As Flint and Blue stepped off the warp pad they gazed at the surrounding area. Flint put a reassuring hand on her shoulder. "You ready? It's time we go see our new home. Smoky mentioned someone named Obsidian so it would probably be best that we go find her while we're here. She could probably give us a tour or something." Flint took her hand as they walked down the street looking for the supposed stronghold. What did Smoky call it? A mini spire or something like that? He looked around to see if he could spot anything of that nature. He was glad he had done this. Now Blue would survive. Not only would she survive, she would live a happy life away from war. That's what he had to do for her and that's what he did.

When Flint held her hand, Blue's face turned a shade of purple. "Yeah we should find her. Normally I'd say this would be hard for two gems but I have a solution. Hold on." She summoned several holograms. "Let's see we have roughly 6 holograms." She faced her creations. "Ok girls, fan out. We're searching for a gem. If you come across any come bring them to me and Flint. She then looked around. Luckily she had a photographic memory so she only had to search once and she'd never get lost. She then looked to Flint. "Thanks for this. I'm glad you did this for us. You're always doing what's best for us. That's one of the reasons why I love you." She then climbed up on his back and kissed him. That was what she always had to do. Being 4'11 and married to an 8 foot Quartz did have it's challenges. But it was worth it. Then she climbed down from his shoulders and resumed her search.
Obsidian was the kind of gem who had more heart than might. She would often find a corrupted gem to fight, but rarely succeeded in poofing it. She desperately wanted to learn to be a warrior in hopes of being accepted by her diamond. Still, after many losses the gem needed some alone time. The Glass city had been almost entirely cleaned out of monsters and was a nice place to rest when she wasn't ready to fight.
Walking under an arch Obsidian examined the glass architecture. She was in an area of the city she had never visited before. It was then that what appeared to be a female-looking gem. Obsidian waved at the 'gem' who was really a hologram.
Flint smiled when Blue kissed him. "Don't worry baby. Everything will be fine." Then he heard a voice. "I think they found something." He started looking around to find the source of the voice. He then spotted one of Blue's holograms with a gem talking to it. He walked up to the gem. "Hello there. My name is Flint Quartz, this is my wife Blue. Can you help us out? We're looking for a gem named Obsidian. Have you seen her around?" He then smacked the hologram and made it disappear. "Sorry, I just don't want you to get confused with who's real and who's the hologram." He really hoped this gem could help him find Obsidian. Whoever she was Smoky seemed fond of her. She could probably help them get used to the city too.

When Flint went to the new gem, Blue faced her hologram. "Good job!" Then Flint smacked it to make it disappear. "I'm sure she could tell the difference Flint." Then she faced the stranger. "So yeah, like Flint was saying, we're looking for Obsidian. Smoky Quartz sent us and he told us to find her. We're new here so we could use some help looking for her." She then looked at Flint. "If she can't help us we're gonna have to find another way to find her." She really hoped that this gem could help her. If things worked out then she could move into the stronghold immediately. If things didn't she would have to navigate an entire city without any sense of direction.
Obsidian saw a bulky, quartz-like gem come toward her. She raised an eyebrow as he stared to speak. He smacked the hologram, causing it to vanish, much to Obsidian's surprise. It was then that a petite Blue gem joined him. What was most unexpected was their topic of conversation.
"Woah! Wait wait wait.... you're looking for me?" Obsidian asked in disbelief. Obsidian then grinned. "Oh I get it, Morion brought you guys to me. Well sorry to let you down but I'm not really an expert, well... nobody is really. This place is kind of weird... I suppose though, if you need any help getting situated I would be the gem to ask!"
Obsidian kicked the floor and a shovel popped out of the gem on her shin. Snatching it Obsidian leaned forward on the shovel to examine her company.
Flint's eyes widened. "Wait! You're Obsidian? Well ain't that a coincidence? We were told to lay low here for a bit a after a little incident back in Empire City. Bit of an overreaction if you ask me but whatever." Then Flint saw her draw a shovel. He raised an eyebrow. "A shovel? What exactly do you do with that? I've been told you're having trouble defending this place. Is this correct?" He was rather confused. This city's protector wielded a shovel for a weapon? It was no wonder she needed them. Flint could easily defend the place and Blue could heal those caught in the cross fire. "So what exactly do you do here besides defense? Do you do anything for fun?" Flint hoped this wasn't one of those gems who didn't understand the concept of fun. Those gems were very dull.

Blue lit up when it turned out the stranger was Obsidian. "Seriously?! That's great! That just makes my day. I had no idea how we were ever gonna find you. As you can see I had my holograms searching for you." Then she drew her weapon. "A shovel? That's amazing! What exactly do you use it for? I've never met gems who summoned tools before. That's incredible!" She was astounded. She didn't think it was possible. Every gem she'd met had some form of combat weapon. This gem had a tool. Perhaps there was hope after all. Then Flint asked about fun. "It's important to have fun. It keeps you from going nuts. You know what they say, All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy." She smiled warmly at the strange new gem.
"Not much a coincidence really! Since well... I'm the only one here!" Obsidian chuckled. She quickly stopped chuckling and became quiet when Flint mentioned her shovel. "It's not really that dangerous here...I don't like live here though, I usually hang out at empire city and go to nightclubs and stuff."
It was then that Blue seemed to appreciate her weapon, a first.
"Incredible? Amazing? Look lady, my shovel is heavy and hard to swing, it's also blunt so it's not very affective." Obsidian said gesturing toward her shovel. "I don't get what's so incredible about a weapon that well... doesn't serve it's purpose at all. I guess it's pretty nifty for digging holes? What can I say?"
Obsidian nodded as they mentioned the importance of fun.
"Well I guess that's good that it's safe here." Then Obsidian mentioned a nightclub. "Course we have! Blue was quite the Disco Queen back in her day. It was '71 I believe when we started going to clubs. We we're talk of the town." He turned to Blue. "What'd you say baby? Wanna hit a club like the old days? Maybe I can get some Disco going. I bet you still got some moves left in you." He then looked to Obsidian. "I bet you could have some fun with us! Do you like Disco Obsidian? Not everyone does but it's a lot more fun than people often realize." Flint began to reminisce about the good old days. The days before the war. Before Blue's abduction. He missed those days. Back then, things were truly peaceful. Then things got out of hand. At least a few things stayed the same.

"Well I think it's incredible that a gem create something other than a weapon for once." She smiled when she mentioned night clubs. When Flint called her a Disco Queen, she blushed, turning her cheeks a dark purple. "Well I was then. I'm probably not as good now. That was 41 years ago. I probably will stink at Disco now." Then she turned to Obsidian. "So yeah, if you want us to we could all go to a night club. Maybe get our groove on. Oh I can't wait! This will be my first club since returning to Earth! Let's have some fun!" She was having such a great day. It seemed that ever since she came back, everything had changed. The gem population was larger and the humans had advanced an awful lot in technology. Everything had changed. Everything was different now.
Obsidian rubbed her chin, faking confidence. She was actually just relieved that the subject had changed from her weapon.
"Disco Queen hm? Well I`m the disco queen now, you`ll have to dethrone me!" Obsidian said with a wink. She grinned as flint asked his question to her. "Of course I like disco! It's like... my thing since I got here on earth! It seems that every planet that supports life has something fun right?"
She smiled as she looked at Blue.
"Great! Then it will be easy to beat you!" Obsidian joked. She secretly thought that it was cute when Flint made Blue blush. "Well come on! I guess we can get you two situated on earth after we get back, this way!"
Obsidian hopped onto a warp pad and waited for the two gems.
"oh I wouldn't challenge her Obsidian. Blue can be very competitive if she wants to be. I think she can take you." Flint looked at the warp pad and shrugged. "Might as well warp there." He followed Obsidian to the warp pad. So where exactly are we going? I can't exactly do Empire City after certain uh unfortunate events that unfolded. Not entirely my fault by the way. I figure you've seen the news lately? I've kinda got a bad reputation there. Humans have clubs all over the world! I'm sure we'll find one." He smiled at Blue as she approached the pad. "Look at us. A married couple going out to a night club. Things are going pretty great I have to say. I wonder how many humans will figure out that we're together. No one better try and flirt with you. I'm just saying."

When Obsidian said she was the Queen now, she smiled. "Well then I'm just gonna have to dethrone you then. I accept your challenge." Then Flint had said not to challenge her. "Too late for that Flint! She's already started it. I can't wait." Then she remembered Empire City. "Yeah he's right we should steer clear of there for a little while. That's actually what brought us here in the first place." Then Flint said no one had better flirt with her. She looked at him. "Flint! Not in front of our friend!" She blushed a little bit. Flint always talked about how he'd knock down anyone trying to hit on her. He had done so several times to various humans. Never had that problem with gems though. It was probably for the best.
"Yeah you guys are probably unwanted in Empire City for a good reason. A lot of strict loyalists are there, that's why I'm taking you to my hometown, by that I mean my first earth town, Jersey!" With that they warped. Rather than the glorious lights of Empire City, a dirty, scary, miserable and bleak town. Piles upon piles of smoke billowed from factories. In spite of this, Obsidian smiled proudly. "Shall we continue?" She said, as if nothing were wrong.
"This place is kind of nasty, but it has it's good areas." Obsidian said, gesturing to her favorite town. "They are a bit like gems you know? It's easy to judge them at first glance, but to be right you have to live with them. You have to see all of the little glorious things about it. The good, the bad, always a bit of both. Also like gems... you love them after some time getting to know them."
Melody: "The fight system of this site is really Ehh..." Well... how would you improve it? ^^

Flurry: I think that theres not much that can be done in just, regular rps, I think before a fight both sides should agree to do it, and decide the winner based on logic, because otherwise we're doing this "Hey im really cool" thing that goes back and forth
Oct 14, 2019 19:51:03 GMT
Flurry: I made Flurry cause id rather have a support/non fighting character anyway
Oct 14, 2019 19:51:31 GMT
Chip the Fire Opal: I have Chip who is a killing machine... and Sapphire who couldn't fight a broom
Oct 14, 2019 19:58:03 GMT
Flurry: Ive got Sulfur who impales people with a lot of swords, and Flurry who cant even heal people without being on the verge of collapse

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
