  1. So, has anybody gotten any word from MrCry on this? It's been a while, and I'd hate to see people lose interest because it sat for too long.
  2. Adventivia was beside herself, figuratively speaking, out of confusion of what her next move should be and because her soul might as well have jumped from her body as soon as the Unicorn began screeching. She could hardly believe it. He'd seen her sneak attack coming a mile away! And what exactly did he mean when he said he could see all of her? Like, he could see through the ground? Those questions, however, were as likely to get asked as Adventivia's chance of winning this fight. "Just what kind of villain is he?" She hadn't even managed to grab hold of him while he was right in front of her! To make matters worse, there was far from enough energy for her to absorb from other sources to even the playing field. 'Sometimes it is wiser to run than to fight, but always remain calm, not just for yourself, but for those around you as well.' a teacher's lesson echoed in her head, unfortunately drowned out by her fear. She...........she didn't have a choice! She had to run! She looked around frantically, but where could she go?! He was so fast, no matter where she went he'd catch her! She fell to the ground, covering her face in hopelessness. There wasn't anything she could do, but she had to get away from this.........this '......monster......' Was he like she'd been? Surely she couldn't have been the first, or the last, who misunderstood the difference between good and evil when they first started out. Could she even talk any sense into someone that looked like......that? She certainly wouldn't have when she was in a rage, but this seemed like her only hope right now. Still cowering, she began to speak. "Wh-why do you have to be evil?" She cried, "You don't have to be evil! I used to be bad too! Ma-maybe we're not so different! You can be good too! It's not as hard as it seems! We can be good together! W-w-w-we....." She began to babble. She had nothing left.
  3. Well, anyway, if we're saying what elements we'd like our characters to be I'd like Laughter, if nobody minds.
  4. Yooooo! Don't forget about me! So, 1 unicorn/ nerd pony 2 earth/ mud pony 1 crystal/ beautiful pony 1/ Griffon/rude bird Plus whatever MrCry's character is going to be. Has anyone heard from him yet?
  5. Well, I thought about playing a Male Earth Pony that's really clumsy and inadvertently makes everypony else laugh when he falls, but it's okay because he laughs at himself too. Thing is, I haven't thought about it much more than that. 'Course, I did only come up with this idea an hour or two ago during work, so I'll have to wait until I'm off for the day to finish it.
  6. This was it. Adventivia's first real battle since her time at the academy. She still wasn't sure if she was ready, but she could tell that she'd grown since her first day, else she wouldn't still be holding her ground. Even as she looked into the fiery eyes of her opponent, she could feel something creeping up on her: fear. It made her quiver. She could tell just by the way he was standing that he was ready to end her. It carried the same weight the instructors at the academy had, but this was no class. Taking a deep breath, she reflected on what she'd learned. Particularly, she reflected on what it meant to be brave, reminding herself 'Bravery is not the absence of fear, but acting in spite of that fear.' She calmed her quivering as best she could and began trying to think about how she could win as quickly, and safely, as possible. 'I could always drain him,' she thought, 'but can I even get close enough to grab him?' She knew she didn't have much time, and that making the first strike was usually the best move to make. She had to think fast! Then, it came to her. She remembered that not all fighting had to be direct. She had to think of a way to distract this pony, quickly, but how? "So, I just have to ask, what's up with the fiery green eyes?" She managed to get out, standing back up like nothing had just happened. "Like, doesn't that hurt? How'd that even happen anyway? Is that some kind of secret Unicorn spell? I think I remember learning that Changelings use green fire magic. Are you a Changeling?" Adventivia hoped she was being convincing, especially since she didn't handle pressure well, and boy was there pressure! If she had the ability to sweat, she'd be able to fill a bathtub with the stuff! While trying to make idle conversation a stall any actual fighting, Adventivia was testing the ground beneath her hooves with a couple vines, and was pleasantly surprised to find that the soil beneath her was very soft. Slowly and carefully, she began wriggling her vines beneath the dirt towards Squall, hoping that the fog would hide both the shifting dirt and her slowly diminishing mass. At the very least if he did decide to charge her right now she could still entangle him with the vines when he reached however far they'd gone. It seemed like a win-win situation. 'At least that innocent filly's getting away.'
  7. Adventivia watched as the pony's eyes lit up, eyeing her intently. It kinda freaked her out, especially because they were on fire, but more importantly it told her that this wasn't a normal pony. Or, at least, she hadn't come across any other ponies whose eyes turned green. As his eyes lost their green flame, he told her she didn't know what she was getting into, and demanded that she move. 'What does he mean I don't know what I'm getting into?' She pondered, 'Isn't it just a game of tag?' However, she wouldn't have long to ponder before the filly that had hidden behind her began to run, causing the swordpony to shout "No!" and jump over Adventivia, sword at the ready. The way he held his sword with his magic caused memories to hit her. She remembered the swordpony that had first cut her down, and how his stance had been roughly the same, ready to strike. She knew what he was about to do. "Whoa!" She yelled, snapping into action at the memory. Leaping straight into the air, Adventivia tackled Squall, sending them both to the ground with a thud. Getting up a little dizzy from the fall, Adventivia took a step back steadying herself and exclaimed "That's not tag! You were about to hurt her!" She stamped her hoof on the ground angrily, finally having regained her balance. "Heroes don't hurt innocent ponies." Lowering herself for combat with a scowl on her face, she added "And if you aren't a hero, I guess that makes you a villain!" She waited for the swordpony to ready himself. She'd learned it the academy it was the 'honorable' thing to do. It all added up for Adventivia, and she was ready.
  8. Adventivia kept 'seeking' through the fog for a while, until she felt something run into her. She had barely seen it coming, and apparently the filly that had run into her didn't see her either. She listened to the filly's plea before she ran behind her, and before Adventivia had a moment to react or say anything another pony came running through the fog. This one was a stallion, and pointed a sword at the filly, saying "Get away from it." Adventivia took offense to this, believing he was talking to the filly. "Excuse me," she said, a little irritated, "but I'm not an 'it'. My name's Adventivia, and I'm a hero. Well, in training anyway." mumbling the last part. She revealed her Sunlight Medallion from within her vines, hoping to prove that she wasn't evil. Though, now that she thought about it........she supposed nopony here was playing hide-and-go-seek, huh? And what was it that filly said about this pony being after her? 'Oh!' she thought, 'They must be playing 'tag' instead!' With a smile, she said to the adult "I'm sorry for interrupting your game of 'tag'. I got a little lost and was wondering if you could show me where we are on the map. Maybe even point me in the right direction? It'd be a big help..........." She paused, a blank looking coming over her face. She thought again, 'Wait.......who plays tag with a sword?' It was starting to click for Adventivia, but she still knew so little of pony culture. Maybe it was how they played here? "Why are you chasing this filly with that sword?" She asked quizzically.
  9. I mean, it looked a little dead when I found it, just a feeeeww months old. I was hoping it wasn't too dead, 'cause it really sounds fun!
  10. Well, that makes 3 out of 6 I suppose
  11. This was it. Fizzle was trapped, with no way out. Could he bring himself to actually hurt this colt? He didn't want to get hurt himself, but he supposed if he really had to..... He closed his eyes and was prepared to unleash his magic when he heard a gruff voice yelling at them, telling them to get out of their yard. He opened his eyes and saw his pursuer running, and was about to run himself before he was trapped yet again. He knew he couldn't fight an adult and get away with it, but to his relief it turned out to be somepony completely different! "That's, well, amazing!" Fizzle exclaimed. He'd been slightly worried before, but now that he knew he wasn't trespassing he certainly felt better. Much better, in fact, at the prospect of new magic. "What kind of spell is that? Could you teach it to me? Just how hard is it?" Then, he realized he had a much more important question that needed to be answered. "Oh, what is your name, anyway? Mine's Fizzle. Fizzle Spark!"
  12. Adventivia had decided to backpack across Equestria during summer break at Sunlight Academy as part of an extended study. She wanted to learn more about the cultural differences and social norms that dotted the landscape, about why ponies from one place had different accents than ponies from a different place, and most of all she wanted to get a better understanding of morality, and what was generally considered moral and immoral. She made sure to carry her Sunlight Medallion with her, as a way of proving she wasn't a roaming monster and was actually a student at the academy. So far, without fail, at every town she had visited somepony had run away screaming in terror, prompting nearby heroes to come and try fighting her while she tried her hardest to convince them she meant no harm. Every. Time. But, she held onto hope as she traced out her route on her map. It looked like her next stop was going to be Marelia. Or, was it Roam? 'Uh oh,' she thought, 'am I lost?' She stared at the map, turning it one way and another, trying to get her bearings straight. After struggling for far too long, she got an idea. 'It should still be morning, so all I have to do is look at the sun and I'll know which way I'm going!' She was very proud of herself for thinking about this, but when she looked up from her map to look at the sun she found herself surrounded by a thick fog that blotted out the sun. "Great," she muttered to herself, "now I really am lost." She pressed forward through the fog, still unsure about just where she was headed, until she started to see the outlines of buildings, and where there were buildings there were sure to be ponies that could let her know where she was! "Hello? Anypony there?" She called, listening for some kind of response. But, what she heard wasn't an answer, just giggling. "Who's there?" She asked, to no avail. She'd come across children that laughed just like this when they were playing, so she assumed they must be playing a game too. She seemed to recall one group she'd met that played 'Hide-and-go-Seek", in which one pony had to find the others that were hiding. "Are you playing 'Hide-and-go-Seek'?" She inquired, and again heard only giggling. Believing that to be a yes, Adventivia pressed on into the fog, following the laughter, stating the same line the 'Seeker' was supposed to say. "Ready or not, here I come!"
  13. Adventivia's journey to Canterlot from Trottingham hadn't been an easy one. It had been hard enough for her to slip out of the city while it was on alert, but the journey was a whole new challenge entirely. She first tried using back roads, knowing that the main roads would be too dangerous for her, but even the back roads seemed to be too much. The first ponies she encountered that way turned and ran away screaming, forcing her to travel along the countryside. She didn't mind too much though. It was nice to enjoy the nature and see the changing scenery. Though it was a long journey, she had been making steady progress, preferring to travel at night to avoid as many ponies as possible. However, the closer Adventivia got to Canterlot, the more and more ponies there seemed to be everywhere, even during the night. It also began to dawn on her that if she couldn't walk around freely out here, how was she supposed to get into the city, and more so to the academy? But, she had a plan. Stopping off at a clothesline in the dead of night, she took the liberty of borrowing a rain cloak. It wasn't much, and it probably seemed out of place, but it hid her body well. She only hoped that the pony she took it from wouldn't miss it too much. With this on, she could travel down the main roads relatively easily, as long as she made sure to keep her face hidden. A few days later and she was in the gilded city. She awed at the massive buildings and bustling ponies that at one time would've only existed in her dreams. Careful to not draw attention to herself, she made her way to the academy. As she approached the school, she noticed many other unusual ponies, and a multitude of other creatures, all gathered in front of a stage. Even in her raincoat, Adventivia didn't feel out of place among the crowd. She only hoped that no one here had been among those at Trottingham. There were many speakers up on stage. The first was a beautiful pony that had both wings and a horn, which was strange to Adventivia because she'd only seen ponies with a wing or a horn, and some without either at all. It was hard for Adventivia to hear her over the crowd, but based on the reactions of those up front her speech was inspiring, before she took off anyway. Next up was a pony covered head to toe in some kind of suit. He introduced himself as Machina, and seemed to be no-nonsense, and made sure to mention the golems guarding the place, saying how they would attack anything that threatened the school. It made Adventivia nervous, keeping an eye on the nearest golem. She figured since it hadn't done anything yet that she was safe. It reassured her, in a way. Just as the suited pony had finished, there was a sudden sound over the intercom. It was....music? Then, seemingly out of nowhere, dozens of costumed pink ponies appeared in the crowd and began dancing. It made Adventivia jump when it all started, but when she saw that everyone else was enjoying it she calmed down. Was this normal for ponies around here? One of the ponies got up on stage and the others began to disappear. She introduced herself as Flash Mob, and made sure to let everyone know to come to her with any problems. Adventivia wondered if she could count herself among them. Once the pink pony fainted, another speaker stepped up to take her place. This one was a Pegasus, one that seemed to change colors often. She introduced herself as the Rainboom Centurian, and she seemed very enthusiastic, especially when it came to training. When her mane flared up, it frightened Adventivia, even at that distance. She made sure to make a mental note to never make that pony angry. After the Pegasus came another pony with wings and a horn. What she said resonated the most with Adventivia. She introduced herself as the Moonlit Knight, and admitted to the crowd that she had done wrong, and moreover done great harm to them and innocent ponies. She reminded Adventivia of herself, and what she, or rather her clones, had done in Trottingham. She hoped one day she'd be able to make amends for what she'd done too, and be accepted by everyone. There was one more speaker, a dog. He introduced himself Shui Seng, the academy's combat instructor. He seemed like a very wise dog, whose words made Adventivia listen closely, even though not much was said. Beyond that, a few shenanigans happened on stage before Flash Mob resurrected and Rainboom Centurian telling everyone to head to the front doors of the academy, where there were more Flash Mobs. With one last glance at the golems guarding the academy, Adventivia moved towards the front door, accidentally getting mingled with the large crowd. She listened to the Flash Mobs talk about how the doors will zap people that aren't good, though she didn't know what they were talking about a "character sheet". Either way, she figured it'd be best not to touch it. She walked down the line of Flash Mobs, but since she only needed water and sunlight she didn't partake in any of the snacks or drink. The main room was huge! So big, that Adventivia had to tilt her head far back to see the ceiling! She was so in awe, the hood of her coat fell off without her noticing, revealing her body and mane of vines. With luck, she wouldn't stand out too much in a crowd of misfits.
  14. Fizzle froze. He hadn't been prepared for his spell to make him even angrier, let alone him turning his anger on Fizzle. What should he do? Any one of his spells could seriously hurt if he hit the pony directly. Panicking, her ran around the corner of the nearest building, spraying down more ice behind him as he did. Once around the corner, he frantically started looking around for others and calling for help. He was afraid. If no one came, if no one heard him, he'd have to defend himself. He didn't want to hurt anypony, but if it came down to it, he knew he'd have to. He prepared lightning magic in each hand. If he had to fight, the least he could do would be to try and incapacitate him. Turning to face the corner he came from, Fizzle readied himself to confront the bully.
