What a lucky break for Obsidian, today was the day that she was going to experiment on the enemy who attacked her when she first arrived here on earth. "Hohoho!" Obsidian giggled as she admired the Zircon from behind a window. the Zircon strapped onto a table, the table can expand to whatever size if the gem projected it's being outside the gem and it will remained strapped on by the table. "To think, i've captured a corrupted gem! " Obsidian giggled with glee, happy with this new found specimen trapped under her grasp. "Let's begin the procedure shall we~" Obsidian lip's curled into a sinister smile as she pressed a button the the window, the straps on the table sent electricity to the Zircon, trying to awaken it from it's slumber.
Zircon, luckily hadn't been poofed when Obsidian dragged him out of his cell and threw him on a table like some high school biology class. He had however, fallen asleep- which was new to him. He woke up quickly, shouting in pain as he was shocked. "Wh- Where am I?" He said quickly, looking at his strapped down limbs. The corruption hadn't spread anymore since Sugar had poofed him.- He was scared, confused. For a moment he had amnesia, before reminding himself who he was, and what had happened to him on Earth. Then he realized something.. One of the voices in his head were just a whisper now.. No longer fighting against the other voice. The other voice was deep, a little gravelly. He had heard a similar voice to this before, but he couldn't remember who's voice it was. He focused on Obsidian, staring directly at her.

Obsidian stared back from behind the window, her smiling not wavering whatsoever. "Begin with taking a sample of his ooze spilling out from the limb enhancers and then work your way up to his gem, extract every single data you can from his body and gem." The pearl nodded, the lesser cohort made her way to the control room, where buttons and levels laid out on the panel. mechanical sounds broke the silence for Zircon and several metal drills appeared from the walls beside of Zircon, positioning themselves for extraction from the small ( and ugly) gem. The drills activate and begin their trajectory towards Zircon limb enhancers first before going for the body itself. Oh how this pleased Obsidian so, seeing her first enemy in withering pain.
As the drills came closer, Zircon began to panic. The voice in his head started yelling at him to let him take control. He didn't have much choice at this point. He let him take control, and almost immediately he relaxed. The drills entered Zircon's limb enhancers- Which actually didn't hurt since they weren't actually part of his body. The drills didn't find an 'ooze', just a black, rocky material. The 'limb enhancers' crumbled, the rock turning into shards. Under it were artificial limbs, made out of similar material- Less brittle then the last one. He had claws instead of fingers. His feet however, looked the same. The drills slightly pushed into his new, artificial limbs, before the voice inside his head snapped. His gem glowed brightly, and he formed into a monster. He was still strapped down, but the monster quickly snapped out of the bindings, and began tearing up the table he had been imprisoned on.

Obsidian expression remained the same, she wasn't truly afraid of the beast destroying the table, she could easily repair that within seconds. "Pull the drills back and send out new ones." Obsidian ordered the pearl. The Pearl nodded and pulled levers and switches back and forth, bringing in the drills back to whence they came from and in replacement brought out new ones, the ones that scratched the surface of the gem should be enough data for now. "Turn on the recorder, I must also collect data on this gem fighting capabilities." She folded her arms, watching every single movement and attack Zircon made, of course there is no way for Obsidian to remember all of this but for now, she wanted to see if this corruption monstrosity had any "tricks up it's sleeve". She watched the new drills tried to inject themselves toward Zircon. "Let's see how you react to this." she said in a calm tone
Zircon didn't seem fazed. The monster, instead of being injected, hissed and grabbed one of the drills and tore it from wherever it came from. He swung it at one of the other drills, causing it to break as well. He pulled the other drill down, and threw it at the window Obsidian was watching from. He then stared at Obsidian, and pounced, trying to shatter the window. He bounced off of it, but began hitting it with his claws, starting to crack it a bit. A few cracks spread out through the window, becoming larger each time he hit it. He stopped for a moment, picking up one of the other smashed drills and tossing it at the window with all his strength. It put a hole in the window, but didn't shatter it. The drill was stuck in the window now. He hissed at the spectators.

Obsidian still remained at her place, she poked the droid that was sticking out on her window and revealed a automaton sized hole, with a snap of her fingers, a set of layers soon came out from the frames, covering up the dents and holes that Zircon had made with protective layers. "Again." Obsidian said, the pearl turned back to the control panel and commanded more drills to extract and record more possible data of this...corruption. The drills soon began to spin and tried to insert themselves into Zircon which is a very non-pleasant to whoever is on the end of the pointy drill. "Let's see what happens if we piss you off again." Obsidian interested had peaked greatly with this new "test" with corrupted gems, She wonders that if she can somehow extract the corruption for further use of her own.
A very similar thing happened. Zircon grabbed the drills, pulled them out of the ceiling, tossed them, etc. He attempted to break the glass with his claws again, and made a lot of cracks once more. This time however, he actually managed to break through a small part of the glass, and began trying to attack the pearl that was helping Obsidian. He attempted to claw the pearl a few times through the glass, before climbing onto the wall, and then the ceiling. Still on the ceiling, he went to one of the four corners. He hissed at Obsidian and her Pearl. (well, not much else here. I really wish there wasn't a minimum of 120. Mostly because stuff like this happens. I don't need to explain anything else, really. I mean, I think 100 would be more appropriate. Oh, looks like I'm past the 120 minimum. Well, cya.)

"Can you do something else besides grabbing my shit and breaking them?" Obsidian yawned, her curiosity slowly losing interest. Obsidian snapped her fingers once more and the broken windows were immediately replaced with a new set of windows while the old broken ones were disposed off in her ships engine core, giving the core some "energy" to keep it running for a while. As Zircon stepped down from the ceiling, Obsidian looked at him with a blank stare.
"Prepare retain him once again, This time we're not fooling around." The Pearl nodded once again, pressing buttons and pulling levers from the control panel, the room sparked with electricity all over the walls and floor, electrocuting any gem that would be in that room with massive amount of watts. "Once he is stunned, extract data from him." She repeated once more her orders to the pearl.
He was shocked, and almost immediately fell off the wall Ina stunned state. He twitches on the ground for a around before turning back to his normal form, still stunned. The normal Zircon groaned. "Just...Just shatter me already..." He said quietly. He lie on the cold floor of the ship, not caring about what Obsidian would do to him anymore.
One of the voices in his head spoke to him. "Are you just going to give up, like a coward? You can't sit around and mope in this ship forever, you can escape. I know you can do it." The voice said. This voice sounded like Zircon's real voice but.. Happier. It was right. He planned something out in his head real quick. He would play the whole "depressed corrupt gem" to trick Obsidian, while he tried to plan a way to get off the ship.

Of course seeing Zircon playing depressed managed to fool Obsidian enough to believe he had given up "Finally." She hissed, looking towards the shaking Pearl "Pull yourself together you worthless idiot!" she yelled at the pearl, who in return replied back "Y-yes miss Obsidian.." The Pearl once again pulled the same levers and whatever the console had. Drills and claws had exited out of the walls that Zircon was trapped in, the claws began to try and pin down the Zircon while the drills begun extracting the "Corrupted" virus from the host. ( This is what i got for now, sorry for making you wait but i am tired and i just wanted to see if we can speed this along.)
(Don't worry about it, I'm in a similar situation.) Zircon let the claws pin him down, acting is if he didn't care anymore. Of course, it actually hurt immensely when the drills started doing their thing, but he couldn't really show it. He wondered what Obsidian was going to do with him afterwards. He thought of three possible outcomes. A: She would shatter him, not needing him anymore. Or, B: She would keep him on the ship as a prisoner & lab rat. Or C: She would toss him off the ship, and release him. The most likely outcomes were A and B, more so B. C was highly unlikely, but still possible. He would have tried to think of ways to escape, but he was being drilled into at the moment.

As the drills begun their process of extracting the liquid virus from it's host. The claws that pinned down continued their protocol and continued to pin down the subject. While it is unknown for most gems who hasn't got any experience in the mechanical world, like Obsidian, it would be quite difficult for a beginner or novice to exactly know where is this corrupted virus was being sent to.
"Continue the extraction until he's dead or sucked dry, I don't care for either outcomes."She finally spoke once again and immediately she left the room. Leaving the pearl to continue the extraction by herself. Obsidian had other duties to tend too, such as asking a small favor to one of her associates.
Zircon had become numb to the drills pain, after they had been extracting the virus for awhile. Zircon, being a technician actually knew exactly where the virus was being sent. Of course, that didn't matter to him, really. A few minutes later, the drills had stopped. The odd black substance that was on his limb enhancers was gone.. And so were his limb enhancers. Another thing missing? The voices in his head. He was a lot smaller now. He looked up at the ceiling, and then looking at the claws pinning him down. He realized that they had been pinning him by his limb enhancers, so now his arms were free. The ones on his legs had been pinning him by his knees, so those were still stuck. Normally, Zircon would have had a reaction to the fact that his limb enhancers were missing, but he was a bit busy now. He summoned his saber, his gem glowing as he did. He slashed the claws pinning his knees, and the Pearl that Obsidian left in charge yelled for guards to come and apprehend Zircon. Zircon had to hurry. He sat up, and hopped off of the table.
Guards rushed into the room. Zircon didn't have time to look at what kinds of gems these guards were. There were three. Two of them were basically the same. One of them seemed to be their higher up. The only weapons they carrier were gem destabilizers. One of them swung at Zircon, who jumped back to avoid the attack. He slashed back with his saber, going for a diagonal attack- At least it was in his head. In reality, he was too dazed to focus on his strikes, and it looked sloppy. One of the guards hit his back as he swung, causing his form to flicker. Zircon poofed, his gem clattering to the floor. The guards carried his gem to his cell. Upon reforming, he had figured out what happened during the fight. He began planning his escape possibilities, and how he could get off of this ship.

"Ah yes, I see you tried to escape." Obsidian voice sprung from the walls of Zircon cell. "I wonder how that went?" She added, even she wasn't even present, you see the smug look Obsidian had on her face. "I wouldn't bother even THINKING of an escape, you're inside of my ship, and the cell that is holding you is specially made for corrupted freaks like you!" Obsidian laughed. "So why don't you be a good little gem and sit there until i drag you back into more 'experiments' with you. Doesn't that sound like fun?" With that said, the voice of Obsidian was gone, leaving the lonely Zircon in his cage until further notice.
((So i'm thinking about ending it right here, PM me if you wanna have you as the last post to be the ending of this thread.))
Melody: how are you doing? Are you going to make a character in here?

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
