Close the Oort-cloud, ship warped in to the Solar system, silently like a ghost
and activated its cloacing device In the nextsecond there was nothing The cloaced ship avoided the giant ice blocks and rocks, dwarf planets and swiftly turned to the third planet Passed the outer planets, the Gas Giants, then entered the inner solar system; it waited behind Mars the right time to sneak to the little blue planet Earth After entered the atmosphere, the little crystaline ship parked above a mountain, near Empire city Morion watched the City below He was a guest now... long time ago, this city was his domain, his home Now it was Chip's With a smile, the Smoky Quartz called his young Fire Opal and sent him the coordinates where he is

Chip was patrolling Empire city. He wasn't doing it as often as he used to, but he still let the city know, that he is here and that the city is safe. He had his own fanclub in the city, they usually warned him when something was going on. But lately there was nothing. Both people and monsters learned quickly, that it is easier to misbehave elsewhere. He was just flying around when his communicator once again started to beep. It was a set of coordinates. It was from Morion. That only meant two things - either he was back or it was a trap. Either way his response will be to same - go check it out, hoping for the best, prepared to blast everything into stratosphere.
Morion waited patiently for his young Fire Opal apprenticeto arrive, ship parking on the top of the mountain Actually it was silly, calling him apprentice, Chip prooved himself several times It was long time ago the two met in person... and he missed terribly the young Gem The ship's sensors started to beep, when detected the aproaching fire winged hero The Smoky Quartz smiled and deactivated the cloaking field, and his crystal ship appeared long before Chip arrived to show him, it is not a trap, nor danger With a touch Morion turned on the elevator that lifted him up to the top of the ship From there the Smoky Quartz waved to his young friend
"Take me to your leader! I came in peace!"
Morion smiled He was happy to see Chip, happier than he expected he will be Morion never realised how terribly missed the young Fire Opal

Chip flew in quickly. He really was prepared to blast a smaller mountain into fine powder, but when he saw the ship he knew it had to be Morion. He only had two enemies - Sulfur and Howlite, and neither of them could get this beauty, not in million years. He slowed down, landed on the top of the ship where Morion just lifted. He just flew right into him, hugging him. "Well that's good you came in peace, it would be a crime if I had to blast this beauty of existence. Actually it¨s just good you came."he laughed. He really missed him. He managed to survive without him, but he still missed him a lot. He wasn't just friend, he was the closest thing he had to family.
Chip was like fiery phoenix diving to catch a prey With a hug^^
But the world failed him The Smoky Quartz just stood there hugging back his young Fire Opal But finnaly found his voice
"I missed you kid"
The smoky Quartz admited quietly, but with a great smile
"Oh, do you like my ship? Come inside!"
The lift lowored them, in to the control room Like all Gem-tech the ship was bigger inside than outside With a touch , the cloacking field activated and the ship disapeared from the sky
"The Predator is an old beauty, but upgraded with the latest tech I could find... Do you remember Black Star Diopside? His ship had similar, but our scientist reverse enginered and developed our own version! We are invisible to the human and Gem sensors. Well, to most of them... let me see you kid! You are the same! It is nice to see, you didn't changed a bit! You are still Chip!"

Chip was looking a bit sad for a moment, before he start laughing.
"I thought I will never see you again. Feel good to be wrong."
He really was glad to see Morion. Not going with him was one of the hardest thing he ever did. And he thought it was a decision that was final. Seems like it wasn't. Motion lifted them into his ship. It was really impressive and much bigger from the inside. It was strange and unnatural. And very impressive. "Well I chose who I want to be... I like being me. And while I do change from time to time, it's only temporary. And I am still Chip, even when looking like an octopus/unicorn hybrid."
"I am glad you remained the same. You are Chip, the young Fire Opal, the most powerful protector on Earth"
The Smoky Quartz smiled
"Lots of things happened since I saved you from that bird... many many many things."
Some things were wonderfull, other things were horrible
"...uhm... an octopus/unicorn hybrid? Strange form, yet very usefull! I tought you hate shapeshift! Whats happened, tell me everything! We have time... and hows your "brother"?
The shard of the original Gem "BUT first! Everybody sends their best regards and love kiddo! They are wishing you luck and everything and wanted to tell me to tell you, you are more than welcome on Earth 2.0! Oh... and I brought pictures as I promised! Mostly pictures of the new born and little humans!
"I see.... shapeshifting is a freedom. And you are the fiery spirit of everything thats free"
The Smoky Quartz nodded
"But I am a bit curious, what was the story behind this strange form you have... tell me once, okay? "
Meanwhile he showed the many many many pictures, happy little humans, families, new life on a new world, far far far away from this Galaxy, hidden by technology from the Univerese "It is just a placeholder name kiddo, they will name it... I don't know what will be the name, but something cool! Gaia for example was a primary candidate for this, bit Fire Opal too... they wanted to name it after you"

"Do you remember how we shapeshiften into birds and flew to beta Kindergarten? That was fun... what happened to that peridot we bubbled?" he was quite curious about that for some time. Hopefully she was serving as a battery.
"Well perhaps I will tell you one day." he laughed about Morion's request. It wasn't that interesting anyway, but he just wanted to sound a bit mysterious. He took on some really weird shapes just to know if he could or to gain a new experience. It was fun transforming into a leaf and just fall from the tree or fly as a bird...
Chip watched the photos and it really seemed, that the humans were happy. Or at least kind of happy. It couldn't be easy, being somewhere in the space, without any other humans around. "Nah, planets should have a cooler names. Gaia is too... generic. And naming it after me would be crazy. You were the one who helped them... I was the one who left them." he said.
"That Peridot? She was insane and infected with Corruption. After studiet it, her Gem was put in a power converter. Serving as a battery. Her crimes were too grate to forget and frogive."
The Smoky Quartz shook his head
"Yes kiddo, it is true, it was US who helped them... you didn't left them, you stayed to protect and save their oroginal homeworld. You did nothing wrong nor shameful, and they still consider you as their protector and friend. It never occured in them you betrayed their trust or anything! Don't worry...
He ruffled the young Fire Opal's hair
"And Chip or Fire Opal is a cool name. The planet is like your Gem from space, reddish orange cloud, crimson mountains... deep blue and green seas and oceans... so would be fitting"

"Good... let her enjoy her eternity as a glorified battery. I won't loose any sleep over it." she was ruining gems, including his own shard. That was after all one reason, why he was afraid to release his brother, since he was basically a forced fusion. "It's nice to hear, but still... feel a bit bad about it. If I could change the past I would... but I can't. So I will do what I can in the meantime..." he smiled. There was no reason to torture himself over something he couldn't change.
"Heh, was that a coincidence? Or was you like "Hey, this planet looks like a Fire Opal, let's go there... a nitrogen-helium atmosphere? We manage somehow... what could possible go wrong..." he laughed.
"An eternity of suffering is not fix those crimes but al least we were just and done the right things."
"About our human friends, tust me, don't feel bad, their wish is to be the same cool kid they love and respect! Lets do whatever we could"
The frist steps, for a change Chip and Morion agreed in something^^
"Actually we visited several Earth-like planets before decided to land there. No dangerous predators, no alien bacteria or anything, no sentinent life. Once there was a civilisation there I think, we found ruins, but billion years old ruins, long forgoten by time... nothing there, so our Humans moved in. But decided to stay away from those ancient and alien buildings. Just a couple of rocks, really, but better to safe than sorry!"
"By the way,whats happened with your deffinitly-not-girlfriend-just-a-friend-who-happens-to-be-in-a-female-form? Flurry was her name?
Post by Chip the Fire Opal on Jan 27, 2018 16:55:00 GMT
"Well eternity is a long time for anyone. You are here for thousands of years right? Yet that's barely an eternity... a lot can happen until eternity," he said. Nothing could live forever, the day will come when Morion is no more, when Chip is no more and this universe is no more. It was sad to talk about what happened with Flurry. It still hurt. "We had an argument. She was defending Howlite, she thought he could be saved... when I warned her that he is a monster who hurt everyone, including Light. She... didn't take that well. She said I don't understand and left angry. I haven't seen her since. She is a fool and she will end up poorly. Unfortunately." he said. It was even worse since it was about Howlite. "Fortunately me and Light showed that imbecile Howlite that he shouldn't stand in our way." he said.
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
