  1. I haven't been roleplaying here for awhile ever since I got a job. I don't when I'll be back here, but I look forward to continuing the roleplay once I'm settled into my new job. 

  2. As Slide arrived back at the food court by taxi, he gasped when noticed that Street Art was missing. "Oh Sweet Celestia! She must be at the station!" He abandoned his meal and flew back to the subway station as fast as he could. Diving down the stairs, he raced down to the end of the platform. Seeing no sign of Street Art, he bravely and carefully made his way along the same wall that he was pinned against. "Street Art! Are you here?" That was when he noticed a pink hue in the distance. He flew towards it. "Street Art, thank goodness I have found you. It's Slide Fortissimo here. We need to get pinned against his subway wall now! Another train is approaching!" Slide Fortissimo got down and managed to pull Art's hoof from under the train track. Lifting her up to the wall, he pinned themselves against the wall as another express sped by, nearly hitting them both where they were on the tracks before. Once the train had gone, Slide breathed a huge sigh of relief. "My goodness, this is just too much for me today. Being chased by a gang member and then rescuing you. I'm happy that we're both alive. Here, I'll carry you out." Slide managed to put Street Art on his back and he carried her gently to the station platform. Ponies on the platform gasped and then cheered for Slide as they emerged out of the tunnel. "Look, this is all my fault. If I hadn't been chased by a gang member today, I would still be at the concert, which I'm going to be late for." He carefully got Street Art off his back. "I was shocked to see that you weren't at food court when I took a taxi back from this station. I'm completely lost for words on how I feel about all this."
  3. "Thank you." Slide took his seat and noticed that Street Art was only snacking on an apple. He looked at his tray of food that consisted of two flower sandwiches with hayfries and a water bottle. Slide then picked up one of the sandwiches with his hoof and took a bite out of it, being extra polite respectively. After wiping his face with a napkin and taking a drink of water, he answered Street's question. "The rehearsal was swell. We're going over two pieces that the audience will enjoy very much. They are called Pictures at an Exhibition and Blue Bells of Trotland." As he began to eat his hayfries, he didn't notice a group of ponies dressed in black walking towards him. Just as he was about to eat another, one of the ponies grabbed his tuxedo collar and turned him to look at the pony. "You're coming with me trombonist." Slide tried not to panic, knowing that he was in a dangerous situation. He took a nervous gulp, sweating a bit with fear. "Why me? There's other musicians here that you should be looking for. I mean...uh...look! It's Countess Coloratura!" He quickly pointed with a hoof at a random direction, causing the group of ponies to look in that direction. Slide got up from his seat, look a quick glance at Art, and then flew away from the square. "Get back here!" Slide heard that the gang pony was catching up on him fast. He was a pegasus pony too! Panting, he flew down the streets of Manehatten, dodging to avoid streetlights and buildings, apologizing as he streaked his way past a crowd of ponies waiting to hail taxi cabs. Rounding a corner, he found a subway entrance. With no time to spare, he galloped down the stairs and entered the station, dodging past commuters waiting for the train. When he reached the end of the platform, the gang pony had caught up with him and blocked his way. The passengers had fled from the platform, with the gang pony looking at Slide with terror and evil. "Well well well, what do we have here? The most professional trombonist in Equestria. Are you really that professional?" The gang pony spat at his face. Slide wiped the spit from his face. "Sir, if you excuse me, I have a concert to attend to in less than an hour. I was just having lunch with a friend-" The gang pony slapped Slide's face with a hoof. "Shut it red pone, or you'll be speaking with the boss faster than you can tune a piano. Understand?" Slide felt the sharp pain of a hoof on his face and began to cry a bit. Wiping his tears, he looked at the gang pony, still in fear. "What are you gonna do to me?" The gang pony came up close to Slide's face and whispered to him. "You see that tunnel over there? We're going to the lair of the boss. He'll want to hear your...music." The gang pony gave a sinister laugh and motioned for Slide to enter the tunnel walkway. He slowly made his way to the stairs that lead down to the path, his hooves clopping against the concrete stairs. At the bottom of the stairs, the gang pony motioned for Slide to start walking and to not stop until they reach their destination. Slide hoped that their destination would not be his final destination.
  4. The red stallion did get a few goosebumps from Street Art's attractive look and blushed with embarrassment. "Y-yeah, I haven't heard about you at all. I would like to thank you for painting this. It's perfect for the orchestra's concert performance and I wish the best of luck on your future works of art." He picked up his saddlebags and placed them onto his back, making sure that all of his belongings were in his saddlebags. "I do apologize, but I must attend a rehearsal now. Enjoy the concert!" He waved goodbye and made his way to the area where the orchestra musicians were gathering. After finding his dressing room and a very quick warm up, Slide flew over to where the rehearsal was about to begin. Taking his seat, the other trombonists in the orchestra where happy to see Slide again and then turned their attention to the conductor. "Right everypony, we'll do warm ups and then practice a few parts from the music. We are pleased to have Slide Fortissimo as soloist for Blue Bells of Trotland." Slide beamed with pride when the conductor addressed him. "I believe Slide has been practicing a long time for this and we hope that he'll be absolutely legendary. Now then, can we have a B flat please?" The warm ups section of the rehearsal commenced, with Slide carefully making sure he was in tune. After the warm ups were concluded, the orchestra rehearsed the two pieces: Pictures at an Exhibition, with artworks created by the finest artists in Equestria, and Blue Bells of Trotland, featuring Slide Fortissimo respectively. Once the rehearsal was over, the conductor dismissed the orchestra, saying that they had to be back in an hour for their performance. Slide left his belongings in his dressing room and went over to the festival food court to have lunch. Carrying his tray of food with his wing, he noticed Street Art again and went over to her. "Ah, hello again. May I sit here with you?" (My apologies for the delay. Please let me know if I should edit this to fix the flow of the roleplay. Thank you.)
  5. "Oh, excuse me. I'm rather impressed by this backdrop you've been painting. It looks almost like Manehatten during a beautiful sunset, if I say so myself." He took off his saddlebags and placed them by his side. Slide felt eager to learn how this pony was able to paint this masterpiece, not knowing that he had to attend a rehearsal soon. "My name's Slide, Slide Fortissimo. Principal Trombone of the Royal Canterlot Orchestra. It's a pleasure to meet you." He observed the pony with interest. She didn't have a fourth leg! Keeping his composure, he didn't want to be judgmental and ask the artist why she didn't have a fourth leg. Noticing that she was covered in paint, he knew that she had been working on that backdrop for a long time. "Oh, I do apologize, but I have to attend a rehearsal soon and then perform with the orchestra, who will be starting off the music festival soon." He paused and adjusted his bow-tie. "What's your name?"
  6. If you can make it there, you can make it anywhere. For that the city of Manehatten was bustling with activity: taxi stagecoach ponies galloping down the streets to pick up riders for an expensive fee, airships soaring high just beneath the clouds, the shrieking brakes from the subway below the ground, and the shrill whistles from trains carrying ponies to their destinations. Unfortunately, one pony was in the hustle and bustle of this activity, carrying his saddlebags in great haste after disembarking the train. Flying down to the subway station below ground, he caught a subway train just in time, making sure that he paid the fare. Breathing a sigh of relief, he placed his bags onto the seat next to him and opened it up, making sure all of his sheet music was organized for the concert. "Hey, you with the saddlebags. What's your problem?" Slide Fortissimo looked up from looking inside his bag at the pony across from him. "Excuse me?" "Don't you know subway etiquette? If you have one bag, you put it on the floor. If you have two bags, you put them in the luggage racks at the end of each car. Same goes for three bags. However, if you have four bags, then you should take a ride on one of those stagecoaches if you know what I mean." "Ah, I see. My apologies sir, but I'm almost late for a performance. You see, I'm perform-" The pony shushed him. "I don't need to know what you do sir, but it looks like you'll do well while wearing those clothes. Be careful out there, okay?" "Absolutely sir. Thank you." Slide Fortissimo placed his saddlebags onto the floor in front of him as the stranger went back to his seat. He hadn't been asked for an autograph yet upon his arrival in Manehatten, but as Principal Trombone of the Royal Canterlot Orchestra, Slide was needed for warm ups as soon as possible. The orchestra was going to perform at the town square soon and he didn't want to be late. After studying the majority of the music, Slide disembarked from the train at his stop and departed the subway in haste, trotting to the town square as fast as he could. When Slide was passing by the main stage in the square, he felt a glimmer of rainbow color from his right. With curiosity, he climbed up the stage stairs and when he reached the backstage area, he gasped and stared up at the colorful backdrop. "Whoa! Who painted this?"
  7. My character application is ready. Please let me know if I need to make any revisions to the application. Thank you and stay awesome. ^^

Extra: Clothing reference sheet: Cutie Mark: Description: A tenor trombone. He excels to be one of the best musicians in Equestria. His talent is playing the trombone in a professional and well rehearsed manner. Story: When Slide Fortissimo was only 12 years old, he got his cutie mark when his family went to see a concert by the Royal Canterlot Orchestra in Ponyville, Equestria. Before the concert began, the conductor announced that the Principal Trombone of the orchestra had broken his one of his legs on the way to the concert, kindly asking the audience if anypony would like to volunteer to play the musical instrument. With determination and bravery, he volunteered. His parents were surprised, knowing that Slide had been practicing the instrument for less than 3 years. However, his twin brother Green Screen was happy to see that his brother was about to do something awesome and wished him good luck during the performance. Trotting up the stairs and onto the stage, the Bass Trombonist gave Slide his spare tenor trombone, whispering to him that his performance will be legendary. Taking a deep breath, Slide took his seat and looked at the music on the stand. It was a featured piece for Principal Trombone! He looked at the audience and then back to the sheet music. He had never played any trombone solo in front of an audience before. Closing his eyes, he took another deep breath, and was ready to play the piece. The audience watched with interest as the orchestra began to play the piece. The concert hall echoed with the sound of a beautiful symphony, resembling a morning sunrise over Ponyville. As he was playing the piece, he felt relaxed and calm, playing the trombone like he never played it before. When it came to the the solo, the sound of the trombone echoed around the concert hall. With agile breath control and swift motions of the trombone slide, he was determined to finish playing his part with ease. After the solo, the piece ended with a sense of triumph. It only took a moment for the audience to feel impressed by the performance and soon, everypony was giving the orchestra a standing ovation. Green Screen was cheering, his parents were crying happily, and flowers were being thrown to the orchestra. The Bass Trombonist hugged Slide with glee and congratulated him on his performance. Thanking him, Slide felt a flash near his rump. He looked and saw that a cutiemark had flashed onto his rump. It was a tenor trombone! The audience cheered when they noticed that Slide had earned his cutiemark. He placed the trombone onto a stand, ran down to his family, and hugged them with glee, crying with tears of joy. The news of Slide earning his cutiemark at the concert made the news in the paper the next day. That front page of the newspaper is framed and located on the wall of his office at his home in Canterlot. As for the injured pony who played the Principal Trombone, he retired after the orchestra finished that year's tour. The conductor of the orchestra visited Slide in Cloudsdale after the concert season ended and asked him if he would like to be an official member of the Royal Canterlot Orchestra. Slide agreed, and with balancing music and school, Slide has been Principal Trombone of the Royal Canterlot Orchestra. Family: Dad (Pegasus): Crescendo Forte, Mom (Pegasus): Melody Screen, Twin Brother (Pegasus): Green Screen Occupation: Principal Trombone of the Royal Canterlot Orchestra, Residence: A house near the theater district in Canterlot. Character Personality: Respectful, kind, and a very awesome pony, Slide Fortissimo has felt like a true gentlepony on occasion. He tries not to talk too much about certain topics, but feels comfortable when talking about something that somepony else also enjoys. For instance, discussing about a new musical on Bridleway in Manehatten. He doesn't want to get too much attention from fans, but after a concert, he'll give time for fans to answer him questions about his performance. He strives to practice the trombone at least once everyday, even practicing it in the park if the weather is good. He enjoys being loved and respected, especially when he is hanging out with friends and his dearest soulmate too. History: Slide Fortissimo and his twin brother Green Screen were born in the month of September. While growing up, they became best friends and always enjoyed doing things together. From the age of 3, Slide was interested in the railways of Equestria and felt happy when his family traveled by train on vacations during the summer months. When Slide entered flying school in Cloudsdale, he and Green were excellent students, knowing exactly how to flap their wings for flying at a safe and comfortable pace. At the age of 9, Slide was required to learn how to play a musical instrument. He choose the trombone because while listening to classical music, he felt the presence of the trombone as if it were playing in the living room. After only practicing the instrument for three years, his family took him to see a concert. At that same concert, he earned his cutiemark at the age of 12. It wasn't until he finished high school at the age of 18 when he left Cloudsdale to pursue a degree in Tenor Trombone Performance at the finest music school in Canterlot. Recently, at the age of 22, he has graduated with a Bachelor of Music Degree in Tenor Trombone, displayed proudly in his office. Character Summary: At the end of the day, Slide Fortissimo keeps to his successful ability as a professional musician. He is very proud of his friends and family, occasionally sending a letter asking about what awesome things are they doing where they live, and is always happy to hear feedback from ponies after certain performances. In conclusion, he wants to make sure that everypony he knows is doing something that they love to do, to keep up the good work, and be absolutely awesome for years to come.
