Hunter arrives at the docks after a long days work on what little he has of his ship. As he watches the sunset he pulls out his art book and begins drawing the scene in front of him. "This planet has so much natural beauty....But..." His hands kept drawing but he was envisioning something else. Upon looking back at his drawing he saw what he had drawn. It was the sunset over the ocean without water. As he looks at this starts to doubt what it meant to be a supporter of Blue Diamond. Then he remembered his mission and those other worlds he went to.
He felt a cold chill go up his spine. His mission just doomed the natural beauty of so many many planets. He just sits there staring at the picture almost as if he was a broken gem. "why?" He kept asking himself trying to find the answers to justify things. The deeper he thought the more confused and uncertain his actions were for the right reasons. He knew the Crystal Gems were fighting for the planet, but he doesn't want to betray the diamonds.
He lays back the drawing just sitting in his hands unsure what to think. He needed guidance, but he didn't know where to turn. Octavain would be the best option, but he was afraid of the answer.
Octavian had been looking for Hunter for about an hour now. He knew that he had gone out for awhile but he had no idea where. Eventually, he found Hunter sitting on the docks, watching the sun set for the day. As he walked up, he decided to shift into his female form, sitting down next to Hunter as his Octavia persona. She smiled and patted him on the shoulder as she looked at his art "That's a good drawing..you're good at that!" Octi beamed before sighing "Let me guess..you're thinking about whether you should stick to helping the Crystal Gems or the Diamonds, right? All I'll say is, go with what you think is best." She smiled, and was willing to listen
Hunter had sat back up before Octavian showed up, or should i say Octavia. He looks over at her. She could tell he was having issues with something. Sure enough she nails the issue on the head. "Yes." He looks out to the ocean. "The information you said about the Kindergartens. Its got me questioning if what I was doing was a good thing. those planets had a natural beauty to them....and I doomed them." He looks down at his picture he drew. "I doomed them to be nothing more than a barren wasteland. And the only life will be gems...I don't know what to think anymore. I want to help preserve the natural beauty of planets....but at the same time i don't want to betray the diamonds." He looks back at Octavia. "I cant tell what is best...The crystal gems or Blue Diamond. All these thoughts in my head just keep churning and churning....Its getting to me."
Octavia sighed as she listened to Hunter, sensing all of the confusion that was coming from him. "I know..and I don't blame you. Given what you like, it's natural for the confusion to be with you, given everything that's happened. She tried not to sound like an advocate for the Loyalists OR the Crystal Gems now "I have no idea if they truly were the one reason the planets turned into wastelands, but you can do something about the planet you and I are on right now. I mean for one, communication with Homeworld is hard right now! That's why I'm not worried about what Yellow Diamond could do to me" She smiled a little "I'm willing to do what I think is right"

Hunter sighs. Octavia's responce only added to the confusion. "I dont know...what to believe right now...i...i dont know if i can even stay local to the diamonds...or even neutral at this point. i...i just dont know." He looks over at her. "Comunications being down here doesn't help. If i can get my communication matrix i can send a burst message to home world, but there is no guarantee they will get it due to earth's gravity. I litteraly have to send the burst messages during warp this way the speed of the signal ignores most gravity fields. But even then. what do i put in the message. to try and have Homeworld know our situation.....or to give them the idea of preserving this world and others like it." He lays back and looks up at the sky.
"I see...you know, you do have a point. Homeworld only seemed to focus on conquering...they never seem to care much for beauty, do they?" She looked over at him "I'm not trying to say you should take a side, but I think you have a good idea because you have a gift. Your art is some of the best I've seen..well, ever! I can help you try to convince the Diamonds that there is beauty in things such as this. Yes I suppose I'm still not a huge fan of the whole conquering thing, but still! We could convince them to preserve things, or build a Kindergarten where things...won't get destroyed. I'm sorry if Im not helping by the way..I'm trying my best" She looked down at the water

Hunter falls silent. Octavia's words were ones he was needing to hear. but he was unsure what the next step should be. He looks over at Octavia and sees her looking at the ocean. "I'm sure if i get all the crystal gems and Loyalists here to agree on preserving natural beauty of this world. Then maybe we can have a change of policy. Conquer only dead uninhabited worlds....surely they can agree to that." He Looks out to the rising moon. "There are many worlds i have met that are dead that are perfect for colonizing." He looks over at Octavia. "Do you think that will work? if we get both sides to agree on this as well as the diamonds?"
"It's possible to do that, yes. We could tell them to build the Kindergartens on uninhabited worlds, just cause...there's no real way to make them stop siphoning life energy, unfortunately" Octavia smiled up at Hunter "I have no idea how we could get the crystal gems and Loyalists to agree on that though. I mean who would we ask to meet?" She was curious but smiled over at him "I'm sure we could convince the Diamonds to use the worlds you've found for colonizing. If nothing else, I believe that you have a very good idea and it's worth saving." Octi giggled and smiled happily "You're a good gem Hunter, I know it." She sighed and looked out at the moon
Hunter sighs and thinks for abit. "Your neutral on all of this right...surely you have made some very influential allies on both sides. maybe have them both come for a neutral meeting to discuss this idea. perhaps them we can start sowing seeds of change." He stands up and streches. "Come on its late. We need to return home before it gets to dark to even see the house." He offers his hand to help Octavia up.Once she was on her feet he led the way back to the house. "SO you think we can try to get them to a meeting where we can atleast talk to both sides?" He looks over at Octavia wondering what the answer was.
"I can try...unfortunately the only Crystal Gem that I know is Swan and..I have no idea how willing he is to work with us again after what happened with Rubellite. I think he blamed me for her getting away" She sighed and stood up, smiling at Hunter as they made their way back to the house "I know a bunch of independent and loyalist gems though, so at the very least we would be able to set something up without much of a problem. Now one question, where would we even set it up in the first place? And how would we convicnce the gems to come without thinking it was a trap set by the other side? Don't want to risk anything.."
Hunter shakes his head. "I am unsure. these gems have been at war for so long. i can see why this would be an issue. we would have to guarantee an Armastace. atleast for the meeting. But how do we do it? do you have atleast 1 person on each side that can atleast show up to a meeting with us to discuss it without having the other side there. to see what they have in mind." He looks ahead just as he runs into a light pole. "Ow." He rubs his face in embarrasment as they made there way out of town. "now where would be a good place to hold these meetings. someplace neutral this way no one side has an advantage."
"Hm...well.." Octavia sighed as she tried to think "I suppose Carbide and Pallasite could be two of the gems for the loyalists, I mean those two haven't really to discuss it. Then there's Variscite..he's technically one of the crystal gems. As for the loyalists, I'm not sure..I mean Morion refuses to come near Beach City." She laughed softly when Hunter ran into the pole, knowing that he didn't mean to do that, of course. "Perhaps we could hold the meetings at the shack? I mean even then, it's close to Beach City but I feel like even the loyalists that are nervous about coming to this place would be ok with dropping by. That's not too bad, is it?"

Hunter nods. "Its a start i guess. The only way we can know for sure is to have a talk with them." He looks over at the shop at his still broken ship. "I really need that thing to connect to those satellites. Part hunting is very difficult without knowing where to look." He shakes his head. "a job for another day. we need to atleast see if they are intrested in meeting with us first." Upon arriving at the house Hunter opened the door and let Octavia in first. "After you." Once they were inside Hunter walks to the spare bedroom that was his room. Though there was alot of stuff stored in there atleast the bed was a soft place for him to think.
"Very true, and that could take awhile, trying to find everyone." She smiled as she nodded in agreement "The satellite stuff could take awhile, maybe if I went through the local junkyard I could find the parts for you." Octavia walked in and sighed, walking upstairs to her bedroom. She couldn't believe that they were actually going to try this. Would the gems she knew even agree to this? I mean asking loyalists and crystal gems, or at least those who would sympathize with them, would take a lot of time to begin with. What if they just decided to kill each other on sight? True, the war would be somewhat over but it would just...ugh...this was harder than she thought
[Sorry for just dropping by with one post, hope its not a problem (and that the thread is after the Project M Licking wounds thread ^^ ) ]
Bloodstone had a visitor Just a "mailman", tho' a columbian one, familiar face, the Gem seen him before He came with a motorcycle, a jetblack marauder The guy brought an envelope - and after Bloodstone took it, the this little columbian courier pigeon flew away - , a letter for Hunter; the envelope was sealed with a wax seal, with an M The letter was the follwing:
My dear Hunter,
It`s been a while since I`ve written a letter. To be honest, I don`t even remember how to do it anymore. I feel a bit embarrassed as I start this letter, because I`m afraid you may interpret my words in a way they weren`t meant to, different to what I really would like to express; so I beg of you to read it with a great deal of care and attention... I’m going to begin by saying something very simple and true, in which you probably haven’t thought of: you are stronger than you think, and smarter than you show the world, and that’s why I’m here, doing the noble job of showing you how special you are. I suddenly caught myself thinking about you... you are always so quite, so alone, like a little abandoned animal, lost in the streets and afraid to cross the road! I don`t know why, but I felt like asking: are you truly happy? You are always so reserved and those little eyes of yours seem to constantly bear a bit of sadness... I hope you don`t feel invaded by my curiosity and observations. Are you always this way or are you just feeling a bit down? I have been feeling a bit lonely myself, you know... nothing serious, really, but it`s always great to have someone close by you can talk to and exchange thoughts and opinions or to just be together... One of these days, I went out unwary and suffered the cold of an icy night. When I got back my mountain home, an open window letting in the piercing wind made me feel so lonely that it occurred to me that I should while away these cold nights along... maybe with you. I don`t believe you are going to doubt or question what you are reading now, because we`ve always been honest with each other. This letter is, in fact, an invitation for you to get to know me better. And you can be sure that you will also be able to find in me some rare virtues...
Melody: Hi! Yep, that is true
Dec 30, 2019 10:51:32 GMT
Melody: honestly the site is not very active, but I try to make sure that every new player is doing okay
Dec 30, 2019 10:52:55 GMT
Melody: so feel free to message me here or on the discord if Njrk (the owner) is not answering
Dec 30, 2019 10:53:30 GMT
Melody: Also, you have got a decent app Chatoyant. I don't think you will have problems with being accepted. I am only not sure about your weapon, in the show it was very op, Njrk will have to take a closer look
Dec 30, 2019 11:07:42 GMT
Melody: It might also be good to state if you made the art for your Aquamarine or not
Dec 30, 2019 11:09:33 GMT
Fulgurite: Always wonderful to see new users. The shoutbox is still somewhat in use but the more reliable chat is the discord channel. But either way, welcome to the site.
Dec 30, 2019 11:29:49 GMT
Chatoyant Aquamarine: Thank you! Yes, that's the thing I'm still unsure about as well. I tried looking into other tractor beam and levitation based abilities that have been approved on this site and modeled and tried to nerf mine based on those. Will have to see!
Dec 30, 2019 12:58:23 GMT
Chatoyant Aquamarine: Ah, and that's true. The art's mine, could go edit that into the app before I forget. x)
Dec 30, 2019 12:59:32 GMT
Melody: I think it is good. Njrk already said it in chatbox that he is pretty busy, but I will try to inform him on discord about your app
Dec 30, 2019 13:08:05 GMT
Melody: I have got an idea. Njrk in some threads suggests that abilities/weapons could have a cooldown. It could be a nice way to nerf your weapon, but not too much. For example, maybe after using it in 2 posts it will shut down on its own for one post?
Dec 30, 2019 13:15:38 GMT
Melody: it is just a suggestion, I really don't know what Njrk will say about it
Dec 30, 2019 13:16:43 GMT
Melody: time measures, weight and stuff like that are nice, but they don't always transfer well into the roleplay. Time is especially a tricky part, that is why we usually use posts instead
Dec 30, 2019 13:20:04 GMT
Chatoyant Aquamarine: Understandable that people would be busy around this time of the year, I don't mind if I have to wait a little. A cooldown could be a good idea if it's deemed that the weapon could use a little more nerfing. I'll keep that in mind!
Dec 30, 2019 13:31:27 GMT
njrk97: Ill try and look at it tomorrow, but yeah the gem wand presents some issues, its sorta why i avoided the more modern gem tech on the site IE widespread Destablizers. Like they exist but since Pink is not Dead the Resource issues and tech focus of Era 2
Dec 31, 2019 1:08:37 GMT
njrk97: has not become that prevalent.
Dec 31, 2019 1:08:54 GMT
Chatoyant Aquamarine: I'll try to make some adjustments beforehand. I’ll let the original description stay as it is so you can read it but I’ll send some notes to you so that you don’t have to start from a scratch.

Flurry: I knew that was coming

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
