"I would show more optimism if I wasn't trapped on Earth." Zircon said with a slightly lighter tone. "A.. Show?" He prepared for whatever was going to happen, as the rain stopped entirely, leaving only dark gray clouds. He looked around, balling his fists. The knot in his stomach came back, as he waited curious and nervous. His gem glowed just a little bit. He looked to where Mr. O was, then behind him, and then the rest of his surroundings. He kicked a rock into the canyon, waiting for what the tall gem with a top hat would do. He was still curious as to why he was here, but he figured now wasn't Ana amazing time to ask.

Mr. O stood still in his position for a few moments still pointing at Zircon, "D-... does he not see me? Or hear me?!" the tall gem thought as his arm dropped as Zircon spoke again, "Thats why your so dull?! Oh-hohoho!" He laughed as he began walking towards the gem. He wanted him to attack but he just stood their.... why? Was he really so down in the dump just because he was stuck on a back water planet?!
"FINE! I guess ill have to give you a reason to enjoy your time here! YOU SHALL BE MY NEW ASSISTANT! What could POSSIBLY make another gems time any better here then being forced to work with ME! You are SOOOOOOOOOOO lucky darling!" Mr. O's loud voice rang out threw the valley as he spun his whip around his hand, "As my new lackey! I COMMAND YOU TO SHOW ME WHAT YOU GOT!" He called out once more as he jumped back away from Zircon again ready for the gems attack.
Zircon's face turned from bored, to slightly agitated. His gem flowed bright, as he pulled his saber from it. He twirled it, doing a quick figure 8, he then got into a combat ready stance. He had.. Analysed this gem. Sadly with that uh.. Teleporting thing.. He was rather unpredictable. He just had to be ready to deflect or parry his attacks.
His light blue sword blade looked darker due to the clouds. All he knew is that attacking is what he wanted. As soon as he would attack, he would "teleport" behind him or something. But if he didn't attack, this would never go anywhere. He did a fake attack to Mr. O's left arm, but then quickly spun around and swing at his right leg.

Mr. O beamed with joy as he watched Zircon pull out his weapon... it was time to act and do things! What fun! The tall gem spun around quickly and posed, pointing straight up into the air with his free arm while his coat tail fluttered in the passing wind, "At last! Show me you WANT to be my lackey!" At this point he was almost just trying to get this technician fired up! He wanted to see what passion was behind this gems dull eyes... well... most gems have "dull" eyes compared to Mr. O's bright glowing white eyes much like small headlights.
He spun back around looking at Zircon in time to watch him charge towards him, Mr. O by no means had planned on standing still, watching Zircon, Mr. O began to almost dance as if waiting for an attack to come at him. Spinning to his right to avoid the swing the other gem took at his arm only to dip back with his right leg in the air just in time to BARELY avoid Zircons real strike, "Oooooh! My! Your a tricky one darling!" Spoke the tall gem as he spun around back on two feet again, "Surely thats not ALL you can do? Is it? Oh-hohohoho!" He calls out with a laugh still slowly moving around as if dancing, "This gem isn't bad with a sword... I should REALLY be a bit more carful here..." Mr. O thought to himself as he readies his body for another attack.
Zircon gripped his sword. He began a flurry of quick, yet calculated attacks to the gem's other limbs. The first attack was a diagonal slash to his left leg, the next was to his left arm, after that, a fake to his other leg, and then a real slash to his gut. These strikes were followed by 3 more attempted slashes to other various body parts He ended the flurry with a stab towards his chest. With every strike, he started attacking harder and harder. "I thought you would at least put up a fight, 'Grand Inquisitor'." He taunted, grinning. Dry lightning struck randomly, followed by the loud boom of thunder. The ground beneath the gems was still slick or muddy with rainwater, a few puddles around them as well. Zircon prepared for the gem to fight back.

Mr. O was having quiet a bit of fun with this gem! It had been AGES since he had to really fight anyone... he normally had others fight for him but when he did fight it was a sight to see, very few even seen him fight and even fewer have lived to tell, "Oh-hohohoho! What fun!" He called out spinning around quickly as he whipped his arm down making his whip reform into a cane once more.
He flipped his cane around as he held it more like a sword, his whip was more for him to be on the attack while he can use his cane to block and counter. Quickly blocking the first attack with a quick parry then another parry when he swong at his gut, "Oh-ho! You like to faint your attacks! My your a clever one darling!" The tall gem blurts out while swinging his cane about working rather hard to block the attacks coming at him. He jumped back away from Zircon to avoid his final attack, and slid a bit as he landed, "Oh my lovely... I dont fight gems!" He called out as he removed his hat with one hand as he held it out to the side.
"Gems fight for my glorious self! Oh-hohohohoho!" His laugh rang out threw the valley again, as he laughed a bolt of lightning came crashing down into his hat... its odd that their wasn't a single sound as his hat absorbed the bolt of energy, "Time for the LIGHTNING round!" He yells before flipping his hat up pointing the bottom towards Zircon as a bolt of lightning shoots out from his empty hat rushing towards the gem just as fast as he would come down from the sky.
As quick as the Lightning was, Zircon brought his blade up, pointing it away from him quickly. As the bolt of lightning hit the blade, Zircon grunted, and quickly swiped his blade to his right, redirecting the lightning that way. As the bolt tore through the sky, a loud boom of thunder followed it, until it hit a nearby tree, stopping it in its tracks. Zircon's arms shook for a second. He then shook his head, focusing on his target, with a determined look on his face, he leaped towards the gem, his blade above his head. Before he landed, he attempted a strong downwards slash using both hands to grip his sword. After redirecting lightning, he felt as though he had a chance of takin the gem down.

The gentlemen gem spun his hat around before placing it back onto his head, adjusting it slightly as if it was his crown. He watched with joy and clapped a few times as the lightning was redirected yet again, this time by Zircons blade! Mr. O was having a blast in this fight... even though he had not really attacked this gem once... holding back his power as he wanted to see what this gem could do... he found Zircon was talented with a sword even though the simple gem was a technician.
His grin only grew wider as he saw Zircon dashing towards him, standing still with one hand behind his back he braces his legs and raises his cane up with one arm to block the attack, his cane and Zircons blade had met with great force! Mr. O gave out a soft grunt as he tried to hold back the attack, "You'r making me almost have to attack! Good job darling!" He called out as he swong his free hand out only to try and slap Zircon across the face... not very hard but... a slap is a slap!
Zircon was slapped across the face. He grunted. "Really? A slap? I mean, you can warp through dimensions and stuff, and you decide to slap me? Whatever.. Let's just keep fighting I guess.." He then attempted to slash him a few more times, very quickly now. Before he was just warming up. Now the real fight started. He continued attempting to slash him, very quickly, 7 times. If hit, the attacks wouldn't hurt as much, but they would still sting. As earlier, he attempted to finish his attack with a stab, this time to his gut. He looked the gem straight in the eyes the entire time as he attempted to push him backwards with each strike. He felt rather determined for some reason...
Post by Grand Inquisitor, Mr. O on Nov 26, 2015 6:46:48 GMT
"Oh-hohohohohohohohoho!" He CLEARLY enjoyed slapping him... something about being able to slap a foe mid fight just... appealed to him for some reason. "Yet... you have yet to hit me?!" If Mr. O had not taken the time to taunt back he would have been able to block all the hits but he stumbled back as his foot slipped a bit from the wet ground, he managed to block the first five slices that came at him with ease but the last two strikes grazed his left forearm and along the side of his face, cutting his cheek. His smile vanished right away after the slash across his face, his smile returned almost as quickly as it left his face.
"My turn!" Mr. O began his own flurry of attacks, slashing and jabbing all the while spinning around and dancing a bit, each swing aimed for either the left or right arm, while almost any time he jabbed he was jabbing towards Zircons face. The first few swings seemed a lot more intense and forceful before the attacks almost calmed down, not moving as quickly or with as much force. The slice across his face stung... he has yet to see the mark left moving down his cheek, if he were to find out that a slice was left he would be furious and that could mean being trapped in another dimension for Zircon...
Zircon knew what he had to do. Only had to do was just distract him, and then attack. He was thinking so hard, he almost didn't realize that the other gem was about to attack him. He barely blocked the first attack, before refocusing. With each block success after that, the sound of combat echoed throughout the canyon. He attempted to distract him by saying "Hey, you have something on your face!" If it worked, he would attempt to slash him across the gut, if it didn't he would have to think of something else.. He continued looking the gem straight in the eyes, like any fighter with respect. He waited for something to happen, hoping his distraction would work.

Rather enjoying this thrilling battle, Mr. O's eyes began to glow even brighter, almost leaving a trail as he moved. His energies were really flowing now, but he didn't want to give away too much of his fighting prowess in this little spar. When Zircon spoke Mr. O only laughed, "Its called being handsome darling!" Mr. O didn't skip a beat! Playing a smart mouth was most of his job, moving his cane up to block the upcoming attack.
Once Zircons blade made contact with Mr. O's cane, the cane broke apart into the whip form. Doing so gave way and the blade did run across Mr. O's belly but pulling his arm up as his goal was to have the whip wrap around the blade tightly. If this happens he grins as the combat halts for a moment, and before he tries to pull the blade from Zircons fingers he would quickly try to slap the gem across the face once more... mostly as a distraction but also.... he found slapping this gem entertaining and he wasn't sure why.... it even filled him with determination some might say.
"Oh 'darling', I meant your new scar." He said, not knowing if that was a good idea or not. To late now... As Mr. O's sword turned into a whip, he slashed his gut, but quickly after the whip wrapped around his blade. He quickly let go of the handle, knowing his sword would desummon soon, and he could summon a new one. But for now he was unarmed. He ducked the next slap, then dashing backwards to wait for his next action.. He was curious as to how the gem would react to his earlier statement. Seeing as he had the chance now, he attempted to resummon his weapon. It began lightly sprinkling once more, rain drops falling onto his visor.

Mr. O stumbled a moment, his smile almost vanished completely as he reached a hand up to his face and ran a few fingers over his scared face... his eyes grew dim for a few moments and he refused to speak until, "My new....." His hand dropped down to his side, his head turned up with bright blazing white eyes. He turned to the close by wall and broke into a blazing fast sprint, each step almost launched him off the ground until he leaped up onto the wall and shot up it a few years before jumping from the wall now high into the air.
Without a word he began to perform a blurry of slashes with his whip, each motion of his whip launched a lash of bright white energy towards Zircon. The lashes were moving very fast and in very high numbers, if a single lash were to hit it would sting rather bad but if hit by more it might be quiet painful.
So far Zircon's day hadn't been going well. This was the metaphorical icing on the metaphorical cake though. If he only he could be, you know, like 5 feet to his left, he had thought to himself as the lashes started coming. And then it happened. He was 5 feet to his left.. Did he just.. Teleport? Well that was new. While he teleported, he swore he had a glimpse of some other dimension.. Not the point. He was out of harms way for a second, now was his chance. He quickly jumped up towards Mr. O, and unleashed his own flurry of attacks on him. One attack after another. Behind him the energy lashes hit the ground, where Zircon had been standing. Now he felt slightly better about his day.
Melody: how are you doing? Are you going to make a character in here?

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
