Flurry had no missions today. As much as she loved to go on missions with her friends she needed some days off. She decided to spend her time near the temple. The beach was nice that time of year. During the summer the water was warm and corruptions were less common. She often went for a swim. Today however, she was content to play in the sand. She started to skip across the sand carelessly humming happily to the beat of her steps.
She tried to avoid people laying on towels, as she kicked up a fair amount of sand. She quickly became tired and tempted to use her cloud to float but that would draw in too much attention. She instead went toward an ice-cream man's cart nearby.
"One chocolate please! " She said, paying and happily accepting the desert. "Thanks mister! "
Earth, such a place where some gems come and never go from, today was rather peaceful the sun was out shining it's glistening tags into the shimmering ocean. Many humans of different nationalities roamed this time of year in large groups, since summer was around the corner tourist surely were going to be at the beach frequently no doubt.
Blue Quartz would be coming from the ocean as she had some shells in a netted bag in her grasp, she would start to pull the bag the more she moved, water drenched from her face and hair, she would then let go of the bag twisting her large curly hair letting the water fall off so quickly. Good thing her visor scanner was water proof, she would then kick the bag of shells into the side of some rocks to save for later continuing onward on a stroll of her own.
From a distant she could see a board walk which immediately she thought of Sulfur, as they would meet here a few times in the past for some missions, Blue then would head further past the temple. Suddenly she would see a familiar face however even though she was walking infront of her, the size, the color was recognisable indeed, it was Flurry.
Blue widened her eyes at the sight of her, she hasn't seen the gem since she knocked her away when they were capturing another of those crystal gems, she wasn't like that anymore though she only attacked crystal gems not out of recklessness however out of reason know, those weaker than herself won't be attacked unless ordered too. Blue would then pounce upwards doing a front flip and landing infront of the little one gracefully as he dress flapped and settled as she landed," Long time no see my dear, well back then those times were rather bad.." she'd say softly in her sapphire like good.
Flurry gasped in fear and took a few steps backward. This gem was someone what she knew. The Broken gem... Blue Quartz! They had met briefly, but it was an encounter that Flurry would never forget. She didn't know how to react. She was all alone. True that the temple was nearby, but it wasn't like the gems could see her. It was only her and this Quartz. She stared at the quartz with a look of bewilderment.
She could either fight or flight, those were her options. She decided to fight, she could probably take a quartz or two! Or so she thought. She glared and charged.
"I will defeat you Blue Quartz! " She yelled heroically. She leapt toward Blue's legs and started gnawing them...menacingly! It didn't even hurt.
Blue Quartz would then reach her hand out to let the little gem yet she became startled by her presence, as Flurry took a few steps back she moved her arm back to her side. Blue Quartz would then narrow her eye as Flurry started to somewhat nibble on her leg; well that's what it felt like, all Blue would do it lift up her leg while chuckling at Flurry," Are you done yet?" she said. Blue thought of her as more of a mascot for the Crystal gems rather than a warrior, maybe her abilities just meant for her to be on the back of the action instead of the front lines, she would then swing her leg back and forth to try to get her off without hurting her just yet.
Flurry continued to gnaw at her furiously, determined to fell the evil gem.
"No! I will not be done until you are defeated! " She squeaked. However, a few movements of Blue's leg were enough to knock her onto her rump. Her eyes widened as she hit the sand. She stood and glared at Blue Quartz. Summoning her cloud she floated up to eye level to continue glaring.
"What are you playing at Blue Quartz? Coming to the crystal temple to gobble us up!? I won't let you! " She said, with a serious tone. She crossed her arms and sat cross legged on her cloud. Her glare continued and she said nothing, trying to be somewhat intimidating. Occasionally her cloud would start to blow away and she would struggle to return it to it's intended spot.
Blue admired Flurry's determination in attacking her however her attacks needed some more work in which then she finally came to a conclusion, she shall help flurry with her combat skills to further improve her when she meats her enemies which is ironic as the broken gems were one of them.
Blue set aside that though since she knew homeworld may come soon, fighting with the crystal gems to protect something they both cherish is a wise tactic in which surely she'll speak with sulfur on that in a later date. As she fell on her butt Blue couldn't help it but to smirk at the sight of it, she then would see that Flurry summons that cloud again, the cloud could posses an advantage in stealth that is if it doesn't make any noise when moving, along with her having control over it," Flurry.. We may be enemies however I shall teach you the ways of combat, the way of protecting yourself, soon homeworld shall come and I will not allow this planet to crumble.. that is why I'm even speaking with you right.." she'd say softly.
Blue started to shake her head back and forth as she thought she wanted to goble up the crystal gems," Not even close my darling, I only defeat crystal gems that oppose as a hostile towards myself, I have reason know for my actions.."
Flurry looked at her with a confused look. She still tried to look intimidating as Blue Quartz spoke. She closed her eyes and crossed her arms, letting out a high-pitched grunt.
"I know what you're trying to do! You're tryin'a trick me! It's not gonna work! You trick me one...shame on you...you trick me twice...you're not gonna trick me again! " Flurry said, struggling even to speak under her difficult façade. "You are my enemy, and you wouldn't teach me to fight cos' it would be bad for you to do so! "
Flurry opened her eyes as Blue Quartz continued to speak. She didn't understand a word that Blue Quartz said, but they sounded kind.
"Uh... alright... but you've gotta buy me some frybits first. "
(Sorry for not posting soon enough I was cooking today!)
Blue Quartz would then chuckle a bit at the sight of her, she reminded her of herself when she first became a Head In the Quartz Division in one of White Diamond's moons, Blue used to be extremely menacingly evil yet she has kept her self calm for thousands of years lately. Blue then clapped her hands together as they made the agreement official," wonderful! It is a deal, come let's purchase these frybits you speak of" she'd say turning behind her to see a few shops while suddenly she would gazed upon the image of a red box with yellow fries inside which must've been what they were looking for. Blue would then extend her hand out, in indication that she wanted Flurry to hop on her arm and climb to her shoulder, Blue would allow it for now as she was her temporary instructor," Climb up." If successful she would walk her to the counter of the shop to purchase what she wanted.
Flurry crossed her arms and turned away, having expected the gem to decline. Instead, Blue Quartz agreed. Flurry giggled and climbed onto her back happily. They then bought the frybits that she enjoyed so much. She started to munch away at them happily, convinced that Blue Quartz was a nice gem. It didn't take much to convince her. She then curiously wondered what Blue Quartz would think of fry bits. She offered one to the gem, but started to talk.
"I really think it's super that you wanna teach me all these fighting tricks and stuff, but I'm not meant for fighting! I'm a support gem! " She said with a smile. "I can't summon my weapon even... I don't think I even have one. "
Blue would blink k as she was offered a frybits, she was up for trying new things beside try tried tea and loved it, as she took the offer from flurry she would then eat it taking a few bits and gulping it down, surprisingly she actually liked it," Quite an Interesting taste.. maybe some sauce would be even better with it but overall it's really good" she said.
Blue would then see that she was a bit concerned with the training," Why thank you, and I was made as a Soldier but look at me I'm a Scientist along with skilled with engineering.. don't belittle yourself to only one possibility.. there's an extensive number of them and who knows while we're training you never know that you could tap into your weapon, also you can always get one made by that Para, I hear she makes weapons.." she'd say while having her arms behind her back gazing upon flurry.
"Weeeeeell we don't have sauce, but there's always ketchup! " Flurry said with a grin. "That's this tomato stuff humans use. It works really nice. "
She then listened to what Blue Quartz was saying. Again it was a bit confusing for her to understand.
"I guess so... " Flurry said, not very confidently.
When she started talking about Para Flurry's eyes widened.
"Wait... how many of you know about Para? I thought she was like... super secret and stuff! " Flurry said. "It could be really bad for the crystal gems if she were found out... she's out only weapon smith. Also... weapons aren't really good for me. I can't lift heavy stuff... like even a small sword is too much for me to carry. "
Blue would then arch her blue bulge of an eyebrow and narrowed her eye at the frybits at the mention of some sort of sauce substance used to add more flavor to such an edible item," I see, I don't eat often enough to add a comment on if this tomato thing actually does give some sort of extra kick with these frybits but knowing you for a bit it must be true.." she'd say softly while clenching her palms together focusing a bit on the task at hand.
Blue chuckled a bit as she really seemed as if she didn't have any motivation in her," Look, you don't need to summon a weapon if it's a issue, you can use anything as a weapon, your words, your actions generally your mind but for you I'd say I know a perfect weapon for you darling, how about.. a sling shot" she'd say as it fits the components of her very nicely.
Blue then widened her eye," I'm not sure exactly if the others knows of her but I only know vaguely of the extent of her abilities not even alot simply that she can make weapons is all, don't worry I'm not sure if we're assigned to even attack you gems yet.. but till then let's just work on strengthening you all for the war" Blu said while walking over to the water, then she would glow her eye in a lime green variation rumbling the water in which then a giant ball of seaweed layered on one another in a spiral, she then would levitate it a few feet away from flurry," Your first task is on agility, keep up a decent pace away from the giant ball of seaweed and you won't be trampled, begin" she'd then start rolling the giant seaweed ball right towards Flurry direction awaiting for her to get running.
Flurry watched Blue Quartz in absolute wonder. Blue Quartz wasn't just suggesting that Flurry would fight with her heart or some nonsense that her friends would tell her. Not like she didn't appreciate being told caring words by her friends, even if they did mean nothing. She gasped as Blue Quartz talked about getting her an actual weapon. She scratched her head.
"That sounds super cool! ...but what's a slingshot? " She turned to see the giant ball of seaweed. She squealed as the ball started rolling toward her. "No no no no noooo! "
With many wobbly steps and high-pitched squeals she tried to stay away from the giant ball of seaweed. She could barely run, but had adopted a weird style of running. Her body sloshed back and forth as she took steps, giving her movements more power and allowing her to soar further. However, her body was bent forward as she ran to keep her speed from decreasing. This weird and hilarious-looking method of running seemed quiet effective. However, she quickly became tired. Her sloshing slowed and she turned around. The ball ran her over, shoving her into the sand. A quick squeal was forced from her lungs as it did so. Fortunately it seemed that she was alright, mostly in shock, but only barely hurt. She spat out some sand.
Blue couldn't help but laugh as she ran from the giant ball of seaweed, she was having some fun training this spinel for sure so far, as she got trampled by the seaweed ball and pressed into the sand she would then levitate the ball of seaweed into the air.
Blue would then head over to Flurry while extend her hand out to help her get up," Well done little one, your pretty good but theres always room for improvement even for myself" she continued" A sling shot is a weapon or toy for some used to launch items, it looks like this" she said while using the giant ball of seaweed and shaping it into a slingshot.
Blue would then revert the shape back to its sphere shape in which then she would walk away from flurry and back to her original location levitating the ball of seaweed a few ft away again," Now try again, and again, I won't be going easy on you as those others gems won't either so you must stay strong during this intense training as combat shall next" she'd say while then sending the giant ball of seaweed in her direction once more in the same speed she previously did.
Flurry's legs wobbled as she stood up and looked at Blue Quartz weakly. There was a look of confusion and pain in her eyes. She then smiled when Blue Quartz gave her a compliment, as if she had never even hurt her. Her smile turned into a curious look as she demonstrated what a slingshot could do. Flurry gasped and slapped her hands against her cheeks in surprise.
Flurry's arms sagged as she gawked at the massive ball of seaweed that started to roll toward her once more.
"Noooo! " She whined, starting to run. As she sloshed about she glanced back at the ball of seaweed. Suddenly she stopped. The ball continued to roll toward her, yet she didn't move. However, when the ball was about to run her over she darted out of the way. It seemed that she was attempting to do a somersault, but she simply flopped onto her face. She quickly got to her feet and continued to run, panting heavily.

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.
