  1. The mare's listening ears were on high as she sat quietly, letting the hippogriff expound upon her feelings. As she went on, Starlight couldn't help but to feel a kinship with Silverstream's worries. After all, everything that lead her to where she is in life was catalyzed by the 'loss' of a friend. It was never an easy concept to think about, losing touch with somepony that you care about, that you see every single day and spend so much time with. To think that in one single moment that could all change and be snatched away from you in the blink of an eye. It's like a part of your world crumbling down...But what she had taken years to learn, the students had so much more time to see. Despite her misty eyes, Starlight spoke up at last a moment after SIlverstream finished. "Oh...I know that feeling all too well. The idea of losing a friend can be terrifying." the mare would rise up to her hooves and move to Silverstream's side, gently laying a hoof on her shoulder. "When I was a filly younger than you, I lost touch with a good friend. The only one I had at the time at that." she'd chuckle softly and continue. "The hurt and loneliness made me a really bitter pony...I did a lot of things I regret. But then I met Twilight and the girls and...even if I didn't realize it at the time, things started changing for the better." she shook her head and laughed. "I'll spare you the boring details on that and get to the point...I finally ran into that friend again after all those years. Things were...a little rocky for a bit, but I found out that even after all those years apart, in the end? We were still friends." Starlight smiled softly, pausing for a moment before continuing again. "Sometimes friends part ways, and they may not see one another for months or years. But no matter the distance, no matter the time, they'll always be right with you." the mare would gently poke the hippogriff's chest, just by her heart. "Growing and learning on your own is nothing to feel bad about. Because your friends will always be there. And if you ever do part ways, think of all the wonderful things you'll be able to share once you reunite. Change is nothing to be afraid of, because near or far, your friends will always be with you. Me included!" she'd finish, offering Silverstream a little hug for comfort.
  2. Starlight chuckled softly, Silverstream was always such a bundle of energy, it was good to see that extended beyond school. That kind of positive attitude would carry her far in life. "That's wonderfully nice of you, Silverstream, I'm certain Sandbar appreciates it!" she'd say with a smile and a nod. It was good that the children were learning to share the weight of responsibility. No one pony can carry everything on their shoulders, at least not for long. "As for getting some apples." she went on to explain, just as Smolder arrived. "Applejack's got a sort of special sale going on today. Five bits for a bushel! Buuut there's a bit of a twist to it." Starlight glanced back over towards the booth where AJ and a mare she seemed rather familiar with were gabbing and chuckled. "But if you don't know, I won't spoil the surprise for you." Starlight gave a little wink and adjusted the bushels floating at her side. "You girls have a great day, I'll see you all later!" the mare would wave once more before moving to make her way back off to Ponyville, she had some apple prepping to do!
  3. Taking a moment to step up to the supplies, Àilóng would exchange a few pleasantries with the stall's owner before returning to Yuè's side with a smile, laying them out on the table before them. Vibrant reds and purples were apparently going to be used with the materials the disguised dragon had chosen, as well as a bit of yellow to accentuate. "Oh you know you're free to ask anything of me, Yuè." he'd reply with a smile as he started into his part of the work. "Truth be told it is much like your own celebrations! Even some of the stuffiest amongst us find themselves loosening up and partaking in dances and games with their friends and neighbors. Our homes are decorated with colourful lanterns and much time is spent together fixing things like yuanxiao, fagao, or yusheng." he couldn't help but to lick his lips a little and laugh. The food was usually the best part of these celebrations, with the mare at his side that was easily beaten. "But what of you and yours? How does the palace celebrate this most wonderful of occasions?" Àilóng asked with a tilt of his head. A large part of him assumed that his poor friend barely got a moment to even think about the holiday, let alone celebrate it, but knowing her brother as well as he does the bigger part of him was certain she at least had a little time to indulge in some 'frivolity'.
  4. Oooookay. Scratch that apparently. First day within the first hour and somepony was already here. Well that was no trouble, it was what she was here for after all! Starlight smiled as Silverstream made her way in, it was a little strange seeing her without her notebook in tow, but really that was neither here nor there. "Good morning Silverstream, of course! Come right on in." the unicorn's horn would light up and gently slide out one of the seats in front of her desk for the hippogriff to take a seat. The mare herself would set up a little straighter and scoot closer to her desk. Silverstream was certainly what one could call inquisitive, so it was difficult to guess just exactly what sort of friendship question she could have. "Okay, ask away! And if you'd like a cup of tea, just let me know, Applejack sent me several packs." she would reply with a soft laugh as she settled in to hear what Silverstream had to ask.
  5. Starlight would giggle softly at her friend's blush. Poor mare had such a hard time believing that something like this could be centered around her more than just the apples "Now Applejack, don't sell yourself so short. I think most everyone in Ponyville thinks you're something special. I know I do!" the unicorn gave her behatted friend a little smile as they went about finding the apples she had ordered. Truth be told, Starlight had entirely expected there to not be a Grenadier left on the farm. Not many ponies really seemed to use those much! But AJ always seemed good at pleasantly surprising her friends. Nodding at Applejack's advice she would glance over in the notebook as she wrote. "That doesn't sound like too bad of an idea, I had read about them melting really easy when they cooked. Which had me thinking of trying apple jam, but I can hardly say no to a recipe from you!" With the bits already laid on the table, Starlight would slide them over with a hoof. With her other forehoof on Applejack's shoulder for balance the mare would lean in and give the farmer the other half of the payment: a sweet little kiss upon the lips, a second per bit seemed like the fair deal! With that somewhat short transaction taken care of, Starlight would part lips and lift the bushels up to her side with a flare of her horn. "Thanks a lot, Applejack! You should try to come by tonight, I'd really appreciate the help with the applesauce. I've learned some cooking stuff from Pinkie but I'm far from what you could call professional." Starlight said with a laugh and a little shake of her head, thinking back to some early...less than stellar performances. "See you later! Hope the rest of the sale goes smoothly!" Turning with a little spring in her step, Starlight would begin her way back down towards Ponyville, only to stop part way down the line with a little wave! "Well hello there, Silverstream. Come to get some apples, or just visiting?"
  6. "Hey there, Applejack! Seems like your sale's a hit huh?" Starlight said with a smile as she trotted her way up. It was plain to see the dents in the grass where bushels upon bushels had sat before. That was to be expected, Sweet Apple Acres always had the best of the best when it came to the fruit, and they always sold well, but this little booth of Applejack's took the cake! "Can't say what I was expecting, but it certainly wasn't a kissing booth." the mare giggled softly and glanced over at where the bushels sat then over towards their stack of lock boxes with an impressed whistle. "Glad to see it's working out so well though! Well if it's alright then I'd like to get a couple bushels myself. One of Cosmic Crisp and one of Grenadier if you have them." the unicorn had done a bit of reading on fruit cultivars recently, surprisingly fascinating stuff! Starlight would smile as she dug out the bits for the baskets. "I'm guessing this whole thing has felt like it's been going on for months huh?" she'd say with a laugh, laying the bits on the table. "It does seem a bit out of your usual comfort zone, but I guess that's what makes it so nice to see. Think you'll be doing this sort of sale again sometime? I'm sure it'll do just as well."
  7. Phew! That took care of most all of today's errands! Starlight Glimmer wiped a bit of sweat away from her brow as she trotted along. The mare had been out and about for what felt like the greater majority of the day. She had books to take to Twilight, a dress to try on for Rarity, and not to mention she was planning on visiting Bevel later that day! She really did have her hooves full! That didn't mean however she hadn't the time nor inkling to stop by and visit Applejack when she had seen that the mare was having a special sale on their apples. There was never any question on the freshness or quality from their farm, plus she had been meaning to get a couple of bushels just the other day but hadn't the time to swing by! But with a break in today's busy schedule, how could she not? Though the mare hadn't been expecting a line. Starlight whistled to herself in surprise. It wasn't every day that Sweet Apple Acres had a line of all things. She giggled to herself quietly and shrugged as she took her place in line. Good thing she was free, this could be a little bit of a wait.
  8. Ahh! This was it! A wonderful start to a wonderful school year. Students seemed to be in high spirits already, and seemed to be rather accepting of their new Headmare. Starlight Glimmer herself was feeling pretty good herself as she made her way off to the councilor's office. Apparently there had been a rumour around that she herself was going to be the Headmare...truth be told she wouldn't have said no if asked...but she was sure Twilight had her reasons. Whatever the case may be, the unicorn was all too happy to continue helping as the academy's councilor. To that effect she had made sure to decorate her office accordingly! Changed out the curtains to make the place feel fresh so to speak. Around the room she had various gifts and knickknacks that her friends or students had given her, as well as a couple of her favourite kits hanging from the ceiling to give it a little extra personal flair. With a mug full of apple tea — thanks Applejack — Starlight would open up her door and take a seat. She was fairly confident there wouldn't be any issues that she'd be needed for, it was the first day of school after all, but a good councilor always has their door open for a student in need, no matter how small the worry.
  9. Starlight had to admit, this was a strange and bittersweet turn of events. In the brief beginning moments, the mare could hardly believe that Twilight had intended to step down as Headmare, it seemed so out of character for her. But, with the added responsibility placed at her hooves by Celestia and Luna, she could hardly blame her for wanting to not drown herself in responsibility...for once. The question that lingered for Starlight after that had been who exactly would be able to fill her horseshoes! The obvious choice would have been one of the girls, of course, but sometimes the obvious choice isn't the correct choice. The unicorn didn't know Bluebl...er...belle, very well at all. Like most she had heard the rumours good and bad, Starlight was hardly a stranger to that sort of thing herself. Quietly she sat off and to the back, smiling politely as Twilight went through her speech, she could only imagine the nervousness that was coursing through the princess as she continued. Starlight made a mental note to take her out later, getting something to eat was always a good way to de-stress. When the princess' speech landed upon her continuing role at the school, she would stand and wave at the students before taking her seat once more. Starlight knew which part was coming next and quietly held her breath as she waited the reaction of the students. The expected gasps slowly settled down into a quiet murmur before turning into silence again as Twilight continued. It was hard not to tear up a bit herself, seeing Twilight nearly doing so. As she passed by, Starlight wouldn't hesitate to give her friend and mentor a gentle hug before letting her go with a smile. And as Twilight passed, so did Bluebelle, a picture of poise and grace belaying the swirling vortex of self doubt that was probably just under the surface. Starlight remained quiet, listening intently to the princess' speech. She had heard Twilight practicing hers more than a few times over the course of...well honestly she had lost track of time on that but let's say she heard it more than once. But Bluebelle's was new to hear, and would serve well to gauge the kind of pony she would be working for here on. And from the sound of it, it was a wise choice on Twilight's part. As Bluebelle's speech came to an end, a silence fell over the crowd once again, as the students looked to one another. Change was hard for anyone, especially the youth, she knew that far too well. But she also knew too well how the approval of your peers could affect you, and so before the silence could turn awkward, Starlight would be the first to applaud the new headmare.
  10. Chuckling softly, Àilóng would raise up to his hooves. He wasn't terribly surprised that his little comment either went over Yuè's head or was simply brushed off as worded wrong. Whatever the case may be, the disguised dragon was pleased with his friend's choice of their next activity. Truth be told, this was the one he had been looking forward too all night, but he had been so enraptured by the Empress' company that the passing of the time had all but been a blur. With an offered hoof and a smile, Àilóng would seek to help the mare up to hers. "Well, we better not waste time then! If we help one another I'm sure we can have them built and ready to fly before it's too late. Perhaps we can make one together as well?" smile growing into a kind grin, the glamoured king would lead Yuè towards the tables.
  11. Think whoever accepted forgot to stamp this, so I'll go ahead and do so
  12. 'Alright...' Spike thought to himself. Big Mac's arrival changed things up a bit for the worry ridden dragon. 'If Big Mac can handle dressing up all girly like. So can I! He's the manliest stallion I know! Maybe Valen's right, if I just stop caring so much, it'll be fine...yeah.' Tonight would be a lot more fun if he wasn't so worried. Besides, he had to look at the bright side for this! At least the outfit was super comfy and it didn't clash with his scales and it fit like a dream, what could he really complain about? He could worry about fixing the mess that caused this later. For tonight there were treats and snacks to be had! And speaking of treats, Berry Punch had just begun the demonstration of her latest invention. Spike hadn't really pegged the mare for a candy maker, but with as much wine and juice she made, he wasn't terribly surprised that she'd take a little foray into the wide world of sweet treats. It was some mix of a juice box and a gooey candy...Which frankly was brilliant! Sure the gummies that had the liquid center was great, but having a straight from the tap source of that goo? That was awesome! "Wow Berry, those are really cool. I bet you could make loads off them!" he said once she had finished her demonstration and deposited one in his trick or treat bag. Having a snack in a juice box like that was brilliant for kids and ponies with a sweet tooth on the go...What next? Yoghurt in a tube? Alright! First trick or treat stop successful. Sure it wasn't the biggest haul from a house, but hey! A start's a start and Spike even managed to resist going ahead and devouring this one. Chomp went the last bite of that delicious candy apple. Man Nightmare Night was the best. When else could someone pig out on candy? Any other time of year, everyone would be all 'Noooo, too much sugar! Don't, think of the cavities!' and things like that. Meandering over to Big Mac's side, Spike idly chewed on the candy apple's stick with a smile. "Awesome costume Big Mac, did you make it yourself?" Spike asked the stallion before giving a little tug to the chest of his own. "I think you were super distracted at least week's OnO game. You remember that weird idol? I grabbed it and it did this. But apparently... he glanced over at Discord. "Because I left the game early it's stuck on me outside of the game now." sighing, Spike rolled the stick from one side to the other. "But hey! It looks good, right?
  13. Hawke had to admit that the ranch pretty impressive. She couldn't think of a time she had seen more tomato plants all in one place. When ponies cultivated, that didn't do it half way that's for sure. Applejack's and Boulder's places were sure signs of that. Boulder's little brother, who if the griffon recalled right from the finish line was named Rocky, was the quickest on the draw to greet Hawke. Yup, just as much southern hospitality and pride as his older brother. The griffoness smiled in kind and gave Rocky a wink. "Well thank you, handsome, I bet I will if everything tastes as good as it smells!" The race had really worked up an appetite, which could make most anything smell good to be honest, but it wasn't an exaggeration to say the food smelt heavenly. She could hardly wait to dig in! Before she could do that though, the ever pretty pink party pony had slipped out from wherever she was hiding and slid up next to her. Hawke purred a let her tail wrap around one of Pinkie's hind legs as she gave her a hug. "Well with you here, how could I miss it? Plus, smell all that food! If I'm not careful I may end up loosing my racing figure!" she chuckled and gave her stomach a pat. Just from smell alone she felt like she was going to pack on a few pounds. It'd be extra laps tomorrow that was for sure!
  14. Spike squinted at Valen's suggestion. That was...a terrible name. Plus it was way to close to Gilda and if she ever got wind this A: he'd never live it down for sure and B: she'd probably be angry that something so girly was almost sort of associated with her name. The dragon opened his mouth to say as much but just sighed and shook his head "I'm sure I'll think of...something." he hoped. Something better than that at least. Since the outfit reminded him of something out of Neighponese manga...maybe he could come up with something based on that?...It'd help if he had read more though, ugh. He'd have to come up with some sort of name for it eventually though. And while Spike was pondering this, it left him unaware of the whispered conversation between Valen and Discord. Baaah, the name could wait. Back to the candy matters at hand Collecting your body weight in candy wasn't an easy task in the slightest, especially since some houses would probably run out of candy long before the night was over. The ever growing group would be hard pressed to collect half their individual body weights! And if more ponies ended up joining, maybe not even a quarter. Still though, Spike was willing to try. And...The dragon eyed the floating candy apple before taking it in a paw...a little energy boost to get him through the long night wouldn't hurt, right? CHOMP! Oooh that was good! Oh yeah, he'd be coming back by here for sure. "Yeah! Once we get more candy, I'll at least come back for something. We've gotta save up a bunch for this legend Discord heard about." he replied to Cain's offer before taking another chomp of the apple. Speaking of tasty treats, it sounded like Berry Punch had some candy up for offer as well! It seemed like Wind Walker had the same idea as the dragon, no time like the present to get started! After all, these bags didn't fill themselves...did they? Spike peeked inside the bag...Yep. Still empty. Not one to be left behind on treats, Spike was quickly over and waved in greeting to the mare. "Happy Nightmare Night, Berry! Really nice costume you've got." they said, completely not realizing the similarities between their outfits at all. While Spike held out the lovingly crafted treat sack, a familiar 'Howdy!' hit Spike's ears. Glancing back over his shoulder, Spike waved to the stallion who...Wow he really went all out on his costume this year! Was he taking lessons from Masquerade? It was top notch! "Hey Big Mac! Glad you could make it out tonight!" It had been a few days since the dragon saw Mac...Not since the...last...session. The realization returned and smacked Spike in the face that Mac hadn't seen him since the OnO session that he got cursed! Did he know he got cursed? He was pretty busy in that game...Okay. Relax Spike, breathe. He was in something girly too! That made it better, it looked good on him, so maybe what Spike was wearing actually did look good on him to. Did Discord plan this? Not the whole curse thing, but the group meeting up? He glanced over at Discord somewhat suspiciously. Spike wouldn't put it past the draconequus to do something that would simultaneously embarrass and help him out at the same time...
  15. With a half gagged 'ack!', Spike was pulled into an 'encouraging' hold by Valen. It was a nice sentiment and all, and it wasn't like the colt was wrong, if anything Spike knew deep down he was right, if it wasn't for one teensy fact. "Maybe they'll forget about it for tonight, but this thing has been stuck on me for a week already!" he gave the chest of the dress a little tug, it snapping back into place. It was easy for Valen to do, he was used to this sissy frufru stuff, but not Spike! The only thing that got him into things like this was if he was helping Rarity! And even then he wasn't the biggest fan...but aaah Rarity~ "I'll try...no promises. Turning to Yama the little dragon chuckled and sighed. "Wouldn't be much of a curse if I could just give it to you, but believe you me, I would if I could." Not long after Discord's explanation of tonight's plan, a voice cut the stillness that followed. A very, very loud voice. And that loud yell sounded familiar...Oh no...Was that? Oh no it was. Wind Walker was here. Again this wasn't a case of displeasure at the filly's arrival. No, this was Spike's shame and panic riddled brain running through the absolute worst case scenario of her showing up. Wind Walker was friends with the Crusaders. The Crusaders had connections with the school's newspaper. This greatly increased the chances that Spike could end up in the newspaper like this!! He internally screamed and the urge to just hide in the still girly but not nearly as horrible burlap sack was rising with every passing moment...And now his ears were ringing too! Guh! "Hey...Wind Walker. Happy Nightmare Night to you too. Nice costume!" here was hoping she'd not keep up the Royal Canterlot Voice all night. There'd be way to much attention drawn their way and that's the LAST thing that Spike needed for his mental health... "So Discord, exactly how many treats are we supposed to gather up for this 'Ghoul' anyway?" it stood to reason that if you got more than your weight in candy for trick or treating, turning it in just to get a statue the size of you made out of chocolate, you'd be downgrading...unless it was just really, really good chocolate. Which would make sense if it was so legendary!...And if it existed at all. Another yell broke through the conversation once again. Thankfully this one wasn't right in his ears like Wind's conversation with Valen, yeesh. What did tinnitus feel like? Discord had the right idea, a candy booth seemed like a great start! Spike followed along with the group over. A cute stallion that Spike couldn't recall seeing before had set up quite the cart with all kinds of tasty treats if the smell in the air was anything to go by. Before anypony else could really say anything, Wind Walker asked what was obviously on everpony's mind. Just what sorts of delectable snacks did the stallion have? While they had made their way over to the cart, it seemed another filly had found the ruckus and a desire to join in. Just how many more strangers were going to end up seeing Spike like this?! At least Rainbow Dash or Pinkie Pie weren't around to see this, he'd never hear the end of it! "Eheh, sure! The more the merrier! I'm Spike, what's your name?" it's not like Spike would say no, that would be rude! Even if he did look ridiculous, he couldn't just shoo anyone away. Still...tonight was only going to get more stressful.
