"Well it does sound like propaganda... but Bloodstone is right... before Pink Diamond herself will come to Earth, there is no need to rush anything... I mean... she is on the moon... good job, but she didn't even try to make contact yet... if she's careful, it might take her quite some time..."
It might at least give him enough time to think about this. After all, this wasn't something he could take lightly... this might change his life forever... and since he was immortal, forever could be quite a long time...
"I guess I will wait... and watch... if Pink Diamond is worth of such admiration as you suggest I will need to see it first... because I don't trust any of THEM. I will need to see proof... not just hear about how great they are..."
He said finally. Plus pink diamond on his orange body? What a decorator's nightmare...
Bloodstone sighed, he thought to himself for a minute. It was a good offer admittedly but...at the same time...it still didn't feel right. "I don't know Morion...I just....something's bugging the back of my mind." Octi looked over at Chip "I honestly think I'm going to wait for the same reason you are. I want to see how Pink Diamond may treat me, see if it truly is worth it. It's not that I don't trust your word, it's that I want to feel safe on my own time. Besides, I'm still pretty much confused in all of this...I have no clue what to do in the first place. But I can make my decision, I know that much"
"It is quite possible, she is there tho'... but I think this is just a vanguard force, establishing a foothold. The Crystal Gems sabotaged the Communication Hub... and I am not sure, the Earth devices are capable of recieving the Gem signals. But I wouldn't be surprised if the Gems on the Moon are binding their time... watching, learning... Pink Diamond and her Court is noble and gentle, delicate, smart gems, Healers and diplomats... even tho' the Pink Matriarch's forces are as strong as the other Court's armies... But the situation on Earth is delicate, to avoid any unnecessary conflict or unfortunate misunderstanding, it requires patience and careful steps."
He nodded to Chip
"If you ask me, this is iself a proof, Pink Diamond is worthy of your "time" and loyalty kid... I mean, Here I am, the servant of White and Blue Diamond, and I told you about those Courts... and their methods. And Yellow Diamond is a warmonger bitch... If I would have the power and the chance, I would tear out her Gem, to prevent any further experiments and needles Gem sacrifices on the battlefields
Morion growled, he really dispised Yellow Diamond... and her Court
"...Bloodstone can tell you about the Yellow Court and its violent ways, its brutes, their destructive members! She and her Court is the total opposite of Pink Diamond and her followers. Blue Diamond and White are the axis between them... trying to keep the balance. But sadly Yellow Diamond is very influental... And just look at Bloodstone, the victim of her experiments..."
"Anyhow, I accept your answer... If anybody asks me, I will tell them you two are loyals, just to avoid any ... problems. Oh, and after we noticed the Moonbase came alive, I ordered these for you..."
Morion preapred a little box, in it was two necklace, gold, with a Pink Diamond insigna medal; polished pink diamond A little private joke for Chip, wearing a Diamond^^
"I hoped you two will join us... I think that is not a surprise. These are yours... I know, I know, neither of you are loyals, or anything, but consider this as a little "safety net". A gesture of good will from your part... to show the Homeworld Gems, you are not enemies. Acceptable, don't you think? And you could always take it off... "

"Yeah, then again it is quite likely, that the Crystal Gems are making plans right now to blow the whole moon base... or sabotage it... or perhaps to blow the entire moon into the Sun? I seriously doubt they wouldn't react... sooner or later there will be an open conflict... the only way to avoid it now would be to blow the other one before it could start... or to surrender... and I think we all know that's not going to happen..."
Chip said. He disliked the idea... all of them actually.
"OK... I will give Pink Diamond a chance to convince me... but I won't bow before her just because she will be less of a jerk then I anticipate... but if she is so great as you said, it should be easy for her... though I don't think so..."
He was very doubtful. In his mind all diamonds were evil jerks... that should be shattered for other gems to be free...
"You know... I appreciate the gesture...but I could easily add a diamond symbol if needed... this... trinket is unnecessary... "
Bloodstone sighed and shook his head at what Chip was saying. He could understand why the young one was concerned, but the gem was still young. That was the thing. Octi smiled and nodded, taking the diamond on the necklace. "I appreciate it Morion, I really do. I think I'll probably decide what to do at..some point. You know me, I'm just horrible at decisions."He gave him a headbutt again, their small affection between the two. "I promise you I'll consider it at some point. While I'm thinking about it, how is that quartz Joseph's son doing? Did that surgery go well?" Bloodstone remembered that whole crisis where he questioned his powers...again..."Also, I feel like I should mention even if I did join up with Homeworld, I no longer listen to Yellow. With all due respect...I believe Pink Diamond would be my best bet"
"Easy with the ego Chip! The thinking like this made the Gem Empire so conceited and basically, what is it today! Continnue thinking and acting like this, that you are that improtant, an Empress have to prove herself to You... and you end up as arrogant and tyrannical, like them, you will become Red Diamond...."
The smoky Quartz warned his young friend
"Yes, my dear Bloodstone... Joseph the Quartz's offspring is healthy. Luckly his father will be there to see him grow up... he almost died, when the Crimson Death nuked that crater next to my Spire... He was lucky, Chip was there to get help in time. Oh, did Chip told you, he wants to be a Healer? Actually, this is why I thought, the Pink Court would be the best for him... and for you too!
After all, the Human belived in Bloodstone powers... and he is now the guardion of the healing fountain; Bloodstone bacame a honoroary healer^^
"Anyhow.. this was the reason I asked you two here... I hope I was a little help.

"You are the one who wanted me to give her a chance... I am... I want to see how she handles it... if she start nuking the planet from orbit I think I'll pass... but if she tries to end this diplomatically... even though I very much doubt it will succeed. I don't want to have anything to do with warmongers... like this Yellow Diamond apparently is... but Pink doesn't sound that bad... I don't want her personally coming here and showing me how perfect she is... I just want to see if she is so great as you said... and so far... well she is standing by... waiting... not nuking anything... so good start... "
He said. Morion probably misunderstood him... Though he had to smile, when Morion was talking about healing powers. Chip was working on that in silence... and he came up with something...
Bloodstone sighed and stayed quiet "Yellow Diamond is a psychopath, most of those gems that are under her control rarely get past..I was lucky enough to be one I suppose." He looked up after a few minutes. "That's good..It had been bugging me ever since you said you would help them out and I was just worried about him. Didn't want the little one to pass" Octi looked up at Chip curiously when he seemed to have something about healing. This whole conversation had been interesting to be perfectly honest. "If it's something other than the fountain, then you have my interest. " He did mean it. Any other method besides that would always be good to know for the gem
"It that hipothetical situation, if Pink Diamond, White Diamond and my Blue Diamond would be gone, and Yellow Diamond would be the Empress of the Gem Empire, I would be the first to rebel, and organize a resistance, to free my brothers and sisters, from her tyranny and insanity, heck, the whole Universe from that despicable, despisable peace of crazzy Rock and her band of insane brutes!"
"But, the three Matriarch is not gone, so... "
Loyalty is for him^^
"...speaking of Healing?"
The smoky Quartz watched the young Fire Opal with great intrest
"Please Chip, conntinue! I am curious... so, speaking of healing?"
Maybe Chip learnt how to heal? What a nice and unexepectad turn of events would that been
Bloodstone smirked and sighed "You could say that" Octi watched curiously, wondering just what it was going to be that Chip made. His eyes widened in surprise as the flame engulfed the young gem's arms, the colors seeming much like an Earth fire but it was clear something was different. "Oh my gods...Chip...how did you even get this to happen in the first place?!" Octi stood up quickly and walked over to Chip, not touching the flame but looking it over "Amazing...a case of spontaneous combustion, and yet it can be a healing flame. Have you gotten a chance to try this out on any available gems or humans? Anything at all?" Bloodstone looked over at Morion, curious what his reaction was
The Smoky Quartz forwned No more needed to be said... even he dipised that warmonger clod Then watched Chip... well, the young Fire Opal was full of surpises "It is beautiful Chip...
"Your Cleansing fire. A real marvel! And how is it works? Oh, yes, bloodstone is right, Have you gotten a chance to try this out? What were te results? You said you are not a big fan of blood and suffering, and the sight of mortality, so to speak... But I gues your warm light will chase away the cold shadow and drakness of Death"
He was proud of the young Fire Opal The kid found his own path

Chip closed his fist and the fire disappeared.
"You remember the cracked corrupted Peridot gem? It served as a test subject... I was trying to heal her... but it didn't work... then she broke free and tried to eat my face off... so I had to poof her again... and then I tried again... and it worked like a charm... so I guess I can only heal "poofed" gems. So somehow I think it won't work on humans... and it's really really exhausting too... I guess I will have to work on that..."
He was quite proud, that he learned how to do that, but it was far from perfect... it would probably take years to perfect it. Right now it usefulness was questionable.
"I see..." Bloodstone nodded, knowing exactly who Chip was talking about. He hadn't realized she was cracked..perhaps it was worth trying to find her again. The last time they talked things had been..messy. "That's good that you at least know something that can be healed. For some reason that flame seems to act like the fountain.." He looked over at Morion "Isn't that slightly odd how both his flame and Rose Quartz's fountain specialize in healing poofed gems better than gems who are still...well, walking around. And even then the effects can vary." Octi smiled back at Chip "That's a technique you need to keep practicing. It could come in handy and save a gem's life, you never know"
The Smoky Quartz sipped from his drink "Our body is nothing more than an illusion, solid, hard light hologram with a mass... We feel pain because we made our bodies to do so. But it would be easy to regenerate to a body, that can't smell, can't feel pain, tastes... these things are simply convenience features. We are self aware artifical intelligences, with the capability to evolve, learn... but we are still limited to our "programing" so to speak. And no, this is not exaggeration. We have no fathers, no mothers, our core, our Gem is injected in a planet's crust, by an Injector, where the device absorbs the "good stuff", suck it out and fill our Gems with energy, "life". We emerges as "adults", with all the required and necessary knlowledge uploaded to fulfill our roles..."
"Why do you think we call the corruption "corruption"? Like data corruption, like a computer virus, its rewrite our program codes, altering our forms and senses... and intelligenece. And why our body glitches, when our Gems bacome cracked? You know, like a program, or a dataflow on a monitor."
Morion watched the city
"You are both to young to accept this and it is easier to forget, we are not really "natural". There is nothing surprising in Rose Quartz's powers, her fountain or Chip's powers are working only on our Gems. That is the only real thig about us. Our CPU, if you are familiar with the term...
But he turned back to Chip with a smile
"Non the less I am proud of you kid! I really am!"
Melody: as usual, just waiting for posts

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
