Ok, here we go:

It's a quiet afternoon in Luna's Retreat, and townsponies fill the town, ambling back and forth. The lunabelles are closed, almost slumbering as they wait for the night.

There is a quiet strumming coming from a side street off of the town square, and at first glance you would think your eyes were deceiving you, for the music is coming from a small baby dragon, tuning a very small lute. Ponies walk to and fro, occasionally stopping to listen and examine the young one. He gives a start and messes up the tuning at the sound of power tools. Very loud ones. Coming from the town square.

Unknown to the young dragon, the noise is the competition setting up shop. A pegasi moves back and forth across a small platform, unfolding banners and wood and all manner of things. He has attracted a small crowd, wondering what exactly he's doing. In the back, but moving forward, is another pegasi, wielding a camera and wearing a scarf.

The photographer is here on an anonymous tip from a friend, who said a new magician was going to be setting up in town square for an afternoon performance. He grabbed his camera, kissed his girlfriend goodbye, and strode out the door, curious about the new performer.

Meanwhile, an earth pony prepares to leave for a secret meeting that will change her home forever: She's going to visit the local handymare, an earth pony who happens to live in the clouds, to pick up a birthday present for her recently adopted daughter. She sneaks downstairs, and quietly slips out, preparing to leave.

High above the earth, in a home that appears to be constructed entirely from clouds, the cloudsmith is idly chatting with her friend while waiting for her new customer to show up, a pegasi who is going job hunting in a bit.

The pegasi chats back, in an extremely pronounced Prench accent. This pegasi is rather new to Luna's Retreat, and is going out today to seek out a job suited to her passion: baking. She needs this job very badly, as quite a few of her possessions were destroyed or ruined in an unfortunate crash landing.

((And we're live, folks! RP at your pleasure!.))

The chocolate colored pegasus stands in front of her new roommate, using her wings to help her balance on her hind legs as she animatedly flails her hooves around. Making rather unusual gestures as she recounts her story. "...But then, the freezer exploded into an ocean of batter! It was, how you say, très sticky! Non?" She giggles animatedly to herself before taking a breath, seemingly trying to hold back her laughter to continue speaking. "Ah oui, when we finally managed to dig our way out, the oven was missing and the inspecteur was never heard from again!" At this she breaks down laughing, clutching her sides and rolling around for a moment before sighing as she begins to calm down. "Anyway, that's how my friend Sofi learned her cutiemark was in Animal Care!" She says in a breath as she rolls back onto her hooves, seemingly done with the strange story.

When the story was finished, the white and black earth pony mare across the pegasi was grinning and said, "Well that's one way ta go about it I 'spose." "But what happened to tha- actually nevermind. I don't think I'd even want to know." she stated, putting up a hoof in a "stop" gesture and then gave it a slight wave to dismiss the topic.

"So, ah right, back to tha topic at hoof. The only bakery's I know around these parts that might be lookin for a new body would be I guess... hmmm. Ol' Joes and that new one... called... erm... tisserie I think it were. That'd be like the number thing. Shouldn' be hard to spot. It's perfectly circular. I mean perfectly perfectly by the by. They somehow got the outer walls made in a frictionless environment. I think some of the magic clung to em too. So leanin' on the wall'd be a good way to find yourself fallin' on your back."

After she exits the shop, the deep tan mare quickly checks a cooler to make sure that the odd payment is still within. It'd taken several stops to gather enough, but if this is what buys a bed these days so be it.
Satisfied, she begins towards the earth pony's cloud home, dragging the heavy container as best she can, attempting to ignore the loud scraping sound it makes as it budges along the road. Several unsuccessful position changes later finds her only a small distance down the road, barely past the first corner, where she drops it in an attempt to find somepony willing to assist her. Spotting a group of construction workers she smiles and heads towards them.
"Excuse me? Could one of you strong stallions help me carry something? I'd be very grateful."
Rolls:
Pfft. Game just started and I'm already lambasting the rolls. (That's an improper use of lambast, but I stand by it.)

The construction workers look at you, and one says fro the back, in a gruff but light voice, "Well, what's in it for me?" The voice steps to the front, and it's revealed that it's a rather wimpy-looking, young stallion, with a yellow coat and brown mane, covered in construction clothing.

Heartfelt scrounges in her saddlebag for a moment, the realization dawning on her that she didn't actually bring any bits with her, before she pulls out a juice box and offers a pained smile.
"I was saving this for later...but you can have it...?"
Roll:
Persuasion- Juice box acceptable compensation: Crit fail (1 + 7 (skill))

The construction workers look at each other for a moment, then burst into laughter. The one worker wipes a tear from his eye, then says, "Oh man, lady, you just made my day. That was... wow. You know what, I'll give you some help, you keep me laughing like that. Tony, cover my shift, I'll e back in a bit." He takes off his hat, and walks towards Heartfelt, asking her, "So... where we heading, Juicey?"

Heartfelt scrunches her face as they laugh and puts the juice box back in her saddlebag, but smiles and gestures back to the cooler after the worker accepts her request.
"I need to get that cooler to that cloud house outside town. That one the earth pony created? It's not very far, but it's too heavy for me."
She starts towards the abandoned container, still slightly scrunch-faced.
"Thank you for the help...and the name's Heartfelt!" she adds in an upbeat voice.

Smoke Screen makes his way to the front of the crowd, ready to take a couple of good shots of this new magician, should the tip prove right. Judging by the crowd and construction, at least something was going to happen...

The pegasus was levitating things like folded tables, stuffed dolls, and seemingly random things in preparation for his first act. "I have a good felling about this show, Then again, It may just be a feeling." Said the magician. Not even bothering to look at the objects as they float to their places.

"Grrr... dang construction, I can't hear myself think!" Lyre mumbled to himself, getting up and walking over to the stage to give whoever was making this racket a piece of his mind.

Eclair giggles slightly to herself as she readjusts her hat and scarf. "Oui, it is for the best you do not think too deeply on it. For your own peace of mind." Satisfied with her appearance she nods in response. "Merci! I shall pay them a visit! Hopefully I shall return here an employed baker!"

The construction worker gives you a slight nod, then walks over and picks up the container, straining heavily. He grunts and begins walking, saying, "Name's Crushing Blow. Wow, what's in this thing, rocks?"

Heartfelt walks alongside him, a spring in her step now that she doesn't have a load to carry. "They're some kind of special weather ice, but they weigh so much! It's ridiculous! Cece asked for them because it's a rush order; hopefully it'll be worth the trouble they've caused."

Crushing Blow snickers and says, "Oh, it's no trouble Miss Heartfelt. Trouble would be if you hadn't called for help, I wouldn't have had the pleasure of making your acquaintance. Oh look, we're here." Heartfelt looks up and notices he's right. He puts down the chest and says, "Hey, come see me at work again sometime, huh? I could use a laugh or two. Bye!" He turns and runs off, leaving Heartfelt underneath Cloudcast's home.

"I'll be sure to bring more juice!" Heartfelt calls after him before treading up the stairs and striking the knocker, jumping as the thunder is created from it.

"Hold that thought a moment wouldya?" Cloudcast said to her housemate after hearing the knocker. She then quickly made her way to the door and opened it to be greeted with the sight of her friend. "Hay there Stitch! Got yer order done and all wrapped up for ya already. Oh right, 'for I forget, there's somepony I'd like ya ta meet. Hay roomie, c'mere wouldja?"

Heartfelt forms a wry smile and says "A roommate? You convinced somepony to stay in this death trap with you?," before sticking out her tongue to indicate she's teasing.

Cloudcast rolled her eyes at Hearftelt's comment and winced at Eclairs, saying quietly, "It's better now with the lunabells up."

Heartfelt winces briefly, before joining the mare in giggling. "Ouch! You're certainly not the first to...let's say unexpectedly encounter it, but you're certainly the first to decide to stick around."
Heartfelt just smiles at the mares for a moment before realizing she hadn't introduced herself. "Oh! My name's Heartfelt! It's wonderful to meet you! As well!"

"Why hello there Mr. baby dragon, What can i do for you? If you're wondering when the show starts it'll start in a few minutes, And if you want an autograph i'm afraid you have to wait until after the show." Said the magician. Tipping his hat to the paparazzi as he talks.

Lyre looked the Pegasus up and down, trying to decide whether he's competition or a potential business partner. "My name is Lyre, and I was going to ask that you try to keep the noise down. It's kind of hard to tune my instrument when I can barely hear it." He said, a bit aggravated, but trying to stay friendly in case this other performer could help him earn a profit and audience.
