Shain walked down the docks and summoned his dagger. Lately hes been doing a lot with H.O.D,but he needs to meet some new Gems. He stabbed it into a wooden pole,and it dissapeared. These docks are the start of many adventures,with sailors coming in and out everyday.
"If only Spinel was here. I haven't seen him in ages."
He took off his coat,laid it down,and jumped into the water. The water engulfed him quickly. The cold,swift movements of the water made Shain feel at peace,after all these battles. He dived down and started walking on the bottom of the ocean. Since it wasn't too deep,there weren't too many sea animals,but enough to still look cool.
Another day searching for the gem who crashed our ship, another day not finding the gem who crashed our ship. Riley was getting bored of this, even though it hadn't been that long. She was doubting she would actually find the gem, the chances were very low. It was a big world, and a big ocean.
A grey liquid would be found on the ocean's bottom. It was hard to tell what it was, other than it was denser than the water itself. It was just kind of lying there, and usual visitors would know that it was something new. It started "crawling" over the ocean's bottom, like it was perhaps alive. It didn't seem to be heading anywhere in particular yet though, just crawling along the bottom like a fish in water. It was indeed strange for a liquid to behave this way.
One thing was for sure, it started heading towards Shain.
Shain stopped staring at the sealife and noticed the gray liquid heading towards him. He swam and met it halfway and poked it. Repeatedly. He summoned his dagger in his other hand,not knowing if its hostile. Or what exactly 'it' is.
"Hello? What are you?"
It came out distorted,but the liquid,if it could speak,could understand it even if they were underwater.
i couldnt think of anything else to say until you transform ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha i love laughing ha ha ha aha haa ha aha ha aha ha ah ahah ah ah aha ha aha ha
Good, he fell for it. Riley smiled to herself, although obviously not visible. As the liquid got poked by Shain, it quickly reacted by crawling up on Shain's arm, sneaking to his back and reforming into a gem being. It was a average tall gem with a monotone gray theme. Riley could now physically smile, giving off a grin. Her arm quickly turned into a cannon aiming right at Shain's head from the left side, giving off a shine. "Why, Hello there." Riley said in a cold voice. Even though it was underwater and a bit distorted, the cold chill of the voice came through. "Now, I'd like to ask some questions if you wouldn't mind." Riley grinned, watching the small gem.
"Now, I'd like to ask some questions if you wouldn't mind."
He looked around,then remembered that the Gem was on his back.
He was about to talk before he noticed the cannon aiming at his head. On the left side of it. He had his dagger in his left hand...His head went wild thinking of all the possibilities. Most of them ended with his head being blown off.
"Eh. F-Fine. Ask what you want. Just put the cannon down!" You can easily tell that the gem is scared.
He kept on thinking about what he could do to this female-looking Gem. Maybe he could stab the cannon,push her off,then throw another dagger? No,she'd react too fast. Play dead and strike when unexpected? She'd never fall for it.....
"Put the cannon down? Now, where would be the fun in that?" she teased, grinning. "First, I'd like you to identify yourself. Second, have you heard of a gem named Thorianite? Gray gem, dark flames?" she asked Shain, awaiting answers. "Or perhaps you know someone who would?" she said, putting her cannon closer to Shain's head as she grinned.
What a great spot to be in, I feel so alive! This squirm better be of use to me, or I'll simply dispose of him. If he's lying, he might as well talk to Thori and she'll know, the last thing we want is her knowing of our presence. Good thing this idiot went into the bottom of the ocean all by himself, nobody will find us down here.
"Time for MY questions. Who are you? Why are you threatening me? How do you know of Thorianite?"
Gosh, this gem was annoying. Asking questions left and right. "That's non of your business, kid." she sighed, kicking Shain out of the way as she faced the shark. Her arm cannon lightening up, as she aimed for the shark's open mouth. "Seems like we're having cooked shark for dinner." she said, firing her cannon. The great ball of compressed matter finding it's way through the shark, an explosion following as the shark blew into cooked meat and body parts. She shook her head as she disintergrated her weapon, grinning to herself watching the view of the blood splattered waters. "How was he gonna plan to eat rock and hard light anyways?" she shrugged.
Shain saw a chance to strike. When the gem put away her cannon,he went behind her,summoned a second dagger,put it in front of her throat,and put the second one over her gem. He couldn't think of what to do because of the liquid-transforming..
"See here missy,it doesn't matter if its my business or not. She's my ally and I want to know."
He emphasized every word to show the other gem he wasn't joking. He needed this answer to report back to Zablan. Or maybe Obsidian,since Zablan is so crazy...
Checkered pattern on your skirt I see you flaunting, see you taunting, it's so sickening I can't resist the way you flirt I should be dead but my heartbeat's quickening I get the feeling less is more It's an excuse just to shake your little derrière That ratio; a perfect score A girl's status is measured by her denier
She grinned. There was no way he could threaten her like that, he knew about her power. Still, he attempted. It was cute.
A buzz could be heard from her gem, it lighting up once a voice could be heard from it. "Hey... I think I found something good... sending you the coordinates of my position..." The voice was clearly from someone male, though it was not speaking very loud and could be heard a bit distorted thanks to the surrounding waters. "What a shame, looks like I'm going to have to deal with you later." she said, gently turning towards Shain, tilting her head down watching him.
"You were dissapointing. Some more training wouldn't hurt, sweetie." Gray Spinel said winking as she would fall like there was no ground, turning into a gray liquid that would very quickly climb it's way up the dock poles up onto the surface, forming into her normal appearance. Checking her gem, a small device that showed a map and two red dots were showing. She gave it a good look before discarding it, quickly heading towards the coordinations she had been given from her partner. This better be good, I am taking a huge risk here letting that kid off the hook. If we don't find her now, we might just have the whole of the area turn against us.
Ruby?: I'm good Melody thanks. Anyone want to start a new thread?

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
