Light was exited like a kid in Christmas day. He had stars instead of his eyes "Really?! You are the best Lady Para!" He even jumped a little. He wasn't a fan of fighting but that way he would be able to beat more powerful enemies. He would be able to protect Lady Para and he wouldn't need to regenerate so often. It was making him feel tired and weak.
After a while Light could see a human and Bloodstone. Finnaly familiar face. It made him a little bit more calm. "Yes Mr Human, my name is Light, thank you for everything. It was nice to meet you." Human gave them a disc-like Gem communicator to them. Pearl was courius what was inside this little machine. "Hmmm..."
When Human left Bloodstone introtuced herself to Lady Para "Bloody! How are your cow friends?" Light become serious though. He still had no idea what was Howlite's ship doing here "It is nice that you give us so many cool things but...? Why there is a Howlite's ship? Is his owner also here?" Said Light with nervous voice.
Bloodstone blushed a little and smiled when she saw Light again, laughing nervously
"They're doing alright Light..thank you for asking."
Octi smiled and straightened herself out, turning her attention back to Para
"Alright, well yes, I'm in charge of bringing in the shipment. Morion didn't really clarify to me what all was yours but the impression that I got was that the ship and at least part of the gear belongs to you and Light. I wasn't told what all was on board, just to make sure that it landed here at Beach city safely without any major issues.."
She looked down at the disk communicator that Para held, slowly piecing things together
"I feel like that might be a direct comm to Morion...or someone else important. You mind turning it on or shall I?"

Cow... friends? While she didn't know what Light was on about, it was interesting that he and Blood new one another. It was obvious enough that this was no coincidence, Morion was too clever to not set this up on purpose. Not to mention Morion had said something about this Bloodstone, "You two know one another? Lovely, perhaps you two can catch up while we move the supplies. Though I do hope that the Howlite is not present. But first..." She looked down at the communicator in her hand, wondering why Morion wouldn't just show up in person. Then again, he was an infamous figure. Him showing up in Beach City as himself may pose a number of questions, both at him and herself.
If anyone had answers it would be him though, so she activated the device and waited to see how it reacted.
Light calmed down when he heared that cows are doing fine... and that Howlite isn't here. However something was bugging him. Why would Morion gave them Howlite's ship? Broken gem will probably come back for it and this won't be a nice conversation. There was also one problem, how did they get this ship? Did they hurt broken gems? Are their group still a thing? They were scaring Pearl to do. It was hard to believe that Howlite used to be a Crystal Gem. Why did he left, why...?
"Ohhh I will take care of this Lady Para! Some boxes with materials can't beat me! With the help of my holograms... and Bloody of course. It would be stupid if I tried to do this by myself You don't need to worry"
The disc was a holocommunicator Basically a Gem technology... but not quite Padparadascha could recognise the Gem holo device ,but the communicator was more like a human design Actually in the Master Artisan's hands was a hibrid techonolgy, the love child of several scavenged Gem-tech (that served as basics) and the Human ingenuity. After activating, the little hologram of the Smoky Quartz apeared above the oval eye-like porjector
"Greetings Lady Padparadascha! Light..."
He nodded, i wasn't a recording
"I wish I could deliver the ship myself, but tho' our last meeting with Padparadascha was more than enjoyable... in Beach City... - he smiled - I tought my presence would cause panic. And considerin Padparadascha menditoned she made several Crystal Gem enemies, I came to the conclusion one of my lieutenant will be a better escort."
The Smoky Quartz smiled and rested on his cane with both hands
"I hope you are satisfied my dear Artisan! May our Aliance be a prosperous one! And in that spirit I want to ask you a question! After all, you are a genious and master craftsman... "
"You all aware of my plan to save as many humans, gems, animals and plants with the Derelict as possible and give them a new Planet. We already talked about a cloacin device, strong enough to hide a planet... or a whole Solar System to protect their new home. Not to mention the Gem refugees whos future is on that planet with the Humans. The protective shiled and planetary deffense system will be the next logical step... or a Dyson Sphere; but one step at a time, am I right? Good."
But the Smoky Quartz face and voice become serious
"But tho' my optimistim is deep like the ocean... I'm not a complete fool. I had to accept the possibility, maybe we can't leave this system, or even a Planet. Sabotages, or Crystal Gem terroists... the Derelict is a titanic ship. Thus a titanic target. So I tought we need a Plan B. Or as I call it, Project: Exodus. My... Our Human friends are working on it, but their kowledge and technology is somewhat limited, so I need your expertise Lady Padparadascha! The basic idea is came from a dream Me and several other Gems had before. One of them was Bloodstone here. The other one was Lady Chyrsocolla. We had a shared dream... dreams. About ourselves. Possibilites. Now, the Sapphires oracular abilites is from the fact, several possible futures exist. And it is a known fact, at least in the higher circles among Gems, there are Gem Artifacts exist with abilites, like temporal manipulations. Now, Her Majesty's, White Diamond's Grand Inquisitor, his excellency, the exalted Opalite demonstrated the ability to phase out objects, and the existaentce of pocket dimensions. And our space crafts are using engines that bends spacetime.... Put two and two together..."
Morion looked the trio with serious eyes
"Possible futures mean possible realities... The rest is technology and science. Tell me Artisan, what do you think, it is possible to build a ship, or Gate, that allows us to travel between these realities? And find one, where the Gem Empire never existed... or the Gems are a benevolent race? Or the Diamonds are the Human's friends? The possibilites are infinite... if we can't leave this world to give our human an Gem friends a new home, lets find a better world. A better universe....
Bloodstone was admittedly shocked at the plan that Morion was suggesting, it was both fascinating but she had no idea if it would actually work or if it was something that would be possible
"Y-yes I'd like to do that plan if possible but...the way for that to actually get pulled off is astounding. It would mean that the tech would be taken to whole new levels!"
Octi was already trying to figure out if the earth scientists would be able to do that easily or not. It would surely take work but..they're already quite good at their work...the possibilities here were quite literally endless! Who knows how well this would work..

"Invaluable as always Light, what would I do without you." She turned to the hologram that appeared above the communicator, "Greetings Morion. It it best you didn't come, I had hoped to keep our deal somewhat secretive. Though that may be difficult with this spectacle..." She listened in silence from then on, simply nodding in confirmation now and then.
When Morion got through his idea Para was silent for quite some time, thinking to herself while examining Blood's reaction. Eventually she did speak up, "What you are suggestion Morion... it isn't even as simple as calling it grand. What we spoke of before was grand, but within our current realm of understanding. What you are suggestion is nothing short of hypothetical, most generous I could call it on the fringe of our scientific capabilities." Again she fell silent for a moment, "That being said... I suppose it is hypothetically possible."
Then something dawned on her, something that gave her a sort of inspiration beyond grim determination, "I'm sure you have your own team, but I would like to look into this personally Morion. I think many problems could be solved with such a device, and I may know where to start. But it wouldn't be easy, nor would it be... well how do I put this..." She looked at Blood and Light, "Give me a moment dears, why don't you catch up with one another."
She walked away from them both so that she was out of earshot of them both, "What I am about to propose may seem extreme, but I don't think such a device could come without a serious cost. As you know I am an artisan, as such I have worked with gem artifacts rather frequently. I think I could fashion a device to test some initial ideas, but it would require a power source. And not just a simple power source for a ship, I mean..." she double checked no one was listening, "I mean it would require an intact sapphire. If I could obtain one and use it for an artifact, I may be able to test the limits of their powers. Such a request is not easy, especially given their rank, but do you think that could be done?"
"You would probably not figure out that carpets can get on fire! It was probably not the best gift for you... Forge is full of lava."
Light was kinda confused. Was this plan really posible? He used to read a lot of interesting things in hw's computer long time ago. There were also theorys about another dimensions... However even if it is posible. Will they have enough time? Noone know when Pink Diamond will try to destroy all life on Earth. He was listening and tried to not interrupt. He just said something at the end "It is pretty interesting... but do we hany idea how does it work? Figuring this out might take YEARS if not more. I am afraid we do not have enough time."
Para said that Morion's theory about another dimensions is hypothetically possible. Light was schocked "Wait... REALLY? Lady Para you are full of suprises." His friend decided to have a little private talk with Morion "Sure! I and Bloody will be waiting for you." Pearl looked at Bloodstone "Do you think that there are nintendo games and animals in another dimensions?"
The Smoky Quart tried to hold back his smile, but it was hard Padparadascha treated Light Mocha Pearl like a child... or a servant More precisely... she treated him like a Pearl Go and play, young one, let the adults do the talk.. Of course in his eyes, the situation was a bit like that ...while he always told everything - some things a lots of times - to Pearl and treated like a friend The irony was too sweet to not to smile on it^^ Naturally, maybe he saw the whole situation from a different angle, but non the less, it was enojable
"The humans are actually closer to this than you think my dear artisan! I sent you a copy about their research, it is inside of this device. The Human Peridots tried to explain it to me. A sec, I have it on my screen..."
He read it
"In theory it is possible to build a machine wich is capable of generating an Einstein-Rosen-Podolsky Bridge, a gateway connecting one dimension from another. People and objects can pass through this gateway from one parallel dimension to the next. The Einstein-Rosen Bridge is a tunnel connecting two universes. It was developed by physicists Albert Einstein and Nathan Rosen. Two smart Human Peridots. They came up with the idea that if an object had strong enough gravity, it could warp space, creating a tear that would link parallel universes. The only known object in the universe - at least by them at that time - with that kind of force is a Black Hole. Anyone who could enter the Black Hole would find an opening or "wormhole" that would take them to another universe. That's the Einstein-Rosen Bridge. The problem with the Bridge is that the same force that warps space would crush anyone who tried to enter the black hole. Until recently, it was believed that no one could do it. But in 1963, mathematician Roy Kerr came up with a way that someone could approach the black hole, avoiding the force, to enter the wormhole."
Morion closed his screen
"Of course they never knew the capabilites of the Gem's technology... I can't really say, I can understand the science behind these theories, but even I can see the similarities with our engines and Gem powers..."
He nodded Then listened the Artisan's private words
"If you need a Sapphire to your work, I will provide it to you. But since you were a Crystal Gem, I'm sure you can locate one and give me coordinates where to send my hunters to capture that Rebel..."
The smoky Quartz smiled like a cat. Or shark.
"Oh I'm sure a Sapphire could forsee this and her own fate, but a Gem's noble sacrifice is a small price for Peace! After all, who wouldn't sacrifice a Gem to save a Civilisation? A whole Planet? Don't tell me you wouldn't sacrifice Light Mocha Pearl if his death could mean the end of this war...! No more war, no more fighting, no more sacrifices or losses... only peace and quiete to work. I'm sure he would gladly die for this noble cause! But I doubt your experinents are fatal... and using her Gem in an artifact is only a temporary thing for that Sapphire.
Bloodstone sighed as she watched Para walk off, understanding how there may be matters best kept secret..
"Oh I'm sure there are Light. After all, technically speaking, there's a dimension for...well everything. If you want a dimension with exclusively animals, there's more than likely one that exists. If you wanted a dimension with...erm...nintendo games, then I'm sure there's one for them too."
Octi admittedly was not as aware of the science behind the theories like Morion was, but they had a general understanding of how the concept worked. The more widely known idea was that for every choice that you did, there was going to be a dimension or universe where the opposite of the choice that you did existed instead of what the original you ACTUALLY did

"Hmmm... I will read up on their research before making a proper judgement but my idea was that an intact sapphire gem might be able to be provide as a sort of... how do I put this. Imagine it like how a navigation system works for a ship, it could possible see and then pinpoint a specific point in time and possibly in space. After all they can see multiple timelines, it only makes sense they could differentiate them for a system." Her look turned from curious to serious, "By no means will I be giving you a target within the rebel's ranks or any other place. Even if it is temporary I refuse to have that decision on my shoulders. If you can supply me with one, preferably willing, then I will use it to my best abilities but if not then I will simply have to make due."
She almost turned to move back and stop the conversation there, but Morion's next comment stopped her cold. For a long moment she seemed to be thinking it over in her head before turning back to the communicator. Her face was rather reminiscent of when she stormed into his office previously, "There is much I am willing to sacrifice, that includes both myself and any standing I have with those around me in order to provide a better world for all of us." There was a definite hint of anger below the surface now, "But by no means will Light be harmed at any point of this plan. I would sooner see myself shattered before he came to harm from our en-devours." Surprising even herself with how heated she got over the topic Para calmed herself down and fixed her hair, "I hope I made myself clear."
With that said she returned to the others, "I apologize for that, I believe we are ready to move the shipment yes?"
"That sounds so cool! However isn't manipulating in another dimensions dangerous? Just like with time? Like I saie, we have no idea how exactly it works." Light took a moment to think about Bloodstone's words "exclusively animals. He started thinking how could animaks there look. It would be amazing to see inteligent dinosaurs in universe were space rock didn't kill them.
Para finnaly come back. She was ready for work "No problem Lady Para!" Light summoned 5 holo pearls "I and loody can take care of this! It is just few boxes and a ship... right, did Morion tell you why did we get this ship? I really see no point in this. He want us to change it for a repair parts?"
Post by Forge Master Para on Mar 25, 2017 21:17:07 GMT
Para simply nodded, "Very well, I will start taking stock. As for the ship, we shall consider it a gift I suppose. I'm sure I can find a use for it. It might even be fun modifying it~" While she had her own private shuttle in Homeworld's services, it never really was hers. Sure she could decorate it, but all the systems and piloting was handled by gems made for the job. Learning how to rework and upgrade a ship might serve as an interesting hobby.
She turned and looked at the beach, "If you wouldn't mind, I would prefer if you simply place the ship's contents a little ways up the beach. Light and I can take it from there." Para then took out two rectangle devices that floated up in front of her and formed a holographic screen similar to a scroll. She watched over what was being taken off the ship and set down, starting a list of everything that was sent.
"Of course Lady Para." Light wasn't sure about this 'gift'. Howlite was always... well... pretty destructive. Light didn't want to see Howlite's face when he realize that he and Para have his ship. It was everything for him, his home, his vehicle, his world and probably the place for his alcohol. Light was just afraid that he miht hurt Lady Para or him. He decided to listen to Para's orders. Shewas the most clever lerson he ever met, she know what she is doing.
Light stopedworking for few seconds and touched Human's shoulder "Mr Human? It is weird to call you 'Mr Human'. What is your name? It would be more polite if I was using your real name. I would be mad if someone was calling me 'Mr space rock with body made out of light.'" At the same time Holo pearls and humans were doing the job
Melody: how are you doing? Are you going to make a character in here?

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
