"Brandishing the star... Where would I even put the star?" Spider was saying this to herself mostly, and looked down at her clothes. Her light clothes were... Light on fabric. She suppose it wouldn't hurt to have it on her stomach or something but yellow didn't go well with her style. Yellow would like quite good on the gem before her though.
She waved her hand dismissively, "You don't appear to be an easy gem to shatter. The scars on your form speak volumes. Its hard to scar light after all." Whether or not it was a manufacturing error didn't matter. The end result was the same, he was forever changed and different. It sucks that it happened though... Most gems were shattered the second they showed any kind of error, but then again... They also didn't waste any tools if they still had some use in them.
"If you don't openly tell others, then who? Your lady? The best bet is to just tell the others... And then just... Don't force things on them. I am friends with White Diamonds Grand Inquisitor of shenanigans but you don't seem me nagging him to join the light. Gems have to come to that conclusion on their own, like I did, but sometimes... It helps to know where your friends are at."
Demetry chuckles a bit. "Grand Inquisitor of Shenanigans... I like that a lot. It does aptly describe him when he is in a more light hearted mood. But, you do have a point friends should share things with one another... I find it funny you fallow that up by offering yourself as a volunteer. Does that mean the Spider Web Jasper whom detested me earlier has come to enjoy my company." he teases light heatedly.
"But as to the scars on my Gem, Yes... I suppose I am a hard gem to kill." he rubs his chest a moment. The light projection also malformed where gem met skin. "It is not a strange thing for a gem to say they were made.... but, I was not made. I am not the natural embodiment of a gem found in the ground of some colony. I am... well a product of ambition. A better... mindlessly loyal soldier. It is true I was faulty in design... sure I am better than a Jasper." the way he said it made it sound like he wasn't being cocky. He stated it as if it was fact. "But, I was designed incorrectly with a mind of my own. Though... it was bred out of me for a time."
To any familiar with them his uniform expressed the Yellow Diamond Military Academy Special Class. He clearly was kept from gems for a long time. "But... I did get to see many things in my time... many fights. Many gems breaking... so where do I stand in all this? With M'lady... she... she saved me from being a war machine. But, I personally believe there is much wrong with how we gems work. So... I suppose I'm not hard fast loyal like the Morion we met." He stands up and smiles. "I know it's... wrong to say this. But... my life as a gem is inconsequential. I live to protect M'lady... the weak... the down-trotted... and now you." he chuckles, "Though as a Spider I doubt you need it."
"I have never detested you, Demetry. I merely believed that you were annoying." The words came out of her mouth without a filter. She smacked a hand over her moutht the second the words left her mouth. "Errr... I mean... Oh, man. I am so sorry."
She looked at him sheepishly, trying to convey guilt. "I'm sorry." She apologized again. "I don't think you're annoying anymore. It was merely... What I used to think. Now, I kinda think you are wise beyond your ears... Maybe a little too cryptic." One of her hands rubbed the back of her neck, and her teeth nibbled on her lower lip.
Another hand slapped Demetry on the back when he said he was inconsequential. It was a light slap, nothing serious or something to hurt him. "Don't say that. Everyone matters. Even tiny insects... Don't expect me to fight for much, though. I've kinda sworn off fighting."
Demetry couldn't help but smile wistfully at the truth Spider spoke. He even covered his own mouth to hide a laugh he couldn't hold back. There was even a slightly humorous moment where he snorted and blushed for it. he would clear his throat and hope it wouldn't be acknowledged.
When the slap came to the back he seemed a bit surprised and he smiled half heartily. He had hear similar in the past; but, the truth was he had a hard time practicing self love. "Well then... I will just have to fight for you if the moment or need ever arises, and don't worry I too hate the thought of breaking or killing anything." he pauses a moment and seems to smirk.
"So I was annoying huh? Well that is a first... but, I suppose if friends can be blunt like that. And, I do apologizefor being cryptic... I'm afraid it is simply not my place to speak M'ladies affairs... which sadly I am closely tied too as her retainer." he pauses, "I am curious though... I said you did not need hide yourself from me before... yet you still do. Your fangs, your eyes, arms... even your lovely hair all are parts of you and I find none of it disconcerting."
He walks a bit into the open area beneath the canopy, "To put it in human terms I suppose... though unique, you are still fetching to my eyes." he lets a charming smile pass his lips. He chuckles a little as if to let her know this was simply a compliment and not him flirting.
"Okay, my dreads are freaking awesome. Don't ever think I hate my hair." She even tosses her head a little bit, making sure to flip the many dreads over her shoulder. Trying to look like very fabulous woman she saw on TV. Spider even grinned at Demetry and batted her eyes at him before snorting and shaking her head.
"I'm not trying to hide, just... Trying to blend in. Spiders were made to scare. However, ending with the note of you not-flirting-but-totally-flirting-with-me I think its time for me to take my leave." Spider pushed herself off the rock once again, and stretched out her arms above her head and in front of her. She grinned at him, "Oh, and I ever come across your lady, I am SOOOOO gonna tell her you flirt. With everyone."
A wink and then she turned on her heel and started walking the same way she came from.
"If you ever meet M'lady Tabitha I am in deep trouble but not for the reason you think." he chuckles a little bit and decides to be cheeky. "Besides... Ms. Spider if I were to truly flirt with you well.... I think you would know." he waves her off from where he stood.
"Be careful in Greece Spider... and... perhaps when looking for the stars... you should look to the ocean. That's also a means to see stars on Earth." with that Demetry would straighten his jacket and smile. She was a lovely gem indeed. Hopefully she finds all that she seeks here on Earth.
After he was sure you might not be able to hear him, he mumbles to himself "Yes M'lady... no I didn't scare her off." he blushes somewhat. "No I was... no... ugh... yes I ate your sandwich. Yes M'lady... right away." he places two fingers along the bridge of his nose in mild annoyance.
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.
Orginal Opening Plot Here Thread That Changed Everything
Differances Between the Roleplay and the Show

*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
