The Sky was a beautiful color, it had just rained and it was about Dusk. Birds chirped happily in the area but other than that, it was completely silent. The wind began to howl as it blew by. A powerful corrupted gem was reported to have surfaced by the sky spire. The Sky spire didn't seem that all in danger, In fact it was at it's prime.
The sky spire was built onto a large floating stone. It was composed of mostly a staircase that wrapped around the stone. The staircase however had walls and a ceiling that looked pleasing to the eye. Obsidian warped in, ready to poof this corrupted gem, a chance to prove herself. She looked ahead of her, she had a little bit of walking to do before she could reach it.
She hopped from rock to rock, nervous of falling. Nothing below her was visible other than clouds. The Sky spire was very high in the air, thus giving it's name meaning. Suddenly her feet slipped and she started to fall off of the side of the rock she was currently on. She frantically grabbed at the grass growing on the rock. Holding on for dear life she struggled to get on top of the rock, it was a losing battle, Obsidian gems weren't made to be strong, they were made for stealth missions. Her grip slowly weakened.

It was nice weather for flying, thanks to the rain the air was really fresh and pleasant and the skies had such a beautiful color. Chip was flying for some time, looking at everything from the bird's point of view. He heard, that there should be a really nice sky pillar thing in the skies somewhere around this area, and he wanted to see it, so far, he was unable to find it.
It took him some time to finally find it and it was every bit as spectacular as he thought it would. He flew around it to see it from different angle when he saw someone hanging from one of the rocks... and it seems like that person is going to fall... he quickly flew towards it... it was some gem lady... and she was about to fall... he quickly summoned his lance and threw it right under her, so she could stand on it...

Chip smiled at the gem he just saved from a really nasty fall...
"Hey, no problem... I was just flying by and saw you had some... trouble... I'm Chip, the Rising Phoenix, the Eternal Flame and protector of Empire city."
He introduced himself. Was this the Obsidian Morion told him about? The one who tried to kill her majesty's White Diamond's Televisor, the obsolete Satellite? He should probably be careful, just to be sure...
"You really should be careful around here... without wings this could really be a dangerous place... though fascinating... I lovee it. It's very elegant... though I have no idea what is function of this place..."
He shrugged. Chip could be really chatty... especially when he was interested about something... and this place fascinated him.
Obsidian smiled at the gem and gave a quick diamond salute. She rubbed her chin as if pondering something.
"Chip? Hm... can I call you Phoenix? You said you were the Rising Phoneix, right?" She asked. "So you've been to Empire city? You've met Morion right? He would be hard not to meet in his own city!" She smiled again.
"Well you see, I'm here to eliminate a corrupted gem. It kind of looks like a Chinese Dragon, if you know what I mean!" She said, realizing he probably didn't. "Well, I know a lot of human stuff so you probably have no clue what I'm talking about. Anyway, what brought you here? After the corrupted gem too? Or some other business... You could just be passing through I guess"
Post by Chip the Fire Opal on Nov 2, 2016 21:37:24 GMT
"I prefer being called Chip, that's my name... Phoenix is just a title... and yes, I came from Empire city, I could hardly protect place I never been too, that would just be silly... and yes, I met Morion... you have a lot of questions, you know that?"
He said, since he was mostly honest and straight as a pike... "I am here just to check this place out. I heard it was quite beautiful and I wanted to see it. And from what I saw so far it really is quite impressive. I haven't heard about corrupted gem being here... and Chinese dragons are quite spectacular... but fighting one could be really difficult... especially for someone, who can't fly... but if you want to fight it I would like to watch, might be interesting."
After all seeing dragon hunting with one's own eyes... who could resist...
Obsidian's lips pursed together awkwardly when Chip told her that she was asking a lot of questions. She agreed in her mind, she did ask a lot of questions.
"I've fought tons of monster phoe-I mean chip!" She said putting her hands on her hips. "I Fought a mole thing, a polar bear thing... dozens of others but those two were the most notable this week. I can totally take a dragon! Just to be safe you could watch and then join if it's too tough. So.... did Morion ask you to check this place out?"
Obsidian said, starting a conversation. They had a bit of a walk before they would reach the dragon. It would be best to have something to talk about.

"Well I fought a lot of monsters before too..."
After all there was the worm creature... the living mansion, the transparent eel... and the possessed injector... and... well that was probably it...
"Nah, Morion don't probably even know I am here... though what do I know... perhaps he is tracking my every move, he could do that I guess... so are you the lady Obsidian who tried to kill her emergency, the exhausted Opalite? Allegedly..."
He asked straight away. He didn't care about the Opalite... but he wanted to know, he was quite curious after all...
"I might help, if the dragon would be too much for you, but I guess you have that covered... then again I may help just because being a dragon hunter is awesome..."
Obsidian's face flushed and the color seemed to drain from it. She gawked at his question and stood completely still, frozen in shock.
"What!? I don't have any 'Lady' title and I haven't even had a chance to meet Opalite, let alone attempt to MURDER him!" She yelled in shock. "In fact I'm trying to find him so that I can get closer to my Diamond!"
She took a deep breath and calmed down. They proceeded to walk forward, at the beginning of the spiral staircase.
"No... I am not the Obsidian you're talking about, and I`d gladly help get rid of her." Obsidian clenched her fist. "Yeah being a dragon hunter is awesome!"
She giggled and smiled at the thought of being a dragon hunter.
"It's silly of me to think Morion would need my help in tracking down this other Obsidian" She mumbled. "It would be nice though"

"Well, that's good you are not her... otherwise I suppose I had to fight you or something... and that would be... weird... since I saved you just a moment ago... so... sorry I guess?"
It might have been slightly rude to ask her this question... then again it was legit question... if slightly unusual. "So... let's go and get ourselves a dragon... it could be fun. And possibly mortally dangerous... but mostly fun."
He said. After all fighting a huge dragon gem monster might be dangerous, but he was the rising phoenix, the eternal flame... no dragon could defeat him... hopefully... "Well... Morion is Morion... how do you know him anyway? I'm just interested..."
Morion never talked about other Obsidian then the murderous one...
"Oh well... I was in Empire city to pick up some food... You don't eat food do you? Well anyway I was just stopping by, a normal thing for me. So I was at a disco party, a human thing I do... and he met me there. I asked him if he could help me meet Opalite after he told me who that was and then...well this Polar bear monster appeared." She said, walking up the stairs. "Ever since then I've been trying to repay him for saving me from it. He gave me a mission to go to Mexico but I haven't got down to that yet. How about you?"
They were almost at the top of the stairs, almost to the dragon.
Post by Chip the Fire Opal on Nov 3, 2016 20:21:14 GMT
"Well... I don't exactly eat food... since I have no taste it's really useless. The only thing I do eat are cookies... I like the texture of them. So sometimes I eat..."
He admitted. He decided, that once he got home, he would eat all the cookies in the whole building. Perhaps Morion should start to order them in tons...
"Well, when I first met Morion I was being squeezed to death by giant work monster. He poofed it and saved me... since them I work with him... but if he sent you to Mexico you probably should go there... oh and why do you want to meet Opalite? I meant Her Majesty's, White Diamond's Grand Inquisitor, his excellency, the exalted Opalite"
"Well heh... if I couldn't taste I wouldn't eat at all! The fact that you eat cookies because of their texture means that you would probably eat a lot if you could taste!" She said smiling. "Oh well, that's nice" She said in response to his meeting of Morion.
"I am headed to Mexico, the train doesn't leave for about three days though." Obsidian's face fell. "I'm not sure, but I think White Diamond... my Diamond... abandoned me here. Morion told me that If I want help, he's the best source! So I'm determined to find him!" She said doing a quick fist-pump.
They had reached the top of the tower. There was a beautiful crystal floor, it was indeed a very nice tower. Suddenly Obsidian jumped into the air and landed on a large stone. Fire blasted right where she had been.
"I think I found the dragon Chip!" She yelled.
It was indeed a Chinese dragon-like monster. It was red with a blue 'mane' and it had only one eye, it's gem. It flew toward Obsidian. She pulled her trusty shovel from her gem in an attempt to knock the creature back but it was a lot faster than it looked. It coiled around her until she couldn't move her arm's or legs. It then got prepared to bite her head off...literally.
Post by Chip the Fire Opal on Nov 3, 2016 21:30:09 GMT
"I guess that now, when I'm whole again I could shape-shift some taste buds, but I don't know... it feel like it's unnecessary... so I probably won't... and I'm sure that your Diamond didn't abandoned you here... they probably had some terribly important things to do... "
He said, though he thought that Diamonds were jerks, and they just weren't important enough to be saved... or wiped out. "If you try your best there is no reason you shouldn't succeed."
It sounded like a terrible cliché, but he meant it. In the meantime they finally reached the top, only for Obsidian to be nearly charred.
"Yeah, no kidding! EAT FIRE MONSTER!!!"
He yelled at the dragon and sent a wave of fire his way. If he wanted to play with fire, he would oblige... strongly... at least it should distract it...
"If you like fire, you will love this!"
He summoned a lance and threw it right in the dragons head...
It flew into the air straight toward the fire, releasing Obsidian. The dragon gulped down the fire making a strange gurgling sound. It watched as Chip hurled his lance. It then unleashed a burning blast of blue fire. The force of the blast was so strong that it deflected the lance straight toward chip. Fireballs rained around the area from the intesnse heat of the blue fire. The dragon swung it's giant tale and slammed Obsidian against the staircase. She blocked with her shovel, reducing damage to herself, but she wasn't entirely unscathed. The dragon's focus was on Chip now. It lunged toward him extending it's entire body. it opened it's mouth, full of teeth, reading to bite into it's prey.

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
