • Onion and his gang are able to fight Lapis (although she's clearly holding back) and don't seem to be frightened by her water-controlling powers.
  • Batman Gambit: Garnet saw everything that was going to happen in chapter 47 through her future vision-specifically, Pink Hair and Pearl getting closer-and recruited Steven to help make sure it happened.
  • Beach Episode: The "Beach Fest Arc", complete with an homage to Jaws. It also counts as a Breather Episode, after the tensed and emotionally heavy "Jasper Redemption Arc".
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: Uneasy Frenemies hints that the main factor of Bismuth's Heel–Face Turn was that Steven told the others the truth about her incident with Rose Quartz. More or less confirmed in Chapter 34 of Connie and the B-Team.
  • Berserk Button: The Faceter launching her into Lapis and causing them to almost accidentally fuse causes Jasper to fly into a rage and unleash a terrifying No-Holds-Barred Beatdown on it.
  • Bigger Bad: White Diamond during the first Arc. Although the villain doesn't take orders from her anymore (since she's been Missing In Action during the war), she still does what she does out of loyalty for her Diamond. The "Dreams and Nightmares" Arc implies that she may become the Big Bad.
  • The Big Gal: Jasper's role on the "B-Team".
  • Big Guy, Little Guy: Tiger Jasper and Lapis "Lappy" Lazuli (a Lapis Lazuli who's smaller than our Lapis). They're known as Tiger and The Little One by the other Omega Colony Gems.
  • Blofeld Ploy: Poor Doc ends up as the victim of one, when Bridget decides to show the effects of her Corruption Ray.
  • Blue and Orange Morality: Implied with White Diamond. While the fanfic shows that she does care about her sisters, it's also implied that she would see nothing wrong with demoting or even shattering them if they failed her.
  • Bookworm: Lapis is almost as big a book-lover as Connie, with the two geeking out over the Unfamiliar Familiar series.
  • Bound and Gagged: Happens to Lapis, Peridot and Connie when they are captured by the Ruby Squad in Chapters 24 and 25.
  • Breath Weapon: Jasper's fire breath.
    Lapis moved out of the way and Jasper stood at the opening to the newly erected silo. The Quartz took a deep breath, her stomach expanding out wide, and then she belched out a giant stream of flames. The fire spread out over the concrete foundation and quickly cooked it, turning it a clean, pristine white.
  • Casanova Wannabe: In Chapter 39, during the Beach Episode, Kevin tries to flirt with Jasper, then Lapis. However, his arrogance and his invasions of personal space are a real turn-off. Jasper actually ends up beating him up. Twice. It is glorious.
  • Claustrophobia: Chapter 47 reveals Pink Hair/S has this when they get trapped in an elevator.
  • Curbstomp Battle: The Crystal Gems vs. Yellow Diamond does not go well in the Crystal Gems' favor. It's enough to get Steven to run and release Bismuth to stand a chance. Unfortunately she doesn't help, and it's only Yellow Diamond's clone releasing and curing Jasper that saves them.
  • The Determinator: Bridget spent thousands of years to free herself from Earth's crust by digging through it with no tools whatsoever out of sheer loyalty for her Diamond and her mission.
  • Dirty Coward: Played with Yellow Diamond and Blue Diamond. They're very strong, but they never fight themselves, and even when they do, they just send a super-charged fake of themselves, because they are lazy cowards according to Jasper.
  • The Dreaded: The mere mention of White Diamond is enough to cause shivers of fear to any Gem who ever met her. Even Yellow Diamond and Blue Diamond, her own sisters, are afraid of her.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones:
    • While calling them "evil" is up to debate (except with Eyeball), the members of the Ruby Squad are all worried about what may have happened to Doc, since they can't find her.
    • Blue Diamond and Yellow Diamond genuinely care about each other, to the point that they make up stories to protect each other from White Diamond's wrath. They also genuinely love and miss their sister Pink Diamond.
    • Downplayed with White Diamond, who sincerely loves her sisters and is proud and happy to see Yellow Diamond help Blue Diamond with her depression. However, if Yellow Diamond's reaction is anything to go by, she also wouldn't hesitate to take Yellow's position as a Diamond or perhaps even shatter her if she found out her failure to bring her Jasper.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Yellow Diamond and Blue Diamond can't stand Holly Blue Agate's brownnosing, to the point that they treat their Pearls better than her. When she's sent on a mission on Earth, Blue Diamond admits that she wouldn't mind if Agate was shattered during the fight with the Crystal Gems.
  • Everyone Has Standards: Jasper is both horrified and disgusted by the effects of the Omega Injectors, machines designed during the war against Rose Quartz to quickly spawn easily trainable Gem soldiers. However, the Omega Injectors were defective, due to being a rushed project. The Gems they created were poor malformed creatures that could only survive a few hours and felt tremendous amounts of pain. Also a case of Even Evil Has Standards, since she felt that way even during the war against Rose Quartz.
    Jasper: "Unless I was directly ordered to... I never advocated use of them after that day. I wanted to defeat Rose... I wanted to avenge my Diamond... but even I couldn't stomach watching that..."
  • Foreshadowing: The characters' dreams during the second arc (called the Dreams and Nightmares Arc) all feature White Diamond in some fashion.note  In Chapter 41, we learn that it's the case with everyone in Beach City.
  • Freakiness Shame: Rainbow Variscite, the Fusion of Lapis, Jasper, and Peridot suffers from this when they see themself after fusing for the first time. Stevonnie and Alexandrite talk to her and help her begin to feel better about it.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: Both Peridot and Bridget, who are able to repair old Gem technology which dates back to the war against Rose Quartz.
  • Genius Bruiser: Ammolite, being a fusion of Jasper and Peridot is one by combining Jasper's strength and military training/combat experience with Peridot's highly analytical mind. She even weaponized her professional wrestler's Large Ham tendencies, using it as a way to distract opponents and to buy time in order to find the best strategy.
  • Gentle Giant: Rainbow Variscite, the massive, monstrous-appearing fusion of Lapis, Peridot, and Jasper, formed with multiple arms (including several that act as legs) and giant mouths. However, unlike the similar-appearing Malachite, Rainbow Variscite is such a tenderhearted soul she apologizes for attacking Bridget's Gem Mutants subconsciously, picked them up, asked if they were OK, and begged them to come back out. She had to be convinced by Alexandrite and Stevonnie that it's better for the Gem Mutants to be poofed since being formed was agony. And even then, she apologized for hurting them and telling them she'd find some way to help them.
  • Getting Crap Past the Radar: In Chapter 25, Jasper takes Stabber in the Savannah, in order for him to have some fun. Said fun involves a female rhino...
  • Glass Cannon: All the members of the "B-Team" except Jasper. Thanks to their powers, they can dish out impressive damages (Lapis with her water powers, Peridot with her ferrokinesis and Connie with Rose's sword). However, they lack physical strength and resistance. For instance, simple duct tape is enough to immobilize the three of them, as demonstrated when the Ruby Squad raids the barn in Chapters 24 and 25.
  • Godzilla Threshold: When Yellow Diamond appears on Earth and pretty much curbstomps all the Crystal Gems, Steven decides to release Bismuth. Unfortunately it didn't exactly work like Steven wanted.
  • Good Is Not Nice:
    • Jasper may have had a Heel–Face Turn, but she's still as much of a violent Blood Knight as before when it comes to a fight.
    • Chrysocolla, the fusion of Lapis and Peridot, is even worse than Jasper. Haughty towards her allies, sadistic towards her enemies and convinced she doesn't need any help. According to Jasper, she's a combination of the worst traits of her components (namely Peridot's gigantic ego and Lapis's utter indifference).
  • The Heart: Connie's role on the "B-Team".
  • Heel–Face Turn:
    • Jasper had one prior to the beginning of the story. The exact circumstances are revealed in Connie and the B-Team in Chapters 35, 36 and 37.
    • Bismuth too. Uneasy Frenemies showed the beginning of her Heel–Face Turn, then the exact circumstances are revealed in Connie and the B-Team in Chapters 34 and 36.
  • Hidden Depths: Peridot loves professional wrestling. This is even what helped her to bond with Jasper and allowed them to fuse into Ammolite.
  • Hoist by Her Own Petard: Bridget ends up being hit by her own Corruption Beam.
  • Ill Girl: Peridot discovers that the Omega Injector Colony are this by Gem standards due to their weak crystalline structure, meaning a really bad bump could mean instant death due to their gem shattering to dust.
  • The Juggernaut: Yellow Diamond, once she decides to act personally. Or so it seems... Although the super-powered copy she sends also qualifies.
  • Just Following Orders: The corrupted Aquamarines, piranha-looking monsters encountered during the Beach Fest Arc, are Non-Malicious Monsters who are just following the orders they had while they were still Gems working for Homeworld. Namely, getting the oceans rid of metallic debris. They only attack those who have metal on them or try to interfere.
  • Kick the Dog: Bridget uses her Corruption Beam to corrupt Doc, even though they're on the same side, just to make an example and to experiment on her. She has also created hundreds of Gems, only to corrupt and experiment on them.
  • Large Ham: Ammolite, Peridot's and Jasper's fusion. Justified since she's been modelled after the professional wrestlers they watch on TV.
  • The Leader: Lapis' role on the "B-Team".
  • A Lighter Shade of Black: YMMV on whether this is Pragmatic Villainy or being a Token Good Teammate. However, Jasper's and Amethyst's conversation in Chapter 30 implies that Pink Diamond was less bad than the other three Diamonds. Indeed, while she was a Planet Looter who wanted to suck dry Earth's resources with no concerns for the local organic life (in true Homeworld fashion), she also treated her soldiers well and was kind and compassionate by Diamonds' standards. Confirmed by Blue Diamond in Chapter 48.
    Jasper: "Unlike Blue...she was willing to accept anyone. Unlike Yellow...she was willing to be questioned. And unlike White...she was willing to tolerate some levels of failure."
  • Luke, You Are My Father: Turns out that the B-Team accidentally created an entire colony of gems after destroying the Omega Injector and allowing its fuel to seep into the ground.
  • Mad Scientist: Bridget who's basically post-Heel–Face Turn!Peridot's Evil Counterpart, right down to being another Peridot.
  • Mook Horror Show: What the fight with the Ruby Squad becomes after Chrysocolla's arrival.
  • Morality Chain: Jasper's and Eyeball's dialogue during Chapter 28 briefly implies that Pink Diamond was this (to some extent) for the Diamond Authority. Indeed, the other Diamonds enforced harsher policies after her death, like the one mentioned in Released to Elsewhere below.
    Jasper: "You know as well as I do that the old hierarchy died when she did."
  • Morality Pet: The narration makes it clear that it's mostly because of Lapis that Jasper agreed to turn over a new leaf. Over time, she also warmed up to Peridot and warms up to Connie during the course of the first arc.
  • Mundane Utility: The B-Team erects a silo with the help of their powers in Chapter 44:
    Lapis moved out of the way and Jasper stood at the opening to the newly erected silo. The Quartz took a deep breath, her stomach expanding out wide, and then she belched out a giant stream of flames. The fire spread out over the concrete foundation and quickly cooked it, turning it a clean, pristine white.
    Jasper spat the excess flames out of her mouth and smirked. "Okay then. Base building done. Now we just have to add on the extras!"
    The three Gems turned and saw Connie standing there, looking genuinely impressed. "Wow..."
    Lapis cocked her head. "What?"
    Connie shook her head. "Nothing. It's just...well...your powers have a lot more practical uses that I had ever imagined they'd have..."
    Peridot shrugged. "I mean...everything has some kind of practical use. The Gems just don't use their powers for mundane stuff as much as we do."
    Connie nodded. "Yeah. That's true. It's just...kinda cool to see Gem powers get used for things like that!"
  • Nice Character, Mean Actor: Captain Quazar is a great hero and the protector of the universe, a la Captain Harlock. His actor is a self-centered douchebag who looks down on his fans.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: It's Yellow Diamond who cured Jasper of her corruption.
  • Nice to the Waiter: According to Blue Diamond, Pink Diamond was this towards her subjects. (Nice by Diamonds' standards of course.) Blue herself invokes this trope. Using her sister as an example, she's kind and polite while interacting with her servants, to Yellow's dismay.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Jasper gives one to the Faceter after the machine fired a beam that projected her on Lapis and accidently made them fuse (something Lapis didn't want to do, at least yet).
  • Noodle Incident:
    • The story mentions that Jasper was disavowed by Homeworld at some point before the beginning of the story. Chapter 23 implies that this has something to do with an incident with Yellow Diamond. In Chapter 25, we learn that a fight was involved and that Jasper apparently won. The Reveal happens in Chapters 35, 36 and 37. Jasper decided to stand against Yellow Diamond to protect Pink Diamond's legacy note  and destroyed the clone Yellow Diamond sent to destroy the Crystal Gems.
    • Chapter 25 implies that Onion, because of his obsession with stealing the B-Team's safe and its riches, is something akin to a Sitcom Archnemesis for Peridot, Lapis and Jasper. When Jasper comes back to the barn and sees Lapis, Peridot and Connie Bound and Gagged, her first reaction is to ask if the "safe thieving little monsters" are at it again. Although we never learn how Onion's gang's previous attempt(s) went.
    • In a more lighthearted example, Chapter 47 has Garnet mention that Amethyst burned down the glass and metal greenhouse they were building for Beach City.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: The four surviving members of the Ruby Squad (minus Doc) are able to take Lapis, Peridot and Connie by surprise and capture them when they raid the Barn in Chapters 24 and 25.
  • Odd Friendship: Connie ends up getting along surprisingly well with Peridot, Lapis and even Jasper after some time.
  • Official Couple: Pearl and S/Pink Hair, confirmed in Chapter 47 "Stuck in an Elevator".
  • One-Hit-Point Wonder: The Gems from the Omega Colony are extremely fragile compared to normal Gems; according to Peridot, "a really bad bump could mean instant death for any of them."
  • Pet the Dog:
    • Even though she still misses the Power High she experienced while being Malachite, Jasper promised Lapis that she wouldn't fuse with her unless Lapis wants to.
    • Blue Diamond genuinely tries to be Nice to the Waiter when she interacts with her servants, as she believes that Pink Diamond was right to try to change the Diamonds' ways.
  • Red Herring: The third Arc begins with a confrontation between Lapis and Onion's gang, who tries to steal the B-Team's safe. Then, when Lapis and Peridot are captured by mysterious attackers, readers may assume that Onion striked again. They are not. It's the Ruby Squad.
  • Released to Elsewhere: In Chapter 28, it's heavily implied that, in Homeworld, this is the fate of the Gems who discover new powers the Diamonds don't want them to have.
  • Replacement Goldfish: Pink Hair admits she knows that Pearl first talked to her is because of her resemblance to Rose, and said if she had known it when they first met, she would've told Pearl to leave.
  • Rhino Rampage: Jasper has a pet rhinoceros named Stabber.
  • Sacrificial Lamb: Doc. The Bus Came Back, only for her to be a way to show the effects of Bridget's Corruption Ray. And to give the villainess a dog to kick.
  • Shout-Out:
    • The Nice Character, Mean Actor that Lapis and Peridot meet in chapter 29 could be seen as one to Jason Nesmith/Commander Taggart before his Character Development.
    • During her fight with Jasper in chapter 36, when the Quartz outsmarts her, Lapis utters the words "Clever girl." It's even a Shout-Out in-universe, as Lapis is aware that she's quoting a movie.
    • The entire Beach Fest arc could be seen as one to Jaws, since it deals with a monster attacking from the ocean, Mayor Dewey refusing to close the beach afterwards, and even has a quote from the film in Chapter 41. In Chapter 42, the corrupted Aquamarines even become a giant shark when they fuse.
    Lapis: We're going to need a bigger boat...
  • Similar Squad: Between the Crystal Gems and the "B-Team". We have the somewhat stoic leader and powerhouse of the team (Lapis and Garnet), the earthborn Quartz (Jasper and Amethyst), the brains of the team (Peridot and Pearl), and the kid who is the heart of the team just trying to make it work (Connie and Steven).
  • The Smart Gal: Peridot's role on the "B-Team".
  • Smug Super: Yellow Diamond (as well as the fake copy of herself she sends to fight the Crystal Gems) is shown to be one of the most powerful Gems of the universe. And she's not modest about it.
  • Spin-Off: It's getting one in The Little One, a series of one-shots focusing on the Omega Colony. It's co-written by the person who created Lapis "Little Lappy" Lazuli.
  • Sympathy for the Devil: Even if she's a Mad Scientist who gleefully kicked the dog several times, Connie can't help to feel sorry for Bridget as the latter, while on the verge of being defeated, starts to cry that White Diamond will abandon her if she fails and ends up corrupted by her own Corruption Beam. Of course, the saddest thing is probably that White Diamond never cared for her at all.
    Bridget: "Because if I fail this, White Diamond won't care for me anymore..."
  • Threatening Shark: The antagonists of the Beach Fest Arc end up fusing into a giant shark-like monster in Chapter 42.
  • Training from Hell: Jasper offers to train with Connie because, unlike the Crystal Gems, Jasper won't hold back on her. And she doesn't, though both enjoy the training.
  • Undying Loyalty:
    • Even though she made a Heel–Face Turn, Jasper continues to feel loyalty towards Pink Diamond. She keeps a pink diamond she found (under her pillow according to Lapis, which she cuddles while asleep as seen in the "Dreams and Nightmares" arc) and, during her boast to Bridget...
      Jasper: "This is Pink Diamond's planet! And if you threaten it, I'll powder you! So, I'm ordering you... Give. Up!"
    • It's even deconstructed in the prequel Uneasy Frenemies, during which Jasper is ready to protect a rampaging Shatter Machine because it might still remember Pink Diamond in its database. She completely breaks down when she realizes that it doesn't.
      • Deconstructed in Jasper's nightmare, where she betrayed the Crystal Gems and "B-Team" to Homeworld, essentially turning Earth over to Homeworld so that they would acknowledge Pink Diamond, including a holiday in her honor. Jasper is shown in the nightmare to have regrets toward her decision.
    • Bridget is a Peridot officer and scientist that used to work for White Diamond during the war against Rose Quartz and who was trapped inside Earth's crust after Homeworld's defeat. Thousands of years later, after freeing herself, she's still trying to accomplish her mission and return to her Diamond.
  • Villainous Underdog: Compared to the threats of Bridget and her machines or the Diamonds, the Ruby Squad is far less dangerous and its members are clearly outmatched against Jasper or the Crystal Gems. They compensate by never giving up, taking hostages and showing ingenuity (at least as far as a Ruby can). Chrysocolla's arrival turns the situation into a Mook Horror Show though.
  • Villainous Valor: Invoked by Jasper to insult Yellow Diamond and Blue Diamond. The Quartz points out in Chapter 37 that, at least, Pink Diamond was brave enough to face Rose Quartz by herself and White Diamond is still a conqueror who wouldn't be afraid to go to Earth to destroy itnote . On the other hand, Yellow and Blue are lazy cowards who prefer to send super-powered copies of themselves do the dirty work.
  • Virtue Is Weakness: Yellow Diamond is a firm believer of this trope. She believes that Pink Diamond died because she was too kind with her subjects, which ultimately resulted in them getting insubordinate when they stopped fearing her authority.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: The relationship between Jasper and the other two Homeworld Gems.
  • Would Hurt a Child: During Jasper's nightmare, the Homeworld soldiers straight-up shoot Sadie and Onion. It's also heavily implied something similar happened to Connie and Steven.
  • Your Approval Fills Me with Shame: Jasper is horrified when Eyeball, after seeing her fight as brutally as back when she worked for Homeworld, becomes convinced that Jasper's Heel–Face Turn is an act and that Jasper is still loyal to Yellow Diamond and is merely tricking the "B-Team" and the Crystal Gems.
  • You Have Failed Me: According to both Jasper and Yellow Diamond, White Diamond doesn't take failure kindly.

How well does it match the trope?
