Blue wailed in agony as her own tomahawk hit her. Then Howlite shoved her to the ground and took off. She stood back up and watched as Flint hit Howlite. That left one target. She turned to the wounded and defenseless Para. Oh this would be easy. She would teach this clod not to mess with Flint! She slowly approached the artisan with her tomahawk in hand.
"Finally. Now I can kill you and be done with it! You made a big mistake punching my husband. I'm not a woman who forgives. Right now Howlite is injured and Pearl is distracted. No one can save you now." She pressed the blade up against the side of her neck as if she were about to decapitate her.
"You really have got nothing better to do? Find a hobby or something!" He sighed "And to be honest your motives to shatter me are totally terrible. You want to kill me because I am lower ranked? And what about you?! A Quartz that used to be a Rebel! A rebel that shaterred tons of Homeworld gems! A rebel that destroyed the space prison! A rebel that is spending time with another gem instead of doing the job! None of all the gems here are less worth than you! You are a total hypocrite! With your logic you should go shatter yourself!"
Light grabed his leg. It didn't look that bad... he was just hoping that he will be still able to defend Lady Para. Suddenly he saw Flint using the same trick again. Every power has a limit... luckly he won't be able to use it again soon.
Light wanted to run away. However his leg started to glich "Oh no..." Light white gem blood started coming from the scar. It was worse than Pearl thought.
Something impossible happened. Lady Para tried to stop this stupid Quartz from using his attack. "Lady Para No!" She failed and her body was send flying."NOOOOOO!!!!!" She hit the ground near the place where Ibi was waiting. The parrot now wasn't sleepy, he wanted to get out of here. He was sensing danger.
Light turned to Flint with a death look. The dark side was taking control over him! (Don't take it too seriously....) He shed some manly tears. He would probably run to Para if not the fact that Flint was here. That is why he made a battle position inetead. MAYBE he would be able to hit Flint's chest with his stick. After all this gem was a big pile of muscules. It was a rather big chest.... Enemy was attacking while running. So it would obviosly be painfull for him. But Light would probably fail anyway! His gem weapon was not designed to survive such an attack! There was nothing else he could do. However Howlite came to the rescue. He shoved Light and got hit by Flint instead. "Huh?!?!" Light really didn't understand why Howlite was more caring about Light's life instead of his own.
There could be heard a loud noise. It was Ibi! He tried to alarm Light! Blue started acting without a honor, she was going to hurt Para! A gem that wasn't able to fight right now. Light got mad, really mad!
He had to choose... Howlite or Para. The choice was kinda obvious, sorry Howlite... Light started running to Blue, he tried to ignore the leg problem. Holo#1 was right behind him. Suddenly Light's whole form started to glow. Only his angry eyes were brown. The pair of white wings grew on his back, he shapeshifted! Than the weird green wind covered the gem. Light flew and hit Blue in the face with nearly the speed of light! Real light!
The attack obviously made her FLEW AWAY (hahaha...). Blue Emerald wasn't that heavy. Even Light with such a high speed could do that. The funny thing is that this power was suppose to make Pearl do job faster, boost other Pearls speed and come quickly to the owner. Homeworld gems didn't expect that it can actually be good in combat.
Light's body came back to normal. Only his wings stayed, now they were brown though. He lay on his knees and looked at Para. The Holo Pearl was guarding them if Blue was going to attack again. Gem touched Para's hands gently "Lady Para, are you okay?!" The tears were coming out of his eyes "Why did you do that...?"
"You misunderstand me. The Homeworld caste is flawed. I'm referring to a much better caste. You see, putting Quartzes at the bottom is just plain stupid. And that;s not why I want to kill you. Oh no. Its because you have been nothing more than a nusiance since the moment we met. Not one thing you did actually ended well. My anniversary which was ruined. My wedding which was ruined. I could go on and on. But first I'm gonna kill Howlite!"
Flint rushed at Howlite and grabbed him by the throat.
"Best part about killing you, is that no one here would help you."
He pinned Howlite to the ground and continued to choke him.
"Did you really believe they'd help you? You're a monster. That's all you'll ever be."

Para lay unmoving until Blue came up to her, only her eyes moved while the rest of her form stayed limp. Para's voice was a whisper, "You know, the one thing I can admire is your dedication to Flint. I'd do the same for Light..." she then grinned, "You get distracted easily though."
As if on cue Light then collided with Blue, saving Para just in time. At this point she was barely able to sit up, getting about to eye level to the kneeling Light, "I've been better, but I will live dear." her eyes locked onto his and one her hands reached out to brush tears out of his face, "I couldn't just let him just spear you, I had to do something. I thought I could be useful..." Para winced a bit as she pulled herself into a standing position, "I don't know if I am going to be much more of a help, hopefully we can finish this fight before anything worse happens."
She glanced to Howlite and nodded towards him, "Do what you can, I'll handle myself." with that said she turned to face Blue, grabbing an odd device resembling two metal balls from her bag, ready for anything.
Howlite was in a bind. About to die. He looked at Light.
"I'm sorry I failed you."
Then he looked at Para.
"protect him for me. "
Then Flint said how they wouldn't help him.
"I don't expect them to Flint. Wanna know the difference between us? You're a monster who claims to be a hero. I know I'm a monster. But I've reconciled my spirit and body. I know how my story ends. It ends at the edge of a blade or the barrel of a gun. But damn it I'm gonna protect my family as long as I can. I know I'm going to burn. I've embraced my fate. And I will go gladly knowing I've kept my family safe. That's why we are different Flint. They may not try to save me... And I'd be at peace with that. I accept what I am. "
"You are not at the bottom! Near it... but you aren't!" Light growled "It wasn't my fault that it failed!"
Para's condition looked terrible. He couldn't just leave her here! "You will be much more useful when you will be alive! Don't do this for me! I don't deserve this, you do! The rebelion need you more, without you... my life does not make sense. Int hat case I will die anyway... " He grabed one of her hands gently. "You have to stay strong, I won't leave you!"
It looked like Howlite was ready to give up. it was bad, really bad. He had to think about the possible escape. But how? It lookedl like the only possible way to survive was fighting. Howlite's words schocked him "You didn't fail me..." He heard blue. Light was getting angry. Before he tried to win with the power of his inteligent. But screw this! He just wanted to defend Lady Para now. He stood up and spoke with a serious voice "Holo... go help Howlite. I will take care of her ." The hologram just looked confused. But than he noded, his eyes turned red and he charged at Flint.
Holo cut Flint's legs with his sword. Flint's legs were similar to elephant ones... He should survive this easly. Holo than grabed Howlite's hoodie as fast as possible and run from Flint. The hologram was now going to help howlite in the fight.
Light looked at the Angry Blue with a deadly look. His head was a little bit lowed down but his eyes were looking at her. He waited for a perfect moment and shot a laser from his stick. It landed perfectly on Blue's weapon. It was thrown few meters away. "Give up Blue, you can't beat us! We are better prepared!"

She glanced to Howlite, both amazed and confused by his actions. As time went on she was starting to really believe Howlite had changed, something that she had never really thought a possibility. Of course she didn't have much time to process the fact as Light grabbed her hand, managing to get her full attention. Her eyes sparkled, "T..thanks dear."
Barely reacting in time Para took a clumsy step backwards to avoid Blue's attack, almost stumbling over herself. Para readied the item in her hand to throw at Blue but saw Light beat her to it, making good use of his new laser upgrade. She would have done something to attack Blue, but noticed Flint had switched target to double team Light and that just couldn't happen.
Pressing a button on one of the two metal balls the other one of the pair slid out of Para's hand, connected to the other one by a strong string. Swinging it around her head briefly Para tossed it at Flint, using the item like a bola. Her aim was accurate as ever despite her injuries, flying straight for Flint's legs trying to tangle them up and trip him.
"They're right, this is a losing fight! Give up now and maybe you'll get some sort of mercy. Maybe..."
Howlite the ground with a roll so he wouldn't get hurt. Then he saw Flint go for Light's gem. His mind broke like glass. His hate was almost palpable. No more holding back. His eyes turned black and as he charged he began to sing.
"Before we get started I must apologize. I'm not a hero anymore so I'm not gonna be nice. I'm a soldier who put a Pearl on his shoulders. You're just a Quartz who can't hold his composure."
He did a quick kick to Flint's mouth and kept singing.
"I'm older. But I'm getting better with age. Call this a eulogy. You're getting sent to your grave."
He grabbed the stick from Flint and tossed it back to Light.
"old dog new tricks. My bite's as bad as my bark. Can't help breaking your forms. Old habits die hard."
He then grabbed Blue and shoved her to the ground.
"I've been to the grave. I've already come back but I'll be at your funeral and I'll look good in black. I'll be undertaking while my mind is breaking. Trust me I'm not the only DEAD GEM WALKING!"
He drew his rifle and fired a shot at Flint's gem. Then he charged the Quartz.
"I always got annoyed when you played boy scout. Now get destroyed how's unemployment now? You were never a commander with a butt I would kiss, speaking of which, Blue Emerald set your sights on this!"
He bashed the side of Flint's face with his rifle stock.

Blue was behind Flint afraid of what would happen if she died. Suddenly something happened to Howlite. What she saw wasn't a gem. It was a monster. It moved like a ghost and fought like the Devil. She got shoved to the ground as Flint was attacked. She ran up to Flint and tried to heal him but Howlite was too fast. Everytime she'd try to heal him, she'd get knocked off balance. They couldn't win. They were going to die. She looked up at Flint.
"Looks like this is it. If I don't make, I wanna kiss you one last time."
She climbed up to him so she could reach him. She had tears in her eyes.
"I love you Flint Quartz."
She kissed him and something happened. Their forms started to glow and meld together. They had fused! The fusion stood at 15 feet tall. He had purplish blue skin and a gem on each hand. One Flint's and one Blue's. He had purple eyes and blue hair in a crew cut. He wore a typical Homeworld uniform with the insignia on its chest and back. In its hands was a massive poleaxe. The fusion looked down at his opponents.
Holo Pearl looked aroung. It seemed like Flint only cared to kill Howlite "I feel ignored..."
Suddenly everything changed. Flint caugh Light off guard. He dared to grab Light's gem. "I am suprised you can move so fast with such a fat legs..."
Light spotted that Para used some sort of string on Flint's legs. He had an idea... "You won't believe what you can do with such a simple thing." Suddenly his gem summond his stick again, it hit Flint's face. Light than bite Flint's hands and used the situation to run to Para.
While he did it Howlite... started singing again? Light had to admit that he had a good singing voice. Something happened to him, the gem started to attack Flint and Blue like a beast! He also gave Light back his stick "Ohh thanks." He whispered something to Para "What happened to him...? and why would anyone kiss someone's butt? It sounds weird..."
Afterthose epic Howlite's moves gem's victims started acting dramatic. Blue wanted kiss Flint for the last time. Light didn't understand something "Why are they acting liek they are gonna die soon? I thought Howlite changed... and we would neever hurt anyone, right Lady Para?"
Light tired to don't look at them to don't interrupt their privacy. Suddenly he noticed that there was some sort of light. He looked at them to see that they started to fuse! Light's mough dropped, he panicked "Oh no! oh nonononono! Attack them till they aren't a fusion!" He shot 3 small lasers at them. Sadly it looks like it didn't do that much.
There they were... some sort of big fusion that looked more malny than feminie. just like Light expected. flint is the one that controls the fusion and Blue. He started shaking a little again "It is the monster from the worst nightmare..." It was actually a first time Light saw a fusion between two different gems. except that one moment in his old workplace in Howeworld. Some sort of fusion attacked this place.
(Sooo sorry for the late reply. I've had some stuff going on at home.)
Labradorite pointed the tip of his poleaxe at Howlite.
"Starting with you!"
He knew he was more than capable of killing Para and Light but as long as Howlite was protecting them, he would have a hard time. So he decided to go ahead and take him down. Only problem was that Howlite was agile and fast unlike the fusion. Then he got an idea.
"Let's see you Dodge this!"
He slammed the pommel into the ground and suddenly the ground around them starting shaking like a miniature earthquake. That would hopefully ruin the defect's perfect balance. He the charged at Howlite hoping to impale him like a kebob.
Post by Forge Master Para on Jul 28, 2017 9:04:13 GMT
(I apologize for the very delayed reply)
Again, Howlite's singing was odd but at least he was doing some serious work defeating them. Her attention turned towards finishing of Blue, watching in silent horror as things proceeded. She didn't even seem to hear Light's question as the forms of both Flint and Blue fused together as one. Her legs faltered from under her, barely keeping her standing, and all she could manage to mumble was "No no no no..."
Then her gaze slid towards Light who looked equally afraid, and he should be considering the somewhat even fight was starting to turn against them. If they failed here it would mean all three of them would be shattered, and that thought forced her to collect herself.
While Labradorite was disctract Para grabbed Light's shoulder and looked intently in his eyes, "We can still do this, if the three of us work together. A fusion of this power is... well let's just say we need to try twice as hard. Keep them distracted while Howlite gets some shots in, I'll try to keep them disoriented." her grip tightened a bit, "And stay safe. Worst case scenario, you run as fast as you can and get help."
With that said she reached into her bag and pulled out a couple of the familiar shock-disks. Running in closer Para primed and tossed three of them (leaving her with only a few more) at the fusion. The shock, if it connected, would be far from able to poof them but it would hopefully get them off of Howlite long enough for him to gather himself.
Howlite was ready to get some new toys when suddenly they fused.
Suddenly the ground began to shake and Howlite fell over. Labradorite tried to impale him, so he rolled out of the way and shot him in the gem on his stomach to stun him. He regrouped with the others, just in time for Para to reveal her plan.
"Sounds good. Light. You listen here and you listen good. If things go south, run. Run like hell and get out of here. If you died I'd never live with myself. Now Para here's the thing. That fusion had some kind of earthquake ability. Keep him distracted so he won't use it and I can put enough cracks in him to separate them."
He loaded another clip into his rifle and took aim.
Melody: Hi! Yep, that is true
Dec 30, 2019 10:51:32 GMT
Melody: honestly the site is not very active, but I try to make sure that every new player is doing okay
Dec 30, 2019 10:52:55 GMT
Melody: so feel free to message me here or on the discord if Njrk (the owner) is not answering
Dec 30, 2019 10:53:30 GMT
Melody: Also, you have got a decent app Chatoyant. I don't think you will have problems with being accepted. I am only not sure about your weapon, in the show it was very op, Njrk will have to take a closer look
Dec 30, 2019 11:07:42 GMT
Melody: It might also be good to state if you made the art for your Aquamarine or not
Dec 30, 2019 11:09:33 GMT
Fulgurite: Always wonderful to see new users. The shoutbox is still somewhat in use but the more reliable chat is the discord channel. But either way, welcome to the site.
Dec 30, 2019 11:29:49 GMT
Chatoyant Aquamarine: Thank you! Yes, that's the thing I'm still unsure about as well. I tried looking into other tractor beam and levitation based abilities that have been approved on this site and modeled and tried to nerf mine based on those. Will have to see!
Dec 30, 2019 12:58:23 GMT
Chatoyant Aquamarine: Ah, and that's true. The art's mine, could go edit that into the app before I forget. x)
Dec 30, 2019 12:59:32 GMT
Melody: I think it is good. Njrk already said it in chatbox that he is pretty busy, but I will try to inform him on discord about your app
Dec 30, 2019 13:08:05 GMT
Melody: I have got an idea. Njrk in some threads suggests that abilities/weapons could have a cooldown. It could be a nice way to nerf your weapon, but not too much. For example, maybe after using it in 2 posts it will shut down on its own for one post?
Dec 30, 2019 13:15:38 GMT
Melody: it is just a suggestion, I really don't know what Njrk will say about it
Dec 30, 2019 13:16:43 GMT
Melody: time measures, weight and stuff like that are nice, but they don't always transfer well into the roleplay. Time is especially a tricky part, that is why we usually use posts instead
Dec 30, 2019 13:20:04 GMT
Chatoyant Aquamarine: Understandable that people would be busy around this time of the year, I don't mind if I have to wait a little. A cooldown could be a good idea if it's deemed that the weapon could use a little more nerfing. I'll keep that in mind!
Dec 30, 2019 13:31:27 GMT
njrk97: Ill try and look at it tomorrow, but yeah the gem wand presents some issues, its sorta why i avoided the more modern gem tech on the site IE widespread Destablizers. Like they exist but since Pink is not Dead the Resource issues and tech focus of Era 2
Dec 31, 2019 1:08:37 GMT
njrk97: has not become that prevalent.
Dec 31, 2019 1:08:54 GMT
Chatoyant Aquamarine: I'll try to make some adjustments beforehand. I’ll let the original description stay as it is so you can read it but I’ll send some notes to you so that you don’t have to start from a scratch.
Dec 31, 2019 4:25:34 GMT
Flurry: I knew that was coming

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
