  1. SUBMITTED FOR JUDGING Boulder Dash had already stepped forward for his turn in the tug of war. Reaching down with his hoof, he offered a helping lift to Big Macintosh out of the muck. "Come on ole friend, let's git ya outta thar for Granny Smith throws a fit huh?" he asked yanking Big Macintosh out of the mud pit. Patting his shoulder and even hugging the Earth Pony he had seen as a younger brother, he watched Big Macintosh walk off before turning to three ponies that had yanked him onto the muck with a fiendish grin. "Boys.....got nothin against ya'll. But when ya mud pie a pony what likes my lil brother...we is gonna have a big problem" he said as he took the rope in his mouth and and dug his hooves into the dirt. The three ponies on the end of the rope gulped nervously and took their ends as Boulder Dash held his tightly. The Ref pony sensing some tension nodded to Boulder Dash and said, "Next Contestant, Boulder Dash! Ready? One, Two, Three Tug of War!" Boulder Dash took the hint and dug his hooves in tight as the three on the other end pulled. For them it was like trying to pull concrete as they grunted, heaved, and hoed trying to pull Boulder Dash's large form into the muck. Boulder Dash held strong and yanked the other end of the rope, straining his powerful neck muscles and his strong jawline, but still found it difficult to pull three ponies at once. As he held strong it looked like a stalemate was occurring until Boulder Dash felt his neck start to strain and the dirt give way under his hooves. He dug deeper trying to breath in to get his stance straight but this caused the ground under his hooves to start to crumble the three ponies on the other end began to pull harder. Ultimately he gave way and went flying into the air with a loud SPLORT. Pulling his head out of the mud for the 2nd time that day, Boulder Dash held his head high as one of the other ponies called out, "Do you eat concrete or something?" Boulder Dash laughed out loud and walked off to get clean up.
  2. Rocky was out and about again walking through the various stands of the Competition. After rooting for his big brother Boulder Dash in the Obstacle course he had decided to see the other attractions of the competition. Watching Scootaloo dive was exciting as well as the cup cake competition, yet yearned for a challenge himself. As he worked through the stands, the sea foam colored Earth Pony adjusted the red bandana on his head as he worked through the crowds. Soon he came across the Apple Ring toss stand and the voice of Applebloom soon caught his attention. The young colt walked up too the line and stood in place as he tried to remain natural, hard though it was. It seemed every creature in Equestria was aware of his crush on Applebloom, and though he was getting better he still struggled to talk straight to her. Still as his turn came up he smiled, fighting the blush coming into his cheeks, he placed his bits on the counter and bowed his head to her. "Afternoon Applebloom Ma'am.....I'd be greatly honored if I could give it a toss. If anything to get to help ya'll out today" he managed to squeak out with his country twang.
  3. Boulder Dash trotted into the pavillion wiping some sweat from his brow with a towel and sipping from a flask that smell like anything other then water. He cracked his large thick neck and sighed as he recharged. As the whiskey went down his throat and burned his insides, he smiled in his satisfaction as he corked it and placed it in his saddle bags. A few loud belches caused him to look up and notice the other contestants. Particularly the one named Feng. Walking up he tipped his hat to him and said, "Nice moves out thar suh. Ya moved good fast out on that track and I can respect someone what ain't afraid of a little sweat and hard work. Names Boulder Dash."
  4. Boulder Dash having an idea as to what to order set his menu down as and unfolded his napkin placing it in his lap. "Oh yes Ma'am. Tomaters have mo used den ya can shake a can at. Salads, sauces, juices, garnishes, or jist a snack in da middle o de day, de dont ever let ya down. Through hard work an dedication I don think dere be a bottle of ketchup too a jar of marina in dis town with Great Grandpa Beef Boulder's smiling bearded grin" he said proudly. The ranch had greatly expanded since his return. A little over a year and a half ago and business was booming. Entire cart loads of tomatoes, sauces, juices, and garnishes were traveling as far as the Crystal Empire now and the family name had spread that even Griffins, Dragons, and Hippogriffs had travelled to see the large ranch and tour its numerous fields. Took a moment to reflect on this and buttered a slice of bread after Rarity had taken a slice, enjoying the texture as he did. Meanwhile the waiter had gone and collected the wine bottle, making sure he had gotten the right bottle and was going back over to the table when he was spotted and waved down by a disguised Princess Cadance. The waiter went over to her and nodded, "Oui Madame?" he asked. Prince Shining Armor looked confused as Princess Cadance looked at the wine bottle and said, "I am sorry to disturb you sir but I couldn't help but wonder if I could see that vintage your carrying? I'm a wine connoisseur you see" The waiter nodded and handed the bottle to Cadance. Holding it as if reading the bottle, Cadance smiled as the tip of her horn touched the bottle. It glowed for just a moment, and Cadance handed the bottle back to the waiter. "A fine vintage, I'm sure the lovely couple over there will enjoy it" she said with a sly smile on her face. The waiter nodded again and went back over to Rarity and Boulder Dash's table. "What did you do? You didn't put a love spell on it did you?" Shining Armor asked eyeing Cadance with suspicion. "Of course not dear, just a little love accelerant like the one I used on that bottle of champagne on our wedding night" Cadance said with a smile. Shining Armor stared in shock looking over at Rarity and Boulder Dash, "Uh oh." Boulder Dash had finished his bread slice just as the waiter returned and set two chilled glasses down. He quickly went to work opening the bottle and poured wine into both Rarity and Boulder's glasses before setting the bottle down on the table. "Has Mossiuer and Madameoselle pursued the menus?" he asked. Boulder Dash nodded and said, "Could we please start with an order of the fried calamari suh? Den for my entree I will have the eggplant parmesan." As the waiter turned to Rarity Boulder Dash reached over and took his wine glass and sniffed the vintage she had selected. Nodding approvingly he never noticed what looked like a small heart flash inside the wine bottle for just a moment.
  5. "Mares and Gentlecolts! We are proud to announce the start of the Iron Pony Obstacle Course!" a Unicorn at the starting line cried into a megaphone to the crowds of cheering ponies and creatures. The Unicorn waved a yellow flag as a sign for the judges to sync their watches and then held up a white flag to summon the first contestant. "Our first Contestant, representing Ponyville, is the owner of the largest Tomato Ranch in the area and the thickest skull in Equestria, we are proud to present Boulder Dash!" the announcer said as Boulder Dash entered the track. Never one to turn down an endurance challenge, Boulder Dash had quickly signed up for the Obstacle Course and was eager to show his mettle again. Removing his signature farm hat and waving to the crowd, Boulder Dash smiled to the cheers he recieved from his home town representatives in the crowd. As he approached the starting line he made sure to bow his head low to where he knew the Princesses would be watching from before he adjusted his hat and took his spot on the starting line. "Boulder Dash are you ready?" the announcer asked as he lifted the start flag. Boulder Dash nodded and scrapped his hoof against the dirt like his Earth Pony ancestors. The Unicorn waved the flag and Boulder Dash took off like a shot. Moving at great speed for a pony of such large size. It was only a matter of time before he came across the first obstacle, the Mud Pit. "Too easy, just another mud bath" he thought as he dove into the mud and landed with a loud GLUP. Trudging and marching through the Mud, Boulder Dash's thick neck and head stuck out of the muck like a shark fin in water. He moved just as graciously as well, do to years of slopping pigs and muddin on the farm. As such it didn't take long for him to reach the end of the pit and he crawled out shaking some of the mud from his body like a wet dog before taking off at great speed again as the mud had cooled him off and reinvigorated him as well. Soon he came across the 2nd Obstacle the Barrel Wall. Normally he would just smash through the blasted thing and and be done with it, but he knew that would be frowned upon as the object was to scale it. Again his farm upbringing helped him here as years of lifting and stacking hay bales had given him strength and experience as he jumped up and started to scale the wall. Using his upper body strength to heave himself up, he started to sweat as he kicked up and scaled the wall. As an Earth Pony he was able to feel any weak or wobbly barrels under his hoof and could right himself when need. He finally reached the top and leaped off with a loud "HEEEEEEEHHHHHAAAWWWWW!" Landed with a crash loud enough and strong enough to shake the ground, causing some spectators to think an Earthquake was occurring. Smiling proudly he took off running again and soon came to the third Obstacle, The Long Sprint. Boulder Dash sprinted forward and shot out like a cannon ball. Running as fast as his long thick legs would carry him. He put a lot of strain into it and soon his 2nd wind carried him across the sprint line. Slowing a bit to catch his breath he approached the last Obstacle as he wiped some sweat from his brow. He collected his three apple pies and place them on his large back before taking off through the poles. He placed himself here as he was winded from the sprint, but kept the pies balanced while dodging and weaving through the poles. He tried to not let the aroma of the pies distract him as he worked his way through the poles, not easy for a pony as wide and muscled as he was. But Boulder Dash worked his way through and finally crossed the line at th he end as another pony waved a finishing flag. Boulder Dash dropped his pies off at another table as the crowd cheered again. Waving to the crowd, Boulder Dash went over and dunked his head into a large water trough, taking a deep sip of water before removing his head and sitting watch the rest of the competition. SUBMITTED FOR JUDGING
  6. "Oui oui Madameoselle Rarity, right ze way. We only strive to please und generosity is a most important oui? Zis way to our best table" the waiter said as he led the two across the restaurant towards their table. Boulder Dash followed and noticed how the rest of the guests were dressed to impress and how the restaurant seemed to bring out the posh and proper in every pony. He watched even as the waiter pulled out Rarity's chair for her either trying to impress her or working a good tip. He then sat in the chair across from her and watched as the waiter lite the candles around them. "Oui oui Madameoselle Wine list on the way. Escusi moi!" the waiter said as he hurried off. Glad to be rid of the snobbish plot kisser, Boulder Dash took a moment to admire Rarity under the candlelight. As he did his nervousness and apprehension seemed to vanish as he smiled at her. Taking a sip of cool water, he nodded to her as he said, "The repair work is something I do on the side fer my friends and neighbors. The tomater ranch keeps me busy most of the time and Ma is slowing down keeping to house work. Fortunately I can counts on my lil brother Rocky when I needs him to do his part....when he ain't sneaking off to Sweet Apple Acres to try and catch a glimpse of Applebloom dat is." Chuckling a bit at his joke, Boulder Dash finally loosened up a bit and undid his napkin placing his silverware around the plate professionally. As such neither he nor his guest noticed the pair of Unicorns watching them from the corner. Of course no pony would recognize the rulers of the Crystal Empire thanks to the spell that Princess Cadance had placed on herself and her husband making them look like totally average unicorns. Having visited Twilight and leaving Flurry Heart with her favorite Aunt for a rare romantic evening, the two royals had noticed Rarity and her rather imposing escort for the evening rather quickly. "Is that Rarity I spy....with a handsome strapping stranger. My my how interesting" Princess Cadance said with a sly grin. "Now Cadance dear, let's not bother them. I thought this evening was for us to enjoy discreetly?" Shining Armor asked as he munched on their appetizer. Meanwhile as Boulder Dash made idle chat with Rarity, the waiter returned with the wine list as well as a pair of menus. "Ze wine list as requested by Madameoselle and a pair of entree menus when you are ready" he said. Boulder Dash nodded as he took a menu and motioned to the wine list. "Your da expert on wine Rarity. You pick whatever ya want" he said as he perused the menu to look at appetizers and salads.
  7. Boulder Dash nodded as Rarity walked through the door. He knew she had expensive tastes and thus made sure to find the most expensive restaurant in town. Yes it would break him for a few days, but he knew she was worth it and his Ma had insisted on it. Following her into the restaurant he approached a fancy, pencil mustached pegasus in a waiter's uniform. "Boulder Dash, party of two please?" he said to the waiter. The pegasus looked up and gave Boulder Dash the once over. Like a piece of produce on display at the market, Boulder Dash felt so out of place as the Stallion looked at him. The waiter nodded as he looked at his book, nodding in approval before seeing Rarity next to him. "Ah Madameoselle Rarity! Your truly grace us with your presence and that of your guest! To have the most premiere Pony of culture and fashion grace us with her presence is a true honor" the waiter said as he grabbed two menus and bowed to Rarity. Boulder Dash stood to the side feeling a bit out of place. He wasn't used to these fancy dinners, a hayburger and a pint of ale was all he needed to call a meal. But he knew how much this dinner meant to Rarity and thus tried not to do anything to embarrass her.
  8. Boulder nodded in agreement and gently took Rarity by the hoof and guided her out her door and walked with her into the cool summer evening. Staying in trot with her as he walked he couldn't help but admire the scent of her lilac perfume which seemed to put him at ease. Originally nervous, he worries faded as he took in the gentle evening glow of the setting sun and the rising moon. "The Princesses should be swapping out sure enough. As a sailor I always admired the calm nights, puts one at ease faster then a hot pepper through a sloth" he said as they walked. As he did what ponies were still out and about watched the two walk through town together. Some of the mares from earlier glared at Rarity in jealousy while a few looked excited running off in a quick prance. Boulder Dash snorted a bit in annoyance at that, gossiping was a terrible habit and he knew exactly what he would read in the papers tomorrow. "Hero of Equestria, Fashion Queen, and Element of Generosity spotted hot on the town with a mysterious new colt toy! Who is the lucky Stallion to be?" Shaking his head to get the image out Boulder was relieved when he spotted their destination coming up. "The Red Sky" Restuarant was the hottest and most expensive eatery to open up in Ponyville recently. An off shoot of a 5 star place in Canterlot, it brought the luxury and finesse of Canterlot to small towns like Ponyville, and was so named for the sheen of the sky when Princess Celestia's sun lowered to its final shade on the sky's horizon. Boulder Dash knew it would be pricey, but worth it for Rarity as he opened the door for her so she could step through first as a proper gentle colt would.
  9. If it weren't for his stockier frame, blue eyes, lack of freckles, and his 7 extra years; Boulder Dash could be mistaken for Big Macintosh due to the shade of bright red that creeped into his face as he saw Rarity dressed in her silk gown and her beautified face. His mouth fell open in stupor as Rarity appeared as a Goddess of Beauty to him, she was a natural beauty to be sure, but now the unicorn standing before him was almost divine in her appearance. "Ah bah ah bah bah bah" he stammered and blurted out nonsense noises as he felt her hug him. When she let him go to retrieve her saddle bag he finally was able to get more then two syllables out of his mouth as he looked at her, forced his blush down and said, "Beautiful!" Clearing his throat and focusing he extended his hoof and offered Rarity the white rose Corset and said, "You look very beautiful dis evening Rarity Ma'am. I got dis fer ya and hope you will enjoy yer self dis evening" he said in his pronounced country drawl. Taking a deep breath and offering his hoof he bowed to Rarity almost like a Prince and said, "May I have the honor Ma'am?"
  10. Boulder Dash swallowed the lump in his throat for what had to be the thousandth time as he walked through Ponyville to his destination, Carousel Boutique. As he walked numerous Ponies stopped to stare at him as he walked, Stallions watched stunned and Mares swooned and drooled as the blonde maned, blue eyed Earth Pony walked dressed in a white Sports jacket, sky blue colored shirt, a matching bolo tie, and his mane slicked back with pomade. In his right hoof he carried a white rose Corset and though he had served proudly in the Merchant Navy against pirates and sea monsters, he had never felt more scared in his life. "How'd I get into this?" he thought as he approached the Boutique, yet a flood of memories hit him like a punch in the gut as he recalled the series of unfortunate events that led to this moment. Being asked by Rarity to fix a leak in her Boutique, being jumped by that demon cat of hers, spilling the glue, getting stuck to her flank of all things, hiding in the dragon costume as the crossed town, explaining everything to Twilight Sparkle and then learning all the glue need to come undone was a mix of hot water and yeast was a kicker he would never forget. Yet his honor refused to let such a slight to go unfixed. Thus he had offered to do whatever it took to make it up to her. Naturally Rarity had requested a dinner at a fancy restaurant of her choosing, which he had agreed too naturally even if it broke him for the month. His Ma had been ecstatic of course, dressing him proper and making sure he was up on his manners. Not many got to treat the Element of Generosity to a dinner and he had been put through quite the lessons to impress. Approaching Rarity's door and still haunted by his last visit, he reached out and knocked on the door, swallowing his lump for the thousandth and one time.
  11. Hey everyone! I'm sorry I haven't been on lately. Work, life, and a car accident has taken up most if my time. I am back on and will be posting again. To give you all a taste here is a Pony version of yours truely done by the great and talented Lighting--Bliss of Brony Analysis. https://www.deviantart.com/battlecross61/art/Battle-Cross-Oc-Commission-By-Lightning-Bliss-Dczw-786045027
  12. Smiling at having delayed any hinderance to his plans for now, Silver Blade slauted Fire Walker professionally as she stepped out and even held the door for her in respect. "Aye Captain! I agree that a good rest is necessary fir any officer Ma'am! Rest assured I have da watch Ma'am!" he said in his cockney sailors twang. Seeing it was clear and noticing that everyone was distracted, he went over to the book he had been reading earlier and flipped open the pages he had noticed before being interrupted. Carefully and stealthily he pulled the knife he had hidden up his hoof guard and cut the pages out with out a noise. Pocketing the pages and hiding the knife in one action, the pirate shut the book before anyone noticed and placed it back on its shelf before turning back to the group. As he sipped some of the cocoa Fire Walker had brought in he watch the book mare that had come in mention the Changelings and a thought popped in his mind as he said, "Changelings....aye there be a unique group. Can't say I've met them yet on any sea journey. Dragons are, the Yaks mist certainly....but no Changelings yet. Tell me lass....they use special magic do they? Like dem Hippogriffs maybe?"
  13. Silver Blade grunted as he continued to be pesterd by the Twilight Guard Captain. He gave her credit, she certainly knew how to give someone the third degree but not quite so well as she thought. Fortunately when you plan as long as he had his back story was packed tighter then cannon shot. As such he leaned back a bit and cracked his neck non chalantly as he smiled at Fire Walker and said, "Luck o da draw I guess Captain. Out of me self and the rest assigned to night duty I be one of the only few with past military discipline and training even if it were on her Majesty's Navy. Still I suppose we could say a sea rat with Navy training is better then nought so I pulled the A Stallion post tonight." Looking around he noticed that a few animals aside from their new canine companion had wandered in. Not for nothing but he would have to chat with the guards about keeping their duties serious as a pair of dogs could wander in then who knows what else could pop off. "Nay, her majesty hasn't had a pet since tha hooting pigeon if hers came about some time ago" he said as he looked around for said owl.
  14. Silver kept eye contact with Fire Walker as she gave him a slight 3rd degree. True he knew a professional soldier was a threat reguardless of gender, but in his many years as one of the most wanted pirates on the seas he had learned to keep his true intentions hidden well even from the most prying eyes. As such he walked around the table with his helmet and set it down, bent down and picked up the young pup, and started to gently scratch it's left ear. "I were assigned head of the Night Watch tonight Ma'am. I can report all at der posts and last reports given showed no threats to be seen. Twer a thought to appear in me grey matter to take a moment to venture in here and catch up on some slight reading before the next report" Silver said in his signature navel twang, a slight smirk on his features. He then gently petted the pup's head as he set him down before saying, "After all our dear Princess Twilight does encourage a good book once in a Moon and tonight seemed as good as any. What better way to honor the Princess of Friendships greatest lesson eh?" he said smiling a little devilishly.
  15. Silver Blade nodded to the Stallion as he motioned to the title on the page. Scarlett Mane, Daughter of the Dune, Terror of the West, and Queen of the Pirates! The title screamed in bold black lettering. "Very few can say they crossed swords with that most famous pirate to ravage the seas and survive" Silver Blade said with a smile. Motioning to what looked like a gold bracelet around her hoof he couldn't help but get a smile and a nostalgia on his face as he said, "Funny joke it be that she was born into wealth and nobility but chose a life of plunder, and pillage, and raids on the sea after falling in love with a dashing pirate Captain" he said in his swarthy navel accent Yet the smell of hot chocolate quickly got his attention as well as the sound of a voice he had gotten to know over his time at the Castle of Friendship. Quickly grabbing his helmet, he tucked I under his fore hoof and saluted Fire Walker as she came in. "Ah Captain Fire Walker! A lovely evening to ye Ma'am. Had I known ye would Grace us I would have worn me proper parade uniform" he said with a slight bow.
