"Well I think we should go. We aren't going to get out if we hang out here, and we can't go back. I know that you lost something in the maze back there, but with all of the monsters I don't think that it's a good idea... " Flurry hopped onto her cloud, feeling comfortable to use her ability once more. "Now if we go through this door we might get attacked by monsters, but at least we`ll make progress. We also have the chance of finding the way out, so I think we should take the risk."
She pumped her fists and smiled in a determined sort of way. She picked up a small object and brushed moss off of it. She decided to keep it as a souvenir.

"You're right, standing here won't solve anything... "
He said and tried to opened the door. Of course, the door was stuck. Chip summoned lance and stabbed the door... it had no effect. Well there was a small scratch... but only really really small... "Well, we're stuck here... "
He said to Flurry. The door were quite massive and powerful. He was quite sure, that he would be able to burn through them... but he was also quite sure that he would be almost useless after that. But if they won't find any other way to open it this was still a possibility...
"Any ideas? I don't think our communicators will work here... and this junk won't probably help us much..."
He picked up another piece of garbage. Whatever it was it's power source was long depleted...
Flurry thought long and hard. She hummed loudly as she tought, tapping her head and pursing her lips trying to draw out an idea for their escape.
"You're right, this stuff won't help at all... " She said, still thinking. Suddenly, her eyes widened as she thought of an idea.
"Oh maybe we could- " Flurry suddenly stopped talking. It was like the breath in her lungs had suddenly been thrust out. Her eyelids lowered and she glared at nothing in particular in frustration. She blushed and looked at the floor. "That's a really bad idea... it's hard to think of something. "
"I guess that all we can do is have you try to open the door with your fire magic... In a small space like this it could be dangerous, but we should try anyway the only oth- ...there's no other way! "

"You're right... I can open the door... but it will drain me a lot... you will have to look after me when I'm done... those door are quite tough..."
He said and stood before the door.
"For your own safety please hide behind one of those crates... it should be ok, but... just to be sure. I would hate to burn you by some weird accident..."
He said and summoned his lance. He was much better at channelling fire through it. He pointed it against the door... and bathed the door in fire. Quite quickly the door started to bright red... it was some weird alloy, that was quite heat resistant, but it wasn't Chip resistant... or perhaps resistant, but not immune. It could take a while though...
After 10 minutes Chip looked exhausted... the door were almost white... but there was no sign of melting so far... whatever was it made of it was quite durable... and he felt his strength was draining away quickly... and he wasn't quite sure it this door was even melt-able... he summoned second lance and just charged the door... the lances cut through the half-melted door like through butter...
His lances disappeared... Chip even glitched a few times... he was so exhausted...
"Alright, I've got this! " Flurry started to run behind one of the crates.
Flurry aimed to dash behind one of the crates, but the flames were much larger than she had expected. As she ran she felt the heat behind her, she wasn't fast enough to elude the flames. Flurry crossed her arms and her gem glowed. What appeared to be a white bubble appeared around her. It blocked the fire, but she immediately seemed drained. The bubble shone brightly while it was intact, it may have had some abilities other than simply blocking attacks. At any rate, Flurry was too weak to stand and collapsed on the floor near Chip. Both gems were exhausted in the middle of a dangerous colony ship, with the door broken down. Anything could come in. They were at the mercy of whatever came through the door.
"Heh... this was a bad idea... I'm sorry Chip. " Flurry said, smiling to try keeping the mood happy.

They were both exhausted in the middle of monster infested labyrinth... shiny... just shiny. What could possibly go wrong.
"Nice bubble... is it new?"
He asked. It was nice seeing Flurry discovering some new powerful abilities... even when it was only for defence. It made sense, that healer would have some defence... he was probably the only healer who was more offence guy... how strange was that...
"Let's get out..."
He mustered his strength, helped Flurry on her legs and lead her on. He had no idea how long he could do this, but he had to do something. He wasn't going to stay here, waiting for something to find them. Not now, not ever. He will get himself and Flurry out if it's the last thing he'll ever do...
Flurry tried to move her arms and legs. They were numb, and difficult to move. When she did succeed in moving her limbs they hurt. It felt like several tiny needles were stabbing them as they tried to be of use to her. The feeling could be comparable to waking after sleeping on your limbs. You would have to wake them through several minutes of excruciating movements. Flurry grunted as she flailed about.
"Oh... when I use my healing bubble I can heal all of the gems inside while protecting them, but If I do then I can't move for quite a while. " Flurry said, wincing. "This is how useless I am... "
Flurry sat there for a long while, unable to move. Even as Chip attempted to help her up she had difficulty walking. Her legs wobbled. Normally, she wouldn't have been able to get up in the first place, but through sheer will she forced herself.

"Heh... I will tell you secret Flurry... something only 2 other gems know... but please, don't tell it anyone... I can heal gems too. And you know me... I am quite powerful gem... and yet... I can heal only 1 gem at a time... and it has to be poofed so I can heal it... and it drains me for hours... or even more... you can heal multiple gems at once, and you don't have to poof them to do that. Your healing powers are leagues above mine..."
He said. It was no small dead, be able to heal multiple gems... "If we get out of this you might help me with my healing skills... teach me lesson or two perhaps?"
They were slowly moving forward... quite slowly... but surely...
Flurry seemed surprised at this. Her eyes widened as she thought about it.
"Really? Well... also when I heal a poofed gem, they unpoof. " Flurry said softly. "It doesn't work as well to heal them then, but some gems say that it's kind of like they have a clone helping them fight because of my abilities... Still, I wish that I could actually fight like you Chip. Usually if my buddies are having trouble the enemy is too strong for me to help fight off... "
Flurry was quiet for a while. She giggled at his next question.
"No! Don't say If, say when! I think we can do it. " Flurry said, smiling now. "Also, I really don't think I can teach this to you. "

"So you see... you are quite skilled healer. Far better then I am... and healers are quite rare among gems... and even rarer on planet Earth. So you are even more important then you thought."
He said trying to raise her self confidence a little. They missed few branching corridors, but he still continues forward...
"You're right... it's only a matter of time... it might take as a while, but we will find our way out. We should be really careful though..."
He said, but once he finished another roar shook the crashed ship. It was close, but where? The echo made it impossible to know from what direction it came so he just continued forward... it was as good direction as any...
Flurry didn't know what to say. She had learned however how stupid she had been to tell so many gems that she was a healer. While she felt bad about being so obvious to strangers, she knew that she would never be so open again.
"I guess you're right... " Flurry said softly.
Flurry decided that Chip was right to keep going forward. The corridors frightened her as they could be potential monster caves.
"Yeah Chip! We can find our way out... it will just take a really long time... in this huge...scary... monster cave... " Flurry shivered.
Finally feeling able to stand she hobbled to her feet. She attempted to produce her cloud but she was still too weak. She was finally in better spirits when she heard the roar.

"Yeah... I think I can go faster... just hold tight..."
He tried to go faster, but he was still quite drained. His energy was returning but only slowly. Still... the threat of monster attack forced him to drain his power levels even further. The roar came again... this time it was stronger... and that meant possibly closer. Chip felt it... it was hunting them...
"Ok... I don't want to disturb you, but if the monster found us you need to run... I will... deal with it and find you later... deal?"
He wasn't going to let Flurry be shattered here. But if the monster attack them... he was quite weak, he wasn't sure if he could defeat it. He could surely slow it down for some time though...
Flurry held on tight as she could, which wasn't very tight. She too was a bit drained and could not get a good grip. Fortunately due to his exhaustion the speed that he was moving at was easy for her to not fall off. She looked around, as if she would see the monster in the murky blackness of the colony ship.
"Alright... I`ll hold on as tight as I can... " She said.
Chip advised her to run and leave him if a monster were to come. Knowing that Chip wouldn't be able to fight off a monster in his current state she couldn't agree with his idea.
"...No! If I run, you`ll never make it out! And even If I ran, I'd be even worse off, I'd be against this place alone. I know that you can't fight too well right now, but you can definitely fight better than me! " Flurry noticed that most of her strength had already returned, by now she could summon a cloud. She didn't tell Chip that of course. "If we're going to get defeated by a monster down here then we're going to go down together! "

And of course Flurry had to be stubborn... because that would help both of them.
"Fine... if the monster come just... be careful. But I am pretty sure I could take any monster in this cursed death trap..."
He said so confidently, that someone might actually believe him. The truth was, he was drained even worse then he himself thought. But the flame still burned inside him strongly. It was just a matter of time before he will be perfectly ok again. The question was, if they will have enough time...
"And really, don't worry about me. I will be fine... we both will be... "
He said. If the monster really followed them it was quiet for now... that made Chip even more paranoid though... it could be anywhere now... waiting...
"Well Chip, it's what's best, I'm safer with you than just running around out there. I can't leave you... for both of our sakes... "
Flurry didn't cheer up. She remembered how Chip had looked after he unleashed the blast. She felt that she had completely recovered by now. She suddenly summoned her cloud and hopped onto it. In the same motion she grabbed Chip and pulled him onto it. She panted in exhaustion at having to lift a gem who was larger than her.
"Alright, we should be able to move faster like this, also you can get your energy back this way! " Flurry tried to try Chip's tactic on him by smiling confidently. She hoped that his reaction would be different than hers. She then also noticed how quiet the monster had become. She again tried to lighten the mood. "H-hey I think we escaped the monster! "

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
