    A Helping Hoof [LunarDisplay, Szalhi]

    "They didn't inform me of your arrival. Maybe they forgot. Such hard workers are bound to forget," She explained. "I think they were called out for emergency reasons. The animal shelter is great and all, but the vet is still a better place for caring with injured animals. Also, not all animals are really compatible with this place, the big scary ones. I know it's all natural, but I just prefer the cute and cuddly ones." She gestured towards Ripley. "The shelter has been around for long enough that we basically already have all the supplies we need. But i don't really know the full measure of what we have so I'm not sure if I can really say that. If you already have your own place, then what are you doing here? I should probably ask about the condition of it first. I mean, I know now that you were called out here, but would you really leave your clinic to come all the way over here?" She called Ripley back to her, offering a treat of reward, which he accepted. She of course, habitually forgot to account for his increase in size of time. "I was too distracted talking about the shelter that i forgot to mention my name. I'm ZipporWhill. The moment I finish school I'm going to try and come here more often." She looked over to Ripley who trudged back over to his corner. "I like to pretend that he's not, but I swear he's growing faster than he should be. I fear he might not be around for as long as I'd like. I think I'm just overreacting. I don't entirely like to play favourites, but I can't deny that he is mine." She put her hoof to her chin while she thought. "Um, well, I usually just do what looks like needs to be done," She explained before thinking. "I don't think I've gotten to the birds yet, if you want to do them. Oh right, Ashley needs her medication in fifteen minute, it's really easy to do if you want to see me do it. Come to think of it, I don't know what they're for, maybe they told me and I just forgot."

    There was a mare that she had never seen before standing there, with what she assumed was a confused expression. Zipporwhill was in the middle of some routines at the shelter as somewhat of an intern when she spotted the mare who had just walked in. Zipporwhill was the only pony in the building at that moment, everypony else was busy at the time, Fluttershy was off at her own house, while Dr Fauna was busy treating some of the more wounded animals with the proper equipment. So it was just her who was really in charge around here. It made her feel good that she was trusted enough to run the place, but the truth was that she didn't really know how to deal with the public in situations like this. She had resorted to doing what she normally did and as such, she did not notice the mare at first until Ripley informed her, after his one minute delay as he could not be bothered to do so at first. Was she supposed to be formal, professional, or casual. It wasn't really clear since this was a non-profit shelter. Ah well, she should just be herself she thought. "Welcome to the Ponyville Animal Shelter. Are you here to pick up one of these poor creatures?" She asked spreading her hooves out essentially gesturing to the animals through the building. "Or maybe you're interested in helping out? I'm probably not the right one for you to ask, but I'm the only one here at the moment and I'm sure they wouldn't mind." She turned and saw that the mare had a suitcase with her which peaked more of her interest. "Are you not from around here? If so, it seems like this is the first place you've visited. What an honour. It kind of does make sense because I've never seen you before. What brings you out to such a place as this?" She noticed that Ripley was still lying over in what would be named 'his corner' and beckoned for him to come over, much to his dismay. "C'mon Ripley, come say hello to the mare."

    Is anyone a fan of Little Einsteins?

    I watched it all the time when i was younger, but i wouldn't say that I'd go out of my may to watch it now. I vaguely remember some deep lore episodes, unless I'm remembering it wrong.

    Animal shelter, I didn't think of that at first. Maybe we could combine both ideas. Anyway, I'm not going to start the thread myself, I'm too busy for that.

    What type of accidental run-in would you suggest? Zipporwhill's probably not going to leave Ponyville.
  7. My motivation to RP is being pressured by all the work I actually have to do.

    Good morning starshine. The earth says hello. I could possibly do something with Zipporwhill.
  9. I Guess my family has infected me. I feel terrible.

  10. Might take a break from the roleplays for a bit.

    [Open] Day Off.

    It was a regular sunny day in Ponyville. A Sunday, a day normally reserved for rest and relaxation and so it was expected that the two mares were not working but were out in the park having a picnic. No, they were not lovers, not that way. They were sisters, twins to be exact. The white mare would occasionally write something down in the book of hers while the black mare was munching on the sandwiches that she had prepared herself. From an onlooker's perspective, they would appear to be a very quiet pair, physically gesturing towards each other occasionally, but no vocal sounds were to be heard. It wasn't necessarily by choice, but it was because these mares were incapable of making any vocal sounds at all; they were mute since birth. Despite their conditions, it did not stop them from making any conversation telepathically. An onlooker would also see the mixed magical field that appeared to surround them. If anypony were to enter this field than they would be able to hear their very conversations. "So, these two mares come in off schedule and the Earth pony seems annoyed. She said her marefriend had a strange addiction that she tried to put up with, but it was getting annoying to her. The Unicorn initially denied ever having such an addiction," The black mare, Placidity informed her sister. "Was it Lyra and Bon Bon? I heard from gossip about Lyra's supposed addiction to claws and such. Something about wanting to get some of her own," The white mare Tranquillity responded. "I'm assuming you resolved the issue?" "It was Lyra," She confirmed before shaking her head. "Not quite yet. I got her to admit it but we haven't come to a full conclusion yet. They'll be coming back in two days." "Of course, I wouldn't expect something like that to breeze over fast. Anyway, I've got an appointment in three days and I may be able to assist you on Tuesday." Their job was mostly scheduled around appointments, but they also accepted sessions without them sometimes. On a day like today they had no appointments and so they decided to take the day off. It would be a shame if someone needed an emergency appointment, but their policy was quite set out.

    [Open] Day Off.

    "HoneyHoof, I swear I've never heard that name before. I might have seen him before, but like you said, that would have been a while back. Those 'goofy hat' you say are a big staple of the Apple family, it's more than just an Appleloosan thing," Tranquillity said examining the image. "Maybe we don't socialise enough? Or the timing is just completely wrong because we're not always in this town. The wealthy pay a lot just to bring us over to their estates," Placidity added on to her sister. "I would guess that a town on the frontier wouldn't have much to develop in their culture. I've heard they're really friendly with newcomers, probably because of this." "Anyway, this town is pretty good if you want some diversity. It's like a city, except smaller. That's one of the reasons why we moved here is so that we could get a variety of clients. I couldn't ever imagine living in Canterlot, the social diversity isn't really that great. Ponyville is also very calm, just like ourselves." "There's nothing to be embarrassed about. I'd say that you have more social skills than most dragons do. But that's coming from the perspective of a pony so the validity of my opinion might not be saying much," Placidity reassured the dragon. "It's in our jobs to take in the 'weird emotional baggage' as you would call it." "But please, if you must, we weren't particularly expecting to do much work today. That's why we're out here instead of in the office," Tranquillity asked the dragon.

    [Open] Day Off.

    "Honey thousands of years old that's still edible? That sounds about right. We've read that before haven't we?" Tranquillity watched the dragon approach them, almost like he wanted the field to be smaller. "Our telepathy has become a regular part of our life that I think we could broadcast over the entire town without too much effort, not that we've really tried." "Ten years ago we read that in a book somewhere. I don't think it really matters what book," Placidity answered her sister. "Are you suggesting that we do such that? Send a public PSA that can be heard by anyone in this town, but the wildlife outside won't be disturbed." "You know very well that I wasn't suggesting that. But yeah that could work," Tranquility privately replied to her sister. "Well, I guess we would have to get both kinds to truly experience the differences." Placidity noticed the amount of rambling that the two of them were doing and the effect it seemed to have on the dragon. "Oh sorry, you don't have to pay attention to half the things we say. It's just a thing that we like to do with our natural connection. Although it would be hard for you to know what half that you should be paying attention to. Funny the most verbal mares are the least capable of traditional speech." "Yes, we're not going to completely attempt to cut down on it because we know it's not really going to work very well," Tranquility added on. "So your dad comes around here? What's his name? We don't really see many other dragons around here. Unless he's not a dragon and you're speaking in terms of adoption." "I'm sure it would be in the local news if an adult dragon came to this town, especially if it happened a couple of years ago." Placidity eyed the dragon. "So are you admitting that you do not get much socialisation? Why do you think that is?"

    [Open] Day Off.

    The pair of them looked over to the figure that was approaching them. How peculiar. A dragon. Not exactly a species one would expect to see around here, besides Spike the outlier, but in this town, anything seemed to be possible. The two of them looked each other before nodding before they expanded their range to cover the dragon as well. "Honey from Appleloosa? Well, it wouldn't be far fetched to produce non apple related products in that town. It's not like their exclusive or anything," Tranquility thought out loud in the synthetic-ish sounding voice of the spell. "Appleloosa isn't really that close enough to here to really be fresh is it? I mean, it really depends on what one would call fresh," Placidity added on eying the jars. "Does honey have much of a freshness? I mean we haven't tried enough honey in our life to become experts on that," Tranquility replied before realising. "When was the last time we had honey?" "A year ago. It never came up to have any more. Are you suggesting we purchase some of this product from this nice dragon? Would be quite the complement to this meal of ours." "I wasn't sure before, but I am now." Tranquility turned up to the dragon. "What brings a dragon around to this quaint little town?" "Besides the selling of your product she means, which we will be purchasing. What an effective business trick to choose the mares who are enjoying a meal, assuming it was one."

    "I would imagine one would have a bit of free time while sailing around. We have not done much sailing ourselves to really concur with your statement," Placidity said as she watched him finish the sculpture. "That's because you're body couldn't tolerate the water much at all," Tranquility replied to her sister. She watched as the stallion offered up one of his products to a filly. "Quite nice of you to create such sculptures for others." "I tolerated it much more than you thank you," Placidity privately rebutted to her sister. "Generosity isn't really much of a trait that is expressed truly in this city. The most you might see are the wealthy giving gifts to other wealthy. It's more of an exchange than a sacrifice really. Of course, I'm making assumptions on the stereotypes of the city." "It's a pleasure to meet you Silver," Tranquillity greeted. "You can call me Tranquillity." "As I go under the name of Placidity," Placidity greeted after her sister did. "You can shorten them down to one syllable if it's a mouthful as you speakers would say." "You say you're here to see the sights, but is there a more particular reason why a stallion such as yourself is present in such a city as this one?" "If it means anything, we're not local either. Assuming that you're not local obviously. We reside down in Ponyville if that would matter to you," Tranquillity explained.

    A Pirate's Life For Me! (Open)

    Some ponies wonder why the twins would bother to go al the way to Canterlot to satisfy the needs of a single pony. What they somehow don't seem to realise is that if it's Canterlot, then it's no doubt going to be a pony of rich status. While the twins personally weren't ones for acheiving great wealth, if there's a free period on the schedule than it's all worth it to spread their services nearby. "I do not understand why one would request our services at such an early time in the morning. Well, I guess it's not that early, but still." "Really, it can be hard to understand the ponies of this city sometimes. I mean, it would have been sufficient to call one of us up, but then they called both of us up anyway. I guess if one is loaded then they will want premium service." "I wouldn't really call premium service as calling a pair of mares that are based in Ponyville." "Hey you don't want to spoil our reputation." "How would our reputation be spoiled if others cannot hear our conversation." "It was an attempt at a joke." "You know we are incapable of doing so." "Not purposely at least." One of the benefits to being a pair of telepathic twins is the ability to communicate with each other in a way that is basically completely private from the ears of the surrounding crowd. To others it may seem that they are just gesturing to each other, as if they were signing, with a lower quality of sophistication. As they were trotting along, Tranquility over heard the sound of a stallion singing at the nearby fountain. She hoofed her sister who was facing a different direction pointing over there. "Oh how it would be if we could sing as great as that," Placidity commented to her sister. "We can't sing at all." "That's the point. Amazing how such a simple shanty can mean a lot." "I'm more interested in the sculptures," Tranquility replied pointing towards the assortment of sculptures that were near him. The two of them approached the stallion and stood there for a moment waiting for the correct moment to interject. "Good sir, I couldn't help but compliment the quality of your arts," Tranquility stated publically, examining the sculptures in more depth. "And the way you take something quite... simple and make it seem much more," Placidity followed up referring to his song.

    I am here!

    Hopefully, you stick around. Don't be expecting roleplays to get thrown into your face.
  19. Obviously you'd remove the horn with a precision laser. A laser to the lock also sounds like a good idea. In fact, there's not enough lasers.
  20. Tranquility, Placidity. Reason: Ponies aren't predators. It's not in their nature to fight on purpose. But it is necessary for the protection of their land to do so. A lot of unintended psychotic effects can come out of serving in the military especially in a place so close to the EverFree Forest. The twins aim to remedy that. They're not physically adept, but their magic can sure make up for it.
  21. Haven't gotten around to watching the episode, but this is the 18th Broadcast episode. This is basically a promo episode that may or may not be connected to the 35th anniversary stuff.

    Oh Boy, I finally get to use Szalhi as a character name on this site. The search is finally Ogre. I wasn't expecting the Backstory to be that long, but the entire Ogre Savagery thing really kicked it off when I thought about it.
