Chip suddenly felt really bad. Spider was right, she didn't chose how she looked... well a little, but she was apparently unable to hide the 2nd pair of eyes and arms... and humans had to find that... disturbing on some level...
"I'm really sorry...I didn't meant that...I mean... you are not a monster... you might look a little scary, but didn't mean you are a monster... and you are trying to find cookies for me... monsters wouldn't do that... last monster I met tried to kill me... cookies and death are quite different..."
He was babbling a lot, but it happened to him when confornted with situation he wasn't ready for. And he certainly didn't want to be mean to anyone... not intentionally at least...
Thrown cookies suddenly made him feel much better.
"Thanks for cookies. You know, monsters never gave cookies... so... there you go."
He said while he was trying to get inside the package.
Spider shrugged, "Listen. We are all kinda... Monsters to them. I mean... You look like an orange, but the humans aren't trying to put you on a tree. Humans are able to look past what we are, which is why I like earth. For some of us..." She pauses and eats another candy piece. "Its harder to get them to look past."
Chip had it easy in Spiders eyes, he even admitted to looking like a child. Getting them to feel sorry for him and do his bidding that way. Spider didn't have that tactic. She still lived in a cave when she went home to beach city. No human would rent to her, or build her a house when she looked like she was going to cover up the entire place in webs or murder people in it.
"Those cookies are pretty good. The human people here make awesome chocolate chip cookies." Spider smiled, not caring that her fangs were showing. "If you don't mind me asking, Chip, why did you come to earth? Did the diamonds send you too?"

"Humans are naturally suspicious to anything they don't quite understand... and I think shape shifting sentient gems that could project humanoid bodies are little too... off for their taste... well at least that is what I gathered from my time among them..."
He said while stuffing his mouth full of cookies. It even expanded for a second so it could contain all the cookies. It was quite some time since he last had some.
"Yeah, I didn't come to Earth... I was created here, in Kindergardens... but there was a landslide which buried and damaged me... when I finally got out they tried to shatter me because I'm chipped... and the data upload got wacky, so I miss large chunks of stuff I should know. That's the reason I was living among humans... I guess I was monster in my creator's eyes..."
"Humans don't understand a lot... Come here, try this." She holds out one of the peanutbutter cups for Chip to take. "Try one of these with the cookie. Its awesome!"
She didn't dislike the way the humans operated. It was just going to take more time, more... Interactions before she could become accepted one of them. And it was hard to get rid of the fear, and honestly... She liked it. It was enjoyable and all that. She enjoyed being in a true position of power at least among the humans.
"Ah. 'Born and raised here' as the humans say. If it helps any, I don't think you look like a monster. You look like... A child, but everyones flaws makes something else about them more powerful, ya know? You know. You already work the child angle like a boss."

Chip took the food Spider offered. He had no taste buds, so he didn't feel the taste, but he felt the texture of the food. And cookies had better texture. But this wasn't that bad either. And he was willing to try new things. Except drinking... that felt so disgusting... "Well... mostly, except the "raised" part. Since Morion is the first person who is actually trying to teach me something... and yeah, I don't look like a monster... but I am imperfect... which some gems just can't stand... I believe the peridots that tried to shatter me called me "failed" and "affront to the diamonds". But thanks to that I am the only "child" amongst gems... I look like one and since they screwed the data transfer I have to learn as kids do... so yeah, mastered!"
He laughed. Like they said in that TV show he watched once - Wear who you are like armor, and it can never be used to hurt you.
Spider rested her chin on one of her many hands when he laughed, she smiled and watched him laugh.
"Well, I don't think thats true." She waved one of her other hands, "Morion is loyal to the Diamonds still, and I do often worry about what they are going to do to him if they come here and see what he's done... So, maybe its good you don't know much. Less to worry about."
Spider had been sent to shatter gem with less offenses under their belts then Morion. He didn't seem to get that, that hanging out on earth and adapting so well to this life style was changing him. Changing him in a way that the Diamonds weren't going to like when they got here. Add in Chip and his condition and how... Attached Morion seemed to him... Well... They weren't going to like it.
She chewed her food quietly for a second, "No experiences of other planets... You are basically a human. Has Morion ever told you about the other worlds out there?"

"I guess we will know that the Diamonds are going to to do when they finally arrive here... if they ever arrive. Morion believes that they will and that we could still save us... somehow I have this feeling that it will be a little more complicated in the end..."
He just shrugged. It was actually quite scary, but he was putting on his tough persona. The thought that Diamonds could just glass Earth just as a warning to any other gems, who would just think about rebelling. It would be probably quite effective too. Wasting all the potentially resources and all the loyal gems on the planet just to scare every rebellious one... prove to them, you were capable of huge overkill just to prove your point...
"Nah, never heard anything about other planets... I know only about Earth... I actually don't know anything about the Homeworld..."
Spider admired Chip just then, his ignorance was his bliss. He had no idea what was coming. Spider stood back up on the counter and pushed the remainder of her candies back into the cupboard. She wasn't going to pollute him against the diamonds so quickly. Chip didn't have anything to fear as long as the diamonds stayed on the home planet.
"If it makes you feel any better, the only times I saw the home planet in all its glory was when I was on a mission with my sisters to poison another gem. So, my view of homeworld was a bit twisted. Earth is much better. Even if I was sent here with some dark orders."
She turns and steps off the counter, smiling at Chip as she does so. "We should find Morion. He might know more."

He successfully filtered the rest of the message. He sounded quite puzzled by this. After all, gems were made... how could they have siblings? Or was it some kind of bonding thing?
"You have a sister? I mean... gems could have sisters? And... how could you poison a gem? A...and Homeworld is not glorious anymore? ... ... and what orders?"
Spider probably just learned that it wasn't good idea to say something, that will generate too many questions. Little Chip's curiosity was just too strong to avoid any of those questions. Especially if the answers could be really interesting. He never even thought about poisons affecting gems... after all they were... well gems! How could you poison a stone? Sure, you could shatter it, damage it, burn it... freeze it, shoot it, stab it... pummel it or vaporise it, but poison?
"Oh, sure we should go back to him..."
He said and run back before Spider could answer anything...
The Smoky Quartz was in the main hall He dismissed his humans, when he saw the little Gem running towards him Moiron smiled, like an uncle, to his "nephew"
"Chip... was your Kitchen raid sucessful? I hope Spider could teach a thing or two to you about stealth operations"
The Assassin resten on his cane
"Talking with her is always an enlightening experience! You know Spider Web Jaspers are working in packs. Like the wolves of Earth, for example. Their mentality is a bit different, than the "lone Gems". So observing a lonely Spider Web Jasper, a Spider without a pack? Her adaptation to the current situation is itself a marvelous thing! You can learn a lot of from Spider Web Jasper Chip!
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"'s Origin is still unknown, some suspect it was a viral infection, other claim it was a Diamond experiment gone awry and other suspect the organics were behind it. Regardless no one seem to have a proper answer about what it was and why its only isolated to Earth
*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
