"Don't worry, Mr. O, I'm not leaving. I'll be able to get out if needed." He said as he laid down in the hole he had filled with a purple fog. As he laid there, he listened to what was going on outside, and smiled as he heard the commotion start to pick up between Mr. O and the metal. Though he usually preferred other methods of entertainment, this one would do.
(OOC: I'm gonna have to make a split post here, as what Mr. O did will lead to two possible thingies.)
(If Mr. O is successful in tripping the metal) "Oh-hohohoho! What makes you think you have the RIGHT to IGNORE me?!" Spinel let a chuckle escape him, but made sure it was quiet enough so that it couldn't be heard. Maybe he would be needed up there in a minute if things got violent. And Spinel sure hoped it would get violent.
(If no trip) Spinel listened intently, awaiting more conversation from the Metal or from one of his two "Friends". Things might get pretty exciting pretty quickly.

"Are you.. Incomplete or something? Cracked? Or like.. did something happen for you to get your eyeballs removed? Because that just looks terrifying.
She let out a harsh laugh "Please do tell me how fake eyes are going to give me better vision that using my alloy core, my very existence if you will. Eyeballs are a choice that gems and metal can make when created. Since i chose to have my Alloy remain on my head i see no reason to use 'eyes'. Besides," The alloy actually started moving on her body,down her throat and onto her chest region. Leaving a blank spot where her eyes should be "Even if i move the alloy, metals cant do such mundane shape shifting" The small alloy moved back up again to the eye region as she pushed her glass back up her nose to cover it.
"Oh, and also, what are you doing here? I mean.. You're a metal and all. Whatever those are. And this is a gem location. Gem inhabited planet. Well, partly human too. Mostly, human."
"My mission is classified and none of your concern Side effect" She cut her off "I don't want to make friends,acquaintances,allies. I have a job to do and your currently inhibiting my-" And then She fell flat on her face,thanks to Oppalite.She seemed to linger their before standing back up "As i was saying" She seethed as she stood back up "I have a mission and if you rocks keep stopping it i'm going to have to resort to force." She glared at the hole full of vapour "and don't think im afraid of your counterfeit, knock off corrupted form" She began walking again, ignoring the fact that Opalite had blinked out of reality. "and tell that glorified glass chunk to leave me alone aswell, he not impressing anyone with this little act". Her smaller lighter finger seemed to remain open. The air all around her shimmering slightly.

"Bla bla bla! Darling.... you know... its rather bothersome when someone talks more then I do." His voice echoed out from the last location he was standing where he had tripped but the voice was moving, though it was distorted it was still clear enough to understand. "So how about this?! If you can answer my riddle ill let you pass!" while in the rift plane he waltz a but maybe a foot in front of this metal, "If you fail...." His voice grew heavy with distortion as the end of his words.
"I̕ ̸͘͟͡G̶̶͢E̵̷̸̡͢Ţ̷͘͡͞ ̧̀͝T̴̴̴͢O̢͘͝ ̛̀͜͝͝T̴̷̡̀̀R̢A҉̶̛͜͝P̢ ͢͏̨̕Y҉̛̛O̴͟Ų̢͜͞ ̕͝͠Í̷̡̕͢N̡̛͢͞͞ ̢͘͡͡A̷̧͜͡͝N҉̴̀Ơ̢҉́͢Ţ̕H͘E͘͝R̢͡҉̸̢ ҉͘Ḑ͝I̴̡͠͝M̨͠͝͝͡È҉N̷͟͞͠S̵̸̨̀I͏͞O͏̷̀N̷̶̶̢͟,̷̢̧̧ ̸̶̵͟F̢͢͜͝Ó̸͢R̕͢E͠V̵͟͠͠͝E̸͢͞Ŕ͡!̶̀͢" With the blink of an eye Mr. O shifts out of the rift plane and into the material one directly in front of this metal, his voice was heavy with distortion and had an echo to his own voice with each word that passed his lovely lips. His eyes looked like bright white suns locked onto the alloy before him, a giant smile crossed his face that had an almost sinister curve to it. His own demeanor seems to have shifted from happy and eccentric to a bit eerie and borderline creepy.
"Do we have a deal, sweetheart?" With his cane in-hand behind his back, his extends his arms out for a handshake.
((Rules to the riddle... I have one in mind that I know without looking it up, so no looking up the answer to it! Thats really the only rule...))
Vanadinite rose an eyebrow. "Really, O? That seems a bit brutal. What if she like sucks at riddles, no offense. Oh well, I suppose she IS pretty rude. And there won't be any hurting, atleast physical. So eh, I guess I'm okay with that." she said, shrugging. She decided to stay out of this for now. She was intruiged to see what the riddle was, perhaps even she knew the answer. This surely was a fun encounter.
Never would she think that metals would be real. And the fact that they have no eyes, that just creeps her out. So much harder to read their emotions that way. Oh well, not like it really mattered. She might be trapped in some kind of dimension apparently that O is in charge of, forever. Then she won't meet this metal anymore, most likely.
"Those people you hurt, they were bad people, so they deserved all they had coming for them."
As he continued to listen to the conversation, the Metal's blabbering began to irritate Spinel. "... And don't think I'm afraid of your counterfeit, knock-off corrupted form." A wide smile crossed his lips, and he began to laugh once more. "Bla bla bla! Darling.... you know... It's rather bothersome when someone talks more than I do. So how about this?! If you can answer my riddle I'll let you pass! If you fail... I̕ ̸͘͟͡G̶̶͢E̵̷̸̡͢Ţ̷͘͡͞ ̧̀͝T̴̴̴͢O̢͘͝ ̛̀͜͝͝T̴̷̡̀̀R̢AP̢ ͢͏̨̕YO̴͟Ų̢͜͞ ̕͝͠Í̷̡̕͢N̡̛͢͞͞ ̢͘͡͡A̷̧͜͡͝NƠ̢Ţ̕H͘E͘͝R̢͡҉̸̢ ҉͘Ḑ͝I̴̡͠͝M̨͠͝͝͡ÈN̷͟͞͠S̵̸̨̀I͏͞O͏̷̀N̷̶̶̢͟,̷̢̧̧ ̸̶̵͟F̢͢͜͝Ó̸͢R̕͢E͠V̵͟͠͠͝E̸͢͞Ŕ͡!" Those words made Spinel decide that it would be a good idea to get up out of the hole just in case he was needed.
He stepped out of the hole, standing at a distance from the Metal, and prepared to summon a chakram in case he was going to be needed. "Really, O? That seems a bit brutal. What if she like sucks at riddles, no offense. Oh well, I suppose she IS pretty rude. And there won't be any hurting, at least physical. So eh, I guess I'm okay with that." Spinel laughed at that remark, and looked to the Metal. "Oh, don't mind me, I'm just here in case you try to start a conflict."

The situation was getting rather bothersome for the metal. The three gems seemed to act as a group trying there hardest to pry and hinder her path and she hated it. Honestly she was only half listening when Opalite issued the ultimatum, and Spinel's comment about being there if conflict arose made her stifle a laugh aswell.
"Fine, whatever" She replied dismissively, to Opalite "Walk with me" She said as she slapped away Opalite's hand and started moving again. "If i solve this you leave me alone" She reinforced "If i don't solve this you can try and fill out that empty threat" She let out her own sinister smile. Idling around Earth she had dedicated a decent amount of time to researching gems. So she was far more informed about gem races than with the gem in her company thought.

The glorious Mr. O was pretty much ignoring everything that either Vana or Spinel had said or even done, his eerie grin still unmoving, his giant eyes locked onto the metal. His body was rigid as he awaited the response he wanted to hear, "Fine, whatever." "Walk with me.". The tall gentlemen gem fought the urge to slap the metal across the face as it smacked away his hand and continued to walk past him, "If I don't solve this you can try and fill out that empty threat." this made Mr. O smile even brighter some how.
"Oh-hohohoho! You don't know how deals work do you darling?! There will be no try... if you guess wrong, I WILL banish you forever!" He gave a small wink to the metal as he spoke, walking next to the metal. "An IRON horse with a tail of flax... The more the horse gallops, the LONGER its tail becomes!" Mr. O quickly steps infront of the metal once more holding his hand out, "Take my hand.... and give me your lovely answer!" O was beaming with pride at this point, he awaited almost on his tippy toes.

"An IRON horse with a tail of flax... The more the horse gallops, the LONGER its tail becomes!"
She didn't bother with even touching his hand as she found this entire 'game' pointless.She was well aware of the power of information, as such in her spare time she researched information about the other creatures that inhabited this planet. Both organic and non-organic. So although she kept her distance she was quite well vested in humans customs and the strange way they spent there short lives. So after a short pause she managed to recall a version of a similar riddle and the answer that she had found with it.
"I assume that is derived from some sort of human folklore" She began "And with that in mind it seems like the riddle is referring to some sort of sewing implement. A iron horse referring to its control point, and the 'flax' the cotton that is wrapped with it. A thread and its needle in modern human terms. The further it is pulled the more of its string is unwound. At least that is a rough translation of the the answer to the version i heard" She answered "Ijzer lood en staart van vlas , hoe verder de ijzer leidt hoe langer de staart drives. Was the first iteration I heard."
"Anyway,can i leave now or do you wish to still pester me" She asked impatiently.
((This is not meant to be interpreted as the thread starting to draw to a close, i'm sure that the three of you can find someway to still follow the metal. After all, the conditions of the riddle was letting her past, not ceasing to follow her if she did pass.))

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
