Howlite heard her question. He gently nudged her with his elbow, " That's a sore spot for him. It's fine just try not to mention the name Blue." He then prayed that Flint wouldn't go into another one of his schpiels about his loneliness or stars forbid another Blue story. He straightened his posture. " I can't help but wonder where we're going. Is it safe?" He said with a face full of fear. That stubborn fool. He couldn't lead a human to water yet the gems put him in charge? It didn't make any sense. Why? What made him so special?
Pearl's question soured his mood. His jolly smile quickly became a frown. "Don't worry Pearl. It's just me today as always." He sighed. "I typically watch over the place whenever the guys are out. Can't be too safe." He wished Blue were still here. He wanted more than anything to see her again. "Besides we're just gonna hang in my room for awhile. Shouldn't be too boring with the 3 of us." He then put on a smile and began to march. He hoped Howlite would be comfortable. His room was made for someone with his dimensions so they may have trouble with some things. But that was fine. "This is going to be so great!"
Pearl looks down feeling as if she may have caused trouble by asking a simple question so she stays quiet like any other pearl would be and held her hands together staying still as possible and staying as close to howlite as she could because she still didn't feel really safe around flint yet is excitable attitude and joyful nature made her anxious yet still she had to grin and bear it so she could survive and be at someone's side to remain and still be a so called useful pearl even though she was technically a free pearl free to do what ever she could want to do but to her it didn't feel natural but being with someone did.
"Pearl I'm sorry. I understand you're new to all this. Tell you what, when we get to the temple and enter Flint's room, you can help me search his belongings." He honestly felt bad for her. She had no purpose and it didn't help with him correcting her. He then looked to Flint. "Hey Flint can I ask you something? Why do you do it? What makes you help the cause?" Howlite figured this could get him Intel on his whereabouts. He knew it had something to do with someone named Blue but he had no idea what exactly happened. He figured she was the missing piece to the puzzle.
Flint heard Howlite's question and gave out a sigh. "I guess I haven't told you the full story have I?" He looked at Pearl. "I suppose you should hear it too. It was 1915 when I arrived. I was a bodyguard sent by Blue Diamond to protect a Blue Emerald. I hated everything about Earth but Blue loved it. After awhile I fell in love. In 1973 we got into a relationship and we soon plotted to explore the Galaxy, just us.... Until a Quartz heard us and thought we were traitors. They took her from me and I never saw her again. When I resisted they..." He pointed to the scar across his nose. "It's been 40 years and I still haven't found her." He then broke down and began to cry, the pain being too much.
She listens to the story and she started to put prices together and understood how flint felt she had to go through nearly the same orderly except her beloved Jade the one who taught her all the skills she needed to survive without a master at her side telling her what to do and how to live her life until one very stupid slip up causing chrome jade to be shattered in front of her and what made it all worse was she was forced to clean up every single peice and so to this very day she stored it into her gem all this information has now ripped open old wounds in her mind causing her to start to sob.
Howlite watched as Pearl and Flint were crying. "Oh for crying out loud! Suck it up! Boo hoo! You've got dead gems, well guess what? We all do! Pull yourselves together!" He shouted. He was aggravated. He just wanted to do his job. "Now then! Flint proceed with our journey. We're losing daylight." He then looked back at Pearl. "I'm sorry I yelled. Truth is I've been under a ton of stress trying to do this op. I've never failed and now... Now I'm losing my edge. Can you forgive me?" He hoped she was okay. He didn't mean to upset her. He just wanted to do his job. This was why he worked alone.
Flint was hurt by Howlite's shouting. But he did have a point. "your right. I have to keep moving. It's this way. Luckily my room is infinitely sized so you'll never get cramped. Onwards!" He began his march back home. He then said "I have something to make this more enjoyable. I'm gonna sing a song. This was Blue's favorite." He cleared his throat and started to sing " When I wake up, well I know I'm gonna be the man who wakes up next to you. And I would walk 500 miles and I would walk 500 more, just to be the man who walked 1000 miles to fall down at your door...." He kept singing as they continued home.
Pearl seemed to lag behind the both of you on the way home her hands shaking as she did she pulls out a bubble from her gem thinking no one was looking or paying any attention to her she looks in the bubble at chrome Jade shards she places a small fragile kiss on the bubble hoping one day there could be a way t bring Jade back and maybe make her life seem worth living without persicution now since nirvana was gone out of her life now but as she was paying too much attention to the shards in the bubble she's failed to see a obstacle her path causing her to fall down popping the bubble and she gasps and struggles to recollect the shards.
Howlite saw Pearl drop the shards. Suddenly the killer inside began to emerge. He started to help her but then held one of the shards in his hand. "Beautiful. Absolutely Beautiful. The fragmentation is perfect. Never in my career have I seen such a perfect shard. It's breathtaking." He began to fiddle with it. He twirled it in his fingers and closed his grip around it. How did they do it? He had shattered 180 gems in his career and never did it so perfectly. It was like art. Then he handed Pearl back the shard but continued to stare at it like a painting in a museum.
Flint heard a loud crash. He turned around to see shards of a gem. He waited until they picked up all the shards. Howlite had said something but he wasn't sure what. He then realized who the shards belong to. He marched over to Pearl and put a reassuring hand on her shoulder. "I'm here for you. I understand your pain. You don't have to talk about it if you don't want to, just know I'm here and I feel your pain." He felt so terrible for her. At least in his case there was still a chance Blue was alive. He then walked over to Howlite. "Howlite can I ask you something, gem to gem? Do you think she's still alive? Do you think I'll ever find her?"
Pearl sniffles feeling horrible after the bubbble popped she struggles to gather as the privies try to take form and reach out for its missing shards she looks at the delicate arms grasping and thrashing around in struggle to find itself she gently held the hand and patted it softly and lovingly she sight at the green arm and mummbles "it's all my fault I should've been more careful if I was more careful maybe you would've still been alive today to hold me as I cry but, I guess I screwed that up right?..." pearl honestly didn't want to revubble the shards because it was a small I felt she's could still hold Jade even though she wasn't all together to make up one gem instead she only could come back in pitiful peices.
Howlite saw the arm. It was trying to form. He remembered his hunter's code. A moral code every Howlite followed. After the job is done, ease the suffering. Clearly whoever shattered him wasn't a Howlite. He got down on one knee and placed his hand on the gem trying to form. "Be still. I understand you are in pain and you miss her but you must be still. Even after your death, you're still with her. She's never going to leave you. Just be calm and be still. Rest in peace." He then took his hand of as she put the shards together. "It wasn't your fault you know. I don't care what happened but unless you physically shattered him then you didn't do it. He doesn't blame you and neither should you." Then Flint asked his question. "Maybe Flint. Maybe Someday."
Flint saw Howlite do some kind of calming trick. The form then relaxed. Even Flint after hearing Howlite's words began to relax. "He's right Pearl. You've got it lucky. You have Jade with you and it wasn't your fault. Blue was taken, I have no clue where to look, I don't even know if she's still alive.... And it was my fault. I'm the reason she was taken. If I had just fought a little harder, maybe have been a little stronger... She'd still be here to this day. She would've loved to meet you. She always did want us to have a social circle." He sighed and pointed at the gate. "Just over that fence."
Is it possible to cry over a rp omg // Pearl gently looked at the shards taking her inner strength just to bubble the shards of her dear Jade she felt like she should've done more and then maybe just maybe she wouldn't have to go through all of this pain and strife and remote of having to see the shattering right in front of her and not being able to do anything to stop it and cleaning the shards memories flashed in her mind of all the good times she once had with Jade some made her smile and possibly believe one day she could move on but never forget .she sighs before saying " It's my fault because I let us get caught it was a accident oh how I tried to save her but I couldn't ...she was a teacher to me but also a lover that i can never replace..."
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

*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
