obsidian block


Cutting it close to the deadline, this is for the Gemsona February prompt. Obviously, I chose the “classroom gems” prompt and had the Astro Gems chibified and teaching a lesson based on their personalities and interests. I didn’t think it would take too long but my coloring habits proved me wrong. 
My Fire Agate, @tkpinkerton‘s Blue and Red Obsidian, @sentaiaddict and @lupineskyes‘s Watermelon Tourmaline, and the newest member of the crew @adb-fantasy‘s Jet! Also, here’s a bonus concept sketch I did for the project!

EDIT: By the way, the classroom background was made by accursedasche

EDIT EDIT: I realized I made an embarassing grammar typo. It’s supposed to be who instead of which… but it’s the obsidians, they’d probably make grammar errors. smooth, nerida. smooth

request for a suuuper fluffy ryan/reader!!!

((Sorry for the long wait, hopefully with two mods we will get fics out faster. And I hope this is ok!))

“Hey, everybody!” Ryan greets the AH guys from atop the kingly throne once more, his Minecraft skin complete with a crown this time.

A chorus of “hey”s, “hello”s, and “hi”s ring out in the achievement hunter room as King Ryan’s loyal subjects gather at the base of the throne.

“Welcome back to yet another ‘King Ryan’! This is the third one now, I believe. And as your king I would like to introduce you to my assistant for the day.”

“Kerry?” Michael asks, running around the throne.

“Nope! That traitor is on the run and hasn’t been seen for weeks. Today, I have brought in my lovely girlfriend and Minecraft extraordinaire, [Y/N]!”

“My king!” Geoff cries, “I would be more than honored to go retrieve the traitor for you!”

“Sucking up, I like it. Anywho, [Y/N] here has definitely assisted in the creation of today’s tasks, but there are changes in the tasks that even she doesn’t know about and the first ruling of today’s let’s play is that you will not be on any teams the entire let’s play. No team Nice Dynamite, no team Rayplacement, nothing. It’s every man for himself.”

“What would you like us to do, your majesty?” Gavin asks, impatient to begin.

“Your first task of the day is to each take a map and a book. Any gubbins you currently have must be disposed of in the gubbins pit. Each of you has a book with unique instructions, and you may trade now, but once you have opened your book you cannot trade with another player. Go ahead and start trading.” Michael and Gavin immediately trade with one another and Jeremy trades with Jack. Geoff refuses to trade, claiming that his book is “his and only his”.

“Alright, has everyone traded to their hearts content? Then when I say ‘Go’ you will each open your book to the VERY FIRST PAGE and only that page. That has the instructions for the first task on it. Killing is allowed because you will each memorize your task and put your book in your chest. Ready, set, go!”

You open your own enchanted book, reading the initial page:

Go collect enough wood to create 64 signs.

“Are you doing this with me, my king?” You ask Ryan and he turns to you in real life, giving you a small smile, “I wish I could, my dear, but I must moderate my subjects. Those signs will be essential in the future though so please go do that.”

“As you wish,” you smile, giving Ryan a sly look as you quote The Princess Bride. Your character runs off to begin punching trees. For the next twenty minutes, various squawks from Gavin, shouts from Michael, and the occasional “Noooooo!” pepper the laughter and banter of the Achievement Hunters.

“My king, I have completed my first task!” Jack announces, running up to the throne and crouching in a bow.

“Very good, Jack! You will receive a piece of the tower and then you must move on to the second task in the book. It is on the next page.” Ryan tosses Jack a single gold block which Jack places on his obsidian piece.

“So do we stop now or…?” Michael asks.

“No, you will continue your tasks and try to go faster. Jack is on round two of three before the rest of you, so you’ll want to hurry up.” A cacophony of groans bombards the microphones as Geoff, Michael, Gavin, and Jeremy continue whatever they are doing.

“My king, what would you like me to do?” You ask, “I have created a stack of 64 signs as you requested.”

“Now, my dear, I would like you to go into the Nether and collect for me two stacks of glowstone and craft them into blocks. Here is a diamond sword and pickaxe and some armour.”

“Thank you, your majesty, I will return shortly.”

Another twenty minutes and Jack has collected a second block of gold, but Gavin is closing in on the bearded ginger fast by completing tasks in record time.

“Gavin is awarded his first gold block, finishing his final task from the book just seconds before Jack!” Ryan MCs and tosses Gavin a block. Gavin crows and runs to his obsidian, placing the block on the ground next to it.

“Goddammit!” Gavin shouts, the office erupting in laughter. Ryan sighs and mines the block, placing it for Gavin.

“Your next task is to create an ender chest! Any previous chests have been removed so you must create this new one and place the gubbins from the previous tasks in it for it to count. Killing is allowed, just make sure you do not lose your specific gubs! Ready, set, go!”

Michael immediately dashes forward and begins beating Gavin with his diamond pickaxe.

“Hey, hey! Micoo! My boi! What’re you doing?”

“Sorry, Gav, but one gold block is one block too many. You must be stopped before you begin.”


“My king! I come bearing two stacks of glowstone as desired!”

“Good, good. Here’s a curveball, boys. [Y/N] is outfitted in diamond armour and is invisible. Don’t die by her hand or else you are disqualified for this round. Oh, and she has a map with each of you on it.”

Chaos breaks out as people scramble for cover and sanctuary from your rampage. You set fire to the ground and forest as you run through, your flint and steel running out of utility quickly.

As you slay Gavin, Michael comes up behind you and tries to take you out.

“You think I cannot defeat the mighty Mogar? Fear me!” You cry in joy as you beat the shit out of Michael. For this round Geoff manages to avoid you long enough to create an ender chest and place his gubbins in it.

“My king, I’m done!”

“Very good! You will all now follow me to this conveniently placed End portal and we will embark on our journey to the final part of this King Ryan!”

As you each pass through the portal, you land in a small obsidian room with a single ender chest, the purple end matter flowing into it.

“Geoff, please remove your gubbins from your chest and give [Y/N] the stack of 64 red stone.”

“Yes, your highness!” Geoff tosses the red stone at you and you pick it up, giving Ryan a puzzled look. You didn’t help design this part of the Let’s Play at all.

“[Y/N], you will now go down this nicely lit hallway and enter the room beyond. We will follow you of course.” Ryan commands and you comply, placing the red stone in your hand and sprinting down the corridor. It gives way to an enormous obsidian room that is lit by glowstone and an assortment of torches. In the center of the room is a large white mansion made of quartz.

“Explore the mansion, my dear. The rest of you, the winner of King Ryan III will be whomever does the best job of protecting my darling [Y/N] from the monsters inside. If she dies even once, Achievement City will win. [Y/N], you’ll know you’re where you need to go when you reach a room with a large painting on the wall. Go!” You rush inside the mansion with Geoff, Jack, Jeremy, Gavin, and Michael hot on your heels, each of them wielding some sort of weapon. Many times they throw themselves in harm’s way to prevent you from dying, which is effective to say the least. You notice the signs you collected for Ryan placed on the walls, each with an inside joke between the two of you typed on it. 

“This rain sure is wet.” 

“That’s all you do! You’re just a big cat!”

“Sometimes you just gotta stab a bitch.”

“’Mad’ king? More like ‘rad’ king, amiright?”

After a decent bit of exploring, you enter a room that is smaller than the others, with a large Kung Fu painting on the wall.

“Now, my dear, I need you to place one red stone between the switch in the floor and the wall. Once you have done that, feel free to flip the lever.” In real life you look at Ryan with confusion, but he just has a warm smile on his face as he watches you on your screen. You shrug, turning back to your computer and don’t notice when Gavin slides from his chair, turning on his phone and starting the video capture.

You place a single piece of red stone and flip the switch. Mechanical thumps and movement can be heard and a portion of the wall slides open, the Kung Fu painting breaking away. A single chest is revealed and you step forward, opening it, to see a lone gold pickaxe in it. You mouse over the pickaxe and the name pops up. You read the name of the pickaxe and then read it again. And again. And once more just to be certain.

“Ryan…” You say quietly, turning to him from behind the screen to see his kneeling on one knee beside you. Your hands fly to your face and you squeak in surprise.

“Every mad king needs an equally mad queen,” Ryan smiles happily, his eyes crinkling and his cheeks reddening, “Will you become my mad queen?” Ryan opens a small black box to reveal a silver ring in the shape of a crown with a single diamond on the band, “Marry me?”

You have tears streaming down your face and you nod profusely, removing your hands from your mouth, “Yes,” your voice cracks, “Yes, Ryan, I’ll marry you.”

The Achievement Hunters cheer as Ryan slides the cool ring onto your left ring finger and you glance at the computer screen where the name of the pickaxe is still visible as “Will you marry me?”. You then look at the other AH guys and see many of them smiling and patting each other on the back.

“You were all in on this?”

“Only them and half the office,” Ryan says, standing up, “We had to keep you distracted somehow. Why do you think Jeremy had so much missing footage? He was building!”

“Who won the Tower of Pimps, Ryan?” Gavin inquires, pushing his camera in Ryan’s face. Ryan smiles goofily from happiness, “The most beautiful woman in the world.” He then dips you backward, kissing you hard on the mouth and you throw your arms around his neck to keep your balance.

Later, you sit curled up on the white ikea couch with Ryan next to you, admiring the shiny ring.

“So how long did it take you to come up with that one?”

“Three months,” Ryan chuckles.

You rolls your eyes, “You’re such a dork.”

“Only the dorkiest for the mad queen.”

“You realize what this means, right?” You ask.

Ryan runs his hand up and down your side absently, “What’s that?”

“There will be a Queen [Y/N] series. And I can think of the perfect King to assist me.”

Ryan lays his head atop yours, pressing a kiss to your hair, “I love you. So much.”

“I love you, too.”

Minecraft hacks, I left him digging obsidian bcuz server kicks out AFK players after 2 mins, so I put scissors on the mouse to dig and shift button is being pressed by glue stick and a small thing,

There is like 30 obsidian blocks left, that’s 2 hours of digging with hand,

While I go out I leave him like this, so mz cactus farm keeps working, there is no one around me in this server so when I leave the server, plants in my base don’t grow, nothing is going on,

And while I’m out, cactus farm is growing me money

so my nieces got me hooked on minecraft and it’s amazing, survival mode is everything i ever wanted from an rpg, especially bc i can turn off the violence snd just build ridiculous houses everywhere

after two days lost in the mine i found in the basement of the forest house i built when i got lost on a sheep hunt -
i had been just chilling in my jungle treehouse at night doing woodwork for lack of s bed - i’m up by five diamonds, fifty blocks of obsidian, like two hundred bits of redstone, and a bunch of lapis lazuli and gold. i had had a little more gold at one point but i fell in lava and died.

i also filled in the central hall of the mine with a massive stone slab 4staircase i’m quirte pleased with, making forays into the central chamber at least much safer

next i need to finish my forest treehouse, cut down a ton of birch and oak trees for later use, and then keep building 32 block tall sand pillars so i can find my way back to the jungle (at which point i can build a beacon maybe, and find the map i dropped before i went hunting, which is why i got lost

then build my catton house jungle canopy sky pyramid



Obsidian Gemstone Meaning:

With its glassy luster, obsidian is a distinctive stone. Obsidian is formed as lava from volcanic eruptions cools within the earth. The speed at which it cools prevents crystallization and the rock forms as solid volcanic glass.

Although its most common color is black, obsidian can also be found in light brown, brown mottled with black, and black with a beautiful golden or silvery sheen. Snowflake Obsidian is dotted with white patches where parts of the rock have begun to crystallize. The most prized obsidian by gemologists is the Rainbow Obsidian variety with purple, green and gold bands of sheen.

Obsidian was revered by ancient cultures. It was one of the major barter materials, and prized for its ability to be worked to razor-sharp edges for arrows and spears. It has been used since prehistoric times for making tools, masks, weapons, mirrors and jewelry.

Healing Properties of Obsidian:

Obsidian helps to protect the very sensitive against depression. It is the stone of the soft hearted and gentle people of the world. Use obsidian to help block negativity of any kind. As a black gemstone, it symbolizes self control and resilience. Black stones have protective energies in the sense that black is the absence of light, and therefore, can be used to create invisibility.

Sources of Obsidian:

Obsidian can be found anywhere that volcanic activity has occurred. Some of its important sources today are South America, Japan, Mexico, Afghanistan, and parts of the United States. The San Carlos Apache Reservation in Arizona, United States, produces an interesting banded variety of obsidian known as “Apache Tears”.

Color: Black

Chakras: All

Astrological Sign: None
