"You fool! I am using reason and Howlite understands it. I am using logic and he comprehends it! If manipulation includes concrete facts and the truth then It would be news to me." Sulfur snapped. "He is doing what is best, he is doing what must be done. What purpose do limits possibly have on anyone? He still has ties with you, be grateful for once, something you seem unable to be. Will you for once think about the sacrifices others have made."
Sulfur turned to Howlite.
"This Pearl is delusional, now that you are leaving the rebellion he will eventually come to terms with reality. He will eventually realize that the rebellion is insane and he will join us willingly." Sulfur said. "Once you crush someone's false hope they will think rationally. It may hurt them, but diamonds must be cut so many times to become flawless."
"Makes sense. Now let's just go. Grab Pearl and let's get out of here. It's time I embrace who I truly am." He then mouthed "I'm sorry" to Pearl. He walked outside and looked at his ship. Was he really doing this? Was this the right path? Frankly he didn't care so long as Pearl was safe from harm. The best way to protect Pearl was to not give anyone a reason to target him. Howlite knew that Pearl would probably never forgive him but he had hoped that someday he'd at least understand why he did what he did. "I'm ready to reach my full potential."
Pearl got scared when Howlite said "Grab Pearl". What do they wanted to do? To kill him later or use him in something. Light didn't like that idea at all. "What?! I am not coming with you! This is my home and crystal gems are my family! You would need to kill me first!" Light took his gem weapon "I don't have a change with both of them... there need to be other way" Pearl used his power called "magical wind", it boosted his speed. He was able to climb Rose's monument in few seconds. Than he whispered something to hologram "That is actually not stupid." After that he used his stick to jump as high as he can. While he was in air hologram grabed his gem weapon. Pearl was still holding it though. They started to fly away. "Good that you are not heavy... ufff. I don't know how long will I be able to do this..."
For a long while Sulfur watched Light as he tried to escape using his abilities. His expression looked neither impressed or disappointed. Suddenly he crouched down low to the ground. Pushing off of the ground he darted toward the monument. Using his levitating abilities to boost the height of his jumps he quickly was on top of the monument. Lunging at Light with a combination of his own jumping abilities and his levitating abilities he soared high into the air.
Grabbing Light around the waist he threw the pearl toward the ground. Landing on the ground in front of Light he walked forward. Picking Light up by his collar he looked into the Pearl's eyes.
"You`ll come with us if you know what's good for you..." Sulfur said harshly. "You clearly don't... but please, try to think for yourself."
Howlite watched as Sulfur grabbed Pearl. "Pearl please! Just come quietly. I'm not gonna hurt you I'm just gonna send you back to the temple. I'll drop you off there and leave. Please don't make this a fight. I don't wanna hurt you! Just come with us please!" He just wanted Pearl to be home and safe. If Pearl put up a fight he couldn't be sure that he would survive. Howlite knew that Pearl would comply so that he'd live. He'd hate it if he had to hurt him. Despite everything he still had sentiment for the gem. "Just come with us."
"Let me go you monster! UHHHH!" Sulfur threw Pearl at the ground. Nothing bad happened, his gemand physical form weren't harmed. "I will never go with you!" Than hologram attacked Sulfur from behind. It gave the gem a change to get away from Sulfur hands.
Howlite said that they will help him come back home. Light didn't trust them. He never liked Sulfur after what happened long time in forest when he was on a trip. Howlite from the other hand was a killer. He had secrets and after what everyone have done for him he betrayed crystal gems. "Why would I trust both of you?! I have legs anyway. I can come back home by myself, I don't need your help."
Sulfur didn't even turn to see the hologram. Thrusting a blade backward he stabbed it into the torso of the hologram. Sulfur slowly advanced toward the Pearl.
"Oh? Are you considering cooperation? A very good decision Pearl... you're thinking for once. You see, if you come with us you`ll spare Howlite's feelings. He seems to value you, I don't know why, but nevertheless he does. He wouldn't want to watch my methods of forcing you to cooperate." Sulfur said. "In other words, come with us and I won't have to use violence. Come with us and you can spare Howlite the pain he will go through with you. Aren't you supposed to be one of the heroic crystal gems? What kind of hero would let this poor soul suffer?"
Howlite had an idea. "Let him walk. If he wants to go let him go. All it does is show that he's no different from the other rebels. No matter what I do, no matter how many times they say gems can change, they still don't accept me. They still hate and fear me. I had hoped you were different Pearl. I really did. I guess the only ones who actually care about me are Flint and Blue. So long friend. I had hoped we could have one last goodbye but I guess not." Then he walked out towards his ship. "Come on Sulfur, let's just go."
Pearl turned to Sulfur "You arleady used a lot of violence"
Howlite tried to make Light deel sad, he did it "Howlite it is hard to not be scared of someone who is killing others for fun. We tried to help you but it looks like you don't want it." Pearl started to walk away leaving 2 gems alone. After everything that happened Howlite just betrayed the only persons that tried to help him. He was felling sad that he wasn't able to do something so Howlite would stay. Pearl was scared of him but that way he could change. Now he will kill even more people. That means he won't get rid of that horrible behaviour. Light was thinking what would happen if he did something else in the past.
"Howlite, it is only because of the care you have for this Pearl that I have not sent him to Smoky Quartz already. This is not about you Howlite, as one of the gems in my close circle I would rather have done this peacefully." Sulfur said, looking at Howlite. "I can't stand even looking at him... how he talks about being a crystal gem... how he thinks that all it takes to change reality is to believe!? I believe that I could save my partner... where is she now? I hate this pearl... the only reason his physical form is intact as we speak is because I didn't want to cause you any pain..."
Sulfur glared at Light.
"Now I see... your relationship has weakened you so much. I have no reason to show any mercy to this Pearl, you would benefit from this. I will bring him to smoky Quartz, you will learn to mature without a relationship to tie you down!" Sulfur summoned ten blades in the air around him and quickly started moving toward Light. "You may not agree now, but this is for your own good. Just watch.
Howlite had one last idea. It was crazy. It was evil. But he had to if his friend had any chance to live. "Wait! Sulfur... If what you're saying is true, that he is what's holding me back... I wanna do it. I wanna be the one to hand him in." He prayed that this would work. He couldn't risk tipping Pearl in on his plan otherwise it wouldn't look genuine. What he was about to do... He had to make this work and fast. I'll be in the ship. Poof him and bring him in here to me. I'll send him off to the Quartz." He then walked into his ship. As soon as the door closed he dashed into his trophy room. "Come on. Come on. Where is it?" He was running out of time.
Sulfur summoned blades and tried to attack Pearl. Just when he though that it is over. Like other Pearls Light was suppose to dance in an elegant way. He used this as an advantage, he was dancing and dodging Sulfur's weapons. "Is that all you have got? I can do this all day!" Than he summoned 4 holo pearls. They made battle position and changed thier eyes color to red. After that they run into hostile gem so they would poof him. While holo pearls were fighting he was summoning his gem weapon and throwing at Sulfur all the time. "It is nottaking a lot of damage... I need to find a way how to escape or I will be finished."
Sulfur raised an eyebrow as Light attempted to fight off his swords. He hadn't even started attacking yet, but Light was trying to dodge. With a flick of his wrist four blades separated from the group. The four blades quickly impaled the holo pearls. His six remaining blades blocked Light's weapon every time it came. Sulfur simply walked toward him slowly, as if none of the fighting around him was even happening.
Sulfur suddenly lunged with both of his blades. He crossed them at Light's throat as if he were about to decapitate him. Sulfur turned around as Howlite spoke. Sulfur looked at Howlite from the corners of his eyes.
"Sending him off proves nothing Howlite, also I don't trust that your sentiment will enable you to do so. I am not dull enough to give you an opportunity to weaken yourself." Sulfur said sharply. He backed off from Light but he left the swords suspended in the air by his neck, ready to poof him if he attempted to flee. "I want you to poof him... yourself."
Howlite gulped. "Myself?" Could he do this? Could he poof Pearl? Wait! Maybe he could... It's not like Sulfur said kill him. He summoned his rifle and got on one knee to assist his aim. He lined it up just next to Pearl's gem. If done right his gem would take no damage and he'd poof. If not.... He wasn't sure if he could fight Pearl. He took a deep breath. He calculated his distance. Since there was no wind he had a straight shot. Just had to adjust for drop off. Once he did he looked at Pearl and mouthed "forgive me" and he pulled the trigger. As he heard the gunshot he put his rifle away. He prayed this worked. As long as Pearl lived he didn't care about Pearl's condition.
"You have gotta be kiddding me..." There was nothing Light could do, it was over. After all training he had... he was still too weak. Since he joined crystal gems he wanted to be like Rose's Quarts Pearl. Inteligent, strong and loyal. However he isn't the most inteligent gem, he is not strong at all and... well he is loyal to crystal gems.
Howlite come with a weapon. Light knew he can't trust him. Maybe Howlite never wanted to hurt anyone but he was doing this all the time. Old "friend" shot him. Luckly his gem wasn't damaged. However his physical form was too harmed to still be here. He got poofed, his gem landed on the ground. Before he died he said something "You are just like him..."

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
