Paladins - Thread 13 DM 368802

Sidus was getting an outfit
And other things were going on too

Star Hopper [Cleric] 368806

I was chatting with Gold Platter.

"Huh? W-What do you mean?"

DM 368809

"To think about life. Myself. The choices I've made and the reasons I've made them for."

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 368810

I was going to get some more defense training from Shield Wall, but a random thought has told me I should go to the library to find a book on ballroom dancing.
There should be one, right? '1d10'

Roll #1 4 = 4

Papaver Field [Mage] 368811

I was talking about why dresses with Layline.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 368813

I frown a little
"L-Like… uh… why the B-Battlemaster was so angry?"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 368814

I was chatting to Balsa and he was trying to send me out sneaking right?

Sidus [Rogue] 368818

And how is it going along?

DM 368823

There is.
It is a big one. Looks complex too.
[It takes two or more - By: "Crusty" Crab Swayin']
You summoned one more permanent one, and stored a critfail, right?
"I had made some… really bad calls in the past few weeks."
"That's right. Go get us some glasses of water from the drinking fountain without being seen."
He is working on it.
Burning is happily tapping her hooves with a smile on her face.

Lime Rock [Shaman] 368824

I don't exactly have anything to do until the Gala
so I will just await for that to roll along for now

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 368825

I'll frown a little.
There isn't one that's easier to understand, is there? '1d10'

Roll #1 9 = 9

Papaver Field [Mage] 368826

Nah it was 2 and 1 critfail.
So I should have enough for everyone, and 2 stored critfails.
Which is an idea I really dislike, but okay.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 368827

I sit back onto my haunches
"W-What happened? What did you d-do? Uh… i-if you don't m-mind me asking…"

Sidus [Rogue] 368829

Well, let him work.
Walk beside Burning, and wrap my tail around hers.
"You look happy~"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 368830

"No problem." I say confidently.
Walk over to the door and peek in the hall.

DM 368836

In the mean time, why not go chat with one of the NPCs a little so I get to know you?
Like the battlemaster, so you can also ask for a suit for the gala.
[Dancing for Eggheads: Beginner Edition - Now with lots of pictures!]
Oh please. You have permanent conjuration and yet still you complain?
"It's a long story.. of deception and betrayal.
But the gist of it is that I helped a fellow cadet steal the special somepony of another."
"With good reason~"
Silent. Dark. Empty.

Cherry Merry [Bard] 368838

Well that's a good start.
Get to the drinking fountain, sneaky.

Roll #1 4 = 4

Sidus [Rogue] 368839

"Reason being?"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 368840

Perfect. I'll take both that one, and the more difficult book for once I've got the basics down, and go check them out.
Then, I'll head to the training fields and find Shield Wall. Hopefully he isn't busy with other students.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 368841

I look at him with wide eyes
"W-What? But… that's horrible! Why w-would you do that!"

Papaver Field [Mage] 368842

But surprise!
It sounds so ominous!
"So, can I have access to this place?"

Lime Rock [Shaman] 368844

Right. The battlemaster sounds like a badass, let's go pay him a visit.

DM 368853

As you creep along the darkness, you see a door open in front of you, and a groggy student walk out.
"You'll see at the gala~"
He is trying out some holds on a training dummy
"Cadet. Good day. Mind pinning my hoof behind my back? I need to try something."
"For a friend in need…
But, as I have laid here, unable to so much as walk on my own… I have understood just how bad a call I made."
"On your own?
…normally I'd say no.
But you are… something of a special case. So very well. We can get a key for you in my office."
His office is on the third floor in the main building.
After a knock on the door he asks you to enter.

Papaver Field [Mage] 368854

"Thank you sir. I promise not to blow myself up."

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 368855

And I'll pin it there, I guess. '1d10'

Roll #1 4 = 4

Star Hopper [Cleric] 368856

I keep frowning
"Y-You sure did… That's a h-horrible thing to do! W-What happened to that f-friend!?"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 368857

Hide. '1d10'

Roll #1 10 = 10

Lime Rock [Shaman] 368859

then enter I shall
"Good day Battlemaster. Cadet Lime Rock reporting in."

Sidus [Rogue] 368861

"Are you saying I will like your dress very much?"

DM 368864

"Hm. Now lets see… Turn on your belly, twist around the shoulder and KICK."
He tries to free himself
"He… was expelled."
You follow him step for step, making no noise at all.
Helpfully, he leads you to the drinking fountain, then falls asleep before remembering to take his glass.
"Well met. What business have you?"
"Among… other things~"

Roll #1 4 = 4

Star Hopper [Cleric] 368865

I scrunch
"W-What about that special s-somepony? D-Did things at l-least get m-mended?"

Sidus [Rogue] 368866

I tilt my head.
"Are you hiding something from me, Burning?~"

Lime Rock [Shaman] 368868

"It's about the gala. I'd like some more information about it. I hear we are going to act as guards?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 368871

So. How 'bout them mages, uh?
"Sir, I've heard of a certain… Rivalty between us and the mage academy, is that true?"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 368872

Well that's nice.
Take a few glasses, fill it with water and sneak back to the dorm.

Roll #1 1 = 1

DM 368875

"I do not know…"
"Indeed. Take a seat and tell me a little about yourself. Then in turn I can give you some details on the duties of an Undercover Guard."
Nothing really happens
"Crap. I had a hunch this might not work on a pony."
"Rivalry might be a bit of an overstatement. We all serve the princesses after all.
Though some members of the faculty, and some students, like to fan the flames of… friendly competition."
Being a klutz, you drop the tray, breaking all the glasses on the hallway floor.
The noise seems to have woken '1d10' students.
The hallway is now full of glass shards.

Roll #1 7 = 7

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 368877

"Maybe you just need to try again? Could just be it takes more than the one shot."

Star Hopper [Cleric] 368878

"… Can y-you at least tell me their names? Y-You should try and f-fix this…"

Sidus [Rogue] 368879

Well is that dress, ready?
I'd like to sneak to the art supply room to get some marble for stonecrafting once it is done.

"Is it a surprise?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 368880

Grin a bit in glee.
"Sir, what's your standpoint on this?"

DM 368881

"Right. Might as well."
"I fear it's a little late for that. They are probably all expelled by now…"
And the suit is ready
Still have something to do in Canterlot?
"I personally think they are a bunch of uppity fucks who think just because we train our bodies we have forsaken our minds entirely."

Roll #1 4 = 4

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 368882

Can I keep his hoof pinned? '1d10'

Roll #1 9 = 9

Lime Rock [Shaman] 368883

I nod and sit down on one of the chairs
"Very well. My current skills are a little… unorthodox for a paladin, I guess. My parents are both herbalists, so I picked up a few things from there. As for why I'm here… I guess the same reason as most of the others, to serve the princesses and safeguard Equestria."

Sidus [Rogue] 368884

A bit of romantic sightseeing with Burning as long as we have the time

Star Hopper [Cleric] 368885

I keep frowning
"Y-You have to try and fix this! I c-can help! This is just u-unfair!"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 368886

Oh shi-
Go into one of the dorms.

Papaver Field [Mage] 368888

Chortle at the statement, but try to compose myself.
Blush and look embarassed.
"Sorry for that, sir.
I should be on my way now. But… If we ever were to have a friendly competition against them, I'd love to show off this new magic to them, sir."

DM 368889

"Hm. Glad I tried it here and not in the battlefield. Best make a note of that. Diamond Dog wrestling techniques do not work on ponies."
"Hm. And what about you, as a person?"
Want to RP that, or?
"I fear the best I can do is… make up for it once I graduate. Seek them out. Offer them my apologies and aid…"
Just a random one?
"Try not to blow up before that. I'd love to show you off to them."

Cherry Merry [Bard] 368890

Now that you mention it,
hopefully one where ponies are still sleeping.

Roll #1 3 = 3

Star Hopper [Cleric] 368891

I pout
"I c-can't believe this… I felt s-so bad for you w-when you were brought in t-too! But y-you're just a cheat!"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 368892

"Right. Can't buck a tree with a plow, after all."
I'll let go of Shield Wall.
"So, what should we cover today, sir?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 368893

Nod eagerly.
"I won't let you down, sir."

Well, I'm kinda done until the Gala. Is Burning around? I haven't talked with her in a few…

Sidus [Rogue] 368894

I guess we can just say we had a terrific time and she loves me more than ever.

Lime Rock [Shaman] 368895

"Me? Well I like sculpting for one, lots of fun and all that."
I shrug
"Don't know why that's important, but you asked."

DM 368896

Not even close.
You rush into a room, and come face to face with '1d4' male cadets.
"I know…
That is all I have been able to think of since I came in here. I ended up here because I was given a choice. Expulsion… or enduring a fight with the Battlemaster."
"Anything you feel you need training in, in particular?"
I can find a point in time where she is.
"Oh, hey."
Rolling for time quality
"And what do you think of the world we live in, and the ponies that populate it? What do you think of war and of sacrifice?"

Roll #1 3 = 3 / Roll #2 9 + 2 = 11

Cherry Merry [Bard] 368898

I try to look as cute as I can.
In a low voice I say "Please, please, please don't tell on me."

Sidus [Rogue] 368899

I will need an excessive description on that.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 368900

I'll think for a minute.
"Well, sir, I don't think we've covered shield-less defense. Either with just a weapon or without anything."

Star Hopper [Cleric] 368901

I huff
"W-Well I hope you really do f-feel bad for what you did… If s-somepony tried to steal J-Jon from me I'd… I'd… I'd b-be really upset!"

Lime Rock [Shaman] 368903

I shrug
"Equestria is a great place, mostly thanks to its inhabitants. If there are baddies out there that are dumb enough to try and challenge us, then so be it. I don't see the point in war, but sometimes you just gotta beat some common sense into someone until they stop doing bad stuff… or die."

DM 368904

They look at eachother, then back at you with a grin
"I think you can give us a reason to keep this a secret"
It was quite a day.
You walked around the city square, having a fine lunch in one of the many restaurants.
You went to see the palace, spoke with a few guards who were former Academy cadets, and checked out the magnificent view from the walls.
And when nobody was looking, you climbed a rooftop, where Burning gave you a long and thorough apology for her misguided attack from earlier.
And being a good waifu, she ensured there wasn't even a drop of mess anywhere.
Well and truly satisfied, you returned to the academy.
"Very well. Drop your shield and lets see where it goes."
"I know I feel bad. As I said… it's all I've been able to think of."
"And does might make right?"

Sidus [Rogue] 368906

Goddamnit DM
Couldn't you keep it clean for fucking once in your lifetime?

Anyway, have Burning go and check if the art teacher is distracted again.
Try to initiate sneak mode myself.

Roll #1 10 = 10

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 368907

I'll put my shield down, and, since he hasn't put up a sword, I'll leave mine sheathed.
Dukes up. '1d10'

Roll #1 4 = 4

Star Hopper [Cleric] 368909

I keep shaking my head at him
"W-Well have you thought of other w-ways to make up for it b-besides apologizing?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 368910

Nod at her.
"Did you solve that little problem of yours?"

Lime Rock [Shaman] 368912

"That depends on what that might is used for and for what reason."

Cherry Merry [Bard] 368914

Trot over to the one who spoke and flutter my eyelashes.
"Oh I definately can for such a handsome stallion as yourself."
Touch his front leg with my hoof.
"But not here, I know a far better place."

DM 368915

She bought you a big bowl of ice cream and didn't even drop any.
Get your mind out of the gutter.
Welcome to sneak mode.
He tried a jab
"In time… if I can find them… I will see to it that I help them overcome an equal or greater injustice. Somehow…"
"…which problem?"
"So that's a no then?"
"I'm listening."
The other butt in closer
"We're listening."

Roll #1 9 = 9

Papaver Field [Mage] 368916

Roll my eyes and mimic the size of her axe with my hooves open wide.
"This problem! Your axe!"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 368917

"Hmph. I r-really hope so. F-For your own sake as a p-paladin."

Sidus [Rogue] 368918

Let's go with that.
Keep it clean.
I mean, ice cream can make a huge mess.
Sneak into the arts supply room once again.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 368919

Ouch. I'm probably going to feel that.
Still, they can't all get through. Maybe trying to deflect the next one instead of just taking it? '1d10'

Roll #1 9 = 9

Lime Rock [Shaman] 368920

"I guess. Although I doubt I would say and think the same thing when facing somepony evil."

Cherry Merry [Bard] 368921

"Meet me tomorrow afternoon near the training fields and I'll show you.
Oh, and if you do me a tiny little favor by bringing me a few glasses of water, I'll make it.."
Lean in real close to him and stare him in his eyes.
"extra special."

DM 368922

"Oh right that one. Yes.
…am I a bad pony?"
It totally wasn't ice cream and we both know it.
Welcome to the closet.
He throws a hook
"Hooves up cadet!"
"And how does one know who is evil?"
"How about you give us a little taste of what is to come first, hm?"
"We'd hate to just be left hanging"

Roll #1 7 = 7

Cherry Merry [Bard] 368923

Kiss him

Roll #1 5 + 2 = 7

Papaver Field [Mage] 368924

Cock me head.

Sidus [Rogue] 368926

I refuse your reality and replace it with my own.
It was ice cream.

Look for marble that could be used for sclupting.

DM 368929

He smiles
"I… approve."
The other two frown
"What about us?"
"Don't we get anything?"
"Well I found this really fitting pair of spiked gauntlets… then did a stupid thing I still regret."
The amount of marble available is
1 - none
6 - enough
10 - you can even move it thanks to a neat little trolley

Roll #1 1 = 1

Lime Rock [Shaman] 368930

"I'm sorry Battlemaster, but these really aren't questions I can answer just like that. It's one thing to decide the difference between good and evil while sitting here, but on the battlefield? A completely different story…"

DM 368931

"Then how do you know I'm not evil?"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 368932

Looks like block that one fine.
Keep my guard up. '1d10'

Roll #1 10 = 10

Sidus [Rogue] 368933

Any other fancy sclupting material?
I don't need a trolleyful of it either, just something that is enough for a small bust sized statue.

Cherry Merry [Bard] 368934

Smile at them.
"Well, I wouldn't like to leave you hanging….if you'll get me those glasses of water."

Papaver Field [Mage] 368935

"Okay, now looks like a good time to have another talk on controlling your spirit in battle, uh?"

Lime Rock [Shaman] 368936

"I don't. I never can. Even the noblest pony has its dark sides that may overtake him or her at any point in their lives. It's entirely possible you secretly worship Grogar and use this academy as a guise to draw in bodies used for sacrifice. But paranoia is dangerous, so I simply assume you aren't."

DM 368937

"Good. Keep moving, it helps you avoid bad blocks"
1 - paper mache
2 - clay
3 - granite
4 - jade
5 - gold
"You drive a hard bargain"
"F-fine I'll do it. But this had better nt be a trick!"
The third pony leaves to get water
"Naivete can be just as dangerous.
But it is up to each of us to be the judge of character."

Roll #1 8 = 8 / Roll #2 3 = 3

Papaver Field [Mage] 368938

Nod her over to a bench, or someplace we can sit in the open.
"So, who was it? The pony you blasted off, I mean."

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 368939

That one got stopped nice. Now, let's try something tricky…
'1d10' to catch his next punch and flip him.

Roll #1 10 = 10

Lime Rock [Shaman] 368940

I nod
"I agree. But again, talk is cheap. Judgement becomes hell of a lot harder when you're drowning in adrenaline on the battlefield. Hopefully our training here will help us with that."

Sidus [Rogue] 368941

Eh, I'll take it.
Sneak out with it.

Cherry Merry [Bard] 368942

Sit down while I wait for that one guy to come back.
"So which grade are you boys in?"
I say while playing with my mane.

DM 368943

She looks down
"I wish I had just blasted someone off…"
"Don't get cocky."
"That is what I'm here to ensure. But being a good judge of character will be vital when undercover at the Gala. Telling a drunkard, and an assassin pretending to be a drunkard from one another can make the difference between life and several deaths."
You drag out a chunk of granite as big as your torso.
It is not good on your back in the least.
"First. Like you."
"What are you doing in Sword Dorm anyway? Looking for some company?"

Roll #1 5 = 5

Sidus [Rogue] 368944

I can manage.
Help it out with my TK.
Find Lime Rock!

Lime Rock [Shaman] 368945

"… are we really expecting that much trouble at the gala? I guess I'm not really all that well informed on politics but…"

Papaver Field [Mage] 368946

"Okay. Now you just have to tell me the whole story, because this might get you killed."

Cherry Merry [Bard] 368947

I giggle.
"Maybe I just like sneaking around where I'm not supposed to…"

DM 368948

You might need some time anomalies, but here he is >>368945
"Every year we get some duelist or assassin or protestor or old grudge paying a visit. That's why we send in ponies to keep it safe."
"…I hit Sidus…"
"That's not very… paladinlike though."

Papaver Field [Mage] 368949

"With… Spiked gauntlets? I guess you hurt him?
Honestly, he took pretty good a beating from me. Twice.
I don't see the problem…"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 368950

"Wouldn't dream of it, sir."
Let's keep that defense up. '1d10'

Roll #1 5 = 5

Cherry Merry [Bard] 368951

"We're not paladins yet."

Lime Rock [Shaman] 368952

"Ah. I see. Well we'll just have to doubly watch ourselves then, yes."

does Sidus want to talk?

Sidus [Rogue] 368953

I got you a nice big slab of granite too!

DM 368954

"I… hit him… in the…
After recovering from your toss, he mixes things up a bit and goes for a jump kick
"Always be ready!"
They look at eachother
"You really are one heck of a girl…"
The third one returns with four glasses
"Someone had broken a bunch in the hallway!"
Incidentally, might you need a suit for the gala?"

Roll #1 4 = 4

Lime Rock [Shaman] 368955

"Oh yes, I hear the academy provides them."

I'll wrap this up then

Papaver Field [Mage] 368956

'1d10' for realization!

Roll #1 10 = 10

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 368957

Well, that's easy enough to dodge. Not like he can change directions in midair, right? '1d10'

Roll #1 8 = 8

Papaver Field [Mage] 368958

Wince and shy back.
"That… That's gotta huuurt!"

Sidus [Rogue] 368959

I'll be here.

DM 368960

"You can pick one out at the storage. Ask the Headmaster's assistant for the key.
Was that all?"
Right down there.
With spiked gauntlets.
And her mannequin-destroying fury.
She buries her face in her hooves
"I was so mad at myself…
I'd ask him to hit me back but… that'd just be dumb…"
He falls flat on his ass
"As stated. Let not get cocky."
He gets up and tries a simple punch

Roll #1 9 = 9

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 368961

Cross-counter. '1d10'

Roll #1 9 = 9

Papaver Field [Mage] 368962

"Okay, first things first. Why did you do it?"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 368963

Once he sets down the tray I go over to him.
"Thanks, big boy."
Kiss him

Roll #1 10 + 2 = 12

Lime Rock [Shaman] 368964

"I think so! I'll be sure to visit the headmaster then, thanks!"
I get up and leave his office

DM 368965

Than ends knocking you both down
"Good one."
"I don't know… He taunted me and I… just… went for it. I guess it was an easy target I DON'T KNOW!"
The other two can only watch in envy as you grab him, kiss him deeply and softly lay down on the floor with him, running your hooves all over his body.
And run into Sidus >>368953

Sidus [Rogue] 368966

Motion at the slab of granite I got.
"We had a deal, didn't we?"
Smirk at him.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 368967

I'll rub my jaw a bit.
"I think I'm getting the hang of it, though. You've got to keep on your hooves a lot more in unarmed combat…"

Papaver Field [Mage] 368968

Raise a brow at her and scoot closer.
"Okay. So. He taunted you. He tends to do that. Too much.
And he was an easy target. I can see why, with all his boasting. But…"
Sigh and hang my head low.
"I got nothing. That's something you have to find in yourself.
Something to overcome your fury for battle…"

Lime Rock [Shaman] 368969

I sigh
"Granite… great."
I inspect the slab, how big is it?
"Was there really nothing else?"

DM 368970

"Indeed. You won't be able to rely on blocks as much. Even less so if the opponent is still armed."
"I can't even imagine how much I hurt him… I mean… can you even hurt a mare like that?
Not to mention that… I also betrayed his trust and…
…and he still forgave me."

Sidus [Rogue] 368971

"Hey, this is the best I could get. This is a Paladin Academy, not a crafter's guild, now is it?"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 368972

Stop kissing and look at him down there with a smile.
"How was that for a trick?"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 368973

"That's where the disarming we practiced the other day comes in, right? Putting your opponent on equal ground, or taking their weapon to give yourself the advantage?"

DM 368974

"I-It's a start?"
"Exactly. You learn fast, cadet."

Lime Rock [Shaman] 368975

I shrug
"I guess."
How big is it!?

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 368976

"Well, I've got to if I want to keep up with everyone else, sir. I think I'm one of the only ones who came here without any real combat training, so I'm doing my best to make sure I won't be a burden."

Cherry Merry [Bard] 368977

Eye-wink at him before getting off him, grabbing the tray and walking to the door.
Take a look at them when I'm at the door.
"See ya tomorrow, boys. Don't be late."

Papaver Field [Mage] 368978

Shake my head.
"I don't know if a mare can hurt like that, really."
I wonder if I can try thou…
"So he forgave you. Looks like a start to me. But you know what would be even better?"

Sidus [Rogue] 368979

>You drag out a chunk of granite as big as your torso.
I guess that big.
"So can you work with this?"

DM 368980

"Good lad.
Anything more you need right now?"
"What time and where do you need us?"

Lime Rock [Shaman] 368981

I nod
"Sure… but granite is a very solid kind of stone, so it's going to be real hard… I'll manage though."

Papaver Field [Mage] 368982

Tap with a hoof on her chest, as to emphatize each word.
"Finding a way to control this blind fervors of yours!"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 368983

I'll look around for a second, then swallow slightly.
"You wouldn't happen to have any tips on… dancing, would you? I signed up to help with the gala and I'd rather not embarrass myself… or my partner."

Sidus [Rogue] 368984

"The harder it is, the more rewarding, isn't it?"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 368985

"Meet me near the training field after classes.
Just make sure you're not too tired from class."

Lime Rock [Shaman] 368986

I smirk
"I suppose so. Now what kind of pose do you want it to be like? How much detail? Any accessories you'd like to hold or wear?"

Sidus [Rogue] 368987

I think for a moment, taping my chin.
"Lets see, the pose shall be a victorious one! So only a glance at it will radiate glory! And I guess I could be holding my glaive with a front hoof, just to emphasise said victory. How's that sound?"

DM 368988

She looks at her hooves
"I'm trying… but.. it's hard. Inside my heart is a fire that yearns to get out. And I can't just extinguish it."
"HA! Oh boy lad I haven't danced in years. But sure, I guess I can teach you what I remember."
"Will do"
"have a nice night"


Lime Rock [Shaman] 368989

"That sounds good, not too difficult at least. You want to wear some sort of armor or should it be completely naked aside from your weapon?"

Sidus [Rogue] 368990

"I can be naked, yes."
Smirk again.
"Allows me to show some of that muscle."

Lime Rock [Shaman] 368991

I nod
"Sounds great. You'll need to pose for me for a while so I can brand the exact image in my head. Once I've done that, you wont even need to be around anymore for me to keep working. It'll take a while to finish it though, granite is tough stuff."

Sidus [Rogue] 368992

"So when and where should we get that under way?"

Lime Rock [Shaman] 368993

"I guess we could start working on the exact pose straight away, if you've got the time. Is there an art atelier in the academy?"

Sidus [Rogue] 368994

I shrug.
"I wasn't really that interested in that, so I have no idea."

Lime Rock [Shaman] 368995

"I guess we could just take it to our rooms instead and start working from there. Don't worry, I'll clean up the mess myself…"
I pause for a moment, then snort
"… uh… that sounded kind of wrong, didn't it?"

Sidus [Rogue] 368996

I chuckle.
"It really did… Just to be clear, I have a mare already, but let's not get deeper into this."
I nod towards the dorm.
"Let's go to my room so I can pick up my real glaive for the pose."

Lime Rock [Shaman] 368997

Do we need the DM for this? We can just say Lime Rock spent some time setting up the right pose for Sidus and memorizing it.

Sidus [Rogue] 368998

I don't think we do, so we can just RP it out, an the actual crafting will be later anyway
I guess we head back to our room then, where I pick up my real glaive from my weapon's rack.
"Wait, let me figure this out…"
Strike a pose.

Roll #1 3 = 3

Cherry Merry [Bard] 368999

So where do you want to talk?
On our way back to the dorm or in the dorm?
If balsa asked something, I'll probably have said that I have my ways of handling things or something. That might have tipped you off.

Lime Rock [Shaman] 369000

I shake my head
"Come on Sidus, can you make it look even more lifeless than that? That just looks wrong."

Sidus [Rogue] 369001

I cough and nod.
"Yes, yes, that was just warm up. I was just stretching."
Strike a victorious pose for real now!

Roll #1 8 = 8

Papaver Field [Mage] 369002

On the way back to our room.
"So, how did you find your first time sneaking around?"


"Hm… yes…"
I nod slowly
"Now that looks much better already. I can work with this."
I sit in front of my granite slab, examining Sidus' pose carefully and trying to memorize it

Roll #1 10 = 10

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369004

I gulp
"Oh it was harder than I thought."
Turn to Vera with a smile.
"But I can handle myself.
I'd do anything to make sure my friends are safe."

Sidus [Rogue] 369005

I stay in place for as long as he needs me to be, smirking.
"We still need to discuss the details."

Papaver Field [Mage] 369006

Sigh and walk slowly at her side.
"My first attempt was a disaster instead. Got caught by something like a dozen stallions…
Glad you managed better than I did."

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369007

I giggle nervously.
"Well actually, I dropped the glasses of water when I tried to get back up to the room.
And I woke half the dorm.
But I made them promise not to tell anypony, so I got out safe."


I grin as I somehow manage to perfectly save that exact image of Sidus in my mind.
"… Yup. This will work just fine!"
Start slowly working on the granite slab to get a rough shape of it going

"Like what?"

Roll #1 1 = 1

Sidus [Rogue] 369009

"That's what I am asking, how detailed can you… do it… you okay?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 369010

Wince, but look in surprise at her.
"Wait- How did you manage to get back out then?"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369011

Look straight in front of me.
"I told you. I made them promise not to tell anypony.
And I even got them to bring me a few new glasses of water.
So I could pass the test and make sure you're safe."

Papaver Field [Mage] 369012

"Y-yeah but-"
Run around her trying to make eye contact.
"How did you get them to promise that? I mean, Leaf had to save me when I failed!"

Lime Rock [Shaman] 369013

And I completely beef the start, it seems
"Well… crap. Stupid granite…"

"Yeah I'll be fine…"
Try to fix this fuck up '1d10'

Roll #1 6 = 6

Sidus [Rogue] 369014

"Are you sure you can do this?"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369015

I'm starting to get nervous.
"They…they…just did.
Are you calling me a liar?
I don't lie, I just wanted to pass the test so you could be safe.

Papaver Field [Mage] 369016

Back away.
"What? No!
I just want to know how you did, so next time I don't have to fight my way out!"

Lime Rock [Shaman] 369017

"Hey! Granite is hard as shit, okay? There's a reason it's not used that often to make detailed sculptures… but I'll manage!"
Keep working '1d10'

Roll #1 4 = 4

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369018

'I..You don't want to know how I did it."
I look down.
"You'll just hate me."

Papaver Field [Mage] 369019

"Now just a minute-"
Run in front of her and place a hoof on her chest.
"Is it demonic powers? Because I'll blast you to Celestia and back if it is demonic powers!"

Sidus [Rogue] 369020

"It's also used to make lasting ones, though."
I raise an eyebrow at his attempts.
"If you tell me you can do it though, I believe in you. Don't try it though. Do it. Don't consider failure as an option."

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369021

Back off.
"What? No no, it's nothing like that…I…"
I sit down and look down and say with a weak voice.
"I told them I'd meet with them again tomorrow."


"You don't need to tell me twice, pal…"
I sit back for a moment
"Hmmm… Let's try it like this instead…"

Roll #1 1 = 1

Papaver Field [Mage] 369023

Raise my brow, honestly surprised.

Sidus [Rogue] 369024

I wince.
"Or maybe just give it a rest for now and try again after you got it figured out?"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369025

I gulp, still looking down.
"..to make up for them not telling anypony."

Lime Rock [Shaman] 369026

I facehoof.
"No… no no NO! It's all coming out wrong!"

I nod
"Yes… maybe I'm just overdoing this or something. Damn it all!"

Papaver Field [Mage] 369027

Stay silent for a while.
"So what, you gonna show them your hammer technique or something?"

Sidus [Rogue] 369028

"I told you, just give it a rest, we wouldn't want this slab to go to waste, now do we?"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369029

"No….they wanted to see something else."
I still can't look at her.

Papaver Field [Mage] 369030

"Your repertoire of songs?"
Get closer, try to make eye contact once more.
"C'mon, speak!"

Roll #1 9 = 9

Lime Rock [Shaman] 369031

I sigh
"Right. You're right of course. Maybe I just need to relax some and get my mind back to peace."

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369032

Turn my head to you, glaring at you.
"I'm going to fuck them, okay?
Happy now?
Now you know."
I glare at you for a second before my I realize what I said, lower my head and start sobbing.


Look at her with a mix of horror and disbelief.
Then, as she sobs, hug her.
Hug her there, hug her softly.
"Shh, it's okay. I won't judge you. It's okay."

Roll #1 7 = 7

Sidus [Rogue] 369034

"You got the pose down though, right? You'll just need to start working on it in peace?"
I start playing around with my glaive as I speak.

Lime Rock [Shaman] 369035

"Yes… I've got it memorized. It's probably just me being out of practice!"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369036

Try to wriggle weakly out of your hug.
Not going to work against a 7 hug.
"Nono, you hate me now.
I know it.
Tears intensify.

Sidus [Rogue] 369037

"I don't have to worry about getting another slab then, do I?"

Lime Rock [Shaman] 369038

I look at the slab and smile
"No… I'll work it out. Don't you worry. I made a promise to you and I plan to upkeep it. You'll have your very own statue of glory soon enough."

Papaver Field [Mage] 369039

Bonk her on the head.
"I have a demon inside. My parents dishowned me for the way I was born, I just did something terrible to my love…
There is no way I could hate my friend…"

Sidus [Rogue] 369040

I smirk and stop spinning my weapon around, then put it back on it's rack.
"Perfect! Say, I need to practice at the forge myself… want me to make you an ornament weapon?"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369041

"You- you don't understand…if you knew…"
Grab her and hug her tight '1d10+2', while I'm still crying.
Very silent I say.
"It's not the first time I did it…."

Roll #1 6 + 2 = 8

Lime Rock [Shaman] 369042

"Naaah, it's fine. I prefer using raw Earth power anyway, and I already have my self-made mace. Don't you worry about it, I'm glad for the practice and the challenge this presents me… even if it started off poorly."

Papaver Field [Mage] 369043

Gently stroke her mane.
"I still can't really hate you. No no."
Shake my head with a little smile.

Sidus [Rogue] 369044

I shrug.
"If you say so. I already made a sword all by myself, but it's not enough. I need to make more, and better! "
Turn to him and smirk.
"As the Smith said, a weapon you craft is like a child. Is that how you feel about the statues you make too?"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369045

Roll to calm down

Roll #1 9 = 9

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369046

I've stopped crying but still hugging tight.
"You're such a good friend, Vera.
I really don't deserve it."

Lime Rock [Shaman] 369047

I think for a moment
"That depends… Some statues take a whole lot longer to make than the others. The ones that require most effort and come out the best are the ones I treasure most. I don't think it would be fair to treat a child that way."

Papaver Field [Mage] 369048

"For what, being forced into something by a bunch of stallions?
That's just silly!"
Shake both of us up.
"Let's go back to our room and talk there, okay?"

Sidus [Rogue] 369049

I chuckle.
"That's true…. but do you believe that each statue has a soul of it's own?"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369050

I wipe of my tears with my hoof.
"Let's…let's do that."

Papaver Field [Mage] 369051

And then we walked back to our room.
"So, wanna tell me what this is all about?"

Lime Rock [Shaman] 369052

"I suppose you could say that. They all have their own stories behind them, after all. A little piece of my life inserted into them…"

Sidus [Rogue] 369053

"Not only that, but you preserve it for all eternity!"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369054

I go sit on my bed, grab my cushion and hold it tight.
After a few seconds I say
"I'm such an idiot and I just make bad decisions sometimes."

Lime Rock [Shaman] 369055

"Well, that too I suppose."
I smirk
"I always wished I would one day get the chance to get one of my works into the Canterlot gardens… A bit of a silly dream considering I just do this in my free time but… a pony never knows, right?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 369056

"You are not the pony who almost ran away from this school because she was magic…
So as for bad choices, we are pretty even."
Giggle a bit.
"In my experience, you need a friend to stop that kind of things…"

Sidus [Rogue] 369057

"If you don't give up and try hard enough, it can happen. Have you tried to actually set it up yet? Or start step by step, what if you got a statue out in the Academy grounds?"

Lime Rock [Shaman] 369058

"Hmm… maybe something to consider asking the headmaster about. I doubt it'll happen any time soon but… a colt can dream."
I smirk
"Thanks Sidus."

Sidus [Rogue] 369059

I smirk back.
"You are welcome. And if the headmaster asks, tell him that I'm with you on the idea."

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369060

Giggle a bit.
Then I sigh and look at my CM for a second.
Then I turn back to Vera.
"Vera, I told you I like to make ponies happy right?
How I love to see couples together in love.
How I would love to write songs about it….
I've always felt like that…but…"
Tears well up again.
"There's nopony out there who loves me."

Lime Rock [Shaman] 369061

"Will do. Now… I'm going to take a walk and see what I can come up with."
I get up and pull a blanket over the granite slab
"I'll bring this stuff back to my own room and work further on it."

Papaver Field [Mage] 369062

Frown and stand up from my bed, slowly moving over to her with a determinated expression.
Then, lock eyes with her and give a frown.
Hug her again.
"We are gonna find you somepony, silly."

Roll #1 4 = 4

Sidus [Rogue] 369063

I nod.
"Good luck with your inspiration!"
Stop for a moment an look at him seriously.
"And if you need help with anything, you know where to find me."

Lime Rock [Shaman] 369064

"Aye. See you around, pal."
Pick up my gear and the granite in a telekinetic field, then bring it back to my room.
After that, I'll go take a walk throughout the academy to clear up my mind.

Sidus [Rogue] 369065

I guess that wraps it up

Lime Rock [Shaman] 369066

This certainly has been… different. Was fun though!

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369067

It's a hug, but it's not that comforting.
"Who would want me….
I'm just a-
" Bite my lip.

Papaver Field [Mage] 369068

Bury my head on her mane, behind her neck.
"You did nothing wrong. Nothing more than show how strong a mare you are."

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369069

Hug her tight '1d10+2'
After a few seconds, I ask, voice trembling
"You really think I'll find a special somepony, Vera?"

Roll #1 8 + 2 = 10

Papaver Field [Mage] 369070

"Hey, you even defeated me! If I wasn't taken by Nock, I would challange you to a duel myself~"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369071

I giggle.
"I'd take that challenge~"

Papaver Field [Mage] 369072

Giggle back and let go of the hug.
"And I'm sure a dozen more ponies will take yours."
Step down from the bed, stand in front of her and look at her with a smile.
"You okay tonight?"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369073

I nod with a smile.
But Vera, will you promise not to tell anypony?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 369074

"Are you joking? First thing in the morning we go and beat up those ponies who stopped you, make sure they don't talk either!"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369076

I gasp.
"Are you sure that's a good idea?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 369077

"And if the two of us are not enough, we will call Nock. And Star and Jon and Sidus and Leaf! And even Balsa if we have to!"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369078

I gasp again, but nod.
"Okay…Just please don't tell them what I told you about…that it wasn't the first time…"

Papaver Field [Mage] 369080

"Of course.
But I told you Cherry, there's really nothing to be ashamed of. You are your own mare after all."

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369084

I look down.
"I'm not sure if I can face them…
What if they still talk…oh I'll be expelled…
My parents will be so ashamed of me…"

Papaver Field [Mage] 369085

Sit down.
"As somepony told me already, we are not here for our parents. Or to set up a family.
We are here to become paladins."
Look defiantly towards the sky.
I must be soooo cool!

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369087

"Yes…yes, you're right.
I'll try to be strong."

Papaver Field [Mage] 369092

Smile happily.
"I can't wait to see your hammer in action again~"
Give a little squee.

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369094

"Yes…we'll sure get them" I say a bit uncertainly.
Then smile a bit.
"Thanks, Vera, for everything."

Papaver Field [Mage] 369095

Wave a hoof dismissively.
"Oh please. I did nothing. The fun starts tomorrow! Now to bed, I order you!"
Giggle a bit and hop in my bed.

Hey, maybe I can even avoid my usual nightmares tonight…

Roll #1 7 = 7

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369096

"Good night Vera. Sweet dreams."
Go to sleep myself.

Nock [Tracker] 369313

>Run up to Nock and try to tackle her to the ground.
>Roll = 8

Keep standing. '1d10+1'

Roll #1 5 + 1 = 6

Nock [Tracker] 369314

Nope. Tackled.

Dully remark, "I just can't believe I didn't notice sooner. I just avoided thinking about it. All those hours spent together, then you didn't want to tell my father we're together, and now kissing? That doesn't even make sense. Why would they let you out of a restricted area because you're making out? Are you planning to get into the Collection by snogging Balsawood?"

Sigh. "I just wish I had realized it before I compromised who I was."

Papaver Field [Mage] 369326

Keep pinning her down, but open my mouth in disbelief.
"You… Idiot."
Headbutt her. Good thing we are not unicorns.
"What on Tartarus do you think, that I don't care for you?
Should I just say that I have given up on any kind of family, so it doesn't really matter if you don't want your father to know?"
Try not to cry.

Roll #1 4 - 2 = 2

Nock [Tracker] 369339

"I did want my father to know. If you had listened to me, you'd know that. I wanted him to know because I gave up everything for you. All of my beliefs. My traditions, my potential family, my father's approval were nothing because I was stupid enough to think my blind love was mutual."

Papaver Field [Mage] 369342

"But you were stalling! Each and every time, and I didn't want to pressure you because I might have lost you, damnit!"
Get off her.
"It was a kiss, and it meant nothing. Just a damn movement, lips on lips, a slap from you would be a greater pleasure, damnit!
What do I care for other ponies when I already have the best-
When I know I will have her forever, because I love her?!"

Nock [Tracker] 369344

Miserably blow my breath.

"I just don't know why your supposed first instinct under pressure is to start making out with other ponies."

Papaver Field [Mage] 369360

"He did say we were together to help me out of troubles the first time…"

Nock [Tracker] 369374

"By kissing?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 369375

"N-no! He just grabbed me and led me off to his room.
But then, when I had to leave, there were like, a dozen students there and they weren't stepping back, nopony believed it!"

Nock [Tracker] 369389

"Believed what? I don't get how making out with each other gets you through a restricted area. Wasn't the whole point of splitting the dorms up by gender to STOP that sort of thing?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 369401

"I don't know! I'm just as shocked as you are! I just know that they were looking at me in a certain way, and after what had happened a few minutes before I was scared and-"
Bury my head in my hooves and start sobbing.

Nock [Tracker] 369407

Watch her cry for a moment then return to the room while she's occupied with head in hooves.


Stay on the roof and cry some more.
Try to cheer myself up. Somehow.

Roll #1 3 = 3

Papaver Field [Mage] 369446

Nope. Looks like I'm still sobbing heavily. Shamefully trot back to the room.

Nock [Tracker] 369481

I lay slackly on my bed as you return.

"So what now?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 369496

Look at her with red eyes swolloen from tears.
"I told you Nock. It didn't matter to me. It was nothing, just a way to run out of there as soon as I could…"

Nock [Tracker] 369505

"Do you have any idea how exhausting it is to care for you?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 369509

"Hey, at least I tell you when something happens! All this time, you are treating me like… like a schoolfilly! How was I supposed to know you wanted your father to know about us, if you kept avoiding the issue?!"

Nock [Tracker] 369514

"Because I told you. The fact that you never listen is part of what's so exhausting."

Papaver Field [Mage] 369522

"But- it's just so infuriating! You say a lot of things that mean other things! I don't understand!"

Nock [Tracker] 369533

"Like what?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 369541

"Like… Everything! The last time we talked about him you said you needed time! And now you blame me for not wanting to!
Well guess what, I would love to, because he's important to you and I want to be important too!
But if you ask me to wait, I can! Because I know what losing a family is like, and wouldn't want you to feel the same, damnit!"
Panth on the floor after the outburst.

Nock [Tracker] 369551

"There's a difference between wanting something and pursuing it immediately. You had to prepare yourself for your suicidal assault on the Collection, right? I just needed to prepare myself."

Sigh. "I guess it's not an issue anymore."

Sylt 369557

Frown at her.
"What the hell are you talking about? Do you really think I'm gonna give up on you for so little? For a damn kiss that meant nothing at all?
I'm still your mare Nock. I'm gonna fight till the end for you."

Wf+6 369560

"Kisses do mean something! That's how it works in Equestria. Just… go deal with the Collection. If you live and aren't expelled, we can worry about where we are at then. I don't have the energy to stop you or to go through the pain of my girlfriend dying."

Papaver Field [Mage] 369566

"Don't be stupid! I know what a kiss means, you were my first! And for all I care, my only!
That kiss meant nothing, damnit!"
Scratch at the ground with my hooves, crying softly while looking down.
"So-" suppress the sobs. "This is it for us?
Was this enough?"

Nock [Tracker] 369573

"Or you could choose me over defining your life by demons and not go to the Collection at all."

Papaver Field [Mage] 369575

Look up at her with stars in my eyes.
"Y-you mean it?"
Stay silent for a while, then sigh.
"Nock… They would destroy me from the inside…"
Look away, wincing.

Nock [Tracker] 369578

"Going to the Collection won't change that! You said so yourself! So stop trying to bring your death sooner!"

Papaver Field [Mage] 369595

"But I won't die, either! Not like they can just kill students like that!"

Nock [Tracker] 369599

"It's probably full of demons. It's a heresy collection."

Bury my face in the bed. "But you've made your choice, I can tell. It's more important to you to go on a mission where you agree nothing can be gained where you will probably die or be expelled and will certainly sneak about dishonorably, aiding other students in besmirching their honor."

Papaver Field [Mage] 369605

Shake my head and walk up to her bed.
"No. I give up.
You are more important."
Place a hoof near her, tentatively.

Nock [Tracker] 369608

Pull her into bed and give her a big, long kiss.

When we finally break out of it, I finish with a smile, "Good. Now do I need to remind you physically how much better real love feels than a kiss from some stallion?"


Stare flatly at her.
"That's what I said the whole time!"
And roll to stay top this time!

Roll #1 6 = 6



Roll #1 10 + 1 = 11

Nock [Tracker] 369614

No doubt I bed her furiously, each rock of her body reminding her who she belongs to. I whisper in her ears sweet nothings.

Papaver Field [Mage] 369615

And then

Roll #1 8 + 2 = 10

DM 369616

And then they slammed clams furiously like starving otters in a place with no rocks.

Meanwhile, elsewhere
Things were going on and shit

Star Hopper [Cleric] 369617

I was speaking to Golden Platter? I think?

Papaver Field [Mage] 369618

I think… Burning?

DM 369619

I think his last question was
"Do you think I'm a bad pony?"
Something about her lack of control leading to horrible things

Nock [Tracker] 369620

Unfortunately this marks the end of the four hours I had to play. See you tomorrow.

Lime Rock [Shaman] 369621

Something something… making a statue out of granite for Sidus and failing at it, then getting upset and taking a walk through the academy.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 369622

"W-Well… A-At least you realize w-what you did wrong and f-feel bad for it… so t-that moved you from yes to maybe…"
I scrunch
"B-Being sorry isn't enough! Y-You have actually to try and m-make up for it too!"

Papaver Field [Mage] 369623

"So, your anger didn't really help you focus after all.
I think we should ask the Battlemaster."

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369624

something something SLUT SLUT SLUT SLUT

We beating those guys up now or should I wait for Veras talk to be finished?

Papaver Field [Mage] 369625

I'm better than Starswirl my dear SLUTSLUTSLUT
We can go whenever you want.

DM 369626

Perhaps you could spare a moment to chat with your fellow students.
Or get some training done.
Possibly read a book?
"…I can't even stand, as things are."
"I guess…
I just wish I could make it all better with Sidus. I know he forgave me but… can you really forgive something like that?"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 369627

How bad can these wounds even be? Is there no way even a powerful Mend would heal them?

Papaver Field [Mage] 369628

"Well, as long as you work to improve yourself, I guess he could."

Lime Rock [Shaman] 369629

I'd love to chat if there's anyone with spare time

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369630

We could go right now.

I'm somewhere in the Academy after class.
Walking in circles nervously.

Papaver Field [Mage] 369631

We have no Sidus/Jon if we go now.
"You feel confident about this? How many are there?"

DM 369632

When a veteran soldier is very very angry at you and wants to give you a good reason to think about what you've done, he knows what bones to shatter.
"…do you honestly think so?"
You can meet a certain someone at the training field, for one.

Papaver Field [Mage] 369633

"Well duh! Or I wouldn't be here telling you, no?"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369634

I can wait for them if you want. But I guess to be done today….

"Three…." I gulp.
"I'm not scared of them but what if they don't listen and tell on me…."

Star Hopper [Cleric] 369635

Now that is bogus.
"W-Well… you'll heal eventually…."

Lime Rock [Shaman] 369636

Oh? Well I'm wandering around the academy anyway, so I guess I'll end up on the fields eventually.

Papaver Field [Mage] 369637

"We could go ask Leaf and Balsa to deal with them…"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369638

"Balsa? But then he'll know I got caught…."

That reminds me DM, was there anything special left after I got back to the dorm with the glass of water, or shall we just say I got the glass of water and we left a bit later?

DM 369639

"I suppose.
…hey would you…
…oh second thought no. Forget it."
You try walking with four broken knees
"I know. I eagerly await the day. Then… i can start redeeming myself."
Seems there is a second year paladin there, practicing his attacks with a sword made of fire.
There was nothing to it really. It was a test of your abilities to remain undetected, and you passed.

Papaver Field [Mage] 369640

"Talk already. It never helps to hide things or have second thoughts."

Papaver Field [Mage] 369641

"Right. I guess we could ask Jon or Sidus then? Because going out there will only get us reported…"

DM 369642

She waves her hoof dismissively
"Forget it. It was just a stupid idea."

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369643

"….And who's Leaf?
Do you think he can help us?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 369644

Roll my eyes around.
"This is really starting to annoy me.
Talk already. It's an idea after all!"
"Uh? Oh I thought you knew him. He's a second year. Taught me how to conjure things."

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369645

"Oh…well if you think he can help us,
maybe we can ask him."

DM 369646

She looks around
"…would you mind hitting me?"

Lime Rock [Shaman] 369647

Oooh… observe him!

Papaver Field [Mage] 369648

"Right but… Stand near me, okay?"
And off to find Leaf we go.
Look back at her with a flat stare.
"Is it one of those 'punish me because I was bad' kind of things?"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369649

Nod and follow her.

DM 369650

The blade seems almost weightless in his hooves, and he takes advantage of it by performing all sorts of kicks and sweeps to complement his strikes.
After about two minutes, the sword evaporates into thin air and he sits down to catch his breath.
"…kinda? Or maybe I thin think I'd better know how he felt, so I'd… you know… know how to repay him?"
He seems to have just finished training out in the yard.
You see his fire sword vanish and him sit down for a breather.

Lime Rock [Shaman] 369651

I grin and approach him
"That was pretty darn neat!"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369652

If I see Lime, I "eeeeep."
Yank Vera. "No, this is a bad idea, maybe we should come back later."

DM 369653

He wipes his brow and grins
"Why thank you. And who might you be?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 369654

"I don't think he'd appreciate you getting hurt."
Go up to him.
"Lime Rock if I remember correctly, right?"

DM 369655

"I did say it was stupid idea, didn't I?"
"Vera! Long time no see, long time no ocean either.
You know this guy?"
He nods at Lime

Lime Rock [Shaman] 369656

"Cadet Lime Rock, earth magic practitioner."

I smile and nod
"I remember you two, you're friends with Sidus!"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369657

As Vera ignores me rightfully,
I go with her to Leaf and Lime and stand next to her.

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369658

"Hey, Lime."

DM 369659

"And to what do I owe this pleasure?"

Lime Rock [Shaman] 369660

"Cherry, nice to see you. Still looking forward to that musical performance you promised."

"Just stretching my legs, that's all. I saw you busy at work and decided to watch. Always love seeing elemental magic at work!"

Papaver Field [Mage] 369661

I had totally missed your post, sorry.
"Kinda. But it was still worth a shot. I think he'd love to know he's safe around you, instead."
"Yeah met him a few days ago! He's all freaky earth magic and that!"
Giggle a bit.
Nod with a smile.
"Oh, she's one of my roommates, Cherry Merry."

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369662

Smile at him nervously.
"Nice to meet you, Leaf."

"And I'm looking forward to the sculpting."

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369663

Meh, Cherry sometimes needs to be ignored a bit or she makes too much drama.

DM 369664

Well, he did get upset last time I got hurt so… yeah. As I said, forget I asked."
"Earth magic? That's rare in these parts."
"Well, I am a little limited in that. All I can do is pyromancy."
"Cherry? Well, I can see where the name is from. How very nice to meet you."

Papaver Field [Mage] 369665

>She hurts her husbando
"As I said, we should ask the Battlemaster what to do to fix your rage."
>He can only do fire
Nod in agreement with him.
"Pretty neat too.
Anyway, got a moment?"

Lime Rock [Shaman] 369666

I shrug
"All I can do is earth magic, doesn't mean I'm not happy with it!"

DM 369667

>she regrets it deeply
"We? …you want to be there for that?"
>he is going to stick it in cherry's butt
"Always. What's up?"
"A fine mindset."

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369668

"That fire sword was pretty impressive.
I wish I could just conjure swords like that."

DM 369669

"Well, it takes some rather dedicated training.
Or crazy natural talent, like in Vera's case."

Papaver Field [Mage] 369670

>that's what everyone says before taking out the shotgun
"Of course. I'm here to help you!"
Frown at her, a bit pissed she'd think I'd leave her like that.
>really, who hasn't?
"My friend here has a problem with a few stallions…
I think you know the kind."
Look crossed at her, but say nothing.
Oh fuck.
Widen my eyes and try to shrink back.
No comments on this.

Roll #1 3 = 3

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369671

"That's Vera."

Lime Rock [Shaman] 369672

I just nod

"Crazy talent?"

DM 369673

>hurt her more, Snake
"Plenty of trouble can be described like that, you know."
"Indeed. Such a talented little miracle of nature."
"Oh yes. One day she simply began pulling swords out of thin air. Quite a feat for a teenage blank flank.
Soon after, her constructs began becoming permanent to boot."

Lime Rock [Shaman] 369674

"Oh… I didn't know anything about this, Vera!"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369675

Look down sad when the trouble talk begins.

Papaver Field [Mage] 369676

>it's time to use the cigar
"Let's move it!"
Do a quick gesture with the head.
"C'mon! Let's find the Battlemaster!"
And off we go!
>that's just because I can't conjure magical sticks, yet
Oh. great.
Shrink back even more.
Look at the ground a bit awkwardly.
"Yeah, it's nothing I like to talk about too much…"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369677

Put my hoof around Vera's shoulder.
"She just doesn't like to brag about it."

Lime Rock [Shaman] 369678

I frown
"I'm sorry then."

Papaver Field [Mage] 369679

Wave a hoof dismissively.
"Doesn't matter. It's just stupid magic after all."

Turn back to Leaf.
"So. Out problem. Just like that one, you know what I'm talking about!"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369680

She's not a hole to put your dick in you pigs. She has feelings and stuff.

Papaver Field [Mage] 369681

Too bad she isn't an omniseer!

Lime Rock [Shaman] 369682

"Right… stupid magic…"

Shhh, there's always me. I'll take good care of her~

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369683

Oh god….

Take her, right in the middle of the field.

Lime Rock [Shaman] 369684

That would be extremely rude

Papaver Field [Mage] 369685

We can conjure a room for you too.

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369686

That just depends on how you take her~

DM 369687

>changing controller ports won't work this time!
And off you went.
Welcome Cadets. What business?"
>Change the plan with Cherry and you can learn a lot about the D
Rolling to not say it out loud
"Excuse me? I'm a mage you know."
Do it faggot

Roll #1 9 = 9

Lime Rock [Shaman] 369688

"I was just repeating what she said!"

Papaver Field [Mage] 369689

>I'm just gonna save and come back in a week
"Sir, I have anger issues."
>but I'm a chaste little pony lesbian who just lost the perfect occasion to drop Nock and go through with the sneaking plan!
So I take he doesn't say a word?
"Hey, let him be, I was the one who said that…"
"Yeah, sorry about it…"
Look ashamed at the ground.

DM 369690

"Hmp. Well, what can my stupid magic do for you?"
>What a thrill…
"You, Cadet Field?"
Burning looks a little worried
>Enjoy your demon-infested vagina
"So, stallion-trouble, is it?"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369691

I nod.

Papaver Field [Mage] 369692

>the ladder! THE LADDER!
"I fear to lose control and hurt somepony sir. What can I do?"
"Just the same that happened to me. She got caught sneaking around. But that's only the first part."

Lime Rock [Shaman] 369693

I frown
"I think your magic is neat…"

DM 369694

>You've never even played MGS3, have you?
"As the phrase goes, calm your teats.
Channel your fury into a more focused weapon. Make it serve your purposes. There is an entire class about this available in the second year."
>what a horrible phrase
"And the second part is?"
"Cat got your tongue, Cherry?"
"Thank you kindly."

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369695

Look nervously at Leaf and Lime.
"A few stallions caught me and said they wouldn't tell if I….went to see them again today…"
Look down.

Papaver Field [Mage] 369696

>i'm still playing through 1, gimme time. And I'd like to point out my motivation is somewhat dulled, since the whole thing has been spoiled to me in every possible way. Now, to go back in theme…
"I see. Sir, is there any chance I could get some study material about the class from now?"
>hey at least you don't have demons in your brand new and still sealed party hole!
Look from him to Cherry and sigh.
"Yeah, that. So I was hoping you could use your newfound respect to put them in their place…"

DM 369697

>1 didn't age too well I'm afraid. 2 is good for the TECHNOLOGY and 3 is even better for that.
"Usually we don't allow that. Don't you have your hooves full as is?"
Burning looks uneasy
>One you pop you can't stop
"So you want me to fix your mistake of sneaking into Sword Dorm?"

Lime Rock [Shaman] 369698

I look at the three of them in surprise

Papaver Field [Mage] 369699

>Hey, I was having a great time before entering the armory. Then quests started.
"Yes sir, but I'm just asking for some minimal material, just to quiet down."
>I'm a virtuous battle maiden. Try me.
Look expetandly at him.

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369700

Try to hide a bit behind Vera.


DM 369701

"Try meditation. Or look up the works of Serene Step in the library.
Now what about you?"
He turns to Burning
"Much the same, I'm afraid. Thank you for the book reference."
"My pleasure. Was that all?"
>careful what you wish for
He rolls his eyes
"The things I do to be nice…
Okay. Where are they?"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369702

"They were supposed to meet me near the field after class…"
Take a look around if I see them.

Lime Rock [Shaman] 369703

Whoa hold on…if these thugs are busy harassing mares like that then… I'm coming with you.

Papaver Field [Mage] 369704

"Sir, yes sir. Thank you sir."
Leave and go for the library.
"Easier than it seems, no?"
>my faith is my condom
Smile at him.

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369705

Shrink back more behind Vera.
"Oh, that's really not necessary…"

Papaver Field [Mage] 369706

"Well.. We hope it won't be necessary…"

DM 369707

You can see them around the back edge of the training field.
She shrugs
"Reading and meditation…?"
>Your armour means nothing, your faith even less.
"Lets go then."

Lime Rock [Shaman] 369708

"They best hope it's not necessary…"

"Where are those punks?"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369709

Point them out and go there, sticking close to Vera.

Papaver Field [Mage] 369710

"Yeah. I mean, if the true paladins do it, we can too. Read some from it and tell me how it works, okay?"
>do your worst, I shall resist
Let's follow the direction Cherry points out.

DM 369711

And hey… thanks for your help."
>the last time you said that, things got fun
The three are minding their own business. Seeing Cherry arrive with company, they just salute with straight faces.
"Good day."
"Can we help somehow?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 369712

Smile at her.
"Don't mention it. Anything for a friend."
Well, I guess this is not my battle anymore. Stand back and watch.

Lime Rock [Shaman] 369713

I narrow my eyes at them
"I hear some first-year punks have been bothering this mare."

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369714

"I want to say that…"
I gulp
"our deal is off."

DM 369715

And she heads to the library
>And with three of them here, the fun will be tripled.
There sure are three of them.
They look at eachother
"…come again?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 369716

Good thing there's four of us.
Narrow my eyes at them.

Lime Rock [Shaman] 369717

"You heard me, pal."

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369718

"You know exactly what I'm talking about."

DM 369719

"Who are you anyway?"
"I also recall it was you who suggested it to begin with"
"After first asking us to do you a favor. Two even."

Lime Rock [Shaman] 369720

"Cut the crap. Just leave the mare alone and we wont have any trouble."

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369721

"That's not true."
Bluff. '1d10'

Roll #1 7 = 7

DM 369722

"Look you goon, this has nothing to do with you"
"It was her idea to begin with, after barging into our room in the dead of night."
"Lies won't get you anywhere."
"You used us to get what you wanted, and now you bring thugs to silence us?"
"At least the kiss was nice…"

Papaver Field [Mage] 369723

Look from them to Cherry.
"Okay, what exactly happened here, Cherry?"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369724

Oh come on DM, did I have to explicitely write that Leaf also heard this? Who does he believe, those guys or me with a success bluff?

DM 369725

Bluff means he has no reason to assume you are a big fat liarface, so he is on your side for now at least

Lime Rock [Shaman] 369726

"You're the thugs here, don't even begin to pretend you didn't try to blackmail her."

DM 369727

"What's there to blackmail?"
"We'd simply be following academy rules if we went and told what happened to the headmaster."
"But we felt her offer was much nicer for us all."

Papaver Field [Mage] 369728

"Oh please, quit the crap! I know how your lots eyes mares!
Cherry would never lie to me, so I stand by her side!"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369729

Look down.
"Well I got into their room by accident.
And they were grinning at me, and eyeing me and asking how I was going to repay them for their silence.
So they didn't explicitely say it…"
Turn to them
"…but that's what you meant and you know it."

Lime Rock [Shaman] 369730

"This isn't about the academy rules. I don't care why she was intruding, and neither should you. If you vermin had even the slightest sense of honor, you would have let the lady go without asking questions."

DM 369731

Leaf steps to the front
"You three."
"You one."
"Real funny. We will all be spared a lot of trouble if we simply settle this in a way that doesn't break any rules. So either we forgive and forget, or you and her agree on a decent counter favor for whatever favor it was she asked for earlier. Got it?"
They huddle for a moment

Roll #1 3, 5, 1 = 9

DM 369732

The one who got the glasses turns and nods
"I'm… fine with just… another one."
The other two turn around
"Well I want a proper payment"
"And I came here for one thing and one thing only, and one way or another, I'm getting it."

Papaver Field [Mage] 369733

Step forward next to Leaf.
"Fire, Ice or Lightning?"

DM 369734

"I got the flame. You bring the cold."

Lime Rock [Shaman] 369735

I glower
"You want payment huh?"


Conjure Ice Sword.

Roll #1 3 + 2 = 5

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369737

"No you won't."
I shout at the most eager one.
WoP '1d10'

Roll #1 2 = 2

DM 369738



Cherry Merry [Bard] 369739

Well that was fun.

DM 369803

…nothing happens
And your shout is more like a whimper

Sidus [Rogue] 369804

I don't know what I was doing.
Probably Burning, hue hue hue

Wf+6 369805

What a coincidence! I don't know what everyone else was doing, but I have all day to play, so might as well fill me in.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 369807

And I'm doing… something.

Papaver Field [Mage] 369808

Take out my normal sword.
"Can never trust magic…"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 369809

"W-Well… I hope you do what is r-right then."

Nock [Tracker] 369811

DM 369812

I believe your last action was with Lime and his stone.
But if you wish to begin balls deep in waifu, be my guest.
"Nh… yeah… just keep it slow for now, ok~?"
All set for the Gala?
Cherry, being a whore, offered to bang three dudes in the training field. She is currently preparing to have her band of friends beat the shit out of them.
Everyone should be ready for the Gala because we are warping there once that is over.
Did you just pull a real sword on academy grounds?

Lime Rock [Shaman] 369813

I draw my mace as well
"Look at us, do you really want to do this? Have you three fallen so low?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 369814

Well, aren't we in the training grounds?

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 369816

Aside from learning how to dance, I suppose so.

Sidus [Rogue] 369817

That was a joke!
I was inquiring if there's anything else to do in the meantime before skipping to the Gala!
Like sneaking around in that black outfit to explore places where I shouldn't be

Nock [Tracker] 369819

For real though, that whore straight crept.

Well, I don't want to delay us by starting a new subplot. I'll wait like a good girl for the gala.

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369820

Are they attacking or what?

Papaver Field [Mage] 369821

Or we could say I invited you too to out hunting session.

Nock [Tracker] 369822

I don't want to bog down the conversation since I came in late. I'll be patient.

Papaver Field [Mage] 369825

Considering Leaf is here, yeah, it might be a problem.

DM 369830

There is a rule about this…
You have a long list of off-limits places if you want to explore
"S-Sidus? Why'd you stop?"
They are kinda trying to piece together a plan
One backs off
"Forget this. You ponies are fucking mad."
The two others stand their ground

Papaver Field [Mage] 369831

Oh well, looks like we won't need to break any rule!
"Well that was easy…"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 369833

Last I recall, I was on the training field with Shield Wall. There's no chance of something drawing me over to the other group, is there?

Lime Rock [Shaman] 369834

"And you two? Still looking for trouble or will you back down?"

Sidus [Rogue] 369835

One of them was the dungeons, right?

DM 369836

Just go there if you want.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 369838

Maybe I should just leave him be…
Which means I'm ready for the gala whenever.

DM 369840

"Trouble? Us? We're not the ones trying to assault fellow cadets."
"You are breaking so many rules…"
Leaf snorts
[Areas that are off-limits
First Year: Lethal Weapon Storage / Advanced Combat Arts Study Material / Forge / Magic Training Range (without supervision) / Any below
Second Year: Reliquary / Bestiary / Dark Arts Study Material / Any Below
Third Year: Sanctum / Proving Halls / Dungeon / Any Below
Fourth Year and beyond: Faculty Only areas
FACULTY ONLY: Faculty lounge / Relic Library / Underhalls / Teaching Materials / Catacombs / Supply Closet / Faculty Bathrooms
Entering restricted areas will result in disciplinary action]

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 369841

Then I guess I will. It is rather odd to see a group of ponies I know standing threateningly around two guys.
"Hey, Vera, what exactly is going on here?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 369842

"And you are accepting sexual favors. Actually, you are requesting them now.
That's one hell of a rule violation."

DM 369845

"Nothing about that in the rules"
"It's all good so long as nobody gets a foal"

Sidus [Rogue] 369846

Well, can I still into sneaking?

Roll #1 9 = 9

Lime Rock [Shaman] 369847

I roll my eyes
"What do you think the princesses would look down more on? Sneaking around in a colt's dorm or exploiting a mare? Rules or not, you three acted like scumbags."

Papaver Field [Mage] 369849

"If she doesn't want to anymore and you force her, it's a big, big rule violetion.
Something called rape, I heard…"
Narrow my eyes at them and step forward.

Papaver Field [Mage] 369850

Ignore him, I'm in a staredown contest.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 369854

I'll look at Leaf.
"Mind filling me in?"

DM 369857

Seems so.
Any plans where to head to?
"The first being a perverse violation of rules"
"The second simply clean and natural"
"Cadet Merry seems to have offered this lot some favors in exchange for not telling the faculty she was creeping around Sword Dorm last night."
"It was her idea"

Sidus [Rogue] 369859

Hmm, take one of Balsa's maps with me.
Where were he exploring again?

Papaver Field [Mage] 369860

"And now she is saying NO."
Grunt at him as I keep staring them down.

Lime Rock [Shaman] 369861

I glower
"You two have some nerve. The mare says no, so what will you do now?"

DM 369863

His notes mention there is a way into the dungeon somewhere beyond the bestiary, which is in the basement, and has a second exit in the walled-off area of the yard.
"Seems the deal is off then"
"We'll go make a report to the battlemaster"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 369864

I'll sigh.
Why are all of Star's friends so intent on getting into the Sword Dorm?
I'll turn to the two they're talking to, but still talk to Leaf.
"So I take it she promised them a bit more than kiss or two."

Sidus [Rogue] 369865

Let's do a little exploration in the basement then!

DM 369867

"I do believe so. But ask her if you want details."
You know one entrance to the basement lies past the Custodian's room.

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369868

"No you don't. Forget about it."
WoP '1d10'

Roll #1 1 = 1

DM 369871

"We'll report you to the Headmaster then"
They turn to leave for the main building

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 369872

"And now she's trying to get out of it. These two have a very good reason to get upset. Breaking your word is one of the worst things a paladin can do."

Papaver Field [Mage] 369874

Well. Fuck.
"Okay. Anypony has ideas?"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 369875

"Well, she could always apologize, and maybe meet them halfway. And if they're really dead set on getting their…"
I'll clear my throat.
"On fulfilling that part of the deal, you can just throw them at nurse Steamship. I'm sure she'd take great care of them."

Lime Rock [Shaman] 369877

"So is exploiting mares, Jonagold. Pressuring them into admitting things they don't want to is worse than anything else."

I shrug
"Let them be. They'll get in trouble if they tell on her as well."

Sidus [Rogue] 369878

Sneak past there then!

Papaver Field [Mage] 369879

"I'm so gonna paint the wall with them!"
"You think?"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369880

I take a look at all of them.
"I'll tell the Headmaster myself."
Gallop to the main building.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 369881

"I'm not saying that that isn't bad."
"And then you'd just be a thug instead of a paladin, Vera."
I'll watch her go.
That, however, was probably the best solution.

Papaver Field [Mage] 369882

Roll my eyes and follow her.

Lime Rock [Shaman] 369883

Ah crap. follow her.

DM 369884

You catch up to them rather quickly
"…where you going?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 369885

As we gallop past them, stick out my tongue and be off.

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369886

Ignore them and keep running.

Sidus [Rogue] 369888

DM 369891

You sneak past the Custodian's door and reach the basement door.
It is locked.
They mostly seem confused.
You can beat them to the main building.

Papaver Field [Mage] 369894

Well of course. Keep up Cherry's pace and follow her.

Sidus [Rogue] 369895

Time to put the Master Key to the test!

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369898

I go in the main building and look for the Headmasters office.

DM 369901

Success! It indeed does open this door.
The office is in the top floor, as always.
His assistant stops you
"What business, cadets?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 369902

"We have to denounce ourselves!"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369904

"I need to speak with the Headmaster."
I gulp.
"I violated the rules and I want to confess."

Sidus [Rogue] 369907

Too easy!
Enter, lock the door behind me, and start going dooooown

Lime Rock [Shaman] 369908

I'll just keep quiet and stand with them

DM 369910

She gets up without a word and goes knock on the office's door.
She goes in.
The guys are catching up.
It is quite dark down here.
A few lanterns are on the wall, but they are not lit.
It also really, really stinks.

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369911

"This is just me, Vera.
It's my fault and I'll take responsibility for it.
I didn't want any of you to get involved with this."

Sidus [Rogue] 369912

Let's just let my eyes get used to the dark for now.

Papaver Field [Mage] 369918

"Hey, I snuck around too!"

Aleister [Thaumaturge] 369922

"But I got caught, you didn't.
You still need to do things here.
This is my fault and I did the wrong thing by trying to get out of it…"
Turn to Vera.
"Vera, please. I'll be happy to know all of you didn't have to pay for my mistakes.
And you need to be here so you can teach Star to sing….while…while I'm away…"

DM 369923

Soon your vision adjusts.
This is a staircase, wide enough for three ponies. At the bottom, you can see light and hear movement.
The boys catch up
"Oh wow you weren't kidding"

Papaver Field [Mage] 369927

"Yeah. And we are going through with it!"

Lime Rock [Shaman] 369928

"Come on Cherry, it won't be that bad. We're here to support you either way."

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369929

I don't know what just happened with the name there.

"Just go."

Sidus [Rogue] 369930

Okay, start sneaking down to get closer and see what's that bout.

Papaver Field [Mage] 369931

"Don't be stupid. We are friends, we stick together! Maybe the punishment will be less severe if it's for two instead of one!"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369932

"But you don't have anything to do with it!"

Papaver Field [Mage] 369934

"Now I do. Too bad!"
Smile at her.

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369936

"But what about what you need to do…
Even if we don't get expelled, they won't give us a second chance.
I'm doing this so neither you or Leaf or Lime or anypony but me gets the blame for something I did.
Don't do this."

DM 369938

Once you reach the bottom and look in, you can see this is a large underground hall. Almost as big as the great hall, but not as wide.
It is full of various cages and pens, each housing strange, dangerous looking monsters.
Several ponies are here too, feeding and grooming them.

Roll #1 6 = 6

DM 369939


Roll #1 6 - 1 = 5

Papaver Field [Mage] 369940

"Yeah, about that. I promised Nock to quit."

DM 369944

They look at eachother, then nod
"We're glad you saw the error of your ways"
"You're brave girls. Take care, ok? …would be a shame to see someone so nice get expelled."
They then leave peacefully

Lime Rock [Shaman] 369945

I mutter under my breath

Papaver Field [Mage] 369946

Look at them in surprise for a moment, then blink a few time.
Then look across at Cherry with a blank stare.

Sidus [Rogue] 369947

Wait for a bit, and see if I can spot any safe routes to sneak in further.

Roll #1 10 = 10

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369948

Just shrug my shoulders

"That doesn't mean you should go down with me…"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369949

"And what about Nock?
If we get expelled, you might never see her again."

Papaver Field [Mage] 369950

"We should leave…"

Lime Rock [Shaman] 369952

"Too little too late for that, I think."

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369953

"I already told her I violated a rule.
I won't make it worse now."
Give a little push to Vera.
"But you should go now."

DM 369955

Some of the monsters clearly don't like light, so there are some notable dark spots. Moving between them will let you explore the entire room undetected.

The assistant returns
"The headmaster will see you now. Only those who have something to confess should go."

Papaver Field [Mage] 369957

Sigh and step closer.
"I'm not leaving."
Stand tall and walk in.
"You guys wait for me outside!"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369959

Before I go in, I say to Vera.
"Just say goodbye to the others for me.
I'll be fine whatever happens. I promise."
Go in.

Lime Rock [Shaman] 369960

Well, I guess I'll wait then.
I pat both Papaver's and Cherry's backs
"Good luck girls."

Papaver Field [Mage] 369962

"Ush! You did nothing, I have something to confess, not you!"
Give her a wink.

Sidus [Rogue] 369963

Use those dark spots and explore then, take my time, not rushing or risking getting discovered

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369964

I smile at him.
"Thanks, Lime."

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369965

"I'll do what a real paladin would do.
For once."

Papaver Field [Mage] 369966

Roll my eyes.
"Wait here damnit!"

DM 369967

He headmaster sits silently behind his table
"I offer you a chance to explain."

Papaver Field [Mage] 369968

"Sir, I did suggest cadet Cherry the idea, it is my fault."

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369970

I try to keep strong.
"Headmaster, last night I went into Sword dorm without permission."

DM 369974

"And for what purpose was that?"

Sidus [Rogue] 369975

Papaver Field [Mage] 369976

"We were trying to sneak in the room of a pair of stallions we like."

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369978

Look down.
"I wanted to see the boys.
But it was wrong of me to do that."

DM 369985

All kinds of crazy shit down here… a manticore… a small hydra… a rather dull looking young dragon… a chimera… something you can't even name…
Must be for advanced combat practice purposes.
He raises a bushy eyebrow
"…understandable. If not entirely acceptable.
Then, I suppose it is only nature trying to do what is natural.
You two do know the rule about not having foals, right?"

Sidus [Rogue] 369986

Hmm, I'll keep this in mind…
Any exits from here?

Papaver Field [Mage] 369987

"Sir, yes sir. I'm here to become a paladin, not start a family."

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369988

I look up at the Headmaster, a little sparkle of hope in my eyes.
"Yes, I know the rule."

DM 369989

One where you came in, another, larger one up a ramp. It probably leads to the walled off yard.
There are also gutters for removing waste. And shit.
"Then I trust you were at least carrying protection with you while on you mission to do what ponies your age tend to wish to do?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 369990

Widen my eyes in shock.
"Sir, I would never go that far!"

Sidus [Rogue] 369992

No, I probably don't want to go in the gutters…
But if the basement only consists of this Bestiary…

Cherry Merry [Bard] 369993

"We weren't going to let it go that far."

DM 369997

"The mind can often find itself a plaything of the body. Remember, you'd rather have them and not need them, than need them and not have them.
Now. Do you both understand why these rules are in place? Why we have separate dorms?"
Explore more?

Papaver Field [Mage] 369999

Look around awkwardly.
"Uh… So ponies will focus on training?"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370001

Nod at Vera.
"I think so too."

Sidus [Rogue] 370002

DM 370004

And did it help you focus?"
There is a storage room tucked off to the side, and a small office of sorts, probably for keeping stock without needing to run up the stairs.

Papaver Field [Mage] 370007

"Sir, yes sir!"
Answer with a big, bright smile.
"I've learnt so much in this year, sir!"

Sidus [Rogue] 370008

Sneak closer to there using the dark shadow patterns I discovered earlier.
I don't suppose it has windows?

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370015

I'm ready to warp forward, unless Star wants to practice dancing.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 370017

Sure, I'm just waiting anyway!

Papaver Field [Mage] 370018

Yeah this too.

DM 370019

The office is just a side room with good lighting so you can see what you write.
The storage seems to have various sorts of food.
…including meat.
"Then what drew you to sneaking about?"

Nock [Tracker] 370021

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370022

So, in the secret room…
"Okay, Star, since I have literally no clue how a pony dances in a fancy setting, I got a pair of books to help. I figure we'll start with the easy one, and once we've got that one, we'll go on to the harder one."

Sidus [Rogue] 370024

…I wonder where that comes from…
Anything interesting I can see in the office, or do I need to nudge the door open?

Roll #1 6 = 6

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370025

"I did learn how to wield a hammer properly."
I say.

"Because…the training wasn't the only thing I paid attention too." I say with a blush.


"W-well… I can't exactly be close to him during the day…"
Think about Nock.
Think about her.
Blush like you mean it!

Roll #1 7 = 7

Star Hopper [Cleric] 370028

I cock my head
"Huh? D-Dancing? For the Gala?"

DM 370030

There is a shelf full of various ledgers, and one open on the table.
"So it was just you following natural urges then?"

Sidus [Rogue] 370031

Anypony around the office?

DM 370032

Just the books, the lamps, and a quill for writing.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370033

"Well, yeah. You don't just expect us to stand around all night, do you? That'd give us away."
I'll shuffle my hooves.
"Besides… it's not every night you can take the mare you like to the Grand Galloping Gala and dance with her."

Sidus [Rogue] 370037

Levitate a book over to me then.
Give it a quick read.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 370038

I blush
"N-No… that's t-true…"
Biting my lower lip, I take a look at the books
"Oh dear…"

Papaver Field [Mage] 370039

"N-no sir! Training is always a priority!"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370041

"I guess so." I say with a blush.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370043

"Don't worry! I got this one here, since the Eggheads Guide series hasn't steered me wrong before. That's what we'll start with."
I'll scratch my nose a little.
"Unless you happen to have a surprising knowledge of ballroom dancing tucked away?"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 370045

I shake my head
"N-Nopony has ever asked me to dance with them b-before…"

DM 370048

"And you two honestly had nothing worse in mind than sating your bodily needs?"
[-Received shipment of vegetables
-Received shipment of oats
-Low on meat, place order for more
–Order placed
-Gutter clogged up again. Ask for cleanup
–Gutter checked, blockage not on our end
–-Inform Custodian, request cleanup crew to check sewer
––request filed
-Chimera needs corn filing]

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370049

"Well, then there's no time like the present to learn. So, let's give it a look-over, and then practice."
I'll sit next to Star, crack open the beginner's book, and we'll start from the top.

Sidus [Rogue] 370051

Maybe there's actually something up with that gutter…
I hope the custodian keeps track of his work too in a ledger like this.
Read a bit more.

Papaver Field [Mage] 370052

Fiddle with my hooves.
"W-well, sir… I was still worried about… That…"
Look up and start talking faster, in a hurry.
"But it's just in the back of my mind sir! Absolutely nothing of importance! Just an afterthought!"


I nod and shuffle a little closer to him, wrapping my tail around his and blushing as I do so.
Let's get reading.

Roll #1 6 = 6

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370059

Take a curious glance at Vera.

DM 370062

You turn to some older entries
[-Cockatrice pen needs de-stoning
–Removed petrified rats
-Begun construction of Chupacapra pen
–Completed construction
–-Moved Jackalope warren away from pen
-Placed order for air fresheners]
[-A dance starts with a stance. Bow to your partner, and assume the starting position. His hoof on her waist, hers on his shoulder-]
"Now, Cadets, I ask you this: Do you feel this sort of behavior will continue, and if it does, will it reflect poorly on the learning of any party involved?"

Sidus [Rogue] 370065

Okay, this is sort of interesting, read just a bit more older entries.

Papaver Field [Mage] 370067

Shake my head.
"Sir, no sir.
We won't let our grades slip!"
Hey, me and Nock didn't put training on the backburner after all.
"And I could never respect a partner who placed affection over honor, sir."

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370070

"My training comes first.
Over anything."

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370072

Well, that's not going to be awkward at all.
"So, how do we want to practice this, Star? Stop at each part and make sure we've got it right, or try and go through the whole thing all at once?"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 370073

"Uh… you decide… I don't know what w-would be the b-best way…"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370075

I'll think for a second.
"Well, let's run through the book once, and then go through it step by step after we finish reading. That way, we won't have to look back at it every other minute."

Star Hopper [Cleric] 370077

I nod
"Okay. You're r-right."

DM 370080

[-Manticore needs wing massage
–Gave one, it was pleased
-Cockatrice laid eggs, is ignoring them
–Eggs put into storage
-Low on meat, placing order
–order delivered
-Low on carrots, placing order
–order delivered]
"Very good.
I see you understand why the rules are in place, know them, and respect them.
I am willing to pardon you this time, provided you do not hinder anypony's training here in the future. Understood?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 370081

Nod eagerly and excuse me as soon as possible.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370082

And then we'll keep reading.
'1d10' to retain the information.

Roll #1 9 = 9

Sidus [Rogue] 370083

Not much more of interest.
Put the book back, sneak back out of the basement.


Right! Absorb these techniques!

Roll #1 1 = 1

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370086

I salute.
"Understood, sir."

DM 370093

[-He starts with the right, she with the left.-]
There is a big picture explaining the position and steps, including the mare bending backwards in his hooves.
You exit the basement as silently as you entered

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370094

How would the mare bend like that, anyway? Doesn't seem to comfortable…
And we'll keep on reading.

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370095

As I leave the office and go out the building with Vera,
I turn to her.
"Thanks for sticking with me."

Papaver Field [Mage] 370096

And I guess we are ready for the gala on this front.
Trotting back to the room…
"That was close!"

Papaver Field [Mage] 370097

Wave a hoof away dismissively.

Lime Rock [Shaman] 370099

I cock my head as they leave.
"… So?"

Sidus [Rogue] 370100

Let's sneak closer to the custodian's office now.
Any noises I can hear from inside?

Star Hopper [Cleric] 370101

I scratch my head as I see the pose but keeping reading anyway

Papaver Field [Mage] 370102

"All went well!"
Smile at him.

Lime Rock [Shaman] 370103

I smirk
"I knew you'd be fine. Getting mad about this kind of stuff is stupid anyway."

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370105

"Close one indeed."
I sigh.
"It was my fault. I promise, I'll never get you in trouble again."

"It went okay." I say with a smile.

DM 370106

From the sound of it he is reading.
You can hear pages being turned.
[-It is important to remember which hoof goes where, so nobody gets stepped on or falls.
Depending on the style of dance, different steps may be needed, but in most situations, the basic waltz will do.-]

Star Hopper [Cleric] 370108

I nod and read on

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370110

Basic waltz is fine. Let's memorize the hoofwork. '1d10'

Roll #1 6 = 6

Papaver Field [Mage] 370111

"We should stop this…"

Lime Rock [Shaman] 370113

I laugh
"Ponies tend to get in trouble sometimes, even if they don't intend to. No real way of avoiding that."

Sidus [Rogue] 370114

Make a bit of a distance away from there.

DM 370120

It seems simple enough. Forth-back-forth/turn, repeat. An easy three count.

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370123

"You're right…"

"True. But that doesn't mean I should look for it."
Look down.
"Or drag my friends in with it."

Star Hopper [Cleric] 370124

"This d-doesn't look too a-awful…"

Sidus [Rogue] 370130

"I have a task for you."

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370131

"No, not too bad at all."
I'll nod a little.
"Alright, so, you ready to practice?"

DM 370132

"Do tell."

Lime Rock [Shaman] 370134

I shrug
"That's life. Those thugs were wrong to ask favors of you."

Star Hopper [Cleric] 370136

I blush and nod sheepishly
"Y-Yes… I just hope I-I don't mess it up for y-you…"

Papaver Field [Mage] 370141

"Well at least it's over."
Look at Cherry, then at Lime.
"Say, you two already have a date for the Gala?"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370143

"I'm more worried about me stepping on your hooves…"
Alright, and I'll assume the position.
Face your partner, bow, hoof on her waist, hers on my shoulder…
Let's see if I put my hoof in the right place. '1d10'

Roll #1 2 = 2

Sidus [Rogue] 370144

"I need you to lure the custodian away from his office with something…"
I think for a second.
"Maybe you could break a pipe at one of the drinking fountains and then report it to him. Make sure nopony sees you doing so, though. You should seem innocent. If that is too risky, you can try one of the restrooms, that's more out of sight. Are you up for it?"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370146

the "you're right'" was meant for you.
"Uh….no?" Take a glance at Lime.

Papaver Field [Mage] 370152

I guessed as much sugar.
Look expetandly at Lime now.

DM 370154

How lewd
"Anything you need~
Give me a minute."

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370156

And I'll quickly pull my hoof away.
"I'm sorry!"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 370157

I'll blush as red as a tomato now
"Y-You could have just t-told me you were ready to m-move further…"

Sidus [Rogue] 370161

Give her a kiss on the cheek.
"Go get 'em girl!"

Tela [Spellsword] 370163

I shake my head
"Not yet."

"Oh… hey yeah! That's a good idea! Cherry, do you want to me my date for the grand galloping gala?"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370167

"T-that's not it! I just… I just missed. I'm sorry. I've never danced like this before, so I don't quite know where everything goes yet."
I'll be blushing terribly.
"I'll do it right next time."

DM 370168

After about two minutes, she returns
"Well… that should do it. Should you go out of sight while I report it, or?"

Sidus [Rogue] 370171

Yes, I should.
Can I find a place to hide nearby?

Roll #1 4 = 4

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370172

"I'd love to."
I say with a smile.

Papaver Field [Mage] 370175

Smile at both of them.
"I'm sure you will have loads of fun!"

Tela [Spellsword] 370179

I grin back
"Alright, this should be interesting to see. Can't wait!"

Lime Rock [Shaman] 370180

Star Hopper [Cleric] 370182

"Oh… okay then…"

DM 370184

It's a small corridor. Nowhere to go around here really.

Papaver Field [Mage] 370186

something something gala?

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370189

"It's not that I don't want to, Star, but I also don't want to rush."
I'll blush a little.
"But that's going to be something we talk about later. For now, let's get back to dance practice."
And then we assume the position. '1d10'

Roll #1 5 = 5

Sidus [Rogue] 370190

If I open the basement door, and leave it open ever so slightly, will I be able to see when Burning lures him away?

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370191

Smile at Vera. Thanks.

Roll not to squee '1d10'

Oh yes precious~

Roll #1 6 = 6


I sigh and assume position as well

Roll #1 1 = 1

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370202


I scrunch.
"I can't wait to see you there."

Lime Rock [Shaman] 370207

I nod
"It's going to be so much more fun with another artist around."

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370219

Play a little with my mane.
"About that…when will I get to see you at work?"

DM 370222

I think you got your books mixed up there buddy.
…why does his equipment feel so… tiny?
As soon as Sidus and Star are done
That should work.
You creep in and Burning knocks on the Custodian's door
"The toilets are clogged and overflowing everywhere."
"Oh for fucks sakes."
You see him head out with a tool bag in tow

Papaver Field [Mage] 370224

Sooo… Leaf. Go back and find him.
"Thanks for standing with us, back there."

Sidus [Rogue] 370227

Okay, rush there.
Is the door open or do I need to use the key?

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370228

I'll immediately back off, blushing terribly.
"I-I guess I'm the one dragging my hooves on this."

Lime Rock [Shaman] 370231

"Sidus already got me some materials to work with, so any time."
I rub the back of my neck sheepishly
"I didn't really do so well at first though… guess I'm just a little out of practice, y'know?"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 370232

I blush as well
"S-Sorry! I don't k-know why I did t-that!"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370236

"Maybe I can…play a little song to inspire you while you work?"

DM 370240

"My pleasure. I suppose that had something to do with Balsa?"
You quickly pop the door open with the key.
Welcome to the Custodian's room.

Lime Rock [Shaman] 370241

I smile at her
"That would be awfully kind of you."

Sidus [Rogue] 370243

Quickly look for a ledger.
Don't move further in though, I know there are traps in here.

Papaver Field [Mage] 370244

"Cherry wanted to come with us and I just couldn't say no. But she got caught, just like I did.
Only, she didn't have anypony to get her out of danger."

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370246

I've got a guess.
"L-let's give the stance one more try. We haven't even gotten to the hard part yet."

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370247

"Off we go then."
I say with a smile.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 370250

I blush even redder as he says the last part but nod
"R-Right… sorry…"

DM 370251

There are some in his bookshelf
"Speaking of anypony…
…I hope there wasn't any fallout over the kiss."

Papaver Field [Mage] 370254

"I will stop pursuing the Collection. Oh, and she tried to jump off the roof."

Lime Rock [Shaman] 370255

"Right… I just don't know where. I mean we can't go to my room where I got my stuff set up if you want to join… Is there like an art section or rooms or something in this academy?"

Sidus [Rogue] 370256

Levitate them over.
See if there's anything about the gutter of the Beastiary.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370258

"It's… it's okay, but we'll get there when we get there."
And then I'll get back into the dancing stance. Hoof on her waist, and nowhere else. '1d10'

Roll #1 9 = 9


Do the same. Keep it the fuck clean.

Roll #1 9 = 9

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370264

"Well go get your stuff and I'll look for one."

There's one right DM?

Roll #1 8 = 8

DM 370276

He looks shocked
"…no. That's… terrible!"
[Asked to fix the fucking gutter again
The gutter is probably fine
Need to check the sewer. Might be a blockage there.
This would be less of a problem if they let me install a bigger drainage pipe in the dungeon…]
There is an art classroom, and an art supply storage room.

Papaver Field [Mage] 370280

Sigh and move closer.
"We made up thou. And now she finally agreed to tell her father…"

Sidus [Rogue] 370283

Read a bit more, there must be more, maybe his solution, and what caused it?
It might also be a way, using the sewers to get around and get to the Collection!

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370287

Alright. Perfect stance. Now, the back forward back. Simple waltz. I know the steps. Lead the dance, and don't trip. '1d10'

Roll #1 4 = 4

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370289

Right, while Lime goes to get his supplies, I quickly go to the field to Leaf.

DM 370291

"And… you really will forsake searching for the Collection?"
An old entry reads
[Blocked off the old sewer drainage to the sub basement after it was used in an escape attempt. I warned them a smaller one will just lead to constant blockages. They did not care. Oh well. One day they'll get fed up and let me open it again, so might as well leave it easily demolishable.]
Looks like he is talking with Vera.

Papaver Field [Mage] 370297

"Yeah, I promised her. She asked me to show her she was more important than my demons…"


I try to keep up and maybe even do better

Roll #1 3 = 3

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370299

I go up to them.
"Excuse me…"

Sidus [Rogue] 370300

That's enough for now.
Put the ledger back and leave.

Lime Rock [Shaman] 370301

Right, go get my gear and move it to the art room!

DM 370323

As you walk off, you see the custodian walk back. He looks like he got his hooves quite soaked. He also looks annoyed.
Smooth like gravel.
Seems like the art teacher is taking a break

Sidus [Rogue] 370328

We all have to make sacrifices…
To the hammer dorm, into Burning's room!

Lime Rock [Shaman] 370331

Well… I'm sure he or she wont mind if I set up my stuff here.
Anyone else around?

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370332

I'll grimace little.
"Sorry. I think I might have gotten the steps backwards…"
Forward-back-forward, not the other way…
I can lead this. I know the steps, after all. '1d10'

Roll #1 1 = 1

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370333

Smile at him.
"I just wanted to say thanks for helping me."

Papaver Field [Mage] 370335

DM 370347

"…is she?"
fall over
land on her
"Good day Cadet. Don't mind me, I'm just having my tea."
"My pleasure Cherry."
…amazingly, you beat her there.
Want to search around?

Star Hopper [Cleric] 370349

I whimper as he falls on top of me

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370351

Oh no!
I'll get off her.
"Star, are you alright?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 370352

Frown at him.
"Of course she is, damnit!"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 370353

I nod weakly
"Y-Yeah… I'm not r-really good at dancing… sorry…"

Sidus [Rogue] 370354

That wouldn't be very chivalrous…
Innocently looking around though, that's a possibility.

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370355

"I've got to go now."

Look at Vera
"Lim is going to show me his sculpting."
Roll not to squee.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370357

I'll shake my head.
"No, that was my fault. I leaned you too far."
I'll frown a little.
"Why don't you try leading?"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370359

And I forgot to roll. '1d10'

Roll #1 10 = 10

Lime Rock [Shaman] 370360

Who said that?

Papaver Field [Mage] 370361

Chuckle a bit.
"It was easy in the end, no?"


I nod and get up
"O-Okay… I'll try…"
Try to take the lead this time, blushing heavily

Roll #1 2 = 2

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370365

I'll squee just a little bit.

I nod happily and trot away
"Bye Leaf, bye Vera, see you later."

Go to the art class.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370366

And I'll follow, compensating where I need to. '1d10'

Roll #1 10 = 10

DM 370369

"I just… needed to hear that straight."
You can see a letter poking out from her drawer.
The art teacher.
She is having her break in there.
Finally, like a true stallion, Jon takes a firm, confident lead.
He even gets the steps right!

Sidus [Rogue] 370371

A little look won't hurt…

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370373

There, perfect.
"Well, that wasn't so bad! I think we've got the hang of this."

Lime Rock [Shaman] 370376

"Oh, hello there miss…?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 370377

"Yeah, right. I should go."
And off I go somewhere, unable to ask him about what really plagued me because he thinks with his dick.

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370379

I'm going to the art class now.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 370381

I nod, still blushing
"Y-You're really good at t-this…"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370385

I'll blush too.
"Well, it's only following directions. Nothing at all like dancing back on the farm, but once you get the rhythm down, it's not too bad."
I'll scratch my nose.
"And, well, I've got a partner worth getting it right for."

Nock [Tracker] 370387

We could always chat! Looks like the Gala isn't happening after all.

DM 370392

[Dear Burning
Your father and I wish to know how your studies are going.
While we regret your choice to attend the academy rather than pursue a family, we respect your decision and will not carry a grudge over it–-]
There is more, but you'd need to take the letter out of the drawer.
"Memorial. Art teacher.
And you are?"
That seems to just be the conclusion you draw from him.
It would if everyone got their shit ready

Star Hopper [Cleric] 370393

I smile at him

Papaver Field [Mage] 370394

Well what do you know.
And I think "…It's time, Nock."
Stand tall in front of her, looking with a grave expression.
Correction. The conclusion this almost raped, once sheltered young mare takes from him.

Sidus [Rogue] 370397

Levitate it out carefully.

Lime Rock [Shaman] 370398

"Cadet Lime Rock, miss. I'm a bit of a sculptor, so I figured I could set up shop here and work on a commission."

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370399

I'll smile a little as well.
Though if she's getting ready for that particular step, I really need to hurry and get that problem taken care of.
"So, should we practice a little longer, or do you think we should be ready?"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 370404

"As l-long as you're there t-to lead me… I can do a-anything."
I blush a little
"And n-not just with d-dancing… You r-really make me feel… better…"

Nock [Tracker] 370407

I look up from my books, laying on my bed. "Oh, Vera, you're back. Time for what, dinner? I'm starved. I hear they've got good stuff today, too. Rumors of samples from the Gala catering. I bet Star's gorging herself right now."

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370409

I guess I'll have arrived by this time too.
Go in the classroom.


Conjure a rope.

Roll #1 2 + 2 = 4

Lime Rock [Shaman] 370412

I smile at her as she enters
"… and then there was a musician in the house as well. Hey Cherry!"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370413

I'll blush a little at that.
"You're giving me too much credit."
I'll pull her into a side-hug.
"If anything, you're the one making me better."

Papaver Field [Mage] 370415

Oh well.
Run over to her and grab her by the ear.
"No. Time we tell your father we are together."
Look at her with a stern glare.

Roll #1 5 = 5

Star Hopper [Cleric] 370416

I shake my head
"I'm r-really nothing w-without you… I feel l-like I'm really m-making progress in my life now… g-getting stronger…"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370420

"Hey." Smile at him.
As I see the teacher,
"Good day, miss.
I hope we didn't disturb you?"

DM 370423

"Certainly. This room goes unused a lot of the time anyway. Not many serious artists around here, and most of those few are musicians."
[–-we wish you do come visit us again some day. There is something we need to talk about, when you feel ready.
Perhaps it would help you understand our situation better.

Love: Mourning Glory & Goldentail / Mom & Dad]

Nock [Tracker] 370426

Sigh. "Maybe I should do this alone. You aren't very diplomatic, Vera. I would like him to know, but I would also like him to not murder you."

Sidus [Rogue] 370428

Put it back in the drawer.

Papaver Field [Mage] 370429

Try to stand tall and don't waver.

Roll #1 7 = 7

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370430

I'll give her a soft headbutt.
"That's poppycock. Without me, you'd be getting just as strong, just as skilled. You'd still have Vera, Nock, Sidus… everyone."
I'll place a small kiss on her forehead.
"I'm just a bonus. If you didn't have that strength inside you, you wouldn't be doing as well as you are."

Papaver Field [Mage] 370431

"No deal. I will be by your side when you do. Otherwise, what would he think of me?"

DM 370434

"Not at all. Not at all."

Lime Rock [Shaman] 370435

"Ah… that's a shame to hear."
I look at the granite slab
"Now… let's see how I can fix this…"
Try to undo the fuckups I've made '1d10'

Roll #1 1 = 1

Nock [Tracker] 370436

"I'd rather him think you a coward than a heretic trying to brainwash his daughter. And there's good evidence for that, by the way. I've compromised with you many times. Can't you just give this once and let me settle this as a family matter?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 370438

Frown hard at her.
"I will be outside the door…"
Then, melt my expression and hug her.

Roll #1 6 + 2 = 8

Star Hopper [Cleric] 370440

I nod slowly and keep blushing
"I still w-wouldn't nearly be as m-much without y-you… You're everything t-to me…"

Sidus [Rogue] 370441

Turn around.
"Oh, hey there. You did well!"

Nock [Tracker] 370445

Accept it.

"Okay. I can compromise on that."

Lime Rock [Shaman] 370449

I groan
"You're kidding me…"

Papaver Field [Mage] 370450

Silently keep hugging her tight.
"I think I l-"
Nah. Shut up. Bite my own tongue to silence myself.
Let her go.
"W-we should go."

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370452

"And you are more important to me than my own life."
But that doesn't mean I don't want you to make your own decisions.
And I guess I'll keep hugging her for a while.

Nock [Tracker] 370453

"Vera? What was it?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 370454

Shake my head firmly.
"I will tell you later, once this is dealt with."

Nock [Tracker] 370455

"Alright." Give one last squeeze and off we go.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 370456

Eventually, I break off of the hug.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370458

I'll look at her a little curiously.
"What's the matter?"

DM 370459

…what were you looking at?"
His office is where it was before.
You know the way.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 370460

I blink as I break out of my stupor
"N-Nothing! uh… l-let's practice some m-more!"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370462

Go over to him.
"Just try it again. I'm sure you can do it."
Smile at him.

Lime Rock [Shaman] 370463

Papaver Field [Mage] 370464

I guess I just gotta wait out of the door now…

Sidus [Rogue] 370465

"Nothing, something just caught my eye."

Nock [Tracker] 370466

Nock knocks.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370467

"Are you sure?"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 370471

I nod eagerly

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370473

Then practice we shall. Dancing '1d10'

Roll #1 8 = 8


Try to keep up with him!

Roll #1 9 = 9

DM 370482

It's ruined.
At best you could make it into some sort of nasty mockery or parody.
Nock nock
Who's there
Nock who
Nock nock
Who's there
ha ha recursion

Sidus [Rogue] 370484

Hop on her bed.
"Just a letter you got… I hope you don't mind."

Lime Rock [Shaman] 370485

I sit back on my flank
"… Damn it."
I groan
"It's RUINED!"

DM 370489

She looks a little surprised, then quickly shoves the letter back in the drawer
"…lets just… forget that for now."
The teacher gives it a glance
"Yep. That's ruined alright. Chip it smooth and start over."

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370490

Take his hoof.
"You can try again.
Accidents happen."

Sidus [Rogue] 370491

I sigh.
"Burning, you can't sweep all your problems under the rug. Want to talk about it?"

Nock [Tracker] 370493

I enter and close the door behind me. "Father?"

Lime Rock [Shaman] 370495

I sigh
"You wouldn't happen to have any better materials, would you? Granite is… annoying to work with."

I smile as she takes my hoof
"You're right… I just wish I didn't make them so often… I must look like a total tool right now."

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370498

Wave my hoof dismissively.
"That's what art is about ,silly.
You practice and practice and sometimes it still doesn't come out right."

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370500

And so we dance merrily for a while.
However, all good things must come to an end.
"Well, I dare say we've got the steps down, Star."

DM 370507

"Yes, Nocky?"
She sits down on her bed
"I guess my past really wants to haunt me…"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 370510

I nod
"I think s-so too… hopefully I w-wont embarrass you at the G-Gala now…"

Sidus [Rogue] 370511

Caress her back with a hoof.

Lime Rock [Shaman] 370515

"Yeah… I know. Maybe I've just been to patient and confident in myself…"


Nock [Tracker] 370517

I have a seat in his room. "I signed up for the guard crew at the Gala. I'm going with another earth pony, too."

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370522

I'll give a small laugh.
"I'm more worried I'll embarrass you."
Nuzzling her a little, I'll continue.
"But that's a problem we'll deal with then. Let's just try to have fun, and do our jobs at the same time. I'm sure the night will go off without a hitch."

Star Hopper [Cleric] 370525

"I-If you say so…"
I nuzzle him back, then sneak in a kiss
"I'm h-happy we get t-this chance though… the gala…"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370529

"Yeah. Never thought in my life I'd get to go."

Star Hopper [Cleric] 370532

"Mmmm~… I haven't e-even told my p-parents yet…"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370533

"You haven't? Well, I can understand not telling them about the gala, since we're supposed to be secret guards, but… you've told them about us, right?"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 370535

I blush
"Uh… n-no… I… I just d-don't know h-how to word it in a l-letter… S-Sorry…"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370536

"Just try it again.
Show that stone who's boss."

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370538

I'll shake my head.
"It's no problem, but… they do need to hear eventually."
Especially since your mom's an Inquisitor, and if she's anything like Nock is…
"Well, if we're lucky, maybe we'll run into them at the gala, and I can introduce myself."

Star Hopper [Cleric] 370540

"Oh… I-I don't t-think they'll attend…"
I rub the back of my neck sheepishly
"Uh… d-dad is forbidden to enter C-Canterlot palace a-anyway after crashing one of the g-galas a few years back… Mom w-was so angry…"
I shake my head

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370542

"That sounds like a story."
I'll chuckle a little.
"But you never know. The Princesses might be feeling lenient. Or he'll crash it again, just to say hello."

DM 370549

She puts her head on your lap
"Sidus… what if I told you I'm really a princess?"
"And what's wrong with granite? You did use water when working it, right?"
"That's nice. Always good to have a partner on a mission. You never know when things het hairy and you need backup."

Sidus [Rogue] 370553

I chuckle slightly and pet her mane.
"A princess? Do tell."

Lime Rock [Shaman] 370554

"It's just too damn solid."

"Yeah… maybe I should."
Right, let's try this again. Chip, smooth, all that stuff.

Roll #1 10 = 10

Star Hopper [Cleric] 370555

"Oh… I hope not! T-That would mean w-we would need to a-apprehend him!"
I get a little nervous at the thought

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370556

I whistle.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370557

"I'm pretty sure they'd come quietly if their daughter asked them to behave."
I'll give her a little smile.
"And besides, you've got the rest of us to back you up if they don't."

Nock [Tracker] 370558

"Certainly. We're also dating."

Star Hopper [Cleric] 370559

I frown a little
"Mom w-would never l-listen to anypony else… n-neither would d-dad really…"

DM 370560

"It's a long story… and probably just that… a story.
I really… honestly… don't know."
That's perfect.
"Now what the heck are you doing dating at the paladin academy? I sure wasn't when I was learning to be an Inquisitor."

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370561

"Well, they'd listen to you. I'm pretty sure."
I'll give her another hug.
"But, I think we should be getting going. The others might start wondering where we are. And we might miss dinner."

Sidus [Rogue] 370562

"We have the time! So go on, tell me. I'm curious now."

Lime Rock [Shaman] 370564

I smile
"Okay… calm of mind… Cherry, would you be so kind as to play me a song? If you want to, that is."

Star Hopper [Cleric] 370565

I nod
"Dinner! Right!"

Nock [Tracker] 370567

"It's not interfering with my coursework. I do need to meet ponies at some point, Father. You must have met mother somewhere. Where better to find someone with beliefs like yours like the Academy?"

DM 370568

"Well… I never met granny… but mom said she was once a queen. A queen sent to exile by her husband the king…
She says she heard this from one of the nobles in Canterlot. One… Venia of Wintersgrasp."
"Well I met your mother in the field.
But so long as you don't let it bother your studies, I suppose I can let it slide.
But as much as I do want to be a grandpa some day, that day is not yet. I'm too young to be called gramps."

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370571

"Of course, I'll try my best."
Get out my flute and play a tune.

Roll #1 8 = 8

Sidus [Rogue] 370572

I nod, still petting her mane.
"Mhhm… go on."

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370574

"I'll meet you there. Just have to drop these books off at my room, unless you want to keep reading them?"

Nock [Tracker] 370578

Give him a smile. "Don't worry about it. I promise you, I have no intentions have having foals while still at academy."

Okay, later.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 370580

"Uh… s-sure… m-might be a good idea!"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370582

I'll leave her with the Egghead's Guide, and I'll take off with the complicated one.
After Star heads to the dining hall, I'll make my way to the infirmary.

DM 370583

"Well… so… as far as I've been able to piece together…
…I'm the last of the royal line of the North.
As in… the whole north… that big empire Celestia conquered…"
"Good girl."

Star Hopper [Cleric] 370586

Guess I'll just enter stasis for a while then.

DM 370587

Welcome to the infirmary
If you are not feeling very firm, perhaps they can help

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370589

I'll look around. Is anyone here? '1d10'

Roll #1 3 = 3

Lime Rock [Shaman] 370590

I smile at her
"That sounded great, Cherry. Thanks."

Sidus [Rogue] 370591

I actually perk up at this and give her a surprised look.
"Bearing you are… you are royalty?"

Sidus [Rogue] 370596


Cherry Merry [Bard] 370597

Roll not to blush '1d10'

Roll #1 1 = 1

DM 370598

Steamship and Returning Slab are on call.
A few students are in the rest ward.
"I might be. If the story is true that is.
I just know that's what Lady Venia told mother. And what mother told me.
…do you now understand why I'm… you know… about you… and us?"
It expands well beyond your face.
No part of you is even trying to hide your feelings.
Now now Sidus. Lady Bearing is a married mare.

Papaver Field [Mage] 370599

So. Hum. Things to do. Ah.

Roll #1 5 = 5

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370600

I'll head up to Steamship, if she isn't busy with another cadet.
"Pardon me, nurse?"

Lime Rock [Shaman] 370602

"Uh… hey I was just saying! …Are you okay?"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370603

I say giggling like a freaking filly.

Sidus [Rogue] 370604

I nod.
"Yes. Yes I do… but why do you want to rush it? I know it is important, but it's not like I'm planning on leaving you! And once we become Paladins, that will give us a solid and firm ground to stand on."

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370605

"Oh…I'm alright."
Try to straighten up.'1d10'
"Your turn to make the sculpture."

Roll #1 10 = 10

Lime Rock [Shaman] 370606

I raise an eyebrow in surprise
"Don't you get complimented more often? I mean you're really good, I'm sure more people told you that right?"

"Riiight, let me get back to that."
Turn back to my own work and continue working '1d10'

Roll #1 8 = 8

DM 370611

"Yes? How can I help, hm~?"
"I just…
…I don't know.
Maybe I'm scared. Scared you might find someone better or something…"
She tries to cuddle in closer and push you over so she can lay on top of you

Roll #1 5 = 5

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370614

"I'd like to request medical leave tomorrow to take care of that problem taken care of. The paperwork is in order, right?"

Sidus [Rogue] 370618

Looks like she couldn't, but I see what she tries to do and lay down on my own, smiling at her.
"I couldn't possibly find better~"

DM 370621

"It is, yes.
I can sign the papers for you. Good luck with that.
…preparing for the gala night, are you?"
Sidus… can we just… be here for a moment? I'm not sure what to think right now. And… I could use your reassurance."

Sidus [Rogue] 370624

"Of course we can…"
Keep caressing her back.
"Whatever happens though, I will never abandon you."

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370628

I'll blush a little.
"If… if it comes to that. I want to be… ready in case she's ready."
I'll shuffle a hoof.

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370635

Watch him intently.

Lime Rock [Shaman] 370637

Looks like I'm making good progress!

"Heh, looks like you're a good inspirer Cherry, I'm on a roll!"
Let's finish up for today '1d10'

Roll #1 9 = 9

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370641

Clap my hooves when it's done.

DM 370642

"Thank you…"
She just lays her head on your chest
"…your heart sounds so strong…"
"Well you sure sound like you're ready."

Lime Rock [Shaman] 370644

I chuckle as I pull a blanket over it
"It's not done, obviously, but I made great progress."
I nod at her
"Thanks for keeping me company, it really did help me out."

Sidus [Rogue] 370645

Hold her close.
"Because you feed the fire within it."

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370646

I'll blush a little more.
"Well, there have been some close calls recently, so I think she's dropping hints."

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370650

Walk over to him.
"It was great to see you work.
You put such energy into the sculpture."

Lime Rock [Shaman] 370654

"That's why artists like us do what we do, no? Feeling that spark… that inspiration… that flame inside you and wanting to shape it into something existent. Be it a song, a painting or a statue, it' all stems from inspiration and passion."

DM 370662

She calms down.
Springwind peeks in, but just closes the door and lets you have your moment.
"Well then these will come in handy."
She tosses you a small box

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370663

Catching it, I'll look inside curiously.

Sidus [Rogue] 370668

Keep gently comforting her, tracing my hoof along her back, but say nothing.

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370670

Roll not to swoon.

Roll #1 5 = 5

Lime Rock [Shaman] 370676

I cock my head
"Are you feeling alright? Is something wrong?"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370678

Right RoN again.
"Oh yes I'm fine.
I just love hearing you talk about art."

DM 370679

"A simple if effective invention. A garment of sorts to prevent unwanted foals."

Sidus [Rogue] 370680

"Mhm… What is it, Burning?"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370681

I'll close it and blush slightly.
"So, the medical leave form?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 370682

Lalala. At the gala, at the gala!
Seriously, anything to do in the meanwhile?

DM 370685

Gala kicks in as soon as Jon rolls for his new dick
"Can I… make a suggestion?"
She takes out a slip and signs it
"Present this at the gate. It's good for 24 hours."

Sidus [Rogue] 370686

Tilt my head slightly.
"About what?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 370687

I want a dick too.
And for that, I need confidence in my magic.

Lime Rock [Shaman] 370688

I smile
"Oh, of course."
I sit down in front of her
"So what made you decide to become a musician, hmm?"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370692

But you already rolled it, and it was decent!
And then it'll be tomorrow and I'll be out to the medical facility.

DM 370698

And a dick to copy
Need to meet Leaf?
"Lets…. get under the covers… and ditch the uniforms…
…and just enjoy the warmth and try to nt do anything more~"
What were the final numbers?
"Your medical pass checks out. Be back in 24 hours."

Papaver Field [Mage] 370700

Not now, it looks like the others are done.

Sidus [Rogue] 370701

I smile at her.
"If you can do that~"
Do as she proposed.

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370702

I giggle.
"I don't know.
I've been practicing with instrument for as long as I can remember.
I find it fun."

Lime Rock [Shaman] 370707

"Do you sing too? Or just play?"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370709

Found 'em. Size 8, balls 6, function8, looks 7
And once I arrive at the facility, I'll head up to the receptionist.
"Hello, I believe I have an appointment?"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370711

"You know I can sing, silly.
Remember yesterday in the field with the tree?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 370714

Oh! Oh! DM! What if I give him my 3 10?

Lime Rock [Shaman] 370715

I facehoof
"Right. Stupid me."
I smile sheepishly
"I guess my mind repressed that after singing so badly."

DM 370717

She is even warmer this way.
She softly caresses your flank, then presses right up against you
"I do so enjoy feeling you like this… This is how ponies should be…"
If that is what you both wish

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370718

I'd rather those be saved for something that actually matters.

Papaver Field [Mage] 370719

But then I could study a 10/10 horsecock!

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370720

You don't know what DM rolled for Leaf yet. Also I think Star would have some strong words about that.

Sidus [Rogue] 370721

I chuckle.
"You are right… you are warmer this way…"
"And I'm sure you are prettier naked too~"

Papaver Field [Mage] 370722

Fiiiine I will keep that for the dresses.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 370723

B-But honey! I-It's for scientific purposes!

Sidus [Rogue] 370725

>needing dick augumentations

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370726

"If you want to,
I can give you some lessons…"

DM 370727

"You can look all you want~"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370728

…If you two insist. That should only need one 10, right? Just for size? The other numbers are fine.

Papaver Field [Mage] 370729

Nope, too late.
We save the dresses, you have nice enough numbers.

Sidus [Rogue] 370731

Take a good look then.

Roll #1 9 = 9

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370732

Good. T'was all a ruse.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 370733

It was a joke.
Star would be very flustered.

Lime Rock [Shaman] 370734

"Hm… hey why not? Sounds like it could be pretty fun."

DM 370736

You pull the covers off her
She blushes a little and lies still, letting you look all you want
"…like what you see?"
"And your name was…?"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370738

"Jonagold Apple."

Sidus [Rogue] 370740

"Love it~
I can't wait for us to finish the Academy so I can see you like this all day."

DM 370742

"Mhm. Yes. Penis enhancement surgery, right?"
"You could see me like this every night if you just opened you eyes…"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370743

I'll blush.
"If that's what it's written down as."

Sidus [Rogue] 370744

"We sneak in the shadow and the dark all the time, but daylight just makes it all the better."

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370745

"I'll hold you to it."
Smile at him.

DM 370747

"Right. Operating room is down the corridor on the left.
Do you prefer full anesthesia or will a pain inuring spell and some blinders be enough?"
"…mind if I look too?"

Lime Rock [Shaman] 370748

"Of course. Now, anything you wanna do? Maybe a little spar?"

Sidus [Rogue] 370749

"How could I refuse?"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370750

"The blinders and spell should be enough. My pass is only good for a day."
I'll shuffle a little.
"It… it shouldn't hurt too much, right?"

DM 370751

"Give me a good show then~"
"Probably. Nopony has ever tried it without numbing at at very least."

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370752

I'll nod.
"Thank you. Was there any specific doctor I should ask for, or…?"

Sidus [Rogue] 370753

Roll on my back and strike a pose with a smirk.

Roll #1 8 = 8

DM 370754

"Just go get changed. The team will be with you shortly."
She blushes a little
I like that…"

Sidus [Rogue] 370755

"Do you?
Of course you do!~"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370756

I'll nod again, thank her, and then be on my way. Corridor to the left. And here I am. Waiting for the medical team.

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370759

"You better get ready."
I say with a smirk.
Go to the training fields.

DM 370760

"Sometimes I wish I could have a statue of you… in all your glory~"
They soon arrive. Three doctors and a nurse.
"Apple, right?"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370761


Sidus [Rogue] 370762

I smirk even wider.
"A statue of me?… you'd really want one, wouldn't you?"

DM 370763

"I have you marked down for blinders and numbing, that, correct?"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370765

"Yessir, that is correct. My pass is only good for a day, and I don't think I've the time for the full knock-out treatment."

Lime Rock [Shaman] 370766

I follow her
"You did well against Papaver after she beat the hell out of me, I fear the worst but… I don't really care."
Get my mace and shield ready once we arrive there.

DM 370767

"Very well. Get disrobed and come into the operating room when you're ready. We'll go prep."
They leave via the same side door they came from.

Sidus [Rogue] 370768

Look away casually.
"Hmm… and what if I got you one?"

DM 370769

"Then I hope it includes this~"
She gives you crotch a gentle poke
"I'd want it lifelike~"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370770

Well, they're doctors. Not like they haven't seen it before.
Strip, and head in. Keep the uniform just inside the door.

Sidus [Rogue] 370771

I laugh.
"That would just look silly, Burning."

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370773

"I'll be gentle~"
Go and come back with my warhammer.


"Oh no, don't you hold back. I'm not going to shy away from a bit of pain!"
Take a ready stance and wait for her to do the same, then charge in to strike with my mace

Roll #1 6 = 6

DM 370775

"Would it?
…why don't you get up and show me?"
"Please lay down on the table and put these on."
The nurse gives you a set of blinders.

Sidus [Rogue] 370777

"You know what I meant, a statue of myself is supposed to reflect my victorious, triumphant side, not my, heh, other endowments."
Hop out of bed and strike a pose
"But if you insist."

Roll #1 5 = 5

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370778

I'll swallow slightly, put on the blinders, and assume the position.

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370779

Block it, and hit you with the hammer.

Roll #1 1 = 1

DM 370780

"Hmm… no… that's not quite enough…
Can I try and per it up a little?"
She giggles and blushes softly
They wheel in a curtain to block your sight past your belly.
"Alright cadet, we can begin when you feel ready."
"Administering numbing spell." '1d10'

Roll #1 1 = 1

Sidus [Rogue] 370782

"Only if you pose for me too~"

Lime Rock [Shaman] 370783

Looks like you were 2slow2block and received a heavy hit.
I back off again and take up a defensive position.
"Just tell me when you want to stop, okay?"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370784

Seems fine so far.
I'll nod for them to start.

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370785

I get up and smirk.
"Don't get cocky boy~"
Another hit, hard. '1d10'

Roll #1 3 = 3


Try to dodge that and counterstrike!

Roll #1 5 = 5


I smirk as I successfully dodge and hit her again.
"Of course not. I know well enough that would just bite me in the ass."
Again, ready to charge at her as she regains her bearings

Roll #1 1 = 1

DM 370792

She gets out of bed and starts moving you into a new pose.
Though after a moment you can't help but feel she is purposefully making the pose more and more revealing…
"Alright. Testing. Can you feel this?"
He knocks your dick.

Sidus [Rogue] 370794

Smile at her knowingly.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370795

How bad is it? '1d10'

Roll #1 5 = 5

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370796

Yeah. I can definitely feel that.
I'll wince.
"Yessir, I can feel that."

DM 370797

You can absolutely feel it.
"Reapplying numbing"
…just let me have my fun… ok?
You'll get to have yours too…"

Roll #1 10 = 10

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370798

And now I'm comfortably numb. It's almost as if it isn't there.
Which is slightly worrisome.
"Well, now I can't feel a thing, sir. It is still there, right?"

Sidus [Rogue] 370799

"I wasn't stopping you, silly."

DM 370801

"Not for long.
It'll be much better!"
…earplugs might have been nice.
You might not see or feel it, but the medical lingo and sound of meat being cut are a little unnerving
She finally gets you into a pose she likes. Which on your end is embarrassingly revealing.
"Now to just get this last piece into presentable shape~"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370802

Well, let's study that wall over there. How many times can I count the tiles before they're finished? '1d10'

Roll #1 4 = 4

Sidus [Rogue] 370803

Why should I be embarassed in front of her?
"And your plan is?"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370805

Smash again.

Roll #1 5 = 5

DM 370806

And you break focus just enough to hear some phrases you never, ever wanted to hear.
It's not the most heroic of poses.
"Well… I know you like it when I give it good attention…"
And that she indeed does.
Before you know it, you are giving her a manly salute down south.
Now if only I had this as a statue…"

Lime Rock [Shaman] 370807

this one is for you

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370808

And let's hope I'll never have to hear them again.
They should be finishing up any time now, right?

DM 370809

A few more stitches and mending spells later…

Sidus [Rogue] 370810

"I can't promise a statue exactly like this, sadly…"

DM 370812

"And why not?"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370814

Smash through it.
"I hope you're not finished yet."
Another smash.

Roll #1 10 = 10

Sidus [Rogue] 370816

"I don't think I can find somepony to make a statue like that anywhere nearby."

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370817

I'll relax slightly.
"So… it's fixed?"


I gulp and try my best to dodge.
"Not yet…"

Roll #1 3 = 3

DM 370819

She smirks
"A statue like what~"
She then brushes right up to you
"Certainly. Just don't use it for some days or you might rip a stitch."

Sidus [Rogue] 370820

Throw my tail over her ass.
"A statue this detailed."

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370821

"Should be no worries about that."
I'll sit for a moment.
"So… I can get off the table?"

DM 370822

The numbness will wear off in a few hours. Pain is normal, but if you notice bleeding, come back immediately."
"How detailed~?"
She reaches down with a half-eyed smile

Sidus [Rogue] 370823

"Very detailed~"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370824

Nope, in your face.
"Come on, I'm sure you can take a little girl like me."

Roll #1 9 = 9

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370825

I'll gingerly get down from the table, and take off the blinders.
"So… that's it, then?"

DM 370826

"Let's hope so.
Get it checked once you get back, and again in a few weeks to ensure it has healed properly."
"What parts do you think they'd leave off~"

Sidus [Rogue] 370827

"Parts that only you need to know in detail~"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370828

I'll nod.
"Thank you."
And then I'm warped back to the academy and probably a bit sore.


I cough and get up
"Bah… gimme a moment…"
I shakily get up and take up a ready stance again, ready to counter her next move

Roll #1 2 = 2

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370832

Haha nope.
The hammer hits you again, right in the head.
Cherry then drops her hammer and walks over to you.
"Oh, I'm sorry. Sometimes I get a little carried away with things like this. Are you allright?"

DM 370833

"Good enough."
She kisses you as a reward for being a good statue~
But with the returning feeling comes the reassuring knowledge that it certainly is leagues bigger than before.

Lime Rock [Shaman] 370834

I rub my head
"Yeah… I'll be fine… you're strong… too strong…"

Sidus [Rogue] 370836

"What about our agreement?"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Crusader] 370837

Well, thank the Sisters for small miracles. Let's get Nurse Slab to look it over, since I'm not completely trusting Steamship just yet, and then turn in for the day.

DM 370838

She smirks, then stands up straight
"Pose away, maestro~"
She gives it a clean bill of health. At least it made the journey home intact.


Cherry Merry [Bard] 370839

I go over to him and help him up.
"Oh I'm sorry, like I said, sometimes I get carried away in things like this."
Give him a hug '1d10+2'

Roll #1 2 + 2 = 4

Lime Rock [Shaman] 370840

That's a pretty forceful hug
"It's fine! I guess I only got my own sloppiness to blame… should have been training harder…"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370845

Hug better '1d10+2'

Roll #1 8 + 2 = 10

Lime Rock [Shaman] 370847

Much better
"T-Thanks… that does help with the pain…"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370849

"I'm sorry I hurt you…."

Lime Rock [Shaman] 370851

"It's fine, that's what I get for messing up…"
I rub my aching spots with a hoof
"I'll live, don't you worry."

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370890

Look worriedly.
"Maybe we should go to the nurse to get you patched up…"

Lime Rock [Shaman] 370893

I smile at her
"Cherry really, I'll be just fine. Don't you worry about me. I'll just have to make sure I beat you next time!"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370896

"Just make sure you get some rest."
I smile slyly at him.
"You'll need it if you want to beat me next time."

Lime Rock [Shaman] 370898

I'll chuckle
"I guess you're right about that… wouldn't want to make it too easy on you and get sloppy."

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370901

Smile at him.
"Oh I would hate it if you got sloppy."
Pick up my hammer and his sword
"Let's put these away again."

Lime Rock [Shaman] 370902

mace, not sword
"Allow me. I'll carry that for you."
I take her hammer and my own gear with my telekinesis.
"You were the winner after all, while I get to suck dirt as the loser."

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370905

"Or we could say you're a gallant gentlecolt who offers to carry my things back.
Sounds much nicer doesn't it?"

Lime Rock [Shaman] 370906

I snicker as I go store our gear away
"You're giving me too much credit, I think it's only fair."

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370911

Hop back with him when we stored the weapons.
"It was really nice to see you sculpting.
Maybe we can do that again someday?"

Lime Rock [Shaman] 370913

"Of course! It was great to have you around!"
I grin
"Besides, we're going to be dates for the Gala, no? It's best we spend more time together to get to know each other better!"

Cherry Merry [Bard] 370915

I grin.
"Right, I'll see you around then, Lime."
Wave as I go off.

[To Top]
