The forest was very cold at night. It was very quiet as well, the birds weren't even chirping. Occasionally one could hear the sounds of insects in the trees. Rarely one hoot from an owl would break the silence. Like the tide, the silence continued to flood the forest like an unseen force. The trees that usually were beautiful during the day seemed twisted in the dark and foggy clearing. Roses of many colors could be found on the floor, growing from the grassy flower beds. They looked oddly out of place in the foreboding environment.
Suddenly, all of the silence was broken by the sound of rustling leaves. The night wasn't windy, but something was blowing the leaves. Sulfur hung in the air as he floated like a phantom. His feet didn't brush against the leaves but they did stir them. Landing in the center of the clearing he pulled something from his pocket. It was his phone. Putting in his earbuds Sulfur started up some music.
"Gotta make a move to a town that's right for meeee! Town to keep me movin' Keep me groovin' with some energyyyyy.
Weeeeell, I talk about it, Talk about it, Talk about it, Talk about it! Talk about, Talk about, Talk about mooooovin!"
Dark jumped swiftly through the trees. It was a Dark menacing night. The woods looked creepy and mysterious. It was now when Dark typically roamed the forest. It was now when no humans were here. Dark landed towards a clearing. Where Sulfur had told him to meet up. Dark turned on his phone and shot him a quick text. Hey Im here. Where r u? Dark walked closer to the clearing. There was a light up ahead. Dark drew closer. It was Sulfurs phone. Along with, of course, Sulfur.
Hey, there you are. So, why did you want to meet out here?
Sulfur hadn't told Dark most of the details. Or the subject for that matter. Sulfur had just told him to come out into the woods, at a clearing, and that he would meet him there. It had been a very... brief discussion. To say the least. Dark briefly checked out his surroundings. It wasn't a very large clearing and him and Sulfur were near the center. In the distance insects were humming. It was a very peaceful night. Of course, knowing Sulfur, that would probably soon change.
The visual screens would then start to form as Blue would be inside one of the sectors in her hideout, there it stated that the micro-ships found something, Blue would have her hands behind her back while saying," Hmm.. Lets see Maximize and Enhance.." she says firmly towards the systems in which it done as she said. There it showed sulfur and the dark spinel she had a fight with long ago, it seemed as this was the gem he spoke of, she would then narrow her eye while lifting herself up and walking out the motioning sensing doors. Blue had the perfect place for the meeting, which would be her general office area which had a large round table with series of large chairs around it which was good for seminar like discussions, either way it was fine. Blue would then head towards a door that had a number panel to it, she would then press a few buttons in which the voice activation would be heard near her area," Farewell Blue Quartz we hope you return safely" the systems said as she fled out the door which was a secret passage way towards the forest.
It was a dark night, not too many creatures unless nocturnal came out, she would then continue walk through the forest with a neutral expression with her hands behind her back, it seemed as a bit of fog spewed throughout the area in which then she would start to chuckle slightly. Suddenly she could hear a noise, it was faint however she heard it, forming a visual screen from her visor she would flip through it towards the micro-ship's cameras viewing both sulfur and dark from a far. She then calculated the distance she was from them and surprisingly it was close, she would vanish the visual screen and started to smile as she seen them both," Greetings Sulfur, and greetings to you Dark.." she'd say in a softly sapphire like voice as she finally made it towards there little gathering.
Sulfur had just received a text when Dark Spinel walked out of the bushes.
"Well hello Dark, it seems you found your way out here. This is the only clearing for many miles, this is a thick forest. That is why my directions had no need to be specific." Sulfur said, nodding. Before he could speak again the silence was broken again, this time by Blue Quartz's voice.
"Why hello Blue, it seems that you are already acquainted with Dark Spinel." Sulfur said. He smiled. "Brilliant minds think alike so to speak!"
Sulfur then turned to Dark.
"This, as you most likely already know, is Blue Quartz." Sulfur said, gesturing to Blue. "She has been my affiliate for some time now and we are working on a use for the shards I collect in shatterings. You like a good shatter as much as I do... so I do believe that the three of us will be a very capable bunch."
He turned back to Blue Quartz.
"You can explain the experiment to him, it was your invention."
What experiment? And what use could gem shards be to Blue and Sulfur. What use could gem shards be to anybody? He did have a lot of gem shards back at the temple. So if the experiment was good. Maybe he could donate some. And the gems all shattered in the burning room. He could probably make a large contribution to whatever experiment Blue was conducting.
Yes. Me and Blue have, met...
Dark thought back to their little battle. Hopefully everything was good Wasn't much of a battle now that he thought of it. It was more of him just avoiding her plant creations which kept reforming.
So, she was a Blue Quartz. A high ranking gem, of sorts. Of course, Dark would still outrank her back on homeworld. Sulfur had mentioned allying himself with some homeworld gems. But when Dark had met her she seemed to be somewhat, in-between? Dark had never really wanted to stay with the Crystal Gems. And many of his new friends were independant. So he could be to. The Crystal Gems were binding. But Homeworld was worse. He would be independant. But for now. He better stick with them, there were still a few useful things they could do for him. Now that they weren't battling. Dark could see more about her. She looked more like a sapphire than a quartz. Dark wondered if she could see the future like a sapphire. Anyways, Blue acted like everything was good between them. But the experiment what was it. With the gem shards? Dark was stumped.
Blue remembered it all, his evasive moves in which then she could only think towards herself to not snap at this gem for annoying her at the time, however the past is the past so she would push that aside and look towards the future, sulfur seemed to introduce the topic of her discovery she has been trying to make for several months now it was a complete success, first starting at the Prime Kindergarten's Incubators she would expand her research towards this remote vegetation wonderland well in the general sense it is however at night it seemed creepy to most. Blue would then nod towards Sulfur and turned her attention towards Dark Spinel," I've been working on uses for gem shards in which I discovered something new, Gem Mutants, the combined gem shards form something far beyond corruption itself.. there mindless creatures only seeking to find there broken pieces to become hole again.. I have manipulated them to do my bidding currently and working on stabilizing there forms to make sure they are capable in combat.." she'd say softly while walking away towards the direction of her hide out.
Blue would then turn her head as she walked," Let's go you two.." she'd say calmly in her sapphire like tone while gesturing her hand back and forth in indication that she wanted them to follow her back towards her base. As she continued to walk throughout the forest it wouldn't take long for them to reach the waterfall, she looked up while narrowing her eye," Hmm.. we shall not take this way.. ill let the water fall be for now..." she'd say while going around to a vined up door. Blue would glow her eye in a lime green variation which resulted to the vines to move out of the door's way, she would then walk towards the glowing blue panel and inputted a code along with the scanning of her gem," Welcome Back Blue Quartz, the room is ready for you as requested" the systems would say while opening the door as well. As blue knew they would follow her she would head inside walking through the halls with her arms behind her back not saying a word till they got to her office.
The more shatters she could get the better as she would have enough trust in sulfur to show him her top-secret gem mutant experiment she has been working on that would change this planet's ecosystems along with all the life through out it.
As Sulfur walked down the halls he turned to Dark.
"You see, what Blue Quartz does here is phenomenal. We like to shatter gems, but once they're shards then the fun is over. Shards are mere objects, owning them gives me no thrill. Well they were mere objects... until Blue Quartz' experiments." Sulfur smirked. "She is making use out of remains, leftovers of our conquests. As we destroy, our army is built. Blue isn't into shattering much, nevertheless we do it for a pastime. That is why we make an amazing team, we all have special talents that complement eachother. With these gem mutants and with our combined strength, who can stand against us? Not homeworld. Not the diamonds."
Sulfur smirked in pride, remembering Dark's hatred for the diamonds. Sulfur harbored plenty of that himself.
Yes, that sounds excellent. An army would never hurt to have in possession. Speaking of Homeworld. Isn't Blue still working for them.
Blue had just disappeared around the bend. So hopefully it was okay to talk about her now. After all, they were in her base. So having a fight in here would not be a good idea. Still, the thought of all those shattered gems back at the temple forming an army to fight for them. It was a great idea that Dark hadn't even considered possible. Dark wondered what the experiments could look like. He also hoped that Blue wasn't to vexed with him for that battle. He was guessing that she wasn't with Homeworld anymore. If she was she probably would have shattered, or at least poofed, him right when she saw him.
As Blue continued walking through the halls, it came towards her mind again, the cluster, a artificial gem mutant fusion filled with millions of gem shards combined together, it could be dangerous for the planet however it was all just for science, she wasn't going to actually incubate it for sure as it wasn't ready yet. Blue didn't have millions of gem shards either so she had to collect more over time to even get that close, as she paused for a few seconds she turned towards a glowing panel to show Dark what she has been working on. This was Sector C's gem mutants which were combined with nothing but Quartz gem shard gem mutants, she would swipe the panel forming a floating control pad in her hand, on the wall it glowed showing a transparent clear window in which through it you could see them, her creations, filled with arrangements of body parts it was horrific for those who are of first sight, they screeched and yelled while some hopped up on the window banging on it as they were able to sense gems for some reason as well.
As gem mutant body would have a mouth on it in which it ejected an eye from it that busted towards the window however it didn't done any damage as her technician skills were remarkable seeing perdiots doing it for thousands of years. She would then close her eye then opened it and turned towards Dark and Sulfur," here are the latest I've been working on, Quartz, there unstable now however I have something I created that can keep them in line.. Most of the gem mutants are obedient now however I still do other research to improve them.." she'd say softly while swiping the screen and vanishing the window reverting the wall towards its normal state. Blue would then have her arms behind her back while walking towards a door, it seems to have a hand panel the size of blue's hand," Here is where the meeting shall take place.." she'd say while placing her hand on it opening the door. As blue went inside she would then head towards a giant chair sitting down, a glowing panel would be on the table where she would press a button to send all but three chairs away underground.
Blue would then be settled and move her hands out," Please sit, lets begin this meeting, Sulfur you've summoned us to accept Dark within our group correct, lets proceed on that matter" she'd say while having her hands locked together gazing upon sulfur.[/font][/i]
Sulfur walked through the halls with his affiliates. He didn't consider them as friends for personal reasons, but for some reason gems thought of that as rude. He shivered with excitement as he entered the hall. He felt as if he could almost sense the gem mutants around him. As Blue's creations came into view Sulfur smirked at them excitedly. He turned to Dark with excitement still in his eyes.
"Behold! The Gem Mutants!" Sulfur shouted. "Aren't they glorious?" Sulfur didn't flinch as the eyeball bashed the glass. He seemed impressed. As Sulfur entered the room that Blue had designated for the meeting he took a seat at the farthest seat.
"Actually, I was affiliated with Dark Spinel before we met." Sulfur began. "He is quite an interesting gem and will be of much use to us."
Dark stared in amazement as the the eye smashed into the glass. He had never known that shards had such potential. And to think that these monsters could be essential to his plan to topple the Diamond authority.
Wow. They're... Amazing.
Dark then stepped into the room Blue had opened up after Sulfur. He sat in the last seat available. In between Blue and Sulfur. This place was teched out. Dark wondered how long it took her to make this. A couple of weeks at least. Dark disregarded the fact that his question was ignored and just assumed that Blue wasn't allied with Homeworld anymore. He supposed that he could probably become independent now himself. Or become part of this group. It sounded like they wanted him to. Sulfur did anyways.
((Thought you were talking to sulfur, my bad Dark))
Blue would then nod towards Sulfur, she was indeed in need of spreading this team," Ah yes we could always use more gem shatters, we had some scars in the past and I'm willing to put that behind me, if your of use then your welcomed I approve him as well, welcome to The Broken Gems warrior" she'd say proudly while then getting up from her seat, it was time, she trusted only sulfur for now to show him what she was working on secretively. Blue would turn towards Dark while clapping her hands," Pearl, enter the room as I want you to escort Dark Spinel to the Training Bay" she'd say softly while having her arms behind her back. Blue would then look towards Sulfur," Come with me, I wanna show you something" she says while heading out the door as the green pearl opened it for her. The Green pearl looked towards Dark Spinel and bowed," This way please.." she'd say walking towards the right pathway through the halls.
If Dark Spinel followed her she would lead him to a door in which then the green pearl spoke," Training Exercise 2.0 commence" she'd say softly in which then suddenly the door glowed sky blue, as she walked inside she gestured her hand forward in indication she wanted Dark to come with her inside. All that would be present is a giant room field with iron, electrical pulses symbols ran all around the floors and walls in which then she would pause," Battle Sequence 1.5 Now..." she'd then say in which the room formed iron quartz soldiers from the floor. They would stand straight in a line in which then Green pearl turned towards Dark," Test your might against them, they shall not attack you unless you oppose as a threat, lets see what you got" the pearl would say walking away towards the wall watching what he may do towards the 10 iron quartz soldiers.
Meanwhile Blue would walk the halls of her hideout hoping that Sulfur followed her, as she would then head deeper under ground it took about 20 minutes to get there while walking, underground she would pause as the great door would be present, suddenly series of weapons ejected from the ceiling and walls pointing to sulfur," Intruder shall not pass!" said the system. Blue held the bridge of her so called nose and lifted her head up," It is fine he is with me...." she says a bit annoyed as she forgot she added that feature to guard her experiment, as blue opened the door using her palms dust fluttered throughout the moving doors. As blue continued to walk inside she would clap her hands, lights of sky blue variation flowed throughout the large room," This, is the cluster, a combined gem fusion currently up to thousands of gem shards, this vicious thing could break the entire planet into nothing if I had about a million or so, planetary destruction is what I like to call it as if formed at a certain state it would be able to be even bigger than the collided gem shards" she'd say softly.
The Giant ball of gem shards would be in a enormous cage of electoral magnetic waves, enabling it to not form, she would then turn towards sulfur," This isn't something I plan to use frequently rather it is a last resort for this planet, using this will cause all life on this planet to die killing everything.." she'd say while closing her eye in pleased that she has gotten so far with gem mutants.
Sulfur raised an eyebrow, confused as to why she wanted him only. Shrugging and smiling he stood and followed. As they walked it seemed that they got deeper underground. It was difficult to tell how deep underground they were as the entire base was a building. After twenty minutes they had apparently reached the deepest part of the fort. He paused with Blue Quartz in front of the great door. Several weapons emerged from the ceiling aimed at him, but Sulfur just looked at them with a bored expression.
Sulfur smirked as Blue Quartz seemed to share annoyance at the security system. He walked in, this time prepared to be blown away. It seemed that out of all of the gems he had met, the only two who could truly fascinate him were Morion and Blue Quartz. He looked at the cluster with wide eyes.
"How did you acquire so many gem shards?" Sulfur asked. "This has to be the remains from at least three million gems!"
Dark looked around the room. He estimated about 10 iron quartz soldiers. Dark rushed forward towards the one at the farthest side of the room and summoned a large hunting knife. He kicked straight into the quartz soldier and it bent in an unnatural fashion. He then jumped to its backside and plunged his knife into it. It ripped open and the top half fell off onto the ground. The other 9 Quartz soldiers started rushing towards Dark. Dark kicked the toppled Iron Quartz's top half towards the crowd and it knocked back two of them, leaving a large dent in the first. The other one threw the toppled quartz off of him and rushed back towards Dark. The crowd was closer now.
Dark jumped into the air and activated one of his flashbangs. It quickly reflected off of all the reflective surfaces of the Metal Quartzes creating a giant flash that blinded and off put the sensors, the quartzes, and the pearl. Dark dove down to the crowd. He then began his rampage. Cutting up the rest of the quartzes in various fashions.
When the flashbang cleared there were pieces of metal body parts scattered across the room. No quartzes were left standing, or living. For that matter. Dark walked towards the pearl who had just recovered from his flashbang.
The Green pearl would gaze upon his movements and attacks attentively in which she would have her hands clenched together, as it seemed that the training would be over she begged to differ, snapping her finger she would then speak," Grow.. Separate!" she'd then say loud in the room. Suddenly the iron quartz soldiers would form into an ooze of goo, the goo would flow in a spiral motion then reforming into a giant form of the quartz soldier approximately 20ft in height it would then raise it's giant feet to attempt to stomp on dark. Pearl would pull her palm towards her chin, thinking of the flash bang he'd send in which cause a bit of light blurs towards her vision," hmm.. so he is indeed useful, quite the quick kind though I see.." she'd say mentally towards her self while still watching him to see how he would react towards the giant towering iron gem soldier.
Meanwhile Blue and Sulfur would be having a dialogue about her experiment, Blue would started to tilt her head down looking a bit sinister, she herself had a bad past, the truth was that she used to shatter gems all the time while on homeworld just for the sake of researching these gem mutants, she has been doing this since she came out of her kindergarten and as been doing it in secret for thousands of years in which then she would pause for a bit. Blue would then lift her head gazing at Sulfur sternly," Your not the only one with a bad past..." she'd say while then turning towards the cluster," Thousands of years ago it was only a thought, then it grew to this.. Its impeccable.." she'd say softly while smiling a bit at her creation.
Melody: "The fight system of this site is really Ehh..." Well... how would you improve it? ^^
Oct 14, 2019 17:53:41 GMT
Flurry: I think that theres not much that can be done in just, regular rps, I think before a fight both sides should agree to do it, and decide the winner based on logic, because otherwise we're doing this "Hey im really cool" thing that goes back and forth
Oct 14, 2019 19:51:03 GMT
Flurry: I made Flurry cause id rather have a support/non fighting character anyway
Oct 14, 2019 19:51:31 GMT
Chip the Fire Opal: I have Chip who is a killing machine... and Sapphire who couldn't fight a broom
Oct 14, 2019 19:58:03 GMT
Flurry: Ive got Sulfur who impales people with a lot of swords, and Flurry who cant even heal people without being on the verge of collapse
Oct 14, 2019 19:59:04 GMT
Light: so... You think the fight system is bad, but you also don't know how to improve it? I understand what you are trying to say, but it is something that roleplayers should take care of. Admins can only tell you that the way you play is wrong or ban
Oct 17, 2019 16:38:04 GMT
Light: the trouble maker responsible of the mess
Oct 17, 2019 16:38:21 GMT
Rat: Speaking of moderators, when should I expect my character to be judged by the judgment fairy?
Oct 17, 2019 19:31:47 GMT
Rat: Welp, guess I'll die.

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
