"You misinterpreted me... You are useless in combat as I cannot trust your emotions." Sulfur said, realizing that he had just said the same thing quite. "Well...what I meant to say, was that if my only concern was you abilities I would not be interested in your company. I suppose you are a scientist and could somewhat benefit me and you did help me with that castle... but that is not my reasoning for consulting you or showing any concern... You do know that showing concern is a sign of weakness, yes? I am making a sacrifice if you may..."
Sulfur then put his hands in his pockets and looked down.
"If you were nothing but a pawn then I would not have made a sacrifice for you..."
It was clear that she wasn't gonna get sulfur to leave just yet in which then she would sit back in her chair crossing her left leg on her right thigh touching her finger tips together," Sulfur.. you really need to calm down with he whole weakness thing, where no army, why even try acting so bold of ones self to seem strong? What are you gaining out of it? Respect? Fear over those weaker than ourselves? Its just too much to expect someone to do, showing emotions is something one needs to let go of stress's, even a diamond shows emotion... we are no less from them.. so drop that whole Enough baking weakness becase it makes us look bad act.. it gets old when we aren't even respected.."she'd say while closing her eye.
Blue would then go and check a few files as she was pretty much done trying to make him leave as it was no use.
Sulfur's expression when she had finished was one of utter shock. It was as if he had just learned that the world was round.
"You...don't disrespect those who show weakness...?" Sulfur said, unable to find another word to describe kindness, a subject he loosely understood. "If you don't find weakness demeaning then I suppose I will share my weakness when around you... I suppose I can. Still... this is because you glorify weakness... and I suppose if it would make you happy I will try to show...emotion? If that is what you use to describe my description of weakness..."
Sulfur became more and more confused every second. He was still determined to for once understand someone.
"I'm not doing this because it isn't old... I've been doing this my entire life. In my opinion, you lot are odd for accepting this... 'showing emotion'" He said, still unsure if he were using the right words.
Blue honestly wanted to punch Sulfur through the walls as she became infuriated on what he asked," why would I! It's unbearable to watch yes but it isn't a reason to make it a bigger deal than it already is!" she continued," glorify? Sulfur you don't have to show emotion only around me, do it anywhere you want, who cares? Your a damn rogue on a planet where you get to be yourself! Act like it!" she'd then say slamming her fist onto the table field with rage she would then get up from her chair. Blue looked back at Sukfur," Let's go" she says heading to a decent sized room that had all white tiles around them nothing pure white all over. Blue planned to show him the emotion as he needed this.
Sulfur gawked at Blue Quartz as she spoke. He felt as if she were speaking another language. All of her foreign concepts pounded his ears. He simply stared as she spoke, unable to reply. The concepts were just too abstract for him to analyze. Why was she angry? Why did she not like his own hatred for weakness? Weakness was a bad thing! Why did she expect him to show weakness everywhere!? As he walked into the room he considered why he had focused for so long on refraining to show weakness. He then realized why he had thought that way.
"I hide my emotions... because I don't want people to know how pathetic I am..." Sulfur mumbled. "I am a strong warrior... but that is all I have going for me... on the inside I am an empty shell... I feel like a fish that has been gutted and yet still lives... I don't want anyone to know what I'm like. I don't want them to see weakness in my very soul."
Blue would then gaze upon sulfur as he enters the room and begun to speak," Look, why do you even care about then opinion of others? you shouldn't be ashame of people seeing you differently just by you showing emotion, we have evil intentions yet we still feel, your adapt unlike any other gems intentional purpose was so watch an learn.." she'd say leaving the room and heading to the control room shutting the doors and locking them behind her.
As she enter the control room for this simulator room she would begin her test," Computer analyze internal gem thoughts and imageries and image them.. enchancer activate" she'd say pressing a few buttons in which then she would turn the entire room Sulfur would be in shifted into a ship hanger in space similar to homeworld's ship hanger, emerald would be virtualized running to Sulfur with tears in her eyes saying "I'm here my love!, wait for me! I'm here!" she'd say attempting to run into sulfur's arms. Blue would sit back and watch them.
Sulfur was about to reply when she suddenly slipped out of the room and locked the door. Sulfur could attack the door and probably after much effort escape the small room, yet he wanted to trust Blue Quartz. It wasn't that she had done anything to gain his trust, it was more so that she had done nothing to lose it. He wanted to trust someone, he had to trust someone. He would not survive if he doubted everyone. He simply crossed his arms and waited for whatever she had planned.
Suddenly the background changed to that of a homeworld ship hangar. He had never seen technology like this, and figured for a moment that it was a sort of teleportation device. He then saw the gem before him. At first he seemed excited, but his expression quickly darkened as the gem spoke. Emerald never acted like that. Sulfur's eyes had a wild look in them. He let out a scream. The scream wasn't like that of a human or of the average gem. It was an odd and eerie sound that sounded unearthly, even to a gem. He then quickly summoned his blades and thrust them toward the hologram. The blades darted back and forth through it. This attack was unlike any that he had exposed to Blue Quartz before. His blades moved so quickly that they looked like a blender.
It worked. Blue smiled as her prediction was actually correct, she would then power down the systems in which then ther area reverted back to it's white tiled like area again, she would then head back opening the door and crossing so arms," So, how do you feel Sulfur, give me a good explanation.." she'd say while narrowing her eye at him, she could care less of the attack he performed on the fake emerald as she was intrigued by his reaction.
Blue would then take a seat at the white rolling chair at the corner and crossed her leg," You've just showed emotion, anger, you knew that she was a fake and you now everything about her personality wise, am I right? You defend the fact that she not only is your influence in emotion but without her you became what you are today, you held onto her death not moving on with yourself which I'm sure she would want you to do if she were still alive, however then again I don't know her so I can only go off what you tell me.." she'd say while clenching her palms together.
Sulfur looked at her with dead eyes that seemed to pierce the soul. He was too furious even to glare at her. He panted from having unleashed the attack, but for a long while after she had finished speaking he did nothing but stare. Suddenly he let out another roar and started to levitate toward her. He would, if successful, grab her by the throat and slam her against the far wall.
"What kind of sadist are you Blue Quartz!? All of this talk about showing my emotions and being friends... WAS THAT ALL JUST LIES!? What went through your mind to possibly possess you to show me my deceased love!? WHY DID THAT OCCUR TO YOU AS A BRILLIANT SOLUTION!?" He roared. He then glared at her, panting heavily. "I can't move on, because there is no one like Emerald in this whole world. She was the only gem that had shown me kindness, and she was shattered...slowly...before my eyes. YOU WANT TO SEE EMOTION YOU FILTH!? YOU WILL SEE MY RAGE! "
He flicked his wrist and multiple blades appeared around them, pointed toward Blue Quartz.
As Blue would be chocked by sulfur she would simply stay there narrowing her eye at him as he spoken, he was engulfed with rage as he then was about to use his blades on her. Blue chuckled at him slightly, she could easily use her base as a way to get out of the situation but she didn't," You hesitating.. if your bold enough to attempt an attack on me do it just beware the consequences once you do so..." she'd say not caring for his look towards her, he didn't scare her not one bit as she seen far worse than this in her years of fighting. Blue gave up on sulfur, she couldnt do anything more she stood there awaiting for his move.
"Consequences!? If you believe that any tool you have in this room would be great enough to destroy me then you have thought incorrectly! I fought off Homeworld technology for an entire year! Your pitiful consequences mean nothing to me! " He shouted, not noticing that she probably was referring to regret. "I will not release you unless you apologize for assaulting my mind and working me up for nothing! "
Tears formed in his eyes.
"...I thought I had been taken to Emerald... I didn't know that it was a hallucination... I thought for a second she was still alive..." He mumbled, his expression softening. Soon however the glare returned. His swords darted closer to her, a few inches from her physical form. "APOLOGIZE NOW FOR ASSAULTING ME! WHY WOULD YOU WANT ME TO SHOW MY EMOTIONS IF YOU TAKE SUCH PLEASURE IN CRUSHING THEM LIKE YOU DID JUST NOW!? "
Blue arched her blue of an eyebrow staring at sulfur then into her base," Sulfur... as you can see.. I don't need any tools to destroy you, I've observed that no physical damage is needed to take you down, once you allow someone In your life and they show rejection towards you or merely leave your life your good as crushed.. but I'm not like that, I'm always here for you even when you get on my nerves.. it's like a curse ..a neutral curse.." she'd say speaking softly as usual.
She would then see that he brought the blades close to her body demanding that she apologize for what she did," No.. I shall into do so Sulfur.. because your doing what you despised, your showing emotion, anger and depression collides within you.. it's hard isnt it but in the very end you'll feel better, I'm sure of it.. but like I said.. I'm not apologizing for anything.. and again beware.. the consequences.." she'd say peer her eye into his as she showed no fear at all, no expression him her face.
Sulfur knew all to well about his true weakness that she was speaking of, yet he was still sure that he would have no problem dealing with her after she had mocked Emerald.
"Hmhmhmhmhmmm... " Sulfur chuckled while closing his mouth and rubbing one hand across his face. His eyes bulged as he stared at her, trying to bottle in his rage. It was true that he didn't want to attack her, he only wanted an apology for what she had done, after what she had said however he was struggling not to attack her. The blades moved steadily closer, gaining inches as they closed in. He chuckled under his breath. Suddenly he flicked his wrist and desummoned the blades. He landed on the ground about two feet in front of her and put his hands in his pockets. "What you said about being able to take me down without physical damage is true. I should not have let you into my life. If I am to be broken merely by the words and actions of a person I am weak. Do you now see the weakness I am talking about? You wronged me, you brought to life the most tragic moment in my life. I hate you... but since I have let you into my life I am now too weak to give you what you deserve. This was just an attempt to toy with my emotions and anger me for the sole purpose of watching me fail to shatter you... without even putting up a fight. Unless you have some further sadistic attempt to wound me emotionally I will be on my way."
As Blue seen him desummoned his weapons she would smile slightly, as she predicted, she would then narrow her eye while sighing as he spoke," Your not the only one fulll of anger I usually just don't let it consume is all, and by the way if words makes you weak then half the gems or even more than half are entirely weak, someone can always be triggered by either a few things, the mention and manipulation of one's lover, a secret meant to not be shared, a far beyond foolish attempt of mere rejection, and even positivity, but finally your leaving so take your leave now as I despise your presence as well." Blue walked away from Sulfur and opened the door leaving it open for sulfur to leave, she would then head to the chambers to meet up with her green pearl on the matters of her next experiment test.
Sulfur started toward the door but turned toward her when he was near the doorway.
"I will conquer my weakness Blue Quartz. I may not be the only gem that is weak, but I will not be part of the vast majority. I will never understand you, you get me to open up to you and then you plague me with visions of my past... It would only be weakness to fail to shatter one that I despise so greatly. I will learn to destroy those who I have exposed myself to and I will return for your shards Blue Quartz. You will see..."
He then hopped into the air and flew out of the door. He thought about the events that had just occurred. They were confusing, especially his own actions. One thing was for sure. He could not show emotion to those he could not trust.
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
