Deep within the mega city of Homeworld the Yellow Palanquin stood in a solitary room, the walls the blank canvas of white, giving the space the effect of being infinite. The only sound was the methodical and partially impatient reverberating tapping sound that came from within the Palanquin. A expression of slight irritation was on the face of the towering yellow figure whom was seated within.The palanquin seemed more empty then usual though, the Pearl surprisingly absent from the side of her owner.
In most cases a Diamond would not of ordered a private meeting with another gem, especially not the strict and somewhat temperamental Yellow Diamond, but within her routines she had noticed a new gem that had emerged from the Kindergarten, a specific gem ordered by her youngest Sister after a long discussion between the four of them weeks earlier. The plan was for the new gem to be sent straight to the Moonbase after processing, but Yellow had elected to add a slight detour to that plan, to have a small chat with the new Gem.Currently she was waiting in this private room,few gems knowing about the meeting,none knowing what it was about,but her ordering her own yellow pearl to escort the gem here indicating how high priority the matter was. A gem would not reject a meeting with a Diamond,especially not when a Diamond's own Pearl was sent as the messenger and the escort, at least not a gem who valued their own life.

Rose Quartz's steps were quiet and precise, maximized for the most ground per stride and least noise possible, as she crossed the barren white breadth of the room to where the Palenquin stood.
For once, she was glad of her abnormal height-- It made her all the more obvious, yes, but it made getting from place to place in a dignified manner without breaking some ordinance or social quota by running or jumping a whole lot easier.
The Quartz was 10' tall. Nearly as tall as any Quartz soldier had ever been. Certainly much larger than average.
As she came to the face of Yellow Diamond's Palenquin, she dipped her eyes respectfully, formed the salute of the Diamonds, twisting her arms together to form their sigil in the gap between, and murmured.
Yellow Diamond was not HER Diamond, and so it would have been silly to address her as such. But Rose Quartz knew well enough to still address the towering Yellow Gem with the same respect she would have afforded Pink Diamond. Rose held the salute and kept her eyes down until Yellow Diamond deigned to speak.

The tapping continued as the Quartz entered the room and saluted the Diamond. It seemed to slow after a moment,becoming less impatient and more methodical and forceful. The tap slowed to each second and on the third tap the Curtains parted fully exposing the Gem within the throne,her stature towering over even the abnormally large quartz, even in her seated position with her leg crossed.Initially her eyes were not on the gem but after a moment Her gaze snapped down at the Quartz. A unreadable but still intimidating expression on her face as if she was deciding what fate would befall on the gem in front of her. She seemed to lean forward slowly, and her legs uncrossing and her shoes planting on the ground. Causing a distinct sound that seemed to echo and linger in the empty space of the room. She paused again,seeming getting a better long at the gem below her now. Her mouth pursed but waiting a moment before speaking.
"State your Designation. Your Facet and Cut" Yellow Diamond ordered in her usual no-nonsense and formal tone. Still not breaking her eyes away from the gem below her.

To an untrained observer, Rose might have looked like the picture of calm, unflappable composure. Her posture was ramrod straight. Her Gem was freshly polished. She faced Yellow Diamond squarely, and her salute was crisp. Her hair gleamed and her expression was nearly inscrutable.
But to a more trained observer, signs of tension, anxiousness, and even the slightest tinge of fear might be faintly visible--
Rose's joints were as tense as if she'd just been electrocuted. Despite her physique, which, if not quite fat, was at the very least... Very voluptuous and well-padded, muscles and tendons stood out in her arms as if she were holding up a great weight. Her lips were pressed together a little too tightly. Her posture was just a little too stiff. The neutrality in her expression was just a little too artificial.
"Rose Quartz, your grace. Facet 3A1D, Cut 2EC"
Rose replied with careful steadyness, maintaining her salute.

Yellow Diamond let the silence linger once more before responding “Good”. Not being one to waste time frivolously Yellow Diamond only stopped for one more pause before starting “Firstly, this meeting never occurred, I was not here, you were not here, and to state otherwise would shift your existence from immortal to very mortal” Her eyes widened as she said 'very' indicating the threat in her expression.
“I’m sure you know of your purpose and the…stigma that surrounds your Cut and while you have likely heard the importance of playing your part I would hope that hearing it from myself would help emphasise the importance of it, and the consequence of failure.” She leant back in her chair, crossing her arms and glancing away.
“You are to be punctual, astute, and flawless, you will be the perfect Soldier, the Perfect Escort, the Perfect Guard, you are to follow orders down to the letter, you will follow the will of the Diamonds without hesitation or complaint, you will fight rebels without mercy, you will be the perfect model Quartz for your entire existence."
She snapped upwards, bring herself to full height in one directed and striking motion. Her gaze locking back down onto the Quartz.
“You!are! to!remind! gem kind that the defected quartz is nothing more than exactly that, a defect, a imperfection, a failing, a gem that is lesser then dirt for daring to defy us, a gem that should be forgotten like all the other useless Off Colours that emerge, you will do this through your actions by being the! absolute! perfect! Quartz! soldier under Pink Diamond, a antitheses of everything the rebels dare stand for, you are to be the living reminder to our empire that the Rebel Quartz is not to be seen as a leader, or a martyr or any sort of inspiration, but instead as a gem who’s mention should only bring about hatred and scorn by the mere concept that they defected before being quickly and deftly forgotten by gem kind in favour of your actions as the perfect Rose Quartz”
Rose Quartz nodded, feet shifting, lips tightening further as Yellow Diamond made it clear this was off-record.
"Understood, your grace."
She briefly saluted again for emphasis, heels clacking together.
As Yellow Diamond stood, looming as high as the Palanquin itself and consuming Rose Quartz in her shadow, Rose could not help but take a single, fearful step back. She was a massive Gem-- one of the largest size-brackets a Quartz or any other mass-produced Gem could be formed in without special care and equipment.
But next to Yellow Diamond, she might as well have been a Ruby. The Gem monarch towered over her more than two-fold-- Rose's face sat at the level of the Diamond's thighs. The very top of her hair came perhaps to the lower points of her hips.
And Rose had absolutely no doubts that Yellow Diamond could unmake her much more easily than she had been made in the first place.
"Completely, your grace."
She steeled herself, and the fear drained out of her bearing and expression. She stood straight and tall, every inch an image of perfect composure.
"I will not disappoint you. And I will not disappoint Pink Diamond."

"Good' She soothed with her controlled but powerful voice "You are also to remind everyone that the Defective Quartz is exactly that, a Defect, a Deviation, a undesirable change from the rightful order of things, a piece of rock that is less then worthless"
She tapped her foot on the ground, cause the floor underneath the Quartz to Rise, ascending upwards until the Pink Quartz with in line with Yellow Diamond's Charged, Piercing, Geometric Pupils. Up here there was nowhere to hide or cower, the gem was forced to bear the full force of Yellow Diamond's aura. It was with a tinge of Pride that Yellow Saw the Quartz's steely resolve, the complete lack of emotions or even fear, or at least uncanny ability to hide these away within her presence. It seemed her Sister had pulled a good one this time.
She inched closer though, her eyes only a few feet away from the gem now.Her voice low and quiet, yet somehow more threatening then ever. "And if we get so much as a hint that you are to follow in your Defects foot steps on that wretched planet" Her expression shifting to a controlled fury and the pure essence of danger. "You will Find that we can do things far worst then decimating your Gem"
With that she tapped her foot once more,letting the platform lower down. Her own mass shifting as she took a seat back in her own throne.
"Be brisk 2EC, your Diamond will not liked to be kept waiting" She ordered dismissively as she turned her head away from the gem, bring up one of her digital screens and making it quite clear she was done with this meeting.

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

*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
