Carbide peels herself up off the tiles an drops her weapon with a loud clattering THUNK.. rather akin to the sound of a dropping anvil, which poofs away a few scant seconds later after landing on the floor. She stands there arms dangling looking a little bit spent as well and plods over to where the shimmering gem lay on the stonework, pausing to ruffle Octy's hair a little bit along the way...
"Well, if i didnt know any better I'd say that was a darn close imitation of functional team work, haha!"
Carbide stands over the gem core a moment then bends down to pick it up, holding it at arms length and then tossing it up a foot or so in the air, and quicly flipping her hand over to tap it with her fingertips as a plum and iridescent bubble ~hmmmmbzammmpp~ 's into existance around the gem core, which hovers there safe and sound. She trots past Gaspeite and gives the fusion a playful bump with her hip..
"Remind me nto to get on your pointy side, okay Gaspeite. I think I've got a safe place in mind that I can send this thing for now."

Gaspeite would smile at Octi falling flat to the ground, before realising only after the fight that she is a little bit tired, not a lot, but still. She strongly senses the casual atmosphere that quickly came around after the fight, as she gets rid of her weapon and armor, and tilts her head for a second when Carbide swiftly teleports the gem somewhere else. Gaspeite seems happy about how the fight went and their collaboration, it was good to change her mind and that's a situation in which both of her components agree on all the time! The fusion might aswell be more protective regarding others than herself, just because she estimates her defensive abilities very high, but who knows when her limis will be reached.
"This was quite refreshing. I think we've got all the room for improvement on team fights, but that was good job. Though I think this particuliar one wasn't very strong, it went down pretty easily with all our attacks. Anyway, I think we could train together sometimes, it would be... fun. Now, what do you both want to do, go back to meditation or do something else? Personally I've got my fill on meditation, but staying longer is alright."
She remembers that she hasn't taken out her screen just for writing for a long while, she just showed them a couple of images but since they were at Morion's place, Gaspeite didn't use her screen much. She does a thumbs up after Carbide finishes talking about the gemstone.
"Nngh...I'm fine with whatever personally." Octi sighed as he sat up, still on the ground as he looked up at Carbide and Gaspeite "Either way, I could use the extra time to recharge, but I can always rest up back at my shack." The Bloodstone was feeling a little bit better but was still exhausted from the effort he had put in battle. The berserker mode he used always seemed to put in some hard energy requirements, normally making him rest anywhere from hours to days "I'm um...perfectly fine doing more meditation or..whatever you two might want. I feel like the meditation's already let me talk about what was bugging me so...I um...I wouldn't mind doing more of it if it may help"

Carbide trots over to Octy and picks him up like a log, setting him up straight and brushing some of the dust from the fight off his appearance modifiers.
"We can continue with that for a little while yet if you feel like there is still something you want to work out, or perhaps you came up with some insights or some such thing during the fight that you want to air a little bit?"
After getting Octy back up on his gravity connectors she goes and stands over beside Gaspeite, giving her an affirming bump on one of her lower arms, for her efforts in dealing with the monster hiding in the temple fountain.
"I guess we can stay here a bit, or perhaps we could meet somewhere else. We are all in one piece, and morale is good, so there is nothing but possibilities from here on out. I can stay here, or go elsewhere."

The fusion would put her hand on Carbide's shoulder while an unexpected rather friendly smile, it looked like she didn't have that much fun in a while.
Gaspeite would talk differently, more free compared to usually this time. "Hey, Octi, I think it can only do you, or everyone, some good to relax a bit longer near the edge of this beautiful lake, then maybe go off and do something together later, in Empire city or such? I don't think anymore monster should be annoying us, so doing a bit more meditation would be perfect, to stabilise your thoughts. We can leave whenever you feel like it, that's really not a problem.
After that, she begins walking forward, taking a few steps forward in the direction of the water and inviting her friends to do the same. A fight like that sure changes thoughts for a while, but it was a reflex to invite Octi and Carbide to relax a bit more, seeing as how Octi is troubled. It felt to Gaspeite as if for sometime, she wasn't troubled by her different thoughts and just opened up for once. She knew that she couldn't do this all the time, but it was sure enjoyable to release the seriousness just for a moment at least.
"I...suppose that might not hurt. Thank you Gaspeite" Octi smiled and sighed happily "I think I definitely need some meditation. Maybe some more of that could help me...figure things out" The Bloodstone walked over to the water and sat down in a good spot. He was still somewhat sore from the fight so if nothing else this would be a good opportunity for himself to recharge if possible. "I do wish I could figure out an...easy way to talk to or divide up between my two half that seem to exist. If nothing else I just want to get a better understanding of them, why I have the shifting abilities. Like I said earlier...that's all that's bugging me in the ned"

"Alright that sounds fine to me, besides I wouldn't mind a few moments to get a few bits of that gross monster glue off of me... ugh.. even some still on my hair.."
Trotting over near Octy but still giving him some space she sets herself by the water right next to Gaspeite, but in a rather different position. Instead of sitting up straight or cross legged, she lies down on the sun warmed tiles upon her back and lets her hair dangle back lazily into the water, the chilly sensation mixing with the warmth of the sun rather pleasantly. She hoped that Gaspeite would feel comfortable with her lying here like that. It had been a pleasant surprise to hear the fusion's voice pattern relax somewhat in the past few moments. If that is a more natural way for her to speak, she guessed that she hadn't had many opportunities to use the less formal pattern, while in service.

Gaspeite was sitting down a fair distance from the water, watching Octi sit down aswell as Carbide lying down in a rather comfortable way at the edge with her hair resting in the water. It seemed very cozy and warm, but Gaspeite wouldn't be able to meditate like that, she needed that proper form for her whole body to make one with her mind.
Gaspeite turned about 90° towards the Bloodstone... "Octi, I think I can try to help you about your problem. as it looks like you are able to be in one state while still talking for both, which I'd say is a good start. Now, sit down a bit closer and let me explain to you how it goes, alright?"
Gaspeite puts her hands together, taking her usual meditating pose. She talks in a calm, but serious voice.
"Now. Just like before, relax yourself, focus on your breathing... Next step, you want to concentrate on your thoughts, visualise yourself in your mind, search for your personalities...
Octi sighed and nodded, taking a few deep breaths as he closed his eyes "Alright...trying my best..." The Bloodstone eventually felt himself slip into a calm mental state as he could almost picture both...versions? Selves? At the very least he could sense that both of his personalities were there "I..I'm having a bit of trouble trying to visualize both of them but I can at least SENSE them. I think that this is working somewhat" He smiled softly and concentrated more to try to visualize both of his selves in one area. It was like a version of his shack that he could see, but there was no one else there..or could he just not see them yet?

Carbide lay there with the cool water of the pool soaking away the glue from the battle, her mind hummed along quietly as the soft ripples tickeled tha back of her head through her hair, there had to be a different way of looking at this, if not a solution, maybe just a way of gaining perspective.
"You know Octy, this might sound a little daft, but in some ways, what youre describing sounds like the 'illusion of seperation'. you focus so hard on the parts of each projection that are different, you might be missing out on what feels the same or consistent with each. I am not saying that either gender projection is right or wrong, and certainly not invalid. So please, please use them as your heart demands based on the situation. But maybe you should focus on what feels consistent in each represenation of yourself... orr.. try another bit of shape shifting exercise where you alter your form to exhibit traits and physical features of both projection modes. I am not saying it will be entirely flawless, but it could simple be an exercise. take the most comfortable parts of each, and see how they feel when they are manifested together? What do you think of that Gaspeite?"

Gaspeite turned, listening to Carbide's theory.
"I was coming to this, since essentially a fusion is exactly that, a mixup between both gem's characteristics. Maybe Bloodstone could be mid-way into a balanced fusion, controlling it up to being able to switch from the two versions of themselves. Your theory is very ineteresting, if Octi, you can change between both personalities, you could attempt to try and control both at the same time and such, just like Carbide said."
I seemed like Carbide knew even more than Gaspeite on what was good for Octavian, leaving her with a concerned look on her face.
"Hmm. While fused you do share feelings... she said, whispering to herself. Oh, I was thinking a bit too loud."
Octi sighed and nodded, taking into consideration what both Gaspeite and Carbide had suggested as he concentrated again, trying his best to follow through on those suggestions. As he sat there, he tried his best to follow their advice and try to concentrate on both aspects of...well perhaps themself may be the better term to use. "Nnh.." He hummed a little to himself as he started shifting his form around, losing traits of his masculine form. The body was clearly slimming up a little but still kept the power that the Bloodstone was able to carry normally. The projections hair seemed to get a little longer, changing into a ponytail. The height and weight seemed to look the same. "I um...erm...it's hard to figure out what to refer with...would it be best to say we?" Bloodstone blushed, seeming a bit more comfortable as they tried to keep track of what their form was

Carbide sat up and shook out her heavy mop of hair, and watched the alterations that Octy was doing to their shape. Alittle thinner here, a bit different there, but so far nothing was feeling too outlandish, or different, Octy seemed to be succeeding in striking some semblance of balance between masculine and feminine aspects, insomuch as they could be considered to apply to gems.
A jolt of magic energy finishes launching all the moisture from her hair, and she makes paces to watch alongside Gaspeite, with all the enthusiasm on her face of a movie-goer waitin for the credits to finish rolling.
"Well just take your time, I dont think theres anything else thats gonna interrupt us up here. Hmm.. Say Gaspeite, whe you first fused, did you have to do some negoitation between your component gems as to your form, or id it all just kinda.. fall into place without much revision?"
She hadn't thought about it much before herself, but then again she hadn't fused either, so there was that...
Post by Zriphelo (Gaspeite) on Feb 25, 2017 23:12:57 GMT
Gaspeite settled for a moment, looking up through the now more blue-ish sky, still holding a tint of orange. Gaspeite had unfused times in the past, but it was routine. Now, her first fusion... that was still clear in her mind, even though the feelings that she can imagine aren't describe-able, they're experiences, not defined things.
"When we first fused... that was... rather special. We were both young gems, blindingly following orders. Gaspeite is a Homeworld fusion, meaning we knew that we had to be in cohesion, as in, we were determined after the training to find ways to stay, but it took some time before getting it to be natural. It takes a good will and a lot of understanding each other to have a fusion working. I can't go any further into my explanations, sorry.
It would fit the best for us to call you Bloodstone, but refer to yourself as -I-."
Gaspeite was putting some hope for Octi, or rather, Bloodstone now.
"A-Alright...I have no idea if...well, I'm a fusion or not but...it feels like using that mindset would help in trying to keep myself sane." Bloodstone sighed, not really deciding to go by any names for now until things were cleared up "If I ever WAS made as a fusion those..memories are out of my system." They sighed and looked at both Carbide and Gaspeite "It's like...I can sense both Octavian and Octavia in here, but I have no idea if we were ever separate gems at some point....WHY CANT I REMEMBER?!" They punched the ground in frustration and sighed, holding their head "I-It's just...I like this simpler method but I have no idea what to do now..."
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
