"Sure... some of the stalliosn are pretty wild. But it is part of their nature"
The Smoky Quartz led Bloodstone to the "ranch"
"Chip had hard time to take other forms too... even after his stone healed. But after some practice his volture was perfect. An orange redish volture... he looked more like a ravenous phoneix, but... it was a good form!"
Morion nodded, watched the shpashifting Bloostone
"You know lots of Gems Bloodstone... do you know anything about a Gem nicknamed "Flurry"? I think she is a Crystal Gems and Chip's friend... grilfriend actually, but he hates it when I call her that. Hated. We are not talking that much... "
Those bright days are over Now only the gathering clouds remained and the cold The eternal Winter
"Thank you Bloodstone... I don't want you to betray any of your friends by telling me about them. We had enough betrayal for a decade"
The Smoky Quartz nodded
"Yes. Male horses are the stalions, the female ones called mares. The young ones called colts."
"And yeah, there they are... pretty majestic creatures actually. I am more of a predator fan, but these hooved creatures are too have the aura of nobility I admire. And wisdom... just look in their big eyes... you will find intelience behind it that rivals the human's. To be honest, most o the biological life forms on Earth are wiser then the Humans..."
"Indeed...I would like to try and go without any betrayal for awhile."
Bloodstone sighed nodded, listening to the mini-biology lesson that Morion was giving. It was fascinating, something that the berserker had never been aware of how the horses were.
"I see...that's interesting! As much research I admittedly had tried to do a tiny bit of research yet somehow biology is a subject I never truly reached. I can see why you might prefer the predators but..somehow I think I may be a bit drawn to these creatures."
Octi decided to walk up to one of the stallions, walking up to it slowly so that she would not appear to be an enemy of some kind. Perhaps if she examined one closely, it would give an idea as to how to properly shift into one
Some sniffing and some palyfull nibble was the reaction The herd accepted the green/reddish "horse"
"It is nice to just... run on strong paws, climb and jump, forget the bruden of "civilization". I think beeing a horse is the same... run, be wild, be free... udner the endless star filled sky. Terapeutic so to speak. Or just stand and graze the fresh grass.... the umans and the horses have a strang but close connection. Like they were made for each other. Some human learns to ride a horse before learns how to walk...."
The Assassin explained "I think it is some sort of spiritual thing that the Gems lost along the way....Maybe this is why we hate bilogical life. Or look down the Pearls. After all, in nature Pearls are formed in giant clams. So they are closer to the "life" than a quartz..."
Bloodstone blushed a tiny bit as she felt herself sniffed and nibbled. When it seemed like the herd accepted her, she giggled happily and moved in with them, still able to hear Morion clearly and responding when she got the chance
"It...really does feel pretty nice just to walk like this. I don't know why I never tried this sooner!"
Octi seemed extremely happy as she trotted around with the herd, feeling more freedom than she could ever remember..she was taking to the horse form quite well, being able to move around in it after only a few minutes of practice
"I can see why you think that it's so nice to be a horse Morion...I know I haven't done this for long but the comfort that I already feel being part of the herd it's just...I don't know how to properly describe it, but I love it! And..maybe. Who knows, maybe Gems are closer to nature than we realized."
"I am more of a predator kind, you know... but I was once a, well not a horse per see, just a similar hooved creature as a part of the job, palying the dumb animal, to get close and listen. And once a centaur. It was a chalenging but quite fun experience!"
"Ahh... it is a nice feeling isn't it? Accepted and to be the part of the Herd. You know, this is a familiar feeling Bloodstone; in the Herd you have your place, your task, everything is clear, simple. Like... in the Empire, the Caste. In a court. You were alone so long, I think you forgot what is it like"
Morion patted the green-reddish horse's back gently
"It will be hard to change back..."
The Assassin warned Bloodstone quietly "...to be Bloodstone, the Independent again... to be you again... to be alone again... "
Bloodstone blushed a little and let Morion pat her, she found herself nodding a tiny bit at the words the Smoky Quartz was telling her
"Do...do you really think so? I hadn't...I hadn't considered that this was something I may have missed. I mean...if you want me to be perfectly honest, what I can remember from Homeworld is that I was never..I never felt like I was a good part of the herd."
Octi sighed and looked over at Morion, mixed emotions in her eyes
"I don't remember clearly if the form shifting had started while on Homeworld or what, but I know there was a reason I signed up to be part of the Earth colonization. I just...I never felt RIGHT as part of the group, as part of the soldiers. Something was never...right..."
"I think it is the side effect of the procedure that robbed of your healing powers and made you a Berserker... also it is possible the experiments altered your memories a bit. The trauma. But as much as I hate and abhor Yellow Diamond who did this to you... I must admit, it is quite possible you volunteered to be the part ot the experiments, so you could become more than you were. Not just a Bloodstone, something more..."
The smoky Quartz patted the horse again gently
"Well... Fire Agate is from Her Court, maybe she can help you, to find answers, the details of that experiment that made you a Berserker. Worth a try.... Anyhow I think it will be hard to leave the Ranch and be yourself again, be Bloodstone and go home to your lonely empty shack from here..."
Bloodstone sighed and shifted back into her combined form of both genders, looking up at the Smoky Quartz nervously
"I-I can stay at the shack..I know I can! But um...yeah, I think it might not hurt if I look for this Fire Agate you're referring to...is there any easy way that I might be able to contact them?"
Octi was admittedly a tiny bit nervous, but she had a feeling that she needed to do..all of this. Trying to figure out just everything that happened to her back on Homeworld, perhaps even being comfortable with a group..her mental state was already not the best anyway, so she'd be able to survive.
"I know I can make it out of the group but..um...I-I think I may come back to the Ranch should I need some group time."
Melody: "The fight system of this site is really Ehh..." Well... how would you improve it? ^^

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

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
