Olivine had loosely accommodated herself with beach city and surprisingly avoided most contact with other gems. She almost felt sorry for the humans. So many estranged gems knowing little of their culture and to proud to simply just watch. But, then again most gems weren't like Olivine.. she had been watching for years. Truth was she didn't have any real love for the humans... but, she certainly didn't want to contribute to ruining their lives. Sometimes she wondered if in action is the same as action.
By this point her head was to muddy and she didn't much care for it. She shook her head noticing the pier lights had come on and their own little pier centered carnival lit up the boardwalk. The ferris wheel was particularly beautiful. Olivine almost forgot she was carrying a bag of greasy fries as she stared on in bemusement.
Her clothes were layers of human exterior garb to include a oversized hoodie that didn't conform to her light form. To the average inattentive person she seemed like a hoodlum, or at least a person who didn't want attention. Truelly it was a bad disguise to avoid humans; however, most gems really didn't bother her like this. And, boy howdy is it more comfortable than armor... she shuddered remembering her time in England.
She reached into her pocket and pulled out a wad of cash that she collects from being a day worker and purchased tickets. She felt confident this place would offer some great lounge time... and some great people watching. One thing to be noticed about this figure is she gave most trash cans a wide birth.
The carnival! Such a wonderful place in town, dense with all sorts of human treats and practices. Perhaps to some Homeworld gems the place would seem uninteresting or downright disgusting, but for a little blue gem it was a wonderland. In one hand he held a human confectionery known as 'cotton candy', although it was much tastier than actual cotton, and in the other a 'churro'. Both delicious, sugary human foods that were high on his list of favorites. On his way from ride to ride he spotted a newcomer, just purchasing their tickets as he walked by. He stopped, noticing the person's odd attire, looking as if they didn't want a piece of anyone's business. But he was having none of that! This was a place for happiness and enjoying oneself!
Stopping in his tracks, the gem turned and B-lined towards the sad looking human(?) "Hello!" he waved enthusiastically, cotton candy still in hand, "Hi there, I'm Agate nice to meet you. Couldn't help but notice you looked bumbed out friend! So consider this my formal invitation to a good time this fine night!" with a big grin on his face he bowed deeply, arm raising behind him (holding his churro in hand) and pressing his other arm to his chest. He stood back up with a slight bounce and motioned for them to follow, "And I simply won't take no for an answer! Tonight is a night for fun!" And off he went, rushing towards a nearby ride consisting of a set of electrical vehicles in a small pen set up to bounce against each other. It was called... 'bumper carts'.
Olivine was a bit taken back by the sudden approach of this gem. She tucked her head back and tried her best to hide her complexion. He didn't seem to have noticed the fact she was a gem yet thankfully; but, at the same time his light suit showed no affiliation of any kind. That could simply be a ruse to get in close with rebel, or in her case... criminally neutral gems good graces. Worst she couldn't even tell what kind of gem he was. Perhaps... he was... no he couldn't be one. She paused her confusion and caught up to all he was saying. He can't really be serious could he?
Curious enough to risk it she shoves her tickets and fries in some of her baggy pockets and fallowed behind with her hands firmly hidden and slouching. "So... you, are a bit of a social butterfly ain't-cha. Not everyday someone invites me to anything." Olivine began looking at the bumper cars and her mind spun the possibilities and statistics of the game. She began diagnosing the cars and listening to their voices. After a moment she shook the fog from her head and smirked to the blue gem.
"I'm umm... not exactly a... well good companion for these sort of things." she aimlessly feeds her gluttonous side and pulls out a bundle of fries eating them. Her green hand openly visible. There was also ample opportunity to see her soft subtle green lips as she spoke and the emmisive entrancing hue of her purple eyes. She spoke as a dove on a winter's breeze, which was the natural state of her voice. "so maybe... one of the other girls around here... could entertain you.. umm, Agate was it?"
Agate stopped in his tracks, turning back around to face the hooded-stranger. She was being incredibly hesitant, odd for what appeared to be a human coming to a place of such festivities. However his sharp eyes began to notice subtle hints, the complexion of her hands, her colored lips, deep purple eyes. All features perhaps an expressive human could have, perhaps colored contact lenses with lipstick and gloves, but he knew better than that. Either way, he gave no indication he was on to her, more than a little understanding of the situation.
He drew himself up, taking a moment to gather his thoughts. Eventually he regained his big smile, noticing her enjoyment of human food. He offered his cotton candy to her, non-eaten side facing her, "Please, have a bite. It's one of my favorite sweets." Whether or not she accepted he continued, "I wouldn't call myself a 'social butterfly'. More like... an inquisitive bee buzzing around people. And while there may be plenty of others around to keep me company, I want to keep you company. No matter how skilled you may be at accompanying me. So come on, let's have some fun shall we?" He attempted to grab her hand and lead her towards the ride. Assuming she accepted he pulls a wallet from his vest pocket and pulls out a couple of tokens for the both of them. He immediately goes for a car with a similar blue complexion as he had, and was ready to go once the power turned on.
If she still refused he would stand there, arms crossed until he either got a suitable answer or came up with another idea.

"A giant wheel of light!? I must say.... humans are quiet smart for having such short lives..." this was the thought that was running threw the mind of Mr. O as he stood on the beach, of course in his rift dimension. It seems that the humans a built up a whole show of lights and other things, they always seem to have some kind of entertaining thing going on now-a-days. He figured it might be quiet fun to venture out and see what all the fuss was about, it would be a lie if he say he didn't want to check out the giant wheel of light.
Taking his sweet 'ol time making his way over to the festivities, it didn't take him long to realize that this was a very bland party... all humans! Sure they were selling some odd looking foods but he didn't know what any of them were, he didn't want anything that would taste bad since the whole "Eating" thing was still rather new to him. "So ____ on, let's ____ some ___ shall we?" it was hard for him to understand but this voice was something... he heard before. Waltzing about trying to find said voice it wasn't long before he found young Agate! Speaking with what at first sight he would guess was a human but.... something was off about the figure in a hoodie.
Silently reaching his goal, he found Agate and this human.... when an idea crossed his wonderfully evil mind, "Oh-hoho! This should be good!" He thought to himself as he places his nimble fingers onto the brim of his hat, holding it over the "Humans" head he shifts his hat into the real world... just over the humans head so to Agate.... Mr. O's hat appears in a blue blur over the humans head.... before a gust of wind catching hold of it and pulling it from O's hand. "Pffft! Of course! Damn planet...." He mumbles to himself as he tried to figure out where his hat had flown off too... maybe Agate or the human saw where it had went. He figured he would remain hidden until a better time... maybe once they found his hat.
Olivine was unsure about this little blue gem. Well little is a matter of perspective. With the number of quartz based gems she had run into of late she was little. Regardless he seemed... innocent enough. She blinked as the cotton candy was presented to her and she couldn't help but chortle a bit and blush from the sound she made. She tried to play it off and well... being the glutton she was she more than happily ate some.
She instantly seemed confused as the fluff melted in her mouth like a magic trick performed by those street artisans. "It... it just vanished?... I didn't swallow it... mhhmmm but tasty... so gonna have to get some... what was this? A sweet... sweet fluff... I will need to get some sweet fluff for my next lounge time." she smiled from ear to ear.
Sadly Olivine missed the antics of Mr. O and his hat. She looked to the bumper cars and seem mildly interested. Perhaps one ride. The voices of the cars were a mix bag really some seemed terribly down trotted while others were exuberant. Olivine began filtering their voices out when suddenly she heard a yelping scream as the wind picked up. She held her hood down in the hopes Agate had yet to realize she was a gem.
She slowly looks around and see's a fabulous hat in the dirt. She chuckles a bit as the hat was too funny in it's posturing and complaining. It spoke rather fast so she had trouble hearing all of it. "Excuse me... Agate... one moment. Save me a car please."
Olivine leaps over the guardrail of the bumper car hut and seems to catch a soft wind that made her fall very very slow. "Shusshhh shushh... it's okay.. it's okay I got you. Come here little guy." she picks up the hat brushing it off a bit and pulling a bit of used gum from it's brim. "Huh... ? No... your still quite handsome... No... no I mean fabulous, absolutely debonair. A regular gentleman... I'm sure you weren't meant to be... okay.. okay... come with me sweetheart."
Olivine turns and jumps over the rail smiling to Agate holding her new friend, "Sorry about that."
Agate couldn't help but notice a hat seemingly form out of thin air. Speaking of air, the wind managed to pick up and send it flying off. He mentally shrugged, perhaps he just mistook the hat flying by for it materializing. After all, that made much more sense that it appearing out of nowhere. Ignoring the event he rushed off to the ride, coins in hand, halting just as the hooded stranger called out for him to pause. He waited patiently as she entered the ring, picked up the hat, and seemed to... talk to it? Strange, but he figured she was simply talking to herself.
However what did catch his attention was the hat itself, now that he could look at it closer. It was unmistakably owned by the one and only Mr. O. He looked around, examining the area, expecting to see the tall figure but he was nowhere to be seen. He was surprised his hat got so far away from him, being his prized possession and all. Then it clicked, the hat HAD appeared from somewhere. Specifically from Opalite's pocket dimension. He smiled, "Thanks so much for finding my hat! I've been looking all over for that!" he stretches his hand out for the hat. He notices her hesitation, but his smile did not falter and eventually she must have decided he was trustworthy enough. Besides, it was just a hat.
He then entered the ride, presumably with his temporary companion, with the hat on his head. The article of clothing was notably large for him, but it was not an issue for long. Once on the ride his plan began to unfold. As the ride started and cars began to siege one another Agate began to keep his eyes out the outskirts of the car pen as he began to act as if he was losing his grip on the hat. He would turn and swing around, allowing the hat to almost fall off his head and into the chaos that was the battlefield of carts. After a few minutes of toying with the hat Agate came to a complete halt, bending forward dramatically as the hat flew off his head and into the rink. The hat landed on the floor, right between a mess of cars. If anything would get O to show his well-dressed self it'd be this. Failing to hide a smirk, he put the (as the humans would say) 'petal to the metal' and went full speed towards the hat and the car on the other side, on a collision course for the piece of clothing.

Opalite figured since he could call his hat back to him at any time, he wanted to let this play out. Swiftly following after the human looking fellow in the hood as they moved after his lovely hat. "Shusshhh shushh... it's okay.. it's okay I got you. Come here little guy." Was.... was this person speaking to his hat? "I mean... it IS an amazing hat so... why NOT speak with it?!" The thoughts echoed loudly around O, drifting threw the rift around him but staying clear of entering the real world.
"Huh... ? No... your still quite handsome... No... no I mean fabulous, absolutely debonair. A regular gentleman... I'm sure you weren't meant to be... okay.. okay... come with me sweetheart." She was so smooth... and kind even to just his hat! (Lovely it be though) This made O smile a bit brighter then normal as he watched this person clean the hat and take it back to Agate, with Mr O following behind her of course. That was when Agate figured he had an opportunity to play Mr. O and run off with his hat! He had guessed Mr. O would go out of his way to get his hat back, he was ALMOST right... O had indeed jumped onto the ring floor. A few random little car driving threw him as he started to focus on his hat.
After a moment of thinking and watching Agate charging after the Hat it... poofed! Just like that! The Hat had found itself back on his head but he had a thought, "Lets just play this out a bit... " He mumbled softly to himself as he awaited to see how Agate would react to the hat poofing, also he was interested in this human looking friend Agate had in tow with him.
Olivine reluctantly handed the hat over. The hat seemed confused and put up a bit of a fight. Most objects were easily disoriented and their sense of self and others were skewed. But, what was Olivine to do, tell some random gem... possibly a homeworld gem no less that the hat doesn't seem to know you. Whatever, if Agate wanted the hat he could have it.
Olivine jumped into a whiley older bumper car that spoke like a southern woman with a drawl about her words. She was very fun and spry for her age. Olivine barely had time to even focus on hitting other riders from all the boisterous noises she was making at the other cars. Only when she stated complaining about Olives driving did she actually try. It was pretty fun, and similar to driving a golf cart.... she did manage to do that once before... for about 4 minutes. At least this time crashing was part of the game.
Suddenly she heard a clammor as a familiar voice yelled out in curses even Olivine wasn't comfortable repeating. She scanned the area her emmisive purple eyes flashing beneath the darkness of her hood. The hat was on the track.... and worst that blue gem Agate was gonna run it over. What in the.... "No you don't... ."
Rather than causing a scene Olive turned her car right for Agate and called to a tubby child in red and white stripe shirt. "Hey Frankie!" the small kid, a child of one of her dayworker pals from work turned to look at her. His mouth lathered in fudgesicle... or at least Olive hoped that's what it was. "Let's ram the blue boy in the blue cart!"
Frankie grinned as did Olive and Agate was rammed from both sides. The pudgy boy laughing, "Got'chu... got'chu... me and Olive Got'chu... hehehehe." Olive smirked and looked to where the hat was. But, it was gone... she couldn't even hear it's voice "Theo... Theodore Maxamillion III?.... what the?" she looked under her car and Agates in a bit of concern
Agate wasn't expecting Opalite to actually allow him to run his hat over, after all it was his most sacred relic. He'd honestly feel bad if he had hit the hat, or somehow managed to smash into O himself. He couldn't imagine actually colliding him with, who knows what could happen! If he was hurt or somehow his gem cracked... But that was ridiculous, that couldn't happen, not to Opalite. However his train of thought was rapidly knocked, literally, off course as the two carts bumped into him on either side. He shook, nearly falling out of his seat and took a moment to assess the situation. He looked to see the hat missing and the stranger by his car's side with another kid.
It took him a moment, a little dazed from their rapid collision, but eventually he burst out laughing as the ride turned off "Hahaha! Well played you two, well done! I wasn't expecting a pincer attack in the slightest." He stepped out of the car, offering a hand to Olivine to help her out. Agate walked out of the car arena, looking around the carnival, "So what do you feel like doing now? I picked the last activity, so I'll let you pick something. Or maybe we go hunt down something else to eat..." He looked around again, aware of a friend's presence but decided against calling him out. He'd play his game and see what O was up to, all while entertaining his new-found friend.
Post by Grand Inquisitor, Mr. O on Mar 16, 2016 19:48:07 GMT
O was watching from just outside of the ring at this point, his hat warm and back in its rightful place, like a crown that adorn his brilliant head. This whole thing... the little carts that were MADE to run into each other seemed so very odd. Its interesting to learn how the Human race does things... even the interaction between humans was interesting to watch. The fact they build a whole area such as this JUST for amusement.. how quaint. He waited until the game seemed to be over, and Agate was pinned by the hooded human and some large little human she knew.
"So what do you feel like doing now? I picked the last activity, so I'll let you pick something. Or maybe we go hunt down something else to eat..." Agate had clearly SEEN O's hat... yet he wasn't going to call for him? Or even say so much as a simple hello? "Im going to have to smack him later..." He thinks to himself as he begins to make his way towards Agate and his hooded friend. Standing just behind Agate, his plan was simple... he shifted himself into the material realm for all to see.. just maybe not Agate.
Mr. O flickers in and out of the real world a few times, his gaze locked onto Olivine. He simple flickered in and out a few more times with his smile on full blast... it might even be a bit more of a creeper image then he had really plan for it... but either way he wasn't going to remain hidden for much longer. When Agate spoke of human food, he couldn't lie, he kinda wanted to find something to eat since it had been some time since he had any human foods.
Olivine was at a loss, where did Theodore go? At this point the game switched off and the chunky little boy she knew ran off cheering for his victories in the game. He seemed so happy Olivine could only help but snort with a little laugh. Agate hopped out of his car and offered a hand. Olivine happily took it standing up and waited for him to address the hat. When he didn't she blinked in confusion
"I mean sure... but, aren't you concerned about your hat... I mean. It... it up and dissapeared... and furthermooooore.... ." Olivine suddenly jolted back as a ghostly visage wearing Theodore seemed to phase in and out of reality behind Agate. Was this a ghost of human lore?! Olivine took another healthy step back and lost her footing as she tumbled back into her cart. Her head snapped back and her neck hit the far car door. Or... rather mock door as it was merely a painted surface. Her gem hit hard against the metal as her neck clanged against the metallic surface. It was no where near enough to crack or harm her gem; but, it did cause her hood to fall back from the whiplash.
There was no question now. Olivine was a gem. And though Agate had yet to ask her name... it was clear she was some sort of Gem. She looks forward and behind Agate with an agaped mouth "Gh... gh.... ghost?.... ." she confusedly muttered clearly unfamiliar with Opalite's... or at least this Opalite's power.
Agate stopped where he was, a little confused on why she was mentioning 'his hat'. It didn't occur to him for a moment she meant Opalite's hat, "Oh! Ya, don't worry about that. It uh... happens all the time. Heh heh." He didn't feel great about lying, but it was all in good fun. He'd reveal the truth here soon, he was sure of it. In fact, it'd be sooner rather than later apparently. For whatever reason she appeared to panic, falling backwards with what sounded like a sickening crack of glass on metal. It was obvious she had hit her gem, and for all he knew she had cracked it. He noticed her hood had fallen down, confirming she was a gem, but he didn't miss a beat. As she was speaking he rushed forward, trying to check her gem for cracks. He have a sigh of relief seeing it wasn't cracked, stepping back and taking a moment to look at her.
She was green indeed, with wonderfully bright purple eyes. Most gems seemed to be pretty one-note color wise but the contrast was nice actually. After spending a little longer than he had intended viewing her he offered to hand again to help her stand back up, "I'm so sorry! I didn't think something like would happen! Alright," he turned his head to look around the pen, "come on out Opalite. I think things may have gone a little too far..." he turned back to her, "It's uh... not a ghost..."

Opalite was watching, waiting for the reaction when, "I mean sure... but, aren't you concerned about your hat... I mean. It... it up and dissapeared... and furthermooooore.... ." He sure got a reaction... one far better then he had hoped! Seeing her jump back and away from Agate caused him to have to stifle his laughter. Only the sound of a possible cracking of a gem made him return to normal rather quickly, "A gem?!" as her hood dropped right away he could tell... so could anyone else really she was no human, but indeed a gem.
Agate had everything covered, springing into action to help the new found gem. "Alright, come on out Opalite. I think things may have gone a little too far..." at that moment he had just about shifted into the real world... but he waited. He just took a few moments to let things sink in... and maybe make Agate sweat a bit more! Until... "Nope! No ghost! Just me, Mr. O! So very nice to meet you!" He had appeared out of a blue blur right behind Agate again.
He stepped closer to this knew gem looking at it a few moment, "My... what kind of gem are you?! You hiding act was very clever... I also would like to thank you for being so kind to my lovely hat!" He said tipping his hat a bit to her as he stood back up to his full height looking at Agate, "Now... what was this I heard about human food?" With his large smile still plastered across his face.
Opalite, who was Opalite. Olivine swore she saw a ghost. as she is helped up she rubs her gem and winces a bit. I'm allright... that did hurt though." after a moment the mysterious spacial manipulating bastard appeared fully causing Olivine to jump ever so lightly. Her brow furrowed in slight frustration. She let out a hearty sigh and looked betwixt the two a moment.
Olivine seemed to crinkle a hand into a fist for a moment as Mr. O states it was /his hat/. She looked to Agate and smiled cheekily spawning her parasol gem weapon in a flash of colored hues and lightly bonk'd Agate on the head. It was just enough to feel; but, not hurt. "You crazy fudder dudder... I mean honestly what were ya thinking huh? Taking Theodore and tossing him like a rag... then ya try ta run em'ova. What in the blue blazes were you thinkin.... ugh.... ."
She then looks to Mr. O, "And YOU... scaring the crap out of me like that..... ! He was the one torturing your hat for what I'm guessing was some joke... yet you scare me?... You lanky overly plummed peacock! If I didn't want to hit Theodore... who I might add was also victimized here... I would bop you too... you fancy smuckidy smuck." Olivine crosses her arms making the parasol vanish and lets out another sigh.
"The name is Apatite.... I'm a gem under White Diamond. Pleasure to meet you both.... and I expect one of you two pranksters to buy me some funnel cake for what you put me through.... as I am an Apatite with an appetite."
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
