She stared at Alexandrite for a few seconds before raising an eyebrow, her tone full of confidence. "No it won't. Unless they're common thugs with the mental faculties of humans they won't have a reason to attack me! I'm not reenabling the facilities I mentioned! I'm just studying them, and in the case of the Kindergartens, install some method of perimeter security system to keep unwanted wild animals and nosey little humans out." she explained with a shrug. "You have my word, the word of a Hematite, that I will NOT attempt to restore communication or travel between Earth and Homeworld, okay? Will that suffice? Does that satisfy? Besides, I couldn't even if that was my goal; I'm not an engineer, I'm just an operator."
(Not pleased with having to use multiple accounts for this.)
"Its less about what your proper intentions are and more about what they could be perceived as being. Some gems may have a bit more of a..." He inhaled sharply through his teeth "Poof first, ask question later mentality when they see gems running around those areas. Not to mention the corrupted gems that wander around those areas,especially the Kindergartens." He added "but' He started walking again "Your mind is set so there is not much point in idling around" The breeze blew softly through the air,dancing of the sand and ascending into the air and beyond. Alex paused once again,before continuing along talking quietly "I have a hunch Hematite that we may no longer be alone, so it is best to move quickly" His right hand was hanging slightly open, just in case his hunch was confirmed. There had been something in the winds, it was hard to explain, but it didn't feel quite right. He really did hope he wouldn't have to fight as he still wasn't quite at 100%, and going into a fight while fatigued could potentially slow down his movements.
((I didn't want to outright call out Mira unless you actually give me permission to do it Mira.So do i have permission to call out her on her location to progress this,or do you want to make the first move Satin Spar?))
((I think now would be a good time to establish some spatial mapping The red circle is the general area i assume we and the docks are at,since that map does not establish where the docks are, and the arrow is where Alex and Hema are heading. Just to give a better idea of the geography around us
The account swapping is a necessary evil unfortunately, you can use the person symbol down the bottom right side to do it quicker if the accounts are linked to the same Email. It is to stop people getting free posts (and power) for several character while only actually Rping as the one.
If it wasn't already Evident the double brackets (()) mean i'm talking or discussion stuff Out of character, my actual RPing section though still reaches the 120 word minimum. Plus we shouldn't talk to much OOC in the threads, i just felt it was worth addressing what i thought was some important info))
"So... so then the rebels really are just murderous thugs bent on inflicting untold and unnecessary suffering upon all that they look upon?" she immediately questions.
(Beach City's layout always confused me. Sorry for taking so long to make this reply; I've been waiting for Satin to make an appearance, but I guess that's not going to happen as it's been half a bloody week since your post with no sign of a response coming. I also apologize for the short post here; I just really have so very little to say left that wouldn't be mindless drivel and unseemly literacy padding for the sake of filling an arbitrary quota of minimum words. You might notice I've used a lot of extra words just to make this point. If we're good to move into the Temple board, do let me know.)
(I'll allow you to discover me, since it'll happen sooner or later. Plus this mapping stuff is confusing me, unless it's for hermatite's benefit, then I just confused myself for no reason.)
Mira seemed interested in these two. The gem that was talking distastefully about the crystal gems seemed to be a homeworld gem, but the other didn't reveal which alignment he was affiliated with. She wasn't going to take any chances, also considering that he didn't look like much. She put on angered experessioas her form shifted. When she was finished, it was her monsterous form. A large spider. Time to make a move.
She climbed onto the boat she was hiding behind and onto it's deck. She then leaped off of it right in front of the two of them. She let out an ear splitting screech and it seemed that someone was gonna get hurt. Or become a delicious meal.
((Okay time to back down on these OOC posts, the rule still stands that you need 120 words in character, ill let it slide this time but really their was plenty you could do to easily reach the quota and still have it be character relevant. Delve into your character own thoughts or response to the other parts of Alexandrite's sentences and what not.)
"Think of it from the perspective of them" He shot back "Fighting against a empire that could blink and have this entire planet destroyed. It makes sense they would really not want to take ris-" Alex though was rather unceremoniously cut off by the arrival of another gem. Alexandrite had stumbled back slightly as he peered at the corrupted gem "and this is why-" The rest of his sentence was drowned out by the screech of the corrupted spider gem.
A annoyed expression spread across his face, Alex was still fatigued,his movements would be delayed and he wasn't even sure how powerful his powers would be in his weakened state, not to mention the toll it make take on him if he pushed himself to far. Even worse was that he still didn't have a consistent way to summoning his own weapon. So despite his annoyance at the other gem monster showing up, flight would be the best option in this current situation,but where could they really run to?
"Please tell me you have some sort of amazing power that can get rid of this" He asked, a hint of annoyance and desperation in his voice "If not we may want to Run"
There were a lot of feelings running through Hematite at this juncture. Mounting worry, calculatedly tempered caution, mild giddiness... but of all the feelings she feeled in her feely bits, one of the least safe won out in the end. Even as she ducked behind Alexandrite with all due haste and let out a frightened squeal, her face curled up into an almost manic grin of anticipation and excitement, eyes wide and studious. Perched behind her bodyguard, she gave a gasp. "Look! I think it's a Corrupted gem! This is an excellent opportunity; it looks weak enough to be subdued without a trained team of expert handlers! Quickly, Alexandrite; engage the gem in combat and defeat it! Be sure not to damage its core, however! I'm going to bubble that so that it can be contained indefinitely until I have devised a suitable, secure, controlled environment to release and study it in!"
It takes a few seconds for her to recognize what Alexandrite said and she blinks. "Wait, run? Why would we run? It's dangerous, certainly, but it's nothing a go-getter like yourself can't handle, yes?" she winks, giving him a playful elbow to the side and a knowing smile.
Mira was ready to have the two gems as a meal, and the first to be attacked would be hermatite. She began to create the silk through her abdomen, and began manifesting a web between the dock. It was behind the two, since the boats were the only connecting points. Once it was finished, the corrupted gem crawled towards hermatite. She then went for a grab. If this were to happen, she'd stick him into the web and easy his physical form and spit the gem out. Either way, these two were going to become her lunch. These two gems didn't seem threatening or crystal gems, but in this form she didn't care. All she knew in this form was to silk, web, stick, eat, repeat. Nothing more, nothing less.
"Wait, run? Why would we run? It's dangerous, certainly, but it's nothing a go-getter like yourself can't handle, yes?"
"Normally" He began but stopped himself as the corrupted monster created a web behind them, instinctively he held his arm out in front of Hematite and began slowly stepping backwards "Wait a minute" He said quietly "It cornered-" The creature lunged towards them. Cornered like this there was only two places to really go,over or under. Alexandrite made the choice in a second and he lashed out to try and grab Hematite arm. Hopefully this would make contact. Then he would slide forward legs first under the spiders torso and legs. A small burst of wind propelling them to the other side to safety.
"This isn't a normal corrupted gem it seems" He whispered as he stood back up, now with sand stains and marks over his jacket "They're not smart enough to set traps like that, which means..." He trailed off.
Hematite finds herself quickly dragged facefirst onto the ground, and picks herself up with a groan, rubbing her precious face. "... not corrupted?" she mumbles. "Then it's not my problem. Hold it off for me! I have a plan!" she declares, pulling herself to her feet and going into a sprint for the temple, leaving Alexandrite and the monstrous entity behind.
It really wasn't her problem; a corrupted gem is a subject of potential important study for her, especially if her secret theory about it holds water, but a perfectly sentient gem in a monstrous form? A fatal distraction at best, and she was not going to lose time and safety just to get into a brawl with a terrifying thug in a spider costume.
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.
