Jazz has made her way to a mountain with a tall spire reaching up to the sky at its top, after looking for a long time for a home to hide in. She did not care about the spire but she did think the mountain would be a good place to hide from the Homeworld gems, at least for a time.
Jazz wanders around the mountain for while and settles down in a shallow cave and sits inside. She looks around and looks content with her new temporary home. She starts thinking to herself about the rebels against Homeworld and how she might approach them. She has been avoiding it so far because she was afraid of their reaction. Maybe she can get up the courage to approach them soon. For now, she is going to get comfortable in her shallow cave.
Bloodstone had decided to revisit the Sky Spire and try her luck at getting some meditation in again hopefully not running into any giant monsters again like the last time.
"Let's see...where to try things out this time..."
Octi hummed to herself before coming across the shallow cave, unaware of Jazz's presence inside
"Oooh...this could be a good site. Has plenty of nice calming feelings to it for sure."
Bloodstone walked inside, if Jazz could see her, it would have appeared that she was a gem that would be ready for a fight at any moment yet at the same time could be one of the nicest gems in general that one could meet...a decent combination of nice and destructive
Jazz notices the other gem enter her cave. She gets on edge, considering she is trying to hide from Home World. Jazz listens to what the gem was saying and decides to take a moment to talk before she summons her weapon.
"What kind of Gem are you? Home World or Rebel?"
Bloodstone can hear that Jazz has a bit of fear in her voice when she asks the question. When he notices her, he sees a soldier gem with a muscular build but if he looks longer he can see that she is not carrying herself threateningly. She looks more like a cornered animal fearing for her safety than a warrior at present. She is ready for a fight if it comes to it but she looks like she will not attack first.

Jazz takes a breath after hearing what Bloodstone has to say. She feels she should still be cautious, because she at least knows what to expect from rebels and Homeworlds. However she decides she will give Bloodstone a chance. Jazz moves a little closer so that she can be seen a bit better and then sits across from Bloodstone.
"I am Jasper, but I prefer Jazz. You can figure out a nickname if you want... So what brings you up here? Needed time away from it all? Wanted to train in peace and quiet?"
Jazz still seems edgy but she is less fearful than before. She starts to think about how she should handle Bloodstone, how much to reveal and how much to conceal. She will figure it out as the conversation unfolds.
Bloodstone smiled softly, feeling somewhat relieved when Jazz sat across from her
"I'll just call you Jazz for the moment. As for me being here...I feel like I wanted to get some time to train. This place is one of the better locations in general and...well last time let's just say I was interrupted."
Octi could still remember going in berserker mode and punching a giant gem monster fish...still an odd incident in general whenever they looked back at it
"What about you? What brings a gem like yourself to the Sky spire? Need an escape in the literal sense or the metaphorical sense? And..well is there anything I can do or say that would help you out?"

Jazz nods, she understood that training can be a lot of fun. The more quiet the place the better in her mind. She thinks about how to phrase her situation without revealing everything at once.This gem might be neutral but that does not mean they need to know everything about her at a first meeting.
"Well I am obviously a former Quartz soldier. I am on the run from Homeworld because I decided to abandon my post when Rose Quartz sent her message out. I have been on the move for a while now, trying to make sure Homeworld does not find me. I decided to hide here because it seemed like there were not many people here, human or gem, to find me." She laughs to herself a bit. "Apparently not empty enough since you found me."
Bloodstone nodded and smiled, in understanding of wanting to run away from Homeworld...they've had the temptation themselves every so often
"No worries..this place isn't exactly known to a ton of gems so I'd be surprised if any Homeworld ones found us here. To be honest I didn't realize this cave was here myself until I found it"
Octi sighed as she sat down on the ground, looking up at Jazz
"So, you mentioned you abandoned your post, where were you stationed exactly on Earth? I had signed up to be one of the gems to go to this place as part of the colonization program in the first place...went on my own when I thought Homeworld didn't want to communicate anymore.."
Jazz smiles a little, finding someone who had something in common was new to her, at least the escapism was new. She thought about how she came from an Earth Kindergarden and how she was treated back then. She looks upset while she thinks on it but the thought passes as she speaks.
"I was made right here on Earth, from one of the Kindergardens that the Diamonds established here. I was taken into Pink Diamond's army here and lived as..." She thinks for a moment on how to phrase it. "As a soldier. Told what to do and how to think... Then I saw the transmission that the Rose Quartz sent to all of the Gems she could. It resonated with me and moved me to run away. So now here I am, hiding from Homeworld on a planet that they value so much because I have few places I could go without being shattered... And because I want to fight back, make a home for myself without Homeworld breathing down my neck."
Jazz seems to have a mixture of anger and sadness emanate from her as she speaks, but she is also holding back some of the emotion.
Bloodstone nodded, understanding how Jazz felt just...not being made on Earth
"I see..well...do you need a place to stay permanently? I think I know somewhere where at the very least Homeworld wouldn't be breathing down your neck, it's close to where I live actually."
Octi smirked and sighed a little bit before continuing
"You were lucky, getting to be with Pink Diamond. I was stuck with Yellow Diamond and..well it wasn't exactly always good. That's why I signed up to be one of the gems to colonize Earth, gave me a chance to get away from all of it y'know? Course I...wasn't expecting the lack of communication and...then the message from Rose Quartz came through. After that it's just been a crazy up and down journey"

Jazz thinks about Bloodstone's offer, trying to weigh her options before she jumps onto a deal that she does not know very much about. She could understand what Bloodstone meant by her luck of being placed with Pink Diamond, as opposed to the other three. She has a few things in common with Bloodstone, perhaps enough to hear about her offer. Although Jazz likes her little cave she has... but then again she is curious what place on Earth Bloodstone could be meaning.
"Where do you usually stay? And where would you suggest I go? I have not been caught thus far because I am careful about where I hide, and from my experience Homeworld likes to pop up out of no where a lot. So I am curious where you think they would be off of my back for a while?"
Bloodstone nods and sighs, admittedly not sure now how well their place would be good for hiding
"I live in a shack near Beach City, have you been there? It's where most of the Crystal Gems that I know live and protect the humans."
Octi smiled as she sat back up
"Plus if nothing else there's a temple over there that you could stay in. I know one of the gems who lives near the area and I'm sure I'd be able to work something out. The shack is just a place I've used on my own for...who knows how long, I sure don't. It's just the one place I call home whenever I have no where else to go"

Jazz thinks about Bloodstone's offer. She considers that she wants to help the rebels against Homeworld, maybe she could join the Crystal Gems... That is a thought.
"I knew there was a town somewhere close to a coast where the local warps could take me. I have never been there myself, I have been avoiding humans as well as most other gems. I think I want to meet the... Crystal Gems you called them? I would appreciate if you showed me around and maybe introduced me to your friend."
Jazz smiles a little back as she thinks to herself about how she might be able to help people a bit more directly if she gets into helping the Crystal Gems at some point.
"Sounds like a good plan to me then. I can take you there as soon as possible."
Bloodstone smiled happily before standing back up
"Erm...while I'm thinking about it, if I may ask, you got any special abilities or anything like that? I'm somewhat of a trainer if I may admit. I have a miniature training center next to my shack."
Octi had trained a few gems before and who knows, Jazz could make a very good trainee if the circumstance presented itself
"Regardless, I think that Beach City could be kind to you. My friend's one of the more respected Crystal Gems, that's just the name they've taken up, and I think that you could have a nice existence there!"
Jazz nods, then she decides to stand up and start to follow Bloodstone to where she will lead. She thinks she should at least give Beach City a look and try to meet the Crystal Gems as soon as she can.
"Sounds like a plan, I will follow your lead for going to Beach City."
She thinks about her natural talents and decides to tell Bloodstone about them.
"I seem to be more durable than other gems to things that would normally poof you. And I use my weapon in various forms to change my Spin Dash for any situation I have to deal with. I use three different weapon forms." Jazz summons her helmet, then her gauntlet, and then her boot. After letting Bloodstone see them clearly she dismisses her weapon. "So that is about it with my special talents. So I am ready to head to Beach City whenever you want to lead."
Jazz smiles a bit as she gets ready to follow Bloodstone.

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
