Time to post the results of Tuesday's game! And the winner by default for getting the most correct answers is... @DivineNightmare1000!
And the runners up... @Stone Cold Steve Tuna gets the million golden coin award, & @TomDaBombMLP gets the rock-solid friend award!
Next time on Real or Fake, we'll play the Chaotic Creature Edition.
Take care, my crowd. And have plenty of frights.
You're all amazing! I feel the same about all of you.
*Turns off the superhero music* Oh, hey there my crowd, how goes it?
Sad to say the weather has been warming up. We had icy snow one day, then it heated up to the point where it all melted. I still wanted it to stay cool; I'm so tired of hot summer weather. But nature's gonna do what nature's gonna do.
Ultimately, I decided to schedule that last operation after all. I've been feeling that pain in my side returning, and it's been sticking around for a few days. I hadn't thought of this as a possibility. I can't live with it if the pain is just going to be constant for a few days. I hate to pay for more medical work done, but there comes an eventual breaking point. And if the hospital accepts tiny monthly payments, what's a little more on my tab going to hurt?

We are currently at a tie vote, so I could really use a tie-breaker.
That's it for now. Not feeling like my 100% usual self, so I'm going to log off early and get to bed.
Goodnight my crowd, and take care.
The feeling's mutual. my friends.
@Dynamo Pad, @Pastel Heart, @C. Thunder Dash In Level 2, It takes him a hot second, but Trilby re-mounts his raptor and leads the way again. Along the way, he answers questions. First, he shrugs when Thundy asks him a about the boss. "No idea. I didn't look in the cave. I was afraid that if I spotted the boss, it would trigger the fight, and I don't want to get stuck in a boss fight all by myself." Trilby explains. "In good news... I was right! I used my staff as a homing beacon, and I can feel myself getting closer to it! We'll be back at that cave in no time." He also turns to Dynamo to answer his questions. "I do have magic, but it seems to be suppressed in this video game. I'm limited only to what this Cleric character can do. And even if that wasn't the case, I don't know much magic outside of this game, just enough to keep being a haberdasher. I would have used up all my magic reserves LONG ago if that's all I had in this game." Trilby explains. The cave is waiting for them. It is a downward shaft with rounded walls. And occasionally, spikes pop out of the walls in random places. Not impossible to avoid, but they might tear up a few vehicle tires if you're not careful. Daring Decor is waiting for them at the end of the cave. "They're getting closer, I can feel it..." @ExplosionMare. @Windy Breeze, @C. Thunder Dash, @GeneralDirection, @PawelS In the bonus level, It seems everyone was teaming up. Elusive Facts had a pretty good start, collecting the proper construction bricks that were in plain sight and a few that were hidden. But now she is slowing down because she hates to get her hooves dirty. For some reason, a random villager has a block that she needs for her tower, and he's trying to barter for it. "Oof." He says. "What do you mean, you want two diamond blocks for it?!" Elusive asks. "Oof." He explains. "What do you mean you're giving away free obsidian?! How does that help me right now?" She asks. "Oof." He explains. "I don't... Really? I'd get three chickens out of it? I suppose that's not a bad deal. But what about the cow?" She continues to barter with him. At least Chelsea is better at puzzles that she is. They are sharing a tower, so that helps, but they aren't in the lead anymore, but only by a small difference. Pencil and Silver have all ready begun to surpass Elusive and Chelsea's progress. At this point, the two of them might finish their towers first! And since Tree Song just got started, the tower she and Shadow share is falling behind. But the game isn't over yet! With enough resourcefulness and with enough desperation, anyone could change the outcome of this race!
I like Celestia. Can't you tell?

Here we go again! Last time...Spoiler
"TWILIGHT!" Pinkie Pie pops up seemingly out of nowhere with a shout. "Pinkie! You startled me." Twilight comments. "No time for that, Twilight! We have an emergency, and I need your help!" Pinkie expresses herself by bouncing around, though she has a look of dread on her face. "What's wrong, Pinkie?!" ... What's wrong indeed?
A] Friendship Problem
B] Family Problem
C] Party Problem
D] False alarm, for Twilight at least
And by popular vote, the winner is C!
Let's see the story continue to part 3...
"No time for that!! EMERGENCY!!!" Without answering Twilight's question, Pinkie grabs Twilight's hoof. "PINK--!" Twilight's words fade away instantly when Pinkie run off like a Delorean hitting 88 MPH.
"--IE! Wooaaah~!" Twilight comes to a sudden and dizzying stop when Pinkie arrives at Sugarcube Corner's party room. Twilight has to adjust herself. "Could have just teleported, you know..." Twilight mumbles to herself, understandably annoyed. It's then that the decor of this room really registers. It's set up for a party! There's balloons, streamers, sweets, party hats, etc. "See?! What did I tell you, Twilight! Pure emergency in here." Pinkie explains, still freaking out. "Emergency? It looks like a party! What's the occasion?" Twilight asks. "That's just it! It looks like a party, but it's not yet! Something horrible is happening! This was suppose to be surprise party for Gummy, but then my tail did a twitchy-twitch, then my ears started to flop, and I got craaaazy swirly doo's in my eyes, and then I had to lay down on my back for a while which wasn't too bad because..."
As Pinkie Pie goes off on a long-winded rant, Twilight's worry turns into hyper-focus. "Okay, Twilight, think! You took a crash course in Pinkie Sense. What does all this mean again? Tail twitch, ears flopping..." Twilight thinks to herself, trying to analyze everything Pinkie is saying. "...and then I had a lemonade break to stop the sneezing. And that's when I realized... GUMMY IS MISSING!!! What do I do?!" Pinkie finishes, waiting for a solution. However, before she can answer, a chaotic portal opens up and Discord steps through, joining them both. "Perhaps I can help?" ...What does Discord do?
A] Make things worse
B] Solve the problem
C] Make Fluttershy fix it
D] Nothing, because all of this is his fault!
Results every Wednesday and Saturday.
It's been cold here, but also starting to warm up. Just yesterday, there was snow and ice! It's warmed up to the point where it's all melted, but it was still cold. Here's hoping it won't warm up too much further.
Goodnight, my crowd. Take care.
I've got no problem with that, but since each character has an attack that does damage, there is hardly a need. Those attacks can do all the mining you need without the need for a pickaxe or anything. Unless you just really want to make one, in which case, have fun!
@Dynamo Pad, @Pastel Heart, @C. Thunder Dash, @CameoShadowness In Level 2, Trilby was about to help Dynamo with Pastel, but the situation seems to have resolved itself. With a kiss, no less! Trilby gives them a thumbs up. ... Is he approving the shipping, or approving Pastel being safe now? Either way, he approves. However, Thundy was a different case. "Curse me for not picking a flight-capable character..." Taking a page from a mustachioed plumber, Trilby makes his raptor run up to a tree at full speed, and then bounce off it to get as much height at possible. At the top of the raptor's jump, Trilby leaps off it like a trampoline, gaining even more height! He may have had to ditch the raptor, but it somehow pays off! Just barely, though... Trilby almost missed. But he got close enough to Thundy that he was able to grab him by the leg, pull up his power shield, and have a safe-ish landing down below. Thundy is now Roc free! And for good measure, Trilby drops the shield and heals Thundy. "Don't ever ask me to do that again because that was SCARY~!!" Trilby shows his true colors, quaking in his character's boots before chasing down the raptor he ditched earlier. Once more, from the top, to the cave they go! @ExplosionMare. @Windy Breeze, @C. Thunder Dash, @GeneralDirection, @PawelS In the bonus level, Elusive was quickly running out of places where material blocks were just out in the open. She would have to do some deeper digging/mining to get them; something she really didn't want to do. "Tch..." Then she sees a ravine and notices some blocks in their. Eh, what else has she got to lose? Rolling up on the shore, she summons her giant speaks and microphone, and gives an ear-piercing screech; wailing out those screaming tones! And with the speakers amplifying her voice, somehow it works! The blast of sound makes the water bounce up into the air. And before it can come down, Elusive Facts makes the speakers and mic disappear, rides down to the ravine bed on her motorcycle, collects blocks with her whip, and gets out of the way just in time to avoid the water as it comes splashing down! She rides over to her own personal tower mount once more and places the blocks, but she is noticing a bunch of those puzzles attacked to the tower as well. "Ugh... Critical thinking?" Elusive pouts. She looks at the towers the others are working on. At least Pencil is making SOME progress with the puzzles! Way more than she was... "RAAHH!!!" She tries smacking the puzzle with her microphone stand and a few kicks. Nothing. "...I hate puzzles."

@DivineNightmare1000 Sorry buddy, but 5 and 8 are real. Maybe if you swap your answers for 5 and 6, as well as your answers for 8 and 9, then you might just win. *Hint, hint*
Either way, you get 3204 participation points, and 91 awesome friend points.
Also, YOU'RE AWESOME & AMAZING TOO!!! And I'm sure Celestia loves you too.
@Stone Cold Steve Tuna Pretty sure it's the Wicked Witch of the West... 2079 participation points, and 60 Super Mario points.
@TomDaBombMLP That's perfectly fine. Thanks for commenting and making an appearance. And for commenting, you still get 8730 participation points and 14 consideration points.
Well, things have been changing between some of our participants, and I might need more active party members. So... Congrats, you've been promoted. You're no longer an NPC that is forbidden from engaging in the game.
@Dynamo Pad, @Pastel Heart, @C. Thunder Dash, @CameoShadowness In Level 2, It takes a moment for Trilby to get close to them all, but he does. He slows his raptor down and he sees the three of them facing off against... something. They are facing off against an invisible beast, but to Trilby, they might as well be doing interpretive dance. "...What are you all doing, charades?! Dynamo, I found the cave that'll lead us to the boss! Whatever you're all fighting, forget about it! We can lose it on the way to the cave. Just follow me, please! I think I can lead us back there." Trilby turns his raptor around and leads the way. It might seem wreckless to just abandon this part of the level, but maybe they can lose or shake off the Rocs on the way to the cave. @ExplosionMare. @Windy Breeze, @C. Thunder Dash, @GeneralDirection, @PawelS In the skybound hubworld, It worked! Elusive is so happy as she makes her microphone disappear. "Ms. Tree Song, you are a perfect guardian. When all this is over, I'll treat you to a tour of the news station." Elusive says. Leading the way, Elusive Facts steps through the portal with Chelsea, Shadow, Pencil and Silver. BONUS GAME: TOWER BUILDER! RACE TO BUILD THE TALLEST TOWER! The party soon find themselves in a big, open field with miles of unexplored grasslands, hills, caves, small houses, a few small lakes and ravines, and so on. And oddly enough, it looks kind of similar to Minecraft. And scattered among the the land is various construction blocks. Some are in plain sight, others you might have to do some digging around or exploring. At the center of this open-world are three big blocky mounds that could turn into metal towers, eventually. They also have a few puzzles on them, similar to rubik's cube puzzles. Solve them, and the towers will gain height and form. Elusive Facts looks around and smiles. "A race? Put a tower together? Now THIS is my kind of challenge! Good luck, everyone else! You're gonna have to bring your A-game if you want to finish a tower before me." With her confidence restored, Elusive Facts summons her motorcycle and drives off. Summoning her whip, she uses it to grab and dig for construction blocks, and throws them at the center tower. The items automatically latch on and start building the tower up taller! It really is as easy as Minecraft. Mine for the blocks, place them anywhere on the unfinished tower of your choice, and keep going! And Elusive is really good at this so far. She's grabbing lots of blocks left and right.

How is everyone doing? Things have been mostly good over here for me.
I just updated my LiveJournal again. Now that I've covered the TV show and all three movies, I can start making fun posts.
Today was my mother's last day before the hospital she works at changes ownership. Tomorrow, new practices, new uniforms, and probably some learning and adjustments.
Take care, my crowd.
