Open Casual stroll

Recommended Posts

((OOC http://mlpforums.com/topic/110032-casual-stroll-an-introductionary-roleplay-around-ponyville-open-for-all/#entry3092621))

 

The crisp morning air went through the town of Ponyville as the day began it's usual rhythm. Early rising ponys awakened and yawningly began on their day ahead of everypony else, preparing the shops and dutys that had to be done before the buzzing life began in the currently scarce town.

 

The smell of baked goods and the far in between sound of hoofs slowly marching on the vacant ground began to mix in the air and give a sense of life awakening a little by little after yet another sleepy night passing by.

 

For the inhabitants of the town it was a day like many others, but who was to say what the day would bring? Perhaps some things, or some ponys, would make this day stand out amongst the peaceful ones that had passed?

 

Alas, the time was not for questions. The workers had their things to attend before the general populace would arise and little time to do it in, leaving the thought unsaid as they began their daily tasks and a low hum of activity started of the day.

Disruptis trotted slowly through the market. He needed something good to eat. Having a parasite removed from your brain does take its toll. He had just recently emerged from a regeneration stage and had a huge craving.

 

Oranges. I need oranges, he thought to himself. He walked up to one of the vendors, "Excuse me, but do you sell oranges here?"

Stoneheart walked in the back alleys of Ponyville, lonely and pretty bored.

 

She always walked in the back alleys when Ponyville was busy, since she tended to stand out in crowds.

 

She wanted to prank somepony, so she waited at the edge of the alley in the shadows, waiting for an unsuspecting pony to walk by.

The rays of the sun making its way through her braided mane, Anala trotted through Ponyville, taking in the lush spring air. She smiled and gazed around the pleasant town atmosphere.

 

@@Midnight Starfall,

 

She ended up bumping into a grey Earth Pony mare, about the same age as her. "Uh, sorry," Anala said to the mare.

@@Rainbow Eclipse,

 

Stoneheart felt somepony bump into her. "Dang it! I missed my chance!" she shouted suddenly, then looked at the mare. "Sorry," she said sheepishly.

 

She was waiting for the moment the mare would start running away from her, or start staring at her, as everypony always did. She stepped back a little into the shadows.

@@Midnight Starfall,

 

Anala raised an eyebrow at the mare's shy behaviour. "Nono, it's fine, I should have watched where I was going," she reassured the stone-coloured pony.

 

She shuffled her hooves about. "Um, perhaps it's not my place to ask, but... what exactly did you 'miss your chance' at?" she asked.

"Oh, I was trying to scare somepony," Stoneheart said from her place in the shadows. "But, I guess I should've backed into the alley more, since you bumped into me," she said, thinking it through.

 

She looked down at the ground, hoping she wasn't making her uncomfortable. She assumed she had that effect, since everypony always avoided her.

@@Midnight Starfall,

 

"Scare somepony? Why?" asked Anala. "Were you doing it as a prank? Oh, man, this takes me back... the pranks I would play as a filly."

 

She noticed a left-unattended paintbrush and can of black paint. 'How convenient.' She painted a letter 'I' between the 'O' and the 'L' on a 'TO LET' sign next to a house, and snickered.

@@Rainbow Eclipse,

 

Stoneheart stepped out of the shadows to see what she did. She snickered at the newly painted sign.

 

She flicked her tail with amusement, as she always did after seeing something funny. "I usually only scare strangers, by hiding in an alley, or behind a trash can or something," she said quietly.

"Well, just make sure that you don't end up becoming a one-trick pony," joked Anala. "I had a whole variety of practical jokes to play on gullible, unlucky shmucks back in my childhood. A friend of mine even works at a joke shop!" she told the grey-coated mare.

The familiar sound of tough fabric dragged over the ground in short pulls could be heard a handful of meters away from Disruptis, slowly moving towards the way he was in.

 

The noise came from a big, bulgy, sturdy looking rough bag closed with a thick vine at the top and a crude pink bow attached to the top of it that looked like it had fallen down a few times.

 

Dragging it over the ground was a filly, roughly 10 years by the look of it, who had the edge of the closed bag between her teeth and kept stopping to look towards Sugarcube Corner or to get a better grip in the load she had with her.

 

The filly was a orangy base color with patches of dark-grey fur adorning her. On her back was folded down, mechanical wings covered in a thin powdery color matching thepatches of fur, and on the tip of her head was a small horn recognising her as a unicorn, although the broken tip would also indicate she was currently out of luck with magic. Her mane was a fiery red and yellow pattern and her tail was bulbous and with a colour scheme making it appear somewhat as if the fluff was exploding. Her flank was covered in dust, so her cutie mark, if any, was not visible.

 

It didn't seem as if she had taken notice of anypony around her as she just kept on with the currently expanding dragmark towards her goal, about to pass by the currently shopping hat-wearing pony with a bag that, if he could smell the weak aura flowing in the wind, would smell like a mixture of sugar, plant extract and the bitter whiff of gunpowder.

"Um, that's technically the only trick I can use," she said quietly.

 

She remembered her days as a filly in school. All the fillies and colts wouldn't come near her.

 

She sighed sadly, and flicked her tail, and suddenly perked up. "But it's okay, I guess," she said, trying to reassure herself and stay positive.

"The only trick you can use?" restated Anala. "Well, what's stopping you from using any other ones?"

 

Anala wondered what the pony's answer might be. A unicorn had cursed her? She had played too many pranks, which had resulted in her getting a warning from the cops?

"I scare ponies 'cause I already scare them in the first place," she said quietly, flicking her tail nervously.

 

But then it dawned on her.

 

"Wait, are you scared of me?" she asked. "You haven't ran away or stared at me yet," she said, not hiding the surprise in her tone.

@@Midnight Starfall,

 

"I see nothing about you to be scared of," explained Anala. "Why do you ask? Do you think you're fat? Or ugly?"

 

To Anala, this stone-coloured mare seemed like an all-around ordinary pony. What the archer mare hadn't noticed yet was the tail that the grey pony donned.

"I don't really think I'm fat... I run and sneak around too much to be fat. Not sure about ugly though," she said honestly, flicking her tail for emphasis.

 

"Ponies just run away from me when they see me. Is it my spiky mane? My gray eyes? My coat color?" she asked, looking up at her mane, down at her coat, and back at her tail.

Anala eyed the mare. "You really need to get out more," she told her. "Nopony will ostracize you for having a spiky mane. It's just another mane style, like I have a braided mane. And grey is a totally normal coat colour. Sorta like mine, but darker."

 

She noticed the mare's tail. "That is a peculiar tail, though. No offence." Anala wasn't at all intimidated, she just found the tail... unusual and intriguing.

"My tail? Oh, yeah. My mom has a similar tail, mine's thinner and lighter though," she said, flicking it for emphasis. "I use my tail for more expressions. I didn't know my tail actually scared ponies," she said.

 

She looked back at her tail. "I've always been pretty proud of my tail. It's different, but is that really a reason to be scared of me?"

"I'm not intimidated by it at all," said Anala. "I'm just interested in hearing how you ended up with it."

 

Anala noticed that this conversation had been going for a good few minutes and they still hadn't introduced each other to each other. "I'm Anala. Anala Elderberry. What's your name?"

Stepping off the C-87 Liberator I took a moment to think things over. I made it. I actually made it. I crossed the black sands of Iwo Jima and the white sandy hell of Okinawa. I started to walk to my home. As I walked some of the ponies on the street turned and saluted me. I kept walking until I got to a market. I hadn't eaten at all today. I walked to a stand and bumped into a pony who was slowly trotting. "Oops excuse me." I apologized to him.

 

(Disruptis I'm referring to your character)

"Oh, I'm Stoneheart. Nice to meet you," Stoneheart said with a flick of her tail.

 

She shuffled her hooves and flicked her tail, not knowing what to say. "So, uh, what do you do for fun besides pranks?" she asked, trying not to drag the silence on and make it more awkward.

"I'm an archer," said Anala. She turned her flank to Stoneheart to show her cutie mark. A bow and arrow.

 

"I even run a business back in Manehattan. Two Bits for a two hour session of learning how to utilise a bow and arrow. Isn't that awesome? Getting paid to do what you love!"

 

"What does your cutie mark mean, Stoneheart?"

"That's pretty cool," Stoneheart said.

 

"Oh, I got mine when I stood up for myself one day in school instead of just walking away as I usually did. I asked for help and they ignored me," she said quietly. "So, it's a heart breaking out of stone, not being covered in stone."

"Interesting," replied Anala, nodding.

 

Before she could get another word in, she felt her belly gurgle, with a matching *gurgle* sound to accompany it. "I don't know about you, but I'm hungry. Wanna go to Sugarcube Corner and get something to snack on?" she asked Stoneheart.

"Um, sure," Stoneheart said, flicking her tail with excitement. She hasn't been there in a while. But, she was afraid of going at the same time. She didn't want a dozen ponies staring at her, or fearing her at all.

 

She didn't want to say anything to Anala though, so she kept quiet.
