Chyrsocolla's eyes widened, realizing the mistake that she made "N-no, I didn't misunderstand on purpose Lady Jade, I apologize!" She quickly tried to correct herself "I mean I um...I have no clue if such thing exists. I know that gems will have to take sides eventually in this. That is what you meant, right?" She looked up at the Lady, afraid to say much more. It occurred to her that at some point she was probably going to have to choose a side herself, but for now she was going to try to help Homeworld just...perhaps not in such an excessive or violent way that some other gems might decide to do it. Why would she care about all the stuff Melody thought anyway?
"We are at the brink of war "Melody"... it is important to understand, there are no such thing like independence. Ony our side and their side. Whic is wrong. Terribly wrong!"
Lady Jade turned slowly to the window again without any movement
"there is only one side. The Gems' side, to be honest. We are all from the same earth... born from the planets, we are all brothers, from the Perefct Diamonds to the lowly Pearls. We should not fight. We should work together! I spend eons on this project, to slowly show the Diamonds, peacful co-existence with other species is possible, and we don't need to destroy worlds! But I am now afraid, we are in truble. Don't you agree?"
Melody breathed a sigh of relief and looked up at Lady Jade. "I agree...I would hope for peaceful co-existence above anything else in all honesty. That way the humans and gems could both have their own respective parts of the world and we won't have to worry about any destruction!" She smiled happily and giggled "I'm glad to see that you think that way honestly. Most gems that I've seen tend to only want to be taking one approach or the other, very few actually want to take the approach in the middle and then just go from there." The Chryrsocolla seemed to have perked up now, not so jumpy as she had been in the past at all
"We are an elder Race, it would be our responsibility to teach the younger species, guide them... not to conquer them, destroy them, and tore their planet apart!"
Tho' Jade'"s voice was quite, it was quite like an active vulcane, with the promise of the unimmaginable destruction the earth is capable of She was angry And the Earth answered to her feelings and toughts A small earthquake shook the spire, nothing serious, but enough to casue tini bits from above to fall
"I watched the Humans... last time I was on this planet, they were a plague on the land! A curse that explited and abused the life giving planet they are on! But they were so young, so fragile... innocent... I hoped they will change. But I sensed, the planet is still in pains"
Melody held onto something when she felt the earthquake shake the spire. It was hard to tell what, but she had a suspicion that Jade had much more power than she initially realized. This would have to be taken into consideration "I see..erm...quick question Lady Jade, might your powers involve seismic manipulation and stuff with the earth? I'm only asking due to the fact that this area has not really seen earthquakes in a very long time....at least in my memory that's what I can recall." She shrugged and sighed "But I can help you the best I can, I too want to try to protect the planet. This place is so beautiful...in no way does it need to be destroyed"
"It is called Geokinesis "Melody", I have psychokinetic control over the earth and minerals. I can control massive amounts of earth and rock, shaping it with my will, and also have an incredible amount of fine control thu's I am capable of making artistic shapes. In short it is the ability to manipulate the element “Earth”"
Lady Jade explained
"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. "
The noble watched the endless ocean from the window
"Personally I find the "hellish" planets beautiful, the vulcanic ones, with bright red lava flows, and molten rock "seas", those very young and volatile worlds with their volcanic landscapes... When I passed of the Gas giants int this Solar System, I heard the sing of one of its vulcanic moon... it was really nice. But the Ocean planets, the Ice worlds... Jungle moons... all of them are beautifull in their won way Melody! None of them are needs to be destroyed!"
"Fascinating...that's an amazing amount of power that you have." Melody was awestruck at the geokinesis that Jade possessed "Indeed, I'm well aware of that saying" She walked next to her, listening to her talk about the planets that she seems to have visited "I'll admit, I'm kinda jealous Mistress. I've only been to Homeworld and this planet, only due to the fact that my Diamond assigned me here in the first place. But even if one person thinks that something is beautiful, I feel that means that a world should at least be in consideration to be saved, and not destroyed. That's at least my opinion on the whole problem that's with this planet. Shame that some gems can't think calmly"
"There is no problem with the planet "Melody"! It is a fine planet... the humans are young, but I think we could teach them how to be... responsible. After the Gems learned how to be... worthy teachers of course"
Lady Jade nodded
"The problem is with the Gems... BOTH sides! The Crystal Gems' actions were irresponsible... rush, without any thinking of the consequences! And those are dire consequences Melody! I am sure, at first the whole rebellion seemed as a good idea, noble and brave... but it was nothing more than a spark that almost ignited a horrible destruction, and an excuse for the more... militant minded nobles, to make their move to convince their superiors about a retribution... eventually the Diamond will decide. At the moment a little contingent of ships waiting for orders on the moon. "
"True...the Gems could be teachers if they knew how to do it properly." Melody looked up at Lady Jade "By the way, I won't take offense if you simply call me Chrysocolla. I only came up with Melody because some of the humans have trouble pronouncing my gem name." She giggled softly and sighed "That does add into things certainly..I had wondered if the moon base was going to be in operation. The communications from that were spotty sometimes, since Homeworld always talked to me directly. I do feel like I have to agree with you Mistress, both gems could easily be considered at fault, I'm not saying they're not of course. Hopefully something can be figured out to take care of this before it's too late"
"Yes, we could have been great teachers... yet, we are nothing more than a plague on the Galaxies... expanding, consuming, multiply... repeat. Like a faulty program in a constant loop! "
Jade wasn't too happy
"We are self replicating "devices"... nothing more Chyrsocolla! Well.. you are better than most of the Gems. You are an artist, capable of creating new things"
"But truth to be told... most of the Empire forgot, where the Gems came from. We are the childrens of the planets... like the biological life forms, sentinent crystals. But it was long... long time ago, the Gems were "natural" things... today? Syphoned out energy filling an empty vessel, pre-programed artifically growth artifical inteligences with only one goal: expand, consume and multiply... I would say, Gems are pathetic clods, but that would be an insult to the noble clod..."
Melody nodded and sighed "I believe so as well. The gems have really forgotten how to...act properly. We do not need to destroy these planets....something went wrong...but when?" She looked up at Jade and blushed a little "I'm not that much of a better gem...just because I'm an artist doesn't mean I'm that good." The Chrysocolla sighed "As an artist, I've craved to always try to entertain. THat's why I was so nervous when alone...I never know who my next audience would be and if they would ever show up." She blushed more and clung to Lady Jade, almost like a little child "I don't want to be alone again...I don't want that to happen.."
"You will be that good " Facet-3T9S Cut-2QH Chyrsocolla...
"You have to. We need to work on our relationships with the so called lesser species, like humans, and you are familiar with humanity, it's culture, music, art, everthing, that makes them who and what they are! As an entertainer, you should at least... correct me if I am wrong!"
Lady Jade watched the endless waters
"You will be not alone any more Melody! I need your expertize... you know much much more than me about humans and about Earth, and I guess, you know the Gems of Earth... or at least you know a way to knowe them. I have planes Melody... and I need your talents and help"
"Thank you Lady Jade.." Melody smiled, already feeling somewhat better "Yes, I believe I can do that. I know I can get good relationships together with the humans. And...yes, I do believe I have ways to know the gems here on Earth. Every one of them is different..Homeworld, trying to decide a side, or they're like you and me, trying to make peace within the world and..that sort of thing." The Chrysocolla picked up her guitar-battle axe and put it over her back, the strap going over her chest "As long as I have my music, and my axe should we be in combat, I'll be a good gem the best I can. Thats all that matters in the end I suppose"
"I am greatful for your help. We need to organise a Summit of the Gems, start the peace negotiations, while there is still a planet and race we could save... two race actually! Humans and Gems"
Lady Jade wacthed the endless ocean
"The Lunar Sea Spire would be the best place for such an event! We need to get it in shape... or at least cover the damages with decorations, as much as we could. And you will have a special task Facet-3T9S Cut-2QH Chyrsocolla! "
The green mistress slowly turned to Melody, without moving
"I need you and your connections, friends and methods to find the Gems and ask them here... to organise the summit; what do you think, could you do it? For us. for the Gems and Humans? For the Planet? For the future...? "
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
