Hours passed, the sun went down and the stars appeared. PR was still regenerating, she was making sure to regenerate the best that she could for not being easily poofed again, and of course she also wanted to avoid Azurite's question. When PR was ready to come out, she started to have some problems with Peridot. She started to fight with herself before even reforming. PR wanted to stay close to Azurite, while Peridot wanted to continue her logs through the earth alone. There was no way to know what exactly PR/Peridot was talking about though.
When she started reforming, she was tearing and face down whispering to herself. "I can't tell her, i can't, i can't, i won't let anything bad happen to her" PR was freaking out, she knew that she had to tell Azurite what's going on, but she knew that the consequences would be way worst than happened so far.
Azurite had never really payed attention to how pretty the stars were, along with the sunset when it was out. After waiting for such a long time she finally saw PR reforming, she made sure to smile for her despite all the questions and thoughts. She was about to say something when she noticed she was crying. "PR? What's wrong?" She heard PR whispering to herself so something was definitely wrong, maybe peridot made it hard for her to reform.
"Peridot, if it's about the question... I'm sorry for asking. I really want to know, but you don't have to answer me or tell me whats wrong if you don't want to tell me." She looked a bit sad but reminded herself to keep trying to smile for her. She put her arm around her to try to comfort her while at the same time wondering what what happened. Was she sad that she might be in danger? Was she sad about peridot? What could be troubling her?
"Thank you Azurite, i really don't know what got into me... Your smile is so beatiful, not even the stars above us can't beat it" She was ready for another adventure, but didn't wanted to just leave such a beautiful place like this. After she looked her own body, she was almost satisfied, she just added some star gloves like before. "I was thinking about leave earth, just for a moment and see if we can help other Gems like us" But she knew it probably sounded stupid.
But then, she remembered something. "Wait, Azurite, would you like to know how to shapeshift too? It's fun, almost everything you see you can turn on that" PR ran into the small waterfall and shapeshifted into a Earth marine creature. "See? Now i'm a black and white... Eh... Uh... What's the na- Dolphin, yes, that's what i shapeshifted, wanna try?"
She was happy to say the least that PR had said she had a beautiful smile, she heard her question and saw her new form and was amazed, but seeing the strange new form PR took made her giggle a bit. "Yeah! That seems cool but how do I do it? What do you think when you're trying to shape shift?" She seemed a bit puzzled as she closed her eyes and concentrated on trying to turn into something.
After realising she couldn't do it right now she decided to listen to the advice PR had to give her. Maybe she couldn't do it? Home world had been running low on resources and couldn't afford to make gems like they used to, and Azurite was a rather new gem. The entire gem type themselves were a rather new gem. She decided to tell PR that they might have made Azurite unable to shape shift because of the cut costs from home world.
She shapeshifted back to normal when heard Azurite's questions. "One thing i discovered is that you won't be able to shapeshift only by thinking, i learned that you need to treat your body like a full light being while concentrating to distort your shape into something with every detail you can remember" PR explained what she could for now.
After the explanation, she was about to do the demonstration. She grabbed Azurite's hand so she could explain better. "As our bodies are only made of light, everything else on your body but your Gem are not important while shapeshifting. So when you think about shapeshift, you'll have to start focusing from your Gem" PR was exhausted, she released Azurite's hand and sat down on the grass. But she believed that Azurite could shapeshift, because PR only have eighty years and still came with those powers.
Azurite nodded and thought of everything PR had told her too and took a deep breath. She closed her eyes to be able to concentrate harder. Her body started to turn into a large amount of light for a few seconds, she knew she was shape shifting but didn't think she would get this far so she wasn't sure what to shape shift into exactly when she got an idea.
The light faded away and her new form could be seen in front of PR, in fact it was PR. Azurite had shape shifted into the gem in front of her. A blue version of PR was in front of her, minus the gem that was supposed to be on her chest. "Well what do ya think?" She giggled as she looked at her new temporary form. "I think I look pretty great!" Her giggling turned into light laughter.
"Wow, you did great Azurite! I knew you could do this" PR was impressed that at her first try, she looked so similar to her. Despite PR's Gem, everything was very detailed. "You even managed to copy my Limb Enhancers and my Spikes, you're awesome!" But after a while PR was missing Azurite's look. "Eeeh... Azurite, could you turn back please?" She said without thinking right.
"I-I-I mean, eh, you don't have to... I think i'm being selfish, you can shapeshift now to what you want..." Said with a smile on her face, thinking better now. PR started to walk to the waterfall again, slowly. When she realized what she was about to ask to Azurite, she laid into the water looking to nothing, reflecting about how she got here, with a true friend that she thought it was impossible due her difficulties. Now that she was underwater she seized the opportunity to cry silently about what happened back then on her earth arrival, she didn't want to be the result of a trauma, but happened.
"Oh yeah sure! It's fine." Azurite focused again and shape shifted back into her original form, she thought that is was a lot easier to shape shift back than to do it the other way around. When she finally came back from her light form she didn't see PR. She looked around more but couldn't see her. "PR?" She asked out loud to see if she would answer.
If she didn't answer, Azurite understood that PR probably wasn't in danger. She was probably somewhere fighting with peridot or needed some time to herself. Azurite kinda wanted some time to herself as well, a lot had happened that day and she needed some time to process everything that had happened. While she was thinking about everything she remembered that PR had been keeping a secret from her, she wondered what it could be about but decided it was best to not dwell on the idea.
After some minutes underwater, PR lost control of her mind, but Peridot didn't took over, she stopped thinking, stopped worrying, stopped crying... "These are the direct orders from our Diamond, i don't care if this place is gaseous, we're supposed to make a new kind of Soldier, if you disobey these orders, you will beg to be shattered. Now go!" She was completely blacked out, when she woke up, she didn't remember nothing about her arrival on Earth. "Ugh... Azurite..." PR gasp, then leaves the waterfall. "What happened now!? Wait... Why is this water bittersweet?" She walks to the Jungle and sees that all the path is blocked by plants, trees and vines.
"Well, if she went through this path... I'm screwed" She stayed calm and just waited until Azurite comes back, she knew that she would come back. "While i wait, i think i'll play with my Spikes..." PR sighed, then started to hit one spike on the other slowly.
Before peridot woke up Azurite had become worried about where she was, she began to look for her for a few minutes. She searched everywhere except for the area where the pearl was sitting in her cave. "PR?" She stood at the other side of the waterfall but couldn't see PR because she was sitting at the bottom of the waterfall. "PR where are you?" She looked around for her a bit worried.
When PR finally emerged from the water Azurite was on top of a tree hanging from the tallest and rather thin branch trying to spot PR. She had to admit it wasn't the smartest plan but she was getting even more worried about where PR might be. She looked for around a minute when she finally saw PR with her spikes in her hands, Azurite was wondering what she was doing but decided to call out to her but before she could she heard a snap and the branch she was hanging off of broke in two. She fell around thirty feet, after falling for a few seconds she landed next to PR, palms in front of her. Despite the fact she was a warrior Azurites were generally weak gems, not being able to handle a lot of damage to her gem the impact of the ground on her gem made her poof.
While PR was playing with her Spikes, she heard some noises. When she saw Azurite poof in front of her so quickly, she didn't even know how to panic, she was just shocked. PR quickly took Azurite's Gem and looked for any damage. "Please be okay Azurite..." She didn't find any superficial damage, but she was worried if she needed the help from the Healing Spikes or be bubbled to not make the same mistake that PR did, not regenerating well, but she would feel very wrong doing any of that.
PR thought better and concluded that Azurite would be fine, she knew that, so she sat down, put her Gem on the floor and started to wait for her, smiling and taking care of her Gem to nothing bad happen. "I know everything will be okay... I love you Azurite" She was ready to receive her with open arms when the time come, and return the favor Azurite did for her when PR poofed too.
After about 30 minutes the gem started to rise in the air with a growing ball of light Azurite was finally back. She looked different from before, as do most gems when they reform. Despite the short reforming time she looked normal, to make up for the low pain tolerance Azurites had a short reforming time so they could resume battle faster.
She reformed in the air and landed back on the ground on her knees in front of PR. She quickly got to her feet and frantically looked around. She looked around in confusion as she realised that she was no longer hanging from the branch. Azurite saw PR in front of her and started to remember everything that happened. She remembered everything she heard coming from the outside world while reforming in her gem, the birds, the waves, the wind blowing in the trees and... "PR, did you say you love me?"
PR blushed with the question. "Oh gosh, i meant as a frie- He... He..." She sighed. "How am i supposed to lie now? Yes, i can't help but think that you... That there's no one like you" PR started sweating and bowed her head, making weird noises. "Aaaah... I'm so embarrassed!!!" At this point PR wanted to put her head in a hole until she stop feeling this.
She wanted to hug Azurite, but PR was so annoyed at herself because she said that out loud without thinking. Then she finally stood up and held up her bad feelings just to spill it out. "I have to get this out of my chest, not literally... But, yes, i would gladly stay with you if you feel the same of course... I already care about you so much, so there's no turning back for me. So, please when you can, answer me if you do feel the same or not" PR fell on the ground after the speech. "Woah, i did it..." she whispered to herself.
Azurite wasn't sure of what to say to her. "PR... I'm sorry I can't say that I feel the same way as you do. I like you but as a pal or friend." She blushed from embarrassment. "I'm still hung up about some stuff back on home world." She sat down in front of PR awkwardly, she didn't know how to handle the situation at all.
Azurite took PR's hands, "I don't know what to say, PR. I've just never been in this situation before but promise me this wont mess up our friendship right?" Azurite let go of PR's hands and crossed her own hands over her lap. "But I have an idea. PR I know home world is against it but, let's fuse. I think it's how we can understand each other better. When I used to fuse with other Azurites it's like our emotions were in tact and we understood each other better. If we fuse I think we can get the same idea."
PR started to literally feel dizzy after what Azurite said. "O-Of course, we would still be friends..." But after her request, she felt an headache. "Look Azurite... I have to say something..." She started to sweat and giggle nervously. "I can't fuse with you... Please, i'll tell you what you wanted to know but please don't freak out" PR took a long breath. "Peridot threatened everything and everyone on her path if she sees that i fused with someone. She said that would shatter... I don't want it for you"
She just wanted to fuse now, but if she did, she would be putting Azurite in great danger. If she just wanted to fuse without thinking she could maybe cogitate the possibility of fusing with someone, but this time was impossible for PR to accept an fusion risking lose the best friend she found so far. "I wanted to go to a place where i could be myself without worrying about Peridot, just for once at least, i would know how it feels"
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
