The monologue that Morion just had was very enlightening, what was happening seemed more serious than what she thought.
"Alright. She says firmly The situation is very unstable, then. It's better to stay on our side, in a defensive state than going kamikaze and lose loyal soldiers. It is good that we have a powerful warrior on our side. Rose Quartz left Earth not knowing that the gems using her fountain would be used by the loyal gems, in general at least.
Gaspeite ponders for a moment, thinking about the fountain.
"I can help protecting the fountain if the need is there, I am ready for anything. Until Her Masjesty Pink Diamond arrives, holding our advantages is the best we can do for now."
"But we are Gems, we adapt. 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! I have to give them that one. It was a smart move! Like the elimination of the Healers. Actually If the Rebels would be a bit more organized, the Loyals were in deep truble!"
"So I took the liberty to gather the most promising Gems and give them a purpose! After the Crystal Gems claimed Beach City it was a logical move to set up a base in a city... but I already told you about these..."
He smiled a bit
"when will Her Majetsty, Pink Diamond arrives Fusion Gaspeite? If it is not a secret..."

Gaspeite looks slightly angled down, horrified about the losses inside their community because of the crystal gems... many soldiers, engineers and scientists, loyal gems had been killed, and that for freedom? That's anarchaic, to say the least.
"I think I already told you, Pink Diamond decided that if the last convoy didn't return with information about Earth, she would take action herself, but the time and details were confidential. Our ship was supposed to arrive to Homeworld some human days ago, so count on the fact that the wait will not be of a very long matter from now. This information should not get into the knowledge database of any other gems, as it could compromise her arrival, even though there isn't an exact date.
Gaspeite searches the sky, firstly searching for the moon, staring at it for a couple of seconds, then searching for the Homeworld star and staring at it continuously. It was so far, she was furious that the warp pads were not working.
"It is understandable, the time and details are confidental."
"Eventually she will arrive; and this is why our top piorty is now to find out, why the Gems ships just crash, not land... Black Start Diopside was actually lucky I think, her ship only lost the warp drive. So she is stranded on Earth with us. Funny, and she was sent here to help the survivng Gems.
Morion shook his head
"For the moment, there are four ships on Earth that are capable of flying. Yellow Peridot's, an insane experiment's ship, Blue Zoisite's, a traitor's scout ship, Black Star Diopside's bounty ship.... and Lady Obsidian's ship, who tried to murder Her Majesty's, White Diamond's Grand Inquisitor, his excellency, the exalted Opalite thus the public enemy number one on Earth. She is living in her own little world, angering Crystal Gems and Independendts alike... but her ship is the most advanced one on Earth, well armed, well shieleded and her drone and robonoid "army" is considerable... Knowing her obsession with experiments, I suggest be careful Fusion Gaspeite; if Lady Obsidian ever finds you, she will take you apart to study you, examine you... But if you wants to talk with her yourself, I have a communicator that she gave me while we were allies, you could use that to reach her.

"If Gem ships crash, there's a lot of chance that the reason is coming from the Crystal gems, they would have found someway to have ships crash.
Gaspeite had to imagine the ships in her head, interested when Morion was talking about the Obsidian.
"A gem that went rogue against everyone, then? That's strange. But I doubt she would want to study me, since I am a simple fusion. To answer you, no, I do not wish perticularly to talk to her, at least for now. But I must ask, are you sure that you understand well the experiment topic. Pink Diamond did not have a fusion to just stay there, the thing is that she is monitoring me to see any stability in my mind, over a long-term fusion, meaning for well around ten thousand years, gathering data and testing when needed. And even then, unfusing is not a problem for me, we did not chose but were ordered to do so, even though my oders were that only Pink Diamond shall order me to unfuse. But that apart, when would I be able to meet Chip? Fire Opals fly, don't they? It could be easy for him to find me while I am exploring this city and around it."
"Yes... It is quite possible, the Crystal Gems do have a cannon, or generator... or maybe just dumb luck. A dozen ship crashed by this "dumb luck"... "
Morion forwned "As I said, it is a piortiy, but in the same time we have to dance this complicated dance... not to alienate our Independent borthers and sisters. It is... frustrating
The smoky quartz rubbed the birdge of his nose Then listened to the Fusion
"To be honest Fusion Gaspeite... I don't really care about that experiment. About "you". Your were lucky to be honest your pod's logs confirmed your claim and your identity... A "Homeworld fusion made from different Gems and a Diamond ordered it" - he shook his head - honestly, nobody belived that. As I said, you were lucky..."
"Yes... Chip can fly, and since he is a Protector, he is always patrolling the skies... well, when he is not playing some videogames"

Gaspeite though now, and got to a good reasoning. She never thought that it was hard to believe that she was a loyal gem, just because she knew she was, and it was simple. After all, everyone thinks that fusions are only rebel origins, and it was damn right. Gaspeite personally likes fusions, because she was one, but if they were a Crystal Gem fusion, no matter the interesting facts and matters, it was her enemy, and that could not be broken from her mind. She didn't simply order the Diamonds there, it was just because her own mindset was set on the whole rebellious gem thing.
"Good to know that we have an overwatcher. Ehh... video-games... Is this a form of human... entertainment?"
"To be fair, Human games are actually traning programs to condition their young ones and teach them how to fight and kill! Or learn about strategy in a primitive simulation. They are not just for fun, but really they are quite educational! Even for us... you could always learn something new, even if you are a member of an immortal shapeshifter conquerer race..."
Moiron smiled a bit
"The best way to learn about a culture is the games their youngs entertain themselves... Basically there are two kinds of video games on Earth. The ones about killing, murder, weapons, solving riddles, navigate... soldier traning in nutshell, and the other, about strategy, city planning resource managment and commanding armies. The passtimes of the aristocrats.

"After all, humans had a lot of wars against themselves in the past, so it is not a big surprise that they would make good war simulations. And who knows, controlling humans in a simulation might be fun. I'll make sure to try it, I will ask Chip to show me those video games, those look interesting."
She waits for a second, looking down the balcony for not even a second, thinking that she would go off now, she was happy that she got to settle off on some things with Morion, even if the character, in some way, was more of a social blank slate. You couldn't know very much of Morion apart from his status in Empire city and his ideals, but it's hard to picture something else than a gem with powerful language, and that holds their ideas straight, usually affecting others in only a sentence.
"Alright, well, I'll get down there again, finish my plan of the city, I'll try to search for Chip whenever I can. This was quite an enlightening conversation, though, I'll let you back to your thinking, or meditation, now.".
"Before you go! I don't know how the Fusion's mind works... but not long ago I had a nasty "visitor" while meditating. A dream-walker, so to speak. A Gem, hiding somewhere on Earth... a cracked Gem, with an Artifact, made out of Shards. He made it, or at least he claims he did. Usually I am happy to find new Gems, new, possible allies against the Crytsal Gems, but in this case, I think we have a problem. All of us! This Gem have the ability to enter other Gems mind, or dreams... I think I don't need to tell you, how... dangerous this is! I don't know if you ever heard of Lady Musgravite? Her Majesty's, White Diamond's Grand Inquisitor, his excellency, the exalted Opalite is the highest ranking Gem on Earth... now. But before that? It was Lady Musgravite, or Lady Thabitha she liked to call herself; she was almost a Diamond! Strong and high ranking, influental mistress... I think the Crystal Gems killed her. She disappeared. Anyhow, she had the ability to enter other Gem's head... and I experienced several times, how... anoying could that be."
The Assassin explained
"If I understanded correctly, this Gem is a rebel too... she joined the Crystal Gems, but something went wrong and she massacred several of them. So in theory, she is their enemy too... the prolem is, she is not Loyal, and never will be. He told himself. And she is insane... Be careful Fusion Gaspeite! When you meditate or sleep... I think the last thing you want someone with a broken mind and with insanity, possibly Corrupted to invade your head! Poison your thoughts... his madness is bleeding out; there is a dangerous insane Gem mind out there, looking for prey!"
Morion nodded to the Fusion "And his "visit" I think could potentially disturb the harmony between your Gems... and "destroy you". So.. be careful!
Post by Zriphelo (Gaspeite) on Nov 8, 2016 22:23:20 GMT
"Thank you a lot for the advice, that gem is a very big threat to anyone... I will be extra careful when meditating, we don't want anything unwanted to disturb our peace, that would be horrible. Hope to see you in the future."
Gaspeite would leave the balcony, walking down to the elevator while thinking. Te gem doing that was mad, it was a danger to everyone. Why would you want to enter minds without any reason? Without even knowing the person you're trying to disturb. She understood what Morion meant, too, to be destroyed. If her component gems were to be disturbed in their mind, Gaspeite could get seperated. Even though, Gaspeite has a very strong personality, so it would be a hard time to do anything. but then, in the mind, it's not Gaspeite. The pure mind of Gaspeite is both gems seperated, like for every fusion, so that was something to fear.
Though now, she was en route to mapping more of the city!
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
