The tavern was quiet... well as quiet as a tavern ever got - there was still the sound of ponies talking, laughing, threatening each other, not to mention the radio playing quietly... but nothing too extreme was happening. The lights were fairly low to aid those who had already drank too much and the scent of tobacco perfumed the air, mixing with the scent of alchol to give the place a very... specific... smell. The door opened and three ponies entered, a pink mare, a blue stallion, and a white colt. The bartender looked up and frowned "Yer not welcome here, Shock..." "Oh is that any way to treat your best customer?" asked Shock "Not this time. Get you. After what happened before I dont ever want to see you here again" "Well that seems rather rude" said the mare "Your not flirting your way out of this, Rose, I want you three out. Now." At this point, another fibure rose rfom her seat nearby "ah think 'e said f' ya ta leave" said the blue grtiffen in the red captains coat "I advise you to not get involved, Pirate" commented the colt "This does not involve you, nor me, and I am staying out of it" "Logic dont phase me, kid" commented Harle "ah rather like this 'ere bar" she drew her trademark weapon and pointed it right at the colt's nose the colt did not blink Harle pulled the trigger and a red dot appeared on the colt's nose for a split-second He blinked a moment "was that supposed to do something?" She did it again. Now the turbines on the sides of the weapon were whirring "are you quite done?" he asked A third time The colt still did not react "if you wish to fight..." Harle flicked a switch and this time a bolt of lightning leapt forth from the weapon The colt did not flinch, instead Shock leapt forward and caught the lightning in one hoof and it traveled through his body and out the other one, right back at harle! The griffon was thrown across the bar, smashing into the shelves behind it, several large bottles falling and hitting her int he head, knocking her out cold. "That was unfortunate... it seems we're going to have to make an example of this place" commented the colt uncaringly. Shock grinned psychotically as his hooves sparked and Rose mirrored the grin as she pulled out a hoof-full of sand... though Star did not show any emotion at all.. ---------- Dawn was crawling over the horizon, as it slowly cast its light across the remains of the tavern - little more than chard remains and broken boards, though it seemed all the other customers and staff had escaped... Harle groaned... she wasn't dead, but she wished she was... her head was pounding and before she even knew where she was, she knew that was a bad sign and no doubt the guards would be after her at any minute... but before she could process that her head went limp again as she slipped back into unconsciousness...
Jasper the Dragon The morning had been surprisingly quiet. The only real noise was the birds in the trees singing. Though that wouldn't last long... a now-slightly-more-familiar dragon walked through the streets to the park, a guitar case slung over his sholdier and a large square case on his claws, with a satchel slung across his sholdier. He made his way to under a tree and unslung the satchel and guitar, setting them and the case down on the grass. He opened the satchel and took a large cable from it, opening the case to reveal a suprisingly nice and well-cared-for Fetlock Pegacaster in a shade that matched his darker scales. he carefully plugging the cable into the bottom of the guitar and opened the large case to reveal a portable amp, which he plugged the other end of the cable into, flipping hte switches on the top, setting the volume to a surprisingly low 4/20 as he slipped the guitar around his sholdiers and sat down with his head very close to the amp, plucking a single string, then adjusting the tention, taking care to make sure all the strings were properly tuned Once it was tuned, he turned the speaker away from him and cranked it to 20 and hit a power chord The large flock of birds taking to the air from all around could be seen from across the town, and everyone in the park turned towards the dragon in the band shirt as he began to play, and sing, though the vocals were more than a little lost among the guitar... You're on your own! Such a d--- shame ,I'd have to break it to you! You're all alone! You oughta just stay quiet, You can't do that can you? Parading like you own the place But give it time we'll all forget your face! You're on your own! Such a d--- shame, No one's ever coming for you! (...) Needless to say parents were covering their foals' ears (and folding their own as tightly against their skulls as they could) while they hurried out of the park... When it finished jasper smiled to himself "and that is how we clear a room" he chuckled as he turned it back down to about half volume and began strumming again, though this time he seemed less like he was playing a full song as he was just going through some chords and bars trying to find a good sound.
It was a clear night, not a single cloud in the sky. The air was a little cool but barely needing a jacket yet. Winter was comming but it was still a ways off. in some places one could hear bats chirping as tehy made their nightly hunts, while the insects buzzed and chirped their own melody. But then, there was a bright twinkle in the sky, and everything fell silent. the bats fell silent, the insects fell silent, even the breeze stopped... then a loud whistling could be heared, followed by a bright almost blinding glow before... BOOM The hill was no more, dirt and rocks thrown in all directions, leaving behind a massive crater... and inside it was a still glowing chunk of rock.... It seems to almost call out to you... to everycreature.... what is it? where did it come from? what was going to happen...?
