Something happened inside Light. He started to yell with tears in his eyes "I don't want to be your brother! I don't want to have anything to do with you! After we leave the cave Morion will take you and decide what to do! Far away from me!"
Light turned to hologram "Didn't I tell you to cover his mouth?!" Emotionles hologram listened this time. Usually Light wasn't even yelling to the holograms that can't get sad. There was something that Pearl was hiding inside himself. It was a problem that noone knew besides him. This problem was the conflict with Howlite, Pearl had no reason to like him. The only thing that gem gave to Pearl was pain, big pain (I love breaking people's feelings ^^)
Another gem monster that looked like mole attacked, it destroyed the holo pearl that was covering Howlite's mouth...
Howlite cried harder as Pearl shouted. Suddenly a mole attacked. So Howlite did something stupid. He leaped in front of the mole. Already badly wounded. You wanna hurt him? You gotta go through me! He summoned his rifle. The gem was exposed. Just one bullet was all it took. The mole darted towards Howlite. He jumped up onto it's head where the gem was. He pointed just next to it to only poof it. He pulled the trigger and fell to the ground as it poofed. He slowly limped towards the gem he picked it up. Be still. You're safe now. Go join the others aboard my ship. He bubbled it and then sent it off. I had to protect you Pearl. With that he collapsed. Too weak to move. The only reason his form was still there was sheer will power. He wanted to stay there for Pearl. He wanted to make amends.
(Omg I just wanted you to be able to speak but okay lol)
"Howlite?!" At first Light was schocked. Howlite was trying to save him from a little mole that wasn't really that dangerous. Light would probably easly dodge the hir or at least survive it. However Howlite decided to risk his life. Than Pearl was thinking about this... was he really trying to do ANYTHING so Light would like him
"That was the most insane thing I have ever seen, what do you think you are doing?! Ughhh just leave it to me like you ususally do."
He summoned Holo#2 again so it would help him. Light wasn't going to hold him, Howlite tried to kill him arleady. There was still an option that all of this was just a Howlite's way to trick Pearl. "Holo#2 you know what to do." Hologram simply noded and started doing the job.
Act IV. (Light, Howlite and Bloodstone) [Post order will be Light, Howlite and Bloodstone] Back to (the) Light
In the dark depths of earth, there was only a little light A little, fragile Pearl, alone with his holo copies and a cracked Howlite, who drifted in and out of consciousness Pearl wasn't a Healer, but even he could saw, the Gem who once was his friend was not well His gemstone was full off cracks, it was a miracle, it was still whole and not shattered to many shards; the projected hard light body of the Broken Gem flickered, like a struggling candle light in a storm, only protected by the shaking hand of a Pearl Somewhere above us, a corrupt Monster howled, it's voce was like a giant whale's, starting slowly, deep, but then filled the darkness It was close It was hungry Finally, the stones under them surendered to the Beast's consuming presence, and the Earth Mother opened its jaws again, swallowing the duo; the holo Pearls dissapered Light hugged, protected Howlite without realizing it.. .and the the black emptiness sourended them A little ball of light, - The Pearl and the barley alive Howlite - slowly falling to the void It felt like an eternity... but in reality it was just a few seconds
Then they splashed in to a subterranean lake Ice cold water embraced them... and after a time, the instincts kicked in, and the Gems crawled/washed up on to the bank At the back of the enormous cave, there was the strange Gem device, among broken crystals, half burried in a pile if stones and bones... and gem shards; it must have been a previous cave-in that dragged those poor, unfortunate souls and the device down to there...
And somewhere above them, in a a little cave, Bloodstone Gem filled the dark little hole with crimson and green light, and the Berserker slowly reformed
"You heard something?" Light heard some weird noises "It sounds like a while that looks for his love! Oh... so cute!" Pearl realized something "What to the Mother of Pearls is whale doing in a cave?!"
Suddenly a ground under them opened and they started falling. Light was so nervous that he wasn't sure if they were still in a cave or in a yummy of a whale. While he was falling he hugged Howlite and started yelling to his face "UGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!" He also had closed eyes.
They fall to some kind of lake. Pearl also saw that they are not inside a whale. These creatures usually don't have yummies made out of rocks and bats. Light opened his eyes, he calmed down. He looked at Howlite. After few seconds he made wide open eyes and started screaming louder than before "UGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!" He run away from him and talked to him with a disgusted voice "I can't believe it happened... You saw nothing! Don't tell anyone!"
Light saw something, it was Howlites device "It is it!" Than he saw Bloody's gem "IT IS BLOODY!!! She is not dead!" He run to the friend's gem. It started refoeming. He was waiting for her with excited work "Yes yes yes!!!"
When the Ground opened up, Howlite lost consciousness. Howlite slowly regained consciousness and opened his eyes. Pearl was excited. Howlite's hearing was in and out so he heard, "It.... Bloody... Dead... Yes!" Obviously he missed some words in between. Did we.... Did we find it? He slowly lifted his head to see it. It looked like a small rod. Attached to to it was an empty space for gems and a blinking white light. It works but it's fading. Go retrieve it Pearl. I need to rewire it to get a stronger signal. Then we can go. And Pearl? I should tell you... I'm probably not gonna make it. i'm too badly damaged. You can't heal and the only healers I know who still like me is Slugger and Lady Quartz. They're too far away. One more hit like before and I'd shatter. If I die.... I want you to know that I truly am sorry. And after all that's happened I still think of you as my brother. I don't expect you to ever forgive me... just know I'm repentant. He sighed. I used to wonder where I'd end up. Paradise or Punishment? After all I've done.... the answer seems pretty clear.
Getting poofed is...never fun. Bloodstone was still a little bit sore after getting sent back into their gem which is a bit rare for the berserker.
"Oof...that hurt like crazy."
Octi thought to herself, unable to tell just where her gemstone may have landed..just that it was awhile before it felt like anyone was close. This gave the Bloodstone time to sit and think and..well also nurse the pain from having a ton of rocks brought down on your head. Eventually, though, she felt the need to come back from her rest. There was..lots of light and...well when she was back, she was standing right next to Light and...there was a gem she didn't recognize.
"Light..? W-where did I land, exactly?"
Bloodstone looked down at Light, smiling a tiny bit
"Okqy good luck!" Light was more excited in seeing that Bloodsy is alive than seeing that they can escape. However Howlite was acfing strange... not like him "We switched our bodies or what? I am usually the one who is overreacting? We have got Bloodstone, she is a quartz. Nothing bad will happen to us... and I still have got no idea why you let this monster mole attack you."
Bloodstone reformed. Light jumped on her, he was so happy "I have got no idea! It is Underground full of deadly moles or something! I thought you are dead! What happened to you!"
Pearl looked at the gem behind them. Light wasn't sure how to explain Bloodstone who he is. "Ohhh.... and this is a gem that needs help. We will transport him to Morion, he should be able to heal him. He hlped me find a device that will help us get out of here. I will explain who he exactly is when we will finish our mission."
Howlite tried to chuckle at the joke but his form kept failing. He finally regained focus. Why did I do it? For you. Pearl... you're probably one of the best gems I've ever met. I still think of you as my brother even if you don't feel the same. We're actually more alike than different. We're both rejected by gem society. We're both war criminals. We're both ex rebels. I think we represent what could've been for each other. I represent the dark path you could've taken. While you represent the light path I should've taken. I'm such a clod for hurting you. I'm sorry. Just go get the device and I'll get to work. Then he saw Bloodstone. He slowly crawled-as his legs weren't working- in front of Pearl. His tired body was in a slightly defensive position. Don't... hurt.... him. In-between words his form would fail then refocus.
Light had no idea what to say... He never was in such a situation. Howlite acted so... lovely. But Light arleady gave his heart (that he doesn't have) to someone else. He blushed a little "You really talk a lot as a person that is near dead...Just try to don't kill yourself."
"What? Why would she hurt me?" It really confused him. Howlite litteraly saw Light crying because he thought Bllody died.
"Rose's fountain is too far away and Morion usually has got what might help. I really don't see what else could we do." Pearl summoned 2 holo pearls again. They grabed Howlite and moved him to the machine "Holograms also don't mind... and we might need your big strenght."
"Why...hurt?" was all he could hear. Then the other gem spoke. "I...no...Light...how....Morion...Carry you?" The room began to spin his head. He started seeing double. Just put me near the device and I can get to work. Be quick 'cause I can't hold this much longer. His form flickered and he vomited liquid light. He turned to Pearl. Sorry. I can fix this. I can get us out. When I do... I am taking my ship back. Morion has no idea how powerful and unique she is. I built her myself. She has no equal. His form flickered again. Pearl... in case I don't make it, take this. He handed him Mocha's gem. Protect her. Keep her safe. If I die.. tell her I loved her.
WHAT?!" He didn't expect that The ge won't be able to fix the machine "We may DIE here! Who cares about your ship!?"
Howlite wanted to give Light Mocha's gem. At least that is what Pearl thought because he was looking at the war behind them "Hmmm I am here." He grabed the gem "I never though I will see you again..." He turned to Howlite "She will be safe. You won't belive how many times she get out from trouble without a scratch..."
Light turned to Bloodstone "I actually don't know... but I am afraid there is nothing else we can do. We need to dig a tunnel." Holo Pearls placed the Howlite near the war. Light summoned 2 more and all of them started digging a tunnel. Light joined them.
Howlite crawled to the machine. He inspected it carefully. Outside was undamaged luckily. He opened it up to check the inside. He rewired the systems and frowned. The battery was dead. Well guys... I have... good news... and bad news. Good news.... it works. Bad news... it needs power. Between words his form flickered. He then had an idea. One of us has to be the battery. He turned to Pearl. Your friend just poofed so it's too dangerous for her. Mocha isn't strong enough so she's out. That leaves one gem. He drew his rifle and pointed it at Pearl. He pulled the trigger. The bullet stopped inches from Pearl's face. Then it turned around and hit Howlite. His form began to glow. Should've seen your face. His form exploded and his gem hit the ground. If Pearl plugged him in, they'd be free.
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
