"Sorry "Ice" I missed the part when you told me your Gem type and your Facet and Cout..."
The Smoky Quartz smiled politely Then listened the little story "Yes, my dear boy Chip told me, you are a terraformer. A usefull Gem, who could be a great help... and I am sure, my Apprentice was a real hero; he is like that, brave and strong! Pink Diamond will be proud once she accpet him in to her Court."
"You were lucky tho"... there are plenty of insane Gems with ill intentions, like Lady Obsidian, a crazy scientist, who just looove to torture and experiment on captive Gems or Yellow Peridot, Yellow Diamond's insane, batshit crazy "warrior Peridot" experiment... or Sulfur, a Dream-walker abomination, and the list is going on and on... not to mention "Starlight Swan", a Rebel so called Hero or another Rebel, the Crimson death, Helitorpe, who blasted that nice little crater before my Spire.... yes, yes you were lucky my dear Ice, Chip was the one who found you! Don't worry, you are now with friends!
Ice had forgotten to tell Morion his facet and cut, although it was partially on purpose, he'd gotten it wrong a few times a long time ago, but he was confident that he knew it right now. "Oh, right, I'm an Ice, more of an engineer that works with terraformers, than an actual terraformer, facet-5L3L Cut-5CX." He always used to mess up the 5CX for 5GX, but he knew it now.
Turns out he was even luckier than he thought, that it was Chip who had found him. The sun would never have melted his iceberg fast enough to out speed his body freezing it, no matter what, he would've ended up staying there until a gem freed him or he washed back in to the water. As Morion listed all of the psycho gems, he got nervous, the thought that he was walking around while they were just out there on the loose sent a chill down his back. Obsidian, Yellow Peridot, Sulfur, and Heliotrope... the names were burned into his head, if he ever saw any of them, he would be sure to flee on sight... probably. Although his experience with 'fleeing' was honestly pretty terrible, he wasn't slow, he just wasn't fast either.

Chip sighed. Morion made him look like a saint, when he was just at the right time at right place, pure luck. Nothing more. He was going to say something, when he heard some silly name...
"Starlight Swan?! What the heck is that? It's like the silliest name I ever heard... "
It wasn't nice to mock someone's name, but this? It was on the same level as Big McLargeHuge or Cypher Raige. It was really hard to keep straight face when hearing it... but he quickly controlled himself, though it took a lot of strength.
"It's not so terrible though, right Ice? I'm sure you met a lot of nice gems too, haven't you?"
Chip surely met more nice gems then the evil one... there was Sulfur, sure... but he was the only one he's met who was really really insane...
"A Crystal Gem, a Quartz soldier in a summonable battle armor... this is her "Hero name". Starlight Swan. Naturally our dear "friend" Carbide know her, so when we met her, I had to spare that criminal..."
Morion frowned a bit Then looked slowly to the little Gem, his silver eyes narrowed
"No... my dear "Ice". I think you are are lying to us. There are no Ice Gem-type. Ice is water frozen into a solid state. Ice is NOT a gem. Nor sugar, or salt. A gemstone is a piece of mineral crystal which, in cut and polished form, is used to make jewelry or other adornments. In our case, it is our sub-sepcies. Like Quartz for example... fifteen millenia behind my back and I've never seen or heard about an "ice". You can't be one.. since if you were an ice crystal, you would melt at room temperature. Not to mention our gemstone is our "core"... and the ice formation's crystal lattice can't be used to store information, not to mention a whole personality..."
Morion leanded back, watched the little Gem
"I think you are a Sapphire, but your oracular abilites are not developed, if they were, you would have seen this conversation, and tried to avoid it ... you have just your cryokinetic powers. You could fool a younger, naive Gems, but not the old ones...!"
The Assassin warned his guest
"Then again, it is possible, you are not aware what or who you really are. It is possible, you are an experiment and all of your memories are lies. Uploaded information to see your reactions and behavior as an "Ice" and the other Gem's reaction to you. A social experiment, Earth is ideal place for such things. In that case I'm sorry. Truly."
Morion shook his head
"Anyhow, regardless your "species" or allegiance, you are Chip's friend and ward, and I trust completly in my Aprrentice's judgement... it is enough for me to welcome you in my domain and home as a honored guest and friend, potential ally and help you in every way if you ever need our help. Chip will show you your room if you want to stay with us....
Ice considered the thought for a moment, before looking down at his gemstone on the side of his ankle. There was no way it was a sapphire, it was so, cubic. Plus he'd actually met other Ices before, and he'd seen a sapphire not long ago. He was pretty sure sapphires only had one eye, and a much nicer looking gem. It was almost funny that Morion thought he was possibly some greater gem, and although it was a nice thought, it wasn't the case. An assassin probably wouldn't ever associate with his kind though, so it made sense for Morion to have never heard of him. Ice was a rather frail gemstone, he was below average as far as an Ice's strength could go, but a stronger Ice wouldn't be much different. They would never need an assassin to take out an Ice, their gems could be crushed with a foot. They would never have an assassin working anywhere even close to an Ice either, they always worked in terrible weather conditions and extreme temperatures, it was kind of his only real strength. He laughed nervously before letting the Morion know "Trust me, I'm an Ice, sure I wouldn't be a gemstone at room temperature, but that's just why I'm never at room temperature, I'm constantly frozen all the time," He sighed "All the time..."

Chip knew very little about gems, so he didn't find anything weird with Ice being an ice. Morion had some problem with it it seemed. It was just possible, that Morion never was stuck in a colder are for a longer time, so he didn't meet one before? Chip had no idea, but when Ice told him, that he was an ice, he had no reason to doubt it. And since he was his friend it didn't matter to him at all.
"I really don't believe Ice would lie to us... to me. "
He said. Once he chose someone as a friend he believed him! The same as he believed Morion, even though lying was a big part of his character.
"So, what do you think Ice, will you stay? There are several free rooms at my level, some are quite nice... and every single one of you could be yours."
"Well, maybe he is not liar... as I said, it is possible, his memories are false, fabricated false life. He thinks it's true. Maybe he was even the one who suggested the whole experiment... downloaded his memories shapeshifted and uploaded the new life. Who knows..."
And for his part, who cares?
"Be carefull my Apprentice! But as I said, I have complate confidance in you... and I trust your judgement. Experiment or a Sapphire in disgusie, I don't really care as long as you okay with him, he is a honored guest and a friend and we will protect him like any other Gem.
The Smoky Quartz nodded "But he is your responsibility Chip! Find him a room, share your level of the spire if you want with him... and keep him out of trouble"
"Call me kiddo if you need anything, but now I need to go... there are some projects requiring my attention. Ice"
Ice didn't need a lot of space, just a small spot to hide at night, and store his things. He had however, considered staying. As long as he remained free to come and go as he pleased, the offer looked great. "I... I think I'd like to stick around... if that's okay." He pictured the terrors that lurked outside, the psycho gems, rebels, and corrupted gems. Suddenly, the worry about freezing a human felt outranked. "It'd be nice to have a place to come to when it gets dark out and stuff. But I don't need a whole lot of room or anything, just somewhere small." Here Chip was, helping him again...
Morion still didn't seem to entirely believe what he'd said, but that was okay, it didn't seem to matter much. He gave consent for Chip to let Ice into the tower, but then appeared to have to go work on some project. Morion was intimidating, probably really strong, and pretty secretive, but it looked like he was going to be on his side, so it was going to be alright.

"Oh c'mon Ice, I invited you, Morion have no problem with it and I will be happy to have a friend around, so yeah, sure, it's perfectly ok. This place is huuuuuuuge and there are probably some places they won't let you in, but you will be free to come and go as you please."
He said while leading Ice to his level. He only really used the one room, rest of the rooms at this level were unused, but not empty.
"You can see that door over there? That's my room... and all those other rooms are unused at the moment. You can choose one and make it your own. Nobody will enter it without your knowledge or will."
He said. The only person who entered his room lately was Morion. And sometimes a human pearl to clean it up...
The place really was huge, Ice was almost worried that he'd get lost in it. But Chip did say he was free to come and go as he pleased, and that he'd have a whole room to himself, so it was going to be worth it. Especially at night when it got dark and he couldn't see. He couldn't go out at night anymore, not after hearing about all the terrors that lurked outside.
He carefully eyed up the doors to the rooms, quickly glancing over at Chip's when it was pointed out to him. He stopped in front of one, for no particular reason, and turned his head over to Chip while still standing directly in front of it. "Is it good if I take this one?" It was probably okay, Chip said he could choose any of the rooms after all, but he still felt like he should ask, just in case.
Post by Chip the Fire Opal on Feb 8, 2017 22:47:07 GMT
"Well yes, I told you that you can pick one... this is one of them so yes, you can take this one if you want. Check it out, and if you don't like it you can pick any of the others... but this side should have a really nice view on the city. Actually you can see a big icerink from the window."
"And if you'll miss something in your room we can get it somewhere... just ask. I mean my room was quite basic at the beginning... it was perfectly comfortable, but it missed few things... like a big TV..."
He said and opened the door for Ice.
"From now on this room shall be known as Ice's room! And nobody will enter it against his wishes!"
He said with fairly poorly imitated glorious voice.
Ice listened to Chip as he admired the room. It was so much space all to himself, he'd never had nearly this much to himself, not once in his life. The window gave him that same type of aerial view he had gotten from Chip flying him in the sky, making the city look much smaller, but still enormous. Chip said he could add stuff to the room, but the stuff he was going to add would likely be a bunch of seemingly meaningless items. He was also going to have to watch himself around the humans here, but it was going to be worth it, he could already feel it. The safety of the room was already wonderful thing.
He took in a great breath, then breathed it out, it was nice after all. Above everything else, he'd come quite a ways since he'd fallen into the water so long ago. He looked over at Chip, he did still have some paying back to do though, someday.

It seemed, that Ice liked his new room, probably.
"I will tell the humans, that you are me friend and guest here in M tower... if you ever need anything, just find one of the human and ask him for help. This place is really huge... and there is a lot of interesting places. You might even enjoy some of them, you never know..."
He told him. Chip usually visited the kitchen, there were always some cookies for him. He tried few other things, but he still loved cookies the best, not that he knew how they tasted, since he still haven't tried to shape-shift taste buds.
"Or you can simply visit my room, just knock on the door and I will answer."
He smiled. It was so nice having a friend around...
"So... unless you need anything, I will leave you with your new room?"
Ice smiled, he was still shivering, but he felt warm at heart. Luckily Chip was going to tell the humans about him, probably dodged a bullet for him there. No telling what could've happened, but it could've gotten out of control. The humans worried him, but they seemed to also be there as protection, it was weird for him, how much human culture there was in the tower, but it was also a nice breath of fresh air. He wondered about what else there was in the tower, but decided it might be best to explore that later after having explored this one room first.
He nodded at Chip "Okay! I'm going to check things out then, don't worry I'll be careful and I won't go anywhere new without coming to get you first." He felt like the least he could do was stay out of trouble. He walked over to the bed, dropping to the ground and rolling under it. It was nice and quiet, a tad dark, but perfect for how tired he was. It was time for a rest, and for the first time, he could do it without any worries.

Chip wanted to tell him a lot more, where he could change the temperature or how to call human pearl if he needed something, but he chose to tell him all of that later. After all Ice probably had a long way here... and possibly dangerous. Morion was overreacting, as always, but he was right about the potential dangers out there...
"Feel free to drop anytime. And yes, it would be probably wiser to call me before you get your own barrings, but don't worry about it."
With that, he just smiled and let Ice alone with his new room. Chip could use some rest as well, his fight with the monster was quite taxing and took a lot out of him...
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
