  1. While this had not been the first Grand Galloping Gala since the return of Princess Luna, or even since the ascendancies of Cadence and Twilight Sparkle, this was the first year that the organizers decided to truly emphasize all members of the Equestrian Crown, right down to the lighting and decorations. The great vaulted roof of the Grand Ballroom was lit like an artificial sky, with artistic renditions of the movements of the heavenly bodies across it. The Sun and Moon were depicted as arcs of light from horizon to horizon, flanked by the great candelabra of the Stars. Each arc had its own coloration scheme, with the Sun shining in warm yellow, and the Moon in cool blue. Thus, the great marble dance floor was lit in such a way that it seemed to transition from day to night from one end to the other. The Dance Floor, too, was laid on in tribute to Royalty. This time, it was the more recent Princess of Love that was honored; seen from above, the arrangement of the musician’s stage and tables around the edges would form the shape of the Crystal Heart. The Musician’s stage itself was in tribute to the newly crowned Princess of Magic. There were two colors of wood, with dark inlaid into lighter stains to form the shape of a six-pointed star. All these were subtle touches, ones that would take some effort to realize and appreciate. The high-class guests that still largely made up the bulk of Gala attendance loved that sort of thing. Even the ordinary pony could see at a glance the effort and elegance in the designs, even if they couldn’t detect the exact shape. And there, in the center of it all, was Equestria’s fifth Princess… *** Princess Bluebelle had not been nearly so nervous last year. Of course, last year she had been Prince Blueblood, attending the Grand Galloping Gala in his own Grand fashion. The difference this year was largely accounted for by a magical accident vis a vis Twilight Sparkle, which was simple enough to explain, but the Canterlot rumor mills were still grinding away at what it really all meant for the Prince. Or Princess. Which would he or she prefer? Those sorts of questions could be rather irritating to a pony already in a confusing and disorienting position, as at least one maid in this hall could attest to. There were likely to be a lot of such coming at her over the course of the evening, but the Princess steeled herself. Tonight, she would put those rumors to bed, and make it clear to Canterlot, to the whole of Equestria, who she was going forward… Of course, besides her own personal agenda, there was also her social duty tonight. As the head of the Canterlot nobility, it was her responsibility to be a resplendent hostess, and gender-swap or not, she wasn’t about to shirk it now! She wore a dress designed by the great fashionista Rarity, with whom the Royal had made some efforts in patching things up. It was a dark blue number, flowing like the waves of nighttime seas over her feminine curves, offsetting like jewels her golden mane and alabaster coat. She walked with practiced ease and dignity, looking every bit the natural-born Princess. One last difference from previous Galas, rivaling even Blue’s gender swap for significance, was the fact that she had not come alone. Prince Blueblood had long been regarded as Canterlot’s most eligible bachelor; a title which had ultimately proved to be more of a headache than anything else. So many mares, and the odd stallion, would come up to him at other Galas to try their luck that it had gotten irritating, up to the point where the Prince had made a game of driving them off. Now, instead of resorting subtle or overt rudeness, Princess Bluebelle could simply point out the looming, ravishing amazon of a mare that was her “plus one” tonight. Oh, yes, whether or not this would be her Best Night Ever, it would be a Night No-one could forget…
  2. What must Manehattan have thought when it saw the black-chitin tower of the Changeling exhibition being constructed in the Park? “What in the name of Tartarus is that?” Would likely have come first, closely followed by, “AAAHH! Changelings!” It was Kahz’s mission to change that. Not just figuratively, either; he was here on official assignment from the Hive to act as a kind of ‘cultural ambassador,’ and to overall make ponies less paranoid about his kind in general. After all, ponies and changelings weren’t actually going to kill each other, right? So the rest was just haggling over details like who would actually be in charge. Minor quibbles! And, given that two previous invasions had not resolved the issue, it couldn’t hurt for the Hive to keep its options open, right? That was the argument that he’d given Queen Chrysalis, and surprisingly enough, she agreed, and put him in charge of the whole thing! What was even more surprising, however, was that Princess Celestia had given her OK to it as well! Apparently, she was orchestrating some sort of program of her own to attract changelings to Equestria, and defect from their own Kingdom. Which would probably mean that this exhibit would not only be a meeting place of pony and changeling, but also of Loyalist and Defector. Kahz held out no hope that this would be any great source of love, but it would certainly be an education for all involved. Also, a barely controlled three-ring circus surrounding a tower that looked like it came out of a bad horror movie, with a short, crooked-spine changeling drone as ringmaster. And what a circus! Kahz was kept busy all throughout set up time, buzzing first to the architects,“Fantastic! The Queen will probably want to move in which she sees this!”, then to the gate-greeters “Lovely smiles! Feel free to flirt all you like, just put on like starving waifs if anypony gets mad. After all, we gotta eat, don’t we?”, and finally to the musicians, “Remember, we can takeany request; heck, we’re probably the best possible cover band in HISTORY. Who else can replicate any musician ever, eh?”, and back again, all the while shouting encouragement and egging them on to further efforts. The Changeling Kingdom didn’t allow much scope for art and creativity, it had to be said, so this was a rare opportunity for his whole crew to go all-out on making the Hive look good! When it came time for the gates to open, Khaz had finally come to a stop, still wired with energy, at the foot of the chitinous construction that the architects had erected around the initial booth allotted them. The guests were here, and soon the show would begin! He couldn’t wait, and what’s more, he was genuinely happy to see them. Kahz didn’t bear anybody ill will, changeling or pony; he just was secure in his loyalties. Maybe he could get them all to understand…
  3. The Crystal Empire’s concept for its World Friendship Exhibition was... simplistically unorthodox to say the least. Rather than going the standard route of showing off the culture of her realm, Princess Cadence proposed to personally give visitors to the Empire’s booth a most unique gift of sorts. It was something he thought of based on her remembrances of the Crystal Heart working its magic whenever powered by the light and love of all the Empire’s citizens. Namely, that any creature within the Heart’s area of influence temporarily gained a crystalline form (complete with a new hair-do in many cases). Of course, bringing the Crystal Heart down to Manehattan was absolutely out of the question. Without it, the Empire would lose all its magical protection. However, one day when Princess Cadence was using free time away from her usual royal duties to read old scrolls from the private Imperial Archive (something her sister-in-law would highly approve of), one document caught the alicorn’s attention. Apparently, one scroll detailed the great accomplishment of a crystal unicorn conjurer during the Pre-Classical Era, who discovered that those ponies filled with immense light and love could use a spell to endow with the same type of magic as that of the Crystal Heart. Essentially, recipients of the conjurer’s “blessing” received the sparkling translucent coats enjoyed by crystal ponies themselves. No crystal pony would then have been surprised to discover that Princess Cadence was more than qualified to wield this wondrous spell. Further research on the alicorn’s part though showed that the spell’s effects on a recipient only lasted for several hours at best. Yet as it just so happened, Cadence discovered the spell right around the time when the Empire’s exhibition for the Friendship Expo was in-progress. Struck with inspiration, the Crystal Princess convinced the rest of her planning committee that giving others the chance to walk as “crystal ponies” was a marvellous idea. After all, not every pony had the opportunity to attend the Crystal Faire to experience the effects of the Crystal Heart’s magic, so why not bring that opportunity to everypony else? For the Expo, Princess Cadence herself would be running the Crystal Empire’s booth, which consisted of not much more than a gem-embroidered tent. The pink alicorn stood outside the tent opening to meet all who wished to get crystalline bodies, while several other crystal ponies prowled the nearby grounds to round up a crowd for their Crystal Princess. To entice crowds even further, Cadence made sure to cast her spell on herself before the Expo opened, ensuring that she too became “crystally” for all others to see. So what are you waiting for? For one day only, BECOME a crystal pony! ​
  4. The world was a large place with many sorts of ponies in it, and many tribes and nations who were not, in fact, ponies at all. Living so far apart as they did, only the most well-traveled had anything more than a vague idea of what they were really like. The problem was that if most living in the world were left strangers to each other, ignorance could breed all sorts of fantastic rumors, and worse! Thus was the World Friendship Exposition founded! Held in Manehattan for its inauguration, the various pavilions and exhibits had taken over the Central Park, spreading all the shining jewels of culture the world had to offer! The great hope was that ordinary ponies could come and see horses, zebras, and even more exotic creatures that previously had just been words associated with map labels, and draw everypony together in a greater global harmony! As Equestria was the leading force and sponsor for this event, of course it too would have an exhibit. And for the great task of organizing and running the exhibit that would bind the event together, and show the best Equestria had to offer to any foreign visitors, Princess Celestia had chosen…. OK, maybe not the best. Still, to be fair to the fellow, he knew perfectly well how most ponies thought of him, and had lately been trying to rehabilitate his reputation, however clumsily. So, his Auntie had decided to give an opportunity to show his sincerity, and test his resolve, by sponsoring and running a major event. It didn’t take longer than five minutes for him to realize just how far out of his depth he was. “Look, I know you have better music to show to the world. Beethooven was from Germaney, for Faust’s Sake!” “Ve can play Beethooven on an oompah band!” Thing was, the Equestrian Exhibit was actually a lot of mini-exhibits, to show off the pluralistic culture within its borders. You could see most of what Equestria was like in the city outside the grounds, but the more far-flung districts, such as Germaney, Prance, and Itaily had their own booths. Well, booths wasn’t quite an accurate way of putting it. The Prance exhibit consisted of a specially-constructed façade of a café, exterior tables for visitors to sit at and sample the culinary greatness the region was known for, and whose smells surrounded the area in a haze of deliciousness. The ‘interior’ of the café had a display of the art of the region, including a section dedicated to the new ‘moving pictures’ industry of Calnais. Young foals could, if they liked, stage and shoot a scene with professional directors and camera ponies standing by. That was all well and good, but right now Blueblood was concerned with the Germain exhibit, which was of… rougher construction. Somepony had the bright idea of trying to replicate the wooded landscape, and so the exhibit was surrounding a gazebo in the midst of a clump of trees. While sight and smell was the sensory key to the Prench exhibit, Germaney was focusing on the touch of cool forest air, and the sound of music. The Prince was a fan of the musical traditions of the place, but not when they pandered to the tastes of the vulgar and stereotyped. Still, he couldn’t very well fit an entire orchestra into a gazebo, so oompah it was. The resonances of tubas opening the 5th Symphony followed the unicorn prince as he trotted out, seeing the weather pegasi finish their last cloud-wrangling, and begin to open the gates. Wait, opening time already? He’d lost track of time! Hurriedly, Blueblood ran to the front of the Grand Pavilion, pausing only to put his mane back into impeccable order and give his white coat a brush-over. There, fit to meet guests! Hopefully, things would go well. He hadn’t time to inspect everything, but surely no disaster would mar this grand exhibition; there wasn’t any place in his schedule for one!
  5. Rainbow Dash stood atop a pedestal, her rainbow mane slicked back, a black cloak clasped around her neck with a fancy broach, flowing behind her constantly on the airless night in a mild breeze she made with her fluttering wings. She wore tall, snug black boots on all four legs, and in one she lifted up a wine glass full of fruit punch. Little fangs peeked out from the edges of her mouth. The perfect, villainous vampony. "What is a pony? A little pile of secrets! What secrets will you uncover in RAINBOW DASH'S OBSTACLE COURSE OF TERROR!? It'll be awesome cause I'm awesome!" "Your first challenge - the Path of Nightmare Moon!" She gestured at the first segment of the course, where the ponies would start of climbing down a fake mountain, a couple of ponies working on tossing foam rocks down - then gathering them up from the bottom and tossing them down again. "First, make your way down the crumbling cliff!" Dash narrated. "Then dodge the horrible manticore!" she gestured at the middle of the path, where a single giant foam manticore tail kept swinging in a circle. Right after that was a big pool of water with platforms across it shaped like the arch of a river serpent's body. "Then make your way across the serpent's crossing! Careful, those platforms might look stable, but they aren't! Are you as awesome as I am to make it across?" The middle of the area had a bunch of tennis balls hanging from it, all painted bright colors with fake wings stuck to them. A few ponies at either side had tennis rackets, and kept batting the tennis balls across the path. "Can you survive the second challenge, the terrible Parasprite Swarm? Or are you not as awesome as me? Nah, nopony's awesome as me! But even if you make it through, comes the most terrifying challenge of all!" Dash gestured at the huge fake cave set up for the last third of the course. "Here, you will find yourself in the Cavern of Secrets! Can you dodge the changelings within and escape? Or will you be joining your previous contestants in the cage within? Ooooooooo!" She wiggled her hooves in a menacing manner.​
  6. OOC- This is a SPONSORED thread. As what happens here is important for the story of Nightmare Night 2013, please roll with the punches as they say. Nightmare Night, what a fright! Give me something sweet to bite. Twilight had been preparing for this night for some time, the last several weeks especially so. Maybe it had been that her time had been taken up so sharply by royal tasks or perhaps it was a sudden influx of holiday spirit, but she had decided some time ago to make Nightmare Night memorable for everypony who came to the Library. Her friends had been similarly transfixed and her royal duties had been honed to a degree of efficiency that before had been thought impossible for somepony so new. This time had went to preparing her library for Nightmare Night, and it had not been an easy task. She had made modifications both subtle and significant from root to branch at her home, though she would have never even dared to skirt her librarian duties, making sure to feed the thirst for knowledge that everypony who visited had as quickly as she could. She had much to do. Finally, on the morning of Nightmare Night, it all came together. The main foyer had little done besides some decorations and treats for visitors. A few blindfolds next to bowls filled with mysterious substances, a common Nightmare Night tradition made slightly scarier as she had spent a fair amount of time creating the substances. It was very important that her visitors had such a wonderful time so she made sure that they had an easy entrance to her little house of horrors for the night. After they had some wonderful punch, they could venture downstairs. Or would, since that was where the next step was. Scary exhibits to frighten the foals and terrify the adults as they were led down into her basement, and in turn they would soon behold the piece de resistance of her whole little show. It would be delicious! She adjusted her little crown, examining herself in the mirror. She looked fantastic. Regal. She couldn't help but stifle a little giggle as she saw herself- could she be any more fetching? Of all the ponies to be, she was Twilight Sparkle- what a joy! She had never really considered how lucky she was, and vowed to redouble her already considerable efforts to prove to her fellows that she was worthy of their trust. Admiration. Of more. As she promised herself that, Twilight levitated her finery off and allowed her well-done Daring Do costume to shine. Maybe she could have done better but she had been busy. Very busy indeed. But tonight, Twilight was going to have fun! Excitement! Nightmare Night for everypony and as a slight smile deviously crawled across her face, the door to the Library was swung open silently, and a sign out front came to life- "Princess Sparkle's Nightmare Night Madhouse!"
  7. Nightmare Night is large event in Ponyville every year. Ponies dress up in costumes, play games, and get scared, all for the fun of it. Almost the entire town participates. Almost... However, in one little cottage on the edge of the town, there are never any lights or decorations on this night. If anypony were to knock, no pony would answer, or would get the door slammed on their nose. Most foals knew to avoid the cottage; they'd get no candy there. But this year, something was different. Lights shown from the windows. The door was open, and the smells of something cooking drifted out. In fact, there was even a pumpkin, seemingly carved with an inexperienced hoof, lit from within with a candle. The most unusual thing, however, was that the cottage's owner was actually sitting outside, a bowl of candy near at hoof. Fluttershy looked a bit uncomfortable in her costume, a cute little white bunny, but the timid pegasus was there, facing her fears. A hoof-lettered sign hung near the carved pumpkin, stating "Nightmare Night Animal Performance Tonight!"
  8. Queen Chrysalis was ecstatic. It was finally time. She had been planning for this day for months and watching it unfold now.she had all confidence that Twilight Sparkle and her accursed friends had gotten the better of her for the last time now. Ponyville would soon be all hers and with it the sweet satisfaction of revenge! She snickered deviously at the delicious thought. There was absolutely nothing that could stop her now. Nightmare Night. The pony's cute little day of safe scares. For all intents it was a day for children, wrapped though it were in the frightful and fearsome. It was a day where ponies let their guard down because they wanted to be scared. They wanted to experience something more than the miserable tedium of their usual day to day. That is what made it absolutely perfect! Ponies wanted to experience fright this day, so why not give it to them? Why not give the ponies of this town the sort of Nightmare Night they'd never forget? "Come minions, the time is now!" Chrysalis shouted out into the night. "Twilight and her loathsome little friends have been captured. The six we've put in their place should be springing their traps shortly and already ensnared much of the town! Spread out now and capture any stragglers you see!" She cackled loudly and then flew up into the air. "Soon, this town and the love of all those in it will be all ours!" The buzz of changeling wings sounded all around her while the screams of terrified ponies became increasingly more frequent. The sound of chaotic noise filling the air all around them brought great joy to the queen. This was the taste of victory! There was none this day who could even hope to challenge her. That said, she was quite curious to see if any of these ridiculous ponies might try!​
  9. *Reminder: Please be sure you've read the event description first! As one of the special staff sponsored event threads, you are allowed only one character in this thread and they shouldn't be in any other sponsored threads!* A single mare stood in the long shadow by Carousel Boutique, looking out over the small makeshift stage that had been set up just outside it and decorated with ominously lit carved pumpkins and fake pony skeletons. She grinned quietly a moment and then threw back her mane, which fluttered back in the early evening breeze. She was ready for a most exciting time. The show she had planned would surely be one Ponyville would not be forgetting anytime soon.She glanced over at the sign just to the side of the stage, which read in glittery letters: "Rarity's Fabulous and Frightful Fashions: Nightmare Night Costume Show and Contest". It was perfect. Ponies young and old would be coming this night to partake in this costume contest, showing off the seasonal wares they had put their all into crafting and she would judge each of them and present ribbons to those that best caught her fashion-savvy eye. She took a moment to glance at the ribbons sitting on her judge's table, to see if all was in order. She had many prepared for the event. They were important. She had special first, second and third place ribbons prepared for the three best costumes, but she had a large number of participation ribbons, so as no one who entered the contest would leave without. It was only fair after all, especially with so many foals likely to drop by. Smirking quietly at the thought, she took a few moments to ensure her own costume was flawless. The golden collar, crown and shoes she had selected matched her white coat perfectly. With a pair of false wings she had to say she looked uncannily like Princess Celestia herself, especially since her mane had been colored especially to match the princess--though of course with the unicorn's usual mane style still. Satisfied with her appearance and satisfied with her preparations she decided it was finally time. She cantered ahead, toward the teeming Nightmare Night crowds to make her announcement. "All right now, my darlings, listen up and gather round! Princess Rarity decrees that it is finally time for this most fabulous costume contest to begin! Anypony and everypony is absolutely free to join in, just come this way!" she shouted out, loudly and playfully ending on an excited giggle. She could hardly wait to see her show become a success. ​
  10. ((This is a sponsered thread and is ran by Canterlot.com Helpstaff. A lovely surprise is in store for those participating in Sponsored Threads, but we ask for this special occasion that a character can be inserted into one Sponsored Thread only, and that you only use one character within a Sponsored Thread.)) She thought it was a good idea. Applejack trotted out of the barn and she pulled out with her a large wagon. She had gotten some suggestions about what sort of activity she could unveil for this year's Nightmare Night festivities. She wanted to lure as many ponies as possible in order to better entertain her guests. And she agreed with her friends that the most important thing the party was needing was a nice relaxing hayride around Ponyville.Tonight, Applejack was wearing sticks, all around her legs, wrapped around her mane and ears, and even placed carefully in her teeth. These sticks together was her costume for the event. She was a timberwolf. After being criticized that Applejack's original plan to be an apple wasn't scary enough according to her friends, she decided to change. That, and someone else she knew was already dressed as an apple. Applejack arrived near Ponyville's center with her well-stacked hay wagon and shouted out to all the ponies around. "Hey you all! Come get a free relaxin' ride around Ponyville! And to all the ponies who ride all the way back to the Sweet Apple Acres barn house, there is a sweet surprise waiting for you!" ​
