Tinder looks at Fox and Broad, frowning as they both insist on her getting treatment. "Fine... One of you two can try to treat it, but I'm not letting the medics touch me. I seriously could have lasted till I got home though, I would have patched it up myself." She moves what's left of her bag out of the way and sits down so either Broad or Fox can treat it.

"I'm sure you would have Tinder." Foxtrot says as he steps forward, retrieving the rest of his medicated wraps. "With this you really can travel back to Ponyville with no problems. This isn't for serious injuries though, once you get back I recommend a checkup just in case." He peels off the bandage and applies it to her wounds; the wraps cleaning, numbing, and sealing the damage as a chilling feeling emanates throughout. A minute later, Foxtrot finishes his work and steps back, putting away the wraps in his pockets. "Don't pick at it, at least until you get home, then you can peel them off."

Pastel watched as the silent onlooker shifted forms and mouthed the word 'follow'. Okay, WHAT? That pony is a shifter, Mono. And I think he's been following us. No ****. But for how long? Who knows? We should follow him though. Keep your guard up, P. "Commander, I'll see you later. I have someone I need to talk to." Pastel said as she walked off, following the other shifter into the alleyway.

Upon entering, Pastel did a quick check of the area before speaking up. "Alright. I'm here. Who are you, and what do you want?"

Choc peeked out from behind a bin with a nervous smile. "I didn't think I'd actually get this far." Choc mumbled to himself as he shifted back into his original form. "My name is Ocean Spray. I... how are you able to shift in public without causing paranoia? Because I can't take all this secrecy anymore. I'm tired of having to run away every time someone discovers what I am. I just want to be able to walk the streets without fearing for my safety."

"Truth be told? There'll always be that fear." Pastel said with a sigh. "Although it helps to have someone who you trust and can count on in tough times. Someone who will stand by you through thick and thin. I consider myself lucky in that regard, because I'll always have Monochrome watching my back." Pastel says as she shifts into Monochrome. "And I'll always have Pastel making sure I don't die. When we feel alone, we have each other to lift our spirits. True, it won't be as easy for you to find someone as it was for us, but you'll find them. Because I truly believe that ponies are kind and thoughtful by nature, no matter their outward appearances. Fear just gets the better of us sometimes." Monochrome turns to walk away but stops, turning back with a grin. "And hey, if all else fails you have two new friends right here. If you ever need me, I'll most likely be at the docks. Just head on over and shift. I'll be notified if you do." With that, Monochrome walks back out of the alleyway towards Broadshield, Tinder and Foxtrot.

"Of course, as you wish Tinder." Broadshield says before dismissing the medics, who go back to the FOB. "Where are you going?" He asks Pastel as she walks off, not really getting any answer from her as she walks off into an alleyway. Thinking nothing of it, he focuses his attention back onto Tinder's injury. "You don't need to hide your injury from us, or stop ponies from treating you, we're here to help you, with whatever needed." He says to her, before watching Foxtrot finish up fixing up Tinder. "Well, now that most of us are together, I guess it's time for a bit of a debriefing. We have of course managed to detain and extract all the Directors, even though it wasn't easy, and all of us have been injured in some way, along with some unwanted intervention. Equinox also was able to keep casualties to a minimum, but we have lost a few ponies, both Equinox and civilians. We lost 3 soldiers from the fight with Zulu, and we lost 5 Combat and Support soldiers combined helping with the evacuation efforts, crushed by debris. We lost a few civilians as well, we don't know how many exactly. We have also had several ponies injured, but thankfully they will recover with time. It will take some time but we will eventually clear out the building and hopefully do something better with the vacant space, besides, tonnes of rubble in the harbor isn't exactly a good look for Manehatten. Despite the circumstances, I would say this mission would be a success." He pauses before continuing. "Now, as for the two of you, Foxtrot, you will have access to the Manehatten base and its facilities, same goes to  Nivalia, and Tinder, you will have your slate wiped clean, a new start for you. But, I have an offer for both of you. The three of you, Nivalia included, all bring valuable skills to the table. Equinox is always looking for ponies who can bring something to the table to help us fight for Equestria. I am offering all of you to be a part of Equinox. For you 3, for your work and contribution over the last few days, you will have perks. If you join, you make the choice in where you want to be stationed, whether it be in your hometown, or anywhere else in or outside of Equestria. You also have a choice in which unit you wish to be in. You have three meals a day when not on missions, with decent living quarters, separate from the barracks. You also have access to the resources that we have available to be used however you wish. In terms of payment, whenever you make a somewhat significant contribution to Equinox, whether it be completing a mission or developing something new, you will be paid a small percentage for it. If needed, we are always able to make compromises if it makes life easier for you, and if you need anything, anything at all, Equinox will do everything in its power to provide whatever it is you need. So what do you two say? Are you willing to join Equinox and fight for your country?" He asks. He really hopes that they accept his offer. Equinox always needs good ponies to join them, and Tinder, Foxtrot and Nivalia are exactly what Equinox needs to help make Equestria a greater country.

Tinder looks at Fox and smiles a bit, "Thanks, but you know as well as I do that I'm not going to get a checkup for this." Tinder stays seated as she listens to Broad talk, frowning as he says the first part, she was hoping no one would get killed here today. As he says his offer she stares at him, thinking it out as he says it all, usually she would never even consider this, but with the perks. She thinks for a bit before asking her own questions, "So,  I'd still be allowed to live on my own? I wouldn't have to live in some crowded base with a bunch of guards? And can I have a job outside of that as well? Because I'm not sure if that kind of salary will be enough to help me get the things I need."

Foxtrot remains silent as he listens to the report, the fact that there are casualties regardless pulls at the unicorn's thoughts. It's when Broadshield makes his offer that he's taken off guard, even  more so that it's extended to Nivalia as well. "Although I can't speak for Niv, I can certainly relay the offer. As for myself..." Foxtrot pauses, his tone becoming more somber, "I haven't been a guard in years, and it didn't end well either." Whether he liked to admit or not, it was a damn good offer, and even he knew he would need work in the future. "I need to think about it. With everything that's happened today it's just a lot to take in. I still have to sort out what's left of The 26, after that though I'll come back with my answer. Should take two days tops." The tug of war in his mind goes on after he speaks, however the chance to serve in the guard again has much more traction in his decision.

Broadshield listens to both Foxtrot and Tinder's own questions and comments, before answering them both one at a time. "Tinder, you live in Ponyville don't you? All of the Equinox soldiers in Ponyville live in their own homes anyway. Some of them also have a second job there as well to help with finances, so you are perfectly capable of living on your own and doing your job, whatever it may be. Occasionally, you and the Equinox garrison at Ponyville will have missions you will need to do, whether it be guard duty in or around Ponyville, doing recon in the Everfree Forest, and if it ever happens, assist the Elements of Harmony and Princess Twilight in defending Ponyville whenever a crisis occurs there, mainly because it's the crisis center of Equestria." He says before giving a light chuckle at the last part. "Either way, your proficiency in ice magic in combat could prove to be helpful." He says before he turns to Foxtrot. "I understand that this is a big decision Fox. Take whatever time you need until you are ready to make a decision. I'll be in Manehatten for the next few days overlooking initial relief efforts for what has happened here." He says

Tinder listens to him and thinks about it for a while, scratching at the ground nervously, "Thanks for the offer, but I don't think I should. It would be really hypocrital of me,  I'd be doing more illegal stuff than the ponies I'd be arresting. Plus, you saw how I was around gaurds, it's better if I stick to myself I think. If you need any help though, you know where to find me. I'm gonna have to say no to becoming a guard, but I offer my help for any big missions you need me for."

Content with the reply, Foxtrot nods as he listens to Tinder; the image of her in guard armor does seem interesting though. By nowell the sun has gone down and the sky is painted a collage of orange, pink, and purple. Stars scatter across the expanse as the city lights themselves add to the Manhatten skyline. The unicorn looks towards the north before addressing his companions. "Alright guys, it's gonna be a long, boring night for me so I better get going. Broadshield, I'll see you in the next couple of days. Tinder, thanks for sticking around through all this; I still gotta show you the rest of Canterlot when I can..." He pauses, his tone becoming more sincere as he resumes. "Thank you, both of you for all this. The 26 won't be a threat anymore, and I'll make sure of it." With a casual salute Foxtrot begins to head out, his thoughts wandering off as he strolls down the dimly lit streets of Manehattan; things are gona be different as a whole new world of possibilities open.

Content but still a bit disappointed at Tinder's response, Broadshield nods his head. "I see, that's a shame, I thought you would've been a great Equinox soldier." He says. "But I respect your decision, and if that's what you want, then so be it." He adds. As the sun goes down, fog lights light up the area of the collapse, recovery efforts still going on. "Well, it's going to be a long night for me as well, helping out with recovery efforts." He says in response to Foxtrot. "I'll be seeing you soon Fox, until then, stay safe." He says giving a salute to him as he heads off, the wall of soldiers opening up and closing as Foxtrot leaves. "Well Tinder, I guess you'll be heading back home now. The train stations should now be opened up since everything's calmed down, but I don't know when the next train to Ponyville will be coming. If it doesn't come soon, maybe you could wait here, maybe help out if you want." He says, taking a pause. "You did a lot today Tinder, you should be proud of that. Whatever you're gonna do now, I'm quite sure we'll see each other soon. Good luck Tinder, stay safe." He says giving a salute to her, then proceeds to make his way over to the rubble, starting more work, helping out ponies already there. It was going to be a long quiet night, but after everything that has happened, Broadshield wouldn't have it any other way.

Tinder nods and fixes the remains of her bag to cover the bandages, "Yeah, I'm heading out. Be careful out here tonight, I'm sure I'll see you again sometime." She gives a quick wave and walks out, headed straight for the train station. She just wants to get home, curl up on her bed, get some pills from her stash, and sleep.
