Opalite sat on the edge of the fountain. Even this fountain can't fight my disfigurement. Opalite thought as he constantly slathered the liquid on his gem, the white side of his face, his blackened and red eye. It never worked. Only a flicker of his former self was seen, but nothing else. He shot an electrical surge threw the water, making flecks of electricity pop out of it every few seconds."This substance doesn't do a damn thing to help me." He groaned in despair as his blackened eye flickered white for a mere second when the liquid was pressed against it, but soon returning to black. He slammed his fist on the edge of the fountain, cracking part of the stone. I guess you can't fix something broken beyond repair.
"Hey..." Came a voice. Someone was behind him. It was a gem with purple skim, dark purple, curly hair and grayish purple clothes. She had a shirt and skirt, her gem was on her right shin. She seemed concerned. She took a few steps toward him, carrying a bucket. "What are you trying to do?" She said. "The fountain only heals, it doesn't change how you look, if it isn't helping then it's not a physical problem. You've got to change the way you see yourself..." She suddenly considered something. "Are you...Corrupting?" She mumbled. "If the fountain isn't working then it's probably too late...just let me talk to you okay?" She started to walk toward him. She reached out her hand.
Opalite hissed at the gem that pulled her hand out, his blacked out eye flickering from white to black again before staying into it's broken color."I don't need some clod to help me fix myself! I am broken and there is no way o fix what has been done to me!" He shot a stream of electricity at the gem's hand to give her the message that he didn't want her to come any closer. One of his hands were deep within the floor of the fountain, and she took it out, dripping some across himself. He put some more of it on his darkened eye again, once again flickering to a normal color. A hint of a purple eye color was seen as well as it flickered like a light, but it soon went back to black. If this didn't help him, then he was stuck this way.
As Obsidian watched her face fell. She had an idea of what this might mean, but she couldn't be sure. If she was correct he was already done for. "Uh...If I might ask... Is that corruption?" She took a step backward. "I know this is probably hard for you, but I want to see if I can help... you've got to let me try!" She rubbed her arm while looking at him. She was afraid of becoming corrupted more than anything, but this was a situation that demanded special care. "I'm not going to invade your space without permission..." She said. "If you want me to help it's completely up to you. I don't know what to do, but we could find someone who does..."
Opalite tilted his head, his red eye following obsidian."Do you know what I am? I am something that nobody else I have seen is. I am a forced fusion!" He snapped at Oneidian, thinking she would've already known by his disfigured form and his extra set of arms. His voice was like grating metal, sharp, robotic, and a little creepy. He opens his mouth to say something more, his teeth as sharp as razors, but then shut up and thought for a quick second. Since this gem had no idea what or who he was, he thought he would shed a little light on the subject and describe it to her."Tell me. Do you know what the kindergarden is?"
She looked at his arms and then it started to make sense to her. She barely knew what even fusion was, she had only seen it once. Being one who hated the idea of forced fusion was horrific. "Well, yeah, I sometimes fight these creepy monsters there. I Haven't gone there In a while, it's such a creepy place. Why do you ask? Or...are you from there? Are you one of those things I've been fighting? How can you talk? The other monsters can't!" Obsidian just finished asking and she had a new set of questions. "How did it happen? Who did this to you? Is that what happened to you? If the diamonds figure out about this they`ll be furious!
Opalite growled, irritated at this gem's frantic questions."Can you stop babbling on you little brat and let me speak?!" He snapped at her. He was not one to speak with other gems very well. But this one was especially difficult to converse with."Fotced fusion is the way homeworld views to make gems stronger or help them. A gem was shattered in battle and put into me. I was once a pearl, but then those idiots from homeworld screwed it my form up! I will always be broken!" He inched closer with one arm dragging him across the rim of the fountain. His expression got much more angry."Are you a homeworld gem? Are you one of them? Tell me!"
"Well... uh..." She mumbled hesitantly. "Since you're a fusion, maybe I can help. If you're two gems stuck together, won't you unfused if you're poofed?" She looked at him, hoping she was correct. It seemed as if there was no hope for this gem, but she wanted to try to help. If she didn't, this would weigh on her conscience. "Alright, I know you probably don't exactly want to be poofed or something, but I really think it's worth a shot." Obsidian stomped the floor and a shovel shot out of her gem and she caught it quickly. "I'm only going to do this if it's what you want. Don't worry, I promise that I`ll make it as quick as I can."
Opalite got to his feet, but it did take a few moments for him to get up."I have tried everything! I have tried retreating back to my gem. I have tried this damned fluid! I have even tried prying the shards out of myself! Nothing works dammit! So stop trying to fix something that is broken beyond anyone's control!!" He screamed in that metallic voice as she shot electricity from one of his arms, having the possiblity that it could hit Obsidian, but he didn't care. He didn't want this foolish gem to try something that would never work. Homeworld made him this way, and if he wanted to become himself again, he would have to do it himself. Maybe a more wired or metallic body would work for him for a shot time.
Obsidian blocked one of the bolts of electricity with her shovel and sidestepped to dodge another. She sighed, knowing that this was going nowhere. "How do you even try to pry those shards off? If that gem is stuck inside you it's a million times harder!" She said indignantly. "You can't do everything all by yourself! Sometimes In life you've just got to let people help you alright? Nobody can ever go through life alone and expect to get all that far! If you don't want my help I`ll just leave! All I want to do is try, you can at least let me do that right?!" Obsidian realized that she had started yelling too, this sort of thing stressed her out.

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
