"Well no, but admittedly I haven't heard from Hunter in awhile. I'm sure he's doing alright though. Also I did miss you a tiny bit in all honesty." She giggled and smiled before sighing "I wanted to talk to you about the..quartz you sent to me, Joseph. I want to help his son but you and I both know I don't have any healing powers, unfortunately." Octavia pouted but clearly looked sad as she leaned against the wall "Did you send him to me on purpose, or did he just come on his own accord after you talked about me with him? Because he seemed to know quite a bit about the human history of Bloodstone" She looked up at the Smoky Quartz, not sure what to do
"I didn't sent anybody to you Bloodstone... as per our agreement. I repsects your desire of solitudte and not taking a side... Pearl? Bring us some drinks please. thank you." "Yes M'lord..."
The Smoky Quartz sent his butler away, to bring some refreshments. The human returned with some orange juice for Octavia
"As I said... Humans are ingenious. Everything that Human Quartz have done, was all of his idea! Actually I am proud of him. It is nice to know, I was right to name him a Quartz, not an expendable dumb Ruby...."
The Assassin sipped from his drink
"You know.. Humans associate "powers" to certain stones. It is clear, humanity was shaped by the Gem Empire's presence on their planet. This was one of the main reasons to gather my own humans! It is quite possible, Humans and Gems worked together in the past... or Humans served the Gems, even worshipped us. Worth a try. And I was right..."
"Anyhow, to be honest, I am not familar with your powers... and the whole experiment-theory is complicating the situation. If it is true of course. It is quite possible, the Experiment robbed you from your healing powers, and replaced it with the Berserker Mode-thing."
"Fair enough, but still...you at least told him about my prescence" Octavia sighed and smiled, nodding at the butler as she sipped from the Orange Juice before leaning against the wall "I suppose that does make sense. Your humans are quite obedient, I'll give you that" She stood up, still sipping from the glass "But either way, I wasn't sure what to tell Joseph. I said I would at least see what I could do." Octi sighed "I'm afraid I might have to agree with you..and there's no way I can do this blood transfusion that I know humans are capable of due to the whole...light thing and all" She laughed nervously before looking up at Morion "Is there anyway you can help?"
"We are well organized here my dear Heliotrope Knight! They deserved to know about our allies and our enemies. I have no doubts, they would served me without these informations... but they can do it better with armed not only guns, but knowledge! Nothing seriuos really... just names. And let them figure out the rest. "
"You didn't know what to tell? Tell him the truth maybe?
The Assassin suggested politely
"You are not a Crystal Gem yet to lie to the humans about the situation, ignore them, or... you know, generally decidte things behind their backs"
He sipped from his glass
"Humans are quite fragile and weak... sorry my dear Bloodstone, but they can't even survive a blood transfusion if the blood is not from the right type. One of my human Peridot explained my the whole blood-type thing. I think receiving Alien blood would kill a Human... uhm... by the way, why do you want donate your blood to one?"
"I don't know, okay? I just want to help somehow!" Octavia said in a combination of frustration and disappointment "I know that I could tell him the truth but I just...ugh!" She lashed out and hit the punching bag to dispel a little bit of rage as she sighed and looked over to Morion "I can try to help you out if you want but I just want to try and figure out something. Maybe I can try to get an organ or something? Do you have any ideas?" She blushed and sighed "I'm sorry if I'm acting bad or in confusion but I just want to help this kid. Even if it's to one of your Quartzs, they deserve to be helped"
"But my dear Bloodstone... you cant help him. And this is bothering you, am I right? You are not a healer...."
The Smoky Quartz nodded
"Your anger and fustration is understandable..."
Moiron sipped from his drink "Hmm... yes, as I said, my Human Peridots explained to me how the human body is working. As an Infiltrator... and Assassin I am familiar with several species' biology and anatomy. To be efficient. So I have anatomized some human corpses. Thanks to Yellow Peridot, we had many. And in our business death is common... but no vivisectation, I swear!"
The Gem nodded
"They have several major organs... and they are could be replaced. That kid needs a new liver. But humans are... a strange species. Remeber the things I said about money and power? They would sooner give a liver to a dying, powerful, rich old man, than a poor sick child. And we are the bad guys! The kid is somewhere at the end of their transpalntation list."
Octavia sighed and nodded "Still..I just...ugh...can't you influence this somehow? Anything?" She looked up at her Smokey Quartz ally "Even if he was at the end of the list, can't we..I don't know...pull some metaphorical strings? You have all the bloody money that you can get, CANT YOU DO ANYTHING?!" Octi screamed before punching the nearby punching bag again "WHY THE HELL CANT THIS WORLD BE FAIR? I DONT CARE ABOUT SIDES ANYMORE, I DONT CARE I JUST WANT EQUAL CRAP!!!" Octavia screamed, stomping on the floor before leaving an indentation from her hand in the wall "I'm...sorry...I just...ugh..." She sat down on the ground, more frustrated than ever "Why does this have to happen to me?"
The Smoky Quartz watched the outburst in silence Then sipped from his drink
"I have seen many worlds my dear Bloodstone Jasper! Many civilizations. There is one universal truth: Life is NOT fair!"
He shook his head
"There is no such things as "equality" or "justice" or "mercy" Take the universe and grind it down to the finest powder and sieve it through the finest sieve and then show me one atom of justice, one molecule of mercy. and yet... and yet you act as if there is some ideal order in the world, as if there is some... some rightness in the universe by which it may be judged. Fascinating, really.”
Morion walked to Octavia, looked down to her
"I never said I can't do anything. Naturally I can. My Quartz just only need to ask. But for some reason, he asked you, not me for help. You know why? Because I am his Boss, like him a "criminal", a killer, a manipulator... a bad guy, a dark god. I am Loki. You? You my dear Bloodstone is his Thor. The hero. The good guy. And My Quartz, like all Humans deep in their hearts, and like you, still belives in these things... It would be cruel to rob him from his faith in the world, wouldn't it? "
"I don't give a piece of crap about what you've seen!" Octavia yelled right in Morion's face before calming down "let me give you an example I read from the comic books these humans have. Have you ever seen one? It's a paper book of sorts that allows the humans to read about the heroes they believe in. There are moments where hero has to work together with a villain whether they want to or not. Thor had to work with Loki in both comics and Norse mythology, trust me, I did my research." She looked up at him "He would not have to know that I asked for your assistance. All I ask is that you simply put in some...encouragement, to get his son at the top of the list"
“What good's a god who gives you everything you want?”
"I am familiar with the comic books, thank you."
The Smoky Quartz nodded
"Encouragement? Well, my dear Bloodstone Jasper... you are quite flexible, when you need to. Morals, rules and such things. They are bendable, like your gender it seems..."
The Assassin Gem gigled a bit, then sipped from his drink "As I said before, yes, I can help... this situation is not that terrifyingly complicated. Right words whispered in the right ears. A little grease to the old cogs.. pulling some metaphorical strings...."
"Fine my dear Heliotrope Knight, fine. I will help. After all, You need to believe in things that aren't true. How else can they become?”
"I heard that." Octavia smirks and rolls her eyes "I apologize, you know how I am when my temper gets..a bit above my control." She sighed and calmed down, taking a deep breath "Thank you, my Smoky Quartz ally. That'...actually a good saying. I'll have to keep that in mind" She couldn't help but smile a little and sigh "Is there...anything else I can do while I'm here? I can't think of anything to ask or talk about so I suppose I'm at your disposal" Octi shrugged "Also, um...quick question, do you think it's possible that my female persona and male persona could feel different things? I'm not saying I have but...the thought just came to me"
"I am afraid, you can't help here... well, of course you can, there is always plenty of work to do! Sorting out the "merchandise", and so on... or to help my humans to ditribute, and such things. But these are things I am afraid which you do not want to dirty your pretty hands my dear"
The Assassin smiled
"So no... you can't help, sorry."
But he wondered about the Gem's question
"Feel different things? Possible. If your female persona is a seperate personality, like in the case of Yellow Peridot and Rubellite. Different look, different taste, different feelings. It is quite possible, since we do not know the details of the experiments you were part of... if there were any, of course"
"Oh alright..." Octavia sighed and smiled "I understand. You want to keep my hands clean and all" She shrugged though with Morion's answer "I have no idea if I was part of any experiments, I've yet to actually find out still if I was part of any or not." Octi sighed and looked down at the ground "Where could I find out if I was? I mean I know the Kindergarten's a possibility but I would have to actually go back to Homeworld and...we both know how hard it might be to get there given the warp pad situation and plain distance involved. I just asked because...I thought it felt different switching from male to female, besides my gender itself"
Morion nodded "Maybe... at Gem facilitties? Laboratories to be precise. Raid databanks and so on... you room mate, that Blue Zoisite... Hunter could help you. At least I think he could. Hunter is always with his laptop..."
The smoky Quartz murmurred
"And... yes, at home there are all the answers to all of your questions! One more reason to beat those pesky Rebels... they are the reason we are stranded here!"
"You feel... different you say? Strange... What do you feel exactly Bloodstone? Or felt when you have changed to female form from male form?
The smoky Quartz was a bit worried
"Maybe... this is the side effect of your Berserker mode? Please explain..."
"Hunter could help me, and don't expect to get Hunter's laptop by the way." Octavia smiled a little and sighed "Yeah yeah, another reason to hate the rebels, blah blah." She looked up at Morion and sighed "Well...when I had shifted back into my male form, I had felt a bit...embarrassed about how I had acted at the party last time. I believe the word the humans use is tipsy" Octi laughed nervously "But..at the same time, I haven't switched into my female form as often unless absolutely necessary or I really feel like it. I kinda feel like I should have been using this form much more than I have been...it's just so confusing, I don't know if it's a side effect or what!"
Melody: as usual, just waiting for posts

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" is being treated like a virus due to lack of info about it on 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
