"Well.. what about thinking about it less like being a two-gem fusion, and more like being a mental fusion, where three just happens to be two mental versions of yourself, linked by all the things you value and care for regardless of how you present yourself. If you let yourself work with it, rather than fight it too fiercely, you might be able to make use of the special perspectives you gain from each projection. And really, a berserk mode is almost like another mental state cuz you get so amped up and dialed in, that for a few moments, its like you could say youre a bit of a different person there too, and yet you are comfortable with and trust that mode."
Stepping over,she drapes over Octy's shoulders like a makeshift cloak or fuzzy blanked and pulls the gem back up and then proceeds to lift their dangling feet right off the ground and give a true 'Carbide Grade' squeeze.
"For what it's worth, I still uncover new skills or attributes in myself from time to time. Its not like they gave me a binder with all my specs and research notes when I emerged, after all."

Gaspeite would feel bad for Octavian, not really knowing what he was made of. Fusion clearly wasn't the answer to this, and he went through this, maybe with a lot of trouble and pain, but at least now Bloodstone knows that it wasn't the source, which is already part of the answer to the question.
"Don't push yourself anymore, at least we definitely know you're not a gem fusion. You could just have been made with the switching ability right from the start, after all I've rarely met any Heliotropes before."
Gaspeite had mixed feelings about this. She wanted to try to help and didn't know how but on the other side she thought letting the Bloodstone to learn by himself was the best choice. The fusion just stayed silent, watching as Carbide took care of the tormented Octi.
"Alright...and don't worry, both of you haven't..pushed me or anything like that." Bloodstone sighed and smiled at both Gaspeite and Carbide, squeaking a little when Carbide gave them a 'Carbide Squeeze'. "I think...I think I can survive like this. I admit, I feel more comfortable this way. My main thing now is that I'd like to try to figure out..well, either find my memories, get them restored or um...well figure out why the heck I got stuck with an ability like this. I don't recall most Heliotropes being given both a berserker ability and my..unique switch situation." Octi smiled a tiny bit "But I'm glad to know that I have two gems that are willing to help me out, however this may go." They hugged both Carbide and Gaspeite, admittedly blushing a tiny bit

Carbide sets the wriggling gem down back on the tiled floor and gazes out across the hoirzon as the sun began to dip lower.
"Oh wow, look as much as I hate to use such a cliche line.. but look at the sun, its getting late, I've got to get going for a bit here. Do we want to try and set up a time and place to meet again? It sounds like we could still have miles of interesting stuff to pour over with Octy here."
Her eyes scanned back and forth between the two. Their little group was somewhat of an oddity to behold, a fusion, a mental dualistic gem, and her, a rnegade prototype, but it seemed like it was the strange pairings that were leading to the best things on this world so far.

Gaspeite went back to a neutral expression, obviously the sun had done a long travel while they stayed here.
"Ah, well, yeah. Sure, there's a time for everything and we have stayed here far longer than expected. You have communication devices, right? Shouldn't be hard to set up something in the future."
Gaspeite herself had to go, she had a lot of things to see in Empire city or just this planet in general, and it was too late to stay here anyway. Even though she has seen a lot of these gems she didn't really know them outside of they wanted to show which is, in the end, always the same with every encounter. However, they are the first to make her smile like that in ages... but... were both of her gems in harmony with it?... The fusion stood up, absolutely ready to walk away already. Waiting on her friends to walk down the stairs, surelely Carbide would do some acrobatics to go down the flight of stairs faster.
Bloodstone nodded and smiled, noticing what time it had gotten to be themselves. "That sounds good to me. I think both of you know where my shack is on the beach..if nothing else it's like, literally one of the only houses that are actually close by the beach in the first place." Octi laughed and smiled " But I'm totally okay with setting something up for the future, I think that the two of you may be some of my best options in terms of trying to..go over things calmly and figuring out more things related to my mental state." Octi brushed themselves off, sticking with the now blended form of the two sides of the mind, hopefully for the best as they looked ready to head off to whatever was next

Carbide waves goodbye to the other two gems and boots it back along the spiral staircase and winding path that lead away from the Sky Temple, hollering over her shoulder.. "You two muffins be good, I'll be in touch real soon okay? And try not to worry too much Octy, itll all sort out!"
Despite the relaxing meditation, Carbide was in a mood to relax her own way for a few hours, after spending the afternoon in such close, albeit good, company. Her thoughts, not surprisingly turned towards her own secret, private little loft that she had established on the upper floor of a small beachfront warehouse. She would have to have them over some time, once she finished getting the place set up of course.. but for now, as she was stepping onto the warp pad, Carbide's thoughts were centered on her comfy couch, open skylights to the evening sky, and possibly her favorite human 'custom'.... the nap. With that, the cyan beam of light strikes down and leaves the warp pad empty.

Muffins?... Gaspeite walked down along the path leading away from the sky temple, kinda quickly. The path was rather long and, she wasn't half-way down that the warp pad triggered. She needed to center on new discoveries, and wanted to see more of this planet. Making a big plan of the place was a first good idea to keep good bearings of where to go for what and when. She also wanted to visit places outside of Empire city and why not visit Bloodstone when she had the time.
"Octi, is there a way to locate your, er, shack, easily?"
She already knew going to the beach meant going through a good portion of land, but walking wasn't a problem when you have so much time ahead of you.
"Thanks Carbide, see ya later!" Bloodstone sighed and smiled, waving back as they looked back up at Gaspeite, following her on the way down. "Well..I'm admittedly one of the few major structures actually located on the beach in the first place. You just keep walking down from where the main part of the beach is, I...think it's somewhat obvious that my shack is there, but it's further down enough to where it's not in the way of the humans that might want to play and do other things along the beach side." Octi smiled "Drop by any time you want. If I'm not out roaming the city or...well wherever I might be, that's normally where I hang out the majority of the time"

"Well then, I'll be sure to, er, visit your.. place, in the future. Now though, it was nice, I'm sure to come back to this place in the future. You and Carbide could also come, this is very relaxing and seems to help you a lot."
As they walked down for a bunch of time and arrived to the warp pad, Gaspeite would send them back to the M tower, leaving the sky spire supposedly empty as it usually is. She was ready to go on her duties once more or well, what she could do with Earth occupations. Though, there will always be the image left of Bloodstone beating up a fish with his fists, left as a mark on the whole universe~

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" is being treated like a virus due to lack of info about it on the show.
*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
