However, when an evil force arrives to finish what it started, it is up to this young woman, her lion, and the Crystal Gems to stop this threat and save the Universe. (This will be a collaboration with :iconcleverun:)

Gemian Linage Tree by ScrapstheFool
Gemian Linage Tree
Here at the Society of Gemian Culture and History (SGCH), we are uncovering various artifacts relating to the culture of the Crystal Gems, and more importantly, the so called "Crystal Tribunal" or "Gemians.

What we have here is a translated parchment that describes the lineage of the Crystal Tribunal (otherwise known as the House of DITOROQU (Die-Tow-Row-Qu)). Unlike basic Gems which could not reproduce, the Gemians could, many of which carry vast power.  Here are some important details:

1. The top of the tree displays GEMA, The Crystal Mother, or The Gem Mother, she was the one who defeated the Obsidian and sacrificed her physical form to create her children. All Gemians are descendants of her.

2. Diamond's line (The House of DIONPEZI (Die-On-Peh-Zie)) is shown to result from generations of inbreeding. It is believed that the result of such a drastic decision lead to his linage's weakness in power, making them no different than a Crystal Gem, it is also believed that Zirconia (ZI) was as powerful as a basic human as a result of this.

3. Topaz's line (The House of TOLALAEMPEHISU (Toe-La-La-Em-Peh-Hi-Sue)) is composed of Topaz and zir 4 children, each composed over a single element. Lapiz Lazuli (LALA) is Water, Emerald Peridot (EMPE) is Earth, Hiddenite (HI) is Wind, and Sunstone (SU) is Fire. As of now, due to the mystery behind Topaz is it currently unknown how and with whom did zie concept these children.

4. Rose's line (The House of ROQU (Row-Qu) is composed of Rose and her mate, a Metal ore by the name of Copper (although current information reveals he goes by the name of "Greg Universe"). Both of them conceived a child by the name of Quartz (although current information reveals he goes by the name of "Steven Universe"), who in turn began a relationship with a human woman named "Connie Maheswaran". It is believed that the two have concepted two children, but the current whereabouts of those children are unknown.

5. At the bottom of the tree is The Obsidian Leviathan (Also known as OB). Despite popular belief, Obsidian is in fact a Gemian, and was the original ruler of the Universe, it was then GEMA defeated him and banished it to a void. Those who follow in the shadow of Obsidian are known as The Obsidious Genus, which are considered heretics by the House of DITOROQU.

If you have any questions on Gemian culture or the Tribunal themselves. Let us know. If you have any insight on this artifact or any other, please contact a SGCH professional as soon as possible. 

Update: Just recently, a colleague of mine named :iconacenos: has just discovered a new Gemian lineage. You can find out more here: SU EMM: House RIPARIUS by AceNos

So a few hours ago, we had lost a close friend to the fanfiction family, although he was not known by many, I knew him as :iconstarchaser-75: We will miss his eccentric criticism, his uses of Voice and his song that was both joyous and horrifying.

Here is a prime example of his work, which will always have a place in my heart:
E.M.M. MST, Chpt. 1: Date with an Badfic Star: We’re back!
Voice: And we’re in for it this time!
Star: You see, it was a while ago that we first came upon the Steven Universe fanfic ‘Everyone Makes Mistakes’.
Voice: We wrote reviews for it! Remember?
Star: It seemed innocent enough at first glance, before we opened it. And then…
Voice: Then all hell broke loose.
Star: After all those reviews, we kinda forgot about it for a while.
Voice: But it came to our attention the other day that there was a whole community dedicated to this on DeviantART.
Star: And then the thought had occurred to me: Why don’t we riff this?!
Voice: Even though we’re banned from visiting DeviantART for the safety of our health, :icontrollface-mastah: was kind enough to help us out!
Star: Expect more of us from him. But anyway, since it’s probably too late to ask for :iconscrapsthefool:’s permission to riff this-
Voice: Can he riff it? Please?
Star: Not now, I’m talking. Anyway, let’s ge

Now, you might be wondering why Star left us. Well, thanks to  :crystal-gem-goddess:, she discovered that this was caused by a deviant known as :iconvoltaliathemajestic:. This deviant, harassed Star and drove him to remove his account on DA, and FF.net.

Here is a description of the incident, as described by :iconcrystal-gem-goddess::

t's very serious and it destroyed Star's life. He is scarred for life all because of Volt. 

Volt is 19; Star is 15. There is one problem...it is illegal. Mainly because of one thing, Volt would send him explicit messages which Star felt uncomfortable receiving...yet he didn't say anything. 

This is extremely serious because not only that, she would control his life. I stood up against her and I broke them up as Star begged me to do it for him...she told me to leave her and Star alone when he wants nothing to do with her. 

Volt would sexually abuse him at a young age....

Other than that, she would cyber bully others in the SU archive. For example, Serena Summers. Sure, her stories weren't great but that doesn't give Volt the right to be rude and to pick on her. Serena even suffered a horrible depression at the time and this was uncalled for her. I talked to Serena and offered to help her with her fics in which she happily took and she has gotten better. Serena was accepting of her mistakes and errors. Volt claimed that Serena was acting like a brat, but it was a lie. Volt came off wrong. 

Now many of you are wondering if it is just a misunderstanding or think it;s just a misread comment.

Well, how do you feel after seeing these:

My Bed of Wonders by VoltaliatheMajestic "This is the place where I'll dream of many fabulous things. Attached is the body pillow, which I use for humping whenever I think about Star."

Making Love with Wedding Cake by VoltaliatheMajestic "Yes, I really am making a helluva lot of love with Kim and Kanye's wedding cake while pretending it's my beloved Starman."

Sorry, not sorry. XD
Hey Sarah!Voice: I think this is a stupid idea.
Star: 'Oh, I think this is a stupid idea!' Ask me if I care.
Voice: Do you care?
Star: Let's see... no!
Voice: Fine.
:iconvoltaliathemajestic:, you asked for this! And here it is! (I'll just check off multiple, cause some of the other answers apply.)
IF WE HAD SEX:
[] Against the wall.
[x] On a bed.
[] Fast.
[] Doggy style.
[] In the shower.
[x] On the kitchen counter. (Sounds kinky.)
[] On the washing machine.
[] You're on top.
[] Anal.
[] We wouldn't.
[] I don't know...
[] The what
[] Over my dead body!
[] Oh, you would want that, wouldn't you?
[x] The things I'd do to you, guess for you being topless has it's advantages. (Just... don't ask. If you insist on asking, though, send me something on Fanfiction.net.)
IF YOU KISSED ME, I WOULD:
[x] Kiss back.
[] Blush.
[] Slap you.
[] Stare at you, wondering if we would kiss again. 
[] Laugh about it.
[] Bite your lip.
[x] If you work hard for it, maybe the tongues will play
 :iconvoltaliathemajestic:, you asked for this! 

Now that you know the truth (or at least, the visible part). What must be done? A Deviant ha been sexually harassed off this site, and Volta is to blame.

If you want to know more, contact

Th-thats all...

...eh...goodbye....

Topaz: The Taskmaster by ScrapstheFool
Topaz: The Taskmaster
"From the moment we were conceived, my siblings and I had a purpose to defend the Universe. As much as I tried to be more like my brother, I found more of a connection to Rose, my sister. The more I bonded with Rose, the more I realized that her ideal of protecting and aiding the Universe was a great opportunity. Diamond though otherwise, he proclaimed us as traitors and tried to kill us. If I was not so obsessed with preservation I could have…saved them."

"In the millennia we have spent protecting the Universe, my siblings and I formed the Crystal Guardians. However, as time went on we developed our own ideals of how we should protect the Universe. Rose wanted to help everyone and everything, and Topaz wanted to protect the Universe only from Gem based threats. While their intentions were pure, they did not see the truth as I did. For you see, the true threat is not what is attacking the Universe but rather the Universe itself."

Chapter 8: Like Diamonds in the Sky

[*]

Greg's Shed, 5 years ago,

[*]

"Almost finished…." Pearl said to herself as she slowly inserted the final sparkplug into the engine of her jury-rigged spacecraft. For a ship built out of spare parts and junk, it was really well built. As soon as Pearl inserted the sparkplug, the rocket came to life, Pearl's eyes beamed as she backed away from her creation, taking in the fruit of her labor with such awe.

"It's finished! I can't believe I did it, and all in a barn with a box of scraps!" Pearl cheered to herself, suddenly covering her mouth so she did not wake the two founder of "Universe & Universe," which were sleeping in a van next door. As Pearl was about to open the door, she felt a small burn on her cheek. When she looked in her reflection on the hull of her ship, she then remembered her Master. The only thing that held her back and controlled her, not to mention the one that was forcing her to groom Steven into a sacrifice for his plan of Universal dominance.

"No! I won't let you have him." Pearl said to herself before she felt a chill in the air. As she looked up at the ship, she saw another being in the reflection.

"What is the meaning of this?" Master Diamond said to Pearl, who quickly turned to face her Master. Pearl froze, as Diamond looked down at her with an expression of irritation "Are you planning to leave the Planet, Vestibulum?"

"N-n-no, of course not Ma-Master!" Pearl said nervously, "I was making this ship because Steven asked me to.

Diamond then looked up at the ship and raised an eyebrow, "Then would you explain to me why it looks exactly like a Metalian fighter?"

Pearl looked to the ground before responding to Diamond. "Well…Greg helped me with it."

Diamond looked to Pearl with an expression of shock and anger as her approached Pearl and grabbed her by the throat, lifting her up to his face. Pearl felt Obsidian tears pour down her face as she looked into the molten red eyes of Diamond.

"You are working with one of *THEM*?" Diamond shouted at Pearl, the whole barn shook from the vibrations. "I was sure I sent you to wipe out any survivors, WHY IS THIS ONE STILL ALIVE?"

"Wait Master, He is not anymore." Pearl pleaded with Diamond "He gave up his powers so he could be with Rose. Without then, he is no different from a mere Human. That means this rocket is useless. "

Diamond scowled as he slammed Pearl to the ground, turning back to the Rocket and extending his hands.

"One cannot lose their powers Vestibulum; they can only be transferred to another or suppressed. Copper did not lose his powers, but in fact transferred them to that half-child of his. Even more of a reason to acquire his Vitae; Are you aware of the power that a Gemian/Metalian hybrid possesses?"

Pearl stumbled on the ground as Diamond continued talking, she then noticed a large wrench on the ground and reached our for it. As she did, she felt her arm pull back.

"Come on Pearl, you have to fight it. For Steven!"

As she reached for the wrench, she felt the tears of Obsidian pouring down her face, burning her as she finally grabbed the wrench and stood back up, facing her master with a look of resentment. As she crept behind him, listening to his speech about the Metalians, she gripped the wrench back and lifted it up like a baseball bat.

"…erased them for that reason Vestibulum, they needed to be destroyed because they were a threat, just like-"

*CLANG*

Pearl swung the wrench as hard as she could against the back of Diamond's head. The Gemian fell to the ground with a hard thud, knocked out cold by Pearl's attack. As Pearl looked over her unconscious Master, she looked at the wrench in her hand; the head has a small splash of blue blood on it, his blood, and her blood.

As Pearl dropped the wrench onto the ground, she grabbed Diamond by the boots and dragged him over to a small pile of junk. She then covered him in a tarp and proceeded to walk out of the barn. As she did, she thought about what would happen once he woke up, what would be the consequences of…NO! That was not what would happen; she knew what had to be done, she would take Steven into space, she knew that Diamond could not leave the planet at this moment, and that taking Steven off Earth was the only way to ensure he was out of Diamond's grasp.

"Forgive me Master…" Pearl whispered to herself as she closed the barn door, "But I must do this... for Steven."

[*]

Steven was asleep on the roof of his dad's van, wearing an adorable beetle sleeping bag. As he slept, he then felt the sensation of a finger poking him in the face. As he opened his eyes, he saw Pearl kneeling before him.

"Wha…" Steven said in confusion, only to be shushed by Pearl.

"Shhh! Want to see something really cool?" Pearl asked Steven quietly; in a tone, that many people would assume to result in a visit from Chis Hansen.

Steven emerged from his sleeping bag as Pearl guided him down from the van, trying her best not to wake Greg, who was sleeping in the back of his van.

"No…don't give him a banana." Greg mumbled in his sleep, "That's what he wants."

As the two Gems approached the barnyard door, Pearl grabbed and opened it for Steven.

"Presenting the brand new ballistic flight capable Universe Mach three!" Pearl said excitedly as she presented her ship to the half-Gem.

Steven gasped with awe as he pointed at the ship and looked to Pearl, who nodded in consent.

"Spaceship!" Steven shouted as he rushed to the new vehicle before him.

"Wait Steven!" Pearl shouted in contained excitement. "Keep your voice down!"

As she watched Steven run joyfully to the ship, she noticed the blood wrench next to her foot, as well as the small trail of blue blood, which led to a tarp beside the ship. Pearl looked at the tarp nervously before her attention was drawn to the voice of Steven.

"Whoa!" Steven said in awe, "It's even got the logo from the van!"

"And if your dad asks, we'll say we borrowed it." Pearl replied, watching Steven enter the cockpit. She then looked back to the tarp and sighed.

"Goodbye Master." Pearl said with a cold tone. "This is for Rose." She then turned back to Steven and smiled.

"If you want Steven, we can take it out for an engine check." Pearl call out to Steven in a baiting voice, she then touched her Gem and her robe was replaced with a Gemian spacesuit. "It'll be quick!"

[*]

The sound of a jet engine roaring in a paper-thin barn was enough to wake good old Greg from his slumber.

"Wha…What the…" Greg said in confusion as he looked around for the source of the noise. It did not take him long to realize where it was coming from.

"PEARL!" Greg shouted as he bolted out of his van, just in time to see Steven and Pearl already leaving the van from inside of the Universe 3. Greg watched in horror as Steven waved to his father from inside the cockpit.

"Steven! What are you doing!" Greg shouted as he watched the ship fly into the open sky.

Inside the barn, Master Diamond rose from under the tarp. As he looked around in confusion, he saw the bloody wrench and the missing ship.

"The ship…what?" Diamond said as he stepped out of the barn, only to see not only Pearl's ship flying off but also Greg chasing after it. It was then did Master Diamond realize what was happening.

"You dare escape from me?" Diamond growled as he brought his hand up, pointing them at the ship flying into the sky. "YOU DARE BETRAY ME?!" Diamond then clenched his hand, as if he was grabbing onto something and trying to pull it down to earth.

[*]

Inside the cockpit of Universe 3, Steven noticed that the ship seemed to be slowing down, almost as if it was being dragged down. He then noticed that the ship itself was beginning to fall apart, Steven groaned anxiously as he then saw a large chunk of metal fall off the ship.

"What was that?" Steven asked Pearl, his mind racing with fear.

Suddenly, there was a large flashing alarm going off in the ship, the sound caused Steven's stomach to drop.

"Pearl?" Steven asked anxiously to Pearl.

"We can make it!" Pearl said, ignoring Steven and focusing on space, "We're almost there!

Steven looked back out at the ship, he watched as the "Mr. Universe logo peeled off the hull of the ship. The whole vessel looked like it was about to explode at any minute.

"Pearl" Steven shouted as he looked to Pearl, who seemed hell-bent on leaving Earth, even if it meant a fifty-year voyage and a possible demise by rocket explosion.

"I'm gonna show it to you…" Pearl said as she glared into the stars before her, all the sounds around her, the alarm of the ship, Steven's shouting, even the creaking of the ship as it fell apart. All were drowned out by a single voice in her head. The voice of the once she called Master.

"You. I know you can hear me. When you return, Vestibulum... I'll be waiting. You have not yet understood the consequences of what you have done!" The voice lowed to a hissing whisper as it flooded Pearl's mind,"When you return... I'll be waiting here... at the temple.Waiting...for YOU!"

Pearl was broken out of her trance by the sound of the cockpit release hatch unlocking and the glass window shooting off, as she felt the cold air, she looked to Steven in surprise.

"Steven! What are you doing?" Pearl asked Steven, still transfixed on the thought of leaving Earth.

"We have to go Pearl!" Steven said to Pearl. "We're not going to make it!"

Pearl could not accept that, they had to escape from earth, from Master; Pearl just could not accept going back, not after what she did.

"But we're almost there!" Pearl pleaded with Steven, looking up at her only chance to save both of them, her only chance to save Steven. She then felt a pair of hands touch her face that brought her attention to the young Gem before her.

"Pearl! I know you miss space and I know you worked really hard, but sometimes, you just got to know when to bail."

Pearl looked to Steven and then up to space. In her mind, she realized that no matter what she did, no matter how desperate she had to be, there would be no escape from earth, and there was no escape from the Master. She knew that all she could do for Steven is help him through his life before…

Pearl sadly nodded before reaching down and pulling on the ejection lever. She then grabbed Steven tightly as the two ejected from the ship, which exploded right after.

[*]

"NOOOOO!" Greg screamed as he saw the ship explode above him, as he prayed for a sign of life, he saw Steven and Pearl's ejection parachute, sighing in relief before slumping to the ground in exhaustion.

At the base of the Crystal Temple, Diamond watched as the Parachute glided down in the air. He then turned around and entered into the rock wall before him.

As Pearl looked down at the city below her, she then looked to Steven with a feeling of immense guilt.

"I am so sorry Steven." Pearl said softly to the Half-Gem in her lap, "I almost got us killed."

"I'm used to it." Steven responded, "I'm sorry I couldn't help you get to space. We'll get there someday, I promise."

"You know, I think I'd rather be here on earth." Pearl said to Steven.

"With me!" Steven interjected gleefully.

Pearl looked back to the temple and though about Master, she then looked to Steven and gave him a half-smile.

"Yeah…with you…"

[*]

Crystal Temple Topside, present day,

[*]

Diamond watched the sunset before him, as he contemplated the return of Steven and the betrayal of his servant Pearl, he felt the presence of a being beside him. He then turned to see Rose standing beside him; her presence was beaming, even to the Old King.

"Remember when we came to this planet when it was just born?" Rose said to her brother, who was silent as he watched the sun fall. "I was so naive back then, We didn't need to worry about the Gems, or Metalians, or even our duties as Gods."

"You didn't." Diamond replied as he continued to stare at the red orb in the distance. "Topaz and I did, you just poked and explored this rock like a child."

Rose huffed as she turned to Diamond. "I was still a child then, if you recall, I was born the last. You made that very clear by calling me Praecinctorium."

Diamond sighed, "You do know Nostalgia is not going to change anything. Right?"

Rose's expression changed to a sadder tone as she looked to the sun once again. "I don't understand why though, why must you kill them? What good will come from all of this? You speak of order and peace, yet you have declared war and committed Genocide upon your own people, especially your siblings."

Diamond then turned to Rose with a look of anger, "War? No, not war, wiping the slate clean, Make the Universe like it was meant to be: undisturbed by free will."

Rose backed up a litter before looking to Diamond, "Brother, I had to because I would think that in the time without my power, you could see that this would, just like the others, can thrive with its faults. In fact, the faults themselves bring out the best in this Universe.

Diamond scowled before his sister, crossing his arms as she smiled at him. "You are blind to the truth, just like Topaz. I am more surprised that a God of knowledge like zir would follow such a thoughtless belief. Perhaps that knowledge will be put to good use when I control it."

Rose sighed as she approached her sibling. "Diamond, I beg of you, stop this madness, there is still time to-"

"NO!" Diamond shouted to Rose as he swung his fist at her, only for her to dodge the attack. "It is too late to turn back! I have worked too hard to control the majority of this Universe; I have the Obsidian Leviathan at my control, and an army of Agates in construction I'll send the Leviathan, the Agates. Bring ruin in my hands until only I stand atop the Tribunal Temple again. I will scour galaxy after galaxy with the Leviathan, rain its walls with spears of Obsidian - with an army of obedient machines behind me. and once I have absorbed your Vitae and Topaz's. I will become as powerful as Gemia herself, and once I erase free will form this Universe, my purpose will be complete!"

Rose saw as Diamond's eyes filled with tears, his expression a mixture of pride and, to her surprise, guilt.

"I will kill or control each and every last one of them until it is only me…alone…in a quiet Universe….a perfect one."

He then turned to Rose, who looked at him with a look of sadness, and clenched his hands towards her, tears pouring from his molten red eyes.

"STOP IT! STOP DOING THIS TO ME! WHY WON'T YOU HATE ME? WHY CAN'T I HATE YOU! PLEASE! LET ME HATE YOU!"

Rose walked up to Diamond and gave a small smile towards him. The Gemian fell onto his knees before his sister. She placed her hands on his face and looked into his eyes.

"Diamond, no matter what you have done, no matter what you will do, I will never hate you, Topaz may hate you, but I am different, I see the good and beauty in everything around me, even in something as warped and lost as you. I know that there is good in you still, and it is the Leviathan that poisons your mind. That is the reason why I will always love you. Because no matter how far you fall, you will always be my brother, as I will always be your sister."

Diamond stood back up and approached a large grave; this was the grave of two people close to Rose, now it was only the grave of one. Diamond stared at it for a moment before looking back to Rose.

"It is too late for me to stop when I have come so far." Diamond whispered as he raised his hand before the grave, "I have come so close to purifying the Universe, that I will not let anything stop me, not even you."

Diamond then clenched his hands and a small copper cylinder emerged from the ground before them. As it floated in Diamond's hands, he turned back to Rose.

"What ever happened to "We cannot both exist? That is what I am more curious about." Diamond said as he handed her the cylinder.

Rose smiled as she looked at it "That is the most interesting thing about life Diamond: even with our live, they always find a way."

Diamond then turned back to the sunset. "You now know that you have to fight with them, correct?"

Rose smile faded a little as she looked at the cylinder.

"This also means that this is the last time we will speak as brother and sister." Diamond added.

"Rose felt tears flow from her face as she summoned a portal, she looked back to Diamond, who was still watching the sunset and then she silently entered the portal.

As Diamond heard the sounds of another portal, he felt the presence of Hematite behind him.

"What have you brought me?" Diamond asked the

"Master, the army is on its way." Hematite said as he knelt to his master, "We will have the Agates in three earth days."

"And the Leviathan?" Diamond asked

"It is nearing the final cycle." Hematite answered, "The Gems will not stand a chance. Your victory will be imminent."

"Leave." Diamond ordered Hematite as the Gem disappeared. As soon as Diamond was alone he approached the Tree that was nearby. Diamond then as he picked a Rose from the tree, which this time, did not wilt in his hand. As he examined the flower, he felt more tears fall from his face.

"Fortunate ego tam durus habet qui facit dimisisset?" Diamond whispered As he looked up at it, his mind faded to a memory he had forgotten.

"Vale, dulces Rose. Donate mihi quid faciam."

[*]

Rose's Hill, 14,000,000 years ago,

[*]

"Diamond! It's this way!" said a small Gem, she had short curly pink hair and wore a white dress, this Gem was known of Rose. Accompanying her was Diamond, only his hair was shorter, and his beard was just a goatee. Diamond moved slowly behind his sister, not seeing the point of this expedition.

"Remind me again why you brought me here?" Diamond asked Rose as he moved up the hill "This had better be worth the walk."

"It's over here!" Rose yelled to her brother "Get moving Dimy,your burning daylight!"

"First, you will address me as Diamond." Said Diamond, who hated that nickname, "and second, I do not see how it is possible to burn daylight, seeing as it is a emission from the sun, which is alrea-"

Okay okay, jeeze, It's a figure of speech." Rose said with a huff.

"You should act your age Rose." Diamond began to lecture, "As a Gemian, you will have more responsibilities as you-" Diamond stopped speaking as he watched rose digging a hole in the dirt. Her dress and suit were getting dirtier with every dig.

"Rose, what are you doing?" Diamond asked Rose.

Rose looked up at Diamond and smiled. "I'm showing my new trick."

Diamond sighed as he pressed between his eyes. "Rose, as Topaz has told us, basically any living creature can dig a hole."

Rose then clenched her hands over her Gem and produced a seed, which she planted into the earth and covered it up with dirt. "No! Not that, this."

Rose then stood up and grabbed Diamond's hand, having the two of them back away a couple inches from the new pile of soil. Diamond then watched as Rose pointed her hands at the pile and began to concentrate. As Diamond watched the soil pile, he noticed that a small plant began to sprout from the soil. Within a few minutes, the plant began to grow and grow, until it turned into a full-grown tree. As soon as it finished growing, Rose ran under the tree and hugged it's trunk.

"Isn't this neat Dimy?" Rose said as she approached Diamond, who was in awe that such a small Gemian could do this.

"This is impossible." Diamond said as he watches the leaves of the tree fall, Rose began to collect them into small piles before slamming into them. The little Gemian giggled as the leaves fell everywhere. As Diamond picked one of the rose flowers from its branch, he noticed that it wilted immediately in his grasp. Diamond tried to fuel it with Vitae, but it was no use. Rose then noticed it and approached her brother.

"How did you do this?" Diamond asked Rose, "What is the spell."

Rose sputtered as she then gave a wide grin at Diamond, "I'm not telling! DIMEY!"

Diamond twitched at the sound of that nickname, only to simply sigh and sit down, as he watched the sun set before him, he then watched as Rose walked in front of him and sat on his lap.

"Rose, get off of me." Diamond said in a annoyed tone.

"You should grow a bigger beard." Rose said, having completely ignored Diamond command.

"Why should I do that?" Diamond asked Rose as she picked up a rose peddle and brushed it agienst her hand.

"I think it would make you look more…awsomer!" Rose said as she looked at Diamond, stars beaming from her eyes.

"Awesomer is not a word." Diamond said as he turned his attention to the sunset, "You should know that by now, you little Praecinctorium."

"What does..p…pr…prancing erector mean?" Rose asked Diamond, the cuteness of her question almost made Diamond want to vomit.

"It is Gemian for an immature, compulsive, child." Diamond replied.

Rose puffed up in anger, "Well, if I am a prancing erector, then you are a…um…you're a…a…Asini.

Diamond's eyes widened, as he looked to Rose "Where in the name of GEMIA did you learn that?"

Rose smiled widely as she slouched in Diamond's lap. "Topaz told me, zie said that if even you call me names, I should call you an Asini. Um, what does Asini mean anyway?

Diamond sighed as he looked back to the flower in his hand, he noticed that this time, it was alive and healthy, as he wondered what it was that revived the plant, he felt a finger poke his face. Diamond attention was drawn to the giggling Gemian in his lap, which for some reason caused Diamond to feel something he had never truly felt before.

"Thank you Rose." Diamond said as he continued to watch the sunset. As Rose looked to Diamond with curiosity, she impulsively stuck her fingers into Diamond's mouth. Diamond quickly pulled her dirt and saliva covered fingers out of her mouth as he coughed from the experience.

"Rose! What in the name of GEMIA are you doing?" Diamond shouted at the little Gemian before him.

"I wanted to see you smile." Rose said innocently, "I don't think you can smile."

"Such an emotion is a waste of time and effort Rose." Diamond said as he recomposed himself. "I do not see a point in doing such a worthless exercise." Diamond then looked down to see Rose making weird faces at him.

"Are you taunting me?" Diamond asked in annoyance.

"I'm trying to make you laugh." Rose said with a grin, "Tell me Dimy: what makes you laugh?"

"Annoying little Pestes getting smashed into a pul-" Diamond stopped to see Rose looking up at him, her eyes welling up with tears as well as her lip quivering. In that instant, Diamond panicked.

"Uh…I mean…jokes…yes…jokes!" Diamond said quickly.

Rose expresseion turned to a huge star-eyed grin as she sat back down in Diamond's lap. Diamond sighed with relief as the two of them watched the sun set.

"Okay! Okay! I got one!" Rose said gleefully. "Why did Topaz throw butter out the window?"

"Why?" Diamond asked.

"Zie wanted to see a butterfly!"

"Why is spreading lies funny again?"

"No no, it's a play on words. "Butter-fly, get it?"

"Get what?"

"The joke"

"Where is it?"

"Where is what?"

"The Joke, where do I get it?"

"No no no…you…it's a…I…argh."

"Is this part of the joke, because I don't quite-"

"Argh, nevermind!"

Chapter 7: Sometimes, I Dream About Topaz

[*]

Beach City High School, present day

Connie sat at her desk as she waited for the teacher to begin his lesson, as she waited, her listened to the chatter of the classmates as they laughed and shouted at each other, boasting about small things that would be forgotten. She smiled as she looked out the window, the sun was shining, and there was not a single cloud in the sky. This has been the perfect day of her life so far. Aside from a small stomachache, nothing could ruin this day. Her moment of bliss was interrupted by the sound of a door opening as a man with blond hair and a blue suit entered the classroom. As he approached the desk, he placed the briefcase in his hand onto the table and then turned his attention to the class.

"Alright students, settle down now." The teacher said to the students, who quickly returned to their seats and stared at the teacher before them. Connie noticed the way the students stared at him, one moment they were exclaiming and teasing each other, the next moment they were deadpan and stoic, like statues. Connie then turned to the teacher who began to write his name on the board behind him.

"As you all know, I am your substitute teacher for the day. My name is Tom Pazali, and I will be enhancing your minds for the day.

"No one told us about a substitute teacher for the day." Connie objected as she felt her stomachache pang a little.

Tom turned to Connie and tilted his head. "Well, if you looked on your syllabus, perhaps you would understand, or perhaps you should focus on the teacher."

Connie was stunned at the response from the teacher, what kind of teacher would act like this?

As she looked back to the window, she saw clouds beginning to form and block out the sun, the whole sky turned grey and gloomy. Connie frowned as she clutched her stomach; a small throbbing was now beginning to intensify. It soon felt like her stomach was on fire. Connie tried to focus of Tom Pazali's lecture, but all she heard were low mumbles. She looked to her students and saw them staring at the teacher in the same deadpan expression. They were like robots, machines that responded without any form of will.

"Ms. Connie, since you are so interested in looking at things, could you please read the board out loud for the rest of the class?" Tom Pazali exclaimed to Connie, snapping her attention to the teacher before turning to the board.

As Connie looked to the board before her, she immediately realized that all the writing was a blur. Connie tried to adjust her glasses, only to realize she had no frames in them. She then remembered that her eyesight was healed, healed by…

"Steven…" Connie whispered

Suddenly, she felt a large agonizing throb in her stomach. Connie yelped as she fell onto the floor. As she looked up, she saw all the students staring down at her, their faces and bodies began to transforming into other people. Connie watched in horror as they all transformed into the image of a tall man with grey hair, a pointed nose, molten red eyes, and a long beard. As they all towered over her, she suddenly felt the pain in her stomach cease. As she looked down to her belly, she watched in horror as her shirt began to become stained with blood. She then looked up to the men above her and remembered whom those men truly are.

"You have stolen something from me, Furem!" the men shouted to Connie as they grabbed at her,"You are not worthy to be a Gem! You failed to save your beloved Steven! You! Are! A! FAILURE!"

"STOP IT! LEAVE ME ALONE! WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS? " Connie screamed as she shut her eyes and wrapped her arms over her head.

She suddenly felt a draft of air as she opened her eyes. She found herself on a beachside. As she looked around, she could see a young man in the distance. It was Steven, and he was naked. Upon looking down at herself, Connie realized she was naked too, just like in her nightmare.

She watched at Steven ran towards her, realizing what was going to happen, she extended her hands towards him.

"Steven, stop! It's a trap!" she shouted to the Half-Gem, only to realize she was already sinking into the sand below. As she sunk into the sandy depths, she could see Steven trying to dig her out, only to be stopped by a huge titan. To Connie's shock and horror, she noticed that this time, the titan had the physical appearance of Master Diamond. Connie tried to dig up toward the two Gems, she felt her body freeze up. Connie tried and tried, but she could not move a muscle. She then noticed her "Teacher" Tom Pazali, who soon transformed into a gold haired figure in a gold suit.

"You!" Connie shouted to the figure, "You're that Gem in Washington, your Topaz!"

Topaz smiled as zie nodded zir head, as soon as zie did, both of them were on the front steps of Steven's house. Connie noticed she was wearing a cream-colored dress and even her glowing bracelet. She soon realized that they were now at the night that Connie and Steven went on their big date, the night that changed their lives forever.

"This is…when I went on that date with Steven." Connie whispered as she touched the door to Steven's house, "Am I…are we…?"

"No, we are not." Topaz replied, "This is just a memory, however, I thought that this would be helpful in your recovery as to remind you of why all of this happened."

Connie stepped away from the door and walked up to Topaz. "I know I made a huge mistake, and it cost the life of the only boy I will ever love, and it's all because of Diamond."

Topaz placed zir hands on the angry girl's shoulders, watching as tears began to form from her eyes. Topaz then embraced Connie in a hug as she broke down before the Taskmaster.

"Connie, my sweet child, there is something you need to understand." Topaz said to the weeping child before zir. "What you assume to be a mistake, what happened that night, was one of the most miraculous moments in your young life's, you proved to Steven that despite his faults and his failures, not to mention his linage, you saw him as not a gem, but as a human being. Your love for him is not a mistake, but a miracle. If you embrace your love for him, your love for Steven, you will be able to forgive yourself." Topaz broke away from the hug and leaned against the balcony, looking up at the star filled sky. "I know what it is like to blame yourself and hold on to past mistakes."

Connie looked up to Topaz and wiped her eyes. "I know that Diamond was responsible for your sister's death." Connie interjected.

As she did, she saw Topaz's eye darken as zie stared into the stars.

"From the moment were conceived, my siblings and I had a purpose to defend the Universe. As much as I tried to be more like my brother, I found more of a connection to Rose, my sister. The more I bonded with Rose, the more I realized that her ideal of protecting and aiding the Universe was a great opportunity. Diamond though otherwise, he proclaimed us as traitors and tried to kill us. If I was not so obsessed with preservation I could have…"

Topaz looked down at zir hands, clenched into the wooden balcony.

"…saved them."

Topaz then turned to Connie who had a look of determination upon her.

"Connie, you are the only one who can stop him. I kno-"

Topaz stopped as Connie had her hand extended before the Gemian. She had a warm smile on her face as she walked towards the door, as she could hear the voices of Pearl and Steven from behind it, Connie took a deep breath, and grabbed the door.

The second she turned the handle and opened the door, there was a bright light, followed by the sound of Amethyst calling Steven. The next thing Connie knew, she was lying on a table, with Topaz standing next to her.

Tribunal Temple, present day

"Welcome back Connie." Topaz said warmly as zie helped Connie to her feet, "I believe you have some catching up to do, right after we inform Garnet and the rest.

Connie nodded in agreement, as she walked alongside the Gemian. Just then, a thought popped in her head.

"Say Topaz," Connie said to the Gemian, "In my dream, you were the Teacher, right?"

Topaz looked to Connie and nodded. "Of course, I thought the name "Tom Pazali" would be a dead giveaway, I was trying to stimulate your sub conscience."

Connie thought for a moment before responding again. "I can see how that would have worked, but here is my question: If you can easily disguise yourself as a man, then are you…I mean, you are…well…I remember Diamond saying something about finding out one day."

Topaz smiled as zie looked forward as zie entered a doorway. "Perhaps when this is all over, I will tell you. Now come, we have some training to do."

[*]

Crystal Temple Catacombs, Present day

"HOW DARE SHE?" Diamond shouted as he paced the chamber that he resided in. "She thinks she can betray me like that? I will show her. But first…"

Diamond reached into his robe and pulled out a silver colored pair of Gemstones. As he cupped them between his hands, he then tossed them onto the floor before him. The stones began to rise up and form into a grey figure.

"Haematitem, habita ad mihi!"

Within an instant, the figure transformed into a tall grey Gem, he wore a black suit of body armor, which bore a gold star on the front. Both his hair and goatee was as black as coal and his eye were pitch black as he looked to the Gemian before him. Upon seeing Diamond, the Gem quickly bowed before him. This was a Gem known as Hematite, who was at a time long ago a proud warrior of EMPE, but now a servant of DI.

"Master, you have summoned me." Hematite said to his master in a toneless voice. "How may I serve you?"

Diamond turned and faced a table before him. On the table, layer Onyx, her body strapped to a table and her chest cut open. The child of DI whimpered as Diamond walked over and began to trace his hand on Onyx's heart, which was a large black Gem.

"I have called upon you because I am lacking in servants." Diamond replied, "Vestibulum has betrayed me and run off to fight with Topaz, Zirconia is dead, Lapis's indoctrination was a failure, and now Onychinos has…other uses." He looked to the Gem before him, looking into her eyes that poured black burning tears, and slapped her across her face. He then turned to the still kneeling Hematite. "I was hoping I would not need to resort to using you, but recent actions have forced my hand. I am hoping you will be able to make up for the incompetence of my servants."

Hematite continued to kneel before his master as he spoke once again.

"How may I serve you Master?" Hematite said in the same tone.

Diamond pointed his hand to Hematite and gestured for him to stand up, which the Grey Gem did without hesitation. As he did, he looked up to see the Gemian once again at the table with Onyx, Hematite could hear Onyx whimpering as Diamond was crouching over here, a small hissing and clicking could be hear as well as well as a sound of slurping. As Diamond rose up from Onyx, Hematite could see Diamond's jaw split open as the tendrils of his jaw retracted to their natural form.

"First, you will go to Insidiae and recover the rest of my Agate army. Then, after I recover Vestibulum, you will attack the Temple. By then I will have enough Vitae to birth Obsidian and destroy those traitors once and for all, especially that little Furem. I will not allow…children…to carry that which belongs to me."

"Of course Master." Hematite said with a nod as he summoned a portal. As he was about to step into it, Master Diamond's voice stopped him."

One more thing Haematitem, I almost forgot to mention that both Peridot and Howlite are fighting with Topaz; will they prove to be a problem for you?

Hematite paused before looking to his master; Diamond noticed the look of hesitation as a black tear ran down his cheek. "Of course not master, they are as good as dead." With that, he entered the portal and closed it behind him.

Beach City Outskirts, present day

[*]

Pearl could not stop looking behind her as she rode on the back of Lion. She was so worried about how Master would react once he found out about her betrayal. Suddenly, she heard a loud rumble which was followed by a louder voice as it boomed into the sky above here.

"VESTIBULUM!"

Pearl froze in fear at the sound of her master's voice, but soon shook off the hesitation and continued forward; no longer would she become a puppet of a mad god, no more suffering, no more death. The death of Zirconia was enough to convince her to do what had to be done.

"VESTIBULUM! I COMMAND YOU, TURN BACK NOW, OR YOU WILL REGRET IT!"

"I am not going to serve you anymore!" Pearl shouted into the sky, and to the one she called master, "I can't do it anymore, you don't control me anymore."

As soon as she finished her sentence, she then felt her neck tighten as she began to suffocate. Pearl gasped as she fell off lion. As she struggled on the ground, she felt her throat burn as she spit up black Obsidian. As the long-nosed Gem cried in pain like a wounded animal, she looked up to see Lion approach her. He then turned his attention to the Gemian that was approaching both of them. Master Diamond looked to Pearl as she tried to crawl away, only to quickly summon his mace to block an attack by Lion. Diamonds then shoved Lion away, swinging his mace in retaliation, only for Lion to doge the attack, and swipe his claws at the Gemian. Pearl watched at the two attacked and dogged each other. It was surprising to see that a pink lion who could teleport could prove to be a match for a Crystal God.

Lion then pounced forward onto Diamond, tackling the Gemian and biting his shoulder, Diamond shouted before shoving lion off. Diamond gritted his teeth in anger as he summoned another mace. He then took both of his maces and swung them together, summoning in their place a mighty Warhammer.

"I had enough, enough of little cretins like you taking what belongs to me." Diamond said to his opponent. As Lion pounced at Diamond, the Gemian dogged the attack and smashed Lion in the face with his hammer. Lion flew across the air and smashed into the ground below him. This time however, he did not get up.

Pearl watched in horror as Diamond approached the body of Lion and looked down upon it. He then looked to his hammer and lifted it above his head, bringing it down and crushing the head of lion into a pink pulp, he continued to bring the hammer down repeatedly, smashing the poor animal's skull into the earth below him. Diamond then dissipated his hammer and turned his attention to Pearl, who was still trying to escape despite the Obsidian that was choking her. Diamond stormed up to the Gem and lifted her up by her hair, punching the screaming Gem in the face before kneeling on top of her. Pearl tried to struggle free as Diamond placed a hand onto Pearl's throat, choking his rebellious servant as he began to unfasten his robe.

"You think you've outsmarted ME? You're the one on a leash; you always were and always will be." Diamond hissed to Pearl as he tightens his grip, causing the long nosed Gem to spit up Obsidian bile. Diamond slapped the Gem in the face before grabbing her by the hair.

"I…I am sorry master." Pearl begged as she felt warm blood trickle down her face "I was trying to…to…"

"Escape? No! That cold hand on your throat is mine. It always was and it always will be." Diamond said drawing his hand away from Pearl's throat to rip open her skirt, as he did; he grabbed both of her hands to pin her down and position himself before her gemhood, pushing himself in and out in an aggressive motion. As Pearl struggled in agony, she noticed a pink flash of light from behind Diamond. Although it was brief, it seemed to emit from where lion was killed.

"You can't escape from me! You were always under my control!" Diamond hissed to the prey below him, moving his head so that it was inches away from Pearl's "Do you hear me Vestibulum? DO YOU HEAR ME?

As Diamond continued to punish his servant, he did not expect the figure that had appeared behind him.

"No matter what you do, I will control you. I have had my control over you since I spawned you. I will always have control. You can rebel, and fight back, but it will only be in vain. You have no means of escape. I am your master and I will always be your master. Do you really think you can escape from me? You are min-"

A large pink blade stabbing him in the chest interrupted diamond's monologue. Diamond shouted in strained agony as he looked down to the sword before him. Within an instant, Diamond teleported away from the attack and reappeared a few feet away. As the injured Gemian clenched his looked to his assailant, his eyes widened in shock, there standing before him was a figure in a pink jacket of sorts, and He was wearing a pink helmet shaped like a lion and was welding a large pink sword and a round pink shield, both of which looked a lot like Connie's weapons. Diamond then looked to where lion's body was and saw that the carcass was nowhere to be found. All that remained was a small patch of bloody grass and a crystal rose. Diamond then turned back to his attacker with a look of shock and to his own surprise, fear.

"No." Diamond whispered as he starred at the figure before him. "No…NO!"

As Diamond disappeared before the figure, he then turned to Pearl and knelt before her, placing his hand on her chest as he bowed his head. Suddenly, his hand began to glow and Pearl felt the burning in her body began to cease. As she watched the figure stand back up, she then realized whom it was, which caused her to well up with tears. Pearl then stood up and approached the figure hesitantly.

"I…I am sorry…" Pearl said quietly, wiping tears from her eyes as she tried to choose her words carefully, "I never meant to…to."

Pearl stopped as she felt the figure wrap around her in a tight hug, this was then followed by a simple response from the Figure that gave Pearl a strange feeling of reissuance and comfort:

"I forgive you."

Pearl smiled warmly as she embraced the hug for a few moments; she then broke off from the hug and repaired her clothing. As she turned back to the Figure, she watched as he removed his helmet, revealing his curly black hair.

"Do you know where we are off to?" Pearl asked the figure.

"Of course I do!" The Figure said with a smile as he looked to Pearl, summoning a portal before himself "We going see Connie."

As Pearl watched the Figure enter the portal, she smiled warmly as she felt fresh tears run down her face, only this time, these were tears of joy.

"Welcome back Steven." Pearl whispered to herself as she entered the portal and closed it behind her.

First was Topaz, carrying Connie within zir arms, then came Peridot, followed by Garnet and then Amethyst. As the Gems walked towards the temple, Garnet and Amethyst looked at a crater they were passing by; it was the same crater that was created from the Agate they fought a long time ago. Garnet bit her lip as she looked to the temple; the very sight reminded her of her failure to Steven and to Pearl. Amethyst noticed this and placed a hand on Garnet’s shoulder.

"Almost finished…." Pearl said to herself as she slowly inserted the final spark plug into the engine of her jury-rigged spacecraft. For a ship built out of spare parts and junk, it was really well built. As soon as Pearl inserted the sparkplug, the rocket came to life, Pearl's eyes beamed as she backed away from her creation, taking in the fruit of her labor with such awe.
"It's finished! I can't believe I did it, and all in a barn with a box of scraps!" Pearl cheered to herself, suddenly covering her mouth so she did not wake the two founder of "Universe & Universe," which were sleeping in a van next door. As Pearl was about to open the door, she felt a small burn on her cheek. When she looked in her reflection on the hull of her ship, she then remembered her Master.

Tribunal Temple, present day

As the van rushed out of the portal and came to a screeching halt before the temple, the Gems within it stepped outside. First was Topaz, carrying Connie within zir arms, then came Peridot, followed by Garnet and then Amethyst. As the Gems walked towards the temple, Garnet and Amethyst looked at a crater they were passing by; it was the same crater that was created from the Agate they fought a long time ago. Garnet bit her lip as she looked to the temple; the very sight reminded her of her failure to Steven and to Pearl. Amethyst noticed this and placed a hand on Garnet’s shoulder. Garnet looked to her Gem sister and then continued to walk to the temple.

As the Gems entered the Temple, Thorn, Spinel, and the other Gem refugees greeted them. Upon seeing Topaz, the Gems quickly bowed to their leader.

“There is no need for that at this time.” Topaz said as zie continued walking, “Where is Turquoise?”

Thorn rose from the floor and approached Topaz. As the Gemian looked into her eyes, zie knew what had happened.

“You combined your Vitae…” Topaz said as zie stepped before Thorn, zir brow furrowed in disbelief “Malachite, how could you do this, do you realize that what you have done is permanent?”

Thorn flinched at the Gem Master’s exclamation before speaking. “I...I hand no choice Master. Master Diamond attacked Venatio and killed both Turquoise and Sapphire; Azurite would have become an Agate if I did not intervene. I could not stand to see her as a mindless puppet.”

“As what I can tell, this form is no different.” Topaz said coldly as zie turn and walked away, leaving a distraught Thorn behind zir.

As Peridot looked to the crying Thorn and then to Topaz, he quickly rushed to his Creator, with Garnet and Amethyst tagging behind him.

The three Gems found Topaz in zir study, standing before zir desk. Topaz then turned his head lightly as the contents of zir desk were thrown off the table. Zie then placed Connie onto the table and stood back up. As Peridot approached Topaz, he could see tears running down zir face.

“Master Topaz?” Peridot said cautiously to the Gemian, choosing his words carefully, “Is she going to be all right?”

Topaz looked down at the Gem child before zir; zie could see her eyes were hollow and cold. Her face was without expression and her gaze was as if she was dead. Just the very sigh of her face caused fresh tears to run down Topaz’s cheeks.

“She is in so much pain, Emerald.” Topaz whispered, wiping the tears from zir eyes with zir hand “The trauma my brother gave to her has brought her into a catatonic state. I do not know if I can fix this.”

Peridot watched as Topaz placed zir hand over Connie’s forehead. He watched as a small yellow light began to flicker from zir hand onto Connie’s head. As soon as the light touched Connie, her chest rose up and she gasped lightly. Garnet and Amethyst watched in suspense as Connie’s body returned to its natural state and her eyes close.

“What did you do?” Amethyst shouted as she approached the Gemian, grabbing zir by zir suit and aiming her fist at zir. “TELL ME WHAT THE FUCK DID YOU DO?”

Peridot and Garnet quickly grabbed Amethyst and held her back, allowing the Gemian to continue his work.
“Let me go!” Amethyst shouted as the Gems pulled her back, “Zie’s hurting her.”

“No zie is not.” Peridot replied as he pulled the purple Gem towards him, “Zie is using a Gemian ability called Somnium Eo, it will allow Topaz to enter Connie’s mind and heal her. You have to trust zir.”

Amethyst glared angrily at Peridot as tears began to form in her eyes, “How the fuck am I supposed to do that? Every Gem I know is a traitor.” Amethyst said with a light scoff as she pulled herself free of Garnet and Peridot and slumped on to the floor, cupping her hands to her face. “Steven’s dead, Pearl is a traitor, how could she do this to us? We were a team for years. YEARS and all this time, she was…she…”

Garnet sat down and comforted her Gem sister, cringing at the thought that nine months ago she was a carefree Gem who barely took anything seriously. Now, it was almost if that carefree Gem was long gone.

As Peridot looked to the two Gems, he noticed Smoky approaching him; she had a small hesitant look on her face.

“Not is not a good time Smoky.” Peridot sighed, “Can you give is a few minutes? I will speak to you later.”

“I apologize Master,” Smoky said as she lightly bowed, “But this is urgent, it involves Beach City.”

The very mention of the city caused both Amethyst and Garnet to look to Smoky. Amethyst quickly rose up and grabbed the large Gem by the robe.

“What is it, what happened to Beach City?” Amethyst shouted as Garnet quickly grabbed her Gem sister away from Smoky.

“Well, one of our scouts reported that there was an attack on the city.” Smoky said to the three Gems, “It involved a small group of humans known as G.E.R.M.”

Peridot eyes widened at the mention of the name “They attacked beach city? Why would a group of humans attack a Gem fortress, it would be suicidal unless they had help from the inside.”

Smokey then looked to her right as she prepared her next words carefully, “Well…about that…um…I was meaning to tell you that…uh…Howlite is here for you. She had just arrived after helping liberate the humans of that city.

Peridot froze; a small smile began to grow on the Gem Master’s face.

“She is alive?” he whispered before hugging Smoky. “SHE IS ALIVE! OH THANK GEMIA!”

Garnet and Amethyst looked in confusion as Peridot broke form the hug and rushed away, eager to find the aforementioned Gem. As they looked to Smoky, her expression was a mix of joy and concern.

“What is wrong with Howlite?” Garnet asked the large Gem as she approached her.

“Well, after talking with her for some time, I have reason to believe that she has become….unstable.”

“Unstable?” Garnet replied with a confused look, “What do you mean by unstable?”

[*]

Tribunal Temple Training Room, present day

Master Diamond staggered back as he received a heavy punch in the face from another Gem. This Gem, which was known as Howlite, had silver hair with black highlights and white skin, with only the left side of her face, which appeared to be cracked. She had a grey gem on the back of her left hand that also appeared to be cracked. As she pulled back from the punch she had thrown, Diamond stood back up and held his jaw in his hand. Just then, a voice suddenly boomed in the room.

[CRITICAL IMPACT TO JAW…DAMAGE RECEIVED: BROKEN JAW…ESTIMATED DAMAGE PERCENT: 8%.]

Howlite grinned as she summoned her large battle-ax. Diamond then spat at the ground before summoning his mace and charging at Howlite. The cracked Gem quickly dogged the attack and slashed at Diamond, cutting into his back.

[LARGE CUT TO BACK OF TARGET…DAMAGED RECEIVED: CRITICAL CUT TO BACK…ESTIMATED DAMAGE PERCENT: 19%]

Diamond turned to Howlite as she brought up her ax. A large grin stretched across her face as her silver eyes widened. Diamond gritted his teeth as he brought up his mace and swung it towards her. As he did, the head of the mace detached and bolted at Howlite. The cracked Gem simply dogged each attack as Diamond flung his flail at her. However, Diamond then pulled his weapon back, causing the flail to swing back and smack his opponent in the head. Howlite staggered and knelt to the floor as Diamond retracted his mace and began to approach his target.

[LARGE IMPACT TO SKULL…DAMAGED RECEIVED: MODERATE CONCUSSION…ESTIMATED DAMAGE PERCENT: 23%...OPPONENT HAS RECEIVED AN OPENING.]

As Diamond stood above his victim, lifting his mace to give the finishing blow, he swung his weapon down upon the Gem before him, hearing a large clang as she quickly blocked the attack. Howlite looked up at Diamond with a wide-eyed grin, her head bleeding from Diamond’s earlier attack. She then quickly pushed forward, causing Diamond to fall back as his opponent began to rise up, as the Gems pushed against one another, Howlite finally used all her strength to spin her ax around and parry both her ax and Diamond’s mace out of their hands.

[BOTH PARTIES ARE DISARMED…PROBABILITY OF DEFEAT: 43%]

Howlite quickly pounced and tackled Diamond as she sat on top of him, with a large grin, her reached behind her back and pulled out a dagger. Diamond watched in horror as she lifted the dagger with both hands.

[TARGET HAS BEEN DEFEATED…DEFENDANT IS VICTORIOUS.]

The booming voice had no effect on Howlite as she let out a large shriek, plunging the dagger into Diamond’s chest. Diamond shouted and gurgled as Howlite stabbed the Gemian repeatedly. Howlite watched as her prey flicker from master Diamond to a crystal based figure. She then took her dagger and sliced it across the hologem’s neck. Slicing left and right until the head fell off. Howlite smiled as she picked up the head and pressed it to her forehead. As she did, she envisioned the Hologem’s head as that of Master Diamond, imaging herself looking into the dead eyes of the Gemian she desired to kill.

Howlite’s fantasy was cut short by the intrusion of a new voice, once that sounded very familiar.
“Howl?” said Peridot, who moments ago arrived to watch the spectacle before her.

Howlite turned to the green Gem beside her. As she looked into his eyes, she suddenly remembered who this Gem was to her. A smile crept on her face as she stood up, rushing over to the Gemian and embracing him with a large hug around her waist.

“Quartzy!” Howlite squeaked as she tightened her hug.

“It’s good to see you too.” Peridot said with a smile as he broke the hug and looked down to his friend. He immediately noticed her cracks and frowned at the sight. “What has happened to you? The last time I saw you, we were fighting on Insidiae.”

As soon as Peridot mentioned Insidiae, Howlite’s smile faded quickly, replaced with a large scowl towards the Gemian, Howlite then turned away from her master, fidgeting with the Hologem head in her hands.

“You left me to die on Insidiae, remember?” Howlite said with a flat tone, tracing the lines of the Hologem head with her fingers. “You left me to rot with those rogue Gems we were going to “save.”

“Howlite…” Peridot said, taken aback from his friend’s response, “I did not know that…I thought you were…”

“Dead?” Howlite said as she turned to Peridot. “No…No…I didn’t die, I never did. You knew this and you abandoned me!”

Peridot was speechless, he had no idea what had happened on Insidiae after he left, in fact, and no Gem knew what had happened on that Colony after the war. After what felt like hours, Peridot finally broke the silence.

“What happened on Insidiae Howl?” Peridot said hesitantly, trying to be careful and not enrage the already unstable Gem.

Howlite chuckled as she began to pace the training room. “What happened to me? What happened?” Howlite then glared at Peridot and chucked the Hologem head at him, missing the Gem master, and smashing against the wall.

“WHAT DO YOU THINK HAPPENED?” Howlite shrieked as she held her left hand over the cracked portion of her face.

Peridot gasped lightly as his head a hand up to his mouth. “What did Master Diam-"

“DON’T CALL HIM THAT!” Howlite screamed at Peridot, her face flustered as she held up her hands. “HOW DARE YOU CALL HIM “MASTER” AFTER ALL HE HAS DONE!”

Peridot was frozen; he did not know what to say, nor how to react. All he could do was watch as his friend paced the room angrily. She then turned back to Peridot with wide eyes and a half smile.
“You…you are just like Topaz and Rose. You claim that you understand but you do not. You think that just because we are lesser that we are just pawns to your little game of “King of the Universe. However, you do not know what happend at Insidiae. Sure, you fought there, but were you captured like the rest of us. Like me, like Hematite, do you even remember what happend to him?”

Peridot froze as he remembered about Hematite, Peridot’s second in command alongside Howlite. The very though cause Peridot to rub his hand over his eyes in guilt.

“But then what about poor Howl, the one that you assumed to be dead for years, when in reality she was alive, on Insidiae, the Gem Colony of “Monster Diamond”, who had been using the Colony as a laboratory to create a perfect army for himself. I saw what he was doing with my own eyes. What he did to Jade, Tourmaline, Alexandrite, all of them, I saw them tortured and warped into monsters, while the rest were placed into those Agate drones. As for me, I received some of the Monster’s “Special Treatment.””

“Howlite…” Peridot said as he placed a hand on the side of his head, “I didn’t know…”

Howlite gave Peridot a smile and shook her head lightly. “You didn’t know Peridot, you didn’t. While you were fighting on the front lines, did you even THINK of trying to rescuing me? All the years and not *once* did you even think of finding me? You did not care Peridot; all you cared about was to prove to Topaz that you were a worthy son. No matter how many Gems you sacrificed to prove it.”

“That is not true Howlite.” Peridot interjects, pointing his finger at the Gem before him, “I do not know what Diamond did to you, but he has warped your mind. I did not stop looking for you; even after the war ended, I ended up captured in a containment camp because I believed you were there. Not once did I put my life before you, or Hematite, or any other Gem. I am sorry for leaving you on Insidiae, but you need to know that I had no intention of abandoning you.”

Howlite glared at Peridot for what felt like hours, her expression then softened as her attention was focused on the headless Hologem lying on the floor. As she looked around the room, Peridot followed her gaze and noticed the surroundings as well. He looked in shock at the entirety of the training room that was littered with Hologems, many of which were torn apart and scattered some were barely recognizable. As he watched Howlite walk around the room, he noticed her expression was warm and satisfied, as if she had completed a lifelong task she always wanted to finish. Just then, one of the Hologems, one which was pinned to the wall and was missing it’s lower legs and left arm, Sprung to life and startled the two Gems before it. As it reached for them, it transformed into the image of Master Diamond, only missing his left arm and legs.

[SEVER DAMAGE TO TARGET…DAMAGED RECEIVED: LOSS OF LEGS AND LEFT ARM…TARGET IS CRIPPLED AND DEFENSELESS…DEFENDANT IS VICTORIOUS]

Howlite looked down and scooped up a large shard of holocrystal, clutching it like a dagger as she stormed up to the wounded Gemian. As she looked into his eyes, she jabbed the shard into his chest. Diamond gasped loudly as Howlite dug the shard in deeper.

[IMPACT TO HEART…DAMAGED RECEIVED: INTERNAL BLEEDING…TARGET IS WOUNDED FATALLY…DEFENDANT IS VICTORIOUS]

Howlite pulled the shard out of Diamond’s chest and examined it, looking at the shard that was coated in blue blood. The Hologems were designed to mimic their chosen avatars to the letter. This meant that attacking a hologem that took the guise of Master Diamond was supposed to be like attacking the real Diamond. Peridot watched as Howlite turned her attention back to the Gemian before her.


“Why did you do this?” Howlite asked Master Diamond
Diamond responded with a grunt before being stabbed again with the shard

“Why did you do this?” Howlite asked again as she pulled the shard out and plunged it back into Diamond’s chest.

Peridot watched with horror as Howlite continued to stab Diamond repeatedly. As she continued, her stabs became more and more erratic, until she was simply stabbing random points of his body.

Peridot slowly walked up to his friend, still stabbing her shard into the body of the Hologem. Peridot finally grabbed Howlite’s arms as she was about to plunge the shard again. He noticed that from clenching the shard too tight, her hand was bleeding from the cuts. As Howlite looked to Peridot, he saw her eyes pouring with tears.

“Howlite…” Peridot whispered in a saddened tone “What in Rose’s name did he do to you?”

Howlite looked down to the floor before breaking her grip from Peridot, and plunging her shard into the head of Holo-Diamond. As the hologem deactivated, she looked back to Peridot, and stormed out of the training room.

Peridot watched as she left the room and sighed, he then looked back at the hologem and furrowed his brow.

“I promise Howlite, I promise that we will stop him. We will bring that…monster…to justice.”

Crystal Catacombs: Heart Chamber, present day

Diamond stood before the Crystal heart, feeling the energy flowing from the large artifact before him. Diamond them opened the front of his robe, exposing his bare chest. He then placed his hands before his chest and a large black serpent emerged from his chest. The Serpent looked around the chamber and hissed before turning towards the Crystal Heart, and then to Diamond.

“Pristis! Custodire mandata mea!” Diamond said to the serpent, “Concedo tibi cor Gemia enim ad vescendum, et revertimini ad antiquitatem vestram gloriam!”

The serpent hissed before turning back to the heart, suddenly, it shot out of Diamond’s chest and burrowed itself into the heart, causing the heart to turn into a much darker color. Diamond could see the serpent inside the heart, Curled up in the center like an infant in their mother’s womb. As he relished in the though, he felt the presence of another behind him. Diamond then turned to see Lion standing behind him, his expression as solemn as Diamond’s.

“Ah, the familiar of Rose.” Diamond said to lion, “I was wondering what happened to you, perhaps my servant was not as effective with your demise as she told me. But that does not answer the question as to why you are here?”

“Because I brought him here.” A voice said to Diamond.

Diamond turned to the direction of the voice to see his sister, Rose Quartz, walking into the room. She approached Diamond and brushed his mane.

“You are still as much of a nuisance dead as you were alive, little sister.” Diamond hissed in anger, the very presence of Rose was enough to irritate him. “You and that creature of yours have no place here.”

“You forget brother, that this is my home” Rose said as she turned to Diamond with a smile “You did turn our homeworld into your personal experiment for the Leviathan.” She then tilted her body to examine the Crystal Heart. “Which I can see you used our own mother’s heart as an incubator.”
Diamond stood up in front of Rose, towering over her as he glared downward to her. “Why are you so persistent in allowing corruption to conquer this Universe? Are you that naive to the truth?”

Rose looked up to Diamond and smiled, “When you created my Room from your own emotions, I was able to realize that it was your idea of a perfect Universe. A Universe where the one in control would be able to get and do whatever they wanted and that everyone else obeyed his commands. However, as I used the room, I found it had a hidden purpose, it would not only give you what you wanted, but also what you needed.”

Diamond scowled as she continued her remarks, her words reminded him of the very emotion he despised: love.

“Diamond, I know you want me to hate you, that when I do, you will be free of your love for me. All I can say is that I will never stop loving you. I love you because you are my brother, You and Topaz are my family, You may have killed my husband and son, butchered my successor, killed my grandchildren, and destroyed my home, but I will not hate you. Topaz may hate you, but I will not, and some day, when you ask me for forgiveness for your sins, I will be there to accept them. Nevertheless, all I ask of you is to stop this madness. This Universe may not be the one you want but it is the one we need.”

Diamond looked down to his sister, as he glared into her warm smile; he felt tears form into his eyes. Rose saw as his eyes changed color from red to grey as he sunk down and hugged his little sister. As she embraced his hug, she felt as he wept upon her shoulder.

“I know that what I have done cannot be forgiven.” Diamond said as he broke of the hug and turned to the Crystal Heart, “But when I fix this Universe, then such problems will become a forgotten memory.

Rose frowned in disappointment as she approached lion, whispering something to him before he disappeared into a portal. Diamond immediately turned towards Rose, his eyes returned to molten red as he stormed towards the Rose Gem.

“Where have you sent him?” Diamond hissed at Rose, “Why was he here?”

Rose simply smiled as her brother, “He was here because of his intended purpose.” Rose explained, “Did you forget that our familiars have the ability to revive us should we fall?”

Diamond scowled as he bent down to look Rose in the face, “How clever of you, but I know for a fact that you cannot bring yourself to kill me.”

Rose smile faded slightly as she looked down to the floor, “That is true, although you need to be stopped; I could never bring myself to kill you. It would go against everything I stand for as a Tribunal…”

“…but he will not have the same problem.”

Diamond furrowed his brow in confusion, before he could respond to Rose, a though sparked in his head, If Lion was meant to revive a Tribunal, and if Rose was unable to go, then…

Rose looked up to see Diamond’s face turn pale, his eyes filling up with Rage, along with another emotion he despised: fear.

“No…” Diamond whispered as he stood back up, walking back a few steps away from his sister. He glared at Rose until He gritted his teeth in anger.

“VESTIBULUM!” Diamond roared as he disappeared in a blinding flash of light. Rose then turned back to the Crystal Heart and watched as the black serpent inside twitched like a fetus in the womb.

“I am sorry for the pain he caused you, and the betrayal he made you endure.” Rose said as she opened a pink doorway, “But I know that everything I have taught you in our short time together will be enough to stop him.” Rose then proceeded to walk into the portal, but stopped halfway and turned back to look at the ceiling of the chamber.

“Take care filium meum, she will need you now more than ever, and I want you to know that your father and I will pray for you.”

With that, Rose entered the doorway and closed it behind her.

Arlington National Cemetery, present day
There was a bang and a flash as the van slid from lion’s portal and into the streets of the cemetery, the Gems looked around as they saw the hundreds of gravestones, each marking the sign of one who had passed on. The whole area was cold and crisp with death. The Gems soon drove to a large hill with a larger monument on top of it. From van, the Gems could see a lone guard patrolling the tomb.
“Alright so here is the plan,” Peridot explained to the rest of the Gems, I will create a diversion, while Garnet and Amethyst will hold off the reinforcements. This will give enough time for Connie to break open the tomb and acquire Topaz.”
Connie gave Peridot an expression of horror. “You want me to destroy a artifact? A artifact, I mind you, I used in my American History class? Forget

Beach City High School, present day
Connie sat at her desk as she waited for the teacher to begin his lesson, as she waited, her listened to the chatter of the classmates as they laughed and shouted at each other, boasting about small things that would be forgotten. She smiled as she looked out the window, the sun was shining, and there was not a single cloud in the sky. This has been the perfect day of her life so far. Aside from a small stomachache, nothing could ruin this day. Her moment of bliss was interrupted by the sound of a door opening as a man with blond hair and a blue suit entered the classroom. As he approached the desk, he placed the briefcase in his hand onto the table and then turned his attention to the class.
"Alright students, settle down now." The teacher said to the students, who quickly returned to their seats and stared at

Chapter 2: Invasion of the Gem Snatchers

[*]

Maheswaran Household, present day

It was quiet at the Maheswaran household; Connie was eating dinner with her family as she normally would. She always found a sense of peace when it came to her family that no matter what had happened they were there for her. After the whole crisis was over, Connie's dad, once a security guard named Omar, was now the chief of security for Mayor Dewy. As for Connie's mother Sarah, she found a job as an assistant manager at Fish Stew Pizza. Knowing that they could not move away due to Connie's new problems, they decided, much to their concern, to stay for Connie's sake.

"So Connie," Sarah said as she passed a bowl of mashed potatoes to her daughter. "How did your training go today?"

"You mean her death wish…" Omar muttered under his breath.

Sarah glared at her husband before exclaiming his name. Omar quickly rose his hands up in defense.

"May I remind you that this is our daughter we are talking about, Our PREGNANT daughter? Who thinks it alright to train a pregnant woman in combat, A bunch of psychopaths that's who!"

Sarah scoffed and pointed at Omar "They know what they're doing Omar, they would not be having Connie go through this without a good reason. Why are you so cynical about this?"

Omar slammed his hands on the table in anger "Have you forgotten what happened to that Steven boy and his father? Those same Gems butchered them into pieces. Not to mention tormented our daughter, or have you thought the therapy was just for fun?"

Connie, ignoring the yelling of her parents, got up from the table and walked into her bedroom. As she sat on the bed and sighed, she could still hear the sound of her parents arguing with each other. Connie then slumped onto her bed with her face to the ceiling. As she did, she looked down at her stomach, which was now slightly bulging. It was amazing how Connie was dealing with this; even before her transformation into a Gem, she had no symptoms of pregnancy. Not even morning sickness, it almost as if she was not pregnant at all.

"I'm sorry to put you through all of this." Connie said to her child, "I never intended to put you through this entire gunk. I just wish Steven were here, it would make things so much easier."

With that, she closed her door, slipped into her pajamas and climbed into her bed to fall asleep; hoping that tomorrow would be a better day.

[*]

Beach City Exterior, present day

The small town of Beach City was quiet, the majority of the small community was asleep, and the streets were lifeless. Little did the citizens know, that watching above on a rooftop were two figures in grey cloaks. As they both gazed upon the city, the figure on the right, a white haired woman, unhooded herself and knelt down to survey her location.

"You know I would think that our Gem sisters would choose a place that was more…lively." Zirconia said with a tone of disappointment as she watched a young boy leaving the arcade with a large bag of tokens. "Then again you didn't have much of a say in the matter didn't you?"

The hooded figure responded with a light nod. Zirconia then noticed the figures white hands clench. Zirconia rose up and faced the figure, patting her hand on the figure's shoulder in a comforting and sarcastic manner.

"Oh come on, think of this as somewhat of a reunion." Zirconia chuckled, "Besides, I will finally meet your other half, it should be quite the family reunion, won't it…Mother?"

As Zirconia walked away from the figure and jumped off the rooftop, the figure turned to the direction of the temple. She then unhooded herself and gazed upon the temple with a cold, black shot stare.

"Yes," Vestibulum said sternly as she felt obsidian tears roll down her face. "Yes it will."

[*]

Mayor Dewy's Office, present day

Mayor Dewy was sitting in his office as usual, on the phone with someone called "Lucy Lead Pipe." A picture of his family say beside him as he unbuckled his trousers and continued to listen to the tranny on the phone, showing that this man had no sense of respect nor morals. As he asked her questions about her "organic pipe," he heard a knock on the door.

"Hey uh, could you come back later" Dewy said as he covered the phone with his hand, "I am having an important meeting with a representative and I cannot be disturbed….for the next ten minutes."

"Sir, it is urgent," a woman's voice said from behind the door, "It's someone saying that they work for "Master."

Dewey's stomach sunk, without hesitation, he hung up the phone and buckled up his trousers.

"S-s-s-send her in." Dewey said nervously.

As the door opened and Zirconia walked in, two Agate drones followed behind her. As she sat in the chair across from Dewey, the Agates hovered next to him. Dewey was now sweating bullets, knowing that this might end in a way he did not want it to end.

"Hello Mr. Mayor," Zirconia said warmly, "I am glad to see that you were able to break away from your infidelity to make time for me."

"Of c-c-course Zirconia" Dewey said with a shudder, "Now, we built that vault for the Master already, right where he asked us to, and I have been keeping track on the Gem's actions and movements as I always have. Is there anythi-

"Shut up!" Zirconia barked to the Mayor "You know why I am here; the Master would like to thank you for your hospitality for the past few years, for allowing him to proceed with his plans without obstructions and for providing hospitality for our troops.

Dewey smiled as he wiped his head with his sleeve. However, as he looked up and saw the door open again; his smile vanished as he saw Zirconia now crouched on the desk before him, her hand moving to the base of his neck.

"But I am afraid that your uses to our cause have run their course, and Master does not like to leave behind any…loose ends."

Dewy began to panic, "Wait Zirconia, I still have money and power. I know many people who you could use as servants. Governors, Generals, anyone he wants. Please, I have been so loyal to him. I did everything he asked me t-"

*crack*

Zirconia watched as Dewey's head fell onto the desk, smashing his family picture.

"I know you did," Zirconia said mockingly, "But just like Master said, in a game of chess, you must sacrifice the pawns to win."

As she let go of Dewey's body, she pushed his lifeless corpse aside and sat down onto his desk. Relishing the thought of controlling this city, she looked to the Agate's beside her.

"Go and assemble the others," Zirconia said with a smile "rip this city apart until you find the girl. Then bring her to me, alive if possible."

The Agate's nodded as they hovered out the doorway. As they did, Zirconia tuned her chair around and gazed out into the sleeping city, knowing that in a few minutes, it would be time to walk it up.

[*]

Maheswaran Household, present day

Connie woke up to the sound of banging, as she rose up from her bed, she quickly put on her coat and walked towards the door. As she was about to open the door, she heard her parents talking from the other side. They seemed to be talking to someone else.

"Look, just tell us why you need to speak with our daughter?" Omar said in a concerned tone, "I am a police officer and I work for Mayor Dewey, I am sure whatever my daughter did is a misunderstanding.

"[YOUR DAUGHTER HAS BEEN CHARGED WITH THEFT AND HIGH TREASON…THIS UNIT ADVISES YOU TO ALLOW THIS UNIT TO COMPLETE IT'S DIRECTIVE…FAILURE TO COMPLY WILL LEAD TO FORCEFUL ACTION BY THIS UNIT.]"

Connie recognized the voice of the "guest", it was the same voice as that strange robot she fought to the Tribunal Temple long ago. As she opened her door by a crack to look onward, she saw her father in the hallway, blocking the Agate drone from moving on.

"But you still haven't told me what she stole!" Omar said to the Agate, "Do you even have proof that she stole anything? Do you even have a warrant?"

The Agate's lens switched to a yellow color as it stared at the human blocking its path "[THIS IS YOUR FINAL WARNING ORGANIC…COMPLY WITH THE SEARCH OR THIS UNIT WILL USE FORCEFUL ACTION.]" then the Agate tilted its body, noticing the small eye peeking out from the door. Omar then turned as well, seeing his daughter watching from beyond. Choosing his actions carefully he mouthed the words "run" and football tackled the Agate. Connie was about to charge in when she heard her mother's scream, followed by two more Agates entering the hallway, one of which had the body of her mother pinned through the chest.

As Connie screamed, Omar rose up and pulled his baton from his belt, knowing that his preparation for any form of attack would finally pay off.

"Connie! Get to the Gems and get out of here! GO!" Omar shouted as he struck the Agates, allowing enough time to let his daughter escape.

Connie quickly shut the door and locked it; she then grabbed her dresser and pushed it in front of the door to block it. As soon as she unlocked the door, she heard her father's screams followed by a large wet thud. At that moment, Connie froze in horror, crouching down with the realization that her parents were now dead. As she felt tears roll down her face, she regained focus as she heard the sound of the Agate's trying to break down the door. Connie quickly jumped on her bed and opened her window. As she squirmed through and attempted to climb down the wall of her house, her hand slipped and she fell onto the ground below. As she lay on her back disoriented by the fall, she saw three Agates hovering above her. She tried to summon her weapon, but it was no use, she was too disorientated to concentrate.

"[CONTACTING MASTER ZIRCONIA…THE GEM THIEF HAS BEEN CAPTURED…THIS UNIT WILL TAKE THE GEM THIEF TO MASTER ZIRCONIA AND MASTER VESTIBULUM….THE OTHER UNITS WILL PROCEED TO SUBJUGATE THE ORGANICS AND LOCATE THE OTHER GEMS.]"

Connie tried to resist their grasp but was too disoriented to fight it. As the Agate lifted her up, Connie vison blurred before everything turned to black.

[*]

Connie woke to the sound of panicking voices. As she came to, she saw she was moving toward the City Hall. As she looked around, she saw in horror as hundreds of Agates were breaking into homes and rounding up the citizens. Buildings and homes were ablaze and destroyed. There were bodies all over the streets. Connie saw as a young boy known as Onion was sitting next to his father's corpse as an Agate came towards him.

[ORGANIC, PLEASE STAND UP AND RETURN TO THE GROUP…FAILURE TO COMPLY WILL LE-]

Onion suddenly pounced onto the Agate's head, Connie watched in horror as the Agate simply fired a red laser from its lens, blowing off Onion's head and causing his twitching body to fall next to his father. The Agate hovered away without remorse, dragging the bodies of Onion and his father behind them.

As Connie choked at the sight, her attention returned to the now present City Hall. As Connie was brought into the building, she could see Agates and crystal technology everywhere. As Connie glanced down a hallway, she saw people lined up at a table, under the watch of Agates, as they were forcing citizens to build strange looking pods.

Connie was then brought into the office of the late Mayor Dewey, whose office was now occupied by his immanent successor, Zirconia.

"Hello Connie, it's nice to finally meet you." The white haired Gem said to her captive as she walked up to her, "Do you like what I have done to the place? I think I have done a grand job, don't you?"

Connie gritted her teeth at Zirconia before spitting in her face; this resulted in a sharp slap in the face by Zirconia.

"I was told that you humans were lacking in the concept of manners." Zirconia said while wiping her face, "It doesn't matter though, once The Master deals with you it won't make a difference. However, if you tell me the location of Garnet and Amethyst, I might make sure your trial is painless."

"Why did you attack Beach City?" Connie asked as she tried to release herself from her Agate captor, "Why enslave all of them? WHY KILL MY FAMILY?"

Zirconia smiled as she bent down to whisper into Connie's ear.

"It's because I need to break you."

As Zirconia moved away from her captive, Connie looked in confusion at what Zirconia meant by breaking her.

"Vitae is the life force of a Crystal Gem, it's the source of a Gem's power and grants them immortality and divine powers." Zirconia said as she looked out the window. "However, The Master knows how to extract it and use it for his own well-being. To extract the most at a time however, the subject must be in the highest state of agony and pain. This is because the process of producing Vitae is much like the production of endorphins, once the subject is at a certain level of pain, and suffering, they will be ripe for consumption."

Zirconia then turned to Connie and gave a large grin "Which is why I am giving the job to an old friend of yours." Zirconia then gestured to the door behind them as the Agate made Connie turn to see the figure behind them. "She has been waiting to catch up with you, just like old times."

"No…" Connie whispered as she saw the sight before her.

There standing in the doorway, was a tall gem with a long nose and pale skin. One of her eyes was milky white and scarred while the other was black shot and trickling obsidian fluid. She was wearing a grey and black variant of her original dress but with a back diamond in place of the yellow star. To Obsidian, she was known as Vestibulum, but to the Crystal Gems and Connie she was known as…

"Pearl?"

Pearl looked down at her captive and smiled warmly at her old friend.

"Hello Connie, it's been a while hasn't it? My my, you have grown since the last time we meet."

Connie glared at Pearl while trying to break free of the Agates. She then noticed one of the Agates behind Pearl looked far different from the rest. It was purple and grey and its lens was white with a black dot in the middle. Her attention was brought back to Pearl as the Gem grabbed her face and examined it. Pearl then traced her hand down to Connie's stomach.

"I can sense her Connie." Pearl said with a smile, "I am surprised you haven't been affected by the ailments basic organics endure during such a cycle. It seems as if you were not pregnant at all. Perhaps your body is adjusting to the Gem magic. Just like Steven."

Connie then watched as the purple Agate slowly moved behind Pearl. Pearl then noticed Connie's expression and turned to see the Agate, who then stuck out its tongue before decking Pearl in the face.

"This unit is now authorized to kick your backstabbing ass, bitch!" The agate yelled as it transformed into Amethyst, "GARNET, NOW!"

Just then, there was the sound of a car horn, followed by a loud and violent crash as a large van drove right through the office. It looked like the van that Greg used to own, only that it had a small light cannon attached to the roof. As it stopped inside the building, the back door opened and Garnet jumped out, smashing two Agates onto the floor before facing Pearl and Zirconia.

"Oh look, its mommy." Zirconia said in a mocking tone "Looks like the family is all back together.

"What are you talking about?" Garnet said to the white haired Gem before facing her former Gem sister, "Who is she?"

Pearl responded by pouncing at Garnet, only to be shot back by the light cannon. As Zirconia looked to Garnet and then to Amethyst moving Connie onto the van, she ran out of the hole and began to wave her hands to the city.

"The Gems are here!" Zirconia shouted to the Agates within the city, "Get them!"

The Gems watched in horror as a large cloud of Agates began to swarm towards them like locust. Without another word, the Gem entered the Van and garnet floored it, sending the van through the city hall and out into the streets. Amethyst and Connie looked outside and saw the swarm grow closer and closer. The light cannon was very effective with repelling a few Agates, but it was not enough for an entire swarm.

"Garnet" Amethyst said in a worried tone, "Not that there is any pressure and you can answer at any time but, DO YOU HAVE A BACK UP PLAN?"

Garnet looked back to her Gems before pulling on a rope attached to the ceiling of the van. As she did, the light cannon fell off the van and fell to the ground.

Amethyst looked at the cannon, then the swarm, and then Garnet. "Okay, how about a plan that's not crazy or stupid?"

As Garnet smiled, she touched her palm Gem with her thumb. As she did, the cannon began to glow brightly, pulling in the Agates like a magnet to metal shavings. Suddenly, there was a blinding light and a deafening roar. The ground shook and the van nearly turned over. As Amethyst and Connie looked back, they saw the large funnel cloud of smoke rise up into the air. As the Gems cheered at their victory, Connie gasped as she saw the ruins of Beach city in the distance; she could see the smoke rising from the buildings, thinking about the people that she considered friends and how would they survive. As she watched as the city vanished into the distance. She turned to Amethyst, who gave her a look of both relief and sympathy. Connie tried to speak, but only found herself breaking down into hard sobs. The purple Gem wrapped her hands around her as she looked to the descending road, the smoke filling up the grey skies above, an omen for the terrible force that would come.

Unknown Water Planet, present day

The water was peaceful and tranquil, silent and calm Not a single drop of land was in sight. As the water sat calm and undisturbed, there was a large wake as a swarm of Agates flew across the sky, scanning the ocean below.

"[THIS UNIT WILL CONTINUE TO SEARCH SECTION 11.32. OTHER UNITS WILL SEARCH 332.3, 77, 12, 34.5, AND 7654.3338.]"

Just as the agates began to split up, the water below them suddenly rose up into a huge column. Swallowing the Agates and dragging them to the watery depths below. In the distance, a blue gem by the name of Lapis Lazuli was hiding beneath the water as she watched the spectacle occur. She sighed with relief as she saw the Agates vanish beneath, unaware that she was being watched as well.

Suddenly, she felt a powerful current force her above the water and into the air. As she spun around in the sky, she then saw four Agates surround her. In between them, were a Gem with Grey skin, black, half-shaved hair, and a black suit with a grey triangle in the center, she smiled as she made eye contact with Lapis.

"Who are you?" the water Gem exclaimed as she tried to break free of the Agates, "Are you another Gem sent to capture me?"

The Gem raised an eyebrow in surprise. "Why yes, my name is Onyx, and I am here for you. Master wanted me to specifically you." She said with a small laugh, "Seeing how you single handedly wiped out his forces, I am not surprised."

"Master?" Lapis said in confusion, "What is happening, where is Master Topaz?"

Onyx sniggered as she floated back to her Agates, "She knows nothing doesn't she?" she said to one of them, "Why is she so important again?

"[IDENTIFICATION: LAPIS LAZULI … CLASSIFICATION: PERTURBATIO…..GEM TYPE: TRIBUNALIS….WEAPON TYPE: LIQUID MANIPULATION….THREAT LEVEL: SEVERE…ADDITIONAL INPUT: THIS GEM WAS KNOWN AS THE SECOND IN COMMAND TO MASTER TOPAZ DURING ZIS REBELLION...ERROR:GEM TYPE IS IMPOSSIBLE]"

"I see…" Onyx smiled as she lifted her hands and summoned a onyx sword. She then turned to Lapis and pointed it at her. "Master will definitely be expecting you then, let's not keep him waiting"

Before Lapis could respond, she felt a beam of black energy pierce her chest, causing her to transform into a blue Gemstone. Onyx then floated towards it and clutched it in her hands, as a smile grew on her face; she then felt burning tears streaming down her face. Instantly knowing what that meant, she turned to see Master Diamond standing before her.

"Præceptor" the Gem responded as she knelt before him, the Gem of Lapis held out towards him "I have the Gem known as Lapis Lazuli, she will no longer be a threat to your plan."

Diamond took the Gem and examined it; reminded of the trouble she had once caused him millennia ago with the destruction of his Gem Colony known as Atlantis.

"It seems you had found a way to escape my prison." Diamond said to the Gem, "I can see why Topaz took a liking to you and I can also see why you were...Nevertheless, you will find that I will not be so kind, especially to traitors."

Diamond then clenched the Gem and watched the Vitae drain from it into himself, causing the crystal to become opaque. He then placed the Gem into his pocket and lifted his hand into the air, causing the group of Agates, which were submerged into the water below, to shoot up into the sky.

"You have done well with following my tasks Onychinos, you have truly proven your loyalty and efficiency to me."

"Thank you Master." Onyx said as she stood up before the Gemian God before her. "I also believe that my daughter and granddaughter have been failing you?"

Diamond turned to face the sky above him, "There failures have become a problem, not only have they allowed the Vitae of my sister Rose to reincarnate thrice over, but now the little thief has escaped and is now searching for my sibling Topaz."

"That means you will want me to stop them?" Onyx replied as she moved next to Diamond.

As Diamond was about to speak, he paused and placed his hand on his chin. "No, not yet." Diamond said as he looked down to the water below him. "Not until they find Topaz, then you will inform me and then stop them. But before you do, I have one task for you to do first."

"Of course Master." Onyx said with a smile, "What is my task."

Diamond turned to his servant and looked down to her before answering her question with one of his own.

"Do you remember the technique "Mortalia Larva?"

Open Road, 3 days later
Silence, that is what filled the air as the Gem drove on the road. No one spoke or made a single sound other than the occasional sneeze or cough. It had been three days since the attack on beach city, three days since the Gems left the temple and their friends behind to escape Obsidian. Garnet kept her eyes on the road as she drove, making sure that there was not anyone or anything of suspicion following them. The road stretched for miles, passing through forests and fields and small towns. The occasional car would pass by, but it was nothing serious at this time. Garnet looked in the rear mirror at Connie and Amethyst, who were sound asleep. As she looked back to the road, a though continued to linger in her head.
“Why did that Gem call me mommy?” she thought to herself, thinking of all of the possibilities. She knew that

Chapter 1: Interview with a False-Gem

[*]

Dr. Singmud Fraud's office, present day

"…and how has the experience changed your life Mrs.…Universe?" Dr. Fraud in said as he looked up from his clipboard.

"I…don't know sometimes." Connie said as she cupped her hands together, "To me it feels like hours when I know that it has been months since…."

"That day?" Dr. Fraud responded.

"Yeah…that damned day…"

Meet Connie Maheswaran Universe, this is a girl who was known to enjoy reading books, playing tennis, and trying to fit in with everyone else. A few years ago, she encountered a young boy named Steven. As the two began to grow into adulthood, their relation began to grow as well. This eventually led to the night that changed everything forever. One little mistake led to Connie becoming pregnant to Steven's child. Despite what had happened, a far more sinister plan was in motion, a plan that led to the death of Steven and the transferring of his powers to Connie.

"Do not worry Carrie, seeing how you have been managing this; I think you will be just fine." Dr. Fraud then stood up and quickly escorted the young Gem out of the room, slamming the door behind her. As Connie looked at the clinic door, she made an irritated grunt as she began to walk to the large temple in the distance.

It has been four months since that fateful week. With Harold Smiley's death, the management of Funland was given to Lars's dad to manage. Connie walked past the "It's a Wash" carwash, stopping to examine the abandoned structure. As she placed her hand on one of the cracked walls, she heard the sound of laughter and turned to the source of that sound. As she did, she saw a young boy with curly brown hair, spraying his father, a larger man who was balding and had a bit of a tan, with a hose. As the two of them laughed in joy, they looked to Connie and waved at her. Connie's eyes poured out with Tears as she saw the sight.

"Perhaps this is all a dream and all I need to do is wake up. Then everything will be back to normal" Connie thought to herself as she rubbed her eyes. But as she looked up, the boy and his father where gone.

Connie sighed as she continued to walk to the temple, not noticing the large growling creature that was following her. As she reached the beachside, Connie stopped and began to look around. As she slowly turned her head, she heard a large roar from behind her and quickly turned to defend herself, only to find her back on the sandy beach and a large pink animal licking her face. It was lion, the Gem animal that was known for doing weird things and for saving Connie's life. As Lion continued to lick her like a dog, Connie could help but laugh.

"Okay! Okay! Down boy!" Connie laughed as she pushed Lion off "I am happy to see you too."

Lion then sat up and groaned at his master before noticing Connie crouched before him. As Lion tilted his head in semi-concern, Connie then pounced at the Gem beast, trying to knock the creature down in a pointless effort. As she locked her hands around his mane, Lion stood up and began to walk up to the Temple. When they were at the doorstep, lion shook Connie loose from his mane, dropping Connie with a thud.

"Thanks a bunch Lion." Connie said sarcastically as Lion replied with a growl.

As Connie walked to the door, she looked up to the temple. It has been months and yet, she still is not used to the idea of living with the Crystal Gems, let alone living in the same place that...no, she knew the responsibilities outweighed the fears. Not to mention with the possibility of Diamond making a move, this was the only option to ensure proper protection.

"Today is the day lion" Connie said to the creature beside her, "Today, I become a Crystal Gem."

Lion looked at Connie with a bland expression a he turned and jumped up the temple. As Connie watched him climb to the top, Connie looked at her hand on the knob, took a deep breath, and opened the door.

Gem Colony Venatio, present day

"GET MOVING GEMS! WE DON'T HAVE MUCH TIME!" A large six armed Gem with a turquoise stone over his eyes yelled as she looked up to the sky.

Since the Gem civil war, colonies like this were used to house and protect Crystal Gems that lost their planets to war or disasters. Venatio, a Gem Colony in the Thesia System, was known for not only being the largest of the Colonies in the Universe, but also for housing billions of Gems. However, this Colony's purpose was to be tested. The Leader of the Colony, a Gem known as Turquoise, with the help of her Gems Azurite, Malachite, and Sapphire, was already making preparation to evacuate as many Gems as possible while at the same time use the colony's defenses to repel the incoming invasion.

"Azurite, are you there?" Turquoise said as she armed a row of light-cannons, "How are the defenses on the east side?"

"This is Malachite, Azurite has the west side covered, Sapphire has the north, and I have the east side." Malachite responded in her sister stead "Do you think this will work, we don't even know who is attacking?"

"It will work, my sister." The six-armed Gem said as she heard a bellowing horn and saw the sky turn blood red, "it has to work."

Within moments, the sky filled up with large black clouds, as the clouds floated down to the colony, Turquois saw that they were not ordinary clouds, but groupings of Agate drones, it was at that moment Turquoise realized who was behind this invasion.

Turquois then turned to a large crystal panel and slammed her hand on it causing a large alarm to engage followed by the light cannons beside her to target and fire at the clouds. As the cannon's blast hit one of the clouds, it dispersed into thousands of Agates, which began to swarm the Colony. Turquois watched in horror as she saw Gem after Gem torn apart by the merciless robots, not noticing the figure that quickly stabbed her in the lower back with a Katar. Turquois let out a shout of agony as she summoned her long swords, only to stumble over from the stab to her spine. As she looked, up at her assailant, a white haired Gem with two Katars and a sinister grin on her face, she recognized her as Zirconia, one of Diamond's personal servants.

She tried to move away from the Gem before, but her legs were paralyzed, preventing her from escaping. As she tried to strike Zirconia, two Agates quickly appeared and grasped her arms, electrocuting her and forcing her to subdue. As the Agates lifted her in front of the white haired Gem, she traced her hand over Turquois's Gem and made a smile.

"This one will do, her Vitae is quite powerful." Zirconia then turned to the doorway behind them "Isn't it…Father?"

Turquoise watched in horror as a tall Gem entered the room. His hair silver like a blade, his eyes piercing and cold, and his very presence created a feeling of fear and inferiority. It was Master Diamond, once the leader of the Crystal Gems and now the Leader of Obsidian, the so-called "New Universal Order." As he looked at the Gem before him, he turned to Zirconia and struck her across the face. As she turned back to him, she made a small smile.

"I mean, Master." Zirconia replied as she wiped blood from her mouth.

Diamond then turned back to Turquoise and clasped his hand on her face, moving her head around to examine her features.

"I am impressed with how you have handled things so far Turquoise, you are still as calculated and intelligent as the day you joined the Guardians and your dedication to the defense of this colony and its inhabitants is admirable. However, that does not change the fact that I am still disappointed still by your treason to our order."

Turquoise shook Diamond's grip as she glared at the Gem Master before her, "I'm the traitor? What about you "Master" Diamond? What do you call all of this? What do you call the mass slaughter of the very Gems who stood by the ideal of protecting the Universe?"

Diamond then placed his arms behind his back as he walked over to the window. As he looked at the Gems fighting against his army of Agates, he replied to his captive.

"Restoration my Gem, I call it restoration"

Turquoise looked at the Master in confusion, as she did, Diamond turned back and once again stood before her, his hands still behind his back.

"In the millennia we have spent protecting the Universe, my siblings and I formed the Crystal Guardians. However, as time went on we developed our own ideals of how we should protect the Universe. Rose wanted to help everyone and everything, and Topaz wanted to protect the Universe only from Gem based threats. While their intentions were pure, they did not see the truth as I did. For you see, the true threat is not what is attacking the Universe but the Universe itself."

Turquoise looked at Diamond in confusion, "So that's your plan? You're going to destroy the Universe?"

"No Turquoise," Diamond replied, "I am going to save it."

Diamond then waved his hand and the Agates released Turquoise, dropping her to the floor. As the Gem tried to crawl to her weapon, a katar pinned her hand to the floor. As Turquois yelped in pain, she used her free hands to remove the katar. However, as soon as she tried to throw it at Diamond, the Agates quickly grabbed her again and held her to the wall. Diamond then turned and stood before her, shaking his head slightly as he focused his attention on Zirconia, who was deactivating the cannons.

"Why are you doing this to us?" Turquois asked weakly to Diamond, "Why destroy us?"

"Because you have become corrupt." Diamond replied, "To ensure that order is restored in the Universe, it must be maintained by those who will never tire, who will never go hungry, and those who will never say no. This is why you need to be replaced; you have the same fault that the rest of the species in this universe carry: You have free will."

Diamond turned to Turquoise and then waved his hand. As he did, an Agate drone flew into the room with a Gem in grasp. This Gem had blue skin and hair that was wrapped in a scarf hood. As the Agate released him, the Gem turned to see Turquois pinned to the wall with a look of horror and then she turned around to see Diamond and Zirconia. He then summoned a pair of chakrams and pounced at the Master, only to be suddenly struck into a wall by a large Diamond Mace. As Diamond dispersed his mace, he called the Agate who brought her and gestured to the Gem. The Agate then scanned the Gem and turned to its creator.

"[GEM IDENTIFIED….IDENTIFICATION: SAPPHIRE…..CLASSIFICATION: PERTURBATIO…..GEM TYPE: ASCITUS….WEAPON TYPE: CHACKRAMS….THREAT LEVEL: MODERATE]"

Diamond then raised his hand, lifting the Gem up from the ground and towards him. As he stared into the eyes, he raised his hand up to the Gem in a clenching motion.

"Diamond wait!" Turquoise shouted at the Master, halting his actions to focus his attention of the six-armed Gem, "Don't hurt him, it's me you want, you are here because you are after Master Topaz are you?"

Diamond turned to face Turquoise and lowered his hand, Sapphire now floating behind him as he spoke to the Gem before him.

"I am surprised you realized my intentions so quickly. Yes, I am here because you were the last Gem to converse with him before he disappeared. Now you will tell me my brother is hiding. If you do not comply, I will kill Sapphire and then rape you."

Turquoise hesitated before lowering her head in defeat; she then took a deep breath and then raised her head to lock eyes with Diamond.

"He is at the Mendax Colony." She replied softly, "Now release Sapphire and leave my colony…please."

"Of course, I will release Sapphire…" Diamond replied as he turned to the Gem before him, raising his hand again, slightly clenching it. "…from his physical bonds."

As Diamond unclenched his hand, Sapphire's limbs and head exploded, followed by his torso. Turquoise screamed in anger and agony as she watched Diamond lift up Sapphire's Gem from the ground. As soon as he did, an Agate drone carrying a small silver pod with a hole in it appeared. Diamond then planted the Sapphire into the pod's hole. As he did, the pod began to hover into the air and glow blue before beginning to take shape. Turquoise watched in horror as the Gem before her was transformed into a Agate before her very eyes. She also realized that the Agate was not just a simple war droid, but was a machine powered by the Vitae of a fallen Gem. As the new Agate hovered down in front of Diamond, its three lenses lit up and it spoke to its new master.

"[AGATE MODEL 1,243,656.49 ONLINE…SYSTEMS: ACTIVE…..WEAPONS: ONLINE…PRIMARY MISSION: LOCATE AND APPREHEND ROGUE GEMS…SECONDARY MISSION: ACQUIRE VITAE ….PRIMARY MISSION STATUS: GEMS LOCATED…ACTION: APPREHEND AND SUBJUGATE]"

"Welcome Agate, at this moment you will follow protocol 11-8 along with your primary mission. There are three other Gem leaders on this colony, apprehend them and follow secondary mission if they are deceased."

The Gem saluted as he hovered near Zirconia, who laughed in response to the Gemdroid before jumping out the window with her new Agate behind her.

"You now see Turquoise, that this is the new age of peace." Diamond said as he walked over to his captive once more. "Sapphire has now become something greater. A machine that will never tire, always obey, and show no remorse to his targets, that is how you restore order. Now then, its time I taught you the price for treason."

Turquoise replied to this by spitting in Diamond's face who responded by striking her in the face. As he finished, he scanned her with his eyes and then looked to the Agates restraining her before giving them a new command.

"Strip her."

Crystal Training Room, present day

Connie fell on her back again; this was the ninth time now. As it has been for weeks now, Connie was trying to unlock her full Gem potential. Although she could summon her weapon, she still needed to learn how to use it properly. Therefore, Garnet prepared a specialized training room for her to practice. As the Gem rose off the floor, she looked to her opponent, a hologem of a Agate drone, which quickly charged at her. Connie dodged the attack and slashed off one of its arms, causing the hologem to dissipate. As Connie sat on the floor, exhausted by the training, she noticed Garnet walking up next to her, with Amethyst behind.

"Your abilities are getting better Connie," Garnet said in her stoic tone to the new Gem "but it seems like you are still holding back."

Connie looked to the floor and sighed, "I just fell like battling a Agate would not be enough, I mean, can't I fight one of you guys?"

Amethyst smiled "Yeah Garnet, let's become Sugulite! She could give Connie a nice workout. Remember how exhausted Perrr…." Amethyst stopped mid-sentence, remembering about the whole fiasco four months ago, Amethyst looked at a ringing expression at Connie, who was still looking at the floor before she stood up to face her Gem sisters.

"Set up a new hologem." Connie said in a determined but serious tone "this time though, use Pearl's."

As Garnet and Amethyst looked at each other, they then looked back to Connie and Garnet waved her hand. As she did, a hologram of Pearl appeared before the three Gems. This hologem was used by Pearl as a training dummy, and at one point, an unsuccessful substitute for Pearl.

"[DO YOU WISH TO ENGAGE IN COMBAT?]" The hologem exclaimed in a dramatic fashion.

Connie nodded as she brought up her sword and shield. As she did, the hologem summoned a spear, and lunged at its opponent. Connie quickly dodged the attack as she brought the sword down onto the hologem, only for it to roll out of the way and throw its spear at Connie. As Connie blocked the attack, the hologem kicked the shield, hitting Connie in the face and dropping her to the floor. Connie rose up; her nose trickling blood a she brought up her blade one more.

"Is that all you got?" Connie shouted at the hologem "I had more of a challenge with the Agate hologem."

"[INITIATING ADVANCED ATTACK MODE]" the hologem replied as it lunged into the air, summoned two spears, and lunged again at Connie. This time, Connie blocked the attack and pushed forward, knocking the hologem back. The hologem flipped to recover as it shot one of its spears at Connie. As she blocked this, she felt a sharp slash in her back. When she turned to the source of the attack, she was attacked again. The pain of the attacks caused Connie to lose grip of her weapons and drop to the floor. As she looked up, she saw the hologem walking towards her, brandishing a bloody spear and a cold stare.

As the hologem stood above her and was about to thrust its spear, a large gauntlet blew the head off the hologem, causing it to stagger and then dissipate. Connie looked to Garnet, who had just saved her life and now was over the new gem. Her arms crossed over her chest and her face a stoic expression.

"Perhaps we should stick to the Agate for a while."

"Yeah…" Connie said, "By the way, can a Gem die from blood loss, because I am loseing a lot of blood right now."

Garnet sighed as she lifted the Gem into her arms. As she carried the Gem about of the room, Amethyst trailed next to them. Telling Connie about how badass she was facing the Holo-Pearl. As Connie listened, she felt that in the back of her mind that the reason she lost the fight was not because of the hologem's power.

Gem Colony Venatio's Hangar Bay, present day

Time was not in the favor of the Crystal Gems. As the groups rushed to the hangars in hope that a ship was still operational, there was the issue with dealing with the aftermath. Luckily, there were reports of a colony on a planet called Terra that housed several Gems and one of the Tribunal. As of now, it was up to Azurite and Malachite to lead the surviving Gems off the colony. As they ran through the tunnels they could hear the fighting above them, the sound of Gems clashing with their mechanical replacements, the wounds of Gems screaming as they were ripped apart. Azurite suddenly placed her hands over her head and slumped down into a ball, the horror of what was happening was too much for the blue Gem. Malachite tilted her head to the other Gems to have them move on, as she would stay behind to help her Gem sister.

"Azurite, it's going to be okay. We are going to get out of this, you will see. However, we need to get to the ship. It's our only chance to escape." Malachite said as she looked into Azurite's eyes.

Azurite took a deep breath as she stood up, continuing to walk with her sister into the hanger. Inside the hanger was a large ship. Unlike other Gem ships, this ship was made of metal. It also had an insignia in the side that looked like an Ingot with wings and a shield in the center. Under the Ingot, were the words "OLYMPUS MONS." As Malachite and Azurite approached the ship, they heard a large groaning followed by a bigger explosion. They knew that if they did not launch now. There was no way to escape.

"Turquoise, this is Malachite; the Olympus Mons is ready to launch. What is your status?"

There was nothing but silence on the other end. As Malachite looked at Azurite, she tried another.

"Sapphire, are you there, we need to leave now. Respond."

Nothing, it was perfectly clear that they were gone. Malachite clenched her hands before approaching the bridge of the ship. There on the bridge, Gems had already prepared to leave.

"Is the ship ready to launch?" Malachite asked another Gem, a gem in a blue duster with a face bandana by the name of Spinel.

"She is all set to go." Spinel stated before noticing outside the window "Oh shit!"

As Malachite looked out the window, she saw several Agate Drones flying into the Hanger. Malachite then stormed up to the controls and pressed several buttons. When she did, the panels came to life, as well as a computerized face.

"[Greetings, I am A.L.L.O.Y. I am the Super Computer to the Metalia Ranger ship The Onlympus Mons. How may I help you today?]"

"Engage hostile defense system." Malachite replied.

"[Command accepted, Beginning hostile defense.]"

Suddenly, the ship began to vibrate as several turrets emerged from the sides of the ship, firing at the Agates who were flying around the ship. As Malachite sighed in relief, she noticed a white haired Gem running from the Agates. Before she could do anything, she saw Azurite running out of the ship, obviously intending to save the Gem.

"AZURITE WAIT!" Malachite shouted as she chased her sister. However, she then saw the white haired Gem kneeling on the ground with Azurite over her, trying to comfort her. As Azurite saw a Agate charge at her, she created a blue bubble, blocking the attack and shielding her and the other Gem from harm. As Malachite approached the two Gems, she then noticed that the kneeling Gem was dripping black fluid from her face. As Malachite realized who she was, she tried to warn Azurite.

"AZURITE, GET AWAY FROM HER! SHE IS ONE OF DIAMOND'S-"

*shunk*

Malachite watched in horror as the white haired Gem stabbed a katar into Azurite's stomach. Breaking the bubble and causing Azurite to kneel in pain.

"Didn't Turquoise ever teach you not to trust strangers?" Zirconia said while bending down to the blue Gem.

As Azurite fell over, she dissipated into a single blue Gem. As soon as she did, one of the Agates hovered near her.

"[GEM INCAPACITATED…COMMENCING GEM AQUIRENCE.]"

The Agate then opened his hand, causing the Gem to lift up into the air and float towards the Gemdroid. Malachite, still upset by the attack, quickly rushed over, and grabbed Azurite's Gem. As the two tugged the Gem, a thought hatched into Malachite's brain. Such an action would be considered forbidden as unlike Gem fusion, the effects were permanent. Nevertheless, it would be better than the alternative.

"Forgive me Azurite." Malachite said softly as she pulled the Gem close to her chest. As she did, she whispered a single phrase.

"Sed et nos unum sumus!"

As soon as she did, both Azurite's Gem and Malachite began to glow in a bright light. Suddenly, there was a large pulse, knocking the Agate and Zirconia back and leaving a large cloud of smoke where Malachite once stood. As Zirconia peerd into the smoke cloud, she saw something standing there. She then realaized that the being was a Gem, but it was far different then what she had been facing before.

"[NEW GEM IDENTIFIED…IDENTIFICATION: ERROR….CLASSIFICATION: ERROR….GEM TYPE: ERROR….WEAPON TYPE: HAND TO HAND…THREAT LEVEL: ERROR...ACTIVATING EM-*

Before the Agate could respond, it was cut into ribbons by a blurred flash, Followed by a large cut into Zirconia's chest. As the Gem stumbled in shock, she looked back to the cloud, only to find in its place was a Gem. She could see that it looked like Azurite, but with Malachite's colors and a different wardrobe. She also saw that the Gem's hands had large sharp claws on them.

"Wha-What are you?" Zirconia asked in horror.

"You can call me Thorn, Bitch!" Thorn replied as she walked towards her opponent.

Zirconia called for move Agates, but as they attacked the Gem, they were too slow to deal with Thorn.

"So this is the might of Diamond?" Thorn said with a laugh as she cut down Agate after Agate, "I am quite disappointed that he is-"

"I am what?" a voice shot out, drawing the attention of the two Gems.

There was Diamond, standing before the two Gems with two items in hand. In one hand was his Mace, drenched with blood. While in the other was a head. As he threw the head towards Thorn, she saw that head was missing a large Gem over its eye. Thorn, being a fusion of tow Gems who worked with the head's original owner, knew exactly who's head this was.

"Turquoise?" Thorn replied as she saw the head roll towards her and stop.

Thorn then gritted her teeth as tears rolled down her face. She then screamed a bloody roar as she leaped at Diamond, who simply dodged her attack and wacked her in the back with his mace. As Thorn recovered, both of them head the sound of engine charging as they turned to see the Olympus Mos begin to take off. Thorn then jumped into the air, leaping over Agates and then sinking her claws into the hull of the ship. Diamond watched as Thorn entered the ship door and watched the ship launch out of the Colony. He then noticed Zirconia limping towards him.

"I did not expect that they could do that." Zirconia said as she began to cover her wounds "Don't worry Master, we will go after them."

"No you will not." Diamond said as he looked at the ship flying away. "You will not because I know where they are going. In the meantime, I think it is time you returned to Terra. There is a Gem we need to capture."

Zirconia looked with anticipation "Does this mean I can kill them Master?"

Diamond placed his hands behind his back "As long as you do not kill the false Gem, I do not care what happens to the rest of them. You may do as you please."

Zirconia gave a large grin as she waved her hands. As she did, the destroyed Agates reassembled and flew out of the hangar doors. As Zirconia began walking out of the hanger, she was stopped by Diamond's voice, issuing her an additional command before he vanished.

"…and do not forget to bring Vestibulum with you."

Chapter 9: The Diamond, the Pearl, and the Rose Quartz

[*]

The Crystal Temple exterior, 12 years ago

It was a warm day at the temple, the sun was shining, and there was a calm breeze in the air. The sound of the ocean waves on the beach was quite relaxing, especially for the Crystal Gems. Garnet was soaking up the sun's rays while Pearl read a book quietly next to her. All the while, a young half-gen toddler by the name of Steven played with the wet sand in an attempt to create a sand castle. As the hours went by, Garnet looked up from her slumber to check up on Steven, Pearl automatically closed her book, making sure that her fellow Gem did not see what was within.

"Pearl," Garnet asked with a yawn, "Have you seen Amethyst?"

" Oh you know Amethyst" the long nosed gems sighed in irritation at the mere mention of the nuisance she called a "Gem Sister" "She probably is doing something that is either, idiotic, annoying, or both. But as long as we keep away from here, nothing can go wrong."

Just then, as the two Gems and looked to the ocean beside them, there expression turned from curiosity into gaped horror at the large roaring title wave heading straight towards them. Both of the Gems could see a short purple impish figure riding a surfboard that appeared to have been formed from her feet. This was Amethyst, the most unstable and impulsive of the Gems, who was now approaching the gems with a tsunami in tow.

"INCOMING!" Screamed the thick-lipped Gem as her wave towered over the beach, "Here comes the Super Delux Amethyst…uh…splash…err..Thing!"

Steven cooed and giggled at the looming water wall that was closing in on him. Within an instant, Garnet stood before the wave and summoned her Gauntlets. Within moments, she then pulled her hand back and struck the wave with a open palm, causing the titanic wall of water to collapse and sink into the ocean, dragging Amethyst with it. As Garnet tended to a guffawing Steven, Pearl stormed over to the water and dragged a large purple fish out to the beach, which transformed into a laughing purple Gem.

"Oh my God, you should have seen your faces! Especially yours Pearl!" Amethyst gasped between laughs, "Man, I should have brought a camera."

"Amethyst, that was just completely reckless! You could have hurt Steven!" Pearl said to Amethyst in a stern matter, "Just what were you thinking? Now that Rose is gone we need to protect Steven and raise him. Do you know anything about caring for a child?"

"Chill out Pearl, You know that just because we are known as sister does not bean we come from the same planet." Amethyst Said as she rested her back on the warm sand, "Back on Purpura, we would do shit like that all of the time to a cub, and if the cub got hurt, they would walk it off. I mean, that is what my dad did and look, I turned out fine."
Pearl clenched her hands as she let out an irritated sigh, Amethyst always knew how to get under Pearl's skin, but what she just said just stuck to her, what she just said reminded her of something when always kept to herself.

Pearl then turned to Garnet, who was just placing Steven into his stroller. Garnet then looked up to Pearl, who gestured to Amethyst as if to tell her that Pearl was right. Garnet just shrugged, a usual response to something she was indifferent to.

"Amethyst was doing nothing wrong Pearl, Steven was alright and that is what matters."
Pearl scoffed, "Well, do you think that an off world tradition is fair to Steven?"

"Pearl, you must remember that Steven is one of the first Natum Gems since the tribunal; we are all new to raising a child and we are trying to understand the process. That is the reason why Amethyst was doing what her father did." Garnet replied as she placed a hand on Pearl's shoulder, "On Tresoculos, my father taught me how to fight the day I began to walk, just as he did for my older sisters."

Just then, Pearl pushed away from Garnet and gave a look of distress. Amethyst noticed this and let out a large grin of cheekiness. As Pearl began to collect her composure, Amethyst snuck behind her and gave a smile in a style similar to a sea sponge.
"What about you Pearl, what did your daddy do to you?"

Pearl quickly turned around and gave a look of disgust, "Nothing, he did nothing!" she replied as she pushed the purple Gem away from her. As she did, Amethyst began to skip in a circle around Pearl, singing a small tune to tease her long-nosed friend.

"Ohhhh! Pearl doesn't like her daddy! Pearl doesn't like her daddy! Pearl doesn't like her daddy!"

"Amethyst, stop this right now! My relationship with family is none your business!" Pearl shouted, but her orders were feeble and in vain as the Gem continued her teasing.

"Come on Pearl, so what if you and your dad don't get along? Don't be so much of a prude and let it out!" Amethyst shouted before she continued her teasing.

"Amethyst please, stop this instant and leave me alone!" Garnet could see that Pearl was getting visibly upset, but she knew that it would be best if she and Amethyst figured it out on their own.

"Why? Are you afraid your dads going to find out that you are not a perfect Gem as you say you are?"

"My relationships with my family are none of your concern."

"Oh please! If you've got a daddy issue, let me get you a daddy tissue!"

Pearl clenched her hands as her face turned a bright blue, "You don't know anything about my father..."

"Let me guess: Was he a snobby neglecting type or the strict "Dick"-tator type?" Amethyst turned into an image of Pearl but with a moustache and a monocle, "Pearl, you are grounded for no reason. Go to your room and finish your homework. There will be no space-tea and space-crumpets for you young woman! And no lip unless you want the belt"

Amethyst turned back and fell to the ground in laughter. Only to be stopped by the sensation of a spear smacking her across the face. As the Gem rose up and began to heal the cut on her cheek, she looked up at Pearl, who was looming over her with a look of anger on her face and a spear trembling in her hand. Amethyst then noticed the tears welling up in her eyes and pouring down her face. Garnet, who was watching the whole scene in surprise, noticed that these tears were not black, but clear.

"Hey, chill out Pearl," Amethyst said as she stood up with her arms up in a defensive position, "So what if your dad was a jerk to you, I was just kid-"

"HE DIDN'T JUST ABUSE ME AMETHYST! HE DID THINGS TO ME!"

Both Garnet and Amethyst where speechless, not once did they suspect something like this would come from Pearl. The two Gems did not know what to say or what to think. Pearl then dissipated her spear and knelt onto the sand beneath her.

"He…he did things to me…it makes me sick!" Pearl sobbed to Amethyst as she clenched the sand between her hands. "Are you happy now Amethyst! Well, ARE YOU?

As she rose up to, she felt a hand touch her shoulder as she looked up to see Amethyst before her, as the purple Gem gave her friend a large hug, Pearl then felt another Gem join in to support her Gem sister. As Pearl looked at both of her Gem sisters, a mixed feeling of comfort and guilt washed over her as she sunk her face into Amethyst's
shoulder, bawling as hard as possible, knowing that what she had to do would cost her relationship with these gems who care so much about her.

As the two Gems comforted their comrade on the calm beach, Steven lay within his crib, asleep and quite, not knowing that at that moment, a large figure was looming over his soft body, looking down at the very creature that had put a wrench in his plans.

"So this is my Sister's child, the one who carries all of her powers thanks to Vestibulum's incompetence?"

Steven awoke and cooed at the tall Gem before him, only to be given a look of disgust and irritation in response,

"You are nothing more than an abomination and a thief that should not even be alive."

Diamond reached down and placed his hand in front of Steven's face. The infant Gem grabbed the Gem Master's fingers and smiled at the Gem Master before him.

"However, you still need time to grow before your Vitae become perfect for extraction; nevertheless I am certain that  Vestibulum will make sure that you will be ready in no time."

The Master then looked up to the three Gems and gave an expression of amusement as he saw Pearl embracing her Gem sisters in the sandy beach. The sight of Pearl behavior caused him to feel a sudden rush of anger, which he quickly controlled as he turned his attention back to the infant besides him.

"Do you know what I find most amusing but at the same time tragic about loyalty?"

The Master said to Steven as he sat down beside Steven,

"I find that if the servant is broken just right, they will do whatever you say regardless of their own opinion or moral believe, like a machine without a will. However, to make such a servant requires the right subject at the right opportunity and even after that, proper requirements and actions must be met in order for the servant be broken into absolute loyalty…"

"…and what better choice of an obedient servant then one conceived from your own blood?"

The Master then stood up and began to walk back to the temple, but not before turning back to his oblivious nephew.

"Of course, if my daughter proves to be as obedient as I expect her to be. But do not worry; you shall find out soon enough, won't you child?"

and with that, the Master was gone, leaving behind a child who had no idea what was in store for him and what fate he would soon experience.

"Pearl!" Amethyst shouted as she and Garnet returned to the temple, "Come on! Grab Steven and get that curved butt in gear." Garnet sighed in response, seemingly flustered by the thought.

As Pearl walked to the temple with Steven in hand, she looked up at the temple and saw a large being on one of the cliffs. She watched as he slowly shook his head in disappointment as he entered the wall behind him. Pearl cringed at the sight, knowing that her master expected better from her, and that she would have to make the sacrifice to ensure the plan's success. As of now however, she looked down at cooing Steven and hugged him tightly. As tears of obsidian rolled down her cheeks, she whispered to the infant as he clung to her chest.

"I do not know if you can hear me though him Rose, but I hope that you now understand what I have to do and I hope that you can forgive me for what I must do."

As she tucked the child into his crib, she placed her necklace onto a wall and hesitated before she summoned a portal before her. As she felt cold stale air blow before her, she took a deep breath as she stepped inside.

Chapter 8: To Serve Gem

It had been quite the day for Young Steven, first he had to clean the whole arcade and inspect the machines, then he had to maintain the ticket booth and prevent cheaters from working the system. As the young man dragged out a small, mute who he once claimed to be "The Ticket Master," He let out an exhausted sigh. This work was hard, but it was all worth it to help Connie. Later on in the day, Steven was finishing cleaning the tables in the new food court when Harold Smiley, Steven's new boss and the man who was going to adopt his child, approached him. "Hey Steven, can I ask you something?" The arcade owner/ wrestling sponsor asked his employee. "It's about your kid…" "Sure thing Mr. Smiley" Steven responded with a smile. "What's on your mind?" Harold sat down next to Steven and rubbed his eyes with his hands, he was looking somewhat anxious. "Steven, do you think I'm going to be a good dad? I mean, you have seen how I respond to high stress of kids and I am worried I am going to screw up." Steven nodded as he patted Harold on his baldhead. "Don't worry about it sir!" Steven said with a triumphant voice, "As Pearl always says: Everyone makes mistakes. Besides, you will be the coolest dad ever. You run an arcade and you sponsor wrestling, which is something that in my opinion is so awesome."

Harold smiled and wiped a tear from his eye. "You always know what to say, don't you?" As the tall man stood up, he turned to Steven with a smile. "Steven, go take the day off. You have worked hard for the past few days and you have earned it. Besides, you should see if Connie came back from that session.

Steve gasped, he almost forgot about that. Without another word, the young Gem dropped his cleaning gear and bolted out of the food court. Harold was surprised at Steven's sudden exit, but he soon chuckled as he picked up the washcloth and the spray bottle off the floor. As he rose up and turned around, he saw a strange man inspecting one of his games. The man was quite taller than Harold was, and he was wearing a grey robe with a white tunic underneath. He also had a long nose and a pointed up hairstyle that looked quite familiar, only that the hair was grey and less organized. He also had a grey beard and three large scars on his face. As Harold walked up to him, the man began to speak in a deep, powerful voice, a voice that caused Mr. Smiley to freeze up at the sound.

"She was quite right you know, Human do find interesting ways to waste their time." The man said as he placed his hand on one of the games, shutting it off with a array of sparks and smoke. As Harold was about to object, the man turned to the arcade owner and looked at him with his piercing red eyes. Harold hesitated at the site; he knew this man had a relationship with those friends of Steven's. As the man placed his hand on the Game console again, the screen lit up, showing various events in history. The man then turned to Harold and gestured to the screen. "We gave you so much, we provided you knowledge and potential, and this is what you do with our gift?"

Harold was confused, but he knew this man was trouble. "Okay buddy, I do not know who you are or if you are one of those Gem people, but I think that yo-" Harold was quickly interrupted by the sensation of being lifted into the air. As he looked at the man before him, he realized that his suspicions were true. They were ultimately confirmed by the star shaped hole in his right shoulder sleeve, which revealed a silver colored gem embedded in his right shoulder.

"Do you think you command me? You do not realize that there was a time where your kind viewed us as gods." The man responded to Harold, "I shall be the one deciding your fate human. Now tell me, what do you know about Steven's predicament with his offspring?"

Harold eyes widened at the mention of Steven's kid, "He…He is having a child with a girl named Connie. He also agreed to allow me to adopt the baby once it was born. He works for me to help pay for medical expenses. Look, if this has something to do with those Gems, I am not-"

"Tacete" the man commanded as he slammed Harold into one of the arcade walls. Harold gasped from having the wind knocked out of him; he turned to see the man still facing him, his eyes still fixated on his captive. "You have told me what I need to know. I wanted to make sure that she was not lying to me, and I am glad she was not."

"She? Harold asked with concern, he was beginning to make a connection, "Who the Gems? What have you done to them?"

The next thing he knew, the man was standing over him. Before Harold could respond, the tall figure placed a hand on his head. At that moment, Harold began to see strange images; the man was placing a vision into the arcade manager's head. As the seconds passed by, Harold face changed to a look of horror as tears shed from his face, what he saw was a truth he never saw coming.

"No….not her….not her…"

Harold quickly ripped the man's hand off his head and stumbled away from him. He tried to stand up, but quickly fell onto the floor and proceeded to vomit. As he knelt before the man sobbing and gagging, the man walked up to him and knelt beside him. Harold looked to the man beside him with a look of anger and fear.

"Why…why her" Harold gasped at his guest before standing up to face him. The man stood up as well, still giving the same monotone expression as he did throughout the whole ordeal. The very thought that coursed in Harold's mind caused him to explode with rage as he charged at the man before him. As he threw a punch at his tormentor, the man simply avoided the attack and grasped Harold by the neck, bringing him closer to his face before giving him his answer.

"Because I am her god," The Master simply responded to a weak Harold. "She shall provide me what I seek as she always has." Harold watched in horror as the Master's jaw split open down the middle, opening up and revealing a set of tentacles, barbed sets of fangs and a large barbed tube-like tongue. The tentacles then wrapped around Harold's neck and entered his mouth, as soon as he was positioned well enough, Harold felt a sudden rush of horror and pain throughout his entire body, but he could not find the ability to scream. At this moment, he felt a sharp stab in his neck from the Master's large tongue that attached itself to Harold's neck. At this moment, Harold began to feel the pain and dread start to accelerate through his body and proceed to fade away as the Master continue feeding, feeling small jolts of agony every few moments. Eventually, this all passed and the Master's tongue detach from his neck and return to its jowls. Harold whimpered in pain as he felt the tentacles exit from his mouth, the ones on his neck grew tighter. As he looked at his captor, he glared right into his black shot eyes and his expression changed to a look of anger. He knew that this was his end and there was no escape from the Master's wrath. At this realization, he proceeded to spit onto the Master's face. Giving one final statement before he met his fate:

"Burn in hell you ugly son of a-"

*crack*

[*]

"Pearl, I'm home!" Steven shouted as he walked through the screen door and into the kitchen. Exhausted from working so much plus running all the way to the temple, Steven sat down at the counter and place his head down. As he sat there, he began to think about Connie, although the plan was perfect and it would allow her to have a better life. Something in Steven's mind was telling him that something was not right. His thoughts were quickly cast aside when he encountered an intoxicating aroma of cooked meat. He lifted his head to see Pearl approaching him, wearing a black apron with a plate in hand.

"Oh hello Steven." Pearl said in a calm collect voice as always, "How was work today? Did that Mr. Smiley fellow give you a hard time?"

Steven eyed the plate that carried a large juicy pork chop as Pearl placed it before him. The moment when Pearl handed Steven his special "Limited edition Dog-coptor spork," Steven began to chow down. Steven always though that Pearl was a great cook, especially when it came to pork chops. This one however, was quite peculiar.

"Working for Mr. Smiley is the best! Not only am I helping Connie and Mr. Smiley, but I am also having a great time." Steven then looked at one of the cubes of pork before he turned to face Pearl, who was sitting across the counter with backs of her hands holding up her head, smiling as she watched him eat. "Say Pearl, what kind of pork is this, it tastes funny."

"It's Veal," Pearl simply responded, "I made it from scratch."

Steven paused for a moment and then proceeded to eat more of the pork chop. He then noticed that the entire floors were coated with plastic sheets and the walls and furniture were covered in tarps. "Say Pearl, what is with all the sheets, is there something you painted in here?

"No Steven…." Pearl responded again. This time Steven was a little suspicious. As he finished half of the pork chop, he turned to Pearl again, who was still in the same position as before.

"So, did Connie talk to you about our child?" Steven asked

"Yes she did." Pearl replied, "Finish your meal."

"When are Garnet and Amethyst coming back?" Steven asked Pearl, who irritably replied "Soon…"

"What about Connie, when is she coming back from that session? Cause I need to talk to her about the whole issue with the baby. Then we have to go through a whole-"

"Steven?" Pearl said, interrupting the half-gem's monologue.

"Yeah Pearl?" Steven replied

"Just shut up!"

Steven froze; he did not expect to hear something like that from Pearl. At this moment, he knew something was wrong, and a gut feeling informed him that it had something to do with Connie.

"Pearl, where is Connie?" Steven asked anxiously "What did you do to her?"

Pearl stood up from where she was sitting and moved started to move over to the door. As she stood next to it, she turned and waved her hand across the knob. Upon hearing the click, Steven felt a jolt of fear enter his body. He soon realized what Pearl was doing.

"Before you say anything Steven, Connie is still alive and is still providing Vitae as we speak."

Steven remembered Pearl mentioning "Vitae" before, it was on the same day that she attacked Steven. He sat up from the counter and tried to move away from the counter, but then he felt a sharp pain in his stomach. As he hunched over and knelt to the floor, Pearl moved closer to him. Looking at him with an expression of tranquility. Steven noticed her eyes becoming black shot, as if they were being filled with ink. He also noticed black tears streaming down from Pearl's eyes. Several drops hit the floor and burned right though the plastic sheets.

"But I guess you are wondering what about the baby?" Pearl asked Steven as she walked over to the counter where the half-finished pork chop sat. Pearl then grabbed the meat and brought it over to Steven, placing the slice in front of his face. "I will tell you what, if you finish this pork chop, I will tell you what happened to your child."

Steven looked at the pork chop, and then back to Pearl. As he was about to bite into the meat, he then remembered something pearl said:

"It's Veal, I made it from scratch."

Steven shuddered with horror at the realization as he shoved the "pork" aside. As he gagged and gasped in horror, Pearl frowned at Steven's behavior.

"This is quite rude you know? Pearl sighed, "I worked so hard to make you this special meal. Do you know how much blood, Vitae, and tears went into this meal?"

As Steven looked up at the Gem before him, he could not find the words to respond to Pearl's actions. Of all of the Crystal Gems, Pearl was the one he looked to as a mother and a caretaker. He was hoping this was all a dream, only to be reminded when Pearl slapped Steven across the face and pushed him onto his back. As she straddled on top of him, Pearl grabbed Steven's face and held his mouth open with one hand, while with the other held the large slab of "veal pork."

"You are not done her Steven!" Pearl exclaimed in an ecstatic manner "Eat everything that is on your plate! FINISH IT!" Pearl then proceeded to shove the pork right into Steven's mouth and down this thought. Steven gagged and coughed as he tried to shove Pearl away. Pearl began to laugh and hum as she continued to choke Steven. She then released Steven from her hold and moved away from him. Allowing the young Gem to sit up and vomit out the pork chop he was forced to eat. As Steven caught his breath, he noticed the black vomit on the floor. He then placed his hand on his mouth and saw there was blood on his hand. He turned to Pearl, who was looking at him with a look of innocence and curiosity.

"Why Pearl?" Steven asked his voice weak from the damage cause by the black bile. "Why have you done this?"

Pearl sighed as she began to walk towards her young victim. As she did, she waved her hand over her gem, revealing various black cracks and damage within its once perfect image, she also revealed to have large scars over the arms and a larger scar across her left eye. Pearl then summoned a small folding chair and sat down before the wounded Steven.

"Well it all started when I killed and butchered your mother, Rose Quartz. Oh that was a great time. Did you know that I killed her in the same way I am killing you?"

Steven was speechless, for his whole life, he was told his mother sacrificed herself for him. Now he is told that it was all a lie. Steven cringed from the pain, fresh tears poured down his face as Pearl continued to speak.

"Unfortunately, the Master disliked my actions, because of her involvement with your father; Rose's power was transplanted into you. Not to mention that because you were half-human, power you obtained could not be extracted properly until you turned 13. Until then I had to bide my time, blend in with the Gems and had to jump through hoop after hoop until I could find a chance to deal with you."

Steven was devastated. All the times he bonded with Pearl were lies. She had been manipulating him from the very beginning, all the times they laughed together, cried together, and fought together, have all been one big hoax.

"I had an opportunity to kill you during the Tribunal Ceremony, but then not only did you evade my actions, but you also managed to nearly blow my cover, which is why I used the whole "Obsidian Virus" idea, to prevent any suspicion. This did however; allow a small window of opportunity when Garnet found the ruins of the Crystal Empire. I simply tricked them into going to the temple, knowing that the trip would last for months. By the time, they would have gotten back. Everything would have gone off without a hitch."

"Obsidian Virus?" Steven replied weakly, Pearl then pulled out the letter Garnet left for the young Gem and tossed it to him. Steven read at the letter and the back at Pearl. "How could you do this to them, especially Garnet?" Steven tried to sit up and he pointed his right arm towards Pearl, "Garnet liked you, she had feeling for you, and you used that fo-" before Steven could finish, he hear a loud slash followed by a section of his forearm burning, he then felt the lower half of his arm burn as the whole section slid off. Steven shrieked as he held his bloody stump. Pearl ignored his cries for a few seconds before she became annoyed and promptly walked up to the wounded gem and kicked him in the face. Steven then felt Pearl place a pointed object at Steven's lower back and push it into his lower back. Steven screamed as he felt the sharp object pierce his flesh. Pearl then proceeded to return to her chair and sit back down.

"As I was saying, everything would have gone off without a hitch, but there was one thing that I did not anticipate or expect: Connie and her child." Steven looked up at Pearl again, his expression now of anger, bearing his teeth, a few broken and missing from Pearl's kick. "I never expected that you would have knocked her up. It was because of her involvement with you that she had to die. The child you created had a portion of your Gem power; I could not let that happen. Therefore, I simply took back what was rightfully ours. Your father almost found out, but that proved to be of no challenge and was quite the treat."

As Pearl stood up and moved closer to Steven, she noticed his expression of anger quickly turn back into agony when she knelt to face him. She then traced her finger across Steven's throat, As Steven tried to speak, he found out that he could only make shouts and bleats, like an animal for slaughter. Pearl simply smiled in response to his incoherent cries and kissed him on the forehead before she placed her hand onto the floor and summoned a large toolbox. From the toolbox, she pulled out a large hacksaw. As she showed it to the fearful Steven, who wet himself in response, her smile turned into a large grin, black tears were pouring from her eyes, black bile trickling from her mouth.

"You know what I have been wondering for some time now Steven, why do they call this tool a hacksaw when it does not hack?" Pearl mentioned to the young Gem, terrified at the intentions with the hacksaw. "Hacking is what one would do with a knife or an ax. However, this is a saw; it is meant to saw through things. I do not understand where you humans come up with such pointless endeavors.

As Steven tried to move, Pearl sat on top of him again, grabbing one of his squirming legs. Steven tried to call for help, but it was of no use, he made loud noises in an attempt to call for help, but they were incoherent to the basic ear. As Steven found no real, reason to scream anymore, that soon changed when he felt the sharp hacksaw begin to cut through his leg.

"When the moon is full…" Pearl cut through each joint of his foot and then his leg, ignoring the squealing from Steven as she worked on the next one.

"…and I've pried…" As Pearl cut through the flesh, Steven's leg was moving around too much, Pearl then simply broke off the leg at the bone and tore the whole thing off before moving onto the left arm.

"…I'll take up you guts…" Pearl sliced of each joint of Steven's fingers, then the joints of his hand, then his forearm, and finally, his shoulder.

"…to the little shed outside…" Having already cut off his right forearm, Pearl simply cut the remains of the upper arm and shoulder off. Pearl then summoned a large trunk where she took all of Steven's limbs and put them into the trunk. She then lifted Steven off the floor and onto the counter, where she cut off his cloths and cast them onto the bloody floor.

"…I'll pretend that I'm blind in one eyeand I'll hide it in you…" Pearl then grabbed hold of Steven's "Jewels" and slowly cut them off, one by one. Steven gurgled as blood pours from his mouth, had it not been for that object Pearl planted in Steven, he would have been dead long ago. As soon as Pearl finished with the castration, she summoned a large scalpel and sliced open Steven's ribcage, plucking out the majority of his organs, save for his heart and lungs. She also plucked out his Gem, which she placed into the plate that carried the Gem baby pork chop. Upon completion, she turned to face Steven as she placed the teeth of the hacksaw onto his neck. Steven gurgled in response to Pearl's actions.

"It's like your head is crumbledand hiding in you." Each slice of the saw cause Steven to gurgle and make noises of suffering as Pearl then began to drag the saw back and forth and back and forth and back and forth all while saying "I forgive you" over and over until…

*thud*

Pearl stopped when she heard the sound of Steven's head hitting the floor as she picked it up and looked into the dead eyes of the young Gem, she began to softly giggle, this turned into loud laughter which escalated into a blood curdling hysteria. She then raised the head up above her as blood dripped down from the head onto her face.

"I DID IT MASTER!" Pearl shrieked to the heavens above, "I FIXED MY MISTAKE, STEVEN IS DEAD, NOW THE POWER OF ROSE IS FINALLY-" As she turned to where she planted the gem, she saw it was missing, Pearl expression changed to shock as she dropped Steven's head.

"Where is it?" Pearl looked all over the counter, knocking Steven's disemboweled torso onto the floor with a bloody thud, "Where is the Gem? WHERE IS THE GEM?"

Suddenly something caught Pearl's eye, right next to the counter and Steven's cast aside body, were a pair of burnt track. They looked like animal tracks…

Particularly a lion's tracks.

[*]

Numb, that is what Connie Maheswaran was feeling, it had been ages since her interaction with Pearl, and there she was, chained to a large stone slab with her stomach ripped open. Connie was not sure how she survived, but she wished it were all over and this nightmare would just end.

Suddenly, she heard the door open as she saw a shadow of a figure begin to enter the room. At first, Connie was hoping that it was Steven, but her thoughts faded when she saw the abomination before her. What had entered the room was a large flesh doll. The same one that Greg was tasked to build. Now that its purpose was finished, it was searching for new subject to torture, such as Connie. As Connie tried to move, she had no energy to move let alone speak as he creature shrieked at her. She was building up enough strength to say one thing to the abomination.

"…d..do…your..wo…worst…"

Just as it lifted its claw to begin its work, there was a large flash of light a huge flame inside the room. Out from the flame pounced Lion, who tackled the flesh abomination and ripped its head off. As he spat out the head, he turn towards the table where Pearl left her tools and the Gem from Connie's baby. Lion then spat out Steven's Gem and moved it next to the other Gem, which resulted in the two fusing together. As Lion swallowed the Rose Gem, Connie noticed the large bloody wound in Lion's body.

"..li…lion…" Connie weakly begged to lion, "hel…help…"

Lion simply moved over to Connie and bit off her restraints. He then sat down and placed his head next to Connie. With the last of her strength, Connie lifted her hand and placed it on lion's face. Just as she did, Lion's eyes lit up and he began to rise into the air. As Connie watched the light in awe, the light spoke to her in a woman's voice.

"Qui dolorem hostiam acceptam, sumes de pallio multæ misericordiæ Vicus Rose toga traditaeque fili leo Vicus cordis tui. Utor hac potestate prohibere frater de Obsidian adamas, et pacem in mundo, In hac habitasse destinty Connie Patel, Fath multa mihi in vobis."

The next thing Connie knew, she was fully healed and fully clothed upon the stone table, as she sat up and looked around, and she saw that Lion and the light around her were gone. As she looked down at her body, she saw no scars or wounds, not even a cut across her stomach, But there was something there instead. Connie was shocked at the realization of what had just happened, however, not before realizing that this meant that Steven was…

As Connie eyes welled up with tears, she suddenly felt a spark in mind and she began to see what appeared to be memories. She saw the moments when Steven first met Connie and they were trapped in a rose Bubble, when they fought agents a Robot, when Steven met Connie's Parents, and when Steven helped Connie though a snowstorm, It all lead up to when they went out on the date that changed their lives. As she smiled at the memories, she then saw the memory of when Steven met with Connie's parents and how he was determined to give Connie a better life. The most interesting thing about this memory was that the way that Steven was talking, it almost seemed like he was saying it directly to her. As the memories faded away, Connie looked at the bracelet that Steven found for her. As she touched it, she smiled and then placed her hands around the Gem attached to her belly. Knowing that Steven would give up his Gem powers so Connie could live.

As she turned towards the door, she was stopped by the sudden appearance of lion, fully healed and much smaller than before, he grunted at her to get on his back.

"Okay lion." Connie said skeptical, concerned about lion's intentions, "Just where are we going now?"

Lion simply let out a roar as they both shot through the portal. As it closed, Pearl quickly rushed in, only to see the two teleport away with Rose's Power. This meant that once again, the power was lost and all of Pearl's work was for nothing. Upon the realization of what had happened, Pearl whimpered as placed her hand onto her head and dragged them down, slicing through her face. She then let out a howling shriek that could be heard and felt felt throughout the entirety of the temple.
Everyone Makes Mistakes Chapter 8: The Gem
My fellow deviants, I welcome you to the eight Chapter of Everyone makes mistakes. Enjoy!

As you may notice, this chapter is part of a Collab project with a godly artist :iconshortsista: visit her site and see what I mean.

Also, the small poem she is singing is actually the lyrics of "Shuck by Purity Ring" www.youtube.com/watch?v=2krroV…

Due to the fact that this is our first fanfiction, It would be nice to have some constructive criticism.

Chapter 3: Letter from Two Gems

[*]

Greg Universe was a man who always looked at the brighter side of life. His motto for life was "if every pork chop were perfect, we wouldn't have hotdogs." Despite the fact that he was a failed singer turned wash car owner and the fact that his wife died shortly after Steven was born, he always had a positive outlook with things. However, a sudden arrival of Connie's parents, and the news they had for the aging optimist, would put all of his values and outlooks to the test.

"Pregnant. Connie is pregnant?' the man sighed as he sat down on a turned over bucket. "I can't believe this is actually happening." He then turned to Steven, who was sitting next to him and looking at him with a look of fear and desperation. This reminded Greg of when Steven told him about "birthday incident" he experienced a long time ago. Only this time, there was no magic or power to reverse what had been done.

"Dad" Steven said softly as he hugged his dad tightly. "I am so sorry, I didn't know this happened and I don't know what to do. I feel so scared."

Greg took a deep breath and smiled as he hugged Steven back. "It's going to be okay Steven, if every por-"

"Greg!" a voice startled both Steven and Greg; it was the voice belonging to one of two adults. Their names were Omar and Sarah  Maheswaran and they were known to Steven as the parents of Connie. "Our child is pregnant, and you are bruising it off like it means nothing? Do you know how important this is?"

Greg let go of Steven and stood up in front of Omar, although Omar was known as a security guard, Greg was not afraid of him. He knew him as a strict father who seemed to care more for his image than his family.

"Yes I do Omar, you seem to forget that Steven is my kid, and the last thing I want to do right now is to make him feel worst. By the way, where is Connie? Last time I checked, she had a part in this too?"

Omar chuckled. "Connie is at school right now. Unlike some people, she still has a life ahead of her and being knocked up by a low-income slacker is not going to change that."
Greg grew red in the face and added a poke of his finger to his argument with the prick in blue. "Of course she will have a life; it's the life in her belly. Do not forget that she did not even tell Steven until just recently. Why did it have to be now? Why not sooner? Probably because YOU were more concerned about how a teen mom for a daughter would look on your resume."

Omar grew red in the face too, stepping up into Greg's face and added a light shove of his hand to the augment with the fat idiot in sweatpants. "I was concerned that the child was not a freak like YOUR son. Last time I checked, Steven was not the child of three lesbian freaks. He was the offspring of you and your dead wif-"

Omar was cut off by a large fist making direct contact with his face, dropping him flat on his back with a angry Greg towering over him. Sarah tried to help Omar up, only to have him shake her off before wiping his bloody nose with his hand.

"Assaulting an officer is a serious felony". Omar hissed as he whipped out a retractable baton. "I will see to it that you are locked up for this."

Greg face did not change as he brought his fists up. "That wouldn't scare me even if you were an actual officer."

"STOP IT!" Steven yelled as he stood between the enraged fathers, halting their charge, and looking at the young gem between them. "I want you two to stop fighting and listen to me, how is this going to help me or Connie? What you guys are doing is going to tear both our families apart."

As the two dads looked at each other in disbelief, Steven went up to his dad and pulled his fists down. "Dad," Steven said to him in a more confident voice, "I know that you are worried about losing me like mom, but I know that you need to let go of the past and help me and Mr.  Maheswaran."

Steven then went up to Omar and pushed his baton away. "And Mr. Maheswaran, I know what I did was wrong to you and I know you must hate me and my dad right now, but you need to help us get through this. You need to stop thinking with your badge and start thinking with your heart. I love Connie and I will help her through everything. But in order to do that, I need to know if you love her too."

Omar just stood there in silence for a few minutes then he looked at his wife and then at his now trembling hands, within a few seconds, to the surprise of the young gem, the prideful security guard fell to his knees and grabbed Steven into a sobbing, bone-crushing, hug.

"I AM SO SOOORRRRYYY!" Omar bawled as he constricted Steven, "I NEVER MENT TO BE SUCH A PRICK! I LOVE MY DAUGHTER AND ALL I WANT HER TO HAVE A HAPPY LIFE!"

Steven released himself from the death hug as Sarah walked over to console her weeping husband.

"We will help support you Steven and our daughter." Sarah said to Steven as Omar looked to Steven and Greg before bear hugging the portly man. "The only thing I am concerned with is what will happen in the future? The child will need a family who can fully support a baby, and if anything happened to you well…"

Just then, there was a knock at the door, when Greg went to open it up, there was a tall man in a purple shirt with yellow circles.

"Harold?" Greg asked in confusion, "What are you doing here? Now is not the time to ask for a ride wash."

"Hey Greg." The man asked humbly, "Is Steven home?"

Steven walked up to the door so he could see who the man was. It was Mr. Smiley, the operator of fun land. He was known by Steven as a person who was constantly annoyed by Steven's unintentional destruction of his products. Which resulted in the banishment of the young gem from fun land and making him pay off the damage he did to the arcade? However, on this day, the man stood in front of the car wash door, with a hat between his hands and a look of hope in his eyes.

"Mr. Smiley?" Steven asked, hoping that this had nothing to do with more property damage.

"Hey Steven." Mr. Smiley said as he walked into the door, "I am sorry if I'm intruding, but I heard about your predicament, and I think I can help you out."

Greg and Omar looked at each other as they looked back with suspicion. "What do you mean by that  Harold?" Greg asked with caution, "Are you referring to help similar to the "Mustachio incident"?"

Mr. Smiley turned to Greg and put his hands up in defense. "Oh no no no no! It's nothing like that. I just think I can help us all out with this problem."

" Okay." Omar said with a tone of suspicion, unaware of the man's motives. "What is this "plan" of yours?"

Mr. Smiley then sat down on a plastic crate before directing his attention to the Universes and the  Maheswaran's. "You see, the misses and I have tried to have a child for a while now, but I can't have children because I'm sterile. In addition, we cannot adopt because of the lack of orphanages in beach city. The only option we had was to adopt a surrogate child from another parent who was giving them up. After I heard about your Predicament, I was wondering if perhaps…I can adopt Steven's child."

There was a long silence, it seemed like hours were passing by in the silence of the moment. The silence was finally broken by the sound of Steven walking over to Mr. Smiley and placing a hand on his shoulder.

"Mr. Smiley," Steven said to the man who looked at him with tearful eyes, "I have known you for a long time, and I know we have had our problems in the past; but I do know that you are great with kids at your arcade and at fun land. I know that you would be great if you had any. I also agree with Mr.  Maheswaran in wanting Connie to have a good life. So to ensure that I, Connie, and our child live a great life, I will allow you to adopt our son."

This resulted in a strange combination of laughing and crying as Mr. Smiley hugged Steven and proceeded to double-hug Greg and Omar, who awkwardly patted the crying man on the back.

"Thank you all so much!" Mr. Smiley said with tears flowing down his face, "I promise that your kid will be raised like one of our own and that you Steven, can use the fun-land rides and Arcade for the rest of your life free of charge."

"That's okay Mr. Smiley, you don't need to do that." Steven said while trying to sound more mature and humble, "but how about instead I help around your arcade? So I can pay for the bills when the baby is born?"

"Deal!" Mr. Smiley said as the boy and the man shook hands, "and please, call me Harold, you earned it. Now let's go get that paperwork finished."

As the two ran to the large truck, the three parents tailed behind, Greg and Omar both apologized for fighting with each other as Sarah talked on her cell phone.

"I just got off the phone with Connie," Sarah said as they reached the truck, "she agrees with the adoption and is going to tell Pearl the good news after she is done with school, now come on everyone, this is going to be a long drive to Shellpoint.

Steven was too busy helping Mr. Smiley figure out a name for the child to realize that he never told Pearl about the baby. As the truck drove off, a small pale mint colored moth buzzed out the window and up to the Temple, leaving a small trail of black specks in its wake.

[*]

"Hello Pearl?" Connie shouted as she opened the door to the gem residence, a few hours ago Connie had accepted the idea of letting Mr. Smiley adopt her and Steven's child. Once she was finished with school, she would go to the temple to inform the gems about the situation while Steven, Greg, Mr. Smiley, and her parents would go to the adoption clinic in Shellpoint city, which would be quite a long drive, to finalize the adoption. She would then take a bus to a special clinic across town so she could receive preparation for childbirth. First, Pearl needed to be informed.

"Pearl, are you home?"
As she walked into the house, she took of her hand and boots and placed them on the rack, and then placed her books on a nightstand. She remembered that Steven had given her permission to enter the gem abode if she needed to, and right now, she needed to.

"Peeaarrrlll?" Connie shouted as she looked around the kitchen and then the dining room, she then checked the top of the temple and then back down to Steven's room. She was confused, as she just saw Pearl through the window was she approached the temple.

"Maybe she is on one of her missions," Connie said to herself before noticing the Gem door. As she approached it, Connie felt a vibration from her belly, as the colored lights on the door began to glow. Connie looked at the door in awe before pressing one of the gems that caused the door to open. Connie could not see anything past the door, only an eerie black and a cold chill that was in the air.

"Hey Pearl, its Connie," Connie said as she crept into to the dark room, "Listen, I don't know if you found out but Steven and I-" Connie stopped in her tracks as she felt paper on her foot. As she squatted down to pick it, she saw it was a note that had the words "For Steven" Written on it. Considering it a letter regarding Pearl's absence, she then opened it up and proceeded to read the letter:

Dear Steven,
If you are reading this then Amethyst and I are already on a special mission to the Crystal Empire. I do not know how this has happened and I do not know if you will understand, but I think it is for your own safety if you know the truth. Pearl is suffering from The Obsidian Virus, a Gem pathogen that is responsible for the near-extinction of the gems who were not cured. Although Pearl has been able to keep control of it for years, now I fear the virus is starting to control her. This infection will cause Pearl to undergo a state of unpredictable psychosis. Because you are half-human, you are immune from the virus, but as long as Pearl is infected, you are in grave danger. Until Amethyst and I return with the cure, stay away from Pearl and do not interact with her as much as possible. If you see a black fluid discharge from Pearl, you must keep as far away from her as you can, I know that you care for Pearl, but no matter what she says, you have to stay as far away from her as you can. Be strong Steven, I can only hope that you can find this letter before we are too late.
Love,
Garnet

As soon as Connie finished the letter, she realized that Steven was in grave danger and she had to warn him. Just then, she was startled by a large metallic scraping noise, followed by a faint humming. Her heart began to race in her chest as the humming and scraping got closer and louder as she raced to the door. As she was about to reach the exit, she felt a hand grab her shoulder and turn her around to face her. There standing before her was Pearl, with a warm smile on her face. Connie saw that Pearl's eyes were a mix of black and blue and her cheeks had scars as if she was crying hot acid. Her Gem was now opaque and it had three large black cracks in it. Connie also noticed that the hand on her shoulder was bleeding and the blood was black and burning. As Pearl looked toward the young pregnant girl before her, Pearl looked down at her stomach and back into her terrified eyes.

"Hello Connie," Pearl hissed in a voice that shot fear into Connie's mind, "I see you are eating for two now?"

Before Connie could respond, the Gem quickly bludgeoned her across the head with the end of her spear. As Connie started to pass out on the floor, she could feel a warm trickle of blood on her head and see as Pearl bent down to look at Connie's eyes with a grin as the poor girl before her fell unconscious.
Everyone Makes Mistakes Chapter 3: The Letter

Okay everyone, this is the chapter before the big climax. I hope you are ready for the time of your life.

So a few hours ago, we had lost a close friend to the fanfiction family, although he was not known by many, I knew him as :iconstarchaser-75: We will miss his eccentric criticism, his uses of Voice and his song that was both joyous and horrifying.

Here is a prime example of his work, which will always have a place in my heart:
E.M.M. MST, Chpt. 1: Date with an Badfic Star: We’re back!
Voice: And we’re in for it this time!
Star: You see, it was a while ago that we first came upon the Steven Universe fanfic ‘Everyone Makes Mistakes’.
Voice: We wrote reviews for it! Remember?
Star: It seemed innocent enough at first glance, before we opened it. And then…
Voice: Then all hell broke loose.
Star: After all those reviews, we kinda forgot about it for a while.
Voice: But it came to our attention the other day that there was a whole community dedicated to this on DeviantART.
Star: And then the thought had occurred to me: Why don’t we riff this?!
Voice: Even though we’re banned from visiting DeviantART for the safety of our health, :icontrollface-mastah: was kind enough to help us out!
Star: Expect more of us from him. But anyway, since it’s probably too late to ask for :iconscrapsthefool:’s permission to riff this-
Voice: Can he riff it? Please?
Star: Not now, I’m talking. Anyway, let’s ge

Now, you might be wondering why Star left us. Well, thanks to  :crystal-gem-goddess:, she discovered that this was caused by a deviant known as :iconvoltaliathemajestic:. This deviant, harassed Star and drove him to remove his account on DA, and FF.net.

Here is a description of the incident, as described by :iconcrystal-gem-goddess::

t's very serious and it destroyed Star's life. He is scarred for life all because of Volt. 

Volt is 19; Star is 15. There is one problem...it is illegal. Mainly because of one thing, Volt would send him explicit messages which Star felt uncomfortable receiving...yet he didn't say anything. 

This is extremely serious because not only that, she would control his life. I stood up against her and I broke them up as Star begged me to do it for him...she told me to leave her and Star alone when he wants nothing to do with her. 

Volt would sexually abuse him at a young age....

Other than that, she would cyber bully others in the SU archive. For example, Serena Summers. Sure, her stories weren't great but that doesn't give Volt the right to be rude and to pick on her. Serena even suffered a horrible depression at the time and this was uncalled for her. I talked to Serena and offered to help her with her fics in which she happily took and she has gotten better. Serena was accepting of her mistakes and errors. Volt claimed that Serena was acting like a brat, but it was a lie. Volt came off wrong. 

Now many of you are wondering if it is just a misunderstanding or think it;s just a misread comment.

Well, how do you feel after seeing these:

My Bed of Wonders by VoltaliatheMajestic "This is the place where I'll dream of many fabulous things. Attached is the body pillow, which I use for humping whenever I think about Star."

Making Love with Wedding Cake by VoltaliatheMajestic "Yes, I really am making a helluva lot of love with Kim and Kanye's wedding cake while pretending it's my beloved Starman."

Sorry, not sorry. XD
Hey Sarah!Voice: I think this is a stupid idea.
Star: 'Oh, I think this is a stupid idea!' Ask me if I care.
Voice: Do you care?
Star: Let's see... no!
Voice: Fine.
:iconvoltaliathemajestic:, you asked for this! And here it is! (I'll just check off multiple, cause some of the other answers apply.)
IF WE HAD SEX:
[] Against the wall.
[x] On a bed.
[] Fast.
[] Doggy style.
[] In the shower.
[x] On the kitchen counter. (Sounds kinky.)
[] On the washing machine.
[] You're on top.
[] Anal.
[] We wouldn't.
[] I don't know...
[] The what
[] Over my dead body!
[] Oh, you would want that, wouldn't you?
[x] The things I'd do to you, guess for you being topless has it's advantages. (Just... don't ask. If you insist on asking, though, send me something on Fanfiction.net.)
IF YOU KISSED ME, I WOULD:
[x] Kiss back.
[] Blush.
[] Slap you.
[] Stare at you, wondering if we would kiss again. 
[] Laugh about it.
[] Bite your lip.
[x] If you work hard for it, maybe the tongues will play
 :iconvoltaliathemajestic:, you asked for this! 

Now that you know the truth (or at least, the visible part). What must be done? A Deviant ha been sexually harassed off this site, and Volta is to blame.

If you want to know more, contact 
:iconcrystal-gem-goddess:.

Th-thats all...

...eh...goodbye....

Adventure Time:

BMO

S5 e39 BMO with a gold star by ScrapstheFool

is held up to a wall by her arms, her expression is a look of fear as digital tears roll down her blushing cracked screen.

A large black hand with a grey sleeve is holding her up. The sleeve has a gold cuffing with a black "S" engraved on it.

As she struggles to break free of the hand's grasp, another black hand with the same details is starting to pry its index and middle finger into one the slots on BMO's chassis.

BMO is trying to push and kick the prying hand away with her feet but failing all the while saying phrases like "Scraps st-stop!" and "It's hur-hurting me!" and "I-I don't like this ga-game."

In addition, there is a voice (from the black handed man) who is saying the phrase: "You are mine now! Resistance is pointless.”

Ben 10 Omniverse:

There is a tall bridge; the bridge is over a large ocean. Ml-E

The More Things Change, Part 2 (154) by ScrapstheFool

Hot Stretch (441) by ScrapstheFool

is being held by her arms over the bridge by a dark figure in a grey tuxedo, he has a pitch black body, short black hair, and he has a large yellow smile and gold glasses (As shown below).
Scraps True Form by ScrapstheFool

ML-E is struggling while tears are flowing from her eyes (her left eye is bruised). Her legs are tied together by shackles, which are attached to a large metal block. She is begging the figure to stop, saying things like "Stop please!”, “I’m Sorry!”, “I don't wanna die!"

The figure, looking her face o face and dead in the eyes with his same smile, is saying only this line to her: "Let's see you dash out of this you freak."

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Lego Movie:


There is a large glass cylinder, this cylinder has scratches on it as if someone was trying to get out but soon realized that there is no hope in escaping this deathtrap.

On top on the cylinder is a smaller hexagon-shaped device with a large digital timer that reads in large red numbers 0:15, a countdown of some sort.

The device has a small nozzle pointing into the cylinder, like a showerhead in a bathroom. The top of the device is connected to a large hose that is connected to a large drum with the letters HF on it across a hazard symbol.

Inside the cylinder, there is a small Unikitty (not in Lego style but in a unikitty style similar to 

No Poo Poos, No Boo Boos, and No Hoo Hoos by thelivingmachine02 

or

 lying on her stomach on the floor with her front paws on her head. Her fur is mangled and bloody; her horn has broken off and is lying next to her with blood leaking out of the broken end.

She has various scratches and bruises on her body from failed attempts of escaping.

Her expression is a mixture of fear and false optimism as she is looking down at the small pool that is formed from the tears flowing from her face, which has a half-smile as she is saying the following words in hope that her last moments are positive: “Bubblegum,” “Butterflies”, “Cotton Candy.”

Standing before her and watching from outside of the cylinder is a tall man in a grey tuxedo, he has a pitch black body, short black hair, and he has a large yellow smile and gold glasses (As shown below).

Scraps True Form by ScrapstheFool

As he is standing there, he is holding a sign up that reads “STAY POSITIVE” in big bright yellow letters. While his other hand not holding up the sign is behind his back.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Amazing World of Gumball:

Nicole is standing over Gumball's body, which is tied up to a table with both arms streched out to the sides and his chest cavity is cut open. He also is wearing a oxygen mask and tears are rolling down his face and blood trickling out of the mask. 

Nicole is holding a bloody knife close to her chest and is crying as well her clothing and fur are bloody as well. Behind her is a tall man in a grey tuxedo, he has a pitch black body, short black hair, and he has a large yellow smile and gold glasses (As shown below).

Scraps True Form by ScrapstheFool

He is using his hands to strech Nicole's mouth into a smile. The Point of View of the image should be in front of Nicole and the man.

He is saying only one little word:

"Smile."

>Sonata Dusk:

1413781605219 by ScrapstheFool



being strangled like this:

3cbf1592813f5ce7eeb56fda64a554e5 by ScrapstheFool

Sonata has tears streaming down her face and  a large smile (open mouth) on her face. Her clothing also has to be ripped and her needs to appear beaten. Not to mention that there needs to be captions of weezing, chocking and gasping and her eyes need to be rolled back.


The Attacker looks like this : 

Scraps True Form by ScrapstheFool

as the attacker stares into Sonata's eyes as she gasps for air, he is saying to her: 

"Sing for me, my little Siren. Let me hear your bleats of perfection."

Basically part 4 is going to incorporate "Gempunk" elements.

Gempunk- Steven universe subgenre that involves Gem powered or Gem based technology.

animation to demonstrate how tiberium "Grows"

take note of the two unfortunate humans dropping dead as more tiberium appears.

cnc.wikia.com/wiki/Tiberian_wi…

These would be Gem-based wildlifein Su terms.

The same applies to the plants:
img2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20…
img3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20…
img3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20…


here is an image of an ion storm created by the presence of Tiberium:
img2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20…

this would all show that Tiberium's efforts are not protecting the earth but are destroying it instead. This would all make even diamond look insignificant

here are more images of a tiberium wasteland: 
img4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20…
img2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20…

if you want to know what those tentacular creatures are, they are a mutated species known as "Veinholes".

usually the first signs that Tiberium is beginning to arrive in a certain region is when either the tiberium Crystals begin to erupt from the grown or this happening to the trees and other plants:  img1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20…

If beach city survives until part 4, in the other half of part 3, those signs should be mentioned.
