No, no, no, no, no. This was all wrong. She knew she should have gone for Peridot instead of following Tiger's Eye. She should have persisted in giving help when the yellow gem needed it. Now Peridot was beyond her breaking point. Apache reeled back as the new gem stepped forward to defend her from the corrupted gem. There was only one thing to do. Apache sat down and satisfied her second power to the fullest. The negative aura was close enough to drain, and so she did. Consciously and filled with a dark happiness about it, she took as much corruption as needed from the surrounding area. It was both self-punishment and her way to fight back. After a few minutes, she lost interest in the new battle. She didn't see Tiger's Eye leave. All she knew was that eventually the battle would seem like it calmed itself down. And perhaps it did. The rest of the diminished aura of corruption dissipated, and absorption stopped.
Apache rubbed her gem, trying to soothe a migraine in it. The idiots, they made cracks in the ground again. And after she fixed it, too. With a reluctant click of a finger, marbles from the fountain sealed new cracks up. They seemed to have left her. Hmph. It was always, always her that was left behind. Oh, wait. The gem that recently arrived was still around. What was he saying? Static was too loud. Doesn't he know that? " I ̷c̕͠à̧ņ͟͝'̧̕ţ̡ ̡h́̕ea͘r̨ ͏y͢o̴̢u̴͞,̧ ̶͝y͘ơ͝u̷ ͢͞k͏̶n͟o̶w?͟" Looks like she had taken in more than she could handle. She could have at least fought back before. Now she had no idea how long it will take to break down this negativity.
Bloodstone seemed confused, he wasn't aware of the static that Apache could hear, but he could tell that something was off when all she said was she couldn't hear him. Octi sighed as he tried to think of a way to communicate with a deaf gem. Eventually though, he noticed that the ground was soft enough to some degree that words could be written in it. Octavian decided to use this to his advantage and summoned one of his chains out, practicing with it for a second to make sure that this could work before sitting down and writing out what he was trying to say. "I'm sorry that you can't hear me. I want to try to be friends or at the very least help you. Do you mind being allies?" He had somehow managed to write all of that out in the ground and he looked over at Apache to see if she could respond in any form or fashion

Oh dear. He wanted to be friends while she was under the effects of temporary corruption. What a stupid, hurtful choice. " Wh̡́a̧̧t̕?̢̧ ̶T҉̧h͏̸e̸̷n̶҉ ͜͏ş̨́t̴͘͜á̷̵b̸̕͞ ̕m̷͜͢e͜͠ ̵ìņ thè̡ ̨b́͘ą͞c̀͠k̕͠͠ ̸̧̕a̴n̨d͝͞ ̡sè̷̛n͝d̢ ̷me̡͢ ̴̕͢ǫ̀͜f̕f ̨t̡̡o̷ ҉͠H̢́ǫ͢m͝e҉̛w̷̛ǫrļ̵d͞͠ ̢̢i̧n҉͟ ̧͘a҉͜ ̢p͘a̶c͏͝k̴̶̢àg̴̨͞e͜?

On the ground, a sealing glass crack spiked up before settling again. It'd probably be best if she left the scene to let the negativity torment her somewhere else. Then again, she was not in the right state of mind to warp, let alone go searching for the troublesome Homeworld duo. They'd probably do something brash again, and get themselves poofed. Shattered, even. It'd hardly be her fault. In fact, it'd probably be more convenient that way.
He sighed, sensing that the gem was not in the best shape to be moving now. Octavian held a hand up to tell her to stay put before writing out in the ground "My name is Bloodstone, but you may call me Octavian. I had accidentally abandoned Tiger back at the Communication Hub and was trying to find her, that's why I came here. I was a soldier under Yellow Diamond and as of now do not work with the rebels or the Homeworld gems. I promise not to stab you in the back at all. I can be a friend." Octi sighed as he finished writing with his chain, turning back to Apache and hoping that she believed him. "I can help you, my power is quite beneficial, as my berserker mode does not allow me to poof." He added, hoping that helped

Apache narrowed her eyes at Octavian's offer despite subconsciously knowing that this gem was definitely being sincere. If this was a normal day, she'd accept the offer. But instead of attempting and failing to get her message through more gently again, Apache finally turned around to take a moment and survey the amount of energy she absorbed. She'd suffered worse from her attempts at healing fully corrupted gems before -and what a waste of effort that was- but the amount of energy she had right now could still definitely be considered a rather severe case. Looks like it could take a day or so to burn out the majority of the corruption provided that she didn't have any more unfortunate run-ins, then at least a week to fully dissolve every last bit of Peridot's corruption. Ooh, when they meet again she would definitely have to try and inflict some guilt.

After everything that had happened, Apache figured it was time to rest and recover. But somehow, she just couldn't put this incident to rest. The other gems didn't even tell her who the white gem is, despite the fact that they obviously seemed to know. It also wouldn't be good for a corrupted gem to be roaming around. On some level of thought, she was waiting for Octavian to go but offer her to come along, even.
Octavian sighs, wishing that it was easier to convince Apache to follow. He should...probably ask, in all honesty. He hummed as he pulled the chain out again and proceeded to write in the ground some more. "The white gem, I believe, is at the very least a crew member from the ship she crash-landed in. Long story there, I can explain at another point. I'm going to feel awful, however, if I leave you here by yourself. I understand that you might not be in the best shape but I just can't leave you here. I'm worried some gem with bad intentions might come by and hurt you. I can provide you sanctuary back in Beach City until your...static, goes away." Bloodstone hoped he was wording this right "I want to be your friend..will you come with me?"

It was true. She was vulnerable and needed rest. Despite the Kindergarten kind of being her retreat, it'd be crazy for her to walk around there without at least mostly recovering first no matter how tempting it was. Apache made a small, fed up face. "F͠i̡̡͜ņ̕e̡͘.̶̷ D͏on̷͘'̢̨͜t͘͡ e̕͢x̡͞͞p̡ęç͢͡t́ m͡e͡ ̸t̡͏͠o̢ ̴̀b̵e҉ ҉to͢o̢̡ ͘͟g͏͞r̡͢a̡t̴̛efu̸͝l ̶for ̷n͘o̕ẁ͢,̀͢ ̨̢th͜o͟͞ú̡͞gh͠.̵" Having regained a sense of direction, she began walking steadily towards the warp pad. The most she had come near a human dwelling before was the beaches nearby- she was never really keen on interacting or even coming near to the strange organic beings, but it looks like she had to now. And at such an inconvenient time too.
Octavian smiled, standing and walking back to the warp pad with Apache. "It's on the beaches, don't worry." He wrote before they got to far, reassuring her that they would not have to deal with too many humans, if any. The Bloodstone had taken pride in that his shack was sort of out of the way from where most humans would want to explore on the beach. Hopefully, Apache was perfectly ok with the mess that might be inside. He had not cleaned up in awhile and was not expecting to really bring someone home. As he followed to the warp pad, he took one last look at the scene of the fountain. Thanks to the damage fixing that Apache had done, it was like a battle had never happened...give or take a few scratches and cracks. Ah well, that could fix on it's own
Ruby?: I'm good Melody thanks. Anyone want to start a new thread?

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.
Orginal Opening Plot Here Thread That Changed Everything
Differances Between the Roleplay and the Show
*Thanks to Rose Quartz' message the Gems on Earth are entirely aware that the Homeworld Gems intend to wipe out the human race.
*The "corruption" is being treated like a virus due to lack of info about it on the show.
*Garnet, Pearl and Rose are assumed capture on Homeworld
*Garnet,Pearl and Rose broke the space warps to delay Homeworld
*Thanks to Roses Message gems now know what the Kindergarten was used for
