The Smoky Quartz groaned; he was an Assassin, an agile, quick warrior... but his strength lied in the surprise attacks, not in the face - to - face combat He was not useless tho' Shapeshifted to his favoite, the lack alien feline form, and with powerful paws, claws and jaw and fangs started to tear apart the shard drone's nape
"It have to be inside of him... somewhere!"
Morion growled with a mouthful of cables Chip's fire melted the parts of the plate like "scales", but after a plate become useless, te drone simply shedded it down, cables and wires grabbed a car, and tore it apart, made a new plate to replace it The drone tried to use his titaic body and tail to crush his older brother Furious and bitter flashing immages flooded Chip's mind again: A Rubie summoned his little knife as she charged "You will..." A Zaphire, looking down to a steel mandible that stabbed her, before she poofed, liquid light blood dripping from her mouth "...die..." A Pearl, talking to a communicator as she stumbled to a ruined building, holding her wounds"...like the rest." A human with a makeshift spear in his hand as he jumped from a crane yelld "DIE!!!" A Rubie shaking her fist "I will...." A Bismuth looking around in horror"...destroy..." A Pearl, her eyes narrowed"...you!" A Rubie shaking her fist "I will...." A shocked Pridot "...devour..." A Rubie spitting some liquid light "blood" "...your..." A Zaphire, kneeling on the ground, examining somthing and murmured "...shards" The Fire Opal sensed the shard... form the "chest" area of the shard-drone

It worked perfectly... Chip's plan worked as he planned, even though he had to experience terror of several gems and humans killed by this abomination... then again, his little brother ate at least one Peridot... Chip was scared to found out that he was smiling about the thought...
Other communication with the abomination wasn't necessary, since he knew, where to find the shard. Chip moved to face the monster, waiting for it to raise it's body like before. Once it did he summoned second lance, and blasted fire from both of them, right in the "chest" from where he felt the shard...
He flew right against it... he will burn his way through it if needed! The only important thing was to get the shard! He couldn't allow this creature to harm any other... neither gem nor humans! It was terrible plan... once he flew into the hole he just melted he had one chance - to find the shard and tore it free... otherwise he would be in quite the pickle...
The Smoky Quartz saw the young Fire Opal as his apprentice started to melt the chest of te beast He quickly climbed down and burried his claws deep in to the metal, to help to tear it open
"It is a terrible plan...!!!"
Morrion growled The hole was big enough for the quick and agile little Chip to flew in Inside the rusty belly of the beast was hot and steamy... tentacle like cables and wires tired to capture the Gem, tried to entangle and crush him! With fire and his lance, Chip managed to reach the "heart" It was a huge shard, gloving, blazing with red and orange light ...and it was in a force field bubble His little bro' assmiliated some Gem-tech over the years Flashing immages flooded Chip's mind again: A Rubie's face "Please..." A Zaphire "Please..." A Pearl "Please..." A human, with some children behind him "Please..." A Bismuth"Please... " The other Pearl"Please..." A scared Pridot "P-p-please...!" Some of the Gems were in bad shape, on the brink of poofing, wounded, defeated... the human was covered with his own blood. The only common was - aside from the same star shaped symbol on their uniform - the fear and desperation in their eyes and voice The last flash was... Chip himself: The Fire Opal, after he emerged from the ground, scared, surrounded by the Peridots and their sphere like robonoids A beam after another hit the chiped Gem's body, forcing Chip on his knees, when the he threw back his head with a scream "NOOOOOOOOooooooo!!!" and a huge blast of fire annihiliated everthing around him...
Chip's lil' bro' tried to seize the opportunity and stab his big brother in the back with several tentacle like cabel, ended in sharp blades...

Chip knew, it was a terrible plan... a really, really bad one... but this was the only chance... this creature will never again kill or shatter anyone else! He would take care of it... or die trying... he found the shard... and it was protected by a force field... before he could do anything with it, he saw another flashes of memories... all of them the same... he saw probably the last moments of several gems... humans... and even children...
Chip couldn't hold his anger any longer... exactly like back when he emerged... a huge blast of fire annihilated everything around... he had no idea if it will destroy the force field... but sooner or later it fill destroy whatever it was making it. Several cables hit him, but weakened by the flame they couldn't poof him... just injure him, only to get melted seconds later...
Chip's anger was more then enough to help him hold his form even when injured.
Your reign of terror ends now, little brother! You won't hurt anyone ever again!!!
Chip summoned another lance and stabbed it right into melting piece of gem technology nearby, only to fire another flame right from the lance, shattering the gem tech...
With the tech gone, the force field should be gone too... allowing Chip to bubble the shard...
The field disappeared... A Bubble and a wave of the hand, and Chip sent his contained "brother" home And now? Now the young Fire Opal was inside God know how many tons of rusted metal, technology and trash that was held together by the will of that shard he just bubbled^^ The titanic body started to crumble, fall apart... A somkey gray paw tore a hole and silver eyes peeked inside
"Are you okay kid?"
Morion pulled out his young apprentice, and jumped in to safety as the shard drone's body fall apart and with a deafening rumble crashed in to the flaming, endless sea of rust with explosions The Smoky quartz shapeshifted back to a humanoid form, crouched next to Chip on the top of a ruined building watching the fires and smoke
"You were garte out there Chip... you saved "him"...."
Post by Chip the Fire Opal on Nov 5, 2016 14:12:24 GMT
He did it! He defeated this monster and freed his little brother... he was now safely bubbled in his room... together with his other shard and that corrupted quartz. With the shard gone the whole monster started to fall apart... and he was in the middle of it. He wanted to summon wings and leave, but he couldn't... he was probably injured much more seriously then he thought. Fortunately Morion tare into the monster...
"No, I'm not... "
He answered, honestly like always. And it wasn't just the fact, that he had 4 holes in his back... the images he was shown were so terrible... and he was still so angry...
Morion put him on the roof of some building... and only there did he found out, how drained he really is. The fight, anger and flame took everything, he could barely move... and damage he taken didn't help...
"He begged me... like every single gem and human he killed... he begged me not to destroy him... I couldn't convince him that I don't want to hurt him... "
It was very obvious he was badly shaken by connection between him and his brother...
The Smoky Quartz sat nex to his aprrentice "I can't immagine what you have been through"
"But... it must have been horrible. Your borther was a cunning, brutal... but I don't think he was evil. He tried to mess with your head kid. But I think he was well aware, you didn't wanted to hurt him in any way! I think you DO convinced your lil' bro', you wanted him to help, not to destroy him... so he didn't considered you as a real threat! And so he made mistakes"
The smoky Quartz smiled a bit And after a little hestiation, hugged the kid After all, be a Gem or not, Chip was just a kid

Chip way lying on the ground looking into the sky with blank stare...
"Me neither... I still don't know what to make of it... he killed humans... shattered a lot of gems... and for some reason all of them were crystal gems... "
He was puzzled. Was this the part of him who was loyal to Diamonds? Or was it just to mess up with his head? Could he felt that Chip thought simillary as Crystal gems when it came to freedom on Earth? Who could have known... "Well I am not so sure... he tortured with the images... and he was quite vocal about killing me and getting my shards... so who knows... but I hope I got to him at least a little...when I healed the shards I don't want my brother to kill me..."
His strength was slowly returning... very slowly... but he still couldn't fly...
"Let's hope so... and thanks for saving me..."
He said, he sounded very tired... he closed eyes, since he was barely holding shape...
"Good question... But don't froget kid, we don't know that mental torture was just a trick, or memories what your brother saw, and he used as a form of communication. We were lucky the mental link even existed..."
The smoky Quartz shook his head "Not so long ago during a meditation I have a dream-walker as a visitor ... an insane and dangerous Gem, that used some form of telepathy, like Lady Musgravite used to, or some kind of an Artifact to invade my mind... I guess you had a similar experience."
Morion watched the tired Fire Opal
"Anyhow, he is now in a bubble, and you can communicate with it when you want... after all, untill you don't put the shard in a vessel, it is only a shard in your hand. So all is not lost... it is just a matter of time, and some therpy, and you and your bro' will be best of buddies!"

"I met one crazy and dangerous gem in a scary mansion some time back... he was really really creepy... big claws, tried to shatter me... but failed. He was really really creepy..."
Chip said. Gems were quite diverse... some of them were good, some evil, some were totally nuts and batsh*t insane...
"I hope I will be able to help all of my shards... two are safely bubbled... one to go. Then, hopefully I would be able to heal them... in the worst case scenario, they will stay bubbled, but at least together... but we will see... at least this one won't kill anyone else... "
Chip tried to sit up, but couldn't. He was too tired and too injured. He needed some time to rest and to heal. At least his game was intact... "I think I never felt worse in my entire life..."
Post by Chip the Fire Opal on Nov 5, 2016 20:51:45 GMT
Chip still wasn't getting up... right now, he couldn't even imagine that he will ever get up... "Well... I didn't think it was important... I am not even sure if I could find the mansion... but probably I could... but I really don't want to get inside again... it was too creepy... and scary..."
He was talking quietly and slowly, like it was too taxing for him... "I think I don't want to poof. It would probably be less painful and I would probably heal quicker... but I don't want to... inside the Gem I would have to think too much and I don't want to think right now... I could actually use one of your lessons right now... just to keep me from too much thinking... "
Right now, the only thing he could think about were the gems his brother shattered... begging for their life...
"Not important? Chip its.... - then Moiron sighed - ...I supose a Gem that tries to shatter you is not a new thing to you.... considering your history with Gems. But kid, this is important! That Gem tried to murder you! And according your description that Gem is the same who invaded my mind!"
The smoky Quartz wasn't too happy, but he wasn't angry to Chip
"You don't have to get inside again! Just give me the adress and we will demolish his hiding place... we will burn it to the ground, then plow over and sown it with salt!"
Morion promised Then nodded
"No prob kid... rest, we have time. It is over now. Heh... a lesson? You know you should ponder over my lessons!"
Post by Chip the Fire Opal on Nov 5, 2016 21:34:56 GMT
"Well... I guess I should have told you... but I was trying to forget that ever happened. There was this old weird man who died to help me... and I'm not really happy that so many people and gems are dying because of me... or my shards... "
This thought really didn't make him feel any better... quite the opposite actually. It was really depressing.
"I don't know the address, but I think I should be able to find it from the air again... I will take you there if you want. I kinda promised him that I won't let what he's done unpunished... "
It would be quite satisfied to burn that stupid house to the ground...
"I'm thinking about your lessons... that's it, I want to think about something different then a dozen gems killed by my stupid shard!"
"After some rest... lets find that hideout kid! And destroy it... I tought maybe Bloodstone could help me to heal that dream-walker Gem... and he could be a strong ally"
The smoky Quartz admited "But his crimes are too severe. Like that mad scientist, Obsidian, the Dream-walker is need to be... bubbled."
As he promised to Chip No shattering Just bubling
"Okay okay... I understand. Only when you are in the grave will you have nothing more to learn...."
"My lesson for today is this: There are two ways to allow a man a make a decision. The first is to let him brood over it. The second is not to give him a breath. Our way is the second way. When men are forced to make decisions at a moment’s notice, they make mistakes. When they have time to think, they have time to sort out the details and calm any foul temper they may be carrying. Therefore, I say force a man to make a decision without a moment of thought. And force him to do it in public..."
Morion: Oh, there! I must say, you look fabulous in this purple/magenta colour! You would look better in our Imperial, Homeworld-loyal sky-blue tho', but... nobody is perfect. Just the Diamonds
Oct 2, 2021 6:42:02 GMT
Melody: Oooh! Well thank you, a change of colour was necessary considering my new duties.
Oct 2, 2021 12:19:49 GMT
Melody: anything to please the Diamonds
Oct 2, 2021 12:20:12 GMT
Morion: So, you are in the Pink Court, gotcha (which means, since I'm blue colored and in the Blue Court, you are pink...ish and in the Pink Court, Light is in the Yellow Court. Alway knew he is a cute little secret agent of the mighty Imperial Army)
Oct 3, 2021 13:53:52 GMT
Light: oh no, fan theorists are striking back
Oct 4, 2021 8:05:00 GMT
Melody: looking good! And it is also good to see you here 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"'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
