They hid in some weird cave like place. Chip had no idea what was it doing here, but it was probably dug by some monster? Chip had no idea, but it was quiet handy right now.
"Well... are they? I mean I never saw a Diamond attacking Earth. They want to hollow it though, which will wipe out all life on Earth. I think they don't see life on Earth as important or even noticeable? They can only see the resources this planet offers. But I am not a Diamond... I can only guess..."
He wasn't sure how to respond to this.
"It's too bad gems are acting like this to each other... like there's not enough space for all of us..."
Flurry looked at the floor for a long time, saddened by the weight of the truth. She suddenly turned to Chip, ready to speak.
"Chip... this is why I am a Crystal gem. The Diamonds aren't perfect beings... they're ignoring all of the humans... and they're... they're... " Flurry hesitated. She balled her fists and glared at the angry thoughts brewing in her mind. "They're evil Chip! They're just a bunch of evil gems who are in control because they were made first! They are far from perfect, and they don't deserve to lead our species. They are just monsters... Chip... I can't ever server somebody like that. Even if there aren't that many of us, this is why I have to stand up for what I believe in, because if I don't, then nobody else will join the cause! "

Chip listened to Flurry, very carefully.
"Yes, I know that Diamonds are not perfect... nobody is. Everyone is making mistake and I'm against the destruction of Earth and life on it. I thought once I would join Crystal gems... but the only ones I've met refused me, because I was chipped... I was useless to them. And sad truth is, that it were Crystal gems that caused me to be chipped. It was one of their attempt to shut down the Kindergarden. So how could I be with someone, who hurt the innocent and then refuses to help them?"
He explained where he stood.
"I hope, that Pink Diamond who is the most kind among Diamonds could find a way to use Earth without killing anyone... I don't want anyone to get hurt... humans, gems, animals... anyone... "
Flurry was in tears now, she clenched her fists and they shook. After a long pause she looked up at Chip, balling her fists. She was glaring as tears streamed down her cheeks. She remained silent for a moment before she decided to speak.
"Don't you dare say that about the crystal gems! You don't even know them, what they're like!" Flurry yelled angrily, but the tears rolling down her cheeks showed that she clearly didn't want to be yelling at him. "Sure they turned off the Kindergatens, but there are trillions of us, and if the Kindergartens stayed working, then all of the humans would be getting hurt! They could be gone by now!"
"We want to help the humans because they were going to go extinct! We're brave and even though we aren't as strong as the diamonds or some soldiers from homeworld doesn't mean that we're dumb to fight for the humans! We do it because they need us, I know we're weak, but that's why we're so great, because we fight, even when it's hard! You have all of these amazing powers but you're mad at us because we did the right thing!" She shouted. "If you think that My-no... Pink Diamond, is going to help the humans, you're wrong, she wants to make a colony here and hollow out the earth! Don't you dare say that you care about the earth when you aren't trying to stop it. You can help! I can't... but I still try!"

Flurry got really emotional really quickly. She was actually yelling at him right now. But Chip said nothing but the truth... he wasn't going to apologise for it...
"Perhaps I met the bad ones, but everything I said is completely true. I feel for your cause... I really do. I would love to see Earth saved, but I just... "
He fell silent. There was no point in telling her, telling her, that Crystal gems were doing a poor job, that they hurt a lot of innocent. He had to believe in someone... and Pink Diamond just seemed like the best choice, even when it was a risky one...
"Yes, you are very brave bunch, I grant you that, but Pink Diamond and her fleet has arrived... she could wipe the entire planet from orbit, you, me... all of us... and then build a colony on top of our charred gemstones... yet she didn't... isn't that saying something too? I just don't think things are easy... "
"You're afraid Chip... it's right to be afraid. it's not like I don't know that the crystal gems are too weak, I know that! Nobody needs to tell me, I know it more than anyone... If we all decide that it's over and just give up... then it really will be over. Our strength isn't what keeps us alive, it's our hope! That's why it makes me mad when gems like you don't help, because if all of you did, we could save the world and the diamonds wouldn't hurt anybody. "
"I'm sorry I got mad at you... but what I said is true also! If you joined us, you'd be a huge help! " Flurry said, wiping her eyes. "Being a hero isn't about knowing you can win, it's about knowing you will probably lose and trying anyway. If you don't risk everything for what you believe in, then you`ll never make a change! If everybody fought without fear then things like this wouldn't happen. Homeworld would be a place where everybody could work together, not where some gems just... took over and forced everyone to do what they wanted! "

"Yes, I am afraid, but not for myself... I will always survive, because I was made to survive... I am worried about people around me. I am Fire Opal, Flurry... that means, that fire is a big part of me... and if I ever get too angry or distressed... well the fire has a will of it's own... I can't control it. My mentor, Morion, is the only gem powerful enough to stop me if my fire got out of control... if I joined with you, sooner or later I would hurt someone... perhaps even someone I care about..."
He explained. Granted, there were most likely gems quite powerful among Crystal gems, but there were also quite a lot of weaker gems...
"So I wouldn't be much of a help... I would be a constant source of danger..."
He added. He would lie, if he said that the offer wasn't tempting...
"Well, I'm sure you`ll be a great help anyway, if I ever need you, I can just call right? Then you will be helping anyway! I guess I don't blame you for not joining us, but I guess we can say you've joined unofficially! You can be our spy on the inside! You don't need to be near us to help us. " She said cheerily. Suddenly a loud thud was heard. Flurry stopped talking to peer around a corner. Light was streaming through from above. There was a way out! Flurry's eyes lit up with delight.
"C'mon Chip! We can get out of here! " She ran around the corner, giggling. Suddenly, a large, rat-like corrupted gem was in front of her. Flurry screamed as it advanced. She hadn't seen it until it was too late to run.

Chip rolled his eyes for a second. Yes, Flurry was his friend, but they were on the different sides of this conflict, that was the sad truth.
"Yeah... if you ever need my help just give me a call and I will do whatever I can."
He promised. If it will be possible, he will come. Hopefully. Flurry was quite active, like always, already going somewhere, before Chip could even follow her she was attacked once again... this time by something that looked like a large rat. Chip didn't even had time to summon his weapon or wings. He just tackled the beast as quickly as possible. Not strongly enough to actually injure it, but enough to get it's attention...
Flurry slowly opened her eyes, lucky to be alive. She got to her knees and noticed that Chip had tackled it. She used her hands to push off of the hard, metal floor of the labyrinth to stand up. She knew that he had to help, but how...? She charged toward the creature, screaming as if she was letting out a war cry.
"Flurry attack! " She yelled, grabbing it's tail with both arms. She brought the tail to her mouth and bit down. Gnawing the tail she laughed as if she was causing intense pain to the monster. It was a long while before she noticed how useless her attack was. She looked at the beast, discouraged.
"Hey maybe we can just fly out really quick? " Flurry suggested. "I don't want it to close again! "

Chip got thrown against the wall be the monster. Before he could react in any way the monster tackled him against the wall, injuring him. Fortunately Flurry started distracting the monster by... eating it's tail? It worked at least in the way the monster turn it's head to check what was going on, giving Chip enough time to summon his lance and piercing it's head, poofing it.
Without any more words he picked up Flurry, summoned his wings and flew towards the light. It was different hole then before, but he didn't care much about that now. There were other monsters down there and he couldn't fight all of them... The hole was smaller then the first one, but Chip was ready to push through.
"Hold on tight, this will be close!"
He warned her before he flew into the hole... he fitted only barely, scratching himself few times. Both of them landed in room, that was also full of vegetation... but before it got overgrown it was probably some kind of warehouse? It was full of ancient junk...
Flurry hopped off of his back and looked around. She started to walk around the room and hum. She seemed to be happy to be out of the labyrinth, so happy in fact, that she was humming a little song. She could have also been interested in the artifacts about them that could have been considered as useless. Flurry messed with some of the vegetation growing on the walls. She would tinker with the objects on the floor, turning them over and rubbing them to test their textures.
"Woah... I wonder what this stuff was from. Do you think we can find a way out? We might need more gems to help investigate this ship." Flurry said. "I could call some members of my team! We could all search together! "

Chip sat down for a moment. The monster had to have a head from steel, since it was quite painful, getting pinched against the wall. Stupid monsters... he was fighting them a lot lately, and most of the times he got injured in same way. Nothing like his little brother caused him, but still... in the meantime Fluffy was running all around the room, searching and playing with the things from the warehouse "I had no idea what is this stuff... probably some kinds of old tools? Probably hundreds of years old..."
He picked a random thing from one of the crates. It was looking like a big spoon with a hole inside it? He haven't even slightest clue of what it was or what was it for.
"I have no idea what it is... but there must be something inside this ship, something useful... but the ship is much bigger then I thought... "
Flurry looked at it, she too was stumped. It seemed to be a human-made product, that was all that her deductive skills could come up with. She sat it down, looking around the room.
"I think that we should go back and regroup... this place is dangerous and super huge! " Flurry exclaimed. She noticed that some vines had fallen into her hair. She brushed them aside in disgust, then smiled at Chip. "Cool idea right? We could bring lotsa gems and cover this place really fast! That job may need some fighting, but I'm sure that the crystal gems can beat any of these monsters! " She pumped her fists.
"Whaddaya say Chip? You think it's a good idea? " She asked.

"I think you're right, we really should leave this place, the thing is I have no idea what way is the correct way... I lost my barrings when we were running through that labyrinth... so if we go through that door we have the same change of getting out as well as explore the ship further..."
He said. He saw only one door in this room... so they will have to go through them. Then they will have to choose which way they should go. He didn't want to leave though... and he didn't want Crystal gems around... this was his find, he wanted to explore it... and salvage what he could. But he didn't want to sound like a jerk... "If we got out, we could find ourselves some help... "
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.
