Gaspeite was impressed at how sophisticated Pearl gems could be, it wasn't all the time that you'd see a gem whip out clones of itself and start exploring the area. But the matter wasn't there, it was to help Plum get her memory back and show her what this world became. It would sure be a shock after everything that happened on Earth, as the gems was absent when the rebellion and corruption happened.
"Actually as a troop commander I must say we have seen rare times a soldier bound to an artifact, going berserk before cooling down. This is why I despise seeing unfairly bound gems to artifacts... But about her grand Clarity... she has been away from Earth for multiple human years, but came back to her moon base, as we shall explain to you shortly..
Gaspeite scratches her hair, trying to find the words to use as Plum Pearl awaits for good news. "The Earth colony has been going places since a few years ago... It's better if we show you what the M tower is rather than a whole explanation. I'll prepare a slideshow on my screen while we walk back so you can understand better everything that had happened these past years from information I gathered."

"M tower is actually human spire... "
He was going to explain it, even though Gaspeite didn't want to. "Humans evolved quite a lot over last few centuries... their numbers are in billions and they created quite an interesting culture and even really interesting technologies... I think you will be quite surprised when you see it. Even though their technology is quite primitive compared to Gem technology, it's still quite impressive..."
He made a short pause, then continued
"The colonisation of Earth is currently... uhm... it's complicated... there is a gem war on Earth... some gems rebelled against Diamonds, they cut Earth from Home world... stopped the production of new gems... so right now Earth is a colony in name only I'm afraid..."
Everything Plum was hearing was flying right in the face of everything she knew.. or rather thought she knew about gems, colonies, and even the planet she stood upon. How could that be?? The primitive organics who she had last seen in wood and plaster houses, burning oil for light and riding beasts for transportation were, in the span of 200 solar cycles of this world, now numbering in the billions, and building spires, and developing tech and and.. her mind worked on some rudimentary math for a moment, comparing the rate of technological advancement of what she was just told about humans, against what she was taught about gem history on home world, and it was staggering. If what Chip and Gaspeite said was true , then humanity, primitive as it still was... was still advancing faster than the gems ever had. It was almost humbling.
Then Chip changed the tone a little bit, speaking about a war, a rebellion? How had this happened? The gem empire was supposed to represent the pinnacle of a racial and cultural unity seen among any sentient species. But now, colonization efforts had been stopped, and worse..
Plum followed along after her new companions as they worked along the path towards the warp pad. She had been relatively silent since they started walking away from the beach. She wasn't trying to be rude or any such thing, it was simply a lot to take in. As the marble warp pad gradually came into view, she found herself staring at it somewhat balefully and unsure as to the wash of new experiences and situations on the other side, waiting to barrage her senses. The next few weeks would doubtless be a time for a lot of learning and catch up and adaptation on her part, but even though she was just a pearl, she was a gem as well.. and adaptability was their strong suit, or so the propaganda in her head played out.
Pausing a moment before stepping onto the pad she takes a deep breath and speaks mostly to herself although they are doubtless heard if either of the other gems are paying much attention... "Okay Plum. Okay, you can do this. You're the pride of the Perfect Pearls foundation.. you're made for anything the universe can throw at you.. although, you had a master back then when the universe threw this whole planet and everything that's happened while on it,at you."

Pearl was shocked to be sure. It was a lot to take at once, but Chip felt like he was right when he told her the truth. This way she at least had some short time to cope with that. But right now he could't do anything to help her... except talking to her of course... "Don't worry, I know you are probably quite... overwhelmed right now, but I will help you to get your barrings. But right now it's time to go..."
He said and thought about the warp pad inside the M tower. As always the while light enveloped them, transporting them nearly instantly from the empty Mask Island to the lobby of the biggest and tallest building in the Empire city...

The fire opal didnt ned to do this as quickly, it aurely overwhelmed Plum to space... she heard a glimpse of posessive manners inside his talkwhich she disnt really like. If Chip was like Morion, it wouldn't be a surprise if he just used pearl as a personal servant and had her stand around to look pretty and answer to his ordera like a... well, like a slave.
"WE will help you. Theres a lot of things in the current world that you should know, and it will surely be better if you had multiple views on everything. I would be happy to help you understand everything you might want to know!"
Gaspeite said, walking on the warp pad along the group.
~ "Don't worry I know you are probably quite,overwhelmed right now, but I will help you to get your barrings. But right now it's time to go" ~
~ WE will help you. Theres a lot of things in the current world that you should know, and it will surely be better if you had multiple views on everything. I would be happy to help you understand everything you might want to know! ~
Plum let out another breath and nodded then watched the pad beneath her feet glow to life, then glanced over towards chip, who had his hands gestured out to the sides, indicating he was controlling the warp pad.
Everything then went white for an instant as the beam of light touched down on the pad, and engulfed the travelers. When she opened her eyes, she was staring out at the space in between spaces, that was beyond the warp stream beam. Every so often a flash of light crossing close by their own beam, which must have been another traveler in the system every so often. But there was little time to wonder who they might be and what they are like, as another flash of light then deposited them on another warp pad, the surroundings very very different from the place they had just left.
Plum blinked her eyes and stared up at the hollow central column of the building.. so this was it.. the human spire known as M - Tower..
Morion: Forever here, just hiding among the shadows Chip

Melody: The whole forum is just a big shadow right now lol Time to turn on the light...

Morion: The dark is generous. The greatest of its comforts is the illusion that dark is temporary: that every night brings a new day. Because it’s the day that is temporary. Day is the illusion. The dark’s patience is infinite. Eventually, even stars burn out.

Chip the Fire Opal: And the whole existence will wither with the heat death of the universe...

njrk97: inb4 Steven Universe 2 gets announced and causes a influx
Oct 4, 2022 12:07:54 GMT
njrk97: more seriously though, considering its popularity, i would not be surprised to see another show or something in the future, be it spin off or something else, certainly not within a few years, but eventually.
Oct 20, 2022 3:06:39 GMT
Morion: Chip is right. It is dead like the dodo. Its "popularity" never skyrocketed; attracted a small fanbase but not enough to not to be cenceled after the 5th season. The animation was weak at best with a story of giant plotholes. She-Ra filled the void it left
Oct 30, 2022 20:12:47 GMT
Morion: I ment it filled SU's niche spot as a "Woke show", showing LBGTQ themes, etc etc etc. Tho' She-Ra had an actual plot and (of course it is subjective) better animation. But while SU scratched the surface -->
Nov 13, 2022 5:37:31 GMT
Morion: eg. the Gems waren't 'female" perse, just AI with projected hardlight bodies, and "female" Rose to male Steven transition or Stevonnie "gendeerless/androgionoussness",Ruby and Sapphire "same gender" realtionship (they don't actually had a gender)was topped
Nov 13, 2022 5:39:40 GMT
Morion: by The Legend of Korra for example. But in She-Ra it had a prominent focus point, showing Bow's two dad as a normal pair, the realtionships, ands so on (Scorpia and Perfuma, Micah and Angella to name a few) heck even managed to portray -->
Nov 13, 2022 5:41:40 GMT
Morion: Rogelio, Kyle and Lonnie threeway relationship as a working and normal one. ND Stevenson comfirmed, Rogelio and Kyle were a thing and Lonnie was part of it too! It took balls of steel to portray THAT in a kid's show,even with subtile hints but they did it.
Nov 13, 2022 5:45:02 GMT
Morion: Sure it wasn't perfect show, but quickly filled the "void" and niche SU left and way better in my humble oppinion with better story and superior animation (again subjective)

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
