It was a beautiful, cloudless night. The stars were shining bright, there was a full moon, and a cool and salty sea breeze can be felt passing by every once in a while. Moonstone was sitting on a ledge close to the warp pad while the gem on the back of his neck started to glow. "Ah! The glorious moon in it's best phase. It makes me feel energized and stronger." he said as he took a deep breath through his nose. "The cool, salty sea breeze is making me feel relaxed as well." he said as his gem stopped glowing.
Suddenly, he heard the warp pad activate. Who could that be? Does somebody want to join me on this beautiful night? he thought to himself. As he turned around to see who it was.
As the beam of light fades from the warp pad there stood what at first glance would be a human who's left arm is wrapped in bandages and covers his left eye. He was looking around like he was lost. "Ok...I think I'm back to that temple thing...oh...uh..hi." He rubs the back of his head a bit. "This is the Crystal Gem's temple, right?" He sighs in relieve when he finds out he was there. "Oh thank god. I was getting sick and tired of random warping...I am getting better at it but seriously ending up in the middle of the ocean is not fun!" His head twitches. "But we did have a shark barbeque under water that was fun!" His head twitches again. "I want to know how then heck you did that....oh sorry again...My name is Zerul...the other me you heard...his name is Skeith....he is a...whats the more accurate word?" his head twitches. "Dangerous is the word you're looking for." His head twitches again. "His words not mine...i would have said ass hole."

Moonstone looks at the Zerul, and gives a concerned look. "Uhh... Hi... My name is Moonstone, but you can just call me Moon. Say, you seem a bit lost, and no offense, but also a bit crazy." He said to Zerul, with a hint of confusion in his voice. "Anyways, care to join me on this beautiful night? Maybe we can learn more about each other. Well, let's not try to squeeze out every single detail out of one-another. It would be nice to keep things on a casual level. It's not too bad here. It's rather lovely." He said as he pats the ground next to him as a prompt for Zerul to sit there. "Take a seat here if you don't mind." He said as he gave him a warm, gentle smile.
Zerul chuckles a bit when he hears that he was lost. "Not exactly. I just don't have a handle on this teleportation business. at least this time I got to a destination I knew of." He walks over and sits where Moonstone wanted him too. "Um...i don't know if I will be able to answer all of your questions. since I only remember up to the point where I woke up on this planet. In the middle of nowhere." It would sound like he was describing a kindergarten but he wasn't from one on earth. He looks at Moonstone curious as to why he was sitting out here by himself staring at the moon. "I don't know what questions to ask either...I'm sorry."

"Sounds like you came from a kindergarten here on Earth. Things are usually confusing after coming out of the ground. Trust me, I have been there before. Interestingly enough, I was born from a kindergarten on a moon. But after a while you will figure out what you were made for, but recently I figured out that you set your own destiny, not others." He said to Zerul. "So what's with this 'other part of you' thing? Is it like an evil side or something? If so, then do you have the slightest clue on why this is a part of you?" He asked with a concerned look on his face. He continued to look at the full moon in the night.
Zerul rubs the back of his head unsure if the mountain he found himself on was a kindergarten. He listens to the questions and wasn't sure how to word it. "Um. He is Skeith. and you could say he is Evil as he prefers killing things. as for why he exists...i do not know. I want to know why i have a psychopathic mass murderer living in my head." His head twitches. "Your words wound me." He laughs a bit to show he was joking. "Ok Moonstone what are you looking at? its just a piece of rock caught in Earth's gravity a useless rock that would look better shattered!." His head twitches again. "No you will do no such thing!"

"I was created on a moon, like all Moonstones. It is the moon at its full phase that makes me a bit more powerful. And Skeith, shut up. I didn't ask for your opinion. Just enjoy the beautiful weather." He said as he stretched. He looked at Zerul and noticed that his head twitches from time to time. "Uh, why is your head twitching, Zerul?" He asked with a concerned look on his face. "Oh, and one more question. Has your physical form ever been destabilized before? It might be crucial information for finding out more about your 'condition'." He said as he shifts his attention back to the moon. He then inhaled through his nose and exhaled through his mouth.
Zerul looks at him confused. "My head twitched...i haven't noticed. it might be when we changed control." Skeith didn't like Moonstone's comment on the beauty of the beach and ocean. with the stars above glistening off of the water. It was enough to make him sick. "I..haven't been poofed yet if that's what you mean." He sighs he was being all these questions but yet no answers to his own personal questions have come of this conversation. He didn't know what to expect from the conversation but he had hoped it would give him some insite to what he was. Why was he so unique to have a split personality and be unable to remember anything other than that burning room.

"That seems to be the case. I do wonder what would happen if you were to be 'poofed', but I don't want to hurt you. Then some questions will arise. Will it separate you from Skeith? Is this whole thing some sort of mental fusion? Are YOU a fusion? Maybe you formed a bit wrong and you need to be 'poofed' in order to reform correctly. I am not trying to call you a defect, but I am just trying to tell you my hypothesis and maybe I can shed some light on your situation. I don't want to jump to conclusions immediately though." he said as he noticed the bandages on Zerul. "What's with the wrappings, Zerul?" he asked.
Zerul was feeling uncomfortable when Moonstone was talking about him getting poofed. His uneasiness was messing with his powers. The air around them got warmer by the second the longer he talked about it. Zerul stayed quiet until he was asked about the bandages. "Its....to help me hide in public from the humans...they tend to fear what they don't know." He rubs his left arm and looks away from Moonstone. "The first town I went to the humans turned on me in an instant. Skeith nearly burned down the whole town as I tried to run away from them." his head twitches. "if only I did their screams of agony and pain would have been music to my ears as we fled the city." A dark smile comes across his face as the air heated up more.

Moonstone began to feel a sudden change in temperature. "Is it me, or is it getting a bit warmer here? This sudden change in temperature is not normal." he said with some concern in his voice. "And humans tend to attack what they do not understand. They need to take the time to get to understand other beings instead of resorting to senseless hostility." he said with a justified tone in his voice. "And Zerul, try to regain control again. I think Skeith is trying to take over your mind and body." he said as calm as he can without showing any kind of fear or discomfort. He tried to show no signs of fear, and he was successful in doing so. He did not want his fear to awaken Skeith.
Skeith tilts his head to Moonstone. "Whats the matter you find mindless destruction boring?" His head twitches. "Im...sorry...he gets hard to shackle at times." The temperature stayed pretty warm until the cool breeze took back over. "I can't keep him contained forever...i fear when he takes control what will happen." He sighs. "If I can't keep him contained he will destroy everything in his path." He leans back till he was laying on the ground. "I can't fight without risking him coming free. I was on this beach earlier this month when I was shipwrecked. the two gems i met on this very beach...weren't the most friendly. I ran away before things could become an issue."

"I think you can keep him under control Zerul. Just don't sink down to his level. Some day, we might figure out what Skeith is. He could be another gem trying to posses you or something. I don't know. Maybe I can find somebody to help you. Somebody that excels in psychology, or possible the study of something a bit more, supernatural. I heard some creepy humans are great with that stuff. And Skeith, mindless destruction is boring." he said as he got up.
He stretched again and started to walk towards the warp pad. Right before he stepped on it, he stopped. "One more theory is that Skeith might be a split personality of yours. Anyways, it was nice meeting you Zerul. We will meet again. I am sure of it." he said as he stepped on the warp pad and warped out.
(This is your last post on this thread, so make it count)
Zerul was fighting back Skeith when Moonstone took his leave. He manages to launch a fireball but misses because of how fast the warp pads work. Zerul got back control and quietly heads home on foot. He didn't have far but he didn't want to risk getting lost again that night. As he walked home He blinks for a second and everything was on fire. He beings to panic wondering if everyone was ok. He runs around in a frenzy untill the fire dissapeared. he hears Skeith laughing. "Look at you running around like moth to a flame. Dont worry i wont torch the city...yet." He laughs again as Zerul slowly arrived at Octavian's hut. He walks inside and quietly goes up to his little room on the 3rd floor to think things over.
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
