    @Blitz Boom It was probably true, Rising Dusk should have just called it a day after helping the sisters out, but the detective was too far behind on his reports. Okay, probably not that far behind as it was very easy to fill out reports when one could remember every detail perfectly. It should have only taken him ten minutes to file what he had left over to do, but was three minutes too long before he apparently fell asleep. The little power nap really helped though and he recovered a fair bit. The detective bravely smiled on. Taking note of everything about the filly as she introduced herself and talked a little bit about what she brought. Body language, verbal ques and the like. Not all that uncommon for a pony to make such a request about wanting to watch the work. Mostly out of guilt and curiosity, but for the most part it didn't bother the unicorn. He glanced at the box, watching the weave come into view before him. This set applied to the box itself while whatever was inside remained unclear. For now he couldn't even determine if what was inside the box was magic or non-magic. Another thing common with lock boxes. That little added security, but sometimes what ends up being inside is just grandmare's pearls. Still, better to be on the side of caution. "I don't mind at," Rising Dusk simply replied and nodded as he turned to take Lily into the basement of the O.M.I. Scarlet waited to take the tightly guarded form from the visitor now that her request was met. "Scarlet, if you'll assist," the detective invited while he held the swinging doors open for the two. Whatever was inside the box could still be dangerous, and it'd be safe to have a little back up should the tired unicorn slip. In a mixture of both giddy and professional emotions the pegasus fought to keep herself from prancing in place. "Oh my gosh!" she started with excitement but stopped herself and cleared her throat. "Yes Sir!" she corrected and stood tall with pride, but trotted past him with a wide smile on her face and into the basement.
  3. Good morning everypony! :wub:  Or afternoon or evening, I dunno where I am anymore! ^_^

    I'm gonna leave flying to you pegasi from now on, this unicorn prefers his hoofs on the ground. :mlp_wat:

    But after 16 hours of flying, I'm finally back on US soil! :yay:

    @Blitz Boom Just as quickly as the wisp clipped the corner of the scry spell did it disappear all together. Losing its solid form and just as quickly its eternal form as the pony on the other end lost their concentration. Rising Dusk had sent a message, but considering the type of pony he was likely dealing with, it was a message they probably wouldn't receive well. Comes with the territory of being a servant of Equestria. With the scry spell dispersed the detective leaned down and blew on the paper bunny that had crumbled to ash with its purpose complete. Turning to head inside, he let out a heavy sigh. What had he gotten himself into? (An hour later.) The new visitor to the O.M.I. would be greeted by a different pony than the sisters. The red and silver maned pegasus Scarlet, wearing a white and silver sailor collar with teal tie, had taken post while Bash went for his lunch break. Well, greeted would be a strong word since she appeared distracted. Scarlet had propped up a book on her left where her attention was. On her right, her hooves worked trying to fold a piece of paper per the instructions of the book she was reading. Spurred by her senior's performance earlier pushed her to practice while she had time to spare. Although the folded paper looked nothing like a bunny. Keep practicing Scarlet. The introduction of a voice into the lobby of the O.M.I. caused her to jump though, wings spread as she hurried away the book and folded paper behind the desk. Folding her wings back and putting her hoofs together she cleared her throat and smiled. "Y-Yes it is! How can we help you?" she inquired and listened to what the purple pony had to say. "Well, we'll be sure to look at it!," the officer exclaimed and reached behind the desk to remove a form and pencil. Putting the items on the desk before getting up from the chair she sat on, "Please fill these out and I'll be right back." The pegasus disappeared through the double swinging doors that lead to the back office with a pep in her steps. Going to Rising Dusk's desk, happy to bring him a case, she could find her senior slumped over his desk. "ZzZzZ..." were the soft sounds that came from the unicorn that had laid his head upon the desk and the open book of his case logs splayed over his head to block out the light. Folding her ears down, she was lost on how to approach this. Her steps shuttered and her mouth opened several times trying to think of words. Reaching out to touch him, but stopping half way. "O-Oh my... Umm... Sir, there is a case that needs you," Scarlet whispered but did not rouse the midnight blue stallion. "Oh my, please wake up Sir," she quietly pleaded from her mentor. Bash had made his way down the walkway toward Rising Dusk's cubical, still chewing whatever he had been eating. Pulling the log book off the detective's head he slammed it shut with a resounding BOOM! Rising Dusk jumped out of his seat with a thud and even his chair fell over. Third time today he's ended up on the floor. At this point they should exchange addresses and write. Bash tossed the case log on the desk and silently wandered back to his lunch break. Scarlet looked both confused and mortified at what she just witnessed, but at least the detective was awake. Said detective was simple staring up at the ceiling again, "Ow..." Scarlet picked up his chair for him but the unicorn had already gotten himself back up into a sitting position before she could offer him aid. "S-Sir, you have a case! In the lobby," she finally managed to deliver and her smile returned along with perked up ears. Rubbing his head, Rising Dusk nodded and climbed to his hoofs to follow the pegasus back into the lobby. Entering the lobby the detective took in the sight of the visitor and her rather unique appearance not really seen in the city. Must be from out of town. "I'm Detective Rising Dusk, how can I help you?" he offered the best of smiles the tired pony could, but at least he managed to keep his head held high.

    @Blitz Boom Even though he couldn't say Null looked the most pleased with his request to extend the case and make it long term, her quick resignation was surprising to say the least. Ponyville huh? Home of Princess Twilight and the other bearers of Harmony. Not a place he's gotten to visit yet. It makes sense though that the troubled sisters of Troy would find a home there. Yes this task would take longer, but it would be the safest and most efficient way to remove their burden. With the letter from Princess Celestia, it wouldn't be very hard to schedule monthly departures to Ponyville from the Captain. Rising Dusk's ears shot up when Void shouted, but it wasn't at him, luckily. However, the wrath of the other sisters sure was and he didn't even say a word! He sure took flak for the blame though even if Null didn't know what Void was referring to. The detective though didn't react. Choice words would be given and he'd be ready for them. Hopefully they'd be much different than her tone now after Void was done talking with her in private. Granted she'd probably think it some sort of trap. A good chance for Void to finally step up there and put her hoof down, as a pony that seems to be having a more enjoyable experience in Equestria. Following the pair upstairs, he bit them farewell with a smile, "I'll be in touch. Please have a safe trip home." Standing in the lobby he watched as the sisters disappeared down the street. He wondered if they'd work on getting Null her wing or return to Ponyville to discuss it further. A worry for another time. His eyes glanced at sky from inside the warded building. One problem at a time. Wandering back through the lobby and to his desk to sit upon his chair. The work he needed to do was a bit different than the artifacts he had just dispelled with the sisters. Active spells were much different than magic that had been embedded on an object. Easier in a perspective, but often more dangerous. He opened a draw on the left side of the desk and removed a bright red piece of paper to place upon his desk top. Starting to fold the paper into different shapes when a red pegasus with a silver mane came soaring up to his desk with a panicked expression. "Sir! One of the security wards has triggered!" she exclaimed while fluttering behind him. Quickly she noticed what Rising Dusk was doing at his desk. "Oh, scry spell?" she inquired. The detective had finished folding the red piece of paper into the shape of a bunny. "Scry spell," he confirmed while getting up from his desk with the origami bunny in his mouth. Returning to the lobby through the swinging doors, Bash had turned a page of his paper without looking up. "Scry spell?" his gruff voice came from behind the newspaper. "Scry spell," came Dusk's response as he walked through the O.M.I's front doors. Tossing the paper bunny out onto the side walk. He looked up into the sky. Without a focus, the scry spell was an eternal mass that floated in the air above the O.M.I. Difficult to do anything about until it became... solid was the best term he could think of. Looking directly at the thin spell work in the sky, it wouldn't be hard for the pony on the other end to know he was looking right back at them. If only for the briefest moment as the purpose of the bunny was soon revealed. The paper had been soaked in a potent elixir that turned it into a tasty beacon for the scry spell to latch onto regardless of the original target after a short delay. This way, it forced the spell to focus a target and become solid for the detective. Sadly the only thing the pony on the other end would be looking at would be this adorable origami bunny no matter how hard they tried to move it. It only last a few minutes, but always made for a good distraction. Scry spells, this brought back memories of a rather nasty stalker case a year ago that was unhealthy for both victim and prey. With the spell now easy for Rising Dusk to see, he took a moment to memorize its signature. Familiar to him, and but different in subtle ways. Like how a student picks up mannerisms or hoof writing from their teachers after extended periods of them with them. With that done, it was time to get rid of it. While he could dispel it in a similar fashion to how he did with the artifacts in the basement, there were other more efficient ways to do it. Don't always need to kick in a locked door when one can pick the lock. Scry spells all had one thing in common, they required a great degree of concentration to maintain. Just the slightest slip up and the whole thing comes crumbling down. Then they have to go gather up all those ingredients for the spell all over again. His magic ignited with an orange glow and a single wisp did a lap around his horn before flying up to the weave hovering in the sky. Dusk's preferred way to dealing with a scry spell? The wisp clipped the lower right corner of the spell that sent a subtle backlash through the remote viewing magic. Well, subtle in that the pony on the other end will be feeling the strong sensation of being poked in the eye. Generally an effective way to break a pony's concentration.

    @Blitz Boom Understandable that the sisters would have at least attempted to turn the the large chunk of gold into spendable bits. With it dispelled, it shouldn't be all that big of an issue anymore for them to try again. Contrary to popular belief, trying to just destroy an enchanted artifact usually doesn't end well. Most the time the magic enchanting them either makes it difficult or impossible to do so, or the annoying backlash of a spell latching onto another object instead, or worse a pony. "With it dispelled now, you shouldn't have any further trouble in that regard," he explained while the heavy gold puzzle piece was put back away into the saddle back. Now with the concerns of Void who appeared to be very observant in noticing that the black wisps weren't behaving like they had before. Not that he considered it all that big of a problem, it was still best to explain that it was nothing for her to worry about. "No need to be concerned. The spell was such a mangled mess I had to be a little rough with unraveling it. I had to clip a few strands that caused a runaway of magic I needed to catch. Those were the wisps you saw stray from the mass." Hopefully that would ease her worry a little bit, but he wasn't all that sure it would. If this was going to be the pace he had to maintain, it was going to be quite rough on the unicorn. Rising Dusk was tired, which was noticeable of course with the slight slump in his shoulders and heavier eyes. He knew there were more, even more than what they brought with them to Manehatten. Having other duties he needed to attend to both here in the city and Equestria aboard, he couldn't devote himself full time to them. Luckily with his promotion, his movements outside the city were much easier. He could make house calls. "This is true. I won't be able to do this on a daily basis. Both from my other duties and the increase of fatigue will likely cause slip ups in the future," he concluded. While he had gotten better over the years of experience, he was far from perfect. New spells were created every day and he'd hardly scratched the surface of what was already out there. It was an ever evolving job, and not just in terms of magic, but crime in general. Getting up from his stool wasn't nearly as bad as yesterday, but he was slow to make sure his legs were ready to support him. Pushing his stool in it was about time for the wizards using the basement before to return. "I do not wish to keep you from your new home in Equestria. If it would be easier, I can come to you instead. Say, once a month for a few days? It would give me the necessary time for recovery and my other duties. It will just be a longer term case," he suggested. It wasn't fair to keep them here in the city after they were just getting settled in Equestria at their new home. Plus it would open up to Null the possibly taking the help from Molotov in regaining her flight without having to be here hoofing out cursed artifacts to the detective everyday. Rising Dusk invited the sister to accompany him back up stairs so that he could see them off. Glad that the last item didn't take everything out of him as he had a scry spell that needed dealing with.
