"Actually I am quite capable and willing to see things from other point of views. you know it was part of my job; as an infiltrator, I had to understand and accept the target's life and belifes, to replace them..."
The Smoky Quartz nodded Then after the fight, he picked one of those strange fused... things, to examine It was deffinitly several shards "glued" or rather "welded" together It was disturbing... more so to Morion "I... saw something like this before. My beloved Demetry was... he was an experiment too. His Gem was actuall two Gem or possibly more, molded together to form a new Gem. His Gem was a beautiful caleidoscope of wonders... and he was noble and strong, hot headed fiery, full of passion, full of fire..."
He shook his head with a heavy heart
"But his Gem was a masterpiece! Not this crude... disgusting abomination..."
Morion bubbled the one in his hand, and sant it away

Chip dropped the topic of Star wars, since it would lead to another arguing, probably. Or perhaps not, but he wasn't going to risk it. Right now, they had more important things to do. He listened to a story about Morion's former partner, who disappeared all that time ago. She was apparently more gems in one too... "Perhaps this was some crude experiment that was trying to replicate her? Though this feels more like a gem drone then a normal gem. But who could've done something crazy like this?"
Chip started to have a really bad feeling about this. There was one thing he was really dreading... but he hoped he was wrong...
"If we meet whoever done this... "
Chip was getting angry... and when he got angry, he was getting just a wee bit fiery...
The Smoky Quartz corrected the young Fire Opal "Demetry preferred the male humanoid form, tho' he was a bit feminin... "
"To be honest, I doubt, this is an atempt to replicate his creation. It is more like an atempt to make some sort of a "super shard soldier". It is clearly a faliure. Even Project: Lazarus was a greater success than this... thing"
"The corpse monsters were at least scary... but these abominations are weak and disturbing, nothing more! Waste of precious resources! Not to mention Gems... even if these shards were Crstal Gems once, their Gem could have been a power source, insted now shattered and used to make these...things."
Morion shook his head with a sigh
"Kid.. I think the Gem or Human who is responsible for is... used your shard too. And it is out there somewhere, stalking the corridors like these monsters.
Post by Chip the Fire Opal on Jan 18, 2017 5:17:56 GMT
"Oh yeah, "he"... sorry."
He was still thinking too much like a human.
"Perhaps this is just a byproduct of some other, greater experiment? Or perhaps it is just failed experiment... and keeping those misshapen things was easier then wiping them out? "
And it kinda worked, since they were talking here, instead of going further... so those bad guards were actually delaying them, even when they were already bubbled. Morion confirmed his theory... which was really disturbing... "I'm afraid of that too... in that case perhaps the shard was yelling for help in the only way it could. With it's "thoughts" being corrupted by the other shards..."
Thinking about it, he was getting angrier and angrier...
"I will find the one who done this... "
He was interrupted by other gem monsters coming down the corridor. He just blasted the entire corridor with fire, poofing those monsters... they were weak. Then Chip just ran down the hallway, prepared to blast anything that will try to stop him...
"Nooo... no... I don't think so kiddo. Keeping these around was "easier"? I higly doubt that. It was clear during the fight, they are lack of any real intelligence, they were fighting with some primal instinct, not strategy, or any regard of their safety. Poofing them was easy... while controlling them I think almost impossible, more so than a regular shard drone. These things are clearly failed experiments... building a stone wal could have been a bigger deffense than these abominations..."
But Morion nodded
"Yes, that is possible, your shard cried for help... But if somebody tried to "fuse" your shard with other shards, I dobut we can "save" it. But who know... We will examine these strange shard things and find answers... but now, lets find the Gem or Human responsible for this... I have the nasty feeling, there is a human behind all this... or a really insane Gem"

"Well, so let them try and stop THIS!"
Chip was too angry to continue with the conversation. His inner flame took control and wanted to destroy everything. He run through the corridor, blasting away some sort of door that were before them. Some other gem monsters stood in his way, but he swept them away, like they were nothing. Some sort of wall mounted weapon started shooting at him, but he just blast it with more fire, melting it away... another door were blocking his way, this time stronger ones. He begin to shoot stronger and stronger fire on them... he was expanding a lot of energy... and he didn't even noticed, that he got hit by that wall mounted gun. The door were resisting, even though few outer layers already melted...
"The road of revenge leads straight to the sun, hanging on the horizon. There are no wayside inns to give the traveller rest, there are no detours, byways or deviations. It is a long, bloody path that can only end in a grave..."
The Smoky Quartz murmured But followed his young Fire Opal apprentice and his path of destruction, helping him along the way some precise trhust of te scimitar He was no way that drestuctive as Chip with his fire powers, but what the Smoky Quartz lacked in raw power, compensated with agility and knowledge Not to mention swiftness and deadlyness
"When all you have is a hammer, everything starts looking like a nail..."
Morion frowned a bit The kid was too... reckless. But he can't stop him... just watched as Chip burned himself out.
Post by Chip the Fire Opal on Jan 19, 2017 16:43:55 GMT
Chip didn't really listen to Morion, since he was just another nail at this moment... Chip certainly didn't see like he was getting burnedd out anytime soon. He was actually slowly burning through the door... the outer layers were gone and the core was getting dangerously thin... then the fire just blasted through, poofing several monster, that were behind the doors...
Then he rested against the wall. He never used so much fire before. But now he was at least thinking clearly. He just now discovered, that he was injured.
"Well... the door is opened..."
He gasped, still trying to catch his breath. It was quite foolish to act like that... but once he was on fire he had to blast something...
The Smoky Quartz asked calmly, and casually stabbet two monsters, that tired to attack the exhausted Fire Opal Then bubbled and sent away their shard
"It was effective tho'... but it was quite foolish to act like that kiddo! But I hoped your anger and furry are both burnt away... and now you can think clearly and ratianlly! Please don't do something like this again!"
His mentor asked politely from Chip "I don't want to see you poofed from exhaustion... I can protect you from the monsters, but I can't protect you from yourself Chip!"
Morion helped up the kid, and checked his wound
"Energy blast, several... but your form seems stabile enough... Anyhow, try to avoid those cannons

"Yeah, I think I'm quite finished..."
He said. His energy was replenishing quite fast, but the injury bothered him. Unfortunately he could only heal damaged gems, not projected bodies.
"You know, that when I get angry I can't control myself. The fire is stronger then me. Once the forest fire start, you can't stop it... you have to let it burn itself down... but don't worry, I am not so exhausted yet. Don't forget, that I'm an eternal flame!"
He said, though he sounded tired.
"I feel my shard... it's close... I think we should finish this. And whoever is running those experiments... let's just say that I might forget that I don't like violence... "
He wasn't all that angry now, fortunately, but he was still feeling uneasy about that
Post by Chip the Fire Opal on Jan 20, 2017 7:44:02 GMT
"No, I don't think I could heal that... I can still heal only cracked and damaged gems... not the damage of our projections... this will slow me down a little... and I need more energy to project my body... but otherwise I'm fine. I won't turn back now, when we are so close..."
He was determined to continue and finish this. He also didn't agree with the "everything freezes", but didn't comment on it. Then again he didn't know much about how energy works and that there's finite amount of it in the entire universe...
"The fire is part of me... I won't forget about what happened... it happened and it might as well happens again some day... and if anyone want and try to exploit this "weakness" they might not like the result... "
Granted, he had troubles controlling himself when enraged, but he got a lot stronger because of it... or perhaps he just didn't hold back as usual?
"You can't heal yourself... that is unfortunate. Strange combination of powers, but I guess it is reflecting the dual nature of fire; it gives warmth, life yet it could be destructive, uncontrollable and deadly. Fitting for an unique elite Gem that was possibly made for White Diamond or even was designed by Her Majesty herself..."
The Smoky Quartz mused
"I tink you are right, never forget what happened, it not might, it WILL happens again some day... or sooner than you expect. In a sense, this enraged state of yours a bit reminds me of Bloodstone's "Berserker mindset". Maybe this is his bad influance on you... maybe your naural state of mind is more... fiery. Maybe you are stronger than you thinks, and only holding back subconciosuly, to mimic him... or avoid the truth, you are an elite Gem"
Post by Chip the Fire Opal on Jan 20, 2017 9:00:27 GMT
"Yeah... fire saves lives... but it also could take them. But my healing powers are... not refined yet. I need to hold a "poofed" gem to heal it. But since there aren't cracked poofed gems around I have very little time to practice... and... well... actually I think I was made for Pink Diamond..."
So, you finally accepted that? Finally! That's a step to the right direction!
Chip ignored the voice completely.
"I was with Bloodstone ONCE without you. And I spent half of that time poofed... There is no bad influence. I mean yeah, I consider him a friend, but it's not like we are meeting behind your back where he would try to influence me with his "bad influence"..."
Though it was quite possible, that he was holding back a lot. He really despised violence... though not as much as he used to...
"Not refined... I see. Hmm... strange. But I will get you some cracked and poofed Gems, if thats all you need to practice..."
There are plenty of Rebels and Independents around, waiting to be craced and poofed^^
"Whoa kiddo, this is a new one! Why do you think, you were made for Her Majesty, the gentle and caring Pink Diamond? But it is nice to hear, you finnaly accepted the fact, you were made for a Diamond, and you are not just an accident or mistake! But I still thinks you were made for Her Majesty White Diamond, to be the part of her Elite Court... after all, you are a bit like a cross between a Healer and a Fighter... strange, but not unusall combination. Rose Quartzes are Quartz soldiers, and most of them have some sort of healing powers too... defenders tho', not vanguards... but you... well, who know, maybe you are right...."
It was easy to immagine Chip as a Pink Court member
"Take my advice Chipy, and keep your distance from Bloodstone untill he finally make up his mind... and decide he wants to die or live"
Melody: as usual, just waiting for posts

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
