Azurite was a bit cautious because of the fact she was so young. She pulled PR to one side, "Hey, PR I think it's not such a good idea to explore with a human child, they can be really fragile and if they get hurt it's a really big deal. They can't heal like we do." She said not knowing if PR was aware of how humans are or how they work.
She didn't have much experience with humans but since a lot of her time was spent admiring them from a distance, almost like a nature documentary she knew a lot about them. Probably a bit more than she really knew about gems.She looked back at Enid as she happily agreed to join them. Azurite declined the water in a polite way saying that Enid should have some after all that running she did. She looked back at peridot to see what she was going to do, azurite wouldn't really mind if she joined but she was aware of all the risks that could happen.
"Oh... Really?" PR was going to do anyways cause she had her Healing Spikes, but after thinking just for one second, it was enough to remember that PR don't know what would happen if Peridot came back holding an human child's hand. She really don't know and didn't wanna discover. "O-Okay, Enid... You probably should stay... er... SAFE! Yeah... Safe, but not with us" Enid asked if they were ditching her, cause she was used to it. "No, i-it's just safer that way, look, where's your owner?" Enid asked if she was talking about her parents. "Right, where's your pare-" Enid interrupted saying that her Dad was in heaven and her Mom was busy right now working all day.
PR wanted Enid safe too. "Okay... Then your Mom is busy, why don't you go find your Dad, where's Heaven?" Enid started weeping. "I'm really bad at those things..." Enid begged to go, she didn't have any friends, she just wanted the picture to have a reminder that someday she could make friends as her other school colleges made. "Look, we are friends, sorry if i hurt you, but it's dangerous, we don't know anything about children... Do we Azurite?" But this was not enough, Enid started to follow them to see what they were doing.
Azurite was so shocked at how sad the child started crying, she wasn't mad, she didn't know weather to explain to PR or to comfort Enid or just laugh. She giggled slightly, "We don't know anything about children and I'm sorry if she upset you." It seemed this human didn't like heaven. She had watched humans before but she had never seen one talk about religion and death, for some reason that wasn't something people talked about at the beach.
She was a bit confused at how the child was still following them after crying. "So... where are we going exactly?" She looked over to PR, Azurite actually hadn't planned out what to do if Enid had followed them. "We shouldn't take her to gem structures, OH! I know!" She whispered to PR. "What about the sky arena? Half of it's broken off but I think she has the sense to not jump off a cliff. You've been there before right?"
"HELL NO!" PR lost control for a second. "Sorry Enid, i swear i didn't meant to say that!" Enid asked what was going on. "Azurite, help me out here please, i can't be near her, i don't know how much longer i can fight against Peridot" She whispered hoping for the best. "Enid, you will walk near Azurite now, okay? We're going to this civilization you live" Enid said it was called Beach City.
PR went straight to the point with Azurite. "Thinking better... I'm going back to the beach, Azurite please go ahead to... Beach City" She said while was sweating and very uncomfortable. "Please... Do... Not follow me..." Just getting worse, but she walked back to the beach, near the Temple. "Not too shabby eh? Now, why does this little brat always tries to screw me up!?" She was yelling at herself. "Well... I will show this brat who's controlling this situation now... After poofing i want to hear what you got to say... you little Green Star Gloved Braaaaaa-" She used her spikes to poof herself and after a few seconds she came back without the Gloves, then grabbed her stuff quickly to have something to poof the Azurite, she was very mad at how things didn't worked out the way she wanted.
She quickly picked up Enid and ran her into the housing area of beach city with a bit more speed than humanly possible trying to keep the small human safe despite the speed, she was successful. She placed her down and told her very sternly that she could not follow, making sure to get through to her. She used her dash speed to reach PR, she became a blue blur as she sped across the beach, sand flying behind her. She quickly stopped to a halt looking quickly around, she saw what looked like PR a little in the distance.
She quickly jogged over to the green gem as her figure became closer and closer. "PR! Are you okay? I'm sorry.. I-" She looked at the lack of gloves and the over all tense atmosphere when she arrived. "PR... is that you?" She said more quietly than she intended, but still loud enough for her to hear. She took a few steps forward very cautiously.
PR lost full control, on Peridot's perspective, Azurite was the cause that took so long for Peridot take over again, she was so mad. "You! I wouldn't care if you were just useless, but now, you ruined my Log Ocean 62, because that brat you were talking to, screwed with the coordinates!" Peridot was furious with Azurite, she just pulled out her Spikes to the air, used her Limb Enhancers to jump on the statue and was about to poof her.
Peridot knew it was gonna be easy, she made her Spikes to heal and if used correctly even shatter someone. But it was just the begging, instead she just attack her with the Spikes, she climbed over the statue, ran into Beach City and took the metal she found there. She was ready to strike. With a blank stare on her eyes she just aimed her Spikes to Azurite's back, while the Metal was aimed to her chest. "No time for last words"
Azurite had no time to think, she acted on pure instinct from her training and purpose as a soldier. She quickly dashed sideways, putting around 10 feet between her and peridot. "Please leave! PR just wants to be free... why are you doing this to her?!" She yelled at peridot, confused at how such an amazing gem and such a horrible one could be connected.
She was panting from the sudden change. She remembered her promise to PR, this wasn't PR it was peridot. They aren't the same gem. She summoned her bladed brass knuckles, she didn't want to use her weapon because peridot and PR had the same face. It was so hard to shake the feeling that she was attacking PR but maybe if she poofed her PR could come out again. But what if she didn't? What if she needed to heal, should she risk it? Yes, but she won't make the first move. She didn't want to attack peridot unless she absolutely had to.
Peridot heard these words, then bowed her head, started to pretend to be crying. "Why..." She walked slowly near Azurite. "Why are you such an idiot!?" Her Spikes activated behind Azurite, but she missed, at least it was what looked like. Peridot started to look deeply on Azurite's Gem, already imagining that Gem completely shattered.
"Don't you know anything about this brat? Didn't she tell you? I'M THE ACTUAL PERIDOT!" She yelled with hate. "That brat you met is keeping me trapped!" After calm down a little, she said with a empty smile on her face: "Don't worry, i'll make it quick" The Spike's ropes grabbed the metal, from behind Azurite, coiling to make a deadly giant metal weapon about to tear Azurite's physical body apart.
She knew she couldn't move much, she could either stay still and try to reason with her or start to attack. The first option seemed way too risky. She quickly moved to the left and sliced one of the ropes half way, making the metal weapon fall slightly. "Why can't you two separate? You clearly don't like each other!" Maybe she could do both options at the same time, with another swift motion she completely chopped one of the ropes in half.
Azurite looked around, no gems were around to help her. That might have been a good thing, they would have poofed her instantly and bubbled her without thinking and she couldn't access the bubble storage room. She was done waiting for attacks, Peridot had made her intentions completely clear and she couldn't risk being shattered. She ran at Peridot, getting ready to cut her in half if it meant getting PR back. This wasn't PR.
Peridot stood still pretty confident, she took Azurite's strike. "Not bad, not bad at all, but ya know... Peridots are really sturdy, if you want to finish me, aim on my Gem, i would gladly take the hit... and take you with me! As your weapon is near your Gem" Peridot was starting to lose the patience, but admired her courage.
"It did hurt a bit, i'll admit... but you're no match for me, you should have shattered me when the brat was under control" Peridot heard what Azurite said, and laughted. "I'm not a fusion, there IS NO 'WE!' I'm myself, THE END!" She put something on her right Limb Enhancer, then kicked Azurite leaving her right Limb Enhancer with Azurite. "Enjoy this, I never forget reinforcements" There was a bomb on her right Limb Enhancer, ready to explode.
She started to panic, she knew peridots were very sturdy so if she threw the bomb at her it wouldn't effect her, but if she threw it at her weapon she would be defenceless. "I would never shatter a gem, especially one as flawless as PR! A status you could never be even close to reaching!" She threw the bomb at the weapon peridot had made.
A massive explosion made the metal and rope smash into the ground as they separated from each other, she used the sand in the air to her advantage, she sprinted to peridot and got her in a choke hold while pointing her weapon against her gem. "Now, I'll either wait for you to poof and bring PR back. Or I'll poof you and bring her back myself." She said this in an incredibly threatening tone, one she wasn't aware she could speak in.
After a moment, Peridot just noticed how many time they spent in a useless fight. "Enough..." Peridot's Spikes took Azurite off her, then Peridot jumped to the giant statue. Now the Spike's ropes started to make a whirlwind on the sand, bringing and trapping everything nearby to a hole, including Azurite. "I don't care about Status, i just want to be normal again!" After she traps Azurite on the sand, the hate was gone. "Eighty years! I've been searching the reason why i'm here, why i betrayed the Diamond Authority..." She started to weep angrily. "WHY EVERY SINGLE TIME I FEEL SOMETHING GOOD OR BAD, I CAN'T BE MYSELF, I CAN'T CONTROL MYSELF... I feel like... trapped, exactly how you are now, but in my case... i don't have any trace of hope"
Peridot sat down on the sand to rest a bit, while her spikes was letting Azurite free. She didn't wanted nothing this to happen, but it did, she couldn't help it now. "Go on, poof me, i give up..." She laid on the sand crying. "I didn't asked to be like this" she quietly whispered to herself. Peridot let all the Limb Enhancers and the Shoulder Spikes fall from her body.
"Peridot, I'm so sorry I.. I didn't see your side of things, I thought you were invading PR. I wont poof you." She said kneeling down to peridot, extending her hand outwards. "Maybe if you explain I could help. Maybe there could be a trace of hope." She offered, PR had seemed so nice and caring but she was the parasite making peridot her prisoner? She didn't understand how a gem like this existed but she seemed to be in pain so she naturally wanted to help her however she could.
"I wont poof you and I'm sorry we had to fight but I get why you did it, you were just scared to be trapped, right? Is there any way for you two to disconnect in any way?" She couldn't help but think it was some sort of emotional fusion, she couldn't really figure out how they could have been connected. She couldn't believe that PR was lying to her or not lying but not telling her, she made it out to look like peridot was the bad gem in this situation. Was she using her for personal gain? She began to draw a connection between PR and home world. Just using her to do what they wanted, she didn't want to jump to conclusions especially since she couldn't ask PR herself but maybe that was a good thing.
"Look..." She took a deep breath. "... As a technician, i know how to do a lot of things, including learn new tech related stuff, but..." Peridot stopped weeping and took another deep breath. "... There is no way to disconnect, it's the same Gem, same core... I'll just get to the point now, there IS a way i know how to merge myself with that brat, like a fusion, but every time i try to merge, my Gem starts to crack slowly, then i black out"
Peridot was thinking on a way since Azurite didn't see to give up easily. If Peridot fused with someone before making the merging, she could have a chance, but she hated fusing so much, she already had to deal with PR, when she thinks about fusion, she just can think about disorder on her head while fused, so it was out of the question. "See? Not a single trace of hope, as i said. Now please stop making dumb questions"
"I think you hesitated for a second... was there something you had in mind?" Azurite looked at peridot with concern. "I don't ask dumb questions by the way." She looked away from her as she tried to think of what to do. "I don't know how to help." She sighed, sitting cross legged next to peridot looking down at the ground. "I really don't know." She folded her arms and buried her head in them, needing a break from what she had experienced.
Just to think that a simple trip to the sea spire ended up in her trying to solve a problem she barely understood. She had no idea what she was doing or trying to do. She just wanted to help, she hadn't received any help in her life and due to her past paired with her compassionate nature it turned to determination to help gems to get the help they need. The help she never had. She stopped talking, if peridot wanted to talk she would.

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 broke the space warps to delay Homeworld
*Thanks to Roses Message gems now know what the Kindergarten was used for
