Chip was travelling on a back seat of a big black limousine. He travelled by car few times before, but never like this. It was an overkill... like most things Morion had. And it was scaring him a little. He didn't know this Bloodstone guy... and what will he think then he arrive in this giant car? He was too nervous to be looking from the window, yet he was giddy with anticipation. Since the first day he wanted to be complete... and now it didn't see impossible anymore. Before he could think further the car was stopping near some beach. The way was probably quite long, but he was thinking too hard to notice it... it was a very, very weird feeling... something between anticipation and terror... terrorcipation! Even though it wasn't a word it was exactly how he felt right now.
Once the car stopped he opened the back door.
"Thank you Sebastian... please, return back. If everything goes as planed I won't need your services anymore..."
He said, even though he had no idea what was the drivers name. Every single person who worked for Morion was Sebastian in his mind. He looked around. It was apparently somewhere here. Chip carefully went closer... this Bloodstone person could be really nice, but still... if he was even slightly like Morion he would rather be careful then sorry...
Bloodstone had been working around the house, cleaning stuff up. There had not been any major updates lately but one day, in the afternoon to be specific, the berserker saw a limousine pulling up to the shack. It looked like the car that Morion used but the gem that stepped out was one unfamiliar to him "Hm...well, this should be interesting" He looked from a second floor window before walking downstairs, making his way to the front door. Octi wasn't sure what to do, if he should get a weapon out or what. He decided to play it cool and sit down in one of the couches near the door, waiting just in case there would be something else coming

"Oh, hello mister Bloodstone, sir..."
He greeted the Gem siting on a couch near the entrance to his house. He was quite nervous, it was obvious. Even a blind person would have spotted that.
"I am a Fire Opal... but I'm called Chip, because I was chipped before I could emerge from Kindergarden... and... I... I was told that you might be able to help me... sir... please?"
As always he was very, very nervous around Gems he didn't know. And not every day he was going to ask someone to help him get healed. He just hoped this Bloodstone will help him. After all he had no reason to do so. Still, Morion told him, that this Bloodstone is a nice guy. And even though Chip didn't need to breathe right now he was holding his breath...
Bloodstone chuckled and smiled, nodding at Joseph. "Very well, thank you Joseph. Pleasure as always to see you." He took the gifts and set them down, letting the Fire Opal in "Don't be so nervous, it's okay. I'm a friend." Octi could tell that Chip was really, really nervous, "I know how to help you, yes. I doubt Morion told you, but I know a place that can fix up gems like yourself." Bloodstone sat down in a chair and looked up at Chip "There's a fountain we can warp to that's sort of a neutral zone. Both the rebels and 'loyalists' have used it to heal anyone who's glitching, possibly corrupted..or chipped." He smiled up at the Fire Opal "I can take you there if you want"

Chip tried to calm down a little, but he was just nervous around anyone he didn't know. But Bloodstone's "dont be nervous" helped a little.
"Well if you'd be willing to help me... I ... I would really be grateful. It's... difficult to exist chipped... and even though I'm a little afraid I think I would like to be healed..."
He said. He was still afraid, that it will change him even without collecting his shards... it was scary thought. After all he was who he was... and he wasn't sure, he wanted to risk being someone else... he certainly sounded unsure.
"And... are you sure the rebels will let me go there? I don't really like fighting..."
"I understand..." Bloodstone smiled and nodded, sighing "Being chipped is never good for any gem. In my opinion, no gem deserves to be hurt in that way." Octi chuckled and smiled "Don't worry, the rebels will let you go in there if I'm with you. Besides, even if they do decide to fight, I'm very capable for doing so. After all, I was a former berserker for Yellow Diamond. I can handle myself in a fight, don't you worry about me. I'll protect you" He patted Chip on the shoulder "The healing process is easy anyway. All it is, is that you walk into the fountain, let yourself be healed, and then walk right back out. Simple as that, don't worry!"

Chip felt a little safer, when Bloodstone guaranteed his safety. He looked very powerful to be sure.
"Well I am not afraid that it will hurt... or something like that... I was like this since I was made... I'm afraid, that it will... change me. That it will change who I am... I have no idea what effect it might have on me... restoring piece I was missing all my life... "
He said completely honestly. After all he had no experience in this area... and Morion scared him a little with the thought. Sure, he was talking about being changed if he collected all of his shards and then get healed with them... but still...
"Do you know what might happen?"
He asked. He was worried and if Bloodstone was the guardian of the shrine he might know more...
"It won't change who you are, you're not going to lose any memories or disappear or anything like that" Bloodstone sighed and smiled "All it should do is fix that little crack your gem has, and you should be good as new. Last gem I helped, she was healed and was good as new. Honestly, I'm surprised you haven't glitched or anything like that, some gems tend to do that whenever their gem is cracked." Octi admittedly wasn't sure why Chip hadn't had that happen to him yet. "As far as I know, you should be back to normal safe and sound, and your form should not change from any way that it looks at the moment. That's all I can guarantee"
Post by Chip the Fire Opal on Oct 14, 2016 18:53:11 GMT
"I am not cracked... part of me is just... missing... and that I am not glitching? Yeah... I miss huge part of things I should know... It takes a hell of a concentration to hold my form and I look like I'm a kid... so I think that isn't normal... but since I am like this since I was created i think I just got used to it... "
He turned and showed his chipped gem. With a chunk of an upper part just gone. Only for an instant, he felt quite vulnerable like this.
"I got damaged before I emerged from the Kindergarden... I was told it was because a landslide, but Morion thinks it was sabotage from Crystal Gems... I don't think it's important... It happened and thanks to you it might soon be just a past..."
He shrugged. The reason why it happened wasn't important...
"I see..." Bloodstone nodded and sighed "Morion tends to think that most things involving gems from Homeworld getting hurt have to do with Crystal Gems. I apologize for that. But If it's only parts that you're missing...hm...I'd assume the fountain would still have effects as normal and make you yourself again. Whether it would add in new personalities, memories, and other things I can't say." He felt at the chip for a second, tracing where it was that the gem was missing "I'll still help you though, don't worry" Octi smiled and patted Chip on the shoulder "If nothing else, I want to see what happens. This could be more information to know in general for gems that need to heal"

"It seems he hates Crystal Gems strongly... but I don't... I told him several times, that this war doesn't concern me... I won't fight on either side."
He explained his position. Actually, Chip admired that Crystal Gems were willing to face the entire Gem empire to protect a single planet. He would, of course, never told this to Morion, since his reaction would probably be quite... volatile.
"Well... I suppose we will see if I came out healed... or if someone else came out..."
He tried to sound brave, but he wasn't probably fooling anyone else. Deep inside him his desire to be healed fought with the fear of loosing who he was. After all, loosing who he was wasn't that different from death... something he was avoiding for years...
"I see...personally, I just fight with whatever side I feel I might benefit from. If it's Homeworld, it's homeworld and vice versa" Bloodstone shrugged. That's how he was going to fight in all of this until the time to make a decision finally came. "Morion only hates them because of the connection he still has to Homeworld in my opinion." Octi sighed, hoping that was the truth "And I suppose that's all we can do, wait and see. If someone else..does come out, I will do my best to try to remind you of the gem that you were before all of this happened. But let us hope it does not come to that in the first place, alright?"

"Strange... Morion was speaking really highly of you... but if I just suggested to him that I would do something for the rebels he would probably snapped me in half. Morion somehow think of me as his apprentice, so that gives me one option - to be loyal to the Diamonds..."
He said even though he had no love for the Diamonds and wasn't planning on changing that.
"Thanks... I hope it won't do anything like that... but I have no idea how the healing shrine works... and I'm pretty sure that I wasn't design to look and act this way... so hopefully I won't become the Diamond loving perfect soldier or something like that... but I guess I have to hope for the best and prepare for the worst... so... is it far?"
Somehow he doubted there was a warp pad right next to it. If it were, Morion would sent some bomb over... or army of thugs... or somthing like that...
"Morion speaks highly of me for reasons that don't involve my loyalty. Believe me, he's tried constantly to make sure that my 'independent" stance moves over to Homeworld." Octavian blushed heavily and shrugged "My suggestion, is to stay safe and go with an option that can make sure you don't get shattered, poofed, or anything like that. If nothing else, keep note of all the alliances that you make. That's what I'm doing." He shrugged and shook his head "The shrine's not far, I have a warp pad nearby we can use and after that, it's a walk that would only take about five or ten minutes. It's not that far...are you okay with doing this? We don't have to go if you don't want to"
Melody: Hi! Yep, that is true
Dec 30, 2019 10:51:32 GMT
Melody: honestly the site is not very active, but I try to make sure that every new player is doing okay
Dec 30, 2019 10:52:55 GMT
Melody: so feel free to message me here or on the discord if Njrk (the owner) is not answering
Dec 30, 2019 10:53:30 GMT
Melody: Also, you have got a decent app Chatoyant. I don't think you will have problems with being accepted. I am only not sure about your weapon, in the show it was very op, Njrk will have to take a closer look
Dec 30, 2019 11:07:42 GMT
Melody: It might also be good to state if you made the art for your Aquamarine or not
Dec 30, 2019 11:09:33 GMT
Fulgurite: Always wonderful to see new users. The shoutbox is still somewhat in use but the more reliable chat is the discord channel. But either way, welcome to the site.
Dec 30, 2019 11:29:49 GMT
Chatoyant Aquamarine: Thank you! Yes, that's the thing I'm still unsure about as well. I tried looking into other tractor beam and levitation based abilities that have been approved on this site and modeled and tried to nerf mine based on those. Will have to see!
Dec 30, 2019 12:58:23 GMT
Chatoyant Aquamarine: Ah, and that's true. The art's mine, could go edit that into the app before I forget. x)
Dec 30, 2019 12:59:32 GMT
Melody: I think it is good. Njrk already said it in chatbox that he is pretty busy, but I will try to inform him on discord about your app
Dec 30, 2019 13:08:05 GMT
Melody: I have got an idea. Njrk in some threads suggests that abilities/weapons could have a cooldown. It could be a nice way to nerf your weapon, but not too much. For example, maybe after using it in 2 posts it will shut down on its own for one post?
Dec 30, 2019 13:15:38 GMT
Melody: it is just a suggestion, I really don't know what Njrk will say about it
Dec 30, 2019 13:16:43 GMT
Melody: time measures, weight and stuff like that are nice, but they don't always transfer well into the roleplay. Time is especially a tricky part, that is why we usually use posts instead
Dec 30, 2019 13:20:04 GMT
Chatoyant Aquamarine: Understandable that people would be busy around this time of the year, I don't mind if I have to wait a little. A cooldown could be a good idea if it's deemed that the weapon could use a little more nerfing. I'll keep that in mind!
Dec 30, 2019 13:31:27 GMT
njrk97: Ill try and look at it tomorrow, but yeah the gem wand presents some issues, its sorta why i avoided the more modern gem tech on the site IE widespread Destablizers. Like they exist but since Pink is not Dead the Resource issues and tech focus of Era 2
Dec 31, 2019 1:08:37 GMT
njrk97: has not become that prevalent.
Dec 31, 2019 1:08:54 GMT
Chatoyant Aquamarine: I'll try to make some adjustments beforehand. I’ll let the original description stay as it is so you can read it but I’ll send some notes to you so that you don’t have to start from a scratch.

Flurry: I knew that was coming

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
