After all Flurry was part of the young Fire Opal's personal life, and Morion stayed out of that Everybody needs privacy
"The suit person is a tailor. And don't worry. I have already made several suits for you long ago... I will send them to your room. Take your time..."
The smoky Quartz nodded
"I will wait you in the car... and Chip? Stay calm. Don't let Sulfur or his ally provoke you! their gratest triumph would be to make you hurt innocent peoples and Gems, to lose control of your fire and flames and destroy. Don't let them tarnish your reputation! Stay calm. After we are sure, your friend is safe... and we are close enough to capture that abomination, we will make our move"
Morion promised and let Chip go After the kid arrived the car headed to the address....

Chip ran to his room quickly. Not that he wanted to be in a suit, but this mission was important. It took him few minutes, to pick something from the suits Morion have made for him, mostly because suits were really uncomfortable. The only people who wore them were waiters and members of Mafia... which he kinda was? Since Morion was basically a crime boss... and he was his apprentice and heir... mah...
When he was finally finished, he went down, be elevator this time. Most of the time, he just flew down, but he didn't want to burn a hole in his new suit...
"Everything will be fine... it is possible, Sulfur just wants to talk, to dine with us. After all, he is an insane, cracked Gem. Not chipped, but cracked. I am not defending his actions, but his mind is scrambled. Like computer program, that lost some of its coding... so I wouldn't be surprised if he would greet us as friends and honored guest, completely oblivious to the fact, he is on our Death List. Among the top 10. Or 5."
Morion watched the streets, the lights as the cars passed by
"Sulfur is a victim, like you... never forget that my Apprentice! We have to be extra calm and polite, so if he have your little friend, she would be safe. Sulfur is a dream-walker. Gem with a strong, but broken mind. I'm afraid we can't kill him just like that. Nor bubble him... if his mind is connected with your girlfriend's mind, the psyhic backslash could kill her. Or erase her memory.

"You know who else looked "fabulous"? He-man... I don't want to look like He-man..."
He muttered while he was trying to use the seat belt. "For the last time... she is not my girlfriend... she is my friend, yes... but that's all! And stop excusing Sulfur. He is a psychopath... totally coco... and he is no victim, he is a murderer! I will be calm... to a point. But if he tries something I will burn him to crisp... you admitted we should've kill him when we had the chance... let's fix that mistake..."
He said adamantly. He was trying to think about Sulfur rather then Flurry, it was easier somehow... but if Sulfur hurt Flurry in any way, he will pay... which basically meant he was going to melt him to puddle instead of burning him...
The building was covered in many bright screens advertising various products from burgers to televisions. Not the largest or most iconic building in empire city, it was the Himitsu company building. It's main merchandise were cars, but the building didn't produce them. The main purpose of the large tower was for work on advertising and organizing funds of the organization. The only reason that anyone not part of the company would visit would be the food court on the top floor.
Sure enough the address was a diner on the top floor. Inside the building, there was no security. The elevators, there were three, were near the entrance and easily accessible. On the first floor humans were watching the news channel or sipping coffee from a coffee machine near them. The sounds of the cars outside were quieter than outside, but roaring loud nevertheless.
The Smoky Quartz stepped out from the car and observed the Himitsu company's building "So... this is the human Spire of the Himitsu company. Remind me to send some lawyers to poke them... "
The Assassin nodded to Chip
"I am not that happy, Sulfur managed to sneak in our City my Apprentice ... and managed to recruit some influental human friends. Not a surprise tho'... If I would have dream-walking powers, I would already rule this planet."
"Remember kiddo! Stay calm! Keep your eyes open! Remain vigilant... it could be a trap. It could be just a nice diner. And our first priority is to find your friend! Sulfur is secondary. If the price of saving your friend is leting Sulfur escape, so be it...! This is an order. No endangering innocents! Let's go in..."

Chip rarely even saw his city from this view. He mostly flew around, watching it from birds point of view. But this was fine too. They were driving to quite tall building, though it was mostly full of some advertising, it was actually quite... distasteful. "I am not happy about that either... but with a little luck we might get them out of here for good... and I will try to remember."
He said. He was still trying to adjust his suit to well... suit him better.
"I know, I know, deep breath, keep calm and think of England... or something like that. I will keep on guard... and hopefully we can achieve both our objectives at the same time... but let's not get ahead of ourselves... "
At the top floor was a food court, full of mostly fast food restaurant. Their destination was a lot classier and easily distinguishable from the others.The Diner was a small establishment, it didn't even have tables. It was in the middle of a food court after all. The diner,Saporem Cenaculo, consisted of checkered white and black tiles. It had the occasional picture of a human, usually a singer, on the walls. Smooth jazz played from a jukebox, fitting the slow business. Two glass walls were separating the restaurant from the rest of the food court, the glass was transparent, but very blurry.
Drops of water fell from the ceiling, but no one was to be seen.
"Smoky Quartz! You actually arrived!" Came a voice from above. Sulfur was standing on the ceiling, upside down. The fact that his hair was still affected by gravity may suggest that he wasn't reversing gravity, rather using an ability to walk on the roof. He had a mop in his hands. He apparently had been mopping the ceiling. "I was afraid that you would only come if I had offered to give the gift to you here, but that would sound like an obvious trap."
"Fire opal? I didn't recognize you, you clean up quite nicely, you could almost pass for a gentleman." Sulfur said, still on the ceiling. "I suppose this marks our first meeting, correct Smoky Quartz?" He held out his hand for an upside-down handshake.
The Smoky Quartz was in his humanoid form He was in a tuxedo with a cane, without any 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. It was evident, he was wearing real, human clothes, it wasn't his projection, since the shirt and vest hided his Gem. His skin tone was a bit grey...ish, like the smoke, but he could pass as a caucasian man. Morion rested on his cane, looking up to their host
His voice was cold, like a dead pinguin on an ice slab But rested his other hand on Chip's shoulder, to keep the kid calm
"Yes, recived your Gift... he told us, you captured a Gem, called "Flurry". And that you have an ally, a Blue Quartz...

Chip still didn't know why he had to wear a suit in this building, especially since they were meeting Sulfur... but in the moment he saw him he didn't mind the suit anymore. All he wanted to do was blasting Sulfur into oblivion. It would be so easy. But Chip stayed cool, so far. He managed it even when Sulfur came quite passively aggressive, calling Chip by his gem, instead of his name...
He was probably even colder then Morion at this moment...
"Well I haven't changed much, so may I suggest visiting an ophthalmologist?"
He said as politely as he could at the moment. He chose to let Morion do most of the talking while he will stay on guard. Sulfur was playing with fire right now...
"I beg your pardon!?" He snapped. "Now it is true I have committed atrocities in the past, but I have never captured, nor heard of a gem by that name. I did however see a white spinel get between me and my prey. Normally in that case, I eliminate them, but the pearl made a deal with me to spare it if he came quietly. I am a bit mad, but never let it be said I am not a gem of my word. I let her free into the forest, I have no clue where she is now. Although, she is just so weak... I don't quite see the point."
Sulfur clenched his fists. "...Blue Quartz has nothing to do with this. This is between me and you two."
Sulfur then started to laugh at Chip's question.
"I was referring to your fine attire Fire Opal, it looks good on you!" Sulfur said, gesturing to the suit. "It's a compliment, have you heard of them?"
Morion ightened his grip on Cip's shoulder, as a sign to not to attack Yet
"White Spinel, yes, her name is Flurry... I think. So you do know her. And spared her? Forgive me if I don' belive your words. Why would you spare a Crystal Gem? Just because Light Mocha Pearl sacrificed himself and offered himself as a bubbled hostage?"
The Smoky Quartz asked politely; the story was quite unbelivable "...it is a bit unlikely. Actually as unlikely as the "friendship" of yours whit this Blue Quartz. By the way, who is Blue Quatz and where is she? Let me guess, you let White Spinel go, and Blue Quartz went after her, to hunt her down...?
Post by Chip the Fire Opal on Feb 11, 2017 11:37:03 GMT
Chip managed to smirk a little, but that was the only reaction for what Sulfur said. He wasn't stupid, he knew what Sulfur meant, he just didn't care about his fake compliments.
"Why have you invited us here?"
He asked directly. He wasn't quite so diplomatic as Morion and he wasn't going to dance around the issue. Sulfur wanted them here and they were here... they were playing his game right now, which just didn't appear to be a good idea. Chip would love to know what was Morion's plan right now, since he surely didn't tell him. He appeared calm, but he had to fight himself to not get really angry. He swore that next time he will see Sulfur he will attack him on sight...
"Crimes? I don't know what you're talking about." He dropped from the ceiling, landing on his hands. He briefly did a handstand on the floor, he then backflipped and landed on his feet. "Smoky Quartz, you're giving that White Spinel a large amount of credit, she was so weak that she barely existed. I don't want to shatter something that I could just poke instead. Blue Quartz simply imprisoned her as I fought the pearl, we then released her into the forest. It would be preposterous to assume that I could prove any of these claims if you do not take my word. -Apologies, but... may I ask... why you care about this crystal gem? You are a loyalist correct?"
Sulfur tilted his head toward Chip.
"I simply wanted to negotiate with Smoky Quartz, our relationship isn't exactly... stable at the moment" Sulfur said, glancing back toward Morion. "I thought you two would be congratulating me for attacking crystal gems..."
"If Sulfur is telling the truth, your friend is in grave danger. If she was really that weak, barely could kept her form, you need to go and find her immediately Chip! The City is safe... tho' it seems not safe enough. But the surrounding areas could be full of Gem Monsters! Corrupted beasts... you know this very well kiddo; during your daily patrols, you need to fight with the ones that are brave or stupid enough to venture in reguralry ..."
The Smoky Quartz rested on his cane both hands
"She is alone there and weak... you are faster and your eyes are like the hawk's. Not to mention, if I would go, or if I would accompany you Chip, I could scare you little friend to death. And I think that hypocrite Pearl is looking for her too...! We can't risk, Sulfur is telling the truth this time, and let your friend shatter. I will handle this, don't worry... "
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
