Flint had prepared for this day for quite some time. He had put fliers all around the city for anyone to come to his wedding at the temple. He stood in the temple steps and was putting on his suit. "Thank goodness Pearl fixed this for me. Now I can actually fit." As he finished up getting ready, he went into his gem room. With a snap of his fingers, he changed his room to look like a wedding chapel. He started getting everything set up. He looked forward to when the others would arrive. He was rather nervous though. He didn't want to embarrass himself in front of everyone. As he finished getting everything ready he grinned. "Today's the day." (OK, the post order is me, Para, Pearl, Flurry, Blue, Sulfur, then Howlite)

While Para was flattered to be invited to this occasion, she did have to research what a 'wedding' was. It was a confusing ritual, something she could only equate to that of a fusion dance perhaps? An event to bring two humans closer together in some sort of binding. The reasoning for these gems wanting to put one together failed her, but she could at least try to be supportive. Not to mention it was housed in the temple so she had to make sure no one made a mess of things.
If there was one thing she was aware of however, was that this was a formal event. And as such, she had a wonderful excuse to look her best! She walked up to the temple door, dressed in a hand-made dress made in various orange shades. It was more functional than flowery, offering fairly free movement as well as masking the pouch of items she had on her hip. Upon entering she looked around until setting her eyes on Flint, "Ah, good evening. I am Para, lovely to make your acquaintance. I saw the invitation, I suspect I am on time for the... 'wedding'?" She did a slight bow as well, staying very cordial.
Light was preapering himself. First he tried to wear a human clothes "It is so weird... I would rather don't wear this thing but I need to look decent in this special day." After a while he finnaly did it. He was wearing white shirt and brown suit. It was quite elegant.
Pearl left his room and went to Flint's so he could see if his friend is ready "Hmmm Flint? Can I come in?" He saw his friend Para. He bowed low for her "It is great to see you here. I hope you will like this 'weeding'. To be honest I still don't understand what it is but it looks like a fun party and after this Blue and Flint will be together forever..."
He looked at he clock. Weeding time was coming "I think other gems will be here soon too." Light looked at Para "We now each other for a long time arleady but I still don't know... do you like eating? I honestly do not like it but I enjoy making it. If you want I made cookies. It is unhealthy for humans food that taste good at first... later it is... nevermind ughhh."
Flurry entered the wedding with a special outfit. She wore a small white dress which had a collar and a large bow on the back. The bow was about a foot wide, making her look quite small compared to it. She wore a sun hat with a blue ribbon tied around it. On her feet were small white slippers. Around her arm was a basket of white rose petals. As she approached the couple she skipped and threw rose petals about. She seemed overjoyed to attend the wedding, giggling as she sprinkled the area with petals.
She noticed some gems that she had already met. Walking toward them slowly she grinned.
"Hey Light! Hey Para! Are you excited for the wedding? I thought it was just a human thing but I think it's really sweet! "

Blue had managed to get into her dress when the others arrived. She walked over to Pearl and Flurry and smiled. "Hey guys. Long time no see." She turned to the other gem. "Hello. I don't believe we've had the pleasure. I'm Blue." She held out her hand for a shake. She then saw Flint. "Wait! You're not supposed to see me before the wedding! It's bad luck remember? She gestured for the girls to follow her and quickly scurried inside. The last thing they needed was bad luck on their wedding day. It was too important to mess up. Everything had to be perfect. She sat in her room waiting for the others to arrive.
Flint smiled at Para. "Flint Quartz. Pleasure to meet you." Then Pearl and Flurry arrived. "Well if it isn't Pearl and Flurry. How have you two been?" Then Blue showed up but then freaked out. He turned to Para. "You and Flurry go with her. Pearl, I'd like to have a word with you, privately." He thought about what Blue had said. About bad luck. What would possibly happen? The worst thing that could happen today was he could forget his vows. Nothing bad was gonna happen. He led Pearl into his room. "Today's the big day. I'm so nervous. I don't know if I can go through with this. What if I get nervous and forget everything I'm supposed to say? I could really use your help here buddy." He started to fret. Every bad thing began creeping into his mind. As Flint thought about it he realized a lot could go wrong.

Para was beaming, "Oh my, you do look wonderful Light! I think this look is very becoming of you." The offering of cookies was not particularly tempting, but she felt it would only be polite to at least have one, "Hmm, I don't care to eat very often but... just one cookie couldn't hurt." She plucked one and looked it over, seemed edible enough. She took a small bite and lightly chewed it, actually enjoying the taste of the little morsel. Once she had to swallow the mush she had to try rather hard not to grimace at the feeling, this was always her least favorite part, "Thank you dear..."
Her attention snapped to the newcomers flooding in, giving them all a warm smile as they entered. In turn she gave each of them a slight bow, lightly lifting up her dress in a sort of old fashioned style she had read about, "Oh Flurry you look fantastic, a pleasure to see you again. This should be a rather fun event indeed. As for you," she looked to Blue, "You are the bride yes? A pleasure to meet you, I must say you look positively radiant." She politely shook her hand, something she had thankfully learned while researching these weddings. Before she knew it Blue was rushing off to the room beckoning her, hesitating for a moment before Flint confirmed the request. Moving quickly, relative to what the dress allowed, Para followed inside. "This is all quit exciting, I must say! Is there anything you wish of me lady Blue? I am at your disposal, this is your day after all."
Howlite was running a little late. He had gotten stuck in a traffic jam. Soon a limousine pulled into the temple. As the chauffeur opened the door, Howlite stepped out with Mocha next to him. He turned to the driver. "Pick me up in an hour." The man blinked. "But sir, it ends in 6 hours." Howlite grinned. "Not quite." Then he approached the temple and saw no one around. "I have arrived!" He started looking around for them. He entered Flint's room and spotted Flint and Pearl. "Hey guys! You miss me? Sorry we're late. Mocha and I hit a traffic jam." Then Mocha piped up. "I told you he should've gone left." Howlite smirked. "Yeah I get it. You're right." She chuckled. "Well someone has to be with all your shenanigans."
Para really liked Light's clothes, he blushed a little. "Ohhh thank you! You also look perfect!" However he started laughing when his friend tried to eat a cookie "Hahaha It is okay Mrs Para, you don't need to eat it. Most of gems don't like to eat. However Flint, Blue and humans love it! I am not sure if they are okay with alien making them food, though... Some humans are scared of us."
Flurry arived " Hello Flurry! Woah... you do look great." Light had no idea she will come too. There were going to be a lot of people on the weeding. He was hoping that people will like his work.
Suddenly Blue come in with her beautiful dress. She was afraid of bad luck. Light don't believe in something like this. However he did covered Flint's eyes to be sure that nothing bad will happen. Blue left the room with Flurry and Para leaving Pearl and Flint. Romeo was stresed, he wanted to talk with Pearl about overreacting and being stressed. "I can see why you asked me for help... Okay first of all there is nothing bad in being nervous. Just think about something happy and Blue. What bad could happen? Monster will come and shatter us? Haha" Someone or something opened the door. It was Howlite and his girlfriend, Mocha Pearl. Hologram with a fake gem, person that used to be Light's better and fi ished version. Pearl's reaction to see them -> here (Garnet is Flint)
Flurry smiled as all of the crystal gems complimented her outfit. She said 'thank you' to each of them as they did. With a smile of satisfaction she looked around at all of her friends mingling. it was then that she felt the most at home. Then she saw Howlite arrive. She grinned and charged at him at full speed. Leaping into the air she glomped him. She giggled as she did.
"Hi Howlite! You showed up too! It's like, almost everybody showed up! " She said smiling. "This is gonna be the best wedding ever, I have never really been to one, but I just know it will be! "
She hopped off of him and smiled at Light as he complimented her.
"You too light! " She noticed that Light was worried. "I-it's okay Light, nothing bad could ever happen to a wedding like this! "
Post by Blue Emerald-Quartz on Mar 11, 2017 13:33:00 GMT
As Para came with her she smiled. "Thank you Para. Oh and it's really simple. The humans have this belief that if the bride and groom see each other before the ceremony, it will cause bad luck for them. So you're job is to make sure Flint and I don't see each other until the ceremony begins. Since Howlite is here it won't be too much longer." This was probably the happiest day of her life. Everything was going just like she imagined it to be. All her friends were here along with her new friend Para. Everything was going to be great! She then started to shake a little from sheer excitement. In just a few minutes, she'd be Flint's wife. Nothing could ruin this perfect day!
A large cake that was never ordered sat on the floor next to the table. The cake was so large that it was kept off of the table, or else it would collapse. The cake was decorated with pink and white icing, cherries, and strawberries. As delicious as it looked, no one had ordered it, it was just there. It seemed to blend into the party as a simple prop, that was at least, until it started to move. A familiar gem popped out of the top wearing a bikini, a human custom.
"Salutations crystal gems!" Sulfur shouted in a sing-songy voice. He then looked at blue and flint with a grave expression. "Oh my... what a touching scene..."
His face was serious, but his tone was mocking. He leaned on the side of the cake.
"I haven't been so... choked up... since I got that piece of wasabi caught in my throat! Am I right!?"
When Flurry glomped Howlite, he smiled. "How ya doing slugger?" Then he saw a cake. He looked at it with a sigh. He thought Sulfur was joking about that. Then when Sulfur appeared Howlite grinned. But then he remembered something. Flint didn't know he knew Sulfur. "Hello there sir. May I help you? Are you here for this wedding?" He hoped this would make it appear that Howlite was a stranger to him. "As the minister of this wedding, I must ask that you take a seat so we can begin. And preferably change into something more formal." He walked up to an empty seat. It was conveniently placed in the front row. A mere 12 feet from where the bride and groom will stand. He then got up on the stand and grabbed a parchment from his coat. "Shall we begin?"
When Count popped out of the cake, Flint laughed. "I'm glad you could make it. Everyone I'd like you to meet Count. Oh by the way." He pointed at Howlite. "That's Howlite. The guy I told you about. Something tells me you two would get along quite well." Then Howlite got up in the stands. "Yes Howlite we may begin. Who's going to walk Blue down the aisle? How about you Flurry? You simply put your arm around her arm and walk her up to where Howlite is standing. Let me just get over there." He stood in his spot. "Pearl get over here. And bring the rings." He gestured to the right of him to show Pearl where to stand. "Now Para when Blue gets over there I need you to stand at her left and Flurry stand at her right. Alright let's do this!"

"Oh it would be an honor my dear, I will make sure things go according to plan. I..." Her attention drifted as the commotion outside grew, now noting the rather massive food item dominating a section of the room. "Anyways I-" again her attention was grabbed by the gem popping out of the cake, something that would have been just as confusing if it had been any other gem. Yet it just had to be him
"Oh no-no-no-no-no! NO! What do you think you are doing here!?" She pointed an accusing finger at Sulfur, looking completely confounded that he almost seemed to be an expected guest, "What, in all of creation, is he doing here? Do you have any idea who this monster is?" Her reaction was nothing short of panicked, fear for herself and those in her company flooding her thoughts. Then she realized where they were, the center of the Crystal Gems' power. If he had the gall to make a move here it would be far less favorable conditions than their last encounter at least.
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
