Bloodstone had gotten used to spending time on Morion's ranch aboard the Derelict. Granted, it wasn't a DAILY thing since Octi had to take care of stuff outside of the ship off and on, but they just kept coming back to the place. Maybe it was the fact that it was a very calming environment and it helped sooth the berserker's mind if it needed the group collective feeling, or it was just nice to study the animals there.
"Man I love this place..I wonder what form to try next..."
Octi had been sitting around for awhile in their female projection form, watching the various groups of animals wander around the area, admittedly focused on them and nothing else for the moment
Light was siting under the tree. Wheater was perfect on the ship, only few clouds, sunny. He tried to relax after the concert. He won't forget it, that is for sure. He is not going to stop with his music carrier though. Humans didn't like his show but that is because he was a crystal gem. Now he isn't."So it is my new home...? It is actually kinda nice, similar to my old gem room. " Pearl looked at the blooming flowers "This planet looks much nicer than hw, it is full of life. Sometimes I think that humans don't understand what is around them."
After a while he started thinking about his friends "Have I done a good thing?" Light treid to try humans way to waste time- sleeping. He closed his eyes and started doing nothing.
Bloodstone was humming to herself until she heard another gem walking around. She looked up and eventually noticed a Pearl...where did he come from? Octi couldn't remember seeing them on the ship before so they had to have been a new addition
"Oooh...this'll be interesting. I wonder how nice they are..."
She started making her way over, staying in her..well, human projection form as the simulated breeze blew past her hair, eventually making it up to the tree that Light had been sitting underneath
"Excuse me? I don't recall seeing you around here before"
Octi popped her head around the tree and smiled softly, sitting next to the Pearl
"My name's Bloodstone..mind I ask who you may be?"
Light was near falling asleep whe he heard a female voice. He freaked out. Pearl also made a weid scared cry "NYAAA!" He tried to calm down. Morion told him that only gems are living herd, nothing is going to eat him. "Hmmmm... hello? Yeah, we never met each other. Are you Morion's friend?"
Stranger's name was 'Bloodstone'. She wanted to befriend Light "Excuse me for this. I am overreacting like usually." Pearl blushed a little "My name is a Light Mocha Pearl. People call me Light or Pearl, though." Light was trying to stop his scared nature and tried to make a good first impresion. "Are you living here on this ranch? I thought I am alone here. Morion didn't mention you."
Bloodstone giggled a little bit when she realized she scared the Pearl. She wasn't trying to be mean but..never hurts to have fun.
"Oh, yes. I'm one of Morion's friends. I...don't exactly live on the ranch, but Morion lets me come aboard to sort of relax and let my mind wander when it needs to. I live on a shack near beach city, it's not a bad place"
Octi shrugged and sat down next to Light
"So, there any particular reason you decided to come into the ranch room? It's not exactly a room that I would expect a lot of gems to come here normally. Not trying to say that in a mean way. I'm just curious"
Pearl blushed even more when Bloodstone giggled. He was hoping that it isn't to late to make a first good impresion. "So... you are here when you want to think about important things and to calm down?"
Suddenly the gem sit next to Light. Bloodstone was acting quite friendly, there was no reason to be afraid of her. She was courius why he was here. Well... it reminds me of a place I used to live in (his gem room in cg temple was also a ranch) . I love nature, it is so calm. Animals here are rally adorable and wheaters is nice. It is easy for me to relax here... it is just marvelous. Morion also wanted me take care of animals here."
"Ohh you can shape shift? That is so cool. I wish I could do this... I like my body the way it is but I wonder how kt feels." For some strnage reason Light could nkt shape shift. He wasn't sure if he was made that way or he just don't know how.
Bloodstone offered help with taking care of animals "No, don't worry. I used to take care of animals before and I was reading humans books what each animal need to survive. It looks like all of them need to eat and drink, poor animals... eating is so disgusting. However it looks like some of them like it" Suddenly goat aapproached to Pearl and started eating his toga "Hilga stop! I gave you your food arleady!"
"It...feels pretty nice actually. I've gotten used to it since I started really practicing again."
Bloodstone smiled, feeling a tiny bit sorry for Light but willing to be a support of some kind if needed.
"I see...and yes, it would make sense that some of them like to eat."
Octi couldn't help but laugh when the goat, apparently named Helga, was trying to eat on the Pearl's toga
"I suppose Hilga must be one of the ones that love to eat. But um...this may sound a little bit awkward, but would you mind possibly taking care of me if I was part of the animals..? It's um...it's something I've started to like doing and erm...yeah..."
The blush on Bloodstone's face made it somewhat obvious how she felt about this
Light throw food far away so Hilga would eat something else than his clothes. Bloodstone wanted to do something akward. He wanted to shape shift to Earth creature so Pearl would take care of him. Light had no idea why gem wanted to do this... He decided to help her anyway. After all he wanted her to be his friend. "Hmmm... okay... I have no idea why you want this but sure. What bad could happen after all? So you want me to feed you, clean you and check if everything is okay with you? Don't tell anyone about cleaning part."
Light also wasn't sure if it is how shape shifting powers should be used. However he had no idea about this power because he never used it before. Maybe it was fun?
Bloodstone blushed even more but smiled when Light agreed to do this..well different request. She wasn't sure why she wanted to try this but it was something that obviously couldn't hurt..right?
"Essentially, yes. And I wouldn't tell anyone else, don't worry. I'd only be trying this for about...hm...a day, maybe two? I'd shift back into this or my other main projection once I felt like I needed to. I've just never been able to be among the animals without um..well without someone who could consistently be in the ranch"
Octi was blushing heavily but she smiled and stood up, looking around for which group she could join
"Hm...I suppose I could try being with the cows. That sound okay to you Light?"
Bloodstone said that she will be an animal for about day or two. Pearl froze, he heard that using shape shifting powers for too long may hurt "Huh?! What?! How?! 2 days?! When did you learn to be so good at shape shifting, it is amazing!"
Weird but nice gem wanted to become a cow. Light saw no problems in it. "Yeah sure, it is okay." He realized something after a while though "Wait... does that mean I will need to milk you? Are we gems even able to do this? " Good that Light had no idea what is that think which give milk. He was innocent like human child... for him it was just a way to have a drink.
"It's alright. It's not the first time I would have been an animal for that long. Don't worry about me"
Octi giggled and blushed slightly
"Erm...well...I don't think that I'd make milk...I honestly am not 100% sure. I don't remember ever trying to see if someone could milk me before but I know that the form I've used has had udders in the past.."
She sighed and blushed more, still a little bit embarrassed but made her way with Light over to where the cows were. There was a good sized herd, full of both males and females
"This okay with you? I figured I could just turn into one of the females and...well we'd go from there"
It looks like Bloodstone was completly fine with shape shifting for so long "If you say so. Just be careful, noone is forcing you to stay in your new form."
Light was looking at gem with confused look "Why do cows have udders anyway? They don't drink they own milk from it."
Gem approached to the cows. Bloodstone decided to become a female cow, the one that gives milk "woah you do look like a cow! What now...? I spend some time with animals. They usually lay on the ground when they have free time. So they are doing this all day... you won't get bored, will you."
Suddenly male walked to the Bloodstone. He started walking around her. After that he started doing something that looks like hugging "I think you arleady find a friend! Friends like to hug each other."
Bloodstone smiled as she hopped into the female cow form and soon found herself mingling with the herd
"I'll be careful, don't worry! And to tell you the truth..I don't know. They're not exactly on every single cow...perhaps evolution must have kicked in for this species at some point."
Octi looked over at Light, making sure she was in a good distance
"Well..I suppose we can talk some. Although I will give you a heads up, I've found myself to sort of just...slip into a bliss state sometimes whenever I'm with the herd. I have no idea why but..it's comforting."
Her eyes widened in surprise when the male was trying to hug her..according to Light at least as she slipped out of that and quickly reappeared away from the male
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
