Howlite was sitting on the docks watching the ship's come and go. "Humans." He scoffed. "Always going from somewhere stupid, to nothing at all. Pathetic. No wonder I have no problems with them." He started to reflect on his progress in the hunt. So far he was down to 4 rebels and not a single fatality. Made him rather upset. He then realized something. They're in Beach City! Never once had he seen the rebels leave town! If he looked he figured he could find a quarry or two. "No more distractions. This time I mean business." He put on his hood and drew his rifle as he made his way to the city.
It was beautifull day in beach city. Ships were swiming on he big ocean, children were playing and sun was shining. 3 Crystal gems: Flint Quartz, Blue Emerald and Light Mocha Pearl decided to fight for Earth and every living creature on this planet. However they decided to eat something in big donut first though. Well everyone except Pearl, he still hate eating. That is why he bough orange juice instead "So juice is sugar, fruits and some other things that are not healthy? Humans won't stop suprising me. It would be better for them if they just smashed orange... it taste good though." After a while Light started talking about them protecting humanity. "What will we do now anyway? What is our plan?"
Flint took a bite from his donut. "Well best thing to do is just play this defensively until we have the strength in numbers to take on Homeworld. Until then we hold the line here. We see any Homeworld gem we either convert them to the cause or if they refuse, kill them." He finished his breakfast and looked out the window. He wondered what Homeworld was doing right now. It seemed like just yesterday he was a common Quartz, doing whatever he was told without questioning anyone. He's glad those days were behind him. Now he's happy. He looked back to his friends. "How about you guys?"

Blue took a sip from her coffee. "Flint's right. We have to make our stand here. If we tried to take the fight to them we'd be cut down where we stand." She watched Flint stare out the window. She knew he was thinking about Homeworld. He then asked her about her thoughts. "Personally I say we go out. Just us. If there's no situation let's not create one. Until such time as we find a Homeworld gem we should just live our normal lives." She finished her coffee and threw the cup away. What would happen to this planet if they lost? She didn't like thinking of it so she pushed it away.
Howlite scanned the streets when he saw a face he hoped he'd never see again. Flint Quartz. A rebel dog who was convinced that Howlite was one too. He just kept running into Flint. As if Fate just wanted him to kill Flint. It was understandable. He had to eliminate all threats to the Diamond regime. All rebels must die. He looked at the Quartz. He had his girlfriend, no surprise there. He then narrowed his attention to the Pearl next to him. Flint owned a Pearl? No that was impossible. He had to be a rebel as well. So he too must die. Howlite let down his hood, put away his rifle, and walked into the building. "Hey guys, long time no see."
"Do we really need to kill anyone? Can't we just bubble them? You never know what can happen. They might be helpful later. I know it is dangerous... but wasn't Rose Quartz against behaviour like this? Well... now there are not any hw gems here anyway, let's just end our drinks and food." After a while Pearl noticed stranger running in the hood for 3 seconds in the window. "Strange... Who was that guy?" Pearl was thinking who could it be. Than door opened, they could see gem Pearl never met before. Stranger acted like he knew them. "Hello.. should I recognize you? I don't think we have met before." Pearl knew there is something weird about this gem, he tried to not overreact like usually though.
"We kill whoever's necessary. Then an old friend walked in and Flint smiled. "Howlite! How've you been buddy?! We haven't seen you in a while. Oh right you've never met. Uh Pearl this is Howlite, Howlite meet my new friend Pearl." He pulled up a chair for him. He just couldn't believe it. Howlite seemed to always run into him. He thought it was so funny. They met so many times through pure coincidence that it was ridiculous. He looked over to Pearl. "Howlite here was there when I found Blue. He's a good guy and you'll warm up to him."

"Rose did disapprove of that. How about we poof and only shatter if absolutely necessary. I'd honestly prefer to bubble them since I can heal gems who aren't shattered. I can't heal the dead." Then Howlite walked in and sat next to them. "It's been a long time Howlite. How's it been? I hope you're doing well?" She looked around the restaurant to see if anyone else was here. Nope just Howlite. "Don't worry Pearl, Howlite may seem cold but he's a good guy. He's pretty cool." She smiled at the thought of having everyone together. It made her happy knowing that she had friends.
Howlite smirked. They truly believed he was their friend. It was humourous how stupid they were. They trusted anyone who spoke to them. It certainly made his job easier. "Thank you guys. And Pearl I look forward to getting to know you." He looked at Pearl with soulless eyes as he plotted his next move. Obviously these 3 would best him I'm combat. He'd have to eliminate them I'm a way that won't attract attention. His rifle could do the job but it was only one shot at a time. He then saw Pearl's gem. Rather unique compared to most Pearls. Prototype by the looks of him. His shards would fit perfectly in his collection.
"If you say so. He can't be that bad if he is your friend... I guess." After Howlite gave Psarl that soulles look he was scared to death. Because of that He started panicking in his gem "Oh my stars! I am gonna die, I am definitly gonna die, there is no hope for me. Okay... calm down Light! There is nothing to be afraid of, Flint and Blue would not be friends with someone that is terrible person. Why he is looking at me gem like that?!? Oh no no no, I don't want to be that guy's new decoration or trophy or who know what else... I need to be careful, that guy is weird." while he was thinking about it he was sitting akwardly and his face looked like he is going to die soon.
Flint noticed that Pearl started getting nervous. "Hey are you feeling OK Pearl? Don't be afraid. Despite Howlite's creepy appearance he's actually pretty cool. That's what always threw me off. He's got those cold dead eyes kinda like a shark's eyes but he's so kind. You've got nothing to worry about." He grabbed another donut and took a bite. "What say we go somewhere? Hey Blue maybe we could go to that place in Keystone. You always liked it there didn't you?" He smiled. He hoped Pearl would eventually be less afraid of Howlite. It would be much easier that way.

Blue laughed. "Oh yeah he's quite the card. Every time I see him, I think of Jaws. His eyes were always a conversation starter. He seems to look straight through your gem. As if he can see into your soul. Makes him great at poker. He's the kinda guy who it's great if he's your friend and scary if your enemy. Luckily he'd never wanna harm us." She heard Flint's suggestion about Keystone. " Really Flint?! You mean it?! We haven't been to that hotel in ages. We could rent a room, bring some tapes, and be just like the old days."
Howlite heard them describe him to Pearl. He gave him a malicious smile. "That's right Pearl. I'm your friend. You can trust me. I'm an ally." He began plotting who was to be shattered first. The safest bet was Pearl. A gem like that.... Invaluable. That's why he liked prototypes. There's no shards like it. Every Pearl he'd ever killed had different shards than this one. He was determined to have them. "Yes let's go to this hotel. It'll give us nice privacy. It's far away from all gems." Which meant no rescue for the soon to be dead rebels. Howlite licked his lips in anticipation.
"Now that I think about it... maybe I would stay here in temple instead, with others? They could need my help in cleaning or something. I dont't think you would need me in hotel. I will just be problem for you. 4 people, it will be really expensive and... what if crystal gems will need my help in ship fixing or...ehem... I am scared of big cities." Pearl was trying to find as many reasons as posible to stay in beach city with crystal gems so he would be far away from Howlite in his gem room, closed. Now Light recognize gems like him. When he was in his old work place in hw a lot of gems were coming to get new weapon or ship. Howlites were not the nicest gem to work with. While a lot of gems weren't nice to Pearls Howlite's were not nice to anyone that wanted to help. They would rather do everything by themself's.
"Come on Pearl. Have some fun! They can handle it without you. Besides you have Blue, Howlite, and I to protect you. Between my pyromancy, his marksmanship and her healing powers, what could happen?" He looked to Blue. "We may need to head by the bank before we leave. I've got roughly 3 grand sitting in our account. I've been saving for awhile exactly for this." He walked up to the counter and paid for everyone's breakfast. He also gave the waitress a tip. "Don't worry Pearl we'll keep you safe."
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
