"Yeah, That would be kinda awkward... " Flurry paused in thought. She suddenly grinned and turned back to light. "I`ll just try to make you have a small nose then! "
Before he could object Flurry directed her attention back to Chip.
"Yeah! I`m gonna train really hard! I'm gonna be the best shapeshifted... everrr! " Flurry squealed proudly. She paused. "Like that time I tried to become a blacksmith... only this is something I can learn! Those hammers were too heavy anyway... "
Flurry grinned as Chip asked what they should do. She hopped onto Light's shoulders and looked at Chip as if they both agreed on what she was thinking.
"Shapeshift training! Shapeshift training! " Flurry chanted at Chip. She then paused. "Please? "
"Yeah... I am afraid being blacksmith is not good for you. Shape shifting is much better idea." It was nice to see that Flurry was full of hope. After all Crystal Gems weren't in the best situation... However she was always so happy and cheerful, that was making other gems happy too. Why hw created gem like her? Do they wanted to be more happy. Light probablu understand her a little because he was also childish.
Suddenly Flurry hoped to Pearl's shoulders. Light didn't expect that and made weird girlish noise. He was hoping that gems won't react to this... Light blushed a little. However later it was kinda nice.
Flurry really wanted to have a shapeshift training. "I don't know how you feel about this Chip but I can't say no to this face."

Chip was thinking. How was he suppose to train shapeshifting, when he never learned it himself? He just knew it from the start. There could be a way to do that, but right now he had no idea... "While I would really like to help you, I have no idea where to start... I just think about what I want to do... and then I just do it... like this..."
He turned his hands into some weird tentacles... only for a moment before he turned them back. "You just need to concentrate... imagine the shape you want to turn to... and then just start the process... It's really just that simple... the main problem is the concentration and you have to have enough power to make it happen..."
Flurry watched him intently. She rubbed her chin thoughtfully as if it were some complex, yet majestic process that was hard for her to accept with her mind. She nodded dutifully. Standing up straight she started to hum in a low voice. She wiggled her arms, focusing as she closed her eyes. She hummed louder and louder until her arms glowed. When she opened her eyes her hands had become feet. It was obviously not her intent, as her eyes widened in shock at this.
"Wah...Aaaah! Noooo! " She screamed, looking at her 'hands'. Fortunately they started to glow again and became hands once again. She sighed in relief. "Uh, what's something easy that I could try? That was a bit hard... "
Light was quite schocked when Chip turned his head to tentacles. He nearly fall "Woahh!!! He looks like a monster from a comic I was reading. Or should I say 'looking at pictures' because letters looked like some kind of an ancient language. It also had a nice art style, people had bigger eyes for some reason." It was nice to Chip becoming normal again.
Flurry tried... she did something. This time however she was screaming so it made Pearl more nervous. Luckly he menaged to not overreact. "OH MY, ARE YOU OKAY?!?! CHIP, IS SHE ARLIGHT? WHY WERE YOU THINKING ABOUT THE FOOTS FLURRY?!" good hat she came back to normal. They were too much emotions for one day... one more time and Liht would probably pass out.

Chip had some troubles staying serious when he saw Flurry changing her hands to feet. It was good first try though, even if Flurry looked like she is going to explode. Pearl started panicking for no reason whatsoever. "Good Flurry, for a first try that was quite good. And be calm Pearl, Flurry is fine... just grew few additional feet for a moment. There is nothing wrong about that..."
He prolonged his body and more and more legs starting to pop out. Soon, he was looking like some kind of centipede. "See? Just more legs... and feet... still me, still perfectly ok... and the problem is, that there is nothing "easy" or "difficult". You just need to imagine it... and then just do so... perhaps something you have no trouble imagining?"
"You're silly Light! " She giggled. "I'm fine see! "
She waved her hands around energetically. Turning toward Chip she listened to him explain to Light the process of shapeshifting. She nodded as he spoke. Suddenly he started to shapeshift. Flurry watched and giggled at first, but then seemed very disturbing. She cringed a bit as he looked like a human centipede.
"Eh... Chip could you turn back please? I mean... you did a great job... but that's kind of bothering me. " She said hesitantly. "No offense really... "
She then took in a deep breath and tried to concentrate. She squeezed her eyes tightly and shook a bit. Suddenly she shapeshifted into a replica of Chip, only white.
"Hey! Lookie! I'm Chip! " She giggled. "This was so easy to imagine cuz you're right there! "
Pearl probably took Flurry's comment about him being stupid too seriously "You... you really think so?"
Light looked at Chip's new form "Yeah... there is nothing wrong in this, nothing at all. Good that there are no humans here, they would be scared."
The more Light saw the more he was okay with him having only a regular form. Yes, it is a usefull ability but it would probably never saved his life anyway. What could possible wrong happen? He will fall from the big mountain? That was ridiculus.
Flurry changed her shape again. She just started and she is arleady good at this. For some reason she decided to be Chip now. "That is really adorable but I think you look great the way you are."

Chip looked a little surprised, perhaps even a little hurt, but he quickly transformed back. He didn't really want to make Flurry uncomfortable. Having too many legs was weird anyway... it was really difficult to move in that state and it consumed a lot of power to keep that useless form.
"Sorry Flurry, I suppose it was a little weird."
Flurry transformed once again, but this time she made perfect copy of Chip. It was quite impressive. And at least now he knew, that he would look good in white as well.
"Well I disagree Pearl, I think Flurry look great now."
He just had to say it, it was too tempting.
"But I guess it would be horribly confusing, if I were here twice... and you do look great the way you are. But sometimes it could be really useful to look differently. What I want to say is: great job."
Flurry looked at both of them with a smile. She didn't seem to be offended nearly as much as they had assumed, so all of the apologies that they made went over her head. Her naïve smile looked odd on Chip's face. While most of her looked like a white version of Chip she was making an expression that Chip would never make. Suddenly the smile faded from her head.
"Uh...Uh...What?! " She started to shiver. "Waaaah! I'm craaamping! Make it stooooop! "
Flurry suddenly shapeshifted back. She rubbed her body as if it hurt. She frowned and looked at Chip.
"I didn't know that was gonna happen... I guess I tried too hard.... I should have picked something easier... "
"Yeah... it was weird. Let's just stop shape shift lessons for now." Of course Light didn't say that because he can't shape shift like Chip or at least like Flurry ^^
Suddenly Flurry sgarted to act weird "Flurry? Are yoh okay." than she started to yell "Flurry?! What is going on?! It is all my fault! I said that the shape shift lessons is a great idea! Why do I always mess up easy things!"
Luckly she came back to normal. Liht ran to her and helped her stand. He than turned to Chip "She is not ready! We shouldn't have any shape shifting lessons for now... it might end badly. Flurry... what about learning something else? Like drawing, math, human culture, the life of biological life forms, there are of things you can learn!"

Chip was almost fascinating, looking at himself, but acting totally not like himself. It was so strange. But then Flurry quickly transformed back. She was a little shocked by the experience it seemed.
"Just keep calm, Flurry... it was great success, you are just not used to do this... so it's a little... uncomfortable. And perhaps you tried a difficult transformation at first, so it took a toll... but if you practice you will be able to stay transformed much longer and without those problems."
He was actually quite proud of Flurry.
"And Pearl, please, calm down. This is natural for gems... it's like human muscles, if you don't use it, it will get weaker... but once you train it will work as intended."
Flurry grinned and pumped her fist. She looked at Chip with excited eyes.
"Yeah! I'm gonna practice every day so that I can shapeshift into really cool stuff like you! " However shapeshifting into cool stuff was clearly not the difficulty of it. Shapeshifting into something large and powerful could be quite easy, but it would injure a gem that lacked practice. Like a human cramp from doing a workout that was too difficult. Flurry was only able to become Chip because she knew how to shapeshift, but without practice she would be unable to keep that form for long. Then Light started to worry again. Flurry wasn't very bothered by it, as she found it cute to see him worried over silly things all of the time. "Yeah Light! It's like people! "
Light didn't really understand. It was like explaining to the soldier that war ended 30 years ago. "Huh? I am sorry but what is natural in that? You change your physical form to look like something else... what is more natural than being in your original form? That is how you look since forefer after all."
Light felt a little bit worried when Flurry said that she wants to train every day. He was probably worring too much like mother or older brother. But he was also not confident enough to protest "Are you sure...? What if something will go wrong? I don't really thing it is the same as Humans biological forms. Their bodies are more fragile after all."

"Pearl... naturally we are gemstones... your form is what you make it... humans might say there is nothing natural about that, we are created after all, not "born". So what is natural? What isn't?"
Chip just shrugged.
"Or do you thing this should be my intended form?"
He asked. Then he started to glow, he grew bigger, stronger... his shoulder got broader... the only same thing was his colour which stayed orange. "This is my intended form... one I took for the 2nd time in my life... form, that diamonds wanted me to be."
He said with deeper voice. Then, quite quickly he turned back in Chip. He appeared really tired by this experience, even in pain... it took him few moments to get his barrings back.
"If something goes wrong you poof... that's the worst thing that can happen..."

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
