Here we are! Kindergarten, the most infamous place on this planet. Well, ofcourse that depends on who you are asking. This place is usually filled with those mongrels running around, trying to kill you and what not. Might as well do this quick.
A small metallic creak gave off as Torbernite opened the machine. "Ah, here it is." he mumbled to himself, cutting away the wires that were in the way. Torbernite took out a box shaped circuit out of the machine, waving away the loose wires. He gave off a quick cough from all the dust flowing through the air, placing the circuit in the torn lightbrown backpack that he was carrying with him. He gave off a push to the towering machine making it tip over. The machine shattered in parts as it hit the hard ground, making quite the noise.
"That's 1.. 4..- Aha! Just one more." Torbernite exclaimed, walking towards another towering machine dragging his backpack with him. Once again, he busts the trapdoor open from the machine.
-It's a splendid day. Master (Zablan) and my other duplicates are working on the base and I'm suppose to be working the recruits. What a bother. Maybe I'll see something interesting today!- OOC: Each clone Zablan makes has a slightly different personality from their master, this one happens to be quick to boredom
As clone zablan was walking around the Kindergarten he spotted a smoke-like substance in the distance. "Wowzers! That's probably around half a gallon of smoke!" He quickly approached the area in order to inhale the smoke-like substance. "That's 1.. 4..- Aha! Just ...more"
He heard a voice in the distance, around the same area as the smoke. He immediatelythought that maybe there was a gem who could create smoke just like master around the corner. This only further excited the smoke imp. Finally arriving at the scene, the smoke tried to absorb the substance but was dissapointed to find out it was just dust, which could not be absorbed. Dissapointed he decided he might as well do his job and look for the gem who recently spoke. He realized he had not taken a form yet and any human like form he would take would only amount to a height of 1.5 feet at the moment. He realized that he doesn't HAVE to take a form, he floated off to the top of the machine as he scouted for the talking gem.
"Aha!" The smoke exclaimed rather loudly. He saw what seemed to be an unhelthy skinny old man who seemed to be searching for something. He decided to name him "Sticks"
"Yo! Mad scientist guy! Sticks! What is your power?!" The smoke exclaimed, trying his best to remain out of sight.

Torbernite heard a voice. In this place? No, that couldn't be right. Better answer it!
"Sticks? Uh? What? Where? Are they flammable?" Torbernite asked in a curious voice, dragging the boxed device out of the machine and putting it in his backpack lying on the ground. He gave a slight push to the tall machine now that it was useless. As it hit the ground, electrical shocks started surrounding the machine as smoke start escaping. An explosion shattered the machine in small pieces, smoke starting to cover the area. Torbernite waved his arm in front of him to clear his vision as he put his backpack back on. Torbernite looked curiously around him to see if there was someone else here, considering someone had just been talking to him.
How dissapointing. The smoke was not sure if the guy knew a nickname when he heard one but one thing was for sure, this guy meant business. As the smoke was about to reply he noticed Sticks pulling a boxed device out of a machine, curious as to what it could be, the smoke began to contact Master -Hey master, I got this weird old dude here, likely a gem, tearing up the kindergarten. He hasn't hurt anyone so maybe he is good but he seems pretty secreti- - the contact was cut short as before the smoke knew it, the whole place was filled with smoke! "One..two...four..Six gallons of smoke!!!!! H-How did this happen?! No matter! With this I can grow .2 feet and I can actually harm a darn fly! ...Not that I would" The smoke quickly inhaled the smoke and grew in size. With this increase in strength and size, his brain function imrpoved and realized it would be better to manually introduve himself to this Old gem, for he was likely the reason for this smoke. He condensed into a minature version of this man, except he was bald. Lightly landing on his feet he approached the Old gem.
"Hello! My name is...'Little-me'...now that I think about it..that is a really bad name, call me 'Friend'! And your name is Sticks right? Nice to meet you!" The smoke extended his smoky arm to Sticks.
Torbernite noticed the little creature, looking at it. Curious to what it was, he responded. "Why aren't you an interesting little thing.. Where did you come from? I've never seen something like you before.." he stopped, listening to the figure.
"Hello! My name is...'Little-me'...now that I think about it..that is a really bad name, call me 'Friend'! And your name is Sticks right? Nice to meet you!"
"Well, hello there Friend. And no, my name is not Sticks, although that would be a nice name." Torbernite responded. Heh, Dr. Sticks. What a great name that would be. "My name is Dr. Torbernite, former scientist and developer of the Homeworld technoloy." Torbernite paused. "However, you may call me Sticks if you prefer." Torbernite grinned. "May I ask, what is a curious little creature like yourself doing in a broken and decayed kindergarten? I thought myself that it was fully abandoned." Torbernite proceeded to brush off some ash of his white lab coat.
"Well, hello there Friend. And no, my name is not Sticks, although that would be a nice name."
Pleased the gem responded, but dissapointed his handshake offer was not recieved, the smoke lost his smile and retreated his hand. He continued to listen as the gem spoke.
"My name is Dr. Torbernite, former scientist and developer of the Homeworld technoloy." Confirmed. This is a homeworld gem, and all non-earth gems are disliked by Master. The smoke knew though that this gem might likely not be of any harm. Pausing for a moment to think, He decided to contact Master for a moment. -Hey master! I got some news for ya!- Master did not reply. That was very strange, he was probably very busy. The smoke contrinued ot listen to Sticks.
"...icks if you prefer. May I ask, what is a curious little creature like yourself doing in a broken and decayed kindergarten? I thought myself that it was fully abandoned." He thought it was abandoned, with this improved brain function the smoke was positive that Sticks was up to something. He decided not to reveal much until he got the go ahead from master. "Your name is really complicated" He exclaimed. He was not giving his full attention when he was given permission to call the gem Sticks.
"How about I call you Dr.Sticks~? And well, I'm just a...native...of this Kindergarten, it's far from abandoned, there are many creatures who will do you harm if you are not careful he-" Master responded. -Yoooo What's up Little-Me #3! Why did you cut off earlier?- -Master, I could ask you why you did not respond~ and can you please give me a better name?- -...(Zablan was silent for a few seconds) Fine, it seems that you have inhaled some smoke, huh? Interesting. Well since you are the first 'inhaler' I'll call you Smokey ok? Now, what did you call me for....and oh...DoNt EVER QuestiOn me, AGAIN!!- The smoke was taken aback, but was not shocked because he knows his masters darker side. -Weeelll I found this reealllyy cool gem, he looks soops-da-smart! He's walking around the kindergarten looking for...something. He seems strange, should I bring him over?- -Yeah Yeah, whatever, just make sure he isn't 'Bad'- The smoke was happy, but confused as to why he decided to leave the fact that the Dr. was a Homeworld gem.
"Hey, Dr. Sticks," The smoke jumped onto the gems face, their lips were so milimeters apart. Being so close, he whispered, "Inhale me."
"How about I call you Dr.Sticks~? And well, I'm just a...native...of this Kindergarten, it's far from abandoned, there are many creatures who will do you harm if you are not careful he-"
Torbernite smiled. "Yes, you can indeed call me Dr. Sticks." Torbernite paused. "N-native of this kindergarten? Far from abandoned? Well this is certainly some interesting information." Torbernite looked around him, trying to spot anyone else. Seemingly to no avail. "Who are you talking to anyways?" he questioned.
"Hey, Dr. Sticks, Inhale me."
Torbernite started straightening his lab coat, but before he knew it, the smoke jumped in front of his face. Torbernite frowned and gave off a confused look. "Say what now?" This sure was an awkward meeting.
OOC: Due to another thread Friends name has become smokey for clarification, but your gem doesn't know that YET
The smoke was intruiged as the talks were happening inside of his head. How could this old man know what was going on? It was likely he probably took note of the several faces he made and short pauses in their conversation. Either way, this gem was definitely smart. This put a big grin on the smokes face. As he thought about how to respond to that question without revealing much, he got a distress call from his Master. How bothering, it seems like there is a dark shadow appraoching the master near the base and according to one of the smokes he likely means harm. Smokey knew he had to go back and join with master but he was really interested in this guy and wouldn't know the next time he would see him since he might go back to homeworld...Smokey decided to stay for a little bit longer. Master would definitely think of him as a defect but that was unimportant right now because smokey had a great idea. He jumped onto the Dr's face asking him to take a deep breath.
"Say what now?"
Of course the gem was shocked thought Smokey. No normal being asks for other beings to inhale them. He had to explain and explain fast, master was likely in trouble. "You guessed I was having a communication thought stream somehow, that intruiged me. Well in that stream I was instructed to take you somewhere and in order for me to do that without being noticed I want you to inhale me. You are smart enough to know that smoke can cause Deoxynization which in turn can cause mental hallucinations. Gladly you are a gem so loosing oxygen won't kill you, but I will make you hallucinate a big green arrow directing you to where you can meet the..'others.' Don't worry they are not harmful at all. When I lead you there I will have to leave your body though so don't worry it's not permanent...yet. I know this all sounds weird but I haven't harmed you in any way yet right?" The smokes eyes widened in await for a response....

Torbernite thought about it for a moment. Indeed was the smoke telling the truth. It was a very risky choice, but fun nonetheless. This would either go really well or really bad, the thought about inhaling a creature still didn't sound right.
Torbernite was still doubting the safety of this action. But hey, he had done crazier things before. Nothing else interesting had happened here on this planet, might as well do it. "I don't see why not, a little adventure won't hurt." he said in a high tone, giving off a quick smile. Torbernite did as Smokey had said and took a deep breath, trying to inhale the smoke as he picks up his own backpack. "Now, who are "the others" as you mentioned?"
"I don't see why not, a little adventure won't hurt." Smokey was very happy! He was afraid that Dr. Sticks would say no due to the fact that this was a very strange request. He had a big grin as he was being inhaled, ignoring the weird feeling of being in someone's insides. Smokey was now fully inside Dr. Sticks and proceded to the brain. "Now, who are "the others" as you mentioned?" "Hold your horses old man! I'll get you there soon enough! This is my f-i-r-s-t time~" Said smokey rather sexually. Of course, it was just fooling around. 'First things first, I must make contact with Master on his current location' Smokey attempted a telepathic link to Master -Hey! Master! I got the old man, Dr Sticks, where are you now?- -Ah the smart defect Smokey...I'll hold my anger for you just get your ass over here, the building- 'Defect...?' thought Smokey unnaware of the fact that Master thought of him as a failuire. Dissapointed but still ordered, he attempted to remove the right amount of oxygen and the right areas of the brain to produce a green arrow path hallucination in front of the old man. "Hey! I'm new at this so I can only keep this up for 30-45 seconds, but you're a gem! Get to the location as fast as you can! All your questions will be answered there." The playfulness in his voice was gone due to the fact he was still hung up about being called a defect.

Spiderweb Obsidian was just flying around only happy to see that the kindergarden was remained untouched. He easily flew down near a gem drill. Only a smile cracked out of him to see the gem drill that created him. It also made him happier to see the hole he came out of "There I was" he pointed to the hole. "I'm only just wonder how my wings can fit in that not so big hole". His self reunion shortly ended as he noticed off in the distance that he wasn't alone. "Hey these might be more homeworld soldiers, but I don't know for sure. Let me just sit right on here and get comfortable." He soon noticed that a gem with some clones ((hope I didn't mess that up)) "double, triple, quadruple, ... What comes after quadruple?" He asked himself. He soon decided to enter soon enough once he gets the whole picture.
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
