Chip just made the lance disappeared before it could hit him. Them he slowed the fire down enough so he could escape it easily. He was the Eternal Flame, he couldn't be hurt by fire.
"Nice try you giant lizard..."
He shoot into star like an arrow, easily dodging the giant serpent. With so much free space around him he was in his element.
"It is obvious that this contest cannot be decided by our mastery of the Fire, cousin... but by our skills with weapons..."
That wasn't that good... the dragon was huge, with claws and teeth... but perhaps he could use that against him? After all Chip was quicker... more agile... it was worth the risk...
He stormed against the dragon, but tried to keep himself away from it' jaws. Quickly flying around it, stabbing it from different angles. With some luck he would confuse the creature enough for Obsidian to strike... without some luck he would end up as dragon snack...
The Dragon was surprisingly fast, turning right and left gaining ground on Chip. With every movement it got closer, Chip was faster but not by a landslide. The Dragon didn't show any sign of exhausting, but the flinching it made upon being stabbed showed that it did in fact get wounded from the lance. It wouldn't last much longer though, eventually the Eternal flame would cool down... Obsidian noticed this and rushed for the dragon. He jumped on top of a stone and with all her might swung her Shovel. The Dragon slapped her backward with it's tail, hitting her hard. Although Obsidian didn't even touch the dragon, it was now wide open for an attack. It's eye, It's gem was focused on Obsidian now.

This was one hell of a battle, the dragon was terribly quick... Chip was still quicker... but not enough to mean a lot. Still, he was able to wound it several time, even though only slightly. Thankfully, he was not alone in this fight. Obsidian attacked the dragon, and even though it didn't seem that she injure it, she got it's full attention.
Second lance appeared in his hand... he used his wings to get speed and holding both lances before him he crashed into the dragon, stabbing it with both his lances at the same time.
"I said look at me, you flying bastard!"
He stabbed it one more time, just to get it's full attention and, once again, give Obsidian enough time to do something... he couldn't do this indefinitely. But he was sure he could evade it for some time... not long, but hopefully long enough...
It worked, the dragon roared and turned toward Chip. It grabbed him in it's jaws. The force of it's jaws was extremely strong, too strong for most gems to withstand. Suddenly Obsidian ran up the dragon's body and wedged her shovel into the dragon's mouth, holding it open. She held the shovel in place as it tried to use it's tongue to get rid of the shovel.
"Quick! Go for the eye! I`ll hold it for as long as I can!" She yelled, struggling with the shovel. If she were to let go of her weapon, the Dragon would swallow her!
"It's probably going to move! Hurry! Before it knocks you off it!"
The dragon's tail moved toward them, in an attempt to knock them off of it's body.

He underestimated the dragon and got almost chewed to death by dragon's giant jaw. He wanted to summon his lance to pierce his head from inside, but obsidian was quicker.
He just nodded, quickly get out of dragon's jaw and pointed his lance on dragon. "Eat fire!!!"
Dragon could be fireproofed as he wanted... but getting a blast to eyes wasn't exactly pleasant. Dragon should've been blinded for now and Chip didn't plan to let him recover. He took the lance and once again threw it, but this time right in the dragon's eye. Hopefully it will give Obsidian the time to escape. Before he could pierce his second eye he got hit by the tail... it was quite a hit, but not enough to poof him...
(It has one eye) Obsidian fell out of the dragon's mouth, ready to land in a boss pose on top of the spire. She bellyflopped and fell face-first somehow at the same time. She recovered and sat down crossing her arms grumpily. She could never pull off a boss trick.
The lance went deep into the dragon's eye, it could have dodged, but the fire blocking it's vision made that impossible. It managed to hit Chip quite hard before it was poofed. He was hurled toward the spire. At the speed he was going, he was in jeopardy. If he hit the spire at this speed he could be shattered. Obsidian would have volunteered to catch him, but at the speed he was going this would have been stupid.

This could have gone a lot better... Chip was doing his best to slow his fall, but it wasn't working all that well. Right before he hit the ground he used the wings for one last strong gust which did slow his fall considerably. Still, he made several nasty rolls backwards, stopping pretty rapidly over some rock...
He was bruised and battered, but he held his form... even if barely. He quickly got on his feet, but once he found out he did poof the dragon he fell right back at the ground. He needed few moments of rest, before he could do anything else.
"That went well, right?"
He asked, still laying on the ground, not moving. But he was successful dragon hunter now and that meant a lot to him.
There was a long pause, Obsidian was taking in what had happened. She had a goofy smile on her face, like a kid that had too much candy.
"Heh...ehehehhe" Obsidian chuckled. "We're dragon hunteeeeers...." She was lying on her face but her voice wasn't muffled for some reason. She flipped over.
She suddenly realized that she had forgotten something. She stood up quickly, walked to the dragon's gem, and bubbled it. After sending it off she turned to Chip.
"Well, thanks for the help! That was nice, I doubt I could've done it without you Chip!" She said smiling. "I'm gonna head on home now. Where do you live by the way? I live in Jersey, it's near Empire City"

Chip finally gathered enough strength to sit up, it took him a while, but he succeeded.
"Yeah, we are dragon hunters... or dragon slayers? That sounds cool too..."
He laughed a lot, it was just too good of an adventure. Too bad Obsidian took the gem, he would love to have it home as a kinda souvenir. What could be done... he was still the one who slew the beast, but he couldn't do it without Obsidian...
"No problem at all... it was fun... but next time you should be more careful... you would fall to your death before you could even face the dragon... and the dragons was too powerful to be taken by one gem... why did you risk so much?"
It wasn't exactly wise...
"Well I have tiny room in Empire city..."
He said. Well perhaps it wasn't that tiny, but it wasn't exactly giant either...
Obsidian sat up in unison with him. She felt the wind, it was relaxing.
"I think Dragon Hunters is cooler, Slaying is just so...so.... mainstream" She said. "That was fun....."
"Be more careful? I didn't know what it was like, I fight monsters all the time, that's probably the toughest one I've met so far." She said, turning to him. "Well... often I feel like if I fight really hard I`ll get better at it. You see, us Obsidian gems aren't made for fighting... but I have to prove myself to my diamond..." She mumbled.
"I think after my Mexico mission I`ll get a room there too!" She said smiling. The sun was setting.
"Well I'm gonna head off... goodbye now!" She waved. "See you around, most likely we`ll meet again since we both sometimes visit Morion's tower"

"Dragon hunters it is then! What gem was this I wonder... taking such badass form even when corrupted... probably some quartz knight... since those are especially tough..."
He was still quite proud to take the beast down, it was surely the most powerful he ever fought. So far at least... he had this funny feeling that he will meet even stronger foes...
"Well I must admit I know very little about what gem is good for what... I have no idea what was supposed to be my function... so what are Obsidians for? I mean shovel isn't exactly something I would expect from a gem... I would expect more like some earth displacement laser gizmo..."
"Oh... well good luck then... I should return home too..."
Obsidian rubbed her chin, contemplating this. It must have been a very powerful gem, she decided that she should think about this in the future when facing corrupted gems. It seemed she had been fighting normal gems until now. She had this funny feeling that she would meet even stronger foes...
"Yeah.... he must've been a pretty macho guy..." She murmured. His next question caught her attention. "Well... there's a reason my Diamond abandoned me here. Obsidian gems are meant for stealth mission... but does this shovel scream stealth? No... it doesn't so my Diamond left me here..." She said quietly.
"That is why I hunt down these monsters... If I can't do stealth maybe I can learn to fight? Well... I'm not improving. I don't think I`ll ever be a warrior..." She said, looking at the ground. "Thanks for the help though, at least I can pretend I have something to work for..."

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
