Ruby just nodded thoughtfully to signal that she will think about it, though she really wasn't going to think about it, she wasn't interested to be hunting pals with anyone, not that she in pony form would be able to do much anyways. She quickly put the tooth back to the box and strapped it back on her back. She gave a real looking but fake grin to Spicy when she came talk to her "Looks can be deceiving." she decided to use the moment to her advantage to check something "Say...What did you expect?" "I know that you knew that I had something I didn't tell out right, but what was your guess if any."

---------------------------------------------------------

"Nothing comes to mind right now." Nada admitted "I guess one thing is that I'd like you to tell the Earth Mother my apology about the lake if that's something that can be done." "And if you happen to see a mare who talks about conspiracy and mind controlling machines, please tell her to come and meet me, she knows where I am, I owe her an apology, but can't go look for her for obvious reason."

"We'd like to schedule a check up for both of us. This one hasn't seen a doctor in almost fifteen years," Sun Fire said, nudging her brother lightly.

Zephyr frowned at her, but didn't say anything. He glanced at the colorful pony. As a colt he would have thought so many colors on a pony to be strange, but having lived in a populous place like Manehattan for so long, it seemed more strange for a pony to not have their mane dyed multiple colors. "Orange and yellow are good enough for me," he thought, running a hoof through the back of his mane. He frowned again when his hoof came away slippery, a product of the bubble creature from earlier. He sighed. "Stupid draconequui."

Sun Fire glanced around the main lobby. The hospital here was much smaller than the one she was at in Canterlot, but it still had that strange smell all hospitals seemed to have. At least it wasn't nearly as crowded. She remembered having to wait around for nearly half an hour when she checked out of the hospital in Canterlot. though it had felt like much longer because of all the confused fans who wouldn't stop badgering her. Sun Fire shivered. The whole experience was one she'd rather just forget.

And all that stolen time had to go somewhere.  Void didn't need to explain how it all work or the horrors that came about the effects of the pocket watch created by Twisted Gears.  The detective could very well see such things in the spell work.  Such magic was understandable considering the imprisoned witch at the O.M.I. who put 90 as her listed age but her appearance looked no older than a young mare.  Plus the eye he 'poked' in the feedback on the scry spell did not belong to somepony as young.  A common purpose to seeking the dark powers when a mare wanted to remain young and beautiful forever.  That was neither here nor there at the moment though.

With the cursed artifacts secured again in the locked closet and the pocket watch ready for transport, it was time to depart the inn.  While he did not feel the more comfortable leaving such objects in the inn, it couldn't be helped right now.  One problem at a time.  Leaving the inn owned by the nice earth pony couple, it was time to head down the street to the O.M.I. with Void in close tow.  He could understand her fear of crowds, especially parted from her sister, but at least she was respectful enough to give the unicorn the distance needed to not be devoid of his magic.  Luckily it wasn't the time of day yet for the street to be busy, not that it would last much longer though.  "I just need to pick up a few things.  Best to be prepared," he informed the mare as they continued their short journey.  When they came up to the door, Rising Dusk removed his badge from the pouch of his hoodie and pressed it to the warded door.  Pressing on it though, he found it to be locked.  Nice that the agents still working in there learned from the breech Null and Void made earlier and took more physical precautions as well.  Easy fix though as the unicorn then removed a key from his pouch as well to insert into the lock and gain the pair entrance to the O.M.I.  With a satisfying click the double doors swung open.

The duo were greeted by the red pegasus fluttering in the lobby back and forth in a pacing path.  Equipped with her own saddle bag stuffed with a lot of goodies for whatever situation might come next.  "Ah!  Detective!  You're back!" she shrieked in a volume that made Rising Dusk's ears pin back for a moment.  "Yes," he replied after getting his ears back up and sure that she wasn't going to scream again.  "Guess what?!  Tussle's back, and and~" she spouted.  "Your Lady and Savior has returned..." came a soothing feminine and an equally charming chuckle from the swinging doors that led to the offices.  The doors glowed a mint color then swung open and a tall, pure snow white unicorn came walking through them with her long horn aglow.  Pink and mint green streaked mane styled in classic Manehattan fashion and her posture formal yet regal, evident of a pony who spent her youth raised in the upper class.  An open, violet bound spell book with silver pages marked her flanks.  A similar spell book found on the badges of O.M.I. agents.  The teal coated unicorn Tussle following quickly behind her into the lobby.  

Rising Dusk tossed up a quick salute and smirk to her comment, "Captain," he greeted.  She smiled back, "Detective.  I hear you have a story to tell."  Oh did he have a story to tell alright.  Recapping for the leader of the O.M.I. everything from meeting Null and Void, dispelling harmful artifacts, to the attack on Manehattan and the plotting of one Twisted Gears.  Probably in a lot more detail than was necessary, but with his memory recall, he might as have been reliving the past two days over again.  Of course, introducing the younger sister of Troy to the Captain in the story.

"Peh, my narration is perfect. You're just thinking wrong."

I hate the lot of you.

"Awh phooey, he's back. You got anything else to throw at him?"

Do that, and I'm erasing you. I had to spend four days in hospital because of your little *prank*.

"Oh come on, it's been like, three minutes."

Perhaps in your time. Now just... Be quiet, and let me read up on what happened here...

"Yeah yeah, whatever. Hey Lumen? Do your evil laugh again. Perhaps it'll scare him away."

@Moonlit

"Pinkie. Pie."

Last's tone lowered and got bitter, like she held a long, dire grudge against the pony in question.

"For three hours, she did nothing but try and stir everypony into song and dance. Around heavy building materials. A pile of things almost got a group of three crushed, and yet nopony batted an eye at it. They just kept up this nonsense like they were hypnotized.

Rarity got her to run the food bank along with the Cakes, and then prepare something for after the real work were done. That got her out of our manes, but I don't trust her around things like this. Were she not one of the six who had saved her eternal majesty, Princess Luna, I would have barred her from getting anywhere near the place within the first minute. I don't want delays in the middle of a potential war zone."

Honestly, were this back at the shrine, and Pinkie had just been some random pony, there were a good chance that she would have been tied up and thrown out to the manetids. However, everything were in Pinkie's favor, so Last had to show some restraints around the pony, even when she wished to tie her up to a pole somewhere just to keep her in check.

Usually she didn't say this much in one go, but Pinkie Pie hit a few nerves that made her go on somewhat of a tangent. An annoying habit she were hoping wouldn't last.

"And no, I don't know how long the princess will take. It sounds as if they are talking about other princesses now. I doubt they're done soon."

"So, I don't suppose Discord taught you ways to pass the time?"

"Master Discord told me to do this."

Omen would slither her long, prehensile tongue around and wrap around pebble and small stones that she could pick up with it. Whilst doing so, she stared over towards Sen and Rosa. It seemed like they were sleeping well, but Sen would say noise later, yes? He had the other times she could remember, along with turning around, sweating, and overall looking like something wrong were happening. A nightmare, far as she knew, though she couldn't place right now if it were him that had told her that, or if she had heard it from somewhere else. Some sort of bad dream, but since dreams were hard for her to truly wrap her mind around, barring the time Discord tried to make her experience it, she just understood it as sleep pain. It didn't explain it, but the term sounded right somehow for her.

Regardless, after she gathered around a couple dozen or so stones and pebbles, she would raise them up, then open a bunch of gates and drop one in one by one. You could see through said gates that there were another waiting on the other side, but not where it went.

After three stones, one would drop right next to Lin. The fifth were a pebble that rolled out and weakly poked Omen herself on the head from the side. After the sixth, a bird confused flapped out of a tree and cawed, with a pebble rolling down and hitting a few branches on the way, following soon after. The rest wouldn't show any signs of being anywhere within sight, though some rustling and a yip could be heard at the last one a few meters away.

"Master Discord said it were fun to see where they would fall. Used to use cotton candy. It got sticky."

Sometimes they would use other things, but he enjoyed using this more than anything else, since it didn't hurt anypony, and he thought it hilarious to see them getting sticky and confused when a fluffy candy ball suddenly fell on them and made them all jumpy.

"Not much since he went away. I just think now. Watch others sleeping. Sometimes follow ponies around. What do you do? Read, yes? Other things?"

====================================================================================

 

"Fifteen years? Oh my, I'd say a checkup is going to be needed as soon as possible then. Hold on, let me just check..."

Needle went under the desk and pulled out a schedule for her and the various other nurses and doctors in here, and looked at when there might be time for anything.

"...Would tomorrow at 11:30 be okay with you? We've had an opening there that I could fill your name into. Next one isn't for around three more days. If you'd like miss, I could put you down there at 14:10? I'd just need you to sign these forms if it were."

She'd pull out the required forms where they would have to put some general information down like name, age, known illnesses, etc. She would offer a few to Briar as well, but she were well aware of him and Brittle so far. It were hard to not in this hospital, seeing as he were the only one who couldn't get a proper checkup in town, due to his physiology, and Brittle were far too timid to even make an attempt. Far as she heard, the one time it had been suggested and the doctor went over to pick up a few tools to use for that, she crawled into the fetal position and began crying. Poor thing were barely gazing at her now, and she looked terrified.

"Just to make sure, is there anything immediately urgent that needs to be checked up on right now? Sudden headaches? dizziness? Bleeding from random areas of your body? Anything like that? It's been a pretty nasty time after the attack a few days ago, so we've been dealing with a lot of injuries like that."

==========================================================================================

 

@Rising Dusk

Seems like the O.M.I office had started to lock their doors. That were an improvement over how things had been recently, but she guessed, with this sorta attack going on, it was best to be prepared. Magic wards might not save you forever, as were evident by how easily Null and Void could just wander through the door before this. Their situation might be unique, but anti-magic of some variation weren't.

Going inside to a more safe and secure place, Void felt a small bit more at ease, and raised her head a little further up. Seemed like everything were in order here too. Nothing were about to bite them, no traps, no rush from a lot of ponies that would indicate that their workload had suddenly exploded from a relentless assault, no nothing. Only one that seemed to be there were the red pegasus that seemed to have a lot on her mind, and preparations ready for likely every single thing she could think of. At least that were what Void assumed, as she didn't know what any of those items were actually used for, so she just guessed it from past experiences with this agency. They always seemed able and ready to deal with a lot of things that normal ponies would have run powerless away from.

She seemed to be up in a high gear too, considering the energized greeting that came Rising's way. Actually hurt quite a bit to listen to, though thankfully the volume seemed to have lowered as she spoke again. Somepony had apparently come back now? Another of their workers? Tussle sounded like a pony name at leas-

Void froze in place a little as the unexpected voice interrupted Scarlet's ranting. A reflex more than anything, as the voice hadn't been threatening, and the pony who actually came into view shortly after the words were being spoken didn't look intimidating.

Pure and white like snow in colors, and like herself, were a tall pony compared to others around her, though she couldn't tell if Tussle were a little taller, or if they were around the same from this distance right now. Her mane were worn with elegance and had light, refreshing colors flowing through them, matching her regal, elegant posture well, and really gave off a look of somepony who were high up in society, yet not one of the more snobbish royals that tended to be the post foal of the rich and mighty. The long horn though, were something special. Void only rarely saw those on non-alicorns, and from what she understood, it tended to be because a large horn like this meant a unicorn with incredible magic potential, and that it could be seen as a sign for somepony really powerful. Hence, why alicorns tended to have them, though she weren't sure if that were true or not.

It struck her suddenly how polarizing it were to look at this mare and her in the same locale actually. Both larger ponies, yet one elegant, and radiating a pureness and calm that seemed to brighten the room, whilst Void were dark as a basement of coal with rough, silvery hair, and the stance and aura of worry, along with a more muscular frame from living among the bottom parts of life. It had been a while actually since she had felt so imperfect compared to another being, but this were somehow stinging the more she thought about it. Like looking in a mirror of an alternative reality, where life had been kind to her, instead of the ugly reality she represented.

Another mare came out too, but it were hard to really get a look on her right now, with the captain sticking out this much.

Rising would start soon after recapping everything, but Void's gaze wouldn't leave the captain as she tried to gauge what were going to happen the further the story got along. Would she get angry? Afraid of what the sisters could do? Know what to do about Twisted? Perhaps sacrifice the sisters to him to try and sate his wrath before things got out of hoof?

That last one made Void give a nervous gulp around the same time as she lifted a hoof and made a small wave as the officer talked about Null and her. It were good he kept talking for a bit more after that, as it gave Void a bit of a chance to gather herself and figure out what to do here. It didn't seem like the captain got angry during this, but who could really tell what went on beneath the surface, right?

Once he were finally done, Void would clear her throat and take a deep breath. This were going to be a tense situation.

"Uhm... H-Hello. I'm s-sorry for the trouble my s-sister and I c-caused... Please d-don't chase us out of t-town."

Rising were great and all, so far little doubt about that, but this were somepony else that she didn't know, who seemed to be big on magic and keeping peace. Who were to say what she'd do about the two sisters who might be pretty disruptive of her? And that wasn't even bringing in the politics of having Troy refugees here. Princess endorsed or not, if you were deep into politics, knowing you were dealing with a defector from an enemy nation could be an issue. Hopefully she were as nice as the O.M.I. had been so far, and not go against what her cutie mark had so far stood for in Void's experience.

"I figured you drugged folks and stole their stuff. Bit of stabbery if the mood struck or they struggled."

Ruby asked and Ruby received. Kind of. Spicy kept back her thoughts about the mare actually being a changeling for a while since she honestly couldn't let go of that nagging feeling that something were still a bit off about Ruby. Sides, she might get all prissy if she battered on about that, and who needed that hassle? 

"Hey, I ain't judging. Whatever floats your boat and gets food on the table, right? Just didn't pick ya for the sort to go 'round and mess up dragons. I'm giving ya props for doing that and not end up in a ditch somewhere."

Credit where credit's due, most wouldn't be able to sport around a bunch of trophies of slain dragons and get away with it. Ludvig did, and mostly just received growls and harsh stares, but that's because he had proven to be someone you didn't mess with, so most just did theirs to not get in his way. Well  most did anyway. The former Dragon Lord had set a pretty substantial price on the minotaurs head, and even with a new ruler, that should still hold its value until the old dragon passed on. Something which'd likely not happen for at least another millennia.

============================================================================

 

@Catpone Cerberus

"The Earth Mother's presence are all around us. She will hear your words, and I hold no doubt that if her voice could reach us, she would hold no ill will towards you. Every creature who resides upon her shell needs to eat, and though barren now, your lake will soon again bristle with life."

It would be one of Lyriel's first priorities, soon as she had regained some degree of power again, though she may have to request some help from Nerzhei to get the river connected to the apparently barren lake. One way or another, balance would be restored.

"The mare that you speak of though, does she hold no wings or horn, and looks purple with pale colors around her? I know not what a machine are, but when I first exited my tree form earlier in Ponyvile, a mare like that started scrambling back and talking about how something were finally happening, and spoke about a sort of conspiracy unfolding. I did not have the chance to explain or ask anything before she had gotten out of view, yet perhaps this is the one you meant? I know not if I can make her listen if that is."

A troubled mind that pony had seemed to carry with her, yet Lyriel had tried to think nothing on it, and instead focus on whatever else had happened in Ponyville. The positive ones preferably, as she had to admit that it had not been a meeting that had filled her with joy or confidence, which she had needed to try and interact with the smaller equines. An endeavor that had not gone as smoothly as one could hope, but it were improving slowly.

"Why were you in the hospital? It was just a garden snake."

"Yeah! Those aren't even venomous!"

"Well, technically they are, but their venom is harmless."

Lumen decided to do his laugh again. It was sure to strike fear into those who heard it.

"LOL."

"Can we reform him now?"

Lin watched, amused, and a little concerned about having a small pebble land on her head. Or maybe even on Sen or Rosa. It wouldn't be hard to imagine just how painful a rock that small could lead to a world of hurt. Seeing it once or twice could be a small diversion but she'd honestly say to herself that this was a novelty at best and it would wear off sooner or later. Of course, if Omen found enjoyment out of it, it wasn't her place to say otherwise. Discord's version sounded a lot more fun, and messier. 

Then one stone landed next to Lin and she let out a muffled gasp trying not to wake the others. Understandable reason to be cautious around rocks now but it got her curious enough to imagine if it is possible to open gates that led to random places. Would it be possible to just open one but not think about what the other side is, where it would be? It is something to consider, maybe when they had a chance to talk to Mother about the extent of this kind of ability. 

"Must have been fun to see Discord doing it, huh? I guess it's something to be seen. I usually read just to forget how much time is passing by because waiting for the sunrise is about as fun as watching a sapling grow out of the ground. It's bound to happen but I'd be bored long before I see anything interesting. To be honest, I really miss sleeping. Drifting off to slumber when all is quiet, or hearing a soothing song to help a restless mind calm down..."

There was a wistful look on Lin's face as the moonlight bounced off her eyes. She remembered her mother's routine, singing to her when she wouldn't go to sleep. Even now she could still picture it all: her mother sitting beside her bedroll, stroking her head and singing a tune that only had one stanza on repeat. Eventually, she grew out of the habit but those memories stayed with her, even until now.

"Now I just read until I get so caught up in it that I don't notice how many page's I've gone through. Once I managed to finish a whole collection of manuscripts on herbs before dawn! Do you want to have a look? I think I have some of those in my saddle bag."

"That isn't entirely wrong either." Ruby said with slight humor in her tone, and it wasn't a lie, she had in fact seduced some ponies and stolen their things, something enjoying a little meal too, but with that she had purposely chosen ponies who no other pony cared about so she wouldn't get noticed, and ponies who annoyed her of course. "And just for the record, I wouldn't really care if you judged me, it's not like I'm trying to win you over, I'm here just to make profit like you."

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
"Don't worry, I don't know what a machine is either." Nada said with a chuckle "And yes, that sounds like her." "She's bit of a.......unique case, but she's a nice pony and friend of mine." "If you see her again, try to call her by her name, Berry, it could get her off guard enough for you to tell her I want to talk with her." "It's true she doesn't necessary listen to you, but if you could at least try it would greatly appreciated."

Zephyr nodded reluctantly. Having just moved in, it's not like he had any important plans that might conflict, much to his displeasure. He hadn't even officially opened the shop yet, so he couldn't use that as an excuse.

"Those times work for us," Sun Fire said, sliding the forms over to herself. She glanced over it quickly and passed one of the forms to Zephyr, who did the same. "Let's see... I don't really think there's anything important I need to mention," she thought, filling out the form. Her penmanship wasn't perfect, but it was at least easily legible. She had always thought it was a little strange that her brother's writing was much neater than hers, nearly perfect even, but it made more sense taking his magic into account. "The wound on my stomach has healed enough that I don't need to keep it covered, and the doctors said there isn't anything to worry about anymore, so it should be fine if I don't mention it."

Sun Fire passed the pen over to Zephyr and slid the form back to Needle. "No, nothing urgent like that. We just need to make sure we're keeping ourselves healthy. Especially just having moved here, it's probably a good idea."

Zephyr placed the pen down on top of the completed form and shook his head. "Nope, nothing wrong with me. I feel great. Maybe I don't need a checkup after all."

Sun Fire kicked her brother under the desk, and he bit his lip to avoid yelping. He shot her a look and levitated the form and pen over to Needle, placing them down gently in front of her.

Rising Dusk was thorough in his recap of the past two days to the agency captain.  But kept it close enough to bullet point format to not keep the group there for a whole day in the details he could recall.  The Captain was use to it by now though, having both read and received oral reports from the detective since recruiting him.  It was actually her the develop the bullet point system for his reports to keep them from turning into novels.

By the end of the detective's story of events, the expression on her face was one of mortified.  Well, about the same level of mortification a Manehattan mare finding out Rarity For You's spring line of dresses was ending a week early and her wardrobe wasn't complete yet.  Her brilliant mint eyes were wide and her mouth hung slightly open in aghast.  With the conclusion of his story, she regained her composure a bit.  Closing her eyes and reaching up with a hoof to rub between her eyes, "Tussle, dear... What is the pool up to on Rising's Trouble Meter?" she inquired.  "80 Bits, ma,am," the smaller teal unicorn pipped up.  Opening her eyes and lowering her hoof back to the floor, "Be a dear and put me down for another 20 Bits," she cooed and then pointed at the detective.  Who rolled his eyes at even the existence of this pool on him.  "I'm gone a week at a boring conference with the leaders of the Royal Guard, Night Guard, Coast Guard and all the other law enforcement agencies in Equestria.  Taking in tea with the Princesses and here you're having all the fun!," the Captain pouted.  Their beloved leader was a bit of a thrill seeker who upon founding the O.M.I. wasn't quite aware of the responsibilities of being said leader kept her out of the field.  Putting her hoof down with a slight stomp like a filly having a small tantrum in not getting her way.  Yes, regardless of how hard she tried to fit herself into a more normal level of society, she was still a bit spoiled from her upbringing.

A thought occurred to her though as she reached up and tapped her chin, "However there does seem a dark wizard needs my atten~"  She was quickly interrupted by Tussle who cleared her throat purposely.  The Captain frowned, "Ugh..." she turned to face the unicorn standing behind her and lowered her head to be face to face with the smaller unicorn.  "I have to stay here, huh?  In case he's after the Vault?" she complained and received a rather large, fake smile from Tussle.  Ever our vigilant secretary pony that kept our eccentric boss in line.  Rising Dusk smirked at the exchanged.  Often it wasn't keeping their captain out of danger, but keeping danger away from their captain.  She went overboard at times, and in the pursuit of a suspect who had hidden in a building, she'd more likely just teleport all the buildings on the block away to expose his hiding spot.  

Straightening back up, her horn glowed.  Dusk's case journal and a stamp came flying through the swinging doors.  The range of her telekinesis spell always impressed the detective, having pulled those from all the way in her office without even looking.  His journal flipped to the page on the case he started against the witch of the wilds and her master on it's own and she stamped it in big red ink of her cutie mark.  "Permission to peruse the dark wizard Twisted Gears and bring him to justice... Granted," she announced and floated the items back into the offices.

When the timid earth pony finally spoke up, she turned back around to face her and regard the fear of being tossed out of the city.  At first her expression might appear like she was actually thinking of doing such a thing, but really it just took a little long to register such a thing.  Her nose wrinkled adorably and she crackled up into laughter that even produced a small snort.  "Oh sweet darling... Why would we do such a thing?" she told Void with a smile.  Her horn glowed and suddenly the lights in the O.M.I. went out, casting the lobby into darkness.  A second later, a spot light shown down on the snow white unicorn who stood tall, hoof raised, and her mane and tail gently flowing in a breeze.  "Any citizen of Equestria, refugee or otherwise, will always receive the fair protection and justice of the O.M.I." she exclaimed, swelling with pride.

Eccentric.  Igniting his own horn, he countered the spell and the lights came back.  Not quite sure how well the younger sister of Troy would take the theatrical nature of their leader.

@Rising Dusk

Seeing the captain - who appeared to not be the one named Tussle after all, which left her name a blank to Void - were a uhm... Special experience, one could say.

She were not the most eccentric or out there leader of a group Void had run into. She could name at least a half dozen off the top of her head from the last decade alone, though those were normally cult leaders, or had gotten a position through bloodlines that eventually had lead to a rather special case sitting in a position of power. Others still were fanatics that had risen through various means that were mostly rather violent, and they stayed in power because madness or not, they were the strongest or somehow smartest.

The captain though, fell into the rare category of a seemingly benevolent eccentric. Something which Void did not run into often, which could somehow be attributed to her and Null not socializing much in their time, yet she'd argue that even if they had managed to integrate better other places, seeing the good kind of crazy would still be a rarity compared to the other sort. And honestly? She weren't sure how to react to somepony like this.

Technically she were one of the good beings, and Rising deemed to have no issue with her, which were a vote of confidence, yet the captain were clearly a very boastful, hooves on sort of pony. Beings like that tended to cause trouble for those around them in Void's personal experience. Overvaluing their own meddle, ignore those around them in favor of attempting to hunt the glory themselves, and so on and so forth.

Still, as the captain kept on taking and Tussle's involvement went in over it too, it did seem that as eccentric as this mare were, she were bound by the rules like everypony else here, and would seemingly not cross the line to go after beings themselves, if protocol said she shouldn't. It did help Void see her as being perhaps pretty okay for a unicorn. Nothing against their kind per se, yet seeing as the two sisters cancelled out magic, interacting with unicorns tended to be a tedious, and potentially dangerous affair for them. Magic might not hurt them, but throwing stuff with telekinesis or something similar wouldn't be harmless, and that usually didn't take a lot of time for the ponies in question to figure out. And that was the regular kind. Even though Void couldn't say for sure, this mare appeared to be one of the more powerful ones. The horn were one thing, but her whole way of being just seemed to ooze well deserved confidence. Might just be her paranoia speaking here though...

Anyway, Rising trusted the captain, and whilst she did not seem harmless, Void would try and give her the courtesy of not thinking the absolute worst about the tall mare, for his sake. He had tried to put trust in refugees from Troy - an action Void hardly knew how to even begin thanking him for - so the least she could do were to try and think well of his boss. Though the answer to the question about whatever or not she might want to chase them out of the country were going to perhaps swing it in another direction. From how she started to answer it, it seemed like this were going to go well though? Maybe? The laughter at the start were confusing her.

When the light suddenly went out during the response, Void nearly jumped out of her skin, and a small whimper instinctively escaped her muzzle. What were happening? Were they under attack?

The light would come on about as sudden as it had vanished. Or rather, some light would, as the captain would be bathed in what were essentially stage light, as she finished her two cents on the matter. Seemed like Void needed to add *theatrical* to the list of qualities the captain had. This was going to be a problem if Null and her ever met, but she supposed that'd have to be a worry for when it happened. It wasn't a massive deal breaker for Null though, and she'd rather focus on the good parts, where the captain said that she would uphold the law for everypony, be they Equestrians or outsiders. So long as Null or her didn't actively break laws, they should be fine then. That were a relief, though it weren't slowing down the increased heart rate Void had gotten from the surprise upstaging before, which Rising thankfully corrected soon after.

"That's g-good. I'm uhm... S-Sorry for having asked it, it's just... L-Long and complicated s-stories with other c-countries who weren't as k-kind as Equestria h-have been. It m-made me nervous. P-Please forgive me.

Though, I uhm... Didn't t-think the Coast Guard were a r-real thing. Heard s-stories about them in P-Ponyville that sounds w-weird. M-Must have been a strange meeting if t-they're like that...

A-Anyway, if there's a-anything I can do to help, p-please just ask. Rising have b-been nothing but kind to m-me and my sister, and w-we just brought p-problems here... W-We'll make up for it i-if we can."

The Coastal Guard had been an understatement to put down as just being weird. From what that cook in Ponyville said, it were run differently based on whoever were in charge, and the role as general didn't just get passed on whenever a generals felt like it, so it could change from years to year, depending on who won their big context. That were where Void had started to be sure that the guard weren't real, and just some fancy tale to pull one over her head. It were simply too surreal to think that there were any law agency that had to yearly prove their meddle through a competition that included shark wrestling and trident throwing. Guess it might still be exaggerated then, but the agency being real were still weird to her, although logical. Had to be somepony making sure no evil rose from the ocean unchallenged, right? If the stories were real, that role went to them, and for the past four years and counting, a smallish mare called Tidal Wave were their leader.

Were it better circumstances, she would have asked here now that the thoughts came into mind, but there were more important things to focus on here. Namely the inevitable interference of Twisted, and what to do about it more than likely. Actually, about that...

"W-What are we going to d-do about Twisted, if I m-may ask? Chase him? P-Put down traps? And a-after that? I t-think he could just outlive p-prison time."

"Alright then, I'll put you on right away miss-"

Needle took a look at the form to get the names of the two future patients in front of her. Thank Celestia for being able to read upside down without much of an issue.

"-Sun Fire, and mr. ... Zephyr. I'll have you written in shortly."

Taking up the schedule, she scribbled in the names, times, and a small note about how long ago Zephyr's last check were, which seemed like an important thing to mention, so the doctor could give him a thorough examination. After all that time, who knew what might be going on with that stallion? Nothing that were good to miss more than likely.

Writing in Sun's Name afterwards though, caused her to pause after scribbling it down. There were something oddly familiar about this name...

Then suddenly a light went on above her head, and Needle got big eyes and a look of realization and shock.

"Wait wait, Sun Fire the Singer? The one who performed with Songbird? Oh heavens above, I love your music! I went to see a concert like, a year ago I think, and you two just blew everypony off their hooves. It were some of the most ama-"

There were going a bit too much fan mare over Needle at that point, and she suddenly became aware that her voice had started to rise and she leaned forward enough to almost fall right over the desk, head first. Then came the mortifying reality of how unprofessional this were, and how uncomfortable this would have to be for the mare. The embarrassment almost glowed on Needles now increasingly red cheeks as she got back again and averted her gaze, squirming a little from the thoughts of how out of hoof it had gotten all of a sudden.

"I'm terribly sorry, I didn't mean to get carried away like that. Your uh... Your check ups have been added to the schedule. The doctor will be ready within a half hour of the set time on both days."

=========================================================================================

"That's the spirit. Hopefully won't be long before the auction gets cracking. until it does though, I'm thinking we have a look around, and see what's going on here. Hopefully some better things than art and statues. I know this sorta trash is valuable, but frankly I'll never get it."

"That comes from your lack of sophistication. That being said, perhaps we should move on to find magical artifacts? Those tends to sometimes be of some kind of value to us."

Marley lead them on before Spicy could try and slap him for his comment, moving past several things that included highly priced furniture, the large skin of an Ursa Major, and several more pieces of art and books. There were also a clutch of eggs the size of a pony's head, covered in violet crystals, with a furry shell beneath.

After a dozen or so of random things, they managed to get to an area with some random things on display that were more focused on being magical and either highly valued things that had been stolen from collections, or were illegal to own. This were the black market after all. You didn't come here to buy things that you could in some shop.

"This seems interesting. Something in particular you'd want to have a look at, Ruby?"

(You may put in whatever, long as it's not legal, and/or were stolen)

@Catpone Cerberus

"I will do so if I meet her again. Hopefully she will be able to calm herself enough for me to speak with her."

So this were a friend of Nada then? Interesting choice, but who were Lyriel to judge? Her closest friends were a filly living in this forest that created explosives - whom she had been told left the day before with a family member - and Nerzhei, an exiled dragon scholar. She valued them both highly, and were happy that the filly had found some of the family she had said were lost to her, yet the dryad could not say that they were typical, from what she had observed and heard. Really, were a pony who spoke of conspiracies and strange things truly more out there than her companions? If asked, she'd say no.

The phoenix began cooking and chirping on her head after that, whilst flapping his wings.

"I see. Agni says that machines are creations of metal that does work for others. The descriptions reminds me of golems, yet instead of them being risen from the ground, these *machines* would be made by steel. I can't say I saw anything like that when last I went in there, but perhaps tomorrow I can ask around, if they are willing to speak with me. It have been a trying time for them, ever since that large, shadowy figured attacked their town, and they have barely regained their homes. They may have other things to focus on than this."

=====================================================================================

 

@Moonlit

"It is not my place to judge royalty."

By that she meant yes, Twilight might as well be the princess of books, considering how many of them were here. In patrolling, she had passed through that library of hers, and that place contained at least twelve times as many books as Last had seen in her entire life. Not as impressive as one might think, considering the shrine weren't focused on reading as much as defending their post at all costs, like Princess Luna had asked the original loyalists to do a millennia ago, yet they had managed to keep some books between the ages, and had several tomes describing their history within the walls. Or well, they did, before her majesty returned to them and dismissed her loyal followers from their duty, as the cycle had apparently been complete. Their historian took every tome with him to Canterlot after that, to ensure that their generations upon generations of sacrifice and battle for the crown would not be forgotten.

It were still hard to accept that their duty were over for Last. Like most others there, she had been born and raised fighting for the princesses orders, and defending what laid dormant in their shrine's center. She didn't know anything else, and trying to fit into the world she had only heard of in old tales were a constant struggle. It were why she jumped at the chance to fight the creature attacking the town, then began patrolling the streets, took the role of overseeing the rebuilding efforts, and now patrolled these halls without a second thought. It were either familiar, or influenced by the words of one of the royals. It made her feel useful in a sense, and made it easier to look away from the stark contrast between her former life and what she had to embrace here.

It were a reason why so many from the shrine had wandered on to try and join the Royal Guards in some capacity. Be it Coast, Solar, or if the gods willed it, Night Guard, made no difference. Long as they were useful to the crown in one way or another.

Honestly, if the word came tomorrow that the shrine had to be reopened to contain something new, at least 80% of them would return immediately. Few were happy to be free of the war zone, and those who were, would remain out here, along the random exiles and passerby's who fell over the shrine within the latest generation. New troops as they thought of them as, considering they needed the protection of the shrine to stay alive, and most would get in line, as the only alternative would be to go back out there, and it were not safe near their gates.

*sigh* Last envied those like her sister who could just wind down and get used to the generally more dull task of being a regular palace guard. She weren't personally able to just wander in a hall forever. She were one who needed to be in places where her battle prowess could be of use, which at least this town had proven to need, so she might hang around here for the time being, whilst she thought over things. Unless she were conscripted by the local princess, who might not be the most impressive alicorn of the bunch, but whom were honestly in dire need of guards, and more importantly, somepony to train them. This town were a sporadic war zone and needed unflinching guards to protect her, and yet, she hadn't a single guard to aid her. It spoke well of her own strength, Last would give her that, but it were still not a smart thing.

Perhaps when she would eventually have the chance, she'd offer her services to Twilight. If her pride allowed her to do so.

However, for the time being, she had to focus on the siren in disguise, who seemed to want to read whilst waiting for the princess. A fair enough use of time she supposed.

"I will escort you there. Follow."

Getting up the tiredness in her body just became more evident, as she staggered a little and almost stumbled, yet there were a job to do here, so she would have to get on with it and lead Serenade to the impressively large library. Many a book to read from there, yet what caught her eye were hard to say. Darned if Last knew what sirens found fascinating. Lava lamps and frogs?

"Far as I know, there are no forbidden tomes here. Read what you want."

She on the other hoof, would take a sit on a soft couch to the side. Nothing of the sort had been there when she grew up, and it felt weird with the soft surface, but right now she'd be hard pressed to not think it were an absolute godsend, and some of the most comfortable she had felt since she were a small filly, and her parents still lived.

"Must have been fun to see Discord doing it, huh? I guess it's something to be seen. I usually read just to forget how much time is passing by because waiting for the sunrise is about as fun as watching a sapling grow out of the ground. It's bound to happen but I'd be bored long before I see anything interesting. To be honest, I really miss sleeping. Drifting off to slumber when all is quiet, or hearing a soothing song to help a restless mind calm down..."

"Master Discord did many things he said were funny. Not many made them scream."

There were times when he had told her that certain ponies needed to be punished, and then he did a cruel prank on them that tended to leave them crying, screaming, weeping, or a combination of all of them, whilst sitting in a fetal position. His smile were different when he did that. His eyes too. They both became hard, and twisted in weird ways. In time she had come to understand that as what others considered to be his *evil face*, whilst the joyful one with all the laughter and giddy voices were the playful Discord she mostly knew of. Some ponies now were talking about this good side too, but back after he had vanished, she mostly just heard words about how mean and cruel he had been. She didn't understand it then, and mostly, she still didn't.

Mother told her that this were because she lacked the perspective to see it from the ponies side, and that to them, what he did would seem mean. A strange thing, but Omen had learned a little about it over time. Just not enough to truly get a real understanding of the entire thing. Guess it didn't matter now either, right? He were reformed, and that meant he were good. Things were probably different now.

"Resting beings look like they like it. Most times.

It is interesting to watch others sleep. Sometimes they speak. Tells stories about chaos and strange things. Reminds me of Master Discord's world."

Omen had learned a good deal of things listening to others talking in their sleep. The most prominent being that they didn't like it when they suddenly found somepony standing near them and just looking. So she started to stand a little further away, then outside, looking through a window, in closets, etc. Eventually she learned that it were better to go through a gate when they started to wake up so they didn't see her, but it had taken about five years until then. And that were after she had returned, past the few millennia she spent with Mother, which made it fairly recently that she stopped being the cause for warnings being sent around neighborhoods about a random stalker lurking in the area.

Before that she had also looked at ponies sleep, and whenever she thought she heard them say something that reminded her of her masters world, she would wait until they woke up, and then ask them if they had seen him. As all could vividly still remember Discord, and overall saw her as a reminder of a horrible time for them, the responses had been pretty bad, and she had gotten no answers. To think that Discord had just become a statue at that point that she had completely missed had been a strange twist after it were revealed to her.

"Now I just read until I get so caught up in it that I don't notice how many page's I've gone through. Once I managed to finish a whole collection of manuscripts on herbs before dawn! Do you want to have a look? I think I have some of those in my saddle bag."

"I can not read. Is there pictures?"

She wished that she could sometimes. Ponies who read looked like they had a fun time with whatever were on the paper, it were just that Omen couldn't take part in that. Discord had never taught her, most beings had little to no interest in interacting with her prior to Sen and Lin entering her life and suddenly causing a lot of social interactions, so there hadn't been help there either, and despite her best efforts, eating books had not made her understand words better. It had sounded like good advice when that colt told her to do it, but sadly, it hadn't done anything beyond causing her to cough up passages from whatever writing she found that looked like it hadn't been in use.

If she had misunderstood though, and it were just herbs they were looking at, she could participate in that easily. Plants were sometimes pretty.

Allergies. Doesn't need to be poisonous for that.

He also failed to mention how the snake had caused him to go into a girlish fit and stumble down into his cacti. Much pain ensured.

Hey, stop spreading lies, or Henry will vanish.

"Keep him out of this, he have barely hurt anypony yet."

Not caring much more for this, the writer went back to describing what were going on. Which in this situation, were basically that they had plowed into a building as their focus had been more on the talking than the driving they had been doing at the same time. If it were the mayors building or not were hard to tell though, unless you were a local.

"Oh right, we were going to go there. Is this it? We gotta go out and threaten them then, so we can redeem Lumen! And I bet that They will at least be terrified at your evil laughter. The writer is just a stick in the mud about it, and don't wanna admit that he started shaking when you said it."

Side effects of the medication.

"Pfff, right."

"Just don't be allergic to snake then."

"Yeah, why are you allergic to snakes?"

"Yeah! Let's terrorize the locals!"

Lumen held the seed and the ponies stood there confused.

"Uh... LOL."

One pony screamed.

"AH! A POORLY MADE EVIL LAUGH!"

All the ponies went into a panic screaming and running around.

"There we go."

"It's got drawings of plants to help you identify them out in the wild. Sadly, it's fairly limited and it won't help you learn about plants around Equestria in general... Yeah, not a very comprehensive one and the rest of it is text."

Lin walked over to her saddle bag and pulled out a stacks of papers bound by string. A fairly thin stack but one with the most pictures. Even so, there is still a lot of written text in it that goes on to describe a plant, its name, its uses, and a whole list of recipes that use said plant ingredient. Among those would be the elfroot salve and bandages that Sen constructed for Rosa not too long ago. It's a plant with a lot of uses for a variety of reasons, medicinal or otherwise. Lin opened to this page and showed it to Omen with one notably impressive and accurate sketch of the plant and the rest of the page covered in words. Only now did Lin notice the words are written in the common language, something even ponies are capable of reading. At least it isn't old ponish, that would have been a nightmare to go through even without terrible hoofwriting. 

Admittedly, there was plenty more for Lin to say about the topic of sleep, but she'd keep what Omen said in mind. Sleeptalking is something she had already seen in Sen, and it was fairly disturbing to say the least. More so with him describing his nightmares later on when asked, and his reactions being raw and real. She'd stay away from that part for now and maybe bring it up again later. Right now, she's got a little show and tell to do.

"Here, a page on a kind of plant found around our village. This one is called Elfroot, a pale-colored plant with long leaves. Very common and easy to spot near rivers. If you like, I can teach you how to read. It's never too late to learn."

Ruby looked around but though there was various things being made of shining materials, there wasn't anything that seemed worth money to her at the moment, especially considering that she was pretty sure that nothing here would be cheap. "Not really, or well, I of course would like to have almost everything here, but I have yet to see anything I think is wort paying for." but when she spoke something caught her eye "But depending on a price, I may try to get this one." she went next to a display, there was a leather pouch that seemed to be filled with something and next to it there was bunch of different shaped ancient looking coins made of different materials, though what would catch one's eye was that one, they were notably bigger than bits, and second, they all had some unknown language written on the edges, and in middle of each there was odd symbol or symbols on one side, and picture of dragon or dragons on another. 

Ruby knew exactly what these were, but for a pony...or a griffon, these would most likely seem just some old coins, and that was what she hoped for, as it would mean she would be able to get them easily, since she doubted that any creature here was interested in worthless antique coins, and even the seller clearly thought so, because if they thought they were valuable, why would they sell all at once.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Nada thanked with a gesture when Lyrier gave her promise. "Things made of steel that do things." she repeated "That still doesn't really tell what they are, but I guess knowing their purpose helps." "And attack by shadowy figure?" she didn't remember if she had heard about before "So after thousand years they still get attacked by things?" "I guess some things never change."

"I'm honestly not sure about the 'priming for running a nation' part of it, Nerzhei," Twilight admitted. She pulled down the book Nerzhei had asked for and handed it over to the dragon. "But, I believe the requirments for becoming a princess is doing something extraordinary and unheard of? Princess Celestia didn't really inform me on the requirements either," she sighed in realisation, her ears pulling flat against her head.

KARMIC FATE

"No, they never did," Karmic said crisply, having sounded like she's been asked the question multiple times. There was a hint of malice behind the tone as well which may have come from the fact that she was run out of town.

'Never!? Oh, my dear, are you sure?' Atzy teased in Karmic's head. Karmic shook her head to try to ignore Atzy and tapped her head a few times.

"Never," Karmic repeated more to herself for Atzy to listen to than Enzo.

Sun Fire jerked back from the excited outburst. She was used to excited fans, but she hadn't particularly been expecting it this time. She blinked at Needle as she froze, leaning far over the desk. Sun Fire and Zephyr glanced at each other as she sat down, seemingly embarrassed. "Well, at least she didn't ask any questions," Sun Fire thought. "As much as I enjoy talking to fans, I don't think I'm ready to explain everything to everypony I meet."

"Don't worry about it. I was pretty much the same way when Songbird offered to let me sing with her," she said, shaking her head. As much as she had been startled, she didn't want Needle to feel bad or embarrassed. Meeting a pony you look up to for the first time is exciting, no matter who you are. "Is there anything else we need to do, or was that it?"

Zephyr glanced at Needle. While he could understand her excitement, he wasn't sure what would have possessed her to be so animated. Though, being more of an introvert, he always had trouble figuring out why outgoing ponies did anything, really. Raised eyebrows and a giddy smile was about as excited as Zephyr ever got.

With the sudden removal of her spell, the loss of the spot light and generated breeze, The Captain let her raise hoof go limp and a pout appeared on her face.  "Spoil sport..." she sighed, but the nervous expression on the refugee of Troy told her everything she needed to know.  Oh how theatrics were wasted on the youth.  Putting her hoof to her lips to clear her throat then putting it down to smile at Void.  "My apologies.  I'm told I can go a little far at times," she chuckled, but it was just her nature.  Pointing at the large earth pony with her hoof, "No need for you to apologize darling, I can only imagine what hardships an ability like yours could mean to less than understanding nations.  Sure, we have our fair share of grumps in Equestria, but considering the limited range of your ability and living in a town like Ponyville where everypony knows everypony, I'm sure in a short time the town's unicorns will learn and find ways to interact with this knowledge.  Or I'm pretty sure our Princess of Friendship will be more than willing to make it so."  The Captain was careful to not call her ability a gift or a curse, because she pretty well figured the sisters didn't consider it a gift, but it was indeed a blessing in disguise.  "Try to think of it as not bringing our great detective here problems.  You are in fact helping Equestria rid the world of these terrible artifacts dear.  This is one of the main purposes of our agency after all and you brought them to the right place.  So you are in fact, doing Equestria a great service darling," she offered a warm smile.

"Oh, the Coast Guard are real alright, if under appreciated," she informed the curious mare.  "But the conference is just a bunch of boasting and chest puffing really."  The agents present in the lobby knew better though, for their fearless leader was plenty involved in said boasting activities.  Their agency was small, but slowly growing.  It was just hard to find adept ponies with the necessary skills to perform in their niche duties.  As for the threat at hoof, the case was in Rising Dusk's backyard now with her approval.  "Worry not darling, we have prisons designed specifically for immortals," her expression became more serious as she looked to the detective.  "We'll stay here and protect the city while you pursue the dark wizard.  You have your Too-Too darling?"  she inquired and Rising Dusk gently padded the pouch of his hoodie to inform her that he did.  She nodded and turned her attention to the fluttering and shockingly silent Scarlet who hoovered off the floor.  "Your pocket watch dear," she ordered as the detective didn't have a means to teleport on his own power.

The pegasus shook her head vigorously, "Nuh uh!  He's already used it eight times today!" she exclaimed and crossed her forearms in defiance.  "Oh pish posh, I'll make you a new one," the Captain assured the Junior Officer.  The grumpy mare grumbled and fished inside of her saddle bag for the abused pocket watch and fluttered on over to the detective to hoof it over.  The stallion gladly accepted it and gave her a smile for thanks.

Rising Dusk turned to face Void, "I'll return you to your sister and the safety of the workshop first," he assured her and wanted to return the mare to her comfort zone before going off to face Twisted Gears.  Saluting The Captain one last time, he turned and departed the O.M.I. to return to the East side of the city.

@Blitz Boom Serenade nods her thanks, takes a few minutes to walk around the MASSIVE Library that Twilight had, "A Brief History of Time....The Rise and Fall of Æternia....Sealed Evil in a Can: The A-Z Dictionary of the Villains of Equestria." She pulled the last book out, and takes it over to a plush seat. She flips it open, puts her saddlebag next to her and flips open the book, taking care to slowly read so her companion, for lack of a better term could read.

Astral nodded and chuckled a little. "Okay you aren't wrong." She looked to Misty. "All we can do now is to wait for Iron to get back I suppose."
She stood up and headed out. "I'll go take a rest though."

"So...." Misty went over and sat next to Chow. "Any idea what you'll learn first?"

=================================

"Well to be frank, you have no body Emerald, so you could find a creature and just bring it to us."

Sapphire looked at Iron and chuckled. "No need to be lazy like that, you could use your abilities."

"Right." He looked around, searching for any creatures in that room.

"Anyway, I'll look for things then." Sapphire said, moving onto do so.

General Wing looked among them. "So are we going to get Warlock here or what?" He asked, chuckling a bit.
"Or are we going to interview this guy in his cell?"

"Alright, you go make sure you're well rested. We'll keep an eye out for your pops."

This weren't exactly how he figured it'd go, but hey, at least Astral were getting some shut-eye now. Considering she were a pretty strong magic user, it were just good that she'd get recharged. Plus she wouldn't be there to see him potentially collapse of exhaustion at some point, so he might be able to save some dignity there.

Once she were gone and Misty started to ask questions, he figured he could lay it off a bit and let out a long, tired sigh before talking back. Felt rather nice just unwinding like that.

"I dunno 'lil one. Is there a spell for summoning a fluffy pillow? Seems like that'd get mighty handy sometimes. Or perhaps one of them fancy wards you two go 'round with? That'd be a good save now and again."

============================================================================

 

@FanOfManyShows

"I could, but then I might get sacrificed instead."

He wouldn't find any living animals in the basement, as this place had been sealed up well enough to keep even rats out back in the day, yet the upstairs were an abandoned mess. There might be something up there.

Regardless, she'd leave him to complete this meager task, and floated after Sapphire to be sure that she got the right things. Last thing they needed now were a mistake that'd raise her as a flesh abomination, or worse. Not only a painful thing to go through, but also a rather embarrassing sign of shoddy spell work. Not something Emerald would want on her non-existent coat.

============================================================================

 

@FanOfManyShows

"Neither. In cases such as this, it is either the large court room, or the maximum security bunker. The walls are resistant to most magic, which would give us time in case of a breach  and is in my opinion more suitable for a highly dangerous individual like this."

"I'm with Screecher on this one. We can't use the other one in case he gets loose. We can contain the dimwit better in case something goes wrong if he's in the bunker. Gonna say we need a few dozen guards and some backup chains, bolas, the whole nine yards. Prepare for re-containing a dangerous animal basically. Might wanna think of some sedatives too, like sleep darts."

"Agreed. Of we set things in motion now, we could have a trial as early as in one hour. It seems feasible."

============================================================================

 

@Dji

Nerzhei took the book and put it next to her. She would have a look when she had the chance, but for the time being, she had some more things to say about the apparently strange political system of Equestria.

"So instead of anything political, princesses are chosen based on being able to do something unique? I can believe that with Celestia and Luna, considering their role in raising Equestria's sun and moon, but what is your deal then? What can you do of importance, that no other pony are able to?

For that matter, does your deed have to be something of importance, or just unique? Would someone who could raise the dead or successfully hunt and kill great monsters be granted a title as equally as say, a skilled diplomat?"

This were in a way Twilight's role as the princess of friendship, as she did go around and craft peace between Equestria and other races like the dragons, who had been enemies for untold generations. Nerzhei did not know this however, as friendship did not register in such broad scopes to her currently, so she were still trying to find sense in what Twilight said before she had to just go and read up on it.

This weren't exactly how he figured it'd go, but hey, at least Astral were getting some shut-eye now. Considering she were a pretty strong magic user, it were just good that she'd get recharged. Plus she wouldn't be there to see him potentially collapse of exhaustion at some point, so he might be able to save some dignity there.

Once she were gone and Misty started to ask questions, he figured he could lay it off a bit and let out a long, tired sigh before talking back. Felt rather nice just unwinding like that.

"I dunno 'lil one. Is there a spell for summoning a fluffy pillow? Seems like that'd get mighty handy sometimes. Or perhaps one of them fancy wards you two go 'round with? That'd be a good save now and again."

"I could, but then I might get sacrificed instead."

He wouldn't find any living animals in the basement, as this place had been sealed up well enough to keep even rats out back in the day, yet the upstairs were an abandoned mess. There might be something up there.

Regardless, she'd leave him to complete this meager task, and floated after Sapphire to be sure that she got the right things. Last thing they needed now were a mistake that'd raise her as a flesh abomination, or worse. Not only a painful thing to go through, but also a rather embarrassing sign of shoddy spellwork. Not something Emerald would want on her non-existent coat.

"Neither. In cases such as this, it is either the large court room, or the maximum security bunker. The walls are resistant to most magic, which would give us time in case of a breach  and is in my opinion more suitable for a highly dangerous individual like this."

"I'm with Screecher on this one. We can't use the other one in case he gets loose. We can contain the dimvit better in case something goes wrong if he's in the bunker. Gonna say we need a few dozen guards and some backup chains, bolas, the whole nine yards. Prepare for recontaining a dangerous animal basically. Might wanna think of some sedatives too, like sleep darts."

"Agreed. Of we set things in motion now, we could have a trial as early as in one hour. It seems feasible."

Nerzhei took the book and put it next to her. She would have a look when she had the chance, but for the time being, she had some more things to say about the apparantly strange political system of Equestria.

"So instead of anything political, princesses are chosen based on being able to do something unique? I can believe that with Celestia and Luna, considering their role in raising Equestria's sun and moon, but what is your deal then? What can you do of importance, that no other pony are able to?

For that matter, does your deed have to be something of importance, or just unique? Would someone who could raise the dead or successfully hunt and kill great monsters be granted a title as equally as say, a skilled diplomat?"

This were in a way Twilight's role as the princess of friendship, as she did go around and craft peace between Equestria and otger races like the dragons, who had been enemies for untold generations. Nerzhei did not know this however, as friendship did not register in such broad scopes to her currently, so she were still trying to find sense in what Twilight said before she had to just go snd read up on it.

Enzo snorted as the predictable answer came for his question. He had slightly hoped that ponies would be better than this, but alas, it seemed they were still just as flawed as the rest of them. A pity that this had not changed.

"A loss that they could not open their eyes to see the bigger picture, and simply focused on what they disliked. May the sands swallow them whole, and their memory be scattered across the dunes."

It were a fairly popular harsh phrase where he came from, though not often used as an actual magical curse upon other sphinx. Telling someone that you wished they went into the desert and perished along any memory of them, tended to be seen as enough to make your point, and regardless, were mostly only said to outsiders, before they got exiled from the sphinx's domain. Some had likely made it out of the desert regardless of these *best wishes*, but it were well known that the sands had claimed many a victim, and those who made it, would not come back and risk another trip out there. It were a rather effective practise for dealing with undesirables honestly.

The separation of books were coming along well, and at this point, they'd be about 2/3's done with the pile.

============================================================================

@Dji

"It's the fastest way to get to Thorax's hive far as I were told. We won't get near the desert though. Nope, totally different direction through, and then we still have quite a walk ahead of us. No worries 'bout the wildlife though. I've been resting in the forest the past few days and I've made sure to show the predators that there's some ponies you shouldn't mess with. These golden sickles ain't just ornamental, you know."

Granted, they were mainly used to harvest herbs and other things he needed for his beverages, but if need be, Happy had gotten quite good at using them as a weapon too. His queen had insisted on it, and since the blades had some small amounts of anti.magic in them, it had sure helped him throughout the years to be able to slice through protective wards keeping him from escaping or a magically charged icicle getting shot at him or something like that. Life on the road weren't always peaceful and full of joy. Darn highway robbers and monsters everywhere, along with guards that got too zealous in detaining any sort of outsider for his taste. Some strange countries outside of Equestria, though the robbers were still here. They were just pushovers in this country, compared to what he were used to, so not really a big deal.

"You any good at fighting if it came down to it by the way? Like, say we got ambushed by some highwaymen. Would I have to beat 'em up alone, or could you hold your own there? And relax, I ain't saying to, y'know, go All the way there. Just roughing 'em up a bit until they bugger off."

================================================================================================

 

@Moonlit

"I've seen that before."

Last saw the book of monsters and villains that were opened up and read/presented by Serenade, and at first hadn't cared much. That were until she saw some depictions of creatures that she had seen in the line of duty before. The first being a particular nasty Aethersworn Wyrm named Glutton, which were essentially at the time of publishing, a twenty six feet long snake-like creature with fifteen pale eyes, a massive jaw, and a constant, flimsy looking blue aura around it from years of eating magical beings. This hadn't been one of the creatures attacking the shrine thankfully, but she had seen it when she were a teenager, bursting forth on the battlefield from the trees and feasting merely on a particularly large beast the Manetids had released to try and break down their walls. The insectoid ponies had tried to control said wyrm after that, and met with disastrous results, before the wyrm had dragged the remaining parts of the beast away underground. They didn't see it again after that, thankfully, yet the rest of Equestria had not been so lucky, as it were drawn towards areas with high density of magic. Be it in leylines, a bed of magical gemstones, or towns with an increasing population of unicorns and spellbooks. It made no difference, and it were difficult to deal with, as it had devoured enough magic in its abnormally long life to be able to instinctively use some of it's own.

A minor villain in a way, as it were more or less driven by hunger more than malice, but a notable entry nonetheless.

"Have it been vanquished, or is it still out there?"

@Rising Dusk

On 3/30/2019 at 1:34 PM, Rising Dusk said:

 "My apologies.  I'm told I can go a little far at times," she chuckled, but it was just her nature.  Pointing at the large earth pony with her hoof, "No need for you to apologize darling, I can only imagine what hardships an ability like yours could mean to less than understanding nations.  Sure, we have our fair share of grumps in Equestria, but considering the limited range of your ability and living in a town like Ponyville where everypony knows everypony, I'm sure in a short time the town's unicorns will learn and find ways to interact with this knowledge.  Or I'm pretty sure our Princess of Friendship will be more than willing to make it so."

"Equestria have b-been very welcoming of my s-sister and me. Princess C-Celestia even w-welcomed us herself, after P-Ponyville got attacked and she m-met us. She uhm... G-Gives hugs. It c-confused us a lot."

It had really been a surprise honestly, as rulers were not something they knew as being that up and personal with their subjects most of the times, and even less so with outsiders. Combine that with the way that they had been raised to look at Equestria, and in particular the apparent tyrant Celestia, and this friendly gesture and kind behavior in general had swiped the hooves away from underneath them. The princess had been nothing like the image they had built up from the stories, and thank the heavens for that, as their residency in Equestria had been dependent on whatever or not they would be able to convince her to give them a chance. Something that she thankfully had, along with so much more, as were evident by for example her wish for the dangerous artifacts they carried to be a burden they could get rid off, by going here and working with the O.M.I.

"Princess T-Twilight were... Different. S-She asked to t-try something with us when we had t-time. The l-look in her eyes were k-kinda weird, but she s-seemed harmless enough."

An interaction that were best not thought too much about, as the brief, yet memorable encounter during Celestia's meeting with them had made the small hairs on Void's back stand tall. There was just something in the princesses whole demeanor as she learned where they came from and what they could do that made her appear more of a mad scientist than a princess like Celestia, though as she were the ruler of their town - far as she were aware - they'd have to comply sooner or later. Hopefully it wouldn't be as bad as her paranoia told her it could end up being.

On 3/30/2019 at 1:34 PM, Rising Dusk said:

"Try to think of it as not bringing our great detective here problems.  You are in fact helping Equestria rid the world of these terrible artifacts dear.  This is one of the main purposes of our agency after all and you brought them to the right place.  So you are in fact, doing Equestria a great service darling,

"Null and I h-have been collecting these t-things for twenty years. S-Seemed too dangerous to l-leave laying around, b-but we're happy to get r-rid of them. It's hard to c-constantly worry about dropping one, and c-cause some sort of havoc. The off- I-I mean, Detective, have been v-very helpful in that, and k-kind too."

Seems like she had been wrong about Rising's official rank then. Hopefully that weren't a big deal, and he could forgive her for only using it now, though it didn't make it less awkward. Though Void still tried to return the smile given by their captain, even if it were somewhat strained and forced. Seemed like it were what she had to do in the given situation.

The news that the Coast Guard were real made the smile somewhat more strained, but she supposed it made sense enough. And again, she had just heard one version of how they were, and this were just confirmation that the agency itself were a thing. Perhaps when there were more calm in things, she could ask about them some more, and see what was the real story with them, though it were currently a very low priority, compared to the issue of Twisted and his inevitable attack on the town.

On 3/30/2019 at 1:34 PM, Rising Dusk said:

"Worry not darling, we have prisons designed specifically for immortals," her expression became more serious as she looked to the detective.  "We'll stay here and protect the city while you pursue the dark wizard.  You have your Too-Too darling?"  she inquired and Rising Dusk gently padded the pouch of his hoodie to inform her that he did.  She nodded and turned her attention to the fluttering and shockingly silent Scarlet who hoovered off the floor.  "Your pocket watch dear,"

Whilst this interaction went on, the evil wizard would make his move once again on the town in three places.

1. The Boom Workshop, where six dozen wickermen with large axes would wander through a rift towards the gates, silently encroaching the building, guided by a grey stallion with a cruel grin, fogged over eyes, and a staff of thorns in his grip. The way his leathery skin seemed sunken in over his bony body, and the various magical runes on his being, would make it apparent that he were either risen, or were a frail, malnourished pony being controlled by Twisted.

2. The largest elementary school. A couple of rifts would open across the building to unleash a horde of hoofsized, emerald spiders who would pour into the halls and capture whoever they would encounter, and spin them in translucent, diamond-grade hard webbing, and then drag the cocooned individuals towards the gymnastic hall, where a stitched together abomination of spider and pony would await near a rift to drag student and teacher alike through to the the other side, which seemed to be an immensely large hive with something huge awaiting in the darkness, sporting an array of massive eyes, each the size of Rising's entire head. Both the abomination and the thing in the darkness would communicate through clicking sounds, and await their minions harvest.

3. Main street. Three ponies wearing thick, leathery clothing and masks of burlap and hay that left no visible parts of a face, nor space for a mouth or eye holes, would emerge from a short-lived rift and start wandering around in a silent group, towards whatever breathing creatures near them. Around each of their necks, were a pulsating thing resembling somewhat a small beehive, yet looking sickened, and sprouting wicker wasps that would sting ponies with a concentrated poison that would quickly subvert the mind of whoever their stinger were embedded into. Long as they were still attached, the being would go around and catch others, dragging them towards the hive masters to be infected. The longer one would wait, the worse of an issue this would become, as a large horde of citizens would soon be converted into servants.

Void knew none of these things, so when the conversation changed into the captain and Scarlet speaking of making a new magic watch, as well as Detective Rising wanting to return Void to the workshop, she would just nod and get ready to leave with him. Unless of course, she would be stopped by him, or somepony else in here taking notice of the sudden attacks and realizing that the next wave had started, and amateur hour were over. It were time for an actual assault.

=====================================================================================================

 

@Zephyr / Karou

"No that should be everything. Again, I'm truly sorry about that. I can assure you that I won't be there when the doctor checks you out, so please don't be worried about coming in here."

"We can all get over-excited at times miss Needle. You needn't worry yourself about that, yet for the time being, perhaps this would be our cue to leave for the time being, before this turns more awkward for either party. Shall we?"

He'd gesture towards the door, whilst giving a bow of his neck to Needle. Hopefully with them being gone, things could ease up before a tension started up. Not a violent one, as neither party seemed like they were getting aggressive, yet he could well recognize an awkward tension, and that wouldn't usually get better by simply sticking around and trying your best to make things work. It were better to take some distance, then try again another time, when things had calmed down.

Once they would be outside, and headed away from the hospital, he would start speaking again. Provided they did leave after all, as the following would not happen, if Sun and/or Zephyr decided to stay in the hospital.

"It seems like you have found one fan in town at least, though I do hope that others will be more... Restricted in their approach. As much as she reacted on instinct before thought and regretted things, I could see similar results becoming tedious and somewhat concerning."

====================================================================================================

 

@Catpone Cerberus

"Old coins, huh? Well, some of 'em might be worth a good deal, but I dunno, this here seems like a low auction. The state of those things are a joke. Hey Marley, you know if there's anything special 'bout these?"

Marley came closer and looked, starring through a few of the coins and eventually pointed towards one with a crude picture of a griffon on it.

"I know this one to be one used in Griffonstone when we were trying to establish our own coin, before converting to the bit system the ponies use. It may have a little historical value, though the others I couldn't say. May merely be a collectors item for those who wishes to gain various random coins, and considering the pouch is not laid out, but instead holds some coins within, I have a feeling that most within are likely low rung, worthless coins, with only a few good ones to make one believe that the whole collection are worth something. It would not be the first time we have seen such a thing, though why it would be brought here to this auction of all places, I couldn't tell. Perhaps one of the coins were stolen from a collection? We will see I suppose."

Honestly he weren't sure what caught the attention of Ruby. It could surely not be that these were just shiny, right? Had to have something to do with the coins shown. Perhaps some of those with dragons on them? Marley had no idea where or when that were a currency, but it were the best guess he had at the current time.

=====================================================================================================

 

@Catpone Cerberus

The phoenix kept cooing and chirping for a while after the question of the shadowy figure attacking came up, during which Lyriel kept quiet and listened to what he were saying. It were a few minutes before it stopped again and he rested his voice and feather again.

"It seemed to be about what I had heard from others too. A large creature of shadow came in from the old castle, and amidst a strange weather pattern, came in to attack the ponies of the town. Much were destroyed in the fight, but it sounds as if they managed to defeat it without suffering casualties, and have since found themselves with having to deal with the aftermath. That being their homes ruined, and the town in shambles. It seems as if they have repaired much of their nests now though, so that is good.

According to Agni, it is not uncommon for something to attack the town every now and again, yet avoiding the forest mostly. Still rather peculiar. to me."

Seemed concerning to keep a town in a high risk zone like this, yet focus had not been there to leave her with a chance to ask a local about it, considering the other, more pressing matters at hand. Perhaps they simply felt there were no need to be concerned, as they managed to fight back what attacked them? It may well be.

======================================================================================================

 

@EQ_Theta

"Seen many plants. Do not remember that one."

She would have to find these sorts of plants one day and see them for herself. Pictures and nature could show different things, and she were a curious sort, so at some point she'd go out and look for these, the next time she were near the longma village. Seemed to be a thing specific to their area, from what Lin said. Seeing as how they used it for healing, perhaps she could give it to that strange zebra in the forest outside Ponyville too? Omen had wanted to meet her for a while, but something kept her away all the time. Perhaps with a gift of some funny herbs she would let her get near.

"Will find them one day. Reading now, yes? Want to learn."

This were a thing that Omen would really like to be able to, along with writing, since she could then start to understand more of the world around her. Wandering around at night and just in general and looking at things, she saw tons of letters, but they just meant nothing, so she didn't get far on understand things. Many times she had ended up wandering into one shop thinking it were somewhere else, which had gotten extra weird for most of those who did not decide to just get away from her on first sight, or when she started to *talk* to them. Perhaps if she could read, things would be different. Plus she could start to read the books and such she found in trash cans, or when she ported into a library to see how it were in there. That could help pass the time during some nights, like Lin did.

====================================================================================================

 

@Lucid_Nightlight

*slurping sounds*

Anomaly were currently drinking a large soda through a straw, just admiring the panic and chaos that the evil laugh had caused, and weren't really listening into things, nor thinking much on terrorizing the locals. They looked pretty freaked out already, right? What were they supposed to do about that?

"This could use more battery acid, and a slice of lemon."

Shrugging, she threw the glass at a random passerby, and it turned int a jelly that engulfed the pony in a ball of sentient jelly. His head would be free though so he could breathe, yet the bubbles still running through the jelly as it slurped around trying to draw in more ponies should tickle a lot.

"So, are we gonna do the reforming thing now? And how're we gonna do it? Just slap him and say *Bad bad, naughty boy?*"

"How about you reform him by asking very nicely."

"Yeah! Then we can start the wedding!"

Lumen stopped them right there.

"Shouldn't we do some sort of double date first?"

"Sounds like a good idea to me! Let's create the most chaotic restaurant possible!"

@Blitz Boom Serenade looked over the entry, "According to this....Vanquished, Imprisoned in Nidavellir..."she blinked, "Why does that sound familiar?" She shrugged, and turned the pages....then stopped...Three names are written along the top, along with a large illustration that took up the majority of the page.

(Because I lack any knowledge on the Equestrian alphabet, I'll use English as a substitute common language for Omen)

Lin didn't exactly know how to begin this lesson. She doesn't even remember how her mother used to teach her how to read, speak, and write. It all seemed like a natural thing to come to her but she knew that was never the case. Everyone had to start somewhere; Omen's situation is more confusing as she already knew how to speak and likely should have some measure of the basics. Unfortunately, Mother might not have covered that and Discord definitely neglected that part of her upbringing. Perhaps there was a way to break down a word to its most basic components and maybe work from that. 

"Let's try this," the longma picked up a stick nearby and gestured Omen to come closer to the fire. There she began drawing five letters on the ground, illuminated by weak light and hoped they were visible enough. "Basics first. In order to read, write, and speak, we need to learn about words. A word is composed of letters and those have their own sounds. I've drawn five vowels on the ground: A, E, I, O, and U. We'll begin with short sounds. Say I use the word 'Bad,' the A in bad is a short sound so it sounds like 'ah.'"

"The same goes with the other letters here. E for bed, I for bit, O for cot, U for hug. Now you try. And if you need me to help you out, just ask."

With that, Lin proceeded to list the five words under each of the individual vowels they contain. This would then be the part that requires extreme patience, both for herself and for her sister. Sen would probably be involved in this later down the line but that will be a bridge for them to cross when it comes. Right now, it is a lesson on simple vowel sounds: short and long, maybe even moving up to vowel pairs if Omen can quickly pick up on this.

"That's what I'm counting on." Ruby simply stated, she wasn't going to tell that thanks to her extra sense she knew that the bag was filled exactly what it should be. "Even the seller clearly knows they are worthless since they aren't selling them separately, so I should be able to get it with pretty fair price." the part about the historical value amused her, not because she found the idea of old stuff being worth more stupid, she did think so but it wasn't the reason, but actually it was because of Marley didn't know, she was curious to know how he and Spicy would react if they knew the real age of the coins. There was a one thing she agreed on with Marley, why were they here from all places, or in the same topic, why were they in Equestria?

 

---------------------------------------------------

"It wasn't that uncommon back when I lived with ponies either, and back then the current town didn't even exist." Nada mentioned "Though I do wonder if the old town still exists or if it was eventually destroyed by something, not that I really remember where it actually situated so that I could check." she would need to figure it out if she eventually would able to catch up with pony history.

Sun Fire waved to Needle before following Briar out of the hospital. While she couldn't have called the encounter ideal, it certainly could have been worse. Zephyr glanced at Needle again as he turned to follow his sister. "Learning to think before you speak is a valuable skill," he thought.

Sun Fire nodded in agreement. "I hope so, too. I don't know if I can take many more situations like that right now." She looked up to the darkening sky and sighed, a worried look on her face. "Maybe we should have stayed in Manehattan a while longer. I mean, I'm glad we're here, I just don't think I'm ready for all the questions that are inevitably going to be asked. Constantly reliving everything that happened for every new pony I meet."

"Ponies still would have asked questions in Manehattan, and they would have been rude about it," Zephyr said, shaking his head. "If you had stayed, you just would have become reclusive trying to avoid everypony. You're better off facing them here than there. There's no friendlier place in all of Equestria. Or so I've heard."
