  1. Oh hey, thanks, worked out a bit better than I thought for base material. You're lucky Vella's blindness isn't congenital so it gives a bit of an excuse. Also I'm not sure what you used to input it, but the Braille spacing is technically not right but who would notice but me?
  2. Man, Now Loose Cannon might have something Non classified to do. Loose goes into the Everfree (outskirts) all the time. She actually enjoys it sometimes. No forest darkness can impede her when that's all she has. May or may not have disassembled a certain moving tree thing. Loose may or may not have met her before, but because of ages and stuff, the answer is probably no.
  3. Should I really be joining some threads when I might get really busy later?



    Of course

      The difference is that I'll be actually busy for real.

    3. Ashton


      ...you mean before you faked being busy just to have an excuse to abandon all your threads? :(

    4. szalhi


      Did I fake being busy? I'm just a big enough procrastinator that it happens to things I want to do. Back in school I did the most roleplay because it was procrastination itself.

  4. The announcement, didn't have nearly as much of an effect on twins as it may have on others. Besides their normal refrain from negative emotions, they had not been living in this town for long enough to really form a deep enough connection with the soon to be former mayor. That was not to say they had no reaction at all, it was just, not obvious to probably 99% of the population in this town. Somehow delve into their tight network, and you would be able to hear the fast conversation that may overload your mind. "Well, that kind of brings up want I've been wanting to say for a while now sister. You know, true business isn't booming as much as we thought. It seems ponies don't have many problems that require us in this town," Placidity pointed out. "Well, this town is pretty calm, in that sense. It's not going to be as hectic as other cities, if you discount the exaggerated panics sometimes. We're doing alright, nothing wrong there, I don't see what you're trying to say. Do you want to leave this place?" Tranquility asked, mentally raising an eyebrow. "No, not at all, we're staying here. I mean, we're not going into poverty or anything anytime soon, it just seems redundant for us both to be working the same job, even if there are some, side projects that could be beneficial." "You brought this up now, are you suggesting..." "Yes, precisely. I'm going to run for mayor," she announced before dramatically pausing for effect. "There's no real harm in doing so, more benefits I would see. I've always been more charismatic than you. I can do the same basic stuff, just a bit differently." "But, like, I mean, I've always done things with you. Like..." "Yes and no. We do the same basic stuff, but delve deeper and we do different stuff. Truth be told, I don't like sitting inside writing a book the same way you do." "Hey, if it's what you want to do. I can take over for myself. My book shouldn't take that much longer anyway, and there will be downtime before I can even start the next. Plus, I guess this way you might be able to actually solve the panic epidemics." "Maybe, yeah. Put matters into my own hooves. Seems a bit intimidating sometimes, but I've always got you to back me up." "I don't know how much authority I have, but who's going to know?" The two of them would smile at each other as Placidity walked up to the signup sheet. As much as sometimes they like mundane, change can be fun in life. Placidity would probably give a speech sometimes, but not now. She wanted it to be good, and as much as there is to being open about yourself, sometimes ponies don't need to hear what you're really thinking about. But hey, if anypony wanted to ask her some questions now, well normally she asks the questions, but why not?
  5. I kind of want No Vella at a book 'signing' but I don't know if you can do that.
  6. I don't even no what I want exactly.
  7. Ah, I don't know if I deserve this. I mean art is art, but I already have enough.
  8. Vote Tranquility and you will see that all negative emotions are purged forever.

  9. Nice thread you've got there, would be a shame if I inadvertently killed it.

      keep an eye open. I'll come up with another thread sooner or later. :)

    3. szalhi


      Ah well, Loose's skills would be cheating.

    4. Ashton


      unless s/he is a reality warper I'm sure there are plenty of puzzles and monsters I could throw at you that would at least challenge her/him ;)

    Pony Life

    Kind of late news, but yeah. A nice interlude for G5.
  11. I feel like I'm forgetting something.

  12. Oh boy, 2020, I can see clearly now.

  13. She laughed in response to Cloudy's quirk and patted him once. "C'mon Cloudy, it's not like you're the one who is blind. Unless something changed recently?" When Iggy, who Cloudy mentioned earlier was a Kirin, made their plunge, Loose was a bit surprised that the energy transfer speed didn't seem to have much of a lasting effect besides what seemed like a steam cloud, but maybe the limits were higher than she thought. Or magic. Yeah that was probably the answer. It was supposedly the answer of how this was possible in the first place, so it would be the answer to that as well. "Hey, nice job, Iggy was it? You were in there for a bit. But not long enough right?" Hopefully that didn't intimidate the Kirin too much because no one should redo this challenge anytime soon. "Well, I'll have to do better than you." She wasted no time hopping right into the water. It was cold. Like, cold, but colder. The cold was coldier. But it was cold as she expected, just except that it was colder. Cold. But nah, she played it off normal. "I don't see what's so bad about this water. Perfectly normal." Hypothermia is a worthy sacrifice for victory. Supposedly there were two ways to do this, completely focus all on the task, or completely ignore it entirely. Ignoring seemed more nonchalant. "So, uh. Nice weather we're having today?" Alright, that was about it. She got out of the water as smoothly as possible, standing out in the open for maximum plausibility. "That was disappointing. You know, I think the pool is messed up, it's actually warmer in there. You guys should come here and try it."
  14. The Plunge sounded simultaneously like the best and worst event ever. From one perspective, it seemed really unsafe and like ponies could get really hurt, but then again, apparently Pinkie Pie was in charge and she was sure it was physically impossible for one to get actually hurt around her. Even though Loose was born in Appleloosa, she spent the majority of her life here and as such she could be considered biologically neutral on the temperature scale. But such an event wasn't just about physical endurance, it was also about mental endurance for one could probably stay in longer than their nervous system wanted to. And how could such a pony of her figure not even attempt this at all? She found out about the event through one of Pinkie's totally not discreet announcements; one of the types where it seemed she hadn't even prepared it yet but was certain it was going to happen. Because of this she felt like she was surprisingly early to the event, normally being late due to lack of communication (no, posters are not a valid form of communication, thank you government.) She was actually lucky when she arrived at the table because she wasn't the only one there. While she was taught how to write her name in print, that only really works if you know where to write it in the first place. "Hey, Cloudy, sorry to run off on you the other day. Had to get the food home before... stuff happened to it you know." That was probably the greatest excuse she could come up with now. "Are those your friends over there. Are they participating too? Which reminds me, can you put me down as well? Kind of hard to do it myself." It was about then that she started getting second thoughts. But she ignored them. "The recovery might be more intense than the actual event. Assuming one of us doesn't go through cold shock." She kind of hoped that wouldn't deter him.
  15. Oh boy, holiday season. Time to spend even less time roleplaying because that's how it has always worked for me.

  16. You could make it any colour, it's not like she'd notice.
  17. Pony name: Loose CannonColors you want for background: Some shade of Yellow-orange for contrast.Special effects: NoneFont Style: I would ask for Braille, but I'm not that cruel. Bold.Image you are providing I'm really not stingy at all about design.
  18. "If there's anything we've learned from the Everfree forest is that it's wild. Chaotic wouldn't be the right term because it was already stated that Discord didn't create it entirely. So really, there's the odd chance that if you do discover something, it might not be relevant for very long," Tranquility elaborated. "Some researchers have a theory that it plays favourites on different entities, so really, you've got to give it a try yourself." "It was said that Nightmare Moon may have been 'chosen' somewhat by the forest, but it is argued whether or not it was just her own magic," Placidity added on. "You'll meet Rarity eventually, but if there's somepony you will definitely meet soon, it's Pinkie Pie. Which begs the question why she's so late." "I would have predicted you met her already when you came in." "Or she's just really busy." "No, she has weird priorities." Placidity simply nodded to end that tangent. "Truth be told, we don't normally drink tea very much. So maybe we do have preferences, but as far as we can tell, they're not really prevalent."
  19. (( The mute ponies say the most stuff it seems.) "You study magic? Well, at least it's not practicing magic. Although, maybe you should do more of that to get better," Tranquility pondered. "Ponies have tried to study the Everfree for millenia, and it hasn't worked out too well. Maybe a Kirin can do better." "Yes, maybe us unicorns aren't looking at it the right way. The psi of the forest is quite horrifying sometimes and other times just loud, but it only happens within, just like everything else about it," Placidity added on. "Rarity is the local fashionista, she runs her own boutique here, and I think two others, or was it three? Her boutique is probably the cleanest place in Ponyville." "We're not really ones to play too much on favourites. We'll accept whatever tea is available at the time, should make it easier on others, though it seems some ponies can't fathom the idea of not having preferences though, and it seems to make it actually harder on them."
  20. "One could not blame you for even having the house remotely clean yet. It's not even considered normal to have a house cleaning spell. Well, unless your name is Rarity," Placidity joked at the end, hoping the certain pony was not nearby, though with these conditions, she probably wouldn't leave the boutique. She took a sip from the tea. "Ginseng? I don't believe we've had Ginseng before." "We have. When we went to the Velvet Strand for a week," Tranquility reminded her. "Oh yes that's right. I'm almost sorry for forgetting. It's some really nice tea." "I'd like to say it's the best, but I'm not a connoisseur for tea or anything," Tranquility complimented. To say they could judge really anything would be contradictory to their personalities. "Such a trait must be useful. Well, unless used by children if there's any consistency within the realm."
  21. "It's no bother at all. We just showed up to your house, you're in no big commitment to comfort us at all," Placidity replied as the Kirin proceeded to set up her stuff, outside. It was no surprise to them that the Kirin would use flame magic to heat up the kettle after the experience from just a moment ago, but the real surprise was that it didn't go wrong. Yet. Maybe. "With current conditions, this is really the nicest setup we could expect. Is that a specific spell, or is that an inherent racial trait? I've read a bit on Kirin's but such sources are fairly out dated by now," Tranquility asked. "May I ask what type of tea you may be serving us?"
  22. "Well, I'm sorry that our pony spells don't quite translate into other species, but maybe you could be the one to do it?" Tranquility asked. Part of her thought that maybe it was just an issue with this one in particular, but she didn't want to say it. "Well, the accident has occurred. Maybe if you're going to try the spell again, you could do it with extra precautions. Like some extra wards and stuff. Probably not cast by you, if there's anything to learn from here," Placidity replied looking towards her sister. "Of course, I'd be the one to do it, since Plac here hasn't learned the spell yet. And maybe she never will." "Yeah, like you will never learn the flower spell," The black unicorn retorted before turning back to Iggy. She hoped they weren't broadcasting all that, but she knew they were. "I would have been concerned if the crate leaked in the residue." "If you're still offering, we would gladly accept it."
  23. "Well, you said you had a dragon with you. Have you tried it with him? Dragons aren't directly related to ponies so it would be a good work. If it works on him, it's safe to say it works on everycreature." Of course, that was ignoring all the animals and stuff. "I don't really need the shard. This is the largest public body of water nearby, I'm not entirely interested in being a seapony for very long, although it was an interesting experience." The Hippogryph shouldn't have to worry about her as with the lack of her ever having sight, it's harder for her to know what she's missing out on. Sensing around, she could sort of notice the dust on the surface, but not much else. "How long do you think until everything's okay?"
  24. "Maybe it's a cycle." "No, I think it just happens when they're angry or something." "I've never seen them around, have you?" "No, not at all. Maybe they're angry at the house." "At this point the house would be angry at them." In the time it took for them to have their mini conversation, the Nirik managed to, well, de-nirik? Was that how it was? Whatever. What a coincidence it was at that moment that the two calmest (externally) ponies in the town would show up. "Hi Iggy, I'm assuming you just made it in. Is this some sort of Kirin house ritual?" Tranquility asked the new Kirin, although she didn't quite feel comfortable saying the nickname. This wouldn't be clear through the artificial voice. "What my sister meant to say is that houses don't normally, well, explode or anything," Placidity interjected. "I'm Placidity, and this is my sister Tranquility. I wish we could have met on, better circumstances."
