  1. Fire Heart hoped that this was the right answer. Well, it was right since it was from the heart, but was it right for the job? She knew that there was some purpose to her fire magic beyond cooking, but all she could think about was teaching magic. Gone were the days of lacking control. Now she had the power and the control. That, my love is the best answer that you could have given me. I will speak to my CO in a few days. For now though, We need to start packing and getting ready. We have a trip to Las Pegasus in a week, and we should remember to have some fun while we're out there." "Oh, wow. I didn't know if that was the best answer! I mean, I didn't know how to really answer that. Thank you for asking your CO. I guess we'll see what happened. Anyway, you're right. Let's get packing. I can't wait until we get to Las Pegasus!"

    The duo decided that it was best to continue on with finding Squish Cover and the unicorns. They quickly set up camp, courtesy of a tree with large roots. It was a perfect shelter, one that could at the least guard them from the cold or some of the smaller creatures. "This will do. It will serve as the good basis for wicki-up. Now we need to get the resources and materials. I get the wood Night and do the building. You get the stones and chestnut leaves. Try to get bay leaves, lavender or wild mint while you at it." "Got it," Night said as she searched the area for certain herbs. While she is not an herbalist, being a soldier offered her some experience with survival skills like constructing huts, starting a fire, or gathering edible or useful plants. It didn't take long for her to find the herbs as well as some aloe just in case one of them would get hurt. "You did well. These will repel the bugs and other crawlies from us for the night. While soldiers are expected to endure discomfort, I say prevention is even better solution." "I agree. We have to endure the elements and harsh conditions, but that doesn't mean that all encounters have to be uncomfortable. She was amazed at the fact that the unicorn was very well prepared, bringing with him a grindstone and several tools. "By the way Night.... We know each other for a while now, but I never got to ask and I am simply curious. What spurned you to enlist into military in the first place?" "Well, at first I didn't want to be a soldier. My father was a soldier, a captain, but now he's retired. I as a filly was a little of a rebel, not wanting to do what my father or anypony told me to do. Then one day there was a colt who was being bullied by two older colts. I had to stop them, to protect him. Nopony should be bullied like that. So I stood up against them, and I got beat up for it. It wasn't bad, but it still hurt. The bullies, however, backed off after I faced them. When I returned home, I was sore, but the colt was saved and I had my cutie mark. But it was then I realized that sometimes defending others meant having to listen to authority. So after that I listened to my dad and mom, but then I realized that the best way to use my talent was to join the military. It was tough, but my dad prepared me for it. The rest, they say, is history."
  3. "Talent wise, I would say without a doubt our organization could always use somepony like you. I mean your Fire Power rivaled my Ice Power. So it logically if they were accepting of me, and my skills, then they would be highly accepting of yours as well. Especially if i put in a high recommendation. However, before I can give an honest answer, I have to ask one very important question. Are you willing to do what is needed to be done to complete a mission? We are an Equestrian Defense force. While we do a lot of recon stuff... we also to a lot of defense and rescue missions. Are you willing to fight... or possibly cause dire harm on others, that may very well be other ponies in order to keep the Princesses, and Equestria safe?" Fire Heart thought about what Ice Storm said. It was noble to consider that she had, in Ice Storm's opinion, a power level that rivaled hers. But then it got serious with the question posed towards the red unicorn: could she do what needed to be done, even harm to others? She had, after all, sworn to herself and to others to control her emotions and not use her fire magic to hurt others. But what would she do if the difference between her and her teammates getting hurt or worse meant using her magic against another? "I...I know I'm trying to not hurt anypony, but if it means that I must defend myself and others from evil, I'd say...yes?"

    Night Watcher examined the journal with Swift, examining the feathers. They weren't any Pegesai feathers but something else. Swift mentioned certain creatures that had such plumage but none of them are from intelligent creatures that could strike at a pony and be able to leave without making a scene. Hearing that somepony was controlling this Beast made Night shiver. Come animals were more tamable than others, but this Beast seemed like this wasn't one so easy to calm and then control. ".....What we have over any of the disappeared unicorns is the fact we are not on our lonesome like them. Of course to maintain this advantage we have to make a choice."swordpony mused while turning his gaze to Night "We can visit Squish Cover office/cottage and see the feathers she collected. I am fairly sure we can identify what kind of creature the 'Beast' based on that. At that point it's pretty clear we will have to face that creature and put it down - it's simply too dangerous to do otherwise, even if it's controlled by somepony's will. Knowing what we will face would give us time to compose strategy and make additional preparations...... But at the same time Cover's aeather signature is still fresh enough that we can follow it. Everfree has chaotic leylines, it's doubtful that this trail will remain if we return here after we examine the cottage. Seeing that there are signs of blood in sight, Squish is probably unharmed. Unless she was devoured whole, but I doubt that. After all, 'Beast' proved to be messy eater previously. It's possible that's it's mysterious handler needs her least for now." "Hmm...tricky. If we explore Squish Cover's cottage, we can confirm what that Beast is, but we may lose where Squish went to. On the other hoof, if we just track the signature, then we are going in blind. Normally, I'd like to be prepared, but clearly we have a case where this Beast is being controlled and whoever is doing so is ponynapping the unicorns rather than simply having their creature kill them. Perhaps this pony is using their magic to do something." She paused for a few moments to think about the matter before saying, "I think we should track this Beast and it's owner down. You're decision, too, of course."
  5. "Yup! I have bits from the missions I go on, and I have a very large amount put away. More than we'd ever really need actually but I keep on hoof for emergencies and the like. Since.... I don't wanna sound all negative and such, but it's mostly a back up clause for you... in the event that well... I don't... return from a mission," At first Fire Heart felt that the large amount of money was intriguing. Perhaps she should inquire about being part of this secret group. But then Ice's next words about her not returning sent a chill down her spine, colder and more painful that the prior ice magic. To think about her being alone, without Ice. No, she couldn't think about her not coming home. "But yes, I think that would be best. Once we get everything build, we use it as a getaway, while still being able to check up on things. Besides. It would be nice to have a retreat somewhere that we don't have to spend bits on." "Yeah, having a place like that would be nice providing we could keep it running. I mean, you have your five stores to take care of and your...missions. Speaking of your missions, I'm considering something, but I wanted to get your opinion. Considering that I'm still looking for something that can best use my talents, except for maybe teaching, do you think I'd work well in your group?"
  6. Hmm... I light of the recent episodes, I wonder if I should do one. Do I just do a normal lesson with say Twilight or maybe a guest lecture with say Luna or Zecora. 

  7. "Right, that would take a lot of magic," fire said thinking about each show and how much time and effort it would take nightly. And Fire would have to agree, that would require them having to move. "So, we would build it and manage it, but not stay there. And this would be like a vacation place for us but also other ponies, too? My only question is, how would we pay for this? Do you have some money from your missions?"

    No sooner had they landed in the forest, Swift deduced that they had landed a short distance away. What they saw was clearly a scene of a scuffle. "Indeed, Miss Squish Cover was certainly was here, there is a very distinctive reading of her aether signature. No later then last 36 hours at that. It's good that REA didn't got here before us, otherwise I am sure they would mess with a possible clues. No offense Night. Lunar Guard isn't nearly as sloppy as the regular formations." "None taken," Night said, "Defenders of the kingdom they might be, but you're right they're no detectives. Anyway, you're right, let's get started. I'd like to leave this forest sooner rather than later." She set to work looking around her area of the crime scene. She heard Swift mentioning something about a Hackberry tree and a tail. Hopefully she could find something. Squish Cover, being a forest ranger, should be carrying something while on her patrols. Something like a knapsack. It was then that she some dirt kicked up like something rolled and came to a stop. She followed the path, taking a few pictures as she went, until she saw up against a tree the torn remains of a canvas backpack laying in a pile. The straps and parts of the bag were shredded, and the contents strewn about, clearly indicating that the bag was pulled off the pony during the struggle. There sitting among the debris was a damaged field journal. "Swift, I found her backpack and field journal."
  9. OOC: That's ok. I just got a cold, which is more annoying than debilitating. "I... actually don't think I can take these off. Swift never mentioned how, and I don't know how to separate them from me. Hopefully though they will remain on my neck and inactive like this for the rest of the night. I'll talk to Twilight about them as soon as I can, perhaps Discord as well. He might be a bit chaotic, but he knows magic. He should be able to help figure out something," Fire could feel the coldness dissipate slowly as she was able to relax. Now that she was able to focus, she activated her fire magic to form a shield around her to warm her body and melt the ice. Although it did took a longer time for her to get back to a level of being comfortable. "Phew! Thanks for turning those things off! It was getting hard to breathe with all that cold. Now that you mention it, I don't think that Swift told me either about the aura. I can't imagine what I'd do if I had those orbs. Maybe you're right. Maybe Twilight and Discord help." She hoped that whatever was causing those orbs to activate would be solved. Otherwise spending Hearth's Warming together might be problematic. "So, you were saying about some fire and ice show? Oooh, maybe a show of two dragons fighting each other, one fire and one ice and the stage would be a round one with mountains that the dragons could cling to, one being a snowy peak and one being a volcano!"

    "Mhmm... those rules are good to follow. Always be prepared I say. And yes, I have seen strange things there like pony eating plants or flowers that if you breathe in their pollen will change you just to prank you." "Huh,I guess it's time already. Normally I would say ladies first! But juuuust in case things go south I want somepony with wings to have eyes on me." "GOT IT, I'LL FOLLOW BEHIND YOU!!!" She watched as Swift jumped out from the ship before she sailed out the back, folding her wings to her sides as a quick dive. She normally would do this from a high place like a building or a high tree, something that she would do to get to the ground as quickly as possible. This was a little different as the ship was still moving ever so slightly and she was way higher in the air. But the same techniques would work here as they did with base jumping. Strangely, Swift fell without the aid of a parachute, but she chalked it up to him having some kind of spell to heave him slow his descent. Suddenly, the stallion was tumbling uncontrollably! "Swift!" Night Watcher exclaimed as she tried to fall faster to catch him. Luckily the stallion righted himself and landed in the forest. Now it was her turn as she opened her wings and flapped them to slow her descent, coming to rest on the top of a tree. Then she did another controlled dive, coming to rest near where Swift landed. "You know, we could have done a tandem dive just to be sure," Night said, "but we made it in. How far are we from the last attack?"
  11. Fire Heart tried to listen to Ice's plans for the new fire and ice hotel, but something was clearly wrong. Event with focusing on her fire magic to try and reduce the patch of ice on her coat, the patch was actually growing larger, causing most of her chest to turn white. But beyond the ascetics which she didn't care about, the pain was starting to get intense. It was as if the energy emanating from those orbs magnified Ice's ability even if she wasn't using her magic. She began to shiver from the cold to the extent that her whole body trembled. "Are you sure you're okay?" "I...uh...c..can you t...take t..those S...something w...wrong with them. T...too c..cold."
  12. A new casino and hotel? This was certainly more than Fire imagined. But this wasn't something she could focus on right now. It was the biting cold coming off her wife which continued to make her shiver and hurt. "Holy Celestia!! I thought those were off! I guess controlling these are going to be a bit harder than I thought. I guess that makes sense though since I just got them... That being said, I'm okay, was just very happy, but my question is are you okay? I know that you have a high sensitivity to cold like I do with fire, and the absolute last thing I want is to have you hurt," It's...ok. I'm just a little cold that's all," she said with a half-hearted smile, although clearly she was in more pain than she could admit. She took a few steps back to lessen the effects of the cold, hoping that she'd feel better. "Anyway... you were saying about the hotel, right? That's neat having a fire and ice hotel. The ice and fire sides seem interesting. Maybe have a lobby that's both, but then have two sides. Ooh! Maybe two hotel towers, one ice, one fire, just not actually ice or fire."

    In no time Night and Swift were airborne over the Everfree Forest. She knew thee group had to get there soon, but jumping from the ship was a little... extreme. Granted she had as a Lunar Guard deployed from an airship before when going to a dangerous area. It may not be the most inconspicuous way to get somewhere, but it worked. In this case, however, there were going to the site of a disappearance. But she guessed the potential excessive predators was a reason to deploy in such a way. Night was dressed in her typical stealth uniform. It was similar to her Lunar Guard armor, only black and without the crescent moon symbols. It made her look like she had no armor on, albeit a little bulkier than her normal self. As for weapons, she had her wing blades, shoes with spikes around them, and two sickles attached to her hips. Definitely not as much as what Swift had, but knowing little of the severity of the situation it would have to do. Then again the orange unicorn seemed to have enough for both of them. "....Still few minutes before we be over the drop zone...." Night nodded as she watched the lights of Vanhoover give way to the darkness of the Everfree Forest. Even with her knowledge of the place it was still a mystery how for so long it remained wild and unable to be populated. " often have you been in Everfree Night? Only on duty, I assume?" "Oh I wouldn't think somepony would be that foolish to enter that forest unless they absolutely needed to. Although, I did hear once of three fillies entering there, something about trying to get their cutie marks? They were ok thought thanks to their caretaker. But I digress, I have been to the Everfree Forest a few times to investigate a monster sighting or, in rarer cases, a pony disappearing. Leave no stone unturned was the idea for going there. I assume you have been in the forest more times than I have."

      Yeah, I know my Internet connection has been stable the whole time, so that rules out the closed connection part.

      Have you tried a different browser?

    4. Lux


      I can try, but usually it works for me on Chrome. 


      Edit: Nope. Doesn't work on Edge either. Odd as this has happened before perodicly. Most of the time this does work and I'm able to upload successfully the first time. 

  15. Fire shivered as she listened to Ice Storm explain who Red Jarl is. The red unicorn knew that something happened in the Crystal Empire that made her suddenly go from being a frozen treats store owner to a secret agent. Of course there were ponies who had an occupational crisis and thought of another better way to use their talents, but this was certainly extreme. But when one's life is threatened, their lives are forever changed. "So, he was the reason why you almost... you know... at the Crystal Faire and why you took your new job. I don't know how my life would change in such a situation, but it would probably be the same." "So I don't wanna spend what time we do have being a negative nancy. And tell you what, I'm going to Las Pegasus in a week. Why don't you come with me? I was originally looking to purchase some land out there to put another shop, but apparently that was another thing that Swift Squall got me was some prime real estate. Hopefully he's not actually trying to make advances.... He was at our wedding for Celestia's sake so he knows I'm taken and won't reciprocate them. Like, I got him gifts as a co-worker... but nothing near anything like this. Maybe you could even help me design that store! It's Las Pegasus, so whatever we come up with, we'll have to make it stand out! and it will probably have to be a casino and have a hotel in it too..." "Yeah, I hope he doesn't get any ideas like that," Fire said as she could feel the air around her turn hot. Thankfully there was no actual flames, and she quickly relaxed as the air returned to normal, "Anyway, designs, huh? Are you talking about it being in a hotel or casino? If so, you'd have to look at their theme. If not, then you have more say." She paced for a moment until a thought crossed her mind. "Hey, what about an ice palace? Everything is made of ice inside a magically refrigerated room. The walls would be covered with ice blocks with designs carved in them , as will the seats, tables and counter. The seats will of course have cushions so the ponies don't have to sit directly on ice. Shaved ice could be sold in a cup made of ice as could any frozen drinks. It would be a cool experience! What do you think?" With that she let out a little laugh. Perhaps Ice Storm's jokes were wearing off on her. As she approached her love, she stopped suddenly and winced in pain slightly. What was making her feel so uncomfortable? It was then she saw a build up of ice on her chest and forelegs. "Uh... Ice, are you feeling ok?" Fire said trying to shrug off the pain and melt away the ice.
