When Pearl insulted her, Blue began to get angry. Her breathing became heavy and her tomahawk appeared in her hand. Then he insulted Flint! She charged at Pearl with the intent to hack him into pieces. She swung her tomahawk at Pearl's gem but before the hit connected, Howlite's rifle stock collided with her skull, causing her to drop her weapon. Then she was shoved to the ground.
"No! I won't let you hurt Flint!"
She stood back up and summoned 3 Holo Blues. They all drew their tomahawks and charged at Howlite. As they dealt with the Broken Gem, she charged back at Pearl.
"I'm gonna cut you to pieces! Maybe I'll even impress Flint!"
Light decided to don't react to what Flint said. Talking wouldn't help now. He also didn't really understand their motives. Why being poofed made him realized who he is? But it wasn't time for this. He had ro act, not thing. After all Lady Para was here! And someone had to protect her.
light made a battle position. He didn't want to attack first. The ones who attack first usually lose. It is important to stay calm and wait for a perfect moment to attack the enmy. Of course Light had problems with staying calm... But he have menaged to do it somehow! It was because he was figting for Lady Para! And with the help of Howlite they could actually win this battle! He saw that Lady Para has got something in mind "Huh? Lady Para whata are you doing?" Soon it become clear, she had some sort of weapon with her! Light summoned 3 holo pearls. Holo #4, Holo#2 and Holo#1. "Protect Lady Para!" Holo#4 and Holo#2 were doing orders without thinking. They summoned their swords and stood near Padparadscha. However Holo#1 quickly took the cage with Ibi and joined the lest of the crew. It was weird because it didn't get any order to protect the bird...
Suddenly Blue attacked. Something schocked Light, Howlite saved him! Howlite arleady answered this quesrion... but Light was still wondering why he actually do all of this. Why did he care so much about him? Why not about, Mocha, Sulfur or someone? Light didn't really do anything to become his friend.
Blue get up from the ground and come back to action "Why do you want to impress him at the first place?! Doesn't he like you the way you are?!" He summoned a simple hologram on her face to confuse her (holograms are made out of light, so it is like I was using torch near your eyes) and simply jumped out of her way.He than placed his leg infront of Blue so she would fall again. After she fall he was pointing his weapon at Blue. But it wasn't just a simple stick anymore, it was upgraded by Lady Para! Opponents didn't know that of course! But it was able to shoot lasers now! Maybe it wasn't the strongest weapon... but it was really useful sometimes at work to cut something or save someone's life.
As the bullet struck his gem Flint howled in pain. He examined the wound. A nice little crack in the center of his gem. He then looked at Pearl who was aiming his stick.
"Don't touch my wife!"
He charged at Pearl full speed in the hopes to collide his large figure into him. As he ran, he bursted into flames and drew his spear. If successful, he would impale Pearl. The very notion that he could beat Flint was an insult. He was a soldier! A war hero! Pearl was a servant! A shiny toy meant for Diamonds! This gem deserved to be incinerated for all the trouble he'd caused. This miserable rebel was no more than a punk. He'd vaporize the guy.

Undisturbed Para made short work of the task at hand, although it took all of her abilities not to be distracted with Light's situation. At least they had bought her the time that was very much needed. Wires were formed within the metal gloves, interlacing all through the gaps within the metal bands that made its form. Notably there were three indents on the back of a larger plate that covered the back of the hand, as well as larger indents where the palms of the glove would be.
Fiddling with her bag Para produced six of her shocking devices, slotting one into each of the spaces on the back of the gloves. With that done she slipped them both on, the gems in her palms fitting snugly into the larger slots. When it was all done she had managed to assemble some rather ramshackle looking armored gauntlets, upon inspection she was rather happy with it.
Striking a pose Para clenched her hands into fists, in an instant the air surrounding the gauntlets was filled by the sound of crackling and barely visible electricity arcing from the devices along the knuckles, "Alright, let's do this!"
Moving from an angle Para got between Flint and Light, using a single armored hand to shove his weapon aside and the other to attempt a punch in his side. It was a calculated strike, while Para was clumsy on her feet her hands were precise. If the blow made contact it wouldn't strike very hard (she was a rather weak gem after all), the real effect would be the power within the devices housed in the knuckle-slots. The feeling of the electric shock would be akin to that of a gem destabilizer, albeit less powerful by a large degree. Still, the intention was to disorient and weaken rather than poof with this weapon, hopefully buying Light the window to get a strike in.

Blue let out a high pitched shriek when Pearl blinded her. She got pushed to the ground.
"You're just a worthless Pearl! What are you going to do? Kill me? I know you won't. You lack the spine! And for your information, Flint does like me the way I am. But impressing him now and again makes me happy."
Her vision slowly returned and she saw the weapon. She used her tomahawk to knock it out if the way. She shot back up and growled. Suddenly she heard Flint scream. She saw Para with her gauntlets.
She charged Para and began to swing wildly not caring if she actually hit her or not. But she had to help Flint! She just kept swinging and swinging.
While they were fighting Howlite decided to... sing?! It wasn't the best thing to do in such a situation! "Why are you singing?! Concentrate on battle!" However one thing about his song supresed him. What was the meaning of this?! Why was he ready to DIE for Light?! Light never do anything wo Howlite would care about him that much. It was becoming weirder and scaried in every moment.
Para had some sort of super gloves. What actually SCHOCK Light was the fact that she steeped infront of him. Was she going to punch Flint again? It seemed quite risky... But he believed that she know what she is doing. If Flint hit... maybe even both of them would poof. The regenrarion would take some time... so it would be the end. "I hope you know what you are doing..."
Holograms that were supposed to protect Lady Para followed her. Ibi was left under the tree.
Blue that was lying on the ground stood up. Light was deistracted by the fact that Lady Para is here. That is why Emerald easly got rid of Pearl's weapon. "You will impress him by acting like a monster?! "Without thinking Light used the same strategy from before. He summoned the hologram on her face to distract her. "Don't even think about this!" He than kicked her stomach. She could actually hurt Lady Para"I never thought I will do that!" The Holo Pearls were around Blue, ready to poof her in one move. Egen if she menaged to destroy one of the hologram it wouldn't really matter. The other one would finish the job
Light summoned new stick. It was time to find out if Para's machine will save them! But will it matter? Flint's attack coud hurt Blue really badly. Do Flint care more about revenge or his love? Will he stop to don't hurt her?
Flint was suddenly punched in the face by Para. He screamed in pain. After staggering for a little bit he regained his footing. He stamped his foot like a bull about to charge. Suddenly he noticed Pearl had Blue hostage. He cancelled his charge. Then he looked at Para.
"You dare hit a Quartz?!"
He then did a devastating thrust of his spear aimed at her midsection. If the attack missed than he'd tumble forward from the momentum. But if it connected it would do a great deal of damage. He wasn't going to give up! These gems had no knowledge of purpose! No sense of duty! They had to be punished! Every last one of them! He was gonna shatter Howlite first. Then Para. And then Pearl very very slowly.

It was inspiring to see how well Para and Light worked well with one another, effectively back to back fending off these two traitors (albeit with Howlite's assistance). Blue's sudden attack may have been cut short by Light, but it served to distract her from Flint's retaliation.
Acting as quickly as she could Para brought her hands up to protect her unprotected body, Flint's weapon finding purchase on the armored gauntlet of her right hand briefly before glancing off. With a resounding clang the gauntlet fell to the ground as it had been ripped from Para's hand, making it effectively useless. Thankfully the armoring protected her projection from harm, but she couldn't pull that trick again without leaving herself defenseless.
Glancing down she checked her remaining gauntlet on her left hand, noting that one of the modules on the knuckles had burnt out from the blow to Flint. As expected each one would only last for one strike before running out of power, leaving her with only two more strikes left before having to stop and replace the electric devices.
While Para wasn't exactly skilled in combat, she had spent countless hours studying its practices so that at least understood fighting in theory. As such it became apparent that staying as close to Flint was her best course, a spear's weakness was close quarters after all. In theory...
Moving forward Para brought her remaining gauntlet up for a sucker punch into Flint's gut. With a grin she retorted, "And you dare strike a Padparascha?" Seemed this quartz forgot how the pecking order worked on Homeworld, considering she was a variant strain of a Sapphire. The funniest part, to her at least, was that he'd likely be shattered for such treason if she wasn't a rebel.
Before Flint could assault Para any further, Howlite lept up onto his shoulders.
"Don't touch her!"
He put Flint in a choke hold. Then he dropped from his shoulders and rolled, causing him to flip onto the ground. Howlite brushed himself off and gave Para a wink. Then he took a defensive stance.
"Come on Flint! Hit me! It's kinda funny that a defect like me is beating a perfect Quartz. I guess maybe you're not as good a soldier as you think. That's probably it. Now hold Still for me."
He loaded a bullet into his rifle and aimed for Flint's gem. Flint was not going to hurt Light. No one hurts Light. Howlite began wondering if he should compromise his new moral code just once and kill Flint.

Blue looked around at all the holograms.
"You have good holograms Pearl. But mine are better!"
3 holograms appeared and started fighting with the Holo Pearls. During the skirmish, she slipped away. She then saw Para fighting Flint. She got ready to charge when she realized Howlite was about to shoot him.
"I won't let you hurt my husband!"
She threw her tomahawk straight at his face. She resummoned another one and charged at the Broken Knight. She never gave him a chance to breathe with a unrelenting flurry of swings. Each strike came from a different direction to make it harder to dodge. She was going to kill Howlite once and for all. She began to think of how happy Flint would be if she brought him Howlite's shards.
Light jumped a little from happiness when he saw that Para's plan worked "Great job Lady Para!"
Flint really was obsessed. He liked the idea of gems having higher and smaller ranks. But at the same time he was looking at himself like at the most important gem in the galaxy. Did he forgot that he is a soldier? Yes, Quartzes are high ranked. But he is not an Agate! He was created to fight and die for Homeworld! He was made for dirty job! Perfect or not, he was nothing if you compare him to a Sapphire, Agate, Zircon or a Diamond! Even his wife had a higher rank than him! Light just growled at the coal. Oh! He also glared at him ^^ He than noded to what Para said.
Gem was going to help Lady Para but it looked like Howlite was faster this time.
Light should have poofed Blue when he had a change. Emerald fled and left a small suprise, 3 of her holograms. Light wouldn't agree that her holograms are better. Light was just a 11 years old gem (I made a mistake in chat when I said he is nearly 20, sorry). He was a newer model! He was able to program his holigrams, even change their forms and add sounds to them. Light wasn't sure if she can do that. But she had a small advantage that she didn't use. As a fullý developed gem she was able to summon a lot of holograms. However Light could summon maximum of 4 high advanced holograms like holo pearls.
It was a match between 3 holograms and 3 holograms + Pearl. Light shot one of the opponents while it was fighting with his Holo. His other Holo wasn't lucky, it stepped on a rock and fall, it was the end for the poor hologram.
Only 2 holo pearls left... Light had to be carefull. He won't be able to summon new ones for a while. Holo#1 was in some sort of starring contest with the opponent. It was... it was... the Holo Blue that used to fuse with it long time ago. But it was over... Holo had to do the job "I need to obey the order that was given to me long time ago." Holo jumped at the Holo Blue. It was sitting on the Hologram's shoulders. It than hit the opponent with the hologram sword.
Light and his holograms that left charged at the last Holo Blue. It slipped away while cutting of Holo Pearl's legs. It also cut one of Pearl's leg a little "AGGHHH!" Light shot the hologram as fast as possible. Only Holo#1 survived.
Because of the fight with Holograms Gem didn't realize that Blue attacked Howlite (I would help but it is impossible to fit in this time.)
Flint was ready to kill Para when Howlite intervened. He hit the ground and cracked it. He got back up and glared at Howlite. Then the pest began to taunt him. Just before he could do anything, Blue threw her tomahawk into his face. Flint grinned.
"Kill him Blue! I'll handle Pearl!"
He turned to Pearl and drew his spear.
"Hold still you little wretch! The sooner you accept your fate, the sooner this will end."
His spear became coated in flames in order to assist penetration. He then charged at Pearl with all of his might. This time Blue wasn't in the way. And Howlite was distracted. No one could help the poor servant now. As he charged, he reignited, planning to hit Pearl like a flaming bus but if unsuccessful he'd lose his balance and stumble.

As the fight continued Para found herself without a direct target, Howlite and Blue were tied up (along with Blue's holograms versus Light's) and Flint seemed to be focused on Light. Her expression dropped suddenly upon seeing Light receive a minor injury on his leg, a rage briefly boiling up before it quickly turned to further fear as Flint seemed intent to skewer Light.
Without giving it a second thought Para jumped ahead of Flint as he tried to break off from their brief encounter. Her remaining gauntlet-ed hand reached out to grab Flint's spear but his charge was too fast for her, instead her gauntlet was stabbed directly on the knuckles, shattering one of the devices on the back of it. A sudden jolt of energy ran through her form (and presumably down Flint's spear) as the electricity ran from the gauntlet into her.
Stunned and injured Para was unable to move further, stopping in front of Flint. Something that had an effect similar to a bull striking a rag-doll. While it would hopefully give Light enough time to get out of the way, Para was sent flying backwards quite a distance from the fight, both burnt by Flint's aura and electrocuted from her own weapon's mechanical failure. She laid there unmoving, although not poofed, with the shattered remains of her second gauntlet sitting in a pile by her hand.
Howlite laughed when suddenly a tomahawk hit him in the face. His left eye now had a long scar going down it.
"Crap! Come at me you little Wretch!"
As Blue tried to hack him to pieces, Howlite caught her hand by the wrist.
"I'm gonna enjoy every bit of this."
He then bent her arm and swung it towards her, causing her to hit herself with her own tomahawk. He then saw Flint running at Light. Para failed to stop him. Howlite shoved Blue and took off running. Luckily he was much faster than Flint. He ran at Light.
"Get out of here!"
He shoved Light out of the way just as Flint collided with him. Howlite hit the ground, dazed and disoriented. He was badly damaged. He couldn't take much more. But he had to keep fighting! For Light! He regained his focus and took a defensive stance.
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
