The Smoky Quartz watched the other Gem, Obsidian, as she walked out Her story... was interresting White Diamond sent her squad here... and they left her behind? But whats happened with the team? The ship? Something was missing... But it was understandable Obsidian withheld information from the Smoky Quartz. After All, she was a new Gem in Empire City! She was a new Gem on Earth for that matter... her caution was not only understandable, but praiseworthy! Morion always respected Gems with survival instincts, like his young protegee, Fire Opal And it was a nice test to Bloodstone too! A chance to prove himself, to help Loyal Gems... and possibly, Round One in their mind games^^ The Smoky Quartz enjoyed his drink with a smile... it was a nice evening so far!
"Hey! This is Obsidian! I work..well worked under white Diamond!" Came a female voice. "Right now I'm at Empire City!" Disco music could be heard faintly in the background. It became hard to hear her voice, but with difficulty Octavian could make out pretty much everything the gem said. "I Understand that you are a friend of Carbide right? Well I'm trying to contact her, so I was wondering if she was available." Obsidian Said. "Also, I have a gift for Pink Diamond when she arrives! it's a bunch of corrupted gems! They're In bubbles right now at my apartment in Jersey. So, is there any way I could contact Carbide? If you could give me her number or something I'd like that."
"I see...Empire City...did you by chance talk with a gem named Morion? I'm only curious as to how you got my number" Octavia sat down, listening to Obsidian "Yes, I'm a friend of Carbide. Unfortunately she's not available, she was here a few days ago but did not say where she was going." She felt really bad, but was wondering what this gem wanted with Carbide "That's nice that you have a gift for Pink Diamond..why are you telling me this? And I don't remember if I have her number or not, I don't believe so. However, if I do end up finding out where she is, I'll text you and let you know as soon as I can"
"Oh, well uh yeah...he gave me your number. Yeah of course you'd be curious" Obsidian tightened her coat, feeling cold air around her. "Uh, not available? Are you sure you have no way of contacting her? I Really need to speak to her...oh, well Ignore told you that because I think she works under pink diamond or something. I was just hoping that she could help me find Opalite, I need to see him, he might be able to help me talk to My Diamond. ...Oh! Alright! Thanks, I`ll be listening!" Obsidian put her IPhone back. She proceeded to walk back toward the party club. She thought she saw someone run behind her, but when she turned around nobody was there. She tightened her coat, uncomfortable and walked back into the safety of the club. "Uh Morion, it might be a while, what should we do now?" It had become unnaturally cold, she could see her breath.
Octavia listened, curious. Before she got the chance, she sighed and let Obsidian hang up. It was obvious to her that this gem was not aware of just what was going on. Bloodstone had yet to run into this..Opalite, but she had a good idea of who it was. It must have been the supreme, magnificent..whatever it was the Morion used to describe him, but this was one of the leading Homeworld gems on Earth as a whole. A very powerful figure, but could he ever get into communication with White Diamond? That was a very big possibility..she sighed and texted Obsidian, letting her know that Carbide did not work for Pink Diamond, that she was a heavy scout who was technically under Blue and Yellow.
The smoky Quartz waited patiently for Obsidian to come back
"Beg your pardon?"
Morion emptied his glass
He looked the other Gem with his silver eyes "Well... I have a City to protect. Empire City is my domain, and I want to keep it clear from corrupted monsters, insane Gems and rebels and traitors! Not to mention my other... interest I have to protect."
But the poor purple Gem was in trouble, it was clear
"I can't help you to find Her Majesty's, White Diamond's Grand Inquisitor, his excellency, the exalted Opalite... sorry. If I would know where he is, or a way to contact Carbide... trust me I would tell you. But you are welcome in my City! Enjoy its safety!"
Obsidian's face fell. Then emotion returned to her face, she had an idea. "You think I could wait for her at your tower? You said she comes there right?" Obsidian said hopefully. "Well of course, only if that's okay with you" Obsidian started shivering uncontrollably. She looked at the sky. "Oooh! It's so cold! It should be snowing! Is it always this cold around he-" Before Obsidian could finish her sentence something slammed into her, knocking her out of the club. It was what appeared to be a giant block of ice. Following the direction it came from one could see the culprit. A monster that was larger than an elephant but resembled a polar bear stood in the street across from the club. It had what looked like several Icicles protruding from it's skin, it's teeth were icicles, but the most shocking fact was...it had two heads! One of the heads however had a light blue gem. It was a corrupted gem! It shot an icicle toward Obsidian. She had recovered from it's first attack but wasn't ready to dodge the projectile. Her eyes widened as she saw it coming toward her.
The Polar bear monster tried to throw him off of it's back. Similar to a horse trying to buck off his rider it frothed about trying to get rid of it's assailant. Obsidian made an attempt to move, but it was too late, the icicle stabbed her right in her gem. She was expecting to shatter, but she didn't black out. She hadn't even poofed. She got up and hoped that the Icicle had missed, but looking at her gem she learned what had really happened. She was cracked. She unwillingly shapeshifted into a chibi version of herself. "Oh my gosh! oh my gosh!" She yelled in a high pitched, squeaky voice. This had happened before, it was the side effect when she cracked. She ran behind the chunk of ice, hoping not to be seen. The Monster didn't wait for Morion to have an opening. The icicles on it's back shot out at him, hoping to impale it's attacker.
The Smoky Quartz hissed, when he saw from the corner of his eye the impaled Obsidian And then her transformation This beast was a worthy opponent With nasty, nasty tricks... This little "accident" was usefull tho'... from time to time Morion used to realese a Monster or two near his City, just to fight with them, so the Humans of the City could saw their guardian and the dangers he protected them from... When the corrupted beast impaled him, that was a nasty surprise... but the assassin had his own nasty surprises Like turning his whole body to smoke for a moment, a smoke "blink" to escape, then reform, and stab and slice the monster several times with his scimitar
The Gem monster seemed for a second like it had taken no effect from the blade. It gave a low grunt as if it was scoffing. However, the moment after it exploded into smoke, poofing and releasing a gem. The Second that this happened the cold air returned to normal, the difference was apparent because it was going to be a fairly warm night at the city.
Obsidian was glad that the monster was gone, but she didn't want to be seen. Now that the monster was defeated he would probably check to see if she was okay. She decided to use her powers to vanish from sight, but unfortunately she couldn't use them while cracked! The chunk of ice guarding her from his sigh vanished the next moment, unable to remain there while it's creator had been defeated.
The smoky quartz landed, when the corrupted beast poofed and grabbed its Gem, bubbling it, then dissmissed the greyis balck buble with the wave of his hand When Morion looked around, noticed the chibi Gem
The assassin voice was a bit cold
"You forgot to mention, this beast was following you to MY CITY... hunted you! I am sure, you have a good explanation, why was you so... forgetful! But I supose, you was not aware of this corrupted monster was after you..."
Moiron calmed down
"Are you okay? That icicle imppaled you! And You are looking a bit... smaller. I have a bad news for you! You see as I said, there is a War going on. And I think the first targets of the Crystal Gems were the builder/engineer Bismuths and the technician Peridots. So far I have only met one Peridot on Earth, a Yellow Peridot, an insane monster, one of Yellow Diamond's crazy Experiments... Actually it makes sense. If I were a Rebel, my first priority would be to kill the ones who could repair the damages my sabotages causes! So we are out of Peridots at the moment, we can't repair... well anything. And... in a war eliminating the opponent's Healers are the first piority."
"Er...sorry about the monster...but I didn't see it on the way in...are you sure it was following me?" She replied in her humorously squeaky voice. "And eh...my gem has cracked once before. I know a place where it can heal.." She then remembered his duties in Empire city. "Uh..is there anyone near who can come with me? I can't get there alone, even if monsters wouldn't attack me..." She said. She flipped her stubby arms around. "I can't exactly fight like this..." Someone in a coat ran down the road behind them, Obsidian didn't notice, facing toward Morion. The person running put something shiny into their pocket. The object appeared to be a gem, before anyone could react he went around a corner.
Obsidian's face lit up. She wasn't going to be cracked for much longer. "Well it kinda looked like a fountain.." she said proudly. Then she remembered the bad news. "Well, I think the crystal gems own in, because a lot of people who were out of uniform were there... But I met some gems who helped me into the fountain! The Crystal gems must be pretty dumb I guess, then I just sorta walked out!" Obsidian thought hard about this, was she just lucky? If the crystal gems were against them, why did they let her have access to the fountain? Would they be as kind to Morion? Now that she thought about it, her chances of being healed weren't so great.
Melody: how are you doing? Are you going to make a character in here?

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
