Bloodstones eyes widened in surprise when she saw everything that happened. Howlite's gem dropped to the ground and Blood picked it up, handing it to Light, not sure what to say
"Well..you heard what he said..I guess we should use him as the battery.."
Octi had never seen something like that before...a gem do anything like that so suddenly. Sacrifice or not, the entire incident was somewhat scarring.
:Do..you know how the machine works? I admittedly have never been good with technology before..not unless I've had time to work with it before at least. But I have no idea to work with that and Howlite presumably was the one who had the most knowledge and um...kinda isn't here."
Light was schocked. "I knew-" than Howlite poofed himself "-it?"
Pearl had to take a moment to think about it. He took the gem from Bloodstone "That was... something, I never expected him to do such a thing..." He than bubbled the gem "Noone ever did such a nice and crazy thing to me, I- I don't know what to say."
Holo#1 killed one of the corrupted gems that looked like a mole and placed the gemstone in the machine "I completed the mission Master Light!" Pearl looked at the hologram "Ohhh... great job holo#1 !"
Light looked at the bubbled gemstone again "You risked your life for me... again in the same day. However I am 100% sure sucking energy out of you would kill you."
Pearl approached to the machine "To be honest I have got no idea how this machine works." Light kicked the machine "It usually works in cartoons..."
"It actually could... It is sucking energy out of a gem and his gemstone is arleady really tired. Not to mention that harming the physical form also may hurt it."
Light looked at the machine "Well... I could change it to pieces to realized how does this junk works. And than recreate it. Now Howljte is in bubble so I don't think he is in danger. I think..." Light rubbed his chin "Wait... what if send a bubble? Were would it go? We could send Howlite and a letter so Morion id he is near you or I would send it to Lady Para. Though it will probably take more time. We would just nee a paper." Light looked at holo pearl "Or a hologram."
Light looked closely at the holo pearl and nodded few times. "I should be able to summon a hologram and reprogram it so it will be able to note what we say."
Bloodstone nodded and sighed, agreeing with the facts about the machine that Light was listing off
"That's..one way it could work. A bubble could easily be the quickest idea in this circumstance."
Octi smiled, she was impressed by the quick thinking that Light was showing. Perhaps the Pearl would prove better to the berserker than earlier on
"Sounds like a plan. I'll keep working my way through the wall and see how much progress I can make. You never know when you may need a Plan B. In the mean time, see what you can do about trying to get your hologram to send a message to Para or Morion. IT honestly may be the easiest method that we have in terms of keeping us all intact for an escape"
Light noded and summoned a hologram. It was a cube like hologram with wings. It transformed the body to the flat screen with wings. Pearl started to speak, his words were appearing on the screen.
"Dear Lady Para.
We had some problems... we foud a machine that was the source of this weird signal. However we are stuck in a cave. If that is not a problem I and Bloody would love to get some help... It is not like you need to do it! I don't want to bother you. However it would make our mission end much faster. Bloody is also panicking, not like me but still. We also found a gem that needs some healing tears. DON'T pop the bubble, he might be dangerous. I am pretty sure Morion should have exactly what he needs. That gem is Howlite. He is acting weird and say things that he changed or something. To be honest I am not sure about this, he used to say the same thing before long time ago. But I need to admit that he saved me and Bloody once. We will try to get out of here, Bloodstone is arleady working on that. However if you want help... Holo will lead to the place we are in. It won't help you in digging though. Do you have got a big digging machine or something? I am pretty sure humans have some in Beach City. But like I said before, we can take care of this. Oh anyway, I have been talking with human one day. Did you know that there is a creature called 'sea turtle'? It has got a big armor and it can still swim with it under water. These creatures make eggs! I thought only ducks and parrots can do that. I am not an expert but sea turtles are nothing like birds. They usually have wings or feathers... and can fly. I also heard from- wait, I think Bloody doesn't like the fact that I am making a letter while she is working. Take care! Light (/ '^')/"
Pearl bubbled the hologram and send it away. He also send away Howlite's gem. Both of the bubbles were now in the Forge near the door to Light's room. Para could easly spot them if she was there.
Light turned to Bloody "So... maybe you need some help?" He and holograms started to dig the tunnel. "Do you think they will find us?" Light said with a scared voice.
Bloodstone had been digging away at the tunnel as Light had written the letter and sent it off to Para, along with Howlite's gem bubbled up. She smiled a little and shook her head when Light asked, somewhat worried
"I doubt they would find us. Besides, I think me and the holograms here can get through easily. I've yet to test this out but..I think that if I used my berserker mode, I could dig through the ground faster and let us get back up to the surface faster than normal."
Octi shrugged after suggesting that, having no honest idea if it would help them dig or not. The berserker power had mainly been used in combat situations, it had never been tried out for more...conventional purposes. Maybe now was the good time for Bloodstone to see what they could really do
"If you say so... I will take this weird machine. It is a shame that Howlite didn't tell us how is it working and how will it help." There were a little bit to many people in one place and someone had to take it. Maybe Lady Para would find a purpose for it. Light came back for the machine, he really had no idea how could it help and why Howlite risked his life for it.
Pearl grabed and tried to walk with it. The machine was kinda heavy "Let's come back to the ship as fast as possible... this thing is heavier than the things Para wants me to move." He had problems with walking with it, even though he was using both hands. "Stupid trash can!"
suddenly Bloodstone said something about "berserker mode", he never heard of this power "Huh? What is a 'Berserker mode'? How is it going to help us?"
Bloodstone smiled a tiny bit when Light seemed to offer her the chance to explain her berserker power
"Well it's what makes me different from other Heliotropes. Essentially what it does is that it gives me a power boost of sorts and makes it to where damage does not affect as much in battle as it would for a normal gem."
Octi concentrated before she started going through the rock wall more rapidly, the strength in her attacks seeming to have picked up. IT would appear that the berserker mode did not take much to activate, just proper concentration or tapping into the right areas before going. As she kept going, Octi added as a bodyguard plus digging machine in order for her and Light to get out
"Ohh... so it like make you 20x stronger and better? Sound neat, it really doesn't hurt you or something? Sounds a little bit to great to be real." Liht was afraid that Bloodstone will hurt herself. What if this power would be too much for her gemstone.
Bloodstone started digging the tunnel "Woah! So maybe I will just let you do the job and move away." Pearl tried to follow his firned and be at least 4 steps away. He didn't want to be hit by a rock. "Are you okay? It is probably a really hard job. I would help... but my physical strenght isn't the greatest. I will try to thank you later. At least I can control the ship to help us get home easly."
Bloodstone smiled at Light after a few minutes of pounding through the tunnel
"Don't worry! I haven't been hurt by this power...well, ever really. It works just fine."
She hummed and went back to work for another few minutes, making sure not to hit Light with any stray debris that may be knocked loose
"I can handle it, but um...yeah controlling the ship honestly is the best thing you could do maybe. See, the thing is that this whole power tends to take a lot of energy out of me so I'm not as powerful for a little bit. I like to consider it a recharging period of sorts, like the electronics that I keep seeing humans use all the time"
"There can always be a first time." Light was a little bit worried about her. He didn't know why. This powers just wasn't natural. However Light was overreacting very often for no reason.
Hearing the effects after this just made him even more worried. It was just like he was charging a machine, nothing funny in that. "I hope you know what you are doing. My life would be probably much more boring without you. Just be carefull, okay? I don't want to come back to Lady Para with bad news. I am sure she is arleady worried because of my letter. She is always caring about everyone."
Ligt looked at the job Bloody did in such a short time "Woah, you really are fast, do you think we are near the surface? You need some rest."
Bloodstone sighed and nodded, feeling the effects soon wear off and leaning against the rock wall
"I suppose you're right...maybe I should rest at least for a few minutes. We're getting close anyway..I think i can afford to rest for a bit."
Octi smiled over at Light
"I appreciate all of the concern you've had Light...while I think I can handle myself..never hurts to have someone to make sure you're alright. That's what you are...thank you for that."
Bloodstone was resting the best they could, taking slow, deep breaths. The "recharging" period was never bad, they were just generally exhausted like someone who had run a marathon and might not have trained as much as they could have
"Just...give me a few minutes to recuperate, then we can be on our way"
"It is easy to spot on you that you are tired, take your time." Light placed the device on the ground and sit on the big rock that Bloodstone just smashed.
Light blushed a little "Ohhhh It is really not something that big, I just saw you look tired. I am pretty sure that everyone who is able to see would tell you this."
"Of course, of course. No rush. Now we don't need to be fast. Howlite is gone and we can't help him, Morion and Lady Para will do it.'" Light looked at the ground, he opened his hand. There was still Mocha's gem. It looked like run out of energy "I wonder what made him act like this... He always used to act so, so... creepy and not normal."
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
