"Ohhh I love old fashioned shops, are here parts of old machines? I think I am in heaven! Ohh what is over there?" Pearl was looking at old machines and parts of them when he realized that humans are scared of Howlite "I knew there is something wrong with this guy, even humans are afraid of him. Was he in this store before? Holo#2... I need to give you cool name, please be near me and watch out for Howlite, okay." Holo#2 ringed and came back to flying near Pearls head. After that Light bough some parts and new lamp. He still had some money from his old job in restaurant in Beach City. Humans for some reason did not have a problem with selling old things to alien with something flying near his head. They were actually really nice.
As they walked in Pearl was happy as a little clam. "OK Pearl you have fun with you're little valkyrie there. Blue and I are gonna grab our ingredients." He started to go down the aisles searching for his stuff. He approached a human. "Excuse me sir, why is everyone afraid of my friend?" The human shuddered. "Oh hey Flint. You mean that blue guy? Not really sure. Just something about him feels... Off. I swear once he walked in I felt a chill up my spine. He's not normal. Now I trust you Flint, you know that, but I don't think you should be sticking around this guy."

Blue heard the man talk about Howlite. A chill? That seemed a bit much even for Howlite. "Well thanks for the warning but he's our friend. OK Flint we have eggs and bread. You grab the milk and cheese. I'll grab the lunch meat and we'll meet back at register 7. I'll grab Pearl while I'm out." She grabbed a basket and filled it with meat as she was leaving, she walked to Pearl. "Hey. Are you enjoying yourself? I've got everything and Flint's on his way to the register. You ready to go?" She smiled at him. She was so happy to have met him. He was such a nice guy.
Howlite was walking around the store looking for something interesting. The humans left a 50 foot radius between them and him. They knew he was dangerous which made him feel respected. Made him feel powerful. He then came across a hunting section. Now this he could do. He saw all kinds of hooks, traps, skulls, and hides to his gem's content. He saw the clerk who ran the section. He looked at Howlite with interest. "You got the looks of a predator. You a hunter?" Howlite chuckled. "Oh you have no idea. What'd you got for me?" The hunter showed him bullets, weapons and traps. "Hmmm... These won't work for what I'm hunting." The clerk seemed confused. "What're you hunting?" Howlite got a cold expression. "A true challenge." He then met up with Pearl and Blue. "Oh hey guys."
"Oh hi Blue! Yeah, this place is so cool. I even found really old part for my radio. I was afraid I would need to get rid of that machine. I also found lamp that will look great on my desk. Reading will be much easier now." Blue and Lightsaw Howlite looking at some sort of weapons and traps.Pearl di not know how all of this works but he knew that it is nothing good. "Hello Howlite, what are you looking for? We came to this city to have some fun, not to hurt anyone. I don't remember seeing any hostile gems here too." Light didn't understand him, what he is planing to do. He was sure though that it is connected with them.
Flint saw his friends as he reached the register. He waved at them to get their attention. The woman at the register asked, "you paying for one of them?" "Actually I'm paying for all of them." "OK Flint. I hope you and Blue enjoy yourselves. What brings you back to Keystone? You finally tired of Beach City?" Flint laughed. "No that's always gonna be my home. We're here for a vacation. We're bringing two guests. Uh the one with the radio is Pearl and the other is Howlite." The woman gasped. "He's with you? That guy?" "Yes." "Be careful Flint. We'd all hate it if something happened to you and Blue. You guys were the talk of the town back in the day. Still are around these parts." Flint smiled. "Thank you. Let's go guys."

Blue laughed. "I forgot to tell you Pearl, Howlite's a hunting enthusiast. He hunts... What'd you say it was, big game? Anyways that what he was looking at. He's not gonna hurt you. Oh there's Flint let's go." They all reached the register when Flint pointed out who everyone was. "Well thank you. I'd hate it too. But we're just staying for the week." They started to exit the store. "Man Howlite, you gave everyone in there quite a scare. They looked like gazelles hiding from a lion."
Howlite was sad that they didn't have proper equipment here. Then Blue asked about his hunting. "She's right Pearl. I hunt animals. Not big game, that's your lions and tigers. No, I hunt.... Exotic creatures. Let's just say what I hunt doesn't belong in this store." He eyed Pearl as he said this. He knew Pearl didn't trust him. If anything this would make it easier. Right now he was just toying with him. Like a cat playing with a mouse. Then they left the store and Blue mentioned the humans. "They just have a respect that's all. They know who the alpha wolf is. You see they believe me to be the apex predator. The top of the food chain. They just don't know how sweet I am." Yeah he was lying. Howlite knew he was about as sweet as a lemon wedge. Which was to say not at all. He would have his kill and add 3 more to his collection...
"Hmmmm okay, let's just go to hotel" While there was finnaly in right place Flint was talking to the woman at register. It looks like they know each other. That woman looks worried thogh "What a nice lady, is she afraid of Howlite? Wow, it looks like I am more similar to humans than to other gems. Why Blue and Flint don't see that something is wrong with that guy? He is not just scary, when he is near I can feel inside me weird feeling. That feeling telk me to run away from that Psycho. How will I spend that night? I guess I will just go on another walk. How will I explain that to others though? Ughhh... let's just see what will happen."
"So Howlite, perhaps you could assist me in the kitchen? It'd be a huge help." He opened up the door. "Hello holograms. Thank you for your service. You did a good job today." He made his way into the kitchen to put away his groceries. "So hey while I was out I picked up a couple tapes for everyone. Uh I got Grease for Pearl. I got Beauty and the Beast for me and Blue. And for Howlite I got the movie Predator. I hope you all enjoy." He handed everyone their movies and went back to the groceries. He sang 'Footloose' as he put everything away.

"Awww Flint, that's so sweet. I can see why you chose it. It's just like how we met. I remember it like it was yesterday. Then again, I remember everything like it was yesterday. But that's not the point. The point is I like forward to watching it. I'll meet you in the bedroom when you're finished Flint." She then went into their room and got everything set up for Flint. She put in the movie and got in underneath the covers. She hoped the boys would be okay without her and Flint. She figured it couldn't be too bad.
"Hey Pearl. Let's watch my movie first. It says it's about a group of humans who get stuck on an alien planet. They must work together to survive being hunted by a mysterious predatory creature. Doesn't that sound amazing?" He got up to the T.V and put in his movie as Flint left. "Good bye, Flint. We'll stay out of trouble. Have fun. Sleep well. You'll need it." As Flint left Howlite gave Pearl a wolf like smile. He was all alone. Without that big bad Quartz to protect him. That pyromaniac won't save him now...
When the come to room holograms were looking at each other "Oh my... we won't bother you, don't worry. BLUE LOOK AT OUR BABIES! I am going for camera!" It looks like Earth made Light much more childish... He actually took camera and filmed them. Than he Flint gave him movie Grease "What is that? Okay, don't tell me. It must be good because it looks good and you chose it." He was still scared of Howlite but he decided to go to thier room anyway. Sadly when he was just going to watch his new movie Howlite said that they could watch his movie first "We arelady watched one creepy movie..." Pearl looked at his eyes, he is scared. "Fine, we can watch that predator thing..." Pearl sit o the coach and spawned again his little hologram, if something happened everyone would hear loud music that holograms make when something bad is gonna happen or happened.
Flint got in bed next to Blue. He curled up with her as the movie started. "I figured this would be the perfect film for us to watch. You know I was a lot like the Beast when we first met. You showed me that I was my own gem. That I could make decisions. I will never know why you chose to love me. You could've had any gem you wanted. Yet you chose me." He then brushed her hair behind her ear. He was so happy to have her back. Even if everything was different. "What would I ever do without you?"

Blue looked to Flint. "I loved you because in my heart I knew from the moment I met you that we were made to be together." Then he brushed her hair over and asked what would he do without her. "Crash and burn." She laughed and then went back to her movie. As she watched Belle, she imagined herself in the film. With Flint as the beast. She started to wonder how Pearl and Howlite are doing. She knew they'd become friends. They seemed to have bonded but that may just be her imagination. She just ignored it and focused on her movie.
Melody: how are you doing? Are you going to make a character in here?

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
