  1. Roleplay Type: WoE {I can do para, but I struggle with it. I usually do a few sentences at a time. It helps if I know when my turn is. I like D&D. Please no sexy or romantic RP, although I would like her to have a close BFF relationship like Lyra and Bonbon.}Name: Shine RunnerAge: MareSpecies: Unicorn - her magic colour is goldEye colour: Dark Mint GreenCoat: Brilliant Mulberry (Purple)Mane/Tail: Cyan and pink, fluffy mohawk and short wavy tailPhysique: AverageResidence: CanterlotOccupation: Interior designer (night clubs, resorts, arcades, roller rinks, etc.)Cutie Mark: Gold Disco Ball (surrounded by one large pink sparkle and one small blue sparkle) Shine Runner got her Cutie Mark when she turned a dull silver disco ball into a rich gold one at her junior prom. Because of her colour-changing spell, the room was filled with warm, shining light that finished setting the mood for the Celestia's Sun-themed dance. From then on, she knew her destiny was "creating an atmosphere of inspiration and imagination" wherever she could.Unique Traits: Almost always wears hoop or pompom earrings and eye shadow. Sometimes she wears fancy feather eyelashes and a punk rocker or swanky party outfit. She usually wears a sparkly tuxedo instead of a dress at formal events. Her magic isn't that great, aside from changing the colours of inanimate objects and summoning party supplies from her house. It's very hard for her to teleport or use force fields, unless she's in a state of abject terror. If she's sad or feeling less than confident, she can't perform any spell besides levitation. History: Born in Las Pegasus. Traveled all over Equestria with her salespony parents during childhood. Her parents are retired and live in Las Pegasus with their pink poodle, Peppy. Shine Runner had a pleasant childhood, and is on good terms with her parents. Shine doesn't visit them very often, but frequently sends and receives mail. She also has a cousin named Squeaky Clean, who was her childhood best friend and pen pal. Even though they are very different, they like to visit each other. Squeaky Clean provided the emotional support her cousin needed to get through design school. Right now, Shine Runner leads a fairly fulfilling life doing what she loves; designing fun spaces for fun places. She also has various enjoyable hobbies, such as tarot reading, bottle collecting, indoor gardening, running in marathons, and stand-up comedy. Still, she would like to have a close best friend, and to be recognized and admired by some fans. One day, she hopes to open up a "disco carnival castle" somewhere in Canterlot, Las Pegasus, or any town that could use some "livening up." She would also like to have a companion pet, such as an enfield or black cat, to travel with her. Character Personality: Because of her style, poise, and tastes, Shine Runner is easily mistaken for somepony who is stuck-up and snooty, or rough and rowdy. Though she is both glamorous and tomboyish, her main trait is her hospitable nature. She values comfort, fun, and kindness above all else. Even so, she tends to be very snarky when she's annoyed, and can easily step on somepony's feelings if she's not careful. Her self-assured attitude can also come off as arrogant, especially when her fast-talking charm backfires. Shine Runner has a phobia of bears, geese; if there were such a thing as a goosebear, that would be her worst nightmare. Though she's not the fastest, she enjoys the feeling of wind in her mane. Roller coasters delight her! She likes to eat dim sum (dumplings), pesto, jam toast, popcorn, plums, and smoothies. Her favourite cake is limoncello cream. Her favourite cookie is tied between gingerbread and oatmeal vanilla sandwich. Her favourite ice cream is birthday cake (cake batter with rainbow sprinkles) She does not like raisins, red apples, apricots, spicy foods, nuts, or chocolate ice cream. Her favourite music is disco, and her favourite band of all time is Draft Punk. She would be embarrassed if somepony caught her reading one of her favourite books: -Ellie Elevator and Doris the Dragon (because it's for foals) -What Sugar Lace Forgot (because it's a mystery romance) -The Florist and the Flutist (because it's a sappy love story) Stallions may find her attractive, but their advances will always be shot down with some level of sass (unless she can weasel her way into getting something out of them.) Secretly, she prefers the company of mares, but isn't about to tie herself down just yet. She prefers to remain mysterious and unattainable (or single and content.) Character Summary: Purple disco punk unicorn who does interior design. Total extrovert. Would make a great gameshow host.
  2. Rules: Standard Purpose: I'm writing a story I wish to eventually turn into a book and i want ideas, story wise, with where i want the whole thing to go. Setting: the world of Alden, different races do exist, but for the sake of simplicity if you prefer to be a pony, yoshi, or what ever, as long as you can fit into the story and it makes some sense. (No "i'm a pony and I give the bad guy cake" in the heat of battle) Races: Humans: blah standard. all around with skills since some blood is mingled. Galvite: Galvites don't particularly carry a talent for magic, but can wield potent elemental skills, mostly dealing with transference of energy (namely electricity, light, fire, etc). they have markings on there bodies that they are born with, ranging from simple, symmetrical birth marks (if there is an L mark on the left side of the face, there is a similar mark on the right), to complex markings similar to tribal tattoos. They are identical to humans Armost: Immaterial beings made of sentient ether. They share a close connection to the earth through the life-stream, the source of life. Since they don't have physical bodies, they inhabit husks of cloth and metal for bodies. Because of their close association to the earth, they have access to skills based along the forms of matter (ice, earth, wind, water, etc). Some can bend the life-stream to their will and use potent magics Ferals: devolved elves, basically elves reduced back to a tribal state. fast, agile, and strong but can be naive to other people's tech and politics but can use magics if they can learn them. STORY!!! "Oh what dark dreams I have had of late," the Great Cowl said as he held his hand on his face mask, "I thought for a moment... We were still at war..." His body was wrapped in thick cloth, making the tall entity look like it simply sprouted out of the ground. His shoulders were haunched and his head held low. No features made it out from behind the round mask and under the deepness of his hood. His colleague, a female that looked nearly identical, save for the fact that she had a softer flow and form than the old man and did not hold her head so low. "What did you see last night?" she asked, placing a hand on his shoulder. Her voice was soft and had the flow of a gentle breeze. "Him... Sardis," the Great Cowl shivered at the name, it held a distaste in his mouth, assuming he had one, "I have dreamt for several nights now of that day when--" His voice trailed off as if the thought fell away from his mind. "You mustn’t blame yourself, sir." the woman said, her mask expressing a face of concern. His mask furled into a look of despair as he crossed his arms behind his back. "Oh but I do, my dear. If I had not acted so hastily that day, that day so long ago, perhaps the book might not have fallen into the wrong hands and the sword might have been placed in the right ones." She lowered her head and looked out of the window of the library, saying nothing. "Perhaps," he said, his mask squinting as he looked at the land below the mountain the library sat on, "Perhaps it's a sign of things to come.” “What do you mean, sir?” she asked looking back at him, head tilted to the side just slightly. “Can you feel it?” he asked, not moving, “I can. The life-stream is waning.” “I don’t understand, sir.” “Ever since that day, it has been slowly disappearing. The fields are not as fertile as they used to be. Life is less plentiful. Even our own people are starting to live shorter lives. I can feel my own link to the stream fading. But…” he held an unusually long silence that it was almost uncomfortable for the woman to wait for the coming words, “But… It is strange, that one part of the dream was different from the war…” The woman’s mask showed a mixture of confusion and consern. The Great Cowl turned away from the window and walked, or more like floated, out of the sandstone chamber, the hems of his robe sucking down onto the floor as if he were a tree rooted to the ground. “I could swear that the child I saw was… different. Perhaps… there is hope yet for us. Or maybe I am an old fool, hoping in vain for what will never come. But I thought I saw,” he stopped and looked towards the ceiling, “Thunder.” He paused for a moment, as if searching for the words of a long lost thought or memory. “‘The First shall be held aloft by a Son of Thunder.’” The mermaid let her fingers fall gently through his hair. The boy was rapt with her elfin features. Her skin was a pale pink, the scales barely noticeable. Her long, crimson hair flowed over her shoulders and down her front. The boy laid there, half asleep, as she caressed him. Her face pulled close to his, her eyes fixated on his. She whispered to him, “Ian… Ian…” “Ian… Ian. Ian!” the voice grew slowly from a sensually silky siren song to a gruff and growling voice of man. Ian looked up and saw that the siren’s face was now replaced with the visage of an iron clad helmet with searing, burning eyes, glaring at him from within the helm. Heat roiling from the mouth guard sent the smell of coal and cinders into his face. Ian leapt back in shock as far as he could, considering that he had been laying on his back. It didn’t help. “Woah!” he yelled at the image, still terrified out of his mind. The face jumped back as well, revealing a massive suit of armor supporting the “fire breathing” helmet. “You’re an ugly mermaid!” Ian shouted as loud as he could. The eyes alone showed a look of confusion at the absurd, and quite awkward, words that just came from the boy’s mouth. The armored man stared at him for only a moment before saying, “Boy, what in the hell are you talking about!? I expect you to be down at the market early to get that damned ore, and I find you here sleeping like a stable boy!” The armored man shot a quick hand at the blankets that Ian was still wrapped in and pulled them, and Ian, to the ground. “I have fifteen more of those damn swords I need to finish by the end of the month and the sooner I get that iron, the sooner you can get back to dreaming of ugly mermaids! Do you understand me?” the tone was similar to that of a sailor: hot, salty, and bad tempered. Ian just nodded like a rattle in a toddler’s hand. “Good.” the armored man nodded once at the bewildered child on the floor as he left the room with great, metallic stomps, “I put seventy gold pieces in a bag for the ore, do not forget it, boy, or you’ll be out of dinner for a week.” “Yes, sir!” Ian saluted as the iron giant walked down the hallway, swearing to himself the whole way. Once he was, presumably, out of earshot, Ian sighed, “Cranky old tin can…” “I HEARD THAT!” a shout came from downstairs. A shiver went down Ian’s spine like an ice cold drip of water.
