Obsidian was taken by surprise by the volley of jabs from Fulgurite shields, being pelted by them she had no choice but to embrace it. One by one with the hits connecting to their destination, Obsidian tried to counter attack but she realized she couldn't attack either way if Fulgurite attacks continued like this. Having enough of the enemy attacks she forced herself to fall on her back, seeing this is the only solution out of this onslaught of attacks, with the moment given to her she rolled out of the way quickly as she can. "D-damn it! i won't lose to some mistake!! " Obsidian cursed her in mind.
She quickly hatched a plan to hopefully win this fight....the famous and ultimate plan she has formed, this plan has won her battles in homeworld before and when she was facing against all odds..
Runs like heck.
"TOKINDA TO YO" Was her screech of victory, running in a overly exaggerated fashion, she heads to a cave entrance that was conveniently near her, taking this stroke of luck she manages to skiddale away from Fulgurite and into the cave where she can hide from him.
"TOKINDA TO YO" Fulgur wen to strike the ground where Obsidian landed but missed as she moved out of the way and started running towards a near by cave. Not to be out done, Fulgur kept up the chase. He decided to use a similar technique he had used against Pyrope while in the Kindergarten. As he ran he dug his shields into the ground to hook some of the ground beneath him, and flung his arms forward shooting a shower of sand and rubble towards the fleeing Obsidian. Due to the loose nature of the ground around them there wasn't many large projectiles beyond the stray pieces of collapse pillars, but the sheer volume of debris is enough to be a determent.

As soon Obsidian felt some sand and rubble hitting her from behind she brought her arms to cover her hand from the upcoming debris from Fulgurite. With the dust quickly settling from that sand attack Obsidian swiped her hand over her gem and summoned her weapon. With luck on her side (for now) she turns her view toward her chaser and with a hardy swing from her weapon, several shards of sharp Obsidian objects went flying towards the general vicinity of Fulgurite, of course she risked the chance of being tripped by doing this and to her dismay she almost tripped but managed to catch her fall and continued to run frantically to the cave entrance but sadly with her saved fall it came with a price, meaning that her speed slowed as she stopped herself from falling.
Fulgur brought up his guard quickly and deflected the shards fired from Obsidians weapon and kept up the chase. He still had speed on her and closed the gap right before the cave entrance and took a diving lunge at Obsidian. His intent was to get another strike against her center mass to hopefully hinder her further and with the cave she was heading for he would well more than be able to find her a way to trap her and finish the battle. The cave was moderately large but there was only the one way in and out that Fulgur had mapped out. His sense of object permanence gave him the advantage when it came to managing his location and using it to his advantage.

It was no use for Obsidian at this point, she knew there is no escape from this gem. With Fulgurite diving managed to talk Obsidian to the ground, she knew it was over for her.
While she was about to take a beating of a lifetime her droids managed to find the pillar that had some communication function's working, they scanned it's mainframe and Cpu and floated out of there, wanting all of them to retreat back to the ship safely as possible.
Obsidian tried to roll on her other side so she can block the onsluaght of attacks from the other gem but it was useless, she was getting hit from behind and she was pinned down, she could take a couple more hits before she retreats back to gem....Was this truly the end of her?
Fulgur had won. Obsidian was one her back attempting to crawl away and he didn't let up. Strike after strike with his shields rained down on Obsidian as Fulgur unleashed. He was letting his anger and pain get the best of him, cause his strikes, got faster and less precise but at that point it wasn't needed. He was to the point of laughing and screaming as he the the attacks fly as his repressed memories were being purged from his mind. "I'M NOT A FAILURE, I'M A RIGHTEOUS SUCCESS, LOOK AT ME NOW YOU MONSTER! UNDERSTAND THAT WHAT YOU CALLED WORTHLESS IS NOW GREATER THAN YOU COULD EVER HOPE TO BE YOU WORTHLESS ROCK!" He screamed as he struck at Obsidian with tears quickly filling his vision.

"I-hurk.....am...the Mad Scientist...feared throughout Homeworld...I, Obsidian...WILL NOT LOSE TO YOU!" She mentally raged.
"I'M NOT A FAILURE, I'M A RIGHTEOUS SUCCESS, LOOK AT ME NOW YOU MONSTER! UNDERSTAND THAT WHAT YOU CALLED WORTHLESS IS NOW GREATER THAN YOU COULD EVER HOPE TO BE YOU WORTHLESS ROCK!"
She moved both of her arms ahead of her, taking a a small looking chip from her data pad and placing it in one of her gloves, without a second to waste she mashed several buttons on the droids monitor pad, making it go crazy with it's sparks shooting out of it's mainframe.
"Righteous?! Hurk! You were a mistake to begin with." Those were her last words told harshly to Fulgurite as she used all her might to turn her back from the wailing punches and shoved the frantic Data pad right into Fulgurite face, activating it's EMP self detonation.
"Righteous?! Hurk! You were a mistake to begin with." Fulgur realized what Obsidian was doing a moment too late due to his blind fury and reacted almost too late. He jumped away to try and escape the blast but was partially caught by it. He hit the ground like a sack of potatoes and skidded across the ground. Both of his legs shut down and so did his left eye, but the fail safe in his arm kept it from being shut off. He rolled himself onto his back and sat himself up turning to where Obsidian had set off the EMP and started to crawl back towards the smoldering crater and burnt sand. He wasn't done until he knew she was poofed.

From the crater out jumped Obsidian with a missing arm due from the explosion, panting she took one look at the crawling Fulgurite and decided to take this opportunity to escape and that she did, running as fast she can she moved her remaining arm to her mouth. Luckily the part she took out from the monitor was a comm's device implanted with a failsafe from EMP's. "I need a evac out of this place now!" She yelled into her comms, she wasn't worried over the fact she lost the arm, her abilities can simply regrow her arm back in place due to the lava of Earth. She praised her luck even more due to the fact that her gem wasn't damaged from the explosion at all.
"I need a evac out of this place now!" Fulgur ground his teeth as he kept trying to crawl towards Obsidian. He clawed the sand as he moved and yelled at Obsidian. "Neat trick you hack! Problem is I'm still here and you're missing and entire limb." Fulgur grinned and blinked repeatedly, trying to get his eye to kick back on to get depth perception back. He stopped and let out a sigh and looked at the ground briefly. "Neither of us is in a condition to continue, and as much as I hate to let you go, even if in tried, I doubt I could finish you off without being able to stand." He looked up a Obsidian with a scowl on his face. "I'll let you escape this time, but if i ever find you again. I will not hesitate to shatter you, and next time that trick of you're isn't going to work. So run while you can, but understand. You're a dead gem walking." Fulgur tries to prop himself up while talking and gets to a somewhat seated position while keeping himself propped up with his hand. He stares at Obsidian and digs his fingers into the sand.

She wanted to take this advantage and kick the gem while he was down but she didn't want to risk the chance of getting one of her legs caught and having to deal with that situation again.
"I'll let you escape this time, but if i ever find you again. I will not hesitate to shatter you, and next time that trick of you're isn't going to work. So run while you can, but understand. You're a dead gem walking." She panted, having little to none energy from this whole fiasco, she liked his guts and confidence. It's a shame that he wanted her dead. They would've worked together for a bit.
"It's a shame that a failed project like you has the guts to kill his creator. If you were still obedient to Homeworld and to me. I would've upgraded all that tech you're carrying around. Perharps i could even given you a ride!" She teased him with the mention of a ship. "I underestimated you and i payed the cost... but next time." her happy go lucky attitude had changed to a cruel and pure hatred tone toward the crippled gem. " I am going hang you by the neck with your limbs chopped off while i slowly drill my way up to your gem."

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"'s Origin is still unknown, some suspect it was a viral infection, other claim it was a Diamond experiment gone awry and other suspect the organics were behind it. Regardless no one seem to have a proper answer about what it was and why its only isolated to Earth
*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
