Hope's Refraction

Post  Dream Axis on Mon Aug 04, 2014 7:02 pm

Upon arriving at the base of Mt. Canterlot, you are immediately graced with the site of two things, the first being the absolute massive group of ponies, dragons and even a few diamond dog's that are all milling about, some of which seem to have set up their own concession stands and are pedalling their wares at one another.

The other sight that catches your eye  is the large tent towards the middle of the clearing, notable in that not only was it was surrounded on all sides by a platoon of royal guards but also in that it appeared to have a line leading to, what a helpfully placed sigh proclaimed as the ticket booth.

Figuring it best to get it over with you make you way to the surprisingly fast moving line and make your way to the front.

Storm and SoftScales :
your password is Twilight Sparkle and Rarity respectively.

As you both reach the fount of the line you notice a bored looking bat-pony at the both, upon stepping up to you he gives a little sigh and asks for both your invitation’s and passwords.
Shadow:
your password is Rainbow Dash.

As you reach the fount of the line you see a bat-pony at the both, who upon seeing you gives you a sort of knowing grin while asking you for your invitation and password.
Zakiyya:
your password is Pinkie Pie.

As you near the fount of the line, you manage to hear the stallion in front of you tell the guard at the desk that “Friendship is pudding", before being waved though,seemingly further into the tent.
“Next please” the guard says, giving you a little smile as he asks you for your password and invitation.
Diamond:
your password is Applejack.

As you reach the fount of the line you see a obsidian coloured dragon, decked in guard armour looming over you, before asking you in a really high pitched and squeaky voice for your invitation and password.
Milky:
your password is  Fluttershy.

As you reach the fount of the line you see a white Pegasus, who timidly asks for your invitation and password.

Milky Way smiles kindly at the pegasus, handing her the invitation and telling her the password in a hushed tone, not knowing whether or not they were supposed to let absolutely nopony else know their passwords. "Fluttershy"

So many ponies.

The sight made Soft feel uncomfortably self-conscious. Was she walking right? Like, her feet weren't too far apart, for stepping too loudly, were they? She caught sight of herself in a window, and opened her mouth. Her teeth were a bit sharper than these ponies- was that noticeable?  Was she clean enough? A yellow coat, scrubbed with fire (and-ew- water). They wouldn't hold her scruffy grey mane and tail against her, would they? It wasn't her fault they were singed!- er, mostly not her fault....

Changed my mind, let's go home," she whispered to Storm... far too late, since they were at the front of the line. She stared at the bat-pony - dragon wings on a horse?!? Why couldn't that be her- before taking a breath. When you were facing a dragon, you couldn't show any fear.

She grinned, remembered her teeth, and corrected to a fierce scowl as she hoofed the letter over.
"Rarity."

Shadow shifted her weight, a little uncomfortable with the whole scenario. After all, somepony had made her, and she hadn't noticed. That said a lot for their ability, and it was on her to do damage control. She nodded at the bat-pony, speaking in a measured tone for now. "Rainbow Dash," she said in response to being asked her password. It didn't matter if she was heard or not, they'd need her invitation, and she was handing that over right now. Best to just get in, find the one who'd sent this, and do damage control.

Zakiyya pauses in her absent minded doodling of the impromptu marketplace as she reaches the guard. When asked for the password she flips her sketchbook to a relatively blank page and pulls out a quill to scratch out "Pinkie Pie" and then hands over the invitation.

Storm Fire resisted the urge to roll his eyes at his sister’s fretting other her appearance. Despite her insistent claims to be a dragon, and only curious to learn where she came from, she really worry a lot about how other ponies might take her. Whilst the actual, bigger than ponies, scaled fangs-and-claws dragon, wasn’t worried at all.

Storm Fire nodded politely to the the bat-pony in front of them, and informed him of his password. “Twilight Sparkle.” The curious was obvious in his voice, as Twilight Sparkle was a pony name, as was Rarity when he thought about it... “Whoever she is.” He added absent-mindedly, not really speaking to the bat-pony, but just thinking outloud. Turning to Soft Scales, he nudged her slightly. “Calm now sis, we’ll be fine. Bullies have never stopped you, and dragons are a lot more dangerous than ponies, now come on, lets try to enjoy this.”

The guard waves you through further into the back of the tent, where yet another guard greats you and gestures you through a rather out of place door, strangely enough though, when you go through it, you no longer find yourself in the tent but rather a train compartment, that is if the words train compartment was synonymous with that of a five star hotel and then covered in gold and crystals.

To your left is what appears to be a large buffet table holding an assortment of gems, fine wine and other high class food.

To your right there is a pile of what looks like board games assembled next to a large, fully stocked, bookcase

A quick look glance out the window also tells you that not only is the train already moving but that  you are now on the other side of the mountain then you where a few seconds ago..

Arranged in the centre of the room there are a series of sofa’s surrounding a golden table where, a note and six plush toys sit, one of which looks remarkably like you.

The note congratulates you on winning access to the V.I.P compartment and that Golden Desire will be greeting you after you have all assembled. Until then however you are free to indulge yourself on the buffet table and anything else in the compartment.

Milky Way makes her way to get a closer look at the plush toys. Just to how much detail does this thing look like her? She also takes a look at the other plush toys, wondering if they are identical to the other VIP's

From what you can tell a fair amount of work has went into this plushy, being fairly realistic to the point that you think that the cutie mark on its flank matches your own star for star.
Though, you do find the words 'kindness' hidden on the bottom of the plushie,  a quick inspection of the others also  reveals that they too have similar words stitched on them,
they are : 'loyalty' ,'generosity', 'honesty', 'laughter', and 'magic'.

Shadow trotted in, looking around at the others, moving to pick hers up and looking over it carefully before glancing at the note. "So...I take it you're all VIP's as well, then? ...Does anyone actually know anything about our host, aside from their reputation?" she asked, noting the odd group. It was certainly a motley crew, but perhaps it was for the best. Maybe they'd been more or less forced into this as well? Still...Loyalty...Somepony had a sense of humor, she supposed.

"Um... it's only you and me in here right now, until the rest of these ponies arrive." Milky Way gestures at the dolls, and how there are four aside from the two ponies already present.

Scales said nothing in reply. Storm was right. She knew he was right. Still, there was a hoard of difference between knowing and feeling.

She took a low breath as they were conducted to the room. As soon as they entered, she noticed the door other ponies present (she felt her wings stiffen with tension)... before recognising the gold and crystal lining the room.

Scales stared at the opulence, almost mesmerised. Her nerves melted away, replaced with a broad grin (and a gleam in her eye). Her tail swished.
"Shiny," she said, barely above a breath. One thing that made her undoubtedly a dragon- an appreciation for a hoard.

"H-hello... Everypony..." Diamond comments clearly on edge because of deeply hidden reasons.

(OOC: Hey, what's the saying on changelings being able to tell if eachother is a changeling? Cause that's sometimes a thing in fanon... If so would be neat if somehow Diamond & Shadow teamup with knowing that eachother is a changeling, somehow. Maybe there is just a tell of some kind that only changelings can notice. But it's very, very, very rude to out a fellow changeling. Basicly the rudest and most insulting [maybe even insulting to a changeling's very own system of honor] to do to another changeling. Even worse than killing... Or should be in my headcanon of changeling social sutruer... Wouldn't be something that Diamond would know about... But would HOPE is a thing. So she'd be known as just a "fellow changeling" and not a "mutant freak of a changeling" [totally something that a changeling or two have called Hidden Gem] in the team changeling duo.)

Zakiyya walks through the door rather slowly wary of the of the magic. She begins to awkwardly wave at the ponies but stops as she sees the buffet and her stomach audibly growls. Immediately she walks over and looks for something good to eat.

"Well, there's more now, I suppose, hmm, hmm. I was premature, though, you're right." Shadow looked around, looking at the group that was slowly filing in. A zebra...? How interesting...An earth pony, the unicorn who'd addressed her, and a pegasus. Good so far. "Still, we're getting a bit more of a group now. No need to be shy, though. I don't think anypony bites. "Should we start introductions, or wait for the life-size versions of the remaining plushes to enter first?" She waved a hand at the table, thinking a bit. Might be best to know who was on her side against Desire, as it were.

"Name's Rough Diamond... Feeling a bit blackmailed into coming here I gotta admit because of reasons... So kinda on edge... Hoping we don't have to deal with too big a grouping of cowpones..." The Earth Pony said with a bit of a southern twang in her speech... Yet at the same time a bit of class as well.

While the others spoke, Scales had worked her way across the room, albeit it in a walk that was a little lopsided, keeping her eyes stuck to the gems and gold on display. She pawed at the floor, finding a bit of decoration that seemed a little less secure than the rest, and was about to take it...

When she remembered most of her company weren't dragons, and that was probably rude. But...shiny...

"uh... I'm Scales. Soft Scales. And that's my brother," she added with a gesture."Storm Fire. So... do you guys mind if I take this? I mean, it's not like any-pony'll miss it, right?"

"Far as I can tell everything here is basically here for us to to use as we wish... So bet you can have it at least temporary if not for keeps." Diamond comments with a shrug more wondering when the host of this meet-up was going to appear and WHAT she should do to help keep her secret quiet...

Scales grin grew, and she began working at the decorative piece with her fore hooves. A moment later -and with a loud grunt, and a wrenching sound- the Pegasus had pulled the decoration out. She grinned around it, clamped between her teeth, like a dog with a bone.

"'Fo, umm.."
She fidgeted, suddenly uncomfortably aware of her position. She spat out the bobble, setting it by her hind legs, and glancing around the car, suddenly desperate for a conversation topic. One that wouldn't make her look like an idiot.
"So, uh... nice train, isn't or? Very... shiny. With stuff."

"Yeah, it's a fairly nice train, all things considered. Must have cost a lot of bits...Right, though...Introductions...I'm Shadow Dancer, and...Who are you, miss Zebra?" She looked at the only individual who hadn't been introduced yet, thinking for a moment. Soft Scales seemed odd, but perhaps manipulable, Diamond was in a similar boat as she was, evidently...The others she couldn't get a bead on. Milky Way seemed nervous, though.

Zakiyya pauses if a bit halfheartedly. Walking back towards the group she pulls out her sketch book turning to a prewritten message. " My name is Zakiyya. It's a pleasure to meet you. I can't talk." Pursing her lips for a moment as she looks around the train car she writes out "This place is fancy to the point of being gaudily, an aggressive show of wealth."
