"Yeah, that's it! That's exactly it! You relax in your gems... I can't! For me it's a prison! One I am locked in and I don't want to be... and I can't escape easily... when I am in it I can't defend myself... I can't run... and when I finally reform I just find out I was made into a jewelry!"
That memory haunted him for a long time. He never got over it completely. He promised himself he will never get into that position again.
"This lesson was clumsy, quickly put together and I seriously... you know what? Never mind..."
He stopped before he could say more. He had no chance of changing Morion's mind, he was just about lessons... even though Chip found those... questionable at best. Even his last argument haven't swayed him. He also didn't like fighting himself... but he had no choice, he had to stop it... and his promise? Well... his promise was worth far less then if he actually tried to help him with this one...
"Chip, learn the lessons of the past, for what has happened is happening. What has happened will happen. By understanding the past, you will learn how to act now and how to prepare for the future."
Morion suggested Then nodded to the complains
"Then it would be the best Fire Opal, if you would visit that healing place..."
The Smoky Quartz shook his head
"If you have such problems... As far as I know, at the moment Bloodstone is the protector of that healing fountain. A nice swim in the water and you are healed. No more problems, no more cracks, your chipped gem would be whole again. I can arrange for you a meeting with Bloodstone. And he will take you to there... "
He rested on his cane "But once you healed, you can't put those shard in again to their place. But if you collect them, I guess the healing waters would merge your cipped Gem with your shards. It is your decission... days, weeks... months... or even years in your current state, or a quick healing, and a new begining. Your choice... "

"I don't believe in history cycle theory... it's nonsense... there is no proof about that, just few pieces of coincidence here and there... nothing solid..."
He shrugged carelessly. "Do not call me Fire Opal... I don't like being called that... I stopped being Fire Opal when my own people turned against me and you know it very well! The Peridots killed Fire Opal that day, and Chip was born. And I don't want Fire Opal coming back... "
Suddenly it was quite obvious. Fire Opal were gone... for good. And Chip didn't want to be him. He still wanted to find those shards, but not to be one with them... perhaps, if he had all of them, he could do something for them? Or maybe the healing shrine could do something for them...
"I think I would like this Bloodstone to help me..."
“Even in times of trouble, remember this: there is no evil in nature. What is now has been before and will be again. It is the short sighted and foolish who believe that life has no patterns, no purposes. All that is now is part of what has been and what will come to be.”
The Smoky Quartz smiled
"Sorry... It won't happen again Chip... I promise. I will never call you again Fire Opal, or present you as one. Tho'... when the Diamonds arrives, you can't introduce yourself as "Chip". Please use your name... okay? And be careful, most of the Gems tend to frown upon Gems with names. But others, like Bloodstone love the names Gems! He actually have two names... one for his Female persona, that is called Octavia and one for his Male persona, who is called Octavian. So I think you two will be fast friends..."
"He is at the moment Independent and I tolerate it. But when Pink Diamond's ships arrives, he will join the Pink Court as a guardian, a defender! Actually he and I... we are close to each other. You could call it a love... or romance.
"So trust me on this one, he means you no harm... except his independence, but you are smart enough to resist the "temptation", I am sure..."

"Yeah, you lost me... I have no idea what are you talking about. I think it's really foolish to search for patterns where are none... but hey, that's just me... perhaps when I live for hundreds of years I'll find some patterns too..."
He said honestly. People and gems had free will, they could do whatever they wanted... so it was hard for some pattern to emerge...
"I am using my name... when... or more like IF the Diamonds ever come... well I will cross that bridge when I came to it. I really don't think it is something I will have to solve anytime soon..."
He had still his doubts about Diamonds coming.
"I will look forward to meeting this Bloodstone, especially if he is willing and able to help me. And he is apparently a nice guy, which is always nice. But I have this feeling there will be some kind of catch... there is always a catch..."
He said. After all, when Chip and Morion met he told him nothing about this fountain. Either because he didn't know or he had good reason not to...
"Sorry, I tend to forget, you are so young... It is easy you know! You are no different than any older Gem!"
The Smoky Quartz shook his head "Yes... Bloodstone is real nice. A Berserker... who is in essence is pacifist, he avoids confrontations and always try to resolve the problems peaceful ways! To be honest, maybe he would be better teacher for you than me"
The Assassin admited with a sad smile
"Well.. there is only one catch I think. Since I am Loyal and Bloodstone is Independent, at the moment... and the Fountain was not so long ago... or still it is under Crystal Gem control, Bloodstone I think will ask you NOT to tell me where is that damn Fountain... But I can live with that. Healing you is more important than waging war over that place. Bloodstone tries to keep the fragile neutrality of that place... by not telling me where it is. He knew I would rather destroy it, than let the Crystal Gems have that advantage! But not before you healed Chip... trust me! I would never destroy it even if I knew where that Fountain is..."

"Well I do have some information in my head... well... in my gem I suppose, since my head is just a projection... but my point is, that even though I don't have all the information I should I have some... and I can learn stuff you know... I am always learning something new."
He explained. He had to learn a lot of things he should known by default.
"Pacifist berserker... yeah, that sounds like name of a terrible comic book... He was born in the cold north! But he defied the ways of his ancestors! He disliked war, so he became... THE PACIFIST BERSERKER!"
He painted the image of this supposed comic. It wasn't half bad idea... it could be interesting to read. Perhaps like a comedy?
"Well, from what I heard Crystal gems could be reason with... they wouldn't attack me, would they? After all, I have no plans to destroy that place... and you should neither. With the healers gone it's priceless... you never know when you will need that..."
"You heard this nonsense about the Crystal Gems... from who?"
The Smoky Quartz asked politely He was curious, very curious who told that to Fire Opal^^ "You tend to forget, the Crystal Gems attacked and sabotaged the Kindergartens Chip!
Morion voice was grim, watched the Fire Opal with his silver eyes
"You were lucky you emerged Chip, even a cracked, chiped Gem, you emerged, you were the lucky one! Please never forget this!"
The Smoky Quartz shook his head, while clenched his fist
"...but Diamonds know how many "unborn" Gem died on that day Chip! How many innocent young Gem are still in the Erath's Crust, sleeping their never ening dreamless sleep... never to awake? DON'T talk about reason Chip!"
"Yes... they killed OUR healers, but they still have some I guess... that place is strategically improntant! Or even the key to win this war... If we can't take from them, it have to be destroyed... I think you understand why! But..."
Morion rested on his cane with a sigh
"I supose you are right... if they are there, they would try to convince you, to join them, with sweet, beautiful lies... You maybe don't like my methods, hate my lessons... but I never lied to you, everything is pure, hard, cold, merciless, cruel truth..."
Morion voice was tired
"Lets go... I will ask Bloodstone to take you to there, and one of our humans will take you to him with a car. Or I can give you a motorcycle. They are easy to ride..."
Post by Chip the Fire Opal on Oct 12, 2016 12:54:54 GMT
"I met few of them you know! And they never attacked me... sure, they weren't exactly super kind... but let me be when I said them, that in this war I am Switzerland. The "Loyal" gems were the ones, who wanted me dead..."
"And I was hearing that I'm affront to Diamond's perfection... I never heard I was affront to free Earth... you were actually the first loyal gem who wasn't a complete jerk to me... and that they killed loyal gems... well, that's war... I'm pretty sure both sides did their good share of killing... this war is still yours, theirs... not mine... I refuse to be a soldier in this conflict!"
He said adamantly. That wasn't going to change. He said nothing more, he didn't comment Morion's speech about truth... he had no proof that Morion was telling him the truth. After all he was master manipulator... Chip believed him, mostly but not completely. He just silently followed Morion... he didn't need motorcycle when he could fly... but car would be nice... just sitting... and relaxing...
"Petting scorpions with a compassionate hand only gets you a sting..."
The Smoky Quartz murmured Morion walked next to Chip to the Warp Pad He was silent After their return to Empire City, he called his butler
"Pearl..?" "Yes M'lord" "Please my Pearl, prepare the car. Chip going to visit Bloodstone. The Quartz knows the way, am I right?" "Yes M'lord, Joseph... " "Yes, yes, Joseph, the Quartz... He escorted Obsidian to Bloodstone too if I am correct "Yes M'lord" "Good. And please get some chocolate and some flowers... Humans love to give dead plants to each other and sweet things in an organ shaped box... Bloodstone will understand. Our little game..." "Right away M'lord..." "Good luck Chip... When you returned, you will find me here, or I will be at the Colony ship. Enjoy your field trip!
The Smoky Quartz bid his ferawell The butler bowed before Fire Opal
"This way young master..."
And led him to the big black limousine (that took him to Bloodsone's shack, with the chocolate and a nice bouquet of blood red gladioluses^^)

This Roleplay is a prequel to Steven Universe to an extent with some slight retconing and its own progression to the story that will turn out differently to how stuff plays out in the show.Thanks to the message by Rose Quartz several gems are rising up to protect Earth and have labelled themselves as the Crystal Gems. Others on earth are remaining aligned to Homeworld though despite the isolation of Earth from Homeworld
All gems on earth are still stranded, the communication hub is still offline and all the space warps are shattered, it has now been revealed that this is the work of Rose Quartz and her small group known as the Crystal gems. They have rebelled against Homeworld and have chosen to protect the Earth (Trapping themselves on Homeworld to keep the warps down).
Now both sides are fighting among themselves along with fighting against the 'Corruption' a virus is infecting many gems turning most of them into mindless monsters, but those with a stronger will seem to becoming something more sinister.
The Game has changed now. The question has finally been posed, are you against Homeworld or allied with them. Or do you have your own agenda that may or may not been assisted by the ‘Corruption’. Regardless the seeds have been placed down and although it is only the beginning the fight for or against Earth and the corruption has begun. The choice is yours for how it is shaped on the Original Steven Universe Roleplay Site.
Orginal Opening Plot Here Thread That Changed Everything
Differances Between the Roleplay and the Show
*Thanks to Rose Quartz' message the Gems on Earth are entirely aware that the Homeworld Gems intend to wipe out the human race.
*The "corruption" is being treated like a virus due to lack of info about it on the show.
*Garnet, Pearl and Rose are assumed capture on Homeworld
*Garnet,Pearl and Rose broke the space warps to delay Homeworld
*Thanks to Roses Message gems now know what the Kindergarten was used for
