Azurite was mildly sad that PR felt trapped and a bit angry with peridot for making PR feel that way. "Fusion could be that place where you don't have to worry about her. If we fuse I won't get shattered, peridot doesn't control you and I'll make sure of that. I don't care about her threats and I get it if you don't want to fuse but just know I wont let peridot harm either of us." She had a rather serious look on her face.
She had never fused with another gem before and she was absolutely not going to let someone as awful as peridot get in the way of it. Azurite wouldn't want to force PR to fuse of course but she wanted to know what would happen and get PR to understand what she was thinking and for her to understand what PR was thinking. "PR, I won't let peridot hurt us."
PR laughed while blushing. "As always... I believe in you Azurite" She was thinking how should they fuse. Instantly could be faster, but PR wanted to have fun. "So... Wanna dance? I know we don't need to, but i think it's fun, you know?" As she didn't remembered her landing on Earth, probably they would not have any psychological problems.
"Eh... I don't really know how to dance but i'll try to swing my body thinking about good things" PR leaned on one hand, and began to spin, but fell while doing this. "Okay, one more time" She giggled, then did the same time as before, but this time she was shapeshifing her hand to an drill, digging the floor and spinning fast enough to make her Limb Enhancers and her Spikes fall off. "Woaaah... I'm stable now, your turn... Before i get dizzy again please" She was laughing so hard with joy she forgot about all her problems.
Azurite was so excited to fuse with a gem other than another Azurite, and not only was it not another Azurite but it was PR. Azurite started to dance, doing various modern style dance moves as her gem started to glow. She moved her way closer to PR while dancing until she was only about a foot away from her.
She saw peridots gem start to glow which only made her more excited to fuse. "Let's do this!" She exclaimed as she spun peridot away from her and then into her as they turned into a big mass of light, their gems rearranged to fit the new form they took. Azurite opened her eyes or rather PR's eyes or their eyes. "W-whoa... PR! We did it!" She looked at her new form and saw their limb enhancers lying on the floor below them. "This is probably a better limb enhancer than those things, huh?" She laughed. "What gem do you think we are?"
"Well, i guess that we could call ourselves... Turquoise, let's see what tricks we got" She used her metal bending powers with her Bladed Brass Knuckles to expand her weapon making something like a giant metal claw. "Woah, okay, i think that's sharp enough, let's use only if we need to fight... Hopefully we won't need to fight" After she retracted her weapon, she started to run towards the jungle jumping and had a surprise.
When she jumped she ended up on the island beach. "... Awesome, we can jump that high... But now the Pearl should have seen us" She jumped back to take PR's stuff, then jumped to the warp pad, hoping to leave before cause any trouble. "I do have hair now, nice. Are we good to stay like this for a while or... You don't have to... No, i think we're fine..."
The Azurite side of Turquoise couldn't believe that that it had actually worked, home worlds propaganda had made her believe that different gems fusions didn't come out right but she was sure they were lying to some extent, but she was still a bit doubtful so she was still pleasantly surprised. "Yeah I like being fused! But, where do you wanna go, turquoise?"
Turquoise laughed at her own joke, when she realised this her laughter kind of stopped but then continued because it was a funny joke. "What about the sky spire? That place seems kinda cool for a fusion it has a lot of places to explore and nearly fall off of..." She began to try to think of possible places to go to but nothing really came to mind.
She thought again of what she told and laughed. "Wait, did i say Sky Spire? I meant Sky Temple! Well, without further ado, let's go" But when Turquoise was about to warp to the Sky Temple, she saw something going on her direction from the ocean. "Ha! I have eyes on my back buddy!" An little purple corrupted Gem dashed into her direction but didn't even could touch her, she already had poofed the corrupted Gem by reflex with her weapon.
She got a little shocked after this. "Oh... Sorry little buddy, i didn't mean to... at least you won't suffer anymore" Turquoise bubbled the corrupted Gem, thinking about how she should control better her emotions and her powers. "Okay then, we didn't need to do that, but i think it was for the best... Let's go then"
"Wait, that was... corruption." Turquoise started to relive a moment of azurites past, she had just crash landed on the beta kindergarten from the rebels attacking her. She looked up from all the smoke mixed with dirt and saw an azurite with a cracked gem on the ground under the fallen ship behind them. She turned around and saw two others getting poofed and bubbled while another two got shattered, after all of this the rebels must have not seen her as she was hiding behind the rubble of the broken ship. Turquoise heard growling, she looked back and the cracked Azurite gem had turned into a corruption from the crack in her gem. As soon as she made eye contact with the corruption she snapped out of her dream like memory.
"Azurite what was that?" The PR side of Turquoise asked her Azurite counterpart. "P-PR I'm sorry I..." She became unfused making PR land on the ground below and Azurite land on the warp pad. Azurite didn't know what to do but she knew she couldn't stand to be here anymore she tried to think of where to go but couldn't think at all so she just activated it, not caring where she was going, she just needed to leave.
PR quickly stood up and tried to reach Azurite but it was too late, she was gone. She wasn't ready for all this information at once, she raised her hand toward the warp pad, hoping that Azurite would come back, but this time perhaps it was not up to Azurite for her to come back, so not matter how much she believed in her, what she saw while they were Turquoise was chocking. But even still after all that she didn't lose her hope, she knew that Azurite would be fine. PR hold up her tears because if Azurite needed time or something like that, she would gladly stay out of her way, no matter how much it could hurt.
"Well, Well, Well... Looks like i didn't even need to stop the fusion. Despite being disgusting, i think i affected you without a finger after all" Peridot started to take advantage of PR's deep sadness. "What!? What do you mean!?" PR was so confused by what was going on now. "Your little Brat, don't you get it? I lied to myself, i wouldn't interfere on the fusion because the only thing keeping me out of my business was the other Gem... Now gone. However, i thought that would be MY side of story that would frighten her. Well, it doesn't matter, now if you don't give up... What are you even gonna do?" PR sat down and started to hit her head to an rock very hard, over and over, each time with more strength, without saying nothing... For hours, thinking on a single reason to not give up... Nothing.
Azurite arrived in what seemed to be an endless desert, once she had arrived she couldn't even walk off of the warp pad as she broke down and fell to her knees in grief and fear. She had tried so hard to get over her fear of corruption, over her grief and fear of Azurite but every time she tried to get over her fear she felt bad because it was almost like she was trying to forget about her. She began to cry, reliving those final moments with her friends was too painful for her.
She stayed in this state for hours when she realised when or rather... how she had remembered about the corruption, she remembered that she had left PR on the island with peridot and the fact that peridot had threatened to shatter her. Azurite had said PR wouldn't get hurt as long as she was there but she wasn't there with PR, peridot was free to harm PR in any way she saw fit. She quickly warped back to the island and looked around seeing the green gem hitting her head against the rock, thinking this was peridot trying to poof PR painfully she quickly ran to her and kicked the rock out of her hands. She punched what she thought was peridot in the face with all the strength she could summon. "Don't hurt PR!" She yelled summoning her weapon, getting ready to do anything and everything to peridot for trying to harm PR.
When she got punched in the face, her visor broke entirely at once because of the damage PR had already dealt to herself. Then she woke up from the trance. "Argh... How long have i been doing this? I broke my..." She looked around and saw Azurite with her weapon summoned. "Oh... About the fusion, sorry, i really should not have said such thing to you while i knew about Peridot" PR was feeling an horrible headache, not only because of the rock and the punch she received.
When Peridot sensed that her plan had failed, she gave up again and stopped fighting back. Azurite gave PR hope again, yet the same time fear. She didn't know when Peridot could strike and shatter Azurite, cause Peridot already realized that she was the one giving determination to PR, if it fades, she could return, avenge herself and continue her journey. PR laughed with sadness. "Guess i'm too selfish to let you go... I hate it"
"Wait, PR?" She took a step back realising that she had harmed PR and cracked her screen. "PR I'm so sorry! I saw you hitting you head against a rock and I thought that it was peridot trying to hurt you!" She looked at the ground around her, seeing the small pieces of PR's broken visor. She was surprised she was strong enough to have broken it but she quickly got the thoughts out of her mind when she thought of how she had broken the visor into so many pieces, she hurt PR. "PR, your visor I'm so sorry I didn't know it was you!"
Azurite rushed towards PR helping her to sit up. "And... what do you mean you are too selfish to let me go? And it's okay, I liked the fusion!" She was nervous PR would be mad at her, or maybe peridot would be mad at her and try to shatter her for not only fusing but punching her physical form. She wasn't sure if peridot could feel what PR felt, she could see what PR was seeing and hear what she was hearing so maybe it wasn't different with pain. All while thinking this turquoise was in the back of azurites mind.
PR thought she deserved more pain after what she done, so she didn't mention about the broken visor. "How can i cogitate our fusion... No, cogitate we're being together when anytime Peridot can outsmart us?" She went to the oceanfront and finally saw how dark her pupils were, feeling that Peridot was always watching every step she was about to make. But then she remembered what Azurite said. "PR, I won't let peridot hurt us."
"Okay... I think... I know we're gonna be fine, with you by my side i know that. Thanks for coming back Azurite" She said smiling and sitting on the shore while the sun was setting. "I wish that every good being were able to enjoy their lives before all the stars..." It was getting too dark for her, but shinier on her eyes.
"PR, peridot can't outsmart us. She can only manipulate us, and she can't even do that well. She's tried to keep you compliant within her gem but she couldn't even do that right, I think that she thinks too highly of herself." She stared at the sunset reflecting off of the water starting to see stars appear in the sky. "She isn't better than us and she isn't worse." She hoped her words had meaning to PR.
"I'm sorry for cracking your screen..." She continued to stare into the water as it reminded her of the sea spire, when she first met peridot and PR or rather how she got into this mess with PR and peridot. Azurite still liked peridot but was wondering if the benefits outweighed the problems, she was being selfish. PR needed Azurite to protect her but that was azurite's purpose after all, to protect.
She remained in silence for some minutes, holding on to not let Peridot take control again. "It's starting to hurt..." She whispered to herself. Without knowing how much longer she could take, she took distance from Azurite after grabbing some pieces of her own visor. "Don't worry about that Azurite, i did it myself, wasn't your fault" She said while walking inside the ocean.
PR started to dig into the water, putting her Limb Enhancers and her Spikes there, hiding in a hole. Still underwater, the pain began to increase. "It hurts... A lot" She said to herself underwater feeling that any moment she could lost control again, then she came back running to Azurite. "Azurite, please protect yourself, summon your weap-" Suddenly she stabbed her own Gem with her visor pieces with all strength she had, until crack her own Gem a bit. "I don't need nothing but that to finish this, if i can't have control of my own body, none of us are going to! THIS PAIN IS... NOTHING!"
Azurite stood back and summoned her weapon, before peridot could say another word Azurite sprinted towards her with immense anger as she saw the damaged gem. She swung her fist at peridots head with all the force she could summon along with her weapon making peridot crash to the ground head first.
"She did nothing wrong! Stop telling her you'll shatter me!" Azurite kicked peridot deeper into the sandy ground. "We both know you can't lay a scratch on my gem!" She looked at peridots gem. "Now let PR out so I can help heal her and your gem before we have to fight. I might accidentally damage your gem more than it already is." Azurite stood over peridot, looking at her with rage and frustration.

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.
