The fire opal found himself in a forest. The forest was full of orange trees. It seemed as if it was fall. The air had a strange feel to it, an unreal feeling. It must be a dream. Looking through the trees there was no end, it was as if the trees stretched to infinity.
Suddenly, the trees rustled above him. A small kitten fell onto his head. A squeak noise emanated from the cat. It began to groom the gem's hair to make a comfortable seat for itself. Looking around one would notice that many kittens were falling from trees. It was...a kitten forest. This was a good dream! Well at least until he looked forward.
One tree had a hole in it, someone was standing in the hole. It was a gem that he had met once before. Sulfur! He looked as he had in the mirror, his face was in what appeared to be an actually pleasant smile... It was DISGUSTING. He stepped out of the hole and floated to the floor. The leaves blew out of the way as he landed.
"I heard you liked cats..." He mumbled. "Hello! I am here to have a conversation... Morion's request. You know of the healing fountain I presume? I am a cracked gem. You met my cracked form in my mansion. It is actually going to be spared just so you know, Morion and I made a deal. We are now both apprentices of him!" Sulfur clenched his fist in a hardy manner.
"He also requested that you accompany my cracked form and lead it to the mansion!" Sulfur said smiling. "What do you think?"

Chip appeared in forest... it was very pleasant, he always loved the forests in fall, since the colors of the leaves were... fiery... similar to his colors. It was so nice, that he didn't even question how he got here. He made few steps, before a kitten fell on his head, it was small and cute and soft... then more and more start felling out trees... this was getting just slightly suspicious. Could it be a dream?
Or more likely a nightmare, since he saw Sulfur, that creepy gem murdered from the Mansion... he started to spew some nonsense... fortunately here, in this forest with kittens all around he didn't look so dangerous and creepy... he was still ugly as death, but not scary.
"Oh yes, I like kittens... nice touch... and I know of the healing fountain, that's correct... and if you think, that I will help you or listen to you, you are not just cracked in the gem, but also in the head... if I ever see you again I will blast you to oblivion for trying to shatter me and for murdering that creepy old guy... so... nice talking to you, now go back to hell..."
Sulfur floated up into the air, hovering about a foot off of the ground. He pulled a sword from his gem and swung it about in the air.
"Yes... my cracked gem is on my head. I doubt that's what you meant." He turned in the air and floated up to Chip, stopping with their faces only about a foot apart. "I lost my butler because of you, don't pretend I'm enjoying this. Morion wanted you to take me to the fountain, I know the way I could go myself. I've plenty of reasons to despise you but I will put them behind me. I am not childish."
Sulfur tilted his head and floated closer. His pleasant smile had faded, his face was emotionless. It somehow looked more welcoming than his forced smile.
"Are you not a child, apprentice of Morion?" Sulfur asked in an accusing tone. "I don't need your help, but if I'm going to be under Morion with you then you might as well get used to me as I have with you."
He floated in a loop and laid on his back. He relaxed with his eyes closed.
"So.. what's it going to be?" He said opening one eye. "Are you going to come with me?"

"No, I meant you are crazy... and sadist... and you have no right to be angry at me... you were the one who trapped me in your stupid house and tried to kill me! And if you don't need my help, then stop bothering me, since I have no intention of helping you... "
He was quite puzzled, that this... thing had problems understanding it... Chip felt like he was quite specific in what he said...
"You don't get it... do you? You tried to shatter me! You killed human who tried to save me from you... I don't want to have ANYTHING to do with you... and if you cross my path I will show you, that playing with fire isn't a good idea... "
He was getting quite angry... it was probable, that in real word he started to burn his own bed right now... he seriously doubted Morion would go from "let' burn his place" to "you can be my other apprentice". And Morion was never ordering Chip to do anything... so why would he start now?
"I didn't trap you! My mansion is full of complicated magic! I just tried to make sure you wouldn't escape!" He grunted. "You would go and tell someone! I have many enemies Fire Opal! I don't need your help, Morion told me to ask for it!"
Sulfur clenched his fists.
"Why are you so stubborn!? Don't you see what I'm trying to do you twerp! I`m trying to make amends because it will help both of us!" He yelled. "Don't you see that this helps you aswell!? I'm going to come in contact with you on several occasions because I work for Morion! You are being completely childish in refusing my offer, it is a great labor for me to forgive you! I may be insane but that doesn't mean I can't harbor resentment against those who deserve it! Now stop being so difficult!"

"So... you trapped me there, because you were afraid, that I will tell your enemies about that place... I didn't even know you were there... or who you were... so if you let me out, I would just leave... instead, you tried to SHATTER ME! So, congratulation... you made a new enemy instead... with this attitude I'm not surprised, that you have many enemies..."
He said adamantly.
"Why am I so stubborn... hmmm let me think... could it have something to do with the fact, THAT YOU WERE TRYING TO MURDER ME!!! And you... dream-napped me! I see absolutely no reason, how would any of this help me... AND I DON'T NEED YOU TO FORGIVE ME, BECAUSE I DID NOTHING WRONG TO YOU!"
That stupid gem was... well, stupid. Chip had quite enough. He didn't said "sorry" even once! Why would Morion do something like this... they were planning on nuking his place... though Morion was an assassin, this guy could be too... there was a chance they found some common topic...
"Well I see what your standards are, and if you aren't open to change you aren't enlightened... I will find this fountain... and I will heal myself. I will find Morion and I will refrain from shattering you. But if you make a move on me... Morion and I both understand that bubbling a gem isn't always possible in any circumstance.." He said ominously while showing no emotion on his face. "Morion has supplied me with enough enemies to destroy. I am content. Don't trifle with me, I will do my best to avoid you because there are so many better uses of my time! If you really are as dull and stubborn as I think then stay away from me!"

"Who do you think you are talking to? I'm not afraid of you... your insults mean NOTHING to me. I have no idea why you came here... it certainly wasn't to apologise for what you've done... and until you do, I don't want to speak with you, I don't want to look at you. Oh and one thing... if I ever learn about you shattering anyone I will "make a move", be sure about it... but I think you won't like it at all... I'm not the scared gem I was when we first met... you should remember that... for your own good!"
He said. He very much intended to speak with Morion about this... and if it was true, that Morion hired this psychopath, he will change his mind about it. This monster wasn't good for anything... he was selfish, stupid and had absolutely no idea how to speak with others... Chip won't ever forget that this creature tried to kill him... and did kill that old creepy guy... and apparently felt no remorse for doing so...
"You haven't even met me. You don't even know what there is to be afraid of." He put his hands in his pockets and landed on the floor. "I simply am at the mercy of Morion to not assign me on a mission with you. It would be truly mind-numbing to be with such a numb of mind gem as yourself. If my insults really mean nothing to you then you don't care about what you cost me. You cost me my butler, who took a hit for you that would have finished you off... I don't know why he helped you, but if you would have stayed out of my mansion I wouldn't be alone... He was the only human that treated me with respect."
Sulfur walked toward Chip. He drew a sword from his shoulder.
"All gems deserve respect Fire Opal, even clods like you. I've given you a chance, you've done nothing but give me grief." He aimed the sword to the floor. "I'm going to end the dream. Final thoughts? No... you're too dull for that."
Post by Chip the Fire Opal on Nov 8, 2016 23:13:30 GMT
"It was you who killed him, not me... I was willing to die, rather then to damage other gem... because I don't believe in violence... but for you, I will make an exception. You're a murderer, a monster... and if I had to guess, he probably rather died, then being in your presence for another day... the only thing I wanted was to wait the storm inside... surely a crime punishable by death... "
He looked him straight to the eyes, without any fear.
"I don't care about you, nor your grief... you don't deserve it... I have zero respect for you. I gave you chance to apologise, to show me that, that you are capable of remorse... or anything beyond hate... you showed me nothing of the sort... leave, now... and never bother me again..."
He never felt so strongly about anything. This gem was a monster... a murderer and he despised him with every single part of his being...
Sulfur raised his sword in the air and glared at Chip.
"You know nothing of my thoughts... You know nothing of him... You don't know what it's like to have two minds in the same body... but what can I expect?" He hissed. All of the trees in the forest died. It became cold in the forest, the cats seemed unharmed though. "I hope that you mature at some point... there is hope for you Morion is your mentor. He is the only gem that I respect, his opinions are different than mine, but he's smart enough to know how the world works. Take advice from him and learn that will you? Do yourself a favor or you will be nothing but a disgrace to the one who is most likely the most intelligent gem you will meet! Good day to you child!"
He stabbed the forest floor with his sword. The floor shattered like glass revealing a black abyss under them. When they fell the dreamlike aura faded. The dream had ended, they were waking up.

"I know nothing about your thoughts? Well that's by design... I don't think anyone would want to know your thoughts... and oh... I wish I wouldn't know how it is to have to minds in one body..."
So... you didn't forget me yet? But why saying it to this abomination?
Chip felt really bad, when even the voice agreed with him... "Why am I even trying to defend myself from you?! Meh... the only thing I regret is talking to you in the first place, now be gone..."
With that he woke up... like he thought he got so angry, that his bed sheet was already catching fire... he had to put it down quickly, before the fire alarm go off, wake up the entire building and activating the fire sprinklers, destroying every piece of electronic he had...
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
