It was dark out, travelling back to Obsidian's ship had taken all day, the weakened red glow of an armored gem just barely visible. At this point his progress had slowed to a crawl, one arm cradling an item and the other pulling him along supported by his enhanced legs. He dragged himself into the ship, all the way into the engineering room he had initially woke up in. When... everything happened., when Dolomite was made. He raised his hand, a somewhat difficult task without the support of his power cables, and observed the item he had carried with him the whole way. In his hand was the little gaming device he had previously lent to Opalite. Questions ran through his head, why had he kept it? Why would he bring it to his house? Why did he not seem to recognize him? Was he toying with him? He had to be, right? After all he'd been through, that HAD been O who did it all. Right...?

"Pearl i swear, for the third time, it's not the cords i ne-" she peered over her data-pad at the door, cutting off mid-sentence as she sees Dolomite in terrible condition. "What happened?!" she did not need to feign her feelings this time, because she was genuinely worried about what happened to her S.T.A.N.D. "Did you defeat them? Opal and Carbide?" she wanted to get this question out of the way first, wanting to know if the prototype wasn't useless at all.
With a snap of her fingers, several automatons floated to Dolomite, these were newer versions of Obsidian Automaton collection. (Not that Dolomite knew about it, she'll have to lie more just to keep her identity safe) These newer versions were specifically made for task such as lab work or repairs, these automatons did not, however, fight at all. "Don't worry, i'll have to remove those cords and massive gauntlets in order for me to see if you suffered any...internal damage"
He turned his head to see Obsidian enter, lowering his hands back down (stowing away the old Gameboy.) His voice was weak, the damaged suit straining his form, "Obsidian..." His head followed her as she rushed across the room to examine him, "I was so close. He was right there..." His fists clenched as he thought about how he had Opalite in his grasp, he had come so close. And yet... "Obsidian, I need more... I almost had them, but if I just had something... something stronger..." He was grasping at straws, but if he had some sort of stronger weapon or maybe some thicker armor, just something to tip the balance...
Dolomite sighed with relief as the gauntlets were released by the drones, the massive weight lifted off of him. With the support cables it was bearable, but without it was like lifting blocks of steel with your bare hands. He looked over at Obsidian again, "They nearly broke my mask, it'll need repairs as well." Turning his head back up to stare at the ceiling, waiting for whatever procedure had to happen. Chances were it wouldn't exactly be comfortable, and no matter what he was stuck like this (according to Obsidian) for the foreseeable future. But none of that mattered, all that he could think of were those two gems on his hit list...

Luckily for us that was just a prototype... thought Obsidian as she sees the automatons lift up Agate to the lab, where he can be "Reworked" again into a better S.T.A.N.D. "Don't worry about the mask Agate... Just try to stay alive.." she murmured, she ordered the automatons to place Agate down in the lab now that she had entered the lab. "I was able to dig deep into Opalite computer and found a new blueprint that could help us give an edge against him.." she lied, looking over the lab's tools controls she activated them once again. Claws sprung out from the floors below agate, expertly and with upmost precision managed to take off the cables that were damaged before and replaced them with "thinner" cables.
This is the beginning of Agate's true S.T.A.N.D. form
He lay on the table, relaxing as best he could. He wouldn't admit it but that fight had took a lot out of him, he took far too many direct hits. If he was to succeed in his quest for revenge he'd have to be far more careful, despite just wanting to smash both O and Carbide into the dirt. He felt the claws attach to his hands, his arm jolting a bit as the metal connected, raising a hand to examine the upgrade as the drones connected the new cables. So far nothing amazing, but these new blades would certainly help... "Anything else? I'm going to need more if I'm going to fight them both, and no doubt they'll find allies to join them. I need the upper hand." He rested his hand back back, glancing over the new cables. Not ideal, but hopefully these were harder to cut and wouldn't leave him defenseless.

"Don't worry Agate... i managed to find something within the ship's archives.." She lied, already Obsidian had planned a "improved" version of the prototype for the future, seeing how Agate is now, she might as well use it. The automatons placed a strange new machine(s) on Agate hand(s), the machine looked slightly massive to be handled with one hand, luckily the new thinner cables and new small engine core intertwined with each other and Agate gem. "I've read the data that came with this version... The cables are thinner and more study than the previous version, these blades are luckily for us, wireless and have massive range coverage, meaning you can swing them as far as you want and they'll never lose the connection to these machine(s)" She patted Agate hand(s)
"Although you have limited blades within these machines, the creativity is massive with this version alone!" she stated, "you can create shields, maces, beam rifles, and more!"
He waited until repairs are entirely done before pulling himself out of the chair, readjusting his systems to be as comfortable as possible. As it were it felt as if he was hanging an entire truck off of his body, the pain on his gemstone constant as it served to fuel his anger. His repaired visor glowed bright, raising a hand to point at a random wall in the room. Without any warning, or care for the state of the ship, he launched his bladed fingers out into the wall. They sunk easily into the metal, he wagered that he could probably cut a gem in half with a good enough shot. A second later the bladed retracted as if drawn by a magnet, 'reattaching' to his gauntlet.
He turned to Obsidian, "This should work. Now, I'm off again. If you have somewhere for me to go just send me a communcation and I'll do what I can. But I have some minor things to attend to." He turned to exit down the hallway and out the ship. Truth be told he wanted nothing more than to rest and recover, but something made him feel compelled to continue. As much as he didn't need to before Agate found he couldn't sleep, his mind playing a loop of memories and angry thoughts of the one who did this to him. Or at least, who he thought did it...

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
