It was another quiet night out on the beach. Hunter had gone to bed and Octavian smiled as he decided to walk outside. He had been having trouble sleeping and hummed as he took his telescope out. It had been a long time since the Bloodstone had charted the stars. After all it was one of the main reasons he told himself that he'd come to Earth, to chart the stars and see just what was out there in the universe. As he set up, Octi decided to switch over to Octavia, his female persona. Bloodstone had a tendency to switch between male and female from time to time. She hummed a song she heard one of the earth bands play before she could hear footsteps in the distance. Using the telescope out of convenience, she looked out and smiled when she recognized a certain Scout gem.

Carbide was out killing time along the beach at night, she had over her shoulder a treasure borrowed from Pallasite, and it WAS a sight to behold. Pallas had dubbed it sonic cranial agitator... but the earthbound humans had a different name for the device all together, the ubiquitous BOOM BOX, straight out of the human era known as the 80's.
Anyway, Carbide did not exactly have the human music device cranked up to its utmost auditory potential, but still she hopped along, barefoot along the sand, strewn with sea foam and kelp strands, enjoying what she had been told was a 'Mix Tape' by a human at an old record shop. Most of the sounds seemed to be produced by the synthesizer, but it was still good, and so she was enjoying the music and the night and the cool wet sand and the spray that sogged down her thick unruly locks.
Ever the scout through and through, Carbide eventually slowed her hybrid dance hop pace and looked further up the beach, higher on the hills around it, as she sensed that she was being watched, wary at first but she squints her night tuned eyes and spots a familiar figure further up the beach, waving at her and apparently peering through some sort of human vision augmentation device.
Waving back, she boosts into a jog and after a few minuets of chewing up the sand, she arrives near the hilly bluff backing the cliff area where Octy had set up her home, which seemed to have been improved upon since the last time Carbide was in the neighborhood so to speak.
"Octy, hey.. what got you up so late? Er.. not that we need the sleep.. but it sure seems to be an earth pastime that a lot of gems have gotten on board with.. eh, cant blame em hardly, Ha Ha!" She pauses to shake some sand from her fierce locks, sending a gritty shower towards the bloodstone.
Octavia smiled when her suspicions were confirmed. She hadn't been able to talk to Carbide in a long time and admittedly missed the heavy scout. Although she did take notice of the piece of earth tech on Carbide's shoulder, figuring it was some sort of music player. "Hiya Carbi! I dunno, I just couldn't get myself to sleep tonight so I decided to come out and try to chart some stars again." She smiled and laughed a little when the sand got thrown by her friend "It's what I tend to do if nothing else." Octi smiled as she listened to the music that Carbide was playing "That's a...boom box right? I think I remember seeing one of those before in some movie I dug up" She chuckled a little to herself "I saw your dance down on the beach, that was pretty good! But that aside, how are you and Pallas? I haven't gotten a chance to talk to you two in awhile" Octi set her stuff down and gave Carbide a hug, for old times sake "And not gonna lie, I did miss both of you too."

"Hmm? This old thing? Yeah! Pallas seems to be okay with me borrowing a thing or two from her collection so long as I put it back where I got it. So how about you thought, star gazing and all that. Are all the stars accounted for? hehe."
Carbide sets her Boom Box down softly on the sandy soil, where it transitions to sparse wiry beach grasses and works a few more twists out of her hair..
"Thanks though, I just dance so that it feels good, I cant say I am exactly the most graceful thing on two feet, I'll leave that to the pearls I think. Pallas has been off doing her own thing for a lil bit here, I know she'll show up when shes ready though, til then.. somebody's gotta hold down the junk pile, and all that, am I rite?"
She scoots up and gives Octy a nice big overpowered bear hug. "Aww well we miss you too, I guess I really don't have an excuse for not getting out this way though. What happened on your end after that whole.... Rubellite ... thing, that work out okay? I'm still not sure what to make of that Peridot's intentions."
Carbide realizes she is still smooshing the dalyghts out of Octy with her hug and sets her down on the sand again with a slight plum blush on her cheeks.. "Er sorry about that.. so whats up for the rest of your night now that I have gone and so handily interrupted it? hmm?"
"Aye, the stars seem to be accounted for it seems like. No new galaxies, constellations or whatever though, kinda disappointed in that department." Oct chuckled and smiled as she set her stuff down and looked over at Carbide
Bloodstone watched her set the Boom Box down and smiles as she messes with her hair
"I understand. I know how you feel, trust me. Bloodstone's like me aren't exactly built to be graceful if you get my point. But I'm glad Pallas is at least doing okay, hopefully she's handling herself well."
Octavian winced a little, almost squeaking as Carbide picked him up in a big bear hug, nodding while Carbide talked "It's worked out okay for the most part..Peridot ran off a little after that but she came back recently, apologized and wants to help Hunter take on Morion and his experiments. Although I might have heard something that he stopped working on this...really weird forms for humans." She sighed and smiled
Oct took a breath and sat down next to Carbide, a slight red blush on her cheeks and sighing "I'm not entirely sure what I'm going to do for the rest of the night. Hunter's sleeping inside and...well, there's nothing new to chart. Maybe you and me could "hang out" as the humans put it?" She smirked a little

Carbude scrunches her nose and shudders, thinking about the data she mined from her little expedition to Morion's excavation site at the kindergarten.
"Erf.. yeah Ive seen some of the data on what he was doing.. or at least wanted to do. I can't tell just how successful he was with any of it. It sure puts me in a tricky position to act against him, because theres this wall of squishy humans around him at all times that I would feel terrible about tearing into, even if those lil meat bags happen to have guns or what not. A potential Interspecies PR nightmare, if I ever saw one."
She huffs and flops onto her back on the incline of the sand dune, reaching over clumsily until she finds the volume dial of the boom box and bumps it up a few notches to.. if not clear her head, then at least drown out her own thoughts, bouncing about inside her mind.
"The spooky part is how utterly.. reasonanble that Morion can make everything that comes out of his mouth, sound. Thats the real ticket there. If it comes down to some larger scuffle, I or you or whoever squares off against that cartel narcacist might just need more power than he could ever suspect coming at him in one package."
She glances over and places an affectionate punch on Octy's arm, a bit of a thought forming in her mind about what the two of them could do about it.. IF.. such a need ever were to arise, but they would have to prepare and they would have to practice.
"So, hanging out together hmm.. well what do you think you would think about the idea of REALLY hanging out together, or at least giving it a shot. Last I checked I'm tanky as all get-out, and youre an absolute blitzkreig when you get going... are you thinking what I'm thinking??"
"From what I remember though, I think he may have stopped doing the experiment. Either way though, if that ever happened, it would be a disaster in general." Octavia sighs and smiles as Carbide turns the music up. She nods in agreement and looks down at the sand "I agree..if we ever did decide to take him on one day, it would be nice to have a lot of power on hand." Octy giggles a little when Carbide delivers the affectionate punch, a similar idea forming in their mind, thinking of the best way to do this. "I believe I am. We can try fusing!" Bloodstone smiled and giggled "I'm not the best at dancing but...let's give it a go and see what happens." She blushes and sighs, standing up and helping Carbide stand up "Do you mind leading?"

Carbide blinks and chuckles, the offer was certainly an up front one, but in the end she wasn't too surprized to hear it come from Octy, he was a clever gem, but also had a touch of innocence about him/her.. depending on the situation.
"Woah there, really cutting to the chase aren't you Octy? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.. Okay! I dont really know what to expect here, but ill try and lead, I guess the pressure really IS on now isnt it?"
She lets herself get hauled to her feet by Octavian, making a grab for the boom box on the way up.
"At least way out here, there is not muc infrastructure that we can damage.. thank goodness.. althouhg we may want to move a bit further from your shack... heh, just kidding...but seriously.. I make no promises.."
Carbide's fingers dance about the keys on the tape deck of the boom box, distorted whirring sounds blaring from the speakers, interrupted by moments of clear notes, as she scans forward on the tape, looking for somethign that sounded suitable. Something positive and energetic without sounding tooo... mushy.. sappy.. sugary. " *Whirrrrrrr!!!!!* Hmm, No. *Whiiirrrlllwrrrrrrrrr!* Nope, not that either. *Wrrrrwwrrlllllrr!* Hmmmm! Y'know... this just might do! What do you think of this one Octy??"
Carbide turns the boom box around and the speakers thump and pulse, the music is a mix of what the humans might call an electro song with a firey fiddle part and sections of heavy bass, above all else, it sounded fun, facilitating a dance that mixed fierce hard eratic movments with sections of slower, more gracefu, languid fluidity of motion, well suited to the Scout, and hopefully the brawler too!
((I think this is pretty appropriate wise for the results of fusion!! )
The boombox is set down in the sand, and already a bit excited and into the music, Instead of taking a step or two back, she does a surprisingly graceful blackwards tumble in the sand, her feet hitting down hard and sending the fine substance spraying in the aid, as she drags one of them along in a long sweeping arc, her heavy bangs falling down over her eyes, sort of putting herself into her own little world as she builds up a bit of steam to start her dance..building power on her own, like a distant thunder storm, a gradual Iridescent and magama like glow rising from her gem core to ignite with the moonlight hitting the beach.
Octi blushed and laughed, nodding at Carbides statement. "I suppose I'm a bit excited, but can you blame me? Fusion has always fascinated me. And yeah, if you could lead that would be fantastic. I'll move us to a safer area." She led the two of them a few more feet away from the shack before helping Carbi set the boom box down. "Hopefully this is a safe enough distance for the two of us to do this." Bloodstone watched curiously as Carbide skipped around on the tape before eventually finding a tune that seemed to fit the mood they were looking for. "I like it! It's perfect" Octavia smiled happily and started to dance with Carbide, feeling herself be dragged in the arc as her gem started to glow a little in the moonlight. Octi let her hair fall down to her shoulders as she moved and danced with the beat, spinning and just letting loose in any move possible, feeling the best she could ever remember feeling
njrk97: I mean Carbon is a very chemically stable element, takes alot for it to react, and Diamonds are already made from immense heat and pressure on coal, so good luck trying to burn a Diamond Gemstone

Light: it still doesn't answer my question. What does it smell like (Although it would differ from gem to gem)

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
