Peanut was running out of energy quick from maintaining the clones "Where in the world did malachite go?" Peanut questioned not seeing the gem in sight 'I guess Spinel and I have to fight this thing now.' Peanut stood from his spot behind the fountain and almost fell right back down but managed to stay standing. "Man those clones took a lot out of me." Peanut stood for a moment devising a plan in his head to make the Corrupted gem flee or get scared off hm... Peanut figured out a very risky but almost sure fire way to scare the bird away. Peanut had started forming what appeared to be a giant Spinel larger than the corrupted gem, after completing the clone peanut had made it pull out its weapon "c'mon bird brain show me what you're made of heheh..." Peanut had put the giant Spinel into a fighting stance hoping to fake it out and force it to flee. Peanut could only hold the clone for a short period of time and was hoping it would run soon.
Seraphite nodded to Malachite and followed the other two into the area that peanut was trying his best to fend off the monster alone. As they got closer, The wind grew stronger as bits of plant life like leaves and twigs flew in the opposite direction of the in flight enemy. Seraphite coundnt help but feel a rush of adrenaline and dread as the bird directed its attention more towards the new three gem threats. Something about this moment felt familiar to him though, the feel of taking a stand against an enemy to fight for their lives. it was both thrilling and scary at the same time to not have any idea how this was going to end.
Even though they had more pressing matters to attend to, he saw that Ijolite looked nervous. "Hey, youre going to do just fine." Seraphite spoke, not knowing if that was the truth or not. "I may have just met you, but ill have your back if you need it." He spoke as he took out 7 of his daggers and lined them up in the air in front of himself using his telekinesis in preparation to fight.
"Woah!" Ijolite followed Malachite, not like she had any other option. "..Alright then. I'll... try not to." she gave a quick nod following the gem that was dragging her arm. She observed her surroundings a bit closer while following the gem, seeing the giant bird. There were also two other gems, Peanut and Seraphite.
She smiled and nodded towards Seraphite as she heard his words, being fascinated by the dagger telekinesis as she had a very similiar power however with water. I have no idea what's going on.. But I like it!
Looking at the giant Spinel clone Ijolite got impressed by Peanut's power. I wish I could do that..
"Wait.. where are we going?" Ijolite asked curiously, since she was being headed for the warp pad. "Aren't we going to fight that giant bird?"

OOC: seraphite I know, IT;S SO S A A A A A A A D IC: The corrupted Gem spread out its wings, in an attempt to be larger than the Spinel clone. It stayed firm, being a clone, and the bird looked confused. it let out a loud KA-KAW and rose into the air. the clone was not affected. It finally glanced up at the lightning filled sky, seemingly weighing its options. it rose up higher, flapped its wings and turned to leave, but not without a glance at Peanut that seemed to say, You think you and your giant banana-wielding warrior have won, but I'll be back. I'll mash you up into peanut butter and spread it on this fool's banana.
"It was... successful?" Spinel watched as the bird flew from the area. "The idea looked like it would have only worked on ignoramus. It appears that when a corrupt Gem enters it's monstrous form, it loses intelligence... How intriguing... Good job, peanut." He spoke slowly, as if he was talking to a very small child. (In reality, he was just shocked that the plan worked.)
Spinel reached into Jeffry's bag and pulled out a glass bottle. The bottle was about 20x50 mm, and was pretty much only enough for one person. "Hm..." He was confused, as his hand couldn't get to the water. It was as if some force was stopping his hand from entering the fountain's base. Almost instantly, he realized the reason. 'If that corrupt Gem couldn't enter the fountain, and now I can't...' "You know what... I don't need any of the water. It should be saved for those who need it." He pulled his hand back, and put the glass back into his bag. He turned to peanut. "So, wanna go get some of that 'Iced Cream' the humans always talk about?"
(OOC: The only person who could have a hint that Spinel is corrupt is Peanut for obvious reasons. Sorry if this sounds rude, but please use common sense in this matter.)
Peanut was panting from exhaustion "y-yeah that sounds... great." Peanut fell to the ground escaped into his gem all he saw was darkness. and heard a voice... 'poor, poor peanut such a pathetic weakling. Who would ever want to be friends with you? you're only good for one thing hahaha, cannon fodder why not become useful and fall... to the corruption.' Peanut recognized the voice, it was Peanut himself except... darker and much more distort. Peanut saw himself and then it changed into what appeared to be his corrupted form, He ran as fast as he could but he couldn't get away from it. "No! Please I don't want to be corrupt! I want to be myself and stay with my friends!" 'Come Peanut why not become useful for once?' On the outside Peanuts gem was starting to become cloudy and was becoming corrupt. Peanut was tired and worn out, *Pant*Pant* "I guess... this is it." as darkness consumed him.
Malachite turned around, seeing the gem collapse in the corner of his eye. He saw the hazy gas around the gem. Malachite's eyes widened "Oh no..." He teleported in front of the gem. Picking him up in the wedding carry and took him towards the warp pad, laying his down gently. "What do we do! I've never seen a gem get corrupted before!" He could see the corruption covering his body. If the gem succumbed to it then he would surley become corrupted. Malachite shook the gems shoulders "Come on Peanut,Say something! Look up at me! Do not close your eyes! You are going to be alright" The gem reaffrimed to peanut, when truthfully, He didn't know if he was going to make it out of here un-corrupted
Spinel wasn't the best at acting, but he was good enough. He ran over to Peanut's Gem and kneeled down next to it. "I know Peanut, he's strong. He can make it through this. If he somehow can't, I'll contain him." He stared into the Gem, watching it cloud. Did this really happen when Gems became corrupt? 'I always thought that mine was naturally cloudy...' "I wonder what's going on in there. What he's thinking, what he's feeling... I wonder if he's even feeling anything at all... Does he have control?" Spinel found himself speaking words he actually meant. "He has control. Like I said, Peanut is a strong Gem. He can handle himself. If not, I'll do everything I can to revert the corruption." That last bit was acting again, but the other part he truly meant. "I know he has control..."
Seraphite withdrew his weapon back into his gem and watched as the others ran to peanut to aid him. Seeing what corruption did to a gem made him wonder if there was any way to stop it. however, since he never met peanut before; He couldn't help but to feel a bit void of feeling during this time. The thought of himself not freaking out about the corruption scared him, but how was he supposed to feel about this situation that was in front of him? His face gave a very distant look in the eyes, not grieving nor thrilled to have another of his own race begin to be taken by the plague that was the corruption.
"If we could contact homeworld even they might not know anything about what has been happening to gems on earth." Seraphite kicked a bit of dirt, trying to think of a way he could help.
*Cough* *Cough* "Wh-where am I?" Peanut awoke to an open field with flowers of every color imaginable stretched to what seemed to be an endless field of colored petals "Hello!?" "Anyone there?" He heard it again, that voice from before 'Lost little Peanut? Why not rest for a while and sleep...' Everything was changing around Peanut the flowers were dying and changing to a black tar like color, wilting away becoming husk of their former beauty. Peanuts corrupted form showed itself and out stretched its hand 'Come Peanut... become strong, join the corrupted' Peanut could barely stand "I-I but if I go my friends..." Peanut would never join to the corruption he thought, would he? 'What friends? you know those gems don't really like you, they just want someone to become the decoy when things get rough for them.' "N-no! that's not true they wouldn't do that..." Peanut went down on his knees tears falling to the lifeless petals of the death ridden flowers 'Oh no?' at the wave of the corrupted Peanuts staff the large corrupted bird from the fountain emerged from the field of dead flowers which seemed to be chasing... Spinel and Malachite!?! "Hold on guys i'm coming!" Peanut ran to his friends "We can take this thing together!" Spinel and Malachite laughed "Oh Peanut why would be want to work with you?" Spinel mocked as Malachite picked Peanut up and threw him to the bird, "No!" Nothing, Pitch black, Peanut was alone with nothing but his thoughts "I'm alone... no one will save me, I guess, this is the end Peanut said with a smile as he started to drift into unconsciousness falling to the corruption, but not before he heard a faint voice echo in the black void "Come on Peanut,Say something! Look up at me! Do not close your eyes! You are going to be alright!" it was... Malachite. No it had to be another Trick Peanut thought, "I know he has control..." Another voice... Spinel, Peanut stood up on what felt like solid ground yet there continued to be blackness all around him. "I have had enough! I will not fall to this corruption!" Peanut pulled out his weapon and made clones of Malachite and Spinel, "With my friends, I can overcome anything!" The corrupted Peanut appeared and just stood there staring at Peanut. Peanut held up his weapon and fired the strongest blast of energy he could fathom "I am not corrupted!" The corrupted faded into dust along with the void of darkness revealing a bright light. Peanut had re-appeared from his gem and was staring at Spinel along with Malachite and another gem he had not met. *Cough* "Oh hey Spinel, iced cream sounds great..." Peanut said as he fell asleep with exhaustion and happiness ((OOC: Sorry it was so long, I meant to make this what the virus inside of Peanut seemed like, similar to fighting something along the lines of an inner demon which was Peanuts self doubt and terror of losing his only friends.)) (P.s. If you guys believe I should not have controlled the gems inside of Peanuts mind the way I did just tell me and I can edit it ^_^)
"-Wait where are you going?" she questioned Malachite as the gem ran towards Peanut, probably having her statement ignored. This doesn't make sense! First this gem wants me to follow him into the warp pad, now he just leaves me here! Ijolite thought to herself.
Ijolite would just have been staring at the whole scene from the warp pad this whole time in silence. (( Considering that Malachite probably stopped grabbing her. )) What just... happened? she thought to herself, a bit shocked to see the gem which Malachite had carried over towards the warp pad.
"Is everything alright?" she asked worringly, looking at the gems in front of her. *Sigh* Ofcourse it wasn't alright, Ijolite. That gem almost got corrupted! she argued with herself. She slowly approached the gems closer, observing each and every one of them closely. Especially Peanut, who had almost been corrupted. So this is what happens when you socialize.. Everyone almost dies! Horray! she thought sarcastically.
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
