Chip fought seriously only few times in his life, but all of those times had something in common - there was no time to chat. Howlite avoided his first attack, but than he just started to chat, allowing Light to attack him. Chip didn't spent a moment. Chip didn't listen to what Howlite wanted to say, not that he would consider it if he had. He just blasted Howlite with a steady stream of fire. He didn't even bother to summon his weapon.
There was a time, when he couldn't fathom injuring other gems... he learned some time ago, that it's impossible. He was a warrior, he was made to fight. But he never shatter any gem, corrupted or normal. He could't even imagine doing it - there were to exceptions form this rule - Howlite and Sulfur. Gems that needed to be stopped by any means. Even if that means shattering them...
Chip knew he should feel something when trying to shatter Howlite - rage? sadness? satisfaction? anything... but he didn't felt anything, he was just concentrated on the task ahead... burning Howlite to crisp...
Howlite screamed in agony as he was shot. Then the flames hit him and he screamed even louder. He quickly rolled out of the way then got behind Pearl.
"You bastards. You talk so high and mighty about how what I do is wrong. Yet you're willing to burn me to a damn crisp because I got angry? What if Light got angry Chip? You gonna burn him too? Well screw both of you I'm leaving this crap fest."
He started walking away. Not even putting up a fight. He was pissed to say the least. He HATED Chip. Chip was so cocky and prideful of himself. Howlite knew that if Chip or Light had gone through what Howlite went through, Homeworld would have chewed them up and spit them out.

Howlite didn't understand how warrior gems thought. There weren't any talking, until the fight was done. At least in the scenarios where a life was on the line. And against Howlite it always was. Somehow Howlite survived the intense heat Chip scorched him with. He wasn't all that surprised... Howlite was tough gem... it was almost admirable... too bad Howlite did what he did for all the wrong reason.
There was no way in hell he would let Howlite leave. He felt exactly zero regret as he flew upwards, getting a clear view on Howlite and blast him once more. This time with all the fire he could muster. He hated Howlite, he was a monster and he loved it, he was just hiding behind the whole "Homeworld hurt me". Homeworld hurt Chip too. Betrayed him... the first thing Chip had to do after he woke up was to fight for a survival. He didn't even had what Howlite used to have... and he didn't turn to complete psycho...
It looked like Light's attack did more than a Pearl expected, good. Light thought that Chip's attack will finish this once and for all. Hoslite would be bubbled and he wouldn't hurt anyone anymore. That is what a real guardian of this planet should instead of dealing with personal problems like Light used to.
However Howlite's form was sturdier than it looked like. Howlite screamed, really loud. Light's squished his eyes and covered his ears. When he opened them Howlite was srill in a good condition. Which suprised him was that he was going to leave. He said something under his nose "You don't understand... like always..." Everyone is mad sometimes, it is a natural thing. The Blue gem was simply dangerous and that is different. Lifes of all gems and organic life forms like dogs, children or humans were more important than his one.
It felt like Howlite has got so e big isuues about other people. Like he was blaming everyone in HW for what happened to him. And couldn't see that he become just like them... if not worse. Gems are destroying life on planets to stay as a dominant race, so noone would destroy all gem kind. While Howlite was simple minded and could only see the problems that were surronding him. He cared only for his safety... the whole "love" thing must have been another of his tricks. There was simply no way it could be true. But Pearl had to admit he was a rather good actor, he nearly hid all of his flaws under this simple lie.
Chip attacked Howlite again. But it was still not the end. Ligth's had was shaking, he grabed it. His weapon fell and landed on the ground. Light never was created for this and never wanted to do this. Fighting wasn't something he enjoyed. But it had to be done.
Pearl landed on his knees. He looked for a while at his stick. Chip could end all of this in any moment. But Light couldn't agree on this. He spoke "Chip... don't do this..."
Pearl grabed his eeapon and stood up. His head was turned to the ground. He than spoke once again "I-I want to do this... I need to do this." In the background a Hummingbird looked at the Pearl from a high tree. It than looked at the grond like it was dissapointed. It ended up flying away, other hummingbirds joined him and flew right behind it. The gems could see them flying away in the direction where Forge was. (Yes, it has got a symbolic minic)
The war was coming, corrupted gems were everywhere and what was Light doing? Having a sensitive tee party. There was no place for him if it was going to look like this. Rebelion simply didn't need him than. Rebels needed warriors, not an over sensitive Pearl that was letting emotions to control him. It didn't feel comfortable to try to act different and don't show your true self... but it had to be done. For the small good things worth protecting on this planet.
light turned his sight to Chip. His eyes were glassy "But I can't to this alone." Howlite was probably arleady close to poofing. But that wasn't the reason why Light couldn't do it alone. Maybe Chip was the one who could help him overcome all of this. "Can... we fuse?" He spoke nervously. He NEVER asked anyone to do this. And it still felt weird to ask. It was a different type of gem afterall. The fusion of a Pearl and a Fire Opal would create something totally different. Well maybe not totally because it could have had a natural counterpart (it was confirmed by crewuniverse).
(Since we all know Chip will say "yes". *cough* *cough* Thread title!)
Light scratched the back of his head. He looked rather confused "I once saw 2 gems that fused by kissing... should I kiss you?" (OMG say "yes" please)
Howlite gasped and screamed as he was burned again. He laid there in pain.
"You bastard..... To think I considered a fresh start with you once. Sulfur was right. That time with Morion ruined you. Sure you know pain. But not like me. You're young. Very young. And you had Morion take you in. I never had that. I don't want your damn pity if that's what the two of you think. That's not what I want. What I want is for you to stop pretending that you know what it's like to live how I did. You never will."
His form flickered. No not now. His internal crack... No. No. Why now?! He struggled to stay together. One more shot and he was pretty much done for. He suddenly heard Light and he glared at him.
"So you'd take someone like Chip over me?! You're dumber than I thought! I thought you were supposed to be a thinker Light! I'm the obvious choice and you know it! At least I do things to keep you safe. Can you say the same for Chip? Only reason he's helping you today is for his own selfish anger towards me. So please tell me again how I'm some horrible person."

Only Pearl's words stopped him from burning Howlite to the crisp. Chip was completely unmoved by what Howlite was saying. He was completely deranged. It was so sad.
"Stop fooling yourself... you are a monster... there is nothing complicated about it... the rest is just a big lie you are telling yourself to feel better... or perhaps to feel anything?"
He was saying this while walking to Pearl. He said nothing else. He understood why Pearl had to do this. He also understood why he couldn't do it alone. Pearl wasn't a warrior gem, Chip was and even he had troubles harming others. The fact he was perfectly fine with hurting Howlite was just another proof that Howlite was a monster... worse than even the corrupted gems...
Chip never fused before, Pearl's idea was the best idea as how to do it. He came to Pearl and kissed him. He wasn't a human... neither was he human-like enough to understand kiss in the same way as humans.
Light covered his face with his hand. He than spoke and tried to don't let emotions take control over him. Howlite was just... too much. "I literally keep quesrioning everything I do since I met you. I NEVER understand you because it is IMPOSSIBLE to understand you. So could you stop blaming me for thinking that I understand you?! You are so selfish that you think you are the only person on the whole stupid universe who experienced pain and deserve mercy after everything you did to us!" His voice kept becoming louder and more angry while he was saying all of this.
Howlite glared at him but it didn't matter. Tne Blue Gem was just about to vanish from Light's life, forever. He would stay safe in bubble till Para would invite a golem body that would menage to control him and all his quirks. Or he would end up being shattered if Chip would be the one who is more in charge.
Light glared at Howlite just like he did. His face was rather emotionless. "And who are you to tell me who was I suppose to be?! You know NOTHING about me, I never told you my story! And your choices are the reasons why now some weird Quartz soldier with a long tongue is after Lady Para and the rest of the rebelion! I would rather die than live without her and you know it! But you don't care! Why would you! Huh!?" He thew away his weapon at the tree because of his anger. He looked at the ground so his long hair would cover his face and tears. He than continued with a more quiet voice "I truest you... and you fooled me again, why would I believe you after everything you did? You are the walking example that some people don't deserve the help." He looked at him again, he also fixed his hairstyle that was covering his vision "Chip came here to save everyone from you, he is doing all of this to people and gems you are about to destroy like me. Since I met I am nothing more but a pathetic pearl who deals with his problems instead of doing something usefull. Para deserves a better assistant..."
Suddenly Chip approach Light and kissed him. He closed his eyes and was hoping that something cool will happen. But when he opened them everything was the same. It wasn't as calming and nice as Para's hugs. Only the hugs from Para. Hugs from other people were weird... and bad, they were just making Light feel worse. Was Howlite the reason of this? He kept doing this to Pearl
Light shook his head "Huh?! Why am I still normal?! I broke something again?! No..." (Chip! Could you like cheer Light up? Like made him feel better and hug him or five high him.)
(Am I the only who thinks this scene was so savage? Howlite just saw his crush being kissed by his enemy lol)
"Oh you both are so naive. 'I was in pain for a few years Howlite! I know just as much suffering as you do!' and now you two honestly thought you could just fuse? That ain't how fusion works. Fusion isn't just about wanting it. It's about your feeling. When you truly share a bond with someone. I've fused 3 times. Only 2 were stable. Variscite didn't plan initially on fusion. We fused because we shared each other's pain and wanted to help each other. I still can't believe she agreed. Blu and I fused out of love and the need to understand each other's mind. You didn't fuse because one of you doesn't think it's needed. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm getting the hell out of dodge."
He slowly got up and started walking away. As he did his form flickered.

Chip turned to Pearl. It might appear that he wasn't paying attention to Howlite anymore.
"Light... don't pay any attention to Howlite. He is a sad miserable being, fearing his pain but unable to live without it... so he is trying to cause as much pain as possible to make himself feel better. He is not worth anything..."
It was so sad that one miserable cretin was able to destroy so many lives. He was a plague...
"Don't worry about him, don't worry about the fusion... it's not important. You are an awesome person and a good friend. You are only wrong about one thing - you don't need me to save you, you are more than able to save yourself. And you made the first step by not allowing Howlite to influence you anymore! You are stronger than this, stronger than him! And if you ever feel like you can't do it... well that's what friends are for, isn't it? Let's face this crazy world together."
Light didn't understand what was he saying? What was this love?! Another one...? And whre was... she... what did he do to her? He slowly started to get mad, she wasn't the kindest person... but she definitly deserved someone better than Howlite.
Light was just standing there. Did Chip's words moved him? Did they make feel like he wasn't alone in the dark after all? Maybe...
Pearl's and Opal's gemstones started to glow. Soon their physical forms looked like he pure light that connected to each other, creating a big ball of light that started to raise. Just few seconds later it started to look like a person. A person about the size of an adult men (Garnet size? A little bit higher?) With tree arms and 3 eyes. His hair was wild like the wind was blowing at it. The fusion, because that is how you call it, started to lose it light and gain colors. He had a mix of white and orange colors. He had two fire orange gem on its back and chest. The one on the chest had a small pit. The other one generated a pair of wings. Those wings looked like they were made of pure fire. But it wasn't just an oridinary fire, it looked more... magical and peacefull. There were small lights coming out of it, they didn't seem to hurt plant life in any way, so it was probably only looking like a fire.
The fusion slowly opened its three eyes after being formed. He looked at the rebelious blue gem. Without any waiting he flew to the gem and hit him with both of his wings. Howlite took a lot of damage before, this attack just finished the job. The gem's form quickly dissapeared, leaving his gemstone on the ground.
The winner gently grabed it while having a smirk on his face. The placed it on the big rock that was around. "Where are my manners? I didn't introduced myself to you dear, I am Light Opal." He said while playing with his hair, the Light Opal looked again at the Howlite gem, this time with a glare. "But you weren't nice yourself, were you? Leaving a party at a time like this without any goodbye..." Fire Opal turned around and looked at the ground "What a funny situation dear... You are not so talkative anymore huh? And look who is the boos now! Our roles turn around, You are not in charge of mine life anymore!" He turned back to the fallen rebel "How does i- she is alive..."
Before the fusion finished his entence, Howlite's gem started to fly away. It was in the hand of a holographic projection. It looked like a small cube with a pair of wings and a hand. There was also a small orb inside the cube.
Light Opal looked rather suprised "You made a mistake my friend, he does not deserve your mercy. Next time, he won't be so luckly. Farawell... dear Mocha Pearl."
(I am too lazy to change my account and make a new post) Mocha just took Howlite's gem and flew away like it was nothing. The fact that she was a hologram and she wasn't using her wings ro fly (they were more like a decoration) explained why noone hear her, her moves were silent.
Mocha didn't say a thing while she was doing this. She also looked emotionless due to her cube form. What were her motives? Who knows...
She flew pretty far away. She didn't want to be anywhere near the humans or other gems. She deposited blue, a little bit scratched gem on the desert. A place where Rose Quartz was known to come sometimes. Just few miles away there was Howlkte's ship. However it was arleady partly covered by the sand and was without the main computer. It was impossible to fly without it. Howlite would probably reform soon. Or he would be covered in the sand, never to be seen again.

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
