Defective, sure it was one way to put it. "Indeed, I'm... But unlike mostly defective Gems, i might still be fixed" She said while still searching, and after some minutes she found something. This time was something shaped like an rock, but still was sturdier than the rest. She picked it up and was a shattered purple Gem gathered together in one place. "Weird, i have a lot of questions, but first... Let me see if i can recover this Gem" Peridot opened the healing substance capsule of her Spikes, delivering an goop on the Gem, hoping to know what happened back here. "It's an Amethyst Quartz, that's for sure. This place was abandoned after all the Quartz Gems have emerged, at least according to my records"
After the recovering, the Gem started to reforming, but when she did, was revealed to be corrupted. She was enormous, purple, four-footed and had no eyes, with hair all over her head, not to mention her lack of teeth. Peridot immediately tried to use her Spikes to poof the Corrupted Gem but she still needed to close her capsule, before she could do it and attack, the Corrupted Gem already stunned her on the wall, leaving Peridot without her Spikes and Limb Enhancers. "How about a little help here guys!? We're all in danger while-" The Corrupted Gem screamed very loudly interrupting her, but she already made her point at least.

Bloom looked at the giant monster. He was terrified. He shouted "What the hell is that?! Is that- Is that a gem?!". He looked at the guards. They immediately ran and attacked the monstrous creature. They poofed it, and the gem fell on the ground. The moonstone just stood there. He was shaking. He never seen a gem like this before. It was... Exciting! Bloom have never felt so alive! But... He was still scared. What was that thing? It was weird... And interesting! He walked slowly towards the peridot. He asked her "W-What was that thing...? Was it... A gem...?"
Bloom wanted to know more. He wanted so badly. What happened to this gem? Why was it so big? Did it control itself? So many questions! And he wanted answers now!
Peridot seriously thought about getting him another pair of glasses, cause that one didn't see to work well, after all his own crew poofed the Corrupted Gem, he probably could saw the Gem falling. She picked up the Gem and bubbled it, but with nowhere to send the Gem, she started to build a vault for the bubble, an small one. She sighed. "Yeah, it was a Gem... But now it's just what remained from the effect of The Great Diamond Authority... Corruption" Peridot got a little carried away while explaining, but when grabbed all that needed and built the vault for the bubble, she stopped jabbering around.
"You know, i wouldn't mind to work for the Diamonds if were to help someone, you know? Because when you work for a Diamond, you work for nothing in return... If you work AT LEAST to help someone, they're gonna trust you in the future... Or they're gonna owe you one... But i'm not against the Diamonds, i just don't see the meaning of such slavery. But if you want to call me a traitor for not agreeing with them, suit yourself"

Bloom looked at her, he was totally shocked. "What do you mean the effect of the diamonds...? They did that...? But... How? I mean, they would never do such a thing... They won't, right?". Yes, he started to doubt the diamonds. Maybe they weren't who he thought they were. They were... Evil? No, at least he didn't think so. No one would mean to do something like that! Anyways... He wanted to know more about the thing, the "corruption".
He looked at the guards and said "Em... would you please excuse us for a moment? I... I need to talk to this gem. So... please keep a distence for a little while.". The quartzes walked away and Bloom added "Thanks.". He turned to the peridot and said "Tell me more... About this corruption."
She was ready to tell him everything about it, but first she had to share this to everyone as possible. Peridot walked towards his crew. "Sorry, but it's not fair leave they out of that. This is an important knowledge warning" She was in the middle of everyone now, ready to talk. "So... In a glimpse of light the Diamonds can send an corruption beam through all the existing matter in the universe... At least as i know so far" Peridot just didn't know how the diamonds could do that exactly.
"Heya... Quartz guards and Peridot, don't beat yourselves up when you ending up doing something wrong up there, remember..." She gave an empty laugh while looking to the blue Gem. "Always can be worse when a Diamond that don't find you useful any more is involved... I'm just messing with ya'll" As dark as it sounded, she just did it to have something to laugh at it.

Bloom looked at her. No, she can't be serious! She is just joking... Right? He was just tired of it. This peridot made him change the way he looks on everything! But... She was just playing with him. She tried to turn him against his own creators! It won't work, though. He is loyal. At least he thinks so... Anyways, he didn't want to be around this gem anymore. She makes him uncomfortable. He didn't like her. She annoyed him.
"Just... Leave us alone. You are a terrible lier. The diamonds are great! They... They would never do that! So screw off! We don't need gems like you around! I am just tired of you. I'm done. Go away and never come back!". He started to get angry again.
Peridot liked the way she was getting on his nerves, so maybe some facts added up would make him even more mad. "Ya know, i beg to differ, i find myself a excellent liar when i want to be... But what would i gain lying to you about our own creators if i don't care on which side you're on, i just want to have the right to tell you in the future: I told you so... While you're getting shattered, corrupted or worse... I didn't mention yet that could be worse punishments right? Oh yeah, i can't... You don't seem to believe me" She knew that he was confused, he didn't stopped to look away then to her, ask more about it, then stop believing, she could use it, but in the shape he was, it wouldn't be fair at all, even for Peridot.
Learning through the years that about science, everything has a price, she wanted to show him one more thing, but first she needed him to know what's the price. "Look, you have to give something in order to get something. We were made by an kindergarten... that kindergarten that we were made of, collected resources around it... So everything here had living things before the invasion of a Diamond, so this place it's not prohibited for the own inhabitants of this planet to come in. Although i still don't know which Diamond was... Yet" She was just trying to explain the basics of why this place was supposed to be abandoned, but doesn't necessary means that others can come around.

Bloom looked shocked at her. Could it be...? Have the diamonds lie to everyone...? He coulndn't believe her. She must be tricking him. He just looked away. He wouldn't confess it, but a little bit of what she said made sense. After all, he worked on the kindergartens and kinda knew how they worked. Still, it was hard for him to belive what she said. He stayed silent. He didn't look at her. He didn't want to look naive.
He looked at the ground. He was very confused. Small whirls of wind started to surround him. He was upset, and you could tell it. His eyes were full of tears. Maybe... Maybe she didn't lie. But... He didn't want to believe her.
After the explanation was a matter of time make him believe in the facts, but plans changed in a matter of seconds. When Peridot was going to check on him, she wasn't expecting for this. "C'mon... What's the hold up now!?" When she saw his tears, she started crying with anger. "You... Wretch! I give you info and that's how... That's how..." She wasn't able to control herself for much longer. "... That's how you repay me..." When she finally lost full control, after a few seconds standing still, she suddenly hugged him.
The anger has passed, there is only concern now. "Please, stop, you don't need to believe me, just..." She was feeling so bad for what she did. "Just don't get hurt okay, neither here or on Homeworld, i don't want anyone to get hurt... Sorry Peridot, Sorry Guards, i didn't mean, i... You guys made a great job so far" She finally let him go.

The moonstone's mouth was wide open. Why did she do this....? She put her arms around him in a weird way, but why? Is that... Is that a sign of hatred? What is that? He never experienced something like that before. He asked her quietly "W-What was that...? Did you... Try to do something to me?"
She was nice to him. No one ever has, except for her. But still, He didn't understand! He just couldn't! Why would she do that?! It is something that a homeworld gem will never do! He was surprised. Are there other gems like her on earth? He was interested. But shocked. It wasn't normal for him. "W-Why would you do that...?" he added to finish it.
She was a bit confused. "I've tried to comfort you, did i failed? You seemed sad... And i guess it was because of something i said" Usually when something went wrong with someone, she thought that was her fault, cause she didn't fight enough to stop bad things from happening. When he asked why though, even she didn't know the answer. Sure she feels bad when someone feels it too, but she wasn't sure if that was the answer. "I... Don't know, maybe it's empathy, it can't be the first time you witness this kind of gesture, your crew is awesome, they might have this too" After a while, she wanted to bring him to a cool place.
"Hey guys, want to come over here? I need to show you that, it's beautiful" She walked to the edge of the Kindergarten where's grassy and livid, she saw an bull skull near the Kindergarten but tried to ignore that. But then she remembered that she didn't have introduce herself yet, neither him. "Oh, right... What's your name? Do you have a name? Mine is PR" She smiled.
Post by Blue Moonstone on Jul 22, 2018 8:28:52 GMT
Bloom was never more confused. Did she say that her name is PR...? But she is a peridot! And a moment ago she stated that! What's happening with her? The moonstone said carefully "PR...? But... But you are a peridot! What do you mean PR?"
Are you stupid? Are you trying to mess with us? That's what Bloom wanted to say. But he couldn't. The gem... Was nice to him. Even if this was a scam... He didn't want to hurt her. He wanted to repay her like she deserves to. She was strange... She was different. But she treated him like nobody ever has. And he was amazed by that. It... Kinda touched him. Because... He never felt like this before.
PR presumed he didn't have a name then. "It's okay if you don't have a name, but can you guys tell me what kind of Gemstone you have then please? So i can talk with you easily, i know that the one over there is Peridot, but... Are these Amethyst guards?" She wanted to know everyone better, but they didn't talk much, so she waved to them from the grassy field.
She saw a small tree sprout, she carefully used her Spikes to deliver a healing substance on the floor, after a while she wondered who planted it there, looking directly to the grass, she got lost on her thoughts. Maybe the blue Gem had planted it, maybe some Human, maybe it was planted by some other way; She sat down for a while.

"You are... Strange. Where did you even come from? And why are you acting so different then a moment ago? You- You are interesting. Like... I don't know, but... You are different. Would you... Would you mind hanging around for a bit? I think we could do something with you."
He wanted to investigate her. He wouldn't tell her that, but he did. Somehow she interested him. What kind of defect made her turn against homeworld? How did she get here? It... It truly interested him. It excited him, to meet a gem like that... So why wouldn't he ask her to stick around? If she didn't want to, the quartzes could just take her against her will. But that would be a little mean... Wouldn't it? Mean? He never thought of that... The things that they did were... Mean?
PR unfortunately didn't pay attention at all to what he said, she was still sitting on the grass thinking about a lot of things, wondering when they would come nearby to talk to her. After a while, the tree sprout started to grow faster than usual, glowing too. PR was relieved that it really worked, but her endeavors were still a little unclear on this place. She laid down, then started to gaze into the sky.
When she realized that the blue Gem had talked to her, she snapped out of it and stood up again. "Oh, sorry B-Blue... Can i call you Blouey? Could you repeat please?" She was a little embarrassed, but still wanted to be friends of them.
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
