The was sun was rising and the sky was painted orange, with hints of salmon pink and blue. The Star Sapphire was walking down the beach, not paying much attention to his surrounds, he kept his eyes to the ground. Something was on his mind, perhaps he was just dwelling on the revelation that he wasn't the only one of his kind, after all. It was a lot to take in, honestly. He couldn't think of a way to piece it all together so it would make sense. Why were they here, of all places? How long have gems been on Earth? There were too many questions that he couldn't answer. It made his head hurt a bit, he so he stopped walking to look at the sun set and breathe. He suddenly realized how far he was from town and groaned a bit, "Oh noo, not agai- ..." Something suddenly caught his eye, it seemed to be a statue of sorts from where he was standing, which was to the right of it, "What...?" Danny looked confused as he approached it, he couldn't understand what this huge thing was. He looped around a bit, and saw the gaping entrance, "... Wh-what is this place?" He stuttered, scanning the cave-like entrance.
Amon sat idly gazing down at the townspeople from one of the rooftops, observing all the goings on with the people below. Amon wondered how these people could find any entertainment just by doing the same things day in and day out. After a while he noticed a gem walking along the beach alone, his head pointed down. Seeing this opportunity to cure his boredom, Amon leaped down in front of the gem, loudly announcing his presence. "Hey hey hey hey hey HEY! My name echoes far and wide across the galaxies! Tales of my amazing feats will be told throughout the generations! I am Amon and I challenge you-" Amon yelled and pointed at the gem, as he walked straight past him, seemingly oblivious to the large gem's presence.
Agitated, Amon turned to the gem. "You dare ignore me? I will make you regret your very existence!" The gem, despite Amon's best efforts, kept on walking. Amon angrily followed behind him, screaming all sorts of insults and constantly trying to get his attention. After a while he saw the gem walk up to the gem temple. "... Wh-what is this place?"
"Why should I tell you, idiot?" Amon said, as if the gem was actually talking to him. At this point Amon didn't even know if getting the gem's attention would be worth the fight.
The door opened from the Temple, revealing contents of dark and light mixed together. Gate emerged from the doorway, coming out to the Temple's grounds. He stretched his arms and extended his right leg outward with a relieving sigh. "That felt nice," Gate said happily to himself.
He continued onward toward the beach's sand and crashing waters. Gate came to a stop upon scanning the cave's entrance and seeing the gems. "Oh~ Company!" He slowly approached them before halting at a comfortable distance between them.
Gate's facial expression displayed a friendly and welcoming nature. He was willing to introduce himself to the gems. Gate scanned the two gems, though Amon seem to catch his attention. "H-hello...," he shyly said all of a sudden. He didn't look very nervous, though.
Danny quirked an eyebrow, realizing someone was finally following him, "Eh, you know?" Danny scowled over his shoulder, by the looks of it, this rude dude who called him an idiot was probably a gem, or knew something about it, "So you know something about this place, eh?" Danny replied, turning around to face Amon. He started to approach him, "Perhaps you could be a helper then, and drop the attitude and tell me about how being a gem works, because I haven't the foggiest clue, myself." He explained, Danny wasn't in the mood for this jerk to just outright withhold such information like that from him, he suddenly stopped and noticed Gate, "Huh?" Danny glanced over his shoulder quickly, "You a gem, too?" He asked.
"Tch." Amon smirked at the gem. "Look buddy, I came here to pick a fight, not be a damn tour guide!" Amon flipped up his glasses and stared the gem right in the eye. "Now, are you going to comply, or do I have to force a fight out of you?" Ever since he met Alex, nothing else had been able to entertain him quite as much as the kid had. However, he had recently lost track of Alex, almost as if he was being avoided. Instead of dealing with that hassle he decided he would just go around and see if anybody else could sate his want to be entertained. He had finally found a fight he could pick and wasn't letting this chance slip by.
Gate calmly walked closer to the confused gem. "I am indeed a Gem." He moved his hand to gem and stood by Danny's side. "This is the Temple of the Crystal Gems to be exact. It contains the burning room and the rooms of gems." His free hand came in front of Danny as he looked sweetly to Amon.
"Spare this fellow." Gate knew this gem wanted a fight and he was very interested in this gem and decided to become a replacement in the duel. "I-I..." He could hardly look Amon in the eyes without blushing lightly, "I'll fight you."
"And for a quick introduction, I am Gate. Consider me of the Crystal Gems, sorta." He moved his free hand in front of him, preparing for a duel as his gem glowed.
Danny looked a bit upset, "Hey, hey, hey!" He taps Gate on the shoulder, he wasn't gonna give up the fight so someone else could fight this bozo! Not on his life, "What's the idea, buddy!?" Danny growled, gritting his teeth lightly, "This guy wants t' fight me, so it's me he's gonna get." Danny felt like his presence was underminded, and he HATES being underminded. This is usually leads to some pretty violent shenanigans with humans due to his quick-to-rise temper when people talk bad about him or his jacket, which was his pride and joy. He squints at Amon, "It's a fight you want, buddy?" He shouts, "It's a fight yer gonna get, just because you think you can call me an idiot and hold out on some vital information." Danny didn't even hear half of what Gate told him, he was just flustered that it all came down to this.
"Ahahaha, Yeah that's what I'm talking about! I'll take you all on!" Amon assumed a boxer's fighting stance as he started rapidly shooting off punches towards both gems. "Come on, come on, come on, come on!" Amon spun on the spot to deliver two powerful blows to the gems before him. "Oh how glad I am that some-one finally wants to take me on. THIS BETTER NOT BE BORING WHELPS! GYAHAHA" Amon laughed maniacally, re-assuming his boxer stance. He had finally found more people to fight so he really didn't want to ruin this by losing. Though by taking them both on might have been biting off more than he could chew, he knew he could do it if he paced himself. After all, he wasn't like these gems. He wasn't like any gem. "If you don't hit back, this'll be too easy."
"I didn't want to fight... I didn't want to hurt you..." Gate had stepped back from the scenery about to happen and allowed Danny to enter the brawl alone. "I wanted to be nice..." He noticed the incoming blow from Amon and frowned. Something about Gate didn't want for Amon to become injured and his ego was adorable yet dashing. Gate delivered a swift and steady arm to block the incoming attack and sighed. "Please, don't do this. You will lose," Gate explained the truth.
The dual-colored gem took another backward step and his shadow along with the others shifted around. They began to rise and condensed into solid matter as they traveled over to Amon. "I like you... you're fun," Gate giggled, blushing. The shadows attempted to encase Amon!

Danny leans back, with a small slide, he barely misses the attempted blow... The force of it could be felt, even though he missed, it was like nothing he had ever experienced, Danny was used to only fighting humans so he hadn't fought a gem before, so he had to take precautions here or face certain defeat, he felt wildly nervous. But he couldn't show, he couldn't afford to, Danny popped his jacket collar, "Alright, pal. Let's go!" He shouts, assuming a boxing position, himself. He begins to inhale, but he doesn't exhale, oddly. Danny quickly charges forth, and delivers a fast t jab towards Amon, "You bit off more than you can chew, buddy!" He announces, "You've got no chance!"
Amon's punches being dodged and blocked only to served to anger Amon, though at the same time a smile spread across his face, noticing that the fight wouldn't be as easy and one-sided as he had first thought. One of the gems delivered a quick jab at Amon, not even attempting to doge it, Amon let the jab hit his hard, metal chest to very little effect. "Bit off more than I can chew? Well, that's fine. I have a big mouth!" Amon joked, bursting into laughter. He decided to switch all his attention the gem that had hit him, with the other one not wanting to fight, he decided it would be best to deal with him later. Mostly because he creep-ed the hell out of Amon. Amon used a quick burst of energy to launch himself high into the air. Bringing his hands together he used another burst of energy to send himself careening towards the gem, using all of his might to slam down on him. Even if it missed, the attack would cause a massive shock-wave in the sand.
Danny grinned, and attempted to block the slam, "A big mouth, eh? All the more reason t-" Danny's attempt to block was an ill choice all around, as the block did next to nothing and probably did more damage than good, perhaps he was better off dodging that gem, but he didn't think at all, he was focused on just how much that slam hurt his arms and how he's probably bit off more than HE can chew. He grunts as the slam knocks him down some. "Huh, you're... Pretty strong." He wheezes as he hops to his feet, he had to think, he took a deep breath, but didn't exhale, again. Why was he doing that? It was pretty odd, Danny lunged at Amon and attempted to grapple him, "Let's see you get outta' THIS!" He shouts with a grin.
Gate had assume the shadows missed to encase Amon. He looked at the fight going and it only caused him to back away further. His eyes traveled all over the place to keep up on what was going on.
I don't want them to be fighting and this gem looks like he'll be losing. Gate yawned out of boredom and decided to set his attention on Amon. He swayed back and forth and thought of the many ways on how Gate could defeat the gem. Then an idea popped into his head: Since they ignored my shadows, I'll be changing everything.
Gate's gem glowed and the light around the two fighting can to grow brighter and brighter to an almost blindingly light in the area of which they fought in. This'll be great.
Amon stuck his large arm in front of his opponent's grapple, either the opponent would have to just cancel his grapple or grab onto his arm. "Not bad kid, but it'll take a lot more to-" Amon stopped himself as he noticed the glowing gem next to him. Amon shifted all of his attention onto the other gem. "You finally gonna make a move creep?" Amon jeered, getting into a ready stance. 'Light AND shadow?' Amon thought to himself, shifting his weight from one leg to another. 'This can go one of two ways, this creepy one joins me and we beat down the other one, or more preferably, they both turn against me and I have a good ol' time thrashing them around.' Amon shook the thoughts out of his head, being fine with either one he waited out his opponents moves.

Well, beggars can't be choosers on the battlefield, Danny grappled the arm, and inhaled one more time. He honestly did not know if this was going to work, but he had to try, but just in case-
Danny slipped off his shoes, he never wore socks, in all honesty. Didn't think he'd ever need them, and they would've made what he was about to do more difficult, in his opinion. Hanging off Amon's arm, Danny attempted to slam his feet into Amon's face with all his strength, "How do you like THAT, eh!?" He shouts, cracking a smug grin, he was so caught up in the fight he didn't even notice the other gem making their move, either way he was focused on Amon all the way. There was hardly anything that could stop him now, anything at all.

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.
