Earth, a planet in the vast solar system inhabited by the beings they call humans, that were simple organics, Blue has endured and learned so much since her nearly year stay on earth, it simply was her paradise and today was no acception to say the least.
Blue would be attired with dark blue shades along with navy blue shorts and a sky blue crop top with the broken gems symbol on it; she also had on no shoes or gloves this time, this was the first time she wore more summer humanistic clothing so it felt rather odd.
Even though she wore human like clothes she couldn't blend in with the humans playing on the beach due to her skin color however maybe it'll be fine. As she contemplated about her life she would have her hands behind her back walking alongside the shores that connected with the tide, water splashed frequently on her feet as she steadily kept her pace, it was a refreshing breeze of fluttering winds that swept into the vicinity of the area which caught her eye for a moment.

Chip was sitting on a glass chair. It used to be just a sand sculpture, but a wee bit of heat turned into glass. It was almost funny. Homeworld was trying to destroy this place, yet Earth was so beautiful. Chip was just sitting there, with his legs in the water. It was soothing. Watching the sun slowly move throughout sky was calming... and it was simply pretty. Yes, he was a curiosity for humans, but they weren't hostile to him.
Few days ago, he made a big fireworks. He flew above the town, blasting fire in the sky in all shapes and sizes. He's done it just because he felt like it, just to show of. Yes, he scared few people, but most liked it. Especially kids from what he heard. It made him somewhat more popular.
Perhaps, if Diamonds came here and saw how incredibly beautiful Earth could be, they wouldn't be so eager to destroy it...
Suddenly another being caught her attention, it was another gem, as usual, they were many who made this planet there own home, she would then head over towards the gem to generally conversate with him. As she got of close proximity towards him Blue waved while giving off a smile, she met this gem before, Fire Opal was his gemstone however many of the gems had there own nicknames to call each other, probably due to how there many types of the same gem.
Blue spoke softly," Hello there Fire Opal, you may not remember me however I was the gem that was with you all when we were helping that ruby.. I'm also with Sulfur and Howlite as a broke gem?" She'd explain attempting to trigger his memory so it wouldn't be as if he was talking to a stranger.

Chip was still sitting, there was no reason to stood up. Even when a broken gem was nearby.
"Greetings there, Blue, I do remember you. I know very well about you being Broken gem... but as long as you don't do something stupid, I have no problem with it. By any chance do you know, if that Ruby found her captain?"
He said. Few dolphins jumped out of the water on the horizon, flew in the air for few moments and them fall under the water again. Chip had to remember, that he must try how it feels to be a dolphin. He didn't tried that yet.
As Chip spoke, she would fold her arms staring at the horizon, it was indeed beautiful, she tilted her head a bit with a sigh," Unfortunately, I don't know if she did, that was honestly that last of me even seeing her actually, I haven't been around this area in a bit" she'd say.
Blue would then continue to stare in her frontal direction," Nothing really I usually just enjoy the out doors, especially this place, so much has happened here, many memories of when I commenced unjustifiable actions, others were special moments" she continued," How about you? Or are you just doing the same, relaxing perhaps?" she'd then say with a slight chuckle.
Blue is and forever will be a broken gem never however she has purpose in life, her past actions brought shame to her group yet still she keeps on with her smile.

"That's too bad. It was sad, seeing her devotion for her captain being rewarded by endless search. I really hope she found her... or at least that she WILL find her... there has to be some happy endings on this planet..."
So far it was one misery after another. Friends were leaving, gem and people were dying... and there was war hanging above their heads as a Sword of Damocles... Ruby's captain was probably long shattered, bubbled or corrupted, but there was always a chance, that this one will have happy ending...
"I don't blame you... this is a very nice place... but I have to say, you Broken gems wear your failures like a badges of honor..."
Blue never met a ruby till she came, she did saw severally in her years of loyalty to homeworld however she never got the real chance to speak heavily towards one, she always thought of them as the Quartzes pupils if you will as they were made for somewhat similar purposes," Yes, as do I, maybe she has already found her captain and they might be trying to find a way off this planet and back to homeworld unless she saw they beauty of this world and hopefully stayed to enjoys it's greatness" Blue said turning her head at Chip.
As he spoken about the broken gems insignia she wouldn't express any emotion by it," Well, we've have caused trouble in the past however I represent my team with honor as I have faith in them, we changed over time and haven't caused much of a problem really, we have been misunderstood, especially myself. Based upon a groups bad reputation historically I was seen as a monster yet then again way back that a could've been accurate however know I'm at a state of peace in the world tending to my non violent experiments.. I only battle for purpose, to protect others from those of eternal hostility like nature".

"Yeah, let's hope for that happy ending. Though I might try to find this ruby and ask her. Or help her if she needs."
He decided. The Pearl really did look kinda lost. And also adorable. It would be good to help her achieve her goals, if possible. Unfortunately, he still had this nagging feeling, that her captain as probably gone... "Well your reputation is what it is because Sulfur and Howlite are monsters, killers and psychopaths. Especially Sulfur, who has fuse shorter then barrel of gunpowder in a cartoon... most consider Broken gems a bunch of wild animals, that should be put down. But I don't judge... what are you experiments by the way? I mean if it isn't a secret..."
Chip was worried about experiments of any kinds. But it was mostly the fault of that insane peridot, that fused his shard with another...
Blue's eye narrowed as he spoken, she always felt differently about her life ever since she has joined the broken gems, it was a good feeling though, a feeling as though she was home. She would then gaze upon the splashing water," Yes however Sulfur and Howlite aren't like that as often as they were in the past especially Howlite, the group doesn't symbolize the individual, many of us are different in the group as I am more peaceful and centered while commonly we could be seen as tyrants..which right know isn't true, we're passed that, well most of us are" Blue said with a bit of firmness.
Blue eye widened once he said that most of the broken gems should be put down," Mhm...." she'd say rather offended by such words, she ignored it as it wasn't the first time the broken gems got mindful negativity and she was sure it wouldn't be the last so replying back was just adding on to it.
Her past experimentation was terminated however she has been doing more non violent experiments currently," Simple serums for enhancements in plant growth, along with animal breeding as well... that is about it for now..." she'd then say calmly.

"Yes, I know. Well at least about Howlite. He is really trying lately... I just hope it's enough. I know how difficult it is to change yourself..."
He said, looking into the sky. He had too much similar with broken gems, he was just lucky enough to find someone, ho helped him through it all. Also he wasn't exactly tortured for centuries like Howlite was. Still... "That's interesting... I wonder why humans aren't doing something similar... then again humans are weird. They have only one planet to live on, yet they are leeching it dry... "
With the deforestation and endangered species all over planet this kind of research could potentially save the ecosystem. Or destroy it, if used unwisely.
"It's nice, that you're doing something cool like that."
Blue remembered how Howlite changed over time since they first met, something was different ever since the crystal gems got involved with him after all, it was actually for the best, they brought out his good side however she loved either side of him psychopath or not he would be forever her love, true love sounded rather corny to feel however that was just about it, true love. Blue's soft voice arise as she felt more at ease," Yeah.. he has been trying, however Sulfur on the other hand, he's just as apathetic as ever.. he doesn't even.. show emotion like he use to, but then again I can't blame him, It was cruel what I did to him .. it's the real reason for why he acts the way he is generally, he was heart broken years ago.. when his love was shattered.. that can cause alot on a gem.. I should now.." she'd then say thinking about deceased crush Onyx.
Blue nodded to him once he thought of her experiments as cool," Why thank you, it's a first step is all, humans often preform mistakes when it comes to vegetation, destroying the very thing that gives them the ability to breathe, it makes no since however this world can be puzzling at times so It's expected...I plan to help pure this planet from any kind of waste along with aid the places of deforestation" Blue said.

"I met Sulfur... unfortunately. In our first meeting he tried to kill me. Without any reason, just because he was nuts. Then he tried to Dreamnapped me, invading my mind... "
Those were really unpleasant memories. Especially the first one. A man died to protect him from Sulfur. It was something that was still haunting him from time to time. He should've shatter Sulfur when he had the chance, now it was too late. Sulfur was out of his reach and quite powerful.
Sulfur surely had his reasons, but Chip didn't care. There were others who experienced tragedy and didn't start killing...
"Humans meant well... but they are... underdeveloped. They can't think forward. They could use some Sapphires in their society... perhaps knowing what tragedy might happen would stop them."
Sulfur wasn't the brightest gem one would meet, even so he was still a broken gem nonetheless so she always thought that no matter what would happen between them, she could bring herself to forgive any of his actions however it was a consistency in which resulted into an immediate problem in a way. Folding her arms she sighed a bit softly," I'm not in good terms with him currently, I think it's mostly for the best actually, however I also think that we need to talk it out but he doesn't have any patience when it comes to hearing me out, weakness is his enemy as he hates it however he has his own weakness which is rather comical" Blue said calmly.
The ability of a sapphire, future vision, was quite a intriguing skill yet humans are dull when it comes to figuring out there extensive lifetime," Unlikely, well it depends as from my observation, humans that are gifted in seeing the future give other humans fortunes all the time however many just try and use such information to figure out how there vision is going to play out in the first place which is rather idiotic really...however humans are still interesting creatures that hold even greater skills."

"Everyone is Sulfur's enemy... not counting Howlite I don't think I ever met anyone who liked Sulfur... he is a danger to everyone... fortunately it seems that he is much more passive lately... I didn't hear about him for ages..."
It could mean anything, but Chip hoped he would never hear about him ever again. It was a surprise, that even his underlings didn't like him. Well perhaps not that surprising, Sulfur had certain anti-charisma.
"I think humans just don't want to know... it's easier to live your life, when you feel like there are infinite possibilities opened to you... if you knew your future it would be incredibly... depressing. Knowing that there is a plan for you, that you can't deviate from... "
Perhaps there was a reason why Sapphires were so weird...
As she thought about what he said about Sulfur, she walked over to the sea, Blue took a good look at herself as she stared into the reflective water. Once she chuckled a bit Blue shook her head from side to side trying to get herself out if this confusion, she spinned to see chip as she needed to do something to get her mind off her stress.
Walking back over to him she would tap her large blue shades smiling at Chip," So what do you guys do for fun usually, I really need to clear my mind on a few things so doing something active would help" Blue asked.
She knew how some humans had fun, some did reckless stunts with different types of vehicles, others went to go swim, reading, the list is endless as it's all about what really entertains someone generally.
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
