Jet sat at the end of the long dock. So much has changed since she first came to earth, so much has changed since she was trapped during battle. It felt lonely here, she hadn't seen a single gem since she woke from her prison hours ago. She want sure what woke her exactly but she felt like it was time and she just broke free. It was sensational to be in the fresh air and with the very different animals that live on earth. Jet felt like she was born in a brand new world, and that scared her.
The waves crashed against the docks and splashed her feet. jet would jump each time this happened even though it wasnt surprising after the third time it did. jet was always jumpy, that comes with being alone all the time. she stood up as if she were contemplating leaving and finding someone who could help then she sat back down. It was hopeless to think after a thousand years people would be any kinder to her, she was a freak and always will be.
Jet sees a boat in the distance slowly moving into the dock. There was something about this boat. She thought maybe the creature in this boat could help her. She stands back up as the boat glides into the dock and she makes her way to where it is being parked.
A solitary figure appears from out at the land-side of the dock, marching up the wooden planks. The brighter white and black, denoted the figure as a Gem almost immediately and of course the closer and closer it drew, the more it was obvious. It might not of, however, been immediately obvious what sort of Gem this was, though for someone like Jet, she might of been able to tell the signature look of a diamond being that she was from homeworld.
And it was a Diamond. A gray one to be more specific. With a whistle, he continues to walk down the peer. A tall Gem, Earth-looking in appearance (What with the vest, shorts, and pointed shades, as apposed to the super-sleek look most homeworld gems may of sported) and also strangely enough male in appearance.
Diamond was on a mission, this was a port town, if even very small for one. As such he knew that boats often came and went and with them the many humans with tales of the things they'd seen and done. Well that's how it went in some of the larger port cities he'd visited before on his trek over the globe. Diamond was a gem well adjusted to human life so it went without saying that he was a gem who stuck to his own personal tradition of asking the fisher-folk of their tales. A small town this was, but that would not stop him from at least asking one of the boat's owners about their trips, perhaps they might turn up an interesting tale or two. Diamond was always so eager to ask the humans of their travels, there were so many of them and thus so many different things to learn from each human. Ports held a special place in Diamond's heart, given that such salty humans were likely to be among them.
In his focus, he doesn't so much at glance in Jet's direction, but instead takes up a spot directly next to her, tilting his head over as he looks on at the docking boat. "Hmmm, hello fisher guys, any of you visit any place interesting or was this just for fish?" He simply asks one of the fellows standing on the prow of the boat.
Jet looks over to the voice... a diamond? She always admired the diamond authority and their class. all diamonds seemed so powerful. she looks away he obviously didn't notice her. she was curious though why he was here... she uses his shadow and manipulates it to wrap up his arm
'I'm curious... if it's alright.'
she uses her telepathy to speak to him. she looks nervous back on homeworld the diamonds didn't always treat her fairly. but it's not like she could speak up..... not without touching them and that would get here thrown into jail.... or worse.
'why are you here?'
she then retracts his shadow from around arm so he doesn't feel attacked.... she doesn't want to fight not now.
Dusk walked over to the dock. She wasn't able to have heard what the other two gems had said, but she was curious. She kept her distance though, since she wasn't sure yet how they'd act. The one furthest away seemed pretty wary, so Dusk decided she should probably keep her at more than arm's length in case she was shy or not used to other gems. Well, she herself wasn't really used to other gems, anyway...She decided to just sit on one of the little post things on the dock. She finally started questioning the other gem. Perhaps he was bad news. The nervous gem seemed to be scared of him. Dusk finally looked at the boat and gasped. She hadn't seen a boat up close, how cool! And like that, all of her seriousness was gone while she gazed admiringly at the boat.
Diamond stood, listening to the man on the boat. It seemed it was as he feared...
They had caught a bunch of halibut and shrimp. Nothing interesting about a bunch of fish that was for certain ( though he made a mental note to do further research on fish in general)
"Whaaaa, only fish? Was the weather any interesting at lea-" he's interrupted by the feeling of something gripping his arm and his eyes shoot wide open as a foreign voice echos within his mind.
Not used to hearing voices and being surprised (He was a fairly young gem after all) he nearly jumps out of his own skin.Although he does quite literally jump with a yelp, hanging over the water for a couple seconds before plummeting down below with a splash.
Jet stands up quickly... she could tell he was scared but why? if he was really a diamond it should be no problem hearing her..... unless, he wasn't part of the diamond authority. she looks over at dusk and manipulates duck's shadow into a net. she was shaking but she had to help the male diamond. she places her hand on dusk's arm
'I'll be needing your shadow for a bit...... sorry' she uses her telepathy.
Jet then uses the net made out of manipulated shadow to fish grey diamond out of the atlantic. jet looks so relieved and also overwhelmed. she hadn't been so daring... but she felt responsible. she didn't want to cause any gem harm..... she sets diamond down on the dock. she walks over and places her hand on his shoulder..
Dusk gently pushed up the water from under the diamond. She rose the water high enough to push the gem out of the...odd rope. She'd heard of gems making objects, but that made sense since their bodies were just massed holograms, making masked hologram objects. But shadows had no mass, and it just didn't make sense to her. She then carried the gem onto the dock with her water. "Tada!" Dusk smiled. She didn't mean to show off, she just wasn't sure how either of the gems act yet. For all she knew, one was trying to trap the either. ((OOC: Please don't take what I wrote about the shadow ability personally. I honestly am not coming at you. Dusk is just a very curious gem. I'm sorry if you took it as rude, it is a good ability.))

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
