Welcome back to The Good Necromancer! Last time:>You and Tanssija say goodbye to Hannu and leave Alln Lenora to meet up with Smoke in Lalundzhik>After a short journey you arrive in Lalundzhik and find Smoke, the three of you catching back up after being separated for two days and celebrating the return of Tanssija>You wake up in the morning and spend a bit of time training with Armas before heading out. As you do you meet a Dragon Pony named Dawyn Crisrinn, a student from the far off Arzakhtinsk College who is going around studying ancient civilizations. Her goal is to reach the town of Sibashika because there are rumors of a Giant ruin near the town. Seeing that she is heading in the same direction and knows quite a bit about magic you decide it would be best to travel with her, though you go to ask Copper first.>After nearly giving Copper a heart attack you talk to him about Dawyn possibly joining the trip. He is strangely hesitant about it, but he does agree to allow her to join. You return to Dawyn to tell her that she's allowed to join. Smoke and Tanssija join the two of you and you spend a while teaching spells to Tanssija to build her magic up.>You then use the mirror to contact Hannu, letting the others speak to him first before you start speaking to him.>Lore Pastebin:https://pastebin.com/M0kTrrNc>Inventory Pastebin:https://pastebin.com/aKksRQdc>Spell Pastebin:https://pastebin.com/LuG8YptA>Information Pastebin:https://pastebin.com/egCQWBJA>Crafting Pastebin:https://pastebin.com/5cZEf2bh>Curse Pastebin:https://pastebin.com/PULLiqFK
"Let them stare, if it means we get to spent more time together. If it is an issue I'm sure there are plenty of lovely places either of us could go to keep our dates private, or you could tell them you're practicing kissing in the mirror, I read quite a few cloistered away princess stories where they do such a thing. I myself am fairly used to strange looks.""Those are just stories. Just have to worry about the ones that think you're crazy." He chuckles."Pine away after me, not like I can help myself being in the same situation, but don't shut your eyes to what's around you," You tell him with a small smile, "There are a lot of pretty does out there, I want to hear about them. Maybe write down some encounters in a book you can relay back to me.""I'll try if I see any," He confirms before sighing, "Long distance is already hard.""None of this distance will be easy," You agree, "But maybe there's magic that we can use to solve or remedy it? I just have to get better and improve.""There are definitely spells out there that'll make this a lot easier," He nods, "I can try to look around for spells like that on my end, but that could take time."What do you do?
>>39923310"I have all the time in the world. I have considered the idea of magic leylines for easy teleportation, or sending an image of ourself, but I think I would need to settle somewhere to set something up. We'll figure out something, and I won't slouch either. Although, there's no rush."
>>39923310"Keep an eye out, if you've the time, but I know you'll be a busy buck. I will be near the magic college to the north either way, which may have an option or two itself. Until we find an alternative, I must say, even hearing your voice has been a boon for my already good mood."
>>39923310You've likely already got a great deal to handle at any one time, don't attempt to stretch yourself too thin by doing everything. I can likely handle some magic like this, I am headed to a repository of magical knowledge. Focus on your kingdom.We give him a small smile. Lifting a hoof up we brush our mane to the side behind an ear so he can see our green eyes a bit better.In the meantime there are other ways to deal with such needs.Lean in and give the glass a little kiss, leaving a faint imprint of our dark lipstick on the glass.
>>39923389>>39923429>>39923450"Keep an eye out, if you have the time, but I know you'll be a busy buck. You've got a great deal to handle at any one time, don't attempt to stretch yourself too thin by doing everything," You tell him, "I have all the time in the world. I have considered the idea of magic leylines for easy teleportation, or sending an image of myself, but I think I would need to settle somewhere to set something like that up."You shake your head a bit."We'll figure something out, and I won't slouch either. I can likely handle some magic like this, I am headed to a repository of magical knowledge. Focus on your kingdom, and until an alternative is found even hearing your voice has been a boon for my already good mood."He smiles at this."That's great to hear from you. It's nice to hear your voice as well, so this'll do for now."You return the smile. Lifting a hoof up to brush your mane to the side behind an ear so he could see your green eyes better."In the meantime there are other ways to deal with such needs."You lean in and give the glass a little kiss, leaving a faint imprint of your dark lipstick on the glass. He blushes a bright red at this, staring at the imprint before looking to both sides of him despite the fact he was alone in his room. He then leans forward and returns the kiss by doing his best to place his lips against where you had left your imprint."Can't replace the real deal, but it'll have to do for now." He comments; still blushing a storm.What do you do?
>>39923659Hmm...'I hope he finds a doe he likes, I'm not sure I can withstand how adorable he is by myself.'Our own cheeks take on a faint pink tinge, lifting a hoof we wipe away the evidence of our lipstick.We'll have to try for a time we can spend time together for reading among other things, both our lives are fairly turbulent so we should attempt to organize the chaos when we can. Do you think you'll be able to talk again tomorrow night?
>>39923659Blush from seeing him blush, a hoof goes to touch the glass as we beam wider than we usually would, though we decide not to touch in, in case we scratch it. Remembering that we're not quite so private as he (presumably? Can't remember if we stepped away), we glance around out of the corner of our eye as our blush grows a little more.'... Note to self, acquire a cloth or spell for cleaning glass.'"Was there anything else for the moment? I don't wish to cut our time short, but I shouldn't keep the others too long.">>39923719Seconding!
>>39923719>>39923728You blush from simply seeing him blush, a hoof goes to touch the glass as you beam wider than you usually would, but you decide not to touch it in case you scratched the mirror.'I hope he finds a doe he likes, I'm not sure I can withstand how adorable he is by myself.'You do carefully wipe away the evidence of your lipstick after you remember that you weren't exactly in private, glancing around at the others as your blush grows. Smoke and Dawyn had smiles on their faces while Tanssija was blushing a bit and trying to look away.'Note to self: acquire a cloth or spell for cleaning glass.'"We'll have to try for a time we can spend time together for reading among other things, both our lives are fairly turbulent so we should attempt to organize the chaos when we can," You tell him, "Do you think you'll be able to talk again tomorrow night?""I should be able to." He nods."Was there anything else for the moment? I don't wish to cut our time short, but I shouldn't keep the others too long.""I did want to talk to my sister a bit more, if that's possible."You nod and hoof the mirror over to Tanssija. Tanssija takes the mirror, leaving your hoof strangely floating there for several seconds before you set it down. Shortly after this Dawyn comes over to you."That was kinda cute." She comments; giving you a small smile.What do you do?
>>39923915"He is... I-I mean, I'm happy to have had a moment with him. Our relationship isn't carved in stone, but I do enjoy his company."(I feel like I could write more, but an drawling a blank.) Been playing Octopath Traveler 2. There's so much to unpack! I'm 36 hours in and only played through everyone's first chapter. This is mostly due to the day and night cycle. Some NPCs only show up during either time, and have to adjust to the characters' different interactions regarding the times. I'm very overleveled just from exploring every nook and cranny during the day and night. Lv30
>>39923915I... Is that... Unexpected? I'm slightly new to dealing with such things so I'm sorry if that was inappropriate. Otherwise, thank you. Changing the subject do you have someone like that yourself?>>39923988Luscinia isn't really one to stutter much I don't think.
>>39923915We maintain our composure well, though our blush doesn't diminish. Still, we give Dawyn a small smile back."Thank you... It may be an unconventional arrangement, but we're an unconventional pairing, and a quandary or two was to be anticipated."Scanning the rooftops for Armas, we gesture our 'raven' companion back over.>>39923988Feel like carved in stone might not be the right way to phrase it, but struggled to come up with an alternative. Seconding!How is the original? JRPGs aren't my usual style, and I've got a few game I need to finish with before I can pick up another, but curious if it might be worth having a playthrough in the going in the background.>>39924013Seconding!
>>39923988>>39924013>>39924024"He is... I mean, I'm happy to have had a moment with him. Is that... Unexpected? I'm slightly new to dealing with such things so I'm sorry if that was inappropriate.""No need to apologize," She shakes her head; sitting down next to you, "It wasn't inappropriate at all, just two people sharing a moment with each other.""Thank you... It may be an unconventional arrangement, but we're an unconventional pairing, and a quandary or two was to be anticipated."You look around at the rooftops for Armas, finding him on a roof nearby. You lift a leg up for your 'raven' companion who 'flies' over to land on your shoulder."Changing the subject, do you have someone like that yourself?""Despite many attempts, no," She shakes her head, "All just crushes that never went anywhere, though a few got farther than others."She gives you a little smile, clearly poking fun at herself as she says the next few words."No one wants to date the Dragon Pony who's way into ancient civilizations apparently."What do you do?
>>39924024I originally wrote 'our relationship isn't concrete', but I felt 'concrete' was too modern. The phrase 'set in stone' is how the saying is suppose to go, but it didn't feel right in this context, and it feels like an older saying. Conveying that we are in a relationship, but not formally dating (open relationship?) is difficult to word. The first one is spectacular! The game is top down, but open world. Every NPC can be interactive with besides the typical generic dialog. (You can steal from them, buy from them, glean info about hidden items or discounts, have them follow you and summoned into battle, and even challenge them to a fight.) There's a ton of side quests too. I have to charge my old Switch to confirm, but I believe my playtime was over 160 hours.
>>39924110 Sooner than I anticipated, but it looks like the opening is here. We raise en eyebrow at that."Forgive me if I find that hard to believe. Those ruby eyes and pretty scales make you a very attractive mare. Also, your excitement is very infectious, it's cute, actually. It reminds me when I was a filly learning magic for the first time."We give her a soft smile."I would date you if you're okay with dating another mare. It doesn't have to be anything serious, but it could be fun for our adventure together."
>>39924110"Clearly they don't understand what they're missing out on. Even if they can't understand your passion, it is something that should be cherished. Your scales and coat do appear well cared for as well.">>39924115Technically, Romans had concrete, and the Key ruins we found are a transposed version of Pompeii (at least in terms of graffiti and some culture), but it wouldn't guarantee it being known in this setting at this time. I get what you're saying about the words being hard to find though.For some reason, reading about the stuff you can do is making me think of a game that I can't remember. Though it also reminds me of two others (that aren't at all the same genre) that come to mind: Streets of Rogue and Shadows of Doubt.>>39924143Feels a little too soon. Thinking Luscinia would be earnest in her compliments, but we've yet to even start traveling with Dawyn, and just got off the mirror with Hannu.
>>39924143>>39924182You raise an eyebrow a bit at this."Clearly they don't understand what they're missing out on. Even if they can't understand your passion, it is something that should be cherished. Your scales and coat do appear well cared for as well."She blinks at this and blushes a bit, not entirely prepared for the compliment you gave her."...T-Thanks?"You give her a soft smile at this."Forgive me if I find that hard to believe. Those ruby eyes and pretty scales make you a very attractive mare. Also, your excitement is very infectious, it's cute, actually. It reminds me when I was a filly learning magic for the first time."Her blush grows at this, her ruby eyes darting around at the town around the four of you as she processes your words. After several seconds of this she calms herself down enough to respond."T-Thank you, I-I can get a bit excited at times. I s-suppose that might be s-something we have in c-common then," She stammers; pausing as she looks around, "...A-Are we suppose to leave soon?"At this you look up the sky. Guessing by the position of the sun it was getting close to that time.What do you do?
>>39924295"I suppose it is."We glance over at Smoke and Tanssija."Shall we be off?"Double check that we have everything, including our wayward soul in disguise, before heading off to see Copper and help him get a move on.
>>39924353"I suppose it is." You nod; standing up from the floor.You look over at Smoke and Tanssija. Smoke was just watching Tanssija as she finishes up her conversation with Hannu, saying goodbye and pressing the gem on the mirror in to end the conversation."Done talking with him?" Smoke asks."Yeah, he wished us luck on our journey and told us to try and be safe.""Shall we be off then?" You ask the two of them.The both nod. You quickly go over everything to make sure you weren't forgetting something, including your little wayward soul in disguise, and then set off now with an extra member to the team.>Dawyn Crisrinn has joined your party! Her stats and inventory have been added to the inventory pastebin: https://pastebin.com/aKksRQdcIt doesn't take long to reach Copper who was just finishing up with attaching the Yascheritsas to their harnesses. He makes sure that a belt is tight before turning to the four of you."Alright, they're ready to go," He breathes; looking over at Dawyn, "I assume this is our newest member for the road.""Yep, I'm Dawyn," Dawyn introduces herself; extending a claw out to Copper, "You're Copper right?""Copper Cut," He confirms; hesitating for a moment before shaking her claw and quickly putting his hoof down when it was done, "Did they tell you where this caravan is going.""Up to Lychny." She nods.What do you do?
Stopping for the night.Have a good night or day!
>>39924435We nod."The trip will involve us keeping a lookout for any thieves or other dangers on our way. Notify the group if you spot anything.""Now for formations. It's usually smoke and I take a side with Tanssija watching on the roof. Now we have You and Armas with us. What spells do you know?We nibble on our mane."Just one offensive spell it seems... Smoke is physically strong, so your protection spells should provide him with great help if you two get ambushed. I'll take Armas with me then. I have a few spells of my own to buy us some time if we need it. Any objections?">2 iron daggersInteresting since she has a pair of claws too... Then again, they are well manicured. Parish the thought of breaking a claw in combat!Also, her dragon breath ability is a skill right? It doesn't use any magic, and we can use any time in combat correct?
>>39924435We have went over most details, we'll be going down the same route anyway so it makes sense to watch each others backs. Keeping an eye out for bandits and ancient ruins along the way.
>>39924435"There is strength in numbers, and our paths and goals align to an extent. The journey should be about as straightforward as it can get, gods willing.">Cherries + Dragon Tongue + Cute Nerd Archetype... I don't know how that mare hasn't been drowning in mares/stallions, but it really is a shame.>>39924513Seconding!Assuming it's comparable to D&D, the breath attack may be a once/day type attack, though more likely one/battle, or with a cooldown of some sort.>>39924437Morning, Pluto!
>>39925437From what I remember dragon ponies are discriminated against as traitors, or decedents of them anyway. For being on the dragon's side of things.I probably need to reread the lore again but I think that is the gist of it.
>>39924513>>39925437I could have given her the ability to use her claws as weapons, but I've already given her a breath ability and thought that giving her a claw ability would be a bit much unless everyone thinks otherwise. She can use it once per battle, which I've added to the pastebin.I also gave her some maps that I forgot to give her last night. They'll probably make an appearance later.>>39925503It depends on the area as most Ponies in this world don't get along with Dragons at all. The Dragon Ponies are the descendants of the Keys that stayed with the Dragons rather than joining their fellow Keys in the revolt that happened ages ago.>>39924513>>39924870>>39925437You nod in confirmation."There is strength in numbers, and our paths and goals align to an extent. The journey should be about as straightforward as it can get, gods willing. It should just be keeping an eye out for bandits and ancient ruins along the way, so notify the group if you spot anything.""Will do." She nods."Now for formations. It's usually Smoke and I take a side with Tanssija watching the roof. Now we have you and Armas with us. What spells do you know?"She goes over the spells that she knew. She knew a lot of defensive focused spells and one offensive spell. This makes you start to nibble on your mane."Just one offensive spell it seems," You mutter, "...Smoke is physically strong, so your protection spells should provide him with great help if you two get ambushed. I have a few spells of my own to buy us some time if we need it. Any objections?""I don't have any. I can look through my spellbooks to see if there is anything more offensive that I can use later," Dawyn says, "Besides that, I could stay on the roof with Tanssija.""I wouldn't mind that." Tanssija replies."Let's get the formation ready then and get going." Copper says.Tanssija hops up onto the roof and then lowers a hoof down to help Dawyn up. Dawyn takes it and starts trying to climb up, but even with a helping hoof she struggles a bit, her claws trying to find purchase on the wood of the carriage, but just scratching at the wood instead. It takes you and Smoke helping to get her up onto the roof where she turns around with a slight blush."T-Thanks."You and Smoke then take your positions on the side of the carriage. Once Copper had confirmed everyone's place the five of you set off, leaving the stone walls of Lalundzhik and onto the road that snaked northeast to the town of Mineshi, a little under halfway to Sibashikha. As you enter the forest once again Armas takes this moment to speak quietly to you."Glad to see that the forests haven't changed much." He comments; looking around at the trees and brush.What do you do?
>>39926106We cast disguise to hide our mouth movement (assuming it's subtle, otherwise don't bother), and whisper to Armas, our head facing away from the carriage as if our hood doesn't already partially conceal our face."I reckon it has changed more than you think: the majority of trees here would be the grandfoals of those that you last saw, yet they likely retain similar borders, and house many of the same creatures. Perhaps if you've planted any trees, we could visit them some time, to see how they and their family has grown... did you travel beyond the boundary of Alln Lenora often?"
>>39926106"That's surprising. I suppose it's called the Sea of Trees for a reason. You would think the land would have been more urbanized in the past fifteen hundred years. Perhaps there's some magic that keeps the forest protected like in Alln Lenora?"
>>39926187>>39926215You cast Disguise to hide your mouth movement and whisper to Armas, your head facing away from the carriage as if your hood wasn't already partially covering your face."That's surprising. I suppose it's called the Sea of Trees for a reason though. You would think the land would have been more urbanized in the past fifteen hundred years. Perhaps there's some magic that keeps the forest protected like in Alln Lenora?""Maybe," He shrugs, "Or it could be a lack of resources or just the history of the area.""Still, it might've changed more than you think: the majority of trees here would be the grandfoals of those that you last saw, yet they likely retain similar borders, and house many of the same creatures. Perhaps if you've planted any trees, we could visit them some time... did you travel beyond the boundary of Alln Lenora often?""Sometimes, usually just short trips though," He replies, "I certainly don't remember a lot of the surrounding kingdoms and that city we were in, Lalundzhik, wasn't a thing when I was alive."He sighs a bit, continuing to look around."I suppose even if the trees don't seem to change much that civilization will change regardless."He looks back at you."When I was alive Alln Lenora's biggest neighbor at the time was Napul, a large kingdom, probably the strongest that the Sea of Trees had seen since the collapse of Cannor almost a thousand years before, but by the look of things it seemed to have collapsed some point after my death."What do you do?
>>39926468"History has never been my strength, much as the sites and the people of times long past might interest me, but I don't recall a Napul, yet Cannor collapsed almost a thousand years before your time, and it remains just as relevant to the modern era. Strange how that is. Just as strange to think we're closer in time together than that of the Giants and Dragons, more than double the time. What's most irksome is I'm certain I have questions I don't even know to ask you."
>>39926573"History has never been my strength, much as the sites and the people of times long past might interest me, but I don't recall Napul, yet Cannor collapsed almost a thousand years before your time, and it remains just as relevant to the modern era," You shake your head, "Stand how that is. Just a strange to think we're closer in time together than that of the Giants and Dragons, more than double the time.""Just goes to show how influential those empires and races are to remain relevant, even after thousands of years passing since those empires rose and fell.""What's most irksome is I'm certain I have questions I don't even know to ask you.""If you think of any you may ask whenever."You give him a little smile and the conversation dies down after that, silence falling over the group as the five of you continue down the path. The day of travel that passes by is quiet and uneventful, nothing of note happening besides a few other caravans that pass by. As the sun sets the five of you start to think about where to camp for the night. You get a bit lucky though as close to an hour later you find a caravan stop on the side of the road which consisted of a large, flat dirt area that goes into the woods slightly. It was a popular spot as there were several other caravans staying there for the night as well from little traveling and merchant wagons to three military caravan with a small squad of Smochkala soldiers. The caravans stuck to themselves for the most part, but there were Ponies going from caravan to caravan to chat or buy some things from the merchant caravans. Because of how many caravans there already were the five of you end up towards the back of the caravan stop near a babbling creek that was an offshoot of the nearby river some distance into the woods. You were currently finishing up with getting your tent up, hammering in the last wooden pike into the ground before looking over at the others.Tanssija was currently mingling with some of the other caravans while Copper, Smoke, and Dawyn were sitting next to the fire they had just set up. Copper and Smoke were talking with each other waiting for the coals in the fire to get hot enough to cook while Dawyn was contenting herself with reading one of her books next to the fire, the light of the fire reflecting off of her scales a bit. A few of the other caravanners gave her some strange looks as the five of you had rolled in, but they haven't tried anything and Dawyn hadn't seemed to notice the looks.What do you do?
>>39926851Try to subtly study the Ponies eyeing up our Dragon Pony companion, as well as the Ponies interacting with Tanssija with our soul sight, trying to glean their mood, intent, and body language out of the corner of our eye/through our hood. In addition to the various Smochkala soldiers we've spied that have us feeling tense, which is unfortunate with all the ponies we could be watching. Whisper to Armas."Do you feel comfortable getting close enough to easedrop on those Ponies?"Want to suggest laying down next to Dawyn, but knowing how others are feeling first feels important.
>>39926851'It appears Copper isn't the only one that had problems with Dragonponies...'We use our soul sense to see it the caravan groups have any curiosity, worry, or anger.'I might have to stick closely with Dawyn tonight.'We trot up to Dawyn, sitting down next to her."I've never seen so many caravans in one place. I wonder what brought them all together."(Might be too late when I ask, but would like to ask her if she wants to share a tent.)
>>39926851(Did Dawyn ever show off her breath attack like we asked or did that get forgotten? I remember Luscinia being fairly excited about seeing it.) Go to the little babbling brook and gather some water if it's clean enough.>>39927046It seems like she doesn't have her own tent? (Might be a case of her bringing along too many books, and not enough practical items.) She might need to share or perhaps being a dragony means things like the cold really don't effect her.It probably wouldn't hurt to see if she wants to share.
>>39926914>>39927046>>39927125'It appears Copper isn't the only one that had problems with Dragon Ponies...'You look around trying to subtly study the Ponies in the area. Most of the Ponies weren't paying attention to her, doing their own things. The Ponies interacting with Tanssija seemed to be taking her well, the merchant that she was talking with currently seemed content to just chat with her. Your gaze soon settles on the group of Smochkala soldiers, the group of them already making you feel tense despite them just chatting around their own fire. Two of the soldiers were looking in your direction, though they both go back to the conversation around the fire when your eyes meet. Unlike their companions these two seemed a bit worried specifically. The rest of the caravans had their own emotions going on, along with a few that were worried but that could be worry about other things.'I might have to stick closely to Dawyn tonight.'You lean over to Armas and whisper to him."Do you feel comfortable getting close enough to eavesdrop on those Ponies?" You ask.Wordlessly, he nods and floats off into a tree. Once he was gone you wander over to the nearby brook and spend a moment inspecting the water. It looked pretty clean to you, so you gather some up the water up and then trot over to Dawyn. Sitting down next to her causes her ears to flick a bit before she looks up at you."I've never seen so many caravans in one place. I wonder what brought them all together." You comment."Seems like a popular stop on a busy road to me," She shrugs, "Looking at my map this is the only road between Mineshi and Lalundzhik and having more numbers at a stop make it much safer to stop for the night."She sits up from her laying position and stretches, the claws on her hooves extending slightly and her tail straightening before going back to it's original position of being wrapped around her hooves."Seems like a nice place to stop at as well."She then looks around for a moment, a hoof going up to scratch the side of her face with a claw. After a few seconds her eyes widen and she places her hoof back on the ground, looking back at you."Right, you've been patiently waiting to see my breath ability," She remembers; giving you an apologetic smile, "I was about to go on a walk, so you can join me for that and when we get far enough away I can show you then."What do you do?
>>39927271Show her a subtle smile.Don't worry, I didn't come here to attempt to cajole into showing me. Though I would enjoy joining you for your walk so I'll take you up on your offer seeing that would be a bonus.Despite our words as soon as she offers our ears perk up slightly, twitching ever so slightly and we slightly lean in, as clear a display of interest as we'd ever managed before. I was mostly interested in getting to know you a bit better, only so much time to do so and I don't want to miss that chance.
>>39927271Having been content to study her stretching and using her claws for a moment, the edge of our lips are twitch in excitement, though the chance to get away from the soldiers doesn't hurt."I'd quite enjoy both of those; the walk and the demonstration, if it's not too strenuous. Just a moment, so the others aren't surprised by our absence."Get Smoke's (and Armas', if we can see him) attention, so that they can see that we're stepping away for a few moments.Strangely almost disappointed she didn't have any admirers, but I suppose she's likely used to gawkers as is.
>>39927330>>39927362Having been content to study her stretching and use of her claws for a moment, the edge of your lips twitch a bit in excitement, though the chance to get away from the soldiers doesn't hurt. As soon as her offer reaches your ears they perk up slightly, twitching a bit as you lean in a bit, as clear of a display of interest as you've ever given."Don't worry, I didn't come here to attempt to cajole you into showing me. Though I would enjoy joining you for your walk, so I'll take you up on your offer seeing that would be a bonus."She smiles at you and her tail flicks a bit in appreciation."Just one moment please, so the others aren't surprised by our absence."You stand up a bit and wave a bit at Smoke, moving enough that Armas could see as well."What's up?" Smoke asks."Dawyn and I are going to go on a walk for a while.""Fine with me," He nods, "Try not to be gone for too long. It's going to be dark soon."You nod as Dawyn stands up fully, leading you over to the brook where she starts following the river upstream."I was mostly interested in getting to know you a bit better, only so much time to do so and I don't want to miss that chance." You tell her."As long as I get to know you better as well," She looks back at you with a smile, "What did you want to ask?"What do you do?
>>39927575More than a few questions come to mind, especially after a day spent thinking about what to ask her, though more than a few that come to mind, we shut down, on account of not being the type that should be asked of a new friend. With nothing better in mind, we ask of a topic that has been on the back of our mind since this morning."You must receive a lot of questions about your heritage, so let's start a little closer to home: do you have a family? Siblings, parents, aunts and uncles? And do you trace your legacy back to when you were blessed, if that is the correct term?"
>>39927575Nodding our hood we pull back our hood, taking a moment to pull off our helmet before continuing. That would only be fair.

And is there anything pushing you forward other than your own determination?Tanssija introduced me to a new brand of humor, it was a entertaining thing to bond over I'm a bit interesting in knowing what do you find funny?>>39927625Seconding.
>>39927625>>39927642More than a few questions pop up in your mind, especially after a day spent thinking about what to ask her, though more than a few come to mind and you shut down. With nothing really better on your mind, you ask her a simple topic and one that has been on the back of your mind since the morning. Before you do you take your hoof and use it to pull back your hood, also taking a moment to pull off your helmet."That would only be fair. Before I ask anything, if any of it isn't something you're willing to say let me know and I'll ask something else.""Sounds good."As she says this you stop as you notice a bit of a tree root sticking out of the ground, one that was close to tripping you. You step over it and continue."You're doing quite a lot of research, going off on your own is far from the safest thing. Is there a particular goal you're aiming to achieve? I know this is part of your schooling but I'm curious as to where you want to take your accrued knowledge and experience in the future.""My goal is to study the ancient civilizations and bring that knowledge to light," She explains, "Like the Giants, a powerful race that rivaled the Dragons long ago and created The Winds of Magic, and by extension, us. But besides that and what the Dragons have on them, we barely know anything about them, their civilization, or magic. It's my dream to bring those things back and see what we can learn from them.""Tanssija introduced me to a new brand of humor, it was a entertaining thing to bond over. I'm a bit interested in knowing what do you find funny?""Oh," She mutters; then giggling to herself a little, "I've always kinda liked jokes that set something up but the punchline is purposely not funny. I also like jokes that have a story that goes with them.""You must receive a lot of questions about your heritage, so let's start a little closer to home: do you have a family? Siblings, parents, aunts and uncles?""Yeah, I have my Dad, Mom, and my younger brother, Cluummesh. My Dad is a fisher, Mom stays at home, and Cluummesh seems interested in following Dad's hoofsteps.""Do you trace your legacy back to when you were blessed, if that is the correct term?""Yep, we even remember the Dragon that blessed our family thousands of years ago: Gondram, a Brown Dragon."She looks back at you."What about you? You have a family?"What do you do?
>>39927753"Not in the traditional sense. I was adopted by two unicorn wizards that took me as their apprentice. They did raise me, but made it clear they weren't my parents and insisted I call them my mentors. I don't know anyone from my biological family."
>>39927753We get a bit introspective for a moment."Not in the way you'd imagine. I had a mentor and his understudy, both father figures of sorts, in vastly different ways. My biological family is unknown to me, though between my own research and a trusted source, I know I've a few leads."'If you can call a goddess verifying both practically bovine teats and stripes are inherited as being leads in the traditional sense. Thank you, Morena.'We add a silent prayer, thankful to have the information at all, even if the task of finding them won't be simple."I anticipate that encountering them again will either be quite difficult, or unexpectedly easy. I dreamt of meeting a twin, which brought the matter to mind.""Is fishing a common occupation? I understand you live on an isle/the coast, so it's a natural one, but given your ties to dragons, whom often occupy deserts and are associated with fire, I just wonder if some degree of irrational fear might exist on a subconscious level."
Stopping for the night.Have a good night or day!Finally got some applications out to a few interesting jobs for the summer. Don't know when or if I'll get anything back, but hopefully I get something. They all seem to advertise flexible schedules as well, so hopefully whatever I get, if I get anything, allows me to keep my Thursdays open.
>>39927753We pause for a few seconds thinking on how to put our words. A familiar pang of pain going through out heart.That is a touch complicated. I'm not going to go through the whole situation as it is a bit long winded and sad, I was adopted young and I don't remember my biological family members but I hope they're doing well. I was brought in and trained under the oversight of my step father, it wasn't quite like that at first but he grew into the position over time. I could potentially have biological family out there, I'm interested in meeting them as I have quite a few questions I'd like to ask them. I've got my mother to thank for some very unique personal traits apparently.'I hope this isn't too much to unload on her or going into too much detail. Maybe a joke to lighten the mood?'I have a bed, but do not sleep. I have a mouth, but do not eat. What am I?Pause for effect.Tired and hungry>>39927814Seconding. Less information might be better here.>>39927839Seconded as well.

>>39927814>>39927839>>39927861You pause for a few seconds thinking about how to put it into words. A familiar pang going through your heart."Not in the way you'd imagine.

I was adopted by two Unicorn wizards that took me as their apprentice. They did raise me, but made it clear they weren't my parents and insisted I call them my mentors."As you speak Dawyn's curious expression turns a bit sad. Likely not the answer she was expecting."Oh," She mutters, "You don't know your parents at all?"You nod a bit."My biological family is unknown to me, though between my own research and a trusted source, I know I have a few leads."'If you call a goddess verifying both practically bovine teats and stripes are inherited as being leads in the traditional sense. Thank you, Morena.'"I'm interested in meeting them wherever they are as I have quite a few questions to ask them. I've got my mother to thank for some very unique traits apparently. I anticipate that encountering them again will either be quite difficult, or unexpectedly easy. I dreamt of meeting a twin, which brought the matter to mind.""Dreams can be weird," She nods a bit, "Who knows though, maybe you do have a twin out there somewhere.""Is fishing a common occupation? I understand you live on an isle, so it's a natural one, but given your ties to Dragons, whom often occupy deserts and are associated with fire, I just wonder if some degree of irrational fear might exist on a subconscious level.""Not many Dragon Ponies have a fear of water, a few have even been blessed by Sea Dragons," She replies, "And fishing is a common occupation in Arzakhtinsk. It pays well enough on The Isles as there are plenty of fish to catch."She turns back to look at you again."You know much about Dragons or Dragon Ponies?"As the two of you walk the brook you were next to starts to slowly widen and you begin to hear the sounds of a rushing river. You were probably close to the nearby river.What do you do?
>>39929397'Sounds a little fast to bathe, though it must be quite a sight.'Dip a hoof into the water to test the temperature before briefly eyeing our also cloaked companion, putting our analytical mind to use to visualize her body, a lot of blanks filled with assumptions."Not nearly as much as I'd like to. Biologically, I can make a few educated guesses based on my own study, and it's not hard to deduce a few things based on observations, but there are many unknowns still. Culturally, I've only had books to go off of, often limited and biased as well. Dragons themselves are even more of an unknown, but that is part of what is so fascinating to me about yourself and them as species. Why do you ask?"
>>39929397"Not too much. I met a Boar who fought Dragon Ponies, but he didn't mention much other than his clan(?) helped war against them. Are Boars and Dragon Ponies enemies?(I don't remember the clan name. I think it involved a black sun? Or was that the clan that attacked Alln Lenora?)
>>39929464>>39929476'Sounds a little fast to bathe in, though it must be quite a sight.'As you move you dip a hoof into the water of the brook to test the temperature which wasn't too bad, a little on the chilly side. You remove your hoof as you briefly eye your cloaked companion, her own cloak and dress hiding much of her body but that doesn't stop your mind from visualizing it though it has a lot of blanks to fill with assumptions. It was hard to see, but it seemed like she was a bit thin."Not nearly as much as I'd like to. Biologically, I can make a few educated guesses based on my own study, and it's not hard to deduce a few things based on observations, but there are many unknowns still," You say, "Culturally, I've only had books to go off of, often limited and biased as well. Dragons themselves are even more of an unknown but that is part of what is so fascinating to me about yourself and them as species. Why do you ask?""Just wondering." She shrugs."I did meet a Boar who fought Dragon Ponies, but he didn't mention much other than his clan helped. Are Boars and Dragon Ponies enemies?""More like Boars and Dragons," She says, "Boars don't like them and by extension they don't like us. It's similar to Ponies, but they are way more willing to act on it and their religion ties into the hatred as well. The Dragon certainly don't do anything to make the Boars like them though."She shakes her head a bit."Have you seen anything interesting on your travels so far?"What do you do?
>>39929620We found an undiscovered section of the keyian ruins on our journey here and we got involved in unraveling a conspiracy against the king of Alln Lenora.
>>39929620"The food." We say in our dryest monotone without elaborating.After a moment, we smirk and continue with less of a monotone."While it has been the best food I've had in my life, I would have to say it's the people I've met. I mostly lived a secluded life, so meeting so many unique people has been really exciting."
>>39929620"Setting aside endless trees, innumerable interesting ponies, and monsters that eat foals? Some Key ruins, complete with some, colorful graffiti from the period, providing descriptive and visual aid of what two stallions might do together."We blush a little, the fond memory tugging at our lips."I did have the chance to see Alln Lenora, from the bathhouses to the Paavola. It's quite lovely."Toying with our collar unconsciously, our cheeks remain lightly tinged from the 'sights' we remember, though we can't help a little smile on our lips as Hannu springs to mind. Releasing our collar, we look at her."Any interesting sights or experiences yourself? I haven't even seen the sea, so you must have a whole host of experiences upon myself."
>>39929728>>39929734>>39929777"The food."You say in your driest monotone without elaborating. After you hear some giggles from her you smirk and continue with less of a monotone."While it has been the best food I've had in my life, I would have to say it's the people I've met. I mostly lived a secluded life, so meeting so many unique people has been really exciting. Innumerable interesting Ponies, and monsters that eat foals? We found an undiscovered section of Keyian ruins on our journey here and we got involved in unraveling a conspiracy against the king of Alln Lenora."Toying with your collar unconsciously, your cheeks become slightly tinged as you remember the 'sights' there, though you can't help but have a little smile on your lips as Hannu springs to mind once more. Releasing your collar, you look over at Dawyn."Any interesting sighs or experiences yourself? I haven't even seen the sea, so you must have a whole host of experiences.""The sea was a sight I grew up with," She nods, "Well, I got to see the city of Cannor itself which was quite impressive even if some parts of the city have fallen into disrepair, a bit of the wider Cannor Mainland. My favorite was a Halflinger Hillock that I stayed a few days in after getting an injury, which is a story in of itself. They're a very hospitable folk, made sure I was comfortable and healing well. I wanted so much to repay them, but apparently helping out with the minor, but to them major, rat problem was payment enough."She giggles a little to herself."I'll have to pay them a visit on my way back."What do you do?
>>39929915Our eyes sparkle a little as her recounting brings the thought of Halflinger home cooking to mind, something we'd previously discounted as hyperbole, but in our food adventure, somehow overlooked.'Note to self, help Halflingers whenever possible, so that I may experience their hospitality for myself.'"If half of what I've heard and read is correct, I'd be insulted by proxy if you didn't. A hearty meal is quite the boon after some time in the cold, as I understand."Flick on our soul sight, both to check Dawyn, and the surrounding area.
>>39929959Your eyes sparkle a bit as her recounting brings the thought of Halflinger home cooking to mind, something you once had discounted as hyperbole, but in your food adventure you had somehow overlooked it.'Note to self, help Halflingers whenever possible, so that I may experience their hospitality for myself.'"If half of what I've heard and read is correct, I'd be insulted by proxy if you didn't. A hearty meal is quite the boon after some time in the cold, as I understand.""Definitely," She nods, "Also nice after a long day of work as well."After a bit more trotting the two of you reach the start of the brook where it branches off from the river. The area of the river the two of you ended up at was a rapid, white water cascading over a mess of large rocks that goes a way, the river itself probably thirty feet wide. At the start of the brook though the water was considerably calmer, the bottom being sand rather than the mess of rocks the river was pounding over. Dawyn looks around at this before nodding to herself."This'll do for the demonstration, just don't want it near a bunch of people trying to enjoy their night after traveling," She explains, "If I were you I would stand behind me."What do you do?
>>39930136Stepping behind her, we glance at what we can see of her wings and tail beside us before facing forward, readying our journal and some charcoal to take in both her ability and herself, making some starting reference sketches to start things off."I am ready."Was gonna ask about contaminating the water, but gonna assume that is not a worry.
>>39930136Hang on for one moment, let me lay out two items first then I'll take up a position behind you.Putting a hoof into our bag we withdraw first one of our regular non enchanted jars then second one of our metal pitons. Moving forwards we open the jar and set it down nestled in a depression so it wont tip over and the piton nearby it.I'm rather curious what your breath is capable of, whether the metal or clay will be effected and if so by how much, I wish I had some glass wear I was more willing to part with.Moving back we step around her moving behind her, ending up standing just to a touch to the left of directly behind her. Bringing out our book we get ready to write as much down about it as possible.I'm ready when you are.
>>39930136We heed her warning and back away and to the side to get a clear view of this ability.
>>39930257>>39930282Luscinia starts writing and swiftly becomes frustrated, then sets her book on top of Dawyn's flanks uses them as a support.
>>39930257>>39930282>>39930284"Hang on for one moment, let me lay out two items first then I'll take up a position behind you."You trot forward and withdraw one of your regular jars and then one of your metal pitons. You lean the jar up against an exposed root and the piton nearby it."I'm rather curious what your breath is capable of, whether the metal or clay will be effected and if so by how much, I wish I had some glass wear I was more willing to part with."You then head back over to her and step behind her, standing just a touch to the left of directly behind her so that you could see her ability clearly. You take out your journal and some charcoal ready to write what you observe down."I'm ready.""Got it!"Dawyn spends a few seconds staring ahead, studying the area before planting her hooves on the ground in a wide stance. As you watch you notice her horns begin to glow with a dark green color, a glow that is taken up by the front of her throat as well. Her wings then flare out as her mouth opens.*SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS*There is a loud, rough hissing sound as a green liquid is sprayed out of her mouth with great force, reaching quite a distance with it. Dawyn forms it down into a more controlled cone, moving her head slightly as she covers the foliage in front of her with the liquid. It goes like this for a little over five seconds before it starts to weaken and then eventually cease altogether, the Dragon Pony mare left panting a bit as a bit of the liquid continues to drip from her maw, eventually lifting a hoof up to wipe it away.Her breath had quite the impact on the woods in front of her, steam rising up from wherever her breath landed. The dirt had turned from a light brown to a almost black color, the green grass poking out in areas becoming a light brown or disappearing, many of the plants and bushes had lost a lot of their leaves and even some branches. Where the cone had hit a tree it's bark had melted away, one tree even getting a chunk of itself melted off. The clay jar you had placed down did okay, but it now had cracks going over it's surface, the metal piton you had placed had been corroded away in half.What do you do?
>>39930509We stare wide eyed for several moments as we almost break the charcoal in our grasp, getting back to our note taking and drawing, trying to capture the devastation, power, and strength behind herself and her attack through words and drawing as quickly as we can, producing an epic side view of head and neck as she sprays acid arcing through the air."How taxing was that? You didn't hurt yourself, did you? How quickly does the corrosive material dissipate and neutralize?"'I don't want to imagine what that would do when turned on someone living... If she breathed on herself, would that be a sterilizing bath?'We don't move away, but caution dictates that we don't move closer for the moment, even as we watch the slightly strained mare with some concern.
>>39930509Our eyes go a little wide as we stare at the results. Quickly in a rush we start to note down whatever we can from how wide an angle her breath spilled from her mouth and the glow from her horns and throat that act as a warning sign to the amount of devastation it can wreak and what it can do to organic and metal items.That is truly impressive, you don't feel any pain from that? Are you immune to it's own effects? Walking around until we're before her.Can I have a look inside your mouth? Any other being would have devastating damage done from something like that, I would like to see if there is a visible difference that protects you. 'I probably should have asked to see before hand so I could tell if there was much difference before and after.'
>>39930568>>39930616Your eyes go wide as you stare at the results of her breath, your charcoal almost breaking in your grasp. In a rush you tear your eyes away to get back to note taking and drawing what you saw, determining that the cone was twenty feet wide at it's widest point while also noting the glow from her horns and throat that act as an obvious warning sign to the amount of devastation it could wreck, the drawing you make producing an epic side view of her head and neck as she sprays acid through the air."That was truly impressive! How taxing was that? You didn't hurt yourself, did you? How quickly does the corrosive material dissipate and neutralize? Are you immune to it's own effects?""It would be very strange if I wasn't immune to what I could shoot out my mouth." She says.You study her for a moment, finding that the place that the acid had dripped down from the side of her mouth left behind no damage to her at all."I'm fine, takes a bit out of me so I can't do it often. For the materials itself it takes a few minutes for it to neutralize."'I don't want to imagine what that would do when turned on someone living... If she breathed on herself, would that be a sterilizing bath?'You nod at this, caution dictating that you don't move closer to the area that was effected regardless. You do trot closer to her, stopping when you get in front of her."Can I have a look inside your mouth? Any other being would have devastating damage done from something like that, I would like to see if there is a visible difference that protects you.""If you want to, though I don't think you'll find anything."She opens her mouth to let you look, your eyes going over the inside of her mouth trying to find any damages. You don't see any though, the flesh of her throat and mouth showed no damages, her gums were fine, and her teeth showed no corrosive damage.What do you do?
>>39930855'Must be some sort of passive magic that protects her. Probably means her teeth are among the healthiest on the continent.'Scribbling down some basic notes as our eyes wander over her pronounced canines, and bifurcated tongue, we retreat and stand to our full height after a few moments, the non combat uses uses of an acid breath and acid resistance quite interesting."I wish I had something even half as impressive to show you, but quite frankly, anything remotely of compare would be too subtle to show off like that. I'm strong for my build, though I've not tested my limits... Would it be best to neutralize corrosive residue with water before we return? Don't want to damage the books. The reaction would probably be exothermic though."Nibbling on a lock of our mane, we stare into space, thoughts full of wonder, though we shake our head and look back at Dawyn."Apologies, it's just... you're amazing, Dawyn. For this, and everything else you're capable of beyond bloodline."Can picture her accidentally melting her clothes/armor off.>>39930333Meant to say this is amusing, but I can picture Luscinia slipping under Dawyn on her back and saying that it's the best viewing angle
>>39930855... I can't spot a hint of damage. Pulling back we nibble lightly on our mane for a few moments.Nor anything that would have protected your mouth from being under the same effects as anything else would under that sort of concentrated assault.Perhaps it's part of the magic, are you immune to similar breath abilities from other brown dragony, or is it only your own?Blink and blush slightly before letting out a small sigh.I'm sorry if these questions are a touch strange, this is fairly enthralling for me and I can get caught up in the excitement slightly too easily. To take a step back and explain my reasoning I'm asking about your immunity to it is because I wanted to definitively know if you were resistant the ill effects of the ability naturally or a side effect of the ability itself was to protect you from it when used.For all the world it seems as if be it because of your natural inherent magic, or some part of your biology you're unaffected by it. Both possibilities are utterly fascinating in their own way. It broadens what I thought was possible.>>39930948Seconding!>Can picture her accidentally melting her clothes/armor off.>Dawyn walks down the road chatting with Luscinia when an itch starts in the back of her snout.>After a moment she lifts a claw to cover her snout and a moment before as she inhales her horns and throat glow green then lets out the cutest sneeze, there is a pause for a second then a hissing and crackling.>All down her front is washed with acid, clothes and armor melting away becoming more scantily clade by the second.>She blushes hard covering herself as she lets out a frustrated groan.>"Not again..."
>>39930999Seconding, and nice!>Due to the way her magic interacts with her body, and to a lesser extent, her clothes, often times it doesn't melt properly/fully, instead becoming a skintight second layer of leather and metal, when it's not reduced to skimpy bikini armor>Technically she can melt it all off, but it's extremely taxing, and there is rarely a private place that is suitable for an acid bath>Leading her to now, with her hugging a tree for dear life as her new friend pries off the 'suit' with relative ease, the material on her tail giving both of them trouble, as it often does>She just has to hold on until Silver takes care of the->"NNNNnnnnngggg~... We will not speak of this.">It was almost worse than saying nothing: she could HEAR Silver grinning behind her, causing her to shiver, and definitely not because of the hooves returning to her tail

She nods.You blink a bit and then blush, letting out a small sigh."I'm sorry if these questions are a touch strange, this is fairly enthralling for me and I can get caught up in the excitement slightly too easily," You apologize, "To take a step back and explain my reasoning, I'm asking about your immunity to it because I wanted to definitively know if you were resistant to the ill effects of the ability.

I know I have a few for you, but those can wait.""I wish I had something even half as impressive to show you, but quite frankly, anything remotely of compare would be too subtle to show off like that. I'm strong for my build, though I've not tested my limits... Would it be best to neutralize corrosive residue with water before we return? Don't want to damage the books.

She replies.Nibbling on a lock of your mane once more, you stare off into space, thoughts full of wonder. You shake your head and look back at Dawyn."Apologies, it's just... you're amazing, Dawyn. For this, and everything else you're capable of beyond bloodline."A blush explodes across her face as her eyes widen, her tail going still and wings spreading out from her sides slightly. She quickly looks down at the ground, blush still very apparent."T-Thank you, b-but this is n-nothing... I-It's just what I c-can do!"What do you do?
Stopping for the night.Have a good night or day!I'll be starting late tomorrow, I have a job interview I think, they called it a meeting tomorrow and I don't know how long it'll go for.
>>39931173Perhaps but it is still special to me. The sun rises every day, but that doesn't make the first one you watch any less astounding. Say what you will but don't doubt yourself I don't think I'll forget this any time soon, that you were willing to humor my questions means a great deal to me. You ability is only a small part of it, your willingness to help me learn is something to truly appreciate. We bow our head to her a little, dipping our head forwards just enough for some strands of our mane to fall back in front of our face from behind our ear.I hope to return the favor, you said you have questions for me? I'll answer them to the best of my abilities, no matter whatever your questions may be.
>>39931173"That may be, but it's you, and what makes you unique. I'm very fortunate to have met you, Dawyn.""Fair is fair. I'm willing to answer as many questions as you wish, however I should mention I never grew up with Earth Ponies, so my knowledge is limited to personal experiences and what I've read."
>>39931233Morning, Pluto!And good luck with that interview!
>>39929040Damn this is a fun little ride. Gotta love it.You know what, I could completely see Luscinia being utterly oblivious as to the purpose of anything less obvious then a dildo.>Luscinia looks down at the ball and strap, the black leather somewhat appealing to her with the red of the attached sphere.>'It seems so... Simple? How does it work? If it's so effective why don't Tanssija and Dawyn use their own?'>Luscina's eyes widen and she sucks in a little breath as her cheeks take on a rosy hue.>"Did they see me holding my head this morning? That's a little awkward, but still nice of them to notice and be so concerned. It's a remedy for headaches?" >Picking up the item by the strap with her hoof she flipped it over feeling the edges of the item.>'Hmm... Thinking back on it they both seemed very tired, perhaps I should repay their kindness with one of their own each tomorrow. There was even a ring one, I bet Dawyn could even use her breath ability through it if I gave it a protective coating.'>Smiling pleasantly to herself she straps the device around her head before going off walking around camp completing a few errands before bed.
>>39931233Hope the interview goes well.
>>39931173Watching the subtle (and not so subtle) body language of her unfamiliar appendage is as rewarding as ever, especially with her adorable reaction, even as we almost miss it as we reassure her."'What you can do', is a feat of biological and magical marvel. What you can do might not feel too different from simply breathing, but it is worth every bit of recognition and awe, and sharing that sight with me was something I appreciate deeply. You, are extraordinary, not just for what you can do, but for how you can treat it so casually, and still have the curiosity and wonder to pursue and explore long lost ruins.">>39932429(Assuming there is a caravan of strangers unfamiliar with Luscinia) Imagining the rest of the caravan simply either writes off Luscinia's behavior as a very open and kinky mare or the oddball of the group (every group has at least one), or Smoke deals with a few rumors and questions the following day, being dreadfully confused.
Well, I got the job!>>39931308>>39931606>>39932669Watching the subtle and not so subtle body language of her unfamiliar appendage is as rewarding as ever, especially mixed with her absolutely adorable reaction."That may be, but it's you, what makes you unique, and it is still special to me. The sun rises every day, but that doesn't make the first one you watch any less astounding. 'What you can do', is a feat of biological and magical marvel. What you can do might not feel too different from simply breathing, but it is worth every bit of recognition and awe, and sharing that sight with me was something I appreciate deeply. You, are extraordinary, not just for what you can do, but for how you can treat it so casually, and still have the curiosity and wonder to pursue and explore long lost ruins. I'm very fortunate to have met you, Dawyn."You then bow your head a little, dipping your her forward enough for some strands of your mane to fall back in front of your face. When you look back up you see that Dawyn was now a blubbing mess, her face completely red and she looked like she was about to grow a shell and crawl into it. After watching her for several seconds you decide you should probably stop before she shuts down completely."I'm willing to answer as many questions as you wish, however I should mention I never grew up with Earth Ponies, so my knowledge is limited to personal experiences and what I've read.""Y-Yeah," She nods; her brain slowly recovering, "Uh... I-Is it true h-how strong E-Earth Ponies are?"What do you do?
>>39933092We raise an eyebrow, curious as well, even as she continues to be cute."How strong are Earth Ponies purported to be? Granted, I'm a... perhaps undernourished, formerly-hermited spell castor, but I believe myself to be of similar strength to Smoke Tree... you haven't either of us without armor yet."Standing by her side, we pull back our cloak over our shoulder to place a forelegs next to hers, stripping off any armor that hinders immediate comparison. (Letting her feel/study our leg?)"I've had few chances to test my strength empirically, but I really should. There wasn't too much manuel labor when I was studying."'Excluding the exhuming and transportion of the occasional cadaver and coffin'Check around for any large rocks we can mess with.Congrats!
>>39933092Maybe she can grip our hoof and we can push against each other to compare our strength directly.
>>39933092I intended to use this with Tanssija, but it fits here. Since mana has been accepted into the canon, I'm using my own head canon on how it work if that's alright. "It is. I assume you know a lot about mana, correct? Since we don't have horns, our mana flows down our legs and into our hooves. And as such-"We slip underneath Dawyn and lift her up on our back without much trouble. "-Our strength is enhanced and doing something like lifting someone off of the ground is simple."
>>39933092'She seems to have a weak spot for such intense and direct praise, I should probably keep such things a little less potent as to not overwhelm her.'Looking into her eyes we nod our head then pause for a moment to think.Earth ponies are strong, I don't know how strong you have heard but among ponies we have quite the proportional strength, with stamina to back it up. In spite of my own rather thin frame and lack of any dedicated strength training I could pull fully laden carts by myself. I could probably carry two full grown ponies on my back. I can only imagine that a member my kind who was more dedicated to physical effort would make my own strength seem insignificant. Lifting up a hoof towards her we offer it before the dragony.If you would care to test your own strength against mine to see for yourself just how strong I am you may. Nice! Good on you.
>>39933209>>39933264>>39933285>>39933339You raise an eyebrow at her, a bit curious as well, even as she continues to be cute.'She seems to have a weak spot for such intense and direct praise, I should probably keep such things a little less potent as to not overwhelm her.'"How strong are Earth Ponies purported to be? Granted, I'm a... perhaps undernourished, formerly-hermited spell caster, but I believe myself to be of similar strength to Smoke Tree.""Well, there aren't any Earth Ponies in Arzakhtinsk so a lot of it was probably exaggerated, but there is a lot of stories of Earth Ponies lifting heavy things like boulders or entire trees, even a dead Dragon with little issue."You nod a bit at this and think. Even if you didn't know any Earth Ponies you had chances to examine the cadavers of the few that happened to be near Master's tower, so you do know a bit about the strength of Earth Ponies."Earth Ponies are strong, among the other Ponies we have quite the proportional strength, with stamina to back it up. In spite of my own rather thin frame and lack of any dedicated strength training I could pull fully laden carts by myself.""Does that mean Earth Ponies can indeed lift a Dragon?" Dawyn asks excitedly; her eyes seeming to sparkle a bit."Not quite," You shake your head; unable to stop a small smile at her excitement, "I assume you know a lot about mana, correct? Since we don't have horns, our mana flows down our legs and into our hooves. And as such-""Eep!"She lets out a surprised squeak as you slip underneath Dawyn and easily lift her up onto you back without issue."-Our strength is enhanced and doing something like lifting someone off of the ground is simple.""Fascinating!" She smiles; slipping off of you."I've had few chances to test my strength empirically, but I really should. there wasn't too much manual labor when I was studying."'Excluding the exhuming and transportation of the occasional cadaver and coffin.""Let's test it then! We're in a good place for it so we can start with..."She begins to look around, her head swiveling around. After a good ten seconds she looks over at the start of the brook where a small, angular boulder poked out of the calm water, probably around thirty inches in diameter."We can start with that boulder!"She then canters off to get it, splashing down into the water without much of a care as the water goes halfway up her legs. She makes her way over and once she reaches the rock she starts trying to pull it out, but she obviously doesn't make any progress at all. She keeps trying though until-"Wah!"-It slips from her grasp which causes her to tumble back and into the water with a splash. She comes back up less than a second later, but she was already completely soaked.What do you do?
>>39933501Giggling heartily, we follow her into the water (leaving our bag, hopefully she did the same), a little bit of mirth in our voice as we help her up."Are you well? Not too cold, is it? You can use my tent to change once we're done here. For now, perhaps I'll be able to..."Pressing our hooves against the boulder, we check how slippery it is, and take our time in finding a good grip before committing any strength to it.Assuming we rear up onto our hind legs, I can see her getting a glimpse of things. Or our bra getting a little wet in the water.
>>39933501We gallop next to her, ignoring the water to help our friend."Are you alright?"We inspect her to any scrapes or bruises and use Minor Healing on her."You got a little too eager there. At least we know the boulder is firmly stuck in the riverbed, or a part of an even bigger rock underneath."
>>39933501We shake our head but our smile doesn't lessen.'If that rock is buried into the soil of the riverbed at all there is no telling how large it actually is.'Lifting up our cloak we fold it over and tuck it in a bit so it won't get wet, exposing a good bit of our legs. Our bra also peaks out just a hint though we can't tell from our own angle and without a mirror. We also remove our own bags setting them down on the ground.Are you alright? I'm curious now, do you not feel the cold? This far north it is getting rather chilly.Stepping into the river being a bit slower and more careful than Dawyn had been we reach her and wrap a hoof around her middle, pulling her out of the water we walk her over to the river bank and set her down to let. Moving back over to the rock we size it up.Lets see... Squatting low, we reach into the river to get as firm a grip we can around the base of the rock hugging it to our chestplate tightly. Then We tense our hind legs spreading them apart a bit wider and start to lift pulling backwards bit by bit, tilting back as we try hoisting the rock and put in more effort.>>39933681Seconding!If she did bring her bags she might have to borrow some of our clothes. It'll be a pain drying her books though.>>39933711I like the sentiment but it's probably a bit of an overreaction.
Got off my ass and finally got to work on the Diamond Dogs and Gigas in the lore.>https://pastebin.com/M0kTrrNc>>39933681>>39933711>>39933744You shake your head and giggle at the sight. Good thing she had the foresight to keep her bag on land.'If that rock is buried into the soil of the riverbed at all there is no telling how large it actually is.'Lifting up your cloak you fold it over and tuck it in a bit so that it wouldn't get wet from the brook, exposing a good bit of your legs and causing your bra to poke out a tiny bit though you couldn't tell. You remove your bags as well before stepping into the water and trotting over to her, helping her to stand back up."Are you alright? I'm curious now, do you not the feel the cold? This far north it is getting rather chilly.""I can feel it, but it's not too bad yet," She replies, "Thanks for helping me up."You nod as you spend a moment inspecting her. You couldn't see any scrapes, though there were a few bruises on her back that you easily take care of with a bit of healing."You got a little too eager there," You tell her, "You can use my tent to change once we're done here. At least we know the boulder is firmly stuck in the riverbed, or a part of an even bigger rock underneath.""Think you can pull it out?" She asks.Before answering you wrap a hoof around her middle and bring her to the river bank, getting her onto dry land."Perhaps, let's see..."You then move back over to the rock, sizing it up from different angles. It was a bit slippering, but it was jagged enough that there were a few places where you could get a good grip on it. Squatting down a bit, you reach into the river and get a good grip on it. You then tense your hind legs, spreading them apart a bit as you start to lift and pull back. You could feel it shift a bit in the dirt, moving through the wet soil bit by bit. After a bit of trying you get it move enough that you are able to pull it free from the dirt and water, five feet of extra rock exposing itself along with the mud that was now caked to it.Once you rip it out you hear some clapping from Dawyn. The boulder was very much on the heavy side, but it wasn't too bad and you would be able to carry it to the bank.What do you do?
>>39934006We went through all of the trouble of pulling it out, so we might as well bring it back.
>>39934006We start hauling that sucker over to the riverbank, setting it down with a heavy thud and letting the half ton of rock fall to the ground on it's side. It seems that's not my limit, how was that? I can't account for how much more difficult friction and the suction effect made things but I did get it out. Now then, what would you like me to try next?We lift a hoof and start doing some minor stretches, warming up our muscles a bit before we over stress them.(Holy crap. I had no idea Luscinia was that strong.)
>>39934006"Huh. I guess I had more in me than I thought." We deadpan as we carry the boulder to dry land.(Wanna write more, but don't want to be late.Good job on getting the job btw! Forgot to mention it sooner. I'm glad things went smoothly for you!)
>>39934006Use the stone in place of the legs holding it we use it like a crutch ever few steps to keep our balance as we hobble it over towards Dawyn not used to essentially walking on two legs.I am curious what kind of tales you heard that would involve an earth pony carrying a dead dragon, I'd love to hear it some time. I've never really... Shown off before? I'm not sure that's quite the correct term but it is somewhat of a rush.
>>39934025>>39934085>>39934120>>39934137Might've made the rock way too big. Oh well."Huh. I guess I had more in me than I thought." You deadpan to yourself.Using the stone in place of the legs holding it, you hold it like a crutch to keep your balance as you haul the sucker over to the riverbank, setting it down in front of Dawyn with a heavy thump as she looks at it in awe."It seems that's not my limit, how was that?""By the gods, that has to be the size of a large ball!""I am curious what kind of tales you heard that would involve an Earth Pony carrying a dead Dragon, I'd love to hear it some time. I've never really... shown off before? I'm not sure that's quite the correct term but it is somewhat of a rush," You say, "I can't account for how much more difficult the friction and suction made things but I did get it out. Now then, what would you like me to try next?"You lift a hoof and start doing some minor stretches, the Dragon Pony mare staring at you for a moment before looking around."Uh, I'm not sure..." She mutters; trailing off as she looks back at you, "That didn't hurt you, right?"Your hooves do hurt just a tiny bit, but you did just grab a very rough rock so it'll probably go away after a minute.What do you do?
>>39934184"Some light abrasions, no doubt because my hooves are used to pages, not rock. I may have to start doing some sort of routine: my body type may not change majorly, but if I can supplement my magic enhanced strength with muscle, I could likely surprise many ponies. I may need to practice implement it more effectively in combat..."Placing our hooves atop the rock, we stretch our hindlegs and back, much of our hindlegs and underbelly being obscured by the rock (preventing a good look while giving her a chance to catch a glimpse?) Letting out a sigh, we circle around rock to our still dripping companion."Alright, I believe we've disrupted the local environment enough, how about we head back? I can carry your things, if you'd prefer. And the offer to use my tent still stands."'Perhaps Armas or Tanssija will have learned something juicy while we were away.'So Luscinia won't be carrying the team on her back, or be worrying about breaking Hannu's hips next time she sees him? Bummer. In actuality, the rock might not be that dense (relatively speaking), and it would be hard to get our strength down to an exact number.
>>39934184Not anything major, just the roughness of the rock combined with it's weight wore on me a little. But I'll be fine, I likely won't even feel it in a minute or two. We roll our ankles back and forth not minding the fading pain.If you're lacking for ideas I could try one of your stories, I've done the rock one that leave two. I doubt I could pull a full grown tree, perhaps a smaller younger one thought I'm not sure how impressive it'd be. We smile slyly as we joke. Or a dead dragon. I could carry you back to camp, you're enough dragon for me. Though I hope you won't mind lacking the dead part of it.I just did a quick calculation, at 30 centimeters in diameter and 8 feet long (The three extra was just a rough guess given how the water went halfway up Dawyn's legs and the rock was visible at the surface) ended up at around 1000 pounds, or 470 kilograms. Just under half a ton. There is definitely some give and take, the calculation was real simple and rough but it is funny.>>39934271Seconding! Doubly so on the stretching.
>>39934271>>39934282"Not anything major, some light abrasions, no doubt because my hooves are used to pages, not rock. Just the roughness of the rock combined with it's weight wore on me a little.

I may have to start doing some sort of routine: my body type may not change majorly, but if I can supplement my magic enhanced strength with muscle, I could likely surprise many Ponies. I may need to practice it more effectively in combat..."Not minding the fading pain you place your hooves on top of the rock, stretching your hind legs forward and back, much of your hind legs and underbelly being obscured by the rock, looking at Dawyn out of the corner of your eye you do notice her eyes look down at your legs and then quickly back up at you. Letting out a sigh, you circle around the rock to your dripping companion."If you're lacking for ideas I could try one of your stories, I've done the rock one so that leaves two. I doubt I could pull a full grown tree, perhaps a smaller younger one though I'm not sure how impressive it'd be."You smile a bit as you then joke."Or a dead Dragon.""Those would all be impressive, though we should probably start heading back. It is getting dark.""Yeah, I believe we've disrupted the local environment enough. I can carry your things, if you'd prefer, could even carry you since you're enough of a Dragon for me. And the offer to use my tent still stands.""That's nice of you, I'll gladly take it," She smiles, "You don't have to carry me. I don't want to get you wet because of me, carrying my things is fine enough."What do you do?
>>39934402Nodding we pick up our bags and hers, sliding both over our back. Hmm... Feels almost like carrying a library on my back. It's a little nostalgic.Looking around a moment to determine which way we came from, using our soul sight if it's a bit hard to tell because of the fading light. Did you have a tent of your own? Despite the heft of your books your bag seems light on other essentials.A thought suddenly comes to mind as we set off back to camp with Dawyn.Do you have a cutie mark? I don't think I ever asked, I don't know if dragony get them.
Stopping for the night.Have a good night or day!And thanks everyone! I was expecting an interview or something, but they just had me sign a few things and I was hired. It's a stagehand job and I don't have to worry about scheduling cause I can choose the shifts I want and on what days. My first shift is on Sunday and past that I'll probably disappear off and on for four hour intervals throughout the summer. That is if I like the work.
>>39934402"Can do. Let me get those jars back real quick."We return to the jars that have been influenced by the dragon breath, peering into the ceramic one to see if any remanence of her breath lingered inside. If so, we cap it and keep it safe. The metal one we take to dispose of later. (Or Save it for scrap to use for mending?)With the jars secured, we take her bag and carry it with us."Assuming Tanssija and Smoke weren't making out the entire time, they should have some food prepared. I wonder what they've made tonight."
>A few weeks had passed since going their separate ways, it had been surprisingly hard on Dawyn, but she had finished up her studies at the giants ruins, or at least she'd run out of food.>By chance she encountered Silver lining and her group again and it was almost like they'd never been apart.>Deciding to travel together again was an easy choice to make though the unicorn and doe pair made things a little awkward at times especially at night. >That magic mirror and the stories Silver traded with her buck friend was even worse, Silver's monotone voice didn't extend to the characters she portrayed whilst reading. >Finding this out while she was on watch was hard enough, discovering their tastes made it all the tougher.>Her lack of luck finding anyone of her own reared it's ugly head again, when Silver offered a hoof in a moment of weakness she took it.>Dawyn sat on her haunches looking into the mirror, her tail curled around to her front hugging her belly.>She was having second, third, and forth thoughts about this whole thing as the cloaked mare she'd made fast friends with practically glided around her.>A tube of dark maroon lipstick brought to her lips left them to stand out but not clash with the natural brown of her scales, in fact complimenting their inherent luster.>It was so quick but the time seemed to stretch on, a little eyeshadow here and a touch of blush there and it was almost as if she blinked and couldn't recognize herself.>She stared at her reflection that gaped back at her, what caught her attention again was her friends Silver's voice piping up making her jaw shut with a click as she turned her head to the side blushing to look at her.>"I wasn't quite sure what to do with your horns, they're a first for me. I just put some polish on them treating them a bit like hooves. But That should be it, I think you're ready to go make an impression on any wanton lonely pony that catches your eye.">Dawyn was speechless for a few moments before managing to get a few faltering words out.>"T-that... Th-t-thank y-you are you... S-sure this will w-work? I mean I l-love what you've done! But I mean, i-i... I'm sure you'll get more a-attention than me.">Sliver lining shook her and reached out her hoof, a supportive thin but deceptively powerful limb lightly patter her back carefully avoiding her wings.>"I'm here to be your... Wing-mare? I think this is the right context for it. Either way I'm here to help you have fun, I'll be with you every step I'm not going to trot off to have my own entertainment.">Dawyn shivered a little in her new dress, her worry not fully gown but at least dealt with for now. Standing up she looked at the floor away from Silver lining.>"... I suppose we should go then before it's too late?">Silver gave her a little smile that she failed to spot but the clicking of her hooves against the tiles as she moved is hard to miss, she looked up to see her going for the bathroom door.
>>39935474>"Right, cute as you are they're not going to wait for you if they haven't seen you yet. Come on.">Blushing madly again with a little scamper she hurried after the longer legged mare.>They joined a little harvest festival the small town they were staying in was having, having a few drinks here and there as the evening stretched into the night.>They were catching ponies looking regularly Dawyn lowered her head a little as her cheeks burned ever brighter, but every time she did Silver was there to make her raise it again and ease her tenseness.>Eventually a stallion, a big farmer stallion asked Silver to dance. Dawyn looked at her tepidly but before she had the chance to say something Silver was already shaking her head.>"I'm not here for myself tonight, just her to support my friend you should ask her if you asked me because you were worried about her biting she doesn't do that unless you ask very nicely.">Dawyn looked at Silver in shook her face beet red as she trembled.>The stallion said his goodbyes, but from there word got around this time directed at Dawyn herself, she was a bit of a stuttering mess even with Silver's support but eventually...>A pegasus stallion had swooped in and swept her nearly literally off of her feet, bringing her into an intricate sky born dance that left Dawyn's heart pounding, and only partially because of the exercise.>The hour grew later and she felt like she was walking on the clouds even when she wasn't. Still she checked occasionally to see that Silver was still there watching from the ground, and without fail she was.>Dawyn landed bringing the stallion with her.>"So you're going to pair off? I suppose it's time I take my leave.">Dawyn's eyes widen as a bit of panic shakes her resolves and she rushes forwards lifting a claws to grab onto the Silver as she turns around to head for her room. Her claws press into the taller mares thigh causing her to stiffen.>Almost as soon as she has a grip Dawyn lets out a quiet 'eep' and lets go.>"S-sorry I didn't mean to- Uh, I just thought you said you were going to be with me through this whole thing?">Luscinia turns around a single wrinkle in her muzzle indicating her confusion.>"I did yes. And I was?">Dawyn's cheeks are burning red now and she can't look Silver in the eyes.>"But... You were about to leave right at the most i-important part I need y-you most for...">Silver blinks a few times in rapid succession, the pegasus for his part looks blown away.>"... You want me to... Join you for that?">There is a long pause before the dragony who suddenly found the floor very interesting slowly nodded her head.>Silver and the pegasus stallion exchanged a long look, before a tiny smile pulled at the corner of Silver's lips.>"I hope you don't mind me writing this down then- Oh."
>>39935478>The second Dawyn had that go ahead she moved past the stallion who seemed to be making an effort to hid something below him and Silver by to the stairs to the bedrooms.>That night nobody got any sleep, not the trio or anyone in the same inn and Silver's book got two new very detailed entries.
>>39934548Morning, Pluto!Genuinely hope the work will wind up being fulfilling and pay well, but I guess you'll find out Sunday.>>39935522Being an absolutely supportive friend to Dawyn is fucking stellar. Expected things might go a different direction, based on her overhearing Luscinia and Hannu's tastes. For some reason, I pictured the "Oh." deriving from how quickly Dawyn latched onto and dragged the stallion into the room after Silver said yes, the pegasus having no chance to hide himself dropping from his sheath in front of both of them. I can also picture the peagsus being Swift Hoof, being legitimately so smitten with Dawyn that he misses Silver's presence (thanks in part to her make up) until later on, giving subtle approval that Dawyn misses in her high. Luscinia sticking around to make sure all is good, and that he's been a good colt since they last saw each other, and seeing he's at least trying (even with a few minor slight of hoofs to impress the Dragony), is content to letting them have a little bit of privacy, especially with Dawyn's stuff in their shared room... Just realized Dawyn taking her new toy back to their shared room would've been an excellent scene, especially if Luscinia HAD to have something from her bag. Not that she wouldn't have been watching through the walls in either case. Also, giving the stallion a little hint about how flustered she gets over a little bit of praise.Damn it, now I want to write, but I've got other things I should finish first.
>>39935569*Fallstreak, not Swift Hoof. Been a while since I've thought about either, to be honest.
>>39935522And now for something completely different.>Luscinia stands completely stock still in the near the side of a crowded street, her intense deep blush practically invisible to anyone who doesn't know her personally.>A few moments ago a pair of halflingers the stallion a tan brown the mare a darker brown with white splotches, each winked at her before suddenly ducking between her legs slipping under her cloak hiding themselves from view.>After a few moments when she was just about move her left ear twitched, catching a faint moan. Her brow rose and she was further frozen in place.>'Are they...? No, They couldn't be...'>Her thoughts seized at another moan, clear as day a mare in the throes of pleasure. >Glancing down with her soul sight only needlessly confirmed she was being used as makeshift cover for the pairs dirty deed.>They were quiet, but not so quiet as for Luscinia to not hear them, given the things they we saying she could only guess that was intentional. >"I can't believe she hasn't done anything yet, barely moved a muscled." >"Hah! I told you I knew how to spot 'em, a complete slut through and through, no matter how much clothes and armor they try to hide under I can still tell.">A little hoof brushes against the side of her left teat and Luscinia lets out a soft sigh.>"Seems we got lucky, not just a slut but a pervert too~ Looks like she was having her own fun with some expansion magic under here. Maybe we should have her thank us once we're done.">A few guards came running around the corner the couple had appeared from, all looking around for something. One approached Luscinia at the pair of diminutive ponies quietened down at the telltale sound of armor. >"Excuse me... Miss? Ahem- We're looking for a pair of thieves, small likely halflingers cloaked with a few bulky bags have you seen anyone by that discription go by here?">Luscinia opens her mouth to say something when she feels two little hooves wrap around her hind fetlocks holding onto them for dear life, for a moment she thinks one of them is terrified at the thought of being caught.>Then she feels several hard jolts through them, the pair having never stopped only gotten quieter and she was being used as support like a creaky bed frame. >Luscinia swallows taking a little breath.>"Y-yes I believe I saw something like that.">Below her the grip on her hind legs just grows tighter as the space between lurches grows shorter each one being more potent.>'They're... Getting more excited at me exposing them?'>"They, uh I believe they went to the end of the street and went left.">The guard gives her a hard look for a few seconds then looks down where Luscinia directed. And nods his head.>"Thank you ma'am, please stick around in case we need to ask you questions later.">With that the guard takes his leave calling a couple of his fellows to follow him down the false route where she had directed him.
>>39935857>As the sound of their hoofsteps fade away the quiet voices sound out again a much cheekier tone taking hold of the females. >"Mmm... I think the kinky bitch likes us~" >"What a wonderful polite host. We'll have to... Thank them properly.">Luscinia's breath hitches in her throat as she feels a hoof on the bra strap between her massive mare mounds, tugging it teasingly back and forth the soft treasure withing almost spilling out before the hoof pulls it back in place.>"She's already dripping on my face, you don't need to ask-">There is a tiny grunt and the clap of wet flesh silencing the mare.>"Maybe not, but I wanna hear her beg her needy heart out.">Luscina's nipples harden slowly pressing out into the fabric as it's dragged over time and time again leaving her silently panting.>"Fuck honey, you know I love it when you take charge a bit more, just guess I need to hotboxed with a mare's scent more often. If it wasn't the middle of autumn I would swear she's in heat.">Nibbling her mane as she tries to concentrate on something, get her thoughts together for some form of response, just Luscinia goes to say something she winks, the mare below her letting out a giggle before her ears catch some intentionally loud swallows, all this breaking that resolve to a million pieces and scattering them to the wind.>"Please... Let m... M-me, h-help me. I'll hide you in r-return.">Luscinia's monotone voice softly calls a need intoned in it impossible to ignore.>There is a sharp pull and her breasts fall free into the steamy environment, the stallion gasps loudly but the mare...>"Ye gods mare! How are you walking around with those, They're almost bigger than us!">Her exclamation rings out, a touch too loudly. A few ponies look over at Luscinia for a few moments questioningly much to her growing embarrassment before they move on.>Luscinia feels a mouth wrap itself around her left nipple sending a spark of pleasure up her spine. >After a moment a wet second pair of lips joins it in a kiss exchanging spit around her nipple giving it playful licks tag teaming it between them before the second set of lips pulls away off finding her right nipple.>The pair suckles away while they have their fun, teasing tugs on the right and playful nibbles on the left. Little mix ups trading sides and massaging them between their hooves.>It becomes a race to finish, Luscinia had lifted a fore to her muzzle to silence herself a while ago, by consequence if you were at just the right angle any pony could see why she had to do so.>She reach her limit when she felt two hooves press against her inner thighs and a slender muzzle slide between her flanks and started lapping at her messy dripping slit.>She bit down on her hoof hard enough to partially crack it as she felt herself be drank from like a water fountain managing to reduce a powerful whiny to a low whine.
>>39935862>There was a little grunt from the stallion and a sudden warm wet stickiness on the back of her teats that appeared in long thick strands, the intervals between new blooms of warmth grew and in turn each one was lesser than the last until they finally stopped.>Lowering her hoof first Luscinia ducked her head down and peaked into her robe in time to spot the stallion wiping his messy cock off on the insides of her bra.>The white splotched mare walked out from behind her teats and kissed the stallion swapping some Luscinia's juices to him before moving past him.>"Thanks for the boost babe. Mmm... Glad you could join us down, cos I need ya.">Turning around she drops her front half and presents her rear, the tan stallion stepping half over her, his softening cock resting against her side. Bringing his fore hooves up he spreads her flanks showing off her gaping soaked cunt as he bites her tail raising it up before spitting it to the side.>"Better get to it, ponies are gonna start wondering why you've got your head between your hooves. We've done all the work so far so plunge that tongue down my wife's marehood till she makes a mess of your face.">Leaning in and getting a real good look at the patterned privates she shoves her tongue down the welcoming tunnel, it doesn't take long her thick mouth muscle spreading her apart while she was already close quickly leads to a heavy stream of the Haflinger mare's cum marking her muzzle with the smaller mare's scent.>After taking some time to recover and a little aftercare, (and the stallion gaining a quick second wind, filling up Luscinia's mouth for a bit) they went their separate ways smelling of sex the rest of the day. >>39935569>>39935632I went back and added in the bit about seeing Luscinia and Hannu in action and their tastes part way through, I thought about it but I couldn't think of anything that'd really work the way I wanted that one to go so I decided to use it as set up trying to build up the reasons for her frustrations. Reading back on it I could have bridged that gap better it's rough.I actually had it written in that she grabbed them and started dragging them up, I'm not sure why I cut it now but yeah that is pretty much how I saw it happening too.I spent a while trying to think of a good name for a pegasus. I blanked hard, Updraft was the best I had and decided to leave it up to reader interpretation instead. Which is perfect because I didn't think of Fallstreak, he fits in there perfectly.The alternative is a really hot idea too, I might write out a full and proper ending and extend it sometime but it's late for me and I'm tapped of of ideas for the second. I'll need to organize my thoughts. I'm glad you enjoyed.
>>39934540>>39934812"Can do. Let me get those jars back real quick."You trot over to the jars that were placed in the line of fire of her breath, peering into the ceramic one to see if any of the acid remained inside. There was a bit of acid inside the ceramic, but being in the fire of the acid breath had caused the ceramic jar to become cracked all over inside and out, cracks that were causing the acid to leak out. If you tried to move it it would likely break apart in your hooves or while you were transporting it. You do take the half destroyed metal one. You trot back over to Dawyn and pick up her bags along with yours, sliding them onto your back."Hmm... Feels almost like carrying a library on my back. It's a little nostalgic."The two of you look around for a moment before setting off down the path you took."Assuming Tanssija and Smoke were't making out the entire time, they should have some food prepared. I wonder what they've made tonight.""Whatever it is, I bet it'll be good.""Do you have a tent of your own," You ask her, "Despite the heft of your books your bag seems light on other essentials."She stops and blinks. A second later she brings a hoof to her face."I really need to make a note about that," She sighs in frustration, "I've been meaning to, but I keep forgetting."After a moment she looks over at you."Is it ok with you if I stay in your tent with you tonight?"What do you do?
>>39936389That's fine, I don't mind. I wouldn't leave you to the elements. Although I haven't got a spare bedroll, is that another thing to make a note on? I have a few things that could keep you off of the ground at least if it's not something you have. With some heating crystals. We should be able to set this up as to where we'll both be comfortable. We smile a little at her.We'll work out the specifics when we get back, it'll be fine.
>>39936389"I was going to extend the offer as is, given you hadn't set up a tent yet. You should see about acquiring some essentials before we reach the ruins though, just in case.">>39935911Another very fun read. Wish I had the time to comment/share some ideas, but a little busy.
>>39936389I actually somewhat prefer it. I find it calming to have someone close by so you won't be a burden. You can read my books if you'd like though other than for them I'd ask only you don't really go through my other possessions.Do you have any sleeping habits like snoring or sleep walking?
>>39936462>>39936478>>39936487"I was going to extend the offer as is, given you hadn't sent up a tent yet. I actually somewhat prefer it.

She smiles.You smile back at her."We'll work out the specifics when we get back, it'll be fine. Do you have any sleeping habits like snoring or sleep walking?""Not as far as I know," She shakes her head, "What about you? Any habits I should know of from you?"What do you do?
>>39936619"No habits that I'm aware of as such, as I've yet to receive any complaints. I might huddle closer in the night for warmth, but that is about it. There is a small matter to bring up, but it's easier shown than spoken of. Otherwise, I sleep in a nightgown most nights, if that matters."'My teats may have to be addressed, though without offering proof, any claims might simply be dismissed as boastful...'
>>39936619"Nothing I know of, unless being a side sleeper is a deal breaker. I've had a few instances of people making themselves comfortable in me."We let our words sink in, knowing she had a chance at our assets."Armas may be restless though. I think he should be on night watch, but I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up in a tent if two mares."(A little heavy hoofed? A bit unsure about the post.)
>>39936732>In me"On me." I could have sworn I checked for that typo!
>>39936732>>39936735>In meHere lies Dawyn Crisrinn, Drowned in Mare PussyI think it's good. Opens the path to questions about Armas, so we'll have to be careful with that, but it should prove interesting. Seconding!
>>39935911As I meant to say before, a lot of really fun stuff here. Wish I could go through and pick out some more specific stuff I like, but it's so full of entertaining details that I'd need another post. Still, somehow my muse got away from me while reading this, so have a thing.>It wasn't much later after the, 'interesting' walk back, with her bra left askew and the lingering taste of the hearty 'treats' her brief partners in crime left her, when Luscinia discovered a parting gift>Resting perfectly atop her mare mammaries, was a simple gold necklace with a charm, fitted perfectly to her teats among the 'pearls' that dot them>After a little research, Luscinia found her finding to be a little ironic in conjunction with her first thought of it: a lucky fit for a Halflinger Luck charm, clearly something too large to be worn by Halflingers, and would even rest low on herself>Putting the encounter to paper did help her sort her thoughts a bit, committing a worthy two pages to the Halflinger couple that had used her so shamelessly, if unconventionally>Luscinia eventually decided she might try her hoof at catching the duo; she might've enjoyed herself, and pitting her luck and guile against that of two Halflingers was a foal's gambit, but she disagreed with their methods on principle>Using a taller mare as cover for their own retreat without consent and hedging on her complacency through embarrassment and arousal to make her an accomplice was poor form>That, and she'd felt a little slighted: a loving husband, cunning sexual orator, and logistically sound Stallion he may have been, a passing comment incensed her more than it should've, especially as he'd passed over her yearning holes in favor of her maw>Given the chance, she'd show that scoundrel that her size wasn't a gimmick or a spell, and more to the point, it didn't matter:in their, purely hypothetical, copulation>... Unlikely as it was, Luscinia also couldn't see herself turning down the opportunity to 'host' another Halflinger, as even with her most recent 'guests' being less than legitimate, they'd impressed her with their unique brand of, "hospitality">...
>>39936788>Somewhere in a plane untouched by time, Morena hoofs 'Lady Luck' a bag of worship manifest>"You're really confident in this mare, ain't cha, Mory. You're softer on her than have been mosta your flock these past centuries.">"Her fate is of interest to me, and her luck is too poorly for games of chance. And I know you don't win those by playing the house: you bribe the dealer.">The Halflinger Goddess chuckled>"She was just 'blessed' by two of my Avatars directly on my behalf, and 'got lucky' in the process. The only way she could be luckier was if she was a Halflinger herself...">Morena's eyes narrowed, picking up on exactly where her trickster aunt was leading things>"Or she bares a Halflinger foal.">Lady Luck answered her frigid glare with a laugh, finding something about it hilarious>"Oh, don't pretend you haven't used godly dealings to aid your adorable little hybrids in their infancy, as is your right. I might not snoop as much as the rest of the family, but I know you've had dealings to help with their safety and acceptance... Now, how about it? Almost a year of extra boosted luck, the best I can give any mortal, if you're willing to sweeten the deal~.">Morena stood still, contemplating, though soon enough she had a skeletal grin that would haunt the nightmares of lesser mortals>"... I know you, Auntie. I also know Luscinia. I think I'll let the cards fall as they may.">Lady Luck's grin lessened a little, though it became softer and more genuine, and less the poker face Morena had still seen through>"That's my girl, you really do know me... While I'm here though, perhaps we can discuss your other dealings? A brief 'exchange' between one of mine and one of yours. There was this Hippogriff stallion with a dashing dark coat..."
>>39936723>>39936732>>39936735>>39936743"No habits that I'm aware of as such, as I've yet to receive any complaints unless being a side sleeper is a deal breaker. I might huddle closer in the night for warmth and I've had a few instances of people making themselves comfortable on me.""None of that is a deal breaker for me," She shakes her head, "If Ponies like to get comfortable like that you must be soft then.""There is a small matter to bring up, but it's easier to show than speak of. Otherwise, I sleep in a nightgown most nights, if that matters.""Doesn't matter to me.""Armas may be restless though. I think he should be on night watch, but I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up in a tent with two mares.""He likes to fly in at night, huh," She giggles a little, "I don't know if a watch is needed though. This area seems pretty safe with the other caravans."What do you do?
>>39936853"He's doesn't need much sleep, and he'd get restless if he was stuck in one place for hours on end. He's witty though, and can come and go as he needs."'It seems she really was oblivious to all the eyes on her. Granted, I would likely be the same when reading a good book.'Lead her back to our tent, flicking on our soul sight to watch for any followers, and to help us find our companions a little faster.
>>39936853It certainly seems that way. Perhaps it'd be safe because of the numbers of the gathered group, or maybe it's even more necessary.A group this size could attract more bandits or thieves. Just because it seems safer doesn't mean we can afford to be too lax.It should be fine, I just don't want to take chances.
>>39936853"It could also be a thieves' Guild's big score, but you might be right. He does like being around company, but there's only so much he can stand being in the same spot."
>>39936883>>39936911"He doesn't need that much sleep, and he'd get restless if he was stuck in one place four hours on end. He's witty though, and can come and go as he needs."'It seems she really was oblivious to all the eyes on her. Granted, I would likely be the same when reading a good book.'"Perhaps it'd be safe because of the numbers of the gathered group, or maybe it's even more necessary. A group this size could attract more bandits or thieves. Just because it seems safer doesn't mean we can't afford to be too lax. It'll probably be fine, I just don't want to take chances.""That's fair," She nods, "Though I feel like a group of bandits won't attack a caravan of this size without having comparable numbers."The two of you quietly return to the camp, having little issue getting back with your soul sight. The smell of cooking meat hits your nose as the two of you reach your group's camp, a large piece of meat getting cooked over the fire by Copper. Smoke and Tanssija were sitting by the fire chatting with each other. By the smell of the meat it was probably close to done.What do you do?
>>39937028"You can go ahead and get changed, I'll check in with the others to see how they're doing."Placing her bag at the entrance to our tent, we scan for Armas to make sure he's okay before approaching the couple by the fire, opening our mouth just in time for our stomach to growl."... That smells delicious. What is it?"
>>39937094"You can go ahead and get changed, I'll check in with the others to see how they're doing."Dawyn quickly slips into the tent, her tail the last thing that disappears. You then place her bag near the entrance so she could grab it if she needed it, scanning around for Armas. You find him pretty quick sitting on a tree branch nearby, simply keeping an eye on the area. Trotting over to Smoke and Tanssija you sit down next to them, opening your mouth just in time to for your stomach to growl."...That smells delicious. What is it?""Ham," Copper replies simply, "Should be done in a minute.""The two of you enjoy your walk?" Smoke asks; looking over at you.What do you do?
>>39937221"It was a very pleasant walk. We took the time to learned a bit about each other, and she showed me an ability that way absolutely astonishing."We use minor illusion of Dawyn using her dragon breath."It was an absolute spectacle to witness."We pull out the metal can for them to see."If it can do this to metal, I can only imagine what it could do to someone in armor."We dispel the illusion and put away the can."I also learned a little something about myself, but I think Dawyn would describe the feat better than I can."
>>39937274Seconding! Literally can't think of anything to add.
>>39937274"It was a very pleasant walk. We took the time to learn a bit about each other, and she showed me an ability that was absolutely astonishing."You cast Minor Illusion of Dawyn using her dragon breath. The pair's eyes widen."She can really do that?!" Tanssija exclaims."It was an absolute spectacle to witness," You nod; pulling out the metal can for the two to see, "If it can do this to metal, I can only image what it could do to someone in armor.""Shouldn't try to get on her bad side then," Smoke jokes, "That's very strong acid if it can do that."You then dispel the illusion and put the can away."I also learned a little something about myself, but I think Dawyn would describe the feat better than I can.""You sure you can't try," Tanssija asks, "I'm sure that whatever it is will be interesting no matter if it's you or Dawyn describing it."What do you do?
>>39937421I picked up a large rock from a river.We give them a small smile as we intentionally word it as unimpressively as possible. Then we produce an illusion of the rock and it's size.It was about this size and I pulled it out from the riverbed's soil it was partially buried into and carried it to the riverbank.It's a lot simpler than melting a portion of a forest but apparently earth ponies are known for being able to haul things like entire trees out of the ground and carry deceased dragons on their back where she's from.
>>39937421"I picked up a rock from the river." We say lamely, letting the mundane statement linger for a while before continuing."As you know I grew up with Unicorns, so outside of what I've read and the knowledge of my own biology, I haven't had much of an opportunity to connect with my Earth Pony roots. Dawyn never met an Earth Pony before me, and wanted to know if my strength was comparable to the rumors she's heard... Apparently Earth Ponies are strong enough to lift Dragons."We then use Minor Illusion to project the size of the builder."While I don't know if I'll be lifting Dragons soon, I was able to lift this boulder out of the ground without much effort.">>39937467Seconding! I like the flow of your explanation of events.
>>39936788>>39936791I am actually pretty happy how that one turned out, thank you. Taking it from where Luscinia couldn't quite tell what was going on just what she felt and what she heard. Streamlined things and gave me room to add in the extra stuff.I love the continuation you made, the walk of shame only bolstering Luscinia's resolve to get her hypothetical fair dues, all mostly because of the principle of it(Or at least that's what she tells herself.) And at some point I'm going to write a halflinger using Luscinia's bra as a hammock while she has it on but not in service. It'd be so cozy.The bit with the gods was a great touch, just brings all the more to think about. Like, what could be coming up that'd require such a boost in luck that Morena would step in to help out, and what other strings Morena and other gods might be pulling in the background.Why do I get the impression Jaaja ended up with a Halflinger stuck on his knot that he had to deal with hanging between his legs as he did things after the little mare insisted on an alternative way of paying for a potion.Damn, when I have more time I have to do something more.
>>39937467>>39937620"I picked up a large rock from the river." You say lamely, the two blinking at this as you let the mundane statement linger a bit.You eventually give the two of them a small smile before producing an illusion of the rock and it's size, letting the two of them study it as you continue."It was about this size and I pulled it out from the riverbed's soil it was partially buried into and carried it to the riverbank. It's a lot simpler than melting a portion of a forest," You say, "As you know I grew up with Unicorns, so outside of what I've read and the knowledge of my own biology, I haven't had much of an opportunity to connect with my Earth Pony roots. Dawyn never met an Earth Pony before me, and wanted to know if my strength was comparable to the rumors she's heard. While I don't know if I'll be lifting Dragons soon, I was able to lift the boulder out.""Wow, that is still quite a feat," Smoke whistles, "I've heard stories about Earth Pony strength as well, though I thought they were exaggerated a bit.""Seems there's some truth to the stories then," Tanssija shrugs, "She must've been quite impressed though."What do you do?
>>39939118"Indeed she was. I still feel her perspective on the matter is of some import, as I can only imagine how it looked. On my strength though, I will need to train with it at some point; I likely already use it subconsciously in fights, but if I can develop my technique with it in mind, anything from lunging great distances forwards in combat, to non lethally grappling and taking down a larger opponent could be within my future, and I refuse to further neglect a gift purely because of reliance on my magical talent. If anything, I should find ways to utilize them in tandem."
>>39939062>>39939272This, but also:We pull out our notebook and pen."I'm curious about what you may have heard about Earth Ponies. What I've read about was the why and how we have our strength, never what feats we've performed. I might be able to put them to the test." Voice to text turned "Earth Ponies" to "her panties". Just thought that was funny.
>>39939272>>39939305"Indeed she was. I still feel her perspective on the matter is of some importance, as I can only imagine how it looked.

If anything, I should find ways to utilize them in tandem.""Being good at fighting and magic is a boon for everyone." Smoke nods in agreement.After he says this you pull out your notebook and pen."I'm curious about what you may have heard about Earth Ponies. What I've read about was the why and how we have our strength, never what feats we've performed. Might be able to put them to the test.""I haven't heard a lot of stories about Earth Ponies," Tanssija shakes her head; looking over at Copper and Smoke, "I assume you guys have?""I've heard a few, mostly from my friends who operate in the empire as well," Copper replies, "Plenty of stories of Earth Ponies being able to pull a cart by themselves that would normally take a few Unicorns or some pack animals to do it. Seems to have some truth as Unicorn merchants have been hiring them if they can't afford pack animals. Besides that there are plenty of stories of them lifting large boulders, heavy military equipment, or beasts like Laika."He leans back a bit."Don't know if those last three are true, but the Unicorn states in the empire have been putting more Earth Ponies from Duzkanger into their armies. They're strong fighters."What do you do?
>>39939380We write down what he listed off."It seems I'll be able to encounter some other Earth Ponies in the future. I might have to check near some baracks to see them."We look to Tanssija."That reminds me, your the Earth Pony equivalent of Deer, right, Tanssija? Has there been some interesting feats your race have done?"
>>39939380"Strong physical fighters, supported by a large faction of magical fighters, probably a mix of dedicated mages and mixed fighters."We contemplate for a moment, the image of an elite unit of earth ponies bolstered by and protecting unicorn allies, is an interesting thought.'Harder to apply tactics of that sort to an adventuring group though.'(A bit random, but pretty sure Luscinia against the mass 'pointless' death seen in war, especially with her being a bit naive. Also, they send armies after Necromancers)>>39939562Seconding!>>39939062>Jaaja ended up with a Halflinger stuck on his knot that he had to deal with hanging between his legsDamn you for incepting that thought into my head. Already got something written, just need to clean it up, and a little busy, otherwise I'd write more on the rest of that and thanks! I did imagine an encounter between Luscinia and Jaaja, both trying to hide their Halflinger partners with a counter between them, based on what you just brought up.
>>39939380That's really fascinating. I would imagine a Cyst would be able to pull those off, but not someone the size of a pony.In our dryest and most serious voice, we we declare:I have a lot of catching up to do. I have to walk up on the protein and train my legs until they look like Smoke's.
>>39939380'i wonder if those trait would translate to the soul even in a different race's body.'We try to recall if Master created any Revenants or Possessed to algamate their different traits together. a bit of a last-minute thought I had. Sorry if it's late. >>39939661We roll up our sleeves and use disguise to make ourself muscular.
>>39939562>>39939627>>39939661>>39939828You write down what he listed off."Strong physical fighters, supported by a large faction of magical fighters, probably a mix of dedicated mages and mixed fighters."You contemplate that thought for a moment, the image of an elite unit of Earth Ponies bolstered by and protecting their Unicorn allies, it was an interesting thought.'Harder to apply tactics of that sort to an adventuring group though.'"That's really fascinating. I would imagine a Cyes would be able to pull those off, but not someone the size of a Pony.""Maybe Cyes can," He shrugs, "Not many to ask though."'I wonder if those traits would translate to the soul even in a different race's body.'You try to recall if Master created any Revenants or Possessed to amalgamate their traits together. From what you could recall there were a few, mostly using magically inclined souls. There were a few that were used for strength though it seemed like that if the soul wasn't in a body that had similar or greater strength than it the body would start to wear down over time.After thinking about his you move on. In your driest and most serious voice, you declare to the group:"I have a lot of catching up to do. I have to work on my protein and train my legs until they look like Smoke's."This gets chuckles from around the fire."This ham should be a good first step because it's done." Copper says; taking the slab of meat off of the fire and placing it on a plate where he starts to cut it up.You then look over at Tanssija."That reminds me, you're the Earth Pony equivalent of Deer, right?""Yeah?""Has there been some interesting feats your race have done?""Eh, there've been a few feats of strength, but nothing like the Earth Ponies from what I'm hearing."What do you do?
>>39939908Having been eying the meet for several seconds, we register what she said and look over Tanssija briefly."For what it's worth, you have grace and agility in spades, and I don't believe it's even an average amount either. It may vary on an individual basis, but your (sub-species/tribe?) of Deer could likely dance circles around the average Earth Pony."'... Perhaps I should take up dance? Surprise Hannu when next we meet.'Glancing casually over our shoulder at Dawyn's soul in our tent, and then checking for Armas' soul, we focus on Tanssija, Smoke, and Copper once more."Did you hear anything of interest while speaking with the other caravans?"
>>39939627>Jaaja decided he was having a good day>It had started as a simple enough morning; rushing out of bed to check on the numerous brews he'd left over the night, no time to deal with his usual morning routines as the shop needed to be open immediately after that>He'd also caught a falling potion or two in the nick of time; his natural dexterity and grace aiding, but dumb luck had saved his flank, and not for the first or last time time>A 'slight' morning rush, which he'd hoped and (correctly) deduced would be the brunt of his customers for the day, filling his belly after with a very late, slightly burnt brunch, an unfortunate habit for various reasons>It was only after properly re-straightening his feathers and considering his other neglected 'morning routine' that a very rare sight walked through his door>An adventuring mare wasn't unusual, not by any stretch, but the blonde feathers on her hooves were unmistakable>Oh, she was small for a pony, and with her brown coat and seasoned build, not too far off a Shetlander, but those golden feathers could only mean a lone, wandering Halflinger had entered his shop...>He shuddered as he remembered how things had progressed, pausing to grip the shelf he was stocking as the weight between his hindlegs shifted, an instinctive flex from his hanging stallionhood>Jaaja'd 'learned' a few things about himself in the past few hours, psychologically and biologically>While 'only' normally having an upper-average lock time of about 7 minutes, with sufficient weight and pressure, a Hippogriff's inflated knot could be teased and maintained for easily triple that time>Possibly related, Hippogriff genitalia also inherited the sturdiness and structure to support aerial sex, perhaps from both parts of their 'parent' species, and a resistance to the forces that made being tied to a partner during such an act potentially painful or deadly>And Jaaja had a 'thing' for smaller mares: he'd mostly only really noticed Hippogriffs of similar size (his sister unfortunately counted among them), what with the population being so, limited, that growth was essential>But now he was cursing and thanking that little Halflinger mare for revealing this to himself; even among Hippogriffs he was tall, and this taste didn't seem to have any sort of preference in range or species, just a mate he could hug and shield with his body>More to the point, he'd normally consider himself a little more reserved and traditional, but she'd caught him at the right moment, shown genuine interest in a project he'd been quite eager to finish, and had convinced him to work with her on a small feast for the both of them>And while he was no slouch in the kitchen, he'd almost asked for her hoof just a few bites in
>>39939985>Only reason he didn't suspect foulplay was because he knew the taste and feelings of a love draught, as often was an early cautionary lesson among alchemists and apothecary's apprentices, and his feelings were oddly platonic for his little friend...>And some eros, partly from a minor lust draught they'd shared; really, she'd shared it with him via a kiss after downing a sip, insisting she 'compensate' him the cost of the potion at that>Jaaja'd been worried when she insisted on taking all of his 'fifth leg', but that had been short lived, with the hours post penetration being a blur, her body feeling divine, a faint glow in her eyes and a happy-go-lucky smile standing out in his memories among the moans and the wet slaps>Which brought him roughly to now: sorting his stock of ingredients and potions always cleared his head>He'd been able to navigate the issue of him leaving her side as she rested; a happy groan and weight shifting between his hooves dealt with that concern>With a sudden grunt, the Hippogriff clutched at the shelf once more, having to resist another raptorous cry to the gods above...>Jaaja shifted his little merchant spectacles on his beak, panting and lightly shaking his head: even as an unconscious pendulum hanging well-seeded from his knot, she was milking him for every drop he had>He eyed a tiny vial that he'd knocked over at eye level, label facing him, an experimental potion he swore he stowed in his very private collection...>She struck him as a free spirited mare anyway, so she'd enjoy the results, but he'd really have to get her name before she left>Jaaja downed the potion, biting back a groan as two familiar weights swelled at his backside, jostling his little hitchhiker, before making his way to his bed, ready to join her in the land of (pleasure filled) dreams>Maybe he'd dream of that green eyed Earth Pony mare again... or his sexy stowaway...>He'd ask for her name in the morning; not like she'd be able to move without some assistance after the potion he just drank
>>39939993>If there was anyone to see her, one might describe Lady Luck as oddly contemplative>Doubly so, having spent several hours entertaining a cute little mortal through the afternoon, into the night, and nearly to til the crack of dawn>She did hate to leave the poor soul after such a fun night, but Morena had been clear: his heart was to be untouched, and even she hadn't wanted to chance him waking up to see her in his hooves after a night like that>Plus, if she showed too much favoritism to the colt, it would only bring trouble upon the both of them>She'd always intended to leave a little parting gift to him: a little good luck charm, more magical than physical>What she hadn't intended, or forseen, was how several hours spent 'immersed in a divine body', that being a luck goddess' body, might effect his dick>She'd have to monitor this one, and possibly apologize to her niece, if she couldn't figure out a way to spin it>"Good Luck Jaaja You'll need it~"[/spoiler]Fuck, this would up being longer and harder to split cleanly than expected, sorry about that.
>>39939908Maybe not but I'm still interested in what feets of strength your race may have. In fact I never seen you use that scimitar before. Perhaps we should spare sometime to test what strength you possess first hoof."
>>39939908The separation between deer in ability might not be as wide between your different genetic lines. 'Interesting, perhaps the other kinds of deer split off later from the main subset of deer? Or are they the product of crossbreeding between deer and ponies in the far off past?'We shake our head slightly.Perhaps we can start training together and you'll be able to lift Smoke with ease.'It's been a while...'We look over towards out tent, using our soul sight after a second to check in of Dawyn.'
>>39939940>>39940078>>39940081'Interesting, perhaps the other kinds of Deer split off later from the main subset of Deer? Or are they the product of crossbreeding between Deer and Ponies in the far off past?'Having been eying the meat for several seconds now, your mind registers what she said and you look over at her."For what it's worth, you have grace and agility in spades, and I don't believe it's even an average amount either," You tell her, "It may vary on an individual basis, but your tribe of Deer could likely dance circles around the average Earth Pony.""We do have plenty of grace... and quite a bit of speed." She admits.'...Perhaps I should take up dance? Surprise Hannu when next we meet.'"Still, I am interested in what feats of strength your race may have. In fact, I never seen you use that scimitar before. Perhaps we can start training together and you'll be able to lift Smoke with ease.""Hey, I'm supposed to be the strong one here!" Smoke cries though everyone could tell that he was joining in on the joking."Sorry honey, it's time for the does to show you how it's done." Tanssija giggles.You glance over your shoulder at Dawyn's soul in your tent, her soul telling you that she was doing fine. You then look around for Armas' soul, who was fine as well and hasn't moved from the branch above the four of you."Did you hear anything of interest while speaking with the other Caravans?" You ask Tanssija.As you ask this Copper gets up and gives each of you several slices of ham, the smell getting Dawyn to poke her head out of the tent and trot over wearing a new dress and some scholarly looking robes over them. Copper gives her some of the ham as well."A lot of various things and different rumors," She says, "There are bandits harassing the town of Kotkinsk which is the opposite direction we're going. Mineshi has been having issues with their mines lately that they've been trying to hire adventurers to solve. Radonitsa is also quite soon and Sibashikha apparently has great parties for the holiday."You've heard about Radonitsa a bit. It was a holiday in the spring for those that follow The Court, to commemorate those that have departed. Rather than mourning the lost the holiday was to celebrate their lives, visiting graves to place gifts on the various tombs before leaving to feast and celebrate the lives of those that have moved on.What do you do?
>>39940108Remembering the holiday, our thoughts turn briefly to our Master, (Midnight Comet?), and through him, Kost, a small frown on our lips.'Morena bestowed me a gift, allowing me to speak with my Master, and telling me that Kost yet lives, but it would be nice to do something for him, to acknowledge his life, and my hopes of reuniting with Kost. And perhaps I'll be able to finally make Armas a true Spirit while we're there.'"... What do these parties involve? Feasts, drink, and sentimentality in abundance, presumably, but I might like to attend if the chance arises."Cutting off a small piece, we pop it in our mouth and close our eyes as we chew, enjoying the odd texture of the warm (cured?) meat, the hide proving chewier than the meat itself, along with the subtle zing of flavor.
>>39940108... It's a shame we're headed in the opposite direction of Kotkinsk, I hope they'll find some way to handle their bandit problems. 'Those mines, I wonder how deep they go, I recall Fallstreak saying changelings live deep underground, I wonder if they're have trouble with them?'Looking down for a few moments we glance at towards the hilt of our master's silver sword.I've never really celebrated Radonitsa before... Perhaps I should try it, it seems like a pleasant way to honor those past on. Seeing how a town comes together to do so might also be a nice experience. >>39940172Seconding.
>>39940108We beem at this news, a genuine smile that breaks our usually unreadable expression, reminiscing on our own secret Radonitsas. We would sneak out of the tower and give the graves bits of bread. We would then return to polish the bones of skeletons and doll up the undead with flesh and fur and feed some of the spirits our necrotic energy. We would even have Kost be a part our 'festivities', giving him a gift, usually a book, and spend as much time as he liked with us reading the book together."Hopefully by the time we get there it won't be too late. It would be to participate in."
>>39940172>>39940214>>39940276"...It's a shame we're heading in the opposite direction of Kotkinsk, I hope they'll find a way to handle their bandit problems."'Those mines, I wonder how deep they go, I recall Fallstreak saying Changelings live deep underground, I wonder if they're having trouble with them?'Your thoughts are brought away from this when Radonitsa is brought up that causes a very small smile to form on your face, a genuine one that breaks your usually unreadable expression, remembering your own secret Radonitsas that you held when Master didn't catch you trying to do it. You would sneak out of the tower to give the graves bits of bread and meat. You would then head back to polish the bones of the skeletons and doll up the undead with some flesh and fur and feed some of the spirits in the tower your energy. Sometimes Kost would join in on the 'festivities', giving him gifts which were usually in the form of a book, and spend as much time as he liked with you reading the book together. Master never approved of this and you would get caught a few times trying to do this which usually ended the festivities, but he did soften a bit on the holiday toward the end. Your smile turns into a frown as you remember the two.'...Morena bestowed me a gift, allowing me to speak with my Master, and telling me that Kost yet lives, but it would be nice to do something for him, to acknowledge his life, and my hopes of reuniting with Kost. And perhaps I'll be able to make Armas a true Spirit while we're there.'Looking down at the ground you glance at the hilt of Midnight Comet's silver sword."I've never really celebrated Radonitsa with others before... Perhaps I should try it, it's a pleasant way to honor those who have past on. Seeing how a town comes together to do so might also be a nice experience," You say, "What do these parties involve? Feasts, drink, and sentimentally in abundance, presumably.""Yep, lots of feasting, drinking, dancing and drinking though that part depends on the town," Copper replies, "Married Ponies give gifts to their in-laws, and if you're not married plenty of Ponies choose this holiday as the day to propose.""Huh, that's interesting." Tanssija comments.Tanssija then looks over at Smoke who takes a few seconds to register her staring. He stares back at her before blushing as he realizes what she's staring at him about."Uhh, I-I haven't really..." He mutters; rubbing at the back of his head as he trails off.What do you do?
>>39940347It takes a moment for us, looking from Tanssija to Smoke and back for it to click as to what she's implying. Our little smile comes back as a mirthful grin.'Really not taking it easy on him are you Tanssija? Still I'm not going to let you tease him for free.'Don't worry about cost, I'm sure Hannu would officiate and handle all the minor details. No need for any stress. In the same breath we continue seamlessly out monotone voice not giving away what we're implying.Has Tanssija shown you the souvenir I got her yet? It was a gift for you both after all~ We got a matching set and I have to say it was worth the trip.
>>39940347"Hmm, better to be prepared at least, Smoke. A night of partying, drinking, dancing, passion will soar, and lonely stallions and mares might propose to your lovely doefriend. Keep her waiting long enough, and she might just say yes to any old offer just to get them to stop. Of course, I might be moved by such passion, and decide returning to Alln Lenora would be for the best."We add, more to tease Tanssija. Getting a little contemplative, we 'think' for a moment."... If you do get tired of waiting though, Tanssija, why don't you pop the question? Smoke Tree might be more 'local', but he has the musculature and cheek bones to catch a few eyes... That does assume he could take his eyes off of you though."We mumble, just loud enough for her to hear.>>39940444Seconding!
>>39940444>>39940477It takes a moment for you, looking from Tanssija to Smoke and back for it to click as well. Your little smile coming back as a mirthful grin.'Really not taking it easy on him are you, Tanssija? Still, I'm not going to let you tease him for free.'"Hmm, better to be prepared at least, Smoke. A night of partying, drinking, dancing, passion will soar, and lonely stallion and mares might propose to your lovely doefriend," You say, "Keep her waiting long enough, and she might just say yes to any old offer just to get them to stop. If you're quick I'm sure Hannu would officiate and handle all the minor details. No need for any stress. Of course, I might be moved by such passion, and decide returning to Alln Lenora would be for the best."These last parts were to tease Tanssija as well as Smoke, which seems to work as she starts to blush as well."If you do get tired of waiting though, Tanssija, why don't you pop the question? Smoke Tree might be more 'local', but he has the musculature and cheek bones to catch a few eyes... That does assume he could take his eyes off of you though.""She has a point, Smoke. I could pop the question before you do, what would you do then?"Smoke doesn't respond as he blush continues to grow, trying his best to not look at the two of you."Has Tanssija shown you the souvenir I got her yet? It was a gift for you both after all~. We got a matching set and I have to say it was worth the trip."Tanssija gives you a momentary glare and then continues."Maybe I could show that to you as a celebration gift, that would be nice~.""M-Maybe..." Smoke mutters; dying inside at this point."...Is this normal for them?" You hear Dawyn quietly ask Copper."You get used to it."What do you do?
>>39942293We look over at Copper, raising an eyebrow with a neutral expression to show that we heard him, and could probably tease him as well. After a moment though, we eat a little piece of ham and go about enjoying our dinner.
>>39942377You look over at Copper with a raised brow and neutral expression to show that you had heard him, and could tease him as well. He doesn't look too phased by this though and after a moment you start enjoying your dinner. Tanssija's teasing of Smoke soon dies down as well and the five of you simply enjoy a quiet dinner.After eating the five of you continue to talk around the fire and underneath the stars, a slight chill in the air setting in as the warmth that the sun brought fades away to bring in the cold air of the night. After a few hours Copper lets out a yawn and stands up."I think I'm going to call it a night." Copper says; stretching a bit."Same," Smoke agrees; stretching a bit but not standing up just yet as he looks over at the three of you, "What about you three?""Yeah, it's getting a bit cold." Tanssija replies."I'm getting tired." Dawyn nods.What do you do?
>>39942571Pushing the adorable thought of Tanssija snuggling up to her coltfriend for warmth aside, we nod."Agreed."Making our way over to our tent, we pause a few steps along, remembering that we won't be sleeping alone. We whisper to Dawyn."Do you wish to remain outside while I get changed? It matters little to me."Optional?:'Since Dawyn will be sharing my tent this evening, it might be best to keep my chat with Hannu brief... Perhaps I could get changed while speaking with him? A little bit of teasing and a little bit more private time with him.'"Tanssija, may I borrow the mirror for a few moments?"Would be perfectly fine with putting off talking with Hannu until the morning, as not much has happened (and the thought of Luscinia trying to sneakily talk with a groggy Hannu in her nightgown early in the morning is absolutely adorable)Thinking it might be worth discussing dream ideas in the near future. Had a few thoughts, and there are a few threads to play with, but for some reason, something involving Hannu, Dawyn, and Jaaja at the same time somehow seems entertaining. Nudist Tea Party?
>>39942571"Actually, there's something personal I would like to talk to you two about of that's alright." We say to Smoke and Tanssija then looking over to Dawyn."It shouldn't take long, I'll join you in the tent shortly."After Copper and Dawyn leave, we beckon over Armas."Thank you for staying. It's probably nothing, but I noticed two guards looking my direction worried. Did you learn anything from them, Armas?"(I'm also hoping to bring up Kost's miraculous survival. We've told Tanssija about it a bit, but I want to go in further detail about Morena's visit.)
>>39942664>>39942721>>39942747Pushing the very much adorable thought of Tanssija snuggling up to her coltfriend for warmth aside, you nod a bit."Agreed."You go to get up only to remember a few things. First, you whisper to Dawyn."Do you wish to remain outside while I get changed? It matters little to me.""I can change really quick and then stay outside while you do that."She gets up and trots back to the tent. Once she does you look over at Smoke and Tanssija."There is something personal I would to talk to the two of you about if that's alright." They both agree. Once Copper leaves you start talking to them."Thank you for staying. It's probably nothing, but I noticed two guards looking my direction worried," You tell them; also beckoning Armas to come down, "Did you learn anything from them, Armas?""Not much other than that they're heading to Lalundzhik.""I saw that too," Smoke says, "They're probably worried about Dawyn's presence if I had to guess."What do you do?
>>39942878We relax a little hearing Armas' news."I noticed she had a lot of looks her way. I don't think she or I are in any immediate danger, but I think it'll still be wise to stay on guard a bit. Would you mind keeping watch, Armas? I know your probably bored from the lack of interactions lately, but you're the best one for the job."
>>39942878"I hope it remains them simply being paranoid from a distance, but best to be prepared in case something goes astray.">>39942970Seconding!Before I forget>>39942664Vague Dream Thoughts (Lewd):MilkAstral Projection (Ghost Play?)Nudist Tea Party ideaMonster theme: Werewolf and Gargoyle come to mindPossibly continuing that book we were reading with Hannu in dream form?(Not Lewd):Something focusing on Kost, perhaps him helping us help Armas return to life somehow (as in one step in the process, not just resurrection straight up)Meeting with/imagining our hypothetical family, and/or them interacting with Master and Kost
>>39942878Pausing for a second we nod our head.That can't be helped, perhaps having her here and nothing going badly with change their minds slightly.I want to ask, the proposal thing was all in good fun correct? I wouldn't want you both to rush that for yourselves.
>>39942664We already asked Hannu to talk with us tomorrow night, I somewhat want to focus on Dawyn tonight but also I don't want to start changing around things we set with him on the fly. What would you want to talk to him about though, because I could change my mind.
>>39943261Forgot that we'd brought up talking with Hannu tomorrow, and I get wanting to focus on Dawyn as well. I was mostly suggesting it cause it make sense for Luscinia to want to talk some more with Hannu/say good night, establish a cute little routine like that, no actual topics though.
>>39943268Yeah that's completely fine, a good idea actually and kind of cute. Nothing wrong with that.For some reason my immediate thoughts go to doing that in our tent, setting the mirror down once we're done and doing an accidental strip tease for him while we chat with Dawyn, Hannu having came back because he heard Luscinia's voice. Her bra ends up getting tossed over the mirror just before he sees much more than a hint of nipple, Luscinia then ends up doing some more stretches making some very... Evocative groans.
>>39943024Not the original anon, but an idea for a lewd nightmare I had was our teats expanding right before us in a seeming endless fashion as the pleasure grows. Only issue is I don't know if such a dream is more suitable before or after Luscinia realizes she's still growing.
>>39942970>>39943024>>39943230>>39943261>>39943268>>39943295You relax a bit at hearing the news from Armas."That can't be helped, perhaps having her here and nothing going badly will change their minds lightly. Let's just hope it remains them being paranoid from a distance, but best to be prepared in case something goes astray," You say, "I also noticed she had a lot of looks her way. I don't think she or I are in any immediate danger, but I think it'll still be wise to stay on guard a bit.""Dragon Ponies aren't seen very often outside the desert and they don't have the best... reputation," Smoke points out, "Still, I agree that we should keep an eye on things."Tanssija nods a bit in agreement."Would you mind keeping watch, Armas? I know you're probably bored from the lack of interactions lately, but you're the best one for the job.""I don't mind at all." He replies.You then look over at the other two."I want to ask, the proposal thing was all in good fun correct? I wouldn't want you both to rush that for yourselves.""Oh, that was all just teasing," Tanssija confirms, "Nothing serious. Besides, we're traveling around anyway. We can start thinking about that if we settle down somewhere.""Yeah," Smoke agrees, "That can be for way down the line."He lifts a leg up and wraps it around Tanssija in a hug who hugs him back. As he does this you do note a slight bit of relief in his soul.What do you do?
>>39943381Smiling a little to see them doing well together, the thought of slipping away to give them time together springing forth in our mind, though we realize that would be impossible with them looking at us."I believe that to be all for the moment. Sleep well. And Armas? If you need a break or chance to talk of any sort, come find me."Turning to our tent, we mumble to ourself, oddly a little nervous, yet amused."Time to introduce Dawyn to the twins."... Bit random, but has Armas ever seen us naked/in our night gown? Only real chance would've been when he possessed us, afaik, and that's more feeling than seeing.>>39943364Might be best suited once the suspicions are there, conscious or otherwise. Definitely worth holding onto, maybe adding another theme or two to it. If it was meant to be more on the nightmare side, feel like there would have to be some sort of incident for her to be afraid of hurting someone with her teats, or worried about others considering her to be a cow (though that could be kinda hot), but I can see a passive worry about them keeping her from an adventuring life. Could have a follow up with some attempts at solutions to deal with the 'problem', from magic, to servants, to potions.>>39943295Was thinking somewhat similar, though more intentional while we were getting changed on our own.
>>39943381We just smile, not giving anything away.'You two are just so cute together, but that marriage will come around eventually.'"Thanks for being in the look out Armas. Caw really loud if there's something suspicious. If we can't wake up, phase through us, the cold should be more than enough to wake us up."We look over to Dawyn's soul to check if we have enough time to say more.If so:"... There's something else I want to talk about. I wanted to talk to you sooner, but the excitement with Dawyn distracted me.""... When I crossed the Alln Lenora's border, Morena visited me in my afterlife. An honor among my profession. She appreciates my plans for her gifts.""She gave me a chance to say goodbye to my Master, and she also told me about Tanssija's curse and another important but of news: Kost survived and is looking for me."If not:"There's something else I want to tell you, but it looks like I don't have much time. I briefed Tanssija about it in the dungeons, and it's important that you know about it too."
>>39943381'Glad I brought that up, it might have been bothering him for a while yet if I hadn't.'Ah, then I won't be needing to refer to Smoke as a prince for a while yet, something to look forward to in the future with any luck. 'Should I start to prepare a wedding gift early? I wonder... Maybe a servant to help them out with cleaning and such if they''re settling down at that time?'Shaking our head a bit.You two, have a good night... (Maybe this if other people want it. Otherwise ignore.)Hmm. Are you, if this isn't too much to ask are you both going to share the same bedroll? I only ask because Dawyn doesn't have one.(Being completely honest I don't really want to ask about the last bit, I think it's more interesting and fun if Gael and Dawyn have to jury rig some solution that'll end in a very awkward wake up. But I wanted to bring it up in case other people wanted it or something.)>>39943437Armas has yet to see them I think?. Luscinia was clothed during her interactions with him from before he exploded till now.
>>39943496Well, Gael isn't in this quest (yet?) So I don't see them sharing a bedroll anytime soon.Still, Tanssija is small enough to fit in his bedroll, but I don't doubt Dawyn will end up sleeping on Luscinia regardless if she has it or not. (We are quite warm and comfortable after all.)
>>39943437>>39943468>>39943496You smile at the two of them doing so well together, the thought of slipping away to give them some time together sprining up for a moment.'Glad I brought that up, it might have been bothering him for a while yet if I hadn't. You two are just so cute together, but that marriage will come around eventually.'"Ah, then I won't be needing to refer to Smoke as a prince for a while yet, something to look forward to in the future with any luck.""Prince Smoke Tree does have a nice ring to it." He admits a bit, getting a slight giggle from Tanssija.'Should I start to prepare a wedding gift early? I wonder... Maybe a servant to help with cleaning and such if they're settling down at the time?'You shake your head a bit and get up."I believe that to be all for the moment. Sleep well. And Armas?""Yeah?" He asks."Thanks for being on the lookout. Caw really loud if there's something suspicious. If we can't wake up just phase through us, the cold should be more than enough to wake us up."You look over at the tent, Dawyn's soul telling you that you have a bit more time to speak. As the two start getting up you turn back around to face them again."...There is something else I want to talk about. I wanted to talk to you sooner, but the excitement with Dawyn distracted me.""What is it?" Smoke asks."...When I crossed the Alln Lenora border, Morena visited me in my afterlife. An honor among my profession. She appreciate my plans for her gifts.""Oh, that's quite interesting. Did she say anything else?""She gave me the chance to say goodbye to my Master, and she also told me about Tanssija's curse and another important bit of news: Kost survived and is looking for me.""Your, uh... skeleton friend, right?"You nod.Smoke smiles a bit at this."You're probably happy about that bit of news, definitely something we can keep an eye out for. Tanssija and I are a bit tired though, so maybe we can talk about it later."You nod a bit as he and Tanssija pass by, Smoke stopping to place a hoof on your shoulder."And I'm happy to hear that he is alive... unalive? You know what I mean."He then trots to his tent with Tanssija. Turning to your own tent with a guest inside, you mumble to yourself, a bit nervous yet also amused."Time to introduce Dawyn to the twins."You unzip the flaps and trot inside, zipping them closed behind you as you look over at Dawyn. She had just finished putting on a plain white nightgown. She looks over at you as you trot in."Need me to step outside?" She asks.What do you do?
>>39943589We were about to shrug, but hesitate.'It's one thing for her to see my girls, but my cutiemark is a different story.'We nod."I'm still in my armor and it's difficult to have them on and wear clothes underneath. Sorry, but I need you to step out for a moment."When she walk out of the tent, we disrobe completely (bra included) and put on our nightgown, then use disguise to change our cutiemarks to a pair of clouds parting away to reveal the sun and its rays."You can come in now."(Sorry for everyone who wanted to strip in front of her. JUST remembered that awful detail.)
>>39943621Seconding.In theory, the Disguise spell on our Cutie Marks should fall apart after roughly an hour (if I remember correctly, at least), doubly so with us being asleep. Harder for that to hold up though, when considering the fact that Armas continues to exist as more than just a soul.
>>39943643We just have to hope we wake up sooner than her. Hopefully simple enough.
>>39943589Tilt our head ever so slightly to the side.No I-We nibble on our mane for a moment before we stop ourselves to continue. Using the disguise spell we quickly change our Cutie mark to something less... Telling, maybe a book with a sword as a bookmark?I don't particularly mind as long as you look away, if you'd prefer that to going outside in your own sleepwear I can't fault you. Besides...Lifting a hoof we take hold the clasp of our cloak and undo it.You saw way I wear this back at the creak... Didn't you? If you're going to look just don't be too... Odd about it, I'm sure you're curious as I would be in your place. Slowly the cloak falls off of our shoulders to the floor unveiling our body. Bit by bit we pull off the straps of our armor until we get it all off and start slipping our own nightgown on. >>39943621We can change the cutie mark before we take our clothes off. Nothing stopping us from doing that first as far as I can tell. Handy feature of the disguise spell, we can have it affect what part of us we want it to no matter if that part is hidden already, I think anyway if I read the spell right.I think it'd be a shame to waste the chance but other things will come up so I'm not too bummed about making her step out. We've had Smoke and Tanssija step out before when we didn't know them as well so Luscinia could change so I can't fault it.>>39943643It does last only an hour yes.
>>39943727Night, Pluto!>>39943643Just remembered my point about Armas doesn't apply: Minor Illusion is what he's got, not Disguise.
>>39943679You bring up a good point, but I do worry Dawyn's ability to sense magic as we use magic in front of her would be a telling sign. I don't think we would be super self-conscious of stripping in front of her, we did so with Eerika without issues. (We were disguised, with Deer that were also stripping, but still.)Dawyn hasn't sense Armas' illusion, so it's possible Illusions could be a blind spot for her, or just assume it's Armas' sent. Disguise is oddly a weaker spell, so it's possible it could slip by her. Only one way to find out I suppose.
>>39943589Take a bit of a closer look at her, now that she's not concealed by her cloak, comparing her figure against our mental image of her. Also a peek at her cutie marks, if visible.(Assuming we can cast Disguise on our cutie marks subtly under our cloak, otherwise send her out)"If you wish to. I would like to keep the cool air out, so turning away for a few moments would suffice, and still allow us to talk. I anticipate you might have questions now and in the near future, and I don't consider myself to be shy. I wouldn't mind a little mare talk, if you're not opposed.">>39943876We don't exactly know how magic is perceived in a literal sense, so that will be worth digging into. We needed an ability to disguise our dark magic use, but an adept Unicorn (Smoke) never picked up on us using Will-o-wisp without it being pointed out.Also worth considering that Hannu, king of a superstitious/religious/hermit nation, didn't immediately jump to Necromancy when he saw ours (though we had some trust by that point), but it likely would've come to light at some point anyway.I'm not nearly confident enough in all this to suggest we don't conceal our cutie mark, but I do think we could get away with hiding it in front of her... and also that attempting to hide it long term is going to backfire. Might be able to explain away how much negative attention a morbid cutie mark on a magically gifted Earth Pony that prefers restoration magic might gain.>>39943621>pair of clouds partingI know it might not have been intentional, but I can only picture Dawyn blushing a little as she makes the 'connection' between Luscinia noting herself as soft for sleeping on, her teats, and the 'pair' of clouds on her rump. Luscinia being oblivious to this, naturally.A cloud based cutie mark would make the most sense though.
>>39945046I had to reread the last thread and apparently I misread what she can do.> "Besides that, I know a lot about history and can identify spells pretty well. For example, I can pick out Giant magic or Dragon magic, though I suppose the Dragon part is because of my heritage."I thought she was able to smell magic for some reason, but she's good at identifying magic.I don't think we've used dark magic Infront of Hannu. We told him we know it and can detect it, but never actually used it.
>>39945295I can see where the mix up happened, and I could picture her being able to do that, but yeah, her being skilled at IDing magic is something to keep in mind.>We told him we know it and can detect it, but never actually used it.We also told him we're a Necromancer, and that we died in order to save Tanssija (not quite so literally, but literally that we died). He also gave us access to a Necromancy scroll prior to that. He knows we've 'used' it (we didn't specify that it was our Goddess' actions that revived us, not our own), and intend to use it in future for good, in addition to trusting us to do so wisely.
>>39943621>>39943643>>39943668>>39943679>>39943876>>39945046>>39945295>>39945366You are about to shrug, but you find yourself hesitating instead, nibbling on your mane for a moment.'It's one thing for her to see my girls, but my cutie mark is a different story.'Using your disguise spell you quickly change your cutie mark over to something else, a book with a sword overlapping it instead."I'm still in my armor and it's difficult to have them on and wear clothes underneath, so only if you wish to. I would like to keep the cool air out, so turning away for a few moments would suffice, and it would allow us to talk. I anticipate you might have questions now and in the future, and I don't consider myself to be shy."She looks over at the flaps of the tent and then back at you."Let me just turn around really quick and let you get to that."She turns around to face the wall of the tent away from you. Once she was looking away you undo the clasp of your cloak."You saw why I wear this back at the creek... Didn't you," You say to her; not getting a response but a slight blush was telling, "If you're going to look just don't be too... odd about it, I'm sure you're curious as I would be in your place."A simple wiggle of your shoulders causes the cloak to fall to the floor, unveiling your body. As you start to undo the straps you look over at her now that she wasn't concealed by her cloak. She wasn't as thin as you imagined, average for a mare of her size. She did have a slight... figure, as well. It wasn't anything major at all, but a stallion would notice it if they spent several seconds studying her. You do spot a cutie mark on her flanks: an open book with a green Dragon tail curling around it like it was a treasure. You turn back to your armor and get it all off, followed by your clothing and finally your bra before slipping a nightgown on."You can turn around now."She doesn't move immediately, which makes you look at her again where you realize the possible issue. Her face was a bright red, hoof running over her face trying to make the blush go away, telling you that she had looked at some point. The rubbing doesn't get it to go away completely, but it was good enough that she finally turns around."That took a bit." She comments; trying not to make things weirder by looking at the floor.What do you do?
>>39945458We trot towards her and lift her head up to look at us, giving her a kind smile."You don't have to be embarrassed. You find my body attractive, right? It's okay if that's the case, I don't judge. I felt similarly when I first met Tanssija.""You have some unique features of your own. You have some nice curves that would make a stallion happy to see. With a body like that, are you sure you people never asked you out before?"
>>39945458Laying on our side facing her, we conceal our teats with our nightgown, for what little good it does with how they press against the fabric and spill out over each other, fixing a blanket partway over our hindlegs in case we feel the need to cover them."Indeed. It takes some time to doff my armor, as you can imagine. As I told Smoke and Tanssija before you, I have no qualms with you looking, or any curiosities you might have. I also couldn't help noticing you without your cloak: you're an interesting mare, and I wish you didn't feel the need to hide yourself under it, but myself and Tanssija can understand the appeal of donning a cloak in a crowd."'I'd ask about how she got her cutie mark, but that might prompt her to ask about mine.'>>39945521Feeling slightly mixed about this? It's good overall, Luscinia might not care overly about social norms, and complimenting/teasing Dawyn makes sense (plus how cute she gets when she's flustered), but something about asking her if she finds us attractive feels off, even though the other lines immediately after are good.
>>39945613How about simply stating that it's understandable that others would find us attractive rather than asking her directly if she is one of them?
>>39945695I think that would work better, and teasing implication that we suspect/'know' she finds us attractive. Something about Luscinia asking in the 'first line' struck me as weird, even if we immediately moved on to reassuring her, she might feel pressured to answer. Almost certainly overthinking things though.
>>39945521>>39945613>>39945695You move the short distance towards her and lift her head up to look at you, giving her a kind smile as her blush returns."You don't have to be embarrassed. As I told Smoke and Tanssija before you, I have no qualms with you looking, or any curiosities you might have. It's understandable that others would find me attractive. I felt similarly when I first met Tanssija.Her blush continues to grow, her eyes trying desperately to look anywhere else but they always come back on you. After a moment she gives you a tiny nod."I also couldn't help noticing you without your cloak: you're an interesting mare, and I wish you didn't feel the need to hide yourself under it, but myself and Tanssija can understand the appeal of donning a cloak in a crowd. You have some nice curves that would make a stallion happy to see. With a body like that, are you sure people never asked you out before?"She begins to shake a tiny bit and it wasn't from the slowly chilling air. With her shaking and now red face you didn't need your soul sight to tell that she just wants to crawl into the nearest hole."N-Never have..." She manages to squeak out.What do you do?
>>39945736"That's a shame. Intelligent, pretty, and a cute personality are all appealing qualities to have. I suppose being buried in books, is hard for people to notice what you makes you appealing.""How about we change that. Would you be comfortable dating another mare? Even if it's just an experiment, or practice, I would happily date you for the time were together, Dawyn."(I know it's forward, but come on, it's going to happen eventually. We asked Hannu out in an awkward situation, so I think it'll be in character to ask her out in this one.)
>>39945736We giggle a little, placing a hoof on her shoulder to both reassure and steady her."Truly, that is a shame, for them... If you were interested, I could teach you a little about make up, if you ever felt like putting yourself out there. For now though, why don't we get a little more comfortable."Stepping away, we pull out our blankets and bedroll, so that we can start setting up the sleeping area (assuming we didn't do so when setting up the tent.)>>39945825I'm ambivalent about asking at this moment, but the framing of practice works for me. Only thing is she's still adjusting to seeing us, and she might be too focused on the question to be flustered about our teats... which is both a good and a 'bad' thing.
>>39945736'Right, compliments overwhelm her easily.'That's very strange... Ah, did you perhaps spend most of your time cooped up in a building studying like I did? Doesn't leave much opportunity for such things.Taking a step back again we sit down and get our heating stones out of our bag as well as some of our sets of extra clothes, our larger size being a boon somewhat for once when it comes to clothes as we lay the various sets of clothes out to pad the ground, our cloak being the final part covering the strewn out pile like a sheet.Here, see if this is comfortable. If not we'll need to rearrange some things. >>39945825That's a bit much for me honestly. I don't want to scare her off entirely. I do somewhat like the idea of proposing the idea as practice though at a slightly more opportune time when she isn't about to wish she was tossed into the sun>>39945880Seconding.
>>39945825>>39945880>>39945926'Right, compliments overwhelm her easily.'You giggle a little at this, placing a hoof on her shoulder both to reassure and steady her shaking."Truly, that is a shame, for them... Intelligent, pretty, and a cute personality are all appealing qualities to have. Ah, did you perhaps spend most of your time cooped up in a building studying like I did? Doesn't leave much opportunity for such things.""A-A l-little...""If you were interested, I could teach you a little about makeup, if you ever felt like putting yourself out there," You tell her, "For now though, why don't we get a little more comfortable.""Huh? W-W-What do y-you-"You take a step back and sit down while getting your heating crystals along with some extra sets of clothing. You first activate one of the heating crystals, swiping across it's surface with a hoof where a few seconds later heat starts to radiate off of it as it glows a soft red. You set it down and spread your clothes out to pad the ground, your cloak being the final part covering the strewn out pile like it was a sheet."Here, see if this is comfortable. If not we'll need to rearrange some things."She just silently stares down at the clothing pile with wide eyes and a blush covering her face, looking like she had just ran a small marathon. After a few seconds her mind kicks back in."Oh..."She spends a few more seconds standing there before trotting over and slowly laying down on the clothes next to you."...T-This will d-do." She says after a moment.You then pull out your blankets and bedroll, setting up a sleeping area near her. As you lay down you look over at Dawyn who no longer looked as flustered as she was before you started setting up your own sleeping area, though she was staring off into space a bit.What do you do?
>>39946183Stretching and shifting around a bit, we stare at her for a few more moments, taking the time to glimpse at her soul while wondering how rude it might be to make a sketch of her, though we decide that isn't too pressing right now. Taking a sip of water from our water skin, we offer it to her as a means of getting her attention."Grivna for your thoughts, Dawyn?"
>>39946183Hmm? Are you alright Dawyn? If it's about the bedding situation I'm sorry, I don't carry around a spare bed roll. 'Perhaps I should in case one gets damaged or something like this happens again.'We blink and our brow furrows just by the slightest margin.Oh, it would be more appropriate for me to sleep on my own garments wouldn't it? I apologize for my lack of tact, I'm not used to hosting. Would you like to take the bedroll for the night?>>39946207Seconding! I like this much more then my own, asking is better than assuming.
>>39946218Seconding, and thanks! I do enjoy the possibility of bringing up that she's sleeping on our stuff, but ye, things might get a little one sided if we can't get through to her enough to actually talk.
>>39946183"... Are you sure you're comfortable? We can switch if you prefer.""If something is on your mind, I learned it's easier to tell a friend about it rather than keeping it to yourself. I won't pressure you to do so, but I'm here if you need someone to listen."
>>39946207>>39946218>>39946232>>39946236Stretching and shifting a bit, you stare at her for several moments, glimpsing at her soul to see a wide array of different emotions within her. It was tempting to make a sketch of this, but that wasn't pressing right now."Are you alright, Dawyn? If it's about the bedding situation I'm sorry, I don't carry around a spare bedroll."'Perhaps I should get an extra one in case one gets damaged or something like this happens again.'You speaking does bring her out of her thoughts, but before she could speak you blink and furrow your brows a bit."Are you sure you're comfortable? We can switch if you prefer," You tell her, "Oh, it would be more appropriate for me to sleep on my own garments, wouldn't it? I apologize for my lack of tact, I'm not used to hosting."No, no, it's fine," She shakes her head quickly, "I just had some things on my mind is all.""Hmm, Grivna for your thoughts then," You ask, "If something is on your mind, I learned it's easier to tell a friend about it rather than keeping it to yourself. I won't pressure you to do so, but I'm here if you need someone to listen.""Well, uh..."She looks down and rubs the back of her head with a hoof."It's..."She trails off again, spending a few seconds trying to think about what she was about to say before sighing and just saying it."It's been really great to meet and talk with you Silver, and I hope you've been having a great time with me but all the things you've said about me is..."She blushes a bit."It's just a lot."What do you do?
>>39946410"Has it been making you uncomfortable? I'm sorry if it has. Flattery from another Mare must be unusual, huh?""...I grew up with Stallions and know what they look for in a Mare. I do try to keep my femininity, but sometimes masculine thoughts do cross my mind."
>>39946410We cock our head slightly"You're not used to compliments? Or is it something else? I've enjoyed talking with you, to be clear, I just don't want you to be uncomfortable."
>>39946410And every word of what i've said has been all true, as far as I can tell. But yes I have been enjoying our time together, we have a few things in common and I enjoy your company. Would you like me to not give as many compliments? Or any at all? I could be more professional about things.
>>39946455>>39946458You cock your head a bit at her."You're not used to compliments? Or is it something else? I've enjoyed talking with you, to be clear.""I've gotten compliments before and my reactions to them are normal, but it's just been a lot more than I'm used to.""Has it been making you uncomfortable? I'm sorry if it has. Flattery from another mare must be unusual, huh?""Definitely new to get them from mares," She nods, "It hasn't been making me uncomfortable, it's just a lot.""...I grew up with stallions and know what they look for in a mare. I do try to keep my femininity, but sometimes masculine thoughts do cross my mind.""Has that been the source of all of that?" She asks.What do you do?
>>39946561"No. You're an interesting mare, and I can confidently say this would not change regardless of my thoughts or upbringing. Perhaps I might've focused on different things if I had different interests, but I would have complimented you all the same. I merely have a bit of male perspective, and a curiosity and wonder about everything around me, including the individuals... It doesn't hurt that your reactions are quite cute though."
Stopping for the night. Tomorrow is my first shift at my new stagehand job so I'll disappear around three and probably won't be back until nine. Nervous about it, but it'll hopefully be fine and this'll become my job for the summer.Have a good night or day!
>>39946605Night, Pluto!And Good Luck with your first day!
>>39946561We shrug."It's... More of an excuse I suppose; a hypothesis to some of the 'questionable' things I do that aren't normal to other mares like making perverted jokes or finding smaller ponies, well, more like Deer, more appealing. Hannu is just the cutest buck."We lift a leg up and use minor illusion to a happy Hannu snuggled up and curled around our legs with his behind resting comfortably just above our teets."... I've also read Earth Pony culture sees equality among genders outside of maternity, so it's possible I might unconsciously represent that attribute of my race as well."
>>39946561No. Perhaps? I don't believe so. I would hope not anyway. It's more that rather it may be the route cause for my lack of filter on such things. I don't see a reason to not say what I think on such matters. Ask Smoke or Tanssija, I've not withheld any compliments from either of them. Maybe I'm too eager to share those thoughts...Shaking our head we let out a silent sigh.>>39946605Night. Break a leg, as long as you keep calm you'll do fine, make sure to ask for safety advice and listen to the advice they give you as long as they take your question seriously. There can be all sorts or weird hazards you wouldn't think about on those sorts of jobs.
Oh damn! I just realized that if those guards did indeed suspect us as a necromancer, there's bound to be wanted posters up north.
>>39946961In theory, there will be wanted posters regardless of where we go. The hope is that with time and distance, as well as us establishing a name for ourself, we'll be able to separate Silver Lining the Adventurer, and some unknown, unnamed Necromancer. Also, without confirmed sightings, it'll likely wind up being similar to a game of Telephone, where any information becomes polluted with rumors and additions that make it unusable.
>>39946586>>39946615>>39946642You shrug."No. Perhaps? I don't believe so. I would hope not anyway. More of an excuse I suppose; a hypothesis to some of the 'questionable' things I do that aren't normal to other mares like making perverted jokes or finding smaller ponies, well, more like Deer, more appealing. Hannu is just the cutest buck."You lift a leg up and use minor illusion to create a happy Hannu snuggling up to you and curled around your legs with his behind resting comfortably just above your teats. You dispel him shortly after."You're an interesting mare, and I can confidently say this would not change regardless of my thoughts or upbringing. Perhaps I might've focused on different things if I had different interests, but I would have complimented you all the same. I merely have a bit of a male perspective, and a curiosity and wonder about everything around me, including the individuals... It doesn't hurt that your reactions are quite cute though. Ask Smoke and Tanssija, I've not withheld any compliments from either of them. Maybe I'm too eager to share those thoughts..."You shake your head and let out a silent sigh."Maybe, but it's nice to hear someone say my reactions are cute."She shrugs, then looking down at the floor with a slight blush."So, the compliments are more from... curiosity?"What do you do?
>>39947997Hearing her embrace her reactions as cute does get us to smile a little, though we do pause to think over her question."In essence, perhaps, though that doesn't mean they weren't earnest. Would you prefer I was, lighter, with them? Or was there something else?"
>>39947997"A bit of curiosity. Growing up with crusty old stallions, then to meet a pretty young mare with the same enthusiasm for knowledge is... refreshing.""I do mean what I say though. The complements are how I perceive you: Smart, Pretty, and Cute. If you were comfortable with the idea, I would ask you out."
>>39948075>>39948078Hearing her embrace the adorableness of her reactions gets you to smile a bit, though you do pause to think about her question for a moment."A bit of curiosity. Growing up with crusty old stallions, then to meet a pretty young mare with the same enthusiasm for knowledge is... refreshing."She smiles a little as you continue."That doesn't mean they weren't earnest. The complements are how I perceive you: smart, pretty, and cute. If you were comfortable with the idea, I would ask you out."It takes several seconds for the words to hit her. Once they do she does a doubletake, eyes wide and her blush returning."A-Ask me out?! I-I didn't t-think you w-were..."She quickly trails off, her face completely red once more. Her soul telling you that she was surprised rather than embarrassed or angry.What do you do?
>>39948172"I'll be honest, I don't know what my preference is. I've only been adventuring for two and a half weeks, and that rest of my life was spent in a tower, so there wasn't much of an opportunity to explore that idea."We shrug."Or perhaps I just see gender equally like my Earth Pony relatives.""Hannu and I still love each other, but we both agreed that our distance shouldn't stop us from dating other people. His circumstances keep him locked in Alln Lenora, and being an outsider I'm technically not allowed inside the kingdom."
>>39948172Our head supported by a hoof, we raise an eyebrow."Into mares? Is it really so strange? I think everyone has aspects that are attractive, and not just physically, so why wouldn't I appreciate them? Or did I do something to suggest that I was only interested in stallions?""Do you have a preference, or have you not really consider such things? I had pressumed you might be into stallions more than mares, as that seems to be a little more common place, but I was uncertain."
>>39948172I'm more open to trying such things, I don't know for certain exactly my feelings on such things yet but I'm not dissuaded by the thought of it.>>39948311Seconding.
>>39948311>>39948404>>39948418Supporting your head with a hoof, you raise an eyebrow at her."Into mares? Is it really so strange? I think everyone has aspects that are attractive, and not just physically, so why wouldn't I appreciate them? Or did I do something to suggest that I was only interested in stallions?""Y-You seem r-really close with H-Hannu.""Hannu and I still love each other, but we both agreed that our distance shouldn't stop us from dating other people. His circumstances keep him locked up in Alln Lenora, and being an outsider I'm technically not allowed inside the kingdom," You explain, "I'm more open to trying such things, but I don't know what my preference is. I've only been adventuring for two and a half weeks, and that the rest of the my life was spent in a tower, so there wasn't much of an opportunity to explore that idea."You shrug a bit."Or perhaps I just see gender equally like my Earth Pony relatives. Anyway, do you have a preference, or have you not really considered such things? I had presumed you might be into stallions more than mares, as that seems to be a little more common place, but I was uncertain.""I... don't really h-have one," She stammers, "I-I wouldn't mind dating a mare."What do you do?
>>39949281We give her a genuine smile, touching over to hold her claw-hoof."In that case, Dawyn Crissen, would you like to be my marefriend? It didn't have to be anything serious or long term, and if it's too much for you at any time, we can stop. No hard feelings, I promise."
>>39949281Is that perhaps an open offer for me to court you~?A smile smile pulls at our lips and we use a hoof to brush our mane out of our face so she can see our eyes.It seems our time together is short, as we are bound to take different paths soon. But for that time, would you like to spend it together? Your choice as to what that means, it could be as simple as sharing the bedroll and no further than experiencing that closeness.If not I won't bring this up again.
>>39949281"Would you care for some practice then? Our limited time means I can't promise a long term relationship, but I can offer my own inexperienced perspective, and the chance to explore yourself without judgment... or myself, if that is your wish.">>39949357Seconding!
>>39949372Seconding right back. Love the way this is put, I can't believe I forgot about the practice thing so quickly. It works so well here.
>>39949333>>39949357>>39949372"Is that perhaps an open offer for me to court you~?"She quickly looks down to avoid eye contact. As she does a small smile pulls at your lips as you use a hoof to brush your mane out of your face so that she could see her eyes, reaching out to hold her claw-hoof to get her to look up at you."It seems our time together is short, as we are bound to take different paths soon. In that case, Dawyn Crisrinn, would you like to be my marefriend? Our limited time means I can't promise a long term relationship, but I can offer my own inexperienced perspective, and the chance to explore yourself without judgement. Your choice as to what it means, it could be as simple as sharing the bedroll and no further than experiencing that closeness. If not, no hard feelings and I won't bring this up again."Her eyes stare back at yours, clearly nervous about the proposition as they move around to look elsewhere but always end up settling back on you. After several long moments she finally responds."I-If you really want to... I-I accept." She nods.What do you do?
>>39949407Smiling a little wider, we caress her clawed hoof with our other hoof for a few moments before bringing it closer to our lips, kissing it as we maintain eye contact."Thank you, for giving me the chance to experience this with a mare like yourself. Would you care to embrace, or do you still need time to process things?"
>>39949407Our smile grows reflecting the glee we feel inside, scooting over to give her a hug."Thank you, Dawyn. For being open minded and giving me a chance. I'm glad to have this experience with you."We let go and look at our cute blushing mare Infront of us, our smile not faulting."... This is your first time dating someone, so I'll let you set the pace. If I'm doing something that makes you uncomfortable, tell me and I'll stop, okay?""What do you say? Should we kiss to seal the deal or would a nuzzle be more appropriate?"We do what she wants, getting a feel for her nose/lips against ours, taking the time to take in her smell (and taste). After the moment passed, we make eye contact with her again, our smile still not broken."I could stare at that blushing face all night, but we really should get some rest. We still need to journey over to the next town."We lie down next to her, inviting her to rest her head on our chest if she wants to. Whether she does or not, we still wrap a leg around her.Optional: feels like it breaks the moment.'Funny. These are things a stallion are said to do in the how to book, but they worked on Dawyn... Maybe it was written to give advice for both Stallions and Mares? Whatever. While not the intended use, the advice worked.'"Good night, Dawyn.">>39949444A lot more platonic, but more appropriate I think. I really like the hoof kissing. Very chivalrous.
>>39949407I do indeed want to. This is no attempt to play with your emotions, I want to know however that you want to as well. I don't want to make you feel like you have an obligation to accept.
>>39949447Night, Pluto!>>39949529Figured the majority of stuff Luscinia's major knowledge of romance stems from reading, hence the hoof kiss. Wanted to ease her in a bit, but that's partially cause not much else came to mind.Seconding!If we are sleeping though, perhaps we should try to reach some consensus on the dream before the next post: I'm still partial to something involving Hannu and Dawyn (and perhaps Jaaja). A setting appropriate reunion(/games night?) that turns saucy might work. Also, monster themes, but those might not be appropriate for the moment.Something Hypnosis themed would be fun, but I've got no specifics atm. Need to pass out soon, unfortunately.>>39949543Seconding!
>>39949554Luscinia, Hannu, Dawyn, and Jaaja (and Snowdrift???) Are playing strip poker, and we're losing... Horribly. We're only down to our bra!A dream where we're muscular and Dawyn and/or Hannu are swooning over them.A dream where we catch Dawyn and Hannu get intimate with each other, and invite us to watch or join.A dream where we are Dawyn's stallion (literally or figuratively) and have started a life together. (She's pregnant?)A continuation dream where Silver Lining finds out we're a Necromancer and didn't take the news well... (Fighting us with tears knowing we took such a dark path)
>>39949554A game night isn't a bad idea, I'd definitely vote for truth or dare, everyone gets more drunk the dares get more... Intense, and the truths become more revealing. Someone is under hypnosis by the end of things to rub themselves or something like that.Maybe the hypnosis could be used to make Luscinia moo and pretend to be a cow could be interesting. For something with Hannu and Dawyn what comes to mind first is Luscinia putting on a biology lesson for Hannu (And possibly Jaaja) using what she's learnt about Dawyn to do so. Having her act as a example. Things quickly get more and more lewd as things go on.Otherwise, I could imagine a dream about Luscinia helping Dawyn get over her nervousness, taking a group bath together as a part of showing Dawyn deer tradition.Could be a group book reading, as the book gets lewder they both 'play' with Luscinia in various ways always just missing the other's actions as they do the same while Luscinia barely holds it together to keep reading.Dawyn having let slip there was various special techniques she'd heard Dragon could do (That she practiced on various lewdly shaped vegetables.) Luscinia summons Hannu to her somehow and asks her to demonstrate on the confused buck.Writing down in her book sketches of her examples and every bit of detail of the encounter. Dawyn finds an artifact in the ruins and grows nearly as big as a full grown dragon. Goes to Luscinia for help, which she does... In exchange fore the giant mare's help in reenacting a certain book.>>39949655Damn. All of those are great.
>>39949655>>39949672Some damn good stuff in both of these.Snowdrift would be an interesting addition, but that might be too many characters to keep track of. Then again, Armas might fit in Snowdrift's place. Teasing her a little. Could be signaling what our cards are to everyone? Could probably fit the Truth or Dare and Strip Poker together somehow, maybe imply Smoke and Tanssija were around but 'snuck off' earlier, but if only picking one, Truth or Dare feels more flexible. Feel like Hannu could've rented out a bar for the night, based on a recommendation, not realizing it's a seedier type until we walks in and sees the stripper pole (that sees some use that night)Also, Moocinia is a yes. Imagining no time limit to it.Muscle appreciation, nice, Dawyn's stallion, interesting, feel like Hannu wouldn't be out of place in the mix there, but the focus is on Dawyn. We do need to do more with Silver Lining at some point.Can picture bathing ending in Hannu walking in. The group reading has Dawyn and Jaaja each fondling a teat, with Hannu on her back, his length poking between them, the three of them helping Luscinia make more realistic noises.Feel like Hannu+Dawyn and Giant Dawyn reenactment would fit together well, Hannu silently cursing at Luscinia for accidentally exploiting a few of his weaknesses: larger mares, scaly mares, and (as the book progresses) fucking a very powerful and egotistical mare ragged.Suggestion enforced Truth or Dare: Hannu (or Dawyn) having to admit every major lewd thought in his head for a period of time with others intentionally triggering it. Jaaja having 'idle' claws. Moocinia (body paint spots? A potion?). Dawyn being a little more expressive/dragony in her body language. Hannu having all the confidence he had on his first night with Luscinia. Asking if Jaaja's ever used potions for lascivious purposes.Deathknight Luscinia bringing home Plant King Hannu, a bit overheated and sweaty from trudging through a swamp in full plate, getting some help from him. Possibly also getting help from her maid, or 'interrogating' a Dragony assassin.Questionable 'flying lessons'/transportation? Deriving from some Dragony cultural thing, the homemade harness causes a lot of intimate contact. Later surmised that a male Dragony would often be on top, but not always.
>>39950078>Moocinia is a yes. >Imagining no time limit to it....>She couldn't remember how but one night the subject of cows came up.>Maybe it was because of a particularly juicy steak or they had passed by a farm with them grazing that day. >It hadn't taken long for the obvious comparison to be drawn.>A bit of liquid courage a night or two later for a dare from Tanssija very lips to be made.>A use of the disguise spell later making her coat white with black splotches she stood before a mirror while Tanssija was beside her egging her on.>Smoke stood back at the door looking on slightly a more reserved look on his face.>He couldn't hide that he had his back legs conspicuously pressed together.>Luscinia let out a sigh blushing deeply and used her suggestion spell on herself.>"You will act as a docile happy cow mooing and baying when appropriate drawing out your 'o's in a droll if speaking at all. You won't remember casting this until the time the spell eclipses and think this is how you normally act."...>She didn't remember much of the night after, only being able to catch bits and pieces, however her teats felt lighter than they had in years like a weight had been taken off of them.>Since then this had become a semi regular thing, Hannu taking a particular interest in it especially.>One day while half zoned out doing her make up she caught herself in the middle of adding some black splotches to her coat.>Snapping out of it she cleaned that off thinking nothing of it and going on with her day.>Weeks went by and Luscinia every so often didn't bother to remove them because her cloak would cover them.>This became more and more regular much to her party members amusement until it was more common to see her with than without.>Bit by bit that southern drawl started to fill out her regular monotone.>Covering up her cutie mark with black splotches Luscinia, teasingly refereed to as Mooscinia by Tanssija stopped wearing her cloak as much. Opting to go without to not risk it becoming damaged.>She cared not to hide her girls, the twins becoming an attraction that would get married stallions and mares alike in trouble for looking at.>Many free drinks were had by her, and given away by her.>She ended up quickly gaining quite the reputation, the moniker of calcium queen seemed to be coined overnight.>The spell eventually never wore off at one point.>A southern bell on the surface with a mind more than able to match any other.>She upgraded her choker attacking a cowbell to the enchanted vines.>To her annoyance ponies and other species seemed to have a tendency to run into her 'accidentally' now, even after she got the bell to try make sure she was noticed before it happened.>They always seemed to get buried in her teats, one halflinger actually asphyxiated before she could remove them. (She quickly brought he back before anyone noticed he'd stopped breathing)
>>39950630Bad end.Fair warning, this is weird I'm tired I just threw this together while I should be sleeping.>The stacking lingering effects of the hypnosis spell eventually overwhelmed Luscinia.>More and more she became a liability while adventuring. >Tanssija and Smoke tree sought to give her some time to recover, taking her to Hannu.>After a while with no change in her condition he moved her to the stables at her own request where she could be more easily looked after, making sure a constant supply of books was sent to keep her entertained.>By the next spring she was looking for to a visit from the king, he had been teasing her for the better part of half a year->"Cows produce more and better milk right after they've just had a calf after all.">She shivered as she can practically hear his voice in her ear.>She had expected him to do it himself but he and his new wide came with a third.>They watched as in the height of her heat a funnel was inserted into her and she was artificially inseminated.>It was cold, degrading, clinical, practical, and Mooscinia loved every second of it.>She spent her years in bliss getting visits from her friends, some throwing their hats in the ring to see if they would be next to foal the bombastic milf.>Hannu takes the time every so often to deliver her meals personally.>It was Mooscinia's favorite, his special personal topping always improved the flavor.>Every year on her (suspected) birthday she was opened to the public, giving a lot of deer very unrealistic impressions of what a pony is.>Morena watched on shock and disbelief, the daily milk offerings did actually strengthen her but her rival gods and goddesses coming around to exchange things for a share of the monopolized commodity didn't ease the fact of their knowing what happened to her champion.
>>39950642Wouldn't consider myself into 'bad end' type stuff, but all of this and the previous stuff is quite entertaining. Can see this going a few different ways that are less bad end-y. Namely, some of the quick witted and very competent Necromancer lurking behind the lazy (quite possibly immortal) heifer kept in the royal stables, a secret weapon that comes to Alln Lenora's aid in its darkest hour many many times in the future. Introducing the Deer people to her totally legit Earth Pony-Cow (and now -Deer) Goddess, Moorna, Goddess of Fertility, Rebirth, and Calcium (accidentally 'awakening' an aspect/fragment/variant within her Goddess by forming a popular religion around her). Possibly some association between calcium and bones, and the frequent 'donations' to Morena, leaving her with a direct connection to her, and majorly bolstering her Necromancy abilities to scary powerful and near intuitive levels.Alln Lenora accidentally winding up with a brand new protector (picturing hooves wrapping around the border), and she Moos.
>>39949444>>39949529>>39949543"I do indeed want to. This is no attempt to play with your emotions, I want to know however that you want to as well. I don't want to make you feel like you have an obligation to accept."After a moment she gives you a nod. Your smile grows which reflects the glee you feel inside, scooting over to give the still nervous looking mare a hug. You caress her clawed hoof with your own hoof for a bit before bringing it up to your lips, kissing it as you maintain eye contact with the now red Dragon Mare. "Thank you, Dawyn, for giving me the chance to experience this with a mare like yourself.""M-Mmhmm..."You let go and spend a moment looking at your cute blushing mare in front of you, your smile not faltering. Dawyn was still nervous, but she now had a small smile on her face."...This is your first time dating someone, so I'll let you set the pace," You tell her, "If I'm doing something that makes you uncomfortable, tell me and I'll stop.""I will." She nods."What do you say? Should we kiss to seal the deal or would a nuzzle be more appropriate?"She blinks and looks around at the tent. She then slowly leans forward and gently presses her lips against yours, finding that her lips didn't feel any different from Hannu's though that was the only real comparison you had. She had a nice smell that you couldn't exactly place, though you guess that it was probably from all of her time spent living next to the ocean. The kiss doesn't last too long, the two of you making eye contact with each other, your smiles still present."I could stare at that blushing face all night, but we really should get some rest. We still need to journey over to Mineshi tomorrow.""Right, we should be well rested for that."You lie down next to her with Dawyn laying down a second later. Bringing a hoof out you pull her closer to you, her body touching your side as she lifts her head up and places it on your chest along with a clawed hoof. The two of you then say goodnight and drift off to sleep.I know you guys were talking about it already but, what do you dream about?
>>39950816(Open to alternatives, and your own thoughts, Pluto, but the only thing I can think of:)Truth or Dare with Hannu, Dawyn, and Jaaja (and possibly Armas) that has gotten (or will get?) a little out of hoof. Perhaps meeting up somewhere and winding up snowed in somehow, to reflect the colder climate? Drinks, Potions, and mild Hypnosis to add to the chaos. Clothing doesn't stay on forever? Wouldn't have to be lewd from the outset though.Perhaps Smoke and Tanssija having gone off on their own a while ago, the faint squeak of bed springs convincing any that go search for them to stop.Alternatively, Luscinia having to put together the pieces of what happened 'last night', her friends in compromising and tantalizing positions, based around the Truth or Dare thing.
>>39950860Even if you couldn't see the storm you could hear it through the walls of Jaaja's shack. Looking through one of his windows you could see the snow coming down hard, the strong winds blowing the snow almost sideways which created the condition of not being able to see ten feet out, and the amount of it coming down had the result of there already being a foot of snow outside. If you tried to brave the weather it certainly wouldn't end well, even when the town was a five minute trot from Jaaja's.At least you and the others were inside in the warmth. Dawyn had gone with you this time and Hannu had some time off so he managed to teleport over and come with the two of you. The two of them were currently sitting on the couch with Dawyn wrapped up in a blanket to warm up, the three of you were caught in the beginning of the storm and Dawyn had fallen in a snowbank before arriving. Jaaja comes back in, looking over at the three of you."Yeah it looks like this storm is going to stick around for a while," Jaaja confirms, "And with how powerful it is it would be a death sentence to try and brave it.""So, we're stuck here?" Hannu asks."Yep, though it'll hopefully only be for the night." Jaaja nods.What do you do?
>>39951058Taking off our cloak, we consider giving it to Dawyn as an extra layer of warmth, though due to the amount of snow on it, we realize it will soon be waterlogged and drip onto the cold mare and the couch. We set it aside for now, where it won't drip on the floor. Approaching the duo on the couch, we hug the both of them and giving them a kiss on the cheek each, we draw them a little closer together to encourage them to huddle for warmth before stepping back and checking out the room."With how badly it's coming down, it can't last too long, relatively speaking. Is there any further preparation we can do, Jaaja? Otherwise, we'll simply have to sit close and pass the time. I have some thoughts on how to do so."We say, remembering the vodka in our bag, and the distilled spirits likely to be scattered around this place.
>>39951108Taking your cloak off, you consider letting Dawyn use it as an extra layer of warmth, but because of the amount of snow on it you realize that it will soon become waterlogged and the cold melted snow would drip onto the cold mare and couch. You set it aside for now, setting it on a small table where it wouldn't drip onto the floor. Trotting over to the two on the couch, you hug the two of them and give each of them a kiss on the cheek, drawing them closer together so that they were huddling together before you step back."With how badly it's coming down, it can't last too long, relatively speaking," You say, "Is there any further preparation we can do, Jaaja? Otherwise, we'll simply have to sit close and pass the time.""I got the fireplaces going so it should heat up soon," He says, "And for passing the time I haven't really thought of that, didn't expect this weather or to have guests for it. You have some ideas?""I have some thoughts on how to do so." You nod; remembering the vodka in your bag and the distilled spirits that would likely be scattered around Jaaja's home."We could play truth or dare," Hannu suggests, "Should pass the time fine enough. Tanssija used to play it with her friends, so I know what it is."What do you do?
>>39951215"That sounds as decent a plan as any to start with, and I have some alcohol to act as a social lubricant."Taking it from our bag, we set the bottle out for the others to see. Being somewhat familiar with the layout, we check for some small sterile vials to function as shot glasses. Looking to Jaaja for permission, we set them out, pour some shots, and take a drink for ourself, the burn of the alcohol warming us a little. We take a seat on our side on the floor somewhat near the fire, our line of sight about level with the bellies of the others, and the novel experience of looking up at the Buck King and the Dragon Mare, where our Apothecary friend remains as towering as ever."Before we begin properly, Jaaja, there aren't any dangerous ongoing potions, or alcohols you don't want us to have access to, are there? Noone here is stupid, but best to check before hoof.""Hannu, since you were the one to posit we play, how about you begin?"
>>39951215It takes us a moment to recall what truth or dare is. A touch of excitement coming to us after it clicks.I've never had the chance to play before, yes I think that is a fantastic idea. >>39951307Seconded.
>>39951307>>39951414It takes you a moment to recall what Truth or Dare was. Once it does click you get a touch of excitement."I've never had the chance to play before, yes I think that is a fantastic idea," You declare, "I also have some alcohol to act as a social lubricant.""Better than doing nothing," Jaaja agrees, "Let's get started."You take out the vodka from your bag, setting the bottle out for the others to see on a table near the couch that Dawyn and Hannu were on. You then look around for some small sterile vials to serve the function of shot glasses, looking over at Jaaja who nods in confirmation that they are safe to drink. You set them down on the table and pour some shots out for everyone, taking yours to slurp down immediately, the burn of the alcohol helping to warm you up a little. You sit down on the floor, your line of sight about belly level with the others who take their shots and start drinking as well. You get everyone another shot before speaking."Before we begin properly, Jaaja, there aren't any dangerous ongoing potions, or alcohols you don't want us to have access to, are there? No one here is stupid, but best to check before hoof.""Everything that I have out is perfectly safe to drink," He nods, "Everything that isn't safe is stored away.""Hannu, since you were the one to posit we play, how about you begin?""Alright," He nods, "Dawyn, truth or dare?""Truth.""You've truly never had a date before Luscinia?""Never have," She shakes her head, "Luscinia, truth or dare?"What do you do?
>>39951465We think for a moment to ourselves as we look at Dawyn.I think I'll go with dare.'I'm more curious as to what dare she'd ask.'
>>39951465We consider the question for a moment.'Everyone here knows I would answer most questions truthfully. I could say Truth to encourage her to ask something unconventional, but a Dare may be more interesting... will they exploit that fact?'Mentally shaking our head, we answer."Dare."
>>39951487>>39951494You think for a moment as you look at Dawyn.'Everyone here knows I would answer most questions truthfully. I could say truth to encourage her to ask something unconventional, but a dare might be more interesting... will they exploit that fact?'"I think I'll go with dare."'I'm more curious as to what dare she'd ask.'"I dare you to kiss Jaaja."At this, Jaaja's eyes widen and his feathers fluff up slightly.What do you do?
>>39951538We tilt our head blinking, surprised at her bold first dare. Nodding our head after a moment we move over to Jaaja looking him in the eyes wordlessly our muzzle nearly brushing against his beak as we trade breathes. Then we look back at Dawyn, looking her in the eyes as we press forward.Our painted purple lips nestling against the harder beak, we hold it for a good long few seconds before we pull back leaving a purple mark where our lips we planted on the the cute hippogriff.Moving back to where we were to give him some space. Taking a drink of our vodka feeling the warmth from it go down our throat.I hope that everything you wanted it to be Dawyn. Looking back to our wonderful if easily flustered host we smile a touch.Jaaja, truth or dare?If truth."What is the potion you made you had the most fun with?"If dare."Drink a shot of vodka out of Dawyn's cupped claws."
>>39951538Raising an eyebrow with a passive expression, our cheeks are a little flush, and not from the alcohol.'Shame I can't target you, Dawyn, otherwise Hannu would be experiencing those lips for himself after this. Jaaja could target you next though.'Turning to look at the hybrid, and checking that he's not too uncomfortable, outside of the cute reactions more suited for someone Hannu's size, we stand and close the distance purposefully. Lifting a hoof, we straighten a few feathers on his head to soothe him while guiding him closer, our green eyes briming with determination and patience as they meet his. We press our lips to his larger beak, the experience quite novel, the faint taste of fish and aroma of seasalt and feathers washing over us almost tempting us to poke our tongue out. Pulling back after several seconds, we're breathing a little heavier and a tinge more flush as we watch Jaaja. We look at both Dawyn and Hanu contenplatively."Jaaja, Truth or Dare?"Dare: collect a few potions with effects that you deem ranging from embarrassing, sexually gratifying, to mild inconvenient. Remove the labels, bring them here, and if you enjoyed that kiss, drink one at random.Truth: what is the last embarrassing lie you told? Or if you can't think of one, thought you've had. ('Bad' timing for the latter, considering what just happened)>>39951590Seconding! Can't believe I didn't think about lipstick! That is a good Truth though.
>>39951607I think I can see where taking the labels off of those potions will go. Not a bad idea.Seconding.
>>39951590>>39951607>>39951661You tilt your head and raise an eyebrow with a passive expression, surprised at her bold first dare.'Shame I can't target you, Dawyn, otherwise Hannu would be experiencing those lips for himself after this. Jaaja could target you next though.'You look over at the hybrid who looks back at you no longer as surprised as he once was. He eventually takes a slight breath and gives you a nod to go for it. Lifting a hoof up, you straighten a few feathers on his head that remained out to soothe him a bit more while guiding him a bit closer, your green eyes brimming with determination and patience as they meet his. You look back at Dawyn, looking her in the eyes as you press forward. Your painted purple lips nestle against his hard beak, being met with the faint taste of fish and aroma of sea salt and feathers which all almost tempt you to poke your tongue out. You pull back several seconds later to look at the blushing Hippogriff a purple mark left on his beak. After it sinks in Jaaja clears his throat to himself and straightens out some feathers that puffed out once more, his blush still present as you look over at the surprised Hannu and a smiling Dawyn."Jaaja, Truth or Dare?""D-Dare." He stammers."I dare you to collect a few potions with effects that you deem to range from embarrassing, sexually gratifying, and a mild inconvenience. Remove the labels, bring them here, and if you enjoyed that kiss, drink one at random.""Uh... Alright, give me a minute."He gets up and trots out of the room, the three of your hearing the sound of clinking glasses as he sorts through the potions. After a few minutes he returns with ten different bottles in his claws, setting them down on the table and uncorking a potion with a purple colored liquid that he takes a gulp of. He lets out a satisfied sigh afterwards and sits back down, looking over the three of you."The effects will take a few minutes," He says, "Dawyn, Truth or Dare?""Dare.""This vodka is pretty strong, so I dare you to take three shots of it."She blinks at this and looks down at her shot. After a few moments her clawed hoof takes it and she downs it, repeating the process two more times. By the time she was done with the last one she lets out a slight cough, a blush on her face from the burning sensation she was probably feeling."F-Fuck, that is strong," She coughs, "H-Hannu, Truth or Dare?""Truth.""Luscinia has mentioned your relationship a bit. Any mares catch your eye since she left?""Well... there is a servant doe that has caught my eye, haven't really talked to her though," He says; blushing slightly before looking over at you, "Luscinia, Truth or Dare?"What do you do?
>>39951778We smile a little at Hannu's admission. Without much thought, we opt again for Dare."Dare. And I will be getting more details about that doe from you in future, Hannu."We do keep a passive eye on Jaaja, curious about his potion, especially with our low vantage point, but most of our attention centers on Hannu for the moment.
>>39951778Dare. What have you got in mind? This was a fantastic idea, I'm thoroughly entertained and we've only just begun.>>39951803Seconded.
>>39951803>>39951810You smile a bit at Hannu's admission. Without much thought you speak up."Dare. What have you got in mind? This was a fantastic idea, I'm thoroughly entertained and we've only just begun," You ramble a bit, "And I will be getting more details about that does from you in the future, Hannu."Hannu looks up in thought. As he thinks you keep a passive eye on Jaaja, curious about the potion he downed but as you were unable to see the effects at the moment even with your low vantage point. A chuckle from Hannu causes you to look back at him, having gotten an idea that seems funny to him."This is a game, so I absolutely mean no offense when I say this to you, Luscinia," He tells you between chuckles, "Heh, with assets like the ones you have I've been a bit confused by your heritage. I dare you to explain how you aren't related to a cow."What do you do?
>>39951840 a bit disappointed we didn't choose truth. A fun truth he could have asked would be: Who's the better kisser: Me, or Dawyn?We nibble on our mane as we process what he dared us to do. After a moment, we down a shot of vodka and look at him with confidence."That's more of a truth, wouldn't you think? But alright. If it's a biology lesson you want, who am I not to provide one?"We first start by lifting a hoof."Like deer, Bovines have cloven hooves. If I was related to a cow, my hooves, and by extension my legs, would be slimmer and narrow down to the hoof. I would rely on balancing more with my hooves rather than my legs."We take off our cloak and turn around to show off our flanks."My tale is mostly hair with a dock that keeps it in place(?) While it can be debated, my flanks would be more rotund than they are now. You and Dawyn have both felt them yourselves. Can you tell me if you felt more muscle than fat?" As we say the word 'fat' we give one of our flanks a slap.After their answer, we take off our bra and lifting our clothes revealing our girls for everyone to see and propping them up and given them a light jiggle."And finally, and what I believe is your true intention for this dare, I have two breasts and no udders to speak of. I can also go in depth of how I only have one stomach and the different taste of Pony meat and Cow meat, but I think I've proven my point."
>>39951840>>39951943(me, forgot.)Dawyn, Truth or dare?Truth:"Are you more into flanks, or breasts?"Dare:"I dare you to join me in being topless(?) Bottomless(?)Alt: I was thinking about these further down the line when we're all good and drunk, but I don't know how long we're going to play this game.Alternate Dare:"I dare you at stay still for thirty seconds while being cursed with the Curse of Heat."Before she could say anything we chant the curse."syha'h gotha'bthnk"We watch her intently as we count to 30 in our head.Alternate Truth:"You had a chance to date a few stallions since we last met, right? What's better? Eating a mare out, or sucking off a stallion?"
>>39951840Our brow furrows for a moment, a hint of annoyance striking us. The cow comment not bothering us, rather it was his positing a truth as a dare that irked.Taking a breath the sour emotion bubbles away into nothing and we smirk.Hmm... Well I only know so much for certain about my heritage, what I do know is the 'assets' you're are referring to are a trait from my mothers side of the family. Meaning that yes, there is quite possibly a older mare out there with a form to match my own.Beyond that, I don't know where I came from. But~ This was a dare, not a truth.Standing and slipping free of our cloak feeling plenty warm enough from the fire and the alcohol.If I were related to a cow, you'd expect to see more than one dominant trait if your hypothesis is true, at least with how prominently that particular trait is shining through. Outside of you suspecting my line of being selectively bred for that one particular... Result.I don't have any of the usual trappings that'd denote a hybrid of some kind either, my hooves, gut system, teeth, and spine fail to tell any sign they have any influence from a source other than pony.As we go over each of these things listing them off we move a hoof to direct their attention to those spots. We get a little quieter for a moment.Besides my milk tastes nothing like a cows and the nutrient content and concentration is very different.Raising our voice back to normal.Dawyn I think I owe you for before. Truth or dare?If truth. Have you ever seen a dragon's... Undercarriage? Male female, whatever the equipment it doesn't matter.If dare. Do a dance on the middle of the table, shake your tail up there for a minute.>>39951943Seconding this! It is perfect, I wanted to do the same thing basically.>>39951966Seconding, these are also pretty great ideas. I don't mind whichever ones we go with here.Listing down some of my own ideas just in case.Dares.Someone has to go outside sit down in the fresh fallen snow without any pants or covering, leaving an impression of their parts.Someone has to drink a shot/potion out of either Dawyn's or Luscinia's Belly button. (Or from between Luscinia's teats.)Someone has to try Luscinia's cooking.Dawyn has to sit in one of the boys laps until she's had two turns there or another dare forces them to move.Dawyn switches clothes with Hannu or Jaaja.Any, give one person a massage, trying to make them moan as loudly as possible without touching any private parts.Read aloud a sexually charge passage while the others try to make you mess up without touching you, if you do you must restart.TruthsJaaja, Did you have any more dreams about Luscinia.Hannu, Do the maids clean up after His and Luscinia's talks through the mirror.Dawyn What do you think Hannu and Jaaja cocks taste like.AnyWhat is your deepest darkest fetish/What is the fetish that turns you on most.What is the horniest thing you've ever done.
>>39951842Morning, Pluto!>>39951943>>39952089Seconding both of these!We already removed our snow covered cloak earlier. Also, if Dawyn were to sit on a lap, she might have to sit belly to belly, gripping her partner to maintain balance, or have her tail press against some intimate bits.
>>39951840Blushing a little, more so from Hannu's confidence than embarrassment."I fail to see why you would draw a connection between myself and a bovine, Moo. Certain traits may be hereditary, and the most common profession for Earth Ponies may be farmwork, but I hope my biological mother never learns you accused her of being a cow... I believe she would call herself a dairy farmer."Keeping an even tone, slightly indignant tone as we jape, we can't help cracking a momentary smile at Hannu's/everyone's reaction."More to the point, my coat is not greyscale and is free of any spots or splotches. And while perhaps I've the height of a heifer, my hips haven't a holstein's heft, Hannu. I could scarcely imagine why you'd ever compare me to a mammal made for milking, mooing, and making merry..."Pausing for a moment, we lick our lips to wet them, mumbling a little aliterative tongue twister that popped into our head."Hmm, milk maid made milk. I might need a hoof with that, Hannu, should I ever have any fawns."Thinking perhaps the others manage to get the truth out of Luscinia a few times simply by chatting, and Luscinia being too drunk and earnest, doesn't realize at first.>>39951661To be completely honest, I didn't see that angle (ie, confusing potions for shots), just meant to be completely unable to determine which potion was which.>>39952298Also, didn't consider it before, but since this is a dream, us not wearing the cloak doesn't mean we can't take it off again.Would like to think of more than a few truths/dares for the collection, but I'll likely have time as needed, especially if we spend a post reacting to whatever Jaaja has cooking. For some reason, I imagine Dawyn or Luscinia daring the boys to hold hooves, and somehow making it lewd by having the other mare sit squished between the two on the couch.Truth, Dawyn on what she prefers to 'use' more, her tongue, her claws, or her tail.
>>39951943>>39951966>>39952089>>39952298>>39952613You furrow your brows as you nibble your mane, a hint of annoyance striking you. The cow comment didn't bother you at all, rather it was the positing a truth as a dare that irked you a bit. Not enough to majorly put you off though."That's more of a truth, wouldn't you think?""It was the best one I could come up with." He admits with a shrug."Alright, if it's a biology lesson you want, who am I not to provide one?"You down your shot of vodka and stand up, blushing a bit but giving the buck a look of confidence."I only know so much for certain about my heritage, what I do know is the 'assets' you're referring to are a trait from my mother's side of the family. Meaning that yes, there is quite possibly a older mare out there with a form to match my own. Beyond that, I don't know much about where I came from but enough to know it's hereditary, and the most common profession for Earth Ponies may be farmwork, but I hope my biological mother never learns you accused her of being a cow... I believe she would call herself a dairy farmer."Keeping an even tone with a slight indignation as you gape, you crack a momentary smile as Hannu blushes a bit."If I were related to a cow you'd expect to see more than one dominant trait if your hypothesis is true, at least with how prominently that particular trait is shining through. Outside of you suspecting my line of being selectively bred for that one particular... result," You begin, "Like Deer, Bovines have cloven hooves. If I was related to a cow, my hooves, and by extension my legs, would be slimmer and narrow down to the hoof. I would rely on balancing more with my hooves rather than my legs. My coat is not greyscale and is free of any spots or splotches. And while perhaps I have the height of a heifer, my hips haven't a holstein's heft."Turning on your hooves you show off your flanks to the three."My tail is mostly hair with a dock that keeps it in place. While it can be debated, my flanks would be more rotund than they are now. You and Dawyn have both felt them yourselves. Can you tell me if you felt more muscle than fat?"As you say the word 'fat' you lift a hoof up and lightly slap one of your flanks."I think I felt a bit more... muscle." Hannu says after a moment.After getting this answer you reach around to unclip your bra, letting it slide off as you lift your clothes to reveal your girls for everyone to see. Jaaja quickly looks away while Hannu blushes more and Dawyn gets a blush of her own."I could scarcely imagine why you'd ever compare me to a mammal made for milking, mooing, and making merry..."Cont.
>>39953078You pause, licking you lips to wet them, mumbling a little tongue twister that suddenly popped into your head."Hmm, milk maid made milk. I might need a hoof with that, Hannu, should I ever have any fawns."Hannu just blinks at this before taking his shot and downing it. You turn back around and sit down, not bothering to put your bra back on."Dawyn, I think I owe you for before. Truth or Dare?""Dare!""I dare you to join me in being topless."She blushes at this, looking back at herself in contemplation."...A-Alright."She stands up and moves her cloak and dress to the side a bit, showing off her brightly colored panties and bra as she works it off. She soon gets it where her bra then falls to the floor as gravity causes her supple, and rounded teats to bounce a bit. Everyone's eyes focus on them for a moment as her nipples are exposed for a second before she puts her dress and cloak back and sits back down."Jaaja, Truth or Dare?""T-Truth." He stammers; blushing a bit and shuffling slightly in place."What's the dirtiest potion you've made?""Uh... a-a heat potion, t-that works on stallions as w-well as mares," He explains; drinking down his shot shortly after, "Luscinia, Truth or D-Dare?"What do you do?
>>39953106We stare contemplatively into Jaaja's eyes and soul, the purple on his beak reminding us of the purple potion he'd imbibed, which coupled with his truthful admission and slight shuffling, has us wondering.'He could be embarrassed, considering there are two naked mares in his home, but the question remains if he'd consider such a potion to be minor enough to collect and imbibe?... Tempting as it is to go with Dare again, and see what Jaaja might do, I have to go Truth sometimes...'"Truth. Hope you weren't banking on Dare for another chance at my lips."We pucker our lips a little
>>39953106I do wonder what you've got swirling around your head for me, but I think I'll try the other part of this game. Truth, anything about me or that I might know what would you like to gleam from me.>>39953155seconded
>>39953155You stare contemplatively into Jaaja's eyes and soul, finding some nervousness and a bit of slight excitement, the purple on his beak that he never wiped away reminding you of the purple potion he imbibed, which coupled with his truthful admission and slight shuffling had you wondering.'He could be embarrassed, considering there are two naked mares in his home, but the question remains if he'd consider such a potion to be minor enough to collect and imbibe? Tempting as it is to go with Dare again and see what Jaaja might do, I have to go with Truth sometimes...'"Truth," You reply, "Hope you weren't banking on Dare for another chance at my lips."You pucker your lips a bit at him which makes him look around. A moment goes by when he looks back at you and speaks, his question quite simple but it still surprises you slightly."You have a fetish, L-Luscinia?"Hannu, who was drinking a shot, chocks on his vodka a bit and doubles over, not having expecting Jaaja to ask that question to you. Dawyn giggles a bit before letting out a quiet 'ooo'.What do you do?
>>39953259It's our turn to blush, not answering the question right away and needing a shot of vodka to answer this."I never gave him much thought... I need a moment to think about this." We say, pouring another shot and downing it."...I think the term is called cucking? Where I watch as someone has intercourse with someone I know?""It doesn't have to be bound to a chair either. I think being possessed and being forced to watch someone use my body to have sex would be pretty hot. Even voodoo, where I have no control of myself and have do it with someone."(I threw those last two in last minute.)
>>39953259If our cheeks weren't already red, we'd be blushing, but we do grin, spotting a clever little flaw in his wording, deciding to throw him a bone."A, fetish? Would you define an appreciation for most sapient beings as a fetish? What about an enjoyment of being laid out and absolutely ravaged? Or the inverse, to have another on leash and collar as you direct their pleasure and your own? The thrill of nearly being discovered, the shiver of catching many eyes with a sizeable rack, the feeling of hooves and antlers, scales and fangs, beak and claws, perhaps even the risk of primal fornication during the height of estrus..."Leaning back a little, we pretend to inspect a hoof, our body shifting just enough for our teats to slide a few inches as well, a little more being shown off as we watch the trio's hindlegs/thighs out of the corner of our eye."In truth, I don't have a fetish, Jaaja... I have several.""Hannu, Truth or Dare?"Truth: Describe in detail when you first noticed that servant doe. What drew your eye?Dare: Wear my bra on your antlers for (3?) turns, or drink a potion~ Alternatively: Share with the rest of the group the last naughty thing you read.>>39953295Seconding! Voodoo and possession stuff is fun.
>>39953295>>39953313It was your turn to blush, not answering the question right away and needing to down some vodka to do so."I never gave it much thought... I need a moment to think about this." You tell him; pouring another shot out and downing it."Understandable." He smiles."...I think the term is called cucking? Where I watch as someone has intercourse with someone I know? It doesn't have to be bound to a chair either. I think being possessed and being forced to watch someone use my body to have sex would be pretty hot. Even voodoo, where I have no control of myself and have to do it with someone.""So, if Hannu started fucking Dawyn and you were forced to watch you would be into that?" Jaaja asks with a small smirk.You don't answer that as you instead realize that there was a little flaw in his wording, so you press it."Would you define an appreciation for most sapient beings as a fetish? What about any enjoyment of being laid out and absolutely ravaged? Or the inverse, to have another on leash and collar as you direct their pleasure and your own? The thrill of nearly being discovered, the shiver of catching many eyes with a sizeable rack, the feeling of hooves and antlers, scales and fangs, beak and claws, perhaps even the risk of primal fornication during the height of estrus..."As you keep going Jaaja's blush grows along with Hannu's, the Hippogriff's shuffling increasing in frequency. He eventually raises a claw up."A-Alright, Luscinia, you made your point!"You lean back at this, pretending to inspect a hoof, your body shifting just enough for your teats to slide out a few inches, a little more being shown off as you watch the three of them and notice that Dawyn had her hind legs crossed."In truth, I don't have a fetish, Jaaja... I have several~," You finish; looking over at Hannu, "Hannu, Truth or Dare?""Truth.""Can you describe in detail when you first noticed that servant doe. What drew your eye?""Well... I was in the library reading when she came in. She's a Peryton, a Deer with a fluffy pair of wings, with a greenish-brown coat and a long, light purple mane. I'm not sure if she saw that I was there, because she flew up to do her work and was at the perfect height and angle that I could see... things I probably shouldn't see in public. Didn't help that she was very nice on the eyes."He downs his shot. As he does you look around at the others. A good amount of the vodka had been drank at this point and everyone was starting to feel the effects of it, especially Dawyn who had the most thanks to the dare to drink a bit extra. He sets his cup down and looks over at Dawyn."Dawyn, Truth or Dare?""Mmm... Truth~.""What do you prefer to 'use' more, Dawyn: tongue, claws, or tail?"Cont.
>>39953544"I... enjoy using my claws, helping others to 'scratch' that itch they just can't seem to reach," She grins; placing a hoof on her cheek, "Tail is fun as well, let them get a peek at their prize~."She takes a drink of her vodka and then looks over at you."Truth or Dare, Lusci?"What do you do?
>>39953549Head abuzz with possibilities, between what Hannu just described to us, Jaaja's attempt at a jab and obvious 'discomfort', and Dawyn's crossed legs and use of our nickname, we bit our lip as we consider things, a hind hoof shifting to try and brush our thighs together, but we stifle it."... Dare. I leave my fate in your capable claws, Dawyn."
>>39953549I think I want another dare. Have you got anything interesting in mind?'Going to have to tease Tanssija later about her pervert brother.'>>39953568Seconded.
>>39953568>>39953797Head buzzing with endless possibilities, between what Hannu just described to you, Jaaja's attempt at a jab and obvious 'discomfort', and Dawyn's crossed legs and use of your nickname, you bite your lip as you consider the options, a hind hoof shifting behind you to try and brush your thighs together, but you stifle it and look over at her."I think I want another dare. Have you got anything interesting in mind?"'Going to have to tease Tanssija later about her perverted brother.'Wordlessly, Dawyn gets up moves closer to you, sitting down next to you where she lifts a hoof up and cups your cheek."Make out with me~."Before you could say anything she leans forward and presses her lips against yours, keeping them there.What do you do?
>>39953812Our eyes widen a touch as we freeze for only a moment before we push back into the kiss with her.Our own lips part barely our tongue slipping out to press against her own pillowy lips. Lifting our hooves we wrap them around her one lightly brushing against her wings and the other brushing at her hips. Little by little we pull her into our grasp setting her flanks pressing down against the soft flesh of our teats as they squish slightly under her weight.Out of the corner of our eye we look at Hannu and Jaaja, checking their reactions as we keep this going until Dawyn pulls back since she didn't set a time limit.
>>39953812It takes us a moment to register, but when we do, we don't hesitate, pulling her in close and messing lips."Mmm~" we moan, parting them to release our tongue and push it into her mouth and tilting our head to shove it at deep as it can go.All the while our hooves feel around her, one stroking her mane and the other reaching down to cope a feel of her teets.
>>39953812Blinking past our initial surprise, we waste little time after the familiar lips press against our own, our mouth opening so that we can bully her little tongue with our own. The taste of the alcohol noticeable as we poke against her cute canines, Tilting our head with a little moan.Our hooves shoot down to her flanks, supporting her half perched on our teats with hindlegs spreading to support the both of us. Rubbing the outside of her (cloak/cloths?), we slip our hooves under after a moment to hold the somewhat curvy Dragony, teasing the base of her tail to coax it to rise slowly, taking her modesty with it. Supporting her tail with one hoof, we place the other one on her rump, just centered enough to censor any glimpse of her holes and show off her scaled flank to the boys, spying on their souls through closed eyes and with our ears for their reactions.
>>39953900>>39953890Seconding both of these.
>>39953889>>39953890>>39953900Your eyes widen as touch as you freeze for just a moment before pushing back into the kiss."Mmm~..."You moan, parting your lips to release your tongue into her mouth where it bullies her smaller tongue. The taste of alcohol apparent as you poke your tongue against her cute canines, tilting your head to shove it as deep as it could past this.Your hooves spend some time rubbing her back, unsure of what exactly to do and where to rub. They eventually split off with your right hoof brushing against a wing as it ascends, stopping when it reaches the top of her head to stroke it. The left one descends down, brushing her hips and getting her whole body to twitch at the feeling on it's way down to her flanks, helping to support her as you pull her into your grasp setting her flanks down on the soft flesh of your teats. The hoof rubbing her head makes it's descent as well, but it goes around the front to cop a feel of one of her teats as it goes, the Dragon Pony mare twitching and moaning at the touch. With both of your hooves at her flanks you use them to hold the somewhat curvy Dragon Mare, teasing the base of her tail to get it to rise up slowly and take her modesty away. Once it was up high enough you support her tail with a hoof, the other remaining centered on her rump to censor any glimpse of her holes and show her scaled flank to the males.This had certainly got their attentions, Hannu's eyes glued to the two of you flicking between your face and Dawyn's rump, his forehooves together in front of him obviously trying to hide a part of him that wanted to show off. Jaaja was doing his best to cover his eyes and look away, though you could see his claw was parted slightly and an eye open to see through the crack. After a minute Dawyn separates from the kiss, her hooves wrapping around your back while she leans against you and places her head on your shoulder. She then looks over at the two males, a drunken smile on her face."You two don't want to join," She pouts a little, "There's plenty of room~."This is the only convincing Hannu needs to get up and trot around the table to the two of you. Jaaja doesn't move from his spot, but he does lower his claw down to look at the two of you fully.What do you do?
>>39954029"Don't be shy, Jaaja. Even if you don't want to join, you don't need to be so modest. She didn't dare me to do this; this is a different game entirely. I encourage you to watch, even masturbate if you want to."As we tell him this, our teet-holding hoof moves down to her wet snatch and latching on to her panties and pushing them down and to the side. Meanwhile, our tail-holding hoof lifts it higher so there's a clear target for Hannu to drive his spear into."My marefriend is needy, my king. Care to help her in her time of need?"We lean up to him and lock lips to encourage him to fuck our mare.
>>39954029Looking over at Jaaja a soft little grin on our lips we wink at him.Truth or dare Jaaja.Truth, what's stopping you from getting closer?Dare, Until you next... Finish, you need to listen and follow our instructions on how to please yourself.>>39954090Seconding! This is perfect.
>>39954029Being (part of) the center of attention, we bit our lip as our loins wink, silently wondering when we got so warm down below. A little too wrapped up in watching our buckfriend's almost-regal approach, and the fact that he'll likely mount our cute marefriend in the near future, we almost miss Jaaja's lingering as we attempt to catch a glimpse of 'the crown jewels'. Almost. We let him have a moment of peace to enjoy the view as we address our short king."Hmm, just like a king to want to lay with a dragon... Fortunately, this one seems willing and eager already. Will you require a hoof with your armor and shining your sword, or shall the dragon be your maid this evening as well?"We ask, intent on pressing the image of Dawyn in a maid outfit onto our already hot and bothered buckfriend.All the while, subtly swaying Dawyn's rump back and forth, our teats follow in the action, watching Jaaja's eyes/head out of the corner of our own as our hooves explore her rump a little more as we try to gauge where his interest lies, briefly stroking the underside of Dawyn's tail like a phallus, nibbling on her neck to get her to moan. (Assuming he doesn't draw closer, and/or it seems we can get him to come closer, and/or he gets hard)"Jaajaaa~"We call, dragging out the vowels in a low, husky 'whisper' that we doubt he's heard from us before, a little smirk on our lips. "If you're intent on ignoring a mare's invitation and keeping your distance, at least enjoy yourself. If you insist on games, though: Truth or Dare?"Truth: Why don't you share the details of that little potion?(Can't think of a Dare atm)>>39954090>>39954120Thought she ditched her panties with her bra, but seems it was only that latter. Seconding both of these!
>>39954090>>39954120>>39954155Being apart of the center of attention, you bite your lip as your loins wink, silently wondering to yourself when you had gotten so warm down below. Too wrapped up in watching your buckfriend's almost regal-like approach, and the fact he'll likely mount your cute marefriend in the near future, you almost miss Jaaja's lingering as you watch the bobbling of his erect red and brown crown jewels."Hmm, just like a king to want to lay with a Dragon... Fortunately, this one seems willing and eager already."As you say this, your teat holding hoof moves down to her wet snatch all the while Dawyn looks back with a needy look, latching onto her panties and pushing them down and to the side to expose her to the buck king. Your tail holding hoof then lifts higher so that there was a very clear target for Hannu."My marefriend is needy, my king. Will you require a hoof with your armor and shining your sword, or shall the Dragon be your maid this evening as well?"You ask while subtly swaying Dawyn's rump back and forth at him, your teats following the action. Out of the corner of your eye you watch Jaaja as your hooves explore her rump a bit more, the Hippogriff's eyes moving with the swaying of her rump betraying the fact that he was very much interested. Despite this interest he still doesn't move. As Hannu gets closer you start to stroke the underside of Dawyn's tail like it was a large phallus, leaning forward to nibble on her neck."Mmm~!"Hannu soon reaches the two of you, his forehooves coming forward to gently push the two of you so that you were on your back and Dawyn on top of you. Once both of you were in position he mounts Dawyn."As kind of an offer as that is, I believe this little Dragon here will provide all the help I need." He informs you.Cont.
>>39954259You look back at Jaaja who still hadn't moved. You decide to try and encourage him."Jaajaaaa~..."You call out to him, dragging the vowels out in a low, husky 'whisper'. His feathers puff up and he looks over at you, his eyes meeting your smirk."Don't be shy, Jaaja. If you're intent on ignoring a mare's invitation and keeping your distance, at least enjoy yourself. She didn't dare me to do this; this is a different game entirely. You can watch, even masturbate if you want to," You tell him, "If you insist on games though: Truth or Dare?"He's silent for several moments."...T-Truth.""What's stopping you from getting closer?""C-Cause you- I-I...Y-You're a..."Keeping your eyes locked to his you lean up and lock lips with Dawyn again, encouragement for both Hannu and Jaaja."...Fuck it!"It works as Jaaja stands up and walks over to you, your eyes immediately set on his bobbing red member that tapered a bit at the tip, sporting a bulge at the base like a knot. He stops in front of your head, the red cock tantalizingly swaying in front of your face."Hmph~!"A second later Dawyn lets out a loud, muffled cry into you, her entire body shifting as Hannu thrusts his spear into her. You feel a few drops of her juices splatter down onto your dress, making your lower lips wink against your panties.What do you do?
>>39954272Breaking the kiss so we can hear Dawyn's unmuffled moans, her sounds being music to our ears we tilt our head back and start to kiss Jaaja's length smacking our lips against it's underside until we're nuzzling into his balls.Lifting our higher hoof we bring it to the back of Dawyn's head, gently we direct her forwards and start to rub her snout against his tip.
>>39954272We release Dawyn's lips and look to Jaaja."I'll take care of you in a moment."We then lock eyes on Dawyn as we reach down to our own panties to take them off then lift our dress so our nethers kiss with hers and passively grind into Hannu's cock as he pounds inside of her."You orgasmed quickly. How bad are you down?""You won't last very long like this. This rare moment to have, and I want you to last for as long as you can. I can help you with that, but I need you to trust me. Do you trust me, Sweetie?"If she does, we chant the Curse of Heat on Dawyn."syha'h gotha'bthnk"After the curse activates, we look to Hannu, shifting our hind legs to grind our nethers in our restricted position."Make sure you pull out, Hannu, or cum inside me, unless you want to explain why your heirs have scales."We then look back to Jaaja."Now to help you out. Get closer, will you?"Once he does, we shift ourself so both our and Dawyn's heads are parallel to his cock. We then lean forward to kiss Dawyn, Jaaja's cock between both of our lips, our tongues dancing around his member, and taking turns passing it along towards each other's mouths.>"C-Cause you- I-I...Y-You're a..."Hmm... I wonder what that finished that would have been?
>>39954272>>39954446 (me)Thinking on it, I think it's wrong to deny her the chance to be filled.>"Make sure you pull out, Hannu, or cum inside me, unless you want to explain why your heirs have scales."Change to:"The more she cums, the needier she'll become. Hannu, would you honor us with your fawns allow her to boon the first of your heirs?"
>>39954446>>39954539Seconded.Inb4 we cast the heat curse in our sleep.
>>39954272Shiver at her being penetrated, our body acting as a bed/foundation to our lovers' fornication, every droplet hitting our body matched by another staining our panties.We'd intented to pester him a little more about his potion earlier, but that thought slips away as our eyes track the hypnotic/suggestive sway of Jaaja's member, the shock of color sharply contrasting his (black and white/salt and pepper?/greyscale) coat, not to mention the chance to study the fine specimen up close, marveling at how his biology is blended down here. A few traits we recognize from our knowledge of stallions; the bumpy crown on his narrowed tip reminiscent of a flare, a more prominent vein along the underside we can trace back to his sheath, and a distinct circular ridge that reminds of a medial ring. These allow us to extrapolate what he likely acquired from his griffon side: the striking color, the sleek texture, the taper that makes it look girthier, not to mention that curious bulge, all making us curious about how sensitive each part might be.Try to lick our lips as we watch the bobbing tip leak 'bird seed', but Dawyn's are in the way.Tentative sniff, the heady scent/promise of frustrated Hippogriff mixed with the fragrant excitement of our buckfriend rutting our marefriend above us, prompting a wink from our lazy clit, just in time for Hannu's sack to smack our loins.Jostled/startled by the thrust/contact, our body inches closer with a gasp, several inches of hot shaft suddenly brushing against our face as we're greeted with a much better view. Leaning forwards, we pin it to (his belly/Dawyn's face), lightly marking his shaft/pristine orbs with purple as we pepper it with kisses, a small tuft of fur on his sheath tickling our snout.Our grip does shift a little, a hoof on either side of Dawyn's tail, stroking and caressing the scales while helping to hold her steady. Taking the hoof 'north' of her tail, we grasp one of Hannu's, gently squeezing it in our excitement as we move it (to be mistaken as encouragement?), before placing and holding the more dainty cloven hoof at the base of Dawyn's tail, where we know a bundle of nerves to be, and surmise a good control point to help Hannu make quick jabs through the Dragon's armor.Using our hindlegs to lift Dawyn's, propping her rear up mostly on our teats and leaving little resistance against Hannu's thrusts, forcing her to make use of her claws and wings?Bit of a rush, and want to get this out early, so sorry for the jumbled state.Thought: Jaaja lacking in Hannu's regality, but still possessing a grace of his own, even with the awkwardness, inexperience, and clear frustration.
>>39954339>>39954446Seconding both of these! Thinking it's worth considering the fact that Luscinia's knowledge of oral is established near nonexistent (didn't think to fit Hannu in her mouth as it didn't seem possible, and opted to lick him clean): can she even imagine penetration, or would it simply be too much?Suspect the "Cause you're a..." might have been finished with friend.>>39954997Heat curse would be amusing, the Dragon Mare humping us in her sleep, plagued by sweet dreams. She might ask about our party trick ('spell').
>>39955382Seconding.>>39955388Right, her lack of knowledge in that area is a fun idea. I imagine she's going to read about oral in one of her many lewd books and think it's highly unrealistic exaggeration.someone needs to teach her how to give a blow job.
>>39954339>>39954446>>39954539>>39954997>>39955382>>39955388>>39955418You let out a full body shiver at her getting penetrated, your body acting as a bed to your lovers' fornication. You release Dawyn's lips so that you could hear her unmuffled moans, your ears angling themselves towards her as the sound becomes music to them. You look back at Jaaja with a smile."I'll be with you in a moment~."You then lock eyes with Dawyn as you reach down to your own panties and slide them off, then lifting your hips up so that your nethers kiss hers and passively grind into Hannu's cock as he starts to thrust into her. She was already completely soaked, her juices smearing across your flower."You orgasmed quickly," You note, "How down bad are you?""V-Very~..." She pants; already enjoying herself."You won't last too long like this. This rare moment to have, and I want you to last for as long as you can," You tell her, "I can help you with that, but I need you to trust me. Do you trust me, Sweetie?""G-Go ahead, d-do it! Haaaah~!"With her permission you chant the Curse of Heat onto her."Syha'h gotha'bthnk."The effect is immediate as she lets out a low, drawn out moan and nearly collapses, Hannu's cock and your flower being met by a deluge of her juices. You look over at Hannu as he stops for a moment."The more she cums, the needier she'll become. Hannu, would you honor us with your fawns, allow her to boon the first of your heirs?""Gladly~!" He smiles; resuming his thrusts into her making her moan loudly with each one.You finally look back at Jaaja once again who was just staring at the scene with is beak open slightly."Now to help you out. Get closer, will you?"He shuffles forward at this though your gaze begins to track his length, the shock of collar sharply contrasting with the greyscale of his coat and feathers, not to mention that your brain was abuzz studying the specimen up close, marveling at how his biology manages to blend down there. There were several traits that you recognized on him from stallions; the bumpy crown on his narrowed tip that reminded you of a flare, a more prominent vein along the underside that you could trace to his sheath, a circular ridge like a medial ring. All of this allows you to guess what was from the Griffon side: it's striking color, sleek texture, taper that made it look girthier, and the curious bulge at the base.Cont.
>>39955843You give it a tentative sniff, the promise of frustrated Hippogriff mixed with the fragrant excitement of your buckfriend rutting your marefriend above you prompting a wink from your so far lazy clit, just in time for Hannu's sack to come down and smack into it.Startled by the contact, your body is forced forward and inch with a gasp, several inches of hot shaft suddenly brushing up against your face with the tip poking at Dawyn's neck. You lean forward to pin his shaft to Dawyn's face, lightly marking his pristine orbs with purple while Dawyn starts to lick his length.Your grip on Dawyn shifts a little while this happens, a hoof now on either side of her tail to stroke and caress the scales while keeping her steady for Hannu. You also use your hind legs to lift Dawyn up, propping her rear on your teats and leaving little resistance to Hannu's thrusts, forcing her to spread her wings out and grip the floor to keep from falling.While Dawyn is gripped by pleasure you continue to tend Jaaja, licking and lapping at his balls and length. You could sense that he was beginning to want more though, thrusting slightly against your lips. After a minute he pulls back from your completely, leaving you in confusion before he thrusts forward to poke his tip against your cheek. This makes you open your mouth in surprise, giving him the window he needed to slide his tip over your lips and slide it into your mouth.What do you do?
>>39955858After the initial surprise passes, the real shock sets in. Not at Jaaja's action, but at the fact that this had never even occurred to us, the texture and detail we can derive from this method much better on a macro level, and from what we can see and hear with our view of Jaaja's sack, tense thighs, and lightly twitching tail, he's getting a lot of enjoyment as well, the clear lipstick marks on his otherwise immaculate white sack making our cheeks burn as it advance. A part of us can't help wondering how he expects our jaw to handle even half of him, though that hardly keeps us from running our tongue rapidly over his tip, a little bit of mana coursing through our lips to tighten and toughen them, ensuring his progress into the hole is slowed at first, but never stopped. Our hooves aren't exactly idle either, gripping a little tighter at Dawyn's rump and tail, with our hindlegs quaking slightly, but we can't move without risking the rutting pair falling and interrupting them, an unthinkable thought, which leaves us unintentionally trapped, almost like a fuckable piece of furniture.The mental image of what's happening above us alone gives us shivers, as if we can't feel each time our pillowy teats cushion Hannu's humping, or hear Dawyn's moans so close to out exposed throat, the Dragon Mare's womb only minutes away from carrying a set of royal fawns. To say nothing of the cute Hippogriff exploring our previously virgin maw throughout all this.'I'm going to cum from having my face rutted and body used as a bed, aren't I.'Sorry, got busy with some BS, and had to take some time to write this. Will try to add a little more when I have a moment.
>>39955858We gasp around his tip.'It was so large, how does it fit I... What do I even do with it in there, keep licking?'
>>39956079>>39956156You gasp around the tip, surprised at the suddeness.'It's so large, how does it fit I... What do I even do with it in there, keep licking?'After the initial surprise passes, the real shock of the situation sets in. Not at Jaaja's action, but at the fact that this had never occurred to you, the texture and detail can derive from this method much better on a macro level, and from what you could manage to see and hear with your view of Jaaja's sack, tense thighs, and twitching tail, he was getting a lot of enjoyment out of it. A part of you wonders how he expects your jaw to handle even half of his length, though that doesn't keep you from running your tongue rapidly over his tip, a little bit of mana coursing through your lips to tighten and toughen them, ensuring that his progress is slow at first, but never stopping him completely.Your hooves aren't idle through this either, gripping Dawyn's rump and tail tighter, your hind legs quaking from all the sensations you were experiencing, but you couldn't move without risking the rutting pair falling and interrupting their session leaving you unintentionally trapped and at their mercy, like a fuckable piece of furniture.The lewd moans and slaps continue about you giving you a good mental image of what was happening, as if you can't feel each time your pillowy teats cushion Hannu's humping, or hear Dawyn's moans so close to your exposed throat, the Dragon Mare's womb only minutes away from carrying a set of royal fawns. To say nothing of the cute Hippogriff exploring your previously virgin maw throughout the experience.'I'm going to cum from having my face rutted and body used as a bed, aren't I.'This question rings in your head as Jaaja pushes his cock past your lips, seemingly mindful of the quirks of his length as he stops at his medial ring. Once there though he pulls back and thrusts back up to it, repeating the process as he builds up speed in fucking your mouth. From behind you could feel Hannu build up speed as well which is felt by your teats swaying a bit further. Dawyn's moans start to get louder and, seeking to at least muffle herself, she latches her mouth down on your throat. Gently though as you feel her fangs merely rub up against your skin, her tongue flicking out to lick at it as well.What do you do?
>>39956079>like a fuckable piece of furniture.You say that like it's a bad thing.
>>39956203Where the previous rhythm of Hannu rolling Dawyn across our sensitive teats and Jaaja's gentle probing had lulled us into an almost collected calm, marked with soft hum as tingles traveled from our teats to our loins, the sudden attack from Dawyn on our neck throws us off kilter, and the mounting speed only makes things worse. Our eyes roll back before closing as we begin to moan in earnest around the Hippogriff meat, pressing our throat to Dawyn's lips, our thighs trying and failing to press together for some more direct stimulation.Rolling our hips in an attempt to bring our marehood closer to Hannu, we only end up bouncing Dawyn's rump, allowing him a new, brief angle on her wallsOur lips briefly passing over Jaaja's ring, our lipstick leaves a clear marker of our new personal best, before sliding back over with a little pop, wiping away the previous marker and leaving only saliva to make his next thrust easier, hot air leaving our nostrils to wash over the underside of his rod and balls. Our tongue stands ready to greet it's unexpected foe at every turn, yet it doesn't bar entry in the slightest: alternating from side to side on each thrust, exploring as many new angles as it can, stealing seed wherever it can.Eyes screwed shut, our tailhole clenches and clit peeks out as the image of Hannu filling our marefriend completely greets us, relishing the thought of our teats being stained in hot buck seed and fem cum as they make a clutch of cute little Dragony fawns.(We feel something in our core?)>>39956269Did I? Felt I was noting it, and Luscinia discovering how, unique an experience it is.
>>39956203Dawyn barring her teeth on our neck as if she was biting down on a pillow nearly puts us over the edge, exchanging some juices into her, but not as much as her flower practically raining hot juices into ours, pooling and overflowing down from our nethers.'She's close I can't Encourage her right now, but I must do something...'An idea pops in our head, focusing our mana to our tongue and reel our head back, pulling him closer via his cock. We bob our head closer to have his cock down our throat. We then tilt our head down on Dawyn to have her bite harder and clamp his cock in our throat. We look up to Jaaja and nod for him to thrust into our mouth.(Originally, I thought about lifting him (using a hoof lifting him between his legs) on the couch so his sack grazes Dawyn's head, but that would make us lose balance regardless of what approach I took. (And his ass would be in front of Hannu))
>>39956329>>39956332The previous rhythm of Hannu rolling Dawyn across your sensitive teats and Jaaja's gentle probing had lulled you into a collected calm, humming softly as pleasureful tingles travel up from your teats and to your loins. Everything is thrown off when Dawyn's bares her teeth on your neck like she was biting down on a pillow and nearly putting you over the edge, exchanging some juices with her, but she produces a lot more juices than you. Your eyes roll back before closing as you moan in earnest around the piece of Hippogriff meat in your mouth, pressing your throat up to Dawyn's lips, your thighs trying and failing to press together for some more stimulation. You roll your hips in an attempt to bring your marehood closer to Hannu which only ends up bouncing Dawyn's rump, giving him a new, but brief angle into her.'She's close! I can't encourage her right now, but I must do something...'An idea pops into your head, focusing your mana to your tongue and reeling your head back, pulling him closer to you via his cock and getting him slightly deeper. You then look up at Jaaja and nod to him, giving him permission to keep going.He pulls out and thrusts once more, but this time his medial ring slips past your lips and your mouth is stretched a bit as your muzzle is greeted by his bulge, wiping away the previous lipstick marker for a new one as he pulls back from there and repeats, hot air leaving your nostrils to wash over the underside of his rod and balls. As he keeps going you screw your eyes shut, your tailhole clenching and clit peeking out as the image of Hannu filling your marefriend completely greets you, absolutely relishing the thought of your teats being stained in hot buck seed and Dragon Mare cum as they make a clutch of cute little Dragon Pony fawns. The mere thought of this causing something to build in your core."Mmph-! Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm~!"Cont.
>>39956530A few more thrusts go by when you feel Dawyn tense and her grip on your neck tighten slightly, her body shaking shortly after as she's thrown into a powerful orgasm. Hannu gives her one last thrust before hilting himself as deep as he could go, a warm liquid dripping down onto your thighs about ten seconds later as a sign of Hannu filling her up with fawns.The two of them stay like this for thirty seconds, completely still besides the occasional shake or twitch. The first one to come down from it is Dawyn, her body going limp as she slides off of you and Hannu quietly flopping down onto the floor next to you. This just reveals Hannu standing over you with his cock covered in a mix of semen from himself and Dawyn. Panting for a minute, he looks over at Jaaja who was still ramming his cock into your throat."T-That, hah, heat potion you mentioned earlier. Is it still around?"Jaaja just lifts a claw up and points at the purple potion sitting on the table, the one that Jaaja had drank. Hannu grabs the potion and trots back to you."Would you like some fawns as well," He asks; lifting the potion up a bit, "I don't think it's very fair that the Dragon gets it all."What do you do?
>>39956533Giving Dawyn a cursory glance and caress to ensure she's okay, and very much enjoying the state she's in, we do our best to give Hannu a nod, though we can hardly move our head with how Jaaja continues to jackhammer our throat. Armed with the knowledge that Jaaja put himself into heat because of us, a few things about his behavior (and scent) stand out a little more, and being so close to a mare in heat too... We decide that taking our mouth off of Jaaja any more than necessary would be cruel at this point, not to mention the curiosity of how much we can take. (Encouraging Jaaja to use his claws a little?)Instead, we do our best to silently convey our interest to Hannu, looking at him with a lusty smile, hindlegs spread wide as we stroke our belly, our other hoof continuing lower to fondle a teat, taking a little time to catch and enjoy both their attention, now that Dawyn isn't using our foal feeders as a seat and they both have a good view.Realizing a potential problem before it arises, we grip our narrow flanks and pull them apart slightly, showing off our pucker, pointing at the potion, and then our tailhole.Alternative thoughts: we flip things over, sucking off Jaaja while smothering him in teat heaven, allowing Hannu to mount and breed us in the conventional style, and still rocking things despite barely being able to touch the ground with his hindlegs.Also, use Jaaja's dick as a means of feeding the potion to us.
>>39956533Coming down from our daze, or took us a moment to register what they were saying.'Wait, Jaaja's in heat? And Hannu wants me to have fawns with him?'Our face blushes red, a telling sign of what we want.'Wait, there's something more pressing I need to tell them, but how do I tell them with a mouth full of penis?'We use Suggest on Hannu.'Dawyn's heat curse is still active. She'll have her second wind soon!'
>>39956673I think we need to be actually able to speak to cast the suggest spell. We're unable to communicate right now and I think that's hot.
>>39956673Seconding!Took a second to understand, but even if we're not able to communicate, the warning failing to get through would be just as entertaining as it reaching Hannu.
>>39956533We give a hard look at the potion then at Hannu our needy clit winking from our soaked lips, as we try to say something the response is instead ramrodded back down our throat by the worked up hippogriff occupying it. A tiny speck of doubt festers in the back of our mind.'He's... Going to put me into heat, make me bare his foals right after Dawyn.'That itching worry is washed away by the lust and alcohol just as quickly as it popped up, our tail flagging uselessly.'Do it, give me the same treatment it's only fair.' >>39956630Seconding.Hmm... Love it, But I think I like staying how we are better than rolling over. Being trapped beneath our already bred marefriend unable to say a word to the contrary or in support of our own pending turn other than some body language that may or may not be interpreted correctly.
>>39956530>>39956533Damn this is hot.Wish I'd been here earlier, I would have suggested Luscinia using her long legs to leg lock around Hannu's hips to guarantee him knocking up Dawyn even more.
>>39956630>>39956673>>39956708>>39956724>>39956781>>39956821Coming down from your daze, you give Dawyn a cursory glance and caress to make sure she was fine, getting a twitch from her telling you that she was absolutely fine.'Wait, Jaaja's in heat? And Hannu wants me to have fawns with him?'Your face blushes red, a very telling sign of what you want though Hannu continues to wait for some actual confirmation. You give Hannu a hard look while your needy clit winks from your soaked lips, trying to say something in response but it's drown out by the ramrod and the worked up Hipporgriff controlling it. For a brief moment a tiny speck of doubt festers in the back of your mind.'He's... going to put me in heat, make me bare his foals right after Dawyn.'The itching worry is washed away by a combination of lust and alcohol just as quickly as it popped up, your tail flagging uselessly.'Do it, give me the same treatment, it's only fair!'You go to speak again, but armed with the knowledge that Jaaja placed himself into heat because of you, a few things about his behavior standing out a bit, and being so close to a mare in heat as well... Taking your mouth off of him would be cruel at this point, not to mention the curiosity you were starting to feel on how much you could actually take.You look back at Hannu, giving him your best lusty smile through the cock in your throat, hind legs spread wide as you stroke your belly, your other hoof fondling a teat."I'll take that as a yes," Hannu grins, "Though your mouth seems a bit occupied."With this problem pointed out to you, you grip your narrow flanks and pull them apart slightly, showing off your pucker as you point at the potion and then your tailhole. He looks between the two for a second until it clicks and he trots over, grabbing your flanks with one hoof and pushing them upward until your tailhole was angled up slightly. He then shifts the bottle around so the neck was facing your tailhole and shoves it forward.Your entire body goes stiff and your hair stands on end as the cold glass is shoved into your unexplored depths, the cool liquid pouring down into a place that it wasn't meant to, but still reach where it would have an effect. You didn't need to wait long as fifteen seconds later a fire ignites in your loins, thrusting your hips up as your clit winks wildly accompanied by a small spray of your juices. Your hind legs wiggle in the air trying to lock them around Hannu as he takes the potion bottle out and lowers your flanks down a bit, moving forward so that his tip pokes against your winking hole."Shouldn't make you wait then~."He then thrusts forward. With your entrance already soaked and his cock heavily lubricated he has no issues sliding in, wasting no time in thrusting as deep as he could go and repeating.What do you do?
>>39956914Little moans denoting our need as the artificial heat flares into life flow almost freely from our muzzle, we make no attempt to hide them still they are muffled but the shaft we are ameturely tending to, or in all truth that our throat is being used to pleasure. Feeling his tip rest against our entrance is like torture sending painful bolts of electricity through us making our body shake, but we can't get enough we want more, we NEED more we wiggle and try to push down on him but all we do is grind lightly on his tip until he decides to push into us finally.Our light moans are swiftly replaced by whorish squeals of ecstasy that even Jaaja's member has no chance at fully silencing.Our heat grows ever worse as our back door absorbs the potion more efficiently than it was ever intended to be.'He'sdoing it,i'd probably get inseminated just from the mess left on his cock from Dawyn but for the love of Morena don't stop.'We wiggle and squirm under knocked up knocked out marefriend bouncing her hips a little on our teats but we're left mostly helpless to the boys whims and loving every second of it.Is Luscina going to wake up before she gets to cum again? Everyone else in the dream does but not her, being left horny unsatisfied and frustrated for the day and having made a mess of her bedroll?
>>39956914We writhe and moan from the assault, the blissful familiarity increasing tenfold, his tapered cock scraping our walls and poking our hot cervix.We cusp our hooves around his face and push him down for a kiss, only to stop once his antlers ram into Jaaja and remember he's still using our mouth as a vagina.This moment gives us a small amount of clarity as we reach down to Dawyn, using our Earth Pony Strength to pull her up and on top of us and spinning her around in a 69 position. We spread her hind legs to have her press her nethers into our throat bulge, taking in the smell and feel of warm batter dripping onto us. We then position her head between our teets and press her muzzle to our and Hannu's genitals.Satisfied with her position, we grab her breasts and give them a squeeze, coxing her to wake up, then giving her flanks a hard *Smack*.(Planning on her to wake up, grind her pussy into Jaaja's cock through our neck, and have her lick both our clit and Hannu's cock performing a bystander's blowjob. Playing with Dawyn's holes with our hooves also crossed my mind.)
>>39957048Seconding.I was thinking if she woke up she'd use her tail to try pull Hannu back into herself, every time she has sex the heat curse basically resets.This is undeniable hot. Although I like the idea of Luscinia being trapped helplessly under her and that's kind of spoiled if Luscinia can lift her. (Maybe even trying to lift her but in her lust drunk state she grips onto Luscinia too tightly to be moved?)That all said I'm very interested in seeing this, Luscinia getting a glimpse of that nice thick tail and what's under it will be fun, since she hasn't seen the real thing it could be very different from reality.A horizontal slit in her scales oozing with Hannu's mess.
>>39956914With the potion coursing through us, everything is a bit muddled, yet a few things are perfectly clear: much of our attention on our yearning holes, including our throat, but also those around us.The warm 'blanket' on our body that is Dawyn, cuddling and murmuring in bliss, and painting a picture of our fate.The randy Hippogriff working on some much needed relief, Jaaja, whom we can sympathize with, especially with the fire in our belly, and our own heat-keyed senses growing more accustomed and attuned his own heat.And Hannu, giving us an excellent rendition of our first time together with him, making us a mare, no, his mare.The only goal in our head is to take as much seed from them as they can spare, to get relief from that wonderful, acursed potion.Of course this goal is both easy and difficult to accomplish; time will ensure the duo spitroasting us will give us our dues, but we're impatient, so we do what little we can to help them along. Our legs find their way to Hannu's hips, mostly just following the motion as he repeatedly reduces them to quivering jelly, but they at least provide a little more force and encouragement.As for Jaaja, we place a hoof on one of his thighs, stroking the inside and catching the occasional brief feel of his sack. Using it as a metronome for his thrusts, we take a note from Dawyn and very carefully press our teeth to his shaft, lifting them in time to just graze his medial ring and the bumps on his crown.Noting a little cloudy liquid flowing back along the line running under Jaaja shaft, and forming a droplet on his knot, our brows furrow at the wasted pre. Not wanting to let any more escape our maw, we suck in, almost oblivious of how this might feel to Jaaja, especially with the already tight seal of our lips.Without much thought, we allow a little healing magic to massage our ravaged throat, the warm, soothing sensation evidently spilling over into the cock invading it. Once we realize that fact, we envelope our passage, and Hannu, in that same magic with even less of a thought, the closest thing to a worry in our head being the passive wonder of what life-giving magic might do, so close to our fertile womb.>>39958430Interesting thought with the contrasting anatomy for Dawyn. That could be fun.
DnD today.>>39956971>>39957048>>39958430>>39958587You writhe and moan denoting your need as the artificial heat flares to life within you, making no attempt to hide your moans even if they are muffled a bit. His tapered cock scraping your walls and poking your hot cervix which sends painful bolts of electricity through you to make your body shake, but you couldn't get enough you wanted more, you NEEDED more.A goal quickly forms to take as much seed from them as they could give you, to get relief from the both wonderful and accursed potion. Of course, this goal is both easy and hard to accomplish; time will ensure the duo spitroasting you will give you your dues in time, but you were very much impatient, so you decide to try and help things along. Still, it was hard to think through the pleasure you were experiencing, your so far light moans being replaced by whorish squeals of ecstasy that even Jaaja's member had no chance in silencing. Your heat growing in intensity as your backdoor absorbs the potion more efficiently than it was ever intended to be.'He's doing it! I'd probably get inseminated just from the mess on his cock from Dawyn, but for the love of Morena don't stop!'Your hind legs find their way to Hannu's hips, wrapping around them to ensure he remains close and following his motions as he repeatedly reduces them to something closer to quivering jelly. Your forehooves aren't idle as you cup them around his face and pull him down for a kiss, but stop when his antlers poke into Jaaja and you remember that he was still using it like a vagina. Hannu just gives you a small smile and leans back.This does give you a small bit of clarity as you look over at Dawyn who was laying next to you, awake but not really moving as she recovers from her experience. You reach out to her and use your Earth Pony strength to pull her on top of you and spin her around in a 69 position, only getting a small moan from her as this forced movement wakes her up a bit. It also gives you a wonderful view of her ravaged entrance, the horizontal slit in her scales just below her tail oozing with the mess that Hannu left her that drips down onto your chin. You move your attention a bit to Jaaja, placing a hoof on one of his thighs to get the occasional brief feel for his sack. Using it like a metronome for his thrusts, you take a note from the Dragon Mare above you and very carefully press your teeth to his shaft, lifting them in time to just graze his medial ring and bumps. You also note a cloudy liquid that starts to flow back along the line running underneath Jaaja's shaft, forming a small droplet on his knot. Not wanting to let any of his pre escape you try to suck it in, completely oblivious to how it feels to jaaja as he stops and his cock twitches around you before resuming.Cont.
>>39958822Realizing that Dawyn still wasn't moving you go back to encourage her. You spread her hind legs out and press her soaked nethers into your throat bulge, being met by the smell and warm batter mess that was left. Jostling her a bit you get her head between your teats and press her muzzle to your and Hannu's genitals. Satisfied with her position, you grab her breasts and squeeze them."Mmm... Ngh~!"This finally gets her brain back in gear. She wastes little time as you feel her tongue lap at your clit and then move up to lick Hannu's shaft, repeating the process as Hannu thrusts in and out and occasionally giving your clit a few flicks with her tongue.What do you do?
>>39958832Good luck with D&D, Pluto!We practically melt under the trio's actions, whatever experience and endurance we could claim to have having been worn down by the teasing we received while Dawyn was being knocked up, our moans before having lost any hidden meaning as they're reduced to long ecstatic groans, our throat rumbling gently around around the cock lodged in it, and against Dawyn's sensitive scaly slit, letting her feel the passion and lust behind each thrust.Throughout our body, we relax muscles we didn't even know we had... this includes our tunnel and our neck, offering little resistance against penetration, yet remaining snug in their embrace, welcoming every inch again and again.Conversely, our legs do gain some strength, mostly our thighs as they press on either side of our teats, locking Dawyn's head at our groin as we wink away, the lazy bum affixed to our marehood having taken a liking to bifurcated tongue. No longer willing to chance our teeth on his rod, we opt to suckle harder, the feeling of Hannu and Dawyn's mess dribbling out of that vent and down our neck only make our belly hunger more, driving our tongue to probe his rod for a weakness, even slipping past our lips to toy with his knot, forever past our (lips/limit?)We don't know when, but at some point we've latched onto the others as we're able, one hoof getting a feel for Jaaja's sleek rump, the other gripping Dawyn's horns for dear life as she takes advantage of Hannu plowing our mound like fertile soil, our hind hooves wiggle about, only just being able to 'grab' onto Hannu's fluffy tail, the only part of him we can 'hold' in our current position, and even still, they shake like a leaf with anticipation.Fuck, Sorry that this is so late, was literally typing this as I made dinner post work, and couldn't get away from stuff at any point before hand.
>>39958832We receive a small sense of relief from the extra attention and pleasure, only for that relief to turn back into desire as our breath labors, inhaling more of Jaaja's and Dawyn's heat smell in addition to our own.We take a hoof to Dawyn's head, pushing her down to press her muzzle into our folds as we stare into Dawyn's bouncing behind when something catches our eye: She still has her panties on.We change tactics, grabbing the strap of her panties, lifting them so the fabric digs itself into her own folds. This was a pleasant mistake as her hot juices spray on us and her hot smell increases. The need to taste what we're smelling swims through our head, making us frustrated being restricted with the living pecker gag thrusting down our throat. New mission: make Jaaja cum so we can taste our mare!'... I'm surprised he lasted this long.'We bring our attention back to Dawyn's juicy behind, lifting her tail to push the tip of our hoof into her folds, tenderly rubbing and digging into it to collect her juices on the frog of our hoof to make sure it doesn't spill. With enough on our hoof, it was tempting to dribble some of it on our lips... So we do, dribbling a drop around our lips, getting pushed into our awaiting mouth via cock. The taste was satisfying and enough to strengthen our resolve as we lift our juice filled hoof like a bowl up to Jaaja's beak.'Come on, Jaaja, this heat must be driving you crazy. Drink from my hoof and thrust faster! Cum in my throat!'
That was fun, got something I didn't expect.>>39959270>>39959495You receive a small sense of relief from the extra attention and pleasure, only for it to not last for long as it turns back to desire as your breath labors. Under all of this you pretty much melt, whatever experience and endurance you could claim to have quickly getting worn down by the teasing you received while Dawyn was being knocked up, your moans having lost any hidden meaning as they're reduced to long ecstatic groans, your throat rumbling gently around the cock lodged in it, and against Dawyn's sensitive slit.You take a hoof to Dawyn's head, pushing her down to press her muzzle into your folds as you stare into Dawyn's bouncing behind when something catches your eye: her panties were still very much on.You change tactics completely, grabbing her panties by the strap and lifting them so the fabric digs into her own folds. This turns out to be a very pleasant mistake as she moans loudly and her hot juices spray onto you. The smell completely overwhelms you tempting you to taste it, but being restricted to a living pecker gag you couldn't do anything. 'New mission: make Jaaja cum so I can taste my mare! I'm surprised he's lasted this long.'You bring your attention back to Dawyn and her juicy behind, squeezing your thighs to use your teats to lock Dawyn's head to your groin as you wink away, the lazy bum affixed to your marehood having very much taken a liking to her bifurcated tongue. You also lift her tail up to push the tip of your hoof into her folds, tenderly rubbing and digging into her sensitive, twitching flesh as she continues to moan on you, collecting her juices up on the frog of your hoof so that it doesn't spill. With enough of it on your hoof it was now very tempting to dribble it on your lips... Which you do, dribbling a drop around your lips, getting pushed into your awaiting mouth via Jaaja's cock. The taste immediately satisfies and strengthens your resolve.'Come on, Jaaja, this heat must be driving you crazy. Drink from my hoof and thrust faster! Cum in my throat!'As if he could hear your thoughts he starts to thrust much faster, his cock bouncing in your mouth and throat and his bulge flexing. At this happens the feeling in your core quickly starts to rocket itself to the edge from a combination of Dawyn's tongue and Hannu increasing the frequency of his thrusts as well leaving you wondering who was going to break first: yourself or the other two.Cont.
>>39959871Jaaja was first. He gives you a few more thrusts before pulling back almost all the way. Your eyes widen as you realize what he was about to do, but he was beyond reason at this point as he thrusts forward with all his might, all you could do being gripping Dawyn's horns for dear life. His bulge quickly bumps up against your lips and then forces itself past them, forcing your jaw open further as his bulge locks himself in. After a few seconds you feel him fill your throat with the first of what was many ropes. Behind you, Hannu gives his last few thrusts as well before hilting himself as deep as he could go, the head of his cock splitting your cervix wide enough for him to directly fill your womb with his fawn batter. This brings you over the edge as well.What do you do?
>>39959875Squeeze our hind legs hard as we feel ourselves being seeded from both ends, swallowing around Jaaja trying not to drown. The aching of our jaw not seeming like a big deal in the face of overwhelming bliss, our tongue slides over the swelling knot locking Jaaja to our muzzle while he fills us with a meal and Hannu fills us with a fawn.'Make me a mother just like you did my marefriend It's... So much!'We can't even cry out as we reach out limit, Jaaja having stripped that ability away from us, our throat vibrates around him in the attempt but barely makes a sound as we coat Hannu's crotch with our love juices.Then... We wake up with a start. Finding ourselves with Dawyn's tail in out mouth.(I'd want to get other anon's thoughts on this part first though.)
Stopping for the night. I got a summary for tonight so here's that: Finally, the Ball!Before going into the whole thing there is a bit of out of session roleplay where Naltaal gets to see her adoptive mom/warlock patron Funtres, a Fey Dragon that raised her back in Ekalas. Naltaal had requested her guidance on the disease a while ago and here she is talking to her in a dream. She sadly doesn't though she does confirm that this hasn't originated from Ekalas. Funtres does urge her to 'look in magical places in Laloc to find someone worth speaking to' which is important for the session but not in the literal sense.The party wakes up in the morning and, despite the apparent ability of the party to make things a lot longer than they have to be, we are finally at the day of the ball though there is still a day for the party to do things. Akxire is the one to make breakfast for everyone, and a relevant quirk about the Druid is he doesn't bathe and at this point he had accumulated about two weeks worth of grime and he was the one cooking. This is relevant because the DM's world is a bit realistic so there are diseases and consequences for not bathing, though Akxire doesn't see any yet. San is the only one that really notices how dirty he is and wisely decides to not eat what he's offering. After that the party splits off to do some stuff: Naltaal heads off to find Warren as he has been gone since yesterday and Galin tags along. Akxire, San, and Geard head into the woods to find the last ingredients for Clover and get some wood so Geard can make a mask for the ball.Naltaal and Galin go first and they find Warren near the barracks who looks better than yesterday and is now wearing soldier garbs. The two get his attention and it turns out that when your noble parents decide to disown you that all the titles and treatment you received from the Wardens goes away. He's still with them though and they were having him do guard things since yesterday. He's off-duty now and offers to take Naltaal around Laloc before taking some playful jabs at Galin and his relationship with Princess Oriana. After that he suggests to Galin to head to the barracks and ask for 'The Showman' there to show Galin how to dance for Oriana. Galin splits off to do that and Naltaal heads off with Warren.Cont.
>>39959875"MMMM MMMM MMMMMM~~~"We moan and spasm as we're filled from both ends with hot spunk. We spray hard straight into Dawyn's mouth. The sensation of our womb locking in Hannu's seeds, and our chest and stomach being filled with Jaaja's, and our juices being lapped up and swallowed by Dawyn is pure ecstasy. We invite every ounce of rope the boys pour into us, taking the effort to gulp in, suck, and swallow every drop Jaaja feeds us. Once his cock is drained and flaccid, we take action to fulfill what we wanted from Dawyn. We lift our head and nuzzle into her nethers then graze our lips around her flower kissing, licking and suckling it without bothering to take the cock out of our mouth. We then remember her panties, we use our soaked hoof to dig them deeper into her folds which also causes them to graze against her pucker.'I need to taste you, Dawyn. Cum for me!'>>39959976I do like the ending, but I was hoping to fulfill what we set our mind to do.
>>39960077Meanwhile the other three are in the woods where San and Akxire try to explain magic to Geard while they try to find the plants. They do find them after a very minor attack from an angry weasel. After that they find a tree that Geard takes some branches from to use for his mask. While that happens Akxire hears the trees whispering because he's a Half-Dryad, but each time he tries to address the whispering trees they go silent. That mysteriously ominous event isn't explained as the three leave as they get their reward from Clover and head back to the house. While this happens Galin arrives at the barracks and meets The Showman who turns out to be Prince Alaric, the guy he had a mock fight with a few sessions ago. It is explained how he got the moniker which is that Wardens in Althea are required to go to the gatherings that the nobility throw and need to learn all the etiquette that it requires, and Alaric was one of the people that taught this to the new Wardens. Alaric agrees to teach Galin a dance and that whole thing takes six hours to make sure that Galin gets the dance in his head.Cont again.
>>39960119And then it's back to Naltaal. She has been exploring the city with Warren for a while now and he decides to take her to a small, but well known shop that sells various things that aren't found in Laloc. The two head in and the owner turns out to be an old male Dragonborn. As soon as Naltaal sees him she gets a good history and arcana roll that is related to some magic she feels in that moment as she realizes that she recognizes the old Dragonborn and immediately becomes nervous for a good reason. Naltaal and Warren talk with the Dragonborn a bit and Naltaal eventually asks for a ring to buy. He finds some, goes to give it to her, and as soon as their hands get close enough there is a physical spark between the two. There is confusion from everyone and it's compounded when the Dragonborn calls Naltaal 'Nymeria' and tearfully hugs Naltaal which Naltaal returns with an equal amount of tears. This old Dragonborn is Naltaal's father named Kimbal Arvas(Not too sure as I'm bad with names, but I'm sure it's close to this) who Naltaal hasn't seen since she was two because she was displaced to Ekalas. Nymeria is apparently Naltaal's actual name.After the tearful reunion the two talk a bit and Naltaal notices that Kimbal is the only one running the store. Naltaal's mother left the world a few years ago having never given up on trying to find Naltaal and dying of a broken heart. Naltaal does have a younger brother, but he went to Craydorn for business and has been missing for SIX FUCKING MONTHS since he went over there. Kimbal would search for him, but as he's the only one running the shop the family would lose everything. The ball is very close at this point, but Kimbal very much doesn't want to leave Naltaal after she just got there so he ends up coming home with her and Warren and he agrees to watch the house while the ball is happening.So, the ball finally happens... and it goes by in thirty minutes which I'm not really complaining about as not much happens. Geard did get to dance with a masked lady and at the end of the dance the lady tells him 'we're watching you' and suddenly disappears with a ring that Geard had.And that was the session, sorry that it's long but some things did happen. Some potential plot things did start at the ball, but this is long enough as is and I'm tired. I didn't really expect Naltaal to reunite with her family this soon, well I knew it was going to be soon but not this soon as I was planning to try and do Naltaal's backstory stuff after the ball. I'm happy with how it turned out though and I realized after it occurred that the 'look in magical places in Laloc to find someone worth speaking to' from Funtres was probably foreshadowing this and she used a bit of magic to help things along. Still, I am happy with how it went.Just need to figure out a way for Naltaal to explain to her dad where the fuck she's been for sixteen years.
>>39960113Seconding.Fair enough. I don't mind finishing up.
>>39959976>>39960113>>39960759"MMMM MMMM MMMMMMMM~~!"You moan and squeeze your hind legs hard as you feel yourself being seeded from both ends with hot spunk, swallowing around Jaaja trying not to drown. The aching of your jaw not seeming like a big deal in the face of overwhelming bliss. You spray hard into Dawyn's mouth as the sensation of your womb locking in Hannu's seed, and your chest and stomach being filled with Jaaja's, and your juices being lapped up and swallowed by Dawyn is pure ecstasy. You invite every ounce of rope the boys pour into you, taking the effort to gulp in, suck, and swallow every drop Jaaja feeds you.'Make me a mother just like you did my marefriend! It's... so much!'Your throat vibrates around him to encourage Jaaja to give you as much as he could while you coat Hannu's crotch with your love juices. After what feels like an eternity his cock is drained and flaccid enough for you to move, allowing you to take action to fulfill what you wanted from Dawyn. You lift your head and nuzzle her nethers making her whole body spasm from the sensation, grazing your lips around her flower to kiss, lick and suckle without bothering to take the cock out of your mouth. Remembering her panties, you use your soaked hoof to dig them deeper into her holds which also makes them graze against her pucker.'I need to taste you, Dawyn. Cum for me!'It doesn't take much."Gaah~! Hah~!"Already extremely sensitive from getting a rutting earlier she lets out a quit moan and you're shortly met by a spray of her own juices combined with the remains of Hannu's, her warm, spicy taste a great treat for your taste buds. Before you could get much more...You wake up with a start, taking a sharp inhalation out of instinct only to let out a gag as something hits the back of your throat.It turned out to be Dawyn's tail which had somehow found itself in your mouth with the tip covered in drool. The Dragon Mare that the tail belonged to was thankfully still asleep, her head resting on your chest unaware of what you were doing with her tail.Light was just starting to shine through the canvass of the tent signifying that it was early morning.What do you do?
>>39961463A large blush colors our face scarlet.'Was her tail Jaaja's...!'We didn't finish our thought as the memories of our dream danced in our head.'That was... Sweet Morena, that was... Wow!'We look down at our nightgown. Sure enough, it was wet down below. We then look at Dawyn's soul, sleeping peacefully. We smile at that.'It hasn't even been half a day, and I'm already deepthroating her tail and having wet dreams about her getting impregnated.'We use disguise to hide the wet spots on our gown and change our cutiemark.'It won't do anything about the smell, but I can at least look decent.'We finally take Dawyn's tail out of our mouth and wipe the drool off with the known dry spots of our gown and give her a kiss on the forehead.
>>39961463Letting the tail fall from our mouth, we study Dawyn's resting face and her soul for several moments as we ponder, holding her close and stroking her mane.'That was... a dream. If I've had one like that before, it has certainly been a while. Truth or Dare will be something I'll have to explore more, though it's unlikely to be nearly so, provocative. Shame that I can't use any of that as material for my journal, but dreams aren't a credible source for anatomy. Perhaps I could make some notes to remember for the future.'Turning our gaze to the tail that was in our mouth, we lick our lips to get another taste.'Her tail on its own doesn't seem too sensitive, but at least I can confirm phallic objects can enter my maw without too much trouble. My throat on the other hoof... I might have to show Hannu that when i next get the chance.'We peek around for Armas, to confirm whether he is okay, as well as if anyone else is up yet.>>39960128Sounds like a session with low drama, low combat, but lots of story and character progression. Those can be some of the best ones.
>>39961593>>39961638You let her tail fall from your mouth, spending a moment studying her peaceful and content resting face and her unbothered soul for several moments.'Was her tail Jaaja's...'You don't finish that thought as the memories of the dream dance around in your head. You lift a hoof up and pull her a bit close while stroking her mane.'That was... sweet Morena, that was... Wow! If I've had one like that before, it has certainly been a while. Truth or Dare will be something I'll have to explore more, though it's unlikely to be nearly so, provocative. Shame that I can't use any of that as material for my journal, but dreams aren't a credible source for anatomy. Perhaps I could make some notes to remember for the future.'You look down at your nightgown and find that it was indeed wet down below. You then go back to the tail that was in your mouth, the little tufts of hair on the tip completely matted down. You lick your lips to get another taste of it.'It hasn't even been half a day, and I'm already deepthroating her tail and having wet dreams about her getting impregnated. Her tail on it's own doesn't seem too sensitive, but at least I can confirm phallic objects can enter my maw without too much trouble. My throat on the other hoof... I might have to show Hannu that when I next get the chance.'You cast Disguise to hide the wet spots on your gown and change your cutie mark once again.'It won't do anything about the smell, but I can at least look decent.'You then wipe off her tail a bit on the dry spots of your gown that you were sure of, leaning down to give her a kiss on the forehead before looking around. You could see Armas' soul nearby who seemed fine. There was another soul nearby where the fire was last night, the soul looking to belong to Copper.As you keep cleaning Dawyn's tail she shifts a bit in her sleep, a clawed hoof coming up to rest on your chest along with her head.What do you do?
>>39961754We smile and get comfortable again. We lay there just enjoying the sounds of her breathing and the quiet moment of calm, allowing her to rest as we continue to stroke her mane.'You're just so cute.'[/spoiler] volunteered to work a half day today. I'll still try to sneak in a post or two. [/spoiler]
>>39961754Smiling down at the adorable sleeping mare, and not feeling any need to wake her just yet, we set our hooves to slowly explore her body in a more scientific sense than sexual: avoiding any areas we surmise to be erogenous zones and just inching along the various parts of her body to feel the different textures. Mostly being just one hoof staying with one of her horns, while the other feels her claws.>>39961811Good luck, and Seconding!
>>39961754Hmm...'This is all somewhat embarrassing, I hope this all didn't affect her own slumber.'A red hue takes a light hold of our cheeks.'... I don't think there is any hiding the scent, but it's nice to have her cuddled up like this. It's not so awful to be a pillow.'Try to reach into our bag to retrieve our journal without waking her, and start to draw a little sketch of her form while we have her as a mostly still muse while we wait for her to wake up on her own.
>>39961811>>39961816>>39961827"Hmm..."'This is all somewhat embarrassing, I hope this all didn't affect her own slumber.'A few seconds later a red hue takes hold of your cheeks.'...I don't think there is any hiding the scent, but it's nice to have her cuddled up like this. It's not so awful to be a pillow.'A smile forms at this as you get comfortable again, not feeling any need to wake her up yet or get up yourself. You set your hooves to slowly explore her body in a scientific way rather than sexual: avoiding any areas you surmise to be erogenous zones like her flanks or between her wings and just inching along the various parts of her body, notably in the area where her scales become fur. Your hooves eventually end up at her horns and claws, feeling the rough, bony texture of both.'You're just so cute.'Curiosity satisfied you get your journal out and start to draw a little sketch of her form while you had her as a still muse, putting a slight focus on her curved horns. You get the entirety of her body outlined and some details like the horn, claws, and tail done before you feel her shift a bit thirty minutes later."Mmm..."You peek over your journal at the little sound where you see her eyes open and start to look around.What do you do?
>>39961977"God's morning, Sweetie. Did you sleep well?"We lean in to give her a kiss."I started drawing you, I hope you don't mind. You we're just so cute. Still are."
>>39961977Setting out book down with a slight smile we turn our head to face her.Good morning. Did you sleep well? You seem to have made yourself quite comfortable not that I mind.
>>39962001>>39962005Setting your journal down with a slight smile you turn to face her."Good morning, Sweetie. Did you sleep well? You seem to have made yourself quite comfortable not that I mind.""I slept very well," She nods tiredly, "You make for a comfortable pillow."You lean down and give her a kiss on the head which she smiles at."I started drawing you, I hope you don't mind," You tell her, "You were just so cute. Still are.""Hope I've been making a good model," She chuckles; sitting up a bit, "Could I see it, if you're willing to share?"What do you do?
>>39962125Reaching over we pick up the book again from where we placed it.You may, I don't have any true training in drawing so to pre warn you it is mostly having a steady hoof and moderate practice that lends it to being anything remotely recognizable. My drawings tend to be very basic because of this.We flip the book to her page and pass it to her.Oh. And don't look at the other pages.
>>39962125"I told you I was comfortable~"We say, heading our journal and flipping to the page."I only have the line work done, but it should be enough for me to finish the drawing."
>>39962191>>39962238"I told you I was comfortable~."You say while grabbing your journal again."You may, I don't have any true training in drawing so to pre warn you it is mostly having a steady hoof and moderate practice that lends it to being anything remotely recognizable. My drawings tend to be very basic because of this.You flip the book open to her page and hoof it to her."Oh, and don't look at the other pages.""I wonder what's so important to say that." She jokes a bit.She spends several seconds looking at your drawing, her smile never leaving her face and in fact growing slightly as she looks back at you."You sure you don't have any training in drawing? Because this is very good," She compliments you; looking back at the drawing, "I love the details you have for my horns on here."What do you do?
>>39962300The temptation to nibble on our mane a little tickles the back of our mind. A touch quieter than before we respond.... They are rather striking features, I wanted to record them in the best detail I could. Given the time I'd do the same for your claws wings and tail, along with a detailed enlarged sketch of one of your scales.Biting our lower lip for a moment before we continue.The reason I bar you from reading what else lies in the book is because it is rather... Brazenly obscene at parts.
>>39962347There is a temptation to nibble on your mane that tickles the back of your mind. You ignore that before responding a touch quieter."...They are rather striking features, I wanted to record them in the best detail I could," You explain, "Given the time I'd do the same for your claws, wings, and tail, along with a detailed enlarged sketch of one of your scales."You bite your lower lip before continuing."The reason I bar you from reading what else lies in the book is because it is rather... Brazenly obscene at parts.""...Ah," She breathes; blushing a little, "Still, I would keep going with this, keep improving on it. It's too good to give up, though it sounds like you won't."She looks back up at you from the drawing."If you want I can try to recreate the pose and you can keep going. Or we can get ready for the day and head out."What do you do?
>>39962442"Depends on how hungry you are: I have most of the general features down, but this will still take some time. On the other hoof, I would relish the opportunity to continue sketching you."
>>39962442We think for a moment using our soul sight to glance towards where we know Smoke and Tanssija's tent to be. It- I believe we may have the time to get a bit more down on paper right now. If you'd like to continue we may, besides if we help each other get ready for the day it should save time we can use to finish this, shouldn't it?Maybe I can draw a second at some point for you to have.We get our things ready to continue.
>>39962442I... prefer if we can recreate the pose. Your pose was rather captivating if I can admit that. I hope you don't mind that if I spend time capturing that once again. You were rather cute in that pose admittedly.Would be very cute if we can spend time cuddling her while we look at the drawing that we drew of her.
>>39962442"I should have enough line work, but I think it'll look better if your eyes were open and smiling as if you just woke up from a pleasant dream, and I'm the first thing you see."
>>39962478>>39962479>>39962495>>39962544You think about this for a moment, glancing over at where you know Smoke and Tanssija's tent to be where you find their souls, neither of them moving so they were still asleep."It- I believe we may have the time to get a bit more down on paper right now, but it depends on how hungry you are: I have most of the general features down, but this will take some time. If you'd like to continue we may, besides if we help each other get ready for the day it should save time.""I'm not too hungry yet, so if you aren't I would be happy to keep going.""I would prefer if you could recreate the pose then. Your pose was rather captivating if I can admit that and I think it'll look better if your eyes were open and smiling as if you just woke up from a pleasant dream, and I'm the first thing you see."She nods, placing her hoof back on your chest and laying her head down near it with a slight blush, her other hoof doing it's best to slip underneath you and cuddle you."Ready when you are."You pick up your drawing tools again and get ready to continue. Before you do that though you spend some time adjusting her a bit to try and get the pose as close as you could. It doesn't take long to do this and you don't get it as exact as she was, but it was good enough and you start to draw again."...Maybe one of these coming days I can repay the favor and try to draw you," She suggests; still blushing, "I'm not the best drawer, but I would give it my best."What do you do?
>>39962623"I didn't know you were much of a drawer. I would be honored if I were to see to see your first drawings together." Once we are done with our drawings, cuddle her and inspect our drawings together followed by us occasionally kissing her cheek while we inspect them."Happy to finally be in a relationship? I can tell you're happy to finally be one.~ Although, are you sure to be in one with a mare already in one currently? I hope you don't mind... I want to make you happy after all..."Perhaps we can introduce her to Hannu like we did in our dream. Maybe there's a way for this to all work out.
>>39962623Starting with the claw on our chest we start to bring it to life adding more detail and slightly adjusting a couple lines to get a better representation of them.I would greatly appreciate it no matter your skill level, perhaps I can help you with some tips I learned the hard way.We pause and readjust our grip on our drawing implement and finish up the claw by adding some finer detail to it. Taking several glances back at her claw to keep it fresh in our mind....Is there any particular pose you'd like to capture my likeness in?Moving on to her wings we start filling them out giving lighter strokes to the membrane between the supports to highlight it's differing color and thickness while touching up those supports themselves.Bit by bit we pass over the details adding down as much as we can without overcrowding the picture.
Stopping for the night.Have a good night or day!>>39961638Yeah, it was a great time and it's something I had fun with.I'm excited to see what happens with Naltaal's brother who was mentioned to be missing. The DM had us make NPCs that are important to the PCs or their backstory and this is the one I made for Naltaal. He's a Warlock who's very money and business oriented and has some very loose morals; he's the guy that would do anything as long as he gets paid in the end unless it involves his own family in some way. Thought it would be a fun personality for Naltaal to interact with, something like an opposite to her, so I'm very interested in where the DM decides to take him. Kinda hoping for mob related shit, but we'll see.
>>39962698Night, Pluto!Looking forward to reading what happens when those two meet up then.
>>39962623We blush a little, but smile all the same."I'm not sure if I could project the same beauty as you do, but I would be delighted. I'm not a professional myself, but a good tip is to not overthink what you're drawing. Worrying too much about every little line would come off as choppy; too much detail in one spot, not enough on another, all lines are a part of one piece."We continue to draw, starting with her beautiful slitted eyes, now awake and lidded from her 'awakening', taking some time to shade them glossy as if the light was reflecting off of them. We then work on her smile, thin and droopy, but show contentment for the very mare drawing her lovely essence.We continue to draw the rest of her, highlighting her lovely curves and gorgeous tail."... Do you think you'll be comfortable if I drew you naked sometime?"(Debated on that last line.)>>39962658I'm not sure if saying we're still in a relationship is apt, but I will also admit I don't know if another way to put it. Also, I get the feeling that saying this is as of we're giving this relationship second thoughts. I might be over thinking it though.I think we intend to tell Hannu about our relationship as soon as possible. It's only fair after all, and we would expect Hannu to do the same for us. If not, Tanssija would definitely make us tell him. I'm more worried about Tanssija's reaction over Hannu's.
>>39962658>>39962662>>39963635You blush a bit, but smile all the same at her."I'm not sure if I could project the same beauty as you do, but I would be delighted. I would greatly appreciate it no matter your skill level, perhaps I can help you with some tips I learned the hard way.""Like?""A good tip is to not overthink what you're drawing. Worrying too much about every little line would come off as choppy; too much detail in one spot, not enough in another, all lines are a part of one piece."You start with the claw on your chest, bringing it life by adding a bit more detail and slightly adjusting a couple lines to get a better representation of them, eventually finishing it up by adding some finer details to it. You then move on to her beautiful slitted eyes, now awake and lidded from her 'awakening', taking some time to shade them glossy as if the light was reflecting off of them. You then work on her smile, thin and droopy, but it shows contentment for the very mare drawing her lovely essence. You then start to draw the rest of her, highlighting her lovely curves and gorgeous tail."...Is there any particular pose you'd like to capture my likeness in?""Not at the moment," She shakes her head, "I'll probably need to think about it for a few hours."You nod as you start on her wings, filling them out with some lighter strokes to the membrane between the supports to highlight it's differing colors and thickness. For the next while the two of you are quiet, letting you complete the drawing in peace. Once it was done you set the drawing down and bring her into a cuddle, bringing the drawing over so that the two of you could inspect it together."Happy to finally be in a relationship," You ask, "I can tell you're happy to finally be in one~. Although, are you sure to be in one with a mare already in one currently? I hope you don't mind... I want to make you happy after all...""It's fine, Silver," She smiles at you, "And I really love the drawing, it looks fantastic."She leans up and gives you a kiss on the cheek.What do you do?
>>39964363Blushing, we give her a kiss back, kissing the edge of her lips.'I will have to make a copy, so we can both have one.'"... Shall we join the others? We can't keep them waiting forever, as I'm not sufe we have the food for that."
>>39964363"I'm glad.""For both liking the drawing and being happy with our relationship."We return her kiss."We should tell him when we can. It's something I would want to know if the role was reverse. Even then, Tanssija would probably force our hoof. She can be quite protective of her little brother."
>>39964480>>39964499Blushing, you give her a kiss back, kissing the edge of her lips and watching as her tail swishes rapidly behind her as a result.'I will have to make a copy, so we can both have one.'"I'm glad to hear that. Both liking the drawing and being happy with our relationship," You tell her, "We should tell him when we can. It's something I would want to know if the role was reversed. Even then, Tanssija would probably force our hoof. She can be quite protective of her little brother.""Something I would want in a sibling," She says, "I'll try to remember as well, so we don't forget.""...Shall we join the others? We can't keep them waiting forever, as I'm not sure we have the food for that."She nods and the two of you almost reluctantly get up and start to get ready, which is made easier by the two of you helping each other to get ready. After a few minutes you zip the tent open and the two of you step outside. There is a slight chill in the air, but the light from the morning sun was helping to warm it up. The only one currently outside in your little camp was Copper who had a pot going over a crackling fire."Morning." He greets the two of you.What do you do?
>>39964620"Good Morning, Copper." We say, trotting up to the fire and sitting down next to Dawyn, reaching out for her claw-hoof simply holding it."What do you have cooking there? ... It isn't Armas, is it?"
>>39964620'We probably should have gotten dressed before coming out of the tent, it's still early the chill certainly is one way to wake up fully.'Good morning Cooper, >>39963635We have spoken in front of her about the particulars of the relationship.
>>39964701>>39964756'We probably should have gotten dressed before coming out of the tent, it's still early but the chill certainly is one way to wake up fully.'"Good morning, Copper," You greet him back; trotting up to the fire and sitting down next to Dawyn, reaching out to hold her claw-hoof which she accepts, "What do you have cooking there... It isn't Armas, is it?""What? No, he's up there," He says; pointing up at Armas who was looking down at the three of you from a branch, "Just thought some soup would be nice on a chilly morning like this."He looks up slightly at the two of you, his eyes staring at your holding hooves. A small smile forms on his face as he looks down."Seems the two of you have gotten close."What do you do?
>>39964788Nothing slips past you. We had a conversation and while we may not be bound together for long neither of us wanted to waste the time by using it any less than to the fullest extent. In addition Dawyn is exceedingly cute and it seems I have a rather critical weakness for that.Smile a little looking over to her, to assure her that yes we did intentionally praise her on purpose for the purpose of turning her all blushy and stuttery again.
>>39964788"Just last night, in fact." We say, giving her a nuzzle."This adorable cutie gave me every reason to ask her out. I couldn't resist her charm and enthusiasm."(I spent too long trying to figure out a response. I have to post what I have.)
>>39939985>>39939993>>39939995Fuck I missed this. Sorry I should have said something sooner.Damn this is fantastic, the twist of it being that little luck goddess in disguise was perfect. Her personality was really entertaining.Enjoyed this through and through.
>>39966460Hey, glad you enjoyed it! Was pretty fun to write, and once that idea had been placed in my head, there was no way not to put it to writing.
Sorry for disappearing last night. Had DnD last night and didn't get back until close to midnight.>>39964832>>39964911"Just last night, in fact," You say; leaning over to give Dawyn a nuzzle, "We had a conversation and while we may not be bound together for long neither of us wanted to waste the time by using it any less than to the fullest extent. This adorable cutie gave me every reason to ask her out. I couldn't resist her charm and enthusiasm and it seems I have a rather critical weakness for that."You smile at her to assure her that, yes, you did intentionally praise her to turn her all blushy and stuttery again. Which very much works as she tries to stutter out a response but it quickly falls apart as she becomes red and eventually trails off.Copper chuckles a bit at this."I can see why," He smiles a little, "The two of you are a bit similar as well, so I suppose it was only a matter of time."What do you do?
>>39966869We smile a little, happy to see Copper seems to be warming up to Dawyn a little, keeping close to her side throughout. Glancing over our shoulder, we check to see if Tanssija and Smoke are still sleeping in their tent via soul sight."Do you need a hoof with breakfast?"All good, just glad to know you're okay if anything, and got to have some fun at D&D as well.
>>39966869We giggle, giving Dawyn a kiss, not to necessarily calm her down, but not to necessarily embarrass her further either."So you said you were making soup, Right? That's broth with noodles in it, correct?"
>>39966882>>39966931You smile a little, happy to see that Copper was warming up to Dawyn a bit. You lean over and give Dawyn a kiss, not to calm her down, but not to embarrass her further. You then look over your shoulder where you see that Tanssija's soul was moving around a bit while Smoke's was still resting."Do you need a hoof with breakfast?" You ask."No, I got it," He shakes his head, "This soup is pretty simple to make.""That's broth with noodles in it, correct?""Can be. Soup can have noodles or it could have a variety of other things," He says, "You can do a lot of things with soup.""What kind of soup are you making then?" Dawyn asks."Ukha," He explains, "It's a fish soup that's commonly made where I'm from. Salmon, rice, carrots, onions, potatoes, parsley, dill, salt, and pepper. It's one of my favorites to make."What do you do?
>>39967007We run through the ingredients in our head, having some concept of most of them, but the individual flavors being relatively unknown, let alone what they might be like together."It smells good, so I can see why it would be a favorite. If you're inclined, I would like to learn the recipe and preparation required at some point. What other sorts of dishes are common to your birthplace?"
>>39967093You go through the ingredients in your head, having a concept of some of them. You've had fish before, but after the few times Master had cooked them you tried to avoid them. This would hopefully be different though, as it smelled a lot better."It smells good, so I can see why it would be a favorite," You tell him, "If you're inclined, I would like to learn the recipe and preparation required at some point. What other sort of dishes are common to your birthplace?"He leans up a bit and pulls the top of the pot off with his magic, looking over it before putting the lid back on and taking the pot out of the fire while floating some bowls over."I was raised in a small fishing town in Cannor Mainland so a lot of our dishes had seafood of some kind in it like crabs, clams, fish, and you get the idea. Things like Sugudai, several fish cut into large chunks and served with various toppings and we have Stroganina as well."As Copper speaks you hear a tent open behind you, looking over your shoulder to see that it was Tanssija coming out. She stretches herself in the sun before trotting over.What do you do?
>>39967250"Morning, Tanssija. Glad you could join us, Copper was just telling us about fish based dishes local to his town. Should we expect Smoke to follow soon?""Now, you mentioned Sugudai, that is fish chopped up and served with toppings, but without cooking? Is raw fish common?"Turning subtly to Dawyn, we glance between her and Copper, trying to hint the common ground they could discuss in fishing.
>>39967311"Morning, Tanssija. Glad you could join us, Copper was just telling us about fish based dishes local to his town. Should we expect Smoke to follow soon?""He said he wanted a bit more sleep, so we'll see." She shrugs; sitting down near the two of you.You turn back to Copper."Now, you mentioned Sugudai, that is fish chopped up and served with toppings, but without cooking?"He nods."Is raw fish common?""Eating it? Not really. There are a few dishes with raw fish, but the only one I know is Sugudai.""Really," Dawyn asks, "Back in Arzakhtinsk fish is eaten raw.""Really? That a Dragon Pony thing?""Apparently," She shrugs, "I think it's because Dragon Pony stomachs can digest that better."What do you do?
>>39967543At the very least brown scaled dragony specialize in acid, I'd be surprised if you couldn't eat near about anything with little issue. Though if that is a consistent trait throughout every dragon pony then the benefits of having dragon linage goes further than I thought. Or... It could be a trade off, what of tougher root vegetables and hay any issues working them down?
>>39967543How should we approach the topic with Tanssija on the fact we're also dating Dawyn with her brother's permission.
>>39967568>>39967651"At the very least brown scaled Dragon Ponies specialize in acid, I'd be surprised if you couldn't eat near about anything with little issue. Though if that is a consistent trait throughout every Dragon Pony then the benefits of having Dragon lineage goes further than I thought," You say, "Or... It could be a trade off, what of tougher root vegetables and hay. Any issues working them down?""No," She shakes her head; turning to Copper, "I would still be a bit careful around raw fish though..."As she talks with Copper you look over at Tanssija who was looking at the two of you. After a moment you notice her eyes were staring at your still connected hooves, confusion filling her gaze.What do you do?
>>39967961'Hmm, I should go reassure and remind her of the arrangement I have with her brother. I thought she got a good idea of it but to stop any misunderstanding I shouldn't assume that.'Standing up we let go of Dawyn's hoof, and pat her on the shoulder. Il'' be back soon, I think I have to go say something to Smoke and Tanssija.Leaving her with Copper we move over to the other members of our party.Good morning. Before anything is said, I want to put it out in the open that between Hannu and I we have a more non standard relationship.Looking at them both in the eyes one after the other.I assume you both heard while I was talking to Hannu on the mirror as I encouraged him to tell me about any hot doe's he saw and suggesting he pursue them?To explain, I can't be the wife Hannu needs to rule. For more than a few reasons. It'd be unfair on him having to wait on me to see him maybe once every couple of years. But we still like each other, so currently we're trying out a more open relationship between us seeing if this works.
>>39968027Smoke is still asleep. Also, I think this would make her more confused on why we bring this up without more context.I wish I could think of an alternative, but it's been hard for me to write lately. I think I have a bit of writer's block at the moment.
>>39968027>>39969568'Hmm, I should go reassure and remind her of the arrangement I have with her brother. I thought she got a good idea of it but to stop any misunderstanding I shouldn't assume that.'You stand up and let go of Dawyn's hoof, patting her on the shoulder as she looks up at you."I'll be back soon, I think I have to go say something to Tanssija."She nods. You leave her with Copper as you get Tanssija to follow you to the edge of the camp."Moved pretty quick." Tanssija comments; half joking, but waiting to hear your explanation."Before anything is said, I want to put it out in the open that between Hannu and I we have a more non-standard relationship," You explain to her, "I assume you heard while I was talking to Hannu on the mirror as I encouraged him to tell me about any hot does he saw and suggested he pursue them?""Yeah, thought you were joking a bit though.""To explain, I can't be the wife Hannu needs to rule with. For more than a few reasons. It'd be unfair on him having to wait on me to see him maybe once every couple of years. We still like each other, so currently we're trying out a more open relationship between us seeing if this works."Tanssija looks up at the sky for several moments, then nodding."It is a little strange, but it's probably the best way the relationship would work," She says, "I do hope you're planning on telling him about this."What do you do?
>>39969672We look at Tanssija a touch oddly tilting our head to the side a touch and slowly blinking.I plan on doing so tonight during the time we set for ourselves. I want to hear what he thinks, if his thoughts change on this specific style of relationship change at all or not. Perhaps it'll encourage him in his own pursuits.If I didn't tell him the whole relationship wouldn't work?We smirk a bit.I'll have to let Hannu know even after everything you're still doing your best to look out for him~>>39969568I figured going over and cutting things off at the pass would be the best way to deal with this. The context being she deserves to have Luscinia be upfront with her about this.Luscinia falls for ponies really fast because her only context for relationships is books where characters near instantly sweep each other off their hooves.
>>39969672We smile a little, somewhat relieved."I intend to as soon as I'm able, I was waiting in part for you and Smoke to wake, actually. Approaching Hannu before hoof would've been ideal, but this is all quite unprecedented to both myself and him."Our thoughts drifting to what Hannu might look like through the mirror, having just awoken, we close our eyes and beam as memory and fantasy mingle in our mind. Subtly shaking our head, we school our expression for the most part, blushing faintly. Not wanting Tanssija to have the chance to tease us, we strike first, though gently."I trust you slept well with Smoke?"Was gonna post something but was too busy and slow, and this works.>>39969568Sorry to hear you've got writer's block, hope that passes. I know sometimes it's hard to come up with something myself.
>>39969734>>39969740You smile slightly, somewhat relieved."I plan on doing so as soon as I'm able. I want to hear what he thinks, if his thoughts change on this specific style of relationship or not. I was waiting in part for you and Smoke to wake, actually. Approaching Hannu beforehoof would've been ideal, but this is all quite unprecedented to both myself and him."Your thoughts drift to what Hannu might look like through the mirror, having just woken up because of your call, closing your eyes and beaming as memory and fantasy mingle around in your mind. You eventually shake your head a bit, schooling your expression but still having a faint blush."If I didn't tell him the whole relationship wouldn't work?""If I were him I would want to be told regardless." She shrugs.You smirk a bit at this."I'll have to let Hannu know even after everything you're still doing your best to look out for him~."She blinks at this and then smiles."It's what an older sibling should do. I don't want to see him get hurt.""...I trust you slept well with Smoke?" You ask; teasing her a bit."Yep, we slept well. It did get a bit cold last night, but a heat crystal took care of that," She says, "I assume you slept good? Any interesting dreams?"What do you do?
>>39969907"Perhaps."We say cryptically, letting her draw her own conclusions... at least until we remember beneath our disguise, both ourself and our outfit are still a bit damp (assuming were still wearing that?), making our ears burn.'I will need to bathe quickly before we set out, or at least wipe down.'"I did sleep well, and wasn't too bothered by the cold, but the tent and the heating crystal likely contributed majorly to that. I don't look forward to trying to sleep through a blizzard though. For now though, we should probably rejoin the others."
>>39969907We nod trying to hide the blush on our face."I slept beautifully, thank you. Waking up to a cute mare on your chest is something I recommend. I think Smoke would agree.""... Remember that hippogriff I told you about in Solimysk? He's been appearing in my dreams occasionally, last night included. He's a friend, but whether he's an imaginary friend, or someone I will meet in the future is to be determined."
>>39970191SecondingGotta say though, on one hand, describing Jaaja as someone we might meet in the future feels odd, but on the other, gods and prophetic dreams definitely exist. Feels a little naive and optimistic, but that suits Luscinia in a way.
>>39970067>>39970191>>39970213"Perhaps."You say cryptically, trying to hide the blush on your face by making her think a bit... until you remember beneath your disguise, you were still slightly damp which makes your ears burn as well.'I will need to bathe quickly before we set out, or at least wipe down.'"I slept beautifully, thank you. Waking up to a cute mare on your chest is something I recommend. I think Smoke would agree.""Definitely would." She chuckles in agreement."...Remember that Hippogriff I told you about in Solimyssk?""Yeah.""He's been appearing in my dreams occasionally, last night included. He's a friend, but whether he's an imaginary friend, or something I will meet in the future is to be determined.""Yeah," She agrees; the two of you slowly returning to the camp, "It is strange for a single Hippogriff to keep reappearing in your dreams. Do you know what spurred your mind to keep putting a Hippogriff in your dreams?"What do you do?
>>39970256Hippogriffs are tied to my profession, it is the reason they came into being actually. Beyond this connection I don't know. Every scenario I had with him is completely different with the only constant being the location of his lodge (?) By the frozen shore(?). Either this is something I made up, or Morena is telling me to visit him there.">>39970213I thought about reacting it, but I know by the time I would have told him to redact, it would be too late.
>>39970256'I've not met one, and outside of descriptions and some rare depictions, I've not even seen a corpse that I can recall. Those depictions were anatomical, but limited in many respects, at that.'"... No obvious link outside of passive association between myself and their past as a species, or a curiosity about the inhabitants, and I'd know if I'd met him prior. Perhaps a fixation stems from the former, in an attempt at making a connection relating to... who I am, but he is consistent enough in appearance and personality, not an ephemeral concept, and seems to appear in situations where I might be considered vulnerable. Always in his home as well, a vaguely consistent location. I'm not sure I can even point to my recent brush with death or my Goddess, as I dreamt of him prior to Alln Lenora."We make sure to whisper these last parts, and stand ready to explain what we know of Hippogriff origin if she doesn't know.
>>39970313*or a curiosity about the inhabitants of Estys.>>39970308Seconding!I think it's an interesting enough line, and in a world of high fantasy magic, one is allowed to wonder about Gods and such.
>>39970308>>39970313>>39970315'I've not met one, and outside of descriptions and some rare depictions, I've not even seen a corpse that I can recall. Those depictions were anatomical, but limited in many respects, at that.'"No obvious link outside of Hippogriffs being tied to my profession, or a curiosity about the inhabitants, and I'd know if I'd met him prior.

Every scenario I had with him is completely different with the only constant being the location of his lodge by The Frozen Shore. Either this is something I made up, or Morena is telling me to visit him there."You whisper these last few parts as the two of you get closer to camp. Copper and Dawyn were eating the soup he made now and Smoke had come out of the tent at some point when the two of you were first talking."Why would a goddess of necromancy be interested in Hippogriffs though," Tanssija asks; lowering her voice to a whisper as well, "You would think she would be interested in other things like... skeletons, I guess?"Seems she doesn't know about the origin of Hippogriffs.What do you do?
>>39970450Seeing that this is going to be a lengthy expansion, we turn around and walk back."It's only natural, living in Alln Lenora which stray from all things Necromancy. Their entire existence is recent, about 250 years ago by the Necromancer Sylvan Sea. They're constructs created for, *sigh* world domination, mixing Griffons and Ponies together.""After Sylvan Sea's defeat, they have gained their own consciousness and freedom. Do to their upbringing, they're the only ones to naturally develope necromantic magic (?), but they mostly devote themselves to alchemy."
>>39970450>>39970476(me)First of all that's a very rude thing to say. She loves all of her worshipers equally, living or dead.
>>39970450Grabbing our journal and flipping to near the back, we begin making a quick drawing of a male griffon on the left page, and a pony stallion on the right, taking a little bit of inspiration from the only Hippogriff we've 'seen' up to this point and making them both a bit lanky."They're a young species, fully alive and not technically tied to her, as far as is public knowledge it seems. So I can why it might not be obvious. It's my understanding that many gods have 'children' species, or species from which they're born.""Someone realized an undead army would be too taxing in terms of mana, connections to a singular soul, and micromanagement, for true world domination, so they created a living work force, slaves that were sentient, distinct, and perhaps matching some hidden ideal... Naturally, he died, and they survived, gaining true freedom. When you ask why Morena is interested in Hippogriffs, I ask, why wouldn't a Goddess love her 'children'?"Making sure she can see what we've done, we turn to the next page, then fold the left one in half, to reveal the front half griffon and the backhalf stallion, joined but with an obvious seam in the middle.>>39970476>>39970500Seconding!I like the line gently chiding her for being rude.
>>39970476>>39970500>>39970512Seeing that this was going to be a lengthy explanation, you turn around and start trotting back. Tanssija is confused for a moment before realizing and following."First of all that's a very rude thing to say. She loves all of her worshipers equally, living or dead."Once the two of you were at a good distance you take out your journal and flip to near the back of it, creating a quick drawing of a male Griffon on the left page and a Pony stallion on the right."Second, it's only natural, living in Alln Lenora which strays from all things Necromancy. They're a young species, fully alive and not technically tied to her, as far as is public knowledge it seems. So I can say why it might not be obvious. It's my understanding that many gods have 'children' species, or species from which they're born.""You're correct in that," She nods, "It's fairly common for gods to have children species.""250 years ago someone, a Necromancer named Sylvan Sea, realized an undead army would be too taxing in terms of mana, connections to a singular soul, and micromanagement, for true world domination, so he created constructs for that by mixing Griffons and Ponies together and using them as slaves," You explain, "After Sylvan Sea's defeat, they gained their own consciousness and freedom. Because of their upbringing, they're the only ones to naturally develop Necromantic magic, but they mostly devote themselves to alchemy."Making sure she could see what you've done you turn your journal to the next page, then fold one of the papers in half to join the front half of the Griffon and the back half of the stallion together."...So this Sylvan Sea made these living beings as slaves and he did it by..."After several seconds she shivers."S-Sorry, that's just... A-Anyway, it is interesting they have inherit magic. I'm surprised I haven't heard about them before, but given the magic they have I can see why I haven't considering Alln Lenora's stance on it."What do you do?
>>39970692We nod our head solemnly."One necromancer can't maintain an army alone. They would have to work with other Necromancers, either devoted or created. My Master created Kost for that reason, but the souls he had, sorry, has, were already devoted to him and agreed to the transformation. The servants that worked under him were either alive and willing or literally owed him their life or unlife."
>>39970692"To be perfectly honest, I'm not certain how widespread the knowledge is. There would be no hiding their origin from a dedicated researcher, but they may not generally wish to have the topic of their magic dragged to the forefront. I know next to nothing of their true culture, whatever may have been established, though publicly, they will likely shy away from and shun the practice that likely has them outcast from many other cultures. In that sense, there is a kinship, but also the question of who can be trusted."
>>39970799>>39970836You nod your head solemnly."One Necromancer can't maintain an army alone. They would have to work with other Necromancers, either devoted or created. My Master created Kost for that reason, but the souls he had, sorry, has were already devoted to him and agreed to the transformation. The servants that worked under him were either alive and willing or literally owed him their life or unlike."You shake your head a bit."To be perfectly honest, I'm not certain how widespread the knowledge is. There would be no hiding their origin from a dedicated researcher, but they may not generally wish to have the topic of their magic dragged to the forefront," You say, "I know next to nothing of their true culture, whatever may have been established, though publicly, they will likely shy away from and shun the practice that likely has them outcast from any other cultures.""Which is probably why they're going into other things like alchemy," She replies, "Hopefully they aren't getting that bad of treatment."She looks over at you."If we come to a town or city that has Hippogriffs we could go see them."What do you do?
>>39970916"I'd quite like that. For now though, we should probably rejoin the others. Wouldn't want to miss breakfast, after all."
>>39970916I was planning on it, if you'd like to come with me I'd have no issue with that.>>39970799I'm not quite sure if that's very true, Luscinia's master only started to tilt towards a more kinder attitude in the later years due to Luscinia's influence on him?
>>39970916"Are you saying that for my benefit, or did I get you interested in seeing them?" We intended to say coyly, but comes off in our usual monotone."I enjoy Jaaja, the hippogriff in my dreams, I enjoy his company, but would like to know what's beyond his walls, and substantially, what a Hippogriff settlement would look like.">>39971090I never said he didn't use slaves, just he has devoted necromancers to do his bidding like a tyrant or false god. I should have specified more clearly those that did devote to him are fellow necromancers that believed in his cause.
>>39970997>>39971090>>39971384"Are you saying that for my benefit, or did I get you interested in seeing them?" You ask coyly, but it just comes off in your usual monotone."A little bit of both." She shrugs with a smile."I enjoy Jaaja, the Hippogriff in my dreams, I enjoy his company, but would like to know what's beyond his walls, and substantially, what a Hippogriff settlement would look like. So I was planning on it, if you'd like to come with me I'd have no issues with that," You tell her, "For now though, we should probably rejoin the others. Wouldn't want to miss breakfast, after all.""Definitely not." She agrees.The two of you turn back to camp and actually return this time to have breakfast, which you enjoyed quite a bit. After that you didn't waste any time in getting the camp packed up and traveling up the road once more. The morning was quiet and uneventful and this continued until the early afternoon when Tanssija spotted some clouds on the horizon. In about an hours time the clouds revealed themselves to be a massive storm with a torrential downpour of rain. To make matters worse this rain took no time at all to turn the dirt road the five of you were traveling on into a muddy path. The Yascheritsas pulling the carriage didn't have too many troubles with the mud, even when they were pulling the carriage, but for you and Smoke it wasn't a good time. The two of you eventually decided to get onto the roof of the carriage with Dawyn and Tanssija to get out of the mud. Thanks to these conditions you didn't arrive to Mineshi until what you guessed to be around dinner time.As you got to the very outskirts of Mineshi the roads thankfully turned to cobblestone, a welcoming sight combined with the outline of the town itself. As Smoke explained to you Mineshi was, as the name implied, a mining town and one that had been around for a while now. The town itself was built at the base of an area of large hills where the mines were which brought up various different ores and gems that were sent off to the wider parts of Smochkala or traded to some of the kingdom's neighbors. The town was still small, but it has been attracting Ponies from all over seeking to get rich from the rumors of gold near Mineshi or get lucky in the mining business of the town. The town didn't have any walls surrounding it, being a large collection of wood and stone buildings in the main area with some nicer looking homes surrounding it on the outskirts. It still had guards on the roads and as the five of you made your way up the road to the town you spot two of them guarding the road just outside of the main cluster of buildings, standing in the rain in their armor looking miserable.Cont.
>>39972808"Lovely day to travel, huh?" One of the guards shouts at Copper; a Unicorn stallion."Very much," Copper replies sarcastically, "I would've stopped, but there weren't any good places on the road to here.""I figured," The guard continues, "If you keep going straight and then turn left at the first turn you see you'll get to the stable and a block down is The Rolling Boulder inn, should have room for the lot of you.""Thank you." "No problem," The guard nods; pausing as he looks up at the five of you, "...Didn't have a good time with this weather either, huh?""Nope!" Smoke responds."If the four of you are looking for something to do the Baron of Mineshi has been looking for adventurers for an important job. You can probably ask about it more at his manor," The guard explains, "You probably all want shelter though, so I won't keep you any longer."The guard steps out of the way so the five of you could keep going.What do you do?
>>39972824We might see about it once we get things settled. Thank you for the tip.We proceed quickly from there heading to where the guard had directed.
>>39972824'At least no one will question why my gown is wet anymore.'We look to Dawyn."It's getting late and this drizzle isn't ideal. We should rest up and look for those ruins tomorrow."We then turn to Armas who's under our cloak to 'stay dry'."Does the rain bother you? Would you like to stay inside with us?"
>>39972824We quietly converse with the others."The Baron's job will likely be tied to the mines. We will need to get situated regardless, but how long could meeting with the Baron take?">>39972910Sibashika's the town with ruins, this is a mining town along the way.
>>39972841>>39972910>>39972948'At least no one will question why my gown is wet anymore.'"We might see about it once we get things settled. Thank you for the tip."Copper gets the carriage going again and the five of you are brought into town towards the stables. As you arrive you open up your cloak a bit to look at Armas who had gotten under your cloak to 'stay dry'."Does the rain bother you? Would you like to stay inside with us?"He just nods quietly, knowing that the others were nearby.The five of you stop at the stables and get the Yascheritsas into their shelter. Once they were secure Copper lets the four of you go to the inn where you quietly converse with them."The Baron's job will likely be tied to the mines. We will need to get situated regardless, but how long could meeting with the Baron take?""The guard said it was an important job, so it hopefully won't take too long to meet with him," Smoke says, "How long the actual meeting will take place could be anyone's guess.""A good rule I learned is that if there is a meeting with nobility or someone with a high rank in society; always assume that the meeting will go twice as long." Tanssija comments."Still, we don't know how long it'll actually take." Smoke points out."Maybe we could go after we get our rooms sorted and dry off?" Dawyn suggests.As she suggests this the four of you arrive at The Rolling Boulder and go in through the door. Warm, dry air hits your body and the smell of food tickles your nose. You come in to a large main room that had two stories to it, the first with a counter and tavern area where food was being brought out to awaiting patrons. There was also an area with some decoration and stairs that went up to the second story which was probably where the rooms were."...M-Maybe some dinner as well?" Dawyn suggests as well.What do you do?
>>39972948In that case, my idea with Armas has no bareing.I was thinking about using him to look for the ruins. At the same time though, we should know if he'll be ok with being around us during sexy time. (Probably will.)
>>39973047Dinner sounds good. Especially considering that going to speak with the baron now would possibly interrupt their dinner.
>>39973047We look to Dawyn with a bit of concern, only to smile from seeing her all too familiar cute blush."We can order food and rooms, then change into dryer clothes as they prepare our food.""The question now is do want to have a table for ourselves, or are you comfortable with a double date?"(I could be misreading the situation. Short on time.)
Forgot to say DnD soon. Akxire's player is running a one-shot.>>39973098>>39973208You look over at Dawyn with some concern, only to smile to see that she had her now all too familiar cute blush."Dinner sounds good. We can order some food and rooms, then change into dryer clothes as they prepare our food. Especially considering that going to speak with the Baron now would possibly interrupt their dinner.You then turn around to face her, Tanssija and Smoke watching in curiosity."The question now is do we want to have a table for ourselves, or are you comfortable with a double date?"Her blush grows and her eyes widen, ears flattening against her head."T-That's n-not what I-I... A-A d-double date is f-fine.""...Guess we're doing this now." Smoke comments quietly to Tanssija.Your smile grows a bit at her cuteness. You turn around and the four of you trot up to the counter that was being run by an elderly Unicorn mare. She takes your order of food and then handles the rooms, eventually floating over two keys and placing them on the counter in front of you."Here you are: two rooms," She smiles, "All of the rooms have a double bed, so feel free to decide who gets what room. The rooms are fifteen Grivna a night and this payment is expected every morning. The only immediate payment at the moment is twenty Grivna for the food which we can bring up to your rooms if you don't want to eat out here."What do you do?
>>39973355Nodding, we pass the mare the required Grivna before turning to Smoke and Tanssija."You're not obligated to join us, I was more teasing the opportunity. If you two do feel like it though, I would relish the chance."To Dawyn."Your preference is important as well, I just thought it might feel more casual."In a bit of a rush. Good luck with D&D, Pluto!
>>39973355We take our group grivna and prepay the amount of days we're staying per room and the money for the food. (Because I forgot the amount of days we're staying here)>>39973523Seconding! I'm glad you have them a way out. I tried to think of a way to do so.
Hey, so my game is going for a long time and I think there is still a ways to go. Gonna stop for the night here, cause by the time I get out it'll probably be late.Have a good night!
>>39973523>>39973601Nodding, you take out from Grivna from the group fund and pass it to her, giving her some Grivna for the food and thirty Grivna for two nights. You might not stay for that long, but just in case.>45 Grivna was removed from the group Grivna fundYou then turn to Smoke and Tanssija."You're not obligated to join us, I was more teasing the opportunity," You tell them, "If you two do feel like it though, I would relish the chance."The two look over at each other, coming to a silent agreement as they look back at you."As long as Dawyn is fine with it, we would be happy to." Tanssija tells you, Smoke nodding in agreement.With that you turn to Dawyn."Your preference is important as well, I just thought it might feel more casual.""L-Like I said, I-I'm fine with it," Dawyn stammers with a blush, "I-I want to dry off first though."What do you do?
>>39976265With a little nod and a smile, we kiss her forehead."I'll need to do the same, and touch up my make up. So, (20 minutes/half hour) to dry off, settle in, and then we reconvene in mine and Dawyn's room then?"Pass around the keys as needed, then make our way to our room so we can settle in, making sure our usual disguise spell is in place before messing with our armor at all.
>>39976265We smile and give her a quick kiss."It sounds like a date then. I don't know about the rest of you but I think some reason got into my armor. I can hear my girls sloshing around."To accentuate our point, We sway our hips, where faint sloshing noises can be heard.(Had to write this quickly. Apparently we are so understand tonight, that the Big Cheese had to step in. I may miss a few posts.)
>>39976392>>39976411You smile and give her a kiss on the forehead."Sounds like a date then. I'll need to do the same, and touch up my makeup. I don't know about the rest of you but I think some rain got into my armor. I can hear them sloshing around."To accentuate this you sway your hips a bit, a faint sloshing being heard that makes Dawyn blush more."So, twenty minutes to dry off, settle in, and then we reconvene in mine and Dawyn's room then?""Sounds good." Smoke nods.You pass the other key to the two and then the four of you head up the stairs to your room, sliding the key into the lock and stepping inside. The two of you are met with a small, but quaint room with a double bed that had room for the two of you and a small table with two chairs in the corner along with a dresser to store your things. To the left side of the room was a door which Dawyn trots over to while you step inside."...It's a bathroom," Dawyn says as she opens the door and looks inside, "You want to dry off first?"What do you do?
>>39976567Why take turns?
>>39976567"You go first: less fur and surface area means you'll be faster, and no amount of skill can get make up done instantly. Unless you feel you need a hoof."We offer, a mix of playful and genuine. When she's looking away (or has closed the door), cast the disguise spell on our hidden cutie marks.With the door closed behind us, and the spell in place, we start taking off our armor and cloak, leaving our gown for the moment, regardless of Dawyn sticking around, pausing for a moment to check if Armas is still using us as cover.Not really too pressing, but I don't think Armas ever did see our teats.>>39976411Hope you're able to join, but take care of yourself
>>39976685>>39976713"Why take turns?" You ask."W-Well b-because uh..."You smile a little and shake your head."You go first: less fur and surface area means you'll be faster, and no amount of skill can get make up done instantly. Unless you feel you need a hoof."You offer to her, a mix of playful and genuine. Despite her blush she smiles at you."T-Thanks for the offer. I can d-do it myself."She then trots inside and closes the door behind her. Once she was inside you cast Disguise on yourself again and start taking off your armor and cloak, leaving your gown on for the moment. As you take your stuff off Armas comes out, landing on the edge of the bed. The two of you wait quietly until Dawyn comes back out five minutes later."You can use it now, Silver." She announces, now dried off."Thank you."You trot by her and close the door behind you. Similar to the room itself the bathroom was quite small with a large wooden bucket being used for a bath and then a wooden bench with a large wooden keg with a faucet as the sink with a mirror above it.What do you do?
>>39976983Working swiftly in the limited room we have, we toss aside our gown and forgo our damp bra a little more delicately, hanging both up to dry as we check ourself in the mirror, grabbing a towel to wipe off as much excess as we can from the rest of our body, enjoying the sense of freedom in our nudity.Glancing to the side, we spy through the walls on our other compatriots to see how far along they might be.'A simple touch up will do; too much might make Dawyn feel under prepared, and casual is the ideal.'Applying our usual make up doesn't take long at all, though reaching into our bag, we spy a little bit of purple lipstick. Biting our lip, we set the lipstick on the counter for now, knowing it'll only take a minute to apply, if we do decide to.Tossing on a fresh gown, we opt not to wear our still drying bra.A bit unsure on my post. Rushing through stuff, but I don't think we need to do too much prep as is.
>>39976983 That was quick. I was hoping to talk to Armas for a bit, mostly to tease him about "watching"'... But no towels.'We take off everything then shake our body like we've seen some Fetz do trip shake off the water on us. Still very damp, we stand on our hind legs and ignite a flame on both hooves too generate some heat to speed up the process.Once dry, we put on our lacy bra and panties from Alln Lenora and a new gown.We then look at ourself in the mirror. Curious, we use our soul sense to see if we can see our mare's soul through the mirror and isn't as modest as she lets on.If she is peeping, we smile to ourself.'I hope you enjoyed the show, Dawyn~''I should apply my makeup differently, both for our date and for the Barron. The last thing I need to be is recognized as a criminal to a Nobel.We decide to go for something soft, utilizing pink, yellow, and turquoise.(Open for different colors.)>>39976713Technically, he did possess our body, but I don't think he's seen them properly.Also, the last thing I wanted was being caught lacking when the Head Honcho was around. The Big Man wouldn't tolerate me slacking on the clock. He's gone now.
>>39977067Seconding!Ye, would've been fun to tease Armas a little. A little skeptical on fire usage, given our flammability and aversion to it, but it's probably not as scary when we control it.Also, now you've got me picturing us spotting Tanssija peeping on Smoke, and then hearing when he discovers her through the wall.
>>39977064>>39977067>>39977083'...No towels though.'Moving quickly in the limited room that you had, you toss aside your gown and forgo your damp bra a bit more delicately than the gown, hanging both to dry on the edge of the wooden tub. You then shake your entire body like a dog to get the water off, which turned out to work pretty well. You were still damp, so you stand on your hind legs and ignite a flame on both of your hooves to generate some heat and speed up the process while enjoying the sense of freedom in your nudity. Once you were completely dry you put on your lacy bra and panties from Alln Lenora and your new gown as well.You then turn and look at yourself in the mirror. A bit curious as to what the others were up to you use your soul sight to see if you could see your group's souls through the mirror where you spot Smoke and Tanssija's souls in their room still getting ready. You also spot Dawyn's soul right outside the bathroom door, making you smile as the Dragon Mare turned out to not be as modest as she lets on.'I hope you enjoyed the show, Dawyn~."You don't say anything as you take out your makeup bag and look everything over.'I should apply my makeup differently, both for our date and for the Barron. The last thing I need is to be recognized as a criminal. Still, a simple touch up should do; too much might make Dawyn feel underprepared.'You apply your makeup in the usual matter, but change the colors up from darks and purples to some pink, yellow, and turquoise. As you go through this process you spy your purple lipstick. Biting your lip, you set the lipstick on the counter for now, knowing it wouldn't take long to apply.With the rest of the makeup done you look at yourself in the mirror. You looked nice, still casual even with the change in makeup color, so it hopefully shouldn't scare off Dawyn. She's probably already seen a bit of it though with her soul still near the door.What do you do?
>>39977223'I'll stick with the lighter tones. If Dawyn took note of the lipstick and is curious, I'll simply apply it and kiss her later... or perhaps she could help me apply it. A little surprised Armas didn't ward her away from the door at all, though I guess the fact we're sharing a bed and dating does afford her some leeway. Perhaps I could tease him about that later, pretend he's not as chivalrous as I thought or was consider peeping himself.'Deciding we look good, we sweep the lipstick into our bag, check out ourself in the mirror for another moment surreptitiously to let our little voyeur hybrid marefriend get a look and a chance to slip away, our flanks mostly covered at this point anyway, before swiftly turning around and heading for the door, regardless of ready Dawyn is for our approach.Open the door."Hopefully the food will be here before long, as I'm quite famished."Reminded of an idea that was discussed a while back. Curse of Heat lipstick. We'll need to experiment and figure out how to target people better with curses, but it really could be a lot of fun.Also, was tempted to make an illusion of whatever she was seeing from the door way, so we could approach and give her a little kiss.
>>39977223We reach for our choker and let it wrap around our neck. Looking good, we open the door, 'ignorant' to the peeping pink soul behind it.
>>39977223'I wonder... How much can I do without scaring her off. The girls are a bit sore after the long walk.'Lay down rump raised held up by the twins and facing the door, taking our mane in our hooves and pull it to the side and start braiding it neatly working it into a neat and tight so it will stay out of our eyes.(I'm caught between wanting to ask Dawyn for help braiding our tail or doing it ourselves and putting on a show for her.)>>39977265Seconded.
>>39977265>>39977346>>39977362'I wonder... How much can I do without scaring her off. The girls are a bit sore after the long walk.'You lay yourself down with your rump raised by your twins and facing the door, taking your mane in your hooves to pull it off to the side and start braiding it, working it neat and tight so that it'll stay out of your eyes. When that was done you raise yourself back up.'I'll stick with the lighter tones. If Dawyn took note of the lipstick and is curious, I'll simply apply it and kiss her later... or perhaps she could help me apply it. A little surprised Armas didn't ward her away from the door at all, though I guess the fact we're sharing a bed and dating does afford her some leeway. Perhaps I could tease him about that later, pretend he's not as chivalrous as I thought or was considering peeping himself.'You reach for your little vine choker and wrap it around your neck. With that you decide that you look good, sweeping the lipstick into your bag and checking yourself out in the mirror for another moment to let your little voyeur hybrid marefriend get a look and a chance to slip away. You swiftly turn around and head for the door, opening it up to find her standing near the bed, having taken the opportunity to look like she hadn't done anything."Hopefully the food will be here before long, as I'm quite famished." You comment, looking over at her."Yeah." She comments.Dawyn blushes a bit as she gets up and trots over to you, giving you a kiss on the cheek."You look great, by the way. Love the way you braided your mane."What do you do?
>>39977487The edges of our lips pull upwards our cheeks turning a little redder.Thank you. I don't do it often at all, however I'm glad you like it. Hmm... Looking her in the eyes we swish our tail.Would you like to help me braid my tail? I would have done it myself but I find it a touch difficult. So I'd appreciate the help.
>>39977487We blush a little ourself, offering her a smile."Thank you, you're looking quite radiant yourself. Did you have a little bit of horn or scale polish hidden away in your bag, or does a little water and wipe down really bring out this much in your features?"Giving her a little kiss on the lips, we watch her for a moment as we walk past her and over to the table and two chair, tilting our head in contemplation."We may have to requisition some chairs from Smoke and Tanssija's room, or alternatively, move the table so two of us can sit on the bed, but that may not be too comfortable."
>>39977587>>39977597You blush a little yourself, the edges of your lips pulling upwards."Thank you. I don't do it often at all, however I'm glad you like it. You're looking quite radiant yourself. Did you have a little bit of horn or scale polish hidden away in your bag, or does a little water and wipe down really bring out this much in your features?""W-Well, for scales that's usually good enough," She says, "I do, uh, have some horn polish... for my horns. So they look nice..."You lean forward and give her a kiss on the lips, watching her for a moment as her blush grows and you trot past her. You look over at the table and two chairs, tilting your head a bit in contemplation."We may have to requisition some chairs for Smoke and Tanssija's room, or alternatively, move the table so two of us could sit on the bed, but that may be too comfortable.""We can ask the others when they get done and get over here." Dawyn replies.You nod a little as you look her in the eyes and swish your tail."Would you like to help me braid my tail," You ask her, "I would have done it myself but I find it a touch difficult. So I'd appreciate the help.""Oh! I-I would love to," She stammers, "I-I'm not the best a-at it, but I c-can do it!"She quickly trots forward and gently takes your tail in her clawed hooves, studying it for a moment before looking up at you."D-Do you have a p-preference for it? Or d-do you want m-me to make it l-look like y-your mane?"What do you do?
>>39977754"Match my mane braid. If you're feeling inspired though, you're free to do as you wish."
>>39977754I'm certain you'll do fine. I can give you some directions if you need it but the dexterity of your digits should help well enough. As for your question, If you have a specific idea for my tail you may try it we can always go with one that matches my mane if not or if I'm not sure on it after the fact so there is no harm in experimenting.Every so often when she tugs on our tail during the braiding let out a little gasp.
>>39977778>>39977810"I'm certain you'll do fine. I can give you direction if you need it but the dexterity of your digits should help well enough. As for your question, match my mane braid. If you're feeling inspired though, you're free to do as you wish.""I-I'll match your braid t-then."You feel her get to work slowly braiding your tail to match your mane, occasionally tugging at your tail on accident. After a few tugs you let out a gasp when she does it, causing her to pause and blush each time."T-There," She announces while letting your tail go, "Should be d-done!"You look back at your tail to examine the job she had done. She had done pretty well, and it matched your mane.What do you do?
>>39979484Hm~ Keeping our eyes on our tail hiding our real focus as we pay our true attention to Dawyn's face out of the corner of our eye. We flag our dock upwards Dawyn's work protecting her from a good look at what was underneath, taking a half step to face her we sway our tail swishing it back and forth giving Dawyn a glimpse of our flower if she didn't peak before then as we complete the turn it's all out of sight again.I think you've done quite well actually, you shouldn't down play your skills so much. Ready for dinner? We should probably head off, perhaps the food won't be ready but we can still go see Tanssija and Smoke.
>>39979484We take a moment to admire her work. Smiling, we give ourself a twirl then stop to give her a big smooch on the lips."It's perfect. I have never felt so feminine before. It's feels nice."Give her another big kiss on the lips."They should be coming soon, they still need to go back and get their chairs. We should have enough time for me to return the favor and do your mane too if you like."(Low on time, but want to suggest getting behind her and resting our breasts on her tail.)
>>39979615>>39979616"Hmm~..."You keep your eyes on your tail to hide your real focus as you pay your true attention on Dawyn's nervous, red face out of the corner of your eye. You flag your dock upwards, Dawyn's work protecting her from a good look at what was underneath, but that doesn't stop her eyes from flicking down and then back up. You then take a half step to face her as you sway your tail swishing it back and forth to give her a glimpse of your flower. You then twirl and stop to give her a big smooch on the lips."It's perfect! I think you've done quite well, you shouldn't downplay your skills so much. I have never felt so feminine before. It feels nice."She opens her mouth to respond, but you lean forward and give her another big kiss on the lips before she could say anything, her face completely red as you separate from her."They should be coming soon, they still need to go back and get their chairs. We should have enough time for me to return the favor and do your mane too if you like.""Uh..."*knock knock*There's a knock at the door as you turn to face it, spotting the two souls of Smoke and Tanssija standing just outside waiting for the door to open.What do you do?
>>39979776"That must be them. I'll turn them back, just think about it."We give her a peck on the cheek then head towards the door to open slightly."Hi, Tanssija, hi Smoke. We just need just an extra minute. In the mean time, we only have two chairs here. Mind commandeering two more?""See you soon."We close the door then turn back to Dawyn, watching her patiently.If she wants to, we get behind her leaning in close, pressing our girls into her and gently sitting on her tail so our nethers graze her scales."Done, but I think it needs something to tie it all together..."We reach into our bag for a moon flower and stick it in her main. We then grab our makeup mirror and show it to her."Perfect. You look even more gorgeous."We hug her waste and reach around for another kiss, letting the moment linger until we hear the door nock again."They're here again. I'll answer the door, you move the table, okay?"We release her
>>39979776"Or not. I'll give you a moment."Standing up fully, we offer her a hoof up before making our way to the door, poking our head out."Good evening."Give them both a quick look over."We will require two more chairs, and another moment to rearrange things. Would you two be opposed to fetching the ones from your room?"Get Dawyn's help in moving the table and chairs.>>39979899I don't think we have to be quite so horny, but I'm not opposed. I also can't help being amused by the fact that Armas is likely watching all this. Seconding
>>39979899>>39979917"Or not. I'll turn them back, just think about it."You give her a peck on the cheek before heading towards the door and opening it a bit. It was indeed Smoke and Tanssija, the two no longer wearing their armor instead opting for more casual attire."Good evening Tanssija, Smoke. We just need an extra minute. In the mean time, we only have two chairs here. Mind commandeering two more?""Our room has two as well, so we can bring them over." Smoke nods."See you soon then."You watch the two trot away before closing the door and looking back at Dawyn."I-I would l-like that." She finally tells you.You smile at her and trot back to her, getting behind her and leaning in close to press your girls into her, gently sitting on her tail so your nethers graze her scales. This certainly does a lot to her as she starts blushing again and her entire body stiffens the entire time you braid her short mane. It doesn't take you long to get it into one."Done, but I think it needs something to tie it all together..."You reach down into your bag and take out a moon flower that you stick into her mane. You then grab your makeup mirror to show it to her, the Dragon Mare spending several moments looking at herself before smiling."I like it.""Perfect. You look even more gorgeous."You hug her around her waist and the two of you share another kiss, the moment lingering for a few seconds until there is another knock at the door."They're here again. I'll answer the door, you move the table, okay?""Got it."You release her and open the door again where you see Smoke and Tanssija but with two chairs floating in Smoke's magic behind them."Got the extra chairs.""Good. Dawyn should be done moving the table soon."You look back to see her finishing up with moving the table, getting it into the middle of the room. Smoke and Tanssija come in as Dawyn then moves the two other chairs over, Smoke setting the extra chairs down so that he and Tanssija could sit."Some weather, huh?" Smoke starts the conversation."Real smooth, Smoke." Tanssija giggles a little."What?"What do you do?
>>39980006"Even I'm aware of the cliche of discussing the weather, Smoke."We jokingly chide, the corners of our mouth turned up. Moving over to the table, we pull out the chairs for ourself and Dawyn, letting her take the seat first before joining her."A discussion of hobbies, interests, and recent events is commonplace, as I understand it. And if that alone is not enough to entertain, food, drink, and games. We should see about acquiring more of the latter. Perhaps we could start with something common: we're headed for the Giant ruins, so what do you believe we might find? I would be quite curious about any books or ancient knowledge that might have been preserved."I can't recall if we grabbed a deck of cards at some point.
>>39980006"It is quite the downpour, and rather sudden too. I wonder if pegasi were involved in making this rain. I feel bad for the guards that have to stand there and swim inside of their armor."
>>39980042>>39980123"Even I'm aware of the cliché of discussing the weather, Smoke."You jokingly chide him, the corners of your mouth turned up. You move over to the table, pulling out the chairs for you and Dawyn, letting her take the seat first before sitting down in the seat next to her."It is quite a downpour, and rather sudden too," You do eventually agree, "I wonder if Pegasi were involved in making this rain. I feel bad for the guards that have to stand there and swim inside of their armor.""Spring weather is like that sometimes," Smoke shrugs, "One minute it's nice and sunny and the next you're in the storm of the century.""It was like that back home for me." Dawyn comments."A discussion of hobbies, interests, and recent events is commonplace, as I understand it. And if that alone is not enough to entertain, food, drink, and games," You say, "We should see about acquiring some of the latter. Perhaps we could start with something common: we're headed for the Giant ruins, so what do you believe we might find? I would be quite curious about any books or ancient knowledge that might have been preserved.""Honestly, I would be interested in finding a Giant even if that's unlikely," Tanssija says; looking over at Smoke, "You think we'll find some preserved alcohol?""Probably not, and even if we did that stuff will probably kill us," Smoke shakes his head, "Still, it would be an interesting find."He looks over at Dawyn."What about you, Dawyn?""Mostly history books," She replies, "Though some old Giant spell would be a fantastic and historic find. Only a few Giant spells have been found before."What do you do?
>>39980312Maybe just smelling the alcohol they produced would be enough to get drunk, finding a living giant could possibly let us find out all of those things and more. ... Or might lead to us getting squished. Something to keep in mind this place was built for much larger beings so we'll have to keep an eye open.Lean against Dawyn a little.So how are things between you two? Everything going well?
>>39980312"Any tomes we find made by Giants would be twice our size. It'll be a good chance to test my strength." We say, flexing a foreleg."Do you know if Giants still speak Keyian? I can translate for everyone, and I have a spell that can interprete language if they do. Я cвoбoднo гoвopю и пишy."(A bit unsure. A bit boastful.)
>>39980398>>39980448"Maybe just smelling the alcohol they produced would be enough to get drunk, finding a living Giant could possibly let us find out all of those things and more... Or might lead to us getting squished. Something to keep in mind this place was built for much larger beings so we'll have to keep an eye open.""It'll make it a lot harder to explore." Smoke nods."Any tomes we find made by Giants would be twice our size. It'll be a good chance to test my strength," You say, "Do you know if Giants still speak Keyian? I can translate for everyone, and I have a spell that can interpret language if they do. Ya cvobodno govopyu i pishy.""They speak their own language called Grexhesciyh," Dawyn shakes her head, "It influenced Keyian a lot though, so you might be able to understand parts of it... maybe."You nod a bit as you lean against her, looking at Smoke and Tanssija."So how are things between you two? Everything going well?""As well as it can be," Smoke replies, Tanssija nodding in agreement, "No major disagreements yet. I know it hasn't been that long for you two, but are things going well for you two?"What do you do?
>>39980640Night, Pluto!Got busy with some stuff, and can't make a post at the moment.
>>39980493Glancing over at Dawyn first we smile a little before looking back.I believe things are going just fine, I will need to get that mirror to catch Hannu up on things after dinner but I think that will go fine. Dawyn is even more entertaining to tease than Smoke is and I find conversation with her very easy and natural. >>39980042We have bottles, so spin the bottle is always an option. We didn't grab a deck of cards that I remember.
>>39980856You glace over at Dawyn first, smiling at her before looking back at the two of them."I believe things are going just fine, I will need to get that mirror to catch Hannu up on things after dinner but I think that will go fine," You say, "Dawyn is even more entertaining to tease than Smoke is and I find conversation with her to be very easy and natural.""That's good, someone you feel comfortable talking with," Tanssija smiles before looking over at Smoke and addressing him jokingly, "Sorry dear, it looks like you're getting replaced.""I'm not complaining." Smoke shrugs.Shortly after saying this there is a knock at the door. Smoke excuses himself to go get it, coming back with the food you ordered in his magic."Food is here!" Smoke announces; placing the plates in front of everyone.What do you do?
>>39980493"I believe so. I've enjoyed a great many of the things we've spoken of, whether briefly or at length, and the sense of wonderment that Dawyn shows in many things. I enjoy exploring the parallels and differences between us, physically, historically, and experience wise, searching for a balance between pacing ourselves and making the most of things. And I enjoy seeing her smile and her tail sway. That is simply my opinion though."
>>39981925"Thank you, Smoke."Feeling hungry, we waste little time in digging in, waiting just enough to confirm everyone else is satisfied with what they have. Quietly enjoying the first few bits of our meal with closed eyes and an contented hum, we open our eyes once more to glance around the table.Shifting a hindleg over, we rest our hoof next to Dawyn's, watching her enjoy her meal.Thought about maybe Luscinia being a little too loud in her enjoyment of the food, or studying Dawyn eating, but keeping it simple felt cuter.>>39981927Damn, a smidge too late.
>>39981925Thank you Smoke. 'Every time I see that levitation ability it seems more and more useful. Perhaps I can tap into that, raise a unicorn skull and insert a soul into it. Though I'm not sure I'm quite at the level of giving undead magic, I need to practice more.'Taking a bite of our food we smile from the flavor.So You two, do you want help pushing the beds together?
>>39981974>So You two, do you want help pushing the beds together?All rooms are equipped with one double bed, so they'll almost certainly be sharing
>>39982027Oh, oops. Nevermind then.
>>39981963>>39981974>>39982027>>39982048"Thank you, Smoke."'Every time I see that levitation ability it seems more and more useful. Perhaps I can tap into that, raise a Unicorn skull and insert a soul into it. Though I'm not sure I'm quite at the level of giving undead magic, I need to practice more.'Feeling hungry, you waste no time in taking a bite of your food which was a honey steak with some cooked celery on the side. You quietly enjoy the first few bites of your meal with closed eyes and a contented hum, opening your eyes several seconds later to glance around the table. You eventually shift a hind leg over, resting a hoof next to Dawyn's while watching her enjoy her own meal; a beet and cabbage salad with sausage mixed into it.The four of you quietly enjoy your food for several minutes until the plates were empty, all of you sitting satisfied and with full stomachs."This inn has good food." Tanssija comments."Yeah," Smoke agrees, "Best stuffed bell peppers that I've had in a while."Dawyn nods in agreement as she looks out the window. It had gotten dark by this point thanks to the weather. By the sound of the falling rain pattering against the roof it hasn't let up at all."...You guys think we should wait to see the Barron until tomorrow," Dawyn asks, "Hopefully the rain will let up by then?"What do you do?
>>39982114Or someone else might take the job. Though going back out into that isn't very appealing, especially after the time spent getting cleaned up after we got back the first time.I think there is only one deciding factor that matters, would we do the job tonight? If someone's life was on the line are we in the position to make a difference before getting any rest?Lifting up a hoof we brush one of our braids fiddling with it slightly.No telling if that's the case. Maybe we can ask someone in the inn if they know what is happening before needing to go all that way but if we wouldn't do the job tonight no matter what then there is no point checking what it is tonight.Looking at each of them for a moment before continuing.It is somewhat of an extreme example, but the potential is there for it to be a job that is on a time limit for one reason or another. If we were to go maybe Smoke could levitate something waterproof above us? It wouldn't be quite as miserable that way.
>>39982114"If it's still pouring, that may be best. It would be hard to put our best hoof forward with a noble while covered in rain and mud, and he may expect an expediency that would have us marching through the mud, potentially slipping during a vital moment. There should be some more information available, as this can be no small task, but if he is so desperate for help this very evening, the gatekeeper might have made that a little more clear."

I could find some umbrellas or something that we can borrow to keep us out of the rain. What does everyone think?""I'm fine either way." Tanssija shrugs.What do you do?
>>39982258I'll ask around the tavern. If anyone knows what it might be about that would save us time and effort. In most cases I think being properly prepared like Smoke said is the right choice, getting ourselves into trouble we can't get ourselves out of isn't a good idea.Standing up we go ask around the tavern and see if anyone knows what might be going on with the mines. Forgetting our cloak and being very confused about getting hit on by the drinking folks.
>>39982258"It's dark out. And barring it being anything urgent, I'm in favor of collecting a little information for the moment, and then enjoying the luxuries of good company and some drink."Rushing a bit, not sure on my post>>39982284Still technically in the middle of a double date, afaik, so it might be rude to just get up and ask around. We could at least offer to grab some drinks while we're out. Would be amusing to see Luscinia returning to the room blushing like Dawyn though, but she'd likely start a bar fight if anyone was too forward, based on how we met that pegasus thief
>>39982431Yeah it'd be a bit rude. Luscinia doesn't know any better though. Certainly could go get some drinks at the same time though, nothing wrong with a little multi tasking. It took a second to understand what you meant, if anyone was that forward I'd imagine they'd be smart enough to not be behind our hind hooves. Unless they were really drunk.Don't know if it'd quite be the same automatic reaction if it's just touching not slapping.
>>39982258Finding umbrellas would probably be a good ides since we have no idea if it will continue raining tomorrow. Also, nothing wrong with quickly asking around about the job.

So, I'll go ask around a bit and return to enjoy the luxuries of good company and some drink.""Try not to be gone for too long. You're supposed to be on a date, after all." Tanssija tells you.You nod a bit at this before getting up and heading downstairs where you order some drinks for everyone. When that was done you then ask around the tavern a bit while you wait, finding two Unicorn stallions who were willing to talk."What hasn't been going on with them." The younger of the two complains a bit."A lot of things have been happening with them," The older one explains to you, "A little under a week ago some other miners broke into a cave system that had been undiscovered until then. Would've been fine, but something was living in the cave and it wasn't happy with the miners' presence.""It killed them and escaped into the mines." The younger one finishes for the older one."...That's one way to put it," The older one sighs, "So there's something in the mines now, the miners don't want to work with the thing in the mines, and the town doesn't have enough guards to mount an expedition and try to kill it. Baron Cold Stone has been trying to hire adventurers to deal with it, but he hasn't gotten any bites for it so far.""The mines have also apparently become haunted since the creature arrived," The younger one chimes in, "Something about voices and strange noises with no source being heard in the mines sometimes."The younger stallion turns to the older one and starts waving his forehooves at him."Maybe it's some creature that can control the dead! Ooooooooo~!"The older stallion just shakes his head at him and takes a swig of his drink.What do you do?
>>39982724Nod our head.Is anything known about the creature itself? There has to be some evidence it left behind if it's certain the miners didn't simply find a cave full of deadly gas.Once our drinks are done thank the two stallions and pay for another round for them then head off back to our room.
>>39982724We consider their words for a moment.'It sounds like superstition, possibly mixed with a creature capable of vocal mimicry, yet if it is some form of Necromancy, or simply Spirits being awakened, myself, Dawyn, and Armas may be the best equipped individuals to handle them within several days of here... Could this perhaps be a matter of Changelings being discovered? It seems unlikely, but no less than Necromancy.'"Thank you for sharing, gentlecolts. Was anyone able to provide a testimony of the creature, or destruction it has wrought in the mines?"
>>39982724'The chances are unlikely, but I shouldn't dismiss this possibility. If there was a cave system that existed beforehoof, it's not going to be one creature, but several.'"Has there been frequent crimes that require the guards' immediate attention? Is the Baron stingy on not wasting his own men to go down there?"
>>39982783>>39982835>>39982880You nod your head and consider their words for a moment.'It sounds like superstition, possibly mixed with a creature capable of vocal mimicry, yet if it is some form of Necromancy, or simply Spirits being awakened, myself, Dawyn, and Armas may b the best equipped individuals to handle them within several days.

There has to be some evidence it left behind if it's certain the miners didn't simply find a cave full of deadly gas.""There were bodies of miners found shortly after the cave was discovered. I never saw them, but from the ones that did they said that the bodies were either ripped to shreds or had their throats ripped out." The older one replies."Has there been frequent crimes that require the guards' immediate attention? Is the Baron stingy on not wasting his own Ponies to go down there?" You ask."The crimes in Mineshi are mostly related to alcohol," The younger one explains, "Besides that there isn't much crime, so there isn't a lot of guards here. Not enough to head into the mines."Your drinks finish after this. You take the drinks and thank the two stallions by getting another round for them, heading back up to your room with the drinks."Welcome back," Dawyn greets you as you return, you trotting back over to the table to give the three their drinks, "Anyone say anything?"What do you do?
>>39983025Yes. Two stallions felt a bit chatty and told me few things. Sitting down with them we continue.There was a cave uncovered in the mine, and apparently something lived in it and didn't like being found. The mines might be haunted now and there is some sort of monster stalking the mine shafts.The baron is apparently rather cheap so we may have to be wary of that and get some deal written out before going down there. But this isn't time critical-er most likely anyway, so there's no reason to go tonight.Take a drink and a breath and then let out a sigh.But this is something we can worry about tomorrow now, did I miss anything while I was gone?
>>39983025We return to our seat."Yes. There's a cave system that was discovered by accident within the mines and they suspect a creature has been killing off miners. The bodies found had their throats ripped out, so it's safe to assume the creature is intelligent.""There are also rumors of the mines being haunted claiming some strange noises without any source, but that's most likely superstition and probably psychosomatic. The more likely scenario is that there are more than one creature in that cave, and are able to blend in."
>>39983025"Monster in the mines. Potentially more than one. No survivors, so no testimony, just the cave system they uncovered. Also, it is supposedly haunted now, but I believe there to be a less superstitious, or more malicious source to the bodyless voices heard within... suffice to say, the mines can wait until morning. Until then, cheers."Raising our glass to our friends as we've seen a few patrons do, we take a sip.
>>39983064>>39983077>>39983084You sit back down in your seat."Yes. Two stallions felt a bit chatty and told me a few things.

Smoke comments.You nod in agreement as you take a drink and then let out a sigh."This is all something we can worry about tomorrow. Did I miss anything while I was gone?""Not much," Tanssija shakes her head, "Just asking Dawyn a few questions about her family and stuff."What do you do?
>>39983341Hmm... Seems interesting.We're completely genuine.Perhaps I can be filled in on that later, shall we continue things? Right before we go too much further, this is my second date I believe is it really that rude to go get something in the middle of one?
>>39983341"Sharing embarrassing foalhood stories about family the moment I step away, hmm?"We give her a little kiss."I'm sure they're wondering what their little filly is up to. Imagine the looks on their faces when you share some of the stories and discoveries you've made since you last spoke, I'm sure they'll be overjoyed."
Stopping for the night. The thread is very close to bump limit, so tomorrow Rise will start back up again.Have a good night or day!
I almost completely forgot:Shouldn't Copper have paid us?
