Rarity gave a content sigh as she stared at the beauteous dress lying in front of her. With it's vibrant rose colour, elegant cut and the delicate inlay of glossy pink gemstones, it was nothing short of fabulous! Staring out of it, Rarity was filled with a bright surge of beaming pride. This was going to be the next step for her, she could feel it already! Today was going to be a good day for her. In her mind, there wasn't the sightly chance that something may go awry. The young, up and coming designer found herself at, Fashions of Equestria, a fashion show currently in Manehattan. She was no stranger to fashion shows; no, she tried her hardest to attend as many as she could. There was no better way to capture the attention of the world of glamour than by showing one's latest masterpiece. This show was a pretty notable one too, a traveling show that hit many cities. Normally Rarity would be opposed to anything that kept her away from the boutique for so long, but she was thinking she'd manage in this case. if not, she could always just pull out. Just staying with the first few shows would be enough to get new faces through Carousel Boutique's doors, she was sure. She had a lot of confidence. The only thing that concerned her somewhat is that the model she was to be working with evidently was a rather young one. This was not necessarily a bad thing, she supposed, though in some cases the young ones could be more details. She was also apparently going to be working with a photographer and neither they nor the model had shown yet. That was mildly concerning considering the show was to start relatively soon, but Rarity wouldn't worry just yet. No, she remained with optimism in her heart. Smiling and humming quietly to herself, Rarity adjusted her working glasses and started to once more look over her dress thoroughly. She reckoned she had just enough time to check for the fifty-seventh time that every inch of the gown was perfect down to the smallest of details.
[colour=#DDA0DD]I am Photo Finish, and zis is mein favorite, new RP idea in all of ze Canterlot![/colour] Now that I have your attention, welcome to "Der Assistent", a new, several threads spanning quest to find a new personal assistant for Photo Finish. How will we go about that? I'm glad you asked!! We will have a contest, inspired by casting shows like Masterchef and The Apprentice. The judges will be Sapphire Shores, who is not only a famous musician and pop idol, but also always on the pulse of fabulousity, Picture Perfect, renowned abstract artist, unique in his extended experience working with the Blue Mare of Fashion, and, of course, Photo Finish, the eccentric fashion scout and chief editor of Couture. Together, they will eliminate contestants one by one, until one remains, not only winning a one year contract as Photo Finish's personal assistant (which looks great in a curriculum vitae), but also a cash price (and bragging rights). A couple of notes at this point: - The thread will have team challenges and individual challenges, and after each challenge, one contestant will be eliminated, by the jury (us). - This is a real contest, so please only enter if you are a good sport, and aren't going to take an elimination personally. - Although I don't expect the winner to RP with me for all eternity, you should have a general interest in actually doing one or two threads with Photo Finish after the contest wraps up. - Contest posts will be judged based on creativity, meeting the requirements of the challenge, and personal growth. Remember, just being perfect in everything is far less impressive then overcoming a personal struggle. - Individual challenges will only allow for one post per contestant, and the three judges are allowed to post in between to comment on the challenge in process. After all contestants have made their posts, the judges will decide who gets eliminated based on the criteria above. The two best entries will become the team captains for the following team challenge, picking team members from the remaining contestants. - Team challenges will consist of a bigger task, and will be played out in a separate thread, opened for a week. There wont be a set post order for the teams, but you will be required to wait for at least 2 posts by your team members before you are allowed to post again (subject to change depending on the number of contestants). At the end of the week, the jury will again judge the team's performances, and name a winner, allowing the loosing team to nominate 3 contestants who are up for elimination. The judges obviously have the last word on that. - Both cast and OCs are welcome, but only one per person. - The contest will take place in Manehattan for starters, but will move to a surprise location down the line. Traveling expenses and housing will be paid by the organizers. - If you'd like to participate, but don't actually want to win, feel free to sign up anyway, but don't write it in here. PM me instead, so I know. Questions and signups in this thread, please. Once we have enough contestants, the main thread will open up. Thanks for reading. I GO!

Things don't always go as planned. The smallest things can sometimes destroy the most meticulous planning. I could turn out, as an example, that your latest discovery decides that the life of a supermodel is not the right thing for her, no matter how much you insist, you can't force someone to live the dream of so many mares and stallions. Photo Finish had barely noticed how her mind had wandered up until now, as she snapped out of it with a slightly annoyed sigh. She looked around in her compartment. It was first class, of course, but even though, she didn't really enjoy train rides. And this one was going to be unusual for a couple of reasons, some of them she wasn't even aware of right now. It all started yesterday, back in Ponyville. The blue mare of fashion had received a telegraph of the most urgent kind, summoning her back to Couture headquarters immediately. Apparently there had been a new designer entering the Canterlot fashion scene and those new designs, they were said to be absolutely dazzling. 'Huh' she thought to herself, adjusting her iconic glasses 'I, Photo Finish, vill be ze judge of zat..' Of course, time was of the essence now. It was important for a prestigious fashion magazine like Couture to be at the pulse of the local fashion scenes, so the sooner they could write a feature about a promising, new designer, the better. Photo Finish knew she wouldn't be able to wait for the train that had been booked for her and her entourage. So she did the only right thing: booking a last minute overnight train ticket to Canterlot. Just her, and light baggage (only two cameras and a hoof full of different lenses). Fortunately, she had the compartment to herself. She didn't really intend to talk much during this trip. Or so she had thought. Just as the light blue mare had been able to fall asleep, rumble went through the train, not only roughly waking her up, but almost throwing her out of her seat. As she tried to comprehend the situation in her slightly sleepy head, she thanked Celestia that she had tugged her bags under her seat instead of the luggage racks above the seats. Those lenses were very fragile, not to mention expensive. And she knew from experience that she should never part with her cameras. You never knew when inspiration would strike. Photo Finish waited for a few minutes in complete silence. This train hadn't been very full, she noticed while boarding. She wasn't even sure if there had been any other ponies in the first class. Being on a tight schedule, she would likely be too late for her meeting, should this disruption take too long. She had to do something. The famous earth pony mare threw open the door, stepping out of her compartment dramatically. She struck a pose. "Vat is going on?" She asked loudly to noone in particular "I, Photo Finish, demand to know vhy ze train stopped moving!!"
