Chapter 5: The Old King's Lover

[*]

Several thousand years later

[*]

In the centuries that followed the Metalian war, the Gems expanded into a vast and powerful force within the known Universe. With the technology left behind by their fallen foes. The Gemians were able to mold their once small group of protectors into a mighty empire, with newly engineered tools, ships and machines to expand their protection to the Universe. Upon Master Diamond's recommendation, the planet that the Gemians were born upon was recolonized into the primary homeworld for the Gem species and to serve as the crown jewel for a new order of Universal protection. These protectors would be ruled by their idolized leaders, the Crystal Tribunal, consisting of Master Diamond, the Old King and the savior of the Gems, Master Topaz, the Taskmaster and the bringer of the golden age, and Master Quartz, the Lion and the guide for the Gems. As for the Gems, they were reorganized into a new protective service known as the "Crystal Gems".

However, without a war to fight, the purpose of the Gems soon began to become a personal debate between Topaz and Rose, with Topaz wanting to involve them in only Gem related issues, while Rose wanted to help the Universe as a whole. Diamond on the other hand, was usually occupied with his work on Insidiae, which he reorganized as his private laboratory. He appeared on homeworld every now and then, usually with his assistant Peridot beside him, but those times were few as he quickly returned to his mysterious colony.

As for the Secundos, they were given high positions within the Gem Empire. Sunstone and Moonstone were recruited by Diamond to assist him on Insidiae, while Lapis was sent to help restore planets damaged by the Metalians. As for Emerald, he was given his own squadron of Gems to train, several of these Gems included Howlite, his longtime friend and battle companion, and Ruby and Sapphire, who with Rose and Diamond's help, had become the powerful Gem fusion known as Garnet.

[*]

Homeworld, Diamond training academy, present day

[*]

As Emerald stood before Garnet, he watched with a grin as the Gem summoned her gauntlets. The tall Gem lunged at her opponent, only for Emerald to side step the Gem and grab her arm and threw her across the courtyard. Garnet fell to the ground with a hard thud as he quickly spun back up and charged at Emerald. As she began to rapidly punch Emerald, the green Gem dodged punch after punch, finally parrying one of her swings and giving her a powerful uppercut, knocking her back to the ground. As Garnet tried to get up, she saw a sword aimed at her face. She then looked up to the holder of the blade, Emerald, who looked to her with a smile as he dissipated his weapon and extended his hand to her.

"Well that was better…" Emerald commented as he watched Garnet grab his hand and lift herself up. "You still are just relying on brute force though, it makes you vulnerable."

"I kept telling her that." Garnet replied with a calm demeanor. "But she refused to listen."

"That's a lie!" Garnet yelled as she looked away. "You always blame me for being so blunt."

As Garnet continued to argue with herself, Emerald looked away with a sigh as he rubbed his eyes. For several weeks now, he took on a request by Master Diamond to train the newly formed Garnet into a Diamond Elite, the Gems that served under the Old King. However, the problem was that the synchronization if Garnet's fusion was still on the fence, given the constant disagreements that her fusers, Ruby and Sapphire, had in terms of combat and coordination. However, at least some progress was being made, even though it was at a snail's pace.

As Emerald turned to continue training Garnet, he saw a familiar sight before him, there was the Old King, Master Diamond approaching him. The moment Garnet saw him, she stopped arguing with herself and knelt to the Gemian. Emerald was surprised at the sight before him. It had been centuries since he last saw Diamond. He noticed that his appearance had drastically changed since their last encounter. Diamond's hair was shorted and he was wearing a large coat with a cape. His beard was also longer and he had a much more stern expression on his face. As he watched Garnet rise from the floor and talk to Diamond, Emerald noticed the cold tone in his voice, the tone sent a chill through his spine. Just then, Emerald saw Master Diamond turn towards him and begin to approach the Gem. As he was standing before Emerald, the Green Gem looked into the molten red eyes of his Gemian leader, feeling a rush of inferiority as he stared down to the Gem.

"Smaragdus, I can see that training is going well." Diamond said as he placed his hands behind his back.

"Garnetum has told me about how you have been training her, and I am happy to hear how things are going. Keep up the good work."

Emerald was caught off guard at the compliment. Stammering for a moment before he recomposed himself.

"Well Master, I did promise you didn't I?" Emerald said with a laugh as he rubbed the back of his head. "Once Garnet stops arguing with herself, progress should improve. But you were right, having Creator give her futurum visionem has been effective, despite the fact she is still very blunt and hot headed.

Diamond looked to Garnet and then back to Emerald. He then nodded.

"Noted." Diamond replied. "Now I need to speak with Topaz, after you are done training Garnetum, Return here with Howlite tomorrow. I will have something for you."

"Yes Master" Emerald replied as he saluted to the Gemian.

Diamond looked to Garnet and nodded before he walked away. As he left the courtyard. Emerald turned back to Garnet, who was armed with her gauntlets. The green Gem smiled as he summoned his sword.

"Alright…so how about this time, you *try* to lay a blo-"

The next thing Emerald knew, a large Gem fist was inches away from his face. As it was about to make contact, Emerald made a simple reply.

"Oh…"

[*]

Homeworld, Topaz's laboratory, present day

[*]

Topaz sighed as they put the finishing touches on a large combination of a crystal panel with several machines and wires attached to it. As they stood up, they picked up a large piece of metal and placed it onto the panel. Topaz then turned and walked over to a nearby panel and pressed several buttons. As they did, the panel began to hum loudly before a blue column shot from the panel. It stayed there for several seconds before it started to flicker and then dissipate. Topaz approached the now steaming panel and noticed that the metal piece was gone.

Topaz then smiled as they walked across the lab and through a door. As soon as they did, they were greeted by a light green gem. She had light yellow hair in the shape of a triangle and green metallic arms and legs. She was standing before another crystal panel, which was also steaming as a warped piece of hot metal was resting on the now warped panel. Topaz sighed as they turned to the green Gem.

"So what was the problem this time Peridot?" Topaz asked as they rubbed their eyes with their hands.

"Warp efficiency is still at 0.7%" Peridot explained as her finger formed into a small screen before her. "It seems that calibration is needed for the crystal attunement frequency as well as the pad identifier. In addition, the reorganization of molecular organization is a problem."

Topaz sighed as they picked up the warped metal and looked at it.

"Can it be done?" Topaz asked as they walked over to a table and looked at several blueprints that were spread on the table. "Perhaps we could synchronize the Vitae processor to apply the-"

Topaz stopped as they looked up to see Diamond at the door. Peridot also noticed this and snapped to attention, approaching the Old King.

"Hello Peridot." Diamond said with a smile as he patted her on the head. "I trust my sibling had been learning much from you?"

"Of course." Peridot said as she guided Diamond to the panel. "We are working on a new form of transportation for Gem-kind."

"It's called a warp pad." Topaz continued as they approached Diamond and hugged their brother. "If we can get this working, we could place and a planets and a Gem would be able to teleport just like how we do, without the need of those parchments."

"I see…" Diamond replied as he stroked his chin, looking at Peridot and then to Topaz . "…well this is incredible, and I am glad to see you are progressing well Topaz."

"To be honest Brother, I can't take all the credit." Topaz replied with a smile. "Your assistant Peridot was essential for this and so much more. The Gem is a natural with reverse engineering Metalian technology and manipulating it."

"I knew she would be helpful for you." Diamond replied with a smile as he approached Peridot. "However, while I can see you two are all doing well together, I will need Peridot back at Insidiae."

"Understood brother, I can handel it from here." Topaz replied as they crouched down beneath the warp pad and began to tinker with it. "However, I pray that whatever project you are working on, you at least remember to visit Rose too. She's been quite busy uplifting planets with Lapis and she misses you."

Topaz looked up to see that Diamond and Peridot were gone. Topaz sighed as they continued to work on the warp pad.

"…as do I." Topaz said with a sigh.

[*]

Homeworld, common chambers, present day

[*]

Diamond and Peridot walked through the crystal hallways of the homeworld city, passing by countless Gems and looking around at the buildings under construction. Peridot then looked to Diamond, who was looking ahead with a stern expression on his face, but as he looked to her, a small smile grew. Peridot then looked away as she blushed, unaware that a smile had appeared on her face as well.

[*]

As Diamond and Peridot entered one of the common chambers, Diamond turned towards the door and placed his hand on it, saying the command "Condixerant" as he pulled his hand away. As he heard the door lock before him. He sighed as he turned towards the main chamber. It was a small room, consisting of a large desk built for two, which Peridot was placing blueprints on. There was also a large window, complete with a balcony, and…*oh my*…a bed large enough for two…

Diamond sighed as he approached Peridot, who had finished organizing the blueprints on the table and turned to see the Old King standing before her.

"It has been some time now, hasn't it Peridot?" Diamond asked with a raised eyebrow as he crossed his arms. "For a moment there, I assumed you decided to cut your ties and become Topaz's assistant."

"Well…maybe I should…" Peridot said with a grin as she approached Diamond slowly. "They would be better at organizing all this data, plus working with all that Metalian technology is quite nostalgic."

"Perhaps then you should join them..." Diamond said with a smile as he began to stroke his chin. "It seems to me that they would be a better fit for you than this Old Gem ever would, wouldn't they?"

"True…" Peridot snorted as she was now face to face with Diamond. "…but if there's any Gem who is a better "fit" for me…it would be the one who knows me…inside and out."

"Is that Gem by any chance be…here? In this room?" Diamond asked as he gently placed his hands on Peridot's torso, looking right into the Green Gem's eyes. "This conveniently locked room that is only occupied by you and me? Complete with a conveniently placed bed?"

"I don't know…" Peridot replied with a sultry voice as she wrapped her arms around the back of Diamond's neck "…Care to find out?

Peridot pulled herself up to his face to place a heavy kiss onto his lips. After a few moments of extensive tongue wrestling with her lover, the green Gem then pulled away, leaving behind the stunned and flustered Gemian as she looked back towards the table with the notes.

"Are you coming Diamond?" Peridot asked Diamond as she looked to him and smiled.

"Oh…of course." Diamond gasped lightly as he shook his head back to reality as he approached Peridot and looked over the notes beside her. "What's the status on the army?"

"I went over some of Topaz's prototypes and was able to use them to make improvements on the Agate's design." Peridot explained as she moved her fingers into a square and created a hologram of a tall being with a triangular shaped body and a cylinder head with four eyes on each side and two long prongs on top. "Using designs from the old Metalian elemental cannons and our scrapped Abalone schematics, I have established new forms of flight and combat efficiency. I also went over the "incidents" with the light armies and crystal drones from the past few centuries and have established new methods of controlling them without any problems based on the Metalian controlling method. They will be able to obey your commands without question or objection, and we both know how they will be powered."

"Excellent." Diamond said as he looked towards the window. "What of Onychinos and the others, are they ready?"

"Yes they are." Peridot said as she looked to her screen, pressing a few buttons and pulling up new reports. "The indoctrination of Sunstone and Moonstone was a success, we didn't even need to use Ichor on them. They will be ready within the next few hours."

"Good." Diamond said as he crossed his arms over his chest. "Everything is falling into place then. Now to take care of one last detail…"

Diamond then reached into his pocket and pulled out a small stone. Clenching it in his hand, he dropped it onto the table, only for it to be red and pulsating. As it stopped rolling, he issued a command to it.

"Adamantibus ... Diamonds es tu fuerint ibi decem?"

As he finished, the stone shined a bright light. As the light faded, there stood three different Gems before Diamond and Peridot, one of them was a yellow color while the others were white and blue. These Gems were known as Yellow, White, and Blue Diamond respectfully, created by Master Diamond to help oversee the Crystal Empire. As they looked to the Master Diamond before them, they knelt to the floor and addressed him as such.

"Nos hic esse servire tibi magne creatorem Gemia primogenitum autem Crystalli Matrem et Salvatorem Universum huius. Sine quaestione et serviemus tibi neque seditionem neque faciem manus tuae dimissione, nec nostra."

"Rise, my Diamonds." Diamond commanded to his servants. "You have been effective in keeping everything in order for these past few centuries, but now we are ready to begin our mission."

The Diamonds looked to each other as they looked back to their Master with a hint of hesitation.

"I understand if you are concerned at what would happen should we fail, which is why Peridot is preparing the finishing touches on Project: New Genesis, a precautionary plan should this happen."

As Diamond finished, Peridot approached each of the Diamonds and handed them a small thin crystal. The Diamond looked to each other before they placed the crystals on their arms. As soon as they did, their eyes shined with green light as data began to upload into their minds.

"Those crystals are providing the details of your individual missions should the primary mission fail or should anything happen to me. You are to follow those orders to the letter. Peridot will assist with ensuring everything goes as planned, but you must follow these two commands."

"Of course Master." Yellow Diamond replied with a salute. "We will do whatever you wish."

"Good…" Diamond said as he looked towards the balcony once more. "Because the first command is this: Should anything happen to me that renders me unable to lead our empire, you three will take my place as the leaders of the Gems. You will then suppress all information regarding the origins of the Gem race, the existence of the Gemians, the Metalians and Tiberium, and even Gemia and Obsidian. You will silence all who know and erase everything you can find. Peridot of course will be the only exception to this rule…"

Diamond looked to Peridot and approached her, placing his hand on her face. As she grasped his hand and looked to him. The Old King smiled and continued to speak.

"…which leads me to my second command: Even though Peridot is your superior, to prevent suspicion of her motives and origin, she will play the role as a simple Gem servant to you three. However, keep in mind that regardless of this, she is and always be your superior and no harm shall come to her, regardless of the circumstances. Is this clear?"

"Yes Master!" The Diamonds saluted to their Master. "We will follow your orders as you see fit."

"Good." Diamond said as he continued to look down at Peridot, who blushed as she grabbed his robe. Diamond eyes widened as he looked to his Diamonds.

"Leave us!" Diamond commanded. "…and speak of this to no one!"

The Diamonds saluted as they vanished in a bright light. As soon as he was certain he and Peridot were alone, he let out a sigh as he looked back down to Peridot, who looked back up to him with a dark green blush and a tense expression on her face.

"Diamond…" Peridot whispered with a shutter as she gazed up to him "I…I need you…"

Diamond smiled as he took his hand and cupped Peridot's face, leaning down to embrace her with a kiss.

"Well then I believe we have a problem…" Diamond said as he broke away from his kiss, grinning at a surprised Peridot. He then scooped her up into his arms and carried her towards the bed and placed her on top of it. He then laid beside her and pulled her into his arms. "…because I believe my need for you is much stronger. Care to prove me wrong?"

Without hesitation, Peridot and Diamond embraced in a passionate kiss. The green Gem gasped as she felt Diamond's hands caress her small body. As she watched as Diamond broke from his kiss and remove his robe, revealing his bare body and torso, Peridot gasped as she saw the scars that covered his body. As she sat up and traced her hands across them, she looked to her own hands. In that instant, the triangle haired Gem felt warm tears begin to flow from her eyes as she looked up to Diamond, who was watching this with an expression of concern.

"Peridot…" Diamond said as he reached for his Gem lover. "Is everything all right? Was it something I did?"

Peridot looked to Diamond before she quickly turned away from him, quickly curling up into a ball on the bed and covering her face with her metal arms as she choked back her sobs.

“Why did you do all this to me?” Peridot sobbed. “I hurt you and your people, nearly drove them to extinction, and after all of that…you…you gave me a new life and even your love. Why?”

Diamond gave a warm smile and a sigh as he pulled Peridot closer to him. As she tried to look away, she felt Diamond’s hand wipe tears from her eyes. She then looked up to him and saw the warm smile on his face and the kind look in his silver eyes.

"Peridot…when we worked together on Insidiae, I knew you were special. I knew you were going to become more than a simple computer for a race of machines or a breakthrough in Gem technology, and after what happened with Rhyolite and Heliodor, that theory became a certainty."

Peridot watched as Diamond took her hand and placed it on his chest. Peridot let out a light gasp as she slowly traced her fingers on his scarred body.

"Why did you think I helped you with designing your body…with helping you expand your mind and personality? I did all of that because you wanted to become more than a machine. You became something greater than what Tiberium or even what I wanted. You became your own individual because you wanted to be one, and it was that desire for being your own Gem that caused me to fall in love with you, the real you, and be in love to this day and until the end of days."

Peridot sighed as he pulled herself in closer to Diamond and embrace him in another kiss, feeling the world around her shrink around her as she felt her fell back onto the bed. She then watched as Diamond removed the rest of his robe and threw it beside of the bed.

"Diamond…" Peridot said with a tearful smile as she grabbed Diamond's hand and clenched it. "…thank you."

"No matter what happens, one thing will be certain." Diamond said with a smile as he positioned himself before Peridot, ready to connect with her. "You have been and always will be my Universe."

Peridot gasped loudly as she felt Diamond enter her. The green Gem moaned as she felt the Old King begin to pump inside her, reminding her that there was nothing "old" about this king.

Diamond let out a light gasp as he pulled Peridot up towards him, kissing her vigorously as she continued to endure the sensations of his power. Peridot felt her body shake as the ecstasy from Diamond's weapon continued to pump inside her. Looking down towards her body. Peridot's eyes widened in shock as she could see a slight bulge moving up and down her abdomen. As she placed her hands on the moving mound, she looked up to Diamond with a shocked half smile.

"I can feel you…" Peridot said with a wavery tone. "…against my hand."

Diamond smiled as he began to kiss Peridot on her neck, clutching one of her small breasts as he began to nibble at her collarbone. As soon as she felt a bearded mouth trail down to her other breast, the Metalian Gem had already lost touch with reality, only to be brought back to reality with a sudden sensation of a hand upon the bud of her Gemhood. At this moment, Diamond felt the tight walls of his Gem lover clench as she grabbed his back.

"Wait!...Dam…unn!" Peridot slurred as she clung tighter to the Old King. Trying to focus as she felt her body was about to reach it's breaking point. "Dea..um…ei…um…cumond…Dea…plesss….leh..tuh..meee…cuh…"

"It's alright Peridot, you don't need to hold back anymore." Diamond said with a whisper as he leaned in to her ear. Peridot felt the warmth of Diamond's breath as he whispered a final command to his lover.

"Veni propter mecum!"

Peridot screamed loudly as she felt her body suddenly release with an overload of ecstasy. In that instant, she wrapped her body around Diamond and without thinking, bit into his shoulder. Diamond winced as he felt Peridot's teeth dig into his shoulder and her fingers carve his back like a rake in fresh soil. The mixed sensation of the pain from Peridot and the sensation of feeling her Gemhood clench around his and lather in in fluids sent him over the edge, releasing his own essence within Peridot. Exhausted, the two collapsed onto the bed, a mess of sweat, "essence" and blue blood. Peridot felt the world around her fade away as darkness took place, her last sight being the exhausted Diamond beside her.

With that though in mind, she found the darkness safe, she felt safe…

[*]

Unknown Location, present day

[*]

As Diamond looked around at his surrounding, he found himself in complete darkness with only the light of a green flame from a dark green lantern beside him. As he looked down at the ground, he saw that he was naked and sitting on what felt like bone. As he looked up, he was startled by the sight of a pitch black being standing above him. The being was twice Diamond's height and was featureless, save for a single molten eye that glared at the Old King. As it approached him, Diamond realized who it was and stood up, staring at the being before him.

"Obsidian, or deal is done." Diamond stated sternly as he pointed to the Leviathan. "The Metalians are gone and Tiberium has been banished, creating peace and balance in the Universe. You have done your part and now you will be gone."

"Ine sindinagwirizane nazo, ine dram lachoka mmalo mwake-msuwani wake." Obsidian hissed as it bent down towards Diamond. "Ngakhale kuti a Metalians yani chitapita, adafika komweko mukadali anthu za zinthu zowononga pa thambo la kumwamba. Amaopsezedwa ranker kuposa chilichonse gulu lankhondo 'ananena r Mukhoza kanthu kwa mulungu aliyense."

"Greater threats?" Diamond said as he looked to Obsidian with confusion. "The Universe has been saved by…us…the countless species are now free from terror and now will live in harmony. What is more dangerous than that?

Obsidian started to bellow a deep and hollow laugh. The sound caused Diamond to shutter as the Levithan moved behind him, placing its hands on Diamond's shoulders.

"Chimene chili chimene chimayambitsa chokha chokha komanso distruction sichiri icho chimene chikuopseza chilengedwe chonse..."

Obsidian clenched its hands on Diamond's shoulders, causing the Gemian to bleed dark blue blood onto the floor. Diamond looked down and saw a dark blue puddle forming beneath him, it was there that he saw his reflection, with Obsidian behind him.

"...koma timangoganizira chilengedwe chonse iyomwini."

Diamond was puzzled by what Obsidian had said, but as he continued to stare into the puddle, he saw his reflection was replaced by something else.

Diamond watched as several humanoid beings kidnapped a blue feline humanoid child and proceeded to beat him with tools, cut off his tail, sodomize him with a heated metal rod and then throw him into the streets of his suppressed city to die. He then saw a vision of a huge facility, where strange multicolored four-legged creatures were experimented on by similar creatures. The visons continued, each different than the last. A kingdom of machines and weapons laid waste to various kingdoms of strange shape and design. A man kidnapped an orphaned child and did unspeakable things to her while another trapped a being from another world into a life of suffering and pain.

As he turned away from these visons, Diamond found himself standing before a small doorway. As he approached the door, he felt a strange sense of loss as he reached for it. As he touched the knob, he suddenly found himself in a catacomb of some kind, as he looked towards the doorway, he could hear faint singing from the other side. Diamond then took a deep breath and open the door to see what was on the other side.

As he open the door and stepped inside, Diamond could see a simple room, a room that was dark with no windows and lights. The only light came from the open doorway with the silhouette of the Old King sprayed onto the floor. The walls where covered in green bloody writing that read the words "KULEPHERERATU," "WONONGA ZINTHU-MMWAMBA," "NDITHANDIZENI INE," and "AMALAKWITSA." In the center of the room was a tall pitch black figure on its knees. In its hands was a large triangular object, about the size of a head. The being had the head pressed up to its stomach and was rocking it slowly like a baby. Next to the figure was the headless torso of a Gem, lying in a pool of green blood with her chest ripped open and her limbs gone.

As Diamond looked to the body, he felt the blood rush away from his face as he saw the figure in the center of the room turn towards him, holding the head of Peridot in its arms.

"No…" Diamond gasped as he tried reached for the figure, but found himself unable to move.

"Musati muzidandaula Peridot!" The figure said as it held the head to its own, looking into the shallow dead eyes. "Munthu aliyense amalakwitsa zinthu nthawi zina."

As Diamond watched the spectacle before him in horror, he suddenly bent over and began to vomit. As he began to spat out black bile, he looked up and saw Peridot standing before him, only her eyes were black shot.

"Peridot?" Diamond said as he approached Peridot, only to feel a knife stab into his chest. Looking down at his wound, he saw that the one who stabbed him was Peridot. As he fell onto his knees and looked back up to her, Peridot had a warm smile on her face as she aimed one of her laser fingers at his head.

"Ine ndidzamangapo kuti nthawi zonse andikhululukire Kodi iwe." Peridot said warmly as she kissed Diamond on the forehead before shooting an energy bolt through it.

"NO!"

Diamond turned away from the vision and fell onto his knees, As Obsidian appeared beside Diamond, and it could hear the Old King sobbing.

"No…everything I have done…was it for nothing?" Diamond asked as he looked to Obsidian with tears flowing from his eyes. "Is this what will become of our Universe…of my Peridot?"

"Iwo ungakhoze, ndipo icho mudzatero..." Obsidian replied as it knelt beside Diamond. "...kupatula ngati kodi inu ndinu kulolera kuti chiyani mouziridwa ndi chimene ali nacho kuti chichitidwe."

Diamond looked to Obsidian and took a deep breath. He then looked at his hands and then back at the Leviathan. As he stood up, he closed his eyes and looked away.

"Popanda ifeyo, pa thambo la kumwamba chidzachuluka ikunyalanyaziratu chokha chokha." Obsidian hissed as it stood up and walked behind Diamond. "Kodi zimenezi n'zimene Kodi iwe ndikufuna chifukwa chako miyala yamtengo wapataliyi, chifukwa chako muzitengera mbale wanuyo, chifukwa...Peridot?"

Diamond clenched his fists as he thought about Peridot and as he looked to his hands, he knew what he had to do.

"I…I understand…" Diamond said as he turned to Obsidian, staring at the Leviathan with a molten red glare. "It has to be done, for the greater good of the Universe, I will do as you ask."

Obsidian began to laugh as it walked up to Diamond.

"Ndithudi Inu mukadzitengere." Obsidian hissed with a laugh, the laugh sounded like a mix of various laughs from multiple people, and continued to get louder and louder as Obsidian continued to speak. "Ndipo ndinakuika unali angathe kugonjetsa adani ako chifukwa chakuti ndinalola kuti icho, ndipo Kodi iwe adzanditumikira chifukwa chakuti ndimadzuka Mukudziweruzira icho."

Suddenly its head split open in to a vertical maw and bit down onto Diamond's face.

"AMAMVERA!"

Homeworld, common chambers, several hours later

[*]

Diamond shot up from the bed with a gasp as he looked around in shock. He saw that he was back in the common chamber that he was with Peridot, only that it was now nightfall. He then looked down and saw Peridot beside him, naked and asleep. It was uncommon for Gems to sleep, but Gemians recommended it for it allowed faster healing and regeneration of Vitae. As for Peridot and Diamond, it was common for them as a result of their "activities".

Diamond turned towards Peridot and stroked her hair. He studied her body as if laid on the bed, watching her barren chest rise and fall as Peridot slept.

"I cannot let anything happen to you." Diamond whispered. "I will not, and I will do everything I can to make this Universe our own…even if I have to…to…"

Diamond then felt his cheeks burn, as if boiling drops of water was trickling down them. Diamond touched his face and felt a burning liquid on his hand. Looking at it, he saw a black fluid on his hand. Recognizing it as Ichor, the essence of Obsidian. Diamond turned away toward the end of the bed and looked at his hand.

"Oh Gemia…my siblings…Peridot…" Diamond said as he felt more Obsidian tears roll down his face, the horror of what was to come coursing through his mind. "…please…please forgive me..."

Diamond curled up into his arms and began to weep softly, making sure he didn't wake up Peridot in the process.

Homeworld, Diamond training academy, several hours later

[*]

Emerald and Howlite were waiting at the academy, it was an hour ago that they were informed of a new member of the Diamond elite was to be trained by the two specially. But now an hour has passed and they were getting impatient.

"What's taking them so long?" Howlite complained as she threw a rock in the air and batted it away with her ax. "Is this some kind of joke?"

"Master Diamond gave us the order." Emerald said as he leaned on a pillar. "I don't think he's the one to joke around."

"Not unless you have triangular shaped hair and floating fingers." Howlite replied with a scoff. "I swear, unless you pray to the Diamond "idol" you're nothing more than a grunt."

"Howlite!" Emerald interjected as he approached his friend. "Don't speak of Master Diamond like that, remember that we're part of his elite, we also lead the Crystal Valor as warriors of TO."

"Yeah, but do you ever get the feeling that Peridot is…different." Howlite replied as she threw another rock at a pillar, breaking the stone into smaller rocks. "I mean, she's supposed to be investigating those disappearing Gems, and it seems like she's more interested in being a d-…"

Howlite paused as she and Emerald saw Diamond approaching them. They also saw a Dark grey Gem with a Gem on his left elbow alongside him, as they approached the two, Diamond looked right at Howlite with a intense glare.

"…-evoted follower of the house of DI." Howlite said with a nervous chuckle. "There's nothing better than a prime example of a true follower to the Tribunal."

Diamond raised an eyebrow as he approached Emerald. As he walked away from Howlite, the light Grey Gem sighed as she wiped her brow with the fur of her armor.

"Smaragdus, I have a new recruit for you." Diamond said as he turned and gestured to the Gem beside him. "This is Hematite, he will be assisting you from now on. Teach him everything you would and let me know when you do."

"Understood Master." Emerald saluted as he watched Diamond walk away, but not before looking back to Howlite.

"A word of advice: keep your thoughts to yourself." Diamond stated coldly. "A large maw like yours tends to make it easier for one to choke."

With that, Diamond vanished into thin air. Leaving behind a nervous Howlite. She turned to see Hematite, standing next to Emerald, who face was puffed up and his cheeks were dark green, he then exploded into laughter as he fell onto his back.

"S-shut up!" Howlite shouted with a dark grey blush. "I said shut up!"

"I'm sorry Howlite." Emerald said between gasps as he stood up and wiped tears from his eyes. "But that was almost as funny as when Master Rose threw up on Master Diamond. This was priceless"

"Pardon my intrusion, but I would expect someone of your caliber to be of a higher respect to our Masters." Hematite interjected. "They did stop the Metalians and bring peace to the Universe. So they should not be seen as clowns."

"I know. I know." Emerald said with a sigh. "So…you're here to join our crew, right?"

"Yes Master." Hematite said as he stood upward. "I am here to show my worth to the Crystal Valor and the Diamond Elite."

"Easy there Hematite, no need for the formalities friend." Emerald said as he patted Hematite on the back. "First rule of the Valor: no formalities. It makes it easier to fight."

"…Okay…" Hematite said awkwardly as he walked around the courtyard. "So what now."

"Now I'm going to see what you're made of." Emerald said as he walked into the courtyard and began to stretch. "We're going to duel and you will show me what you know."

"I should inform you Master that I was taught by Master Diamond himself." Hematite explained. "I would suggest you have Howlite assist you though."

"I don't need it." Emerald said as he continued to stretch. "I'm a Secundo, a Gem creation of Master Topaz. I won't need the help."

"Doesn't that seems a bit arrogant, Master Emerald?" Hematite said as he gave a look of concern. "You have no idea what I am capable of."

"It's not arrogance Hematite, its ambition. I mean, Master Topaz must have a favorite Secundo, and I will prove that I am that Secundo!"

"With all due respect Master, I find that strategy unlikely. I have gone over your records and you have proven time and time again that you cannot even defeat one opponent without the help of Howlite. However, there is no shame in that."

"Do you see Moonstone asking for help, or Sunstone, or Onyx?" Emerald asked as he brandished his sword "I will prove that I am the best, and I know just how to prove it by defeating you."

Hematite looked at Emerald for a moment and then smiled, he then clenched his fists and positioned himself in a combat position.

"If you are challenging me to a duel, then I will at least go easy on you." Hematite said with a grin. "We both won't use our weapons."

"Fine…" Emerald said as he dissipated his sword and entered a fighting stance as well. "…but there will be a day when we will face each other with full force, and I hope you will expect to fall to the floor many times."

"If you say so Master…" Hematite scoffed "…if you say so."

"Now then…" Emerald said with a grin as he put his fist up. "How about you amuse me with your futile attacks? Put Master Diamond's teachings where your mouth is. "

"With pleasure, Master Emerald" Hematite said confidently as he charged.

"This'll be so fun." Howlite thought sarcastically as she yawned in boredom. "I hope at least one of them gets killed, it would be a nice change of pace."

Within an instant, the two Gems, aware that they would become great brothers in arms, to one day fight together with weapon on hand and potentials reached, charged.

"Keep those defense up!" Topaz commanded as they paced around the Gems arming an array of turrets. "We cannot let them get into firing range."
Topaz gazed with a look of concern as they could see the large battalion of Metalian ships continue to approach the colony, several of the small ships were shot down by the Gem's defenses, but Topaz knew that it would not hold forever. As Topaz clenched their fists, they noticed Rose approaching them.
"Is Copper safe?" Topaz asked Rose as they helped a Gem arm one of the turrets and fire it.
"Yes, he is in the vault, just as you instructed." Rose explained. "Only one of us can open it so no on-"

Happy Belated Birthday EMM

It has come to my attention that EMM is now a year old (as of last Febuary).

:iconawyeahplz:

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:

(Fun fact: I was banned three days after this pic was made.)

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.:

Chapter 4: A Game of Gems and Metal

{*}

Gem Colony Insidiae, exterior defense line, present day

{*}

"Keep those defense up!" Topaz commanded as they paced around the Gems arming an array of turrets. "We cannot let them get into firing range."

Topaz gazed with a look of concern as they could see the large battalion of Metalian ships continue to approach the colony, several of the small ships were shot down by the Gem's defenses, but Topaz knew that it would not hold forever. As Topaz clenched their fists, they noticed Rose approaching them.

"Is Copper safe?" Topaz asked Rose as they helped a Gem arm one of the turrets and fire it.

"Yes, he is in the vault, just as you instructed." Rose explained. "Only one of us can open it so no on-"

Just then, a bolt of energy shot one of the turrets on the line and destroyed it. Topaz picked up the Gem that rolled onto their feet and gave a concerned scowl.

"Where is Diamond?" the Taskmaster asked their sister. "Did he return with his "secret weapon" yet? We're getting slaughtered."

"There is no sign of him." Rose replied as she heard the explosion of another ship. "But don't worry, he'll come back for us. You'll see."

Topaz nodded lightly as they looked back to the incoming ships, noticing that one of them emerge from one of the larger ships, this vessel had a round cap shaped bow and was charging right at the colony, directly towards the defense line.

"Uh…Topaz…" Rose questioned her sibling nervously. "Does that ship seem to be heading right towards us?"

As the Gem turrets fired at it, the bolts simply deflected the attacks as it began to pick up in speed.

"MOVE!" Topaz shouted as they grabbed Rose and jumped off the balcony behind the defense line.

Within moments after the Gemians jumped off the balcony, the ship shot through the defense line like a bullet, crashing into the courtyard of the colony. The explosion from the attack knocked Topaz and Rose back, with onto a wall and onto the floor. As Rose tried to get back up, the ceiling above her and Topaz began to creak and then cave in on top of the Gemians.

Buried under tons of metal and rock, Rose felt her body immobilized as she felt a sharp pang in her torso. Looking down, she saw a large piece of shrapnel stuck in her body. She then turned to see Topaz, unconscious and wounded, golden blood pouring from their head as they were wedged between a large block of stone. As she felt herself falling out of consciousness, she reached for her sibling, her strength failing and the world around her falling dark.

"Diamond…" Rose muttered as she fell silent. "…p-ple..."

Gem Colony Insidiae, courtyard ruins, several hours later

{*}

"... vel að halda að leita síðan! Að það leiðinni til að vera hingað!"

Rose heard the sound of voices around her along with the sound of the rubble around her moving around. As Rose felt fresh air hit her face, she opened her eyes slightly to see a blurry golden figure before her, it bent down to her and placed its hand on her neck, moving around her head before it stood up and turned around.

"Sem ég finnur þau á!" the figure shouted as a light grey colored figure approached the gold figure and poke Rose with a large object, it felt like a block of sourts. "Sem hún hefur særðir og en hinn er meðvitundarlaus."

As Rose's vison began to clear, she saw that the figures before here were both Metalians, one was wearing a gold colored armor and was holding a gold colored gun, the other was light grey and had a pistol in his hand. The Gold Metalian then looked to Rose and smiled.

"Segðu frá Tiberium því að við höfum ekki að sem finnast Diamond, En þegar sem aðrir hafa ekki að opnaður þessi læsingu enn sem komið er, þá eru þessir Tveggja ættu að vita hvernig þú getur." The light grey Metalian said as he waved his hand and two Metalians approached, one was large and dark grey, the other was tall and slender, his armor was red and seemed to be flowing. "Gæta skal þessara tveggja við hvelfinguna og skulu bíđa mín til að að eignast aðra."

The Metalians nodded as they approached Topaz and lifted them off the ground and hauled them away. Rose tried to reach for her sibling with her arm but she was too weak and she felt her arm fall short. She then heard the Metalians laughing at her, followed by a drop of burning metal burn her cheek as the red Metalian spit on her.

"Við the upplýsingaöflun! This einn hefur enn að neista á förunautum hennar." The dark grey Metalian said as he grabbed Rose by the hair and lifted her up, the little Gemian screaming in pain as her scalp burned with pain, the Metal rangers laughing as they heard her whimper in pain. As the dark grey Metalian released her head and grabbed her arms to hold her up, the light grey Metalian approached Rose and placed his hands behind his back.

"My comrades can't understand you're guttural language, but I have been modifying myself for just the occasion." The Metalian said as he continued to grin at his captive. "Now my name is Tin and I am a captain of this crew of Metalians before you. Now you are going to help us enter that little vault you have inside the base. But before we do so, you have tell me and my friends here where Diamond is."

Rose glared at Tin and spat blood in his face. The Metalian signed as he then grabbed the piece of shrapnel in Rose's side and ripped it out. The Gemian screamed as blood began to pour down her robe and dropped down on the floor. Tin examined the shrapnel and licked it before he looked back to Rose and placed the tip of the metal shard to her Gem. Rose stopped and looked to Tin with a look of horror.

"Oh no no no! You shouldn't be so upset about this…" Tin said with a grin as he pressed lightly into the Gem on Rose. "…this Pain is the body's way of expressing joy and becoming one with metal. I have turned so many organic Vitae drinkers into…perfect Metal. Take the traitor Copper for example…he was just a waste of cells and flesh before I fixed him…such a waste."

He then looked to Rose and lifted his hand, plunging it into the bleeding wound in Rose's side, causing the Gem to scream and vomit. As she did, Tin laughed as ripped his hand out of Rose and slapped her in the face. Grabbing her jaw with said hand and aiming the shrapnel blade inches away from Rose's eye.

"Manners! You little skítur!" Tin said with an expression mixed between a grin and a glare of rage. "I can fix you! Make you perfect, just like us! But you need to tell me where your brother is!"

As Rose glared at Tin, the Metalian lowered the blade and turned away from the Gemian and raised his hand.

"Barði hana!" Tin shouted as the Red and Gold Metalians began to punch Rose, eventually, he snapped his fingers and the two stopped, Tin then approached Rose and was about to ask her again, but not before noticing a lone tear run down his victim's face, healing it as it traveled. Tin then took his finger and swiped the tear away. Looking at it, he saw the tear begin to warp his finger, turning it from a light grey metal into a dark blue finger. Tin gaped in horror before he grabbed the finger and ripped the digit off, throwing it at Rose and grabbing her hair to look her in the eye.

"YOU DIRTY CREATURE!" Tin screamed as he looked right in her eyes and held the shrapnel blade to her neck. "YOU DARE TRY TO POISON ME WITH THIS….DIRTINESS! I NEED TO PERFECT YOU! I NEED TO SEE WHAT'S INSIDE!"

"Obscenus…vilis…" Rose said weakly, knowing that, even at this moment, she would at least go out as a fighter, just like Diamond would have wan-

"ROSE!"

Suddenly, there was the sound of thunder as the ground behind the Metalians rumbled and a flash of light shot out. As Tin, Rose and his solders turned towards the light, they saw a figure before them. Rose recognized the Grey beard, long nose and blue armor as her brother Diamond, gazing upon his foes with molten red eyes.

"Finally! He's here!" Tin clapped with glee as he gestured to his solders. "OPNA Eldsvoði!"

The Metalians summoned their weapons and opened fire on the Old King as smoke surrounded the Gemian and his attackers. As the Metalians approached the cloud, Tin turned his attention back to Rose.

"Well that takes care of him, doesn't it?" Tin said to Rose. "You see, this is why you need to be perfect! You will fail as this, I can make you better. Commander says I can do whatever I want to you and your sibling once Diamond is dead!"

As he looked to Rose, he saw her looking up and smiling, he then looked up to the Metalian holding her up and saw him gape with horror as he dropped Rose and run away. As Tin turned to where Rose and the Metalian were looking, he saw a blur jump above him and tackle the large Metalian and punch him, ripping the weapon from his hands and shooting him point blank in the head. Tin looked back and saw the Gold and Red Metalians on the ground, their cores ripped out and broken beside them.

"G-Gold…Mercury…?" Tin stammered as he turned back to see Diamond standing in front of him. Tin yelped as he fell over onto the ground.

"No…No no no!" Tin said as he began to crawl away from Diamond, who began to walk up to him. "I can't fail! I never fail! I can-can't fail! I need…I need to make you perfect! You need me!"

Diamond bent down and grabbed Tin by the neck and picked him up. As he lifted him into the air, he looked to Rose, wounded from the torture Tin had made her endure and then back at Tin.

"She needed this Diamond!" Tin explained as he pulled out his pistol and shot Diamond in the face. The Metalian watched in horror as the bolts of energy simply fell off the Old King's skin, not even piercing it. Diamond then slammed Tin to the wall and grabbed his pistol. Pulling it away and looking at it, he saw the Gem attached to the side, a grey oval Gem and showed it to Tin.

"Oh yes! Some of your kind are too imperfect…to disgusting to fix." Tin explained as he grabbed Diamonds arm. "Tin can fix though…help make us perfect."

Diamond crushed the pistol in his hand and held the Gem in his hand. He then tossed it to the ground and called to it.

"Howlite, est mihi!"

In that instant, Howlite emerged from the Gem, wearing a large armored coat and a gauntlet on her right hand. She looked around and saw the wounded Rose and rushed beside her. As she helped the Lion up, she looked back to see Diamond, who looked back to her with a molten red glare. Such a sight gave a feeling of uneasiness in the Gem, though she did not know why.

"Master Diamond?" Howlite said as she supported Rose. "You're here!"

"Howlite, take Rose to the command center on the other side of the colony." Diamond ordered as he looked back to Tin. "Inform Smaragdus and Solemlapidem to engage the Bladeguard protocol. It should buy enough time."

Howlite nodded, somewhat confused at Diamond's labeling of Emerald and Sunstone in Gemian, as she began to help Rose away, but not before Diamond noticed her looking back with a gaze of concern. As Diamond looked to her, she closed her eyes and summoned Lion beside her.

"Diamond be careful." Rose said with concern. "Tiberium is using an Intelligence of some kind to control the Metalians. Destroy it and the Metalians will fall."

"Understood." Diamond said as he looked back to Tin. "And don't worry about Topaz, I have already sent someone else take care of that. Someone more…personal to them."

As Rose and Howlite got onto lion and left towards the command center, Diamond turned back to Tin and scowled at him.

"I try to help but there are always mistakes." Tin gasped "I try to make them perfect, but they always have made mistakes!"

"I do not make mistakes…" Diamond hissed as his jaw began to split. "…I erase them."

Gem Colony Insidiae, Inner Vault, present day

{*}

As Topaz was dragged into the chamber, they saw several Metalians with large drills tried to drill through the door before them, a huge metal door with a small socket on the side. Overseeing them was a large Metalian wearing a shiny metal armor and had a metal band around his eyes. He turned and saw Topaz being dragged and tossed before him, a Metalian placed their hands behind their back and cuffed them with special cuffs. As soon as they were locked in place, Topaz fell significantly weaker.

"Vei! Húsbóndi Topaz! Hvað okkur skemmtilega á óvart!" The Metalian said as he crouched before Topaz. "Forgive me, my name is Silver, and would you prefer that I speak to you in your tongue?"

Topaz looked up to the Metalian and smiled before replying to him.

"Fara ríða sjálfan þig!"

The Metalian smiled before he rapidly punched Topaz in the stomach, causing the Taskmaster to bend over and cough.

"How about you use that smart mouth to open that door for us?" Silver asked as he pointed to the vault. "See, you have a comrade of ours in there and we need to have him erased for treason."

"So…you're only here to kill him." Topaz coughed as they looked up to Silver. "What about you're precious Intelligence?"

Silver scowled as he kicked Topaz in the face, grabbing them by the hair and holding their head up.

"What do you know about the Intelligence?"

Topaz smiled at Silver, looking at him with one eye.

"Everything." Topaz explained. "Copper told me everything. About how it is the reason your kind is so powerful and skilled, how without its guidance, you all are as dumb as dirt."

Silver twitched as he punched Topaz in the face. As the Taskmaster fell to the ground, Silver grabbed them by their armor and held them back up. Topaz could see that by his expression, and the expression of the Metalians around them, that the Intelligence was a touchy subject for them.

"Enough!" Silver hissed to his captive. "You will open the door NOW!"

Or what?" Topaz asked with a grin. "If you kill me, you lose the ability to open the door, and I am sure that the other Gemian to know so is probably dead, so you have nothing."

"Don't we?" Silver said as he scanned Topaz's body. "Perhaps we should then uncover another secret then."

Topaz's grin faded as they knew what he meant by that. As they struggled in objection, they felt Silver summon a metal blade and aim it at the Taskmaster's armor.

"You are unique in your…"nature"." Silver said to the Taskmaster. "Perhaps we should find out why."

Topaz tried to kick Silver away, only to feel their legs get pinned down by the Metalian's body as he got on top of the Gemian.

"St-Stop!" Topaz shouted as they tried to push Silver off, only to feel the cuffs holding their arms drain more Vitae from the Gemian. "I'll…I'll open the door."

"I know you will…" Silver said with a laugh. "You will as soon as I see what makes you ti-"

Silver stopped as a green blur passed before Silver, as the Metalian looked up, the metal band around his eyes broke off. As he stood up and looked to his solders, he felt his vision begin to blur with a silver colored blur, followed by the sensation as the world around him begin to divide horizontally from the center. The other Metalians watched on shock as the top of Silver's head fell to the floor, with his body falling to the opposite side.

"What the?" A Metalian said as he suddenly found himself pinned to the wall, with an orange double bladed sword pinned in his chest. The Metalian next to him felt his body swell as he then felt the Humor in his body suddenly shoot from his chest, causing him to convulse before he was sliced in half by a scythe.

As Topaz sat up, they saw the other Metalians look towards the entrance of the chamber with horror. Topaz then turned to see four Gems standing at the door. They recognized them as their Secundos: Emerald, Sunstone, Moonstone, and Lapis Lazuli. As they turned back to the Metalians, they felt the cuffs on their arms break off and they then stood up, summoning their lance.

"Sorry for the delay creator." Emerald said with a smile. "We had to liberate a few Gems on the way."

"Oh! So now it's "we", Mr. "One man army"?" Sunstone teased as he picked up a stray Metalian arm and poked him with it.

As Topaz watched Emerald grab Sunstone in a head lock and give him a noogie, they sighed and rubbed their eyes, as they looked up, they saw Lapis approach them.

"Creator, Master Diamond has returned." Lapis explained. "He is rescuing Master Quartz and is planning to siege the main Metalian ship. He asked us to take you to the command center on the other side of the colony and activate the Bladeguard protocol."

Topaz nodded as they looked back to the vault and Metalians before it, who were on their knees and begging for mercy.

"Dicentes quid faciemus illis?" Moonstone asked as she walked behind one and held her scythe in her hands. "Possemus usus plures captivos."

"Silver told me that they consider those like Copper traitors." Topaz explained as they walked out the chamber. "Let's provide these solder with kindness."

As Topaz left the chamber, they heard the screams of Metalians, the first of many to feel the rekindled wraith of the Gemians.

{*}

Metalian fleet, Tvashtar Paterae hangar, present day

{*}

The hangar of the Tvashtar Paterae was filled with a large group of Metalians, armed with their weapons as they prepared to send another wave onto the colony. As they approached one of the vessels ready to launch, the Metalian known as Iron stood before them, prepared to lead the final assault against the enemy.

"Við skulum enda þessu einu sinni og fyrir öllum förunautum!" Iron shouted to his solders. "Sem Gemians höfum á verið veikt, og út eins og særðir dýrsins, munum við vera byssukúla til að setja þessa frábæru skepnu sundurliðaðar til góðs."

Just as they were about to launch, a portal opened up before the army and the body of Tin shot out of it. His neck had a large section torn out and his core was missing from his chest, which had a large hole in it. As the Metalians watched the body slide up to them, they looked up to see Diamond exit the portal, his hands were soaked in grey blood as he summoned his mace.

"Á varðbergi yfirmaður í Tiberium!" shouted Iron as the Metalians armed their weapons at the Gemian intruder. "Að tilkynna honum um að Diamond hefur brotið þá skip! Eins og fyrir hvíla af þér, að fyrirfara honum!"

The Metalians opened fire on the Gemian, engulfing him in a cloud of smoke.

"Að halda eldsvoða þínum!" Iron commanded as he raised his hand, halting his solder's gunfire to allow the smoke to clear. As it did, he saw, to his and his solder's horror, the Old King standing tall, his body was unscathed from the attack as he took several deep breaths. As soon as he composed himself. He looked up to the small army and glared at them with molten red eyes.

"My turn."

{*}

Metalian fleet, Tvashtar Paterae bridge, present day

{*}

Diamond walked down the corridors of the Tvashtar Paterae until he wasstanding before the door of the bridge to the Metalian ship, looking back to the bodies of Metalians behind him as he then looked back to the door. As he examined the door, noticing the symbol on the front, he could sense the energy behind it. He could sense the energy of a Gemian, the black sheep of Gemia known as Tiberium, but he could sense was another energy as well. It was Gemian, but it was different, almost like one of Topaz's Secundos.

Diamond moved back a few steps, summoned his mace, and charged into the door, creating a large dent in the center. Diamond then dissipated his mace and plunged his hands into the dent, bending the metal further and allowing him to push the door open. As Diamond entered the bridge, he looked around at his surroundings. As he looked through the window, he could see the entirety of the Insidiae colony. Surprised as such a sight, he approached the control panel and looked over the many buttons and levers. Never in his whole life before the Metalians did he even fathom such technology.

As he was about to press a button, he noticed the floor behind him emit a bright green circle in the center. As Diamond approached it, the circle on the floor opened up and a small green orb the size of a small melon emerged from the floor. The orb was metallic green in color and had a light green triangular gem in the center. Four green cylinders orbited around the orb as well as five light green sticks which strangely looked like fingers. As the orb turned towards Diamond, the Gem in the center emitted a light green fan shaped light that scanned the Gemian, causing the Old King to flinch in surprise.

"[Identity confirmed.]" The orb spoke. "[Identity: Diamond the Old King…Classification: Gemian Leader…Founder of the Crystal Tribunal…Protector of the Universe…Status: Enemy of the Metalian Army…Current status: Intruder…Action: Engage security measures.]"

Diamond watched as a yellow column of energy surrounded him. As he looked around and then towards the orb, he looked closer at it, especially the green triangle Gem attached to the front, and at that moment, he recognized what it was.

"You…you are the Intelligence!" Diamond exclaimed to the orb. "You are what controls the Metalians"

"It's not just a controller of the Metalians, Diamond…" a voice explained to the Old King. "…but rather, it *is* the Metalians."

Diamond watched as a familiar Gemians walked into view, Diamond recognized the green face and uniform as Tiberium, the leader of the Metalians and the one responsible for this war.

"Tiberium…" Diamond gritted at the Green Gemian.

"Hello…"brother…" Tiberium replied as he approached Diamond's prison. "It's been awhile, hasn't it?"

"Remove this shield, and I will give you a proper answer." Diamond replied back, summoning his mace in the progress."

Tiberium chuckled as he circled the shield surrounding Diamond, watching the Gemian inside glare right back at him.

"Always the hot head, right down to those empty words." Tiberium exclaimed as he continued to walk around his brother's cell. "Now the last time I heard something that hostile was…when was that?"

Tiberium turned away from Diamond and placed his hand on his chin to ponder. As he did, he raised his other hand and the shield around Diamond dissipated. Diamond quickly pounced at Tiberium, only to be grabbed by a large green metallic crystal arm. Diamond struggled as he saw that the arm belonged to Tiberium, whose body was soon covered in a large armor of the same metallic crystal.

"Ah yes! Now I remember." Tiberium exclaimed as he slammed Diamond into the wall, slowly crushing him under his hand. "When you banished me to the ends of the Universe. All because you though that I was going to be evil. Well look around you Diamond, have I done what you wanted me to do?"

With his other hand, Tiberium shaped it into a large block shape and began to slam Diamond with it.

*THUMP*

"AM…"

*THUMP*

"…I…"

*THUMP*

"…EVIL…"

*THUMP*

"…ENOUGH?"

*THUMP*

Tiberium then stopped and threw Diamond onto the floor, as he approached the Gemian, he stood above him and turned his hand into a blade, aiming it at Diamond's neck.

"You know, I should thank you actually." Tiberium hissed as he bent down to Diamond. "Thanks to you, I have a nigh unstoppable army, and once I have your Gems, I will be unstoppable. How humorous that all of this is your fault?"

Just then, the whole ship shook violently as there was a faint rumble, shaking around the Gemians.

"What's happening?" Tiberium shouted to the Intelligence.

[We have received damage from a large beam of energy.]" The Intelligence replied as it summoned a screen with its fingers. "[It appears that the source of the attack is the same source that is wiping out the fleet…so far ninety percent of the fleet has been eradicated.]"

"What?" Tiberium shouted as he approached the intelligence. "Why aren't we retaliating? Why is my fleet being destroyed so easily?"

"[We have decided to retract our connection from the Metalians and it has resulted in a loss of total combat precognition.]" The Intelligence explained.

"WHAT?" Tiberium shouted to the Intelligence. "YOU LITTLE CANICULA! YOU BETRAYED ME!"

The next thing Tiberium knew, he was smashed in the face by a large mace, as he tumbled into a wall, he saw Diamond standing before him, fully healed and looking down upon him with molten red eyes.

"Wha…those eyes…." Tiberium stammered as he felt his armor break apart. "You…have something…wha-wh…what are you?"

Diamond approached Tiberium and summoned a piece of shrapnel, it was coated in the blood of another Gemian, and it looked as if it was just removed. Diamond looked at it as he stabbed Tiberium in the shoulder, he then clenched his hand as he fused it to the wall behind Tiberium as well as into his arm. Tiberium screamed in pain as Diamond knelt down and grabbed his face.

"Now "brother", you know that pain is the body's way of expressing joy and becoming one with metal, do you not?"

Tiberium watched as a pod rose from the ground, both Diamond and the Intelligence watched as the ship began to turn away from the Gem colony and towards the vast stars. As it did, a large voice bellowed from the ship

"[ATTENTION…SELF DESTRUCT SEQUENCE ENGAGED…HYPER LAUNCE SEQUENCE ENGAGED…PLEASE EVCUATE FROM THE SHIP IMMIDENTLY…ESTIMATED MELTDOWN…ONE MINUTE THIRTY SECONDS…ESTIMATED HYPER LAUNCH…ONE MINUTE]"

"Diamond!" Tiberium shouted as he tried to pull himself free, the metal in his arm holding him back. "Please have mercy! I'll…I'll surrender fully! Please!"

Diamond ignored Tiberium's pleas as he and the Intelligence entered the pod. As it lowered, Diamond could hear the sounds of his evil brother screaming his name in rage and fear.

It was the most beautiful sound he ever heard.

As the pod launched from the ship. Diamond watched as the Tvashtar Paterae shot into the vast space like a missile, disappearing into the stars. Although it was uncertain the fate of Tiberium, Diamond knew that at long last, the war was finally over.

{*}

Gem colony Insidiae, command center, present day

{*}

Rose, Topaz, Howlite and the Secundos watched as the large Metalian ship vanished above them. As they looked to the Metalians, they simply toppled over and shut down.

"We did it…" Emerald said to the others before looking to Howlite. "…we won."

All the Gems looked to each other before there was a up roaring cheer from the entirety of the Gems. All across the colony, Gems and Gemians shouted in joy over the victory in the eons of war they endured. At long last, the age of the Metal Rangers was over, and now it was the age of the Crystal Gems.

{*}

Gem Colony Insidiae, Inner Vault, present day

Copper felt the door open and saw a figure approach him. As his eyes adjusted to the light, he recognized him as Diamond, with the Intelligence alongside him.

"I figured you defeated them." Copper said as he stood up, taking a deep breath as he was ready for his fate. "I figured it as soon as I felt somewhat dumber. So…let's get this over with."

"Don't be so hasty to die yet, Copper." Diamond replied to the Metalian. "I was informed that you were once organic, and the Intelligence told me that I can reverse the process and return you to your original form."

Copper looked with skepticism at the Gemian before he looked to the Intelligence and then back to Diamond.

"Wait…why would you do that?" Copper asked. "I though you would just kill me and be done with it."

"True, but you willingly provided information for us and…" Diamond hesitated before he continued. "I feel…pity for you."

"So I can be organic again?" Copper asked with hope. "Will I go back to my planet too?"

"Under one condition." Diamond replied with a extended finger. "You will tell *no one* about your heritage. Not. A. Soul. If you do, I will personally kill you. Is that clear?"

Copper nodded, knowing that the Gemian that single-handedly wiped out his race was not joking.

{*}

Gem Colony Insidiae, courtyard, present day

Diamond entered the courtyard as Topaz and Rose were there, the latter of the two ran over to the Old King and hugged him tightly.

"I knew you could do it Dimy!" Rose exclaimed with a smile. "We won! We Won!"

"Yes we did Rose…" Diamond said as he turned towards the ruins around him. "…but now we have a new task at hand. With the war over, we will now begin to expand and establish a new order to reconstruct and protect this Universe."

Rose's eyes beamed with stars as she cheered Diamond on, but Topaz on the other hand, was a little suspicious with Diamond's ideals.

"And how would we do that?" Topaz asked with arms crossed. "What would we need to do to establish a proper rule within this Universe?"

Diamond looked to his sibling and gave them a cold glare as he replied with a single word.

"Rule."

Diamond then turned back and began to walk away. As soon as he was sure that he was alone, he sighed in relief that the war was finally over, but his attention was drawn to his responses to Topaz and Rose, they seemed almost…fanatical.

Suddenly, Diamond felt a burning trickle roll down his left eye, as he wiped it, he saw a black fluid smeared on his hand. Shocked at the sight, he quickly wiped the fluid it onto the wall, seeing his reflection as well. Diamond could see black fluid trickling from his black shot eyes as well as the molten red irises. As he examined his features, he suddenly felt a sense of terror and loss at the realization of why this was happening…and who was responsible. Diamond slumped to the floor and covered his face with his hands to weep, for it was at this moment he realized that the nightmare was not over...

…it had just begun.

In the centuries that followed the Metalian war, the Gems expanded into a vast and powerful force within the known Universe. With the technology left behind by their fallen foes. The Gemians were able to mold their once small group of protectors into a mighty empire, with newly engineered tools, ships and machines to expand their protection to the Universe. Upon Master Diamond's recommendation, the planet that the Gemians were born upon was recolonized into the primary homeworld for the Gem species and to serve as the crown jewel for a new order of Universal protection.

Chapter 3: A Voyage to Targos

{*}

Gem Colony Insidiae, ten hours later

{*}

Diamond stormed down the hallways of the colony as he approached the holding cells. As he did, he heard the call of another Gemian approaching him.

"Diamond!" Topaz called out as they approached Diamond, only for the Old King to turn away and continue walking. "Diamond!"

"Leave me alone Topaz." Diamond said he continued to walk. "I need to speak with out "guest"."

As Diamond approached the door to the holding cells, he was stopped by Topaz who rushed before him and blocked the door. Diamond glared at his sibling, who glared right back.

"Stand aside Topaz." Diamond commanded his sibling. "That Metalian may be the only thing that could win us the war."

"Not before you answer a few questions first." Topaz said as they pointed their finger at Diamond. "The first being how do you know the Metalian's leader?"

"I don't have time for this." Diamond growled. "Get out of my way before I throw you out."

"You were responsible for all of this, weren't you?" Topaz shouted at Diamond. "What did you do to piss off the Metalians?"

"I…I did nothing." Diamond said as he grabbed Topaz's shoulders and tried to push him aside, only for the Taskmaster to use the doorway to brace themselves. "What happened does not matter now, we need to focus on the future."

Diamond suddenly felt his body fall back as a fist made contact with his face. As Diamond tried to get up, he felt the tip of a lance aimed at his face and saw Topaz over him, an expression of anger over his face, as he was the one holding it.

"How can we do that with a leader that single handedly ruined ours?" Topaz shouted as they moved the lance closer to Diamond. "Part of me wonders even if you are working with this Tiberium."

Diamond pushed the lance aside and stood up to Topaz, the two of them were face to face.

"How dare you call me a traitor you…you…"

"You what?" Topaz said as they clenched their fist. "Come one now, say it!"

Diamond paused before he looked Topaz in the eye and replied to his command.

"Tabula rasa!" Diamond shouted at Topaz, who responded with punching Diamond again, only for the Old King to grab their fist and punch them right back. As Topaz fell to the wall and held themselves up, they summoned their lance and swiped it at Diamond. The Old Gemian responded to this by summoning his mace and swinging it at his sibling, bashing them in the side and sending them toppling onto the ground. Diamond stood over Topaz, his mace stained with yellow blood. Topaz looked up to Diamond with a bloody smile.

"How typical of you brother, resorting to violence to suppress those who rebel from your orders. You are Metalian material after all."

"SHUT UP!" Diamond screamed at Topaz as he raised his mace and swung it down at Topaz. "I SAID SHUT UP!"

"DIAMOND STOP!"

The next moments felt as if time had slowed down for the two Gemians, as a third Gemian ran between the two siblings and summoned her shield to block the attack, only for the mace of the Old King to break right through it.

The next moments were even slower, as shards of a rose-colored shield fell onto the floor, followed by drops of dark-pink blood and then the body of the Gemian known as Rose Quartz. As she fell to the floor, Topaz quickly moved over to their sister. She was unconscious and blood was pouring from her head. Topaz watched as Diamond dropped his mace and slump onto the floor, his face was pale and blank with shock as he looked to his bloody hands.

"Wh-wha…what have I done…...I…didn't…what…did…I…?" Diamond muttered as he felt the world around him fall dark.

{*}

Gem Colony Insidiae, Gemian Quarters, two hours later

{*}

Topaz sat next to Rose as she was within a bed. She was unresponsive and he head was bandanged up. Topaz held her hand as they watched her lay motionless in the bed. Topaz then noticed Diamond enter the room and stand at the end of the bed.

"How is she?" Diamond asked Topaz.

"She is unconscious, but stable." Topaz replied with a sigh. "I've been checking up on her every half hour, and so far, she is still like this."

Diamond turned away from the two as he leaned on the end of the bed.

"He was born shortly after Rose was."

Topaz looked at Diamond in confusion before they realize who they were referring to.

"Tiberium?" Topaz asked.

Diamond nodded. "After Gemia dissipated, he formed from the remnants of the negative energy that resulted from her battle with Obsidian."

"So is that why he's attacking us?" Topaz asked as they stood up and walked up to the balcony, looking out to the rest of the colony. "Because it's in his nature."

"I believe so." Diamond said as he walked up next to Topaz. "But you were right, the reason for this war was because of me."

Topaz looked to Diamond and bit his lip in guilt. "Diamond, I'm sorry for blaming you in the first place. I'm just scared and I wasn't thinking."

"But you we're correct nonetheless." Diamond continued to explain. "I encountered Tiberium shortly after we began exploring the Universe. However, I knew his origins and I feared he would corrupt out purpose, so I banished him from this Universe. I never suspected that…"

Diamond quickly clenched his fists and punched the wall next to him. Topaz shot back at this sight he watched Diamond pull his fist from the wall and look at it.

"I told her…our sister…I told her that I would be the cause of our demise." Diamond said as he looked to Topaz with tears began to run down his face. "I never thought that I would harm either of you or even…"

"Diamond…" Topaz approached Diamond, watching as the Strongest of the Gemians fall apart before them. Diamond placed his hands on her face as he fell to the floor. Topaz quickly grabbed the Gemian and embraced him in a hug.

"I'm sorry Topaz." Diamond sobbed to his sibling. "I'm sorry for everything."

"I know." Topaz said to their brother. "And I'm sorry for my behavior too."

As Topaz helped Diamond up the two of them walked back to Rose's bed and sat on both sides of it. As Diamond moved a loose hair from Rose's head back into place, he noticed a single tear begin to form in Rose's closed eye. As he was about to wipe it, he remembered something.

"Topaz!" Diamond exclaimed to his sibling. "Get me a vial, hurry!"

"Of course, but why do you need one?" Topaz quickly summoned a vial and handed it to Diamond.

"Because of her tears you morionem." Diamond reminded his sibling as he collected a single tear. "They have healing properties."

Topaz's eyes lit up as they saw the vial with the single teardrop within. As the two siblings looked at each other, Topaz gently began to remove Rose's bandages and Diamond held the vial over her wound. As soon as Topaz exposed the gash, Diamond poured the teardrop onto Rose's wound. After several seconds of thinking it was hopeless, the Gemians noticed the gash on Rose's head fading away until it was gone completely. Suddenly, Diamond and Topaz heard Rose groaning slightly as the two quickly bent down and looked at her with concerned expressions.

Rose slowly opened her eyes to the sight of two anxious smile right in her face, causing the young Gem to jump back and yelp in surprise.

"Topaz…Diamond….?" Rose said to her sibling in confusion. "What happened?"

Diamond and Topaz then stood up, with Topaz leaping over Rose's bed and hugging Rose, who hugged her sibling The Taskmaster cheered and cried in relief that their sister, who was both confused at what was going on, was safe and sound.

As Diamond watched his siblings embrace each other in hugs, he was happy for his sister's recovery, but the thoughts still echoed in his head wondering if this would be worth it when Tiberium arrive? Even with Insidiae's defenses and an army of Gems, there was not a single entity in the Universe that could destroy his leviathan of an army.

At that moment, Diamond came to the conclusion that for the Gems and the Universe, they would need a Leviathan of their own…and he knew exactly where to find him.

{*}

Gem Colony Insidiae, courtyard, two hours later

{*}

Rose stepped down from her room to see Diamond, who was sitting on a bench as Emerald was standing before him. By then look on their faces, it was not good news.

"…they will be here in a matter of a few days." Emerald explained to the Old King. "We will be able to hold them off for some time, but by the size of the fleet…it is clear this will be the last fight."

"I see..." Diamond said as he looked away for a moment. "Did the Metalians claim Targos yet?"

"Of course not, it's a barren world. They wouldn't have any use for it." Emerald replied to Diamond. "But what is so important about that planet?"

Diamond turned to face Emerald, only to see Rose peering from behind a bush.

"Go to Topaz and inform him of your findings." Diamond commanded Emerald, who nodded as he left the courtyard. Diamond then stood up and approached his sister, pretending to be oblivious to her spying until he was right next to the bush. Diamond then waved his hand at the plant and all the leaves fell off, revealing the hiding little Gemian.

"A true Gemian does not spy on private matters Rose." Diamond sighed as he picked up Rose and carried her to the bench and sat her on it. He then sat next to her. "Why were you spying on me?"

"Because I want to help, but no one will let me." Rose sighed. "I'm not a child you know. I know that this battle might be out last and if it is, then I'm going down swinging."

"I...I know." Diamond said as he rubbed his hands together. "I'm afraid we are almost out of options. I…I'm sorry for-"

Diamond felt Rose move his head towards him as she kissed his forehead. As the Old King looked to his sister, he felt a pang of guilt flow into his body.

"No more apologies Dimy." Rose said with a smile. "I can tell that you don't mean a lot of things. You're my brother, and just like Topaz, I will always forgive you, no matter what. I promised you, didn't I?"

Diamond smiled as he hugged his sister. He then looked up to the star lit sky and sighed lightly, he felt the conflict in what he was going to do…and who he was going to meet. But given the situation, it seemed that he had no other option.

"Rose, I need you to tell Topaz an important message for me." Diamond said as he broke the hug and put Rose on the ground before him. "Can you do that for me?"

"Of course I can." Rose said with a sigh. "Just because you bashed my head open, does not mean I can't remember a simple message."

"…of course." Diamond said softly as he bent down to Rose. "I want you to tell them that I'm going to get something that will win us the war. I will return quickly, but you must promise me not to fight until you are absolutely sure you have to."

"I promise Diamond." Rose said with a grin. "I know you would think of something. Just promise that you'll be back in time. I can't take all the credit for winning the war."

"I will, and thank you Rose." Diamond said with a smile as he hugged Rose one last time. "Now get going, and remember: don't fight unless you have too, this colony's defenses should protect you until I return."

"Got it!" Rose said as she ran off. "Good luck Dimy."

Diamond waved his hand as Rose ran off. As soon as he was sure she was gone, Diamond sighed as he summoned a stone key in his hand. It was a small stone with a symbol engraved into it. It was a six pronged star between a divided square.

[*]

Diamond looked around to make sure that no one was around before he placed the stone to his chest and began to recite a chant.

"Ineyo Daimondi monga uja, mu Chipangano ndi Mfumu, umo tizindikira kupempha kuti munthu omvetsera awa pamodzi ndi inuyo. Levithan cha Malongosoledwe. Ndinali ndikufunseni inu, inde ndipo adakulamulirani inu chiyani, chingatithandize."

And with that, Diamond vanished into thin air.

Planet Targos, present day

{*}

Diamond teleported onto the surface of the barren planet. As he looked to his surroundings, he saw barren rock as far as the eye could see. Eventually, Diamond began to walk in a direction. It felt like hours as he traveled the barren wasteland of this planet in a seemingly pointless direction. But he knew where he was going. Thousands of years ago, the Obsianas Genus, a cult of rogue Gems that worshiped an ancient entity from an age long ago, had resided on this planet. Upon discovery of the cult, Diamond and his elite had hunted them down and wiped out their followers and shrines, to this day, only one shrine remains, and in a sense of cruel irony, Diamond would half to ask help from the very cult he tried to exterminate.

Diamond continued to walk for hours, the sky above him was a bright orange as black clouds swirled through the air like ghosts. Diamond looked around and saw barren rock and petrified bones scattered across the barren surface of the planet in every direction. As Diamond continued to walk, he heard a crunch under his foot, he stopped and looked down at what he stepped on, and seeing beneath his foot was a dull rock in the shape of a gemstone. Diamond frowned as he looked back up, seeing thousands of the same kinds of rock scatter before a massive canyon. As the old king peered across the canyon, he could see a large cave in the side of the canyon side across from him, Diamond sighed as he walked up to the cliff and jumped off, as he began to fall he utter a single word, "Natavitque!", and he began to levitate in midair, he then looked around and saw the cave a few feet below him. As he slowly descended into the mouth of the canyon, he looked at the dark cave before him before looking back at the sky behind him.

"It's going to be okay my siblings." Diamond said to himself. "I'll fix this…I hope."

Diamond extended his hand and uttered another word, "Lucem Solarem Ibi!" and a ball of light formed in his hand and levitated next to him. He took a deep breath as he began to walk into the cave, with the wind from outside making the cave howl as if something evil resided inside.

Gem Colony Insidiae, Command Center, four hours later

{*}

The room was much bigger than the command center on the Samer Colony, not to mention is was built with Metalian technology. Topaz and several Gems prepared the defenses and scrambled the Gems to prepare for the worst. As Topaz looked to a hologram of the colony what resided in the center of the room, they saw a large group of red triangles approached the colony hologram. It did not take an exemplar of knowledge to know what that meant. As Topaz approached the hologram, Sunstone and Moonstone appeared behind him.

"Everything's all set creator." Sunstone explained as he rubbed the back of his head. "I mean, we know nothing about this…technology, but apparently Master Diamond had apparently left notes to help."

"What of the shields?" Topaz asked as they looked at a control panel.

"Quod ad plenam potestatem creator." Moonstone replied with a sigh. "Miserunt nos quoque Howlite Lapis and Emerald organizationis et Gemmae obtrudere fieri potest iubeat."

"Good, after they are done, bring Emerald and Lapis to me." Topaz said as they turned to their Secundos with a smile. "If we fall here, we'll fall together."

"Don't have to tell us twice." Emerald said as he and Lapis entered the room. "I actually was expecting to be here when I save all of you from the Metalians."

"Sure…" Lapis scoffed as she looked away from Emerald. "You can kill ninety of them, and let the remaining ten escape...until we take care of them for you."

Emerald lightly punched Lapis in the arm as she pulled back in defense while Sunstone and Moonstone laughed with him. Lapis then joined in as Topaz watched their Secundos with a smile. Unaware that Rose was standing next to him.

"Remember when we were younger and I considered Gems as tools?" Topaz asked Rose while looking at their children. "It took four of them for me to understand why Diamond cares for them so much. In some cases, I consider him much more compassionate about life than you are."

"Of course he is." Rose replied with her arms crossed, looking at the ring on her finger. "He is willing to do anything to preserve the life in this Universe, especially the life of these Gems. That's why he beat you bloody for what you did. I'm glad that he was able to beat some sense into you."

Topaz lightly chuckled as they looked at the ring on their finger, which matched the one that Rose and Diamond had made ages ago from the stone that their brother beat them with. Topaz, Rose and the Secundos suddenly noticed the grey Gem named Howlite walk in the room with a green metal box in her hand and a pale expression on her face.

"Is everything alright?" Emerald asked as he walked over to Howlite.

"I have a message from Commander Tiberium." Howlite replied to the Gems as she placed the box on the table in the center of the room. "You need to respond to it now."

As Emerald helped Howlite to a chair, Topaz took the box and looked at it. They then noticed a small green dot on the side and pressed it. The box then began to levitate and spin rapidly. Suddenly, it began to glow a bright green color and begin to take the shape of a green figure. After a few seconds, the figure shaped into the image of Tiberium, the Commander of the Metalian army.

"Hello brethren." Tiberium greeted softly with a warm smile. "I am Tiberium, the leader of the Metalians, and I have an important message for you. Is Diamond with you by any chance?"

"He's not here." Rose replied as she walked up to the hologram. "Right now, he's on his way to getting the key to beating you into powder."

"Such hostility." Tiberium commented with a sigh. "Is that any way to treat your own brother?"

"You are no brother to any of us." Topaz replied to the Gemian. "A Gemian would not try to wipe out their own kind."

"According to your brother, I am no Gemian or brother to you." Tiberium explained as he stroked his chin. "He banished me to the ends of the Universe because I was not like all of you."

"But why are you doing this?" Rose asked Tiberium. "What you are doing is only proving Diamond was right about you."

"He wanted me to be evil, so I will give him what he wants." Tiberium said as he turned away and looked around at the room around him. "Regardless, he will be dead, but not before I force him to watch you two suffer to your last breath, followed by every single creature he cares about, and when all of the Universe is under my control, then I will end his life."

Topaz scoffed as they crossed their arms. "Since we are doomed anyway, would you explain to me how you managed to acquire this army? As a last request."

Tiberium smiled as he approached the Gemian and looked into his face.

"I suppose that would be fair, given your demise." Tiberium said as he walked over to a chair and sat down. "When Diamond banished me, I floated alone in the Universe for eons, eventually I discovered a race known by many as Gas Giants. In their possession was a powerful intelligence that controlled a massive army of the most technologically advanced race known to any race. After using my power to obtain trust with the Giant's leaders, I manipulated them into declaring civil war on each other. Once they destroyed their empire, I picked off the survivors and took the intelligence myself. However, with all their power, they had one massive flaw: They needed a constant supply of Humor to function. While the original concept of acquiring Humor was to simply harvest planets, I discovered that Gems were essentially an unlimited supply of Vitae, which the Metalians could convert into Humor. With that in mind, I realized that I could control an unstoppable army and use it to return to Diamond and extract my vengeance against him, and once he is gone, I could have an army of unstoppable solders to conquer the universe and beyond."

Topaz and Rose looked to each other with concern as Tiberium continued his rant.

"But since Diamond is not here, I guess I will settle for the very Gems he wanted to protect." Tiberium grinned as he placed his hand on his chest and bowed slightly. "Valeant my siblings, I will send my condolences to your coward of a brother, when I throw your heads before his feet."

With that, the hologram reverted into a cube, and the second it touched the ground, it began to glow brightly and shake violently. Rose quickly waved her hand and summoned a bubble around the cube. As soon as she did, there was a large rumble and the inside of the shield turned bright orange. Rose strained as she held the shield to contain the explosion. As soon as the rumbling stopped, Rose released the bubble and it dissipated, releasing black smoke into the air. Topaz quickly extended their hand and sucked the black smoke into their fist. Clenching it and wincing as they did so. As they opened their hand, Rose saw her siblings hand was burnt and falling apart. Rose quickly rushed over to them and quickly began to release tears onto Topaz's hand, which quickly healed the wounds. As Topaz looked to Rose with gratitude, there was a sudden rumbling from outside. In that instant, a Gem rushed into the room and stood before Rose and Topaz.

"Masters, the Metalians are attacking." The Gem explained as he pointed to the hologram in the center of the room. "The shields and cannons outside are holding off the ships, but they will not last forever."

"Do what you can." Topaz ordered the Gem. "We need to hold until Diamond returns."

Topaz looked to Rose who nodded in agreement, but as soon as Topaz moved away to talk to their Secundos. Rose looked down to the floor with a look of worry on her face.

"Diamond…" Rose said to herself. "Please hurry."

{*}

Planet Targos, Cave interior, present day

{*}

Diamond walked through the darkness of the cave, the ball of light beside him was the only companion through all of this. It was hours since he first entered the cave and it seemed as there was no point on going further.

"Come on now." Diamond said to himself. "I know you're still here."

Suddenly, Diamond heard the sound of movement in the shadows. In that instant, Diamond stopped moving and summoned his mace. Moving the light around him saw a carving on the wall. As he moved closer to investigate it, he saw it was the carving of a six pronged star between a divided square.

[*]

As Diamond examined the etching, he noticed a small square gap under the carving. Pulling out the stone key from his pocket, he placed it into the gap and pressed on it. Suddenly, there was a humming sound as the walls of the cave suddenly began to light up with blue light, lighting up to a stone doorway with the same symbol as the carving.

As Diamond sighed in relief, he suddenly felt a presence behind him. Diamond quickly turned to see a deformed face screaming at him. Diamond jumped back in repulsion before he swung his mace at the creature, only for it to jump back into the darkness. Diamond then felt his back hit the floor as the creature tackled him. Diamond used his mace to hold back the abomination as it squealed at him and tied to bit him with its teeth. As he threw his assailant off him, Diamond then took his ball of light and threw it into one of the blue lights, causing the entirety of the hallway to burst into a bright light blue. Diamond heard a high pitched squeal as he looked to see a deformed but humanoid creature withering on the floor, clawing up its body with its nails as he stared at the Gemian with its one working eye.

"Burning me! Need to bleed! Need to bleed!" The creature squealed at Diamond as it tore of a chink of its skin and threw at it the Gemian. "Shut! Shut! Shut! Shut! Shut!"

"Enough of this, I need to see your leader." Diamond commanded as he looked to the door. "I'll leave you to your "friends."

As soon as he approached the door, he heard more squealing from the darkness as several more creatures, some more deformed than the wounded one, approached their wounded brethren, their skin burning from the light, they squealed loudly as they quickly ganged up on the wounded creature and began to beat, cut, and fondle it. Diamond watched the spectacle with disgust as they began to violate and torture the creature in ways indescribable to fathom. Eventually, the creatures began to rip apart the wounded one and began to eat and have sex with its organs and limbs before they began to attack each other to do the same. As one of them fell before Diamond and looked up at him, Diamond saw the cracked dull Gem on its forehead.

"To think that you once believed in order." Diamond said with a pitiful tone to the Gem creature as he entered the large door. The creature squealed as it felt a long object suddenly stab it from behind.

{*}

Planet Targos, Temple of Obsidian, present day

Diamond entered the chamber to see the sight before him. There was a large black statue in the center of the chamber. It was in the shape of a large humanoid with a large molten red eye. Four columns surrounded the stature with chains attached to the arms. Before the statue were three dark-gold pedestals, the pedestal in the center had a spear shaped object on it as the two outer pedestals has two buttons on them. As Diamond approached the statue, he felt doubt enter his mind as he looked up to the statue's eye. Just then, he felt the presence of another behind him and he quickly summoned hi mace and turned around, aiming it at another creature. This one however, was wearing a tattered robe resembling a sort of priest uniform and he has the symbol of the door and carving branded into his face. As he approached Diamond, the Old King noticed he was missing an arm and was using a cane made from an arm bone. As he approached Diamond and looked at his face and then his Gem, the creature hissed and backed away.

"You! Rapist of our beliefs! You are not welcome here! Leave now!" The priest shouted at him

"Or what?" Diamond asked as he approached the priest and aimed his mace. "Keep in mind that the only reason you are alive is because I thought you were dead, and I will have no problem with fixing this mistake."

"But if you do, then what of your people?' The Priest asked as he started to walk around the Gemian. "How will you defeat the Metal warriors without…him?"

Diamond looked to the Priest with a surprised expression. "How do you know of that?" Diamond asked the priest, who snapped his fingers.

"The Master knows many things." The Priest explained as he walked over to a table with a moving cloth over it. "He is a God, a being of great power. We know that through our workings with him."

As he removed the cloth, Diamond was startled at what he saw, there was a creature bound to a table, it was female in shape but it carried no face, just a small hole around where her mouth should be. As the priest approached the creature, he removed his robes and stood next to it. Holding a knife in his hands. Diamond then noticed that the creature's belly was swollen and moving as well, a clear sign that it was pregnant.

"I…I need his help." Diamond asked with hesitation as he watched the priest place one of his hands between the bound creature's legs, causing her to shutter violently. "Wi-Without Obsidian, our people will lose the war…I…I need him to win."

"I see..." The priest said as he licked the belly of the creature before him. "The Master knew you were coming, which is why he has a proposition for you."

Diamond watched as the priest began to gently slice the creatures belly like a ham and began to eat them, causing the creature to shake even harder as it thrusted her body on the table. Diamond knew that if it could, it would be screaming.

"What does…he want?" Diamond asked with a deep breath.

The priest smiled as he began to slice one of the creature's breasts off. "If you manage to free the Master, then he will help you bring order and peace to the Universe. He has seen the evil in your Universe and wants to help you erase it. All you have to do is free him, isn't that a great deal?"

Diamond looked to the statue as he approached the pedestals, as he looked back to the priest, he now was thrusting the knife into the crotch of the bound creature as he was biting the cut where her breast was. As he looked back and slowly placed his hands over the two outer pedestals. As he was about to place his hands on the pedestals, he pulled his hands away and turned away.

"No…this is…there has to be a catch…Gemia wouldn't have sealed him away if he wanted order…would she?" Diamond said as he looked to the priest. "No...I can't…I-I won't…I'll find another way!"

"If that is what you wish." The priest replied as he pulled out his bloody knife. "But I am sure you and your siblings have a better plan on hand. You can defeat the Metalians on your own, just as you have on Samer."

Diamond looked to the priest as he began to stab the creature's belly and rip out several small screaming creatures, as he cut the cords and dropped them on the floor, Diamond looked at the "face" of the now dead creature and suddenly, he saw Rose in her place. As Diamond stepped back in horror, he bumped into the pedestals and turned around towards them. Looking up at the statue of Obsidian.

"He…he will help me protect the Universe?" Diamond asked the priest. "He wants to help me protect it?"

"Of course, the Master is a God of his word." The priest said as he approached the Old King. "As long as you are your own."

Diamond looked down to the pedestals and placed his hands over them once more. In the back of his mind, he knew that this would not end pleasantly for him, but at the moment, he had to risk it. For the Universe, the Gems, and his siblings.

As he placed his hands over the outer pedestals, his palms inches away from contact, he closed his eyes as he began to speak a incantation.

"Ndinali silinatsaleko ulesi ndi munthu amadana kwambiri f'r zowoneka mwachinsinsi atawona zochuluka anthu ambiri."

"Tsopano Sindidamsokeretse silinatsaleko anabwera kuti akhale kumayenda chidani chimene f'r zimenezi kukhalapo."

"Tigaye n'kukhala chikhalidwe cha chikhomo chimenecho makhalidwe abwino a, chilungamo ndipo Sindidamsokeretse waziwona, Sindidamsokeretse kum'chitira kaduka zimenezi kuchita chiwerewere ndiponso mukufuna zimasintha."

"Chiwola pamodzi ndi repulsion, Sindidamsokeretse adzaimba nyimbo chilengedwechi chizindikiro chomwe nyimbo yatsopano ku Ndikaganizira zomwe zachitika pamwamba pa chawo kukhala zodetsa nkhaŵa cholengedwa."

"Koma kodi n'zosathekadi moonadi ndi ine chimene ife ndiko kukhala m'chilengedwe chonse kunyoza Mulungu?"

"F'r Sindidamsokeretse nadzakhalitsa m'chilengedwe chonse patsamba pamoto ndipo mu woyaka moto m'kuunika Sindidamsokeretse ndidzalemba Dzina wanga nyimbo yoyamba ndiponso ndidzakudziwitsani ndikumverera kutentha kwa wanga ndi mphamvu."

"Musabise maso ako wa Kumwamba, mwa mabodza a cha ziphuphu."

"Ndikukhulupirira mkati mwanga."

"Kuchepetsa kupanikizikako wako kukayikira."

"F'r Sindidamsokeretse adzathetsa m'chilengedwe chonse usiku uno."

"Kwambiri ndi zimenezi kwambiri kunyansidwa f'r zowoneka mwachinsinsi atawona zochuluka anthu ambiri."

"Tsopano Sindidamsokeretse silinatsaleko anabwera, kuti ndikhale kumayenda ali nangumi, f'r lapansi, m'chilengedwe chonse kunyoza Mulungu."

"Ndinali adzathetsa m'chilengedwe chonse usiku uno."

Shedding a tear over the fear of what would come from this choice.

"Siblings…Rose…." Diamond whispered silently as he dropped his hands down. "…ignosce mihi…"

As Diamond placed his hands on the pedestals, two spikes impaled his hands. Diamond shouted in pain as tried to pull his hands free, only to hear a clicking noise from the center pedestal. In that instant, the spear object shot forward and impaled Diamond in the chest. Diamond coughed up blue blood as he felt the spear stab deeper, stabbing itself into his heart. Diamond gasped as he looked up to the statue of Obsidian, which began to seem to soften, almost as if it was turning into a liquid. As he watched the statue transform, he suddenly heard a voice speak to him inside his head.

"Ndiwe adzakhala grant'd wanga ndi mphamvu chifukwa chakuti ndinali walola…"

Suddenly, the chains on the statue broke off as the statue bent down over Diamond, grabbing his face with its hands. It was at this moment that Diamond realiazed that the statue before him was the essence of Obsidian himself.

…ndiponso kubweranso kwa iwe uli mudzatumikira ndi ine chifukwa chakuti ndinali hest icho!"

In that instant, Obsidian forced open Diamond's mouth and began to slide down his throat, Diamond gagged as he felt the Leviathan flow into him, his throat and stomach burned as it flowed into his body. As soon as the entirety of Obsidian was within the Old King, the spear in Diamond's chest and the spikes in his hands retracted and Diamond fell to the ground. As the Gemian struggled to get up, vomiting up black bile, he looked up to the priest, who smiled as he crouched down towards him.

"Congratulations Diamond! You have become the new host for the Master." The Priest said with a grin as he looked down at the Gemian beneath him. "I hope your choice is worth the price."

Suddenly, Diamond grabbed the priest by the neck and pulled him towards him. The Priest watched as Diamond's jaw split open from the middle and a long sharp Proboscis emerged from his mouth.

"So beautiful…" the priest said as he looked to Diamond with a grin. "…Thank you."

Diamond hissed as he plunged his tongue into the priest's neck, draining him of the Vitae in his body before snapping his neck and dropping him to the floor. As he stood up and looked around the temple. He took a deep breath as he looked to his hands. Diamond left the temple and walk through the cave. As he did, he could feel the power inside him. He felt his strength had become even greater as he approached the mouth of the cave.

Upon approaching the mouth to the canyon, Diamond walked back and rushed forward, jumping from the cave mouth all the way to the top of the opposing canyon side. As he looked back to the cave below, he aimed his hand at it and clenched his fist. In that instant, he heard and felt the ground below him shake as he saw the cave collapse. He then looked up and saw the ground beyond the canyon begin to cave in as well. As Diamond heard the squeals of the creatures inside being crushed to death from the cave in. Diamond looked up to the sky with a new sense of power and purpose.

"You can kill my Gems Tiberium, but you cannot kill me. Your time as the scourge of this Universe has come and gone. I am order, I am the Master, I. am. Obsidian."

And with that, Diamond vanished into thin air.

Unknown Jungle Planet, several million years later

It was quiet on the jungle planet. Save for the sound of the animals chirping and bleating in the trees, it was as quiet as a grave. Suddenly, the silence was broken by the sound of a roar from the sky as a large ship began to descend onto the planet. It was colored light green and round in shape. The ship extended three legs from the bottom as it landed on the surface of the planet, knocking down trees and scaring away large sections of the animals that resided among them. As the ship came to a halt, the bottom of the titanic vessel opened, and a beam shot out onto the ground beneath it. Just then, five large beings emerged from the vessel. They were wearing large suits of armor of various color and shade and carried several weapons with them. These beings were known to many species at the Metali

"Keep those defense up!" Topaz commanded as they paced around the Gems arming an array of turrets. "We cannot let them get into firing range."
Topaz gazed with a look of concern as they could see the large battalion of Metalian ships continue to approach the colony, several of the small ships were shot down by the Gem's defenses, but Topaz knew that it would not hold forever. As Topaz clenched their fists, they noticed Rose approaching them.
"Is Copper safe?" Topaz asked Rose as they helped a Gem arm one of the turrets and fire it.
"Yes, he is in the vault, just as you instructed." Rose explained. "Only one of us can open it so no on-"
Just then, a bolt of energy shot one of the turrets on the line and destroyed it. Topaz picked up the Gem that rolled onto their feet and gave a conc

It has come to my attention that EMM is now a year old (as of last Febuary).

:iconawyeahplz:

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:

(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...

Scraps

From then on, this continued for three solid months. Resulting in a variety of responses from outright hatred:
Wanted by ScrapstheFool

To downright mockery:

But after a long period of annoyance, the pic was finally conceived:

(Fun fact: I was banned three days after this pic was made.)

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.:

:iconcleverun:
:iconcrazyspaced:
:iconhikumirin: 
:icondeitydeviantwarrior:
:iconpunkpanda15:
:icontrollface-mastah:
:iconacenos:
:iconshortsista:
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...

July's Steven Bomb (Whew boy!)

Finallly....freedom! True freedom!

Now let's look at the promo for the new Steven Bomb and....

Ead by ScrapstheFool
...shit.

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:

tumblr mq89z6pNKE1rke8ufo1 1280 by ScrapstheFool
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. ???

13. PROFIT!

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.

EMM THE COMIC: BREAKING NEWS!

For a while now, :iconcleverun: and I have been working on a comic interpretation of Everyone Makes Mistakes, which is a well-known fanfic by some in the SU community as being rather..."alarming".

As you probably read, the story is accurate to the fanfic, as well as a little tune-up here and there, courtesy of :iconcleverun:.

Now you are probably thinking: "But Uncle Scraps, does this mean that the grim-dark moments and scary scenes that you have been known for will be toned down by :iconcleverun:?"

I have already discussed this with :iconcleverun: and she has already shown me previews of the latest p-pages.

So I can tell you personally that: No, they will not be toned down...


...instead...they will be TONED UP!

Yes you heard me. The scenes in the fanfiction will be like the children's Bible in comparison to what :iconcleverun: has cooking up for the comic.

Which brings up another question: Is it possible for the creator of one of the most twisted fanfic series in the SU fandom to actually fear the creation of a collaborator?

Ead by ScrapstheFool

...perhaps...

So brace yourselves my comrades, for what I did in EMM: The Fanfic will be small potatoes compared to EMM: The comic. AND I MEAN SMALL FUCKING POTATOES!

I will work on Pink and White as soon as I find time to.

But I have a chuck of chapter three done already, so be patent, it'll be worth the weight.
