  1. Adventivia cautiously listened to the Cyborg, who said she was LDEL6....something something. Adventivia didn't quite catch, or remember, the whole thing, so she'd just call her L for now. Adventivia had never heard of this 'CDSM' place L was talking about, but with the mention of seizing the world for resources and extermination if she didn't cooperate she didn't think it was as friendly a place as Equestria. "What should I do?" Adventivia pondered, "If I help her, she says I'll get some kind of 'house cell', but what even is that? Like, a jail cell? No. That's not what a hero would do. But.....what can I do? She seems to trust me. I could tell her how strong heroes are! But....then she'll come back with strong people to fight us with. If I tell her heroes are really weak though.......ugh, then she could start attacking everypony she meets! What if I...." Adventivia trailed off in her mind, having thought up the perfect solution. "Sure!" Adventivia said gleefully, "I'll help you. I don't know what kind of work you're talking about, but if you want to know more about heroes then the only way I can tell you is to teach you what it means to be a hero. From this day forward, you're my apprentice!" She said with a determined look on her face that showed confidence, pointing a hoof at L. If this plan didn't work out for her she'd probably have to resort to plan B: subdue the villain.
  2. Gotta say, I probably love the art work the most! It's so well done!
  3. Adventivia covered her face when the being crashed in front of her, shielding her face from the dust and debris, a learned habit of hers from watching ponies that were actually affected by it. When she was able to see what exactly had landed in front of her she saw what appeared to be some sort of cyborg pony. She'd heard of many ponies that augmented themselves with suits of metal, or more direct implants, and had even worked with a few. This pony, however, was very odd. Even the way she spoke seemed out of the ordinary. “bio-magitech life from? No marks of ownership or magitech. Explain yourself. Added wanted info: are you a ‘hero’ if not, ware may ‘heros’ be found? Explain or have wanted date removed by force.” "Bio-magi wha? Ownership?" Adventivia began, trying to make sense of everything while slowly backing away from the black tentacles, "What do you think I am? Some kind of house plant? Yeah, I'm a hero, but who, and what, are you?" "And what does she mean by 'removed by force'?" Adventivia pondered, not really wanting to know the answer to that question. She shuddered just thinking what the cyborg planned to do with the tentacles. Was it some form of telepathy? Or, more like mind control? Either way, she had a feeling her luck just turned bad......again.
  4. Adventivia was strolling along on her journey across Equestria. She'd been making good progress so far, and was learning a lot about what being a hero meant to different ponies. As an added benefit, ponies were also becoming gradually less afraid of her as word spread faster than she could. She took out her map once more, deciding which town she should visit next, when suddenly there was a loud crack of thunder. It made Adventivia jump upright, dropping her map. She began scanning the skies searching for the source of the thunder. "That's weird," she thought, scanning lower and lower for some sign of a dark cloud, "where'd that thunder come from?" Eventually, her eyes were scanning the horizon, and off to her left she saw a large plume of dust starting to rise. "What in the...?" She began, when she saw a figure flying away. Unsure of whether it was a hero or villain, Adventivia figured her best bet was to find out first hand. "Hey!" She yelled as loud as she could, waving her viney hooves to flag down the flyer, "What's going on in that city? Is everything okay?" She waited for a response. With luck, she wouldn't be making another mistake.
  5. Dang. I'm sorry to hear about that too. Take all the time you need.
  6. Storm was probably thinking along the lines of the show, seeing Twilight as the "leader" of her friends. But, yeah, since MrCry didn't put themselves as one of the elements I suspect they'll be the storyteller and NPCs.
  7. I was hoping to be the Knight of Laughter. Was planning on him being a sort of clumsy rogue character.
  8. 5 outta, what, 7 or 8? Yeah, we're doin' pretty good right now.
  9. Had a con this weekend, sorry for the wait! I'm still here and willing!
  10. "Wh-what?" Adventivia stuttered, peeking out between her hooves, "Y-you mean you're - you're Blade Runner?!" She had heard the stories from the other students. It seemed so far fetched, how could they have been anything more? I mean, ghosts, demons, seriously?! Then again, the teachers had never outright denied Blade Runner's existence. But, everything about this guy matched the stories! Well, except for him being 20 stories tall. It was a lot for Adventivia to take in. "W-wait a sec! Hold on! You said that little filly I saved, she was a demon? How was I supposed to know?! All I saw was some guy swinging a sword at a filly and-" Adventivia's confusion began to mix with some anger as she picked her head up from the ground pondering this recent development. "Why the hay didn't you just tell me who you were from the beginning?!" She stood up, pointing a hoof at Runner. "I mean, you're the Blade Runner! You made me think you were some kind of villain!" With her anger burned off, reality began to sink in on Adventivia. "And.....I'm the one that helped a demon get away." She sat down and groaned, putting her head in her hooves. "And here I thought I was finally starting to become a hero. Instead, I've let a villain get away." If Adventivia could physically cry, she would. "I'm the worst hero ever!" With that last outburst, she ran off into the misty town, not caring where she ended up.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Well, anyway, if we're saying what elements we'd like our characters to be I'd like Laughter, if nobody minds.
  14. 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?
  15. 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.
  16. 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.'
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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!
  20. 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!"
  21. 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!"
