Sulfur tried to make an expression that looked sympathetic, it didn't work very well. Sulfur wanted to feel sympathy for his comrade but he could not. The reason that he couldn't be burdened by what Blue Quartz had said wasn't only because he felt that her past could not have been as difficult as his. The main reason that Sulfur could not give his condolences was because he had forgotten how. Over the many years that he had been shattering gems for a living he had lost something essential to being a person.
"Impeccable?" Sulfur asked accusingly. "I think that it's a mistake in itself. Why destroy earth when earth is a place where gems can fight or flee however they like. I hate planets like homeworld, too many soldiers to ever think on your own. Here, who is going to stop me if I want to live how I live... If I don't want to salute to the diamonds who can track me down and force me? You do realize that this cluster would only end of destroying our refuge?"
Dark gazed as the goo stopped and formed a giant quartz soldier. Fusion... He muttered to himself.
Dark jumped off the wall and up towards the head of the iron beast. His took his dagger in hand and it grew bigger. He then summoned another of the same size and strength. He plunged them both into where the eyes would have been and pushed his two weapons down making a giant cut into its head. After that he jumped up off them and landed on its head. As soon as he landed he drew out the same axe he had used against Blue in they're battle. His eyes turned red as the axe grew to a huge size. He plunged the axe into its head. He then jumped down to the ground with his axe and then ran underneath it, jumped up, and all the cuts met as the quartz became cut in two. All of Dark's weapons desummoned as he took a step back. Both of the Iron Quartz's halfs fell to the ground, shaking the room.
Any other tricks you've got up your sleeve Blue? Dark said, not referring to the Green Pearl. Even though he was a broken gem, he still didn't treat Pearls with much respect. If any at all.
The Green Pearl would then arch her eyebrow as he seemed to be speaking out towards the area speaking of her owner Blue," Madam Blue is speaking with Sulfur currently.. she is not here to hear you..however she is recording what is happening using our latest tech" she'd say while walking up towards him. Green Pearl would then bow her head while saying," It was a pleasure seeing your skills" she then says while staying in the room as Blue would soon come down there to meet them.
Meanwhile Blue would then See that Sulfur was a bit concerned for what the cluster would be able to do once activated, she would then look towards him while having a neutral expression," Sulfur, I wouldn't use it to destroy this planet, I'm having fun living here, doing as I please, I wouldn't jeopardize all my research for nothing, as I said this is just a last resort incase some happens.." she began," When I invented this thing and saw its power I knew it was beyond the control of even the diamonds, so I incased it in this electrical field to ensure it's never unsealed, it can only be opened by the power of my gem so it shall be safe indeed" she'd say softly while walking back towards the opened giant doors.
If Sulfur followed she would close the door behind them in which then heading upwards up the path towards the central base area, as she would then turn while having her hands behind her back she would speak once more," where heading towards the training bay to meet Dark Spinel, systems says he has been making efficient process with my pearl's iron manipulation creations, I do believe his training is finished.." she'd say while finally walking towards the door that glowed sky blue. The Door seemed to be still opened in which Blue would enter seeing her pearl and dark," That will be all pearl, you can go finish cleaning up" she'd say while moving her hand behind her back in indication that she wanted her to leave this instant.
As the pearl nodded towards blue and left she would then face Dark," very good skills, I've recorded your battle and you seem to have a profound knowledge of fighting, whether simple logic or not you are indeed worthy of being with us" she'd say while nodding in which then she would start to look around the room," Took me a few months to create the place, I had help with some Bismuths and Perdiots but once they were no use to me there were added towards my experiments, I came to this planet long ago and made this place glorious, as I left I knew I'd come back here to continue my research of course.." she'd then say while walking around the room having her hands behind her back. Blue would then pause," Pink Diamond made me see it, the true colors of Home World, each gem serves there purpose however blindly we are all just pawns doing the dirty work for the benefit of more resources for them.. I even tried to shatter pink diamond which I'm sure was a failure by now as she does have defensive mechanisms in that base.." she'd say thinking about when she met Pink Diamond about a couple weeks ago.
Sulfur chuckled and put a hand on Dark's shoulder. He smirked proudly.
"You are one of us now Dark, We have so much potential as allies..." He said. "You see, Blue here is like us. She is not afraid to shatter a gem if need be. She even has made a use with the shards. Gems like us are hard to come by indeed. We should stick together to defend each other from barbarians."
Sulfur nodded as Blue spoke about homeworld.
"Yes.. and any gem who does not conform to the Diamond's wishes, who cannot serve their purpose... will be purged." Sulfur said. His tone suggested that he was referring to himself. "I could never dream of living in such a dull world. That is why we must fight."
Dark's eyes returned to normal and he smiled. He then became confused. Blue Quartz had attempted a fight with Pink Diamond? Dark had considered doing it once, but never got the chance. Hearing this must mean that Pink was on Moon Base, and could soon be here. Dark knew that Pink Diamond being here would mean a crack at her. But first, what were the Broken Gems? And what did it mean to be one? Dark had never even heard of them before. He knew that now, he, Blue, and Sulfur, were all a part of them. Also, who is the leader? These were questions he should probably present before his new team members.
Well Sulfur, who exactly are the Broken Gems, us? And exactly, who leads us? No offence, but I've never even heard of The Broken Gems, you, us.
Blue would then turned towards the Dark spinel while speaking," That's a good thing we aren't heard of as much, as we try to be more concealed with our group as I don't need rebels finding my base, either way my drones can handle it however they'll now where it is, so we generally keep it more of secretive however our actions may reveal who we are soon enough in which then I have a plan if things get out of hand" she'd say while looking towards sulfur, she would let him explain what the Broken gems our as a whole. The term "Broken" wasn't literal to some rather it was a way of expressing how evil the members are overall, Blue would have her arms folded while leaning on the wall in the training bay room.
Sulfur rubbed his hand across the bridge of his nose. He smirked.
"So that's what we're calling it ey?" He said. "The broken gems are any gems who come to us in their search for power. It's not as simple as a gem simply wanting to be strong, they must be like us mentally aswell. The fewer relationships the better as those will limit the gems that they can shatter. Every broken gem must either have a desire to shatter gems, or the ability to do it without regret."
Sulfur paused in thought.
"As far as a leader, I simply thought that we would work as a democracy as leaders are the reason we left homeworld." Sulfur said, sighing. "No offense... I will not take commands from any of my affiliates, I have my own agenda. In other words, if any of us would be a leader it would have to be me... Now you see If I give you a command it is not because I am superior to any of my affiliates... it is because I am attempting to strengthen the team or press us toward our goal. My concerns lie with the good of our group."
Hmmm... I will gladly be apart of your group. And I also have Many Spare Gemshards for you. I can retrieve most of them from back at the Crystal Temple. I will soon embark back to the temple to retrieve the gemshards needed. One more thing, who are the members of the Broken Gems? I know of you two. But surely we have at least one more.
Dark knew that the concealment of who you are was important. Especially when it came to assassin work. Of course, with corrupted gems he could just charge in. But none of the sides of these worlds were corrupted. Dark pondered who other members could be. Nobody he had met besides Sulfur and Blue had really met the qualifications. Then again, he hadn't met many gems at all, so that didn't really matter.
Blue nodded with her eye closed listening towards Sulfur, as she smiled slightly she would then have her arms behind her back while walking towards the dark spinel," Hmm.. If you have more then it would be good to hand them over to myself, ill take care of the rest from there" she'd say softly towards him while then turning towards the ceiling," Here we serve our own purpose, that purpose may not be seen currently towards others however every gem has there ways of going about life itself on earth, some have essential objectives they seek to complete while others with low work ethic rather use this planet as a source of there "bed", I am not aware of another member joining possibly sulfur is" she'd then say while still looking at the ceiling. As Blue would turn around towards them she glanced at them both, I have some work to do around the base, there are several rooms in the upper sector floor, make yourself at home" she said while walking out the training bay door.
As she would walk the halls she would then pause heading towards a secret passage way using the glow of her gem to form a door like shape on the wall, this is her gem room, generally as the crystal gems had there's it was only one however she had more than one room in her hideout which had different things one could do inside. Here was her personal study, as she walked in glistening blue crystals flowed all around shining, with droplets of oozing slim dripping from the ceiling it appeared as a mineral cave but in a greater tech like fashion. Computer like devices could be seen with weapons on the walls and technician tools as well, Blue would then sit down on her crystal chair thinking a bit as she wondered when homeworld would invade. Images flashed in her head of pink diamond, she balled up her fist and gripped her hair in intense frustration," Dammitt! I could've just shattered her when I was inside!" she'd say mentally in her mind as she no longer was appealed towards the diamond and wanted them all shattered.
"Do not worry, she will make good use of your work." Sulfur said. "Now you are one of us... Have you met a gem named Howlite?" Sulfur asked.
"He's the fourth broken gem, very insane but very high in potential. You will like him if you aren't already acquainted."
Sulfur turned to where Blue had gone.
"Excuse me... I`ll be back shortly." Sulfur floated down the hallway. He floated around Blue in a circle.
"Blue, a Smoky Quartz told me to ask you to join homeworld, after what I heard about Pink Diamond I am sure that you cannot do this. I was only told to ask you for now... but you should be careful." Sulfur said ominously. "I care about efficiency... while you are one of my closest... I am a gem who cares about his survival above others. Do not take this personally... but if you are of no more use to me... I will strike you down and deliver your bits as well as your story to smoky quartz...to score points with homeworld and Smoky Quartz... " Sulfur said darkly.
He suddenly smiled and his face brightened.
"Not like I would ever do that, you're a fine addition to the team!" Sulfur patted her shoulder. "We would be incomplete without you!"
Dark, of course, had no idea who Howlite was. Although he could probably find him. Dark would soon have to go back to the Crystal Gems to get all the gem shards. He would also have to find a new place to stay. And collect gem shards in.
Dark overheard the beginning of their conversation. Then walked off. Who was this Smoky Quartz? Dark had heard warnings about him before. But had never met him. That would be goal four. Find the Smoky Quartz. So.
3)Find place a to stay.
4) Find the Smoky Quartz.
Dark walked towards where they had entered. And stepped out into the clearing. He jumped onto a tree. And started running across through the trees. Towards the temple. Time to get those gem shards.
Blue centered her mind reverting back towards her calm state, she blinked as Sulfur came in one of her gem rooms circling around her while speaking, she would start to think a bit as he spoke of her joining homeworld again," What? How does this Smoky quartz now of me?.. Sulfur.. what happened.." she'd say while looking at him even more serious than she ever was in her entire time with him. Once homeworld was brought up she would tilt her head down letting her bangs over shadow her face in a depressive manner," I always think that the other quartz needed me, I'm there shield, there health, there life, without me there just soldiers possibly being killed in the line of battle, this planet is amazing but I cannot mistaken my purpose as well, I'm a Quartz but I'm also a Broken Gem to, we shall have a meeting with this gem about my reassigning with homeworld, war is eminent.. I feel it.." she'd then say while looking around a bit.
Blue wasn't really intimidated by his voice as she was rather use to his darker ways now, it was a bit shocking to hear him say such things of for the possibility if she wasn't of use to him of the result though. Blue suddenly shook her head blocking the thought of Sulfur possibly just seeing her as a tool to use for making resources, just like the diamonds do on a daily bases in a way. Blue would then look back towards Sulfur," Now I don't know what you and Smoky Quartz have going on but I assure you that all will be done accordingly to how good the meeting proceeds, Sulfur.. what did you tell this gem..." she'd say hopefully he didn't rant about her experiment making. Blue trusted Sulfur with her search however if Sulfur out of all gems was commanded to do something and he actually goes to do it then the being commanding him must be a strong gem internally that is. Enabling to tap into the mind of Sulfur possibly by a divine strength in power in which cause one to yield instantly.
"Blue Quartz, in war you need to side with the greater power. I kept as much about you secret, but he seemed interested. As of now, he doesn't know much about your experiments and he doesn't know what you attempted to do to Pink Diamond. I was practically forced to tell him, if I didn't you'd likely be shards already. This Quartz is perhaps the most powerful, don't be blinded by our current goals... he is our true obstacle. Well... also he is a mental obstacle for me, as he is only gem who I could possibly care about..." Sulfur said, still with a hint of annoyance in his voice. "You cannot meet with this gem, any animosity he has to the broken gems will be directed to me. Being the leader doesn't mean I can command you all at will... it means I will take the responsibility of the entire team. You cannot meet this gem Blue, he will destroy you if he knows about what you have done to pink Diamond."
Sulfur looked deep into her eye. "Trust that what I did, I did for all of us, if you can't trust me then who will you trust?"
Blue looked towards Sulfur and started to smile while chuckling a bit," Hm.., I knew some day you'll find someone able to do so, Sulfur you are the leader of course however he shall not know of anything of what happened with me and Pink Diamond as even if he ask for it I am able to shift to conversation else where, I now you worry about my safety along with the others however we are a team, you aren't going to take any of our problems as we do this as a team together, your not alone in this battle Sulfur" she'd say while gazing upon him. Blue would then have her palm upon her chin," You have nothing to worry about sulfur, I'm sure you are aware of his capabilities however all will be ok, I'm a gem of aristocratic like manners in which our personalities are able to blend and become more positive to one another, my personality would surely calm the Smoky Quartz down enabling us to have a reasonable conversation, and if something does happen to me, do not interfere, you have done a lot for me and I could've not ask for a better partner.. and friend, sulfur I'm going to meet him, Its the only way.." she'd say softly while heading past him. Blue would then pause for a bit while looking back at sulfur," I trust you.. I just don't want to see you hurt, its in logic to join higher power but..-" she'd not finish her sentence and headed towards the door.
Blue would then click the button and headed out the door of one of her gem rooms in which then she would head upwards towards the top area of the water fall, underneath the waterfall and inside her hideout would be several ships that were made years ago. As she would head inside the standard homeworld ship she would activate the exiting sequence in which then the water over top of her separated allowing her to use the ship to head out of her hide out. Sulfur would easily be able to leave as she had voice activation doors for both him and her if they ever wanted to leave the hideout, as Blue would be inside the ship in the pilot seat she steered the ship in the direction of empire city, not heading straight forward there but in close proximity to which she could meet this gem.
"As a leader I do not simply order my team around, I protect them. It would be foolish of me to discuss your dealings with pink diamond. The point of telling him these things was to preserve your life not to end it! I take the problems from you that you cannot handle. This Smoky Quartz you cannot handle. Do not try or you`ll nearly get shattered, I`ll have to bail you out, that is, if you are lucky enough to receive such treatment." Sulfur said, waving a hand in the air. "Do not think too highly of yourself Blue Quartz. Your aristocratic manners will mean nothing... do not fight battles that are not of profit to you. This is an order, stay clear from this Smoky Quartz. I cannot have one of my most valuable assets lost due such a dull cause!"
"Don't worry Blue Quartz... I can take care of myself, it's you that you should worry about." He said. "If you are in a situation that would be too risky for my interactions then I can assure you, you will fall alone. Don't worry about me, I am fine."

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
