[colour=#ff0000]"Ah sure hope everypony's impressed with mah new costume this year."[/colour][colour=#000000] Applejack stuffed her scare crow costume full of extra hay. Sure, it was the same scarecrow she had worn for the last six years in a row. But she felt she worn it better than anypony else. And besides, maybe there was a bit of superstition set in Applejack's mind. No scary crows were gonna get her mane in a tangle.

Apples. The main ingredient for Applejack's annual apple bob setup. Of course, practically anything Applejack produced had apples at it's core. And a core was at the center of every apple. It always came full circle. Crispy. Crunchy. Fresh. Juicy. Apples. And water. Three tubs of water. Applejack had scooted out three tubs of water, and put about a half dozen apples on top for them to float. It was apple bobbing time. And at the town center where the annual Nightmare Night festivities were held, Applejack was in charge of this section of the celebration. It included apple bobbing, spider tossing, and pumpkin launching. Anypony of any age would have fun. And on top of that, Applejack had several treats as prizes, and were also available for sale as well.[/colour]

Cloudchaser had a smile on her face. Nightmare Night had to be one of her favorite times of year. With the costumes, candy, parties and scares, it really was an all around fun event each year. With it always came surprises, particularly in seeing what costumes everypony would choose to wear. Cloudchaser always had a particularly difficult time deciding just this herself. In the past, she had gone as a zombie, a fearsome dragon, a banana, Daring Do and even Princess Celestia, among others. This year, she just wasn't able to come to any kind of decision as to what she wanted to be in time, and hadn't been able to get a new costume...

As a result, that Nightmare Night Ponyville would see a banana-bodied zombie alicorn with dragon spikes and claws in a Daring Do hat and vest enjoying the local festivities. Cloudchaser wasn't entirely sure about the costume, as she hadn't really bounced her pans off of anypony, including Flitter, but she was pretty sure she looked great. All her costumes had been awesome after all, so combining them together had to just make everything even more awesome--even if she wasn't quite sure if she was supposed to act scary, awesome, or tasty. Not that it particularly mattered. She was sure to have fun regardless.

Looking for some new fun amongst the celebration, Chaser looked about until her eyes settled upon a scarecrow standing near some tubs full of water and apples. Apple bobbing! That was fun! The carefree pegasus mare gave a nod and rushed over toward the scarecrow, who she recognized to be the mare from the local apple farm, Sweet Apple Acres. What was her name again? She was Dash's friend, right? Cloudchaser was always kinda bad with these kinds of things.

[colour=#ffffff]"Ooh, I want to try! Bobbing for apples is fun!"[/colour] she started cheerfully. [colour=#ffffff]"Especially if I get to eat the apples I bob..."[/colour] she added with a nod. [colour=#ffffff]"They're tasty!"[/colour]

Nightmare Night was a special night for Penumbra Dewdrop, seeing as it was one of the few times of the year where the majority of ponies schedules actually coincided with her own. Around the time the festivities began in earnest, when twilight was beginning to fall, was when Penumbra's body preferred she wake up. So everypony in Equestria who celebrated the night dedicated to Princess Luna was up and about, it was the perfect time for Penumbra to make new friends and see new places without one of the two parties being tired due to not being up at the times they were supposed to be up. Penumbra had decided to forgo Canterlot this time, however. She had woken up early in the afternoon, to prepare her costume and catch the last train to Ponyville. She figured in such a small friendly town, she had a better chance of finding a pony to get along with.

The little mare of the night was appropriately dressed as the great mare of the night, Princess Luna herself. Well, Nightmare Moon technically, since that was more suitable to the vein of the celebrations, scary and such. She had pulled it off with some decent skill, her faked horn was made quite well, proportionally accurate. She had the cobalt armoring, the headpiece, the hoofplates, the neckpiece. Her gray hair was light enough to where she could dye it and illuminate it- rather artistically- with some help from one of her unicorn friends. Her cutie mark was painted over, the crescent moon of her actual cutie mark incorporated into the one Nightmare Moon wore on her flank. Where Penumbra fell short was in her body type, she was smaller in general and the effect was somewhat silly, especially as she was lanky and thin for a mare already too small to play the part.

Penumbra now trotted through the clouds, put on her best haughtily evil air, hoofsteps slow, deliberate, her eyes giving other ponies expressions of ire. It was a bit exaggerated perhaps, but Penumbra wanted to go all out with the costume. It was her night of the year, virtually, and she intended to make the most of it. So she played it up, gave it her all, ate just a little bit of ham with her style. If it entertained others, it would be all worth it. She trotted her way over to a section of Ponyville that seemed to have been set aside for the playing of games , the usual ones, the spiders, the apple bobbing, the... pumpkin catapult? That one was new to her. A few mares were already congregating around the apple bobbing, a scarecrow and... something or another.

[colour=#0000cd]"Ahem. Your Queen of the Night has arrived." [/colour][colour=#000000]Penumbra's disaffected countenance broke for a moment as she snickered. She loved this chance to act out for just one night. [/colour][colour=#000000]She actually had a fair voice to imitate Luna's dark side, low as it was. [/colour][colour=#0000cd]"What games do we engage in?"[/colour]

[colour=#ff0000]"Yes ma'am!" [/colour][colour=#000000] Applejack boomed towards the excited pegasus. [/colour][colour=#ff0000]"Bob to your heart's contempt, and keep the apple if you want it. But, if you do get one, you get to grab one of Sweet Apple Acres signature candy apples with you as well!" [/colour][colour=#000000] Applejack smiled smugly. [/colour][colour=#ff0000] "Or, if ya'll prissy ponies don't want to get your mane wet, you can always buy one at a fair price."[/colour]

[colour=#000000]And then Nightmare Moon entered. As soon as the tall pegasus with what looks like a pretty frail-looking horn slammed onto the ground, Applejack jumped with a moment of fear. She cowards down and covered her eyes. But when she peaked, she could noticed that this was not a return of Nightmare Moon in the flesh, but rather a return in parody. She rose. [/colour][colour=#ff0000] "Heh, jeepers, I almost fainted. Nice costume, missy!"[/colour][colour=#000000] Applejack walked up to the well-costumed mare, wanting to play along. [/colour][colour=#ff0000] "Well, sure Princess, I mean Nightmare Moon. We gots all kinds of games. We got apple bobbin', pumpkin launchin', spahder tossin'. Take your pick!"[/colour]

(( Wait what are the links for? ))

Penumbra broke character for a moment with a giggle and a big smile, beside herself with her success, enjoying her playacting. [colour=#808080]"Am I really that good?" [/colour][colour=#000000]Her voice reverted to normal for a moment there, a pretty happy voice, with a bit of a bass squeak. [/colour][colour=#808080]"Thank you so much, the both of you look great as well! Oh, uh, I mean..." [/colour][colour=#000000]She coughed, picked up her momentum again after a moment out of character. [/colour]Penumbra's grasp of her character was so strong that she sneered slightly when she was called 'Princess', snorted. [colour=#000080]"You caught yourself in time, little pony. I would have had your head for that slip." [/colour][colour=#000000]Voice dripping with ire, Penumbra decided she'd take the time to learn something new while she could. [/colour][colour=#000080]"Explain to me what I shall do with these pumpkins you speak of. Quickly now, I don't have all night."[/colour]
