Mr. O had calmed himself down after hius flurry of attacks in time to see something... Zircon did something that made him feel a disturbance in the other dimension if at anything for just a flick moment, "Hm!?" As soon as he dropped to the ground he vanished in a blue blur avoiding Zircons attacks. He disliked using his rifting abilities in combat as he saw it as being rude but what Zircon did was something else all together.
"Oh-hohohohohoho!" His laugh rang out once more threw out the valley, his voice still slip as if two spoke at once, "That was rather impressive dear! Do that again!" the voice called out. Whatever it was that Zircon had just did caused Mr. O to forget about the battle, he wanted to see if this was another dimensional crossing gem! It was rare to find another gem who could comprehend dimensional travel... even if it was for only a moment.
"Rude.." He mumbled to himself. Upon hearing the voice of Mr. O, he complied. He thought to himself that he wanted to be 3 feet to the right, and he popped out of his own dimension, and into the other one for less then a millisecond. He appeared where he had wanted to be. "Is that it then? We're just.. Done?" He said, a bit annoyed because of this. His teleporting would take about 20 minutes to regenerate again. He waited for the gem to say something, but before he could, he asked. "What's your name..?" He waits for a reply once more, genuinely curious now. He looked around, looking at the wet, muddy environment. He looked to where the gem had been a minute ago.

Mr. O watched as Zircon flashed threw the rift plane if only for less then a moment, "How interesting..." He mumbles to himself, stepping out from the rift spinning his cane around as he did so, "Oh yes deary, you have proved yourself capable of server under me." He said in an almost smug tone. "I do owe you that yes? My name is Opalite, but PLEASE, call me Mr. O!" bellows out with a bow, his hat staying in place floating in mid-air until he stood up straight again and it slid back onto the top of his head.
Taking a few steps closer and places his free hand onto his hip as he thought for a moment, "I must know... for a technician you are very skilled with a blade, how would a gem such as..." You points towards Zircon spinning his finger clockwise, "Yourself come to have such... passion with a blade?" His smile still ever present across his face, bright glowing white eyes locked onto Zircon... still rather hard to tell what he is looking again most of the time.
Zircon's sword desummoned as he threw it up about an inch into the air. It disappeared in a small, slightly blue, dim flash of light. "Alright Mr. O, it's actually quite simple. Practice. Of course, because I'm practically immortal from age, I had much longer to practice then I would if I was a human." He seemed a little more optimistic and happier then earlier. "So, what's next.. Mr. O..?" He said, a small grin on his face. He seemed to like talking about his swordsmanship or something. "Can I just call you O instead? Mr. O, while formal, seems a tad too formal, especially in this situation." He asked, waiting for a reply.
The rain had completely stopped once more, and now dark clouds loomed in the sky, flashes of lightning struck within the clouds, and rumbles of thunder followed. "Wonder what happened to the corrupted gem that poofed me.." He mumbled to himself. He awaited a reply from Mr. O once more, before saying. "Oh, and my name is Zircon." He said, waiting for a reply again.

"Im aware of how ageless we are darling, no need to explain this to me. Though just threw practice?" He wondered if this gem has seen combat, there were gems that didn't fight and would most likely have time on their hands to spent time doing something such as training as much. Could be totally wrong but this was his first guess at this gem, "Next? Why we!... hmm... that is a good question isn't it?"
Turning to think a moment as he flicked his wrist as his whip snapped back together and he leans onto the cane form for a few moments before spinning back around to Zircon, "Oh! O? Yes that also works if you must..." He was fine with a less formal tone to his name but its not hard to tell that being formal was a thing oh his. "Zircon the ship tech! I remember, also... I have not been on this planet very long. I know your a loyal subject to our glorious home!" He took a step closer to Zircon still smiling brightly, "So can you tell me what you know of this planet? And the random cell of gems about on this planet?" He was rather blunt here, his tone was less outgoing then normal but this was information was was needed and Zircon was the easiest person to ask as of now.
"Yep, just practice." He said, repeating what he said. "Oh, this planet is well.. So far pretty terrible. I haven't been here very long either, but I've noted a few things. Firstly, it's populated by beings known as.. Humans. I also noted that 'human' is some sort of nickname for their real name, Homo Sapien. Anyways, this place is full of odd things like.. rain, snow.. Other stuff. ..Random cell of gems..? Never heard of them. I'll tell you one thing though, which is that their tech is absolutely TERRIBLE. They have these weird devices, that allow them to communicate through voice, but they can't even talk to people in space! That's just 1 example of their archaic technology." Zircon explained. "Anyways. This cell you speak of.. They must be the reason that the Warp Pads are broken... Well at least I know who to blame." He said.

Smiling brightly the tall gem watched Zircon explain what he knew of the planet, he knew of the humans but not that they used another name for their real one, oh how? As he didn't know what snow was he had put two and two together with the rain. If snow was anything like it he had very little interest in it, as when he failed to know anything about this cell of gems Mr. O felt slightly sadden... he didn't want to just ask random gems about it.
"This was all very good information... rather useful stuff! Our main goal is to sniff out these evil gems! If we meet any it would be a wise idea to capture one... t̨he͜ń̷͢ ҉I҉ c͘óul͘d̡.̢́..̸" His tone grew rather dark and sounded distorted as he spoke, the air around him even changed slightly for a moment, his smile faded and his eyes grew dim... then as if with the flip of a switch he seemed all bright and happy again! "Planning! Oh all the planning we have to do!" He called out clapping his hands together joyfully, "Oh! There is one... last... tiny... little... matter..."
He turned to face Zircon and held his hand out for a handshake without saying a word, the moment Zircon grabbed hold of his hand his gripped grew tight and he cocked his arm back quickly before unleashing a powerful slap across Zircons face with enough force to send the gem flying. If Zircon indeed had taken the full force of the slap Mr. O would shout out after, "THAT'S FOR TOUCHING MY MAGNIFICENT FACE!" with an almost blind rage behind his glowing bright white eyes, also in a striking pose pointing at Zircon.
Zircon went to shake the gems hand, and was then slapped about 8 feet away. He groaned in agony on the ground for a minute or two, before saying "Y-You're the one who wanted to fight..!", and then laying down for another minute or two. He got up, rubbing the part of his face where he was slapped, which I would say is red, but since his skin is blue, I guess it's just a slightly darker blue or something. Anyways, he pulled his hand down from his face, and walked back over to Mr. O, before saying "Well.. now that you had your 'vengeance', lets find whatever and where ever this cell of gems you're talking about is." He said curiously. He wondered how long they had been here. He crossed his arms, a little agitated, but otherwise, fine, waiting for a response like normal.

Clapping quickly out of joy Mr. O smiled as he placed both hands onto his hips, "Indeed! Though I really just wanted to see you get fired up! I was not thinking you would be able to touch my impeccable face... I may have gotten a tiny bit carried away there darling." Mr. O watched Zircon step closer to him... part of him wanted to slap the gem again... why? He had done nothing to earn Mr. O's wrath this time... "Maybe he just has a slappable face..." He mumbles to himself before nodding to what Zircon says.
"Indeed! The cell of random gems... now being your my new lackey, I can tell you the whole quest! Well... most of it anyways..." His voice drifted off softly as he spoke before perking up again, "The gems! I believe they were calling themselves something to do with crystals... the information I was given was very limited but... finding the right information is my job!" Mr. O paused for a moment and turned away from Zircon has he glanced to where he had came from, "To find one of these gems... the town might be our best bet! Coming with?" He asked holding out his hand again to the gem, "I swear no slap this time!" In his mind he was fighting the urge to slap him again. If Zircon took his hand with a quick wink from Mr. O they would both be pulled across into the rift plane, a light blue reality that looks just like the normal world but void of... something.
Zircon hesitated to grab the gems hand for a moment, but after about a moment he reluctantly took his hand. Is there can look around the round noticed something, but this was the place you saw when he teleported, if only for the fraction of a second. "Wait, I know this place. I saw this place when I teleported." He said, curious. He thought about these "Crystal " people. He wondered how they got here, and why didn't want to go back, and why they were fighting, and a bunch of other things.. But mostly? He wondered if they were going to be hostile towards them, if he had to get into another fight already. He thought other things as they went through the realm as well.

Mr. O covered his mouth for a moment before letting off a slight giggle, "Oh-hohoho! I'm not surprised darling!" Mr. O though being a rather odd gem the one thing he seemed very wise to was to how dimensions work, "You see... what YOU did by teleporting is your body moved threw dimensions to get to where you wanted to be! Im only guessing here but..." He paused for a moment for dramatic effect, "The reason you were able to see THIS plane of existence is that this realm is almost like... the very next page to the material one!"
Mr. O explained as he gave a quick spin before stopping and looking at Zircon with his normal giant smile. He turned back towards the way to the town, "So... now that your in my glorious dimension... maybe its time to make our way to the town?" He asked as he kind of wanted to travel back to the town to start the hunt for a rouge gem.
"Yeah sure.." He said not questioning O's theory of how he teleports. He followed Mr. O through the realm, looking at the void around him, curious how they were walking on the void.. He kept his mouth shut though. While walking he tried to boot up the tech inside of his visor. When it didn't work the first time, he took it off, revealing his true eye color, which had slightly darkened from the visor. He touched the visor with his finger, which opened up a small, holographic diagnostics panel. "At least that still works.." He tinkered with some of the settings in the holo-panel, before exiting the panel. He touched a small, metal panel, which was unseen when worn, and it opened up, revealing small technology inside of it.
"Oh, there's the problem.." He said, reconnecting a few wires, and then pushing something back into place. He touched the panel again, and it went back into place. "Should work now.." He mumbled, putting the visor back on. As he did, the metal piece cloaked itself. The visor flickered to life on the inside, showing diagnostics, as well as a bunch of other HUD things. "That's better.."
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
