The beast charged toward Blu, snapping it's jaws. It was then bombarded by more cactus fists, hurling it into the air. It made an attempt to dodge, but it was of no avail. As the creature frothed around in the air sand was blown into it's eyes. It swung it's appendages wildly, attempting to hit it's unseen target. The noises it made sounded like rocks splitting. It made an attempt to clear it's vision from the sand, but Blu came too quickly. As she sliced through it, it was apparent that it's body had been weakened by previous attacks and now was in a slush-like state. She cut through it like a rotten fruit. The Beast poofed releasing it's gem.
Sulfur looked at it still grinning. "Interesting..." he didn't send it away, he didn't even bubble it. He stabbed the center of it quickly with his sword. The gem shattered after a lot of pressure was placed on it. "Your skill is impressive, even for a quartz. I have never met a beast like this before...but since this desert is so hostile our odds of meeting rebels have spiked. Of course they would pick a place difficult to find, the environment fights for them." He looked at her. "If they're anywhere...it's here.."
Blue would descend down planting her feet down and gasped slightly as she'd see the gem that would already poofed by the monster be shattered by Sul," Hmm.. very well.." she says while then turn around. She'd then started to look around," This makes no sense.. yes there hostile being here that may draw the rebels here but there is no guarantee that we will find one like this.. we need to go where there is life, vegetation, water!, those are the key things to life on this damn planet" she'd say while balling her fist up, she'd then dash past Sul sending a flour of sand from behind her to prevent him from seeing her. She'd then head on a warp-pad and head towards an island, this island had many things; a lighthouse; a town; stores, you name it, she'd then see that she was on the hand of a statue and pounced off it landing on the sandy shore
As the sand covered his vision Sulfur slowly brought an arm closer to his face, shielding him from sand headed toward his eyes. He noticed that the shards were gone, most likely swept away by the flurry of sand. Pity he thought. I was going to add them to my collection. He levitated in the air, and then dropped down to the floor so quickly and forcefully that the sand around him was cleared. "Corrupted gems huh?" Sulfur thought aloud. "Sounds interesting... the game has changed." He desummoned his weapons and looked at the sky. Deciding that there was no use in hanging out in the desert he decided to return to the warp pad.
Suddenly, he was next to Blu on the beach. "I see that you chose a beach because of it's water and vegetation... I would normally jump to the conclusion that you are wrong to judge this way because we don't need any of the resources you described." Sulfur began. "What could also be a possibility is the idea that the rebels favor humans. Humans need these resources and we would have a good chance of finding them here, helping the humans. "...I stand by what I said earlier, I think that the desert would more likely be home to rebels, but if you are in favor of searching here then I will accompany you."
Blue would then be on the san, d she would sniff the air in delight for a bit and suddenly looed back slightly as Sul would be near, Blue would then start to walk ahead looking for these crystal gems. Even though Sul was talking she had to find someone or at least being who seen some suspicion of oddly gems around the area. As blue went further she would see a town, full of stores along with docks, she would start to arch her eyebrow at it all as she wasn't use to seeing things as such back at homeworld. As Blue continue to stroll through the area she would look around not even caring if she was seen or not.
((sorry for the shortness its not much to work with))
Sulfur noticed that Blue was taking none of the necessary precautions at this point. He normally would just allow someone to get seen, but today he wasn't in the mood. He ran and grabbed one of her hands. He looked her in the eye sternly.
"Yes...a human town, would you display some common sense and not walk right into it! What if they see you? I know that you're a quartz soldier, not a sapphire, but it doesn't take clairvoyance to see that coming!" He said, yanking her backward, surprisingly strong. "You might allow that kind of behavior but I will not, I am assisting you on your mission and I am helping you accordingly." Sulfur's gem glowed and his clothing transformed, when he stopped glowing his skin was a Caucasian tone and very pale. His hair was black and he wore human street clothes. "You think you can blend in? I suggest a hood and sunglasses..."
As blue would continue walking staring at the people she'd suddenly feel her hand being grabbed, as she would turn around she would see him staring at her while speaking, Blue then started to blink and looked back at the people. Blue really wanted to go home to where she forgot in an instant all they she was trained to do. Blue would shake her head to get herself together as seemed distracted," Yea.. your right.. " she'd say calmly while turning back, she would start to glow her stomach gem while closing her eye. It seem like a rapid quick sky blue flash as her entire look would be changed, Her hair would be pinned up into a pony tail extending to the lower part of her legs, her bangs were a bit short in the front but long on each side still symmetrical; she would be attired with Navy Blue blazer layered with a teal colored dress that extend towards her ankles; she would have on blue heels the conceal her toes; and finally she have on black glasses that would hide her eye in plain sight. Blue wasn't used to doing camouflage like this kind however still managed to contain herself.
As she looked back to Sulfur she nodded towards him and continued on her stroll through the town, seeing the towering mechanisms that would circle around and around in a repetitive manner, Blue knew of such device which would be of what these humans called a "Amusement Park" this area was full of way for these organisms to continue to have fun which wasn't on Blue's list at all as fun is overrated for simple dull creatures. She would fold her arms and pause for a minute o continue to look around and observe these humans.
"Do you know why they like it? Do you know why they like the spinning cars?" Sulfur said suddenly, looking at Blu. "The speed that the cars move at is strong enough to make them believe that they are falling to their deaths. While humans do not want to die, they want to simulate death. Maybe like all creatures they are just trying to deny that they enjoy the cycle of life, that they enjoy death... I'm not sure if it means that we as creatures of this mortal coil that are mortal ourselves crave death... Uh-sorry about that...just thinking out loud." He smiled and continued walking down the boardwalk.
"So, what is our plan of action? are you suspecting that we`ll find a crystal gem here?" He asked. "There ARE a lot of humans..."
Blue would hear sulfur speaking towards her, as she walked around still observing she would reply toward shim," Of course, these beings use these rides as a source of entertainment, I wouldn't say it would be of the death variety however some have such intentions theses days, humans can be predictable while some unpredictable it amuses me quite" she says with a calm tone. She would then say," They like it because it seems as thought here they have no worries, free to do as they please to escape the world of hard work as some humans don't like to put in the work to achieve greatness" she'd say while looking towards these humans understand them the more she examined how the act.
Blue really didn't need a plan as these rebels were as predictable as some of these humans, all that they really needed was to cause some chaos in the town to simply draw them in, Blue would look back to sulfur while saying," Hmm.. draw them out.. cause chaos if you want.. they'll come or let these humans perish.. so be it" she says while walking away from him to do a little of her own damage to the down. Her dress fluttered as winds picked up, she would then start to look at the plants on the flower shop, as she grinned, a glow would come from her black shades however she would cover them to prevent humans from seeing it in which then the plants started to grow and layer around on another forming into a boot, she would then manipulate the vined boot to stomp rapidly which caused rumbles under the feet's of these humans.
Sulfur crossed his arms and looked at the Ferris wheel. He started to consider whether or not it would be safe to openly attack humans, all of the most dangerous gems he had met weren't crystal gems, and so far the crystal gems were mere pushovers. He wasn't sure if this was the best idea, and he didn't want to burn any potential bridges. He was sure that his quartz acquaintance wouldn't be in the mood to slaughter them herself, so he needed to be discreet.
Wearing his human outfit he walked toward the Ferris wheel. After a few minutes he boarded the ride and waited as other humans took their seats. Once it was full he subtly raised his arm in the air. In doing so, green swords materialized in the air near humans on the ride. Fortunately the Ferris wheel was small so that his ranger could extend throughout the entire ride. He decided to spare three humans so that he wouldn't be made out as the culprit.
With another flick of his wrist all of the humans that had been targeted were impaled by his weapons. He looked around with a fearful expression to feign innocence as onlookers watched the scene in horror. Sulfur was on the bottom car so he could easily exit the ride without giving away his abilities. As he ran from the ride his weapons disappeared into the air. Any nearby crystal gems that had any perceptive abilities whatsoever would have to see the scene.
Seeing that even the slightest bit of harm towards humans didn't draw in the rebels caused Blue to get annoyed, the humans well into the sea by the stomping while others feel in and got stab in the body or face by the thick wood under the dock area. Blue would snap her finger on her right hand stopping the vicious plant, she'd then start to head towards the sea, as she'd step into the water her eye glowed once more. This wasn't the end of her search however she would have to begin else where leaving sulfur behind, a coral hand emerged and grabbed her, as she'd head through the sea the water would then soon settle leaving nothing but destruction of the town behind her.
Sulfur was disappointed, he had accompanied the Quartz for nothing. Quartzes were the ones who took everything from him, at least now they were just wasting his time. If he was to attack a homeworld soldier then the rest of their troops would come for him aswell. As confident as he was that he would survive alone Sulfur decided to wait until the opportune time to attack a homeworld gem, after all, he could never be too careful.
He looked out at the ocean, putting a hand on his forehead to shield him from the sun. He just didn't get the same rush as he did from shattering gems as he did from killing humans. Humans hadn't wronged him, so hurting them didn't affect his emotions. Crystal gems were easy targets, he wasn't afraid of the crystal gem's weak army, but if he sided with homeworld he could satisfy his addiction. He could shatter as many crystal gems as he pleased... but just finding the rebels proved hard enough. He threw an odd-shaped shell into the ocean.
"..... I think I'm going to like it on earth" He muttered under his breath.
Blue Quartz: That was the worst hi ever XD Why ..?

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.
