Private Artificial Love. (with Dynamo Pad)

Dynamo Pad:
As they explained, Dynamo listened intently as the two went over their sides of the conversation. "I can believe that you get a big and/or special custom order from time to time. At the same time, it's usually the standard, everyday order. I can understand Hearth's Warming, or any other type of holiday. I just never expected the Gala to be a part of special custom orders. Seeing how it's more of a social gathering with dancing and other things that are a part of it." He blinked in surprise, before listening to Lunar's explanation. "I can imagine as you wouldn't want to make something that would give power to the wrong hooves. Anything like being able to fly and other abilities is understandable, but still. I don't know what I would want/get, but I'll let you know if I'm interested in buying anything. I almost forget that you make jewelry because Sunlight told me that you've made many artifacts. Especially with the rings you gave Sunny and I to help with that foul magic." He chuckled sheepishly with a smile. "At any rate, I'm glad to know that things have been going smoothly for you both. I hope your businesses continue to prosper and be successful." He smiles, taking another sip of his beverage.

Dew Drop:
As she continued to listen to him whisper, Dew tilted her head as Jade wasn't making much sense to her. "Show? Y-You mean that you have to show me something i-important? F-Forgive me if I sound a little contused. I j-just feel lost, but I f-feel as if I understand. I d-don't know how you were being dishonest, b-but you seemed m-mostly honest when we talked all those times. I-I'll take your word, but y-you can tell me anything. T-That's what friends are for, after all. I'm not sure on f-finding a private place, b-but if you have any idea, t-then by all means." She explains, trying to figure out a hiding place for the two of them to talk. She knew if they had to, then they would go back to the flower shop to discuss what was going on.

Sunlight:
"Well, I do focus mainly on artifacts, but because magical materials don't grow on trees and the customers aren't that common due to how specific need one has to have to need magical artifacts, I have to make basic jewelry too to feed myself." Lunar added, Frail didn't have anything else to add "That brought to mind, can you guess what basic jewelry is surprisingly popular?" she waited for the response, and if it was wrong, she would say "Replicas of the Alicorn amulet, they are smaller than the original of course to avoid confusing anypony, but they are surprisingly popular."  Sunlight meanwhile had just drank her drink and listened as the others talked

Jade:
"Well, like I said, I haven't lied to you, so of course I sound honest, not telling something is also dishonest." Jade pointed out "And your shop will do fine if you don't know any place else, we can fly ther so that it won't take too long to get there."

Dynamo Pad:
"I can imagine that it must take time to gather the necessary materials to make that certain magical artifact. I guess it's rare to get someone, who needs a magical artifact. Meaning, the jewelry on the side is to help out. It's good to plan ahead in case of an emergency, in my opinion." Dynamo placed a hoof to his chin as he thought about Lunar's question. "Hmm...I'm guessing the popular jewelry would be a necklace, or even a ring?" As the mention of her answer, the blue unicorn raised an eyebrow in surprise. "A replica of an alicorn amulet? Really? Now that's something that one would never expect to hear. I guess the amulet is just for show and wouldn't have any powers, right? That way, no kinds of chaos would get out of hoof, while the pony and/or creature is wearing said amulet. I guess one would want a replica because of how beautiful the design of the amulet looks." He thought to himself as he took another sip of his beverage. As he placed the plastic cup back on the table, he looked over to Sunlight with a soft smile. "How are you doing, Sunny? Did you want to go back onto the dance floor, or did you want to continue to rest for a little bit?"

Dew Drop:
"N-Now, I wouldn't say s-something like that. If you are trying to p-protect yourself, or even t-those who are closest to you, then keeping a s-secret isn't really dishonest." She shook her head as the ebony Pegasus didn't know of any other place to hide and talk about Jade's discussion. "Unfortunately, I-I don't know of a place. I g-guess it's okay to go back to the flower shop. Flying will be best, s-so we can try to continue heading to the park a-afterwards, if t-that's okay." She tried to sound reassuring, but she didn't get what was making Jade seem so worried. Seeing that they were still holding onto each other's wings. She placed a soft, yet calming hoof upon his shoulder. All the while, trying to give him a smile for reassurance. "If you want to go, then w-we can leave right now. T-The soon you want to discuss, then the sooner y-you'll feel better about t-telling me w-what's on your mind."

Sunlight:
"It is called replica for a reason." Lunar simply pointed out.

"I'll need to visit the mares' room first." Sunlight replied, finishing her drink "Then we could dance a bit more." she continued smiling as she got up, Lunar and Frail said they would go too and got up, leaving just Golden with Dynamo. When the three mares were gone, Golden spoke "You two are a good match."

Jade:
"Yeah, I think we should get it out of the way right away." 
Jade said "Because it will only bother me more and more as we get closer." he looked to nothing for a second, he finally understood how Sunlight felt, what it was like to fear the opinion of others about something that wasn't your choice. "So let's go I guess?"

Dynamo Pad:
Dynamo could only nod at Lunar's response as he didn't have anything to say. He thought the idea of wanting replica's of an old artifact was pretty interesting. "Okay and no problem. I'll wait here for you. Just don't miss me too much, while you're gone." He chuckled and grinned playfully, while he saw Sunlight, Lunar and Frail make their way towards the rest room. His ears perked as he suddenly turned his attention over to Golden. "Thank you and that's really kind of you to say that, Golden. In the beginning, I guess I was pretty worried. Seeing how I like games and anime. I was afraid she thought my interests would be weird and/or boring, but she showed me that it doesn't really matter. All that really matters is how you feel about the individual in your heart and if you enjoy spending time with them. Even after what had happened yesterday, I know that I truly love and appreciate Sunlight, no matter what. I can say the same about you and the others. You, Frail and Lunar are really nice friends and I'm glad to see Sunlight has such great friends in all of you." He says with a kind smile.

Dew Drop:
"I-I've been there in terms when it involves knowing s-something, but then I can't tell anyone, until the time is right. I-It's happened when watching a video, or even a T-TV show." She was caught off guard as he mentioned about the two of them becoming closer. With how he said he was beginning to like her and have a sort of crush on her. However, she didn't think the green Pegasus would say something along those lines. However, she could only nod, while trying to find a bit of courage in both her voice and her heart. "O-Okay. Let's get going, Jade. I-I promise that I'm right here for you." She began to lead the way as the two started to make their exit of the museum. As soon as they would exit the building, she would take flight as they would go and make their way to the flower shop.

Golden:
"That's exactly why you fit so well together..." Golden said "...Your faults that if I'm being honest aren't the most attractive thing for most of us in that way, are the exact thing Sunlight needed." "I apologize my possibly insulting wording, but I don't know how else to put it, you both are in a way misfits, so it's good you found each other." "And for the friend part, it's more that I'm lucky to have them three rather than any of them are to have me, because I know sometimes I limit what they can do, and yet they keep me around." 

Jade:
"I appreciate your promise, and I truly want to believe you, but due past experiences, I can't stop worrying until the moment of truth." Jade said rather carefully, and after some silence he spoke again "I'll give you a little thought to think about , let's say you meet a pony and become great friends...or more with them, but at some point, either by they telling you or through some outside source you learn that they aren't what you though, and I don't mean personality or things like that, but that they aren't a pony at all, but actually something that just pretends to be a pony. What would you do? Assuming their intent isn't bad?"

Dynamo smiled at her kinds words, but tilted his head in confusion at her statement. "It's nice to know that Sunlight and I are a great match for each other. Although, I'm not insulted, but confused somewhat. When you say misfits, do you mean attitude and/or behavior that sets one apart from others? If so, then I guess I could see what you mean by that. I would mostly say goofball would be a better term, but I could be wrong." He frowned slightly as it seemed like Golden was putting herself down from what she was telling him. "Now, I wouldn't say that. I know that we have our flaws, while we worry if that flaw limits us and others in many different ways. The only thing is that it becomes a limit if we allow it to be that way. From what I've seen these past two days, I can tell that all of you are very close friends. Sunlight, Frail and Lunar have you as a friend because they want you and not because they keep you around. The same goes for me. I mean, yeah playing video games would be different and all that stuff. However, it's not about what's on the outside, but what's on the inside that matters. I mean what I say in that you're a true friend, Golden. I'm grateful to have you and the others as my friend."

Dew Drop:
The ebony Pegasus didn't say anything as she continued to listen to Jade speak. At the mention of his idea to think about, Dew hummed in thought. "Hmm...t-that is definitely something to think about. I-If you want my opinion, then I-I would say this. If that pony and/or individual pretended to be a p-pony, then I would say that t-they had their reasons. Either they were worried, or t-they wanted to fit in like everyone else. T-The only thing I can t-think of is the changelings. Given how they are able to change into other ponies a-and other creatures." She says, exiting the museum with Jade and kicking off of the ground. "Ready to head b-back to the flower shop? It should only take us a f-few minutes to fly back to the shop." She says, waiting for Jade, before the two would go and take off towards the flowers shop. She soon began to wonder if Jade was actually a changeling in disguise, but she soon doubted that theory. Remembering that the changelings had a new leader, while some changelings had gone to some school to learn about friendship. So, changelings weren't like the used to be in the past, but what Jade had told her was still confusing.

Golden:
"Behavior mostly..." Golden said "...you both act differently to what some may think is normal, both of yours history with bullying and such is a good indicator of that."


"And no, there's no point in denying it, it does limit things, for example, I can't really do  anything else than sit here, because due to how I navigate, I can't handle crowds, I get lost in them. And they being great friends don't go against what I said about being lucky that they want to be my friends." "I appreciate that you're trying to change my mind, but I can't change reality, and when the reality is that I can't do everything that others can, there's no point in trying to convince myself otherwise, and it's better to accept that it is the case, and to realize the negatives it brings, because if you can't accept that others are negatively affected by your limits, it will only bring more problems. 

Jade:
Jade didn't say anything and just nodded, before taking off towards the flower shop. He knew his question would make Dew suspect things and probably confuse her, but that was exactly what his goal had been, because he figured that if she was already thinking about the possibility of Jade being a changeling or something similar, her reaction would even in the worst case scenario be less insistence.

 

(I will do the timeskip in the next post, try to end/conclude the Dynamo-Golden conversation if you can)

Dynamo Pad:
"Oh, I see. Now I can understand what you're trying to say. Thank you for clearing up any sort of confusion, Golden. I guess it's good to act differently from the crowd. Sunlight is different from the other's that I've met and I like her for who she is. I remember she told me a few things of her past with bullies, but I knew I could relate and be there for her." He frowned as he listened to Golden's explanation. He wanted to argue, but he knew that it wouldn't be right to argue. Not only because they were at a party, but because he didn't want to make her upset. Not only that, but the others would wonder what had happened and the blue unicorn knew that he never wanted to start any sort of trouble. He also remembered that there were times that there would be times where he couldn't change anyone's mind on anything. So, it was best to leave well enough alone, in his opinion. "Okay. I know I won't be able to change your mind, but I just wanted to let you know. Even if you put it that way, I'll always see you as a friend. I get that some ponies and/or creatures may not understand, but I feel as if I can. I know it's not the same, but I wasn't born with magic. The doctor's told my parents that they thought my horn was a birth defect. I was able to change and gain the ability to use magic. Like I said, I know it's not exactly the same. However, I feel as if I could relate to what you're going through. I just wanted you to know because you're my friend, no matter what, Golden." He says, trying to offer a kind smile to Golden.

Dew Drop:
As the two started flying back towards the flower shop, Dew would occasionally look back to make sure that Jade was still next to her. She was still wondering what had been going on, but decided not to force Jade to say anything. She didn't want to scare him away, but she still wanted to have some answers. She sighed softly as she wanted to help her friend/crush, but she didn't have the answers. She was thankful that the flowers shop was within their sights as it felt awkward just flying and staying silent.

Golden not being able to tell that Dynamo smiled, she didn't return it, and just nodded.

Some moments later:

The mares:
Lunar and Frail appeared, but Sunlight wasn't with them, and they seemed confused when she wasn't with Dynamo either "Where is Sunlight? she said she would come here." "She left some time before us because we were middle of a conversation." they looked around for a bit "Did she get stuck in the crowd?" Lunar activated her wings and took flight, flying around the place to see if Sunlight was among the crowd.

Jade:
After they had gotten into the shop and door was locked and Jade had made clear there wasn't anything unusual, he moved to face Dew and sighed deeply "I won't waste any time with this because it would be pointless, I just beg you to not freak out." he then said "And though it is better to show you, I need to tell you what to expect, I'm not a pony, nor am I a changeling.....I'm not really sure if I'm even living creature." after finishing his sentence, Jade's disguise faded away.

Some moments later:

Dynamo Pad:
Dynamo took Golden's nod as an understanding and decided the conversation was finished. He glanced over to see Luna and Frail were returning to the table. He waved to them, but soon noticed that Sunlight wasn't with the group. At the mention of Frail's question, Dynamo raised an eyebrow in confusion. "Wait. She's not with you? I mean, I was mostly talking to Golden the entire time you three were gone. She hasn't shown up since then." He begun to panic slightly, but tried to remain calm. Sunlight was an adult and she could take care of herself. As Lunar activated her wings, he watched as she took to the skies to see if she could spot the orange unicorn. "Do you see her anywhere, Lunar? What were you able to find?" He held his breath as he hoped with all of his heart that Sunlight could be located.

Dew Drop:
After making their way back towards the flower shop, Dew Drop made her descent as she landed back on the sidewalk. She made her way to the door and unlocked said door, before opening the shop up, once more. She opened the door for Jade to allow him to enter, before entering the building herself. She made sure to keep the sign on the door to closed as she wasn't in the mood to have customers to barge into the shop. She lead Jade into the back of the store towards the flower nursery. Nobody would be able to see them in case Jade had something to talk about. At the mention of not freaking out, Dew began to become worried. "I-I don't know if I can promise that, b-but I'll try not to freak out." Her eyes widened slightly at the mention of not being a pony, or even a changeling. "I c-can understand the whole not being a changeling, b-but not being a pony? If you a-aren't a pony, then..." She stopped as she started to see what was most likely a disguise starting to vanish. She couldn't begin to fathom as to what was going on, but she decided to stay quiet and waited to see what Jade would say next.

The mares:
Lunar had landed somewhere near the doors before she had made her way back, "She isn't among the crowd as far as I see, the security guard at the door hadn't seen her exit either, though he admitted he could have just forgotten if he did see her, since there's quite a lot of ponies moving in and out of this room..." "...I'll go to check the other mares' rooms and go ask if the security at some other door has seen her." she then took off again. "I have a bad feeling about this." 

Jade:
Jade waited for a moment if Dew would say something, but since she didn't, he spoke "Firstly I'll answer the questions I assume are the first ones you ask..." "I don't know what I am, why I exist, or who has created me. Yes, Sunlight is like me too, but she's most likely newer since she's a bit better at everything. Yes, Dynamo knows, and no, our other friends don't know."

Dynamo Pad:
As he saw Lunar making her way back to the group, Dynamo frowned as the search hadn't given them any results in finding Sunlight. "This just doesn't make any sort of sense. I know Sunlight wouldn't run off on her own, unless she had a reason. It's a shame that there's a lot of ponies here, but it's a party, after all. I'm just wondering if she maybe had met somepony else that she may have known." He wished Lunar luck, before nodding in agreement with Golden. All the while, shaking slightly as he tried to stay calm. "I don't know why, but I'm starting to have a bad feeling too. I just hope Sunny will be okay and that we can find her."

Dew Drop:
As Jade's disguise faded away, Dew was surprised to see an artificial/plastic body of a Pegasus pony, who was standing right in front of her. She almost couldn't believe what she had seen. She was scared, but only because she didn't understand. After hearing Jade's change in voice, Dew snapped back into reality and took a small, tentative step forward. "J-Jade? I-Is that really you? Please, f-forgive me for not answering right away. It's just...I didn't know that this w-was what you were talking about." She listened as she nodded towards every question she would have asked Jade. "S-So, that's what you had meant by your recent answers from today and yesterday. I-I almost found it strange how you thought on certain things, b-but now it all makes sense. Now I c-can see how your sister is s-sort of like you, but d-different, in a way. I didn't think t-that somepony else knew about this secret, b-but I can trust Dynamo. D-Do you know how long you've been like this?"

The mares:
"I don't see who she would know that she wouldn't invite to here rather than staying with them." Frail pointed out. Other than that neither of the two mares said anything, as they too were worried. Lunar came back after a moment "She wasn't in any of the mares' rooms, but somepony around the back door had seen somepony orange go outside pretty quickly from the side door, but hadn't paid too much attention since that's where ponies go smoke...." "..I checked it but she wasn't anywhere I could see...I think she has left in a hurry for some reason." 

Jade:
"As far as we know, we have never been anything else, we just woke up about 15 years ago with plenty of information but no memories of doing anything before that moment." "We knew who we were, where we lived, where we were....lot of stuff like that, and things you would know if you had grown up in Equestria like its history, but we have never experienced those things, we just knew them."

Dynamo Pad:
As Dynamo listened to Frail and Golden's remarks, he tried to keep thinking on who Sunlight would know that would cause her to leave. "I'm trying to think of anypony, but I can't think of anyone else." As Lunar had returned to give them an update on the search, Dynamo began to shake slightly in fear. He was afraid something like this could happen. He wished he knew of a way to track Sunlight, but he knew it was next to impossible. "If she left in a hurry, then she either went to look for Jade, or maybe she needed to leave for some unknown reason? If that's the case, then maybe we should leave and go find her. You said that somepony saw an orange pony, right? I guess that's our best lead, at the moment." He looked to the others, while preparing to run out of the hotel to search for her marefriend.

Dew Drop:
As she listened to Jade's explanation of his artificial form, she began to feel calm as she listened intently to his words. "S-So, you woke up 15 years ago and have most of Equestria's history, b-but you haven't actually lived through it? That seems r-really strange, but I guess I can understand. N-Now that I know what you were talking to me about e-earlier." She started to take a small step, before slowly walking over towards Jade. "I-I know this is a bit of a surprise and it'll take time to get used to k-knowing your secret, but I'm really glad you told me. T-That must have taken a lot of courage to find somepony you trust. I-In a way, I think I also understand how you and Sunlight care for b-both Dynamo and I. If you find that one special pony that makes you truly happy and if they accept you for who y-you are, then you both are truly happy. I-I mean, it seems like Dynamo makes Sunlight truly happy. I p-promise that I won't tell anypony and I won't run away. It's because my f-feelings haven't changed. I-I still like you for who you are, Jade." She smiled softly, while wrapping her arms around Jade and pulling him into a hug.

The mares:
"That was actually what I was going to suggest, I have checked the building so only place she can be is somewhere outside." Lunar stated "We should use that door since it's the one she most likely exited from..." she pointed at a side door "...It won't be easy to find her since one can make it pretty far in this time, but it's better than waiting here." Lunar then flew to the door to wait for the others, and Frail helped Golden to get faster through the crowd.

Jade:
When Dew hugged him, Jade let out a sigh of relieve, but other than that didn't say or do anything, and since he was out of his disguise, all Dew would be able to feel was the warm plastic like material. After some silence, he spoke again "Is there something else you want to ask about me or Sunlight relating to this?"

Dynamo Pad:
"Okay and I guess it's the only lead we got. Sunlight and I have gone jogging, so I don't doubt that she might have gotten far away in this amount of time. It's fairly early though, so there might not be that many ponies roaming around town. Plus, Sunlight is wearing a dress. Which means she might be easy to spot in case there is a crowd." Dynamo watched as Lunar made her way to the side door, before heading over to that location. He tried not to run so fast with his bad hooves, but he knew he had to push through the pain, so he could find Sunlight. He glanced back every now and then to make sure that Frail and Golden were still making their way through the crowd.

Dew Drop:
As Dew pulled away from the hug, she tilted her head, before shaking her head as she was unsure. "I-I don't have any questions, at the moment. I might have some questions later on, but I-I think I understand you a little better now. I can see w-why you couldn't answer c-certain things, o-or how you g-gave me your answers yesterday a-at the Statue of Friendship. T-Thank you again for being honest with m-me, Jade."

The Mares:
"The problem isn't how far she is, it's to what direction she went to. And that's only if you ignore every building she could go into." Frail pointed out to Dynamo when Lunar had left. Frail and Golden followed Dynamo without any problems, and besides few annoyed glares from those who where pushed out of the way, no pony paid any attention to them. When they got to Lunar, she said, "I'll fly above you so I can see a bigger area, but first we should choose a direction...." she turned to Dynamo "...Is there any place besides the hotel where you think she could go to? I know she isn't necessarily going there, but it's really all we have at the moment." 

Jade:
Jade returned his disguise "No, thank you for not freaking out or worse." "Not that I didn't trust you to handle it well, I just have been wrong before." "Acceptance is awfully rare considering Equestria has a literal princess of friendship."
