"not at all! It's just that... Having you....in my limo. It's a huge honor!"
"OK that's enough Liam. Just drive. "
He nodded and entered the car. As Liam drove them off, Howlite turned to Chip.
"to answer your question, no. I'm far worse. I'm the "mess with Flurry and I'll make Hell look like Christmas morning" type guy. I'd never hurt her. She means far too much to me. Now then!"
The car stopped and Liam opened the door as they arrived at the party. Everyone was dancing to loud rave music. Food and drinks were everywhere. Upon seeing Chip the crowd fell silent. Howlite could hearvthem whispering.
"it's him. He's back. The heir of the city is back. "

Chip always took it as his responsibility to protect this city, but now, when Morion left, he intended to leave. Gem mutants learned to avoid this place long time ago, so it should be perfectly save, he never got used to this kind of behaviour though. He decided to ignore it for now. He rather replied to Howlite.
"Fair enough, I'm glad we're on the same page over here..."
Meanwhile the car stopped in front of the party. There was a of people, too much for Chip's liking. The music was too loud, too much food and drink... and of course someone noticed him right away. He just sighed.
"Undeserved one... I just destroyed few gem mutants... nothing more. I don't like when people do this..."
"Johnny! Get the place set up. I want everyone out. Yes immediately. What'd you mean? Oh hush. I can take care of this myself. Sounds to me like someone wants a dock in their pay... That's better. You have 15 minutes. "
He hung up and faced Chip.
"Good news! We're having the party at my place! And don't worry about your reputation. My boys only care about 1 gem in this town and that's me. Let's get going!"
He led Chip outside where Liam was waiting with his limo.
"heading back to Teddy's sir?"
He turned to Chip.
"wanna know how I picked the name? It was Flurry's idea. "

This was so surreal. Morion was the one who kept this city really safe. Chip just blasted few monsters, stopped few fires and might have beat few thieves. Was Empire city going to be fine without him? Probably yes with Bloodstone around. For some reason he felt like betraying those people, yet he didn't owe them anything...
"Yeah, that's cool..."
He said unconvincingly. He turned to M-tower, since it could be viewed from every place in Empire city. It was still standing there as a beacon of hope... but what will happen next? He had no idea... without the ship over it it looked almost empty...
"It sounds like something Flurry might come up with... "
He said, yet once again there was something missing in his voice, it sounded somewhat hollow.
"I did tell them Chip. Once they proved their loyalty I told them."
Liam spoke up.
"as much as I like you and Morion, I prefer serving under Howlite. He's got a certain... Feel to him. It's hard to explain."
Frank rolled his eyes.
"if there's one thing you learn from being in a cartel, it's knowing who to connect with. Sure Morion had money and connections but they were all the upper class. You see, you and Morion own the civilians and the businessmen and even the mobsters. But Howlite here owns the underground. Thugs, conscripts, gangbangers, we all serve him. He simply allowed us to blend in. He's got boys everywhere."
"I met Howlite after breaking out of prison. Now I'm a chef and the city is none the wiser. "
"you see Chip, sometimes it's good to own the bottom of the world instead of the top."

It was funny, they were actually thinking Morion owned just most of the Empire city. Everything in the whole city was his, underground or not. And if there was someone who thought himself free he just has been doing Morion's bidding without them even knowing it. But Morion was gone... and everything was owned by Bloodstone. "Whatever runs your boat I guess."
He just said. There was no reason to argue with them. Chip was slowly growing angry, all he wanted was to forget about Morion leaving, instead they were once more talking about him. It was maddening... "I get it Howlite, let's talk about something else... anything else..."
He finally said it straight... Morion was gone, Chip wasn't... and had to learn to live with that

Chip faked a smile, he was getting good at it.
"Thank you, but I don't drink... I don't have the parts I need for it and I don't want them. And strength of it is irrelevant, since gem can't absorb methanol."
So many gems he knew were drinking or eating... it was weird and a little disgusting. It was utterly unnecessary. Yes, he was eating cookies, but that was mostly for the good memory of eating them the first time, also the texture was pleasing... perhaps other gems found drinking and eating pleasing in general? Could've been.
"I have no idea Howlite, I know you're trying, but I'm not in the mood for games... I'm not sure if I have mood for anything..."
"Oh no. That's not how we're doing this. Have a seat. I have an idea."
He sat down in a booth and gestured for Chip to sit down across from him.
"I assume you're familiar with the game never have I ever? Basically it's a game meant for people to learn about each other. It's usually a drinking game but we don't have to do that. Basically we say "never have I ever" and then something. If the person you ask has done it, he holds up a finger. First one to have all 5 fingers up loses. It'll be fun. We don't really know much about each other."
While he waited for Chip to say if he wanted to or not, he poured himself a Greyhound.

"I never played many games... first I was a runaway, trying to survive in a hostile world... then I was a protector, who was tryhing to keep an entire city safe, so no, I don't know this game..."
He appreciated that Howlite was trying... but he was in a bad mood and it was showing... "Perhaps I should go... I can see you're doing your best... and I'm acting like a jerk... and I can't promise you it won't get worse before it gets better... "
He was moody, as any fire was... at one moment it could warmly illuminate your room... few moments later it could burn your house down without any warnings... and right now Chip was in the right mood to burn something by accident...
Howlite's bouncer grabbed a lead pipe and approached the doors. He slid the pipe into the doors and then guarded it himself. He drew his MAC 10 and had it facing the floor. Prepared to aim and fire if anyone tried to leave.
"Now Chip you have 2 choices. 1 you can kill my bouncer, leave, and return to your depressed brooding. Or... You can come have a seat and actually try to enjoy myself. It's up to you."
It seemed cruel and insane but he meant well. He was trying to get Chip to try to not be sad. He felt bad for the Opal. Not something he often felt.

Chip was a little surprised by what Howlite did next. Not that much though since he was on edge since he arrived. Mostly because it could easily be trap from the beginning. For a strange reason it summoned a smile on his face.
"You know I have more options than that, right? I could easily break up through your ceiling... I managed to get through a security door on gem ship with brute strength alone... sure, the falling ceiling might kill your bouncer as well, but it would be safer then going right through him. Or I guess I could go through you, it might be really interesting fight... but that would most likely wipe out the neighbourhood... which is sub optimal... "
Chip didn't really feel in any danger. For a long time. He knew, he was one of the most powerful gems around. Granted, there were some that were a lot more powerful, but he still believed he could take them or at least escape from them...
"Can you just have a seat? I mean come on what's gonna happen? No gem has ever died because they spent time with me.... Unless you count my playthings but that's different."
He poured himself another drink and sat down.
"What's the harm Chip? I thought you said you'd give me a shot? Be a man of your word and sit down please. I've got food. Do you eat anything at all? Johnny here can make just about anything you can think of. Perhaps you'd like a non alcoholic drinks? Just name it and I can provide it. Just relax and enjoy yourself. Is that so difficult?"
He laid back in his seat and rested his feet on the table.
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
