A tiny Bruneau Jasper crawled out of her hole for the 324th day in a row. She was faced with the same bright orb flying high above her head as the noon before; the one that reminded her so much of the 'yellow diamond' that was mentioned and sketched on the margins of the notes she found underground. Huge, imposing, and... the worst of all... yellow. Bruneau let out a sigh as she scanned her surroundings, for the 324th time. The same purple-red clay in the hundred foot deep ravine as the days before. The layers always caught her eye, with the different shades of the same colors, but not today. The huge, reddish spider-esque machines that she tore apart time and time again no longer startled her once she exited her 'home'. She did not scan to see if there was anything hiding in the holes surrounding hers. For once, she wasn't excited to build something new with these machine parts that were messily strewn around her hole only. She only looked up, left, and down. "Hmph, for once, there's actually nothing to do here." However, she hadn't actually explored further than a couple miles down in each direction. Her brown eyes drew to the top of the ravine wall. To her rough four feet to the hundreds of feet that was this wall, she couldn't escape. She was actually rather lonely here. Until, on this one morning, two thoughts popped into the little Jasper's mind.

Danny Sapphire just so happened to be lurking about, he wasn't sure what it was about the Kindergartens, but he always found himself drawn to one. He couldn't understand what they were and how they made him, and the curiosity was tearing him up on the inside. What is the deal with these crazy places? He thought to himself the further he lurked onward. At first, he thought the one he popped out of was the only one. But during his wacky misadventures during the 30's to 40's, he had discovered a few others scattered from place to place in Europe as well. This only caused the plot to thicken, it was clear they were apart of some larger scheme, but wh-
Hey, is that a Jasper? Danny suddenly thought to himself as he look down a cliff further downward into the haunting canyon and noticed a small gem looking around, surrounding by mechanical parts. Perhaps they have the answers he wants, or at the very least they can give him answers to ANYTHING relating to this spooky place. "Hey! You down there!" He calls out to the Jasper, in leaning over the cliff his foot twists at an angle, causing him to lose his balance, he falls and rolls down the hill, "OoooaaaaaAAAAAHHH!!" He shrieks as he takes a rough tumble down, landing a few feet from the Jasper.
Yes! Yes! If I can just measure how high the wall is and come up with an algorithm for -- Her thoughts were abruptly cut off as she heard, "Hey! You down there!" Coming from above her. She looked up and saw a tall figure, only a shadow against the diamond behind him. Her little legs sprung her back a few feet when she heard it, and her eyes widened a significant amount. As if they couldn't get any wider, when she heard his screams of terror as he fell down the ravine's side, they opened even more. Bruneau stared at his motionless body for about a minute, with her jaw slack. He appeared older than her by a few years; in human standards anyway. She read they seemed to age relatively quickly+. His hair had collected dust and a few pebbles from his fall, but otherwise looked quite smooth. He wore the clothes of 'humans', which she had read up on underground. The books described their style as 'disorganized, primitive, and ragged'. He definitely did not look 'polished, clean, and modern' like the books said a gem would. Another thirty seconds of looking, and she spotted the absolutely gorgeous, circular blue stone that was planted in his neck. He was a gem, then. As if the blue skin and teal hair hadn't pronounced it enough... Bruneau realized he might be hurt, even though he didn't crack his gem, the fall was undoubtedly painful. Quickly, she scurried over to his side, and placed a small hand on his shoulder, and a digit poked his nose. "H-Hey!" She tried to yell, but it only came out as a timid squeak, "A-Are you ok? A-Are..." She gasped, looking over his body. "Are you... dead?"

Everything was still for a second, dead silent even, before suddenly- "I'm not dead, so I think I'm dandy." Muttering a bit as he stirs awake after blacking out from the fall, Danny rolled onto his back, his first priority was to check his jacket. He sits up and checks his jacket for any damage. Aside from a couple of smaller scratch marks which he could get fixed by a tailor and some dirt, it was fine. "Whew." He lets out a wheeze of relief, then he checks his gem. Seems fine, no chips or any damage. Nobody would quite understand why Danny's list of priorities were like this and why his jacket mattered to him so much. Really, it's a story for another day. He looks around, squinting before he realizes his sunglasses fell off his face.
Putting his shades back on, he looked over at Bruneau, "So, uh... Hi!" He says with a wave and a grin, "I'm Danny Sapphire!" He introduces himself, this was certainly a way to make an entrance, he thought to himself.
"So uh... Hi! I'm Danny Sapphire." Bruneau's face scrunched up in confusion as her spine curled and she hunched over, inching back. Her wide eyes rested on this Sapphire's, and her brows furrowed again. So he's not dead... I don't think. He said he wasn't so I guess he isn't... "S-So...? What are uhm.. what are you doing here? I've never seen... never seen a Sapphire around here." She turned to the side and muttered, "The Books never said anything about this place sprouting Sapphires..." Quickly, she snapped back to him. "B-But then again, heh, I've never seen anyone around here... It's uh, it's just been me for... 324 days..." His appearance caught her train of thought yet again. Why was a Sapphire wearing human attire? According to the Books, gems were usually wearing something less... strange. A-And the way he checked it before his gem! What's wrong with him? He could've been dead! That jacket must be important...
Suddenly she wanted to touch it. Bruneau Jasper almost laughed aloud.

Danny blinked, what was that about 'the books'? He thought for a moment, Perhaps these books could give him answers about his heritage, "Well, for starters, I'm a Star Sapphire, there's probably a difference. I'm not sure, really. Secondly, I was just lookin' around, I have no idea what the deal with my heritage is, but it's connected to spooky places like this one we're standing in." He says with a shrug as he stands up, brushing himself off afterwards. "324 days? Geez, That's almost a year, I don' think I could've gone that long without interaction." He replies, looking around at the scattered pieces of machine around Brunaeu, "You, uh... Work with machines, I take it?" He asks with a grin, he notices Brunaeu looking like they want to laugh, "Er, is something funny, or...?" He tilted his head a bit out of sheer confusion, this gem's seeming more screw loose in the head now than he first intended.
For a minute, Bruneau just stood there and nodded - once more vigorously when he said "You uh, work with machines, I take it." - listening intently with that look of amusement still lowkey playing her features. "Er, is something funny, or...?" It took her a second to realize what he was referencing. She was probably making a stupid face that led him to believe she was insane. Oops. She thought, Ugh, stop embarrassing yourself, pebble! On the outside, she cringes and lets out a mousy giggle. "Uh, s-sorry, I was just thinking about how you tended to your jacket before your gem. I-I might add," Bruneau paused for a moment, wondering if this was an ok thing to say to a person. "y-your gem is very pretty." Might he think it's rude? D-Do people ... do people say that?

Danny kind of stared a bit as Brunaeu let out a giggle, "It's, uh. All fine." He replied with a shrug, "You probably just don' know how to act around people. Bein' all alone like you've been for so long." He explained, then the mention of his jacket came up and how it checked it's condition before he checked his gem, "Oh that. Yeeaah." He scratched the back of his head, "The jacket means a lot to me, and I've taken harder tumbles before. So I figured I was fine right off the bat." He explained to the small gem. Then she called his gem pretty, this caught Danny off guard a bit, "O-oh, uh... Thanks!" He grinned, the compliment made him feel pretty good, actually. "Your's is, too." He proceeded to say.
Bruneau nodded, "O-Oh, that's good then! I-I mean, n-not that you fell, b-but...y-yeah." She watched him grin when he acknowledged her com..pli...ment? But when he called her gem pretty in response, she almost keeled over. Instead of blushing profusely, she paled to an unbelievable extent. "Hehheh --- y-you w-what-t? I-I-I d-d-do-n't reall-y l-l-like mm-inne but-t th-thank y-y-y-you? Hehhhehhh, a-and it'ss in a-a weirrd sp...ot? Uhhhhhh ---" She continues to freak out, her volume decreasing as she goes on. Until after a solid few minutes, she's curled up on the ground, with her knees pulled tight to her chest and her curly hair floating down in silken spirals around her. He couldn't have meant that, could he? Her gem was just a color, and ugly one at that, with different shades of it splatted around in big circles. Bad. Bad bad bad.
Bruneau sat, quietly rocking. Danny was right. She couldn't know better, but if anything she could've tried to do better than this.

Danny noticed Bruneau pale up, he got concerned, "O-oh! I didn' mean to make you uncomfortable!" He told the small gem, his tone was filled with concern as he just kind of stood there, his mind rushed with things to say and do about this, but he was kind of uneasy and felt like anything he would say would probably make the ordeal get worse than it already was, "Do... Do you need a minute?" He asked, "We can talk once you calm down, if you want. I don't wanna pressure you into anything if your not ready to talk about it." He told Brunaeu with a small wheeze, Danny then backed off a bit to give her some space, if she wanted to talk about whatever was wrong. He'd wait until she was less panicked about it.
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
