Wasteland stretched for miles, one following the directions Sulfur had laid out would most likely have their doubts. It seemed to continuously rain, although the floor was dry. Not a single plant grew, the sky was gray with clouds. The bleak biome stretched for miles upon miles with nothing in sight but mud and rocks. The terrain wasn't even either, there were several ditches and small hills of rock. One could hardly walk two steps without having to strategize, as the rocks were slippery from the rain. The occasional ravine could be spotted, but these ravines were full of nothing but rocks and shadows.
Eventually, in the fog was the silhouette of a tower. Seemingly a good sight given the horrid wasteland, but this tower was not much more welcoming. In ruins, the tower stood, as if a bomb had gone off and it had been reduced to crumby remains. The windows were tinted green, all lights on inside the tower cast an eerie green light. The light wasn't warm and pleasant, it was a sickly dim shade that made the tower seem foreboding. The tower fit the description of a haunted mansion. Although it was a horrible place in the middle of nowhere these were the directions that Sulfur had given his allies to follow through his phone.
She was here again, the vast land of the dead, it was a place in which she herself grew abundant too even though plants barely grew here at all, the clouds were darkened in which rain scattered throughout the area, pouring droplets of water onto the corrupt misshaped rock surface. Blue would walk through this area as a meeting was called for the introducing of the other members of the broken gems, as her scanners picked up some coordinates to sulfur's base she would move her palm towards her chin having her arm underneath her elbow thinking," Hmm.. seems rather simple enough.." she'd say while powering of the systems. As blue headed in the direction of his base she would remember the gem mutants creating a tunnel from his base to hers in which then surely by now they were done and probably be patrolling or standing inside sulfurs base.
The scenery seems rather dull in which could pull the joy right of an innocent child if given the circumstances that she is of good heart yet puny will, Blue actually admired it, less terraforming gems that could pop up, she really like to rely on her combat skills of out of anything as merely her healing and nature abilities were a bonus. As her scanners turned on it started to beep in indication that she was close, blue would then see the mansion, it brought memories of here when she had a grand tour of the facility, it wasn't as high tech as hers however it had character indeed. You can always tell something about a person based of there home, as blue would pounce over the black gates she would land planting her foot on the ground, she'd then dust off her navy blue homeworld dress she usual wears(check on profile pic). As she would head towards the door she would then open it, heading inside her prediction would be correct there stood the ten quartz gem mutants, they were in a organized line huffing and puffing while some hissed and screech for apparently nothing really.
Blue would walk towards the two in the middle while rubbing there arms and eyes in there chest," My creations.. good work.." she'd say while then heading towards the back area where the hole would be," Hmm.. walking would be rather long as well, maybe a simple cart would do." she'd say thinking on that matter. Blue would then head back inside on the lobby area in which then she would see a chair where the old corpse she tossed out would be, she would then sit down on the chair awaited for the others to get here.
Sulfur sat in his study, waiting for his allies to arrive. It was taking them some time, but who could blame them. The Wasteland wasn't exactly easy to navigate. Sulfur stood and walked into the bubble room. There were only two bubbles as she shattered all of his opponents. One was Howlite, a gem who he had poofed at Morion's tower. Howlite was one of Sulfur's affiliates, one of his more loyal ones at that. The other bubble contained green shards.
Sulfur popped the bubble. Since gems don't usually reform quickly he took Howlite back into his study. Tossing the gem up and down in his hand he sat on his chair like a throne. Waiting for his affiliates to arrive and for Howlite to form.
After awhile Howlite's gem began to glow and loud laughter filled the room as Howlite formed. He appeared in front of Sulfur. "Not gonna lie boss, not how I thought that was gonna go down. What'd I miss? Where are we anyways?" He started looking around the room. "This place is yours I imagine? It's dark. I like it." Howlite started pacing around trying to figure out what has happened. Howlite thought about Smoky Quartz's comment. "One of these days boss, he's mine. Not now but one day, he's going on my table."
The rain started to blow harder on the green tinted windows, she was use to this actually and would have her right arm on the table holding her chin while her left arm would be on the surface of the table, she tapped the table with her fingers in a rattling like motion flowing her finger in sync together. Suddenly her scanner would beep in which then it formed a visual screen showing that two pure gems were in her vicinity inside the house, she didn't know who but she was going to find out, Blue would look towards the elevator and got out the chair letting it roll off as she moved. As he press the button to go into the elevator she would turn towards her creations," Go patrol around the perimeter, if any gems are sighted you are to poof on sight you ten... go!" she'd demand towards them in which then they would march outside walking around the area. Blue would then head inside the elevator as it opened for her, she would have her arms behind her back while inside the elevator gazing upon the available selection of numbers. As she remembered she had to press number 13 to reach the area in which had the two gems in, Blue would use her right arm to press the button resulting to the doors closing and the mechanism to move upwards.
As she awaited for the doors to open again she would then close her eye contemplating on a few matters of her own in which then the doors opened, she would then head inside seeing the two tables again, one had a crystal ball while the other had sulfur's journal. Blue would head forward through the darkness in which then she emitted a blue light from her gem, she would then see a door in which then she opened it seeing a seemingly study room, her eye darted forward seeing them, Sulfur and another gem. As Blue would turn the light off she would continue to have her arms behind her back a bit confused," Greetings Sulfur, so this is the other member huh, Welcome I am Blue Quartz.." she'd say looking towards Howlite as this would be the first she met him.
"Yes... this is Howlite. Howlite, this is Blue Quartz, the Broken gems'-that is what we are calling the group- scientist." Sulfur said, gesturing toward both of the team members. He then turned to Blue Quartz with a grin. "Now, I have a plan. You can force some of your mutants to sign legal documents, binding them to your hideout. This will make it become an estate, the mutants will be serfs. This will grant you the title of lady. I will pay you money to buy a patch of cheap wasteland. I will build my castle here, forcing some mutants you lend me to sign themselves onto it. Then I will become a Count! The whole purpose of this deal is for the title anyway..."
Sulfur turned to Howlite, realizing he had forgotten him.
"You can be my knight! If you swear loyalty to your count and offer military service you will be my count and will be paid in gem shards." Sulfur smiled.
Howlite walked up to Blue Quartz with a crazy grin. "Hi there nice to meet you. It's so nice to meet one of Sulfur's allies." Then Sulfur said something about Howlite becoming a knight. He smirked. "Sure thing boss." He liked the thought of having a title. A sign of respect. "So what exactly am I supposed to do to swear loyalty? Is it like a document? Or some kind of sacrifice? I'm pretty much good either way. Though the latter may be tricky." He then cackled just thinking about it. "I think you'll make a great Count."
Blue would blink at the sight of Howlite, he was rather an energetic like gem, nonetheless she knew anyone of Sulfurs companions would be of great use towards our group, she would then turn her head sulfur on the matter of his plan," I see, and when exactly do you want to commence this plan, I wouldn't need to force them as they already are attached towards me as there creator however the legal documents would make it official, I can have about 50come here right now if needed" she'd say with a grin. Blue would then think about what he said on the title lady, she like the sound of it" Lady Blue Quartz" , she would then knew where to go to make the purchase of the precise land in which then she looked towards sulfur while smiling," So do you want a patch of land in this vicinity? close towards your mansion?" she'd say while walking towards sulfur's chair and leaning on it with her back.
Sulfur tried to not show his enjoyment of the praise that Howlite was giving him. It was not wise to be flattered easily, but Howlite was quite good at flattery. Maybe this was where his apprentice's potential lies? If this mind trick could be used against their enemies.
"Thank you... Howlite." He said, in the most neutral tone he could muster.
"Blue Quartz, the title is an official thing. Once you have the mutants officially become bound to your estate they are your serfs." Sulfur said, waving his hand in the air as he sat on his throne. "Yes a patch of land in this area would do nicely. Fifty of your minions would make fine serfs! It must be land you give to me, you would have to also purchase it first..."
Sulfur stood and handed her a small jewel, not a gem however.
"This should suffice." Sulfur said. "The land must be at least twenty square miles, I trust that you can do this."
He then turned to Howlite to answer his questions.
"We can discuss that once my estate is complete. I can buy the materials and the shard-quartzes can build it." Sulfur said. "Once I have all of my Serfs we can discuss your official knighthood!"
Dark opened his eyes to see Blue standing there. She hadn't noticed him yet, mainly because he was invisible. He himself couldn't get the elevator to work. But apparently it worked for Blue. Then again, Dark wasn't to good with technology. He never had to use it on homeworld. Back on homeworld he just had to shatter, shatter, and shatter. Well, no use in hiding now. Dark stood up and became visible. He walked in circles around Blue and looked at her more closely. As of now she appeared to be meditating. While, better interrupt her. Dark walked up to her, now completely visible.
Hello there Blue. Didn't see you there.
Dark backed up as the elevator doors opened and stepped out. Sulfur stood with another gem. Undoubtedly the gem who would join the broken gems. Sulfur had spoken of him. His name was... Howlite! Yes, Dark remembered. Sulfur had spoken fondly of him before.
"No problem boss." Suddenly some strange gem entered the room. "Friend of yours?" He walked over to the gem. "Hi there my name's Howlite! I don't know you yet but I have a feeling we'll get along just fine." Howlite then looked around the room then turned to Sulfur. "So this is all of us huh? I assume this is your shadow you mentioned right? Quartz is your scientist, I'm your assassin, and the new guy is the shadow." He then started to laugh a little. "Shoot, now I wish I'd met you two later than now. I could've prepared something for you guys. Something a little more dramatic. But what're you gonna do? I look forward to working with all of you."
Blue blinked as she saw Dark Spinel reappear from no where, she would then suspect that he had a ability in which he would probably be able to cloak himself, blending in to his surrounding," Greeting Dark" she'd say softly. Blue would then look towards Sulfur while nodding," Ill be right back, ill take care of it" she'd say taking the jewel and heading out the room, she would then head towards the elevator pressing the button to go down stairs in the lobby area, she would then head inside the elevator pressing the number one to the lobby floor. As the door would close Blue's body glistening in an instant, she would then change her clothes now as she had to first get some gem mutants to sign of a documents. Blue would be attired with a navy blue blazer with a black tie; she had a white long sleeved t-shirt as the base; She'd have a navy blue skirt that was of bottom knee length.
She would then pull her hair up pulling it in a large pony tail while forming black glasses that covered her eye, she would have on black heels as the door opened, the only thing that could be heard was the click from her heels heading out side. Blue would then hold her finger onto the glasses while saying," Pearl Bring it in, along with the papers, be sure to bring in the sustainable ones as they are more capable of signing" she'd say softly while looking up at the dusk sky filled with dark clouds. Suddenly, from above pearl would come right in time, a giant ship would hover from in the air out came a giant sphere descending down from the base of the ship, blue would then nod towards the pearl allowing her to head back to her hideout. As she headed towards the giant sphere she would press her hand on it in which electrical lines would flow in sync towards the other side shifting the sphere into a flat surface revealing the 50 gem mutants.
It seemed as if they knew they were already going to come due to as soon as they saw Blue, each gem mutant filed in a line awaiting instruction, the gem mutant in the end had the documents with 50 copies of the original she made pearl make back at the base. Blue would then have her arms behind her back walking towards the end of the line where the tall gem mutant stood with the papers in its hands. Blue would then take a pen out from her pocket and handed it towards the gem mutant," Sign and pass it down, the last one to sign it shall have to bring it towards me, once your done head inside the house and patrol the first floor, do not disturb any who are of the Broken gem team got it.." she'd say while turning around waiting for them to finish.
The gem mutants would then do as such, each one signed there own copy of the paper writing there number as there names on the line with the x beside it, after the last one finished it's signing it would hop on its one feet while handing over the paper using its several hands on top of its stomach, Blue would then narrow her eye while smiling," good work.." she'd say softly while bubbling the papers, she would then focus on where sulfur was in his room and tapped the top transporting the bubble right where the team would be. If sulfur noticed she was sure he knew that she was handling business, as Blue would see the gem mutants head in to sulfur's home she was positive that they would be taken care of, probably slaves to sulfur but still treated like pets if proven of good nature.
Blue would then have to find a seller for Sulfur's land, she would then place her hand upon her scanners searching for any whom our sellers of this perimeters lands, empire city wasn't a place to look to as this place was remote however humans could still own places and land in particular all around here. Blue would then spot a shack with her Scanner in which then she would grin heading in that direction, as she passed through dead trees still clicking her heels on the broken ground she would blink seeing the old wooden home," You there, come out!" she shouted towards the window seeing a black figure looking through. Blue would then narrow her eye as the old man actually listened to her, maybe there some obedient humans after all, the door would start to dang, forming clacks and ticks as locks would begin to be removed," oh my.. such basic yet efficient security.." she'd say mentally towards herself while then examining the old man that came out the door.
He didn't seem startled by Blue Quartz appearance as she would look more of human aside form her skin color," What brings you to these parks lil lady.." he'd say while popping his lollipop in his mouth in a repulsive manner oozing saliva from the corner of his mouth. Blue would then move her head towards the side and shook it coming back to reality," I seek to purchase land close towards that mansion" she'd say while pointing towards it, the old man would move his blue cap upwards while looking in the direction blue pointed," how much we talkin" he'd say probably wanting something expensive. Blue would then take out the jewel that sulfur gave her and handed it towards him," I believe this should suffice your needs, I expect 30 square miles.." she'd say softly while grinning towards him.
The Old man would then then jump for joy while saying," Sold! Sold! Sold!" he says with excitement, Blue blinked as the jewel actually was valuable to him, she would then take the deed that the old man given to her and headed back towards the manor. The deed granted the land of west by the manor of couple yards off full of 30 square miles of use, blue would then roll the deed in a scroll like manner bubbling it and sending it off towards sulfur's bubble room with the papers. Blue would give the deed to sulfur allowing him to sign the deed as the land would be for him, since the gem mutants already did there part they were serfs already in place. Blue would head back to the manor seeing many gem mutants all around, some would be speaking to others while some stood on guard.
Blue would tell ten to follow her in which then she would poof them, taking the gems of the ten she would head inside the elevator, as it took her to the 13th floor with a push of a button she would then have the shards in her hands. As the door's opened for her she would then head pass the two tables and back to where everyone else would be," That was quite the hassle, your deed is bubbled in your bubble room along with the papers signed by 50 gem mutants that are currently in your lobby.." she continue," Congratulations, Count Sulfur" she'd say while letting go of the shards and letting the gem mutants reform. As they reformed they would bow down before sulfur hissing and screeching a bit towards themselves as usual, Blue would then glow her body forming into a big giant dress filled of ruffles with a ruffled fedora on her head, the broken gems symbol would be on her chest area in which then she would fold her arms sighing a bit as she was indeed exhausted.
Suddenly, their ally Dark Spinel was in the room. Had he been invisible? It was true that he didn't know much, if anything about Dark Spinel, but an invisibility power? At first he had simply chosen the broken gems because of their mentality and loyalty. After getting to know each of them Sulfur began to see that they did, in fact, have talents that could help the team. Dark Spinel, like Howlite, had been compromised by the crystal gems. He was quite sure that Dark wasn't as attached to them as Howlite was. His apprentice was a broken soul and broken souls can easily make bonds. It seemed that Howlite had made a bond with him rather than feeling like a tool. He hoped that their bonds would not weaken the team.
"Yes Howlite, this is Black Spinel, but we call him Dark Spinel, or even dark." Sulfur said, gesturing to Dark. He noticed how friendly Howlite was being to Dark. Could Howlite really be as crazed and heartless as he seemed when shattering corrupted gems. Sulfur for some reason doubted this, he was unsure that Howlite had some master plan and that this attitude was but a façade. Still, Howlite was loyal, that was what mattered. "I assure you Howlite no drama is necessary."
While the two were mingling Blue seemed more prepared to accomplish the task at hand. With a quick goodbye she left the room. Sulfur waved as she left but said nothing. He had planned for this to be a long term project but she was apparently ready to do it right then and there. She must have really wanted the title of Lady. It was quite a bit later that she returned. He clapped, impressed that she had done the entire thing so quickly.
"Ah many thanks Blue Quartz you get the job done!" Sulfur said smiling. "But I am not a count yet, I first need to build my estate. I should almost have the money, your gem mutants that you lended me can work with the construction just fine."
"Sounds good boss." Then he studied this 'dark'. "Interesting. You seem to be uh how do I say this.... a little on the serious side." Then Howlite grinned. "I hope you don't mind me having fun once in awhile." Then he looked at the Quartz. "I doubt you and I will have a problem. You seem very mellow." Then he looked to Sulfur. "Where did you find these two? Look at us. We're gonna be on top of the world one day! I can't wait to start the carnage." He licked his lips as he thought about what was soon to come. He was a killer and it was about to be his busy season.
Dark looked at Howlite. He seemed very... happy. Was this really the bloodthirsty apprentice that Suflur had spoken so fondly of? Then again, that last bit made Dsrk rethink his opinions of him. Psycho. Thats what he was. Psycho.
So, Count Sulfur. What exactly do you have in mind for our little group here?
Dark thought about what he did have in mind. He basically had just shattered a bunch of gems with Sulfur. He knew little about his actual plans. Well, he was about to find out. Along with the rest of the Broken Gems. He looked back at Howlite.
And yes Howlite, I'm not all serious. He said with a hint of a smirk. Dark wondered what Blue had done. Probably had done something with the mutants. Dark had seen a few on his way here. Dark looked back at Sulfur, awaiting his response.
Melody: as usual, just waiting for posts

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
