"You... You ignored me? You kmow what, never mind. Just stay away from us. Leave us alone."
He was angry. Why did she ignore him? He felt embarrassed, and he didn't like it. Bloom walked to the quartzes and his peridot. He was tired of the obnoxious gem that was lying on the ground. He just wanted her to be gone. He was tempted to just tell the guards to poof or shatter the stupid peridot, but no. She was nice to him somehow, and he couldn't forget it.
"Just go away before you'll be poofed or worse. You surely don't want this to happen, are you? No. You don't. So... Bye! See you sometime and somewhere else, if anytime or anywhere."
He wasn't really going to poof her. He was grateful to her. He would not hurt her. He was angry, but he was happy that he experienced her kindness, Even if she's really dumb and airheaded.
She thought he was stressed about something and wanted to help, but maybe she couldn't. "S-Sorry... I already apologized, what can i do to make you calm down? Just... Going away? I wanted to be friends..." She started to feel bad and confused. No matter how hard she tried, it just seemed to make the situation worse. After thinking for a while, she figured out that maybe he was hiding something. PR sometimes hided somethings too, but never lied, so if she managed to calm him down a little, maybe soften his problem.
"Is there a way i can help you without going away? I want to help too" PR got near the Quartz Guards. "I can try to bond everyone here, so you guys can talk with each other more often" She was taking a great risk, but in her mind, it was worth it.

Bloom sighed. He couldn't handle this anymore. He said "We don't need any bondings. We are co-workers. And what is a friend, anyway? You're using stupid words. So... Just stop. You are annoying us, please step away."
The quartzes summoned their weapons, and stepped closer to the weird peridot.
"I just don't understand... Why are you acting like that? Why did you change your attitude so suddenly? It just... Doesn't add up."
Why? He just wanted to know! Why wouldn't he? It's interesting! So weird... What is this planet even? Are there more gems like her that ran away from the diamonds to here? Since he met her, he couldn't stop questioning everything. From her, to the diamonds, to his whole existence! She... What has she done?
When PR saw they summoning their weapons, she got scared, but tried to stay calm. "C-C'mon guys... You don't have t-to do this..." She was shaking with fear, until her alterego began to interfere. "G-Guys, please stay back, i'm not feeling go-" She stayed in silence for a second. "... Heya 'boss', so... How about a little game... If you don't shut up and just answer what i ask..." She pulled her Spikes up, pointing at him. "You won't even be able to regret..." Peridot used all the Injectors as weapons, floating around her. "So i recommend you to choose wisely what you're gonna say..."
Peridot then jumped towards his back with her Limb Enhancers, pointing her Spikes directly to his left arm, right into his Gem. "First question... Why are you STILL a slave? I tried to help you and you stabbed in my back. But i'll give you another chance... Answer me"

The moonstone was shocked. She suddenly got so brave... What's up with her? He started to shake and he pulled his arm towards him, hiding it from her spikes. And for her question... He... Didn't really think of that... In fact... He never thought of that. He doesn't do what he wants do, and isn't who he wants to be. He's just listening to orders, orders, and more orders. But... He never listened to himself.
He said quietly "I... I... I don't know...". Out of nowhere, one of the guards got angry and ran towards them. Bloom's gem lit up and surrounded the area in blue light. Moonstone put his hand in front of the light, and formed a long and sharp spike out of it. He stabbed the guard that got very close to them. He poofed him. Bloom looked at the quartz gem falling on the ground. Everyone there looked shocked at it, including Bloom.
"Wha- What have I done?! The diamonds are going to shatter me for this!"
His eyes were full of tears. He did something terrible. He... He poofed a gem! A homeworld gem!!! He... He did something that could not be forgiven. All his body was shaking. He did a mistake... An enormous mistake.
Almost there, but not quite. Peridot instantly put her Spike near one of his Guards, focused to make only the deadly substances to remain and opened the substance capsule of her Spikes, delivering the deadly substance on the Guard. "Speak... Otherwise this Gem i delivered the goop won't last 5 Minutes, she will eventually poof, then ending up melting. None will be able to help after that" Usually PR would take over when Peridot realized his tears, but this time Peridot was beyond mad, she felt betrayed, helping him just to unleash PR. But she know exactly how to punish these kind of beings... Hurt and ruin everyone, everything, every dignity he has.
"Don't expect me to even warn you when you don't answer correctly... THIS IS PAYBACK!"
Post by Blue Moonstone on Jul 25, 2018 14:47:16 GMT
The crying gem looked at her, open-mouthed. He shouted "I- I'll answer anything! Just... Just stop!!! Please... I beg you... Don't... Don't hurt us even more...! It's... It's enough..."
The final guard defended the terrified assistant peridot. They were speechless. The moonstone fell on his knees. He couldn't handle it anymore. He quietly moved towards the poofed gem. He didn't know what to do. He Was really scared... He created a little stream of wind, that brought the gem to him. He took it and held it close to him. He looked at the peridot... This peridot... She is horrible... She destroyed all of what he believed in... He got angrier and angrier... He was really mad. He wanted... To just destroy her.
Wind bending, not to shabby, but this guy clearly was too scared to use it or just didn't know how to use it. Still, that was not even close to the answer she wanted to hear from him, it was two options. He just needed to figure out by himself, but Peridot wouldn't give one of the answers that easily, and while she was full of hate, things could only get worse. She poked his Gem with one of her Spikes trying to warn him that the Game's still on. "Speak..."
"The next one will be that pitiful Peridot of yours... But don't think i'll just shatter her... As long i can research another Peridot's Gem without losing my form... It will be WAY EASIER to end up my researches. So go ahead and tell me, why are you still a Slave from the Diamonds? If you're sadomasochistic, i'm here to end you now!
Post by Blue Moonstone on Jul 25, 2018 18:25:54 GMT
He said quietly "I... I don't know... Really! I- I never thought about that... They created me... And- And I thought I was doing it from my own will... But maybe... Maybe you are right... Maybe I am a slave... I... I don't know..."
Maybe... But just maybe. She... She is right...? He didn't know. Really, he didn't know anything right now. It all was very confusing. He was a slave? He didn't think so... At least until now. He felt like everything... Everything is going to change from now on. And it's going to be hard. He... He saw the world in a whole other way now. And not in a good way. In a terrible, terrible way. He... He is not who he thought he were anymore.
First step done, now he needed to understand why he was being punished. "You're doing great, but it's not over yet... I'll give you a reward. Don't make me regret this" Peridot used her Spike to retrieve all the bad substances she delivered on one the his Guards, then she delivered all the substances, including the healing ones. "There, she won't melt like acid anymore, now she's gonna be fine. Don't worry about the Gem you poofed, she will be fine too... If you tell me the right answer after my explanation.
She was ready to teach him what she took so long to understand. "Okay... Let's suppose that the Homeworld Gems are BLACK and the Rebels claimed themselves Crystal Gems are WHITE. The BLACK side wants 100% of order, but none of them but the Diamonds are free, freedom doesn't exist. The WHITE side wants 100% of freedom, but sometimes it comes out of control while trying to protect this planet, so there are much disorder." She was already getting sick of this, so she tried to talk to him like he was made today. "Knowing that the world isn't black on white... Which side is the right side? What do you want for your future?"
Post by Blue Moonstone on Jul 25, 2018 19:23:22 GMT
"Rebels? Crystal Gems? What... What do you mean...?". He looked confused at her and thought about what she said. What does she mean? Are there... Rebels? Weird... Anyways, He needed to answer her.
He coughed and said "Never mind...". There was an awkward silence for a moment, and then he continued: "I- I guess neither... Not having freedom at all is just not fair, but like you said... 100% freedom could get out of control, and make everything messy... Because the world needs some kind of order and rules, doesn't it?"
He thought about it for a second... She was right. Not being free is just not fair. He... He thinks he understands her now. But... When he thinks about it... Does this mean his whole existence is wrong?
Peridot immediately retrieved her Spikes, then started to walk away slowly. "You guys will be able to live another day, don't waste it... Like i'm doing since i emerged... Don't repeat this mistake, otherwise your wisdom will become your burden" She dropped the Injectors slowly on the floor while walking. She looked back at the blue Gem. "I don't even know why, but i feel that something inside me searches something, but i don't know where it is... By the way, you didn't tell me what kind of Gem are you... But it doesn't matter now" Peridot saw an full grown tree that PR had planted, climbed the tree to have a better vision, and found train tracks.
She jumped off the tree, then walked away, towards there. Peridot could find the sea much more easily with that kind of speed.

He shouted towards her "Wait! Hold on for a second! Don't go! What am I supposed to do?! I'm... I'm not sure what to do now! Please, help me! I am going to be shattered! You have to help me somehow! I... I don't even know what I want anymore! You... You destroyed everything I believed in! So please, just help me and then you can leave and we'll never see each other again! Please!!!"
He needed help more than ever. He didn't want to go back. Now that he knows the truth. He didn't want to be a slave. He wanted to just be free. But what was he going to do? He had no choice but to ask for help. This peridot knew the place, right? She must know where he can go! She must...
"You know the place, right? Where can I go?! I- I need your help! I don't want to go back to homeworld now! Everything is changed! I... I don't know what to do... Please..."
Peridot sighed, then jumped back near to the blue Gem. "I just opened your eyes... If you think there's a GREY place here on earth, then find yourself. Because at least until now, everyplace is BLACK or WHITE, i still didn't found a place where the Gems are willing to don't be on neither of these sides, and i didn't even search to be honest, i'm busy with other stuff. They always ran away looking for a place, just like you're doing now. 'What am i gonna do if i don't belong to somewhere?' bla bla bla... You need to be your own Gem, no excuses.
She noticed that both of his Guards Gemstones on the floor were starting to glow. Peridot saw a opportunity. When they reformed, she started to talk. "By the way... I'm pretty sure you're not the only one on your crew that wants to be free... It's not fair that you can be free while they're still under your control like puppets. I'm surprised that when they finally say something, they don't choke on their own words" She stopped for a moment, and wanted to help him more, but... She didn't have time for this, she had to research more about her own defect, she needed a cure.

Bloom looked at his guards. She was right. They deserve to be free. But... What can he do now? He won't have protection... The guard that he poofed looked in despise at him. He looked at the peridot and said "But... But no one will defend me! I... I will be helpless! I can't just go alone!"
His assistant took a step forward and said "I'm going back to homeworld. I don't believe any of the stupid stuff you just said! You are just a dumb lier. Let's go, moonstone."
He looked at his assistant and said "But- But the stuff she said made so much sense! She is not lying! I wanted to think that, but I just can't. I know that she's saying the truth."
She said in an angry tone "Fine! I'm going back to homeworld! Who's with me?". The two quartzes that were poofed followed her. She shouted "I'm going to tell Blue Diamond everything that happened here!" and she walked away withy the two quartzes.
Bloom looked at the guard that was left there. He looked very confused, he probably didn't know what was going on. The moonstone kind of felt like this too. Like he's in a blackhole. Like he's in the middle of nowhere. Well, that sort of where he is right now.

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
