"I really don't know Morion. I...I just don't know." Melody sighed, clearly looking a bit nervous. "I'm only saying that in the event that something might force me to switch sides. War can make gems do strange things sometimes." She smiled a little when she was complimented "Oh please, I'm only a support role if nothing else. After all, my songs can only do so much on the battlefield." Melody listened closely when Morion talked about being fused. "I see..hm...I have mixed feelings about fusion myself, but I know how it tends to work sometimes. Does that mean that you and Bloodstone...erm...care about each other a lot? If you get where I might be going with the question?"
Well, Morion wasn't too happy to hear that Gems should be loyal It was a good thing they have changed the subject from that uncomfortable topic... to another^^
"Fusions... are nothing else, just weapons of mass destruction. Several same type Gems come together to form a bigger and stronger version of themselfs. Rubies. They are dumb and mass produced, like Pearls, but the idea of Fusing Pearls are disgusting! We don't really need bigger servants. Now the Rubies... they are expendable, so their Fusion is somewhat acceptable. But the Fusion of the Quartz Knights?"
He shook his head
"The fusion of different tpye Gems? Abominations. Horrible monsters..."
Then he sighed
"Bloodstone and I... we are close. Sometimes. But... I don't know. "
"I see...I understand why you think that. Some fusions I've seen admittedly...well, abomination is really the best way to describe it, sadly." Melody sighed as she looked up at Morion. "What don't you know? Because I feel like that as much as you might hate fusion, you know that's a sign that the two of you are at least really close. At the very least I feel that you're good allies for each other, am I correct?" She smiles a little "I'm not saying you two should try fusing again, but I'm just curious. What do you mean by...sometimes? I know Bloodstone is not exactly...loyal...but what do you really think about him? Or are you not comfortable sharing?"
"We are not-real enough to begin with.... just projections form a smart stone"
The Smoky Quartz's sound was bitter He growled a little "The same-gem fusion is at least something "same"... look, immagine yourself as a bowl of water. Blue water, okay? Everythig is Lady Chyrsocolla is in that bowl. The Blue water. Your memories, personality, desires, fears, secrets, thoughts, knowledges... everything! Now, I'm sure you have seen a Ruby-fusion on the battlefield, three or four or more Rubies gather together to form a Fusion, a giant Ruby-soldier. Now, in our example, that means there are four different bowl of water. The four different Ruby. When they fuse, all the four bowl's contents are poured into one giant bowl. Mixing... They lost themselves! Try to separate that mixed four bowls of water... you could pour it from the big bowl to the four smaller... but you never could get the same back! Different-Gem fusions are worse! You are a bowl of Blue water Chyrsocolla, and an Ruby is a bowl of Red. Mix them togeteher... to form a Fusion. Could you ever get back the pure Blue water of your "self?"
Then he shook his head
"Bloodstone and I... we are... we are close. Sometimes. But He is damn stubborn!"
Morion hit the wall with his fist, then watched the crack
"Why... WHY he must be an Independent? Eventually the Diamonds will arrive! Today, tomorrow, or ten thousand years later, who cares! They will come! And they will demand answers! And when Yellow, Blue, White or Pink Diamond will hear "Oh, I wanted to be free, so I stayed Independent and..." and at that point they will SHATTER him! And I can't protect him! Every time I look at Bloodstone I see a strong Gem who should be fighting on my side to restore order on this misrable doomed planet! I want to see an ally, a companion, a friend... a lover...."
He closed his silver eyes, so no tear could escape
"But I only see an Independent Traitor that I have to kill in the future... as I promised him, to save him from the Diamond's wrath"
Melody nods and listens to Morion, deciding to stay quiet until he finished talking. Eventually she walked over and hugged the Smoky Quartz, trying her best to comfort him as she thought to herself. "I see...it does sound like you two really are close. I can understand why you care about him so much." She tried to think to herself about what to say. Admittedly she hadn't gathered too many allies during her time on Earth..but she could understand how gems cared about each other a lot, especially in instances such as this. "I feel that he needs time. Time to think, time to decide. And time to simply....hope. I think that's all anyone can ask for in situations like this. I do hope you two can stay together if possible"
"Did I mention, Bloodstone have a lover, Yellow Peridot, the same insane monster that tried to kill him and his friend several times and the one that attacked us and my mansion?"
The Smoky Quartz murmured with a bitter voice
"And he now had to go "home" to explain Yellow Peridot and her traitorous friend, why did he betrayed her and warn me? Evacuated the mansion, and so on? "
He shook his head
"We have no future Lady Chyrsocolla... at least how I see now. And maybe this way the better. Eventually Bloodstone will be forced to choose a side. Abandon his independence. Became a good little, Loyal Gem, or a Crytsal Gem Rebel. And face the consequences of his past. And of curse, his future.
"Really? That's...interesting..." Melody took this into consideration "So he technically has two lovers? Or at the very least, gems who are fighting for his affection. That's quite the situation." She looked up at Morion and sighed "As much as I want to try to spin this into a positive light, I'm not sure how. I do agree with you, I feel like Bloodstone is going to have to choose a side. Which one and how things will go when that happens is entirely up to him. I think you know that's what has to happen, yes?" She pats him on the back and smiles "I'll try my best to be here if you ever need someone to talk too. I seem to be good at listening when needed"
Morion rubbed the bridge of his nose with frustration
"We are genderless shapeshifters, but he is affected by his... don't know... mood? Maybe thats the catalyst. His mood. His male persona is called Octavian. And sometimes he is in a female form, called Octavia. Now, I know we are shapeshifters, I was several things, including female looking, but in his case I think this gender fluidity as he calls it, comes from the fact, he is an Experiment. Possibly an experiment. There is no proof, nor rebuttal... just a strong possibility. Anyhow, I think he is quite close to become a split personality. Like Zerul. But for the moment, Bloodstone insist, he is "one", not two Gem. But I saw the signs. I am sure Octavia is almost a separate presonality... I always refused to use his "names", just called him Bloodstone or Heliotrope to keep him on this side of sanity."
Morion shook his head
"He can't even be loyal to her home, our Empire... it is not a big surprise, he can't... or don't want to be loyal to his lovers. He is an Independent, free spirit...."
But the Smoky Quartz was bitter
"I don't think this whole situation even have a positive light Lady Chyrsocolla... Poor Bloodstone is heading for a disaster, and I can't stop him, nor save him. this is his "fight". And I am afraid he already lost...."
Morion returned the hug, but it was more of a gentle embrace and smiled a bit
"Thank you for your kind words Lady Chyrsocolla...."
"Fascinating..I've never heard of anything like that to be honest. I mean I'm not saying that's impossible he could be an experiment but..oh I don't know. I'm no scientist or psychologist." She sighed and looked up at Morion "I'll make sure to keep that in mind though if I get to talk with Bloodstone at some point. Some spirits simply need to run their course before...well, not being free" Melody smiled back at him and nodded when he returned the embrace "Don't mention it. Again, if you ever simply need someone to vent or talk to, I'm always willing to do so. I find that I can be a bit comforting to gems who just need someone to listen to them."
"Earth is full of insane Gems and Experiments...."
The Smoky Quartz murmured with sourly voice
"Actually you can't throw a brick without hiting one on the head...."
Then Moiron nodded
"Maybe you are right. Maybe Bloodstone is just needs to get this out of his system... who knows? "
He smiled a bit
"I guess the greatest of artists knows when to sing and when to stay quite and listen. You are truly one of if not the greates Lady Chyrsocolla! And... uhm... You and Bloodstone... you are friends? Know each other? If I may so bold to ask..."
He bowed his head humbly... ...but since she was in his embrace, Moiron's head bumped against Melody's ^^
Melody blushed and smiled when Morion accidentally gave her a headbutt "It's quite alright. It didn't hurt anyway." She giggled and sighed "No, but that doesn't mean I can't become friends with them. I'm always willing to make allies with someone, provided that they appear to be nice and all of that fun stuff." Chrysocolla shrugged "You may be right, but I don't know if I'm still the greatest of all the artists or whatever you want to say...you really like complimenting me, don't you?" She smirked and couldn't help but giggle softly "I mean I'm ok with that and all but...you're the only one who's given me this many compliments before. I'm flattered, in all honesty. I really am!"
"Look... looking for allies is one thing. Not a crime. These are desperate times! Here, on Earth there is the Corruption. Who knows, maybe an unfinished biological weapon, an Experiment or even a malevolent entity that escaped from imprisonment, we don't have enough information to be sure what the Corruption is.. as far as we know it, it could be Alien in origin, like us, or maybe the Human's secret weapon against US... If you noticed, Corruption only affects Gems. Not Humans. Or plants. Or anything from Earth...! And then there are the Rebels. The Crystal Gems! Either is enough reason to seek out allies! But choosing the wrong presons could mean you doom! Stay away from the Rebels and just to be sure, the Independendt Traitors too M'Lady! How would you explain to your superiors or even a Diamonds a friendship with a "criminal"?"
Then he smiled a bit
"I am... I am just afraid you might get in trouble... You are an unique and wonderful Gem! And aside Lady Carbide, the only sane that I know..."
"I understand...I'll keep that in mind Morion, thank you. As for the Corruption...I feel that it is a weapon or an Experiment. If it really is some sort of entity then I feel that it would require some sort of hive mind or something along the lines of that. I mean how else could it try to infect so many gems?" She shrugs and smiles "I can tell. You should try to stay out of trouble yourself. I don't want to hear about you getting hurt at some point or another. After all, gems like us have to stick up for each other, right?" Melody giggled and smiled "I'll have to meet this Carbide at some point. She sounds nice from what you're saying"
The smoky Quartz nodded with a warm smile Then realised Lady Chyrsocolla, Melody was still in his gentle embrace^^ He quickly let her go with a blush
"Lady Carbide... I have the utmost respect towards her. She is an Experiment... she never denied that fact. She is a scout and she is Her Majesty's, White Diamond's Grand Inquisitor, his excellency, the exalted Opalite's friend and companion. Sadly Lady Carbide is an Independent Gem, like Bloodstone. But I think deep in her heart she is a Loyal Gem. Just went a bit native... Earth have this strange effect. I too developed some sort of feelings towards Earth. But the Gem Empire, Homworld is the first, my feelings are the last"
Melody blushed and smiled "It's alright..." She sighed and nodded when Morion gave a bit of explanation on Carbide "I see...may I ask just how she's an experiment? I'm curious as to how gems would try modifying a scout like that. And I do agree, this planet does seem to have an effect like that with the gems that have stayed on here longer. How or why is another question but it's at least not the corruption so I suppose it could be something much worse." She looked up at Morion "I understand. I do still hold Homeworld above Earth but I must admit, I find myself a little bit fascinated with the humans. It's impressive how their species had acclimated to the planet like this"
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.
