Flurry had arrived at the Sky Temple. It wasn't often that she went there, but she had scheduled a meeting for two of her friends. She was worried about what had happened during her recent interactions with homeworld, and she was right to be. Her friend, Light Mocha Pearl, had been in the most dangerous city for a crystal gem. The city that was full of an endless amount of Homeworld gems, Empire city. He was taken there as a trophy, but because of Chip, her other friend, he was still safe. She was unsure that the two were completely alright, so she called for them to come and meet her.
Walking in to the Temple Flurry was confronted with several floating chunks of dirt. A gem of her stature would have immense difficulty hopping from chunk to chunk, but Flurry had an ability that came in handy here. Waving her arms she produced a small white cloud. Hopping onto the cloud she floated easily over the chunks of dirt. As she reached the largest chunk of dirt on which the temple itself rested she felt safe to hop off. This desummoned her cloud. She sat in the archway of the Temple, awaiting the arrival of her friends.
Light was jumping from chunk of dirt to other chunk of dirt. It wasn't a big chalange. In the past Pearl used to work for few months in a broken space hw station. The only way to come to certain room was jumping on the floating elements of building. "Woah, there is such a beautifull view. I should come here more often."
It was great for Light to be here. Nothing could hurt him, there was a great wheater and he also could finnaly see a familiar face after a long time- Flurry. She was the one who wanted him and Chip to come here. the point of this was to make sure that everyone is fine. When Pearl last saw Flurry she was in big trouble.

Chip loved those kinds of structures... he could fly so he was able to see parts of those structures that others couldn't. He was watching Pearl jumping while he was flying around.
"Yeah, the view is really nice. I like places like this."
He said. The view wasn't that awesome for him, since he was accustomed to this kind of views all the time... he landed on top of the spire seeing Flurry waiting.
"Hey Flurry, we're here and we are safe. As promised..."
He said once he saw his friend sitting there. It was nice seeing she was really completely fine. He just hoped that the Pearl won't ruin this somehow... after all he did poofed him... by accident, but still...
Flurry smiled as she saw her friends arrive. She first saw chip as he was flying, Light's jumps across the dirt platforms were difficult to see until he was very close. As they arrived however, she became apprehensive. The possibility still remained that they weren't alone. She trusted her friends, but not he gems of homeworld. After a long, careful look, Flurry determined that Chip and Light were indeed traveling alone. She started to smile again but then her expression became irritated.
As the two drew near to her she glared at them and crossed her arms. She looked back and forth between the two of them with an accusing look as if they had wronged her. She sighed in frustration.
Light finnaly made his last jump.Chip and Flurry were arleady there waiting for him. Pearl started running to Spinel to hug her and check if everything really is okay. He still didn't say simple "thanks" to her when she risked her life to help him fight. However little gem made wierd expresion on her face like she was mad at him. Pearl didn't expext that. Flurry was always happy, no matter what"Did I do something wrong? Please forgive me... what actually have I done though?"
After a while Flurry explained "Ohhh... well you know I don't have a clock. Jumping on this floating dirt also took some time. I am not sure if coming here earlier was possible."

Chip just smiled at Flurry with warm smile.
"We got slightly delayed... we had to find a warp pad first... and you know, they don't grow on trees. The next one was in the woods... we got slightly lost... there is a whole story... long story... boring one too..."
He said. It was the truth... mostly at least.
"But we are here, you and me and him... and all of us are uninjured... that's good news isn't it?"
He said... it could ended much worse... especially when Sulfur was involved. That gem was a psychopath... crazy and dangerous... Chip had no idea why Morion let Pearl go... but he was glad he did. Chip hated the thought of any gem getting hurt... well except that crazy Peridot... and Sulfur...
Flurry continued to pretend to be angry for a little while longer before breaking her own façade. She listened to their excuses, surprised that they had any. Flurry giggled at their responses. She then ran and jumped into the air. She greeted them with a violent hug, which was not too violent given her size. She continued to giggle for a while before collecting herself.
"Of course it's good news! I was just joking, I didn't even pick a time! " She said while smiling at them. "It's great to see you guys! "
She summoned her cloud and sat on it.
"So, do you think you can give me the story? " Flurry rested her head on her hands excitedly. "I can't visit Empire City and be safe, so... I need the details! "
"Ohhhh it was such a tragic story full of pain and tears!" Light posed dramatically, some kind of classic music started playing "I woke up in a room but I wasn't alone. There was a big, skinny and without a sense of humour gem named Smoky Quartz aka Morion. I like to just call him Smoky because he doesn't like it. We were... talking about a rebelion, humans, etc and than! He wanted me to join his side, he wanted me to betray crystal gems! But I knew he is gonna use me as servant like he use humans... so I punched him and the battle started! Sadly I got poofed beca-" Pearl looked at Chip. He didn't want Flurry to be mad at Opal so he decided to don't talk about this incident. "-use Smoky used his special attack! Attack so powerfull... I didn't had a change. Luckly my gem fall out of the window to pool of old woman. She tried to sold me! I regenerated in shop full of gems. Ohhh later I met Opal."

So both he and Pearl gave the story a little... additional flavour. Some... minor details might have been left out and some small details were slightly changed, but nothing really important.
"Oh, that happened to me once too... I was almost trapped in the necklace... but fortunately since I was chipped back then I had the space I needed to escape. The woman that wore the jewellery was... surprised to say the least."
Felt like such a long time ago...
"I think the important part is, that you are both safe... seems like there are plenty of crazy gems around you, trying to capture you or worse... that is really strange... why are you so popular?"
Flurry stared at Chip for a long time with a straight face. It seemed as if she either didn't get the joke or didn't feel like she wanted to laugh at it. She quickly gave in and chuckled a bit.
"So you were in a necklace? " Flurry asked, putting a finger on her chin. "That's kind of rough... I've never been in a necklace before. "
She then looked at the Sky Spire.
"Have you guys ever been here? This is my second time here. The last time I was poofed by a huge quartz. " Flurry said, rubbing the back of her head. She then smiled and leaned forward. "I fell down a hole and they didn't find me though... Still, this place is really nice and peaceful. Here, there's nothing to be scared of... "
As if on cue a goat standing next to her 'baaed' very loudly. This caused her to give a quick scream.
Light didn't realize it was a joke "Well... I don't know. I havs no special informations, I am not too overpowered... I guess there are not a lot of Mocha Pearls and I have never met prototype like myself. So only really important gem would have me as a Pearl. However being rare doesn't mean I am better."
Flurry said that she was here before. She told them her story. Pearl didn't expect that, why would someone hurt her and why would she fight with anyone? "What?! You never told me, when did that happen?!"
Suddenly mountain goat came and made some loud noise. Spinel got scared. "Flurry It is just a harmless Earth creature. It won't hurt anyone, right friend?" Light approached to goat, it bite him "Nyaaa!!! Nevermind! Let's leave this gem eater alone!"

"Oh yeah, I spent some time as a necklace... and I would probably be still a necklace if I wasn't Chipped back then... it was nothing pleasant I will tell you. But that was a long time ago..."
He laughed. Thinking about it now felt like it was ages ago... it was like 2 years? Tops... probably not even that long. But it felt like a long time. "Since I can fly I visited a lot of gem structures in the air... some of them don't even have warp pads so only few gems will ever see them..."
Though those were mostly some smaller ones that weren't intended for habitation. He had to laugh when a goat came and scared Flurry and bit Pearl...
Flurry had finally recovered from her experience when she noticed Light get bitten. She watched in horror, turning away to shield her vision from the Goat. She decided to change the subject.
"Well... what was it like to be a necklace? Could you still see and stuff? Or was it like... dark? " Flurry asked, asking a question that Chip may have been sensitive about. She wasn't very careful about what she said. "Could you like do, stuff? Like little things like moving air, or warming up! "
Chip's comment about flying around gem structures quickly stole her attention.
"Woah! Some don't have warp pads!? That's so cool! Were there like, awesome dungeons and stuff?! " Flurry asked, balling his fists in excitement. "You've gotta take us to one of them! It should be easy from here! "
Pearl tried to scare goat with his hands, there was no effect "Fine... stay here you deadly creature."
Light didn't know that there are more gem structures, he actually would love to see them."It would be marvelus to see something new... I usually don't have time to visit places were gem warps are."
He knew that he won't sadly. "Flurry... I don't want to break your dreams but we can't het there. We have no wings and Chip is not strong enough to help us. If he was he would help me back there wih these several floating chunks of dirt. Well... we could change our physical form and grow wings but I am not able to do this, you are?"

"Being a necklace was... well it was a torture... but back then I was still chipped... so being in my gem was actually quite painful.. it's not like that now... I poofed once or twice since I got healed and resting inside my gem was actually quite relaxing... but all I remember from back then was just a pain..."
He explained. It wasn't the complete truth since he also felt like he was "leaking" outside through that missing piece, even though it was just a feeling it was still quite terrifying...
"Sure, there are quite a lot of them without a warp pad... I've been to one that just gather energy from the air for some reason... I was at one beautiful spire... it has a warp pad, but it's broken now... there are a lot of gem structures out there... and I can take you to some of them... but not now..."
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
