"It's great that you're so hopeful like that Chip... I don't think that we`ll ever be able to stop the corruption, but sometimes, I just try to ignore that, because, feeling bad about something doesn't help. So, I try to think about positive things, like my friends and how we're totally gonna save the earth someday! " Flurry said. "And if we can beat all of the corrupted gems, maybe nobody else will have to get corrupted! Then... at least all of the gems on earth will be okay..." Flurry said it happily, but as the words left her mouth she looked gloomy.
Flurry looked into the dark abyss, for a second she looked scared, but a dutiful glare came over her. She nodded and turned to Chip. "I'm ready! "

"Someone has to be hopeful... since most people are talking about war and destruction and everything... I hope for the best. For gems, humans and Earth of course... "
He said, while they entered the ship. The room they were in was overgrown with dense vegetation. It was so ancient, that there wasn't any clues about what was this room's purpose. The only corridor leaving the room was also overgrown, with door half closed...
"Well... this complicates matters a little. I didn't expect plant life to get inside... I could burn it off, but I don't want to hurt plants... so I guess we will have to... get through... somehow... "
He said and made few steps forward. His movement activated lights... well some of them, most didn't work. It was a minor miracle that anything worked in this ancient piece of trash...
Flurry looked at the door for a long time. She tried to think of some impressive and genius plan to open the door, but nothing was coming to mind. Suddenly she gasped with inspiration, getting an idea. She reached into her bag and dug around for a few seconds, a smile on her face. She suddenly pulled out a wrench and posed with it proudly. It seemed as if her plan was going to be half decent, but then she charged at the door and hit it several times as hard as she could.
"YA YA YA YA YAAAA!" She yelled. After a few minutes she got tuckered out and started breathing heavily. She turned to Chip and tried to say something but was busy catching her breath. This was odd, since gems didn't need to breathe. "Maybe... you could use your fire... huff... I think... it's the only way..."

Before they could even begin to explore the first room, Flurry took it in her own hands. She assaulted the door using a wrench? But instead of doing some mechanic stuff, she just used it as a club. She used furry attack... but it wasn't very effective. But he admired her spirit.
"Well I can do it... but be careful. It might be slightly dangerous... "
And it was an exhausting process, but that couldn't be helped. He wasn't going to be stopped by first door their encounter. He made sure that Flurry went to safer area, before he blasted the door with his fire powers. For a moment the room got a lot brighter and also quite warmer. The door were ancient, damaged by the crash so it wasn't all that hard to blast them to oblivion. Unfortunately some vegetation took the damage also. And some parts were on fire...
"Alright Chip!" Flurry ran to a steel rod that had collapsed and was lying on it's side. The rod was quite far from where Chip was, and Flurry was confident that it was safe to hide behind it. She looked over the rod and watched with wide eyes, expectantly. Chip made sure that she was safe before he began, as eager as she was, she was willing to wait. A wave of heat washed over her. Her eyes widened at the display of destruction.
"That was... So cool!" Flurry said, running to Chip. "How did you get a power like that! That's awesome, you were just like BOOOSH and you blew it up!" Flurry said, pumping her fists. Her fists slowly fell as he seemed pessimistic about his abilities. "I think they're really great Chip. We wouldn't be able to get in without you, I'd do anything to have powers like you..."

Chip wasn't entirely truthful though. He liked being powerful and he loved fire. Parts of it... aspects of it. Fire had mind of it's own, one time you were controlling it, next time it was controlling you. When Chip got angry he became fire - dangerous, powerful and uncontrollable. The only thing that gave him comfort was, that he was now able to use fire to heal, not only to destroy...
"Well as every single gem I was created for some purpose. I have no idea what it was, but I think we can assume it required a whole lot of fire. And I had a good teacher, who taught me how to use and refine my powers."
He said, extinguishing all the remaining fire with single wave of his hand, mostly just to show of.
"We should really be careful from now on... even ancient colony ships had some defences... we might encounter some traps... secret guns or some kinds of guardians..."
He warned her, peaking through the blasted doors. The ships seemed much bigger then from the outside... strange. Perhaps an optical illusion? Or was a bug chunk of the ship under ground, invisible from outside? He saw pieces of long shattered gem, just outside the door. Must've died while the ship crash landed... he quickly shoved them away with his leg, so Flurry didn't see them. He didn't want her to see a shattered gem... not if he could avoid it.
"Seems like this corridor is quite safe... at least this part..."
Flurry gasped, immediately her attention was taken off of what was going on, and to a small detail in Chip's words. She really did act like a child.
"Wait... do you mean that there is a guy out there that can teach gems how to use their powers!? He helped you with yours... so he could totally help me with mine right?! Then I could be an awesome gem like you! " Flurry said excitedly. "Well, our mission will always come first, but after that do you wanna introduce me? It would be awesome if I could somehow learn to use my powers better... Oh I can't wait! You`ll take me straight to him after the mission okay? It's a deal!"
After hearing the fact that the entrance of the ship was safe, she dashed ahead of him, leaving no room for objections.

"Yeah, there are a lot of guys who could help you with your powers... and I am pretty sure you can find some among Crystal gems... "
There was no chance in hell he was going to introduce Flurry to Morion. In the best case scenario he would use her as a battery... in the worst case he would probably shatter her after using her to wipe out a big chunk of Crystal gems. He started to see why others didn't take her on missions... especially since she just ran past him, right in the potentially extremely dangerous corridor.
"Wait, there could be traps!"
He yelled, but it was too late. As Flurry dashed past him a big hole just opened in the ground... right before her...
Flurry tried to stop, but the sudden gaping abyss in front of her was too sudden. She plummeted down the hole, screaming at the top of her lungs . Only by landing on her cloud did she prevent herself from getting hurt. It was pitch black at the bottom of the hole. She started to step out of her cloud, walking around the dungeon.
She heard a noise in the distance. Normally she would wait for Chip to come and help her, but the noise was a familiar one. It was a corrupted gem. She ran down a hallway, desperately trying to escape the beast. Turning several corners, she was definitely lost, but she had no time to consider this. She tripped on a stone, falling face-first. The beast was nearly upon her.

Before he could do anything, Flurry just vanished. It took Chip a whole second before he could even react. Then he quickly ran to the hole, jumping after her. Thanks to his wings he was able to land safely... safely in the middle of at least three corrupted monsters. And he saw at least one running towards Flurry. This place wasn't just dangerous... it was a death trap.
Chip didn't have time to stay here and fight. He had to save Flurry. A giant fire blast shook the entire ship, throwing all the monsters around him away, though not harming them much. With the path clear for now he flew as fast as he could, catching the monster just as it was just above Flurry. In light he summoned his lance, crashing into the monster, impaling it and poofing it. He landed just few meters behind Flurry... not exactly gloriously...
As she wandered the hallways she heard echoing monster cries. When she had entered the labyrinth she could only hear the monsters behind her, now they seemed to come from all sides. She was unsure which direction to go, so she turned and looked in all directions. She then started to cry softly, regretting her hasty move. This didn't last long as she heard a familiar voice. Following the sound she ran around several corners until she saw him. She then jumped and hugged Chip tightly.
"I'm so sorry Chip! I should have been more careful!" Flurry said, practically in tears.
That moment, a clanging noise was heard. The light in the room quickly faded. The cause was soon obvious, the hole that she had fallen into was closing on them.

Chip quickly bubbled the gem, sending it home. It was safer then leaving here to reform. "Please, be more careful, this place is deadly... there might be traps everywhere."
He said, realising that the light was fading. It seems like the hole was closing, but they didn't have time to get back there, especially since there were 3 or more monsters. They had to find another way out. Chip raised his hand and a golden flame started to burn on it, illuminating the corridor. "Ok, we me should go and find some way out... unless you want to stay here forever. Which I really really don't..."
He said. The monsters weren't probably following them right now, but that could change quickly. He stared walking... he had no idea if he was going the right direction... but what could he do...
The monsters' howls continued to echo throughout the cave. As the two gems walked, a frigid breeze blew past them. As Flurry shivered, she summoned her cloud, which she used to float, and to keep warm. Although the wind blowing against her cloud made it significantly slower than walking alone she needed to keep warm. Even though gems don't need to be warm in order to survive, they could definitely feel it.
"H-hey do you think we could set up a camp in order to make a plan? " Flurry said, through chattering teeth. "I-If we just walk around like this it might be really hard to find our way back o-out..." Her cloud had formed a small pair of earmuffs on her head.

They were lost in the deep bowels of some ancient ship. Perhaps it wasn't even a colony ship, it could've been something entirely different. And with all those monsters inside it was possible it was some kind of troop transport? Or perhaps the monsters found some way inside and just used it as a lair...
"You want to set up a camp? What do you mean by that? Do you have a tent somewhere? I don't see any wood around to set up a fire... or do you just want to stop for a while? We can do that. But be careful about the monsters."
He smiled and stopped. His golden flame was still burning strong, since when he wasn't using it to heal it was actually quite easy to maintain, draining only small amount of power.
Flurry shivered in the cold and moved off into a smaller cave, so small that they could see the back. This was useful, as it gave them view at everything that would be coming toward them, yet also it concealed them from their attackers. She warmed herself by Chip's fire.
"Hey... why do you think that the Diamonds are attacking earth..? I know that this is a crazy question to ask, but It doesn't make sense to me. The humans are really nice and have cool stuff... I feel like if they met humans they would decide not to hurt anybody. " She said, rubbing her hands together to stay warm. "I met a guy a while ago, he wanted to hurt my friend because he wouldn't give him information... I don't think I`ll ever see him again... "
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.
