Dark walked among the colony ships. To think, these wrecks were meant to colonize earth. But the attempts were futile. The Crystal Gems took care of the ships, And every other attempt at colonizing the earth. Of course, the reason they could do that was because Pink Diamond had... business on Homeworld. Now she was sending gems to destroy the Crystal Gems. But any Homeworld Gem who came at Dark could get easily squashed. Shattering Gems was what Dark did best. That was the reason he was sent to Earth in the first place. To shatter rebellious gems. But in the process, he had become one. Dark chuckled at the thought. But then again, he had his reasons. There were some Gems he had never dreamed would become rebels. Including himself, but of course. He was a rebel now. Of course, he was only using the Crystal Gems. Plus, if he could gather an army. He could probably separate from both factions. That would be more preferable. Dark looked around, no gems were here. So far, so good.
"Come on! Give it back! " Flurry shouted, trying to pry her wrench from the feline's jaws. As she had been exploring the old colony ship a cat had gotten it's jaws onto her only tool, a broken wrench. As she tried her best to pry the utensil from the cat's mouth she wasn't have much lucky. Attempting to jerk it's head back and forth the cat seemed to be extraordinarily strong. Flurry grunted as she pulled with all of her might. "Come on... just give me... my wrench! "
The cat did something flurry didn't expect. It suddenly attempted to spit the wrench out. This caused Flurry to lose her balance and tumbled down the side of the colony ship. The wrench had slipped from her hands. The cat calmly picked up the wrench and left the area, slowly swaying it's tail back and forth.
"Oof! " Flurry said as she hit the floor. She turned to see a black gem. He bore a slight resemblance to her, so slight however, that nobody would notice. "Uh... hey, what's your name? "
Dark was just about to leave when he heard a sound of struggling from somewhere behind him. He looked back just as a weird white gem fell onto the ground. The gem seemed to be another Spinel. Oh, a White Spinel. Dark seemed to remember that White Spinels weren't given much respect back on homeworld. Anyways, she had a star on her chest indicating that she was a Crystal Gem. "Uh... hey, what's your name? ". Dark relooked the gem up and down. Seemingly to make sure she was a Crystal Gem before he slacked his posture. He proceeded to help the gem up.
Hello there. My name is Dark Spinel. What's yours?
After helping the gem up he stepped backwards, giving the gem moving space.
In the distance, the sound of a motorcycle's engine can be heard. A red gem was riding it. The motorcycle looks like the ones that biker gangs use. It was going at a fast speed. Red Spinel saw the two gems, so he slowed down and drifted to a stop near them.
"Eh? What is going on here?"
He got off of the motorcycle and he turned it off.
"Who are you two?"
He looked at both of the gems and saw that they looked like spinels like himself.
"Heh, spinels much like myself. Anyways, I am Red Spinel, but just address me as Red."
He saw the star on the white one's clothing. He knew what it meant, but she seems far too innocent to shatter. Plus there would be a witness.
Flurry was scared that the gem would attack her. She had heard a lot about homeworld gems who wanted to shatter her. He however wore a sign that couldn't be identified as a diamond insignia or a crystal gem star. However, he held out his hand and helped her up, a kind gesture. She smiled at him and decided that he was safe.
"I'm White Spinel, but I like to be called Flurry! " She chirped. "That's cool! We're both spinels! "
Flurry examined the new gem. He seemed a bit more dangerous than the first. She felt like if she would be attacked then Dark would protect her. She decided to be friendly to the next Spinel too.
"Wow! Three spinels all in the same place! " Flurry giggled.
Another Spinel? Interesting. The new one seemed to be with Homeworld. But then again, he didn't seem to hostile.
I'm Dark Spinel. But you can just call me Dark.
A Red Spinel huh? This was very Rare. Spinels were rarely manufactured back on Homeworld. And 3 of them. In the same place. At the same time. Flurry basically went against everything a Spinel stood for. Strength, Destruction, Elegance, Power. None of those traits inhabited her. As for Red. He was most likely the other Spinel they sent to moon base with him. To squash the rebellion. Of course, Dark left and shattered most of the other warriors in the base. Meaning that he was one of the few surviving gems. As for Flurry, she seemed to be with the Crystal Gems. So she would be fine with Dark... hopefully...
Red Spinel knew that they were opposites, but this one... this one is so damn cute and sweet. Not really Red's type, but he did have a soft side. He smiled kindly at Flurry.
"Now listen here. If Homeworld found out that I am hanging with a Crystal Gem, the Diamonds would want to personally shatter me. So please keep this a secret between us Spinels. And Flurry, do not tell the other Crystal Gems about this either. Mainly for your sake. I won't hurt you if you do, but there might be trouble with the other Crystal Gems."
He did not want to hurt Flurry, which defied his purpose and his orders. She wasn't a threat, and Red Spinel kind of likes her.
Flurry looked at the two Spinels. She had never seen other Spinels before and was glad that they were good company. She waved her arms and a small cloud appeared. She hopped onto the cloud and sat cross-legged on it. The cloud occasionally swayed back and forth in the air.
"Of course I wouldn't tell anybody! They'd probably be scared to find out that I was with a homeworld gem. You guys are nice though! " Flurry grinned. "Well... I was just coming to look for a little snow globe that I left behind last time I was here... "
"What are you guys doing here though? Did you like... lose a snowglobe too? " Flurry smiled at the thought. "No that's impossible! "
Me? I'm looking around for corrupted gems to shatter.
Dark was sort of disappointed that the other Spinel wasn't attacking. He had always wanted to test his skills against another Spinel, though he would probably win. There were not many gems who could stand up to Dark. The gem was with homeworld though, so Dark was expecting a fight. Unless he wouldn't fight around Flurry. Those two seemed to be getting closer by the minute. Time to break the Ice.
What of you Red? Why are you here?
Dark knew that there could soon be a fight. But Dark was always ready for a fight. But he also knew that this gem was probably always ready as well. Dark looked at Red, awaiting his response.
Flurry was a bit wierded out by Red Spinel's words but she decided to greet them kindly.
"Oh uh... thank you? I guess I'm honored to be one of your precious gems! " She giggled nervously, rubbing the back of her head. She then listened to Dark asking Red why he was there. It was a question she had hoped to get an answer to, so she listened to the response. After her previous encounter with the colony ships she was uncertain that he would want to investigate them. "No! Don't go inside, they're really dangerous and full of monsters! Really tough ones too, last time me and my friend went inside we almost didn't make it out! "
Only after Flurry spoke about the monsters did Dark's words have meaning to her. He was there to shatter the monsters.
"Wh-what did you say you were here for? " She asked, hoping she had misheard.
Dark sensed her fear. And showed especial interest in the fact the corrupted gems were in the ships. He would soon venture into them. Flurry was being especially helpful. Dark doubted that she shared that info intentionally.
Yes, I'm here to shatter the monstrous gem monsters that plague earth. They're called corrupted gems. And their shards could help us figure out whats causing the corruption. And potentially stop it. You know, the monsters you speak of used to be gems like us. They're just infected. And they're is no cure in sight for them. So we, stop them. Before they destroy human society.
Dark gestured towards the ships as he did so. To show that he indeed was referencing the monsters.
He smirked when Flurry was warning them of the dangers of the colony ships and the monsters that may lurk about. He thought that he was about to score his first big game on this planet. He drew his twin crossbows from the gem on his forehead.
"Keh! Danger means more fun for me! I can dispose of the monsters with ease!"
He adjusted his crossbows to rapid fire mode, which altered the appearance of them.
"Just to let ya'll know, I am a professional! I only need these bad boys and my instincts, which are pretty sharp! Also, I am here because I wanted to potentially turn this place into my little hunting grounds!"
Flurry stood on a piece of rubble and glared at the two of them.
"You guys! Listen to yourselves! These monsters... these.. corruptions were one gems just like us right?" She said, waving her arms in the air as she spoke. "We can't just... shatter them! It's not fair! They didn't want to be monsters, it just kind of happened to them!"
She then pointed at the Ship.
"I know you guys think you're tough... you probably are, but it's really dangerous in there..." She said sadly. "All that you're going to get if you make it back out is knowing that you murdered some innocent creatures! Some innocent gems... like us. I don't want you to go in, then the only two Spinels I know will be shattered!"
I won't, can't be shattered by these corrupted gems. They aren't innocent. They kill humans. And shatter gems. We can't just let them run loose. They have to be stopped. They aren't even that hard to shatter. Here I'll show you.
Dark ran up to one of the ships and summoned a large hunting knife. He stabbed it into the ship, making a large cut. He jumped back as a large corrupted quartz broke free of it's prison. It roared at Dark.
Here, beasty beasty beasty. Dark taunted it.
The quartz ran towards Dark. Dark jumped into the air. He landed on it's furry back. He saw it's gem on it's forehead. He rushed forward as the beast jumped around, confused as to where it's target had gone. Dark jabbed the knife into it's forehead. He heard a poofing noise as the beast disappeared. Dark landed on the ground, bubbling it's shards before they hit the ground. He looked back at the ship. The quartz was apparently the only gem in the ship. Dark walked back over to the other spinels.
See? Nothing to be afraid of. Those beasts are nothing compared to our power.
Ruby?: Oh okay, if you want to be in a thread I can make one anywhere, just let me know

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.
