"As you said, an elaborate trap is TOO clever for a shard. Invading your mind, torture you with things it never saw? But know how to push your buttons? Exactly how and what? No my oy, this isn't a shard's work... this is too intimate, too clever, too... "
But Morion shook his head
"...lets pray to the Diamonds, it is a shard and I was wrong all along, not you."
He was willing to give a chance for the theory there was Chip's shard behind all this But it was harder and harder...
"Or Sulfur. After all, that abomination is a mind-walker and your enemy."
The Assassin watched the monitor "But lets say, it is your Shard... it seems she inherited some of your intelligence. Enough to do this. But it is possible, a Gem captured your shard and now experimenting with it. A corrupted Peridot, or that maniac, Obsidian, or any scientist Gem... and an abandoned Kindergarten is full of technology and equipments. Maybe your nightmares are just the side effects of those experiments..."

The very thought that his shard could be used for some kind of experiment was terrifying. Be as it might it was still a part of him... and the very thought that someone could be doing something unspeakable to it... uhm...
"Even if we know it's a trap I still have to go there... but you will be with me. And together we should be able to face anything, right? After all you mentored me well... I could glass the entire valley if needed... probably... well a big part of it... I hope..."
He didn't sound completely sure... but having Morion around was reassuring. "Do you know if there is a warp pad nearby? Or is it wise to use if it is a trap? Is it too far to fly by helicopter? Do we have a jet? Or a bomber plane! That could help..."
It was never a question "I will be on your side. You and me could conquer the world kiddo!"
The Smoky Quartz ruffled the young fire Opal's hair
"Well... it IS tempting to fill the canyons with liquid fire... or bombard it, untill there is nothing left, just a smoldering crater in the size of a small town"
"We already mapped most of the Warp Pad network, and there is one there. But it is an easy target. You are right, we should fly there. The Derelict is almost ready to fly again... but not yet. But I do have a helicopter and steling a jet or bomber is easy for us Gems. But I think it would be better to shapeshift and fly there in the form of birds... a sneaky recon mission. Or we could send there a drone, to look around. A little human flying machine

Chip was glad that not going wasn't really an option for Morion. He was almost afraid that Morion will try to stop him. Fortunately Morion completely understood why he had to go.
"World can wait, now the shard. Though I am not sure if Pink Diamond would approve... after all Earth is her's, right?"
He knew, that Morion was joking, but he still had to make a bad joke about it.
"So... you want to fly there shape-shifted as birds... that's actually quite clever... who would suspect an innocently looking bird... and then BAM! We will rain death from above on our enemies! Or... my shards... "
With that, Chip transformed into an orange vulture. He was looking quite... exotic... and not really all that natural...
"Not bad, not bad at all! Considering you only saw voltures in the television or on the internet... its pretty good. But flaming red and orange voltures are quite rare. Nothing a little makeup can't fix!"
The assassin smile was devilish ^^
"Lets work on this, shall we...?"
He grabbed the bird, and took him to his humans "Ladies... please make this orange birdy a bona fide volture!"
Girls armed with makeup^^ With spray and with powder, hair paint and makeup, to fix the color problem of the bird

"Oh, conquering in her name, then I'm ok with this... after all, this planet should belong to my Diamond..."
He said, though it was the first time, he ever said those words. The voice told him so... and he did believe it. After all the voice was the Fire Opal he should have been... but the very fact that he was admitting that scared the living hell out of him... the voice was silent though... strangely
"Well, the color is... unusual, but I can't really change my color... "
And after some help from humans he was looking like a regular vulture. It felt really bad though... having all those unnatural layers on him... felt wrong. But he didn't complain, it was, after all, the part of the job... so he suffered quietly...
The Smoky Quartz examined the freshly painted Volture
"After we arrived, its your call"
It was Chip's "mission" after all
"I guess you want this shard of yours "alive"... or at least intact. And if there is a scientist, that Gem too, to ehm... question her about her work on the part of your gem. Or the plan is to destroy everything 1000 miles radius? Im okay with that..."
The smoky Quartz reassured his young apprentice
"By the way Chip, o you have any other requests? I know you..."
Like do not hurt this and that, spare this or this, or have mercy on that and stuff like that
"Anyhow, If you want, we could bring a human team along, as a backup. Armed human quartzes and rubies..."

"That shard is still a part of me... so please, do not damage it... I have still some plans for it. Let's keep the blasting everything into oblivion as plan B, ok? And I am pretty sure you could use information provided by this hypothetical scientist, so let's try to not just shatter everyone... if possible..."
He said, but was pretty sure, that there will be no sentient gem there, possibly few corrupted ones, and possibly some kind of traps... "Any other requests? Well if that hypothetical scientist will have some lab animals like pandas or koalas let's save those too... or cats... or lizards... or perhaps snakes? No... I don't like snakes... oh and cacti... let's try avoid destroying cacti..."
He was trying to lightened up the mood a little...
"I think it would be better to go alone... humans could get harmed or killed... plus they would have to get there somehow... and then all this painting would be for nothing..."
He said. It was really difficult to speak with a beak...
"To be honest my dear boy, I am not so sure, that shard is still te part of you"
The Smoky Quartz admited after a little hesitation
"I mean, while you were chipped, your gem missed the shards, they had a place to go back. But now? They do not. It is quite possible, after your gem healed, every connection was separated with you and your sards and they are now seperate entities. That would explain their developed intelligence... I mean, your shards once were the part of a larger Gem-matrix, your "mind". After the accident, they inherited the part of the code... but we are Gems. We adapt. It is possible, that code-frement "regenerated" in to a new mind... "
The Assassin mused
"Tho' this is just my theory... without any proof or evidance. I don't know which is the worse, a Gem expeimenting on your shard, or their developed mind-theory of mine"
Post by Chip the Fire Opal on Jan 14, 2017 13:46:41 GMT
"Then it was a part of me... no difference there. I need to get all the shards. When I heal them I could ask them... possibly... or I will create some sort of evil monster... but we will see how that goes when it happens. Right now we have shard to collect... "
He said. Perhaps the shards were no longer parts of him since he got healed... but that wasn't important right now. Right now he was getting angry about talking as much as a vulture...
"Could we go, please? Speaking as vulture is... annoying to say the least."
He said and then jump in the air and started flying around the room... bumping into walls, since there wasn't enough space.
The Smoky Quartz agreed "The sky is waiting... Chip, my boy, spare the walls please. Use the window."
Morion asked calmly
"Now... I think you are a bit out of practice from the whole shape shifting and "be another thing instead what you used to know" business. We will work on that. For a whole week you have to be a rock, to understand it. Then a tree. After that, lets work our way up in the chain... "
The Assassin explained
"The truth of the world can be found sitting at the riverside, The river never begins, the river never ends. All of life is like the river, lessons never begin and lessons never end
Post by Chip the Fire Opal on Jan 14, 2017 15:39:03 GMT
"Are you kidding? This is my top transforming form! I was never able to shape shift this well. I mean... I am a vulture right now. I can fly... I could eat a dead man whole if I wanted... not that I ever would. And being a rock for a week sounds like terrible waste of time... and so boring... rock can't talk, can't fly... "
He said while fighting with the window. It wasn't easy to open window when you were a vulture... he succeeded after some time and turn to Morion once more. "Actually river begins and ends... usually in confluence with another river... or it goes into the sea... "
He flew from the window but just kept flying in circles... he had no idea which way it was...
"Eventually you will learn to accept the Way of the Rock..."
He shook his head
"...and you will see the wisdom in it! The wind moves with such subtlety, you do not even notice your own breathing. Be aware. Only a fool knows the wind is empty. The Earth is silent and still, a sleeping giant who does not wish to be disturbed. Only when you are in the grave will you have nothing more to learn."
The Smoky Quartz promised "But enough philosophy..."
He nodded "Lets fly!"
The Smoky Quartz shapeshifted to a raven, spread his wings and led the way Long long long hours of flying to the canyons But then passed the leadership to his young apprentice, the painted Fire Opal Volture^^ After all, this was Chip's mission
Post by Chip the Fire Opal on Jan 14, 2017 20:55:07 GMT
"I guess we will see... since I am a gem I should know how is it to be a rock... but there might be something more to it... I might try it, but not now... and not soon."
He said and followed Morion turned raven. Chip was good flyer, he was flying a LOT but on his own wings... those shape shifted wings were weird. He was feeling tired by the way they got close to the canyons. When he saw the red and yellow rocks he knew they are here. And he felt something weird... but right now, he was just a vulture, flying around.
He was flying in big circle, zeroing in on something... he certainly felt something weird, he was drawn to it... but he didn't see anything... whatever was there it was hidden... something deep in the canyons... he was getting a little lower, but still nothing... yes, there were injectors, since this place used to be a kindergarden, but nothing else... strange...
"Do you see something weird?"
He asked Morion, who was hopefully still flying next to him...
The smoky grey bird, with the morion on his chest landed on a rock and looked around Red and orange rocks, green cacti, some dry bushes The area wasn't lifless Of course, the smoky quartz was well aware, deserts are alway full of life, and not barren wastelands most of the people thinks... But it wasn't what the Assassin expected After all, this was a Kindergarten, tho' a little one.... but still, a Kindergarten He watched silently the Injectors, the rocks, the whole thing
"I think this Kindergarten was offline for a long long time kid . Long enough for the Planet to heal. Look around! The cacti, the voltures, the little rodents, insects and the vegetation that lives in the shadows, under the rocks... this area is "alive". Not like the Kindergarten where you emerged."
It was important Just Morion didn't know, why? "Do you see something weird Chip? Or feel anything?"
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
