Bloodstone blushed heavily when he heard Morion singing. He looked over and sighed, shaking his head "I told you! He always pops up whenever I'm not expecting it, like that!" Octi gestured back to him before turning back o Obsidian and shrugging "Well you could probably do some work for Morion on the side for one. I'm not sure what jobs are open in the City but I'd imagine that since Morion has sort of been around the area for awhile that the humans are more comfortable around gems than some others might be" He shrugged as he took a bite of his pizza, looking down at the Ramen Obsidian had "So what does that stuff taste like? I never thought to try it"

In the mean time, Carbide had returned from her 'bombing-run' of the buffet table with a heavily laden trey, a loaf of fresh sourdough bread under her arm and her free hand holding a pitcher that she mercifully relieved the drink cart from. Meal in hand she plops down on the opposite side of the booth that Obsidian and Octy had perched themselves in, just in time to catch the last verse or two of their benefactor's balladeer-ing.
"Hmm, I really should make use of this place a little more often.. heaven only knows whats gonna change for this world, the humans and the gems here, from both sides, once one or more of the Diamond's arrives... Ah! I see you've glimpsed Morion over there, making ducky faces at that microphone. Heh.. judging from how Octy gets all dreamy, id say they have more than just noticed him up there. " She gives Octy a little teasing bop to the knee with her boot, under the table then proceeds to acquaint herself with her trey, that appeared to contain about half the contents from the whole sushi section..
"Ramen is pretty good.. but this sushi stuff in all it's variety and glory just about tops the whole works for me! And yeah, I guess you could do some errands for Morion, but try to stay clear of his illegal human dealings, more trouble than its worth, but that's just my opinion."
The Smoky Quartz was in his humanoid form, ut not Gem "armor" He was a tall ('Quartz tall^^) Gem (but not bulky like a Jasper or Amethyst, his kind was slender) with long grey hair and silver eyes. It was evident, he was wearing real, human clothes, - black silk suit - Italian with maching shoes - shirt, tie and cane. - it wasn't his projection, since the shirt and vest hided his Gem. His skin tone was a bit grey...ish, like the smoke, but he could pass as a caucasian man. After the song, he noticed - well he noticed them before - the Gem trio With a smile The Assassin walked to them
"Greetings and bienvenue... Obsidian, I see you are healed. Bloodstone... Carbide..."
He nodded wit a polite smile that was warmer for Bloodstone^^
"Nice to meet you again... you know you are always welcome here!"
Morion was the first gem she had met in a long time that had helped her for no identifiable reason, so taking all of the favors he did for her felt wrong. "Oh! Hey Morion! So...I was thinking since Opalite kind of drifts we have no idea when he`ll show up. In the meantime I want to do my best to, y'know repay your hospitality. Is there anything I can do to help out the tower for the time being?" She gave a diamond salute. "I can go on missions to hunt down corrupted gems if you'd want, or anything else that you need here. Is there anything, anything at all I can do? It wouldn't feel right for me to just take all of your favors and do nothing to pay you back..."
Octavian returned the bop and glared "I'm not being 'dreamy' although I'll admit, it's always good to listen to him sing. He's one of the better ones that I've heard." He sighed and went back to eating before looking up at Morion as he walked over. Bloodstone rolled his eyes and couldn't help but smile a tiny bit up at Morion "It was somewhat convenient for you to be singing right when we were about to walk in. Any particular reason that happened..?" He tilted his head curiously but smiled and looked back at Obsidian "She's practically just as eager to Opalite as you are to work with him...well, in general Morion. Not gonna lie, I'm pretty impressed for some reason"

Carbide smirks to Bloodstone as her chopsticks deliver another volcano roll to her mouth.."Oh,I think I overheard him say its something he put in the water..." The heavy scout trails off into a soft titter before dabbing her upper lip with a napkin and lifting her pitcher somewhat, and with it, making an acknowledging gesture towards Morion and giving an actual polite nod, if that can be believed.
"If Opalite hasn't shown himself soon, I'll head out and get his attention myself, I won't claim I understand it, but we always seem to find each other, since coming to this world. Although he could be standing right behind me making faces for all I know, but I haven't smelled or tasted BLUE around this complex at all so far. If you've been back and forth to his rift plane as much as I have, you can literally start to smell and taste the energy of that place. Sounds nuts, but you CAN smell and taste the colour blue, from that energy, sorta lingers like Ozone after a lightning strike.."
Her chop sticks dance about once again, clacking like an old time Earth typewriter, as her trey gradually becomes more and more barren..."Hmm, maybe Obsidian would want to come with some time, unless Morion is worried I'll be a bad influence." Her face crinkles with a grin and a wink.
Obsidian simply stared as Carbide described Opalite's "Rift plane". Unsure of how to react while she described smelling and tasting energy Obsidian continued to eat her ramen. When Carbide reached a part about tasting the color blue Obsidian lost her appetite. She discreetly pushed the bowl away from her as the gem discussed coming to meet Opalite. However, the noise that she was making with her chopsticks was somewhat rhythmatic. Carbide would make an excellent DJ, at least Obsidian thought so. Then Carbide Invited Obsidian to come with her to meet Opalite. She wasn't particularly in the mood to smell and taste blue but she figured this was the easiest way to get closer to him. "Uh yeah! sure!" She said, before she was even asked. "Bad influence?"
The Smoky Quartz slowly nodded with a smile "My dear Obsidian.. I am not your superior. We are Gems, we need to help to each other! I helped you because you were a Gem in need! A Loyal Gem that is... a Rare sight these days."
The Assassin picked up a glass
"But IF you want to help me, to pay back.. and you would feel better if I ask something in return for my help? I supose I can. Maybe you could help to take that Fountain from the Crystal Gem Rebels... or if the Layals, our Home can't have it, help me to destroy it, so our enemies would be without an inportant healing place! But... I think my dear Bloodstone wouldn't like that... am I right?"
He smiled to Bloodstone
"And Bloodstone.. it was just a coincidence, don't worry. Fate!"
Morion winked, then turned back to Obsidian
"I guess my Humans could use a little help... securing trade rutes, eliminating competiton, and stuff like that... but a captured Crystal Gem or Monster would be nice too! I am not picky^^
The Smoky Quartz smiled "Aaaah yes, Carbide and her influence... I am not worried. My trust in you and Bloodstone is absoulte... "
Obsidian was confused at why the Diamonds would even consider destroying the Fountain. She was willing to do anything to repay Morion, but taking it back from the crystal gems seemed like an extreme feat. Fortunately Morion decided that Bloodstone wouldn't like this and it would be better for her to do other jobs. These Jobs suited her ability better.
"I don't really know how able I am, I used to be good at stealth missions but then again, you know why I can't do those anymore. I'm not picky either, and if I was I wouldn't be in any position to be. Assign me to anything you want me to do! I`ll try my best!"
Obsidian turned to Carbide. A confident Smirk was on her face.
"When you leave to find Opalite count me in! I think My Diamond would be happy to hear about the collection of corrupted gems I have!"
She was about to summon her weapon dramatically to strike a pose but then thought better of it. Her weapon, the shovel, was an extremely useless weapon in her opinion. Showing it to Carbide would probably result in a loss of trust. Who would take some random gem to waste time in front of their Diamond? She instead struck a pose without her weapon, looking a bit corny.
Bloodstone rolled his eyes and sighed as he looked up at Morion. "Fate suuuureee seems to intervene with us quite a bit. I swear it's more than just the lady of fate herself. Are you sure you're not doing anything?" He smirks up at him and thinks to himself "In all honesty, I feel like I should meet Opalite myself at some point. He seems like a gem that I could use as an ally if nothing else." Octi stood up and patted Morion on the back, looking down at Obsidian "Make sure she doesn't get into trouble, alright? Obsidian here is quite the dedicated little worker for the diamonds. I think she should be of good use to you...somehow"

Carbide sets her pitcher down, now empty and tidies up about her trey, although hardly a speck was missed or wasted by the heavy scout, despite not having a true need to eat or drink for that matter, but even things like periodic naps, she found boosted her morale and cleared her mind.
Seeing Obsidian strike a pose, she ponders it a moment until it dawns on her..."Hm, not a bad pose Obsidian, although it looks a little like you should be holding something in your hand though."
A soft wink from her eye and she stands up from the booth and stretches out a bit, her behavior remaining casual, but in truth, doing a bit of an empath sweep, detecting the usual spookiness from Morion, and the warm core that Octy possessed, but also a bit of nervousness and trepidation from the new Obsidian gem. She would have to try and find out a bit more from her, but gently of course.
"So what now? Are there any other parts of the tower you want to see Obsidian that we could help you with, or perhaps any tools or supplies you need? Or is there anything else you want to talk about? I almost get the feeling you're a teensy bit concerned about something."
"I hope Her Majesty's, White Diamond's Grand Inquisitor, his excellency, the exalted Opalite returns to us soon... We need his guidance in these trubled times! And with that... Fusion's arrival - his eye twitched, but remained calm - who is Her Majesty's, Pink Diamond's Herald... we need Her Majesty's, White Diamond's Grand Inquisitor, his excellency, the exalted Opalite more than ever!"
Morion rubbed the bridge of his nose with closed eyes but then rested on his cane with a sigh and smiled warmly to Bloodstone
"It was just Fate... trust me dear! And I am sure everything will be okay! And Her Majesty's, White Diamond's Grand Inquisitor, his excellency, the exalted Opalite not just an ally! He is a leader, a sage! A mentor!"
He nodded "Don't worry I will watch over Obsidian... But if you excuse me there are several things that are need my attention. I will send you one of my Humans Obsidian with a list, but I think escorting a shipment from Mexico and protecting it would be the best job for you! Lately several Monsters appeared in that area... better to safe than sorry! But I will send you the details of your mission! Welcome in our team Obsidian!"
Morion patted the Gem on the soulder, and after a nod left them
Bloodstone walked up to Morion, talking about Opalite. She wasn't listening, trying to look good without her weapon, but then his conversation caught her attention.
"Obsidian here is quite the dedicated little worker for the diamonds. I think she should be of good use to you...somehow" He said.
Obsidian put her hands on her hips and squinted her eyes.
"Eyyyy...what do you mean somehow?" She said, pretending to sound offended in a joking sort of way. Carbide then suggested that her pose would be better if she was holding something. She had seen through the façade! Carbide then offered to give help by showing her places in the tower and answering questions. This made her think about telling Carbide why she actually was concerned but she thought better of it again.
"Concerned? What makes you think that?"
Then, Morion gave her a mission. It was some sort of escort mission, it sounded like something easy, for her at least. She gave a diamond salute, grateful that he would trust her enough to watch over a shipment.

Carbide returns from turning over her trey to the cafeteria staff, arriving just in time to catch the tail end of the conversation between Obsidian and Morion..
"Well, If it's all the same to you kids, it seems like you've got your own daring missions to do, so I suppose I'll go and track down my own personal dangerous quarry, that being our friend Opalite. Ive got a hunch or two as to where her may be, so if I find him, I'll deliver him a bit of an update so to speak, I know he has been working on something rather.. important.."
Carbide's eyes cast downward and a quiet huff escapes her lips, to most it would seem pretty casual, although the keenest of eyes might notie that she had stopped herself from saying any more. She wasn't too keen on having any extra meddling hands, gem or otherwise, in this business of figuring out the nature and identity of their mechanized assailant from earlier, and She was worried for Agate too, wherever he was.
Following the flicker from her eyes, she moves off from the table somewhat, casting a glance to Octy.."I'll be on the ground level for a bit before I go, if you need me before our respective clown show/train wrecks get underway here.."
Octavian blushed as Morion walked off, shaking his head and sighing "I highly doubt that fate had anything to do with it." He smiled and looked down at Obsidian "You know I'm just kidding.I feel like you could be a good help to the Homeworld alliance. Now um..if you'll excuse me for just a minute, I'd like to catch Carbide before she heads off..." He noticed how she looked a bit..well, it wasn't the normal Carbide that she knew. "I'll be in the building, don't worry." Octi hopped up and followed Carbide down to the ground level "Okay talk to me, what's wrong? You know you can trust me..and I know you enough to tell something's off." He looked genuinely concerned for her, worried about one of his best friends
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

*The "corruption" is being treated like a virus due to lack of info about it on the show.
*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
