3JJ pushed herself up to her full, towering height. A sly grin pulled over her lips, and she pulled her hand away, revealing the perfect sheen of her jasper core. "If this was a real fight, you'd be in a real bind right now," She grumbled sardonically, then smacked her head a few times between her palms and shook out her whole musculature. She spun the baton around in her grip, and began to back peddle while keeping her eyes locked on Phenakite, "I've got a thick head, worry about yourself there, soldier," She wouldn't launch herself at Phenakite just yet, after all the gem had just stopped the fight to try to offer her aid; it was a reminder to the whole stadium that the two of them weren't really enemies.
For Padparadscha, a gem often caught in the whirl of investigative lifestyle, dealing with the shadowy causes behind the rebellion, it was profound to see Phenakite, still dizzy from the attack, extend help to her opponent. For the sapphire, it was almost an allegory; gems were not meant to be fighting gems, they were meant to be working together, helping one another. It was enough to bring just a bit of moisture to the aristocrat's eyes, though she wouldn't want to be seen shedding tears or otherwise being overly emotional among her peers, and quickly dabbed it away.

"...I don't believe this." Topaz, silent throughout the whole fight, decided to voice her incredulity at the whole situation. Phenakite's preamble before the battle and her actions during had clearly displayed her loyalty and skill - but for what reason did she show such traits immediately to what amounted to an 'owner' that she hasn't met before? Were Quartz soldiers just... better at not questioning orders? Topaz leaned back, exhaling out her nose as the battle continued and thoughts streaked across her mind. The act of kindness left many Gems in shock as they realized that this wasn't just for violence - this activity was sanctioned for camraderie above all else. Whatever the outcome of the fight, be it good or bad, wouldn't matter much either way. Topaz's vision focused as Phenakite took the grace period gifted to her and prepared to go back in, swords at the ready.
Padparadscha peered toward Topaz as she spoke, though it seemed the gem was talking to herself more than anything, and otherwise seemed focused on what had transpired. Still, sitting for long periods of time without speaking had always made Padparadscha uncomfortable, and she was tempted to coax Topaz into further conversation,"Unexpected to be sure. From what court does Phenakite originate?" As the sapphire spoke quietly, Pink Pearl-- who had been exceptionally quiet up to this point-- continued to keep her focus on what was happening below.
Despite her tough talk, 3JJ couldn't just brush off such a solid impact straight onto the top of her head; she gave her head and shoulders another wriggle, attempting to shake it out, but the pain was stubborn. Now with a mighty headache and a lesion on her leg, the jasper used this moment to carefully watch Phenakite, sizing up the damage that had been inflicted to her opponent. However, she didn't want to give her opponent too much time to recover, and decided to quickly dive into the offensive, tumbling forward into a spin dash. She peeled toward Phenakite, sending dust and gravel blasting into the low level atmosphere surrounding them, gaining more momentum as she raced over the distance she created, and aimed straight for the more lithe quartz.
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.
