  1. @Blitz Boom The mare looked at them rather curiously, "I mean, I could boil some water for you, I don't have any boiling right now. And I think we should have a radish or beet, or two." She set about placing a medium sized pot in the sink to start filling with water, then proceeded to look around in the cabinets, finding a small sack of radishes and placing it on the central table away from her bread dough. "There you are, they're not the freshest but they're still good, probably." She then put the pot on one of the stoves and set it to boil. "So... what do you plan to do with this, soup? I'd be happy to make it for you if you like, no need for the Consul's guests to worry themselves with such things..." The mare seemed nervous for whatever reason, looking between the two of them, almost as if she recognized them from somewhere. If Void's shadow at any point intersected with another shadow the scepter would move over to it, the only indication of its presence being that the shadow was darker there that anywhere else.
  2. @Blitz Boom Their room had a fireplace, but it didn't have any wood unless they wanted to break down their furniture, then they still lacked a fire-starter. Most of the rooms they'd check would have the same problem, fireplace but no wood. They'd eventually reach the dining room where they'd shared dinner with the Consul, the room felt warmer than the ones they'd passed. There was a grand fireplace here, though it too was vacant of any wood. There was a sound of some commotion coming from another door that led into the dining room, and there was a bit of light peaking in from the edges of the doorway, it sounded like a kitchen almost. (If they decide to go in there) Though the lit doors there was a well lit and decently stocked kitchen area, a number of stoves stood against a wall across from a number of ice chests and cabinets, and bustling around the central table was a mare, earth pony, who seemed to be making some flat bread, she'd look up when they entered, a bit confused, "Um... Can I help you?" She'd stare at them for a moment before she'd realize something, "Oh! you're the Consul's guests aren't you? If you're looking for something to eat I'd be happy to help!" The whole time they were searching the scepter had been following behind them, but as they'd enter the kitchen it would jump into Void's shadow, careful to stay as far from her as it could without leaving her shadow. (Otherwise) They'd eventually run out of rooms that weren't locked, if they tried to go upstairs where the Consul and Selena had gone the scepter would stop at the edge of the light that came down them.
  3. @Randimaxis Luna's horn gave off a faint glow, then a beam of light extended from the eyepiece, expanding to form an image of what the telescope showed without having to squint through it. It wasn't as high quality, but they could at least both see it at the same time. "Interesting... It appears much like a dead star, but this expansion thou notest is intriguing. Perhaps it only recently perished? Then this cloud would be the remnants of it, a sort of ghost." She looked over at Dax, "We would appreciate if though wouldst continue to study this phenomenon. When we return to Canterlot we will review the old charts for the area, we expect that there used to be a star there." Illiad had made his way to the upper area of the observatory floor, and had been looking through one of the smaller telescopes when Dax looked for him, he turned to look over the balcony railing when he felt Dax's enthusiasm, giving him a look of approval as he motioned for Dax to continue. "Now," Luna stirred from her thoughts, "We think thou wouldst enjoy to see this." With a glow of her horn she set the telescope in motion, operating some of the larger mechanisms in the process to drastically turn and angle the telescope until it pointed right at the moon. "It's not full, but we should still see..." she peered directly into the eyepiece as she focused it in. "Huzzah!" She stood back with a pleased grin, restoring the image she had projected the first time: It looked to be the surface of the moon, only in much greater detail than Dax had ever seen it before, it was faint, but there was the faint silhouette of a pony there in the dust, further there were hoofprints leading away from it, and walking all over. "Well? What thinkest thou?"
  4. @Blitz Boom "Fire works, body heat is most common but won't really work for you two, the Sun is a definite no, solar magic is very harmful to scepters, which is probably why it has stayed here since the sun came up. Steam typically works best, it was my king's favorite at least." The scepter looked confused at their talking, as emphasized by the now slanted question mark it formed. "It's curious why you're talking about it rather than to it, it remembers you talked to it last time... How you managed that is beyond me."
  5. @Blitz Boom "I can hear your sister just fine without her talking right in your ear. But I think you know that already. I used to get along with Mercy quite well thank you." There wasn't much to see as they made their way back, the guards wouldn't stop them as they entered and the place was just as empty as before, though it was somewhat brighter now that there was a bit more sunlight filtering in through the windows. There wasn't anything different about their room, except that the scepter was there somewhat hidden in the corner shadows. When they entered it waved to them and started to do some sort of charades, the humming that Null had faintly heard earlier was now a bit more obvious, though Void would only be able to hear it faintly. "It missed you..." Null would get the impression that Nine would roll its eyes if it had any, "But anyway, it wants to know if you've found any 'magic metal', or heat, it's hungry." Nine sighed, "What's a tiny thing like it doing so far from a king anyway? Hardly five years old I'd bet." To Void the shapes were something like a teardrop, then a map, then the ingot from before, then a question mark, then a fire followed by another question mark.
  6. @Blitz Boom Their father moved to close the door behind them, bidding them a fond farewell before returning to whatever it was he was doing when they had arrived. Outside, as they moved it was clear that the city had been built with space at a premium, the buildings each standing one right after the other, only separated by roadway for the most part. If they walked back in the direction of the Consul's estate they'd find that there were some shadowed spaces between the re-purposed buildings next to the Trojan Council building. Otherwise, there was plenty of shade on the shade side of the buildings as the sun wasn't directly overhead yet. In either of these cases they wouldn't be seeing the shadow creatures from before. There was however a near inaudible humming sound that only Null would be able to hear, and subsequently Nine would speak to her in her head. "There's a scepter looking for you... or something. Don't know what they intend to accomplish when you don't know our language. I think it's back where Mercy is."
  7. @Blitz Boom As content as their father would be to simply hold his long lost daughter, he knew if he didn't get back to bed soon he'd end up sleeping right there. And with each passing second the thought of that grew ever more tempting. Regardless, he gently released Null, "Now, we heard you two have something special to do for the Consul... staying up all day likely isn't the best way to prepare for it, you both look like you've missed more than a few nights sleep recently." he stood up with a yawn, "You're welcome to sleep here of course, space is at a bit of a premium but we'll make do. You'll have to come visit your mother after her shift in any case, she'll be so happy to see you back." Their father trailed off a bit, he seemed to be almost falling asleep on his hooves, and probably would if they didn't do anything about it.
  8. @Blitz Boom Their father looked on with concern as Null spoke her piece, he thought a moment on what exactly he could say to her, opening his mouth a few times in the process before closing it again as he rethought his words. He took a deep breath to compose himself before speaking. "Null," he waited a moment to see if she'd turn to look at him. "When we decided to get the two of you out of there... we knew what was at stake. We knew we'd likely die trying, but we couldn't live with ourselves if we didn't try." he shook his head, "We were both surprised when Grey Mane didn't have us killed, or inducted... but we didn't have long to think on that before he sent us back to TrUST to have us removed their way, and thus the whole memory thing. But that's besides the point. Even if we had made it to Dodge with you, we knew we couldn't stay with you, we'd have just made you easier to find." He sighed as the tears continued to fall, "Really it should be us apologizing to you, we forced you to take that burden, you never should have had to make those decisions, we should have planned better, been more patient..." He paused for a moment, as a smile grew on his face, "But that's behind us now isn't it? It's been too long to hold on to that any more. Last week my family was just two with a third on the way, and now it's about doubled in size! My daughters, once lost, are found. It's a rare treasure in these times, let's enjoy it together." He looked like he wanted to say more, but decided thatadditional physical affection would speak more to her that his words.
  9. @Blitz Boom There was a tear in their father's eye as he cautiously, then firmly drew Null into a hug. "Your mother and I... we were so worried when you were all..." He released her from the hug to get a better look at her, staring right into her eyes with a worried, yet somewhat relieved expression. "We were happy to have you two back in whatever state. It will make her so happy to hear that you've been recovering. Nonetheless, she needs her sleep, so I'll patiently wait to tell her until evening." A smile came to his face. He sat down, "I... hadn't really thought you'd make it, I know you're strong of course but when we saw you like that..." he sighed "We've seen so many who didn't have it half as bad who've yet to make even half the progress you have. It's a miracle to say the least."
  10. @Blitz Boom It was quiet for a moment, almost so long that they might consider either knocking again or giving up on the endeavor, when there'd be the sound of shuffling hoofsteps from within. As their father approached the door the sounds of his muttering could faintly be heard, but not loud enough to tell exactly what he was saying until he swung the door open. "Whatzit now Ceder, ya know she-s sleep...ing." His voice trailed off as he saw exactly who was at the door, he shook himself a bit more awake. "[However he'd casually greet them]! I thought you'd be staying with the Consul... did something happen?" The worry in his voice was apparent, and he kept looking between the two of them, a bit of confusion coming to his face as nothing seemed the matter. He motioned for them to come in, and gestured to the worn couch that dominated the small living space. He spoke in a whisper, "Let's try not to wake your mom though... the pregnancy's tough enough without these hours we've been pulling at the hospital and field stations. But anyway, what's happened?"
  11. @Jedishy If I had to guess: The assigned padawan is likely playing off of Anakin in The Clone Wars. @Skycoaster Here's a character for your approval: Novus Kin'Dra Zebra, Male, 23. Jedi Consular, wields a collapsible Lightsaber Pike with a copper blade. Was initially raised by Twi'Leks before he was inducted by the Jedi Order, and learned under a Twi'Lek Master. As such he wears his mane in two long braids stylized like the Lekku of his care givers and master. Any other details you need let me know!
  12. @Blitz Boom The buck looked over a bit skeptically at Null, but only offered a sigh in response to their query before turning to look through a nearby book. He would pass a few moments paging through the book before turning back to face them, the book held in his magic. He didn't say anything as he passed the book over the counter to them, pointing to their mother's name. It was a schedule book, it seemed to indicate who was on schedule to work, and their mother wasn't scheduled to come in until just before dusk, which judging by the sun, was in six hours. The buck left that book as he turned to look through another book, it was thicker, before with a satisfied snort he turned back and placed the new book atop the old, pointing again to their mother's name. It read: 'Septicity Bunsen; 200 3rd, apt 13'. The buck looked at them for a moment more, then pulled out a piece of paper and a pencil, marked the symbol of the hospital, a line that went to one side of it, turning right at a corner, then a star where he wrote 200. It seemed to be a map of sorts telling them essentially to go up to third street, then turn right and go till they found #200. He would continue to watch them with a raised eyebrow until they left. (If they go to follow his map) The streets were still quite vacant, making the trek easy. The buildings got taller the further they got from the oasis, some of the ones they passed looked like they had been added on to vertically, somewhat makeshift tents erected on the roofs of the buildings. They'd be able to find #200 without much difficulty, and the door labeled #13 was on the close corner to them. There was a window next to the door, and it was dark inside.
  13. @Blitz Boom Outside the streets were mostly deserted, the sun was already fully above the wall and while it was still early it was starting to warm up. The guards were both wearing an Equestrian day guard helm, so thus were likely more inclined to the day anyway. The guard they had approached was an earth pony mare, "Bunsen..." she thought for a moment. "He's a medic right? They're typically housed near the hospital, and the hospital staff would have a directory." She pointed to a road about half way to the far side of the central oasis, "Head around to 5π/4th road, hospital's on the corner between 2nd and 3rd. They can tell you where to find them. Plus most of the injured that came in from the last desert convoy are there, at least those that aren't still out with the field medics on the air strip." (provided they follow those directions) Walking the main road around the oasis they'd first pass a somewhat clover shaped building with many windows and columns which was labeled with a marble sign out front as the Trojan Council Chambers. They would then pass a large building surrounded by smaller buildings, the large building labeled atop the pillars as the Trojan Supreme Court, the smaller buildings appeared to be residential, but it seemed they hadn't always been that way. The corner past that building was the indicated street, turning up it would reveal a residential block, followed by the indicated hospital. It was an unremarkable building, clearly built with function in mind with little thought for aesthetic. It bore the hospital symbol clearly. (Should they enter the building) The reception area was surprisingly crowded given the vacancy of the streets, though most of the occupation was temporary beds and dividers set up to house extra patients, most of which were asleep. There was plenty of room for them to pass to the reception desk without their aura affecting the patients. Stationed at the desk was a buck, dressed in medical garb, typing out paperwork on a sophisticated looking typewriter. He would look up as they entered but would not address them unless they either spoke up, or loitered at the counter long enough. By the points on his antlers he wasn't very old.
  14. @Blitz Boom The only issue with their plan, was that they had no idea where their parents were, all they knew was that they lived here in the city, and were in the process of being moved to a larger dwelling. The hallways were, as before, vacant of anyone they could ask. They could either go to the Consul and ask, or go outside and look for themselves. (If they go outside) The guards out front were different from the ones that Null had seen when she had previously left the building, and they would not react to their presence unless the sisters did something to get their attention.
  15. @Sweet Scoop No worries! I was expecting a much longer wait anyway. I think I have a character that would fit then, I have a sheet for her, but it shows her younger than she would be in this story: At the time of this RP she'd have established and lost her hive due to the apocalyptic conditions, all her children dead due to the lack of ponies and water, plus the pony she loved. Unable to die but weakened by the lack of food, her only desire is to see her dear husband again, whether by his resurrection by Scorched, or by her own demise in the tasks. (She can't starve to death, but can easily be killed while so weakened.) She'd now be about 20-25, which while very young for a changeling queen is still quite mature. She'd reached her full size, so the same proportions as Chrysalis. Let me know if that works for you, I'm more than willing to make changes if needed.
