Were her arms not tied to her torso right now, Turquoise would have rubbed her temples. How little did they think she knew of this planet? Sure, she thought those "cows" were the ones who built the structures on this field, but who could blame her? The paint was cracked, there were pieces of sharp metal sticking out at places where they shouldn't; it just looked like it was made by creatures as clumsy and slow looking as those spotted animals. And hearing those two gems laugh about this completely understandable mistake just made Turquoise angrier.
"I know humans are the dominant species here!" The gem said, as a blue blush appeared on her cheeks and neck. "I've been here before they even learned about the wheel!" Turquoise looked away from the two gems, muttering some near-inaudible, nonsensical threats and curses. She wasn't going to be outsmarted by a grunt and an Earth freshgem. "And I'm not here to learn more about those humans, let alone going on a "tour" with you two."
"Oh, and don't you worry, Moonstone." Turquoise added, as she turned to the silver gem, with a small smirk on her face. "You were a lot less threatening than you thought you were. It's actually miss chain over here who's the threatening one."
"Thanks....I think?" Octavian rolled his eyes as he looked down at Turquoise "And how was I supposed to know, okay? It was getting hard to get information out of you until you got angry" He smiled and chuckled. "It's still impressive that you seem like such a mighty spy but I can assure you there is still stuff you don't know. Now, is there anything else you want to tell me in your temper?" Bloodstone stood up, still holding Turquoise in his chains "Because I'm starting to lose the fun in seeing you like this. That and I don't see any point in hurting you, tossing you around like a ball or anything like that. I don't use violence unless absolutely necessary"

"After we get this information out of you, we will let you go. But when we do that, I want you to think about everything that I said to you. I hope we do meet again..., on better terms..." he said as he sighed. "I didn't like holding you hostage, well that was actually Bloodstone doing that, but I sorta played a role in this whole thing." he said as he blushes a bit. He then immediately hides it. "Argh! You did not see me do that! You will just call me a romantic clod, or something like that." he quickly said. "Well, this is so embarassing." he said quietly as he continues to hide his face in his hands.
"I don't have a temper, this is how I always talk!" Turquoise shouted out loudly in frustration, before dropping herself onto her butt, and sitting down on the ground with her arms still tied to her sides. With the slight pout and the grumpy frown, she could almost be mistaken for a moody child. In reality though, she just had never experienced setbacks like this. For centuries she had just been traveling around, gathering ground samples and making audio logs, without anyone interfering. Having to stop doing this, while also being held still against her will, finally managed to make her snap.
Sitting down there on the ground, she suddenly seemed a lot less entitled and full of herself. If anything, she seemed helpless; which also happened to be exactly how she felt. She just wanted to do her job, without gems capturing her, asking her for information they shouldn't know, and keeping her from being free. "And for Diamonds' sake, stop thinking I'm even the least bit interested in you..." Turquoise grumbled at Moonstone. "You're not romantic, you're not cute, and I'm not interested in your or anyone's love."
"Fair enough" Bloodstone shrugged as he sighed and looked down at Turquoise "In all honesty I might just let you go right now...if nothing else so that you don't have to deal with Moonstone's romantic escapades." He chuckled and looked over at Moonstone "No offense man, but it is kinda making you look like a bit of a fool" Octi chuckled as he looked back at Turquoise "All I'm going to give is a bit of a warning. If I see you do anything that may involve someone who I consider my friend in the future and it's harmful, I'm not going to hold back next time. Are we clear?" Octi clearly looked ready to let Turquoise go, but he wanted to make sure

Suddenly, on a nearby radio, "What is Love" starts to play. This made Moonstone snap. He summons his claymore and slashes the radio. He then approaches Turquoise with the look of a madman. "YOU KNOW WHAT? I DON'T NEED SOMEBODY AS WEAK AND PATHETIC AS YOU ARE!!! YOU WILL NEVER BE GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME OR ANYBODY ELSE ON HOMEWORLD!!! YOU ARE JUST USELESS YOU CLOD!!!" he shouted as he menacingly looks at Turquoise. "I TOO, CAN BE THREATENING!!!" he shouted as he was almost at Turqouoise's face. " I WILL PROVE HOW WEAK AND PATHETIC YOU ARE, RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW!!!" he shouted as he raises his claymore. He stops right before he stabs her. He calms down as he backs away and desummons his claymore. "I cannot do this with Octi here." he said through his grit teeth.
After going quiet for a bit, the gem sighed. "You know, Bloodstone," Turquoise said when the green gem had warned her, "If I'd ignore the fact that you wrapped me up in chains and took away my freedom for some time, and that you're not any help towards Homeworld's plans, I think I'd like you." As she said this, she had a small smile on her face, having calmed down a bit. In fact, it even sounded as if she was giving Bloodstone a compliment. "And if you're worried about me directly hurting any of your friends; don't be. No offense, but I'm no quartz. I wasn't made for fighting, I was made for-"
Just when Turquoise was about to spill some beans on what she was made for, Moonstone snapped. The Moonstone himself probably thought his act was threatening or scary, but in reality, Turquoise had no fear getting hit by him. Sure, she was scared of getting shattered, but there was no way for that Moonstone to do such a thing to her with his simple sword. And if he could even gather the courage to poof Turquoise, that would be no more than an inconvenience to her. She had been poofed many times before. Geysers, big-teethed Earth creatures, falling boulders; the life of a field researcher was stuffed with small, harmful things like that. And apparently rogue Moonstones with the temper of a faulty Ruby were on that list as well.
So while the Moonstone was throwing his tantrum, Turquoise looked at him with a mixture of annoyance and disgust on her face. When he finally stopped screaming, Turquoise frowned slightly at him. "Well, I can see the real reason why you were banished. Forget "knowing too much", you're clearly unstable."
Bloodstone sighed and smiled, nodding at Turquoise. He chuckled and smiled "None taken." Octi had a good idea as to what Turquoise was for, she at least seemed like a spy to his eyes at least. He was about to let her continue before backing up in shock at Moonstone's sudden change in mood. Octi hadn't expected a temper like this and he pushed on Moonstone a little with two more of his chains. "Easy there big guy, no sense in doing that. And no offense but she's right, you do kinda have to turn it down a little if you get my point...out of curiosity, did anyone on Homeworld ever call you defective? I'm just curious, no particular reason at all..."

Having calmed down, he responded "No, I am still just a little shaken up and disoriented from my crash-landing." He then looked at Turquoise with a look of guilt. "Hey Turquoise, I am so sorry about that. I don't know what got into me. I am just... I will just... leave..." he said as he let out a deep sigh. "I have had a rough day today, I just hope you can understand. I think I am gonna become independent like Octi. But I must leave. I don't think you wanna see me again. So I guess I will head out now..." he said as he let out another deep sigh. He then has begun to walk away from the gems.
As Moonstone made his exit, Turquoise waited quietly. She knew that anything she said could cause him to come walking back right back at her. And right now, all she wanted was to be able to move her arms again. So once she didn't see him anymore, she looked at the Bloodstone and sighed, rolling her eyes with a relieved smile on her face. "And here I thought that rock was going to stay here all day to torture me with his... Well, with his him being him." A short chuckle left her mouth.
"So, Bloodstone, are you still going to release me, or am I going to have to live the rest of my life hopping around in chains?" Though she said it jokingly, a part of Turquoise actually believed the Bloodstone would be capable of doing this. "I mean, you're not going to do that, right? You are going to let me go, right?"
"As tempting as that is, I'll let you go. Just hold still for a second." Bloodstone chuckled and smiled as he unwrapped the chains off of Turquoise, making them disappear as he crouched down at Turquoise "Apologies about all of that by the way, hope i didn't hurt you in any particular way." Octi smiled as he shifted into Octavia then and there "Yes I do this a lot actually, I find that shifting my gender projection is alright. For some reason it just...happened one day and then I got used to it."She shrugged as she sighed "So um...is this the part where you run off to escape me? Not gonna lie, I kinda hope i run into you again"
Immediately after being released from the chains, Turquoise clumsily dashed back, until there was about 13 feet of distance between them. Sure, they had been small-talking a lot, but truth of the matter was that Turquoise still didn't trust the Moonstone. This was also clear in her expression, which came closer to that of a wild doe's than that of an actual person. With this distance between them, Turquoise quickly scratched the spot that had been itching, and stretched her legs. After that, she rubbed her wrist tech, which hologram screen turned off in reaction to that.
"Yes, this is the part where I escape..." Turquoise said, now sounding a lot less loud than when she was captured in chains. "You scare me, Bloodstone. I don't wish to see you again, really. And I especially wish to never see your chains again..." She quietly listened to Bloodstone's response, while her feet began to glow a faint blue, and she started to hover a few inches above the ground. Once Bloodstone was done talking, Turquoise simply looked at the gem, with still a hint of fear in her eyes, before skating off on the glow. The further away she got, the faster she went, until Bloodstone saw her disappear behind the hills.
(Last post is for you, Blood! Make it memorable! )
"I see...I'm sorry...I promise that I won't hurt you again next time I see you. In fact..." He tossed a communicator to Turquoise "If you think you can trust me again, use this. I think I have info even you haven't found yet. Trust me on this one." Octi nodded and saluted before turning around and walking off. This was why he never liked being violent, it made him lose potential allies...or friends. It just wasn't good for him any more. Maybe the old Bloodstone would have loved it but now he wasn't up for it "Why am I cursed with being this way....I'm sorry Turquoise." Octi walked on back to his shack, deciding to make his next move at some point

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
