"Pearl, you are to stay with the ship. It's our only way off this Planet, I expect you to guard it with your life." was Yellow Sapphire's Order as the ship was getting ready to land in the plains of the Western Sahara. It has been chosen as a safe landing-spot by the pearl, who was still in the middle of maneuvering the ship, so she was simply nodding, acknowledging the order.
Yellow Sapphire stood in front of a big mirror that had been installed in the ship, smiling slightly as she admired herself. This was the first time she ever had been trusted with an at least medium important mission, the Sapphire's self-confidence was even higher than usual. She had been sent to report on the status of colonialization of planet earth, sounded easy enough to her.
The landing of the ship interrupted her, and Yellow Sapphire took position behind the door, standing straight and her hands folded in front of her, as usual. "I hope the gems I'm supposed to meet are already here. I really wouldn't like having to take Pearl with me and leave the ship unguarded" she thought, the door opened and Sapphire stepped outside.
Howlite landed on the gem forsaken planet. Earth. Why? Why would the diamonds want this? He got out of the ship and saw a yellow sapphire. He approached it slowly. "Are you the Yellow Sapphire I'm here for? Name's Howlite Facet 57ZD Cut 9XR. Elite Sniper under her majesty Yellow Diamond." He gave the gem the diamond salute. He looked around. "I assume that the others will be here shortly?" He did a scan around the area. So far it was him, the Sapphire and it's Pearl. He prayed this wasn't the group he was assigned to.

Yellow Sapphire looked around the desert, as she made her first step out of the ship. "I gotta give my pearl that, this really looks like a safe spot. Nobodys gonna expect us here." she thought, then looked at the gem that was here to greet her. She expected a bigger welcoming-committee, in her eye she deserved a bigger one because of her status. Still, she didn't let that ruin her day. This was her chance to gain a reputation and she was self-confident enough to assume that she's gonna be successful.
Yellow Sapphire put on a polite smile when Howlite approached her, and answered with a light bow to his salute. "Yes, I suppose that sapphire would be me. I'm Yellow Sapphire, member of our glorious Yellow Diamond's court. I'm here to check on the colonialization, seeing if it's running smoothly." she answered and looked up, examining Howlite. He looked like the capable sort to her, "I'm pretty sure he'll prove useful to me." she thought. "Tell me soldier, how long have you been on this Planet? I need to find out as much as possible."
Howlite studied the gem. This was his leader? He sighed. If Yellow Diamond assigned him it was for a reason. "A few months give or take. I've gotten to know most of the terrain as well as the inhabitants of this planet. I suppose there's a reason you were sent here? I mean no offense but Sapphires don't typically do these kind of missions. Especially missions that require my services. I hope you don't mind the sight of shards." He scanned the area. If any of those dogs tried to come for him they had another thing coming.

Yellow Sapphire raised her eyebrow in response to Howlite sighing. She found his lack of trust to be a little insulting, this didn't stop her from keeping the calm, polite smile on her face, though. "I'm sure that our Diamond sent me because she wants to hear the opinion of someone who is not a soldier. The value of more sophisticated gems insight is not to be underestimated." she answered with her calm voice, her smile turning a little more arrogant "but I'm sure that your service will be very valuable to my mission, too."
Yellow Sapphires Pearl was standing behind her, probably she forgot the last order she received. Sapphire snapped her Fingers, ordering her Pearl to guard the ship. As the Pearl returned to the ship Yellow Sapphire started walking thru the desert slowly, expecting Howlite to follow her. "Regarding the fact that you've been here for some time already I suppose you'll be able to fill me in on the situation. Knowing about the colonialization's status is important to our Diamond, so I need to know about any trouble it's facing."
"Well I'll give you the short version. The rebel dogs have destroyed the galaxy warp. They've began to grow in numbers as well. Nothing we should be concerned about however. They all seem to reside in a place known as Beach City." Howlite finished his report. He didn't like this. He had to take orders from a Sapphire? Why? He was an elite soldier. She was a diplomat for crying out loud! He faked a smile as he addressed her again. "I am sure we won't have too much trouble. I'll be sure to grant you protection as well as a bird's eye view."

The sun burned down on the two gems as they walked thru the desert. Yellow Sapphire listened to Howlite explaining while watching a moroccan military-convoy on a quite far away street. She didn't bother loking at her cohort as she answered calmly "rebels growing in numbers are nothing we should be concerned about? I'm pretty sure that wasn't the plan, especiaqlly regarding the fact that they destroyed our galaxy-warp." The sapphire stopped, pondering for a moment. "Maybe we should try and capture one for interrogation. If we deliver information coming directly from the renegades Yellow Diamond will be very pleased." she continued, the smile on her face becoming a little more intense. Gaining reputation with her Diamond was importnt to Yellow Sapphire, "maybe then I will finally get the respect that I deserve", she thought. "Maybe we should get to know this area first, though. Maybe set up something like a, how do you soldiers say, 'base of operations', yes?"
"They're not growing enough to be a problem. Our armies are infinite. They number less than a thousand." He scanned the area. "Yes a capture would prove useful to our Diamond. We should make camp. Not here. You always put your blind near your quarry. Let's go." He began to march towards town. If he could get her there, they could establish a site. Once they captured the rebel he was gonna take its gem and shatter it. He was aching to add another gem to his collection. He looked over at Sapphire. Something about her seemed... Different.
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
