It was some time since he's lase seen Light. Not since the fight with Howlite. It was a weird event on it's own but the strangest part was the ... ending. They didn't talk after it, mostly because for a few moments there was no need to talk. They understood each other even without talking. But he couldn't stop thinking about it. He wanted to give Light some space and time, but Chip couldn't wait forever, he needed to talk with him.
He didn't warp to Forge, he decided to fly there. One reason was that he needed to think, the second was, that he wasn't sure if Para didn't finally install some defensive measures. Eating a face full of laser wasn't something he was really looking forward to. He landed in front of the Forge, finding it opened as usually. He slowly step inside with shield in his hand. It could protect him as well as show, that he has something from the forge master. "Light? Are you there?" his voice was echoing through the Forge.
Light was in his gem room. He seemed to work at something. There were some bags with things inside. The Pearl himself seemed to worry about something, like he was going to run away. Or like he coudn't stop thinking about something.
As soon as Chip entered the Forge, the golem activated. Big machine started to slowly approach Chip to than scan him and see if he is in his database. Light heard it and left his room to check what was going on. "Vol! Pacifist mode please!" The golem stopped moving and started to come back to the place where she was originally sitting. "Of course."
Light seemed to look tired but the were no drastic changes overall "Yes Chip, how can I help you?"

It really seemed that they finally build some sort of defence. Namely a big hulking golem thingie. Chip raised the shield to defend himself, since Para and Pearl wouldn't be happy if he burn it into a dust. Fortunately Light stopped the thing before it could attack. "Hey Light. Well... uhm... we didn't exactly speak much after... the fight. And I wanted to see if you're ok and... you know." he was a bit nervous for some reason. They didn't exactly speak about Howlite... or about what saved the cursed pebble. They didn't talk at all after the fusion. And he felt like he needs to talk about it! "Are you fine? You look... tired." was something bothering him? Or were there some troubles?
Light made a fake smile "Well of course I am, we are finnaly free from that gem." Pearl raised his eyebrow "And...?" Being fused felt... amazing. He could feel like all of his current abilities and skills were upgrated to the maximum. He felt huge and pretty and funny and confident and... simply wonderfull. But it was wrong, he shouldn't do it again. He could have forget who he really is. Being not yourself just felt wrong.
He fixed his hair "Yeah, I have been just busy lately, that is all. Nothing to worry about... nothing at all." After a moment he spoke again, he sounded a little bit concerned "What about you?" Chip usually looked more alive. Yes, he was often pretty emotionless. But this time it looked like he really wanted to talk. Light didn't see himself as a right person to talk about feelings and things like that. But maybe Chip wanted to talk about the Light Opal.

Chip was standing there. It seemed like Light was perfectly ok. So was just it just him? Thinking about the fusion? Did Light brushed it aside so easily? He opened himself completely to Light, he rarely had any secrets before, but with the fusion... "Uhm... was busy. With things..." he said. The fact was he spent most of his time just flying, hunting monsters and protecting Empire city. He actually wasn't all that busy at all. He wasn't sure how he should start talking about it. He always wanted to try fusion and when he finally did he couldn't stop thinking about it. He stopped being Chip... and yet he was Chip... and something more. He felt more powerful, more stable and he could control his rage perfectly. It was invigorating...
"Ohhh... I see..." Light didn't really know what to do or what to say. But it seemed like Chip was concerned about something. He wanted to talk with him about it. It seemed like a good thing to do. But he also couldn't let him know about... about... nevermind. Pearl had to avoid topics about him
Light thought that Chip might be more worried about the fusion than Pearl's state. He decided to continue the talk "So... did you like it? I mean fusing..." It still was weird to think about it. Not a long time ago he was on Homeworld. And there, the fusion between two different gems was a crime. But back than, he fused like it was nothing.

"Yeah... it was... very..." he fell quiet for a moment. How to explain it. "It was so strange. I stopped being myself... but I didn't mind it. It felt incredible. I could control my temper I felt powerful... more powerful and... more whole?" he tried to explain. All what wasn't there felt like it was for a moment. "I felt like we could blast star ships from the orbit if we wanted... and not with effort like normally, but easier. It was... indescribable." he had to felt the same. "What about you? You seemed... quiet after we smoked Howlite..." he asked. Was it difficult for Light? After all Howlite was his friend for some time. Chip never trusted Howlite, never!
Light sighed. He just felt that Chip enjoyed being a fusion. He didn't mind though. "It was an interesting experience indeed. But at the same time it felt weird." He looked at the wall, he was trying to fing right words "What if we never unfused after that? Would we... dissapear? Our memories, personalities... we weren't Chip and Light anymore, we were a new person. At that time, we didn't exsist. It is not like we were in the control, some weird force was controling us, it was Light Opal. And what if Light Opal wouldn't like to unfuse?"
Pearl wasn't sure how does it work. It was the first time he fused. But the fusion seemed to act like a new being. And it was hard to predict the character of the fusion.
"I don't think we should ever do that again, unless there will be no other way."

"I don't know. I didn't feel myself but I felt myself in... us. If I wanted I felt like I could break the fusion at any time. And the Light Opal wasn't either of us, yet it was both of us." he tried to describe it. Light had to feel the same as he did. Or was he lost in Light Opal? Chip was a strong gem, it was possible, that his conscience was too dominant. He didn't felt like it, but it could be possible. "Well... if you feel like it. There is little we can't do on our own after all." he tried to smile. It seemed like for Light it wasn't a good experience. Chip wasn't sure how to feel about it.
Light didn't want to sound too melancholic. While fusing was weird and felt wrong because of the rules in Homeworld, it was still one of the greatest feelings he ever had. But that in a way was also a problem, nothing is perfect. It felt unrealistic to believe that fusion was nothing more but a great feeling. "It is not like I didn't like it. Being a part of Light Opal felt incredible. I was more confident, stronger, wiser, I felt like everythins is better. Unfusing made me realize of how much do I need to work on myself."
Light looked at Chip "But we can't forget who we are, we can't forget our faults. We have to improve ourself by hard work, not by fusing. And that is why Light Opal should be only used in really dangerous situations."

"I never said we should stop working or trying. Heck I was trying to improve since I emerged from the ground. Still... I am Fire. It's difficult for me to keep my temper in check. It's just a part who I am. It will never go away. It felt good to be able to keep all the fire in check for the first time." it was so easy to overdid it with fire. To burn everything to the ground. And the worst thing was, it felt so good. But Chip knew he couldn't do that. He was repulsed by the idea he liked to burn things. It was a constant battle. "I will never forget who I am... and I will never forget who you are. But you're right. Light Opal is a very dangerous thing." he agreed.
Light didn't think of that. His overprotective nature and Chip's cocky attitude made Light Opal a confident and carefull fusion. Light in a way, helped Chip control his power while Chip helped Light be a little bit more confident. Pearl knew that fusing would make him more confident, that was actually the point why he wanted to do it. But he never considered that he will aslo help Chip.
"One thing that I learned during my short gem life is that you can't be sure of anything." Light looked a little bit strangely at the Fire Opal "I was talking about Light Opal like at a war machine... but he is not a 'thing'. He is a sentient being just like both of us. But he is more than a combination, he is a different person. And that is why I am not sure how to feel about him." Light scratched his head "This fusion talk makes me dizzy. I have no idea how exactly it works."

"Light Opal was both of us. Fused together into something greater. And yeah, it's crazy, I don't really know how to talk about it too. But I don't have to, we don't have to. Why talk about it when we both felt it. And if there ever come a time, when we need to fuse again we will feel it again." Chip was half lost in his thoughts. He knew, that fusing changed him. He wasn't sure how, but he felt it. It was certainly a strange experience. "We can stop talking about Light Opal if it makes you dizzy." he smiled absently. He didn't want to, but was willing to stop, for Light. After all he didn't have many friends left on Earth...
That was one of the problem. Crystal Gems were suppose to believe that all life and all gems were precious. And yet, it felt like Light Opal was better in every way. Would that mean that some people are more important than the rest?No, it was a homeworld ideology. It was really hard to explain. He probably kept questioning this because in Homeworld it was against the law and it was the first time he experienced it.
Light simply noded, he had nothing to add.
"Of course, what cpuld we talk about now..." He kept thinking about something. About a dream that happened few days ago some time after the time they fused "Chip... if something happened here on Earth, you would be able to simply fly away with those wings? You would find a new home?" He sounded extremly serious.

"Well... I could easily escape Earth if I wanted, I was made to be able to cross incredible distances in space. But I don't see reason to leave Earth, even if something happened. This place is my home... I was made here." he explained. Yes, there were probably planets that were also incredible. But Chip didn't really care. He was made on Earth, he killed a small piece of this planet to be created and he was trying to give something back to it. "Not to mention that if something happens I won't be the one doing the running. That will be the job of those will stand in my way." it could be quite annoying of how cocky Chip could be from time to time.
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
