Dream Walker’s Nightmare Part One: To be in the Everfree Distorted reflections of the Mare in the Moon shimmered on a pond in front of a stallion with a solid dark green coat. He had decided to pause for a break to the subtleness of the pond and the softer shades of light that filled the clearing. Everfree was a dangerous place for most ponies but this at that moment, at the pond, it was peaceful and almost enchanting. The stallion sighed and turned his gaze from the moon to his blank flank. A perfect coat of solid dark green, unblemished by a Cutie Mark. The anomaly was unheard of, no pony had ever reached adulthood without receiving their Cutie Mark. It was a personal sign to their purpose as to what they would do once they had grown into a Mare or Stallion. The event itself was seen as a joyous occasion that brought much celebration. Yet here he was, a full-grown stallion, and no Cutie Mark. It’s not like it was due to a lack of effort. He had tried everything he could to earn it, and through the skills and knowledge remained the Cutie Mark never came. Fortunately, many of those skills had helped him survive in the Everfree. The Everfree, he never thought he would be living in such a hostile wilderness. Though technically he grew up in it, but within the safety of his own village. Reflecting on it now a tinge of pain still came to his heart. It felt like a betrayal from everyone and grew up knowing, but the truth still remained that he was one who left willingly. It wasn’t much of choice really. Rooms hushed when he entered. Stares and whispers started when he went to the market. His parents tried to comfort him saying that his Cutie Mark would come in time, but at that point what stallion would want to celebrate something that he was supposed to have received when he was a foal. Being seen as inferior, as something broken, it was becoming too much. So he left. “I wonder,” He turned from his flank back to the moon. “Was this what it was like for you when your subjects were banished? The loneliness I mean.” Comparing himself to the Mare in the Moon felt silly, but it’s not like there was any pony around to judge him. The Mare in the Moon had once been a princess ruling Equestria alongside her sister. At least that’s how the stories went anyways. The stallion’s people had been banished to the Everfree before the Mare in the Moon ever appeared so they never knew what truly happened. It was only a guess that it was their night princess up their still looking for her subjects. The somber nature of the ponies of the night never fit in completely with the lighthearted nature ponies of the day. Bat ponies were mischievous and playful compared to their Pegasus counterparts who helped other ponies as they manipulated the weather. The spiral-horned unicorns didn’t exactly get along with their solid horned kin either. The solid horns may have sought the pursuits of magic, but they cared more for traditions. Whereas the spiral horns, though more broody, sought to be more creative with their magic even at the cost of traditions. When King Sombra rose to power in the Crystal Empire he didn’t do any favors for the night ponies’ reputations. He may not have been a night pony, but that didn’t stop any pony from thinking that he was one. His affinity for smoke and darkness only fanned the flames to the rumors. Causing the entire empire to vanish only made things worse. For if Sombra could make an empire disappear than what else could any of the other night ponies do? And so the bat ponies, spiral horns, and the other ponies of the night were shunned and pushed into the forest as banishment by the ponies of the day. Since that day the forest became the Everfree as it filled with night magic. The spiral horns casting spells to make the forest go wild and untamable so that the day ponies would never be tempted to seek the night ponies out to finish what they started. At least, that’s how the stories were told anyways. The spiral horn stallion lowered his gaze from the moon but something on the tree line caught his attention. It was rigid and unmoving, unlike the organic moving trees in the wind. His nocturnal slit eyes quickly made out the details of a tower. A tower in the Everfree? It was unlikely. That is unless… The stallion’s horn glowed purple, the same color of his midnight eyes, as his saddlebag glowed the same color and levitated from the ground and onto his back. The wind brushed against his red and dark grey mane as he galloped off to the direction of the tower.
https://mlpforums.com/topic/167475-ponyville-into-the-forest-and-through-the-woods-ooc/ @Glacies Frost, @Randimaxis Mythos Grey was preparing himself for an expedition of sorts, taking a break from his normal studies and performances that he did as the grey unicorn stayed in Ponyville. He was a handsome stallion, or at least he liked to see himself as such, from Canterlot but he had been staying in the small town of Ponyville as he conducted interviews of different ponies though he had only had the chance to far to somewhat briefly speech with one by the name of Applejack and another by the name of Rarity. Yet that was unimportant right now, as he had hit a few snags in meeting with them again and then had to return to Canterlot for a family matter and other business. Mythos was back now, but before jumping back into what he was doing before he wanted to take a different path. Moving his white mane from in front of his violet eyes the stallion gathered together the items he will need as well his saddlebags. Once finished, he will put these aside as he considers how to proceed. Smiling, he says to himself, "Now to find a few ponies willing to go with me." Mythos considers how he will convince any of the ponies of Ponyville to help him, especially since most were too afraid of the Everfree Forest. Deciding, and because he was in the mood for something to eat before leaving, the unicorn will leave to go to the market and see who he could find there that might be willing to help him. That, and perhaps again a meal to ease his hunger a bit before starting out.
https://mlpforums.com/topic/167476-ponyville-into-the-forest-and-through-the-woods-ic/ @Glacies Frost, @Randimaxis This roleplay is currently between myself as well Glacies Frost and Randimaxis. I am perhaps open for a couple of other players in this roleplay but for now this is between us in a semi-private session unless they wish to open the floor to other members to join in for the fun. The basic concept is that Mythos Gray wishes to go into the Everfree Forest to find the ruined Castle of the Two Sisters and see what he may find there while wrangling in a few ponies, or perhaps other species/races, in to help him. The grey unicorn understanding full well that it can be dangerous, and that there was monsters within the Everfree Forest which could cause a few problems for himself or any who come with him. --------------------------------------------------------------------- Okay, my apologizes for the delay I had a few internet issues and others things to work on. That, and I also didn't get a lot of sleep so I got up pretty late in the day all things consider. I have everything setup right now though so that is a plus. I look forward to starting my first roleplay in a long time on here so I hope it goes well and there isn't any issues. Also, Randimaxis, if you wish to bring in Discord you may though as warning the draconequus may find Mythos has a few choice things to say with him as the unicorn would have read perhaps a legend or two involving him. Up to you I guess, though understandably I have admittedly a couple of reservations as I having haven't a chance to see you roleplay as him yet.
