"Racist," Violet mutters under her breath, barely audible, before turning to River, asking in a low voice, "So, any ideas? Did you know you had a changeling in your basement?"

She watches his expression carefully during his response - if things turn ugly, she doesn't want to be siding with someone who put them into danger in the first place...

The gears in Rapid River's head are turning. He looks forward at where the stand was, winkled face unmoving aside from slow blinks. He hides his initial feelings well, lost in thought of what to do now...

Mostly though, he feels really cold...

"The basement?" He shivers silently for a bit. "Yes, the ice on the floor above that stopped my stand would mean that, but I didn't know anything about a changeling. I thought it was after us," He gives a small friendly and reliable smile, but feels uncomfortable giving it right now. "I'm too use to that. But, I can't scout the basement now." He looks down to the floor, which has frozen below your hooves. Indeed, the ice has now encased the rooms interiors fully, but has grown underneath any funishings and yourselves, leaving you thankfully unfrozen. A sadness fills River's eyes, accompanied by a sigh, made visible by the cold air. "I'm sorry Violet. Had I been anywhere else in town, those colts would have found me by myself eventually, and you wouldn't be here right now. My stand isn't strong, nor can it fight against other stands, and the ice stops it from searching for the user. I can't help us get out of this."

"Well, uhm, evidently a strong fighting stand isn't what we need, either..." Violet glances ruefully at Mint, before focusing on Rapid River again, producing a small flame from her hoof to provide some small warmth to the two of them. "You, uh, sound like you've been through stuff like this before... does, um, does this always happen?"

Splendor sits idle outside the house, keeping an eye on the stand user. He is out of Space Cowboy's range, but he can at least watch to see if he makes a move that he can intercept...

Meanwhile, he casually chats with Optic. "So how did you hear about this stand user, again? It wouldn't be anything that might have to do with our enigmatic attacker, would it?"


I guess I'll put this thing to good use and make a perception check on the guy, see if there's anything else notable, or unusual... or anything...

"When I was around your age, I travelled around Equestria looking for stand users. I figured, Princess Celestia might not have been a stand user, so somepony had to protect Equestria from them. I made a lot of friends, stopped a few horrible ponies. Most stand users were just doing their own thing though, or doing what they think is just. But that life is behind me. This is the second time I've encountered a hostile stand user since then, even if this one isn't hostile towards me."

"A friend of a friend," answers Clear Optic tapping his glasses, sitting nearby but further from the house than you are, "Mr. River was rumoured to know how to make healing brews, so I searched for him here to discover how, but after he spotted The Scientist, I fled. I have no clue who our assailant is."

Inspecting the scene more thoroughly, you notice a few little details. First, every so often the stand user pulls his focus away from the ice directly, puts on a pair of sunglasses to protect his eyes from the sunlight reflecting off the ice roof, and looks around for a breather before returning to his focus, sunglasses slumping under his head as he does. You also notice a couple of details in regards to how the ice interacts with things, or rather, how it doesn't. The ice is exclusively on the building itself, and hasn't spread onto the ground. The shelves on the walls of the open shed have been frozen, but the items on the shelves have remained unaffected, as has a hung photograph of the sea on the wall with only the nail being frozen. Finally, a drain pipe that runs down the house on one of the corners are also unfrozen...

"Hmmm.... have you noticed its only the walls, windows and doors that are frozen? The ice isn't spreading anywhere else. I wonder why that is." Splendor looks up towards the edge of the roof again. "We really need to get up there. Or... draw him closer to us. Any ideas?"

"Protect Equestria..." Violet murmurs, looking around at the ice for no particular reason. "Um... I don't know if this is the best time to ask, but I'm out of ideas, so... um, what does your stand do, actually?"

She glances down. "Unless... you think we should try and see about this changeling in the basement?"

Clear Optic gets up, rips some grass out of the ground with telekinesis, and holds it against the ice. Watching alongside him, you see that the grass blades does not become encased in the ice either. After a moment, Optic drops the grass and presses his hoof to the ice. It too remains unfrozen, thankfully. "The ice is safe to touch." He lets out a scoff, "All that panic for naught. If you want to get up, just use the shed's roof as a halfway point, but I'm remaining down here."

"Looking for the changeling is a good idea," nods River, "It is only a matter of time before the enemy stand finds it. As for mine, I'll tell you about it if you don't tell the other two. There is only one arrow left, in the hooves of a pony who would never use it, and very few ponies know about it, some of whom want it. I need to be sure they are telling me the truth before I can tell them. Can I trust you, Violet?"

"On my honor, I'll never tell a soul." Violet put a hoof to her chest. She means it, too - secrets aren't for sharing, is something her clan taught her in times past.

"Oh now you're scared of heights? Come help me climb." Splendor goes to the shed and tries to make his way up to the roof, as inconspicuously as possible.


I guess acrobatics and stealth rolls?

Rapid River listens to your reply carefully. "Alright. To put it simply, [Float On] changes how things act with water. It can make things float or sink, more water resistant, stuff like that. Remember when it touched the door?" He points to the door to the opening hallway, where the ice was first spotted, now completely frozen. "I tried to make it super absorbent, to stop the ice from freezing any moisture on it. But it didn't work. It looks like the enemy stand does not simply freeze the object, it creates ice around, covering it completly."

"My stand can also induce regeneration, but that was already said. Now, should we go find a changeling?"

Despite the slippery ice, you manage to climb up to the shed's roof even without help, and with your magical eye, you see that the stand user above does not react to your activities...

"Look Splendor, you are the one with the stand that can protect yourself. The Scientist provide no method of protection. What am I to do if I am attacked?"

"Run? Fight back with your own hooves? Cry and curl up in a ball?" Splendor spits back, now agitated with his unhelpful friend. "Or follow me up and I'll protect you. Up to you, really." He continues to climb, levitating Space Cowboy up half way and using it as a rung to assist him.

"Straight down?" Violet looks around for a way that might lead to a basement. "Or, um, is there a door going down?"

"Or I remain here and be safe regardless." Optic yells back. "Why do you care so much about these two to put your life at risk like this?"

(You can finish the climb to the roof of the house if you want...)

River looks at the frozen door, and to the kitchen which is also frozen. He turns to you with a little smirk. "Straight down."

"Mint," "–HA!!"

Mint sounds almost elated as she appears, though her scowling visage is much the same, her golden hooves punching straight down at the ground beneath them.

It's probably not very quiet, but since the ground is getting frozen over, they need to get to work fast.

Splendor climbs all the way, and turns to shout back. "I might care about them, or I might care about dealing with this new assailant, or I might just care about their stands. It's certainly more interesting than running for safety and going home." He turns and saunters towards the pony on the roof, Space Cowboy now more confidently twirling above his shoulder, ready to be used. "Long way from Appleoosa, aren't you?"
