Schorl landed his aircraft nearby the temple on the beach. Sand was kicked into the air as the thrusters got closer and closer towards the ground. Finally landing softly on the beach, Schorl exited the cockpit of the ship and made his way into the temple.
"I have the whole map of the temple downloaded to your watch."
He looked down at it and looked at the many rooms of the place and found the burning room. Schorl entered the temple and walked towards the room. He looked at the many rooms as he passed by the doors. Seeing that each one was fitted with 5 gems of different colors.
"Humph, that must be the crystal gems rooms, the ones that disappeared"
Schorl finally made it to the burning room, the room was filled with different items! Weapons, gems, artifacts covered the ceiling down. He found the two gems, Meta and Magnetite. Schorl managed to grab them as they were in arms reach. Waiting for the arrival of the other gems.

Obsidian stepped off of the warp pad in front of the crystal temple. He quickly approached the temple door and opened it with the power of his gem. The room he entered into was one he had claimed beneath the burning room. One look at the room made it apparent why he had chosen this room. It mostly consisted of a magma pool with magma pillars that led up to a ceiling that was also a magma pool that like many other things in the temple defied conventional physics by hovering about 12 feet above the floor. The burning room, where the meeting was to take place was directly above this one.
Obsidian turned to Puff. "I will handle this mostly on my own. You will hide in my armor until I say 'Slag it'."
Puff nodded and then seeped into Obsidian's armor until he was completely hidden inside. Obsidian then stepped into the magma pool. He used one of the magma pillars as an elevator of sorts to travel upward. He emerged in the burning room by rising from the burning pit. As he rose, he saw that Schorl was the only one there at the moment and he was holding Meta's gem and another gem. With Schorl being the only one there, Obsidian had half a mind to take Meta's gem from him.
Schorl continued to wait until he heard footsteps above him, "must be another gem approaching" He said to himself. He popped the gems bubbles and encased them in the two holsters on his chest. An aura-like field protected them from unwanted hands.
Suddenly, Schorl saw a gem emerge from the floor below him to he one he was on.
"Never seen this guy before..."
"Must be here for the court session" He said as the gem came closer. If they attempted to take Meta it would be unsuccessful and blocked by the aura-like shield.
(I'm sorry but I just realized that the reason nobody was replying, everyone's in their gems! After your post, and maybe after mine, let's wait for njrk to reply so we can get a posting order going on.
((Two things before i begin, first yo Schorl, signatures rules bro, secondly and this is more minor, the gem door is covered in gems around the star aswell, as it states in the section information))
With a small hiss the door behind the gems opened back up as a somewhat thin and colourful figure fell down face first onto the ground, his form glitching out as he smacked into the ground. Recovering quickly he stood back up looking around at the room that he had managed to get into "This isn't the training room?" He noted as he noticed the fiery interior and the bubbles floating around
"Dammit i asked for the training room not the bubble room, stupid door" It was about this time that Alex finally noticed the other gems in the room blushing out of embarrassment.
"Ohh,umm, its the do-" Alex stopped as he noticed the grey gem, or particularly what was on his chest. His eyes widened and a cold wind seemed to cleave through the room "You have one second to tell me what your doing with Ms Autunite's stone before i do something crazy" Alex growled. His hands clenched with orbs of air around them and powerful winds dancing around his body ready to strike.
As Schorl waited for the other gems to arrive, he looked over to the one already here. Schorl admired his armor and the details of it. "Nice armor, I'll explain why were here once-" suddenly the door opened and the sound of someone falling was heard
"This isn't the training room?"
Schorl quickly turned around to see a new gem entered the room. This one was one that Schorl has never seen before, pretty unique.
"Dammit i asked for the training room not the bubble room, stupid door"
The new gem noticed Schorl and Obsidian and was seen to be embarrassed.
"Ohh,umm, its the do-" Schorl then noticed they stopped and eyeballed Meta's gem on his chest.
"You have one second to tell me what your doing with Ms Autunite's stone before i do something crazy"
Schorl stared back with a blank,annoyed stare at them. "She was severely wounded and battle and it will be awhile before she can come out." He explained and sighed
"Well, I guess since you two are here, I will explain what happened. Meta managed to tick off a corrupted gem and they transformed into a gargantuan sized moth, we weren't as clever as it was and the moth uh...ripped her to shreds pretty much. But we contained the corrupted gem after they retreated " Schorl said pointing to the gem beside Meta's.
"But...Meta is a wanted criminal for killing thousands of gems and betraying the gem forces."
"I just got out of a hard fight with aquamarine who was trying to kill her" Schorl's shoulder and chest was seen to have bullet wounds in them, and exiting out the back. "But every gem deserves a testimony so I fought back"
Obsidian felt anger when he learned that Meta's body had been destroyed by a giant corrupted moth. He should have been there to help her, if he had, she wouldn't be in this predicament. Not one to dwell on "what ifs", he chose to deal with the here and now. Obsidian was already aware of her criminal past, because she had divulged that information when they first met. She had not committed crimes on Earth that Obsidian was aware of, in fact Obsidian had seen quite the opposite from her.
Obsidian took a step toward Schorl. "So, you're going to have an impromptu trial on an alien world for crimes she committed on Homeworld? She should answer for her crimes on Homeworld in a Homeworld court." Obsidian said to him. Though Obsidian wasn't even sure he even wanted her to stand trial at all. What Obsidian did know, however, is there was no way he would be allowing this self proclaimed judge to leave this room with Meta's gem.
Schorl turned to Obsidian with an agitated and annoyed look on his face. "8,600..." "She killed 8,600 gems. Now. I don't know about you but i think that if i was Homeworld, I. would be pretty ticked off that someone destroyed my ship and soldiers. What do you think they would do to her on Homeworld? She's not gonna have a chance in court since the odds are stacked against her. They're going to put in torture row, and I've seen what they do to gems in there."
He opened his arms and shrugged "But if that's what you want, then be my guest. Or. we could simply decide her fate right here and right now. Who do you think should walk out those doors, Because i don't know about you, but Meta deserves a chance."
Schorl believed that Meta had a reason for the destruction and betrayal of gemkind. No one simply goes rogue for a reason. Schorl has seen the type of shit that Homeworld has been doing over the years but...can't bring himself to leave the G.S.T.F.
Obsidian grunted slightly at Schorl's statement. Naturally, Obsidian hadn't thought much about would actually happen to her if she had a "proper" trial. Perhaps this was her best chance. Although this didn't change the fact that Obsidian had no intention of letting anything happen to Meta, regardless of the outcome of the trial. Schorl didn't seem to be hell bent on judging her harshly, in fact, he seemed to want to have a favorable outcome for her, this eased Obsidian enough to decide to go along with the trial, rather than jabbing his sword into the gem's face and taking Meta's gem from him.
"I, Mahogany Obsidian, sole member of The Black Sword Special Unit, shall testify on Meta Autunite's behalf. Obsidian said, standing at attention and giving a salute that Schorl would recognize.
"I, Mahogany Obsidian, sole member of The Black Sword Special Unit, shall testify on Meta Autunite's behalf. "
School responded to this with a firm nod of his head, recognizing the salute from his unit. "Let's make more proper" he said as he lifted his right hand up and clenched it into a fist. Which cause five rocks to be taken from surrounding walls.
He clenched his hand harder, the rocks were shaped and morphed into A judge stand, and two tables for the gems to sit at. "As the Field Marshal of the Gem Special Task Force and S.O.S. I let his court session begin."
Schorl looked over to Alexandrite "Do you swear under oath of the council and court to tell the truth and only that?"
"This is psychotic" Alex mumbled "And entirely pointless"
"Do you swear under oath of the council and court to tell the truth and only that?"
"I don't get much choice if i want to save my friend. Alexandrite accepts under the pretence that the judge removes the gem from his specific possession and instead moves it to neutral space, you must understand I have little more than your word on the reliability of who you are, I would feel safer knowing that we are all equally not in control of Ms Autinite stone" He replied formally
Alex did not know much about the other gems but at the current moment his could not be fully sure if the armoured gem was truly on his side and as such attacking the gem currently in possession of Meta would be unwise and may cause damage to the room and more importantly to her. Furthermore he was still not able to summon his weapon which would put him at a disadvantage.
"I also stand as a defendant of Ms Autunite in this current court, like this other gem" He also added on making sure that all details were clarified. He seemed to slip into this amount of formality and wit unnaturally quick, perhaps he had been some sort of lawyer before he lost his memory.
"This is the proper way to settle things." He rested his elbows and put his hands together on the table.
"I don't get much choice if i want to save my friend. Alexandrite accepts under the pretence that the judge removes the gem from his specific possession and instead moves it to neutral space, you must understand I have little more than your word on the reliability of who you are, I would feel safer knowing that we are all equally not in control of Ms Autinite stone."
Schorl nodded his head. "I understand your request" He pulled the gem from the aura-field and placed her in the middle between them, in case she managed to regenerate during the trials and returned back to his chair. "I will release Magnetite from her gem, so that she may have a word in the court." He released her also, but far from Meta, due to the recent assault on her.
"The trial of Meta Autinite has officially begun! Meta Autinite is being charged with First Degree Mass Murder and Destruction Of Gem Technology, and Finally the Betrayal Against Gem Kind"
"Obsidian, Approach forward and give your testimony; On why Meta's charges should be dropped."

Obsidian was no stranger to a trial, he had even had to stand before a tribunal defend his own deeds. He stepped forward and saluted Schorl.
"This will be the testimony of Obsidian on behalf of Meta. The testimony shall be on record and be true to the best of my knowledge." Obsidian ended the salute now and began his testimony.
"My first statement will be that Meta's actions that resulted in the destruction of a gem vessel and the deaths of those on it was not an inherently malicious act. She feels that our race has no right to conquer and destroy other civilizations at our whim. In fact I myself can attest to some of the actions of our race, as I have been instrumental in some of them. Her actions sprang from a desire to protect other life in the universe. To support this, my next statement will be that she has dedicated herself to the protection of both native humans and gems on this planet. She has fought corrupted gems that pose a threat to all life, human and gem. Third, her actions to protect humans have helped to perpetuate the human's tolerance of our presence. Her absence would be a tremendous blow to the peaceful coexistence of humans and gems. Should this coexistence end, it could result in the deaths of gems on Earth. That is all. I would ask that if you do still find her guilty, you only punish her with exile on this planet." Obsidian now waited for a response from Schorl.
Alex crossed his arms behind his back as he started pacing around the room "May I add onto my comrades statement that if Ms Autinite is to be held for her crimes against gem kind then equal justice be served to all of us within this room aswell." He argued as he continued moving around
"All of us within this room could also be trialled for unlawful containment,assault and damage to both humans and gem structures alike. Fighting our fellow gems, regardless of form can also be considered treason aswell. We were never give the authority to contain these gems" He said indicating to all the floating bubbled gems around them
"Ms Autinite has more than made up for her crimes though her compassion and emotional pain, she" Alex trailed off hesitating slightly "not only saved countless lives by destroying that ship but she still continues that trend today.I am living proof of that." Alex turned around displaying his heavily damaged gemstone on his back "This is what my heart stone looked like when I crashed to earth, despite the fact I attacked her Meta still rushed me to the fountain and saved my life, even now she is doing everything she can to try and fix the stone on my back and train me to protect others" He turned back around to face the other "If that strength of character doesn't warrant a amnesty for Ms Autinite past transgressions well then, ill be proud to be banished right along side her" Alex finished before taking a step backwards "That is all for now your honour"
(I was hoping Magnetite would regenerate to her gem first;Since you know, Meta got ripped in half while Magnetite collapsed from wounds and fatigue)
Schorl sat back in his seat, listening intently to their testimonies for her.
"Ms Autinite has more than made up for her crimes though her compassion and emotional pain, she...not only saved countless lives by destroying that ship but she still continues that trend today.I am living proof of that." He watched as Alexandrite turned around to show his damaged gem that was badly damaged, almost beyond repair. "This is what my heart stone looked like when I crashed to earth, despite the fact I attacked her Meta still rushed me to the fountain and saved my life, even now she is doing everything she can to try and fix the stone on my back and train me to protect others"
"Wow, from the looks of it, the good thing's she's done outnumbers the charges. Do you really plan on going against this?"
"Of course not, I just need to hear all the voices first" Schorl muttered into his ear-piece.
"If that strength of character doesn't warrant a amnesty for Ms Autinite past transgressions well then, ill be proud to be banished right along side her""That is all for now your honor"
Schorl nodded his head once more, a hand on his chin stroking the small beard of his. "Thank you Obsidian and Alexandrite. There's just one witness who has to testify." "And that's Magnetite" He said with a tilt of his head to the direction of her gem
(Waitin on you Meta, Let's try not to have Meta come in though yet. But instead Magnetite)
It would be six long, quiet, rather tedious hours before Magnetite's Gem would stir. When it did, there was a flickering glow, and the stone rose off the ground with a crackle of electricity and a smell of ozone..... It hung in the air for a moment, glowing brighter, then the light expanded into somethign monstrous..... And then a humanoid shape...... Magnetite's form re-appeared, coalescing from the figure. The differences in her appearance were minor, but readily apparant.
Her bangs hung over the eyes that had been blown out by Meta, blocking it from view. Additionally, she wore a fingerless glove over the hand that had been damaged in the fight, and her leather jacket was now cropped so that it exposed her midriff. She blinked and looked around, form tensing.
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
