For Daring Do:

...Oh? :o Tell me more about him, please! :ticking: *Sits down* Story time! Story time! Story time!

Daring Do: *laughs* I don't want to go into to much depth. We'd be here all day. I can share a little, starting with a picture. Icon_Daring_Do_Happy.png.87c6da573838894f67875b15b880bc58.png *fishes a photo out of her shirt pocket*

Daring Do: That's my immediately family, back when they were in university. From left to right is my uncle Gallant True, my mom, Gilded Rune, and my dad, Precious Mettle, or just "Mettle". Mom was the only one that could get away with calling him Precious. Icon_Daring_Do_Unconcerned.png.3aee46a3a30cdf1b4392a4a51fa28c47.png *giggles* Dad was a bit more of a rogue than I ended up being. Uncle Ad - er, uh, that's what I call Gallant True - says I got my brain from my mom, and my heart from my dad. Icon_Daring_Do_Sass.png.6619f38b8f92a3bfd5cb6f68a6ca1838.png He was an energetic goof, but loved life and adventuring from his hooves to his wingtips...

 Me and Uncle Ad miss him and mom a lot... Icon_Daring_Do_Uhh.png.489b53a927a40d421cd1d0dd7cdda149.png

For Caballeron:

Have you tried wearing one of those hats with a netted crown? Lets in a lot more air.
Though I don't blame you. Your hairdo looks great! Maybe you'll share your secret? :mlp_grin:

Dr. Caballeron: *runs a hoof through his mane* Muchas gracias, compadre. Icon_Caballeron_Confident.png.807c604aa522d77ef582b68190b9307d.png No, I do not mind sharing. The wave es natural. I just regularly treat it with coconut oil overnight to keep it healthy. Sometimes for 24 hours if I have no plans to leave the house. Icon_Caballeron_Suave.png.5fe80f8ce5c6d08ffd4225b27c5af96b.png

For Ahui:
It looks great on you! Though, the upper beak should probably be a little longer so that it drapes over your forehead.
Does wearing that get uncomfortable?

Ahuizotl: *chuckles* That would be a very long beaked bird. Icon_Ahuizotl_Orly.png.db99ca590722a039908f35fffc395cba.png But actually no, it es not uncomfortable. It was originally designed for pony warriors to wear, and I have heard plenty of them mention how heavy it es. But on someone my size, it es nothing. Icon_Ahuizotl_Stating.png.582396118c699728244018f30f4c1d16.png

Ahuizotl, i mean no offense, but, there are stories in our world of your kind using their tails to drag people, or ponies in this case, into lakes to drown them and steal their eyes. Are they true? :sunny:

So, AK Yearling's books about Daring Do have been doing pretty good in sales.
Any chance AK is going to publish the unreleased chapters some day? I bet there are chapters left on the cutting room floor. :squee:

Ahui, I know it's not part of your culture, but do the names Ra, Osiris, or Anubis sound familiar to you?

"Ahuizotl, where did your zotlfriend get her festive holiday attire?" :raritysillyhat:

Ahuizotl: She said it was from some... shop for photos? I feel there must have been something lost in the language barrier... Icon_Ahuizotl_Thinking.png.51d48be488c0ad35f109cbe218599c5f.png

Ahuizotl: *cringes a bit* Well, I do not know where the stealing of EYES came from, and I cannot speak for others of my kind because I have never met another, but I have dragged my enemies underwater before. But that's just pragmatic. I can swim very well and hold my breath for a very long time, so it gives me an edge. Icon_Ahuizotl_Annoyed.png.f54952b284c94336a7bfc1b5b8b95e40.png

Daring Do: And yet, I'm still here. Icon_Daring_Do_Sass.png.6619f38b8f92a3bfd5cb6f68a6ca1838.png

[Yeah, the eating of eyes and fingernails (hooves?) isn't a thing for our Ahuizotl. At least in my writing. It just doesn't fit within MLP. Kind of like how the Wendigos in MLP didn't have the cannibalism theme they do irl.]

Daring Do: *chuckles* You can call me Daring. Everyone in this thread already knows. Hmmm... Icon_Daring_Do_Thinking.png.fb2c60412f3d2ddf73238a68517e166f.png That's not a bad idea. There are a lot of stories I left out because there just wasn't anything thrilling to share. They led to dead ends or went so smoothly that there was no conflict to keep a reader invested. But they might be good material for a supplemental source! Icon_Daring_Do_Excited.png.01ff35aeec57207dd96a172c067e0f4d.png

Ahuizotl: They do. I do not know them personally like I do Quetzalcoatl. But the Guardian Spirits meet on occasion, and the Sphinx has told me about them. Icon_Ahuizotl_Surprised.png.aea252db8f0b7f054bbe43a2f7376034.png

"What do you do when you are sad, Daring Do?"

Daring Do: I realize it’s not the most healthy thing, but usually what I end up doing is just putting the feelings in a box to deal with later... Icon_Daring_Do_Bad_Idea.png.ad5adbce46d0d2fb3adf320fb66440b7.png

To Daring Do: If you had the time would you write about other things besides your adventures?

To Ahuizotl: Is the little cat you pet all the time your favorite pet?

To Caballaron: What were you planning on doing with your retirement funds if you had been able to sell the large golden ring to Ahuizotl?

Also, to DD... Are you afraid a third party publisher might try to turn your novels into dumbed-down children's books some day?

Daring Do: Hmm, possibly. I did a lot of writing in university of course, and I was always good at it, but it was a means to an end. Assignments to earn my degree. It only became fun when it became about my real calling: Adventuring! Icon_Daring_Do_Laugh.png.576a2992b7a1d14473bb26b850103b65.png

Ahuizotl: I think you might have a "typo" there, ese. Try gnawed neck. *flashes neck scars again for a better look* There es not very much to tell though... es thes alcohol? *sniffs sake* *crinkles nose* Icon_Ahuizotl_Thinking_2.png.6c959e8e123014db3fe284c963c1b4b8.png I usually drink pulque, but I will take anything at the moment. *downs it* *bites back the burn* *coughs* Not bad... Anyway, it es as I said before. I was a teenager, not yet a Guardian Spirit, patrolling around with other not-quite-stallions, pretending to be warriors. We passed by some of the village mares getting water from a river, said hola and kept walking. We did not get even a minute away when we heard them screaming. We ran back and... ugh... Icon_Ahuizotl_Eyes_Narrowed.png.4faba073d6437878ec1db4af7bfe129e.png "Cipactli" was chasing down one of the mares. I was not full grown, but I was still much bigger than any pony, so I ran headlong into the coward. We struggled a bit before I got my legs under it and kicked it back into the river. I was a bit dazed, and there was a lot of screaming, but I heard my name in there, so I turned to look. That was a mistake. Cipactli was still there. It lunged out of the water, bit down where my neck meets my shoulder, and pulled me in. The rest es a big blur of water, blood, screaming, and Etzli throwing me a spear, but as you can see... I am still here. Icon_Ahuizotl_Stating.png.582396118c699728244018f30f4c1d16.png

Daring Do: Sorry about that. ShadO's a nice lady, but she occasionally has the attention span of a goldfish. That's why it's better to do one question at a time, just it case she spaces out.

*Sneaks in and gives the trio an early Hearts Warming present* It's sunglasses. Since you're always doing outdoors things, I figured it would help. :rarityhat: Daring, Doctor, you two can trade if I got your personal style wrong. But Ahui, yours was custom ordered to fit only you, so you're kinda stuck with it. :mlp_blink:

Since I've got your attention...
Dr. C, doing anything special for your henchponies this year? Come on, you may be tough on them, but I know you care. :ticking:
Daring, how often do you go through archaeology gear?
Ahui... Ever step on a pony or smaller creature by accident? :twismile:
