  1. Stormstride looked at the paper in her hooves. She was reading over a notice posted in the paper about someone seeking magic training for combat purposes. She looked at the listing a bit longer before picking up her armor and strapping it on. As she set her sword on her back in the latch, she checked her helmet. Hooking it to her armor, she started out the tent. As she passed her brother, she told him she was going to look into a job listing and check on the pay. Looking at the paper one last time, she noted the address and closed her eyes. She couldn't land exactly at it, but she could get close. At least on the same street. As she let her magic take hold, she felt the world around her ripple. Teleportation was different for every unicorn. Some felt strange, others felt nothing at all. Some if felt like ages, while others said it was instantaneous. Stormstride had always felt like the world around her became muddy water, and cleared up slowly. As she reappeared roughly two block away from the address listed, she took a breath and looked around. Canterlot, one of her least favorite places. Mostly because it was the seat of power for Equestria. As she moved toward the address, she noticed many ponies and a few guards looking at her like she was some kind of monster. Many moved in a hurry to get out of her way, while others just stared, dumbstruck by the sight of such a heavily muscled and armored mare. Her armor looked evil, and the katana on her back looked....monstrous. It looked like a blade designed to cleave a pony in half. None could guess how she would wield such a blade. As she approached the door, she straightened up and tried to push her long mane back into a pony tail with magic. once she was satisfied that it was tied back properly, she took a breath. Reaching a metal clad hoof up, she knocked. The knock was firm, like someone punched the door with some force. Waiting a moment, she took a moment to collect her thoughts.
  2. @IceStorm @SteelEagle Magic was -- a lot like music. If Octavia was let to explain the experience she had behind the cello it was hauntingly reminiscent of how a wizard felt when threading around existence with his control over the aether. Each experience was unique and different, but one thing all those could tell you that was always the same: is that there was nothing in the world like it. Power was an illusion and one had to measure up to constantly growing forces of opposition. That was why one always had to practice their song. To sustain a harmony in one's some meant abandoning all idea that you were superior. To play music meant you had to succumb to the force that was the melody. And just like music, magic had to be played with the heart, or risk creating cacophony. How contradicting. Perhaps that what had drawn the spirit near, or the coincidence of his friend in Canterlot. Whatever had drawn him he had become enraptured with the new toy in the ice mare’s possession. He floated around her, moving to attempt the object and levitate it over the palm.of his paw. The chimeric snake tittered as he pressed his face close, the stone's facets distorting his reflection. Sliding his tongue out playfully he smooshed his face against its surface only to be bit by a surge of magic. He snorted and shook his head, releasing the object as his paw and claw came to cover his snout, his mane puffed out in an afro from the static shock. “Honestly, Squall has the most curious things.” He held out his claws, manifesting a comb to tug back his mane. With a sproing the do returned to it's short and stiff standing. He tucked the comb into his feathers and floated down to the ground until he was on his haunches. While Canterlot was the center of Equestria’s magical education, he was still impressed by the unique things to come to pass through. He turned his gaze to Icy and grinned widely. “Oh come now. What use do you have of something so impractical? I'll trade you a bar of chocolate for it.” He held out a small bar in foil. “And if that's not enough, how about more?!” He held out his paws only for the tiny bar to poof into a jumbo size twice the size of the mare. He peeked over it, smirking. But if Discord wanted fit must have some merit in terms of magic and power.
  3. Those of Ponyville that had been caught amidst the game to participate would find that their powers or natural talents have been reversed and to those fallen into the game would receive a set of instructions to find Discord and retrieve a scavenger hunt list. Finding their items and using them properly would return their magic and talents and earn them a grand prize, courtesy of the god of chaos. Over their cutie marks a big red X would be plastered on their flank and they would be provided with a saddlebag to carry the collected objects. Discord was lounged over the portal on his throne, perfectly between Canterlot and Ponyville, sipping jello out of a coconut with a tiny drink umbrella in his eyebrows.
  4. Stormstride watched as she walked beside her brother. Of all the places she did not want to come, this had to be the top of the list. Canterlot itself, seat of Equestrian power and home to no less than two princesses at any given time. This place was a magnet for all things she disliked. The mare wore her armor, though her helmet hung from a hook on her sash. The heavy clack of her metal clad hooves on the cobblestone street echoed softly as she watched. Her mane glittering in the sun, the silver hair blowing lightly in the breeze as they passed by vendor stalls and shop fronts. They needed a place to park their cart. She was searching for an Inn or a hotel. As she was looking, Buck trotted along quite happily as he pulled the cart. His large stature letting him see over the tops of most of the crowd and his cheerful smile offset the rather irritated demeanor of his sister. He greeted every pony he passed with a cheerful tone and a bright look upon his countenance. While he wore no armor, the stallion was wearing saddle bags and the hitch for the large cart. He walked on a powerful set of legs, displaying the fact he was used to manual labor. Though when he spoke it was with a slight accent. "Sister, smile. We are only here for a few days! There are so many places to see! new foods and music for us to try, and a chance for us to catch up on the news we missed these thirteen years!" He gave a light skip, lifting the front of the cart up an inch as he did. Chuckling he watched her roll her eyes before finally smiling at him. She could never keep a scowl on her face with her brother around. The pair walked until they spotted a hotel. Pulling up front, Buck looked for a place to park their cart while Stormstride walked inside. Buck finally found a spot just across the street. It was an empty lot, with a few carts in it, but it was right beside a school. Buck figured it was for public use, because he did not see a sign stating otherwise. As he moved the cart into position, he paused to look up at the school. IT was really no different than the school he attended when he lived here in Equestria all those years ago. Though it was larger and likely better equipped than his school had been. Smiling to himself he unhitched form the cart, moved to the back and lowered the gate. Sitting himself on the edge, he pulled a an acoustic guitar from the stack. As he strummed over it, he began to smile brighter. His hooves danced over the strings, coaxing out a rather happy melody as he hummed at first. Then he began to sing, and his deep, soothing voice lifted into the air with a crisp loudness that was audible over the city sounds around him. He could already hear a few ponies talking and looking his direction. Which was fine, he wasn't hurting anything and always loved an audience. In the hotel, Stormstride turned an ear to the door as she heard her brother begin playing. Though she was focused on the clerk behind the counter and trying to work out how many days they were going to stay. Stormstride was also inquiring about local places to eat, purchase supplies, and the like. She would need work done on her armor soon, and would need to restock her supplies for caring for her weapons and armor. As the Clerk was trying to think while he registered their room, Stormstride just set the bits on the counter for him to take. She expressed that she needed to run an errand very shortly and would return within an hour to pick up the room keys for herself and her sibling. The clerk nodded and eyed the stack of coins rather happily. Stormstride stepped out and crossed the street to the cart where her brother was playing. She smiled brightly, always loving to hear him play. It was especially so when he sang like that, so full of life and energy. He could coax the sweetest notes from any instrument he picked up and that old guitar was his favorite. She had seen him work it over so well, and his hooves danced over the strings like a ballerina. She could hear other ponies coming to them now and moved to the side of the cart. She tossed out the hat that Buck set out to collect bits. Then she returned to tapping her hooves along with the tune. (OOC: This is the song he is playing. He isn't playing multiple instruments at once, just playing the piano parts on the guitar https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BNRVm2tEL3A&t=0s&index=5&list=PLeW50pl1e2-u3aTDaPSrH3tOyB97CivH6 )
  5. This thread would be set in and around Appleloosa, and would be centered around Thunderbuck and Stormstride rolling into town with a recent caravan. Both are looking for temp work, and have a wide range of skills outside their primary talents. As well it would introduce some of their personality quarks and and a better back history for the pair. It also explains a few bits about their nature as vagrants and their choice in living outside the norms of most pony society. No combat in this thread, but deep discussions between characters are welcome. MLP Cast characters are welcome in context to the area and situation. Such as AJ visiting her family or the mane six coming to check on the peace between the buffalo and pony kind. The main theme here is social interaction and getting to know each other.
  6. Firestorm was a gentlecolt of many tastes. One of those tastes was collecting and studying magical artifacts. Not for the purpose of preservation or understanding, though he did turn over his notes to the local magical schools when he made significant finds. No, his interests were more for the expense of a prank at one of his many parties. Firestorm loved hosting parties and gatherings. He loved social gatherings of any kind. He hand a hoof in many things as it were, and loved to bring the nobility and social elite back into touch with the common ponies. He oft hosted parties for any pony he felt deserved them. And the purpose of his studies was to use the magical items as a sort of party joke or game. To which end, his parties were often riots. It was today that he was once more working his personal lab, though the door to the balcony was always left open. He was a lively old stallion. He loved visitors. And always made certain that any pony or other being that thought to stop by was more than welcome. His minimal staff were more like friends to him. His lush garden full of vibrant colors and signs telling ponies to help themselves to any flowers they wanted. He oft cast a look outside to see if somepony was coming. He was tinkering with an amulet today. He did not know what magical properties it had. Aside from the fact it practically radiated magic. His first bit of research was being conducted to determine exactly where and when it came from. When was it created, where was it created, and most importantly, why was it created? Those first three questions were always answered before he began other research. So far he had the when, and where. Though it was vague at best. The amulet was roughly 300 years old, and had come from a ruin located in the mountains outside Canterlot. He had bought it from a traveler, when he detected its magical properties. The traveler was an Earth Pony, and had no sense to tell what it was. Determining that the traveler was a ruin diver, he got him to tell where it came from and mark it on a map. Though at best guess Firestorm figured the pony had been a little less than completely truthful. After all, no pony wanted to give up their treasures that easily. Firestorm took a moment to sit back in his desk chair, spinning idly as he chuckled to himself, thinking up what possibilities it could be. The amulet was a mystery he wanted to solve, but in time. His research so far determined that it was for a noted pony that once lived in that area. But he could not find something as to why.
  7. The Night Courts of Canterlot were an unusual place indeed. These proceedings were more subdued, calm, and held a certain peacefulness that made Stormstride feel more at ease. Though given her escort, the minor noble was likely one of the few ponies feeling at ease. Nobility often had their own private honor guard, which was nothing new. What did appear to be new was the fact that Stormstride's Honor Guard were wearing armor made of a black, non-reflective metal, and adorned with antlers, horns, and what looked likes claws and fangs of dangerous and wild beasts. There were even a few dragon claws attached to the helm of what was her captain. They were quiet, but their faces were hidden behind full helmets, their full bodies covered in chainmail, furs, pelts, leathers, and plated armor that made them look like walking amalgamations of monstrous magically crafted metal golems and wild animals combined. Clashing with that was the mare herself, in a simple white satin toga and golden crown made in the shape of lightning. Maretonian nobility by style and design, and the way she carried herself as well denoted that same are that Maretonian Unicorns carried. The self importance and pompousness many of them had was there, but to a much less degree. The only thing about her that stood out as strange were the shoes on her hooves. One could see the gleaming silver metal, and the mounting screws driven into her hooves, permanently mounting those shoes to her. On her neck hung a simple silver charm, cast with the family crest of her house. The mare's emerald green eyes stood apart from her mottled gray and dark gray mane. The silvery streaks blending in her mane twisted with the dark rolling grays, creating the look that her mane, tail and coat were made of rolling storm clouds, and beset with two gems for eyes. The deep and long scars on her chest, left cheek, and left front leg were visible. This mare was no stranger to combat. However it seemed she came not to pick a fight. Instead when it was her turn to speak she came forward, produced a scroll with her credential and then spoke in a tone of both respect and dignity. "Your highness, Princess Luna. I have come before you to request your advice and assistance on a matter dear to my family and our home. As many here are aware, I, Stormstride Cloud am not within good standing within Equestria. That being said, I hope that that will not taint the request I wish to place before you. My daughter has..." She paused, to glance around as if checking to see who was watching before continuing. "My daughter has stopped dreaming. In fact she has not had a dream in many years. I have tried my own magic to help, and sought the help of others in my own lands. However, this is something that we can not understand, nor can we treat. This lack of dreams has brought my daughter a lot of anguish as of late. She is of the age she wants to attend a more focused school. Centering around her talent in cooking. She has several selected here in Equestria and a few in Maretonia. But she has become depressed because she is very different." Stormstride took a step closer, and spoke in a whisper, "Please. I know Your sister loaths ponies like myself, but do not hold it against a filly barely out of her foalhood years. She's already deaf. She shouldn't have to suffer this too." Despite the looks and jeers of a few of the Canterlot nobility that knew of Stormstride's reputation and her previous deeds or misdeeds as they would refer to them, the mare before Luna was sincere in her request. She did not make a show, but she was almost begging for help. This was in honesty a mother seeking help for their child. And so it seemed Stormstride had no other choice but to come to Equestria to seek help.
  8. Since most of my threads are winding down, I figure I have place on my plate for one new one. I look at this one more toward the underbelly of what most of us think of in the world of MLP. The secret backroom deals of political rivals to keep things going in their own favor; while keeping the common pony as in the dark as possible. I am also a romanticizing player that loves a good old fashioned Mafia Novel. Gangster ponies with fast carts and quicker tongue outrunning the law with stolen goods; fully suited and dressed up true gangsters that front their activities in proper tax paying businesses and fly low under the radar of the detectives pursuing them. To that end, I want to make a thread that includes politicians, nobility, crime ponies, common ponies duped into running errands without a clue about their true nature; and a long assortment of other crime genre related Dick Tracy style things. Are there any players interested in this sort of thing? I would like to make it a long running series of RPs that are fast paced, and active with a post a day sort of mentality.
  9. The stallion had paced his hooves up and down the halls of his manor for hours. Firestorm was impatient, but that was to be expected when the matter at hoof involved his son. When all three ponies were gathered, he spoke all he knew. Flashfire was a former REA commander, having been demoted, he resigned and walked away from the REA. That was something Firestorm could understand from his son. The REA had been his son's entire life work. His whole youth had been invested into it. Building a career that would have been his lasting mark up on the world after he was gone. But with demotion, Flashfire had felt himself a failure and sought seclusion from all Equestria. That too, was expected by Firestorm, the father. However what was not expected was the utter disappearance of Flashfire. It was almost impossible for any pony to vanish into thin air like that. No paper trail, no travel documentation. Not even sightings. All but a few personal belongings had just been delivered to the father's residence. This distressed Firestorm greatly, but he wanted to respect his son's wishes to be left in peace. He had not filed a report until a letter arrived. The letter was from Flashfire. It was a simple note. "Need reinforcements. Small detachment to the following location." The note contained coordinates of the location, but the maps of the desert area showed no towns there. Firestorm assumed Flashfire had run into hostile forces of unknown kind and become trapped. The letter had been delivered through magical means, which meant Flashfire did not have the ability to use his magic to transport himself away. Firestorm, a retired REA member himself had moved before the royal courts for help, as he had no power in the military any more. Now with the three ponies before him, he had laid out a map for them. Showing the exact location. No town or settlement located in that part of the frontier. Just empty desert and unexplored canyons. Even his friends in the REA had no idea what was there. The desert was hostile at the best of times. But that area was very hot and mostly loose sand and rock. no soil to grow crops in that was known of. After paying for supplies and arranging for the group to have additionally funding, Firestorm had only asked them one thing, to ensure their son's safety. He knew nothing of if they had any other orders from the REA for retrieval. He gave them a photo of Flashfire. The proud REA commander in full armor standing beside Firestorm. Flashfire's face was stern, like the look was permanently stuck on his lips. The photo was dated to a year prior, the most recent of all pictures of the commander in question. Firestorm's parting words as they left ere simple. "Please save my son." As the Train arrived in Appaloosa, there was a cart of supplies waiting for them guarded by two armored ponies. It was the covered kind of cart, providing it's own shelter for the users. It was stocked inside with what appeared to be large barrels of water and an ample supply of food as well as a few other basics. The guards were standing by the cart, reading what appeared to be the newspaper. The sign on the side of the cart had the primary REA symbol, as well as a notice with their names tacked to it.
  10. From the album: The Character Corner (Color!)

    Made some new art of bevel since she's been loosening up a bit thanks to some new influences. As of now she's working on some new projects that could be useful to more than a few people. A certain stallion who makes use of her creations may soon find himself being asked to assist her in the testing of one of her newest gadgets. Let's hope this stallion won't be too busy on his honeymoon. ;)
  11. Since my other threads have died I wanted to work on an idea I have had for a while. One of my characters has a curse on him. Every night he becomes a batpony, though he only seeks fruit to eat. I was thinking of a thread where he is mistaken for a threat by the ponies in the mustang lands and they send out for other ponies to come capture this menace. I have one player interested already. I just need one more. Any one wanna join?
  12. Bramble Rose pounded in the last stake and stepped back in satisfaction, looking up at the large tent. It was a pale tan color, with a central pole and four corner poles, all the bits of fabric nailed down to the rough ground. This was going to be his home for the next few months! Sure, it was a bit basic, but in the back of his mind, it was something more. Rising ghostlike behind the tent, in his imagination, was the Bramble Rose Environmental Research Institute. A modern structure, full of beautiful plants and white walls and clean rooms and dedicated towards better understanding how all different sorts of natural magic flowed together. Ah, it was a dream. A dream years and years in the future. But this was the first step: An honest-to-goodness research grant, and research site. To his right was the normal rolling fields and wooded copses of the landscape around Ponyville. To his left ... the torn-up, blasted and bare dirt and rock left barren by the fight between Tirac and Princess Twilight, the unimaginable levels of magic involved having devastated the area. It was a dream come true. Princess Twilight had generously granted them a huge pile of bits, all for scientific research on the Tirek's Waste! For his scientific research! Admittedly, he'd also gone through some ... rather harrowing and embarrassing situations for the princess, but it was all worth it for this moment. He'd met some interesting scientifically minded ponies through Ingrid Marie, and had brought in a few more from his contacts in the University of Canterlot, and he'd even been able to bring along a research assistant in his friend, Flitter, from Ponyville! His happily dating another mare friend, Flitter, with whom it would be extremely inappropriate to flirt. His memory shied away from the embarrassment he'd suffered at realizing that misunderstanding. Anyway! He turned to face the assembled ponies, smoothing over the olive vest full of useful pockets, taking off the broad-brimmed hat that protected him from the sun. Half of the ponies he was looking to were the scientists and researchers of various fields he'd been able to gather to help him in this amazing opportunity. "Filles and gentlecolts! I declare this research site open ... for SCIENCE!" He got a brief, blazing flare of excitement in his eyes, and was unable to keep his grin from getting just a little *too* wide. Then he settled down, and turned to the other half of ponies assembled. The nice delivery ponies who were helping all the scientists with their gear. "Yes, thank you so much for waiting. If you could just start moving the crates and boxes carefully into the tents? that would be wonderful. They should each have a number on them, yes, we hung the numbers on the tents." He passed off a few bits to the forepony as a tip. "And if you wanted to open that crate in front there, first? That'll be some nice cold ciders for your workers to enjoy. Dry and thirsty work, carrying crates in this sort of weather!"
  13. Thunderbuck had taken his cart into town now. His niece peeking out of the open window up front. She was calm, watching the various other ponies walk past. Buck pulled the cart alone, his magic making it lighter and rolling on its own. As he came to an empty spot, he parked the cart and unhitched himself. CaramelCream busied herself inside with finding a few things. The coin case they used to collect anything the ponies offered. her basket, which she normally sold backed goods from. Though at the moment it was empty. She looked around and spotted the coin pouch Buck had for buying supplies. Picking it up in her magic she pulled her basket in her teeth and slipped out the back. She was headed for the town center. She was intent on buying supplies for the two of them for a few days. She wondered how successful her uncle would be here. This town didnt seem to have any performers standing around yet. But maybe they came at a different time of day. If that was the case, uncle Buck would have the town to himself for at least a little while. Thunderbuck was in the cart, looking at the by laws of Ponyville, He had left the side windows open in the event some pony wandered up. he did offer instrument repair as well as street music. The posters on the side listed his prices. As he was looking over the laws to see if he needed a license to perform here in Ponyville, he paused to look up toward where Caramel was walking. This town was peaceful and the foal was old enough to use her magic if she needed. He had taught her how to teleport if she needed it. But it was just one of the few spells she had. She was learning the lightning magic that was common to their family. At least she need not worry about bullies with that in her saddle bags.
  14. "Just calm down pressy... you can do this." The mare stared at her canvas, her intense stare looking like it could burn a whole through it. Her paintbrush engulfed in her magical aura was slowly lowered down on to her canvas and slowly made a few movements and was then set down. The cream colored unicorn glared at the canvas, inpsecting the image she'd put upon it thoroughly before she grit her teeth and shouted almost loud enough for the entire block in Canterlot to hear... "ABSOLUTELY, BLOODY USELESS!" Followed by a canvas being launched from a window into a street where it nearly collided with a Mime performing for the crowd. Thankfully nopony was injured and the freckled mare who threw it cried out, "Sorry! I'll clean that up in a sec!" The spellbound headquarters was empty save for Pressy's little art nook where a sleeping fruit bat was hanging from one of the rafters above. Ice storm was out on a date, Moondancer was out on some mission for the guild, with her coltfriend of course... And here I am on my lonesome, this stinks. Thought the now thoroughly irritated mare, she sighed and made her way down to the hall, such a big space... it was a shame to see it so empty of ponies after that splendid open house. The Mare galloped out and quickly gathered up the wreckage of her canvas, tossing a few bits the mime's way as a form of apology before pushing the pile of former artwork to the trash area and then going back into the hall to try and ease her nerves. "I miss Java..." she said to herself before sighing deeply and looking up at the celing and imagining the sky past it, the stallion was currently busy with his airship and she didn't want to get in the way of his passion... but more importantly she didn't want to expose him to herself when she was stressed out by repeated artistic 'failures' in her mind. So instead, Pressy put on one some music to calm herself down. She put on something a certain hippy pony might enjoy and began to enjoy herself as she let the music flow through her, she spun and, twirled, kicked, and dli her way across the hall a smile eventually working it's way over her face as she felt her worries flying away from her mind.
  15. "Okay.... So... Tables moved and out of the way, check... Counter and serving tables set up, check..." Ice Storm began to list off as she started moving from point to point, making sure the Hors d'œuvres that she had already provided where neatly arragned, although she had the more delicate ones sitting in block of ice. They were tiny little chocolates with a variety of different ice creams inside of them. Of everything that she had made for the Gala tonight, these had been the most time consuming because the chocolate had to be at the perfect temperature to where she wouldn't melt the ice cream or harden the chocolate too fast. Even with her affinity towards ice magic this proved to be quite the challenge for her. she quickly popped one of the strawberry ones into her mouth to make sure once again that they were the right consistency. "Mmm. Tasty treats, check!" she continued as she looked at the time. It was nearly sun-down, the Gala would be starting soon. With what small amount of time before she had left, she went upstairs and slipped into her favorite white dress that she had just gotten replaced by Rarity not so much as a week ago. It was satin white, and fit her quite elegantly as the crest was embedded with frosted topaz, and had more of the frosted gem running along each hem of the dress with what looked like a small gust of wind sewn into the pattern, almost making it look like it was blowing small bits of ice around her. She also affixed two blue topaz earrings and another small piece of topaz in her mane, just above her ear before finishing her ponytail with a similarly designed hair tie. For a mare that despised nobility, she could easily look the part without question. It was just another perk of how successful her store had become. Without wasting anymore time ogling herself in the mirror, she made her way back down into where her shop was and saw that it was it was about an hour before the Gala was set to start. This meant that ponies would probably be arriving any moment now to get set up and to see feel out whom else was going to be here. Ice Storm quickly put on a smile. She thought back to how only a few years ago, she had struggled to find a footing, and now, with a few friends, and just a little bit of help, things has quickly turned around and now, she was hosting her own Gala!!! Granted, it was the gala for her guild, but they picked her to host it!! She was more than a bit excited and she wanted to make sure that everypony enjoyed themselves tonight. Tonight was going to be a very special night, and she would make sure that it would be no other way. With a deep breath, she opened the door to the outside, where it was a quite comfortable temperature, and looked into the stars and the moon that was making it's way into the sky, giving a small inward thank you at the guidance that she had received from not just the moon, but from the pony behind it as well. She gently stepped outside, and her dress shimmered in the moonlight as she waited for her guests to arrive.
  16. From the album: Scythe Chronicles

    Typically the term is "Hats Off!" but Umekile wears both a cloak and a hat and each one is synonymous to him. So I went with the bigger item of the two. ===== His long mane falls slack and his right hooves dig unto the firm earth. The air pressure dropping around him whilst a powerful surge builds within him. His wonderful, gold-lined cloaks flutter to the earth; Hat's off my friends. The sorcerer has had enough. In the blink of an eye there is silence followed by a bright, flashing light; a beam streaks through the arrow followed by the rattling CRACKOOM!!
  17. MOONDANCER: A COMMENTARY BY BELLOSH101 It always seems like forever since the last blog article these days. It’s been months since the last blog post, character commentary writeup or otherwise. Well sit back and enjoy the ride folks, because this one today might take a while. A looong while..... [/cackle] (Image drawn by LoopEnd) Development Process: First things first, we’ll need a history lesson. You see, Moondancer is technically NOT an original character, for she was born from the depths of MLP Generation 1. She was around to be glimpsed in the Rescue at Midnight Castle special, but otherwise didn’t have that big of a role to play. The Moondancer I use today uses a G4ized variant of the original, which is pretty much unchanged save for getting rid of the bow on the ponytail (G1 ponies seemed to love those bows) and simplifying her cutie mark. So why care about this random G1 pony? Because FiM’s writers did, for they name-dropped her twice within “Friendship is Magic, Part 1” during the first scenes. However we never actually saw Moondancer during the episode, and without an official design, the Canterlot staff for technical reasons had to declare my pony as an original character instead of a cast pony. Hence, why Moony is not Tier 3 even though I originally planned her to be one. As for why I applied for this mystery mare? Well, let’s consider the following canon facts: Princess Celestia runs a magic school for gifted unicorns. Spike and a number of Twilight’s acquaintances had plans to attend a party for Moondancer and bring her presents. The fact that ponies wanted to do the above for Moondancer meant she had to be pretty well-liked. Ponies who knew Twilight by name and were around her age probably wouldn’t know of Twi unless they belonged to the same student body. Throughout the series, stars and crescent moons have always served as symbols of magic. They appear on clothing worn by Starswirl the Bearded and Trixie, on Twilight’s blankets, and on Moondancer’s cutie mark. Of course, maybe all four love just happen to love astronomy too. XD I’ll be on the level with you folks: I think unicorn magic is cool. Twilight Sparkle is my favorite pony partially for that reason. Moondancer wasn’t the first of my spellcasting ponies however; that honor belongs to Ingrid Marie. But since Ingrid is more of an instructor, I wanted someone who was still a student… somepony highly skilled in magic who still had most of the unknown journey of life ahead of them. Since Twilight during late 2012 was a character that was barely seen in RP, I felt having a “magical girl” character of some sort active in WoE was very important. Indeed, Moondancer might be justifiably explained as a type of anti-Twilight, although completely unlike other anti-Twilights like Trixie and Sunset Shimmer. Instead of being a shut-in, Moony was out making friends for as far as she could remember. While she is still very gifted in magic, Moony never achieved Twi’s level because Moony didn’t want to become a permanent studying machine like the other unicorn. I did my absolute best to keep Moondancer from appearing overpowered, although I could’t resist making her skilled in teleportation. Twi’s warp dance during her Failure Song looked really pretty, so I wanted Moony to do so on a semi-regular basis as a dance… something that made sense for somepony named MoonDANCER. I also wanted this mare to be among my quirkier characters too, but she’s kinda lost a bit of her initial goofiness ever since I’ve won Derpy. (Image drawn by BrainedBySaucepans) Moondancer is by far my most happy-go-lucky and extroverted “OC” I have, which has made her quite more versatile than I ever anticipated. Versatility is an important quality to have for “plain ponies”; essentially, characters fitting the background filler mold embodied by such favorites like Derpy Hooves (I’ll write about her one day) and Vinyl Scratch. Most OCs you’ll ever see on Canterlot look like and act like background fillers; they’re visually designed to blend into the crowd and they don’t really serve any gameplay function but to exist, live run-of-the-mill lives, and maybe liven things up a little if they’re that sort of character (*cough* Derpy). I’ve since fallen out of the habit of designing background filler OCs, my philosophies on which I’ve documented more in detail in one of my older articles. However, I’m proud to say that of those ponies, Moondancer is by far my favorite to use in roleplay. For one thing, I was able to successfully establish her already having a number of pre-existing friends out there in the WoE universe, saving me the trouble of “grinding” through banal meet-and-greet scenarios in order to acquire friends for Moony. And there’s also magic to consider; I love RPs that explore the use of magic whether they’re slice-of-life or adventure threads, and since Moondancer can cast spells and all, well… that makes her RPs all the more awesome for me. On the whole, I’ve gotten great mileage out of Moondancer and much fun from playing her. Much of what I’ve wanted to do with her has already been accomplished or is in the process of being acted out in RP. But her tale is far from over; I’ll still need to figure out what Moony’s going to end up doing once she gets her aetherology degree. But that’s the fun of RPing, ain’t it? PS: As it turns out, IDW has indeed produced a Moondancer character design and gave her a cameo in that Sunset Shimmer bonus comic. Nice to see they also had the good sense to simplify her cutie mark in a manner similar to mine, but I’m in no way interested in amending my “OC’s” CM anytime soon. I don’t want to toss out all the artwork I’ve had requested of Moony just because the stars are aligned differently… and because I’m lazy. (Scan from The Fall of Sunset Shimmer bonus IDW comic) A Night Under the Stars: This became Moondancer’s first RP for a very obvious reason: she’s a night pony, and the thread was littered with night ponies up the ying yang. This included of course the Queen of the Night herself: Princess Luna as played by MyLittlePonyTales back in those days. Technically Moony didn’t do all that much in this RP; she came in halfway through and acted as the most normal pony of the lot, lacking any personal issues to discuss. And this was also one of the first times in WoE that I’d interacted with 2-3 other RPers at once (it happens quite a bit when I’m using Moondancer). You know that pre-existing friendship thing I wrote about earlier? This is the RP where I really started taking advantage of establishing relationships beforehand rather than having to go through the grind of meeting new OCs for the first time. The only pony here that Moondancer met for the first time was Luna; the other two were the long-lost close friend Ice Storm and younger magic student Fire Heart. Both of these unicorns went on to bond with Moony in other threads, especially Ice Storm. Moony’s appearance at Icy’s (abortive) wedding and Moony's resulting romantic misadventure with Lux’s Lore Weaver probably would never have happened if I never made prearranged my unicorn’s friendship with Ice Storm before entering this RP. Nighttime Tomfoolery: I managed to drag Raridash’s Dazzle Dawn out of retirement for this RP. Basically, the importance of this RP was that it strengthened the friendship between Moondancer and Ice Storm, as Icy’s worries about attending slumber parties were finally squashed once and for all. Also, this thread emphasized that Moony and Dazzle were already close friends too; something I always like. I will not hesitate to make similar arrangements with other characters in the future (especially those walking around with gifts during the pilot’s Canterlot sequences). Spellbound Beginnings: Despite me writing the thread’s opening post, credit for the concept ultimately goes to LoopEnd, who wanted to set up a magic guild for WoE. Because I loved the concept so much, I eventually ended up as the de facto captain of this outfit. Technically, this thread is in fact a meet-and-greet thread that I usually tend to shun. Yet I really liked participating in this one, mainly because it was magic-themed and all. Plus a few of Moony’s friends showed up too, which always rules. Yet this thread also taught me to really be wary of multi-pony conversations; my responses to numerous OCs at the same time took forever to write… especially when I was using Ingrid Marie at the same time. Personally, I’d say Spellbound as a group has had mixed success so far. It’s unfortunate to report that almost no new blood has joined our ranks since the completion of the first guild RP, nor have many dedicated Spellbound threads popped up since then. Yet the group is far from forgotten; many members are over in An Equestrian Education helping out with Princess Twilight’s magic camp, and this thread also directly leads into… (Image drawn by Fauxsquared) The Fixer-Upper: One Spellbound member, Tacobob’s Pocket Change, proved himself to be easily tempted by mares back in the last thread. Of course, I kept repeatedly joking to Taco that his OC was hot over heels infatuated with Moondancer, and I even requested LoopEnd to draw a mildly naughty artwork to that effect. As the introductory thread closed, I proposed to set up a private Spellbound thread for our characters to see if a genuine romantic connection could be forged. I always assumed beforehand that I could never realistically match up Moondancer with any character. To me, Moony would be too interested in making friends to see them as romantic partners, let alone find someone with the right… chemistry to make things happen (Lore Weaver learned this the hard way). As things turned out however, Pocket Change actually was somepony Moondancer could fall for: he does everything with passion, always has exciting stories to tell, possesses a tender side, looks really dang hot, and maybe most importantly of all, clearly demonstrated a romantic interest in the mare from almost the get-go. All in all, MoonPocket is by far my favorite ship to write for so far, mainly because Pocket is a fun character to interact with and he’s always immersed in adventure… which when combined with magic, produces extreme excitement! It also helps a lot that I plainly like working with Tacobob. He deserves credit for turning this thread into an interesting mini-adventure with loads of cute shippy scenes. The guy also has a good sense of using humor and littering his posts with worldbuilding, callbacks to previous RPs, and sneaky references. It’s really too bad I’ve never RPed with him earlier until now. The good news: working together, we already have a rough plan for our next MoonPocket thread. ^_^ An Equestrian Education: Funny story… I originally planned on setting up a magic tutoring workshop featuring Spellbound instructors. Those plans fortunately ended up merged into SteelEagle’s plan for a magic camp run by Princess Twilight. Moony for this thread will actually be a student, because the RP needed more grown-up students than just kids... plus Ingrid Marie was already set to be an instructor. With Pocket Change, Lore Weaver, and Dazzle Dawn joining in on the fun too, sparks should be flying very soon! (Image drawn by GhostGirl) ----------------------- That ran long, didn’t it? Hoped you all enjoy the read though, ladies and gentlemen. The next time I do one of these thingies, I’ll finally get to yap about my first (formerly) Tier 2 character. So… watch out!!!
  18. Celestia's sun was in its final gasp of the day as it began to dip below the horizon to allow for the moon to break until full view over the lands of Equestria. A cold winter night was threatening to scoop up any lost individuals into a rather uncomfortable night's sleep. One of these few unfortunate souls was a unicorn mare with a coat as dark as the night itself. Her fiery eyes peered out from beneath her hooded cowl while she lightly cantered through the snow towards the often terrorized city of Ponyville. A good nights sleep was probably in order, not that she often found herself sleeping at vaguely normal hours. The frigid nipping of the cold nipped at the recesses of her mind, but the perpetually stoic mare could ignore it for now, knowing that it was just mildly uncomfortable for her brief trip over to the town. A frigid gust sliced through the area, causing her crimson eyes to narrow ever so slightly, her face vanishing beneath a her cloak until only the faintest traces of her eyes remained. It was unusually cold, but the city was only a few minutes trot away!
  19. You said it, Me. I sure am looking for a good roleplay that can be wrapped up in the course of a few weeks and then move onto the second. A mission-based RP would be most desirable. A Magical Mystery who's only cure is kicking it's flank! Or... maybe just nullifying a Dark Magical presence in an area. Something occult but not terrible dark would do nicely! Why I couldn't agree more, Me. If only there were somepony out there who could direct such a short yet deliciously epic quest. ;3; Oh do not feign yet, my friend! We sha'll see! Yes! Let's. Looking for Roleplayers with a preference to an average 1-3 descriptive paragraphs or more. Who can move a plot along rather quickly and efficiently and yet still leave it somewhat fun and open as to how we resolve said plot! I've spent a lot of my time Dungeoneering quests and now... I could use a break T-T Needs somepony clever and capable, Fun and Ferocious! So come on come all! Lets discuss where this menagerie of Merriment shall take us! I enjoy: Adventure - whimsical and mysterious. Action - No Wars would be nice xD Mystery Character Development and Interaction(Personal or Professional) Humor in good taste!
  20. Spring is here and the Elder Tree Teahouse wants to celebrate! Come join in an afternoon of fun, tea and sweets! And if you’re brave, tackle the Tower of Tea Roses for a chance to win a fantastic prize! You could win one of three mysterious, enchanted prizes: a violin, a traveler’s cloak, or a cutlass! What a lovely spring day! The sun was shining brightly in Canterlot, its cheerful rays chasing away the few remaining shreds of winter. Though the air was still a little crisp, the breeze was balmy and fresh, promising new life. All around Elderflower’s gardens little buds had formed upon vines and flower bushes, and the leaves of her elder tree had even begun to unfurl a little. The mare beamed happily - typically that tree, towering even above the high roof of her tea house, was the star of her garden. That wasn’t the case today, however! Sticking up like a sore thumb on one side of the gardens was a gargantuan rosebush, its massive tea roses the size of an average pony! Today this was the star in El’s garden. Any unicorn with a keen sense for magic would be able to tell quite easily that it was riddled with magical energy. It had reached its incredible size through long spellcasting sessions and its blooms and thorns had been touched with enchantments as well. It had taken so very much work to put all of this together! The willowy mare never would have managed this on her own: she had her parents, some friends, and Moondancer to thank for the marvel towering cheerfully in her garden. El took a deep breath, a peaceful expression on her face. The scent of the tea roses was everywhere and it made her hopeful that this day would be a success. The huge event that she had planned and advertised for months was finally here! Even though this celebration of spring would definitely bring about a much more lively atmosphere than the Elder Tree Teahouse usually saw, it would no doubt be a perfectly wonderful day. She hoped so, at least! Really, really hoped so! Humming, the mare brewed her first pot of jasmine tea in anticipation for the day’s first arrivals. The delicate floral aroma was almost lost in the perfume of the tea roses, but it tickled her fancy nonetheless. El always had been a fan of jasmine teas. Her little fairy wren, Blue, was perched on her horn as always, trilling a cheery tune to match her humming and behind her brewing station, a table with three glass cases protecting the event’s top prizes sparkled in the sunlight. Beneath the cases were a pale and enchanted violin, a soft blue cloak that looked like water, and a black cutlass with blue runes glowing along the blade. Laid out neatly around the cases were consolation prizes: luck potions, sweets, trinkets, and jewelry. It was a pretty impressive spread! She had a certain Stalliongrad mare to thank for these wonderful gifts - the day wouldn’t be half so attractive to Canterlot’s citizens without them! Sipping at her first cup of jasmine, the mare gave her set-up one final, scrutinizing look. There were low tables surrounded by cushions dotting the grounds, and each table had pretty ceramic cups resting upon them. Between the rosebush, the tables, the prize stand, and her brewing station, the gardens were quite full! She had no doubt things would get lively once some of her guests appeared. When they did appear at the front step of the Elder Tree Teahouse, they would find open doors and a sign which pointed them through the back doors. A short walk through the tranquil wooden building would bring them into the open gardens, where countless varieties of plants were growing, most in full bloom or covered with buds. Overall it was a peaceful atmosphere they were entering, with the one exception at this point being the massive, looming rosebush which cut into the sky. At a glance, it looked to be about 3 stories high! And of course Elderflower herself would be there waiting to greet anypony who wanted to come and celebrate the start of spring with a bang! Her brewing station was directly in the line of sight of anypony coming through that back door, so she would be the first thing they would see. Knowing this, she bore a warm, pleasant smile that was permanently etched into her expression and a cast iron teapot waiting to be poured.
  21. Hello again everyone, I just remembered another of my crazy theories and wanted to get it down before I forgot about it again, so here it goes:So, I'm sure you all know the legends of mythical creatures and powerful wizards. All across the world there are different tales of powerful beings and strange creatures, and a lot of them are eerily similar to each other. Well, this theory is about how all of those stories are true and how come they no longer exist today. You see, we humans used to have magic, and the world was filled with it. We were not the only ones that could use it, but we were very adept at it. There were multiple Gods, who ultimately were responsible for granting us this magic, hence older religions that have too many Gods to remember. As we grew as a species, we did what we usually tend to do. We began to feel like we owned magic, and that we were entitled to it, and essentially it was like it is with technology today. Anyway, we began to abuse magic, and to grow more and more hateful of the other species that inhabited our planet. We were killing off the magical creatures so quickly, they started to become more and more rare, and the Gods more and more careful who got magic. But eventually, as we continued to overstep our boundaries and turn to more conventional means of living and killing, the Gods decided there was only one thing they could do: they would use their magic to create a copycat world similar to the one currently inhabited. The copycat world would grow independently of the other, and would be inaccessible from the original world. Now, here's where things get tricky. You see, I can't be sure whether our world is the copycat, or theirs. However, I'm pretty sure that in order to create the copycat world a structure, or maybe a series of structures, had to be used as a sort of anchor to keep the worlds connected. The anchor isn't invincible though, and I believe that the anchor may be breaking down, slowly closing the gap between our world and theirs, which explains some phenomena in our world. I don't know what exactly the anchor could be, maybe Stonehenge or the like, but I do know that if the anchor is destroyed it will be catastrophic for both worlds. Since we have developed our worlds differently, structures are sure to collide with each other. It will easily be apocalyptic for both sides. I just hope if this one turns out being right, I survive and can live out my life among my dragon brethren. Stay crazy everybody!
  22. (Don't bother asking if you can join hehe it's fun for everyone hehe ^o^) Scissor Hooves and Harmony Chaser walked through town together loving that they are back in their home town Ponyville. They stopped of in the park and chatted contently liking the greenery around them. Scissor Hooves is a young mare pegasus her eyes are hazel with a hint of green going towards the middle. She has a dark grey coat that she take care of and makes it shine when it needs to. There are a couple of scars on her hooves and legs from where she was learning how to sew. Scissor's mane is dark brown with a hint of black going down the right side of the mane. Her mane is normally over her right shoulder and her fringe is swept to the side so she can see. Her tail hits the floor but the pattern is different. The black runs down the middle of her tail in a zig-zag. She is a well known dress maker in the country and can be away for weeks at a time because of her job. Her cutie mark is a pair of sewing scissors with red handles. Attached to one of the red handles is a blue ribbon tied to it flowing behind. Harmony Chaser is a young mare unicorn her eyes are light brown. She has a white coat that glistens in the sun and moonlight. Her mane is short but has dashes of midnight blue one or twice through that curly mane and tail. She composes songs for the public and sometimes performs at the castle in Canterlot and the crystal empire. Her cutie mark is a midnight blue music note with a microphone crossing over it.
  23. Spring is just around the corner! In order to celebrate the expansion of her gardens and the arrival of the season, Elderflower's hosting an event behind the Elder Tree Teahouse unlike anything she has done before. Foregoing the usual peaceful, quiet atmosphere of her business for once, El has decided to open up her gardens for an exciting end-of-winter celebration. During the extravaganza, there will be a rosebush. An impossibly huge rosebush towering in the sky and full of tea roses the size of an average adult pony! Many of these blooms will be available for picking...for those who are daring enough. The blooms themselves have been enchanted, causing them to vanish and reappear on another part of the giant rosebush the moment somepony's hooves or magic touches them. After teleporting to another part of the bush, however, there will be a small window where one could snatch a blossom. Once you've wrangled a bloom, you can bring it to El to have her make some tea out of it - and that's where the real magic happens. Every blossom contains within it some sort of boon that comes out during the steeping, the steam rising from the tea forming into your prize! Consolation prizes are desserts and small, magical trinkets: baubles that will sing back any sound you command it to, little crystal balls that shine different colours to remind you of the things you forget, socks enchanted to constantly keep your hoovesies warm! Larger prizes include books, hoof-made teapots and cups, jewellery, a few really neat adventurer's whips, and a lovely whittling blade with a hilt made of askr wood! There are three prizes, however, that most attendees will be eager to get their hooves on: 1. A fifty year-old violin crafted from the purest aspen wood near Lake Cirrus that has been enchanted so that whenever one plays a beautiful enough melody, fireflies and luna moths flock to the instrument and musician both. This instrument was crafted by a master violin-maker, a peryton whose work is prized to this day. After he made this instrument he had it enchanted, with the intention of giving it to a beautiful pegasus violinist whom he had fallen in love with and seeing her play it for him. Instead of giving him the most beautiful performance he would witness, however, she rejected the gift and his love. Towards the end of his life he sold it. 2. A black cutlass etched with glimmering blue runes which can cut through minor magical barriers. Forged by an expert weaponsmith from Stalliongrad generations ago who was learned in the ways of Hippostian anti-unicorn weaponry. The Stallian earth pony who made this blade was once famous for her ability to craft weapons which could cut down and through any magical foe or shield. 3. A silken cloak of shifting blue hues so convincing that it appears as though the wearer has been draped in a sheet of water. The cloak allows its wearer to stay completely dry in the water, whether they're swimming or caught in the rain! There is little information on this cloak. It came from the sea ponies years ago and its origins were never explained. Sign up in here to join in the fun and try your hoof at winning a fantastic prize! And watch out for those thorns! El may have stuck them with a spell that makes it impossible for them to wound anypony participating in the fun, but bumping into one will leave you with a little pinprick...and a hex that makes you burst out in song for a whole refrain! Prizes will be decided by dice rolls and the amount of consolation and smaller prizes will be determined by how many people participate in the thread. Because of this, I'm going to close up the signup here once the thread is started (which will happen in three-four days). Participants: 1. Khamsin 2. Flux 3. Lore Weaver 4. Nocturne Wisp 5. Earth Writer 6. Celestia (Not competing?) 7. Lyra 8. Pathfinder 9. Amethyst 10. Flaxen Feather 11. Flourish 12. Ice Storm?

    An ancient pony told of that holds the power of song. This is a unicorn princess {not an alicorn} from an upcoming story I have been working on. this is the 'grown up' corrupted version. Notice the dark energy from her eyes like sombra. This is important for later in my story.
