A peaceful sun ray's flickering light along the area of which ships reside in, Blue had many fond yet still terrible memories of being here, this was where she damaged the dock area fighting the sapphire along with the bubble bee jasper however it seems as the wooden platform was repaired since then which was expected.
Blue sat at the edge of the docks gazing upon the light being reflected on to the ocean she smiled slightly letting out an immediate sigh as she has done alot with herself, create experiments, attempt to shatter pink diamond, meet the broken gems, be known for her sinister acts, she made a name for herself in this planet. Blue clenched her palms as she laid them on her lap contemplating on homeworld and how it was going without her, how exactly her Quartzes that she took care of and led into many wars were doing, who led them?.
As she was completely in thought fluttering winds blowed her hair slowly covering her eye for a moment as it did so.
Howlite was heading to the docks hoping for a good time. Oh he indeed found one because just at the base of the docks was Blu Quartz. He had an idea. He crouched down and approached her from behind without making a single sound. Once he got up to her he shouted
He laughed psychotically.
"Blu Quartz as I live and breathe. It's been ages! I've been missing my big sis. How've you been?"
He smiled warmly at her. Due to his past, he had a deep seeded hatred for Quartzes. But Blu was different. He was always happy to be around her. He liked that she wasn't like the others. She never hit him or poofed him just because he was defective. She never beat him to near shattering for asking questions. No. She was family and always would be family.
Blue had to honestly stop worrying about the past as she wouldn't get over her actions unless she did so, as she proceeded to stare at the ocean a sudden unexpected yet familiar voice was heard coming from behind her, it was Howlite yet she reacted too fast to find out who it was.
As she became startled she glowed her belly button gem summoning her shield in which then she would lean back and push her legs upwards aiming to the intruder face to hopefully knock him or her off there feet and on the ground.
However her attack missed a few inches and as she opened her eyes it was clear that she almost attacked Howlite, she'd then got herself up quickly dusting herself off embarrassed slightly, a dark blue blush emerged on her cheeks as she saw him," Oh! Howlite I'm sorry, you scared me there, I shouldn't be too on edge like that...I guess a Quartz will always be a Quartz..." she'd say calmly clenching her palm together to her chest like a general sapphire would.
Blue Quartz replied with a smile as he asked her a question," I've been well, working on a few theoretical experiments here and there from time to time but nothing much, Ive also have been training flurry in the ways of combat... well we are at the evasive stage currently but she has exceeded far past my hopes.." she'd say desummoning her weapon and sitting back on the edge of the docks. Blue would then tap the spot beside her in indication that she wanted him to sit down next to her and watch to seas.
"Scaring you was kinda the point. Thanks for not bashing my skull in."
"Training Flurry? Well ain't that a coincidence. She's been having me teach her marksmanship. She showed me the slingshot you gave her and I'm giving her lessons. She's a quick learner for sure. I fused with Varis, made things up with Boss, and even got a girlfriend now."
"I guess we've both been busy. I'm glad I found you here. I love spending time with my family and it's so hard these days. Especially now that the war has finally kicked off. I've been fighting loyals left and right. But now we can spend some time together. What would you like to do?"
Blue would then smile to hear that flurry has been training with howlite, she knew that a slingshot would be the best weapon for her based upon her personality along with logically ways with her possible handling in weaponry, a slingshot is simple and effective nonetheless.
Blue would then listen attentively as he spoken," Yes, the war has its cons however I still have been helping out all I can, making amends with the crystal gems, we'll need all the help we can get once homeworld finally tries to invade the planet with constant fleets of Quartzes.. I hope for this planet's safety at the very end..." she'd then say while then thinking of asking the question to Howlite about fusion as he has done with a different gem before so he should know the feeling.
Blue got up and paced back and forth on the board walk staring occasionally at Howlite finally coming to the conclusion to ask him. Blue would the turn her gaze at Howlite," I have an Idea I always wanted to try with you.. let's fuse and use our new form for a test drive throughout this world.. I fused with sulfur so it couldn't possibly get any odder than that.. hopefully.." she'd say while folding her arms.
"You're sure? Oh what the hell. Let's go for it! But I should warn you. When I fused with Dark I learned that fusion partners enter each other's minds. Once you enter mine you won't be the same. You'll see things that would drive an average gem insane. That's actually why I only fuse with the Broken Gems. We all are a little crazy and you guys are just crazy enough to not get ripped apart inside my head. Now on that happy note, let's begin!"
He extended a hand, expecting her to take it. From there he would twirl her around and dip her before coming back up. He'd give her another twirl and if successful they would fuse.
Blue took his hand gently in which as he twirled her, her dress flowed along corresponding with her elegant movement, as they then got close with one another her gem glowed along with her body, both there light internal bodies merged in which then they'd successfully fused, into something extraordinarily new.
Not one but three eyes opened wide to the realization of how huge they were, 25ft at that, her short shoulder length sky blue hair alined with her light blue skin, her dark blue eyes all widened by her appearance, she was absolutely beautiful. Suddenly the docks began to weaken by her weight breaking into pieces in a matter of seconds, Dumortierite Quartz pounced into air and descended on to shore smiling as they actually fused.
For the first time she spoken," Why such a place seems suitable for a gems like me, guess ill have a look around or somethin, maybe off this island as there nothing much to do when testing my abilities..." she'd say in a more firm tone. Dumortierite Quartz was a more straight forward gem, she told it like it is not holding back for no ones feelings, even though she still cared for beings and had respect for anyone she meets.
As she roamed the island for a bit rumbles could be heard on beach city, she then went towards the warp pad by the temple and did her best not to break it, shapeshifting into a smaller size of herself for a moment she'd then teleport to the beta kindergarten. Dumortierite Quartz chuckled a bit while turning back to her original height and using her lower arms to hold both her waist," Let's see.. where are some gems I can hunt down... I know corrupted ones are like mosquitoes around here... hmm.." she'd say monitoring the area still looking for some gems, corrupted gems specifically.
Dumortierite switched to Tracker Vision and spotted a nearby corruption.
"Well that was surprisingly easy."
She summoned a shield in her bottom left hand and a rifle in her top right. She rested the barrel on top of the shield like a phalanx stance only with a gun and not a spear. The corruption which resembled a giant scorpion, came charging at the fusion. She blocked the stinger with her shield and fired a bullet between the two front eyes of the beast. It didn't die but it shrieked in pain, causing it to open it's mandibles and reveal the gem that was inside.
"A rifle and a shield. Who would've thought how effective they are together?"
The weapons were certainly different but they bonded well. Much like her 2 halves.
As the giant scorpion shaped gem covered it's mouth with it's crab like claws she knew precisely that it's mouth surely has to be her final move in which endjng it's form for just a bit till Blue may hopefully heal it. Dumortierite Quartz would then walk towards the beast as it formed into a defensive stance with it's stinger leaning forward and it's body bent upon the upper abdomen area, it's crab claws snapped in warning towards them however she showed no resentment at all.
Dumortierite shot upwards aiming at a wobbly kindergarten gem drill leg, it then did as she hoped it would fell onto the corruption right on time, as it tried to squirm to try and get out of it's predicament she'd dashed upward commencing a back flip with a upper kick in the mix in which then she sent the scorpion gem flying in to the air and on it's backside. The Stinger however shot rapid black blast from it in which then she instantly moved her shield in time to defend herself, it was odd though, it was like she wasn't thinking of doing such a move yet her body just knew on its own to just protect.
Dumortierite then pointed her rifle at the beast's mouth. Just before she could pull the trigger, the scorpion fired another volley which was instantly blocked by the shield once again. It was so odd.
"How did I do that?"
She then fired a bullet at the scorpion's mouth. It put a small crack in the gem. The corruption staggered back and temporarily dissipated its form. Once it regained focus, Dumortierite was already in a defensive stance, ready for anything. She was so synchronized. It was crazy. She was perhaps Howlite's only stable fusion. Howlite's body and Blu's mind had perfectly melded together like clockwork. As she was in this thought, the scorpion fired a 3rd volley. This time however, Dumortierite parried with her shield and fired at the corruption's stinger in hopes to disable it.
As the fire shoot off it's tail, the giant scorpion shaped corruption amplified it's complete growl of pure agony as it staggers through the sandy tan rocky terrain. Dumortierite Quartz had to finish the job as she obviously knew that this beast was about to be finished, she'd then walked forward step by step towards the corruption in which then the corrupted scorpion tried to use it's crab claws to drag it's away from her.
Blue's eye narrowed as Dumortierite Quartz lifted her gun up aiming at the forehead of the gem pulling the trigger to attempt to successfully poof it's physical form, knowingly that there were more out there. As the bullet pierced there it's forhead suddenly a paused pose formed upon the scorpion corruption, as it's form subsided emitting a poof of smoke a red gem could be seen falling to the ground however Dumortierite Quartz instinctively moved her arm over to the gem to grab it.
As she bubbled the gem and sent it off to her base for later healing, a sigh came out of her mouth along with a brief gaze up at the vague blue sky," Such a fascinating planet, I'm looking forward to exploring more.. what secrets do this world holds.. heh probably nothing of my interest, however then again these corruptions were unexpected for me so I'll give this planet a thumbs up for that I guess.."
Dumortierite scanned for more corruptions to take down. Unfortunately that skirmish had scared them all off.
"Such a shame. I would've preferred to fight more. Oh well. There's probably still some stuff to explore around here."
She walked around with her hands behind her back as she examined an exit hole in the Kindergarten. Thanks to Blu and Howlite's extensive knowledge on gem types, she could easily identify them. She recognized it immediately.
"This whole belonged to a Spider web Jasper. Intriguing. It's a perfect hole. Not very common in a Beta Kindergarten such as this."
Where did the scorpion come from? It wasn't the Jasper. She looked down to spot tracks from a large animal.
"Oh this could be interesting. Perhaps I'll find something entertaining after all."
As Dumortierite Quartz followed the tracks of the large animal like foot print, she narrowed all three of her eyes keeping them peeled just in case anything came out to surprise her, and it did. From behind a crackled sound could be heard in which then Blue's eye ball widened, Dumortierite swiftly turned her body side kicking the giant spider structured corrupted gem into the walls of the beta kindergarten, another corruption came from the other side which was another giant scorpion corruption however this one was orange.
Logically one could think the spider shaped one could've came from the same whole they previously check however they'll still take them both down. The orange scorpion attempt to use it's long stinger to stab Dumortierite while the spider shot webs from it's mouth to try and encase her in webs to keep her from moving.
Dumortierite immediately rolled to the side as the scorpion tried to stab them, which dragged the spider along with her. She then summoned 4 shields, one for each arm. Then she began to push outward which tore open the web encasing. She then desummoned her shields.
"Let's try this again."
She jumped up and landed on the spiders back, causing it to collapse under her weight. It didn't poof just yet but it's legs gave out which was always helpful. She chuckled and then drew one shield and rifle. She once again took to her phalanx stance. Now she could easily defend against the two corruptions. When ever one attacked, she would block it with her shield while shooting the other one. She was like a clockwork mechanism.
Dumortierite chuckled a bit as she was having fun a bit," I wonder how exactly you bunch of deceased rocks even came to be, sounds deep if yah ask me, maybe there's something more to this corruption thing than I thought, from Dark it was just more of a mindless shell for him... hmm.." she'd then say while coming back to reality to focus again.
As she back flipped off the spider she'd then see that the orange scorpion came in for another tail attack in which then she'd side step out the way and use her lower two arms to grab it's tail swinging it around and around and around she'd pounce into the air and fling it into the ground causing it to burst into the spider.
Both corruptions bounced and fell alongside the sandy surface, they'd struggle to get themselves up as Dumortierite pointed the gun at them shooting first at the scorpion's tail and next at the spiders legs to attempt to shoot them off.
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.

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
