Hello Everyone! Quicklime here with a new and fun idea for an open thread! I really want to make the best of this rp thread, and to see if I've still got it to play the lovely lady here~ And what better way to do that than with a semi-open, fun adventure thread?! First things first, I shall start with: The Plot The time has come once again, for Pink Lady to make the long trek back home, so she can enter the Everfee Forest in order to get the special ingredient to her secret recipe for Apple Jubilee, a very special berry called the "WinterGreen' berry, that seems to trap the winter's coolness in every soft, blue, glowing orb of fruit! It adds a pop of coolness to a dish that's set on fire, and it's ABSOLUTELY essential. Pink Lady however does NOT wish to take this rather dangerous trek alone, and is currently recruiting ponies to aid her, she needs a small, but vigilant group of adventurers, to protect her and each other as she goes on this quest for these mysterious berries, that only grow in the very heart of the Everfree! The reward is both Bits, and the first slices of her excellent Apple Jubilee, are you up for the adventure!? Rules for the Thread: Now I'm an old foagy when it comes to Rping, so there's going to be a few rules for the thread, specifically for my own comfort and enjoyment, if these are not for you then I understand, and thank you very much for your time 1: WOE Only This means no Alicorns (save for Canons), no non site approved species, no over powered ponies/other creatures, I'd like this to have the same flavor and feel to the show, with a slight edge to it if possible, and with the structure to back it up. 2: Limit of 2 characters PER user Please limit yourself to playing 2 characters, ain't nobody got time to read a wall of text because you wanted to play every character in your roster 3: Don't derail the plot If you have an idea for the plot that can enhance it, post here, and see if others are interested/if I'm up for it, if so I'll pm you and we can hammer out the details! I want this to be fun, not ridged and strict, but I also don't want the party finding a creepy murder house in the middle of the Everfree where they get transported to another dimension ya feel me? 4: Don't threadHog To clarify, please don't just post in rapid succession to reply to a post aimed at you, there will be a cool down of "Post after everyone has had a turn" If the other people in the thread haven't had a chance to reply yet, then wait. The EXCEPTION is if we've been told by the poster that something's come up and that they'll be "ghosting" in this thread till they can resume posting, then it's okay to skip them 5: Be considerate of others in posts. If someone is engaged in a conversation with your character and you want to move on to the next scene/bit of action... properly end the conversation, don't just ignore them and move on to the next point of interest, that's rude and makes people feel ignored, if people are feeling ignored, let me know and I'll try to include them more~ That's all the rules! I'm going to cap this at like what 5 people joining? I doubt I'll get that many people interested but LET'S GO ADVENTURE THE EVER-FREE FOREST!

They've actually been accepted for a while now, but I never got around to making one of these… Anyways, this relationship planning thread will be kind of tricky, since it involves two characters. The first is Fabled Archives, who actually shouldn't have that many relationships because he's been traveling abroad. But there are still a few he could have, some basic ones, so I'll outline them here: Foalhood Friend/Rival - Pretty basic. A foalhood relation is one I look for for all my characters, since it adds time and history to a relationship. Only stipulation is that this character would have had to have lived in Kastrot, and most probably lived on the island that Arc's house owns. Or they were able to visit the port a lot of the times. This character can be either a friend or a rival, or both rolled into one. Zebra tribes pony/Rescuer - Arc's been living in Unyasi within various tribes, though I imagine he took a shine to one in particular. This character would need to be a Zebra that's also lived in Unyasi for most of their life, definitely along the time Arc came long. Possibly somepony that liked to go on adventures with him. Another idea for this relationship is a pony who is not a Zebra, but who was traveling in Unyasi and happened to rescue Arc while he was out exploring/adventuring. Siblings - Not so much planning but throwing it out there. I imagine Arc to be a big brother of sorts, but I didn't specify who/what siblings he had. So if anyone's interested in making a sibling character for Arc, let me know. Now the real meat of this planning thread is for Heartless, a Changeling who has taken on Arc's face to travel around Equestria. Heartless will also take on other disguises, but Arc's disguise is his favorite. His MO is basically to travel around as Arc, and then swap disguises if he comes upon a particular target that he thinks he can exploit and will be interacting with more than once. Some ideas: Foalhood acquaintance/friend/rival - Since he grew up in Queen Chrysalis' Hive, I'm sure Heartless knew many of the other Changelings there. He could have an old rival for Chrysalis' attention, or just a Changeling he knew well. Heartless doesn't actually feel many emotions, but he'd still be able to fake feelings of friendship and affection that would be genuine - but only because Heartless knows having friends is considered a normal thing for someone to have. If that makes any sense. For all intents and purposes, a friendly relationship will work even for a character like Heartless. Ex-Marefriend - Heartless takes Love in whatever form he can, so it's not out of the question that he would have made nice with a mare and dumped her without notice once he got bored of her particular taste of Love. There could be several of these - though I imagine Heartless would use different forms per city or something, so as not to spread a particular reputation for one disguise. Army buddy - Heartless worked as a recon scout, but I imagine there were others he went on missions with. Maybe just a Changeling that worked in the same field as him. They could have a positive or negative relationship, doesn't really matter. Medic/Doctor - After the failed invasion of Canterlot (and I think there was a forum canon invasion that happened during a Nightmare Night event here, too), I imagine Heartless could have been wounded in some way, enough that he had to stick around Equestria before slinking back to the Empire. He could have run into somepony that helped patched him up, let him stay in their home for a while, etc. Heartless could have either been disguised the whole time, or been unable to disguise his Changeling form (though I don't think a pony would have allowed a Changeling to be so near him/her just after an invasion). Either way, Heartless would have eventually left this pony to return to the Empire. Anything - Heartless is a master manipulator, able to swap disguises and personalities to become whatever somepony needs him to be, and he does so in hopes of being able to feed off some form of Love from whatever pony he is interacting with. He could have been that one pony that rescued a character from the Everfree, the food critic who helped improved a baker's recipes, the photographer that promised to show off a model's portfolio to a famous agency - literally anything. If you have an idea of your character having met someone in the past that had an impact on them, either positive or negative, Heartless could have been that character. Like always, these are just ideas that popped into my head. Feel free to suggest your own if you're interested in establishing a relationship with either of these characters, and we'll see if we can make it work! You can also check out my character log if you want more info on the characters, but it's mostly just expansion on the profile information.
