Gala Music Playing

 

She paced around the dressing mirror for several minutes while another pony, a cosmetic and dresser specialist, tried to fix her mane and crown on her head.

 

Please Princess Lightning Bliss… if you just hold still for just one second…The light blue unicorn attempted to levitate the tiara on her head.

 

I can't I just CAN'T, Blissy snorted as her hooves clopped on the floor, this is my first time to officially be attending the Grand Galloping Gala as a royal and I'm a nervous wreck! How can I sit still when all I want to do is gallop, fly or teleport away!

 

Leave her be please… Night Lights, the black exotic pegasus guard walked in smiling to his anxious wife, I'll deal with the tiara. The Gala is already underway, I'll fix her crown, you go on ahead Mrs. Cyan Dress.

 

Thank you soldier Night Lights… she nodded to him and quickly trotted out, sighed with relief that she was finally out of there.

 

Sit down you… You're making yourself look a mess…He sat the white mare alicorn down and placed her crown on her head. You look beautiful, and you're gonna have a wonderful time. He frowned a bit as she sulked in the chair, hmm, is the tiera and neckless all you going to wear?

 

Don't even get me started Nights...It's bad enough I couldn't find a dress to go with me... So YES all I'm wearing is this stupid crown and stupid necklace... She pouted to him. And no I'm not going to have fun at this Gala… You're not gonna be with me during the events… Do you have to help stand guard around the palace?

 

As your guardian, you're only royal guard, it is my job and privilege to protect you… but as your husband, he placed his hoof on her shoulder, it's my pleasure to do so… I'm not a good dancer anyway. Dragons really don't dance on their feet, but with their wings. He saw her head lower and eyes drip a bit, and gently he lifted her chin up. No tears now, I want you to have fun, go and greet your subjects like Princess Celestia, Luna, Twilight and Cadence are, and have fun. You'll see, it will be a great night for you.

 

She sniffed but nodded reluctantly, and had him escort her out of the room and down the hall to the great open ball room. Princess Celestia and Luna were already at the top of the stairs greeting guests while Twilight was with her brother Shining Armor and Cadence. She sighed heavily at the sight, but entered the room, just after Night Lights pecked her a kiss and left out the castle in flight to continue his patrols. She entered the room, calmly walking up the stairs…feeling everyponies eyes were on her, as she stood next to Princess Luna and proceeded to help greet their guests.

Having recieved an royal invitation to the legendary grand galloping gala for the first time during his stay in Canterlot through the contacts of his colleagues in EQ Vogue magazine, he, editor-in-chief miss Photo Finish and other few of his friends from the office were on their way towards the majestic royal palace that was brightly illuminated against the beautiful nightsky with the company of numerous other ponies around them, all eager and ecstatic to witness the rulers of the equestria and as well the somewhat new princess Twilight Sparkle among with the ruler of Crystal Empire that was princess Cadance. However even those important ponies were not the main reason to attend, it was his dear old friend Lightning Bliss, now very recently coronated and ready to take on her royal duties as an alicorn of unity with the support of the other royalties. As he was pondering about meeting his old friend again, while checking that his formal casual suit was in tip top condition, his thought was cut short by one of his colleagues named Patty Stone suddenly beginning to rant at a nearby tan and yellow colored mare pegasus dressed in a black dress trotting next to her with an audible voice

 

YOU!? HOW DARE YOU SHOW YOUR SORRY SKINNY HIDE IN HERE, CLOUDY BLING!?

 

She gritted her teeth in rage of seeing an agent of the rival fashion magazine 'Elite Fashionista' merely looked at her with a venomous smile and waved her front hoof distastefully at her

 

Oh, Patty Stone! Always so bitter how much better I am at getting exclusive deals with the hip of the top models of equestria before you, and how I made you look like an idiot during the last winter's fashion show in Las Pegasus by stealing your article about the fashion debacle of the Purple Gaze! Hopefully you don't try too hard this night either, since I'm having a rather nice dinner with the famous saddle arabian star Midnight Rose this evening and I Cloudy Bing, am gonna have her shine in the cover of our 'Elite Fashionista' Magazine next week!

 

With a smug grin and a chuckle, the arrogant pegasus mare trotted off from them towards the entrance of the palace gates with her minions, while the blonde brown unicorn mare Patty Stone was just about to blow a fuse in the middle of the crown, before being interrupted by her employer miss Photo Finish, who shook her head unapprovingly at her, while staring at intently behind her huge trademark glasses she always wears before turning her attention towards the road ahead

 

Nein! We're here to attend to ze gala and have fun! We already have made a lucrative contract made with the famous Rising Star from ze crystal empire, and what ever zat Cloudy Bling might be offering to ze Midnight Rose. I can do it better! You all have fun, but if possible, be on the lookout for any celebrities that might pop in during the evening! Last time I heard from ze news: The famous actress Emerald Shine will be attending to ze gala and it's imperative that we'll take as many picture of her and ask if she'd like to model for the EQ Vogue magazine! Has everypony understood my directives?

 

With an audible 'Yes' from all the ponies with the miss Photo Finish, the entourage had finally stepped through the main gates of the Royal Palace and now found themselves standing in the middle of a grand ball room with all the royalties standing proudly in line at the top of the stairs and greeting all the arrived guests individually with a royal grace. However all the other royalties seemed to meld against the background as he immediately noticed no other than princess Lightning Bliss herself standing proudly next to the princess of the night and couldn't help but smile seeing her again after so many months. As he and the entourage lead by Photo Finish were up to next to climb up the stairs and meet the rulers of the equestria, he gave the both sun and moon princess a deep and respectful bow to them, before walking in front of princess Lightning Bliss and smiled happily at the sight of her, while giving the same deep bow in front of her as he gave to Luna and Celestia

 

Miss Lightning Bliss... It fills my heart to see you again. It has been such a long time since we saw each other the last time.

@@Polaris,

 

The night was boring and dull, yet still hinted with a bit of butterlies in her stomach as she stood there next to Luna, greeting the ponies as they entered the gala. Music was playing crisply in the background, but she couldn't get into the majestic mood of it all... Her stomach growled from hunger, and her hooves were killing her standing there that long. She wanted to ask for permission to leave but felt doing so would be offensive, especially her first time being a royal at the Gala. Then out of the blue she spotted a familiar face. With Photo Finish's entrouge escorting behind her, stuck out a brown face with a creamy muzzle, and dark tundra green eyes.

 

SharpPolly_zps23dea1df.png

 

She watched Polaris climb the stairs with his entrouge in toe, her heart racing with wanting to see her old friend, she felt like she'd not seen in months. Her tail reacted in accord, swinging from side to side at the sight of him in his handsome custom made suite with white cuffs, his blue beard groomed to perfection while his mane stuck out like a famous actor. As he bowed, all seemed to fade away of her nervousness and delight, but rather then bow back she more then wanted to just hug him tight, tell him how long its been, and to go treat them both to a drink...but she watched Celestia and Luna dart an eye at her as all the other ponies waited to greet her as tradition. She sighed, and plastered her smile on her face.

 

Polaris, it's been so long my old friend, she nodded her horn back to his, rising it back up and giving him a friendly, familiar playful grin in her eyes that told him "GOD I'VE MISSED YOU!", I hope to speak with you tonight after a few more greetings. She finished as professionally as possible.

He nodded deeply and respectfully at her with a warm gentle smile before speaking out again.

 

Absolutely! I'm looking forward to catch up with you and your husband Night Lights after you two are done with your royal duties. In the meantime I shall go mingling around with the guests and maybe have to do some field work by being on a lookout whenever some of those famous mare models would appear and try to give them an interview or accompany miss Photo around the palace and take notes.

 

He felt a slight bump to his side and turned his head to see his boss Photo Finish standing next to him and motioned her head towards the dining area below with a small hint of excitement that he swore he just barely saw under her trademark purple glasses. He nodded back to his editor-in-chief with the last words said he nodded to princess Bliss again, before decending down the stairs to the ground level and the entourage began their way towards the dining hall where they could gather to plan their evening's strategy, enjoy fine exotic delicacies with a glass of finest sparkling white wine and began their quest of mingling with the important ponies around the palace.

(First time sorry if I'm not very good [Ha-Ha]) (IGNORE THIS)

 

As the mare dashes to Ponyville, Rarity is commuting to a near by cake shop to buy a dessert for Spike-Wikey's Birthday..

 

Hello Cake Bearers! I come here to get a scrumptious green cake for a cute little Dragon I know!

Oh it's Spike's birthday, huh? What a dear he is right?

I say he is if I do say so myself. Luckily for you, Rarity, we have the perfect cake for this occasion!

 

They hand Rarity the cake that proclaims, "Happy Birthday!" and she exclaims...

 

Oh you people are such dearies to give me such a ...Dramatic Pause... wonderful cake!

 

Rarity proceeds to pay and walk outside when suddenly she runs into Spike...

 

Why hello there Rarity! Uhh... what-cha' got there?

...Rarity hides the cake...

Oh nothing, Spikey, just a...uhh... a gem for you!

 

Rarity then proceeds to pull an Emerald out of her pocket and hands it to Spike

 

Wow Rarity! This looks delicious, THANKS!!

...Spike Walks Away and Rarity mumbles softly...

Woah! That was a close one! I better get this to my freezer downstairs before he finds out.

 

Rarity then walks home saying "HI" or "HELLO" to many ponies and places it in a hidden freezer in her basement. She walks outside and suddenly a strange mare runs into town

(First time roleplaying on a forum, hope I do well)

Dark Star stood at the entrance to the gala, looking around with caution as ponies passed him without really taking notice of the rather nervous stallion. 

 

About a week ago he found a ticket on the very street in front of the place he called home and decided to put it to good use. Not really understanding how a pony just happened to lose his ticket there he remained on guard expecting a trap of some sort. But so far there was no trouble in sight.

Dark Star still didn't want to enter, he didn't exactly know the reason. Maybe because of the huge groups and he worried about having to socialize.  Or maybe the lack of having a partner, after all what is the point of going to a gala without a partner or friend? 

Then again there was also a 2nd problem that Dark Star was sure of, The Princesses. Reminded by his past actions he knew he couldn't just show up and be greeted inside. 

 

Over the time he was thinking a guard clearly took notice of the mysterious pony and walked up to him. 

 

"Excuse me, Sir. Is there a problem?" He said. 

 

''No, no, not at all. I am just...waiting for my date! She is taking forever to get here and I fear something might have happened to her." Dark Star responded. 

 

''Alright, is there anything you need help with? 

 

"Thank you, but you do not. I need some silence to collect my thoughts." The stallion said slowly trotting away. 

"Have a nice night!"

 

Dark Star entered the castle showing the ticket avoiding the gaze of the princesses and imminently made his way to the gardens hoping to find some peace.

@@Polaris,

 

What felt like an eternity of greeting and waving and looking pretty amongst the visiting gala ponies, she finally had her fill of it and turned to Princess Luna, "Your Highness?" She asked shyly.

 

"Lightning Bliss, you can call me Luna," she smiled to her, "what troubles thee?"

 

"Oh...I'm not troubled High- erm I mean Luna, I just...It's been awhile now...and...I've think I gretted plenty of our guests as it is. Forgive me if I'm being rude," she pawed the ground looking at the floor as she spoke, "it's just my good friend Polaris is here, and I'll be expecting more of my friends to show up as well. I was hoping...if it is allowed... I could um.."

 

Luna giggled at her frustraion and obvious concerns, it was clear the little white alicorn was bored and had a thirst for entertaintment, "Of course you may go Bliss. Go mingle with thy friends, just be sure to come back and visit with some of the famed and fortune as well. Many have been anxious to meet you, the Hidden Princess, as they call thee lately." She smiled to her and tapped her horn to Bliss's in encouragement.

 

"Thank you Luna!" She hugged her suddenly in her enthusiasm. Luna's expression was one of shock, but then quickly turned to a smile and hugged her back. "I promise to be back soon!" She leg go of Luna and cantered into the main ball room where Polaris and his party headed to. Almost immediatly she was swarmed with eagered party guests wanting to chat with her, shake hooves with her and admire her wardrobe. "Um...sorry yes...Um... Oh hi nice to meet you...Yes welcome to the Gala, um...Sorry please excuse me, I'm looking for my friend, Polaris? Works with Photo Finish?" Then she spotted him near the buffet and waved her hoof to him pleadingly.

   Winter Raven very cautiously enters, it wasn't that he felt unsafe or nervous about being here but...its going to be quite the party and he secretly hopes that he can handle things when they really get into gear. His wings are tucked close to his body, and though he tries to shake his mane back a bit it stubbornly settles in the place it always does. 

   Winter hopes that no one will find it rude that his mane looks to cover half of his face. It didn't prevent him from seeing (for the most part) but some may consider it an insult, a way to snub them without making a specific action. The upper crust of Canterlot have a tendency to look for ways to be offended; probably because they were bored.

 

   His large golden eyes search the room, so many ponies here, so many he knew. Some through his grandmother, some as 'clients' of his own. It was because of one of those that he has helped that he was here at all. Not just because she got him the ticket but if he hadn't shown up it would hurt her feelings and with her still trying to readjust after her ordeal how could he not come?
  He may not have to stay long...or who knows maybe he will have some fun? Maybe...

 

  As a couple of ponies come up to him Winter finds himself rather crowded, fairly quickly and after saying his hellos he excuses himself mentioning that he still needs to greet the princesses and did not want to be rude. Though he takes the first chance he can to slip out to the garden.

  The young stallion snorts with a bit of frustration. "Or...maybe not...."

Dark Star took a look around, and wandered deeper into the gardens, not really being noticed by any of the other guests. The place was calm. 

 

After a short walk he stopped by a small fake pond. Slowly looking at his reflection the stallion wandered off into his thoughts. 

Dark Star slowly took out a piece of paper. On it was written simply a name ''Flower Blossom" and a picture of a cutie mark to match with that.

 

"Time to do what I came here to do." Dark Star said to himself hiding the letter, slowly moving away from the pond. 

 

Quickly looking around to make sure nobody was looking Dark Star's horn lit up and he teleported to the nearest empty balcony. 

 

He quickly entered an upper floor above the ball room, it was packed with ponies that didn't seem to notice the stallion appearing out of nowhere and coming in threw the balcony door. 

 

Dark Star grabbed a glass of wine from the waiter giving out free drinks and asked:

 

"Excuse me good sir, have you seen a certain mare with a pink blossoming flower cutie mark?"

 

"Ah, yes. I actually saw a pony like that not long ago, she walked by and was making her way towards the dancing floor downstairs," the waiter responded.

 

"Thank you, but may I ask how you know she was making her way to the dance floor?"

 

He coughed "Well... she was trying to persuade me to go and be her dance partner for the next song, I sadly have a job to do and Celestia wouldn't like me slaking off. "

 

"Understandable, well I better catch her before she wanders off. Thank you for the information. Goodbye, have a nice night." Dark Star said wandering off, continuing to try and find his way downstairs, this time being sure to find what he was looking for there. 

 

As he walked down he felt a slight chill, one of his most hated songs started playing, a track composed by Ponivaldi, his most hated composer of all time.

 

After making his way unto the ball room Dark Star came up to a lonely mare up in the corner, she was yellow with white hair and a long simple tail and mane, and was exactly who he was looking for.    

 

"Hello Miss, could I invite you to a dance?" He said as the music switched to one of his more liked tunes ''Bethooven - Fur Elise".

 

The rather damped mares eyes light up. 

 

"Why, I would be honored. " She answered rather gracefully but filled with joy, coming up closer to the stallion and offering her hoof, Dark Star responded and they trotted off to the dance floor.

Jack of all trades known as Jack Trades had her overall on, having getting past the royal gaurds, because her attire was not correct for the event. She had been carrying her bags filled with brushes,paints and her favorite empty canvas for the royalty painting, for princess twilight, cadance, celestia, Shining armor, luna and all those who were important. She had her ticket which she had recently recieved to paint a live painting of the gala. The problem was that she had to meet them, but with her clothes she was given a wide step from everyone. A few whispered that she was the engineer of disaster, the builder, the dirt and finally bob the builder.

Ah I'm so happy to see everyone dissing the artist, Jack said, she sadly slinked her way to the fountain where the nicely dressed ponies were. She was told to wait at the fountain so the princesses could get their pictures painted. Jack shouted out "royal painter here!" She looked around feeling so out of dress code. Her overalls were the only thing keeping her beautiful long hair clean and her short cut tail.

Jack shouted again, "I'm sorry, can anyone help me? I'm looking... " the ponies walked past her still with the gap of fearfully messing their dresses. "I think I need a map"

She hurried her way to the dance floor skidding on the floor and landing at the feet of the stairs. She felt so ashamed of looking like a hoodlum whom crashed a party. She was known as a star painter, especially when it came to painting dolls. Breathing out of breath, "I-- I'm here... "

@@Cupid,

 

(OOC My OC is in the ballroom, trying to have some personal company with my friend Polaris but since I'm a low ranked alicorn it's attracting attention and the other ponies attending want to chat with me, quite frustrating)

 

She couldn't stand the fact the group of fancy ponies, mostly unicorn, were pushing so eagerly to talk to her. About where she lived, what she did, what she contributed in this year's society etc etc. All Bliss wanted to do though was stand next to Polaris and have a drink. Finally in a ditch of frustration, she teleported out of the group and landed next to Polaris who was having a conversation with Photo Finish.

 

@@Lightning Bliss,

"Ahem," she called on Polaris, "sorry it took me so long to see you Polly!" She hugged him from behind eagerly, ignoring the fact other ponies where whispering about her socaliztion with him and his party. "It's nice to finally see a familiar face here. Oh and good evening Ms Finish." She shook hooves with the mare, "I hope you and your party are enjoying themselves? Polaris was just mentiong to me how you and your team like to take pictures of the latest ponies around."

@@Lightning Bliss,

 

Just as he was about to open his mouth to warmly greet his old friend and a current princess Lightning Bliss, he was cut off by his boss miss Photo Finish who returned to the alicorn's hoofshake stongly and bowed her head down in before the marshmellow alicorn, before raising her head up quickly again with a ravenous look on her eyes that could be seen even through her thick designer glasses. She was about to make his friend Blissy as her first target of the night.

 

Ze princess Lightning Bliss! It is such an honor to meet you in person, and I, Photo Finish must say that you simply ADORING in that royal dress tonight your highness! I simply must have a photo of you in my article of this year's galloping gala's celebrities! Not having to wait for a second, few of her henchponies of miss Photo appeard from the crowd around them and began to take multiple pictures of the newest member of the royal family of equestria from several angles, that caused her to look all around her in slight panic of being attacked by so many photographers and before she could protest, they disappeared back in to the crowds in a flick of an eye, leaving her standing with miss Photo Finish and her friend Polaris, who could only smile at her apologetically as his employer advanced towards his friend with that familiar look on her face when she was about to make a deal with somepony.

 

Now that's out of ze way, I'd like to ask if you're interested of making an exclusive deal with ze EQ Vogue magazine to do few shootouts for the next issue, so that everypony around ze equestria could see the grace and ze magics of their newest alicorn princess? If you should agree, we'd be more zhen happy to compensate your trouble generously by sending bits to a charity of your choice. She then raised her hoof and the familiar brown unicorn rolled his eyes a bit, before drawing out his notebook and a pen, before Photo Finish continued. So what do you say, your highness Lightning Bliss? Would you be interested in making a deal with ze Vogue exclusive photoshoot and a brief interview about your life as a princess? She looked at the alicorn with high hopes as she waited for her to respond.

@@Polaris,

 

"Oh my..." Bliss blushed helplessly and her eyes boggled from all the flashing lights of the cameras. "Wait what?" She asked just as Finish explained about the deal to add her in her article magizine for newest Princess. The earth pony was so eagered and hopefull looking despite her eyes were hidden by big sunglasses. She looked to Polaris for a way out of this...but here merely saw his apologetic smile followed by the look of 'it's ok Bliss, you don't have to accept it.'

 

But at the mention that Photo Finish would dontate her payments to charities of her choice made it sound worth while. The savings could go to Mr. and Mrs Cake, Rarity's Dress shop, Sweet apple acers! She told her herself, thinking about the small Mom & Pop shops of her favorite town Ponyville, but...my face will be all over the magizines of Equestria... my profile to be kept on the down low so I can have a realtively normal life would be ruined! She sighed a second, conflicted by the choices... Help to contribute to the small mom and pop stores of Ponyville, or have her privacy ruined by the fame of Photo Finish's magizine...But it would help Polaris in his job too...it would help Mrs. Finish... I would hate to let them both down and...

 

"GAH!" She snorted a second, starling Mrs Finish, "oh um... I'm so sorry it's just... This is a big decision and... I'm not sure I'm ready just yet to be seen that much by the public... Oh i'd have to discuss this with my husband and-" She shut her mouth then, realizing she just openly admitted she was a married alicorn.

As soon as the two ponies reached the center of the ball room they begun to dance, dancing in a spiral. 

After a short time it was clear that the yellow mare had a lot of things going threw her mind, but what stuck out was her worries. 

 

Dark Star knew what he was doing, making sure the dance felt special to the mare he just met. After dancing for around 10 minutes without speaking a word the yellow mare spoke. 

 

"So, what is your name? We never properly introduced ourselves." She said rather shyly. 

 

"How about you go first?"Dark Star responded.

 

"My name is Flower Blossom, I work as a botanist here in Canterlot... your turn."

 

The stallion slowly increased the tempo of the dance as the song changed. And then decided to answer.

 

"My name is Dark Star. I am the ex-captain of the Lunar Watch and I am here to help you Mrs. Blossom. I know your last close to you family member is being held hostage by someone and you are being forced to do something you don't want to tonight, and it can claim your life. I am here to help you, and I would like to ask for your co-operation. If you listen to me then nobody else will ever have to know what happened here." He finished catching his breath. 

 

The mares eyes grew with confusion and shock. She pulled away from the stallion, dropping her head and hardly walking away. 

Dark Star slowly followed her since it was clear she was not trying to get away. 

 

"I don't work for any authorities. I do these things either of my own amusement of I just feel like something is too wrong to be left unnoticed. I got a ticket to the gala by finding it on the street while I was just investigating your case, knowing you would be here that made a really good coincidence. "

 

Flower Blossom decided to stop, she didn't know what to do and tears started to swell up in her eyes. 

 

"They took my little brother, and are making me do terrible things. I need to sacrifice my safety so they will let him go."  She turned towards Dark Star and stared deep into his eyes. "Please help my brother. There is nothing you can do to help me anymore. If I don't do it then they might dispose of him. I don't know where he is or who the evil ponies are."

 

"What are they making you do?"

 

"I have to... wait, how do we know somebody might be overhearing or watching this?"

 

"You see, the person who ''hired'' you doesn't do those kinds of things, they are not too fond of spies. They are watching you personally, and I managed to notice who was the only pony staring at us for the past minute. And it is not the curious kind of interested, I can see that in his eye. All I know is that It sent to get your brother and get rid of him already. What you are about to do is irrelevant. What I am to do will be. Oh and he is an It because It is a changeling. I advise you to go to the entrance of the party, I will try and deliver your brother there. "

 

Dark Star quickly looked up and noticed that his target clearly knew what was going on, with a swift teleport the stallion got on one of the overview balconies on the 2nd floor. Eyes deadlocked on the changeling that just morphed into somepony else. Chase begun. 

 

[i think I am overdoing this and clearly doesn't fit with everyone else at the Grand GG, hope I am not breaking any rules :P]

@,

 

(OOC Ya...this was kinda meant to be a fun time at the gala, mingle maybe have a few mishaps, but to have some kind of secret mission agenda? Kinda off topic lol, might try to tone it hehe.)

 

Night Lights mean while continued his patrols around the palace. Every now and then he'd get stopped by a group of stragglers that were joining the gala, but more to his annoyance, the ones that were mares...took great strides in having him stop to talk with them. He was frustrated enough as it was with being away from Lightning Bliss, knowing she was in a twirl previously about attending the gala in the first place. But to have a bunch of mares flirting with him and asking when he has time off his patrols to join them for a dance, was more then he could take.

 

"So you're a palace guard?" A light pink unicorn with golden errands spoke to him just as he tried to make his leave, "I always admired the guards of the palace. So heroic and fearless in the line of duty. Oh but I didn't get your name?"

 

"It's Night Lights ma'am" the shape shifting dragon quietly growled under his pony form, "if you excuse me."

 

"But hold on please Sir Night Lights!" She galloped in front of him, levitating her gown up so she didn't trip over it, "you are such a unique stallion! I've never met a black pegasus quite like yourself! Those long bat like wings, the dragon like tail...and oh those elegant ears..." she reached to stroke his sensetive ears, only for him to dodge her and flutter up into the air.

 

"I'm sorry ma'am, I think I hear my WIFE, calling me now, excuse me!" He darted into the air and head straight for the gala gates.

 

The mare stood there with her jaw open, one for the elegancy of his night flight...the other for the fact she embrassed herself in front of her friends for flirting with a married stallion. "Who...WHO is so lucky enough to marry a stallion like that?"

Star Catcher walked slowly, keeping her head tilted towards the ground, but making sure she wasn't bumping into anypony. There were others around her, but not many. All of them were dressed nicely, their manes done, diamonds and jewels practically flowing off of them. They all looked very nice, admittedly. And Star Catcher practically looked the same, except without all of the glitz. However, the main difference between her and the rest of the ponies around her, was that they were all excited to be there, and she wasn't.

 

She was practically forced to come to this 'Galloping Gala' by her older sister, Moon Beam, who was there because of her fianc Stained Steel. He was one of Luna's 'secret guards', and therefore was allowed to bring anypony he wanted to the gala.

 

Walking up to the large doors of the castle, Star Catcher flipped her snow white mane out of her face as she looked up. She was taken back by how gorgeous the castle really was. Except the fact that there were hundreds of ponies filling the place, it was quite pleasing to look at. Although, so were the ponies, dressed in their silks and fineries. Star Catcher was a bit different in the crowd, though.

 

((would describe the dress, but I'm not very good at stuff like that, so here))

Walking up to see Celestia and the new princess was slow and nerve wracking, causing her to be more anxious than she should have been. However, when she finally got to the top of the stairs, they were already talking to somepony, so Star Catcher decided to slip past and save herself the embarrassment of making a fool of herself. 

 

Finally in the main room, she looked around in awe, actually happy that she was here. She searched the room, trying to find her sister and Steel. After a few minutes of no luck, she decided that she might as well find somepony else to talk to. She looked over and saw a yellow mare, who looked like she had been crying. 

 

"Oh, poor pony. She looks so upset. I should go talk to her." Star Catcher thought, making her way to the pony. 

 

Soon, she was next to the mare. "Hey, are you okay? I saw you from over there, and I just wanted to know if everything was alright. I can't stand seeing ponies upset. Is there anything I can do to get you in a better mood?" Star asked, trying to sound as polite as possible.

Melody
 
Melody shuffled awkwardly in her gala dress as she entered the large Canterlot castle. She burst into the main hall. She saw all the ponies mingling and being greeted by Princess Celestia herself. She trotted up the stairs, trying not to trip over her dress. She made it to the top and bowed as she was greeted. She then trotted up to the stairs, searching for the ballroom. She finally made it. She loved everything. And the music. Oh, the music! It was amazing! She closed her eyes as she let the music fill her ears. she trotted loser to the stage, grinning widely. She listened for what seemed like forever, when finally the small clip on her ear fell off. She blushed as she let her horn glow it's stunning green. She lifted the clip and put it back on her ear. She began to shake awkwardly in her dress as she tried to feel comfortable. She was glad that Rarity had made the dress for her and all, but she was uncomfortable in them, and she wans't used to them.
"Hopefully I won't embarrass myself in the first ten minutes I'm here." She muttered to herself. She grinned a bit at her own little joke. She started to trot outside, so she could hopefully meet somepony.

   Winter can't decide if he is enjoying his quiet corner of the garden or not; yes quiet is fantastic but perhaps he should be dancing, or mingling at least. The stallion feels his ears warm up with blush, this whole social event thing always feels just beyond his grasp normally though this time he almost feels like he could be drowning.

   It was a beautiful night though, not too hot or cold perhaps if he just stayed out here the evening will be a lovely one. 

 

   Something still nagged at him as to why he was invited, she knew he didn't like big social occasions. Was she just acting on decorum? He hadn't even said hello yet but there would be such a wall of ponies around her. Maybe it was a way for him to meet new ponies that need his help?

   

   His golden eyes scanned the party, so many people were throwing everything into tonight. To some this night looks to be their everything. How could a party be so important? The words of his grandmother chime in his head and he sighs. It wasn't his place to question why if he wasn't willing to ask, best not make assumptions.

 

   He spots a waiter with a tray of fun looking drinks and deciding to live a little, or at least pretend to, he would try to follow the server who seemed to have a lot of practice moving between and among the guests. Winter Raven would be getting stopped up by the people moving about seeming to be oblivious to the pegasus trying to get by them.

Melody

(OOC: I forgot to mention: Melody has Synthesia. Ya know, where people can imagine names having colors and fonts, seeing the world in colors, etc. I know this from The first Secret Series book and the fact that my sister is Synthetic.)

 

Melody trotted into the outdoor garden. The sweet scent of flowers hit her nostrils, and she breathed in deeply. She noticed a blue Pegasus stallion trotting over to a waiter. She spotted some drinks on his tray and she trotted over herself.

"Hello." She said as she gave him a polite nod. She took a glass of one of the drinks, once again her horn glowed a bright green. She smiled slightly as she took a sip. A wave of tastes washed over her tounge. She smacked slightly. She imagined the taste as a bright burst of pink, orange, and yellow. She gave the waiter a polite nod, and she was about to walk off. but she felt herself wanting to talk to the stallion Pegasus, but was unsure of what to say.

"SO.. um.. Hello..?" She said awkwardly. Being social was not her strong suit. She would often just stay in her room, listening to music. "Pretty, um, crowded here-but it's nice.. right?" A small dorky grin spread over her face.

 Winter Raven finally manages to get his drink when the waiter stops for somepony else. An unfamiliar unicorn says her hello to him and Winter turns his full attention onto her, being a bit nervous himself he would give a small awkward smile in return. "Hello."

 He'd look around; "Yeah it's filling up quickly, and while it is all quite lovely, how nice it is depends on how much you like crowds...for me its only so-so to be honest. Personally I am not big into huge crowds though I'm not sure if that is a good thing to admit at a place like this...my name is Winter Raven. What is yours?"

 

  The stallion would try his drink, something about it seems to near startle him and seeing as the mare probably couldn't help but notice that he blushes, "Sorry...that must have looked a bit...anyhow..."

   A couple of the other guests would chuckle at how uncouth the young stallion is being but decide to move off out of 'politeness'.. You can tell Winter is seeing and hearing them but is doing his best to ignore the others and waiting for your answer.

@@Lightning Bliss,

 

She nodded understandingly at the princess Blissy, before she pulled out a contact card from her dress and handed it over to Bliss. But of course, your highness! Here iz my number whenever you're feeling like to call, but remember that my offer only stands for two weeks and after that I have to start doing ze article on Rising Star, so with my deep respects think quickly your highness. She waved her hoof on her side in a dramatic music effect. Now if you excuse me I, Photo Finish will now be off to mingle around ze palace to meet other ponies, so I hopefully see you around amidst ze others! Bowing respectfully at the princess, Photo Finish left the alicorn and Polaris standing together next to the serving table.

 

Now that was out of the way, he could finally sigh from relief and smile at his old friend before taking a small sip of wine from his crystal glass he took from one of the waiter unicorn's silver platters that went past him moments ago. My apologies, miss Bliss... My boss can be like that sometimes. Clears his throat. So... four months has it been already since we saw each other the last time? I've been so occupied with my job for these last months, that I've truly been unable to see you friends that often anymore like in the old days. Sighs as he begans to reminisce the past events. Those really were the days, huh miss Bliss? All the adventures and near death experiences we had, but for some reason I'm more happy with my current life at the moment, because let's just say that I've had enough of all that, and it's time for me to start living my life carefree from here on like I've always wanted to for my whole life.

 

He snatched a delicious cheese cake slice from the nearby cake stand and placed it on a plate and hovered it next to him, while smiling warmly and taking small bites from it with a silver spoon So how about you, my friend? How have you been? Do you miss all those adventures? Have you grown accustomed to being a new part of a royal family and their duties? Has it been hard to attend to the royal duties expected of a princess? Is my favourite dragon and your husband Night Lights doing alright?

@@Polaris,

 

"It's all been...great?" She smiled to him for a second and levitated herself a small plate with an ordurb brownie and vetables with it, "I don't know Polaris, sometimes I feel like our adventures were the only times I felt normal. Then again... It has been nice getting accustome to the life in the castle. But..." She took a bite of the brownie first before continuing, "honestly me and Nights don't stay here too often, only when duty calls and I need to be present for diplomatic meetings. Otherwise we try to live our life back in the cave over seeing Ponyville."

 

"Night Lights is doing fine though, he's having quite of bit of fun prancing around as a palace guard and as my personal body guard. But of course when he's not guarding he...doing other things?" She winked at him in a flirting way, "I'm sure he'd love to get the chance to talk with you! It really has been so long." She thought about Photo Finish's offer, and felt she really did need to give the pony a fair answer before the nigh was over, but doubts were swimming within her. "I know your Boss can be like that too Polaris, and sorry to change the subject so early...it's just..." She turned from him for a second to stare at her reflection in a nearby window. Her gryphon like makeup in bright pink...her golden crown and necklace...all emphansizing who she was even more... Trying to imagine all that on the cover of a magizine only made her look down on her hooves. "Me and...Night Lights have done our best to keep who we are on a low profile... I want to help you at your job, and provide charity to the mom and pop shops of Ponyville...but is it worth the chost of our privacy?" She pawed the ground and looked at the strong tribal unicorn. "What would you do in this kind of situation old friend?"

@@Lightning Bliss,

 

He smiled at her, before walking closer and placing his plate and glass to the table for a moment. What I'd do in this situation, Bliss? I'd probably question wheter it would be a good idea to risk my privacy for a simple photoshoot, but as you might already know that ponies around the equestria do already know you somewhat and it was no secret for everypony that you would be present here in the grand galloping gala this evening. He looked at her apologetically. News travels fast and your exploits have become known I'm afraid, and it wouldn't really matter at this point wheter you'd choose to or not to go to the photoshoot session next week with miss Photo, since ponies are going to identify you nonetheless wherever you might travel.

 

His smiled dropped down fro a bit, before gathering up and looked at her again more sympathetically. Look... You don't have to do this and if you'd like, I can try to persuade my boss to try to talk her next client into donating to the targets of your choice instead, so you don't have to become even more known than necessary by participating in the photo sessions.

 

His ears perked up as he heard the crowds around the ballroom starting to murmur audibly and turning their looks towards the entrance to the hall, where he and Blissy turned to look also to discoverd princess Twilight Sparkle entering in to the room with a face that could only be described as a look of stage fright, as she was almost immediately swarmed from all sides by eager and excited ponies to meet their new favourite princess after Celestia and Luna. He knew that he wasn't supposed to, but he couldn't help but to chuckle a bit at the purple alicorn's misfortune as he turned to look at the marshmellow alicorn standing next to him with a small grin on his face.

 

At least you're not as famous as princess Twilight herself, so I can tell you're pretty safe from the public eyes at the moment, miss Bliss. His horn began to glow with a blue aura as he lifted his glass of wine in front of him and took a sip, while watching the poor Twilight trying to get past the adoring fans of hers around her in the dining hall.

@@Polaris,

 

She couldn't help but laugh a little out loud at the sight of Twilight being bombarded with ponies, much like she was, but Polaris was right in what he said. Compared to her, Bliss had it easy in the public eye. Hardly any ponies unless family and friends, would personally see her and Nights on a regular bases. Their home being so hard to reach and all, and with the fact Nights was a dragon, it was intimidating for any spokespony, or magazine station to get a hold on them knowing she and he were private in general.

 

"Is it true she has her own castle now in Ponyville?" She asked Polaris, "I heard rumor but wasn't sure since I've been staying in Canterlot for quite some time."

 

She swallowed what was left of her brownie and levitated over a glass of sharp apple cider. "I wonder what that's like... to have your own castle...I even wonder if that means I one day will have one of my own?"

 

As she watched the purple alicorn mingle nervously with others, she couldn't help but admire the fact that Twilight was just like her in regards to facing the public eye. She obviously handled it better then Bliss...since she continues to hide herself beneth her hood and cape and goggles while out and about...A sort of strike of confidence whipped across her nose then, sighed, and turned back to Polaris. "You know what Polly? Let's do it... Let's find your boss and tell her I'd be happy to do it. You're right in saying that everypony pretty much knowns me now, but they know I like my privacy obviously...and if it will help you in your job and the small stores in Ponyville, then it's all worth it!"
