There was literally no time to tell him. Since he got the shield they haven't spoken yet. But there was no reason to be talking about that. Morion just had... other priorities...
"I know, the world won't save itself by...uhm... well itself."
He smiled, but the smile was quite forced. Yes, Morion's doors were opened, but he just wasn't in them most of the time. And Chip just wanted him to be something he wasn't... Morion took a lot of time to try... but right now he had more important things to do...
"If you want your Sapphire, you should go to Beach city... there is one... you shouldn't have trouble finding him... I might by able to help if you want me to..."
"No, the world won't save itself... nor us. Our priority is to save humans, Gems and plants and animals from this doomed world. Months passed since the Fleet arrived..."
The Smoky Quartz reminded his young apprentice "...Pink Diamond have been generous, Her Majesty gave time to the Rebels to rethink their lives and actions. And what did they do with it? NOTHING!"
Morion stamped with his cane
"Nothing... they just showed the most generous and caring of the Diamonds, they can't be reasoned with. Well, not nothing, some of them joined us on live TV, but a handfull of Crystal Gems are too few to be a sign to Homeworld, something has started; the situation started to solve itself."
He explained darkly "The Rebels and the Independents just worstened the situation, again. If we had any chance to save and preserve this planet, that is lost thanks to them... The bright side is, thanks to my efforts, Humanity is mostly on the side of our Empire, so there is still a little hope yet. So if you have Crystal Gem or Rebel friends my boy, and you find some time to do it, please talk to them and convince them to surender, they are just dragging this world down to Hell!"
Morion shook his head
"Sorry kiddo, I know Earth is your home. But I'm afraid... the planet's future is pretty grim, thanks to these troublemakers. So my topmost priority is to leave Earth and find another planet to our friends and allies. Or even escape this reality to another... depending Padparadscha's experiments."
Then he smirked
"Chip, I can't go to Beach City. Last time I've been there in disguise, padparadscha was the only Gem arund. Visiting that misrable little town would only agitate the Crystal Gems. Worsten this awful situation. But I'm tempted to fill several trucks with some c4 and send them to the Crystal Temple as gifts to the Rebels and watch the fireworks..."
Morion mumbled Of course he wasn't serious; he had all the time to do that, but never done it Yet.
"And I suggest, try to avoid that town kiddo! Okay? We will find a Sapphire, sooner or later... I hope their oracular abilites will help us, and one of them will come to us, to save time. We don't really have any time left..."

Chip just stood there, listening to the variation of the same speech he heard dozens of time. It was looking bad for Earth, but he just had to hope, that Pink Diamond won't destroy this planet... that perhaps she will found the value of this planet... and will leave it as it is. She could easily colonise rest of Crystal system...
"Ok... then I guess... I will go to my room..."
He was trying to reach Morion, he failed... he tried to offer him solution to his problem, he failed yet again. There was no reason for him to be here.
"C'mon ser Reginald... let's leave Morion to run his universe..."
He hoped, that Morion will stop him... but he didn't even know why. He was doing what he could and they were still growing apart. Just because Chip wanted Morion to be something he couldn't...
"Tell me kiddo, did it ever occured to you that maybe you're wrong and considered that unlikely possibility, I am right?"
The smoky quartz asked sarcastically He resisted the temptation to grab the young Fire Opal and shook him; se he just stood there, resting on his cane "I never wanted to rule... not a planet, not a colony, not the whole universe! Do you think it is easy to do all this!? NO! It would be easy to simply leave, left this insanity behind me and forget this failed colonization atempt, yet I am still here, risking everything for the humans, plants, animals, Gem, you, everybody! For every ungrateful, selfish, scared, insane, naive, opportunistic person or simply victim of this situation! No matter the dangers or my losses... I am still here! Tell me what did you do, beside undermining my efforts?"
The smoky Quartz tried to bring order in to the chaos, where the Crystal Gems and selfish rebels and independents dragged the planet But it seemed to him, he was the only one
"Day after day, week after week, month after month I am working toward that goal, basically alone... And you know what? It is NOT worth it!"
Morion shook his head
"I don't know why I'm still here..."
He turned and left through the other door Why bother, if even his own apprentice couldn't and wouldn't understand? If Chip tried to stop him, he stayed, but not really expected that from the kid
"If you know, you are wrong most of the time, why on Earth you try to pretend you are right and everybody else is wrong??? And fight with me about everything...?"
The smoky Quartz shook his head with bitter voice
"I never asked from you to push yourself, or to be "worthy", Diamonds, what a stupid word that is! I never asked you to be strong. Or to be alone... I always was there for you, and always will be, but you refused to accept or notice that! I simply asked you to be Chip... not even Fire Opal, Chip! I always found time to be with you when you come to me.
After all, he was the Boss Not to mention his only superior was Blue Diamond He respected Opalite, but technically even he didn't had the authority to order him around Morion paid heavy price for his "freedom", but that actually worth it
"...but lately I almost had to order you to come when I wanted to see you..."
"Don't be sorry... just... don't try to be somebody and something that you are not. You are Chip. So be Chip.
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
