Besides the beachside shack, Bloodstone had managed to find one other location they enjoyed hanging out at. There was a conveniently placed little auto junkyard of sorts, full of old cars and earth automobiles of shapes and sizes. When Octi had first found it they were fascinated at how the humans had built transportation, and the various parts that could move within them. Using the convenience of shapeshifting to the best of their abilities, they were able to brush up on the various types of cars, trucks and the sort of things that existed for a typical human to get. In fact the vehicles in the junkyard were all now...refurbished! Bloodstone had apparently taken the time to see them restored to their peak condition, and there was quite the large amount. They weren't sure if any of the gems knew about this place except them but I mean hey, it would be cool to show off, right? (Starting in Bloodstone's female form/Octavia for this btw)
Being the collector of junk that she is, Pallasite makes her way to an automobile scrapyard she learned about a few years ago. Rummaging through the corpses of cars, she discovers a spiky-triangle shaped ornament scented in the pheromones of conifers experiencing displeasure. This fine pleases the gem fusion who has been looking for another one of these scented ornaments to add to her collection. While she uncertain of the exact purpose why human produce these ornaments, she theorizes that pheromones induces a calming sensation as humans are prone to aggression when operating automobiles as she had come to learn. As she was making her way to another mile of junked cars, she notices a familiar gem among the more pristine example of cars present at this automobile graveyard. Pallasite slips the conifer scented ornament from her hands onto her neck, wearing it as a necklace as she silently levitates behind Bloodstone. Once within a couple of feet of Bloodstone, she silently observes Bloodstone, studing the gem and noting that Bloodstone has taken on a more femine form. While notable, it wasn't something Pallasite gave much though to as all gems were shape-shifters and the concept of gender only warrented a passing thought to the gem fusion. After a few seconds of silently survey Bloodstone and the nearby surrounds, Pallasite decided that she should make her appearance known to the gem before she unintentionally startles Bloodstone.
"Salutations of sincerity Octavian ally!" sings Pallasite as she suddenly hovers her head right in front of Bloodstone face, with barely a centimeter of space preventing their nose projections from touching each other.
Admittedly, Octavia had gotten a bit distracted as she worked on what she heard was a..Cheverolet Camaro? The names of these automobiles were still confusing to Bloodstone. Either way, she fell back a little but laughed and smiled when she realized it was only Pallasite. She then gave her a hug, because hugs are awesome. "Hiya Pallasite! Wasn't expecting to see you here!" Although the more she thought about it, the fascination for Earth objects that her fusion ally seemed to have made sense for her to drop by and visit. "That's a nice ornament you have there." She gestured to the makeshift necklace that Pallas seemed to have made. Bloodstone leaned back from the car, which was in very good condition given the circumstances. "Do you like what I've done with these Earth automobiles? I tried my best to get everything in pristine condition." She gestured to the automobiles, varying in shape and size and color, all of them looking practically brand new.
Pallasite grins and chimes the sentence "As speak humans, precognition unforeseen variables!"
As Octavia mentions her "necklace", Pallasite eagerly removes the scented piece of cardboard shaped like a Christmas tree and dangles it in front of Octavia to both observe closely and to smell.
"Aware be! Corrugated fiberboard incised and hued into mimicry of conical topiary of quills! Hydrocarbons aromatic detected upon sponge sensory. Prediction: Hydrocarbons interferes biological computation units, inducing placidity." states factually Pallasite as she dangles the air freshener in front of her eye, furrowing her brow as ponders if that might be the device's true purpose or not.
As Octavia mentioned something about the cars, Pallasite snaps her gaze from the air freshener to Octavia leaning on car. Pallas inspects the car with her single eye, studying its every curve and decal.
"Mhmmm... maintenance admirable. Mintiness status upheld. Prodigious most!" speaks Pallasite as she floats as she moves onto the next car, giving it the same rigorous inspection as before as she seems to ignore Octavia.
Octavia chuckled and smiled, smelling the "necklace" that Pallasite was showing. It smelled like..pine trees. Odd choice but hey, it's whatever humans liked. "Indeed..I suppose that makes sense." She shrugged, not understanding how they worked herself. She couldn't help but smile happily as Pallas went over to the next car, taking note of how much she liked the way it looked. "I think a few of the cars might still work, if you want to try to give them a test drive. Or..maybe you can show me some of the items you've found that are interesting?" The cars that Octavia had worked on ranged in both years, size, model, etc. It was quite possible that the ignition was still working, she wasn't sure
Pallasite eye locks onto Octavia, grinning from cheek to cheek the moment Octavia asked about being shown any other items Pallasite may have come across. The gem fusion hovers her way quickly back to Octavia and pulls something from one of her oversize sleeve that most humans would recognize as a road flare.
"Bedazzel! Cylindrical pyrotechnic illumiator! Past humans utilized such devices to brighten local space among blackness before creation of orbs of incandescence were achieved. Much neatness~ Oh oh oh oh! Provide demonstration?! Radiate crimson light of delight!" excitedly speaks Pallasite as she holds up the road flare for Octavia to take.
"Primary ignition required, illustrations instruct proper sequence of activation." Pallasite adds as she points out the three black and white illustration on the side of the flare that indicated how to light the flare by striking one end of the flare with the end of the cap once the sticker is peeled back to expose the striker on top of the cap.
"Oh..I know what this is!" Octavia smiled as she examined the road flare. "That's correct, I do remember that humans use these things to light up the night. Of course there are options without the..pyrotechnics, but this could work." She nodded as she read the illustration on the side "I see..if you don't mind Pallas, since it's getting somewhat dark, I'll go ahead and light this" Octavia hummed as she followed the instructions carefully, peeling the sticker back to expose the striker on the top of the cap before striking the cap with the end of the flare. She giggled as the flare lit up the surrounding area, illuminating the junkyard and adding shadows to the heaps of...well...junk
Pallasite claps her her hands as she wears a goofy smile on her, her eye watching the dancing of shadows as the light of the road flare waxed and waned.
"Delightful observance correct? Collected additional samples if illumination further is necessitated." asks Pallasite, appearing pleased with the frizzle and hiss of crimson light the road flare provided.
"Mhmm... inquiry of purpose of rejuvenation of wagons automatic? Organizing to pilot craft for self amusement or preserving the conduits of transportation for time lasting?" inquires Pallasite as her attention is once more on the cars that Octiva seemed to have restored, a feat Pallasite finds quite impressive considering that she was originally a warrior caste gem as far as she was aware.
Octavia smiled happily, glad to see Pallasite at least entertained if nothing else by the road flare. "I'll know if I need to use more of these, but thank you" She nodded to Pallas as they looked around at the cars "Well see..that's the thing. I'm not sure. At the very least I want to preserve these, because I had gotten bored and needed something to do here on Earth" Bloodstone blushed a little but continued explaining "On another note, however, I wanted to study these and even.. pilot..a few of these on my own" She smiled happily "It's honestly late enough that I could take you out and show you how one of these worked. How does that sound?" It was just an idea, but Octavia hadn't had fun like this in awhile and.it could be interesting
Pallasite considers Octavia's generous offer as she examines a yellow convertible car of sorts. Pallas nods her head approvingly, then levitates herself over by Octavia's side.
"Proposal alluring. Accepting... opportunity opportune to observe mechanisms leading to functionalist in use. Select wagon automatic to pilot. Occupying position of pilot cooperative self will upon selection. Recommendation of craft enabling ensurest survivibility. Vehicle incidents most significant source of fatalities among native organics." states Pallasite as she scaning the various cars that Octavia has out on display.
Pallasite's single eye darts from car to car, trying to predict which which car Octavia will take her out in based on how functional the car appears to be and the protection it would offer should they get into a collision. After, safety first.
"I know, I'm well aware of that" Octavia nodded, showing she was at least aware of the danger that these vehicles had with the humans. She looked around the junkyard before smiling as she selected the car that seemed to work well. "The car before you is a Ferrari 308 model produced in the Earth year of 1981. The car possesses a 2.9 Liter V8 type engine with a five speed transmission, and it has been restored to perfect working condition by yours truly." Octavia beamed as she showed off the little red car to Pallasite, opening the door so she could look at the interior, leather seats having been cleaned off as Octi realized something "In all honesty, I don't remember how I knew all that. It just...came to me."

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
