"Awww, cute. So you are now a Diamond loyalist? You sure I am in the right universe?"
Morion laughed After all, he had plans to make gates to other realities, possible, alternate worlds^^ Who knows, mybe Morion had some sucess "So... your only friend is Light .And I guess Human, do you have some Human friends too? Ser Reginals is a friend, by default, so beside him"
The Smoky Quartz noded silently
"Light told me Howlite betrayel, that he gave a list of Gem names to the... hm... authorities. Homeworld "hunters". But I ought it was an exaggeration. Bit actually it fit nicely in the picture. There is still a Diamond on the Moon and lots of Gem down here who failed her Diamon. Like me. For some a list of potential rebel targets a nice opportunity to weaqsel her way back in a court, on a path paved by shards..."

"I am Chip... I think I still ... believe in Pink Diamond. It's hardwired in my gem too hard or something." the annoying voice was talking about it every time he even thought about not being a loyalist. Some annoying remain of who he was suppose to be. "I have ... contacts in Empire city. A bunch of kids who are my fans, they sent me information when Empire city is in danger. But they are... informants, not friend. And Ser Reginald is our beloved leader. The true emperor of Earth." it was common knowledge that cats ruled the Earth. "It's Howlite we are talking about. Only a fool would trust any information from him. I seriously doubt that anyone is taking the list seriously." the authorities couldn't be that stupid...
"Tell me about these.... tought and feelings you have about your Diamond. We should explore this in depth. Maybe there are some pre-programmed orders you don't know. It would be wise to do this kido, a little meditation, your personal journey in to the core of your mind and soul..."
"As for Howlite, yes, he was a Broken abberation, but still a Gem... don't froget, we are basically sentinent programs, and while Howlite was insane and erratic, violent monster, the base codes were the same and memory core. This is enough for a Peridot to capture him, extract this information and use it. Don't think like a human kiddo! In the case of Gems, think like a Gem. Anyhow, Gems dissapeared, Light told me, and your friends are gone too... I'm not saying Howlite is behind it, but the possibility is there.

"Bah, I can deal with my feelings. I can fight with whatever programming is left in my gem. I am Chip, the Rising Phoenix, the Eternal Flame and Protector of Empire City! Darn... I haven't used this since you left. I guess since I am not the poster gem for save Empire city I don't have to use them..." it was strange. He was so proud to be all of those titles. Now sometimes used Eternal flame.
"I suspect Howlite is corrupted. Whatever programming was there is long gone... and you know what? Let's never talk about him again. He is gone! So let him be gone. Forever. And if he returns... well we can blast him into the sun." Chip said adamantly. Only thinking about him made his gem boil...

"Well... it felt good being just me... just Chip. Most gems don't know me... after all Empire city is still considered part of your domain, so most gems are avoiding it. And it was refreshing, meeting new gems and just talking." he became stronger to get Morion proud of him. And to protect Empire city. But he barely trained since Morion left. "I have no idea... I have no great plans, I was just... living. Working on my garden, playing with Ser Reginald... and hunting monsters. You should see my collections. I have dozens of bubbled monsters now." he said. His cellar was looking magical with all those gems bubbled. If they would ever go free they would probably level Beach City... "Stop it... I am no emperor... I am one of the good gems..."

"Seems so. I heard many rumours about you. Some says you are still in M-tower, some that you left, but most think you faked your departure and you remain in shadows." he explained. It was hard for people to imagine their lord and protector disappearing. And people just loved to speculate. "Well, my base is super secret, but I think I can show you." well it wasn't really secret. It was a cabin on the outskirts of woods. It was nice and private but it was hardly super secret. He just didn't talk about it with others. "You are the one with plans... I am a gem of action. I had a similar dialogue with the Pink Padparadscha. I wasn't made to plan but to force my way through anything. Just blast a small continent away and problems go away with it." well he couldn't blast a small continent but hopefully he made his point
It was nice to be a shadow The Smoky Quartz listened to the little Fire Opal And nodded
"Yes, you are the Gem of action. With the element... sorry, chemical reaction of Fire in your heart you can't be anything else! So you have met a Pink Padparadscha Sapphire? We have another on Earth not just the Artisan in the Forge. Well this is trange indeed. Tell me about her! Everything you know kiddo! Please..."
The Smoky Quartz asked with a polite voice
"And as for blasting small continents, it is not so hard, once you tried it, you will love it! I am more of a manipulative and silent type, but do have a soft spot for mass destruction"

"I mean why they even call them elements? Water is a chemical substance, fire is a reaction, earth is organic matter and air is mixture of gasses... none of them are elements... it's frustrating." he said. Why people had to use such wrong terms? "Uhm... this Padparadscha is... uhm... like the a regular sapphire? She seems to be an envoy of Pink Diamond... I don't know what she is suppose to do on Earth but I met her few times... even helped her a bit. She doesn't fear to use the big guns though. She is a bit scary." he explained. He didn't know what to say. "I don't destroy things if I can avoid it." he said. He hated destroying things.
"Strange... a Pink Padparadscha. Sent by Pink Diamond or someone high ranking from Her court"
It was indeed interestin The Smoky Quartz pondered a bit about the possibilites
"So, she is Loyal Gem, not a Rebel, not a monster. She is here, because... reasons. You helped her... tell me about this help please!I am curious..."
He nodded "Maybe we could puzzle out what is her motivation! By the way, whats happened with that Warmachine? The Fusion Gaspeite? Herald of Pink Diamond? Tell me you didn't balsted her out of the solar system with a fire-punch..."
"So this Pink Padparadcha Sapphire like big guns... this is really strange..."
Guns were good, usefull in certain situation, but the Smomy Quartz preferred more ... civilized methods

"We were scouting an air temple together. It was fun, she turned into a lizard and couldn't turn back. But nothing interesting happened." it wasn't completely true, but mostly. "I have no idea what happened to the War machine. Hopefully she is long gone. And unfortunately I didn't have the opportunity to blast her away. She probably got eaten by some gem mutants or rogue shards." he didn't really care about the fusion. "Well Earth is strange place... with strange gems. Is that really surprise you still?" he asked. It seemed like Earth was magnet for broken things, cripples and prototypes. Barely any gems he met were what could be described as "normal". Perhaps gems were just more unique that he suspected
"Truned in to a lizard... Ahh, I see. Problems with the shapeshifting? Strange. You know, before my departure, I have studied several Gems. Remember when I said, Earth have a negative effect on Gems? Maybe some radiatron, or the Moon Goddess knwos what messing with the basecodes in our matrix... but this phenomenon is not unique case, several Gems I know had problems with shapeshifting, after spending a little time on Earth. Curious... but a problem for a nother day. This is a bit like the "ships falling from the sky around Beach City"-thing..."
He shook his head
"Yeah, I think you are right, after all that Fusion was an experiment. And every experiment eventually MUST end..."
"I am not really suprised. Always suspected Earth is a planet-sized laboratory for prototypes, weapon projects, asylum for the insane, testing field for everything new and basically expendable. And the "rebellion" is just a social experiment or purge the heretics from the Gem population. It would actually explain why Pink Diamond is up there with her fleet doing nothing. Remember my science projects? We watched them from behind a window. And were always ready tor terminate the experiments..."
The Smoky Quartz pondered a bit
"Anyhow, ultimately it not really maters, am I right?"
Post by Chip the Fire Opal on Feb 4, 2018 9:01:03 GMT
"Yeah I remember. The falling ship were my idea I think. And it's certainly possible. But I think this one was because she was unaccustomed to shape shifting. I can imagine a Highborn game had little use for it in the diplomacy circles. Or something like that." she at least claimed she wasn't skilled in this area. "Well I think we just talked about the fact that EVERYTHING must end sooner or later." he reminded Morion. And since experiments were a part of "everything" it was a bit obvious. "It certainly is possible. You should be careful though. Your ship didn't fall from the sky, but it might. And if whoever runs this experiments finds you... well they wouldn't be happy about you taking humans off the planet and coming back. You would be a rogue variable... and simplest way to keep your experiment pure is to remove it..." he warned Morion.
"Well yeah, a lot of Gems, while we are indeed a shapeshifting race, never really bothered with it. After all, the Diamonds designed .. or ordered them, and they made with a popuse, so in theory even without shapeshift, a Gem should be able to fulfill her duty"
The Smoky Quartz nodded
"Personally I have trained for decades, to be a good chameleon..."
He smiled to his young ward "Thank you for the warning, but you honestly thinks I came here without preaparations? I am prepared..."
Morion winked to the young Fire Opal
"Always better safe than sorry... but I guess you knew that. Then again, you were always a bit reckless. But you are now older and wiser. Grown up!"
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
