Fuscite trailed off as he stepped through the dimensional rift portal...thing. There was a giant hand. A giant, floating hand. He looked at the rugged gem and tilted his head. "Well, Carbide...I guess...you were...right." He pointed to the giant floating hand. "Never...seen that." The old gem chuckled. "Alright...second lesson." He spun on his heels as the other gems summoned their weapons. "Know when...how...and where...to strike...using...the environment." Fuscite stated as he gestured to the void. He immediately took off, dashing off to the side of the group. The armor began shifting from green to whatever color the blankness of this void was, quickly fading from view. A Holo-Fuscite appeared and the on outside the portal dissipated, the junk it was holding hitting the ground with a THUNK. The Holo-Fuscite stood with the rest of he gems, acting as a stand-in for the real deal for direct combat.

The hand dangled in the air, slowly twitching its fingers while waiting for something to happen.... it wasn't going to wait too long though. "Don't suppose to wants to play rock paper scissors does it?" without turning his head away from the sight before him he gave a quick response to the gray gem, "Why would this creature want to play with a rock, a form of mashed up tree paste, and whatever.... a "scissors" is?" He asked not quiet sure of what the other gem meant by naming some random Earth objects.
"Don't you guys freeze up on me now in here!" Mr. O's head turned slightly to the side to get a glance of Carbide, she was calling on her cannons as in more then one! He was more then aware of what her weapon was as he had seen her use it a handful of times before, though he wasn't aware she could summon TWO of the large weapons. "Im not frozen darling! Just..... admiring this things lovely gem!" he made a fancy gesture with his hand pointing towards the gem in the palm of the giant hand. Though when Carbide spoke of aiming for the gem he twitched slightly before spinning on his heel to look at Carbide, "What?! Dont anyone DARE shatter that gem!" His voice distorted slightly as he quickly spoke out his protest of her wanting to aim at the gem.
"I NEED that gem! If I can get ahold of that little bobble.... my power over reality will only grow stronger! Oh-hohohohoho! I could become even BETTER!" He seemed to enjoy the idea very greatly of him getting his slender hands around that gem.... how they go about that might be a bit hard. Seeing the Fucite starting to change position while leaving a clone in his place.... quiet smart and could come in handy. Giving a large smile as he seemed to have perked up a bit... his goal was in sight now! How wonderful!
He quickly tapping his cane off the ground causing it to fall onto the ground in a bunch of links, "My dear Carbide.... you aren't the ONLY gem here who has some ranged abilities!" He spoke with a wink as he bent both legs low before shooting himself straight up rather high into the air, "Leave the gem for me!" He calls out as he began to whorl his whip around him rapidly, in doing so waves upon waves of energy began crashing into and around the large hand. Right away the hand slammed into the ground from the waves of energy slicing into it, a strange sound came from the hand, it creaked and moaned. Once Mr. O had dropped onto the ground the hand looked weak... for a moment before it pushed itself up into the air and formed a fist with itself.
Aiming right for Mr. O it forced itself down aiming to crush O under its fist, spinning to the side Mr. O just avoids the brunt of the fist that slammed into the ground, as it did, smaller fragments started to break off from the hand, forming little show hands that danced along the ground. The larger hand itself seemed to lose some mass for each smaller hand that left it... maybe this was a way to wear it out before attacking the gem itself?

Carbide strides forward punting the little 'Handlings' with her boots, watching them sail off into the blackness and poof into nothingness, another catches her gaze as it springs towards her from the side. She twists and bring her cannon barrels together, smashing the small creature between the two weapon bodies, as a human might squash a mosquito, flying at its face. "Ygggg!! Creepy little things! No Touchy!"
She hefts he left-side cannon and switches over to a hard light grapeshot shell, the rift zone is filled with a flash and a clap like ground-level thunder as a hateful streak of glowing light shrapnel erupts from the muzzle, and peppers the giant hand creature with a series of deep creases and gouges that seem to bleed blackish smoke.. even managing to punch a hole right though the tip of the monster's 'pinky' making it roar in painful protest! "Oh my! Cant be too sure that it appreciated that one, I hope it doesn't stay cross at me for too long!"
She crouches to ready her other cannon, no more tickles and love taps, time for some piercing explosive ordinance! She aims down the length of her weapon, tucked under her right arm, readying her shot, however Opalite seemed to be doing an awful lot of ducking and weaving in front of her, and if she blew him or his hat in half, she knew she would never hear the end of it. Besides that, she didn't know where Fuscite had gotten off to, and if her shell over penetrated, she might end up hurting her so called great great predecessor!
"Gads Opalite, Pick a lane! You're all over the road!" Her weapon bobs and weaves, as she tries to find an opening that will allow her a safe shot. "How do we know that letting you keep that thing's gem core is a good thing Opalite?! That thing seems massively unstable, and you seem so darn sure that you need that thing! Have you considered that maybe its playing you, unable to leave the rift on its own, and is relying on you being a nice little courier to bring it into physical space time?!! You don't need any more power than you already have, that thing isn't going to make you any 'Better' ! "

Fuscite sat with his legs crossed some distance away, perfectly blending into the environment and watching the fight from a safe distance. He was waiting for the opportune moment to shank the hand, and he somewhat enjoyed playing with the Holo-Fuscite as it bounded around the hand, going on a balls to the wall offensive strategy. Fuscite paused for a moment to look at Carbide as she whipped out a second cannon, before returning to the hologram currently in combat. And now there were multiple smaller hands scurrying about. Great. One had found its' way over to him, looking like it had come from a bad horror flick. Getting up, Fuscite went and punted the thing back towards Carbide and Opalite before sitting back down again.

O had been staying on the move, almost dancing about the area seemingly like he was just drawing the hand about so the others could do the real damage. Carbide had dealt a good blow to the hand, the hand reeled in pain and started to rumble and raise up high. The hand started to splinter off portions of itself, shrinking smaller while raining down rather large hands compared to the smaller ones from before HAND (Get it?!) a total of four hands now moving in around O.
"...-You don't need any more power than you already have, that thing isn't going to make you any 'Better' !" "Ya know darling...... NOW MIGHT NOT BE THE TIME!" He calls out before starting to lash out with his whip towards the closest hand, slicing out chunks of the fingers with each motion, moving away from the other hands that split up. One following after Mr. O, while the other two started moving in on Carbide as she was in range. "Oh-hohohoho! With this gem, I could even stand up to the Diamonds! OR MAYBE HIGHER THEN A DIAMOND!? Of course its going to make me better! If you think im going to let some tiny parasite take control of me.... you don't know me too well, darling!" Hollered Opalite as he began to viciously whip apart the first hand, wrapping the whip around the middle finger.
Pulling it up and ripping the finger back pulling the hand apart, "HANDS down.... an easy little scuffle! Oh-hohohoho!" He laughed as the second hand started to draw in, the main hand had landed and crawled off to the side trying to hide from sight. Opalite spins around in time to see the hand trying to creep up on him and enters.... his normal standing stance... awaiting for the hand to make a move, it seems the hand might be feeling.... fear? Is it?
Post by ~Panzerschurke~ on Mar 12, 2016 2:14:11 GMT
This was no good! The more that Opalite delivered his 'death by 1000 cuts' strategy on the main creature body, the more their merry little party was at risk of a fate akin to 'shattered by 1000 small annoying gropes,punches and nurples....' she didnt quite know what a nurple was.. but she chuckled at the sound of the human word for a moment.. where DID she pick up these little cultural tidbits anyway?!
Carbide glanced back and forth watching more and more of the little grabby hands creep in all around them, it was nice having a Holo Fuscite around to do mop up, duty, but even that little projection seemed to be getting bogged down. She dispelled her empty cannon and moved quickly without its encumbrance, half dodging and half stomping the little handlings in her path until she reaches Opalite and the epicenter of the little melee. With her dash the heavy scout has built up a fair amount of speed and inertia, and with her she has drawn the attention of handlings of every size from all around as she closes in on the mother creature, her second gun primed and bouncing along on her shoulder.
In an instant she has barged past Opalite and driven herself right into the Creature, bringing a knee up and driving it firmly into... into...the tummy... the palm.. yeah thats it, up against the sickly blue gem core, the impact leaving the hand looking rather stunned and gut-shot, doubling over and falling onto its front, a few small fleks or chips of its gem landing on the misty black ground. "Opalite! Three diamonds havent been enough to keep the gem empire from becoming a cold emotionless engine driven to the limits of its own expansion, One of you, stands no better chance of making it better on your own, especially if this thing's gem core is as big a pile of bad news as I feel it is!" With that she looks over her shoulder at the swarm of handlings arriving back near their mother.. it was time for something incredibly... stupid.
Carbide hefts her second cannon from her shoulder and grips both offset handles, holding the heavy armament pointing down, she lets out a harsh gravely roar and jams the weapon, muzzle first into .. whatever passed as the ground in this place with a shadowy crunch. Her grip tightens on the handles and her gem core flares to life angrily, emitting a harsh magmatic glow and a pressure wave that lifts her hair up into a tangled wave before setting it back down as she dumps a reckless amount of her magic into the embedded weapon and its hard light explosive shell. The cannon begins to groan and protest, its ratcheted ring beginning to spin violently and emit a halo of embers and slag, the whole weapon rumbling and taking on a glow like near molten iron, with ominous cracks appearing in its surface. The strain of this reckless stunt breaks her visor, freeing her misty black marble vision spheres of their camouflage.
She breaks her hands away from the booby trapped weapon as the swarm arrives and makes a mad dash for Opalite, caching him with her outstretched arm in what must have felt like a cruel clothesline maneuver. "Ground floor, gem's lean and tall appearance modifiers and head-ware!" She throws the pair of them to the ground as her overloaded gun blows apart in a brilliant explosion and shock-wave that buckles the ground and ripples out, smashing the swarm of handlings in its entirety, to smoke and launching the stunned and now savaged and smouldering hand-mother away... roughly in the direction that Fuscite had dashed off to, a few tense moments earlier, lading hard and barely moving.

Fuscite stood up a the hand flew in his general direction, running towards it and summoning a pair of blade gauntlets, leaping into the air as it landed. Using the suit's jetpack, Fuscite landed on the creature and began hacking away at it, poofing the thing. Landing on the ground with a roll, Fuscite caught the gem and looked at it for several seconds before he hurled the thing at the ground in front if his feet, a Holo-Fuscite appearing to help him crack the gem. Leaping into the air, Fuscite shot himself at the ground with the jetpack, and brought down a strike so strong it would have cleaved the thing in half, sending the two pieces flying off. But that wasn't exactly what happened. The Holo-Fuscite had mis-stepped and Fuscite missed, slamming into the ground. "My hand...is stuck." Fuscite uttered as he tried to pry his forearm from the small crater that had formed.
Post by Grand Inquisitor, Mr. O on Mar 14, 2016 0:59:18 GMT
Opalite stopped as Carbide flew past him, she seemed so eager to to some damage, his face twinged when she bashed into the creatures.... palm yes thats indeed the best way to put it. He watched the chips from the gem fly about as he ran his hand over his face before hearing Carbide speak out. "Opalite! Three diamonds haven't been enough to keep the gem empire from becoming a cold emotionless engine driven to the limits of its own expansion, One of you, stands no better chance of making it better on your own, especially if this thing's gem core is as big a pile of bad news as I feel it is!"
He looked at her, one hand gripping his cane while the other rested on his cocked hip, "Who says I want to LEAD the Gem Empire? I have been blind to what the Diamonds really have been doing.... and thats USING me! You were right! Though I hate to say it..." He was ignoring the bit of battle left around him as he spoke, "I want to see the Diamonds KNEEL before their Grand Inquisitor! They had me judging what other gems have done.... NOW IT'S THEIR TURN!" He calls out as the warping energy of the rift dimension began to flow with a bit more of a harsh tone, reacting to O's emotions.
While O was ranting a bit Carbide was off indeed doing something.. stupid. Once O realized what she was doing he just stopped and watched until she started to dash towards him, "What in my name are you do-ooooo!" As he was dropped to the ground with Carbide, the explosion shooting parts about. Even the ground had trembled from the detonation, "Ground floor, gem's lean and tall appearance modifiers and head-ware!" Of course... "I know im tall and quite lean.... what could you possibly want here? Oh-hohoho!"
Picking himself up, and even going so far as to help up Carbide with a single hand. Thats when he heard more movement about behind him, he turns and see's that fossil of a gem was beating down the hand creature and was getting close to smashing the gem! "F͡O҉O̴L!̷ ̕D͏̕o̢n͝t ̴̨҉to̴̧ùc̨͏̵ḩ ͢t͝h̶̵͢á͜t҉̢̕ ̵g͜͡e̶̡͜m͠͠!͏" The whole dimension seemed to almost flex as he spoke, the heavy distortion in his voice was echoing threw the whole pocket realm. Seeing that the old gem had missed its target he let out a soft sigh of relief.
Slowly waltzing over towards the battered gem that seemed to glow softly on the ground, the void energies almost gathering around said gem. Looking down on it for a moment, his smile seeming to almost force its way off from his face as he reached down to pick it up, using his index finger and thumb to pick up the gem. Sliding it into his palm something... happened.
The void that surrounded the gems seemed to almost stop... everything became a bit too calm. "Hmmmm....... Heh.... heheh... Oh-hohohohohoho!" He began to laugh... "O̢̕͡h͏̡-̧h̷́͡óh̨̛͠o͡h͘o̴̕͢-̀͟o̴͝h̶̀.̶.͝҉.̷̸͝ ͏̡A̷͜H̛A̵̷H̷̶͢AH҉͜AḨ͜A͢͞Ḩ̶́AHA͏H̀́À̛H͢A͜H̶!͟" The energies began to whip around very violently, O himself began to change.... his sky blue skin began to change into a pale white, his bright white eyes shifted so black... they looked almost like two gaping holes in his head. His lovely black tux began to fade into a gray shade.
"F̸̕͠INÀL̨L̶Y͘!̴̵ ̸̀TḨ̴͟I̸̧̛S̀͟ ̸͏is͡.̨́.҉..̷.̴͡." He stopped as something seemed to be wrong, his cane had dropped onto its side bouncing on the ground a few times as his hands shot up to his head. Images.... very large images began to flash in the background of the void.... so fuzzy before growing more clear, "W̵̸̛ha̶̢t͡.̸.̨̨͠.̵̸.̨͟ ̷̸͢is̢҉ ͞ha̵͡p͏p̀̕͜eņ͡i̧n̸͠g̛?̢͝!" The images began to be visible now... it looked like... a very young O standing before a large figured... the figure was blurry but it was clear that the young O was speaking with a Diamond. Then it began to flash threw Mr. O's memories.... him in a dark room speaking with a gem... then flashing to his cane forcing down onto the forehead of a terrified gem before it shatters.
"G͘͟͢͡è̸̴̵͡t̵̛̀͝.̨́͟͢͠.̷͟͜͡.͘͢҉̶ ͏͡O̴͝U̸̷̢̕T͡ ̸̶̨͜͡Ǫ̶̀͞F̶ ͜͢͞M̷̀̕Y̡̡̨̛͞ ̡͘H̷̴́͜͜E̵͠Á̡̨̕͘D̵̶͡!̴̡!͢͜͠" the void energy was still broadcasting his memories along the outside of the dimension for all to see. O himself was on his knees gripping his head, his hat just barley staying afloat over his dome. More memories flashing by and even a shot of when Mr. O had trapped Carbide on that planet.... turns out he wasn't even the one to fire at the warp pad.... a Pearl had pressed the wrong button.... O didn't skip a beat before jamming his hand threw the projection of the Pearl and shattering the gem with his hand... O was clearly losing control of everything at this point.

Carbide stood dumbfounded for a moment as she watched the visions leap forth, or perhaps be pulled forth, kicking and screaming from Opalite ' s consciousness. Could it really be true, that it wasn't him who had all but tried to melt her to slag?
Whats more, her true assailant had been a careless pearl. This was all so confusing and it shook a lot of her mental perceptions of the past 1000 years to their core. Even if it had been an unfortunate pearl that had fired the index cannon, why had Opalite responded so violently....almost as if in vengeance? Could it be that he didn't really want her gone, or perhaps he was angered by the prospect of not finishing off the Heavy Scout with his own hands, and that pearl had simply stolen his thunder.
As much as she wanted to believe that his vindictive act had been due to a warm heart, the practical and experienced side of her mind knew she would have to sort that out later. For now that tuxedoed fool was in for more trouble than he expected, and from the sound of his shouts and the severity of his thrashing she knew that this mystery rift gem music have a far more powerful mental hold than any of them could have anticipated....although it wasn't like she hadn't warned Opalite about this from the first moment she saw that malevolent hand creature.
There wasn't any time to lose, now that she had snapped herself back into the moment, the disembodied memories still floating and flickering about in the air as she dives on Mr.O and begins wrestling with his arm in sort of a buzzard one limber wrestling hold, with both legs wrapped about his shoulder and braced against his neck, while she used her arms and hands to pry at the gem in his hands. Closer and closer, bit by bit she worked his fingers open but as she came in contact with its sickly glassy surface a hard shock greets the scout and sends her sprawling a few feet away onto her back.
Carbide's whole head was ringing and her body ached like fire as she clamboured back up to her feet. It was clear that this gem was not about to give up its new host willingly, and being unable to touch it, made her list of options shorter and more grim, to say the least. The dark gem's energy still periodically pulsed over her body, making her jolt and spasm like a human with a bad case of the hiccups as she drew forth her weapon from her gem, the effort for which showed evident on her face...she was getting tired. Her boots stagger over to the thrashing ringmaster and with a stomp she pins down his arm and levels her weapon ' s muzzle towards the gem, in the hand. Her weapon ratchets and manifests a hard light grape shot, useful for a dispersed attack, but this was literally point blank..
A few inky black tears creep out the edges of her dark marble eyes..she really didn't like hurting others, much less someone who was being held down, but this was an emergency, and she was so glad that Opalite ' s gem core was safely on his head, rather than the back of his hand or something.."I don't know of you can hear much, Opalite, but I am really sorry! I can't think of anything else to do!"..there is a flash and a boom, and a concentrated wall of hard light grape shot is sent on an impact course with the pinned arm and the monstrous gem clutched in Opalite ' s hijacked palm..It was SO time for that creature to die!

Opalite was holding onto the last few bits of control he had over himself... things were growing hazy and things were... blurry. He never felt this weakness before, he didn't even feel like he was strong enough to shift out of his dimension. Still "resting" on his knees as his vision twisted and no one looked the same, Carbide had been replaced in his eyes... he glanced up for just a moment to see White Diamond standing were Carbide was.... yes it was indeed just Carbide but the evil little gem had dug deep enough to know the few things that can shake him.
Then before he was able to understand what was happening, White Diamond (Carbide) dashed over and began to wrestle with his arm. While in his mind he was screaming and shouting for her to get off him but... nothing came from his mouth, had he lost the ability to talk?! It didn't matter as White Diamond (Again Carbide) got shot away from him thanks to the energy blast from the little gem. He stayed on the ground trying with all his might to stand but... it was to no avail. His projection was no longer his own.
"I don't know of you can hear much, Opalite, but I am really sorry! I can't think of anything else to do!".
What was White Diamond talking about? Since when did she say sorry? "M-My Diamond.... I... H-Hate yo..." Was all he could manage before a heavy boot pinning his arm down, he looked up at what looked like White Diamond to him for a moment before the blast, his eyes bright and wide, his smile almost glitching from his face, "I̶͡͡l̢͢͝l ̴kì̴͜l͠l ̴͘y̸̡óu̸͞..̶̛̕.͘.͝͏ ̨̛F̢͏-̶͏̀f̵͡o̕ŕ͏̷ ̵C̶͏a͝͠͏r̴͡b̕i̸̕d̵͝è ̷̴à̡n͠d̨͘͞ ͟͞͡A͘g̷a̧͢t̷͢e̕̕͟.͢.̛̛.̸̵ ̸͜͏k̸͠i̕l҉̀͡l ̢m̵è͢ ͜n̨̧̛o̴͏w.̢.͞.̢͜ before I-" He was cut off as the blast from Carbides cannon and completely shattered the gem.... along with poofing Mr. O rather quickly. As soon as O had poofed Carbide and Fuscite would pretty much be kicked from the dimension, returning to the empty hallway they had been before. Being expelled from the rift dimension would be quite forceful. There around a few dark shards was Opalites perfectly oval gem.... shining brightly just.... with this crack across the top.....

Carbide sunk to the ground, settling on her butt, as the last few fragments of her visor broke away from her head and clattered to the ground then disappeared in a sparkling magical 'pop', leaving the scout looking utterly depleted as she stared at a spot on the ground a couple meters away at the silent white gem sitting there quietly. She wipes her face with the back of her hand, attempting to clear away some of her inky blakc tears, but it didnt really help too much but it was enough to allow her to catch site of Fulgur and Fuscite near by. She let out a raspy huff, glad to see that both appeared okay as well.
The rapid pace that she had been forced to call upon her cannon shots left her feeling sick and shakey, she wondered if this is how humans felt when they were experiencing shock. She shook her head, she hadnt expected a blast to Opalite's extremeties to be enough to cause his whole body projection to come undone, but from what she saw, it was more like the dark gem had outright highjacked it, and Opalite's gem was just along for the ride at that point.
Her eye catches sight of one of the ramining fragments of the gem creature, flickering on the floor beside her, and immediately her knuckle armored fist slams down upon it, with an exhausted roar, the impact reducing the shard to little more than beach sand, sitting in a fist sized crater in the tile floor of the sea spire.
Carbide rises shakily to her feet and while clutching her stomach region.. a sicly feeling remaining from the rapturous force of being ejected from the rift plane, remaining, staggers over to Opalite's gem and her mind begins replaying all the thoughts, words and memories she had seen get pried forefully from Opalite's mind, and now here he was, silently glistening on the ground. She wasnt sure if it was the force of the creatures energy, the shockwave from her gun or the ejection from the rift plane, but she sighed when she noticed the hairline crack running along the top..
She bends down slowly, her whole body, durable as it might be, feeling rather tender, and scoops up the smooth cool gem in the palm of her armored glove and holds it delicately as a human might, a family Christmas tree ornament. "You.. poor sad, sad fool..you were never an enemy, were you?"
She draws her hand in, and lids her black marble like eyes and gives Opalite's shimmering surface a small kiss that summons a dark plum bubble with an iridescent sheen about the gem. It floats up and settles in the air somewhere about her shoulders and follows along as she goes to check on Fuscite.." rrf..you just.. take a rest, we'll figure this out... Fuscite! you still in one piece?"
Post by The God-Emperor of Gemkind on May 8, 2016 3:00:36 GMT
Fuscite had given up on trying to remove her arm from the crater it had created, sitting and watching as Carbide shot Opalite with her cannon. The old explorer winced slightly, and then jumped a bit when one of the shards flew into her visor. When she looked back up, Fuscite took notice of Carbide's ill condition, disconnecting the stuck gauntlet from the ground and rushing to her. Meanwhile, a Holo-Fuscite tried to remove the gauntlet again. The armored gem placed her hands on Carbide's shoulders, looking her up and down. "I'm fine. Are you?" She said in a worried tone. She raised her exposed arm and wiped away said tears. " Don't cry, Carbide. Crying doesn't...change anything. You did...what needed...to be done. Opalite is...fine. I think. Now..could you...help me...retrieve my gauntlet?" Fuscite said as she turned to look at the hologram trying, unsuccessfully, to remove the blasted thing from it's hole.
Post by ~Panzerschurke~ on May 8, 2016 4:37:26 GMT
Carbide grins wearily as Fuscite meets her half way, leaning against the green explorer while she finishes wiping a few more black smudges from her cheeks, the bubble floating softly along behind her. She smiles weakly, her normal plum grey skin tone looking a teensy bit washed out and pale.. "And that is why... I usually try hitting targets with my cannons, instead of firing at everything that moves.. I think I'm gonna need a nap .. and a pizza.. and a spa day.. and another pizza while at the spa..thank you for the help, my head feels funny.. I think its also partially the shock I got from that weird creature's gem core. Nasty stuff.."
She nods to Fuscite's request and with her help, makes her way back over to the gauntlet embedded deep in the ground. She pushes off rather unsteadily from her precursor, and shoos the holo-clone a few feet away, then raises her boot and with a stubborn stomp, brings it down, near the gauntlet and fractures the cement in a few places, enough to loosen the bind on the gauntlet, which she bends down and tugs from its earthen prison, unharmed aside from a few new scratches in its green plating and hands back to Fuscite.
"Okay, lets get back to town, I'll get Opalite to the Crystal Gem's fountain as soon as I can scope out a time when their Leader, wont be there, just in case she gets a lil grumpy about Opalite being there. For now, I'll bet hes beat, he ll be nice and safe in that little bubble while he rests. Till then, you can help me carry my ass to the pizzeria, deal?"
With that the party hobbles their way towards the warp pad, back to more familiar territory..
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"'s Origin is still unknown, some suspect it was a viral infection, other claim it was a Diamond experiment gone awry and other suspect the organics were behind it. Regardless no one seem to have a proper answer about what it was and why its only isolated to Earth
*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
