Hunter stayed quiet he knew the pros and cons of working with humans through the various history books Octavain had. But to work with what history calls the 'Scum of the Earth' sounded like a bad idea all around. When Octavain Politely declined Hunter walks next to him. "I have to side with Octavain on this one. A famious person once said 'If you do not learn from History you are doomed to repeat it' and history has shone humanity adapting. You use them as meatshelds they will adapt and find a way to be a meat cleaver instead. If Humans adapt to fighting us then Homeworld, or other gem controled worlds are in danger. They are pone to wars thus this race is willing to fight for what they believe in. We need to tread lightly with them. One spark and they will turn on EVERY gem even the Diamonds themselves." He looks to Octavain and nods to him. "I am sorry if this isn't the way you wanted things to end up. but using humanity against the gems will only result in them turning against ALL gems."
The Smoky Quartz stood there with his drink in his hand in silence Then slowly nodded
"I am a bit... dissapointed Bloodstone. I am not angry... just... sad..."
Morion walked to his chair with a sigh then sat down
"But I can understand... your independence is important for you. And your moral conscience..."
The Gem's voice was a bit bitter tho
"But you know my friend... it doesn't matter. The world is full with criminals, thieves and liars. This is a fact that will remain a fact no mater if you accept my offer or not. Humanity is like a beautiful rock! Thats the surface. But turn it up and you will find the maggots and crawling and slithering, disgusting things on the wet, rotten leaves under it! The true face of these vermins! Oh and please don't forget the Crystal Gem rebels will not let you keep your freedom. You know that, right? Lets pretend for a moment, the Crystal Gems have a chance to win, and have won this war, so they are the rulers of Earth now and you? There will be questions... uncomfortable ones, like, I dont know... why you didn't fight for their cause and precious humans? for example. What will you tell them? While they fought, died and suffered for the humans and their victory, you? I wanted to be independent and have my solitude and and and..."
The Smoky Quartz snorted
"Good luck with that Bloodstone!"
He shook his head after a sip from his drink
"There is a war out there.. you can hide from the truth, you can hide from the War, but you can'thide from the consequences! And nor from Humanity."
Morion smiled a bit
"But if this is your choice... as I said, I'm not angry... just sad. Sad and a bit dissapointed. I will not kick you out... I've invited you for a party! So please enjoy all the fruits of my success! After all, without you we wouldn't be here...!"
The Smoky Quartz winked, then laughed
"Hunter... If you honestly belive the Crystal Gems will not drag the Humans in to this War, I have a nasty surprise for you! When Rose Quartz started this Rebellion, she doomed this planet and Humanity. There are... or at least will be Humans that are brave enough to fight and die side by side with their protectors... and well, there is the rest. The majority, the Humans who will realise or already realised, there will be a wining side. And wants to be on that side. The side with the superior technology, intergalactic Empire... So what? They lose there home planet, but in their may-fly long life that is basically nothing. As I said, give them pretty baubles, human “pearls”, nice things... "
"Humans against Humans, Gems against Gems... long live Rose Quartz, the worst thing that could have happend with Earth. Cheers!"
Octavian smiled as he listened to Hunter, glad that despite his homeworld ties he was able to know what was senseable. "Thank you Hunter, that does mean alot" He patted him on the shoulder as he turned his attention back to Morion "And as for you, I suppose I'll stay. I do feel like I enjoy our little discussions. And with the gems, what would I tell them? I'd tell them that I simply kept myself up and fought for what I knew was right. In this case I think it's obvious what it is, yes?" Bloodstone smirked and smiled "As for your maggots, you sir refuse to change at all. It seems that you can never escape your own fate, being in the shadows, never willing to step into the limelight. Although I can sense that whenever you do, you don't hold back. Am I right?" He raised his glass and clinked it against Morions "To a budding rivalry between you and I, and let's not kill each other unless it's...absolutely necessary"

Hunter smiles when Octavian patted him on the shoulder. Morion didn't seem as that upset about the stuff that was said. This made Hunter feel really uncomfortable. "You just contradict yourself here. You said they would sell they own grandmother. This shows they have no Loyalty. Only their own goals leading there own path. Gems terraform earth to be uninhabitable to humans and they will revolt with weapons that not only can harm gems. but shatter them without even batting an eye." He kept quiet after that as he felt out of place here. When they raised there glass he did the same unsure what the gesture was about. "Um. i know you two go back so im just going to let you two talk." He goes back to the main room and watches the party from the second floor. He pulls out his notepad and made notes about what just happened before putting it away.
"You can't make an omelette without ruthlessly crushing dozens of eggs beneath your steel boot and then publicly disemboweling the chickens that laid them as a warning to others..."
Morion gigled a bit with a nod, and clinked his glass against Bloodstone's
"As I promissed... If we ever need to fight, I will give you quick and painless shattering and won't let anyone to use you as a science project or power source"
The Smoky Quartz nodded
"Hunter, please... stay! Enjoy the food! And you are right... they have weapons, inferior weapons compared to our technology, but powerful non the less! Good thing we have legions of expendable dumb rubies..."
Morion smiled a bit
"I'm sure, the humans will gladly accept the Diamond's "mercy"! While they will never replace our pretty Pearls, they could fill a smimilar role, the new fashion! Own your very own Human pet! Or human reserves... peting zoo? For their servitude they could explore the universe on their master's side. Its a fair trade... this reminds me, I hope you stay for the fight! We have a nice little Arena in the basement. Several of my humans will fight tonight for our entertainment! And for fame, glory and money... but mostly for our amusment! Willingy If may I add.... naked, without a weapon! But we could toss in a knife or a broken bottle if you want... "
Bloodstone shook his head and sighed as he tried some of the food, smiling a little as he chewed "I will admit though, the chefs you have here are fantastic at their job" Octi wiped his mouth off and sighed as he watched Hunter walk off "Do excuse him, he's not used to stuff like this but he's still loyal no matter what. He's a good friend." He smiled a little before turning back to Morion "I'm...not sure. That does sound tempting but frankly, I don't see any point fighting without clothes on. It just seems indecent. At the very least you could have some slave or fighter outfit on them." Octi shrugged "Just a suggestion. Anyways, what shall we do now since it's obvious you and I can't work together. Are we going to be running into each other at random points now or...what shall we do?" He asked in between bites
"Thank you. I am a chef myself... its a hobby of mine, but this human is an artist!"
Morion nodded Watched Hunter as he departs
"I know his type... I am not angry with him. And about his loyality...? I am sure, he is loyal to our Diamond. He is just alone and scared... lost on Earth. This misrable Planet is a horrible Prison, thank to Rose Quartz and her ilk!"
The smoky Quartz tasted some of the foods too
"Humans are animals Bloodstone... but they hide it, even from themselfs, hiding behind the clothes of civilisation. But deep inside? They crave for an excuse to be naked and tear out each other's throats!"
But the Jasper's question was good What they will do now? What should they do?
"We can't work together...? I'm sad to hear this. I'm honestly belived we could. But if you feel this way... there is no point to force any joint work. We will meet again... and you are always welcome here! And your friends... or in the Derelict. Hunter would love that old ship! At least I think he would. But now? I think it would be the best... for you at least, to join Hunter. Don't leave him alone. He is already alone on this planet, without any hope to travel the stars. As I said, I know his kind... they are fragile Gems, desperately needs a Quartz Knight, a Guardian. I think he needs you Bloodstone..."
"I never said we couldn't work together, but in terms of a project like this, I don't want to find myself tied with the bad side of the humans. No offense. But if I ever need to work with you in..other situations, I'll wait and see what happens. But don't worry, I intend on making sure to stick with Hunter. At the very least, he can't do as much as I can in combat, so I might as well act as protector." BLoodstone stood and bowed to Morion, shaking his hand and smiling "I've been here for a couple of hours anyway, so I believe my time has come to an end. I appreciate your hospitality but I must return home." He walked down the stairs, looking back up at the Smokey Quartz "I'll see you next time" He smirked before walking outside, looking for Hunter

Hunter was sitting on the stairs writing down some notes. He really didn't care much for the party that was going on. Two guards approached him and began speaking Spanish. He looks up at them. "Um...im sorry what did you say?" He stands up with a confused look. They continue to speak in spanish and try to take away the notepad. He pulls it away from them trying his best not to harm the humans. "Back off. Im a guest of the guy who pays you." Its at this time Octavain came outside. He blinks next to Octavain. "Do you understand what they are saying?" The guards quickly ran up the stairs and spoke in spanish demanding the notepad.
"I don't need to understand Spanish" Octavian sighed as he tucked the notepad away "I believe given the circumstances, they don't want you to take any notes. Just follow my lead" Octi talked to the guards, in Spanish actually, telling them that Hunter would not take any notes and we would not tell the police, basically anything they wanted to be comfortable. "There we go...that should be better." Bloodstone smiled as he looked back over at Hunter and sat down on the stairs "So, Morion's promised not to kill me unless we're basically in a do or die situation, he doesn't want to see me used as an experiment or tortured by Homeworld. I suppose that's good, right?" He shrugged

The guards left them alone but kept an eye on them from a distance. Hunter sits down next to Octavain. He listens to the deal but doesn't answer him right away. "I guess thats a good thing. So are we heading home. I dont care much for parties like this. its just....odd to me. The food looks nice but. i just felt so out of place." He sighs and looks at his feet. "His ideas....I just dont know how i feel about him continuing on with such a thing." He notices the limo driver approach them. "I guess thats our ride home." He stands up and heads back to the limo. He layed in one of the longer seats on the way home as he mulled things over in his mind.
"I suppose we are heading home. That's alright, I understand." Octavian smiled and sighed "I haven't agreed with Morion's views the whole time I've known him, and he's quite the loyalist to homeworld. I don't know if we can take him down on our own but..we can keep an eye on him" He stood as they walked into the limo, getting comfortable as he watched Empire City disappear into the distance. Octi couldn't help but wonder how he and Hunter were going to hold up. It was obvious that, for now at least, the two of them could stay independent even if they didn't agree with..certain loyalists. No matter what, the next few weeks were going to be interesting, that's a fact
Light: nah, those are facts my friend

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
