The tan Gem had been waiting outside of the Temple doorway, he looked like a nerves wreck. He had spent a few hours running around the town trying to find things for a Human style party, once he had a few things he wanted to use to decorate his room and even bought a gift for her... well he MAY have stolen the gift... thats besides the point!
Getting ready to go and find her a cake, he was hit with a realization, "The rooms will make whatever I want.... so I just wasted my.... ugh!" He grunted as he spent more time running around either returning things back or giving them away to random Humans, who seemed to give him an odd look. Like "Why is this werido giving me streamers?" Dashing back to the Temple hoping he had not missed Hemim, she might have already gone into the Temple and he missed her.
He leaned back onto the ground before the portal door with a sigh, "I hope she isnt mad..." Within his room he had spent some time making it look good for a party. Their were steamers hanging from the roof of his room and other party decerations and even a cake with her name on it, the pitch black walls still moved in and out reveling some kind of void inbetween the walls and floor. The colors that flashed to the beat of a song were slowly flashing to a nice calm beat, "I hope this goes well..." Variscite had high hopes for this party.
Last Edit: Sept 10, 2015 16:08:46 GMT by Variscite
She had been taking a long time in town today, inspecting various human shops, especially the ones that had sold gardening supplies and crisp green plants. Despite Variscite running around all day, she didn't seem to notice him on her examination. As Hemimorphite returned to the Crystal Temple, she kept her usual happy grin. The temple began to grow as a regular visiting place, her curiosity only granting her access to one or two rooms, and if she was lucky, she was able to receive a small tour of sorts. But that didn't seem to bother her, at least she was stil able to meet with friends more often there since it became a beacon of socialization and in a way, mayhem.
Hemimorphite clasped her hands together and glanced about as she entered the temple. "Hello~" She chimed, "Anyone home?" Intruding would be rude of her, so it was only polite to ask.
Variscite twtched slightly at the sound of another voice, lifting his head up to see Hemimorphite standing in the doorway. "Hey! Perfect timing! So... I was wondering if you could follow me?" He said taking a few steps closer, "I had an idea the other day, since you were being so nice I decided to do a Human type thing for you." Turning to look a the door as a green Gem shifted and the door slowly cracked down the center before opening reveling a dark looking room with slowly flashing colorful lights shining out.
"Humans have parties like this for friends and other members of their family... s-sorry if you already know what this kind of thing is." He said rubbing the back of his neck, running his fingers along his Gem. He wasn't sure if she knew what a party was, feeling rather awkward about bringing it up the way he did.
"Parties? Ah! A celebration! What is this celebration for exactly? All I did was hang around you until you felt better." Hemimorphite raised a brow and stood behind him, attempting to peer over his shoulder. She didn't want to lie, she was a tad curious as to what he had planned, and how long it took him to plan all of it. In a way, she felt as though she didn't deserve the treatment she was receiving. "Are you sure it isn't a bit... Too much? I mean, Human Celebrations are always loud and joyous, and it involves a lot of activity." The blue gem placed a finger on her lip as she glanced back to Variscite, having a concerned expression on her face.
Variscite blushed for a moment before shrugging with a smile, "You dealt with me... plus I cant say I have too many friends really. You... Carbonado... Amber... though I havent seen either of them in awhile." He thought for a moment as he rubbed his chin thinking about other Gems he knew, "A few others but I dont see them alot either, you just kinda... stuck around so I figured a party was in order! Yes?"
Turning to the door leading to his room, the beat still bumping lightly and the colors flashing slowly. Looking back at Hemim over his shoulder, "Wanna go step inside? The door should stay open unless a Gem wants to go to another room... still not sure how this place works yet..." He trailed off looking around the opening for a moment, "Its up to you." He spoke with a smile and holding his hand out, if she did take his hand or just follow him he had planned to lead her into the dark room.
Flashing lights abound, switching colors every other burst of light. The beat was calm and soothing, more of a techno sounding beat thats easy to nods your head too, at one side of the room was a large black couch that could sit up to four or five Gems. A table across from the couch had a one tier cake, simple but lovely with a white base with light blue trimmings along the side. Next to the cake was a large bowl of red fruit like drink, and fianlly next to the bowl was a green and purple wrapped small box, with a small bow upon the top.
"Uh-huh..." She gave a slow nod, blinking at him before pondering on her thoughts. Was she really worth all of that trouble he probably went through? Hemimorphite let out a small sigh and grinned, taking his hand before entering the colorful, yet oddly darkened room. "Oh my, you didn't have to do all of this, really." The blue gem cooed as she wandered about the room, stopping to admire the craftsmanship of the cake. "This is simply adorable." Hemimorphite added, running her finger along the table as she walked around it.
She felt rather bad about it, guilty in a way. Although he did seem proud of his achievements, she just didn't feel like it was her place to receive a splendid surprise like this one.
"Hm, what's in the box, is this a gift? Oh right, humans exchange these frequently!" She had an 'aha!' moment as she felt the cloth of the bow. "This is all very cute Variscite."
Upon them entering the room Variscite had walked over to the couch nodding his head to the beat as he sits down, looking over he sees Hemim wondering the room. "Honestly... I spent a good part of the day running around finding stuff... but then I realized that the rooms will make ANYTHING I want and... I wanted a party so poof! Really wasnt hard at all." He spoke leaning back crossing one leg over the other.
He was hoping that some Gems would pop up soon... he didnt want her to think he set this up just for them to be together, he really wanted to throw a party just so a group could have fun together. When Hemimorphite asked about the gift he sat up right quickly, "Oh! Um... thats for later." He said rubbing the back of his neck, running his fingers along his Gem, "Thanks... hopefully the room itself isnt too bad... I was having a hard time making it change that..." He spoke looking around hoping it wasnt too bad.
Alex made a small incline as he twisted sideways and circled around the cliff slowing lining himself up with the temple. As he got closer though he noticed the door to the temple was fully opened, a small amount of light seemed to be spilling out and the beat of music echoed somewhat through the empty. Alex slowed his speed down as he landed on on the temple warp, stumbling slightly from the landing. His wings splayed like they were stretching before folding away behind his back and gently glowing as they returned into his back gems. He slowly headed towards the temple door staying out of eye-line of any gems inside.
He made it all the way to the door itself before stopping against the wall, slowly he poked his head into the doorway to see what was causing the noise and light-show. His hand resting on the door so he could lean forward slightly to get a better view of what was inside.
Mangano sort of aimlessly wandered for a bit. Where would anything interesting be...? Hm..There is a temple, she believed. An actual temple for gems, not those crazy human religious ones. She steered her direction towards the temple. It took a bit longer than it should have. Mangano was sort of walking one way, then deciding the other way was correct. She had seen it a few times though, so she pretty much knew where it was. When she finally saw the temple and walked closer, she saw another gem. They kind of look like a thief, being sneaky like that... ...Is what Mangano is doing wrong? Was she going to be ruining some gem's privacy? She shook her head. Maybe the other gem wasn't a thieving axe-murderer. And even if they were, she'll just try to stop them, or at least get the item(s) back. She got close enough so that she could be seen, and the temple's view was...."Wow..." She had never been so close to it before.
"Oh please, the room is lovely, I wouldn't change a thing. I'm also quite happy with how willing you were to run around." She let out a soft chuckle as she pulled away from the gift and sat down, only to look over and spot the head of a figure taking a peek. "Is this perhaps a guest?" She cooed clasping her hands together. "A human party wouldn't be a party without those, my you have everything planned out, don't you Variscite?"
Hemimorphite was rather pleased with all of this, and gave Variscite a pat on the head as a small thank you for his hard work and dedication to the party he carefully planned out, well, at least she had assumed her carefully planned it all out.
"Im just glad you enjoy this... hopefully others will enjoy this too... and eat some cake..." He mumbled at the end glancing over at the cake that was adorned with a few candles that are yet to be lit yet. When she spoke of a guest he turned his head looking at the door before jumping up avoiding her pat to his head, "Me? Have things planned out? Ha! Never!" He spoke with a chuckle as he saw the figure peeking in from the door, it was a Gem he had never seen before which ment he could meet another new Gem which made him grin.
"Hey! Come on in! Have a small party in here that all are welcome too!" The tan skinned Gem spoke waving in the Gem he saw at the doorway. He was eager to have a nice gathering of Gems without fighting or Corrupt Gems ruining everything, "Im Variscite and this is Hemimorphite." He was hoping the new Gem would enter and hopefully any that are around him will join them.
Alex's hair stood on end as Hemimorphite and the other gem seemed to finally notice him. He let out what could on really be described as a squeak before over balancing and falling into the door with a loud thud. His form glitching out for a second when he slammed into the ground
"I have a alibi!" He exclaimed
"Hey! Come on in! Have a small party in here that all are welcome too!"
"I, wait, its...Pa-rt-y?" He stumbled over his words. Alex's stealth skills definitely needed to be improved on and his reaction afterwards could of been more subdued aswell. Regardless Alex had no idea what this event was but it seemed to make Hemimorphite happy so there was at least that. Granted though he had no idea who this Variscite gem was and was cautiously paranoid of his presence.
He slowly enter the room fully and was hit with the sound of music and the specific odour of human food. He had never been one very partial to the trivialities of human cuisine and frankly he had no idea what any of this was. It was like stepping into a alien world, again and it made Alex somewhat uncomfortable, it didn't help that the lighting hurt his eyes and he was sore from falling over. So he hesitated it keep moving forward towards the center of the room.
Mangano kind of stayed at the doorway. "U-um, can I...?" She sighed, and somehow actually chuckled a bit. Ah, Mang, you ghost, you. Sure, the strange gem had said everyone welcome, but...he had said it without looking at her, after all. But the other gem...there was something perhaps odd about him. She had seen his form sort of glitch out, but since she hadn't really been around gems, she didn't really have a clue what it meant. It might be nothing, since the other gem didn't bat an eye about it...Mangano took a deep breath and went inside anyway. She want to see what a...What was the word? Panty, maybe? Yeah, that sounded right. She wanted to see what that was, and she wasn't disappointed when she saw all the colors. ((OOC: Isn't the cake a construct of the room? Meaning no eating? P good Weight Watchers idea though))

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
