Sulfur smiled. He knelt beside Howlite with a grin.
"You really think you're important don't you?" Sulfur said with an amused smile. "You think you're my friend? Don't you?"
He leaned against a wall of the building. When Blue Quartz mentioned not being able to look at him he just smirked. He then, started to sing.
"Howlite, you think you're deaaaaar to me...then why weren't you neaaaar to me when I needed you! " Sulfur began, slowly walking back toward Howlite. He suddenly dropped and did a split. "A friend will defend! You abandon and resent! An ally will protect! You always disrespect! Oh why do you think you're deaaaaar to me!? If you weren't even neaaaaar to me! "
He picked Howlite up by the collar.
"You hate Smoky Quartz, and you know it really hurts....me.. " Sulfur then threw Howlite in the air. Three blades forming a paddle slapped Howlite into another paddle. The two paddles continued to knock him back and forth. "Why do you think you're dear to me, it really is quite cuuuurious tho' it makes me fu-rious! "
Sulfur then hopped onto Blue Quartz and stood on her shoulders.
As Howlite got thrown around he felt his heart break. Sulfur had chosen a Homeworld clown over him. As soon as he cued Blue, he cut her off and starting singing himself. Carnage loving in your eyes all the way. If I listened to your lies would you say, that I'm a kniggght without conviction? That I'm a kniggght who doesn't know how to sell a contradiction? You come and go. You come an goooo. Due to his injuries he had to crawl towards the two. Come on, Come on, Come on. Come on, Come on Count Sulfur. You come and go. You come and gooooo. I would never consider leaving if your colors were like my dreams. Red, gold, and green. Red, gold and green. Didn't you hear your wicked words every day? And you used to be so sweet. I heard you say. That killing was an addiction. When we cling, our voice is strong. When you're gone, I'm lost forever. You string me along. You string me alooong. Every day is like survival. You're my brother! Not my riiiiivaal! Come on, Come on, Come on, Come on, Come on Count Sulfur. You come and go. you come and goooo. I would never consider leaving if you colors were like my dreams. Red, gold and green. Red, gold and greeeen. As he finished he had grabbed Blue's ankle. Please... you're my family. Both of you... So please... don't let me go.
Blue Quartz stood there silent, she stared at Sulfur, the leader of the broken gems, without any emotion as if all her happiness was simply drained by all the chaotic nature in the area. Sulfur begun to sang about how Howlite wasn't there when he needed him in which then she would cross her arms leaning on the wall still once sulfur attacked Howlite again. Blue would then widened her eye, he stood on her, he actually had the nerve, the audacity to actually stand on her shoulders, she paused for a few minutes still with the same expression of her lifeless face. Suddenly she would then attempt to grab Sulfur ankles, if successful she would begin to swing his body all through the walls of her base with all her might potentially causing damage to this section of her base, she would also end it with a final slam to the ground that is if it were to be successful. Blue Quartz would look at Howlite,he seemed out of it as well," Everything shall be fine, Howlite ee are family, a dysfunctional family that is.. but I shall be that hope.. to glue us together for an eternity..."
Blue Quartz grabbed Sulfur by the ankles. It was true that he had not seen it coming, but he chose not to resist. As she swung him he decided to make the best of his situation, by rapping.
"Sure I`ll let you go! Not my bro! Just a foe! You think I don't know, you're a traitor yo! Why should I stoop so low, to risk my life? No no! You're skill is low, friendship was a no show, you're loyalty is so-so!" Sulfur was then released and collided with a wall on the far side of the base, and had apparently absorbed much of the landing, causing minimal damage to the wall. "You think I want to be your rival? Maybe try revival because your words speak against survival. Challenging and threatening and mocking the one I respect. You just find a way to infect, no respect, what the heck? Could I be more direct? Only wanna see you wrecked! Hangin' out with white spinel, shootin' your best fake smile! You're fake, a flake and a wimpy little cupcake! GONNA HIT YOU WITH A RAKE! Not a brother, just another gem who disappointed me!"
Howlite smirked. Sulfur's rap was utterly dissapoining. Time to put him in his place. He cleared his throat and began to rap. All I hear is disorganization. Dishonor and disregard for our tradition. You stamp your feet. You claim your land. Yet never once have you upheld the values hat you demand. So get slain by those under your command. While I keep my best friends free from your grubby hands. You lack strength. You lack capability. Sulfur you're slow, crude, and heavy. Try to strike. You'll find you've missed. When I bite, it will be swift. My might is something you can't resist. I walk with finesse while you squabble in the pits! I black out all the hope you lay will as your form will lie broken on the battlefield. A step to the side, I'm out of your swing. Left open, Cold Shot comes in for the sting. A design as precise as my fighting. And that is why I'm the one who is surviving. Come now you are doing a disservice. You're as ugly as a mutant you must've heard this. In the end only one will sand. Strength and courage are in demand. You see how i perform. You see I don't kill. A moral code that grants me endless thrill. And with your soul unpure, I will distill! I'm a Broken Knight. The task at hand, lending my family a helping hand. I'm a Broken Knight. The task at hand, protecting what I value and making a stand. Love is something you'll never understand. He took a bow then looked to Sulfur. You really thought a rap battle was a good idea? Please. Don't flatter yourself Boss.
Blue Quartz would be completely puzzled on why they broke out into a musical infront of her, procrastinating without even knowing it was a better way to explain such actions, why come all the way here trying to get myself to come and waste the time of a member. Blue would then listen towards there rapping and it seems as though they both were roasting each other in a way, she had to put an end to all this nonsense, Blue would then let go of Sulfur's ankles and walked a with feet away from him. As she would then place her palm upon the platform of the area she concentrated, suddenly my her eye glowed in a lime green variation as she was forming the roots under them to swarm together to from two hands, as the roots started to stretch out a sudden rumble would occur shaking the base.
Blue would narrow her eye unemotionally sprinting into action, under them both she would attempt to use one the grab sulfur's entire body including his face not to poof him but to just keep him at bay; she then would use the other root hand to try and clench onto Howlite's body, if successful they would be in her grasp unable to move just yet. Blue gazed upon them both," What is wrong with you both, we are speaking on a matter of the broken gems and you wildly attack him! You then brake Into a rap battle and for what! to prove something? Howlite let sulfur be, if he tries such things push it aside, he can't get under your gem like that anymore, I never want to see you beg like that again.. Sulfur enough of this alright it is simply un called for and out of the previous matter we were supposed to be doing in the first place.." she'd say calmly yet gulf in rage internally at how they both were acting, yet she still was trying keeping some balance in this situation.
Sulfur seemed to be somewhat fascinated by Blue's attack. He seemed to think that she wanted to join them. He darted out of the way, having to dodge the large roots several times. He breathed heavily after successfully dodging the roots. This didn't hit Sulfur, but it kept him from attacking Howlite further. Sulfur grinned and was prepared to continue rapping but then as Blue spoke he calmed down.
"You're right. Enough singing. I am unable to express myself effectively taking this path." Sulfur approached Howlite and glared into his eyes. "You call yourself my friend... that's disgusting. You have betrayed me, challenged me, and now you openly insulted someone I admire... that hurts me you know? What sort of friend would do that!? You don't do anything that a friend would do!"
Sulfur clenched his fists.
"I`ll make you a deal. I will not send you on any missions from Morion. My intent was not to worship some homeworld gem, but to go on a hunt like we used to... but if rebelling against homeworld is such a big deal to you then I would rather to do it alone. In return all I ask is that next time you feel any animosity toward Smoky Quartz that you keep it to yourself! Is that too much? If you really are my friend then prove it... you're a fraud."
Sulfur turned away from him.
"If you have nothing important to say then I`ll just go back to the castle."
Howlite sidestepped the hand and shot it, causing it to break. Upon hearing the word fraud he laughed, He laughed hard and crazily. It was terrifying how loud and manic it was. It echoed all throughout the lab. He looked to Sulfur with cold dead eyes. You arrogant fool. You are so quick to blame me and insult me yet you've never realized that you are no better than me. Let's consider our Track Record shall we? You poofed me because Morion told you to. You ordered me to poof my best friend as a test. You say I can express my opinion but if it's negative you get pissed. I stopped killing and expressed my opinion. Who's really the fraud here. Go back to your castle Sulfur. From this point on, I am still a Broken Gem, we are still allies, but we are not friends. Maybe one day you'll see your error. So long Sufur. He turned to Blue. Party's now at my place. I'll send you the coordinates soon. He gave Blue a hug. Thanks back there. And I'm sorry I broke the hand. Take care of yourself Blue. I'll see you at the party. He pulled his hood up over his head and left the building.
Blue Quartz would then see that Sulfur evaded her rooted structures in which then she simply watched what to occur next, guess she finally made it stop, they begun speaking which led to something she never thought would happen, Howlite laughing as such, it didn't frighten her rather it was a surprise is all as she generally never seen much of the crazyside of him.
As she'd be hugged she would then narrow her eye wanting to fix this, " Thank you, I'll be there and you takecare as well Howlite don't go to that bar again and-" the door slammed, he was gone. Blue would then look at Sulfur walking up to him with her arms crossed," I'm not saying for you to chase after him, but you and only you can fix this, I can see you've said some things you've been wanting to get off your chest yet you must let go Sulfur.. holding on to grudges shall only stress you even more out, either you or Howlite needs to be the bigger gem about this.. I know this little situation shall pass as I know you still care for him as a brother, same goes with him, this is what brothers do especially, they argue, and it's quite understandable however the only way that this is can change simply is by talking it out.. believe it or not you made me open that door.. now..go ahead and take a load off at your castle.." she'd way holding her arms feeling bad for the both of them.
Sulfur looked at the floor. He put his hand over his face.
"He wants it to be at his place because he's plotting to trap me..." Sulfur said. "That's definitely what this is... You can't blame me for not trusting him... I wish I could..."
Sulfur turned toward Blue Quartz. There were tears in his eyes.
"No..you're wrong...I can't fix this. When I met all of you I decided to hang out with you because I believed that you all were like me. You aren't... Howlite deep down is a good guy with a conscience. I lost mine two thousand years ago. He expected me to change overnight...and he's not accepting me for who I am." He mumbled. "I can't fix this because I'm not who he wanted me to be... I've tried to change, but it hasn't been enough. He wanted me to change too fast.... If he wants to talk to me about this then he can come to my castle. If not, I`ll be alone and able to brood in peace..."
Sulfur looked at the doorway.
"I`ll never meet someone like me...I'm one of a kind."
Blue looked at Sulfur as he seemed miserable, she would speak some since into his head to ensure of his mindset's safety," Sulfur, why exactly would you think he would do such a thing, trusting can be difficult but isnt life about that, taking risk? What do you fear exactly even if he does capture you? He doesn't shatter so what's the worse he could do.. manipulate you with his charm? Or try to beat you down with his words because from what I see he pleasures your presence.. he wouldn't do such a thing to you.." she said.
Blue became slightly confused yet still sympathetic once he begun to tear up," Sulfur I thought you saw us well me as only something as use, if I wasn't of use to you wouldn't be bothered with me correct? Sulfur.. your not expected to do anything, I nor Howlite nor any one can expect change out of you, if you once had it you can regain it, yet your holding on to something that's what's blocking you from doing so, something triggers this apathetic and settling manner, you dont have to change if you don't want to just be who you truly are inside, be who you want to be for Diamonds sake." She says softly gazing straight into his eyes," I'm sure Howlite doesn't want you to change so quickly, if that was the case he would either done something drastic for you to do so or he would've gone and never returned to us at all yet he is still here because he loves you for you, no gem ever had the relationship you with you that you have with him aside from emerald, your crying over him, so it's says something sulfur.. let it go.. your not free.. I see it.. just let it all go..and be who you want" she'd say calmly while watching him look at the doorway.
"He would. Howlite isn't someone I trust. He isn't someone I can predict... He's a cold blooded killer one second... and buddy-buddy with White Spinel the next." Sulfur grumbled. "If he is as insane as I think he is, he would shatter me, but he might do worse... he may corrupt me by letting a monster into a room with me, and allowing it to infect me."
He then looked at Blue Quartz slowly as she spoke.
"You are of no use to me... you rely too much on your feelings, this limits you. If your usage was what matters to me then I would have probably poofed you and given your gem to Morion for some extra admiration. The same goes for Howlite... I don't care for the Diamonds, I only allied myself with homeworld because I respect Smoky Quartz." He said bluntly. "I want to be Emerald's vengeance... I want to eradicate gems and inflict the same suffering on them as they did on her, no I want to magnify that suffering... but I can't. You and Howlite are not allowing me... and it's not physical resistance. You've made me see gems differently... coming to earth has also done that. I feel like I'm useless... and that would be okay if I were happy. Without a friend I can trust I am not happy. I do not trust Howlite. My complacent attitude that I have adopted to pacify you two is useless! Now it is part of who I am..."
Sulfur looked at the floor again.
"I will never as long as I live be tricked again by him..." Sulfur hissed. His expression softened. "...It hurts."
Blue Quartz would then narrow her eye at Sulfur while frowning his mouth slightly, she listened to every word he said and simply wen onward towards the halls walking away from as she didn't have nothing else to say to him," you know where the door is, well be in touch..." she'd say whole heading up stairs to sector A-1. Blue then would go into her office where she then simply sat down in her chair and put her elbows on the table while clenching her hair in intense frustration as she always knew she was treated as a pawn but to generally hear it from sulfur's mouth was unbearable to listen to. Blue then swiped a file from the screens to add the video recording she took of the indicident they had, she then would swipe the screen to make it vanish heading out her office and to sector B-1 to see her chambers.
"What are you so mad about?" Came a voice. Sulfur was levitating beside her. Apparently he had been able to follow her without making a sound.
"You seem to have a lot on your mind. I understand if you would rather deal with it alone, but you seem to have no shame in asking for aid in dealing with your own issues. You don't fear looking weak in asking for help." Sulfur then rubbed the back of his head, undoing his ponytail. "What I meant to say... was that I feel obligated to offer moral support for you. You attempted to sympathize with me... and so, it is only fair. I will go to my castle and brood over all of this, but I can not without confirming that your condition isn't below average, or that you don't want my sympathy."
As she would be followed into her office she would then narrow her eye while looking at sulfur," I'm fine.. you don't need to support me.. you just do you and I'll just do me, well do our fair share of missions but thats about it, I'm useless huh, well take the useless gem's advice and just go.." she'd say while peering her eye at him like an eagle looking for its prey.
As she didn't want to speak with sulfur anymore at the moment, she was already be in her feelings about what happened before know this just made it even worse, she is always was able to forgive but never forget. Blue would then stand at the entrance of her office while moving her arms at the door in indication that she wanted him to leave her base so he could have his time at the castle. Blue looked at him one last time for today," Go to the castle this useless gem helped you build.. go to the land this useless em helped you obtain.." she then says looking away from him.
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
