The smoky Quartz bowed after the dance with a bit sad smile
"Nothing original, nothing that I made... just an imitator, nothing more. I am lack of your creative spark M'lady... I couldn't wrote a song if my life would depends on it. Tried. Failed. I am just a soulless rock... can't create... just destory..."
Morion avoided the look of Melody
"You are special... like our Diamonds. full of life, full of potential! Vibrant, beatuful! Strong! Inspiring! Your songs are original, unique... the expression of your mind, soul and spirit! You are brilliant, dazzling, radiand and shinging light! Dancing fire, powerful force! Me? Im am just smoke and darkness... nothing... just an echo.
"Oh I'm sure that's not true..everything has a creative spark in them. It just takes work to find it in some gems, depending on what it is." She sighs and walks over, hugging Morion. Melody couldn't help but blush and smile at Morions compliments. "You don't have to say that...I am nothing super special. After all, any gem can sing." She shrugged before spinning a little and smiling "Life is one big song my friend, it is up to us to decide how we write it and how good of a performance we put on. I intend on making myself the star no matter what it takes." Melody sighed happily and blushed "Apologies if I ever get carried away"
Morion smiled, but was a bit bitter Then shook his head
"No need to apoligize..."
Te Smoky Quartz almost laughed Almost If they was still in the hug, he just pushed the player's button on the bike (iff not, then got is guitar too and sit in the reflector light, "on the stage") With Meoldy it was easy to communicte with songs... with stolen words And music filled the night again
"What did I ever do to you That you should treat me this way? Is it really such a crime For an angel to speak his mind? Anytime I'll try to shed some light If I were a big boy I wouldn't cry But since I'm not a big boy I'll have to cry
What did I ever do so wrong That you should cast me from grace Though I love to rule in Hell here How I miss the taste of Heaven Its soft and cool embrace If I were a big boy I wouldn't cry But since I'm not a big boy I'll have to close my eyes And picture what it's like
I'm just like you I'm made by He Despised by they I'm almost me I'm nearly human Look at me I'm almost a human being
I'm just like you I'm made by He Despised by they I'm almost me I'm nearly human Pity me I'm almost a human being
I still remember your light And it was streaming down And burning out my eyes If I were a big boy I wouldn't cry But since I'm not a big boy I'll have to close my eyes And picture what it's like
I'm just like you I'm made by He Despised by they I'm almost me I'm nearly human Look at me I'm almost a human being
These tears are real I'm jealousy I'm spite and hate To the core I'm mean I'm nearly human Look at me I'm almost a human being
I'm just like you Better than He To Hell with they I'm almost me I'm nearly human Pity me I'm almost a human being
Don't touch me, oh I couldn't bear the thought of it, now Don't touch me, oh I couldn't bear the strain Don't touch me, oh I couldn't bear the thought of it, now Touch me Touch me Touch me Don't touch me Touch me Touch me..."
Melody nodded and smiled when she heard Morions new song. The Chyrsocolla sighed as the Smokey Quartz soon finished singing. "So tell me, what should we do now?" She looked up at him, curious. The two of them had been out here for awhile now but at the same time no one to her knowledge was looking for them. "Tell me, how many Homeworld gems do you know of? I'm curious as to how many potential allies there might be on this planet. I'm not saying I'm afraid of the Crystal gems but I'm wondering if there's someone I can work with. " Melody picked up her guitar and started brushing it off, the cool night air putting some dew on the grass and making her instrument dirty
"Well, we could watch the dawn... from here, the rising Sun is quite beautiful! After that I planned to go home... I have a master chef, and his breakfasts are simply marvelous! And we could find you a room in my Mansion... you can stay untill you found a home of your own! It would be a honor to have you as a gueast Lady Chyrsocolla... Melody..."
The Smoky Quartz smiled, but then sighed sadly
"I have met several Gems. The most important was of course Her Majesty's, White Diamond's Grand Inquisitor, his excellency, the exalted Opalite. And his companion, an experimental Gem, a scout called Carbide. Then there was Lady Musgravite, or Lady Thabitha she liked to call herself and her bodyguard, my beloved Demetry, he was a Jasper experiment... they... they disappeared. The Crystal Gems cought them and possibly killed them. Or bubbled. I don't know for sure. Another "killer Gem", a Spiderweb Jasper, Spider... she disappeared too. Again, the victim of the Rebels, I presume. Another Gem I have met and disappeared is Olivine. She was an... observer. She is no longer with us, I'm afraid, same fate as the others. Crystal Gems. I've met a a few Gem on the beach, a confused Jasper, Bumblebee I think, serving under Yellow Diamond, and a Trinitite... and a delicate little grey Gem, I don't know her kind. Then... Oh, and the last Gem that visited me in my base in Columbia.... Andradite, that little green lad is still there in his bubble. Tried to take something from that ancient colony ship that I have claimed, but the self deffense system activated... And there is that morderous insane vigilante, the hero, Swan... Starlight Swan! I think he is a Quartz, a Jasper. But I'm not sure. She is a Crystal Gem hero, that tried to kill me... and she actually consider Beach City as her domain"
"And then, Insane Gems all around! First there is that Independent Bloodstone Jasper, he is an Experiment, he is a bit... well he is a dual-gem. Octavian and his female persona Octavia. Bloodstone insists, they are one and the same, but It seemed to me, the male and female personas have different views, feelings... I think I've broke his.. her heart. It wasn't intentional and I haven't seen Bloodstone since that night. But he do have a good heart... and I miss him. A bit... His friend is Hunter. He is a Blue Zoisite. From Blue Diamond's court, but Bloodstone poisoned his mind with his independent ideas... When my humans tried to activate the Kindergarten, the side effects attracted many Gems. Hunter and Bloodstone... and finally Yellow Peridot arrived too! First I was happy, finally a Peridot! The key to the Gem-tehcnology and the vitory in this war! But realized, she wasn't a technican at all... just another victim of Yellow Diamond's experiments. Like Bloodstone. But while Bloodstone could turn on and off his Berserker "mode" and a "good" Gem, Yellow Peridot was insane, consumed by her other "half", called Rubellite, a vicious monster. She and Bloodstone attacked each other... or more accurately, Yellow Period tried to murder Bloodstone and Hunter. I had to gave the order and my Humans gunned them down, untill they poofed. I gave their Gemstones to Hunter. Bloodstone is free. I don't know what happened Yellow Peridot/Rubellite... but she killed several of my Humans, so the their orders are: shoot and kill on sight if they ever see her again! She is a dangerous monster... A several weeks ago I have met Zerul. And Sketh. He is, as you know, is a dual Gem, like Yellow Peridot or Bloodstone, but I think he is amnesiac. I had to explain him the Gem physiology, social order, powers, Warp Pads... He warped away, I don't know where he is, but his Sketh persona is violent and destructive, according to Zerul himself... Oh and I had the misfortune to meet Lady Obsidian, a scientist. Our meeting was brief, but I think she is not completly sane either..."
The Smoky Quartz shook his head
"You see, all of my acquaintances are either dead, disappeared... or insane. "
Morion smile and voice was bitter, a bit frustrated "All of these Gems... only two of them was somewhat Loyal. Not counting Yellow Peridot, she said she was a loyalist but... too erratic, too insane, too dangerous... the two of them was Her Majesty's, White Diamond's Grand Inquisitor, his excellency, the exalted Opalite, but he is disappeared too to be honest... and the other? Lady Obsidian. But she is more like a fourth side in this conflict, a one-Gem-side. Her side. Loyal but only because at the moment this is what serves her interests... But we are allies. Kind of..."
Morion leaned back, watched the star filled sky Then closed his eyes with a sigh "It is awfully lonely on Earth... we are Moiron... and we are alone."
"I see...I'm sorry about all of that." She sighed and looked over at Morion "In all honesty though, I can't say I'm surprised. Gems tend to go as they please in situations like this. It's entirely possible that the ones who disappeared are still alive. After all, remember Earth is a large planet. They could be anywhere." Melody sighs and hugs Morion "At the very least, you can have me as a friend. I don't intend on disappearing or being killed any time soon anyway." She giggled and smiled "Let's stay here and watch the sun rise. After that I suppose I don't mind heading over to your mansion, it sounds like it could be a fun time anyway!"
The hug was an unexpected but pleasant surprise Morion almost gave a kiss in Meoldy's hair reflexively, when she hugged him But stopped himself in time^^
"Yes, you are right, Earth is a big planet... but... I am afraid, they are gone. All of them were strong and respectable Gems, trustworthy... not some pitty Pearls! They would never disappear without a word or warning Lady Chyrsocolla!"
The Smoky Quartz shook his head Then smiled a bit
"I am glad you are not planning to disappear or die M'lady... Tho' I must admit, in your case, such thing would be acceptable, and logical if you were in danger..."
"Lets watch the sunrise... then off to the Mnsion on my trusty steed!"
"Fine..,I understand. I hope you realize that a lady like myself can handle any fights that come my way. After all, a singer has to deal with rowdy fans somehow, right?" Melody giggled and smiled as she sighed and nodddd. "That sounds like a good idea, let's stay here and watch the sunrise before..well, riding off into the proverbial sunset and going to your mansion. A room at such a good place sounds fantastic." Melody hops up and looks around, noticing the stars dimming out as she waits for the sun to rise. To her, it was always interesting to see a day begin on any planet. Mainly because it was the closest she could ever get to a star...especially now
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
