Yesterday is as ancient as a millennia ago, because both are forever out of reach.
The lunar sea spire...A prehistoric gem structure that used to flow like a river with gems of all shapes and sizes. But those days have long gone ever since the warps were destroyed, now the trapped gems on earth no longer find comfort in this beautiful place all they can think about is home but not Malachite didn't want to go home like these gems. From his past, Home was not a place that he knew.
The warp pad shone with a bright light, a silhouette of a gem could be seen inside of it. Seconds later the light disappeared. Malachite stepped off the pad onto the rocky ground. He looked at the large tower. The structure was in extremely poor conditions, the walls looked as if they were hit with a meteor shower. The roofs were about to cave in. Looks like this is gonna be fun! The blue gem said to himself.
Malachite looked back at the warp-pad "Where in the world is Spinel, that guy said he would be here"
He turned his look back at the tower. He took a step onto the bridge, Looks like that things gonna collapse at any time right now.
"Nonononon..." Mumbled Spinel as he approached the warp pad. "I hate the ocean... I can't stand the ocean..." Spinel is okay with the ocean as long as it's safe, like if there's a rail or something, but if there's just nothing there to stop you from dying a death of horrible salt water things... "I can't believe I'm doing this... I CANNOT believe I'm doing this..." Spinel stepped onto the warp pad, closed his eyes, and sent himself to the Sea Spire.
Spinel opened his eyes, and slowly began walking off the warp pad. "Wúfǎ wúfǎ wúfǎ... Malachite, what in God's name did you bring me here for?" Spinel was nervously stepping from side to side. It was kind of obvious he wasn't really himself right now...
Malachite continued to examine the spire until he heard the loud ping from the warp pad behind him. He turned around quickly to see a nervous Spinel coming towards him. "Wúfǎ wúfǎ wúfǎ... Malachite, what in God's name did you bring me here for?" He rolled his eyes at the anxious gem.
"Well hello and nice to see you too I guess" Malachite said to spinel
He walked over to the sea spire bridge "From what I've heard, One of those gem grubs misplaced the Moon goddess statue, and it's our job to find it in the spire...or what's left of it" He stepped onto the crumbling bridge with cautiousness "I remember coming here, this place was filled to the brim with gems! Stories from all over the Galaxy!"
"Unfortunately, I don't remember these stories." said Spinel, putting sarcastic emphasis on unfortunately. Spinel walked over towards the bridge nervously, tapping it with his foot. "Alright then. I'll assist you. Just..." Spinel looked to the water that was surrounding the place. "If you need me to go deep into the water, I can't do it." He stepped onto the bridge slowly and began to walk across it. "So, who or what is the Moon Goddess?" Spinel asked ignorantly. "Here on Earth, the most followed religions are monotheistic."
The bridge was so... weak. 'That's probably what happens when something is untended to for ages.' Spinel said to himself sarcastically. "This statue, what purpose does it serve to this temple?"
(OOC: Couldn't think of anything to say, so here's this mess.)
Malachite continued the slow stroll over the bridge looking over the edge. "Unfortunately, I don't remember these stories." He heard Spinel say "Well, can't do nothing about the past i guess" He replied with a shurg. "So, who or what is the Moon Goddess?" Malachite turned around to face the gem and began explaining
"I don't exactly know much about it except that it keeps this very structure from being sunk into the ocean, Now that it's gone missing the structure is slowly losing it's stability and if not returned by the time the moon comes up. This thing will sink into the ocean"
They crossed the bridge and had now entered the spire. "Well, guess the first thing to do is to find those gem grubs" He said looking around "Who are on the upper floors"
"Very well then." Said Spinel, who started to walk a little bit faster. "The quicker this task is completed, the better." Spinel thought over all possible scenarios, until one sprung up in his mind. What of this was some sort of trap by Malachite? 'There is a high possibility he heard that angry rant I had, mentioning my corruption... It does not matter, as it does not interfere with my plans. Besides, I am most likely just being paranoid because of all the seawater...' Spinel shuddered at thinking that final word...
"Did I ever mention to you that I cannot stand the ocean? A dark abyss full of saltwater and hideous creatures is just unbearable to me..." Spinel shuddered once more. "Pure genuine terror controls 71 percent of this planet..."
"The quicker this task is completed, the better." "Indeed my friend, Let us venture onward to find this statue and return it to it's former glory" He said with fake heroism in his voice(Acting Manly) Before laughing at his own joke and continuing on up the stairs.
"Did I ever mention to you that I cannot stand the ocean? A dark abyss full of saltwater and hideous creatures is just unbearable to me..."
Malachite rolled his eyes "Yes you did, But it's alright. Even if we do fall in i got your back!" he said with a nudge on Spinel's shoulder. "Pure genuine terror controls 71 percent of this planet..." "Heh-Heh. Yeah and the humans only discovered 9% of it over these millions of years! Wait no that's the ground, The humans only discovered 2% of the ocean. So who knows what's under there"
Spinel laughed at this failed attempt at horror. "When you've been on Earth for as long as you can remember, when Earth is the only thing you know, it's hard for someone to tell you something about it that you didn't already know. Points for effort, though." As they made their way to the end of the bridge, Spinel saw multiple small Gem creatures in the distance.
"Hmm... What are those?" He started to sprint towards them and laughed at their appearance. "They look like little land-shrimp." He got next to one of them and got on his knees. "Hmm... I think I'll keep it as a pet!" He bubbled the shrimp and transported the bubble to his home. "No sense in letting it be lonely..." He quickly ran around, bubbling the rest of them and transporting them to his home too. "Now, where is that statuette..."
Aquamarine warped to the Lunar sea spire, he had promised earlier that he would make it if he could and he was here. Albeit a little late. The gem cracked his knuckles and looked up at the spire. He had been here before but that had been on a cloudy day, it really did seem to stretch all the way to the heavens. He wanted to go there for safety's sake of course, if people were exploring the spire then they could cause a part of it to collapse and it would be handy for him to be around for the day time explorations. The sun would set soon however, so they would have to make rapid progress while they were here. He heard the sounds of movement and rapid bubbling, so he decided to go check if that was them. He leaped up to the level they were on in a single bound, defying the gravity of the earth easily with his ability. "Hey guys, my names Aquamarine. I am the guy to help you if the structure starts falling down, remember? Oh and I would not take those home. They eat literally anything that is not solid stone like this place." Aquamarine tapped a wall to prove his point and felt it shudder. He decided to step away.
Malachite continued forward suddenly he heard spinel "Hmm... What are those?" He looked in front of them and saw the little creatures "Oh, Those are-" Before he could finish the gem sprinted ahead of him getting closer to them. "They look like little land-shrimp."
"Hmm... I think I'll keep it as a pet!" Before he knew it Spinel has bubbled all of them and sent them back to the temple "SPINEL!" Malachite shouted, pulling at his curly hair "You just moved those poor creatures from their native home! And they can't be kept as pets, They're dangerous." He explained to him.
"Hey guys, my names Aquamarine. I am the guy to help you if the structure starts falling down, remember? Oh and I would not take those home. They eat literally anything that is not solid stone like this place.
Malachite spun around quickly to see the unknown gem enter the spire. "I don't recall asking you to help us- You know what, Nevermind. I asked for someone else but it seems you can take their place" Malachite gestured for spinel to come back to him. "My name's Malachite and this daredevil over here is Spinel" Pointing at Spinel.
"We're looking for the Moon Goddess Statuette, Without it the spire will loose it's structural stability, Strangely enough this place possess a gravitational pull that keeps it from collapsing. The Statue equalized this pull and without it, the weight of the spire is too much and is causing it to tumble"
(Okay few things to point out, The grub-like creatures are called "Crystal Shirmp" They don't eat anything, just the bagels that steven offered. The reason pearl told him not to touch them is because they're deadly to the touch. And please AquaMarine. Put your post in different paragraphs like Spinel's and mine. It gives me a headache to read it. Other than that, Have fun!)
(OOC: I knew the Crystal Shrimp thingy xD. That's why I called them "Little land-shrimps.)
Spinel knew he could get carried away when it came to animals, but he never realized how childish he became in their presence. Not even now does he realize this. "Very well then Pearl..." Spinel smiled madly at his own joke. He had heard that the Crystal Gem Pearl was overly protective, and always a "Downer" when it came to things that could be dangerous.
"Hey guys, my names Aquamarine. I am the guy to help you if the structure starts falling down, remember? Oh and I would not take those home. They eat literally anything that is not solid stone like this place."
"Hmm..." Spinel didn't very much care for people who played hero. "Thanks for coming, I guess. We had best get back to looking for that statuette, Malachite."
ooc: Ohhh, I did not know that. I saw them on the show but they only appeared on one episode.
Well, really I suppose they'll only eat everything that is food. But they are a health and safety risk. "Yeah your right, this place is going to deteriorate slowly over a few thousand years until a pelican or something knocks it off balance.
Then it's going to be of no use to anyone any more. Which is not to say any gems would be using it ayway after all those years of gravitational neglect. "Where is the best place to check do you think?
From my last visit here I remember it being all the way at the top. I can get you up there quite faster than climbing if you can't fly or otherwise transport yourself. It might be a good idea to check going up as well.
We would hardly want people coming back here if the mother to these crystal shrimp was about... Curupted gems often take leaders of greater size and strength."

(Just letting you know, crystal shrimp aren't corrupted. They're their own species surprisingly, which is pretty cool! )
"From my last visit here I remember it being all the way at the top. I can get you up there quite faster than climbing if you can't fly or otherwise transport yourself. It might be a good idea to check going up as well."
"No, it's not there. I forgot to tell you but one of those crystal shrimps stole it and went back with it's group. And there's thousands of them here! So we have to search the floors" Malachite turned to go up a set of stairs, putting his hand on the railing for support but only to have it give way and fall below them.
"Once again be careful Spinel, This place is getting worse by the second" He climbed the stairs higher to find the upper floor literally crawling with crystal shrimp "Nobody touch or bubble any of them, Any of them could be holding the statue. Unless Spinel already bubbled one of them with it"

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
