It was a long day - started with terrible nightmare, continued with a whole lot of fighting, injuries and stress only to end quite well. Chip had to rest. He burned through a lot of his energy, he got shot and burned, but when he looked at the ceiling, where among other bubbles his 3 shards were floating around, he knew, it was all worth it. He lied down, prepared to rest when suddenly...
So... you got them... all of them. Good job... but what now? You can't merge with them, since you already healed us...
"Shut up, I'm tired and want to sleep... we can talk about it tomorrow..." Chip was tired and didn't really want to argue with himself right now. He was too tired for that...
We both know, that you won't be sleeping until I shut up and I am not going to do that right now... what do you intent to do with them...
Chip sighed, it was probably quicker to respond, then to argue... "I want to heal them, merge them together into one... they have a lot of knowledge I miss... it might be enough for them to reform... "
I know you want to do that, but I am not sure if it is wise... they might be corrupted or insane. You might create something... terrible. And you will have to split the blue shard from our shard first... "I know... I'm working on that... now shut up..."

Hey! Wake up twerp... you slept for long enough... I can feel your energy is mostly back... so move your body and let's start working...
Chip opened his eyes, he couldn't believe that the stupid voice just woke him up. How could he do that?! How did this even work?! He was sleeping! And the voice was part of him... so how could it be awake?
"Why are you doing this you crazy maniac... I wanted to sleep... did you have to wake me up? Damn you to Hades..."
Human mythology doesn't scare me... and you really should start listening to me... after all OUR Diamond is on the moon... she is kind and just. Why are you against her so strongly? "Where did this came from? I told Morion I will give her a chance... what do you want from me?"
I want US to became one... I don't have ALL the information you need... but I have some. Together we could serve us diamond much better.
"You wake me up for this?! Get lost..."
He pushed the voice deep into his subconsciousness. He had work to do... he had to find a way to separate his shard from the blue one. And then he wanted to heal his shards... but didn't want the blue gem to become one with them...

It was maddening. He tried everything to separate those two shards, but without any success. He tried to pull them out, to tear them apart... he tried fire and tools... but he had to be careful not to damage the gems. He could simply broke the blue piece off, but he really didn't want to. One time, the gem even tried to reform, but with Chip around it was only an empty gesture. It was time to face the fact - those two gems were fused. Not only physically but also mentally. It was no longer possible to separate them, not without damaging or shattering one of them. And he was afraid that it could also damage the other part... This finding threw wrench in his plans... then again Chip was young, restless and impulsive so he quickly decided - fu*k it, let's try it anyway. After all, what could possibly go wrong.
All of his shards were floating around in a bubble. Together it was a big piece of his gem and it contained a lot of knowledge he was supposed to have. Chip had to wonder, it there was enough for it to be able to think... reform... and learn. There was only one way to find out. He dispersed the bubble, grabbed all of the pieces, holding them so they could not reform. Then he set them ablaze. But this fire wasn't yellow of red... it was golden. It was hot, yet it didn't burn... it healed.
This process was extremely taxing and quite soon Chip felt drained, but he continued anyway. He was the eternal flame after all. It took a long time before the shards fused together as one. But that wasn't enough. He wanted to heal it completely, so he continued further. It was painfully slow process, but the gem was slowly growing back. Chip would continue even further, but his body suddenly flicked. He had to use all his energy just to hold his shape, he was burning through too much energy too quickly. Just now he found out how drained he was... there was really no point in continuing right now.
He picked the gem and looked at it. It was... better. But not good enough. For now he bubbled it. He had to gather some strength before he could even try and continue... even though he just woke up he lied down.

Hey, kid... wake up! You can't sleep the entire day. That's boring... and I really think we should talk more. Let's face it, I am being extremely reasonable here. I could bother you ALL the time, drive you crazy! And I am not doing that, so wake up and listen awhile...
Chip opened his once more, everything hurt from his healing. He slept for hours but he was still tired. And the voice was not helping... but it had point... not that he was going to admit that. Not now, nor ever!
"What the hell is wrong with you? Do you have some weird gem damage that forces you to wake me up?! I was sleeping! And have you just called me "kid"?! Really?!"
You are a GEM! You don't HAVE to sleep. You just need to relax for a while and you can do it while being awake. So just relax and listen to me... "Those two are mutually exclusive! I can't do both. If you want me to relax then shut up!"
You know, that you are arguing with yourself? Do you really want to be selfguing? And YES I know it is not a word! "Uhm... look, I don't want to hear it. I heard it I know you want to serve Pink Diamond, but I think there is still time to make this decision if needed. Right now we are doing fine... so shut up!"
Yes, you don't want to hear it, because you're afraid, that I am starting to make sense. You can't dismiss me that easily, because deep down you know I am right...
"So stay deep inside and don't come back..."
He forced the voice again once more, but it was getting harder and harder. It had to be because he was so tired. Perhaps he really needs to rest for some time. So he switched on his PC. It was time to blast some imaginary enemies.

However petty it might have been it was hilarious watching those humans questioning his mother's sexual preferences. Chip failed to see how it was relevant to the fact, that he just shot all of them... well joke was on them, since gems didn't have mothers. With that he had enough relaxation and switched the computer off.
He played only for few short hours, but he felt relaxed and much stronger. It was probably time to finish his little project. He once again took the bubble with his joined shards. He felt like having enough energy to finish the job right now. He started to concentrate, engulfing his hand in golden fire. Using it so shortly after the last time was almost painful, but Chip wasn't going to stop... Hey! HEY! WAKE UP!!!
The voice finally broke Chip's concentration. The first thing he saw was, that he held a complete and perfect gem in his hand. Only seconds after that he realised how he was drained. It was already dark outside, he had too keep healing for hours! He didn't even understand how exactly was he still holding his form. But when he saw the gem he was holding it was all worth it. The gem was perfect, but it wasn't a Fire Opal... the blue shards fused with it... permanently. He created... Precious Opal... the realisation hit him like flaming semi-truck falling on his face. With last pieces of strength he bubbled the gem... and then he poofed, his gemstone hitting the ground

Two days later...
Chip was so tired it took him the entire day to reform. The strain was just too much, it was silly and unwise but it was also a success. He was able to create ... something. He wasn't sure what it was yet... sure, it was a precious opal... he was sure about that... but once he will release it... will it reform? Will it be a person or monster? Will it be reasonable or totally insane? It was made out of three shards of his gem and a piece of Sapphire... could something good even come out from that?
He glanced at all of the gems in the bubbles that were floating near the ceiling... the precious opal was really standing out... he knew that after everything he's done for him he had to release it... sooner or later... but not right now... he wasn't ready for it...

Several days later... Chip was really trying to go around his usual business, but his thoughts were still drawn to the new gem he created. He was still afraid what might happen if he set it free... he was worried about it, but with every day it was harder and harder to resist. After all the bright orange bubble that floated in his room was his little brother... there was no way around it.
Chip got up from his bed and carefully grabbed the bubble. With single move he pierced the bubble, setting the gem free. With strange mix of anticipation and dread he waited... and waited, but nothing was happening... for few seconds that felt like eternity at least... then the gem started to reform... with that Chip held his breath...

After Morion left...
The M-tower was quiet. With only fraction of humans left it was so easy to get inside unnoticed. Chip returned to his room, as so many times before, but this time might as well been the last. It was just as he left it... with several bubbled gems floating near the ceiling. All of those had to go now...somewhere else. Chip touched each of them, sending them away, to the place only he knew about right now. Finally only one gem was left there - his little brother. He picked it up, storing it safely in a box he had with him. It served very much like a bubble, only smaller. He sat on a chair, taking a piece of paper.
For Ice Hey there... by the time you'll read the message, you'll know, that Morion left the Earth with many humans. I wanted to leave with him, but I didn't. I had to stay. But I don't think I could possibly stay here... it didn't feel right. But your room is still yours, you can stay as long as you want. If you want to see me I might be somewhere near Beach city. Your friend, Chip
He put the paper so everyone would notice it upon entering his room. He once more looked around. All his collectable items, his computer... none of it was important right now. With that he just picked up the box with ser Reginald and left the M-tower. He didn't intent to return here...
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
