Jazz nods a bit as she watches and listens to Bloodstone. She considers her options for following Bloodstone down, then she decides that she will be precocious and summon a gauntlet and a boot opposite of each other to help her climb down with her.
"I am surprised you can summon six weapons all at once, most gems I have seen can only summon two at max. I will follow your lead down but I will be moving slower behind you while I scale the mountain."
Jazz gets herself ready to climb down the mountain, positioning her body to follow behind Bloodstone. She will be ready to go whenever Bloodstone starts to descend.
"I will use your chains if I need to as we descend."
"I've had practice..you get used to these things after awhile."
Octi laughed softly before nodding, agreeing to the plan
"Sounds good to me, I'll make sure to stay good distance within hearing range then."
Bloodstone smiled at Jazz before hopping off and latching onto the side of the mountain with her chains, starting her descent
"Just let me know if you need some help! I can make these things go as far as needed!"
Bloodstone yelled up as she kept going, making her way slowly but surely as the chains were used as almost a near slingshot, just barely managing to avoid any boulders or outcroppings that may be in the way. At the same time they had to be careful, never know when a landslide may happen.

Jazz looks amused as Bloodstone uses her slingshot technique to climb down. Not a bad strategy, considering the distance they would be traversing. Jazz starts to climb down once there a bit of distance between the cliff edge and Bloodstone. Jazz uses her gauntlet and boot to give her the grip she needs for hand holds and begins to climb down after Bloodstone. As she descends along the cliff side, she thinks about how this situation could play out. She could be walking into a bad situation, with Homeworld knowing her location. She could have a good home to stay at, at least for a period. It is even possible for her to join the rebel Crystal Gems directly, which has her excited. She keeps pace as best she can as she climbs and thinks.
Bloodstone smiled, looking back every so often to see how Jazz was coming along, trying not to get too far ahead. After a few minutes, they were probably at least a quarter of the way down the mountain and were making good time.
"Doing good so far Jazz! Keep it up!"
Octi smiled as she kept slingshotting down the mountain, every so often dodging a rock or two that would fall behind them
"Keep an eye on the boulders! I have no idea how the mountain is and...admittedly I'm not exactly doing the best job. Sorry if I cause one to fall behind you!"
Bloodstone sighed as she focused on the descent again, managing to make good time, not sure just how long this may take
Jazz smiles a bit as she follows down, she notices the loose rocks and attempts to block or break any that would land on her; She makes sure none land on Bloodstone when she does this.
"Thanks Bloodstone, and I will keep my eyes out on the rocks. It will not be too bad if one does fall." Jazz calls down to her.
Jazz makes sure she keeps her grip as she goes down with Bloodstone, trying to keep up the pace that they have taken to get to their destination. She also thinks about how to best get her footing back if she gets knocked around by the rocks and looses her grip on the mountain. Hopefully that does not happen, she thinks to herself.
Bloodstone smiled when she saw that Jazz was doing her best to protect her, the two were sort of repaying each other as they made their way towards the bottom. Once they landed, Bloodstone did sort of a gymnast's roll and hopped back up, brushing themselves off and eating for Jazz to land
"The impact's not that hard once you get down here! Just try not to mess up"
Octi smirked, stretching before putting their chains away. While it was fun and all, the ride had sort of tired her arms out. Bloodstone would walk over to one of the many outcroppings and sat down, waiting for the Jasper to hit the bottom and then they would just...go from there

Jazz did her best too catch up to Bloodstone while finishing up her climb down the mountain. Once she reached the bottom of the mountain, she decided to perform a dismount off of the mountain side by jumping off a small bit and then rolling to limit the impact. After she was back on her feet Jazz brushed herself off and dismissed her weapons.
"So where will we be going next, now that we are at the bottom of the mountain. Are we going to use a warp or any other Gem transportation? I do not mind either way I am simply curious what method we will use to get to beach city." Jazz asked once she made her way over to where Bloodstone was resting.
Bloodstone smiled softly, watching Jazz land on the ground without any major issues
"Hm...well if you want, we can either warp on over to the Beach and my place, or I could show you some more of the Sky Spire now that you have some proper company and...well some protection to."
Octi looked over at the Jasper, watching her get rid of her weapons
"This Spire is somewhat..sacred in my opinion. it's a good meditation area as well as a place that...hopefully...both sides will leave intact. I worry for spots like this, y'know? Anything that just may be a bit important in terms of history, architecture, just general importance to gem society...does that make any sense?"

Jazz nods a bit in response to Bloodstone's comments on the sacred ground, and she thinks about which route she would rather follow.
"I am wanting to head out to Beach City for now. If that means using the Warp then I can do that, and I am anxious to see other gems that might share my mindset. You are fine company so far of course, I would like to meet your friend too in the Crystal gems. I do think the Temple is pretty calming and beautiful, and I can understand your worry for places like this remaining intact during or after the war."
Jazz waits for Bloodstone's final decision on which path to go along, calmly thinking about her situation.
"Very well, I suppose it's off to Beach City then. The warp pad should be just down this way"
Octi hopped up from the ground and smiled, putting her chains up and starting the walk. to the warp pad
"The warp pad should hopefully take us to this warp pad that's near my beach shack. I could get us there easily and then we'd pop up near Beach City. I haven't been able to gain the full on trust of the Crystal Gems to use their pad just yet."
She shrugged as they made their way up, Bloodstone looking over at Jazz
"I'm assuming you've been on a warp pad before? Never hurts to make sure, obviously"
Jazz nods as she listens to Bloodstone, taking in her words and noting them in the back of her mind for review later. She follows Bloodstone to the Warp Pad and stands next to her on it.
"I understand what you mean by hopefully, sometimes the Warp Pads could be a little off course. The last time I used one was before I ran away from my post. I have been trying to avoid them because other Gems use them so often and I wanted to avoid being found again, at least for a while. I might need a refresher on how to use them properly though."
Jazz waits for Bloodstone to take the reigns on the Warp Pad for them to head out.
"Fair enough. This should only last a few minutes. I just need to think up the location and the warp pad should get us there safe and sound. As long as you don't reach out from the column and fall out, I think you should be safe."
Octi sighed in relief as the warp pad started lighting up before covering the two of them in a column of light and sending them off to the beach, leaving the Sky Spire in the distance as the two gems would go off towards Beach City, the Crystal Temple and the shack that Bloodstone called home
(I suppose this might be the end of the thread..if you want to start in the Beach, you can or I can in the morning ^^')
Jazz nodded as Bloodstone explained the process of the Warp Pads to her once again. She knew she should have remembered this, but she appreciated the reminder from Bloodstone.
Once the Warp Pad started up and sent the two gems on their way, Jazz let out a very soft breath as they flowed along the warp stream. Jazz felt some more excitement as the stream took them along their way to Beach City. She was thinking about the new situation that she is currently on her way to throwing herself in the middle of. Jazz hopes that once they arrive, things will fall into place.
(Yeah, I think that would be the end of this particular thread. I would appreciate if you started the Thread in the Beach since it would technically be your turn in the tread. I would also appreciate the lead being taken when in the higher population area. )
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
