Session 60.0 Kendell2
The human Pinkie Pie blinked. "Hey! I just got a message in Rainbows and Crystals!"
"So did I..." said Sunset. Everyone nodded.
They opened the message and read it...
'Dear (Screen Name)
Thank you for your feedback and betaing the game and exploring the creativity of the game.
And also for saving World of Horsecraft from a hacker (hope you enjoyed the capes).
As a sign of our gratitude, we would like to use your houses in the official trailer to debut at our upcoming convention to showcase the possibilities the game's free spirited nature allows.
Signed Radiant Hope."
Pinkie Pie's added an 'especially you, Pinkie Pie' before the creativity part.
"...I'm game for it," said Sunset.
The others nodded and all pressed yes.
Rainbow Dash rubbed her head. "Have we really been that creative?"
"Yah have a rainbow roller coaster surrounding your house," Applejack pointed out.
"Yeah, which is awesome!" said Rainbow.
"And I have a Ferris Wheel for my attic!" Pinkie Pie exclaimed with a grin.
"Wow...guess we've been having even more fun with this game than we expected," Sunset replied, giving a smile.
"Well it is relaxing...and more importantly innocent," Rarity said. "Unlike certain other games..." she said, looking at a certain teacher simulator game involving murder still sitting on Rainbow's desktop.
Radiant Hope smiled, sitting at her computer as she got the replies. "Glad this game will finally be loved..." she said, remembering how the first time around they'd tried it some of the Betas had been pretty harsh about it. It just needed a little refining was all and it had become something people could enjoy.
Session 60.1 Alex Warlorn
"BWAAHAHAH! Ie zhall destroy ze dam! Zen! Ie zhall save the city! And everyone vill call me, a heroooooo!!"
"Not so fast Dr. Spectrum!"
"MARE DO WELL!!!! VO VILL NOT STOP ME!!!"
"Oh yeah I wil!"
Mare Do Well heroically punched the super villain in the face, then the mighty masked mare swept up the explosive, and flew high into the sky, tossing the bomb even higher, where it exploded harmlessly, giving a show to the people of the city.
"YEAH MARE DO WELL! THE REAL HERO OF MARETROPOLIS!"
"NO! NO! IE AM ZE HERO!!!" Squirmed Dr. Spectrum after she'd been tied up, and given to the police.
Mare Do Well didn't stick around for fortune or fame, she merely slipped into the shadows, waiting for when she'd be needed once more.
"Wow! That new Mare Do Well comic is so exciting!" Rainbow Dash admitted emerging from the enchanted comic. "I wonder where they got the idea for that loud mouth show boating Dr. Spectrum though. I bet it was Trixie right?"
Session 60.2 JDMiles
Back in the Animania desert, roadrunner Dash continued to race across the landscape before stopping at a cliff, on the opposite the canyon was none other than Zephyr... wearing the Mare Do Well outfit.
"You're not getting away this time Dash, with this new superhero outfit I have the means and gadgets to finally catch you and sweep you off your feet!" The coyote proclaimed proudly.
"Oh, this oughta be good." Rainbow Dash smoked Dashi started munching on some popcorn. "Okay Zephyr, make me swoon." She mumbled sarcastically.
Zephyr smiled under his mask as he left off the edge and spread his cape. "Gliding Cape activate!" He called out as he fell, however nothing happened as he continued to plummet to the ground. "What the-activate! Activate, activate, ACTIVATE DAMN IT!!" He continued to scream as he plummeted to the bottom of the canyon, eventually crashing with a satisfying *poof*.
"Ah... sweet, sweet catharsis..." Rainbow Dash smirkedâ€‹ as she got up and started to stretch. However she heard some coughing and looked down to see her pursuer crawling out of the body-shaped hole.
"I don't get it! Why didn't it activate?!" Zephyr mumbled to himself, only for a piece of paper to flutter down from above onto his face. Pulling it off he read over it and his jaw dropped in irritation. "GLIDING CAPE NOT INCLUDED!? ARE YOU KIDDING ME!?"
"You really need to start reading the instructions on those things... and while you're at it get a refund." Rainbow Dash chuckled.
"No matter! I'll just use Plan B!" Zephyr shouted as he pulled out a grappling hook and fired it towards the top of the canyon. The hook latched itself between a few rocks and he immediately started pulling himself up... only for the hook to dislodge itself and accidentally yank a giant boulder over the edge of the cliff... which crushed Zephyr before he had a chance to scream.
"MEEP-MEEP!" She honked before taking off down the road once again.
Session 60.3 Devcon101
Twilight and co. were playing an O&O version of the popular flick “Specter Deflectors.”
“The violet mare stares at you as she strokes the chin of the monstrous, dog-like creature beside her.” Twilight read. “The mare takes trots down a few steps, eyeing you like a shark.”
Applejack opened her mouth to speak, but Rarity interjected. “Darling, I think I should take care of this one.” She cleared her throat as she moved her miniature forward. “Madame, as a duly designated resident of the city of Manehattan, I must request you take your supernatural business elsewhere, preferably to your place of origin or nearest convenient parallel dimension.”
Applejack rolled her eyes. “As if a god would listen ta that. Didn’t work in the movie, won’t work ‘ere.”
Rarity shrugged. “Worth a shot.”
Twilight rolled a die, before continuing. “The mare simply stares at you, before asking a simple question...” Twilight cleared her throat, before continuing in the deepest, raspiest voice she could muster. “Are you a god?”
Rainbow Dash chuckled. “You sound like the alien from Hoofward the Duck!”
Twilight narrowed her eyes in frustration. “I’m doing my best, okay?”
Rarity tapped her chin in thought. Of course, she could always say no and let the game continue like the movie. Or...well, she had wondered what would’ve happened if they said yes...
Rarity gave a smile. “Why of course I am darling! And so are they.” She waved her hoof over to the rest of the party.
Applejack frowned. “Wait, what? I’m n-” She was cut short as Rainbow put a hoof to her mouth. While she admired her friend’s honesty, now was not the time for it.
Twilight thought for a moment. “Roll a Deception check.”
Rarity tossed the die after giving it a kiss for good luck. “Oooh! Natural 20! And with my bonus, that comes out to a 28.”
Twilight nodded, rolling a die of her own. Upon looking at the results, she blinked.
“The deception...works. The mare smiles, casually trotting down the steps, dogs in tow. “Ah, excellent. It’s been so long since I’ve seen another!” She moves past you to the edge of the building. “Well, fellow gods, shall we destroy this mortal realm together? It’s been too long since I’ve had a good world-ending.”
Rarity blinked, putting on a forced smile. “Actually, darling, you really don’t want to end this world. We’ve got a...um...treaty! Yes, a treaty with a rival pantheon to not destroy it. Wouldn’t want an entire pantheon on our backs for breaking it, would we?”
After requesting another deception check, upon which Rarity rolled high again (not a natural 20, but up there), Twilight rolled another die, before responding. “Hmm...understandable. But at least accompany me to another world to end that one. It won’t be long, I assure you. Just a little fun outing of gods.”
Rarity began to sweat a little. “Um...I’m afraid we can’t, darling, because...the pantheon says we have to stay here or else the treaty is void. Sorry.”
One last deception check was made, which was surprisingly high once again, and Twilight rolled one last die, before blinking. “The mare is upset, but nods in understanding and...leaves, dogs in tow. The portal closes, and the storm overhead begins to disperse.”
Rarity smiled with pride. “And that, darlings, is how it’s done.”
Applejack glared at Rainbow Dash, who still held her hoof over her mouth, letting out an angry comment which was muffled. Rainbow looked over, and with a quick “sorry” and guilty smile removed her hoof.
Pinkie Pie looked down, frowning with disappointment. “Aw, I wanted to eat the remains of the giant marshmallow pony!”
Session 60.4 Alex Warlorn
"So we're gonna play O&O with your mom and dad?!" Scootaloo asked excited.
Rainbow Dash nodded. "Yeah... SOMEPONY blabbed that table top and role play games were all the rage in Ponyville right now... "
That the Sirens themselves might have sparked the fad themselves to begin the groundwork of their scheme to conquer two worlds, was quietly ignored so not to ruin the hobby for countless equines.
"Well I think it's cool!"
That when the cloud house's door burst open...
"RAINBOW DASH! WHO IS THIS MARE!? IS THIS A CHANGELING?! WHAT IS GOING ON HERE?!"
Rainbow Dash's jaw dropped. "Mom... and mom?"
"... I should be confused and scared, but I don't feel like complaining." Said the pegasus stallion of the house.
"Dash, does your dad look different? Dash! Dash!"
"RAINBOW!" The two mares closed in at the fainted Element of Loyalty.
"Hm?" The Doctor checked the control panel from his time machine. "Did time just get smooshed again? I thought the princesses just fixed this timeline!"
Session 60.5 Grogar-the-oneser
"I HATE YOU TIMELINES!" Luna roared as she and the other deities were dealing with the paradox.
"I thought you fixed them all from the last time," Celestia snapped.
"So I missed one, I can't be expected to remember every detail, what am I Twilight?" Discord said defensively.
"Well now we have to deal with this," Celestia said annoyed.
"Oh calm down, we just make it two separate timeline where this." At this Discord check the board. "Bow Hot Hoof, still Rainbow Dad but has a different mother in those timelines. Should be simple since he looked like an older version pony she was with when they announce Cloudsdale will not host the Equestrian Game."
"Then how do you explain the young one appearing at Hearthwarming Eve in Twilight's castle?" Celestia growled.
"Animation error." Noticing Celestia look, Discord added. "What, it worked in the first cartoon of that robot show. Plus it let said animation error get there own being."
(look under generic gone pro in this link tfwiki.net/wiki/Generic)
"Actually according to clipboard, this Rainbow Blaze was already his own pony, but some word of 'writer' he not Rainbow Dash dad, so we could say he was her uncle." Cadence said.
Session 60.6 Mtangalion
“Would you all please try to stay in character!?” bellowed Pinkie Pie.
Celestia, Luna, and Discord all stopped what they were doing and slowly turned to stare at her.
Pinkie scratched her mane, grinning. “Eh heh… I’ll just be in my trailer. Cause I’m a pony! Get it?” She dodged a solar flare and several comets, hastily galloping away.
Discord glanced at the fourth wall, sighing. “Moving on…” He snapped his claws.
“It’s a simple question,” said Princess Twilight. “Which set of parents do you remember being real?”
Rainbow was sprawled on the couch with an icepack on her head. “That’s the trouble, Twi! I remember both of them! Like, I told my mom right away when I became a Wonderbolt, AND she never knew until Scootaloo spilled the beans.”
Bow Hothoof nudged Twilight, grinning. “By the way, Princess, I love your casual, mare of the people look.”
Windy Whistles nodded enthusiastically. “You’re definitely the number one Best Princess currently in our home at the moment!”
“Don’t you mean my home?” said Rainbow Dash Sr. “Assuming I can ever reclaim it from all the junk you brought with you.”
Discord appeared in a flash. “These pesky timelines are just not coming unglued.”
Twilight grimaced. “So, how bad is that?”
Discord stroked his goatee. “Do you know how in number theory, if you can’t come up with any numbers in between two other numbers, those other numbers are the same number?”
“Huh?” said Windy.
“Beg pardon?” said Bow.
“What about it?” asked Twilight.
“Not helping with my headache,” grumbled Rainbow.
Rainbow Sr. raised a hoof. “Is that some sort of analogy for how these worlds are so similar that it’s difficult to distinguish one from another?”
“Not really,” Discord admitted. “I just love making ponies argue for hours about whether point nine repeating equals one.”
The human world wasn’t doing much better. Rainbow Dash and Sunset Shimmer were both on a couch with icepacks on their heads, because Sunset had tried to read Rainbow’s mind after the trouble started.
“Sorry, guys,” groaned Rainbow. “Mom and dad found mom and dad’s Crystals and Rainbows beta software and made their own accounts. It wasn’t me, honest!”
Applejack held up a tablet, showing them the three-hundred foot cloud sculpture of Rainbow Dash that now adorned the game’s version of Cloudsdale. “You know, Ah almost believe you,” said AJ, grinning.
Session 60.7 Alex Warlorn
Playing a game of chess (Rarity being rather frustrated at repeatedly having to explain the rules to Applejack), two mares chattered.
"How the heck did ya not notice Sweetie Belle's tastes had changed considering all the time you've spent with her in the past? Considering that ya seem to spend more time raising her than your parents do." Applejack asked.
"Don't remind me! I MEANT that it's been so long since we had one of our little outing like that, most of our time together has been at home!" Rarity said. "Running a business is exhausting."
Session 60.8 Devcon101
The mane six were one again beta testing Enchanted Entertainment’s grandiose sci-fi sandbox game, Galaxia. Currently, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy were at one of the cantinas spread around the planets for social interaction with NPCs and to find job opportunities for the various factions.
The cantina was currently rather peaceful. Various races sat at tables or the bar, talking, drinking, some even playing some intergalactic gambling games. Rainbow, Fluttershy and Pinkie sat around a table, enjoying the drinks as Pinkie and Rainbow tested out one of the intergalactic games players could play, this being a holographic, interegalactic variation of chess, Fluttershy watching.
The peaceful atmosphere was soon broken as someone suddenly let out a scream of pain, grasping at their chest and falling over. Patrons looked over in shock, slowly backing up as the alien flipped onto their back, fainting as...something tore free from their chest. The most likely guess any of the three had was that it was a new creature they added in. Fluttershy stared in fear, bug eyed, getting up and backing up. Rainbow promptly got out her weapon and pointed it at the creature, preparing to fire, before something very, very odd occurred.
The thing pulled out a top hat and cane, putting the top hat on its head and began to sing and dance.
“♪ Hello my baby, hello my honey, hello my ragtime gal! Send me a kiss by wire, baby my heart’s on fire!♪”
Rainbow Dash stared in confusion. “What in heck?” she mumbled, too distracted by the sight to see the notice of a gained achievement for viewing this little easter egg in the bottom right corner of her vision.
The creature continued its number. “♪ If you refuse me, honey you’ll lose me, and you’ll be left alone! So baby telephone, and tell me I’m your-♪” The creature’s little routine was cut short as it was suddenly blasted, leaving nothing but a pile of dust where it had been.
Everyone in the bar slowly turned to where the shot had came from, all laying their eyes on Pinkie, who still held out her smoking blaster. She held it up to her mouth and blew on it, the smoke dissipating. There was a moment of awkward silence.
“...What? Did any of you want to do it?”
“What even was that thing?” Fluttershy asked. The bar had returned to relative normalcy after the singing creature had died, though there were notably less patrons now. The other two shrugged.
“Some parody of the Centimorphs from Extraterrestrials, I think” Pinkie said, not sure herself.
The three soon finished up playing the game and were about to head out, when a certain white unicorn mare in a suit of orange armor entered.
Rarity smiled through the green visor on her helmet. “There you darlings are! I’ve been wondering where you got off to.”
Fluttershy stared at something behind Rarity. “Um, Rarity...what is that?”
Behind the armored mare floated what looked like a small blue jellyfish, with five glowing green eyes within its translucent body and small teeth around the rim of its mouth. It let out an inhuman chirp.
“Oh, him? He’s my new pet! Isn’t he just adorable?” Rarity smiled at it.
Rainbow Dash raised a brow, remembering seeing a similar creature in the game. “Isn’t that one of those life-sucking parasites?”
Rarity frowned. “Yes, but a baby version they made available as a pet. It’s attack setting isn’t even implemented yet. Wouldn’t hurt a fly, I assure you.” Looking up, she blinked, frowning. “Oh now where has he gone off to?”
Moments after a NPC alien that resembled a fly zipped by, yelling “GET IT OFF ME!” as the baby parasite latched on.
Rarity gave a guilty smile. “...Okay, so maybe the attack setting just isn’t fully implemented...”
Session 60.9 JDMiles
Back in the Animania desert, Zephyr smiled as he quickly strapped a jetpack on. "This time, this time for sure! This time I'll finally catch her!" He happily proclaimed as he pressed a button, starting it up. A second later he was sent flying across desert. "WHOOOOOOHOOOOOOO!!!"
Meanwhile, Roadrunner Dash had come across another "Plot Hole"... in the form of a hastily painted-on tunnel. "Wow really? That's just lazy...."
"HERE I COME MY LOVE!!" Zephyr called out as he raced towards his target. Dash sighed and simply stepped to the side, expecting him to crash into the wall.... only for him to fly right through it! The surface rippling with water, much to Dash's surprise.
"I... what the-huh?!" She stuttered for a moment as she stared at the portal, wondering if she should go in if Zephyr was on the other side...
A few seconds later however, Zephyr ran out of the portal, now stuck in the form of a cat. "For the love of Celestia, STAY AWAY FROM ME!!" Zephyr screamed in terror. He was pursued by what looked like a lime green skunk with a pinkish-red stripe and was wearing a bandana with a floral pattern.
"Come back, my love!" Tree Hugger happily called out, playfully hopping after him "Let us become entwined together in the way of cosmic vibration and lay engulfed in our act of cosmic bliss!"
"....meh, not my problem! MEEP-MEEP!" She putted before zooming through the Plot Hole, hoping to reunite with her friends...
Session 60.10 Alex Warlorn
"Why aren't we doing anything for Star Mares 40th anniversary Rainbow Dash?" Scootaloo asked, "I had a buncha stuff that would be great for LARPing!"
Rainbow Dash shrugged, "Meh! I l lost all interest after friggin' FLIM AND FLAM bought the rights to it! And threw out my favorite, I mean, the sequel novels."
