Pearl rose from the sudden shock, shaken by the quick series of events that took place prior to the monster's demise. She looked around and then turned her eyes to Meta, furrowing her brow.
"We didn't have to destroy it like that... We could have bubbled it. Or... or something."
Suddenly, Pearl took moment to pause, realizing that Meta only wanted to help her cause and didn't mean to annoy and/or upset her.
"I... Thank you, I guess..."
She said, lowering her voice and shifting the tone from angry to confused before settling on a humble one.
"Now we have to find Jasper... If that thing wasn't alone, she might be in danger."
Pearl added, summoning her weapon again. The position and way in she was talking changed drastically from scared, frail and submissive to a rather determined tone, something very unlike any ordinary Pearl. True, she might still be frail and weak inside... Well, on the outside too. But she is willing to put up a strong face for her companion... Just this once.
Meanwhile, Jasper was still trying to talk to the statue of Rose Quartz, though her monolog was suddenly interrupted by the huge explosion in the distance. She was curious to see it, so she ran back to the thick growth of roses, unsure if she is going the right direction.
Meta stared into the crater, eyes hard and unrepentant. Shards of the corrupted Gem's gemstone glittered here and there throughout the smoking aftermath of the explosion.
"Death was the kindest conclusion for a Gem like that. It had no future. No mind left. If I had let it, it would have savaged you, and then anyone else it could reach. If Rose were here, things might be different."
Meta looked bitter.
"But she isn't. And you're right. We need to scout the area for more of those things. I'll accompany you back to the fountain first, the insure there are none near that little Jasper of yours."
Meta turned her back on the shattered corrupted Gem, made a gesture, and sucked all the heat out of the area, snuffing the flames in the process and leaving only ash and smoke. With the fire put out, she took off back towards the fountain.

Topaz was still huddled on the ground still processing what just happened when Pearl stood up and started bickering at Meta. Her eyes were wide as she continued staring at where the other gem just was.
"How could you do that to a gem? What kind of monster are you? It had to have a mind left what would have happened to it? There must have been a way to help it! Who is this Rose?"
She got up shakily to her feet her hands huddled to her chest unsure to even get near this gem anymore. Meta was a monster in her eyes but she wanted to know if that Jasper was okay. She watched in amazement as the Pearl summoned her weapon and continued after her. "How do you do that?" She asked the Pearl not even addressing Meta anymore.
Jasper ran away from the fountain, unknowingly towards the direction of Meta, Pearl, and Topaz. She wasn't afraid anymore so much as she was shocked and longing to reunite with Pearl. She just hoped that they could be together again soon... This was all just a mistake, misunderstanding. After all, Jasper never meant to overreact like this. Still, like a child, Jasper acted in the moment, for she knows no other way yet.
Meanwhile, Pearl decided to walk alongside Meta, her eyes resting with a worried and tired look.
"How... How was she?"
Pearl said in an awfully shy manner. Hastening her movement in order to keep with Autunite's giant form.
She added, knowing that this might be a very touchy subject for someone like Meta, who she saw previously mourning the disappearance of the rebellious leader. Pearl herself knew nothing of Rose beyond Homeworld propaganda, but she knew very well that it was just smokes and mirrors... Homeworld lied to her before and it brought her nothing but a plain and simple struggle, there is no reason why the terrible things about Rose Quartz wouldn't be lies too.

Topaz followed slightly behind them her hands close to her chest in nervousness. She expected another one of those... Gems to come out. She tried to follow along with their conversion but she had no idea what they were talking about.
What is this about a Rose Quartz? Who was she? By the sound of both of them pretty important. Why didn't she know this Rose?
As she was in her thoughts she jumped lightly as Meta mentioned her pointing to her chest. "Me?" She squeaked.
She was about to respond but Meta kept talking so she stayed quiet. Of course everything deserved another chance? What is this gem thinking? Glancing to her gem she saw the piece missing and signed lightly.
If she gets another chance so does something else. Especially when she feels like she did something horrible in her past.
"Who is this Rose?" She mumbled after Meta was done, unsure if she should say something or not.
"Rose was truly something different... Wasn't she?"
Pearl said, turning from Meta to Topaz, her eyes resting heavy with the burdens of a former Homeworld gem. She knew, that despite being just a Pearl, she helped Homeworld before and she was partially responsible for ruining this planet, together with her Sapphire, Sapphire's Diamond and many, many other Homeworld Gems that she served.
"When I still served Homeworld, they told us terrible things about Rose. - That she was a shatterer, a monster... But now I see she was something, no... someONE entirely else."
She turned back to Meta, hoping that their discussion is helping Topaz learn about Rose Quartz from both points of view, as it was certain that neither was unbiased.
"And now that she is stuck on Homeworld... You, you took her place... Right? - If only I could somehow help you, I would. But Jasper mustn't know about this. Homeworld, War or everything el-"
Suddenly Pearl was interrupted by Jasper walking out of the bushes, it seems that she was listening for quite a while already, and she definitely didn't look as happy or naive as she would under normal circumstances. Her face was boiling in both rage and wallowing in the sorrow of misgiven trust in Pearl, who she believed would tell her everything.
"Pearl... Is this all true? - Do gems really... hurt each other because of all this?"
She said, displaying a childish voice that totally didn't match up with her furious expression and mixed emotions.

Meta sighed deeply, and looked back out to the wild forest of thorns and vegetation around them.
"Gems hurt oneanother for far less important reasons than that. I'll... Be back in a little while. I need to make sure there aren't more of those corrupted about."
Meta looked at Topaz.
"If I find any more, I promise, I won't shatter them."
With that, Meta took to the air, and flew past overhead, back out over the maze of thorns beyond.
((This is gonna basically eventually segway into the Sad Topaz thread within a couple more posts, I imagine? So all that rlly remains is for Jasper and Pearl to head somewhere else, Topaz to make it all the way back to the fountain, and Meta to scuffle with one more corrupted Gem."
Melody: as usual, just waiting for posts

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" is being treated like a virus due to lack of info about it on the show.
*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
