This creature was strange, and much bigger than Mica had ever encountered before. "Yikes!" he cried, seeing the two tentacles on their way to slap him. He de-materialized the cord of his rope dart and jumped towards one, stabbing the blade into its side and sliding down, cutting it open across its entire length as the second tentacle aimed at him slapped into the pillar. Once he got to the floor, the tentacle his descent had cut wide open dissipated into the same dust, but he didn't have time to rest, of the 16 remaining tentacles, another one was heading his way. He crumbled his dagger into a handful of silicate shards and began a flourish to make them float around him in a crystal wind. Right before impact of the third tentacle he jumped to the side and brought his arms down in a fluid motion, causing the small wisp of crystal shards to begin cutting through the monstrous limb.
The behemoth squelched in agony and retracted the wounded arm, but raised two more ready to slap Mica.
This gem isn't that bad at fighting. He said he was a scribe? Dark Spinel pushed off of the ledge with his legs, propelling him in the direction of the two tentacles raised at Mica. Dark's two daggers sliced both of the tentacles in half. They both disappeared into thin air along the rest of the severed tentacles. He then slid to a stop to next to Mica.
"Hey Mica" Dark quickly scanned the remaining tentacles. "I don't see any gemstone up here. I'm assuming our attacker is down below. Dark looked up as the eyeball had grown much taller in the short time they'd been talking. It glared down at them as several tentacles surged toward them. "Quickly, follow me." Dark ran towards a hole one of the tentacles had made before it was destroyed. Dark ran towards it. Thankfully it was wide enough for them to fit through. Dark jumped down into the hole and fell onto another platform. He saw the bottom half of the corrupted gem. It resembled a cuttlefish, however, it only had one giant eyeball in the center of it. And right above the eyeball rested a red gem which could be recognized as an andesine. The tentacles weren't connected to it's body however. Dark looked up at the ceiling where the tentacles had emerged from. And saw that they came from floating spheres of hardlight. The corrupted gem spat out another round ball. The ball then shapeshifted until it was a tentacle identical to the ones they were fighting before.
Mica skewed his face in concern. "Another one?" he muttered to himself, watching Dark speed towards the hole from the tentacle and trailing quickly behind. Once he had caught up with Dark, it took him a moment to take in the way this enemy was behaving. While gazing at the creature, he manifested a shield made of the crystalline shards and crushed it, leaving it in a pile at his feet. Soon after, the familiar rope dart was dangling from his hands right above the crystal flakes he had accumulated earlier, causing them to gently sway with the dart's soft swinging, like dregs of tea at the bottom of a cup.
"If you target the gem... I should be able to take care of any tentacles that get near you." he said, giving the rope dart a spin. The crystal shards darted after it as if caught in a sudden wind, and soon, Mica had a small jet stream of crystals forming next to him. "I'll try to keep everything around it clear!" he said, before jumping forward to swing the dart through the air around the perimiter where tentacles were beginning to form, now that the corruption was becoming aware that its prey wasn't on the floor above anymore.
From what he could reach, Mica was sending gusts of shrapnel flying through the air at the tentacles, occasionally inflicting enough damage to destroy one. The trail of shimmering minerals flew around the dart as if caught in its orbit.
Dark ran towards the beast as it spit out several smaller tentacles which it flung at him. He summoned another dagger and cut down at him and he jumped towards the beast's gem. Then one of the ceiling tentacles came down towards him and grabbed onto his torso. It then flung him at the wall where he was standing before. The monster spit out two more tentacles as Dark stood up. The tentacles flew towards Dark. Dark then jumped onto one of them and ran across it. Dark then jumped over the gem and let out a flashbang. Temporarily and deafening blinding the gem. The tentacles relaxed, not sure who and where to attack without an eye to guide them. Dark landed gripped his dagger tighter as he ran towards the corruption. Ready to stab deep into the monster's gemstone.

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

*Garnet,Pearl and Rose broke the space warps to delay Homeworld
