"I already gave up on shattering you, there's no point on trying that anymore..." Peridot started crying by anger, while trying to shatter her own Gem with bare hands, of course she was in panic to do such thing. She punched several times on her own Gem, without hope, without thinking, moved by pure rage. "C'mon! Keep attacking! BUT THIS TIME AIM ON MY FREAKING GEM!"
After some time trying to do that, Peridot couldn't handle it anymore, was fatigued. "I can't believe this actually hurts less than fighting that brat" She laid down and stopped crying. Closed her eyes and tried to stop thinking, but it was no use. "Why am-afraid? Why- i- coward? I- get it..." She tried to talk but her physical form was already glitching.
Azurite saw her tears and couldn't help but feel bad, it was like seeing PR cry so she quickly gathered the healing limb enhancer spikes where PR had hidden them under the sand. "Hold on peridot, stay still." She placed the spike in front of peridots gem but realised she had no idea how to use the spike.
Azurite debated whether or not to give her the spike to peridot so she could heal her own gem or try to figure it out herself, as she had no idea how to be a technician so figuring out how to use the healing limb enhancer could have taken hours so the better option would be to give her the limb enhancer. "Peridot you can heal your gem! Please stop breaking it, you wouldn't be ending just your own existence but you would be ending PR's. I know you hate her but that's no excuse for shattering her gem. Please heal yourself." Azurite pushed the limb enhancers into peridots hands.
"I- use- Gem, it's already- enough..." Still glitching she laughed slowly by sadness, while her Gem was getting worse. "ɟlǝsʎɯ ʎq ʇᴉ ǝsn ʇouuɐɔ ᴉ 'ʇɐɥʇ ǝʞᴉl ɯǝפ ʎɯ ɥʇᴉʍ ʞɹoʍ ʇ,uoʍ sǝʞᴉds ƃuᴉlɐǝɥ ʎɯ 'ǝɹoɯʎuɐ ǝsn ou s,ǝɹǝɥ┴" Peridot started to punch weakly and slowly Azurite's arm, without stopping until she realize that something worse than shattering could happen, then she stopped and laid down again, but this time, she had a plan to get hid of herself.
Peridot's hands moving slowly were starting to make something on the sand, but it didn't make sense, so she erased what she drew in the sand and restarted over and over, until finally she drew it right. Then she pointed to Azurite with her index finger, shaking.
Azurite started to cry, seeing peridot glitch out and know what was going on but PR didn't she must have been so scared, Azurite knew she was. Hearing peridot try to talk but failing only made her cry more even though she tried to be calm so she could function more efficiently "Peridot how do I use it?"
She knew she couldn't speak and tell her how to use it but maybe she could motion how to do it or point out the steps or something for her to make things better but she was worried that the window for making things better would be closing as her gem was steadily cracking more and more. Seeing her form glitch and tear seemed to make her feel like this was something out of her and peridots control, she started to wonder if the spikes could heal such a crack. The crack in the sea spire was so much smaller than this one and she had healed it right away.
Peridot stopped sensing PR at all after a while. Peridot realized that there was no point trying to talk, so she just wrote on the sand the how to use the healing spikes, although she wasn't expecting for Azurite to understand. 'After put the device on your shoulders, make sure that your Gem are connected to the device through your body. Then concentrate to deliver all the substances. IT WILL HURT' after everything already wrote on the sand, she could only wait to see if it would work, and without sensing PR she had a new plan.
She didn't have any way to sustain herself and stood up anymore, so she just made a mimic on how to do, while laid down. She pretended putting something on her shoulders, then making a line through her own body to her left hand, and after that she just pointed to her own head. "ʞNIH┴"
Azurite finally collected herself as much as she could and loosely followed peridots' instructions. She wasn't sure how to use it but she got the basics, she wore the limb enhancers and snapped the rest into place. "D-did I get it?" For a moment in her excitement of how she might have gotten the limb enhancers to work she forgot that peridot couldn't answer but soon remembered that sad fact.
"There's only one way to find out..." Azurite placed the spike near peridots gem and focused on healing her gem, she waited and waited but nothing was happening. In her frustration she was about to pull the spike away and try again when some of the healing liquid from the spike came out onto Peridots gemstone. She was happy that it had worked but felt a searing pain throughout her gem when it had finally worked she held her gem in pain but looked back up at peridot desperately in pain. "Peridot! I think I did it... are you okay?"
After the healing process, Peridot could talk again. "Yes... Better than never" Without PR's presence, she was relieved that she could finally be her own, and she could finish her logs without interruption. Peridot just took her Shoulder Healing Spikes from Azurite and grabbed her Limb Enhancers from the water. "I appreciate your help, but now i got to make sure that i've already explored everything here" She started to walk around the island, looking for anything she may have missed.
But before she got much distance from Azurite, she had something to say. "26° Update on Log Land 14, I got full control again, the previous Gem following me won't be a problem anymore, i got rid of the brat... And i think this time was finally for good, now about the location... It does have some footsteps inside caves that i can see from here, the beach didn't change, the Pearl might not be a problem..."
Azurite was relieved that PR and to some degree she was happy Peridot was okay, but soon her happiness quickly stopped when she heard peridot speak. "Stop calling PR that! If anyone is the brat it's you. Now let PR come back or I'll get her out myself." She was getting tired of how rude and difficult peridot was always acting.
She summoned her weapon and sighed walking towards peridot, while walking towards her she was wondering even though peridot was an awful gem, PR was the parasite that invaded on peridots gemstone and she did cause peridot a lot of pain. Maybe it was better to keep PR compliant and silent, if PR was gone for good she was gone and couldn't feel anything anymore and peridot would be happier now that she was gone. She had made up her mind, if she left then maybe PR would leave for good and not suffer anymore, along with peridot. If she disappeared once she could do it again after she said goodbye. She was saddened to say the least by the possible departure of PR, but if it was for the greater good Azurite wouldn't let herself get in the way of that. "Just let me say goodbye to her. After that I'll leave you both alone."
Peridot tried to ignore Azurite, but when she asked to say goodbye to PR, Peridot saw an opportunity to show how PR is now. "I owe you, so... I'm gonna try to unleash it again, because i can't sense it" She knew that it wouldn't work cause she wasn't feeling PR's presence at all. but suddenly after thinking about her own fears, her sadness and loneliness, she was surprised that PR was still there. "Wait... H-How?" She started to panic. "No, it can't be!"
She fell and looked around quickly with fear. "W-Where am i!? What's that!?" She looked to Azurite. "Who are you!? Please don't hurt me!" She started shaking, when she saw her own Limb Enhancers and Spikes. "NO! NO! Get this off me now please!" She thought that these things were to torture her or something like that, she obviously didn't have a clue of what was going on.
Azurite was shocked at the sudden change, she heard PR's pleas and questions and was confused by how she acted as though nothing ever happened. Out of shock she unsummoned her weapon, she knew she couldn't think about what was happening she just needed to obey orders. She quickly ran to PR and quickly took the spikes and limb enhancers off of PR. "PR it's alright, are you okay? Well... No you aren't okay but you should be now!" She sat down at a reasonable distance away from PR cross legged.
Now she could think she thought about all of PR's questions, she asked where she was... who azurite was. Could it be possible that whenever PR lies completely dormant maybe she resets her memories in a way. If that were true everything Azurite had gone through with her although not a lot would be upsetting but on the other hand it would be easier on PR for her to say goodbye.
PR still cautious, but grateful sat down again, glancing at Azurite. "T-Thanks, but how do you know my name?" She concluded that something happened but she couldn't remember what. "I guess... I'm calm now, sorry for panicking... So, what happened? Do you want to tell me?" She thought that would be a great reason for she ending up losing her memories, so she decided to not force anyone to nothing.
After taking a good look at her own stuff, she remembered that she made all these tech stuff, so she was less afraid now. PR looked for a second at Azurite, then looked away blushing. "How embarrassing, what's this feeling now? I've just met her..." She whispered to herself while looking to the moon.
Azurite was hurt a little bit at the fact PR didn't remember her, everything they had experienced from the past days was gone and worthless at this point. "You don't remember me at all..." She sighed and wondered if it was worth it to try and get her to remember the past few days, her intention was to say goodbye to PR to make it easier on PR but now if she didn't remember her, peridot would leave her alone and make her life easier. "That's for the best... But my name is Azurite. I just saw you struggling over her so I came to help. Goodbye PR."
She sighed and stood up, she took one last look at PR and turned away walking to the warp pad. Azurite felt tears welling up in her eyes, no matter how much she wanted to go back and tell PR everything she thought that blissful ignorance was the best for PR. Azurite felt a coldness surround her as all of a sudden she felt just as alone if not more alone than before she met PR. As long as peridot was happy she would leave PR alone.
It hurts, something inside her was hurting beyond what she could take, but she didn't even know why, so when she realized what happened, the more the pain was growing, often she was remembering about everything slowly. "Bye..." PR said while the waves were taking her to the ocean. "Be careful..." She sadly said crying before gets underwater, but she refused to let Azurite see her like this again. When she was finally underwater, she let it all out, each tear merged to the ocean was another memory getting back.
The pain sometimes can unleash strange things, this time unleashed the truth about herself, she was being selfish all this time, but finally she could redeem herself, even if it would mean losing control to Peridot. "Sorry i couldn't be a better friend... Azurite"
Azurite saw PR leave the shore's sand and walk into the water out of her sight as she stepped onto the warp turning around to have one last look at PR before she left forever. She thought maybe she would leave not forever but maybe by some line of fate see her again one day, she knew she had left her for the greater good but couldn't help but want to see her again some other day.
She looked at the ocean where PR had disappeared into and knew where she was going. She closed her eyes and sighed, activating the warp pad in a distraught sadness of having to leave PR and in a way the island, as it would bring back too many bad memories of regret from having to leave PR. After travelling through the warp out she arrived at her destination, the sea spire.
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.
