It was sunny day, Light was working in his gem room. That room was rancho with small house. He loved that place. It was not posible to think about something sad from past in here because it was so peacefull. No noises, no pollutions. Just few animals, house and ranch, it was everything what Pearl wanted. However he was thinking about adding few plants there to make small garden. Sadly he did not know that something like flower shop exist. Without telling anyone he took everything that could be usefull in his journey and went to forest far away from temple and beach city. He also spawned 2 holograms. One of them was Holo Pearl as companion and help in holding everything. Other hologram was like small source of light with wings, it was suppose to search for rare plants and say something if enemy was near. He was traveling all the day, night came. Pearl decided to use his old tent as shelter and made campfire because it was really dark in the woods. He sit on the rock and started watching fire.
The forest was particularly beautiful compared to the city, he had business at Empire city, but needed a break from the big city. Strolling about the forest he controlled his footfalls, making them so graceful that the leaves under him weren't even stirred. He saw an apple hanging from a tree, there were many apples, but one in particular was special to him. He swiftly but silently impaled the apple with one of his blades. In the same motion, he lowered the apple to his mouth and took a bite. He didn't value human food, but he felt like he could enjoy the moment, since this was what humans did in the forest.
As the sky darkened, he started to smell smoke. He then started to follow the scent, hoping that it was only some sort of forest fire and that nobody was nearby. He say high in a particularly tall tree, hidden by the leaves. As he looked down he saw what appeared to be a pearl making a fire, with some sort of cloth cage. The master of that pearl must not be entirely right in the head... Sulfur watched from a distance.
The light, such an eerie glowing light emitting an amazing reflection throughout this planet, it was nothing more than the moon a place where pink diamond led her small group of gems, Blue would be quite content today as it was special to her, she was feeling good as if homeworld may finely raid this earth and finally take it. Nonetheless she was still in her good mood, as she would walk throughout such a none populated area which was a forest her eye beamed in delight seeing the intriguing vegetation, she would examine a few daisies along with a roses which caught her eye by the colors. Blue would then chuckle a bit while getting herself back up from kneeling to see these plants, suddenly she would hear something not too far from her perimeter, this resulted to her heading in the direction of which she heard this sound. Even as the night was young she was still able to see by her visor, blue would then tap the side of it while speaking a few commands, a visual green screen would emerge with white diamond's shape symbol on the center. As her visors screens locked on a few gems she would become a bit skeptical," Hmmm... here.. well that wouldn't be such an surprised, wide space to evade others, all the organic food one can eat, a stable resource of photosynthesis in which able to grow more of this food.. " she'd say softly speaking towards her self while examining the screen. She'd then press this side of her visor once more and start to hold her hand upon her chin contemplating on who these two may be, due to her scanners not being close enough she wasn't able to pinpoint a correct image or name of what is around her.
Blue would then pounce up upon a near by tree swiftly planting her feet on it to not make any noise, she concentrated and stayed focused, Blue would then start to vanish, through each tree branch she planted her foot on it seemed she just kept moving until finally she got a better view. There it was, a fire, she was of close distance towards the two gems and wouldn't believe what she saw, a pearl on its own, all she would do is narrow her eye upon the gems examining," Whom is his owner, he possibly couldn't be by his self unless... this gem.. maybe a rebel... or a lost homeworld pearl" she'd say mentally in her head. Blue would then close her eye while front flipping off the tree and onto the ground, she would be right at the so called camp site where the pearl sat on the rock, standing in front of the gem all she would do is stare down upon him however she darted her eye towards the right turning her head slight a bit finally speaking," Hm? I see someone else joined the party.. Sul?" she'd say knowing it was him by her spotting him while she was moving along though the tree branches. Blue would then look back at the pearl why stating the obvious," So I see you made a fire, where is your owner? did this gem command you to do such things..?" she says with a firm tone. One thing Blue hated was rebels however another would be pearls who tried to act as if there are there own gem, Blue's pearl had obedience and never would make a fire without permission in which is why she is not given punishment like other pearls are in homeworld.
"I don't think we are safe here holo#1 (that is how Pearl call holo pearls), prepare for posible attack. I will try to calm down and rest." Pearl was siting on that rock, thinking what will happen now when he became Crystal gem. It was hard for him to join after all that years being servant for hw. If not gems that he met here, on Earth, he would probably be still old not confident Pearl on hw side. They helped him realize that he was for hw just an old model of low ranked gem. After a while Light heard something. He was getting really nervous. Pearl grabed his gem weapon. Soon two gems appeared, "Whhhat?! Who are you?! I don't want any problems, leave me alone!", one of them, big blue gem warrior, probably quartz asked Pearl about his master. He was even more nervous. Light knew now that they are hw gems and they probably hate crystal gems. Light decided to not tell them about his side, "My master...? Oh right he is... ummm... he asked me to find some Earth plants so he... hmmm could make... garden for great white diamond? Yeah, that is what he wanted me to do, nothing special!".
Sulfur instinctively summoned his swords and looked at Blu as she appeared near him, he then put them away, recognizing his cohort.
"How did that nickname stick... I suppose nothing can be done about it now." He said with a monotone voice that showed no emotion. As Blu continued to talk aloud she got the pearls attention. Fantabulous. "Well here we go... I suppose we've made ourselves known, so much for investigation from a distance." Sulfur said, rolling his eyes and approaching the gem.
"Pearl... it is not safe for your kind to wander too far. I know that you are not under White Diamond as she is gaining assistance from her own pearl far from here to fight off the impending threat to your world. If you are here you either are under a Quartz, or a Peridot." Sulfur hissed, approaching Light. "Also, I don't know quite what any of the diamonds would want with earth plants, so please, stop lying as you are terrible at it." Sulfur was levitating about three inches off of the floor and had his head turned, only looking at Light from the corner of his eye.
Blue would start to frown upon this pearl, she knew all too well of the simple lies rebels spoken of to get out of situations as such, she would then start to fold her arms behind her back while walking back and forth not keeping her eye off the ownerless pearl," So you mean to tell me.. a pearl.. your owner told you.. to get plants for a possible garden for white diamond whom is far busy for even the likes of such things.. My Diamond also hates organic life, she only adores her geo-weapons.. such a fib crystal runt.." she says while looking upon them gem with a serious glance. Blue would then circle around behind the pearl while stepping back a bit," Sul.. such a bat, I'm sure you'd like to do the honors of dealing some punishment to this ownerless crystal runt however id like to get some info out first.." she'd say with a devilish smile gazing upon a batch of roses with prickly thorns on the stems, lifting her hand and glowing her eye lime green she would lift the miny thorns forming it into a thorn sword, its sharp ends delighted her most definitely. Blue would then instantly swing the thorn sword around the fire, circulating it around and around till wind gathered to blow the fire into the air forming it into nothing but grey dust. Surely the fire would cause the area to become black or darker, Blue would then see if this gem would get as to be so scared to flee from the site, Blue loved a good chase and would surely use her beloved forest to her advantage.
Blue would look down towards the ownerless pearl while saying," Pearl, do we have to do this the easy way or the pursuit way, your choice, give me problems and ill shatter you where you move..." she says calmly in a sapphire tone. Blue normally would start to battle any rebels she saw however she was on a good mood today with all the vegetation so she simply would give the gem a chance to give some info up before she goes off and do further things.
"I am not giving you any info, I know you will shatter me sooner or later... I just want to do last thing before dead." Light took headphones from his backpack and wore them "There are one of the first things I found on Earth, I want to wear them one last time...Ohhhhh I changed my mind. There is one thing I want to tell you before end of my worthless life... Holo... let's dance." Small hologram came from tent. Hologram that was suppose to be alarm now was weapon. It played really loud music and was flying near Faces of Quartz and other gem. That gave Light enough time to summon four Holo Pearls to battle and prepare for attack. After that Little hologram run away to the sky.
"I am scared, I am fragile but I am not coward! Show me your moves! Other Crystal gems will be here soon. Be fast if you want to shatter me!".
Sulfur paused for a long time, staring into light's eyes. After the pause had ended he bent back and started to laugh hysterically. Gripping his stomach as he laughed, his eyes teared up, and his laugh had several gasps in it, making it very unsettling to listen to. After he finished his face suddenly contorted into a scowl and he glared at Light.
"I don't know who you think I am, but I am not afraid of those pitiful, soft, dreaming gems. They are simply fantasizing that they can defeat the diamond authority, they have dominion over several Galaxies, don't you know?" Sulfur said walking toward light. "Your people are weak, your ambitions don't make sense and you've rushed into a war you cannot win! That simply exposes weakness. You know, Blue Quartz and I have been searching for the rebels, and you've just brought them to us! If you weren't so willing to be shattered then I would be thanking you!"
Sulfur summoned his twin blades.
"I doubt you're even strong enough for me to enjoy this..."
As some sort of hologram thing would be sending sounds to try and distract her Blue would simply ignore the weakling as she didn't need to destroy it just yet, however blue thought that since its so small and does such things it may be a spotter for the pearl. As light would then start to speak blue would look towards sulfur laughing at him, she would then look back at the pearl sternly while giving off a slight smile," Id, be laughing like this too if you'd didn't make such a fool out of yourself, acting as if you can be something than what you were made for.. despicable.. your a pearl, nothing more than someone's appliance if you will.. you deserve nothing more but to be shattered.." she says while gazing upward as the hologram would try to flee from the area, blue folded her arms and crouched a bit.
Holding that position for a few seconds she would then release herself bursting into the air like a rocket, holding out her hand she then gripped the minor hologram and squeezed it instantly reverting it to nothing but digital specs of dust. Blue didn't need anyone spying on them, as she would fall downward she would then plant her feet down while gazing upon the holograms," I'll take on these digital things, I'm sure you can take care of the ownerless pearl.." she says towards sul knowing he was far capable of taking this traitor down. Blue would then glow her belly gem summoning her mighty shield, pulling her top body back a bit she would launch the shield with a force in speed greater than 65mph, this cause her shield to head towards one of the holo pearls and vanish there spirit like bodies one by one as it bounced off in the correct moment she'd plan it would.
These holograms were nothing more that these human's piece of paper compared to a Elite Quartz Soldier, Blue would then have her shield in her grasp as it came back towards her, she would un summon it while crossing her arms awaiting for what sulfur had planned for this pearl, seeing that more crystal gems would surely be coming was splendid, more gems to shatter or be held captive. Blue would then start to cover her eye with her bangs similar to a sapphires in which then she would gazing upon the moon light sky," Don't underestimate this one, my scanners say he is quite a fast one when it comes to being evasive, however I want to see some agony a bit... its your choice indeed though" she say lift her hand up while turning around.
Light see he can not win with them. He needs to wait till fire will be gone and than run. "Crystal gems is my real family, I will protect it with my own body. HW just wanted me to be slave and than kill me because there was better model, stupid Mocha Pearls... you are nothing but Pearls in eyes of diamonds. We are not so different. They will get rid of you if you will be damaged, corrupted or there will be someone better than you. What is the point of being a tool of them? I don't want this life anymore and you can not stop me!" After that he drew his stick, run in to Sulfur and tried to get rid of his weapon. Ne used some old dance tricks to avoid enemies attacks.
Sulfur had a glazed look in his eyes. He slowly raised his arm so that it was extended in front of him. With a flick of his wrist he summoned a circle of blades that orbited around him. Floating about a foot off of the ground he simply waited for Light to arrive. As Light approached him, three of the swords crossed. When Light was about ten feet from him, Sulfur flicked his wrist. This caused the three crossed blades to violently ram Light into a nearby tree.
"...What you said is true, I was disposed because a Sapphire can see the future and I can not. You must learn to survive when the world is against you, it is a test. A pearl like yourself will definitely fail this test. Just stand still, you don't want to suffer do you?" Sulfur said, flicking his wrist and causing his three stray blades to return to their circle.
This pearl was indeed the chatter box, it goes without saying that Blue would've been found out his identity even by the amount of words spoken by this gem, Blue would start to arch her blue bulge," Funny, being disappointed of your upgrade huh, if you were even the slightest bit of useful you'd show your owner that your far capable than your superior upgrade however you lacked work ethic due to such rebelling, I wouldn't call it being a slave, it depends on the person owning the pearl, rather more of a essential tool" she'd say while gazing upon light. Seeing that the pearl summoned a stick was hilarious, blue would then glow her eye in a lime green color holding her hand out, in which by her nature manipulation she would then attempt to use it to form wooden chains that would try to circle around the pearl to capture him. Blue would then grin as to see that sulfur released the blades from him, she would then snap her finger on her right hand using the near by tree he would be at to form two tree hands extending out the tree, she would then maneuver them with ease to try to grab his arms. Pulling Her thorned sword she had back from the fire she would then use her finger and launch it forward pearl in indication that the thorned sword would head towards the abdomen of this pearl to attempt to poof its physical form.
Gazing upon sulfur she would then start to chuckle a bit," be careful, these gems fuse with each other, by the statue there fusion can be highly impressive no doubt, so if we see another one of those crystal runt we must take them out to prevent them from fusing so easily" she say calmly.
In the distance a high-pitched voice was heard. The voice gradually became louder and louder, it eventually became a yell. A small White Gem with pigtails dashed into the clearing on what appeared to be a small cloud. As she stood her legs wobbled, apparently the speed she had moved at shook her up. Her shirt was the only clothing item she wore and it stretched all the way to her thighs, stopping right above her knees. On the shirt was a star, the Emblem of the Crystal Gems. She dashed in front of Light.
"You leave him alone! I'm Flurry and I'm a crystal gem too! I'm not gonna let you guys hurt my friend!" Flurry said, Glaring defensively. "Just go and pick on somebody your own size!" This of course was directed toward Blue Quartz, since Sulfur was barely taller than Light.
After all these enemies attacks Pearl is really tired, he use his weapon to not fall. The only thing that is keeping him alive is being scared what will happen after he will be poofed. He was just going to give up everything when he heard familiar voice, that was Flurry. "What is that sound...? Flurry?! You need to run, they are too strong. Don't think about me, I will be just fine! Run now! You still have time!" Light started to glow, weird green wind covered Flurry. After that showcase od his ability he turned to homeworld gems "Leaver her alone, I am the one you want to shatter. Just end what you started and still be diamond's worthless minions."
"Observe, this is exactly what I was referring to. The crystal gems are nothing but a pathetic bunch of dreamers who accept any weak or defective gem they meet. Accepting the weak makes you weak... it's common logic." Sulfur said walking toward Light. "Do you want to know what I truly despise? I despise false hope, hope without any true motive. This is the real world, heroes don't exist, the weak fall and the strong succeed. It's just that you don't want to accept the true fact that you... are weak." Sulfur continued walking.
"Your runt needs to learn how the world works, I'd like nothing more than to demonstrate right in front of her." Sulfur said, glancing at Flurry. "I suppose I was wrong... I really will enjoy this!"
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
