Chip understood more about Morion. He already knew him, well the part that Morion was willing to show at least. But if he really blamed himself, even partially, for the state Earth was in right now, it could explain why he was acting like that all the time. Being so serious all the time, hating rebels so much... if his mission was to stop that and it happened anyway, he really could feel like he failed his Diamond. He might even be a little worried about what would happen when he see his diamond once more... or perhaps not...
"Do you think I should to try and visit my Diamond? I am... reasonably sure I could fly there with my own power. I feel like I should, but I am afraid... after all she might be... disappointed to see what happened... and if she decided to shatter me for that... I mean I wouldn't make it easy, but against a whole fleet... then again seems like I was made to survive..."
Blue Diamond was probably really wise... her personal wrath wasn't stupid either. And Chip could really use his council right now...
The Smoky Quartz pondered a bit Then looked up to His Diamond Her Majesty, Blue Diamond Finally, he shook his head and answered:
It was a hard decision But lately, he had to made some pretty hard ones
"I have no doubts you could fly to the Moonbase, or even to the Homeworld, after all you are a powerful Gem my young Aprrentice, but... but tho' you would want to meet her, I doubt you are, sorry to say this "loyal enough". Your heart and mind are both full of questions and doubts Chip... uncertenaties. And you are an unkown Gem to her guards and Pearls. I doubt they would let you to meet Her Chip, and even if they would? Answer me dear Apprentice, what would you say to her? And if She would asks about your loyality or alligances... what would you answer?
Morion asked quietly
"I think this is not the right time to meet with Her Chip. Lets wait a little, wait and sort out inside you these things... shrug off Carbide's and Bloodstone's "bad influence", the independent philosophy... But this is just my two cents, like the Humans tend to say

Chip was a little surprised. He actually convince himself, that he should go there. The only thing he felt he needed was Morion's blessing and he said no... but Chip trusted him, so he listened to his reasoning without letting on most of the shock.
"That is exactly my point... my mind is full of questions and doubts... and I don't have a heart so... that's not a problem. But my point is, that meeting My Diamond should put those questions aside, right? I would be honest with her... tell her the truth about me... and I would offer her my services... her reaction should tell me everything I need to know... if she would accept me, I would knew she is the glorious leader worth following."
In the other case he would probably be shattered, but not without a fight...
"We have time... well not we, and don't really have time, but you... and a little time"
The Smoky Quartz nodded
"From your point of view, every day is a "gift" from Pink Diamond, Your Diamond... days to find answers to your questions, days to resolve your doubts. Meeting with Her would put those questions aside, yes, but... as you said, the meeting would put aside the questions, and wouldn't answer them. Wat would you tell Her? "I am Chip, from Earth, and an abandoned Gem, who was chipped and had to hide from the Gems? I am a bit rebellious and not too loyal to the Empire and never had a Diamon before... and have strange ties with Rebels and Independens?" I tink it would be better kiddo, to use these days, before She arrives to find answers... so when you finally kneel before her, you could tell him with clear hear "I am Fire Opal, from Earth, the records lost during the Rebels sabotage so I don't know my Facet or Cut. But have an Earth name "Chip", because I was chipped... but survived and heald, and learnt to heal others and defend others, not just to fight for myself. I want to help to end the War with the Rebels and Independents and punish them for their actions against the Planet of My Diamond, and the Gems, my people." See the differnce?

"Yeah, that's exactly the problem... we don't have much time left... "
He said. His Diamond had fleet right above them, she could strike at any moment. Morion was once again proving, that he had great talent to be a drama queen.
"First - I am not rebellious, I have no ties to rebels and independent gem... I was loyal to my mentor, Her Majesty Blue Diamond's Wrath himself... and gems that he introduced me too. And yes, I survived more, them most gems with practically no knowledge, so yes, I was abandoned gem, who was chipped and had to survive against powerful gems, monsters and more. And I did exactly that! And now I am strong gem, you know I am... "
The last sentence was almost like he was asking Morion to agree with him.
"Every day is a gift, as I said... use them wisely. This is my advice"
Then the Smoky Quartz looked to Chip from the holo
"So, you have no ties to Rebels and Independent Gems...? Then name the Gems you know and their alligances! ALL of them!"
It was a polite asking, not an order Te assassin sat down and listened to the kid
"You are very strong Chip and I am proud of you. As you said, you survived monsters, humans, powerfull advesaries... and became a protector of others. And without unlocking your full potential! I am sure, your powers are only developing and you have tremendous might inside you, both physical and both "magical"
The Smoky Quartz agreed, the young Fire Opal was full of possibilites

"I met dozens of gems... but only few of them more then once. And none of them should be a rebel... and the only independent one I have "ties" to is Bloodstone... and you introduced me to him... and I met him twice! And both times it was because of you... so don't blame me for it... and I met Carbide ONCE, by accident... and it was all because of the weird war machine that you keep around."
He stood his ground.
"It's not like I am following them to teach me how to be rebel... no, I am here, with you! Not them... "
Rebel ties... bah... Morion was simplifying too much. And he was doing what he could to be "loyal" but it was difficult to be loyal to someone, he never saw. Yes, there was "the voice" in his head, that helped him understand a little... but still...
"You have met a dozens of Gems. Thats not that much..."
The Smoky Quartz nodded
"So? Who are they? And whats side they are on? What do you think, if you don't have "proof"?"
The Assassin was curious, ha had the feleing Chip avoided the answer for a reason...
"I don't balme you for anything... don't worry. As for Bloodstone and Crabide...? Our relationship is shaky at best! I consider her as a vallued ally... she sees me as a tool or possible enemy, I am not a fool kid, I am well aware, Carbide just tried to use me time to time and my resurces to further her "independent" goals. Truth to be told, if she wouldn't Her Majesty's, White Diamond's Grand Inquisitor, his excellency, the exalted Opalite's friend and companion... I would have shattered her long ago, for her actions! But I am I guess a bit sentimental, and part of me wish Carbide to see the light and re-join to our side. For the moment she is "safe", but just becouse of her connection to Her Majesty's, White Diamond's Grand Inquisitor, his excellency, the exalted Opalite. But at the moment she is not under his protection, Carbide is finished."
Morion promised with a grim tone
"The same for goes to Bloodstone. I have tolerated his actions long enough, and promised him I won't let Homeworld destroy or bubble him; when the time comes, I will be the one who shatters him. And that day is close, closer every moment... if he is remains independent that is. The Gems like them are the real cause of the trubles kiddo!"
"I know you are good kid Chip and not a Rebel, not even independent... but their influence was bad enough to taint your views, at least I think it is their falut... after all, you don't know any more of these... rouge elements am I right my Apprentice? Yes? Good. I am sure, we could find answers to your questions Chip, and I hope, I can help you to find those answers! So, these Gems you mentioned...?

Chip gulped and started to think of all the gems he met so far. There were many of them... he was pretty sure he was going to forget many of them. After all he wasn't perfect, only Diamonds were...
"Well... there were your friends Melody, Spider and Bloodstone..."
He started with the extensive list that was forming his his little orange head... "Obsidian the shovel knight, Gaspeite the warmachine... and Carbide..."
He continued with the list, probably forgetting half of it already...
"Then there was Ice, Sulfur and Lapis Lazuli... "
He had no idea, why he put his friend, mortal enemy and gem he had no attachments whatsoever together...
"Then there was the Sapphire I saw from the air... and that rude quartz that landed in our city and his war machine Pyrope... then a White Spinel and you... "
He ended the list... suddenly it wasn't so long. He felt like he met more gems then that... but those probably weren't important. Or he just saw them... "And isn't Bloodstone you friend? Because he is mine... only thanks to him I am healed... don't you think we owe him a little? I mean you stop shattering gems for me... and now you would shatter you friend? That's a little excessive don't you think? I won't allow it, I will speak with him... perhaps I will have more luck then you..."
The Smoky Quartz listene It was a bit... unimpressive list But still, the kid tried, at tha was admireable
"Ice... is what kind of Gem, Ice is a code nam,e I guess. A Lapis Lazuli? I tink I missed that Gem too... maybe wasn't listening, when you told me about that one^^"
It seemed to him, Chip forgot to fill a report or two about these Gems^^
"Please tell me about these Gems Chip!"
"My relationship with Bloodstone is complicated kiddo, but I made him this promise I WILL shatter him, long before I made the promise to you. It was more of an Oath. Our agreement was, I will not let Homeworld capture and bubble him, and experiment on him, I will shatter him. And he will shatter me, before the Rebeles could catch me if the Rebels conquer this planet and all the loyals dead. And now? Homeworld is here, with a Diamond! Your Diamond, and tho' she is benevolent, she is not stupid! This whole mess could have been avoided if the so called independedt Gems would have helped the Loyals to crush the Rebellion... insted the likes like Carbide and Bloodstone turned their back to us! But Bloodstone promised, when the times comes, he will joins us... so I let him live. But when the time came? You were there! First Pink Diamond's Herald arrived, then I showed you the Moon and the forces of your Diamond gahtering around the base... and what he did? Insted of joining us, to help, dissapeared, turned his back on us, again. Selfish Gem, only thinking about himself! But you could talk with him, if you wish my Apprentice, try to convince him to join you, join the Pink Court... return to us! You know, he is the experiment of Yellow Diamond and Yellow is an idiot Goddess... she will satter him, since in her eyes Bloodstone is a real faliure! I only wants to protect him from his Diamond's wrath... but if you could convince him to seek shelter in the shadow of yur Diamond, I am ok with that..."

"We talked about ice few minutes ago... he is the terraformer I was talking about... and he is an Ice... so no code name. And I haven't talked about Lapis and Spinel because I barely met them. One in Beach city, the other in Empire city... I just helped them a little and sent them on their merry way."
He said. Those minor details weren't important to tell anyone about.
"You never wanted me to tell you about everything I was doing if you remember. You might noticed that my collection of bubbled gems increased as well... "
He said. And he also finished healing his shards... another thing he didn't tell him just yet...
"I will try to talk to Bloodstone. He owe him that much... but if he decided to stay neutral... I guess you two have your crazy promises... but I don't like it at all..."
"I know Chip, we talked about Ice... I was asking about his Gem type"
Morion explained calmly
"Well, okay, as long as you are sure, they are not dangerous Rebels or Independents, I am fine with this "helping unknown Gems" thing"
"Good luck with Bloodstone, but don't be surprised, he is like an eel, warped in oiled silk... slipery and sneaky. And you don't have to like this kid, I don't really need your approval. I don't like to upset you, but sometimes you have do what you have to do. Anyhow, If you meet any strange new Gems, tell me next time... but I have complate trust in your judgement."
The kid earned his mentor's trust
"Thank you for coming..."
After all, he asked the kid here to show him a Diamond and preapre him as much as he could.

"His gem type is Ice... as far as I know... "
He tried to clarify. It was strange, but he was really Ice. Unless he lied, but he had nothing to gain by lying... plus he had ice powers.
"I know you don't need my approval, but I hope it won't come to shattering... I will try to speak with him and... I guess we will see what happens. And I will try to tell you if I meet someone interesting in the future. But what I find interesting you might not. After all there is few thousands years between us..."
"Well I am happy you're trying to prepare me for meeting a Diamond, I am pretty sure I can't really be prepared, but something's better then nothing right? Thanks."
"I don' want to dissapoint you kiddo, but your "friend" lied to you I am afraid. There are no Ice Gem-type. Ice is water frozen into a solid state. Depending on the presence of impurities such as particles of soil or bubbles of air, it can appear transparent or a more or less opaque bluish-white color. Ice is NOT a Gem. A gemstone is a piece of mineral crystal which, in cut and polished form, is used to make jewelry or other adornments. In our case, it is our sub-sepcies. Like Quartz for example."
Morion explained Tried to be gentle, after all, the kid's friend lied to him Or at least wasn't comnpletly honest "Be careful Chip..."
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
