"Well I understand it... but bleeding light all over the place won't show them you're strong... it will show them you are vulnerable... that's why I am asking how long will take you to fully regenerate... like stop bleeding... or... lighting... or whatever is that."
He said. Plus, he didn't want to admit it, but he was worried about Morion.
"You are the lord and protector of Empire city, right? Or some fancy title like that, right? What that makes me? As your apprentice... do I have some fancy title with which I could astonish other gems and humans?"
He asked to lighten up the mood a little. He didn't want to think about the dead humans and destroyed buildings.
"How many seconds in a man’s life? Always one too few to change his fate."
The Assassin mused, then shook his head
"Give me a couple of hours, I will be fine. A first aid box could also help... "
He nodded The the smoky Quartz weak laugh filled the room And coughed up some light "blood" "You are my Heir Chip... my Lieutenant! But you can wear any tittle you want kid! They are just words... but words are strong! They have power! Use this wisely!"
Morion smiled, and sat up
"I am glad you are okay my boy... the human rubies sad they saw you and you are... you looked more confident! Even the Humans noticed. But you are still the same Chip... "
Tho' unnecessary But it was heart warming to saw the Fire Opal was a good boy - still was a good boy, after his healing trip
"I will show you... heh... this brings back memories... have I told you the time I first met my beloved Demetry?"
He giggled a bit, before a coughing fit "He was... such a brave Gem.. and strong!"
The smoky Quartz shook his head Memories But listened to his Apprentice
"Hmm... I see. Understandable. "Young Master" or "kiddo" is... yes, I see your problem. Chip is your name, but you need... something more! Something Unique... something that represnets your purity, your strength, your power... your whole "life"; a tittle... noooo, not a tittle, more than a tittle! Something that is you!"

Chip shrugged. He had no idea who Demetry was... never heard of her... or him?
"I don't even have the slightest clue about who that was... so no, you haven't told me yet..."
He admitted. Morion told him very little about his life... true, Chip didn't ask much, mostly because he was afraid to learn something he didn't want to know, like who he killed, and how he killed them... right now they were talking about how difficult it was to tell people their relative was dead... yet Morion surely killed a lot of being with relatives of friends... "Well... that sounds ... fiery. And I am the eternal flame after all... "
He smiled. Fire was his nature, it was part of him... and he liked that... even though sometimes he could loose hi temper... and then his fire was dangerous to everyone around...
"My beloved Demetry was a Jasper. An Owyhee Jasper. To be honest, he was an experimental Gem. And had a name, yes. He was Unique! Strong! Mighty warrior and gentle and caring in the same time. He was fierce, stubborn, full of emotions! He loved Earth...."
The Smoky Quartz watched the dancing flames in the fireplace But his voice was sad
"I am terrible when it comes to emotions. It is part of the job you see. For fifteen millenia I have worked alone, as an Infiltrator, infiltrated courts, colonies, Gem cliques and countless species, wearing masks and created false personalities, or just murdered the originals and replaced them. When my Diamond gave the orders, from watching Eye I became the Wrath, hunting down the targets as an efficient killer. I have danced that complex and complicated dance of the masquerade... never really had the luxury of real emotions. I had to separate myself from my new identity, and its feelings. Feelings, emotions, the mysteries of the heart were always just a weapons in my arsenal. Nothing real."
"But with Demetry... that was real! First time in Diamonds know how long... I was myself, and I loved him. Or at least I think I did."
Morion shook his head
"He is gone now... The Crystal Gems murdered him. I think... but thats the only logical explanation. He disappeared, I couldn't find him and I don't know what happened with him. It was... it is a painfull loss Chip. I'm not going to lie, his loss almost killed me. But I am a Gem, and Gems adapt. I had to adapt too, to survive... my own heart."
He laughed But it was a bitter laugh Then shook his head
"Anyhow, once we fought against monsters... They almost ripped him apart. Boy, I was in panic... a Monster gutted him, light fluids "blood" everywhere, ripped of limbs... It was a terrible feeling, so trust me, so I understand what you are feeling now. But don't worry Chip, I am fine... Soooo... Chip... the Phoenix! The Eternal Flame! Nice one!

Chip listened. It actually explained a lot... especially why Morion hated Crystal gems so much... and also why he was trying to be distant, even when he was slowly opening, only to suddenly closed again in an instant...
"I am really sorry about that... but you shouldn't loose hope... perhaps he is somewhere... perhaps bubbled or something. If you aren't sure he is... gone, you should keep the hope... after all now you are not just some reflection of someone... you are you... you are Morion, the lord and protector of Empire city... you have friends... and minions and me... so... that is something, right?"
He tried to cheer him up.
"But I will be relieved when you stop leaking light... it's just... disturbing... "
"Thank you for your kind words Chip. But he is gone. Let me explain! Her Majesty's, White Diamond's Grand Inquisitor, his excellency, the exalted Opalite is the highest ranking Gem on Earth... NOW. But before that? It was Lady Musgravite, or Lady Thabitha she liked to call herself; he was almost a Diamond! And my beloved Demetry was her bodyguard... they... they disappeared. The Crystal Gems cought them and possibly killed them. Or bubbled. I don't know for sure."
Morion sipped from the glass "You see, Lady Musgravite firmly belived, we could avoid the War. Se belived in the peace... Demetry was a bit skeptic, but he had faith in the Lady... and I must admit me too! She planned to visit the Crystal Temple to negotiate, to organize a summit of the Gems. A peace conference! Then... she was gone. And her bodyguard, my beloved Demetry too. I don't think they went underground... The Lady would never do that and Demetry was strong Jasper! Powerful Quartz Knight, we killed several Gem-monsters together, mountain sized ones... so the Corruption is out of the question.
The smoky Quartz shook his head them smiled to the words: you are you... you are Morion, the lord and protector of Empire city... you have friends... and minions and me... so... that is something, right?
"Chip my boy... that is not something! That is everything! Everyting that is important now! You and our humans and allies and friends!

The story was sad, a hope for gems on Earth... hope for peace, noble idea but unfortunately never realised. Since there were gems on both sides, that didn't believe in peace, it was probably really impossible.
"Well I can promise you I won't disappear... well not without explaining it at least... I will always find a way to escape any potential danger."
He said confidently. He, after all, survived everything so far, even though the first attack came in the first hour of his life... it was helpful to be capable of flight. That could get one from a lot of situations...
"You know... when you found me, and that giant gem monster was squeezing me to death, I was strangely ok with that... I felt like my path was at the end... there was nothing I could do with it... and there would be nobody who would miss me... so why bother... but since you found me I have something to live for... "
The Smoky Quartz smiled, and sipped from it drink, emptied the glass The bandages done their job, tho' some of them were "wet" from the "blood" they were fine Just another night after a hard battle, the life of a warrior A Gem
"In a point of view, your path do ended there Chip... metaphorically, the Monster "killed" you. You are on a new path, you have a new life... and I am not the only one who would miss you or who would mourn you if anythig would happen to you kid! You have several friends and allies, and you are an important part of our life! You have plenty of things to live for!
"Imagination is the only weapon in the war against reality...."
The smoky Quartz mused Then smiled and picked up the kitten "Yes. Yes they are. I love cats too... and sharks. But cats are the number ones. And I think they are the real rulers of this planet, not the Humans or Gems..."
Moiron peted the kitten^^
"There is one thing I have learned about Cats... you never own a Cat. The cat owns You! You are its human or Gem. Hell, these furry little devils trained humans to clean after them! They are marvelous creatures!"
He smiled "If you are lucky, one cat will choose you, to be its Gem. And I for one will welcome your new furry overlord..."
Moiron snickered "You can have one... take care of it kid! I know you will"

Chip, still in the form of a cat jumped on the table where his face got the proper form a true happiness.
"Well, then I will take good of my new overlord, I will see to his every need, before he even knew he had them... because there is something inherently majestic about cats, they are cute, yet glorious... cuddly yet elegant... and they made the most awesome sounds... meow, meow... meeeooow"
Chip stopped acting silly for a moment.
"You know, this is the first time I transformed to something? I couldn't do that... before... and now I can... and it's so much fun... If I chose, I could stay like this forever! Just running through the streets... or perhaps like a seagull? Just flying... eating fish... I mean... I don't planning to do that... but I could... and that's awesome!"
"If cats looked like frogs we'd realize what nasty, cruel little bastards they are. Style. That's their secret"
The smoky quartz laugh
"But I would trade my powers and immortality anytime, to be a cat..."
"Ahhh.... this was the first?! Chip my boy, congratulations! It was... it is a perfect shapeshifting! Sadly, sooner or later you will change back, we are shapeshifters thats true, but shapeshifting is not permanent, and Gems will return to their "default" form eventually. But with practice, you can hold a form quite long!"
"Running like a panther, flying like an eagle, swiming like a fish... these are wonderfull experiences Chip! And we are not limited to animals or plants... we can even take the shape of complex machines, or simple things, like a chair."

"Fortunately cats look like cats... not as frogs... and we will forgive them everything, because they are so darn cute. And now I know, that if I ever blow something up, I will transform into a cat, because you won't force yourself to punish me as a cat... it's a perfect plan!"
He said. Then it hit him - he could transform into anything... not just animals, but things too! That was awesome. He turned from cat to ball... just rolled from the table on the ground.
"Hehe that's awesome! But I still think I like my normal form better..."
He once more started to transform, this time into some big humanoid... but before he could finish, he started to shrink and turned into his normal self. He looked like it was difficult.
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
