Our universe may live in one bubble that is sitting in a network of bubble universes in space. Is our universe unique? From science fiction to science fact, there is a proposal out there that suggests that there could be other universes besides our own, where all the choices you made in this life played out in alternate realities. Maybe a Gem Artifact exploded, and the echoes of memories escaped through the „cracks” of the fabrick of reality to a familiar minds... Maybe something went terribly wrong in a Kindergarten, and the resulting shockwave reached the minds some of the Gems in other realities Maybe a Time Traveler created several alternate time lines and realities, but the mind finds it way to save itself... Who knows for sure? Anyhow, this is the story of one of them... ...they are our little secrets
In a Galaxy far far away... Colony G-755 A beautiful Gem Colony, with a splendid view to a majestic Nebula; the star filled sky’s main sight was the green and purple star cloud An ideal bacground for a great Gem artist, the Diva Melody’s concert! In her room in the Emerald Spire’s top level, there was another Gem The Gem „band” other member The Smoky Quartz; long black hair, painted face, leather jacket... played with his guitar
„You are just nervous becouse Blue Diamond is coming to our concert Melody! Playing to her is an honor! But she is just another Gem... immagine her with a T-shirt with our logo, headbanging to our songs and music!”
Chrysocolla was warming up with her fellow musician, Morion, on G-755. It was the perfect colony for her to perform on, finally a place for her to show off her music to the world...erm..galaxy? Either way she was excited. Having heard that Blue Diamond herself would be coming over to their next concert, Melody started freaking out slightly and for good reasons! Blue Diamond was one of the diamonds, what would happen if she thought they sounded bad?! "That actually is a funny image, I kinda want to see if we can get her to headbang to our songs" She laughed, falling off of a chair before standing up "I'm so excited! This concert will be one of our best performances yet~"
"Yeah, I am quite a funny guy... great musican, funny, good looking... humble..."
The Smoky Quartz snickered, while played a tune or two with the guitar, trying to find a melody, or for just the beauty of the sounds
"You are thinking, ", what would happen if she thought we are sounded bad?" Am I rigt? Melody, you are always nervous an without a reason! Okay except that one time on HK-778... but that was different! Yellow Diamond's Jaspers are tastless clods!"
The Morion stood up and walked to her chair
"We are always giving out our best dear... "
With a smile, he kissed the top of Melody's head with a soft kiss
"Well, I am. You don't need to preform, you are always perfect, like a Diamond!"
"Sheesh, I had almost forgotten about what happened on HK-778, those Jaspers were an awful audience" Melody shook her head and sighed. She couldn't help but blush a little as her head was kissed. "You always say that..I still feel like I'm not the most perfect musician. But as long as I have your support, I think I can do okay" Chrysocolla smiled and hugged Morion before brushing herself off and giggling "So, how long do we have until the performance starts? I just want to make sure I have enough time to warm-up and all that stuff. Also I'll um..try not to unleash a sonic wave again. You have to admit that was kind of hilarious though when most of the gems got knocked over like bowling pins" She snickered at the memory
"That was funny. Although I can't help but wonder if that was out of pity for us or if that was due to the low intelligence that most Rubies have." Melody giggled and smiled "The Diamond of Music? That does have a nice ring to it but I don't know what the actual diamonds would think about that" She blushed when she was kissed and nodded "Alright, just figured I'd ask. And please don't put that mental image in my head. Yes that would be a historical performance but personally I'd rather be forced to be a power source or something than be executed." Melody shivered at the thought of either of those possibilities "Regardless, hopefully they don't mind the old court musician returning."
"I always wondered what its feel like to be a Diamond...."
The smoky Quartz murmured
"Perfect, unique, flawless..."
"Well, you are perfect, unique and flawless, so it is safe to call you a Diamond! And you know I love to put immages into heads! Smokes and Mirrors, my speciality! Not just background effects you know! "
Morion embraced the Gem, and pulled her, landing with Melody on the couch
"And You are a powersource.... giving me power, insipration... "
"So, any improvisations tonight? I love the chaos, the unpredictable things, the uncertainaty! You are my love Chyrsocolla, the Meoldy! I am Morion, the Discord! And our little band is a powerfull force of nature! And we are not that old... tho these new Gems... Generation V? Or VII? I can't remeber.... without any special powers or even shapeshifting... "
"Yes, I'm well aware of that. I swear half of the effects that you do at our shows are because of your smoke powers or whatever it is you like to do." She nudges Morion a little and smiles "You're such a charmer Morion, calling me stuff like that. And I'm not sure..hadn't given it to much though." Melody shrugged and sighed "I do agree with you there, in comparison to the new gems who..sadly don't have anything special in comparison. It's a shame, I have fun whenever we get to use our powers in general." Chrysocolla perked up a little and smiled "As for the show tonight though, I feel like we should just mess around with whatever happens. The best chaos is the random kind~"
Innocent eyes, but shape shifted a bit... to summon two little devil's horn^^
"Planned chaos is not really a chaos! So special effects? With the lights, smokes, illusions and all...?"
The Smoky Quartz snickered Then thinked about it a bit, with Chrysocolla in his arms Tere were so many possibilites!
"I know! Lets pull up some Gems to the stage! Viewer participation is always fun! okay, not fun.. its hilarious! Immagine a Jasper with a microphone! Or a Rubie team quartett! Oh oh oh I know! A Gem Aristocrat on the stage! One of the Zaphires! Or Lazulies! Oooooooor...."
Morion smile was more of a devilish grin "Immagine... pulling up the stage Blue Diamond herself to preform!!!"
"At the very least yes, I intend on putting special effects to good use" Melody nodded and smiled, rolling her eyes and sighing as Morion summoned the little devil horns. "All of those are good ideas, I'll admit. It could be interesting seeing any of those on the stage." Chrysocolla's eyes widened in surprise "Blue Diamond herself?! Would she even allow us to ask her? What would happen if she said no? What would happen if she called for our heads? I don't want to be executed!" Melody started freaking out, worrying about any and all of the negative situations that could happen if they actually did invite Blue Diamond up to perform "...Of course at the same time maybe she has some sort of singing voice we don't know about."
"My ideas are always good my dear partner Meoldy!"
The Smoky Quartz winked with a wicked little smile, but innocent eyes
"Yes yes YESSS!!!"
He got up, and pulled the artisan Gem with him, with a few dance steps, then spinned her
"Just immagine it! You and I! We will grab her! Pull her up from her throne! Her Majesty! The great Blue Diamond herself on stage! Lights! Effects... then suddenly? Silence! And a beam of light around her! And you gives her the microphone, and I will hide us with smoke, and the satge is hers! There are to possible outcome. One: she is a good singer... and I think she is, after all, Diamonds are Perfect! Two: she is not, and refuse the whole thing and we are toast^^"
"Your ideas are good MOSt of the time Morion" Melody smiled and rolled her eyes. "Haven't we had one or two backfire?" She shrugged and giggled as she started to dance with the Smokey Quartz "Granted that IS a good mental image you have there. But at the same time I don't know if I want to risk doing this and the two of us get executed." Chrysocolla sighed and blushed, smiling "How about we get through the concert first and THEN we can try and see who might want to be on stage. After all, I feel like the whole crowd participation thing should happen towards the later parts of the show. The band has to play their own tunes first~"
"One.... oooor two. Okay, maybe three... oor... ahem... okay, you are right"
The smoky Quartz admitted with a blush
"Yeah, yeah you are right my dearest Muse...'
"Okay, lets sit down and... plan"
"Even planing ahead is soooooo boring! But we are partners... and you are the main atraction! I am just your back up singer, partner!"
Morion smiled "Not that it is a problem mind you! I am lucky the diamonds spared me. My job should be to be a Knight! Not a singer! Or musician... I should fight and leand mindless Rubies to War! For the Glory of the empire and my Diamond! Instead, I am a defected Quartz, and I am here... AND LOVE IT!!!"
Melody nodded and smirked as Morion listed off the number of backfired ideas but smiled and hugged him. "It's alright, and yes, let's plan." She sat down and rolled her eyes, smiling "It doesn't matter if I'm the main attraction, we're partners! That means that you should have some say in what we do too." Chrysocolla nodded and sighed "I suppose you are lucky. Maybe if we do well on a few more performances you can be let back on the battlefield again? And you're not defected, you're perfect in my opinion" Melody smiled and hugged back, kissing his cheek and sighing before humming "How many songs do you think we should do anyway? Five? Six? Seven?" She shrugged, trying to think of how long it should be
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
