Private The Friendship Express RP


Recommended Posts

Accent's eyes lit up along with the lights. Something must have happened, because bits started to pour out of the bottom. A bunch of them too.

 

"I think I got the jackpot on my first try!", she called out to Moonbeam, Harmonic, and Star Song. "Because there's about 500 bits flowing out!"

 

 

"So that means, the less slots I take, the more I win. Okay then," she said cheerfully. She approached the table.

 

"I want six please," she said, telling the mare working at the table.

 

"Six slots?" asked the mare.

 

"No, I just want the number six."

 

"Okay..." said the mare, with an air of uncertainty. In her innocent naivety, Moonbeam chose only one number.

 

 

"Okay, I'll explain.

 

In Keno, you pick numbers between 1 and 80, you can pick a maximum of 10 numbers. Each number is a "Keno spot" so however many numbers you pick is how many slots you have. 

 

Then, twenty numbers are drawn randomly, if you have the numbers that are picked, you win. However, the less numbers you have picked, the more it pays out. It's kind of like a lottery. " Harmonic says.

 

Star happily skipped over to Accent. "You are one lucky pony." She said, clapping her hooves together and chuckling at the bits that had all poured out of the machine. "Have you ever done this before ?" She asked, looking at the machine. "Is there a trick to it ?"

Accent looked over to Star Song, picking up a few bits that were pouring out of the machine. "I don't know! I just put in 5 bits, and then, I got 3 7's in a row! I've heard of these before, but I never got to play them before, since I wasn't old enough... But, this is just radical! This can buy me a set of quints AND a new marimba!"

"Uum...n-nothing that someone such as yourself would find interesting. I uh, um, I read m-mainly. Mythology and history for the most part. The Mare in the moon was particularly interesting to me." 'Dusk, you're boring. Admit it. You're boring her and you're boring in general'. He furrowed his brow as the thought flowed through his mind. "Do you uh...what do you do? For fun? I mean. Apart from roller blading...and stuff." 'Nothing to say Dusk, don't say anything, stop trying to make conversation that isn't there.'

Hop decided to walk around the train a bit before going back to her room and found a few interesting places like the spa, a theater of some sort and a few other things. She strated down a new train car and spotted two ponies talking to each other. One seemed very out of it and the other annoyed almost. She found this interesting and pulled out a pad and pencil, and began to jot down notes from what she observed from the nearby corner.

Fiera pondered for a second. "Well, I like to do acrobatics. As long as they are dangerous that is. Not exactly circus stuff. More like graceful jumping while alligators hunger below" she explained specifically. Out of the corner of her eye, Fiera noticed a mare scribbling down things on a note pad in the corner. "What exactly are you doing?" Fiera asked the mare from across the hallway.

(OOC: I should have used Flame. Him and Fiera would have gotten along wonderfully.)

 

Accent looked over to Star Song, picking up a few bits that were pouring out of the machine. "I don't know! I just put in 5 bits, and then, I got 3 7's in a row! I've heard of these before, but I never got to play them before, since I wasn't old enough... But, this is just radical! This can buy me a set of quints AND a new marimba!"

 

Star smiled. "Congratulations." She said, her wing's fluttering slightly.

She glanced up at the clock and her smile faded slightly. "Darn. I was supposed to call my roommate half an hour ago. Could you do me a favor and let the other's know that I have run back to my room ?" She asked, taking a few steps towards the entrance to the next carriage.

 

(OOC: I am just gonna get Star out to chat with some other ponies...as I said a few posts ago it may be a good idea.)

Hop looked up from her pad towards the mare. She simply smiled and wrote down a few things before answering. "Well, im glad you asked..." Hop began as she picked up her stuff and walked up to the mare. "I was just studying you two." *wow that sounded better in my head. Creepy.* "what i meant is that im seeing how ponies act around each other in close spaces. See if moods change over time."

@@Marathon@,

 

 

Dusk had backed away a few steps as the new mare approached. He didn't know what to say, so he simply kicked his hoof lightly against the ground and looked down. "umm...h-hi th-there..." He knew his nerves where soon going to take over, he had already bored one mare, but at least he was comfy speaking to her.

@Marathon,

 

Jabbermouth, seemingly appearing from nowhere, threw his hoof around the neck of the dark blue pony. Leaning in, he whispered, "If you want that fine lady there, you just gotta be brave. Aggressive, even!" He removed his hoof from the pony and slicked back his hair. "Ladies, I hate to interrupt, but I heard you discussing the interactions between ponies in confined spaces. If one of you would like, I can give you a unus ex uno study environment back in my suite." He tiled his head slightly back to the shy blue stallion behind him and winked.

 

 

OOC: He's back in the game, ya'll. And sorry if this makes anypony uncomfortable, but I really couldn't think of another way to bring my boy in. Feel free to rip into him.

Hop was about to reply to the dark blue stallion but was interrupted by another colt. She felt the urge to slap the colt for what he said but stayed calm and collected instead. "Like i would want to study with you. You really think im just going waltz into your cabin just so you can play around with me? Ponies like you are just... Rude!" She nearly yelled at the colt, then regained her calm and collected self.

Fiera sighed and grabbed Dusk's hoof, dragging him away from the two other ponies. "We were taking a look around the train, and we would like to get back to it" she said as she dragged Dusk down the hallway. "And to your offer. I think I would rather study a rock, or a stick. Maybe some paper while I'm at it" she said sarcastically to the stallion.

@@Harmonic Revelations, @,

The mare at the Keno table got the list of numbers. "I...I can't believe it!"

 

"I won!" exclaimed Moonbeam, skipping around merrily. She was given her winnings, and then she trotted over to her friends. "Harmonic! Accent! Star! Check out what I won!" she exclaimed, struggling to hold all of the bits. "Wait, Accent, where did Star go?" she asked.

Accent turned to see Star leave, and to see Moonbeam won as well. "Hey, Moonbeam! You won as well? Awesome!", she said, grabbing a bag to stuff her bits into. "Oh, Star left back to her room. She said she needed to go call her roommate, since she forgot to once she got on the train."

Upon hearing her comment about studying papers, Hop turned to the mare with a smile. "You can look over the stuff i wrote down if you want. I always like feed back." She said obviously not cathching the mares Sarcasm. Hop then smiled at the colt who name she has yet to get. Edited by Marathon

"Oh, okay," said Moonbeam. "You won too? That's great! I'm going to go stash these bits into my room and then go schmooze with some other ponies in the lounge. Do you want to come too? Afterall, you know what they say..." she said before rocking back and forth and singing.

 

"You got to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em, know when to walk away..."

@,@@Marathon, @@Kolth,  

 

Dusk whelped as he jumped when the other stallion appeared and spoke to him. He stammered about a little, trying to formulate some words to reply with, before he was pulled away by Fiera. He was pulled a few feet away before he pulled his hoof out of her grip and standing there, a somewhat confused look on his face as he looked back and forth between the group.

Star trotted out of the casino and in the direction of her room. *I hope Diamond isn't worried.* She thought, looking down at her hooves.

A couple seconds later she walked into something...er...somepony. "Oh I...sorry." Looking up she saw a pretty red pegsus. Er...she looked like a pegasus.

(AIYAAAA! STOP TOUCHING ME! But bonus points for calling Fiera pretty :3)

 

Fiera looked at the mare who bumped into her and smiled. "Its fine. It seems getting bumped into is a running thing going on for me at the moment" she said the last part rather irritably.

Jabbermouth forced a smile onto his face. "Oh, would you look at that. I said the wrong thing. Again." His eye twitched involuntarily. At this rate he would have a very unrelaxing vacation...he hated to do it, but he felt the need to apologize. He turned to the two mares he had addressed previously.

 

"My good ladies, I am terribly sorry to have offended you. I believe we got off on the wrong hoof." He extended his hoof delicately. "The name's Jabbermouth. People call me Jabber. It is my honor to make your acquaintance."

 

 

OOC: I'm slowly realizing that I am horrible at social-based RPs.  :lol:

Star blushed, she felt as if this pony may be slightly annoyed. "Oh...well, I uh...I better get going. I need to send a letter...to a friend. S-Sorry for bumping into you...again." She stammered, moving towards the next cart. *Ugh Star, be more careful.* She thought, mentally facehoofing.

Dusk was looking at the floor, trying to avoid any sudden conversation. His nerves where clearly showing. Suddenly he heard Fiera getting positively annoyed at something, but he didn't know what. Looking up, he saw a bright blue and striped mare had presumably walked into her. His head lifted a little, and his eyes lingered on her as she walked past. 'wow...' he mouthed silently, before shaking his head and looking back at Fiera. "Um...are we...are you okay?" he trailed off as he spoke, to the point of incoherence.

"You got to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em, know when to walk away..."

 

 

 

 

"Yeah, I'll probably do the same too. Don't want anyone trying to swindle a giant bag of bits out of me, that's for sure.", Accent said, as she slung the giant bag over her back, and began to walk alongside Moonbeam back to their rooms. The bits jingled inside the bag with each step.

@@Kolth, @, @,

((Actually, I find it nice for once to have a pony like Jabbermouth in this roleplay))

Fiera nodded. "Alright then" she said to the mare. Fiera turned to Jabbermouth and nodded. "I'm Fiera. And its a nice thing to see your name lives up to you" she said as she took his hoof in her own and shook it. Fiera noticed Dusk being a bit awkward just standing there saying close to nothing. "You okay?" she asked. Just noticing she didn't actually know his name yet. That or she forgot.

Hop turned to face the colt again. *Strange. Why did he completely change his tactic?* she thought to herself as she reached out and shook his hoof. "Im glad you fixed your approach. I like it more then going straight for the package." she said with a hint of a smile. She then turned to the Dark blue Colt. "Im Little Hop, and you are?"

Exhaling a sigh of relief, Jabber released some of the tension in his shoulders. "Well, it is very nice to meet you, my lovely mare. I tried the coffee stand in the lounge when we boarded; the brew they make is really quite something. Why don't we all hop on over there? My treat!" Jabber thanked his lucky stars that a few minor back-alley deals in Canterlot had gone over well, for he now had the bits to waste spend on his fellow passengers.

 

[OOC: If we already are in the lounge or something, my bad.]
