Out of town once again, Moonstone was wandering about looking for something to do. He was really bored. He did wonder about Bloodstone's whereabouts. He wanted to have a combat training session with him, but didn't know where to find him. He kept wandering, examining his newly upgraded hoverboard. "I wonder where Octi might be. I really need him or her to help me with something, but I need to find him first." he quietly said to himself as he keeps pacing about. He then sees Octi in the distance. He approached him or her casually to not start anything he didn't want to start. "Hi. Nice to see you again, I guess. I wanted to ask you if you can train me in combat."
Octavian had been walking around town before sighing when he saw Moonstone. Personally, he did not leave the best impression after what happened with him and Turquoise. Octi did perk up a little when Moonstone mentioned training "Training, eh? Well...I guess I can help you out there. Come on, let's head over to my place. There's a gym in my second floor." Bloodstone started walking, letting Moonstone follow him. "So..is there any particular reason you want to train? And the fact that you came to ME out of all the gems you could have trained with?" He was very curious, Moonstone was a gem he had yet to truly figure out in terms of motives and he was wondering what his plan was

"Thanks, I deeply appreciate it." he said as he started to follow Octavian. "The main reason why I picked you is because you don't despise me, unlike most other gem warriors on this planet. And the very reason why I want to train is so that I can do a better job defending myself from any other hostile gems." he said as he kept following Octavian.
On the way there, he took out a small cube from his pocket. He then pressed a button which made it fold out into a hoverboard. He checked the systems, which appeared to be in perfect working order. He then pressed the button again. The hoverboard collapsed in on itself and made itself into a small cube again. Moonstone put it back into his pocket.
"Fair enough, I suppose." Octavian shrugged as they went down to his shack on the beach. While they walked, he couldn't help but notice the cube that Moonstone was fooling with. Bloodstone watched in curiosity as it became a overboard and then went back into its cube form. "May I ask just why you're carrying that thing around? I haven't seen any piece of tech like that before. Not in quite some time if nothing else" He smiled a tiny bit as they walked inside Octi's house, heading upstairs to the gym. "So, how do you want me to train you? Did you have any particular moves or methods that you wanted to learn or should we just start with the basics?"

Looking up after fiddling with the cube and hearing Bloodstone ask him about his tech, he couldn't help but smile. He was pleased that someone was curious about his creation. "The reason why I am carrying this thing around is because it serves as transportation. If I need to get somewhere fast, I rely on my hoverboard. This is my own little art. The tech I used is a bit... retro, but I had limited materials. Although it is really nice that it has a compactibility feature." he replied.
As they entered Octi's gym, another question arose. Moonstone hestitated a bit as to think of what to say. "I think it's a good idea to start from scratch. Who knows, I could learn something new." he answered.
(Sorry that I was gone for about a month. I had complications with my computer.)
(It's alright, sorry for not posting sooner ^^' ) Octavian nodded and smiled as they entered the gym. "Scratch it is, just give me a second to get some stuff set up.." Bloodstone hums and walks over to some stuff, hauling out a standstill dummy that was obviously worn out to some degree. "All I want to do first, before we get too far, is that I want to see what some of your basic moves are. Like, how you punch, kick, etc. Once you do that, I can figure out just what to teach you and then we can go from there. Or I could always do some sparring with you, test your basic combat style. Is there anything that might be preferred?"

As he entered the gym, Moonstone looked around a bit at all the equipment. When Octi hauled out the standstill dummy, he noticed how worn out it was. He turned to Octi, who had asked him whether he wanted to test punching and kicking on the dummy, or if he wanted to spar with 9cti. He was a bit afraid of him though, but he thought that Octi might take it easy on him, but had a bit of a hard time choosing. He wanted something that would benefit him the most. He thought about it for a while. After a minute of thinking, he came to a consensus. "I think I should test myself in a spar with you." he said hesitantly
"Alright...that sounds good." Octi smirked and walked up to Moonstone "I'll make sure to go easy on you. I'll fight you until one of us decides to call it quits. No guarantees that it'll be me." The Bloodstone smirked and hauled out four of his chains, holding two of them in his hands while the other two seemed to levitate in the air on their own."Let's see how good you can be" Octi lashed out with two of the chains in his hands, grabbing Moonstone with them and throwing him to the side, forcing him to move. It was clear that he was going to go easy to some degree, but the experience and battle strength was just going to come into play at some point

When Octi said that he probably won't be the one calling it quits, he chuckled a bit and smirked. "I bet you won't call it quits!" he said without sounding pessimistic. Before he took out his chains, he "unsheathed" his sword from his gem. The silver, serrated edge of the blade shimmered brightly like nobody else, but Moonstone has seen before. It was already too late to strike, as Octi has already wrapped the chains around his body, rendering him unable to movr his arms. He was then flung to the side, thus dazing him for a bit, before eventually recovering to his feet. He knew he couldn't get close due to Octi's chains, so he swung his sword even though he wasn't in range of Octi, but an energy beam was released from the edge of the sword and it hurled towards Octi.
Octavian smirked "You can bet that for sure." As he tossed Moonstone to the side, he let go of the gem to dodge the energy beam, rolling out of the way before it hit him. "Nice! That's a good way to break out of that." The Bloodstone hopped up and decided to test some other stuff on Moonstone. He grabbed one of the dummies and used it as a slingshot of sorts to run at him, attempting to deliver a kick to the midsection before Octi disappeared into...the shadows? "One thing not many gems seem to know, I can use the shadows as a bit of manipulation. I'll let you try to figure out just where I am, I'll make myself still...well, hitable. I'm not invisible.." The gem started moving around the room...one hit could maybe get him back in the regular plane of reality

When he was released from the chains, Octi complimented him. "Thanks, but I won't let flattery get to me." he said. He then carefully eyed the movements of his opponent. He saw Octi use the dummy as a slingshot to kick him in the midsection. He casually sidestepped out of Octi's path. After that, he disappeared in the shadows. Moonstone listened carefully for his opponent's movements. Once he got sense of Octi's location, he slashed at Octi at full force and speed. He wondered whether or not his senses failed him, but he waited to see if he will appear again and strike back. He did not let his guard down at all. "You know, I can hide in the shadows too." he said.
Octavian winced as he got hit, coming out of the shadows and sighing. "Good hit! I can tell that you can hide in the shadows. As cowardly as it may seem, it's a good tactic to use." The bloodstone decided to back off for a sec and try to catch his breath. "Tell you what, let's switch things up a little. I'll go on the defense this time and give you a chance to a actually get in some offense" He wanted to make this a fair training fight after all, for the most part at least. Octi technically had the pure experience advantage but other than that he wanted to try and let Moonstone get in some more hits if he wished to

"First off, I don't hide in the shadows because I am scared, but mainly to confuse the opponent. Also, every opponent has a strength, but I can also be their greatest weakness." Moonstone grinned as he plans his next strategic attack. "You are gonna take defense, huh? I guess I have to really think my next move through!" Moonstone casually said. He observed Octi carefully and thoroughly to find any openings if Octi even left an opening in their defense somewhere. Moonstine backed up away from Octi while keeping stance. Once he was at a fair distance, Moonstone charges at him, and somehow leaps over Octi while doing a front flip with his sword positioned so he would hopefully strike Octi's head in midair. When he landed behind Octi, he immediately did a spin attack in hopes of hitting Octi's back. He then prepares for anything afterwards.
((Sorry again for a 2 month delay, I got bored of the RP, but I am back now ^-^))
Octi watched curiously, trying to get a good read of Moonstone to figure out what his strategy was. As soon as he saw him charge, Octi got his chains ready, although admittedly he was surprised to see the young gem flip over the berserker. It had been something that he didn't expect to see. Octi tried to block the midair strike but winced as he was hit by the sword in his back, hitting the spot where his chains came out to some degree "Nnh...nice one." Bloodstone spun around as soon as he could, swinging two of his chains to try to sweep Moonstone off of his legs while sending the others to attack and disarm at the same time "Let's see if you can handle this!"

Moonstone was swept off his feet the moment the chains hit him, but he rolled to try to evade the other chains while still holding onto his sword. He got back up on his feet and he dodged the incoming chains in a tricky way in hopes that the chains will get tangled. It essentially turned into a game of jump rope. At times he would get whipped with a chain or two, but it wasn't enough to destabilize his physical form, although he did take quite the beating. All he can do is observe his movements while trying to dodge the chains lashing at him as well as try to get them tangled so that Moon can give it all that he's got.
Rat: I'm gonna try my darnedest. Posted an ad for RP in the Character Plot area, so alls I gotta do now is wait I think?

This Roleplay is a prequel to Steven Universe to an extent with some slight retconing and its own progression to the story that will turn out differently to how stuff plays out in the show.Thanks to the message by Rose Quartz several gems are rising up to protect Earth and have labelled themselves as the Crystal Gems. Others on earth are remaining aligned to Homeworld though despite the isolation of Earth from Homeworld
All gems on earth are still stranded, the communication hub is still offline and all the space warps are shattered, it has now been revealed that this is the work of Rose Quartz and her small group known as the Crystal gems. They have rebelled against Homeworld and have chosen to protect the Earth (Trapping themselves on Homeworld to keep the warps down).
Now both sides are fighting among themselves along with fighting against the 'Corruption' a virus is infecting many gems turning most of them into mindless monsters, but those with a stronger will seem to becoming something more sinister.
The Game has changed now. The question has finally been posed, are you against Homeworld or allied with them. Or do you have your own agenda that may or may not been assisted by the ‘Corruption’. Regardless the seeds have been placed down and although it is only the beginning the fight for or against Earth and the corruption has begun. The choice is yours for how it is shaped on the Original Steven Universe Roleplay Site.
Orginal Opening Plot Here Thread That Changed Everything
Differances Between the Roleplay and the Show
*Thanks to Rose Quartz' message the Gems on Earth are entirely aware that the Homeworld Gems intend to wipe out the human race.
*The "corruption" is being treated like a virus due to lack of info about it on the show.
*Garnet, Pearl and Rose are assumed capture on Homeworld
*Garnet,Pearl and Rose broke the space warps to delay Homeworld
*Thanks to Roses Message gems now know what the Kindergarten was used for
