The Smoky Quartz wasn't in the best mood The attack, the evacuation, the little debate with Hunter... everything! Not to mention the almost-fusion with Bloodstone!
"He is a cute one sweety... you should let us to play with him!"
The Voice gigled in his head; Moiron tried to ignore it And now there he was... at the door of Lady Chyrsocolla's room She and Morion were so different, yet almost instantly found harmony.... "Awww... so cute! Discord and Melody found Harmony?"
The Voice gigled again It was... a bit uncomfortable situation. She was everything that the Smoky Quartz not. Yet they gravitated toward each other... But it was just a bit platonic between "friends" At least Morion hoped... With a sigh he knocked
"Lady Chyrsocolla? Are you awake? Its me, Morion M'Lady...'
Chrysocolla yawned as she woke up from her slight nap. The whole experience of being moved from the mansion to a safe point was all quite interesting for her. However, Bloodstone, or Señor B as he was being referred to by the staff was quite the gentleman and made her comfortable in everything that occurred. As she heard a knock on her door, she hopped up and walked over, opening the door and smiling when she saw who it was. "Morion! Come in, it's alright. I was just resting from the whole ordeal of the past day or so" She moved out of the way and let Morion in as she smiled a little "How are you feeling? Has Bloodstone been treating your gem well? I heard that you had poofed.."
The Smoky Quartz closed his silver eyes for a bit Of course, Bloodstone told Lady Chyrsocolla whats happened with him... why Senor B was in charge insted of Senor M... It was a logical move... ...but Morion wasn't too happy about it Well, no harm done He nodded
"Yes. I poofed... nothing serious. And I am fine now Lady Chyrsocolla, thank you for your concern. And... please accept my humblest and deepest apology..."
The Smoky Quartz bowed with shame in his voice
"I have sworn to protect you, but I could't keep my vow. To be honest in my hubris, I never considered the possibility those Gems would attack my base... Sadly my Oath binds me, so I can't have my revenge. For now. But eventually they will make a mistake and vengeance will be ours M'Lady..."
"No need to apologize Morion, I appreciate the concern that you have for me." Melody sighs as she sits down and looks up at Morion "I know that you swore to protect me but you have to realize darling that I can handle myself in combat if needed, no offense. After all, I'm more than just a singer. Although that appears to be a bit of a stereotype I've gotten over the years" Melody looked a little frustrated but smiled "In all seriousness though, everyone makes mistakes. From what I know your base is still safe...for the moment at least. I can help against the gems if I can but..if nothing else I can possibly do a bit of music therapy of sorts. Perhaps help relax you at times?"
The smoky quartz nodded "I am a Quartz... I think it is naturall for me to protect the other Gems. Sorry"
"Well... the mansion is maybe safe, but it would be foolish for us to go back. Oh they are insane... well, at least one of them. But I don't really suggest you to go them and try to help. But it is your choice Lady Chyrsocolla... I am just a humble servant, not your boss, nor your keeper. But please, be careful!"
The Smoky Quartz begged "Your music... would be great. To hear you sing again..."
Morion admited with a sad smile
"You have a great talent and beautiful voice M'lady... It would be a honor"
"Alright..I'll be careful, don't worry. Besides, this hotel is fairly nice and I intend on staying here at least for a few more days." She shrugs and smiles at Morion "It's quite nice, even if the humans aren't the best species, they sure do know how to make relaxation." Melody nodded and picked up her guitar ax, thinking to herself "I suppose since I have some time I'll play at least one song for you. I just need to think for a minute as to what I could sing." She started strumming a few notes on the guitar, getting a feel for it again as she soon started singing various songs she had heard on her travels, ranging from folk ballads to love songs, various subjects
Melody smiled when she finished playing. Performing was natural for her, mainly due to the fact that she was built to be a diva singer gem in the first place. As she listened to Morion play, the Chrysocolla couldn't help but think to herself, no pun intended, that the Smoky Quartz had a decent singing voice. It wasn't bad and it really was one of the better male singer voices that she had heard in a long time. Melody clapped softly and giggled a little when Morion finished playing "Very good! That was a nice song, I can't help but feel like I may have heard that at some point, I dunno why." She shrugged but smiled "You're a good guitar player"
"I had time to practice... Music always helped me to relax between two mission. But as I said, I am lack the creativity to compose, to make something new, something unique and original! Weapons and porjects, and such things? Any time. I am quite sure, If I would have the time to think about it and the required resources, I could easly conquer this planet and deliver it on a silver plate to our Diamonds... but to write a song? From my heart? Form my soul? I even doubt I have those two things... I can only copy and imitate. Nothing else. Just the echo of the real genius who wrote it originally... I am not like you M'lady.
Melody smiled and sighed, nodding as she listened to Morion. "Everyone is able to do their own song at some point Morion. Some gems just need more work at their song than others. It's possible you just need to practice your craft a bit more than someone like me." She shrugged as she sat down next to him "Another way you could look at it is this, I don't think I'd be able to conquer or take over as much as you can due to the fact that you're simply more advanced in battle tactics as a whole! In comparison, I could be a a fantastic gem in a support role or, as I said, a singer who could grace any concert hall in the galaxy"
"I had fifteen millenium for that Lady Chyrsocolla... and nothing. Trust me. I am empty, just a "rock" "
He shook his head "You are a great artist Lady Chyrsocolla! That alone makes you a superior Gem compared to me. Or any other Gem, except the Diamonds of course"
The Smoky Quartz Smiled
"If I may so bold to ask.. what will you going to do now? Lot of thing had happened... for example, two Gems attacked us. Not you, but they never considered the possibility, they potentially could hurt other Gems, my guests. OR... they DO considered it. And decided my uest are my allies so their enemies... simple minds, simple reasons."
Melody sighed and smiled up at Morion "You're more than just an empty 'rock' as you put it, all gems have their own personality, their own talents. I believe that you have your own set of skills. And there's no way I'm above all of the other gems...not in my opinion at least." She shrugged as she tried to think a little "I really don't know what I'm going to do. Perhaps wander around this place some, see just who I might be able to find. Even if they're not an ally, I'm always open for new experiences in all honesty." Melody giggled and hugged Morion "I'm glad you're okay too, you don't seem like you deserve to really get hurt"
"I promise I'll try my best to stay away from corruption. And I intend to stay on the side of the empire unless something where to drastically change my opinion." Melody sighed as she looked up at Morion "I don't want to hurt you as well. You seem like a kind gem, in one way or another at the very least." She smiled softly and giggled "I intend on trying to keep myself alive for as long as I can. My combat skills are quite admirable so I'll make sure to do it for as long as I can." Chrysocolla scooted over and sat down next to Morion "I sense a bit of discomfort in you. Want to talk about something?"
The Smoky Quartz smiled warmly "Uhm... juts out of curiosity... in theory... what could change your mind about your opinion? What coudl cause you to switc sides? To.. become a traitor, a fugitive criminal?"
Morion was a bit concerned The fact was disturbing for him Melody is open to such thing and not a hardcore loyalist... "I am sure, you are a capable fighter Lady Chyrsocolla! A Bard on the battlefield is in the same danger as the soldiers..."
He nodded Then came the uncomfortable question
"Discomfort... you have no idea M'lady. I... almost fused with Bloodstone.
He admited in shame
"It was an accident! Im am an anti-fusionist so to speak. Same Gem Fusions are just warmachines, but the Fusion of two different Gem? Now that is an abomination!
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
