"I see. Now here's your problem. What exactly is preventing an anarchist like me from just killing you now inside this store? I mean sure you could do numerous things to escape but that would just be pointless now wouldn't it? It'd be much easier if you just accept what's coming to you." He had her. If this gem had an ounce of logic inside her gem she'd just get it over with. Running away or trying to play hero only prolongs the inevitable. It would just be stupid of her to try otherwise. He couldn't wait to kill this gem.
Emerald shook her head. "Nothing really is preventing you from killing me that is true. True running would be pointless to you, but for me it would be the best. It will allow me to see how you react. That is what science is seeing the reaction. So if you will excuse me I have some corrupted gems I need to go study." She pointed her bow at a fire extinguisher next to him and shot it. While the store was being covered in the powder she ran outside heading towards the woods were at least she could do a bit more. She blended in with another crowd trying to make herself small as possible as she walked through it.
As the extinguisher exploded he was covered in powder. "Well that's just great!" He brushed himself off and resumed the hunt. He started scanning a large crowd of humans. "Where are you?" Then his vision picked up on her signature. He had her now. He took aim with his rifle. He lined it up with her arm. It wouldn't kill but it was quite painful and may stun her. Unfortunately some humans were in the way. Luckily he had a solution for that. He loaded his cold shot. Once he fired it, it curved in an arc over the humans and towards her left arm.
Emerald had to cover her mouth so she wouldn't let out a scream when she felt the shot hit her arm. She stayed still for a second but she shook her head. She couldn't stay here it will be like a duck sitting on the water. She wrapped her arm with a scarf before heading back with the crowd into the woods. When she finally touched dirt she sighed happily and began making her way towards the warp pad to get far far away from him. She kept glancing up and back to see if he was following her she had summon her bow again just in case she could get him by surprise and maybe get another arrow into him.
As she took off Howlite smiled. "Trying to hide from a hunter by going into the woods? For a scientist she's not a very logical thinker." He followed her into the woods and got up into the trees. He then spotted a warp pad. "I don't think so." He aimed his next shot. This time for her foot. He prayed that he didn't miss. The round was rather slow moving which meant it could be avoided. But hopefully she'll be distracted by running to notice the round. He took a breath and pulled the trigger.
Emerald looked up when she heard the deers in the woods start to run she only saw them do that when a Hunter let off a shot. Her eyes widened and she moved behind a tree the bullet didn't miss her all the way it did graze the side of her leg. She bit back a scream before taking a deep breath calming down. "Dude are you ever going to give up? Do you not think that all this energy could be used for something else?" She pulled out one of her arrows pointing it up in the trees gathering a bit of energy in case she needed to call upon the earth to help her. She moved slowly towards the pad staying with the trees.
"Where's the fun in that?" He loaded another round. "I'm afraid I can't let you leave. Just come with me and get it over with. You do realize this is your best option right? Sure you could run now. I may not see you for awhile. But one day I will find you. And then we'll be right back where we started. Do you really wanna play this game with me or just let me do my job?" Howlite personally liked the second option better but if he had to wait he would. She couldn't go off planet and Howlite was always moving around. Eventually he'd see her again.
Smithsonite had been pondering his life for some time now. He constantly cursed himself now, loathing everything he did. Ever since he had met Red Emerald, things only got worse. And he did not need bad luck for things to go bad in his eyes. As he paced through the town, he saw a mysterious looking black gem carrying what looked like a sniper rifle, he didn't care much until he saw who he was aiming at, Red Emerald. His heart sank, the last thing he wanted was to lose one of the few gems that understood him. He turned his good luck on and ran straight to Howlite, hoping things would work out. Hope was all he had left in this pointless rock after all.
Emerald felt the spike of magic in the air and turned to look around to see what was the cause was. Her eyes widen when she saw who it was. She cursed inside her head moving from her tree taking aim at Howlite again. "Of course he would show up." Emerald sighed a little. "I do not want to die there is to much to learn still. A lot of things that I can help do. Like stop you from hurting another gem. I don't know why you want to hunt me and want to hurt other gems, but there is always another option then proofing gems." She lowered her weapon and tilted her head back to give him a clean shot hoping he would stop if the fun left.
He was about to kill her when Howlite noticed something. Someone else was here. He was gonna fight when he remembered something Sulfur told him. Don't fight battles you know you can't win. He sighed. "Be glad there's two of you. One day... You'll be alone. And I'll be there. With a bullet in your gem. Until then..." He took a bow and then proceed to the warp pad. "Au revoir!" Then his from vanished. He was rather upset that he couldn't kill her. She would've made such a prize. He'd wait. He'd find her again....
Emerald sighed in relied when he left glad that he could see that it would have ended badly for him. She leaned back agsint the tree looking up at the sky shaking her head a little. "I think I won't settle down here the town is way way to crazy for me. I think it be better out here for me in the woods maybe I can set up a little base." Emerald looked over at Smithstone. "Did you really think running at a guy with a gun was a good idea? I know you have your luck Smith but what if you ran out half way through he could have poofed you or even worse shattered you. Just please think next time okay?"
Smithsonite ran up to her, his gem still glowing brightly. He sighed in relief now that she was safe and sound, he almost lost a friend. After listening to her warning, he giggled and smiled at her. he remembered all of the thoughts that raced through his head as he was trying to save her a few minutes ago.
"Sorry, that's the most thinking I've done in a long time. If I would've thought anymore I could have just stood there and done nothing. Nevertheless, I'm glad you're alright."
He thought a little more about it, he supposed it would have been bad if he did in fact run out of luck, but still, Emerald was in danger. He could not stand the thought of losing an ally.
Emerald nodded her head looking over at him. "It is fine you are still adjusting to the earth you been here for about a week. It will take time learning how to be free allowing to do things you were never made for. Heck I am not supposed to know the things I do about plants, but I got planted in the wrong kinder garden, and I came out defective as they called me. Though I proved that being Defective could work in the favor of them." Emerald looked at the warp pad. "I hope I don't run into him again. I don't know how a gem marking like that anywhere in the world. We have to keep an eye out for more like it."
Meanwhile from the shadows "Wow how can they be happy on this miserable planet..whatever, I still have a mission to carry out" the voice disappears "Whats so good about this planet, the only reason i'd stay is if Moonstone issued me to...." A gem was walking in the streets "Wait....what's this thing" She stops at Fish Stu's pizza "Piiza? man Humans are dumb" She continues walking down the street, from behind she just looks like a girl with orange hair and a BAD sunburn "Why's everyone staring at me? are Humans THAT stupid...Whatever you have a mission, Find Rose, Get Rose..and Go...Home...You know what'll happen to her if you don't, I don't want her to get in trouble Cuz of me.."

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

*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
