Luna walked along the beach chatting with her new gem acquaintances,chatting...well more writing in her case,and trying to answer the question he asks. One such question puzzled her greatly though,how she was able to write in the first place... She never recalled teaching herself to and she had a feeling that this wasn't normal. "I'm not sure,I just find I could and its the easiest way to communicate." She says but it was clear that it was starting to bother her,she used this simple way to communicate all the time yet she never thought about how she had learnt to do this,how she learnt the words of this world.
But she pushed this out of her mind and decided to ask him a few questions of her own "So...have you always lived in this area?"
Indy nodded his head slowly as Luna answered his question. He furrowed his brow after she was done talking, still a bit curious about her past. He decided once again that he wouldn't pry and turned his attention to her question. The blue gem smiled slightly as he began his reply, "Nope! Believe it or not, I'm actually from the gem homeworld. I came to Earth quite awhile ago and I've learned to love the planet." Indy stopped as they reached the entrance to the temple and scratched the back of his head. He turned towards Luna and moved his arm in a sweeping motion, gesturing her in. "After you." After waiting for her to enter, he then followed her, taking a step onto one of the hands that made up the mouth of the cave-like structure.
Variscite came tumbling out of the portal type door in the opening of the Temple, jumping up to his feet quickly turning back to see the doorway closing and hiding what looked like a pitch black room. "Every t-time! Stupid mind reading room..." he trailed off mumbling to himself.
The Temple was always a problem for Gems like Variscite, being mentally... off, Its hard for him to control what he is thinking. Turning around just in time to see two more Gems about to enter the Temple, "Hey! Don't mind me..." he said rubbing the back of his head with an eyes shut smile. He didn't want to seem rude and stop them from entering the Temple, So he stepped to the side to let them pass him without issue.
Luna had stared at the giant statue that made up this "Temple" It was beautiful but really frightening at them same time. She looked back at the entrance if this new gem. Being outnumbered by strangers along with being in a strange new place mad her nervous and it easily showed. She lost control of her glowing causing it make her glow extremely bright. She was able it fix it quickly but still it had been very noticeable in the darkened entryway. "S-Sorry" She wrote slowly her writing not as neat as it had been,another clue at how nervous she had been.
She walked closer to the two trying to get over her nervousness,but if anything it grew starting to crush her mind slowly,but still she tried to push past it and gave a timid slow smile.
Indy waved away the apology with his hand absentmindedly as he followed Luna to the entrance of the temple. He gave a slight nod in greetings to Variscite as he passed him but then quickly brought his attention to the task at hand. He stopped himself directly next to the crystal door. "Alrighty then! This here is the door that'll solve all your problems!" He smiled to let her know he pulling her leg. "But in all seriousness, this door right here will instantly create a room just for you if it senses that you are looking for a home. It'll also let you access other rooms in the temple, such as the burning room or whatnot." The blue gem waved his hand over the door with some flair, looking almost like a game show host showing off a prize.
Variscite realized he had seen the one Gem before, she had helped him take on that big corrupt Rhino Gem. She didn't seem to remember him right away but they really only saw each other for a short amount of time before Variscite ended up back in his Gem at the end of the battle. He shakes his head trying to avoid the nasty thoughts, "No need to be s-sorry, enjoy your trip in the Temple." He said with a wave and a smile before starting to walk away as Indy was giving his speech.
Once a few steps out of the opening to the Temple he stopped getting the feeling that Luna was on edge, he sits down out of view and starts to hum softly. As he mummed threw his song his gem began to glow brighter and his soothing pressure began to flow from his gem and would push on the minds of any Gem near by. It was easy to ignore the effect if wanted but if accepted would bring a calming rush to the mind and body of a Gem.
Luna felt herself suddenly start to calm slowly,as she listened to Indy explain the seemingly magical door studying the small Gems that covered the center of the door,perhaps to let them know who was using the door or maybe a way to active the door itself? Was it able to change size to let a larger then normal Gem through? What about the rooms itself? how would it create the perfect room for each gem,did it have limits and could it be ever changing if so desired by the gem that owns the room?
She asked all these questions to him,her curiosity bubbling up more and more with each one now that she had calmed down. She always loved finding things out if it was even a little bit related to gems and gem culture.
Indy raised his hands in mock surrender as he read the onslaught of questions. "Whoa! Hey listen, let's just say that I don't know the answers to most of those questions, but I DO know that you should give it a go and find out for yourself." The blue gem stepped to the side, allowing for Luna to get closer to the magical door that held the answers to all her questions. "I'm actually kinda curious myself, to see how it'll react, so go ahead, step right up and... errr. concentrate? I suppose?" Indy furrowed his brow as he began to ponder the questions had asked. She did bring up some important points that had never unsettled him before. He felt his thoughts and worries go away as a wave of calm relief washed over him.
He turned back around the Corner to see the two Gems talking and both seemed calmer, he let his energy die down as his Gem stopped glowing. He thought about going over to maybe join the Gems since it seemed like Lunas first time here at the Temple. Variscite thought back to the first time he was ever in the Temple... his own room almost killed him!
"Ugh.... I need a bite to eat..." He mumbled trying to shake the bad memories from his mind. He had not had a peaceful night since he came to the Temple, "Have fun you t-two!" He called out giving the two a friendly wave goodbye as he began to wonder off, away from the Temple and towards the town hoping a shop was still open so he could enjoy a meal. Something few Gems did and he felt more should.

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.
