  8. [2017-06-28 13:34:48] * Bookwright Shockingly, he wrote a book.
  9. [2017-06-28 13:34:57] <Bookwright> /me Well, that's not really true. His friends wrote the book. He just wrote all their words down, bound them in a dozen volumes of various thickness, and sent them to the Followers library for cataloguing. He's pretty sure that nobody's read it yet. Secretly, he hopes that Littlepip will get a chance to read it. Eventually. Maybe. His picture book received much more attention (relatively),...
  10. [2017-06-28 13:34:57] <Bookwright> his regret. He wished he'd been able to afford a camera sooner, afforded the opportunity to take more pictures. Oh well.
  11. [2017-06-28 13:35:16] * Bookwright Most of his equipment was sold to finance further expeditions. The armor, while it had saved his hide repeatedly, was too heavy and far too intimidating to wear all the time. So he's back in traveling clothes. The MASR was sold to a weapons collector. Pew-Pew, and its plans, was donated to the Followers as a curiosity. Other curious, such as the Recollector, its black opal with its horrific...
  12. [2017-06-28 13:35:16] * Bookwright ...memory, a certain memory orb, and a few other oddities were also donated.
  13. [2017-06-28 13:35:27] * Bookwright The jukebox gun still sits in his holster, but he doesn't find much use for it these days. He did spend a little money to pretty it up though. Just a little bit of damascened scrollwork, reading: "CONDEMNED TO REPEAT IT".
  14. [2017-06-28 13:35:35] * Bookwright Sgt. Donner's tags were returned to the NCR, and eventually, to his next of kin.
  15. [2017-06-28 13:35:42] * Bookwright Bookwright's got a picture he takes with him everywhere. It's a bit tattered, and there are crease lines in it. Sometimes he takes it out and smiles at it before he puts it away.
  16. [2017-06-28 13:35:56] * Bookwright Sometimes, when no-one is looking, he looks on it, and cries.
  17. [2017-06-28 13:36:05] * Bookwright That doesn't happen often.
  18. [2017-06-28 13:36:19] * Bookwright He's not going to stay in town long as it is. He wants to get back out there. There's plenty of tribes out there, on the fringes, that could easily dry up in the furnace heat of the expanding NCR. Or swept away by the coming monsoon of the Enclave. He's got more film now. And a holotape recorder. Don't want to miss anything.

  31. Get’s visor was flickering badly, she could barely see single images in a fog of statics, but it was still enough. The foal was sleeping peacefully next to her on the bed while Parlay was trying to buzz around making as little noise as she could. The light in the room was very low and the mare’s cybernetic visor wasn’t making it any better.
  33. “She’ll be fine, it’s a promise.” Sonica’s voice came from behind, Get Lost didn’t move and kept smiling at her daughter.
  35. “I know. Thanks for everything, Son.”
  37. In the end those cybernetics had a price. The operation had been hurried and it wasn’t possible to completely prepare the mare’s body during that emergency, so her nerves slowly started to deteriorate. At the beginning it was more like a nuisance, but in less than an year it became clear to the cyberdoctor that she was doomed in no more than another six months.
  39. By the time Get found out about her remaining lifespan she was already pregnant and living together with Dr. Sonica. The two mares accepted the news in silence.
  41. The brainwave expert tried one more time to make her friend change her mind like she tried so many times already. “There is still time, we can boot that old maneframe in the mountains and transfer-” She was stopped even before she could finish the sentence.
  43. “It wouldn’t be the same, please don’t insist. Let me hug her while I still can.” Sunny Solaris, a small foal with white ivory coat and a wonderful magenta mane, was sleeping soundly right next to her, Get gently stroke the tail of her daughter. Some times it was harder than usual having no eyes and wanting to cry.
  45. “Parlay, please take care of your sister. When I will be gone you’ll be the one in charge, don’t make her feel alone… and you too, please: don’t feel lonely, she’s your sister, she will always stand by your side.”
  47. It was really hard to move her hooves: all the neural connections in the spinal cord were wired to the brain cybernetically and had already became useless. Almost all of the voluntary muscles had almost stopped moving at this point, and she already had two episodes of her lungs stop working in the middle of the night. She was living with time stolen from meds and drugs.
  49. The little flying saucer replied with a serie of beeping noises that made the foal turn on the other side, Get smiled and muttered. “Good girls, mommy is so proud of both of you...” The mare put her head on the pillow, turning off the visor and trying to ease the headache.
  51. Sonica sighed and rested her muzzle on the fellow scientist’s neck. “Don’t worry, they won’t starve for sure. This is not the good old bazillionaire Solaris Inc, but New Sonic Flare Works is making more money that we could spend anyway. I will take care of both of them.”
  53. “I’m sorry, Son… I’m leavin you alone… But I can’t do it. One thing is to create a new artificial intelligence, but mind transfer is not right.”
  55. “I know, I’m sorry for asking so many times... But even if it was so little time, I was happy with you.” Tears fell from the mare’s muzzle.
  57. “Thank you… I couldn’t hope for a better way to go… That is, besides going out big with the whole lab detonating all the way up to the Moon.”
  59. This stole a short giggle from the fellow scientist. “I swear, how can you be so silly even now?”
  61. The white mare was smiling too, but every single malfunction alarm was ringing in her head. This was it. “Parlay, Sonica… I love you… Please tell Sunny that I love her too, that she won’t be alone… never… And tell the old crew that I’m just scouting ahead, okay? I bet they’ll be really mad...” She kept smiling. “It’s time.”
  63. A cocktail of painkillers and sleeping drugs was injected in the neck. She felt sad, but at peace.
  65. “Open console, admin mode. General management, halt all failsafe programs, disconnect Phoenix Implant from the system, set permanent shutdown execution parameter to: brain activity reaching R.E.M. phase.”
  67. With one last movement Get softly hugged Sunny while Parlay buzzed next to her and Sonica kept crying in silence.
  69. “Maybe I’ll finally meet my mom too...” With a last long sigh, the cybermare slipped into her final dream.
  72. Music (The Ink Spots - We'll Meet Again
  75. We’ll meet again, don’t know where, don’t know when
  77. Get was in a border town filled with many busy ponies, it was a nice warm day and she had a good feeling about it.
  79. But i know we’ll meet again some sunny day
  81. There was a large warehouse on the other side of the street. A small group of wasteland adventurers was standing in front of it. There was a couple of ponies, an alicorn or maybe they had been two? A large hellhound and a griffon were also joining the team.
  83. Keep smiling through just like you always do
  85. The group was already going inside but they all stopped as if they were waiting for her. Without a single moment of hesitation, she rushed into the office with all the others hoping that this job would have let her finally make some friends…
  87. Till the blue sky drives the dark cloud all away

  97. Following the events in the Zebra Lands, the first thing Goldy did was get word out to Nexus that the ghoul with Lionheart was, in fact, a changeling. She then hesitantly joined the effort to go help the Zebras of Roam get back on their hooves and advocated for a fair treatment of Changelings and the Enclave that was based off of treating each other with dignity. This went on for around nine months, during which she accepted an apprenticeship offer from Golden Buckle, who graciously helped fund the destroyed infrastructure of Roam after dealing with the megaspell frame. After the nine months, Goldy got her adorable crystal ewe, went home, baked a pie, ate it, and slept, and repeated this process for about a week. Mwana may have helped.
  98. After this “vacation”, Goldy went to make amends with her brother off in Nexus, who had shown visible concern after hearing that she was one of the crewmembers on Crimson Caravan 5. He, much like Golden, found Mwana adorable. Golden found this sudden shift of his sexuality unusual at first, but accepted it under the condition that Mwana was /her/ cuddlemuffin. They made amends and Goldy went back to finish her apprenticeship with Golden Buckle. After some time, his health had diminished to the point where he couldn’t maintain the company, and with no biological heirs, the company had been put on Golden’s shoulders.
  99. She’d wasted no time in funding distilleries and farms in disaffected areas in Roam, The Enclave Thunderhead, the Crystal Kingdom, and Froggy Bottom Bog. She had made deals with the agricultural sector and had bought out Crimson Caravans to staff an ambitious effort to circle trade between these areas. Her international trade network had begun to form, and network of new and refurbished travel methods, mostly comprised of railroads protected by the Enclave, had built between countries and had been colloquially named “The Golden Road”. The profits made had been both used to rebuild the fortune after nearly draining it, and funding charitable funds for assisting ghouls to get radiological treatments, helping feed the impoverished, and improving the infrastructure in towns that she’d built investments in.
  100. Golden and Mwana had a lot of difficulty conceiving children, although still had a lot of fun trying. After a short time, she had went to the Wonderglue factory outside of Littlehorn Academy for a brief time with an escort of Zebra shamans to ask for assistance. There was a period of time where she was unavailable, and touring the jungles near the Thunderhead, but had come back, in nine months producing Awamori and Umeshu Dream. When asked how this came to happen, she simply replied, “We finally found th’ right fuckin’ temple. Some others were fun, but not what we wanted.”
  101. Some of the different products under the Golden Buckle label have dedications to people she knows on the label. Her moonshine, for example, coming from out of Froggy Bottom Bog, had been named White Lightning, with his portrait on the front and featured a short biography about him on the back of the bottle so that his name would never be forgotten. Other products include-

  116. With the changeling Queen exposed and the zebra capital damaged in the chaos of the Seraph attacks, the desire for rekindling the war with Equestria was snuffed as the zebra populace at large realized they had been duped. Naturally, the ponies had no desire to start up an international conflict after all the time they had put into rebuilding their nation after cleansing it, and so there was peace between the ponies and zebras. Perhaps, in time, the ponies might even be able to find a way to employ gardens of Equestria to aid the zebras in cleansing their own megaspell radiation from Anular Mortis and Celestia One.
  117. Regardless, the peace between ponies and zebras, and her role in achieving it, had fulfilled Mitzi’s challenge to her father. A leader in times of conflict, Mantle had originally become Alpha after dealing the deathblow to a dragon that attempted to attack the Ponyville Hellhound Sanctuary for its gems. Bitter about the death of his mate at Splendid Valley, and having only a grudging trust for Fluttershy and the Followers after they treated his sick litter (Mitzi and her brothers and sister), Mantle felt that it was only a matter of time before more equine conflicts would get the Hellhounds caught in the middle and cheated or robbed or hunted.
  118. Mitzi’s challenge had been to prove him wrong; to show that what the Hellhounds needed now was not an Alpha waiting for war, but one willing to embrace peace. With the endorsement of the Hellhounds she liberated from the Enclave, Mitzi was quick to gather support. Her father, though still wary, conceded the challenge after learning of the events in Roam. Mitzi became the Alpha of the Ponyville Hellhound pack, and while there were still those who wished retribution upon the Enclave for their enslavement, and others for the death of the criminal Sonica, Mitzi kept dissent to a minimum in favor of waiting to see if the Enclave might take it upon themselves to offer proper reparation.
  119. She instead turned her attention to the ponies of Equestria, and the NCR in particular. Appointing her brother Benji as an ambassador, she pushed for acknowledgement from the ponies of the Hellhounds right to their ancestral home at Splendid Valley, which the Hellhounds at large still held as being theirs, and that the ponies had, both during the Great War and after, stolen it from them. She hoped a show of good faith from the ponies, much like Fluttershy’s selfless surrendering of ‘her’ home in Ponyville, would help change the Hellhound viewpoint of ponies as being little more than thieves. This was, in addition to wanting to appease the older Hellhounds, a move to secure more land for her kind, even if Splendid Valley was a shell of what it had been once. This was important to her as well, for her next goal would require the extra space.
  120. In her travels, Mitzi had met few Hellhounds outside of the Ponyville pack, and even after the influx of liberated Enclave captives, were only a few hundred in number. Mitzi sent out hellhounds she trusted to seek other packs, hoping to gather together and unite her kind, perhaps one day even making themselves a small nation. Moreover, gathering the Hellhounds together would also make it easier to protect themselves from lingering threats.
  121. Though she was successful in bringing in other small, isolated Hellhound packs, and forming a council between herself and the other Alphas, the Hellhounds in all barely broke a thousand in number, with Ponyville’s pack being the largest thanks to the Enclave liberation. Mitzi was able to secure the council of Alphas in part by taking one of the others, a hound almost as big as she was named Ripple, as a mate, and by helping another female Alpha of a small pack get together with her other brother Rex.
  122. Though she didn’t know it until later, Mitzi’s exposure to the seeds of life had an unexpected boon. Mantle had been considered a marvel for producing a litter of five when most were two or three, but Mitzi’s own fertility became something of a wonder. Consistently producing litters of four or five, and never having to try particularly hard in her mating (which was fortunate in a way, as she had less time than she would have liked for the actual fun part). After five years, Mitzi has mothered twenty-three pups, with more on the way even now as the reunion approaches. Having a number of grandpups to look after did help Mantle mellow out a bit as well, Mitzi even naming her first daughter after Holly, the mother she never knew. Her second daughter was named for her lost sister Gigi (to the delight of their aunt Fifi) Her most recently litter bear the names Noble, Goldy, Booky, and Copy.

  126. [2017-06-28 13:48:49] <Noble_Heart> War leaves scars upon everything it touches. Upon the bodies of those who fight its conflicts. Upon the minds of those who lose the ones they love. It scars the souls of soldiers called to take lives in the name of peace. Sometimes, it even leaves its scars upon the land itself.
  127. [2017-06-28 13:48:50] <Noble_Heart> .
  128. [2017-06-28 13:48:50] <Noble_Heart> The horrors born of the Last War, which saw the world burn and all those fighting in it fall, were so great that even centuries after its end the world still lived with those scars. Roam, perhaps, knew this best of all. For the slow, creeping death of radiation which had spread across Equestria was nothing compared to the terror of the Annullis Mortis. A scar created in the name
  129. [2017-06-28 13:48:50] <Noble_Heart> of peace. To tear the beating heart from their enemies and in an instant stop it.
  130. [2017-06-28 13:48:50] <Noble_Heart> .
  131. [2017-06-28 13:48:50] <Noble_Heart> With the liberation of Roam came new difficulties for the zebras and pegasi alike. Roam itself, despite being free of its changeling overlord, was cut off from land routes by the darkness that stained the ground and sky around it. Even airships were not guaranteed to safely travel over the scorched soil and darkened plantlife which hungered for every living creature to die in its
  132. [2017-06-28 13:48:50] <Noble_Heart> embrace. Twining its way around the city and seeking to crush the life from it as surely as it would any living thing.
  133. [2017-06-28 13:48:50] <Noble_Heart> .
  134. [2017-06-28 13:48:50] <Noble_Heart> To this problem Noble Heart had set her mind. Two centuries ago she had worked upon a project to create new plants in the name of making better soldiers, with only the thought of greatness and not the terrible consequences of her actions in her mind. For two centuries she had borne the weight of those mistakes. Of living beneath the thumb of a monster she helped create. Of seeing
  135. [2017-06-28 13:48:50] <Noble_Heart> the world and people she had loved reduced to ruin. A tragedy of such proportions that she had fled herself in the horror of it all. But here were those alive, who needed aid, someone who knew enough about the problem they faced to make a difference in their lives.
  136. [2017-06-28 13:48:50] <Noble_Heart> .
  137. [2017-06-28 13:48:51] <Noble_Heart> The five years after the Liberation of Roam saw the alicorn travel the wilds of the zebra lands. In secret, quiet places she studied the last remaining copy of the designs for the Black Rose. The megaspell which had doomed Roam and created the Annullis Mortis in its wake. She sought strange plants from stranger places, entreated with Zebra alchemists and shaman alike, searching
  138. [2017-06-28 13:48:52] <Noble_Heart> for a way to put an end to the suffering of all those who suffered its grasp. The zebras and their city alike would be free of a curse wrought by the hubris of ponies.

  142. [2017-06-28 14:15:52] <Mare-Do-Well> 3*CopyCat*
  143. [2017-06-28 14:24:34] <CopyCat> CopyCat stayed with the Enclave Remnants, acting as a sort of mediator and ambassador both internally and externally. With the pegasi finding themselves strangers in a strange land, many of the things they had gotten used to had to drastically change as they settled into their new home. Of course, with change comes challenge and stress, and CopyCat’s talents leant themselves particularly well to soothing strained emotions an
  144. [2017-06-28 14:24:35] <CopyCat> d reaching the best solutions for all involved.
  145. [2017-06-28 14:24:46] <CopyCat> Similarly CopyCat found great success as an ambassador and translator between the Enclave Pegasi and the local zebra. While her natural abilities were much more attuned to other ponies, CopyCat had picked up much about body language, tone, and the simple act of being friendly from her time with the Crimson Caravaners, and this aided her greatly in broking continued peace and communications not just with the Enclave and the zebra,
  146. [2017-06-28 14:24:46] <CopyCat> but, eventually, with the rest of Equestria as well.
  147. [2017-06-28 14:24:59] <CopyCat> CopyCat’s desire was to help the Enclave pegasi to become happier, more welcoming ponies, who no longer had to fight for their place within the world. As the years trotted along, she developed something of a nickname that started as an affectionate joke among the pegasi civilians but which soon spread no matter how much CopyCat herself meekly asked to not be referred to as such. Being a ‘Princess of Friendship’ seemed fa
  148. [2017-06-28 14:24:59] <CopyCat> r too great a title for one such as herself, CopyCat thought. Although being a ‘Princess of Booty’ was not necessarily preferable either.
  149. [2017-06-28 14:25:15] <CopyCat> Throughout it all, CopyCat’s thoughts never strayed far from the friends she’d made during her adventures. Friends who had literally made her the mare she is today. It was through their kindness and compassion and courage and well meaningness and willingness to talk straight with her that CopyCat had managed to reach where she was now. It was thanks to Get_Lost and Bookwright and Shatara and Mitzi and Noble_Heart
  150. [2017-06-28 14:25:16] <CopyCat> and Golden_Dream that she’d found /herself/. And it was a ‘herself’ she was very proud of.
  151. [2017-06-28 14:25:37] <CopyCat> Even now they were always in her thoughts. Always helping her to be strong (in her own way!) and kind and caring. Helping her to make decisions for those she cared out helping and, just as importantly, for herself. No matter the distance that separated them, or the years that would pass between them, or even them slipping from this mortal plane, they would be with her always. Supporting her, guiding her, loving her. CopyCat would
  152. [2017-06-28 14:25:37] <CopyCat> never have to feel lonely again.

  159. [2017-06-28 14:37:31] <Mare-Do-Well> 3"This is the FotA /Mitzi's Grace/ on final approach. My name is Wind Weaver, and I'm bringing in VIPs. Please lower the sonic fence."
  160. [2017-06-28 14:39:26] <Mare-Do-Well> 3There is a crackle, and a voice responds. "This is Empire Tower. We hear you. Lowering the fence in five... four... three... two... one. Sonic fence is lowered. Please enter swiftly. And welcome to the Crystal Empire."
  161. [2017-06-28 14:42:01] <Mare-Do-Well> 3The /Mitzi's Grace/ swoops lower, passing over a line of re-engineered pylons (with the company name "New Sonic Flare Works" stenciled on their sides). A moment later, the storm and the cold disappear, replaced by a bright and sunny Crystal Empire.
  162. [2017-06-28 14:43:14] <Mare-Do-Well> 3Over half of the ancient crystal city is still in ruins. But everywhere, there are signs of rebuilding.
  163. [2017-06-28 14:46:14] <Mare-Do-Well> 3The building that was once the Solaris weapons factory has been re-envisioned as "New Sonic Flare Works". The Ministry of Peace hub has become an outreach house of the Followers of the Apocalypse. And new structures, like the Golden Buckle Distillery, prove a revitalization of the country.
  164. [2017-06-28 14:47:24] <Mare-Do-Well> 3As the /Mitzi's Grace/ banks, spiraling down for a landing, fireworks go off around Empire Tower.
  165. [2017-06-28 14:47:54] <Mare-Do-Well> 3On the ground below, in the courtyard surrounding the Crystal Heart, old friends have gathered.
  166. [2017-06-28 14:49:00] <Mare-Do-Well> 3And one floating robot dances amongst the assorted guests.
  167. [2017-06-28 14:49:25] <Mare-Do-Well> 13Pink-E shoots off another bottle rocket. "Let's get this party started!"

  169. [2017-06-28 14:51:52] * Mitzi chuckles as the fireworks continue. Perched on her shoulder, the orange baby dragon looks up in wonderment. Likewise, at her feet, five Hellhound puppies sit, noses in the air and ears perked, tails wagging as they watch the 'blasting gems'. Mitzi herself is pregnant (again), and mostly staying off her feet.
  170. [2017-06-28 14:52:42] * Solaris_Sisters parlay and sunny join the bottom of the wagon, the little filly is loudly complaining about her big sister robot trying to put some decency into her mane, and a bow on her tail, but sunny doesn't want to look dru-fru, she is a tough pone! like mom!
  171. [2017-06-28 14:53:44] * Bookwright feels nervous. His traveling clothes look tattered. His camera case is battered. But his smile is still there. "So. How've you all been?"
  172. [2017-06-28 14:53:51] <Mare-Do-Well> 3
  173. [2017-06-28 14:54:51] <Mare-Do-Well> 3Citrine Glow trots up and gives Mitzi a hug. "Mitzi! It's been years. You look... big!"
  174. [2017-06-28 14:54:55] * Solaris_Sisters Sunny stares at the weird group of wasteland veterans tilting her head a little, she seems dubious, parlay beep-boops a little at her, she replies "Oh so they're mom's and your friends... they're -weeeeird-..."
  175. [2017-06-28 14:55:33] * Bookwright nods affirmatively. "Yep. Proudly weird, all of us."
  176. [2017-06-28 14:57:08] * Mitzi hugs Citrine Glow back and chuckles. "Dis eez littur number six," she notes, rubbing her belly. She then gestures to the puppies nearby. "Dis eez da furst un. Meet Holly, Gigi, Fido, Rover, und Spot." It was quite easy to tell which one Spot was. Hunter clambors down off of Mitzi and smiles at Citrine. "Hi aunt Glow."
  177. [2017-06-28 14:57:21] * CopyCat has been sampling some of the distillery's finest and is already dancing up a storm like the enthusiastic nerd she is. Twilight would have been in good company. Still, she seems so happy about it that she's inspired a group of crystal ponies (along with a shy pegasus or two who had flown to the Crystal Empire with her) to copy her moves. At this rate her nerd dance will form a craze that will sweep the nation.
  178. [2017-06-28 14:57:41] * Solaris_Sisters parlay bops the filly on the head with a pincer and gets a raspberry in retaliation, then turns to bookie, offers to everypone some sort of tablet. when turned on, it reveals itself a sort of beep-boop to text translator
  179. [2017-06-28 14:59:15] * CopyCat pauses mid-step as she see's Mitzi and Co. disembarking the skywagon, and rushes up to her old friends with a big (and slightly tipsy) smile on her face. "It's so good to see you all again!" she beams.
  180. [2017-06-28 14:59:18] * Bookwright frowns. "This is some sort of... thin, portable computing device? Bah, it'll never take off..."
  181. [2017-06-28 14:59:24] * Golden_Dream looks down at the city. She'd grown a little. She'd probably be happier if she grew a little more, but she didn't complain much to anyone but Mwana. He had the kids today. He insisted that she have this, whatever this was. Between the railroad and the budget that just got back under control, she'd looked very stressed out lately. True to her fashion, she'd worn a dress today, a vest and skirt ensemble. Hunter green and
  182. [2017-06-28 14:59:24] * Golden_Dream golden trim. Her face had the creases of stress and her throat had a croak to it that began each word as if she'd gotten used to yelling and giving speeches. Right now, though, she wasn't thinking about that. She was thinking of that old song. How'd it go? "Should auld acquaintance be forgot and never brought to mind/Should auld acquaintance be forgot in auld lang syne". She got a sweep of a look at everyone on the ship.
  183. [2017-06-28 14:59:24] * Golden_Dream And for a moment, she remembered a day back on the ship, where they were all hanging out below deck, eating something she'd just prepared. Smiling. Tired. Tested.
  184. [2017-06-28 14:59:25] <Mare-Do-Well> 3Citrine Glow smiles brightly. "Ember will want pictures of all the puppies!" She adds, "The Dragonlord sends apologies that She couldn't make it Herself. But really, it's your party. A giant dragon would be a bit of an interruption."
  185. [2017-06-28 15:01:10] * Golden_Dream moved over to Bookie and sat down in front of him. She looked concerned. "Hey there, Bookie. I uh. I bought yer' book." She scratched at the back of her mane. "I never been the type t' dance about th' bush very well. What happened? Y' look haggard."
  186. [2017-06-28 15:01:44] <Mare-Do-Well> 3Crystal ponies walk around, offering drinks and snacks. Summer Harvest has made the party food, with an extremely insistent amount of help from Pink-E.
  187. [2017-06-28 15:02:56] * Noble_Heart looked... Different. Not so different as to be unrecognizeable. She was, after all, still a noticeably purple alicorn. Tucked into her hair behind her ears was a small set of flowers, white and yellow, woven into her mane just slightly. She wore a zebra made cloak around her withers, with several engraved golden collars on her neck baring zebra runes. Perhaps most noticeably
  188. [2017-06-28 15:02:56] * Noble_Heart of her changes is that she actually had a cutie mark. A beaker with a pair of small flowers sticking out of it like a vase. She spent a moment adjusting her wings, stretching her legs in the bubble of warmth among a storm of cold weather and darkness beyond.
  189. [2017-06-28 15:03:01] * Solaris_Sisters sunny is staring in awe at the really fancy dress of goldie, and is totally reconsidering the tough pone career. probably, the beautiful princess thing is better, and speaking of princesses, there are 2 of them! and puppies, a lot of puppies, she has too many things to stare at at once!
  190. [2017-06-28 15:03:05] <Mare-Do-Well> 3
  191. [2017-06-28 15:03:06] * Bookwright smiles. "Thanks. Every bit and bottlecap goes back into financing my expeditions. Mostly, I've been on the road a lot. Taking pictures. Recording stories. Capturing languages. You remember what I was doing back before I first joined up? I went back."
  192. [2017-06-28 15:03:16] * Bookwright suddenly grows somber. "They were all gone."
  193. [2017-06-28 15:04:26] * Bookwright "I can cut off a lot of traveling time with teleportation, but hoofing it is the only way to get anywhere I haven't been yet. I try to to use the wings... It tends to frighten the locals."
  194. [2017-06-28 15:04:30] <Mare-Do-Well> 3Citrine Glow oohs. "I read your book! Loved all the pictures."
  195. [2017-06-28 15:05:21] * Solaris_Sisters sunny offers "i know what books are!" parlay beeps a sigh and tries to trick her into going to play where she won't be a bother
  196. [2017-06-28 15:05:31] <Mitzi> Hunter nods. "Glad Aunt Ember is doing well. Momma Mitzi has been meaning to visit her personally, but Uncle Rex usually has to do it instead." Mitzi stands up and approaches Citrine. "Ember took care uv Hunter fur a while, Uh reallee did want tu thank hur face tu face." The puppies scamper over to join Hunter, running around and yapping excitedly. Thankfully their claws are nowhere near grown enough yet to actually do any serious da
  197. [2017-06-28 15:05:34] <Mare-Do-Well> 3Citrine Glow hears the somber change in Bookwright's tone. "I'm... sorry. Were you close?"
  198. [2017-06-28 15:06:35] * Golden_Dream sighed. She'd gotten used to hearing hard news. She put a hoof on his shoulder (she could do that now), and gave him a stare. "Hey. You know me 'n you could work somethin' out. I'm usin' yer' name after all."
  199. [2017-06-28 15:06:42] <Mare-Do-Well> 3Citrine Glow nods back to Mitzi. "She'd love to see you."
  200. [2017-06-28 15:09:58] <Mitzi> The puppies, with Mitzi talking, are no longer corralled and start running around to inspect the people around. Fido goes to Golden_Dream, Spot to CopyCat, Gigi to Noble_Heart, Rover to Bookwright, and Holly to the Solaris_Sisters. Mitzi herself looks for Wind Weaver, her adopted pack-mate, wanting to catch up with her as well.
  201. [2017-06-28 15:10:33] * Bookwright frowns. "No. Not really. Wherever the Twisted Manes have gone, I can only hope that they carry on their traditions. The area is a thriving earth pony outpost now. Self-described pioneers have already swept away all evidence of the encampents, and the local rocks have been busted up for buildings... taking the petroglyphs with them."
  202. [2017-06-28 15:10:38] * Solaris_Sisters soon the puppies pack gains a white filly with a magent mane too, she's yapping like them and trying to meld with the crowd. parlay, instead floats next to the grown-ups and beeps. on the tablets some text apears "we bought the book with the pictures, sunny loves the one where mom is acting badass... thank you"
  203. [2017-06-28 15:11:42] * Noble_Heart approaches Bookwright and Golden Dream, the slight jangle of metal on metal meeting her each hoofstep. "You should take her up on her offer. She has been nothing if not efficacious in her time leading Golden Buckle's trading empire, after all." Her attention was drawn to the youthful hellhound, offering a hoof to Gigi with a slight smile. "Hello to you as well."
  204. [2017-06-28 15:13:46] <Mitzi> Holly gives the Solaris_Sisters (what was her name again?) a strange look with a tilt of her head, ears flopping to one side. She looks confused at the way she was communicating, and starts giving a deliberate series of yips and growls, as though trying to instruct her on how to speak a language in the language she didn't speak.
  205. [2017-06-28 15:15:09] <Mitzi> Gigi paws at Noble_Heart's hoof. She lets out a series of growling and barking of her own. Mitzi chimes in this time, noting. "She says Hullo Pretty Alpha Ponee."
  206. [2017-06-28 15:15:56] * CopyCat squees, picking Spot up in her wings and hooves and letting the hellhound pup crawl all over the CopyCastle. "Mama Mitzi, your puppies are adorable!"
  207. [2017-06-28 15:16:06] * Golden_Dream chuckles a little. First, because lookit the puppy all quiet and shy and staring at her all curious-like. Second, parlay going all badass and stuff. "Well, I reckon th' best way t' look badass is tryin' not t' be. Just bein' stuck in situations where y' gotta be and handlin' th' problem with grace n'..." She looks up, and smirks at Noble_Heart. "Noblesse. How you doin'? Mind helpin' me out with Bookie here? I got better
  208. [2017-06-28 15:16:07] * Golden_Dream at it, but y'all always had th' better way with words."
  209. [2017-06-28 15:16:17] <Mare-Do-Well> 3Arriving late, Wind Weaver makes her way into the crowd, followed by a medical chair.
  210. [2017-06-28 15:16:50] <Mare-Do-Well> 3On the chair rests an aged pegasus, her coat still buttery yellow, but her remaining mane and tail all turned silver.
  211. [2017-06-28 15:17:26] <Mitzi> Spot seems to take pride as he reaches the peak of the Copycastle. It was almost as tall as Hunter's usual perch atop Mitzi's head. He gives a pleased howl at the newly claimed elevation.
  212. [2017-06-28 15:17:40] * Golden_Dream 's ears perk up. Wait. No. No, holy shit. Fluttershy? "... Well, howdy do. What's one'a th' Elements a' Harmony doin' in a place like this?"
  213. [2017-06-28 15:18:33] * Bookwright shrugs off Golden_Dream's offer. "I'll take half of whatever you think is right. Send the other half to the Followers. They need it more than I do." He smiles as Rover snuffles and yips at him. "Yeah, I'm sure you're right buddy."
  214. [2017-06-28 15:18:47] * Noble_Heart opened her mouth to say something as Fluttershy arrived, looking up in the direction of the new arrival. She was silent for the moment, wondering quietly whether Xero had ever managed to actually speak to Fluttershy, or if the attempts had proven fruitless for the zebra ghost.
  215. [2017-06-28 15:19:09] * Mitzi looks to the chair and gives a little gasp. She kneels (poorly, given her belly) and spreads her arms out to the side, paws flat and pads facing the respected pony. "Hullo Fluttershy." The mare who had saved her life and given up her home deserved nothing less than the utmost respect
  216. [2017-06-28 15:19:48] * Solaris_Sisters while sunny decides to try licking the puppers and estabilish some sort of licking and sniffing comunication, Parlay turns towards fluttershy and beeps in curiosity, then floats a bit behind of the others, waiting to see what happens next
  217. [2017-06-28 15:20:30] <Mare-Do-Well> 3With a patently awesome spooky sound, Mare-Do-Well melts into existence next to Golden_Dream. "Boo!"
  218. [2017-06-28 15:20:58] <Mitzi> Holly is happy to return the licking to Sunny, though apparently the rest is lost in translation in either direction.
  219. [2017-06-28 15:21:02] * Bookwright "I'll be dammed. It's She Herself. Never expected to see her in person. I thought she'd retired!"
  220. [2017-06-28 15:21:23] <Mare-Do-Well> 3Fluttershy smiles and wiggles her hoof in a wave. She's not really capable of much more motion than that anymore.
  221. [2017-06-28 15:21:29] * Golden_Dream jumps up and sharply screams. "TWO. TWO ELEMENTS 'A HARMONY. Jiminy fuckin' Littlepip y' durned ghosty ghost. Mare-Do-Well, where'd you get off t'?"
  222. [2017-06-28 15:21:52] * Golden_Dream corrects herself. "Sorry. Rainbow Dash, where'd you get off t'?"
  223. [2017-06-28 15:22:28] * Mare-Do-Well 3grins. Then physically hugs Golden_Dream. "Check it out. Full physical manifestation. And without any seeds helping."
  224. [2017-06-28 15:23:15] * Mare-Do-Well 3corrects, "And we're not the Elements of Harmony anymore. Haven't been that for a long time. That's gone to other ponies now."
  225. [2017-06-28 15:23:59] <Mare-Do-Well> 3Fluttershy guides her medical chair up towards Mitzi and smiles at all the puppies.
  226. [2017-06-28 15:24:24] * Golden_Dream lets a little surprised gasp sharply let loose from her lungs. "Well, I ain't a hero but that ain't stopped folks from callin' me that." She looks at the buttery eldery mare. "Don't suppose y' ever got t' talk to her yet, didja?"
  227. [2017-06-28 15:24:28] <Mare-Do-Well> 3
  228. [2017-06-28 15:26:29] <Mare-Do-Well> 3Fluttershy nods. In a whisper not caused by shyness, she says, "Xero? We talked for a long time. It's so sad, what happened to her. But... she's at peace now. " Fluttershy either runs out of words, or energy to speak.
  229. [2017-06-28 15:26:56] * Mitzi smiles warmly at Fluttershy. "Eet eez nice tu see yu again. Uh dun really remember da furst time we met."
  230. [2017-06-28 15:27:00] <Mare-Do-Well> 3The ghost of Rainbow Dash nods. "Better place now, right?"
  231. [2017-06-28 15:27:07] <Mare-Do-Well> 3Fluttershy nods.
  232. [2017-06-28 15:27:45] * Mitzi adds, gesturing to her litter. "Dey eez possible tanks een part tu yu as well."
  233. [2017-06-28 15:28:18] <Mare-Do-Well> 3Fluttershy smiles to Mitzi. After a long moment, she whispers, "It's nice to see you too." She looks up to the others. "We wouldn't go without saying goodbye."
  234. [2017-06-28 15:28:28] * Noble_Heart smiles as she spots Rainbow Dask as well. "It is good that she managed to move on. No one should be forced to suffer for their past eternal." She sighed quietly and looked to Fluttershy with a sad expression, but makes no more comments on her.
  235. [2017-06-28 15:28:29] * Golden_Dream smiles. Alright. "... Y'know, there's apparently a suspicion among th' zebra folks here that when you two meet, yer' gonna find y'all's peace. Don't suppose they had a point?"
  236. [2017-06-28 15:29:17] <Mare-Do-Well> 3Fluttershy gives Noble_Heart a look of quiet agreement.
  237. [2017-06-28 15:31:39] <Mare-Do-Well> 3Mare-Do-Well hehs. "We've spent most of the last five years together."
  238. [2017-06-28 15:31:49] <Mitzi> Hunter steps over to Fluttershy and looks on her with admiration. "Momma Mitzi says you saved her and her litter's lives, and lots more besides. Is that true?"
  239. [2017-06-28 15:32:12] * Noble_Heart regards Bookwright again with a smile. "If you ever find yourself short on things to study and document, you might consider returning to Roam. Though there are many things there which are perhaps best left forgotten, it is a city as old as Canterlot, and still shockingly intact despite all the strife it has seen. Turn over any given piece of rubble and you're as likely as
  240. [2017-06-28 15:32:12] * Noble_Heart not to find an entire new history to be recorded."
  241. [2017-06-28 15:33:16] <Mitzi> Spot looks on from the top of CopyCastle at Fluttershy and gives a happy bark.
  242. [2017-06-28 15:34:08] <Mare-Do-Well> 3The ghost of Rainbow Dash rubs the back of her mane. "But yeah," she admits. "We're headed off to Tragedy's End. Got an appointment with Slepnir that's a bit overdue."
  243. [2017-06-28 15:34:30] * Bookwright returns Noble_Heart's smile with interest. "As a matter of fact, I'm going back to Roam next. The NCR's expansion seems to have slowed down, and now that much of the rubble has been cleared, I want to go back. The history of Roam is equally important."
  244. [2017-06-28 15:34:59] * Mitzi looks to Fluttershy solemnly. "Eef dere eez anyun whu deserves peace aftur all dis time, eet's yu."
  245. [2017-06-28 15:35:13] <Mare-Do-Well> 3Fluttershy looks up from the pups long enough to nod, whispering, "It's time."
  246. [2017-06-28 15:35:51] <Mare-Do-Well> 3Fluttershy whispers, "Thank you. Mitzi."
  247. [2017-06-28 15:35:58] * Golden_Dream 's expression goes a bit more flat. "... Tell her Goldy's askin' for th' welcome mat for y'all." She ducks her head, and whispers, "And if y' ever get t' see m' folks, tell 'em we're doin' just fine."
  248. [2017-06-28 15:36:40] * Bookwright smiles at Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash. Fights back tears. "If you're sure. Let me get one last photo, okay?"
  249. [2017-06-28 15:37:08] <Mare-Do-Well> 3Mare-Do-Well agrees, "You got it! Hey, and if we see her, we'll say hello to Get_Lost."
  250. [2017-06-28 15:38:20] * Golden_Dream looks over at the other two "kids" of hers. "Tell her th' same thing, too. I think those two are... Well, I think they're gonna be a hoof full, but I'll try n' keep an eye on 'em."
  251. [2017-06-28 15:40:09] <Mare-Do-Well> 3Rainbow Dash says, "Hey, don't worry. Been watching you guys for the last few years. Trust me. We're leaving the world in good hooves."
  252. [2017-06-28 15:40:31] <Mare-Do-Well> 3Fluttershy whispers, adding, "And paws, claws and talons."
  253. [2017-06-28 15:42:26] * Mitzi chuckles at the addition, making her puppies laugh too, even though they didn't understand whatwas funny.
  254. [2017-06-28 15:43:09] <Mare-Do-Well> 3
  255. [2017-06-28 15:43:46] * Noble_Heart stands quietly as she watches Mare Do Well and Fluttershy. She bows her head with quiet respect.
  256. [2017-06-28 15:44:08] <Mare-Do-Well> 3Wind Weaver watches a while, then gives Mitzi the hug she's been wanting to.
  257. [2017-06-28 15:44:51] * Golden_Dream chuckles. "Well, shoot. I appreciate th' gesture, but I'm just a merchant type." She looks around. "... But I'll try t' keep it on th' upward spiral. Y'all better be rootin' fer me in th' ever after, though."
  258. [2017-06-28 15:45:31] <Mare-Do-Well> 3Across the courtyard, a blast of joyful fanfare erupts from the pink sprite bot as Pink-E begins chatting with Sweet-E.
  259. [2017-06-28 15:47:16] <Mitzi> Mitzi smiles and hugs Wind Weaver tightly.
  260. [2017-06-28 15:47:44] * CopyCat chuckles at her pup-hat, moving in closer with the group around Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash. "We'll do our best. I... I hope that one day all ponies will be able to come together as friends again. All hellhounds and gryphons and zebra, too. I think we're making great strides, even now."
  261. [2017-06-28 15:48:54] * Golden_Dream sighs. "If the reports of th' attempted train robberies on m' desk mean anything, I think we're kinda far off from that point." She looks up. "But one day. One day."
  262. [2017-06-28 15:51:53] * Noble_Heart nods her head. "Roam was not built in a day. But it was built. And so, it can be rebuilt. Equestria as well. It may take time, and effort. There are certainly those who would see it fail. But as long as hope lives in the hearts of those who live and perseverence remains, they will be once more."
  263. [2017-06-28 15:54:05] <Mare-Do-Well> 3Citrine Glow nods.
  264. [2017-06-28 15:54:36] * Bookwright "As long as the memory of the past is recalled, as long as efforts are made to save history, we shall never recede into the darkness again."
  265. [2017-06-28 15:55:32] <Mare-Do-Well> 3"We're working together like never before. And that means a lot," Citrine Glow says. "And it is changing the world. You only need to walk to the edge of the city to see evidence of that."
  266. [2017-06-28 15:56:04] * Golden_Dream looks in front of her. "As long as we keep things bound together, things won't fall apart.
  267. [2017-06-28 15:56:12] * Mitzi smiles. "Ur kind eez more able tu cum und go now. Dere eez still much to make up fur, but ponees at least now know dat we eez not monsters."
  268. [2017-06-28 15:56:42] <Mare-Do-Well> 3Wind Weaver steps back. "Yeah, the windigos are starving. In a few years, they might even die off... if spirits can do that."
  269. [2017-06-28 15:57:31] * Mare-Do-Well 3corrects, "They'll probably go into some sort of sleep. Something a lot like Requiem. They've done it before."
  270. [2017-06-28 15:57:54] * CopyCat stomps her hoof, swaying just a little under the effects of having celebrated this meeting of her friends by drinking one of each of the fine (and mostly alcoholic) products made by Golden_Dream's distilleries that bore her friends' names. "Well when those no good... no-good-niks get caught I shall give them such a talking to!" CopyCat exclaims in a voice sounding like a tipsy schoolmarm.
  271. [2017-06-28 15:58:12] <Mare-Do-Well> 3Wind Weaver ohs. "Still, once they do, the Crystal Empire won't even need the sonic fence anymore."
  272. [2017-06-28 15:58:33] * Mitzi wiggles her ears. "Dat's gud. Ur ears eez still ringeen."
  273. [2017-06-28 16:00:38] <Mare-Do-Well> 3Citrine Glow giggles. "Well, on the bright side, it does keep the wolves away too."
  274. [2017-06-28 16:01:10] * Mitzi chuckles. "Remind me tu tell yu stories uv sum uv da Slate Wulves sumtime."
  275. [2017-06-28 16:01:24] * Bookwright "Good. I can't stand fences. Give me starry skies, any day..."
  276. [2017-06-28 16:06:11] * Noble_Heart nods her head in agreement to Citrine Glow. "Indeed. Very soon, Roam will not require airships to enter and exit the city, either. It is the dawning of a new age, guided by peace and steered by peace."
  277. [2017-06-28 16:07:16] <Mare-Do-Well> 3A few late arrivals finally show for the party. Ditzy Doo arrives, pulling a delivery wagon with extra party supplies which Silver Belle begins to unload while the ghoul refreshes with a bottle of Aqua Pura.
  278. [2017-06-28 16:08:41] <Mare-Do-Well> 3Cheerilee steps out, looking around. It took a bit for the ghoul pegasus to convince her that she should attend. But these friends and their adventure is why she has a new life, and she wanted to thank them now that they're all in one place at one time.
  279. [2017-06-28 16:10:01] <Mare-Do-Well> 3...

  282. [2017-06-28 16:17:45] * Golden_Dream blinks at Copycat's behavior. "Well. I mean. I think y'all had enough, Copycat, but I ain't gonna stop you from buyin' more." She laughs. "So, Citrine. How's Ember doin'? You, uh. Ever set her up like I asked y' to?" And then Ditzy and Cheerilee showed up. This day has been one shock after another. "Well, howdy t' you too! Ditzy, Cheeriee. Ditzy, y' ever get th' hubby back? Cheerilee, How you finding things?"
  283. [2017-06-28 16:22:34] <Mare-Do-Well> 3Ditzy Doo smiles cheerfully and waves. Cheerilee raises her eyebrows. "It has been a learning experience. I used to be a teacher, but now..." She smiles. "I wanted to thank you. *All* of you."
  284. [2017-06-28 16:28:26] * Golden_Dream cranes her neck back. "Well, y' hear that? She wants t' thank us." She calls out to the cabin, laughing a little. "T' be honest, I thought you'd be more upset. What with all the bits of th' world all broken up. What're y' doin' nowadays?"
  285. [2017-06-28 16:29:51] * Noble_Heart gives Cheerilee a polite and well appointed bow. "No thanks are truly necessary. And it is not just us whom you should thank." She straightened up. "Your student did protect you for a very long time. Long enough for us to find you, after all."
  286. [2017-06-28 16:33:36] <Mare-Do-Well> 3Cheerilee nods. "There is so much that I don't know... I don't really have a place in the world like I used to. But for now, I'm helping out Silver Belle run a store in a down called /New/ Appleloosa."
  287. [2017-06-28 16:38:04] <Mare-Do-Well> 3Fluttershy and the ghost of Rainbow Dash move to visit with Cheerilee. Sweet-E slips out of her conversation with Pink-E to trot over and sit, watching the reunion.

  289. [2017-06-28 16:40:44] * Mitzi starts gathering her puppies back up, mostly for the sake of not letting them run off too far. Hunter helps with the corraling
  290. [2017-06-28 16:42:30] <Mare-Do-Well> 3The party continues on as the hour gets late.
  291. [2017-06-28 16:43:16] <Mare-Do-Well> 3When twilight begins to descend, crystals are set aglow, creating a magical atmosphere.
  292. [2017-06-28 16:43:35] * CopyCat places Spot back with Mitzi, smiling as the little pup boasts in pup-barks to his siblings about having climbed the Tallest Not-Mom Thing.
  293. [2017-06-28 16:43:52] <Mare-Do-Well> 3A very aged, buttery-yellow pony and the ghost at her side silently slip away.
  294. [2017-06-28 16:44:28] <Mare-Do-Well> 3Wind Weaver gives Mitzi one last hug, and promises to join her for lunch when she returns.
  295. [2017-06-28 16:45:52] <Mare-Do-Well> 3As Pink-E shoots out more fireworks to celebrate against the darkening sky, the /Mitzi's Grace/ lifts off quietly into the air, circling around Empire Tower one more time.
  296. [2017-06-28 16:45:54] * Golden_Dream gives Fido a little cuddle before sending the pooch back. "... Of all the money, that 'ere I spent..." She looks at the group. "I spent it in good company."
  297. [2017-06-28 16:46:57] <Mare-Do-Well> 3Mwana shows up to the party late, the foals put to bed. He strides up to Golden_Dream wearing his most pirate-y formal suit.
  298. [2017-06-28 16:48:02] * Golden_Dream immediately sprints at Mwana, cuddling right under his chin. "They didn't run y' too haggard, did they? They get a lil' rambunctious when I'm away."
  299. [2017-06-28 16:48:22] <Mitzi> Fido gnaws on Golden_Dream's hoof before being scooped up by momma Mitzi. Spot seems disappointed about leaving his perch, but his siblings all look impressed at the heights he scaled.
  300. [2017-06-28 16:49:33] * Bookwright nudges Shatara. "You've been quiet this whole time. You sure you don't want to say hello?"
  301. [2017-06-28 16:56:15] <Mare-Do-Well> 3Mwana puts on brave daddy face. "Nothing I could not handle."
  302. [2017-06-28 16:57:13] <Mare-Do-Well> 3Jugeote has been likewise quiet at Shatara's side. But smiles and waves a hoof at Mwana.
  303. [2017-06-28 16:57:50] <Mare-Do-Well> 3Jugeote leans close to Shatara and whispers into his ear, "He doesn't look a /thing/ like a real pirate."
  304. [2017-06-28 16:58:34] <Mare-Do-Well> 3...
  305. [2017-06-28 16:59:29] * Golden_Dream gasps, bringing her hooves to her face. "My brave swashbuckler!" She gives him a kiss on the cheek.
  306. [2017-06-28 16:59:46] <Mare-Do-Well> 3"This is the FotA /Mitzi's Grace/ on exiting path. My name is Wind Weaver, carrying VIPs. Destination: Tragedy's End. Please lower the sonic fence."
  307. [2017-06-28 17:01:01] <Mare-Do-Well> 3A voice responds over the radio, clear as crystal. "This is Empire Tower. We hear you. Lowering the fence in five... four... three... two... one. Sonic fence is lowered. Please exit swiftly. And safe travels to you, in all the places your wings may take you."
  308. [2017-06-28 17:01:35] <Mare-Do-Well> 3--- End of Campaign ---
