  1. "Um, Keepsake," her editor, Red Ink, said over the phone, "you can't be serious." "What do you mean?" Keepsake responded as she trotted into the kitchen, using her horn's magic to pull the old phone along behind her. She hummed to herself as she opened the fridge and began floating out the makings for not one, but several sandwhiches. "The Everfree Forest? By yourself?" Red Ink said irritably, seeming to sense that Keepsake was hardly paying attention to her. "I'm not going adventuring too deep, and besides, I heard there's even a pony living out there! I'll be fine!" Of this Keepsake was certain. Her move to Ponyville had been about much more than just researching for her newest book - it was her first time getting to live all alone, and she felt so independent! (Not to mention the other perks, like peace and quiet, privacy, and final say in all the decorations.) She was still riding the high of her newfound rule over this tiny domain, and nopony was going to take that away from her! "Keepsake, didn't you say you wanted to get to know Everfree from the point of view of the locals?" Keepsake stopped mid-wrap of her newest sandwhich. The magic fizzled out around it, like soda flattening."Well, yes..." She said reluctantly. She hated when Red Ink made sense. "Then wouldn't it make sense to find a guide? Somepony local who could show you?" "Well... yes." Keepsake admitted finally. She was becoming thoughtful. "Somepony who's been there before. Somepony with stories." "Exactly!" Red Ink agreed eagerly. She sounded relieved. * That evening, Keepsake fretted over the first draft of her ad. "I hope it'll be okay..." she murmured, worrying the flyer with her hoof. In bold black ink it read: "HELP WANTED! Guide through the Everfree Forest. My name is Keepsake, and I'm new here in Ponyville. I moved here to work on my newest novel inspired by tales from the Everfree Forest. I'd love to see it upclose, and get an idea of what it's like living around such strange magic! Experience in wilderness safely, and juicy stories about Everfree, preferred. Interested ponies can mail to..." Well, what more could she say? With that, she dipped her quill back into it's ink vile and scratched out her address. She aimed her horn at the flyer and, with a sparkler-like explosion, it became a stack. She carried it to her window and one by one, began to send the flyers with her magic. Keepsake watched fireflies dance between the floating pages as they sailed away, influenced to pin themselves to storefronts and notice boards across Ponyville, and smiled as she watched them. There was a softness in her chest that night, as they receeded, that told her no matter what, good things were going to happen here.
  2. Hello! I'm Jenny, I'm new to the RP community/haven't properly RPed in several years, and I was hoping I could reach out here for anyone who might be interested in planning an RP with me to get back into things I'm a creative writing major and a passionate writer in general, but I'm also looking for a place to write that's just for me and any friends I may make to enjoy ourselves, without all of the pressure I usually put on my writing. That being said, if you're looking for something fun, off the cuff, and easygoing, let's get to planning! I'm hoping to use my approved OC Keepsake and I'd love an RP that explores at least a little of the Everfree forest, but that's all I have in mind so far. Feel free to jump in on this thread with any ideas you may have floating around or want to try out. I'm open to most anything 😊
  3. Roleplay Type: WoEName: KeepsakeGender: FemaleAge: Young mareSpecies: UnicornEye colour: Light brown/green.Coat: A medium pastel green (reference #C1E1C1)Mane/Tail: Straw yellow. She likes to keep it short but it still has a tendency to bounce and hang in her face as it has a natural curl, sort of like one big cowlick. She acts like her hair is a chore, but deep down she's fond of it. Physique: Keepsake is short and fairly unassuming in build. She has a light smattering of freckles over her checks.Residence: Keepsake has just moved to Ponyville into a small cottage on the edge of the Everfree Forest. She's hoping to use it as the inspiration for her newest book!Occupation: Keepsake is a beloved author for young fillies and colts. She's known for focusing on difficult to explain emotions in her work, using her own memories of her foalhood as inspiration for her heartfelt, hopeful stories about young ponies growing up and coming to terms with the world. Cutie Mark: Keepsake's cutie mark is an open book with three tiny flowers pressed on the right page. It's meant to symbolize Keepsake's innate talent for writing, and her realization that the past is what helps us to learn and grow: a sentiment she hopes to share by writing about ponies who have done bad things or recovered from difficult situations. Unique Traits: Keepsake has a bad habit of focusing too much on the past. But because of this, she has an excellent memory! She can recall anything from her education as a filly to the color of the plates her neighbor lent her as a foal. Her memory comes in handy often and has saved her from many a sticky situation, as she tends to be quite disorganized otherwise. History: Keepsake was born into an already crowded family that lives on the outskirts of Canterlot. The second-youngest of eight siblings, Keepsake often felt lonely and invisible in her formative years. She tried her best to be patient and understanding towards her family, as they had little money and her mother and father worked hard to support them. As a filly she found comfort in her after-school reading club, and the support and encouragement of her teacher Ms. Bright Berry. Ms. Bright Berry would be there to support Keepsake through some of her hardest moments throughout the years, including a runaway attempt after her mother forgot to pick her up one day after school! That day, Ms. Bright Berry had been so helpful. She had given Keepsake the courage to return home and even began walking her home from school. She explained to her that being lonely now didn't mean she would have to be lonely forever, and that there were a lot of ponies out there that would love to hear her voice one day. When Keepsake imagined herself succeeding and sharing her voice with the world the that way Ms. Bright Berry believed she could, her cutie mark appeared. Keepsake vowed that she would grow up to share her voice as Ms. Bright Berry had promised: and she would make sure that included the hard parts AND the good ones, like the unexpected kindness from ponies like her. Character Personality: Keepsake is a daydreamer known for being unorganized and even a bit klutzy. Around ponies her age she tends to be nervous and soft-spoken, but a very warm and elegant side of her is brought out around foals. She's always delighted to meet fans of her work, though she's not recognized often, and wants to be the best example she can be for the growing ponies she writes for. Sometimes she feels like she's still figuring it all out herself, but if past experience tells her anything (and Keepsake relies HEAVILY on past experiences!), then one day, everything will turn out fine. Character Summary: Keepsake doesn't know it yet, but she has some more lessons to learn about being present in the moment and with others. A daydream-y foal's author by trade, Keepsake is a passionate if clumsy pony who just wants to do the best she can.

    Hi and thank you so much! That makes total sense to me, I like to describe ADHD as a magnified version of natural tendencies we all have in some form so I totally relate! Especially to it being hard to focus on work when there's something more fun to be had. Maybe that's the Pinkie fan in me talking haha! Thank you again for your welcome.

    Thank you so much for the warm welcome! I really love writing fiction with a dash of magical realism, like a vague fantasy feel. 😄 I love Rainbow, too!! We wouldn't have the mane six without her after all! I'd love to roleplay sometime with you! I'm still learning how to get started on this site, but I think I'll have a character application up soon!

    Nice to meet you all! I'm Jenny. I have ADHD and MLP has been an on-and-off hyperfixation of mine for years. I'm trying to give myself some more fun hobbies and I thought I might like roleplaying because I've always loved to write fiction and poetry. And that's how I find myself posting here today! I took to google for MLP forums. I tend to be a bit shy, but I'll try to put my friendliest foot (hoof?!) forward here. :) I also keep referring back to this introduction guide, heheh-- finally, I think my favorite pone has got to be Pinkie Pie. I think her sweetness and optimism are comforting! Please feel free to say hi! Thank you!
