She was shaken about Peridots warning, so she would have to be a bit more alert. When PR woke up again Azurite helped her to her feet again. "I think it did, and PR you don't have to worry so much about what you do right or wrong. You're fine. And peridot told me you had been here before. She said that there was a gem on this island so we might have to look out for any... unstable gems." That was her putting corruption lightly, she absolutely hated to think about corruption. She started to remember the first time she had seen a corruption, it was shocking to say the very least. She quickly pulled herself from her memory and stepped off the warp pad and looked around.
"But whatever gem is here I'm sure we can handle it." She didn't dwell on the subject any longer for the aforementioned sensitivity of corruption, but mostly because she couldn't help her extreme excitement from being on the island again. She ran around looking at everything nearby. Azurite seemed to remember everything in some detail as she would look at things rather hidden by bushes and under rocks. "I remember this tree!" She said quickly climbing onto one branch, she sat down on the rather thick tree branch, her legs swinging over the edge of it laughing. "I missed this place!"
PR followed Azurite laughing in joy, she was glad they were having so much fun. "Nice to see you hap-" She stopped following Azurite and pointed her finger to a upper cave. "Stop fighting back and let me finish, your brat! There's a Pearl up there, i already met her, she seems to HATE rebels, so watch your back... It's all i wanted to say" She fell again, but stood up instantly. "I'm getting used to fall now" She giggled.
Peridot and PR seemed to being in sync now, though fighting against each other sometimes. After Peridot said what she had to say, PR came back to follow Azurite, slowly this time. "Are you okay? I forgot about that too, you know i won't hide anything that can hurt you"
She glanced up at the cave, the pearl wasn't in sight so that was good and the cave seemed far away so if they kept quiet they should be good. "I know you wouldn't and I wouldn't do that to you but there's a home world gem up there, should we leave or just go to the other side of the island? If a home world pearl is here then her owner must be near too... we should just keep quiet, I think she wont be able to hear us from all the way over here anyway." Azurites happiness was slowly fading to a bit of worry.
Azurite looked around wondering if any other gems might be nearby she saw that the area was clear while looking for the safest and clearest route to take to get to the other side of the island. She spotted a promising natural stone path that seemed to lead deeper into the jungle part of the island but the clear rock path would be a good direction to lead them to the warp pad. "You wanna go to the other side?" Azurite nodded at the area she was looking at, still with a smile on her face as she was still happy to be on the island with PR.
PR started sweating as she walked. "Of course, but... Wait a minute please, i'll be right back" She ran to behind a tree in the right side of the jungle. Now that she was hidden in the jungle PR started to twitch her eyes as Peridot came back. "What now? Did i do someth- Shut up... Could you please shut up, look, i have a deal, as you're dumb as a pebble, let me take control without fighting back, now. See? That's your problem, you'll ending up upsetting Azurite with your- And you'll ending getting us... Okay, i'll try my best your............ Okay, i'll trust you, but if i wake up and Azurite looked at me like last time, i'll never stop fighting back. Deal then"
Peridot returned from the jungle towards Azurite, watching every step herself made. PR may haven't concluded yet, but Peridot already made a Log here, so she could past by the island without being seem by Pearl. "On my Log Land 14, i discovered that here lives a Pearl without owner, i mean, she lost her owner, an Emerald. But i know that if we don't touch any plant, she won't sense us, and if we go as far as possible from that cave, she won't see us. Got it? I-I-I mean..." She remembered to not upset Azurite, then she sighed. "Do you... Feel safe now? We still can be here"
Azurite tried to look where PR was but couldn't see her, she heard her voice but she couldn't make out what she was saying but hearing the tone she assumed they were fighting. She was about to go over to see if everything was okay but she saw PR walking back to her. By the way she was walking she knew that is wasn't PR it was peridot and she got a bit worried. "Alright, and yes I do. I saw a clearing over there it's in the jungle side so it had plants but it's easy to avoid them because it's on a rock path. But is PR okay? Did you have to fight her to take control..?" She was worried about what PR might be feeling right now if she had indeed fought to take control, but she remembered no matter what peridot would do it wasn't PR. She wouldn't and couldn't look at her differently.
She was a bit unsure if she would have to fight peridot again which she would hate to have to do again, but by the way she talked Azurite felt as though she was genuinely trying to warn her. She looked at the path they would have take to get to the other side of the island. It was coated in plant life so they would have to be careful but the only saving grace was the stone path that had an extremely low amount of plant life opposed to it's non stone path counterpart. She thought she was over analysing things but to avoid detection she couldn't be too careful.
Peridot had to answer the right way. "Yes and No, i fought with myself just now, but i've made a deal, if when she takes over again, happens the same thing that happened last time, ya know? The look on your face, your mistrust on her... She won't stop fighting for... Your happiness, at least that was what i understood"Telling all this to Azurite made Peridot blush, so she lowered her head while following Azurite hoping that she didn't see it.
After walking for a while, Peridot quickly stopped Azurite from going any further as she saw the cave. "Look, there's the cave, we're gonna be spotted here" On the left was a path that they could easily avoid the plants, but they would be spotted. On the right was a path covered by the jungle trees, but it was almost impossible to not touch the plants. "Just... Perfect... Well, i'll have to kill the plants somehow from the ground up... I mean, if it doesn't upset you, the last thing i want to do is break the deal"
Azurite pondered on what peridot had said, 'She wont stop fighting for your happiness' ran through her head bringing countless thoughts with it making her blush lightly. Her thoughts along with the dark blue coating her face went away when peridot stopped her from walking any more. She looked at peridot in confusion when she heard her speak.
She laughed nervously "I-I'm fine with it, but maybe there's another path on the other side of the island? Away from the cave where she is." She started to look around for another option. "Oh and um, you're okay to do whatever you want you really don't need my permission to do things." She smiled and laughed a bit. "We're rebels we're supposed to be free to do whatever you want. Your plan is probably the best one though." She whispered the last sentence just to make sure the pearl didn't hear her and giggled a bit. "So what's the plan, peridot?"
The Spikes were ready to make a path, she put the Spikes into the ground and focused to only insert the toxin from her substance under the ground. The healing substance just heal with all the components. With the right alchemy, it turns into a deadly toxin, but it requires a lot o concentration. "Wait, i didn't even remembered that, i won't allow it" Peridot whispered thinking about something that PR could do that she would hate. "Azurite, wait here until the toxin ends up killing everything in a vertical path, if you touch the toxin, you just poof... Or your Gem gets melted, don't know, don't care, i'll be right back"
After Peridot walks away from Azurite, she started to punch her own Gem. "Hey brat, i need to warn you about fus-" Peridot got PR's attention. "What? Did something go wrong!?" She yelled. "Keep your voice down your brat, i just want you to know that if i see that i'm fused to anyone... That anyone will get shattered" PR was starting to panic. "No... No,no,no, i don't want that deal anymore..." Peridot was about to talk but got interrupted by PR again. "DEAL'S OFF!!!" PR got running back to Azurite as fast as she could very worried of what could have happened.
Azurite was left a bit worried by the fact her gem could be completely melted if she touched the substance and peridots complete lack of care for that fact. She took a step back from where she had injected the poison when she heard PR yelling, she could tell it was PR yelling because she seemed to have a different tone of voice when she was in control. "Are you okay?" She quietly yelled when she saw her running back to her.
"Hey! Watch out for the plants!" She said a bit louder. Azurite looked around to see if the pearl had heard them talking, she didn't see anything out of place or anything moving so it seemed they were safe. She looked at where peridot was running and she seemed to not be touching the plants, but she kept her eyes fixated on where she was running. "PR I heard yelling whats going on?" She was worried if peridot had done anything wrong or did anything to hurt PR.
When PR saw the plants withering, she went into despair. "Why...? What... Did i do? How did i do this?" Now PR couldn't afford to tell Azurite what she heard. "Please, i... Really don't wanna talk about this Azurite" She started to walk slowly through the path that Peridot made, feeling not only physical pain, but psychological pain. She was hoping that after all that was done, the things wouldn't be so messed up.
She saw a little waterfall when she crossed the jungle. In normal circumstances she would be happy to be there, but she was just wanting to not let Peridot take over again, but she kept herself together to not scare Azurite. "It's beautiful, isn't Azurite... I wish we could keep this moment forever..." She said with a smile on her face. "Or at least keep you safe forever..." She whispered to herself.
"PR you didn't do anything, it was peridot she needed to... poison the plants to create a path for us to get around that cave. She did it with your healing spikes I think she made them poisonous somehow." Azurite knew PR was trying to not worry her by her sudden change of tone. "You don't have to fake your emotions PR... you can be yourself." Azurite was scared to make her feel bad for trying to get her to show her true emotions because she could have been seen as rude but she wanted to make PR to be more comfortable around her.
She felt bad knowing that PR thought she was so emotionally fragile she would be upset at the slightest of things. "If you don't want to talk about it that's fine but I think you might need to use your healing spikes to fix all these plants, it might spread throughout the entire island. I'm sorry for letting her do this... I just wanted to show you the rest of the island so bad without putting you in danger of being spotted by the pearl up there." She looked around at the dying plant life around her, how could she damage the place she liked the most? She guessed that she did it because she liked PR more.
"I'm afraid Azurite, but you don't need to worry..." PR hugged Azurite. "We're fine..." Her Healing Spikes started to heal all the roots. "The island is fine..." PR let go Azurite. "Everything is fine" All that she said, she said with a big smile on her face. PR would not let anything like this happen again while she could control herself. "I wonder if you feel safe now? Because i'm... Really, the bad feeling is gone"
Without worries she could tell that she was happy to be there, she was feeling peaceful enough to just lay down and look to the sky. "Everything here is so beautiful... Thanks for bringing me here, i'm very glad we're having fun together. I knew you could lead the way too"
Azurite was happy peridot seemed okay. "No problem and yeah I feel safe and I agree, everything on this island is amazing but what made you come back instead of peridot? I did hear yelling." She said calmly, not sounding upset but more so interested to find out what brought PR back, had peridot broken the deal somehow?
If she did she was wondering if peridot had put PR and herself in danger. The fact PR said she was afraid didn't put her mind at ease either. "Why would you be afraid?" She said in the same calm tone as before, trying not to alarm her or make her feel worried. She sat down and looked around at the beautiful plant life and trees that looked as though the leaves were made of thin green crystals.
The last thing PR wanted is to put someone she cared about in danger, which would be the case if she said why she was worried. "Azurite, i want to tell you, but if i tell you, i'm afraid you'll get hurt in the future" She thought for a moment about the future, and remembered she was still all white clothed and tiny. "So... Please, don't ask me again about it... It hurts when i can't tell the truth, because i hate lies, especially when it comes to be a lie to a really close friend"
Now she wanted her previous form back. But she didn't want to leave Azurite alone, so she warned her before. "Hey, i'm gonna take my previous form now, i'm not so comfortable in this shape" She giggled, but started to pull out her spikes. "Would you please enjoy the island while i regenerate? I'd love to come back seeing the smile on your face" She pierced her head again, poofing instantly.
She held a smile before she poofed, but when she eventually did poof she sighed and frowned. What wasn't PR telling her? She hated lies but Azurite hated not knowing the truth. She was wondering what it would take to get her to tell her the truth, in the past everyone had lied to her. Her azurites said they would be together forever as a team, her diamond made her believe she was a necessary part of her colony but now she didn't even know what to believe before the truth would come out.
Azurite tried to enjoy the islands beautiful scenery but couldn't when all she could think about is what PR might be hiding from her. She said she wanted to tell her but she might get hurt if she does, how could she get hurt from this? She had so many thought running through her head she couldn't focus on anything else. What was PR hiding from her?
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
