Octi blushed heavily and nodded, smiling as Joseph walked up. "I see..." He sat down and listened to the facts, surprised at what Joseph had told him "He put me in his will? That's so...thoughtful of him" Bloodstone looked at the ground, not sure what to say as he smiled back up at Joseph "Thank you my friend, I'll let you know." Through the next few days Bloodstone does the best he can at running the little criminal group, despite the fact that he had never really run anything like this since he was a legitimate Quartz Knight on homeworld. Octi eventually evacuated the mansion ahead of what was possibly going to come, not wanting any of the staff hurt as he moved them into the necessary safe spots. He crouched down and hugged Morion when he reformed "Of course I did...you're my friend, I didn't want to see you get hurt!"
Last Edit: Aug 27, 2016 20:10:44 GMT by Bloodstone
The evacuation was swift and without problems Not the first, not the last in their carrier Senor B was a good boss^^ So the smoky Quartz reformed in... well, where Octavian took him
"We... we are Morion. We are your friend. I am... I AM your friend. Sorry..."
He hugged back, then looked around It was not the room where he poofed. "Where are we my dear Bloodstone? This is not the Mansion. Whats happened?"
It was good in Bloodstone's embrace
"Melody! Whats happened with her! Is Lady Chyrsocolla all right? Silly question... she must be. I gave clear orders, in case of any attack or emergency, my finest Human Quartz solders will escort her to a Hotel in Empire city and will protect her... Are you okay? If anybody tried to hurt you, I will hunt that bastard down"
Octavian sighed and smiled "It's okay...all of...you are my friend. In all honesty, I'm a tiny bit curious about all of that...and wondering what I have in my own head now" Bloodstone sighed and smiled "We're in a hotel in Empire City, the same one as Melody. Lady Chrysocolla is alright." Octi chuckled and looked around "I made sure to get us the best room possible, and I'm fine! I made sure to get us in a safe spot. The only reason I did is...well, Peridot and Hunter were on their way to the mansion. Now, there will be no one there no matter where they look, the gang has been evacuated to a safe house. Señor B did his job well apparently..." Bloodstone giggled and smiled
"It is a is a bit... complicated my dear Bloodstone..."
The Smoky Quartz shook his head, then sigh
"I can't blame you for your curiousity... eh... and I really hope you are alone in your head! I have tried to hold them back... myself back so my mind stay in MY mind. This is why is I... am not big fan of Fusion. We talked about this, remember? "
He asked gently, with a bit tired voice; it was mentally exhausting for him Then looked around
"A Hotel... yes, I remember. Me and my Humans worked out a protocol of some sort in the case of emergencies. They used to run like rats from a sinking ship, without any plans or order when the police or a rival band attacked their hideout. But their methods were effective. This way a bit more organized and... wait what??? Yellow Peridot and Hunter???"
Morion's voice was cold now, he stood up Or rised like a storm; dark and ill-omened, with merciless silver eyes
"Those two attacked me? And don't try to sugarcoat it! You have ordered an evacuation, to abandon one of our main base and home for a reason! This means war, I hope you realize... and you were forced to my side... "
"What, no! You didn't let me finish!" Octavian facepalms and sighs in frustration at Morion "You didn't let me finish! They haven't even attacked yet!" Bloodstone showed Morion proof, the records showing no clear attack...yet. "The threat is imminent, I'll admit, but I moved them so that the two of them wouldn't hurt the humans. That's the main reason they came in the first place, remember? Your mansion is safe, and Peridot is the ONLY one that wants to attack. You know I care about her just was much as you and Hunter, and Hunter's accompanying her and will keep her in place...should Rubellite be unleashed once again." Octi sighed as he looked out from the window "I'm sorry, okay?"
"So, just to make sure I am understand this correctly! Yellow Peridot, that insane monster, the one that I promissed you I will not hurt unless she provokes it, because you asked me not to do it,... wanted to attack me. You admit this is a threat...considered her a danger to a point you evacuated everybody from the harms way. And the only one who is keeping Rubellite on the leash is Hunter."
The Smoky Quartz voice was cold
"And you are sorry."
Morion was not happy
"Remind me again, why I am the bad guy?"
He asked with a bit dark, inquired tone, with a ton of sarcasm
"You were aware of the danger, so rushed to me, to warn me about... your so called friends, and technically betrayed them.
"Okay, so what do you want? And spare me the bullshit about peace and love and anything like that! Because how I see, THEY are the dangerous ones, and If you can't give me any reason, why I and my humans should live in technically fear, when will they decide to attack again or do something like that, then I am not going to let this insanity continue!
Bloodstone sighs as he punches the wall in frustration before looking over at Morion "I don't know what I want, I guess. Because for the past few months, I've had to deal with trying to make sure my friends, the gems I care about, DONT TEAR EACH OTHER APART AND START THIS STUPID WAR!" Octi clearly seemed pissed off but he sighed and took out a communicator "Hunter had given this to me, I know he'd be willing to explain the whole situation on his end. Admittedly I'm not sure what to do because clearly, my opinion doesn't matter apparently. I don't know who the bad guy is, I don't know who the good guy is, I don't know who anyone is now, because for weeks now, I've had to be torn apart by my decisions, criticized on either end. And don't give me anything about how they've done it more to mess with me, because I just...ugh....just listen to Hunter explain, that's all I ask." He sighs, setting the communicator down and turning it on
"Your judgement is clouded by emotions my dear Bloodstone. You can't and won't see the truth!"
The Smoky Quartz summoned his usual black armor Finaly his mask hided his face Morion was like the first time he and Octavian met at the ruined observation temple in the forest long time ago and talked about the stars
"Your decisions are not without consequences, do not forget that my dear Bloodstone...."
"But if you insist... I am willing to hear that Blue Zoisite friend of yours, my former Court-mate. I must admit, I am curious what he wants to say... what is his explanation. Turn on that communicator, and lets hear it! It is time to end this insanity once and for all!"
"Having emotions isn't always a bad thing, of course you've always been in the shadows most of your existence." Octavian sighed and said nothing as he watched Morion put his armor back on "I understand why you try not to get too attached to gems but I'm afraid that's just where we'll be different. Fine, let's get this thing on." Bloodstone picked up the communicator and turned it on before setting it down between the two gems so that they both could hear the conversation. "Alright Hunter, Morion's in the room, tell him everything that you need to." Octi sighed as he stood up and started pacing nervously, afraid that this whole thing might go wrong, and that he may just need to be alone for good..
Post by Hunter Zoisite on Aug 28, 2016 23:04:14 GMT
Hunter took a bit to get on the other end of the line. "Hello? bloodstone. I have been dealing with a rather angry peridot. Everyone just vanished from the mansion before we got there. um...I'm not going to ask where you are but from the tone of your voice you sound angry....and what exactly are you wanting me to tell him? That Yellow Peridot was out to shatter him and all I wanted to do was keep the humans out of the fight so Yellow didn't kill them? Um...Morion if you are there please note that I was only trying to keep Humans from being killed even if I don't agree with your morals about certain things at least I went out of my way to keep Yellow Peridot from killing your humans."
"Well now, you forgot to mention, my dearest Bloodstone, that little, teeny tiny thing, the fact, that Yellow Peridot wanted to shatter me... and yet, you still bargained, begged an oath out of me, not to hurt her? Not to hunt or fight her, unless there is no choice, and even then, you asked me only to bubble her?"
Morion voice was colder than a dead penguin on the ice It was a bit dark, like the cold, empty void between the Stars He was NOT happy Turned to the communicator
"Thank you Hunter, I do appreciate your concern, but my Humans are aware of the risk and dangers of siding with our Empire and me. Tho' I prefer them alive too.
Hunter sighs as he hears Morion voice gets colder. "Leave Octavian alone! He just wanted to make sure all party members involved in this conflict are fine. And your humans would have been fine if I got my hands on them. They would have all walked away from this with nothing more than a migraine at worst." He thinks of what to say to chill this situation. "Morion I get it. being afraid of someone coming to shatter you. It wants to make you lash out. but turning on those who are willing to help you will do nothing but make that risk of getting shattered greater. Being alone for so long has taught me many things. but it wasn't until i had friends that i realized how sad and lonely i really was."
"I'm sorry I forgot to mention that, okay? I just...ugh...I don't know...I thought that Peridot had agreed not to shatter you if she considered it." Octi sighed as he sat down on the bed. He listened to what Hunter and Morion talked about, and smiled as he realized that Hunter was trying to truly stay in a peaceful end of this. "I'm glad that you two can at least agree on something in all of this. And Hunter does have a point Morion, he's also telling the truth. Before all this happened he had some non-lethal stuff which he...borrowed...and had attached to his jet. I don't want to see you get shattered, you know that. I don't want to lose you, and you don't want to lose me. Can't we just help each other here?"
The Smoky Quartz rubbed the bridge of his nose resignedly
„Rubellite/Yellow Peridot wants to shatter me. This is not a surprise, considering she is and insane, dangerous experiment, that tried to murder you, her „friends” several times. I have stopped her fight with my dear Bloodstone at the Kindergarten, by ordering my Humans to open fire on both of them. They have orders not to aim Bloodstone’s Gem... sooo thats true, that time Yellow Peridot was lucky so her Gem didn’t cracked or shattered. I really can understand her enmity towards me. Hunter, for fifteen millenia I have worked alone, as an Infiltrator, infiltrated courts, colonies, Gem cliques and countless species, wearing masks and created false personalities, or just murdered the originals and replaced them. When my Diamond gave the orders, from watching Eye I became the Wrath, hunting down the targets as an efficient killer. I had my fair share of enemies and I have been in dangerous situations. I am not afraid the shattering more than any Gem... I was well aware, If my Diamonds are not satisfied, my life is over. IF I am lucky... so please spare me the sympathy, tho’ I am really apriciate it, I really do!”
„But back to Yellwo Peridot! So she wants to shatter me. Okay. She is not alone. The Crystal Gem Rebels wants the same thing. This War is mostly the reason I have gathered some Human allies. thats not new for you, I never denined the fact, they are my allies and the first line of deffense in this war. You know, your and Yellow Peridot’s fear of the Humans, my Humans or any humans for that mater, are justified. Sooner or later the Humans will realize, the Aliens, the advanced, shapeshifting Aliens on their planet are waging a war! Even if the Rebellion would case to exist, and the Gems on Earth would unite under one Colonial Court.... the possibility of the Diamond's retribution would be still there. Not to mention the Corruption. The Monsters. It is just a mater of time ... Humans will choose sides. Some of them will support the Rebellion, and since Starlight Swan, a Crystal Gem Hero already claimed Beach City as her domain, I think the humans in that city eventually will side with the Rebels, beliving their lies. There will be humans who will side with the Loyals, like my Humans, realizing a tiny little Planet and a handfull of rebel can't possibly win against an intergalactic, technologically superior Empire that is far far older than their own existence on the planet... the only hope for survival is on Our side. And there will be the third group, the Humans who will want only one thing: get rid of the Aliens on their world, and in their eyes, death would be a better than living with us, they will do everything to destroy us! The slowly spreading Corruption and the Monsters are just the Icing on the cake! Eventually, the dumbest of Humans will notice the huge and vicious monsters trying to eat them... and will arm themself or seek out Gem allies against the monsters."
The Assassin sigh
"The Gems fear of Humans is quite justified! But as I said to Bloodstone, I am not the source of this problem... I am the solution! Human allies are important in this war... and likewise important in the time of peace! Humanity's involvement in Gem affairs is inevitable... I’ve seen countless times how a Gem occupation works! But even if you just immagine yourself in their place, you would conclude the same thing. Am I right Hunter? Bloodstone? Could any of you confute my reasons?"
Morion looked them with a questioning glance
“I think not. But if you can, I am listening! Now, so Yellow Peridot wanted to shatter me, and you Hunter accompanied her... with a weapon or method or I don’t know exactly what, but not to stop her! You wanted to remove my humans, to protect them... and that is quite noble. But since I have told you they are my Shield and considering your insane friend wanted to kill me, removing my first line of defense is a bit jerk move. Or simply forfeiting your precious independence and siding with her... Basically a declaration of war damn it! And the last time we have met, you asked a favor, asked me to help you to find the parts of your ship! I have never heard from you since that night, nor my human for that matter or the helicopter... I helped you, and your “gratitude” was to... help your murderous, insane fried to kill me, by „saving my Humans”. I think I am rightly feeling myself betrayed! Am I not? By both of you! Bloodstone forgot to mention, Yellow Peridot wants to KILL ME!!! But asked me, to spare her, asked me, beggednot to hunt down or hurt her, and only fight with her if there is no other way, and even then, not to crack or shatter her, just... bubble her! And I have agreed, I gave him my Oath I will not do those things... And Bloodstone was well aware, what was your friend’s goal! And you? My court mate? After the help, the good will, after everything? This was your thank you?”
The Smoky Quartz growled But forced himself to calm down After a heavy hearted sigh he continued
„BUT belive or not, I DO understand your reasons... both of you! Bloodstone is a good hearted Gem, who found himself in a very uncomfortable position, thanks to his friends! But tried to save everybody, while tried to stay neutral. And you? Blue Zoisites are lone wolves... like me. So it is possible your intentions were pure... you really only wanted just to save the humans, and not to attack me, or help in that little siege of Yellow Peridot’s. Lets pretend that. I am willing to belive that... since it is quite understandable. You wanted to save the Humans, and you didn’t really thinked about the consequences... since you never had to. Even the fact what actually happened the planets you have discovered was a shock to you... so yeah. I totally could immagine, you only wanted to protect my Humans from your bloodthirsty friend’s carnage”
Moiron nodded calmly
„So, lets play with open hands now, as the Humans says... What do you guys want from me? Let me tell you how I see this! Correct me if I’m wrong! Yellow Peridot: She wants to kill me. Understandable. Rubellite is a creature of instincts... and I am a danger to her existence. And I’m afraid, as I said this to Bloodstone, there is no such thing like Yellow Peridot, only Rubellite, and Yellow Peridot is only just a mask. A clever disguise of an insane monster to hide herself. Don’t forget, I am an expert in Masquerading! And as I saw at the Kindergarten neither of you could tell the difference between your friend and her “other side” Am I right? Sooner or later you have to do something about her! Bloodstone: You made your desires clear. You want peace. A noble goal. I respect that. You want to protect your friends and lovers. Again, a noble goal. I promised you I will not harm them. I will uphold my Oath. Even tho’ they just gave me a reason to break my promise... but I will not do it. You... you are still important for me my dear, beloved Bloodstone. I will uphold my oath. But the next time I’m expecting your help against them if they ever dare to attack me! This is a reasonable request I think. Don’t you agree? And do you want anything else from me?”
Then he turned to the communicator “Lastly you Blue Zoisite, Hunter... Let’s hear what do you want! Please... I am quite curious!”
Blodstone sighed and nodded, listening to the explanations that Morion gave "I know, I know, I know...I agree...and can't think of anything else to ask" He looked up at him and smiled nervously "I know I have to deal with Yellow Peridot at some point, I know that the humans are probably going to realize what's going on at some point and I'm ready to handle that WHEN IT HAPPENS." Octi looked back down at the floor and sighed in frustration "I just want to stop this madness between the four of us, okay? When this war gets going we are going to need to be ready no matter which side we all take, there's no point in trying to shatter each other. I agree with Morion in that the humans are going to find out but I agree with Hunter in that we should keep the peace somewhat as well. I agree with both of you because you two are my friends, and I can't bear to lose either of you."
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.
Dec 31, 2019 4:25:34 GMT
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
