"Well I have to disagree with you, there are some gems, that are just pure evil... with no redeeming qualities whatsoever... most gems and humans are complicated... having both good and bad sides... but there are some, that are just bad..."
Howlite and Sulfur came to mind.
The next question surprised him a little.
"Dancing? Uhm... no, I have never danced before. There was no reason to do so... gems dance usually only when they want to fuse with each other... "
He was pretty sure he could dance if he wanted, but he was also sure that there was absolutely no reason to actually dance besides the distant possibility of a fusion. Especially because of the fusion Flurry's offer was.... unexpected.
"That's not true... nobody is really all bad... and if they look like it it's because something sad happened to them... not because they were always like that. "
Flurry listened to Chip talk about dancing. It was then that she realized that he probably didn't understand what she was talking about, which was both good and bad. Chip was a lot different than Howlite, Chip acted more like a gem, and Howlite was basically a human, who seemed to know a lot more about earth and humans than homeworld and gems. Still, at the same time Chip had assumed that she wanted to fuse! Whether or not that was true it was a very embarrassing misunderstanding.
"N-no! That's not it! " Flurry shook her head nervously. "I just wanted to dance...for fun! "

"Yeah, nobody started like that... but few changed that way... it can be because something sad happened... something broke them... scared everything good that once was there... and now they are just broken empty husks... trying to fill in the emptiness by hurting others... and unfortunately there is nothing we could do to help them..."
He explained. Howlite was just another example of this. Whatever he once was he was a monster now. He pretended, even to himself, that he could be a person again... but it was a lie. He was trying... but he couldn't succeed. And he was doing a lot off harm while trying...
"Well I never danced before... but I guess I can give it a try? I mean... what's the harm, right?"
"I disagree... " Flurry said quietly. "I think everybody can change...if I try hard enough, I can help... "
Flurry grinned, he had accepted.
"Yeah! That's the spirit Chip! " She stood in front of him. She rubbed the back of her head realizing now what she had gotten herself into. For a moment she thought about the correct position before moving into it. She placed one hand on his shoulder and the other in the air near him, already blushing a bit. "Um... now you take my hand...and put your hand on my hip... "
"Y-you kinda sway back and forth... it's really easy... " Flurry said, looking at the floor and breaking eye contact. Dancing was not a good idea! It was scary!

"I wish you were right... but I saw gems that were beyond any help before... "
Another good example was the crazy peridot, that was force-fusing shards, creating gem mutant drones from them. She was so deranged that nothing could reach her... she was perhaps even crazier than Howlite... if that was even possible.
When it came to dancing he was clueless, but he was a warrior and was quite good at copying the movements of his opponents, or in this case his friend. So he just mirrored what Flurry was doing, which was surprisingly easy.
"Uhm... is this good?"
He asked, as he was swaying back and forth as best as he could. He didn't see how this was in any way useful... but he was doing it for Flurry...
"Y-yeah! That's the way I've seen Teddy...I mean Howlite do it! It's really easy... but that's why it's fun... " Flurry said. She did however break away from the dance. She traded feet for a while, wringing her wrists. She looked around and seemed to be wondering if she should say her next thought. "Well... s-sometimes dancing is a lot more fun when you have music to dance to... that's another thing I learned from Teddy. He really likes music too... "
She paused and looked at him.
"Do you have any music? I left my mp3 back at the forge, and so I don't have any right now. " She kept averting eye contact, seeming more embarrassed than uncomfortable. A strong contrast to her usual bubbly self.

There was no going around it... he had to protect Flurry from her nativity...
"Flurry, please, stay away from Howlite... he is a monster. He is dangerous and unpredictable, he kills humans and gems... he is playing on a person, but he is a timed bomb... just waiting to explode and start killing everyone around him. You should really stay away from him, until we take care of him..."
He would have to kill Howlite sooner rather than later, before more lives are lost.
"Unfortunately I don't have any music with me... I rarely listen to music... I don't seem to be able to appreciate it the way humans can... "
He admitted. He recognised the pattern in music, but that was all it was for him, just a pattern without any meaning...
Flurry sighed. Dancing would have to wait. More people needed to know what kind of gem Howlite really was, not just who he used to be. She folded her arms and looked at him.
"Chip...he's really not like that...not anymore. He takes me to all of these awesome places and shows me all of these amazing things! It's really super if you've seen it... " She paused. "He's really trying to change... One time there was this guy who he wanted to kill and then I came and I was all like 'no!' and then we hugged and everything was good! Well...I really think you should give him another chance... he was made wrong and he can't help what he does... but he's gotten a lot better. "
Post by Chip the Fire Opal on Nov 4, 2017 18:52:24 GMT
Chip sighed heavily.
"Flurry... you want to see only the best in gems. It's a wonderful thing... and it's something I really like about you. And I real really wish you were right about this... but you aren't. Howlite is a monster, worse than ever. I gave him more chances than he deserves... in the last one he locked my and threaten me with death. I had to blast hole in his ceiling... "
He was direct with her, he didn't want to argue with her, but he needed her to understand. Howlite could never change, he proved that already. He was a monster... and he loved it. He didn't want to change, he just pretended like he did. Eventually he would hurt Flurry... he would hurt everyone...
"He's no better than you are! You don't even know what he's like, you don't know him at all! He was made to be a fighter by this crazy guy and he has no choice what he's like, and so the only people he can be friends with are people like me, who see him for who he really is! A good guy! I do see the best in people, and if I didn't then we wouldn't be friends! Because you aren't perfect either, nobody is, you don't wanna risk everything for a planet you obviously care about, and when I say things you act like I don't know what I'm saying! Teddy always listens to me and respects my opinions, even when I'm wrong! " She said. She sighed. "If I really only forgave people who deserved it... then I wouldn't have forgiven you Chip! "
Tears dripped from her eyes. Although she was angry, she seemed already very hurt, even to insult him.
"So please don't be so hard on him... you don't know what he's like at all... "
Post by Chip the Fire Opal on Nov 5, 2017 8:24:52 GMT
This was a little too much for Chip, he was nothing like Howlite. What she said was absurd.
"Oh is it so? I don't remember I've done anything, that would require a forgiveness... I lived my life without a guidance of any kind, yet I ended up protecting gems and humans alike... I saved countless lives and never taken any... Howlite is killing FOR FUN. Yeah, nobody is perfect... yet some of us manage to get though a tragedy without turning into a killing psychopath..."
He let go of Flurry, he was quite angry. This insult hurt him deeply, especially from Flurry. She was perhaps the only gem he ever felt something for. He stayed on Earth only for HER and she was now telling him, that he is no better than Howlite? He felt the fire deep inside him weakening for the first time in a long time.
"No, Flurry. I know EXACTLY who Howlite is, unlike you. Or is it ok to kill defenceless gems and human? Or to betray your friends? To threaten others for fun? To lead a criminal organisation? You forgot how he betrayed and sold out Light? How he betrayed the Crystal gems? He is a monster that only plays at being a person... he is danger to anyone and you are the only one who still refuse to see it."
His words were cold but adamant. He couldn't protect Flurry from the truth. And if she refused to leave her dream world now, she might never do it.
"Well maybe HE listens to what I say and doesn't treat me like I don't know what I'm saying! No matter what's going on he always stops and listens to me! You just tell me that you think I'm wrong, and you don't have any experience at all! You're only three years old! You know Teddy how he used to be, but now he's different! He takes me to all these fancy places and we meet new friends! He taught me how to fight and I actually saved him one time from a homeworld gem! When I couldn't summon my weapon he taught me to shoot with a slingshot... he's really great, and he`ll do anything for his friends. You can just keep pretending that you know everyone better than you do... and that everyone else is wrong, and that you know exactly what's right... but maybe you're wrong huh?! About Teddy? About me? " She then couldn't take the emotional stress anymore and covered her face with her hands. She started to quietly whimper, her pigtails shaking as she did.

"And yet you avoided my question... because you know, somewhere deep inside, that everything I'm saying is true. The fact that Howlite is a killer a betrayer and a monster. He treats you nice, because you are the only one he managed to fool with his behaviour. That's what he is doing... trying to fool you, trying to control you. If I am wrong about Howlite so is Light... so is Para, so is Morion... because we all saw him for what he really is... And yeah, you are right, I am a very young gem... but I don't have to be ancient to understand Howlite... because he and I have something in common. We were both betrayed by Homeworld... left to fend for ourselves. It would be so easy to choose what he chose - hate, anger, revenge. But I didn't... but perhaps you're right about something else, I might have been wrong about you."
He said. Flurry was behaving as a spoiled brat. Speaking without reason, avoiding what was unpleasant... and her insults were quite low and painful.
Flurry moved her hands from her face slowly. Tears stained her cheeks. She wiped her eyes and looked at him.
"Well... maybe you were! You just decided that I'm wrong...and you`ll never consider things another way! I guess...I guess I was wrong about you too! " Flurry turned and ran in the other direction, crying as she did. She hopped onto her cloud and flew on it. As she did, she rubbed her eyes on the cloud and blew her nose in it as if it were a tissue. Although she blew nothing into the pillow, as she was a gem, she had gotten into the habit of blowing her nose when she cried. In a few minutes she was out of sight.

Chip didn't say anything. He stood there a bit heartbroken. He just passed on the chance to leave with Morion, only to get betrayed by the very same person he stayed here for. Flurry was completely unreasonable, blinded by Howlite, somehow. He had no idea how could this monster fool her so easily... finally he just sighed and flew away. He made a choice to stay on Earth and it was too late to change that. He made the choice and he had to live with it. He was flying to his new home, the small cabin he bought in Beach city. It was a nice house... a calm one. And right now Chip needed some calm... because he wanted to set something on fire...

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
