Peridot started to feel dizzy. "Oh... that..." She didn't look so great "I just... Wanted you to help me with the Steps, you... Helped already" Starting to sweat at this point, she couldn't stand for much longer. "what would be here that could cause trouble?", this echoed over and over on Peridot's head, she laid slowly on the middle of the stairs. "I... Need a break"
After a few seconds, Peridot thought about being shattered, thought that this would be the only way out, but of course didn't tell Azurite, didn't wanted to get her involved. "Hey there, keep going okay, i just need to... Only have to... " Peridot end up fainting, she fell off the building landing into the water.
"She doesn't look too good..." She started to think seeing her sweat and lay down. Maybe it was something she said? She had no idea but knew something was wrong. It felt as though the moment was happening in slow motion as she watched the green gem fall off the edge of the structure. She quickly went to grab her to keep her from falling but didn't manage to catch her in time.
Azurite heard and saw the medium sized splash and she panicked for a second pacing around in circles frantically as she tried to figure out what to do. "H-hold on!" She shouted down to her as she dove in after her, fearing that she might have hit a rock below and cracked her gem. She hit the water and felt it move around her as she dove deeper trying to spot the gem in the deep blue water.
After falling into the water, Peridot caught herself crying for no apparent reason, but thought that there's was no one to hear. "I don't wanna fade again, i'm me!" Looked like that Peridot was just losing it, but then she fell right into a pointy rock while trying to climb up, cracking her Gem a little. Peridot felt like a burden at this time, so she just gave up, for her was pointless trying to fight back.
When Azurite arrived, Peridot slowly and carefully grabbed her hand underwater. "Are you okay?" after a moment was spoken. "I'm sorry for being such a dink to you lately" She said while stopped weeping. "It's a pleasure to meet you, i'm PR. Whoa..." she started to look around. "Isn't this place beatiful? I don't know why i was so worried about, while near such a kind and patient Azurite" She said not noticing she had cracked her Gem.
She was startled to feel a hand grab her, even though it was subtle she was still shocked a bit. She went to pull away but looked down and realised it was peridot. She laughed awkwardly "Yea, I'm alright and it's fine I get meeting new gems can be difficult especially with the divide recently." Azurite took notice of the fact she seemed to have been crying. "It's nice to meet you too, I'm Azurite."
Azurite started looking around not noticing the gems change in attitude or anything else. "And thank you for the complime-" Azurite spotted her the green gems crack. "Peridot! Your gem, it's cracked! We need to get you healed... Oh and rose isn't on earth right now so she can't heal it! We need to get you somewhere before you start to crack more!" She said getting more and more flustered and scared. She didn't want to see a gem become corrupted especially a peridot that seemed to be non-hostile. "I should have gotten to you in time!"
"Uh, my Gem... It's fine! Don't need to worry, but you'll have to trust me that..."She gets out of the water and starts to put her Spikes near her chest. "...I'll be back soon"PR said with a smile on her face while piercing her own Gem, then suddenly poofed, letting her Limb Enhancers and her Shoulder Spikes on the floor. After a few minutes she got recovered, but the Gem was still cracked.
After she got recovered, she was wearing something more else than last time, now she got white star gloves, it was not a coincidence at all. "So, when i grabbed your hands, i saw your gloves and remembered about one of your questions" She showed up both hands after that. "Yeah, i'm a rebel! But i'm quite peaceful when i'm... me. So, i really liked your gloves, but i can take them off if it upsets you" Peridot said thinking in make a new pal. Her Gem finally started to heal a little bit, but not at all now.
She swam up just in time to hear her speak. "Wait what are you doi-?" Before she could finish the peridot had poofed herself. She waited standing in shock as she started to take in what was happening and what had just happened. She looked up as she heard the gem start to reform, her gem was still cracked.
"Wow, so when I was talking to you earlier, I was really tealking to your alter ego and not you?" She started to put the pieces together, she was glad she finally got a better understanding of the peridot. "And no, I don't mind at all the gloves look really cool. You must have a good taste in style." She laughed, joking around not really trying to lighten the mood but rather just being herself. She saw that her gem slightly healed, she had almost forgotten about the gems crack. `Wow, what an interesting power...` She thought to herself.
PR was starting to feel better since Azurite was cool with her, at least she felt that way. Now that PR finally could have some fun, she wanted to spend all the time she had, doing what she can to return the favor that Azurite did by helping PR to get out. "So... what about you? I want to know you better too!" She was excited to do something, like swin, race, dance, sing, but she did wanna know first what Azurite would like to do.
"What were you going to do before my interruption? I want to help you if you want" PR gladly said it, but was ready to rejection since all Peridot did was being a jerk. Although she believed that Azurite would forgive her if she really wanted to be friends.
She smiled, seeing the peridot become more friendly. Maybe this could be her first friend in the rebellion? She didn't want to think too far ahead or get her hopes up though. "Well I just recently joined the rebellion... and I just finished exploring the beach so I decided to look around at some other stuff. I actually didn't know where I was warping to, I kinda just activated it and appeared here. But we can explore some other place if you want to get away from the sea spire." She offered, knowing that there wasn't too much to do at this structure.
Azurite realised she might have been rambling a bit, she decided to offer a place to hang out that wasn't gem made due to the fact they were both rebels she might not want to visit a place linked to homeworld. "I've seen some cool places back at the beach if you want to go there, humans come up with some pretty crazy stuff." She laughed at the thought of some humans she had met over the past few weeks. "Crazy but fun."
PR loved the idea, she didn't get to meet humans by herself, Peridot always ignored them, just focusing on the Logs. "Cool, which beach? I really wanna meet some humans" She said excited to get there, so she asked if they were going using that same warp pad, cause she thought that beach could be neaby, but then she looked at her stuff on the floor. Their coordinates was 38.362488, -45.188785.
When PR saw it, she knew that Peridot did that, and of course, that they couldn't just swin. "Looks like we got to get up there first, we need the warp pad, unless you like swimming a lot" She chuckled after that. PR couldn't wait to meet the humans, she already saw them, but never got to really meet them. "Er, thanks again... for being so patient, you are really something, you know that right?" She said calmly while taking the Limb Enhancers and the Shoulder Healing Spikes that she dropped from the floor.
Azurite smiled as she saw PR's expression light up. "Probably the beach at the temple, it's really close to the city. Only about a four minute walk." She started to look for any way to get back up to the warp. Maybe she could use her weapon to climb up there, but she would need two of her weapon for that plan to work. Maybe the peridots limb enhancers could help? No... they didn't seem to have detachable fingers to make a helicopter like other peridots. She was snapped out of her thoughts by hearing peridot talking. "Oh" She laughed a bit. "Yeah, I don't think we could swim, or walk across the bottom of the ocean with all the corruptions."
She began to look around again when she heard peridot talk but in a different tone. She was a bit taken aback by what she said. Azurite wasn't used to compliments like this, she usually only got praised for completing a mission but this compliment seemed different. "Oh yeah, well you're welcome... I figured you were having a bad day so I didn't want to add to the negativity." She said, laughing awkwardly, a little confused on how the peridot called her 'really something' That part struck her as different, but in a good way. She shook off her feelings to get back to the task at hand. "B-but how are we supposed to get to the warp? I don't see a way back up there..."
Maybe it was a little bit more harder to meet the humans than she thought, after all, they still needed to get to the warp pad. "Okay, look, i'll get to point, i'm not very smart as my alterego, so i really don't know right now how to do this neither..." She hoped to figured it out quickly, she was thinking on any possible way to go to the warp pad.
After a few minutes thinking, the only conclusion she got was fusion, not just because she loved fusing, but because she wasn't going anywhere, but she didn't share this thought with Azurite. The stairs were unstable and her Limb Enhancers just allowed her to jump very high, but even PR knew that wasn't high enough, but maybe if they worked together they got a huge chance to get out in no time. "Okay, i'm not sure if this plan is so great, cause you know, i'm a little dumb when i'm myself" She nervously chuckled again. "So... If you grab me before i jump, then i use the Spike's attached ropes to make a catapult to get us there" PR explained. "Oh, by the way, if you want to add something, go ahead, but... Do you trust me?"
Azurite looked in complete shock at the plan. There has to be another way... She paused for a few seconds to think of any alternatives but she couldn't think of any. "It's the best plan we've got, and I... I do trust you. But are you sure this'll work, PR?" She asked getting visibly more and more nervous. Azurite couldn't believe she was going to do this but she had done even crazier things in the past, plus this gem seemed trustworthy, even with her varying problems but she had prolems too, everyone in these times seemed to have problems. She looked at the condemned and decrepit stairs that she would be leaping from. But she had to stay strong, like she thought before she had done even scarier things by herself but this time another gem was depending on her. "You lead the way?" She asked, trying to shake the nervousness away.
PR was glad to hear that, even more when she had another idea. "Yeah, for now, but i know you can lead too. But for now, i have the tech to get us out of here... Come" PR was ready to go, she charged up her Limb Enhancers after takes Azurite's hand. "Okay... here we GO!" She jumped holding Azurite with all her strength "HOLD ON! WE'RE GONNA BE FINE!" Then she made a catapult with her Spike's ropes quickly. Inertia helped a lot.
When they got there, PR started to look on water pool she made up there, the water reflection showed her own Gem, fully healed. She was so happy that everything was okay now, she could scream, and she did. "We're amazing! Next time you take the lead, i help you if you want, but i believe that you can lead the way too!"
Azurite fell down to the floor in shock. She laughed "That was so scary and exciting and... I can't believe we actually did that!" She laughed a bit more. "I've helped take down agates and fusions! But this was so amazing! You're so amazing!" She got up from the floor, her laughter slowed to a stop as she remembered the crack in peridots gem. "Oh wait your gem" She noticed that it was completely fine now.
Shaking the many emotions she was feeling right now she managed to speak with more sense than her previous commentary. "I've never seen a peridot with those types of limb enhancers." She thought that maybe they were made by peridot, it wasn't too far fetched since peridots are usually made to be technicians. "well now that we're back at the warp pad want to go see some humans?" She said while walking over to the warp pad.
After their landing, Peridot ran to the warp pad in excitement. "I said my Gem would be fine, i just wonder why took so long..." PR was confused cause she could be shattered if didn't heal in time, but she didn't think much about it. After what Azurite said, PR replied that these was not Limb Enhancers. "I hurts a little when a use it, but... Her mood was improving. "Hey! It was for a greater good huh?"
PR said that she didn't know how to make those Shoulder Healing Spikes, in fact, it was her alterego that knew how to make those. "Well, without further ado, let's do it!" She said running to the warp pad, when arrived she was jumping for joy waiting to meet some humans. "Ho-How do i activate this exact- Ooh nevermind, you lead the way!"
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.

*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
