Jack was silent for a moment, rubbing the bridge of his nose with one hoof. "Correct me if I'm wrong, but did we just get ditched on this asteroid?"

Bubbling Spring sighs. "No, I think you're exactly right." He looks around for a moment, then grimaces and settles himself down on the ground. "So, what do you do normally?"

Jack sat down as well, pulling a flask out of seemingly nowhere. "I run a bar mainly. Well, run's a strong word. I tend it. It's a place big enough for a dude to check cards at the front. Has to be. 'Cause, you know, blind. My gramps once said he would make a scent and put subliminal messages in the ads so underage people would buy it and make my job easier, but unless he went back in time and made Axe, he hasn't done it yet. How about you?"

Bubbling Spring's forehead creases, and he think a bit longer than most ponies might have to. "...Not an awful lot." He eventually admits, grudgingly. "I worked odd jobs before I came here, but I ended up...detained...pretty quickly."

Discord doesn't seem to notice Wandering Eye. Workers have stopped what they're doing to spectate; it's clear in their eyes that they have never seen Discord so... Shocked.

"Could it be..." He looks up and around at the collected gawkers. "...Who found this?" he asks in a bewildered voice. Eyes flick to glance at companions. Discord starts to become agitated. "TELL ME!" he roars into the awkward silence.

Lock Tight lifts a hoof to point at Wandering Eye. His daughter points at him. Soon, everyone is pointing at our brave trio...

Glowing Soft shrinks down into a ball with a "Meep." as Water Drop points at her. "She did it."

Wandering Eye really didn't like all of those hooves pointed at him, so he just turned to the twins and nodded. "That's right, we never got to how exactly you found the suitcase..."

Jack sat up and sighed. "I'll be earnest with you, Bub. I don't think ol' snakespine is coming back, so it'd probably suit us to get out on our own some. But, I was never one for magic myself. You got any ideas up there?

At this he tapped Springs' horn with his cane.

Bubbling Spring's horn flashes Carnelian at the tap, but fortunately this time no flames appear. The blue stallion looks up, trying to process how long the awkward silence had persisted. "If you don't want to chat, you can just say so." He says casually, and he bends his head again, his horn lighting up as he spreads magic over the surface of the planet, looking for the point where the door should be.

OOC:

Arcana check to find the door: 10+14=24
If he finds some sort of magical...nexus-type-thing that needs to be interacted with to summon the door, the best way I can describe his approach would be to give it a sharp tug.
Arcana check for that (if necessary): 13+14=27

Bubbling Springs finds such a door within twenty paces... Although, he can't actually see it, he's quite sure of where exactly it is. Oddly, his attempt to open it magically doesn't seem to accomplish much; it appears to simply slide in and out of the ground...




Discord whips down to face-level to stare Glowing Soft in the eye.

"Do you know what that is? And I mean really know?" he asks in a quiet rasp.

"Was I seeming standoffish? My mistake, friend." Jack got to his hooves and leaned casually to one side. "Chit chat is a commodity among bartenders after all. Half therapist, half pharmacist they say, and so it can feel a bit on the clock when I do. If I like you I'll shut up."

Gowing Soft starts trembling. "N-n-no I'm sorry please don't hurt me." "Hey! Leave her alone! This thing has been weighing us down for a month now, and when we finally have a hope of getting it off our backs, you come and do this to my sister!? At this point, Water drop is butting her nose into Discord's face, anger plain on her face. "The kindest, sweetest, most innocent mare in all of Equestria aside from Fluttershy, and what do you do!?" She pulls away and gives Discord an askance look. "And I thought you were friends with Fluttershy."

Wandering Eye took a couple steps back from the outraged Pegasus, eyes wide behind his glasses. The contrast between the twins was stark at this moment, and he made a mental note not to cross Water Drop - or her sister.

In the meantime, he said to the spirit of Chaos, "And what, pray tell, is this thing?"

"...Good to know." Bubbling Spring replies, with a hint of a smile. He experimentally tries tugging the door out of the ground telekinetically.

Spring pulls the door up with no issue until it settles into place with a click...




Discord glares hard at the pegasus in his face. "What will I do?" All save Water Drop (being too close) can see an old, familiar smirk playing onto the Chaos Lord's face. "What will I do, she asks." His smile grows wider as a thick, black cloud forms overhead.

"I'll tell you what I'll do! I'm going to THROW YOU A PARTY!" he announces, punctuated by a lightning strike in the background. He grabs the two twins, one in each hand, and begins to twirl with an almost child like glee. "Because ypu found my TRAVEL CAAAASE! Do you have any idea how long I've been looking for it I looked everywhere and didin't find it anywhere you really must tell me how you did it and I must apologize I never thought it would do that and I need to go find Pinkie Pie I'll mever be able to handle this alone this needs to be the BEST party-"

He continues spinning quite fast as his speech becomes incoherent...

"That was easier than expected." Bubbling Springs says, opening the door with his magic and stepping through it.

Jack moved over to walk next to springs, balancing his cane on his nose. "If we end up in another room that defiles the laws of physics, and yes I do mean defiles, please warn me in advance."

Glowing Soft starts turning green, and Water Drop facehooves. "What did I just get myself into?"

Wandering Eye watches the twins go round and round, and notices Glowing Soft getting a bit... ill. "Um, Discord? It won't be much of a party if one of your guests is sick."

Luckily, Discord has the wisdom to stop his spinning gradually before setting the twins down gently. "There! He's right, y'know, getting ill would be just awful. I've seen enough vomit today anyways. But it's just so exciting! Although, now that I think of it, I may need to postpone it a while. It seems like there's some sort of festival coming up... But you just don't know how much this means to me!"




Upon entering the door, Bubbling Spring and Jack Daniels find themselves, not in the hallway as expected, but in a wide, sprawling cavern. The walls are painted a garish pink, and the floor appears to be made of some mildly sticky substance that Jack decides must be hard candy, judging by the smell of sugar and lime.

Speaking of the floor. You find yourselves on what seems to be the corner of a simply massive staircase, going up on the right and down on the left. He can't see the top or bottom of either side, and it's wide enough to build a large house on. However, there aren't any guard rails, and there doesn't appear to be a bottom.

"So, it's your travel case?" He peers inside the case in question. "What does it do?"

As soon as both are on the ground, Water Drop wordlessly escorts Glowing Soft away from the crowd, into fresh air.

"Oh?" Discord turns to look at Wandering Eye looking at the suitcase. There doesn't seem to he anything out of the ordinary. "You see, this was one of my early creations; and I mean really early, it might be older than the Princessess even! It was originally just bigger on the inside than out. But, left unattended, my magic tends to go... Haywire. Which I mostly don't care about. But at this point, who knows what it can do? OH! I wonder! If you found this old thing, I bet you could find the other pieces too! I could never find those, either. I thought they would be in the case, but apparently not..."

"If you're curious to know what it does now, it basically bound itself to the twins and myself, and every time one of us leaves the vicinity of the suitcase, we're either transported to it or it's transported to us." Wandering Eye closes the suitcase. "And... other pieces?"

"Why of course there's other pieces! What point is there in a travel case if you're not putting anything in it to travel with?"
