She did like this man, she decided. She really did enjoy their fight! It was exhilarating, like nothing she had ever experienced. She wanted to develop a friendship with him not just because she liked social interaction- but so she could do that AGAIN.
She didn't understand his question. She had only ever been on Earth.. there was nothing else!
"What do you mean? The Earth is the only place there is silly! How could I be from someone else?"
"I've seen the temple, but I really didn't care about it too much so I've ignored it.. what's a Crystal Gem? A rebel?"
Scarlet was curious. She had heard mentions of these things, but never got a concrete answer as to what they were.
"The third planet of the Solar System, picked by the Diamonds to be a Gem Colony. There is seven other, and several dwarf planets and moons"
"And the Solar System is just one little dot in the Galaxy the humans call Milky Way... as for the Gems, we are many. Our Homeworld is actually in another Galaxy, far far away. But there are other Gem Colonies, part of the Gem Empire le by the Diamond, perfect Gems, our Matriarchs"
Morion stood up and walked to the little Emerald
"Several years ago a group of Gem banded together and rebelled... it was clumsy and futile, but they did managed to shut down the teleportation and communication network, and for a time cut Earth off from the rest of the Universe in the false hope they could save it from Us"
Scarlet looked up and down at him. Once over. Once more.
"That's uh, cool, I guess."
She didn't really understand the concept of a matriarchy, or a diamond, or anything like that really.
The Earth was her home. And that was where her scope of view lay. Never more, never less.
But now she was curious...
"Why did they rebel?"
They had to have a good reason- overall, the idea doesn't sound too bad, having a set ruler who can tell you what you can do you and what you are for- but some people, Scarlet supposed, might not be ok with that.
What if their purpose WAS to rebel? That was an interesting idea. As Scarlet thought about it, she became more attached to the idea. There is someone out there who can just TELL her what she's good for, what her purpose is- she wouldn't have to find it like she thought.
"Lets walk... as I said, tis is a dangerous place and you are exhausted from the fight. Nice mooves by the way. But you need to practice with that staff of yours!"
Morion picked up his backpack
"Why did the Rebeles rebelled? Now this is an interresting question Scarlet Emerald! The answer is... complicated. Several factors contributed I guess. But mostly they rebelled because a Rose Quarzt conviced them, they have a chance against an intergalactic, technologically hyperadvanced conqueror civilisation. Our Empire. Oh, yeah... we are a conqueror race. If you didn't know..."
Ask freely? She didn't even know what she didn't know. Everything? Was that the answer? She knew nothing. But he was right, her staff work was a tad weaker than it could be.
A conqueror race. She liked the sound of it... but didn't really know what it entailed. Scarlet liked to fight, not kill. Something like that should be a necessity, a last resort. She prayed it wasn't what that was.
What to ask? There was so many things- more about the rebels? Gems? The technology of the modern gem world he spoke so highly of? Or what of the other planets- WORLDS that existed outside of earth? But the, it came to her, like a dog to it's bone. Something that she had taken issue with, the one thing that bothered her most.
"The Great Diamond Authority is the matriarchal body of Gem leaders who rule in absolute power over the Gem Homeworld and its colonies."
"The Great Diamond Authority have complete control and authority over every Gem and the Gem race's endeavors. Each Diamond is responsible for overseeing a specific part of Homeworld society. Some Gems belong to Yellow Diamond, others to Blue, etc. Gems wear a colored Diamond emblem on their outfit that corresponds to the Diamond they serve. See? This one... I am from Her Court"
Showed the girl his blue insignia
"Most Gems are very loyal and legitimately believe that the Diamonds are the most elite beings to ever exist. Actually Gems must show absolute respect and loyalty to any Diamond they interact with, whether they serve them or not. Appropriate behaviors include calling the Diamond a Gem serves "my Diamond", saluting a Diamond, and optionally, giving the Diamond many gracious titles before speaking with them. "
The Smoky Quartz smiled
"There are four of them. Blue Diamond, Yellow Diamond, Pink Diamond, who is above us right now and White Diamond."
"So whats make them so special...? They are perfect. In any sense. Giants towering above us... everybody is capable of shape shifting, but they are giants by their own right. Indestructible, unique, wise and powerfull... tho' I must admit, never was a big fan of Yellow Diamond. For reasons...."
Morion shook his head
"In a sense, they are true Goddesses... not some forgotten dusty old dieties, like the Moon Goddess... they are among us, leading us. They are the Alpha and the Omega. Their word is the Law. A Pearl "slave" or a Ruby soldier would gladly shatter for them, or shatter anyone or anything, without question. This makes them so special, their power and the loyalty they "radiate". In the presence of a Diamond, you can't do anything but kneel and whisper "as you whis my Diamond"
Blue Quartz: That was the worst hi ever XD Why ..?

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.
