Aquamarine was sent floating in space, far away from everyone. Soon he could hardly even see them, all he could hear was his own breathing. This was pathetic really, but he had no way of saving himself as the farther away he got it only seemed to get darker and darker. He clenched his fists, knuckles going white on his weapon. The terror of being lost in here forever woke up something in the gem. Suddenly, away from where anyone could easily see him. His skin became purple, he dropped his weapon, a smirk appeared on his face. Then he caught himself on a black platform made out of shadow and darkness that he created for himself. He aimed himself back then made the jump back over he began to close the distance much faster than he lost it. Finally he would arrive, clinging to the side of the pad he arrived in with a pistol in his free hand. "...." He smirked. "I'd like to know why you are hold up in this hole of all places."
To Ky's genuine surprise, a bigger bad guy appeared. And he was an asshole.
His lips drew into a frown. "What kind of temper? I'm not such an angry guy." Unless he played Mario Kart with the humans; then his fist tended to smash through the television in seething rage. Somehow, Kyan was certain that wasn't what this baddy referred to.
"Man if I had known we were gonna have a talking session I would've brought some tea." Kyan spoke as casually as he could, working hard to tame his trembling words and tongue. A few other gems seemed to be speaking up as well; one tossing threats around while another seemed to have some sort of mental breakdown in the distance.
While their words hung in the air, Kyan's glance flicked to the stone tossed their way, and he aimed his dominant foot towards it, beckoning the board forward with the gentle ease that so often accompanied terror. If the motion caught their shadowy friend off guard it could accidentally trigger the start of a fight and like hell did Kyan want to fisticuffs with this bro. No, not yet at least, not if he didn't absolutely have to. For now, this was an opportunity to learn.
Kyan took a look around at every one of the gems, throwing each one a flat hand gesture to wait. Do not engage. Finished that task, he returned his attention to their adversary. "Okay, so, answers. If you want, we could swap questions to keep it fair. You give us information, we give you some back, yeah?"

Unlike the shadow creatures the light illuminating of Meta did not seem to effect Black Star Sapphire, he simply had a look of mild curiosity. Politeness and refinement was evident over what details could be made out of his face, this gem seemed to have a degree of old style values and chivalry that existed a innumerable time ago.
"But I think that was as much a passive-aggressive assessment on our fighting ability as anything."
"It was not intended to be interpreted as such believe me" He noted "I have my reason for returning him, and at anyrate i'm already well aware of your fighting ability and other information about you, Ms Autunite. The incident on your Gem war ship for instance and your 'previous' relationships. I digress though revealing that information to other is at your leisure so I will remain quiet.
His voice had a degree of professionalism with a kind but overall blunt mannerism to it. He had subtly been gazing past Meta. "I would of thought you to bring your multi-coloured gem friend. I must admit considering what I viewed of his fighting several years ago it took me by surprise how much he had changed. Its a shame really, i hardly thought a harden warrior like him would have his gem cracked so easily, but I suppose that is how destiny struck him."
"Okay, so, answers. If you want, we could swap questions to keep it fair. You give us information, we give you some back, yeah?"
He looked over at the Kyanite Gemstone as he spoke "Tempered did not refered to your personality but more the aura that comes with youth. I must admit though it is strange to see a Kyanite Gemstone. A newer race of stone homeworld uses I assume, they have been rather busy recently. Regardless I assumed that we would already be information swapping."
"I'd like to know why you are hold up in this hole of all places."
"Wounded Aquamarine. Although you seem to be doing well to keep your other side in check at least" He chuckled darkly before hunching down more in his chair. "Your assumption I have a choice of leaving is rather unfounded. Similar to how you cant remove your own gemstone, I cant remove myself from this... realm. I suppose I should explain who and what I am to you" He took what almost looked like a breath as he began his story.
"In one lifetime I was once know as orange sapphire. Hard-working, smart, your standard upstanding citizen to the Diamond Tetradarchy. Sorry I meant Diamond Triarchy.This was of course several millions of years ago from now. To put it simply all new technology we developed always has 'setbacks'. I was one of those setbacks" His tone became darker as he continued.
"I along with my small team was the crew in charge of placing warps on planets. The Warps seemed to be working well on the other planets we had placed them on, so under Yellow Diamond's order we also installed several on this planet. Once they were installed I stepped through one warp, and never came out the other one." Sadness began creeping into his voice.
"The exit warp had been damaged, so with no destination to blast me to the stream created this pocket dimension. blasting me apart and mixing me with the reality of this place in some twisted joke. Having your gem crushed would only equate to one billionth of the pain I felt that day " He said darkly, closing his eyes.
"No one looked for me, or sent help. The stream was repaired,my colleagues,my friends, Scarlet Emerald and Heliodor, left me here." He took on a lighter tone again
"At one stage I lost all sanity, but going insane gets boring so soon I became very,very sane. I found out about my shadow powers and attuned them, focused them to the point they could be my eyes and ears and tried exploring this realm. I soon found out that the creatures could go anywhere the warps were connected. I could even get them to travel off world. So I sent them across planets and from here watched all gem controlled planets change and evolve. My wisps lurking in the shadows, it was like I could live 1000 gems lives at once.Over time my gem began to change from exposure to this realm, Orange Sapphire had died in that warp incident and now, Black Star Sapphire had been created " He stopped almost as if he was reminiscing.
"Then recently she came along"
"Pink Diamond" The name seemed to echo with power. "Her true name was Rose Quartz though and she gave me something I never had before, focus" He paused again.
"I spoke to her within this realm and she told me what she had seen, the beauty, the awe, the wonder of earth and how she fell in love with this place and the creatures on it. She told me she wasn't going to let Homeworld keep doing what they were doing to the planet and soon after she left I realised what I wished to do. Rose and her team of gems destroying the space warps help to make me solidify my goal on this planet. To protect the humans and creatures on this planet like she would want." He stopped there waiting for questions from the other gems around.
Meta's axe dissipated, and she relaxed somewhat. The details of the story bore thought at another time. If this individual was truly from nearly four million years ago (Gems hadn't had the technology to develop new kinds of Gems before then) then he must be truly tortured, stuck here as he was.....
"If your goals are truly as you say...."
The aura of intense heat around her hands dissipated as well.
"Then we have no quarrel. I do not serve homeworld. I have not served it in many, many years. If you are not lying, our previous conflicts have been nothing more than a misunderstanding. I arrived here long before they did, and I came here to hide from their forces."
"I knew Rose Quartz as well, though not for long. And we spoke little.... But she struck me, as she struck many others, as a wonderful individual. One whom I might follow. And that is saying something, for I have followed none in a hundred millenias."
"She is missing. Perhaps you could help us find her, help us fix the situation on Earth, if your intentions are as noble as you say."
Violet was standing on a platform of darkness now. He had formed it so he would have the high ground a few feet above everyone. It was positioned so that he would be on the same angle as Saphires platform. His long monologue about his tragic past bored him greatly. He wished that Aquamarine had just came alone so he could finish the job and not have to spend any more time than he had to in this hole of a void. His feet were attached to the platform by black root like tendrils to keep him from floating off. He did mumble something to the black gem as he went off about his long story. "Huh, your rocking the shadow magic as well I see... We could probably learn a lot from each other."
When the gem finally finished he said impatiently. "Finally! Someone who knows something about what the home worlds doing to this planet!" He did not care if he was interjecting or interrupting Meta. He had very, very low expectations as far as the gem's chances to come with them. "What are they doing? What do the machines in the kindergarden do? Do they even matter?"

Pink Moonstone is currently inactive and is considered eliminated from the thread. Kyanite has Pmed me informing me of his absence (10 days) and requesting that for this rotation he is skipped and Last we heard Malachite does not have access to internet. Leaving the total tally down to 3 (including myself) active members.
So I wanted to pose a vote. Should this thread be placed on Hiatus until at least Kyanite or Malachite returns to boost the numbers back up to a decent amount? Or should we continue with the three current members as it is and just hope for the best and keep moving on at the same pace. (When life gives you lemons, get mad. Or whatever that quote is.)

The gem was pushed away from his hand and was sent floating towards the group. Seconds later, sparks crackled from the gem and it began to glow with life. The sparks sizzled more and more furiously before a what seemed to be a shockwave of electricity explode from the gem. A blinding light replaced the gem, inside it was a humanoid silhouette, the light died out and revealed the gem.
Nothing was changed from his appearance, Malachite still remained the same.There would be another time for him to get a new look, But right now he was concentrated on where he was and where was BBS. From where Malachite was standing or rather floating, he faced the group of gems.

Black Star Sapphire listened politely, but ever so subtly his expression changed, becoming more focused and irritated as he remained quiet as they talked about the Pink Quartz gem.
"She is missing. Perhaps you could help us find her, help us fix the situation on Earth, if -" "What are they doing? What do the machines in the kindergarden do? Do they even matter?"
"Intrusive as always, and believe me my shadows can do much more than yours" He grumbled "Lets see if you can figure it out. That land used to be a jungle, full of life. Then the injectors were placed to create gems, the law of the universe states something cannot be made of nothing. The 'Life' to birth gems came from somewhere, ill let you guess where" Sapphire explained in a irritated and dismissive voice. "Now for Ms Autunite question"
Black Star Sapphire let out another chuckle as he rested his chin on his hand and continued "For me to 'help' you in finding her would imply that, 1 I was not already aware of her location, and 2, that it was at all accessible to any of us in any decent timeframe."
Sapphire covered his eyes with his hand as the blinding light enveloped the area and Malachite finally reformed in front of the group "How good to see you made it out well, shame that you did not think to change your appearance though. No matter" He noted before continuing on his original tangent.
"I would say by the current time Ms Quartz and her team are in custody of Homeworld. They did not believe it was enough to cut the warps off only from this end, so they set down a bomb and warped to Homeworld to finish the job. Naturally with the warps destroyed i no longer had my shadows reaching Homeworld so my analogy about her capture is purely conjectural information i must admit, but the odds of them escaping seem slim to none." He let this revelation think in. Rose Quartz and a small group of her friends had destroyed the warps and had rebelled against Homeworld to fight for the Earth.
((I'm really sorry if this violates posting-order, but this thing has gotten a little stagnated. I'm posting, man.))
She lowers her head and runs a hand through her thick blue hair.
"That's not right. Rose wouldn't get captured. She...."
She drops her hand and sighs, the puff of air that emerges coming out as a pale cloud of frost as soon as it touches the ice-cold, nearly nonexistant atmosphere of warpspace. She's quiet for a moment, considering what she's heard.
"I'd figured the part about the Injectors for myself. This is not my first rodeo, as the humans say...... But...."
She looks out at the stars, eyes reflecting their distant, cold, twinkling light.
"Rose..... Without her...."
Someone else would need to be a leader. Formally. That made Meta chuckle. What was the dammed difference? She'd already been taking care of everything for the past several months. The news made no difference, except in Meta's heart.

((I have given the others long enough and im done with chasing people, for now it looks like this thread is just you and me Meta))
"That's not right. Rose wouldn't get captured. She...."
"Sacrificed herself for the humans.She may not be able to escape, perhaps she is stalling them for that very reason. Unlike many things I do not actually know her fate until someone reconnects the warps." He interjected into Meta statement. It had been so long Sapphire had almost forgotten what shock looked like, it had been so very long since he had ever experienced that, or any emotion for that matter. That was why he was enjoying this chat so much.
"Rose..... Without her...."
"I intend to look after all gems on Earth don't fret" He added before his expression seems to become much sterner "Now i ask that you and your friends surrender now." He asked grimly
"You see seem to think that the gems on Earth are leaderless now but you need to understand. You don't need a leader when your placed in here. Rose's wish was to protect the Humans and I intend to protect them from the greatest threat of all. US." He ended looking over the group as he waited "So what will it be?"

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
