"I require only small recess to regain my strength... I am not used to this level of excretion... nor fighting."
He wasn't going to be carried. That was far too undignified. He was of course grateful for the offer, but he wasn't going to accept it right now. Situation would have to be quite dire before he would.
"I hope I didn't injure you in any way... attacks of this magnitude are beyond my comfort zone... I actually thought it is beyond my capabilities... but since I arrived on Earth my skill was slightly increased it seems..."
Slowly he stood up after few minutes.
"Let's hope we don't meet other enemies, I am positive that I won't be able to withstand even one..."
"I hope not. But if we do I'll have your back. Now let's go find your friend." He started to walk through the monster tracks. "There shouldn't have been that many in this area. Something drew them out. Perhaps it was your friend. I'll take lead." He summoned his spear and remained ever so Vigilant. He started walking through the tracks when he noticed a pattern. "They're all the same. All these are the same gem. Look at the tracks. And the gems. What brought them here?" He then went back to the fallen monsters. "Hold up." He bubbled every gem and sent it to the temple. "There. Let us continue."
Sapphire wasn't much interested in the fact, that all the gems were the same. He cared only about his friend and her safety. They were able to clean the area of corrupted gems, Sapphire only hoped those were all of them... he wasn't sure if he could fight... "Is it strange that they are the same? Seems impropable... but do you think it has any significance?"
He heard rummors that there were some attempts to restart or even create new Kindergardens, but those were probably just rummors. The inginuity to start Kindergardens was lost on Earth, and his vision told nothing about this... though the details were sketchy at best...
He followed Flint and hoped, that Ruby is somewhere close...
"The only reason they would all be here is if they all got corrupted here. Whoever did this, had done this on a large scale. Hmmmm I'm not sure. Look I'll get word to the other Crystal Gems and see what they think of this. Whatever it is, it's something big." He led Sapphire deeper into the forest, searching for his Ruby friend. He really wanted to help the poor guy. His friend had vanished without a trace and now Flint was his only chance in finding her. He could not fail this mission. It was far too important. He would find this Ruby or die trying. He turned to Sapphire with a smile. "Don't worry Sapphire. I'll find your friend. We just have to have faith in one another."
"I can think of several other options - some unknown power could be creating "clones" of this one gem... or perhaps there is something, that is luring those particular gems to this area... there are lot of things on Earth that still elude our understanding. I believe even Diamonds are interested in this planet beyond just simple making a colony here... though they would never admit it of course..."
He said while following Flint to a forest. So far there weren't any more signs of his friend. Sapphire would also never admit it, but he was worried a lot... more every second.
"I have faith in you... and I have faith in my friend too. She is here... somewhere... I just don't know where..."
Flint smiled. Thanks Sapphire. You're a nice guy. Now we will find your friend. And we'll do it together! He walked through the woods desperately searching for Sapphire's missing friend. She had to be around there somewhere. It was tragic that Sapphire had no leads or clues. It reminded him of when Blue was taken. He wondered what she would do if she were there. What was she doing now? Probably something around the temple. Maybe she was cleaning. Or cooking something. The thought of her cooking made him smile. He then realized he had gotten sidetracked. He looked around. Where was he? He wasn't looking where he was going. Oh no. I believe we're lost. I'm sorry my thoughts were elsewhere.b
They continued the search, but there was no results so far. They were going through the forest for some time, before Flint admitted, that he got sidetracked for a moment and they are now lost. That was unfortunate. Then again since they didn't go to some particular place they weren't exactly lost. "This way..."
He suddenly pointed at seemingly random direction. To make his point even stronger he started to walk at that direction in quick pace. He didn't even check if Flint followed. Perhaps this was the reason why so many gems felt uneasy around Sapphires... but now he knew he was going the right direction... how? He knew but he wasn't going to tell anyone... Ruby was there somewhere...
Flint followed Sapphire through the forest. He wanted to go back home to Blue but he couldn't. He promised Sapphire he would help. As much as he missed home, he had a job to do first. Can I ask you something? This Ruby, you seem very desperate to find her. Are you 2 like, together or something? It's okay if you are. I'm not like Homeworld, I don't judge mix gem relationships. Heck I'm currently in one! But it would make sense if you were. If not I'm sorry for assuming. It just makes sense is all I'm saying. Don't worry I'm sure we will find her. I may not be able to tell the future, but I have a can do attitude. That's all you need on this planet.
Sapphire wasn't at all offended by the question. Flint was helping and he owed him at least the true answer.
"If you ask if we are involved in some kind of deeper relationship, than no... not like humans might be. But she is surprisingly loyal to me, beyond anything I have the right to ask her... I made some choices that might be considered questionable by some gems... but she was always supporting me. I am unsure if that helped you understand... as I can see countless possible futures, there is none in which I wouldn't try to help her..."
He stated. He felt like they were close... really close. The trees were slowly disappearing when they arrived to a big rock formation... with a big cave entrance...
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
