Variscites deep neon green Gem rested upon a red pillow, it had been a long day for this Gem. He was trampled by a corrupted Rhino like Gem, then pretty much knocked himself out of the fight with his grand stunt. Thinking back the jump wasn't his best idea... but with the help of other Crystal Gems the beast was destroyed and left only a corrupted Gem that was sent away to the burning room.
While still inside his Gem it slowly would begin to glow as Variscite had spent an unknown amount of time stuck in his Gem and he was feeling ready to return to his physical form.
Carbonado lounged around the entrance of the temple lazily, a couch he had dragged into the place under him as he remained 'vigilant'. He was on protective duty; had to make sure nothing happened to Variscite's gem while he recovered. The black gem had grown bored with the task swiftly though; finding nothing to waste his time with and unable of napping since he was supposed to remain vigilant. Glancing at the gem, propped up on a comfortable looking pillow, he whined, groaning in some envy. At least Variscite was technically resting. He blinked as the shadows along his arm seemed to deepen, turning his gaze to look at Variscite's shining gem.
"Oh, finally!" he said, thankful. He could go to nap!
As the greenish gem began to float into the air, Its glow now full on bright light as Variscites frame began to form from his Gem. Still floating a foot from the ground his body was restored to its glory, dropping onto the ground landing on his feet facing Carbonado.
Looking up Variscite pulled his hood down looking around the room before stopping on the dark hued Gem. A smile forming on his face reveling most of the cracks in his teeth were gone, "So since we are both here... I take it we stopped that thing?" He asked feeling like he knew the answer.
He folded his hands behind his head as he stretched quickly before grabbing his belly, "Ugh... I really could go for some pie...." he mumbled softly.
Carbonado shook his head cheerily. "Nope! We both died and went to Gem Heaven. Its just like Earth, but without the music or food!" He said, placing both of his hands on his waist, before letting himself drop back onto the couch. "But more seriously, why exactly are you patting your stomach?" he asked, cocking an eyebrow. He knew gems had nothing there; or on any other part of their body, for that matter. Their bodies were mostly just solid projections created by their gems, and did not require for anything such as nourishment.
"Did that fall cause some internal cracking?" he said rounding around his friend and peering on his neck, trying to look closely. He couldn't see anything, but then again, he hadn't noticed before, so he would obviously need to examine more closely if he wanted to find any damage.
Variscite smiled again at the idea of a Gem heaven, it wouldn't be heaven without the sweet treats! Thinking about how to tell him why he was rubbing his belly. It was really just out of habit, after seeing humans do it for so long.
"I don't really know why... I know I'm not hungry because... We can't get hungry. Just feel like eating something, and that's what a human will do when they feel the need to eat." He shrugged still thinking of some kind of pie. Not moving but snapping back from his pie day dream, rubbing the back of his neck.
His Gem felt a little rough but hopefully a crack didn't form, if anything else were to try and damage his Gem it wouldn't be able to hold up for much longer.
Tourmaline walked into the room. "Ah Variscite nice to see you are ok", he said. Tourmaline walked past Variscite and noticed him rubbing his stomach. Hes obviously spent a lot of times with humans he thought. "Variscite if you want, ill go join you in finding some food id like to eat some donuts...Especially Chocolate with *Eyes Shine* Sprinkles", he started day dreaming about the donuts. He snapped out of it. "Carbonado if you are going to complain about him eating when he doesn't need to than you shouldn't be sleeping after all we dont sleep," he said. "Hey Variscite if you want we can take my car I've been working on one for a couple of weeks and I'd like to test drive it!" He said eagerly.
Cocked an eyebrow at the green gem. "I don't remember complaining about anything." He pointed out, yawning lazily as he moved towards the exit of the temple. "Let's go get you that gross stuff, then." he said, his hands on his pockets as he glanced at Variscite through half lidded eyes. It was an entirely useless crusade they were about to set forth on, but it was better than doing nothing, he guessed. Humans would definitely be glancing at them, though; Neither him nor green guy meshed well with the background, unlike Variscite himself.
'Ah well, let them stare, I guess." he thought lazily as he yawned once again. It was fun to watch the humans try to figure out how they had colored their skin to look so natural, and what kind of body surgeon they had visited to implant themselves such large gems.
Variscite jumped slightly at his name being spoken by a voice other then Carbonado, "Hmm?" He turned to see Tourmaline had joined the group, "Oh! Tour, scared me for a moment." He said with a grin as he returned both hands back behind his head.
Variscite couldn't help but continue to grin at the idea of some doughnuts, "That didn't sound half bad! I feel like with YOU two we might get some strange looks driving in with a car... more then normal." The tan skinned Gem said looking down at the doughnut shop, "Gonna have to find something Carbonado will want to eat though..." he mumbled to himself.
The black gem snorted at his friend, a smirk on his half lidded expression. "Don't bother man; I have no problem with human's food taste. They all feel the same inside me, though; can't appreciate it, sadly." he said, yawning before turning his gaze to the two gems once more. "You guys ready to go, though? If I stay unmoving I just go to sleep, let's go already."
Sooner they got the food on their nonexistent stomachs they could get back to the temple and sleep off the rest of the day. He wondered what he would get to dream about this time. Though maybe he would forgo sleeping to try and catch up with Amber. It had been a while since they had spoken to one another.

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

*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
