Ice was frustrated, and as he continued to try, his cheeks lit up with dark blue. He paused for a moment to listen to Chip's advice, still doubtful that it was possible for him. He replied with an unsure, "okay..." Before returning to his task.
He calmed himself down for a moment, slowly becoming less flustered by inhaling and exhaling. He carefully placed the apple in the very centre of his palm, precisely adjusting it afterwards. He took one large breath, and cautiously approached the apple with his other hand. He got closer and closer... until... he hit the apple and it fell from his hand... He looked at it for a few seconds, just sitting right at his foot.
After staring at it for long enough, he reached down and picked it up, tripping over his own foot and falling into the ground yet again, he heard a weird noise as he fell, but thought nothing of it. He lied there, defeated, for a few seconds, before he realised something. The apple was gone.
He put a few things together in his head, wondering if what he thought happened, had actually happened. He looked over at Chip who'd seen the entire spectacle "Did I just?..."

It was really interesting, watching Ice doing his best. He was taking his sweet time though, but Chip was patient. Ice was doing a lot of unnecessary rituals, like putting the apple on the dead center of his palm, breathing to calm down... but if it helped him... like humans were saying - whatever fan his boat.
And it WORKED! Well kinda... he fell, which wasn't really all that glorious, but he did bubble it and even sent it... somewhere.
"YES! You did it! Neat! I knew you could do it! And you sent it "home"... I have no idea where that is for you, but the apple is right there."
He got it so fast.
"I told you, that you could do it. And it took you only short time. Now you can bubble everything you need..."
The waterworks started immediately, just kidding, not really. Ice's tears of joy actually just stuck to his face frozen in place under his eyes. He felt so... triumphant, like someone who'd just achieved their life goal. The apple was indeed gone, and it was all his doing. He could actually bubble stuff.
The apple had gone home? Ice wasn't exactly sure where home was for him, for all he knew the apple could have gone all the way back to his work site on the northern region of the planet. It probably wasn't best for him to bubble anything else until he actually found out where it went, but that didn't matter. All that mattered was that he could do it, and he had to thank Chip for it, he wouldn't even know the power existed without him. "Thank you so much, I didn't even think I could do it, but it was all like phwoom!and it just disappeared, just like that!" There was excitement in his eyes, and he couldn't help but feel overjoyed by the whole incident. "I couldn't have done that without your help, so really, I mean it." He felt a little guilty, Chip was always helping him so much, but he'd never really done anything to pay him back, he wasn't even sure there was anything he could do to pay him back.
It didn't really help much, when Chip told him not to mention it, it only made him feel like Chip deserved something in return even more. But still, he had nothing to repay him with.
Ice never really considered staying in the city. He didn't like the idea of staying so close to humans, but he would probably be fine as long as he was careful, and the tower place that Chip was talking about had a good chance of being a safe spot. He wasn't ready to make up his mind, not just yet, but he was interested in meeting this mentor guy that Chip had mentioned. Ice heard Chip talk about him a few times, and he sounded like a pretty good guy. How could he not be, if he mentored Chip.
"I don't really know, I came to visit, but it sounds like having a nice safe spot to go when it gets dark and stuff might not be a bad idea." He figured the best thing to do was check the tower out, who knows what he'd find inside, maybe they'd even have a warp pad and other gem stuff. "Can I come see, this M tower spot, would that be okay? And then maybe while I'm there I could even meet your mentor" It might have been a lot to ask, Ice wasn't sure, he just knew that someday he'd find a way to pay Chip back.

It seemed that Ice was actually thinking about it. But... the one thing he was a little afraid was him meeting Morion. After all Morion could be a little intense... but perhaps it could work just fine... possibly? After all Morion wanted to meet Chip's friend.
"Oh, do you see that biggest tower in the entire city? That's the M Tower... and I have an entire level just for myself... and... I actually thin we can go there right now... Morion might even be there... and... uhm... I guess we can see him if you want?"
He said. He was a little nervous about that. But... Ice was Blue Diamond's gem... so was Morion. So what could possibly go wrong...
The M Tower. Ice thought he could see it from where he was standing, in fact, someone would probably be able to see it from miles away, it was really tall. To think, Chip had a whole level all to himself in that huge building, it made sense though, if he was the apprentice to the guy who owned the place.
"We can go now? okay then, onward to M Tower!" Ice pointed toward the building excitedly as he yelled in a voice that was much louder than it needed to be.
Chip almost seemed worried about something, it was weird, what was there to be worried about... Ice wondered if it was the mentor person, no matter, cause he was going to be on his best behaviour to make sure Chip didn't need to worry about anything. Besides, Ice was as smooth as... ice! The only problem is that ice cracks easily.

Chip nodded and lead Ice to the tower. It wasn't really that far, but far enough for Ice to experience the crazy atmosphere in the city. A whole lot of cars, even more people... Chip wasn't exactly used to walk here... he usually just flew over them... but quite soon they arrived to the M tower. He opened the main entrance and let Ice in. In that moment two human quartzes came checking up what was going on.
"Oh, he is with me... he's a friend..."
Humans just nodded, following by words like "As you say young master".
"Let's check, if Morion is at home."
He said and lead Ice to one of the many elevators.
"Let's hop in, it will take us to the higher level..."
The security was tight (the usual thugs in shades and suits, headsets, patrolling in pairs) and chip could see the not-so-hidden cameras watching the corridors The guards were armed... columbian and Jamaican thugs, but the humans smiled to the little Gem To them Fire Opal was just like their boss, Senor M Some of them just nodded, some of them greeted him as he walked by with his new friend At the top, they arrived to Moiron's "lair" The butler greeted the young Gems as they stepped out the elevator
"Good evening master Chip..."
Moiron called it his Pearl, but the Butler had a name, he was James, the Pearl. After a bow, he led Chip to his master The Smoky Quartz was in one of the living rooms
The Gem was there, siting behind a harpsichord, playing
The assassin wasn't in his usual black uniform with his mask; He was a tall ('Quartz tall^^) Gem (but not bulky like a Jasper or Amethyst, his kind was slender) with long grey hair and silver eyes, his skin tone was a bit grey...ish, like the smoke, but he could pass as a caucasian man
With half-naked (his black gemstone was in the middle of his chest), only in a black, silk pants, he was sitting there, playing with closed eyes. The butler left the two Gems alone The Smoky Quartz smiled, but not opened his eyes "Good evening Chip... can I help you? Who is your friend?"
After he finished the song, the Quartz turned to the two Gems, while the butler returned and helped his master to dress up He wore human clothes, - black silk suit - Italian with maching shoes - shirt, tie and cane. - it wasn't his projection, since the shirt and vest hided his Gem. Resting on his cane, Morion watched the new Gem, with curiosity
Humans, so many humans. Ice felt uncomfortable, he didn't like being near them because he didn't know what would happen if one accidentally touched him. He had no control over his body's odd freezing ability, it just drastically cooled anything that touched him. Gems could tolerate it, but there was no telling what would happen to an earth organism, they had so much water in them that it would definitely damage them, and possibly even kill them. He just stayed calm and alert, as much as he could, that way he could get out of the way if they got too close.
The people weren't normal either, they were dressed weird, they looked scarier than people normally looked. But that was the least of his worries now, they were headed up an elevating mechanism, and Ice couldn't help but gulp as he heard it go up. Another human brought them to a room, where he'd probably find Chip's mentor, he remembered Chip calling him Morion.
He was in there all right, and he was honestly a little intimidating. He was a tall gem, although a little skinnier than most of the warrior gems he'd seen, nonetheless, the whole aura of the room had Ice on edge. This was the guy who supposedly owned all of it, and that probably meant he was very powerful. The person brought him what appeared to be human clothes, and Ice was surprised to find that he actually put them on. He'd never seen a gem use human clothing before. Ice staying completely quiet and still as the tall gem seemed to just analyse him.
Terraformer? Columbia? He wasn't really a terraformer, but he did spend most of his time helping them, so he figured it was basically true. He was completely lost as to what Columbia was though. Throughout the whole time, Ice just remained silent, he was determined to not make any mistakes.

Chip lead Ice through the M tower. For him all of this was pretty normal, but he could see how it might confuse Ice a little. Sebastian lead them into Morion's chambers. Chip always thought that this room looked very... ancient. Like it was from the Titanic... like something that one could see in European castles.
"Hey, allow me to make the introductions. This..."
He pointed at Morion. "Is her Majesty the Blue Diamond's wrath, lord protector of Empire city, the Smokey Quartz Morion himself... he is also my mentor and friend."
He tried to sound properly important when he was saying it.
"And this is my good friend Ice, who wished to see you. He came to Empire city, because I invited him... I hope you don't have any problems with it..."
"We will going to practice this Chip... but you got it almost right! B- "
The Smoky Quartz nodded with a little smile, while the butler brought him a little box, with some jewels inside; he picked a tie pin, actually more like a brooch that looked like the Blue Diamond insignia and put it on, then turned to the new Gem
"I'm afraid we haven't had the pleasure to meet before... let me intorduce myself! I am a Smoky Quartz, from the Morion variant - Facet-7F2R Cut-8YQ; Her Majesty's Blue Diamond's loyal servant, I AM her eye... I am her Wrath! Currently lended for a few missions to Her Majesty, White Diamond... you can say, I'm a licensed hunter, assassin of our Matriarchs"
Morion bowed his head a little; tried to be friendly since Chip told him, Ice wasn't the bravest Gem
"...and I am now the Gem Lord and protector of Empire City. Welcome to my Domain little one"
He did the Diamond salute
"Please take a seat and tell me about yourself..."
The butler poured a glass of whiskey for his Master, served Chip a bowl of cookies, then if Ice didn't asked anything, left
An assassin... of course he was an assassin... Something about that word just seemed to freak Ice out a little. A gem made for killing, it really was just a variation of a warrior, but the word assassin still seemed to linger in his head. He gave his facet, cut, and then finished with a diamond salute, all exactly to the book, it was actually impressive. He was nervous, one could tell by how he was shivering, and now he felt pressured to do a good job on his own introduction. He sat down in the chair and started just as Smokey Quartz had requested.
"Umm...," He breathed in and out quickly and looked over to Chip, calming himself down so that he could continue. "I'm Ice, and I also work under Blue Diamond." His eyes were now facing Morion "I was sent to Earth a few years ago to help find a use for the frozen lands, but..." Ice didn't enjoy thinking about that night, but continued to give necessary details. "I stayed out a little too late... and the warp pads broke... and I got stuck in an iceberg..." He didn't give enough information, but hopefully it would suffice. "If it wasn't for Chip here, I'd still be stuck in that iceberg" He didn't think he did a great job at speaking, but shook the thoughts away, he was probably overthinking everything too much.

Chip was just standing around, smiling, listening. He almost forgot HOW exactly could Morion be scary. But it was apparent Ice was a little worried. But Chip was trying to stand close to Ice to give him some courage. Fortunately it seemed, that Ice was able to tell his story. He got to the part, when Chip rescued him from the ice... "Ice is exaggerating a little. I just helped him get from the ice... if I weren't here the sun would melt it... or some other gem would come by.. I was just there first. But I offered Ice he could stay here... with us..."
He looked at Morion with a certain look. After all, finding a lost, defenceless gem... and helping him... it was the same thing that Morion did for Chip. And Chip wanted to help other gems too.

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
