Bluegold and Opalite had decided, after being informed of a rather large city, that they would visit the supposed 'city of wonders' as it was called by the humans. Bluegold had looked around the lit up city and wondered why they called it such a name, no wonders were here as far as she knew. Opalite on the other hand, loved the way the lights shone, she could see, or thought she could see why the city was given such a name. It shone brightly and beautifully Opalite couldn't stop smiling. Bluegold only saw lights and lights only, she didn't care much for the bright colors either, but she came along to make Opalite happy, and she was definitely happy.
The sewer tunnels were dark, moist, and put out an awful stench that Amber could hardly tolerate. She grumbled as she stared at the corrupted gem now bubbled in between her hands. The soft orange glow provided some light for her to see, which helped to guide her to the exit. Poofing the bubble back to her base at the Glass City, Amber climbed the ladder leading up to the surface.
Lousy stinky rat Gems. Of course, they had no control over what they became -those who were corrupted. They couldn't control their form, and they certainly can't control having to only rely on bestial instincts. Still, those scratches and bites hurt, and Amber wasn't in the most peachy-keen shape. The battle with the corrupted gem left her exhausted, having her struggle to lift the manhole lid above her. After seeming like the thousandth attempt, Amber finally opened up a small hole to the outside world.
She climbed out, grunting with the effort, and sat on her knees on the cold hard concrete. The lights of the city blinded her, and she had to blink a few times to get use to the brightness. Once her vision fixed itself, she looked up to find Bluegold and Opalite just a very short distance away. A blush rose to her cheeks, "O-Oh, I'm sorry for disrupting your path! Uh.. here..." She stood up and replaced the manhole cover. "S-Sorry!"
"Nevermind us, what happened to you? And why were you down there?" Bluegold asked and crouched down to come to about eye level with the smaller sized gem. Opalite stood behind Bluegold, staying quiet, her hands held behind her back shyly. "Hey, Opalite..." Bluegold said, a little loudly. Opalite perked up and looked at Bluegold. "Go find a place where this gem can wash this stuff off, I'll stay here and make sure nothing happens." Bluegold said. Opalite heasitated for a second before two wings made of light sprouted from her back, she took to the air and flew off in a random direction. Bluegold meanwhile held a hand out to help the other gem to her feet and gave the best of what she could with a comforting grin. Although looked more menacing with her sharpened canines.
Amber watched Opalite fly away with careful eyes, before turning to Bluegold. "I-It's nothing to worry about, honest! I was just-" Amber stopped herself. She wasn't entirely certain if these Gems were safe to trust. After all, there was a war, and not every Gem could be trusted. She wasn't sure if confessing her duties was the safest option as of the moment. So, instead, she hugged her arm and smiled up at Bluegold in an attempt to show that everything was fine. "I was just exploring. We uh... we get to see the surface of the city, right? B-but what's below it? Who gets to see beneath the ground they walk on? No one! Unless you go down there yourself. So... That I did!" Her smile then became nervous, hoping that Bluegold would believe her, or at least not press on the subject if she didn't.

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.
