The Communication hub loomed above her as she approached it. Sitting crossed-legged on a little cloud she slowly floated to the large structure. For being malfunctioned it seemed in very good condition, this worried her. If homeworld could freely commutate with the gems on earth that would be a problem. Her mission was to investigate it to find any way that it could be reactivated.
Of course, this mission wasn't very crucial to the crystal gems, as they were confident that it was shut down for the time being. The reason that she was sent on the mission was simply to pacify her to make her feel better about being on the weak side for crystal gems. Her combat abilities were nonexistent and she was with a team of gems who were overprotective of her. The only mission that she could hope to receive had absolutely no danger and was barely necessary, but at least she didn't feel entirely useless.
She hopped off of her cloud and moved closer to examine the structure. She ran her finger along one of the pillars, examining the texture. All seemed to be normal, so she started to stroll into the hub. She hummed in a high-pitched voice as she looked around. She pulled a small bag of peanuts from her backpack and started to eat them. A rock fell nearby, the sudden noise caused Flurry to scream at the top of her lungs. She turned but no one was there, adding to the sense of fear that she felt.
Light realized that warp pads and his old ship wont work, no matter what. He decided to check the comunication hub. "I hope there wont be any crazy gems like before in warp pads... I hope nothing like that will happen to me again" Pearl have no luck, it looks that there is arleady someone here. "Oh my... what do I do?!? Please dont be hostile... I can hide here or just say something. There are not a lot of gems on this small planet. Someone need to be friendly! and my protocol that Peridots added to my gem say that I need to contact someone if I am lost." Pearl approached nervously to stranger. "Hmmm hello? Please dont kill me!" "Hmmmm hello?
Flurry raised an eyebrow at her new visitor. Her appearance was of a human child with pigtails and only wearing an oversized shirt with a star on it. It confused her that this stranger who appeared to be a pearl was fearing for his life. She paused for a moment, trying to think of a decent reply, but nothing came to mind. She decided to do what she could to cheer him up and make him more comfortable. She started by giving him a warm smile.
"I'm not hostile at all! I'm white spinel, but everybody calls me Flurry!" She said, twirling her hair. It was apparent that she had a hint of a British accent. She produced her cloud and floated up to the gem who was most likely a pearl. "What's your name? Are you a crystal gem too?"
Pearl thinks that she is friendly. He calm down a little and bowed low "Hello master Flurry" In homeworld Pearl was forced to act like that everyone who isnt Pearl or other specie than gem. However after Flurry mentioned Crystal gems he start panicking again. "Wait... what?! You are Crystal gem?!?! There are more of you?! Oh no no, I wont let you hurt me!" Pearl used magical wind, he finnaly learned how to use it. Weird green wind boosted his speed. Light have menaged to hide behind nearest rock. "Uffff... I think I have lost her, I am fine. Calm down, overreacting is never good option..." Pearl started crying. "Why this happen everytime... I just want to have calm live, stupid crystal gems, stupid homeworld. Why nothing can be alright."
Flurry paused for a moment, trying to understand what had just happened. The pearl had fled when she said that she was a crystal gem, this was new to her. He had leapt behind a rock to hide, yet did he know that Flurry had no combat abilities whatsoever. She couldn't hurt him if she tried! A moment later he heard him crying. Saddened Flurry found him by following the noise, she floated to him on her cloud.
"Oh... please don't cry, I don't want to hurt you, crystal gems don't want to hurt anybody who likes humans. I wouldn't want to hurt you either way though, I'm not much of a fighter anyway. Also, I'm nobody's master, you don't have to call me that... you can just call me Flurry. What should I call you? " She asked, concernedly. "I'm just here on a recon mission, not to fight anyone. "
"Crystal gems dont want to hurt anybody...? That is new. You should tell this to Pearls in my old workplace. One of them nearly died because of your attack on my old workplace and now she cant regenerate. They also attacked ship I was in. They didnt know who are we but they did it anyway. Because of that I am stuck here alone!" "Oh my... I should not yell. What is this planet doing to me?!" Pearl feel bad that he was yelling at peacefull gem. "I am sorry... My name is Prototype of Mocha Pearl nr 0000001. They call me Light thought. Why did you come here? You know if that comunication hub is working? I am trying to come back to my old work place"
"Oh..I am so sorry about your friends! I'm sure that there was a misunderstanding, I don't want to hurt anybody at least! I don't know why crystal gems would attacks those pearls, homeworld pearls don't usually hurt humans so I don't know why I'd want to fight them. " Flurry said, considering this. "W-Well you aren't alone now right? You've got me! " She smiled, but her smile quickly became awkward as she thought about the injustices that her people had committed.
"No it's fine... everybody should be able to show their emotions... It's not healthy to bottle them up like that... " Flurry said calmly. "I came to check to see if it was still broken, good thing that it is! if it wasn't then homeworld gems would be attacking me right about now... hee hee... Well, I know you want to see your friends, Light, but it's great that we aren't getting attacked right? You wouldn't want us to be hurt right? "
"They werent really my friends, but it was my life and I miss it... it is nice to see that there are gems like you." It looks like Light isnt so sad anymore. He thinks what to do now. "There is no way I am coming back to hw, is it? I wont waste my time, If I cant do my old job I will find other. It is terrible to not feel usefull" Light look at the sky "Do you believe that everyone is here for a reason, that everyone was made for something, not to do job but for something bigger and more important. I heard that this your Quartz leader think it works like that, what was her name... oh I remember Rose." Pearl check out time on his radio. "Oh look at the time, it is late. You better go back to your friends, thanks for everything mas- Flurry"
Flurry smiled as he called her by her name. She stopped smiling quickly, her face became serious.
"I never met her myself, but I really think that everybody has a purpose... I think that you can help someone too! " She said, smiling. "I think you`ll like your next job a lot better than this one, this time you`ll be able to do whatever you want... well except for hurting humans but you wouldn't do that!" She said smiling.
She then thought about his next statement. "Yeah I should be getting back... oh wait! Why don't you come with me? We can find you a good job with us! They won't want to hurt you if you're traveling with me! "
"You mean... going to crystal gems? Pearl looks scared. He was thinking: "I CAN DIE THERE. But I dont think they would hurt anyone infront of eyes such an innocent gem" Pearl took big breath. "If you say so, I can give it a try. I mean, what can go wrong, right? Haha..." Pearl turned on radio, classic from 1980 is playing. "Oh you will love that one! Let's go, I am ready!" Pearl was smiling all the time since they go, even thought he was scared. while they were doing this he was asking himself in mind "Is making other gems happy her special ability? I am not sure why would someone on hm create gem like this one.
"Ooh! Human music!" Flurry said, recognizing the music type. "Oh...this is very old huh? I like older human music the best. New human music hurts my head when I listen to it." She giggled. They started to walk toward the warp pad. Flurry took notes on her mission.
-Status: Malfunctioned. additional note, found a pearl(non-loyalist) I'm bringing him back with me, he's safe. ~White Spinel
With a press of a button she submitted her misson data on her interface. The moon shone overhead as they walked onto the warp pad. In order to warp Flurry had to use all of her strength to hop three times on the center of the pad, for some reason, she couldn't trigger it naturally. A beam of light shot down on them, the next second they were gone, already at their destination.
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
