The message was on backup when it reached Meta Autunite. She hadn't been awake on its intial dispatch. But she had jury-rigged her own little control rook deep in the heart of the Crystal Temple, and the ancilla she'd wired in was programmed to collect all inbound transmissions from non-humans sources.
It was a calm night when Meta finally reached Variscite's call to arms.
It made her smile. It may have happened weeks ago, while she was still out.... But that was precisely why it was so inspiring. Gems HAD been fighting in her absense. It felt almost like an assurance. That even when she failed, even should she one day be shattered, there would always be others waiting to carry the cause forwards.
Em pressed her face against a window. She had been window shopping, and saw a large crowd of humans around tv's that were on sale. She had managed to push her way through, and watched the transmission closely. Why can't they just stop? They're just pointlessly getting themselves crushed. They know that right? I understand that they want to protect the earth. It's understandable; earth is a pretty lovely place. Now, the crystal gems were continuing on their path of self destruction. Do they really think they can beat homeworld? Em walked out of the crowd lost in thought, and went outside of the mall. She sat down on a bench trying to think. She felt a longing to help the crystal gems, but from what she could tell it was suicide. She had only met one or two crystal gems the entire time she had been on earth. Could they actually have enough gems to defend this planet? Did they actually have any battle plans? Do they even think they have an real chance of winning? They're defying the purpose they were made for! They're obliviously trying to gain roles they weren't even made for, but... Just the thought of staying on this planet, and forgetting the diamonds. It sounds like a truly amazing life. It wouldn't even be a life though, because I'm sure the diamonds will crush every rebel. Even though Em had started to become attached to this planet, she was just to scared to stand up for it. "I guess I'm still defending homeworld. Defending homeworld as I've always been, and always will be." Em spoke in a solemn tone before standing up from the bench, and heading back to beach city.
Iolite was walking down one of the grungier parts of empire city, about to finish her walk home to her equally grungy apartment. On the way, amidst the crowd was a stall, ignored by everyone else. The man running it seemed half mad, raving about government conspiracies and such, but one phrase caught her attention. Crystal Gems.
She bought a copy of the tape he was selling and immediately smashed the stall to bits, no one needs to know about this. After booting up the tape, Iolite was greeted by an unfamiliar gem, not that there are many familiar gems to her on this planet, even less the ones she doesn't want to snap in half.
It was a crystal gem ranting about fighting back, nothing that interested Iolite, It was probably quite outdated, by how much, she wasn't sure. He mentioned gems in Empire City, which simply infuriated her.
Where? What am I missing? Iolite shouted at the monitor, slamming her coffee table with her fist. She hadn't met any gems in empire city, not sane ones anyway. Was she too late? Did they know that she was looking for them?
Iolite looked out of her window, the brightest lights of the higher class city shone not too far away. That was the only part of the city that was ever shown on tv, rather than the poorer area of her residence. She had gone there a few times investigating but thought as no gem would compromise their identity so poorly, as the flashiness of that district and seemly constant partying would leave any gem exposed.
Maybe she had been overlooking somethings, these gems have been here much longer than she has, maybe they were more deeply ingrained in human society as she thought. Iolite took her leather jacket off the coat hanger and grabbed her belt. She had some investigating to do.

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.
