"I see...that's good that the field's working, I was worried about that." Melody sighs and nods "Sadly that's going to happen no matter what we would be on, I think. But with some work I believe that we can restore the art if possible. I'm also relieved that the Shrine's still up" Chyrsocolla smiles and nods "I might have to ask you for some help. I'll admit though, i want to get a personal look before I decide how many Pearls it would take to get this thing going again" Melody started getting ideas in her head of how to fix up the place, it was tempting to put some of her own person...but that would ruin the majesty of the sea spire
Morion nodded for a personal look; but the Pearl-thing was heart warming. It was a long time ago, somebody thinked as a "Gem" openly, and talked about Pearls like a Gem should Servants and properties
"It was quite a time ago, the Galaxy Warp was sabotaged by Rosw Quartz's ilk... since the Crystal Killers robbed us from our freedom and made this planet our prison! So I guess, you are familiar with our new "home"'s customs and tecnology already, but if not... this is a Human communication device, called cellphone. Primitive thing, but usefull. It can transmit written messages and sound. Some of them have the ability to transmit even pictures or live images with a little camera built in them. Everybody have their personal number sequence, a code of soem sort. Like the personal frequency of the Gem communicators. Here is my "number". Just call me if you need anyting"
The Smoky Quartz smiled and wrote down his phone number to Melody
"Thank you..I'll try my best not to lose it" Melody smiled as she tucked the number in a pocket. She had to pick up one of these cellphones at some point, it hadn't occurred to her to actually pick one up. The Chyrsocolla knew in her mind that it wouldn't matter who helped her out at the Spire, she just wanted to see it back up. "I suppose if you ever need a musician at some point, try to find me" She smiled up at Morion "I'll play for just about any excuse, the craving to perform can never truly go away in my opinion. Quick question though, how many real...allies do you have? I know that little criminal empire has to be going well for you but I'm curious"
He asked, but then shook his head and drinked from the glass
"I am fortunate to call Her Majesty's, White Diamond's Grand Inquisitor, his excellency, the exalted Opalite and her companion, a Quartz, a Scout, called Carbide as allies."
Morion played with his dring, then sighed
"They are the only real and reliable Gem allies I have. Not counting you of course"
He smiled "The rest I know? Independent Gems or openly Rebels. Or insane monsters, failed experiment. I don't know how long you are on Earth... but this planet have a horrible effect on the weak Gem's mind. Drive them crazy. But to be honest, the insane Gems was insane to begin with...."
"I see...I'll admit, I've been fortunate enough to not run into any true monsters here on Earth" Melody sighed as she looked up at the taller Quartz "I can't quite remember how long I've been on Earth. I want to say at the bare minimum twenty years, possibly. My memory is a bit off in terms of that, it can blend together. But I've kept my sanity so far and I intend to keep it as long as I can. Hopefully in the off-chance I go a little bit insane I can keep most of it together" Melody smiles and looks out at the rest of the bar "I'm not quite sure where I should go next. Maybe the Spire wouldn't hurt to go ahead and get a start on what i need to do.."
The Smoky Quartz voice was bitter "When Rose Quartz sabotaged the Kindergartens... and other Homeworld facilities something was released! Something terrible. I don't know for sure, what was it, actually. Something from beyond the stars? Something that was found on Earth then studied? It was an artifical creation? A biological weapon? Hard to say. But this thing is like a disease! We are callig it: "Corruption"."
"My best theory is, it was Yellow Diamond's pet project, a weapon or modification. The Corruption is transforming the Gems... in to Monsters. Slowly, consuming both the mind, the soul, if we even have one, and the projected body. Transforming them. As far as we know, there are stages of this Corruption, but nothing certain. We even don't know how its spread! Airborn? By touch? With liquid light fluids? Kissing an infected could doom you? We. Do. Not. Know."
The Assassin sipped from his glass, the last sips
"And on the top of it, not every monster have claws and fangs, spikes and tallons... as I said, there are several insane experiments out there! Be careful Lady Chyrsocolla! And please for the love of the Diamonds, hire a bodyguard or two!"
"Interesting...I was not aware of this Corruption. Sounds like quite the problem" Chyrsocolla sighed as she listened to Morion explain the whole thing "I'll be fine, I believe I can handle myself without any bodyguards" She smirked and showed off her guitar before flipping it around, showing its side that operates as a battle ax. "Haven't you ever heard a sound attack before? I used to do time as a bard of sorts on Homeworld if they ever needed me. Also I should probably mention I might look..different, next time I see you. I only say that because my form tends to fluctuate with the music I play, different genders, different sizes, but I'll appear normal no matter what" Melody shrugged as she put the guitar up "Just passing that information on to you"
"Great, another unstable Gem... what a surprise. Is there any sane Gems on this misrable Diamond forsaken rock besides you and The High Inquisitor???"
The Voice's voice in Moiron head was sour and mordant The Smoky Quartz ignored it
"Interesting, but you are an artist, I guess it is natural to be influenced by your own art, music... after all, your songs have an effect without any supernatural help on the audience! Even human artist could influence their audience... so a Gem's music, endowed with the power? You must be a virtuoso!"
The Assassin smiled warmly "Thank you for the warning. If you ever change your mind about the protection, you know my number! Just call me, and I will send you some Human Quartzes to be your defenders!"
"That's one way to put it. And before you say anything, I'm not unstable. I was like this back on Homeworld and...well, never received a very good explanation as to why." Melody shrugged and smiled "I've embraced it though, I feel it's a good way to help my music be shown off to the audience" She giggled and nodded "I'll make sure to call you if I need any. May I ask what you mean by Human Quartzes? Is that the term you use for them or is there some sort of unknown experiment at the Kindergarten that I didn't hear about? It just seems odd for you to identify a group of gems as Humans yet...well, as gems"
"Ahh... I have instelled our social ranks in to my little organization"
The Smoky Quartz smiled and explained
"The humans who serves and tends everyday stuffs are called Pearls, the expendable, not to bright warriors called Rubies, and the big, strong "knights" are Quartzes. The scientists are the Peridots. And even have a couple of Bismuths, the builders and makers and providers of weapons!"
Morion was proud
"And me? I am their Diamond, the Boss. Actually, the boss of the Bosses. They have several human terms for it, Godfather, the capo di tutti capi, that means, the boss of the bosses. Don, Kingpin. But my alias, Senor M is my favorite."
The Assassin smiled cheerfully
"Nothing unkown and horrible experiments don't worry"
"I see...well I'm glad there aren't any unknown experiments going on at least in terms of human and gem hybrids" Melody breathed a sigh of relief "And that's admittedly kind of impressive, how you've managed to install ranks very similar to Homeworld. Mind I ask if you've explained to your humans who or...rather what you actually are? Just kinda curious to see if they've been serving you without any question or..well, whatever it is that's the example of loyalty in humans" She shrugged "If you're curious as to what I've done with humans, all I've ever had is just a few fans picked up here and there, nothing of the stalker variety but something a bit more...well, they'd listen if they wanted to" Melody smiled, a gleam in her eyes
"No, actually there are far worse experiments running around...."
The Smoky Quartz cold voice was bitter
"One of my greatest regret, I left one alive and gave her in a bubble to a traitor. I will correct that mistake sooner or later. Insane and unstable experiments hiding around us Lady Chyrsocolla..."
"Oh yeah, my Humans are well aware what I am. I revealed myself slowly, but now? they know everything! I have earned their loyality! And bought the rest..."
"My humans are well trained, preapred for the coming war, to fight and kill Gems. And their servitude will be revarded. I have promised the stars to my humans, a future, when the War will scorch their planet, and the Diamond's wrath descend upon the world in a fiery manner.... whenever it will be. Tomorrow or ten thousand years from now, I will honor our bargain, and I will bring them or their descendants to the stars. Funny, the worst of Humanity have done the most for their species survival.... now there is a lesson in that I think! Don't you agree?
"I see...I'll keep my eyes peeled, don't worry. Don't want to be taken out by any unstable ones" Chrysocolla sighed and shivered, remembering a few she had been introduced to on Homeworld before she came to Earth "I suppose that's good, and yes I agree. It is important to maintain trust of ANY servants that you have, no matter who or what species it is. Also, and this is my personal opinion, I hope that the Diamonds won't completely destroy this place. After all it was supposed to be a colonization planet so it would be nice if we can still stay on here and not turn this into a desolate desert or whatever the next planet environment is supposed to be." Melody looked a bit nervous at that prospect
"If there was any hope to keep some of this Planet's natural beauty and animals, and such... "
The Smoky Quartz shook his head
"...that hope was lost, when Rose Quartz started the Rebellion here and her ilk, the Crystal Gem killers sabotaged and destroyed most of what our Home accomplished here. Thank to them now the Lunar Sea Spire is in ruins, dangerous monsters are all around, and we have lost contact with the Gem Empire. The Gems are without leader, and order... Chaos rules Earth. When the Diamonds arrive what will they see? A planet lost in anarchy! Monsters and rebles... Personally, knowing Yellow Diamond's methods, her response will be to subject the planet to an orbital bombardment that will "glass" - that is, fuse the silica in the soil into glass - the planet and boil its oceans away. And I can't blame her! Our only hope is to establish a Colonial Court, restore order, so when the Empire arrives, the Diamond only will find order and loyal Gems."
"Ugh...maybe you're right" Melody pouted and sighed "It's a shame that Yellow Diamond always has to resort to the more..violent methods. Personally I've always preferred Blue Diamond, besides being a court member and all" She shrugged as she stood up "Well, in all honesty a Colonial Court doesn't sound like a bad idea, but my problem with that is it could take awhile to actually gather up gems to fill it up. And when we did get them together, how would we be able to keep order without the gems taking each other out? I mean I'd hope that the Homeworld gems would have some dignity but in the event someone decides to go against them, what do we do? It's best to plan this out before trying it out Morion"
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.
