Flurry sat atop the Sky Temple, waiting for her ally to come and join her. The Crystal gems had given the two a mission, to fight some corruptions living in a floating building. The building's nature was long-forgotten, but it was built by the gems. Some had theorized that it was a gauntlet for warriors to test their strength, or a death trap guarding an artifact. The crystal gems decided that it should be searched, as it could contain valuable supplies for winning the war. Now no one dared venture inside, due to the deadly flying corruptions that called it home. Both to bubble the corruptions, as well as to search the ruin it came time that one of the crystal gems should search it. Flurry herself had only gotten on to such a mission due to her cloud ability, allowing her to fly. Her ally, Bluegold was a gem she had never met, which excited Flurry. She loved meeting new people, which was scary when they were a homeworld gem.
Sitting on the edge of the temple she dangled her legs off the edge and kicked them playfully as she waited. She occasionally glanced over her shoulder, starting to get nervous before the encounter. She wondered if she should have brought some iced tea, it was hot today!
The sound of flapping wings and quickly after a thud could be heard behind Flurry. A large four armed fusion had landed there . She stretched and grinned. "Getting pretty good with the landing!" The fusion said, just before coming apart, leaving two gems there, a small icy blue gem, she was Blue's accomplice.
"I could really get used to those wings of yours!" Blue said, getting a chuckle out of Opalite. "You can only use them cuz we were fused, if not, you wouldn't know how to fly with these." The two shared a laugh as they approached their teammate for the day. Blue was tall, taller than even the perfect quartz soldier, she was a goldstone, clearly to be feared.
Flurry had finally stopped glancing over her shoulder when the loud thud nearly knocked her off the edge. She stood and turned toward them, gazing upon their fusion as they unfused. Flurry gasped and ran to them. Flurry might have been intimidated by the statuesque goldstone, but Flurry was the type of gem to first judge by a face rather than a form. The smile on Blue's face was the first thing Flurry saw, and so she had not a hint of fear as she approached them. She however, at her minuscule two foot height had to look up high to see them. She was used to doing this.
"H-hi! Are you Bluestone...or...are you Bluestone?" She asked, looking back and forth between them. She hadn't been expecting two gems!
Blue waved. "Just call me Blue." She said and looked over at Opalite. "This is Opalite. My comrade, my best friend..." She pulled Opalite into a tight hug. "And the love of my life." She said softly, Opalite's cheeks flushed at this as she hugged back. "Blue..." Opalite seemed really shy. "Oh come on, you love the attention." Blue grinned and released Opalite who stood there, her hands behind her back, she was four foot ten, even she towered over Flurry. Whilst Blue was almost eight feet tall.
"So, we've gotten word of a temple that needs infiltration, how are we gonna go about this? Fly in, or sneak in?" Blue asked, thinking the small gem would have had the plan of action thought out. Blue and Opalite turned to look at each other, they were thinking the same thing. "Fly." So, the two of them took one another's hands and began to dance to an imaginary rhythm, soon, their forms became one, they were Labradorite again.
Flurry smiled and nodded as she smiled up at her new friends. When she found out that they were in love she smiled even wider, blushing a bit. As Flurry blushed her cheeks turned blue, rather than red. She giggled hopped up and down. "Love love love! Yay! I love love!"
She then had to calm down a bit for the serious question. Their mission! Yeah! This was serious crystal gem business! Flurry put her hands on her hips and tried to look serious. She tried to address the question immediately, but realizing that it was a bit of a complicated answer. However as soon as they fused Flurry caught her thoughts.
"Oh! Oh! I know! We aren't here, the Sky Temple is totally safe, but the mysterious ruins are a long way away, but I can take us there on...my cloud!" Flurry said excitedly, waving her arms and summoning her cloud mount. The cloud took the shape of an elongated cube. It was about seven feet long and five feet wide. It looked soft and easy to grab on to. Flurry hopped on. "Let's go!"
The fusion nods. "I know." She said as her massive wings unfurl, reaching out to her impressive wingspan. "I just prefer to be in control of my own flight." She gave her wings a hard flap, getting airborne fast, she hovered, waiting for Flurry to begin leading. She grinned and held two of her hands together in front of herself, small sparks of electricity bridged the gaps between her fingers. This was a clear sign that the fusion had high amounts of electricity stored in her body, weather it could be controlled was unable to be told. "Let's get going before it gets to late." She said and began to fly around the sky temple, flying laps and waiting whilst keeping herself busy.
Flurry was a bit confused as the other gem started flying. She had been called because of her ability, she thought that she was sent to escort a stronger gem. It seemed that this gem was capable of escorting herself. After a bit of thought Flurry realized what this meant. They had chose her specifically! Flurry grinned, but stopped abruptly. They probably only sent her due to her healing powers. She would be a good support gem for even the strongest warrior. She considered that this was not what she wanted, but it was better than not being sent at all.
As Flurry started to float toward their destination she realized that the trip was going to be a long one. She looked over at Bluegold and decided to start a conversation. "Um... so how did you two meet?" She asked with a smile.
Blue Quartz: That was the worst hi ever XD Why ..?

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.
