Siege of Manehattan
« on: October 25, 2015, 08:42:35 pm »
The train sits at the station on the edge of Canterlot, only lanterns lighting up the area. The stars are overhead on the warm breezy night as a few ponies, much less than the daytime, trot about their business. All of the stalls except one is open, same for the lone ticket booth; the train itself still runs, preparing for it's overnight trek to the major city on the edge of Equestria. Foxtrot steps onto the platform and looks around, hood up and jacket zipped shut he looks around and goes to the ticket booth. After a quick exchange with the worker he returns with everyone's tickets and passes them out. "Here you all go. Round trip tickets to Manehattan." The unicorn pauses, looking over to the train, "Guys, this is some serious stuff that'll happen. As much as I want to, I... can't guarantee your safety. If either of you want out, now's the time."

Nivalia plucks the ticket off of Foxtrot's hoof and stores it away. "Well you know what my answer is bro. We're in this together..." She remembers what she heard in the tape, about Victor and Sierra. Nivalia desires to tell him, but knows what could happen if she does; a decision that has her torn both mentally and emotionally. The changeling shoves those thoughts to the back of her mind, for now there are more important matters to tend to. "I'm with you Fox, we all are."

Broadshield stands at the platform waiting for Foxtrot, donning a casual grey hoodie with an armoured vest underneath for added protection, stowing away his armour and weapons from earlier with the Equinox medics. Taking a ticket from Foxtrot and putting it in his pocket, he says "Fox, you don't need to worry, I got your back in this, and if needed, so does all of Equinox. The 26 are a threat to Equestria and surrounding nations, there's no way were gonna stand by and watch their madness unfold."

Tinder takes the ticket from Foxtrot and puts it in her bag, "I have your back as well, I know I'm not quite as prepared as these two but I'll help as much as I can." She smiles at him and then looks back down to the ground. The only part of this whole trip that she's really worried about is being stuck near Broadshield for that long, fearful that he'll somehow just know the things she has in her bag. But because she wants to support Fox she's not leaving yet.

Foxtrot couldn't help but smile at their reply. "Thanks guys, that means a lot to me. Let's get going, the train won't sit for us forever." After adjusting his pack, the unicorn trots over to the train, Nivalia following right after. The two present their tickets and board the train, walking over to a rather large booth in first class.

While listening to Foxtrot, Broadshield glances over to Tinder, who is still looking down and not making any eye contact with him. 'I wonder why I make her so nervous, maybe I'll ask her on the train.' He thinks to himself. Making sure he has everything he needs, he follows Nivalia and Foxtrot into the train and into the booth.

Tinder lets everyone go on ahead of her, taking this second alone to grab her pills and take a couple. She smiles a tiny bit and follows them onto the train and into the booth where they are all. She sits down and gets comfy in the seat, glad that she doesn't have to walk anymore for a little while, getting ready for the long train ride out.

Foxtrot slides the booth door open and steps in. Leather seats, a small ceiling fan with a light, and even cup holders adorn the booth inside. Stepping in he shoots over to the window seat, taking his guitar, machete, and backpack and stores them in the overhead compartment. Sitting down he takes a deep breath and leans back on his cushioned seat. "Ah... Nothing like doing nothing for a while."

Nivalia enters right after Foxtrot, putting her things away as well before sitting next to him. "Were not there yet bro. We still need to figure out what to do about your triggers. We're going after the ones responsible for your erratic behavior. The last thing we need is for them to activate you again and turn on us. I swear you using your hooves to blast us with magic is not fun at all." Foxtrot sits up straight and looks at Nivalia, rather surprised and confused. "What?" The changeling asks before her eyes widen at the revelation. "Oh my goodness! That's right, you don't remember what happened. Fox... You have magic. It never left, you just can use your horn; they made it where you use your hooves. I think I know how I can break this control they have on you, but it's a long shot."

"Nivalia has a point, the 26 know exactly what to do to trigger your behaviour. If we just go in without a plan to stop them from turning you on us, we're gonna have some problems." he adds to what Nivalia said. "We're not leaving for a little while anyway, they're still loading up passengers and cargo. We're probably going to leave in maybe 5 or 10 minutes. Its a long train ride to Manehatten so we could probably discuss a plan of some sort on the way there." he says. He then puts all of his gear in his bag on the ground as opposed to stowing it away properly.

Tinder keeps her bag on her back, for she's not a big fan of showing her weak spot off to everybody and she likes keeping the things in that bag near her at all times. She squishes into the booth seat to get comfy and yawns, nodding slightly to show that she's listening to the conversation. Not wanting to risk being without weapon in hand if someone comes, she grabs one of her daggers from her bag and lays it next to her with her hoof resting on it.

Foxtrot remains silent for a moment, the thought that he still has his magic still sinking in. Taking a deep breath, he looks over to Nivalia, knowing full well what she's implying. "Are you sure it'll work? We haven't tried that since we were kids Niv and..." He trails off, "I don't know... I don't know how messed up I am right now."

"Fox. I've done that many many times after we were kids. Mom and pop would be p!ssed if the found out but... Yea, did it anyway. Besides, I have a degree in psychology, I'll know what steps to follow. You just have to trust me, please." Foxtrot sighs, then nods, getting up and sitting  opposite of Nivalia. The changeling glances over to Tinder and Broadshield, "I'm going to do what changelings do best... other than shapeshifting. I'm going to hypnotize him, get in his head and hopefully break whatever conditioning they had on him."

Tinder stares at them both for a second, letting what was just said sink in before she nods again, happy to know that there is a chance that it'll fix it.  She pulls her dagger in a bit closer to herself, for easy access in case this plan of theirs goes horribly wrong. "Be careful."

Hearing what Nivalia will do to foxtrot makes Broadshield both uneasy, as well as a little bit angry, considering the past time he was aware that a changeling hypnotized a pony, Canterlot nearly fell. Wanting to avoid that, and to stop her from doing what changelings do, Broadshield chimed in "Nivalia, I don't know. Maybe there's another way we can do this without your changeling magic. Besides, as it's been said, we don't know what will happen if you do it, we may get another moment of Foxtrot attacking us, as well as civilians on the train."
