"I don't do anything for fun... I'm a protector of Empire city... most of the time I'm busy protecting the Empire city... from corrupted gems, rebels, crazy gems... take your pick. When I want to relax, like now, I just sit on a beach and watch the ocean... or I fly to the sky temple and watch from it... "
This planet was so beautiful, there was so much to see. Yes, he used to play on human entertaining systems, but no longer. He left them all in the M-tower.
"Or something more creative perhaps..."
He moved his hand and nearby sand castle got enveloped in flame. When the flame went away, the outer shell of the castle turned to glass. It was a wee bit melted, since it was difficult to guess the proper temperature or time... but he was getting better.
Wonder filled her head as she listened towards him, he wasn't the type of gem to experience new things maybe however either way, watching the sunset along with the flouring aquatic animals was enough for her, Blue Quartz placed her palm upon the sand glowing her eye in a lime green variation.
Trails of seaweed started to come towards her, 7 in total swarmed together in the shape of a single chair in which then she took a seat laying her arms on the holders," I see..." she'd then say while cuffing her palm under her chin. A smile arisen from her face as she watched the humans play, the animals that coexists with one another, the glistening sun rays that reflected it's light on the dense ocean.

Chip suddenly burst into laughter for no apparent reason. He laughed to hard he fell from his chair right into the wet sand. It was that kind of child laughter that was equal part pure and annoying as all hell.
"That was awesome!"
He yelled still partially interrupted by laughter.
"You can control seaweed? That would be so great at scaring people. Just came out of the water, enveloped by seaweed, looking like some kind of sea monster."
He finally got up from the ground with wet sand stuck to his face.
"I guess that's not everything you can do, right? Otherwise Diamonds would have to really be drunk when they made you... "Hey guys, what should we create today? OH I know! A gem that would control seaweed! Yeah, neat, wicked..." or something like that..."
It was probably quite insensitive, but Chip was like that a lot... there was no bad intention, he was just childish.
Blue narrowed her eye as he laughed at her controlling of the seaweed, it was odd that he simply busted out in a laugh yet idly continuing to do so caused her to form navy blushes on her cheeks, she then stared at him sternly not pleased at all about this. Blue got up from her seaweed contructed chair swaying her arm forward she sent the sea weed back into the ocean," ... I have the ability to manipulate all types of nature, wood, coral, leaves, trees, underground roots you name it.. I find it offensive that you laugh at my seaweed controlling though.." she'd say without any emotion really.
Never in a millions years she would've been so wrong about a person, she thought chip was the mellow, dismissive type however she was wrong, his expressions heavily fitted his appearance well, immature, Blue shook her head from side to side as she went over to the ocean. As she sat down letting the water flow upon her she would fold her arms contemplating a bit more on herself.

"Oh no, no... I am not laughing at your powers, it's just I didn't expect it at all. It's awesome. And on planet like Earth which is full of nature it mush also be very powerful. And I can also see why you're doing natural research, you are attuned to nature. I think that's neat."
It was strange, why would someone create a gem that controls nature? From what he knew Diamonds didn't like organic life. Perhaps this gem was created specially for Earth? He had no clue. It was certainly quite clever idea. "It can be quite creative too. All I can do is shoot fire... yes, I can do fireworks... but that's about it. You can use nature to create... whatever you wanted. Darn I almost envy you this awesome power..."
Blue listened attentively to what he said in which then she kind've felt more relieved once he cleared the air about what he truly meant on her abilties, on homeworld her abilties was used to intensify vegetation into destruction causing harm to any specimen on each planet with plant like structures.
Those days were officially done for her though, she'll never miss them, sure she was an elite of high status however noenthless she is happy currently, not like how she used to be which was more of a Agate's terrifying personality.
Blue would then chuckle a bit under her breathe as he said he was able to shoot fire from his hands in which then she stood up to gaze upon chip," Look, don't belittle your ability, it holds many useful ways to cause critical damages along with being susceptible aganist most things in this world let alone the universe series of planets.. you hold something essential, warmth, cooking, creating, heat is able do so much such as blacksmiths use it when trying to make there metal malleable enough to bend and shape into weapons humans along with us gems of combative role use today." Blue explained

"Yeah, fire is nice thing. I could burn cities to the ground if I choose to... but I don't want to do that. Yes, I can do this..."
He focused fire in palm of his hands and clap them together. A small ball of fire flew towards the sky, where it exploded into giant fireball. Chip moved his hands and the fireball turned into a big flower, which slowly vanished. For that few moments it lightened up the sky, it was probably visible from the entire town. "But it's just pretty. It has no use. And yes, I can use it from time to time to do some good... but humans mastered fire long time ago... gem don't need it... I don't like being a weapon..."
Blue actually could relate on the being a weapon part as she was used to cause terrifying damage to planets," Yeah... I agree on that.." she'd then say in a low tone turning her head over to the side in thought a bit.
Blue would then take off her blue shades vanishing them as she didn't really care for what any of the humans had to say if they took a look at her, it was funny how she was treated as an outcast to the specimens on this planet but as royalty on homeworld.
As she would then turn to Chip, Blue had an idea of something fun they could do," Maybe this is a bit dull to do but would you like to make some sand castles along the beach, you could use your fire ability melt the structures into glass as well which would be quite amazing" Blue asked.

This reminded Chip about his dialogue with Howlite. Back then Chip realised, that he himself was a broken gem too. He was literally broken and even though he was healed he still missed a lot of himself. Fortunately Chip was found by Morion, who helped him. If that didn't happen perhaps he would be crazy now, like Howlite and Sulfur...
"That actually sounds like a fan. But we should be careful, humans don't like glass on their beaches. But sure, might be fan. Plus it's always nice to do something just because we can, not because it serve a purpose..."
It was strangely appealing. Just do something for the kick of it. Do it because you can.
"I'm just curious... if you were in a forest, could you make the threes grow? Or their branches tangle together to form a shelter? Or something like that?"
Once Chip agreed to make a sand castle which was a very fun thing to do from the human's perspective she angled her palms in a cuffing position moving the sand under her, as she started to make her structure Blue heard what else he said about her powers in nature manipulation.
Curious as he was about them she would still enlighten chip," Well, it's more of me shaping them while also layering the vegetation I control into figures really, if they get cut by an enemy I could re layer them which is sortve a regeneration skill when you think about bit.." Blue explained as she proceeded on the base of her sand castle.
As she made some walls around her it appeared as the sand was too close to the water in which then the ocean's water splashed upon the castle making the sand's base crumble.

Chip prepared to release the fire as he listened to Blue's explanation. It was like watching an artist working. She was controlling the sand the same way he controlled his fire. Only where he could ONLY control fire she could control much more... it was most impressive.
"I can see, interesting... I would hate fighting you on Earth, the planet itself is your ammo. It's really really neat."
He raised his hands and a stream of fire shot into the sand, he was controlling it with his hand, rotating it around the base structure, glassing it. It was soon strong enough to support next layer. Though where water was splashing against it the glass cracked a little... but nothing terrible.
Blue sighed in immediate relief once the sand shifted it's form into glass, she would then scoop up some more sand and place it on top of the solid glass base however this time she added square shaped wholes on the sides of the structure to show that these will be the windows.
As she wasn't the brightest artist when it came to sculpting she tried her best at the very least," Yeah but my abilities aren't all that you know, everyone has there weaknesses, even myself.. but the common weakness that not only humans but gems share is well is there emotions, they can cause alot of trouble in general or happiness as well.. I can say that with experience..." she'd say thinking back to her old days.

Chip was controlling the fire very carefully. Glassing all the sand that was added to the structure, without heating the already glassed parts. It was a precise and difficult task, mostly because the waves were still crashing against the walls and heating it more could bring the entire structure down.
Chip knew, what Blue was talking about. Emotions were... difficult. Chip knew too well, that his emotions could easily bring the worse from him. He would get really unstable and explosive... a danger to everyone around him. In that state he could easily burn a small city to ground by accident. "Yeah... one have to remain calm, when fighting as well as when he is making art..."
HE said, while carefully glassing another part of the structure.
Their piece was becoming quite the promising sight appearing with much impeccable structures they seemed to be much of an artistic duo, once he finished turning the build up sand into glass she would then maneuver her hands slightly enough where they would be cuffed as she scooped up more sand to pile it on the outside. Yet this time she would then form it into a more wall like shape as she was know making the the great walls piling more sand in sync with the previous sand that was placed. Blue was attentively watching each and ever precise move she made stopping as she finished, know she needed for Chip to use his fire to make it into a glass wall," Your up my friend.." she said.
"Indeed, with restraint comes much light in your life is always what I say, yet recklessness brings darkness.."
Blue Quartz: That was the worst hi ever XD Why ..?

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
