"It is possible, we will regret... but you know kiddo, we will regret that together!
"And that is the important!"
He nodded and stepped back, giving his young ward the privacy to call his friend. Who happens to be a girl. ^^ Toughts raced in the head of the Quartz What will hapen? What will this little Gem, Flurry will say to Chip? Will she come with them, leave Earth behind? Or asks Chip to stay (and will Chip asks him to stay with them? So many questions But in truth, the Smoky Quartz secretly hoped, Flurry will come with them, and she will understand, Chip could explain to her while staying and fighting is a noble cause, but helping to build a new home for Humanity is even greater good
Flurry was trying once again to lift Para's hammer at the forge. This was a thing she did regularly, or more accurately attempted regularly. Flurry rubbed her hands together dutiffuly as she eyed the tool. She grunted and groaned as she tried to lift it. However, as she had just about got it a foot off of the ground her phone rang, startling her. She dropped the hammer down onto her toes.
"Kyaaaa! " She squealed, staggering backward. She fell onto her back and scrambled for the phone, holding her toes in her free hand. She noticed the number, it was one of the three numbers that she could recognize. It was Chip!
"Huh? Is this chip? Hey buddy! It's been like... a really long time! " She giggled, not really caring much about her foot anymore. "What's up!? Wanna go get sushi or something? I heard it's super good! "

The phone beeped few times, before Flurry picked it up. He heard her voice and he had to smile. She was speaking like nothing was going on... and for her nothing was probably going on...
"Hello Flurry... how... how are you?"
He asked. Suddenly speaking was getting difficult...
"Yeah... uhm... the thing is... I'm kinda in... a spaceship... preparing to leave the Earth forever... and well... uhm... I couldn't leave without speaking with you..."
He took it quickly... like ripping off the band aid... there was no dancing around the issue... he looked at Morion with eyes full of terror as he waited for Flurry to say something... will she yell? Will she says her farewells? Will she angrily end the call?
Flurry's smile turned into a sort of neutral expression as she heard him having difficultly speaking. She was a bit curious as to what was happening, but immediately assumed that he had been eating some spicy food and had difficulty talking. She was about to suggest some advice: to drink milk, which would help the hot food not burn so badly, but at that moment he continued speaking.
Her jaw dropped as he continued to speak. Tears rolled down her cheeks. For a few seconds she was silent. Suddenly she caught her breath and started to speak.
"B-but why!? " She shouted desperately. "Y-you can't just leave! Where are you going!? You can't be leaving forever right!? I know you don't want to do this! Someone's making you right!? Did those homeworld guys capture you, and now they're taking you back to their horrible planet! I`ll save you! If I cant.... you've at least got to wait a few minutes for me to come... If you really are going to leave... then I want to at least say goodbye in person... "
Post by Chip the Fire Opal on Jun 17, 2017 11:39:45 GMT
Yeah... why... that was the question...
"Uhm... it's so difficult to explain... nobody is making me... it's just that... uhm..."
How should he explained that to her? She believed that Earth could be saved... Morion was adamant about Earth getting destroyed... Chip just couldn't tell her: Because I want to save at least few humans...
"Yeah, you're right... we should probably talk in person... tell me where you are and I'll arrive..."
He said. It was probably bad idea, but he had to do that... Morion was right about this. If Chip didn't talk with Flurry, he would hate himself forever. But he was afraid, that Flurry will ask him to stay...
Flurry tensed up more and more as Chip spoke. Her eyes widened in fear. This was worse than any kidnapping. Chip had seemingly converted completely to homeworld. She held her breath as he spoke. She teared up and waited as he paused. Finally he asked to meet her in person. She took a deep breath to keep from crying, somewhat relieved that she would have a chance to talk with him in person, as if it would help.
"Uh... you probably won't be able to find it easy... it's this restaurant in Jersey... I`ll go to the warp pad in Jersey and wait for you okay? " Flurry said. She quickly hung up and started to bolt to the warp pad as if being late meant that she would miss her chance.

"I'll be right there..."
He said and ended the call. For a short moment he was quiet, like he was thinking.
"I have to go... but will come back... "
He said to Morion.
"But I have no idea if I come back with good news... "
He said honestly, before he left the ship. He had to go to Jersey... he had to see Flurry... he left the ship and flew down to M tower... quickly, without stopping. He didn't want to meet anyone else... his resolve probably couldn't take another blow... he entered the building and stepped on the pad, disappearing in the beam of light...
... only to materialise in Jersey. Hopefully, Flurry will be here... waiting. Waiting would probably drive him mad right now...
Sure enough Flurry was waiting. She stared for a while, unable to think of words to say to him. She simply stared in disbelief, as if him coming there confirmed that he wasn't lying. She had believed him, but this meeting made it all feel more real, too real.
"Well!? " She shouted, squeezing her eyes tightly shut, unable to look at him. She balled his hands into fists and held them by her sides. "You're like us! You're like a crystal gem! You care about this planet! You care about us! You care about me! Why would you ever leave! Don't say that it just had to happen or that I won't understand... because I have to understand. You have to tell me why you wanna leave... I`ll never be able to forgive you if you can't do that... "

Flurry stood there... and she was quite angry. He understood why... he would probably react the same way she was...
"I am not quite like you Flurry... you know who you are, you know what you want to do. I was trying to figure that one out... but I'm not sure if I had..."
Even though he was whole. there was a piece of him missing, perhaps because of that, it was easier to follow then to lead. On Homeworld he would be shattered a long time ago...
"You're right, that I care about you. I care about you so much, that I didn't want to see you before I leave... because I knew, that if you would ask me to stay I would."
He said honestly.
"Morion doesn't believe, that your rebellion has a chance... he think that thanks to it the Earth will be destroyed and all humans with it. So we are taking "our" humans on space ship somewhere... else. To save humanity from destruction. I don't know, if he is correct... but I think trying to save humans is a good thing. Humanity needs to survive, I believe that..."
He took a deep breath. "I know you probably don't agree with Morion, you probably think that we are making a big mistake... but I think it's a valiant effort. But ask me to stay and I will, I'll never leave you again and I will stay by your side until the end, whatever it will be... or if you never want to see me again I will leave Earth forever... hoping that I'm doing a good thing."
"Chip... I'm not a crystal gem because I think the Crystal gems have a really great chance of winning... I'm a crystal gem because it's what I believe in. If I lose... so what? What matters is when you try. I'm gonna keep trying as long as I can... " She said quietly. "Well... even if you don't think the same way, I want you to stay here. If you can't help earth, at least stay here. Even if you aren't a Crystal gem, my job is a lot easier when I've got friends around me. "
Flurry smiled sadly.
"It might sound nice to run away... but life isn't about staying alive, it's about living! " She said, pumping a fist. "If you run away you`ll be fine, and well if you stay and something bad does happen to this planet then you might not be okay, but at least you aren't dying inside... "

"I'm survivalist... one of the few instincts that remained after I was chipped was to survive... trying to survive is the only nature I ever had... that's why I couldn't join you. Your odds are just... to improbable."
He explained. This instinct helped him blast through dozen peridots just moments after he first took shape, it allowed him to survive without any memories and with barely any skills. It was his nature...
"But I feel I would rather face the entire Gem empire at your side, then to live forever without you."
He finished his explanation. He knew that he should feel really bad for leaving Morion and all the humans, but he didn't... he felt happy for some strange reason.
Flurry stared for a moment as Chip spoke, unable to properly organize her thoughts. As he spoke she looked at the floor. She waited for him to finish speaking. Although she looked at the floor she clearly was hearing his words. After he had finished she looked up and back into his eyes. A smile was on her face, and tears were still in her eyes. She ran and jumped, grabbing onto him and hugging him. She giggled as she did so, but she calmed down after a while and became serious.
"Thanks Chip... I know we're different, and I really know why you want to survive. It's a scary thought, to... you know. " She mumbled. "Still, that you would make that choice for me... it means a lot. "
"I sure hope your friend isn't angry... I don't agree with gems from homeworld, but their friendship's still matter to me... I hope he understands why you wanna stay, or maybe he could stay too! Earth is a place for everybody... but I guess not people who don't believe. " She took a step back and looked him in the eyes. "If you do change your mind and want to leave... I won't be mad okay? It's your decision, don't make it just for me... If you're only staying to make me happy then... well I won't be! What would make me happy is knowing that you made the decision yourself! Whatever you choose... "

"Don't worry Flurry, I won't leave. I just talk to Morion and then return to you... I promise."
He smiled, even though it was with heavy hearth. He felt bad for abandoning Morion and their humans. But there was no going back right now. He smiled once more and disappeared in the energy stream of the warp pad.
He appeared on the M-tower once more. As the last time, he flew quickly outside and in the Derelict. The closer he was to Morion the better he understood that he really didn't want to leave Earth... but he still thought, that someone has to save the humans if Earth gets destroyed after all...

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
