As the Peridot began to sing, Blue found herself tapping her foot. Then she realized this was about Howlite and quickly stopped. She put her hand over her mouth. This was how they saw Howlite? She knew his defect was a sore subject for him. They had a song about it? No wonder Howlite was the way he was. How can you be comfortable with society when society teases and mocks you? Blue remembered all of Howlite's stories from his past. She began to slowly put all the pieces together. Now she understood the full story of Howlite. As she thought about his suffering she frowned. Then the Peridot said they were there. She quickly smiled and got hyped up. Ok gang! Let's break into pairs so we can cover more ground. I'll make the groups so there's no complaints. Flint you're with me. Pearl you're with Crys. And Flurry you're with Howlite. Let's go!
Sapphire said nothing. He would most likely solve the problem differently, but he wasn't going to object. This was was after all and in was you had to take... unpopular steps. Though Howlite was crazy psychopath, that was dangerous to everyone. Someone who should be bubbled and put somewhere safe and on Homeworld he would be, long long time ago. But this wasn't the time nor the place for that kind of thought. They had mission ahead of them...
"And what are we looking for exactly?"
Since most the time he barely paid any attention to his noisy companions he was now a little short on details. It was purely his fault and he accepted it as such. Hopefully Pearl was listening more closely.
As the Peridot sang her song he started to growl. He didn't want her to stop driving though. So he waited. Soon as she said they were there, he snapped her neck and grabbed her gem. He put it in a bubble and gave it to Blue. Sorry you all had to hear that. I would've poofed her earlier but I had to wait till she got here. Anyways, Sapphire to answer your question, we are searching for injectors, schematics, anything that could get the Kindergarten working again. If you find anything destroy it immediately. Last thing we need is an infinite army forming on Earth. We'd go extinct. If we fail this mission then all is lost. Then he summoned his rifle and rested it on his shoulder. Come on Fllurry you're with me.
Flurry's expression turned into one of horror. She grabbed her ears and her face scrunched up.
"No! No! Noooooo! " She squealed in agony as the Peridots sang. Their voices were like fingernails on a chalkboard. Every time a syllable entered her ears she shook. Curling into a ball she whimpered as they sang, it was the worst singing she had ever heard. Perhaps she was overreacting a bit, but the singing was far from pleasant to hear. Eventually when she had just about had it Howlite silenced them. She sighed in relief. It was then that Howlite called her name. She looked him in the eyes.
"Yeah I'm with ya Howlite! " She smirked. "It's just the right thing to do! "
Light stayed calm during the whole song. It wasn't maybe the nicest thing to hear... but it defnitly wasn't as scary as what Howlite did after they were finnaly in kindergarden. Howlite destroyed Peridot's physical form and bubbled her gem. Who knows how long she will be stucked there. Day, month, 20 years, 1000 years? In moments like that Pearl was thinking if rebelion is doing right thing.
Pearl looked around. They were in the grave yard. It used to be place full of life, nature. Now it was a broken facility, full of shattered gems by rebelion. Crystal Sqpphire was wondering what they are gonna do "You see, we are gonna-" However Howlite started explaining "You got your answer."
"I guess it is time to go. The sooner we will finish this job, the sooner we will leave this terrible place." Light walked away with Crys from others.
Light was looking at the ground with quite sad expresion. He was also grabing one of his arms. Suddenly he turned on the bakelite radio that was on his belt and started singing (this really is a musical thread)
Flint patted Howlite on the shoulder. Hey look at you. A Crystal Gem already. I'm glad you didn't kill her. You know she was wrong right? You're not a monster. Sure you're wild and crazy but I like that about you. You are just the kinda guy we need on our time. You've got that Mad Max ingenuity. That's why you're on this team. I didn't pick these gems Howlite. Just something you should think about. He turned to his girlfriend. Let's get going baby. He took her by the hand and walked her out into the Kindergarten. He looked around at the holes. Shoot Blue, judging by the holes, they aren't that much older than us. In fact... I think we might be older. Think we'll find any old memories here?

Blue smiled when Flint talked to Howlite. She often felt bad for him. Howlite was only a bad guy because that's all he knew. They pushed him and forced him into a cold killer. All because he was different. It wasn't fair. Howlite was crazy yes but he was so sweet. He and Flurry became friends like 5 minutes after meeting. Could he really be such a bad guy? No. It was illogical. She laughed when Flint told Howlite he was like Mad Max. Then Flint took her hand. Shall we? They walked out into the Kindergarten. Then Flint mentioned old memories. We've been here before Flint. Back in '16 we did a map of this place. Give me a sec and I'll get it. She used her hologram to project a map. Mostly nothing. Too bad I can't see recent activity. We'll have to search on foot.
Sapphire listened to what are they actually looking for. A quick flash of light suddenly flashed across his visor. He adjusted his position slightly, then pointed seemingly at nothing.
"It's this way..."
He proclaimed like he was certain.
"Let's proceed that way, Pearl..."
He said stoicly, completly ignoring her song. His former Pearl also had the uncanny ability so sing for no apparent reason. She also cried a lot. At some rare moments she also sang while crying... this Pearl seemed different, but acted similarly enough.
"I could just extract said needed information from that Peridot... not that it would help us now... I suppose now we will have to search this place thoroughly... "
He said. It appeared that he wasn't looking around at all...
Howlite's cheeks turned white with a blush when Flint complimented him. "Yeah yeah. Let's go before it gets too dark. Come on Slugger." He led Flurry into the canals of the Kindergarten. "Hey I'm uh.. sorry you had to see that. I don't like snapping necks in front of my friends. I just got so angry. That song tortured me for most of my life. I couldn't go anywhere on Homeworld without hearing that song. That's why I lived in my ship. I bounced around so much that I never stayed on a planet for more than a few months at a time. Kept me from going crazy. Well crazier at least. You spot anything we could get rid of?" He wanted to get back to work.
Flurry noticed Howlite's reaction to Flint's compliment. With a mischievous smirk she crept up behind Howlite and leapt onto the back of his head, latching onto it with her arms and legs. She giggled playfully for a while.
"Howlite's a crystal geeeem! " She squealed. She then quieted down as he started to speak. Her smile turned into a thoughtful look. "Yeah... that song does make me go crazy... "
She hopped off of Howlite and looked at the kindergarten in horror. She slowly turned toward Flint.
"Y-you mean we've got to go in there!?" She waddled over to Flint, who to her seemed to be the biggest gem in the party. "C-Can you carry me? Not that I can't walk this place is just a bit- "
Suddenly a few rocks fell and Flurry squealed in fear.
Light felt like this Sapphire was nothing different from other Sapphires. The way he was talking and acting. However it was probably just Light's overreacting nature. It wasn't like he is going to unslave him and come back to Homeworld with him. Sapphires see future, it makes them really serious and cold sometimes. That would explain his actions.
Light sighed and followed Crys. Sometimes he was summoning a hologram to use it as a lamp. This place was really dark full of big holes. It was easy to miss something. "I am afraid we might not find anything. I wasn't designed to search in such a terrible place. It is full of heavy rocks. We should have take some more strong gems with us."
Flint looked down at the frightened Flurry. "Sorry kid. I gotta go with Blue. But you know who's good at carrying people? Howlite. He'd protect you just fine. He's actually an even better fighter than me." It was something he didn't often admit too but it was true. Howlite was older and more experienced in fighting. Shoot Howlite said he was batting 1000. That meant he was twice Flint's age! He shook the thought and held Blue's hand. "Let's get going. I say we go left." His voice was unusually commanding. Weird. Must've been the Kindergarten bringing out the Quartz in him. Something. He led her through the canyons searching for any sign of loyal activity. He used his enhanced vision to search through the exit holes that he was too big for which was pretty much any non Quartz one.

As Flint took charge, Blue purred "ooh yes Sir." She took his hand as he led her around the canyons. "I like this new you Flint. You're so commanding. You're so hot when you order me around. Give me another task. Anything." She felt so giddy. Back on Homeworld, Flint was so tough and dominating. Then she got captured. Once she came back Flint had changed. She wasn't sure if for the better. Sure he was nicer but he wasn't so firm anymore. What had happened to the Quartz within him? Luckily he seemed to be reverting back to his old self. She just loved it. Soon she spotted an injector. "There's something Flint! Over there. It's an injector. I wanna see you smash it!"
Sapphire walked forward without talking. It almost seemed like he doesn't even try to acknowledge Pearl's presence. Then he just stood there, motionles, waiting. After a while he kneeled down and put his hand on the dead ground. He stood there motionles once more for several minutes. Then he just stood up.
He proclaimed. If he's done something, it was probably to subtle to be noticed. Then he finally turned to Pearl, looking at him through his visor.
"It is irrelevant what you were designed for. You're no longer on the Homeworld, you're on Earth now. Here nobody can tell you what to do. Every gem, no matter how expandable on Homeworld, is created with the ability to adapt. If you choose to become strong you can... we got rid of shackles of the Homeworld... get rid of shackles in your mind and you can achieve the impossible. Remember that..."
He said. Then he turned around and walked slowly back.
He lifted her up and put her in a piggyback ride. He smiled as Flint left.
"Don't you sorry Slugger. I wouldn't let anything happen to one of my own. Come on. "
He started walking and noticed the holes made from gems.
"you know sometimes I'm jealous of these guys. Had I been made on Earth like they did, I might not have been made defective. I wouldn't have been crazy. It's rather cruel of whoever sent us to involve me. Flint said he didn't choose. Then whoever thought it was a good idea to put me on this team is more nuts than me. What could any team possibly gain from an assassin? Aren't rebels against that stuff? My entire skill set is useless. "
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
