The Derelict was still hovering over the M-tower, but not for long. Everything was prepared for leaving the Earth forever. Chip had to take care of few things, but really quick. He was afraid, that if he thinks for long he just might change his might. When Chip left his room, he left the door opened. He took few trinkets with him, but nothing more. He left the tower, flying towards the ship, but he just had to look back once more. It was hard to imagine he just might never see this again...
He landed on the ship and quickly went to find Morion. Since the ship was leaving he would probably found him quite quickly on the bridge.
The Smoky Quartz was on the bridge One hand resting on a cane, in the other a data pad; he scrolled the reports from their humans His human servant, his butler was next to him
"...and the art?" "The boys managed to buy some real ones from the Black Market, some of them rare and unique, priceless pieces of Humanity's history and part of our identity, M'lord" "Good. The rest?" "Replicas." "Better than nothing, I guess. The important is, there will be something to hold in to. Anchors for the future, so your kind will not forget it's roots." "Some times I think it would be better, Master" "Those who do not know history's mistakes are doomed to repeat them. Never forget your past Pearl! Don't repeat Ourt mistakes. Your Race have a future. We lost ours when forgot our past. And became these... things we are today. The young and wonderful Gems like Fire Opal are our last hope my Pearl! "Speaking of the young Master..."
The butler bowed his head
"...ah. Yes. Thank you Pearl. Leave us "Masters..."
The human left, the Quartz turned to the kid He was... well Morion was a bit embarrassed, not really knew what to say But eventually find a safe subject

Chip came just in time to hear Morion talking about him. He smiled a little, quickly enough so Morion hopefully didn't notice. He slowly came closer. Morion knew that Chip heard him, and also knew that Chip knew, but also knew that Chip will pretend he didn't hear that.
"Well I'm not sure if he is still a kitten, he grew quite big... but I think he is sensing that we are leaving... he looks sad. But I think that he will be much happier once we depart. He might became father of first space kittens after all! Humans might get lonely and sad on the new planet... and having cats around will help them."
He said. It was just another piece of home...
"So today is the day, right? We are leaving all this... "
It was hard to guess if Chip was sad or giddy with anticipation... maybe both...
"Yes.. Humanity needs cats. After all, Humans domesticated the dogs. In turn, Cats domesticated the humans. They are the Diamonds for the Humans!"
Morion smiled a bit "Your cat will be a God to our humans! The head of a royal family!"
He nodded Watched the city from the ship "I will miss this world kiddo. But this is a fight they will loose. Not becasue the Diamonds might or something like that. They are too fractured, but Light will be a good leader. Of course he will have to wrestle the leadership of the Rebellion from that Varisicite fellow, but with the help of the Artisan, the Berserker, the Scout and the Bard, he can do it! Still I'm afraid it will be not enough."
The Quartz shook his head
"Not so long ago, shapeshifted and pretended to be a Yellow Agate. And simply walked in to the Forge, the base of Light and Padparadscha. Immagine if I would been a Loyal Gem! They would be dead now! No deffense system, noclosed doors, nothing... it was depressing. Not to mention, a truck load of explosives sent to the Crystal Temple could have ended the whole Rebel porblem!"
"All this insanity, chaos, suffering, everything is now behind us Chip... We have a bright future ahead us, full of adventures! Humanity and Earth's memory WILL survive and we will guard the planet's legacy. I was.... surprised, you choosed to come kiddo! But... I was happy too! I know, I have been a horrible "father/older borther". Made bad choices and made your life harder. But I will do everything to make it right Chip! Never wanted to hurt you or neglect you! Not with words, not with deeds. I know... you will need time to trust me again. But i will wait, patiently. I promise. Always here for you.

"We will have to be careful though, new planet means new dangers... they might be some alien predators... or dinosaurs cyborgs or something like that... and we have to find some new planet at first, right? But I think under the benevolent rule of Ser Reginald we might succeed."
He said, smiling.
"And my trip to the forge was quite similar... just entered, got what I wanted and left... without any problems, without being challenged... "
He said. Though now it wasn't important anymore.
"Look, Morion, I think we both made some mistakes... but that isn't important anymore. We will have to be strong to protect all humans on this ship... there will be no time to argue. And saving humans was something we both wanted... so let's focus on that."
He was... hopeful. "I left message for Ice at M-tower... I left my little brother there too... this isn't place for him..."
He wasn't sure about that, but taking him with them wasn't wise decision...
Post by Chip the Fire Opal on Jun 3, 2017 15:35:35 GMT
"Ok, it's a deal, no more arguing."
He smiled. It was refreshing. After all those troubles, everything was just ok once again. Having common goal helped. And, even after all those troubles, Chip still considered Morion family. "Yeah, I was thinking about that a lot... and I strongly feel I should leave him here... not only so he can choose his own way, but perhaps so I have a reason to return one day... I never crossed galaxies on my own before, but I might one day..."
"I will have you, ser Reginald and a lot of humans around... with more then enough work."
He explained. But perhaps he was afraid a little, after all he never faced his brother, he let him bubbled in his room...
The Smoky Quartz nodded It was hard to leave Deep inside, he knew, Earth will be destroyed, if he tought otherwise, he would have choose to stay after all... ...but Chip was right, it was a good ide to leave something behid, to have a reason to come back one day But for him, nothing left on Earth, maybe some so called friends. Light, who always refused to be a Hero and tried to fight against his destiny, Padparadscha, who used him - well it was mutual, but still^^ - Bloodstone who, like Padparadscha used him as well to further her goals, Carbide, who was a wyld card... the other Gems... truth to be told, it was hard to miss them Yet he missed them a little already Melody especially
"Bloodstone inherited everything, the web of influence, the resurces, the Tower, connections... everything. I guess, she will find your brother eventually. Maybe they will be friends
But there was a question he had to ask A personal one
Post by Chip the Fire Opal on Jun 8, 2017 13:58:21 GMT
"Well Bloodstone is clever enough... I think he might be able to do something interesting... and he is also friend with Ice so at least he won't be alone there... that's nice too."
He said though he was quite sad that he is leaving his friends behind. Especially ice... he took him almost as big brother... and strangely enough as little brother too, since Chip was far more experienced and knew more about this world.
Then Morion's words hit him like a flaming semi-truck hitting him in the face. "Yeah... Flurry... I... well I didn't speak with her... I couldn't... because... well... uhm..."
He took a deep breath. "If she asked me to stay I would have..."
He admitted. He felt something for her... something he couldn't explain...
"Bloodstone... yes. Clever. After you left, I asked them to be Light Mocha Pearl's teachers, and basically the Four Guardians of Earth. The Bard. The Berserker. The Scout and the Artisan. Melody, Bloodstone, Carbide and Padparadscha. Light have the potential to become a hero, like you did... maybe even the leader of the Rebellion! Or at least do some good before everything burns. But lets hope, they will resolve this peacefully!"
Morion nodded And watched the young Fire Opal Gently putting his hand on the kid's shoulders
"I know the feeling kiddo... If Demetry would alive and he would asked me to, or you would have stayed, and would asked me to stay, I would stay on Earth for and with you. Like you for Flurry"
He shook his head
"But this... would have been the problem I guess. We both would stay for someone, not becasue we belive in the Cause or the future of the Rebellion. Am I right?"
Post by Chip the Fire Opal on Jun 11, 2017 7:36:43 GMT
Chip sighed. Just talking about Flurry, thinking about her was lowering his resolve... there was a reason he was trying not to think about her. This was more important then his feelings...
"Yeah... I guess you're right..."
He didn't say more. He was thinking about Flurry, he didn't even say goodbye to her and he knew he will feel sorry for that forever. But he wouldn't leave if he saw her... he knew that. There were no perhapses or maybes... he just knew... How will she feel once she learns, that he left without a single word? Will she be angry? Will she hate him for him? Or will she just be sad... disappointed... he would be... was he betraying her by this?
His frowned a little, thinking about it... why Morion had to bring Flurry up?
The Smoky Quartz offered It was clear, Flurry was a very important Gem for the young Fire Opal... it would have been cruel to rob the kid from the chance to say good bye, or ask her to come [who knows Amaru, Sulfur not really plays with Flurry anymore, maybe she will be retired too and come with us ^^' )
"I know it is hard to say good bye kiddo"
Morion looked in the yes of his young apprentice "But... belive me, it is even worse to NOT to do it, when you have a chance. I have a few regrets Chip, one of them is my bigest; I never said good bye or anything to my beloved Demetry, and when he was..."
He looked away "...gone forever, I have lost the chance to tell him my feelings or to say good bye. Don't make the same mistake I did kid... we have time for a call or visit"
Post by Chip the Fire Opal on Jun 11, 2017 9:27:28 GMT
Chip looked at Morion, then he pulled out a phone... phone, which contained Flurry's phone number.
"You don't get it... if I call her she might ask me to stay... and if she do that I will... because... "
For a moment he was quiet, but then he remembered, that he promised there won't be any secret between them, only honesty.
"Because I can't stand the thought of hurting her... "¨
He said honestly. He was prepared to leave everything behind, friends, Earth... even Flurry... but only as a coward, without facing her... he knew, that it might tore him inside given enough time, but he was willing to take that risk... but not after speaking with her...
"You were always trying to give me good advice, even though I rarely listened...but right now...I'm not sure what to do..."
He said as he was flipping the phone between fingers...
"No Chip, I do "get it". I know, she migth ask you to stay with her. It is a risk I am willing to take. Not to mention, if you choose to stay, it is possible, you will ask me to stay with you. And you know my answer to that..."
The Smoky Quartz nodded
"It is a "risk"... so to speak. But trust me kiddo, I know how painfull to live with questions we never asked, when we had the chance. They are staying with us, forever, like heavy invisible chains on our soul, griping our very heart with cold hand... tormentig us for an eternity! And they eventually give birth to another question to help them "What happened if...?" "
Morion explained quietly
"It is to late for me to ask some questions... but not for you. And I know how hard it is to live with those questions echoing my mind. Give them enough time and they could drag you down to the dark depths of insanity without the hope of return. I don't want you to suffer the same fate!
"It is better to risk of staying, than the tought of seeing you slowly dying inside... so Call her kiddo! And who knows, it is possible, she will understand or even come with us. But ultimatly, the choice is yours my boy! But this is my advice"
Post by Chip the Fire Opal on Jun 11, 2017 17:50:34 GMT
Yeah... Morion probably understood quite well. Even though they had their problems Chip understood that Morion always wanted the best for him. Even if that meant, that their patch will split...
"You are right... I should call her... speak with her... I suppose I owe her that much... "
He looked at the phone and sighed loudly. He was a little to afraid. How should he even start the dialogue? Hey Flurry, I'm leaving Earth and I thought I would tell you goodbye... something like that? That was idiotic... he had to think of something. And if he stayed on Earth would he ask Morion to stay as well? Who would take care of the humans? ¨ "Yeah, you are definitely right... I will call her... but we might regret me doing that... "
He pressed the small "call" button on his phone...
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.
Dec 31, 2019 4:25:34 GMT
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
