He skipped over to the empty stage where they host beachapalooza. He made sure no one was looking and he set up a microphone stand " testing, testing, 1,2,3" " Okay my name is Flint Quartz and I'll be performing for you this evening. I'm going to start with some Ricky Martin and close with some Turtles." As the lights came on he did his concert although no one was there that he knew of. He began to sing " Livin' La Vida Loca" As they music started he began to dance as he sang. As he sang his mind filled with old memories of Blue. He then not knowing it began to ignite. His body started to catch fire as he relived his happiest memories.
Hiding amongst the crowd, acting a bit suspicious, Rocky observed the flaming gem. He also appeared to be a Flint, just like he is. He never thought to see another gem of his kind so soon on Earth. He started keeping note on this gem's strange behavior considering that he is a fierce warrior and not meant for this act of tomfoolery. He thought he was am emarassment to the Diamonds and their army. Psh! He is making a fool of himself! No warrior of Homeworld has ever acted this foolishly. He thought as he pulled his fedora over his face so he wasn't noticed by the other Flint. He pulled a notebook out of the pocket of his trench coat and recorded his thoughts and observations.
As Flint finished his concert he bowed then exited the stage. He stopped in his tracks when he saw something in the corner of his eye. He wasn't sure but he thought it looked like a gem. He went through the ground and after signing at least 100 autographs approached the gem but he didn't want the gem to know he knew what he was." Well hello there sir, I hope you enjoyed the performance." He then turned to the crowd and shouted " okay shows over, everyone go home" He then studied the mysterious gem and asked kindly " you new to the city?" " My name is Flint and may I ask yours?" He then held out his hand in a handshake to greet him. Inside he was thinking" he must be from homeworld. If he tries to capture I'll burn him to ash,... But he may know where blue is. Ah I'll let him live, maybe."
Being a bit frustrated that is cover has been blown, he didn't really show it. He put his notebook back into his trench coat pocket. "Yes, I am new to this city. And I know you are a Flint Quartz, just like I am. Also, I have never seen a soldier act this outrageously before. Well that's just my opinion." He hesitated for a moment, but he kindly accepted the gem's formal handshake. "One of the primitve lifeforms here call me 'Rocky'." he stated. He then takes his notebook out of his trench coat again with a pen. "I have a few question to ask. Hopefully you are generous enough to lend me your time. Now, have you know the location of the communication systems and galaxy warp?" he asked patiently, ready to take notes.
He studied rocky and formulated a plan. "Perhaps if I show him the broken galaxy warps I can ask him if he has blue." He thought to himself. Yes, it was so simple, show him the warp - it's broken anyway, and as a reward ask for her location if he knows it. So he chose his words carefully. " Tell you what since you liked my show so much I'll take you to the galaxy warp. However once we get there I shall make a small request. But first let me clean up." So as he cleaned up the stage and put his microphone, he summoned his javelin. "Just in case there's any dangers such as bears, wolves, or hostile gems. If things get bad I hope your suit's fire proof. Ready to go?"
He took more notes on what the gem said about the galaxy warps and also took note of possible hostile gems. "Whether it be 'bears', 'wolves', or hostile gems, I am sure they are no match for two quartzes. And if there are any hostile gems, it would be worth interrogating them." he said as he summoned his hardlight revolver from the square gem on his right hip that is covered by his trench coat. He spun the cylinder and it made some slight clicking sounds. "Fret not, I am good with fire. I am a quartz like you. I have been created for these types of situations." he reassured as he straitens out his trench coat and pulled his fedora down to hide his face.
"Alright here we go!" Flint started to hum as he imagined what would happen if Rocky knew where Blue is. He could finally free her and leave forever. But then he began to think of what if he doesn't, and he started to have a frown on his usually happy face. "Get it together Flint you've got a job to do." He thought to himself. He smiled again and turned towards Rocky, " I'm Flint and I will be your tour guide on this fine day. Our attraction the galaxy warp is now ready for public release and as we get there, music will be provided by Flint Quartz, so without further ado, let's get going." He then shot Rocky a thumbs up.
Flint began to walk and play the role of tour guide for Rocky. He then decided to lighten the mood with a bit of music. He started thinking in his head which song could appeal to this gem. "Hmmm.. well since you've never really heard music before, I'll just take a pick of what I think you'll like." He racked his brain to find the perfect song. (Which one for this gem? There's so many of them. Let's see.... Oh yes perfect.) He thought to himself. "Okay Rocky here's one called 'ain't no mountain high enough' I think you'll enjoy it. Flint began to sing his song as he guided Rocky to the Galaxy warp. "Hey buddy, uhh before we get there can I ask you a question?"
Light Mocha Pearl is siting behind destroyed warp pad. "What now? My old ship is broken, warp pads are broken and I was created to clean. How am I suppose to survive here?!?!" Prototype of Pearl started crying "It is fault of crystal gems. If they didnt shot my ship I would probably have hard but posible live in Home world!" Pearl realized he is not alone. Ship is in the sky, it will probably land soon "Oh no, there are two options. One, they are crystal gems, they will shatter me like others. Option two, there are home world, they will sold me and only bunch of rubies would buy me, just like before. I dont like this sìtuation" There was pillar, Pearl decided to hide here hoping that noone will saw him. "They are coming, I need to be quiet or it is game over"
Flint looked around the pads. He wished they worked. He didn't often admit it but, he grew tired of the loneliness of not having Blue around. He then saw a figure atop a pillar. "Look at that... Is that a gem? Um Excuse me?! Reveal yourself?!" He didn't want to seem aggressive. After what's been happening... He could use a friend. He walked around to find this mysterious stranger. "I'm not going to hurt you! I'm Flint and I wish to speak to you!" Hey checked the warps to see if he were there. "Please! I only wish to talk!"
"Uhhhhh please dont hurt me! Stupid nose, if it wasnt so long you would not find me" Lighft Mocha Pearl is nervous but at the same time he see that this stranger dont have any kind of weapon in hands. Maybe he is pacyfist. "Are you gonna hurt me? You are from homeworld? I see that you are Blue diamond's..." Pearl started to think "Maybe he will take me to her, I heard in my old workplace from other gems that Blue diamond is the kindest of all diamonds" Light stoped overreacting and tried to calm down, he probably didnt even realize that Flint was talking and arleady told his name. "Okay... I think I need to calm down. Sorry, what can I do master... excuse me, what is your name? I never saw gem like you" Pearl realized how he is suppose to act to other gems, he land to the knees. Light thinks "Because of my panic I wasnt listening to him... better use that old junk from Rubies ship" He used machine to remember last few minutes. "Flint huh? I am prototype of mocha Pearl, aka Light mocha Pearl. Gems call me Light thought." "Sorry... I am overreacting for no reason."
Flint smiled, at least until he heard the name of his diamond. He then grew a scowl. "Your one of their goons?! I no longer serve the diamonds. They took the love of my life 43 years ago and I still haven't heard a word about her. You've made a big mistake coming here. 'Cause now, I'm gonna kill you!" Flint drew his spear and burst into flames. He then lunged towards his opponent. "I served Blue diamond for 400 years! Never failed a mission! All Blue and I wanted to do was explore the galaxy on our own! We weren't plotting treason! But now, you've made yourself a powerful enemy today. After I kill you, I'm taking your ship to find her myself." He then thrusted his spear, aiming for the gem's form.
Light dont know what to do, he was never fighting before. "I need to dodge! How?!?!?!" When spear was near Pearl turned white, weird wind is covering him. It looks like he is faster. He managed to avoid the attack. "What the... what was that? Who cares, it was awesome!" It looks like Flint is still here, Pearl is panicking again "It is not like that! Look, I don't want to fight, I dont have ship, I dont have master and I am sorry if I said something wrong! I will do whatever you want, just dont hurt me please!" Light is trying to find a way to escape but it looks like there is not any. He cant think about anything else but how end of his life will looks like.
Flint unleashed a pillar of fire at his target. "You serve Homeworld! You deserve this!" He then saw Pearl's movement. "Your a fast one. Let's see how you deal with this!" He made a ring of fire around them cutting off escape. He then readied his spear for a charge. He lowered his head and brought the spear closer to him to increase momentum. He then charged at the Pearl. His rage was unrelenting. The very knowledge that he worked for Homeworld sent him over the edge. He was not holding back. He intended to kill Pearl.
"I am not serving hw, I am stuck on this planet and noone will come back for me! It is easy to replace me... " Light Mocha Pearl is trying to use power he used before. "Ughhh I cant control it yet, there need to be other way. What if I..." Pearl failed to dodge. He is still not poffed thought. He is really tired. "I wont give up till my gem still have life energy!" Smile of confidence that Light lost long time ago in HW apeeared on his face. He spawn holo pearls to help him fight. While holopearls are fighting with enemy he is standing behind pillar and try to talk. "I dont want to fight, please. Can't we just talk?! My gem... it hurts..."
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
