Bloodstone sighed and nodded "True.." He stayed silent "It's just something I'm a bit afraid talking about, if you get my point" Octi couldn't help but clench his fists and sigh in frustration "She actually cares about me Morion. Morganite's one of the few gems that wants to make sure that I don't get hurt. Whether I'm a traitor or not doesn't seem to matter to her at all. I'm assuming most of the Loyals think that the other independents like me are traitors. Carbide sure hasn't taken a side yet, not to my knowledge at least. As for her feelings, I can tell you that she wants to remain loyal but just like me, she wants to keep Earth safe if possible. Neither of us want the Glassing to happen. And I could care less what side I take, but I'm going to do anything I can to protect her. She's not getting shattered on my watch." Octavian looked very, very serious when saying this
"Oh, yes, I must be frustrating... considering so far I was the only Gem that really cared about you or your well being! your so called friends and lovers tried to murder you and not really cared about your desires... and now? Now two of us cares about you! It must be reeeeeaaaal pain!"
He murmured "Don't delude yourself... Carbide is loyal. Not a rebel, nor an Independent... she is as loyal as her friend and mentor, Her Majesty's, White Diamond's Grand Inquisitor, his excellency, the exalted Opalite! She is his companion..."
Moiron shook his head
"We both know, as long as there are Rebels and Independents on Earth, Earth is doomed. As for Morganite, If you want to protect her, then forget this nonsense about independence... the Diamonds will not tolerate it. If Earth was a forgotten little planet, do you think I would care, what side you are on??? No. But Earth is in the focus of the Diamonds, and the are coming! And when they arrive, the planet is dead. Along with the rebels and the independents, and yes, their friends too!"
He explained calmly but as seriously as Bloodstone
"When the Diamonds arrive Bloodstone, your alligance could mean her death sentance, and you know why? Because her job as a Kindergarten worker would be to ensure, the new Gems are loyal and perfect! And if she failed to convince an undecided Gem, then she is worthless. It is harsh, and I don't like this either, but thanks to Rose Quartz, I can totally udnerstand the Diamonds' reasons..."
Morion grabbed Bloodstone's arm with deperate look in his silver eyes
"Please Bloodstone... you know I always wanted the best to you! Your happines was always important... I never was your enemy, hell I even promsied I will not hurt your friends, tho they tried to kill me, and always honored your desire to be free and independent! But those were different times... we both had the luxury of time. To stall this... but now? Sorry Bloodstone....the time is up. You were there when the Fusion told us, Pink Diamond is coming... and you can't protect her from her Diamond. "
"That's not what I meant!" Bloodstone sighed, pinching the bridge of his nose with one of his hands before yelling out in frustration and lashing out at a nearby rock, smashing it to bits before looking over at Morion, tears forming in his eyes "You think I don't know that?! YOU THINK I HAVENT THOUGHT OF THAT? I KNOW THAT PINK DIAMOND IS COMING. I HAVE GEMS I CARE ABOUT. AND PARDON MY WORD CHOICE, BUT I DONT GIVE A DAMN WHAT HAPPENS TO ME IN THE END OF THIS, BUT IM GOING TO MAKE SURE EVERY LAST ONE OF MY FRIENDS ARE SAFE. If Carbide is loyal, i'm okay with that, I just don't want to see her shattered. Same goes for you, and if I'm labeled a traitor, a rebel, fine. I'll deal with that in my own way. But if anyone ever lays a hand on any of the gems that are my friends, especially Morganite, then I will make sure to personally find them, hurt them as much as possible, and shatter them so they could never be put back together..." Octi took a breath, crying some more "I just don't want to lose any of my friends, okay?! IT DOESNT MATTER WHEN THE DIAMONDS ARE COMING, I JUST DONT WANT TO BE ALONE AGAIN!"
The Smoky Quartz watched Bloodstone Waited a bit Then stepped closer
Morion whispered, hugged the Berserker
"Everything will be fine..."
He summoned the dark wings Octavian loved so much, to hide themselves from the cold world, shelter from reality Just a bit Morion gave a kiss in to his hair
"I don't want to loose you... nor Morganite, she maybe hates me, but she is a nice Gem, cute in her own silly way... Carbide... Spider...Opalite... Chip... we were alone on this cursed, beautiful planet! Alone, but together...."
The embrace tightened
"Since we have met... you never were alone my dear Bloodstone... and you never will again, as long as I live. This was my other oath to you. Not made by words tho... but deeds! Pink Diamond is coming... the endgame is near. But this could be our chance my dear! Yellow Diamond turned her back on you, left you alone... but Pink Diamond is gentle and caring. I can see a brigh future for my Apprentice in her court... and... and you too! Humans always belived Bloodstones are healer gems, protectors! Maybe they are right and your place is in Pink Diamond's court, defending the Helaers, be a Guardian... protect Gems and places like that healer place you mentioned! You would be among kind Gems..." "How noble, and you remain alone... in White Diamond's servitude, and Blue Diamond's eye and wrath... fitting for a Monster... am I right darling?"
The Voice giggled in his head, but Morion ignored it
"If she have a... different Gem Fusion as her General, I am sure, Pink Diamond would give you a very wide breadth as long as you defend her Court... that is basically freedom and everything you dreamed about..."
Moiron gently lifted Bloodstone's head by his chin with one hand, other was around the Berserker's waist; looked in the tear drenched eyes, in the shadow of the wings
"Don't cry dear... It pains me to see you sad... and yet I am always the source of your despair"
Bloodstone sniffled and sighed as he buried his face into Morion's shoulder, letting the wings cover the two of them for a few minutes. He couldn't believe he was letting the emotions get ahold of him. Octi couldn't remember the last time he had ever broken down like this. He sighed and nodded, the things Morion was saying, about working for Pink Diamond..really and truly they weren't so bad if he had no real choice. He smiled a tiny bit when his head was lifted and sighed, hugging the Smokey Quartz "You are not always the source of my despair. If I ever cry about you that likely means I just care about you a lot. Emotions are okay for gems to have, you know that"
The Smoky Quartz still didn't had the courage to look in to Bloodstone's eyes again His voice was a whisper
"I am terrible when it comes to emotions. It is part of the job you see. For fifteen millenia I have worked alone, as an Infiltrator, infiltrated courts, colonies, Gem cliques and countless species, wearing masks and created false personalities, or just murdered the originals and replaced them. When my Diamond gave the orders, from watching Eye I became the Wrath, hunting down the targets as an efficient killer. I have danced that complex and complicated dance of the masquerade... never really had the luxury of real emotions. I had to separate myself from my new identity, and its feelings. Feelings, emotions, the mysteries of the heart were always just a weapons in my arsenal. Nothing real..."
Morion shook his head a bit
"Nothing.. not even me. Just a puff of smoke in the dark... then silence"
Finally gathered anough willpower to turn back to Bloodstone, his forhead rested against his
Bloodstone sighed "You can still have emotions though if you chose to. I'm sure the Diamonds would allow it. If nothing else, you're more than a puff of smoke to me. And I know you're real, as am I." He smiled as he gave Morion a soft headbutt, his version of the kiss and giggled. "I do hope that you'll be okay. I want to make sure that your sanity stays intact by the way. I have no intention of losing you to your insanity whatsoever." Octi leaned into the wings and sighed "Even if you're going to stay a guardian of sorts for me, you need to keep yourself safe. Even if..or when the diamonds come, you need to be in good shape"
"But I am fine... don't worry. And I am in a good shape. And, I think its okay to tell you, Carbide... also knows about the... well them"
The Smoky Quartz admited The Voices Te shadows in his mind, that Bloodstone saw for a moment
"She is... she can feel it. I think... And she IS Her Majesty's, White Diamond's Grand Inquisitor, his excellency, the exalted Opalite's companion and friend and... maybe his protegee, like Chip is mine. I know, if we ever become enemies, she could use this against me... even in the Court. But I am not afraid of her. I belive in Her Majesty's, White Diamond's Grand Inquisitor, his excellency, the exalted Opalite's wisdom. And I am sure, at the end, Carbide remains our side..."
He nodded with a sigh
"If not.. then.. anyhow, maybe it wouldn't be such a tragedy... If I can't serve my Diamonds and protect and defend you guys because my... mental condition, then it would be better to be shattered anyway"
"I see..." Bloodstone nodded, admittedly not surprised. Octi hadn't been aware of Carbide being an empath until the encounter with Gaspeite but did not mind that happening. He was honestly curious how his own mind was viewed, if there were multiple sides or not. "I doubt Carbide would ever use that against you...not unless she had a very good reason." He sighed and shook his head "You don't deserve to be shattered. I feel that if your mental condition, as you put it, prevents you from working right then it's not the end for you still. You could always stay with me if you wished, I wouldn't care about sides, if you needed shelter, I can provide it..if possible. After all, you've done that for me so many times" Octi smiled
"You... and lady Morganite of course, you two could move in to the Skyscraper! It would be safer for you two. I guess those two traitors moved out, abandoned you after the mess they made..."
Morion suspected something like that about the Blue Zoisite, Hunter and that insane morderous experiment, Yellow Peridot
"And your shack is at the edge of Starlight Swan's domain, Beach City is hers... it is quite dangerous for you and Morganite to live so close to the Crystal Temple my dear Bloodstone! Together we are stronger! And Empire City is a nice place..."
"Spider is living there too! You two have met before, am I right?"
"Hunter still lives there, we've calmed down for the most part" Bloodstone sighed and shrugged "As for Starlight Swan, I have yet to see her whatsoever. I feel like she's taken a sabbatical. And I keep telling you, the Crystal Temple is practically abandoned! There haven't been any signs of activity for months. I can handle myself" He flexed and smiled "Yeah, I met Spider a few days ago. She's a very nice gem, she did ask about our um...activities you and I had done" Octavian blushed a little and sighed "I have no idea how she's doing now. Hopefully she's not hurt at least..when I met her, she told me how there was a corrupted gem she had trapped in the caves under the beach..I do hope that all sorts out alright"
Bloodstone rolled his eyes and smiled. He just stayed quiet, letting Morion sing to his heart's content. Octi had gotten used to listening to the Smoky Quartz sing at random points, it wasn't so bad. Once he finished up, Octavian stood back up after having rested for a bit and smiled "Mind I ask if there was any particular reason why you did that? I'm just wondering what the whole inspiration was." Bloodstone sighed as they started walking again, their footsteps crunching the snow as Octi stuck close to Morion, simply for warmth as he admittedly did love being within the touch of the wings "Yes we can be good, but we're still disagreeing on subjects...of course I'll still respect you as long as we can be treated as equals. Not a bad thing, right?" Bloodstone looked down at the Smoky Quartz
"Some disagreement is not a bad thing. We are Gems. We adapt. Some argument only broadens the horizons!"
He hugged Bloodstone from the back
"The respect is mutual my dear Bloodstone! But we are not equals! You are better than me... I am okay with that. You are strong! I am fast, quick... you are a Berserker, a juggernaut! I am sneaking around, stabbing peaople in the back"
"You are a great ass-et..."
He squeezed Bloodstone butt^^
"Anyhow, I am more comfortable in the courts, wearing masks... dancing at the razor's edge, manipulating... or striking from the shadows... but as I said, we are good together, two side of the same coin..."
Bloodstone laughed and smiled "I wouldn't be surprised if you picked up a few songs with as much traveling that you have done." He blushed and sighed "Fine..whatever you say. Either way, I'm going to carry a level of mutual respect for you." Octi blushed even more when his butt was squeezed and looked back at Morion "Was that really necessary? I get what you did there by the way, I'm aware of what the humans tend to call their rears sometimes.." He rolled his eyes and chuckled, ruffling Morion's hair "I swear your sense of humor surprises me sometimes. For a gem that can be serious when trying to serve the diamonds, you sure know how to pull off a good pun"
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
