  2. Tranquillity glanced at the cutie mark that the Stallion pointed towards. She had noticed it before, but she didn't want to assume, sometimes cutie marks could be... weird. Except this one wasn't. "I remember it being quite interesting when I read it. You mentioned before that you waited months for it to be ordered. I wonder where the original copy I read went off to then." 

     

    "It wasn't your fault was it?" Placidity accused privately to her sister who in return just rolled her eyes. "We studied here in Canterlot for our degrees," She elaborated to the pegasus. "I had to pull Tranquility back to her proper studies from that book if I recall. I think she was quite into it at the time."

     

    "Don't listen to her, she recalls wrong, it was free time really. We made it in the end, no big deal."

     

    Oh, there it was. The pegasus asked the inevitable question. It came in average time if Placidity had to recall. Tranquillity probably had a record of it. She knew how much her sister liked records. "Hey, you're not nuts. Unless you are, are you? We should help you if you are," She offered, stopping before she went nuts herself. "We sure are Telepathic. The easiest way for us to communicate. Better than any of that writing stuff, we could never talk 'normally'."

     

    "Our mouths are basically just food and air holes," Tranquility chimed in. "Mostly food holes." 

     

    "Food holes huh, way to put it," Placidity commented secretly. "We've tried to make our voices... more normal, less strange, but I guess magic just wants to be different."

  3. "Please, it's no trouble at all, we both know it's not your fault. It would seem that the street is a bit hazardous today, isn't it sister?" Placidity replied looking towards her sister. 

     

    Tranquillity huffed a bit. "Like I said, one near occurrence. I would expect an issue like this to not last very long if reported correctly. I should probably go do that soon," she wrote it down in her notebook before looking over at the book. "The history of magic science: stars and celestial bodies'. That expresses you have some sort of interest or profession in astronomy would it not? I think we read that book before haven't we?"

     

    "You read it back then. I wasn't there. I sort of read it by proxy because you were transmitting yourself," Plas smiled towards her sister. She probably would have giggled if she had the capability of doing so, which she sort of did, but it wasn't instinctual. "I don't remember much about it." 

     

    "Neither do i believe it or not." Tranq turned towards Stellar Drift. "I am Tranquillity."

     

    "And I am Placidity. It is nice to meet you Stellar Drift." She hummed mentally. "That name resonates quite well."

  4. Some ponies wonder why the two of them would bother to go all 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 achieving great wealth, if there's a free period on the schedule then it's all worth it to spread their services nearby. To be honest, the distance between the two places wasn't so long the more you travelled, you learned to optimise the trips as much as you could. That usually meant grouping all of the external appointments into the same weak. 

     

    "Is that all of them? If so we must certainly go on a vacation after this." Placidity mentally sighed towards her sister. "I'm uncertain as to why they insisted on doing it early in the morning." 

     

    "Perhaps they had other stuff on in the day? Not stuff that we would consider important, but still, we mustn't question them," Tranquility replied to her sister as she pulled out a notebook. "All of them here it would seem. Alright sister, what would you like to do in this city? Or would you like to catch the next train back?" 

     

    "I would hint that you're not particularly in the mood to stick around, are you? Though you know that the next Ponyville train doesn't leave for a while. What about sleeping instead?" 

     

    "Right, because bookworms are nocturnal and sleep during the day. No, we're not sleeping," she mentally growled towards her sister, although one wouldn't notice this. 

     

    "I'm a bookworm too. How 'bout we make use of such trait and check out the library. Although we've been so many times already."

     

    "Don't question yourself. The library is the largest in Equestria and is constantly being updated. It's like you know me so well." Tranquillity smiled at her sister. 

     

    "Naturally."

     

    On the way towards the library, Placidity noticed quite some disturbance in the path. She warned her sister to watch out and Tranquility halted for a moment before proceeding. "Honestly sister, you need to watch out."

     

    "It was almost a single occurrence. Maybe they need to remodel the street," Tranquility rebutted. "Somepony could truly get hurt." 

     

    At that moment, they heard a small crash near them. They looked over and saw a pegasus stallion had crashed themselves onto the floor. "Seems like you jinxed us all." Placidity made her way over to the fallen stallion, finding some glasses on the floor. Her horn lit up as she picked them up associating them with the pegasus. "I believe these are yours," She broadcasted as she lifted them in front of him, her artificial voice resonating in the small vicinity. Her sister picked up the book and examined over it not saying anything yet.

  5. The 'Great Caboose in The sky.' That was a... solemn way to put it. Although, one might remark that the best way to go, is around your own field, your own realm. She wasn't quite sure how that would apply to herself one day. She looked old, apparently, does that mean she would live less too? It was best for her not to think about such things. "I'm not sure if they found much evidence, but if not, then we could possibly get the answer in the future then?" The idea of one going forwards into time was something that she didn't really want to debate over herself. 

     

    "Some ponies, just like to experience different ways that love could possibly happen, even if it's not personally themselves, so I won't blame them for enjoying such pure genre. I would probably die before I wrote a pure." Maybe one needed to experience romance themselves before such pure of a story could be written. "When you say history novels, how much, well, true history do you want in the story? I've had the idea of one that was more of a side plot to the history. The events still happened as they literally did, but there was some side stuff that I would come up with on my own."

     

    Her suspicion was confirmed, and she could basically imagine the colt mentally berating himself. "Hey, please. No need to tread lightly. I've had ponies doing it since before. I can't fault somepony as yourself for not noticing." She didn't really elaborate on what 'before' meant exactly, but ponies had been treating her definitely since it started those decades ago. She was aided by the colt onto a proper seat. "Do they come by here often? I'm getting the vibes that it would be something they would do." While guards aren't quite explorer's, they aren't far fetched. "I should probably be asking you if you come by here often."

  6. As a scootaloo main (lol), I approve this episode times 10. Being the spoiler magnet I am, I already knew about the aunt thing, but I didn't expect the non-permanent residence to start off with. The idea that she was basically shared around is as fanon as it gets.

     

    I guess It's Scootaloo Irwin then. To be honest, I was expecting something more along the lines of the Everfree forest, kind of disappointed, but maybe they've already been there. Damn, I'm too tired to think. Will post more later.

  8. "It's nice to meet you Fast Track." This colt did not seem to notice her blindness. She thought it was obvious, but, foals had the tendency to be oblivious when they were in their realm of interest. And judging by the way he spoke, he was in that realm right now. She guessed from the way he spoke that this 'Neighel Gearsely' was not actually present and was referring to, probably an image. "He sounds quite interesting. Is he still around?" Not that she had any intention of ever meeting him. She was just reinforcing the colt's admirations, bolstering them early. 

     

    "None of my tales are real. Nor do they feature myself. My ongoing one is about Artemis and her rebellion against the union. That's quite a long one, I can't really tell it here. The publishers probably wouldn't like that either," she muttered the last sentence to herself. "One of my first ones was about time travel. A lot of ponies said it was okay, but I think it could have been better, maybe it's okay if you're not really paying attention too much. I tried writing a romance story first but, that was kind of boring to me. A whole story dedicated to just that? It's more of a subplot thing to me really." 

     

    The colt led her into a room that felt a bit warmer than before. There was probably a fireplace there- wait yeah there was the colt told her. "I haven't seen anything in the last... almost two decades," she explained finding her way towards a spot. "This seat isn't taken, is it? I could tell the tale of Red Belly's lawful escape. It isn't really certain if it is a true story or not, but that just means I don't have to be right. And that's the best part about stories." 

     

    "Just give me a moment to think."

  9. Ma'am? She wasn't quite expecting that. It would make sense under formal occasions, but nothing about this seemed to be formal. It made her feel quite old, She was a madam yet... Now that she thought about it, she did remember getting comments that she did look older than she was. That was probably it. But it didn't really matter. The point was that somepony was here to help her out and she was quite grateful for that. 

     

    "Thank you kindly," she replied to the... colt? It sounded like a colt, but she didn't want to be mistaken because sounds can deceive. They said the place was world famous. Maybe famous locally, but she didn't quite believe that statement, it felt like an exaggeration to her. "I'm not sure if there were any indications towards the identity of this place, but if there are, they aren't any that I could possibly notice under my condition. I would say that maybe they still have their own exclusive location elsewhere." It was a classic trope to hide secret locations and societies behind fronts. Makes it easy to hide the location while still keeping it relatively easy for members to access.

     

    She would follow the colt along to the best of her ability. "I'm not sure if you know me, probably not because I don't go out often. I'm No Vella. But you can just call me Vella. I came here intending to listen, but, I can probably let loose a tale, I've got some that haven't been heard before. They don't have to be true, do they? I'm not an adventurer, never was. My life was never that exciting." It would be really surprising to her if anyone truly thought her stories to be true within the realms of this world. Well, maybe some of them.

  10. She had to admit, part of her wanted the griffon to remain held to herself. It was definitely warmer. But lying in the snow together wouldn't get much work done and so she was glad when she was released. The snow, the thing that softened and prevented their harm, would now be the one to probably cause that harm. It was cold, wet and quite loud. She could hear the others, but the wind was really distracting. Hopefully, that wouldn't impede her, she had much bigger problems than being any more blind than she was. Flashbacks to over a decade ago, when she wasn't quite as adept as she was now. A lot changed over those years, for the better. 

     

    At her current capabilities, she couldn't perceive the cabin anymore. Yeah. It was gone. And obviously they had to go the other way. "Well, the cabin would be warmer, until it's not. Than we'll probably have to walk anyway, with less resources than before. There was a situation named after such dilemma wasn't there?" She commented to the griffon. "So yeah, we're basically okay. The snow saved us, and now... it will probably kill us. But not yet." She pulled herself off the ground and made sure her stuff was okay. Yeah it was. Enough of it was okay. Not like it was much survival gear anyway. 

     

    "So, uh. How long has it been since we left? Because that will sort of tell us how far we have left to go. With adjustments, for a lot of stuff." This was going to suck. A lot. 


  11. I really loved this episode. There were so many good parts about it.  I was actually surprised by this episode, because I misinterpreted the synopsis as the complete opposite, not sure how. Who would have guessed that SilverStream would be the first to tame a cockatrice. Gee, Trixie really grows on you more over time. Even though I never hated mudbriar in the first place, It's like I'm unhating him somehow. He's getting more character. And he's not even supposed to be a focus. And we got to see Maud's totally not mineral-philia.

  13. Book 5 was on a bit of hold for now. She had hit a bit of a stump in her writing. As much as she delved into the world of fantasy and alternate realities, she still had to admit that her imagination did not stretch forever, and while this type of situation hadn't happened in a while, she thought it was probably overdue. And so she was here. Well, she thought she was. It was supposed to be this one, the fourth one on the left. Unless she miscounted or misheard. The Explorer's society, a pub named so for the history as a sort of hub for explorer's to tell their tales of epic and adventure. Stuff that she already did, although through books and paper. She came wanting to hopefully refresh her brain. Maybe hear some stories from others. They didn't have to be true or not, they just had to seem interesting enough to spark her mind. Of course, that was assuming she was at the right place. She heard of the place about two weeks ago through eavesdropping on her weekly grocery trip. She hadn't thought of it much back then, but it was useful to know now, and luckily for her, it wasn't too far from her place. 

     

    Vella made her way inside the building, the unlocked door basically inviting herself in. Of course, that was kind of the only part that really did. She heard some chattering inside, that kind of reassured her, maybe she could have been in a store instead? Although what kind of store would have chattering at this level? Maybe she was inside a cafe instead? She stood there for a moment, taking in as much as she could. She had to admit that maybe she should have trained her senses more over the years, although that wasn't really something she could do often with her lifestyle. "This is the Explorer's society... right?" She said out loud hoping maybe somepony heard her. "Because if it isn't, well. I'm obviously not supposed to be here." There was no super standard protocol to design layouts in buildings to help her.

    Novella.png

    Roleplay Type: WoE
    Name: No Vella (Vella No)
    Sex: Female
    Age: Middle adult.
    Species: Earth Pony.
    Eye colour: Milk White.
    Coat: Grey.
    Mane/Tail: White-Grey
    Physique: Below Average, but not quite frail.
    Residence: Canterlot
    Occupation: Author. Forever Free For Everfree is her latest series.
    Cutie Mark: Braille Typewriter. After losing her sight, she got around to finishing one of her early started stories. When she showed it to her family, they expressed positively towards the quality of the story. It was then she got her cutie mark. Nopony knows exactly when it came, just that it came around then. Maybe if she had been able to see it... She hasn't published that story, it's too special for her to let go. 
    Unique Traits: Born with sight, but it degraded over her childhood. Her blindness gives her writing a different emphasis and what references to colour she gives are usually based on the qualities associated with the colours as well as her memories from her childhood. Some might say her condition actually boosted her writing. She might look older than she really is. She's of Neighponese descent.

    Autobiography*: 

    Spoiler

     

    "The Day I went completely blind, I knew it was all imagination from then on."

    I wasn't always blind. For years my sight required a bit of correction, but it wasn't severe, but around the age of 12, it started fading away. There was nothing they could do. I had to watch it Fade Away, or perhaps the opposite, I didn't watch it. I had to make more compensation everyday until it was all... well, nothing.

    I wasn't surprised, it wasn't so sudden, I knew it was coming, maybe not that soon, but in that week. I actually got an early start on preparations. Braille doesn't take as long as you would think, it's not a different language, it's just kind of a different alphabet.

    I started writing before then, but it was after that I really started getting into it. My mind is the only place where I still have it. All the colours. All the details. I can come up with anything, and if it sounds creative and fun, then who cares if it's realistic?

    But I'll still never truly get used to it.

     

    Surname's are a weird thing in this world. It's not a really unified concept. Some families have it, some don't. And some don't always go by it. It's just my luck that my parents decided to be traditional and keep the naming scheme. Having the surname 'No' is quite the blight in Equestria, especially if they pronounce it in the Equestria fashion. It's caused some weird situations sometimes. Well, I guess you could say "Of" Vella instead.

     

    History:  No Vella was born in FillyDelphia to two loving parents. To keep in track with tradition, they gave her the surname of No. The most notable feature of her early childhood was her early acquisition of glasses. The moment she started bumping into things a lot, that was when they knew it had to happen. They weren't really thick, but they were above average a bit. She was never particularly active, preferring mostly to spend her time inside and read, she would often use the excuse of breaking her glasses. Whether or not she made friends is debatable based on what quantifies as a friend. She hung out with others sometimes, but she never particularly got too close to any of them. She tried her hoof at writing, but she never felt like it was good enough, like there was something missing. A couple of years after starting school was when she started to feel the symptoms. Her sight was degrading. All those other times she thought it was happening, it never did, but this time was real, and it was happening fast. It was then that she started learning braille. It wasn't as hard as she thought it was going to be. It was not a language, it was just another script. Within a week, it was all gone. She woke up one day to nothing. You could call it darkness, but really it was just nothing. She never played outside much so that never really affected her, the much she did was mostly just learning how to navigate again, but her limited library sort of did. To make up for the reduction in material, she started writing again, to make her own stuff. She could really feel her imagination now. She continued school for a while longer, but the moment she felt like she had enough, she left. She had published two books by then and had some others in her backlog. She loved her parents, but she needed her own place of solitude. She had two choices in her mind. Manehatten or Canterlot. Ultimately, Manehatten was cheaper at the time and was closer to her first publisher. A couple of years later she switched to a Canterlot based publisher and recently made the effort to set up home there. 

    Character Personality: She is quiet and calm, but inside her mind are worlds of imagination. 
    Character Summary: Vella is a Quiet and calm pony who seems somewhat disconnected from reality. She doesn't really seem to pay much attention to her surroundings unless she's actively travelling. She's not antisocial, it's just easier to think when you're alone.

    No Vella is a character that I created to contrast Loose Cannon. I actually created her a while back, but haven't gone through the effort of importing her to this site. Forever Free For Everfree is an idea that I've been trying to write, but it's probably too ambitious for me to do.
