TEST DRIVE - Part 2

Maybe you've been here for a while, or maybe you just got here. Either way, you're all in the same situation - you've been turned into a magical gemstone and stranded in a foreign world! And all you've been left with is the clothes on your back, stripped of all powers except one.

Clearly, you’ll just have to make the best of it.

How this works:

☆ This is a test drive for [community profile] cosmographia, which means you should get a little familiar with the setting and premise.

☆ Otherwise, this is just meant to help you feel out how you may play and serves mainly as a chill interest gathering and get together kind of post! No app necessary, and you don't need to play in this post to apply - or vice versa.

☆ Everybody is welcome! There are no character limitations; pg au oc canon pigeon whatever. Just toss up a topcomment and/or jump any threads that pique your interest.

☆ This post will remain open until it begins to approach 5000 comments! Then a new test-drive post will be made.

☆ Rules-wise: Be cool to yourself and others, and keep in mind the other game rules too.

☆ If you do apply to the game and are accepted, and you want to keep the CR, you may so long as what you did isn't setting breaking and everyone involved agrees.


YOUR OPTIONS:

☆ You find yourself in the Heart of a ruined temple. There is a large glowing gem that thrums with some kind of rhythm, and jewels scattered all over the room, kept in strange bubbles. At the very least, touching the large gem will give you a standard info-dump, but some of you might be a little cautious about touching weird luminescent gems. Good thing that there are other people there too!

☆ Or perhaps you already know everything there is to know, and are there in the Heart of the Ruined Temple to greet new arrivals. Or perhaps you simply had business there already, like storing away a corrupted gem from a monster, when someone new seemingly dropped in from no where.

☆ It's Farmer's Market day in the plaza of Waverly Bay! Perhaps you're there perusing the goods and strike up conversation, or accidentally bump into someone and get to know them that way. It's a fairly standard day.

☆ There's an event! You don't really know what else to call them - missions, perhaps? But something in the temple was triggered, and the glowy Heart gem has something new to "tell" you: If you want a new power, you should try telling other people two truths and a lie. Those who you interact with must try and divine the lie from your statements.

You have no idea how something this simple will get you a power, but hey.

[If there's one thing Rose Quartz loves more than anything else about saturdays, it's a Farmer's Market. So much life! So much noise and bustle, the farmers competing for sales, the smells and sights-- and flavors! Who knew food could come in so many flavors? Who knew life could come in so many flavors?

It's all so beautiful.

Especially this fruit, right here! It's... Well, it's pink. And it has leaves. And it's apparently for sale! You do need money to purchase things, right?

And that's how Rose Quartz, renown general of hundreds of victorious battles, leader of hearts and minds, presumed captain of the Crystal Gems, found herself stumped by the price of a simple unripe pomegranate. Someone please help this trainwreck out, will you?

[Things were hectic for the gem. Meeting people, helping people who were confused or stumped by their gem powers, and well, what they were. And other factors filtered into her mind as she walks through the market.

That's until she bumps right into someone. With her mind being so preoccupied, she doesn't look up before its too late. She falls back on her rump and winces, starting to stand back up, dusting off her clothes of dust.]


I'm sorry, I didn't see where I was going...
imperfectporkchops: (so simple you'd taken it for granted)

[personal profile] imperfectporkchops 2015-06-07 04:49 am (UTC)(link)
That's quite alright, I was-- [She's already leaning down to help her up when Rose realizes] Pearl!

[She was already smiling, but now it's more than politeness: real joy.]

Fancy meeting you here! I like the new look.

[There were many things Simon missed back home. Lazing about in his bed, meeting nice people and having nerdy chats with them, and eating fresh food. The Farmer's market fulfilled two of those things!

The last one would come later. That was fine. Right now, there was pineapple, and bananas, and strawberries, and even pomegranates!

But he his halted in his pursuit of the perfect fruit salad concoction, by someone taking their sweet time at the stand. Simon was nothing if not patient, though this woman seemed to be... confused?

[He's going through the market, doing less buying and more looking. He stops and lingers every now and then but never purchases, most likely because he has no money.

He sees the large pink figure staring pretty hard at something though, and can't resist glancing. And then noticing she seemed a little lost.]


You uh, need any help?

[So, uh, there's a thing about the Farmer's Market in this town. Well, there's a thing about the boardwalk streets of this town in general. See, there's this middle-aged balding guy with a crystal guitar who stands at the street corner and plays and sings for the people who toss coins and bills in his plastic sand bucket.

In fact, he's singing right now.]

[Oh man, she loves this song! It's time to abandon her unripened fruit and go see what all this noise is. Hope you like Disney duets, Greg, because Rose really can't help herself. ]

Still, this is the final frontier
everything is so clear
to my destiny I steer~


[She's grinning too hard to keep going, but she's so happy to see you all the same, Mr. Universe. However you've changed, you're still the same beautiful spirit underneath it all.]

[Fluttershy also loved the Farmer's Market. It was a great time to pick up some fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as see the other kinds of things might be for sale.

Seeing the woman, Fluttershy watches her for a moment before smiling, placing some money on the stand to pay for the pomegranate.]
imperfectporkchops: (they manufacture their own meaning)

[personal profile] imperfectporkchops 2015-06-07 06:39 am (UTC)(link)
Oh! Why, thank you so much.

[Never one to judge a gem by her appearance, Rose regards Fluttershy with a polite curiosity, nevertheless. Created beasts were common enough, familiars, and even gem-beasts, but this was... She seemed sane, and sentient, and... helpful!

Not exactly common traits, as these things went. So many gems had been broken, reduced to animalistic monsters. Not so with this one.

[There ought to be no way to miss the massive agate on Zim's back, where his PAK used to be, or to miss his gawping at Rose, except that he's doing it from somewhere around shin level to her, head tilted back as far as it can go and a bag of potato chips clutched in his scrawny arms.

Still, even if him and his wiggling antennae and massive pink eyes were overlooked, his voice cannot be ignored, and he declares, with considerable awe:]


You are very, very tall!

[Zim knows full well that tallness doesn't equate directly to merit with humans and other such strange and disgusting aliens, but this person is just-- so very, very tall. Surely being this much tall makes you at least a little important, right?]
imperfectporkchops: (every day should be Earth Day)

[personal profile] imperfectporkchops 2015-06-07 07:38 am (UTC)(link)

[Is Steven paying attention right now? No he's not at all, he's just walking along and through the stalls, looking for something he can give to Connie as a gift...and then he sees a head of hair.

Now, this head of hair, as far as heads of hair go, was impossible.

Not to say that no one could replicate the spiraling pink curls and massive amounts of it. It was more to say...the person attached to it was impossible. A few more seconds of staring and slowly getting closer confirmed that, not only was it not impossible; it was actually in fact, possible. So possible that it was there right in front of his face.

To say he was tearing up right now would be an absolute understatement.

Hmmm...these could make a nice tart...or maybe -

[Shunsui was a frequent visitor to the Farmer's Market, since they often had lots of things he could cook with! He was getting much better at it here in Waverly Bay, and expanding his horizons with lots of dishes that weren't even remotely Japanese. It was rather nice!

As was the hair of the woman over by one of the fruit stands! Pinker than even his kimono, and curly...well. How could he not talk to her?

And so he did, approaching slowly and keeping a respectful distance as he spoke.]

Ah, I'm sorry, m'lady, but I'm afraid that one isn't ripe yet! It's a lovely color but it'll take some time for it to be suitable to eat.

Usually for those they need to be a bit darker and a little bit soft to the touch before they're ready!

[Connie spotted her easily: it was very HARD not to, considering how tall she was, and yet she still couldn't believe it.

She'd seen her portrait in the gem's home countless times, so there was no mistaking Rose Quartz. If she was here...well, there was going to be a very tearful reunion for Steven and Mr. Universe when they saw her. For now though, she had to see if anything was amiss. The idea of Rose Universe being here was so unprecedented that she had to make sure everything was on the up and up].
