Suddenly a glowing teal tunnel soared flowing Blue's Light body through the area of the planet earth,she had a particular objective to do today, she needed to search for more gem technology to create more of it by scratch, this would mean for her to go alone as she didnt need others trailing behind her right now, As she landed on the warp pad from teleporting she would then gaze upon the area. The area seemed rather clear in which then she would go on and head towards the the giant broken down homeworld standard ship in which was one of the older models, as she would head towards it she saw a door along with a hand panel similar to the ones back on homeworld. Blue couldn't help but feel as though she was being watched while attempting to press the hand panel, as the door shifted upwards she would head inside softly, she'd wouldn't know something followed her from behind as she went in.
As Blue would roam the area she would see that the inside was no doubt broken down a bit since gems who previously flied this hunk of junk however she was sure she could use some things around here for some use, suddenly she would see a giant pink lug of crystal that seemed to be chipped a bit, she would then grab it and started to pull, she could possibly use this as a source of energy for future machines. Blue would then rip the giant crystal out and flowed her navy blue bubble around it in which then she would tap the top teleporting it to her base, as she looked around more she would continue onward on her search.
Blue knew all to well that this broken down junk wouldn't be able to even make a pulse of energy without a source however she was quite the capable engineer so it'll be somewhat difficult yet still a doable task. Her eye darted over to a machine that seemingly served the ability to process and control the center part of the ship's systems, she could use this for her lab area so she would then grab the sides of the machine with her palms pulling and pulling she started to produce sweat as she tried, suddenly she snapped and the next she saw the machine off the ground. Blue's anger must've got the best of her once again, she would then bubble it and send it off to her base, as she would head towards the door to leave she suddenly heard something fall from the ceiling, a clanking sound echoed throughout the room forming myriads of vibrations that grew in sync as if more objects fell from the ceiling. As the sounds intensified more the more Blue became angry at the fact that she wasn't aware on who was making the sound.
Translucent light bathed Variscite's body as she emerged from the warp pad. The gem wondered what sort of "initiation" task the quartz gem would give her. She skid down a hill, began to tumble, but easily righted herself in a smooth manner as she slid the rest of the way down. Upon reaching the bottom of the hill, Variscite heard a lound sould in West to her. She strode with an even, almost sincronized walk. What is this place? Why am I here? Is this truly the direction the blue quarts gem headed in? The uncertain individual's mind was flooded with questions.
At length, she reached a place from where she could visibly see her ally, but what was she doing? It seemed that the blue, royal looking gem was upset. More than that, she was listening for a sound. Curious, Variscite stepped into view from a location the sound would not have likely come from.
"I have returned, my superior. I, Variscite, am ready to begin this process of "initiation" in whatever way you desire." Variscite said this in a calm and soothing, yet respectable tone. She bowed low to the ground and smiled upon coming up.
As Lady Blue would suddenly felt the sound echoing away she would sigh in relief however she knew it wouldn't be over, she would then see that this broken down colony ship was quite old and really wasn't of use to her since she grabbed most of the things she needed, as she walked towards a wall it had series of vines stuck onto it in which then she would sway her arm towards the right moving them out the way as a control panel would be on it. Lady Blue smiled at this and knew this must've been some sort of battling or security sequence activator, she would study the panel while swiping it with her finger suddenly widening her eye as she heard a clicking sound that would sync with more clicks, beams of light charged in the red gem blasters that she activated.
Once she powered it down with the panel she would then rip off each one bubbling them and sending them off to her base. As she would then be done she would head towards the door, she blinked once she saw the newcomer of the Broken Gems Verisicite, she then would nod towards her speaking softly," Welcome, I'm glad your here, I finished with finding a few scraps however I know the perfect way to conclude your initation, a simple battle or rather rampage in this case, your objective is to shatter a few corrupted gems and bring the pieces to me"she'd say in a calm tone. It was fairly not complex however who knows what kind of corrupt gems are around this area, finding it would probably be the difficult part about it. Lady Blue would head towards the door using her hand to open it," Come, I shall simply follow you to observe your skills" she'd say calmly while having her hands behind her back walking off into the forest.
Unbeknownst to the 2 Broken Gems, they were being watched from afar. Howlite was 1 kilometer away, watching them with Tracker Vision. This must be Variscite's initiation test with Lady Quartz. Oh I can't miss this! I'm gonna let them know I'm here. He decided to play a little joke on Lady Quartz. Variscite was indeed familiar with this little party trick. He concentrated and shifted have form. He now appeared to be a corrupted wolf gem. He bolted off towards the gems and once he caught up to them, he barked a few times before licking Variscite's hand. Then he turned to Lady Quartz and began to growl. This was gonna be funny. He wondered how she'll react to this.
It seemed that most of the Broken Gems tested her skill this way. Was their not much else to do as a Broken Gem? No. That was not the case. It was simply imperative to have combat skill. The hard working gem liked the idea of this. It was why she had asked to join their ranks anyway right, 'to get stronger.'
Variscite turned at length and saw a wolf like corrupted gem. It took but half a second for her to realize it was her mentor, Howlite. Variscite could hardly contain a slight grin.
"What is this? Generally animals can scene things that creatures of higher intelligence cannot. Perhaps you are a sort of shape shifter, and not the real blue quartz of the Broken Gems. It would give me credit to exterminate you, unless of course, you are for real. If you are, convince this beast that you are a servant of the Count." Variscite summoned her grapples.
Lady Blue stopped as she heard barking, good thing that it wasn't the sound she heard before as she was about to simply destroy the perimeter if angered. Suddenly a corrupted gem appear in the appearance of a wolf, she would then look towards Verisicite so she could kill it however as soon as the corrupted gem licked her hand she would change her thought. Lady Blue would then mentally spoken towards herself on such a odd moment," Hmm... as a broken gem usually these corrupted gems fear us knowing that we harvest them for our own use well I do of course, yet this one immediately liked her without any experience of positive or caring emotion.. hmm.. it appears to have a blue shade colors on it.. this corrupted thing isn't corrupted.. I suspect that it's actually shifted it's form.. but who would ever care for a broken gem.. hmm.. wait. Ah I see.." she'd say in her head.
Lady Blue looked down at the corrupted wold as it growled at her, she would then narrow her eye at what Verisicite would be saying thinking of her as an Imposter," Excuse me? ... Verisicite I advise you to rethink what your talking about as I am Lady Blue Quartz no one shall imitate my form unless I say so.. now.. if you dare attack me I'll be sure to poof your form... and see to it of your punishment.." she continued," Never..ever say that I'm a servant of Sulfur, you, me and the rest of the team are all equals.. aside from titles of course, we treat on another as such.. you serve under someone by your superiors choice.. as you accepted the role you choosed to be what you are.." she'd finish staring now at the wolf," Now.. Howlite revert to your primal form you look ridiculous"she'd say while chuckling a bit. Lady Blue was a bit disappointed in the newcomer, her first impression was impressive no doubt however know she seems off, maybe it was just a joke and she was playing along with Howlite but whatever the case may be she started to think a bit less about her now.
Luckily Variscite had a sense of humor and played along. Lady Quartz on the other hand did not. She didn't seem to like the joke. He laughed hysterically as he reverted back to normal. That was classic! I wish I had a camera. Seriously though, I was in the neighborhood and I happened to be spying on you so I decided why not join the fun? You have my services Lady Quartz. But I wish to make a deal with you. Sulfur hasn't given me any playmates in quite some time. I simply wish to borrow these gems so I can get my frustrations out. Then you may have the shards. Time to see if his sleight of hand was as good as he believed.
Variscite chuckled softly. It seemed that Howlite too has accompanied them then. He gave his reasons being that he needed to satisfy his sadistic desires (note to observers. This is before Howlite has attempted being a saint, not in contradiction to his old personality.) However, it seemed that the blue quartz gem was did not understand the humor in the joke. Variscite never was good at jokes as she generally played a role too perfectly. Perhaps the quarts' look of disappointment was because Variscite had seriously appeared to doubt she was the real blue quartz.
Eager to fix this misconception, Variscite smiled passionately at her superior. "In order to ensure that there is no misunderstanding, I knew that this wolf-like gem was Howlite all along as he pulled this while we trained previously. I never doubted that you were genuine. Rather, I simply played along with the joke."
Lady Blue would then widen her eye and realize she was right on her second prediction in which then she would start to laugh softly while walking up to Verisicite, she kneeled down a little and moved her palm upon her shoulder," My apologies my dear, excuse my strange ways I simply experinced alot of serious situations in my lifetime, I wouldn't know a joke even if it but me in the face, you are quite the manipulator which is something unique and useful.. Now.. let's continue shall we?" She'd say softly while turning her head at Howlite," Sure thing tag along, as long as I obtain the shards it's fine with me, wait.. don't poof one of the corrupted gems you find, simply capture it... I have a quick test to try out with these things.." she'd say instantly thinking about her healing powers, she possibly could even heal a corrupted gem however it may be only 75% complete not enabling it to summon a weapon. Lady Blue observed them while walking away through the forest awaiting for to follow one could hear several roars echoing throughout the area, the birds zoomed out the trees and into the air by the sound in which then there they were, corrupted gem, all were Quartzes of different kinds, in total were 6 that rampaged the area bursting into trees and now dashing forward Howlite and Verisicite. Lady Blue didn't do anything, she simply stared at them knowing that they both could defend themselves from the mindless gems.
Howlite smiled at Lady Quartz. Then he stared off at the distance. He began scanning for gems. Thanks to Tracker Vision, no one could hide from him. Not even Dark. He soon spotted 6 gems. Not very far apart from each other. He drew his rifle and steadied his breathing. He kept switching back and forth between targets. Soon after a long silence, he pulled the trigger. The first one poofed without warning. Then he did the same to the next 4. One left. He turned to Variscite. Go bubble them. But bring the last one here. Lady Quartz needs this one to still have a form. I trust you can handle this? 5 out of the 6 are poofed for you to bubble. Should more arrive, I will provide support from here. Just make sure you stay in range.
Variscite was glad to be informed that this Lady Quartz understood what Variscite had lightly pulled and took no further offence, yet she was very startled and disturbed to find six quartz gems together in one place. A group of corrupted gems were the type of daily encounter the combat ready gem was fit to deal with. These however, were quartz gems, a form of corrupted gem so powerful that one of great might could theoretically eliminate a battalion of weak soldiers. Even an elite would likely perish. Six of these beastly corrupted gems had come at once. The green gem was simply stunned that Howlite had so easily taken out five of these monsters with his weapon. Variscite made a mental note to never underestimate her Master again. Perhaps this meant that these adversaries were simply weak for the typical quartz, corrupted gem. Nonetheless, Howlite had left the remaining one to her, and she would not disappoint him. Variscite smirked at the towering beast before her. It had the appearance of a large, vulture-like bird, although it failed to demonstrate flight capabilities. The artificial flesh of the creature was studded like gem stone with many. Venom spewed from the monster's mount. Suddenly, the monster launched several spinning, Frisbee-shaped gem stones from its lower back and wings to attack. Variscite rolled to avoid the razor sharp projectiles as she summoned and launched her grappling hooks at a nearby rock, sending it tumbling down to the corrupted gem. Despite this, the large beast darted out of harm's way with alarming dexterity, countering with another barrage of crystalline structures. Variscite had anticipated this. She retracted her grapples in a way that they managed to hook onto the beast, splintering its armor. The confident gem, determined to end this quickly, ran up her opponent's wind and desummoned her weapons so she could use them to remove the hideous gemstone on the bird's breast. Unfortunately Variscite had been to cocky and struck without enough patience. Her turned its head to spray toxic poison. Variscite, realizing her terrible mistake, saw that she was not fast enough to dodge this. She then remembered to improvise and struck the enemy's throat before venom could be produced. She then proceed to tear off the mighty gem's gemstone and bubble it on the spot for show. Variscite then bowed and bubbled the rest of the gems.
As Lady Blue watched in amazement she would then head towards them as the task would be done however the day wasn't over just yet, she would walk back towards them seeing that all the gems were bubbled up. Lady Blue would narrow her eye and glowed her eye in a lime green variation forming near by tree branches and vines together to form a giant arm, she then grabbed all the gems bubbled and gazed upon them. Lady Blue would then head towards the quartz gems and smiled slightly," let's see if I can bring you all back.. not just one..."she know realized she had plenty of gem shards back at her secured base in which then she wanted to test her theory out now.
She used the arm to grab 5 of them to ensure they don't reform, she would kneel down to one of the gems that seemed to be purple as an Amethyst, she would then hold both her arms out to the gem placing her palms on to it concentrating deeply on her internal energy flows. A total of 3 minutes passed and suddenly a glowing green light emitted from her hands flowing into the corrupted gem, a purple glow started to form as the Amethyst gem was reforming. She was startled to what she saw, it actually worked, there stood a 7ft Amethyst right infront of her confused and afraid. The Amethyst tried to glow it's gem to summon it's weapon in fear however nothing happened, it's form was back to normal however the powers still are gone for now, Lady Blue would be starting breathe, Inhaling and exhaling as doing her healing powers was a bit tiresome at times.
She would then crack her neck letting go another gem from the giant vined yet branch arm, she did the same process with all the gems and it worked, an Carnelian, Citrine, Lemon Quartz, Agate and Jasper were the outcomes for the rest. They all couldn't summon there weapons nor commence a elemental skill in which then they all looked around nervous, Lady Blue could barely move herself as she healed too much at on time, she would then speak softly towards them," Greetings.. I am Lady Blue Quartz, Scientist and Engineer along with being one of the founders of The broken gems, I revived you from your mindless state helping you find yourselves, you all will be under me as I'm sure your clueless on what to do from here" she'd say while chuckling a bit. They all would look at each other and nodded there head towards Lady Blue in agreement, she would then command them to go onward to her base as it wasn't that far with warp-pad, she gave them the coordinates and told them to wait by the water fall for entre. Lady Blue stumbled and sat down as they left going through the glistening teal tunnel , still Inhaling and exhaling," Thank you, you both.. Verisicite you are quite skilled, guess my predictions on you were correct, now... let's head to my base as you haven't been well acquainted with it, Howlite you can come along as well if you like" she'd say while using the giant arm to lift her off the ground.
Howlite's eyes widened when he saw the Quartzes. Lady Quartz could heal. Just like Blue. Interesting. I would love to join you both. But if you don't mind my asking, what exactly do you plan to do with these things once I'm done with them. They can't exactly come back after I shatter them. It was impossible to heal the shattered. Thank goodness for that. If they could be healed then his plan wouldn't work. His plan would not fail. Once they reach the base, he was gonna go to his collection and make the swap when they were distracted. Lady Quartz would be none the wiser. He would ever suspect that sadistic, psychopath Howlite would ever be good? It was foolproof. He simply had to play the part and put on a show. Something he did very well.
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.
