Open (This RP IS CLOSED) Welcome to the Grand Galloping Gala!

"Polaris sounds fun." He squees. "So he gets to meet all sorts of ponies." Obscure follows Bliss as she starts to walk back towards the castle. "Yes! Lets go meet Polaris and take you inside." He poofs next to her, receiving a few more looks from the ponies at the party as he does. 

 

As they re-enter the hall, the sound of classical music echoes the entire castle. He bends down to her ear. "It's a little bit odd, that mares have to be escorted around here. I'm guessing it's normal though." He whispers to her. "Wait, What if Polaris is going to be frightened of me? Since the last Draconequus here was slightly insane." He slows down slightly to hide behind her a bit. "I'm scared something might happen." He holds onto her to stop her from walking. "What if someone else here mistakes me for Discord, something bad will happen." Obscure hides underneath Bliss and curls into a ball, poking his head out just underneath hers. "I don't want any trouble. I just want to have friends." He curls up tighter.

 

(that took forever to write, and it isnt much either.)

@,

 

"Hey try not to worry," she comforted him, finding it more humours that a big powerful being like him could be scared enough to hide beneath her legs the way he was like a young colt, "my friend Polaris is as honorable as they come. He might be a little started at first mind you, it's not often we see other draconous beings around our parts. But I'm sure once he gets to know you, you both will get along great!" She gently stepped over him and lifted his head up. "Come on now stand up, can't be escorting a Princess around if your hiding on the floor now can we?"

 

She grinned and helped him up and encouraged him to keep walking through the palace. "It is kinda funny to have stallions escorting mares around. I guess its just a polite curtiousy and respect to us mares? Back in the olden days they used to do this all the time. Personally I don't mind it," she smiled to him eagerly, "It's nice to be escorted around once in awhile, it makes me feel special or needed. I'm sure it makes you feel the same way? I mean look at it this way, you're befriending an alicorn and you're already escorting her around! Coolies to you right?"

Obscure slowly gets up, but stands behind Bliss. "He'll be fine with me then." He takes a deep breath, and walks behind her. "It does make me feel a bit special. It isn't everyday that you get to talk and walk with a princess." He continues following behind her, making sure not to bump into any pony. "Do you know where he is? Because we've been walking around for a few minutes, and we haven't seen him yet."

 

They continue to walk around the great party hall, trying to find Bliss' friend. "Maybe he's using the toilet." Obscure says randomly. "He could be upstairs, if there is an upstairs." After a few more minutes of searching with no luck, Obscure comes up with an idea. "If I put you on my shoulders you could probably spot him out of the crowd and we could speak to him." He says, remembering just afterwards she has wings. "Or I guess you could just fly above everyone actually, it would make more sense than going on my shoulders, though I prefer that idea more." He stands next to Bliss, waiting for her to make a decision on how to find Polaris.

@,

 

"Well... personally," her ears went down in a guilty look, "I my hooves are starting to ach from all the walking. I'm sure we'll find my friend Polaris later, he's just busy mingling with poltential revenue for his magazine I'm sure. Why not we go to the ball room and check out the scenery? I'm sure we could find some more interesting ponies to talk to. That or get something else to eat that you didn't create yourself!" She giggled a bit and head down a small flight of stairs towards the ball room.

 

She could already spot a few of the other Princesses, still meeting and greeting happily to stragglers still showing up for the party. She made a hasty retreat into the ball room area, not wanted to get caught by Celestia and be asked to continue on with the greeting more. "Grr I tell you what though Obscure, just between friends?" She asked innocently, "It's not all it's cracked up to be being a Princess, not at the Gala anyway. It's boring as watching paint dry. Just...standing there waving to party ponies showing up...not really caring long as they get to shake your hoof because you happen to have a horn and a pair of wings." She shurgged as they made their way towards the center of the ball room. Music was clearly being played by the famed Octavia and her band.

 

 

It was enriching music, meant for slow dancing and retreat. She couldn't help but smile to it as they made their way to the table. There was a large selection of orderbs that didn't seem too out of the ordinary, while some seemed a little out of her taste. "Hmm...some of these just...don't look too inviting...I admit it..." she said as she levitated what looked like a piece of brocolii with some cheese on it. She sniffed it, then slowly placed it in her mouth and chewed... A look of green and disgust plastered her face, but she forced the bite sized item down. "Gah...freshly aged blue cheese...not exactly my favorite..."

 

"It is a delicousy in Canterlot...your Highness..." the buffet earth pony spoke firmly, with an eye brow up at Obscure.

"Okay then, I guess we could speak to him later, and I'm starting to get hungry." Obscure follows Bliss to the ball room, but stops as she turns round to speak to him. "Well maybe you'll get used to it after a while, or you could just hide in a cupboard when ever there is a party like this happening." He continues following her until they are at the centre of the ball room, towards the table of nibbles. He giggles a bit at Bliss' comment, and then even more at the face she pulls once she puts the food in her mouth. "Would you like some?" He asks her, pulling out a cup of chocolate milkshake.

 

Once they leave the table of awful broccoli on blue cheese and not-so-good waiters, they slowly walk to the dance floor. The band are still playing classical music from the stage, and plenty of fancy ponies are dancing and unfamiliar dance to Obscure. They walk to the centre of the dance floor, getting a few stares from the dancers around them as they do. "Do you think you might, uh, dance, with me?" He asks Bliss, blushing extremely red as he does.

@,

 

She too blushed a bright pink on her white coat cheeks, feeling as shy as a young filly on her first day of school. She noticed many of the ponies were staring at them, partially for the fact of who she was, and who she was with. She frowned at them, thinking 'how rude of them to be staring at us in such a way...expecting so much.' But then she looked up to Obscure, looking as nervous as she was, and smiled knowing her husband would have loved it if she cheered up their friends if they were uncomfortable.

 

"I would love to," she smiled and stuck her hoof out waiting for him to take it. "Oh but before you do, I just want you to know that I am a married mare. This is just a friendly dance, to break the ice around these stiff ponies..." She giggled at them while giving them a firm frown that said 'ya go ahead and look cause we don't care.' "But don't worry I'm sure he wouldn't mind it. In fact I think he is kinda expecting me to have a little dance with a few friends here and there." She smiled to him and waited for him to take her hoof, wondering how good of a dance they'd do.

Roac finally arrives at the Palace, where the Gala is being held. "Surprising how hard it was to get here", he mumbles to himself as he walks inside, handing his purchased ticket to the guard.

 

The rental suit was a size too short, and he could barely even fit his blackjack into a concealed spot on his self. It was a last resort, and Roac hoped that this job would go smoothly enough that he wouldn't have to use it.

 

Roac scans the crowd, analyzing and playing out various plans of action. He finally decides that he should try to make himself look less conspicuous by mingling, before trying to steal anything.

 

Walking into the ballroom, he instantly spots a certain alicorn and draconequus. " Ask... and you shall recieve," he says with a smug grin as he saunters over casually to meet them.

 

(And now for filler:)

I am the very model of a modern Major-General,

I've information vegetable, animal, and mineral,

I know the kings of England, and I quote the fights historical,

From Marathon to Waterloo, in order categorical;

I'm very well acquainted too with matters mathematical,

I understand equations, both the simple and quadratical,

About binomial theorem I'm teeming with a lot o' news---

With many cheerful facts about the square of the hypotenuse.

 

I'm very good at integral and differential calculus,

I know the scientific names of beings animalculous;

In short, in matters vegetable, animal, and mineral,

I am the very model of a modern Major-General.

 

I know our mythic history, King Arthur's and Sir Caradoc's,

I answer hard acrostics, I've a pretty taste for paradox,

I quote in elegiacs all the crimes of Heliogabalus,

In conics I can floor peculiarities parablous.

I can tell undoubted Raphaels from Gerard Dows and Zoffanies,

I know the croaking chorus from the Frogs of Aristophanes,

Then I can hum a fugue of which I've heard the music's din afore,

And whistle all the airs from that infernal nonsense Pinafore.

 

Then I can write a washing bill in Balylonic cuneiform,

And tell you every detail of Caractacus's uniform;

In short, in matters vegetable, animal, and mineral,

I am the very model of a modern Major-General.

 

In fact, when I know what is meant by "mamelon" and "ravelin",

When I can tell at sight a chassepôt rifle from a javelin,

When such affairs as sorties and surprises I'm more wary at,

And when I know precisely what is meant by "commissariat",

When I have learnt what progress has been made in modern gunnery,

When I know more of tactics than a novice in a nunnery:

In short, when I've a smattering of elemental strategy,

You'll say a better Major-General has never sat a gee---

 

For my military knowledge, though I'm plucky and adventury,

Has only been brought down to the beginning of the century;

But still in matters vegetable, animal, and mineral,

I am the very model of a modern Major-General.

@@Lightning Bliss,

 

About an hour and a half have passed since he broke up with his friend princess Lightning Bliss, and now found himself stuck rolling around the palace's many areas with hiss boss Photo Finish, jumping from celebrity to another while writing up notes of different subjects she or the ponies she met talked about, ranging from their current fashion choices, public relations, upcoming expos or something brief about their personal life. All ready to be unpacked into a clean paper and copied to the next issue of Vogue magazine that will be published on the next month.

 

Music playing in the background.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KuYixP1IzEU

 

Zhank you for your time, Bubbling Rose! We'll stay in touch once I'v done with our princess client! She noddingly thanked tan and pink colored unicorn mare, before motioning to her aide Polaris next to her and both began to walk towards the castle's ballroom again, while dodging all the out and incoming guests that too wanted to explore all the areas of the majestic building. As they decended down the stairs and entered to the ballroom, they were met by their other colleagues at the entrance who joined in and together made their way forward, while being questioned by their employee what did they find.

 

What have you ladies found out? Petty? She turned to Petty Stone first, who looked rather irritated. Not much really, had a run in with that cursed Cloudy Bling while talking with one of the Olive family twins. She snorted. She had the nerve to start ridiculing my manestyle and that I look like I'm somewhere around the 60's... I'M 45 DANG IT!!! She growled with a bitter hate burning in her eyes, that was immediately calmed by a full glass of wine she claimed from a nearby waiter's silver platter and drank all of it's contents with a single gulp. Miss Photo Finish could not do anything but to shook her head disapprovingly, before turning her attention to Sweet Song, another one of her reporters with a rather bizzarre looking dress as always. Sweet Song? Anything interesting?

 

Yes! I managed to take a pretty few pictures of the famous ballet dancer Dancing Velvet, that nature program TV hostess Aqua Blue and Lula Silvermoon, the daughter and heir of the August Silvermoon, the one who owns the Silvemoon jewelry corporation and has close ties to the faraway gryphon empire and it's vast hoards of exotic crystals and gems that can't be found here in equestria! Her smile became even wider. ...and I managed to get her to model in Vogue! *Squee*

 

If there would have been a smile in Photo Finish's face, no pony could have been able to see it as the fashionista merely turned her attention forward and nodded acknowledegly to the light purple and brown pegasus mare, before they stopped and gathered around a large ivory statue of the princess Celestia and replied to Sweet Song in a calm and nonchalant tone. Excellent, Sweet Song! She's been avoiding all sorts of publicity till now! It is a great honor to have ze heir of the Silvermoon to shine in the Vogue!

 

She then proceeded to motion her hoof up and caught the attention of a nearby unicorn waitress, who then walked up to the group and everyone except Petty, who already had two, took a crystal glass of wine from the platter, before the cerulean earth pony spoke out. Here's a toast to ze job well done, everypony. We've gathered enough of ze famous ponies to fill ze schedule for the whole two months! She raised her glass up while others followed. Cheers, mein colleagues! They all clinged their glasses together and took a sip. Now, it's time for ya'll to have ze rest of the night off my ponies. Go out zhere and have fun with ze others!

 

All of her crew smiled and bitted their boss the same, before scattering away from her and each one went their own ways, all for except for Polaris, who stayed with Photo for a moment as she went through all the notes her assistant had written down on his notebook. Wunderful! All ze important things have been written down and you can start unpackaging this tomorrow so that we have all that ready for me start editing in monday! He nodded thankfully at her. Just did my job, miss Photo. I will start writing the notes down as soon as I wake up tomorrow. He answered straightforwardly to Photo, who returned a nod and just as she was about to leave, she turned her head around to face him and a gave him a small, but noticeable smile that he had the luxury of rarely witnessing. Thank you, Polaris.

 

With that said, she wandered off towards a gathering of ponies nearby, leaving Polaris standing on his own under the statue, who smiled after the cerulean mare as she walked away from him. Thank you, miss Photo. You too... He said out quietly, before taking in a deep breath and with a new purpose, he eagerly began to look around for the princess Lightning Bliss within the crowd, so that he may try to caught up some of the lost time with her. Now... To find Blissy...

"WHAT DO YOU MEAN THAT I CAN'T ENTER WITH THIS CLOTHES?"

 

Volt yelled to a guard in the entrance flapping his invite in front of his head

 

"i got a pair of decent looking trouser, no oil on my shirt, i even got my favourite leather boots! what the hay is the problem with you?"

 

"s..sir you might need to calm down.."

 

"calm down? i got camomille in my blood! i am so relaxed that i can be considered dead! now take this invite and let me in 'cause i have ponies to see!"

 

"sigh.. whatever sir.. just please stay calm.. it is an high level galà, don't cause troubles please..."

 

"troubles? me? ah mate i am the most classy pony you have ever meet in your life!"

 

Volt said patting and then pushing away the guard'shoulder, he then entered trotting in the big white room

 

"uhm... uhm uhm interesting architecture... "

 

he then looked around

 

"boring stuff and probably borin ponies.... "

while talking he reached the buffet table, filling his mouth with  a tart and caviar

 

"b..bleah.. this tastes like dead fish... can't they have some cupcakes or more sweet stuff.. bah i will ask later.. now where can i find Bliss..... uhm"

@, @, (OOC ya in the future plz don't attempt any forms of Filler, I've already had to update the rules on that just cause I thought it was obvious. This is a professional RP, be creative and dont fill.)

 

 

She had never expect Obscure to be so gentle and light on his feet, but it was probably due to the fact that every now and then he'd lift her off the ground so they litterally be dancing at least five inches off the floor. The enchantment of it made her giggle, giving her the feeling like she was a young imaginative filly again, when she never did have magic and that it always fascinated her when it was performed. With Obscure it was no exception. He'd take her hoof and spin her around a few rotations before taking her back by the waist and hoof and lead on, in a more playful and dramatic way. His eagle claw softly coaxing her hoof while his cat paw softly pushed her along side him...Poetry. She felt so alive and free as they danced, like two swans dancing on a clear lake.

 

Some of the other ponies would watch as they danced, talking and frowning at them for awhile. But as the dance number continued on they realized the two odd couple weren't causing any harm,  and were quietly enjoying themselves. They could only smile back after realizing so and continued on with their own agenda of chit chat and eating orderbs.

 

Bliss could do no more then smile and enjoy the magic of what was happening during their dance. Far as she was concerned they were somewhere else, having a fun playful dance together as new friends. 'I've...made a new friend,' she realized to herself, 'a new friend...who accepts me for who I am...not what I am...'

 

Then at the corner of her eye, a well dressed, sharp looking wingless gryphon in light brown and white feathers approached them, looking eager to meet them. She couldn't understand why, but the sharp, secrety looking glare in his eyes gave her a red flag to be on alert. She tapped on Obscure's arm to get his attention to stop and put her down. "Y-yes?" She asked the gryphon, "May we help you?"

Obscure slowly reaches out and holds on to Bliss' hoof with his claw, and then places his paw onto her waist. They slowly start to dance in time with the music being played. As they are dancing he notices a few ponies sitting down around the dance floor staring at the two of them. He wasn't using any magic, so obviously the ponies are staring and wondering why the princess is dancing with a potentially dangerous creature. He ignores them ignores them as he is having too much fun for something like that to affect it.

 

Occasionally he accidentally lifts her too high and pulls her three or four inches into the air. "This is so much fun!" Obscure says to Bliss. They continue to dance as the band begin to play a different song, while all the other ponies dancing start to perform a different dance to them.

 

Obscure is so enthralled in the dance, he doesn't notice that Bliss is tapping him on the shoulder. He stops dancing and puts her down. "Whats happening?" He asks her. As he turns around she greets an unfamiliar griffon that has stopped in front by them.

(NOTE: I'm still new to this setup, and I'm using mobile, so forgive me if I'm a little clumsy with mentioning and such)

 

The griffon smiles casually, his expression soon turning to comically sudden alarm. "Ah! Sorry, silly me, very clumsy," he rambles as he darts out of your way.

 

His brown feathers and coat ruffle in a messy manner as he moves. As you notice, the movement appears to be extremely uncomfortable.

 

He clears his throat as he rears up on his hind legs to lean up against the wall. You noticed a slight accent in his voice-- Saddle Arabian, maybe? It doesn't quite matter.

 

As he leans back, Roac delves back into analyzing the situation.

 

~I've managed to waltz my way into the dancing portion of the Gala. A princess (one whom I don't know about) and Discord... At least, I think it's Discord.~

 

~Lots of different aristocrats here... The princess doesn't look like she has much on her, but some of the others should be easy pickings... Although, she MIGHT have some information about the locations of some valuables... That being said, I'm like a kid in a candy store here...~

She blinked at the odd flightless gryphon as he continued on his merry way, noticing that he was watching her along with other seemingly important ponies within the room.

 

"Sorry Obscure," she told him as she gave back her hoof to continue on with the dance, "he just seemed...like an odd character. It looked like he wanted to speak with us on something. Now he's just standing in the back of the ball room," she continued to dance allowing Obscure to lead once more as she spoke quietly to him, "watching us and a few others... Dunno why that makes me so uncomfortable."

 

She attempted to shrug it off and try to continue having fun with her new friend. "Oh well it's probably just my silly over dramatic sense of worry. I do hope I get to dance with other friends of mine when they get here. I think I sent an invitation to another friend of mine. Don't know if you heard of him. Doctor Volt? He's a funny pegasus. Works at the Ponyville damn." She giggled as she described her engeener skilled friend, "he's kinda quirky, like you! I'm sure the two of you would get along if you got the chance to meet!"

Her eyes went wide and the sudden introduction of Volt's overly excited entrance to seeing her, but once he was asking who her friend was and saw the opprtounty, she couldn't restrain her excitment and fluttered into his neck and chest in a deep friendly long awaited hug. "GODS VOLT!" She spoke louder then she wanted, "It's been so long! You made it! I guess you did get my invitation after all!" She nuzzled under his chin affectionatly knowing, just like with Polaris, it had been a long time. Then she opened her eyes realizing other ponies were mummbling and questioning her actions as 'Princess' and quickly toned down and pulled away from him, rubbing her head in embrassement.

 

"Ahem," she tried to recover and talk quietly, "Sorry you don't like the whole dress up and all Volt... if it makes you feel any better I only agreed to this makeup and my crown and...necklace...in exchange for not wearing a silly gala gown. But oh gods my manners," she raised her hoof up and coaxed Obscure closer to Volt. "So sorry, Obscure? This is my friend Volt, the one I was just telling you about! Volt? This is Obscure, he's a draconous, kinda like discord but no relation. We were just having a little fun dancing and enjoying orderbs."

 

Once again she couldn't contain herself and hugged her long awaited blue pegasus friend, "I've missed you so much! It's been far too long! How are things with you?"

The griffon becomes noticeably uncomfortable as Volt arrives, eyeing him cautiously.

 

~An intellectual pegasus. Probably works over at the Weather Factory, in Cloudsdale. I've heard only bad things about that place, so it will be best to be cautious around him...~

 

Roac walks out of the ballroom, "catching" a few valuable objects left on the tables without any pony noticing.

 

~This place is teeming with royalty and aristocrats, but it's teeming with guards, too. I'd better be careful if I don't want to leave on a noose.~

 

Roac shoves his claw into his pocket to feel for his blackjack.

~Good, it's still there. That means that I'm the only thief in Equestria crazy enough to try and rob the Gala...~

~... Well, as long as I don't have any competition, I might as a well have some fun, right? After all, this is the Gala-- the most famous event in the world, the one time where every nation meets for a single purpose; to enjoy themselves. Why should it be barred from a thief, or any of the working class, for that matter? There's some sort of saying for this... Oh, it's, uh... "you only live once." ~

@@Lightning Bliss, @@Doc. Volt, @,

 

As he plowed through the thick ocean of ponies around the ballroom, he noticed a very peculiar sight in the middle of the dancing floor where some of the ponies began to dance to the classical waltz of the Octavia and her band of musicians were playing. It was the acquintance of miss Bliss he had a brief glimpse earlier, it was a draconequus creature. who's long form sticked out from the sea of guests that looked exactly like the spirit of chaos Discord, with whom he had the unfortunate luck of running into some years back and turning him into various embarrasing forms of critters.

 

Not to help the matters that this very same creature assisted lord Tirek to try taking over the equestria not too long ago made him gringe his teeth. However with a further observation from afar, he did notice that this creature had some features that didn't match with Discord, such as the fact that this one looked way too young and how he had been invited here to the palace in the first place was a clear sign that there must be something different and special about this particular draconequus. As some of the ponies walked and trotted about before him and gave a more clearer sight towards the dancing floor, to his surprise he noticed none other than princess Lightning Bliss and Doc. Volt both standing next to the creature and seemed to be having a good time with each other.

 

He took the opportunity and began making his way across the hall towards the edge of the dancing floor and with a smile and a nod, approached princess Lightning Bliss. There you are, miss Bliss! Sorry for leaving you so suddenly earlier, but I had to get my work out of the way. He took a sip of wine from his glass. Boss wanted me to tag along to take notes as we collected important names of some very important mares to the future photo sessions of Vogue magazine. He turned his head towards the familiar blue pegasus engineer and gave him a respectful nod and wide smile. Doctor Volt! It is so good to see you again, my friend! He raised his hoof to pat him on his shoulder gently. How have you been? It has been quite a while. Still working in the ponyville's electrical dam? Did you love the package of fine imported gryphonian emerald wine I sent you about a month ago? I was hoping you'd appreciate a fine drink every now and then.

 

His attention then turned upwards towards the imposing draconequus next to him and instead of showing the creature distrust and disdain, which could tell that this creature was afraid of by the look in his eyes, he instead reached his hoof towards him and smiled sincerely at him. Good evening there, I am Polaris, an old friend of princess Lightning Bliss and Doctor Volt here. His eyes ran across the draconequus from down to top and backwards with fascination. I don't think I've seen your kind around that often, mr...?

He soon forgets about the strange griffon as a pony in relatively greasy clothes approaches them, he probably just came out of work. "Hello, Doctor Volt is it?" Obscure firmly takes Volt's hoof and shakes it. "This isn't my kind of party either, it needs more balloons." He pulls a cup out from under his top hat and gives it to Volt. "Chocolate milkshake?" He turns around to another pony talking to the three of them. "Obscure Serenity, but you can just call me Obscure." He puts his paw out to shake with Polaris and hands him a cup of chocolate milkshake. "Bliss told me that both of you are awesome and fun."

 

Obscure poofs the group to an empty table, where they are out of the way of the dancers. "We were taking up a load of the dance floor, so if we're here they can dance and we can talk." He sits down by the table and picks up one of the sandwiches. "Sit down, i'm quite certain you all need some food. After this we can do whatever else ponies usually do at these parties." He places plates for each of them to use onto the table.

Almost as soon as he left, the strange griffon stumbles back into the ballroom. It appears that he just got thrown out of an argument between two stallions who have had just a few too many appletinis.

 

The griffon brushes off his suit and walks towards you as if nothing had happened.

 

"Ah, um... Hello all..."

He turns to Lightning Dust and Obscure

"Forgive me for stumbling into your way back there-- it's my first time here, and I was hoping to meet some ponies."

"My name's Roac. Pleased to meet you all!"

 

He appears very amiable, having lost his suspicious, calculating gaze. You notice, now that you can get a good look at him, that his suit, although sharp in appearance, is practically skintight on him.

 

~Discord, a princess, a scientist, and a reporter. All of them ponies that I would normally run the risk of getting caught by hanging around, but tonight is time to try something different.~

 

"Oh, and um, forgive my lack of wings. Most ponies are kind of disturbed by that, so I just wanted to get that taken care of before-paw."

 

The griffon grins nervously. He appears to be good at a few things, and people skills are not one of those things.

@, @, @@Polaris, @@Doc. Volt,

 

(OOC, first off Roac lol, it's "Lightning Bliss", secondly Brechard's OC is named "Obscure". To learn about my OC you can see her page in a link under my signature)

 

She giggled as the talented and playful Obscure vanished them into their own private table over looking the ballroom. Some ponies seemed quite started by the sudden use of magic, but all quickly calmed when they noticed she, along with a valient unicorn Polaris and hardworking citzen Volt, where there at the table and went about their mingles.

 

"Hehe well I'm glad you were able to find me Polaris," Bliss continued the conversation, "and don't worry I knew you and your boss partially came to the gala for business. It's the best time after all." She sipped a milkshake that Obscure seemed to be handling out lightly tonight, "but yes Volt, Polaris? This is Obscure, I met him not too long ago, he's quite the gentlecolt, playful too! If I had my way with the Gala I think I'd allow him to put his talents to use and color the place up more." She turned and looked amongst the crowed, "though I admit... after that little dance we've had, you have to admit this is a romantic like setup."

 

She reached up to itch her head then, only to find her cursed crown was in the way and took it off and placed it on the table to get better access to the itch. Once satisfied she stared at the odd crown with a red heart ruby jewel in the center...for some reason she felt uncomfortable seeing it in front of her then it being on her head.

 

Then suddenly Roac once again showed up, looking even more suspicious to her then ever as he spoke, but not wanting to be rude nor assume too much about his behavior, she smiled and replied, "Hello Roac, nice to see you again. Please, pull up a chair if you wish to chat with us. My name is Ligh- ahem.." she frowned realizing she was encouraged to address herself formally at the gala, "My name is Princess Lightning Bliss...and these are my good friends Polaris and Doctor Electron Volt. This fine colt here is Obscure, I just met him tonight, kinda like you." She fiddled with her crown again before finally replying to his last sentence, "and oh sorry for staring on you not having wings, it's just not often I see a gryphon without them. I work alot at the East Gryphon Empire with Empress Nortica and see alot of gryphons all the time. Just you'd be the first to not have wings."

(OOC: I knew that IRL.)

 

Roac smirks and sits down at the table.

 

"Thank you, ملكة جمال. I appreciate the hospitality..."

 

He examines Bliss's crown briefly. "... Your crown looks beautiful... It might look better on you with some jade or sapph--"

 

Roac covers his beak in embarrassment. "Forgive me again, highness! I just think about things, and I end up blurting them out loud..."

 

He calms down somewhat, and his gaze becomes thoughtful.

 

"So... How is the Gala? Wait, nevermind-- if it weren't for the fact that your friends were here-- yes, I can tell.-- you wouldn't be here, if you had any say in the matter..."

 

He turns to Bliss

 

"...And you must have the worst of it. The newest princess, the one that everypony is itching to meet-- but they don't really care, for the most part, about you. They only see you as a golden opportunity to get a better standing in the world, not as an actual mare with emotions and a life of her own. Luckily, you have some true friends, people you can depend on to help you through all this nonsense. I couldn't go on for a day in your position, not the way I am."

 

Roac leans back and folds his claws together, sitting quite calmly after a burst of passionate and eloquent speech.

@,

 

She blushed a bit but gave the gryphon a soft 'thank you' like smile back.

 

"Well..." she said happily though rather shy, "I think this would be the first time since my friends here, that somepony else saw me for an actual 'mare' and not just for this crown on my head..." she pushed the golden nusence away closer to Polaris. "To be quite honest I hate jewelry... I find it a weight on myself, and a fashion statement I've not all been too comfortable with. It makes me feel like I'm desperate for attention or something..."

 

She levitated the crown up into the air and made it look like it was talking "Hey look at me look at me! I have a crown on my head, this means I'm important look at me!" She snorted and slammed the crown on the table. "Op...sorry fellas..." she apologized to the others as well as Roac, "I'm just a little flustered. Princess Celestia, Luna...they both encouraged me to come to the Gala. They said that it was time for me to stop hiding and to accept who I am, at least for this one night. That the citizens deserved the opprotunity to at least meet the pony responsible for keeping the peace between other kingdoms...To be honest though I don't find it a big deal...They can hear about what I do in the Equestria Daily... "

 

She sighed a bit and sipped more on her milkshake.

 

@@Doc. Volt,

"Dunno, guess I'm just having one of those pout days. But enough with my rammbling, how goes work for you Volt?" She asked her work dressed, pegasi friend.

@@Polaris, @, @, @@Lightning Bliss,

 

"bwa bwa bwa???? "

 

Volt said looking at Polaris

 

"yousent me whaaat?? ARGH!! CELESTIA CURSE THE ROYAL AIRMAIL!"

 

Volt beated his hoof on the ground angrily

 

"first my components then this, Bliss!"

 

He turned to the mare

 

"if you ever get the opportunity, please ask the ponies in charge of the royal airmail that their service sucks! i can't go on losing stuff and bits! Sigh.. and now i didn't even receive Polly's  gift.... ah.. well.. for the work.. quite as the usual, Cloudsdale is requiring more energy lately, they are planning to bring some storms in some zones of Equestria that lately didn't got covered by enough rain, the Coils are working at full regime to send them all the lighting as possible, i just hope that they will help to improve the Equestrian weather"

 

Volt then turned to the Draqonesque

 

"well well well...this is interesting... you got quite some powers eh! "

 

he said taking the milkshake

 

"i sure do love this! may i ask you if you work somewhere or do something for the Equestrian nation? I am sure that a creature with your skills will be very usefull.. oh sorry"

 

he patted his own head

 

"i am being rude again, sorry, not used to meet much new ponies ehe"

 

the pegasus then turned to the grhyphon, watching him with quite a subspicius face

 

"uhm, well, nice to meet you! i doesn't happen everyday for a pegasus to meet a grhyphon without ending in a fight eh eh... nah just kidding, i am not one of those ultranazionalist and conservative close minded subjects up there"

@Lightning Bliss

 

Roac grows quiet, caught in thought. He's much nicer than he first appeared to be.

 

"... I... I should do this more often..."

 

He laughs at his statement.

 

"You... You are a good pony, Bliss. Equestria is privileged to have a princess such as yourself in power."

 

~I didn't expect to find this here... potential friends? I have to say, this is a good piece to find, better than any golden forks or whatnot...~

 

Roac gets so enthralled with these new ponies that he forgets about what he had originally came to the Gala for, completely happy to sit and talk with Bliss and her friends for the rest of the night.

 

He rests his head on his knuckles, and asks yet another question. "So... How is it to live as royalty? To have... money, stuff like that? Is it as good as all the others make it seem like?"

 

He looks at you intently, his hawk-like head tilted to the side as his amber eyes glow wide and brightly with inquisitive energy. He seems, to put it simply, very interested in how it feels to be wealthy and privileged. It's odd-- earlier he seemed brooding and sinister, but now he's very innocent and goodhearted.

 

@Doc. Volt

 

Roac laughs. "Actually, you're partially right about that. Although griffons can be just as good or bad as you ponies, we tend to lean towards violence. We're made up of 2 different animals, and both of them are hunting predators."
