Flurry realized that Chip did want her to get something. While Flurry wanted to be selfless and not get something for herself, she realized that it would be counter productive to do so. Chip wanted to get her something, like she wanted to be selfless. She decided that it wouldn't be selfish to accept his gift. He was giving it to her! In fact, it would be selfish to try to be nice and refuse the gift. Not to mention that refusing the gift would be a regretful decision. She smiled and pointed to the pug plush.
"Uh, I think that one is really cute... could you get me that one please? " She said with a grin, trying to look as grateful as she could.

Chip put all of the tickets on the table.
"I would like those two plushes please. And that plush toy for cats too. You can keep the rest."
He said. He felt little bad for winning so much by kinda cheating. Well ok, it wasn't cheating, he did it fairly. But the machine was built for humans. Humans just didn't have such a quick reflexes... yet the higher levels of this game were incredibly difficult even for him, so for humans it would probably be impossible. Or extremely time consuming, taking a lot of training and try and error.
"So, we have our rewards, what now? I don't think we should play more games with those tickets... otherwise that guy might through us out... he was already frowning at us..."
"Well if we played any more games we might take all of the tickets from the whole arcade! This is enough for today! " Flurry giggled. She hugged the Pug Plush. The plush was bigger than she was, and she giggled as it flopped around. She made a cloud and expanded it to fit the Plush. The cloud moved alongside Flurry as she walked, carrying her plush as if it were a wagon. "So uh... do you wanna go on a roller coaster now? They're crazy fun! "
Flurry pointed to a tall rollercoaster. It was called the Flameblaster. The roller coaster had many fire designs on it and several screaming humans were on it.
"So what do you think? " Flurry asked with a big grin. "Do you wanna give it a try? "

"Yeah, you're right. Plus we don't have enough space to carry more rewards anyway."
He smiled. The plush he chose was big, bigger then his head, but not quite so enormous as Flurry's. And he stored it in his gem anyway. He liked to have both his hands free.
"Well I do like the name of that coaster... so yeah, sure. Sounds like a blast."
Chip liked fire. That was hardly surprising given his nature. But lately he was trying to explore the part of fire that was healing. The nice thing about fire was, that it could give life as easily as take it... it was quite versatile. It could apparently make roller coaster cooler too... "But what about your plush? It's so big..."
Somehow he doubted they could take it with them...
Flurry ignored chip and gleefully charged to the ride. Since there was currently no line she did not have to wait. She smiled and hugged her plush.
"You have room for three? " She said with a smile, hugging the plush. The man chuckled and nodded, understanding the gesture. He pointed toward the plush.
"Make sure you belt him in securely." The man said sternly, but he was smiling.
"Thank you mister! " Flurry chirped happily. She ran to the nearest car with her plush, giggling as she did. She belted it in beside her, surprisingly snug. It seemed immovable. Still, Flurry held onto it. She turned toward chip and patted the other seat next to her, gesturing for him to come and fill it.

Flurry was unstoppable force of crazy ideas. Of course she wanted that plush to go with them on roller coaster... he stored his plush in his gem and followed Flurry.
He sat down next to Flurry and their new friend and secured himself in the seat. Since he could fly he doubted this will be that exciting, but it might be amusing at least. And with the fair it could also be effective. "I hope your friend won't catch fire from all that fire that should be here..."
But if the fire could set the plush aflame it might as well set humans on fire... and that probably wasn't good for business. As far as he knew humans were quite inflammable.
Flurry giggled and was about to explain that the designs weren't real fire when the roller coaster started. The car dashed across the track, picking up speed. Flurry cheered as the wing messed with her hair and the ears of her plush flapped. She hugged the plush that was "seated" between them and watched in suspense as they reached the top of the roller coaster. The first and largest drop awaited them. The cart slowed, and then barreled down the other side. Flurry screamed, but she was smiling. At the end of the drop the car slowed. She turned to Chup with a grin. "That was awesome! "
Flurry's eyes were wide with excitement. She seemed to really enjoy the roller coaster.

The roller coaster started. At start it was fairly slow, but quickly taking up speed. Flurry seemed to enjoy it. For Chip it wasn't all that exciting. Mostly because he was used to battle flying monsters, which was far more dangerous and also quick. But it was a wee bit enjoyable. And he didn't want to ruin it for Flurry. He hugged the plushie as well as the coaster was ascending slowly. The final drop was actually quite fun. It was too bad, that the fire wasn't real, but it was fun nonetheless.
"You were right, this was fun. Heh this is what I like about Earth... gems would never invent something like this. Because it has no purpose, just fun."
"Well yeah... back on homeworld nobody really liked to make stuff just for fun, they only wanted to get stuff done y'know? " Flurry mumbled. She smiled at him. "I know that a lot of gems think that way... I spent a really long time in homeworld...but I never really thought that gems shouldn't have fun... why do we work so hard if we've got nothing to look forward to? "
She sighed and started to twirl one of her pigtails.
"That's why I really care about earth... it's special to me and it's special to the crystal gems. I don't care what homeworld does... I'd never forgive myself if I quit without a fight! " She smiled and pumped her fist. She turned to Chip. "Still... I don't like to talk about scary stuff... why don't you tell me a little bit about you? "

"Homeworld is like that..."
Was the only thing he said. It would be so difficult to come to Homeworld after he was truly free. Living only to serve, doing just what he would be told. Being a Homeworld gem sounded like a dreary and dull experience.
"I agree with you. The Earth is special and a lot of gems see it too. That's why so many gems are trying to protect it from Homeworld..."
It was nice to see if nothing else. Though the next request surprised him a little.
"Uhm... what about me do you want to know? There is not much to tell you know. But ask me and I will answer it..."
He said. He never liked to talk about himself, but for Flurry he would.
Flurry put her arms behind her back and leaned forward, smiling gingerly. "Wellll, I don't know anything specific I'd ask, but you are always kinda mysterious... " She summoned a cloud and simultaneously jumped, moving her plush underneath her. She fell onto the cloud the plush landing first. The cloud was low to the ground so it kind of looked like she was riding on her stuffed animal. "I just wanna know some things about you, you seem a lot more interesting than I am... but usually interesting people had sad stories... like Teddy or that green guy... So only tell me what you want to, I just wanna know more about you! "
She turned toward him while laying down on the plush, hugging it with her arms and legs.

"I am mysterious?"
Chip almost started to laugh. He was very opened about his life. There was no reason for him to lie.
"There really isn't that much to me... born defective, survived, was trained by the biggest assassin there ever was... and stayed happy and positive despite everything... I think that is me in a nutshell..."
It was funny that he was able to summerise his life in one sentense, and not really that long one. Sure, there were some interesting stories... but he told Flurry some of them already. He was flying above Flurry as he was talking, doing slow circles around her.
"I am only few years old you know... so there wasn't enough time to be interesting..."
"You weeere mysterious to me... " Flurry said with a frown. She looked at Chip while he spoke, taking it in. "Well...I don't know what defective means... Teddy says he was defective, but he seems alright to me! I think that it just means you aren't supposed to like them on homeworld, when they're really super cool in person. "
She jumped into the air and summoned her cloud under her and floated around him joining his circle, she closed her eyes and grinned widely, showing her teeth.
"Well...you're a super lot more interesting than me, and I`m super old! I'm like... three times as old as a human! " She stopped and looked at him. "If it's okay, wanna tell me about this assassin dude, he seems important to you... "
Post by Chip the Fire Opal on Oct 24, 2017 16:42:39 GMT
"Well... I was chipped before I came from the ground... a big piece of my gem was missing and with it a part of what should have be me. I managed to get my gem healed... but the information that was in it is gone forever... but I already told you that once, didn't I? I should't really look like this... I should be big and scary..."
He explained. He hated is intended form and he never wanted to take it ever again. "Well the "assassin dude" saved my from a monster that would have shatter me... he helped me, he trained me to be a better fighter... he was my friend and mentor... he left to save a lot of humans from Homeworld..."
"I guess what I think is right, nobody is bad all around! He does work with homeworld...but he wants to help people too... It gets easy to think something bad about someone, when they really have good in them too!" Flurry then suddenly started to think about Howlite, and how he looked dangerous for a while, but not after she met him. She also remembered something he said and her face turned light blue. She looked away from Chip and started moving slower. "Hey, Chip I don't guess you ever did a dance... like the humans do... I try to dance sometimes...and it's really fun... so do you wanna dance? I can show you how...if you don't know... "

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
