Hunter sighs. "Morion calm down. My weapons would have left them very much alive. The worse they would need is some ointment for a slight burn. Yellow Peridot wants you shattered yes, But I feel she is just overreacting...Look if you want to settle this then come back to the mansion where Yellow Peridot is waiting. and I can Guarantee you won't like what happens. But do know I won't be involved in the fighting unless you bring in your humans. Otherwise, listen to Octavian he has tried everything in his power to prevent a fight. If we start a war then this planet will either be destroyed or the humans will turn on all gem kind. A famous quote said. 'You either learn from history or your doomed to repeat it' and history has shown time and time again that this quote is true."
"I have made an Oath Hunter. And I will not break it."
The Smoky Quartz shook his head
"If I would go back there, there would be fight. And Bloodstone would be forced to fight on my side, to honor his oath. You would be dead. So for the sake of peace and for everybody, It is better if we avoid each other from now. If you really want to protect the humans and Earth, aim your weapons against Lady Obsidian. She is a Homeworld scientist, and not quite sane, a fact in both me and Lady Carbide agree! And she have all my research and data about the Meta-Human Project, the Archangel Network, and several other side porjects of Project M! Not to mention, she have the latest Gem technology, a ship and a swarm of well armed drones to protect her! "
"And I you havent noticed yet, there is a War already. Good bye Hunter! For the Peace sake, I hope nor you, neither your "friends" will cross my path! May the Diamonds be with you my dear ex-court mate!"
He turned off the communicator, and turned to Bloodstone
"Your friends are insane, I hope you realized that by now my dear Bloodstone! Protect them if you must, but they will be your doom... even a blind can see this! Open your eyes my dear... and be careful with and around them! If you accept my advice, don't go back to them... even if they smile, they will never forget or forgive your betrayal! As I said when I first invited you and Hunter to the mansion, you only need to ask a place in my side. I was always willing to share all this with you and Hunter! Or anyi Gem. Sadly Hunter forfeited his chance... but you are still welcome! My.. Our Humans like you!
Octavian sighs as he looks out the window, clenching his fists as he turned to look back at Morion. "This is why I hate war, this is why I hate conflict. I don't care if they ever forgive me, I'm my own gem!" Bloodstone clearly looked just a little ticked off and sighed "If they are my doom then so be it, they're my friends and I don't mind going out fighting with them. At the same time, I'm glad to stay at your side. You have been a very good gem to me and I want to maintain our relationship." Octi ran a chain through his hands as he looked up at the Smoky Quartz "I'm sorry if you disagree with my decisions. But I'm more than just a walking bulk of strength and I'm sure you probably know this. Why do you think I prefer to stay independent? It's so I can work on both sides of the fence if possible, make sure I have lots of allies. I'm not saying I regret working with you, or that I'm ending this. I'm just saying that I don't intend on giving up on Hunter. As for YP...well, if she's mad at me, I'll knock her back into sanity. I've gotten quite a bit stronger since then." He smirked as he sat down on the bed "And with Melody, I'll make sure she's safe. If you want her back with you, just say the word and I'll make sure she arrives as quickly as possible. If not, that's up to you then"
The smoky Quartz pulled Bloodstone in to his embrace from behind
"You are your own, unique cool Gem, thats right... you don't need to apologise"
Morion rested his head on Bloodstone shoulder, kissed his neck gently, then sigh
"Our relationship is a rocky one... but still, I treasure it!"
He smiled, watched Empire City with Bloodstone
"They will try again... To attack me. To kill me. But don't worry, I will... not hurt them. As per my Oath. But let's hope, they come to their senses. Anyhow, I have several things to do. New base for a start... a new home... But I will contact you, I promise. And you know my number! If you need anything, just ask... but first, yes, I will talk with the Lady... I will explain them whats happened. And.. I guess you will now go "home". To them...? Or to the Mansion. They are there... waiting. But Oath or no Oath, If they hurt you, I will burn this planet, nothing will stop me to avange you my beloved, dear Bloodstone!
The Smoky Quartz spread his shadowy dark wings, then closed them around the two Gems
Bloodstone sighed and blushed as he looked back at Morion. "I don't know what I'll do in all honesty. I suppose I should go explain to the two of them my view of things and try to keep conflict from going on. After all, if anyone's going to try and keep some sanity going on it might as well be me" Octi sighs as he looks out at the City "I'll make sure to contact you if I need help again. And I'm honored by the fact that you want to protect me no matter what happens." He blushes and smiles at Morion "If nothing else, I suppose it never hurts to have a proverbial guardian angel of sorts. That's what the humans call it and...well, I think you fit the role perfectly" Octi sighs happily
The Smoky Quartz nodded "I am aware of the meaning of the expression my dear Bloodstone... This is why I named one of my projects Archangel Network..."
Morion smiled a bit But the smile quickly faded. The day was horrible so far and it was far from over...
"In a sense you are right, I am a Guardian angel. Not just yours, but all of the Gems loyal to our Empire. But you are special dear Bloodstone. Sometimes I fell I am the only one left who is Loyal. Truly loyal to our Homewrold, our Empire... and not an experiment that went rogue or become or was from the start insane..."
He mumbled His voice was cold and dark
"This is my Empire, and I will burn the world to protect it"
"I understand.." Bloodstone sighed, sensing the discomfort that Morion had. "If you don't mind me asking Morion, what exactly is the Archangel Network? If you can tell me about one of the other projects you have as well. I just want to know if there's anything that might concern me." He turned and looked over at the Smoky Quartz, smiling softly "You don't have to tell me if you don't want to. I can respect another gem's privacy if needed. However, at the same time, if something should come up where...I don't know...I might get involved in one of your projects without my knowledge and then you and I would need to have a little discussion between the two of us"
"Why I have the funny feeling... If I tell you, you will tell Hunter and Yellow Peridot?"
The smoky Quartz frowned But then shook his head with a sigh
"Boy I'm gonna regret this! The Archangel Network is just a theory, I don't have the resources to make it a reality. But shared my researches with Lady Obsidian... It is possible, she is already working on it! So, the Archangel Network. While back ago I have noticed the humans, tho' primitive biological lifeforms, have several devices orbiting the planet. They are using them for communication and predict the future weather. And lesser degree, for scientific purposes. But I think we could use them, or built our own network, for a more... specific reason. Sadly I am not a scientist so don't know this would even work, but If we could build a Gem Destabilizer in these satelites, we could cover the whole Planet, no Crystal Gem would be safe... global waves or focused shots to a certain area... but as I said, this is just theory..."
"Ugh...why am I not surprised" Bloodstone face palmed and sighed "Considering it's just a theory, no, I won't tell the two of them. The only reason I'm talking like this is more because I'm worried about the idea of that project. Even if you did manage to make it a reality, what if it malfunctioned? We could get wiped off the face of the Planet, who needs the corruption?" He shook his head and smiled "But I know the interests are good in your opinion at least. I'll respect that. Obsidian though..I have mixed feelings about her. I met her once and...well...it could've been better to say the least" Octi shrugged and leaned against the balcony
"Thank you, the last thing we need is more problem... and your friend are truble makers!"
The Smoky Quartz nodded
"Actually, since the Gem Destabilizer is just "destroy" the physical form, the body of the Gems, make them poof... the Archangel Network can't wipe out the Gems on Earth! I am not that insane.... And the first rule of any developement is: always have a shelter from your own weapon. So you and I would be safe, and our allies too... But even if the Archangel Network could wipe out our kind on Earth, would that be a bad thing? Earth would be safe from the Gems, and the Corruption! The corrupted Gems would die with us. Not a b ig price to save the Empire from the Corruption, or the humans... but as I said, the Gem Destabilizer just make Gems poof. Its really the most bloodless solution in our whole history! No fighting. No victims. No casualities. No shattering or cracking. Just poof. Then our Humans will collect the poofed Gems and we bubble them. Your dream my beloved! With the Archangel Network we wouldn't even need to fight with the Monsters! We could capture and save them without fighting and hurting them!"
"Ugh...I know I know...' Bloodstone nodded, remembering what the destabilizers did. "Don't get me wrong, I'm okay with them being a backup measure but..something just doesn't feel right about this. I don't know why" Octi shrugged as he looked down at the floor "Perhaps it's the fact that you would be essentially sabotaging earth satellites to be used for your own uses." He looked back up at Morion, a mixed expression on his face. "I'm okay with saving Earth from the corruption ONLY if that's the solution that we would end up using in the first place. Who knows? We might develop some cure to the corruption and prevent the madness coming into Earth in the first place"
"Actually I would be more satisfied if we would build our own satelites and send them to orbit. But... I'm afraid, Humans would see that as an act of agression. I mean an advanced Alien race bulding satelits and send them up? I would be concerned to! To be honest I would see that as an act of war and I would make a pre-emptive strike against them. So using their devices in secret made more sense to me. But this is just theory-crafting. Nothing is set in stone yet!"
The Smoky Quartz smiled
"And as for Lady Obsidian... you heard me, I told Hunter she have all of my researches and plans, and she have the technology, ships and drones to use them. She is their enemy, not me! I hope they will realize this and eliminate her... Lady Carbide would be happy to if Obsidian would be in a Bubble..."
"Fair enough. I understand your own concerns as well. That sounds like a much safer theory than the first idea." Bloodstone sighed as Morion talked about Obsidian "I have mixed feelings about her. Granted I don't like Obsidian at all. I don't plan on going into detail about how our encounter went. But I feel that trying to get the two of them to go after her is going to backfire in some form or fashion...even with YP's power, you have to admit they might be out of their league. But then again, we won't know for sure until something happens" Octi shrugged, looking out at the city, not entirely sure just when he would head out again into the world
"Yellow Peridot is a dangerous and Insane... probably unstable experiment my beloved Bloodstone! Even a dumb Rubie could beat her, you just need strategy. Lady Obsidian is a Gem genious, a scientist! A real one! Yellow Peridot will not have a chance against her!"
The Smoky Quartz was cheerful "I can't really wait. I am bound by my Oath. She is not. May the Diamonds rest her tortured soul"
Morion giggeled with a wicked smile
"Life is sooooo unfair. Everybody can have fun but me..."
He gave a kiss to Bloodstone's shoulder
"You have to go, am I right my beloved Bloodstone? They are waiting for you... to explain them everything. But you know my number and how to reach me."
"I...probably should be going soon, yes. I know I'm going to have to explain." Bloodstone blushed as he was kissed by Morion "If you find anything, ANYTHING, you think is important to me, please let me know as soon as possible. Even with my position in this thing I gotta stay on my proverbial toes in intel, right?" Octi chuckled and smiled over at him "I gotta agree with what you said earlier, our relationship is a bit...rocky at best but I intend on trying my best to maintain it." He sighed and looked back out at the city "I'm just wondering how long I'll have before I need to get back into the fight. It's getting much too close to my liking"
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
