  1. Raven bit her lip, unsure of just trusting the queen like Icy was, but she didn't say anything. She trusted Icy, and was sure that Icy would keep a close eye on the changelings. "Some food does sound lovely, though I can't want to wander the island... and with your permission, maybe learn a bit about the changelings. No trade secrets or anything, of course, just general things like societal structure and such," she said, smiling slightly. She turned to look at the drones, nodding at them...
  2. Raven hid her smile and slight giggle at Icy's wordplay behind a hoof. "Yeah, one spanner in the works does tend to disrupt one's plans." She said. It was weird. This was the fourth ruler she'd met, and while she was... cautious of the queen, she found herself more curious about the changelings and how they functioned. What their society was like, how they organized themselves. It seemed that they had free will, so the comparison to other creatures the organized themselves into hives wasn't complete, but... She was mildly surprised when Chrysalis basically offered soldiers to Icy, having assumed that STAR could use more members. While Raven hadn't met all the members yet, it did seem like there wasn't enough, and Equestria was a big place. Plus, with the changelings abilities, they could seem like a mysterious force, one that had members able to quickly arrive at any spot of trouble... An idea began to form in her thoughts, one she'd share with Icy later...
  3. Raven smiled at the Queen. "Well, Depending on my stay, I may come back more often... Though it wouldn't be for the spa most likely... That'd just be a nice perk..." She said, a friendly smile slowly working it's way onto her face. She had to admit, this place would make a good retreat when she needed to work on more dangerous things, and the opportunity to utilize the Changelings' network to learn things, maybe even be able to study them, if only to satisfy her own curiosity. "I mean, it really is a beautiful place, and nothing like Equestria... or rather, there's enough differences to make me curious about this place..." She mused quietly, biting on her lip...
  4. Raven watched the queen, noticing the wink. It was strange, now that she was "forced" to sit here with her, she was starting to calm down. She couldn't help but think of what Icy had said, how desperate the changelings were when they attacked. Not to mention, the way Chrysalis looked was interesting. She'd never seen a pony who could rival the princesses, but the queen had to stand at least Luna's height, if not Celestia's. But her form was sleeker, less obviously powerful, keeping in line with the hiding theme the changelings had. Finally, she turned her attention to the conversation, though she said nothing. This bit was Icy's show, and Raven didn't want to mess things up...
  5. Raven trailed through the palace, unable to shake the itching feeling at the back of her neck, like some... ling was watching her. Though it made sense, hide the guard, but allow them quick access to any point they needed to go to. It was in line with what she knew of the changelings tactics, to hide and strike from the shadows. However, Icy's voice broke through her concern. "Yeah, I suppose so, I can't imagine being that desperate or starving that badly..." She said, a understanding of why the changelings acted they way they did starting to form. She supposed it was tough for them to integrate with normal pony society due to the fact they looked like monstrous versions of ponies, but that didn't mean they were. Soon, they entered what was the throne room, though it seemed the Queen received more visitors here than Raven would have expected. She slowly made her way into the room, and sat down in a position midway between the door, and the Queen. "Thank you for letting Icy bring a guest, your majesty... This is actually my first time being outside Equstria's borders, and I'm glad that it could be in such a beautiful place." She said, bowing her head towards the Queen, trepidation still hindering her movements slightly.
  6. Raven smiled as she nodded. "Yeah, this place looks amazing..." She said, surprised by the buzzing of the changeling's wings. It was a sound that could only be described as happy, and she gave a little smile at him. She was nervous, but whether from her slight fear of walking into a changeling nest, or from her meeting so many new ponies like she would here... Shaking her head, Raven followed, a few steps back as she looked around. She was amazed at the beauty of the islands, and how many ponies were there. She quickly caught up as they walked around a bend only to stop in her tracks. The palace was completely stunning, and she barely could follow. "This... Wow... I've traveled Equstria, and Ive never seen anything as amazingly built as that..."
  7. Raven steeped hesitantly off the train, looking at the alien skies, before seeing that Icy had already wandered over to deal with what had lead to this trip. A changling was apparently their point of contact for meeting with the queen... She had to admit, she'd never been this far out of Equestria before, her parents only traveled within it's borders. She couldn't keep the slight shudder from running down her back, but trusted Icy, who said they were nice. She finally approached, a slow walk that still had her taking in her surroundings. "So... Sorry, It's my first time here... and... and I was just admiring the area. We're not in the same plane anymore, are we?" She couldn't stop herself from asking that last part, her interest in how it was accomplished overriding her instincts that warned her of how dangerous the changlings could be...
  8. Raven giggled as she waved goodbye to Prince Blueblood. She then hugged Icy with a smile. "That sounds lovely... Though, I'm gonna need some proper training before we spar again... And the location should help with limiting things like yesterday..." She said, before giving her marefriend a quick kiss. "I actually have a training room, big enough for two ponies to spar in... it's hewn from the very bedrock of Canterlot..." She winkled her nose as she looked into her empty mug, debating whether to order another warming drink or not. "So... What do you want to do now? If you don't have to get ready to head out, that is... I mean, I don't have to leave for a few days..." In truth, her train ticket was for tomorrow, but she could always slip down and change the day. She was having a lot more fun, and with Icy around, she didn't really get lost in own thoughts like she used too... In all honesty, if she could, she'd probably give up her home if it meant being able to stay here, beside her love...
  9. Raven nodded, a soft smile. "Actually, I was talking about a DJ I know... She's, well, she's always a little... All over the place... But what you guys are saying sounds nice..." She stared into her near empty drink, before deciding something. "To... To be honest... I don't know a lot of ponies... I've kinda... Well, I spent a lot of time in my fam... my library..." She confided in her new found friends. "So, do either of you know when would be a good time? I'm actually looking forward to our sleepover now. Hay, me and Icy could put on a bit of a show for you." She giggled, thinking of using her family's training room to spar with Icy once more. They wouldn't be able to fight like they did yesterday, but... It would still be fun, and a good excuse for some water based fun...
  10. "Huh... Well, I could take a look at it, I am quite good at spellcraft... Not to say I'm better than Princess Twilight, or anything, I just mean that every spell I cast... I kinda had to learn how to make the spell itself, even if it looks like a normal spell... because of the horn..." Raven said, as she rubbed the back of her head. She'd had a little bit of a panic when she realized she was comparing herself to a princess, but managed to get mostly over it. "Oh, a... a sleepover... I've not... I mean... It sounds fun." She said, a little nervous about the idea of one. It wasn't that she'd not spent the night with others, or even had guests over before, hay, King Sombra had stayed with her for a couple of weeks. No, it was the idea of it being a party. She'd had bad experiences with parties before, and didn't really like them. "I have tons of unused rooms, so... So I could host... Um... and I might know somepony for music... Though she'd not be very relaxing, if that's what we're going for..."
  11. Raven didn't know what to say. The conversation involved things her family had never paid much attention to, and even when she'd been asked to other nobles' parties she'd not paid much attention to the posturing, to who held which title and which lands. Her family of course had their own holdings, and she had a list of them, but they mostly managed themselves... All those thoughts went out the window when Bluebelle took her first sip of her drink. Raven watched, enthralled by the strange magic at work. She sensed a fleeting touch, a strange twist... She was probably one of the few who could even sense that much, all because of her cracked horn leaving her a little more sensitive to thaumic fields. "That's... Wow! I've never seen any kind of magic like that, I mean, I've heard about changelings, and their magics, But I've never seen them, or their magic for that matter, and this definitely seems pony based anyway, I could tell that much..." Raven said excitedly, her words almost running together. She only trailed off when she looked over at Icy, which caused her to blush. She ended up staring down into her cup of hot chocolate, embarrassed that she'd gushed so much...
  12. Raven nodded at Icy's explanation. "Yeah, I've not read anything on the subject of surges myself, well, besides caution when raising foals..." She ordered a hot chocolate, and sipped at it. She shivered a small amount as she warmed up a bit. She reassuringly nuzzled Icy before speaking once more. "I think also there's the fact that to most ponies, if it doesn't affect them, it's not a problem... I mean, even in Canterlot there's criminals... I've had to fend off muggers before."

    Training and sword play (CLOSED)

    Raven stood up onto her back hooves as well, the armor not hampering her movements. The mare that would be training her looked hardened, like she'd seen the parts of Equestria and the lands beyond that were not pleasant, and her stance was easily read as practiced. Raven took a deep breath, before moving forward at a pace that clearly showed she'd fought like this before. She moved with precision, her practice from when her parents training her coming back in the form of muscle memory. She stepped in close, moving her right foreleg into a uppercut, if it connected that is. She had no doubt that her trainer either intended to counter, or use her own movements to throw Raven's weight around. It was, after all, what her family had spent years developing, so the technique was familiar. While she could counter with a spell, she remembered an old lesson, to never reveal all of your secrets too early...

    Celestia's Grand Birthday (Open - see OOC)

    Raven's dancing wasn't great. Matter of fact, it was clear that she'd never set hoof on a dance floor before. That didn't matter to her, though. She was there, Icy was there, there was music... It was all she needed. She smiled softly as they danced, though she did notice that Sombra seemed to be reluctant to join Princess Celestia on the dance floor. Then again, he didn't seem the type to openly display his softer side, so maybe he was simply afraid of making himself a fool. As the music ended, she was a little surprised at Icy's kiss, though she quickly melted into it. As she did, her horn started to spark slightly, like it always did when they kissed. The kiss was soon over, and Raven couldn't answer with anything other than a light giggle at Icy's question, before she made her way over to the tables, by Sombra. She watched Icy and Princess Luna dance, happy that her marefriend could be so carefree, even around those she looked up to. Soon, the sparking died down, and she shook her head to clear the rest of the fuzzy feeling away. "So, Sombra... I take it you're not going to be needing the room in my house anymore... are you?" She spoke softly, almost like it hurt her a little to ask. She was happy for him though, there was no better mare than Princess Celestia, after all, though her sister was definitely in the running...
  15. Raven frowned as she thought back to the day before. "I don't think so... There was right after the incident at the joust, and then right before we went to bed, but that may have just been my magic reacting to my emotions... Wait... Are... Are you saying... I... I may be like you, but with Fire? I mean, My magic's always looked like fire, but it's never actually been fire, as far as I know..." She looked downcast as the realization dawned on her, the thoughts causing her to become saddened. What if she ended up hurting Icy, or worse... She wouldn't be able to live with herself. The question Icy asked of her almost escaped her attention, so deep in worry and fear she was. "I... No, The only things I know of Princess Luna is through my family's journals... Mostly from before the whole Nightmare Moon thing. Oh, and of course, the copy of Predictions and Prophecies I have... I always thought the story was tragic though, being trapped in feeling no one wanted you around, to the point where your hoof is forced to do something terrible to prove your own worth..." She answered as they walked down the street, turning her head away as a thought entered her mind. "Actually... Now that I think about it... I kinda can't help but think of my own past... One of the reasons I studied independently was because of the teasing and... Well, and bullying I received in magic school, thanks to my horn... Of course, I wasn't much better to the other students... There were a few broken legs... I... There were times I couldn't control my anger..." Her tone was soft, and while it wasn't the full story, which involved the fact the legs broken belonged to several older students, ones who had considerable more influence then her own family did, it was clear it was a time she regretted deeply...
