Stunned for a moment by the sensation of teeth on your neck, you soon hug her back, watching as a strand of saliva connecting your lips to Kobelek's cock break before whispering to her."Didn't think you'd get that close. How badly do you need it? He can probably taste your frustration, you know, and he seemed to respond well to my lust. Can you hold on a little longer?"She stares off into space, but after a few moments you she nods against your neck.With your free hoof you grab her by one of her horns again, yanking her up enough to give her horn a nibble and a lick. You then pull her up further until she's laying on top of you, drawing her into a kiss to give her a teasing taste of what had just been filling it as you pull your hoof free from her slit. The two of you soon break, letting the Dragon mare twitch on top of you for a moment."Kobelek, that was... incredible. But there is still someone that needs your attention~."'He didn't cum yet, I don't think? Is Changeling cum bioluminescent too? Do... Changeling males cum? Or is there another process like egg laying or something?'Kobelek watches the two of you, his eyes going over the situation and your position before nodding in agreement."Very much so, and I'm sure it isn't polite to leave someone waiting~."He trots forward and leans his front half down again, his head disappearing behind Dawyn's rump. For a moment you wonder what he was doing until-"Ngggh~! Aaaah~!"Dawyn starts moaning on top of you, her body squirming and hind legs kicking out a bit behind her. Her tail quickly wraps around Kobelek's head and forces him to stay there and eat her out, quickly pushing her back towards the edge.Shaking in pleasure with her claws gripping your chest, she cracks her eyes open to look up at you. She lifts her head up and starts making out with you again, pushing her tongue into you as her moans quickly start to get louder and louder.What do you do?
>>40493599We twist tongues with her pushing back into the kiss with her. 'Someone likes the first hoof experience~'Sliding our hooves over her body we tease her scales rubbing lower and lower starting from her wings and back then her sides and hips, and finally her juicy rump. Giving it a little spank we push down on her ass, grinding her against Kobelek as we bounce the dragon mare up and down on our teats.
>>40493599Accepting her kiss, we show a little strength by slowly pushing her tongue around, returning her affection openly while proving we aren't just a squishy chewtoy to tease, pushing back into her maw. Finding ourself getting lost in her eyes for several seconds, we 'remember' the gentlestallion giving her a taste of what her own tongue can do (assuming hers is bifurcated), we keep an eye on the tail around his head and neck, watching both their souls intently. Waiting for a moment when Dawyn's attention is slipping away and her climax is looming, we grab one of horns suddenly and firmly, hold her lips to ours.>>40493703Seconding!
>>40493703>>40493759You accept the kiss, showing a bit of strength by twisting tongues with her and pushes her back, returning her affection openly while proving that you weren't just a squishy chew toy to tease. Finding yourself beginning to get lost in her eyes for several seconds, you 'remember' the gentlestallion giving her a taste of what her own tongue can do behind her, keeping an eye on the tail around his head and neck. They both seem to be enjoying each other by the sounds of it.'Someone likes the first hoof experience~.'As you wait for her climax to loom once more you content yourself with keeping up with the kiss and sliding your hooves over her body, teasing her scales as you rub lower and lower starting from her wings and back and then her sides and hips, and finally her juicy rump. Giving it a light smack as you push her ass down, grinding her against Kobelek as you bounce the Dragon mare up and down on your teats."Mmm~! Mmm~! MM~!"Hearing her get closer, you drag your hooves back up and grab her horns suddenly and firmly, holding her lips to yours."MMMMMMMMM~!"This all finally pushes her over the edge, her body tensing and shaking repeatedly. You couldn't see what was going on down there, but you could feel her warm juices hitting her lower lips, meaning that Kobelek was likely getting a mouthful of it. After fifteen seconds she relaxes, flopping down on top of you and breaking the kiss to pant at the air. Kobelek leans back up, his muzzle and a bit of his face covered in Dawyn's juices which he sticks his tongue out to start collecting."There you go, you got to experience the same thing your marefriend did." Kobelek comments to Dawyn with a smile.Dawyn doesn't respond, instead continuing to pant on top of you.What do you do?
>>40493953Leaning our head down we nuzzle against the worn out mare before looking up to kobelek with a soft grin.I think she really enjoyed it~ might have even fallen in love with your tongue~ Mm... Has showing two surface mare's a very pleasant time boosted your confidence? By how much, I wonder...As we say this we lower our fore hooves sliding them around either side of our teats, squishing them together and slightly raising Dawyn's hips up. Our left hoof brushes the side of our slightly gaped slit, pulling to the side and fully exposing the pink interior walls.Our right finds Dawyn's soaked vent and presses down parting her horizontal entrance open and letting some of her dragoness honey fall into our own parted pussy.The cleavage between the two needy holes glistened as the dragonesses cum rolled down the large mounds, wobbling slightly as we shifted and shook our hips slowly.I think it's our turn to pay back the favor isn't it Kobelek? I'm curious, what else would you like to explore~?
>>40493953"Thank you, Kobelek. Suffice to say, your tonguework is remarkable. So, how was it? You haven't lost your voice, have you?"Directing the latter part towards the dragonmare using our body as a bed, we release her horns, sliding our hooves along her back as we kiss at her neck lovingly.Lifting one of her wings, we use the motion of tucking it in manually to obscure Kobelek's line of sight as we steal a quick glance between his legs.
>>40494047>>40494097Leaning your head down, you nuzzle your cheek against the worn out Dawyn before looking up at Kobelek with a soft grin."I think she really enjoyed it~, might have even fallen in love with your tongue~. Suffice to say, your tongue work is remarkable. Has showing two surface mare's a very pleasant time boosted your confidence?""You know what, I think it has a bit." He smiles back.You don't respond immediately as you turn your attention to Dawyn."So, how was it? You haven't lost your voice, have you?""I-It's... stronger t-than that!" She pants.You release her horns at this, sliding your hooves along her back to kiss at her neck lovingly. In the same motion you lift one of her wings, using the motion of tucking it in manually after they got splayed out at her sides to obscure Kobelek's line of sight as you steal a glance between his legs. His length was still straight out, it's glowing having increased in intensity once more though still not enough that it hurts your eyes to look at it. You take this chance to also respond to him."Really? by how much, I wonder..."As you say this join your forehooves together again and bring them on either side of your teats, squishing them together to raise Dawyn's hips up. Your left hoof brushes the side of your slightly gaped slit, pulling it to the side to fully expose it's pink interior walls.Meanwhile, your right hoof finds Dawyn's soaked vent and presses down to part her horizontal slit open and letting some of her Dragoness honey fall on and into your own parted pussy for Kobelek to see. The squished cleavage between the two of you glistens in the light as the Dragoness' cum also rolls down your large mounds, wobbling a bit as you shift and shake your hips slowly."I think it's our turn to pay back the favor, isn't it Kobelek? I'm curious, what else would you like to explore~?"Dawyn comes to life a bit on top of you, turning her head around to give Kobelek a seductive look. She lowers her tail down and intertwines it with your own tail, moving both of your tails to the right so Kobelek has a completely unobstructed view."Certainly spoiled for choice here," She tells him, "You might have to choose wisely~.""I... definitely am," He nods after a moment, no longer sounding as nervous as he once was, "I would love to explore both, but there is only one of me sadly. Hmm..."He hums and starts rubbing his chin in thought with a thoughtful expression. He then smiles as he gets an idea."Actually..."He lights up his horn and quickly disappears and reappears in a burst of green light. When it dissipates what you see standing there is... Kobelek. You are a bit perplexed by the fact that he used his magic to disguise himself but made no physical changes, that is until you look back down between his legs and pause.He was now sporting two cocks, both looking like his original and both sporting no differences from each other. He smiles and trots over to the two of you.Cont.
>>40494305"There we are~. Haven't done this before so we'll see how this goes."He then mounts himself on top of Dawyn where shortly after feel his bottom length press up against your entrance. Dawyn also jumps a bit, having felt the same thing you did."...Y-You're both fine with this, right?" Kobelek asks, his nervousness beginning to show again.What do you do?
>>40494313To answer him we lift our left fore hoof and lower it a little farther, bending our back a bit to reach, we take hold of his shaft and start stroking it with his tip nestled against our lips....It'd be just awful to tease you so much and leave you unsatisfied. And~ I have to know what this feels like.
>>40494313We consider his words in faux contemplation, looking Dawyn with an answer already in mind. Closing our eyes, we shift our hips up and down, allowing ourself to engage in some truly unacademic thoughts as the star shaped prick glides across our slit, knowing our marefriend is experiencing much the same attop our teats coaxing a wink and a growing flare of lust that we nurture. Changing our vertical motion to horizontal so it runs along her sensitive vent instead, we open our eyes and silently probe her for her answer, to ensure she is just as eager.(Once we have our answer) Our hooves come down, one on each of their flanks."I believe you can sense our emphatic approval, Kobelek. The bigger question is, can you handle you handle two mares at once. Shall we find out, stud~?"
>>40494432>>40494463You consider his words in faux contemplation, looking over at Dawyn with an answer in mind already. Closing your eyes, you shift your hips up and down, allowing the star shaped prick to glide across your slit, knowing that Dawyn is experiencing the same atop your teats you change your vertical motion to a horizontal motion so that it starts to run along her sensitive vent instead. She flexes her claws and then responds."We wouldn't be doing this if we didn't want it." Dawyn replies simply.With her answer you lower your left forehoof further, having to bend your back a bit to reach, but you take hold of his shaft and begin to stroke it."It'd be just awful to tease you so much and leave you unsatisfied," You tell him, "And~ I have to know what it feels like.""J-Just making sure."He then shuffles a bit against the two of you and presses his cock up against you. Even with a hoof holding your slit open slightly and Dawyn doing the same for herself he struggles a bit to press in, the star shaped flaps resisting a bit in his attempt to slide in."G-Give me a sec..."He shuffles back a tiny bit and after a few seconds he softly thrusts forward. This is enough as you feel your walls part and are hit by a wave of pleasure. The same thing happens to Dawyn above you, her eyes widening and a soft moan leaving her lips."F-Fuck~..."It already felt different. The flaps were holding up your walls a bit along with the bumps that were inside, and as he slowly presses in further you begin to feel the spine rub up against the top of your wall.What do you do?
>>40494771A little moan leaves our own lips, raising up our head we start nibbling on one of Dawyn's horns. Between a lick along the tip of it we look to Kobelek still rubbing his rod.Greedy, I like it~
>>40494771We inhale sharply, biting our lip to hold back a moan against the rather, many pronged attack. Even still, we sympathize with Dawyn's sentiment."A-agreed..."With the 5 prongs pressing quite provoctively against the walls of our snug marehood, our body responds semi consciously in kind, tightening it's grip on his tip a little more until they start to bend/give a little. This doesn't help with the more subtle 'attackers', like the bumps rubbing our lips as they're parted, or the barbs brushing lightly past our clit, even as it hides away.Tilting our head, we try to see between ourself and Dawyn, checking for any sign of illumination through our skin, even knowing he probably isn't deep enough, the thought along quite enticing.

Stopping for the night.Have a good night or day!
>Gael stood in the garage late on a winter night, fidgeting anxiously on the ice cold concrete, dreading what the next few minutes or hours could hold>'Relax, Mom isn't an idiot, she just made a little potion mistake... She is very lucky I've got mega into potions and got my brewing license, for reasons... Luna damnit, why tonight though?'>As if on cue, a pair of wings could be heard just outside, followed by squeak as two hooves came down in an unsteady landing, though before Gael could ponder, Mom hurriedly made her way inside, closing and locking the door behind her, puffing her breath from the chilly flight over>At a glance, nothing looked too off about Mom, aside from the archaic gown that covered massive portions of her body completely>Funnily enough, Gael could've sworn Glory Star had vowed to never wear that dress until 'it suited her', yet she also apparently loved when Gabriel had gifted it to her, it being some sort of Griffonian tradition Gael hadn't really dug into>Before the budding alchemist could say anything, the pegasus mare was already walking over with a smile, wincing at the cold every other steps>"Hey, hon... You look good, have you been working out?">"Th-thanks? A little with Wint-">Mom closed the distance, hugging her daughter (who froze), being a little surprised when her muzzle came to rest under the griffon's beak, rather than above, though less so after her snout twitched>"... Are you wearing cologne?">"I-">"Right, sorry, clearly I'm interrupting your night, so I'll get out of your feathers as quick as possible. Pretty clever though. Me and my friends used to do the same when we went clubbing, a little cologne to keep stallions away. Problem with sharing it though, ponies might mistake you for being in a herd, for better or for worse. Gabriel didn't fall for that trick~...">Mom tittered, a distant gaze signaling that her thoughts weren't remotely pure, though she had the sense to look sheepish before moving on>"Your father and I like to, celebrate on a particular day each year, to commemorate a small miracle some years ago. I wanted to surprise him with a little blend of potions, a transformation potion and a, 'stimulant' potion. I may have added a few ingredients...">Gael should've been paying more attention as Mom read off a spice rack of (almost entirely alchemically inert) ingredients, but something about Mom was off, her gait for one, though something was drawing Gael to investigate further>Before that though, a sheepishly muttered word cut through the night, breaking the spell on Gael briefly as >The young griff's expression shifted from distracted contemplation to horrified realization as the word, and the intent behind her potion usage, sunk in>"C-catnip?">"Y-yeah. Look, we're both grown mares, so it's probably best if I just show you.">"Wai-"
>>40495912>Glory Star was too quick, lifting the hem of her dress, revealing her shapely rump... except it wasn't Mom's rump: in place of her equine derriere was a powerful set of hen haunches, shuffling between her paws on the cool floor and swaying her flanks as her kitty drooled, the slight tint of catnip's chlorophyll green in her coat highlighting where the hen ended and the mare began, with a scent just as confusing to match it all>A bouquet that Gael had been assailed with at point blank, tail and beak only inches apart>...>"So, how's it look?... G-">Glory Star was startled when a Griffon Cock pounced on her, years of 'training' telling her immediately that, despite being smaller than her Gabriel, almost twinkish by comparison, there was no mistaking him for a hen, not when his red hot pecker was grinding against her cunny, stiffer than iron>It took only another moment for her to figure out who it was>"So that wasn't cologne, was it~?">The Griffon Stud hooted lazily, too inexperienced and 'nipped out to penetrate on the first go, but quite enthusiastic about teasing the fertile 'hen', no doubt having prepared for a long night with someone else>Not that she needed teasing: she'd already been thinking about Griffon Cock for the last few days, just not this one, and her half altered body was sending a whole slew of signals she was still trying to process>Not to mention how affectionate he was, seeing as she hadn't given him a firm and immediate rejection, nipping at the base of her ear, a weakpoint that Gael had no right in knowing>She could toss him off, and perhaps she should, but the thought of hurting her child in the ensuing tussle was anguish on her alchemically elevated maternal instincts>That, and she knew every part of her heat addled brain screaming for her to submit would cry out for the opposite once she had the upper hoof, and he wasn't ready for that>"... Tell you what. We continue, and if you knock me up, your 'sister' is gonna have to carry a clutch from Daddy dearest~, that sound fair?">She didn't have to wait or wonder about what he thought, she could feel it in her loins: part of him REALLY liked that idea>She'd known the risks though, even if she hadn't anticipated this exactly, and had been on birth control for a while in preparation for all this>... She just had to hope her transformation hadn't given her an entirely new wombBit of a contrivance, but had a follow up thought:In walks Gabriel, looking for her mate for their little holiday, having worked up the courage to drink some Switcheroo, leading to some very conflicting feelings about the Cock mounting her mate. Possibly something fun relating to her power and the season?
>>40495912>>40495916This is fun, nice work anon. Pretty hot idea actually with the changed rear half and everything.
>>40495955Thanks! Remembered there was a character once with a similar make up, but was thoroughly disappointed with how irrelevant that fact was over all. And after rereading a certain series of green text, I decided to make up for that disappointment.That, and I wanted to see if I could misdirect the reader a little without it being too obvious (ie Gael being male)
>>40495998That half and half character I don't even remember at all, I'm glad it gave you inspiration though because this is great. I'm glad I'm not the only one who every so often goes back to reread some of those greens.I did actually think at first you were going for that Gael had just had, or her mom was interrupting an encounter with Winter or Nickle, and Glory was getting a whiff of the stallion who'd just stuffed her little birdy.It was a real good bait and switch, the switch turned out to be even more fun then what I had thought.
>>40496029Character was in Space Bug: Hunter(?) (can't remember the exact name of the series, but it was a spinoff/sequel of Space Bug by Space Bug, which copied/shared a setting with Space Horse by Space Horse. So, not a Pluto quest, to my knowledge.)Was more trying to hint she figured Nocty and Gael had plans, based on the fact that she couldn't recognize the enticing scent as Nickle or Winter, so it "must" be cologne.Also pictured/wanted to describe Gael being perched on her ass, paw claws barely digging into Mom's feline ass while her newly prehensile tail slips up between his legs, right beside his sack, only to be tangled up and tugged by his tail.But I wasn't entirely sure on the size difference/practicality. What did you think the switch was going to be, that she had been stuffed and plugged minutes before, or that Nickle or Winter were testing out some new 'camo' potion?And there's always something appealing about revisiting what could be/could've been and what has happened so far.
>>40494841>>40494950You inhale sharply, biting your lip as a moan leaves through them against the many pronged attack. Even still, you sympathize with Dawyn's sentiment."A-Agreed..."You raise your head up and start nibbling on one of Dawyn's horns, getting a soft sigh and a shiver from her. Between a lick along the tip of her horn you look over at Kobelek, your hoof still rubbing his rod."Greedy, I like it~.""C-Can't leave one of you wanting!"You stifle another moan as the five flaps press provoctively against the walls of your snug marehood, your body responds semi-consciously in kind to him, tightening it's grip on the tip until the flaps start to give. This doesn't help with the other attackers, the bumps rubbing your lips as they're parted open further, the barbs and spine brushing past your clit even as it tries to hide away.Lifting your head again and tilting it a bit, you try to see if there is any sign of illumination through your skin. You couldn't see any, but he probably wasn't deep enough.You and Dawyn moan again as he gives a forceful thrust forward into the two of you, his cock slipping an inch further into you. He quickly gets stuck again, but he just starts thrusting lightly into the two of you to push in this time. With each thrust back you feel the spines catch a bit against the roof of your inner walls, sending pleasure up through you. Dawyn gets a similar experience from the looks of it, her limbs going stiff as her back arches up and her mouth hangs open."Haaaah~! T-Those- Ah~!"She loses her words as he pulls back again, her head flopping down next to you as she looks up at you."I-It, ah~, f-feeeels great, r-right?"What do you do?
>>40497195We shakily nod our head panting just a little as we shudder.I was... A touch con-concerned that it'd be painful on the backstroke but I couldn't have been happier to be wrong~!Lifting our fore hooves up pulling them away from their prior engagements we reach up and grab Dawyn's sides, after a moment we push her back, rolling her over our squishy teats acting as a pivot point we bury her down onto Kobelek's shaft, pulling her back again we start using her like a toy to pleasure the bug.
>>40497195"I, oooo~"Our timing is poor, beginning to speak as Kobelek draws back, making some near senseless guttural noise as the retreating bumps and spines practically drag a stream of our marecum from our lips. We clutch Dawyn as our marehood ripples around Kobelek, seemingly not content with our incomplete seal on his unique tip, squeezing briefly tighter in waves, as testing the waters."Mmm, most, unusual, and all the, better for it."We grin up at Kobelek, checking to make sure he both us and her.(Assuming he gets stuck again, and isn't quick enough about getting unstuck)We carefully maneuver a hindleg between his, intentionally running a hoof near the softer chitin at his base before hooking his rump/one of his hindlegs, and pressing him deeper~
>>40497307>>40497478"I, ooooo~!"Your timing is poor, beginning to speak just as Kobelek draws back, making you release a near senseless guttural noise as the retreating bumps and spines drag out a stream of your marecum from your lips. You clutch Dawyn as your marehood then ripples around Kobelek, seemingly not content with your incomplete seal on his unique tip, squeezing briefly tighter in waves like it's testing the waters. You eventually nod up at her shakily, speaking up at her between pants."I was... A touch con-concerned that It'd be painful on the backstroke, but I couldn't have been happier to be wrong~!""I-It feels, wonderful~!" She agrees.You grin up at Kobelek, checking to make sure he could hear both you and her. His blush and his thrusts picking up their pace tells you that he was very much hearing your praises.Lifting your forehooves up and pulling them away from their prior engagements you grab Dawyn's sides, her smile turning a bit confused when you push her back, your squishy teats almost acting as pivot points as she rolls over them and you bury her down onto Kobelek's shaft. Her confused expression turns surprised and is then taken by pleasure as Kobelek starts to thrust deep into her as a result. You pull her back again as you start using her like a toy to pleasure the bug above her."S-Silver, y-you don't- Aaah~!"She tries to speak but her words get lost once again. As a result of you pushing Dawyn deeper onto Kobelek he starts to thrust into you faster and deeper. Deep enough that you could feel him just barely press up against the door to your womb each time.What do you do?
>>40497568Loud long and drawn out moans leave our lips each time he taps our womb, rocking our hips a little we squeeze Dawyn harder and starts pushing the dragon mare back faster and harder.This is... Incredible~! Mm... Changelings are going to be very popular above ground.
>>40497626Ya know, That could be why they were driven away. Changeling studs claiming all of the mares.
>>40497675The duchess's daughter had her heart broken by a changeling stud dipping. War.
>>40497568Even as our hooves grasping Dawyn shake with pleasure, the shifting of fur and scales across our teats, not to mention the Changeling rod spreading our walls in a previously unimaginable manner, stealing words from our lips, our mind still wonders.'What must Changeling mares be like to handle, this, let alone their adaptability? How different are their wombs to accommodate eggs? If both his tools are functional, I suppose I'll have to ensure he has incentive to give enough for both of us.'"Mm, I don't, need him to, rut you, us, like an exotic toy, but I, want him to~"Saying that, we jostle our hips, lifting Dawyn and ourself to grind against numerous sensitive bumps as he draws back, stars dancing in our eyes as we're momentarily stunned, watching our bellies and his shaft for the glow.
>>40497626>>40497675>>40497699>>40497851Even as your hooves grasping Dawyn shake with pleasure, the shifting of fur and scales across your teats, not to mention the Changeling rod spreading your walls in a previously unimaginable manner, forcing out loud, long, and drawn out moans from you each time he taps your womb, your mind still wonders.'What must Changeling mares be like to handle, this, let along their adaptability? How different are their wombs to accommodate eggs? If both his tools are functional, I suppose I'll have to ensure he has incentive to give enough for both of us.'"This is... incredible~! Mmm... Changelings are going to be very popular above ground," You manage to declare, "I don't, need him to, rut you, us, like an exotic toy, but I, want him to~!"Saying this, you jostle your hips, lifting Dawyn and yourself to grind up against numerous different sensitive bumps as he draws back, stars dancing in your eyes as you're momentarily stunned afterwards. You still fight away the stars and squeeze Dawyn harder to push her back against him faster and harder."Ngh~, ah~, S-Silv-ah~!"Unable to do anything against the two of you, Dawyn does the only thing she can do: bite down on your neck and ride out the pleasure, her eyes rolling back and her lashing tail wrapping around Kobelek's waist.Kobelek continues to go harder and faster against her which means he was doing the same to you. His tip keeps ramming against your gates again and again, more stars forming in your eyes until-"AAAAH~!"A loud moan comes out of you faster than you could stop it, his tip punching into your womb causing your vision to almost be overtaken by little stars. You try to blink them away but a new one appears as he thrusts into your womb, the flaps around his tip catching your cervix as he pulls back and then thrusts forward again. You roll your head a bit during this to find a blue glowing coming from your belly, a similar glow coming from Dawyn's belly as well.You could feel yourself getting close and you were sure that Dawyn is close as well, and from Kobelek's thrusting he's getting close as well.What do you do?
Look who just became a fucking Necromancer!
>>40498536Lifting a hoof from Dawyn we move it up and instead grab her by the horn holding her against our throat moaning as we feel her teeth press into our skin. Our muzzle hangs open slightly as we try to catch a breath that's knocked out of us with every thrust, our soaked walls clenching and rippling around his shaft as the spines scratch so good against them.K-kobelek~ D... D-don't keep us waiting~ make us y-yours. I want... n-need, to feel it. Show tw-two surfffface mares whaaah~ what you've g-got~!Barely getting the words out through out moans we reach up our other hoof grabbing tightly onto his head and lead him in for a kiss.If he dares to try pull out mumble the clumsy curse under our breath.
>>40498536'They do serve a function! I can't miss this.'With stars dancing in our eyes and Dawyn locked on to our neck, we simply try to keep watch with wide eyes and bright red cheeks, the possble chance to mire directly witness two wombs being filled almost as exciting as our impending climax itself, fighting the urge to simply lay back and take it, to the point that we can't resist smiling.With his tip no longer spreading spreading our walls and drawing their attention, they clamp down on the rest of his length, snug as ever. Our cervix similarly springs its tight trap, ensuring that no matter how he tugs or pulls, he's not slipping away that easily, (especially since he's deep enough that our clit is brushing against Dawyn's?)4chan decided not to show me this update until half an hour after the fact, and then things crashed just as I started typing.>>40498609Nice! I assume it was at least as hard as you expected?>>40498719Seconding!
Stopping for the night. I want to make another post but it's been a long week and I'm tired.Have a good night or day!Woke up early and spent several hours on an assignment only for the instructor to announce today that he's cancelling the assignment because everyone has too much work to do at this point in the semester. Don't have to worry about the assignment anymore and he gave everyone full marks on it, but it's still several hours gone.
>>40498763[Spoiler]Oddly, no. Well, I suppose that's thanks to the preparation I've done. The only bosses that gave me trouble was Omega Mk.II and Neo Shinryu.Boss 1: Gil TurtleGil Turtle is the same Gil Turtle in the main game. Wasn't much of a challenge with Mighty Guard and Blizaga.Boss 2: Grand Aevis & 2 Dark ElementalsThis was a sloppy fight. The Dark Elementals use White Wind to heal their allies. With Aevis Killers, I used Rapid fire which performs an attack on a random enemy 4 times per weapon in 1 turn. This was a mistake because the Dark Elementals will regenerate periodically. Using a Cannoneer, I used Slowblast by combining Turtle Shells with Cannon Balls. This was crucial for my success. Other than that, I kept forgetting what items to mix using the Chemist ability, and even killed a teammate... Twice!Boss 3: ArcheodemonThis was the easiest fight oddly enough. I just summoned Bahamut, and Mimic the action. I didn't even need to heal.Archeodemon has a counter where it would cast Death on itself when attacked by a physical attack, so spamming Bahamut was going to be my best option.Boss 4: Omega Mk.IIFuuuuuuuucckk. This took me 12 attempts. I intended to post the battle in the previous thread, but didn't get around to it. I'll post it on the third post. (I know it's hard to put in text, but this battle was under a minute. Omega Mk.II runs on a billion SSD with a million gigs of RAM overcloked 1000 times!)Cont.[/spoiler]
>>40499183Well the first post didn't spoiler, so I guess I don't see the point of keeping it up. Boss 5: Neo ShinryuThis one took me several attempts as well. The guide I used says defeating it involves mostly luck. I noticed it annihilates my party in the course of two moves! I had to take a step back and find Ice Shields. Ice Shields absorb Ice attacks, and I gathered 4 of them. Bartz and Faris had Cannoneer's Combine, and Chemist's Mix. Lenna had Hide and Revive. Hide prevents the user from being targeted by attacks, and Revive, well, revives everyone in one turn. Krile had Combine, but also Blue Magic for Mighty Guard and White Wind.So the battle involved Lenna hiding while the other three suffer though battle, shooting Neo Shinryu with Dragonshots (Cannonball and Dragonfang). Lenna will only show back up if the party is down, then go back to hiding. Oh, Lenna has all defensive equipment that allowed her to block attacks 93% of the time. Neo Shinryu has an invincible form on top of its vulnerable form, so attacks only hit 50% of the time, and allows it to attack 4 times a turn! Halfway through the battle, It'll cast mute on everyone including itself, so magic is unusable and does around 7000 damage 4 times a turn with shell active! I won by the skin of my teeth!Boss 6: GuardianThe only difficult part here is hoping it doesn't cast Encircle. Otherwise it was an easy fight only using Zaninage. Zaninage did 7600 damage a turn. I would have used Rapid fire, but it also has 3 other pieces that are targetable. I was maxed out in cash before the fight, and didn't gain any more after, so you can see how expensive the fight was in the pic. Which I also happen to forget putting on the first post. Final Boss: EnuoEnuo has two invincible forms, but they're only targetable by Rapid Fire. And to make matters worse, Zaninage doesn't work on him! Thankfully, he doesn't absorb elemental attacks, so Finisher, a move that has a 50% chance to work and it's a guaranteed 9999 damage, Works! I didn't know this at the time, so most of the battle was keeping Bartz alive and doing chip damage to Enuo. It turns out he's a Heavy type, not human, so shooting Shurikens out of a cannon wasn't a good strategy. Oddly enough, he wasn't too difficult and I defeated him first try!I was sucked out of his realm, and there lied the crystal with my prize!
>>40499195Battle against Omega Mk.II:Equipment:Everyone: Rainbow Dress (prevents confusion), Ribbon (prevents every other status effect besides Zombie)Herms Sandals (Permanent Haste)Faris, Krile, Lenna: Flame Shield (absorbs fire) and any weaponBartz: Chicken Knife, GladiusPrep: I noticed on my last attempts, the Apocalypse blade and Ragnarok weren't working with Spellblade. So I decided maybe just using knives instead. Krile and Faris had blue Magic and Mix, and Lenna had White Magic and Time Magic. Bartz had Spellblade and Rapid Fire.Battle Music:https://youtu.be/kDTdOO2zOAk?si=zAvH5_fS1sdvkp18Battle:Omega Mk.II starts with Barrier Shift, which changes its weakness!Faris starts off the battle with Mighty Guard, a blue spell that casts Shell, Protect, and Float!Omega Mk.II retaliates by using Wave Cannon, which cuts everyone's HP in half, and induces Sap, which makes everyone slowly drain HP!Krile goes next, Mixing a Potion and Dragon Fang, increasing Bartz's LV by 20! (Now LV 77)Omega Mk.II uses Atomic Ray, A fire based attack!Everyone with a flame shield absorbed the damage, but Bartz took 1400 damage!Bartz enchants his knives with Flare!Omega Mk.II uses Delta Attack! Because of the ribbon, it only does 200 damage to Krile and prevents her from turning to stone!Lenna uses the Time spell Quick which gives her an additional 2 turns!Lenna Uses Curaga on Bartz, restoring his health to full!Lenna uses Reflect on herself!Omega Mk.II uses Wave Cannon! Faris expertly blocks the attack, but everyone else's HP was cut in half!Krile Mixes two Dark Matters together to use Shadow Flare on Omega Mk.II!Omega Mk.II counters with an Encircle on Lenna, removing her from battle!Omega Mk.II counters a second time with Rocket Punch, dealing 500 damage!Before Faris can make a move, it uses Wave Cannon on everyone! Krile goes down!Faris uses White Wind, healing around 2500 HP to herself and Bartz!Bartz attacks with Rapid Fire, attacking it 8 times, but Flare doesn't activate! The Gladius doing 5500 per hit, and the Chicken Knife doing 7500 per hit!Omega Mk.II Counters by restoring its HP to full!Omega Mk.II targets Faris. All single targeting spells and attacks will direct to Faris!Faris mixes a Potion and Phoenix Down to Fully revive Krile!Omega Mk.II used Wave Cannon, cutting everyone's HP in half!Bartz Uses Rapid Fire doing the same damage as before!Do to Faris being Targeted, Omega Mk.II heals Faris to full health!Omega Mk.II uses Rainbow Wind on Faris, which does nothing thanks to the ribbon.Krile Combines a Cannon Ball with a Turtle Shell, casting slow on Omega Mk II!Bartz lets loose another Rapid Fire Attack, killing the mechanical beast!Victory!Obtained the Force Shield, the strongest shield in the game!
>>40499200>Krile Combines a Cannon Ball with a Turtle Shell, casting slow on Omega Mk II!Oops, I think I mixed that up with a previous attempt. I used antidote and Turtle Shell which creates Turtle Soup and Halves Defense and Magic Defense. I don't think it worked though, but I don't really remember.
>>40498719>>40498763'They do serve a function! I can't miss this.'Stars still dancing in your eyes, you lift a hoof from Dawyn and use it to grab her by a horn, holding her against your throat and moaning as you feel her teeth press into your skin. Your muzzle hangs open slightly as you try to catch a breath that's knocked out of you with every single thrust. You could only watch with wide eyes and bright red cheeks, the possible chance to directly witness two wombs being filled almost was exciting as your impending climax itself, fighting the urge to lay back and take it, to the point that you can't resist smiling.With his tip no longer spreading your walls and drawing their attention, they clamp down on the rest of the his length. Your cervix similarly springs it's tight trap, ensuring that no matter how much he tugs or pulls, he's not slipping away easily."K-Kobelek~, d... d-don't keep us waiting~, make us y-yours. I want... n-need, to feel it. Show tw-two surffffface mares whaaaah~, what you've g-got~!"You barely get the words out through your moans. Reaching up with your other hoof, you grab his head with it and pull him down for a kiss. His lips meet yours and he wastes no time letting his tongue pop in and messily meet yours.The kiss was just in time for both of you as with one final thrusts he hilts inside both of you, his little flaps flaring inside of you and clamping down hard on your cervix as he unleashes a load into you. It felt a lot like the one Hannu gave you but you could also feel something that feels like a bunch of little hard beads hitting the inside of your womb with his cum.You try to analyze the feeling as much as you could, but it doesn't last long as the pleasure of another orgasm hits you. Dawyn gets her own shortly after, moaning loudly into her neck and pressing her slit down as much as she could to yours, enough that you could feel her clit winking against your own.What do you do?
>>40501401Feeling his flaps lock down and pulse on our sensitive ring, unleashing a slurry of semen and almost certain some eggs, our hindlegs do what they can to mimic the action, locking his hips deep in ourself and Dawyn. Practically screaming into Kobelek's mouth, the overwhelming pleasure and familiar sensations taking us back to the last time we felt our womb being filled by a certain buck, as well as the dream we had of Hannu knocking us up while Dawyn used us as a bed, familiar enough to make our heart sing with joy, love, and lust, pouring out of us in waves, along with the appreciation and lust aimed more directly at Kobelek for what he's doing to us, what he's making us feel, (all persisting long into our afterglow?). A relatively slow drip of nectar leaks past the tight grip of our greedy marehood, wholly unwilling to part with it's prize yet, though winking in celebration with it more draconic 'cousin' above.Of course, as some of our faculties return to us, we give Kobelek a more proper kiss, following with a peck on Dawyn's neck, pressing our pink pearl back against hers as we tilt our head, peeking through one open eye with a lustful studiousness at what Kobelek's efforts have wrought .A groan of not quite pain leaves our lips as both Dawyn and Kobelek's weight settles more on our chaffed teats.>>40499200Will admit that some of this stuff is flying over my head (more so due to lack of familiarity with the terms, I'm following along with the concepts well enough). Definitely something to be proud of though.And over here, I'm struggling to decide which game I want to put the time into to finishing the story/working on the grind, lol. PMD ExpO'Skies, Tears of the Kingdom, Warframe, Bravely Default, Rogue Legacy, Dead Space, Castlevania SOTN Randomizer, fucking Angband of all things, and many more that have slipped my mind, including the PR of FFI-VI and Theia - The Crimson Empire.
>>40501401We attempt to consider the sensation of the pearls beating against the back of our womb but our mind blanks as the earth shattering climax rocks us. Or walls clench like a vice then relax only to clamp down again over and over in waves as we grind our hips up against Dawyn's.>>40501604Seconding!
>>40501604>>40502124You attempt to consider the sensation of the pearls beating against the back of your womb but your mind completely blanks at feeling his flaps lock down and pulse on your sensitive ring, unleashing a slurry of semen and almost certainly some eggs, your hind legs do what they can to mimic the action, locking his hips deep in yourself and Dawyn. Your walls clench around him like a vice then relax only to repeat over and over again in waves as you practically scream into Kobelek's mouth, the overwhelming pleasure and familiar sensations taking you back to the last time you felt your womb being filled by a certain buck, as well as the dream you had of Hannu knocking you up while Dawyn used you as a bed, all familiar enough to make your heart sing with joy, love, and lust, pouring out of you in waves along with the appreciation and lust aimed more directly as Kobelek for what he's doing to you, what he's making you feel. A relatively slow drip of nectar leaks past the tight grip of your greedy marehood, wholly unwilling to part with it's prize yet, though winking in celebration with it's more draconic 'cousin' above.The three of you eventually come down though which also brings the return of of your faculties. You pull back a bit to give the panting Kobelek a proper kiss followed by a peck to Dawyn's neck, pressing your pink pearl back against her which gets her moving a bit as she unlatches herself from your neck, giving the bite marks she left a little kiss. As she does you tilt your head to see what Kobelek's efforts have wrought for both of you.You could feel a fullness in your belly which you could also see as both of your bellies have grown slightly from the amount Kobelek pumped into both of you, and both of your bellies now sported a soft blue glow."Fuck~! K-Kobelek, that was incredible," Dawyn compliments him tiredly, "Y-You should feel proud, you gave b-both of us a good time.""T-Thank you," He pants, looking down at both of you, "Both of you did great as well. Certainly gave me a wonderful experience."What do you do?
>>40502346"Dawyn is correct, you did wonderfully Kobelek~. Though you shouldn't under sell yourself, Wyn. I..."Relaxing our limbs, we find them to be quite limp for the moment, feeling like jelly."I may need a bit before I can walk."Seeing he had enough to comfortably fill two mares, and the fact that it's so self evident with the glow, we can't help biting our lip, even if most of our lust is sapped by this point. Passively, we monitor the flaps on his length and the beads in our womb, feeling the latter settling and waiting for the former to relax. Nuzzling up against Dawyn, we try directing both their attention that way, nodding towards it. Partially for their reactions, and partially to gauge whether Changeling mares glow similarly (based on Kobelek's reaction), have surmised they do not earlier."I believe I felt more than a few spawn in your ejaculate. Perhaps a crash course in Changeling reproduction is due? I'd like to know whether that many are actually viable within a Changeling womb, that is, do they all become eggs that are carried to term? As well as their viability in non-Changeling wombs... And that curious reaction your, phallus, had to emotion: why does it glow?"Remembering we're technically in a somewhat public place, we glance around with soul sight for any voyeurs.Don't need straight answer, just figured Luscinia would ask.
>>40502346Sliding down our hooves we move them down to our now rounder belly, gently poking into it and rubbing the blue glowing gut with a little shiver.'How long will we be glowing? Everyone will know what we did. That... Is an oddly enticing thought.'Looking up to Kobelek our clit pops out again forcing a soft gasp out of out throat.I'm... A-Aaah~ glad... That we didn't disappoint. I think it was the right choice to stay, I'm going to need some time in the water to relax.'Those ridged nods... Did he fill my... Both of our wombs with his spawn? Is it possible that ponies and changelings are compatible, I'm not in heat but does a changeling even need the partner to be compatible? Did I just have us bred and made his personal incubators?'Our tunnel walls ripple and squeeze along the changelings shaft as our mind rushes with possibilities milking whatever else it can get from him deep into our womb.Hah... I have a few questions Kobelek while we have you stuck here, also later I will need you to pose for a few sketches, I have some many notes to take~>>40502454Seconding. I think you're right, she'd want to know.
>>40502454>>40502536"I'm... A-Aaah~, glad... t-that we didn't dsappoint. I think it was the right choice to stay, I'm going to need some time in the water to relax," You say, "Though you shouldn't undersell yourself, Wyn. I..."You relax your limbs, finding them to be quite limp for the moment, a lot like they were made out of jelly."I may need a bit before I can walk."Dawyn giggles above you and nuzzles against you."Same."Seeing he had enough to comfortably fill two mares, and the fact it's so self evident with the glow, you can't help but bite your lip, even if most of your lust has been sapped by this point. Passively, you monitor the flaps on his lengths and the beads in your womb, feeling the latter settle as you wait for the former to relax. You return the nuzzle from Dawyn, trying to direct both their attention that way with your eyes which they both catch. Dawyn looks down and studies your bellies for a moment before smiling, Kobelek looks down who looks a bit surprised at the sight. You manage to lift a hoof up and gently poke into it and rub the blue glowing gut with a small shiver.'How long will we be glowing? Everyone will know what we did. That... is an oddly enticing thought.'You pause as you turn to a different thought.'Those ridged nods... Did he fill my... both our wombs with his spawn? Is it possible that Ponies and Changelings are compatible, I'm not in heat but does a Changeling even need the partner to be compatible? Did I just have us bred and made his personal incubators?'Your tunnel walls ripple and squeeze around his shaft as your mind rushes with these thoughts, milking whatever else it can get from him deep into your womb."Hah... I have a few questions Kobelek while we're stuck here, also later I need you to pose for a few sketches, I have so many notes to take~.""S-Sure, it's the least I can do.""I believe I felt more than a few spawn in your ejaculate. Perhaps a crash course in Changeling reproduction is due," You ask, "I'd like to know whether that many are actually viable within a Changeling womb, that is, do they all become eggs that are carried to term? As well as their viability in non-Changeling wombs... And that curious reaction your, phallus, had to emotion: why does it glow?"After your first question you watch his expression change to nervousness and almost to fear. It's evident enough that Dawyn notices, giving the stallion a concerned look."Are you alright, Kobelek?""I... forgot about that," He responds, still looking nervous, "T-Those are eggs, b-but they aren't all a single grub t-they... kinda coalesce over time and become one egg. I-I'm pretty it glows to attract attention and... I-I'm not sure if the eggs can survive in non-Changelings, i-it isn't something that was ever covered."As he continues you notice that he begins to get more and more nervous.What do you do?
>>40503006Hmm... 'That's an odd system. I wonder why and how it functions like that.'We might be the first to know for quite a while. Shift our hips slightly we gasp slightly and slowly start to pull ourselves off of him.If either of us do end up carrying a little grub of yours we will try to let you know, don't worry about it too much though.
>>40503006We kiss him before he can become too wrapped up in his own thoughts and emotions, grabbing one of Dawyn's claws to reassure her as well."If they are viable, it's an oversight on all our parts, not just yours. We're not in heat, if Changelings have a similar cycle, and aren't ovulating, plus our bodies likely lack whatever component Changeling mares have, assuming you don't ejaculate fully fertilized eggs and they aren't simply incubators..."We pause to consider the thought, the concept feeling more possible as we consider their highly adaptive nature and their ability to subsist on the immaterial nutrition of emotion.'The mare wouldn't be lending any genetics directly. In which case, it would probably mirror asexual reproduction, where the spawn is a near clone of their progenitor. The merging of eggs could provide that, but that also requires the mare produces eggs as well. If that is the case, us not being in heat would take care of that.'"If they are simply incubators of a sort, I'd be curious about how genetics in Changelings work. Most pressingly though, they can't have truly settled in yet, not for a little while yet. Failing that, Changeling made contraception spell surely exist."Motivated by a little adrenaline, we sit up part way, resting our back against the edge of the pool and taking care with how we're still connected to both Kobelek and Dawyn and trying to help them sit comfortably.
>>40503120>>40503135'That's an odd system. I wonder why and how it functions like that.'"We might be the first to know for quite a while."Still, you lean up and kiss him before he could become too wrapped up in his own thoughts, grabbing one of Dawyn's claws to reassure her as well even if she just looked unsure."That's if they're viable, it's an oversight on all our parts, not just yours. We're not in heat, if Changelings have a similar cycle, and aren't ovulating, plus our bodies likely lack whatever component Changeling mares have, assuming you don't ejaculate fully fertilized eggs and they aren't simply incubators..."You pause to consider that thought for a moment, the concept feeling more possible as you consider Changeling's highly adaptive nature and their ability to subsist on what you thought to be the immaterial nutrition of emotion.'The mare wouldn't be lending any genetics directly.

Failing that, Changeling made contraception spells surely exist," You say, "If either of us do end up carrying a little grub of yours we will try to let you know, don't worry about it too much though."As you say this you sit up part way, moving to rest your back against the edge of the pool and taking care since you were still connected to Kobelek. This movement does make him slide out and Dawyn follows you a moment later."Neither of us are in heat so it should be fine, though I can't help but be slightly curious," Dawyn comments, sliding next to you, "You've never heard of Changelings reproducing with non-Changelings?""Maybe some of the Hives that are friendlier with other races have," He replies, "Still, it's not something that I've ever heard of happening."He looks down at the pool water and then back at the two of you, slowly sliding over."Still, I-I'm sorry, it completely slipped my mind."What do you do?
>>40503385Moving over closer to him we press our lips to his neck.I accept your apology, it's not like we really gave you a chance to think with the upper head. I'm not as bothered as you might think. 'Would I start lactating? Changeling's don't need milk but if that does happen I wonder if my body would know the difference.'
>>40503385We'll probably end up stuffed with them for a time before either they come out on their own or we extract them. But I don't think anything more will come from it... Though, just in case perhaps we should go back to the nursery to ask for some tips for raising changelings~?We chuckle softly and recline in the water, lifting a hoof we bring it to our tender agape slit and start to gently wash it in the spring water.It is one more thing to study about changelings regardless. I have been thinking about the possibility of having a family on and off, though this isn't exactly how I had thought it would happen. So even on the unlikely chance this bares fruit it would hardly be completely unwelcome.It does seem to be bothering you though, worried about your sister teasing you for breeding two mares you just met~?
>>40503385"Your apology is accepted and this is a learning experience for all of us. Now the question would be how long will it be before we induce labor? Since grubs mature in eggs outside of a womb, I assume the process is quick?"
>>40503385"Apology accepted. Having said that, we still need to figure out clean up and clean out. It was quite clear what we would be doing when we left, so returning with glowing bellies wouldn't actually reveal anything, but an effort should still be made. The best solution I can think of immediately is scooping it out with your magic."Before we try that though, we look at the steady stream of glowing fluid already leaking from our marehood and experimentally press down on our belly.
>>40505003Thank you! To be honest, I wasn't sure about the whole birthing fetal eggs thing. Luscinia is an alleged orphan, and if those eggs do have spawn, I can see her have a lot of guilt leaving a child of hers behind.This was my first idea, suggesting Kolebek to use his magic, either telekinesis, or changing his tongue to be extra long or modifying his hoof and leg.Of course, we could try and push them out too.
>>40505082Brain is a little loopy, so these are some thoughts on paper, not necessarily directly what you're talking about here.>if those eggs do have spawnI know incubation for Changeling eggs is definitely rather short compared to traditional pregnancy, but to be honest, I really can't reconcile these eggs as being far enough along to actually become an orphan of Luscinia's, while Changelings as a whole also being comfortable with the concept of masturbation. It also begs the question of why Changeling males wouldn't simply carry them to term if they can reach such an advanced stage, transforming to effectively self impregnate. I can see her being worried about abandoning a foal of hers, while also being attracted to the fantasy of carrying many eggs to term, seeing as they're two loosely tangential but different things/feelings.The tongue did cross my mind as well, but there would definitely need to be some method beyond just pressing on our belly, unless we were certain we'd felt all the beads leave. I'd propose using soul sight to locate all of them inside us, but we probably wouldn't see anything, as if we did, that could be a whole can of worms.
>>40503470>>40504013>>40504046>>40505003>>40505082>>40505149You move closer to him and press your lips up against his neck."Your apology is accepted and this is a learning experience for all of us, it's not like we gave you a chance to think with your upper head," You say, "We'll probably end up stuffed with them for a time before either they come out on their own or we extract them, but I think don't think anything more will come from it...

So even on the unlikely chance this bares fruit it would hardly be completely unwelcome."'Would I start lactating? Changelings don't need milk but if it does happen I wonder if my body would know the difference.'"Now, the question would be how long it is until we induce labor? Since grubs mature in eggs outside the womb, I assume the process is quick?""Two to four months is usually the amount of time." He nods nervously."Having said that, we still need to figure out clean up and clean out. It was quite clear what we would be doing when we left, so returning with glowing bellies wouldn't actually reveal anything, but an effort should be made," You say, "The best solution I can think of immediately is scooping it out with your magic.""Is that possible to do, Kobelek?" Dawyn asks, looking over at him."P-Probably? It might not be the easiest thing to do though," He replies, "I-I can still try, if you both of you want to do that."As he looks between the two of you, you study him for a moment."It does seem to be bothering you though, worried about your sister teasing you for breeding two mares you just met~?""T-That's a part of it," He nods, "I-It's more like... like...""You haven't thought about grubs before?" Dawyn finishes for him."Yeah, that. I don't know how well I would do at raising grubs, or how often I would see them considering my position as a guard."What do you do?
>>40505575"Sometimes unexpected things happen. Hopefully this provides some motivation for investigating and preparing for future events without driving you away from the possibility of grubs. In a way though, you probably qualify as one of the foremost experts in Changeling crossbreeding within your Hive. For now though, let's see about getting getting these, proto eggs? Out of us."
>>40505575Perhaps that is something you should think about then. However I would, in all likelihood be raising the grub on my own. For the most part anyway. Other then informing you of it and visiting when I'm in the area we do live very different lives and I don't believe either of us wants to drop all of it to follow around the other.This does seem to be having the greatest effect on you, perhaps I'm still a touch loopy from the pleasure but I would like to find out if it's even possible, maybe we can check with a library if there is one and see if there are any records of this happening? There might be nothing to worry about, we hardly need to panic trying to drag the eggs out in either case.>>40505638I don't think we need to jump right to doing that. Honestly at the very least I want to show off our glowing bellies a little and see the reactions to it.
>>40505664I somewhat disagree with the first paragraph. Obviously Luscinia wouldn't part with her child(ren) easily, but circumstances would be more favorable past the laying for them to be with their hive, (cold weather, a lack of peers/hivemind connection, potentially being targeted by people on the surface). There is a degree of certainty that doesn't quite gel either, given we've never openly thought of it, and haven't discussed it with either of them, but expressing an interest in raising a child does fit.I do agree that we don't have to rush getting the eggs out if he doesn't think he can do so confidently/safely, (in which case the part below is somewhat irrelevant.)It is tempting to walk about with glowing bellies, but I think indulging in exhibitionism is second to dealing with the more pressing concern (though we could just remove the eggs and leave the fluid, since it isn't hurting anything), and worrying about Kobelek's reputation. I'd make an argument about consent (of the onlookers), but if we kept it to the bath, it should be an issue.
>>40505575"This does seem to affect you a great deal, and with the life of an adventure, I can't guarantee the safety of the eggs or grubs. Do you know if the hospital can do anything?"
>>40505716The glowing belly solution is simple, just have Kelebek get our cloaks.
>>40505716>I somewhat disagree with the first paragraph. Obviously Luscinia wouldn't part with her child(ren) easily, but circumstances would be more favorable past the laying for them to be with their hive, (cold weather, a lack of peers/hivemind connection, potentially being targeted by people on the surface).That's probably fair. I honestly think it'd be a difficult choice for her that she could fall either way on for multiple reasons. I lean to thinking she would end up keeping them with her overall due to wanting the changeling to know who she is unlike how she doesn't know where she came from.I can only imagine Kobelek's reputation is probably already forever changed already, that might be a good or bad thing hard to tell. Probably lends more credit to his tales of dealing the finishing blow to the monster though.I don't think the egg thing is really quite as pressing as it's being made out to be, we should figure out what we're doing before the end of the day but really these eggs probably wouldn't be viable.He doesn't seem comfortible using his magic like that, we can probably fix ourselves of whatever damage he could do though I doubt Dawyn could. If/when we do get the eggs out what would we do with them? >>40505774The glow is something I think we want to be seen.
DnD starting pretty soon.>>40505638>>40505664>>40505716>>40505765>>40505774>>40505817"Perhaps that is something you should think about then. I would, in all likelihood be raising the grub on my own.

>>40506034Mm... Then we'll do that. Rolling back onto our hooves we stand up with water cascading off of us as we rise. Looking over to the door for a few moments before talking again.I think I'll start heading back now, I need to stat writing things down while they are fresh in my mind. Are you both coming with me or are you going to stay here a little while longer?'I could hide the glowing with illusions, but I would like to see what everyone else's reactions are.'We look to Dawyn, using our soul sight on her to check how she's feeling.
>>40506034We wrap a leg around the both of them(?)"Then that's where we'll go. Assuming we don't need to leave immediately, let's just take some time to relax and enjoy each other's company."
>>40506034"We have our destination then, though we could linger for another moment. And I more so meant you were an expert in the 'hooves on' sort of way, not a medical expert."If we're getting up, double check that we aren't leaking.Good luck with D&D, Pluto!
Stopping for the night. Had a fun time with DnD tonight so here is the summary for that: What a Night.The rest of the day is skipped so that everyone meets back at the house, but Naltaal's reuniting with her Dad went over okay and the two are going to meet up again tomorrow. For now, it's late at night and everyone is eating dinner and chatting about their days with each other. When Naltaal and Theo are talking about their day and bring up that they went to the slums she does notice Warren get visibly concerned for a moment. And during dinner Eridis, formerly Aleon but everyone calls him Eridis now after he explained how he met Babel, suddenly runs off in the middle of it and leaves the house entirely to go drinking at a tavern. He gets shitfaced and when he notices Tobwin at the bar, who he and Amafrey are having a friendly competition over who will get his affection first, proceeds to drunkenly spill spaghetti all over the place by falling out of a bar stool and have his pants fall down all in front of Tobwin. Since Eridis has clearly had too much to drink Tobwin agrees to take him back to the house.Meanwhile, back at the house, Theo gets Polya to show off her Komodo Dragon mount to him and Zuly who the latter tries to climb, but thankfully Polya's mount isn't hungry at the moment. Inside, Naltaal has a short talk with Warren about the slums. He didn't like hearing that she went over there because it's a dangerous place with nothing to offer and he doesn't want her going back to the slums unless he's with her. Considering that when Naltaal and Theo went there Theo was immediately pickpocketed and the two nearly started a barfight by simply asking innocuous questions about a flyer asking for an "entertainer", Naltaal agrees and she's also able to gleam from the conversation that Warren doesn't trust exactly trust other people to protect her. When I asked the DM if this included the rest of the group he said no, but I still feel like it's implied to the rest of the group as well, especially after something a little later in the session. After this, since Warren is doing the dishes Naltaal decides to help him with it.After the dishes are done there is a knock at the door to the confusion of everyone in the house. Amafrey answers the door to find a clearly embarrassed Tobwin and a drunk Eridis. After some drunken and sexual comments from Eridis directed at Tobwin, Warren and Naltaal take Eridis inside and over to one of the couches in the living because neither of them thought he would be able to make it up the stairs in the state he's in. Amafrey apologizes to Tobwin and besides the embarrassment he says it's fine, but to 'make sure the Wizard keeps his pants on' before awkwardly leaving.Cont.
>>40507541So everyone heads to bed after this and a drunk Eridis, who gets cold on the couch, decides in his drunken state to summon his mount to fix this issue which completely breaks the supports of the couch he's on. Besides that, everyone has good dreams besides Amafrey and Naltaal. I can't exactly remember Amafrey's dream but it was related to her fortune, and Naltaal's bad dream is about her first few days lost in Ekalas completely alone, scared, and wondering if she'll find a way back.The morning comes and Amafrey is the first to discover the broken couch and Eridis who is trying to tidy himself up. Eridis tries to lie about what happened, but he quickly admits that he summoned his mount and the weight broke the supports. He also declares that, after the whole event last night, he's going to try to change and calm down on his antics starting now. He's tired of making a fool of himself and making a fool of the group by association. The two then try to think of how to try break the news to Naltaal that one of her couches is broken.Which is when Naltaal walks in with some water to help with Eridis' hangover if he has one where she immediately sees the broken couch and isn't pleased at all. Eridis immediately admits to it and promises that he'll pay for the repairs to it which they shake on, though Naltaal still isn't happy with him. He also tells her that he's going to change and, despite not being happy with him now, Naltaal does offer her help if he wants that though he tells her that he wants to try to do it himself.Warren then comes in to see the broken couch and when Eridis tells him that he wants to talk to him Warren just turns around and walks out. Eridis does stop him outside the living room doors and tells the same thing and even starts with 'I know you've only known me as a weirdo'. Warren's reaction is a lot different than Naltaal's.With it just being him and Eridis in the hallway he brings Eridis over to a wall and, while not exactly in a threatening way, he tells Eridis to not embarrass him in front of Tobwin like last night again, reiterates this point by adding Naltaal into it, and then tells him if his antics gets Naltaal in trouble Eridis is very much going to regret it. With Eridis very much unnerved and understanding of his position Warren goes about his morning. Naltaal does get to hear all of this on the other side of the living room door.Cont again.
>>40507608After this, Eridis leaves to find a tailoring shop while the rest discuss the plan for the day. There is a side quest where someone had requested a cadaver, preferably Humanoid but any cadaver would do, and requests that it be legally sourced so the group is going to do that though the problem is trying to find a legally sourced cadaver. There is a stockyard that sells animals so the group could go and ask for a fresh cadaver, Warren also brings up something interesting about a place that could give the group a cadaver, but he doesn't say much past that and what he did say makes it sound like it's in the slums so Naltaal can't go unless she brings Warren along, but he probably has guard work to do, or go behind his back which she would like to try and avoid doing. Amafrey, Theo, and Polya do want to check this lead out first so they tell Naltaal it's fine to sit this one out and Amafrey's Eagle will get her when they want to meet up with her.And that was the session. It wasn't a long session, but there was a lot of details in it. Honestly, I forgot Warren had that side to him and I and the rest of the group enjoyed watching Warren's talk with Eridis play out.Anyway, have a good night!
>>40507621Man, I don't know how you manage to keep that much straight in your head long enough to get it down.Even if it wasn't the longest session it seems like it'll have quite a bit of importance in the future with everything that happened.
>>40510386I've always had a pretty good memory, though it can also be selective considering how often I forget little details in my CYOAs.>>40506113>>40506120>>40506150You wrap a leg around the two of them."Then we have our destination then, though we could linger for another moment assuming we don't need to leave immediately. How about we just take some time to relax and enjoy each other's company.""T-That sounds fine." Kobelek nods."Yeah, we don't need to leave immediately." Dawyn replies."And I more so meant you were an expert in the 'hooves on' sort of way, not a medical expert."The three of you linger in the hot spring for several minutes, enjoying the warm waters that helps soothe the aches from your recent activity. Eventually, you roll onto your hooves and step out of the water."I think I'll start heading back now, I need to start writing things down while they are fresh in my mind," You say, "Are you both coming with me or are you going to stay here a little while longer?"'I could hide the glowing with illusions, but I would like to see what everyone else's reactions are.'As you think this you turn back to Dawyn so that you could hear her answer, finding that her soul is mostly fine but there is a bit of worry in it."I think we've been away long enough." Dawyn agrees, stepping out of the water and letting it cascade down her body."If you two are going I might as well go as well." Kobelek nods, getting out of the water as well.As the two do this you quickly look back at yourself to make sure you aren't leaking. You didn't see any evidence of a leak, but it could just be mixing with the water.What do you do?
>>40510921Moving over to Dawyn we whisper into her ear as we give her a comforting nuzzle.Do you want me to hide the glow for you, and make sure nothing is... Leaking out?If she does, use and illusion to render her stomach how it normally is and move around to clean her up quickly with our tongue before continuing on.Otherwise, stride out of the room with our soul sight on looking at the changelings we pass by.
Stopping for the night. I'll post the summary thing tomorrow.Have a good night or day!
>>40510921We wait for Kolebek and Dawyn to get out of the water. Once out, we give Dawyn a reassuring kiss and nuzzle, telling her everything will be alright."Well, stud. You may not have have been able to convince anyone that you killed the Quyish, but now you can brag about how you pleasured two mares at once."We wrap a leg around him, and gesture Dawyn to do the same."Walk out of here with confidence, and watch everyone feel envious of your grand achievement~"(If I don't make it on time, when they're getting dressed again, I want to suggest Luscinia only wear her cloak, taking advantage of the underground nudist culture.)>>40510955Seconding, though I recalled the illusion spell doesn't effect light level. Maybe it'll make her stomach less green, but the glow would still be apparent, I think. Unrelated news, I just beat the last thing to do on Final Fantasy V Advance. The Cloister of the Dead is a boss gauntlet. Some bosses were beefed up, but it was relatively easy. They did throw in Archeodemon in the middle of it which was a huge curve ball, but I learned using Reflect on it prevents it from casting Death on itself (I forgot to mention last time that Archeodemon is undead, so Death revives it completely.) This does of course means it would cast death on your allies, but it misses the majority of the time. Besides that fight, Rapid Fire was all I needed to use for most battles, and for the others, Necromancer's Dark Arts came in clutch. Hell Wind, Meltdown, Deep Freeze, Dark Flare, Curse, and Doomsday were important spells. The reward for defeating this gauntlet was a metal. Yep. Just a metal. There's nothing else to do in the game besides humiliate Exdeath with my new found power. I could also master every job and grind to LV 99, but that's too much work for no real reward.
>Luscinia blew a grey streaked lock of hair out of her face.>It was the only part of her that showed any sign of aging.>Tanssija was eternally jealous.>Striding down the long road she smiled.>Softly at first, but it grew and grew.>Still despite it her heart panged with pain as she stood before the remains of her masters old burnt down tower.>"Can we, get our break now? These things get heavier everyday I swear.">A masculine voice below her calls out in an exhausted tone.>"Shut up numbskull! We don't get breaks and you're just going to get her to dip her hips again!">Slightly to the male's right a feminine voice rang our full of exasperation.>Looking below her she saw the two, halflinger brother and sister. She'd brought them both back after an ill fated heist had gone wrong.>Each supported one of her magnificent mounds, the hefty weight pressing down onto their backs and spilling over their sides a little.>Their legs shook, the stallions significantly more than the mares.

>>40510921'No towels, so no way to conceal or mitigate leaking past keeping our tails low. Doesn't mean I can't collect some data.'Doing a slow lap of the pool, we adjust to the feeling of our slightly distended stomach swaying with our step, or the slight shifting of beads within the warm, viscous medium, ultimately becoming no more distracting or out of place than our bare teats dragging through the water. After a lap, we shift our (braided?) tail aside for Dawyn to check, given the difficulty in checking ourself."How much of a mess is there?">>40511002Morning, Pluto!>>40511264Blue glow, not green, I'm pretty sure. Not that it's a huge difference.And congrats!>>40507621Been meaning to comment, but have been wrapped up in things a lot lately. It's a fun read though all the same.
>>40511876Nice! Had to check though: original opening post of this quest has Shetlanders listed as dwarves, "the shortest of the pony races", though Hobbits and Dwarves are 2' to 4' and 5' on average respectively, and with their stocky disposition, it's definitely still a compliment.Feel like they'd somehow convince her to let them use her body as a bed and her teats as pillows (or perhaps the around, where she convinced them instead). That, and they both probably into bug teats on bigger: the brother more visibly so, but the sister wouldn't have humored him otherwise, unless Luscinia picked up a taste for very expensive support wear.Would be curious if soul bound servants could have fetishes imposed on them/gain an appreciation for following orders/a specific order, due to it connecting to their soul. Lusting for teats as big as they are that is buried in their souls would be strange, but kinda hot.not technically related, but after reading the opening post again, I got curious:>Hannu would be the first to admit he was terrified, probably more terrified than he'd ever been>He thought he'd known fear when he'd learned his sister had been 'discovered trespassing' by the Council and secreted her away to the Paavola's dungeon>No, that had been sorrow and sadness, having quickly accepted that she was already in custody, and he would just have to see her free again, by any means necessary>He went to her immediately, the obvious bait in hindsight, but he couldn't resist, even if he'd known>It was after he'd sent the guards away that SHE appeared>A boar sow, somehow, garbed in a paltry cloak and leather armor, her expression piercing yet neutral, all the marks of an assassin, yet a single one of her limbs could crush him completely>Funny, Hannu figured if he was to be slain by a boar, it would be one that was grizzled, slobbering, and covered in scars, not one that was immaculately groomed, the only scar being an small but odd scar on her eye, making her seem mysterious, perhaps even cu->Hannu cut the thought short, stepping between Tanssija and the sow just as she started to charge, lifting Hannu with a deft tilt of her head, pinning him to the bars and knocking the breath from his lungs>He stared wide eyed into his killer's, a most striking jade staring back as he caught his breath, heart hammering away when he felt her doing the same, rushes of hot and snuffling against his belly fur with tusks on either side of him, her lips practically kissing his->Was this a punishment from the gods, for his failures? F-for his peculiar tastes? Was she going to, ravish him?>He couldn't help reminiscing with burning cheeks, about how this resembled a few books he'd rea->HANNU fainted!
>>40512446>Be Uloth, first and last of your name, apprentice of Necromancer Comet Star, and not-yet-Breaker-of-Hips>You'd expected to find Tanssija alone when you'd stepped in after the guards left>What you hadn't expected was to find the fairest buck in the land, wreathed in gold and silks, like a prince charming to your knightess-in-leather-armor>Remembering your mission as he went to call for help, you did what came naturally: you charged, taking great care with your tusks as you knocked the wind from him, and tried to come up with a plan...>You couldn't, not while losing yourself in his eyes, the immaculate coat and enchanting scent coaxing you only to breath deeply, floundering until you tossed out the first vaguely romantic quote to come to mind>"Do you think love can bloom on the battlefield?>At least, that's what you would've said, if he hadn't fainted the moment something hot and slightly earthy poked your lips...>...>Tanssija was conflicted: on one hoof, she was overjoyed to see Uloth coming to her rescue with only a single scar to show for it (so far), and to see her large and lonely friend develop a crush on her brother was heartwarming, but on the other, the emotional tension of the situation was going to kill her long before the Council ever could
>>40510955>>40511264>>40512403'No towels, so no way to conceal or mitigate leaking past keeping our tails low. Doesn't mean I can't collect some data.'As you wait for Kobelek and Dawyn to get out of the spring you make a slow lap around the pool, trying to adjust to the feeling of your slightly distended stomach swaying with each step, or the very slight shifting of beads within the warm, viscous medium, inside of you ultimately becoming no more distracting or out of place than your bare teats dragging through the water. After you finish the lap and the two get out of the water you stop to give Dawyn a reassuring nuzzle and then kiss."Hey, everything is going to be alright," You tell her, "Do you want me to hide the glow for you, and make sure nothing is... leaking out?""Yes please." She nods.You cast an illusion on her stomach to make it look how it normally is. You then go around and check to find that she was leaking a bit, but it's nothing that your tongue can't clean up for her. When you're done you trot in front of her and turn around, shifting your braided tail around for her to check."How much of a mess is there?""...Quite a bit," She replies, her hot breath going over your backside, "Shouldn't take much to clean though."You then feel her tongue start lapping at your lower lips. After two minutes she pulls away and licks her lips."There, you should be good."With that, you then turn to the blushing Kobelek."Well, stud. You may not have been able to convince anyone you killed the Quyish, but now you can brag about how you pleasured two surface mares at once."You then wrap a leg around him to his surprise, getting Dawyn to do the same."Walk out of here with confidence, and watch everyone feel envious of your grand achievement~!""A-Alright..."The two of you then lead him out. You don't run into any Changelings in the halls, just when you pass by the hot springs on the way to the main one do you run into any. Most Changelings were too busy doing their own thing to pay attention to the three of you, but the ones that do you sense surprise, disbelief, some embarrassment, and from one Changeling stallion you get a bit of jealousy.You all return to the main hot spring where you find Xornet, Tanssija, and Smoke in the same places that you left them in. Though Smoke had apparently gotten brave enough to take off his armor and clothing and get into the hot spring with Tanssija, sitting next to her near the edge of the spring. As you approach the three look over and after a moment the three share the look of complete surprised with a blush, Xornet's reaction is a little more severe as she stares between you and Kobelek."K-Kobelek, you really..."What do you do?
>>40513186Lifting up our hoof from Kobelek's shoulders we lower it to feel over our belly again.Did he really what~? Seems you're having a little trouble, take your time.Parting from the other two we walk over to the edge of the water getting nice and close. Switching our attention from the changeling mare we look over to our stallion friend.Glad to see you're enjoying the water Smoke, I'm somewhat disappointed I missed the chance to be here for it but it's good to see you got comfortable enough with the idea.. Leaning over we whisper to Tanssija.Do you mind if I borrow the mirror?
>>40513186Our cheeks are naturally a little rosy, between the various emotions we've witness from onlookers, and our friends' reaction, but our confidence doesn't waver at this point. Rubbing Kobelek's side for a moment, we make our way over to our things, checking how dry we are and checking for our cloak."Capable as he is, Xornet, I don't believe he is owed all the credit. I believe our intentions were clear enough when we left, even if we hadn't the foresight to bring something to clean up with... unless I'm missing something? Apologies for interrupting."We dip our head apologetically.>>40513282Curious about the intentions behind the mirror. And Smoke may not be too comfortable with that, even if it's true (nice that he got in the water and shame we missed it)
>>40513305Seconding.Well the idea with the mirror is that we do have to inform Hannu of what happened. Though really we can do that at any time if we're working on the idea the eggs are going to be removed we do absolutely need to show him before that happens.
>>40513186We look over to Dawyn and subtly suggest her to kiss him on the cheek. If she gets the memo, we kiss his other cheek at the same time. We then use our free hoof to feel his chest."We found the stallion that was checking us out, and he was quite the charmer. How could we have resist such a handsome stud~"
>>40513353Counterpoint: we'd be calling our lover/fwb, the King of a nation, for the fourth time today, after discussing and taking out an army level threat, to show him we got a glowy cum belly, in public.Not saying he wouldn't find it hot, but I figure we could wait until we're somewhere a little more private, I suppose? And it feels like an abuse of hi time/power. I think we can faithfully recreate the illusion with a Disguise spell if I'm honest, if the opportunity to do it privately does pass.We really should see if he's asked that doe out yet though (if we haven't asked recently)Not to mention Kobelek might feel a bit used if we were to do that immediately.
>>40513406I wasn't saying anything about doing it in public, somewhere more private would definitely have been the idea. That said, I did not know it would be the forth time calling him on this day, I agree with you giving it some more thought. It'll just be something to bring up whenever we next call him not a reason to call him on it's own and an illusion will do just fine to demonstrate.>>40513186>>40513282(me)Ignore theses lines from my post please.>Leaning over we whisper to Tanssija.>Do you mind if I borrow the mirror?
>>40513282>>40513305>>40513353>>40513378>>40513406>>40513440Your cheeks are naturally a little rosy, between the various emotions you've witnessed onlookers and your friend's reactions, but your confidence doesn't waver at all. You look over at Dawyn and subtly suggest to her to kiss him on the cheek by leaning to him slightly and pursing your lips for a moment. She takes a moment to understand, but she soon nods and the two of you kiss his cheeks at the same time, getting his blush to explode as you feel his chest."We found the stallion that was checking us out, and he was quite the charmer. How could we have resisted such a handsome stud~," You say, "Capable as he is, Xornet, I don't believe his is owed all the credit. I believe our intentions were clear enough when we left, even if he hadn't the foresight to bring something to clean up with... unless I'm missing something? Apologies for interrupting, take your time."You dip your head apologetically before separating from him to make sure your things are dry. They are, you even find your cloak which you put on for now. You then trot over to your stallion friend, switching your attention to him."Glad to see you're enjoying the water, Smoke, I'm somewhat disappointed I missed the chance to be here for it but it's good to see you got comfortable enough with the idea.""I-It took a bit of convincing from Tanssija," He admits, blushing a bit as you approach, "I'm here now though, and the water is quite nice.""Glad you decided to get in," Tanssija smiles, "...I, uh, assume the glowing is from..."She trails off a bit and looks over at Kobelek and Xornet, the two of them seemingly having a silent conversation with each other. Dawyn had separated to move over to her own stuff, already writing things down in her notebook.What do you do?
>>40513745'I'll have to compare notes with her after my own are done.'Grabbing our own journal and some writing supplies we move over finding the nearest dry spot next to Tanssija and lay down on our side belly facing the curious doe.Yes. Yes it is. We start noting down Kobelek's features, recalling the softer chitin around where his cock emerged along with the internal (or lack of testicles?) as well as his features and ability to make a fully functional copy.'He said they glowed to attract attention from potential mates right? Or was it just attention in general? Either way it definitely works.'I'll only go into detail if you want, but it certainly was an experience. It turns out changelings are strange, the males produce the eggs, hundreds of them or more and then once they are... Inserted they will coalesce into one. We'll be leaving for a while to take care of that.
>>40513745We can't help keeping a curious eye on both the Changeling siblings' souls, and our marefriend as she writes, feeling compelled to do the same in due time. We also watch Dawyn's belly, confirming that the illusion is holding, as well as enjoying the secret knowledge that she's carrying just as much as us, mentally checking for if there is any spill leaking down our hindleg."Indeed, glowing seems to be a trend. Truthfully, the walk over was, 'enlightening'."Mildly entertained by our own pun, we give both Smoke and Tanssija a brief once over, partially because haven't seen the unicorn actually naked before, as we take his blush to mean he's caught a good look at us, and to ensure we haven't actually interrupted anything in approaching."You look good together, happy. I do hope you know though, Smoke, that this means solo baths in your future are becoming less and less likely. Though, I suspect Tanssija might acquiesce if you desire to keep your shared bathing from being a public affair.">>40513440My assumption about it being public was incorrect then, though somewhat natural given how direct things can sometimes be.And I'm somewhat assuming it's the fourth time given: we called in the morning to ask about the Quish, he/we called back with information and we formulated a plan, we called him back after we succeeded, and then we entered the Hive, Dawyn on our back as she was still tired/recovering from the fight, thus we haven't slept so far. Eventful day, and I think it could be spun as us missing him/wanting his input at least.>>40513792Seconding!
>>40513745We nod our head."He... gave us some eggs. Apparently changelings don't need a mare in heat. They will eventually merge enough to develop an egg that can produce a grub embrio."We place a hoof over our stomach and rub it."It's, not the right time to take care of a child, so we're going to see if the hospital can safely extract the eggs. You two can relax and continue with the tour without us until we're taken care of."
>>40513892>gave usProbably overthinking this, but we disguised Dawyn's belly, so we don't need to say us necessarily.
>>40513892>Apparently changelings don't need a mare in heat. They will eventually merge enough to develop an egg that can produce a grub embrio.We don't know if this is true or not yet.Also it was less about it being the right time or not to raise a child and more that Kobelek wasn't a big fan of the idea.
>>40513915I didn't say it would make a grub, but it makes an egg for the grub. Kolebek did mention the eggs will merge, and we're smart enough to guess what for.>>40513901We can leave Dawyn out of this I suppose, but she is coming with us regardless (to be a supportive girlfriend in the lying sense.)
>>40513792>>40513813>>40513892>>40513901>>40513915You can't help but keep a curious eye on both the sibling's souls, and your marefriend as she writes, feeling compelled to do the same thing in due time. Kobelek was a mix of nervousness and embarrassment while Xornet seemed mostly confused with the remainder being a mix of various emotions.'I'll have to compare notes with her after my own are done.'You quickly run back to grab your own writing supplies and then return to Tanssija and Smoke."Yes. Yes it is," You reply simply, "He... gave me some eggs. Apparently Changelings don't need a mare in heat. The males produce the eggs, hundreds of them or more and then once they are... inserted they will coalesce into one.""He... huh," Smoke grunts in surprise, "Y-You're not planning on keeping them, right? None of us will be able to keep them safe considering our jobs.""We'll be leaving for a while to take care of that," You nod as you start to write in your journal, noting down the softer chitin around his cock along with the likely internal testicles and the ability to make a functional copy, "We're going to see if the hospital can safely extract the eggs. You two can relax and continue with the tour without us until I'm taken care of.""Good." Smoke nods.As you write you give the two brief once over, mostly because you haven't seen Smoke actually naked before, having kept himself quite modest. His body wasn't covered in any scars or markings and he was quite muscular for a Unicorn. You suppose it is a given though having been raised on a farm and then spending most of the day walking around in heavy armor. You decide to move on after this, taking his blush to meant that he has caught a good look at you."You look good together, happy," You comment, "I do hope you know though, Smoke, that this means solo baths in your future are becoming less and less likely. Though, I suspect Tanssija might acquiesce if you desire to keep your shared bathing from being a public affair.""I already talked about this with Tanssija while the three of you were away and this is a special occasion. I'm going to try to keep it a private affair." "And I'm fine with it," Tanssija replies, coming to a stop in her swimming by wrapping her forehooves around his neck in a hug, "He doesn't have to use another public bath with us if he doesn't want to. I'm not going to force him to."What do you do?
>>40514130Ah, shame. It would have been nice to have you wash my back while I washed Tanssija's, but I understand. But it's for the best if it's more comfortable for you.
>>40514130We stop our writing and smile a little, seeing them close being quite heartwarming. We do resume after a moment though."I was teasing, but I'm glad to know you two have come to an agreement. Did we miss anything else of interest?"
>>40514130That's a shame. I would have loved to sneak him into a Mare's bathhouse if given the chance." We say mundanely in a nonchalant manner.
>>40514146>>40514168>>40514174You stop your writing and smile at the two, seeing them close being quite heartwarming. After a moment you resume."Ah, that is a shame. I would have loved to sneak him into a mare's bathhouse to have you wash my back while I wished Tanssija's, but I understand." You say in a mundane, nonchalant manner.You get a slight chuckle from the two before continuing."I am teasing, but I'm glad to know you two have come to an agreement. Did we miss anything else of interest?""A few Changelings did come up to ask questions about us," Tanssija replies, "All mundane stuff like what we eat.""It was kinda nice," Smoke nods, "It was obvious they never interacted with Ponies before so the questions were fairly mundane, but some of them were weird.""One Changeling thought that Unicorns could detach their horns." Tanssija giggles.What do you do?
>>40514313We shoot her a little side eye and smirk. Well, technically they can. It's just getting them back on again that is the problem. I see Smoke thankfully hasn't done a demonstration. Maybe we'll have to ask some weird questions back.
Stopping for the night. I have a summary from yesterday's Spelljammer: Plans in Motion.I forgot to mention last summary from this campaign that Pancake went to a Celestian temple, a god that he worships and a temple he goes to every night, to pray. While praying he gets a visit from an avatar? Aspect? I don't know but he's know talking to Celestian. Pancake decides to ask if he knows where Chum, the Halfling Lycanthrope Dead Space is looking for, and he is told that he is down with two other Lycanthropes.After this, despite it being midnight, he goes to Csilla to tell her about this and the two end up going to Tal'cha because Thri-Kreens don't sleep which is a bit weird to me because Thri-Kreens don't get immunity to magical effects causing sleep despite this and tell her about this development as well. Tal'cha has only been in Bral for a month at this point, but she knows that 'down' is the sewers underneath the city and then the other side of the asteroid Bral is situated on which is used for farming and the housing of low security prisoners. Tal'cha bets that Chum and the two other Lycanthropes are probably in the sewers somewhere.Everyone goes to bed and in the morning Pancake shares this with the others and everyone agrees that it's probably the sewers as well. Neemo found some interesting information as well: Chum was apart of The Scavvers, a criminal gang that had a lot of power over Bral before the monarchy was established, and ran the gang with his two brothers: Bruce and Anchor. After the monarchy was established The Scavvers were cracked down on hard and disbanded after most of the group got captured, but Chum, Bruce, and Anchor were never captured.Meanwhile, Tal'cha meets up with Tik-kat'cha and tells him about the plan to get him away from the pirates. He's on board with it, but he's worried that they are way too strong for us. Regardless, he's with her and for now he's sticking with her so that he can meet Ozamata.Tal'cha and her brother meet up with the others and the group heads off to meet with Hope's family, mostly to pay respects but also to tell them that Siegen wasn't in control. It goes okay and then the group splits again as Tal'cha, Csilla, and her brother go to see Ozamata and the rest of the group stays behind since Tal'cha and Csilla seem to have the best relationship with Ozamata.Cont.
>>40514313"Ah, yes. The day I became an Earth Pony was the day I lost my horn. I've never been the same since.""That's an adorable thought. I'm glad they've asked you two about our diets. I would have informed them about salads having dresses."
>>40514487The three meet with him and meeting is spent hashing out details about the plan with Tik-kat'cha and the pirates. Ozamata does have another job for Dead Space that is off-world so Tal'cha can bring Tik-kat'cha over on the day they leave, he'll hide Tik-kat'cha, and Tal'cha has an alibi of being off-world for when the pirates inevitably decide to go after her when her brother disappears. The pirates are suppose to leave in five days since they have a job for some mysterious employer, so they will hopefully have to give up on finding him. That's about it though and the three leave with that.And that was the session. Still a shitty plan and even the DM told me today that I should think about more details with this plan and I definitely agree with that, especially after he gave me some details about the pirate crew: there is a total of 20 pirates and 6 of them are named, and of those six two are standard melee people, one is an Ogre with a fucking cannon, two know magic and one of those two sounds like a Bard, and finally Captain Ardy himself has a magic scimitar and a gun. Can't face them head on with all that, so they'll need to be outsmarted.Of course, after the session and a day of thinking later do I finally come up with a plan that sounds good in my head, but it's just my head, has a lot of ifs to it, and doesn't account for Tal'cha's charisma score of 10. Dead Space is probably going to go into the sewers to look for the three Lycanthropes before Ozamata's second job so: have Ozamata remove the bracelet from Tik-kat'cha and hide him, rush over to the pirates to tell them that Chum broke the bracelet and took Tik-kat'cha into the sewers to try to ransom him themselves, if they buy it try to get them to bring some of their crew with Dead Space to 'ensure he's brought back', my pick would definitely be the Ogre and one of the magic users, bring them to the sewers and into the fight with the three Lycanthrope brothers to either die to them or kill them as well if they survive to get rid of some of the crew in case a fight breaks out for the next part, when the job is done then return to the pirates and try to use the broken bracelet as evidence that Tik-kat'cha died.That's my fleshed out plan. Still probably shit and I haven't brought it to the group yet or DM yet, but it sounds better. I'm still looking around for ideas, so if you guys have any ideas or better plans I would be happy to hear them.Anyway, goodnight!
>>40512446Ah, oops. I had meant Cyes not shetlanders, I don't know why but I always get confused.

>>40514443>>40514509You shoot her a little side eye and smirk."Ah, yes. The day I became an Earth Pony was the day I lost my horn. I've never been the same since," You say sarcastically, "Well, technically they can. It's just getting them back on again that is the problem. I see Smoke thankfully hasn't done a demonstration. Maybe we'll have to ask some weird questions back.""If I did we would have to find a healer pretty quick," He says, "I'll have to ask if Changelings get more holes in their legs as they grow up.""Still, it's an adorable thought," You say, "I'm glad they asked you two about our diets. I would have informed them about salads having dresses.""Pfft! They would've been so confused!" Tanssija laughs.You stop talking when you notice Kobelek and Xornet's silent conversation end as he trots over, stopping next to you."She, uh, does want us to head over to a hospital soon." He tells you.What do you do?
>>40516326Returning our journal to our bag and putting it on, we speak. "That would be wise. Curious as I am, there are some questions I don't need answered at the moment. Rather, word of mouth would suffice."Giving him a little peck to perk him up."I hope she wasn't too, sisterly?"We ask, uncertain of their conversation, thus the suitability of the word. We also glance around for Dawyn.
>>40516326Is she done berating you? I had figured the jealousy would make it all take longer. Either way I suppose we probably should, though I have to say I might miss the sensation.
>>40516412>>40516509You return your journal to your bag and put it on, nodding as you speak."That would be wise. Curious as I am, there are some questions I don't need answered at the moment. Rather, word of mouth would suffice."You lean over and give him a little peck on the cheek to perk him up. It does work a bit as his mood improves slightly."I hope she wasn't too, sisterly? I had figured the jealousy would make it all take longer.""It wasn't... too bad, just a lot of questions."As he speaks you glance around for Dawyn. She hasn't moved from where she decided to start writing in her journal, but seeing the two of you talk she puts her journal away and trots over.What do you do?
>>40516577We smirk a little."Questions? I'd press you on what sort, but anything that concerns me, I expect Xornet would have asked directly. So, she was only after your perspective on things."We tease slightly before facing Dawyn."Xornet has urged us to check in at the hospital, to get, this, looked at. So, shall we?"We lift our luminescent belly briefly with a hoof before letting it drop.(If we leave, to Xornet, Smoke, and Tanssija)"Enjoy your bath."
>>40516577Perhaps I'll have to go answer some of those questions for her on our return. Otherwise, we have a likely awkward experience to go deal with.
>>40516624>>40516647You smirk a little."Questions? I'd press you on what sort, but anything that concerns me, I expect Xornet would have asked directly. Perhaps I'll have to go answer some of those questions for her on our return."You tease a bit before facing Dawyn."Otherwise, we have a likely awkward experience to go deal with. Shall we?""I'm ready.""You three enjoy your bath."You, Dawyn, and Kobelek then leave, heading back up the stairs to the hive and over to the nearby hospital which happened to be the same hospital that you delivered the Dark Sickness cure to. As the three of you enter you are greeted by a nurse at the front this time."Hello, is there anything I can... do?"She starts to speak but trails off as her eyes look over at you, specifically your blue glowing belly. After a moment she begins to look between the three of you with a blush.What do you do?
>>40516846"I suppose you can already see why we're here."We dispel Dawyn's disguise."It was a lack of foresight from the three of us. Is there a way to safely extract the eggs from our uterus?"
>>40516846Yes there is, and I suspect it's exactly with what you think it is. Lifting a hoof we lightly touch our glowing belly, our cheeks heating up.'Should I be bothered that she knows what we did? I don't really feel bothered, more prideful? Strange...'We have some concerns and I suspect you know what they are. You wouldn't happen to know if the eggs of a changeling male can be viable in something other then a changeling mare would you?If they can, we may be in need of further help.
>>40516846"We don't have an appointment, but we're in a bit of a rush, and my understanding is that this should be addressed sooner rather than later, correct? I don't suppose you have a specialist for..."Our brows furrow a little as we glance between our companions."Fertility would be the opposite of what we're after. Fluid extraction, I suppose? An academic primer on Changeling Reproduction might be appreciated as well, if at all possible."
>>40516907>>40516941>>40516968"Yes there is, and I suspect it's exactly with what you think it is."You lightly touch your glowing belly with a hoof while dispelling Dawyn's disguise to show off her own belly.'Should I be bothered that she knows what we did? I don't really feel bothered, more prideful? Strange...'"We don't have an appointment, but we're in a bit of a rush, and my understanding is that this should be addressed sooner rather than later, correct? I don't suppose you have a specialist for..."Your brows furrow a bit as you glance between your companions, both of them looking embarrassed and sporting a blush."Fertility would be the opposite of what we're after. Fluid extraction, I suppose? You wouldn't happen to know if the eggs of a Changeling male can be viable in something other then a Changeling mare, would you?""L-Let me get the doctor."The Changeling nurse then flies off. She returns two minutes later with the same doctor you saw before. He stops in front of you and glances over the three of you, stopping at Kobelek who he stares at which only fuels his nervousness and embarrassment."...Couldn't keep it in your chitin, huh?" The doctor finally asks."N-No..." He sighs as his horn lights up, his magic enveloping you and Dawyn."Changeling stallions do carry the eggs at first, but they are unfertilized and require insertion in a Changeling mare to be fertilized. You probably felt it, but a Changeling stallion releases hundreds of eggs with their ejaculation which eventually coalesce into one to three fetuses in the female depending on the amount of eggs. As for if they are viable in something other then a Changeling, that is not something I know for sure. There are old legends of Half-Changelings, but those are legends so it isn't confirmed."His magic releases the two of you as he looks over the three of you."They are definitely there and I do have a method to remove them safely if that is what you want."What do you do?
>>40517130"Fascinating, something about the environment of the womb, perhaps a chemical component and the presence of love allows for the fertilization to occur? I'd be curious to know what component allows for the insertion of genetic material from the mare... unless either the eggs or the semen 'Change' to mirror the incubating mother."'If that is the case, Changeling Stallions could potentially provide a solution to infertility, perhaps even...'The odd vision of a magically altered Changeling Stallion impregnating the spirit of a Key Mare and reawakening a lost civilization pops into our head before we shake it away."Are there any Changeling mothers in these legends? And removal would be preferred. Enlightening as all this has been, there is only unnecessary risk in leaving them there.""Also, any accusation leveled against Kobelek is hardly fair: this dance took three consenting partners. Unless, his choice in partners is the problem?"I assume the doc is just ribbing Kobelek a little, but with the sheer shock and regularity of it, it doesn't seem unreasonable for Luscinia to get defensive about it. Though, I kinda believe she'd be almost too naive to jump to speciesism.
>>40517130"So they're infertile. That's certainly good news. That's a fascinating trait."I see Dawyn saying this next line more. "It's like fish, but with the genders reverse."We chew on our mane on that sentiment."If a stallion were to ejaculate if the eggs were still in us, in theory it could be possible to fertilize them."We giggle to ourself."It would be a way for a child to biologically have two dads.""... We should play it safe and have the eggs removed. No offense, Kolebek, but if we were to have fun with another stallion, it would be awkward to explain that their child also belongs to another stallion."(A bit of a messy post. Sorry about that.)
>>40517130‘With how bloated I am it’d have the be three, actually he did split them between us, and I have no idea how large these eggs start as.’Well, as curious as I am to find out if such legends are true and see a pony changeling hybrid if they aren’t then I’d be stuck with a very interesting reading light that I couldn’t do much about.Probably not the healthiest option overall. What is the method of extraction?>>40517202Seconding.
>>40517202>>40517221>>40517229'With how bloated I am it'd have to be three, actually he did split them between us, and I have no idea how large these eggs start as.'"So they're infertile.

Dawyn states."...I never thought of it like that, but I suppose it is close." The doctor shrugs."If a stallion were to ejaculate if the eggs were still in us, in theory it would be possible to fertilize them, correct?" You ask."Yes, that has happened." He nodsYou giggle at this."A way for a child to have two biological dads... Anyway, as curious as I am to find out if such legends are true and see a Pony-Changeling hybrid, it probably isn't the healthiest option overall.

Unless, his choice in partners is the problem?""Don't worry, I'm just giving him a hard time," He shakes his head, "Honestly, he'll probably be the talk of the Hive for a while after this.""So, what's the method of extraction?" Dawyn asks."Right, I'll simply be using magic to teleport them out," He explains, "Neither of you need to move for this, it should only take a second."What do you do?
>>40517397We hold Dawyn's hoof with ours."Okay, we trust you, doctor. Do what you need to do."
>>40517397We raise our brows at this, our eyes sparkling a little.Teleportation? That is some rather high level magic, I would like to see it in action.'Also significantly easier then what I had thought the process was going to be.'
>>40517416>>40517468You raise an eyebrow at this, your eyes sparkling with fascination."Teleportation? That is some rather high level magic, I would like to see it in action."'Also significantly easier then what I had thought the process was going to be.'You move over the short distance to Dawyn and take her hoof in yours."Okay, we trust you, doctor. Do what you need to do.""Whenever you're ready." Dawyn adds."Alright, just stand still..."His horn glows again and his magic surrounds the two of you once more, wrapping around you like a blanket and squeezing a bit around your belly. It continues to squeeze for a few moments until the magic dissipates a few seconds later and you feel your belly get lighter.Looking down at it, it was no longer a little bigger than it should be and the blue glow is gone. Dawyn is the same as you with no blue glow anymore."There, you no longer have to worry about it." The doctor announces.What do you do?
>>40517641Thank you doctor. That settles that worry then. Out of curiosity, where did you teleport the eggs?Also, horny idea incoming, but we could potentially use the idea of our body being egged leading to a boost to our hormones and causing our teats to go into overdrive. If I remember correctly we spoke about some growth before saving the rest for pregnancy, but the latter is probably never going to happen on the road unless Luscinia makes several bad decisions. Just easier to find that growth through another way that isn't something as final as pregnancy.
>>40517641"Thank you, Doctor."We give him a bow."How are the changelings who had Dark Sickness feeling?"
>>40517641‘That was quick.’We feel over our belly a little with a hoof.Thank you for the help. Where did you put the eggs?>>40517698This has been discussed a few times before but it has been a while, having a foal before the end of the story is part of the appeal for a couple people, not sure if they're still here but it's that way for me at least.We never really get to watch or raise the foals as a mare. The story just ends.A boost to the hormones comes with the growing not from just having something in there for twenty minutes. It takes months, maybe if we'd left the eggs in there but with how temporary the stay was I doubt there will be any effect at all. Nothing wrong with the idea, I just like the thought of saving it for something else later.I deleted and reworded this after I reread it, I didn't like how it came off.
>>40517774>We never really get to watch or raise the foals as a mare. The story just ends.Yeah, I have a similar feeling over the appeal and like it, but the issue is there's usually a reason why pregnancy and birth never happens in the middle of a story. Luscinia wouldn't think to get pregnant until she feels its safe to settle down and raise a foal in her life. How would we both roleplay with that sentiment while also intentionally getting her pregnant?
>>40517641"Hmm, I was sort of getting used to the feeling. Thank you, Doctor. This method has a good success rate? I must admit, I'm curious how it distinguished the ejaculate from the mare, or that it has removed a sufficient amount, but that is less important than the fact that it has done so.">>40517798Afternoon, Pluto!>>40515209Been meaning to reply with a continuation, but I've lost the metaphorical thread for the moment. It was a fun read, and oddly cute.>>40518879I feel both sides of this: it would be an interesting concept to explore, but could Luscinia keep adventuring while pregnant/have a baby without settling down? Partial fixes could be pregnancy armor (a la Ivory Stalks) or teleportation/storage tech, to establish a 'mobile' home. Having a cart/caravan that could function as a mobile base/village/portal to a village could be a fun set up, though probably beyond the scope of the setting.
>>40517698>>40517756>>40517774>>40519601"Hmm, I was sort of getting used to the feeling," You comment before giving him a bow, "Thank you, doctor. That settles that worry then. Out of curiosity, where did you teleport the eggs?""Just to the refuse area.""Does this method have a good success rate? I must admit, I'm curious how it distinguished the ejaculate from the mare, or that it has removed a sufficient amount, but that is less important than the fact that it has done so.""It has a great success rate which is why it's used. I got everything out of both of you so neither of you need to worry.""Good... How are the Changelings who had Dark Sickness feeling?""Thanks to you they'll all make it," He replies, "A few of them will need to stay in the hospital for a day, but most of them should be able to leave in a few hours."What do you do?
>>40519812We smile just a little."Good, no more needless loss of life from that Quish then. If there is nothing more, we'll let you get back to work. Thank you again."If the doctor is done, we pull both Dawyn and Kobelek closer to our side.
>>40519812>>40519886This, but also:As we walk back to our friends, we ask Dawyn."So how was your first Stallion, Wyn?"
>>40519812That's good to hear. I believe then, it's time we take our leave, thank you both once again I hope you have a nice night.
>>40519886>>40519966You smile a little at this."Good, no more needless loss of life from that Quyish then. If there is nothing more, we'll let you get back to work. Thank you again.""No problem, and Kobelek.""Y-Yes?""Next time: pull out."Kobelek nods as you and Dawyn move back to him, pulling the two to your side as the three of you then trot out."So how was your first stallion, Wyn?""It felt great," She smiles, "The stuff after made me a bit nervous, but I still had fun.""I was your first?" Kobelek asks, sounding a bit surprised."Yep, and you gave me a good time~."What do you do?
>>40520073Only my third time as well with a male, second time if the same male only counts once. I'm curious, how experienced are you?Before we head back to the others could we stop off at your place Kobelek? I want to get a sketch of you and your equipment.
>>40520073"You were my second time with a male. My first was with a buck, Tanssija's younger brother to be exact. Much Like Xornet, Tanssija pushed me and Hannu together. Is it normal for siblings to encourage the other sibling to date?"
>>40520121>>40520199"Only my third time as well with a male, second time with a male if the same male only counts once," You say, "My first was with a buck, Tanssija's younger brother to be exact. Much like Xornet, Tanssija pushed me and Hannu together. Is it normal for siblings to encourage the other sibling to date?""It's normal for siblings to want to see the other succeed in what they're doing," He says, "Dating is one of them."You nod a bit at this."Before we head back to the others could we stop off at your place, Kobelek," You ask, "I want to get a sketch of you and your equipment. I'm also curious, how experienced are you?""Uh, yeah we can do that," He nods, "Just follow me."For the next few minutes he leads you down several different streets until you stop at a simple, single story, stone building. He moves up to the door and simply opens it, not even using a key to unlock it."Hope you don't mind the mess."You trot inside and look around. Like the outside it is fairly simple on the inside. The house was split off into four sections: three of them a connected kitchen, bedroom, and living room. The forth was a section you couldn't see given that it was behind a closed door, but it is probably a bathroom. It was decorated simply and despite what he said it was clean though there are three plates placed in random areas.What do you do?
>>40520487Looking around for a moment at his home with mild interest at the unique housing we then turn to the bug.It's fine it's not that messy I've seen worse.'Master would get so caught up in things, if he didn't have his servants I imagine it'd end up far worse.'Though, for next time you invite some mares back here it'd likely be best to have it clean first. Why don't you sit on the edge of the bed and spread your hind legs, do you need help getting erect or can you do that yourself?
>>40520487'Plates? Kitchen? Do they cook love? Is it served with other food?'"Usually a mess involves much more clutter."We use minor illusion to fill the room with tables with vials of potions, wine glasses with wine, books stacked from the floor up to the table, dozens of notes strewed about on the walls and table, and a half eaten loaf of bread with bread crumbs.Looking at this felt a little like home. A small wave of sadness fills us, but we quickly catch ourself and regain our composure."Now it's a mess. I am a little curious why you have a kitchen and plates. Do you mix love with other foods?"
>>40520551>>40520602You look around at his home with mild interest.'Plates? Kitchen? Do they cook love? Is it served with other food?'"It's fine it's not that messy. I've seen worse, usually a mess involves much more clutter."You cast Minor Illusion to fill the room up with table with vials of potions, wine glasses, books stacked from the floor up to the table, dozens of notes strewn about on the walls and table, and a half eaten loaf of bread with bread crumbs scattered around it. Looking at this illusion you made you realize it hits way too close to home, closely resembling Master's study from the first few years that you were with him. 'Master would get so caught up in things, if he didn't have his servants I imagine it'd end up far worse.'A small wave of sadness hits you at this, but you quickly catch yourself and regain your composure."Now it's a mess," You declare before dispelling it, "Next time you invite some mares over it'd likely be best to have clean first.""I know, I just rarely have guests over.""I am a little curious why you have a kitchen and plates. Do you mix love with other foods?""You can actually, it goes great with Oyster Mushrooms and Toad meat, but of course there is plenty to mix it with," He says before shaking his head, "A-Anyway, you're here to draw me, right?""Yes. Why don't you sit on the edge of the bed and spread your hind legs, do you need help getting erect or can you do that yourself?""I can do it, just may take a minute."He trots over to his bed and does as you say: sitting down on the edge and spreading his hind legs open."...I know it's not really my business, but you are alright, Silver," He asks as you trot over, "When you casted that illusion spell you got sad for a moment."'Right, Changelings can detect emotions.' You think to yourself.What do you do?
>>40520979Give him a little reassuring smile."A, recent loss. Of a paternal figure and mentor, thus my home as well, in a way. I've received some closure in my adventures between then and now, along with new friends, and hope for an old one. Time hasn't yet stopped me from yearning though, perhaps a consequence of being raised and taught by a hermit... what of your history, your grubhood? Please don't feel obligated to share, though i expect what is innocuous to you might be extraordinary to ourselves."
>>40520979...It's a long story, not really one I want to tell in detail but I did somewhat bring it on myself. I had someone I was quite close to end up losing their life not too long ago, I just accidentally reminded myself of them when I conjured up that image.It's something I'm still working through. That said, I've had the time to get some closure so it isn't that painful.'That, and seeing and talking to him really helped.'Shaking our head we get out our journal and writing supplies and get ready. I won't go into it further, mostly because it isn't relevant. We pause for a few moments.'Right now really isn't when I'd want to be thinking of Master, fortunately there is a way to distract myself.'Moving closer to the ling we put a hoof on his thigh then lean our head in close to between his legs, nuzzling and snuffling around for a moment against his chitin we find the softer spot in the chitin then press our tongue our against it lapping then licking wiggling our tongue past and through the barrier until we worm it into where his member is hiding.
>>40520979"I'm fine. It just brought back some memories is all."We stare down between his legs. Is there any sign of a sheath hiding his flare?We sit on our haunches and lift a teat up our mouth, circling our tongue around the nipple while watching the phallus for the moment it springs to life.
>>40521039>>40521043>>40521094You give him a small, reassuring smile."A, recent loss. It's... a long story, not really one I want to tell in detail but I did somewhat bring it on myself. I had someone I was quite close to end up losing their life not too long ago, I just accidentally reminded myself of them when I conjured up that image," You say, "It's something I'm still working through. That said, I've received some closure in my adventures between then and now, along with new friends, and hope for an old one. Time hasn't stopped me from yearning though, perhaps a consequence of being raised and taught by a hermit."You shake your head and get out your journal and writing supplies to get ready."I won't go into it further, mostly because it isn't relevant.""Sorry for bringing it up," He apologizes quickly, "I didn't mean to open up a wound like that."You give him a motion that says it's fine as you stare down between his length. You didn't see any signs of a sheath hiding his flare, just a circular area of chitin that was obviously softer then the chitin surrounding it and with a small opening in the middle of it.'Right now really isn't when I'd want to be thinking of Master, fortunately there is a way to distract myself.'You sit down on your haunches in front of him and lift a teat to your mouth, circling your tongue around the nipple while watching to see if it springs to life. You very much have his attention doing this as he stares with wide eyes down at you, but all it does is spread the opening up further. You let go of your teat to place a hoof on his thigh and then lean your head in between his legs, nuzzling and snuffling around against his chitin before pressing your tongue against the softer spot of chitin, wiggling your tongue past it until you worm it into where his member his hiding.This gets a stronger reaction. His glowing phallus immediately springs up, quickly stiffening in a race to reach it's full length. As you wait you look up at him."What of your history, your grubhood? Please don't feel obligated to share, though I expect what is innocuous to you might be extraordinary to ourselves.""W-Well... my grubhood was pretty normal, for a Changeling. I was the grub who always got into trouble with my parents, higher authorities, and from just doing dumb stuff."As he talks his length reaches it's full extent in front of you.What do you do?
>>40521319Pulling back we go back to our stuff to start getting out sketches done and notes taken.Dumb stuff? Mind sharing the details?
>>40521319Making sure it's nice and stiff, we give the shaft a long lick from the base to the tip.'Interesting. It almost feels like a vagina until the penis springs out.'Satisfied, we grab our journal and lie down, using our breasts as a lectern as we start drawing."Care to elaborate?"
>Be Gael.>A deep red blush spread across your face as you drooled around the 'gag' in your beak.>No limits truth or dare had been a mistake.>Your claws and paws were tied together, every wiggle made them seem tighter then they really were.>Taking a breath fur and feathers brushed up against one another leaving your underside tingling.>The day had been hard, from the moment you woke up your limbs had been wrapped around Winters barrel but you'd stuck through. >The stallions sack and sheath grinding into your nares left each stolen breath laden with his musk.>All you'd eaten was a stead stream of pre and large ropes of cum that left your poor belly all to overfilled.>"It's nice to see you again Winter, come in, we just finished dinner and you can join us.">You could probably handle all of that if he hadn't gone to your parents house.>He was slowly thrusting his hips into you working himself in with a little more gusto when Glory star spoke. >The Ever present throbbing of his cock drowned out the sound of your own heartbeat, the consistent rhythm lost in his overpowering neediness.>The meal played out your folks unaware of their daughters rough throat swabbing meters away hidden by a cheap potion.>Nor did they notice as you reached your limit spreading your honey out over the floor as the stallion above you stuffed your gut for the second time since he sat down.
>>40521899>Gabriel hugged his mate with a wing and a claw after the stallion left, something about Winter and knowing his daughter was in good hooves leaving him feeling quite affectionate, yet competitive in an odd way>"Nice of Winter to visit, shame that Gael couldn't find the time to see her folks. She really should visit again with Echo.">Glory Star fixed her husband an amused look, to his confusion>"... Wha- *chirp*">Gabriel cut himself off as Glory's wing brushed against his belly, suddenly aware of his obnoxiously hard erection, gripping the table and humping briefly>"I'd accuse you of not paying attention, but certain potions tend to be more a little effective on griffons. That, and I wouldn't have noticed if I didn't know our daughter so well.">Gabriel didn't have to press her for answers: her teasing hoof brought his attention to the sticky fluid coating much of his underbelly and shaft, the potion's effect crumbling now that the hen herself was absent, leaving behind plenty of evidence of a very frustrated, yet pleased, hen>"Though, you did just say that she should visit 'again', so maybe, some part of you knew that our daughter was present.">He had to see the proof for himself, to confirm what his subconscious clearly already knew...>Glory Star watched as Gabriel stuck his head under the table, knowing that he was 'gone' the moment part of his neck and tail fluffed up, and was immensely thankful to her past self, in ensuring the rest of their evening was completely free~>She had a feeling she wouldn't be going anywhere until she was just as full as her daughter likely was at the end of dinner
Hope everyone had a good morning, I sure as hell didn't. Woke up feeling good this morning and then discovered that overnight my phone had decided to become a paperweight. I could still turn it on, but it just took me to the bootup screen and no longer accepted the password I've been using unchanged ever since I got it so I couldn't get into it.Took it to a Verizon place and they told me there isn't anything they can do to fix it so I'd have to get a new one. The phone was old at this point, but getting a new Samsung s21 was expensive.Everything from my old phone was saved by Google, so I still have my apps and shit. >>40521363>>40521446To make sure it's nice and stiff, you give the shaft a long lick from the very base to the tip.'Interesting. It almost feels like a vagina until the penis springs out.'Satisfied with it's stiffness, you pull back and start getting some sketches and notes done, using your breasts as a lectern of sorts."Dumb stuff? Care to elaborate?""You know: picking fights, climbing giant fungi, pulling pranks, giving Xornet a hard time, even stole a few things."He chuckles a bit."I was a little menace, but Dad was a soldier so he eventually straightened me out."What do you do?
>>40523075Nodding we continue our sketch. Adding in some notes as we work to mark some details of his anatomy.I suppose getting into trouble is somewhat a universal thing. If what i've read is anything to go off of.
>>40523075"Not completely, if recent events are anything to go by. Then again, having two outside mares show up and ask for a good time may qualify as mitigating circumstances, so your record should still be untarnished. How do you masturbate? Rather, do you have a preferred method or fantasy? Changelings seem to have more methods available than the standard Pony, at a glance."Shit, that sucks. Tech can be infuriatingly disposable.
>>40523075Shit! And I thought being diagnosed with COVID this morning was bad! "If today was any indication, you still do have a bit of a mischievous streak. Not that it's a bad thing, it's cute, a bad boy going straight, and a journey that helps your reputation.""Have you ever dragged Xornet in your misadventures?"
>>40523192Sorry about Covid, it is not fun to go through. Hope you get better soon.>>40523133>>40523152You nod as you continue your sketching. Adding in some notes as you work to mark some details of his anatomy down."I suppose getting into trouble is somewhat a universal thing. If what I've read is anything to off of," You say, "If recent events are anything to go by, I'll say you still have a bit of a mischievous streak. Then again, having two outside mares show up and ask for a good time may qualify as mitigating circumstances, so your record should still be untarnished. Still, it's not a bad thing, a bad boy going straight, and a journey that helps your reputation.""T-Thanks." He stammers."Have you ever dragged Xornet in your misadventures?""I tried, but she never wanted to. She was always the grub that listened to her superiors and did what she was told," He replies, "In hindsight, I'm glad she never did follow me. She has grown up into a great Changeling and following me probably wouldn't have been good for her in the long run."You nod a little at this."...How do you masturbate? Rather, do you have a preferred method or fantasy? Changelings seem to have more methods available than the standard Pony, at a glance."He looks down at you and blinks a few times, not expecting the sudden change in question."Uh, m-magic is usually what I go with. Don't have to wait for it to grow to have fun.""Magic, huh," Dawyn asks, trotting over and sitting down next to you, "I have access to that through my horns, you know~."Kobelek blushes and looks away bashfully. At this, Dawyn looks over at you and smiles.What do you do?
>>40523589Why don't you demonstrate your usual routine? Perhaps Dawyn can replicate it~
>>40523589With her standing near to us, we casually reach over and take a gentle but firm grasp of one of her horns, pulling it closer so we can give it a kiss, smiling back at her."What a useful set of horns indeed~."While he's looking away, we do take glance between her and Kobelek's shaft, inviting her to use her magic or take a stab at exploring him if she so chooses, seeing as we received a lot of attention prior."You're also welcome to ask your own questions, Kobelek."If this does lead to stuff, I'd be more than happy with a brief time skip/fade to black if things escalate, just figured it would make sense for Luscinia to 'offer' a more direct chance for them to interact.
>>40523589 I'm not entirely sure what direction Dawyn's heading. Is this meant to be a joke about masturbating through horns?"Horns are quite sensitive~ While I don't have horns, I can use magic through my hooves. I have used Spark on my clitoris before, usually while in estrus.""We have been playing around with a protection spell. It was originally made to transfer pain to the caster, but we also learned it can transfer pleasure too. I must confess, your answer was rather vague. When you say you 'don't have to wait for it to grow' do you mean turning into a mare and playing with your different equipment? Or perhaps extending your tongue to pleasure your horn?"
>>40523785I did want a chance to draw/explore changeling pussy if he's comfortable with the idea being the opposite sex.
>>40523781>>40523785>>40523839>>40523850"With her sitting near you, you casually reach over to take a gentle but firm grasp of one of her horns, her tail shooting upward and her lips turning into a goofy grin as you pull her closer and give her horn a kiss."What a useful set of horns indeed~. While I don't have horns, I can use magic through my hooves, I have used Spark on my clitoris before, usually while in estrus."As he looks away, you take your own glance between Dawyn and Kobelek's shaft, trying to get her to use her magic or take a stab at exploring him. She squints inquisitively at his length before her horns start to glow and his length is blanketed by it. He jumps at this, but relaxes when he realizes what's going on, chuckling a bit at himself."I must confess, your answer was rather vague. When you say you 'don't have to wait for it to grow' do you mean turning into a mare and playing with your different equipment. Or perhaps extending your tongue to pleasure your horn?""No, what I meant was with magic I don't have to wait for my length to leave it's sheath until I can... play with it.""Why don't you demonstrate your usual routine? Perhaps Dawyn can replicate it~.""She's already doing it," He points out, "Though I usually just make it small ring.""Then let me just..."The magic surrounding his cock begins to shrink down, it's glowing fading as she makes it into a ring similar to what Kobelek did with your teats."There you go." He smiles at her."You know, you're also welcome to ask your own questions, Kobelek." You tell him."Right," He nods, "How long have the two of you known each other? A few months? Years?"What do you do?
>>40524030"Three days." We say dismissively.We pause to let it sink in."I'm not joking this time. I met Dawyn after my visit from Alln Lenora. She's a very pretty pony with brains and just the cutest personality. She would get excited over the topic of history and blush over the smallest of compliments. When she said she's never dated anyone before, I couldn't believe it. After learning more about each other and our own curiosities, I asked her if she would like to start a relationship with me. She agreed, and we click."We give her a nuzzle and a kiss."She's been a terrific and loving marefriend and I'm happy we're together."Alt:"She's been a terrific and loving marefriend, and is wild in the bedroom."
>>40524030We smile, both at his somewhat naive guess, founded from a culture where everyone likely knows everyone for years, and the fact that our relationship with Dawyn seems as such."I'm touched by your estimation, but you're using entirely the wrong reference points, but i can't blame you. Until a few weeks ago, I'd only regularly interacted with the same few ponies, a consequence of life as a hermit's apprentice. Being an adventurer started about that time, and the near death experiences there in give a certain appreciation for life and the things in it, to avoid faltering when given chances. Dawyn and I met a few days ago, and seeing her go on about history and flush over simple affections, it both resonated and was beyond adorable. So, I posited we enjoy each others company for as long as we travel together, and we've been doing exactly that.">>40524107Seconding!
>>40524107>>40524127You smile, both at his somewhat naïve guess, founded from a culture where everyone likely knows everyone for years and years, and the fact that your relationship with Dawyn seems like it's been months or years."Three days."He stares at you for several seconds."...You're kidding.""I'm not joking this time. I'm touched by your estimation, but you're using entirely the wrong reference points. Until a few weeks ago, I'd only regularly interacted with the same few Ponies, a consequence of life as a hermit's apprentice. Being an adventurer started around that time, and the near death experiences there give a certain appreciation for life and the things in it, to avoid faltering when given chances," You say, "I met Dawyn after my visit to Alln Lenora.

She agreed, and we click."You give her a nuzzle and a kiss. She smiles at this and wraps a hoof around your back to hold you close."She's been a terrific and loving marefriend and I'm happy we're together.""And I don't regret it one bit, you're a beautiful mare and have been fantastic as well." Dawyn says back to you, blushing from your compliments."I, uh... huh. With how much love I was getting from the two of you I suspected that you've been together for far, far longer," He admits, "Guess that shows that the two of you are meant for each other.""Thank you, ever since I met her it's been wonderful," She smiles, "Now, have you ever dated someone before?""I actually have dated a few Changelings before," He confirms to her, "None of them lasted for more than a few months, the longest one was six months, but none of them ended on bad notes so there's that."What do you do?
>>40524287I'm sure you'll find the right changeling mare sooner rather than later.Can you sense or eat other changeling's love? I'm curious what we're being evaluated against.
>>40524287We scoot closer to Dawyn so our still naked bodies are pressed against each other and lean into her slightly."That's good. Positive breakups show your a good stallion. I know you'll find 'the one' some day. Keep at it.""Do all changelings have a pony disguise? Ci'kada's transformation was flawless, so it's surprising how little changelings know about ponies."(I'm sure I could have made a better post. I'm struggling for some reason.)
>>40524664>>40525986You scoot yourself closer to Dawyn, pressing your naked body against hers and leaning into her slightly."That's good. Positive breakups show you're a good stallion. I'm sure you'll find the right Changeling mare sooner rather than later.""Thank you.""Can you sense or eat other Changeling's love," You ask, "I'm curious what we're being evaluated against.""We can, but it isn't as tasty as love from other races.""Do all Changelings have a Pony disguise? Ci'kada's transformation was flawless, so it's surprising how little Changelings know about Ponies.""Not everyone does. It's a requirement for the guards to have one, even if we haven't interacted with Ponies in a long time. I suppose it's an old tradition that never went away."You nod and get back to taking notes and sketching the length in front of you with Dawyn. After fifteen minutes you finish, but Dawyn keeps going for a bit longer.As she finishes up you look over her notes to find that it was mostly words with the occasional small sketch she puts down."Is everything good?" Kobelek asks.What do you do?
>>40526376I think we're done, for the most part anyway. I don't want to leave you unsatisfied, would you like us to help with that quickly before going back to the others? More carefully this time of course, I don't think a second trip to the hospital will end with you escaping without a thourough 'ribbing' as the doctor put it.'Though I wonder if he can suffer from 'blue balls', changelings do have a very different system so likely very different problems.'If he takes up the offer stroke him off quickly no need to make a big thing of it. Making a couple notes of his orgasm when we get to see what it actually looks like.Afterwards or otherwise head off to find Smoke and Tanssija again.
>>40526376'Her note taking is very neat and organized. I might have to take some tips from her.'"Yes we are."We flip it around to show him the detailed drawing of his equipment."Your penis will be the poster child of changeling penises.""Would you like us to help finish you off? Or if you're open minded, do you think you could turn into a changeling mare? I don't think we would have the opportunity to draw or explore one. We can make it worth your while~"
>>40526846>"Your penis will be the poster child of changeling penises."I feel like this is the most uncomfortable way to say this, it's perfect.
Sorry for disappearing. I got extremely busy yesterday. Didn't get back to my room until 2 AM last night.>>40526533>>40526846>>40527669'Her note taking is very neat and organized. I might have to take some tips from her.'"I think we're done, for the most part anyway."You flip your notebook around to show him the detailed drawing of his equipment. He leans forward a bit to get a better look at it, a small smile forming on his face."Huh, that's an amazing drawing, Silver," He compliments you, "You've gotten so many details down.""Your penis will be the poster child of Changeling penises," You respond back, his smile turning a bit uncomfortable for a moment as he leans back, "I don't want to leave you unsatisfied, would you like us to help with that quickly before going back to the others? More carefully this time of course, I don't think a second trip to the hospital will end with you escaping without a thorough 'ribbing' as the doctor put it."'Though I wonder if he can suffer from 'blue balls', Changelings do have a very different system so likely very different problems.'"Uh, i-if both of you would be okay with that." He stammers.You look over and Dawyn as you reach out and start to stroke him off which Dawyn decides to try and one up you on. By the end Dawyn had his length down her throat, the Changeling stallion gently holding her head against him as his cock jumps around inside her maw while you are able to sit back a bit and take notes on his orgasm, even if Dawyn made it a bit hard to see. Kobelek soon lets go of her and Dawyn slides with a pop, licking her lips as she looks up at him."There you go, should be good~.""T-Thank you."What do you do?
>>40530215"And thank you both."Putting our journal away, we lean in and give Dawyn's lips and neck a kiss, followed by kissing Kobelek, feeding him a little love to try and perk him up."How long until you'll be ready to go?... As in, rejoin the others."
>>40530215A wave of arousal strikes us like a bolt of lightning watching our marefriend deepthroat his cock without a second thought as of we weren't in the room with her. We watch as the blue glow down here throat pump what we assume are eggs down here gullet into her stomach as we take shaky notes.'If our circumstances were different, I would marry her.'When she released his cock, we pull her in and lock our lips with hers for a deep kiss as of the air we need to breath can only come from her mouth."I think you've awaken something in me today as well. That was hot~. You deepthroated him as if I wasn't in the room with you~."We kiss her again, but more tame and full of love this time, followed by a short hug."For the sake of notes, did you feel his flaps open when you swallowed?"After our answer, we write it down, then grab our bag to put on our cloak.'While modesty isn't required down here, I should at least cover up for my friends.'"Is everyone ready to go?"
>>40530452Seconding!We should already be wearing our cloak, we tossed it on when we got our stuff, and I can't find a reference that implies we took it off.
>>40530215>"Your penis will be the poster child of Changeling penises," You respond back, his smile turning a bit uncomfortable for a moment as he leans backAre you sure you're okay with your image being shared. I realize now that the idea can be uncomfortable for you...
>>40530378>>40530452>>40530476>>40530573A wave of arousal strikes you like a thunderbolt from the heavens watching your marefriend deepthroat his cock without a second thought as if you weren't in the room with her. You watch as a blue glow is pumped down her throat as you take some shaky notes of what you were witnessing.'If our circumstances were different, I would marry her.'When she releases it you put your journal away before leaning in and placing a kiss on her neck and then her lips for a deep kiss, kissing her as if the air you need to breathe could only come from her mouth. After several seconds you separate from her."I think you've awaken something in me today as well. That was hot~! You deepthroated him as if I wasn't in the room with you~.""Sounds like someone is a bit of voyeur~."After this response you kiss her again, more tamely this time. You keep it short as you then lean up to kiss Kobelek, feeding him some love to try and perk him up. You could feel him relax a bit and push back against your kiss which doesn't last too long either."For the sake of notes, did you feel his flaps open when you swallowed?""Yes, they stiffened up and almost became rigid in a way."After Dawyn's answer you quickly write it down. Once it was down you return your attention to Kobelek as you remember his earlier expression."Are you sure you're okay with your image being shared? I realize now that the idea can be uncomfortable for you...""It's... alright, I suppose," He says, "Just the way that was phrased was a bit weird to me."You nod a bit at this."Low long until you'll be ready to go... As in, rejoin the others?""It'll be-"He starts, but stops midsentence to stare off into space for a few moments."...Xornet is going to take Smoke and Tanssija here. They're all done with the hot springs."What do you do?
>>40531111Ah, I hope they enjoyed. That telepathy is quite useful.We take a curious glance downwards and check if Dawyn's belly is glowing again.
>>40531111"Excellent. Glad they got to enjoy some peace and quiet together, or in general, in Xornet's case. Is there anywhere else we will be visiting in particular? A return trip to the nursery was on the agenda."
>>40531111"Oh? Do you think we'll have the time to clean up this messy place? There's a lot of clutter everywhere, we may just need to hide it all in a room somewhere."Our voice is a faux worry, but our emotions are amused."We can help you clean those plates if you like. While we still have you privately, would you be okay with turning into a Changeling Mare? You can refuse, of course, but with how busy your queen is, I get the feeling we won't get the chance to explore one."(I debated on the Queen line for a bit, but figured it's basically an inside joke at this point.)
>>40531377>>40531392>>40531498"Ah, excellent. Glad they got to enjoy some peace and quiet together, or in general, in Xornet's case. That telepathy is quite useful. Is there anywhere else we will be visiting in particular? A return trip to the nursery was on the agenda.""There was that, there was also the forest outside to look at if you still want to do that."As he speaks you look around the room again, taking this opportunity to curiously glance downward to see if Dawyn was glowing again. You couldn't see a glow though."Do you think we'll have the time to clean up this messy place? There's a lot of clutter everywhere, we may just need to hide it all in a room somewhere."Your voice is full of faux worry, but your emotions are amused. He gives you an amused smile in return."We can help you clean those plates if you like. While we still have you privately, would you be okay with turning into a Changeling mare," You ask, "You can refuse, of course, but with how busy your queen is, I get the feeling we won't get the chance to explore one.""We can do it quick, but Xornet will be here soon with your friends so it won't be for long."*fwoop*He disappears and reappears in a burst of green fire to reveal himself as a Changeling mare. He looked the same besides for a smaller size and smoother features."Here you go."His voice was also feminine in sound.What do you do?
>>40531712We quickly jot down the difference between this form at the last.'This is potentially the purest example of sexual dimorphism I'll ever see, there is little chance for other factors to change and act as variables.'Perfect. How lets see, no teats that's expected though. Dawyn, could you spread him- We pause for a moment our brow furrowing.-her...? Kobelek, either with your claws or magic. I'm quiet curious if there is also a glow, or there are other adaptions. ...As long as you don't have an issue with us taking a closer look Kobelek?We take note of everything heading Konelek's word on not having too much time. After that we lean in our tongue slathered with spit and take a taste making mental reminders on if there were difference to the flavor from now to how he tasted before.
>>40531712Assuming there is a door, close and lock it if we haven't already."We'll be quick, but just in case. You do look cute though. Anything you like about a Changeling mare's form in particular? On yourself or others... Also, does your genitalia match when you adopt a Pony disguise? It randomly crossed my mind that you might not know what a stallion's phallus looks like."We run a hoof over Kobelek's chitin, testing to see if the texture is any different. We then run a hoof over her belly, testing to see if it's softer or segmented, to account for swelling, or of the chitin would simply adapt as eggs grow.
>>40531712We look at her up and down, getting a good look at Kolebek's now sleeker features. Does his soul show signs of changing gender? Any signs of breasts?"That was quick. I take it you've assumed this form before?"We lift a hoof feeling her curves and reaching between her hind legs, and looking for a vagina. Is there closed up soft spot like with male changelings?If there is:'Interesting. Like males, the area is closed off. Is it because of chitin, or a means to detour rape?'"I'll be quick, memorizing what I see and sketch it later with illusions."We delicately rub her lower lips, gathering a sense of feel, then give it a taste, worming our tongue inside. Do we feel/taste anything different from Dawyn's? How does it compare from the slit of a male changeling?After that, we look to Dawyn."May I barrow your claws, sweetie?"We move aside and let her spread Kolebek's lower lips with her claws. We then look inside and build an illusion of what we're seeing to better commit to memory and get a closer."Alright, that should do. Thank you for allowing us to explore you physically. Before you turn back-"We lean up to give him a passionate kiss."-i have a feeling you've always wanted to kiss a mare as a mare.""Alright, let's clean up before our guests arrive."
>>40531766>>40531776>>40531837You quickly look her up and down, committing every detail down to memory. His soul shows you no changes and when you look where breasts should be you see none, just normal chitin.'This is potentially the purest example of sexual dimorphism I'll ever see, there is little chance for other factors to change and act as variables.'"That was quick. I take it you've assumed this form before? Anything you like about a Changeling's mare form in particular? On yourself or others... Also, does your genitalia match when you adopt a Pony disguise? It randomly crossed my mind that you might now know what a stallion's phallus looks like.""Once, it's actually been a long time since I changed to a different gender," He replies, "I do like that they're slimmer and smaller, and I think I know what it looks like.""We'll be quick, just in case. You do look cute though," You tell him, "Now let's see, no teats but that's expected."You lift a hoof up to run it over Kobelek's chitin, finding that the chitin felt a bit softer but also smoother. You run it over her belly and find that, while it's hard to see, the chitin over her belly is segmented in what felt like hexagon shapes. You then move to between her hind legs where you do find a soft spot like with male Changelings, but it was a bit bigger and shaped more like an oval rather than a circle.'Interesting. Like males, the area is closed off. Is it because of chitin, or a means to deter rape?'"I'll be quick, memorizing what I see and sketch it later with illusions. Dawyn, could you spread him-"You pause and then furrow your brows in thought."-her...? Kobelek, either with your claws or magic. I'm quite curious if there is a glow, or there are other adaptions... As long as you don't have an issue with us taking a closer look, Kobelek?"She shakes her head.Dawyn moves over and spreads her open with two claws, the softer chitin readily spreading open and finding that there was a glow coming from her inner walls as well. Past the soft chitin and the glow you didn't see any difference from your own inner walls. You lean down to get a taste of her, worming your tongue inside and then back out into your mouth. Her juices tasted strangely fruity, close to the taste of an apple. Having gotten a taste you then look inside to build a quick illusion of what you're seeing to better commit to memory."Alright, that should do. Thank you for allowing us to explore you physically. Before you turn back-"You lean up to give her a passionate kiss, this one lasting a while as she readily pushes back against you and lets her tongue wrestle with yours before you both pull back."-I have a feeling you've always wanted to kiss a mare as a mare.""You know me well already~.""Alright, let's clean up before our guests arrive."He changes back to his normal form and gets up from the bed. His magic grabs the plates and floats them after him as he takes them to the kitchen.What do you do?
>>40532040'I wonder if a single changeling is capable of asexual reproduction. If they can carry their own eggs, with some magic to teleport them in. Perhaps a question for another day. Taking a moment we help clean up as well straightening out a few things, lowering our voice we talk to Dawyn.Kobelek made for a pretty cute mare. Did you have a good time with all of this?
>>40532040We take a moment to stare at our illusion of Kolebek's pussy, a little disappointed at the mundaneness compared to his cock.'Perhaps there's a difference deeper than what we can see? Do the walls squeeze the phallus differently? If only I can examine their dead, I could get better answers...'"I think we may be able to find more differences in the cervix. The mare fertilizes the eggs, so one hypothesis could be that they could have testicles where the ovaries are usually located. What do you think, Sweetie?"We quickly make notes in shorthoof and a rough outline of the pussy before joining Kolebek in the kitchen."Would you like some help?"
This is really annoying. I'm constantly getting conflicted information on how to handle being sick with COVID.HR tells me I need to work tomorrowLOA company tells me to fill out paperwork that will appear tomorrow.Management tells me I was meant to call in for 3 days (that includes tomorrow)My body isn't ready to return.I feel this would be easier if I had a doctor to contact, but without insurance, that's not an option. I may need to look into a free clinic, but I'm my opinion, my work should provide me a doctor so they know I'm not making shit up. I did take a test through a pharmacy clinic and received a note saying I'm positive, but I guess that's not enough these days. I hate bureaucracy!
>>40533960Yeah, bureaucracy sucks. Been years since COVID started, so it really should be ironed out by now. You're best able to judge your situation, and if you're too exhausted to work, they should understand that, but idk.
>>40533960They really want you to work with COVID? When I got sick with it I could barely do anything. I would tell them you need more time if that's even possible with them.>>40532104>>40532169You spend a moment staring at your illusion of Kobelek's pussy, a bit disappointed at how mundane it is compared to his cock.'Perhaps there is a difference deeper than what we can see or the differences are hidden? Do the walls squeeze the phallus differently? If only I can examine their dead, I could get better answers...'You get up as well and slowly follow Kobelek to the kitchen, still in thought.'I wonder if a single Changeling is capable of asexual reproduction. If they can carry their own eggs, with some magic to teleport them in. Perhaps a question for another day.'As you move you take the time to straighten some things out, lowering your voice as Dawyn follows you."Kobelek made for a pretty cute mare. Did you have a good time with all of this?""Yeah, it was a wonderful time," She smiles back quietly, "Glad I got to experience this. The professors back home are going to be fascinated!""I think we may be able to find more differences in the cervix. The mare fertilizes the eggs, so one hypothesis could be that they could have testicles where the ovaries are usually located. What do you think, Sweetie?""Could be, could be. If that is the case then that's a very interesting switched situation that's still familiar."The two of you quiet down as you both finally reach Kobelek. He was at the basin in the kitchen with the water being fed by a small, portable stone barrel. Using a cloth, he was cleaning away at a plate underneath the flowing water."Would you like some help?""If you could both clean a plate each that would be awesome."He floats over two more cloths for you, both of them a plain white."If you want to, of course."What do you do?
>>40534777Nice trips!Yep. They want me to work while sick. I guess wearing a mask while working is acceptable. I should have asked them about not feeling 100%, but that's hindsight now. If this is a mistake by HR, they'll learn just how bad they've messed up. Something I wish I had the option for was to talk a human from the LOA company to explain the situation, but robots are cheap labor that don't complain. "You've been very kind to us and been noting but patient with our constant inquiries. It's the least we can do."We take the cloth from his magic. Is it cotton or silk?We watch Kolebek scrub his plate for a moment before taking one ourselves and mimicking his actions."Do you changelings do their own farming? You've mentioned eating mushrooms and the hive has a bar, so I assume there's a way to grow different grains underground for alcohol?""Is there a way to bottle emotions for later consumption? Pardon the pun."
>>40534777I've... Seen it done before. I think I understand how to do it.'The servants would always take care off this, that's probably a privilege most don't have. Maybe I should look into making a servant to do that sort of thing on my travels.'Taking a cloth we start to clean up the plate trying to think back to how the servants did it for a little while before we give up and start harshly scrubbing the plate.
>>40534864>>40535237"You've been very kind to us and been nothing but patient with our constant inquiries. It's the least we can do.""Mmhmm, they're going to be here soon so it'll also speed things up." Dawyn nods.You take a cloth from his magic, feeling the silk underneath your hooves before moving up next to him."Do you Changelings do their own farming? You've mentioned eating mushrooms and the hive has a tavern, so I assume there's a way to grow different grains underground for alcohol?""We do, but it isn't like the plants on the surface: fungi, mosses, lichen, and some ferns are what we can grow down here. Most of the alcohol is from fungi.""Is there a way to bottle emotions for later consumption? Pardon the pun.""You can by turning it into a gel, though I don't know the process," He states, "You can also put it in alcohol.""We'll have to try that later." Dawyn comments.You turn back to cleaning, grabbing a plate from the basin and studying it."I've... Seen it done before. I think I understand how to do it."You think back on how to do it. You and Master never had to clean dishes, that was something the servants always did. You tried to help them a few times, but they always rejected your help by saying that 'Master wouldn't like to see you doing this'.'The servants would always take care of this, that's probably a privilege most don't have. Maybe I should look into making a servant to do that sort of thing on my travels.'You start trying to clean the plate while thinking back to how the servants did it, but you eventually give up and start harshly scrubbing the plate. You do this for a minute until you feel Kobelek's eyes staring at you, causing you to stop and look over at him."That's... not how you clean a plate. You'll scratch it if you keep that up."He gently takes the plate and cloth from your hooves and floats them in front of you with his magic."You're suppose to clean it like this-"He brings the cloth to the plate and gently rubs it in circles on the plate. Not putting too much pressure on it, but just enough to get the gunk off of it."-Slow, gentle circles, not pressing hard into it. You can scrub harder if there is something that is being stubborn."What do you do?
>>40536373We follow his advice being a fair bit more gentle with the plate.Ah, I had thought doing it harder would be better.
>>40536373Taking it back, we do as he instructed."Thank you. I've... Meals were an oddity with my Mentor. Forgetting to eat wasn't uncommon for him, or myself at times, and there wasn't a proficient cook among us. Time spent cleaning unrelated to magic or personal responsibilities was time that could be put to better use elsewhere. This is novel though."
>>40536373'Oh, so it's like cleaning a skull.'"I believe I can do that. with the plates being made of what feels like clay, I assumed it would be harder to scrub."We take his advice and put in our expertise of cleaning bones."This cloth feels really nice. Does your hive breed spiders by chance, or is this a different type of silk?"Our emotions higten on the idea of a spider farm somewhere.
>Intrigued by the mushroom alcohol, Smoke decides to go to the tavern to give it a try.>"Hello, bar keeper. What's your strongest drink?">"Fuck you.">"Excuse me?">"You've asked for our strongest drink. That would be the 'Fuck You'. It's a blend of both green and red cap, with a shot of surface vodka and bitterness.">"Uh, do you mean 'bitters'?">"No.">The barkeep goes under the counter and pulls out a crimson liquid.>"This batch comes from a surface mare's jealousy over her husband's 'good friend' or really adds a kick to the drink.">...Meanwhile, centuries later...>Gael noticed Nocturne acting strange.>What was even stranger was that she suggested to go to a bar near the mountainside of town.>There were several changelings in the bar, with a changeling behind the counter.>"Heya, ladies! What can I getcha?">"Uh, what's a good starter drink?">"Dumb ass.">"Huh?">"That's the name of the drink. It's just a mix of Crown and spite.">"Do you mean 'Sprite'?">"No. As in the emotion."
>>40536461>>40536531>>40536552You take it back and when you do you have a bit of an epiphany.'Oh, so it's like cleaning a skull.'"Ah, I had thought doing it harder would be better. I believe I can do that, with the plates being made out of clay I assumed it would be harder to scrub."You take his advice and put in your expertise of cleaning bones to use. It turns out that it was actually kinda similar as you quickly get the hang of it."I've... meals were an oddity with my mentor. Forgetting to eat wasn't uncommon for him, or myself at times, and there wasn't a proficient cook among us. Time spent cleaning unrelated to magic or personal responsibilities was time that could be put to better use elsewhere. This is novel though.""Don't worry about it, I assume you had someone that could clean for you guys then?"You nod slightly, but you don't explain further as you instead move on."This cloth feels really nice. Does your hive breed spiders by chance, or is this a different type of silk?"Before his answer your emotions were already heighten by the idea of a spider farm somewhere. It swells a bit more when you get your answer."The hive does actually have a spider farm where we get most of our silk," He confirms, "I haven't gone there before, but I've always been interested in it."What do you do?
>>40536801Maybe we could go take a look at it as part of the tour. Though I'm not too sure how much that would cut into our time or if it'd really interest anyone else.
>>40536801"Then that's somewhere we should go to, assuming everyone is on board, of course. Spiders are adorable!"
>>40536831>>40537085"Maybe we could go take a look at it as part of the tour, assuming everyone is on board, of course since I'm not sure how much that would cut into our time. Spiders are adorable!""Sure, I would love to go," Kobelek smiles, "It's something I haven't seem myself so it would be a first for me as well.""Yeah, we can go." Dawyn nods simply.*knock knock knock*The three of you are interrupted by a series of knocks at the door. Kobelek looks over at the door and stares at it for a moment."...That's Xornet," He announces, putting his plate down and trotting off, "I'll go get it."This just leaves you with Dawyn. As the two of you get back to cleaning you notice that Dawyn has an uncomfortable look on her face that she was trying to hide using her short mane, an expression she's been wearing since you brought up spiders.What do you do?
>>40537157Moving up besides her we give her a nuzzle.... We don't have to go see the spiders, there is a lot else to see and we can hardly see it all.
>>40537157Stepping closer, we hug her."We don't have to go. My interest doesn't supercede your discomfort. Kobelek has the option to visit the spider farm whenever he wishes, and I will have other opportunities to see arachnids in and out of farms in the future, I'm sure. What would you like to see? Perhaps another visit to the nursery?"
>>40536668Love this, it's very fun, but my brain couldn't move past an obvious joke or two>"Huh.">"Yeah, you've gotta be careful about what you order. Doesn't help that a number of more traditional drinks have 'Changeling-ified' variants to make them more appropriate.">"So something like a Moos-Cow Mule?">The bartender interjected>"Vodka, a tarter vein of spite, maybe a little malice if the spite isn't quite right, and bubbling desire. Sometimes carbonated for extra effect.">A nostalgic grin crossed Nocturne's lips>"Of course, some of them are a little more, spiritual adaptions to the originals. I'd recommend not trying a Blowjob until you've had a few drinks at least. Oh, and the bottled stuff at that.">Gael was already blushing, lost in her thought, but Nocty was certain she could get what she wanted with just one more move>She leaned in and whispered salaciously to her>"And don't ask for anything on tap unless you really like the bartender~">*Hoot*>"You're adorable as ever, Gael.">"Y-you too..."
>>40537296>>40537303You step closer to her and give her a hug followed by a nuzzle."...We don't have to go see the spiders. My interest doesn't supersede your discomfort. Kobelek has the option to visit the spider farm whenever he wishes, and I will have other opportunities to see arachnids in and our of farms in the future, I'm sure. There is a lot else to see and we can hardly see it all, so what would you like to see? Perhaps another visit to the nursery?"She leans back into you at your touch and nuzzles you back."I'm sorry, I just have a massive fear of spiders, been like this for the longest time."She then leans back from you a bit."Another visit to the nursery would be good, but I don't want to stop you from seeing an animal you like and in a unique setting. I'll be just fine sitting outside while you see the spider farm."As she says this you hear Kobelek come back followed by the steps of the others."So, how have things been over here?" Xornet asks as she arrives with Smoke and Tanssija at the edge of the kitchen.What do you do?
Stopping for the night. Meant to post the Spelljammer summary yesterday, but 4chan decided to stop working as I was writing so: Blood Pressure Spike.It starts with everyone going about their days before meeting up to see the King of Bral, Cozar, because Regis wants everyone to meet him and to discuss the Ozamata question. He's friendly with everyone and when asked about Ozamata he says that when order was brought to Bral seven years ago he didn't have enough soldiers to protect the whole of Bral so he made a deal with Ozamata to let him protect the lower city while Cozar focuses on the rest, but now he has the men to do it and if evidence if brought up of Ozamata committing wrong doing at the next council meeting in a week and a half he can remove Ozamata from power. While he is hiding the Feyr attack from the lower city that isn't enough to really remove him from power, but if Dead Space can bring proof that he kidnapped Siegen then that would very much be enough. There is also the question if he will actually protect the lower city if Ozamata is removed which I didn't hear the answer for, but from what Csilla said about it later it sounded a bit like a non answer.Everyone leaves and meets back up at Csilla's place, though not before Tal'cha moves out of her shitty tavern apartment and into Csilla's. It was a suggestion from Regis and Csilla immediately offered her the chance to stay at her place. The discussion there is about Cozar and Ozamata which again boils down to Csilla and Tal'cha being on Ozamata's side and everyone else against him. Csilla and Regis start shouting at each other and the conversation about this ends when Fueryon storms out. Csilla also leaves shortly after, but it's because Thokk comes over and the two leave for a private walk which is just the two talking about stuff, nothing bad comes up with that. Tal'cha also explains her new plan for Tik-kat'cha to the group and, to my surprise, the ones there don't disapprove of it and there is just a few details to work out.The next day goes by extremely fast. The only thing to really note is that Tal'cha heads to her work early because she realized that if she's going to leave Bral soon for the mysterious job Ozamata is cooking for the group it would be better for her boss to try and get someone who would be more consistent than her. Her boss had the same idea because she gets fired, but because Tal'cha was going to quit anyway there isn't any hard feelings between either of them and Tal'cha leaves on good terms with her now ex-boss.Cont.
>>40537537Evening comes and a lot of shit happens. It starts with Pancake and Fueryon at the Celestian temple as Pancake does every evening but Fueryon decided to come along. The two talk with Priestess Bri there for a bit until the sound of an explosion rocks the temple, a bunch of disguised robed people in the temple start stabbing people who are just trying to worship their gods and then more robed people enter led by one of the player's old characters: Ryden, who I got to interact with as Dusk, and another character or NPC that everyone recognized but I didn't because the group is made up of people who played a bunch of one shots together and know each other and then there is me who has only played with them a few times before and that was a year ago.Meanwhile Tal'cha is hanging out with Csilla, Neemo, and Regis at her place after a day of martial training with her when her own place is also rocked by an explosion that is extremely close. Everyone rushes outside to see that Ozamata's bar that is situated across from Csilla's place is now a pile or burning rubble, they hear the explosion from the Temple District but they also hear a third explosion from the docks...Where her brother is because the pirates docked there, doesn't help that he told her that the pirates found some experimental explosives that they've been storing on the ship.And that was the session ending with that fucking cliffhanger of an ending. Bral is getting attacked by some group, Pancake and Fueryon are in danger, and Tik-kat'cha is probably in some sort of danger as well. At the moment I'm hoping the DM didn't just kill Tal'cha's brother but I don't think he did, he did make a statblock for him that he gave to me during the weekend and he also asked me to find character art for him at the same time. Also left me thinking if Tal'cha should've grabbed him before the explosions, but I couldn't predict whatever the fuck is happening, the DM probably didn't expect me to predict what happened, and Tik-kat'cha was suppose to head back to the pirates around the time of the explosions anyway I think. Either the pirate ship is fine and is about to leave with him or Tik-kat'cha is in a bad situation right now.And I'm kinda stuck as well. Pancake and Fueryon are very much in danger, and I want to be a good player by helping them, but Tal'cha doesn't know they're in danger besides an explosion at the Temple District and seeing the explosion at the docks her in-character reaction would be to rush over there to make sure her brother is alright. I'm probably just being overly paranoid about what the group thinks of me right now.Anyway, good night everyone!
>>40537426I like you more then some spiders, there are definitely other places we can visit instead.Looking to Xornet a little smile grows on our lips.They've been pretty good. I think we ended up learning a lot overall. How are you all feeling after the spa?
>>40537426Seeing we haven't finish cleaning, we use the invisibility spell on the plates, hiding any evidence of the "mess"."Things have been great, and we've learned so much. You might be interested to know they make alcohol using mushrooms, Smoke."As we say this, we look for Kolebek and use minor illusion in front of him of a spider behind a no sign.
>>40537345>Cadwalader went to the hive to visit his wife.>Unfortunately, she was busy so he decided to wait by the bar.>"What's your specialty?">"Suck my dick.">"Pardon?">The bartender grabs a shaker and various liquor.>"Vanilla liquor, changeling rum, a shot of envy, shake-">He shakes everything in the shaker then pours it into the glass.>"Pour and top with coconut flakes.">He then slides the drink to Cadwalader.>"Suck My Dick."Alternative drink: Eat my Ass"Chocolate Liquor, Carmel Liquor, Bailey's, Lust, shake, pour, top with vanilla cream. Eat my Ass.
>>40538053>>40538455You quickly cast a spell over the plates, hiding away the evidence of the 'mess'."I like you more then some spiders, there are definitely other places we can visit instead."You then look over at Xornet with a smile growing on your lips."Things have been great, and we've learned so much. You might be interested to know they make alcohol using mushrooms, Smoke.""Really?" He asks as he looks over at Xornet, this clearly piquing his interest."They do," Xornet confirms, "It's what is served here at taverns."At this he then looks over at Tanssija with a smile, silently telling her that he wanted to try it. Tanssija smiles and responds after a few moments."Yes, we can try it.""Yes!" He cheers, pumping a hoof in victory.As you watch this interaction you look over at Kobelek and quickly use minor illusion to create a spider behind a no sign. He studies it for a moment before nodding in understanding."How are you all feeling after the spa?""Refreshed," Tanssija replies, "We were thinking of heading back to the surface, but it looks like we're trying mushroom alcohol now."What do you do?
>>40539308We have been here a while, but some drinks shouldn't take long. We might be the first ponies to drink them, and they might make very valuable trade goods because of their rarity above ground. We can leave after.'It's a shame they don't use clothes, I did want to get a more permanent souvenir but the amulet will have to do.'>>40538455When did we learn they made alcohol with mushrooms?
>>40539308"Really? So soon? There's still a lot we've haven't seen yet. What time is it?"
>>40539383>"Do you Changelings do their own farming? You've mentioned eating mushrooms and the hive has a tavern, so I assume there's a way to grow different grains underground for alcohol?">"We do, but it isn't like the plants on the surface: fungi, mosses, lichen, and some ferns are what we can grow down here. Most of the alcohol is from fungi."Fungi. My bad, but it's close enough
>>40539383>>40539405"Really? So soon? There's still a lot we haven't seen yet. What time is it?""I think the evening just started? It's a bit hard to tell besides what my body feels like it is." Smoke guesses."Well, some drunks shouldn't take long. We might be the first Ponies to drink them, and they might make very valuable trade goods because of their rarity above ground," You say, "We can leave afterwards."'It's a shame they don't use clothes, I did want to get a more permanent souvenir but the amulet will have to do.'"Then we can go do that," Smoke says, "There is a tavern nearby, right?""Yep, it isn't too far." Xornet nods.Smoke goes to speak, but blinks and looks over at the two of you."Are the two of you fine with this? Is there anything else you want to do?"What do you do?
>>40539515"I'm fine with it. We were curious about it as well. Love can be condensed into a liquid and mixed in with drinks, so would give us a chance to know what concentrated love would taste like."We look over to Dawyn for her answer.
>>40539515"A visit to the nursery might be nice, and I believe Kobelek had a quaint and quiet patch of subterranean flora to show off, but exotic alcohol sounds like a good way to settle out the evening a bit. We should keep things somewhat tame though.">>40538803Nice!
>>40539515I hardly think this will be the last time we visit, maybe the next time won't be for a while but we've been given some allowance to return. The spa was a bit much for you so this would only be fair really.
>>40539515>>40539559(me)>give us a chance to know what concentrated love would taste likeWe nuzzle Dawyn."Not that I don't already get it by the barrel full."
>>40539559>>40539568>>40539583>>40539619"Another visit to the nursery would be nice, and I believe Kobelek had a quaint and quiet part of subterranean flora to show off, but exotic alcohol sounds like a good way to settle out the evening a bit," You say, "I hardly think this will be the last time we visit, maybe the next time won't be for a while but we've been given some allowance to return.

Love can also be condensed into a liquid and mixed in with the drinks, so it would give us a chance to know what concentrated love would taste like."You look over at Dawyn and nuzzle her."Not that I don't already get it by the barrel full."Dawyn smiles at this and kisses you on the side of the head in response."I think I would love to try Changeling alcohol. It'll be a great experience.""Then let's go!""I'll lead the way then." Kobelek says.He leads all of you back outside into the streets of the hive once more, taking you down a few streets until you end up at the tavern where you get a bit of a surprise. Rather than the rectangular buildings that you were used to seeing in the hive at this point the bar was actually carved out of a massive boulder that was easily twenty five feet tall. The bar was carved entirely inside of it which left the irregular shape of the boulder intact. You head in through a set of wooden doors and end up in a cozy looking tavern that was quite lively. Everything was still made of stone from the surrounding boulder, but large sections of the tavern have been painted so the entire thing wasn't just gray. At the bar counter a Changeling mare with a short purple mane pops up from behind it, quickly smiling at Kobelek and waving at him."Hey, Kobelek! Been a bit since I've last seen you."Kobelek smiles back and approaches the mare."Just been a bit busy, Ledibwg. I'm sure the news of recent events have reached you.""Yep, I assume these are the Ponies you've been showing the hive to?"What do you do?
>>40539704We nod our head slightly.Aside from being a slight misnomer for one of our group that'd be correct.
>>40539704'A friend of his then. Perhaps something more as well?'"Indeed, it's nice to meat you you, Ledibwg. Silver Lining."We extend a hoof for her to bump/shake.
>>40539704"That would be us. I'm Silver Lining."
>>40539753>>40539759>>40539764'A friend of his then. Perhaps something more as well?'You scan their souls for a moment. You didn't find anything that suggested love, but there was a tiny bit along with some nervousness that was within Kobelek's soul with him so close to her."Indeed, aside from being a slight misnomer for one of our group that'd be correct, it's nice to meet you, Ledibwg. I'm Silver Lining."Your friends introduce themselves and she happily bumps hooves with all of you."It's nice to meet everyone, hope your visit to our lovely hive has been going well," She smiles, "Now, what brings you guys to my tavern besides Kobelek wanting a drink?""We heard that Changelings use fungi to brew alcohol and even infuse emotions into it," Smoke explains to her, "We were hoping to try some while we are here.""Of course! Did Kobelek offer to hoof the bill?""Uhhhhh..."As Kobelek's nervousness, Ledibwg giggles at him."I'm just kidding, Kobelek. Here, since this is the first time for all of you, I'm assuming, how about your first drinks are on the house?""That's very generous of you, thank you." Smoke thanks her."Is there any specific emotion you guys want? Love, happiness, anger?"What do you do?
>>40539963"How much do emotions impart upon the imbiber? I suppose it would be unknown for non-Changelings, so perhaps something light. Do you have a range of complexity, such as befuddlement or consternation? Something in the Confusion 'family' may be best to start with."'I have plenty of positive emotion, and drowning in wrath or despair may not be entirely ideal.'
>>40539963How about more than that, I may not have changeling coin but I do have something else you may want. We pull out one of our many bottles of vodka. An equal trade, some alcohol from the surface for some from underground.
>>40539987I would have just said love is fine, but I want to see where this goes.
>>40539999We have 1 bottle of Vodka from Smoke Tree's family (based on the inventory). Should be up to him whether we part with it, and I'm pretty sure it's already been opened.
>>40540052Not that anon, but from what I remember, our pack was filled with a lot of it. I figured we would have had an endless supply, or if it is one bottle, an endless one.
>>40539963"Would we feel the effects of the emotion you serve us? I feel very content right now, but more happiness wouldn't hurt."
>>40540052Yeah we got a few, I'm not sure why Pluto never marked down the amount but I know we have at least a couple.
>>40539987>>40539999>>40540025>>40540052>>40540059>>40540131>>40540191Cause I'm forgetful sometimes. I'll raise it to six. I think that's a reasonable number."How about more than that, I may not have Changeling coinage but I do have something else you may want.""Which is?" She asks, leaning over the counter curiously.You pull out one of your seven bottles of Vodka and place it on the counter, reducing it down to six."An equal trade, some alcohol from the surface for some from underground."She takes it in her magic and inspects it inquisitively, staring at it hard while she turns the bottle around in her magic. She then uncorks the bottle and takes a sniff of it, pulling her head away and shaking it a second later."Woah, smells strong! What alcohol is this?""Vodka," Smoke replies, "It's from the farm my family runs and hasn't been opened yet.""...Yeah, I'll take this as a trade." She nods, keeping it on the counter for now."Would we feel the effects of the emotion you serve us? I feel very content right now, but more happiness wouldn't hurt.""I'm... not sure," Ledibwg admits, "I have never served Changeling alcohol to Ponies or Deer before, so I don't know what'll happen.""I suppose it would be unknown for non-Changelings, so perhaps something light. Do you have a range of complexity, such as befuddlement or consternation?""The emotions are more broad. Here, let's start with some happiness for now."Without moving she uses her magic to grab several shot glasses and a bottle of yellow colored liquid. She sets the glasses down in front of you before opening the bottle and pouring the liquid into each glass one at a time. Once Smoke gets his he takes the glass in his magic and brings it up to sniff it."...Smells like beer." He comments."Has a similar color as well," Tanssija comments, "Though it's more yellow.""That's from the happiness that was put in it," Ledibwg explains, "Emotions have an effect on the coloration."Smoke studies it for a moment longer before downing the glass and setting it down, sitting there for a moment in contemplation before smiling a little."It's sweeter than a normal beer, the fungus adds a nice taste to it as well... I like it."At this you take a drink as well, but you don't down the whole thing to instead take a small gulp of it. It was indeed sweeter than any beer you've had with a bit of a sugary kick, but it was a good taste and what tasted like mushrooms added to this taste. Shortly after drinking the liquid you feel a small surge of happiness well up inside of you but it goes away pretty quick.What do you do?
>>40540263From that brief surge of happiness, we feel our lips tug into an uncharacteristically large smile before returning to our usual subtle smile."It is very sweet... I wish I had something to compare it to. I did feel a surge of happiness, and the fungus is a little unusual, but I don't hate it. You should try it, Sweetie."We watch her soul as she does."Are all emotions this sweet? Or is it just happiness?"We look over at the different bottles. Do they match the colors we see in souls? Head Cannon:Love is sweet like candyJoy is sweet like nectarFear is mintyAnger is spicySadness is saltyJealousy is bitterLust is like spicy cinnamon (basically Fireball)
>>40540263I'll be honest, I thought it was more that it didn't really matter how many we had. It was more a flavor item.The effect on mood is... Curious, but short lived. Likely not harmful short of sustained drinking, which in itself would be a bad thing. Could I try some love? I'm now curious.>>40540336Counterpoint, love is sweet and lust is sickly sweet, and there is endless arguments between mushroom wine concourses about the percentage of each is in a vintage.
>>40540336I'd say love should be similar with chocolate.Bit odd, but thinking something like contentment (or the equivalent) should feel like a glass of cold filtered water on a hot day.>>40540351Morning, Pluto!>>40537584Your character isn't omniscient, and seeing as there are three random explosions occurring, with no/very limited knowledge of where the rest of your party is, it just makes sense for you to rush off to the dock. Inquire about what you would know if you have to, if you think it would make things clear that you're conflicted between player and character goals, but it's a situation where most people would simply act before thinking (if they aren't frozen), imo, so you're good.
>>40540336>>40540951From that brief surge of happiness, you feel your lips tug upward into an uncharacteristically large smile before returning to your usual subtle smile."The effect on mood is... curious, but short lived. Likely not harmful short of sustained drinking, which in itself would be a bad thing," You say, "Is is very sweet... I wish I had something to compare it to. I did feel a surge of happiness, and the fungus is a little unusual, but I don't hate it. You should try it, sweetie.""Of course."She picks up her glass and drinks it down. You watch as her soul turns completely yellow as a surge of happiness hits her, a smile on her face as she sets the glass down. The surge quickly goes away though and her soul returns to normal."Wow! That is fascinating, the drink is great as well!""Are all emotions this sweet? Or is it just happiness?""It depends on the drink you get, some are sweet and others have different flavors."You scan over the different bottles, finding that the colors of the liquid match with each emotion. You stop at a pink colored one and point at it."Could I try some love? I'm not curious.""I would like to try some as well," Smoke says, "You want some as well, Tanssija?""Sure."Ledibwg floats down the pink bottle and pours the pink liquid out for all of you. You take the drink and slurp it down, becoming pleasantly surprised at the taste of chocolate that hits it. After you set it down you are filled with an immense love that causes you to look over at Dawyn, though like the happiness drink it goes away quickly.What do you do?
>>40542103We pause and blink a few times as we keep looking at Dawyn. Looking away from her with a shake of our head we suck in a breath. Looking around the the rest of them, watching out party finish their drinks, if they're waiting for us to speak on it though....That one, We trail off a bit as we think long enough to put together our words.That, might not be suitable for ponies. At least not in large amounts, I hadn't intended on looking at Dawyn but I just did it anyway. It could probably be used for special occasions. Last one left is hate right? Not an emotion I feel very often, could I please try it? er... Just in case actually. We disarm ourselves first, handing our weapons to Kobelek.
>>40542103'That was an involuntary action, not that I disagree with the pony I faced. Dawyn truly is a special mare to me.'We lean over and kiss her tenderly on the lips, giving her a little remnants of our drink in the process."I can understand why changelings enjoy the taste of love. I never had something like it."We then remember when we fed Kolebek in the mines, there were love hearts that filtered into his soul.'Could it be the same, if not similar effect when we ingest love?'After hearing someone say it tastes like chocolate:We raise an eyebrow."Is that so?"We pull out our box of chocolates. The sweet smell wofts the air."I still haven't tried one of these. Love tastes exactly like this?"We pop one into our mouth.
>>40542145>>40542191You pause and blink a few times as you keep looking at Dawyn. You look away from her with a shake of your head and you suck in a breath.'That was an involuntary action, not that I disagree with the Pony I faced. Dawyn truly is a special mare to me.'You lean over and kiss Dawyn tenderly on the lips, giving her a little remnant of your drink in the process. She smiles and goes to take a drink with the others with similar effects to what you had: Dawyn suddenly looking over at you and Smoke and Tanssija looking at each other before they snap out of it."That one..." Tanssija mutters, "That one is strong.""I can understand why Changeling enjoy the taste of love. I never had something like it," You say, "But, that might not be suitable for Ponies. At least not in large amounts, I hadn't intended on looking at Dawyn but I just did it anyway. It could probably be used for special occasions.""Yeah, that's understandable." Ledibwg nods."I did like it though, especially the chocolate taste." Smoke says.You raise an eyebrow at this."Is that so?"You take out your box of chocolates and open it up, the sweet smell of it wafting up into the air for everyone. "I still haven't tried one of these. Love tastes exactly like this?""Close to it, at least." Smoke nods.You pop one into your mouth and chew on it. There is a bit of a crunch as you break it apart with your teeth, but you find that it quickly melts in your mouth to spread a wonderfully sweet taste. It isn't as sweet as the drink, but it's close.'Definitely have to have some more later.'After confirming this you put them away and look back up at Ledibwg."Lost one is hate, right? Not an emotion I feel very often, could I please try it? Er... just in case actually."You quickly disarm yourself, hoofing your weapons to Kobelek who takes them. Once you turn back you find a glass with a blood red liquid waiting for you. You pick it up and drink it down, finding it to be spicy rather than sweet.As you set it down anger suddenly fills your being. Anger at Saraksa for invading your home, and anger at their soldiers for barging into your home and killing your Master. The anger made you want to smash something, but before you could grab the glass again the anger goes away.What do you do?
>>40542351We take a few deep rapid breaths tapping a hoof against the counter for a few moments as we cool down. We look to Ledibwg then we think better of it and instead turn to Kobelek and Xornet.Could you request the queen to make it illegal to serve hate to non changelings for me? It will only end in property damage or worse. Turning back to Ledibwg we sigh.I was going to ask you not serve it to any ponies but I understand there is probably more than one bar or place that serves these drinks. That one is actually legitimately dangerous, I'd equate it more to a combat stimulate then a drink.
>>40542351We're completely still as we look at our hoof and the glass we were going to smash.'Saraska... What did we do to you to warrant such drastic actions?'"Sorry. That-"A tear fell onto the counter and we realize we're crying."That brought back a hard memory for me... I don't recommend trying it. Excuse me."We trot out of the tavern just needing some time alone.
>>40542469>>40542484You're completely still as you look at your hoof and the glass you were getting ready to smash, letting out a few deep, rapid breaths while tapping a hoof against the counter.'Saraksa... What did we do to you to warrant such drastic actions?'You look over to a concern looking Ledibwg before thinking better of it and instead turning to Kobelek and Xornet."Could you request the queen to make it illegal to serve hate to non-Changelings for me? It will only end in property damage or worse."You then turn back to Ledibwg."I was going to ask you to not serve it to any Ponies but I understand there is probably more than one bar or place that serves these drinks. That one is actually legitimately dangerous, I'd equate it more to a combat stimulate then a drink.""If I owned the only bar there would be a lot more Changelings here," She replies, trying to add a bit of humor to the situation, "I'll make a note of that, Ponies have a different reaction to these drinks apparently... Are you okay, you're uh..."You look at her a bit confused until you notice your vision starts to blur a bit, lifting a hoof up to find that you were crying."Sorry. That-"You couldn't stop it or hide it as a tear falls onto the counter."That brought back a hard memory for me... I don't recommend trying it. Excuse me."You then trot out of the tavern, leaning yourself against the outside of the tavern as the tears start to flow a bit.What do you do?
>>40542737Taking a shaky breath through our snout, we slowly exhale, running the tip of our hoof (through the soil/across the stone floor), trying to distract from the unpleasant thoughts and memories that have been pried loose.'That was, unwise, careless. Now everyone is going to be concerned, and what do I say? Imbibing something that invokes strong negative emotions should be done with care, if at all, I shouldn't have-... Requesting it be made illegal was too knee jerk, perhaps. Smaller glasses, careful proportions could be used to establish a tolerance. Even still, it may be best kept restricted. I don't know... I miss Kost, and Master, and Home. I need to find him, before something happens to him, but he's smart, so he'll stay safe until I find him. Please stay safe.'Taking a few breaths, we close our eyes and try to wipe away our tears before they can ruin our makeup too much, glancing around.
>>40542737We take in a deep breath and let ourselves cry. 'I know I wasn't over it, but still having it all come to the surface all at once wasn't great.'
>>40542784>>40542805You take a shaky breath through your snout, and slowly exhale, running the tip of your hoof across the stone floor trying to distract yourself from the unpleasant thoughts and memories that have been pried loose, letting your tears hit the ground.'I know I wasn't over it, but still having it all come to the surface all at once wasn't great. Now everyone is going to be concerned, and what do I say? Imbibing something that invokes strong emotions should be done with care, if at all, I shouldn't have-...'You sniff and lift a hoof up to rub over your snout.'Request it be made illegal was too knee jerk, perhaps. Smaller glasses, careful proportions could be used to establish a tolerance. Even still, it may be best kept restricted. I don't know... I miss Kost, and Master, and Home. I need to find him, before something happens to him, but he's smart, so he'll stay safe until I find him. Please stay safe.'You take a few breaths and close your eyes as you try to wipe away your tears before they could ruin your makeup, though it was probably too late. You look up from the floor and glance around at your surroundings.You immediately spot Dawyn poking her head out the door to look at you and you could just barely see the others behind her. When you lock eyes with her she steps out full, slowly trotting up to you and sitting down next to you. After a few seconds of silence she then leans over to hug you, her claws wrapping around you gently.What do you do?
>>40543037The waterworks begin anew as she hugs us, simply leaning against her and hugging her back.
>>40543037We hold onto her tight and we hold her close.
>>40543093>>40543163The waterworks begin once more, simply leaning against her to hold onto her tight and keep her close as you start to cry into her shoulder. She just leans back against you and holds you, rubbing your back with her claw."Take as long as you need to, it's alright." She tells you quietly.Which you do, crying into her shoulder for several minutes and only pulling away when you have no more tears left to cry. You stare at the mess you made of her shoulder before looking at her where she gives you a small, patient smile.What do you do?
>>40545245It... Would be a lot to explain, but thank you for being here.
>>40545245We waste no time in kissing her, breaking it only a moment later as we realize it was probably just a little too sudden, forceful, and desperate, instead giving her a more brief peck on the lips to convey our appreciation even as we regain our breath. Sitting back, we lift her and pull her part way into our cloak as we hug her belly to belly, setting her down a few seconds later but not fully letting her go."I, apologize if I worried you. Who could've predicted drinking liquid emotion could elicit a strong emotional response? Some wounds are still fairly fresh."
>>40545245"I'm, I'm sorry. Everything just resurfaced, and it still hurts."
>>40545326>>40545379>>40545391You waste no time in kissing her, breaking it a moment later when you realize it was a little too sudden, forceful, and desperate, instead giving her a more brief peck on the lips to convey your appreciation even as you regain your breath.

Would be a lot to explain, but thank you for being here."You give her a humorless smile."Who could've predicted drinking liquid emotion could elicit a strong emotional response? Some wounds are still fairly fresh."She nods in understanding."I didn't expect it either," She says, "And you don't need to apologize or tell me what's wrong. Just know I'll be there to listen if you ever want to tell me."She then leans over and gives you a peck on the cheek.What do you do?
>>40545591Maybe someday, but... Not right now, I don't want to focus on it anymore. Lets go back to the others.
>>40545591'I want to tell you, no, I must tell you, to protect you, but here and now is not ideal, not safe. When is it ever ideal though...'"... I'll let you know when, if, I'm ready, but not right here. Sorry for ruining your (coat/cloak). We should probably head back in."
>>40545622>>40545664'I want to tell you, no, I must tell you, to protect you, but here and now is not ideal, not safe. When is it ever ideal though...'"Maybe someday, but... not right now, I'll let you know when, if, I'm ready, I don't want to focus on it anymore," You tell her, "Sorry for ruining your coat. Let's go back to the others."She nods and helps you up from the floor, leading you inside where you find the others anxiously waiting but she gives everyone a look and they all seem to relax."So... now that we tried the alcohol do you want to do anything else," Kobelek asks everyone, "We could also stay here and have a few more drinks."What do you do?
>>40545855"Maybe-"We stop and think as we consider what we were about to do, as innocent as it was: ordering a little bit of joy to chase away some of the negative emotions. We don't entertain the idea of another drink for now, reasoning more strong emotion won't aid our battered psyche."Chasing away ones sorrows with drink can be quite dangerous. What you have could be a delightful party drink, or the ruination of kingdoms, as with any brew. I was hasty before with Anger, but Joy in a bottle can be just as insidious if left unchecked."We look to Tanssija, Smoke, and Dawyn."Drink if you wish to, but I've had my fill for the moment. They were pleasant overall."After dipping our head briefly towards Ledibwg, we address Kobelek."I would like to see the flora you mentioned, if that would work."
>>40545855I think I've had my fill of drinks for the moment, though if we could have a sealed bottle for later I would appreciate it. Everyone is free to try whatever drinks if they wish.Taking back our weapons we hold our masters silver sword especially close to ourselves.Thank you for holding onto these for me Kobelek.
>>40545855"I think I had my fill. I will say, with a bit of testing, I do see emotions being used for potions. If anger can be released slowly, I can see it increasing strength, or happiness increasing energy. I'm sure there's a lot more that can be done, but it would be a good way to utilize emotions for non changelings."
>Luscinia cries on Dawyn's shoulder, letting it out after that drink surfaced those awful memories.>"Luscinia. Since when did you become so weak minded?">That's voice was the unmistakenable voice of her Master.>Hearing this, Luscinia looks up and sees her master in plain view.>"M-Master?">She lets go of Dawyn. Dawyn was still as a statue. Everyone was completely still as of time stopped for everyone except for her and Master.>"A Necromancer needs to be in control of their emotions. Their undead will react in accordance. They will kill when you don't command them to, or will hesitate to do your bidding.">Master then trots off.>"Master? Master!">Luscinia gallops towards him, only to fade when she catches up to him.>"I'm dead, Luscinia.">Luscinia looks towards the direction of the voice. Master stands in front of a distant cave. Luscinia continues to gallop towards him.>"You've forgotten what it means to be a Necromancer. I didn't die for you to hide what you are. It's time to stop sobbing and start acting. Or was my sacrifice all in vain?">Luscinia manages to reach her master, all for him to vanish again. Luscinia had to back pedal as she realizes she's near a cliff. Down the cliff were bodies. Bodies of hundreds of Changelings piled up and left to rot.>"SILVER!">From behind Luscinia, time starts again as Dawyn glides down and lands next to her.>"Silver, what happened? You just bolted shouting 'Master' what was that about?">Dawyn looks down the hole to see the pile of Changeling bodies. She looked visibly pale.>Luscinia didn't know how to respond, but she didn't like seeing her marefriend shaken up. She places a hoof around her neck and guides her away from the bodies.>"... Maybe it was the mushroom alcohol not sitting well with me. I'm sorry to make you worry.">'I've haven't been much of a Necromancer, have I? I'm sorry, Master. I promise I haven't given up. You gave me a chance to live, and I'm not taking it for granted. I will put your teachings to good use, slowly, but surely.'
>>40545927>>40545945>>40546101"Maybe-"You stop and then think as you consider what you were about to do, as innocent of a thing as it was: ordering a little bit of joy to chase away some of the negative emotions.

Kobelek nods."Do you want us to come along," Smoke asks, "We can, if you want."What do you do?
>>40548357"No, it's okay. You two are ready to return to the surface. Dawyn and Kolebek will be with me, so I'll be fine."
>>40548568"No, it's okay," You shake your head at him, "You two are ready to return to the surface. Dawyn and Kobelek will be with me, so I'll be fine.""Alright, Xornet is still going to be with us I think so you can have Kobelek message her if you need anything."You nod as Dawyn moves next to you and the two of you follow Kobelek out of the bar and onto the streets."It's going to be a bit of a walk to get there so..."He trails off for a moment before speaking again, but quietly."Is... everything alright?"What do you do?
>>40548780We smile a little."The thought is appreciated, but truthfully, not entirely. Not for anything you, Dawyn, or anyone else has done, simply memories brought on by emotions. The adventuring life may be fruitful, but it's not always one taken on lightly, or when we're ready."We leave it at that.Brain is blank
>>40548780"... Like I said, it brought back a hard memory, one that I would like to bury and forget about. The drink brought everything back up, and I didn't know how to process it."We stay silent, not wanting to talk about it further. After a couple moments we speak up again."...I noticed you acted shy around Ledibwg. Were you thinking about asking her out?"
Stopping for the night, sorry for disappearing I was playing Magic with my Saturday group. Tomorrow I'm going to be starting a bit late because fall break has started and I want to spend the break with my family, so they'll be helping me move a few things from my dorm so I can stay with them for the week. Also have DnD tomorrow unless it gets cancelled last minute.Have a good night or day!Magic the Gathering was a bit frustrating tonight. Didn't do good the first game and I got absolutely destroyed in the second game which was my first 1v1. First game I got Blackblade early only for it to get immediately destroyed by another player as soon as I played it. Second game I drew Blackblade on my first draw and played it again only for it to be destroyed by the same card on the same turn I played it by the same player. Besides Blackblade I wasn't getting any good draws and I was playing against a deck where they are able to pull out a ridiculous amount of token creatures each turn.
>>40549943It sounds like you were against Control. Mix that with tokens, and it sounds like a Blue/Black Deck. Unless they somehow manage to make Blue/White have armies? That's more of a Pure White and Green/White thing. Assuming an Instant destroyed the card, the best way to counter that is to simply not play it right away. It's tempting to do so, I know, but wait until your opponent has used up their mana. That way they can't counter your play.If it was a Sorcery or ability, you'll need some Instances of your own. I don't know what deck you're paying, but I'm sure there's a card you can add to your deck. Assuming it's Blackblade Reforged you're mentioning, naturally that's going to be an instant threat that needs to be taken care of. Bait your opponent with lesser or equal threats until they can't do anything and are forced to let you keep it. It's all about timing.
>>40550089It was a green/white deck. I was thinking that it would be alright to play because 'no way he'll have the same exact card as last time, this is a new game and we shuffled everything'.I'll try to remember that, still new at Magic.>>40548869>>40548918You smile a little at Kobelek."The thought is appreciated, but truthfully, not entirely. Not for anything you, Dawyn, or anyone else has done, simply that it brought back a hard memory and one I would like to bury and forget about. The drink brought everything back up, and I didn't know how to process it," You say, "The adventuring life may be fruitful, but it's not always one taken on lightly, or when we're ready."You leave it at that as you fall silent with everyone else. After several moments you speak up again."...I noticed you acted shy around Ledibwg. Were you thinking about asking her out?""Y-You noticed that," He asks, "...I've been wanting to ask her out for a long time, she's a great Changeling in a lot of different aspects. Not sure if what we did could complicate things a bit."What do you do?
>>40551542 That's peculiar. Usually Green/White has defensive counters. All though it wouldn't be too far-fetched to have cards that destroy artifacts. Then again, I don't know the current meta. "I don't think so. She looked happy to see you. She didn't act cold, and even made a few jokes. I think you still have a shot."
>>40551542It could, she is bound to hear about it if what I've read about bartenders getting told all sorts of rumors is true. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't try.
>>40551542Didn't you think the same way with us?
>>40551638>>40551688>>40552058"Didn't you think the same way with us?" You ask."...Yeah, kinda." He admits."She is bound to hear about it if what I've read about bartenders getting told all sorts of rumors is true, but she looked happy to see you," You tell him, "She didn't act cold, and even made a few jokes. I think you still have a shot.""You think so?""I think so as well," Dawyn agrees, "Next time you should ask her, I'm sure she'll say yes."He smiles a little at the two of you and, while still moving, wraps a leg around the both of you in a hug."Thank you, I'll be sure to tell her next time I see her."What do you do?
>>40552451Whatever gets said it's better then never asking. No one ever knows when they won't have the chance to ask anymore.
Stopping for the night. Have a summary for tonight, though I'm not sure what to title it so I won't.So it starts with Naltaal and the remaining members deciding to get their fortunes read from Celia. Theo goes first and he gets his fortune by thinking of the first memory he can remember, the freshest memory he has, and then finally his hopes, wants, and fears of the future through a crystal ball that shows it. His fortune is that his future is dark, but trying to runaway from the darkness will only lead to pain. Naltaal is next and gets her fortune read via Celia rolling some bones and reading that though that's after Naltaal answers that home and family is what she wants to know. After rolling she gets a good fortune, there will be frustrations in the future but there will be a happy ending waiting for her in the end. Eridis is last and he gets a card reading like Amafrey and Polya, his fortune is pretty neutral and his future is uncertain. Everyone then splits off to do their own thing for the day.Amafrey and Polya go to do that cadaver side quest and end up spending 30-60 minutes in the farming district of Laloc looking at dogs to help sniff out cadavers, using magic to talk with an older dog that keeps getting returned name Tipper, and then adopting him because he's free and to see if he can help with the cadaver stuff.Eridis and Theo go to a carpenter to see if they can get Naltaal's couch fixed, turns out it can but it's not an easy fix since it's upholstery. Bringing it over will be hard and Eridis wants to make it up to her by fixing it himself, so he takes a quick lesson on how to fix it before the two go to do so. They do fix it, kinda, the support is still broken but they used three different supports to hold it together for now so it's usable again. Theo did break a vase in the process of helping Eridis though. Naltaal spends the time catching up with Kimbal. He asks her what she's doing with a Roth and he tells her that she got married to him which he's surprised by. Naltaal asks about the rest of her family where things continue to deviate from how it originally was with her original group.Kimbal and her Mom never stopped looking for her though how they wanted to find her was different. Kimbal wanted to stay in Althea while her Mom wanted to get her family in Craydorn to help. This led to the two splitting with Kimbal staying in Laloc and her Mom going back to her family in Krovale in Craydorn and becoming a Knight of Sintis once more. Embar, her younger brother, stayed with Kimbal until he grew up and decided to go live with their Mom and become a Knight of Sintis as well to the fear of Kimbal. Embar is still very much a bookish and quiet person which doesn't mesh with a military lifestyle.And that was the session. Her family stuff has deviated quite a bit from the original of her Mom dying of a broken heart and Embar running off to join the Knights without telling anyone.
>>40552451"Good. Relationships don't start until you ask them out. You should remember that in the future. We're rooting for you."
>>40552451We hug him back."Just be yourself. It has worked out well so far, based on what I've seen.">>40552730Afternoon, Pluto!
>>40552517>>40553082>>40554041You hug him back in response."Whatever gets said it's better then never asking. No one ever knows when they won't have the chance to ask anymore," You tell him, "Just be yourself. It has worked out well so far, based on what I've seen. You should remember that in the future. We're rooting for you.""Thank you, both of you," He smiles, "Come on, let's go see some nature."The trek does take some time as you go through the same way you came in and then along a path into the mushroom forest. The trip was beautiful through this area as well, trotting underneath large mushrooms that have grown as high as the trees on the surface and even smaller ones that acted as bushes or smaller plants. After some time he stops and looks over at the two of you."Well, here we are."You and Dawyn step forward a bit and look around. In front of you was a small meadow of hoof high, greenish-red mushrooms that overlooked a cliff with a rumbling waterfall."It's beautiful..." Dawyn comments.What do you do?
>>40554378"It really is. To think a properly flourished ecosystem is underground. This can give Alln Lenora some competition. [The Court nature goddess] out did herself."We study the area to make an illusion later for Hannu while also looking for Ol Vines. It never hurts to have more.
>>40554378We spend some time just taking it in before saying anything. It truly is quite a sight. I understand why you'd come here.
>>40554409>>40554500You spend some time just taking everything in before saying something."It truly is quite a sight. I understand why you'd come here. To think a properly flourished ecosystem is underground. This can give Alln Lenora some competition," You say, "Ganymede out did himself."You gaze over the area so that you could commit it to memory to make an illusion of it for Hannu later. You also look around for Ol Vines where you spot three vines hanging nearby.Kobelek trots into the meadow and over to the edge where he sits down. He then looks back at the two of you and pats the spots next to him."I like to come here when I feel stressed, helps me relax and think."What do you do?
>>40554578We eventually do walk over and join him sitting next to him.It is apparently dangerous out here is it not? You've not encountered anything out here yet?
>>40554578"I can understand why. It's a very nice place. Ever brought any dates here? It would be a good place for a picnic."We look over to the waterfall."I can even see drawing a certain dragon mare by the waterfall~"(Debated on my post.)
>>40554676>>40554820"I can understand why. It's a very nice place. Ever brought any dates here? It would be a good place for a picnic.""Plenty of times. It's a favorite for a lot of them."You trot over and sit down next to him, Dawyn doing the same a few seconds later."It is apparently dangerous out here, is it not? You've not encounter anything out here yet?""This close to the hive, you don't have to really worry about any threats," He shakes his head, "And if something is brave enough it's usually a small thing that can't cause much harm."You nod a bit and look over at the waterfall for several seconds, eventually speaking up once more."I can see drawing a certain Dragon mare by the waterfall~." You say to Dawyn."Hmm... that could be fun," Dawyn agrees after a moment, "Being drawn was fun, but would you be fine with us doing that, Kobelek?""I have no issues with it." He shrugs.What do you do?
>>40555634we smile and kiss Kolebek on the cheek."Thank you. It's probably not how you expected to spend your day, but I appreciate it."Then we give Dawyn a kiss."You're a natural beauty, Dawyn, and I'm happy to capture that essence on paper."We grab our journal and charcoal(?)."I think a side portrait would look good. Do you mind taking off your cloak?""I think it'll look good if you wet your mane as if you just finished bathing. You're looking at the distance with a content, yet wistful look.""Would you like to add or change anything, Kolebek?"
Stopping for the night. Summary from Spelljammer tonight: Shar Attack.So Tal'cha wanting to run off to check in on her brother after witnessing the explosions rock Bral wasn't a problem for anyone, Csilla even wanted to check on him as well. Before that though the two rush to Ozamata's bar since it's across the street from Csilla's place and it just got blown up. The two do actually find Ozamata in the wreckage pretty quick with several stab wounds, a cut in his neck, and blown up, but miraculously alive. He was the only one in the bar when it got blown up so the rest of his group is fine. After a bit of healing from Csilla he tells the two that he was attacked by some Shar worshippers, an evil goddess who wants to destroy everyone by plunging all into eternal darkness, so very much not good people. Once Ozamata is fine the two run off to check on Tik-kat'cha and he's fine, the thing that actually blew up at the docks was the Dockmaster building. He wants to help, but the bracelet keeps him from doing so and trying to convince the pirates just has the captain take Tik-kat'cha away and declare this isn't his problem. Tal'cha is pissed, but there isn't much she or Csilla can do so they rush to the temple district instead.Back to Fueryon and Pancake and their Shar situation in the temple, Bri helps them escape from the Shar worshippers, the Hexblade, and Death Cleric but Bri goes down in the process of helping the two. Pancake and Fueryon escape and they run into Neemo where the three decide to head over to the nearby Mythra temple since there is a bunch of screaming from there.Tal'cha and Csilla run into them there and it turns out the temple is currently the center of of a bunch of beefed up Ghouls, Skeletons, Zombies, and a surprise thing that's inside the church causing havoc. The fight is fun and challenging though the undead are cleared out pretty quick until they finally get inside the church. Turns out the thing inside is a Frost Giant Skeleton that attacked when it's attention falls upon everyone. Csilla and Tal'cha almost die to it, Csilla from a frost ability it had that dealt 10d6 cold damage and paralysis and Tal'cha basically gets flattened by his axe in one swing. Everyone lives though, the guards spend a bit questioning everyone about what happened in the Celestian temple with Bri and then let us on our way. Csilla and Tal'cha return to her place to find Ozamata had invited himself in and is there to explain what the hell just happened.And the session ended with everyone getting to level 5. Overall, I liked the fight with the undead, Tal'cha managed to kill quite a few of them even if a lot of them were beefed up a bit. I had fun with it. I'm just wondering what the hell Ozamata's explanation for all of this is going to be.
>>40555634We probably shouldn't take too long on this though I would like to, we can't linger too long or the others will wonder what is happening.
>>40555939>>40556543You smile and kiss Kobelek on the cheek."Thank you. It's probably not how you expected to spend your day, but I appreciate it."You then lean over and give Dawyn a kiss."We probably shouldn't take too long on this than I would like to, we can't linger too long or the others will wonder what is happening.""Right," She nods, "We can just do a quick sketch."You quickly grab your journal and charcoal from your bag and look back at her."I think a side portrait would look good. Do you mind taking off your cloak?""I don't mind at all."She unclips her cloak and lets it slide off of her shoulders and back, leaving her completely nude once more."Where do you want me to be?""I think it'll look good if you wet your mane as if you just finished bathing. You're looking out at the distance with a content, yet wistful look."She nods and trots the short distance over over to the river feeding the waterfall.*SPLOSH*She dunks her head down underneath the water and quickly pulls her head back up, shaking her head around before she sits herself down near the waterfall and looking off into the distance."Would you like to add or change anything, Kobelek?" You ask him."Hmm... maybe she could have her back face us a bit?"What do you do?
>>40557746"Good call, bring attention to her wings and tail while hinting at her hips and thighs. Could also give the impression of stumbling across her, unable to tell if we're interrupting her, or have her invite us to join. Did you catch all that?"We get to work on drawing the edges of the background, framing her within the drawing while she still settles.(If she's laying on her side)"Could you extend one of your hindlegs a little, so it's more in line with your tail?"
>>40557746"Yeah, that'll look good, it'll really show the expression better. Also, can you curl your tail around you?"With the pose, we begin sketching, drawing her content pose that's taking in all of the beauty around her. We do our best to replicate the shine and glimmer of her scales being reflected by the luminescent mushrooms and draw the rest of her beautiful body. We then draw everything around her with the waterfall being the background focus and the surrounding mushrooms and mossy cave bed. We decided to get a little creative and draw some of the mushrooms in the foreground to center Dawyn more in the frame and to give the viewer a taste of the environment."Done. A natural beauty surrounded by natural beauty. I'm proud of this one."
>>40557782>>40557814"Yeah, that'll look good, bring attention to her wings and tail while hinting at her hips and thighs, it'll also really show the expression better. Could also give the impression of stumbling across her, unable to tell if we're interrupting her, or have her invite us to join. Did you catch all that?""Yep!""Could you also curl your tail around you?"She angles her back towards you a bit and curls her tail around herself. With that pose you get to work sketching her. You do your best to replicate the shine and glimmer of her scales being reflected by the luminescent mushrooms and draw the rest of her beautiful body, framing her within the drawing. You then draw everything around her with the waterfall being the background focus and the surrounding mushrooms and mossy cave bed. You soon decide to get a little creative and draw some of the mushrooms in the foreground to center Dawyn more in the frame and to give the viewer of it a taste of the environment."Done. A natural beauty surrounded by natural beauty. I'm proud of this one."Kobelek leans over to look, a smile quickly forms on his face."That looks amazing, Silver! You're a natural artist."Dawyn gets up from her position to trot over and look as well, soon giving you a smile and a kiss."Kobelek is right, it looks great, Silver!"What do you do?
>>40557898Thank you both. I usually just focus on anatomical drawings, I don't have much experience taking down landscapes like this as well.I think though we should probably go. We can't spend too long here unfortunately.
>>40557898We blush from the praise despite ourself."Thank you. I'm starting to think I received the wrong cutie mark. I'm glad you both like it.""Are there other places around the forest you like to visit?""Before we go, would it be okay if I take some of the vines?"If we get the ok, we grab a knife and harvest some Ol Vines.
>>40557937>>40558095You blush from the praise despite yourself."Thank you both. I usually focus on anatomical drawings, I don't have much experience taking down landscapes like this as well. Though I'm starting to think I received the wrong cutie mark.""A cutie mark doesn't mean you can't have multiple talents." Dawyn points out."Are there other places around the forest you like to visit?" You ask Kobelek."Not really, this is the only nice spot I know.""I think we should probably go then. We can't spend too long here unfortunately," You say as you get up, "Before we do go, would it be okay if I take some of the vines?""The vines? Yeah, go ahead."With his permission you grab a knife to cut down the Ol Vines and place them in your bag.>three Ol Vines added to your inventoryOnce you're done Kobelek trots up to you."I told Xornet we're done, but she wanted to ask if she should bring Smoke and Tanssija up if the two of you want to go."What do you do?
>>40558435They can leave when they like, no need to spoil their fun if they are having a good time. Just inform them that we're headed back to the surface and we'll be at the inn when they want to join us.
>>40558444"They can leave when they like, no need to spoil their fun if they are having a good time," You reply, "Just inform them that we're heading back to the surface and we'll be at the inn when they want to join us.""Alright, I'll bring the two of you back up then."He waves for the two of you to follow and then trots into the mushroom forest. You and Dawyn follow him through the mushrooms, back to where the cave meets the mines, up through the mines, and finally back to the entrance of the mines.Even though it's still cloudy and raining you have to blink your eyes as they adjust to the light once more. It is still raining, but it has let up significantly from the downpour earlier. It was now a much lighter rain, not one that would drench you as soon as you step outside."Welp, here we are," Kobelek sighs before looking at the two of you, "Uh, thanks for... entertaining my curiosity. I'm glad I got to meet the two of you."What do you do?
>>40558574We look to Dawyn and nudge our head to Kolebek. We lift our legs to give him a group hug."I glad I got to meet you too, and likewise. Thank you for the good time and showing us around your home. I hope to visit again some day."We let go and remembered something."Oh, and apologies. We didn't finish cleaning your home. I would recommend you get that done before inviting Ledibwg over."We then look outside.'Right, forgot about the rain, and we're naked beneath our cloaks. Hopefully it's not too cold.'We look over to Dawyn."Do you want to brave the chance of being exposed, or would you like some clothes?"If the latter, we use disguise to make the both of us decent. We then hold her hoof into ours as we make it back to the inn.
>>40558574Hopefully not for the last time. Who knows, our travels may have us come back at some point but I'm glad I got to meet you as well. I learned a lot, it was quite entertaining and I'm glad you had fun with my curiosity~
>>40558574"I'm glad to have met you as well, Kobelek. The future is unknown, so maybe we'll meet again. And don't be so modest, you sated our curiosities as well. Good luck with Ledibwg.">>40558773Afternoon, Pluto!
>>40558668>>40559275You look over at Dawyn and nudge your head towards Kobelek. She gets your intentions as she trots towards him and gives him a hug, with you following a second later."Hopefully not for the last time. Who knows, our travels may have us come back at some point but I'm glad I got to meet you as well. I learned a lot, it was quite entertaining and I'm glad you had fun with my curiosity~."You let go as you remember something."Oh, and apologies. We didn't finish cleaning your home. I would recommend you get that done before inviting Ledibwg over.""No need to apologize, I'll get that done before then."You smile a little and then look outside. From the amount of light you guess that it was around the late afternoon or early evening, just in time for dinner.'Right, forgot about the rain, and we're naked beneath our cloaks. Hopefully it's not too cold.'You look over to Dawyn who was looking out at the rain as well."Do you want to brave the chance of being exposed, or would you like some clothes?" You ask her."Some clothes would be good."You cast Disguise to make both of you decent before taking her hoof in yours and trotting into the rain. As you do, Dawyn turns around and shouts to Kobelek."Thanks for everything, Kobelek! I had a fun time!""I as well!" He shouts back to her.The two of you move through the hills and finally return to Mineshi and the inn you're staying at. The two of you head through the doors of the inn where you get blasted by warm air, a lively atmosphere, and some music. Most of the tables were taken up by groups of Unicorns dining and having a good time with each other and towards the back of the dining area you could see two Unicorns, one playing a lute and the other a small hoof drum."Bit lively tonight." Dawyn comments, looking over at you with a small smile at the sight.What do you do?
>>40560337We smile in return, though our state of dress lingers in the back of our mind. Even if we don't mind, and others don't notice, being arrested for public indecency seems a poor way to end the evening."The weather is less dreary, and I imagine news has spread, so there is plenty to celebrate. Perhaps we should retreat to our room for a little bit though. Merriment and close proximity could be, troubling for us. I almost miss the Hive already."
>>40560462You smile in return, but your state of dress does linger in the back of your mind. Even if you didn't really mind it, and others don't notice it, being arrested for public indecency would be a poor way to end the evening."The weather is less dreary, and I imagine news has spread, so there is plenty to celebrate," You say, "Perhaps we should retreat to our room for a little bit though. Merriment and close proximity could be, troubling for us. I almost miss the Hive already.""Somebody already going a bit native, hmm~," Dawyn teases, "...You are right though, let's head upstairs."The two of you reach the stairs with little issue and head up them, getting to your room and heading inside through the door. Once you were both in the privacy of your room, Dawyn trots over to the bed and sits down on it while letting out a quiet, but tired sigh."So, is there anything you want to do?" She asks.As she asks this you feel your bags move a bit, looking down to see Armas poke his head out and then worm his way out to perch himself on the dresser.What do you do?
>>40560639Well I did want to compare the notes we made on changelings, but we could also read some more of the books. Might be useful for both of use to have a wider selection of spells to draw on. Was there anything you wanted to
>>40560675I'd imagine we're probably hungry.
>>40560639'He's learned to anchor himself and move objects. Just a soul, but becoming a spirit already. Does having consciousness as a soul accelerate the process? Would he be able to become a spirit on his own?'"Nothing much comes to mind. I'm okay with just snuggling on the bed and calling it a night."

Was there anything you wanted to do?""Well, I don't know about you but I'm pretty hungry," She replies, "We can get dressed and get some food downstairs if you want."At the mention of food your stomach growls a bit.What do you do?
>>40560909That... Sounds nice. Come to think of it we should have tried some changeling food while we were down there but that'll have to be for the next visit i suppose. We slide on our bra and a nightgown under our cloak then head downstairs to get some food.
>>40560909"... We have been active, haven't we? Food does sound nice. Would you like to join me?">>40560960This, but also:We then use illusions to fix our makeup.If she joins:"Want me to give you some 'makeup' too?"
>>40560960>>40561479"That... sounds nice. We have been active, haven't we? Come to think of it we should have tried some Changeling food while we were down there but that'll have to be for the next visit I suppose," You say, "Would you like to join me?""I would love to."As she gets back up you slide on your bra and a nightgown underneath your cloak, then using some illusions to fix your makeup."Want me to give you some 'makeup' too?""Sure, just not a lot."You nod and just give her a bit of makeup before the two of you head downstairs and settle down to eat. As you wait for the food that you ordered the entrance to the inn opens as Smoke and Tanssija trot in. They spot the two of you and trot over to sit down with you."Hey," Smoke greets the two of you, "Was the trip back uneventful?"What do you do?
>>40561522Yes, unfortunately we don't have any tales to regale you with on weird beasts we ran into and fought on the way back. How about you two? How was your trip?
>>40561542"Yes, unfortunately we don't have any tales to regale you with on weird beasts we ran into and fought on the way back," You say, "How about you two? How was your trip?""Similarly uneventful," Smoke replies, "The hive was good though.""I'm kinda impressed with how structured they are down there," Tanssija comments, "Though I suppose you have to be considering the dangers they face down there."What do you do?
>>40561784"Especially considering you won't see those dangers without mining or have a break in. Then you have to worry about fighting in closed quarters with civilians surrounding them.""It's a shame they do have such dangers there. The wildlife down there is gorgeous. I would argue it rivals Alln Lenora's. But alas, another beautiful place forbidden for Ponies."
Stopping for the night. Thanksgiving is tomorrow so I'm not going to post anything, gonna spend the day with my family.Have a good night or day!
>>40561913Goodnight, Pluto! And happy Thanks Giving!On a side note for the anons, I just remembered someone suggest we try to use Suggest on Dawyn for her to have pleasant dreams.At the same time, with our episode earlier, she could pull an Uno Reverse on us.
>>40561784"I almost wish I had wings, to explore the architecture a little more myself, but I can contend with testimony, or at least the view from the ground."We look to Dawyn, briefly recalling how she looked as she took off overhead towards the nursery."The elevated Hive structure makes sense though, as it's easier to fend off a flying or climbing foe from above.">>40561913Morning, Pluto! And happy Thanksgiving!>>40562238Feel like that could've been me? Tangentially at least. I'm down for exploring that.
>>40561784I'm not really versed in architectural design but it is all very impressive.
This ended up being wholesome instead of lewd. Sorry about that.>Luscinia is surrounded by law enforcement.>It was a set-up to place her on trial for the practice of Necromancy.>With no other options, Luscinia breaks her Homeward Branch to return to her tower.Greetings, Master." One of her Golem Sentries bellows.>Luscinia nods in acknowledgement and trots inside.>She climbs up the stairs as various undead acknowledges her with "Master." as she passes by.>She reaches to her bedroom and plops herself on her bed, feeling annoyed and betrayed.>"Master, you're back." Ubiquitous greeted with glee.>Ubiquitous is a monster she created with Changeling attributes. The souls that animate Ubiquitous were the souls of past lovers. Ubiquitous can transform themselves into who they once were and have the appropriate soul drive the body, making them exactly like they were when they were alive.>Ubiquitous joins Luscinia on the bed and starts to stroke her back.>"The discussion didn't go well?">Luscinia just groans in response.>"Is there anyone one of us you would like to see?">"You can choose. I just want your company.">A moment passes, then Ubiquitous bursts into green flames. Around Luscinia is a claw that's connected to a leg with scales. Luscinia turns around to see Dawyn with her patient smile and caring eyes.>Luscinia's heart pangs for a moment, remembering her death. A Gigas speared her heart. Luscinia resurrected her and returned her home, but when Dawyn's parents found out about her resurrection, she was disowned and to return to Luscinia in tears.>Now she lies there with her, as if she never died and is there for the Mare she loves.>Luscinia wraps her legs around Dawyn.>"I didn't get a chance to talk. They only wanted to capture me for being who I am. Why can't anyone see the benefits of Necromancy?">Dawyn holds her tighter.>"They're just scared is all. It'll take time. It took me a while to adjust, but look at us. We're still together, and I'm no longer afraid."Dawyn gives Luscinia a kiss on the cheek.>"That goes for all of us.">Dawyn turns into Hannu.>"She's right. There's nothing to fear.">He then turns into Silver Lining.>"You just need to keep trying. Show the world what good Necromancy can do.">She then turns into Snowdrift.>"You gave me an Heir after my demise and raised him right. Now he's off on his own adventure. You're a good Mare, Lusci.">He then turns back into Ubiquitous.>"We all love you and know you can do it!">Luscinia smiles and gives them a kiss.>"Thank you, everyone. I love you too."
>>40564979Don't apologize for making something so wholesome like this.That said, I am curious what it could've been, as well as about her sister being one of her lovers based on being part of Ubiquitous, or if it's just something they don't discuss, along with being mildly tempted to mess around with some Spirit dick.
>>40565110A while back, I had the thought of a changeling living with Luscinia who gets payed by feeding off of her emotions by being her therapist with benefits. Then I thought what if they 'were' her lovers and Ubiquitous was born. The original direction with Ubiquitous was to have them turn into Dawyn as she lends an ear while stripping Luscinia down and teasing her with her tail.I didn't consider Silver Lining to be her sister, just a doppelganger with no relation. Originally though, I had Snowdrift be the third transformation, followed by Queen Fazmida proclaiming she fornicated Luscinia to birth a new heir for her hive. Something about it didn't sit well with me though, and changed it up. I thought about having the joke(?) character Pretty Mc.Bigdeal, daughter of Stuffy Mc.Bigdeal, praise her from being saved from siring the foals of brutes and teaching her about real love, but I felt that may have been confusing and not really related to necromancy.

>>40567704"Probably more notes than I can use, yet it still doesn't feel like enough in a way."For a moment, we consider the feasibility of copying and displaying a memory using magic, the information that could be preserved and displayed with such a method."Was there anything in particular down there that stood out to you?"
>>40567704I've gotten as much as I likely could have, You can take a look if you want though I'm not sure it'd be to your tastes for the most part.
>>40567704"And then some. It was an excellent study date for us. The most fascinating thing for me was knowing the males lay eggs and the female fertilizes them. This can mean a changeling and pony can have a foal or grub with parents that are the same gender."
>>40567782>>40567821>>40567835"Probably more notes than I can use and then some. It was an excellent study date for us. The most fascinating thing for me was knowing the males lay eggs and the females fertilizes them. This can mean a Changeling and Pony can have a foal or grub with parents that are the same gender.""That's quite fascinating." Smoke comments."You can take a look if you want though I'm not sure it'd be to your tastes."You pause as you spend a moment to consider the feasibility of copying and displaying a memory using magic, the information that could be preserved and displayed with such a method. You were sure there are ways to do that with certain crystals and spells, but that'll probably be something you ask Copper."Was there anything in particular down there that stood out to either of you?" You ask."The communal nursery was interesting to me," Tanssija says, "Though it doesn't sound right to me that the parents don't get to take care of them for the first few months of life, but it's a different culture and all that.""I thought it was strange that the Queen looks so different from everyone else, almost like she was a different specie of Changeling," He says, "There are part insect though and I guess insects do that, right?"What do you do?
>>40567958That could be true, it's possible that she was using her powers to transform into that form for whatever reason.
>>40567958"It could be an evolution trait. She is also over a century old and very pretty. Without knowing how they boon a new heir, it'll be difficult to know where and why the queen would yield different traits. As for children, it's possible parents keep in touch with them through the hivemind, but it is strange they don't spend time with them directly."
>>40567958>>40568123>Evolution trait"She is the twelfth heir and the Queen or King can live for centuries. It's possible royal changelings could evolve slower than their subjects. Perhaps all changelings looked like she did once, but have evolved to adapt in populated and enclosed spaces."
>>40567982>>40568123>>40568237"That could be true, it's possible that she was using her powers to transform into that form for whatever reason," You say, "It could also be an evolutionary trait. She is also over a century old and very pretty. Without knowing how they boon a new heir, it'll be difficult to know where and why the Queen would yield different traits. Though she is the twelfth heir and the Queen or King can live for centuries. It's possible Royal Changelings could evolve slower than their subjects. Perhaps all Changelings looked like she did once, but have evolved to adapt in populated and enclosed spaces.""Possibly, though we would have to ask Queen Fazmida about it." Smoke shrugs."As for children, it's possible parents keep in touch with them through the Hivemind, but it is strange they don't spend time with them directly.""Maybe the Changelings are just busy?" Tanssija suggests.Nobody really responds to this as the food arrives and everyone starts eating, but it's eventually broken by Dawyn."Are we continuing to Sibashika tomorrow?" Dawyn asks."The rain is letting up, I believe, so Copper is probably planning to leave tomorrow," Smoke replies, "And we would have to leave tomorrow to make it in time for Radonitsa."What do you do?
>>40568684I'm almost glad. I want to finish this job, I think I prefer taking trips just to the next town rather then longer caravans like this.
>>40568684"The roads will probably still be muddy. Would you be alright walking in your armor tomorrow, Smoke? You may need to watch from the roof otherwise."
>>40568729>>40568780"I'm almost glad. I want to finish this job, I think I prefer taking trips just to the next town rather then longer caravans like this," You say, "The roads will probably still be muddy. Would you be alright walking in your armor tomorrow, Smoke? You may need to watch from the roof otherwise.""I should be fine," He nods, "Lychny is still very far north, but if you don't want to keep going it probably isn't too late to back out.""We've already made it this far with Copper though." Tanssija points out.What do you do?
>>40568923"It's more that I anticipate us reaching our destination, and being free to pick our course than to be bound along a path. Copper has been a good employer, and the mission is efficient, but we hardly have a chance to linger anywhere. Then again, we have a destination and aren't simply wandering from town to town performing tasks. I suppose it's general impatience over any particular strong dislike."
>>40568923"It's been easy money so far, I don't want to leave him yet. He's also been a good supplier of crystals which I have uses for. The only reason to leave is if we have a purpose that doesn't align with his schedule, and so far, there hasn't been an issue."'Except for Alln Lenora, but there's no reason to bring it up.'
>>40568923No I do want to head to the university, but this has taught me that being able to choose where we go and on what timetable has become something that's important to me. I want to finish the job, but also leaving him on the last day before he would leave would make me feel bad, especially after he waited with Smoke for us.
>>40569025>>40569055>>40569260"No, I do want to head to the university, it's more that I anticipate us reaching our destination and being free to pick our course than to be bound along a path, being able to choose where we go and on what timetable has become something that's important to me," You say, "Copper has been a good employer and a good supplier of crystals which I have uses for, but we hardly have a chance to linger anywhere. Then again, we have a destination and aren't simply wandering from town to town performing tasks."You shake your head a bit."The only reason to leave is if we have a purpose that doesn't align with his schedule, and so far, there hasn't been an issue with that."'Except for Alln Lenora, but there's no reason to bring it up.'"Merchants have schedules they usually have to keep," Smoke nods, "We can keep going with him then and if a problem arises we can try to talk to him."What do you do?
>>40571260"Copper has been quite reasonable, for the most part. I think we would endeavor to tell him well before we'd have to depart, so he'd have a chance to gather another group, but anything urgent enough to require us to do so would likely be with very little notice."
>>40571260That sounds like the right idea.Finish eating out food.
>>40571360>>40571486That sounds like the right idea. Copper has been reasonable, for the most part. I think we would endeavor to tell him well before we'd have to depart, so he'd have a chance to gather another group, but anything urgent enough to require us to do so would likely be with very little notice."You get nods of agreement as you all go back to eating for the next several minutes, nobody speaking up again until the food is gone and your stomachs are full."Alright," Smoke yawns as he gets up and stretches a bit, "I think I might call it a little early. Been a busy day."What do you do?
>>40571783It might be good to get some rest early actually. We'll have to deal with a lot of mud tomorrow so we may as well be rested for it.
>>40571856"It might be good to get some rest early actually," You agree, "We'll have to deal with a lot of mud tomorrow so we may as well be rested for it.""Sounds good to me." Tanssija nods in agreement, getting up as well.The four of you leave the dining area and head back up to your rooms where you and Dawyn go through your routines to get ready for bed and finally clamber into bed together. It only takes a few minutes for you to drift away.Do you dream about anything?
>>40572058Ah, I was hoping to do the hypnosis experiment with Dawyn and talk to Armas for a bit.I did have a few dreams in mind, mostly recommending around the same idea. It was a continuation of sorts to the last dream we had:Dawyn and Luscinia are settled to raise Hannu's fawns together, and...It's now time for them to learn about their royal origin.The fawns discover one of their moms is a Necromancer.The first heir discovers he was blessed with Morena's gifts.
>>40572058Probably a lot of stuff about our master and what happened because of our memories being forcibly drawn to the surface.>>40572081Seconding.>The first heir discovers he was blessed with Morena's gifts.>The first daughter discovers she is 'blessed' by Luscinia's 'gifts'.
>>40572081>>40572099Took a darker turn than I was planning, but I like it too much.After the fun the two of you had with Hannu it was inevitable that the consequences of that night would show themselves. For you and Dawyn that meant that you both became pregnant.That ended your adventuring career early, but neither of you wanted to give the coming fawns up so the two of you decided to settle down in Dawyn's hometown of Arzakhtinsk. Several months later the two of you gave birth to two healthy Half-Deer: a buck from you and a doe from Dawyn. You named the buck Star Chaser and Dawyn named the doe Girnes.It's been a good several years since their birth and while it was stressful at times you haven't ever regret having them nor settling down to raise them with Dawyn. It did make you a bit sad that they haven't been able to meet their father or know of their royal heritage. You were planning to rectify that today though since it was Girnes 10th birthday.Or you were going to do that today.Star Chaser got impatient while waiting for the cake, and he wanted to do something nice for Girnes, so he tried to make the cake himself. When he was trying to get a knife though he was just short enough that he could barely reach it, but not really grab it so the knife fell from where it was kept and the blade embedded itself directly into his neck. The whole house was immediately alerted to what happened and you and Dawyn rushed in to try and heal him, but Star Chaser had lost way too much blood way too quick and died.You weren't going to let his happen though, damn the consequences of it, you weren't going to let your son die like this! Your hooves glow with magic as you begin to cast a Dark Resurrection spell on him, but you stop when you study his soul for a moment.His soul was still within him, but you notice a strand of dark purple magic about the size of a string and moving like an actual string caught in some strong winds, moves to his soul followed by the purple strand wrapping itself vertically around his soul. It takes you less than a second to realize that the strand was Morena's Blessing.As soon as the strand wraps itself around his soul the wound in his neck stops bleeding and starts to close by itself, and his breathing returns as his eyes open up once more and look around confused."...I-Is this...?" He groans softly."C-Chaser?"That was Girnes. Dawyn had tried to stop her from seeing what was happening, but the doe had forced her way over, her teary eyes looking at her brother in disbelief.What do you do?
>>40572439We'd thought of the possibility but we didn't think we'd have it confirmed so soon or like this.We hug Star closer to ourselves shaking slightly as we try to think and come up with nothing.... He's... He's going to be alright. Some of my special healing magic.
>>40572439'Thank you, Morena... Did she explain things to him?'"Give your brother a little space, Girnes dear, he may experience some shock. If he wants a hug, let him initiate, but he's going to be just fine. Chaser, try not to move too quickly, you lost some blood."Our voice is calm, but our body shakes as we grab the knife and all but toss it into the sink, double checking the wound, his soul, and then Girnes' as we pump a little extra healing magic into him. We beckon Dawyn over, trying to get her involved so we can grab a damp rag and start cleaning the birthday buck up.I think it's quite an interesting set up as well. A little surprised that they don't share a birthday, but that'd be unlikely.
>>40572439None of the parenting books in the world could have prepared us for this situation...We feel a mixture of pride for our son, concern for Girnes, worry for Hannu, and nervousness on how to explain this to our wife!Snapping back to the here and now, we feign exhaustion, made easily with the cold sweat we're feeling."Mommy just healed him. He'll be okay, Sweetheart, he'll need some rest though."Before Star Chaser could say anything, we give him a glare, similar to what our master use to do. We scoop him up and take him to his room and close the door before sitting him on his bed."You're not in trouble, though I may need to ground you for playing with knives. That said, I can't be angry at you for obtaining Morena's gifts. I'm proud of you, son."We give him a genuine smile."I'm sure you have many questions, and I'll be happy to answer them, but I need to know how open have you studied and worshipped Necromancy. Do Girnes and Dawyn know?"(I think we would know some of this, but I also get the feeling he may have studied in secret. I'm willing to a things change around to better fit the narrative.)
>>40572523>>40572543>>40572546None of the parenting books in the world could have prepared you for this. You had thought of the possibility but you didn't think you'd have it confirmed so soon or from something like this.'Thank you, Morena... Did she explain things to him?'You carefully wrap Chaser in a hug and bring him closer to you, letting him weakly wrap his hooves around you in return as you shake slightly. You could feel a mixture of pride for your son but also a lot of anxiety as well, concern for little Girnes, worry for Hannu, and nervousness on how you were going to explain this to your wife!Snapping back to reality, you feign exhaustion in front of the two, made easy with the cold sweat covering practically every inch of your body."He's... He's going to be alright. Mommy just healed him. He'll be okay, Sweetheart, he'll need some rest though."Your voice is calm, but your body continues to shake as you grab the knife and toss it into the sink. His wound is healing fine, his soul isn't doing anything strange, and when you look over at Dawyn and Girnes you could see how stunned Dawyn was and the concern, fear, and relief Girnes had for her brother. A beckon from you snaps Dawyn out of it, getting her involved by making her get a damp rag that you take and use to start cleaning the buck up. This allows Girnes to gallop over and hover over Star Chaser."Ishealrighthesgoingtobefineright-""Now, now, give your brother some space, Girnes dear, he may experience some shock," You tell her before she could overwhelm him, "If he wants a hug, let him initiate, but he's going to be just fine. Chaser, try not to move too quickly, you lost some blood.""...Mmkay..." He groans.Girnes steps back from this, her eyes wet and tears beginning to fall as she instead grabs Dawyn tightly. Dawyn hugs her back and gently picks her up."J-Just needs some space, Girney." Dawyn tells her, stepping away with her as her voice cracks slightly.With Dawyn bringing Girnes away you look down at Chaser with a glare, similar to one that Master would give you. You then scoop him up and bring him over to his room, closing the door before setting him on his bed."You're not in trouble, though I may need to ground you for playing with knives. That said, I can't be angry at you for obtaining Morena's gifts. I'm proud of you, son.""...I... I just wanted to make Girnes' birthday cake." He mumbles groggily. You give him a small smile at this."I'm sure you have many questions, and I'll be happy to answer them, but I need to know how open you have studied and worshipped Necromancy. Do Girnes and Dawyn know?""I... I peeked at some of your books about them," He mumbles, "I just thought that they were trophies from your time as a adventurer and Morena was some story with that. I... didn't think she was real."Looks like Morena visited him when he died then.What do you do?
>>40572672'I will be keeping those locked up better in the future then.'"Setting aside the fact that such materials are inappropriate for a young buck like yourself, I'm disappointed you were so careless, both in reading that stuff unsupervised, and not simply asking one of us to cut the cake..."We hug him."But I'm just happy your alive, and a little proud that you have the spark."
>>40572672We're not completely buying it. We sit on the bed next to him."Yet somehow, she was willing to visit you and grant you her gifts? I think you also had some admiration for her as well.""So... What you just experienced was death and resurrection. You can't completely die unless you were burned. This is one of her gifts. Another gift you may experience right away is soul sight. It'll take some time to learn how to control it, but it involves blinking and willing it to appear or disappear. The other gift is that you can command the undead. We can get into the specifics about that when you're feeling better, however, I must stress the importance that you keep all of this between the two us. If more ponies know, you can be in a lot of trouble that's beyond what I or Mama (Dawyn) can fix."
>>40572756>>40572824'I will be keeping those locked up better in the future then.'You sit down on the bed so that you were next to him."Yet somehow, she was willing to visit you and grant you her gifts? I think you also had some admiration for her as well.""...Well... She did sound cool." He admits."Setting aside the fact that such materials are inappropriate for a young buck like yourself, I'm disappointed you were so careless, both in reading that stuff unsupervised, and not simply asking one of us to cut the cake...""Sorry."Still, you reach down and give him a gentle hug."But, I'm happy you're alive, and a little proud that you have the spark," You tell him, "So, what you just experienced was death and resurrection.

If more Ponies know, you can be in a lot of trouble that's beyond what I or Mama can fix.""Right, Morena told me a bit of all that already."He then lets out a yawn, his eyes drifting shut as he rolls over onto his side and nuzzles up to his pillow."Is it okay if we can talk about this a little later?"What do you do?
Stopping for the night. Gonna start late tomorrow cause I'm heading back to my dorm for the last two weeks plus finals in my semester. Shouldn't take as long as it did as heading back home last Sunday.Have a good night or day!
>>40572890Yes... Though, do keep this between us for now, I have a lot of thinking to do.
>>40572890"Yes, of course, buddy. Rest up and there will be cake when you wake up. You'll need the sugar."With that, we tuck him in and give him a kiss on the forehead."Sweet dreams."We trot out of the room.
Back in my room on campus, a bit nervous to be here again despite it only being a week. DnD will hopefully help me relax a bit.>>40573323>>40574349"Yes, of course, buddy. Though, do keep this between us for now, I have a lot of thinking to do."He just nods tiredly at this. You then tuck him in and give him a kiss on the forehead."Sweet dreams and there will be bake when you wake up. You'll need the sugar."He doesn't respond this time, immediately falling to sleep. You carefully get up from the bed and trot out of the room just in time for Dawyn to slowly trot over, still holding Girnes in her legs. Girnes was clutching at her tightly, eyes teary and distant as she stares into the distance. She, sadly, won't be forgetting what happened anytime soon."Is... Is Chaser alright?" Dawyn asks quietly.What do you do?
>>40574970Our heart aches setting our girls in so much distress. We make our way over to them and give them both a kiss."Chaser has lost a lot of blood, and may experience a bit of dizziness, but he'll be fine after some rest and cake."We look down at Girnes."Your brother will be fine, Sweetheart. He'll need some sugar to help build his blood back up. Will you be okay with sharing some of your cake?"
>>40574970We hug both Daeyn and Girnes."Chaser will be just fine, he's just resting for the moment. We may have to stress the importance of fire safety though."We change the subject rather pointedly, hoping Dawyn will make the connection between the warning and our next topic."He has been reading some of my old books. I knew we were raising a pair of bibliophiles, but some of those books really aren't suitable for fawns, no matter how clever. Now, how about we have a little cake?"'We really should contact Hannu. He'd want to know how his fawns are doing, even if he can't be involved.'Good luck with D&D, Pluto!Unrelated, just realized bugger teats are almost certainly a reality, but we might not get the chance to deal with them.>>40575063Seconding!
>>40574970He's going to recover, he'll need some fruit to help produce extra bl- er... make some of the stuff he lost but eventually he'll be back to almost normal. I'm... Going to go clean up before stains are left where this happened.
Didn't get to DnD for very long. DM's internet decided to die so I ended up booting Minecraft up for the first time in years and playing on the server the group made.We're gonna try to do a makeup session Wednesday >>40575063>>40575095>>40575518Your heart aches seeing your girls in so much distress. You make your way over and hug both of them."Chaser has lost a lot of blood, and may experience a bit of dizziness, but he'll be fine after some rest and cake," You tell them, "He'll also need some fruit to help produce extra bl- er... make some of the stuff he lost but eventually he'll be back to almost normal.

He'd want to know how his fawns are doing, even if he can't be involved."She nods a bit as she makes the connection, but her worried look doesn't leave. You then look down at Girnes who was still in a sorry state."Your brother will be fine, Sweetheart. He'll need some sugar to help build his blood back up. Will you be okay with sharing some of your cake?""...He... He can have it," She sniffs, "I don't want it anymore.""Why not?" Dawyn asks her gently."I... I was getting impatient and told him that, s-so he went to try and give me a slice early," She explains, her eyes tearing up again, "It was my fault..."What do you do?
>>40576456We're a little alarmed to learn this, but we hide it well."The fault is on all of us, not you specifically. You wouldn't expect him to hurt himself nor ask it of him if you had known, and perhaps he should've known better, but we should've made sure neither of you could hurt yourselves. He's your brother, and while it's okay to be sad, if he were here, he would be doing his best to cheer you up."Minecraft has evolved over the years
>>40576456"Chaser doesn't think so. He said he wanted to do something nice for you. He didn't blame you at all for what happened."We nibble on our name to find a way to word this."If you won't take a slice for yourself, then how about for you brother? If he heard you didn't take a slice, it would make him sad." Because he would have died for nothing.
>>40576504Yeah, I found copper and had to ask the others what I could even do with it.>>40576509You're a little alarmed to learn this, but you hide it well from her."Chaser doesn't think so. He said he wanted to do something nice for you. He didn't blame you at all for what happened," You tell her, "You wouldn't expect him to hurt himself nor ask it of him if you had known, and perhaps he should've known better, but we should've made sure neither of you could hurt yourselves. He's your brother, and while it's okay to be sad, if he was here, he would be doing his best to cheer you up."You nibble on your mane as you pause and try to find a way to word things."If you won't take a slice for yourself., then how about for your brother? If he heard you didn't take a slice, it would make him sad.""He's fine now, he wouldn't want to be sad about it and want you to try to enjoy your birthday." Dawyn tells her.Girnes is silent for several long seconds, still staring off at the walls. Eventually, she speaks."...Okay."You smile a little at this and trot past the two, leading them over to the kitchen so that you could quickly clean up the mess from the mishap and get a slice for little Girney.You then wake up in the real world, blinking your eyes open and sitting up slightly to look around.From what you could tell it was early in the morning, the sun having risen an hour or so ago. Armas had remained on the dresser seemingly throughout the night, his eyes looking over at you as you wake up.Dawyn was still asleep next to you, her chest gently rising and falling as she sleeps peacefully.What do you do?
Stopping for the night. I would make a summary here, but not enough happened in the session today warrants it with how much got down before the DM's internet crapped out. Thanksgiving break is done as well, so it's a return to my class schedule for a little under three weeks.Have a good night or day!
>>40576598We take a moment to admire our sleeping dragon.'No nightmares again. That's good. I'm glad she's sleeping soundly.''Being married to Dawyn wouldn't be the worst thing in the world... I wonder how Hannu would have felt knowing his son became a Necromancer.'We try to recall how we discovered our gifts (assuming we didn't obtained them through death.)We then shift our attention to Armas."Hey," We whisper. "How was your night?""I've noticed you've been showing some spirit properties, like imitating corporealness. You're still a soul, but it's possible you might become a spirit on your own. Usually that takes millennia or feelings of a strong emotion... Have you been feeling alright?"
>>40576598'That was... Odd. I wonder if that was triggered because of what happened with Kobelek? Though I've had strange dreams before with no such influence.'Sliding out of bed we start getting things ready.'If I ever do become a mother, I'll be more careful with where sharp objects are left.'
Spelljammer got cancelled for this week.>>40576667>>40577006You give yourself a moment to admire the sleeping Dragon mare, drinking in her form.'No nightmares again. That's good. I'm glad she's sleeping soundly.'You then think back to the dream you had and all the events that happened within it.'That was... odd. I wonder if that was triggered because of what happened with Kobelek? Though I've had strange dreams before with no such influence.'You carefully slide out of bed as you think back to how you discovered your gifts. Unlike Star Chaser, you had only found out you had it when Master brought it up to you.'Being married to Dawyn wouldn't be the worst thing in the world... I wonder how Hannu would have felt knowing his son became a Necromancer. If I did become a mother, I'll be more careful with where sharp objects are left.'You shift your attention over to Armas who is silent as you approach to whisper to him."Hey. How was your night?""Simple, like all the others." He shrugs."I've noticed you've been showing some spirit properties, like imitating corporealness," You tell him, "You're still a soul, but it's possible you might become a spirit on your own. Usually that takes millennia or feelings of a strong emotion... Have you been feeling alright?""...Now that you've mentioned it, I've been feeling a little weird lately," He admits, "Not a bad weird, it's a good weird strangely, but still weird."What do you do?
>>40578890It's probably the constant state of awareness and flow of magic, I imagine the weird feeling is that you're becoming more connected to the mortal realm for the first time in centuries. I'm not sure how to test and confirm that though.
>>40578890"I could look into this, if you wish. I'm not sure if it would be better to allow you to form fully on your own, or aid you with a spell, but I believe my proximity may have helped. Let me know if things ever feel off though."
Before I forget, I'll be in a flight to a vacation around nature around midnight. The destination is also 4 hours behind, so I won't be posting very often for the next 3 days.>>40578890"I suppose 'good weird' isn't something to be too alarmed about. You have been taking your death pretty well, but it could be a matter of reaching acceptance.""Admittingly, this is a bit of new territory for me. Souls inhabiting illusions is something I've only discovered recently, and I theorize you having consciousness might be speeding the process of becoming a spirit.""Of course, turning you into a spirit is still on the table, I think I figured out what I did wrong last time, but we'll need some privacy first." Sorry for the long post.
>>40578980>>40579000>>40579062"I suppose 'good weird' isn't something to be too alarmed about," You shrug, "I could look into this, if you wish. I'm not sure if it would be better to allow you to form fully on your own, or aid you with a spell, but I believe my proximity may have helped. Could also be the constant state of awareness and flow of magic, and the weird feeling could be you're becoming more connected to the mortal realm for the first time in centuries, or having consciousness might be speeding the process of becoming a spirit up. I'm not sure how to test and confirm that though.""I don't think there is an easy way to confirm that," He replies, "If you think one of your books has the answers then by all means.""Of course, turning you into a spirit is still on the table, I think I figured out what I did wrong last time, but we'll need some privacy first." You tell him."We can try it again if you wish, but be careful this time," He tells you, "If not, I'm fine with waiting and seeing what happens."What do you do?
>>40579156Let's see how you develop first. No need to mix in such spell if you will turn into the results on your own.Standing up we go take a shower.
>>40579185"Let's see how you develop first. No need to mix in such a spell if you will turn into the results on your own.""Very well, we'll see what happens then."You stand up and start to head to the shower. As you do Armas follows you."Did you sleep well," Armas asks, "I noticed you shifting a bit in bed during the night."What do you do?
>>40579472"Reasonably well. I dreamt of caring for my non-existent fawn following an accident, only to learn that he took after me in a few more ways than expected. It wasn't a nightmare, but it wasn't ideal either. Do you remember what it is like to dream? I don't know if Spirits' have the capacity to dream, though if you are susceptible to a suggestion spell, you would be susceptible to sleep, presumably."
>>40579472It wasn't... Strictly a positive dream, though not a wholly bad one either. My mind was a tad focused on foals, I had one of my own and they got so injured they discovered they were like me.I'm not sure what exactly to make of it.

I dreamt of caring for my non-existent fawn following an accident and they discovered they were like me. I'm not exactly sure what to make of it," You say, "Do you remember what it is like to dream? I don't know if Spirits' have the capacity to dream, though if you are susceptible to a suggestion spell, you would be susceptible to sleep, presumably.""I've tried to sleep in this form, but I haven't had any success," He states, "I do remember some particular dreams that I've had in the past like terrifying nightmares or very interesting dreams."He pauses for a moment and looks over at you as the two of you enter the bathroom."But dreams about fawns, must still have Hannu on your mind. Do you dream about fawns, or foals, very often?"What do you do?
>>40579658It was not the first and likely it won't have been the last one I'll have. Before you try to read into the idea too far I do realize this is potentially some subconscious desire, I have thought about having some and having foals isn't unappealing to me I'm just not sure hot to achieve it given my current wants. It won't be something to worry about until spring at least.We pay him no mind as we take off our nightgown and undergarments and start to shower.
>>40579658"No this was the- actually, there was another time, though not directly with foals. A spirit named Snowdrift wanted an heir in exchange for leaving a residence he wasn't welcomed in. The dream ended when we made the deal.""... I don't know if it'll work, but if you do want to experience sleep, I don't mind if you possess me. That extends to any living activities, just give me some notice."
>>40579658"Usually only sporatically in the spring, prior to my wandering. It has cropped up once or twice in the past few weeks though. Legacy and family are unknown to me, so the thought has held some appeal. Hannu..."We consider providing context for why we would have fawns in our dream, but decide against it, since he could already infer enough."Hannu and Dawyn have both been on my mind. My 'wants' and reality aren't overly compatible though: I might like to meet a striped pony and learn of their land, or if I have a connection to them, but that remains to be seen. A Hippogriff is more likely though."
>>40579675>>40579860>>40580912"It was not the first time and likely it won't be the last one I'll have. The other time was with a Spirit named Snowdrift who wanted an heir in exchange for leaving a residence he wasn't welcomed in. The dream ended when we made the deal," You say, "Besides that, it's usually only sporadically in the spring, prior to my wandering. Legacy and family are unknown to me, so the thought has held some appeal. Hannu..."You pause to consider providing context for why you would have fawns in your dream, but you decide against it, especially since the look you're getting from him shows that he could infer enough."Hannu and Dawyn have both been on my mind. My 'wants' and reality aren't overly compatible though: I might like to meet a Striped Pony and learn of their land, or if I have a connection to them, but that remains to be seen. A Hippogriff is more likely though," You say, "Regardless, it won't be something to worry about until later in the spring."You pay him little mind as you take off your nightgown and undergarments to begin to shower."Family life and the life of an Adventurer is one that will be hard to balance," He replies simply, "...Sorry for changing the subject, but what's a Hippogriff?"You pause for a moment, remembering that he had died before Hippogriffs were a thing. Master had taught you quite a bit about them from their history to their communities. He was always interested in them.What do you do?
>>40581613"They're a relatively recent addition to the board. They were formed by a Necromancer in need of an army from the front half of a Griffon and the rear half of a Pony, and are fairly tall on average. The Necromancer died and has been forgotten by the general populace, while the army formed a new species entirely. I think you'd find them curious, blending Griffon fishing villages with pony agriculture and making their own community in such a small time frame. Is there anything you wish to know specifically?"
>>40581613A race, you would take the front half of a griffin and the back half of a pony and would end up with a hippogriff. A relatively aggressive necromancer put so many of them together for their army when he was defeated they lived on as a new race.
>>40581613"Ah, right. I should have had you around when I explained it to Tanssija.""In short, they were constructs created via necessary. When their Creator Sylvan Sea was defeated, they were allowed to continue living their existence independently. They're a lot like a pony meshed with a griffin."We use minor illusion to show him what one would look like."Because they were made with Necromancy, they're the only species to be born with necromantic magic."
>>40581648>>40581695>>40581810"Ah, right. I should have had you around when I explained it to Tanssija," You say, "In short, they're a relatively recent addition to the board and were constructs via Necromancy. They were created to form an army from the front half of a Griffon and the rear half of a Pony, and fairly tall on average. When their creator, Sylvan Sea, was defeated they were allowed to continue living their existence and form a new species entirely."You quickly use minor illusion to show him what they would look like, his head looking down at it in fascination."I think you'd find them curious, blending Griffon fishing villages with Pony agriculture and making their own communities in such a small time frame, and because they were made with Necromancy they're the only species to be born with innate Necromantic magic.""That is fascinating," He exclaims, "Constructs gaining freewill and starting their own race! I don't think this is something that has ever happened before!""Is there anything you wish to know specifically?""How long ago was this? Where can they be found and what are their communities like?"You recall what you know about them. They became a thing two hundred and fifty years ago and could be found in various small communities across Eastern Estys, the part of the continent that you are in. They are small though and are usually found by the coast where they set up near towns and take up the religion and customs of the community they interact with. The Shetland Hippogriffs do have their own culture and religion that is beginning to form though.What do you do?
>>40582069I don't know if my information is up to date but there should be groups of them on the eastern Esrys along shores and such places. They seem to mold into where they settle but that might just be because they are such a young race and are still working out a culture but what they do have is fractured and varied based on location.Get out of the shower and dry off and start putting on makeup.
>>40582069"Two hundred and fifty years ago, approximately. They tend to take on the customs of those they live near, living in coastal towns mostly."We look at the illusion, altering it to look more in line with a Shetland Hippogriff (presumably much shorter), inspecting our work."It's harder to tell in most cases, but their pony 'halves' do mean there is some notable variation among the population as well.">Shetland HippogriffsHoly shit, they've gotta be adorable!
>>40582107>>40582175"Two hundred and fifty years ago, approximately. I don't know if my information on them is up to date but there should be groups of them along the shores and such places. They seem to mold into where they settle, but that might be because they are such a young race and are still working out a culture but what they do have is fractured and varied based on location."As you say this you get out of the shower and start drying off, going through the process of putting on your makeup. You take the time to alter the illusion to make it look more like a Shetland Hippogriff, making it much shorter than a normal Hippogriff. The Shetland Hippogriffs still live on the surface of those cold, windswept islands while the Shetlanders themselves lived underneath the islands, but the Shetland Hippogriffs were still smaller from what you heard."It's harder to tell in most cases, but their Pony 'halves' do mean there is some notable variation among the population as well.""Interesting," He nods, "Perhaps when we reach the coast of Magnibuga we'll run into a community of them? I would love to be able to get a look at them."As he says this your ears flick at the sound of the bed in the main room shifting. You glance over and through the wall with your soul sight to see that Dawyn was starting to wake up.What do you do?
>>40582250So would I. I'm very interested in seeing them for a variety of reasons. We'll have to track some down at some point. I think though Dawyn is awakening so we'll need to continue this conversation later. Walk over and plant a kiss on her cheek leaving a purple imprint of our lips on her scales from our recently applied lipstick.
>>40582274"So would I. I'm very interested in seeing them for a variety of reason," You agree, "We'll have to track some down at some point. I think though Dawyn is awakening so we'll need to continue this conversation later."He nods silently in response and sits on your back as you trot out of the bathroom just in time to watch her stretch her body forward. As she comes out of the stretch you trot over and kiss her on the cheek, leaving a purple imprint of your lips on her cheek from your recently applied lipstick. She smiles at this and returns the kiss with one on the lips."Thanks for that dear," She smiles, "Had a good sleep last night? I'm happy to report my dreams were well."Her smile grows a little wider."I dreamt that you grew wings and I was teaching you how to fly."What do you do?
>>40582502If I ever do grow wings you'll be the first I ask to teach me then. My own dreams were fine, nothing worth going over though.Giving her a small smile we turn around and start to get dressed.I'll let you get ready though, we're going to have a long day dealing with mud I think.
>>40582502We giggle at the idea."I think I prefer the ground, but that is cute. Was it clumsy flyer, or did we dance around the clouds in a beautiful grace?""The dream I had was that we were married parents and were raising a son and daughter together. I don't think I'm ready to settle down yet, there's still so much to explore, but the dream made me happy."
>>40582502"I imagine I must've been too distracted just watching you do so to truly learn. It sounds quite beautiful though. I dreamt of a day in unexpected parenthood: comforting and treating a young buck son after an accident, you caring for our doe daughter. It was strange more than anything, though you carried a decade of motherhood well.">>40582675Morning, Pluto!>Gael and Nocty 'bickering' after a long day, a slight bump on their bellies marking their budding status as a pair of mothers>Gael insists that she's as alert and attentive as she's ever been>Nocty teases that she can prove that is a bold faced lie, tossing something aside as she talks>... Gael darts across the room, catching the cum filled, enchanted rubber ball frozen in time, moments before it can splatter, before making her way back to where she had just been seated and pretending she hadn't moved a feather>Nocty just grins, positively enamored with Gael's cat behavior
>>40582526>>40582578>>40583852You giggle at the idea, letting yourself imagine it in your head for a moment."I think I prefer the ground, but that is cute. If I ever do grow wings you'll be the first that I ask to teach me," You say, "Though I imagine I must've been too distracted just watching you to truly learn. Was I a clumsy flier, or did we dance around the clouds in a beautiful grace?""You were very clumsy at first, but you improved very quick. I ended up watching you as you darted through the clouds."You smile at this and turn around to start getting dressed."The dream I had was that we were married parents and were raising a son and daughter together, but I ended up having to comfort him after an accident while you cared for our daughter. It was strange more than anything, though you carried a decade of motherhood well.""I hope I did! Just imagining how I would look a decade after parenting... horrifying." She teases, faking a shiver."I don't think I'm ready to settle down yet, there's still so much to explore, but the dream made me happy.""Besides the accident it sounds like a good dream," She replies, "And you're not the only one cause there is still a lot I want to do before settling down.""We can do it whenever," You shrug, "I'll let you get ready though, we're going to have a long day dealing with mud I think.""Right, I should get ready for that. Think you could look through the window and check?"You trot over to the window in your room and pull the curtain to the side, getting greeted by a bright morning sun as it comes up. There were no clouds left in the sky, but the ground still looks a bit muddy from what you could see though not as bad as it was when it was raining yesterday.What do you do?
>>40584386"The sun did a quick job of drying the mud, but it looks like there's still plenty to deal with. I think we'll be alright."We then kiss her on the lips."Also, I disagree. You look as gorgeous as a parent as you do now."
>>40584386It does look like the storm has finally broken. If you've remembered any last minute items you want before leaving town now would be the time to get them.
>>40584477>>40584557"It does look like the storm has finally broken. The sun did a quick job of drying the mud, but it looks like there is still plenty to deal with. I think we'll be alright.""Compared to us coming into Mineshi through the storm? Nothing we can't handle." Dawyn agrees.You turn around and trot over to her to give her a kiss on the lips before she could enter the bathroom."If you've remembered any last minute items you want before leaving town now would be the time to get them," You say, "Also, I disagree. You look as gorgeous as a parent as you do now."She smiles and returns the kiss."Thank you, and I'll think about it after my shower. You can get us breakfast or go do anything you need to while I'm in here."What do you do?
>>40584801I'll go downstairs and order us some food. When you're done and dressed that's where I'll be.We head downstairs and go order meals for everyone.
>>40584801"I will get us something to eat, and check in with the others if they're up. You enjoy your shower."We head on down, subtly checking in on Tanssija and Smoke's souls when we can.
Sorry, makeup session for my Sunday group did happen tonight. Finally got to a new location though.>>40584821>>40584895"I'll go downstairs and order us some food, and check in with the others if they're up. You enjoy your shower, and I'll be down there when you're done."The two of you hug before separating as you head outside your room, subtly glancing at Tanssija and Smoke's souls as you do. Both of their souls was away from their bed so they'll probably be down soon.You don't wait for them and continue downstairs to the tavern area of the inn. While you make your way over to the counter to order your food you glance over at those who are already dining, spotting Copper occupying one of the tables this morning. He spots you as well, looking up from his food to give you a small wave in greeting.What do you do?
>>40585798We wave back with a small smile and trot over to him."Hello, Copper. Would you mind some company?"If he's okay with it, we sit across from him. Otherwise we stay standing."How are the Yashcheritsa doing?"
>>40585798Head over to Copper for the moment.Good morning, I heard we might be getting back on the road today. Is that correct?
Stopping for the night. I'll just post the summary tomorrow.Have a good night or day!
>>40585875>>40585959You give him a small smile and trot over to him."Good morning. Would you mind some company?""Not at all."With his permission you sit down across from him, watching him continue to eat for a moment."I heard we might be getting back on the road today. Is that correct?""...Yes," He nods after swallowing his food, "In fact, I was hoping to leave as soon as the four of you are done with your breakfast. We need to leave soon if we want to experience Radonitsa at Sibashika."What do you do?
>>40587484'Dawyn might not be able to do any last minute shopping then.'That makes sense, the mud will make for slow going. How have you been doing for the last few days? We haven't seen much of you since we got here.
>>40587575'Dawyn might not be able to do any last minute shopping then.'"That makes sense, the mud will make for slow going.""Hopefully only for a few hours." He groans."How have you been doing for the last few days? We haven't seen much of you since we got here.""Just spent most of it hunkered down in my carriage a bit bored after getting the Yashchertisas in their stable," He says, "Would've sold some of my stock, but barely anybody was out in the rain and I don't blame them."He then takes a sip of his drink."What about you four? Got much done?"What do you do?
>>40587714We frown slightly, actually a little sad that Copper was sequestered to his carriage for a few days. We're also a little surprised he hadn't heard about what we were up to, even if we hadn't advertised what happened."We slayed a Quyish and established contact with a Changeling Hive, the latter helping quite handily with the former, for the betterment of all. I have some notes if you're curious, about the latter; the Quyish is not worth discussing over breakfast. We did get to see some adorable Changeling grubs though."
>>40587714We actually did. We ended up clearing the mines of a monster and discovering a city of changelings under the ground. Walking up and down the mineshaft over and over wasn't the most entertaining but it was interesting once you got there.
>>40587817>>40587859You frown a bit, actually a bit sad that Copper was forced to sequester himself in his carriage for a few days. You are also surprised that he hadn't heard about what you were up to, but you suppose that the four of you never advertised what had happened."We actually did. We ended up clearing the mines of a monster called a Quyish and discovered a city of Changelings underground, the latter helping us quite a bit with the former. I have some notes if you're curious, about the latter; the Quyish is not worth discussing over breakfast. We did get to see some adorable Changeling grubs though.""Huh, didn't know there was even a monster in the mines," He comments, "Didn't know there were Changelings here either. They were in the mines?""Yeah, walking up and down the mineshaft over and over wasn't the most entertaining but it was interesting once we got there.""That's interesting, I haven't ran into Changelings in a long time," He comments, "To think that I've traveled over a Hive of them in Mineshi multiple times and not knowing."What do you do?
>>40588162Well they are apparently thinking of opening up trade now that the mines have intersected with their tunnels, maybe you could go down for a visit some time. They do seem to have access to a lot of crystals.
>>40588162"Have you had regular contact with Changelings before? It may be worth getting in contact with them, if you're a trader familiar with their customs, though you have your schedule to keep."
>>40588175>>40588204"Well they are apparently thinking of opening up trade now that the mines have intersected with their tunnels, maybe you could go down for a visit some time. They do seem to have access to a lot of crystals," You say, "Have you had regular contact with Changelings before?""There is a hive in Apagorsk that I visit each time I head north on this path," He explains, "The Apis Hive. They're a surface hive that has a lot of interactions with Ponies."He takes another sip of his drink."I would love to see this new hive, but I don't have the time to do it now."As he speaks you spot Smoke and Tanssija come down, the two of them spotting you and trotting over.What do you do?
>>40588364Maybe on the trip back then?We wave over to the pair. Good morning you two, how did you sleep?
>>40588394"Maybe on the trip back then?"As you suggest this you turn to the pair and wave at them."Morning, Silver." Tanssija greets you as the two arrive."Good morning you two, how did you sleep?""We slept well," Smoke responds before glancing at Tanssija with an exaggerated angry look, "Someone kept hogging the sheets though.""You could've woke me up and told me to stop." Tanssija points out to him."Yeah, but I didn't want to wake you just for that," He replies before turning back to you, "Anyway, how did you sleep?"What do you do?
>>40588553It was fine. Could have been better but sleeping on a bed is always nice at least. I've ordered you both food by the way.So, finally started sleeping together then? Good for you both congratulations~We giggle softly shaking our head.
>>40588553We smile, happy to see them doing so well."Quite well. Dreaming of caring for fawns and waking to a lovely mare are both quite pleasant. If blankets are troubling you, might I advise simply cuddling closer and procuring larger blankets?"
>>40588553 The two big events we had planned for our vacation had to be cancelled due to rain. I still had a good time though. We'll be going back tomorrow, and should arrive back around 10PM."I had an interesting dream about parenthood with Dawyn. Our children were really cute."We use minor illusion to make Gernis and Star Chaser, saturating the features that represent the father to tease Tanssija."If you want a recommendation to your sleep problem, ever thought about having one of you sleep on top of the other?"
>>40588605>>40588610>>40588652You smile, happy to see the two of them doing so well."Quite well. Could have been better but sleeping on a bed is always nice at least. I've ordered you both food, by the way.""Thank you.""So, finally started sleeping together then? Good for you both, congratulations~."You giggle softly at your own joke while Tanssija just smiles and rolls her eyes and Smoke smiles slightly in return, finding the joke slightly amusing. You soon shake your head and continue speaking."If blankets are troubling you, might I advise simply cuddling closer and procuring larger blankets? Anyway, I had an interesting dream about caring for fawns before waking up to a lovely mare."You use minor illusion to make Girnes and Star Chaser, saturating some of their features that represent the father to tease Tanssija. The two of them study the fawns for a moment, Tanssija more so as she spends several moments staring, her expression changing from a slightly amused expression to a thoughtful one. It doesn't last too long as he turns to look at you."I can probably guess that the events yesterday prompted this dream from you," She tells you teasingly, "Though I find it strange that they are fawns rather than grubs. Still have a certain buck on your mind, hmm?"What do you do?
>>40588788We blush ever so slightly.Me and that certain buck do talk rather frequently. I'm hardly ashamed that I'm still thinking of your hot brother.
Stopping for the night. I have a summary tonight from the Sunday session because it got changed to Wednesday this week and I was too tired to post it yesterday: Welcome to Galsby, Bitch.All of the characters are still kinda doing their own thing, but we go to Theo as he finally goes to talk to Tobwin about... something. Babel wanted Theo to talk to him in one of his letters to him.There is some antics as he has to head to the military district of Laloc to get to the castle where Tobwin is, but the guards refuse. Theo does bring up that he knows Warren so he is escorted to him so Warren can confirm that he knows Theo. Warren then takes Theo to Tobwin so he can finally talk to him. The talk is that Babel wanted Tobwin to tell Theo some of the truth about some of the truth about Theo himself. He tells him that he's a Veiling, this world's equivalent of Dark Elves, and that he's from The Veil. He's not supposed to be outside The Veil so people are looking for him to either kill him or bring him back. Babel knew him long before he found him in Galsby and Babel had helped him escape from The Veil along with his twin sister, Charlie, who is somewhere looking for Theo.While Theo processes all of this the rest of the group reconvenes at Naltaal's place where everyone is introduced to the dog that Amafrey and Polya got for free last session who's name is now Sendri. They don't stay for too long because it's finally decided that it's time to meet with the royals at the castle again and get everything sorted for Galsby and meet back up with Theo. The four of them head over, join up with Warren as well, and end up finding Theo having a minor freak out while trying to process some of the truth about himself. The group brings him out of this, he tells the group about what he was told, and everyone promises that they'll defend him if the time comes and help him find his sister.Everyone then gets to speak with Keeper Haldin about what the group needs before heading to Galsby. Most of the things are basic like: armor for those that don't have it, weapons, rations, a map of Galsby that's possibly marked with where the party will be teleported in and where they need to go, a compass. Naltaal asks for a spell scroll with a Teleportation spell on it just in case things get bad and the party needs to leave, but that is declined because the curse in Galsby prevents people from teleporting out. Healing Potions are also given out for everyone and the whole party levels up to level 8.Cont.
>>40588981The night is skipped over and the next morning everyone is back in the castle getting ready to be teleported in where they get a bit more information about the situation in Galsby. The Kingdom of Laventh, the place where Galsby is spreading and causing major issues in, is still standing and the royal family is still around there but their control is very, very tenuous. The group is then teleported and apparently the Clerics doing the teleporting either didn't know or forgot to tell the group that the teleportation in is a bit fucked as well. Theo, Polya, and Warren are all safely teleported directly into the barely functioning city of Galsby which is safe compared to the woods surrounding Galsby, the three of them get a bit of attention from suddenly teleporting in.Meanwhile, Naltaal is teleported somewhere in the middle of the very cursed, very dangerous woods and finds herself currently alone. She isn't alone for too long as Amafrey and Eridis end up getting to join her and the three now have to figure out where the fuck they are before the woods decide to try to kill them.And that was the session. Naltaal and half of the group are now in a very bad spot with no idea where they are currently. I'm happy to finally leave Laloc after spending close to a year there with Naltaal, though she is now in a dangerous place and I'm worried. I've been to Galsby twice with two one-shot characters and neither of them survived, though the DM has said that he doesn't want to try to kill us so there's that I guess. I don't think I'm ready to try to navigate Naltaal through what is pretty much Darkwood.
>>40588788It's likely because my mind wouldn't have the first clue as to what a pony changing hybrid would look like. Or perhaps the storied element is enticing. I would gain a cute doe as their aunt too so that couldn't have hurt~
>>40588788We continue to smile slightly, subtly daring her to keep teasing."Not just yesterday, strictly speaking. Kobelek was a gentlestallion, and grubs are adorable, but Hannu planted the seed, indirectly at least. I feel no shame in saying he is still on my mind, just as Dawyn is. Plus, our story would make quite a compelling novel, which only fuels my imagination. Enough about my dreams though, what of yours?"
>>40588810>>40589687>>40590152You blush ever so slightly and smile back at her, subtly daring her to keep teasing."It's likely because my mind wouldn't have the first clue as to what a Pony-Changeling hybrid would look like. Or perhaps the storied element is enticing. Kobelek was a gentlestallion, and grubs are adorable, but me and that certain buck talk frequently and Hannu planted the seed, indirectly at least. I feel no shame that I'm till thinking of your hot brother. Our story would make quite a compelling novel, which only fuels the imagination, and I would gain a cute doe as their aunt too so that wouldn't hurt~."Tanssija tries to keep her teasing expression, but as you continue her face starts to scrunch up a bit."He definitely planted more than one seed in you," She mutters, "Who knows, maybe the two of you will get to see each other again and you can see how he reacts to you dreaming about having his fawns~.""Maybe," You shrug for now, "Enough about my dreams though, what of yours?""Nothing as interesting as yours," Tanssija shakes her head, "No similar dreams of having the fawns of Smoke here."It's Smoke's turn to start blushing as he looks away from the conversation and at Copper, giving him a begging look. Copper just smiles at him, seemingly enjoying the conversation.What do you do?
>>40590854Just dreams of the sneak peaks of what was going on below the water in the spa then? Ah but we shouldn't be too hard on Smoke. I'm sure he stuck up out of the water as well.
>>40590854Our cheeks still burn a little ourself, having missed double entendre about Hannu's 'seed' we'd set up, though the thought of seeing him again and teasing him about our dream does make us happy."Sometimes simple and restful sleep is better. The reality of fawns could be quite fulfilling, if you should choose to have some."Looking to Smoke, we raise an eyebrow, to see if he's willing to part with any info, even accidentally.(Assuming nothing obvious comes up) We take a stab in the dark."Dreaming of spending time with your doefriend is perfectly natural, regardless of what circumstances. The chastity of said dream is irrelevant... though your silence/behavior likely implies 'worse' than the truth."
>>40590943>>40591031Your cheeks still burn despite yourself, having missed the double entendre about Hannu's 'seed' that you had set up, though the thought of seeing him again and teasing him about the dream does make you happy."Just dreams of the sneak peeks of what was going on below the water in the spa then," You ask, getting a blush from her in response, "Ah, but we shouldn't be too hard on Smoke. I'm sure he snuck up out of the water as well."Smoke's blush increases at this as he looks down at the floor. You just smile a little and shake your head."Sometimes simple and restful sleep is better. The reality of fawns can be quite fulfilling, if you should choose to have some."You look over to Smoke as you say this, to see if he is willing to part with any info, even if accidental. After several moments he does end up speaking."I just had a dream that I was back home helping out on the farm," He admits, looking back at you, "Nothing weird or serious."As he speaks you see Dawyn appear at the top of the stairs. Rather than trotting down the stairs she hops into the air and spreads her wings to glide down them instead, landing gracefully at the bottom before making her way over.What do you do?
>>40591336"Nothing wrong with..."We lose tracking what we were going to say mid sentence as we get distracted simply watching Dawyn descend through the air. It takes another second to realize she's approaching us, at which point we make some room for her."As I was saying, dreams of home and the mundane are to be cherished just as well as the exciting."
>>40591336... That is one way to make an entrance. Seems we're just waiting on the food then.
>>40591393>>40591465"Nothing wrong with..."You begin to speak but lose track mid sentence as you get distracted from simply watching Dawyn descend through the air. It takes another second after this to realize that she's approaching you, where you then make some room for her to sit with you."As I was saying, dreams of home and the mundane are to be cherished just as well as the exciting.""I'll definitely agree to that." He nods.You then turn to Dawyn."...That is one way to make an entrance.""Thank you," She smiles, "Anything going on?""Seems we're just waiting on the food." You reply."While we're waiting I might as well repeat what I told Silver to everyone," Copper says, "My plan is to leave as soon as you are all done eating. If we want to reach Sibashika in time for Radonitsa we'll need to leave in an hour or so. Is that alright with everyone?""As long as we can get our stuff from our rooms." Tanssija says."Of course, I'm not going to prevent you guys from getting your stuff."What do you do?
>>40591643I'll go check on the food then.Kiss Dawyn on the way past and see how our food is going.(We can probably skip breakfast unless something important is going to happen?)
>>40591643"I can buy any last minute things we may need as we wait for our food. Does anyone need anything?"(I can't think of anything we may need, but want to give people the option, particularly since we were concerned that Dawyn wouldn't be able to shop.) Finally done with flights! Just a two hour car ride back home!
I think I'm going to stop a little early tonight. I'm just tired.Have a good night or day!
>>40592087Night, Pluto!Get some rest
>>40591731>>40592003"I'll go check on the food then. I can also buy any last minute things we may need as we wait for our food. Does anyone need anything?""I think Tanssija and I are good." Smoke replies."I'm good as well." Dawyn nods.With that, you kiss Dawyn as you get up to see how the food is doing. Turns out that it's done and you get to deliver breakfast to the others. Everyone eats before you return to your rooms to gather all of your stuff and then meet back up with Copper to get back onto the road once more.Like the trip to Mineshi, the trip to Sibashika is uneventful and this time the weather is good, there isn't a cloud in sight for the entirety of the five day trek. The only eventful thing that the five of you run into is a bear with two cubs that didn't want anything to do with any of you so they luckily ran off into the trees without causing any trouble.After five days of traveling you arrive at the outskirts of Sibashika an hour before the sun would go below the horizon. The little town was a collection of wooden buildings that sat at the edge of the forest and the shore of a small lake. Despite the town's small size you could see a lot of Unicorns moving throughout it and even near the shore of the lake, a lot of them probably there for the Radonitsa celebrations tomorrow. The whole town was decorated for the celebrations with strings of lights strung up between buildings, collections of candles burning outside of different buildings along with decorated wreaths made out of tree branches like pine, maple, and elm hanging from various doors and windows. As you look upon all the decorations, Copper's voice brings you back."...We might be sleeping outside while we're here," Copper comments, "I doubt we're going to find a room for any of us at this point."What do you do?
>>40594412"The area seems peaceful enough that it shouldn't be a problem. So long as the weather holds, the night should be quite lovely."
>>40594530"The area seems peaceful enough that it shouldn't be a problem," You say, "So long as the weather holds, the night should be quite lovely.""Hopefully," He agrees, "Let's just find a patch or something near the outskirts of town and go there for now."It takes a bit since there are other caravans who are having the same issues as you are in not finding space, but you all end up finding a spot near the lake that is a two minute trot from town. There you all get settled in with the four of you getting your tents up and Copper getting his carriage set up after finding a spot to tie his Yashcheritsas up."Are the Yashcheritsas going to be okay staying there?" Smoke asks him as he does so."They will," He nods, "Could even let them free range and not leave them tied to a tree, but I don't want them to wander off and cause trouble."You are only half listening to this conversation as you were focused on getting your tent set up for the night. As you do though your attention is grabbed by Tanssija as she goes by, watching for her a moment as she trots up to a pine tree to inspect it for a moment. She then reaches up to a small, low-lying branch to pull it off of the tree before breaking it in half and stashing it into her backpack.What do you do?
>>40594686We approach Tanssija, curious about what she is doing though a few theories come to mind."Did that pine do something to offend you?"We ask cheekily.
>>40594686We are somewhat exposed just camping out here, will we have to keep a constant watch on the wagon so no opportunistic thieves make off with anything?>>40594807I think it's for making a teleportation branch, maybe?
>>40594807>>40595005You approach Tanssija as she stuffs the branch into her backpack, curious about what she is doing but a few theories do come to mind."Did that pine do something to offend you?" You ask her cheekily."Offended me with how peaceful it is," She replies jokingly, "In all seriousness, I liked the look of it and thought it would look nice after getting carved into something."Something about her explanation feels a little off, but you nod for now as you look around at your little camp."We are somewhat exposed just camping out here, will we have to keep a constant watch on the wagon so no opportunistic thieves make off with anything?" You ask."I think we're close enough to town that we won't get any trouble, but a watch never hurts."As Tanssija says this she takes out her bow and places it over her back."Smoke and I finished setting up our tent, and it's been a while since I've done it so I think I'm going to go out hunting and see what I can find," She tells you, "Maybe if I'm fast enough we can have something to cook for dinner."What do you do?If you want you can also roll a d20 + 1 for her earlier explanation.
Rolled 8 + 1 (1d20 + 1)>>40595929Rolling.
>>40595929While whittling is a fine hobby, the sticks could be for building traps. They could also be for the God prediction spell... Would be sad if it's for what I think it is, but would Tanssija be that sceptical of us after saving her life? Would she REALLY think we would strike with our sinister Necromancy during a festival??? or perhaps the talk of children and Smoke's reluctance has her reconsidering her relationship. ... Maybe she just wants to know if we will survive exploring the Giant's Ruins. "Would you like Armas to come with you? He could help you find animals to hunt." "Alright. Stay safe, and if you need help, shoot a flaming arrow in the sky."We give her a short hug then finish up setting our (and Dawyn's?) tent.
>>40595929"I believe you're more than fast enough, just stay out of trouble. You'll be faster without me, I suspect, so happy hunting.">>40595994Morning, Pluto!>>40596080I think you're being a little paranoid to jump to Tanssija mistrusting Luscinia, if you're semi-serious. She snapped the stick/branch with her hooves, so it wouldn't really work for a stake, imo, especially with armor in the way.
>>40596603>"Divination: a spell that allows the caster to pray to the god of their choosing on a specific action one plans to take in the next thirty minutes at most, which will give you one of four possible answers. The caster needs a smooth, flat stone with a gem embedded in the middle and a stick that is short in length, place the stick directly on top of the stone and say your prayer while casting the spell where you'll get an answer.>The stick spinning on the stone means that the action has good results.>The stick breaking in half means that the action will have bad results.>The stick rolling off of the stone means that the action will have both good and bad results.>And the stick doing nothing means that the results are neither good nor bad.>MP: 8"I was more thinking she would ask the gods about one of those thoughts I had, since her response was "off". Otherwise, whatever she needs to use the stake for isn't really a big deal, even if it was a stake, it can't kill us for good, and her scimitar, and even an arrow would be more effective.
>>40597368Will admit, I read your post not long after waking up, and completely blanked on the context (and existence) of the spell.Which is odd, cause I considered Tanssija using the sticks magically somehow (like with the Paavola sticks), but assumed she wouldn't cast it herself.And a stake was the only weapon I could think of, given its association with killing (certain) undead, and crafting an arrow would make little sense when she already has stuff. I'm wondering if she's going to get Hannu here for Radonitsa, given he and the holiday were brought up recently.
>>40595972>>40596080>>40596603>>40597368>>40597450You stay silent for a moment while you regard her. You were getting a feeling that she is hiding something, but she could also be telling the truth."I believe you're more than fast enough, just stay out of trouble. You'll be faster without me, I suspect, but would you like Armas to come with you? He could help you find animals to hunt.""I appreciate it, but I think I'll be fine on my own." She replies, giving you a small smile."Alright. Stay safe, and if you need help, shoot a flaming arrow in the sky.""Could also shoot a spark into the sky, probably less of a chance to accidentally light the forest on fire," She shrugs, "If I do get into trouble I'll find a way to make sure you all know."You give her a short hug that she returns before she trots off into the brush. From there you finish setting up the tent for you and Dawyn, getting it done pretty quick this time. Once you are done you look up from the tent and look around at the others.Tanssija had gone off to hunt and is well out of sight at this point, Dawyn is at the shore reading one of her books though you couldn't tell which one, Smoke is getting a fire going, and finally you watch as Copper steps out of his carriage with a backpack on. As you watch him he looks back at you responds."I'm going to go into Sibashika really quick, see if I can sell a few things and check if a room is miraculously available."What do you do?
>>40597834"Good luck with that, Copper. Is there anything we should know or do while you're away, or are we free to wander?"
>>40598027"Good luck with that, Copper," You tell him, "Is there anything we should know or do while you're away, or are we free to wander?""Nah, you're free to do as you please," He shakes his head, "If you do want to wander around in the wilderness like Tanssija, just be aware there are a good amount of bears around Sibashika. They shouldn't get close to use since we're this close to town, but if a bear gets close don't approach it."He then trots towards the direction of town. Once he's out of earshot, Smoke speaks up."Warns us about the bears now." Smoke mutters, continuing his work with the fireplace as he floats a few more stones over.What do you do?
>>40598229 Tanssija isn't going to literally "poke the bear", is she? "Tanssija's a tough doe, you know that, Smoke.""Would the bears around here be the same as the ones we saw on the way here?"(Were they brown or black? Black is safe, brown is dangerous.)
>>40598229"We're not in town, so animals are to be expected. Plus, she's the most agile of us all: I expect she could evade a bear if strictly necessary. At which point, she'll send up a signal and you'll charge to her rescue as her valiant savior."Having said that, we still check the perimeter for any particularly large or aggressive souls.
>>40598250>>40598270"Tanssija's a tough doe, you know that, Smoke. Plus, she's the most agile of us all: I expect she could evade a bear if strictly necessary. At which point, she'll send up a signal and you'll charge to her rescue as her valiant savior.""I know, it's just hard not to worry," He sighs, "She can watch out for herself just fine.As he says this you still look around the perimeter for any large or aggressive souls. You could see one large soul, but it was on the opposite side of the lake which is quite far from all of you."Would the bears around here be the same as the ones we saw on the way here?" You ask."You mean the one with the cubs we saw yesterday," Smoke asks, "Hopefully the bears around here are black like the mother and her cubs were."From this point you simply relax and talk with Smoke after he gets the fire going, Dawyn eventually joining the two of you. The three of you sit like this for about an hour as the sun goes down and eventually makes it most of the way below the distant horizon. At the end of this hour Tanssija returns, stepping back through the same brush that she disappeared behind."You're back," Smoke smiles at her, "You were gone for a while. Did you catch anything?""Sadly, no, I didn't find anything on the way out or back," She shakes her head before smiling, "I did find a familiar face though!"She then looks to her right side expectantly as the bushes rustle but nothing happens. Her expression turns to confusion as she then places her head back in through the bush and starts to speak quietly."I thought you were going to come out?"She gets a response quickly. It's muffled and hard to hear, but you could just barely make out the response she gets."What if I look stupid?""Look stupid-? You don't, now come on!"She moves into the bush a bit more and then pulls herself out along with a buck that you immediately recognize. He wasn't wearing a regal set of clothing or his crown, instead having swapped his clothes for a more casual brown colored coat and black pants, the lack of crown exposing the short blonde mane he had between his antlers. This gave him a bit of a different look, but it is still unmistakably Hannu.After stumbling a bit from being pulled through the bush he quickly dusts himself off and then looks up at the three of you, giving everyone a nervous smile."H-Hey, it's been a while..."What do you do?
>>40598410We for our part are stunned though we don't really show it very well. We stare at him for a while before flicking our eyes over to look at Tanssija questioningly.Standing, we start to move over to him.It has been, I was thinking about when next to call you for a conversation but I didn't want to disturb you too often. You are a busy buck after all, but here you are in the flesh...Bring him in for a hug as we stare down into his eyes.
>>40598410The wheels in our head start turning, figuring out how in Equis did Hannu get here?'The sticks, but could it really...?'We check his soul to make sure with absolute certainty this is our buck and not some Changeling she paid off."Hannu! My king!"We get up and run to our king to give him a hug.
>>40598410A little wide eyed, we look back over to Smoke and Dawyn, to see if they knew about this."Excuse me a moment."We say automatically as we get to our hooves, making a quick canter over to him and only just keeping from stumbling into him, pulling him into a tight hug immediately, smiling towards Tanssija.We're gonna have to make sure Hannu knows to call us Silver around Dawyn. Also, letting Dawyn know about what we are at some point.
>>40598465>>40598488>>40598504You stare a little wide eyed though that's about all you really show, flicking your eyes over at Tanssija questioningly to see her smiling. You then look over at Smoke and Dawyn who both look back at you with equally stunned expressions. You then look back at the two, the wheels in your head turning as you try to think how Hannu got here.'The sticks, but could it really...?'You then check his soul to make sure with absolute certainty that this is your buck and not some Changeling Tanssija paid off somehow. It only takes a second of observation, there is no mistaking Hannu's soul for anyone else's."Hannu! My king!"You get up on your hooves and rush over to him, just keeping yourself from stumbling into him as you come to a stop. You then pull him into a tight hug, smiling towards Tanssija before going back to Hannu who smiles back up at you."It has been, I was thinking about when next to call you for a conversation but I didn't want to disturb you too often. You are a busy buck after all, but here you are in the flesh...""Tanssija used her Homeward Stick to teleport to Alln Lenora and then we used the two sticks she got here to come back." He replies as you stare down into his eyes and he stares up into yours."I told him where we were going and about Radonitsa the night after we left Mineshi, and I gave him the suggestion that he could visit us for the holiday." Tanssija explains"Kings can get holidays off," Hannu nods, "And I wanted to see my sister and you again in the flesh."He returns your hug at this point, pressing his face into your upper chest and lower neck for a moment before looking back up at you.What do you do?
>>40598617I'm glad you decided to come, I can properly introduce you to Dawyn now as well and Tanssija can do the same for Smoke. We lean in and whisper into his ear.Before that, I am curious, have you made any progress in confessing your feelings for a certain doe?
>>40598617"A well deserved one, from what I've gathered. I've missed you."Nuzzling him, we pause for a moment, not wanting to detract from the moment but hoping to avoid trouble."Do take care to call me Silver. Dawyn knows of the book you left in my care, but I've not yet shared all that I am."Of course, if we have told her in the interim, remove that part of my post.>>40598670Seconding!
>>40598670>>40598717"A well deserved on, from what I've gathered. I'm glad you decided to come, I can properly introduce you to Dawyn now as well and Tanssija can do the same for Smoke. And I've missed you."You give him a nuzzle that he takes with a large smile, but you pause your nuzzle, not wanting to detract from the moment but hoping to avoid trouble."Do take care to call me Silver. Dawyn knowns of the book you left in my care, but I've not yet shared all that I am.""I'll keep that in mind." He whispers back."I am curious, have you made any progress in confessing your feelings for a certain doe?""Not yet, but I was going to do it soon."He then nuzzles you back and keeps himself close to you for several moments until you both notice Smoke and Dawyn get up to approach. Hannu looks over to the two, addressing Smoke first."I assume you're Smoke, the stallion that has taken my sister's heart?""That's me," He nods, "Smoke Tree.""Good to finally meet you, and thanks for looking after my sister, it means a lot to me.""Of course! She's been a wonderful doe."The two shake hooves and then Hannu turns to Dawyn."And you're Dawyn. I remember seeing you through the mirror.""Yeah, it's nice to see you in person." She greets him, blushing a little."I assume you've been helping to keep Silver out of trouble." He smiles at her, but looking over at you after saying this to silently say you could answer this as well.What do you do?
>>40598960Yes she does, and Dawyn does a fine job at that. I assume you're asking because you want her to keep you out of trouble too~? Letting Hannu go we slide over to Dawyn and press against her slightly before sharing a conspicuous whisper with her.The mirror doesn't quite do his form justices does it~?
>>40598960"For the most part. There has been an occasion or two where she's been dragged along into my antics."We give Dawyn a quick kiss."How have things been for you?"
>>40598996>>40599016"For the most part, and Dawyn does a fine job at that though there has been an occasion or two where she's been dragged along into my antics. I assume you're asking because you want her to keep you out of trouble too~?""Something like that." He nods with a smile.As he responds you let go of Hannu to slide over to Dawyn and press yourself against her and give her a quick kiss to the cheek. After the kiss you take the chance to whisper conspicuously to her."The mirror doesn't quite do his form justice, does it~?""It does not," She whispers back, agreeing with you, "He looks better in person."You then look over at Hannu."How have things been for you?""Still a bit hectic, but I'm starting to get used to it," He replies, "Still dealing with things from the council, but they're getting done and the new advisors haven't been giving me any new headaches so far. With all that the council did though I'm finding it hard not to be a bit paranoid around them."What do you do?
>>40599117That's understandable. Perhaps having some deer to keep an eye on them would help ease your worries? To check in on what they are doing and make sure nothing is going on behind closed doors. But this isn't something for you to worry about while you're on vacation.Ah, should we keep your title under wraps?
>>40599117"You'll figure things out. You don't need to solve every problem at once, and if there is something too large to be handle by yourself, you have others to lean on: ourselves for one, and hopefully your advisors in due time."Night, Pluto!
Stopping for the night. Thread is over bump limit so we'll finally be returning to Rise probably Tuesday because I have a busy day of classes tomorrow and probably DnD after classes unless people have to cancel.Have a good night or day!
>>40599117"I understand, after what the last counsel did to you and your sister. You'll need to keep checking in on them, maybe even befriend a few and rely Eerika's spies. Things will smooth out, I know they will."We give him a kind and reassuring smile."But that's not something you need to worry about right now; you're on holiday. So you'll be spending the next day enjoying yourself, but remember that we may not have caviar on the ready."
Don't mean to bump again, but when are we getting paid for making it to Mineshi, and now Shibashikha? We're owed 2,000 from copper!Also the spells Divination, Ward, and Fire Bolt should be added to Tanssija's spells inventory.
>>40599467I think the deal was if we stuck on the whole trip we get paid at the end of the trip but we get paid more or something? I'll have to reread that bit.
