Blue Moonstone walked around the dark, abandoned place with his assistant and his quartz soldiers. His feet were cold, he knew there were something wrong with this place. He felt safer around the guards, but still, he felt like this kindergarten is not normal. He thought to himself why it stopped working, why it was left like this. He didn't want to be there. He was scared. But it's a mission, what could've he done? He ordered his peridot assistant to investigate the walls and the holes. He did the same thing. But he wasn't focused, he only thought. About what happened here. It didn't leave his mind. It just got stronger and stronger. He needed a quוet place. But... He couldn't. He couldn't get away. The guards blocked him. He stayed up and worked... A lot. He investigated the area. But he found nothing. He couldn't've known why this kindergarten stopped working. He was really nervous... He didn't want to disappoint the diamonds... He couldn't disappoint them! They will poof him, or even shatter him! He was terrified...
While the guards didn't pay attention, he ran away. He needed some... Alone time. He couldn't work all the time. And he was scared... He was not a machine anymore. He finally felt something. And he hated it. So much. He... Despised it. He just sat alone, in the dark... Waiting. But he didn't know for what.
Same Kindergarten, same update as always. Peridot seemed to expect something more from a "dead" place, not a new Gem of course, but waiting for some event, some Corrupted Gem... Or even someone. She didn't wanted to record what she would make there, but she don't need fancy tools to remember of something, at least not when it comes to something she already have checked in a lot of times, or rather saying, someplace she have already checked. Peridot was feeling safe there because of the amount of metal Injectors she could use to defend herself, maybe if these Injector's drills weren't from the Era 1, she could not use the remaining metal junk.
After looking around, she noticed another Peridot and some Quartz Gems. She hid her Limb Enhancers and her Shoulder Spikes, then went towards the Gems "unarmed". "Heya, i've noticed that you guys are in my way, so... Beat it, i gotta work here, you can play around later okay?" She didn't knew if they were alone or if there was some kind of leader there, but she didn't care at all about it.

Blue Moonstone heard a voice from peridot and his guards, but it was a new voice. He was surprised, was there a new gem here? He carefully watched the quartzes, and surprisingly saw a new gem! It was a... Peridot? He thought the place was abandoned! The moonstone walked silently towards the new peridot, and as soon as the guards saw him, he ordered them to attack, without any words. They prepared for a fight, summoning their weapons and walking to the peridot. The assistant peridot still worked and didn't mind the new gem that just arrived. Bloom walked slowly to the target. He wasn't going to fight. Actually, he didn't even know how to. He just tried to look intimidating.
He was going to block the gem from getting away, but suddenly he started to think about all the things that could happen. What if they attack him? Poof him? Or even worse, shatter him?! He couldn't. He walked away. The moonstone hid behind a big rock, and watched. He wandered, who is that gem? He waited there, and wanted to see what would happen.
Therefore they seemed to have a leader. Peridot without hesitating pulled an Injector from the wall with her metal powers and pointed towards them, Peridot sat down and just waited for them to come. "What's the hold up?" If someone would try to attack her would be poofed or even shattered depending of where they were going to attack, the Drill was capable of this, not instantly, but with time and strength Peridot could get rid of them, "but where's the fun in just ending them?" she thought with an blank stare. She was laughing inside by the hidden Gem behavior, thinking that if they can't come even near the fight, but still make the orders, was a joke for her.
Eventually, she lied down and started to wait for the hidden Gem to come tell her why they is still here, from afar she couldn't tell but it looked like it was a Lapis, but she didn't know much about every kind of Gem. "So... Are you gonna tell me why are you here or do i need to get serious?" She said out loud for the entire Prime Kindergarten, waiting for an a approach.

The quartzes put their weapons away. Bloom started to shake. He was very scared. Unfortunately, he was spotted by the peridot. He decided that he needed to stay strong. He started to walk to the gem, but he still wasn't sure if it was a good idea. He got closer and closer to the new peridot. He said "I... I..." quietly. He was afraid. He coughed and said "W-Who wants to know...?". He didn't want to look like a scaredy cat. He was very nervous. He didn't know this peridot, he couldn't know how powerful it is. He tried to hide it, he wanted to look like a leader of some sorts. But still... He couldn't overcome his fears.
He called his assistant, that instantly came and stood next to him. He felt safer now. He waited for the gem's answer patiently, but he still wasn't confident in himself. the gem could be dangerous. The quartzes started to surround the peridot. Maybe it is better like this. He felt better, and even safer.
As they surrounded Peridot, she instantly regret leaving her tech hidden, could be of good use if they all attacked at once. When they arrived, she saw and heard that was an male-kind Gem, quite rare for her. But when she heard his question, she glanced at him. Peridot's appearance must have confounded him. "Can't you tell? I'm a Peridot, you have one right next to you... Homeworld?" She deduced that if he owns a Gem, probably was from Homeworld, not that it mattered for her. Just to be sure that she wouldn't be taken down, she used her metal powers to spin quickly the Injector so if some Gem attacked, they would be the ones taken down.
Peridot was losing her patience. "I don't care about who you are and if you are from Homeworld, just let me finish my research here" She said calmly while looking around the place, still standing in the middle of them.

Blue Moonstone didn't want his guards to get hurt, so he ordered them to take a step back, and so they did. He said "Y-Yes, homeworld. So stay away...! W-We're here to investigate this kindergarten, so don't bother us...!" loudly. His fears started to go away, but he was still a little worried. His assistant took a step forward and said "You heard him, go away! We don't need a little dummy like you stuck in our way! We need to work here!". Bloom was shocked. He admired her confidence. He looked at her and smiled. She defended him. She... Reminded him of Olive. He was grateful.
He said "Yes! Now go away or else...!". Or else...?! What was he thinking?! Or else what?! He froze in his place. Maybe he was... Too confident. He did a stupid mistake. He got so angry at himself. He thought he should be shattered for even interacting with this peridot. He didn't think before he did it... What would he say next?!
Peridot didn't even looked at the other Peridot, trying to not get mad, she dropped the Injector on the floor slowly and passed by the guards without emitting any threat to them, grabbing her Limb Enhancers and her Shoulder Spikes from the ground. Then her spikes suddenly were at full speed towards the blue Gem, but when Peridot gave a better look at all of them, she stopped threatening him. "Not worth my time" She just passed by them searching for anything odd or any clue of Corruption on the Kindergarten. But when she looked back to check if they were trying anything stupid, she glanced at the other Peridot's eyes for a moment and was filled with hate.
"This Peridot you own... Reminds me of someone i hate... But it's nothing personal, i don't know you guys yet" She said quietly while using her spikes to search underground and her hands to search around the area.

Bloom breathed heavily. He said angrily "Who are you anyways? And what are you doing here? This place is supposed to be abandoned!" and walks towards her. He was very angry. His steps were loud, you could tell he was angry. He walked right in front of the peridot and shouted "Answer me!". He looked right into her eyes. He won't take a "No" as an answer. He was determined. He wouln't let go. When is angry, he is a different person. He didn't think about his fears. He was just angry.
Actually... Not just angry. He was crazy mad. Nothing could stop him. Besides the diamonds... But still! Nothing! No one'll want to mess with him when he's mad!
What he asked was unreasonable, she already said that she was a Peridot, and he could see exactly what she was doing, abandoned or not. "Excuse me... Are you deaf blind? If you get mad at me would be illogical, you and your crew would just get shattered, that is not a threat, it's a fact... So please calm down, would ya? I need to-" She felt something beneath the earth with her Spikes, something small. Peridot grabbed from the floor, it was an Tungsten, could come in handy if she needed to fight against someone that hate light, besides that nothing more else that came in mind when she found. She covered a hole near this place and made a X symbol to remember that there could be more valuable stuff for her.
When she stood up she started to walk through the walls till get to another hole, where she started to search for something again. "Oh Shoot!" Something she found there was decomposing. "Argh... Organic..." She was very unpleasant with it but kept searching further.

The peridot was right. Bloom knew that. But... He has to be right. He couldn't confess it. He couldn't be wrong. He said "Y-You are illogical! Y-You need to obey us! We... We are from homeworld! And you are a... Nobody!" and looked at her. He knew he wasn't right. He just stopped talking. He didn't want to make anything even worse. He acted stupidly. And... He knew that. But still... For some reason, he couldn't be wrong.
What else could've he done? He needed to be the one that was right! He couldn't give up! Still, he is a homeworld gem! Right...? Yes! Right! and he needed to be at the top! always! No matter how hard it'll be! Because he is from homeworld! And he wants that! Or... does he?
She couldn't do it by herself, not if he was just complaining. But hearing how mad he was and what he said was actually funny. Peridot came down from the hole and landed on the floor, smiling. "Okay, that was funny... You're right that i'm a nobody, but that doesn't make you better..." Then she realized one thing. "Oh shoot, now i'm sounding like her, am i... getting soft?" She whispered to herself. As Peridot always do, she was noticing an pattern: Stammering, Ignorance and Denial. Gathering all of it together she could tell that he had some issues to deal with.
With all settled in her mind now, she could talk to him calmly. "Look, things will not always work out the way you want it to, so how about this... I can help you guys here then, my tech can track things way deeper than you think" It's quite rare that Peridot likes someone enough to try to help them, she likes to help, but not always she's willing to do it.
Post by Blue Moonstone on Jul 17, 2018 13:09:06 GMT
Bloom was surprised. She wanted to... Help him? But it can't be! How...? He was pretty rude... He wouldn't react like she did! He said "O-Oh! Ok... This wasn't the reaction I expected... But fine. I guess we're Ok now.", and then it hit him. What if she is just playing it nice? What if she is planning something? He doesn't even know her yet! He can't trust her! She is just a random gem that appeared from nowhere! She is just playing a sick game with him!
He couldn't trust her. No way he could! She tried to shatter him just a moment ago! He said to her "Thanks, but no thanks. We don't need your tech. We're from homeworld, remember? We have the best tech possible!". It was nice for him to be confident for a change. It felt nice. He liked it.
Suddenly Peridot remembered one of the many reasons why she's so skeptical, she opened herself up and that happened. When she felt an strongly sad feeling, she lowered her head and covered her eyes with the Spikes to prevent anyone from notice that's she's crying. "Well then..." Peridot walked away slowly, heading for an small hole. "Let me try-" She punched herself. "Stay out of this you brat!" She left the hole to check if someone heard this. "I-I'm talking to myself, you guys can keep searching, i'll-" She fell in the same small hole. "C'mon, i know how this feels, i can make-" She punched her own Gem this time. "Seriously, shut up..." She whispered.
Then Peridot used her spikes to dig faster and find anything, anything but another freaking Tungsten.

Blue Moonstone was very confused. She talked to herself...? But why? She's weird... He stepped towards her and said "Why are you talking to yourself? You must be... Defective.". She was different, surely! But... Still, Bloom couldn't stop thinking about why is she here, because no one is supposed to be there. He was told that earth was abandoned! The diamonds... Lied to him...? No! It must be a misunderstanding! Maybe... Maybe they didn't know! But... They are the diamonds! They're supposed to know everything!
Or do they...? Bloom started to question everything he known so far. Were gems even meant to obey the diamonds? Maybe they need to be free! No. He is just imagining. The diamonds are great. He shouldn't doubt them. Ever.
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

*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
