Blue smiled. "You have nothing to fear. Keystone is a small and quiet place. The hotel is affordable and is perfect for the 4 of us." She looked to Flint. "3 grand?!?! How did you get so much so fast? Why 3 grand could by us a temple of our own!" She started to wonder how Flint did it. Frankly it wasn't important. Now she could go to Keystone with everyone and have a wonderful time. She was so happy that everything was still here from when she left. Now she had all her friends and all the humans. No one can ever imprison her again.
Howlite grinned, exposing a few teeth. "That's right Pearl. I'll protect you. We'll all be one happy family." He hated that Pearl was afraid of him. Well maybe hate is not the word. He loves being feared but he doesn't want Pearl jeopardizing his plans. "I'd never hurt you. A nice shiny gem like that.... I wouldn't let anything damage it. You can trust me. Don't fear me Pearl. I want us to be friends. I'm not a bad guy." He wasn't lying. He wasn't a bad guy. He was a monster. A cold blooded Apex Predator. And the predator always gets his prey.
"What the... now he was even more scary! Okay... I am Crystal gem and Crystal gems fight together. I will come so we can all protect eachself from that guy. I can not belive he is good. His personality... his look... his wierd behaviour...and his kind. I am stupid or he is some kind of killing machine from horror movie. Once I watched one and I don't want to do this again." Pearl tried to control himself. Like usually he took big breath. "Okay, let's go. Time to have fun. But we are gonna be together all the time! Good that we don't need to use bathroom like humans, the only thing more disgusting than eating. We will better take our stuff than and go, there is no time to lose."
Flint smiled. "you see? I knew you'd get along. Now since my car was totaled we're gonna take the bus. It comes in 5 minutes." He pointed to the nearest bus stop. He started to walk over when it hit him. Pearl was afraid of Howlite. Why? Why was he afraid? Sure he was creepy and a little off his rocker but he never really found him to be scary. He got to the stop when the bus arrived. "OK let's all sit together for safety. He handed the driver the money and then took a seat. Flint stared out the window wondering about Pearl's fear of Howlite. Why was he scary?

Blue sat next to Flint on the bus. She held his hand as it started to head towards Keystone. "Flint, I'm worried about Pearl. If he's afraid of Howlite, what if they get into a situation and have to work together? They can't not trust each other." She sighed as she tried to piece together everything. How was she gonna do this? Luckily after putting up with Flint, you learn a thing or two about teaching old dogs new tricks. Question was, how to teach Pearl. She had to get him to trust Howlite. But how?
Howlite got on the bus and sat next to Pearl. He kept his eye on the cowardly gem. "So Pearl, what's your story? You don't seem to be like other pearls. You seem.... Special. By the looks of your gem, I'd say you're a prototype, correct?" He stated to fixate on his gem. Every small detail. He started to visualize the fragmentation of his gem. Watching it shatter over and over in his mind. Back on Homeworld, he always would brag to the other Howlites that he had the best collection of shards. He had Quartzes, Peridots, and Pearls from all around. So beautiful.
"Hmmm my past is not really that interesting and I don't like to talk about it. It is kinda depressing. Can we change that topic. Maybe you will tell us who you are? If you are crystal gem why you don't live in the temple? If you are not crystal gem why you don't live in beach city? You could see your friends more often, you know." Light tried to change topic and not to tell him anythkng about his gem or past. If Howlite was "bad" thatn he could use it against him, that is what Light learned from human television. He also started to wondering who is that gem? One day he just come and other gems just take him on a trip? Weird.
"I don't know Blue, but I'm sure it'll be OK. Pearl's a tough guy and Howlite will eventually warm up to him. All Pearl has to do is look past his cold exterior. Then he'd see that underneath those dead eyes and creepy smile is actually a good guy. I'm sure by the time this is over they'll be best friends." He looked out the window. A sign said 'now leaving Beach City'. He started to close his eyes and go to sleep. While he was asleep he slumped over onto Blue's lap. He hadn't gotten peaceful rest in a while.

Blue smiled as Flint fell asleep in her lap. Due to being almost twice her size, he was now equal height to her this way. "Sleep tight, Flint. You get your sleep." She kissed him on the cheek then started stroking his arm which she found to relax Flint. She wondered what he was dreaming about. Probably her. She looked out the window then back at Flint. "Don't worry baby, we'll be OK. Tell you what Flint, I'm gonna use the money to buy 2 rooms. One for Howlite and Pearl. One for us. I'm sure you'll like that."
"Me? Well that's an interesting question. I am a crystal gem, yes. I don't live in the temple because I prefer my natural environment: the wild. I belong out there not in some palace with the other gems. No I'm a lone wolf type of gem. However time and time again, I find myself paired with Flint and his lackey. Don't worry I'm on your side, I just prefer the wild over the temple. It's where I belong. Out there you gotta have a sharp mind and steady aim. If not, you might as well be food. Out there, life is truly worth living. Anymore questions?"
"No no no, that is fine Howlite..." Light was not sure what he should think about this. Maybe he really was not bad? But Pearl still had weird feeling about this gem. Soon he heard what Blue Emerald said about Light and Howlite being in the same room. He started panicking again "So that is how I will die... bye bye brutal world... what am I talking about, I survived explosions and I am not gonna survive living in the same room with weird gem? Who need magical powers when you havd holograms and you are not total idiot. Also I don't need to sleep, I can spend day with them and night in big city... full of danger... yay".
Flint woke up from his nap and saw the box stopped. "OK we're here. Keystone's a relatively small town but it's nice and quiet that way." Flint walked inside and gave the bellhop a credit card. "Okay so Pearl, you and Howlite will stay in room 3a and Blue and I will be across the hall in 3b. Everyone ready?" He got back his card and handed everyone a room key. "OK here's the key to your rooms. Pearl if you ever need us simply knock on the door." Flint started walking towards his room. "Ready Blue?"

Blue grabbed her key and followed Flint to their room. She opened the door. "Flint, it's perfect!" It was the perfect size for them. She turned on the T.V. and put in a movie. She then got in the bed and curled up next to Flint. "I've missed this. We almost never get any couple time any more. Thanks for bringing us here, baby. You really are a great guy. I just wish Homeworld saw you as I did when we first met. They'd probably regret treating you so poorly. But enough on that, let's watch the movie." She then scooted in closer and rested her head on Flint's shoulder as the movie began.
Howlite took his room key and gave Pearl a wicked grin. "Come on, Pearl. It's time we get settled in, right?" He slowly approached the door. As he opened it he scanned the room. Empty. And no gems around besides Flint and Blue. Perfect. He looked at Pearl. "I hope you don't mind. I tend to do practice when I'm alone. Helps my aim and it tells me if I need to adjust my sight." He went over to the bed and took a sniper's position as his rifle appeared. "Don't worry it's not loaded with live rounds. They're blanks. Couldn't hurt you if I wanted to." He then took a breath and examined his scope.
"Oh don't worry, your harmles toy is not bothering me... Oh wait! I think I forgot to take something that I gave to Flint, it is probably in his room now, Bye!" Pearl run away and closed the door "Oh my star... my gem, too much emotions... ughh I will better go to Blue and Flint." Light took muffins he made back in beach city from his bag and went to others, far away from Howlite. He opened the door of Flint's and Blue's room. "Oh I didn't know you are watching movie! I am not Bothering you, do I? Of course I don't, who wants muffins? There are with strawberries, oranges and banana's." Liht sit behind them "What are you watching anyway?".
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
