It had been a long while since Demetry had stepped foot in the Crystal Temple. The large structure from the exterior was beautiful. It had been ages since he had seen Homeworld proper; but, seeing a bit of home now and then was nice. The way the light hit the giant carved structures was brilliant. The cascading shadows, the negative space... it was stunning. He hadn't seen the Crystal Gems for some time... the tenuous situation him and his Lady Tabitha were in didn't allow him for familiarity. He and his Lady always forced to speak through proxy. The leader of the gems was as much a mystery as too whom actually made up their ranks.
But, he knew well that he had to come this day as Lady Tabitha wished to advance her participation in the rebellion. For her safety Demetry insisted that she stay behind for the time and remain in mental contact. With individuals like the Morion, and Inquisitor Opalite about they would be hard pressed to do much without there notice. If someone was to be caught and branded a traitor... Demetry rather it be him.
He wore haphazard amounts of human clothes beyond his usual and made way into the temple proper with haste. Once inside he discarded most of what he wore and rolled his neck. He knew the gems may question him or attack him since he still wore his blend of human apparel and his old Yellow Diamond Academy Uniform. He would wait in the entrance area of the temple to be greeted or met with opposition. Either way he stood in a manner of non-aggression with palms visible and thoughtful expression.

There wasn't any immediate activity within the temple, but it didn't seem to be abandoned either. The floors were tracked with relatively fresh footprints indicated by bits of sand scattered here and there, some of them wet and holding the shape of bare feet or boots.
Much deeper within the Temple, Meta noted the energy-signature of the new arrival. The first unfamiliar presence of the day. Meta tapped the Temple's inner workings to get a view of the newcomer, as she very often did with unfamiliar Gems. Generally, she would have merely taken a passing glance, perhaps appraised the individual for a few moments if the fancy struck her, and then moved on with her day.
But what she saw stopped her. A Homeworld uniform? Seemingly mixed with human clothes? The Gem was one of several things. An extremely brave but stupid agent of Homeworld who was open to alien cultures, an agent of Homeworld who made extremely poor disguises.... Or... Well.... Meta supposed she could see when she got there.
The tall green-and-blue Gem stood, dropped downwards into the Burning Room, and then exited into the lobby of the Temple.
"Are in the Temple of the Crystal Gems, wearing the apparel of our enemies. What is your purpose?"
Demetry had wandered a bit further in and crouched running his hand across the remnants of sand. He would pick up a bit of a broken seashell turning it over a couple times and placing it back on the ground. He was able to tell there had been some thorough fare in the area; but, nothing to tell him as to when. Needless to say when a rather tall gem appeared before him pointing with authority he couldn't help but smirk. It wasn't an insulting expression by any means... but, rather a charming one.
On closer inspection of Demetry you would be able to notice a few things. For starters the symbolism on his academy uniform showed he was part of an elite specialized class. And, perhaps slightly more disturbing his gem was not normal. His gem seems to be bastardized by possibly Peridot science. It was at one point a Jasper gem... or, at least meant to be.
"Good evening," he does not lower his gaze from you.. clearly not underestimating you, or so prideful to believe a Crystal Gem wouldn't warrant his full attention. "My name is Demetry." clearly a taken name, not common for Homeworlders. "I am what is called a Owhyee Jasper. Facet 3EE5 Cut 001." and if you are knowledgeable of such things his cut would describe himself to be the first of his type.
"I come to seek an audience with the Crystal Gems on behalf of M'Lady Musgravite. I do wish to discuss such matters not on your doorstep and humbly request entry. I am willing to comply to any means of restriction to obtain the Crystal Gems trust in this matter." In truth he was a Crystal Gem; but, in case of prying eyes it was best to be a loyalist in all regard. Even to the Crystal Gems who need not be aware of his alignment.

Meta noted the Gem's human-like initial greeting and name with curiosity that manifested externally only as a very slight tilting of her head. This wasn't the first Gem to use a human monitor and style of speaking she'd met. A new trend? Meta could not recall Gems doing this on any other planet she'd been to. Interesting. A new trend, perhaps.
"Greetings... Demetry. I am Meta Autunite. And if you came in search of an audience with the Crystal Gems, you have it. I am the Crystal Gem's acting regent, in the absense of Garnet, Rose Quartz, and other senior members."
"Enter, and speak of what you will. You have my ear. Others may join us shortly, if they are nearby."
Demetry nods and seemed happy he wouldn't be shackled. But, that may still yet come to pass as perhaps this gem was being a tad bit too trusting. Either way it was not his place to question another, especially the acting regent for an organization he was part of. "Very well, I appreciate the welcome. ANd, happy welcome others."
Demetry entered the building and paused a moment. Feeling a bit more secure in speaking openly he turned to Meta "Ohh before I forget as me and Lady Musgravite... don't have the facilities to store these with confidence." Demetry reached into his bag that he carried at his side like a satchel and revealed two rather large gem's bubbled in a yellow and black bubble respectively. "These are two rather large corrupted that I would dare classify as some of the strongest I have seen since the fall of the kindergarten. They would be best kept here."
He waited to see if she would take them and would fallow her lead to the best area to talk as this was her home, not his.
Flying over the ocean the young Alexandrite was gracefully heading towards the crystal temple. Embracing one of the few opportunities he had his wings he had simply been gliding and flying around the area, finding many high points to rest along the way. Finally though he had decided to return to the temple. His timing had been impeccable of course as he just saw the familiar silhouette of Meta and another gem move into the burning room. His wings folded up as he began whizzing towards the entryway only splaying back out a short distance away to act like a parachute and slow his movement. His landing was somewhat rough as he took a few overbalanced steps but managed to correct himself before his face had properly become acquainted with the ground. By this time though he had stumbled into the doorway of the temple and could easily note that they were in the burning room.
He had managed to hear the back end of the conversation "-arge corrupted that I would dare classify as some of the strongest I have seen since the fall of the kindergarten. They would be best kept here."
Alexandrite was in somewhat lighter spirits then usual and instead of making his way around quietly he simply spoke "If they are as powerful as you claim then perhaps some extra precautions are in order?" He explained, as his wings folded down to allow him to step through the doorway properly. The light outside bounced off his multicoloured wings to cause a stained glass like lighting effect on the floor in front of him. As he fully entered the room though this was drowned out by the light of the burning pit, said light also causing his chest gem and his two concealed back gems to shift in colour to a shade of pinkish red instead of their mix of greens.
He took a few steps towards the mysterious gem indicating towards the two bubbled gems in his container, in reference to what he just said.
This Roleplay is a prequel to Steven Universe to an extent with some slight retconing and its own progression to the story that will turn out differently to how stuff plays out in the show.Thanks to the message by Rose Quartz several gems are rising up to protect Earth and have labelled themselves as the Crystal Gems. Others on earth are remaining aligned to Homeworld though despite the isolation of Earth from Homeworld
All gems on earth are still stranded, the communication hub is still offline and all the space warps are shattered, it has now been revealed that this is the work of Rose Quartz and her small group known as the Crystal gems. They have rebelled against Homeworld and have chosen to protect the Earth (Trapping themselves on Homeworld to keep the warps down).
Now both sides are fighting among themselves along with fighting against the 'Corruption' a virus is infecting many gems turning most of them into mindless monsters, but those with a stronger will seem to becoming something more sinister.
The Game has changed now. The question has finally been posed, are you against Homeworld or allied with them. Or do you have your own agenda that may or may not been assisted by the ‘Corruption’. Regardless the seeds have been placed down and although it is only the beginning the fight for or against Earth and the corruption has begun. The choice is yours for how it is shaped on the Original Steven Universe Roleplay Site.
