  1. Well, this had been an entirely uneventful day so far. Angel was lounging on a cloud over Ponyville, watching the residents go about their day. Things had been quiet for the mare recently, and while she did enjoy this town, it could get a bit boring at times. Ah well, that was part of reason she loved this town. Nice and peaceful most of the time, gives a good contrast to her adventuring. She was wearing the armor, but the blades were retracted for now and her chain was wrapped around her hoof. The pegasus zony rolled over onto her back, watching the sky for a bit and settling in for a bit of a nap unless something happened around here.
  2. Jasper the Dragon The morning had been surprisingly quiet. The only real noise was the birds in the trees singing. Though that wouldn't last long... a now-slightly-more-familiar dragon walked through the streets to the park, a guitar case slung over his sholdier and a large square case on his claws, with a satchel slung across his sholdier. He made his way to under a tree and unslung the satchel and guitar, setting them and the case down on the grass. He opened the satchel and took a large cable from it, opening the case to reveal a suprisingly nice and well-cared-for Fetlock Pegacaster in a shade that matched his darker scales. he carefully plugging the cable into the bottom of the guitar and opened the large case to reveal a portable amp, which he plugged the other end of the cable into, flipping hte switches on the top, setting the volume to a surprisingly low 4/20 as he slipped the guitar around his sholdiers and sat down with his head very close to the amp, plucking a single string, then adjusting the tention, taking care to make sure all the strings were properly tuned Once it was tuned, he turned the speaker away from him and cranked it to 20 and hit a power chord The large flock of birds taking to the air from all around could be seen from across the town, and everyone in the park turned towards the dragon in the band shirt as he began to play, and sing, though the vocals were more than a little lost among the guitar... You're on your own! Such a d--- shame ,I'd have to break it to you! You're all alone! You oughta just stay quiet, You can't do that can you? Parading like you own the place But give it time we'll all forget your face! You're on your own! Such a d--- shame, No one's ever coming for you! (...) Needless to say parents were covering their foals' ears (and folding their own as tightly against their skulls as they could) while they hurried out of the park... When it finished jasper smiled to himself "and that is how we clear a room" he chuckled as he turned it back down to about half volume and began strumming again, though this time he seemed less like he was playing a full song as he was just going through some chords and bars trying to find a good sound.
  3. Cloudy Skies Jasper Dragon Azure "Iggy" Ignine It was a beautiful day in ponyville. The sky was clear of any clouds, the sun was signing, it was just slightly warmer than it usually was this time of the year... And panicked screams were heard from the everfree. A completely typical day. Two figures burst from the perimeter of the forest, a familiar Kirin and a Dragon. Both turned and hurled a fireball back into the forest behind them as they ran another couple dozen feet to be sure they were out of the range of its magic Iggy panted as she nearly collapsed "Everyone alright?" "I think I have at least most of my limbs" snarked Jasper, almost laying on the ground from exhaustion Iggy managed a faint smile "What about you, cloudy?" there was no response Iggy's smile turned into a look of horror "Cloudy? CLOUDY?!" Jasper turned to look back the way they had come and muttered a harsh explicative "They much have gotten him!" "We have to go back! We have to save him!" exclaimed iggy Jasper nodded but didn't move, barely able to keep from passing out from exhaustion... they both agreed that they needed to go back... but they were going to need help...
  4. Fluttershy and Rarity had been out of the singing game for quite some time. Though Rarity would continue to exercise her hobby of being a talented soprano for the Ponytones, Fluttershy would usually only sing to her animal friends, and once at a private show for her friends to see. She wanted to do something nice for the citizens of her town but was persuaded by Rarity to do the traditional thing during Hearth's Warming Fluttershy never looked forward to doing. Sure, Fluttershy could sing songs casually in public, but the moment she took notice that others took notice of her, it struck irrational fear in the yellow pegasus' spine. It was too bad, too. She was a very talented singer in her own right who did it for the right reasons. She enjoyed it. But deciding to go with Rarity on a carolling trip with just the two of them ended up being something she would agree to attempt. And maybe after one slightly uncomfortable holiday evening bellowing out her songs in the first snowfalls of winter in Ponyville, she would be closer to be less afraid of being heard singing. "Thanks for suggesting this idea to go carolling throughout Ponyville, Rarity. It was a good idea." Fluttershy hesitated. "Even though I may not be too excited about singing in front of other ponies." She smirked a nervous smile. Fluttershy was walking away with Rarity from the unicorn's boutique and into the direction of the residential zones of Ponyville proper. The sun had already set and Ponyville's street lamps speckled a friendly constellation along the pathways. Fluttershy was wearing a cozy sweater and a pair of earmuffs with pink flower designs on them. If the paths were clear of the light snow that fell earlier in the day, she would have no problem keeping warm through the evening.
  5. It was a clear night, not a single cloud in the sky. The air was a little cool but barely needing a jacket yet. Winter was comming but it was still a ways off. in some places one could hear bats chirping as tehy made their nightly hunts, while the insects buzzed and chirped their own melody. But then, there was a bright twinkle in the sky, and everything fell silent. the bats fell silent, the insects fell silent, even the breeze stopped... then a loud whistling could be heared, followed by a bright almost blinding glow before... BOOM The hill was no more, dirt and rocks thrown in all directions, leaving behind a massive crater... and inside it was a still glowing chunk of rock.... It seems to almost call out to you... to everycreature.... what is it? where did it come from? what was going to happen...?
  6. Jasper The Dragon It had been a long day... How would YOU feel being gotten up early in the morning, after staying up late scouring the house, looking in every drawer, behind every cabinet, and inside every crack in the wall, to make sure nothing was left behind and everything was packed up? Jasper felt even worse than that. The dragon had never liked change --- well outside of finding some place and some (he hated to admit it) close friends who treated him like he had some kind of value. But as for moving? that ranked high on his list of "least favorite things I ever want to do" and not just because he liked to laze about, listening to his music and (another thing he'd hate to admit to) reading a good book, perhaps taking a nap part of the way through, but because when you stayed in one place, you learned all its quirks... you knew which window was going to give you the most sunlight, which floorboard would creak and wake up the whole house if you stepped on it, and just the right way to jiggle the toilet handle... and then it was gone... The dragon sighed as he sat down hard, back against a tree "even all the trees feel different" he snorted, letting himself slide down a little so he was more half-sitting and half-lieing against the tree. He did have to admit, this position gave him a nice vantage point - there were enough bushes nearby that most ponies didn't see him, but the bushes were thin enough at the bottom that he could see under them and past them to watch ponies going about their lives - one other thing he liked sometimes: watching ponies. Not in a lewd sense, that idea disgusted him, and not in a predatory sense, even if he did idly wonder time to time what they might taste like... no, he just liked watching them, wondering where they were going, watching them have their little struggles - it was like opening a book to a random page and trying to puzzle out what was going on... and it didn't hurt that the quiet rhythm of their hooves and the murmur of their speech just-out-of-earshot made him feel sleepy... maybe he would take a nap while he waited for Cloudy to go find them dinner, and for Iggy to cause some commotion with her magic... after all, even if there was no magical seal of quality on Iggy's flank proudly proclaiming to the world that she loved magic too much, it might as well have been there... and he knew to enjoy the quiet while he could... slowly letting his eyes droop, then close... Completely unaware that his little "hiding place" he found, had already been compromised and somecreature was about to disturb his nap before he even got it started...
  7. The Great and Powerful Trixie The last ray of the fading sun finally set over the mountain, casting the room into darkness but not before landing on a calendar with a large circled X over the day's date.... The pale blue mare who occupied the office, leaned back in her chair, sighing with relief. She wasn't going to turn on the lights, she wasn't even going to close the window. After a day like today, she just wanted to relax. Trixie's horn glowed as she unlocked a drawer and pulled out a rather old looking bottle. She looked at the label, almost completely worn off with age now "How many years has it been?" she asked as she lifted the bottle up "Only one drink left... only one reminder of who I used to be..." she said, floating out a goblet with her cutiemark on it and pouring out the last drink, raising the glass to the dark window she spoke in a quiet voice "Here's to where we have been, here's to where we are going, here's to the journey along the way" she drank the dark liquid. The sound of the bottle shattering could easily be heard in the hallway, no doubt disturbing anyone else in that wing of the school. But they wouldn't hear trixie floating over the broom and dustpan and sweeping up the remains of the bottle, and her past "Now, thats all over, its time to move on, nothing left to remind me of where I came from... only where I am going!"
  8. Azure "Iggy" Ignine To say it was a strange day in Ponyville would be superfluous - it was ALWAYS a strange day in ponyville... but on this particular strange day, many a resident was staring up and down the main street, but thankfully not at some monster escaped from the Everfree, nor at some strange fallout from events at the school, it wasn't even a mess left int he wake of the CMC for once! No, today they were staring, (with some pretending not to stare) at a large wagon rolling down the street, pulled by a brightly colored Kirin, who was humming to herself as she made her way through town. It wasn't like nopony had heard of the mystical race, but for most of them this was the first time they'd seen one in the fur... or scales... or, well, both. The kirin in question, unbeknownst to them going by Azure Ignine (Iggy to her friends) finally stopped at a house not far from the castle. The kirin looked at the structure both in awe and in disappointment. Whether she was wishing that the Princess of Friendship still lived there... or maybe even lamented the unfortunate replacement of Golden Oaks with the castle, was uncertain (actually it was both). Though when she thought nopony was looking she levitated a small piece of crystal (broken off from the castle sometime in the past, probably due to either the CMC or Rainbow Dash crashing into it) and into a bag, which she meticulously labeled and placed in the wagon. After this she walked over to the sign out front that has once said "FOR RENT" and now said "RENTED" and pulled it from the ground. Walking to the door, she pulled a key out from her bags and unlocked the door, taking a deep breath... and sneezing, causing a huge cloud of dust to fill the house and flow out the door, causing iggy to drop the sign where it was on the porch and sending the kirin scurrying back to the wagon coughing "ok... so its going to take come cleaning..." she said between the coughs "Cloudy! Jasper! We're here!" she waited a moment, hearing no response she frowned "Cloudy! Jasper!" Now her eyes turned white as tiny flames danced around them "Jasper get up!" she exclaimed as she levitated the blanked off the back of the wagon. ...but all that was back there were boxes... She blinked, her eyes returning to normal as the flames faded... she then sighed "...Boys..." she muttered disparagingly as she carefully folded the blanked up and placed it next to the boxes Iggy then walked back to the house and looked inside "Welp, now's as good a time as ever to test out my new cleaning spell!" she said, her horn glowing. Moments later there was an explosion as the whole town was covered in a dust cloud, followed by a shower of soap bubbles... yep... just another typical day in ponyville...
  9. Cloudy Skies It was a beautiful day in equestria, the sun was bright, the heat was moderate, though a little on the warm side and there wasn't a cloud in the sky... ok there was one cloud, but it was so small it probably was forgotten when the pegasai cleared all the rest out! Overall, it was a great day for a new beginning! the long trip had been a chore for the 'griff, as much as he enjoyed assisting his best friend in her research, there was a limit on how many times he could hear the words "Wild Magic" and "Paranormal Nexus" before he went crazy... and Jasper's continual commentary on the bumpy ride and the harness of the wagon didn't help any --- especially when Cloudy had already told him that if he didn't like it, he could just fly --- which was exactly the method that Cloudy had employed for large portions of the trip. Much as he hated to agree with Jasper, the pesky dragon had been right, the wagon was uncomfortable and bumpy... Not that jasper would have noticed it if he had taken a turn helping pull the wagon... But that was behind them, while Jasper and Iggy found their way to the trio's new home, Cloudy had been tasked with finding them all a nice meal to celebrate... so he needed some fish for himself, gemstones for jasper, and enough salad to split between himself and Iggy. Cloudy found himself after a bit of a search looking around the small but surprisingly well-stocked ponyville market. Though he noticed while he was eyeing the wares of the pony merchants, there were quite a few eyeing him as well. Was it really that odd to see a hippogryph here? He thought that in the time since the Storm King's defeat, his kind had spread around enough that every pony would have seen at least a couple before now... maybe Iggy had been wrong about Ponyville being a magnet for weird phenomenon! he chuckled to himself at the idea, making sure to smile at the ponies -mostly foals- who were eyeing him as he began slowing browsing the stalls, looking for the components for his and his friends inaugural dinner in their new home!
  10. "We should be there soon...." said the crimson maned quilin mare while gazing through window of Friendship Express. She was quite a beauty, even if she sported a sad and worried look in her eyes. "Uh-huh...." a much younger quilin, very similar to the mare, answered, albeit without much enthusiasm. While her stare was glued to the moving landscape, she seemed rather indifferent to everything around her. "..........." Karen Esaka stared with concern at her daughter. She was like this for months, ever since she and her husband had their great 'disagreement'. While it was preferable compared how miserable Homura previously was, it still was..... "I will be fine Mom...." younger quilin said, as if she read her parent's thoughts. "...I can take care for myself." This prompted a heavy sigh from older Esaka. "I know you can..." she said while patting her daughter's head. "....but I wish you would be more then 'fine'. Me and grandpa are worried." "Grandpa? You talked with him? When?" Homura asked, clearly surprised. "Well not talked, but I written to him. He's very concerned about you, and will come visit...." "Ohhhhh!" filly exclaimed, suddenly more lively. She absolutely adored her Grandpa. "...next month." Karen finished. "....Ah....." Esaka junior quickly deflated. "I guess.....I guess I can hold on for a month...." she added under her breath. "Hold tight to that thought okay?" Karen said with a smile. With those words train started to slow down. Soon, Ponyville platform came into view. "Some member of the Teachers Body will come for you, so just wait for them alright? I wish we could come at the start of the school year, we could avoid all of that then, but...." after all Karen had to tie everything up regarding her new job. "Rember, if something happens you can always contact me." "Yes Mom." Homura said, automatically "...And Canterlot is not that far from here..." "...I know Mom..." young quilin confirmed again "Ara ara...." Karen muttered, still somewhat worried. "And please, don't get into any fights...." "....Uhhhhh...." Homura made annoyed grunt. Not that she currently felt like getting into any bout anyway. "....without reason." crimson maned mare finished. "Oh......" the filly expressed her surprise. "...I think.....I think I can come up with some....." "Right? Now get your bag and remember to be nice to other. I love you Sweetie." Karen embraced her daughter with a hug, who quickly returned it. "I love you too Mom...." * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * Fourty later, Homura was still standing on the platform with her amber duffel bag. Apparently whatever school guardian was supposed to pick her up, she or he didn't got the memo. Such punctuality would never fly in Neighpon. Then again, she wasn't in Polohoma anymore. "....Shaaaa....." Esaka expressed with a heavy sight. Should she wait some more? The day already weighted heavily on her shoulders, without boredom on top of it. "...I think I walk. After all, how far can it be? And touring the town would come sooner or later." Homura already started to justify her decision. "Maybe I get myself some manga or two...." she added while quickly recalling how much allowance she got. Yup, it should be enough for five dozen. Her mom was actually quite a wealthy mare, being from reach family, and having saved quite a sum from her gardening work in Neighpon. Despite this she insisted on not leeching from her family, and got herself job in Canterlot as well. "And I can always ask for directions, right?" Esaka said to herself, before puttin her bag on her back as she walked off the platform. The day was still young.
  11. Heart Shield started the day in his little town home along the streets of Canterlot. He had been notified he was supposed to meet Sombra at the Ponyville train station. To make a trip to the Castle of the Two Sisters. Stretching out of bed early in the morning. He headed down stairs to make himself some breakfast. After finishing up he started to gather his stuff for this trip. He had to come prepared, Especially with the company he would have. Tucking a belt with bags attached to it under his wings. Tightening it, Heart put all his things in it, checking them off as he did. First things first Binoculars. Never know when you might need those. Probably would be good for looking at the castle from afar, to determine the best way in. A lantern. Being a old ruin, It was a given that it was going to be dark inside. Among with tools to open locks, several other small tools and items that might be of use. Last but not lest. His sword. who knew when he might need to protect himself. Not being able to use the one from the guard, He had saved up his bits for his own personal one. Checking one last time that he had got everything, He opened the door to his little home, and headed out into the streets. Heart Shield had originally thought about flying to Ponyville, But with all these items on him he was a bit weighted down. Trotting down the street, he headed for the train station. Approaching the ticket booth he asked for a ticket to Ponyville. Handing over his bits, the station master hoofed over one ticket. Heart shield hadn't waited long on the platform before the train came into the station. Boarding it he wandered down the aisle finding a seat. Getting comfortable, Heart stared out the window at the scenery as the Train began to chug along the track. Admittedly he began to zone out a bit as he watched the scenery wiz past him. Suddenly the train lurched to a halt. They where in Ponyville station it would appear. Standing up. the gray Pegasus filed out of the train. It was a busy cool morning, Taking a deep breath in he could feel the air was still moist from the rain that night. Looking all around the platform, He hadn't noticed Sombra any where yet. Trotting across the station platform he found an empty bench that he decided to sit in and wait. Heart Shield watched as ponies went to and fro about their business. He figured Sombra would have to be easy to spot among a crowd of ponies like this. His blue eyes scanned over the crowd. He was starting to have second thoughts about this trip the more he thought about it. After all he was taking a trip with Sombra to a ruined castle where no average pony dared to tread. It just all seemed a bit risky to him. Heart shield decided he would have to keep his wits about him at all times, and watch his back. Who knew what or who might try to trap him in there. All tho maybe he was over thinking all of this.
  12. ((yes this is a repost - but upon advice from staff I've completely redone the second half)) Scootaloo The little orange filly lay on the blanket staring up at the sky... not a single spec of movement... she looked down at the blanket, specifically picked out for today because of its rainbow pattern. Atop it was a picnic basket and a plate with a sandwich sat on the other side of the blanket, untouched. In front of her was a similar plate by now only containing crumbs... likely from several sandwiches... the young pegasus opened the basket and pulled out the small clock, looking at the time she hung her head "she's not coming..." she finally said. In the past, she would have cried, but by now, all her tears were long gone, all that was left was the empty feeling in the pit of her stomach that no matter how many sandwiches she ate would never be filled. Another long sigh and a few moments later she put the clock back into the basket and began to pack everything up, she stopped at one wrapped up parcel, slowly unwrapping it to reveal a slice of Zap Apple cake, starting to get hard and crusty at this point, clearly having been saved a little too long --- no doubt having been packed on at least one other, no doubt failed, picnic... wondering if she should give up and throw it away, or save it for yet another unknown period of time... ----------==========---------- Rainbow Dash Dash watched as the door closed to the gym, letting out a contented sigh, she stood up on her back legs, spread her wings, and fell backwards onto the hay-bale "That took SO long, but I just know they're gonna be awesome!" she turned her head to the side, looking at the clock, looking at it hard and a puzzled look moved across her face "hang on... was there something I was supposed to do after practice?" she asked herself, then a hook of horror came across her face "Ohmygosh! I forgot!" she said, bolting upright "I was supposed to go hang out with scootaloo nearly an hour ago!" She leapt up and flew towards the door *WHAM* Completely forgetting in her rush that the door didn't open unless you pushed down the bar... Dash shook her head to clear it, glancing around to make sure nopony had seen her embarrassing mistake, then walking over and gently opening the door, making sure it closed behind her, and then blasting off into the sky with such force that it left the trees shaking and one student chasing after some papers he had been carrying... Dash landed on the empty hill, looking around "Scootaloo!" she called "Sorry I'm late!" she looked around "SCOOTALOO!" she sighed, then something caught her attention. She smelled something... her favorite cake, the unmistakable scent of Zap Apple! Maybe scoots was still around! She flew around the area, trying to locate the smell, finally finding it, and her face fell even harder... there int he dirt under the tree was the cake, clearly having been unceremoniously scraped off a plate... and from the looks of it, the cake had been sitting out a few days too long anyway... Dash walked -not flew- back to the top of the hill, sitting down hard "I let her down... again..." she said "First when I had to go wrangle that storm from the everfree... then when I had an emergency wonderbolt practice because Streak was sick the day before the show... and now because I was more focused on coaching..." She watched as the sun slowly descended towards the far horizon, stopping in its path occasionally, no doubt because Twilight was still struggling to master controlling it. Normally Dash would have laughed at this and made some joke about her alicorn friend... but right now it only served to remind her of all the times she'd been there for her friends in the past... and how it seemed she was there less and less now... "Some element of loyalty I am... I cant even be there for the filly that matters the most to me..."

Ugh... guess this is my punishment for leaving early with the squad so we could get an extra practice in before the game..." she snorted "eh, I'll do it after I rest a bit, I got nothing else important to do tonight, they can wait another fifteen minutes" with that she flopped back down on the hay-bale, closed her eyes and had soon drifted off into a nap...
  14. Roads, Tempest has seen plenty of them in her life and walked far too many alone in her youth. Yet here she was walking a road she took many years ago to a town she last saw as a runaway in passing. She did not remember ponyville with much clarity do to how long it has been and her age at the time but what few things she did remember were hardly the same. The town has changed a lot in that time… Some more tall and ugly than others but Twilight's dreadful taste in homes was not her place to judge… But if she lived here she may have to plant a tree or two to cover that eyesore up. But regardless of that atrocity she needed to rest. Maybe not in the form of laying around but more mentally. Being alone left her… Alone with her thoughts and after a few days of that she concluded that was NOT a good idea for her at the moment with the turmoil raging inside of her. How will others feel if they knew the truth? Yes in many ways she was lied to and lead astray… But in other ways she did much of it willingly and even enjoyed it. Reflecting on this was troubling as her time alone gave her plenty of time to dig deep into herself and what she was learning was only making it more… unpleasant. She enjoyed, no, she loved the power she had. With a sigh she pushed her dark thoughts away as best she can and looked to the town she was passing… around. She did not feel ready to just walk in to it, it was far too close to Canterlot. They all must have known what she did and will ask to many things she does not wish to be asked about yet as deep down she did not know how to answer them. Guiding her eyes to the countryside she saw the clear layout of a farm. She remembered that farm, she stole apples from it way back when… Apples… That one with the hat, Applejack was it? She said something about living in ponyville. Was this her farm? Maybe it can giver her the shelter she needed and offer some work as well. Farmers were ever in need of an extra pair of hooves after all and many were not tro shy to take on passing ponies for short bost to pony power. So maybe this Applejack will help. She was a friend of Twilights and seeing as Twilight insisted that she and her were friends… Well, friend of a friend helps a friend? That was how that saying worked… maybe. Whatever it may be She made her way to the farm with the midday sun glittering on the black steel of her armor and undersuit. She has… been hesitant to remove it. She can’t explain why but she felt very vulnerable for now and it supplied her some feeling of familiarity, comfort… Pride. Approaching the gate that marking the entryway to the farm she stopped and looked over the home and farmland before her… Forgotten memories glimmer before her like broken glass on the floor. Hiding, rain, stealing an apple to eat before pushing on. She flicked her ears and closed her eyes as remembered her life as a filly. So young and alone, what if she just… stayed here? Maybe they’d have adopted her? It was pointless to think about yet it lasted longer than she wanted it to. With a frustrated snort of anger she opens her eyes and walked past the gate and into the farm itself. “HELLO!? Eanypony around!?” She yelled out, hoping they were not busy and she was not being to bothersome.
  15. [[OOC discussion]] The sun hung lazily in the west, still shining brightly over Ponyville, but beginning to approach the end of Celestia's day. A large, old caravan lumbered along the dirt road on its way into town. The paint, somewhat faded from years of sun, depicted a stylized stage with lights around it. Emblazoned over this display, were the words "Tour d'Equestria" in large ornate letters. Under which it said "Touring Theatre". The vehicle swayed side to side gently, pulled by a very large, sturdy Earth Pony riddled with scars. He smiled as he crested the hill and saw the town come into view. He stopped a moment and stomped thunderously on the ground. "What is it, hoof?" called a voice from inside "Are you tired?" He stomped once. "Just a moment." the voice requested. some rustling from inside and a crash then out came a grey pony "What is it?" He asked Hoof gave him an expectant look. "Sorry" the grey pony said "he's asleep" Hoof pointed to the town down the hill. "Thunderhoof," The grey one started "get ready for a real bed. We're here." Hoof stomped excitedly, and continued on. Grey went back inside. Inside, grey pony walled over to a sleeping unicorn and gently shook him awake. "Stage!" he whispered "Stage, wake up. We're almost there!" Stage stirred, spoke a few words in French before "Flaire, please. Let me sleep. It has been a long week." He grumbled "Wait. We are here?" he asked "Almost." Flaire answered "Maybe 5 minutes." Stage groaned. "I tell you what. You know where the list is, yes?" he offered "Yes, director, of course. I'll take care of it, you guys can sleep." Flaire answered "Don't forget the grease. That wheel has been driving me up the wall." "Don't worry, I've got this." He was met with snoring. "Alright. I've got this." Flaire said to himself. A few minutes later, the caravan stopped moving, and he heard a heavy thud outside. He grabbed his saddle bag, and climbed out to the driver seat to check on Thunderhoof. He heard loud snoring coming from the ground. He looked down and saw Hoof crumpled in front of the caravan sleeping soundly. "It really has been a long week." Flaire chuckled. He climbed down the short ladder from the seat down to the axle, and jumped to the ground. They'd made it to the outer edge of the small town. Flaire could see the star-shaped spire in the distance that belonged to the castle of friendship, signifying that he was, indeed, in Ponyville. He looked around. There were a couple of ponies still up and about. The day was not yet done, but time was not on his side. Flaire trotted down the street looking about the houses and businesses for the stores he needed. As he looked, his face slowly contorted from an excited smile for a new place into one of confusion and mild concern. until, all at once, he stopped and quietly exclaimed. "Oh, Fi!" he complained "I don't see what I'm looking for anywhere! Maybe I should've waited for Stage to help me after all." He reached in his bag and pulled out a list in his teeth, putting it in his hoof to look through. "Do we really need that many apples?" He questioned. Then, thinking about Thunderhoof's insatiable appetite, said "Actually, better get more, to be safe." Then a gust of wind blew the paper away "Ah!" he exclaimed "get back here!" He began galloping after it with reckless abandon. Paying such little attention, he didn't notice the pony he was barreling straight for.
  16. [[RP post]] There's a new pony in Ponyville. He's just a bit different, but hopefully, he'll be accepted all the same. He needs some help getting some things, cause he's new here and has no clue where to go. If you have an OC who would realistically be out in Ponyville in the evening, and would greet a new face and offer to help, then I'd love to see where it goes. Just lemme know you're interested and I can write an intro, and get the rp started. I'm not super good at multitasking, so I'd prefer to have just one other character in the rp. Two would be ok, but pushing it.  Any and all questions are welcome, and I'd be happy even just to discuss OCs if you want (even if you're not in the rp/don't plan to be. I love chatting about my OCs). If you saw the already underway rp and really want to join for whatever reason, go ahead and ask here, and I might consider it. Thanks in advance. The OC I'm using is going to be the freshly accepted Dramatic Flaire. He's a part changeling earth pony who's an actor in a traveling theatre called "The Tour d'Equestria" which has just stopped in Ponyville. They need some supplies (mostly food) and Flaire was tasked with getting them while the others sleep. Later, they're going to put on some plays for the public, and stick around for a while before moving on to their next location. PS I might, for future rps, make apps for the other members of the theatre, depending if anyone expresses interest in them after my intro.
  17. It's been a while since Swift Squall was in the Castle of Friendship. Various commitment and obligations always got in the way fro another visit, preventing Squall from dropping to say 'Hi' to his Sweetheart or asking the Princess Sparkle for opinion on some important matters. Unfortunately, his presence here this evening was once again dictated by duty. There was something made Swift spent his nights sleepless lately, and for the welfare of Equestria and beyond it had to be addressed.... "Sorry to drop by so unexpectedly Dear....." Swift apologized to his fiancee while they stood in the Castle's main hall - now illuminated by the pale light of the moon. Princess Sparkle was away right now. For how long? Who knows? It didn't wasn't really relevant right now - especially seeing that he had to exchange words with her as well, regarding the same issue. "I just felt.....that this place is more secure then most. And Saraneighvo....Well, Saraneighvo isn't really an option, is it?" he said, almost sounding apologetic to the crimson pegasus. "......I am not sure who else will come. I tried to reach out to however many I could yet....." he paused for a moment, before taking a deep breath. Noblepony turned around and gazed at the Fire. "....You agree with me, do you? At least on the part that the current course can't continue?" he asked, almost hesitant.
  18. Having contemplated seeing the sights around equestria outside of his home in the Velvet strand, Lockhart Thunder walked down the path out of his beloved home village. It felt a little bit strange for him, and he worried about being away from his herd. Lockhart had always dreamed of traveling around equestria, But he was always to fearful to leave his herd, anxious that something might befall of them while he is gone. Having talked about it for a long time to his Dear Autumn, She and a few other close Peryton finally managed to convince him that the herd would be just fine, and that a few other younger bucks were willing to fill his place for awhile, and that he should takes some time to relax and enjoy it. Having crossed the lakes, Lockhart headed down past Cloudsdale and into Ponyville. Trying to put the anxiousness of being away behind him The winged deer trotted over a hill looking over Ponyville. Stopping to rest for a moment on the path he gazed upon the town below. Looking in amazement at all the houses around. The Pony kinds homes where much different from that of his homeland which where all simple underground homes dug out of the hillside. These on the other hand where all above ground structures, with various features and designs. Some being more intricate than the other. Something that was totally new to someone with simple tastes like his kind. Walking into town Lockhart looked around at all the things to see. It was so much more busier than at home. Taking it all in The large winged deer trotted down the dirt paved street through town, a sweet smell trailing behind him. His magic was much weaker alone, but was still prevalent around him. As he wandered around looking for something to get into, he noticed all the ponies going about their business, and walking the streets like him. Lockhart had been used to being around ponies as his homeland was much visited by their kind for the Peryton's magic, But this felt different. Back home he was around his fellow Peryton. He was however the only one of his kind here, He felt out of place, exposed, He felt like he stuck out among all the other ponies and could be easily spotted from afar. Even being a large Peryton, Lockhart couldn't shake the thought in the back of his mind that he was vulnerable, and exposed. Taking a deep breath in and exhaling out, Lockhart tried to put his mind off of it as continued down the street gazing into the windows of shops as he passed by hoping to find something to occupy his mind and help him relax a little. Perhaps maybe he should visit one of the baked goods shops around to see what kind of cuisine the ponies liked. Lockhart thought to himself as he searched around for such a shop. he gave a bit of a nervous chuckle thinking about all the looks he might get walking into a shop. He knew the Peryton didn't get out much, and he figured it would come as a surprise to ponies to see one of his kind in Ponyville. He almost wandered if he was drawing attention even now, as he let his surrounding slip from his view as he searched for a shop to visit. Something that he wasn't much used to.
  19. Hope and optimism spring ever eternal in the minds of ponies. At least, that was what must have been so for a mare to run, for years, a wine and grape punch shop smack dab in the middle of cider country. Not that Berry Punch resented the Apple family at all! It was just that she thought there was room enough for all fruits in this town. Enough of her fellow citizens seemed to agree to keep her shop afloat, but not quite enough to make it a success. "Success" being defined as enough to give her little filly the life her mother felt she deserved. Dreams of little Ruby Pinch being Equestria's fifth Princess aside, Berry really did need help to move stock this year. And wouldn't you know it, but a new mare from the Crystal Empire came to town, one skilled in making crafts from crystals! Just the sort of thing needed to showcase her wonderful beverages. It being a slow day at her own shop, Berry felt no shame in shuttering early, and trotting down to the new mare's house, rapping on the door with great expectations...
  20. @tacobob ------- Sweet Apple Acres was a big place. Aside from the number of orchards they had, from reds, to greens and even Zap Apples having their own patch: theirs was a land built on the backs of their ancestors who had first settled Ponyville. It t’weren’t no small operation. It was up to them to provide food for all the ponies settling here and so as more and more came to settle more orchards were planted. Sweet Apple Acres came to be more than just the acres originally settled. That meant there was a whole lot of work to do. The work fell squarely on the shoulders of the Apples and their kin to tend the fields. The spring was finally here. Thanks to Twilight being in charge of the planning for the committee Winter Wrap-up went by faster letting them sow seeds sooner. Though it meant starting work earlier, something Mac was at odds at. He liked keeping busy and maintaining the barn was a regular chore, upkeep with the fields seasonal, but it was a full time jo and Mac here liked taking naps on occasion. His sister was more the workaholic where as he was responsible so stealing away for naps in a pile of hay wasn't much a surprise for his kin to spot. Today was such a day. With lunch abiding the red apple a well deserved break he decided to just take a moment to collect himself. It was in that moment he was leaving the barn. Shaking out his boss the substantially built Apple would loose hay from his fur, catching a straw between his lips before he let out a snort. Reaching up he'd give a good brush of his honeysuckle colored mane to ensure any and all evidence of his leisure was dusted away.
  21. Today was the big day! Captain Fire Walker made her way through the (currently) quiet pathways of Ponyville as she balanced an box of recently baked muffins she purchased from Sugar Cube Corner on her back. Like the good little officer, she was on time to meet both Ponyville's beloved Princess Twilight, and six very special ponies that would soon be protecting the happy little village that had become the center of rather important events during the last few years. This included the return of Princess Luna, a rather epic battle between an oversized vampiric centaur and the purple princess of friendship herself, not to mention more than a few invasions. As the village grew in stock, the greater the 'events of interest' became, so they needed a proper guard to keep an eye on the place. The red Pegasus silently pondered the small group of ponies her new boss had picked. Some she knew, others she did not. The first was a officer named Flash Sentry. His once promising career hit a bit of a roadblock after he had been kidnapped and brainwashed into aiding the infamous attack against the Crystal Fair not that long ago. And while he had later been tried and cleared of his 'crimes', he had been pushed into the unglamorous role of an R.E.A paper-pusher. The stallion deserved a second chance, and while she had never encountered the Pegasus pony, Princess Twilight had only good things to say about him. Fire even asked her brothers in the guard about him. Things like 'He's a really nice guy' and '"FLASH SENTRY helps his friends whenever they need him! Sergeant Bonfire was next. Like Flash, he was another pony the mare had not been properly introduced to. But from what she heard, he was a well rounded, experienced solider. The hefty unicorn was an fully trained Pyromancer and an certified R.E.A instructor. While shooting fireballs at his foes was very useful, the guard would need him more for his experience and discipline. He would be very useful in training new recruits and Ponyville citizens.He was stern, but fair pony who did not creep her out like that General Pummel did. Oh how he gave her the Jibblies! And there was Rapid Fire. Oh dear. How did he end up on the list? He was a highly skilled and respected officer, but sweet, baby Celestia, he was an utter hottie. Like meow. But would he be suitable for the job? Did it matter? Fire Walker had attended more than a few training missions with the very model of horsey perfection back in the day, but never had the courage to speak to him. And while she later found out that he was into stallions, this was a guy she could still admire from afar. But now she would be near him and oh. Maybe she should just think about those muffins she had on her back. So hot and so firm. ARGH! Next was Raven Shadowfire, an young recruit that held a good deal of promise, or at least that what's the red Pegasus had read about her. She had suffered a serious horn injury at a young age but would not let that stop her from doing what she wanted. She would be an ideal student for Bonfire. With all the skilled soldiers and wizards marching about, they needed somepony who could help those effected by Ponyville's occasional bouts of crazy. Placidity was a highly skilled psychologist and while born a mute, was skilled in telepathy. Not only could she aid Ponyville citizens in dealing with unpleasant situations, she would be also handy when dealing with their foes. Sometimes an enemy could be defeated with the powers of friendship and understanding. If not, that's when the fire magic and pole arms fit in. And finally there was Applejack. Why in the world did the already very busy earth pony throw her hat into this? Not only did she have a foal to take care of, there was also her elderly grandmother and an filly sister she needed to keep an eye on. There was also a farm AND a school she worked on. Yikes! That gal did more in one morning than most ponies did all week. Still, she was one mare the officer could count on and utterly impossible to say 'no' to. The mare arrived at the castle and quickly made her way into the room they were to use as the 'meeting' are for now. There was a small table with an rather festive pink coffee maker mounted on. There she would place the muffin box and start up the coffee maker. Comfortable chairs all needed a goof 'fluffing' which she started on.......She was early, so hopefully the others would be arriving soon...
  22. Starshine's pink mane fluttered in the wind at the train stop. Using a simple levitation spell, Star carried her suitcases off of the platform she arrived at. Tucked away in her suitcase was an invitation to the animal shelter in Ponyville. Just thinking about the animals that were waiting for her made Star giddy. She couldn't wait to take care of them! The light breeze that carried through her mane, causing it to lightly flick her face, reminded her that she needed to focus. Star had only ever been in Ponyville a couple of times, mostly on the outskirts, and would need to be observant if she was going to find the shelter. Starshine began trodding through the streets of Ponyville. All around her were buildings of different shapes and sizes, some were curvy and ornate, others rectangular and formal. Overall Ponyville was a diverse place, so it was no surprise that the building themselves were unique. Star scanned her area, she recognized the fields where she had helped during Winter Wrap-Up awhile ago, but that was really it, aside from the obvious landmarks. It took Starshine another twenty minutes before she finally asked somepony for directions. The mare gave her exact directions, before hurrying along. It took Star not even three minutes to find what she was looking for. Star, upon seeing her destination wheeled her suitcase behind her, packed with supplies, at an increased speed to reach the shelter. Once she had walked inside, Star wasn't exactly sure what she was supposed to look for. The invitation hadn't really told her which pony she should talk to, so Star stood there, a confused look on her face. As far as she could tell, nopony seemed to aware of her presence, and nopony seemed to recognize her as their guest... Was there a specific pony that she was supposed to meet? Had she arrived too late? Too early? She released the levitation spell on her suitcase handle. She unzipped it and pulled out her invitation, and then rezipped it. She left it floating in front of her as she reread.
  23. It was always a rare chance to spread her wings, and escape the chains of her lofty position. The pristine Canterlot castle was steadily shrinking behind her, and overhead, the sky was slowly developing an orange tint to the blue as the sun slowly began its descent towards the horizon. Being awake before the sunset was the earliest time she'd risen thus far, and although she enjoyed her sleep, a period in which she could peacefully rest, her restlessness had been growing lately. It'd been far too long since she'd gotten out of the castle, and not for an event that required the presence of a princess to oversee it. It was about time that she tried to pursue something that she missed: the freedom she once had those thousand years ago before her fall. When she could freely explore the Everfree Forest with Melvin, and spend what time she could wrangle out of her sister.. before she'd begun to get shrugged off more and more in favor of ponies. Her blue wings were spread wide, beating every so often to keep her aloft as she flew towards a location that was semi-familiar to her. It wasn't terribly far from Canterlot, thankfully, but even still she needed the exercise. Being cooped up in a castle most of the time didn't often give her the chance or the reason to fly, and flying was one of her favorite things to do. It was.. freeing. All of her worries and stress were simply swept away. Princess Luna wasn't sure what she would do once she reached Ponyville, or if she would simply fly past it in favor of the Everfree Forest. Hopefully, around this time, there wouldn't be as many ponies on the streets with the onset of the setting sun; she didn't want to make a scene by suddenly dropping in. Even now, Luna knew how much the ponies favored the princesses for the crowns they wore and the protection they offered, almost to the point that a glimpse of them in public was enough to excite the citizens. Luna didn't want to get swarmed by them when she still had something of an aversion to crowds and the noise they brought with them. Her starry mane fluttered, streaming back from her head as she descended towards the steadily approaching country town, and the closer she got to it, the more she began to pick out more notable buildings outside of the tall Town Hall as her teal eyes searched for a quiet, empty street to touch down in. She wasn't sure if it would truly be empty, or who she might run into on this little, spur-of-the-moment visit to break outside of her repetitive schedule.
  24. It'd been a matter of some months of traveling south into Equestria on hoof before he found anything of interest. It would have been faster if there was another form of transportation, but Sombra had not yet learned of the train- he had only ever seen the odd tracks of wood and metal, crossed during part of his travels. Equestria, Sombra came to notice, was terribly bright and sunny, made up of great swaths of untouched wilderness with pockets of civilization. The first place he finally stumbled upon was a lively, sprawling town. The architecture of the buildings and the material that made them up looked entirely alien to Sombra's eyes, having only ever seen the Crystal Empire. Pale walls, wood trim, and yellow straw-thatched roofing. The ponies, on the other hoof, were nothing new; the only difference was that they didn't have the shine that the crystal ponies had. They were bright and pastel, but dull. Dull, like him. It might've been a nice change, if the mere sight of ponies hadn't set him on edge. It was after some quiet backpedaling that Sombra decided to skirt the edge of the town, wandering in between the scattered buildings and studying what he could see thus far without drawing attention to himself. Or so he believed. It was still, entirely possible that ponies had seen him, and some no doubt still saw him, lurking on the edges like a wolf watching a flock of sheep. For the first time in a very, very long time, King Sombra found himself at an utter loss of what to do. He was still weak. No throne, no crown, and no position of power. He couldn't take what he needed by force, and not in Equestria- if the royal sisters got wind that he still lived, they'd certainly come after him. The thought of being locked away again in some other manner of prison by their hooves filled him with fear, and he hated it. After Sombra had gotten to see a little of this town of ponies, he withdrew towards the dark forest that seemed to border part of it. Having no knowledge of what it was or its history, the only thing that he saw in it was temporary refuge. A place to linger until he had some sort of idea, some sort of plan, on how he would deal with entering this town. If anypony dared follow, he might not see them; he was too wrapped up in his own thoughts, for the moment.
  25. Ocellus was not a naturally brave changeling, but she was a friendly changeling, and to her that was well enough to start working on her shy personality. She was wondering around the streets of Ponyville, keeping near the School of Friendship so she didn't get lost in the winding streets. Currently she was relaxing near Sugar Cube Corner, just sat down on a bench in her changeling form, enjoying the warmth of the day, a few books open on the bench with her that she flicks through, enjoying the tales and stories that pony books had to offer. Her translucent pink 'mane' let the light shine through it, casting a few little pink beams of light on the bench in front of her as she reads, her similarly translucent wings flapping every so often to keep a cool breeze around her.
