Bloodstone had popped out of the warp pad, stepping out ahead of Jazz as the two arrived from the Sky Spire in a small cave.
"Don't worry, this is just part of the journey in the first place. Once we get out of here, there should be a short walk to the shack."
The cave had been modified to a miniature base for Bloodstones personal use. There appeared to be a small bed, desk, anything that a gem may need if the shack was unable to be of use
"So...what'd you think of the ride? Was that your first time using a warp pad in awhile?"
Bloodstone giggled as she let Jazz look around the area, taking in the surroundings before they would move onto the shack and the rest of Beach City that was outside. Octi didn't want to seem rude, though.

Jazz steps out of the Warp Pad behind Bloodstone. She looks around the cave and takes in her surroundings. She thinks the cave looks homely.
"This is an interesting place to set up a home for yourself. Right next to a Warp Pad too." She laughs to herself a bit. "And yes, it was the first time I have used the Warp Pads in one or two years so it threw me off a bit. But I will get used to it again if I start using them more often."
Jazz looks out from the mouth of the cave and has a of excitement glimmer shine in her eyes as she looks out upon the beach. She is excited about the prospects of meeting other gems and ending her forced solitude.
"That's good to know, and thank you. Glad i could at least make the experience decent for you."
Octi led Jazz out of the cave, outside to the bright white sands and ocean, along with their shack
"Well...that house that you see is where I normally live. It's not much but it's been enough to sustain me over the various years."
Bloodstone would then point down the beach to a distant structure, as well as several others clustered together
"Down that way is Beach City and the Crystal Temple. The temple's where all of the Crystal Gems live and that town that you see in the distance is where the humans live! They're all quite nice, I can assure you"

Jazz nods and listens to Bloodstone as she explains the surroundings. Jazz is curious about the humans in the city, she has not met any humans before at least none she can remember very well. The Crystal Temple she could make out was peaking her interest, she had not seen anything else like it in her time on the run. The shack that Bloodstone used as her home looked somewhat small when compared to the Temple and the City, but that is okay.
"This place looks like it will end up being a new experience. I am interested in the Temple and the Crystal Gems, but also the humans. So I will let you take the lead."
Flurry was back to one of her favorite hobbies, shell collecting. The gem hummed as she lightly walked along the beach. It was nice to drop by the beach, nobody liked being cooped up in a smoky forge. She combed the beach with her eyes, searching for any sort of shell that looked interesting. She picked up a clam shell, an oyster shell, a swirly shell, an even saw a dead eel! She decided not to pick up that last one. Eventually she approached a shack. She rarely went to this part of the beach, but the shack had always been there. She saw two gems outside the shack, would she finally find out who lived there? Throwing caution to the wind she approached the structure, beaming happily.
Jazz followed behind Bloodstone as she is lead to the shack. She looks curiously upon the shack itself and then the new Gem right in front of her.
"I assume you were not expecting any?" She comments after Bloodstone walks over to Flurry. She then comes up behind Bloodstone, catching the introductions being made. "Hi, like they said, I am Jazz. It is nice to meet you. And I would like to meet the Crystal Gems, even though I only heard of you recently. Well the name of the group at least, I knew that there were rebel gems." Jazz smiles awkwardly and rubs the back of her head. Hopefully she is not making the wrong impression here with this gem.
Flurry smiled at Bloodstone's question and nodded. She seemed to be happy that he had even asked.
"I am Flurry! I'm a Crystal gem! If you wanna see the temple it's- " Suddenly Flurry gasped, noticing that this could be a trap. She shifted nervously from foot to foot, averting her eyes from the gems. She grumbled nervously and her eyes darted back and forth. She put her fingers in her mouth and chewed on her nails for a bit. However she quickly turned back to face them and started to twirl one of her pigtails. She wore a skeptical look that had a touch of anger and confusion in it. "Not like I don't trust you guys or anything, but why would you want to go to the temple? "
Bloodstone watched as Flurry got nervous, and of course that would make sense. Blood would likely act the same way if they were in Flurry's position
"Well, my friend Jazz here wanted to meet the Crystal Gems. She's a Jasper who apparently just rebelled from Homeworld. I found her at the Sky Spire, hiding in one of the caves. She seemed pretty scared"
Octi looked up at the shack
"Don't worry, I'm not a Homeworld spy or anything like that. I've been living in this place for a long time and I haven't actually talked to a Diamond or soldier on communications for a long time. So I have no reason to harm you. Besides, I'm friends with one of the other gems um...Meta, I believe?"
Jazz listens to how Flurry reacted, noticing her posture change. Oh... right... she forgot about the fact that most rebels do not trust any other gems... Well, she has to deal with that now. At least Bloodstone is putting in a good word, at least Jazz hopes so. Hopefully 'Meta' will ring some bells for this gem and get them both a bit of trust. Maybe they will listen if she explains herself a bit.
"I was made in an Earth Kindergarden. And until two years ago, even though it was not a pleasant time in my life, I was a part of Pink Diamond's forces here. When Rose Quartz sent her message I ran away from my post and have been on the run since... I am tiring of isolation and hiding though. I want to fight back, and Bloodstone made it sound like the 'Crystal Gems' were my best bet. I am sorry if I came off suspicious, trust me I understand that, but I am telling the truth." Jazz does her best to come off confident but it is clear she is worried about blowing her chance with the Crystal Gems.
Flurry looked at them both suspiciously for a long while, folding her arms. She eventually closed her eyes and looked at the floor. She opened her mouth to speak.
"You wanna be a crystal gem!? Super cool! I can take you straight to the temple! " She said, unfolding her arms and perking up, looking into their eyes. "I don't know who meta is, but I think he's a crystal gem I haven't met yet! C'mon right this way! "
She giggled and hopped into the air. A tiny cloud formed under her and she sat on it, crossing her legs. The cloud slowly floated under her, serving as a form of mobility. She smiled at them and motioned for them to follow her as she made her way to the temple.
Bloodstone would smile as Jazz spoke, letting her explain to Flurry before looking in surprise as Flurry formed a tiny cloud underneath her
"Alright..very well then, let's go!"
Octi would nod at Jazz before setting off after Flurry, humming and putting away any chains that may have scared Flurry to some degree. As the bigger gem would catch up, she'd look down at Flurry while she was on her cloud
"So uh..>Flurry, if I may ask, how long have you been with the Crystal Gems? Like a specific length of time or...just in general? I'm just curious."
They'd shrug and look back at the shack, deciding they'd just come back and go inside whenever they were done with the Temple
Jazz smiles a bit as Bloodstone and Flurry start leading the way. Jazz is getting excited, she is actually going to meet the Crystal Gems! She is glad she did not mess up her chance at having Flurry introduce her to the Temple. Jazz heads off and catches up with the other two gems ahead of her and mostly listens as Bloodstone asks Flurry about herself. She is curious herself but since Bloodstone asked first, she is content to listen for now. But she would answer any questions Flurry or Bloodstone ask her. Hope is twinkling in Jazz's eyes as she is following and listening to the other two gems. Maybe there will be a chance for her to make some friends among the Crystal Gems.
"Hmm.... I guess I haven't thought much about that... I don't know... a little while? " She giggled, shrugging. "Well... I don't know the exact time... but I already feel at home. The Crystal gems aren't an army like homeworld, we're a family... Like humans have! We all are best buds and when we're not we work it out! I love it when that happens... "
She sighed in refreshment at the idea. They soon reached the Temple. Flurry's eyes widened with joy as she hopped from her cloud. The Cloud vanished instantly as she got off of it. She ran up the steps of the wood stairs in front of the temple, stopping to pose proudly at it's door.
"That's fair enough I suppose. Good reason to be happy"
Bloodstone smiled and looked up whenever they reached the temple, admittedly nervous and excited at the same time
"So uh...feel like I should ask ahead of time..are there going to be any other Crystal Gems here besides you? And if so, what should me and Jazz say? Because if they're going to look at us like you did at first...well the results probably wouldn't be good"
Bloodstone laughed nervously but was very serious at the same time. She didn't want to turn the rest of the Crystal Gems against herself and Jazz, afraid of how badly they may have to fight their way out of it if such a situation occurred
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.

Differances Between the Roleplay and the Show

*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
