"No, i didn't..." Peridot had calm down a little. After some time lying down on the beach, she started to want to show that she care too. "Were... You getting along?" She asked with a sad look on her face. "Ya know, with the Brat, i mean... with PR?" She knew that PR was better than her, everyone said that to Peridot when meeting her, just letting her down. "I don't care about status, but sure i know that PR is, in some way, better than i could ever be"
She didn't wanted to move anymore, just wanted to stay there until the sun explodes, but it was just for now, Peridot just needed time. "So, i really wanna know, even if it's a dumb question, i wanna know... Were you two getting along?" She grabbed the Shoulder Spikes, connected them, and pulled the Spikes to the air, standing still, aiming for her own head. "Cause i think i will give up MY existence, it's... pointless. Just can be one 'P' on this physical form. PR or Peridot, and i think we both know that i'm clearly the wrong choice"
She looked up from her arms "Hey no!" She reached to grab the spiked but didn't. "Me and her were getting along but that doesn't mean me and you can't. Some gem take a bit more effort to get to know but that doesn't mean anyone is better than those gems. I'm sure there is a solution to your problem, and if you aren't lying to me, then PR invaded your gem and made you extremely distressed as far as I know you haven't done that, that makes you better than her."
"You aren't the wrong choice, you aren't wrong and you aren't a choice to be made. You're a gem! And that's why we're- well, why I'm here is so that we can make choices on who we get to be, not be choices for others to make. And from what I understand you want to be a single gem. There has to be some way for you to make that choice." She thought that she must sound stupid. It was like meeting an entirely new gem again. She was wondering if she was making a good first impression, though she had already met her before at the sea spire.
The Spikes still pointed to Peridot, ready to strike herself, but she had to say something before it. Peridot gave an slow and empty laugh. "Ha... Ha... I like your determination... I would like to believe that stuff but..." She changed the subject. "Oh, by the way, you misunderstood, PR didn't invade my Gem... She's the other me, just like that, i don't want to explain better now, i'm tired of wasting your time... Sorry, but i already made up my mind"
Peridot quickly used her Spikes to pierce her throat, poofing immediately . After a few seconds she was already back, but since she didn't took time to regenerate, she was a little bit tinier than before, and instead of black and white, her clothes were only white. Confused, she started to look around. "Wha- What the wha!? I swear i wasn't fighting back this time, what happen- wai-wai-wait, Azurite!" She hugged Azurite after what happened. "Are you okay!? I said to not follow me Azurite, what happened?"
Azurite called out to peridot and reached out to try and stop her from poofing herself but before she could reach her she was gone. "Wait..." She mummbled, Azurite waited, expecting to be waiting for at least ten minutes so it came to her as a shock to see her back so soon, she saw PRs' new appearance and thought she rushed it a bit too much but it didn't look bad. "Yea, I'm fine." She spoke rather softly compared to how she usually sounded.
She looked at PR rather hurt, she wanted to be happy she was back and she wanted to hug her but she couldn't. "PR... why didn't you tell me? I would have understood, but you didn't tell me that you were the one invading peridots gem." She didn't know how to put it lightly like she usually does, she hated to bring the mood even more down but she couldn't ignore it. She would understand why she would hide it but why would she go as far to make peridot seem like the one who was in the wrong? She didn't know the full story but from what she had heard this was what she thought. She felt betrayed by PR and took a step back away from her.
PR was so confused with the question, but when she had a moment to think better she tried to give a shot on a answer. "Invaded? What... are you talking ab-" When Azurite took a step back away, she thought that Peridot made something bad to her. "What... did i do? Did i hurt you at any means!?" PR was about to lose her friend, she felt powerless cause she didn't know what happened this time. Last time, she fought back, but this time, Peridot gave up, therefore she can't remember anything since she turned back into Peridot.
"What do i do? Please tell me, i don't want you to be sad" PR was starting to get desperate. "Please... Tell me everything, i will say what i know" She imagined the worst case scenario.
"She said that she was the original peridot and that you were keeping her trapped. PR is that true? What is going on?" She was so confused she couldn't think right, she fell to her knees and started crying. "I was so scared I would have to poof you to get you back... then peridot said that you were the one causing the trouble, did you lie to me?" Tears started to roll down her face and hit the sand below her.
"A-and now by me being sad you're going to be sad! I can't even be happy for you..." She felt so useless and weak at this point, of course home world left her behind. She couldn't even defeat a peridot, she couldn't even hold her emotions together just because someone she was starting to care about lied to her.
PR couldn't hold her tears either, the hurt was so big, that she was sure that being shattered, poofed or whatever it happened couldn't hurt more than this. She was starting to remember... things she shouldn't. "No... It can't be! STOP IT! STOP IT! PLEASE!" Her memories was starting to come back quickly. "WHAT HAVE I DONE!? THAT POOR GEM I MADE!" She couldn't handle much more, she was crying out loud. "Why did you want me to suffer?" All memories mixed together, looked like a mess. "I LEFT THE SHIP, AND NOW I'M THE ONLY ONE THAT CAN REMEMBER!"
PR started to shapeshift into an Defective Gem, with no pupils, tree heads, one mouth, seven eyes and a slender body. It was so scary for her, but she wanted to show the truth. "Why did you want me to suffer?" Then she turned back to her previous form. "I had blocked memories from the day i landed here, while discovered i made a Defective Gem that an Diamond ordered me to do, but it was a failure, i've got traumatized because i was pretty new at this time!" Her cry just got louder, she really should not have remembered that, that's the reason Peridot and PR was split apart to start. But it was no one's fault after all.
Azurite watched in horror as she slowly backed away from peridot and PR still on the ground. "P-PR?... Peridot? Whats going on?" She said this much quieter than she had wanted to but didn't care about that now, PR and peridot were turning into a corruption. She wasn't sure if it was helping to split them apart or making them a corruption, or something worse.
"What do I do now?" She said half to herself and half to the gem in front of her. She shakily stood to her feet as she summoned her weapon in the same manner. They looked so hostile to her. "PR what's going on?!" Her tears continued to pour but now not because of sadness but now because of a fear she had not felt since she arrived on earth with her fellow Azurites.
PR was laying down, on her previous form, humanoid with white clothes. She already had shapeshifted back to "Normal". After she had calmed down a bit, PR could think before talk. "Sorry... I couldn't tell you the story clearer... I was very upset with myself" She stopped crying and stood up. "So... I was on a mission gave by White Diamond, she was trying experiments, trying to make new kinds of kindergartens so could maybe come up a new Gem, so useful that she could shatter the others... My mission went wrong, she chose me with less than one year old to complete the mission, i was so scared of what she could do to me if she discovered the mission went wrong, because she said that she would spare the Gem that made the new ultra Gem, when i got here on Earth, the first thing i saw was that what you saw right now, asking me why did i do that to her..."
She was done talking, but then she remembered that the question was if she lied. "Oh... and i hate lies, really. I swear i didn't remembered anything of that until now, i just wanted to be friends with you... Am i... hurting... myself? Peridot? I don't know how to stop this... I'm sorry, does that means we can't be friends anymore?" She said while crestfallen.
She listened intently at her story or explanation of what happened, though she was still confused on how it happened, how did their gems physically merge together? She decided not to ask, seeing as how it might upset her again. "I'm sorry that happened to you two." Azurite stopped her crying a bit hearing what PR had said. She hated to feel like she made someone bad for what they can't control.
"No no no! Of course we're still friends, everyone has their problems." She started to think she was being selfish, home world had conditioned her to never draw attention to herself, she was for other people to use as shields and soldiers. "I'm sorry for being so emotional, I know I'm not helping. I'm not supposed to be feeling emotions." She punched the ground in anger. "I'm a soldier! I'm supposed to be calm and just fight gems that are supposed to be weaker than me and I can't do either of those things! I just want to help fix you..." She looked up at PR with a feeling of hopelessness.
Azurite was upset by something she couldn't help as PR saw it. "I don't know what you heard out there, but we don't need to do, to say, to feel what others think we're supposed to. You're wonderful how you are Azurite" She was sure that Azurite would understand what's PR was talking about, after all she already knew Azurite enough to conclude that.
PR took a look on her own body, noticing how it was different than before. "I rushed the regeneration because I WANTED... to see you. But i chose this, and i would do it again. You can do much more than what you said now, if you really want of couse. Beat stronger Gems than you, if... they really deserve it. But you can be... You. Not what was designed to be from homeworld. She said with a open smile on her face, knowing that Azurite would get it. "You don't need to help me on that, i would let you if were possible but... I won't drag you down trying to make this. Still, you're the first Gem on earth that i've connected that much.
PRs' words really got to her, she had always been told to be what they wanted her to be but, now she could be more than they made her to be. Azurite decided to listen to PR even more. "If you don't want me to help you... I will stop trying for you. But know I'll always be here if you want help, not just for this." She let go PR, she wasn't really the hugging type but she just felt like she needed to at this moment. "I haven't started to look at you differently by the way."
She wanted to get rid of the negative thoughts she had been feeling so she decided to ask something, then got an idea. "Oh yeah I wanted to ask you if there's any other things you wanted to do on the beach or go somewhere else. I don't know many places either so you can pick this time." She offered to PR, wanting to get away from the beach and the negative emotions it brought with it. "Want to go on another adventure together?"
Now with everything settled, PR was wondering how did she got here without have to fight back, but after Azurite asked she what to do, she smiled. "Remember? I said that you would lead the way next time... Now it's next time, you can do this too" PR was ready for anyplace in the world, as long she was not alone. After PR asked to lead, someone was running from far away yelling to wait for her, it was Enid again. "Enid watch out!" Enid fell on the hole made by the previous fight, then started screaming in pain, she was with some scratches. "No! Enid, are you okay!? I told you to not follow me, let me fix you..."
But then PR noticed that if she got hurt with just a fall, if she pierced her, PR didn't even know what could happen. So she remembered that it's not the piercing that heals, it's the substance inside that she made, so she pierced one Spike with the another to squeeze the substance on her own hands, then she gave to Enid the substance. Enid asked if the medicine would hurt. "If it hurts a bit on Gems, then i assume that... Yes, will hurt... A LOT on humans" Enid thanked but wanted to her mom treat her slowly, she said sorry for following them, she just followed because she wanted to hang out with cool people too. "It's okay, you're cool too okay? Now stay safe please" After that PR glanced to Azurite waiting for the response. "Here was fun... Now what Azurite? Dangerous or not, i'll gladly go with you"
Azurite saw the girls mother walking near by. She decided to leave Enid be as she assumed she was in safe hands, and after she had said that she wanted her mother to help she knew that Enid would be alright. "I don't think it's dangerous... It's actually extremely peaceful." She thought there might be some corruptions, maybe there could be but she didn't want to alarm PR over something that may or not even be a problem.
She had wanted to visit this place for so long, ever since she had first come to the island she had felt like she never wanted to leave and when she eventually did have to all she wanted to do was come back and now she was finally coming back and with another gem. She couldn't wait to show her everything the island had to show. She smiled and motioned for PR to follow her while she quickly jogged with a bounce in her step to the warp pad. She waited for PR to step onto the warp pad so she could warp them to her possibly favourite place on earth, Mask Island.
PR was so excited to go on another adventure with Azurite, she grabbed her Limb Enhancers while running towards the warp pad, almost falling by joy. "Woah... I really need to manage my physical balance, Well, Let's go!" She restrained herself from the happiness she was feeling to not ending up damaging any structure on the arrival.
When they arrived, PR lost control for a few seconds. "Whoa... This place is beati-Argh... Wait, i recognize this Island, Mask Island, i already made a log here, i just want you to know Azurite, that there's a Gem on this Islands that ha-" Peridot lost control again, then PR fainted on the warp pad for some minutes. When PR woke up she was dizzy. "Wha-Wha-What... did it happened again?" She looked around her surroundings. "Hey, Azurite, i think i already been here... Aaaand i fought back this time, sorry, did i do wrong?"

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
*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
