Panicking for a slight second as Paddy evaluated her statements, she began to fidget in her seat. She didn't mean to address an Iolite incorrectly, and frankly, she was surprised that Spade was a fugitive... In fact, that may make her attempts at communications with Spade from this very base, nearly impossible.
Though, it sort of hit her as odd, that having a personal tie with someone she saved, would end up wronging her. What was she supposed to have done? Leave Iolite to die?
And how was she supposed to work with the fact spade was a fugitive?
"...O-of course not.. I didn't think, or know Spade was an actual fugitive... And I-I chose to interact with them, b-because let's face it, up until now, I would have been shattered had it not been for random gems in the area, it's just a coincidence they were Crystal gems, a-and fugitives..."
On a side note, She wasn't sure how trying to arrest a psychopathic gem would end, with him being so powerful.
"But I-I see what your saying.. A-and will address them as so..." She muttered.
She gave a nod. Anticipating words like these from the other sapphire were part of the reason Padpara had sent her pearl from the room, because she knew herself how that could be-- but they were also dangerous things to admit. She wouldn't do so herself, on the off chance that Pink would be denied her reentry, and instead interrogated. "It's unfortunate that they've chosen the path they did," She said slowly, then unclasped her hands, spreading them across the desk, "which is why we must be careful. Managers must be careful too, the safety of every gem on base rests in their hands. Any kind of sympathy for or association with fugitives will be scrutinized heavily."
She straightened out her back, and pulled up a specific file. It was the one that had Spade's face on it, the report that she'd written soon after she'd been witness to the young sylvine's defection. She pushed it in front of Pink, then looked up to continue speaking. "Many rescue missions, like the one I went on to save this Spade, go awry very quickly. She was a very sweet young gem, who turned in a blink because the situation suited her, because she had sympathies and connections to the leaders of the Broken Gems. Can you be trusted not to do that? If I were a manager, my job would be to directly antagonize the idea that you could be trusted at all. Not that I wouldn't want it of you." The sapphire wasn't a board manager, but these were still her feelings on the subject. She had her trust broken on many levels in the past, and she sorely hoped that another smear wouldn't be left on her record because of her sympathy for this young Pink Sapphire.

This information that Pink had been presented with, was distressing to say the least. From what she recalled about Spade, she couldn't imagine her being a broken gem, under Howlite. But, Spade had mentioned something of the nature, and even caused her to break down due to it, even if unintentional.
Agreeing with Padparascha as Pink continued to read the report made by Paddy's accounts of Spade, worry started to eat at her, as to when Spade-... The Sylvine, would be arrested for such betrayal, and if the result would lead to it's shattering, in which, she wasn't sure how she'd feel about that, being done to someone she... Noted with high regard.
Though as she listened, she was questioned too, if she could be trusted not to do the same.
...The question certainly shocked her, as she looked up from the report to Paddy.
Pink, a Defective traitor? What nonsense. She had no reason to betray the diamonds, despite a certain attempt to get her swinging for the other side.
In-fact, what about these few previous moments...?
"...According to the last few... H-hours...?" Spoke Pink, slightly unsure of the time, which was quite ironic to say the least. "...I've gotten on a ship, h-heading to the heart of Pink Diamond's base on the moon, with no possible chance of escaping, even when I had many chances to do so... If that doesn't speak for itself, then in basic terms, y-yes, I can be trusted not to turn rogue should the situation suit me s-so."
...She may have gone a little overboard on that...
But, if the managers couldn't see how easily she could of turned on Paddy, and how she would barely be able to do any actual damage- Though, maybe a little bit -to the base if she had fowl intentions, they must be too suspicious and antagonistic for their own good.
The sapphire watched the other's face carefully as she looked over the report. Spade was definitely a target Padpara wanted to get her hands on-- the gem had directly disrespected the Diamonds, and herself, in front of a dangerous renegade, before making the highly erroneous claim that Sulfur was a better leader than the Diamonds. Utterly nonsensical spoutings such as this lead Padpara to believe the gem was defective. Perhaps now that she knew that Pink Sapphire had leads on this gem, she could prove to be a valuable asset in the capture of this timid sylvine, and finally bring an end to that cold-case.
At Pink's words, Padparadscha cracked a smirk. "Good," She said simply, then she retracted the warrant report. "Perhaps in time you can prove it even further. The more work you do for the empire, less our overseers will have reason to scrutinize you," There was the possibility that Pink could be a spy of some kind, but Padpara decided that her truth senses would have told her something to that affect. The two were somewhat well acquainted at this point, but she would continue to keep an eye on Pink. The liability for any traitorous actions performed by Pink would ultimately be on Padparadscha's hands, after all.
With a gesture, she brought attention back to the partly-filled form in front of Pink Sapphire. "Being a sapphire, you have a great amount of freedom. Or you will, once you've gone through your initiation. Aside from direct orders from your Diamond, you'll typically be working of your own accord, with servants to help in your endeavors. You're prompted to choose whether you wish to be gifted with a full time retinue-- typically, rubies and a pearl. I choose my pearl, but I work well without a full time security detail. I hire a special task force, if needed," She cleared her throat, "--though my job is probably quite different from what Pink Diamond will assign you, given your abilities. We shall see, wont we?"
Thinking for a moment, Pink actually wondered where she would be assigned to. She had the ability to see the past, so a possibility in a investigative or judicial branch may be possible for her, since she could go to "the scene of the crime" and learn exact details, if her vision worked, mind you.
"I'd probably just ask for a pearl, to make sure I don't stray too far into a danger, since even if I did, I could probably summon several of those constructs..." She laughed awkwardly, her reference being to the many situations she had been in. "As for my assigned job though..." Pink muttered, continuing on her previous thought. "My ability is to see into the past, I'm not so sure but if there's say a investigative branch, or even the judicial branch, my ability might help in investigations, regarding crime scenes, or information lost to time..." Explained Pink, attempting to figure out where she'd be placed.
"But, as you said, we'll see." She finished, reading the rest of the forum as she prepared to fill the rest out.
Her brows floated up in pleasant surprise-- it hadn't been long ago at all that she'd witnessed for herself Pink's innate protective shield; it was effective enough to perhaps replace a security detail. Alongside that was the revelation that the two of them could be working in more close quarters after all, though it would be ultimately up to their shared Diamond. Pink Sapphire was no doubt created with a purpose in mind, but that purpose had been derailed for a short time. Padparadscha couldn't help but to feel a bit proud at the idea that Pink was finally able to seek her way back onto the right track-- and that she may be joining in the work of the law courts.
"Indeed," She began, then shifted in her seat, her hands fell into her lap,"--and the prospect is interesting. The majority of gems are given their purpose upon inception, but some cases are special. Sometimes things change, purpose is redefined. Though I can't claim to know what Pink Diamond had intended your original purpose to be." She had to stop herself before she went on and on about her own rambling thoughts concerning purpose. It was easy to suppose that Pink would find out her own way of regarding the subject in time, and aside, there were other matters to attend to while she was still here. There wasn't much left on the form to fill, just little particular details, times and dates. It seemed this was a good moment for her to bring her thoughts into words, to test Pink's interest in the field Padparadscha had been so embroiled in for the past few centuries.
"I know it's difficult to speak on, but the case with 9XR I mentioned-- I'll no doubt have him detained and put on trial soon enough. Your abilities are quite apt for information gathering, this could be an opportune moment to show Pink Diamond your worth to her majesty in the judicial courts. If you wouldn't be adverse to sharing your testimony in the upcoming trial, that is,"

getting caught on the thought of what she was actually intended to be, she wondered if maybe she'd be considered defective, for powers opposite of a normal sapphire. As she mentioned earlier, she could recover lost information, However there were drawbacks to that. She would have to be in that exact location of the place where the crime occurred, and sometimes, it may be quite impossible to do so due to unstable structures, etc.
So many negatives and positives, maybe they'd balance themselves out.
The thoughts fluttered away quickly as Paddy seemed to ask something of her, something she'd preferably not do..."O-oh, sure, I suppose. Just come get me when the trial requires my testimony, or, would I need to attend directly?" Asked Pink. She was unsure how a judicial court would function, apposed to a normal court.
And how she would have to appear, etc.
"How should I word my testimony..?" Pink asked, concerned, while trying to finish the form.
The sapphire gave a quick peek to what Pink wrote on the form, making sure it was still up to standard, before regarding her questions with a terse nod. "You would have to appear in the court. Pink Diamond, myself, 9XR, another witness, as well as the zircons will be there to present the case. You need not worry about 9XR himself-- he'll be thoroughly detained, and surrounded by powerful gems who would be able to shatter him the instant he even thought about making a move." She gave a smug smirk, imagining how satisfying it would be to see 9XR's power games turned around on him once he was brought into Homeworld's realm. Padpara also hoped that her own confidence would invoke some in Pink.
Confidence was key in many (if not all) situations, especially in the courtroom. She supposed that Pink seemed timid because of her inexperience, but over time, it was easy to imagine that this trait would not turn out to be a central part of the burgeoning pink-court aristocrat's personality. Especially if she were to work in the judicial courts. But, for the time being, there was still some confidence to be inspired in her. "Simply tell the truth, keeping in mind that you shouldn't say anything that you wouldn't say to a Diamond, given that her luminosity Pink Diamond will be sitting in judgement of our...guest. Keeping in mind as well, the detachment I have mentioned," Her smirk wilted as her expression became more serious,"Your testimony could end up being central to the case. Perhaps you, Pink Zircon, and I will have a meeting before the trial, and from there we will suss out the particulars-- should you accept the responsibility, that is,"

...While Paddy's claims regarding whom would be attending would normally be satisfactory, Pink, having been in the very scenario regarding Holi-9XR and a Iolite, she had a feeling that it wouldn't be enough to keep him from killing everyone in the room, if his mentality broke.
But, she had yet to see any proof of 9XR handling several gems at once, singing some insanity of a song.
"If you say so..." She muttered. She had a small hope that the group of powerful gems would be able to hold the savage of a gem that was 9XR, but there was still doubt regarding it. Though, she should probably get over herself already, as if a gem could kill a whole group of soldiers.
That must be madness.
listening on to paddy explaining what to say, she wished that Paddy had just given her a word-to-word play, but, it was probably best to do as she said, 'Simply tell the truth' and pull in the 'Detachment' of any of the gems involved. Plus, if this testimony of hers is vital for getting rid of 9XR once and for all, she was all for it.
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"'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
