Azurite was rather new to the rebellion, she had recently finished exploring beach city and meeting humans (who she thought were rather adorable, but still equal). Since she had explored most of the city and temple she decided to explore new territory on earth, one of which was the sea-spire that she had heard about from some fellow rebels.
She stepped onto the warp pad and used it's primary function, she travelled through the warp out and arrived at her destination with some surprise since she hadn't warped much if at all. Azurite walked around the sea spire, taking in the beautiful sights of the structure and the surrounding ocean. She could tell it was used for aristocrats and due to her home world training she felt a bit wrong for being there but shook off the feeling.
After wandering across the ocean for a long time looking for some land, Peridot found a weird place. Of course she was going to explore the building, but with caution. She started to climb the steps, until she noticed that there was another Gem, she couldn't tell which Gem was though, Peridot was far from them. With no metal nearby, Peridot felt powerless, so she didn't want to look like a threat for anyone.
Therefore she started to took off her headdress to cover up the Healing Spikes and got rid of the Limb Enhancers for a while, but not for good. When the time to introduce herself came, she could take a closer look, an Azurite. She didn't know what to expect, so she played it cool and just said Hi.
Azurite was looking around and generally taking in an aristocrats experience when she heard the voice behind her. She spun around to face the direction of the sudden noise to see the green gem, she hadn't seen too many gems due to her being a rather new gem but she could safely say it was a peridot.
She didn't feel too threatened because peridots weren't combat gems and azurites were so she was sure she could take her in a fight if it came to that but she was still startled due to the fact this peridot could be from home world on a scouting mission or something similar to that. "Oh, hello! Why are you here?" She had to stop herself from instinctively doing the diamond salute of seeing a superior gem, as soon as she asked the question she realised how suspicious she sounded, if this peridot was a rebel she could easily have thought that she was the home world gem.
Peridot wanted to know more about this place, then after she passed the threat test, Peridot needed to be one hundred per cent convinced that this Azurite was not a threat too. "That's none of your business" She said with a serious tone, to see how her temper would react to this sudden change of tone.
Ready for anything, Peridot kept climbing the steps and thought that this wasn't probably enough. "So... Why don't you make yourself useful and help me here, maybe you're not useless at my Log Ocean 62" she said hoping that Azurite didn't get it seriously neither as a joke at all. After everything, Peridot still tell her to not go where she left her Limb Enhancers, but she didn't tell about the Limb Enhancers of course.
She laughed awkwardly "Oh okay." She said thinking more and more the gem was from homeworld, but her lack of limb-enhancers still made azurite think she might be a rebel or at least a neautral gem. Still she hid her hands behind her back to hide the stars on her gloves giving her a nervous demeanour.
She was a bit more confused at what she said next. "Um what do you need help with?" She said not really knowing if she was serious or not. What did she mean her log ocean 62? Whatever she meant she didn't really like the peridots tone, she seemed to be stand-offish but decided to give her the benefit of the doubt and decided peridot was acting like this because she might have been just as nervous as her.
Peridot expectations were right. Azurite was indeed calm enough to handle in a conversation, Peridot could stop acting and get straight to the point. "Nothing, step one is done, apparently i don't look like a threat to you now..." she said while uncovering her spikes and putting back the headdress to its place. After showing the spikes, Peridot said she left her Limb Enhancers in the bottom of the spire.
"Now step two is done... Do you want to kill me now or something? Just to be sure" Peridot said waiting to see if was safe to trust her. Azurite not being a threat that can't be deal with, Peridot just kept exploring the Spire with caution, she didn't wanted to use her Spikes for nothing.
Azurite quickly and cautiously stepped away from her when she saw her put her limb enhancers on being especially intimidated by the spikes. She was silent from what the peridot had said, she might have been planning an attack trying to lead her into a false sense of secutiry. The thought of her being a rebel went because of the fact she had limb enhancers but more because she tried to hide them. As the peridot kept exploring she followed her but kept her distance.
"No! I would never shatter a gem... but what are you here to do? Are you here on a home world mission?" She shakily asked after pushing herself to do it. She was a bit confused by the step one and two, though it gave her evidence that she was most likely on a mission. She got ready to summon her weapon but didn't knowing it could make the peridot think she was getting prepared to attack when she was only getting prepared to be attacked.
Peridot now finally could proceed and tell her the truth, but wanted to avoid the question. "Last step..." Peridot gasped after saying that. "... Done" she said relieved that now she didn't have to worry about being interrupted or even worse, so she warned Azurite about the unstable construction before starting to walk faster.
"Keep up the pace if you don't want to-" Suddenly Peridot falls but she use the Spikes to come back. "... Well, that was quite embarrassing" she said holding the blushing. When she thought about how Azurite don't have any Homeworld traces, probably she was a rebel, but Peridot didn't care at all about that, so she just kept the thought to herself since it doesn't matter to Peridot.
Azurite laughed or rather giggled, "Are you alright? And you didn't answer my question... Are you from home world?" She asked nervously but at the same time curiously. She thought she would ask why she was here but didn't seeing as how peridot didn't answer the first time and the fact she seemed to be in her own thoughts.
"But you also said I should keep up the pace, then you fell and didn't get to finish your sentence what were you going to say?" She asked feeling as though she was asking a lot of questions, as she kind of was. She got a bit more relaxed but was still cautious seeing how nervous and secretive the other gem was being about why she was here, along with still being preoccupied with the confusion of the steps she was mentioning.
"Geez! Stop making so many questions, i'm almost going nuts here... As far as I remember, i'm not from Homeworld" She said out loud. Peridot is not used to be thinking about her past, therefore keeps forgetting some details, but at this moment all she wanted was finish her Log Ocean 62 which she had to explore this ocean building.
As soon as Azurite got all the information she needed, less often Peridot was going to be interrupted, then Peridot started to say everything she could remember while walking. "I was going to warn ya to keep up the pace if you don't want to fall" Then she talked about the "Steps", that it was only steps to keep away from getting into a fight, not because she didn't wanted to of course. "Look, i got this little brat that call herself PR on my neck. I thought that Gems couldn't have Problems when decently made... I was so wrong. I have this dual personality ... An alterego"
Peridot was starting to get mad at herself for taking so long just to talk about nothing that mattered that much.
She stepped back a bit, thinking the gem could be dangerously defective. "Oh... okay I'm sorry for asking you so many questions I just wanted to know if you would try to break me, I'm a rebel." She knew telling her alignment to a strange gem that could have been lying but it could gain her some trust. "I'm sorry about your neck personality problem." She said not knowing what to say in this situation, nervous she could come across off as rude. She had never met a gem like this before, in all fairness she hadn't met many gems before but this was definitely rare, maybe not a good type of rare but she didn't want to judge. This gem seemed confused and to be in her own world.
Peridot just wanted to finish this Log as fast as possible, so she just ignored Azurite until she makes another freaking useless question. "Okay, i already got our coordinates and... What's that now..." Peridot found an odd room, she couldn't tell what was the room's purpose at the moment, but when got a closer look on the surroundings, Peridot remembered something. "Is this an... Think Chamber? But i still don't get what's the point of this, i can think wherever i want, there's got to be some use here..."
After searching the whole room, she still couldn't tell the meaning of this, then she started to use her Spikes to scout around the room, making some holes, looking for something real useful. "That's it, i'm going to stop before the whole building fall apart"
"Hey so, what did you mean by your ocean log before? I didn't quite get the meaning of that when you said it, and what are you searching for that is so important? You look like you're on a mission for something important." She said starting to run out of patience with the seemingly rude gem.
She followed her around the spire wondering what she would do next, maybe she had to stop her from tearing the place down by the looks of all the holes she had made in the wall with her shoulder spikes. She became relaxed but annoyed at the lack of answers she was getting from the peridot. She hadn't answered any of her questions and she was starting to get a bit angry.
Even trying to ignore Azurite, Peridot knew that had to answer her to don't get disturbed anymore, so Peridot said that the Log Ocean 62 was no big deal, she needed to explore the whole planet. "My mission... Would be find out what happened in my past and figure out how to get rid of PR". Peridot takes a deep breath... "Look, if there's any question i didn't answered, just remind me okay?" Peridot said hoping that Azurite would be fine after Peridot almost destroy the building.
She was still afraid of what could happen if something powerful attacked her by surprise, the Healing Spikes are not that offensive. "I would really appreciate if you warn me in case of trouble, i don't want us to get shattered" She said with a serious tone.
"Whoa, Peridot what would be here that could cause trouble?" She asked wondering if they were in danger. "And I wanted to know what you needed help with." Azurite followed a bit closer to peridot now that she mentioned that they could be in danger. She was fairly impressed that the peridot put herself on a mission to explore the planet just to find a cure for her neck personality problem that may or may not even exist and to figure out her history.
"You must be very bothered by your neck..." She mumbled to herself while looking around the sea spire, still taking in the immense beauty but now the beauty changed to something dangerous, scary and intimidating. All the holes in the walls didn't help with the anxiety building up, she started to realise that the walls were a lot more sturdier and tougher than her gem, and peridot easily put a hole through them. She tried not to think about that and continue to just follow peridot.

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.
