Blue immediately calmed down when Flint wiped away her tears. She started feeling better as they hugged. She got back up and regained her bright composure. "It's OK baby. I know you did it out of love. I'm so happy to have you around." She then looked to Pearl. "And to answer your question, that energy you're feeling? That's my power. Emerald Pulse. I can heal gems. Whether cracked or poofed, as long as they're alive I can make them feel good as new." She knelt down next to Howlite. "You may be pure evil but I'm gonna fix you. As soon as I recharge I'll fix you."
Howlite got kicked in the mouth. He spit a tooth out of his mouth. Then Blue said she'd heal him. "Why? I tried to kill all of you. What would make you care about a monster like me? After all I've done, you wish to fix me, why?" He then turned to Pearl. "You put up quite a fight. Such a pity... Your shards would've been perfect in my collection." He looked at Flint. "And yours." Then to Blue. "Yours too. All of you would've been fine additions. I wish I had killed you earlier. Now... I'm not sure. I still don't get why you spared me."
"I didn't know you have such a usefull ability, I really can not remember when I was feeling so good after regeneration".
What a weird situation. Pearl used to be scared of Howlite and now this guy is lying on the ground, harmless. It was perfect situation to take revenge, to be sure that he won't be able to hurt anyone else. However when Light was looking at him he saw old Light Mocha Pearl in hw, just young gem in brutal world. He could not do anything to him, it was against hiw nature. He still was not sure about that healing dea of Blue Emerald. "Are you sure this is good idea...? He tried to kill us after all."
Flint was fixing to question Blue when he had an idea. "Hey Howlite let me ask you something. Why are you here? To fail. You were sent here to fail. Think about it. Would Yellow Diamond really send you over a Quartz? She wouldn't unless she was setting you up to fail. A legendary killer like you shouldn't put up with that." He nudged Pearl and whispered "Play along. If Howlite has reason to hate the diamonds he'll join our side." He looked back at Howlite. "I feel that's a waste of your talents. I know your personality. You hate authority. What if I told you that as a Crystal Gem you would have no one to tell you what to do?"

"Don't worry Pearl." Then she realized what Flint was doing. It was the same thing she did to him all those years ago. "That's right. She would've sent you help if she thought you would win this one. If she wanted you to live she wouldn't have sent you now would she?" Then Flint whispered something to Pearl and heard the part about being told what to do. She started to quote what he told Flint. "That's right. With no diamonds, who makes the rules? You do. You wanna hunt? You go hunt. Don't wait for the diamonds to send you. That's a waste of your talents which I know could help protect this planet."
Howlite heard them talk about his Diamond. "No....That ... She wouldn't." Who was he kidding? Of course she would. She had a million more just like him. He was expendable. The very thought brought a tear to his eye. And then he heard the comment about being in charge of himself. "That's rediculous. I couldn't actually be my own boss could I? I do like the sound of that. Hunting what I want whenever I please. Starting with that Diamond. If I ever see her again.... I'll shatter her myself."
At first Light had no idea what are they doing, after few seconds he realized that they want him to join their group. Pearl didn't like this idea but maybe it was the best option. He tried to act like he wants him to become traitor. "Ohhhh right. Now that I think about it... You have been here on Earth for a long time, haven't you? Your diamond probably already found someone that can do your job better. It happen all the time, we are like machines for humans. One the you are important, other day you are just worthless space rock that need to be replaced for better model. We won't be friends... but what about deafeting our enemy? Do you really want to obey them?"
Flint smiled. "Think about it Howlite. We could all be friends here. The 4 of us. We'd be following the law of the Jungle. The law is as old and true as the sky. It says that, the wolf who obeys gets praised but the wolf who defies is slain by the pack. Because the strength of the pack is the wolf and the strength of the wolf.... Is the pack. You understand?" Flint knew that Howlite would make a great friend and a great ally. All he had to do was see the light at the end of the tunnel. "Join us Howlite. Step away from the darkness and into the light. Become a Rebel."

"He's right, Howlite. Follow the law. Join us. You'd love being a rebel. Doing what you want whenever you want. Look at Flint here. He was once Blue Diamond's best bodyguard. He never made decisions only took orders. He was known far and wide as a destroyer. A reaper. You wanna know why I met Flint? I was the only Emerald brave enough to go. Now we're in love and we'll never be apart ever again." She brushed her hair over and held Flint's hand. "Join us. Me, Flint, Pearl, be apart of our family. We'll forgive you for everything."
"A family? No one's ever offered me that before. You really would forgive me? For all I've done? All my sins? All my kills?" Howlite cried once more only this time, not pain... But relief. All his life he had committed atrocities. Murders, tortures, many many sins. Now he could attone. "I can't believe it. All my life, all my darkness, no one has ever treated me with compassion and kindness. I was taught by my Diamond that in order to survive, I had to become a monster. I did. I spent all my life being a monster. Well now I think I can be a good monster." He pointed his finger at Pearl. "You. I want you to start my journey. Poof me and once Blue heals me we'll make amends."
Suddenly Howlite pointed at Pearl with his finger and asked him to poof him. Light did not expect that, it would actually be first time he poofed someone. Exxcept old times in ship when he poofed Flint while he was sleeping because he would kill them with fire. "Me? Why me? Okay... I will just do it." He grabed his gem weapon and he attacked Howlite with all his force so he would be poofed in 1 hit. He failed "ohhh sorry, one more time." and he did again, this time it was succes, Howlite's gem was lying on the ground. "Why me...? You Flint would poof him on 1 hit, it would be less brutal and less painfull for him."
"You ever considered that maybe it's because he wants to actually be your friend?" He picked up Howlite's gem and held it in his hand. "I see myself in him. I see a gem taught to kill and knew no other life. I see a monster seeking redemption. I think he wants to start with you Pearl. I don't know why but he does." He studied it for a little while. "He's all yours Blue." He tossed her his gem and sat down. Now all that was left is to wat for Howlite to come back. He knew somewhere inside Howlite was a good gem. Somewhere deep, deep, down. He may not even know it's there but it is.

Blue held Howlite in her hand and started her Emerald Pulse. "Don't worry Howlite. I'll fix you up good as new. When you regenerate you'll feel like you're fresh from the kindergarten." She held him and remained still. "You know Pearl I think that he's right. Howlite just wants to be your friend. You should give him a chance. Do for him what Flint did for you. Offer him a chance. Remember, Flint wanted to kill you. He could have too but he decided to give you a chance. Do that for him."
Howlite was regenerating inside his gem. *I guess a new look couldn't hurt* he thought to himself. *What I need is a star. But where? Where to put that shiny little star?* He began to plan out his regeneration. Not too much difference but at the same time completely opposite. That's what he needed. He knew that once he regenerated he'd be a new gem. He could repent for his wrong doings and start a path of redemption. He was ready to start life as a Crystal Gem. Sounded exciting. This was against his purpose. He wasn't supposed to do this. Wait...What if he was?
"He was probably trying to shater them since the beggining and they just forgive him? I understand that nearly every gem has problem like that, they need to do what diamonds said but come on! We can not just let him be one of us, it would be safer if he was under our eyes till we will know that we can count on him... I arleady know Blue and Flint won't care about my opinion. I will need to watch out, what if he still obey hw and now he was just acting?!' Light was just silent all the time when his friends were talking about Howlite. Pearl was sad that they have arleady forgived him but when he first met Flint henearly died and they didn't believed him that Howlite might be dangerous. He just feel like they don't trust him.
Light started to lean against the wall with emotionless face when Howlite was regenerating.
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
