"This may not make sense right now Light, but know this. Everything that I do, I do it not for myself but for the good of all of us and humanity. I hope that when the time comes you will remember that." It was oddly cryptic, especially for someone who was usually rather blunt in conversations. Then as if on cue in came Morion, Para drew herself up straight and composed herself, "That is fine, I understand you must be a very busy gem. Let us finish our business here and then we can both move onto other important matters." It was evident Para wasn't proud of herself, her eyes avoided Light, "Morion and I were discussing terms to work towards removing a common enemy. I'm going to make sure that Sulfur and his broken gems never pull a stunt like what they did at that wedding again. Make no mistake," her eyes locked on Morion's, "I am still a Crystal Gem."
A bit of a determined look grew on her, "I will require a sizable sum of metal components, the materials are rather specific but it is all I need." In her hand formed a basic rectangle plate engraved with the specifics of what specific metals she needed and in what amounts. It was indeed a large amount, almost worth that of a small ship. "If you can get me that then I can begin moving to remove the menace that is the Broken Gems. As well, I believe Light here has something to say." She patted Light's back to encourage him, it was best he said it himself.
Light was confused what Morion and Para are going to do together. It was all clearnow "Ohhh so you are going to beat them to talk with them later so they won't act as monsters? Cool! They poofed me arleady 2 times. I tried to talk with Howlite when he was a cg but I failed. I guess I am bad at talking about feelings."
Para patted Light's back, he knew what she is trying to do. He got nervous "Well... I wanted to... uhmmm..." Pearl took a big breath "This ship is amazing and I spend a great time here. I even met a new gem called Obsidian. We are pals now! We really need to meet later. However... I want to leave. I want to work with Para. I hope you don't mind. I am a crystal gem but I see now, loyalist aren't as bas I thought they are. You actually care about your humans and Earth life. What about doing something incredible? We being friends? Crystal gem and loyalist. Let's show everyone that sometimes we just need to talk to understand him." Light was hoping that he will be able to still come here and see animals on the ranch and see Bloodstone. He was also yoping that maybe Smoky Quartz will join rebelion. Together they would be able to protect Earth.
"Wait, Howlite, Sulfur's pet was a Crystal Gem before???"
The smoky Quartz laughed "Diamonds, this explains a lot of things!"
He shook his head still snickering
"So, you are a Crystal Gem Lady Padparadascha? Whatever let you sleep at nigth... whatever let you sleep. But if you asks me... you never were a Crystal Gem. But this is my humble oppinion. They claim, they have rebelled for Humanity, for the Planet! I've seen Rose Quartz message. "Rise up to protect Earth!" But what did the Crystal Gems did for the Planet and it's natives? The Rebels destroyed Gem facilites, bases, sabotaged the Kindergartens, the Warp Network, the Communication Hub... and for what? Their "freedom. Not some noble goal to save a planet or a species... but purely selfish resons. The Crystal Gems doomed Earth. After all, it was pure blind luck Her Majesty, Pink Diamond sent her armada.... and not Yellow Diamond. Pink Diamond is benevolent, good hearted Goddess... Yellow Diamond is a Warriror Goddess... and her methods are? It was never the question If, but when the Diamonds will arrive! This planet is a colony after all... always was and always will be! With precious resurces! And Yellow Diamond is as gracefull as a rockslide, when it comes to retribution. Legions of Rubie soldiers marching alongside the Quartz knights, Gem-powered warmachines, canons and vehicles, Peridots behind them to fix everything if needed... disgusting, but strong and feral Fusions... with our fleet, our ships blackening the sky..."
He walked to the duo
"It was just dumb luck, Pink Diamond came... and all of this could end peacfully. Not in fire and destruction! To be honest I still thinks, Rose Quartz was the Diamond's agent... and all of this, the Rebellion was just Yellow Diamond's trick, to lure out the traitorous Gems. Destroying the Galaxy Warp didn't saved Earth... just stranded the Gems on it and made them easy target for the, you know... space ships we have. BUT... Rose never ordered the Crystal Gems to share technology or warn Humanity, just pissed of the Diamonds... and the Crystal Gem's actions dragged Humanity and Earth in a War. Not to mention giving an excuse to Yellow Diamond, to make her move against Pink Diamond's gentle Court. After all, this was and is Her Planet"
Silver eyes watched Padparadascha "Tell me Artisan, what did you do to protect this planet or its inhabitants? The Crystal Gems kept their distance from Humanity, am I right? Music. Humans. Spicy Ketchup.... Earth wonderful things... before and after the Rebellion, did you ever came out from your Ivory Tower, to be with them? Or the other Crystal Gems? Or ever cared about them?"
The Assassin asked gently
"No... I guess you did not. Nor the Rebels. Sorry Artisan, you are not and never werre a Crystal Gem! You are WAY better than them! I doubt they even noticed Light left them... but you came to me and for him! The situation with the Broken Gems is something personal.... there is nothing noble or "good" behind your reasons to make your move against them. But actually this is not a problem. Not for me at least. "
"Crystal Gem... I doubt. But as I said, whatever let you sleep at night Padparadascha, whatever let you sleep at night! If you ever tried to sleep that is... I will look in to your list and we will see if I could help you. In turn I simply asks you to think about my offer... and my plan. help me if you can to design and bild a cloacking filed strong enough to hide a whole Solar System, the future home of my Humans and the life I will try to save from this doomed planet!"
Then he turned to Light
"As I said numerous time Light Mocha Pearl, you were never my slave, nor my property... or my prisoner. You were and are free; a valuable servant and an ally, like my humans. You are free to go, or come back whenever you like. What I told your friend Padparadascha is true to you too! You are not a Crystal Gem. And I doubt you ever were. Both of you are good hearted Gems, with good intentions, maybe a bit selfish, but... only the Diamonds are perfect Light. We are not"
The Smoky Quartz accepted the offered hand
"Diamond insignia, or star on your uniform... irrelevant. You are a Gem. Like me. And that is the only thing thats matters. But be careful Light Mocha Pearl! It is possible the Crystal Gems think you are a traitor... my advice to you is to avoid them! They are, I'm afraid like the Humans in Empire City... and you remember whats happened when Flurry and you tried to "talk to them". Never forget my Pearl friend: The good are innocent and create justice. The bad are guilty, which is why they invent mercy!
Once Light Mocha Pearl asked Morion with a bitter voice, did he even knows the meaning of the word "mercy" now the assassin gave him the answer

Para didn't confirmed or deny Light's assumptions on her intentions, that was a discussion for another time. Though she knew already that the Broken Gems were going to suffer something worse than a simple slap on the wrist and a stern talking too. It did surprise her however that Howlite was once a Crystal Gem, his behavior seemed nothing like the usual rebel ideals.
She drew herself up, "Well, as usual Morion you are correct. At least for the most part. Perhaps I am not a Crystal Gem in the traditional sense, that much has become painfully obvious as time has passed. My personal beliefs vary from the general rebel doctrine, and while I consider that a good thing I still have my own faults. But that is all irrelevant, which I am glad you understand that. I am here to make this a better world and to help those who need it, gems and humans alike. Because for every strength we may have, the humans do have their own amazing inventions." A bit of a smirk grew on her, "Such as music and 'spicy ketchup'. But personal ideologies aside, yes I will help you in your en-devours for this cloaking technology, simply send me the details and whatever materials you have when you deliver my requested items. Beach City will serve as an acceptable middle ground for delivery. Anyways, I will not keep you much longer. Good bye Morion, best of luck to you as well." She bowed her head and walked to the exit with Light. Para said nothing about his comment on the Diamonds, but she was very aware that had Yellow Diamond been in charge of this colony the fight would already be over.
Once they were out of Morion's office and out of ear shot she spoke to Light, "Pay him no mind, you have nothing to feel ashamed of. If anyone judges you for doing as you did they can personally deal with myself. You are among friends." And so she walked out, her head held higher than the last time the two of them retreated from this tower.
"Morion... not every Crystal Gem is terrorist and care only about freedom. I would say that Para I and few others are real Crystal Gems while other don't know what they are doing. I would even say that you are like a Crystal Gem. You do care about Earth and humans. Maybe you will think about joining us one day."
After a while Pearl whispered something to Para "I am not sure if everything is okay with Morion. He likes to say the same sentences over and over again."
Light didn't want to talk with him about diamonds. In Pearl's opinion they were nothing more but just a mean big rocks who destroy planets to have more people. Well... if not that he would probably never be created... It was a really hard topic to talk about.
Para left with Light following her "Thank you... for everything."
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
