It was getting late this afternoon in the Kindergarden. A small blue gem sat by himself at the lowest part of one of the many ravines. His hand rests on his lap before he draws it up and over his shoulder, hovering over to his exposed gem between his shoulder blades. His hand stays there for a long minute, but yet again nothing happened. Without reacting he lowers his hand back to his lap and sits there breathing deeply. He had been there for hours today, and yesterday. And the day before. And the day before that... he sat there in silence all day for the past week repeating the same ritual over and over until it grew dark.
The gem reached again, hand hovering for an extended amount of time. Just as his hand started his shaking his gem began to glow. Faintly at first but growing in intensity until it was glowing brightly. His head rose and his expression changed from annoyance to excitement as his gem activated. However as he lost focus the glowing quickly faded and his gem returned to normal.
He sat up immediately and yelled, echoing across the ravine walls, "Oh come ON! Why won't you work!" he spun around and swung his arms in exasperated motions before turning again and sitting back down with a audible sigh, "Why is this so hard..."
(Just a note, if someone does not post within 48 hours their turn will be skipped.)
A small portal developed within the Kindergarten and Gate had emerged from it. He strolled around the eerie area and glanced over to the nearby holes. The visit was usual as well as the routine. Corruption always lurking in corners and the Kindergarten being ever so silent; that is until an echo ringed through the terrain.
"Huh? What was that?" Gate glance about and walked onward to the source of the sound. "It came from there- of we go." He scanned the surroundings to find a gem defeated. He settles low within the ravine, it's usual.
Gate traveled down to the lowest parts of the Kindergarten, hopping near the blue gem. "Are you alright?" Gate sincerely inquired with a raised brow.
He started to worry, what if he couldn't summon a weapon? Afterall he's been through it was clear there'd come a time he'd have to defend himself, or someone he cared about. He glanced around the Kindergarden, especially with these corrupted gems going around. And that... thing... there was something other than corrupted gems to worry about. "Maybe I'll never-" suddenly a voice called out to him and he whipped around, standing up in the same motion and fumbling for the metal rapier at his waist, failing to pull it of his belt loop.
He stopped as he saw it was just another gem, a comforting thing. All too often he would find danger around here. Perhaps that was his fault for being in such a corrupted place, he thought. "Sorry, didn't expect someone to sneak up on me like that. Not too many other gems wander around here like I do. Except for... them." He glanced around as if some sort of danger was going to appear atop the cliff side. He returned his attention to the gem across from him and smiled. The gem was an odd looking one, he thought. His clothing seemed mostly black and white, save for the colored heart by what seemed to be his gem. "Yes, I'm fine. Just... practicing."
His mind settled once again on his failures this past week. Why couldn't some gem just show him... how to... He looked back up at the gem, "Hey, um... this may seem random but... can you summon a weapon? Can you show me how you do it?" He settled back down onto the rock and adopted a relaxed posture and guard completely down, as if he was with a long time friend.
Melody: how are you doing? Are you going to make a character in here?

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.

*Garnet,Pearl and Rose broke the space warps to delay Homeworld
*Thanks to Roses Message gems now know what the Kindergarten was used for
