Flint and Blue were curled up together watching a movie, when suddenly Pearl barged in. Flint jumped in surprise. "Ahhh! I thought I told you to knock!" He then saw the muffins. "I suppose you can stay. We are watching Stanley Kubrick's 'The Shining'. It's about this family who goes into a vacant hotel. They learn that the place is haunted with ghosts. Eventually the dad goes crazy and tries to kill everyone with an axe. Wanna watch it with us?" Flint took a muffin and handed it to Blue. Then he grabbed one for himself.

"It's a good movie. You're actually at the best part. This is when Jack Nicholson starts to go crazy by talking to his imaginary bartender who's actually a ghost that only he can see." She took the muffin. "Wow these are amazing. Hey, why aren't you with Howlite? You two are supposed to be sharing a room. What's the matter?" She looked a little concerned for her friend. Then she heard a scream coming from the T.V and went back to watching her movie. Something about horror movies just made her happy. Probably because if she ever got scared, she had Flint next to her.
Howlite waited until Pearl left the room. He popped off a few shots. "Hmmm 3 millimeter grouping, not bad. Recoil compensator is working which is good. I should do some maintenance." He concentrated and the gun began to take itself apart. As he polished it he began to sing in a creepy tone. "What shall I do to the crystal gems? What shall I do to the crystal gems? What shall I do to the crystal gems? Early in the morning. Way, hey, up she rises. Way, hey, up she rises. Early in the morning. Carve out their gems with a rusty razor. Carve out their gems with a rusty razor. Carve out their gems with a rusty razor. Early in the morning." As he sang he made sure his gun was in perfect condition.
Pearl was afraid of movie but it was still less scary than Howlite. "Will human childs be okay without mom and with dad who tries to kill them?" Said Light with sad and scared voice. After Blue asked him why he is not with Howlite in room Pearl tried to find a way how to end this topic "Well... he is training with his not deadly weapon in our room and I don't want to bother him, or be dead, nothing special. Also it is kinda boring, watching sad humans movie is much better way to spend time with friends, that don't want to kill you and don't use weapons in humans buildings when people try to sleep so noone will notice If someone died. You know what I am talking about, right?"
"Not really. Oh and with the kid and the mom? I'm not gonna spoil it for you so just sit down, relax and enjoy. Oh and don't worry. Howlite's gun is mostly non lethal to gems. He'd have to empty a whole clip in you to kill you. Besides he'd never actually shoot it at you." Flint got up and pulled out a chair so Pearl could sit down. Then he got back in the bed with Blue. "This movie isn't really sad Pearl. It's meant to be creepy and suspenseful. It's not all that said though." He knew that things were gonna be OK.

As they watched their movie, Blue saw Pearl complain about Howlite. "You know Pearl, you may just be misjudging Howlite. You know when I met Flint if I judged him by the way he acted we probably wouldn't be so close. You see I learned to see the man behind the monster. And I knew once I found that man, he was the one I wanted to spend my life with." She figured that story would at least get Pearl to try and understand Howlite. She was certain that they'd be much better off if they tried to understand each other better.
Howlite decided he'd pay a visit to his prey. He came in to see Blue and Flint laying next to each other and Pearl in a chair. "Oh hey guys. What's going on?" He turned his attention to the T.V. "you know the humans always get the story wrong. In all these movies, the killer dies and someone walks away for a happy ending. In real life, there are no survivors and the killer has the happy ending. But then again humans never really cared for accuracy when it comes to entertainment." He stared at the axe wielding killer. "Such a waste. If he had used a real hunting weapon, he would've gotten the job done right."
"Oh hi Howlite, how is your weapon training? Hmmm I think it is good that he had just an axe, dead human children is not something I would like to see. I prefer happy endings. This movie is arleady really creepy." Light was thinking how someone can be so creepy and dark. He started to be even more nervous near him.It was just like something inside Light didn't like him, even he wasn't sure what it is. "Now that movie is ending maybe we would do something else. Maybe we will go on a walk, this city is beautifull at night with all that lamps. Of cource you don't need to go Howlite if you think it is boring. You probably have a lot to do... heh."
"A walk sounds lovely. Would it be okay if we ran a few errands while we were out? I need to pick up a few things." He looked around the room to see what he needed. "Okay Blue, since you have a photographic memory, I need you to act as my shopping list. We're gonna need the following things: eggs, bread, milk, cheese, and lunch meat. We're also gonna need to stop by the video store for some more tapes as well as the bank to transfer all my funds. You got all that?" He knew she did. Blue couldn't forget anything.

"yeah I got it. Let's go." She decided to straighten up the room before they left. She turned off the T.V and fixed the bed. She then turned to Howlite. "You coming with us?" She created a holo Blue, as she called them. "Okay Holo. Stay here and watch over the place while we're gone." "Yes Lady Blue. Shall I prepare anything for you and Mr. Flint?". Blue looked at Flint then back at Holo. "No. We've got it covered. Just provide surveillance and defense while we're out. Don't worry Pearl, nothing gets past Holo."
"Let's see... Do I wanna follow you around, in a small isolated town in the middle of nowhere, where the nearest gem is miles away? I wouldn't miss it for the world." Howlite saw Holo Blue. "A hologram? Interesting. Very interesting. I assume they're fight capable?" He knew this might be a complication however, it's task is to stay here. If he were to kill them while out in the town... He could leave without anyone knowing he was even there in the first place. He looked over at Pearl with a dark smile. "Oh this is gonna be fun..."
Light spawned his Holo Pearl "Maybe it is not as good as yours but it is great hologram too" Pearl turned to holo "You know what to do Holo. Just stay here and protect our rooms from everyone except us." Than he said something so only Holo could hear him "Keep an eye on Howlite when he is here" Holo noded "ohhhh they look adorable together, bye Holo." light has got a face like he must realized something. He spawned another hologram, it looks like small circle with wings "I want yoo to meet Holo#2 It was made to fly near owner or far away and use loud bell noise if it found something or something dangerous is near. If it is far away it can aslo come back to owner to say that something is wrong. We can took it with js to watch our back or left here to tell us if something happened.".
Flint saw the second Holo pearl. He whispered to Pearl, "I know why you made that. Do you think I'm unaware of your distrust in Howlite? I'm not saying get rid of it but could you at least ease up on him a bit? When has he ever attempted to hurt the 3 of us on this trip? Yes he's creepy and dark but that's just his nature. Deep down he's a good person." He then grabbed his credit card and turned out the lights. "Let's go." He waited until everyone left the room and then locked the door. As he started walking he felt bad for Pearl and Howlite. He wanted them to be friends but he just couldn't figure out how. It was like trying to put an ice cube near an open flame without melting it.

Blue followed Flint out of the room. "Okay our first stop should be the grocery store. It's closest. About a mile up road. I hope it's still. I remember when we first went there. It was December 2nd 1962 and the store had just opened for business. We went in and purchased our first film camera." She started to feel nostalgic now. She missed those days. Times had changed and everything she loved was considered out of style. She squealed with joy when the store appeared. "it's still here! After all these decades it's still here!"
Howlite saw the hologram fly overhead. Howlite knew this would be a complication. He stared at the hologram when Blue started rambling on about a grocery store. Honestly he couldn't care less. Then she squealed like an animal when they approached the store. "Oh so this is the store. OK. Let's go in and get our consumables." He entered the store and suddenly the humans started staring at him. They slowly backed away as he walked in. These humans were afraid of him? Good. It seemed these humans knew who was on top of the food chain.
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
