Canterlot / Re: The Airship Dock (Open to all!)

Vex addresses Nivalia first "Only one! Once I set a course, it practically flies itself; just need to adjust occasionally to account for wind."

The trinkets Hex is looking at are mostly just simple jewelry and decorations, of a wide variety of styles and quality. Vex raises the ramp they entered on and pulls it into the hull with a click. She turns around to Hex "You go right ahead! I'll be outside shortly to untie us from the dock."

"It does!" Vex points to a door "Through there and up the stairs." She points to a staircase at the opposite end of the room, beneath the stern. "Those stairs go to my quarters." She smiles. "Make yourselves at home!" and after a moment's hesitation, points at the stairs again and adds "But not up there. And please don't touch the controls."

The room through the door is significantly less crowded with boxes than the cargo hold. On the right is a sort of small kitchen, with a few cupboards and a counter, equipped with fairly standard kitchenware, along with a few odd tools that Nivalia and Hex have never seen before. There are also a couple of crates, one of which is open and half filled with carrots. On the left is a set of stairs that lead up, presumably to the outer deck. Below the stairs is a roughly 4 meter square dip in the ground, only about half a meter deep, absolutely filled with cushions of a wide variety of styles and designs. It looks very comfortable. Directly ahead is a set of controls on a raised platform, with a large ship wheel along with a few long switches protruding from the floor. Surrounding this platform is a floor to ceiling window, set into the bow of the ship, which gives the pilot a panoramic view of what's ahead and below the ship.

The deck above is through a hatch at the top of the stairs. It's fairly simple, and has a comfortable looking sofa in front of the starboard railing. It's in surprisingly good condition, considering it's outside, but the balloon likely protects the deck from at least most rain. The raised stern of the ship has a pair of doors - presumably Vex's quarters - and a pair of short staircases leading up to it on either side. There is another set of controls on the stern, matching the ones below deck.

((Don't even worry about it; I'm just glad you're back!))

Vex flashes Hex a grin "Oh yeah, his name's Trevor!" She leaps up and loops nimbly over the port-side bow of the ship's relatively small deck. The balloon itself is far larger than its payload, and is reinforced with plate metal. On either side of the hull of the ship are a pair of apparently magically driven propellers. Vex returns a moment later through a small door that swings down onto the dock to form a ramp "Come inside!"
The room just beyond the door to the dock is filled with wooden crates, cluttered with a few trinkets and curios from around the world among them. It smells strongly of tea.

Vex leads her new acquaintances through the streets of Canterlot, back toward the airship dock overlooking the vast landscape of Equestria. They'll have to fly over or around the mountains to travel East to Manehattan.

((Not to control anyone else's character or anything, but I feel this just needed a quick bump, and I wanted to state more explicitly what Vex intends to do. If anyone has anything they want to do before returning to the airship, feel free to interrupt Vex and do that.))

She gives Hex a nod "It's mostly tea and trinkets." She allows a brief silence to pass. "We like to exchange stories about our work. She's a night guard for the city."

Vex grins again. "I've faced greater adversity." Her choice of words suits her accent. "Tell me about it on the ship." She pulls a pad of paper from her cart and wheels it up to the door of the home they're in front of. She scribbles something down on it and leaves it on top of the crates before unhooking it from herself and knocking on the door. She hops up off the door step and hovers alongside her new acquaintances "Let's go then! I'll come back and visit my mum later."

Vex gives them both a bit of an exasperated look. "So, you two want me to fly you to Manehattan, where there's some sort of mysterious cryptic emergency that neither of you apparently know anything about other than it's taking place in a skyscraper? And you say it's a regional emergency; how do I know we'll even be let into the city? Or that I'll be let out again after"

Vex's smile droops, but only slightly. She asks the two of them: "What's going on in Manehattan? I've been out of Equestria for a few months."

The batpony gives her a bright smile, marred somewhat by her fangs. She pushes the bag of bits away "No need. I just made a huge profit at my last stop, so I'm happy to do whatever!" She glances at Nivalia "I'll give you both a ride when I'm finished here!" She looks back at Hex "Call me Vex, by the way."

Vex looks over at the new pony. "I do! Just the one though." She gives her a smile that's somewhere between welcoming and egotistically confident. She only slows down a little to allow the new pony to join their rapidly growing party.

"My whole life!" She clearly is enthusiastic about the subject. "My dad's an engineer on a royal guard airship, and I went along with him sometimes. Left home as soon as I could afford one of my own, and I've been flyin'er ever since!" She grins, "I could fly you back to your shop when we're finished here, if you like!"

Vex's grin takes on a slightly mischievous appearance "Well, I left some equipment on my airship. If I ever need that equipment, this crystal," she holds up the pendant with a hoof for emphasis "will allow me to summon it." She allows a brief pause. "Trouble is, once I've got it, I can't put it back; got to bring it back myself."

Vex glances down at the pendant around her neck. "No, actually I got this one from a lovely little enchantress' shop in Zebrica. They have some of the best magical items I've ever seen!"
Her smile widens slightly as she recalls the visit.

"Grew up here, in fact! Dropping in to visit my mum. How about you?"
Vex begins to continue walking down the street, but slowly, anticipating Nivalia will follow. The engraved white crystal in her pendant glints slightly in the sunlight. It hangs from her neck by the same sort of chain worn by military ponies with their ID tags, and it chinks around quietly as she moves, muffled by her fur.

The batpony stops in front of Nivalia. She gives her a quick look up and down and replies
"I'm Vex! I'm sort of a merchant... sometimes." She nods back at the crates in her cart. "These are for my mum though. Are you looking for something?"
Her voice is effervescent, and she speaks with an accent that sounds very local, despite her bubbly attitude.
