"That's quite a simplification though... humans did not always kill the weaker ones... yeah, they did that a lot, but quite often they become allies... or even helped other, weaker humans... and I think they got into a stage when it is more natural to help other then simply to kill them. Tell me ONE reason, why we have right to invade this planet which you yourself just called THEIR... as in human's. What is here, that we can't find on Mars? Or Neptun? Or Pegasus galaxy...perhaps humans just learn this behaviour from us..."
He told Morion since Morion evaded the question the first time.
"So, you want to say me that if a star just appear on my chest and I would tell you "Hey, I'm a crystal gem now" you would just shrugged and sent me on my way?"
"Part of the natural selection. This is an universal law kid! Species come and go... if a stronger arrives in an area, the weak ones perish. Or become stronger eventually! I don't know what is there that we can't find on other planets. Maybe some exotic element... a rare substance? Don't know. But here must be a reason we choose this planet. Tho' Mars used to be a living planet and now it is quite dead... maybe we been there. Okay, not important..."
He shook his head
"Chip don't be a fool! I would never send you away! I probably would have some questions... and would be curious, why would't you stabbed me already with your falming spear in the chest...?

"Survival of the fittest? That's law of organic nature... we are not organic... hell we are not born, we are created... I don't even think humans could wrap their heads around living gems... but I want you to know I am against destroying Earth... I think we shouldn't conquer it... or make a colony here. I like the Earth just the way it is..."
He said. He never saw any other planet... so he didn't know how they looked, but he saw enough documentaries to know, that humans haven't discovered a planet like Earth... so it had to be quite unique...
"Well... you made your opinion on Crystal gems pretty clear... so I would have thought you would bubble me instantly... and perhaps I'm just waiting for you to be enough distracted to stab you. After all fighting you in fair fight would be one-sided as fu*k. "
"Nor the starvation, storms, or any of the disasters... yet they are part of the life, like conflicts, they are, we are the catalyst of change and evolution on the long run."
Morion sipped from his drink
"Just another planet in my eyes kid, maybe I am too jaded..."
The Assassin admited
"But... yeah, Earth is a nice place... Ideal vacation spot. And I do belived in Lady Musgravite's dream about peace. Peacful co-existence. Ask the Humans to allow us to use one or two Injectors per a century, to make unique and special Gems like you... "
But that dream died with its dreamers
"Yes... yes I supose you are right. I hate the Crystal Gems... as an organization. Like the Independents... yet, there is Spider for example, who is not so Loyal.. or Bloodstone who is Independent, and we are allies. And there is Lady Obsidian, a scientist loyal to our Home, and I am this close to shatter her... "
Morion emptied his glass
"Chip, If you ever became a Rebel, promise me kid, you will do a better job, than Rose Quartz and these misrable and useless Rebels! If my Apprentice wants to bacame a Rebel, then at least be the best Rebel in the known Galaxies!
Post by Chip the Fire Opal on Nov 1, 2016 12:36:44 GMT
"Yeah, that's the problem... I think if Crystal gems would do a better job I would join them a long time ago... because I want the same thing they do... but... well that's not important... I don't want to talk about it. You accepted me as I am and I won't change... if Diamonds ever come I will try to avoid them... or I will steal a ship... and fly on some other nice planet, just as you suggested."
He said. He wasn't so sure down deep inside. He didn't want to leave Earth... and at least part of him wanted to visit the Homeworld...
"What have this lady Obsidian do, that you want to shatter her?"
Chip asked curiously. She would have to do something serious to invoke Morion's wrath.
"Well we will see... I am not sure I would be good rebel... but I wouldn't be good loyal gem either I'm afraid... honestly I have no idea why you took me in... you are the grand assassin, I hate combat... you despise the very thought of fusion and I would really love to try it some day... you are devoted to Diamonds and... that grand televisor the obsolete satellite... person and I don't care about them even slightly..."
"I may I suggest Chip... give yourself time to learn about us! To get to know Homeworld, other Loyals... seek an audience with a Diamond or her Voice; visit a Colony or two, or even the Homeworld! Then decide, what do you want, okay?"
The Smoky Quartz nodded
"Lady Obsidian... she is an Obsidian. This one is a scientist... calling her "mad" would be an exaggeration. But not too much. She have a damaged ship, drones, robonoids, equipment... but she is a lone wolf. And I have heard rumors, she attacked and tried to murder Her Majesty's, White Diamond's Grand Inquisitor, his excellency, the exalted Opalite. She is Loyal... but if thats true, that is an unforgivable crime! "
Then listened to Chip
"Yes, you are different than me. Why I took you in? It was the right thing to do... it is that simple. I saw potential in you and I was right! And If you want to fuse sombody... well, I told you my oppinion. The rest is up to you. Just be sure you are strong enough to remain... well... you"
Post by Chip the Fire Opal on Nov 1, 2016 13:55:51 GMT
"Sure thing... just give me a ship that can carry me there... oh wait... we are stuck on Earth, so I can't even if I wanted... so... yeah... and since I'm not sure if Diamonds ever come I might be stuck here for all eternity... or until the sun goes supernova and obliterate the whole planet... "
Chip - the eternal optimist.
"And who is even his emergency the exhausted Opalite? And isn't opalite just discounted opal? Like synthetic or something? And why this lady Obsidian the obsidian tried to kill him?"
Like quite often Chip had gazillion question at once. And it almost seemed like he is intentionally saying his name wrong...
"Well... perhaps you should try it too... I mean with someone you trust... "
wink wink... "It could perhaps teach you and that person a lot about the other... perhaps even help you better understand... that person... and vice versa..."
"Chip... Humans already sent several people and some animals in to space. Even without the crashed Gem ships, leaving Earth is a strong possibility within a decade or two."
Morion was optimistic too^^
"And at the moment, there is at least three functional gem spaceship on Earth, one is parking sometimes next to the skyscraper, cloacked....with damaged hyperdrive. So things are not that grim."
The smoky Quartz sipped from his drink
"Her Majesty's, White Diamond's Grand Inquisitor, his excellency, the exalted Opalite? Well, he is an old Gem, like me, and duh, he is Her Majesty's, White Diamond's Grand Inquisitor! Her closest advisor. Yes, I am well aware, opalites are... syntehtic things. Like Obsidians are just fused vulcanic glass... but in Her Majesty's, White Diamond's Grand Inquisitor, his excellency, the exalted Opalite case, I guess he was made, like you, for White Diamond, to be special... his abilites are quite unique! A special, elite Gem.
But the question was good
"Why Obsidian tried to kill him? It is... a really good question and actually I don't even have proof. Carbide, an experimental scout, who is Her Majesty's, White Diamond's Grand Inquisitor, his excellency, the exalted Opalite's friend and companion was the one who told me... and she iiiiiis... well, not as loyal as she should be, so to speak. Like Spider, if you get what I mean. So I am very cautious with this whole thing!
Wink wink? Well, the kid was Bloodstone's friend... it was just a mater of time, and he would tell him
"I almost fuses with Bloodstone kid and it wasn't the best experience... holding back my personal demons was really hard, and the last thing I want, to let them consume anybody's mind and soul... especially if that somone ss imporant to me, like you!"
Post by Chip the Fire Opal on Nov 1, 2016 14:45:39 GMT
"Why do you always repeat his whole title and name? Can't you just call him Opalite? It's clumsy... and long. Her Majesty's White Diamond's Grand Improviser, his elegancy, the expired Omelette... telling that all over again...would you like if I call you Smoky Quartz, from the Morion variant - Facet-7F2R Cut-8YQ, Her Majesty's Blue Diamond' loyal servent, her eye and Wrath, Currently lent to Her Majesty, White Diamond and lord and protector of Empire city, every time I would address you?"
Chip asked, obviously mocking those long names and titles, even though every other try was less and less funny. It didn't bother Chip much, obviously. "Well, I'm pretty sure my mind and "soul" are inconsumable. I am quite resilient after all... it was just an idea... though I think it would be interesting... you should worry less about me... I told you, that I will be long after the Gem Empire is nothing more then distant memory on dust covered pages of some long forgotten book..."
"I honor him by saying his title, he earned it... Fire Opal, the Eternal Flame, the Rising Phoenix, Protector of Empire City, My Apprentice, friend and heir... "Chip"!
He winked and sipped from his drink
"Hmpf... you ARE a brave one..."
But it was dangerous Kids The Smoky Quartz emptied his glass, then stood up
"Damn it... Im going to soooo regret this"
He murmured, and pulled Chip up, into his embrace, Morion unfolded his wings, spread them, with a bit shapeshift, huge black wings, smoke and darkness, silk soft shadows hided the Gems from the world; an embrace, a hug, a spin... music in the air The whole movement was fluid and like a dance... ...to a point, the bodies started to glow, become intangible, just two light mass, with two floationg Gemstones... starting to meld... The young Fire Opal saw for a brief moment their would be internal fusion realm... were he saw Morion But he was not alone Behind him, there were shadowed figures, his inner demons:
"Well now, what do we have here...? He is a cute one!"
The Voice whispered, with a soft voice, like silk The Beast
Its voice was more of a growl really, growls and hisses, not real words, or whisper, just feelings. Chip could sense its curiosity
Not that the Hunger had any voice... it was silent, really. Just it was there too... strong enough. Primal. Dangerous. Its silence was its voice And watched the Fire Opal.. silently... patiently...
The Anger's mighty roar filled the fusion realm There were more - including a titanic shape, a tenctacled lovecraftian horror - , but they were the closest; Chip could see the chains of solid smoke and darkness; Morion tired to hold them back, so they stay in his mind Except one, whos ghostly form - the form of a long lost lover, the Owyhee Jasper, Demetry - gently put his hand on Chip's shoulder
He stand beside him as a protector Morion growled, but tried to stay calm
"Get out kid.... NOW!!!"
He turned, spread his wings, summoned his scimitar, and the wave of his hand pushed the Fire Opal out to protect him from the Smoky Quartz's own mind The forming Fusion was over as soon as its started to form Both Gems stumbled back; Morion was gasping
"S-s-sorry... I... I am so... sorry... kid... and... don't freak out"
Then poofed With a cling his Gemstone landed on the carpet
Post by Chip the Fire Opal on Nov 1, 2016 15:35:07 GMT
Well... a lot of things happen too quickly... He had no idea what was going on, since it was something unknown to him... but he got into Morion's mind? Or at least that what he though it was. It was dark and scary... but to his own amazement he wasn't scared. He saw several... aspects? of Morion's mind... probably his inner demons. They were terrifying, but Chip knew, that Morion as he knew him wouldn't hurt him. Thanks to that he was able to face them without fears.
"I don't fear any of you!"
His voice was strong and he felt incredibly adamant about it! But before something more could happen he was "Pushed" out by someone he didn't recognise... and as quickly as it started in also ended... Morion was gasping...
"Freak out? That was awesome! If you wouldn't end it I could..."
Then Morion poofed...
Chip stayed there... puzzled. The experience, however short, was intense... but he felt like he could do it... he even could Morion fight his inner demons... it could have worked! Oh well... he picked up Morion, hid it, so nobody else could see it and went back to his room... it needed some cleaning... there was glass everywhere... most of his things were just lying around. He put Morion on a pillow and started cleaning... waiting for him to reform... he had no idea how long would it take, but he would protect him in the meantime...
It took several hours Actually, more than six But after that, the black gemstone started to float and the Smoky Quartz reformed Without any "bleeding" wounds... and looked around
But his voice was a bit weak, rubbed the bride of his nose
"Are you okay kid? Sorry, it was... very irresponsible of me, to give in and do this with you. You are strong, but still... this was dangerous! And the poofing of your friend is never a pleasant sight. I should have known better..."
Morion wasn't angry to Chip tho'; or angry to anybody, except himself
"I hope I didn't hurt you or anyting..."
The Smokey Quartz was a bit nervous. Fire Opal was a good kid.
Post by Chip the Fire Opal on Nov 1, 2016 16:07:34 GMT
Chip ended the cleaning some time ago. His room was almost back to normal... except there was no glass in the window... and his computer war broken... and a lot of his things had holes in them... from glass shards... but otherwise like new. Chip was tinkering with the broken computer when Morion started to reform. He was like new.
"Welcome back. The room looked a lot better before the explosion... I think I'll need to redecorate. But I'm fine, really... perhaps now, when I saw... that, you will let me help you. Why should you fight those inner demons alone, if we can do that together. I'm not afraid of them... I was just... surprised... you could have warn me before doing that, just for the future reference."
He smiled. "Are you ok? Nuke to the face... then poofing... can't be healthy for you..."
It seemed that Chip was taking it lightly... perhaps even too much...
"Just ask the humans about the new windows... and we will replace your stuffs"
The Smoky Quartz nodded Then came the silence Morion avodied Chip's look. He saw it, there was no need to deny the truth
"The whole Rebellion and the following events and times were a bit traumatic"
The Assassin admited quietly
"I think this is why this happened to me. I am a Morion, a Smoky Quartz, a Gem... but like gemstones, I have... "facets". Voices in my head, born from the chaos, the fears, the loss of my Diamond and so on... But I am fully capable to do my duty. I'm in charge, not the Voice, or the Beast, or the Hunger... They are here, inside, but they are the part of me. They was alway there. Actually I think everybody have these voices, called regret, anger, pity... just now... in my case they are a bit louder and developed some sort of sentience, sometimes manifesting themself to me, sometimes just bugging me... nothing I can't ignore! After all, they are Me. We are Morion... "
The Quartz smiled cheerily to the kid, but then sighed sadly "I am not too proud of it... but adapted to the situation. And I don't think you could help... but thank you for your kind offer. Please don't mention this to anyone. Okay? And don't worry... poofing is "healthy".

"I was thinking about doing that... but I didn't want to have to explain why the Boss is lying on my pillow... I thought it would be best to keep it secret... then again I could say that I poofed you, that would raise my prestige to stratosphere... but nah... also I didn't bubble you, so I'm not ready to be rebel just yet... "
He said once Morion came back.
"Yeah... I think I understand that... there are parts of us we would like to contain... but sometimes it could be difficult... but we have to try, right? We can't allow those parts to be in control... could we?"
Why don't you try it... let's call it... experiment?
Could that be one of those? Or was it because... Chip looked in the upper corner where small white quartz was flying in a bubble..
"Well... I read that Fire Opals were healing gems... that were helping people get over their trouble... perhaps those aren't just rumours..."
He said. Of course he never had any healing powers... but that was because part of him was missing... and it wasn't anymore...
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
