Sulfur remained emotionless as Blue Quartz spoke. After what he had said he had assumed that she would instantly burst into tears or something and join them. It had never occurred to him that she wouldn't be very moved by it. He was regretting even dropping by, but at this point backing out would only take more effort. He leaned his face on his hand and his expression became bored, feeling insulted.
"This Broken Gem." Sulfur said, in a mocking tone. "Has come by to pick you up and bring you back to our castle. If you don't want to then we have no business here and will gladly take our leave. How do you reply Blue Quartz?"
Sulfur rolled his eyes a little bit at her personality.
Howlite thumped Sulfur in the back of the head again. What Boss means to say is that we want you to come home. If not then we will take our leave as per our agreement upon entry. Look.. Boss and I have something planned. Something huge. We'd really appreciate your assistance. Plus I have an event planned for all of us and I'd like you to come. He pulled a party invitation out of his pocket and gave it to her. I was gonna surprise Boss with it but I guess the cat's out of the bag. It's basically a huge party hosted by me, as a sign of thanks and appreciation as well as a chance to get together as a family again.
Blue begun to roll her eye and feel annoyed by sulfur as he was wasting her time simply just trying to make a point out of himself, she would then hold the bridge of her supposable nose narrowing her eye at Sulfur," ...Sulfur..If I didn't want to go.. I wouldn't of even considered sending visual screens to talk to you two.. if I didn't want to go I wouldn't even be speaking to you two.. if I didn't want to go we wouldn't even be sitting here.. and finally if I didn't want to go I'dnever even open that door ..and why are we having this meeting at your castle.. why not here? Dark and Verisicite isn't present however that'll be just fine we can fill them in on the way correct"I have no intentions on going back and worth with you anymore, we only have each other at the very end.. so proceed Sul" she'd say completely calm.
As Howlite brought out an invitation from his pocket and explained that he had something bug he wanted to do with us she would take the flyer," Hmmmmmmmmmm... I'll attend this event your hosting, will there be tea?" she'd say out of a more humorous curiosity.
Sulfur grunted and growled as Howlite once again struck him. He was sure that he wanted to stab Howlite next time. Not enough to poof him, just enough to make him stop that! He groaned as the negotiations continued. He didn't like talking with Blue Quartz at the moment, it was humiliating. He had heard nothing of this party, and it worried him that Howlite had planned something like this behind his back. He hoped that the decorations would be pink, but then again didn't want to ask.
"Hmm...excellent idea my knight." He grit his teeth as Blue Quartz spoke. "My castle is far more glam than this laboratory. At any rate, we would appreciate it if you showed up for this little endeavor."
Blue Quartz asked about tea. Sulfur had tea that would be the envy of India.
"Of the finest sort Lady Quartz." He said, levitating and putting his arms behind his back.
Howlite grinned. I'm glad you'll come. I'll be wearing a suit so it'll be you first time seeing me look decent. Boss here can vouch for me, I didn't look half bad at the wedding. Then Sulfur got hostile again. He pinched the bridge of his nose. Forgive Boss, Blue. He hasn't got an ounce of people skills. What I believe he means to say is that the castle is where it all began. It's where we met. It would be unorthodox to not do business there. Right Boss? He nudged Sulfur with his elbow. He was getting tired of Sulfur's threats. He whispered to him, One more threat and I will slap that smug look right off your face. He turned to Blue with a smile.
Blue widened her eye as a wedding was mentioned, she remembered humans doing such ritual to show there eternal love for one another, she would then look towards Howlite slightly flabbergasted," Wedding? Between whom, and why wasn't I invited to this wedding" she'd say while then leaning back in her chair. Blue would then see the point he made however even though it wasn't enough she simply went with it," I see.. " she continued," Howlite that is enough, you don't need to try to put him in line during his actions as it isn't your job to do so, I thank you for trying to help him however you can't help someone who doesn't want nor may not need it, let him be how he is, it is just in his nature to act as such, I lived with it for many months I have been in partnership with him and I'll still have to do it as a teammate which is fine with me at the state I am at.." she'd say in her sapphire like voice clenching her palms together in her lap.
Blue Quartz would then get up from her seat while close her eye, she would then fold her arms," Alright You two let's get to it" Oh and Howlite I require your assistance with a certain theory I'm working on that is if your up for some hunting.." she'd then say while pressing a button on the spiral table," Pearl, look after the base for me and alert me of any news or trespassers that approach."
" Yes My Quartz" she'd say in reply
Blue would then head towards the door and looked back at the two," Shall we?" she'd say in her usual all voice as she would exit the door and head towards the other door the two came from, she awaited for them to come so she can enter the code to exit her base with them.
"It was no big deal." Sulfur said, lulling his head back. "Two crystal gems participating in a mating ritual, we did away with the ceremony, but Howlite became sentimental and that is why he left us to begin with, and he has made me like him since then..." Sulfur said.
As Sulfur spoke Howlite did something that he hadn't done before. He gave him a threat. Sulfur couldn't help but smile. He tried to stop smiling, which caused his lips to twist into an odd position. It was so rare that Howlite would show any animosity, Sulfur was both proud and entertained by the gesture. Howlite wasn't a pushover at the moment, which was a good sign, but he then realized that Howlite had never done anything of the sort to a crystal gem. Perhaps he was right to question Howlite's loyalty. The smile faded as he mused over this. When Blue defended Sulfur during the threat he chuckled a bit.
"Oh Blue Quartz, I don't have any desire for Howlite to mindlessly submit to me, if I did, he would be dead! Howlite isn't meant to be loyal, he's meant to be good company! If he never spoke for himself then he would be rather bad at his job, correct?" Sulfur said with a smug grin. It was then that she mentioned hunting. For once Sulfur seemed uninterested.
"Does this involve shattering?" He said in a dull tone, as if he was expecting a yes reluctantly.
At the mention of a hunt he grinned wickedly. A hunt you say? I hope we run into hostile gems. I need something to put on my table. He turned to Sulfur. Did you not know? After our first argument I decided that I couldn't give up on torture. But I couldn't do it to innocent corruptions. My solution? Any hostile gems that I can extract information from. So basically any loyal or rebel aside from Pearl and Slugger. I've had no luck yet but I've been experimenting with that fluid you used on me. I got very creative. Give me a syringe and a saw and I could make any gem talk. I don't care for any loyal you put on my table aside from Peridot. You know who'd be the perfect guy on m table? Morion. I could spend eternity cutting into him as I heard his screams.
Blue Quartz secretly adored weddings as the concept seemed so quickly vague yet memorable at the same time, she never thought of gems doing it but then again Sulfur was jamming to human music, Howlite became drunk which humans do so whose to say gems can't do the same thing. Blue Quartz would then walk back to the door of the meeting room as it seemed as if they were taking there time leaving the room," Where did that come from? Of course he can speak for himself I said nothing of a sort of his loyalty.. he's a broken gem, a gem able to make is own desicions I just simply decline allowing him to try and make you be nice even though I already can see without the ability of future vision of your fate..which could be multiple possibilities" she'd say in her low yet settled sapphire like voice having her arms behind her back.
Blue would then blink as sulfur mentioned shattering in which then she would shake her head back and forth while chuckling," No no, nothing of a sort however it does deal with the abduction of humans and animals as I plan to commence my own nonviolent testing theory, the humans wouldn't know what hit them once there at the area I'm in the process of making" she says thinking intentionally on making a giant space with using the technology she has left for virtual enchancer to image a forest like place for the humans and animals she may obtain.
Blue then folded her arms while looking of to the side thinking towards herself," Hmm... possibly the crystal gems or Morion may be hostile if they found out I'm in the process of doing this that is... I may just get humans at empire city, maybe at the boardwalk, we'll see." Blue would then head over towards the two," Now enough talking we have plans to speak of, yes?, Where wasting little morion's time huh sul sul?" she'd stay still on the matter of why we even follow orders from that homeworld scum.
Sulfur crossed his arms and sat back in the chair, nodding as she spoke.
"I do suppose he's being quite rude...Now that's not very good company now is it? Be careful Howlite, or you`ll lose your best quality!" He joked, but he meant it. He had considered again and again why he kept a gem he couldn't trust with him, and the only reason was that he liked Howlite. He liked a gem who he believed put him first, yet Howlite was acting very rough lately. Perhaps he had no reason to keep him around at all. The thought made him sad, as he had indeed come to care about Howlite, but then again he remembered that caring was weakness. If he cared too much he would make an irrational decision.
It was then that Howlite suggested his true opinion of Morion. This was his mistake. He was making an attempt to be nice in front of Blue Quartz, but he could no longer hold in his anger. The wind blew on Howlite's neck as five blades appeared behind his back, ready to dig into him at the slightest flick of Sulfur's wrist. Sulfur's expression darkened and he looked at Howlite.
"Sorry...I think I misheard you... what was that you said again?" Sulfur said, looking into Howlite's eyes.
A sadistic smile crept over Howlite's face. A smile he hadn't had in a long time. He licked his lips like he used to. Put away the blades Boss. You know what I said. I'm sick of a stuck up, lousy Homeworld coward calling the shots for us. What gives him the right? And as for you, try to hurt me and I will have no trouble putting you on my table. I haven't gotten rude Boss. You've made the mistake of toughening me up. Now I'm not afraid of you or Morion or anyone else. I love you and love spending time with you but if you attack me I will strike you down. You say you value our friendship? Prove it! Put up or shut up! Remove the blades Boss.
It was completely unexpected for sulfur to do as such and frankly unnecessary to the very least, she would then look towards the back of Howlite to see what he meant in which then her eye widened to the sight of five blades hovering behind him, she knew all to well those were sulfur's blades. She then gazed her eye towards sulfur yet her body was straight forward her original direction," Sulfur this is no time for unnecessary threats and bickering, it isnt what we should be doing to one another, save that for the enemy" she continued however moving her attention at Howlite," Look, it's quite understandable that you have evovled in a way however I'm sure you have gained some wisdom with your strength or you would've been shattered a long time ago, this isn't the time to start this, not between one another it's childish, both of you get ah rip and let's handle our overall business, Oh and Sulfur this isn't new of our despise for Morion.. it's been there since the moment I've met him really" shed say softly. Blue then would grab the middle of her large curly hair and pinned it in a pony tail, she would then fold her arms awaiting for the two to stop this nonsense.
Sulfur's eye twitched. A grin appeared on his face. At this point, Howlite had lost all value to him. He used to value Howlite as an equal, someone who saw the world the way he did. Howlite had changed, and no longer could shatter gems heartlessly like Sulfur could. Then he saw value in his loyalty. Howlite betrayed him time and time again and outright challenged him several times. Then he saw value in his friendship. At this point, Howlite had outright mocked Morion, the gem that Sulfur respected above all. The blades drove into Howlite, if he didn't have some ability or trick up his sleeve he would be impaled by all of them in less than a second.
Howlite screamed in pain as the blades dug in. Then he remembered an old saying. What doesn't kill me only makes me stronger. He slowly pulled the swords out of his body and was breathing heavy. Badly damaged but still alive. I'm afraid that won't work anymore. And don't tell me this is about your little man crush. So I hate the guy? Who cares? You've tried to kill my friends too Boss. You know what really grinds my gears? WE made a deal that no one from Homeworld could control us anymore. That we made the rules. Were those just words to you? Is making widdle Smoky happy worth losing your one friend in existence? Think about it Sulfur. Who's more important to you?
As sulfur's weapons went into Howlite's body she thought he would poof his physical form, as he endured the pain she chuckled as she was quite fond of his bravery and determination as a warrior. Blue then would walk over behind Howlite and kneel down slightly, she moved her hand towards his gem at the center of his back and begun to concentrate," Stay still, we don't need anymore strain on your light body.. I'll heal the internal damages momentarily" she says while then suddenly a lime green glow formed on her palms flowing into Howlite's gem in which then the healing process begun.
Blue closed her eye as she was focusing only on making sure he would be fine at the moment, she then looked at Sulfur with a face of utter disappointment, she agreed with everything that Howlite said and wanted to ask Sulfur the same herself, actually she did however it was ignored which led her to infer of some reasons why the answer was avoided. Blue would then stop causing the lime green glow to subside, she got herself back up and looked towards Howlite," How do you feel? Your damages should be healed up to an extent where your durable enough, you should be back In shape in a day or so.." she'd say calmly. Blue looked at sulfur one last time and turned her head quickly ashamed to even look into his eyes at the moment as he seemed out of control, not as a leader in her eyes however she always knew he had his moments," I can't even look at you anymore..." she'd say walking out the room, she'd lean on the wall in tthe halls and closed her eye breathing in and out she would slowly go into a state of meditation.
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
