"Haha... I have told you! Do not deny it any longer! You are, son, is a predator! A bloodthirsty monster. A butcher!"
Silence! I command you!
"You can't even do what a human could! And you call yourself superior being? The Spider Jasper was right? They are better?"
SHUT UP! I can do this! I... I.... I only need more time! Morion growled a little, to silence the Voice in his head Like a predator, the panther, low voice from his throat Okay, you can do this Morion! The humans CAN'T be better than Gems! Even the lowliest of the Humans can heal! You saw it! A kiss, and everything is okay. Everything is fine! No more crying no more pain. You can do it! He bited his lips again, and leaned forward, his lips almost tuched Demetry's The he reallized He talked? Silent whisper escapes Morion's lips, gently caressing with his breath the other Gem's chin
Even though he was in pain. Even though he had light fluids all over his body he could still feel his cheeks turning a deep amber as Morion moved in to kiss his lips. Demetry was flabbergasted, he had no idea what to do in this situation. Clearly his voice wasn't working and Morion was growling of all things. The kiss stopped just short of Demetry's lips and he just looked at Morion with flushed face. Demetry could feel the soft subtle warm wisps of air on his chin and he tried to speak again only after Morion said his name.
"Uhh... h-hey there... Morion... umm why, why are you kissing me?" he seemed befuddled. Normally his appearance attracted human woman and only the occasional gem. But, here in front of him a gem loyalist... a Morion no less was kissing him. A human form of showing compassion at that. "I uhh.. ahem.. oww... ."
he would use his one hand and try to position himself against the wall so he could look at his love interest, or at least that's how it seemed, proper. He also finally got to see how mangled he was. eight holes in his sides, broken ribs, missing arm, butchered foot, nearly cut in half, gutted... and he couldn't feel the left side of his face. "Ohh man... I've looked better." he choke-ingly produced a pained laugh. "Umm, th... thank you for umm saving me I guess... ." he still wasn't sure if it was Morion who gutted him... or why.
The Smoky Quartz started to become a Rose Quartz^^ Well, at least his cheeks as he blushed a little, without realizing it
"I was... uhm... "
He swallowed a little
"Just... tried to help! The humans... uhm... the healing of... the...
His voice slowly died, the cave's silence stoled it He just knelt there, still face to face with Demetry, his grey long hair hiding their faces It took some time to find his voice But he didn't moved
"I... I have seen the humans can heal with a kiss. One kiss is enough to ease the pain, to heal... to... uhm... and you were... ehm... are in a very bad shape. I just tought... maybe... maybe... and Gems are better than humans and all...
As Morion finished speaking Demetry began to laugh. It hurt so much to laugh; but, he couldn't help it. He began to cry from the pain it caused and even snorted some during. His flushed face stayed about him and he spoke in a low raspy pained voice.
"You tried to give me the Princess kiss... haha, oww oww... healing kisses are a thing of myth and lore. For human cartoon fantasy. Or for little babes who seek comfort of their Mother. hahahaha.. oww.. ow." he pauses coughing. It was nice to have someone worry over him like this... someone that was not his Lady. "Here I thought you were kissing me because you thought I was dying as some sort of romantic gesture.... not that I would mind. You just," he pauses "Just don't seem the type to value another in that way."
Demetry paused taking the moment to inform M'lady Tabitha he was alright telepathically. He knew she would have been worried seeing his vision black out. It was lucky he did as she was all ready making her way to the mountains. Relieved she said she would return to the safe house as Demetry requested.
"So... Morion... I think it's about time I poofed... I can barely hold myself together here... it hurts so bad... ha... ah-ha." Demetry tries to sound reassuring even a bit comical' but, he seemed to be in an awful straight. "Think you could... do me a solid... and watch over my gem for a couple days.... but, umm... if you need to poof too I understand. You look like you seen better days aye handsome." he chuckles, still a flirt even now.
Now he was a complete Rose Quartz, red from the embarrassment He was laughing! At him This was... embarrassing He sat there... can't even blink (even if he wanted to) The whole situation was... was...
He almost whimpered
Murmured to himself It was awkward to admit but the truth was:
"I... I tough you were dying! Tried to help... "
But the romentic gesture thing? He was afraid sure... Afraid to lose him? With a little cough he tried to change the subject, turning his head and eyes away, let his hair to hide his shame, his crimson face
"I... I am not the monster everbody thinks!" "No you are worse than that..."
The voice gigled in his head
"You are a great fighter... you deserved the rest. Don't worry... I will protect you"
For some unexplained reason he wanted to looks cool and macho, maybe thanks to the "handsome" compliment^^
"This? This is just a scratch. Unlike you, I still have all of my limbs..."
Rising his hand, to show it Unfortunatly it was still covered with the dried light liquid (Demetry's "blood") He quickly hid it behind his back
Demetry knew he was being nice letting him the chance to recover firs despite his own injuries. Maybe, just maybe he misjudged Morion a bit. He actually felt bad for laughing at the situation now. "Okay, okay I'm sorry Morion I won't laugh again... just. Gotta admit it was kinda funny."
Demetry blinked wide eye'd as he was called princess of all things. He had spent enough time on Earth to know that was a feminine thing and though he had no gender it was a bit shocking to the system. Was... was Morion actually flirting with him? That was a first for Demetry... at least from a gem. "Ahem, yeah... don't c-call me that Morion... like.. like ever. Umm, on that note... my cheeks feel hotter then my nub of an arm... so yeah.. toodles Mory."
Demetry faded out in a cascade of yellow light and his manufactured, tortured gem fell to the ground. If Morion were to inspect the gem closely it almost looked like parts of other gems had been shoved into it and melted. The cut was all kinds of wrong because of it as well. The fact he even lived would warrant years of study alone.
Meanwhile Demetry tried to recover as quickly as he could. The sanctum of his gem was warm and he had not been there for a long while. He felt it would take weeks to fix himself without the waters of Rose Quartz's bath... but, he knew not to ask Morion to take him there. However, he didn't like the idea of worrying Lady Tabitha... or oddly enough Morion.. by taking to long. Still flustered over that Princess comment he rushed the process taking 2 days instead of weeks ((feel free to tell me what Morion does for 2 days hehe))
After he was finally recovered his gem rose in the air and a silhouette of yellow light is formed. The shape seemed to conform to a large hulking jasper then shrunk to the familiar shape of Demetry... but, then it altered again not changing in height; but, waves of hair and a skinny feminine frame was formed. /Her/ bodice was skinny in ways humans could not be at the waist and her hips and bust shapely. She looked like.... a Princess?!?!
Demetry yawned and stretched his arms out looking about a bit sluggishly. "There we go much better. Hey Morion!... ohh there you are."
After Demetry has disappeared Morion picked the Jasper's Gem up
"It worked, you stupid Gem!"
He mumbled He heald him^^ The kiss worked! Well at leats in Morion's no-so-stable mind anyhow He poked the stone
Without realizing, he started gently caressing the tortured Gem Actually it was a rather intimate thing, to hold someone's Gem, someone true self, the core of the being... The other Gem is so vulnerable in this state Morion could bubble him, or just close his fist, to crack, to shatter the essence of the other! He was a killer, a monster Yet... Yet the Voice was strangely silent now... maybe Demetry's presence calmed down the rageing storm inside his mind and soul But Morion realized eventually, how intimate the whole situation was and blushed It rquired a great - impossibly great - trust from Demetry to retreat inside his Gem while knowing Morion is... well... Morion. He didn't understand How could Demetry trust in him?
"I will protect you..."
He whispered and puted the Gem down gently in a little heap of sand, near to the warmth of the campfire It was a strange Gem, tortured, shoved, melted, all the wrong cuts... He was so... ...so... ...unique Yet fully functional, sane and in a sense, beautifull During the days Morion guarded the cave, meditate, and watched the Gem He tired to humm one or two tunes, but without his guitar it wasn't te same When Demetry refromed, Morion was sitting outside, watching the night sky, te start... but russhed in wen noticed the light Then paniced^^
"Who are you and what have you done with Demetry's Gem?!"
The freaked out Morion looked around nervously, searching for his... ward
Demetry was unaware of what happened while gem'd or how it helped Morion. But, he did see the strange expression on his face upon meeting him again. Demetry wasn't sure why he was looking at her like that and when asked who he was the confused, now feminine looking gem blinked. She placed a hand on her hip and seemed to chuckle in that same charming way Demetry did with eyes half shut. "Mory it's just me... I know I don't have feathers or my jacket on... but come on. Was I really asleep /that/ long. I even felt like I rushed my regeneration so you wouldn't have to worry."
A thin slender finger tapped at the malformed gem lying above her amble bosom. The wide tracks of land really meaning little to gems; but, certainly had a human allure to them. "See, lookie here Mory, same old Owhyee Jasper." she chuckled and then realized something. Did she actually tell Morion she took on the name Demetry?... when did she do that. That was something she normally wouldn't tell a Homeworld gem. Most of them would never understand. Wierd... .
Demetry scratched her cheek in befuddlement still not realizing she had changed so drastically while regenerating. Her eyes were large and serene with star shaped designs inside. Her height much the same; but, weight distribution was all kinds of off. Her hair was full and wavy. Her uniform was still that of a high ranking Yellow Diamonds Special Class Academy student. All and all she had the same kind hearted, flirtatious, charasmatic demeanor. With an edge of stalwart knight thrown in somewhere
Don't panic Morion! You can crush this witch if she tries to steal Demetry! The Quartz Soldier never told his name of curse But Morion was a Spy and had access to White Diamon's archives... and Lady Tabitha was an influental Gem back at home Actually Morion never realized Demetry IS a name, he always tought it is a code name for the Quartz's missions, or a disguise to fool other beings. He had thousand names and thousand faces himself... And for some reason, the "Owhyee Jasper" felt so... so... He can't really put his finger on it why, but it felt right to call him on a unique code name. The code name Demetry made Demetry special (for Morion^^ ) Or it was just subconscious jealousy or honor... after all, Morion don't even have an ellaborate face, while Demetry is a charming devil. He deserved a (code) name!
"The same old Owhyee Jasper..."
He was unsure Morion was a little hesitant to belive this This girl was so.. so... different
"It is... really you?"
He bited his lips nervously, while his cheeks started to betray him with their color
"Gack... ." Demetry coughed and flustered. Cheeks turning amber and she walked over punching Morion in the shoulder like a bro. "Mory! I said don't call me that! I'm not a Princess.... and just cause you kissed me on my forehead doesn't mean I'm gonna let you get away with that. I'm no Morion assassin but, you saw what I /can/ do out there so don't make me have to sluu... slug." she pauses looking at her hand as a voice talks to her from inside her head. The voice was squealing away and teasing him with her cute taunts.
"Ohh no... nonono, not again." Demetry runs over to a small pool of half melted ice water near the makeshift fire. She began pulling on her cheeks, checking her eyes and gum-line. She then cupped her bosom and placed a hand on her waist trailing it to her bottom. She then sit's on her legs and slumps. "Of friggin course... I'm her again!... Geez... what is wrong with you... you stupid gem." she hits her chest in annoyance and looks to Morion.
"You... not a word... not a single word got it." she stands up blushing and realizing how off balance she was. "Ohhh great... how did this body move again... umm. was it.. ?" she slowly danced elegantly in place like a form of ballet that shifted into a more dynamic hip hop style. She smirked some... "Ah, that was it... man these things are heavy... what an inefficient design.... Shut up Lady Tabitha I can hear you!.... no I am not." she blushes sighing as Lady Tabitha pokes fun at him
It was more of an ironic "ouch" than a real one He rubbed his shoudler like it was a real punch^^
"But it fits you Princess... and that kiss ... well two kisses if you count the one you almost got on your ... soft... lips... uhm..."
He coughed after an awkward silence Morion watched the other Quartz as he rushed to the pool Nice new body, cute and delicate like a flower... like an orchid. He let his eyes follow the movement of Demetry's hands
"It is not that bad..."
He tried to comfort him, steping closer Then realized the pool That "mirrorr" was an anathema for him, Morion quickly looked away, stumbled back, almost in to the fire, gasping
"DoN't CaLL mE pRinCesS!" Demetry huffed angrily as she turned to give Morion a stern looking at. But, the anger almost instantly subsided as if he truly was not that upset. The new look on the fair featured gem was one of concern. "Mory? Mory you okay?" she walked over placing a delicate hand on your shoulder tipping your chin to look at her directly. She looked at your lacking features and frowned some as they were hard to read emotion from.
"What's wrong Mory, talk to me." Demetry clearly forgot about his new form... and spacial awarness as his chest was touching yours. Clearly not a perverted or intentional act by any means. "Listen Mory... I know your an assasin and secrecy is key... I know you likely have spent who knows how many nights alone with nothing but your mind... and a target to kill."
Demetry takes a step back crossing her arms under her bust. "But look, this isn't Homeworld... orders don't come frequent here and we can't just expect all our past issues to be resolved like that. I can see it in the way you treat yourself... in how you talk about yourself and in a way you mirror myself before I met Lady Musgravite... so... just talk to me.... ."
she pauses and looks at you a bit more seriously. "Does this have to do with why you gutted me to near death out there in the snow?" apparently she knew this whole time. She knew and still treated you like a friend. She knew and trusted you to protect her.
*He stumbled in hiw own legs, and crawled back to the wall, panting
"Everything is... is okay" "Liar..."
The Voice in his head returned
"Then again, all monsters are liars by default... so don't worry. You are just yourself."
SHUT UP He tried to focus on Demetry He...she... the other Qartz was talking
"Yes.. solitude is perfect for the job..."
His voice was hoarse
"No. No it is not our home! Not the Homeworld! This is a Diamond forsaken cursed, doomed Planet!!!
The silence that followed Demitry's just question was deep like the space between this Galaxy and the Homeword's one He involuntarily summoned back his mask, to hide most of his face, joust the silver eyes remained Morion swallowed a little, and slowly noded
"You poor gem... I... I can't believe I didn't see it before now." Demetry's eyes teared up and you have a feeling even if she was herself your situation would have the same effect on her. She moved over and sat next to you and reached out to her side grabbing her stained jacket and her collection of bird feathers. "You know Morion.... there was a time in my life where I didn't have a purpose. You see... I was bred in a lab... I was meant to do one thing and do it well. And, you know what I did. I was proud of it too. I was a fighter... a tactician. Calm, cool... collected. But, I was hollow."
"One day I started calling myself a monster... I hated myself. I still do in some ways. I was assigned to M'lady Musgravite and due to unforeseen circumstances she felt obligated to release me from duty when the kindergarten fell. I was there... and I did nothing to prevent it... I did what I was meant to and protected M'lady.... but... but I think M'lady took what happened that night so to heart she couldn't bare looking at me anymore. So... she told me to leave." Demetry paused.
"I had nothing to fall back on... I felt like I rather die then loose all direction. We... we gems are bred to be loyal and obedient... but, sometimes our jobs tax us. Lady Musgravite took me back in.... when, I refused to leave her and asked her to kill me rather then send me away. It was an impossible place I put her in... but, I was desperate." she sighs,
"Since then... I have found myself... this jacket, my name, the feathers... little parts of me. It's weird to say this... but, I'm sad this jacket is ruined... I'm sad I lost some feathers in that battle. Individuality feels like a sickness... this Mudball was... confusing to me. But, I have come to understand that this world has helped me fill that hollow void I felt... allowed me the time to become... someone rather than just something. I still serve loyally to M'lady Musgravite... but, the monster I was... am... I just, I've accepted it as part of me. Then, then I changed it... it's hard finding that inner peace... but, Mory."
she places a hand on your knee, "Mory if it helps at all... I have all ready forgiven you for nearly killing me. I don't see anything about you I don't like. I just think your... troubled. As... a reflection of you in many ways... I promise you. You will get better, don't give up... don't give in... and most of all get out of your own head once in awhile. Allow yourself to see yourself in another's eyes... because your own eyes are always the most harsh."
He barked with a sharp voice And immediately regreted it
"Sorry... I... I am so sorry... I didn't mean to..."
Morion nervously runs his fingers through his hair with both hands, grabbed it a little
"Look, I am okay. Really!" "Of curse you are! You are just a Monster, with me in your head, and you fear mirrorrs... to see your own emptiness"
SHUT UP! Shut up damn you! He grabed his inner voice neck, to strangle her But in reality, his strong hands were around Demetry's delicate neck Only with a milisecond, with a feral growl; even his silver eyes turned to cat like "beast eyes" without any mercy or care But the moment passed and the sanity returned The Voice in his head was laughing Morion tried to salvage the situation, caressing the Gems neck... but deep inside he know... it is futile
"Its a lie..."
Shut up! Please... please... please....
"F-forgive me... I... I didn't... I... "He wooooont...."
He looked away Tried to ignore the Voice in his head
"In the eyes... In the other's eyes... i see... nothing. Myself. The nothing.
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
