Morion was actually now talking reasonable. Light was no longer sure what should he do "How can we be sure that you will give them this new place to live? How will you give it to them? Your perfect Diamonds will find it sooner or laterr and find out you did this. They will change it to another colony and you will get punishment. I don't belive any diamond would like to have civilisation that could become better than them under their nose. Also the way you talk about me... How can I be sure that I won't become your private door opener."
Pearl looked at the city "I promised I will fight for everything in this planet, hw does not need new colony. I can't betray them... I need to be loyal..."

Now she was becoming unsettled. Her decision to become a rebel felt so incredibly monumental, she felt it was permanent. And yet here was a very real possibility now that she could return back to Homeworld, perhaps even doing what she was doing now. She could perform all these new tasks for Homeworld, for the great Diamonds! Her plans, no matter how crazy, could become reality. Yet... "Tell me, as I must know, if we were to deny you right now what would be your next course of action? I believe I have already made my mind up, but I must know how merciful you really are. Would we be shattered right here and now? Perhaps given a head start before Sulfur or some similar assassin hunted us? Or would you let us go, free to do as we please with this newfound information." Her composure had been regained, and her curiosity had got the better of her.
"I have no reason to double cross my Humans or you. This that simple. The Diamonds never ordered anybody to hurt the Humans..."
Morion reminded them
"Oh, I am sure, the Diamonds will know about this, after all, one or two Sapphire Oracle is enough to see the possible futures... But we are like the continents, the Gems. We are changing sloooooooowwwwwlllllly.... very slowly. Humans visited the Moon not long after they learned how to build an airplane... we are ageless, eternal Gems... with the Time of the univeres so we are not that "fast". I am for example hunting Gems longer than Humanity have buildin cities, yet achived basically nothing. Their lifes are short... barely a blink in the cosmic scales. A Peridot or Bismuth could learn a great deal from them. Once we used Colony ships, now crystaline Hand ships and Warps... Gems adapt."
"I am not a Sapphire... I can't see the future.
Morion watched the fire in the fireplace then sigh quietly
"Once... I had to impersonate a young lad. It was the part of a mission. There was something my "father" said. He was old, very old at the time. I went into his room, and he was sitting alone in the dark, crying. So I asked him what was wrong, and he said, "My shoes are too tight, but it doesn't matter, because I have forgotten how to dance." I never understood what that meant until... Diamonds, it took me long, very long time to understand.... My shoes are too tight, and I have forgotten how to dance."
The Assassin sipped from his drink Then shook is head Chip never understood his annekdotes and lessons... but he hoped, sometimes the young Fire Opal sat down and think about them, trying to understand Or discuss them with with his friends But like Sulfur, Pearl and Para were "adults" Not that it mattered actually
"My shoes are too tight, but it doesn't matter, because I have forgotten how to dance...."
Morion sat down in his chair
"...but my humans still remembers how to. What will the Diamonds do? I don't know. But promised them a chance.... and the universe is a great place. Maybe it will be enough for them. Or not. I don't know... but I will keep my promise. As for me...? I am sure, Blue Diamond will shatter me or order my execution. After all, it was my mission to watch and report, notice the signs and alert the Gems in position to prevent something that happened on Earth. I have failed Her and if Her Majesty let me live, I will try to fix my mistake... but if not, I will accept Her judgemen. I have failed Her."
The Quartrz said quietly, watched the fire place, the dance of the crimson flames and murmured
"There is a story about a man. There was this man... who had spent almost his entire life locked in a cell in a tower for some alleged crime or other, and had tamed little birds for company during his life sentence. They crapped on his bedding and ate his food, but he tolerated them and smiled at their flight in and out of the high barred windows..."
Morion watched the fire Demetry, Bloodstone, Fire Opal, Spider Web Jasper... now Sulfur... the others... Humanity.... all were his "birds"
"Sorry Padparadscha, my mind wandered away... where were we? Ah! Yes... you are free to go even if you decline my offer. There will be no retribution, nor hunting... there is no point.... as long as you stay away my City, do whatever you want. After all, the War is Over. I doubt there was ever one actually... so hunting you would be waste of time and resurces.
Light was schocked, Para was actually thinking about joining. He never expect her to betray Crystal Gems. Only Howlite and Crystal Sapphire. Howlite actually did betray them, he was the reason Pearl is here right now. Crystal from the other hand had great life in hw, nothing bad could happen to him. But Para? It was one of Light's worst nightmares. He hoped that she will still be crystal gem however. There was still hope. "Para don't even hink about coming back to hw! He is manipulating us! Like I said, this new planet for humans just can't exist when diamonds are still here. And what about humans that will stay here and other living creatures?! If we won't stop hw they will destroy this planet for colony that noone needs and they will do the same to other planets. If we will stop them now maybe gems in hw will join us and we will all stop diamonds from killing diamonds!"
Pearl grabed Para's hands "This planet needs you, humans need you, our team need you, I need you!"

There was a long pause where Para was silent, to the point it almost seemed as if she wasn't paying attention. But eventually she did rise from her chair, standing at full height and staring Morion down. She walked over to his desk and... nothing. She simply bowed, "I am glad to see this proceed without hostilities. You are a dangerously smart individual Morion, very dangerous indeed. I thought my mind had been made up, but I will continue being honest in saying that you speak some truth. Whether I agree with everything you mention I will not say, but my eyes have been opened. I respectfully decline the offer for now, but I hope that if I change my mind I may return to you and... well I suppose we will have to see if the offer still stands, yes? For now I need to collect my thoughts and rest, it has been a very long few days." She turned and went to leave the room, calling to Light over her shoulder, "Come Light, it's time to go." Unless stopped Para simply walked out and exited, waving a final time to Morion, "I will be seeing you Morion, one way or another I am sure." before disappearing below.
"Yes Lady Para..." Pearl grabed his gem weapon and followed Para. Before he left room he gave Smoky Quartz an deadly look.
While they were leaving Light was feeling uncomfortable. What if Morion was right and there is going to be a war soon? He was just scared. "Para... do you think everything will be okay? What do we do? Is war really coming. I am... terrible. I can't even protect myself, how am I suppose to protect others. I will be useless in the battle. I could even join This Quartz, it wouldn't change anything anyway. I am sorry... I am not good at anything that could help us win with diamonds and their forces. I am just a waste of material..."
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
