"Yeah, I really don't want other gems getting hurt just so I can become a better healer... if you just happen to have some cracked gems in your inventory then sure, I will heal them... but don't go hurting other gems. Not to mention I can heal just one gem before I get drained far more, then I am right now..."
He explained. He really didn't want Morion going around, poofing gems and then cracking them...
"I think I am... begging to remember. Some things... not much, but I think I was suppose to serve Pink Diamond... I have no idea what purpose I should've had but... yeah, that's what I believe..."
Oh, so you "remembered". Clever... "Yeah, well you should stop me from talking to Carbide... "
By then they finally arrived before a door that looked as strong as the last one... and his shard was behind them... he knew it... but he wasn't sure if he can burn through them right now... and before he could do anything else another canon activated above them...
The Smoky Quartz nodded "Okay kiddo, if this is your wish... I will not going to hunt, capture, crack and poof Gems just for you to practice your healing powers; I give you my word"
"It is nice tho' you starting to remember..."
Not to mention, the whole remembering thing (well if it was true, naturally) was the proof of Morion's theory about the young Fire Opal's true self But then the Assassi nfrowned
"Bah... Carbide! Our relationship is shaky at best! I consider her as a vallued ally... she sees me as a tool or possible enemy, I am not a fool kid, I am well aware, Carbide just tried to use me and my resurces to further her "independent" goals. Truth to be told, if she wouldn't Her Majesty's, White Diamond's Grand Inquisitor, his excellency, the exalted Opalite's friend and companion... I would have shattered her long ago, for her actions! But I am I guess a bit sentimental, and part of me wish Carbide to see the light and re-join to our side"
Morion admited, then shook his head
"I will not stop, nor prevent you from talking Carbide. You are a big, adult Gem, and I am not your slave master... do what you wish Chip, I have faith in you and your wisdom"
Then he watched the canon "This is mine..."
With a swift move, the Smoky Quartz sliced down the canon with his scimitar, then picked up, like a big gun
"I wonder if this thing have its own power source... anyhow, a step closer to strenghten our deffneses in Empire City!"

So they stood before door... Morion confiscated the canon, which was nice. Perhaps Chip shouldn't blast the first one... "Ok... thanks for not poofing anyone... and also for trusting me enough to do what I want, meeting who I want... and also for getting rid of the canon before it could shoot me..."
He said. He pushed towards the door, but with no effect.
"I guess I could get us in... but I will burn the rest of my energy... I have no other idea how to get in. So unless you have better idea I can open the door, but you will have to get everyone inside, without destroying my shard..."
He said. But perhaps Morion had some way to open the door without blasting through them...
Trust is a funny thing You could loose easly, but pretty hard to earn The bright side, if sombody loose the Smoky Quartz's trust, it is impossible to earn it back, so one could save a lot of time accepting that, and freely climb in to his or her grave
"Yes... I have no doubts you could blast this door too to smithereens. But let's save your strenght for a possible fight. I'm sure it is closed from inside. But there are other ways around.
Morion removed the panel that usualy opened the door with a touch, and started to hotwire it
"A little luck, we could open this thing... without electrocuting myself. Or triggering another door. Or trap. If its not working, then we could always blast it

Chip just nodded. It was much wiser to let Morion try his technical kung-fu. After all he had wasted most of his power on doors... and if there was some crazy gem inside, he needed to be ready to fight. Not that Morion couldn't handle it alone... but it was always safer to have a backup.
Plus Chip really wanted to get his shard undamaged. If it was really merged with others he will free it even if he had to cut it from the others...
"Any luck so far?"
He asked after few minutes. He knew it could take a while, but every single moment they were waiting he was loosing power and also the crazy bastard could think of something to stop them...
Morion put his hand on the circuits, and his hand started to glow, just like when a Gem reforms, or shape shifts; but this time the projected energy entered in the Gem system, and re-configured it The door opened before the young Fire Opal
"Be careful kiddo..."
The Smoky Quartz pulled out his hand
"...only the Diamonds know, what kind of horrors are lurking behind this door... let's hide..."
Morion started to emmit smoke, and filled the corridor whit gray, fog like smoke; he had no problem navigating in it... actually it was easy, since he knew the layout of the complex "Follow me Chip... and prepare your lance! Be careful, we want it "alive"
Post by Chip the Fire Opal on Jan 20, 2017 20:11:30 GMT
The door finally opened, thanks to Morion's skill. It opened in some kind of lab with old gem machinery. Chip had absolutely no idea what it is for, since he's never seen anything like that... he also did't exactly saw much, since the smoke was quite heavy.
There were also like 10 more gem monsters... one of them had to the one with Chip's shard. There was someone else too, probably the insane mastermind behind this entire mess. The monsters were closing to the entrance, prepared to attack... not that their attack were so impressive in the last encounters... they didn't even have time to attack... suddenly all of them ran into the smoke, grasping with their many hands, trying to catch something...
The Smoky Quartz prepared to fight! When the first monster dissaperad in the fog like smoke, a qucik thrust of the scimitar poffed it swiftly and silently And the old saying "where is smoke, there is fire" was true in this particiluar sitoation also After another quivk thrust and slice the assassin retreated, giving the youg Fire Opal the chance to blast the monsters in to oblivion
"Can you feel yourt Shard Chip? Be careful... I don't know which one is it!"
Morion reminded his young apprentice He was there to help.. but it was pretty limited what Morion could do, since only Chip could sense his own Shard
"I will try not to shatter anyting..."
But it was too risky for him to do anything else, except attacking the mastermind behind this insanity

Chip wasn't going to use fire, he didn't want to damage his shard... even though his shard should easily survive the heat. For some time at least. Instead he just stabbed one monster with lance, poofing it. Those ones were stronger though. Suddenly one monster grabbed the lance and threw Chip inside the room. There wasn't enough space to fly, so Chip just slowed his fall with wings, still... it wasn't exactly pleasant. "Get them, my babies! Tear them apart! We need more shards!"
They could hear a voice yelling. A gem of small stature appeared from behind some machine. It was a peridot gem, but she was wearing some kind of crude metal armour. She didn't seem completely rational...
Chip had enough work with two monsters, that pinned him down. He blasted one of them with fire, because he had few options and he struggled with the second. He knew for some reason, that this one is THE one he was looking for. It might explain why it was so strong...
The Smoky Quartz shapeshifted in to a huge, black snake, and slithered silently in the chaos of the battle, the smoke filled room Strong coils grabbed a monster from the smoke, and squeezed it untill it poofed, then moved to the next one The silver eyes watched his young apprentice's battle with the shard - thing. Chip's oppontent was strong, but that was somewhat expected; after all, it was the young Fire Opal's Shard, and the kid was a powerhouse! But it was Chip's fight, so the massive, smoke grey reptile turned his attention to the insane Peridot It was tempting to grab it, and crush her... but a promise was a promise So Morion slithered silently and picking the monsters out one by one, dragging his victims to the fog like smoke...

Chip was still struggling with the monster. It had like 5 arms, which game it the advantage. Chip could barely move when grabbed by the monster. One of it's actually grabbed his gem, trying to pull it out from him. Unfortunately for the monster, Chip hated when anyone was touching his gem... he blasted the monster with fire, throwing it across the room. He ran towards it, and also shot a wave of fire toward the peridot, just by the way. He threw her closer to Morion, but otherwise she remained unharmed (physically, mentally she was probably harmed more then once...)
Suddenly the monster opened one big eye... and started shooting fire from it?! Chip summon lance and shot fire right back, locking themselves in... fire fight?
The Smoky Quartz watched his young apprentice; the teen Fire Opal clearly had troubles with his opponent Their battle was edducational, and Morion was first and foremost an Eye Her Eye A Watcher... he watched Gems, Courts, idividuals and civilizations... watched, learned, reported ...and became Her Wrath The smoke gray serpend watched with silver eyes Chip, as he battled with the abomination. The "Gem" was strong, wich was understandable, considering a part of it was the kid's Shard The blast was a smart move, the snake grabbed the armored Peridot, and warped his scally moscular body around her; coils after coils, like an Anaconda The Peridots were very very durable Gems, but it was a matter of time... but Morion didn't wanted to poof her That was Chip's priviliage His Mentor just trapped the Peridot so she coulnd't escape

The room was getting hotter... that happens when two gems were blasting each other. Chip was stronger, but he was also tired and this could go for a long time. Instead Chip sprung his wings, and jumped through the fire, stabbing the abomination through the eye, poofing it instantly... he picked up the gem...
"No...I think I have everything in hand..."
He checked the gem. His shard was the bigger part of this ... cluster. There was just one attached to it... it was sky blue. It was over... all the abominations were poofed and snake Morion had the peridot wrapped. Chip thought he will be angry... and he most likely would be if he wasn't so tired and damaged by canon and fire... he came closer to the peridot.
"Why?! Why do you have to torment me... trying to shatter me... then making this... abomination from my shard... "
He pointed the lance on the peridot. She was squeezed too much to by able to speak. He really wanted to just stab her... but he also couldn't... he glanced at Morion...
"Your stlye is unique my boy... it was really acrobatic, intense fight! Tho' I think you still need a little practice. You know, to smoothen the rough edges... so to speak"
The snake nodded
"Oh... this one is yours!"
The smoky quartz relesed the armored Peridot from his grasp, then slithered away, shapeshifted back to his humanoid form It was his Apprentice's mission after all, he was only there to help But truth to be told, the young Fire Opal was completly capable to handle such things Morion was just the not really needed support^^ So he stepped back, picking up the salvaged canon and let the kid talk and pass judgement He was too curious tho' what was the point of these experiments...
Post by Chip the Fire Opal on Jan 21, 2017 20:05:04 GMT
Chip was staring at the peridot. For so long he blamed peridots for everything... he thought that he will poof every single one he will meet. And he never met one before... until now. He was fighting with himself... part of him wanted to shatter her completely... and another part of him wanted to just go away, letting Morion handle this...
And then Morion released her. The peridot just looked at Chip and smirked... but the smirk froze on her face. Before Chip realised what he was doing he stabbed her. He couldn't stand looking at that smirk... too many terrible feeling went bubbling to the surface. He blasted fire through the stabbed peridot, something not even tough gem as peridot could withstand... her gem fell to the ground...
Chip quickly let his lance disappear. He was shocked he done this... and he was afraid that he could shatter the gem, if the look at it for another second. He turned his head... saying nothing...
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
