"Believe me, you wouldn't like to be there. Earth is much more... alive and fascinating." Light heard once the stories about the gems who flew from different planets to Homeworld. He was afraid that Chip would like to go there to meet gems like him. Luckly it wasn't going to happen.
"Okay... it is your choice after all." It was normal that he wanted to learn more about it first. But it didn't really matter anyway. Chip was ready to protect his friends and humans. He was also ready to fight against his own race. He was a CG arleady, no matter what.
Light laughed "It is impossible to don't agree with you here. That bird really is adorable." Ibi than flew and landed directly at the top of Light's head. Gem just looked at the animal with mother like look. He than come back to his chair and joined Chip again "I probably don't look serious, do I?"

"While I believe, that Homeworld has it's charms as well, I much prefer a world teeming with life, from a dead skeleton of a world, filled with Spires..."
Which was exactly what they wanted to turn Earth into. Yet another dead world, spawning legions of gems, everything that made it unique wiped out from universe. Such a terrible waste of potential. And with such terrible destruction he should've believe, that diamonds were perfect... yeah, sure, whatever... "But until then there is no reason why we shouldn't be friends."
He said. The truth was, that Chip hated fighting other gems... but with most of them having been gemwashed by diamonds there was no avoiding it. Yet even though Chip hold a small hope, that Pink Diamond will make it better somehow. She was the best among Diamonds... she had to see, how great Earth was...
Light smiled softly "While I need to say that this planet is extremly messy and unorganized... it is still better than our HomeWorld. It would be a shame if it become just the another colony." There were a lot of gems arleady and it looked like the gem race was probably the most advanced and the biggest race that ever existed. But Light could be wrong. He was a pearl, he didn't know about the universe as much as Sapphires or Diamonds. Not to mention he was just an 11 years old gem. It is extremly young if you compare it to the 1000000 years old gems.
He lauged a little "Opal and a Pearl? I wonder what would they say in my old workplace. But yes... there is no reason at all. And It is quite a honor to be your friend."
Ibi jumped from Light's head and sit on the table again. Light petted the bird with his 2 fingers "I am not sure what I can give you... Lady Para is much better at giving gifts. But if you need a help with something or you want to talk with me... I will always find time for this." It was actually a pleasure to talk with him. It has been a long time since someone came to talk with Light. This probably helped both of them. Light felt like they understand each other more now.
Light thought of Lady Para again. His smile vanished "Do... you also wonder what would happen if you didn't meet this one person? The person that changed your life? Just asking..."

"That's the funny thing... on Homeworld, everyone is just a tool. But here on Earth we aren't tools, we're person. Yes, on Homeworld I might've been an important soldier, perhaps even some kind of elite gem, I would be a very, very important tool... I think I enjoy being ME, which is something I couldn't be there... so it really doesn't matter if you're pearl or sapphire or fire opal, because we could choose who we are, or who we want to be friends with."
He never knew anything but this kind of freedom, but just the thought about the strict caste system was scaring him.
"Gift are nice, but not important. But you know the same thing goes both ways, right? If you ever need some muscles, or just a Eternal flame, or just need to talk with someone, you can give me a call. I'll be here in a jiffy."
He was honest about it. He was going to help every single one of his friend if they needed.
"Well, if I never met Morion I would be shattered right now... when he met me, I was still chipped, I couldn't control my powers very well, I could barely fight... and a powerful monster was hunting me... he saved me. He told me, that one day I'll be strong enough to help others like he did help me. I thought he was just saying that, but he was right all along... he always has been..."
Light didn't expect such wise words. Opal wasn't even in Homeworld. It looks like Morion taught him something. But that old quartz was still a loyalist... weird, really weird. Light wasn't sure how to respond to this. He just smiled "I quess you are right. But it is not easy to forget about this place. Even if you have been there only for a short moment."
"I am not sure if I want to worry you... but thanks anyway, I will remember this." Light was spending most of his time in Forge... and he wasn't sure if he will be able to call the Opal during battle. But it was still worth to remember this
"Morion will be remembered as a great person, a person that helped humans, gems and our rebelion. Even if his actions were controversial sometimes." Morion was the one who gava Para... a power sorce for her experiments.

"I believe it can't be easy. But you're strong, you'll manage. And if you have any troubles... well that's what friends are for."
He smiled at Light. It was a warm smile. Everything was easier with friends around. Heck, he felt much better after speaking with a friend for short while.
"Trouble me? Bah, don't worry about that. I'm a survivor, I'll survive everything. And I would be happier if you let me help you, instead of worrying if there is something bothering you."
"You're right, Morion was great... he was surely unique... but he's gone... we're not... now it's our job to help humans, gem and your rebellion. And I think that if he thought we would be unable to do that he wouldn't leave us... "
It was really hard to forget about Homeworld. But he couldn't whine, some pearls were living there for nearly 1000 years while he was there only 10 years. He smiled softly, once again he really don't know what could he say. It was one of the first time when he was talking about emotion. He alsk blushed a little at Chip's compliment "Thanks."
He laughed a little "You really are confident about your strenght! If you say so, I know which gem should I call." However Light still wasn't sure about this. He was a hero. Saving people is his job, it is more important than cheering a pearl.
Chips' words did make sense, Pearl noded "Nothing will stop us!" Ibi reapeted some words he heard "Friends will stop us!" Light couldn't help but laugh at Parrot's comment.

"I was trained by the best... but we Fire Opals are made to survive everything. I doubt that most gems could survive missing a big part of their gem before emerging from the ground... and it's important to be confident. Not overconfident though... "
He was overconfident few times. He got impaled by several tubes, shot by laser, exhausted himself to the point of poofing. But he survived everything so far. "You know... there is one way that might help you get a little more confident. Even develop some skills... but it would be very dangerous..."
He mentioned completely spontaneously. He was surprised of what he was just suggesting. He had no idea where this idea came from. Morion wouldn't like it at all...
"Wait... you survived such a thing?! Hho-hooowww...?" It actually was a suprise. Light still didn't know a lot about Chip's past. It was probably not an easy life. Light actually spotted that a lot of gems on Earth have some sort of problems. All of them are defects, prototypes, corrupted, have more than one personality, are haunted holkgram projectors... were there any normal gems? He could only thought about Bloody, Flurry, Blue and Flint at that moment.
"Huh?" He could not think about something that could help. He got a little bit frigtened when Chip mentioned that it will be dangerous.
"WHHHHAAAT?!" He got so suprised that he felt with his chair he was sitting on. Ibi look at Chip and repeated Light when the gem was lying on a ground "whhhhaaaat?"

"As I said, I was designed that way. Fire Opals are extremely difficult to create... took ridiculous amounts of resources. If would be shame if such gem would be destroyed by let's say being caught in Crystal gem sabotage of the Kindergarden, having part of it's gem chipped off... plus I think there was some major luck involved..."
"I never told you why I call myself Chip?"
He asked. He told the story so many times he kinda expect everyone to know by now. It was amusing to see Pearl react to his proposal. He expected him to freak out a little, but he didn't expect the parrot to repeat the world. With that Chip just burst into laughter...
"Well... not really. We didn't really spend a lot of time with each other. That is why I was suprised that you are here." Light thought it was just a cool name given for him by Morion. Humans like to make for each other new names so they can feel special. Light also did this, it would be weird to say "Light Mocha Pearl" instead of "Light" all the time. It is a really long name.
Light made a poker face, he looked kinda annoyed. But at the same time he was on the floor, Chip couldn't see it ^^ "I am fine! Don't worry about me! My gem is still in one piece." Ibi repeated some words "Worry about gem!"
Light stood up and cleaned this mess. He was blushing while placing ghe chair on the right place. He cough and his face turned back to normal. He poke, it semmed like is unsure about this "Do you... really think it is a good idea?" The parrot repated "Good idea!" Light didn't expect this! "Hey! On what side are you...?"

"Well I tell you the sad and tragic story about my some other time, but it's really sad."
He made a little joke out of it, though it wasn't at all funny. But he was finally able to make fun out of it. It felt a little refreshing actually.
"I never was worried, I'm pretty sure this wouldn't hurt you in any way. Just as fusion... well I never done it before... but it might be interesting. And since I'm quite powerful our fusion should be like mega powerful... so you would know how it feels... and how to control power and all that good stuff. Might help you..."
Chip shrugged carelessly. He wasn't worried about it. All the stuff that Morion warned him about was probably just a scarecrow...
"I see..." Light wasn't going to ask for details. He also had a pretty rough life and didn't like to talk about it.
The idea of fusing... Light was a prototype. It wasn't his purpose! And who knew what would happen!? Light never heard of a fusion that was made out of a prototype. Light was just worried, what if he broke Chip? Gem biology was really complicated. Not a lot of gem how it works and Pearl wasn't one of them. The thought that he would make Chip's life even worse, it was just terrible! Light could never do that to him!
Light spoke, he had a pretty emotionless voice "No..." He continued with his normal voice "I don't think I am ready. I never did that before, like you. Maybe another time..."
Post by Chip the Fire Opal on Jul 26, 2017 22:11:35 GMT
Chip once again shrugged carelessly. He expected this kind of response.
"Fair enough. I didn't mean we should do it right now anyways, but if you ever decided you want to try... well I'll be there. Or, if you think it is too crazy idea then that's fair too."
He smiled. When Chip tried to fuse with Morion that one time it didn't go that well. Morion knew it would go that way, he did it only to show Chip what terrible inner demons were hidden inside Morion. He also warned Chip, that fusion might be dangerous for him. That was a long time ago, and Chip was sure, that he could do it now.
"Perhaps I should go... after all I surprised you here... but it was good talk, I feel much better now."
"Okay..." The idea of fusing... he wasn't on homeworld anymore, he could do that. but he was still worried about Chip and himself. It would be btter if he never had to fuse with anyone. That would be better for everyone. But at the same time he wanted to know how it feels like. It sounds liek such a great thing. You can be with someoen you like, you are stronger... Bit sometimes it is better to not try new things, even if they sound great.
"Ohhh... arleady? Well if you want to, you probably have a lot of responsibilities. It was a pleasure to talk with you, I also feel better." He led Chip to the exit, Ibi was siting on Light's shoulder. The parrot suddenly made a noise "Bye bye!" Light smirked "Yeah, bye bye. Take care of yourself. This door is always opened for everyone. Except broken gems... and some weird gems... But you can come!" He opened the door "it is dark arleady. You won't get lost?" He sounded a little bit worried.
Melody: how are you doing? Are you going to make a character in here?

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
