Next stop: Ponyville! (Station)
« on: August 09, 2015, 06:27:24 pm »
Next stop: Ponyville! Please exit on the right!

Airy slowly woke up from his slumber he had fallen into when his train had left Appleoosa, which had had to be hours earlier based on the schedule he had read there. The first building of Ponyville that caught his eye, a huge clock tower, confirmed his guess.
He yawned and stretched his fore legs before releasing the brakes holding his wheelchair in place and rolling towards the closest door. Being able to sleep during a train ride was very relaxing, especially since the last nights hadn't been all that long for him. Somehow the desert's climate hadn't been one of his favourites at all.
Just moments later the train stopped right in front of the colourful building that was Ponyville's central station.

Ponyville was a lot different from most of the other cities he had visited on his journey. It was neither gray nor glamourous, neither silent nor overly loud. Rows of colourful buildings formed a perfectly harmonic image with the trees and flowers between and around them, even though there was one tall building that indeed was a little too shiny for this little town. Still, it was a town that Airy immediately got to like. All that was missing so far was a place for him to stay.

The clock-tower at Ponyville station had just begun ringing out to signify the noon hour when Octavia and her new-found friend walked into the courtyard in front of the platform, chatting happily.


"You can really grow flowers from the crystal empire? Wow, they must be so pretty. I've always wanted to go there, but I never have the time or money, it seems." Octavia said, looking over at Lunar.

Lunar nodded, smiling happily.

"I'll have to show you them sometime; the Lunar Shard is one of the most beautiful flowers that's ever been discovered." She said, resettling the case of flowers she had balanced on her back with her magic. She looked up at the scheduling board to see when the next train was.

"Mmm, looks like we'll be here for a little while, next train to Canterlot is at 12:30 and it's just becoming 12:00 now. Here, let's grab a seat." She said, motioning over at some of the empty benches near the train platform.

Octavia looked up at the board, confirming the diagnosis before glancing at the clock-tower to verify the time. There was no reason for Lunar to lie to her, but she had simply learned to double check everything ponies said, just in case. She looked over at the benches Lunar was pointing at, and with a nod, began to walk in their direction.

Airy watched the ponies walking around near the station for quite a while. The friendly look of Ponyville was perfectly accompanied by the ponies' happy faces. Looked like he'd like staying here for a while.
Two ponies suddenly caught Airy's eyes, a gray earth pony and a light blue unicorn mare. Okay, actually the gray one was the one Airy recognised - how couldn't he being a musician as well?
He was just about to run over and ask for an autograph when his timid side abruptly stopped him. It wasn't an unusual problem for him, he often got nervous when talking to ponies he admired. The fact that the very pony he saw now also was a mare didn't help at all though. Only his eyes followed Octavia until she sat down next to her friend.
Oh, come on, this is my chance! She's one of the best and most popular cellists of all time! Come on, I won't have that chance again anytime soon!
He took a deep breat and started walking towards the two ponies, but the closer he came, the slower he got. Now he wasn't even sure what situation to prefer - was it better if Octavia noticed him and thus kept Airy from having to start the chat or was it better if she did not notice him and how awkward he looked?

If there was one sense Octavia could say she was proud of, it was her hearing. As a musician, she had learned to pick up even the tiniest imperfections in the musical balance of something. So, when out of all the sounds of hoof-falls that were falling on her ears, she suddenly started to pick up on the sound of something rolling at a decreasing pace in her direction, she couldn't help but be interested. She turned her head towards the sound, and saw a green pegasus in a wheelchair nearly stopped, looking straight at her with an odd mixture of sadness and determination on his face. She smiled warmly, waving to the stallion.


"Hello! I'm afraid if you're looking for directions, I shan't be of much help; I'm not a local, you see. My friend-" She paused, leaning over to whisper in Lunar's ear.


"Hey, are we friends now?" To which lunar nodded.


"Great. Anyway, my friend here does live in Ponyville, she can probably help." Octavia finished as though she had never stopped talking.

Once Octavia's eyes met with Airy's he immediately stopped every movement. After she even talked to him it took several seconds for Airy to reply.

"Er... hello. Actually, I'm not... or... actually... yes, I am looking for a place to stay", he babbled slowly calming down again. "I just arrived here and don't really know anything about this town. I'd be very grateful for some help indeed."
And I want an autograph, Airy added silently. And I want to talk to you about music and show you my compositions and...

Amongst the bustle of ponies exiting the station, another mare was trotting by on the other side of the street. Ever still bopping her head to the music playing through her over-sized headphones and she even deliberately made extra steps just time herself perfectly with the beats. She still had that large sack in a firm grasp of her magic behind her as well.

It took her a while - probably longer than it should have - but she finally noticed just who was standing across the street. The white mare grinned as she waved feverishly to Octavia; she didn't recognise the other two she was with but still waved to them anyway. Vinyl Scratch then trotted across enthusiastically to meet up with them and when she did she lowered her headphones to her neck; it's music still blaring out of them, something that the particular track was fitting for a rave.
"Hey guys what's crackin'?" she greeted over the electronic music, "Octi, you didn't tell me you were visiting Ponyville! You wound me." she added in jest.

((I assume that Octavia and Vinyl are good friends already?? If not I can edit it, just let me know. :) ))

(You should never assume anything in RP. Also, why is some of it blue? Are quotes not enough? And no, you can't edit it, that defeats the point of RP. Gotta, 'Role' with it. Huh? Huh? I'm sorry, that was awful.)


Octavia smiled warmly, she knew what it was like to try and get help from random strangers; it certainly was awkward. She opened her mouth to speak up again, when another sound cut through her focus. This time, she knew exactly what was causing it, and as her eyes shifted over to confirm the source, she sighed slightly.


"Sorry, hold on a moment, I'm certain she's going to interrupt." Octavia said, turning to greet the newcomer with a smile. Vinyl scratch, Ponyville's resident DJ and **** raver. She wasn't what Octavia would consider a bad pony, all things considered she was actually rather nice. However, her horrendous, garish excuse for music, which could always be heard in her presence, was what really got to Octavia. If she would simply turn it down around other ponies, then her popularity with Octavia would at least triple. But, asking her so was a lost cause, one that Octavia have explored several times.


"Hey guys what's crackin'?" The white mare said, ever cheerful. "Octi, you didn't tell me you were visiting Ponyville! You wound me." She continued. Octavia had to resist the urge to roll her eyes.


"Oh, not much, we were just having a conversation. I'm here on business, I'm leaving at 12:30. There, I have now told you." Octavia said, struggling to continue smiling at the well-meaning mare.

(I dunno, I thought it was funny.)

Lunar watched at the well known DJ of Ponyville, Vinyl Scratch, made her way up to the three of them. Lunar didn't mind her music, and didn't really care much about her as a pony; she simply never did social things, and so the only contact she had with the mare was cases like this one. She could tell, however, that Octavia was not quite as fond of her, although she was doing a stellar job hiding it, and Lunar certainly wouldn't have noticed if it weren't for her being a shopkeeper. She saw how much the stallion looked like he wanted to talk to Octavia, so she figured she would try to draw Vinyl's attention.

"Hey, Vinyl! What's up? Whatcha listening to today? And what're you carrying? Looks heavy." She said, grinning.

Another pony joined their conversation, a white unicorn mare Airy recognised as well. His father was a huge fan of Vinyl Scratch's music, but Airy somehow never had found anything interesting about it. Well, for making a crowd dance, her music was a lot better nowadays than the "old" classical music he preferred. Well, three completely different musicians meeting in one place usually was a great thing for Airy, so maybe he could make something out of it?
Wenn, but first he still needed a place to stay. Maybe the DJ unicorn could help him?

"Er, excuse me, I don't want to interrupt, but... do you know a place where I can stay for a few days?"

Lunar shrugged. If he wanted to talk to Vinyl too, then there was no harm in it, and she certainly didn't need to keep up a conversation. She glanced over at the clock-tower to make sure they didn't miss the train. They still had 15 minutes left before they needed to be heading out, and Lunar looked back at the scene before her.

"Cold Octi, that's cold." Vinyl replied with a forced chuckle, "Whatever happened to those friendship practices the princesses have been preaching about? Seriously though, next time you're in town hit me up. It'll be rad to jam some time."

The mare's grin only broadened at the other's interest in her music but even more so what was in the sack, "To one of the tracks of this wicked stallion who goes by the name Skrillex. I'm getting some pretty sick ideas for my own tunes! As for what's in this baby, I'm glad you asked!"
The unicorn carefully set the bag onto the ground in the middle of the trio before rolling what was inside. The sack was then thrown up in a dramatic fashion to reveal what was underneath and on the ground was an... interesting mess arrangement of DJ Equipment strapped onto what appeared to be a wheel-less skateboard. At the top, on either end, were Decks; then a small Mixer and Controller at its centre. Underneath were large yet surprisingly flat speakers.

In her excitement Vinyl Scratch even shifted her pink sunglasses to rest above her horn, revealing her eyes, "Introducing the Wubber Board! I invented it! It's a totally awesome mix of combining music with a skateboard that will let any pony using it hover a few feet above the ground! Pretty neat right?! Here, lemme get it started..."

Her horn lit up and much to Octavia's 'delight' Ponyville was suddenly 'welcomed' with booms and rattling beats of electronic music. It was so loud that the manes and tails of the trio surrounding it even lifted up into the air from the blasts of music mixing. Windows of nearby buildings rattled within their sills and the ground vibrated slightly to the heavy base that was included in the composition. However, the only thing that the Wubber Board accomplished was just that, no hovering was involved what-so-ever. The most it managed to do on its own was to rattled on the ground a bit.

Though it wasn't heard over the music, Vinyl let out a nervous chuckle before turning it off. The momentary silence that had followed was almost deafening.
"Heh, yeah... forgot to mention that it's still a work in progress. I've been meaning to get some pony good with tinkering to help me out on how to get these wubs to make the board hover. Maybe it needs to be louder?" she added that last part as a thought she had spoken aloud. The unicorn seemed to be unaffected by sudden, atrociously loud music that was played.

The DJ's smile seemed to be endless as she looked to Airy, "Oh I know of a few motels you could stay at - one's just down that street, down the road second to your right-" Her eyes then drifted down to his Cutie Mark, "... Oooor, a fellow musician is always welcome at my place! What do you play?"

The white unicorn mare did seem to like talking; if he recalled correctly, she alone had said more than any of them - Octavia, her friend and him - together. But well, he definitely was the last one to complain about that since he really liked to talk a lot too - at least sometimes.
He listened to Vinyl's explainations, even though some of the words she used were totally new for Airy. When Vinyl told them that she wanted to show what all of that meant, Airy was curious - maybe a little too curious. When the music started, his ears were way too close to the speakers, and when it stopped, all he could hear was a deafening whistle in his ears that covered up any other sound around him, including the things Vinyl said afterwards.
"Well, this does sound interesting as a concept, but maybe next time you could warn me before you start the music?", Airy shouted to get over the (non-existing) noise around him.

Octavia groaned as Vinyl revealed her creation, mostly because of the giant speakers. As soon as the mare said 'music with a skateboard that will let any pony using it hover" Octavia realized how it worked, and while she was mildly curious, knew it was going to be unfathomably loud. She reached up and stuffed a hoof in each ear, just as the 'music' started. With her ears plugged, it was bearable, but the look of pain on the stallion's face was enough to make Octavia cringe anyway. The device didn't, however, lift off the ground. At all. Eventually, Vinyl turned it off, and Octavia breathed a sigh of relief. She started making excuses for its dysfunction, all the while the stallion stood dazed. After a few seconds, he started yelling about the volume, and she got the impression that he couldn't hear much of anything. Which had the potential to be career ruining if it became permanent. Octavia nodded in agreement with him, reinforcing his point.


"I know it doesn't matter if you can hear since that... Stuff you listen to is all the same, but if either of us losses our hearing, it's... Oh, how would you put it. Something along the lines of, 'Game Over'? Please, do be more considerate, a warning would have sufficed. His ears aren't bleeding, so I think he'll be OK, but my point still stands." Octavia huffed, annoyed that Vinyl had once again forgotten the other ponies like hearing.
An eternal night will come.
