Obsidian's phone alerted her of something. She realized that one of her reminders that she had set was being activated. She had forgotten to visit Amber at the glass city! She sensed that Octavian and Carbide were talking about something private, she felt that for now at least she should leave them be. She quietly exited the room. after a while of searching the tower she located the warp pad. She grabbed one last bowl of wasabi ramen, it was sparse at Jersey. She continued to step on the warp pad. Spreading her arms she was enveloped in the light from the pad. Back in Jersey, she had to catch the metro, it was the fastest way to Amber. She rushed down the street as fast as she could, in hopes of finding her friend. (You two continue without me :3)

The heavy scout was already by the glass front entrance of building, holding the door open, and a cigarillo clenched in her teeth when Octy finally caught up to her, she had heard her call after her but did kind of want to get a bit of distance from the group and the whole dog and pony show of that building before she resumed talking.
"Sorry about that, wasn't trying to worry you there Octy, all the close proximity and voices and.. grrrr...gets a bit much for a gem who is used to being rather more on her own, or at least having more space. I know youre smitten with that quartz up there, but.. rrrr, just be glad you don't have a touch of the empath about you, knowing what goes on in someones head because theyve told you is one thing, but feeling it like a sick gut or an over wound spring is quite another.."
A solid quarter of the cigarillo disappears into glowing red embers in one drag, and is let out slowly from her scent sponge, seeming to be a bit more collected now.
"Opalite and I have been dealing with something of our own, a mutual friend is missing, has been for awhile, and we are starting to get a pretty good idea of who might be the architect behind it all, but we don't know what exactly has happened to this gem, but we think a run in with some sort of gorilla like machination of gem tech and earth materials that made an attempt to drive us into the ground like fence posts, has something to do with it. It's worrisome.. not many things get back up after I hit them, much less with a recoil pile driver from my weapon, and this thing still managed to get back to it's feet and run off. Face looked like a flattened hubcap after that hit though at least, and it was leaking and hissing and sparking all over the damn place.."
Octavian nodded and smiled when he caught up with Carbide "I'm not smitten with him, but I can understand why you might get angry." He sighed and listened to Carbide's story, somewhat troubled at what he was hearing. None of it sounded good at all, and he wanted to help. "I see...that really is quite troubling. I can understand why you're worried, you're one of the strongest gems I know....I know you're probably not going to like me asking, but I want to help. If this...thing, is as strong as you say it is, then you're going to need a real powerhouse. Not to say you're not one, but come on, you're friends with a berserker...take advantage of your connection here" He smiles softly, showing that he's willing to do whatever it takes

Carbide seemed to bubble under her surface for a moment then lets out a huff and a nod, the stressed expression worn about her eyes seeming to fade into a more relaxed and somewhat happier state. She was pretty helpless around that good-guy, good-gal facial expression that Octy seemed to wear so well, regardless of presented gender, and at her core she was thankful for real.
Taking a step forward she scoops up the bloodstone in a firm and socially awkward bear hug, right in the entrance of the building, blocking the way for sure, but ultimately heedless of the glances and cocked eyebrows of the humans that walked by, or shimmied sideways in an attempt to get into the building.
"I know, I know..I'm too stubborn for my own good. I think I'll take you up on that offer, its been my experience that when you dont quite knock a machine to scrap and let it get away, it seems to come back, with thicker plates, bigger guns and a nastier attitude. Guess I'm trying to say, youre right. I dont know whats coming my way further down the line in this little mission with Opalite, and.. while he IS good in a fight in a more... mnyehhh.... elaborate, nondirect support sense, your experitese up close and personal are the best Ive seen. Youre better than me by a home world mile, and as much as it pains me to admit it, I could use some actual hand to hand practice myself... crossing my fingers and hoping I can tank a hit ... which I usually can...is not the most wise of strategies, in the end."
With seeming reluctance, she releases her grip about Octy's middle and sets them back down on their feet, hoping she didn't smoosh anything too hard, just now.
Howlite: It is good to be back

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
