  4. @Blitz Boom It appeared like actual magic when a magic sucking centaur came stomping through Equestria and ate it all up. Crops couldn't grow and the skies became a raging mess when the Earth Ponies and Pegasi didn't do their thing. Maybe not a flashy as one that wields the arcane, but their magic is just as important to making Equestria run smoothly. Lily's disappointment was understandable, the division of the ponies races across the world wasn't as far apart as he thought. Even if Harrowmark had the arcane seep into their ponies and did not for Equestria. A lesson from Harrowmark can be learned as more and more ponies in his own land come to use artifacts of the arcane in the mix of their technology. A wholesome weave appeared before the detective as Lily cast her own spell in response. Earthy toned threads sticking together a tapestry that spun the arcane into a spell that cause one of the nearby exotic bouquets on the table to grow further. Attention from the party had wandered their way again as their host lifted the buffet and the mystery guest was making plants grow. More importantly for them, seeing an Earth Pony use magic without a horn or artifact. Dawn didn't even have to try and she brought something rare for these high society ponies to witness. A sharp look over her shoulder from their host cast them away though, after she felt the small wariness radiate from her twin. Lily wasn't to be a side show attraction under her roof. Stallion and mare alike appeared most content with this and promptly returned to their previous activities. "It sounds like a lot can be learned from Harrowmark," Dawn commented but Rising could already feel his sister salivating over the idea of gaining new knowledge. In his twin's world, knowledge was true power and for her to stake an early claim was too fruitful for her to pass up. Rising rolled his eyes. A lot of things could indeed be learned from Harrowmark, a lot of dangerous things. The O.M.I. needed to get bigger, faster before those borders were crossed. The growing use of artifacts created by inexperienced unicorns was already a problem, then having darker things pass into their land of light.

      I'm doing alright on my end. :adorkable: My state in Australia has started taking action of the virus as well, ensuring social distance, temporarily closing down all schools, inessential stores and buildings such as cinemas and gyms, restuarantsacn only serve takeaway, and it looks like a lockdown is going to happen. :sealed: Not much of a change for me though because I literally never leave my house nowadays. :maud:

      I hope you have an awesome Tuesday today and remember to stay safe! :kindness:

  9. @Blitz Boom Lily was sure right about that. Earth Pony and Pegasi wielding the arcane was quite new to the land of Equestria. Harrowmark may of had many of years, decades or even centuries to fine tune such crafts, but his land had not see it used to these extremes until recently. Now of course an non-unicorn might stumble across an enchanted artifact from time to time and use, not always with much success, these days it evolved from rare to uncommon. Unicorns weren't the only one misusing magic anymore, making for much busier lives at the O.M.I. Rising had dealt with his fair share of unicorns selling illegal charms, or when a non-unicorn did make a legal purchase, would then use it for wrong doing. Luckily most cases were an issue of accident rather than malicious, but even then these kinds of cases were more the realm of the second team than his own. Usually he'd be asked to dispel the enchantment at the end if it was deemed the pony couldn't keep it anymore. "I know all to well," the detective sighed. One more recent case a unicorn simply slipped on the spell to a local sweet shop's order taker owned by a small Pegasi family. As the shop thrived on making deliveries, they had commissioned an enchantment to their printing press for their fliers. A customer could take a flier home, it would automatically update with the special they created for that day from the master flier. Simply tap on the flier's printed sigils and their order would be placed. A bit of a complicated spell to ensure orders weren't accidentally made by a pet walking over it, or something falling on it, and to get the locations right. The unicorn just wasn't quite as prepared for it as she thought. Everytime a pony made an order, the master flier duplicated itself. Spitting out pages and pages, flinging them all over the bakery, so many fliers, he feel paper cuts just thinking about it. Rather than make a big deal out of it though, Rising simply fixed the spell on the printing press and Gold Mane gave the young unicorn a lecture on not accepting commissions they aren't ready for yet. "No, not other school per say. Earth Pony tend the earth and can make crops grow like no other pony species. They are innately more strong... Beyond simply muscle... and have higher stamina than any of us. Pegasi likewise tend to the sky... They control the weather, put simply... Wielding clouds, the rain, the snow, the wind... as effortlessly as we pick up a spoon," the twins spoke in a weaving manner to carry on the topic, Dawn emphasizing her point by causing the buffet to levitate off the floor for a moment before setting it back down. Mild overkill from her statement, but the effort for her was at least equal. Rising nodded to her point of a natural retraction to keep Wisp safe. Good to know using her name wouldn't invoke a curse or anything though. Mana paper was hard to make and he didn't want to keep using it up.
  10. Good morning everypony.  How's it going? :nom:

      Yeah, they place the other online and select curbside pickup instead of shipping. It is tiring but we had a good system to make it run smoothly. :grin: I haven’t picked up Doom but I’m going to wait on it. 
      It’s sad you can’t see the cherry blossoms from your place. They would make a great view. :pout:

      @Rising Dusk Just this week. Classes are not running all week, so I have more free time. :yay: Next week though, things will be running online. :) Still, that's beats attending physical classes. I get to study and do work in the comfort of my own home, surrounded by ponies! :love:

  11. @Blitz Boom A blood curse did not have the most fabulous of tones to it. Dawn's eyes when wide for a moment while the idea of some sort of curse or diseases ran through her body. Quick glances to her body as if such a thing could be seen from the outside. Like the phantom feel of ants crawling over one's body when they talk about them. "You... would be able to see such a thing, yes?" the older twin asked her brother. Rising lulled his head to the side, looking his sister from mane to tail. Beyond the usual weaves of enchantment his sister wore, he saw nothing. Not that he'd seen anything throughout their life that would mark them like a curse normally would. Blood curse was likely just what Harrowmark referred to as recessive. Even their father could draw their linage so far bad. Who knows if some ancient power lie dormant inside the twins from before the time of Starswirl. As if he'd tell her a spider was crawling on her, "I dunno," he lazily replied before straightening his head back up. Dawn's cheeks puffed with annoyance, but deep down she knew if they had so curse laid upon them, it wouldn't be something he'd keep to himself like so. His causal demeanor to the idea was enough to quell her worry, "So infuriating" she huffed. Rising simply smirked. "Fine, we'll go with chance. I'm not sure I could call magic in Equestria as an infection. It's more, uh... more uh," she struggled for a word. "Harmonious," her brother added simply. "Bleh, not that again," she grimaced. "Which of us sees magic again?" Rising inquired. "Yeah yeah, whatever, Harmonious," Dawn waved a hoof dismissively his way. "Not very... curse like," she finished with her point. "But you won't find Earth Ponies or Pegasi wielding the arcane here. They have their own types of magic. With improvements in enchantments though, more and more have found use in artifacts to dip their hooves in such," Dawned added, such as Scarlet using a Watch for her courier duties than just relying on her wings. Partly why the need for the O.M.I. to grow was important to The Captain. Rising had his own inquiry for their guest however. "Why do you keep saying Her? Is the use of her name taboo?" Lily had a curious devotion to not saying the name of this charge she wished to rescue.

      Ah that is not that many cases . Plus 111 cases in a city of like 30-40 million is barely anything. I guess that's why no one is panicking in Tokyo yet.
