Searching Casual Stroll - An Introductionary RP around Ponyville OOC [Open Entry For All]

Recommended Posts

 So, uh... can't find anywhere's else here on the forums to ask for rp advice, but you're the only one I know to about it, @Blitz Boom & it's about your thread anyway, soooo just as well!

 Maybe I've said this before, but I can't really make anypony else come to any other decision. Like, have a goal in mind but if both characters are naturally & rightfully stubborn about it, there's nothing to be done to make it go any further, right? Like, It wouldn't be right for me to just tell @Dji that they're not giving me enough to work on... because they ARE, after all. 

 Dawn isn't happy where she's at enough to listen, Kaltrop isn't aware enough to know the severity of the situation from Dawn's point on things... wanna have my drake reluctantly fly her home & go from there... but I can't just make Dawn tell my character to do so, nor can I make my character come to any realization without it being made clear to him. Have a goal in mind, but no idea how to get there.

 Story of me life!

 Any ideas?

He flies her home anyway out of sheer stubbornness?

You know, if it's such a big deal, I can just have them shot down. There's still construction going on and they're kinda disturbing the flight routes for the workers, so it really wouldn't be out of character to have some folks *escort* them down. And before you go "Kaltrops is a dragon, ponies can't do that" need I remind you that pegasi are one thing, but the varied dragons, griffons, and such that make up the workforce currently (Since until the deed is done, the Courier's Guild which someone I forgot the name of introduced ages ago, are not gone yet) are able to get something done.

Heck, lemme take it a step further. We have Minotaurs, and there's plenty of rope. I could have Kaltrops roped and forcibly pulled - along with Dawn - straight into the arms of one of said Minotaurs that would then press him down on the ground, and tell him to stay out of the air, or the next time he won't be caught and he'll taste dirt. Crude, yet effective.

I can also have several other things happen if given some degree of leeway to sort you quickly, then potentially also make you play nice, or end up in adjourning cells.

You could also have them crash into the spa. Might make them cool off if they got a proper relaxing treatment. Perhaps then the two of them could actually begin talking and sorting themselves out too then, even if they'd act all tough and mighty on each their respective sides.

Though no matter if you take the suggestions or think of doing something else, I think a good deal of issues could be resolved with proper communication between you two, or your chars. Either add some internal dialogue to fill things and give some direction, or indication that the situation isn't exactly going the best it could, or run some PM's between one another, and figure out a scenario to get sorted down a path, because Widders does have a point. Things seem stagnant, and it needs something to happen to make it get somewhere. Be it crashing, being pulled out, Dawn falling down and Kaltrops swooping down to save her, Dawn just yelling into his ear to let her go at her house or she'll beat him with his own wings, etc. etc. you need to have something happen.

I am not entirely certain if I answered the question there, but if not, then sorry, I must've misunderstood things then. :/

There's a US state I've ponyfied. As a result, Colsas would refer to Kansas :) 

And hey, isn't Molotov trying to seduce Blue when talking about AI trains? Sounds like he's doing that :bedeyes:

More like he's nerding out and rambling. He tends to do that a lot. That's one of the reasons why the bigger spiderbot he owns tends to smack him. :P She's not as endeared to him as Carmen is.

Though now that I think about it... Have we accidentally laid the groundwork for Thomas the Tank Engine? Darn it!

As for Colsas, neat name. :) Equestria seems to be mostly made from North America as it is, so areas like that makes sense. I look forward to making a *You're not in Colsas anymore* remark. :P Hehe.

Forgot to write this, and for that I apologize, but I won't be able to respond until Monday. Visiting family this weekend.

Looking forward to continue with you all in just a few days. :)

New info: I changed Blue's name to Azure Train. It's less heavy and has more class than Blue to refer to the colour of his mane and coat. Don't you agree? ;)

I just had an idea! What if that ear Anomaly threw into that portal earlier became some sort of dangerous entity that they now have to stop?

Or we could just have them attempt to find Anomaly a boyfriend (which they could either succeed or fail, both outcomes have potential to be hilarious) and it could result in some ponies running away screaming.

Whoops, thought I responded to this. Sorry. :(

If you want the ear to have blossomed into a dangerous monster than go for it. Evolution is a fickle thing, which is one of the core concepts of Anomaly. She evolves and twists things biologically, and it can't always be controlled how that goes. She started by making the ear able to live on its own and being able to make a cocoon, but what happens in there is out of her control.

And yes, sometimes she lets it run rampant mostly just for the heck of it, and to see what sorta thing would happen. :P A monster would likely thrill her.

Anyway, it's up to you. I'm just gonna roll with it.

A dragon had tough scales, and Marley were not taken down by a mere slide of bricks.

Just want to point out... because Ruby actually transforms between the forms instead of mere illusions, in pony form she is just as vulnerable as a pony. Though as the eye trick now and her hiding her eyes and hoofs previously demonstrated, she can also partly transform, and the transformation is instantaneous regardless of the amount.

edit- Also, since it seems like Nada is going to meet Luna and or Celestia at some point, one question...would they recognize her? since she used to sing for the ponies in unnamed town before the sirens were banished, and it has been said in the RP that she knows who they are.

I'm sorry I couldn't reply in time, I tend to be busy these days :(

Also, the train Azure is building is similar to the British HST, but sun powered instead of diesel powered :)

Here is a video of it at full speed, so you can easily imagine the Celestial Express 125 matching that speed ;)

 

Of course the solar train would be quieter and would have a more MLP-like livery ^_^
