This page records Fire Agate and her story on Ask Wynter Gems.

Humble Beginnings

Fire Agate creates an ask blog to help express herself in a non-destructive way. She begins answering questions, including talking about her swords and current living situation. While responding to an ask, Fire Agate receives a telepathic distress call from Watermelon Tourmaline. She urges her to come to the base quickly as something had happened to Blue Obsidian.

Guilt Arc

When Fire Agate arrives at the base, she discovers her best friend Blue Obsidian in their corrupted form. As she approaches them, they recognize her and shows their affection by ensnaring her with their tongue. The blue monster traps a now paralyzed Fire Agate inside their shell. She has a panic attack, blaming herself for not being there to protect them. Red Obsidian eventually manages to get her out and dries the paralyzing saliva on her with a hair dryer. The two take care of Blue Obsidian as they heal from their corruption. In between her shifts, Fire Agate continues to answer questions.

The situation has taken a toll on her as she shows signs of exhaustion. This slightly improves after seeing Blue Obsidian cured of their corruption. She continues replying to questions as she normally did, even previewing gifts she made for her team for the holidays. New Year arrives and while cleaning up after the obsidians night of drinking, someone sends Fire Agate a small pink chest. She tries to open it, but to no avail. Suddenly, she hears a loud screech coming from upstairs. She runs towards it and finds a now corrupted Red Obsidian. Fire Agate panics again after failing to protect her team a second time. She regains her composure by punching a hole in the door frame and offering to help with Red Obsidian. The guilt of her failures plague her. She becomes more visibly exhausted and agitated, answering questions aggressively. In this state, she issues a lockdown. Fire Agate begins releasing her frustration by talking badly about the Crystal Gems.

In this series of asks, she reveals a bit of her past. Fire Agate had fought in the Gem War on Earth, leading a battalion into battle. In an attempt to protect her remaining soldiers, she tried fending the Crystal Gems off by herself. This resulted Fire Agate being defeated by a fusion and later imprisoned inside a clay-like seal for five thousand years. Though she reluctantly talks about her experience directly, the images show her desperately begging for her freedom to save her soldiers and friends. The seal eventually eroded away and allowed her to regenerate. However, her gemstone had been damaged. Fire Agate didn't realize how much time had past and started searching for other Homeworld Gems. She had traversed a mountainous terrain, but this worsened her condition.

She was eventually found by Blue Obsidian broke down in tears, relieved to see her again. After remembering how Blue Obsidian felt that day, Fire Agate decided to check on the two obsidians. At that moment, Blue Obsidian and Red Obsidian, cured of their corruption, appeared. The obsidians were concerned about the lockdown and Fire Agate's well being. Blue Obsidian had pulled her in for a hug, but the agate immediately pushed them off. She denies anything is wrong and assures the lockdown was for their safety. After telling them to report any suspicious activity to her, she leaves to another room where she displays a moment of guilt in secret. Inquisitors asked her about revenge against the Crystal Gems, which Fire Agate responds with her strong desire to shatter their gemstones. But as she begins to describe it, she reminds herself the war is over and she should be focused on other things. She talks about what see looks for in a friend and indirectly states how much Blue Obsidian means to her. It was also revealed that Blue was the one who healed her cracked gemstone after their reunion. After another ask, the camera glitches out again.

The next update reveals Jet had just fixed the camera as well as upgrading its components. She discusses a feature not yet seen on the blog: it allowed others to send pre-recorded messages to Fire Agate. When the agate responded in concern, Jet quickly quells her worries by stating it won't allow others to track them. After she sees an example Jet prepared for her, Fire Agate thanks Jet for her work and goes to take the camera. Jet presses on Fire Agate's current mental state and advises her to rest. Fire Agate responds harshly and prompting the two to argue. After a small bout, Fire Agate ends the conversation and abruptly ends the feed.
