"That's horrible! I never imagined that being jewelry would be so bad... " Flurry said, propping her face up with her hands. She continued to ramble on about this topic that she hadn't considered he may be sensitive about. "It always looked kind of fun, cuz' jewelry looks so nice. I even considered getting some once, but after this... I don't think I want any! "
"Well if you ever wanna take us there then you could just worry about carrying Light... I think you can, you carried me right? " Flurry said, scratching her head. "I think that you could bring me high enough and then I could just ride my cloud! My cloud has to stay in the same spot though, it can't go up and down. "
Pearl summoned hologram. Flurry could see there human shop with gems and jewelery. "You really don't want to... there are so many gems... I feel uncomfortable in places full of round Pearls and other gems." Light said while looking at his not finished gemstone. He got rid of hologram "Luckly most of them are probably just rocks, they are not living creatures like us."
"Wait... you are strong enough to hold both of us and you didn't tell me? We would be here much faster" Pearl really didn't expect him to habe so much power. After all he looked like a human in age of 15-17, similar to Pearl.
"It's okay, we can go there another day. Right Flurry? Fire Opa- I mean Chip probably have a lot of work to do.'"

"Well I am strong enough to carry a gem around... I've done that several times in the past... but I am not sure if I can carry two... I guess if Flurry sits on her cloud I might be able to take both of you there... but it would still be quite a task... than again... I might have another idea..."
Chip said and closed his eyes for a moment. Then, he started shape-shifting, turning into big dragon.
"Yeah, this might work... perhaps..."
He opened his jaws shooting a fire in the air. It was his fire of course, had nothing to do with his shape, but he was just showing himself a little. He quickly turned back though...
"Well that is one possibility... but right now I think we had quite a day... all of us in different way but still..."
"You're funny light! " Flurry giggled, nudging him in the arm. She then nodded at Light's questions. "Chip is supa -strong! He could probably carry you, just not both of us, that would be hard for anybody... except a Quartz... but most anybody! "
As Chip transformed Flurry stared blankly, unable to take in what had happened at first. Soon her eyes widened to the size of sausages as what had happened sank in.
"Aaaah! a dragon ate Chiiiip! " Flurry fell backwards, bumping her head on the floor. Sitting up she was very dizzy. "Oooog... "
She rubbed her head and squinted at the dragon. It then turned back into Chip. Her eyes went huge again!
"Wooooah! You can shapeshift like crazy! I met this one sapphire who was super good at it too! " Flurry said, shaking her fists excitedly in front of her.
Suddenly Chip turned to a dragon "Hmmm it looks like one of creatures from human's books..." Dragon was shoting fire. Light got nervous "Be carefull! You don't want to change this place to ashes... do you? It would be a shame, it is one of the greatest gem structures on Earth. It is also arleady broken a little."
Pearl noticed that Flurry actually belived that it is a really dragon who ate Chip. Fire rocks are probably not tasty "Oh Flurry..." Pearl summoned hologram "Human books say that dragons are born from water and live in China and we are not in China. Why would a dragon be here anyway? Ohhhh and books say that they are actually friendly to humans. So why would the be mean to us?"

"There were times when I couldn't shapeshift... those times were... difficult. But now, when I can I do it quite often and glad. It's fun... and practical too..."
He turned to orange copy of Flurry.
"Aaaah! Somebody made a copy of me!"
He yelled, making a step backwards and falling to the ground in a very Flurry fashion. Yes, he was making fun from her, but there weren't any bad intentions behind it. "I can't do anything with the color... but otherwise it's pretty good, isn't it?"
He asked while shape shifting back to his old self.
"I thought every gem could shape shift... after all those bodies are just light... you should be able to reform it as needed..."
He knew there were some gems who were saying they can't, but it was strange...
Flurry seemed surprised, taken off guard by the transformation Chip had made.
"Aaaah! Somebody made a copy of me! " She said in unison with Chip. She then fell backwards, in unison with Chip. Realizing what had just happen she blushed, embarrassed that he had predicted her so accurately. She stood slowly.
"Y-yeah I can shapeshift too! " Flurry said defensively, she wasn't much offended by Chip's gesture, but her embarrassment needed to be treated by a little showing off. She closed her eyes and concentrated so hard that it seemed she would hurt herself. A pair of kitten ears appeared on the top of her head. She giggled as she rubbed them. The ears twitched as a wind passed by. She seemed irritated by them after five minutes however, and returned to normal. "Ooooh... well I know that we can, but I have never turned into a huge dragon like that! Also, when I do little things like those ears it really starts to hurt after a bit. "
Light was looking at both gems wih confused look. "I think Earth is changing gems that live here. However I am still old me for some strange reason."
They started talking about shape shifting powers "Well.. maybe it wasn't correct when I said that I don't have shape shifting powers. I just never tried. I used to not be allowed to use them and now... there is no point in doing this. I also think that my body looks great the way it is. I don't need cat ears. However... I can do this!"
Pearl changed his clothes to his old space suit. (I am not sure if it is the same thing as shape shifting. If I am wrong please tell me. I will edit this post =)). His toga changed to slim shirt and jeans. Shirt was light brown while jeans were brown. It was posible to see 4 diamonds around his gem (chest) and laurel wreath on the back. He also had helmet. It was white with wing symbols on the left and right side. It also had glasses (similar to Garnets but more round). Light took off his helmet "I used to wear it long time ago when I was traveling by ship. I don't know why other gems wanted me to wart it... but at least it looks cool."

"See, you have no troubles shapeshifting... even if only in smaller scale. Nothing a good training won't fix... "
If Flurry could summon cat ears she could do the rest too, but not right away. It just needed practice, like most things. And Pearl? She was able to change clothes... that was start. "Shape shifting isn't easy... but it's worth it. It might be a little unpleasant at times... but you just have to brave it and endure the discomfort. It's fun... running through city as a cat... or flying above cities as a hawk... it's quite stealthy too... "
He said. Sure, he could fly even without shape shifting, but there was something calming about being a bird... he did even enjoyed being a vulture...
"Well Light, earth makes gems really great and helps us think in better ways so we can be fair to everybody! Probably you were already a great thinker before you came to earth. " Flurry suggested. "You seemed nice when I first met you. "
Flurry eyed Light's helmet. "That does look cool... "
It was then that Chip said that she could become good at shapeshifting if she tried.
"You think so?! " Flurry said in shock. She never considered that she could shapeshift like Chip did just then. Her eyes were wide as she listened carefully. "You mean I can turn into crazy stuff, like that big dragon!? C-can you train me! It's fine if you don't want to, but that would be really cool! "
When Flurry mentioned the moment when he first saw her Light made an nostalggic look. "Heh... thanks..."
Flurry did liked Light's helmet "Well... you can have it actually" He gave Flurry a helmet "However it will be gone when I will change my clothes, I will be poofed or I will try to change my form."
Chip was talking how shape shifting works, etc... Light didn't understand this. Probably because he never did this before. It would be hard for him anyway. Hd was a young gem compared to others and was made in lab, not in typical kindergarden. "Well I do like birds and being able to fly sounds marvelous... but I will try it later. I don't even know if it is posible."

"Well you know, that you are actually just the stone right? The other parts of you are just a illusions made solid... so there is really nothing that is preventing you from changing your shape as you see fit... as I gathered some gems are not "programmed" to do it, possibly because it is not required for their intended function... but every gem can learn how to do it... it might be long, difficult and painful process but it should be possible..."
He looked at Pearl once more.
"For example Pearl here... as I was told Pearls on Homeworld are... no offence intended... just servants. Their task is to work and look pretty... so they can change their clothes... so they can look pretty... and fit every scenario... but still be recognised as Pearls... that's probably the reason you can change clothes, but not the rest... Homeworld gems wouldn't want you to be able to mask that you are a Pearl... that's just one more reason to learn it I think..."
He didn't want to be insensitive, but it was the truth, at least on Homeworld... Earth was different...
Flurry nodded and made a high pitched noise in her throat, welcoming Light's gratitude. She then grinned and her eyes went wide as he handed her the helmet.
"I can't just take your helmet... " Flurry examined it with a lustful gaze. It was a very cool helmet. "Maybe I can just try it on. "
Flurry put the helmet on her head, as it was too big she wobbled about and fell over.
"I think I`ll want to be able to shapeshift to fit this! " Flurry said, standing up and holding the helmet in her hands. She then turned to Chip as he spoke.
"Well... it would be really hard to turn into a big dragon right? " Flurry pumped one fist as she was inspired by what Chip said. Then he mentioned a part she wasn't so comfortable with. "P-painful!? "
She looked scared from a moment, but then her expression became serious.
Light was listening to Chip's words. They were making him a little bit uncomfortable. "... I would be mad if not the fact that you said I am pretty. Wait... did you just said painful?" Pearl didn't expect that shape shifting could hurt. "Like I said, I think my body looks great the way it is. I don't need cat ears or wings. However wings would be usefull."
Flurry was really exited of Light's helmet. However it was a little to big for her. "hmmm I feel like my head is too big now." White Spinel was determinated to be able to change her shape "Of course you will! You would probably need train for a really long time but after a while you will be able to do this. I guess... If you will please don't shape shift to me, it would be akward. Last time someone tried to act as me I had too big nose."

"I am fairly sure you can do it if you really do your best. But you have to endure... you can't give up after few failures... that is part of the process..."
He just made sure, that Flurry understood this. Not everything was possible to master right away. Sometimes it just took a little trying... and failing... and doing it again and again...
"Anyway... what now? Are we just going to stand here chatting? Seems like a waste of perfectly fine day..."
Granted, they had quite a busy time lately, but that was the past now. He was getting quickly restless just standing here, doing nothing productive. Talking to friends was something, but he could talk to them while doing something...

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"'s Origin is still unknown, some suspect it was a viral infection, other claim it was a Diamond experiment gone awry and other suspect the organics were behind it. Regardless no one seem to have a proper answer about what it was and why its only isolated to Earth
*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
