It was a quiet day, The breeze blew lightly in the summer air but it was quickly hushed by the fountain's water streams dropping into the fountain's base. The statue has remained untouched and shimmered in the daylight. Just then a figure came into distance of it.
It was Malachite, who has come to the fountain to relax after the long battle between corrupted gems. Bruises and cuts covered his sore body as he limped to the edge. He jumped onto the fountain rim and let his body lean forward and fall in. The water engulfed him and in seconds his body was healed . He lifted himself up feeling rejuvenated from the water. But...Somethings wrong,Just then the whole area went quiet. Not a sound could be heard except for the fountains water streaming and Malachite's breathing. Something isn't right here Malachite thought to himself. Every bone in his body told to run, jump, scream, Do something! But he ignored it afraid of what would happen if he did.
Peanut stepped off of the warp pad and pulled out a small notebook he found while in town, he kept all daily activities inside the journal and today he went to collect water from Roses' fountain. Peanut made his way through the field and noticed something odd... the air felt cold around him and made his stomach churn, his mind was telling him to get back onto the warp pad and run but, he rememberd how Spinel had told him to be braver so he continued to the fountain. When Peanut arrived at the fountain the feeling got worse and he noticed a gem inside the fountain just... waiting. Peanut decided the best approach was to see what was going to happen or wait for this gem to leave, so Peanut sad behind a bush, held his breath and stood still making him go invisible.
Spinel had heard of the power possessed by the water of Rose's Healing Fountain. He had been there before, but different means called him before. Now, he was here to collect some of the water for emergencies. As he walked towards the fountain, he saw a figure in the fountain. Curious, he walked quicker to learn about this figure.
As he approached the fountain, he saw that the figure was quite tense. Did this character know about him? Only one way to find out. Spinel walked closer and sat on the rim of the fountain. "Good afternoon, isn't it?" Spinel reached into his satchel and pulled out his new pet lizard Jeffery and placed it on his shoulder. "It's a nice day for a swim, isn't it?" He said jokingly.
Malachite quickly jerked himself to look at the unknown gem who arrived. With a quick shake of his head to let water out he looked at the unknown stranger "My name's Malachite...Who are you and what are you doing here" He said in a stern voice. "Because you are defiantly not a gem that's from around here" This was looking pretty awkward for Mal, Sitting in the fountain only to find this fellow with a lizard, wait, A lizard... He thought himself before looking at it "What are you doing with an earth reptile?" He asked. So many questions were to be asked about this visitor. He sighed and got up from the water and shook his body off from the water once more.
Last Edit: Apr 4, 2015 3:35:29 GMT by Malachite: WHY MUST I EDIT SO MUCH!! MEEEEEEHHHHHHH
Peanut waited quietly in the bush waiting for something to happen, then he noticed another gem appear onto the scene it was... Peanut made a sudden breathe and realized it was Spinel! one of Peanuts... friends something new to Peanut. Peanut rushed towards Spinel and leaped greeting Spinal with a hug. "Spinal! What are you doing here?" Peanut realized his actions and jumped off of the poor un-suspecting Spinal "U-um sorry" Peanut looked to the ground embarrassed but soon realized his goal of being here "Oh right!" Peanut had pulled out a small glass vial from his pocket. He ran over to the fountain and filled the bottle with the healing liquid getting that same cold feeling again that sent shivers down his spine knowing something bad was going to happen.
A bright gem stands on top of the fountain, seemingly unnoticed by anyone else. she jumps into the water, and makes a great splash everywhere. several seconds pass, as the other gems watch in horror. finally, the gem re-emerges. she gets out, dripping wet, and looks at the other gems. "Hm?" she asks, seemingly confused at their quizzical stares. "Oh, This? I think I've been corrupted, but was unsure as if i was or if it was something else. I hoped that getting some Rose Water would speed up the process." They all waited for a second, but nothing happened. "Hm. Maybe just some more time." the Gem looked around and spotted Jeffrey on Spinel's shoulder.
OOC:Controlling other gems i see doctor, You sly dog.
Malachite jumped at the word corrupted and teleported out of the water a few yards away from them. "I should have known that i was dealing with corrupted gems" He snarled. Still dripping water from his clothes he ignored this. "what are the corrupted doing here?" He asked reached for his back and summoned his Chain-Scythe. He swung it above his head before jabbing the blade into the ground. Malachite was ready for a fight. Seeing the corrupted invading a holy place like his made him infruriated. He saw peanut as no threat to him. But the other two were more than likley going to be able to fight back.
"Oh, I'm Spinel. I'm not from Beach City, but I've been all over the world. Also, I'm here for some of the water just in case I need it. I've been hurt beyond repair a couple of times and I'm pretty sure I'm gonna need this stuff sooner or later." Spinel stood cracked his back. "Oh, this reptile? His name's Jeffery. I found him near my house. Cute little guy, isn't he?"
He began to pet Jeffery, but was stopped when a sudden force hit him. It took him a second to react, but he realized it was Peanut, and old friend he met on the docks of Beach city. He laughed and saw Peanut fill a bottle with some of Rose's healing water. "I'm here for the same reason as you, my friend. Also, no need to apologize." He reached into the fountain and pulled Jeffery out of the water, who had fallen into the fountain when Peanut hugged him. After placing Jeffery back onto his shoulder, another Gem jumped into the water.
"Oh, This? I think I've been corrupted, but was unsure as if i was or if it was something else. I hoped that getting some Rose Water would speed up the process. Hm. Maybe just some more time."
Spinel chuckled. "You know, I can tell if you're corrupt or not. All you have to do is ask." He suddenly noticed the way she was looking at Jeffery, so he grabbed Jeffery off his shoulder and put him back into his satchel. "Also, please don't look at Jeffery that way..."
"Why, that sounds nice. Better than the other Gems have been trying to cheat on me." the Gem shuffles nervously, unsure as of what to do. "so, uh, My name's Citrine..." She shuffles again. "So, do I just stand here, or, what?" She looks again at Spinel's satchel, with a hungry look in her eyes and her hands behind her back, obviously to keep her from grabbing the satchel from Spinel and tearing it open, letting the contents fall upon the floor. "That's a cute little lizard you got there. What's his name? his species?" she leaned in closer to the satchel, breathing heavily as as she stared closer with her cold, hungry, gleaming yellow eyes. She was hungry. and Masked lizards soup was just the thing she wanted.
Spinel, a bit uneasy, put his satchel behind him, and tried to calm Malachite down. "We have no reason to get aggressive yet. Please settle down." As he looked into Citrine's eyes he answered her questions. "Yes, you just stand there." A chill was sent down his spine when she asked about his lizard. "His name is Jeffery, and I don't know his species." He began processing everything she remembered, everything about her, and so on. This process only took a few seconds. "You're not corrupt. However, if you feel that the process is taking place, I would dip my Gem into the water."
He still felt uneasy about this Gem, but he couldn't place his finger on it. He knew everything about her, as he always kept everything he knew about each Gem in a mental file just in case, but something was just off. Maybe it's about how she wants to eat Jeffery. He put his hand into his bag and held onto Jeffery, just to make sure he would be safe. "So, Peanut, how has Beach City been treating you?"
Peanut was confused about the current actions of Spinel "Are we just ignoring the person who is going to try to kill us!?!" Peanut was as nervous as he ever was and ran over to Malachite "P-please calm down I do not believe now is the time for violence, especially not at the sacred fountain, if you wish to fight I will not run, and I will not try to talk you out of your decision but I will not allow violence at this fountain!" Peanuts heart was racing with anxiety 'oh gosh i'm dead, i'm dead, i'm dead'. Peanut had also remembered that other soon to be corrupted gem, "And you!, how dare you bring your filthy corruption to this fountain." Peanut pulled out his weapon heart racing, "Leave immediately or I will not hesitate to fight you! Right Spinel?" Peanut looked hopefully towards his friend Spinel waiting for his answer.
OOC: Thank you! Malachite's finally getting all the attention he deserves! Looks like Peanut isn't so bad after all
Malachite lowered his guard at peanut seeing he meant no harm towards anyone. He nodded his head "You're right, Now's not the time" he agreed. He quickly stepped in front of peanut as if he was guarding him. Mal picked up his weapon once more. "Like he said, You will die if you do not leave this sacred place this instant" Malachite said with anger in his voice. In a quick motion he swung his weapon above his head and sent the blade towards Citrine, "This will be a warning for tthis corrupted freak to know what she's dealing with here" He thought to himself
"Jeez, hold your Doritos. I'll be done in a second."
and with that, Citrine walked over to the fountain, but something held her back. there was an invisible wall to keep the corrupted out. "Smart little Rose. an invisible barrier to keep the corrupted out. I like your style. too bad you're dead." and with that comment, Citrine retreated to her gem. she was in no harm, none at at all. but the Corruption was complete. a second later, a yellow shadow formed around the gem. it was humanoid, at first, but the arms turned into wings, the head bent at an angle and grew a beak, and the legs grew sharp talons. The transformation was complete. and there it sat, larger than the fountain, a large yellow bird with batty wings, it let out an ear-piercing shriek.
Malachite grinned devilishly, "oh-ho-ho, You're gonna wish you never said that, You vermin!" Malachite said, He was surprised by the transformation of this gem but erased the thought from his mind and concentrated. His chain-scythe dissipated into thin air and Mal summoned his spiked Warhammer from his gem. He a quick motion he swung the weapon over his head and slammed it against the ground breaking it down the middle. He chuckled before resting it on his shoulder. "You know what, I wanna see what you got, Come at me little birdie." He said. Looks interesting, Corruption can turn a gem into an avian. Looks like it's adapting to the earth's environment then. Oh well i hope this thing knows who its dealing with.
"Huh..." Spinel remarked. "I was wrong... That's rare." He smiled and summoned a thick, dark purple fog to engulf the the fountain and the area around it. He breathed in the fog and sighed. The fog wasn't toxic or anything, it just takes some getting used to. (You can see about a foot in front of you before the fog completely obscures vision.) After summoning the fog, he ran over to Peanut and crouched next to him. "Peanut, this might get bad. If you're going to stay, you should either stick with me or stick with this Malachite." He stood, summoned his chakram, slightly thinned the fog, and threw his chakram at Citrine. He then summoned his khopesh and got into a defensive stance. He always found the idea of giant birds terrifying, but they aren't as scary as he previously thought.

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
