you were free now you could ne whoever you wanted to be and no one could tell you otherwise but no you are a pearl a 'made to order' pearl supposedly without knowledge or ability to do anything to do anything but what her master orders her to do, However your master abandoned you here because she found out about the secret training sessions that soon grew into something more powerful..."love" the thing gems especially pearls are frowned upon having even more so with a different type of gem so her master shattered her in front of pearl and made her clean it up and to this day its stored in her gem. Now that the warp pads were broken and no hope of getting hope pearl sobs nearly every night the stress of not knowing what to do because no one was there to tell her to do something was causing ice to form on her body in a makeshift cradle to comfort her she curls in a ball in hopes one day to go home...to be useful again and before falling to "sleep" she says with a soft voice "I'm sorry for being defective, nirvana".
Howlite needed to escape. His hunt was getting him no where and it was depressing him. He decided to go for a parkour run. He went out into the forest and used the trees to move around. He ran form branch to branch when he heard crying. He stopped and perched on a tree. He saw a pearl crying on the ground. "Hello! You, down there!" He dropped down in front of her. " What appears to be the trouble? I'm Howlite Facet 57ZD Cut 9XR and I think I can help you." He offered his hand to help her up from the ground. Why was she so sad? She seemed alone which was very unusual for a pearl. Very interesting.
she was pulled from the ice around her by a new strange gem possibly from homeworld she thought as she heard the gem call out their facet and cut she kept her head bowed as she was scared she didn't want to confront or really talk to at the moment unless it was a order from a gem above her which everyone was even rubies so she simply looked around after hear the question "what seems to be the trouble?" which confused her she was never asked how she was or how she felt this feeling of someone having concern for her was a repressed memory she makes eye contact with howlite before saying" I am pearl...and not long ago my owner abandoned me here its nothing to be concerned about I am fine." the ice seemed to be melting away from her body as you seemed concerned for her.
Howlite looked in awe as the ice went away. As if all his troubles were vanishing. Then he heard that this gem had no owner. "So what you're saying is, you have no owner? Most gems would take you as theirs but we Howlites don't like to own pearls. We tend to venture into the frontier alone. So you can stay free if that's your thing." He felt bad for her. He may have been a cold blooded killer but he still had feelings. He knew it must be sad to have no purpose. As she stood up he had an idea. "I don't normally do this but, you wanna tag along on my hunt? Just don't lag behind."
she smiles when he asked her to come along so she nods happily at this and came to stand beside you like any pearl would with the person they served. she hums a bit before looking at you and saying" I would love to come along with you because I just... I just cant do this on my own I need someone someone higher than me to command me but you will be just fine this is absolutely fine to me ...but, where would we stay if you don't mind me asking?" she looked at the broken down ships that were broken down she had been using as shelter before pointing to it stuttering "t-that's where I've been staying its really quite nice if you want to go inside and have a look at it?"
Howlite heard her question about shelter. "Let me give you a life lesson: shelters are overrated. The only time you build a shelter is if you plan to stay for a long time. We Howlites... We don't stay in one place long. The city is our shelter. Understand?" He then looked around to get his bearings. "We'll go straight to town. That way!" He said as he pointed to a section of trees. He climbed the first one with ease. "I don't know how well your parkour is. If it's not wrll, just run along the ground and try to keep up. Before we go I'm gonna lay down 3 rules: 1- Never compromise the hunt. 2- I'm in charge and what I say goes. 3- if you see a rebel follow my instructions to the letter. Can you handle all that?"
She nods a bit trying tot no seen totally lost because at this point in her mind she was extreamly lost so she looks at you with deep purple eyes and says " will we have to fight at all because if so I think I would be great assictance to you if I could maybe possibly fight along side you but,only if that's alright with you because I don't wanna over step my bounds and upset you or anything .. oh and about the parkour thing yes I can do it." She takes no time when summoning her stilettos with a sharp knife in the end of them the used to help herself climb up a tree slowly but carefully trying to to slip and fall as she did
I Howlite smiled as he watched her climb up the tree. "To answer your question... Probably not. I don't wish to start a conflict unless necessary. I work best from a distance. Seen but unseen. I'll teach you once we get back. Now then, try to keep up." He then bolted through the the trees. He spent noore than 5 seconds on each tree as he swiftly navigated the forest. At least he finally had some help. After so much disappointment, something was finally going his way. Maybe this op wouldn't be so bad after all. He finally reached the outskirts of town as he turned to face his new ally. " Let's go. Just remember the 3 rules and you'll be safe. You ready to learn the ways of the Hunt?"
She struggles to keep up and she leaps from tree to tree she coughs a bit feeling weak due to never having to do this in her entire life she looks in your direction she raises her hand"please...p-please slow down I can not go that fast" she pushes herself to keep going on but soon looses her valence falling out of the tree and not saying a single word As she slowly got back on her feet she shook her head and kept pushing herself to go till they reach their destined location and she sits on the ground and huffs "please don't make me run that fast ever again that's really exhausting to be honest..." she lays on her back and covered her face
Flint was in a jovial mood as always. He had breakfast and was on his way for a stroll around town. He was looking towards the entrance to town where he saw a figure. He used his enhanced vision to spot it. Who was the figure? Why, it was his best pal Howlite! Flint was so happy. Howlite was practically his brother and he missed him. He bolted over towards his friend. "Howlite! I'm so glad to see you!" He then saw a pearl next to him. "Oh my stars! You made a new friend?! That's amazing. It feels like awhile since I've seen or heard from you. If we weren't so close, I'd say you're avoiding me." He then laughed and focused on the pearl. "Where are my manners? My name's Flint, Flint Quartz. And you are?" He offered her a handshake.
Howlite looked at the pearl. "I understand you have limitations. I'll only ask what you're capable of." He then took a breath to begin his hunt when he heard it. A sound he hoped to never hear again. That rebellious dog came running at him. His towering physicue made Howlite look tiny. Flint was arguably 3 feet higher. That didn't matter. He let out a groan, "What do you want Flint? This is Pearl. She's my new partner and she's ready to join the cause." He then got next to her and whispered, "remember step 3. Flint is as smart as a shoe. He thinks I'm a rebel so try to look like a convincing outlaw. Also if he asks I found you here looking for shelter. You are not to mention Homeworld unless you tell him it was a long time ago. He's one of the crystal dogs, and the best thing to do is blend with the pack understand?"
She whimpers and nods honestly scared for her own safety hearing that flint was apart of the crystal gems made her shiver but,the hard part was going to be acting like some sort of outlaw an not as a ownerless homeworld pearl whom loved the diamonds so dearly she'd willingly die for them and let her form be shatters to protect them she looks at flint then to howlite as she nods in understanding as she slowly started to stand up hey body ached and popped as she did she put on a fake smile before cheerfully saying" y-yea I'm pearl and I'm his new partner... and willing to join the cause if that's alright with you flint?" she was honestly scared for her life she could feel ice begin to wrap around herself in defense she desperately wanted to run and hide herself away but no she tried to keep up her act as long as possible.
As Howlite watched Pearl made herself seem a little off. Luckily Flint was never the brightest so he wouldn't even notice. "So Flint how's it going? Uhhh you wanna go somewhere and talk about it?" He had to get him to take them into town so he could tighten his grip on the rebels. After all, he who controls the water, controls the herd. He then went to check on his sad and shy friend. " Look, if it helps, once we get the Intel we need from him, I can go straight to the temple and destroy them. Along with this city and it's inhabitants..."
Flint heard her ask to join. "Of course! You don't need my permission. Here, you have independence. You can do whatever you want. When I first came to Earth in 1915, I was incapable of making decisions for myself. Now I'm top dog. It feels good. Welcome to the Rebellion!" He then looked to Howlite. "Oh I get it, you wanna go somewhere private where the 3 of us can recollect the past. I think I've got a place. Come on." He began to walk into the streets. Then he realized that Pearl may not know where anything is. "I'm taking us to a secret area that no one else knows about." He then whispered in her ear," as far as the humans know, it doesn't exist."
Pearl nods slowly taking things in and understanding what flint said as she tried as hard as she could to keep up her act as she looked at hiwlute for help she was out of words to say it seems this time the cat got her tounge she took a deep breath trying to keep calm and collect herself to keep the ice from taking control she really was a bit unstable when it came to her powers she simply nods to any questions asked of her as a pearl on homeworld would normally do she tried her best to seem normal before saying " u-um how many r-rebels are there and should I be worried about any of them attack me?"
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
