After crashing on this planet escaping a prison from home world Tiger Iron tries to find her place and away from her tormented and twisted past. She has been living in a run down broken ship crashed near the arctic. Her current and only friend has been a small fox like creature she has called Snowy. Little does she know she is being hunted by home world gems who want a reward for bringing her back to her prison.

(Notice: Earth-Neutral is like my half between of the side of Earth and Neutral. They aren't fully neutral, but they aren't a full crystal gem, but they work with them frequently cuz they r allied with Helenite who is a CG, but isn't in this yet)
((Alright I'll start off with the first post here but I will probably be gone for most of the day.))
The wind was howling and there was a scratch at the door. Tiger Iron had been lost in her thoughts for quiet a while in her ship and had forgotten she wasn't alone anymore. She blinked a few times and turned to see Snowy, she had reformed her Ice paw and was scratching at the door.
"If you go back you know they'll just hunt you again, but... I really shouldn't hold you prisoner," Tiger solomly got up. She had never really be around gems and what she had done before coming here was something she'd never want anyone to know about.
Snowy whinned as Tiger opened the door, "What? Aren't you going then?" Tiger asked curiously but Snowy choose to stay and headed jumpped up where Tiger Iron had been sitting before. She chuckled.
"I get it, you don't want to see those guys who where hunting you before," she shrugged, "I can relate."
Ammolite had been busy, she was working on capturing a gem monster. She'd followed a couple of Tracks that led her up to the arctic wastelands, Ammolite shivered and turned a whiter color of blue, "Better activate my stealth mode, hey are you guys coming!" She turned to the other gems who where with her, "I think the Yeti gem headed out here."
Rubellite paced in annoyance on the dock of the ship, she was a bounty hunter and normally worked alone but Yellow Diamond wanted a few gems to go after this one. What was the big deal about this gem anyways. She wondered who would be coming along on this mission. She gazed down at the screen.
"Let's see here, Wanted: Tiger Iron, Crimes range from theft, Destruction of Property, Kidnapping, Destruction of high gem technology and...Oh...Torture and Murder? Looks like this gemstone has some sekeltons in her closet," Rubellite was reading the report outloud to herself.
Zultanite smiled. "How ironic. If sponsored by the diamond and with a different target, that could almost make her qualified to be a bounty hunter herself." Zultanite smiled and tugged on his hat as he searched the horizon.
Jet, trying to follow Tiger Iron's trace, finds herself almost lost between all the snow and the wind was making more difficult to see. She tries to create a shield with her legs enhancers, but they're not working very well because of the weather.
Jet: (in a sarcastic voice) Ugh, dammit... who sends me to find this gem by myself?! Oh that's right... NOBODY!!! But I had a team, of course... a team of weaks soldiers that fell down with just one hit!... When I find that brat, I swear...
Galena-Calcite sees Sphalerite hiking (super smash bros style freeze frame), and points it out to Impactite, and subsequently walks to them. "Hey, you ok over there? It sounds like there is a beast over in the distance, you wanna come with us against it? Safety in numbers." GC offers this politely, avoiding pointing out that they were alone directly.
Zultanite laughs at Geodes statement. "Oh obviously. We are more powerful, and there are more of us."
"Well, now see here, if we're so high and mighty among this gem, then why are there so many of us? If they're so weak then why not send less of us. There are a good number of us here, so obviously this guy is a deadly threat, you and I both know that."
(Little note here: I'm gonna take out Mystic Quartz. Thnx)
Impactite catches up to Galena-Calcite as he looks at Sphalerite. Impactite starts hopping up and down. "Let me guess. You led with the fact that you could protect them over the fact that I can move you all a lot faster and keep warm?"
GC looks to Impactite and looks to the snow. "One of these days they will come for what I offer at first. If only that day was today..."
Zultanite looks to Black Opal and smirks. "Alternative that is more likely: Hidden variables. There is more than just capturing this gem, or more threats along the way. Thus, we would need multiple teams or extra people for the other mission who would be able to parasite off of the others work."
Onicolo was walking through the snow, with a shivering Vermeil in their arms. They were also freezing, but they were trying their best to keep Vermeil warm. They looked down at her, and saw that she was trying to fully cover herself to keep warm. Onicolo held Vermeil close to themself and started talking. "Don't worry... I'm sure we'll find someone who can help us soon..." They both jump as they hear the roar from the Yeti.
The Yeti appraoched Tiger Iron carefully and the fox in her arms began to whine. The Yeti seemed to calm a bit and looked at Tiger Iron. Tiger Iron sighed she noticed a gemstone on this one as well. Located on his stomach. She wasn't an expert but it definantly was a Quartz gem.
"Uhm are you looking for somewhere to hide too?" Asked Tiger Iron and Snowy looked up at her curiously.
The Yeti nodded and looked a bit excited. Tiger Iron smiled and put Snowy down heading over to a maitenance bay door, "Well you won't be able to fit in the main hatch here, but I think the maintenance door is still working."
She has no idea that other homewolrd gems had began to lock onto her area.
"Yeah I got the info, Is this all of you?" Asked Rubellite she seemed disappointed that Ice hadn't gotten assigned with her this time. This was the Arctic after all, this was Ice's home, she'd be stronger here, that Tiger Iron wouldn't stand much of a chance.
"Age slows the mind, I'm sure she's gone soft by now," Rubellite said.
"Okay team, let scout out, I could swear I heard the Yeti over here," Ammolite called pointing in a multiple of direction as the wind blew sudden and hard, "Who knows what he's capable of.... or she there's girl yeti's too right?"
Zultanite looked around. "I think so. Though i heard that last minute two more gems were added on to the mission, though i dont know what team they are on." Zultanite casually summons a small figurine of a humanoid with four wings.
Galena-Calcite sees Sphalerite coming towards them and motions to impactite. "Might as well go ahead and make it easier for them."
Impactite grins and does a quick backflip, radiating purple kinetic energy, she then motions towards sphalerite, and the purple energy comes towards them quickly dissipating into the air as thermal energy, creating a tiny heat wave to bring it up to about 70 degrees farenheit for the short distance.
Onicolo makes their way towards the ship where they heard Tiger Iron, and the door closest to them was the maintenance door. They held onto Vermeil with their left arm, and knocked on the door with their right hand. "I-Is anyone t-there?" They shivered.
Jet spies Onicolo from the distance. She still can't see Vermeil in her arms, and also she takes a look of the maintenance door.
Jet: This must be her hideout... Oh, checkpot! I find the criminal before anyone else! Altrough, for a tiger iron she looks pretty... dark and... colorless? I hope the scientist of my group was right and there isn't any more gems in here... If not, then I'm not sad that she had been defeated by that beast...
Jet: What in the world...? A corrupted gem?! Well, I heard that she liked defectives, but... geez, rumors are true! Tiger Iron is some kind of twisted caretaker! I'm going to be so famous if I caught her!
Jet slowly approaches Onicolo, summoning her sickles and still hiding.
The sickle lands dangerously close to Onicolo, making them flinch and fall back into the snow. They stare at it for a moment in shock before quickly running to another side to the ship, hoping they would find another entrance into the ship.
Onicolo keeps running around the ship away from Jet, abd they accidentally go in front of the Yeti. They gasp and hold Vermeil close as the take a small step back, knowing that they can't run back because Jet was trying to attack her.
"Uh... Could you p-please give us somewhere safe to stay...?" Onicolo asked Tiger Iron, hoping she was talking to them and Vermeil. "I'm k-kind of looking for a safe place where I can keep Vermeil safe from Homeworld..."
"Vermeil's not really an... 'Ideal' Gem for Homeworld... She escaped from them when they tried to shatter her, and now I'm trying to keep her safe. She's a great friend of mine, and I don't want to see anything happen to her," Onicolo told Tiger Iron. "We're trying our best to get away from them, and I figure they won't follow us out here."
"I get it," Tiger looked down at Snowy as she curiously looked at Vermeil, "This gem was hunted down by some human who would've shattered her, and this guy, well not too sure where he came from," Tiger examined the Yeti Quartz who seemed to be more relaxed now that they were inside the ship.
"I'm not really the best gem to seek refugee with though..." Tiger Iron shift uncomfortably. This gem obviously didn't know she was a escape prisoner.
"I can't wait to see the look on Rube's face when we capture that gem before her team even lands!!" Ice laughed as the Blue eye landed in the artic somewhere. "Besides this mission will be even easier since I am ice." Ice laughed happily.
"Quiet, were here because Blue Diamond wants us to find them gem before the others do. Not because of some stupid rivarly, friendship, relantionship, or what ever you two have." Lodestone rolled her eyes and opened the hatch of her ship.
"Rainbow-sama!!!!"" Cuprite called while riding on Yellow Calcite's back in the air "We're back!"
"We didn't have much luck searching for the yeti, the clouds are dark and with all the snow visibiliity is bad from the air, so I thought we would join the ground team." Yellow calcitelanded next to Ammolite.
Zultanite rolled his eyes. "And of your little icy friend is here? Would you set their efforts behind by melting their playing field?" His figurine flaps its wings, and the wings melt together into one larger pair, and the figurine rapidly grows into a hawk-sized creature. It goes out through a hatch and surveys the area
Galena-Calcite gives a grin. "Yea, you must be a phytokinetic, huh? Yikes, do you see those meteors in the distance?" He points to the two eyes as he walks towards the ship.
Snowy sniffed Vermeil cautiously. She backed up a little but still Curious of the dragon like gem.
"I'm...Tiger Iron," Tiger hesitated she wasn't really sure if she should give out her name. She looked out the window and sighed.
"What...Ice is down there?" Rubellite didn't know that Ice would be down there she seemed to calm down a little. She crossed her arm and looked at Galena-Calcite. Rubellite didn't like Calcite's but looked towards where he was pointing.
"Let's get to work then." Ice climbed out and stretched on the Ice shelf, as she moved piles of snow reacted to her movements. "I forgot what being around natural ice is like, since there is so little on homeworld. Alright lets find this gem." She looked around, it was a big place, but she was right at home in the artic, perhaps too at home, she had some bad times here.
"Alright Ship is locked down, only I can open it now." Lodestone said before removing her hat and picking up a small gemstone. "Alright Bo-mate, come on out!" She tossed the stone up and Högbomite (Pokemonboy3000) formed. "Go have a look around! Find us a nice gem."
Högbomite screeched and took off, scouring the area.
"I did spot a couple of caves from the air, maybe it retreated into one of them, I know I wouldn't want to spend to much time in this weather, it's bad for your roots." She pointed to her hair.
Zultanite's summon circles the area, and senses a lot of gems near a ship in the distance, and flies towards the area.
Zultanite looks to rubellite. "Well, yea, they are part of the last minute team. I think. Oh well."
Galena-Calcite shrugged and looked to Sphalerite. "You're probably right. Wishful thinking I suppose."
Impactite looks over towards the eyes. "Yea, it's falling way too slow, and the trail behind them isn't dust and it's not breaking apart. That's a designed object. Either way, cover is the best option."
"Hahaha yeah your right Cal," Ammolite pointed to a cave, "Let's go!"
Snowy tilted her head curiously and looked over at the sleeping Yeti.
"Nice to meet you," Tiger smiled and pushed her messy hair back to look at the two corrupted gems, "I've never seen anything quiet like them. Snowy seems to be damaged though, if you look at her gemstone you'll see there's a chip, your little friend seems like she's in good condition." Tiger flinched suddenly and turned away from Onicolo and she rubbed her gemstone.
"Oh. So this is where. I got my question answered I guess," he states, promptly surveying the surroundings. "Devoid of life and civilization, perfect place for hiding," Opal then draws his rapier, "Give me the word, and I'll go into action."
Tiger Iron shook her head and her bangs fell infront of her eyes once again, "I don't think shattered would be the right word," Tiger began, "But they are still trying to track me down and bring me back to homeworld."
Snowy wasn't sure what to think of Vermeil and she looked at her paw then over to Tiger. She fluffed uo her tail and took refuge under a chair and watched Vermeil carefully.
"Yeah well what do you expect," Rubellite stepped out of the ship as well and glance over at Black Opal, "What word do you want? How about Get to Work already then?" Rubellite said sarcastically. She really didn't work very well with other gems and got annoyed with them easily. But this place gave her memories of the past. If she saw any humans she'd be sure to fry them to pieces.
Zultanite leaves the eye and looks around. "Since we are a team, does that mean we have to work together, or can we just meet back here to leave?" His summon flies down to him and dissapears into sparks.
Galena-Calcite heads towards the two eyes as well, with Impactite rushing forward to see them.
Under the window Onicolo was looking, Jet was sitting in the snow trying to hear everything they were talking about. She felt embarassed after fleeing and was hoping to collect more iformation from Tiger Iron.
Jet: (whispering) So that gem isn't Tiger Iron! I can't be that dumb, of course she isn't Tiger Iron! Two gems and three corrupted gems in there... I don't have a chance. Better keep listening...
Yellow Calcite and Cuprite followed the group heading towards the cave. "So after we capture and bubble the yeti, what's next on our agenda?" Yellow Calcite asked certain that catching this gem wouldn't be too hard.
Hogbomite flew around and began searching for gems after flying she spotted Jet. "Screah!!" She screaches and begins to share sight with Lodestone.
"Bo-mate found a gem, not the one were looking for tho...Hmm we should still check it out, but it's a bit of a walk." Lodestone explained to Ice.
"Walking? Seriously? Use your imagination." She formed an ice disk underneath her and Lodestone, and began to surf over the snow quickly. "This is how we travel! It's like sledding but deadlier."
Jet sees two figures coming near, altrough she couldn't see a lot because of the wind. She then looks back at Tiger's ship.
Jet: Are they... more Homeworld gems? Ugh, of course, why Homeworld would only send me and my group?! They totally hoped we were defeated... Maybe they don't know Tiger is in here... and I can get her instead! Okay, Jet, try to act cool...
"Honestly if at least one of us catch her I could care less," Rubellite called and the snow fell down around her and she used her heat to begin melting the ice around her. This actually didn't make it much easier to walk through.
"If Ice was here she'd be able to freeze this stuff again..." She muttered annoyed that she wasn't getting to far.
"Well we could do some sleding, or build a snowman... Or head back somewhere warmer, burr," Ammolite shivered.
"Uh...well," Tiger Iron rubbed her arms and blushed nervously, "I really wasn't like this all the time."
Snowy flickered her tail and the Yeti opened one eye thinking there may be something outside. The yeti growles lightly.
"Thhhiiissss isssss verrryryyyyyy unsaffffeeeee!" Lodestone howled while holding on to ice for deer life as they traveled over the iceshelf at high speeds. "Do yooooou eeeeeevennnnnn knowwwww wheeeere wereeee gooooooinggggg? I looossst Bo-mate's ssssiight." Lodestone tried to ask Ice.
"Yeah, your bird isn't stupid, she's been sharing her sight with me now....I think I see the gem she saw over there, lets get a little closer." She continued to zoom towards Jet.
"I vote to build a Snow man! That sounds fun! And the others won't need us back right away, we can have some time to relax, right?" Cuprite asked.
"Of Course, all work and know play makes Pearl a dull gem." Yellow Calcite said.
Galena- Calcite does a quick move ana and back into the normal plane to sense dimensional disturbance, and sees Ida being summoned from Zultanites gemstone. "Those are definitely gems. Probably a squad, not just rubies."
Impactite closes her eyes and nods, the wind blowing her hair. She releases kinetic energy to warm the area, and then looks to the eyes. "Maybe they aren't rubies, but they probably aren't smart enough or united enough to leave a sentry for the eye. Care to cause a little mischief?" She weaves her fingers and extends her arms, popping her fingers. She summons a large baton. "Take the eye for a spin, stop their ride, trap em here."
Galena-Calcite looks unsure. "Maybe...what do u think Sphalerite?"
Zultanite continues to dash forward, held by the back of the neck by Ida. "We'll probably get there and finish the mission before they even arrive."
Ida's faceless head looks to Zultanite, their summon-master relationship letting her communicate. "Depends on their full abilities. With you trying to keep me as your servant, you won't be able to summon any of your normal methods of combat. I myself am only able to mildly attack. The best you can do is hold them back physically, do you really think you can succeed?"
Zultanite frowns at Ida. "Don't sass me. I have a plan, you follow my commands, and we can get this done. Trust me."
Impactite nods. "Totally agree. Shall I take us? It'll be faster." She flips her sled and hooks it into the baton, so it can be pulled.
Galena-Calcite shrugs. "Why not." He sits on top, leaving space for sphalerite.
Ida stops a hundred yards in front of the abandoned ship. "We are here. Any closer would be dangerous due to being visible, even with the weather." Her eye zooms towards her and she shapeshifts into it, becoming one larger eye.
Zultanite nods. "Ok then. You go observe entrances and see what is going on inside. I'll prepare myself." He goes and begins to make a chain out of locks.
Ida's eye floats towards the ship slowly, using her white coloration as camoflage.
Ida's eye sees jet in the distance as it gets closer, and subsequently avoids that area to go around the area to find a different entrance with less attention.
Zultanite lies flat to avoid detection from homeworld or CG, and continues making his chain one link at a time.
Galena-Calcite finishes lashing the baton to the sled with his net. He ties the ends in a square knot and holds up his hands. "There we go. All squared away. Hehe. Ready to sled when you are, sphalerite. Unless u wanna walk."
(Am I the only one envisioning the scene with lassie the dog? "What's that? Is timmy stuck in the old abandoned well?")
Impactite smiles. "Hold tight." She subsequently flips upwards, and lands on the ground, grabbing the baton. She then uses the energy, dashing forward, running like a motorized sled forward, excess kintetic energy warming the sled behind her.
Ice and lodestone skated up and came to a stop shortly in front of jet.
"Ughh Mate, I think I'm gonna be sick." Lodestone said walking around dizzily. She shook her head and focused "Any way who are you? We're you with the Alpha squad?" She asked Jet, while Hogbomite landed on her shoulder.
"Hmm, whats in this cave here? Did you find the missing gem?" She asked Jet.
"Perfect!" Cuprite smiled and "look the cave is right up ahead! We could be there in a jiffy if we hurry."
Jet: (stands up and clean the snow of her clothes) Finally, backup! Team Alpha was taken down by some corrupted gem and I'm the only one standing! And you'll be glad to hear that I found Tiger Iron! She's inside that ship, waiting to be taken to Homeworld! You can thank me now...
"We got to stay quiet, that means you too!" Tiger Iron whisper getting down, her claws where still out and the Yeti nodded and kept quiet ducking down to make sure anyone looking in wouldn't see anything.
Snowy was moving around nervously and whinned, "Hush now your okay," Tiger Iron tried to reassure the small snowy fox.
Lodestone pulled out her orb again and began writing things down, "What diamond do you report to? And if she is indeed on the ship why are you still here?" She asked trying to obtain more information on the situation.
"I find it hard to believe you could beat her on your own, where is the rest of your squad?" Ice wondered.
Hogbomite began crawling around the snow and noticed the window, she began clawing at it and looked in.
Jet, being an explorer gem in a low place in hierarchy, isn't very good when it comes to fighting, being her sickles her only strategy in battle. She, however, tries to make herself important.
Jet: I report to White Diamond's Court, altrough some members of the Alpha group were from Blue Diamond's. We were attacked by some corrupted gem...I manage to escape, and then I founded who I trough it was Tiger Iron. Only to realize she was some kind of onyx... an Onicolo, maybe?
She went inside this ship and luckily Tiger Iron is in there too! Talk about coincidence... You're from Beta team? Well, I can't defeat that criminal and her corrupted friends alone, so I command you to go inside and take her out!
"You presume to order me around!!??!" Ice said angrily at Jet. Since she is a one of the kind gem and pretty much out of the Caste system she has never been ordered by anyone but Blue Diamond, so the thought that a gem who wasn't nearly as strong as a diamond was trying to command her gave her the chills...but in a bad way. "You haven't the authrority or the power to command me! And don't for one second think you do!" Ice formed a Mace around her hand.
Hogbomite snickered watching Ice flare up like this, she had such a firery temper sometimes, wonder where that came from?
Lodestone went to investigate the ship aswell, but continued talking as she decided to stay on schedule. "Techinaclly we aren't from Beta team, they haven't landed yet, were from...Secret team would be more accurate. Blue Diamond sent us here to get that gem first." Lodestone explained while examining the ship. She began to attract one spot to her causing the metal of the ship to bend. "I will admit you don't have the power to command us, but this ship does merit and investigation." she continued to pull.
Cuprite ran up ahead and reach the entranc to the cave. "First! I win! Praise me! Praise me!" she cheered happily.
Yellow calcite rolled her eyes, "She's been spedning to much time with peridot. But were here now. Lets look around."
Jet realizes her mistake and takes a step back, looking down. Mostly because she didn't wanted to see the face of Ice. She then looks at Lodestone.
Jet: I wasn't trying to control you or something, guys... Chill a little, we're in the snow... I'm just saying that you have the power to go inside and take her out. It's your duty as members of Homeworld, y'know... It's not a personal interest. So, it's everything cool, Gamma Team?
"Ice don't you think it's time you intervene?" Lodestone asked While watching the battle with Ice from the distance. "I mean this is our best chance to catch the criminal."
"We should stay out of it, I have no doubt we can catch her. Ever seen a Lazuli fight in an ocean? Well it's the same thing with me here.We can let the others wear her down and then take her for ourselves." Ice told Lodestone.
"Do you here something?" Yellow calcite asked ammolite,she thought she heard a lot of commotion coming from nearby.
"Yeah actually I did," Ammolite decided to direct her attention towards the area she heard the Yeti scream. She headed into the snow storm and saw the comotion.
Snowy yelped being tackled by Ida and she bit and whipped her tail back and forth and she let out a small howl cry.
"We're out numbered, we have to run," Tiger growled and readied her claws standing next to Onicolo until she noticed Snowy, she used her force push to know Ida away. Snowy took this as an attempt to escaped to Onicolo and Tiger Iron.
Ida looks to Snowy, and uses her eye to speed up Zultanite, who rushes forward. He swings the chain he has, and makes a large manacle on the end. He throws it towards Vermeil, hoping to trap the small gem creature to use as a bargaining chip.
Zultanite pulls on the chain, and while this does fling vermeil back, the chain breaks due to it being weakened by the mace. He gives the creatures to Ida and starts attempting to put on manacles, shackling the front legs, hind legs, wings, and eventually muzzle in the order depending on vermeils level of struggling.
Zultanite gets fire at his face, and while the ice and cold made it only mildly burning, Zultanite gets furious. "Stupid gem. Try taking a look at a real companion." He desummons Ida, and summons Rosethorn. The large chained figure holds Vermeil in its chained arms, Zultanite gives up and muzzling and manacling it, and is satisfied connecting the manacle to Rose' vine.
Lodestone pulls out her screen again ". Bo-mate Track!" Lodestone pointed to Toger iron and called out before Högbomite flew into the air. "Things are getting crowded here, let's make our move later.
Ice was observing Snowy and something didn't sit right with her. "Yeah, I have a plan...she said coldly,paying special attention to snowys leg. "Let's go for now." A large snow hand formed underneath Lodestone and Ice and folded around them, before collapsing in the snow.
"Vermeil!" Onicolo tries running to her to help her out, but Jet trips them to the ground. "Gah!" The pain from falling to the ground so suddenly, along with being slashed a moment ago made it hard to get up. "Tiger Iron! Save Vermeil, please!"
Snowy had stayed still for a long time and howl loudly. Large Snow hand came out of the ground and grabbed all the gems who where around before Tiger Iron could even defend herself. Snowy's leg melted completely off as she focused to keep the other gems held with her powers.
"You Dastards!" Tiger Iron yelled Ironically. In the older times it would have been her they be calling the cruel one, "Wow Snowy that's amazing keep it up," Tiger Iron noticed the small gem was struggling so moved quickly to free Vermeil and she grabbed Onicolo under one arm and quickly fleed, "Come on Snowy!"
Snowy didn't move she was still focused on holding the homeworld gems down. Tiger Iron had to keep running and she knew she had to get them somewhere safe, "Thanks Snowy...." She and Onicolo disappeared into the caverns right before Snowy poofed and the Snow gem dropped into the snow. The arms released all the homeworld gems but they have now lost track of their mark.
Rubellite came running, she immediantly thought someone had attacked Ice, "ALRIGHT YOU MONSTERS! WHERE'S ICE!" She was burning up as she stood infront of a Snow gem and she gasped, but the paused for a momnet as she knelt down to pick it up, "This isn't...the same cut..."
Before Ammolite, Yellow Calcite and Cuprite could exit the caverns they saw Tiger Inron enter it without stopping passing them.
"Hey wait? What was that battle about? Is that Onicolo?" Ammolite called as the gem ran full speed deeper into the cavern of Ice, "Come on let's follow them!"
"I am not!" Rubellite shouted, "I'm demanding to know what is going on, and is this some sort of joke, What gem is this!?" Rubellite held up the gemstone from Snowy.
"Yeah let's go after them!" Ammolite called and headed after Tiger Iron and Onicolo, "Hang in ther Onicolo we're coming."
Deeper in the caves Tiger Iron huffed and dropped Onicolo, "Sorry...Snowy..." She huffed and sat down on the ground, "I don't know what they'll do to her...probably break her for being on my side..." She sniffed.
Zultanite looks over at the gem and inspects this. He compares it to the snow and ice, and voices his opinion. "Either some form of exotic glass, or somehow some sort of gem made of ice. I don't know how there is one here, but that would be interesting. Didn't you say you knew one?" His summon moves his vine through the ground, searching for the gems through his vines manipualtion of the environment.
(Hey, I'm probably going to take a break from the roleplays today to work on character art for my fanon, so if you think you could control any of my characters well, you can use them until when I get back.)
Rosethorn extends their tentacles further down the path, and uses their IOE ability to cause the snow and ground to move the gems towards the cave. Zultanite hands the gemstone back to Rubellite. "Yea, seeing it's reaction to heat would be the best way to tell because it would mildly change density, but you probably don't want to test it. Besides, it's just another corrupted gem. you can keep it as a pet if you wanted, up to you."
Rubellite seemed to calm down and stared at the gem, "It's impossible for this to be a snow... they were all shattered... I was there... It must be some type of false glass," She considered shattering it but instead bubbled the gem sending it to her ship.
She took down the fire wall, "Alright lead the way."
"Relax they're my friends," Onicolo said and looked up at Yellow Calcite and Ammolite.
"Fair enough, your gem, you make the call." Zultanite unsummons Rosethorn and summons Preta, a snake with an extremely large disproportionate mouth. He jumps on its head and it begins to propel itself through the snow, eating through the snow and revealing ice to slide on.
"I'm Cuprite!" She said twriling around happily. "Pleased to meet you!"
"Yes I'm Yellow Calcite" She said doing a courtsie towards Tiger iron. She heard something coming from the side of the cavern. "Huh what's that?" she looked towards the noise.
As they talked the side of the cave began to crack open, a large Snow drill plowed the side of the wall, and two gems popped out of it.
"Told you I could get us here, quickly." Ice smirked she eyed the gems in the cave. "I'm guessing you are the one they called Tiger iron, you are our target. I reccomend surrender." she said preparing for battle.
"Please surrender, we don't have enough time on our schedule for a fight, and I would prefer to settle this peacefully.Bo-mate! here girl!" she called into the air.
Hogbomite flew down to her and landed on Lodestone's shoulder. she hissed at the other gems.
"What? It's you guys, well actually there's only one of them this time..." Ammolite looked at Yellow Calcite and then back at Ice and Lodestone, "Well I mean there's three of you but I was refering to the fire and ice dou, like evil Garnet."
"Look I'm not going back there! I'll never go back," Tiger Iron clutched her fist, "You took Snowy away from me and broke that poor Yeti gem, they didn't stand a chance, your more of a monster than I am now!"
"Tiger Iron?" Onicolo looked up at her as she stood summoning her claws.
"Believe me I much rather be here with Rube, but Blue Diamond's orders and all that." Her hands began to glow icy blue and the ice around her rose off the ground. "But if you don't want to go easily that just makes it more fun for me." she laughed. before throwing the large Ice chunks at the gang.
"Wow I'm hurt...Guess I'm always second pick." she said laughing "Anyway Bo-mate Sic'em." she pointed at The two gems and Hogbomite flew at them, she shot 4 globs of her sticky acidic goo at Ammolite.
"Yike's! Team scatter!" Yellow Calcite grabbed Cuprite and shrunk them and flew dodged some of the ice shards.
Jet gets up and walks to Rubellite, slighty looking at Snowy's bubbled gemstone.
Jet: You seems to be the big deal around here... I heard you talk about snows gemstone and... what a coincidence, but one of those was here just a couple of seconds ago. If we go to that cavern around... there, you can find her. She has the same temper as you, so I guess you two must get along...
Ice chuckled "Seriously you think charging in blindly is the best plan?" She raised a thick block of ice in between her and Tiger blocking her attack. "You're out of your element and I'm in mine." The ice block then rapidly slid back attempting to slam Tiger into the far wall.
Hogbomite snickered at Ammolite as the good that was stick to her began burning her skin. She turned to Onicolo and shot 3 globs of good.
Lodestone turned and faced Yellow Calcite and Cuprite. "I guess I'm supposed to battle you two, please note I would prefer a peaceful surrender so no one needs tongetvhurt." She attempted diplomacy.
"Yeah right!" Cuprite switched places with Lodestone places her in YC's arms.
"Time for a dizzying defeathe! " Yellow spiraled towards the ground before pulling up and slamming Lodestone into the ceiling.
"Ouch get it off!" Ammolite screamed and rolled around on the ground frantically.
Tiger didn't seem bother and climbed up the Ice wall using her claws and use a forceful push to push it down enough for her to clear it and she pounced roaring loudly aiming for what she thought was the gemstone.
"Your tactics are so simplistic and violent...Almost reminds me of her." Ice made large immobile ice spieks from the ground infrontt of her, if Tiger continues to move towards her she would be impaled before reaching Ice's gemstone.
Hogbomite began cracking up watching Ammolite roll around on the floor in pain. Her goo wouldn't get off that easily.
"That's it! I tried being reasonable, but if you rebels only undertsand violence than I'll just fight." Lodestone summoned her boomerang and prepared for battle.
"Ammolite, I think we should begin looking for an exit before her friends find us." Yellow calcite said before shooting feathers at Lodestone.
Tiger Iron's quick cat reflexs kicked in and she stoped and suddenly almost vanished. There was a growl that came from above and now behind Ice. A blaste of EMP Ran through the cave about 30 feet causing an ear peircing sound to erupt stunning everyone within range.
"Argh..." Ammolite hel her head in pain.
Rubellite headed into the cavern with the other homeworld gem just ear shot of the EMP and she covered her ears, "What the heck was that?"
(I was waiting an extra post to simulate the time of transport necessary to travel to the cave)
Zultanite slides inside on his summon, leaping off of its head as the EMP sound took place, causing both Zultanite to stop his aerial manouver and cover his ears. The summon, due to not having ears and having limited hearing, only swerves towards the wall and cringes before it returns to its path, swerving and cringing its way towards cuprite.
(Also, funny Spanish Inquisition reference in the trials)
Jet followed Rubellite and also hears the the shot of the EMP, but she wans't in the range to get stunned by it. She, however, falls into the snow by the vibration of the ground.
Jet: I think that's a electromagnetic pulse or something... Oh no, that blue gem... Snow, wasn't it? She is with Tiger Iron and she's trying to capture her! Without the gem that found her first! A.K.A.: Me... We need to go faster!
Hogbomite and Cuprite fall to the ground twitching uncontrollably, since they are both extremely vulnerable to electrical attacks.
Yellow calcite covered her ears and looked over to Cuprite "What happened!? Cup are you alright?" She began moving closer to them. She noticed Lodetsone walking towards Ice and Tigor iron.
The sound began resonating in Ice's body cauing her to keel over and fall to the ground. "Ughh! I who turned on that blasted noise!?" she screamed in pain.
"Seriously Mates? your all a bunch of babies." Lodestone rolled her eyes and picked up Hogbomite and put her under her hat, she was unaffected by the EMP. "This is just perfect? However, your little tactic seemed to do more damage to the gems on your side then to my team. So why don't you just surrender now?" She asked Tiger Iron.
(Hogbomite is under Lodestone's hat, not next to Cuprite.)
"If you want to be affective I reccomend you drop the weapon." Lodestone said while her magnetic field began to repel Ammolite's javelin sending it flying towards the other side of the cave, with Ammolite if she continues to hold it. "Give it up already!" Lodestone turned to face Tiger and throws her boomerang boomerang in such a way to strike Tiger Iron from behind.
As the sound began to disipate Yellow Calcite began to recover "Ugg that was annoying" she flew down next to Cuprite. "You alright Cup?" after Cuprite didn't repond Yellow Calcite scooped her up. "There are too many gems here, Onicolo Ammolite we have to go!"
"What about Tiger Iron?" Onicolo asked as Ammolite scooped her up.
"What can we do, they're going to over power us," Ammolite whinned she really didn't want to leave the gem behind. She obviously was not on home world's side and she would be a great assite to their team.
Just as it was about to hit her the boomerang was pushed back with a force of energy. This time it was stronger as Tiger Iron know shape shifted back and was still had Ice pinned down. She dragged her claws against Ice's gemstone with a look of sheer hate in her eyes.
"GET OFF HER!" Rubellite screamed sending a huge fire ball straight at the gem. The heat became unbearable and was melting the walls of the cavern quickly. The place was going to cave in if Rubellite kept burning.
Zultanite's summon realizes it was biting at nothing, and shakes its head at its hallucination.
Zultanite sees the cave beginning to melt, and gets towards the exit where the crystal gems are, jumping on his summon before it mis-lunges again. He rides it towards that area and start setting up chains to block the exit.
"We can come back for her! But for now we have to get out of here! Follow me!" Yellow calcite told the other gems. Before looking for an exit, she couldn't find a good one since the homeworld gems were coming in. She focused. "I need your strength!" She said said forming a paraloop and spinning her wings around her body, forming a black aura that began to tunnel through one of the walls.
Ice's body cracked open from the weight of Tiger iron and the heat from Rubellite,revealing the inside was empty.
Lodestone noticed the collapsing cave "this is why Blue diamond prefers small controlled squads over these large unorganized ones." Lodestone rolled her eyes, but if they managed to capture
Tiger it's win win.
Black Calcite finsihed tunneling up from the Ice cavern and as she reached the surface was visibly exhausted. "Ugghh!! You gems are heavier than you look. Might I reccomend laying off the late night snacking Cuprite!" She yelled at Cuprite.
Cuprite had recovered from the EMP blast and shook her head around. "Ughh what hit me? How long was I out?" she asked around.
Lodestone looked around at the collapsing cavern switching her vision across differen't EMR frequencies, until she spotted a trail from Tiger in infrared. "Any non Ice gem would leave an obvious trail across Snow." Lodestone said following it.
An Ice spike came up from the center of the room and cracked into the form of Ice's body. "Phew....Glad that sound stopped I can't handle noise like that." she said still dazed from the soundwave.
