Fortunately for both of them Flurry regained her power quickly. She was able to summon her cloud, dragging Chip on it. When he didn't have to walk he could regain some of his energy. Hopefully... the cloud was also quicker then their slow pace. They flew (or levitated) forward only to enter a big room. It was a mess... but there was one obvious thing... on the floor there were several shattered gems... they just entered the lair of the beast...
"Uhm... I am pretty sure we didn't escape it at all... "
He said. Before he could say anything else a big monster appeared from shadows. It walked on tho legs... it had two strong arms and a big mouth full of sharp teeth... and it was looking right at them...
Flurry started to feel optimistic as the speed they were moving. She occasionally thought that she saw lights in front of them, the way out, but it was most likely just her imagination. They entered a large room, and a ruined one at that. She felt like she heard voices, but again, dismissed it as her imagination.
One thing however, that she could not dismiss were the gem shards on the floor. She was hoping that the remains were of several smaller corruptions, not one abomination from a quartz or a quartz knight, but for all of the shards to be in one place the odds were not in her favor.
As she saw the beast she felt cold, as if all of the positive energy in her body had been drained. She desummoned the cloud in her shock causing both of them to fall onto the floor. She looked at the monster in horror.

The big beast was watching them... almost like it was trying to size them up. Chip knew it was powerful... and he was so drained he wasn't even sure if he could summon his weapon. But he was the eternal flame after all... there was a fire burning deep inside him. And now was the time to use it.
"Hey, ugly! I give you this one chance to run before I will blast you into oblivion!"
He warned the monster. It was... well he felt cool when he said that... there was no other reason to it. There was absolutely no reason to believe it will have any effect. And it didn't. The monster just roared and charged them... only to get blasted by fire against a wall...
The little strength Chip regained was almost gone again... the monster was surprised, it didn't attack again right away..
Flurry continued to stare in horror at the beast. This was the most frightening corruption she had ever seen. She barely noticed Chip shouting at the beast. Her first reaction was to the beast's attack. Flinching in response she was lucky to have Chip beside her. She slowly looked up at the beast just to notice that Chip had repelled it. While she was not confident that Chip could defeat the beast she still hesitated for a moment.
"Ah! Chip let's go! " Flurry shouted, summoning her cloud again. She swooped down low and snatched up Chip. It seemed that she was quite good at picking people up for her size. She sped as fast as she could away from the monster.

Chip let himself be pulled to cloud once more. He had no idea where they were flying, all he could do was blast the monster once more, since it went after them. This time the blast wasn't strong enough to hurt the monster but at least it slowed down a little. This stupid ship was a death trap, he should never take her here... but he thought it will be perfectly safe... well he was wrong...
"I am not good at running!"
He stood on the cloud and pointed his hand towards them. A really powerful blast of fire tore a hole in the wall of the ship and also two walls behind it... after the last one there was sunlight...
With that last blast chip glitched few times barely holding his shape..
Flurry felt that her abilities were completely healed by now, she had to gamble and estimate the monsters strength. Assuming that Chip could defeat the monster at full strength she tackled Chip off of the cloud. Her gem glowed and she with great effort, summoned the bubble again. As the bubble appeared it blocked an attack from the monster. It had been on their tails this whole time. The inside of the bubble felt nice, like laying on a beach. Any small aches and pains, even the subtle discomfort of gravity, vanished. Glowing lights moved about inside of the sphere, instantly restoring Chip's energy. The whole process lasted only about a second, Flurry then was exhausted and the bubble faded. She collapsed, again unable to walk.

Chip felt like he blasted the way to freedom. He hoped Flurry will find a way to use that somehow to get them out. Instead she restored his energy somehow. He had no idea how she did it and right now it wasn't important. He summoned his lance, blasting the monster against the wall once again, he didn't want for the monster to recover, instead he grabbed Flurry, summoned his wings and flew upwards to the hole he blasted. He landed outside... in the grass, safe from whatever else was in that terrible wreck. "Wow! I have no idea how you've done that, but it was amazing! You totally saved us!"
His excitement was quickly replaced by worries.
"Are you ok? You must be exhausted after the whole ordeal..."
Flurry watched Chip, hoping that he could defeat the monster. Chip had knocked it against a wall with a fire attack, but he didn't seem bent on attacking it. Suddenly, Chip grabbed her and picked her up. He then proceeded to fly up and out of the Colony ship. Flurry was glad that it was over, but she still felt as if she had failed the mission. Chip was of course glad to be out, praising her for her contributions. While they had failed the mission, she had to agree that she had saved them.
"Ohh... yeah it's my healing powers... they really are hard to use..." Flurry said, flopping onto the ground in exhaustion. "That healing ability doesn't heal me at all... ohhh..."

"I know... healing others can be really really difficult, but you are awesome in it. Far better then I could ever be and you just saved us."
Chip didn't mind that they failed the mission. It was his mission after all, he invented it... and right now survival was quite a decent result. "So, tell me, I will fly you wherever you want... the ship is going nowhere... we could go back in the future if we want, there is no need to rush. But right now I think we had enough... and I don't want to risk it anytime soon..."
And he wasn't going to risk Flurry's life. If he ever come back he will go alone and carefully...
Flurry sat up with a weary grin on her face. Her eyes continued to swirl.
"Yeah... I guess so. It is my purpose after all. " Flurry said, wobbling a bit as she tried to stay sitting up. "We make a good team! "
She then shook her head as if to regain her senses. This mission had been a failure, but she was proud of it. She has been useful, and nobody had been hurt, that was all that mattered to her.
"Uh... well just to the nearest warp pad is fine. I can warp to the forge! " She said, smiling. "I doubt you wanna, but you could drop by there and meet my smith friend, Para! I'm sure they'd wanna see you! "
She stood, wobbling a bit, it seemed that she regained energy fast.
"Next time we come back, we should bring a bunch of my friends! If we had a bigger group we could go and beat all the monsters! "

Chip smiled. "Seems so. It must be nice to know your purpose... I don't have any idea what should've been mine... after all I can fly... I can fight and I can heal... that's a lot of things together... was I suppose to be some kind of commando? I really don't know... It's bugging me..."
He admitted. He wanted to know... but all the gems he met never met a Fire Opal before... could he be the only Fire Opal? He didn't know... and that was the problem! "Nearest warp pad it is... but I don't think I will go with you this time... but perhaps next time?"
He smiled. He wasn't sure if he should meet them... actually he was quite sure he shouldn't. He picked her up and flew her short distance to a warp pad.
Flurry rubbed her forehead, thinking about it. She seemed to be deep in thought about Chip's intended purpose, as if she actually knew what it was, but was struggling to remember. Finally she chuckled and began to speak.
"Yeah! You totally were supposed to be a commando! Did you see what you did to those monsters back there! " Flurry giggled. "I don't think you have to worry about it, I know it was something cool! "
Landing on the warp pad she stood, wearily.
"Oh... well next time I come back here I can call you! Then my team and I can come back here with you! " Flurry said excitedly. She hopped onto the warp pad. "Bye Bye! I`ll see you really soon! "

Chip just smiled, and kept smiling until Flurry warped away. Once she disappeared he stopped instantly. He didn't really wanted to be a commando. He envied Flurry her abilities, she was a healer... a good one, not like him... his healing was still... twitchy... yes, he could regenerate cracked or even chipped gems, and that worked... but it was also quite situational...
He just hoped that Flurry won't try to visit this place without him. Her team wasn't probably that strong and the place was a death trap. Her team could easily be decimated and worse - she could be hurt or shattered. Hopefully she wasn't crazy enough to do that...
With that thought he stepped on warp pad and thought about his home at Empire city... with that he was enveloped by white light... and disappeared...
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
