Carbonado stared at the fountain, a critical look in his eyes. His gaze moved from the slightly pink tinted water to the statue of the Pink Lady. Rose Quartz's Fountain, he had heard someone call it back at the Crystal Temple. Apparently, the water in it held healing capabilities, to the point that if a Corrupted Gem wished to, it could make their corruption disappear. When he thought about it, it was the perfect place to put all the fragments of the Labra guy who had been killed by the purple gem. Unfortunately, he didn't have all the fragments; some of them appeared to be missing, and he suspected the purple gem had them. How annoying.
He walked towards the fountain, his form slowly shining as he shifted from his jeans to a pair knee high shorts; he had grown tired of soaking the damn jeans only for them to stick to his skin uncomfortably. He leaped over the edge of the Fountain, sitting down on it and letting his feet in the cool water, kicking them gently. He whistled.
"Wow." Was all he said as he felt a pleasant feeling wash all over his legs. He probably wouldn't have even noticed his legs could use some rest if it weren't for the water.

Momo popped her head out of some the dirt that was nearby a stone path to the fountain, she glared at it as she rubbed her head from previously trying to resurface, but failing from bumping her head on it. She pulled herself out of her tunnel, completely covered in soil, she looked along the path and notice there were other paths leading to it, 'I must of tunneled the wrong way,' she thought to herself still rubbing her head that was sore, walking along the path as she looked around trying to gather where she was. "This is place is..different." she muttered to herself, the sound of someone whistling made her ears ache as she covered them, squinting at the direction of the fountain she could see not too far now, "UGH! Your pitch is wayyy off!!" she yelled in slight frustration as she proceeded to walk towards the fountain.
Carbonado lazily looked over his shoulder as a feminine voice whined. Come on, his whistling couldn't be that bad! And even if it was, no need to call out people like that, it was rude! Still, he held back on it for the sake of the other gem, instead pursing his lip. As he had imagined, it was a female gem. Much smaller than him when standing up, he noted. That was a change of pace; his stature was nothing special, so he usually stood bellow all the six feet tall gems that dotted the Earth.
"Yo. Welcome to Rose Quartz's Fountain." he said simply as he turned his gaze back on the water, leaning on his palms. "I stopped whistling; so please chill out and stop shouting." He said bluntly.
"So what brings ya here, anyways?" he asked curiously; had she also heard from someone else about the fountain's properties? She didn't look injured; maybe she was just here to clean up all the dirt off herself?

Momo uncovered her ears as the whistling stopped, smiling some as her question on where she was, was answered. She looked around the fountains decorations as she entered into the area stopping within distance of the gem at the fountain, 'Rose Quartz wasn't that..' she thought to herself for a moment, she remembered only hearing little things about that gem, but didn't know much about her, she gazed around at the fountain. 'Didn't homeworld deem her a traitor or something?' she thought to herself, then looking at the gem who seemed to be enjoying himself in the fountains water, she tilted her head in confusion as some of the dirt fell off her hair. "Um, more of just exploring..what can you tell me about this place?" she asked in return, her attention was caught on the water, how it was coming from Roses eyes, she stared at it with even more confusion as her mind raced with questions.
Carbonado gazed up, his lips pressing together as he tried to remember everything he knew about the Fountain, "Well, let's see... I was told it was made by a Pink Lady named Rose Quartz; you know, the insurrectionist against Homeworld? She sent a message the other day across all Communication hubs? She seemed pretty cool for someone under attack by the Homeworld." he didn't know how he would have been during such a situation, but he could safely say he would have likely not maintained his cool nearly as well as she did.
"And well, the water here has healing properties; its also pretty cool, too. Feels nice." he noted, kicking his feet gently into it. "Feel free to take a dip; I hear she was a pretty kind lady, I'm sure she won't mind." Supposing she even heard of it; though she might mind, considering the green gem was covered in mud and dirt. Cocking an eyebrow, the Black gem felt the need to ask, "Where you fighting or training? You are covered in mud."

Momo snapped to reality as she listened to the other gem, but then it confused her, she hadn't seen the message he was talking about. 'That makes sense then, Rose Quartz must be the leader of the Crystal gems.' she thought to herself looking at the face of the statue, squinting at it as she thought more on this, that must be why homeworld gems aren't welcome on earth if they are trying to attack her and Earth, she started to piece what she was finding out somewhat, then looking back at the gem as he talked about the fountain, "Erm, I'm not sure." she stared at the fountain water, she had no reason to really take a dip in it, but it did weird her out a bit that the water was flowing out of her eyes like tears. She looked down at herself, looking at all the dirt on her and as she smiled widely, "I like mud, it feels nice..but no, neither. I was..tunneling." she said with a shrug, walking closer to the fountain as she looked at it, leaving a trail of dirty foot prints, "Soo, were you hurt or something?" she asked more of wanting to know if the fountain really worked.
The black gem shook his head, lazily propping it on his shoulder as his eyes shifted to look at the green gem. "Me? Nah nah, I just came here out of curiosity; the water feels nice on my legs too. Seems like it also helps recovering from exhaustion and the like." Not that he had been tired or anything, but considering he used his legs for walking, running, and fighting in general, it was probably safe to say that they had been slightly overworked; he had grown used to it and hadn't even realized they were uncomfortable until he had actually taken a dip in.
He looked at her curiously, "Excavating? What's that like?" He knew what excavating was for regular people; but it was probably safe to say that it was entirely different for her; Was it like swimming on underground?

Momo looked down at her arms then analyzed to her hands, she had been tunneling for awhile, but it felt the same as a person running in water. Sometimes it can be exhausting, but exhilarating to feel the dirt move through her hands. She looked at the black gem with a smile, trying not to be snarky about the question, "Well,when I dig, it makes me feel free and safe from anything..but I'm not sure how I could describe to you how I do it though." She said sincerely, giggling as she rubbed some of the dirt off her hands, she licked her fingers as she was closer to the fountain looking down at the water. She looked at her hand that she had started to lick off the dirt, she hesitated for a moment before putting her finger in the water to test it. Her eyes widened as how the black gem had been right, it did feel nice, she looked at him and smiled as she reached both her hands in the water playing with it with the rest of the dirt being washed off her hands. "I gotta say, putting your hands in some ladies teary looking fountain water, isn't so bad." she said with a smile, then looking back at the water again.
Carbonado hummed his agreement as she spoke, pondering about her answer as she dipped her hand into the water. Free and safe? Then he guessed it wasn't much like swimming; Swimming was enjoyable in the sense of cool (or hot, depending) water against your skin, and the feeling of Zero gravity around you, being able to 'float'. Carbonado still couldn't remember how to float, unfortunately, so his swims nowadays tended to be him sinking to the ocean floor the moment he tried to chill out on the water. Nothing too bothersome, but since he wanted to just float, he was trying to recall the lessons he recieved from Amber. He would have asked her, but it was honestly embarrassing to admit he forgot how to float on water.
"They told me that Rose Quartz tears also had healing properties; obviously, whoever did this rendition wanted to stay as close to the source material as possible."

Momo stared at the water as she laid on her stomach on the edge of the fountain, reaching her dirty arms into the water as she laid her chin on the stone as she played around with the water, enjoying the nice feeling it gave her arms. "Well, they did a great job I suppose, but she looks happy even though she's crying." she said as she gazed up at the statue, "I've seen humans look sad when they cry, and when gems were upset they'd cry, or in pain..but never smile and cry." She looked at the water then at the black gem with a smirk, he didn't seem short tempered at all, but calm. Was it the area of the fountain that made them feel calm? She looked back at the water, splashing it around more, then an idea popped in her head as she grinned, cupping her hand. She immediately splashed some water playfully at the black gem as she began to giggle.
Carbonado sputtered as water splashed onto him, glancing at his side to look at the giggling gem, his eyes narrowing. "Indeed you realize." he started, his hand stealthely dipping into the fountain, "that this," he gestured towards his wet self. "means war!" he said as he threw his wet hand their way, sending a water splashing into her. Being the ever so tactical minded warrior that he was, he immediately decided to continue with the onslaught, both arms dipping into the water and starting to throw large amounts of water her way.
"This war is not one you can win!" he boasted as he put both palms together, before slamming them down on the water, creating a massive splash that left him soaked... but at least it fell on her too, right?

Momo began to laugh hysterically, holding one of her hands up to shield her eyes from the water, already getting drenched from the splashing water blows. Her eyes lit up with excitement at the proclaiming of a water battle the mud and water mixing together as it drizzled down her face. As she stood up to get an even more massive splash of water on to her cleaning off most of the mudd off of her, she squinted at him, grinning. "This war has only just begun!" she said as she immediately jumping into the fountain, cupping her hands together as she swung it into the water, shoveling the water up towards him. Finally, meeting another gem that made games out of things, her excitement was overwhelming, she continued to shovel up the water to splash it at him. It was the first real fun she had since she had been on earth and it was only getting started, "Come on! That can't be all you got!" she taunted him with a wide grin on her face.
Carbonado sputtered once again, his hands flying to his face to try and block the onslaught of water, waving wildly as he tried to inch away- And fell into the water. He surged like a majestic klutz, his arms waving madly as he tried to shower the smaller gem in not so vast amounts of water. "I've only just begun, fool!" he cackled as he jumped away, his leg rearing back... before kicking at the water at her, sending a rather large amount of it towards her. "Fear my might!" he tried to shout, most of it coming out stifled by the inelegant snort that continued to escape him.
"Ready to give up? I wouldn't blame ya! I rock at this!"

Momo laughed as her splashes came to a short stop as she watched the black gem fall back into the water, immediately getting some of the water in her mouth as she spat it out, coughing somewhat at the odd taste. Her eyes widened at the vast amounts of water that continued at her that followed with a large splash onto her knocking her onto her down. She spit out the rest of the water following with a short giggle as she looked at him, then looking up at the statue with a wicked grin as an idea popped in her head. She pushed herself up as she slicked her bangs back from her eyes as she looked back at him. "Give up? Are you kidding me? I've fought more geezers with better splashes than you!" She boasted as she immediately grabbed onto the bottom stone of the statue, climbing up onto one of the edges that the water was pouring off of as she held onto the bottom of Rose's statue looking down at him with that grin on her face. "But if you gave up, I wouldn't think less of ya." She said as she reached up to the statues hand as she swung herself upward to fall down into the water, causing the water beneath her to roar up around her with a large amount of water to splash everywhere as she sat on the floor of the fountain with her body submerged, grinning still.
The black gem gasped as the green one leaped off the statue, yelping loudly as she slammed like a canon ball on the water. A large splash was whipped up immediately, slamming into him from above. It was a good thing neither of them actually needed to breath or anything, since their little game was turning from a small water fight into Naval Warfare. And warfare it was indeed. The Black gem resurfaced out of the water with a gasp, turning his gaze to the other girl with a giant smile on his face.
"Fool!" He thundered, cackling as he fell onto a hilariously Hammy persona. "You can not match my power!" He said as he thrusted his palm into the water, pointing it in her direction. The palm vibrated before unleashing a shockwave under the water.
The results were glorious.
A massive splash sailed towards the other girl as he cackled.
Melody: as usual, just waiting for posts

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" is being treated like a virus due to lack of info about it on the show.
*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
