Time to begin another Lea story! This one won't follow the show, instead will follow the canon that I make up. Sorry if you don't like that. Also, the only ship will be subtle Stevonnie. So yeah.
Lea: Why do you do this?
NM: Hey! Be grateful that this isn't my manga's canon, which is far more evil
Lea: (Groan) your brain is both heaven and hell
NM: That should be obvious, you were made by it
I really am sorry about my other stories, but when the writer's block hits then what can you do?
I looked around.
Where am I?
All I could see was the infinite void of space with a few stars lighting the darkness.
I remembered an intense pain. I wrapped my arms around my stomach.
Did I die?
I slowly lifted the black tank top I was wearing to find a startling sight. My body was covered in blood, scratches, and bruises. I saw torn flesh where skin should be covering my stomach. I felt like vomiting on the spot.
I can see a blurred object...a car I think...I pushed my friend out of the way and took the hit...it tore me open…
So I did die.
What kind of afterlife is this? Some sick joke? Or is this hell? Have I been eternally damned?
"No, it's nothing like that." I heard a voice say. I quickly turned around but couldn't see anyone.
"Who said that?!" I asked. I saw something pink flash out of the corner of my eye.
"I did." The voice said. I turned to the right to see an impossible sight. What the hell did cartoon characters have to do with me dying?
I must be dreaming.
"Nope, there's no such thing as sleep here. Just the stars and planets."
"Can I ask what happened and what a dead fictional character has to do with me dying?"
"Oh good! You know who I am, which means we can get straight to the point!" She said.
"Yeah, I know who you are, but you're not real." She laughed.
"I'm as real as you are, just in another place." I stared at her with a confused look on my face. "I'll explain, we live in planes of existence known as dimensions. You live in a dimension where magic is simply fiction, however, I live in one where magic is as common as rain." She paused.
"The fact that you can come here means that you're the one who can help us."
"Um...what." She sighed.
"I figured that you wouldn't remember." I was becoming even more confused. "I will explain everything in good time, but for now you must hurry! Your body will wake up any minute!"
"Am I not dead? Is this just some really weird coma dream telling me to go write Rose Quartz fan theories?" She laughed.
"All in good time…" She turned around and my vision became blurred.
"Wait!" I cried out but it was too late, she was gone.
"She's been out for almost a week, are you sure she's okay?" I heard faintly.
"Take a good look, if anything that bad happened then she would just retreat into her gem." Gem? Am I just having a crazy Steven Universe coma? This is just a dream...right?
"Guys, I think she's waking up." My eyes slowly began to open. I saw bright light stream in from various windows and doors. Multiple people were standing around as I began to awake.
"Amethyst, Garnet, get over here! She's waking up!" I heard. I looked around and saw where I was.
I began freaking out as I slowly got up.
This can't be happening...this can't be happening...this can't be happening…
"Well, I'm Pearl, that's Garnet and Amethyst-"she was cut off by Steven.
"And I'm Steven! Who are you?" I looked at him. I watched the show Steven Universe and thought it was cool and all...but this was too much…
"I'm Lea." I quickly said, earning an odd look from Pearl.
"You are a gem, right? We found you washed up on the beach not far from here." I looked down at myself. I looked relatively normal. I was wearing a plain spaghetti strap black shirt and short black jean shorts with some simple gym shoes. It wasn't the clothes that bothered me, it was the fact that it looked as though I was wearing gloves and thin black socks, but I wasn't. My skin faded to pure black just past my knees and elbows. I felt something inside of me, something not human. I reached up to touch the eyelid covering my right eye, which had been dead since I was born. I felt something cool and smooth, but not skin. I brushed the hair covering it away to reveal a pitch black gem where my eye should've been.
"I...I don't know."
Lea: Please tell me that you'll actually update this
NM: (Frantically tosses aside scribbled on calendar) no-yes-um-I think…
I actually have a plot made up for this! It involves Peridot's experiments, Malachite, and more! Fun!
Lea: (Backs away slowly)
Amethyst: (Wraps arm around NM's shoulders) I like the way you think
NM: Great minds think alike, after all
Pearl: This can only end so well
See you all next time! Bye!
