  1. The day was dark, and it was cold. But that wasn't really out of the ordinary. The cold was normal, Dark was normal, and for her, it wasn't really a thing, to begin with. It was kind of a surprise for her to be pulled into the Rangers until she found out it was in times of desperate needs. So that was it? The Everfree was wearing them down through Attrition so it was no wonder that she got in so easily. Well, it would surely be more exciting than her original job. HMA was fun to do, but she had to admit she was no sensei. She needed real combat, and so she accepted the role, even if the budget was low, and she would probably not make any cash off of it, what good would be cash if she wasn't expecting to survive? She trotted through the cold, albeit it was kind of confusing as the weather tried to fight against the systems in place to keep the town from completely frosting over. If one was outside at this time, then they were probably crazy or they were traveling. If there was anypony watching her, then they'd probably be wondering how she was getting around with her eyes so blocked like that, maybe if they were closer they would be able to hear the sounds she would make. It's not like she needed to do such now anyway, she knew her way to her destination. She had gotten the job, but she didn't really know much else. Maybe there was some information that she couldn't read somewhere. She was going to the diner to try and gather more information, maybe there was somepony there that could tell her. She finally made it inside the building. She would have to make use of the heat as much as she could for she probably wouldn't be experiencing it much ever again. Trotting her way over to her usual spot, she noticed the usual presence of the #1 employee. "Yo, Ponks, get me the usual would ya?" she called out before realising it would probably be the last time she'd ever get this. "Make it three, to make up for the times I won't be here."
  2. Damn graduation. 


    Now I have to get a job.

  3. Name: Loose Cannon Race: Earth Appearance: She has short mane and tail with a darker orange tone than her coat. Her eyes are basically white, but they can appear a bit red sometimes, remnants of her uveitis. She is above average in strength. Her cutie mark is a flaming horse shoe. Personality: She can seem intimidating sometimes, but other times she's kind of nice. She's not a leader, don't put her in charge, she doesn't know what to do. She tries not to care much about how ponies think of her, but it can be clear sometimes that it doesn't work. Winter Civilian gear: -Thick wool sweater. -Blindfold (Despite serving virtually no function, her eyes are still sensitive. She wears it sometimes to stop further inflammations. It also looks cool, maybe.)
  4. In one week I'll be out of school.



    Wait what? That's too soon.

  5. No one came to my door.



    1. DreamWanderer

    2. tacobob


      Yeah. The front door!


      We all snuck in the back! :kissy:

    3. PyroBlaze


      Me either, but that's pretty typical

  6. Might consider dropping out of this thread if I can't reply soon. Don't want to slow down the thread..
  7. 91 episodes to get to the world stuff.
  8. Sometime you just have to take your time. I had a problem with that, I always felt Like I was on a deadline and if I couldn't meet it, then I should scrap it. But then I read how long it took for Metro 2033 to get written and I realised that I personally can't write something fast, especially with all the other things I have to do right now and I just had to accept that it's okay. Still sucks.
  9. This place would get crowded soon. While not something that would be that big of a problem- she hoped, they were still more used to small groups as was the nature of their occupation. Was that King Sombra? Placidity had heard about him, the stuff he did, and she had also heard other things recently. It seemed that everything was alright though. "Is that Sombra? That Sombra? The Sombra? Of the Crystal Empire?" "It would appear so. Seems nothing's wrong. Nothing to be alarmed about, even if it is within your extra duties in the Twilight Auxilliary," Tranquility replied looking around herself. She was mostly focusing on Luna for the moment. "So it's your sister to blame for the mistake? I guess she gets a pass because it's her birthday. Really, it's only a single letter, one which is of similar form to it's successor. Is our telepathy really that clever? I would have thought more ponies would do it, albeit, not as often of course. I should study that. We always knew we got a boost from our natural connection, so I want to know if it applies to other twins too. Besides communication, it really helped us with our profession. It seems to be much easier for clients to understand us if we're speaking directly into their mind." Celestia offered them drinks. Of course, it wouldn't be a party without some. But what drinks would they ask for? Placidity was assuming Celestia was referring to alcohol right? But maybe it was a bit too early for that? She would have to ask. "We're not really big into drinking, so forgive us if we do not understand the terms. But what would you recommend? Alcohol or not, it shouldn't really matter in this circumstance. Living in Ponyville has given us a sort of preference for cider, but that would be a bit boring now wouldn't it?"
  10. Damn, forgot it was my turn. Sorry.
  11. Wait, it was Celestia's Birthday? Well of course the Princesses would have birthday's but the twins didn't remember ever learning about it. Was there any reason around that? Maybe they just overlooked it or forgot about it. "It's your birthday your highness? Forgive us for not knowing if we were ever supposed to. I suppose us ponies were not supposed to know? Well, we know now at least," Placidity said bowing, before remembering what Celestia said about informality. She quickly rose up. Informality around the royal elder sisters was going to be a bit weird. Princess Twilight wasn't quite formal, but these princesses were thousands of years old. "Informality, of course," Tranquility said to her sister. Unlike her, Tranquility did not bow to the princess, merely bringing out their invitation instead. "Right here, it says 'Celerstia'. It might have been a duplication error. Maybe we only got it. It's really no big deal to us. Maybe it's a big deal to you? Assuming you wrote it." She looked over at Luna. "Good Afternoon to you too Luna. Perhaps it was your mistake? If you were to have your own party too, you wouldn't make the same mistake would you?" Placidity looked around. There were three other ponies here she saw at that moment. She recognised one of them, she thought. Ice Storm right? The name was brought up once during one of her sessions, maybe for only a moment. Besides the name she didn't really know them any more than the other two, one of which was a filly that proceeded to capture most of Celestia's attention. "It is an honour to meet you Luna, We are Placidity and Tranquility. We speak through telepathy whether direct or broadcasted, for we do not possess voices ourselves, we never did. I must compliment you on the work you put into your sky every night. As my sister said, would you have your own party too? I would be willing to attend if you did."
  12. School's kind of taking a toll on me, I need to save my roleplay rations for other threads.
  13. (( It really depends, I've got a lot of roleplay on my ass, but I could possibly do something...))
  14. Tranquillity had been sitting in her office working on her upcoming book when she was assaulted by the letter. When she had opened up the note, she was surprised at the contents of such letter, of course, she didn't represent it physically. She was invited to a birthday party in the Canterlot Palace Gardens. It didn't specifically say who's birthday it was. It couldn't have been one of the Princesses' could it? She had never met any of them, or if they did it was long enough for her to forget. The next best guess was a client in Canterlot, though they'd have to be high enough to even get the Gardens as a venue and they didn't take any high nobles as clients. For some reason, a Princess birthday sounded more plausible to her. She lit her horn up to talk with her sister who was outside. "Plas, we've got a situation here. Royal letter from Canterlot, says I'm invited to a party in the palace gardens, you're invited by extension too." Placidity put down her tools and started to head back into the building. "Party in the Palace gardens? Why would we be invited to that? I'm coming in to take a look." When Placidity arrived at the office she saw the letter floating in her sister's grasp and took it from her. "This is real. We're literally invited? We should go. It says there's no need to bring a gift, we could leave right now." "And if it's weird, or a mistake we'll leave straight away, good," Tranquility replied taking the letter back. "It says we can use a verbal command for transport. Is it literally verbal, or can it be any sound, otherwise we might have a problem." "Let's find out." The two of them placed their hooves on the letter at once and they both projected the words. "Take me there." With a flash, they were teleported directly to the gardens. This was not the first time they'd been there, the last time had been when they took the palace tour a couple of years ago. They looked around and saw that everything was still being set up. Were they early? There was no time indicated in the letter, maybe they weren't expected to come straight away. The two of them approached the princesses and bowed down, lighting up their horns projecting their artificial voices. "Your Highnesses, we were invited to this birthday party of which there was no name. We are unsure if this was a mistake or not, please tell us it wasn't." "If it is, then you can just send us back, we will understand," Tranquility added on raising from the bow. "Oh, by the way, there's a typo on the letter, not sure if you noticed."
  15. After making it over the bridge, Loose Cannon continued on. Considering the number of participants who jumped that ravine, maybe she should have done that too. She didn't really communicate with any others after that point, as she contemplated her chances of success. Ah well, she couldn't change her mind now. What's done is done, unless some force of magic could change that, magic which is of course against the rules. The race felt like it started a while ago, but in reality, it wasn't really. Perhaps it was the distance that made it feel as such since this was a race and they were going at full optimal speeds. The Roundbottom hills were what the next area was called from what she remembered. She had never been here before, but from what ponies had recalled, the hills were tiring to navigate. Why go over the hills when you can just go through them? They were scary. Supposedly. Why were they scary? Darkness, the unknown, creatures that would be hiding. What is darkness? Something that is completely outside her realm and has no meaning to her. Really, it was just a regular dense forest to her. However, for some reason, they were not forced to go over the hills. Another choice within this race of choices. Who knew a race could have so many choices? Normally the only choice is the one of participation. "Okay right, so go over the hills and mess up my energy, or go through them and face off against the darkness," She said out loud when she arrived at the fork. "Is this supposed to be a choice?" No, it really wasn't a choice at all. She noticed Applejack and ran up to her. "Alright, let's get this over and done with." She was going to go into the forest of darkness, whatever that is.
