Okay, I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this... but can corrupted gems be cured?
I wanted to make my character currently corrupted, then have a roleplay where one or more gems fix the issue, to initiate character development and relationships, but I'm not even sure if it's possible for them to become 'cured' on this site. If they can, how would they, and would other gems know about the method?
Thanks! Again, sorry if I posted this in the wrong section ;.;
On this site the corruption for lack of a better term is treated like a type of virus, it is a virus that feeds off the negative emotions of a gem and is unique for each gem (The idea being that the negative emotions then make you susceptible to the virus). Some gems have such a influx of negative emotions and a dwindling mental state that the corruption is able to fully take hold, warping their mind and making it very difficult for them to be cured. Some gems though, may have this influx of negative emotions but they fight it enough that the corruption is subdued/destroyed,some gems fight it but can still be proned to episodes where they transform.Unfortunately continuousness exposure to Earth progessivly increases the chance of infection aswell due to being in such close proximity to the virus at all times.
So basically each gem is cured in a unique way, but the general consensus is a gem can be cured or cause the virus to hibernate if they can eliminate or learn to cope with their influx of negative emotions. At the same time some gems wont/cant learn to cope and it is generally these gems that start to turn into the mindless monsters we see in the show.
That is why it is so difficult to cure, their is no serum that can fix it and the cure may be radically different between each gem, because of this the cure is also not really known as the nature of the virus being rooted in negative emotions has not been researched (Due to the Homeworld cutoff)
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.

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
