Variscite was sitting on the platform that leads to the portal door... thing. Having just gotten back from an "Adventure" in the desert, he was still shaking the sand out of his chair and hoodie. Pulling off the hoodie revealing a purple tank top under and showing off his "Gun" if you wanna call his slender arms that. He places the hoodie onto the ground next to him as he looked around not seening anyone near by, he knew that humans really didn't ever wonder over this far but was hoping maybe a Gem was around.
He leaned back onto the ground, arms behind his head as he rested with his eyes shut as he hummed a tune, "Your minds moving... like marbles on glass..." between humming and tapping his food to the beat in his head. Music always made him feel calm. He often would wonder why they didnt have anything like this on Homeworld, though he has never been there he has heard stories from friends like Carbonado, or Momo really showed the lack of interesting things they had on Homeworld.
Sighing and humming again hoping something would happen to keep him entertained.
Hemimorphite knew that she would be running into a few gems more than once, especially so after the soirée at the desert. Although she came and left, she still had a gut feeling that she would at least have a small chat with one or two of them.
She surprisingly found herself at the temple, well, it wasn't quite surprising, more so odd if anything since she never really wandered about the area in the first place. The blue gem was drawn to the sound of humming, a masculine voice of sorts.
Silently, she made her way over and sat down beside the tan gem, keeping silent for awhile so she wouldn't disturb his peaceful relaxation. "Hello again." Hemimorphite finally chimed as she placed her hands on her knees. "We meet for the fourth time I presume?" The blue gem chuckled lightly. "Was I interrupting something?"
The tan Gem was still in his own little world, he was unaware that Hemimorphite had sat down next to him, or even walked up near him at all! He continued to hum his little tune while throwing in a few words that he seemed to have no problem saying, not a single studder!
"Does it feel like a trial? Does it trouble your mind the way you trouble mine..."
He was snapped out of his day dream and quickly jumped up to the sound of a female voice, "Huh?!" He looked over to see the blue Gem sitting next to him, "O-oh! Its you, Hi." He said with a smile as he looked at her before looking forward again, "Interrupting? No not at all! I was h-hoping you wo- er! Someone would stop by." He said smiling while rubbing the back of his neck running his fingers over his Gem. He looks behind them at the Temple before looking back at Hemimorphite, "So have you been here b-before?" He asks still holding the grin on his face as he waited for a reply.
"Your voice is very calming and comforting, I enjoy it." She commented, looking over at Variscite to give him a small smile. "Ah, the temple." She peered over her shoulder, then back to him, slowly leaning forward so she was able to rest her chin on her knees. "I'm afraid I have not, but you seem very well rounded with the place." The blue gem added.
Hemimorphite tilted her head to the side. "Aha, I'm still a bit new to this place in particular." She slowly closed her eyes to think for a moment before sitting back up. "I'm not too interesting am I? Hah..." The gem stood back onto her feet and stretched. "Sorry, I see myself apologizing to you a lot, isn't that strange?"
Musgravite watched the exchange and sighed, it had been awhile since she had interacted with another gem.She brought her knees up to her chest and closed her eyes for a second.... she began to think back to when she was a young gem and how she had so many comrades, even though she was not shy she didn't want to barge in on there conversation so she hung back and watched quietly.Her long purple hair blew into her face as she sat, she was far enough away so that is she used her metal bending power they would not know so she made to thin strands of steel shoot from the ground, she danced and weaved into shapes and figures.She did this for a bit until she felt the sand mound she had been sitting on shake and crumble as she tumbles down until she landed in a heap right behind the two gems that were talking, and her cheeks turned blood red.
Variscite smiled as she spoke of his voice, making him blush slightly as he rubbed his chin with a smile, when she asked about the Temple he thought for a moment, he was still semi-new to the Temple himself but he knew how it worked and knew some of the rooms that it had to offer. Though he tries to avoid his own room mostly because he has a hard time keeping a simple thought... simple! His room always warps and he ends up giving himself a panic attack of sorts and dashing from his room.
"I kinda know my way around, I was made here so..." He thought back to when he was younger, he spent hundreds of years alone without even speaking to humans. When she changed the subject to how she thought she wasn't interesting he laughed alittle, "I um... find you very interesting... your always so... cool about things..." He said having a hard time trying to describe what he thinks of her, "Also pretty..." He mumbled very softly under his breath.
Before he could respond to her about how she says sorry so much another Gem landed behind them with some dirt trailing her from her fall, Variscite turned and quickly tried to help her up, "A-are you ok?" He asked taking a step away from her once she was standing. He looked back to Hemimorphite and smiled, "Strange things happen all t-the time... see?" He said giving her a slight nudge with his arm and a goof ball smile before returning his gaze to the new Gem that had joined them.
She picked up an interesting fact about him; He wasn't a homeworld gem. Hemimorphite hadn't met one before up until now, and it peaked her curiosity a tad. "Hahaha." The blue gem placed a hand on her cheek as he described her(or at least attempted to). "That is very sweet of you to think that." Luckily, Hemimorphite was barely able to pick up his last phrase, and was actually quite flattered with his opinion of her.
As the new face made her appearance, Hemimorphite, although worried for the people gem's wellbeing, couldn't help but smile at her sudden entrance. "Well that's a new way to say hello, are you hurt?" She might as well repeat Variscite's question, just to be sure she wasn't actually harmed during her small slide down the mound of sand.
"I've been seeing many good outcomes from the strange things so far." Hemimorphite cooed. She crossed her arms lightly and glanced over at the tan gem who gave her a light nudge, an odd gesture, but it was a friendly one nonetheless. The gem didn't know what to do in return, so she did a light nudge back, assuming it as some form of a hand shake. Although she had traveled far, she didn't have a lot of interaction with modern society in Human Culture.
Musgravite blinked as she looked down at the two gems, she stood slowly and blinked." I-Im ok sorry to burst in like this..." she said as she pushed a purple strand behind her ear, she dusted her self off and looked back at the other two gems as they stood there looking at her.She hadn't interacted with any other gems in a loooong time, she realized her clothes may be a little odd due to the fact she hadn't kept up with gem or human fashions. " Im Musgravite by the way, i patrol earth for coruppted gems." she said awkwardly, she looked up at the two gems and asked shyly with a little blush on her cheeks " Who are you?"
Variscite looked up slightly as the tall Gem stood up before them, "Shes a t-tall one..." He mumbled to himself before she spoke to them, "Its all g-good dont worry about it." He said with a smile trying to make her feel more at ease. He could tell she had not spent too much time around Gems or humans because he can see a bit of his past self in how she speaks and holds herself... not that his past self was a giant women or anything...
The tan Gem could only blush slightly after the blue Gem nudge him back, he was kinda confused because normally the other person wont nudge him back... or did they? Even he forgot how some of the humans acted, and he spent enough time as of late to understand a good amount. "Im Variscite and this is Hemimorphite." He said switching his glance from one gem to the other before returning his gaze back to Musgravite and getting an idea, "If you are f-feeling... off... I could fix it..." He wasnt speaking very loudly and wasnt sure how either of them would react if he were to just fire up his ability now, not all Gems liked having some kind of power used on them.
Hemimorphite gave a small wave to Musgravite as she was introduced, giving a light nod. "I believe it just takes some getting use to, you know, to talk to other gems. I know we haven't been doing much of that in awhile? How about we all just sit and talk calmly?" She suggested an alternative, hopefully they would all come to an agreement. If not, they could do whatever they deemed fit at the moment. "Maybe we could all get to know one another? Because I am more than willing to share with you both."
"I know Variscite has some very lovely songs he can share if it gets quiet and dull." Hemimorphite clasped her hands together and looked at them both, hoping they would agree on at least one thing. She was trying her best to keep all parties happy and satisfied by incorporating some of their own traits into the conversation, such as song, or whatever the tall purple gem had to offer.
Musgravite looked at the little blue gem and nodded " i would love to play my zither while you sing." she said as she looked over at the tan gem giving him a friendly smile, it had been a really long time since she had smiled.She was about to summon her zither when she felt a low rumble under her feet, instantly she was tense her calm, friendly self was now gone.She looked at the two gems "sorry" she said quickly as she scooped them up and jumped into the air and landed hard on a ledge as a large corrupted gem burst out of the ground, she turned and sat the gems down and quickly flung her hammer out of her neck.She threw her self at the monster and swung her axe down on its head, it cleanly sliced through making the gem poof. " that was a decoy" Musgravite mumbled as she bubbled the gem, there were more coming this gem was just a warning.
Variscite nodded as the blue Gem spoke, enjoying the idea that she was talking about, getting to know one another better... it was peaceful out so it would be perfect! When she brought up singing he twitched slightly, "Oh m-man... I dont really sing too much infront of... um... others..." He said feeling rather shy about his own voice when he would sing.
A rumbling caused the tan Gem to stumble a moment, "Ohhh.... does that mean..." Beofre he could finsh what he was going to say he was scooped up by the large female Gem and taken away along with Hemimorphite. While he was about to call for his weapon to help in the fight, the creature was gone and Musgravite had just bubbled the Gem away, "Right... t-two things, one! You are v-very strong! Two, if more come we can handle them." He said with a grin crossing his arms over his chest, he glanced over at Hemimorphite with a smile before looking back at Musgravite. He enjoyed taking a glance at her for an odd reason... one he was very awkward about if he had to try and talk about it.
"Oh well, you don't have to if you don't want-" She paused as the ground shifted beneath her feet, causing her to furrow her brows in confusion and look down. Suddenly, before she had a chance to inspect the moving earth, she was whisked away by Musgravite, to which her only reaction was a surprised huff and slightly widened eyes.
This all seemed to be very sporadic, and the moment she was set down she summoned her bow. "We can work together, so it won't be hard to bring a couple of corrupted gems down..." Hemimorphite tucked her weapon underneath her arm. "I agree, you are a very strong gem, fighting must be a strong suit of yours, dear." She nodded her head.
If there was another small battle with the corrupted gems, Hemimorphite surely wouldn't have minded.

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.

*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
