  1. Once he got Yù Xīn's approving nuzzle, Kahz began to direct her off the Main Strip out towards the residential district. "Excellent! I happen to know somepony from work who keeps a studio in town; he's brought in to choreograph a lot of the shows for the resorts here, but he did offer some private lessons after I cut a few tracks for his own shows." Shows might have been Kahz's most visible form of work, but despite how esteemed he felt right now in his marefriend's presence, he wasn't a top-tier rock star. So, that meant a lot of jobbing work, but he didn't mind so much; the sociable little lovebug loved meeting new ponies, and you didn't meet so many good ones once you rose too far up the fame pyramid. After a few minutes, he found the house-studio out on the flats of the plateau. "Hopefully Foxtrot doesn't mind the evening call..." Kahz said, as he trotted up with Yù Xīn to knock on the door, buzzing his wings a bit in anticipation...
  2. Jizara, for her part, was just a bit too happy to bother about whatever the servants were squabbling over. Not that she interfered with the 'Help' on a regular basis before; she usually gave orders, and a deadline by which she expected a task to be sorted out with associated consequences for failure. Beyond that she had no concerns over how the sausages of housework or legislation were made... And, frankly, after the big changes performed and... consumated over the course of the course of the afternoon, she wasn't much in the mood to do anything right now except rest against the side of her new matek, purring softly half-asleep. Resting in bliss, daydreaming (rather selectively) about what a second go at parenthood would be like... but the reality check of rambunctious kitten litters was for the future, for now, Niilaavin was rousing for some fresh air, and the pink sphinx stretched out, paws out and rump up, instinctively falling into feline movement. "Arrawwrrr... Ah, you know, this is my first time in the Crystal Empire. I don't think I've ever seen its full extent." Padding along with her mate outside, she nodded towards Princess Cadence. "I need to thank you again, I think. I sensed the presence of your blessing, and I hope to soon show you its fruits." She beamed, with a glow that would tell the alicorn that said hope would not go unfulfilled.
  3. It was indeed one of those Trottingham phrases, a smoothing over of 'Frightfully'. The super-refined ponies of that part of Equestria prided themselves on being able to speak without using their lips at all!... Though ponies from more hot-blooded regions would snidely allege that they couldn't use their lips for much of anything useful anyhow. As for keeping Ambrosia from using Fancy talk... well, some forces of nature wouldn't yield even to the strongest of Earth Ponies. But that was a confrontation for a much later day. For now, the little filly bounded after her Aunt and Uncle, cheeing at the promise of a treat. She giggled at Auntie Cara's talk about the rooster. "Nooo, ol' Crowy's a sweetie! He lets the hens eat first like a gennlecolt!" She recalled the words from a little lesson that her mama was giving her older brother about manners at the dinner table. "But the bas- basi- baketlets are sca-a-a-ary. One look and -unk!" She froze in place, imitating the pose of a pony suddenly turned into a stone statue.
  4. Casually tossing out the last bits needed to cover their bill and tips, Kahz took up Yu's arm and strolled out into the darkening street. It was just getting to that time of the evening where the land was darkening, but the sky hadn't yet. Of course, this being Las Pegasus, the sky never really got dark, as all the lights in the buildings above were coming on. "Better get a little further from the main strip..." The changeling murmured to himself, trying to remember if there was anypony in his contacts from the casino resort he worked at that kept a teaching studio. A name suddenly sprang to mind. "Say... I was thinking, we should probably find someone who teaches a style of dance we're both equally unfamiliar with, right?" The cheeky grin on his face would have tipped the mare off that her changeling coltfriend had something devious cooking under that chitin dome of his, but hopefully she would find it enjoyable!
  5. "Yay, parade!" Ambrosia cheered, and her present cheer would in no way diminish the cheering she would do on the actual day of the festival. That was the advantage of being so young; good things didn't have to be artificially rendered surprises to be felt strongly and sweetly in their moment. Anticipation could take root, and bloom in its time. And speaking of anticipated joys...! "Unca! Auntie!" The sight of new, or at least new to her, family was enough for the little filly to bound off her mother's back, practically bouncing off the cobbles right into a hug around the Aunt's leg. "I had your juice on the train! It was really good!" Having said her important piece, she nuzzled into Auntie's chest like her mother, before releasing her grip, stepping back, clearing her throat, and going into the closest resembling thing she could manage to the curtsey Rarity had taught her, "Ah, a-hem! It's so fraffly nice to see you!" Exciteable little country filly as she was, she couldn't help but aspire to finer things and manners, even at this age. Perhaps, especially at this age! This was the branch of the family that flowered into big-city glamour, and she wanted at least something of that to rub off on her.

    ullo, friendly neighborhood admin here! I'll start off with the standard tour of the main RP sections: If you just want to jump in right away, we have the Free for all board here: https://www.canterlot.com/forum/427-free-for-all-roleplay/ For the more longform RP on site, you'll have to fill out a character profile for either your OC's or the canon characters you want to play; that way we can ensure the power level stays within show-compatible parameters, and also gives folks a preview of what kind of characters you play and what threads you want to participate in! Gen 4 (Twilight Sparkle's Equestria) is found here: https://www.canterlot.com/forum/416-character-applications/ Gen 5 (Sunny Starscout's Equestria) is found here: https://www.canterlot.com/forum/471-character-applications/ Just as a note, Canon's are not first come first served; if you want to RP your favorite, you still can, even if someone else already has an application for them! The standard form we use for character profiles is here:
  7. Yù understood what it was to adopt a skill out of obligation, which he supposed accounted for why she hadn't been public with her dancing. "Honestly, I'm kind of the same when it comes to formal dance. A lot of the stage moves I do I just made up, back when I wasn't playing for anypony but my hivemates. There wasn't much pressure to fit in, so I could feel free to just be... me, I suppose. Turns out, that helps a lot once you come out in public, gets all the jitters out beforehoof. Nothing messes you up in dancing more than nervous jitters." He chuckled, offering her arm. "But seeing as we're both eager students, why don't we go out on the town a look for a teacher? It's a lot more fun to learn with partner, after all!"
  8. Just as Applejack could not resist nuzzling Amby, Ambrosia could not resist preening a little as she felt the admiring eyes of all passers by upon her. And why shouldn't they be looking at her, world's cutest filly atop the world's greatest mama. It felt like she was on... parade! "*Gasp* Momma, is the parade gonna happen while we're here? Auntie Rarity said there was a huuuuuge parade in Manehattan. With ginormous balloons of Princess Celestia and stuff! She even said they were gonna make a balloon of you!" That may have been the fall parade that Rarity was referring to, though to be fair the wide avenues of the city paid host to many a parade. But that was for later, for now, the crowds were thinning as AJ turned into a residential neighborhood, and they came across a gated path to a townhouse. And older gentlepony with a white moustache in a spangled uniform of red served as the gatespony, and he nodded, smiling at the two. "Ah, g'mornin Miss Applejack... or should I say Missus Applejack? And why that must be little Ambrosia! What a charming little filly y'got there!" His accent wasn't the harsh one of the streets, but the gentler lilt of one of the many Neighrish which had made their way to the city. "Dat's us!" Amby nodded excitedly, giggling, "You have a funny voice mister, I like it! Like you're always singing!" "Oho, there's never a time a song's far from me lips! I'd happily sing you a ballad, but you've got family a'waiting, so I'll wait until you come and see me again. The master of the house has been a-longing to meet you!" Chortling, he unlocked the gate and swung it wide, gesturing for them to enter.
  9. There was something so... delightfully adorable about North Wind's sudden flustering. She cared so much, deep down; nopony who didn't care would be so careless of their dignity. It reminded him a bit of himself when the reality that he was going to be a father hit him. "Nothing further, North Wind. Take all the time and assistance you need." Toys that could stand up to physical as well as magical stress to that extent were a marvel indeed, and he himself had confidence in Cadence's recommendation. He felt full of that warm glow that all relatively new parents have when seeing their peers join them in family formation. A fraternity and sorority of the future-oriented, it was a grand thing! "I think that for the most part concludes the meeting... unless there was anything you wish to discuss in private with me, Twilight?"
  10. Mama AJ, as always, had ready answers for her questions, and Amby accepted them all with the faith of a little foal. It made sense, after all. Mountains were taller than trees, therefore buildings made of stuff from mountains would be bigger than stuff from trees! And there were so many things that Amby wanted to do she almost wanted Orange-mama to walk faster. Especially since Auntie and Uncle Orange were close. "Uhuh! I'm essited to meet them too!" 'X' sounds were still a little difficult for her to pronounce, but that didn't make her any less cuter. If anything, more so. "I wanna tell them they make good juice!"

  12. Hullo, friendly neighborhood admin here!

  13. Blueblood let out a sigh of relief, his chief concerns seeming to be easing, with the potential spat between North Wind and Twilight. The Princess might have been wise, powerful, and possessed of meeting minutes, but if there was one thing that he'd seen more of than her, it was stupid and belligerent creatures at a negotiating table. Contradicting documents in a foreign country never got a cassus belli out of their heads once it was there, thus prevention had to be priority. He wondered if Twilight understood that; still a scholar at heart, she had faith in documented facts that he simply did not share. But with the conclusion of the negotiations, he permitted himself to relax. "That should finish it, yes. Thank you all... for your patience as much as all the rest. This can't have been easy." He didn't want to seem ungrateful, but it wasn't done to express gratitude until the deal was finalized. Protocol, and all that. In all reality, it was as much as he could expect from Twilight and Cadence, what was beign signed over. But one didn't say 'good game' until the end of the match. And that was the difficulty, he supposed. Twilight had made it clear that this wasn't a game for her, that she took every step with sincerity... without the light touch of separation that a magic circle of play provided. Some thought a mental construct made negotiation frivolous, but Blueblood saw it as a necessary separation of the personal and political. Barristers had to carry their briefs regardless if they personally agreed to the side, and should not be held to task as if they did. They both had briefs to carry here, though this was the first time she'd been on the other side of the table from him. Had she ever watched him at work? Or did it just look different from the other side? Of course, there were elements of family and personal loyalty at play, too, perhaps that might take a few personal tea visits to patch up. Speaking of... "I don't actually know how big a sweet tooth Niilaavin has, but I'd be shocked if it wasn't large enough to accomodate that!" He chuckled at Cadence's mention of the desserts.
  14. Both Yù's and Kahz's hearts and hormones were running hot, the 'ling could tell. He scootched over to let her sit by him once more, chuckling, "Not a day goes by that I don't hear a song that makes me think of you... but I'm a musician that sings a lot about love, so perhaps that's just a bias!" Even as he felt the Qilin settle, he knew it wouldn't take long for either of them to rile the other up once more. But this was a rhythm, and one to which they could dance. Actually, that did bring up a thought, "You sing quite well, for all that... do you dance much?"
