Flurry burst through the Temple doors with a broad grin. With a wide gesture she spread her arms to display the temple interior.
"Behold! The super cool temple of the crystal gems! You can get some human food over there by the fridge, you can sit on those super comfy couches, and if that isn't great enough then you can check out the gem rooms. You will probably need to have one made for you... but they're cool! I don't have one yet.... "
She took a few steps forward and put her hands on her hips. She had arrived with two gems. Bloodstone, a friendly gem she had just happened to meet, and Jazz, a gem who had claimed that she wanted to join the Crystal gems. Flurry had only met Jazz, but was determined to fight her case as hard as she knew how. Flurry easily became attached to people, and gems really.
Bloodstone looked around in surprise, having not been sure what to expect in the first place, but the temple was certainly decent for sure
"Not bad...I can see how this place has been a good base. Looks like it's treated you all well."
She smiled softly before walking around the interior, taking in the various details as well as just taking mental notes. Whether she would need her own room at the moment was unclear..mainly just due to the attachment to her shack and how much stuff was there in the first place
"I feel like asking, um...how exactly can you make one of the rooms? Like, is there a specific procedure you all do or..does it just happen?"
Jazz looked around the temple's interior. It looked rather... human inspired, not that it was an issue; it was simply something very new to her.
"This place looks really... different from other gem buildings. It feels different anyway."
She thought about how her own room might feel in a place like this. Flurry seemed excited to have one, she hoped that Flurry would get own own room too, considering Jazz would be the junior member.
"I am curious how the rooms work too, but I would like to know... where are the other Crystal Gems? I thought there would be a couple here for us to meet. Unless you know where they might be?" Jazz looked at Flurry with curiosity in her eyes.
Light and Para went to the temple. However Light didn't like the idea of coming here... few months ago there was a small accident in Empire City, Light betrayed Crystal Gems on live tv. After few days the great Lady Para came and talked with a small Pearl. His actions were caused by his depression, nearly everyone he knew on Earth betrayed him. He thought that at least in this City, on the Morion's side he will feel respected. But Para changed his mind.
It is just a past now! But most of the gems probably saw that on TV or heard it in radio. Light could count on few Rebels, they were his friends. However even in rebelion some gems were... dangerous. Lady Para also didn't like the idea of being here. She was scared that something will happen to her assistant, not to mention that she also made some enemies in Rebelion. All of this was really unorganised. Light as a Pearl didn't like it. If not Earth's sake and Lady Para he would probably arleady leave the group.
badk to the main topic! Gems went to Light's room. It was a small rancho. There was a small white house with dark green roof. Light used to live there before he made a new room in the Forge. There used to be a lot of animals here. But Light transfered them to Morion's ship. He wasn't going to stay here! And animals wouldn't survive here without the help of gems or humans. Luckly plants could survive here, the room was programmed to water them once a day.
Light opened the door of a small home and let Para come there. It was trully a comfy little home. There were two rooms, one bigger than another. The smaller one was a bedroom and a bigger one was a room to drink tea, listen to radio or watch tv. The walls were full of Light's old drawings. He was a little bit ashamed that Para could see them. He wasn't good at drawing back than (in his opinion)
"It should be here..." Light was checking the chest. He was looking for his old glove, the glove where Fibrolite used to stay. Gems thought that it could inspire them somehow in making golems, the feauture army of the rebelion!
"Hmmmm... are you sure we didn't destroy it in the Forge after we fred Fibrolite? I can't find it here..." Suddenly gems heard some sort of beebing. It was a hologram that Light left at the main room of the temple. It was programmed to come to the owner and make some sort of noise if someone entered the temple. Other gems probably didn't see the small hologram entering Light's room.
"Oh no... I was afraid it will happen eventually. I will better check who it is."Light approached to the door of his room, he was shaking.
He opened a door a little, just to take a look. There were his friends! Bloodstone, Flurry and... and... JASPER?! But that gem was with his friends... and they wouldn't hang out with scary gems. Well he wasn't sure about Flurry. For some reason she really liked the company of Howlite long time ago during their small trip to the kindergarden.
Light closed the door and spoke to Para "There is Flurry, Bloody and Jasper. I don't rememeber any Jasper being in our group though..." He left the room. He wasn't sure if Para will also came out.
Pearl than opened the door and came out. He was quite shy "Ohhh.... Welcome to the temple of the Crystal Gems! It is nice to see you Bloody and Flurry. Do... you need my help or something? And uhmmm who is she?"
Light looked elegant like usually. White snow white toga, white skin, light brown hair, dark brown boots, etc. However there was a small change that other gems probably didn't see before. He had some sort of scars around the place where his gem is, on his chest. It happened during his rescue mission, he was searching for missing Lady Para. Pearl just didn't want them to worry about his problem with his physical form. It hurt sometimes. But it really wasn't a big problem. Light was a prototype, his form was too weak to cure this place. Probably only regenerarion would help. But it was sucking a lot of energy out of him. So he didn't like when his gem was losing the its body.
(Big post for you! I like talking a lot about unimportant things!)

Much like Light Para was nervous about entering the Temple, but it had to be done at some point. If they truly were to assist the Crystal Gems then they couldn't avoid their HQ forever. And of course there was the item they required, supposedly housed within Light's room there. While they searched Para commented, "I like your old room dear, very... Earth."
"I don't believe we destroyed it, the glove must be around somewhere." She glanced to the exit, "Be careful dear, don't want to risk an altercation."
But luckily for them the two gems were friends of theirs, or at least Light. Para wasn't really sure if the others saw her as a friend, after all she never really talked with them aside from their few interactions. For the first time in a while she actually grew a tad nervous, but the information about the Jasper served to distract her from the possibly awkward situation, "A Jasper? I am unfamiliar, hmm... I suppose we best make a good first impression."
Majestic just like Light, Para exited behind him with her hands held together in front of her chest, "Flurry, Bloody, it is a pleasure to see you both again! As Light said, who is this lovely gem with you today?" She did a slight bow, "I am Padparascha, but you may call me Para."
Flurry looked at Bloodstone with a stupefied expression, unable to answer him. She placed a finger on her chin beside her mouth.
"Ummm... I never really learned how it worked. I asked a Bismuth once and she tried to explain it. " Flurry blushed and rubbed her arm. "I kinda got confused and I asked so many questions... she just told me in the end that it was magic. Maybe you'll understand it better? "
As she turned to Jazz her pigtails bounced. She leaned forward and swiveled her arms backward, looking at Jazz with a curious expression as she listened to the question.
"Weeeell I kinda just wait for them to- " It was at that moment that Light and Para entered the room and started to interact with the trio. Flurry's face lit up with joy as she ran toward the two. She leapt into the air and squeezed both of them in a tight embrace. "Guys guys guys! This is Jazz! She wants to be a Crystal Gem! Isn't that great!? "
Jazz nods a bit as Flurry explains the rooms, she might have to try to get a Bismuth to explain it to her personally.
As Flurry and Bloodstone caught up with their friends, Jazz stood still, looking awkward and unsure how to act with these two new gems. Hopefully they do not judge her too harshly.
"Nice to meet you... I am a Jasper, I use the nickname Jazz usually but I have others though they are not used as often. Umm... Like Flurry said, I am looking to join the Crystal Gems... and she brought me here to find members to talk that over with... So, would I be able to join? I can do whatever you guys need me to do, and I can explain myself a bit better if you want." Jazz's nervous demeanor is very apparent, although she seems hopeful.
Light felt uncomfortable with the fact that Para stands begind him. He moved to be on her right side instead of infront of her.
Suddenly Flurry started hugging both of them. Light felt like she was crashing him. Light wasn't strong in general. But the fact that gems and scars are on his chest made it more painful "Uhhh Flurry, I am also happy to see you! But could you be a little bit more delicate? You really become more powerful since I last saw you..."
"Join us...?" Light didn't expect that. It was actually worrying him. One of their Quartz soldiers betrayed them few months ago.
Light smiled back to Bloodstone. She was stronger than Flurry... but she didn't miss them as much as this little Spinel. So hugs weren't that dangerous. "We spend most of the time in Forge. But it still pretty easy to get there. Just use the warp pad that is here in the temple. We should also visit you more often. Para said that since Morion is gone you live in Empire City? I go there very often when I need to buy something."
Light blushed a little "Oh my... what is wrong with me today?" He bowed to Jasper "I am Light Mocha Pearl... people call me Light though." Light was a shy person. Not to mention he was talking with a Quartz right now. Most of the Quartzes he met were kinda... unstable. But only most of them!
Light sounded nervous, just like this Jasper. "It is reallynice to meet you Jazz. But I am afraid That I don't yave a permission to add you to the group... Now that I think about this... I just went to meet other Crystal Gems to become a member. So... I guess that you will be able to call yourself a Crystal Gem when the rest of the team will trust you. I think... I am really not the best guy to talk about the topics like this one!"
Post by Forge Master Para on Jul 4, 2017 11:09:26 GMT
Much like Light, Para was surprised at the sudden hugging from both of the gems. She hadn't expected much, but it warmed her heart that her standing with them both hadn't declined in her seeming absence. She looked to Blood, "Yes I suppose we all get busy don't we. Time just slips on by."
Her attention then settled on Light, where the pride on her face was rather apparent. She was more than happy to see Light take a bit of an attempt at a guiding role. Closer and closer he got out of his shell...
She bowed, "Again, it is a pleasure Jazz. My dear Light here is correct, there isn't exactly a process you have to go through. If you have the courage, and are trusted, then you may consider yourself a Crystal Gem. A protector of Earth just like the rest of us!"
Flurry let go of Light quickly and looked at him raising an eyebrow. She looked at her noodle-like arms and then back up at him. Her expression said 'are you joking or something?' but she decided not to say anything else. She only wondered how she possibly hurt him with a hug. At any rate she made a mental note to be more gentle when hugging light. Some people like Sulfur had a sort of allergy to hugs. It would be best to not hug them too tightly.
"So guys, what do you think of Jazz!? " Flurry asked, smiling and waving her arms toward the jasper. She had been listening to Para, but wanted to make this official. "Is the in or is she in!? "
Bloodstone smiled, staying out of the discussion of whether Jazz deserved to be in the Crystal Gems. She still was an independent through and through, and figured that the ones who cared about the group a bit more should be deciding
"I mean...if you need my thoughts, I feel like Jazz would be a good Crystal Gem. She seems trusting enough and..well the fact that she didn't try to shatter me or anything like that I feel kinda shows that she's safe around most gems."
Octavia smiled at Jazz then at the others
"I know I'm not exactly the one who should be deciding, but Jazz has my approval to become a Crystal Gem if that might...help the process or something like that"
Jazz smiles a little as she listens to Light and Para talk about the Crystal Gems. They sound like a group that she could get behind, just like she had hoped. It was a bit perplexing that she did not have to go through any process or get approval before claiming she is a Crystal Gem. Flurry's words seem to indicate she needs permission but Para and Light seemed to not be able to give her a solid answer. She would have to think on this more.
Bloodstone and Light's comments and reactions about instability seem to be odd though, and a bit concerning. They thought she might be unstable? Well, Bloodstone clearly did not but Light seemed like they might consider her to be such.
"I am different from other Jaspers... I hate violence for violence sake... So if that is what you meant by unstable, I am not like normal Jaspers in that regard."
Pearl tried to ignore Flurry's confused look. It was really embarrasing. But he had to say something. Talking about his scars was a soft topic. What happenee in Kindergarden stayed in Kindergarden, there was no point to talk about this.
Light smiled a little when Para aggred with him and said 'dear Light'. He never had such a good relationship with other gem. She was really caring about him. He kept wondering if he deserve this.
Light grabed the back of his had with his hand. He wasn't sure what should he say to Flurry "Look Flurry... we don''t really know anything about her. Not to mention I am not the perwon to decide this..."
Bloody was Light's friend, she helped him during hard times... there really was no point to not believe her. But did she really know who that Jasper is? What if she was trying to trick all of them right now? Light was probably thinking too much like usually. He noded to Bloodstone "Your opinion really matters here Bloody, thanks for sharing it with us."
The way Jasper was talking... Pearl felt terrible to don't trust her. But he was doing this for the safet of the whole team. "I am sorry for my behaviour. I just try to be careful."
Liht whispered something to Para "Maybe we should ask her some quesrion and take her on a simple mission to be sure that we can trust her?" Light and Para knew nothing about this Quartz soldier. They didn't even know why she wanted to be a Crystal Gem, why she wanted to protect Earth. And why was she different than other Jaspers?
Post by Forge Master Para on Jul 8, 2017 10:05:27 GMT
It was pretty clear that the gems present wanted an immediate confirmation, despite it not being that simple Para couldn't help but try to appease them. She looked to Light, "Yes, normally we would have some test or questions for you to answer, but you have two trustworthy members advocating for you. As such I believe it would be a rather safe move to consider you officially, and entirely, a Crystal Gem. Welcome, I suppose."
She glanced to Light to make sure he didn't object, admiring that he was being very careful about the whole situation with Jazz. As well she valued his opinion greatly, if he felt uncomfortable with such a quick introduction then she would certainly take heed.
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
