  1. (Cloudfeather image coming soon...) Cloudfeather yawned as she punched her time card and removed her helmet from its hook. Why had she taken this shift again? Oh yeah. One of her friends was visiting family and asked her to cover for her. The things she did for her friends... She entered the large room where the water harvester operated and took in the sight. The huge, golden cylinder extended from the ceiling all the way through the floor. Pipes protruded at various angles and many levels, through which water was pumped to the labs for treatment before being turned into clouds. A large tank on the side prepared to receive any fish or other creatures that may be unfortunately sucked into the vortex so that they could be safely stored until they could be returned to their watery habitat. Cloudy wasn't as familiar with the harvester as she was with the actual cloud making machines, but she had fixed it enough times that she had a general idea of how it functioned. Plus, Cumulous had made her a checklist of operations for the day, so she was confident she would be able to manage. All that was left to do was wait for the signal to start the initiation sequence. Hovering by a window, she looked out over Mount Aris, one of the homes of the hippogriffs. They had requested some showers to help get their spring crops in gear, and management determined it was easier to just move the city to them than it was to ship boxes of storm clouds out that far. It didn't take long for the red lights around the room to come on, signaling that it was time to start the harvest. Cloudy sighed as she looked out over the seascape. The desalinators would be working extra hard today. She would probably have to fix at least one of them during her own shift. No bother. She yawned and put on her goggles, then took her position at the control panel, clipping the checklist to the dashboard so it would be easily accessible. "Alright, let's get you up and running." The machine gave a deep groan as it powered up, then began to whirr with ever switch she threw and button she pressed. Soon, the water was flowing from the sea, into the harvester, and through the pipes, which shook slightly as they received the flash flood. "Alright, now I just have to monitor the pressure and temperature levels! No big deal! Should be easy!" A few stray fish found their way into the collecting tank, looking disoriented but otherwise ok. They weren't Cloudy's concern, so she didn't pay them much attention. After the harvest, some other pegasi would deposit the tank back in the sea and they would continue with their lives. She watched the pressure meter hover in the green line for several minutes before the monotony of the task began to remind her how tired she was... It wasn't long until she rested her head on the dash and let her eyes slip shut...
  2. The clouds were bright and clean, fluffy and light, really it looked like the cloudaseum had been given a once-ver and then a second-over! Of course this was one of the biggest races of the year, with even the wonderbolts competing! "Fillies and Gentlecolts! Please make your ways to your seats, the race will begin momentarily!" said the announcer Behind the door in the ready room/showers stood a pegasus of a golden brown hue with dark mane and magenta eyes... oh it had taken hours and upon hours to dye her mane and tail those exact shades, and it seemed almost like a huge waste since it was temporary, but still it was worth it for this! How Twilight had managed this one she'd never know, but she was glad of it, and she knew all the little foals would be too! "Racers, Please make your way to the starting line!" The pegasus placed her safari hat on her head and slipped into her green jacked "ok, you can do this, your Daring Do, you can handle anything!" she said, heading on out the door "...And in the third slot, a Special Celebrity Guest, competing in the honor of the Ponyville Foals Hospital, to which any and all of her winnings will go, Miss Daring Do!" The pegasus Flew out, waving at all the foals and even pulled out a miniature replica of the famous sapphire statuette, which she then gave to a foal in a wheelchair "...And in the fourth slot, to defend the honor of the Wonderbolts, Soarin!" The familiar blue flightsuit obscured most of the stallion's body, but it was still quite recognizable and he had almost as many cheers as the last contender, though he seemed to have one small filly who was blowing raspberries at him and instead waving at contestant number 3... (Leaving an opening here in case anyone wants to join the race itself)
  3. [ Pony Related Character ] Name: Soarin' Sex: Male Age: Stallion Species: Pegasus Pelt Color: Light blue Mane/Tail Color & Style: Dark blue, windswept Eye Color: Green Cutie Mark: A lightning bolt splitting a storm cloud. Physique: Trim, athletic build Residence: Cloudsdale, but is often 'on the road' Occupation: Wonderbolt Character History: From a young age, Soarin always dreamed of flying hard and fast. When he was just a foal his parents took him to see one of their shows, and his eyes were WIDE open from the opening act to the thrilling conclusion. He grew up enamored with each generation of Wonderbolts, and always asked his parents to take him to their shows when they were in Cloudsdale, making a special point to see every show when their lineup or their repertoire had been expanded. In Junior Speedsters Camp he was always eager to show off, something that cost him more than one race to pegasi slower than him, but something none of the councilors could convince him not to do. Late in his last year of the camp, one of the Wonderbolts in that generation, Thunderwing, handed him a flyer for the Junior Wonderbolt camp that had been recently established. Where the speedster camp focused on fast, the Wonderbolt camp was all about -STYLE-. Soarin had style in spades, and was one of the star pupils in camp. He earned his cutie mark by performing a triple shoot-the loop with Thunderwing in his second year, which he calls his 'Best. Day. Ever.' to this day. When the time came to replace retiring members, Soarin was a natural choice because of his technical ability in the air, even if he was accident prone and downright clumsy with solid ground under his hooves. Character Personality: Soarin' is easy going and rather happy go lucky. He tends not to think things all the way through, but he's as dependable as you could ask for once he's agreed to something. Just don't expect things to go off without a hitch, because he's quite accident prone. He's usually quite ready to chat with complete strangers, fan or no, in part to get to know his fan base but mostly just because he enjoys idle conversation. Which is not to say he doesn't know how or when to be serious. The primary thing holding Soarin back is that he's not terribly inventive, so while he can easily do anything he wants to do in the air, he's not the one to turn to for new stunt ideas, and he tends to forget to eat in the lead up to a show, causing him to have a tremendous appetite afterward. He doesn't usually mind this too much, since it usually allows him to indulge guilt-free in a nice slice of pie. Character Summary: Work hard, play hard, try not to leave too many craters. This is Soarin's philosophy in a nutshell. A consummate entertainer, he's utterly devoted to his fans and to the Wonderbolts, and is one of the higher ranked non-REA 'bolts. He may be accident prone, and sometimes he misses the obvious, but he never lets anything keep him down for long, and is always willing to let bygones be bygones. If he pushed harder, he'd be a living legend, and he kind of lives up to the legend. In short, he's Soarin' of the Wonderbolts, and he will rock. Your. World. (Thanks for the image, Tales!)
  4. Vaporization Department: where clouds are born. In a space specially designed to retain heat, a good portion of the steamy rainbow liquid produced by PrismDep sits in rows of purple metallic vats. When cold water’s dumped into these boiling vats, huge gushes of steam blast forth in a fury of accelerated vaporization. As the steam collects near the skylight on the ceiling, workers make haste to condense it all using pegasi weather-magic into saturated clouds... the essential ingredient for rainfall. Clouds that are deemed safe and fit for use are sent off to TransportDev, which handles cloud distribution to all the weather teams. New workers in VaporDep must take numerous precautions if they don’t want to end up with workplace injuries. Not only can the room get quite hot and muggy, but improperly-condensed clouds might very well be capable of producing unauthorized lightning. Just as long as the volunteers read all the warning signs around the place and follow the instructions of their team leader, everything should be fine... right.....?
  5. "I told ya not to look down!" The balloon operator chortled as he watched a tan unicorn stallion reel back from the edge of the basket. He didn't often have passengers for this run, as most visitors to Cloudsdale were pegasi, and hence had no need for his services. Indeed, up until recently pegasi had been the only visitors to the factory town in the sky, but a recent magical discovery by the Twilight Sparkle had allowed for other ponies to traverse the cloudways of the floating city. Earth Writer had never met the newest princess himself, but he had other connections in the magical world. As a Canterlot reporter, he'd interviewed some members of a new magical guild on some technical points in a story he'd been working on, and had struck up an acquaintance with a few of the members. When he mentioned that he would like to one day visit Cloudsdale, one of them, Moonshield if he remembered right, had volunteered use of the spell, especially after he said that he wanted to visit a special somepony while he was there... He wasn't regretting his decision now, exactly; he just felt as if his head was about to lift off like the gasbag suspending him above the earth, and leave his stomach behind. Looking down hadn't helped, obviously. "No kidding." He muttered, taking a few deep breaths to steady himself. His arrival attracted some attention at the balloon's landing platform, as unicorn visits were a pretty rare occurrence. Bets were taken on how long he would hesitate before stepping on to the cloud surface; the winner was less than five seconds. After all, if a unicorn couldn't trust magic, where was he? *Halfway to the ground, probably.* After stepping out into the street, he took a slow walk through the center of town first, just in awe of the high and airy classical architecture. Almost nowhere else in Equestria could one see it in such quantity. Gradually, however, his enchanted hooves brought him towards one particular address. He hesitated before the door, re-adjusting his shirt and collar and checking on the bouquet he'd brought up from the surface. Satisfied with his presentation, he knocked on the door of Sugar Apple, his marefriend. In the interval before the door opened, he bounced on his hooves, nervous excitement coursing through him. The moment it did- "SURPRISE!"
  6. this is race roleplay in cloudsdale and just ask me if you want join just pm me ok.
  7. Charity work was always rewarding, and Prism Burst was more than happy to contribute! Be it bits or otherwise he was very diligent in his activism , especially in Cloudsdale his home turf! And this charity most certainly was worth it! It was a event to help underprivileged foals meet their heros and develop their dreams! A few Wonderbolts were attending and Prism was actually honored to have been asked to come as well, granted most questions he found were about his Element of Harmony bearing daughter! The day was winding down and he was feeling a little parched, as well as a little worn out from the constant barge of questions from doe eyed, eager fillies and colts, wanting to know about everything from how Rainbows worked, to how it felt to fly through a storm, it made him feel good inside to do such good work but boy was he tired.. Letting out a yawn as he stretched, popping his back and opening his wings, a brilliant display of feathers! "Hgnn"
  8. All clouds awaiting distribution sit tight in the Transportation Department, a storage area with one massive door between it and the wild blue yonder. When ready, the Weather Factory’s special courier service takes it upon themselves to ship the precious bundles of saturated water vapor off across all of Equestria. Only then do weather teams have access to the rainfall needed to douse their local communities. Anypony wishing to work in TransportDep won’t last long if they can fly over long distances. Great care also needs to be taken by couriers to prevent the elements of nature from wreaking havoc on their shipments. Just because the sky look clear doesn’t mean that volunteers can afford to be care-free about their duties.....
  9. Burning Rage sat outside the new building made for his flight school. With his other job being slow he decided to add a side thing he could do so he opened a flight school to help young Pegasi learn either how to fly or learn to fly better. It was situated on a cloud west of Cloudsdale with a small cloud bridge connecting the two. in the back of the building was a field and beyond that a beautiful open sky. in the field was a obstacle course made for flying. "Finally!" he says "I can now declare Burning Rage's Flight School for Young Pegasi OPEN!" Burning Rage plants a sign down with the name of the school and a Now Open sign "I hope a free flight School for the young flyers will be a great asset in their future." Burning Rage walks into his newly founded school where he had his slogan on a banner on the outside reading "A school for Future Wonderbolts and more!" This reflecting the quote his Ponyville friend had told him "There is no such thing as can't only won't. All ponies can do anything they set their mind to even become a Wonderbolt!" he repeats it to himself as he sits down in the chair
  10. By all accounts, the Prism Mixing Department is among the more awe-inspiring locales in the Royal Weather Factory. The actual turbine room where water is heated to the point of transforming into a nebulous colourful liquid is actually a small off-to-the-side area, but the outflow leads to a vast open chamber exposed to the blue sky in almost every direction. There, the prismatic liquid is allowed to flow into a series of five floating pools, where workers stir the outflow to give it the distinctive look of a beautiful rainbow. The final product collects at pools on the floor, where the liquid rainbow can be collected and stored for further use. Most of the pegasi who’ll come and work in PrismDep today are not skilled workers however. An undertrained and understaffed group of volunteers, it is their job to satisfy their demanding quotas and produce enough rainbows in time for the spring rains. Just as long as everypony makes sure to keep the rainbows flowing and remember not to expose themselves to the spicy liquid, they’ll stand a chance of fulfilling their all-vital tasks.....
  11. Slate grey skies. Clouds that threatened to burst at any second. Air so thin that even a stray breeze was welcome in the fight to stay aloft. Spitfire inhaled deeply. It was winter alright, her favorite time of the year. Back when she had been a filly, her father would always take her to see the Wonderbolts perform their winter show around this time. It was a special memory they shared year after year, and something the fiery pony held close to her heart. Back then, never had she dreamed that she'd be standing where she was now, upon the snowy training field where legends were born. Of course, life had a way of being surprising like that. The Wonderbolts captain was wearing her thick bomber jacket, the collar tugged tight against her neck to keep away the chill. Today was the day. The sign-ups had closed a week ago, and in thirty minutes or so she'd be seeing the first of them. Perhaps sooner, if there were overachievers in the group. For today, after all, was the first day of Wonderbolts Winter Training Camp. Sure, there were countless pegasi who would sign up just to see their favorite airborne heroes up close and personal, but those usually quit the first or second day. Truly, it was a camp to work hard and get fit like the flying team of Equestrian fame. Most winged ponies knew that chilly weather brought more difficulties than usually came with flight, but here they'd learn just how hard it could get. They'd sweat in this snow. They'd fight harder than they imagined. And a select few would be invited back in the spring for further training. That was the incentive anyway. Spitfire exhaled slowly, her breath a small cloud all its own in the stark weather. Hopefully one, maybe two of them would have the right stuff. It was always a fierce pleasure to see that kind of hustle in action, the kind of display that got her own blood burning and her wings itching to blaze through the freezing gales. "Let's do it," she said with a confident smirk, awaiting the arrival of the greenwings.
  12. FRENZIED FACTORY ZONE: OOC THREAD PLOT SNYPOSIS: Spring has descended onto the land of Equestria, and with spring comes rainfall; lots and lots of rainfall. To make such a large-scale operation possible, the mares and stallions of the Royal Weather Factory in Cloudsdale work tirelessly during the spring months to create the rain storms so coveted by ponykind. It is through the efforts of these pegasi factory workers that crops are sufficiently watered and reservoirs refilled in preparation for summer. Unfortunately this year, a major crisis has rocked the city in the clouds which could jeopardize the upcoming rainy season. Due to a sudden flu plaguing Cloudsdale, more than three-quarters of the Weather Factory’s workforce have been forced to stay at home, at precisely the time when their contributions are needed the most. If there are not enough pegasi to work the factory floor and deliver clouds on time, settlements all over Equestria could very well face crop-wrecking droughts! To forestall this alarming chain of events, the overseers of the Weather Factory have taken the drastic measure of recruiting any winged volunteers that can be found. Heralds and newspaper bulletins serenade Equestria in the hopes that enough pegasi and other creatures able to fly to Cloudsdale can come to help operate the weather factory. It doesn’t matter where these emergency volunteers come from, just as long as the spring rings can indeed proceed on schedule. High in the turbulent skies of Cloudsdale, failure is not an option..... -------------- SIGN-UPS: If you’d like to have your character (must be an adult) volunteer at the Weather Factory, please provide the following details: Name: Link to App: Desired Area to Volunteer At: Available factory departments to work at include Vaporization (turning harvested water into clouds), Prism-Mixing (rainbow creation), and Transportation (shipping rain clouds). Snowflake production will not be going on in this RP, as snow is out of season (sorry Snowdrop). If there are sections that are understaffed, I reserve the right to reassign your character to another department. While non-flying creatures typically can’t reach Cloudsdale, I’m willing to evaluate requests to insert such characters in this RP on a case-by-case basis. Additionally, I will appoint a character from each department to serve as volunteer supervisors, who’ll have the ability to manage their teams. As for the actual goal of this Weather Factory RP, I expect only two things. Fun... and mayhem. As I expect every character involved to not have weather factory experience, I expect all of you to do your part in making cloud production a complete mess. Of course, everypony will pull through in the end... but not without obstacles to overcome first, muahahaha!!!!! I hope that I get a good turnout for this thread. Feel free to give any suggestions as well if you think you have a cool idea. Seeing that hardly any Cloudsdale threads are out there, I urge anyone with a pegasus to sign-up for this RP! -------------- CHARACTER LISTING: Temporary Management (cannot be applied for): Princess Luna (in overall charge as she's a princess), Sugar Apple (as the sole healthy full-time supervisor, she'll be in charge of Orientation) Prism-Mixing: Prof. Clyde Krashkop (TEAM LEADER), Derpy Hooves, Spin Art, Snickerdoodle Vaporization: Col. Pummel (TEAM LEADER), Flitter, Cloudchaser, Misty Morning Transportation: Rainbow Dash (TEAM LEADER), Prism Burst, Sky Sailing, Sky Flare Mistral -------------- THREAD LISTING: [Cloudsdale] Frenzied Factory Zone: Opening Assembly *COMPLETED* [Cloudsdale] Frenzied Factory Zone: Prism Mixing Department [Cloudsdale] Frenzied Factory Zone: Vaporization Department [Cloudsdale] Frenzied Factory Zone: Transportation Department -------------- POST CYCLE RULES: Prism Mixing Department: you may reply once 2 other characters have posted.

  13. Prism was pretty exited for a day off! After stretching his muscles he crouched on the soft clouds, wings spread, a cocky smirk on his face, before LEAPING up and zipping off like a flash of light! Weaving and bobbing around the clouds with expertise! Leaving a trail of rainbow behind him as he did so, curling and twisting around the clouds, using the trail and his own body to shape the clouds to his will! After he was all done he landed and crossed his front hooves quite happily, He had made a image of Celestia in the clouds itself, perfectly framing the sun! He grinned and moved a hoof up to fix his mane... "Well ain't she a sight for sore eyes!" Glancing around he realized he was probably by himself and snickered, moving to trot somewhere to get a bite to eat! Maybe he'd find company today? Life was pretty lonely when your only child was the element of Loyalty and thus always busy..

[colour=#282828]It was another brand new day, and the sun was high, and all the birdys sung while the hay bacon fried merrily in it's skillet, Ginger was humming a merry tune to herself as she finished making her breakfast, which was quickly downed in one gulp. After eating she brushed her mane and slapped her hat on, brushed her teeth, and smiled her best smile at the mirror "Yep, yep yep, t'day is gonna be a good day for sure as shootin!" She fluttered her wings and headed down to the cafe part of her shop, perched on a big fluffy cloud near the weather factory![/colour] [colour=#282828]She hummed as the coffee pots started to perk, and she put in some fresh baked goods in the display case, whistling as the windows got open and all the resturant sparkling once she gave it a good cleaning!

  16. Spring has descended onto the land of Equestria, and with spring comes rainfall; lots and lots of rainfall.

High in the turbulent skies of Cloudsdale, failure is not an option..... -------------------- Sugar Apple partly wished she could have stayed in sick today... sick like nearly all the other workers today. As a reward for being the sole supervisor not bedridden with the flu, the purple mare had suddenly found herself in a rather unfortunate but necessary position: that of having to orientate all the new volunteers enlisting their services for the Royal Weather Factory in this great hour of need. Sugar was plenty used to overseeing a manageable group of employees in the Vaporization Department, but having to introduce so many volunteers to how to operate the Weather Factory was a different matter entirely. The good news though was that Sugar Apple had the willpower of the bravest soldier; hence she soon felt the confidence to perform this vital task bestowed upon her. And she wouldn’t be alone either; taking a peek behind her, the pegasus took note of the four other ponies who’d be helping her lead the others today. The dark blue alicorn needed no introduction; due to the gravity of this crisis, Princess Luna would oversee the proceedings at the factory today. Behind Luna stood the ponies who’d help lead each team: stern-old Colonel Pummel of the Royal Equestrian Army would fill in for Sugar herself over at VaporDep, the even-older Professor Krashkop would look after the volunteers assigned to manufacture rainbows, and the youthful ace-flyer Rainbow Dash of Ponyville renown would naturally ensure her team delivered rain clouds to their destinations in time. None of them have worked at a weather factory before by Sugar’s reckoning, but the higher-ups both in Cloudsdale and Canterlot felt these ponies would be the most effective leaders for the band of equally unskilled volunteer workers. Seeing that the assembled crowd of volunteer pegasi outside the front entrance of the large cloud-formed factory was of a sufficiently large size, Sugar Apple cleared her throat to get everypony’s attention first; [colour=#800080]“Ahem... uhhhh, howdy y’all fillies and gentlecolts; mah name’s Sugar Apple, and it’s mah jo- pleasure to orientate y’all about workin’ at th’ Royal Weather Factory hyar today.”[/colour] Pleased that she hadn’t made a blathering fool of herself so far, the purple mare pressed onwards; [colour=#800080]“First things first; ya’ can’t enter th’ factory eff yer not wearin’ a proper uniform...”[/colour] Sugar paused and pointed at her white jacket and hardhat, required clothing for all workers and visitors; [colour=#800080]“Eff ya’ forgot t’take a uniform, please head back over to th’ lady hoofin’ them out on yer way in. Everypony needs t’stay safe at all times, so git yer jackets an’ hardhats now please.”[/colour] Sugar Apple now waited a few moments for the stragglers to collect their uniforms; she saw one gray pegasus dash out of the crowd who obviously failed to get the necessary clothing. Hopefully, said pegasus only suffered a brief attention lapse and wouldn’t present a chronic problem. In about a minute or so, Sugar would continue on with Orientation.....
  17. Celestia's golden sun shone brightly in the wide blue sky above the city of Cloudsdale. It was an unseasonably warm Wednesday afternoon in the mid-fall, and Whirligig relished the sun's rays on her blue hair. She had just finished her shift in the weather factory - another long day in snowflake making. Winter was fast approaching, and crunch time for snowflakes was in full swing. Quite frankly, Whirligig was exhausted. Snowflakes were not her passion nor her special talent, but when life gives you lemons…Stretching her wings in the warm air felt wonderful after being cooped up inside the chilly production room all afternoon. She silently thanked whichever of the weather planners had arranged for this particular day as she slowly flew away from the employee exit of giant factory towards the centre of town. Cloudsdale was, to anypony unused to it, an impressive city. There were multiple streets on multiple levels and some areas weren't really even joined to the rest of city by clouds. The architecture of most edifices was dominated with high ceilings on the inside and tall, sturdy cloud pillars on the outside. And pretty much everything except for the ponies was white. To Whirligig, these sturdy structures were part of her daily flight to work and helped her to feel at home. Whirligig's apartment, the one she had grown up in and shared with her mother now, was in one of the crowded working-class districts of the city. But that wasn't where Whirligig was heading just yet. Tired as she was, it had been a few days since she had last let her mane down and spent time in the city centre socializing. Tonight she was determined to do just that to chase away the mid-week melancholy that always set-in on Wednesdays. None of her co-workers had wanted to come with her, and that was okay by her. There was always an opportunity to make new friends in the clouded city anyways. She made her way upwards to the main street. Here, there were shops, food stalls, theatres, some clubs and pubs and, on the corner, a large fenced-in playground. She loved strolling along Cloudsdale's main road. She trotted along slowly, gazing through windows at beautiful formal dresses she would never need nor wear as she passed, considered stopping in a café for a cappuccino, then again when she passed the ice cream bar. She tossed a few spare bits into a busker's open guitar case as she passed by, before stepping into the bakery and getting a coffee crème bun. Finally, she turned into the playground and took a seat on a park bench to eat her purchased treat. She watched with mild interest as a young filly pushed an even younger filly on the swing set, and two identical colts not far off were having a grand old time on the teeter-totter. A couple of young mares, presumably mothers of the young colts and fillies who had come from the schoolhouse around the corner, stood nearby chatting merrily about everything from their jobs to their children to local politics. It was a perfect day to be a Pegasus living in the City in the Sky. ​[colour=#b4b4b4]((OOC: I have no idea where I'm going with this; should be fun! ))[/colour]
  18. I'm not really sure what the policy on Necromancy is in this forum, but on many forums I've been a part of in the past it was a big no-no. So, nearly a year ago I made a pretty epic (in my opinion) premise for a RP in Cloudsdale. And then I vanished, others vanished and it died rather quickly. Perhaps with a bit more planning/organization as well as maybe some more input from others we could rework the same idea and start fresh? The thread is copy-pasta'd under the spoiler tag: My problem is I actually have no idea where I would want the thread to go - and really, the whole point of RP is to tell a story/idea by working together with others. If you have any ideas/want to join, just post here! ------------------------------------------ EDIT - April 17th Okay, I'm going to actually try to get this going. Even if you've already expressed your interest in this thread, please fill out the following form: [b]Name:[/b] [b]Species:[/b] [b]Brief physical description:[/b] [b]Brief bio:[/b] [b]Role to play in Celebrations[/b]: [b]Picture (optional):[/b] [spoiler][img=http://image.url.goes.here.png][/spoiler] An example of role to play in celebrations would be something like greeter (as Whirligig does in the post above), tour guide, entertainer (there will be musical events and shows running for three days), transport person (getting the ponies up to cloudsdale), Cloud-walk spellcaster (for more powerful unicorns), just a visitor, etc. If you think of anything else, feel free to put it in and just explain briefly what this would involve. You can use as many character as you like, just fill out a form for each one. You can play as cast members if you want to. Again, if you have any other ideas or issues that you would like to raise in this thread, please please please let me know. List of Participants: Whirligig (played by Jane) Stormwing (played by Jane)
  19. Whirligig had never been a strong flyer, but that didn't mean she didn't enjoy it. She was a Pegasus, flying was and always would be a part of her. The problem was, she sometimes didn't pay attention to the rest of the world when she flew. The wind rushing through her mane was exciting, so sometimes she just closed her eyes and flew...Ooof! She came into contact with something solid and instinctively flapped her wings to steady herself. It was a pony; a Stallion, and a very good-looking one at that. He was tall and sturdy, with a deep blue pelt and a ragged-looking grey mane. And he had piercing blue eyes that Whirligig met awkwardly. She instantly felt frazzled and embarrassed. "Oh, I'm so, so very sorry I didn't see you there. I was on my way home from work and just so happy to be out of the dingy factory and I wasn't watching where I was going. I-I suppose I'll get out of your way now." She fluttered awkwardly to the side to let the stallion pass. ​

    Weather Ponies

    Here's a bit on how I think the weather works in Equestria; feel free to comment if you feel like something doesn't quite fit with canon or if your ideas differ greatly from my own. I figure that managing the weather for a gigantic nation like Equestria is no easy task. It's probably a huge operation composed of many teams and departments, and it's mostly government funded. The centre of these operations is Cloudsdale, though Canterlot has some say in the operations as well. First of all, the Pegasi don't have to control the weather. In Aquellia, for example, the weather is left to its own devices as it is in the Everfree Forest. The clouds do form naturally and move at will. But the Pegasi can control the weather due to ancient magic and have been doing so since the days of the three tribes. It started out that they just pushed the naturally-formed clouds around, but they later developed methods to create the clouds themselves. Sometimes being a weather pony involves collecting and arranging clouds to form showers, but a lot of the time, it also involves clearing the clouds. Sometimes these clouds were made in Cloudsdale and have just escaped the storerooms, but a lot of the time these are stray natural clouds that have formed and cause problems. Pegasi have access to magic of their own: the magic that allows them to fly, for example, also affects the weather. They can use this magic to slow or speed up winds, raise and lower the temperature of the air, and cause or prevent thunderstorms, hurricanes and tornados. Because the forces of the weather can be dangerous, there are various levels of teams involved in the management of the weather. At the top, you have the meteorological engineers. These are Pegasi who are highly skilled in weather magic as a result of having a university degree in the study of the creation and formation of meteorological phenomena; both how it works naturally as well as what Pegasi can do to modify these natural behaviours. My OC, Whirligig, dreams of one day becoming a meteorological engineer. And then you have the various teams beneath them; field weather ponies. A university degree is not required to be a field weather pony, but an apprenticeship is. If the meteorological engineers are the architects and designers of the weather, these guys are the carpenters, electricians and other manual tradesponies who make the weather happen. They are often broken into teams and sent to towns all across Equestria. Each team has a supervisor who makes sure everything runs smoothly, as well as five or six ponies who form the team itself, though the size of the team varies based on demand. Ponyville's weather team is supervised by Rainbow Dash, but there are other Pegasi underneath her who also help out, as seen in look before you sleep and Hurricane Fluttershy. My OC Stormwing is a field weather pony for the town of Trottingham. Then you have the weather factory and its workers (as well as various levels of management within the factory. Obviously there are going to be some Metorological Engineers overseeing operations here as well, and then department managers and quality control). A lot of Equestria's weather starts life in the factory. Here clouds of all types are made in addition to Rainbows, Snowflakes and electrical systems. There is also a great deal of testing and research done in the factory in close association with the University of Cloudsdale. This research includes the formation and operation of tornados, as well as the containment of storm systems. In between the factory and the field teams, there are also delivery ponies who work with the factory. These are teams of Pegasi who 'carry' the weather systems created in Cloudsdale to all the towns in Equestria. Clouds are usually corralled and transported that way, with special measures taken when it comes to electrically active clouds. Rainbows are tinned and carried in this manner. When a rainbow is to be used, a field weather pony has only to open the can and pour the liquid rainbow across the sky. The story of Snowdrop fits in nicely - snow began life in the same way rain did. It wasn't until Snowdrop came along that hoof-made snowflakes were introduced to Equestria. Clouds are made in the usual manner, then infused with hoof-made snowflakes before being sent out to the rest of Equestria. I'm still trying to work on my wind theories. I've read a few fanfics where there was a tornado creation section in the weather factory, but Hurricane Fluttershy suggests that Tornados can easily be made in the field with a lot of wing power. I'm thinking maybe tornados are made in the factory and then, like rainbows, somehow transported to the rest of Equestria when needed. I don't think they'd be needed often though, except maybe to assist with moving water when ponies aren't keen on breaking records by doing it the old-fashioned way. Obviously the use of more dangerous elements would be heavily monitored. Cloudsdale itself doesn't have weather systems the same way the rest of Equestria does. They don't have gardens so they don't need precipitation the same way, so they like keeping their clouds in tact (I figure a lot of rain in Cloudsdale would damage the clouds the city is made out of. Cloudsdale does have its own team of weather ponies, but their sole responsibility is keeping the stray clouds out of the city.) Anyways, I just felt like sharing this. I'm not trying to create lore for the WoE, and I don't expect everypony to agree with me on this, but this system will probably be referenced by OCs in some of my RP posts. - Jane
  21. Equestrian mornings were always a thing of beauty. From grassy valley, across wheat-blanketed fields, sprawling apple orchards, and vast forest sweeps; from the lowest river plain to the highest mountaintop; from the expanses of the wild blue to the cloudy wisps at the dizzying reaches of the atmosphere, morning dawned. Fire kissed the horizon, a sultry red-orange glow that stretched its lucid rays across the earth, sea, sky, and aether. A lone pegasus gingerly closed the locker door, hoofing the lock into place and giving the dial a twist. A blast of hot breath escaped her nostrils as she stepped out of the locker room. Freshly awakened muscles twitched beneath goldenrod-yellow fur while a jet black mane and tail ruffled softly in the wind. Stepping into the soft orange glow outside, the mare stretched her wings to their full extent, revealing black pinion tips, contrasting starkly with her subdued fur and plumage. Sunrise was different from Cloudsdale. There was little dust or haze at altitude, allowing Sergeant Acclaim to enjoy a full unadulterated view of Celestia’s dawn. The sergeant was free of her usual regalia and appointments. No armor, saddle blankets, hoofguards, lances, tail or mane ties, or helms; only fur, feathers, and sinew. Acclaim smiled. This was was how a pegasus should live! The sergeant stretched her legs and wings, working each appendage through its full range of motion and limbering each muscle as she reached it. She was back in the Twin Cities of Cloudsdale and Trottingham for R&R to be sure, but you could never quite take the army life out of a soldier. Endless PT routines drilled into her head a fixed waking time at “the flank crack of dawn” as civilians would put it. So there she stood, her hooves on the outermost ring of Cloudsdale’s famous Cloudeseum, the sky above, the sunrise below, and horizon before her. Her warm up complete, Acclaim took a deep breath and leaped forward into the blue.
  22. ((So.. That titles pretty random.. If you have any better ones, please lemme know and I can change it in a heartbeat ^^)) That shop owner sure does talk a lot.. I wonder what this does, anyway? Star Storm asked herself in her head, glancing down at the freshly stolen potion in her bag. Lately the little pegasus has been running low on bits, and decided nabbing a potion or two to sell on the street might just be the solution, unfortunately, she could only get one. "Sure looks expensive, at least.." She looked up through a cloud just overhead to see the location of the sun. Phew, little while before dark.. Time to fly..? Star spread her wings, readying herself just before tripping over some nearby pony in her haste.. or, griffon, rather. Crack! One of her wings broke. "Ow! Kenny!" ((Ooc: She named her wings Kenny and Zero because they break a lot. Kenny is her right wing.. ;D))
  23. "What have I gotten myself into here?" the white pegasus mumbled as she stood there, waiting for her friend to arrive. It had all happened so fast, and all of the sudden she had had no choice but just go with it. She felt a little uncomfortable already, all alone in the middle of the entertainment district of that dreadful city. It all began a few days ago. Opal had been on her rare visits to Cloudsdale, because as much as she hated coming here, it was the only place she could get the ingredients she needed for her performances. By chance she had run into somepony she hadn't seen for months. It was Summerfall, one of the ponies that had worked in the weather factories during her time there. And even though Opal Shards wasn't too keen on remembering that dead end job, she had to concede that the breaks in the cafeteria hadn't been all that bad. So they had been talking for a while, and she had learned all kinds of things about Summerfall's career choices, and before she know what had happened, Opal had promised to go to that new club in town. And now she was here, waiting for the golden pegasus to arrive. Opal Shards stepped on the spot nervously. Her clothing selection was scarce at best. Luckily she had bought a summer dress fairly recently. It was milky white and fairly plain, but her build made her look elegant in most everything she wore. And she didn't want to attract too much attention anyway. 'Otherwise I could have worn my Shadowbolt uniform.' she though gloomily. She had opted for a pair of light sunglasses, too, to lessen the effect of her piercing, red eyes somewhat. And so she stood there, waiting to be picked up.
  24. "And now I sound like some kind of sappy, sentimental loser..." Awk-waaaard. If it -wasn't- a gryphon, Ignition might have decided to mock her a bit. But the thing about gryphons, the main things that kind of defined being a gryphon, were strength, talons, and a beak. And the thing about pegasi, the main defining characteristics of a pegasus, was that they are lightweight and kind of easy to break. The latter should not, in fact, make a point of unduly aggrivating the former, for the math simply does not favour those of the latter party. So, she tried to transition the subject, with a little sympathy thrown in. "Well, hay, it's not like you're a loser just because you don't ignore your own feelings forever, they're just a part of being alive. I mean, have you met Alice Hoofer? Dude might be the überpferd of heavy metal, but off-stage, the dude is zen." Of course, changing topics, or even excersizing tact, weren't things that Ignition usually did. Did the gryphon even like Alice Hoofer? Seriously, who didn't like "School's Out"?
  25. A cold spring breeze ruffled the white mare's feathers as she flew over the clouds of Cloudsdale, her saddlebags filled with herbs and roots. It had been a long day, and the local herbalists seemed to have worse selections every time. It was a blessing that as a Shadowbolt, she could finally afford all the ingredients she needed for her more ambitious experiments. Opal Shards despised visiting Cloudsdale. It carried all kinds of bad memories. Her time in the weather factory, her tiny room, and not least her miserable failure at the Wonderbolt tryouts. She preferred not to think about it. As she flew over the entertainment district, she spotted, much to her surprise, someone she actually knew, and didn't resend from the bottom of her heart. She floated down to him elegantly, clearing her throat to get his attention: "If it isn't Gale.." She began, smiling thinly but genuinely "..haven't seen your glasses in a while." She shuffled her wings, folding them neatly on her back. "Still part of that flight team.. what was it called again?" She gave a little chuckle.
