Fluorite shrugged at Indicolite's statement, not caring much. He raised himself to his feet, following after Citrine as she approached Indy for a proper greeting.
"Aww~ She's learning human gestures!" Fluorite said happily, a broad smile appearing on his face. Then he heard what she was about to say, her facet and cut number. He raised a brow and looked between the two as they continued on.
"You... you?" He shook his head and looked down, "Erm... I forgot what that stuff was, but it's something from Homeworld that's all I can remember." Fluorite had forgotten most of his past on Homeworld and lived in his life on Earth.
The purple gem brought his head back up to look at Indicolite as he finished his greeting. 'Is Citrine going to get confused? A number identifying what you were on Homeworld makes you... you? Wait, wait! Is Indy with Homeworld?! Does that mean I have to shatter him...? Don't get ahead of yourself, idiot.'
"H-hey!" She cried, glancing back at Fluorite, feeling her face grow hot. "I- I was just- I simply thought that it would be better to appear cordial towards gems and that gesture you showed me seemed appropriate is all."
She was thankful when Indicolite began to speak again.
"Homeworld? Oh, no I was made here on Earth, actually." Citrine said, trying to shrug off her earlier embarassment.
While she did take some comfort in the familiar, having the tourmaline give his number, she had to disagree. She never felt that Facet 0SI2 Cut 3AL made her anything.
"I'm not sure how much that applies to me, I mean most of the time it was just 'hey, you' or 'runt' among other, less pleasant names." She said, crossing her arms over her chest. "Numbers were really only used when giving reports or introducing yourself to gems from other facets and the like."
She glanced over at Fluorite again. "Must be nice to have always been just Fluorite then." She said, almost wistfully.
Indy was only slightly shocked when Citrine informed him that she was made right here, on Earth. "Oh?" He shook away his mistake, an honest one at that. From his experience, most gems created on this planet quickly forgot their Homeworld given numbers, and he wondered what could've made Citrine remember hers. Still, he was prying into personal matters and he quickly decided he would avoid any more intimate questions, unless someone asked him first. With some flair, Indy hopped out of the fountain and sat on its edge, still lingering on the topic of numbers and whatnot. The blue gem quickly became uncomfortable, however, as he realized that Citrine seemed to have a bad history with Homeworld, and that probably meant she would ally herself with the crystal gems. It was a shame, really. Ever since the Rose Quartz fiasco, and the division of gem beliefs, Indicolite had not once met another gem who shared his ideals of neutrality. There was always still a ray of hope however, and so Indy decided he would ask Citrine outright. "So... you're from Earth..." With some more flair, Indy popped off his bum before turning to face Citrine. "Where do you stand on this conflict? The Crystal Gems? The Homeworld Triarchy? Or something else, perhaps?"
"I haven't really made a decision yet. But, siding with homeworld is out of the question, they'd shatter me if I tried to go back to them. But, I don't know about the Crystal gems either." She looked up at the sky, the sun was beginning to sink behind the mountains, staining the clouds a soft orange hue.
"I was actually just talking about this with Fluorite before you showed up," She said, "I don't want to be a soldier for them, not if I'm fighting for something I'm not even sure I believe in." Citrine ran her fingers through her hair, "Unless I find something on this planet worth protecting, and I mean worth getting your gem shattered into a thousand pieces worth, then I might. If not, I might just let things happen."
Part of her hated sounding so apathetic. There had to be something on this planet that had value to her, that she could fight for. Maybe it was that nearly forgotten part of herself, the newly-formed citrine who had first emerged from her hole, just so happy to be alive, exploring every crag and patch of shriveled grass with such wonder. If it had been her who'd seen places like this fountain, or the beach, before she'd realized she was a malformed gem living in a world that demanded nothing less than perfection, would she feel differently? Would she risk being shattered if it meant these places and all the creatures who lived here would be safe?
Fluorite giggled, but awkwardly shifted around. "Quick to strike a conversation! Seems like you're getting along with Indy just fine~" he chimed with a smile. "Earth and it's life, and perhaps some of the more adorable gems," he said, nudging Citrine, "Is enough for me to protect."
"Something to note, though, is that I'm fairly certain that there will be a time to decide when a war breaks out. Perhaps I'll see means to protect the undecided gems. At least, I think that's what I'm suppose to do!" Fluorite laughed.
The purple gem continue to shift in place oddly. "Erm... Maybe I should get going... You look like you can get along just well- without me. Y-yeah...," Fluorite played with his thumbs and then reached his hand to rub the back of his neck.
Indy simply nodded as Citrine explained her position, understanding where her uneasiness came from. A small part of the blue gem was glad to have found another gem who didn't immediately side with one faction, but at the same time, Indy himself knew the dangers of indecisiveness. Turning his attention to Fluorite, Indy suddenly felt guilty as he realized he truly had butt into their conversation, and if his face could turn red, it would. Quickly adjusting his posture, Indy strolled over to Fluorite and patted him on the back. "Alright then, I've healed up. You should stay Fluorite, I've got adventures to go on!" The blue gem whistled an old, merry tune he had learned, before giving Citrine a smile. "You'll do fine, just relax!"
"Huh? Woah, woah. N-nah. In fact! You should take Citrine with you!" He looked over to Citrine, tilting his head with a raised brow. "You guys both seem very neutral on this whole crisis and have way more things to talk about than I can think of," he explained as he looked between the two.
"Besides, I think she's rested long enough. I doubt she's even explored some of Earth's beauty and dangers," he turned to Citrine briefly, "The dangers can get really fun, especially this cold fluffy stuff called snow. Hehehe, that's how I met Indy." Fluorite smiled at them, nudging Citrine toward Indicolite. "I'm sure it'd be nice to hang around with a different gem instead of me~"
Citrine flinched at the sudden physical contact. She was sure they had probably noticed, but went on as though nothing out of the ordinary had happened.
"O-oh, uh yes I suppose," Citrine said, not entirely sure of what Fluorite was getting at.
She listened to them speak a little while longer. They had been here for quite some time, and she was certainly feeling better than she had in quite some time. Fluorite already taken so much of his own time to help her and he probably had other things he needed to do. As for Indy, he'd only happened upon them by chance. He wasn't obligated to stick around at all.
"Oh, I know about snow." She said, grimacing when he mentioned it. "But not like that, I've only ever seen it as horrible slush that existed just to make everything at least three times as difficult." She disliked being cold almost as much, despite not having to worry about hypothermia, it was still incredibly unpleasant.
"Anyway," She sighed, "I was thinking about heading off on my own. I can see for myself what this planet has to offer."
Indicolite simply snorted at Fluorite's suggestion for him to take Citrine along on some adventures. It seemed that the purple gem was trying to dump this new responsibility on him, and Indy definitely not up to the task. At the same time, Indy felt that it would be pleasant to have someone other than Blaire to go on adventures with, but Citrine's next few statements made him rethink the idea. The blue gem decided that he would leave the offer on the table, before making his exit. "Well, if you ever do decide that you want to tag along, feel free to find me! Well.. if you can, that is." With that, Indicolite scampered over to the exit, and hopped onto the warpad. WIth a playful salute, a beam of light engulfed the blue gem, and after a brief moment, Indy had teleported away.
Fluorite nodded toward Citrine, then glanced to Indy as he made his statement and exited from the area. "Well, if you are going to go explore the Earth by yourself, do be careful. Many malevolent gems lurk around," Fluorite informed her, looking a bit worried.
"Seeing how you've somewhat came over a part of your fear, I can see you are strong and capable of taking care of yourself," he said with a giggle. "Anyways, I guess that sums up everything here. I don't want to be a bother~."
He moved forward to step onto the warp pad, turning around and facing Citrine. "Oh! Do call for me if you need me. I'll be there in a puff of smoke~"
Fluorite giggled and waved as a beam of light swallowed the purple gem. After a second, he had left Rose's Fountain.
She watched the two of them go, leaving her with only the sound of the fountain for company. The sun had finally set behind the mountains and the first stars of the evening were beginning to appear in the sky. Citrine had no idea what lay ahead of her, and that was still terrifying. However, now she had met gems who actually seemed to care about her, and that seemed to ease some of her fears. She almost hated to leave the fountain, but she knew staying here would probably lead to trouble if some less than friendly gems showed up. Besides, there was a whole planet for her to explore now.
Citrine passed a statue of Rose as she made her way to the warp pad.
'What made you want to protect this planet so badly?' Citrine thought, stepping on to the faintly glowing crystal. 'So much that you were willing to start a war to defend this rock? Do you know how many gems are willing to die for you? How many you're going to have to shatter before this is all over?'
There was a flash of blue light as the warp enveloped her and a moment later she was gone.

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
