  1. Heh, I won't allow myself to pass this. I will be participating with Squall of course.
  2. "I think it's more because of..." Swift started to speak, trying to explain that his hiring issues were due to some friendly haunting, but before he got that far the Princess launch into explaining her mane's fabulousness. What she said wasn't really encouraging.... "Spa? I won't go there! I am a warrior not some..some...coxcomb!" Squall objected. "Alright then. See you later this week then Blue!" he said along with a hoofwave as royal pony departed. Swordstallion paused for a moment before speaking to Applejack. "You know He...She? Gosh, this is confusing...Errr.... Blue's two halves are becoming so different that you start to think it's a pair of siblings sharing a body instead of one pony." unicorn noted. "I wonder what Celestia thinks about this? He had a nephew for so long and suddenly BLAM! Two-in-one family package." "Your memory does well. I am Swift Squall Squallcoast, Count of the Fillydelphia. While I am a noble, I like to believe I am made from a very different piece of cloth then those from a 'lot. I am not afraid to make my hooves dirty for example." Squall introduced himself before giving a meaningful glance at the blade strapped to his side. "Although it's not up to me to judge that, is it?" noblepony reflected moments later. "Yes. Yes she. You would be surprised at what other things she's also right about..." Swift smiled while rubbing the engagement bracelet on his leg affectionately. "Well if Fire spoke about me to you as much as she told you about myself.....I assume you wouldn't buy it if I would say I am after your product or a peck on the cheek?" unicorn answered the orange mare's question with a chuckle. "Not to diminish value of either. I heard that both are top notch." Swift quickly reassured. "Seeing that you favor honesty I will be blunt. I have work proposition for you. One that would require a mare of your talents, Miss Applejack. Nothing that would require your permanent dedication, like maintaining your farm, teaching in the School of Friendship or being in a Twilight Guard. Still it would take some of your time nonetheless. If you don't mind I would save laying out further details for later. Would meeting in your home this evening for further explanations?" he asked.

    I don't understand....where's the skulls?
  4. It was another day of businesses travel for Swift Squall, and this time it brought him to Ponyville. Although - for a change - vising the town was his intention right now. Noblepony sough to met with a certain farm mare who became very famous indeed. It was funny how in recent times, his travels often brought noblepony to Ponyville. But perhaps he shouldn't be surprised. Judging by all those nation shaking events, it seemed that the small town in the very heart of the land was on it's way to become a next Roam. And as all knew, all roads led to it. Regardless, Swift embarked to search for Miss Applejack right away after his arrival. And lo and behold, there she was! Swift head from his sweet Fire about a certain...marketing campaign...that the orange mare undertook to boost sales of her product. And his fiancee also informed him that it seemed to work very well indeed. So well that it lured another familiar face here as well... "At least you have a cook Blue. Besides Oak Branch nopony want's to work in Squallcoast Manor for some reason." swordstallion said, as he approached the pair from the side. As always wearing a duster with his company logo over his muscular frame, a half transparent jade shades resting on his muzzle and with a trusty blade strapped to his side. "Eating out is nice, but it get's tiring when you live a mile out of the city...Sometimes you just want a cup of cocoa and a croissant in your bed." "Hello Blue. Nice looking mane today. What's your shampoo? I could...uhhh...use it." Swift greeted the Princess while brushing away strand of his hair out of his shades. It was obvious from where he was coming from - Squall's mane was very long, probably enough to use whole bottle in one go. "And hello to you too, Miss Applejack..." Swift started as he turned towards earth pony mare "Fire and your cousin spoke a lot about you. A real fount of agricultural knowledge Brave and hopelessly stubborn.. And owner of a keen trade sense I see...." Fillydelphian noblepony mused while glancing at the now half empty table of apple bushels. "Good. Equestria needs more small, family centered local businesses. And I am all in supporting those businesses getting a little bigger...." he added while fishing out from his pocket a sack that -from the it's looks and sounds it made - was filled with money. Swift couldn't help but smirk upon seeing Applejack turn the table on the Bluebelle. Silly Princess, you thought you will outdo a married mare? "Oh by the way Blue..." Swift asked when he remembered something. "Do you have a free time this week? I want to speak with you about this IMAGINE thing you have going..." he asked.
  5. "So that how You feel hmmm?" Ossia mused as Blueblood put into words his gripes with heroes. While she could somewhat sense that it was not the whole stroy, nothing that Prince said was untrue - so she chose not to pry further for now. "Well said. Although I have feeling you wouldn't find my mane silver Your Highness..." she added while flipping strands of her hair teasingly. "I...well I have a different issue. I told you that from where I am from....'heroes' doesn't matter much did I? Well the fact is, even that what they do....makes no difference. As you said they leave a mess but never have enough class to clean after themselves. And for example...." Ossia waved her hoof towards the image of Sunlight Sentinel that was hanging from the skyscraper in the distance. "How long she was around. decades? Centuries? And yet nothing she did resulted into any lasting changes, doesn't it? Could use all this time on something more productive I assume" disguised alicorn stated. "Never a permanent solutions, only a band-aids, quick fixes. And for what? To maintain those moral high ground of theirs? To make themselves feel good, superior? Ha!" Ossia didn't bothered to even hide her mocking anymore. "Hypocrisy. They may fight monsters as you pointed out Prince, but at least those are honest in their desires. And as time goes on you begin to wonder....does the monster inspired the hero, or the hero inspired the monster...?" she mused before pausing, giving Blueblood something to mull over. "Oh...sorry, your right. It seems that I did some wherriting myself didn't I? Shall we?" she asked before presenting her hoof to Blueblood, allwoing the stallion to lead the way. "Oh my, how considerate for you! Although I hope it's not the only meal we end up sharing." she said, to noblepony's proposition. They didn't gone far however before ground shook with such force that even she felt herself sway on her legs. Gripping Blueblood firmly, she prevented him from falling over. Just before them was.... "Oh splendid..." Ossia said, her word dripping with sarcasm. "One of those messes you mentioned in the making....." she commented upon seeing few ponies and non-ponies in the costumes clashing against mountain of muscle of the dragon....
  6. Sooooo....are we getting Nightmare Night event this year?

    1. Corsair

      Corsair

      Maybe not Nightmare Night, but there is something in the works.  Stay tuned!

  7. "Oh, there is no need to be worried Prince. I have no plans of leaving anytime soon." Ossia said with emphasis. "Not when there is such...perceptive company to be around." she added with a smile as noblepony planted his kiss on her hoof. The disguised alicorn couldn't help but feel a pleasant shudder passing through her back - this was surprisingly enjoyable. She couldn't help but imagine how good he will prove to be with all other kind of kisses she planned for him to go through. Ossia studied the garden carefully and with great focus. The plans there...their changed and twisted appearance was a result of powers that even her great magical skills would have hard time to replicate. Which she didn't found all that surprising really. Her prior visits to this realm had already pitted her against being with wast and strange capabilities. That said it never hurt to do your homework - di Nerezza made a mental note to revisit the garden in more quite hours. Alicorn's transfixion was broken when Blueblood spoke again. And while her outside appearance still wore the same enigmatic smile as she did through this entire meeting, inside she felt herself grow with excitement. She already knew about those 'heroes' and the connotations this word brought in this dimension. Ossia remembered some members of Hopesguard referring about themselves using it. It was this 'Academy' that was still mystery for her. This could be an invaluable opportunity to learn about it! But she had to play her cards carefully, otherwise Prince would become suspicious. Perhaps she could use that tinge of disdain she heard in his voice to her advantage? "Ah yes we have few of those back from where I came from too. They don't amount to much when it comes to big picture however." she said. It wasn't a lie either, now that she though about it. "....It seems you aren't an big enthusiast on the concept either. Do you wish me to lend an ear Your Highness?." Ossia added, and to her own surprise, she felt a twinge of sympathy towards the white stallion.

    New Age, New Edge [Ciraxis, LunarDisplay]

    The nobelpony and his entourage were completely absorbed with test run observations, when the patrol arrived, with Celestial in tow. "Hmmm?" Squall murmured, feeling the rush of air and the clanking of the armor. when door opened behind him. As everpony else he turned around to see reason for the disturbance. Which turned out to be a whole unit of his guards. It seemed that Swift really believed into investing into safety of his worker, because every single one of them was armored head to hooftip. The royal guard could wore a cardboard boxes in comparison "Is that...?" the quilin mare asked clearly surprised, unlike her boss who could only smirk as he was proven right. "Well what do you know. Seems my instincts were right." he said before walking up to the unit leader. "Thank you for your hard work. By the way did she had any weapons?" Swift said to his employees before posing a question. "All the day's work Sir. And indeed she did. This blade" the commander said in response before hoofing to the unicorn Sapphire's sword. Squall proceeded to unsheathe it before apprising the weapon with an eye of the connoisseur. "Hmm tempered Aquelian steel, with moonsilver coating on the edges I see. Not a bad choice by any means. Not new but in great shape, maintained with great care." he commented aloud before making a few practice swings. His gaze shifted to Celestial and frowned. "Why are you still holding her?" he asked. "Well she's still paralyzed Sir. She would fall otherwise." commander explained. "Then why don't you put her on this armchair? She's not a sack of potatoes you know! Also errr..." Swift hesitated while the guards moved to fulfill his command, placing still stunned mare on the piece of furniture under the wall. "Yes Sir?" one of the soldiers asked, noticing his boss indecision. "The twelve of you...is a wee bit to much. Especially since you still aiming your stun batons at her." swordstallion pointed out with a raised hoof. "Yeah, not to chime in, but Mister Squallcoast is right. It's getting a little too crowded here." Matsunaga added. "Oh...apologies." commander said. Despite his voice being muffled , it was clear that he was little embarrassed. "Nonononono, it's fine it's fine, I understand." Swift quickly interrupted. "Old habits die hard. I used to be in that business myself as you know. Just...well four of you will be more then enough. And once again, thank you by you hard work. Really quick response!" he added a few more words of encouragement before his attention turned towards Sapphire once more. "Where were we? Ah yes, this...." noblepony recalled before making a few more swings at the air. Seemingly satisfied, he sheeted the blade and leaned the weapon against the armchair, apprently nonchalant about the prospect of armed intruder being in the same room as himself. "Perfectly balanced. A little too light and short for me, but that should be expected. Moonsilver is not cheap. Was this custom made for you?" he asked but quickly verbally backspaced. "Err...Well...you don't have to tell me right away. Let me know when you can pull off a raspberry alright? Also could those daggers in your mane and tail stay where they are? Thank you." nobelpony said, earning a surprised looks from four present guards. Before Squall could add anything else, a loud noise, coming from outside resounding thought the air. Between roar and screech, the metallic reverb made it clear it couldn't come from lungs of any living creature. "What in TARTARUS was THAT?!" Swift asked, forgetting about the unicorn mare for a moment. "...It...was a roar, Sir?" Kei suggested bashfully. "I could hear that much. What I am asking, why does it even has this feature?! What is this, Harebro toy?!" nobelpony added in irritated tone. Now that she had a first-pony-view, Celestial Sapphire could clearly see what the metallic goliath was. In shape it resembled and an avian or one of those long extinct reptiles, but it was larger then either of them had right to be. Three glowing cyan light could be seen of a profile of it's head, glowing thought the dust cloud. It was safe to assume that the other thee would shine on the other side. It had a gray, metallic surface, although it appeared to be intentionally matted. A faint aether light of the same color as it's 'eye's could also be seen, emoting from the metal giant joints. Was this...a golem...? "How I am supposed to pitch that to Princesses? How can I expect them or any Army officials to treat this seriously if things like these will keep happening?" Swift ranted further. "Well Sir....from the readings it looks like it doesn't hamper any of Vortex's functions. This is our first real test. And....." Kei said before another roar pierced the air. "It appears Annurca is having fun." quilin mare lampshaded when ringing in everpony ears stopped. "OH MY GOSH, THIS IS AWESOME!" could be heard coming from the radio speaker. "Also, I want mine to do that too when it's finished! I mean, it's called 'Roar' mister Squallcoast!" quilin mare demanded. "Fine, have it your way,. But tell engineers that NO hidden functions from now on! This isn't one of those Neighponese mangas!" businesses-stallion said before turning towards the pony that was making notes. "Put that one under..Intimidation factor, I guess? Psychological weapon? Yeah either of the two." unicorn shrugged before turning towards the intruder. "All better I see. Good. Probably you have a lot of questions but as the host I believe I have priority when it come to that..." he started but paused when he saw a look in Sapphire eyes. "Oh for Celestia Solar Rum sake, you not one of those idiots who took Ogres & Oubliettes way too seriously, aren't you? Please say you not." Swift said, his expression making clear how exasperated hie was with the situation. Swift took one of the sitting stools that was in the room and brought it himself, before putting it down and taking a seat across Celestial Sapphire . "Well alignment chart or not - time for a quiz. First question, what made you think trespassing on private property was a good idea? Especially one that serves as a proving ground?" Swift asked. "And yes, I said 'Private Property'. I mean, You had to go past the signs, right? Legally purchased by my company. Should I show you ownership papers Miss? I can get a copy here in five minutes. I even negotiated with Buffalo Tribes you know. Made sure that here is not one of their pastures after one of those rare rainfalls, ancestral graveyard, holy site or whatever. Which means that those that are allowed to be present here are only TEMPEST Corporation employees, or government officials. And correct me if I am wrong, but you look like neither. Which means if THAT would step on YOU....." Swift pointed out at metal behemont outside the dragon glass window. "....well, though luck. You would had only yourself to blame." he summed up before pausing. "Second question is - what do you think we are doing here? Take your time on that one. I wait." he said, with the tone that made it clear he wasn't expecting a correct answer. "And third....You seem like a mare that care a great deal about her property. Shame you aren't as careful with things that belong to the others. Let us see..." the orange stallion brought to his face a note that unit captain passed to him earlier along with Sapphire's blade. "Unauthorized entry, property destruction, burglary, robbery. Seems about right, is it?" Swift mused. "Well the third question is,- Can you give me a reason to NOT sic my army of lawyers at you?" Squall said with threatening growl while glaring at her with those emerald eyes of his.
  11. Ossia giggled when Blueblood mentioned Itaily. And - rare for her - it was a chuckle devoid of malice, driven instead from amusement that the two of them - despite such massive difference - could have similar tastes. Who could have guessed? Also, apparently the Prince had some spine after all! This will only make ensnaring him all more delicious ❤︎. "Same. I rather....fond of the work and arts coming from the region. They can be very...inspiring..." she said with a glint in her eyes. "Oh how kindly of you ♪." she chimed and took Blueblood's hoof without hesitation. Allowing the some small victories should make him overconfident...."Oh, how firm grasp you have Prince. I hope hooves aren't only things you grasp with such....enthusiasm." "I not sure..." Ossia mused, pretending to ponder over Prince's question. "From what I sampled...it would be a crime to put one above the other. I want to see E~v~e~r~y~t~h~i~n~g." she said with feeling, while gifting the Blueblood with another smile and half-lid gaze. "Surprise me, Fair Prince❤︎." he added while tilting her head to the side. Gosh, teasing him was soooo fun! .

    A Wedding of Northern Lights (Pretzel, Dusty, Open)

    "A wise policy." Squall mused when Halvard mentioned his clan architectural choices. "Very well then. I too will look forward for our talk them . A month or two from now, Frauwaz Halvard . It would be rude to intrude on newlyweds honeymoon." he noted. Squall couldn't help but ponder Halvards words. Or rather pondering what he didn't say. Paradoxically it was rather compelling in itself. "Only Long Guo?" he mused to himself when Halvard was beyond the earshot, as he disappeared to take his place according to the ceremony. Was something taking place in Neighpon? Something so important that forced island nation's watchful eyes to gaze inward? That would be...unsettling... "Uhhhh, questions for later. Focus Squall!" noblepony scolded himself in his mind, to bring his own attention to here and now, and more importantly to those that accompanied him. "Oh?" he mused when his wife-to-be mentioned an offer-she-couldn't refuse. "What spy-novel super-villain is blackmailing you Dear?" ha asked playfully, but with corner of his eye glancing meaningful at Purple Princess. It was enough the his Beloved work-time revolved around Castle of Friendship. Their free time didn't had to. "I see Las Pegasus naming customs devolved sine the last time I was there." he responded snarkily when Fire name-dropped a club of obvious kind. "Well then Dear." Swift whispered back to crimson pegasus "I am happy you were thinking about me but...it appears the cook didn't got the memo." he said before shoving his drink under Fire's muzzle to smell. "I know how cinnamon smells. This isn't cinnamon. And I don't have ageusia. Or anosmia for that matter. I think. But if I did how could I tell that thhose kringles are shooo goofwwwff?!" his last words devolving into a mixture of munching and pure delight. When Fire turned to see his face she could see Swift cheeks all bulged out and his eyes teary-eyed over the bliss brought by the Whitescar pastry. That was a first. Soon the sound of horns resounded through the halls and ever-pony and non-pony took their respective seats. Princess Twilight may have been discreet for a caribou, but not discreet enough for a fellow unicorn, especially one as eagle-eyed as Count Squallcoast. Noblepony rolled his eyes at the sight - figures that Her Highness wouldn't be able to help herself with her 'field notes.' "Everything must be a research it seems." he muttered quietly. Which came out as "Efhhiyng mff fe eafferhh f feemks" because Swift was still 'discreetly' stuffing himself with more kringles. Three down, thirty seven to go!

    After changing his clothes, Squall finally arrived to the observation site. "Is everything ready?" Swift asked, while giving a glances over his shades to the assembled crew. "Yes Sir! All roaring and ready to go. Alexandrite also signaled that she already boarded the Vortex as well." one of TEMPEST employees stated. "Good. Now then, rise the blast shelters and take your positions." noblepony ordered. Upon his his, the very ground beneath the camp and beyond started shaking minute later. Some of the standing tents even fell over because of those tremors but Squall paid them no heed - everything of importance was already moved to the buildings that were now rising from Pinto Desert sands. "You know Sir..." a female voice said to Squall through the raised dust cloud "When we built this a year ago I didn't knew what to think." the mare admitted. "But now I can't deny how convenient it is that we have access to all of this." "It pays to be prepared Miss Matsunaga." Swift mused. "Although to be honest I was hoping it would be REA that would make use of those proving grounds instead. Well, perhaps they still will - especially if I manage to gather Princesses support behind 'Camelot Project'. I have a feeling that REA younger officer cadre will be behind it, and some older and far-sighted commanders like General Pummel or Admiral Bluewood." unicorn gave a heavy sight just as they reached the shelter that doubled as observation and command center. "But we have to make a good impression if we hope to succeed with this. Equestria can't be allowed to fight with sticks and stones any longer." Swift added as he opened the heavy metal doors and the duo headed inside. "What's the status?" nobelepony immediately asked the operators that were already inside and studying the reading from the equipment. "Aside from visibility everything is green Sir. Captain Annurca also reported that everything is ready from her side. We only waiting for the dust to settle to start." "Good, but allow me to reconfirm this." Swift mused before leaning over the radio communicators. "Can you hear me Alexandrite? Is everything fine on your end?" "Loud and clear. Also, there are no problems with Vortex." Earth's mare voice answered through the speaker. "This is fine to hear, but I was referring to You." Swift clarified which lead to an awkward pause. "I....Well I am a little nervous. This is first time in Vortex fully assembled, and it's so different from airship or seafaring vessel...." she admitted. "That's natural Annurca." Swift reassured his employee "After all, it's something that was never done before. We writing a new chapter in the future history books." "......It it's the page I was expecting to debut at Sir." Alexandrite confessed. "It never really is. But know this, there is nopony better to write it then you are Alex." he added, showing his support. ".....Thank you Sir. I keep that in mind." was heard through the radio. "I know that you will. Also, remember that most of weapon armaments are not a real deal today - we leaving subsequent tests. Now.....IB-01 'Vortex'......BEGIN!" ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ Sapphire was a lucky mare. Not only the she chose the one of places build from solid materials - thus still standing the unexpected quake - but it was also storehouse of some kind. Water, food and many more mysteries hiding in the wooden crates - all that curious mare like her could want. Not only that, the storehouse also had a window for some reason, one that gave her the first-pony-view at the rising stone structures. The camp essentially tripled in size in just five minutes! Now it couldn't be called small by any means. But it wasn't the only thing that she could see rising. Through the dust cloud Celestial could observe a massive, avian shaped giant standing up...one that had to be 100 hooves tall! ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ Over the control room a oud cheer could be heard. While this was just a start-up nopony could withhold their enthusiasm as they saw the metallic behemoth riing and taking it's first step through the dragon glass window. "This is Alexandrite. All systems green and responding...although controls appear to be a little oversensitive. Requesting permission for adjustments." the Apple mare asked over the radio communicators. "Granted." Swift agreed. While his face displayed absolute control, inside he felt immense satisfaction. What they were doing today exceeded imagination of most Equestrians. Swift knew that sooner or later the technical novelties they were testing here will make their way to the lives of the average ponies, hopefully making them more enjoyable and easier....even if just a little bit. For now he had to settle with making them safer.... This much was certain.... So why he had....this feeling of anxiety present at his mind? "....Kei..." he finally said to the quilin mare that was accompanying him. "Yes Mister Squallcoast?" "Send it patrols. With stun equipment if you will." businesspony asked "During the test? Now? Are...are you expecting somepony here, right now Sir?" Kei asked, clear surprised. "I know that's timing unusual but I just had a hunch Miss Matsunaga. And you learn to trust your hunch after so many close calls as I had...." he murmured quietly, with phantom pain of long gone scars creeping on his back. "Very well Sir. I am sending patrols now." "Thank you. And just in case you apperhoof somepony...bring them here. I don't want to miss any of this." Squall asked, transfixed on now moving Vortex.
