Cinnabar knocked on the door softly, hoping that someone was in. She and Topaz had arrived here a couple of minutes ago, and she was kinda nervous, cos she didn't know what would happen if she introduced Topaz. She still held the piece of tech she had taken from the beach earlier. She saw the door was open, but didn't want to interrupt. Inside, a Gem was tinkering with some stuff. Cinnabar just stood and watched as they worked. The room itself was dark, and the only light came from the lit furnace.
"So, you can ask them if you'd like to get something from here." Cinnabar told Topaz "Oh, and I forgot to mention. We Gems could also fuse with another Gem to form something bigger and stronger if we so choose."
She then turned around and resumed watching the third Gem working.

Topaz was still dazed and a bit disappointed as she followed Cinna. Why was that gem so rude to them? They were just trying to make friends? It was so weird to her. And all the stuff they muttered about was even stranger. But what really disappointed her was that gem did not told her why her outfit had a diamond symbol on it. It was just like hers when she woke up but was yellow..
Her eyes traveled around the place finally landing on the gem that was working on whatever it was. She was about to question what was happening before Cinna spoke then she closed it again. "Like what? Do they have something like what came out of your gem? And fusion...that sounds cool! Can we try? What does it feel like?"

The Forge was rather dimly lit, light just barely visible through various cracks in the floor. Para had been working to clean up the main room before getting down to business, as the observing gems would see she gripped a large hammer in both hands at the moment. Walking over to a raised part of the floor Para brought the hammer down onto it, leaving the stone to slowly slide back down until it was indiscernible from the rest of the floor. As it did she took a step backward, avoid the magma that began to flow from higher up the volcano.
The newly diverted magma spread through the crevices of the wall, lighting up the facility and providing power to its systems. Turning around Para could just make out the newcomers in the bright light, "Ah, Cinnabar is that you? I hadn't expected to see you so soon. And who is your friend?" She set the hammer down off the side and walked up to the anvil, using it almost like a table between them, "Come on, make yourselves at home."
"Hello." Cinnabar said "This is London Blue Topaz. We came because she wanted some of your weapons as well, and I came to deliver this."
She carefully laid the item she was carrying on the nearby table. She then turned around, facing Topaz
"Yes, they do. You can choose the one that suits you." Cinnabar explained "And yes, we can fuse, but we can't do it here. We need a large area to try."
She moved over to the doorframe and leaned against it, watching and wondering what was going to happen next. She felt an odd familiarity when it came to Topaz, and it was almost as if she had her old friend with her again, but that was impossible, and Cinnabar knew it. Her friend was shattered. This was just an odd coincidence. Sentimentality wasn't going to help her in this situation. She decided to go search for the Gem that made the broadcast earlier after this.
"I am gonna try and find someone." Cinnabar looked up "Do you want to join me in the search, Topaz? We'll have plenty of opportunities to try and fuse along the way too, if you want that."

Topaz shyly waved her hand in a greeting. This gem looked slightly dangerous but if Cinna trusted her then she did all the same. But there was something about her that seemed..off. She shrugged it off though, and nodded to Cinna offer. "Yes! That sounds interesting!"
Topaz followed Cinna sticking to her like glue. She did not want to be stuck in here with a gem that's wielding a hammer. She was fine with gems that didn't have weapons but those that have them in their hands she did not trust. Cinna did have weapons from her gem but Cinna is different.. They were friends that's all she can ask for. One of the lights from the floor hit her gem clearly showing it cracked in a corner.
Topaz perked up as Cinna started talking then nodded. "Yes! I will help you even if you don't mind. That sounds fun."

Para looked the item over before storing it away, "Thank you dear, this should prove rather useful in the future. Now, as for a weapon..." she looked to Topaz, "Allow me to show you the display, yes? You can have a look to see if anything catches your eye." Walking across the room Para grabbed hanging chain connected up to a system in the roof. Upon yanking it down a number of different chains lowered from the top of the room into view, each with a different weapon attached to the end of them.
She rejoined the two of them at the anvil, "I keep the finest collections on these chains, but-" she gestured to the walls where a number of other weapons were also hanging, "-there is also a selection available along the sides. And of course, if nothing pops out at you then I can simply create something from scratch." With all that said and done Para sat back down and simply watched, taking great interest in Topaz.
Cinnabar watched the events unfold, and her mind wandered. She wondered what would her fusion with Topaz look like if they managed it. She also wondered what will happen if they managed to find that Gem. Then her mind started to remember the time she was happy, the time when Moonstone was alive. She remembered the time they spent together, the adventures they had together. She remember the friend she lost because the Diamonds were too scared of change. Her fist clenched. The Diamonds had to pay.
She looked at the two Gems again. She shivered slightly. She had lost one friend again, she didn't want to lose another one as well. Even if it meant being shattered herself, she wouldn't let history repeat itself. After all, being dead was better than being alive and alone.

Topaz gazed about in awe at the different weapons she reached for a thin sword with amazing dazzling stones on it and of course on the handle a bright star on it. She was about to try it when over her shoulder she caught Cinna shivering and looking uneasy. Carefully hooking the sword back to place she rushed over to her friends side taking Cinna hand in hers, Topaz face was full of worry.
"What's wrong, Cinna? Is it the idea of this fusion thing? Cause if so we don't have to do it." Then in a whisper under her breath, "Or is it me..?" She could tell there was a deep sadness in Cinna eyes as she looked at her. Did she did something wrong?
Cinnabar looked at Topaz, and she was once more reminded of her old friend.
"No, it's not that, it's not your fault." she was quick to clarify "I want to fuse with you. It's just, well, you remind me of a friend I used to have. I feel like I was given another chance to have a friend, and I guess I just don't want to lose another friend."
She paused, and looked around for a while, hoping for something to distract her. Finally, she looked at Topaz again. She didn't want Topaz to notice, because she didn't want her to worry too much.
"How about you take something which suits you, then we can go on an adventure and practice fusion?" Cinnabar suggested instead
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

*Garnet,Pearl and Rose broke the space warps to delay Homeworld
*Thanks to Roses Message gems now know what the Kindergarten was used for
