Fanfiction Ideas (Non-EMM related)

I have several ideas for a few stories after I am done with the EMM series. As of now, here is the list:

1. MLP: Tendencies of a Lyncanthope: The story of a semi-demented pony and the doctor who fights for her freedom. (This will be a collaboration with :icondream-senpaii:)-[STATUS: Postponed]

4. The Amazing World of Gumball: The Retribution: The world of Nicole Watterson is turned upside down when she tries to find out who harmed her son, and she gets more than what she bargained for when she uncovers a secret involving a past she never knew she had. (This will be a collaboration with :iconnamygaga:)

5. Adventure Time: Age of Iron: When a enemy from the past comes to finish what it started, it's up to Finn and the Gang to prevent a second Mushroom war while discovering the origins of the original war and the creation of Ooo.

6. Lucky 17: John is a man who lives a simple life like anyone else. But unlike some people, he has a certain taste for life. A taste that will lead him to Camp Weedonwantcha, where he will understand the relationship between a predator and their prey.-[STATUS: Postponed]

7. MLP: EG: Pink and White: Two whole months since they lost the battle of the bands and the chance to rule the world, once a trio of sirens known as The Dazzlings, now reduced to tone-deaf students of Canterlot High. However, despite the situation, at least two of the three were off to a good start. Adagio on the other hand...that is a completely different story.-[STATUS: Postponed]

8. SFOE: Nova: After a horrible series of dreams, Star Butterfly begins to discover the truth about a blast from her past. A truth that may put her life, and the lives of everyone she loves, in peril.-[STATUS: In progress]

Chapter 2: Freedom


The Boneheart: Present Day


As expected, The Boneheart was a large dome made of bone, aside from that, there was nothing more than rocks floating around in a black sky. In fact, it seemed that the whole place was floating on a lone rock in the darkness. As a portal opened, star rolled out of the portal and stood up with a triumphant pose, with Marco walking out of the portal with caution before Star looked back to him and yanked him to her side.

"There it is Marco!" Star said with stars in her eyes as she pointed to the eerie gate of the Boneheart. "The source of my nightmares, and the answer to all out problems."

"Wait…how is this my problem?" Marco asked Star. "Aside from the fact that I should be finishing my homework right now."

"Just let me have this moment." Star replied quickly as she released Marco and approached the gate, studying the large femur on the front of the door.

"Hmmm…there must be a secret to this door Marco." Star said to the approaching Marco as she began to chew on her wand. "No one would leave this unguarded unless…"

Marco simply walked up to the Gate and pushed it, causing the huge bone door to open with a loud creak.

"…they forgot to guard it?" Marco said as he gestured to the door.

"Good thinking Marco!" Star said as she slapped her friend hard on the back before she ran into the building. "Now let's find ourselves a Nova."

"Heh…" Marco chuckled as he caught up to his bestie.

"What's so funny?" Star asked as she chuckled with him, using her want to illuminate the dark hallway.

"Oh, it just that in astrology, we learned that a Nova is actually a term for stars." Marco explained before he stopped laughing and turned pail.

"Wants wrong?" Star said as she chuckled nervously.

"It's a term referring to the death of a star actually." Marco replied blankly

As the two teens ventured into the Boneheart, there was not a single sound from either of them.


The Boneheart: Main Chamber: Present Day


As they reached the center of the Boneheart, Marco and Star saw a large black crystal in the center of the huge chamber, illuminated by a hole in the ceiling. The crystal was shaped like a large rounded cube and there was a small bowl on a pedestal with a blade in the center.

As Star and Marco approached the cube. Star squinted as she looked into the crystal, seeing the image of a man standing in the center. As she continued to examine the crystal. Marco noticed a slab of back rock next to the bowl and as he read it, he turned pail again as he turned to Star.

"Star, I think whoever put him here wants him to stay here." Marco said with a concerned tone as he looked to Star who was already shooting beams of narwhals and leech bombs at the cube.

"What?" Star said in confusion as she fired a butterfly beam at the cube, only for it to dissipate on contact. "What makes you say that?"

"Well according to this tablet, the only way to release this Nova guy, you will need to fill this bowl with blood." Marco explained as he looked at the bowl next to him."

"Ew…" Star replied in disgust as she stuck her tongue out. "No way that's happening, let's just grab a blood beetle and he'll do the rest."

"No Star you don't understand…" Marco said as he looked to Star with a concerned look. "…it has to be *your* blood."

Star flinched at the sound as she looked at the cube. She then walked over to Marco and the tablet and looked at it.

"This prison shall not be broken by the strongest bodkin n'r the swiftest spell. Only the Sanguine key of the rulers of Mewni shall open this lock."

"Wow…" Star said with a surprised tone as she looked up from the tablet. "…dark."

"See what I mean Star?" Marco explained as he turned Star towards him. "It's clear this guy is bad news. Let's just go home and forget about this. Okay?"

Star looked towards the crystal cube and then back to Marco. She then remembered that although he was occasionally a stick in the mud and "The Safe Kid", he was right about a lot of things.

"Okay Marco…" Star said with a small smile as she created a portal with her dimensional shears.

"Alright…" Marco said as entered the portal with a yawn. "Glad that you came to your senses."

As Star walked towards the portal, she looked back to the cube before she sighed and entered the portal, which quickly vanished.


Two Hours Later


Within the heat of the Boneheart, another portal opened before the crystal cube. Out from this portal, Queen and King Butterfly emerged, arming themselves towards the cube. Only to see that it was intact and unscathed.

"Ah! I knew it." Queen Butterfly said as she sheathed her sword. "I knew Star would not free Nova."

"No you didn't." King Butterfly said with a chuckle. "We both though she did, especially since "someone" forgot to sharpen the dimensional shears and charge them, resulting two hour delay in travel.

Queen Butterfly gave an irritated groan as looked to the cube and approached it. As she leaned in, she saw the palm of a large bluish green gauntlet slam on the glass in front of her face. This was followed by a low howling scream from the cube. As the two rulers of Mewni watched the gauntlet return into the darkness of the cube, a low muttering and light weeping could be heard. Queen Butterfly simply scoffed as she walked away. As she did, King Butterfly approached the cube and placed his hand on the surface. Seconds later, a small hand emerged and placed itself on the glass where King Butterfly's hand was.

"I'm sorry Nova." King Butterfly said softy. "I'm so sorry."

"Dear!" Queen Butterfly addressed coldly as she summoned a portal with her shears. "Get away from *him* this instant!"

King Butterfly sighed as he pulled his hand away and slowly walked away from the cube. Looking back, he saw the hand was still touching the wall of the cube for a few moments before it returned to the darkness within the cube. As he approached his Queen, he looked to her with a look of hurt and empathy.

"I know you still care for him darling, but he made his choices." Queen Butterfly explained as turned towards the portal. "Now he has to deal with the consequences."

"He's still our son you know." King Butterfly said to his Queen, stopping her in her tracks. "He still deserves our help, not to be locked away like an animal. All he wanted to do was-"

"Become a monster!" Queen Butterfly interrupted as she clenched her fist. "And I have no love for monsters."

King Butterfly hesitated as the Queen stepped into the portal. The King then sighed as he looked to the cube once more and then stepped into the portal.

Diaz Residence: Star's Room: Present Day


Star just laid in her bed as she stared at the ceiling, she could not find the ability to sleep as she thought about the prison and the being known as Nova. She continued to think about her encounters with beings like Toffee and Ludo and then thought about the beings from her adventures with Marco. As she thought about him, she then felt her heart jolt. For some time now, she was developing a strange bond towards him, a strange feeling she never felt before, and it felt strong, stronger than her feelings for the boy known as Oskar. As she turned in her bed and tried to fall asleep, she became so frustrated, she grabbed her pillow and screamed into it.

But as she pulled her head from the pillow, she heard the call from her magic mirror. As well as the call of her mother, the powerful, and scary Queen Butterfly.

Star quickly rushed up to the mirror and made a mocking salute.

"A den-sun!" Star shouted as she saluted. "All hands up speck!"

"Very funny Star!" Queen Butterfly sighed as she was sharpening her pair of dimensional shears. "How are things over at earth?"

"Everything is a-ok!" Star said with a cheerful demeanor. "Everything has been quiet since Toffee was taken care of and Ludo and his cronies have been a lot better since they began operating that whole food market in town."

"I...see…" Queen Butterfly said as she gave a suspicious look. "How have you been though? Has anything strange happened recently?"

As Star was about to explain her dreams, a voice in her head suddenly told her to stop, and instead say:

"Nope!" Star lied with a grin. "As I said, everything's been hunky-dory!"

"Are you sure?" Queen Butterfly asked her daughter. "Because Glossaryck told me you asked him something about a "Nova".

"Oh yeah, it was a question for about studying stars." Star lied again, she had years of practice to perfect the art. "I think Marco called it…Asstomericky."

"Alright then." Queen Butterfly said with a sigh of relief as she smiled towards her daughter. "Just call me if you have any issues involving Mewni, alright."

"Got ya Mom!" Star said with a toothy grin as she hugged the mirror. "Love ya!"

"Of course darling." Queen Butterfly replied with a warm smile. "I love you too."

The two gave their good byes as the mirror shut off. Star then sighed in relief as she turned around and saw her pair of dimensional shears on a nearby table. As she looked up, she saw her reflection in the mirror, and for an instant, she saw the man with red clubs on his cheeks and the bluish green gauntlet before he vanished.

"I'm gonna find out who you are and why you want me." Star said as she grabbed the shears and opened a portal. "Even if I have to break ya out myself."

The Boneheart: Nova's Prison: Present day

Star stormed out of the portal and approached the bowl with the blade within it. As she looked at the blade in the center, she looked at her hand.

"I want to believe what Marco said and I feel that you deserve to be in there" Star said as she looked up to the crystal cube, seeing a figure standing inside, almost as if it was expecting her to act. "But I feel like I know you, and I have to free you."

Star looked back to the bowl and placed her hand on the blade in the center, as she took a deep breath, she stabbed her hand through the knife, wincing as she felt the blade pierce into her skin. As she pulled her hand away, she watched as her blood slowly trickled down the blade, touching the base of the blade and the bowl. As soon as it did, the pedestal and bowl sank into the floor.

"Okay…I did it." Star said out loud as she clenched her bloody hand. "How what?"

Suddenly, Star saw the crystal cube before her began to crack as a roar was heard from within, the whole chamber rumbled as the cube began to crack even more until it shattered with a huge pulse of light, knocking Star onto a wall. As the teen shook her head and rubbed it, she looked ahead and saw the cube was gone, but a familiar figure was where the cube was, on his hands and knees, wearing a suit of armor and a bluish green gauntlet on his right arm. Star recognized him as the man from her dreams and she quickly stood up, approaching him with her wand armed towards him.

As soon as Star was behind him, the man grunted and coughed as he slowly stood up. Star watched as he slowly turned towards his liberator and looked at her. As soon as he did, his eyes widened as he raised his hand towards her.

"Star…?" The Man asked softly as he raised both hands upwards towards her. "Star is that you?"

"Yes…I'm Star Butterfly from Mewni." Star said cautiously as she aimed her wand at the man. "You're that Nova guy, aren't you?"

In that instant, the man smiled and began to laugh as he brushed back his hair with his hand. Star looked at him with curiosity before he replied.

"Of course I am!" Nova said with a cheerful expression. I'm Nova Butterfly, I'm your brother!"

Star paused as she looked to the man with a shocked and confused expression. After a few moments she replied with a simple but elongated…


"Yes, I'm your brother. Nova." The Man replied as she approached the young teen, only to halt as she aimed her wand at his face.

"Listen, I have no idea who you are." Star said in a commanding voice. "But I have no brother, and if I did, he would be an awesome and cool brother, not some crazy wierdo."

Nova stepped back before he began to think. He then looked to Star and smiled.

"When you were three and the guard accidentally fell asleep while watching you, you snuck into mother's chambers and stole her wand. You then nearly burned down your play room and turned father into…"

"…A giant eggplant man with the face of a dog." Star finished as she lowered her wand and stared at Nova with a shocked expression on her face.

"You asked mother if you wanted to keep him as a pet." Nova explained as he chuckled and wiped his eye with his gauntlet. "She was so mad at you, saying you would never wield the wand at this rate. But look at you now."

"Okay, I'm confused and amazed." Star said as she rubbed her arm, winching as she clasped her bleeding hand. "I'm…Conmafuzed."

"Here, allow me." Nova approached Star and placed her injured hand in his hand and placed his gauntlet over it, in an instant, he removed his gauntlet and the wound was gone, no scar or anything.

"Wow!" Star said as she looked at her hand and then to Nova. "How did you do that? I can't even do healing magic that well."

"I can do more than heal wounds." Nova replied as he pointed his gauntlet at Star's head. "I can also repair lost memories."

In that instant, there was a flash of light and Star saw memories flow into her head. Certain memories, such as when she rode a carriage by herself as an infant, had Nova chasing her instead of her father, and when she and her other Bestie Pony Head were chased by monsters for stealing their gold, it was Nova who came to their rescue. As the memories synched in her mind, Star looked to Nova and a grin began to grow on her face.

"Do you believe me now Star?" Nova asked as he gave a warm smile.

Star's grin grew until it stretched across her entire face. Her eyes grew like dinner plates as she stared at her long lost brother.

"Um…Star…?" Nova said with concern as he waved his hand in front of her face. "Are you alright?"

Star began to make a low pitch squee which began to increase in pitch as she slithered up to Nova and clung to him like a leech, before he could say anything, Nova was ambushed by the loud screaming of his sister in his ear.

"I HAVE A BROTHER!" Star screamed into Nova's ear. "I HAVE AN AWESOME AND COOL BROTHER!"

"I know." Nova said as he picked star off of him and placed her before him. As he pulled his hands away, Star clung to his gauntlet and gazed at it with awe.

"Ooooh…it's just like in my nightmares." Star said as she began to chew on her wand. "Why is it blue?"

"I'll explain everything when we leave." Nova replied with a chuckle as he pulled her wand out of her mouth. "Now where can I rest for the night? Being imprisoned in a timeless void can do numbers on a Mewian's internal clock."

"Oh! I know just the place!" Star said with a grin as she whipped out a pair of dimensional shears.


Diaz Residence: Kitchen: Several Hours Later


It was Saturday and Marco work up and walked sluggishly into the kitchen, his eyes were still booting up as he grabbed the cereal from the cupboard and the milk from the fridge before he sat down and began eating his cereal. As he did, he turned to see the tall man with blond hair, red clubs on his cheeks, and a blueish green gauntlet sitting next to him.

"Sup." Marco said as he took a bit from his cereal.

"Hello…human." Nova said as he examined the contents of the table. "I trust you slept soundly under my sister's care.

"Uh-huh, I sure did." Marco mumbled. "You have a compassionate sister."

"Thank you human." Nova replied "By the way, I am Nova."

"Nice to meet you Nova." Marco replied with a mumble as he bit into a spoonful of cereal.

Nova then turned to Star, who was standing at the opposite end of the table with a wide starry eyed grin on his face.

"Give him a minute." Star said as she extended a finger while keeping her smile on.

As the two siblings watched Marco eat his cereal, the thought about the new guest final slinked in brain. In that instant, Marco yelped loudly, spitting out his cereal as he shot up and made a karate pose towards Nova.

"What the what?" Marco shouted at Nova, his arms aimed towards the unexpected guest. "Who the heck is this?"

"SURPRISE!" Star shouted as she created a rainbow above Nova. "Say hello to my long lost brother: Nova Butterfly!"

"Nova?" Marco asked with concern. "As in the guy who was in your nightmares? The guy who was imprisoned in that bone place?"

"I understand your concern human, but I also appreciate the concern for my little sister's well-being." Nova said as he stood up and placed his gauntlet against his chest in a salute. "It is good to see her protection by noble hands, even by the hands of a…lesser being."

"Hey!" Marco said as he pointed his finger at the Mewnian. "I'm no lesser being. I'm a green belt in karate and I've helped Star save the multiverse while you were playing Shawshank Redemption."

"Hey guys, chill out." Star interjected as she stood between the two men. "No need to get all "done zupedy" on each other."

"It's "one-upety" Star." Marco corrected. "Also, I am curious as to why you, the brother of Star, were imprisoned in that place in the first place?"

"I was imprisoned there by an old demon long ago." Nova explained to his sister and her friend. "After I killed him, he cursed me to be immobilized until the blood of my family would free me. But no one knew where I was, so I was sentenced to an eternity of isolation…until you found me Star."

"But then why doesn't Star have any memory of you." Marco asked as he squinted his eyes in suspicion. "We both went to the home of father time and saw her memories, and neither of us saw you in any memories."

"Oh! Oh! Marco!" Star interjected gleefully as she tugged on Marco's Pajamas. "It turns out that my parents removed all my memories of Nova from my head and altered them."

"Really?" Marco said with suspicion as he glared at Star's brother. "So he just repaired your memories, just like that?"

"Of course." Nova explained as he pointed to his gauntlet. "The right spell can reverse any amnesia spell in an instant."

"Uh-huh…" Marco replied as he pointed his finger at Nova. "But what about her nightmares! What were those about?"

"She must have been wearing out the spell on her own and her suppressed memories of me were emerging through her dreams." Nova explained as he stroked his chin. "Which would normally be impossible unless she was in direct physical contact with a powerful magical object, like her wand, for a constant period of time."

Both Marco and Nova looked to Star who was watching the two walk while resting her elbow in the table, resting her head on her hands, and gnawing on her wand.

"What?" Star said while chewing on her wand. "What are you looking at?"

"Well that explains that." Nova commented as he pulled Star's wand out of her mouth. Before he looked back to Marco "Now have I fulfilled your curiosity and proven myself to you, human?"

"Just one more question." Marco said as he pointed to his gauntlet. "What's up with that thing on your arm?

"You mean "The Gauntlet"?" Nova replied as he raised his gauntlet. "This is an ancient artifact that the Mewnian Gods bestowed upon the people that would eventually found Mewni. Within this gauntlet, there lies the very essence of magic itself. "

"Wow!" Star said with awe as she rubbed the Gauntlet with her hands. "So it's like my wand, only better?"

"Of course." Nova replied as he placed Star in his lap. "In fact, the very energy from the Gauntlet was used to create the wand. However, like the Gauntlet, that part of history became lost in time. Until I discovered The Gauntlet and used it to conquer my foes and kill that demon that imprisoned me."

"Awesome!" Star said as she gazed at her brother with awe before she looked at the clock, which read 8:23 AM.

"Ohmygosh! Marco! The bus is almost here!" Star screamed as she shook Marco like a rag doll. "We're gonna be late for school!"

Marco simply stood up and screamed loudly as he bolted up the stairs and into his room while Nova and Star sat below. Nova then looked out the window and saw the yellow school bus outside.

"Is he expecting that…thing?" Nova said as he pointed towards the bus.

"Yeah, but he won't make it in time." Star said as she poured a cup of apple juice and downed it. "There's no way he'll make it in time.

"I'll be the judge of that." Nova said as he stood up and walked towards the door.


Ten Minutes Later


Marco finished putting on his shoes as he was hopping out the door, stopping to see Nova standing before the school bus with his gauntlet aimed at the bus driver.

"You may continue when ready human." Nova said as he gestured towards the bus. "I halted this "school bus" for you."

"Uh…thanks." Marco said to Nova as he entered the door, he then saw the Bus driver was shaking like a leaf and his hair was white as snow.

"Th-th-there wa-was a ro-room…" The bus driver stammered quietly as Marco entered the Bus. "…a room with no-no lights…"

As Marco sat in one seat with Star next to him, Star opened the window and poked her head out towards her brother.

"Aren't you coming with us bro?" Star said to Nova. "You totally have to try this out."

"I'll be with you shortly Star." Nova said with a grin as he waved his hand. "In the meantime, you enjoy yourself."

Nova then looked to the bus driver and nodded his head, causing the driver to floor it and bolt down the road. Nova watched as the bus drove off with a young girl waving her arms out the window towards him. Nova smiled as he turned and walked back into the house. Looking around, he walked into the kitchen and looked around, noticing the note on the fridge, he approached the note and began to read it.


Dear Marco,

Your mother and I are visiting your abuela for the week. We wanted you to come with us, but your abuela didn't want to see you for some reason.

We have left you some meals in the fridge for the week and some money on the counter. Remember to clean up after yourselves if you and Star decide to have some fun.

Love you always,

Mom and Dad.


Nova glared at the last two lines before he plucked the note from the fridge and burned it in his hand. He then walked up the stairs and into Star's room. Looking around, he then noticed the large mirror on the wall and approached it.

"Mirror…mirror on the wall…" Nova said with a cold tone. "…call no one."

As it began to call "No-One", the image of a light blue humanoid slime creature appeared in the mirror.

"Hello? Who's there?" No-One asked. "Are you that stripper I ord-"

Nova raised his gauntlet towards the mirror and fired a bolt of orange light from the palm, piercing through the mirror and shattering it to pieces. As he bent down and picked up one of the shards of the mirror, he looked back up to the mirror and smiled as he turned around to walk away.

"Sorry…" Nova said with a chuckle as he placed the mirror shard in his pocket. "…wrong number."


Echo Creek Academy: Miss Skullnick's lair…er…I mean…classroom: Half an hour later


Marco and Star sat and stared at the huge troll that was writing on the chalkboard, this was Miss Skullnick, a school teacher who was unfortunately transformed into a troll due to Star's antics. However, the teacher has been quite used to it since then.

"Today we'll be talking about the concept of differential calculus." Miss Skullnick growled as she moved towards her desk and sat down. "Which you will probably use in your everyday lives to accomplish everyday tasks."

"Oh! My! Gosh!" Star squealed with an anticipated grin. "I wonder if I can use this calcronsus to improve on my magic. Or even help Nova!"

"Star, Miss Skullnick was being sarcastic." Marco explained to Star with a sigh. "Remember our talk about taking things too seriously."

"Nope." Star said with an innocent grin as she grinned gleefully ahead towards the chalkboard.

Marco sighed as he the felt a finger poke his shoulder. Marco turned to see the Jackie Lynn Thomas, the girl of his dreams, looking straight at him. Marco felt his heart stop in place and his brow dampen with sweat as he stared into the aqua eyes of the girl sitting behind him.

"Hey Marco." Jackie said to Marco. "Could I borrow a pen?"

While he continued to stare into Jackie's eyes like an awkward zombie, he picked up his pen and handed it to her. As she took it from his hands, he felt her finger come into contact with his skin. From this moment onward, the skin cells of Marco's hand that were within the range of contact would forever be miniature shrines to this moment, when Marco Diaz held the hand of Jackie Lynn Thomas for almost a Nano second…ugh…

"Thanks Marco." Jackie said as she leaned back to her desk and began writing. Marco then nodded as he leaned back into his desk and pulled a spare pen from his pocket. Trying to disturb the hidden wand that was forged from that second of contact.

Star, who was watching the whole thing, felt a strange feeling that she had never felt before. She was glad to see that Marco was beginning to improve with his relationship with Jackie, but something within her was feeling as if it wasn't right. That Jackie was not meant to be with Marco and that someone else was meant to be with him, someone who knew him more that Jackie did and related to him better. Perhaps someone like…

As Star began to divulge into her mind regarding this strange feeling, her attention was drawn towards the sight of the principal of the school opening the door and gesturing to the class.

"Here's her classroom, just as you requested Mr.…Butterfly." Principal Skeeves said as he wiped sweat from his balding head.

Star's previous thoughts vanished as she watched Nova enter the classroom and looked around. As he noticed the smiling Star and the nervous Marco among the students, he smiled and waved his gauntlet towards them.

"Hi Star…hello human." Nova greeted the two. "I am here to observe this so called academy, but why aren't you training for combat?"

"Well they do have something like that." The Principal said with a nervous smile. "We call it gym."

"Is that so?" Nova said as he noticed an apple on the table and picked it up with his gauntlet. As he clenched it in his hand, the apple began to ripple as it turned into a solid gold apple. Principle Skeeves eyes grew into dinner plates as he gazed upon the golden apple.

"I wish to see this "Gym"." Nova said with a smile as he tossed the apple towards Skeeves, who caught it with a gleeful smile. "…and I would like my sister to accompany me if you will allow it."

"Anything you want sir." Principal Skeeves said with a grin as he walked out of the room, still gazing at the golden apple in his hands. "Anything you want."

As Nova looked towards the class, he saw Miss Skullnick sitting at her desk. Nova then flinched back in horror as he aimed his gauntlet towards the troll teacher.

"MONSTER!" Nova shouted at he fired a beam of energy towards Miss Skullnick, who barely dodged the attack as she jumped out the window. Miss Skullnick then stood up, brushed herself off and turned towards her attacked.

"Hey, you're the monster, what with that ugly mug of yours!" Miss Skullnick shouted back. "…and since I'm a teenager, that's twice as painful."

As Nova aimed his gauntlet again, Star swooped before her brother and blocked him off.

"Nova stop!" Star shouted to her brother as she lowered his gauntlet. "She's not a monster. I turned her into a monster by mistake."

Nova looked up to Miss Skullnick, who scratched her backside as she grumbled loudly.

"Are you sure she wasn't a monster already?" Nova asked with a concerned expression.

Star then climbed up onto Nova and looked him in the eye.

"Yes I am sure." Nova said with the lecturing sayings of a scolding mother. "Now promise that you won't hurt anyone while you're here."

Nova sighed as he lowered Star back onto the ground.

"I promise Star." Nova said as he watched the little girl point her pinkie towards him

"What is this?" Nova asked as he looked at the extended digit.

"Pinkie promise." Star said with a serious tone. "Earth's most powerful pact of trust and a sigh of friendship for certain communities."

Nova looked to Marco, who responded with a shrug. Nova then grabbed the digit with his fingers and shook Star's hand.

"I promise." Nova said as he smiled towards his sister.

Star quickly smiled as she grabbed Nova's hand and pulled him out of the classroom.

"Marco come on." Star said to her friend as she stuck her face back into the classroom. "We're going to gym."

Marco looked around and then sighed as he stood up and walked out of the classroom, looking back and giving a peace sign before Star grabbed him by his hoodie and abducted him from the room. As soon as they were gone, Miss Skullnick walked back through the hole in the side of the room and sat before the remains of her desk.

"Alright, now that that's taken care of." The Troll teacher said as she addressed the rest of the class. "How many of you brats know what a function is?"


Echo Creek Academy: Gym: Present day


Marco, Star and Nova watched from the bleachers as the infamous Brittney Wong and her crew of cheerleaders begin their cheerleading session. As usual, the queen bee of the group was driving her squad into the ground. Andrea was exhausted from doing almost thirty somersaults in a row, Sabrina shattered her pelvis again from an unfortunate accident during a high dive and split, and Chantelle was nearly broke her spine under the cheerleader's pyramid.

"I said a pyramid, not a triangle!" Brittney Hitler barked through her mega phone. "Make it more pyramid-y! Now!"

"Are all of your leaders this cruel?" Nova asked as he watched the teenage tyrant scream at her cheerleaders. "Or is she a monster?"

"That's Brittany Wong for you." Marco said as he pulled out a sandwich from his backpack and took a bite. "She is the most spoiled and pretentious girl here."

"Is that so?" Nova said as he watched the teen's line up before the Queen Bee ouch.

"That was terrible!" Brittney Jong-Un shouted at her cheerleaders. "You all are the worst excuse of cheerleaders I have ever seen!"

The girls groaned in pain as their hearts shattered from the cruelty of their head cheerleader's words.

"Not even the captains of the Mewni army were this harsh." Nova said as he watched Chantelle slump onto the ground in exhaustion. "Those poor humans don't deserve this."

"Eh, what can you do?" Star asked with a shrug, before she turned to Nova with a glare. "Aside from killing or maiming anyone."

Nova raised his hand defensively as he continued to watch the evil cheerleader walk up to Chantelle and lift her up by the hair.

"Especially you Chantelle" Brittney Qaddafi hissed to the crying girl in her grasp. "You suck even more than during the football game with the Warriors. What the hell is wrong with you?"

"I'm sorry Brittney…" Chantelle cried as she tried to pry Brittney's hands off her hair.

"Oh you will be" Brittney Castro hissed with a smile as she tossed Chantelle onto the ground. "Cause until you can master the art of carrying a human pyramid on your back…"

Brittney then snapped her fingers as a pair of cheerleaders walked in with a large cinderblock in their hands. Chantelle looked with horror as they placed the large block of concrete before the teen with a thud. Brittney then sat on it and looked to Chantelle with an evil smile.

"…you will carry this cinderblock on your back like a table until I say so." Brittney Putin explained with a grin.

"Is that even legal?" Star asked Marco as she summoned a small rainbow and took a bite out of it, watching as Nova began to storm down the bleachers. "I don't know why no one's stopping here

"Well, your interactions with this world caused a lot of things to become quite relaxed." Marco explained as he watched Nova storm down the bleachers. "It's actually quite sad when you think abo-"

Marco and Star watched in shock as Nova stormed down the bleacher, picked up the cinderblock and tossed it away. The Cheerleaders, Star and Marco, watched the cinderblock fly through a window and smash into a conveniently parked limousine with the initials "B.W" initialed on the sides. As Nova brushed off his hands, he turned to see the cheerleading tyrant looking right up to him, her face was as red as a chili pepper and her eyes were bloodshot with rage.

"Star told me that there were no monsters at this school." Nova said as he picked Chantelle up and placed her on his back. "But as far as I have seen, she was wrong."

"JUST WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?" Brittney Stalin screamed at the Mewnian before her. "DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHO I AM?"

"From what I can speculate, you are a spoiled rotten human who was handed everything on a silver platter and you believe that everything have a monetary cost." Nova explained as he noticed Marco and Star approach with concern. "You have no experience with independence and you expect everyone kneel to you like a god."

Nova then looked to a concern Star, remembering his promise to her as he then looked to the enraged Brittney. He then raised his gauntlet up and smiled.


Suddenly, Brittney suddenly felt her voice fall flat as she began to make a muffled shout. As the teen touched her face, she felt a flat patch of skin where her mouth used to be.

"I also know that you have a problem with bossing people around." Nova said with a grin as he stroked his chin. "Which I've taken the liberty of taking care of."

Brittney Zedong then noticed her reflection in Nova's armor, which was missing a mouth. Brittney let out a muffled scream as she dashed out of the Gym. The other Cheerleaders then looked to Nova, who looked to Star and Marco.

"What?" Nova asked as he lowered Chantelle off his back. "I didn't kill her."

"I know." Star said with a raised eyebrow and a wave of her finger. "But did Brittney really deserve that?"

"YES!" the entire group of cheerleaders (and Marco) shouted towards the young girl, who was blown back by the gust.

As Nova watched Marco helped Star up, he felt a hand tug on his suit. Nova then turned around and saw Chantelle standing before him, fidgeting with her hand as she smiled meekly.

"Thanks for sticking up for me mister." Chantelle said with a small blush. "I really appreciate it."

"There is no need to thank me human, it's in the nature of a hero like myself to protect those in need." Nova explained as he raised his gauntlet and summoned a small crystal flower and handed it to her. "Besides, a human of your…attraction should not undergo such cruelty."

Chantelle face blushed as she clenched the flower in her hand.

"You…You think I'm…cu-cute?" Chantelle stammered as her face turned bright red.

"Is that a good thing?" Nova said with a confused expression. Because you're look as red at that other girl.

Nova watched as Chantelle fell onto the floor like a statue. Marco then approached Nova with a disturbed expression.

"You do know she's sixteen right?" Marco asked Nova.

"I'm seventeen." Nova replied to Marco as he turned to him. "The Bone heart halted my aging process."

"Ah!" Marco replied as he looked to Star, who was smiling at Marco.

"What?" Marco asked with a slight irritated tone.

"Perhaps you should talk to Nova about "a certain someone."" Star said with air quotations

Marco scoffed as he picked up his backpack, but then he watched as Nova approached Chantelle and helped her up, noticing his calm attitude towards a girl that had obviously caught his attention.

Perhaps there was a thing or two he could learn from the brother of his best friend, I mean, what's the worst that could happen?

Chapter 1: Nightmare


Unknown Location: Present day


"Star…Star free me!" the voice said as it whispered to the young girl before it. "Please…!"

"G-g-get away from me!" The blond haired girl shouted with a shudder as she aimed her wand at the figure, sweat trickling down her brow "I'm warning ya bro! I know how to use this!"

"Star…please!" The figure continued to plead as it moved closer. "You have to free me. You have to…"

"Hyper Rainbow Blast!" Star shouted as she fired a large rainbow beam from her want and through the figure before her, shattering the shadow like glass. As she watched the shards fade away she looked around at her location. She was at the base of a cliff as she could see an orange light up towards the top of the cliff. As she climbed to the top, she gasped in horror as she saw she was back home, in the Kingdom of Mewni, but it was all ablaze with fire, not accidental "Star" fire, but legit fire.


As she slid down the cliff and rushed into the burning city, she saw two bodied before her. It was her parents, King and Queen Butterfly, both of which were wounded and bloody. A broken sword beside her father's corpse, shattered from an apparent brawl, the pieces were warped and melted. As she approached her dead parents, she fell into her knees, a feeling of pain and numbness began to fill inside her, as well as the desire to hire a butler and live in a cave. Suddenly, she saw her mother gasp and cough as she opened her eyes and looked to Star.

"Mom!" Star shouted as she scooted forward and lifted her mother up.

"Star…" Queen Butterfly muttered as she coughed up blood. "How…could…you…"

"Could what?" Star asked as tears formed in her eyes. "What did I do?"

Before the queen could respond, she coughed up more blood before she fell limp. Star's heart sunk as she then felt a small warmth before her, much like a small campfire. Looking up, she saw a man standing above her. He had blond hair like Star's but it was shorter and pulled back. He also had two red clubs on her cheeks. He also was wearing what appeared to be a silver armor with the Mewni insignia on the breastplate, the armored figure also had blueish green gauntlet with golden star knuckles and a larger red star on the back of the hand. As he looked down to Star, he knelt on one knee and examined the bodies between them.

"There was nothing we could do for them Star." The man explained as tears began to trickle from his eyes. "If they only listened to me, then none of this would happened."

"What happened?" Star asked the man as she stood up and aimed her wand at him. "Who are you?"

The man looked at Star, studying the tearful expression on her face as he reached out towards her with his hand. Star watched as a blueish green gauntlet grasped the wand and lowered it before the man stood up and knelt down to her.

"You know who I am." The man explained as he was now behind her. "You knew who I was but they made you forget me…forget who I was. But if you don't know who I am…"

As the man bent downward to Star's ear, his next few words turned the magical teen's blood cold.

"…then why do you know my name?"

Star gasped as she turned around and backed away from the man. She watched as he raised his gauntlet and all the fire around the two of them began to flow into the palm of his hand. As he clenched it, he turned to her and watched as she aimed her wand at him again.

"What do you want from me?" Star asked as she felt her hands shaking. "Tell me what you want."

The man smiled as he stood before the girl. As Star blinked, the man was gone. But as she turned around, she saw the man again, only this time, he grabbed her head with his gauntlet and raised her into the air, causing the teen to drop her wand in the process.

"Freedom…" the man said warmly as he looked at the girl in his grasp. "…my little Star…"

Star tried to pull the gauntlet off her face, but the man's grip was too strong. As she could see the palm of the gauntlet shine a blinding light, she could hear a voice call out to her.

"Star…hey Star…" said the familiar voice. "Hello…Earth to star!"

As she looked into the blinding light, she could swear she saw another figure right in her face screaming at her.



Diaz Residence: Star's Room: Present Day


Marco Diaz was once an ordinary kid, in fact, he was known as "The Safe Kid". A straight A student who main goal in life was to survive the everyday social awkwardness and to one day clam the heart of his childhood crush, Jakie Lynn Tomas. However, that was before he was selected as the guide to a particular "exchange student", a student who happens to be living with his eccentric parents in a large tower that was jammed into the side of their house, a student who has been taking the boy on a wild adventure of beating up monsters and enduring weird hijinks for about a year and a half now (It would have been longer, but after an incident with father time and the mud dimension, things...kind of halted for a while).

Now this same student was going to be late for school, and the same boy in charge of her was trying to wake her up, only to feel the embrace of a fist to the face as the magical teen gave him a sharp uppercut, followed by a hard kick in the stomach, knocking the boy into a wall. Star looked around in confusion as she whipped out her wand and aimed it like a gun around the room, suddenly stopping with a gasp as she saw Marco stuck in the wall.

"Marco?" Star said with a huff as she jumped out of bed and rushed over to the boy, pulling him out of the boy wall crater and pointing her wand at him like a scolding mother. "Now what did I say about waking me up like that? What was that saying again? "Fool me one…you can't get fooled again?"

"No…" Marco replied with a winded groan as he looked up at the boy shaped dent in the ceiling…and on the other wall…and on the floor…and on the bed (get your brain out of the gutter). "But there is this think we have known as school you know."

"I know I know." Star replied as she tapped her wand, instantly proofing from her pajamas and into her basic clothing. "I just…I've been having these weird dreams lately."

"I can tell…" Marco said as he stretched his back, feeling his spine pop as he brushed small rocked from his red sweater. "…but could we discuss this, say, after we catch the bus."

"Star gave Marco a look of disappointment as she raised her wand and said "Teleportus Toschoolbusicus" and in a flash of light, the two teens were sitting on the school bus. Marco looked around in confusion as he looked at his lap, his backpack was there before him. As he opened it, he saw his school notes, homework, and a homemade lunch, courtesy of Mr. Diaz.

"Oh wow!" Marco said in astonishment. "You've really gotten better at this. I mean, we're even inside the bus this…"

Marco trailed off at the sight of the magic teen who was staring daggers at him.

"The nightmare?" Marco asked Star as he zipped up his bag.

Star nodded as she continued to glare at him. Despite the intention of intimidation, her stink eye was rather adorable.

"Alright." Marco sighed as he leaned into his bus seat. "Lay it on me."


Echo Creek Academy: School Grounds: Ten Minutes Later


Ah school, the breeding ground for social anxiety and a prime example of social Darwinism. There were the nerds, the cheerleaders, the jocks, the bullies, the plastics, the goths, and Janna. As the bus pulled up to the entrance of the school, the student's rushed out like a pack of beasts. With the stragglers like Star and Marco tagging behind.

"…and he called me "his little Star…"" Star explained as she jumped off the stairs of the bus. "…right before he fired his hand thingy."

"Huh…" Marco responded as he scratched his head. "So he said you know his name?"

"Kinda…" Star replied as she began to chew on her wand. "I just…can't remember what it was. I mean, a second ago I know it, but when I think about it."

"…it vanishes." Marco interjected as he placed his books in his locker. "I know how you feel, sometime I forget a name, so I say it ten time in my head, which helps with names like…"

Marco trailed off as he saw a sight that always caused his brain to shut down and his blood to flow south. There, moving towards him on a familiar skateboard and wearing a familiar helmet, was Jackie Lynn Thomas, the love of young Marco's life, or at least, only to Marco. As she passed the boy, she waved at him and gave a simple "Hey Marco." The boy then replied with a shaky "Hey Jackie." As he watched the girl of his dreams skate around the corner, he was brought back into reality with a large clap of hands in front of his face.

"Marco! For crying out loud!" Star shouted dramatically at the young boy. "This is serious!

"I was listing!" Marco shouted defensively. "But you need to relax Star, whatever that dream was, it'll make sense in time. In fact, some people believe that dreams are made from the thoughts, fears and feelings we have towards things."

"Really?" Star said as she rubbed her arm. "So…I shouldn't worry so much about this."

"Of course." Marco replied. "In fact, I had a dream that I saved Jackie from a giant tentacle monster, which was-"

Marco stopped as he turned to see two cheerleaders giving him the stink eye and several head shakes of disgust before walking off.

"Never mind." Marco sighed as he bent forward in shame. "Just get to class before you are tardy."

"Okay!" Star said gleefully as she hugged her bf and skipped away singing, having almost forgotten her dilemma.


Echo Creek Academy: History 101: Present Day


Stars class stared towards the slides on the screen as the teacher droned about the significance of each picture, as he continued to speak about the rise of the Germans in World War Two, Star watched the slides with a bored glaze as she started to drift into sleep.

"…by about 1939, the Nazi party was already began taking over Poland and spreading their reign into France, the Netherlands, and even Libya." The Teacher droned as he pressed a button and another slide appeared on the screen. "Here we have a picture of the German Chancellor, Adolf Hitler, during his occupation in Paris, France…"

As the teacher continued to bleat words and switch from slide to slide. Star felt her body shut down as she began to fall asleep. She began to nod off, trying to stay awake before she gave in and fell face first onto her desk.


Star shot her head up as she found herself alone in the classroom. As she looked around, she saw that there was not a single soul in the class room.

"I must have slept through the entire class." Star said to herself as she looked to the blackboard. "But then why didn't anyone wake me up?"

As Star tried to stand up, she found herself unable to sit up. Star then looked to her table and saw a sight that disturbed her. She found her body was attached to her school desk, as it she and he desk were made of wax and they melted together. Star began to panic as she tried to pull herself free, but it was no use.

"Marco!" Star yelled as she tried to pull herself free. "Marco! Help!"

There was no response, not a sound other than the young girl's breathing. Star then saw her wand on the floor beside her. But she could not reach it because her arms were fused to her desk. As she began to hyperventilate and panic, she then saw the blackboard before her starting to ripple like a lake that had a stone thrown within.

"It's just a dream…" Star muttered as she closed her eyes. "I just have to wake up."

Star then opened her eyes to see the ripple in the blackboard start to become stronger as a familiar bluish green gauntlet emerged from the blackboard, followed by the same figure that Star saw in her last dream. As he began to approach her. Star could begin to hear screams from the door in the room, which led to the hallways of the school. Star could then see the glass on the door turn orange as it shattered, the opening was quickly filled with fire as the screams became louder. As Star tried to pull herself free, she then heard the sound of Marco screaming.

"MARCO!" Star screamed as she pulled harder, but she would not budge. "NO! NOOOO!"

Star then turned to the man before her, who was looking towards the burning door with a blank expression.

"This is no dream Star." The man explained as he raised his gauntlet towards Star. "You will fail to save them…to save Marco."

As he clenched his hand, Star felt her body detach from the desk and fall onto the floor. As soon as she touched the floor, Star grabbed her wand and rushed towards the fire, only to be stopped by a gauntlet grabbing her shoulder. Star shoved the man away as she rushed towards the fire, only to see the door begin to get farther and farther as she ran. Eventually Star stopped and fell to her knees. Looking back to the armored man, who had his arms crossed and a look of curiosity on his face.

"Why are you doing this?" Star choked as she turned to him and stood up, aiming her wand at him. "Why are you doing this to me? What did I do to you?"

The man's face softened as he approached Star, his body began to shrink until he was about her size. Star stood back in confusion as the boy looked with a look of disappointment.

"Nothing…" the boy replied as he looked at his hands. "You were only a little girl then."

Star looked in confusion before she began to charge her wand. The Boy looked up and smiled.

"But I was your hero." The boy stated with a smile. "The bright light within a dark world."

Star stopped in her tracks, lowering her wand as she saw the backboard behind the boy begin to create four flaming letters. With each letter written, the boy before her began to disappear.

"Wait…" Star shouted as she reached out towards the boy, only for him to disappear, leaving behind the four flaming letters. As she saw those letters of fire, the spark she was looking for was lit, and the name she was looking for was right before her.

…and then Star woke up to a full classroom and a ringing bell.


Echo Creek Academy: Cafeteria: Present Day


It was lunchtime at the Echo creek academy as Marco was sitting with his two friends, Ferguson and Alfonzo, who were discussing the famous book series "Nobody's Perfect" By the mysterious writer Crumbs the Clown.

"I'm just saying is that the first book, while the grammar is atrocious, is the best of the series, and should have stayed a single story as the author intended." Alfonzo stated as he held his finger in the air. "The very fact that Crumbs made two sequels, a prequel, and several spin-offs if a clear sigh of selling out."

"I have no quarrel with the expansion, it's the characters I have a bit of trouble with." Ferguson rebutted as he bit into his sandwich. "I mean, in some chapters of book three "The Ones That Arrived Beforehand, it seems that Crumbs focus the attention on Mister Desmond's relationship with Peacock more than his actions in causing the German civil war. Plus, his death by his sister Rosa seems premature and could be fleshed out for a chapter or two."

"What about you Marco?" Alfonzo asked his friend as he bit into an apple. "What do you think?"

"Honestly?" Marco replied with a raised eyebrow while digging through his lunch bag. "I think it's a miracle that Crumbs manager to get this whole series in the air in the first place. I mean, he delayed several of his other books to work on his "crown jewel" of a series. While people like me who are expecting him to finish "Red and Black", or "Trends of a Were-horse" are just left to die in the sun, and don't get me started on his deadlines. I guess he uses the deadline requests to wipe his-"

Before Marco could finish his rant about some stupid writer with poor writing skills and social compassion, he felt a large sack go over his body, which was pulled into the air and flung onto the floor. It didn't take the boy a second to know who was behind this.

"Star!" Marco shouted as he felt his body being dragged onto the floor.

"Sorry guys!" Star greeted Marco's friends as she flung the sack on her back like a bag of potatoes. "Can't stay and chat, magical emergency."

"Gotha." Ferguson replied with a cool gun finger point and a wink. "See you tomorrow Marco!"

The two nerds watched Star sing a jolly tune as she carried the ranting Marco away. Once the girl was gone, the boys continued their discussion.

"…and then there's his "think tank", which he neglects like a stray dog." Alfonzo ranted as he bit into his apple again. "I feel sorry for that bunch, they deserve better"


Diaz Residence: Star's Room: Thirty Minutes Later


Marco pulled himself from the sack he was in and stretched his arms and legs to see the face of his friend and housemate, Star Butterfly, right in his face. As he was about to speak, Star placed her hand on his mouth and whispered to him.

"Nova." Star whispered as stars were in her eyes.

"What?" Marco replied in confusion as he pulled Star's hand from his mouth.

"It's Nova." Star replied as she tried to cover Marco's mouth again, only to be blocked by the boy's karate moves.

"Star, what are you talking about?" Marco asked as he deflected the hands approaching him.

"It's the name." Star replied as she continued to attack the boy before her with her slow moving hand attacks, all with a starry eyed grin.

"What's then name?"



"It's *the* name."


"Of the guy!"

"From your nightmare?"


"Okay…and what does this mean?"

Star stopped attacking Marco and scratched her head in confusion as she then snapped her fingers with an idea in her head. Star then dashed under her bed and pulled out the Magic Instruction Book. As she opened the book and began to flip through the pages, she came across a small blue fat man standing before a small blue ball of light with fairy wings.

"I have told you what I have told you the last thirty times, you don't have to yell out "Hey" and "Listen!" to grab my attention" Glossaryck sighed as he rubbed his face with irritation. "You have that mute kid to bug, go do that to him."

As Glossaryck looked up to see Star and Marco above him, he slapped the little fairy aside and turned his attention to the two teens before him.

"Sorry about that, I had to rent my book to some other fairies." Glossaryck explained as he rubbed his bald head. "That one there is such a chatterbox, but at least he's not like that freak in the green tights, ugh…so what's up?"

"Glossaryck, you have knowledge of all of Mewni's history, right?" Star asked as she began to chew on her wand.

"Of course, I have a full record of the entire history of Mewni." Glossaryck replied with a grin as he proofed up a lounging chair and sat in it, proofing up some tea for himself while he was at it. "So what do you want to know about? The founding of Mewni, The Great Monster Massacre, or how about some of your endeavors with Ludo or Toffee?"

"Oh no! Not any of those." Star explained as she looked to Marco, who shrugged in confusion. "But um…do you know of anyone by the name of …Nova?"

At the mention of the name, Glossaryck, spit out the very tea he was drinking, as he coughed and gasped for air, Star looked to Marco with a look of confirmation and concern.

"Sorry…" Glossaryck gasped as he spat out the last of his tea. "I couldn't hear you over my choking. It sounded like you wanted to know about Moba, the space vampire and union representative."

"No, she said Nova." Marco resurrected as he glared at the little blue man. "Star has been having dreams about this guy and they are scarring her."

"I wouldn't say scarred." Star interjected with a blush. "But I was a bit unnerved by the fire…and the bodies…and the screaming."

"Well shoot, I don't know anything about this "Cova" guy, but I'm sure it's nothing." Glossaryck replied in a quick and sudden manner as he reached for the side of his book. "Now I think I'm gonna take a nap. Wake me up when you have something *real* to discuss."

As he slammed the book shut, Star and Marco looked to each other with an unimpressed gaze as Marco stood up and left the room. Star then smiled as she tried to open the book, only to feel Glossaryck hold it shut.

"We're sorry, but the M.I.B is unable to be accessed at this time." Glossaryck said in a poor impression of an automated voice. "Please try again later."

"Oh well." Star shrugged as she heard Marco come back up with two small brown cups in his hands as well as two metal spoons. "I guess Marco and I will have to eat all this *pudding* all by ourselves."

At the mention of the word "pudding", the Book opened slightly as Glossaryck's head peeked out of the book to see the two teens holding a small cup of chocolate pudding in their hands. At the mere sight of the container, the small blue genie began to sweat as he heard the covers on the containers pop off.

"Don't give in Glossaryck" Glossaryck muttered to himself as he felt his body trembled as Star scooped out a large spoonful of chocolate pudding, the blue man could smell it all the way from his book. "You have been sober for almost a year now, don't give in to them."

Glossaryck felt his teeth chatter and his lips moisten as he watched Marco take a bite of the pudding and moan in pleasure at the rich flavor. As Star took a bite and smiled in joy at the pudding's flavor, she "accidently" dropped a small blob on the book, right next to the vibrating Glossaryck, who stared at the thick blob of chocolate gelatin before Star swiped it off the book and gobbled it up.

That was the last straw, for at that moment, Glossaryck shot the book wide open and dashed towards Star's pudding cup, only to be pinned down by Marco's spoon.

"Please! Just a taste! I'll do anything!" Glossaryck begged "…I'll make you feel good."

"Talk." Marco commanded as he took Star's spoonful of pudding and held it before the blue addict. "Tell us about Nova."

"Look, all I know is that he's being kept in a place known as "The Boneheart" It's a place forbidden to anyone but the rulers of Mewni." Glossaryck explained as he tried to reach the pudding with this tongue. "I don't know why, but if he's there, then it's for a good reason. Now please…give me Pudding! Please!"

Marco released Glossaryck as he shot into the pudding cup, devouring the chocolate gelatin like a starving pig. As Marco looked with disgust, he then looked to Star, who was looking at her wand with concern.

"Star…" Marco said as he approached his friend "…are you okay?"

"Marco…I have to release him." Star stated as she turned to Marco. "I think all of these dreams are a cryptic warning."

"Now hold on their Star. This "Boneheart" sounds a lot like a prison." Marco explained as he approached Star and placed his hands on her shoulders. "I don't think it's wise to release a guy from a prison that you only know through your dreams."

"Marco, for once stop being "The Safe Kid" and trust me." Star said in an irritated tone, startling the teen boy. "I know him from somewhere and he knows me, and I think he is the key to stopping a huge threat that's coming."

"Star, what if he's "The Big Threat"?" Marco rebutted. "What if all of that was caused by him?"

"Well, there's only one way to find out!" Star said with a triumphant voice as she pulled out her dimension scissors and carved a hole in the air, creating a portal and jumping in. "Boneyard ho!"

Marco rubbed his face with frustration before he dived in afterward. As the portal closed, Glossaryck sat up and rubbed his head, having consumed so much pudding that he suffered a brief sugar coma and passed out, only to awake to two empty pudding container, two metal spoons.

"Welp, that's ten months down the drain." Glossaryck grumbled as he pulled a coin from his pocket and tossed it away. "Thanks a lot Star, I hope losing my sobriety was wort-"

Glossaryck stopped dead in his tracks as he realized what he had done, in that instant, he quickly rushed over to Star's mirror and activated it.

"Oh crap! Oh crap! Oh crap! Oh crap! Oh crap!" Glossaryck muttered as he began to chew his fingernails. "Please pick up! Please! Pick! Up!"


Mewni: Butterfly Castle: Royal Chambers: Present Day


King Butterfly was reading the daily Mewgle, a new contribution to the citizens of Mewni for reading news and other insigificant information, as he sat by the fire. He then heard the footsteps of his wife, Queen Butterfly as she sat down in the chair beside him, holding a cup of tea and a small book known as "Nobody's Perfect: A Woman and her Tiger".

"I must say, whoever wrote these books has a twisted imagination." Queen Butterfly said with a disgusted tone as she closed the book and tossed it into the fire. "Almost the majority of the story was focused on either fornication or torture…or both."

"Well it *is* a human book, my dear." King Butterfly explained as he looked at his paper. "What did you expect?"

Just then, the two of them heard a ringing sound as they saw the mirror was active and making a call.

"I'll get it." Queen Butterfly said as she stood up and walked up to it, as it opened she was greeted by the sight of Glossaryck, smeared with chocolate and looking quite upset.

"Glossaryck?" Queen Butterfly said in confusion at the sight. "Did you break your pledge already?"

"I'm sorry your majesty, but it was Star and Marco's doing." Glossaryck explained as he wiped chocolate from his cheek and licked it. "They did this to me."

"What?" Queen Butterfly said in shock at the news. "Why would Star do such a thing?"

"My Star would not stoop so low." King Butterfly said as he threw his paper in the fire and moved beside his wife. "Not unless there was a good reason."

Glossaryck looked away in worry before he continued.

"So…It seemed that "special spell" has worn off, because she wanted to know…."

"Know about what?" King Butterfly asked with concern, sweat began to form on his brow, as well as his Queen's. "What did you tell her?"

Glossaryck sighed before he replied to them as he took another swipe of body pudding.

"I told her about Nova." Glossaryck replied quickly as he stuffed his hand into his mouth.

There was nothing but silence between the rulers of Mewni and the floating pudding junkie.

"You told her WHAT?" Queen Butterfly shouted as she grabbed the mirror, causing Glossaryck to flinch back and cover his face with his hands.

"I'm so ashamed!" Glossaryck wept as he simultaneously covered his face with his palms and licked them. "I am a terrible excuse for a guardian of knowledge!"

"Oh be silent!" Queen Butterfly snapped at the small man in the mirror. "Just tell me where is she now?"

"She went to The Boneheart with Marco." Glossaryck explained as he began licking his legs. The sight caused Queen Butterfly to shutter and deactivate the mirror.

"Even if she gets there before us, Star won't know how to release Nova." King Butterfly assured as he walked over to a mounted sword on the wall and removed it from said wall. "

"That does not matter!" Queen Butterfly interjected as she walked over to a cabinet and pulled out a large sword. "As long as she has the wand, she can release him."

"But how did she know about him in the first place?" King Butterfly asked as he walked over to a nearby servant, who began to fit him with armor. "The spell we used on Star should have been permanent."

"I don't know darling." Queen Butterfly said with a sigh as she began to fit herself with armor. "But if she releases him, then it was all for nothing."

"Maybe we shouldn't have done it in the first place." King Butterfly said as he picked up a pair of dimension shears and walked up to his wife. "I mean, she should know about him. After all..."

"…he is her brother."

Queen Butterfly looked to her husband as he handed her the dimension shears, as she looked at them, she sighed, remembering that day…

"We did the right thing." Queen Butterfly said as she looked to her husband. "That…thing is no longer our son, just a mindless monster."

As King Butterfly watched his wife open a portal with the shears in her hands, he sighed as he and his queen stepped within the portal, which closed behind them.

Chapter 2: Freedom
The Boneheart: Present Day
As expected, The Boneheart was a large dome made of bone, aside from that, there was nothing more than rocks floating around in a black sky. In fact, it seemed that the whole place was floating on a lone rock in the darkness. As a portal opened, star rolled out of the portal and stood up with a triumphant pose, with Marco walking out of the portal with caution before Star looked back to him and yanked him to her side.
"There it is Marco!" Star said with stars in her eyes as she pointed to the eerie gate of the Boneheart. "The source of my nightmares, and the answer to all out problems."
"Wait…how is this my problem?" Marco asked Star. "Aside from the fact that I should be finishing my homework right now."
"Just let me have this moment." Star replied quickly as she released Marco and approached the gate, studying the large femur on the front of the door.
After overgoing the results of the recent poll, I have concluded that the SFE fanfic "Nova", will be my vacation from EMM.
Starape by ScrapstheFoolWhich is good because I just finished the first chapter.

[Also, just to assure a few people, I am not abandoning EMM, I just want to take a vacation from writing SU fanfics for a while. You can't go your whole life eating only apples, you have to eat other fruit as well. But I will return after I finish Nova.] 
While EMM is in Hiatus, what fanfiction series should I work on in the meantime? (Will decide by midnight tonight)
4 deviants said Star vs the Forces of Evil: Nova
4 deviants said Fuck that! Finish EMM!
3 deviants said MLP: Pink and White
1 deviant said CWDWC: Lucky 17
1 deviant said Get a life you neckbeard!
No deviants said MLP: Tendancies of a Lyncanthope
So...after thinking about it for a while and with the advice of my brother, I am going to take a break from EMM and will be working on another Fanfic series until I get the ball rolling again.
Apologyquilt by ScrapstheFool
Don't worry, EMM will return, just...not right now.

As of now, I will work on another fanfiction in the meantime.
Sorry for the absence, College has been difficult, and I got a new job.

I will return soon.

Chapter 9: House of Traitors


Tribunal Temple: one month later.


Topaz sat on the edge of the temple's rooftop as they watched the sun rise over the valley before them. It had been eons since a Gemian set foot in the old temple of the Tribunal, the one the Gemians used as their main home before Topaz and Diamond began to industrialize them. As Topaz looked down towards the ground below them, they saw a glimpse of themselves and Diamond fighting, with the Old King hitting the Taskmaster in the face with a rock, the same rock that was used to make the rings on their fingers. As Topaz looked at their ring, they took it off and examined it.

"Kings of three that were we…but who is the one that will be…" Topaz said mockingly as they stood up and clenched the ring in their hand. "…one who will betray the others, one who will kill their kin without mercy or remorse?"

Topaz then summoned a projection of Diamond before them. Glaring into the projected hollow eyes.

"I will take that role, Diamond, the serpent." The Hologem replied. "I will raise my mace upon those who I once called my family. Without hesitation…without mercy…and especially without remorse."

Topaz screamed as they summoned their lance and charged at the hologem, the impact dissipated the image in an instant. However, Topaz continued to attack wildly at the air.

"Take this!" Topaz shouted as they continued to attack wildly. "How could you do this to us? To the Gems? To Rose?"

In that instant, the Taskmaster felt their mind flash back to that damned moment from several hours ago. They saw Diamond on top of Rose, drinking the vitae from her body while he…integrated with her. They then saw Diamond stand up and look to Topaz as he smiled.

"You will fail Topaz, just as you failed her, the Gems will follow the same fate." Diamond hissed with a smile. "I will not rest until every…last…Gem…is gone, and it's all thanks to you."

Topaz then roared as they charged at Diamond, only for the vision to quickly disappear before them. As Topaz heard the sound of thunder in the distance and saw a large thundercloud approaching, Topaz sighed as they walked over to a latch and opened it, entering the Temple from so long ago.


Tribunal Temple, main chambers, present day


Topaz walked down the dusty catacombs, where once they were filled with the sounds of Gems talking and training as they were guided by the Tribunal. As Topaz entered the main chamber, they approached a portrait of the Taskmaster in a bronze suit. As the taskmaster approached the painting, they looked at the inscription beneath it.

"Præceptor Topazius: Me oculo steneat scientiam."

Topaz looked up to the picture and summoned their lance. As they touched the tip of the lace to the eyes of the painting, the Taskmaster vanished into thin air.


Topaz reappeared into a private study. There were scrolls, crystals, bottles, and books of different size and shape everywhere. There was also a large desk with several stacks of parchment and a few quills. As Topaz walked through the study, they then noticed a strange book sitting upon a stand. As they approached it, they noticed that the book was recently placed here, as there were no signs of dust or damage. Topaz then picked up the book and looked at it. It was light brown in color and had several markings all over the color. As they read the words on the cover, the taskmaster turned pail as they read the black letters.

"Quod Vetere Regem…" Topaz whispered as they looked at the book with shock. "This is one of Diamond's Memoirs. How did this...get here?"

Topaz looked at the book and sighed before they walked over to their desk and sat down before it, placing the book upon the table, placing the book before them and opening to the first chapter, "Experimentis cum Curriculum Vitae". As Topaz turned the page, they saw that several pages were torn and several more were missing, from what Topaz could recover, it was all small amounts of data, all of which were set after the defeat of Tiberium and before the attacks by Onyx.

Insidiae Log Number 4,536:

"We lost Rhyolite today, the Spuria Vitulamina escaped along with that thief I was modifying. The Agates are not ready yet and there are still details I need to extract from him. Nevertheless, I will find him, and take back what is mine."

Insidiae Log Number 6,445:

"Peridot's knowledge has once again been proven invaluable. With her help, I was finally able to crack the Metalians formula for converting vitae into humor and vice-versa. With this data, there are a new range of weapons and Gem potential. But for now, perhaps I will take her someplace nice and…"

Insidiae Log Number 8,547:

"It's getting stronger now. I can feel it telling me to do things, terrible things. But the things I have seen…all of this will stop them. I can create a perfect Universe, the Universe that Gemia would want."

Topaz continued to skim through the pages as they sighed in irritation. But as Topaz was about to close the book and throw it out the window, a page caught their attention and they read the page.

"Ipsum Obsianas Virus Quod"

"The Obsidian Virus?" Topaz said to themselves as they turned the page, but as they did, the pages following were black.

"What is this?" Topaz said in disbelief as they skimmed through the blank pages, stopping at a page with writing on it. As they read the pages, they discovered that the pages were a letter…for Topaz."

Topaz could feel their hands shake slightly as they began to read the journal.


To my Gem Sibling Topaz,

If you are reading this then I have already won our war. Please understand that what I am doing is for the greater good of the Universe. However, for now, an explanation for my actions is justified.

For as long as we have been living, we were always a tribunal, instructed by our mother to protect the Universe and keep the balance in line. Over time however, you and Rose began to develop your own ideals for protecting the Universe. You wanted to involve the Gems with issues relating to the Gems while Rose wanted to help the entirety of the Universe. I however, saw the truth that you both could not. After the defeat of Tiberium, I realized that the true enemy of this universe…was free will. Free will, if not controlled, will lead to chaos that will create wars that will destroy entire planets and breed hate and obsession into the minds of the lesser. I realized that the same ideals were affecting the Gems as well and there was one clear solution: you and the rest of the Gems were to be extinguished in order to save the Universe from itself.

After many years of planning, I realized that in order to establish full control of the Universe, I would need to obtain the essence of the Crystal Mother. To do this, I would have to absorb the very Vitae from you and Rose since we were created from her very Vitae. I only wish I did not have to result to...savagery. In hindsight, raping her was have been an unexpected action from me. Nevertheless, I have already begun my plan as we speak.

During my time on my Gem colony of Insidiae, I found that I was able to use the three essences, Vitae, Ichor, and Humor, for two purposes: The first purpose was to create a new army. As you may have figured out by now, I created my Secundo from fraction of my essence. By modifying her with Ichor, I have created what I assumed to be an efficient servant and a new weapon for the Diamond Authority. However, her wild behavior and rejection to the Ichor was a setback. After the war with Tiberium, I used Gem Vitae and the remaining Humor from the Metalians to create a new breed of solder I coined "Agates." Using these machines to replace the flawed Gems within the Universe, I shall be able to assure my control over the entirety of the Universe.

The second purpose of the use of these essences was to continue create efficient servants. In order to accomplish certain tasks, I would need a servant who would follow my orders and, unlike an Agate, could follow them with an organic touch. Seeing as Onyx had started to fail me, I decided to use her to conceive a new Secundo. With the use of my new servant and the Agate drones, I shall soon have enough power to restore the Universe to pure order. Soon the corruption of the Universe will be extinguished and in its place, unending peace and order. So says Master Diamond, once the leader of the Crystal Tribunal, now the leader of the Diamond Authority, and then, the Universe.

I hope that by the time you read this, you will have decided to accept your fate and will surrender. If not, then be prepared to embrace the fury of true order.


Master Diamond


Topaz gently closed the book as they placed their hands over their head and began to weep. Between the imprisonment of Emerald, the treachery of Diamond, and Rose, the Taskmaster was at their limit. As they stood up and teleported out of the chamber, they were greeted by a familiar sight, there was a Gem standing before them, she was wearing a large white dress. As she looked to Topaz and smiled, the Taskmaster recognized her as Rose Quartz, their sister and, as of several hours ago, was nearly killed by Diamond.

"Rose!" Topaz shouted as they hugged their sister. "You're recovered already?"

"You forget Topaz that I have healing tears, remember?" Rose explained with a smile. "Besides, this wasn't the first time Diamond nearly killed me."

Topaz was relieved at Rose's recovery, but her attitude was disturbing to them. Topaz saw the scarring around the base of her right arm, which was once torn off by the Old King before he beat and raped her. But now here she was, gathering weapons and putting them into the mane of Lion as he teleported through a portal.

"Rose…" Topaz said hesitantly as they approached her. "Can we talk about what happened on Homeworld?"

Rose stopped as she held the Gem sword in her hands. Looking at it, she gave a faint smile as she unsheathed the blade.

"I'm not going to kill him." Rose said as she turned to Topaz with a stern expression. "He doesn't deserve that."

Topaz looked in shock at what Rose had just said. Topaz felt the anger build within them as they approached their sister.

"Rose…Diamond betrayed us!" Topaz explained with an angry tone. "He turned the entirety of the Gems against us. He has us seen as corrupt!"

"I know…" Rose replied as she looked at her arm. "But when I talked to him on Homeworld, before he…attacked me…I could feel something…"

Topaz gave a skeptical glare as Rose continued.

"…it felt as if Diamond was trying to escape some form of cage, but it wasn't a cage." Rose continued. "Something is making Diamond this way, it's forcing him to turn on us."

"Rose…this is painful for me as well." Topaz said to their sister as they approached her and placed a hand on her shoulders. "But you can't deny the truth. Diamond has gone mad and turned on us. That…thing is not our brother anymore."

"I can still feel him inside there." Rose argued as she picked up another weapon and placed it into Lion's mane. "I don't care what you say, we are going to find out what happened to him and we are going to fix him."

Rose then watched as Topaz shook their head in disbelief as they rubbed their brow with their hands.

"Rose…" Topaz sighed as they rubbed their face. "There is nothing we can fix. You can try, but it will be a suicide mission."

Rose then approached Topaz with a smile and extended her hand. "So how about you join me then? Rose asked with a grin. "We are the "Kings of Three, aren't we."

Topaz looked to Rose's hand and then back to her. As they sighed and shook their head, they took Rose's hand and placed something in it as they close it up. Letting go of her hand, Topaz turned around and began to walk away. Rose looked at her sibling in confusion before her looked at her hand and opened it, gasping slightly as she saw Topaz's ring in her hand.


"We were never true kings of anything…" Topaz muttered as they continued to walk out of the temple and into the rainstorm. As thunder roared from above, Topaz looked back to the temple and felt the rain fall down their face, masking the tears that fell as well "…only fools following the call of madness."

Topaz snapped their fingers as Nilrem appeared beside them. As Topaz sat onto this familiar's back, they looked back and sighed.

"Forgive me Rose, but I can't do this anymore." Topaz said as Nilrem summoned a portal and began to walk through the portal. "Goodbye…and good luck."

With that, Topaz was gone, the Taskmaster of the Gemians was now far away from the planet and possibly, the Universe.


As Rose sat at a table and looked at the ring in her hand, she saw the portal open as a tall Gem with two Gems on her hands approached her and bow lightly.

"Master Quartz." The Gem addressed to her superior. "Everything is ready."

"Garnet, there is no need for the formalities." Rose replied with a chuckle. "Especially since the Authority has been erasing all known knowledge of the Gemians, you might as well see me as a fellow Gem."

"Of course Mas…I mean…Rose Quartz…" Garnet acknowledged as she turned to the portal. "Everything is ready, we will begin the attack on your command."

Rose looked to her hand as she placed the ring of Topaz in her pocket as she summoned her sword and shield as she entered the portal.


Homeworld, present day


As she exited the portal, she was greeted by a large group of armored Gems, along with the tall Gem fusion Garnet and a little pointy nosed Gem named Pearl.

"Welcome Rose Quartz." A Gem greeted Rose as she approached the Gems. "Everything is as you planned, the Authority won't stand a chance ageists this ambush. Then it's straight shooting towards the Colony shipyard."

"Alright everyone, I can't lie to you and say that you will all survive whatever the Authority has in store for us, but at least we can fight to the last Gem." Rose said to her Gems as she created a projection of a planet in her hand. "Because today, we fight for a planet that is targeted for the next Kindergarten harvest. It's a unique planet known as Terra. We will beat the Authority there and defend the planet until their end…or ours."

Rose the raised her sword as she aimed it towards the Gems.

"Today my Gems, we are proud to be protectors…to be servants of the Universe…."

As she looked behind her, she saw a pink flag with her shield on the front, Rose smiled as she turned back and shot her fist into the air.


Rose felt the energy around her as the Gems before her cheered and applauded before they took arms and charged into the city.

As Rose entered the streets of the Homeworld, she looked up towards the main temple of the Diamond authority, remembering it as the Tribunal hub, where the Gemians once resided.


Temple of the Diamonds, present day


Three Diamonds walked into the temple and approached a figure meditating in the center. The Gemian then stood up and turned to the three Diamonds as they bowed to him.

"It is done." Blue Diamond said as she looked to the ground. "All data about the Gemians and their interactions with the Universe is gone. We have replaced the Gem's archives with falsified data."

Suddenly, there was a large rumbling as the whole temple shook.

"…and the attacks?" Master Diamond asked as he approached his servants.

"They are rebels Master." Yellow Diamond said as she looked up to her Master. "I have assembled an elite to handle them. If they reach the Terra planet, then they will have find a terrible surprise awaiting them."

"Good." Diamond said as he began to walk past them. "As of now, you will take command of Homeworld until I return, and if I don't…"

"…you know what to do." Diamond continued as he looked to the Diamonds with a raised eyebrow.

The Diamonds saluted as they watched Diamond leave the temple. As he heard another explosion and saw a colony ship fly into the stars. He smiled at the sight before him.

"You can reach Terra before me." Diamond said as he walked towards the Authority ships ready for launch. "But you will not save it."


Gem Colony Insidiae, prison sector, two thousands and fifteen years and seven months later


"So even then you truly believed you were doing the right thing?" Connie asked as she sharpened a bone with a small rock. "You never thought that all the death and all the torture and rape weren't a flashing light that what you were doing was wrong?"

"I knew what I was dong was wrong, but the Obsidian…it used my desires against me." Diamond explained as he meditated before the young Gem. "When you are possessed by the Obsidian, it takes your desires, your ambitions, your wants and needs, and warps them to fanatical proportions. What was difficult for me was that my purpose was to ensure the balance of the Universe, which was difficult because my siblings had no idea how to. In addition, the Metalian war forced my hand"

"Uh-huh…" Connie replied as she continued to sharpen the bone. "but what about Pearl and your…"children". Was Obsidian controlling them?"

"No, they were being influenced by the essence of Obsidian. However, the effects vary and the carrier of the essence can actually reject said essence." Diamond continued as he pointed to his eyes. "You may have noticed that Vesti…*ahem*…Pearl at some point was shedding tears of a black acidic liquid.

"Yeah"…Connie said as she examined the bone and blew off the shavings before she approached the Old King and handed it to him. "...I remember seeing that when Pearl…cut me open."

"Then she was fighting the control of the Ichor." Diamond explained as he examined the bone. "To combat this, inflicting pain was necessary to stimulate Vitae production, which feeds the Ichor."

Connie scoffed as she turned around and lifted her long hair to Diamond, who then held it up as placed the sharpened bone to towards it.

"So I guess here comes the part where Rose defeats you and then you sic Pearl on her?" Connie asked as she felt her hair being cut off."

"Correct…somewhat." Diamond replied as he cut the sharp bone through his inmate's hair. "But it was also the moment when she killed me."

Connie looked to Diamond with a surprised expression before she straighten back up, allowing Diamond to continue.

"I though you said that Gemians can't kill other Gemians?" Connie asked the Old King.

"We can't…" Diamond said as he raised the bone above Connie's head. "…but that didn't stop Rose from finding a way. Now hold still…"


Terra planet, Beachside, two thousands and fifteen years and seven months ago


Rose walked through the sandy beaches of the ocean as she looked at the orange sky above her. The fighting was been rough for her rebellion and already, several thousand Gems were lost to the Authority. As Rose sighed, she turned to see Pearl running towards her with a small black crystal in her hand.

"Rose Quartz!" Pearl shouted as she handed the crystal to her leader. "This fell from the sky and to tell me to tell you to go to the large hill at the following coordinates."

Rose watched as Pearl handed her a parchment with the location written on them. As she took the crystal, she felt a familiar disturbance, a feeling she had not felt since…

"Thank you Pearl, you have been so helpful" Rose commented as she patted Pearl on the head. "Take the others to the Kindergartens and deal with them, and try not to be the big hero this time, okay?"

"Understood…" Pearl said before she noticed that Rose was running in the opposite direction. "Rose Quartz! Where are you going?"

"I have to deal with another kindergarten." Rose replied with a smile. "I'll be fine, go deal with the other one."

Pearl nodded as she began to catch up with the others, as she stopped for a minute, she looked around and then she closed her eyes.

"It's done." Pearl said as she walked towards the other Gems "She is on your way as we speak."

"Good." The cold voice of Diamond replied through the young Gem's mind. "Keep the other's busy and activate the canyon Kindergarten. This will be quick."

Pearl nodded as she arrived among the other Gems. A small smile stretch across her face.


Terra planet, hillside, present day


As Rose arrived at the hill, she began to see flowers blowing along the warm breeze. As she stopped and grabbed one, she saw that they had Gems in the center. Rose looked around in confusion as she saw the large tree on top of a large hill. As she ran up towards it, she then noticed several wilted and dead flowers on the ground.

"It seems you are the exemplar of life. As I am death." Diamond said as he approached Rose, a smile on his face. "You are a beautiful lie, and I am the horrible truth."

"Diamond, that is not true." Rose said as she put away her a weapons. "You are not a monster."

"Not a monster?' Diamond asked as he approached his sister. "I am the savior of the Universe, I am doing what mother wanted me to do."

"To kill millions?" Rose asked. "Does that truly justify everything?"

Diamond paced a few times before he turned and summoned his mace.

"I have seen the horrible truth about the Universe, and I will purify it!" Diamond said as he charged towards Rose. "Starting with you, my little sister!"

Rose quickly summoned her shield and held it up to Diamond's mace. As the weapons collided, the impact knocked Rose back and knocked her shield off her arm. As she staggered up and ran towards it, she felt the large head of a mace smash into her chest. Rose staggered as she saw Diamond standing before her.

"This is pointless Rose, you can't defeat me." Diamond explained as he knelt towards her. "You have to kill me, and we both know that is impossible."

"I didn't come here to kill you Diamond." Rose corrected as she summoned she shield and leapt back. "I came here to save you."

"Save me...?" Diamond said softly, he did not expect such a response. "Save me from what?"

"Diamond, this is not you." Rose explained as she lowered her weapons once more. "I know you are damaged and I promised you that I would protect you, no matter what."

Diamond's eyes widened as he was taken aback by the response. In that instant, a memory flashed in his mind.


"Rose, I'm going to tell you something I never told anyone, not even Topaz." Diamond said to Rose. "I'm supposed to embody the strength and power of Gemia and be the exemplar of fear…"

Diamond stopped and paused, his mouth was agape and his eyes widened before he looked to Rose. She then saw tears forming in his eyes.

"…but not one day has gone by that I haven't been terrified by the thought that I won't be strong enough to protect this Universe, or those within it. I just…I'm scared that what we are doing is not enough, or it isn't want Gemia wanted…I…just want to see her again, to know what my purpose is!"

"Diamond…" Rose said as she saw Diamond's hands clench up, she could feel the fear flowing through her brother. He was the strongest and the most feared of the three Gemians, but not once since her birth did she ever see Diamond like this."

"I….fear that I'll fail you, and Topaz, and Ruby and Sapphire, and everyone else. I fear that I'll screw up and…I'll ruin everything…I'll make a mistake so huge, that I won't be able to fix it. I fear that…I'll do something so terrible that…."

Diamond gritted his teeth and growled as he smashed the ground with his fist. He then covered his face with his hands and began to weep.

"I'm so scared Rose…so scared…."

"Oh Diamond…" Rose exclaimed as she sat up and cradled the Old King in her arms. "You could never do anything to make me hate you."

Diamond looked to Rose with eyes flowing with tears. She smiled as she wiped tears from his eyes and kissed his forehead.

"Listen to me Dimey: I will always forgive you, no matter what." Rose explained as she looked into the Old King's eyes. "I promise you here and now, you will never be alone, for I'll be here for you. You are my brother, and I'll protect you from anything, just as you have for me."


Diamond took several steps back as he shook his head in shock and anger.

"No…that's a lie!" Diamond shouted as he raised his mace and charged towards Rose, clashing blade and mace. "I killed all your friends. I destroyed your home, twice. You…you can't…"

As Rose parried the mace, Diamond jumped out of the way and summoned his mace within. As he stood up, Rose noticed the Old King look to her with a tearful scowl.

"Even when I… raped you, and fed off your Vitae, even after that…" Diamond choked. "…you still love me?"

"Of course." Rose said with a smile. "You are my brother, and you always will be, and I can save you."

Diamond hesitated as he turned away from Rose, looking up at the tree at the top of the hill.

"You don't have to continue down this path Diamond. I can help you." Rose explained as she slowly approached her brother. "I know that something happened to you to change you into this. But you don't have to become a monster. You can still change,"

Diamond looked to Rose for a moment, looking away towards a column of smoke that was appearing in the distance.

"I…I can't Rose, I just…I just can't…." Diamond said as a black tear fell down his face. "It's too late to save me."

Diamond then turned to Rose and summoned his mace.

"However, if I am to become a monster…." Diamond hissed as with his free hand he summoned a black sickle. "…then I shall become the King of Monsters."

"Diamond, you still have a choice." Rose pleaded as she summoned her shield and sword. "What happened to you is not your fault, you made a mistake. Everyone makes mistakes."

"I do not make mistakes Rose…" Diamond replied as he lunged at Rose with mace and sickle in hand. "…I erase them!"


Garnet approached the hillside to see the Old King and Lion attacking each other.

"No!" the three eyed Gem whispered as she approached the fight. Summoning her gauntlets as she readied herself to for one of the toughest fights of her life.


Terra planet, Beachside


There was peace on this section of the planet, the calm soft waves gently washed up onto the white sandy shores. However, this peace was short lived as a pink haired Gem crashed into the beach like an asteroid. As she staggered up, she walked out of the crater of glass and rearmed herself. Only to be tackled from the left and then smashed into the ground. As Diamond shoved her into the ground, he stood up and recalled his fist back to punch the Pink Gem, only for her to slide under Diamond and avoid his punch as she grabbed him from the back and pulled him back, slamming his head into the ground behind her. Rose then stood up and brushed herself off, only for Diamond to grab her and shove her into the side of a cliff.

"It's over Rose! I have won!" Diamond cheered as he raised his fist to her. "I have forgotten how great it was to fight a true opponent. Thank you."

Rose tried to push him away, but Diamond quickly kicked Rose's sword from the ground and impaled her in the shoulder. Rose yelped in pain as Diamond grabbed her face and exposed her neck.

"However, you know that I need to do this." Diamond said softly as his jaw began to split open. "For…"

As Rose closed her eyes and took a deep breath, she opened her eyes to face her brother, only to see he has a large gauntlet in his face before he was knocked into an adjacent rock pile.

"Garnet!" Rose chimed as she tried to pull her sword out of her body, only the weapon was stuck in the rock. "Help me! I'm stuck!"

"Rose! I'm coming!" Garnet said as she turned towards Rose, only to have Diamond appear right before the Gem fusion.


Upon uttering that command, Diamond watched Garnet split into the two Gems Ruby and Sapphire. Diamond then jumped between them and kicked Sapphire away. He then turned to Ruby who walked away from him before she fell on her back and was looking at him with sheer terror in his eyes.

Upon seeing this, Diamond suddenly had another vision in his head. Seeing the young Gem rescued by Diamond himself. Diamond then snapped back to reality as he saw Ruby, and grabbed her by the neck.

"Let me go!" Ruby shouted as she tried to burn herself out of his grasp. "I said let me go!"

"RUBY!" Sapphire shouted as she got up and saw Diamond with her mate. Rose saw this as well and she looked to the sword in her shoulder.

Rose grabbed the sword and pulled as hard as she could.

Diamond split his jaw open to reveal his tube-like tongue.

Rose pulled harder and harder, feeling the blade begin to become loose and slowly pull out.

Diamond brought Ruby closer as he used his other hand to hold her neck still. The little Gem summoned her gauntlet and punched and kicked, but it was pointless.

Sapphire quickly rushed forwards and summoned her own gauntlet, but as she approached him, the Old King turned to her and glared at the Gem, causing her to falter and faint onto the ground.

Rose grunted in pain as she continued to yank the blade out. With a mighty thrust and a roar, she pulled the sword out and jungled at Diamond.

The Old King looked up and saw his sister above him, her blade in hand and already about to bring the sword down on him. Diamond then quickly summoned his black sickle and used it to block the sword, creating a pulse of energy as the two clashed blades. Ruby grabbed Sapphire and pulled her behind a rock as she witness the battle between brother and sister.

Diamond pressed forward, pushing both blades towards Rose. However, as Rose felt her back against a boulder, she quickly turned the blade, and locked the sickle in place upon the broad side of the sword. This allowed her to push forwards and regain her footing.

"This is pointless Rose!" Diamond hissed as he pressed forward against Rose. "I am the true savior of the Universe. I cannot die! I will not die!"

At that moment, there was a crack as the two Gems swathe sickle's blade crack and then, there was an explosion of dark light. As Rose felt her body fall to the ground, she looked around, her head was rattled from the explosion as she looked up to see a blurry Diamond standing before her. His robe had two tears in the suit, apparently resulting from two broken pieces of black sickle that were sticking in the ground behind Diamond. Rose then looked and saw her sword behind her and fully intact. As she was about to run towards the blade, Diamond kicked her to the ground and summoned his mace.

"Do you see Rose, I am destined to purify this Universe!" Diamond said as he brought the mace into the air to bring it down on Rose. "You will not forsake m-"

Diamond stopped moving as his mace disappeared in a cloud of smoke. Diamond then looked at his arm, watching as his whole arm fell of his body. Diamond and Rose watched the arm fall to the ground, the crystal Diamond in the shoulder went dim.

Diamond then looked to Rose with a mixed expression of shock and fear. While Rose covered her mouth with her hands in shock as the wounded Diamond just stood there before her.

"Rose…?" Diamond muttered as he spat blue blood from his mouth. "What have you done to me?"

Rose watched with tear filled eyes as shortly after Diamond spoke, a blue line appeared from the left side of his face and down the center of his left eye. In that instant, the portion of the left side of his head slid off and fell to the ground with a wet thud and a splash of blue blood. Diamond then fell onto his knees, wobbling for a few seconds before he fell onto the right side of his face. As his body was cold onto the floor, there was the sound of a strained sigh as black smoke began to pour from Diamond's mouth. After a few seconds, the smoke was gone and everything was silent once more.

Rose slowly sat up and approached Diamond's body, looking at the cut off arm and the sliced off portion of his head. She then crouched down and closed Diamond's remaining eye before she sat up and looked into the ocean before her. Rose then noticed a lone dead Gem flower floating in the ocean. As she picked it up, she saw it bloom in her hand. As she let go of the flower and watched it flow in the breeze, she closed her eyes took a deep breath as tears began to flow from her eyes. She then noticed a small group of Gems, along with Pearl and a small purple Gem who was clinging to her back. As Pearl approached Rose, she saw the body of Diamond and she was taken aback.

"It's done." Rose said as she continued to look at the ocean. "Return to Homeworld and speak of this to no one. Is that clear?

Pearl watched as the Garnet walked next to Pearl, nodded to her, and walked away. Pearl looked back to Rose, who was still staring at the ocean.

"Rose…" Pearl said as she approached the Pink Gem. "Are you alright?"

"Am I "all right"?" Rose said calmly, pausing for a moment before she stood up and faced Pearl, who saw tears flowing from the eyes of her leader as she kept a solemn expression. "No Pearl, I'm not alright…"

"…my brother has died…"

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.”

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 this one:

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).

Chapter 8: Sin of the Creator


Gem Colony Venatio, present day


Topaz marched through the walkways of the colony, their face concealing a growing rage over the news they had heard. It had been hours since they evacuated Gems to this colony, and provided their own Secundos, their creations, to battle alongside their brother. But now that time was over and for the Taskmaster, there was a new issue to deal with, because just recently, a certain Secundo had been found nearby Venatio, a certain Gem by the name of Emerald, who moments ago had escaped Insidiae and left his comrades behind, especially Howlite and Hematite. As Topaz continued to storm through the halls towards the holding cells, they were approached by a large six armed Gem with a turquoise Gem over her eye.

"How long has he been in custody?" Topaz asked the Gem.

"Since we found him Master." Turquoise replied with hesitation, she had never seen the Taskmaster so upset before. "But I don't understand why you had us put him in custody and not tell us why?"

As the Gems approached the door to the holding cells, Topaz looked to Turquoise and pointed their finger at her.

"Let me ask you something Gem." Topaz replied sternly. "How loyal are your Gems?"

"To the very Vitae in their being Master." Turquoise replied proudly. "They will serve you and the Tribunal to death."

"Has any of your Gems fled from battle and left there Gems behind?" Topaz asked with a angry tone as they closed in on Turquoise. "Have you?"

"No…no they haven't." Turquoise replied hesitantly. "I never met a Gem who has ever done so."

"When you do, then you can ask me that same question." Topaz replied with a scoff before they opened the holding cell. "Now stay outside and let me be alone with him."

Turquoise saluted as they watched the Taskmaster enter Emerald's cell. A cold feeling ran through her body at what the Taskmaster had in store for this Gem.


Gem Colony Venatio, Holding Cells, present day

Emerald sat against the wall of his cell as he used a small rock to carve a small etching in the wall beside him. It was a drawing of a warrior with a sword fighting flying creatures. As he stopped carving to look at the drawing, he looked at his hand that held the rock, he clenched the rock as he thought about his friends back at Insidiae…the Gems that he left behind…


Gem Colony Insidiae, Ventilation Shaft Controls, Several hours earlier


"Damn it!" Emerald said as he aimed his sword as the Agates before him. "There's no way out."

"That's where you are wrong Smaragdus." A voice whispered to Emerald. "There is always a way."

Emerald turned to see Diamond standing beside him. At first, the Gem was startled, but he smiled as he nodded his head to the Gemian, who nodded back to him. In a flash, Diamond swung his mace, blowing away several Agates and shattering several more. As Diamond raised his hand and clenched it, the Agates shook violently before they were crammed into a large ball shape. Diamond then lowered his arm and turned to Emerald.

"Boy am I glad to see you Master!" Emerald chuckled as he lightly bowed to the Gemian. "I thought we were done for."

"We?" Diamond asked as he looked around the area. "Where are the other Gems?"

Emerald looked around as he noticed that his Gems were gone. Not a single Gem remained but Diamond and himself. At the realization, Emerald fell to his knees.

"No…" Emerald whispered as he looked at his hands. "I killed them."

"What do you mean?" Diamond said as he approached the Secundo. "You lead them into this trap?"

"…No…" Emerald replied softly as he looked at his hand. "I didn't…mean to…I was following your orders…I think…"

"And you have…" Diamond said as he looked at the Ventilation switch. "By sacrificing your Gems to allow you to achieve your goal."

"No, that's not true!" Emerald objected as he stood up and turned to The Old King. "I was following your orders. You tasked me with this mission and I ensured it was accomplished."

"Yes…*you* made sure that *you* were the *one* to claim the glory." Diamond said as he reached down and picked up a broken Gem shard off the ground and showed it to Emerald. "If you truly cared for the mission, then why not send a solder to fulfill the task while you helped fend off the Agates?"

Emerald tried to find an answer, but his mind came to a blank. Just then Diamond's next words snapped the Gem to attention.

"Your ego cost the lives of your entire squad." Diamond explained coldly. "As well as the lives of Howlite and Hematite. I watched as Onychinos tore them apart. Your arrogance caused their deaths."

Emerald turned pale as he backed away from Diamond. He then turned away as he clenched his fists. The green Gem then shouted loudly as he punched the wall. Diamond could feel a warm heat emit from the Secundo, he then noticed small orange cracks appearing on his skin. As he realized what was happening, he quickly placed his hand on Emerald's shoulder, feeling the hot heat on his skin and feeling the energy flowing through the Secundo.

"Smaragdus, I know you did not anticipate this." Diamond said as he turned Emerald towards him. "But there is nothing you can do to fix this, I can't protect you from the others, and once Topaz finds out about this…then you will know a side of my sibling that only a few have ever seen."

Emerald looked to Diamond as he took a deep breath, winching as the cracks on his skin disappeared, he then looked to the Gemian with tears welling in his eyes.

"Then what do I do Master?" Emerald asked. "Where am I supposed to go?"

"Go to the Gem colony Venatio, they are a neutral colony." Diamond explained to Emerald as he placed his fingers in this forehead, implanting the location in his head. "Tell them what you did, tell it in truth, and they will take care of you. I can promise that."

Emerald nodded lightly as he backed away from Diamond and summoned his stone wings. He then looked to Diamond who nodded lightly.

"Thank you Master." Emerald said softly. "I'm happy to know that you still care, even after everything I've done."

"There is no need." Diamond replied. "Now hurry, I will deal with things here, and remember: tell them all about what you did, and remember: do not lie to them."

Emerald nodded as he shot into the sky, unaware of what awaited him at what he believed to be sanctuary.


Gem Colony Venatio, Holding Cells, present day


Emerald threw the rock in his hand at his cell, he watched it disintegrate as it hit against the force field that he was placed behind. However, his attention was then drawn to the Gemian with golden hair and a light yellow suit that stood before him. In that instant, he quickly rose from the ground and knelt before the Taskmaster.

"Creator Topaz." Emerald greeted his creator as he continued to kneel, his face was towards the floor. "I ask you for forgiveness for my actions. What I did was-"

"Be silent!" Topaz interjected coldly. "I have no need for the pleas of cowards, nor the formality of criminals."

Emerald stood up slowly as he looked into the eyes of Topaz, which gazed back towards him like a burning sun.

"C-creator, you have to believe me." Emerald pleaded towards his creator. "I never meant to leave my solders behind. I was…"

"…trying to claim the glory for yourself." Topaz interjected. "You left your solders to die so you could take all the credit."

"I don't care about that!" Emerald objected as he approached the energy shield, looking to Topaz with an intense glare. "I was trying to stop Onyx. That was the reason why I was sent there."

"Wrong!" Topaz shouted as they reached through the shield, breaking it in the progress, and grabbing Emerald by his armor and tossing him against the wall behind them. The Taskmaster watched as Emerald slowly stood up and looked to his creator, who stared back at him with a cold glare.

"Your mission was to protect Gems from Onyx." Topaz explained with a cold tone. "That was your *only* mission…that was the reason I created you. You failed to accomplish the task that you were *made* for!"

Emerald looked down at the ground as Topaz's words sunk into his heart like a knife. As he tried to look up to Topaz, he couldn't bring himself to do so.

"Between you and Lapis, I cannot…" Topaz sighed as they rubbed their brow, looking back up with an angry glare. "No Secundo of mine will be known as a coward or a traitor."

Emerald perked up as heard the name of his sister "Lapis", he then looked up and saw Topaz still glaring towards him with arms crossed.

"What did Lapis do?" Emerald asked with concern as he approached the Taskmaster. "What did you do to her?"

Topaz scoffed as they then uncrossed their arms and summoned a blue mirror in their hand. As Emerald watched Topaz use it to straighten their hair. The Green Gem noticed the cracked Gem on the back of the mirror. It was shaped like a teardrop and had a large crack on it. Emerald then turned pail as he realized who's Gem that was.

"You…you hurt her…" Emerald gasped as he back away lightly, he felt burning tears trickle down his face. "You used your own…secundo…"

"You keep forgetting that regardless of everything, Gems, including Secundos, all have a purpose to the Tribunal, Emerald." Topaz explained as they finished straightening their hair and dissipated the mirror. "If you cannot fulfill that mission, then they are useless, only to be seen as mere cannon fodder, Vitae supplies, or…just decoration."

In that instant, Emerald roared as he felt his body begin to burn again, only the heat was hotter than before. He screamed as he felt his skin crack and red plasma began to pulsate between the cracks. Topaz watched in shock at what they were seeing.

"Oh wouldn't?" Topaz gasped as they raised their fist and extended their ring and middle finger, muttering a quick command.

"Nilrem est mecum!"

Suddenly, a golden portal opened up next to Topaz and a golden stag with large antlers of silver and a single bronze horn on the center of his head suddenly appeared from the portal. He trotted over to Topaz and snorted at him.

"Nilrem! Zmaragdinae futurus sit Ergokinetic!" Topaz explained to his familiar."Velociter, qui eum interciperent antequam ipse consumit omnem coloniam!"

Nirem nodded as he moved before the boiling Emerald, who growled at the stag as he began to glow brighter, causing the crystal walls around him to begin to melt. Nilrem quickly snorted as he began to trot around Emerald slowly, as Emerald readied himself to attack, he noticed that Nilrem was starting to trot faster and faster, after several seconds of trotting, Nilrem began to gallop and continued to build speed around the Green Secundo. Soon, the familiar was a blur as he created a ring around the burning Emerald.

"What is this?" Emerald roared as the plasma in his body was now a bright orange. "Is this a new prison of yours?"

"No." Topaz replied as they extended their hand. "It's a demonstration on how to be a *real* protector."

"Nilrem, Aerem Decipula!"

In the instant Topaz shouted out the command, the ring instantly closed above Emerald, trapping him in a dome. In the instant the dome shut, Emerald felt his body weaken as the plasma in his body began to cool down and dim in color. Emerald staggered as he tried to summon his sword, but before he could, he found himself gasping as he fell on his back. As he felt the heat in his body stop, he saw the dome dissipate and felt fresh air brush upon his face. He then saw Topaz approach him and kneel down beside him, with Nilrem beside them.

"Do you have any idea what you were going to do?" Topaz asked Emerald as they heard footsteps from outside the holding cell doors.

"Emerald was too weak to speak as he watched Topaz reach down and rip a chunk of Topaz's skin off, the Secundo winced in pain and then saw as Topaz was holding a thin strip of what looked like brimstone.

"Each Secundo has a unique talent based on their upbringing and their Gem potential. Yours is an ability known as Ergokinetic combustion. This means you can superheat the very Vitae in your body to intense levels and eventually, you can become a supernova with the destructive power to destroy an entire colony."

As Emerald tried to speak, he heard the sound of doors slamming open as Turquoise and two Gems entered the room.

"Master Topaz, is everything alright?" Turquoise asked as she looked to the weak Emerald. "Did he try to escape?"

Topaz looked down to Emerald and sighed before he looked back to Turquoise.

"He attacked me and then he tried to destroy the colony." Topaz explained to Turquoise. "My brother was right when he told me about what he had done."

"N..No…he helped…" Emerald muttered as the two Gems along with Turquoise lifted the Secundo up and carried him to another cell, this one had special shackles attached to the wall. As the Gems strapped Emerald into the shackles, Topaz approached him and sighed.

"I am disappointed in you Emerald." Topaz said sternly as they looked towards their son. "You had much potential, and I saw of you as a proper elite. But even with future vison I can't see everything, and every now and then I find things that I didn't predict."

"Sa…sancu…ry" Emerald gasped as he tried to speak. "Li…d…t…to….e"

"What?" Topaz asked as they moved in closer to Emerald. "What did you say?"

"Dia…mond…lie…to…me." Emerald muttered weakly. "He…told…me …to …go…here…to…tell…them…"

"What are you talking about?" Topaz asked as they looked at Emerald with a confused expression. "What did Diamond tell you to say?"

"Tha…that…I…killed…them…" Emerald explained weakly. "I would…get…sanctuary…for…my confession."

Topaz pondered this for a moment before they turned towards Turquoise.

"When he arrived here, what did Emerald tell you?" Topaz asked the six armed Gem.

"He told us that he was responsible for the death of the Gems on Insidiae." Turquoise replied as she gestured to her Gems to lock up Emerald. "He then said that Master Diamond would handle things on Insidiae."

"Alright…I have what I came for." Topaz sighed as they began to walk away. "Do what you want with Emerald."

As Topaz ordered Nilrem to open a portal to Homeworld, they pondered this new data. While he knew that Emerald was responsible for the Gems that supposedly died, but something didn't add up.


Homeworld, Tribunal Chambers, three hour ago


"Diamond!" Topaz shouted as they rushed towards their brother, who was sitting on the edge of one of the beds in the chamber.

"Ah! Topaz!" Diamond said as he hugged his sibling. "Thank Gemian you are alright."

"I could say the same for you." Topaz replied happily as they patted Diamond on the back. "You did it brother, you stopped Onyx."

"I know…" Diamond sighed as he rubbed his face with his hand. "…but we lost many Gems in the process. I…I just wish that."

"Diamond…" Topaz interjected as they placed their hand on their brother's shoulder. "We had no choice, now without Onyx, the enemy will be powerless, and the Gems lost will be remembered for their sacrifice for the greater good."

"Of course…" Diamond said as he looked away, making a light grin to himself. "…for the greater good. However, I would not count your Gems before they form."

"What do you mean?" Topaz asked as they watched Diamond stand up and walk towards the balcony and lean on it. Topaz then approached their brother with concern. "Diamond…what do you mean by that?"

Diamond sighed as he turned to Topaz and placed his hand on his sibling's shoulders, looking into his eyes.

"Topaz, there is no easy way to say this." Diamond said as he bowed his head slightly. "But you need to know what happened to those Gems, what happened to Emerald."

"What happened to Emerald?" Topaz asked as their eyes widened in shock. "What happened to him?"

"I…I saw him leave his Gems behind to active the leave to gain access to Insidiae." Diamond explained as he continued to lean on the balcony edge. "He proclaimed that he would kill Onyx himself and become the leader of the Diamond Elite."

"No…that can't be…" Topaz muttered in shock. "I…I know Emerald…I created him….he is not like that…he…can't be…like…"

Topaz, need I remind you that he is one of the Gems you experimented on?" Diamond inquired as he stared at the last sliver of the sun that was setting in the distance. "He, like Sunstone, was one of many Gems that you modified to have their bodies changed into alternate identities? I am sure that such a change to his physical and mental composition could have resulted in some form of damage?"

Topaz pondered this carefully as he turned to Diamond, who was facing him while holding the Mirror of Lapis in his hand.

"I forgot to mention that as soon as he was outnumbered, he fled the colony and left us behind. Howlite and Hematite died because of his actions."

Topaz gasped in shock at the mention of Howlite. Topaz then looked to the mirror.

"Show me the Battle of Insidiae, focus on the involvement of the Gem Secundo Emerald of the House of TO.

The mirror activated upon command, showing the requested moments upon the glass before the Taskmaster. After a few seconds of watching, Topaz approached Diamond and looked toward him with an angry glare.

"Where is he?" Topaz asked with a cold and infuriated tone.

"He is currently in custody of the Gem colony Venatio, the Gems found him and he confessed his crimes as soon as he set foot on the colony."

Without a word, Topaz stormed away from Diamond and summoned a golden portal.

"I'm sorry Topaz." Diamond said to Topaz before they stepped into the portal. "But it was for the greater good. If you want, I can have him replaced with a more loyal Secundo."

"It doesn't matter." Topaz replied angrily as they began to step into the portal. "As far as I am concerned, he *is* the killer of Hematite and Howlite, and he is no Secundo of mine, I assure you!"

As Topaz entered the portal and it closed. Diamond sighed as he leaned on the, looking over the vast Gem City from under a dark blue sky.

"My sibling is the embodiment of the Crystal Mother's knowledge and wisdom, and his emotions and grudges blind him from a divine future." Diamond thought looked at his hand, "However, with Onyx "captured" it will be harder to acquire enough Gems, and then there is the possibility that the Gem known as Howlite could jeopardize my actions. I am sure she burned up in the atmosphere, but as a precaution, I should send Agates to comb the Homeworld just to make sure. Finally, there is the task of acquiring my sibling's vitae without stirring them. "

As he pondered the probabilities of what to do next, he heard the door behind him open and saw his sister Rose enter the room.


Homeworld, present day


As Topaz rode on Nilrem's back through the streets of Homeworld, the thoughts of Emerald's actions and Insidiae still were odd. If Emerald was a traitor, why did he turn himself in instead of fleeing the Gems like Onyx did, or try to create an army like Tiberium did? Moreover, the Secundos obey the orders of a Gemian to the letter, especially during crustal circumstances such as the battle of Insidiae. Even when Topaz arrived at Emerald's cell, he imminently knelt before Topaz and asked for forgiveness and during the confrontation, he did not try to attack once. The Taskmaster then summoned the Gem mirror and looked into the reflection.

"Show me my encounter with Emerald at the Gem Colony Venatio." Diamond commanded the mirror as they watched the whole encounter. As Topaz watched Emerald begin to heat up and engage his Ergokinetic ability, Topaz noticed something during the initial transformation. "Stop here." Diamond commanded the mirror.

As the mirror paused, Topaz noticed that around Emerald's eyes were small faint wisps of black mist, as Topaz played the scene, a thought shout into their head.

"Show me my encounter with Emerald before he engaged his Ergokinetic ability." Topaz commanded as they watched the scene with Topaz showing Emerald the mirror. As the Taskmaster used the mirror to straighten their hair, much to the embarrassment of said Gemian watching the scene, they noticed the Secundo before them, who was starting to shed strange tears from his eyes, they were black in color and seemed to burn into the floor, leaving behind small obsidian pebbles.

"What in the name of…" Topaz said in confusion as they examined the scene in the mirror. They had a feeling that he had read up about something like this during the war, but for the life of them they could not remember what the subject matter was. Nevertheless, Topaz did consider that Onyx was responsible for this, and as of now, only Diamond knew where she was being held.

With that in mind, Topaz directed Nilrem towards the Tribunal Hub, hoping that the very Gemian who stopped Tiberium and Onyx would be able to figure all of this out.


Homeworld, Tribunal Building, present day


Topaz entered the main doors of the temple, searching the floor of the building for their brother.

"Diamond…are you here?" Topaz shouted as they searched through the building.


Topaz scanned their surroundings as they entered the courtyard, the whole area was still under repair from the attacks by the Metalians and Onyx.

"Rose…are you here?" Topaz shouted, hoping their sister had seen her brother. "Rose, are you here?"

It was clear that neither Diamond nor Rose were here. Thus, leaving one area unchecked.

Topaz quickly entered the Tribunal building and rushed up to the center of the building and looked up towards the ceiling, which seemed to go for miles.

"Ascendit" Topaz said as they were engulfed in a blue light, which quickly rose them up the building until they reached the top, and placed him before the door to the Tribunal Chambers. Just as he was about to open the door, he heard a strange sound from the other side of the door.

…it was strange…but familiar…

…it sounded like breathing…

…weak breathing…

Topaz took a deep breath as they opened the door, ready for whatever was waiting for them beyond the door.


Homeworld, Tribunal Chambers, present day


Topaz was startled by the mess they saw. There was rubble and debris everywhere. Shattered crystals and glass were scattered everywhere as well as torn cloth of some kind. As Topaz picked it up, they recognized it as part of Rose's robe.

"My Gemia Rose, did you summon Lion in the chambers again?" Topaz sighed as they stepped over the broken sink. "I swear, if I even smell that Lion, then you better enjoy the throw rug that I-"

Topaz stopped dead in their tracks as they noticed the large spots of blood all over the floor, as well as the large pool of blood near the destroyed sink. Topaz then looked down as their boots and saw to their horror as they were stepping in the blood without realizing it. As Topaz looked back to the large pool of blood, they saw a large long drag trail going towards the bedrooms. As they began to follow the blood to one of the chambers and entered it, they saw that the room was ransacked, the bed was bloody and torn, oh yeah, and Rose's arm was sticking out from under one of the beds.

"Rose!" Topaz shouted as he approached Rose's arm and grabbed it. As the Taskmaster began to pull, the Taskmaster fell back as the torn arm of Rose fell in their lap. Upon seeing this, Topaz screamed as they threw the arm off and crawled back in shock.

"Wh…wha…wha…wh…wh" Topaz stuttered in horror, but not before they heard a crash from Diamond's room.

As Topaz stood up and walk towards the door. They placed their ear to the door and they could hear a hissing noise and a strange wet noise. As Topaz knocked the door down, the sight before them was a horror that Topaz had never seen in their 14 billion years of life.

There was Diamond, his robe was opened and bloody, as he was on top of Rose, who was bloody and was missing her right arm. As he was thrusting into her, Diamond's jaw was split open and a strange tube like tongue was attached to Rose, who was pale in color and she was a limp as a corpse.

"ROSE!" Topaz shouted as they summoned their mace and fired a bolt of energy at Diamond, who was shot in the side and thrown into the wall. Topaz quickly approached the weak Rose and lifted her up into her arms.

"Rose…" Topaz whispered to their sister as they looked in her blank eyes. "Rose it's me, it's your sibling Topaz."

"…drip…1 second…2 seconds…3 seconds…" Rose muttered in a weak voice. "…drip…1 second…2 seconds…3 seconds…drip…"

Topaz sighed in relief as they picked Rose up and began to carry her out of the chambers, only to be stopped by a familiar voice. Topaz turned to see Diamond standing before the balcony, his eyes were as red as molten metal, and his robe was stained with blood.

"Topaz…what are you doing?" Diamond asked as he slowly approached his siblings. "You do know that what I am doing is trying to save this Universe."

"Save it?" Topaz shouted in anger. "Save it? You raped Rose! YOU RAPED OUR SISTER! How would that save the Universe?"

"Using savagery, I can extract the most amount of vitae from a subject, such a Rose and yourself, and acquire the power to fulfill my mission." Diamond explained as he summoned his mace. "What is a better cure for savagery than savagery itself, wouldn't you agree?"

"Diamond…" Topaz stammered as they were disturbed by the sight before them. Diamond, the Old King, their brother, the brother who saved them and Rose from the Metalians, who guided them to protect the Universe. "…what happened to you?"

"I finally discovered my purpose Topaz." Diamond replied as he walked up to the balcony, looking down at the city below him. "I know what I have to do to save this Universe."

"I don't understand…" Topaz said in confusion. "…save it from what?"

Diamond turned towards Topaz and walked closer to him, bending down and wiping up a small pool of blood with his fingers.

"Eons ago, our mother defeated Obsidian and gave this Universe the "great gift" of freedom and free will." Diamond explained as he paced around the balcony "But what has the Universe done with this gift?"

Before Topaz could answer, Diamond took his mace and threw it at a building in the distance, the building collapsed in an explosion as Diamond turned to his siblings and smiled.

"They kill each other over pointless ideals and creeds. They let greed ruin their lives and their homes. They take for granted the great gift that our own mother died to provide. They are to free will as a spoiled child is with their toy. "As Diamond continued to talk, he took the blood on his fingers and began to draw a circle on his forehead. He then drew three downward triangles inside. "As a Tribunal, we have allowed our own corruption soil the very purpose Gemian wanted for us. That the true threat was never the forces that threatened the Universe, but rather the Universe itself…"

Topaz then heard footsteps from both sides of them as they looked to see their Secundos, Sunstone and Moonstone, standing around the Taskmaster and their sister.

"…which is why we are here now, my siblings." Diamond continued as he raised his arms into the air. "Because as of now, the Crystal Tribunal will be reorganized into the Diamond Authority!"

"You…you're insane!" Topaz shouted as they summoned their lance. "You might as well join Onyx!"

Just then, Diamond snapped his fingers and Onyx appeared next to the Old King.

"You…you work with her?"

"Work with her?" Diamond replied with a laugh. "Topaz, I created her…in fact, I am responsible for everything involving her and the Agates, the attacks on the colony ships, the assault on Homeworld, and of course, the battle of Insidiae. But I am sure Emerald has told you, has he?"

Topaz hesitated as they thought about Emerald and what happened to him. Topaz attention was drawn to the large groups of Agates surrounding them.

"I am sorry it had to end this way my siblings." Diamond said as he raised his arm. "I will promise that it will be quick, and I shall morn you after all of this is done."

In that instant, the next few moments were still uncertain. As Diamond approached the trapped Topaz and Rose, and as he was about to attack, there were several flashes of light, as standing between the Gemians and Diamond, were four strange creatures. They were humanoid in shape, but they were each wearing a red shirt with a gold star on it. Three of the creatures had a number 2, 3, and 4 on their faces while the fourth had no number but a strange elongated hairdo. The Gemians, Secundos and Agates watched them fight for several minutes before they disappeared in thin air.

"Wha…?" Diamond stammered as he tried to assess the situation. "Was that some form of escape plan?"

"No." Topaz said as they grabbed hold of Rose. "But this is!"

Topaz quickly aimed their lance to the ground and fired an energy bolt, breaking the floor and dripping them below. As they fell, the two landed on Nilrem, who began to bolt away.

As Nilrem began to outrun the pursuing Agates, Topaz held Rose up as they summoned a small bottle and uncorked it. They then summoned a small box of light blue gel and mixed them together.

"Gemian…please let this work." Topaz said to themselves as they began to lather it on Rose's wounds. Much to Topaz's relief, the mixture was working…except for the fact that Rose was still missing an arm.

"Damnit!" Topaz shouted as they nearly fell of Nilrem. "It's times like this that I wish that our bodies would be projections like what the Gems have."

Suddenly, there was a flash of a pink portal as a familiar pink familiar emerged from the portal.

"Lion?" Topaz shouted in amazed shock as the creature caught up with them. "You're alive!"

Topaz then noticed the familiar object that Lion was holding in his mouth, the very sigh caused Topaz to turn slightly pale.

"…and you have…Rose's…severed…arm." Topaz finished as they turned away and shutter. "Alright, Lion, can you help us find a safe house? Someplace that's not already in Gem control."

Lion growled as his eyes turned white and a portal open before the Gemians and their familiars through. As the portal closed, several Agates appeared, scanning the area before they flew off.


Homeworld, Tribunal Chambers, present day


Diamond sat in meditation as he walked around the chambers. As he approached the door, he noticed a small blue reflection and saw the Gem mirror. As he picked it up, he looked at it and saw his reflection. Diamond gasped as he began to see the argument he had with Rose, followed by her beating and then…her…

Diamond dropped the mirror as he backed away. Looking at his bloody hands, Diamond quickly fell onto his knees and began to vomit. As he stood back up and walked to the balcony, he slumped onto a wall and cupped his hands as he began to weep.

"Oh Gemia…" Diamond choked as he looked at his hands. "What have I done?"

Diamond stood back up and noticed a stray piece of sharp metal. Grabbing it, he placed the shrapnel on his neck and tried to pull, but as hard as he tried, he could not bring himself to pull the blade, only to discard it. Diamond then watched as Obsidian appeared before him, picking up the shrapnel blade and holding it in its hands

"Chomwecho eagar kuchitika mpaka kalekale onse lief?" Obsidian asked as it aimed the blade towards Diamond. "Koma inu ndinu amene mwayandikira kwambiri kwako cholinga chimenechi, kuti akulengereni mwangwiro chilengedwe chonsechi. Samayimasula kuwalola zako zonse mwakhama ntchito yola kuti asawononge chakudya."

"I...never wanted this!" Diamond shouted as he stood up to the Leviathan. "You…you made rape…my…o-own sister."

"Inde, chinali kukukumbutsani Kodi iwe chimene iwe adzakhala ndi chiyani mouziridwa ndi n'chiyani uli nacho chiyani mouziridwa ndi ntchito pofuna kuteteza chilengedwe chonse." Obsidian explained to its host. "Mayendedwe a kupereka nsembe nkhambe kucitwa na ndi njerwa komanso anayesa matope, koma kuti 'amenewa ankathandiza kuti kwa thupi ndi magazi."

"I…I know…" Diamond replied as he looked at the Homeworld city in the distance. He then looked back to Obsidian and summoning his mace. "…But it's over! I am your slave no longer!"

Obsidian simply began to make a deep vibration noise. Diamond suddenly felt as if his skull was being split open.


Then, just as the pain stopped, Diamond noticed that he was at a lab, and he was alone, and he had green blood on his hands.

"No…." Diamond said as he rushed deeper in to the lab, following the green bloody footprints. "No…please…no…not…not her…"

As Diamond stopped at a table, he looked at the white cloth and slowly pulled it off. As he did, Diamond shot back in horror as he saw the dead body of Peridot on the table before him.

"Perdot…" Diamond choked as he began to hug her corpse. "Peridot…I'm sorry…please….no…"


When Diamond opened his eyes, he was back before Obsidian in his chambers.

"Chiyani mouziridwa ndi Kodi iwe mukuwona Daimondi monga uja, sanamvere mulungu wa nthawi mwadongosolo kumabweretsa chisokonezeko, komanso chisokonezeko adzakhala ndi angakhalepo ndi imfa basi."

"I…I understand…" Diamond said as he looked to the sky. "If I…do this…will she be safe?"

"Kuti ine adzakhala ndi kutsimikiza kuti akhale iyayi chifukwa sadzakhudzidwa mkaziyo 'ananena r Mukhoza kukhala Kodi iwe kuti masikuwo achuluke monga ndili bwino kwa Mulungu."

"So be it." Diamond replied

As he felt Obsidian reenter his body, he saw Onyx approach him.

"What is it?" Diamond said coldly. "…and choose your words carefully."

"She's ready" Onyx replied as she held a white oval Gem to Diamond, who picked it up and studied it.

"This Gem has been warped." Diamond stated. "How did this happen?"

"Well…the process of combining three Gem samples was…difficult." Onyx explained. "Because you used my Gem essence, it resulted in a loss of sufficient strength, but she is fast and intelligent."

"That will do." Diamond replied as he summoned a syringe of Ichor and injected it into the Gem. "If my plans need her, then she will have to rely on more than power. Now for the final test."

Diamond then placed the Gem onto the ground and pointed his hand towards it.

"Vestibulum ad mecum!"

There was a flash of light as a small Gem knelt before the Gemian. Upon getting a good look at her face and hair, he noticed something.

"She looks like me." Diamond commented in surprise as he approached her, before he turned to Onyx. "What happened to her? What did you do?"

"When I said there were difficulties, I meant that the Gem essence of Howlite degraded." Onyx explained as Diamond began to approach her. "To fill the gap I had to apply more Gem essence and aside from mine there was another sample of yours."

"Are you telling me that this Gem is…is….defective?" Diamond growled grabbed Onyx by the neck and lifted her into the air. "I have no use for an inbred clod like that. Get rid of it!"

"But Master, she does not have the essence, but she still can use weapons." Onyx said as she gasped. "Please, give her a chance."

Diamond sighed as he approached the little pointy nosed Gem, who was cowering in the corner.

"Ad mecum…"

The Gem began to approach Master Diamond slowly.

"AD MECUM!" Diamond shouted, causing the Gem to approach Diamond and kneel before him.

"Who am I?" Diamond asked his new servant.

"You are DI, The Old King, Gemian God of Power, Order, and Justice." The little Gem replied.

Diamond raised an eyebrow in response "Correct, but WHO am I?"

The Gem hesitated, As Diamond was raising his hand to strike the little one.

"You are my Master, the one I will serve until death either by my enemy's hand or yours." The Gem blurted out, lightly sighing after she finished.

Diamond then lowered his hand as he approached the Gem and looked down towards her.

"Who are you?" He asked.

"I am a tool to be used by you Master." The Gem said in a toneless voice. "I serve without question or objection. My life is yours and my death is yours.

"Correct" Diamond relied as he moved his hand away from the little Gem. "You will do as I command when I command it, if you refuse to obey or fail my commands, I will not hesitate to punish you. Is that clear?"

"Yes Master." The Gem replied as she continued to look down at the ground.

"Now then, stand up and face me Vestibulum." Diamond commanded. "Then you will tell me who *you* are again.

The Gem stood up and looked to her Master with a small smile as she replied with only three words.

"I am Pearl."


Gem Colony Insidae, Ventalation shaft controls, several hours ago


"Go to the Gem colony Venatio, they are a neutral colony." Diamond explained to Emerald as he placed his fingers in this forehead, implanting the location in his head. "Tell them what you did, tell it in truth, and they will take care of you. I can promise that."

Emerald nodded lightly as he backed away from Diamond and summoned his stone wings. He then looked to Diamond who nodded lightly.

"Thank you Master." Emerald said softly. "I'm happy to know that you still care, even after everything I've done."

"There is no need." Diamond replied. "Now hurry, I will deal with things here, and remember: tell them all about what you did, and remember: do not lie to them."

Emerald nodded as he crouched down and shot into the air. As Diamond watched him disappear into the sky, he raised his hand and clenched it, uttering a single command.


As he did, the Agates that were scattered across the ground reformed into fulling functioning Gemdroids. As Diamond watched his machines lift the large ball of Agates and haul it away, Onyx appeared before him, kneeling as she held the black Gems of Hematite before The Old King.

"They were no challenge Master." Onyx explained. "I was hoping for a fight though, seeing as this was my predecessor."

"Only as a conduit, not a servant." Diamond corrected as he picked up the Gems and placed them in his robe. "Now go into the main chamber and procced with stage 3."

Onyx nodded as she disappeared. Just then, Diamond watched as a large Green pod appeared before The Old King, opening up to reveal the Gem known as Peridot. As she stepped out of the Pod, she approached Diamond, who smiled in delight as he approached her.

"I have informed Venatio about Emerald." Peridot said as she summoned her screen. "When he arrives on that colony, they will be aware of this actions and consider him both a coward and a traitor. His confession will be the final nail that will seal his fate.

"Good." Diamond replied as he looked to the sky. "Now all that is left to do is harvest Howlite's squad, create another servant, and harvest my siblings Vitae. With the power of Gemia, Obsidian, and especially you, we will have the power needed to save this Universe."

"That we will Diamond." Peridot said as she finished with her finger pad. As she retracted her pad and turned around, she looked up to see Diamond looking towards her with a warm smile as he placed his hand on her cheek.

"Wha-…Diamond." Peridot stammered as she blushed. "What are you doing?"

"I just had an interesting though…" Diamond said slyly to the Gem before him as he moved in closer. "I have noticed that whenever things are going great for me, for this Universe, you manage to be the one responsible. How do you do that?"

"I don't know, perhaps I'm the reincarnation of Gemia herself." Peridot said teasingly with a grin. "Some of the native from those planets I've been studying consider me a god to them. Perhaps I'm a natural leader, maybe a Gemian like you."

Diamond chuckled as he crouched down and kissed his lover.

"No, you are something greater Dilectione Mea." Diamond explained as he noticed the Agates next to him and nodded before he gave Peridot a kiss on her forehead. "Now if you excuse me, I have some intruders to purify."

Peridot smiled as she watched the Gemian vanish before her. As she sighed, she heard a giggle and turned to see Sunstone behind her. The Green Gem yelped as Sunstone chuckled in response.

"Sunstone?" Peridot shouted as she glared at the Gem before her. "What are you doing here? Shouldn't you be going back to spying on Topaz?"

"Oh I will…but right now, I'm focused on what you are "Dilectione Mea"." Sunstone said as he circled around Peridot. "I mean, I don't remember ever seeing you before the Metalian war, and yet, right after the war, here you are, the right hand of the Master and the one with all the power."

Peridot backed away as Sunstone approached her. As he quickly flinched forward, Peridot quickly activated her finger gun and aimed it at the Red Secundo, who raised his hands as he began to chuckle.

"Alright…alright…" Sunstone said with a grin. "You got me. I surrender. Jeeze you're more uptight than my sister. But just tell me one thing…"

Peridot lowered her weapon as Sunstone lowered his arms and approached Peridot.

"What is it about you that makes you his favorite, hmm? Is it the way you control his heart, or is the way you handle his "mace"?"

"Watch your tongue clod!" Peridot barked at the Secundo. "I got to where I am because of who I am, and because unlike you, I wasn't built into a servant."

"Right…" Sunstone said as he turned around and walked several feet before he stopped and turned to the Gem. "…you were "recruited" by Tiberium, you were his "leader" for the Metalians but then Diamond destroyed it, right?"

Peridot hesitated as she felt a drop of sweat drop down her brow. Sunstone noticed her expression and grinned as he began to walk towards her.

"You know, I wonder what my creator would say if they found out the Gem they have been working with was this Intelligence. Imagine it: The collected minds of the very race that nearly wiped out our people, laying in a bed with the divine leader of said people. I wonder if Creator would turn red or purple."

"You wouldn't dare." Peridot hissed as Sunstone. "If Diamond finds out…"

"That what?" Sunstone interjected with a wide grin. "That I ratted him out about his sex toy? That the Gem he screws is actually the collected minds of an entire race of killers? What would he do?"

"I would kill you." Diamond replied as he stood behind Sunstone, who turned in horror and quickly kneeled before the Gemian.

"Forgive me Miste-…I mean Master. I…I have been under pressure from my creator and…I …I wasn't thinking."

Diamond knelt before the kneeling Sunstone and placed his hand on the back of his head, slowly clenching it until he maintained a tight grip, he then slammed his servant's head into the ground below and knelt in towards it.

"I suggest that you use your head the next time you decide to speak towards your superior." Diamond hissed coldly. "Or the last thing that will race through your head will be my fist. This, I promise you."

As he let go, Sunstone quickly stood up and ran off, creating wings of fire as he took to the sky. As soon as the Secundo was gone. Diamond rubbed his brow and scoffed.

"I must remember to infuse him Ichor into him the next time I see him." Diamond said as he turned to Peridot. "If everything works out with Howlite I might even…"

Diamond stopped talking as he watched Peridot wrap her arms around her body and fall onto her knees. Tears rolled down her face as she began to sob softly. In that instant, Diamond quickly rushed over and pulled the weeping Gem into his arms.

"Peridot…" Diamond whispered as he rocked her slowly in his arms, he could feel his robe becoming hot and wet from Peridot's crying. "It's alright, my Peridot."

"I..I'm sorry." Peridot whimpered as her voice was muffled by Diamond's wet robe. "Sunstone was right…I…I…manipulated you…"

"Manipulated?" Diamond responded with confusion as he pulled Peridot from his chest and looked her in her tearful eyes. "What do you mean?"

Peridot sniffled and wiped her eyes with her hands before she continued.

"I…I made you attracted to me, and created a weakness in you." Peridot explained as she continued to shed tears. "You…you are Master Diamond the Unbreakable, You can't have any weakness…any vulnerability…I…I am the reason you can be hurt. If anything happens to me…if the others find out…then….then…"

Diamond hesitated, remembering his nightmare about his siblings and comrades killing Peridot before him. He paused for a moment, looking to Peridot as she crashed her face into her hands and began to weep. Diamond smiled as he lifted her face and looked into her tearful eyes once more.

"Peridot, the reason I am doing all of this is for you, this is all because of you." Diamond explained as he wiped tears from Peridot's eyes. "…and the reason for that is because you have been and always will be my Universe."

Peridot's eyes beamed as she heard those words. She then crouched down and grabbed onto Diamond's robe. Upon seeing the deep blush on her face and tense expression. Diamond smiled.

"Let me guess…" Diamond pondered as he stroked his beard. "You…need me?"

Peridot nodded as she looked away in embarrassment. Only to turn to see the warm smile from her lover, reply with only five words.

"As you desire, Dilectione Mea."

Chapter 7: Run! Rose Run!



…1 second…2 seconds…3 seconds…


…1 second…2 seconds…3 seconds…



Insidiae, Laboratory Number 11, several hours later


Howlite woke to the sound of breathing, as she came to she found herself strapped to a table, her left arm was positioned outward and a strange bracelet was attached to her arm and a metal gag mask around her face. As she tried to move, she could hear the sound of a woman screaming followed by the sound of a saw cutting through something hard and wet, as well as a child sobbing. This place was a genuine hell, and as she watched the door open, she saw the devil standing before her. There was "Master" Diamond, the leader of the Gems and the one responsible for the demise of so many Gems. As Howlite watched Diamond place a large assortment of tools and surgical on a nearby table. As Howlite looked at the sharp scalpels, a filled syringe of black fluid, spools of metal wire, and a small obelisk, she felt a sensation of loss. As Diamond set a thick metal vial down, he turned to Howlite.

"Ah! You are finally awake." Diamond said as he approached her, moving a stray hair from her head as she tried to shake him off. Diamond sneered and grabbed a tuff of Howlite's hair and slammed her head on the table she was strapped to.

"I would think a warrior of my sibling would learn some manners from them." Diamond said as he pressed a button on the side of the table, flipping it vertical and moving Howlite upward. "It's ironic though, Topaz is so reclusive and obsessed with the past, and yet, the answer to all our problems was in the past all along."

Diamond walked over to the table and picked up the metal vial. As he brought it back, he placed it next to Howlite's ear, allowing the gem to hear a skittering sound from inside.

"Do you hear that?" Diamond asked as he opened the vial and placed his hand on the mouth. Out from the vial, a small metallic centipede creature emerged. As Howlite watched the creature scrawl around in Diamond's hand, the Old King smiled as he turned his hand around to watch the insect move around.

"It is a creation that I call "The Mind Bug"." Diamond explained as he grabbed the mind bug by the back of its body and held it before Howlite. "Peridot designed it to burrow into the brains of my captives and extract their memories, which is quite useful for extracting data."

As Diamond held the mind bug near Howlite's head, Diamond noticed Howlite was starting to sweat. She was trying to talk, but only let out muffled grunts as the gag made it impossible to speak. Diamond approached Howlite and grabbed her hair, holding her head to the side and allowing him to hold the mind bug over the captured Gem's ear.

"It is a shame that you do not have anything significant to extract, but it would be important to test this bug on you. The last several subjects did not take their procedure very well. So let us see if five is the luck number, shall we?"

The next thing Howlite knew, she shrieked a muffled scream as she felt the mind bug dig through her ear, passing into her skull and begin to dig into her brain. The Gem tried to break free from her restraints, but it was no use. As Howlite looked around the room, everything was spinning and warped in shape. As Diamond appeared before her, she saw a freakish monster before her with a large beak and knives for hands.

"It seems the bug had broken your sense of perception and tore a portion of your brain tissue. Yet you are still in full solid formation and conscious" Diamond said as he walked over to her hand and picked up a pick and hammer off the table. "No matter, this next will only take a minute."

Howlite suddenly felt a sharp pain in her body as she saw Diamond dig a metal pick into her Gem. The Gem screamed as hard as she could, but between the brain bug and this, she began to gasp and cry as she felt the pick jab in deeper. Suddenly…


In that instant, Howlite felt the world around her spin like a top as the sound of distorted laughter filled her head. As Diamond picked up the shard of Howlite's Gem, he heard the sound of maniacal laughter as he turned to see the laughing Howlite before him. Diamond then noticed the black cracks that were starting to grow around her face and neck. Diamond sighed as he removed Howlite's mask. As he did, the Gem began to scream at her captor.

"How are you feeling?" Diamond asked as he placed the shard in his pocket. "I am impressed you are still alive, and even more that your Gem has healed…sort of. It seems you accepted the Ichor quite well and integrated it into your Gem, unlike your comrades. Now that I have a sample of your Gem I think I shall leave you here until I have everything prepared. Until then try to be on your best behavior, understood?"

Howlite sunk her head and began to mutter under her breath. As she looked up to Diamond, she began to say her mutterings louder and faster, revealing that she was only saying, and now shouting, a single word to the Gemian before her:


As Howlite continued to scream the words "Monster" like a broken record, Diamond sighed as he walked to the door he turned back to Howlite, who was still shouting at him.

"If you think I am a monster, then you should consider your companion "Emmy"." Diamond commented with a cold tone as he held up a pair of black stones. "He fled the planet after he activated my trap and left you and Hematite for dead."

Howlite stopped in place at the sound of his words and the sight of the Gems, recognizing them as Hematite. As Diamond closed the door before her, Howlite was left in the dark chamber. The Gem was silent for what felt for ages, but it did not take long for the Gem to replace her silence with strained cried. She continued to cry as she tried to break free from her chains.

Suddenly she heard the creak of metal, followed by the sensation of her bracelet breaking off.


Insidiae, Escape Pod Chamber, present day


Diamond walked down the hallways of Insidiae until he approached a door bedside him. As he entered it, he walked into a chamber with a large pod within wall. Along with the pod, the Gem Peridot was organizing three cylinders attached a small box. As she turned to see Diamond approach her, he held the shard of Howlite's Gem in his hand, showing it to the Green Gem before him.

"Here is the final component." Diamond said to Howlite as she took the shard and placed it into one of the cylinders. "Will it be enough?"

"Of course." Peridot replied as she pressed a button on the side of the box, causing it to vibrate and hum loudly. "But I don't understand why you need one of these….Gems? Don't you have enough Servants?"

"Topaz's twins are off planet searching for Smaragdus, the Diamonds are tending to my orders on Homeworld, and Onychinos will be…unable to assist us for the time being." Diamond explained as he approached the box and examined it. "Until Hematite is recalibrated, I cannot risk an opening in my defenses, besides, this one will be for covert operations only."

"Convert operations?" Peridot asked as she looked to Diamond with confusion. "Who is this Gem supposed to spy on?"

"That will depend if we fail our mission my dear." Diamond replied as he watched the box open, steam pouring out of the container like water. He then reached into the box and pulled out an oval Gem. This Gem was known to many Gems as a working class Gem, designed to function for menial servitude tasks for superior Gem and Secundos, while Rose and Topaz had forbid the practice, Diamond had modified a Gem in secret, composed of his Vitae, his Secundo Onyx's and the Gem Howlite.

"If anything happens to me, I will have this Gem keep an eye on my sister while I am away while I dispatch lunam lapidibus to observe Topaz. With my teachings and a little displace, it will become an important servant in my plan."

"I see…" Peridot said as she summoned her finger pad and began to access it. "Should I put it with the rest of them?"

"Of course." Diamond said as he gave the Gem to Peridot. "But do not forget to apply a code name and modify the registration for Rose Quartz."

"Understood…" Peridot said as she typed into the pad before her. "What do you want to call her?"

Diamond paused before her a name popped into his head, a name, like the others servants and Gems, was to identify their servitude to the Tribunal. While this Gem would be called something else, Diamond would refer this Gems by one name:

"She will be known as…Vestibulum…" Diamond said with a smile as he turned to Peridot.

Peridot nodded as she placed the Gem into a large pod. Diamond then approached the pod and then to Peridot.

"Peridot…it is time to initiate our plan." Diamond said as he grabbed her hands. "You know what to have do?"

"Of course." Peridot said as she looked up to Diamond. "I just hope…that after…after all of-"

Peridot was silenced as a pair of lips embraced hers. As the Old King kissed his lover, he pulled away and held her face in his hands.

"Peridot, after this is all over, I promise you, we will leave all of this behind." Diamond said with a smile. "We will live in a perfect Universe, together, I promise."

Peridot then pulled a folded piece of parchment out of her pocket and handed it to Diamond. As he looked at it with curiosity, he unfolded it and read what was inside.

Est DI: Poterit vas tuum gemma tuae somniant machinamenti?

Diamond umquam interiorem hominem Quo pulchrior es sis. Ego dilexi vos pariter cum primis diebus erogaverat volumus. Non laboro Propter alium quam te.

Autem Diamond, ego sum a Metalian. Creationem factus sum inimicus. Te amo quod tibi dicereautem unum scire possum quod pro vobis non potest esse. Sufficeret ut diceret fortiter Non sum quod ego te amo orbabor filio quoniam pavea. Venient autem dies, dicam te amo. Donec commodo Jerosolymis mecum manent.


"This is…" Diamond said as he looked at the poem with confusion as he looked back to Peridot. "A poem...your poem."

"This was the first poem I wrote after you gave me life." Peridot said with tears welling in her eyes. "I want an answer from you when you return, is that clear?"

Diamond paused for a moment before he sighed and placed the poem in his coat.

"I give you my word, my Peridot." Diamond said as he stared into his lover's eyes. "Twicefold."

Just then, there was the blare of an alarm as sirens and light began to flash.

"What the?" Diamond shouted as he looked to a terminal. "It's the laboratory sector…"

"Howlite…" Diamond muttered under his breath as he clenched his fists. "Dampnas!"

"I'll handle it." Peridot commanded as her hand turned into a laser gun. "You need to go back to Homeworld, continue with the plan."

"Peridot…" Diamond said with shock as he reached for her. "I can't leave you with…her. I have to keep you safe."

"I'll be fine Diamond." Peridot said as she snapped her fingers and several Agates appeared before her. "I have backup."

Diamond entered the pod as he looked back to Peridot, who pressed a nearby console and closed the pod on Diamond. As the pod door closed on Diamond, The Old King watched as Howlite burst through the door, ax in hand and a insane grin on her face.

"Yu can't hide monster frum me!" Howlite snarled as she held up her ax. "I gotta cut him up, he killed my friends!"

Peridot quickly slammed the console next to her, jettisoning the pod with Diamond in it into space.

"Tutus esse dilectione mea." Diamond whispered as he watched the Insidiae colony shrink in the distance.

"Sorry, you just missed him." Peridot replied smugly as she armed both of her finger guns. "Perhaps I can leave a message for him, but I don't think he accepts messages from dead clods."

Howlite screamed as she clenched the ax in her hands. She then looked up and began to giggle loudly as she grabbed a tuff of her hair.

"I NEED TO KILL MONSTER!" Howlite howled as she ran through Peridot and the Agates and slammed her ax into the escape pod door, ripping out a large chunk of the door and creating a vacuumed into space. Peridot and the Agates quickly applied magnetized grips onto the metal floor as they saw that Howlite was nowhere to be found. She then turned and saw that among the rubble of the room, there was an Agate with its lower body cut off.

"Oh-no…" Peridot gasped as she looked through the hole in the chamber and saw the flash of an Agate's thruster in the distance.


Diamond peered through the window of his pod to see the Homeworld coming towards him. As he sighed and sat back in his seat, he heard a loud thump from on top of the pod.

"What the…?" Diamond asked before a large Ax blade shot through the hull of the pod and ripped out a chunk of the pod and sucked Diamond out, only to be caught by a familiar whit hand with a cracked Gem. Diamond saw the crazed Howlite before him, her eyes black shot and a wild smile streached on her face. Diamond quickly summoned his mace, only for Howlite to quickly slice the mace from his hand along with several fingers. As Diamond shouted in pain, Howlite raised her ax and sliced into Diamond's shoulder, spraying blue blood into the black stars. As Diamond looked to Howlite as she aimed the ax at his neck, he gasped before he began to laugh.

"What's so funny Monster?" Howlite snarled as she pressed harder, "WHAT IS SO GEMIA-DAMNED FUNNY?"

Diamond pointed with his unscathed hand at the planet behind Howlite, who forgot to realize what happens when a high speeding projectile in space begins to enter a planet's atmosphere.

Suddenly, the pod began to burn through the atmosphere as everything upon it, including Howlite and Diamond began to ignite. As the cracked Gem screamed in pain as she tried to put out the flames, they both began to descend to the planet below. Diamond tried to enter the ship, but could not as Howlite still had a grip on him.

"YOU'RE NOT GETTING AWAY FROM ME MONSTER!" Howlite shouted as she tried to lift her burnt body. "YOU MADE A TERRIBLE MISTAKE FOR WHAT YOU DID TO ME!"

Diamond then noticed a piece of sharp metal dangling from the broken hull next to him, using his damaged hand he barely grasped the shrapnel and plunged it into Howlite's wrist.

"I do not make mistakes Howlite…" Diamond informed coldly as he twisted the shrapnel. "…I erase them!"

As he pulled the shrapnel out, Howlite felt her hand release as she metal had sliced through her wrist. The cracked Gem watched as the pod shot away from her, while she began to plummet straight into the ground below.

"I failed…" Howlite muttered as she watched the ground begin to approach as an alarming rate. But just as she began to black out, she could swear she saw a pink flash of light, and a tuff of pink hair in her face.


Homeworld, Gem Recovery Hub, Private Chamber, several hours later


Howlite awoke to find herself in a bed in a strange room. As she stood up, she looked at her cracked Gem and then clenched her fist. Just then, she heard a door open, and saw a familiar face before her. It was Rose Quartz, the Lion, here before her.

"Master Rose!" Howlite addressed as she quickly knelt before the Gemian, surprised at how quickly she had healed, let alone moved.

"Stand up Howlite." Rose said in a calm but serious tone. "We need to talk."

Howlite then remembered what had happened on Insidiae and bolted up before the pink Gem.

"Master! Monster had betrayed us! He staged the attacks and…he…and…he…"

"…stopped Onyx once and for all." Rose interjected. The tone in her voice was still concerned.

"Wha…" Howlite stammered as she tried to process what had happened. "But…I saw…"

"Diamond brought in Onyx and now she is on trial for rebellion and will be executed." Rose explained as she stared deep into the eyes of the little Gem before her. "…as will all the Gems that sided with her."

Howlite paused as he understood what Rose had meant by that. The very though that Rose, the forever loving, would call her a traitor was more painful than any brain bug. Howlite stood back before she clenched her fists.

"HE'S LYING!" Howlite shouted as she slammed the wall beside her, startling Rose. "HE CREATED ONYX, HE STARTED EVERYTHING! HE TURNED JADE INTO A MONSTER!"

"Howlite…I know my brother, he led the attacks on Insidiae and nearly died…" Rose paused before she continued "…from you."

Rose then summoned a projection from her Gem as it displayed Howlite attacking Diamond from the pod. Howlite watched as she attacked the old king without mercy, her eyes black shot and pouring obsidian tears. She then looked to Rose as fresh watery tears rolled down her eyes.

"It is bad enough that Emerald fled from the attack." Rose sighed. "Topaz is beside themselves about this."

"Rose! You have to believe me!" Howlite begged as she fell upon her knees. "I'm innocent! Diamond…He's the one behind all this! He's a monstrous traitor!"

At that moment, Rose gave Howlite a cold glare, the Gem could see the disgust in her eyes as she looked to the Gem before her.

"You insult my brother, the one that led you into battle, you then turn on him and nearly kill him, and you call *him* a traitor. If I was not the Exemplar of compassion, I would not even consider doing this for you."

Rose summoned a small scroll and dropped it before Howlite.

"I am giving you a choice Howlite. You can leave now, and be banished from the Homeworld and the Gems, or face execution. If you choose the former, I will not stop you, nor tell anyone about this."

Howlite looked to the scroll and then back to Rose. As she did, a smile grew on her face as she opened the scroll and summoned a portal.

"I get it now, you talk big about being the Gemian of compassion but only for those who support your cause?" Howlite chuckled grimly as she stood before the portal, looking back to Rose with a tearful smile. "You are no Lion…you're just a selfish Ferreo!

Rose was stunned as Howlite stepped through the portal. As Rose stood in the camber for what felt like house, composing what she had heard from Howlite, a though continued to burn in her mind, something she could not answer on her own.

But perhaps her brother could answer it for her.


Homeworld, Tribunal Chambers, present day


Diamond stood over the balcony of the chambers, looking over the vast Gem City from under a dark blue sky. Diamond then looked at his hand, which just about a few hours ago was missing several fingers, but was now healed, as was the rest of his body. Moreover, the crisis with Onyx was finished, which for Diamond was a problem, caused by Howlite. Fortunately, the Cracked Gem probably burned in the atmosphere.

As he pondered the probabilities of what to do next, he heard the door behind him open and saw his sister Rose enter the room.

"Ah! My little sister, the savior of my life." Diamond said as he hugged the pink Gem. "Is everything alright with the Gem I saved?"

"Yes, she's alright." Rose said as she walked over to the nearby sink and turned on the water. "Although she will probably have no recollection of what happened up there, if she has any."

"Good to hear." Diamond replied as he turned back to the balcony. "The more we forget about Onyx's actions the better."

Rose turned on the water as she began to rinse her hands through them. It was a pointless exercise for Gems, but for Rose, she always enjoyed using it to relax after a difficult day.

"By the way?" Rose said as she continued to rinse her hands in the warm water. "I found another survivor."

Diamond flinched, but just a little, nothing to draw any attention.

"Another?" Diamond replied as he turned to Rose. "Who was she?"

"I don't know" Rose lied as she continued to wash her hands. "I found a pod outside of the main colony and when I moved in closer there she was. She…was injured and she was…different... She attacked me, called me a monster before then fled, I don't know why?"

"I suspect it had something to do with her capture." Diamond said as he approached Rose and stood behind her. "I could barely imagine what that dreadful things Onyx did to her."

Rose hesitated as Diamond turned his sister around and smiled at her. She looked up to Diamond and smiled back.

"But don't concern yourself with this madness." Diamond said as he kissed her forehead. By tomorrow, Onyx will never harm another Gem, and I will make sure anything like this will never happens again. I promise."

"I know you will." Rose said with a relieved smile as she began to walk away. "You always have a tendency to be absolute."

"Of course I am." Diamond said as he turned and walked back to the balcony. As rose was half way across the room, she heard Diamond shout back to her.

"But if it will make you feel any better, I will send my elite to find Howlite for you." Diamond said as he leaned on the balcony. "We can then get her back to the temple and fix her up. Where did you last see her?"

Rose paused as she stood at the door, she then looked back to Diamond with a nervous expression.

"Nearby the warp pad hub..." Rose replied with a black tone, her eyes staring at the back of her brother. "…but I never said it was Howlite."

Diamond froze, he realized what he had just heard. In that instant, the room became dead silent, the only sound that could be heard was the small drips from the sink between the two Gemians. Diamond then looked back to Rose, seeing the look of concern in her eyes, he knew it was over. Diamond then looked back to the balcony and sighed.

"Diamond…" Rose said with a worried tone as she began to approach The Old King "…what have you done?"

Diamond stood up and turned to Rose, she gasped as she saw the molten red eyes glare back towards her.

"I did what had to be done." Diamond replied coldly as he approached his sister.

"No…" Rose said as she placed her hands on her head, realizing the truth that was standing before her. "…!"

"Do not weep for me my sister." Diamond said to Rose as he approached her. "I have seen our true purpose. The reason we exist."

"You…you were behinds all this?" Rose pleaded as tears began to trickle down her face. "The attacks on Homeworld…the Insidiae ambush."

"I had to Rose." Diamond explained as he walked around her. "Those Gems will power an army of solders that will multiply with each new Gem acquired. An army composed of the brilliance of the Metalians, and the power of the Gems. With this, no force will stop me from saving this Universe."

Just then Diamond heard the sound of blade as he turned to see Rose, armed with her sword and shield, with a tearful glare before her brother. As she stood before him, the two Gemians could hear the sound of rain from outside the chamber, followed by the flash of lightning and the roar of thunder. As Diamond looked at the sight before him, a smile grew upon his face.

"What are you going to do?" Diamond asked as he approached Rose.

"I…I'll stop you." Rose replied as she aimed her sword at him.

"Then if you want to stop me…." Diamond said as he grabbed Rose's blade, and aimed it at his chest. " will have to kill me."

Rose gasped in shock before she regained her focus. As she looked into Diamond's eyes, she felt a sensation of horror before her, she felt the desire, the rage to plunge her sword into her brother, but she couldn't.

"Come on Rose, you want to stop me, don't you?" Diamond asked as he held the blade with his hands, blue blood began to trickle down the sword as he held it tighter. "Then do it! Kill me Rose!"

Rose felt her hands begin to shake.

"Kill me!"

She then felt her stomach knot up as fresh tears began to flow down her eyes.

"Kill Me!"

The sword began to waver as Rose's shield began to dissipate.


Rose screamed as she pulled the sword away and threw it across the chamber, the blade slide on the floor before it fell off the balcony. Rose then fell to her knees and began to weep. She cried until she began to choke.

"I…I can't…" Rose gasped as she tried to stand up. "You…you are my brother…You can't…can't…"

"I know, it is been since our conception that a Gemian, even Tiberium, cannot kill another Gemian." Diamond replied as he watched Rose stand up and stumble before Diamond and grab his robe, looking up to him with pleading eyes. "But there is one thing that I found the most interesting."

The next thing Rose knew, Diamond had pulled his arm back and shot his fist into Rose's stomach, pushing all the air out of the Gemian's lungs and causing her to collapse to the floor. As she tried to get up, Diamond raised his foot and kicked his sister in the face, causing her to topple onto the floor. Diamond then grabbed Rose by the back of her dress and up towards him.

"There was never anything about us hurting one another." Diamond hissed, perhaps we should see how far we can go, shall we?"

Before Rose could answer, Diamond threw Rose into the sink, breaking it into chunks of clay and dousing Rose's face with water. Diamond then grabbed Rose's feet and dragged her out the rubble. As he stopped pulling her, Rose, grabbed a chunk of the sink and threw it at Diamond, who blocked the attack only to see his sister stumble upward and towards the balcony. As she raised her arm to summon Lion, she was tackled by Diamond. Who pinned her arm behind her back.

"Sorry Rose, but we cannot have any uninvited guests." Diamond said as he stood up, placing his foot on Rose's back as he placed her arm under his arm and hand it with both hands.

"Diamond…NO!" Rose shouted as she felt her arm begin to lightly pull from the socket. "Diamond please! I won't summon Lion! Please…Dimy!"

"I know you will...but like what you said…" Diamond said as he planted his foot deeper into Rose's back. "…I have a tendency to be absolute."

In that instant, Rose felt the blinding pain and screamed from the top of her lungs as she felt Diamond, her older brother and protector, tear off her entire right arm. Diamond felt the warm blood splash across his face and body as he held the limb of his sister in his hands.

"It seems I have "dis-armed" you, my sister." Diamond commented as he pointed to the arm and laughed. "Do you see Rose? I can be funny too! I can be humorous!"

Rose gasped as she watched Diamond discard the arm onto the floor and kneel behind her until he was next to her face.

"I am sorry for that, but this is necessary to rid you of your corruption." Diamond hissed to Rose.

Diamond then bent back up and looked down at Rose's body. As he looked to see Rose looking at him, he sneered before he forced Rose's lower half upward, tearing open the back end of her dress.

"NO! DIAMOND NO!" Rose pleaded as she felt Diamond's hand grab her remaining hand and hold it forward.

"DIMY PLEASE! NO! I'M SORRY DIMY" Rose pleaded as she felt Diamond rip her inner lining open, exposing her Gemhood to the Gemian behind her.

"I'M SORRY DIMY…" Rose cried as she heard the sound of Diamond removing his rob.

"I know Rose, but you have to be punished for your corruption…" Diamond said with a reassuring tone as he aimed his weapon towards its target. "…and what better tool to end savagery than savagery itself? Don't you agree?"

Rose suddenly felt the pointed weapon of Diamond behind her, in a last effort to escape, she tried to break free, but it was no use, she was too weak from the attack and with only one arm, she was but a small wounded lamb, under the mercy of the mighty vulture above her.

In that instant, Rose felt her brother stab himself into her with a hard and powerful thrust. Rose howled in pain as she felt the pulsing thrusts of Diamond enter and exit her again and again. As the process when on Diamond began to create and steady rhythm and he moved Rose's other arm behind her back.

The pain was too much for Rose, she could feel Diamond piston push into her and then pull out like an endless cycle, as well as the wet fluids trickle down her body. Diamond then planted his hand on Rose's head, ensuring his grip on his little sister as he raped her. As Rose tried to focus out the pain, a memory suddenly shot through her mind.


Unknown location, 14 billion years ago


"Dimy" Rose said as she ran up to her brother, who was meditating underneath a certain tree.

"Yes Rose." Diamond said as he took a deep breath and turned to the little Gem beside him. "If this is about that joke about butterflies, I finally get it."

"No…I was wondering." Rose asked, trying to remember the word that her siblings called it. "How do you…uh…medodate?"

"Do you mean meditate?" Diamond asked as he raised an eyebrow. "It's really simple actually."

Rose crawled onto Diamond's lap and waited for Diamond to continue.

"If you want to truly meditate, you must clear your mind of all feelings, all emotions and the world around you."

"How?" Rose asked bluntly, causing the not so Old King to sigh.

"Look…" Diamond explained as he looked around until he saw a perfect sight. "…see that leaf?"

Rose watched the leaf, noticing it was dripping water onto the soil below.

"Now I want you to, *silently*, count the seconds between each drop. Can you do that?"

Rose nodded as she stared at the leaf above her, waiting for the next droplet until…


…1 second…2 seconds…3 seconds…


…1 second…2 seconds…3 seconds…



Present day


As Rose continued to feel Diamond pump through her, the young Gem looked around at where she was staring and then she saw it.


A lone crystal from the balcony was dripping in rain water. A perfect specimen for meditation.

As Rose stared at the droplets that fell from the crystal, she began to count the time between them.


…1 second…2 seconds…3 seconds…


…1 second…2 seconds…3 seconds…


At that moment, for that moment, all was bliss once more.

At least, until it stopped raining…

Homeworld, Main Courtyard, several weeks later
Crowds of Gems swarmed in the courtyard as they prepared for a grand message from the Tribunal. It was apparent that the newly created Warp pads were finally installed onto the various planets that were inhabited by the Gems. Now the time had come for the Gemians to open these pads and expand the Gem's reach twice fold. As the crowds of Gems flocked in the courtyard, among them were three Gems of special notion. There was Emerald, Howlite and Hematite, who were in the center of the mob…in the blazing sun…wearing the full uniforms.
"By Gemia, how much longer?" Howlite groaned as she summoned her ax to shield her from the sun. "If I stand her any long, I'm gonna pass out."
"Stay strong Howlie." Emerald said as he wiped his brow of sweat. "It should be any minute."

Gem Colony Venatio, present day
Topaz marched through the walkways of the colony, their face concealing a growing rage over the news they had heard. It had been hours since they evacuated Gems to this colony, and provided their own Secundos, their creations, to battle alongside their brother. But now that time was over and for the Taskmaster, there was a new issue to deal with, because just recently, a certain Secundo had been found nearby Venatio, a certain Gem by the name of Emerald, who moments ago had escaped Insidiae and left his comrades behind, especially Howlite and Hematite. As Topaz continued to storm through the halls towards the holding cells, they were approached by a large six armed Gem with a turquoise Gem over her eye.
"How long has he been in custody?" Topaz asked the Gem.
"Since we found him Master." Turquoise replied with he

It has come to my attention that EMM is now a year old (as of last Febuary).


Because of this, I will be celebrating the belated birthday of EMM answering ANY question regarding EMM and it's details.

Also, because I am a egotistical prick who has a addiction to curiosity, if anyone would like, I would enjoy to hear the tale as to what drew you to this fanfic and what compelled you to follow it up until now.

But first, a story:

(I told this story before, but here is a version with picture.)

Once upon a time, there were two brothers, the older one was a fan of a new TV show on Cartoon Network known as Steven Universe. In addition, this brother was a frequent lurker of the notorious site known as 4CHAN, specifically the board known as /CO/- Comics and Cartoons. As such, there were specific threads on this board known as /SUG/- Steven Universe Generals, which discussed the show and drew fanart for it.

Now this brother enjoyed the various drawings the anons of /SUG/ made for others, and his younger brother wondered how far they would go. So, a bet was made between these brothers, with 50 bucks on the line, the bet was to make the most disturbing request and see how long before the user was banned. But if the request was made beforehand, then the older brother had won.

Now there was the simple question was what to make as a request?

Well after a few days of lurking, an Anon posted a simple picture:
The Catalyst by ScrapstheFool
(Fun fact: This image is forbidden to post on /SUG/ because of...obvious reasons)

But it was not this picture that created inspiration, but rather, the reply of another Anon that started everything:
Subject Zero by ScrapstheFool

At this moment, the older brother had a idea, he would make a request involving a crazed Pearl killing Steven, and after browsing Gelbooru for inspiration, he found the inspiration and created his request:
 tumblr myvrpb2RNr1t5eiggo1 1280 by ScrapstheFool
(Note: This is not the original post, but the ones that came after.)

So the post was made and it was dropped like a soda can in the trash. So in response, the brother had a new idea: He would make the same post in EVERY THREAD until the request was made.

So the request was halfway created, but not finished:

However the brother did not give up, and continued to prevail, eventually he donned a name given to him by a deviant named :iconflajingman:, and that name was...


From then on, this continued for three solid months. Resulting in a variety of responses from outright hatred:

Now it seemed like it was over and it was done. But then a anon told me that I should make a fanfic to accompany this work, and it was decided to create the fanfiction know as Everyone Makes Mistakes.

Everyone Makes Mistakes Chapter 1: The Date
Original Story by: Scraps
Characters Created by: Rebecca Sugar
Chapter 1: Date with an Half-Gem
“Is she here yet? I need everything to be absolutely perfect!”
A young boy with a rose quartz stick in his belly was pacing around the kitchen room in a nice tux. This boy’s name was Steven and he was part of a group of worldly protector known as the Crystal Gems. His job is to protect his town and the rest of the world from deadly crystal creatures. However, he does not fight alone, for he has three other Gems to help him. They are Garnet, the most calm and sophisticated of the 3, Amethyst, the most wild and carefree, and Pearl, who is the most cautious and at times, a complete perfectionist. All four of them have faced deadly challenges in the past but now, Steven will face one of the most difficult challenges of his life: His first anniversary of his relationship with the young bookworm named Connie. All the other gems were helping Steven get ready for this date and

As I made the fan fic as originally a simple one-shot it however, I eventually began to break it down into chapters for ease. Then I began to tinker with the structure and scenes to improve on the shock value.

After a day of tinkering, I was working at my local Target with pushing carts. It was a cold winter evening and I was thinking about Everyone Makes Mistakes and another SU fanfic I would work on known as Those Who Came Before. I was considering adding in several shoutouts from EMM into TWCB, but then, after slipping on black ice and slamming my head of the asphalt, I had a epiphany:

 To combine both stories into a huge fanfic series.

So after I finished with the final chapter of EMM and began to work on the next part, A Girl and Her Lion, I was approached by the marvelous and talented :iconcleverun: who wanted to convert my story into a comic.

If you want to know if I said yes, this should clarify that:

Everyone Makes Mistakes: The Comic 00 by ScrapstheFool

As we planned on the comic, :iconcleverun: introduced me to :iconcrazyspaced: and then I met another deviant named :iconhikumirin: whose character Howlite was inspired by my fanfic. Then I met the talented :icondeitydeviantwarrior: :icontrollface-mastah:, :iconacenos: and :iconpunkpanda15: and soon after, the seven of us evolved into the EMM braintrust, and the :iconemm-headquarters:.

As of today, the fanfic and comic are still in progress, and none of this would be possible for those who helped make it into what it is today.

I would again like to personally thank the following for their service for EMM, and the Steven Universe Fandom and for allowing me to inspire them as much as they have for me.:

Rebecca Sugar (Yes, even she helped! ;-D)

...And all the fans and small collaborators. Stay strong and devoted my comrades!

Now, if you excuse me...

Now let's look at the promo for the new Steven Bomb and....

Ead by ScrapstheFool

I know I promised a new chapter after my classes were over, but right now I have to wait until the Steven Bomb is over, for obvious reasons.
Apologyquilt by ScrapstheFool
But let me inform you of a few reasons for this delay and the reason why EMM takes so long to publish:

My goal, or rather, my mission, for EMM is to create a story that is 100% consistent with SU. To do this, I have to study and calculate all the information, details, and data from the show to create a balanced story. If there is one inconsistency in EMM with SU, I have to fix it, no matter how deep it goes. This is the reason why I take so long during episodes is because when a piece of data about a character, setting, or fact is present. I have to compare it with EMM's data. This can be stressful with information that is hardwired into the base of EMM. However, I have made precautions for situations like this and I can easily work around said situation.  Nevertheless, it still is a difficult process, given the other information I have to work with.

To help with clarity, please observe the following graphs:

As this demonstraits, many ariters have a system that helps balance their story and provides the meat and potatos. With me, it's like this:

1. Process the base of the chapter and what will occur.

2. Study the old episodes of SU needed for chapter.

3. Study new episodes of SU to obtain information and check for inconsistencies.

4. Check for inconsistencies in SU/EMM.

5. Revise inconsistencies to allow flow.

6. Write chapter base and then expand it.

7. Have my glorious collaborators (To whom I'm dreadfully sorry for being a ghost.)

8. Proofread the chapter for grammar/spelling.

9. Publish chapter.

10. Revise if needed.

11. Prepare for next chapter and take pills.

12. ???

Fun fact: To find inspiration for EMM. I occasionally deprive myself of sleep so I hallucinate. I also take amphetamines to add a little juice to the fire.
Tumblr Inline N1pjytyziq1qd5iw1 by ScrapstheFool
While there are no deadlines for EMM, I do feel guilty for the long periods of silence in regard of the fanfic.

So I hope this helps you understand that I'm not dead, just stressed out over the new Steven Bomb. Here's hoping for a decent backstory.

But don't worry about me. I'll be writing the next chapter of EMM very soon. Until then Deviants:

Welp guys, the second and a half part of the "Everyone Makes Mistakes Saga is Complete. I want to thank everyone who helped make this possible. Especially :iconcleverun: :iconcrazyspaced: :iconhikumirin: and :icondeitydeviantwarrior:, who's collaboration and assistance made all of this this possible.

Now we close this chapter of the story and move on to the next one:

Those Who Came Before Act 1/Act 2: The Crystal Gems have protected the universe for many years. However, what happened to the other gems? Who created them? In addition, what caused their near extinction? Truths will be revealed about past lives and the History of the Crystal Tribunal will be revealed.

Innocence  will be lost, war will be cast, a sacrifice no one would expect. All this and more coming soon.

Hey man, I would like to ask of what do you think of the MLP movie of 2017. And speaking about the movie, who di you think is going to voice the villian of the film King Cosmos? For me is going to be Frank Welker with his Megatron G1 voice and you?
ScrapstheFool Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2015  Professional Writer

I never knew there was going to be a MLP movie.

Also I guess KC would be voiced by James Earl Jones, or someone like him. 
carminesavastano Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2015
Hmm..This would be a good idea. By the way,the announce a part of the plot and on the 20th of July or August not only is confirmed that the movie will be release by Lionsgate but even that Kristin Chenoweth will be in the movie as a new characters!,

I will have to keep an eye on that then.

Mr. Scraps, I have a canon alert for you:

Recently, Ian J. Quartery of SU fame revealed the first names of Connie's parents: Doug and Priyanka Maheswaren.

So yeah, knowing is half the battle and all that.
ScrapstheFool Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2015  Professional Writer

I already did it twenty-four hours ago.

But thanks for the update.

Dude, what is this "Core Upgrade"? I can barely understand a thing about this stuff, I have to give money to DA to be able to do things I was able to do before?
ScrapstheFool Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2015  Professional Writer
I think it's a fancy way of saying "premium membership", given the features are the same.
killb94 Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2015
...So what should I do, press "give" and everything will be normal again? Or by doing that I'll give them money? If so then I'll just avoid doing anything.
ScrapstheFool Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2015  Professional Writer
I would just let it be.

I don't see why you should bother. Unless you want premium membership.

It's your money.

I will work on Pink and White as soon as I find time to.

I am a bit preoccupied with EMM and the EMM comic.

But I have a chuck of chapter three done already, so be patent, it'll be worth the weight.
