Light was running to the Empire City during the night. Lady Para... it was a tragicstory. Light can't believe it is real she. He thinksthat someone is co troling her... or something like that. "She would never do that to me! Never..." Light could see a big ship of Morion's. Maybe he would help "Maybe you know what can we do..." Pearl tried to not cry. But he was bad at trying.
Finnaly, he was in the City. Streets were full of humans in weird clothes. Most of humans looked just like the others, like every human had the same style. Seeing someone in a tunic was probably the weird thing to see. However the whole city knew about Light arleady so noone was laughing.
Light was running to the elevator that would take him to the ship. Some humans would look at him and wonder what happened. He tried to figure out how the elevator works. He clicked something and machine started to move. "I am usually patient but this time I want you stupid machine to be faster!"
Light was checking every room in the big ship. When he finnaly found the right one (you choose what it is) he yelled "MOOORION!!!!" By accident he fall to the ground and landed on his knees. He got up as fast as posible and took few big breaths "Please help..."
The Smoky Quartz was sitting in his throne-like command chair on the birdge of the Derelict Around him like a glowing sphere, there were holo monitors; countless screens showing the city, the facilites, the areas under his influence... and under his watchfull eyes, like Beach City, Glass City, the several columbian strongholds, the labs and kindergartens Corridors, rooms, laboratories, hangars... The M Tower's important areas Projects and experiments Traning grounds and shipments, commerce and the Human TV chanels The green and blue holo monitors and screens surrounded him, like a sphere Spheres within spheres, slowly rotating around the throne like command chair Two of the Black Guard (human "quartzes" he liked to call them, were the special warriors of his; humans from all over his criminal empire, web of influence. And humans who had joined his cause. Police mans, soldiers, thugs... it mattered not, where did they came from, two things were immportant and common in them: They were - first and foremost - Humans, sons and daughters of the Planet Earth And they all had some previous experience with war and fighting, be it a street gang, the army, or anything They had the warriors heart The third common thing was: they were all trained by the Smoky Quartz, personally Dressed in black SWAT-like body armour, mimicing the smoky Quartz Gem armor, with a Blue Diamond insignia on their chest, armed with heavy weaponry) accompanied Light to their Boss The Smoky Quartz looked to the arrived Pearl
"...if the Artisan sent you, please tell her, finding a Sapphire for her experiments is a hard work! I know the clock is ticking, but even Archangel can't find them, they are Oracles! We have to be patient, and wait them to come us out of their own free will.... that is, unless she changed her mind and tell me where I can find some Crystal Gem Sapphires for her to capture..."
He murmured, and turned of the monitors; the glowing spheres dissapred and he stood up, walked to the Pearl, sending away his guards, helping up the fragile little Gem
"Everything is all right my friend? You look troubled... "
Light tried to relax, running for few houres would make everyone really tired."I uhh.... It is... about Lady Para! She... is using corrupted gems as power source."
Light looked at Morion with confused look "Wait what? She would never-" Lady Para never told Light about a Sapphire. What was she going to do with such a gem? And capturing a Crystal Gem? Did Para forgot that they used to be her friends? Was she ready to hurt Crystal Sapphire with nickname Crys (Light is really good at giving nicknames)? It was too much. Light looked at Para liked at a good gem with rules. That she would never hurt an Innocent creature. This Para wasn't the same Para he met. "What are you talking about?! What experiments? What sapphire?" Light started to cry a little "You are okay with this...?"
The Smoky Quartz watched the upset Pearl in silence Finally, he put his hands on the Gem's shoulder
"Calm down my friend. Please... then tell me Light Mocha Pearl, did you remeber our first meeting? When we first met?"
Morion asked quietly
"Remember what did me and Chip asked from you? What was that strange, important question of ours you tried to ignore, tried to not to hear... and refused to answer?"
The Smoky Quartz waited a bit
"Come... lets go to the Sanctum. You can think of my question'till we arrive. There we could talk. In private. I have no secrets before my Human friends, but I think it would be better if we would be alone this time..."
Morion invited the Pearl for a little walk in to the heart of the ship
"How could I forgot..." Meeting Morion and Chip for the first time was probably one of he scariest experiences in Pearl's whole life. The worst one was when Howlite completly destroyed his gem room, killed a human, stole pearls and made Mocha come back to live. It is hard to believe that he did all of this in one day.
"I agree... it is a gem business and noone except us should talk about this..." Light was acting blue. It was easy to spot it on his face and hear it in his voice. It sounded like he was going to cry like a baby soon. There was a reason though. The one that was like a Mother and friend for him betrayed him. Did she really forgot that Ligt used to be a power source? It is probably the worst thing after being corrupted. If gem is suppose to be a power source even shattering must be better. At least that is what Light thought.
He followed Morion. After a while he spoke again "I do remember your question, why are you mentioning it?"
"I reminded you to that question, to remind you the consequences of one's actions! And about responsibility...and to prepare you what I will tel you. Please hear me out, and I'm not going to lie to you, it will be a bit... sad and serious"
They stepped in the Sanctum
"Tell me Light, did you ever hear the tragedy of Padparadscha The Wise? I thought not. It’s not a story the Crystal Gems would tell you..."
The Smoky Quartz smiled sadly
"It is a story about a Gem, who want peace. End this insane war. Now, tell me Light, If my Artisan ally would invent a machine, superweapon that could end this once and for all, BUT it would require a Gem to sacrifice herself... what do you think, would she sacrifice You? To end this war? To save billions of humans, countles species, plants, animals, the whole planet...? Would she sacrifice you? Or any Gem? But I have a better question! Would you sacrifice yourself to power that machine? "
He asked quietly
Let me... enlighten you my friend! The Crystal Gems are not doing the Rebellion for the planet... they are rebelling purely for selfish reasons!"
"If they would do this for the Planet, the Crystal Gems would already exterminated the Humans!"
The Smoky Quartz turned on the holo monitors
"Humanity destroyed faster their planet than a continent full of Kindergartens! They consuming the earth and the forests..."
"...they poisoning the air..."
"... not to mention the waters..."
"...and somehow managed to make even fire toxic and deadly!"
Morion turned off the device
"The Crystal Gems rebelled for themselves, not for planets! Oh naturally it sound pretty cool! 'We did it for the humans and the planet! We rebelling for them...' Lies my friend, lies. They are doing purely for themselves! If they would care for the planet, they would stopped the humans... lets say, a hundred years ago! They did nothing, just watched as the humans started to suck out the life of their own homeplanet and killed each other... for money. And pretty pretty things."
The Smoky Quartz sat down in his chair
"My whole criminal empire is based on this fact Light! No... sorry my boy, but your beloved rebeles done nothing! More so, they are doing nothing even in this very moment to save the planet from its inevitable fate! In another hundred years Humans will make this planet inhabitable for themselves... no more forest, no more clear night skies, no more kittens or cookies... just grim, dark wastelands, littered with deformed skeletons and ash..."
He leaned back
"The Independents are even worse... the Crystal Gems are rebelling for their own selfish reasons... but the Independents? "We want to do nothing with this war! Leave meeeeeee aloooooneeeee..." Hah! Spoiled kids, the Rebels at least fighting for themselves!"
"You know, once I told Chip to go to the Crystal Gems... Join them! And see for himself! With his own eyes! See as they do NOTHING! Ask them: 'guys, what are you want to do with humanity?' Lets pretend for a minute, Pink Diamond will give the Earth to the Rebels and the Humans, and the Empire simply leave... after all, this is their suposed goal, am I right? What will the Crystal Gems do? Whats their plans? They will sit back, and relax, and watch as humanity continue its self-destructive ways? Or the Crystal Gems will leave Earth too? Tell me Light, what do you think? Or... they will judge humanity too numerous, too numerous for this planet to support and start the Culling... reducing Humanity to the 1% of its curent population, to give the planet a chance to survive its own natives? They will forbid the use of fossil fuels, the factories, the cars, the power plants and so on... basically anihiliate humanity's current power, social and economic strucutre? They will outlaw wars and conflicts, so no more weapons of mass destruction and deaths...? And keep the peace with Iron fist?
The Quartz shook his head
"This planet is doomed. At this point, or at any point of the conflict between the Rebels and Loyals, every further conflict would be pointless. Already too many good Gems died. Not to mention Humans. And plants. Animals. You name it... This is why we are working on that cloaking field, that is strong enough to hide a whole Planet- Or the whole Solar System-, Humanity's future home free from the sins and mistakes of the Past! Give them a chance, a new start, a home far and hidden from the eyes of the Gems. This is why I want to give them clean energy, shields and deffensive weapons. Another chance, a clean start on a new Word, or if everything failed, to escape to another reality, an alternate timeline."
He nodded, he felt old, and tired
"The end justifies the means.
Morion rubbed the bridge of his nose
"I never lied to you my firend... so I will not hide the fact from you, When I started my plans and projects... experiments, the first problem was the energy. Humanity is great and all, but they never mastered the art how to harness the energies of the cosmos. Just scratchning the surface with the renewable energy soruces, like solar or wind power... some of them had theories about the null point energy. After working together the human peridots, the scientist of them, we managed to build an energy converter, using human and Gem technology. And captured Crystal Gems and Corrupted Gems as power source. Chip accepted it. Like my allies, including Bloodstone, your friend... I have to admit orur generators NOT as efficient as our devices that uses Gems as powersources, or energy cells; but efficent enough to power Empire City and its deffense systems with only one. After this war and when Humanity was relocated to its new home, we will have time to develope something else, but untill then, we have to work with this. "
He shook his head
"You asked me on the bridge, am I okay with Padparadscha's methods, or not. The answer? Yes. Becasue I've done things you can't possibly immagine. Sacrificed too much to go back... and I would do them again.
The smoky Quartz looked to Light
"The end justifies the means.
"When I asked Padparadscha's hep to build a Gate to other, pararel unvierses, to escape there, she told me, it is possible, but she need a Sapphire to experiment on, to build it. Do you know, what was my answer? 'Then point me to one of your ex-Crystal Gem firends!' And you know why? Becasue even with the Archangel Network, it is impossible to find someone who can see the future! So capturing one is a tricky business! But the birght side, I don't have to hunt down one. Becasue they are Oracles! Sooner or later one Sapphire will realise, Padparadscha and I, and all of my allies, like Bloodstone, Carbide, Agate, Spider, Chip, even Her Majesty's, White Diamond's Grand Inquisitor , his excellency, the exalted Opalite, we are doing this for the Peace! To end this insanity and to save as many Gems, humans, plants, animals, Humanity's art, culture, basically EVERYTHING as possible... and the price? A noble sacrifice from a Sapphire. Tell my Light Mocha Pearl, can you accept this? The fact, sometimes, whe all have to make sacrifices to achive something good? The simple, universal fact: The end justifies the means?
The Quartz watched the Pearl with tired, silver eyes
"I can understand, If you don't want, or can't accept this. And I can't blame you, to be honest. And luckly you don't have to. It is our "sin". Please, just let us carry this burden... and try to forgive us."
Morion stood up and extended his hand to Light
"Stay with me... help me to convince Padparadscha to follow me, and my orders, so she would be free from her own guilt and conscience! Help me to free her from it... and allow me carry this weight, the burden of the responsibility for everything, not her!
Light noded and started listening to Morion's words. He had no iddz that it will be such a serious talk.
"No, she never told me about her past, does it really matter?"
Morion had a point, Light wasn't sure how to answer all of this questions "She would never do that to me. We would find another solution, something better. Would I..." Light decided to not answer Morion's last question.
Light yelled "Wait... WHAT?! That doesn't make sense, why would Crystal gems kill all the humans?!" Pearl looked at the hologram monitor. Light knew that humans are destroying Earth. But he never saw it. It trully was terrible and a big problem. "It is true that humans are little selfish creatures that destroy a lot of things on their path. But we are nothing better, we destroy whole planets... and not every humans is like that."
Light summoned his own 3 holograms (I was planing to use some photos but I have some problems, sorry). There was a parrot on the first hologram. It had no feathers nd a human was taking care of it by giving it clothes, so the poor little creature would be warm "Some of them are helping ill, old or harmed animals"
On the second hologram there were ond of the most famous paintings on the world "They are able to express their feelings by art."
On the last hologram there was a marvelous forest "Some of them fix other people mistakes."
"Killing all the humans would be a terrible thing to do. They still need to learn what is important. Noone will be ever perfect but I am sure that in the future will understand what are they doing to the planet. They just need to see it, some of humans arleady started warming their people about the consequences. If you thing they are so bad why won't you kill them? After all you also adore Earth. If you will give them a new home they will treat it like old Earth. We need to solve problems, not run from them."
Sadly Morion was right agqin. Some of Crystal Gems rebelled for themself. Blue Emerald and Flint Quartz rebelled to be free from homeworld. But when Morion offered the the life on the loyalists side they agreed without thinking, because that way they are free from war. "Yes but... not every Crystal Gem is like that! As long as there are good, sensitive humans here, kittens, cookies, forests, clear night skies will survive!"
"When there will be no more conflicts between us and Homworld we will stay! We will show humans that taking care of the nature is important! We will also stay to be guardians of this planet if something bad was going to happen."
Light was shocked, he really was okay with Para doing such a bad thing. He ha no idea what to say
Pearl suddenly summoned his gem weapon and throw it to Morion "Fine! Do what you want! But I want you to do something." Light looked back, he was sure if he really want to this. He turned back to Morion "Replace one of the gems from the power source with mine. What is the different anyway. From the perspective of Homworld everyone that is rebel, corrupted or too weak should not be allowed to live." Light yelled again "Just do it! Here is my sacrifise! You only need to destroy mt physical form, kt happened a lot of times arleady anyway."
Pearl landed on his knees. He was scared, tears were coming from his eyes.
"Yes Light, you are right, Humans, like Gems, have the ability to be good and caring. But like us, they could be monsters. Sadly, the humans already destroyed their own homeworld, and there is no hope to repair the damages they have done. There are seven billion humans on Earth Light. Seven billion! They are spread like a virus, consumed everything... the planet can't heal itself while so many humans around. Actually talked a lot about this with the Human scientist themselves, and some Gems, and they are all came to the conclusion, to save the homeworld of humanity, everybody, including the humans themselves, need to left the planet alone. To heal!"
The Smoky Quartz explained quietly
"And even if Humanity suddenly vanish, it would take thousands if not ten thousands of years. Or more! Take the plastic for example! To make them takes 1 minute. They use it? About ten minute. And it can take even 1000 years to biodegrade, or more! And this is just one plastic bag or bottle! And there are the poisoned water and earth, the destroyed ecosystems, ozone layer, radiation, the species hunted to exticintion... destroyed rainforests and the list is basically endless!"
Morion shook his head
"But put aside all this, and lets talk about the cold, hard facts! The Gem Empire is multigalactical, vast network of colonies in several Galaxies, hyperadvanced and militaristic. Earth is deffensless, and even if we could give Earth and the humans the tools to defend it, it would only mean a long war, dragging for centuries... countless lifes lost and the planet rendered to a lifeless rock. The Rebellion is pointless my dear friend."
He pated the poor Pearl on the back
"BUT there is still hope! The planet would die either way, maybe the war destorys it, maybe the humans, maybe it became a colony... but one thing is sure: tere is no future for humanity on this world. But we can help them, give them a new, hidden home, to give them a chance to live, and rebuild their society. And to prepare the unavoidable confrontation with our people, the Gems. But Humans are crafty little monkeys, give them tools, give them resurces and in hundred years they almost mastered space travel from steam engines! The cloaking device I asked from our Artisan friend can give them thosuands of years to develope, and with the Gem refugees living with them, every help and scientific avancement of the Gems will be theirs!"
Morion explained calmly
"Maybe once Humanity even could reclaim their planet from us... or give it a new life. The future is full of possibilites for them, but now, the best course of action is to end this war and leave the Planet. Retreat and regroup."
He lovered his hand and rested on his cane "I will not going to poof you Light... I need you! But not as a powersource! You don't have to sacrifice yourself to power some engine, or weapon! Thet would be noble, yet a bit cowardly. I need you to be brave! Stay and help me, help the humans! They need light to lead them in the darkness, need you and Gems like you."
Morion kneeld before the kneeling Gem, and gently touched his face, raised his head, to se his tear soaked eyes
"Please Light, help me to give the Humans and Gems a better future"
"That is not true! The planet is not desroyed yet! We can't just this planet die! But yes... maybe Humans would need to leave Earth for a while. When they will understand that they need to care about the planet, they could come back. But How? How are we suppose to transfer all humans to the new world? And at that time Homeworld will arleady kill Earth! And than they will destroy life on every other planet, we are not fighting for Earth, we are fighting for life!"
Light wasn't sure what should he say. This situation was so complicated. No matter what he will do, something bad will happen.
"What about all the living creatures we will left here! When Homeworld will destroy it and become more powerful! We won't be able to stop them, they will take control over everything! Humans won't be strong enough to reclaim the planet."
Light got up and turned around "What are you talking about? Why do humans need me...?"
"Earth will be destroyed Light, either by the Humans, either by the War, or if not by those two, then by the colonization process... but the first to options ends with a lifeless husk. Worthless even for colonization. We are not fighting for anything... please try to listen for reasons and facts! You CAN'T fight an advanced and agressive, militant Empire with stones and sticks! Just look up the sky, there is a fleet around the moon, Hand Ships ready to rain death and destruction down on our head and Earth have nothing! And that is actually GOOD! You know why? Becasue if Earth would have a deffense system, the Rebels would have ships and soldiers, then Yellow Diamond would have a reason to destroy everything and everyone on this world! But at the moment the Rebellion is nothing more than a sick joke, but I thanks the Moon Goddess for that! So Pink Diamond have an excuse to not make her move giving the Rebeles time to surender! And end this peacefully. Any further fighting would only risk countless loss of life!"
Morion explained calmy
"I have a sad news for you my dear friend! We don't want to save all the Humans. Seven billion humans would only ruin their new home. We are only going to save OUR humans, loyal to US. It is that simple. Actually..."
He summoned a monitor with some data
"The humans come to the conclusion, a colony could be created with between 14,000 and 40,000 people. For the genetic diversity and avoid inbreeding and such. It is complicated, biological life forms are complicated. The Derelict is capable to transport more humans than needed for Humanity to survive. Their history, culture, art, everything. Not to mention the animals and plants. But this is why Padparadscha is working on a gate to other worlds, alternate timelines and dimensions, pararel Earths without Gems. But I always wanted, as a Planc C, to recruit some Peridots to repair the Galaxy Warp the Crystal Gems destroyed, to use it to save Humans....
Morion watched the holo
"The universe is a big place... and with a cloacking device, we could hide the planet, or as I said, the whole solar system from the scouts of the Gems. The humans and plants, and animals and Gems we will left behind will die. The Crystal Gems doomed them with this Rebellion Light Mocha Pearl! I know it is hard to accept, but the fact is, the Kindergartens on Earth and colonization while it would have killed Earth eventually, that would have take thousands of years, tens of thousands if not more! The Gems arrived to Earth way before humanity even existed, yet the Planet was still full of life when the ancestors of Humanity fell down the trees... and evolved to humans. Before the Rebellion started, humanity was killing their own homeplanet faster than the Kindergartens ever! Now? After the Crystal Gems rebelled and angered the Diamonds, everything went to hell in just four short years. Can you understand this Light? The weight of their crime? All in the name of "life" and "freedom" they only brough death and destruction to this Planet and robbed Earth and Humanity from their future! A grim and dark future, but a future non the less... There is no hope to win this, becasue there is nothing to win! This isn't a war Light, this is Armaggeddon packed in a cute little box, love from Rose Quartz. "
The Smoky Quartz shook his head
"You could fight, of course, sacrifice even more innocent Gems and humans... or you could accept the facts and help us save some of them and what we could save from Earth to give them a chance for a future the Rebellion took from them!"
He watched the Pearl
"...hey will need heroes. Like Chip. Something, someone they can belive and turn to protection, guidance, advice. Padparadscha is as social as a brick, Bloodstone is popular, but to weird and Me? I am their dark guardian angel, but I never will be more than a respected but ultimately feared shadowy figure. I could change my face, my gender, my masks, but we don't need more lies... we need Gems like you Light! Chip is... or was, until Sulfur destroyed his soul and the weight of the sacrifices we had to make, he was a hero to them. But the humans started to worry now he is not patroling the sky on his fiery wings, flaming lance. You need to take his position as their portector, untill Chip is recovered enough to continnue. And then you two could work together. My point is, untill we could leave this Planet, they need something to give them enough hope. Then after we left, they will need you guys even more!"
Morion picked up the weapon and handed to the Gem
"This is why I need you Light Mocha Pearl! To be a hero"
Light felt like he is giving up. Morion was right in nearly everything... but he couldn't jist sacrifise everything he believed in. He cleaned his face from tears and tried to act as serious as posible.
"No! It is not true! Earth can survive! We need to fight, it will inspire gems in Homeworld to join us! There is a small change that we will win. And if we will, Homeworld will have not a lot of resources. The used so many to make machines, weapons and gems. They will be in bad situation, we might stop them from destroying planets forever. Morion... we can't run. I am pretty sure Diamonds will find out about humans sooner or later and they will destroy them. The only way is fighting or transporting humans to another dimension. However we don't know if this plan will even come to live before the invasion. My point is that no matter what, there will be a countless loss of life."
Light realized something. He promised Para that he will never leave her again. But he was a coward and run. Now he knew what to do.
"I and Para will help you with the device that will take us to another dimensions. We will also help you in the device that might be able to hide the whole solar system, even thought Diamonds will find us sooner or later. BUT this is a plan B. When Homeworld will attack we are gonna fight. "
Light was a really shocked about Morion's comment. He? Hero? If not the fact that Light was sad and it was Morion (who never make jokes) he would probably laugh.
"If I was a hero I wouldn't have time to take care of animals and garden in my gem room and I am pretty sure that I am weird, just like Bloody. You are definitly better option, or Flint... if he will finnaly think about something else than Blue. There is also a person that needs me more than humans."
Liht whispered something to himself "I am sorry that I let you down Lady Para..." He started to run to the door. He bad a bright smile and tears in eyes"It was nice to talk with you Morion! You nearly changed my mind!" He believed that everything will be okay now. He just need to talk with Para about her plan.
"No my friend, the planet will not survive... nor the humans or the Gems on it, figthing pointless, stupid wars. Their misguided faith in something that will never happen will only ends in the deaths of billions. Not to mention the hypocrisy..."
The smoky Quartz resten on his kane with both hands, silver eyes watched the Pearl
"...they have dragged the planet down to the fiery pits of Hell itself, in to a war that would never would have happen for what? For "freedom" and the "Planet", for themselves... Disgusting! What about the rest of the universe, other planets? Who cares as long as the Diamonds leave this planet and the Rebels alone?"
His voice and face was full of disgust
"Sorry Light. Earth will not survive. And I think deep inside you, you know that, but don't want to accept, because it would mean, your would have to face the truths about yourself and Padparadscha. And that would propably kill you. I can't blame you. For that anyway. For helping destroying the planet and Gems? That is a crime I can't forgive Light Mocha Pearl! But I will let you live. There’s no point for me in killing an opponent. That way, they won’t know they’ve lost, and to be a real winner you have to have an opponent who is beaten and knows it. There’s no triumph over a corpse, but a beaten opponent, who will remain beaten every day of the remainder of their sad and wretched life, is something to treasure! I will let you live Pearl, long enough to see this world burn. I will be there next to you and I will remind you, it is your fault too what happened... you had the chance to leave this behind and save them, instead you forced war, suffering, death and destruction on the humans, animals and all of their offsprings! Before I leave this world, I will visit you to point out to the ruined planet full of ashes and smoke, and I will ask you: "
He leaned closer to Light
"Was it worth it?"
The Smoky Quartz opened the otherwise locked door before the Pearl
"Go. Go back to your keeper and Master. Tell her you made today a choice. She will support you, of course. Or at least she will pretend it to keep you on her side. Padparadscha will help me to achive my goals, she will build me what I need to help those who have to suffer becouse the Crystal Gems. I don't care if she belives in your pathetic hopes and dreams about the gloriuos victory over the Diamonds or not! As long as she do everything she have to to make me that cloacking field, deffense system, and Gate to other realities... in the end, she will joins me and leave you behind. Or not. Actually it is not that improtant to me. She knows it, we are using each other. And if anything, this fact tells you about someting important about your "friend" Light. Padparadscha is a Gem like me. And in a sense, you too. I will let you live in denial... no point to waste time or words on changing your mind. It is enough for me, Padparadscha will either joins me, and the future of humanity will be in greater safety than without her or stay a "Rebel" despised by other Rebels and fight a lost war, to the point she can't live longer with the burden of her crimes against the world and its natives she helped to destroy and asks you to shatter her, like you asked me to poof you and improson you for an eternity in a device."
The assassin voice was dark and cold
"I can see in to your heart Light... deep in your heart you know I am right, and the horrible things Padparadscha had done so far and will do in the future. And realised you helped her. Living such weight is hard, so you wanted to poof and suffer, pay for your past, present and future crimes by powering a device. But as I said, I will let you live Light Mocha Pearl... in my eyes, there is no bigger punsihmet for you!"
The Humans accompanied Light out
"Give my regards to Padparadscha... and tell her, I will deliver the Gems and that Sapphire for her experiments, and the shippment of materials will continue. And if she needs more Gem powered generators.. tell her, just call me. After all... I am her friend and Ally!"
Morion laughed Then returned to the bridge (if Light left without comment or not changed his mind)
"Weren't you the one who said that they are alot of timelines? Shouldn't there be one were Rebels won the Earth and live with humans in peace? Yes... a lot of innocents life will die... but not as many if we let diamonds take the planet. All animals, llants, gems and humans will die except the ones you will take with yourself if we will lose. If we will give up from the other hand... the same think will happen, I don't believe diamonds will let rebels live. If we will win, more life will survive and Earth shouldn't be attacked by homeworld in the future."
He looked for the last time at the door "You don't need to be like that, you could join us... and save our home." Light wasn't sure if he heard that.
When Morion's humans came he simply followed the to the exit door. It was Night arleady, marvelous night in the Empire City, home of the many humans. Light made a mistake by coming here, it was the waste of the time. He wanted Morion to help him figure out what was going on with Lady Para. But he was only suppose to talk with her. He started running tk the Forge, he could still fix everything.

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.

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!

Chatoyant Aquamarine: Ah, and that's true. The art's mine, could go edit that into the app before I forget. x)

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

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!

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

njrk97: has not become that prevalent.

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.

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
