It was well past curfew. At this time, every hall of the School of Friendship was likely dark and empty. Occasionally, a custodian would be lurking the halls to finish up their cleaning duties for the night. None of the doors were ever locked, except for some of the faculty offices. There was never any reason to fret on some creature sneaking into a classroom. Maybe one day, a student who was a huge prankster would give the school a reason to lock its many corridors, but for now, the closed campus was surprisingly pretty open. Silverstream is no prankster, but she did have reason to be up at this late hour. She recently felt inspired to do some extracurricular activities that involved some study and planning. She started a habit of just minding her own business, and was sometimes peculiarly solo on her interests. She gets excited all the time and loves to share her musings with her friends and teachers. But too many goofy looks on her friends' faces whenever Silverstream would hold up a chart about hydraulic rams gave her pause on how much she should be sharing this extra enthusiasm. She wasn't nearly as embarrassed as she was disappointed that her friends didn't also think hydro-kinetic engineering was fascinating. Eventually, she would shrug it off and plan to spend some of her alone time with these daydreams of unpredictable learning rabbit holes. After the students' quarters were good and quiet, Silverstream softly opened her door and closed it behind her, tip-toeing her claws and hooves across the carpeted stone flooring. She made her way to the exit to make her way through the courtyard. Her destination would be a place where she hoped no one would be. It's a good thing she waited until this late hour, so that none of the other students would be disturbed by her night-crawling expedition.
Midday classes had finished and the campus halls and courtyards were now flooded with creature students of all shapes, sizes, and colors. Some students who lived off campus but in Ponyville would elect to trek through the market before going home to enjoy the rest of their evening. The ones who lived on campus generally did their own version of collective society within the school's venues. The headmare did a good job acknowledging that you can't properly teach friendship to a young population without giving them time and space in order to exercise what a friendly society should look and function like. It was never perfect, but through the trials and tribulations, students would learn in their own ways how to better themselves and others through the lens of imparting the magic of friendship around them. Two particular creatures who have become veteran students of friendship could be seen together exiting the main hall to the main courtyard. This courtyard was centered by the iconic fountain and was surrounded by many students having conversations and sharing laughs about their day and their life. One of these creatures was Silverstream, who had just gotten out of a class with Professor Pinkie Pie. Today's lesson had been about knowing when to use a joke to lighten the mood of a damp situation. Well, is started that way. Somehow the session ended with the class being show a visual lesson on the proper way to store items in your mane, assuming you were the kind of creature that had a mane. The hippogriff was wearing a wide smile, which was par for the course. "What a blast today. I can't wait to see the second part of Davenport's lecture on friendly customer service. How were your classes today, Smolder?"
Roleplay Type: World of Equestria. Name: Smolder Sex: Female. Age: Fledgling (Filly) Species: Dragon Eye Color: Moderate Cyan. Scales: Brilliant gamboge with light gold underbelly, wing membrane, and ear fronds. Spines: Moderate orchid Physique: Mostly slim and trim. At the final stages of losing the last of her baby fat. Residence: School of Friendship, previously a resident of the Dragon Lands. Occupation: Student at the School of Friendship. Cutie Mark: None. History: Before being dragged, kicking and cursing to Ponyville, Smolder was your usual resident of the Dragon Lands. Once she had finished her 'molt', she found herself fending for herself, as dragons her age were expected to do. Some young dragons found this to be an traumatizing experience. Not Smolder. She loved every bit of it. The freedom to go where she wanted and do anything! Nobody to hold her back! If she wanted rubies for breakfast, she could have it! If she wanted to chase after pigeons, she could do it! But her freedom did not last very long. For some reason, the recently minted 'Dragon Lord' decided that out of all the young dragons in all the lands, Smolder would be the perfect pick to represent her kind at a pony school for FRIENDSHIP! Seriously? This boggled the young girl's mind. Why would a mighty dragon want to spend time with fuzzy little ponies? Prancing about. Bouncing up and down on rainbows. Looking at silly princesses! Gah! But this was different. Other species were being welcomed to this school and dragons would not go underrepresented. Reality quickly dawned on the fledgling as the Dragon Lord and dragon-kid found themselves at the 'School Of Friendship' in all its pink and purpley goodness! Even worse was what hid behind the doors. Screeching Hippogriffs! Poofy ponies with their heads in the clouds! Bizarre shape-shifting weirdoes! And even worse, a big dumb Yak would had already started the traditional 'Yak Destroy All Things That Yak Sees!'. There was also already a young dragon at the school. Had the Dragon Lord lied to her? Nope! She would later find out, the little dragon actually lived in Ponyville. This was too much for Smolder! Dragons were better than this! Still, the Dragon Lord had made up her mind. Smolder was now a student of the school if she liked or not. The school was a bit of a mess at first. Problems came up, and they were conquered. Smolder slowly started to grow close to her fellow students and even found the classes to be rather informative...And enjoyable. How odd. She even developed a slight fondness to the little, awkward dragon Spike. The little fella grew up with ponies and had only recently encountered his own species. This would be something that needed a look into. Maybe she could at least teach him how to be a proper dragon...As the issues arose. No need to rush him. She even came to his aid after an dodgy no-good dragon tried to take advantage of lack of a father in Spike's life. "Dragons are rude and rebellious, but they aren't lazy lumps who take advantage of their kids." Character Personality: Smolder is feisty and independent. She has learned during her stay at the school that she can remain that way, but having a few friends to back you up doesn't hurt either. She has also started to embrace things the younger Smolder would have never considered. From a good cup of tea, to even feeling a little more comfortable of her rapidly expanding feminine side. Character Summary: Smolder is an young dragon quickly entering a world only a few of her kind have dared in recent times. No longer will dragons be solitary creatures held up in caves. They would have homes and be part of an thriving community of creatures big and small. Weak and strong. A society where the smaller would not need to fear being trampled by the larger members of society, but instead combine their own special skills and strengths and create something special. Would she be able to embrace such huge changes, or would she find herself back in her lonely old cave?
