Melody hopped off of the warp pad as she found herself at the Lunar Sea Spire. This had been the place where she spent most, if not all of her time on Earth. Even now as she walked through the rubble, the Chrysocolla realized just how badly damaged it was. Morion was right, the Spire was in need of repair. "Shame...this place used to be so fantastic. So many good performances.." Melody looked around as she decided to start walking through the spire and see what all she could possibly do. It would take time, and granted she wasn't exactly the best at repairing things, but it was possible for her to start to fix the spire on her own. There were rocks that could be moved, artwork that could be made once again, statues that could be put back together. "Just like all songs this is going to take time..but I can do it." She smiled as she pulled out her guitar, playing a healing song to hopefully carry some influence on the objects around her
The green gem quietly paced through the corridors of the spire, deep in thought. He had often come to this place to get lost in his mind, and relax. He was somewhat depressed at the now ruined state of the spire, but also thought about how this was also a place where the same gems that wanted to destroy the Earth communed. He was startled out of this trance like state by the sound of music. He followed the music down a corridor and peeked around the corner. She seemed to be nice, the music convincing him the she couldn't be all that bad. But he reminded himself that he still had to be cautious. He summoned a sword and levitated it behind his back as he slowly exited the corridor and approached the blue gem.
"Hey there!" he said, trying to come off as friendly.
"I'm Idocrase! A pleasure to meet you!" the green gem expressed, reaching his hand out for the other gem to shake.

The Sea Spire... was once the hub of so many gems, now it was little more then a fancy echo chamber that... didn't work all of the time.. at least in its current state. Having already been here for quite awhile, O was wondering the halls and corridors for hours now. Even after all his time on his planet he had still really only enjoyed being around Gem structures.
"Ho-hohoho Ho-ho-ho-ho~ Ho-hohoho Ho-ho-ho-ho~
Gather up all of the gems, It’s time to ship out 'round the bend, Space-wind blows To where? Who knows? The waves will be our guide."
His voices rang out, seeming like two tones speaking at once. While his voices gave sound in the material world, Mr. O was tucked away in his rift realm.
"~O’er across the star’s up high, Rays of sunshine far and wide. Birds they sing, Of cheerful things, In circles passing by!
Bid farewell to our dear home, Say so long to the port, Sing a song, It won’t be long, Before we’re casting off!~"
Little did he know he was making his way closer and closer to a hall that two gems were already in... what a surprise they might be in for if they haven't noticed the singing.
"Hm?" Melody stopped playing when she heard a voice behind her. "Ah, hello there!" She shook Idocrase's hand and smiled "Nice to meet you too, name's Chrysocolla but you can call me Melody if that's easier." She sighed as she looked around "I see you came to visit this place too. You know I used to perform here for countless years before Homeworld got cut off from Earth. It's a shame really." Melody was going to talk more but she eventually heard another voice ringing out in the hallways. It sounded as if someone was singing. "Hold on, I do believe we might not be alone. Might want to get that sword handy." She smirked as she hopped up and looked around, trying to find the source of the song "Hello? Is anyone else here..?"
"Well, I didn't actually visit this place very often. I was one of the gems who actually scouted out the area for it to be built in." He announces with a small tinge of pride. His ears twitch as a sound reaches them. He instinctively lowers his body a bit and slides his right foot back a little. He summons another sword for him to wield while the other one floats nearby, but blushes slightly when the other gem comments about how she already knew that he already had his weapon out. He slowly steps toward the new singing voice, both swords in front of him.
"What do you suggest we do?" He quietly whispers to the blue gem following behind him.

"~Cross the stars and blackend skys, A cosmic wind puts us at ease, Day and night, To our delight, The voyage never ends.
Gather up all of the gems, It’s time to ship out 'round the bend, Star pilots we, Eternally, Are challenging the stars.~"
His voice started to grow softer at the sound of other voices filling his hearing devises, his singing comes to an end as he rounds the corner, outside of the view of both gems that were now before him. With a sudden crack, O had slammed his cane off the ground, his projection appearing in a rapid "POP!" and this odd taste of blue filling the air around him. There before the two gems stood the Grand Inquisitor of White Diamond himself! His slick black and white tux with blue trim fluttered a bit in the light breeze.
A single gloved hand grabs the brim of his top hat, his other hand pulled his cane back up under his arm. The blazingly brilliant eyes shines so bright and well... white that once could see them clearly in the pitch black. "Well hellooooooooo darlings! Care to give me your names? Well... what I mean is... STATE your names at once! Please and thank youuu~!" His voices were... loud but calm at the same time, he didn't make any aggressive motion towards the two... just his just-about-creepy bright smile plastered across his sky blue face.
"No idea..." Melody muttered as she looked around. She backed up in shock when O popped into view in front of her and Idocrase. She looked up at him, taking in view his full body but sighs and relaxes a little "I'm Chrysocolla, but you may call me Melody if you wish. I'm a former performer from here at the Lunar Sea Spire. This appears to be Idocrase, a scout. We literally just ran into each other before we couldn't help but notice your singing." She looked up at O and smiled "You look lovely by the way, I feel like the top hat and cane suit you." Melody laughed nervously, not sure what to make of O. He looked...familiar, for some reason
The sudden outburst from O startled the green gem, sending him soaring nearly 20 feet in the air. Instinctively, Idocrase sent both of his swords flying in the direction of the new gem. Fortunately, in his panic both swords went wide and lodged themselves into the walls of the Sea Spire, before promptly disappearing. Though this flurry was not quite over. Idocrase began a quick descent towards the ground. A few feet before greeting the floor with his face, he reached his hand out and a large flower bloomed, catching the startled gem. After a brief moment of silence, Idocrase peeked over the ledge at the fancy new gem.
"Umm...." He started akwardly, "As she said, I'm Idocrase." The gem nervously stated before the flower shrunk back into the floor of the Sea Spire. Idocrase now stood safely on the floor, failing at trying to play off what just happened.

O watched with his ever present smile as the one green gem launched into the air, even going so far as to throw two blades at the Grand Inquisitor?! Luckily both flung away from him so moving wasn't being forced upon him. Then without skipping a beat. "A Chrysocolla and an Idocrase... roiiiiiight... how dull.." O didn't seemed too impressed by the two gems, nether looked like a threat to him or seemed insane or completely radical.... maybe the one a bit jumpy.
"You look lovely by the way, I feel like the top hat and cane suit you." this was just about all that O had really heard from either of the gems short of their names, "I ALWAYS look this lovely darling, but thank you none the less!" His tone seemed quite joyful yet knowing anything about Mr. O is that he would offer you tea in one hand while piercing your gem with the other. "Well then.... I take it you know who I am, yes?" while he spoke he drew much closer to the two gems fairly fast paced.
"Either way! I do love introducing my self... I am the Lord of the Ordos Inquisitus, The Ringmaster of the White Court, 'Mancer of Time and Space, The GRAND Inquisitor under her majestic White Diamond!" O spinning about quickly before striking a dramatic pose with one hand gripping the brim of his top hat, and leaning onto his cane with his free hand. "Sooooooo.... if you didn't know who I was before, which I highly doubt... you do now! Tell me darlings... your both loyal Gems of the might Empire! Correct?" He returns to his normal stance, still leaning on the cane, and its hard to really tell where he was looking with the lack of pupils. It seemed his gaze was locked onto Idocrase... but can't really say for sure.
Melody giggled a little and smiled when she saw Idocrase land on the flower that seemed to appear out of nowhere. She sighed and looked back up at O. "All I'm going to say to that my good sir, is that I am a performer. Before I had gotten cut off from Homeworld I was a performer for Blue Diamond's court and here at the Sea Spire. I go wherever an audience is needed. So for the moment at least, yes, I'm loyal." Melody rolled her eyes "I don't have any plans of actually joining the crystal gems any time soon but I have heard there are some gems that consider themselves independent. I find that interesting in all honesty"
"As my friend here stated a moment ago, I was a scout under yellow diamonds authority. And it just so happens that since we've been cut off, I've considered myself independent; I'm not part of homeworld, or the Crystal Gems." He states, with a bit of pride at the very end.
"I honestly don't see the whole point of the rebellion. I understand the Earth is beautiful and all," he pauses and walks over to sit on one of the window ledges of the Spire, "But so were many other planets that we gems have colonized. Why all of a sudden cause a huge stink about Earth? But at the same time, I'm kind of sick of just being some pawn for the Diamonds to utilize. In short, I just don't want to be a part of any of this mess."

"A Scout and a performer? One who says she is loyal, while the other claims independence? Meh... I suppose thats acceptable." He was satisfied knowing nether said to his face that they were rebels, this meant he could have fun prying the truth from them... or they were telling the truth and he didn't have to care. A performer was an interesting thing to see, "A performer is such a nice change from the assassins and soldiers... more then a few scouts on this planet as well!"
O couldn't help but agree with Idocrase in this instance, "See, now thats the mentality I wish more of our gems had! I have been around for the last twenty millenniums and I have seen my share of lovely planets, far more interesting then Earth.... I do enjoy these human snacks though..." He mumbled at bit towards the end, what he spoke was true though, he could never understand or wrap his head around how gems could identify with these other planets over our own glorious world!
Melody sighed and nodded, rolling her eyes. She could've sworn she heard something a bit...disturbing from O but she decided to forget about that. "So, tell me..erm..wait, I just realized something. I was told about you by um...Morion. I ran into him at a bar in Empire City, not a bad gem." She shrugged before looking around "Do either of you have any idea of how to fix this place up? That's the reason I came here in the first place. I wanted to try and see if it was possible to fix up the Lunar Sea Spire back to it's former glory." Melody looked around, remembering all of the great performances she had given at the Spire
Idocrase smiles as O agrees with him. It's nice to know he wasn't the only one who thought this. He turns his attention to Melody.
"It would take a tremendous amount of work just to complete one eighth of the spire!" The green gem exclaims. "One would have to have a crew of gems specifically designed for this to even make a dent! And we hardly have one. We have what, a scout, a performer, and the GRAND Inquisitor." Idocrase states, throwing a little panache into his voice when speaking O's title. "Though, even with all that, if you really wanted to, I guess I'll lend a hand. Not that I could actually help much. I'd probably just end up levitating things around the whole time." Says the green gem. He looks at O, wondering what his opinion is on Melody's idea. They both seem fairly interesting, so he doesn't mind the idea of sticking around longer.

Mr. Os unmoving face seemed to literally light up at the sound of a loyal servent. "Ah! Morion... Interesting gem is he not? Might I ask what he told you about my dapper self?!" He always enjoyed how Morion spoke of him. Seemed he was the only gem on his planet that gave him the respect he was accustomed to on Homeworld."Rebuild the Spire?! Thats.... Not too bad an idea really, darling..."
O began to ponder, turning and slowly walking back and forth before the two gems. On one hand the little green gem had a point. The amount of gem power needed to really return the location to its former glory. "Hmmm... I mean. Of course I wont PERSONALLY help, but I might be able to help." the very tall frame of the Inquisitor stopped before Melody, "A LOYAL member of any court of Homeworld!" he awaited a response. It was half for fun and half for real, why should he help a gem that wont side with their home?!
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
