    Peridot looked up from her copy of 'Gem Science Today' when the bell above the door chimed, her eyes widening in surprise when a familiar female of surprising stature entered. 'Crud,' she thought as she began to fidget under the industrial dryer that was in the process of setting her hair, 'What is that Crystal Clod doing in here?!'

   
"Peridot," the woman said by way of greeting as she adjusted her visor, her tone neutral.

    "Garnet," Peridot greeted, her tone more snarky than welcoming, "What are *you* doing here?"

    The taller gem waved to another gem at the back of the salon, "Ruby has an appointment."

    This got Peridot's attention. She knew that Garnet was a fusion of two smaller gems - Ruby and Sapphire. If memory served, though, Ruby was not the type of gem who wanted to deal with having her hair styled, let alone spend time in a salon. That was something that Sapphire, Ruby's partner, would seem more inclined to want to do.

    As if on cue Garnet's form glowed, a column of fuchsia light surrounding her. The light broke away a moment later, revealing two smaller gems, one with red skin wearing a martial artist's gi, the other with blue skin and wavy aqua hair wearing a blue and white dress. The red skinned gem stepped forward, put her hands on her hips, and looked around.

    "Ruby, calm down," Sapphire said, placing a hand on her partner's shoulder, "you said you wanted a new style."

    "I know," Ruby grumbled, "but this place is so... so.... so..."

    "So what?" Peridot asked, regretting it the minute Ruby glared at her. She mentally asked herself where a gem of such a short stature could develop a glare that matched Jasper's in power and unbridled ferocity.

    "Miss Ruby," the gem from the back said by way of greeting, her voice pleasant and a somewhat sultry, "what can we do for you today?"

    Ruby looked to Sapphire for guidance. "She would like to try a new style," Sapphire replied. "Something more... suitable for an active gem."

    The salon owner nodded in understanding. "Right this way, and we'll see what we can do," she said, ushering a somewhat nervous Ruby toward the back of the shop, "we'll find something that will make your partner stare in awe."

    Ruby began to protest, only to think of how much she would hurt Sapphire's feelings if she didn't follow through on this. With one last glance back at her partner she allowed herself to be led to the back of the shop and the shampoo station.

    Back at the front of the shop Sapphire levitated up into one of the dryer chairs, where she picked up a copy of 'Gemworld Today' before turning the dryer to a steam setting. Peridot nervously folded her magazine a couple of times before making an attempt to initiate small talk.

    "So," she said, "what's the fireplug... err... your partner looking to have done today? Her style looked fine."

    "She feels like she wants her hair to have more give and take during a combat situation than it currently does," Sapphire replied as she flipped the pages of the magazine and perused the latest news regarding Yellow, White, and Blue Diamond, as well as other famous and infamous gems from the homeworld.

    Peridot quirked an eyebrow. "She has helmet hair," she stated, "I've seen her take a column to the head and that hair hasn't budged an inch."

    "Something infiltrated that perfect armor during a recent battle, and it has made her rethink her entire state of being," Sapphire stated, an edge of hurt to her words. "Ruby is... upset, and I suggested a trip to the salon. She agreed."

    "Oh...." the green gem replied, drawing the word out for several beats. After a few awkward moments, she asked, "What type of style would you like her to have?"

    "Whatever makes her happy," Sapphire replied, her tone cold as ice.

    Peridot closed her magazine and set it aside before sighing. "Is the smalltalk as awkward for you as it is for me?"

    "I had looked into the future and saw you asking that question. The answer is yes."

    Silence, save for the sound of the two dryers, pervaded the salon for the next half an hour. The salon owner stepped forward and said, "Who's ready to see our new style?"

    Sapphire closed her magazine, turned her dryer off, and folded her hands on her lap. "I am," she replied.

    Peridot turned her own dryer off and nodded. "Let's see what she did."

    The salon owner stepped aside, revealing Ruby. The red Gem blushed lightly as she stepped forward, her hair now a tumble of silky curls and ringlets that softly framed her face. "Wha... what do you think Sapphy?" she asked.

    Sapphire floated down from her chair and approached her partner. "You look lovely," she said, a hint of a smile on her face.

    "Wow," Peridot said in surprise, "Fireplug, that look really suits you."

    Ruby favored Peridot with a glare, which turned into a smile. "Thanks," she said, "your style suits you too."

    "Anything else I can do for you ladies today?" the salon owner asked.

    Sapphire giggled and gently kissed Ruby's neck. "I think we're fine here," the red gem replied. "Thank you."

    "Don't mention it honey," the owner replied as the two gems exited. She turned back to Peridot, her eyes widening in surprise when she saw the green gem's hair. "Oh honey," she sighed, "I knew the dryer must have been on too high."

    "What... what do you mean?" Peridot asked, running for a mirror. Her eyes widened in horror when she saw how stringy her hair was. "Those crystal clods!" she cried, "They ruined my hair!"

    "Oh, it's nothing that a little hairspray won't be able to fix," the owner said, picking up a can with a picture of Garnet on the side. "Hold still hon, and let Miss Tourmaline work her magic..."
SU Drabble - styled
One of my more random RNFs of late. How do Peridot, Ruby, and Garnet keep their hair so perfect in combat situations?

Ryo opened the door a crack and peeked out, his eyes widening when he saw the two men in dark suits approaching the room. He pushed the door shut and turned the lock, hoping that the deadbolt would buy them a minute or two.

Behind him Kenzu fidgeted, knowing full well the reason the men were chasing them.

"Why are they chasing us?" Ryo asked, his forehead resting against the door.

"I'm the reason they're chasing us," Kenzu replied.

Ryo's eyes widened in surprise with this response. Turning his head, he found his best friend with his right arm crossed over his chest, an ornate silver bracelet with a large indigo gem level with his eyes. "Kenzu?" he asked in awe.

Kenzu narrowed his eyes, a serious look on his face. "Precure!" he called, the gem shining with indigo light. "Let's go! Pretty up!"

Indigo light flared from the gem, engulfing his body. His school uniform melted away, ribbons of the same light wrapping around his body, arms, and legs. A second indigo gem formed above his head, and when he reached up to grasp the gem a large rapier formed. Taking hold of the sword, he spun around and slashed through the air, waves of indigo and violet light soaring into the sky before turning around to slash down around his body.

The ribbons around his legs solidified into knee-high boots of indigo. The ribbons around his body and arms solidified into a white outfit with violet and indigo trim. A length of indigo ribbon flared from the back of his jacket. The bracelet transformed into an ornate silver bracer, a second bracer forming around his right hand. Holding the sword aloft, a scabbard formed on his hip, and into this he inserted the blade. His hair glowed indigo for a brief moment before magically growing, a ponytail held in place with a bow of indigo and violet flowing down his back; two lengths of indigo hair growing from his bangs to frame his face. His glasses vanished, his irises changing from brown to a deep shade of purple.

"Cutting through the darkness with holy light," he spoke as his transformation came to an end. Posing with his hand on the hilt of his sword, he announced his name, "Cure Midnight Blade."

"Kenzu?" Ryo asked again, his mouth open in awe at what he had just witnessed.

Cure Midnight Blade nodded. "I'm sorry for not telling you," he said, putting his hands on his friend's shoulders, "but it was for your own protection."

Someone began to pound on the door, the ferocity of their blows threatening to shatter the deadbolt and hinges.

"Kenzu, why?" Ryo asked, his body shaking with a mixture of fear and anger. "How long?"

"For a while now," the Cure replied, "I'm part of a cursed Cure team, though."

Ryo stopped shaking and stared at his friend. "Cursed?"

Cure Midnight Blade nodded, the pounding intensifying. "All photographic evidence of our existence.... it will be replaced with pixels and a banner. Additionally, you, all of our classmates... my father... you will forget what I looked like. You will all remember a student named Kenzu, but you won't be able to draw what I look like. Any details you give to anyone will be conflicting."

"But why?"

"Because the ancient weapons that my team will use are too dangerous to fall into the hands of the enemy."

"Open up or we're busting the door down!" a gruff voice called from outside.

Cure Midnight Blade stood on his toes and kissed Ryo on the forehead. "I will miss you, my friend," he said before drawing his sword. Turning to the wall behind them, he held his weapon with the blade touching his left shoulder. "Precure!" he called, the gem in the sword's hilt shining with indigo light.

The blade shone with the same light as he spun around. "Sonic Slash!" he cried before slicing through the air, waves of indigo and violet light slamming through the wall.

The door came off of the hinges as he leaped through the hole. Turning his head for a second, he blew a kiss to his pursuers before plummeting into the alleyways below.
New Precure - preview
Had an interesting dream last night / this morning, involving a team of male Cures, all using a different type of enchanted / magical sword. Their transformation items were bracelets that changed into bracers. Their Cure uniforms had all of the usual female Cure requirements (boots, ribbons, ruffles, etc), but were more elegant and cut for a gentleman from Victorian times.

Cure Midnight Blade was the main character in my dream, and this is what I have managed to pull together thus far. I hope to write up a proper profile later today.

My basis for the Cure outfits for this group was inspired by Binan Koukou Chikyuu Bouei-Bu Love!

So... umm... does anyone know how to undelete (or if there is a way to undelete) a deleted draft in Sta.sh? I... fear I may have accidentally deleted ALL of my progress on the 'World's Chakra' story (as in, the Sta.sh writer file is MIA from my 'drafts' folder, and isn't showing up in my Sta.sh and I was stupid and didn't save a copy to my computer and now I am totally freaking the freak out!)

HELP!!!

To my watchers and especially those whom I owe sketch requests-

Everything is still in the works. We had an eventful weekend here, ending with a microburst / severe thunderstorm last night that uprooted several trees on our property, knocked out power to most of the town. One tree damaged part of our house, and also took out our meter box when it fell on our patio roof.

The good news is that things are in the process of being cleaned up. We have a new meter box. An electrician is coming tomorrow to wire everything up. Right now we have a generator running some vital things, such as refrigerators, some lights, and one television, as well as the cable modem.

I will be working on the requests throughout the week.

I hope so.

I'll let you know when the chaos at the house is to an acceptable level for RPing.

a bit. This week has been a megablur, and I can't believe it's Friday night. I did Zumba this morning for the first time in 2 weeks. I've been working on a memorial for Izzy on the Rainbow Bridge website on and off all week, and had a few people sign the guestbook overnight and leave little gifts for her memorial.

According to AJ, when he came to bed all 3 cats were sleeping beside me. He didn't get much sleep because Sammi was sleeping with his head on my pillow and his butt on AJ's pillow, and I woke up to Sammi butting his head into my cheek.

Tomorrow evening we go and pick up Bonnie (cat we adopted on Tuesday when we went to pick up something from the humane society for Sammi). We also decided that we'll be using the same vet that the humane society uses, as they are a hell of a lot nicer than the emergency vet we visited with Izzy last Saturday. Part of me wonders if things would have turned out differently if we had gone to that vet instead of the emergency vet. I know, deep down, that we did what we could, and that, as much as I don't want to admit it, it was her time.
