Chipped gem, Chip, the nickname made sense now. It was all coming together. Looks like there was a reason for Chip being the way he was after all, and it sounded really sad. That's why Chip was strong, stronger than any of the gems he had ever seen. It was because he had to go through something and earn it. A gem who pops out of the ground as a perfectly shaped, and powerful force is something incredible, something truly forceful. However, a gem that came out of ground incorrectly, but still presses on, and gains that strength over time, that is a gem who is unparalleled. Because that gem...that gem will never fall down without getting back up. "We can go down now, you've done too much for me already, and I've seen enough for now." Ice was ready, he looked up to Chip, and was ready to brave the ordinary terrain below, even if he was out of his element. Just like how Chip kept going despite what happened when he emerged.

Chip was smiling the entire time. He loved flying, but it was always nice when he could share it with someone else. When Ice told him to land he just nodded and started descending slowly.
"Like I said... don't mention it, it was my pleasure, really..."
He said, flying in big circles, slowly getting lower and lower. Normally he would land quickly, but he didn't want to scare Ice with quick landing. Finally, after few minutes they finally landed near the border of Beach city.
"I hope you enjoyed our little aerial tour of Beach city."
He said smiling. For some reason he was quite happy. Perhaps it was because he made friend that looked closer to his age? Sure, they were gems... age meant nothing... Chip was few years old... Ice could be hundreds... or even thousands of years old... but still...
It was time. He was going to go out and explore the world, but he had to do this, at least some of this on his own. It was the only way he could truly adapt. If he kept relying on others, he would never learn to stand on his own two feet. He didn't exactly like the thought, but he knew it was the case.
He faced Chip, for the first time with a serious look to his face, "Look, I think this is where we're going to need to split paths..." He started to tear up, with little ice droplets that sort of froze to the corners of his eyes, so he briefly stopped and wiped them, "It's just, I always rely on others, and I get that that's okay, but not for me, I do it too much." The tears started welling up again, but he just left them, they didn't run down his face, they just seemed to freeze right in place, in the bottom corners of his eyes, he started blushing as well, embarrassed by this particular fact. "This isn't going to be forever, I'm sure we can meet again, right? After all, I still owe you one." Ice mustered up the strength to bring his mouth to a smile.
He didn't want to go out on his own, not in the least, but he knew he had to. For his own good.

Smile disappeared from Chip's face when Ice told him, that it's time to follow different paths. He wasn't quite ready to leave his new friend.
"There is no shame in relying on friends... that's what friends are for you know. Without friends I would be shattered some time ago..."
It wasn't easy to admit, but without Morion's help he would be devoured by that weird snake gem monster... or crushed to death by his little brother...
"But if you feel like you have to go alone, I won't stand in your way... but promise me, that if you ever find yourself near the Empire city, you will come and visit me. It's the biggest Skyscraper in the entire city, you can't really miss it. And you wanted you could always decide to stay... there is plenty of room... and some gems are already living there... not just me. And I could really use having a good friend around..."
He admitted freely. He wasn't ashamed, that he wanted to have friends around... he couldn't imagine being alone again...
Ice sniffled and wiped his eyes and nose, then smiled more confidently. "Okay!" He perked up quite a bit at the thought of reuniting when he had found what he was looking for, "I'll find this city of empires, and meet up with you once again as soon as I've found out how to hold my own!"
Up until a short while ago, he was searching desperately for other gems, but he didn't realise why. Now he did, it was because he couldn't survive on his own. The only way to make sure that it would never happen again, that he could truly survive on his own, was to practise. He couldn't practise this with others though, he had to make it on his own, alone.
He had no idea how long it would take, or what would lie ahead, but he just had to. And now, he had some motivation to go with it.
Ice held out his hand, to the first gem he'd met who would have no problem shaking it. "Then it's a deal"
"For now, Yes" "I don't know how long it will take, but don't worry, this won't be the last time we meet" Ice spoke with sincerity, he didn't just plan to reunite with Chip, he was going to do it, no matter what. "I promise."
He couldn't wait to see this city of empires, but he had to find it, and he had to do it himself. He admired how Chip had become strong, and that was what he intended to do. Not to get strength in an instant, but to earn it.
Ice smiled, and waved, still sniffling as if the entire world was coming to an end. But he knew it wouldn't, he just had to make it on his own, and find what it was he was looking for, then he could go back to leaning on others, and maybe he could be there to help them back instead.

Chip pretended like something fell in his eyes by rubbing his eyes with a sleeve. It was always sad to say goodbye to a friend, especially since it could be quite some time, before they will see each other.
"If you promise then I won't be worried. And until that time come be safe. Earth might be just one planet, but there is plenty to see. I think you will like it."
He smiled one more, before he ascended around a meter in the air. "I am really glad I met you Ice. And remember, you don't owe me anything, so meet me because you want, not because you feel like you have to. Byeeee"
With the last word he quickly ascended into sky, mostly because he felt like he won't be able to hold his tears for long.

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
