BECAUSE WHO NEEDS SLEEP. Okay so! What we have so far - Three (possibly more) 'flawed' Pearls who have suddenly decided that the slave life is not for them (maybe inspired by the tales of Rose Quartz's 'mad' Pearl trickling back from Earth?) and decide to skaddle with whatever they can carry and maybe abscond with a (not very) reluctant Citrine for actual piloting skills. May involve navel-gazing, Mad Max references, and inordinate amounts of distant screaming from the geology nerd section. HAVE AT THEE, PEOPLE! The brainstorming starts here :D Spoiler: for my own gemsona rambles General bits about what Gemsonas I have - Citrine is technically a Quartz on the same quality as Rose and Amethyst, so she could be destined for great things if she could stop nearly flunking basic training. She runs off and hides a lot, and reads - what kind of a soldier likes reading, anyways? Especially a Quartz. She's a bit defective but strives hard to hide it, and only really voices her thoughts when she thinks she's alone... or technically alone. That's where Haematite comes in. When I first came up with her, I thought she was a single gem, but now after the Answer she's actually two smaller Haematites semi-permafused, Head Gem and Wrist Gem. Their job was once to act as a Bracer for a Kindergarden - literally shoring up and holding in place common earth so more delicate Gems weren't crushed by the seeding drills as they grew. They weren't very good at it. There was a rockslide, and one of out of the three haematite gems were shattered. Other more important gems were broken as well, and as punishment the two survivors have to stand day in and out, holding the heavy hangar bay doors open. Wrist Gem thinks they deserve it, but Head gem is sick of it. It was Head Gem who started paying attention when Citrine would come and hide by them.
