Painite was...confused, at first, but at the same time she'd also felt a warmth jolt through her body, a new, tingly sensation that filled her up and made her all fuzzy. She knew this...this action, this touch, she'd seen a few humans do it, it was Kissing, or, something with a K. She sat there motionless, and in silence for quite some time, eyes wide and not quite sure what to do. What should she do? Was she supposed to just sit there and take it, and not do anything, was she supposed to kiss back? Was she supposed to do something else?
Painite hadn't the slightest idea, so, she just did what she remembered Humans doing.
She brought her hand up to his cheek, pressing her lips back against his and trying to copy the kissing motions she'd witnessed; of which there were few, so it was a bit clumsy at first. Her breath was gentle, and it washed over his face as she breathed through her nose in a gentle, shivering breath as she experienced this new sensation...
Every ounce of his being was filled with an indescribably warm feeling, never before had he felt so intensely about anything positive like this. It was always something else, anger towards those who had mistreated him or sadness about the futility of his struggles on occasion. But this time, this time was pure bliss. He sat in silence for a moment, his breathing beginning to steady as he maintained this awkward, yet passionate moment, savouring every precious second.
Eventually he pulled back a little, gently splitting it off and staring Painite in the eyes mere inches from her face, still blushing profusely mind you. He couldn't help but stare, it was such a sudden move, he'd always taken everything he'd done so slowly and cautiously, but why now was he acting so boldly?
Titanite took a moment, before flopping back onto the grass staring up at the glimmering leaves backed by the now starry night. A moment of silence passes, before he speaks up.
"I uh, well I guess that happened..." He said quietly. "It felt... It felt so right to do that, just then. I can't quite explain it, but I just acted. Like it was some kind of instinct y'know? I guess this is what love is huh? I just never expected something like that to just, catch me by surprise."
As he was drifting off into his own thoughts, he just realised that he'd suddenly kissed someone out of a brash instinct that had washed over him. He sat up a little and looked over at Painite, a slightly worried expression on his face.
"Oh god...! That wasn't out of line or anything was it?! Agh... Everything's just, just, moving so goddamn fast all of a sudden..."

Painite looked surprised to say the least, and her gaze remained fixated firmly on Titanite. She looked very much caught off guard, and perhaps slightly emberassed, but, overall she looked alright! She felt a bit confused, though, unsure as to what this meant about Titanite and how he felt for her, he said "Love", but, she wasn;t entirely sure what that meant, to be honest...
Painite blinked, looking at him with a gentle, playful smile, laughing gently as he began to apologize. "No, no, you're fine..." She gently wiped a thumb over her mouth, cleaning an excess strand of drool from it before slumping back against the tree. "I've just...never been kissed before, is all, that was...a new experience." She laughed softly, folding her hands over her stomach and looking back over at him. She seemed oddly calm, for such things to have just happened. "What in the world compelled you to do such a thing?" She said gently, a small grin on her face as she looked over at him and asked her question. He was interesting for sure, and she wasn't entirely too sure what to think of him yet. He seemed kind enough, and smart enough, but each time she looked at him there was this burning, pulsing reminder that if a war ever did come, they would be on opposite sides, most likely...she wasn't sure how close she wanted to let anyone get right now, but, just for a moment, she allowed herself to let her guard down.
Titanite thought for a moment, absentmindedly staring at the sky as he did. What had compelled him to do such a thing? He kept coming up with various reasons in his head, but none of them really seemed to click, in truth he couldn't really explain why he decided to do it. He looked back over at Painite as he spoke up.
"I'm, well, I'm not at all sure what compelled me to do so. It was almost some kind of an instinctual thing I guess? I know that sounds pretty bad, but that's kinda the only way I can explain it. ...Well at least I think, the moment just felt right y'know? My emotions kinda get the better of me at the worst of times anyway, not that it was a 'worst time' or anything!" He said. As he said this a short, rather quiet laugh escaped his mouth. It was just, unusual. Something about Painite was different when compared to the other gems he'd met, he just felt much more comfortable around her. Ironic, considering how much his anxiety was acting up around her.
"Y'know, I almost don't want this moment to end. Knowing that there's someone else to share moments like these with just makes me feel so at ease. I could lie here for hours and just stare up at the stars above, this is why I love this planet. Simple things like these make life that little bit better." He said in a calm voice. As he said this he flashed Painite a gentle smile, before returning his gaze to the skies.
Something suddenly felt off however. His concentration had been so affixed on the recently occurring events that his ESP hadn't quite been working, and for a split second something lurked very closely to the perimeters of it. He couldn't quite make out what it was, due to the distance, however he knew something was there. But, from what he could assume it wasn't going to do anything about them just yet. He knew that there was quite a lot of wildlife residing on this island, but he decided he'd try keep his attention moreso on his ESP for the moment. It could have very well been a bird, but it had been well overdue for a corruption to come bursting onto this island paradise of his to wreak havoc. Even if it was he knew he'd be fine to deal with it, he chose not to draw any attention to it since this moment was too precious to him. Even if it were only another few seconds, he wanted this moment to last.

"It felt...nice" She said gently, bringing two fingers up to her lips, thinking on the new taste that had been left on them after such an action. She felt kind of warm, fuzzy even! She rather liked it. She looked over at him again, smiling gently and finding herself to relax a slight more. Crystal Gem or not, he seemed really nice, she felt like she could trust him, even if perhaps he didn't entirely trust her...she'd do right by him, though, for as long as she was physically able, she'd do right by this one, particular Crystal Gem...
She suddenly leaned back over to him, without much warning or buildup, she reached out and cupped his cheek, pulling them both closer to each other and pushing their lips to meet once more. She wanted to try it again, experience it when she was more prepared and ready to process how it felt. She wasn't entirely sure of the social connotations of such an action, but, she knew humans did it to show feelings for each other, so, Painite figured she'd give it another try. She hoped she wasn't overstepping any sort of boundary, and as she bit his bottom lip gently, and pressed in more intensely, she found herself enjoying the warmth this provided in her chest, more and more.
"Well I'm, I'm certainly glad you think so. ...I can't help but feel the same way." He responded casually. Every moment he spent here made him feel at peace. He almost considered leaning over and kissing Painite once more, as he'd done just prior. However, it seemed that she had the same idea.
He was caught off guard as Painite suddenly pulled their faces closer to one another, firing up the passion in the moment once more. His body tensed up briefly, before he eased back into the kiss he'd suddenly been pulled into. As opposed to the fiery feeling that'd surged through his body last time, the feeling that he experienced was much more relaxed. Almost comforting even, as he moved his hands up to Painite's shoulders, gently grasping them as he tried to maintain this moment of passion for as long as he could.
This had to mean something. He never expected Painite to all of a sudden 'return the favour' so to speak. Perhaps there really was a connection between the two? His mind was too hazy to think much more for the moment. His thoughts, not to mention his whole body seemed to be overwhelmed by this warm, fuzzy sort of feeling. Kissing really was a powerful way to exchange feelings with another.

Painite held the kiss firmly for a solid fifteen seconds, before slowly pulling away and holding a soft, passionate gaze. After a second she cleared her throat, eyes darting downwards as she leaned back and used her thumb to wipe her lower lip. "Eh-hem, sorry." She said, clearing her throat as she leaned back against the tree. Her stomach felt fuzzy, and she was confused, but, she tried to focus on the feeling of happiness, single it out and really let that feeling overtake her. She could deal with the other stuff later. For now, she wanted to enjoy this.
"I'm sorry," She repeated, "I just...wanted to see what it felt like when I was prepared for it, that's all." She laughed gently, adjusting a stray strand of hair as she leaned back against the tree once more. "This is really nice...I like it here, I like being here with you, it's so bright and peaceful...I just got caught up in it for a second, I guess..." A small grin grew on her face. "I-I hope I didn't do anything bad, just now." She seemed a bit nervous, a bit of shame beginning to grow within her. "I know humans do that all the time, I just don't know if there's any like...social connotation to it, like something you have to have done before or some context...it all sounds really confusing..."
As the kiss broke once more, Titanite was left in a brief daze, caught up in Painite's eyes as he briefly struggled to comprehend what had just happened. Though he snapped back to reality as Painite began to speak once again, it was kinda nice knowing that she'd felt the same he had earlier.
"Oh! No no, it's perfectly fine, I get how you feel. It's really easy to get caught up in your emotions, especially on this planet. ...I've learnt that the hard way. Besides, it was, well it was nice. I suppose we'd experienced that sort of thing from both ends now eh?" He said with a slightly nervous tone.
Painite's confusion about it's social connotations were well founded, he'd been around humans for quite some time and even he didn't get it half the time.
"Yeah, the social connotations of that sort of stuff is really weird when it comes to humans. Though, one thing I know for sure is that they only really do it if the two in question care about one another a lot. Guess that says something about us huh?" He said calmly.
He sat in silence for a moment, considering all of the possibilities the future held. He knew that a war was coming, it was inevitable. All this time he'd spent with the Crystal Gems had been leading up to this moment, yet ironically enough his strongest bonds were with gems of a homeworld allegiance. He dreaded the day where he had to fight against the constant, overbearing forces of homeworld, especially if it was against Painite. He'd only known her for about a day, yet he already cared enough to go against the idea of hurting her. If her loyalties remained as adamant with her Diamond as she said they were, he felt as though it would be inevitable. He tried to shake these unsettling thoughts out of his mind, these things were problems for the future, and right now he wanted to spend this moments in peace. Even if a war was coming, he didn't have to worry about it right now.

Painite laughed dryly, staring out into the sky around her as she sunk back into thought. Should she even be here, doing this? Should she even be allowing herself such...human fancies? Part of it felt wrong, though try as she might to ignore it, she couldn't escape the fact that this Gem...was a Crystal Gem, a rebel, someone who'd fight against her if forced to do so.
Someone she'd fight against if called to do so.
At least she told herself she'd only do it if forced.
She'd never had any sort of relationship before, not since the whole mess with her other Guards, her friends. Just her luck she'd make friends with a Crystal Gem, right? God what was she doing? She was pulling herself down into this mess of thought, unable to determine if she should be allowing herself such things. What would her Diamond do if she knew she was here? What would Pink Diamond do?
She'd grown rather teary, and hadn't realized it. "I...I should go." She said suddenly, clearing her throat and sniffling a bit, bringing the back of her hand up to dry her eyes. She laughed gently, clearing her throat and looking over at him with a genuine smile. "I need to get back to my post, anyway....not that anyone's there to make the rounds and making sure I'm actually there, but, it'd be just my luck that something interesting happens the second I leave!" She stood up, placing a hand against the tree to help herself up and looking down at Titanite; or over if he'd stood up by then. She laughed again, "I...I really had a good time, though. I'm still rather confused about what happened. You're talking about a lot of things I don't really understand, but..." She paused, not actually sure what else to say about it. "Yeah, I had a good time..."
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.
