"I don't believe that human doctors will help, I have plenty of money, but you cannot buy a clean mind." Sulfur said. "I also do very much value my life... I will try to refrain from shattering any gems dear to you, or even any homeworld gems at all. I believe that as long as I am free to shatter the monsters I will be able to have time to change, given that it is possible for me to overcome my addiction. It isn't that I don't want to, I do very much want to stop shattering gems, but in my situation I can either shatter a monster or a gem. Shattering the monsters will help slow the corruption, while some gems have faith that they can be restored, I believe it is permanent."
"If you wish to shatter me, believing that I am more dangerous alive and not worth the lives of the monsters until I am cured then I will try my best to elude you. This would be rather unfortunate since I wish to learn from you, you are different, Smoky Quartz." Sulfur said turning toward him. "I doubt I will last long, but as I value my life I will have to try to survive. I will try to refrain from shattering gems, but you should know that this will take time. If you believe that I can change and that the lives of the monsters are worth it then I will do as you would expect. I will try to fight my urges, maybe one corrupted gem per two weeks will suffice, the bare minimum to keep my sanity stable. I have made my choice, but whether or not you believe I am correct to choose so is up to you to decide."
"It is possible, Fire Opal will never forgive your crimes against him...."
The Smoky Quartz warned Sulfur "Your life will be ... interresting"
But Moiron nodded
"But be as you wish Sulfur! You may remain in my City... but I forbid you to Shatter any Gems! Bubbuling is okay, and send them to me for judgement. Fire Opal is the City's Protector... his word is as strong as mine, please keep that mind, and be polite with him and honest. And call him "Chip". You may continnue to run your restaurant... but you have to report to me in every three days Sulfur and I guess Chip will keep his eye on you. These are my conditions..."
The smoky Quartz rested on his cane
"...and now, tell me everything about Blue Quartz. It is possible, bubbling that Gem will be your first mission...."
"I am not trying to gain any trust from Fire Opal." Sulfur said. "Once we are allies he will not attack me freely, this is all I want with him. He has become an interesting gem, but I don't think there is much I can do to change his opinion of me."
"Thank you for your understanding, I will only shatter the corrupted gems, pure gems I will leave be. If I must, I will bubble the pure gem and bring it to you." Sulfur said, bowing. This was different than the diamond salute. Sulfur had been on earth for quite a while. "Why of course, Fire Opal will only receive the best treatment from me. Although that may not be repaid I will do as I must, I will be the bigger gem if the two of us have any disputes! -Oh my he really does insist on being named after a human snack food... well I suppose that is up to him. In my opinion, Fire Opal is much more dignified of a title. Then, there is nothing wrong with these conditions, I don't spend much time in the city though, as you may remember my manor is quite far from this city."
Sulfur seemed comfortable with the way things were going, happy to have finally reached an understanding. Then Morion's next request took him by surprised and he nearly collapsed.
"May I ask why you want to know? Blue Quartz is my affiliate, It would be dreadful of me to expose everything about my affiliate." Sulfur said. "I don't want to bubble Blue Quartz... she is not that dangerous I assure you."
The smoky Quartz nodded "He is young and hot headed. But he is a good kid..."
Morion walked to his chair end sat down, leaned back, watched the fire in the fire place
"Why I want to know? Becasue he is your affiliate. That fact only is enough reason to shatter her. Your "history" is not a good letter of recommendation, so to speak. On the contrary, actually. But aside that, she is a Gem in my Domain without my premission. It is just a matter of time I will find him Sulfur! Me or Fire Opal... and after your little incursion, I am not in the mood to play silly games. So, this is a great opportunity for you to prove your loyality... so start singing my little bird, tell me everything about Blue Quartz!
The smoky Quartz asked calmly a second time But it was clear, he will not ask it thrice
"Well I suppose there are some things that I can tell you. You should know however, that I am being dishonest with my ally, please only ask the bare minimum information you need." Sulfur said, solemnly. "To begin with, I met her in my recent history, not before I was trapped in the crystal ball. Also, she has by no means trespassed in your city. When I meet her I usually do so on a beach or I call her on the phone to arrange meetings on the field." Sulfur said, gesturing to his pocket, where his cell phone was located.
"If you search the city you will not find her, as she does not come into it often. She is a gem of science who wants me to help her with her work. I am much interested in it, it is an efficient way to utilize gem shards. I do believe you know of this practice... This is what I have been doing with my shards lately. It is quite fun, science is." Sulfur said. "Also, you may want to know that we have in fact, fused. She simply felt some sort of desire to, I can't say no to my affiliates. I see no reason for you to want to find her, let alone search for her."
"Although..." Sulfur began, a smile creeping onto his lips. "A purple gem did meet me in one of my dreams. I decided to take assassination missions from her, one of the gems who she asked for me to target was you. I ended up turning her down, only recently I've decided to abandon the chase altogether. I would take pleasure in hunting her down and brining her to you... as a gift."
"...I see. And this Blue Quartz... is she a Crystal Gem or an Independent? I am curious."
But actually if the Gem avoided his domains, like Empire City, Morion agreed with Sulfur, she simply did not worth his time. There was already enough target on his list already
"Be carefull with these scientist! I made a mistake and didn't left a little legion in the Alpha Kindergarten aftert salvaged as much technology as I could, and paid the price. Another Gem came and scavanged what she could to continnue her resource wasting experiments!"
Then the Assassin growled
"Fusion... with a different Gem-class, you; so she IS a Crystal Gem! You must choose Sulfur! Her side, or mine? You can't be on both. And that purple Gem? Any information about her? As for that dream-invading artifact of yours, where is it? I will let you keep it, but I want to see and examine it.
Sulfur felt guilty, giving away so much information about his affiliate.
"She was part of homeworld but is now neutral. That is why I trust her, if she turned against me she would be alone. She does not attack gems publicly, at least as far as I know." Sulfur said. "Please don't look for her, she is my affiliate. I would be most disappointed if I lost a valuable helper. Trust me, she is dependable."
Sulfur looked away.
"I think I made it clear that I am the last of my kind. What is the alternative? Not fusing at all? Have you ever fused... do you know how it feels? It is essential to who we are, what we are... She is not a crystal gem. I can tell you that. If she were, she would not have assisted me in my capture of the pearl correct? That would be a contradiction. You asked me to tell you everything, I would assume that it is enough to win your trust If I tell you about something as personal as fusion." Sulfur said. "Well, I would probably be able to find her in my dreams. She goes by Obsidian, I assume you two are acquainted. As for my artifact it is at my manor. It is molded for my gem, unless you are able to crack my gem in the same way as it was when I was imprisoned then I cannot use the artifact."
The Smoky Quartz voice was dark But nodded to Sulfur After all, he spared several of Chip's firends... and most of them were Independent Gems Except White Spinel...
"How on earth a Gem could possibly thinks she could remain "independent" in this conflicet, after Her Majesty's, Pink Diamond's forces are up there, several Hand ships and her Herald annunced Her arrival too... is beyond me! When She arrives whith her Arm Mothership, She will be ....sad. And the last thing we want is a sad and disspointed, kind hearted Goddess!"
The smoky Quartz rubbed the bridge of his nose "The Crystal Gems at least rebelled for something! Themselves, but at least a reason! But turning your back and wander aimlessly?"
But Morion forced himself to calm down
"Ordering you to hunt and bubble your "friend" would be cruell... tho' I am sure, Chip would be happy to see you suffer, but we are better than that! So your mission is to convince Blue Quartz to return to Homeworld, be a good little Gem. The Rebellion is doomed, you know that... everbody knows that, even the Crystal Gems! There is an armada above us, a Diamond's forces claimed the Moon and the Moonbase... and She is on Her way to reclaim Her Planet! So the future is grim for the Rebels, but even worse for the Independents! so if you really care about her... convince her to re-join. And I forget she ever turned her back on us. Deal? As for Obsidian, she will be dealt with, don't worry.... and tho' your artifact is useless now, I still would like to examine it.
"You must understand that I harbor resentment with homeworld after what they have put me through. I will try to convince her to join your cause, but I will probably not be as affective as a loyalist could be. And as you know, I have turned my back on homeworld for the sole purpose in preserving my own life, which they decided to destroy. They did not consider my potential, I have the right to protect my life." Sulfur hovered in the air to look at Morion eye to eye. "Now how will I contact you. Your fortress is guarded... perhaps I could get a good look at it sometime. At any rate I do suppose we could depart for my manor soon. That is where it is kept. Also, I would like to assist in the capture of Obsidian. If I am betraying this gem I want her to know. She is vile her thoughts are twisted. I will only poof her, will you allow me to help serve swift justice?!"
"I understand Sulfur... But I have faith in you. You could do it. I know, you will try it, even tho' it seems impossible. And I am certain, even if you fail to convince her, it will be good for you. After all, you do it Her. Not becasue it is an order. And by helping to save her, you help yourself, a step closer to heal... and don't worry, the guards will not gun you down. Every third day, you are expected to come. But I can give you a Gem communicator if you want..."
The Assassin gently pusshed the floating Gem away, with his cane
"And belive it or not, I don't balme you. I am sure, Blue Diamond will shatter me or order my execution. After all, it was my mission to watch and report, notice the signs and alert the Gems in position to prevent something that happened on Earth. I have failed Her and if Her Majesty let me live, I will try to fix my mistake... but if not, I will accept Her judgemen. I have failed Her."
Morion said quietly
"I guess this is the difference between us... My shoes are too tight, but it doesn't matter, because I have forgotten how to dance."
The Smoky Quartz shook his head with a sad smile and empited his glass, watched the flame's dance in the fireplace
"Then I was right. You are not like the other quartzes. I was inside your mind, did you know that gems aren't able to manipulate dreams without an artifact? Only a gem with a powerful mind, such as Blue Diamond, can do such a thing. From that point I figured that you were unique." Sulfur said. "You have proven this to me now, I am sorry that I have caused you to go astray, but you acted upon your impulses rather than your orders. This means that you can think for yourself very well. You may be right about yourself, most gems are made for a purpose and do not change, but at least you can be proud of your permanent form..." Sulfur murmured.
"I will come to your fortress in three days." Sulfur said, landing on the floor again. "Then we can further discuss Obsidian and your visit to my manor, to observe my artifact."

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" is being treated like a virus due to lack of info about it on the show.
*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
