The rocky highlands of Scotland, a place Titanite once used to frequent, visited once again. Having recently endured a series of stressful events, Titanite came here to unwind, as he had done many a time in the past. Gazing across the untouched landscape riddles with large, overbearing boulders and patches of lush green grass. It had no real qualities that made it what others would describe as 'relaxing' but Titanite felt at home here.
Something didn't quite feel right however. The same feeling that'd struck him time and time again whenever something awful was to happen washed over him. ...Well he had it quite frequently and nothing bad happened those times, but he still glanced around cautiously just in case something was to burst out of nowhere to assault him.
"I swear if something jumps out of nowhere to assault me again I'm gonna lose my goddamn mind..."
Titanite murmured as he looked around the place. He was quite frustrated today due to having recently had to fight some particularly infuriating corruptions around this area before being able to relax. He hoped with all his heart that nothing would try to surprise him. ...Though we all know that was guaranteed to happen.
Red Spinel watched from a long distance. He summoned his crossbows and put them into sniper mode. This was it, the moment he was waiting for. He waited until the gem looked away leaving the perfect opening. He took aim at Titanite. He took a moment to think about the best strategy. He scanned him with his visor. He knew that his weapon could deflect his projectiles. Maybe, just maybe, he could land a hardlight bolt on him. It probably wouldn't be enough to destabilize his form, she he needs to figure out what body part to hit. He aimed one crossbow at the back of his head, and one at his left thigh. He then fired both crossbows at once after he locked onto the gem, hoping to poof him.
Titanite thought for a moment he heard something in the distance, before out of nowhere he sensed two projectiles flying into his ESP, with barely enough time to react, he created a current of wind and just within the nick of time he blew the projectiles out of the way. He looked around the place frivolously to find who had done this, he was downright furious.
"Alright! Whoever the hell did that show yourselves!
He was infuriated by this, he'd had enough of things attacking him and wasn't about to put up with some other gem shooting bolts at him from a distance. He couldn't quite see where they were, but he figured if they fired again he'd see where they'd come from, he impatiently looked around the place, waiting for the assailant to fire again.
Red Spinel watched as Titanite blew the bolts away. He knew this wasn't going to be easy. He noticed as Titanite grew alert to his failed ambush attempt. He stayed hidden though. He didn't cloak himself, however. If he can't land a shot on him from afar, then he might either have to fire his rapid fire crossbows at him up close. After all, he wouldn't be able to keep up forever. If that fails, then he can try to melee him with the hardlight bolts. He waited a bit, considering whether or not to reveal himself. He finally decided to do so. He jumped and landed about 10 feet in front of him.
"Keh! We meet again! This time, there is nobody to save you! I am gonna finish this for real!"
He put his crossbows into rapid fire mode and fired a salvo of hardlight bolts from both crossbows at Titanite.
Titanite growled angrily as Red Spinel landed in front of him. This gem had tested his temper beforehand and was doing even moreso this time. The fact that it was this gem of all the possible assailants that was attacking him infuriated him beyond belief.
"You've got a lot of ner-"
However before he could finish his sentence he was suddenly set upon by a barrage of hardlight bolts, and without thinking he surrounded himself in a large, spiralling pillar of wind, redirecting the barrage in another direction. He had an expression which could only be described as unadultered fury at this point. As the vortex subsided he angrily grunted at Red Spinel.
"Alright that's it! I've had enough of you! I WANT YOU OUT OF HERE!"
As he said this he began creating and succinctly throwing large whirlwinds at the Spinel, not thinking for a second that there was a much better way to deal with this. He also did not realise however that this relentless usage of his ability was going to mess him up and render him unable to fight. If this barrage was not to succeed, he was destined to fail.
This was going to be an interesting fight, as winds whipped around and rendered his bolts useless. He never thought this would happen. He was extremely surprised, but he pulled himself back together.
"Keh! You are persistent! I will crush you like the little Crystal Gem pest you are!"
He took out a hardlight bolt from one of his crossbows. He flipped it with his fingers and held it like he was going to stab Titanite with it.
"I won't go away THAT easily! I am gonna turn you in to Morion!"
Then, at that moment, Titanite sent large whirlwinds at him. He crouched down to make himself a little heavier, then he rolled behind him. Immediately, he thrusted the hardlight bolt at Titanite's back.
As the whirlwinds whooshed clean past Red Spinel and he rolled behind him, Titanite went to move out of the way, but he for some reason couldn't move his body. As it was too late, he realised that he'd effectively played himself, unnecessarily exhausting himself in his anger. He felt a wave of anguish wash over himself as he felt something he hadn't felt in a good seven hundred years, something piercing his hardlight form. Barely able to act as he felt his form destabilise, he glances back at Spinel at weakly mutters, a wistful smirk on his face.
"So that's it huh...? Well mark my words pal... I'll... get you back... for this..."
After he weakly uttered his last word, his form destabilised and his gem gently clacked against the floor as his form gave way. It would seem that for the first time in a long time, he'd been defeated.
Wow, that was extremely easy! Easier than he ever expected! Red Spinel watched as Titanite was starting to lose his form. He couldn't help but laugh at how weak that gem was. He listened to his words and laughed harder. To him, that gem was a joke.
"HAHAHA!!! You are a pitiful excuse for a Crystal Gem! Also, you will never get back at me, at least not where you e going!"
He watched as Titanite's form gave way as his gem hit the ground. At last, his first victim! He picked up his gem and surrounded it in a red bubble. He looked at the gem encapsulated inside it and smiled crookedly. He tapped the bubble to send it to Morion at the M Tower.
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.

*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
