"Well I came here uninvited... I don't want to bother you. But I want to thank you, really. You were a big help. I feel much better. Just don't worry about me, some small darkness can't bother me, after all, I have Light on my side."
He smiled. This really looked like a beginning of a nice friendship. "But I have this feeling we will see each other again, soon. But until then be careful, especially around Broken gems. I was talking with Howlite recently and he is really unstable. If you meet him it might be safer to run..."
He warned Pearl about the maniac, since he started talking about them. Fortunately Chip didn't meet Sulfur lately and he wasn't sorry at all...
Light blushed a little. It felt great to know that Chip enjoyed staying here. "Ohh don't worry about this, I wasn't doing anything special anyway and no problem. I just talked a little."
He was staring at him for a while. Pearl didn't get a joke. He than looked around and again at Chip. At the he laughed "Haha, ohhhh you mean? Hahaha" He pointed at himself. Ibi started to eat Light's hair. For some reason the creature enjoyed eating the hair made out of hard light. Pearl was wondering if the other birds also enjoy it. No other bird did that before. Or maybe Light's hair just tasted good... gem would maybe test it if not the fact that he does not like the idea of eating. However it did feel good in touch.
"Ohhh... of course, I will try to avoid them. It is not like they know that I am here." Light freaked out a little. Howlite was acting like he was trying to change. Than he heard that he let some Quartz attack the Crystal Gems. And now Light heard that he is still really unstanle. Light didn't know what to think about this anymore. Howlite wasn't acting like a gem... he was acting like two weird creatures trapped in a gemstone, one creepier than another. Pearl was thinking that it would probably be better if Howlite just dussapeared from his life. But that gem needed help, leaving him alone could cause more terror.
Light gasped "Ohhh! Wait a moment please!" He went to his room and opened a chest. He grabed something and come back to the young Opal. Light was holding some sort of brown box. He handeled it to Chip "This is a comunicator, I arleady have one... use it to contact the Forge, Lady Para or I should answer. It also has got a torch function. I thought it might help you..."

Chip smirked a little. It was nice that his bad pun was appreciated. It was also nice to know, that he didn't bother Pearl, though that might be only good manners on Pearl's side. But he seemed sincere.
"If you want, we could go monster hunting. I learned about a place I would like to hit a certain place... that's full of terrible monsters, mutants and other dangers beyond imagination. I could use a monster hunter friend."
He offered. If Flurry went monster hunting with him, why not Pearl? It might be fun... "Oh and I have communicator already. It's a speciality from Morion. It servers both as human and gem communicator. It's quite handy, fireproof and quite durable. I like it."
And it could also contact Morion... wherever he was...
Light didn't expect such an offert. Light? Monster hunting? That would be... new. Light wasn't the best fighter and some corrupted gems were really strong. That it is whe wasn't sure about this idea. But drom the other side he couldn't spend his whole life in the Forge. One of the Crystal Gems responsibilities was taking care of corrupted gems. That way the wouldn't hurt humans. Light also didn't want to let down Chip, their relationship started to look so great. Pearl made some sort of fake smile, it was easy 5o spot sweat on his face "Ha ha ha... monster hunting? Uhhh... sure! There is no problem! I can totally do this one day... no problem... heh..."
Light rised an eyebrow. Did Morion give Chip a comunicator so they could talk even now? He could have also left one for him and Lady Para. But it was true that he had much better relationship with Chip than them. He looked closely at the device "I see. Can you contact us eith it though? Could I take a look if it is not possible?"

Chip just grinned. When he did that, he always looked just as another wee lad, very human, very child-like. For him, monster fighting was just another game. He took it seriously enough, but not to the point of mortal combat that it was.
"Neato, there is a lot of corrupted gems, that need bubbling. Not only for our sake, but for their as well... we can't just let them run rampart across the planet... I'm starting to have a pretty nice collection..."
It was few dozens gems now. Mostly quartzes. Those very big and scary, powerful opponents. "I'm pretty sure I can contact anyone I want with it... and sure, you can look at it, just don't tinker with it... I'm reasonably sure, that it would explode... most likely taking the whole forge with it..."
It wasn't exactly confirmed, but Chip suspected Morion to be careful...
"I guess... I have no idea how does corruption works. But it doesn't look like those gems enjoy their terrible forms. Bubbling them looks like the best option for now before we will find a way to help them." Light looked kinda sad at the floor. It looked like he has been thinking about something. Light and Para has been working on a special army. This army was powered by corrupted gem. It was a little bit against the moral rules. But those gems might save a lot of rebels from a terrible fate.
After a short while Light come back to relality "I have no reason to don't believe you. Be careful with those gems of yours."
Light took the device from Chip's hand just when he got a permission. However after that weird comment he looked with schocked eyes at the Fife Opal. He than gave him back the comunicator "I am not sure if that is the good thing to have... it might blow up because of an accident."
He shook his head "I don't think it is possible for a simple small comunicator to connect to any place on Earth. But Morion did hzve some modern Homeworld technology... Maybe we should check it than before you will go?"

"I was trying to heal those gems, but without an effect. Healing shrine don't help them either... until a cure is found, it's probably safest to bubble them, however sad it might be. I know I wouldn't want to be bubbled for years... decades... or longer."
As far as he knew being bubbled was like sleeping. They were "frozen". It was certainly better, then being destroyed... or being a danger to everything on this planet.
"It's perfectly safe, as long as nobody tinkers with it... so it would be best to let it be. But as far as I know, it connects to human communication network the same way their communicators do. And it also uses some super advance gem tech to be able to communicate across big distances and with other gem tech. But I know very little of gem tech..."
"I would prefer to be bubbled for 348293 years than being free and corrupted. Atleast that is what I think. Those gems... They suffer. Sadly we don't know a lot about t. Maybe I and Para will find something, we have been working with them lately." There was a small change. and maybe by using them as computer's mother board they would act normal? Maybe they would prefer this than being a corrupted monster? Those questions will probably be answered soon.
Light noded "So maybe you could try to use it? We would know if it really works. If you want to of course." Light didn't want to sound bossy. It felt weird for him to tell others what to do.

"What an oddly specific number. Fortunately I don't intent to get corrupted, not that anyone could stop me if I did... I'm pretty sure that I could heal them, if I ever master my healing... since it's healing through fire, burning away what isn't part of the gem... it should burn away corruption... in theory..."
He said. He didn't even know if he told Light that he was a healer, probably not... but it didn't matter, his healing was still quite weak...
"The communicator works flawlessly. I use it all the time. I called Flurry with it several times, I bought a... product from the word wide web with it... it works like a charm."
"Wait... You can HEAL gems? That is a really rare ability to have! I thought only Rose Quartz have it. And Flurry... However I never saw her using it." Light didn't except this. Rebelion lacked profesional medics. Chip really would be a great member, just like his old mentor. However Pearl wasn't sure if it would actually heal corruption.
"Of course... No need to check it." It was going so well! Pearl didn't want to destroy this moment. They were getting closer, it was better to don't force it. What if Chip got mad?! It would ruin everything. However Light had a different opinion. It was better to check it right now, the technology in Forge could have been a little bit different than the one that Chip had.
Light looked around. His expression was rather neutral, maybe a little bit sad "So... are you going to visit us more often?" Ibi closed his eyes and fall asleep on Pearl's arm.

Chip raised his hand. He concentrated really hard, it took him few seconds, but finally a beautiful golden flame appear around his hand. The heat that was coming out of it was pleasant and the light was soothing.
"I am not very good with it just yet... it's much easier to blast things apart then to heal them... so far I can only heal gem that are poofed. But I'm pretty sure I should be able to heal even unpoofed gems, no luck so far."
The fire disappeared as Chip closed his fist. He touched his gem and a bubbled gem appeared in his hand. It was smaller then most gems.
"I was able to heal this one... from 4 shards... making him whole again..."
It looked a lot like his gemstone, but with some blue mixed in. Chip quickly hid it again.
"Well I might visit you if you want. Then again you can feel free to visit me. I might have bought a small cottage on the outskirts of Beach city... but don't tell anyone, it's a secret..."
Light's eyes changed to stars. Light never thought that something so dangerous can be so pretty at the same time "So.. shiny..."
Pearl become a little bit worried after Fire Opal's comment about blasting things "Ohhh I see, maybe you will train it later, on the outside? You don't want to put someyhing on fire, do you." Suddenly Ibi spoke during his nap time "PUT SOMETHING ON FIRE!" Light looked a little bit worried wt the parrot "Hmmm... no Ibi, no fire in home."
He blinked few times. Light couldn't believe what he just heard "You... you were able to help a nearly shattered gem?! How is it even possible?!"
Pearl put a finger on his mouth and made a small bow "Noone will know." Ibi spoke again even though he was still sleeping "SMALL COTTAGE ON THE OUTSKIRTS OF BEACH CITY!"
Light looked with wide open eyes at the parrot and turned back to Chip "Don't worry! Noone believes him anyway!"

"No fire in the house? You know you're living inside a volcano, don't you? There is a lot of fire all around... even I'm a wee bit scared and I have "fire" in my name... "
If this place got unstable, it would be one hell of a boom. The chance of that happening was most likely insignificant, but even so it was a little disconcerting.
"A wee bit of tinkering... a lot of spent energy... and unhealthy dose of determination... "
He did everything... because those shards were the ones chipped apart from his gem. When the healing shrine made him complete there was no chance to incorporate them in himself... so he found all of them... and healed them. "Hey bird! You better keep this a secret or else!"
"It is different. This lava here is controlled, there is no way it could hurt anyone just like that, you would need to touch it. But your fire... I am sorry but that is the different thing. I don't know how does your powers work. But Rubies' fire powers get stronger if they are emotionallu unstable. It makes those small gems stronger than they look." He spoke while showing with his hand the lava. It was just a decoration, light source and was used to make things. It wouldn't harm anyone just like that. Well.. the air inside the Forge was unhealthy for Ibi. Luckly Light programmed his gem room so the small bird could have a fresh air all the time.
Pearl raised an eyebrow "unhealthy? Something happened?" He was probably worring too much, just like usually.
Light didn't understand the concept of joking. And Ibi was really important for him. Even though he would die in just 20 years... organic life doesn't function for a long time in general.
Pearl hugged the parrot and took a step back while looking at Chip with a little bit frightened face.

"Fire is like that... if you control fire it's part of you... so when you get emotional, you fire get's all pumped up. I think I have that in common with rubies. But you don't have to worry. The golden fire heals... it can't burn things up... it's warm, yes, but in pleasant way..."
He explained. While his regular fire could easily burn... well pretty much anything, the golden fire was perfectly safe. That was it's entire purpose... and also why it was so difficult to use it. One had to had a perfect control over it.
"Nothing major happened, I might have poofed once while doing it, but that was nothing..."
Since he got healed reforming wasn't a problem. Before it was so painful... but no longer.
"Don't worry, I would never harm anyone... gem, human or animal..."
Howlite: It is good to be back

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
