  5. >Cadence gets up, her face covered in green goop
  6. >You recognize it as blood
  7. >Changeling blood
  8. >Its not a lot, but enough to make you nauseous
  9. >Anon helps her up and Cadence looks at you
  10. >“Did she just EXPLODE?!”
  11. >She looks around nervously, at you and the green on you, then at the hole, with has spinkles of blood on it
  12. >“Please tell me that bukkake is how changelings say goodbye, and that she DIDN’T really  just explode!”
  13. >You look at her, dropping the tail in the process and do the only reasonable thing you can
  14. >You shrug
  15. >She follows your body to the ground
  16. >Yep
  17. >That’s a tail stump
  18. >Cadence screams and falls back into Anon
  19. >Anon squeals and staggers back
  20. “CHRYSALIS FOR THE LOVE OF GOD WHATS GOING ON”
  21. >On the other end you hear Chrysalis calling out another order to the hive
  22. >Then silence
  23. >>“Ling the changeling I had on watch was knocked out, I’m on my way”
  24. “Where the hell are you!”
  25. >>“Don’t yell at your mother! I’m below the castle”
  26. “WHich one!”
  27. >You’re pacing
  28. >>“The old one. Which castle am I suppose to be under? The crystal wibbly wobbly abandoned tree?”
  29. >She has a point
  30. >>“Okay I’m heading their way”
  31. >More silence
  32. >Its deafening
  33. >A few moments later, Chrysalis pops back in
  34. >>“She’s alive!”
  35. >You gasp
  36. “She’s alive guys!”
  37. >Anon gets a bright smile, as does Cadence
  38. >“Oh thank celestia” Cadence says, falling back
  39. >Into your Anons arms
  40. >One of these days you’re going to slap a hoe
  41. >>“It looks like the portal cut off her tail, her hoof at the ankle, and knocked her out. It cauterized the wound though so not a lot of blood loss”
  42. “Clearly you havnt seen it here”
  43. >You reply, a bit terrified still
  44. >The three of you sit around the bloody tail on the ground
  45. >Cadence wiping her face
  46. >Anon squatting with an intent look of though
  47. >You standing and staring
  48. >In front of you lays a full changeling tail, from the base were there is bone, all the way to the tip  of the hair
  49. >You saw it twitch, but it stopped and is now just leaking green blood to the ground
  50. >Beside it is also a hoof, just the ankle downward
  51. >It is not bleeding
  52. >It smells like white glue
  53. >On the other end of the portal, Chrysalis is with Shell, checking her over
  54. >Her tail stump, or lack there of, and hoof, were cauterized immediately so she lost little blood
  55. >Chrysalis, on the other hand of all this, is over joyed
  56. >We did it we did it! She repeats several times
  57. >The hive is aglow with chatter by now
  58. >You can’t even hear yourself think
  59. >But the important question has been answered
  60. >You can get back home
  61. “S..should we bury it”
  62. >Anon looks up at you
  63. >“I think so”
  64. >Cadence nods in agreement “yeah”
  65. >Anon gets up and heads to the truck, getting an entrenching tool out and going over to the place where you three have gathered
  66. >He doesn’t give very deep, maybe two feet, and drops the tail and hoof into the hole
  67. >Covering up it fast and easy enough
  68. >He folds the tool back up and puts it back in place, waving the two of you on
  69. >You both follow and get in your respective places
  70. >You’re becoming fond of the truck bed, it reminds you of flying with the swarm, all that air flying around
  71. >With the rope firmly around you, and Cadence in the passenger seat, you shove your head through the window and grin at them
  72. “Onward!”
  73. >You point your hoof at the road
  74. >Anon throws the truck in gear and gets going!
  75. >Cadence face hooves at your exaggerated expressions
  76. >You don’t give a fuck
  77. >we adventure now
  78. >That being said
  79. >Adventure is a broad term and you end up falling asleep, head in the cab, while Anon drives
  80. >When you arrives at Memphis, Anon reaches back and looks at your sleeping form
  81. >He smirks and boops your snoot
  82. >You awaken with a gasp and glare at him
  83. >Anon quickly looks away, putting on his most innocent face
  84. >Crafty human
  85. >you shake your head and get up
  86. “yes?”
  87. >“We’re here. I think. I need to poke around and look for somewhere he would have went to eat. I assume close to his venue”
  88. >Anon shows you on his phone a venue name
  89. “Has to be something with grease or steaks”
  90. >You point out, going to touch the screen
  91. >Your hoof scratches it
  92. >Fug
  93. >Anon glares at you then wipes his cellphone
  94. >Looking at the screen you notice under the scratch is a bbq joint
  95. “That’s it”
  96. >Anon zooms in on the spot “Baby Jacks BBQ?”
  97. “I can guarantee you he went there”
  98. >“How can you know?”
  99. >He looks at you confused
  100. >You flash him a grin
  101. “His breath smelled like bbq ribs. Plus thats closest to the place, but not a chain. He comes off as the kind of guy who prefers not to go to chain restaurants”
  102. >“DO you even know what a chain is?” Anon asks turning to you
  103. >You nod
  104. “We had plenty of them in equestria”
  105. >“Well, it looks like its just down the road. I’ll park and we can walk it”
  106. >Cadence lays her head back groaning softly “FINALLY I’m STAAAAAAAARVING”
  107. >You roll your eyes and settle into the bed of the truck to wait till Anon parks
  108. >He ends up driving out behind a school and parking in a dirt lot he finds
  109. >The three of you hop out and start walking
  110. >Its around 5pm by now, so that makes a good time for dinner
  111. >The place itself is rather small, but you immediately see the pony
  112. >From the angle you see him at, he is an orange pony, with a white stripe on his face
  113. >He wears a female waiters outfit which firmly accentuates his curves
  114. >Stallions should not have curves
  115. >He also wears a pair of small, cute glasses
  116. >He seems a bit on the jumpy side, and moves slow
  117. >Anon seems to be thinking, more so than you
  118. >he even pulls out his magic plastic square that allows bartering and calls a number on it
  119. >All hail the plastic square
  120. >“Okay Ling”
  121. >Anon looks down at you
  122. >You turn to him
  123. >“Lets go get something to eat and I’ll try to tlak to the manager”
  124. “Aren’t we going to try some daring escape?”
  125. >Anon goes silent then shakes his head
  126. >“No, not everything has to be an action movie”
  127. “awwww”
  128. >Before you get there you make sure you’re in your disguise of Fleur de Lis
  129. >The three of you head for the restaurant and take your seats
  130. >Luckily the orange pony with the white stripe is your server
  131. >His name tag says “Tangerine”
  132. >That’s… really girly and really dumb
  133. >You just ignore it for now and order
  134. >Ribs and salads for the three of you
  135. >He’s completely silent the whole time and keeps his head down, only asking what he can get you
  136. >You feel bad for him, but he doesn’t seem all that bad off, just a bit skinny
  137. >This is your first time trying ribs, but your body has had too much meat, so you decide on a salad and testing Anons ribs
  138. >When you take a bite of the ribs you realize something
  139. >It was horrible, horrible mistake
  140. >The pony serving you goes to pour you a glass of water and you quickly grab it from him
  141. “AAA!”
  142. >“Ling what’s wrong?”
  143. >You grab the whole jug of water and proceed to pour it down your throat
  144. >The orange pony stares
  145. >Cadence stares
  146. >The restaurant stares
  147. >Anon face palms
  148. >“Ling..”
  149. >You fan your tongue with your hoof, tears streaming down your face as you try to cool the fires of hell
  150. >It isn’t working
  151. >You grab the pony by the collar
  152. “MILK MILK NOW”
  153. >You nods and hurries, shuffling off to the inside of the place
  154. >Anon looks at you concerned
  155. >You start crying
  156. “What have you done to me”
  157. >Anon rubs your head
  158. >You hiss at him
  159. >The hissing only burns your tongue more
  160. >“Ling. Those are hot ribs”
  161. >FUCK
  162. >You keep fanning yourself, promptly drinking Anons drink and Cadences, before your server finally returns with a small thing of a childrens meals milk
  163. >You rip the plastic cap off and gulp it down
  164. >Many humans are staring
  165. >You couldn’t care less right now, you’re dieing
  166. >No pony should ever consume such horrible things
  167. >It takes a few minutes but the fire finally goes away
  168. >Leaving the three of you to eat in relative peace
  169. >You agree never to have these rub things again
  170. >While the three of you eat however you do bring up something important
  171. “Anon, I need something from you”
  172. >“No”
  173. “…I need herbs”
  174. >Anon looks down at you
  175. >“What for?”
  176. “Ca- Sea Breezes leg isn’t getting better at a fast enough rate. I’m having to change her bandages every day”
  177. >Cadnece looks up at you, then back to her leg “Its true”
  178. >“Okay” Anon nods “What do you need them for”
  179. “Well, I told you why medics are sought after”
  180. >He gets a look of thinking
  181. >Then a look of realization
  182. >“Oh… Oh okay, sure, what do you need”
  183. >You list off a couple basic plants
  184. >Aloe, sunflower oil, clove, yarrow, and Geranium
  185. >Anon looks at you like you just told him to find a needle in a haystack
  186. “Just.. Bring me to a plant store”
  187. >He nods slowly and returns to eating
  188. >When Anon finishes, the pony returns, looking even more tired than before
  189. >Poor guy can’t keep up being the only waiter outside
  190. >“Anything else I can get you?” he asks nervously, his voice slightly shakey
  191. >Anon looks over “Yeah can you get your owner?”
  192. >He stiffens up “O..owner? Oh sir what ever I can help you with please I’m sure I can handle it!”
  193. >Anon shakes his head and waves dismissively at him “I’d really like to se your owner”
  194. >He gulps but nods slowly, hanging his head down and walking to the back
  195. >When he returns, a skinny, but pissed off looking back is dragging him by the lacy girly collar “What did he do this time?” He practically snarls
  196. >You don’t like the feelings you get from this guy
  197. >Anon grabs his wallet and turns to him
  198. >“I want him”
  199. >Cadence spits out her drink in surprise and starts coughing
  200. >You expected as much so you go calm her
  201. >Anon spins in his chair and grins
  202. >The owner glares and takes a seat, making the pony get back to work\
  203. >“You want him”
  204. >“I want him”
  205. >“how do I know you aren’t just a scammer. This isn’t the first bullshit offer I’ve had.”
  206. >Anon smirks  “Well how much did you pay for him”
  207. >The man thinks for a moment before writing a number on a napkin
  208. >Anon takes it
  209. >He visibly cringes, but then nods
  210. >“I’ll give you a fair price”
  211. >The man leans back “How much ”
  212. >“10 grand”
  213. >He grunts and shakes his head “I paid more than that”
  214. >“Yeah and you havnt been feeding him. I’m going to have to work his ass off to get him back to health”
  215. >Now its your turn to spit take in shock
  216. >Covering Anons back in wet, cold water
  217. >Anon spins around grabbing you by the horn
  218. “ahh! S..sorry!”
  219. >He gives you a glare and shakes your head
  220. >“Be more careful pony”
  221. >He doesn’t talk to you like that
  222. >It makes you uncomfortable and a bit sad, even though his emotions are telling a different story
  223. >It isn’t the first time, but it still stings
  224. >You sink down into Cadence and go quiet
  225. >Anon uses a napkin to pat himself dry and looks to the other human
  226. >After some more talking between the two the owner goes to get some paperwork
  227. >Anon turns to you and pats your head, whispering “sorry, I didn’t hurt you did I?”
  228. >You look down and shake your head
  229. “No”
  230. >Anon turns back to wait for the man
  231. >When he does return he has some paperwork and has someone with him
  232. >The woman is tall, skinny, and nerdy looking as hell
  233. >Even by your standards, and you’ve met Twilight sparkle
  234. >He explains that it’s a notary for the paperwork and check
  235. >Seems this man must deal in ponies a lot
  236. >Anon gets to work, signing the papers and doing all that boring stuff
  237. >Before long the stallion is stripped of his girly servers outfit
  238. >Oh god he even had panties on under the skirt
  239. >And is given to Anon
  240. >Anon stands and grabs your and Cadences leash
  241. >“Come on”
  242. >he tugs and the three of you are on your way, pony in tow
  243. >That went… much quicker than expected
  244. >When you’re out of site, you turn to the stallion
  245. “Whats your name”
  246. >He mumbles and looks down
  247. >you sigh
  248. >great
  249. “Its okay, Anon is nice. “
  250. >He looks up to you, then Anon hopefully
  251. >Then look sat Cadence
  252. >He does a double take, but then goes back to looking at the ground
  253. >“I..I’m uh.. S..sunburst”
  254. >You look to Cadence, as she’s the one who deals in pony affairs
  255. >She shrugs
  256. >Great, no one knows him, that’s not helping anything
  257. “Well, Uh, Sunburst. I’m Ling, this is Sea Breeze”
  258. >You look around
  259. >Still too many humans around to say her name out loud
  260. “Its nice to meet you”
  261. >Cadence offers a hoof shake
  262. >He doesn’t seem to notice and keeps walking
  263. >You scratch your head then sigh unsure what to say exactly in this situation
  264. >Things are so much easier when you can read each others thoughts
  265. >Cadence switches places with you and moves other to him, wrapping a hoof around him with a smile
  266. >“You’re safe here. You don’t have to keep your head down”
  267. >He smiles some, but doesn’t look up
  268. >Good enough for now
  269. >While you return to the truck, you sneak a peek at Anons wrist watch
  270. >7:30pm
  271. >You really haven’t been gone that long, but its been enough time that maybe Shell has awoken
  272. >You focus on the hive and go into the hive mind to chat
  273. “Um… is anyone there?”
  274. >>“yes Ling? Its midnight here, most of us are asleep”
  275. >Shit
  276. >>“What do you need?”
  277. “Hows shell doing?”
  278. >>“She’s awake, but in pain. The nerves on her tail are completely gone, her hoof however..”
  279. >You wince, that can’t be good
  280. >>“I cut her off from the hive mind for now so she wouldn’t be bothered”
  281. “Oh, uh, how? I thought only you could do that”
  282. >There is a mental sigh
  283. >>“Its not that hard, the hive is completely magic based. I thought you knew this”
  284. >…right
  285. “Will she be able to reconnect any time soon”
  286. >>“She will tomorrow, I have a medic watching her tonight. She’ll be fine, but.. I don’t know what we can do for her hoof. I’ll have some of our scientists work on an artificial hoof.. But.. She’ll need a new job rather than soldier. Assuming we can figure out a way to make her not be in pain”
  287. >You can understand that
  288. >She would probably make a good nurse, maybe
  289. “Thanks mom. “
  290. >>“Not at all my dear. Now I’m going to sleep”
  291. >Everything goes silent
  292. >You focus back on walking, and listening in on Cadence and Sunburst
  293. >it’s a very one sided conversation, with Sunburst mostly just nodding and sighing some
  294. >You can’t help but feel for the poor guy, he wants to speak up, maybe even go back to however he was before
  295. >But, alas, he is stuck to mumbles and quiet whimpers for now
  296. >You all reach the RV, and you can tell he looks surprised
  297. >Anon rubs his head and smiles, opening the door and letting the three of you up the stairs firsts
  298. >That bastard got your head rubs
  299. >You hate him
  300. >Sitting in the RV, Anon is in his bed
  301. >Cadence is sleeping  under you in her bunk
  302. >And you
  303. >Well you’re chillen in your bunk above her, but decided not to loose your form for fear of scaring Sunburst
  304. >You’re still a bit salty about loosing your double decker bed to Cadence
  305. >But that’s okay, because you’re working on making this top bunk even better than hers
  306. >However all is not well in you’re little RV
  307. >Cadence may be sleeping well and snoring
  308. >But you and Anon are exchanging occasional glances at each other
  309. >Laying in the floor, with blankets as a bed and covering, Sunburst is upset
  310. >Nopony can hide their emotions from a changeling
  311. >NO
  312. >PONY
  313. >All you can taste is confusion, sadness, and general discontent from him as he rolls around in his little makeshift bed
  314. >Anon probably can’t feel it, but he can hear it
  315. >Finally he sits up and looks at Sunburst
  316. >Who promptly whimpers and sinks into the covered
  317. >You shoot a glare at Anon
  318. >He sighs and gets up
  319. >He’s in his underwear
  320. >Wew lad
  321. >Did it just get hotter in here
  322. >You hop down from the bunk with a soft thump and go over to Sunburst
  323. >He flinches away from both you and Anon, but Anon picks him up slowly
  324. >The two of you go outside the RV so as to not wake Cadence and anon sits on the steps once he closes the door
  325. >You sit beside Sunburst who is shivering and clearly afraid
  326. >You look to Anon, who shrugs
  327. >Carefully you wrap your foreleg around Sunburst
  328. “Hey, Its okay, you’re safe with us ya know”
  329. >He doesn’t respond
  330. >Anon leans down to his height
  331. >“She’s telling the trust. My names Anon”
  332. >He puts out his hand
  333. >Sunburst stares at it for a moment before gulping and slowly shaking
  334. >Anon smiles
  335. >“Whats your name. I know its not Tangerine”
  336. >He gulps before speaking up in a weak manner “U..Uh Sun burst s-sir”
  337. >You hug him to your side softly
  338. “See? That wasn’t so bad. Sunburst is a nice name afterall”
  339. >Anon nods in agreement
  340. >“Well, Sunburst, I’m glad I found you, because I have some really good news”
  341. >You can taste a slight bit of hope
  342. >Its quickly pushed down
  343. >You motion Anon to continue
  344. >“That pony, inside, Sea Breeze. That’s princess Cadence”
  345. >His demeanor shifts and his eyes go wide
  346. >Partly in horror, thinking he’s now owned by someone who can control a princess
  347. >But also in amazement, and hope, due to the gentle coaxing and demeanor
  348. >it’s a start
  349. >You gently pat his back and smile
  350. “He saved her. She’s helping us get back home”
  351. >“H..home?” He looks at you hopefully
  352. >You nod
  353. “We figured out how to get ponies home. We found a portal Sunburst”
  354. >He takes a deep breath
  355. >“Impossible”
  356. >You sigh, this isn’t as easy as you had hoped
  357. >Anon stands up heading inside
  358. >You look curiously to see what he’s doing
  359. >Annoyingly enough you can’t figure out his emotions
  360. >Till he comes back with a jar of cherries in some kind of liquid
  361. >Anon gets a glass and smiles leaning down to Sunburst
  362. >“Alright buddy. Tell ya what. We’ll talk about this in the morning, till then, how about you try to sleep? I got some stuff here to help”
  363. >He looks at it curiously, then back up to Anon, then you
  364. >You smile and motion him forward while anon pours the glass
  365. >Sunburst shakes his head “N..no Thank you. Human medicine isn’t good”
  366. >You walk over taking some of the cherries out and smiling at Sunburst as you eat them
  367. >Yep
  368. >That’s moonshine
  369. >Yummy, cherry
  370. >You take the half full jar and drink some of it, showing Sunburst its okay
  371. >He looks at you suspiciously, then to Anon before slowly taking the glass in his hooves
  372. “You gotta drink it fast”
  373. >He nods and tilts the cup, chugging it down fast
  374. >You drink some more and give it back to Anon, who follows up with his own gulp and a few cherries
  375. >Sunburst drinks the whole thing in a matter of seconds
  376. >…holy shit
  377. >Anon gives him a cherry, which he promptly eats
  378. >You walk over giving him a nice hug
  379. >Anon returns inside to lay down
  380. >Unsurprisingly, with that much alcohol in ones system, it doesn’t talke long before he is yawning
  381. >You carefully walk him back inside the RV and lay him down
  382. >Sunburst grabs you and rolls onto his back
  383. >He looks up at you giggling some
  384. >“thanks pretty pony”
  385. >And proceeds to pass out
  386. >wat
  387.  
  388. >When morning eventually rolls around, sunburst is groaning and laying on his back
  389. >Anon is making eggs and bacon
  390. >Cadence is being a fucking bitch
  391. >I mean sleeping
  392. >And you
  393. >You’re outside on the roof in the morning air
  394. >Comfiest Ling
  395. >After a bit of rest Anon calls your name and you look down into the window
  396. >Anon holds out a bacon strip through the window
  397. >NOM
  398. >The crispy goodness is devoured within a few bites
  399. “So whats the plan Anon!”
  400. >You grin and hop down from the roof
  401. >Mid air you transform and stick the landing as a changeling, using your wings to ease your hit
  402. >Anon holds the window open for you to climb through
  403. >“Well I was thinking to head over to the nursery for you”
  404. >You nod and walk over to sunburst, who groans and looks at you
  405. >Upon seeing you he gasps and cringes back, digging into his covers
  406. >Oh shit you forgot
  407. >he doesn’t know who you are REALLY
  408. “WHoa, whoa its me, Ling”
  409. >Sunburst looks at you, then at Anon, who nods
  410. >He slowly comes out of the covers and looks you over
  411. >You see a spark in his eyes
  412. >If he was a scholarly pony back in the day, then its coming back, because he starts examining you and looking through your leg holes
  413. >“W..wow” He mumbles to himself “you’re REALLY a changeling..that’s..so neat”
  414. >You stand proudly and puff your chest out
  415. >He smiles some and sits up
  416. >Anon looks to you
  417. >“wanna go check out that plant nursery now?”
  418. >You nod and look around for  your list
  419. >Luckily you managed to write it out
  420. >Passing the note to Anon he stuffs it in his pocket
  421. >“lets go. Cadence, Sunburst, you two wanna come?”
  422. >They look to each other, then Sunburst nods some
  423. >Cadence shakes her head, covering it with her pillow
  424. >Anon gets cleaned up and ready, while you and Sunburst also ready yourselves and head outside
  425. >Anon hops in the truck, letting you unhook it from the RV, and the two of you set off a couple miles down the road
  426. “So, I need all the plants on the list, and maybe some jars, if I’m to make the salve”
  427. >‘What is it?”
  428. “Well, I guess its sort of like honey. I guess, I use the whole plant and then separate what I don’t need out, what I do need, I keep and it all gets worked into a salve”
  429. >Sunburst looks over “How?”
  430. “….You’ll see”
  431. >Anon cringes thinking about how honey is made, and you doing that
  432. >Sunburst is completely ignorant to it
  433. >Anon looks up some nurseries on his phone, pointing out a few, but you just decide to go to the closest one you see
  434. >Luckily its only a few miles to the biggest of the close ones, and Anon is nice enough to drive you to it
  435. >When you arrive, you find It open but barely staffed, just one bored person at a register
  436. >the plants not in the self contained green houses clearly havnt been watered yet
  437. >This angers you
  438. >But best to ignore it, as fighting a human would end up bad in this situation
  439. >Anon looks at the list and heads off
  440. >“Okay Ling, you and sunburst gather stuff, and I’ll do the same”
  441. >You nod and walk with Sunburst, who stares at all the plants, examining each one as you pass it
  442. >It slows you down a lot, but you don’t say anything
  443. >Sunburst picks up a small decorative berry plant with some flowers
  444. >“Its pretty” he says looking it over “I’ve never seen anything like this before”
  445. >You look at it and pluck a flower, popping it into your mouth
  446. >Bitter
  447. >You also taste nothing of value in it
  448. >So you spit it out and gag some
  449. >Sunburst looks at you
  450. “What?”
  451. >“N..nothing”
  452. >You shrug and start tasting flowers, making sure the person at the counter isn’t watching
  453. >Thank you humans for distractive cellphones
  454. >Anon comes over pushing a cart with some bushes on it
  455. >“Alright Ling, I got the Clove tree, but its not ready to harvest since its only a few feet tall, Yarrow bush, and I found a small geranium plant”
  456. >You look it over
  457. “The Geranium is too small, is there a second?”
  458. >“Well yeah but it’s a bit expensive..”
  459. >You eye anon and pour your lip whimpering as cute as you can
  460. >Anon sighs and goes to get another
  461. >You examine the clove
  462. >The leaves and stems are useful, but only slightly, the actual bud is what you need the most
  463. >You take the plant and go back to Anon
  464. “Instead lets just pick up some dried clove and clove oil”
  465. >He groans but puts the plant back, putting a second geranium plant on your back
  466. >You look around and realize something
  467. >Theres no aloe
  468. >While Anon is distracted you march up to the man at the counter inside the little shack
  469. “EXCUSE ME”
  470. >You huff
  471. >He looks down at you then drops his phone, scooting back “WHAT THE FUCK”
  472. “EXCUSE ME SIR BUT WHAT KIND OF NURSERY DOESN’T SELL ALOE”
  473. >“WHoa whoa little big thing”
  474. >You puff up your cheeks glaring
  475. “I AM NOT  A BUG”
  476. >“Pony thing. We just don’t have any okay”
  477. >You glare
  478. >He shakes some, slowly reaching for his phone
  479. >You stamp your hoof
  480. “I DEMAND AN EXPLAINATI-”
  481. >You’re cut off as your neck is yanked
  482. >You gag and flail your hooves being lifted into the air
  483. >Anon is behind you, sunburst in tow
  484. >“Hehe, sorry about that, she’s a bit of trouble”
  485. >The man gulps and nods slowly
  486. >Anon pushes the cart forward
  487. >“I’ll just uh, take these and be on my way. Is there a naturalist store around here?”
  488. >The man nods slowly, ringing up the stuff shakily “Yeah, uh, four miles up the road, near the school”
  489. >You flail and gag as Anon drags you to the truck
  490. >‘thank you!”
  491. >He waves and pays for the plants as he walks off
  492. >Sunburst quietly tugging the cart as he follows
  493. >Anon doesn’t say a word as he loads up the plants
  494. >When he arrives at the natural store he walks in, and comes back out with the stuff you needed, Sunflower oil, clove leaf oil, dry cloves, and a fresh, if not a bit small, aloe plant
  495. >Along the way he looks over to you “You know what I’m mad”
  496. >You look down and shuffle your hooves
  497. “yeah..”
  498. >“Then you know why I’m not talking”
  499. >You nod
  500. >he nods to you and turns his attention to the road
  501. >You sigh quietly and lean on the dash board
  502. >His next stop is a dollar store for the mason jars
  503. >When all is said and done the three of you reach the RV again
  504. >Inside Cadence is still sleeping
  505. >You stay outside to get to work on your plants
  506. >You notice the price tags
  507. >the geranium plants together were $12, the Aloe was $10, and the Yarrow was $20
  508. >You fish throught he bag with the oils and dried cloves in it and find a receipt
  509. >he spent $30 on all those
  510. >He isn’t going to be happy about what you do next
  511. >You open the clove oil and chug it down
  512. >It makes your mouth numb and tastes good, so that will make the rest of this easy
  513. >Next you eat all the dried cloves and lick the container, putting it to the side with the empty oil bottle, then drink some sunflower oil
  514. >Eyeing the yarrow next you take bites of the flowers, leaves and stems
  515. >it’s a larger plant, but that’s good, you chew each bit up as much as you can before swallowing
  516. >by the time you finish eating everything but the harder sections and roots you burp
  517. >You feel a bit bloated
  518. >Alas, you must finish
  519. >The geranium is next and it isn’t as hard since it’s a much smaller plant
  520. >by the time you finish those you’re out of sunflower oil
  521. >The aloe is last
  522. >You take a bite
  523. >Its nice and juicy. Perfect!
  524. >By the time you’re done you roll onto your back
  525. >The green bands around your stomach area are, to say the least, stretched
  526. >You’re all bloated
  527. “ughhhhh”
  528. >You lay in the bed of the truck to relax and look at the plants
  529. >they’re definitely dead.
  530. >Anon isn’t going to be happy but now you should have enough medicine to last
  531. >Counting up the jars reveals you may have miscounted
  532. >Theres going to be a ton from this
  533. >>“Ling, are you okay?”
  534. >You groan out and respond to Chrysalis, though a tad slow
  535. “I’m great”
  536. >>“….You ate way too much”
  537. “I know”
  538. >>“You going to be sick?”
  539. “No, it all went into the other stomach”
  540. >>“Good. At least you know what you’re doing”
  541. “…I forgot how long it takes to make the salve”
  542. >Chrysalis groans
  543. >>“One hour”
  544. “Right, right. I knew that”
  545. >You burp
  546. >ugh
  547. >Anon comes out to check on you a while later
  548. >He stares at the plant massacre before him
  549. >“Ling. What have you done.”
  550. >He looks down at the bloated, fat, changeling in front of him
  551. >“Nope. Not dealing with this. Nope”
  552. >He turns 360 degrees and walks away
  553. >you laugh to yourself
  554. >He hasn’t even seen how you have to get it out
  555. >When the hour is up you stand up and take the first jar
  556. >You call for Anon
  557. >He pokes his head out the door
  558. >“WHAT”
  559. “I NEED A FUNNEL”
  560. >Seconds later Anon throws one at you
  561. >It lands on your horn
  562. >Bastard
  563. >Putting it in the jar you position yourself
  564. >Ass up head down
  565. >A familiar flexing in your second stomach, now less bloated, makes you gag
  566. >Your throat flexes and you gag again
  567. >You hold your head up
  568. “URK… URK.. BLLLEGH”
  569. >You gag more and the warm, somewhat thick liquid, starts to flow
  570. >Its not a huge flow
  571. >but its enough to start filling the jar consistently
  572. >You close your mouth once one jar is filled and move to the next
  573. >And do it all again
  574. >Gagging noises intensifies
  575. >three jars later you happen to look up
  576. >You’re about half way through by now
  577. >Anon, Cadence, and Sunburst are all in the window, staring and watching you from a distance
  578. >Looks of horror, amazement, and disgust adorn their faces
  579. >All is going well, clearly
  580. >You arch your back and burp
  581. >There is a splatter that gets all over Anons truck
  582. >He gags and grabs his mouth running outside
  583. >Within several minutes the deed is done
  584. >You swallow, any backwash going into your actual stomach
  585. >Tasty
  586. >You carry the jars inside and smile up at Cadence
  587. “here you go! Healing honey for your leg! Its home made!”
  588. >She stares down at it
  589. >The runs outside to join Anon
  590. >Sunburst just stares in awe
  591. >All is well
  592. >As the great medic that you are, you are all too happy to cap the various jars and put them in cool dark places
  593. >Mostly under your bed
  594. >You take one jar and walk over to Cadence, who is brushing her teeth with Anon
  595. “Alright we’re ready to put it on your wound”
  596. >You hold up the jar
  597. >"THAT?"
  598. "MHM!"
  599. >You nod, proud as punch.
  600. >It's always good, doing what you were meant to do.
  601. >"You want to put THAT on my leg?"
  602. "Yep!"
  603. >"The stuff you just vomited out into a JAR?"
  604. "I used a funnel!"
  605. >>"I don't think that's what she has a problem with."
  606. "But... I used a funnel..."
  607. >"That's... ahem... not the issue..."
  608. >"Candace, stop being polite," Anon growls. "Ling, you're gross. Stop being gross."
  609. "I'm... gross...?"
  610. >>"No, Ling, they just don't understand. It's a perfectly natural bodily function."
  611. "I'm not gross!"
  612. >"You... just look! You made a mess of my truck!"
  613. "I'm not gross! I used a funnel!"
  614. >There is a collective sigh from the residents of the RV
  615. >You just don’t understand
  616. >You bet the humans did this
  617. >Damn social stigmas
  618. >Walking over to the med kit, you get out the gauze for today and bring it over to Cadence
  619. >She cringes, but you aint having that shit
  620. >You snort hard
  621. >And spit
  622. >A goopy green mess splatters on Cadences leg
  623. >She tugs at it with a scream
  624. >Must be flashbacks
  625. >Anon face palms and walks out, unable to handle your magnificence
  626. >You, however, have work to do, and get to it
  627. >The first thing you do is remove the old bandages
  628. >And then proceed to carefully work the weird honey goop into the wound, both around it in the inflamed area, and into and under the stitches a little
  629. >It is easy and takes little work, especially with your magic and even though she is cringing like a little bitch, she is held in place pretty firm
  630. “So where to next Anon?”
  631. >Turning back Anon is watching as you liberally apply the honey, then rebandage Cadences thigh
  632. >“Well, I was thinking of heading out towards maybe Colorado or Nevada, I love BLM land and the mountains”
  633. “….where”
  634. >“Uh, just trust me on this”
  635. “Okaaaay, so what for today”
  636. >“WE DRIVE”
  637. >Anon puts a toothpick in his mouth
  638. >And puts on a jacket
  639. >Its like, 80 outside, for what purpose
  640. >You ignore it and release Cadence from the goopy trap, sweeping the rest out the door
  641. >Sunburst seems deeply concerned as he examines the stuff laying on the ground
  642. >You let him and Cadence rest in the RV while you help Anon hook it back up, then hop in the cab with him
  643. “So, just west”
  644. >“Just west”
  645. >You grab his compass and the map looking it over
  646. >Closing your eyes you put your horn on a random spot of the map
  647. >It lands in some place near the south eastern section of Utah, leaving a small hole in the ground
  648. >“There it is”
  649. >Anon pokes the pin hole in the map and starts the truck
  650. >Not before you hear a wrapper and munching
  651. >….Anon is eating your york patty stash
  652. >You smack him in the back of the head and grunt angrily
  653. >He gives you a shit eating grin, chocolate in his teeth
  654. “You’re a bastard”
  655. >“I know, but fuck you I’m the master”
  656. “Watch it human”
  657. >“I’ll watch your butt”
  658. >You look away blushing
  659. >B..bastard
  660. >After the use of a highlighter and some scotch tape the route is corrected
  661. >Anon used his phone to double check the map
  662. >You THOUGHT you landed in some bumfuck nowhere town in Utah called Mesa, but after repairing the map you find that actually it’s a random spot off a small road
  663. >Welp, time to camp
  664. >Its also a 20 hour drive, so that means lots of refuels and lots of stops to rest
  665. >But anon says he’s going to try to go straight through
  666. >You have doubts
  667. >Especially since theirs ponies and changelings to be picked up
  668. >Sunburst and Cadence in the RV, you in the Cab alone with Anon
  669. >You havnt done it in a while, however with a goal in mind, and Anon paying attention to the road
  670. >Its more boring than you expected
  671. >It doesn’t take long for you to pass out in the passenger seat, head leaning out the window
  672. >dat warm afternoon air
  673. >You feel a hand on your head just as your eyes get heavy
  674. >It doesn’t help the situation at all
  675. >Is he petting you?
  676. >…
  677. >You yawn and soon enough can’t hold your head up, falling to sleep
  678. >You loose track of time, but when you wake up, you see a rather odd sign
  679. “North.. Canadian river? Anon did you drive all the way to Canada? Isn’t that north?”
  680. >“No I shouldn’t have, we’re heading west”
  681. >He points to the map
  682. >“We passed a sign saying we’re nearing Oklahoma city”
  683. “where?”
  684. >He bites his lip
  685. >“Uh, just one of the main cities in the US. Its not easy to explain where we are to someone who doesn’t know anything about the US. We’re near that dot there”
  686. >He points in the middle of a rectangular shape with a tail, and low and behold, there is Oklahoma city right there
  687. >Oh
  688. >You’re almost half way there
  689. >Looking out the window confirms your suspicions but also makes you very uncomfortable
  690. >The land is so
  691. >Flat
  692. >Like your queens butt
  693. >>“LING I WILL END YOU”
  694. >There is a piercing poking at your head, like a hot knife
  695. >You disserved that
  696. >Worth it
  697. “Why’d you wake me up here though? I mean…theres nothing here”
  698. >“I didn’t wake you”
  699. >Anon gives you a glare
  700. >You smile at him
  701. >looking to your right you see a Casino
  702. >holy shit this place has nothing
  703. “We need to leave”
  704. >“Why?”
  705. “Because I can’t think of a single thing to do here”
  706. >Anon deadpans as he turns to face you
  707. >You have an expression showing how few fucks you give
  708. >“Theres cheese and beef”
  709. “…That’s nice Anon”
  710. >You roll your eyes and return to the distance
  711. >Its pretty
  712. >Ish
  713. >But you like the mountains back east so much more
  714. >Though the map says theirs mountains out west, so maybe you’ll find something cool out that way
  715. >After even MORE time driving you look and see a slide passing by
  716. >There is a ping in your brain as Chrysalis gathers your attention
  717. “Yes mother?”
  718. >Anon gives you a curious glance
  719. >You shrug
  720. >>“Ling, Is that the uh.. White Water place?”
  721. “Yes, it is. I saw a sign a few miles back”
  722. >>“Perfect, You have another changeling to find”
  723. >You gasp out
  724. “ANOTHER?”
  725. >Anon gasps in surprise and grabs the wheel hard
  726. >You feel the truck and trailer jerk
  727. “Where?”
  728. >>“Near by. She’s working at the days in as a maid”
  729. “Anon we need to stop”
  730. >Anon looks over at you, you’re getting close to the days in, as you can see the sign
  731. >“Wheres that?”
  732. “At the inn over there”
  733. >You point as the passing sign
  734. >Anon nods to you and flashes his blinker, cutting across a lane and going off the ramp as soon as he can
  735. >You grip the dash for dear life
  736. >You swear you hear a scream from the trailer
  737. “How do you know that’s her location my queen?”
  738. >>“She hasn’t been taking her suppressants. It makes it easier for her to make the beds. Shouldn’t be too hard to pick her up and run without anyone noticing. “
  739. “Hopefully”
  740. >Anon pulls into the Inn and looks over to you
  741. >You chuckle
  742. “Maybe we should stop by, its been a while since we had a proper bath”
  743. >“Agreed”
  744. >Anon smiles back, grabbing you under his arm
  745. >Oh god
  746. >He didn’t put on deodorant
  747. >This is really turning you on
  748. >>“Ling stop, you’re on a mission”
  749. >HE SMELLS SO MANLY
  750. >Anon releases you, thankfully, and goes inside to check in
  751. >While you on the other hoof, head to the trailer to check on everyone
  752. >The first thing you see upon opening the door however is a broken glass
  753. >And blood
  754. >Shit
  755. >Cadences runs out, almost knocking you over, grabbing her head
  756. >Theres blood on her hooves
  757. >You hurry over, but Sunburst follows behind
  758. >He has blood flowing from his forehead
  759. >What in the name of Chrysalis did you just miss
  760. >Sunburst runs over
  761. >“LING I NEED HONEY”
  762. “u wot mate”
  763. >“I SMACKED MY HEAD ON THE CABINET WHEN WE TURNED ON I BROKE THE GLASS AND THERES BLOOD I’M SORRY”
  764. >…You shake your head and go inside to investigate
  765. >other than the bloody hoof prints and the shattered glass there isn’t much to see
  766. >You get a jar of the honey and pass it to sunburst, who promptly, and without cleaning the wound, smears it into his head
  767. >It stops the bleeding nearly instantly
  768. >but you cringe at the improper medical care
  769. >Returning the jar to its rightful place you let cadence clean her hooves and you pick up the glass
  770. >Sunburst sits in the bed of the truck to keep from making himself bleed any further
  771. >He should relaly clean up his own shit
  772. >Or next time use a funnel to keep his blood in one place
  773. >Anon returns and waves a keycard
  774. >“Alright, we’re in. What do you want to do?”
  775. “I guess in the morning when the maids come around, we look for my sister?”
  776. >Anon locks the truck and gives you the second keycard
  777. >“That’ll work.”
  778. >You carry the card, as well as your own little bag of cloths and cadences hair coloring with you to your room
  779. >Anon follows with his own change of cloths
  780. >When you get to the room each of you take turns in the shower, Anon first, you second, Cadence, then sunburst
  781. >When Anon steps out
  782. >You hate to admit it, but he’s looking good
  783. >Makes you wanna jum-
  784. >>“LING”
  785. >You’re not sorry at all
  786. >You get out of the shower next, and put on yoru own shirt and panties
  787. >Anon seems to, at first, cringe at you wearing the panties
  788. >But you don’t care you owned them before, this shits comfy as fuck
  789. >Cadences return from the shower just shows you desperately need to reapply her hair coloring
  790. >Sunburst
  791. >Eh whatever
  792. >He’s kinda cute though
  793. >You lay in bed, with Anon
  794. >Cadence and sunburst get the other bed
  795. >Anon, however, decides to raid the mini bar before he lays down
  796. >There isn’t anything in there impressive, cheap beer and snacks
  797. >But its nice to have, as you eagerly eat away at a bag of cheetos
  798. >Human snacks are pretty good
  799. >Love wise, you haven’t eaten a lot, and are mostly sustained by the food
  800. >However, it is obvious that in this place
  801. >Love Is bound to be freely floating around
  802. >You just need to wait for nightfall
  803. >The four of you set up in the hotel and all get washed pretty easily, luckily without incident
  804. >Your ear hole seems permanent, and replacing your bandage shows it to have closed out
  805. >might as well leave it uncovered
  806. >Cadences wound is healing a lot faster now and has noticeably gotten better
  807. >When you all get to bed
  808. >Well, you have trouble sleeping
  809. >As does sunburst
  810. >You roll over in the bed, seeing Sunburst clenching the pillow
  811. “You okay?”
  812. >He turns to you and sighs some looking away
  813. >You grunt and lean forward
  814. “Sunburst, I know you have trouble sleeping”
  815. >He nods softly
  816. >You sigh and get up out of the bed, going over beside him and patting his head
  817. >He flinches at first but then smiles
  818. >The two of you relax beside each other, watching the Tv with no sound
  819. >Humans really like violence
  820. >And zombies
  821. >Its rather disturbing really
  822. >Human news isn’t much better
  823. >I mean, who ELECTS presidents. A ruler matriarch in charge of the sun or a queen of all beings makes much more sense
  824. >Humans are silly
  825. >Eventually however, you find yourself yawning a stand up
  826. >You feel a familiar feeling in your loins
  827. >Well, not yours
  828. >it’s a taste of love
  829. >You look back
  830. “SUnburst”
  831. >The pony jerks his head up
  832. >“Huh?!”
  833. >You point at him
  834. “Whats that I taste?”
  835. >“What do you mean?”
  836. “Lust. “
  837. >Sunbursts eyes go wide then he blushes brightly
  838. >“Uh must be some of the other people here!”
  839. >You roll your eyes
  840. “Sunburst plz. I can tell the source, and most all the sources of love and lust have passed out.”
  841. >He audibly gulps and crawls back into the bed with Cadence
  842. >You walk over and poke his side
  843. “It isn’t me. Who is it”
  844. >“No one, lets just go to bed”
  845. >You smirk as you playfully jab his side  one more time
  846. >Turning around however shows what sunburst was acting up about
  847. >Anon is laying, mostly covered, with his chest exposed
  848. >And a large tent erect
  849. >….large is an over statement . Your toy is way  bigger
  850. “No way”
  851. >You turn to Sunburst and grin
  852. >He looks away
  853. “you’re into that?”
  854. >“M..maybe”
  855. “You totally are”
  856. >You and sunburst share a long, understanding stare
  857. >He gulps
  858. >“Don’t tell him”
  859. “Oh I won’t”
  860. >You smirk internally
  861. >Chrysalis seems to have been listening, as she has to put in her two cents
  862. >>“Ling”
  863. “Yes my queen?”
  864. >>“I’m curious about something.. You think you can convince Sunburst to help out?”
  865. “Maybe, hey sunburst”
  866. >The orange stallion clops his hooves together looking down
  867. >“Yes Ling?”
  868. “Queen Chrysalis wants to know something”
  869. >“T..the QUEEN?”
  870. >Sunburst stares at you in shock
  871. >You give him a shit eating grin
  872. >>“I’m curious if human erections work the same as a stallion”
  873. “That’s disgusting”
  874. >>“Its for science”
  875. >You repeat her words to Sunburst
  876. >He gulps and looks at Anon
  877. >…And then stands up and walks over to him
  878. >No way
  879. >Is he really goin-
  880. >Sunburst gets over Anons sleeping body
  881. >He’s a hungry boy
  882. >You stare in shock
  883. >You can practically hear Chrysalis’ jaw hitting the floor
  884. >That was shockingly easy
  885. >Conveniently and disturbingly slow
  886.  “Sunburst I wasn’t really going to..”
  887. >Slurping intensifies
  888. >You nope right off to the bathroom
  889. >>“Hold on Ling I wanna see if he swall-
  890. “Nope, I’m done here. I’m going to the toilet. Nope nope”
  891. >>"He's a faggot, Ling."
  892. “OKAY MOM GOODNIGHT”
  893. >>“Goodnight Ling”
  894. >You groan as you wait out the awkwardness of a stallion sucking on YOUR Anons dick
  895. >Though the urge to join is tempting
  896. >…naw
  897. >Not yet
  898. >You suddenly here a yell
  899. >“LING I SWEAR TO GOD”
  900. >Shit
  901. >You poke your head out of the door
  902. >Sunburst is in bed
  903. >Sleeping
  904. >Anon is standing in his underwear
  905. >WEW LAD ITS REAL WARM IN THIS ROOM
  906. >“LING WHAT THE FUCK”
  907. “What? I’ve been in the bathroom”
  908. >He hurries past you washing his hands
  909. >“Ya know if you’re going to be a cock sucker at least ask permission”
  910. “Wh..I didn’t..what the shit it was Sunburst”
  911. >“Don’t try pushing that on him Ling, he’s been through a lot, but he isn’t gay”
  912. >U wot m8
  913. >You glare at Sunburst
  914. >He licks his lips
  915. >That sneaky bastard
  916. >“I’m sleeping in the RV tonight. Be up for the maid. Good night”
  917. “Night master”
  918. >He groans as he slams the door behind him, going outside with the keys in just his underwear
  919. >..He totally liked it
  920. >You decide to go to bed anyway
  921. >Well at least you have the whole bed to yourself
  922. >Morning rolls around quicker than you’d like to admit
  923. >Cadence is already awake, doing her hair
  924. >Thankfully she’s pretty much got the dye down
  925. >You stretch and groan
  926. >Anon is at the foot of the bed getting dressed
  927. >Sunburst is still asleep
  928. >Happy little cocksucker
  929. >You get up and Anon and yourself give an awkward glance
  930. >“Not a word”
  931. “Agreed”
  932. >You swagger on next to Cadence and wash your face for the morning
  933. >Cadence glances at you with a smirk
  934. >You give her a ‘friendly’ slap on the back making her yelp
  935. >You grin right back and go wake up Sunburst
  936. >By shaking him
  937. >He wakes with a gasp and flails his hooves
  938. >You smile down at him
  939. >Sunburst gives you a shy, coy grin before slinking off to the bathroom
  940. >You and Cadence wait by the door, Anon and Sunburst follow behind soon
  941. >Making sure the room is cleared out you all head out to the breakfast buffet
  942. >No Maids yet
  943. >Soon though
  944. >Breakfast is as expected, a simple buffet with lots of difference choices
  945. >You get Sausage, eggs, a small bowl of cereal, and a couple pancakes
  946. >Anon gets the same, as well as two cups of coffee
  947. >Cadence gets a stack of pancakes and a couple biscuits
  948. >Sunburst gets a big bowl of fruity cereal
  949. >it actually looks good and colorful, more like equestrian food
  950. >The four of you eat in peace, its morning, fuck mornings, everyones sleepy
  951. >You head up to the room to wait for the maids rounds while everyone else gets ready to go and has seconds
  952. >Sitting alone in the room you enjoy the love of some near by moaning
  953. >Its kinda shitty and bitter
  954. >But its enough to fill you for at least a day
  955. >You wait watching the TV for any sign of Chrysalis telling you what to do
  956. >Nothing comes in
  957. >Well a confused maid does
  958. >Just a human who sees you
  959. >She stares for a moment
  960. >You stare back
  961. >She then slowly backs out
  962. >You roll your eyes and follow her out, you see her moving to the next room
  963. >Down the hall you see another maids trolly
  964. >Going over to it confirms your suspicion
  965. >A little emblem of a number is on it
  966. >Upon poking your head inside you see a changeling, in pony form
  967. >She looks rather nice really, a unicorn, White with diamonds on her butt, purple curled hair
  968. >Rarity, if you remember correctly
  969.  >You rush inside, grabbing her
  970. “We need to go”
  971. >The ling looks at you, then her work for only a moment before hugging you tight
  972. “Oh thank goodness sis. Lets go!”
  973. >She folds the blanket then uses magic to pull the cart into the room, closing the door behind her as she follows you
  974. >The two of you casually walk together, slow, but deliberate, towards the door
  975. >As soon as you reach the door you both run for the RV full speed
  976. >Anon, Cadence, and Sunburst already there and ready to go
  977. >You see, behind you, an angry maid walking your direction
  978. >Since she isn’t running the best you can assume is that she didn’t see yoru sister being loaded up
  979. >Not wanting to deal with her shit you slam the door in front of her
  980. >She falls back with a loud oof
  981. >You smirk proudly
  982. >Anon chuckles
  983. >Cadence giggles
  984. >The truck chortles
  985. >Wait that’s just the rust
  986. >Anon casually pulls out and looks around
  987. >“Lets hurry”
  988. “Yes, lets”
  989. >You all get on the highway, and you have to slam the door, locking it while Anon drives
  990. >Luckily not at break neck speeds like your rescue for Cadence
  991. >Looking behind you, the maid has already claimed your bed, reverting from Rarity back to her changeling form
  992. >“Wow Ling! You got a nice place here!”
  993. >You eye your sister suspiciously
  994. >She grins at you brightly
  995. >…She’s gotta get to equestria soon, she’s gonna drive you nuts
  996. “yes…and..my bed”
  997. >“This?” She motions to the bed shes on
  998. >You nod
  999. >“NICE!”
  1000. “..Can I have my bed back”
  1001. >“Nope”
  1002. >She gives you a sickeningly sweet grin and lays back
  1003. >Almost immediately going to sleep
  1004. >You face palm and shake your head
  1005. >Now you remember which sister this is
  1006. >Cocky bitch
  1007. “So have you thought of a name 1337?”
  1008. >“A name?”
  1009. >The changeling, who is one of your sisters, looks down at you curiously
  1010. >from YOUR bunk
  1011. “well, yeah, a name, I go by Ling here”
  1012. >“A changeling named ling”
  1013. >She looks at you for a moment before getting a grin
  1014. >“I see”
  1015. >Oh shit nigga
  1016. >“Then I will be called Chang”
  1017. >JUST
  1018. “You cant name yourself that”
  1019. >she head tilts trying to be cute
  1020. >It doesn’t work
  1021. >“Why not”
  1022. “Chang Ling? Really”
  1023. >“yeah”
  1024. >She grins
  1025. >You groan and shake your head, taking Cadences bed for now
  1026. >While you try to lay down to wait out the ling drive
  1027. >Chang as she calls herself now just wont shut up
  1028. >You put a pillow over your head but it does little to hold her back as she tells you EVERYTHING that’s happened to her since the war
  1029. >every
  1030. >fucking
  1031. >THING
  1032. >When you get a break from the talking, you grab the walkie talkie
  1033. “Anon whats the next stop”
  1034. >Static
  1035. >“We’re heading out to texas, I wanna try something”
  1036. “What something?”
  1037. >“Steak”
  1038. >You go silent
  1039. “Steak…the thing you can get anywhere,  you’re going to texas for it?”
  1040. >Anon chuckles loudly
  1041. >“Not just any steak. A 72 ounce”
  1042. >dudewat
  1043. “Explain”
  1044. >“You’ll see it when we get there”
  1045. >The talkie goes back to static and you put it back on the charging port
  1046. >Weird
  1047. >When Chang returns to YOUR bed, she goes back to talking
  1048. >Luckily,  she hasn’t been abused
  1049. >But she was sold, a lot
  1050. >No surprise really
  1051. >You are reminded of the one time she walked in while Chrysalis was in an important meeting, walked right by everyone, made herself a sandwich with the party food, and walked right back out
  1052. >10 days in the mines didn’t help her gain any sense either
  1053. >Weird changeling
  1054. >It only takes 4 hours to drive to Anons goal
  1055. >But it feels like 3 days due to Changs constant chatting
  1056. >“And THAT’S how I managed to be a maid while disguised as a slutty unicorn. Oh and then when you and-”
  1057. >Anon swings open the door
  1058. >“WE’RE HERE”
  1059. >Oh thank Chrysalis
  1060. >>“……...Finally”
  1061. >Stepping out, you see Cadence visibly cringing, and Starburst staring at the sign
  1062. >FREE 72OZ STEAK
  1063. >Anon rubs his hands together menacingly
  1064. >You notice Chang grinning in the corner of your eye
  1065. “Been a while since you’ve had any protien”
  1066. >“Well technically back whe-”
  1067. “No”
  1068. >You turn to face her
  1069. “Stop there. I don’t want to hear about your escapades with human anatomy”
  1070. >It stops nothing, as Chang starts explaining one of her previous owners
  1071. >You use your magic to clamp her mouth shut
  1072. >Not today bitch
  1073. >Chang and yourself change to ponies, Rarity and Fleur De Lis respectively
  1074. >You all enter, getting, as expected, strange looks from some humans who were not exactly fond of ponies in their restaurant
  1075. >However Anon saying he’s going for the challenge , the mood changes, and the waitress brings him to one of the ‘challenge tables’
  1076. >Just normal tables with counters on them
  1077. >All of you get drinks, yourself and Cadence getting ciders, Anon a honey blonde lager, and sunburst and chang soda
  1078. >Chang on soda
  1079. >Not exactly preferred
  1080. >The beers are brought, and an announcement is made
  1081. >The eyes following to Anon with the huge steak in front of him
  1082. >And 4 ponies
  1083. >its uncomfortable
  1084. >ITS SO BIG
  1085. >Such a big, juicy…meaty..
  1086. >You shake the haze from your head, eyes wide, staring downward
  1087. >Then take a deep breath and lean in, taking a deep breath
  1088. >Smells delicious
  1089. >Anon smacks your horn
  1090. >DAMN
  1091. >the waiter gives you a kind smile
  1092. >Onlookers did not
  1093. >A soft green glow is in your eyes, which you see reflected on Anons knife
  1094. >Oh
  1095. >You sit back in the eat and Anon starts cutting the steak into small bite sized bits
  1096. >The timer hasn’t started and the small instruction leaflet explains he can do pretty much anything but eat it, but as soon as he takes a bite, it starts
  1097. >Its taking a painfully look time
  1098. >Yourself and Chang practically drools
  1099. >Damn humans and their obsession with meat turning your into carnivores
  1100. >Cadence and Sunburst seem disgusted but intrigued, Sunburst seeming to be gauging Anons stomach, doing some mental calculations, and figuring up something
  1101. >You suspect he doesn’t think Anon can do it
  1102. >You hope he doesn’t, the steak is medium rare and looks delicious
  1103. >And he didn’t even get you any
  1104. >With a loud, angered, sigh you lean back in your chair to watch
  1105. >Look look at whats on his place
  1106. >Shrimp Cocktail, Baked Potato, Salad, with Roll, Butter, and of course the 72 oz. Steak
  1107. >Anon looks at the clock
  1108. >Stabs his meat
  1109. >And begin!
  1110. >You watch with suspicion, which soon changes to surprise
  1111. >he’s downing it with ease
  1112. >Your eyes go wide, Sunburst stares as well, you feel as if his mental calculations are falling apart before him
  1113. >Comical really
  1114. >Chang cheers for him happily and Cadence seems to be ignoring it
  1115. >Probably all that delicious meat
  1116. >Anon took bite after bite, followed by a gulp of beer, then repeated
  1117. >At least 12 oz of steak
  1118. >You can’t even eat THAT much, but soon he was racking up more and more
  1119. >Half way through, Changs eyes are wide
  1120. >Poor girls drooling
  1121. >Sunburst grabs a pen from Anons pocket, and a napkin, he writes some stuff down in equestrian
  1122. >Then passes it to you
  1123. >You shrug
  1124. “I have no idea what any of this means”
  1125. >You poke at the numbers curiously
  1126. >Anon takes another bite
  1127. >“It means that Anons a fatass”
  1128. >Anon chokes back a laugh
  1129. >You don’t
  1130. >Cadence even giggles some
  1131. >Anon drops his fork, over dramatically grabbing the table
  1132. >Several eyes are wide
  1133. >He lets out a long, hard burp
  1134. >Gagging in the process
  1135. >He stares down at the steak
  1136. >Less than 1 ounce left
  1137. >Just a bite to him
  1138. >I couldn’t hold back my both amusement and cheering
  1139. “LETS GO ANON YOU CAN DO IT”
  1140. >>“DON’T BE A PUSSY” Chrysalis  followed
  1141. >“WOO” Chang and Sunburst called in unison
  1142. >Cadence gave a little clop, cringing as she sees some of the red juices on the plate
  1143. >You and chang grab each other with a grin
  1144. >Sometimes you DO like your sister
  1145. >Sometimes
  1146. >He smiles at you then picks up the last chunk
  1147. >15 minutes left
  1148. >How..
  1149. >Oh right the other stuff
  1150. >Anon looks at the rest of the meal with a burp
  1151. >He takes the shrimp, with the cocktail sauce, roll, and butter, and stuffs it in the baked potato, taking it into his hand he eats it
  1152. >Like a disgusting burrito of starch and crustatian  
  1153. >He just uses his juice covered fork to scoop the salad all together into his mouth, not even putting anything on it
  1154. >The salad looked cheap and not that great
  1155. >Technically, he was done, but for some reason, Anon came up with a new idea, something to emphasis he can do more
  1156. >The absolute madman
  1157. >He grabs the plate and sucks the fat and juices off it
  1158. >You gag some as he drinks the grease
  1159. >Then finishes his half of the beer
  1160. >He grins at everyone watching
  1161. >The beer and grease, it becomes obvious, was not required by any means
  1162. >He turns to the waiter
  1163. >“I’m not done”
  1164. >A questioning, but also slightly annoyed look crosses his face
  1165. “I want the biggest glass you got full of more of this Ale, and the apple pie”
  1166. >You feel something in your stomach cry for the same
  1167. >While you brain tries to comprehend that your averagely built friend, barely 175 pounds, just finished that whole thing off and wants more
  1168. >Plus a boot of beer
  1169. >Well, the boot is understandable, it IS a nice little plastic boot
  1170. >He finishes his last two items much slower, and orders their smaller 16 oz steak meal for you and chang
  1171. >Nice of him
  1172. >You all pile back into the RV after Anon pays, getting his money back from the challenge, only to hand some  back to cashier for the meals
  1173. >Anon drives to the very back of the parking lot, out of the sight of any people, and goes back to his bed, flopping down, and needing a rest
  1174. >You and chang sit at the table to eat
  1175. >well, you do, Chang sits on your bed
  1176. “HEY NO EATING ON MY BED”
  1177. >You yell, but she keeps eating
  1178. >You sigh and shake your head
  1179. >Sunburst eats in silence in front of you, a smile on his face
  1180. >He passes you the note he wrote out with the numbers
  1181. >it has scribbles in it
  1182. >“I lost count” He laughs
  1183. >You smile at him
  1184. “So whats next Anon?”
  1185. >You look over to the poor man laying on the bed, his stomach gurgling
  1186. >He pushed himself too much just for show
  1187. >“Albuquerque”
  1188. “Huh?”
  1189. >“We’re passing through there next. I need to make a left turn there”
  1190. >You didn’t understand, nor question it
  1191. >You are sitting in the front seat
  1192. >You are on your way out of Texas, heading for.. Wherever it is Anon demands to go
  1193. >Albuquerque  you believe was the name
  1194. >Of course it only takes a few hours to get there and you see Anon practically bouncing in his seat
  1195. >You look at him confused
  1196. >He shoots you a huge, gitty grin
  1197. >“I’ve been wanting to do this ever since I was 5”
  1198. >Wat
  1199. “Wat”
  1200. >“I need a Carrot we’re getting close”
  1201. “Uh, I think we have some in the cooler for me”
  1202. >He grins as you pull him out a fairly small Carrot for him
  1203. >About the size of a Churchill cigar
  1204. “Sooooo WHY do you need a Carrot”
  1205. >“You’ll see”
  1206. >The two of you drive in complete silence for nearly 20 minutes before Anon heads up I-25
  1207. >You look at the map
  1208. “We’re leaving whats..”
  1209. >Anon holds back a snicker
  1210. >He veers right
  1211. >You sit in silence watching the map, then back to the road for several minutes
  1212. >You check the map confused
  1213. “Anon you were suppose to turn le-”
  1214. >He pulls over taking the map from you
  1215. >And puts the carrot in his mouth, green facing out
  1216. >“WELLL LING, EHHHH LOOKS LIKE I SHOULDA MADE THAT LEFT TURN BACK AT ALBAQUERQUE”
  1217. >You stare at him
  1218. “You didn’t”
  1219. >He gives you the biggest grin
  1220. >You groan and firmly plant your foot to your face
  1221. “Chrystalis damn you”
  1222. >“EHHH WHATS UP DOC, YOU FEELIN UPSET?”
  1223. “Uuuugh”
  1224. >>“I don’t understand”
  1225. “All the better my Queen”
  1226. >Anon finished off half the carrot and gives the rest to you as a peace offering
  1227. >You’ve never seen anyone make such a terrible joke but been so excited for it in your life
  1228. >Except maybe Chang
  1229. >But that’s only if she’s drunk
  1230. >Some things just need to be forgotten
  1231. >You shake your head and lean into the window as Anon drives
  1232. >You see the windows in the back pop open then hear a faint scream
  1233. >Someone forgot to tighten down anything that could fly away in the wind
  1234. >Makes you chuckle to yourself
  1235. >Only…
  1236. >You peek at the clock
  1237. >5 hours left
  1238. >You stand on top of the RV
  1239. >Hooves firmly planted
  1240. >Anon takes it slow, driving his truck and the trailer up the dirt road
  1241. >Nearly vertical up the mountain
  1242. “How high are we!”
  1243. >You yell just as your ears pop
  1244. >Fug
  1245. >You sigh and look around
  1246. >The air feels.. cleaner.. Here
  1247. >Even more so than when you went to the mountains with just Anon
  1248. >Your horn feels.. lighter
  1249. >A sure sign of magic in the area
  1250. >It excites you, makes you feel better, as if more ready for the day than usual
  1251. >And no need for a disguise here
  1252. >“We’re…uh.. “
  1253. >Anon pulls out something and holds it out the window
  1254. >“ 10000 feet up. And rising”
  1255. >Oh boy
  1256. >You hear the noise of a pony puking
  1257. >OH BOY
  1258. >ITS GONNA BE A FUN TRIP
  1259. >You all reach the end of a road and Anon backs out
  1260. >He gets the RV turned around, with your help, the trailer is backed up under the trees and leaves his truck facing the road
  1261. >from the road angle it pretty much blocks the RV from sight to
  1262. >Anon waves you off from the top of the trailer
  1263. >“Alright Ling, check on everyone and help me set up”
  1264. >You salute and hope down
  1265. >You find Cadence gripping the side of the toilet with a groan
  1266. >You laugh
  1267. “Altitude sickness?”
  1268. >“N..no”
  1269. >She groans loudly
  1270. >You roll your eyes
  1271. “Well unless you and sunburst hav-”
  1272. >>“LING ATTENTION”
  1273. >You eep and stand at attention
  1274. >Then remember she isn’t actually there, just in your head from Equestria
  1275. “Yes my queen?”
  1276. >>“A near by Changeling says she saw Twilight Sparkle. Keep an eye out. I’ve also heard some rumors of our sisters working in some kind of warehouse. I havnt found any confirmation of this though. They must be on their suppressants”
  1277. “I see..”
  1278. >>“If you come across these. Well, you know what to do”
  1279. >Anon calls your name
  1280. “Yes my queen”
  1281. >You hop down off the trailer and go to help set up camp for the night
  1282. >Anon sits out the M1 Garand and 10 gauge shotgun
  1283. >You havnt seen those for a while
  1284. “What’re you going to do with those?”
  1285. >You sit a few camping chairs up and use your magic to float wood from the near by tree line over
  1286. >“Well, shoot em, I suppose. We’re on a hill, so I figured if I set up right I’ll get it to shoot into the side of the mountain”
  1287. >Not what you wanted to know
  1288. “What are you going to USE them on?”
  1289. >“Nothing”
  1290. “Nothing?”
  1291. >Anon turns to you and nods, holding one of the guns on his shoulder
  1292. >“Just shooting in that direction, Might set up some cans or bottles. “
  1293. “Oh..”
  1294. >You look at him, then nod
  1295. >Getting everything set up takes a while, but ti does eventually get done
  1296. >You promptly sit down on the ground and roll over\
  1297. >Chang and Sunburst walk up to you, sitting on either side
  1298. >Cadence looks around, as if sensing something
  1299. >You curiously watch
  1300. >She tries to cast some kind of spell
  1301. >It fizzles out, making her wince
  1302. >She moves over towards where Anon is building a fire pit
  1303. >“There you are” she whispers
  1304. >You blink confused
  1305. “What is it?”
  1306. >She turns to you
  1307. >“Magic. Not a lot, but a definite leak. We’ll be able to send them back here”
  1308. >SUnburst and Chang look to her
  1309. >She starts grinning
  1310. >“Its exactly as it sounds, sending you back to equestria”
  1311. >Their eyes go wide, almost in synch
  1312. >Chang claps her hooves together
  1313. >“Oh boy! That means I get to go home!”
  1314. >Several groans of displeasure follow in your head
  1315. >You smirk
  1316. >Sunburst smiles at you
  1317. >“That’s means..I get to see Starlight again.. I hope she’s okay”
  1318. >Cadence looks to them understanding “it will take some time”
  1319. >Anon turns to them “Its okay, take as long as you need”
  1320. >Cadence goes back inside the RV to start working out.. Something
  1321. >You, Sunburst and Chang watch as Anon cleans the guns
  1322. >Chang gets to setting up a fire
  1323. >This makes you nervous
  1324. >She piles up a lot of wood
  1325. “Uh, Chang, maybe you should..”
  1326. >“NO WAY LING I GOT THIS”
  1327. >She didn’t even hear what you were going to recommend though
  1328. >Doesn’t matter
  1329. >Chang piles on the wood and hurries over to Anons pack
  1330. >Before you can stop her, she puts a hole in the small bottle of lighter fluid and tosses it into the fire pit
  1331. >Oh god
  1332. “ANON, CHANG WAI-”
  1333. >Poof
  1334. >A large plume of fire shoots straight up
  1335. >Chang screams and falls back
  1336. >You smell burnt hair
  1337. >Anon is standing there with wide eyes
  1338. >He looks at you
  1339. >Then at Chang
  1340. >Then to Sunburst
  1341. >Who is missing his eye brows
  1342. >You start laughing
  1343. >Anon starts laughing
  1344. >Chang is already laughing
  1345. >The fire is crackling, loudly
  1346. >Cadence bursts out of the RV
  1347. >“WHAT HAPPENED I HEARD A NOISE”
  1348. >SHe sees all of you laughing
  1349. >And Sunburst
  1350. >She slowly backs into the door and closes it
  1351. >When the evening rolls around, its still light out, but the sun is going down
  1352. >Anon has been trying to convince everyone to shoot, but Only yourself and Chang agree to it
  1353. >Not surprised really
  1354. >Blam blam!
  1355. >You chuckle, holding the shotgun in your magic
  1356. >The kick is surprisingly hard to control, but can be done
  1357. >Shooting like this gives you a more confident feeling, and is MUCH MUCH better than your…rampage.. From before
  1358. >Chang waits her turn, watching you and Anon shoot off the cans from a log
  1359. >Anon gets almost every shot!
  1360. >Blam!
  1361. >You miss
  1362. >And blow a hole in a tree
  1363. >Again
  1364. >Damn
  1365. >A few shots later, Anon leans down to chang
  1366. >“Now, Chang, there are 4 basic rules to gun safety, okay?”
  1367. >She nods looking at the old rifle in his hands
  1368. >“First, This gun is LOADED. ALL THE TIME”
  1369. >He points in the chamber
  1370. >“But, theres nothing in it…” CHangr eplies
  1371. >He shakes his head
  1372. >“Doesn’t matter. ALWAYS treat it loaded. Rule 2. Don’t point this at anything you don’t wanna blow away”
  1373. >She looks at him, then towards the end
  1374. >“This thing slings lead at high enough speeds to tear a hole straight through you. Don’t fuck around with it”
  1375. >Chang nods some
  1376. >“Next, Finger”
  1377. >He looks at Changs hooves
  1378. >“Er, magic, off the trigger. The trigger is pulled, It goes boom, a misfire means it shoots when you don’t mean it to, in humans, we get itchy fingers and accidentally shoot. Gets people killed”
  1379. >Chang nods her head “Anything else”
  1380. >Well, I’d say keep control of your weapon, but that’s sort of all of them tied together..”
  1381. >Chang nods some
  1382. >You’re very nervous
  1383. >But.. If anon believes she can handle It..
  1384. >He carefully holds the gun out, Chang pulls it up in her magic
  1385. >So far so good
  1386. >Anon shows her how its loaded while its in her magic
  1387. >Then lets her take control again
  1388. >She turns and aims down range, Anon stands near her, just out of range of her magical field
  1389. >“Deep breath, squeeze the trigger…however you do it”
  1390. >You see the magic form on the trigger
  1391. >And yank the fuck out of it
  1392. >The bullet flies off into somewhere
  1393. >Anon chuckles and pats her head
  1394. >“That’s okay, Again”
  1395. >She fires
  1396. >This time, it misses, but you actually see where it goes!
  1397. >Good start!
  1398. >She fires a few more times ,getting better
  1399. >Annnnd..
  1400. >PING
  1401. >Unf
  1402. >dat ping
  1403. >Chang gasps jumping back, she swings the gun around in front of her so the side is facing her “Agh did I break it! Sorry!”
  1404. >Anon gasps grabbing for the gun
  1405. >Too slow, you surround it in your own magical field and point it away from your head
  1406. “Not okay Chang”
  1407. >You glare
  1408. >Chang just smiles sheepishly at you
  1409. >Anon snatches the gun away
  1410. >“We’re practicing the rest unloaded till we don’t get any more of these mistakes”
  1411. “Hardass”
  1412. >He glares at you
  1413. >You whistle innocently
  1414. >For the most part, the next hour or three is nothing but talking back and forth, as well as a little drinking
  1415. >Anon didn’t bring much though
  1416. >Disappointing really
  1417. >You all sit around the camp fire in silence as Cadence stands near by working out something in the grass, marking exact positions, but also seems nervous
  1418. >You can understand why however
  1419. >Its not every day you send 2 beings through an interdemensional portal
  1420. >Eventually, however, everyone is more relaxed
  1421. >Chrysalis has started getting some changelings ready
  1422. >But, with a pony coming through
  1423. >She’s decided to Contact the princesses
  1424. >There was,,, obviously.. resistance, but after showing off the other changeling, with the missing tail, and clear signs of having been on Earth
  1425. >The two got excited
  1426. >Luna and Celestia both wanted to come, but there was just no way
  1427. >Its almost night, meaning Luna has court, so she decides its her turn to go
  1428. >According to Chrysalis, Celestia told her she was just putting off her duties
  1429. >Luna had stuck her tongue out and left with a small 10 pony regiment of guards
  1430. >Arriving at the old castle, of course, Lunas guard were out numbered
  1431. >By around 400 or so
  1432. >Silly ponies
  1433. >The first look at Cadence through a proper portal, Sunburst, the dang crystalling pony! And a well known changeling. Big deal.
  1434. >Given that the changeling isn’t famous for good reasons..
  1435. >But still
  1436. >You stand back
  1437. >Anon stands back behind cover
  1438. >Sunburst and Chang get ready
  1439. >Cadence drops her belt and cover extending her wings as she focuses the spell on the highest energy area she could find
  1440. >She gulps
  1441. >You gulp
  1442. >Sunburst gulps
  1443. >Anon gulps
  1444. >Chang gulps the last of her beer then crushes the can
  1445. >You see her run to the RV
  1446. >Probably getting something she forgot
  1447. >Cadence focuses on the spell
  1448. >The rift opens
  1449. >A spark of green ignites a fire from the other side, which merges with the pink lightening on this side
  1450. >The spell forms together to create a green and pink ring, on the other side showing the old Everfree forest
  1451. >You stare through it
  1452. >On the other side are 5 of Lunas guards being cautious as they peer through
  1453. >They gasp out loud “Its her my Princess!” One yells
  1454. >Luna rushes over
  1455. >She peers through the portal
  1456. >You see, for the first time, the pony princess
  1457. >One of her wings has a scar down its length
  1458. >Her cutie mark has a bullet wound
  1459. >She has a bald spot on her once flowing mane
  1460. >Only humans could do this kind of irreparable damage
  1461. >Luna waves at you “You must be ling”
  1462. >You blush and look away
  1463. “I am”
  1464. >“I am Princess Lu-”
  1465. >“CAN WE HURRY IT UP HERE”
  1466. >Cadence struggles to hold the portal open
  1467. >Chrysalis seems to be having less trouble, but isn’t fairing much better at all
  1468. >You gasp
  1469. >Chrysalis
  1470. >In the flesh
  1471. >2 feet away at most
  1472. >You want to run through and hug your queen
  1473. >But you know you may fuck it all up
  1474. >She looks.. Much better than the Princess, as she molted off the damaged chitin when she was injured
  1475. >Luna waves sunburst through, who quickly follows orders
  1476. >He looks back at You and Cadence and waves happily “I’ll miss you”
  1477. >Then winks at Anon
  1478. >He shutters and looks away
  1479. >Chang beams brightly, standing half way through the portal “See ya sis! By Princess!”
  1480. >“GO” Princess Cadence cries out
  1481. >She gasps and hops through
  1482. >Wait
  1483. “HEY CHANG GET BACK HERE WITH MY-”
  1484. >You’re cut off
  1485. >The portal makes a strange reversal noise then slams shut at high speeds, letting off a sound like thunder as well as bright pink and green flash
  1486. >Anon looks at you puzzled
  1487. >Cadence collapses to her knees panting
  1488. >You rush into the RV
  1489. >No
  1490. >No
  1491. >NONONONONO
  1492. >THAT BITCH
  1493. “SHE TOOK MY FUCKING HORSE COCK”
  1494. >You sit on your camping chair pouting
  1495. >Chang is laughing at your reaction
  1496. >To be fair, it was a bit over the top
  1497. >But that’s YOUR cock
  1498. >Not hers
  1499. >Especially not hers to give to Chrysalis
  1500. >Who hasn’t spoken to you in nearly 3 hours
  1501. >The last thing she told you was that everyone made it through, and that she got a new message, it was spotty as if the changeling was being forced onto some kind of magic supressant that wasn’t quite strong enough
  1502. >Something about horns, and humans
  1503. >You don’t understand it all
  1504. >Of course almost immediately after she was given her…present.. By Chang
  1505. >Other members of the hive said that she flushes green and went to her room
  1506. >With the dildo
  1507. >Damn it
  1508. >Cadence sits on the ground near the fire, trying to balance a skewer with a marshmallow on it over the fire
  1509. >This of course is her third one, the few two on fire in the pit
  1510. >You giggle some
  1511. >Anon looks over you
  1512. >“If you’re THAT upset about it, I COULD make you one out of wood”
  1513. “Wood?”
  1514. >He nods with a smirk
  1515. >You shake your head
  1516. “No way, splinters are not okay”
  1517. >Anon chuckles and spits some of his vodka, mountain dew mixture into the fire, making Cadence jump back with the small flash of flame
  1518. >He grins at her
  1519. >Cadence glares and uses her magic to knock back his chair
  1520. >All is fair in love and war bitch
  1521. >You look up
  1522. >Unlike silly ponies, your night vision is excellent
  1523. >You see a fire
  1524. >Well, just a small dot of a flicker
  1525. >But that isn’t what intrigues you
  1526. >No, that would be
  1527. >A rainbow in the night
  1528. >OH SHIT NIGGA
  1529. >You quickly try to cover yourself up, but its too late
  1530. >your bright green fire of magic would surely draw her in, so instead you stay
  1531. >No point in hiding anymore anyway
  1532. >When the rainbow maned Pegasus lands, you gulp
  1533. >You know this one
  1534. >The one who takes pleasure in fighting off changelings
  1535. >Cadence sees and gasps out
  1536. >“RAINBOW DASH!”
  1537. >She eyes her suspiciously for a moment before her eyes grow wide, a slight smile taking her face “WHoa, Cadence! What happened to you! You’re..well Blue!”
  1538. >You keep some distance and stay quiet
  1539. >Anon seems confused as he slowly bites into his smores
  1540. >You watch as the two talk, mostly about the brighter sides of whats been going on
  1541. >Cadence glances over a lot, till she points at you
  1542. >Oh shiiiiit nooo
  1543. >Rainbow Dash turns to face you
  1544. >You gulp
  1545. >She narrows her eyes, wings flare upward in a defensive stance
  1546. >She gets in front of Cadence
  1547. >“Are you CRAZY This is a CHANGELING the ones who attacked YOUR weeding AND then tried to attack us after we lost to the humans!”
  1548. “Hey!”
  1549. >You grunt standing up
  1550. >Anon slowly reaches for the gun on his side
  1551. “I wasn’t even THERE”
  1552. >“And” Cadence looks at her “she helped me out of my bad situation”
  1553. >Dash  eyes you suspiciously for a few minutes before lowering her stabce
  1554. >“FIne, but if she tries anything”  Dash turns to Cadence
  1555. >“She wont”
  1556. >You nod in turn
  1557. “No plans on it.”
  1558. >Anon stands up “ALLLLRIGHT WHO WANTS CHOCOLATE”
  1559. >Who DOESN’T want chocolate
  1560. >All of you gather around to chat some, and ease the tension between yourself and RD, and share smores
  1561. >Fuck yeah, smores
  1562. >Eventually, RD gets up and looks to you and Cadence
  1563. >“Hey, guys, I’ll be back in 10 seconds flat.”
  1564. >You shrug some
  1565. >Cadence smiles warmly and nods to her “Of course”
  1566. >RD gulps down her snack and flies off
  1567. >You look to Cadence who gives a caring smile, and a giggle, in turn
  1568. >After another few moments, above comes the rainbow mane once again
  1569. >You stands up, as does Cadence, having a feeling how this is going
  1570. >“They said you can come over!” She lands with a loud thud
  1571. >you look at Anon accusingly
  1572. >He shrugs “I didn’t ask”
  1573. >Cadence.
  1574. >You sigh and start to get ready to transform, but are informed she has already told on you
  1575. >Fuuuuuuuuuck
  1576. >Cadence, on the other hand, HAS to be in costume
  1577. >No police allowed
  1578. >She puts on her little roll and straightens her mane, then piles up into the truck
  1579. >you get in the cab as well
  1580. >RD gets in the bed to help direct you all
  1581. >Its not even a long drive, just awkward
  1582. >15 minutes into it Anon pulls up to a small camp sight containing two humans and a grey pony
  1583. >The grey pony looks
  1584. >Stone cold
  1585. >You would laugh at your own pun if it wasn’t so bad
  1586. >Anon sees the look the other Anon is giving him and narrows his eyes
  1587. >“They’re talking shit on Burnace”
  1588. “Who?”
  1589. >He slaps the trucks old metal interior
  1590. >Oh
  1591. >The truck
  1592. >Everyone piles out one by one and RD goes over to help introduce
  1593. >The first of the humans holds out his hand to your Anon
  1594. >“Hey, nice to meet you!  Welcome to our little camp here.  I'm told Rainbow Dash is buddies with your unicorn there.  Name's Anon.”
  1595. >Oh shit
  1596. >Two Anons, as if this couldn’t get any more awkward
  1597. >Your Anon gives a shake
  1598. >A bit harder looking
  1599. >Trying to outman the other perhaps?
  1600. >You taste all sorts of mixed feelings to the point it freaks you out almost
  1601. >Too many flavors in one
  1602. >“Howdy” Your Anon smiles "I too, am Anon.  This here is Sea Breeze and Ling."
  1603. >Upon hearing her name, Cadence bows her head
  1604. >You just give a meek wave and a toothy smile, showing off your fangs
  1605. >Er, what there is of them
  1606. >You ignore almost everything he says till you hear the magic word
  1607. >Sausage
  1608. >You perk your ears up and look at him
  1609. >Is that a smirk?
  1610. >Oh and beer
  1611. >Beer is good to
  1612. >You all gather the glorious alcohol
  1613. >Cadence takes a seat across from the second human, while you sit next to Anon, who is across from the other Anon
  1614. >Cadence gulps, you can tell she’d ruffle her feathers and look away if she could under that outfit of hers
  1615. >You see the other Anon looking you other and look away as well
  1616. >“So, this is Ling” Anon says gesturing you to
  1617. >You look at him, then smile at the Anon
  1618. “Hello” You nod
  1619. >“And this is Sea Breeze” He motions to Cadence
  1620. >Cadence smiles meekly and gulps as Incog eyes her down
  1621. >“So, you are one of the Pinkie Pie's sisters, hmm?"
  1622. >She turns to Maud to change the subject
  1623. >"Yes.  Maud Pie.  Good to meet you...  Sea Breeze."
  1624. >"Yes...  Sea Breeze."
  1625. >Her eyes dart about slightly as she takes a sip from her glass of beer.
  1626. >The Anon examines Cadence for a while before speaking up :So, ya'll enjoying the nice late summer weather up here in the La Sals?”
  1627. >Cadence turns to him and nods "Yes, quite.  It's also good to see another pony I know, and a sister of a pony I know."
  1628. >You decide, ultimately, to speak to the ponies and end the awkwardness
  1629. >You, Cadence, Dash, and Maud all begin speaking about your adventures
  1630. >it’s a pleasant experience you quite enjoy
  1631. (For more details on the adventures of these ponies please read RockMonlgers story here: pastebin.com/v2j02fq3 pastebin.com/Fzp7Tpnd )
  1632. >The following few minutes is a chorus of ‘hmmm, mmmhmm.. And yep’
  1633. >yep
  1634. >The other Anon speaks up
  1635. “So, what do you do, Anon? “
  1636. >“IT”
  1637. “Yeah, thats a good line a' work.  I work for the USGS.  I look at rocks.”
  1638. >>“Rocks are neat” A tired sounding Chrysalis says in your brain
  1639. >You are about to speak up when you notice Incog looking nervous
  1640. >Oh shit nigga
  1641. >He knows
  1642. >Oh fuck
  1643. >He’s gonna get the cops
  1644. >FUUUUU
  1645. "I uhhh... do stuff.  Internet stuff.  Yeah."
  1646. >You groan and stand up
  1647. >>“Kill him if you need to”
  1648. >God damn it mom I can’t do that
  1649. "You know who she is, don't you."
  1650. >Incog's eyes dart back and forth.
  1651. >He then sighs.
  1652. >"I guess I can't hide it from someone who can feel and taste emotions.  Yes, I know that pony."
  1653. >Cadence and Anon suddenly look really nervous.
  1654. >"But, I won't tell anyone.  You seem to be putting a lot of effort into being...  Incognito."
  1655. >You stifle a giggle, trying to keep your imitating buggness at full power
  1656. >"I guess... It'll let me be more comfortable of I don't have to wear this..."
  1657. >Cadence takes off a large pink piece of fuzzy cloth that was covering her midriff.
  1658. >And beneath it shows her pair of large pegasus wings.
  1659. >The Anon seems confused
  1660. >Incog speaks.
  1661. >"Thats Princess Cadence, soverign of the Crystal Empire.  One of the Alicorn Princesses of Equestria."
  1662. >Incog bows
  1663. >"It is a pleasure to meet you."
  1664. >A pang of sadness smacks you like a 2x4 to the skull from Cadence
  1665. >Fucking human doesn’t realize what he just did
  1666. >The Anon speaks up “Huh...  I guess that explains the unicorn and pegasus thing going on at the same time.  Well, nice to meet you then, Cadence.”
  1667. >Your Anon speaks up.
  1668. >"So, thats it?"
  1669. >Other Anon turns to him “What?  I figure you were being secretive not wanting to bring attention to such a... unique pony while you are on vacation or something.”
  1670. >"Yeah.  Sure, that works."
  1671. >Maud then questions Cadence.
  1672. >"So, that big flash earlier, was that something you did?"
  1673. >"Yes...  I was practicing a spell."
  1674. >Anon looks like he wants to chuckle “Musta been a hell of a spell to make such a big flash that was visible from down here while the sun was still sorta up.”
  1675. >He takes a deep swig of his beer.
  1676. >Cadence looks at him nervously  "I suppose you could say that."
  1677. >He looks at your group for a moment then speaks up “So, ya'll paid a visit to any of the big parks down below here near town?”
  1678. >Your turn to talk!
  1679. “We stopped a little bit along the roads coming here to look at some of the sights!"
  1680. >>“And look for ponies” Chrysalis adds
  1681. >….shhh
  1682. "But, we couldn't get out and look too much.  We needed to find a place to camp."
  1683. >He looks to you “You seem awfully excited, Ling.”
  1684. "The canyons and stuff around here kinda remind me of...  home."
  1685. >Cadence speaks. "Yeah, there is quite a bit of similarity between the Equestrian Badlands and some of the stuff we drove through today...  It does have a beauty all it's own."
  1686. >"I quite like it.  Make's it easier to look at the rocks."
  1687. >Other Anon speaks up following his pony “I agree, Maud...  Sure as hell beats trying to figure out the geology on the east coast...  Too many god damn plants and too much fuckin' soil.”
  1688. >Anon speaks. "I do think we all want to go pay a visit to at least a few of the parks near here, though."
  1689. >“Yeah, they are good parks.  Lots of places to go offroading 'round here as well.  Though I'd be careful with your vehicle on some of the more intense shit. Ya kinda need a well equipped jeep for the best stuff...  Can't have too long of a wheel base.  Or too heavy a chasis.”
  1690. >You have no idea what this other Anon is talking about now
  1691. >Anon puts on a proud smirk defending his baby "My truck can handle itself pretty well, man."
  1692. >“Whatever.  Just don't get stuck if you do go off into the desert.  Think of it as a fair warning that some of the shit out here is crazy for offloading.”
  1693. >Maud waxes lyrical about the San Rafael project, and her own smaller projects at home.
  1694. >Rainbow Dash talks about her retail work experiences.
  1695. >You  and Cadence talk about traveling across the US, visiting all kinds of interesting places, though avoid any discussion regarding your other plans
  1696. >You also explain to him about the changeling lifestyle
  1697. >Even the hive mind
  1698. >They don’t seem to care a lot
  1699. >Other than Incog
  1700. >That guy freaks you out
  1701. >Other Anon gets up and fiddles with the food
  1702. >AW SHIT NIGGA FOOD TIME
  1703. >“Alright folks, dinner is almost ready.  If'n ya don't want the sausage, you can get your rice and gumbo now.”
  1704. >Sausage?
  1705. >This guy is based
  1706. >Maud, Rainbow Dash, and Cadence all get up, and serve themselves rice and gumbo.
  1707. >Looking to his friend, the other Anon speaks up “What would you think about going rafting tomorrow?  I'm a certified guide, so all we'd need to do is rent equipment and maybe a van to drop us off up stream.’
  1708. >Certified what
  1709. >"I dunno, I've never gone rafting before." Incog replies
  1710. >“Eh, the stretch of the Colorado above Moab is pretty easy going.  I could run a 6 person raft solo if I had to.  You'd most be along for the ride.”
  1711. >"How much would it cost?"
  1712. >You watch as the other Anon pauses
  1713. >“Probably $20 for you to rent a life vest and helmet for the day...  Not entirely sure how much pony fitted rafting equipment runs to rent, however. Not sure if you'd need something special for Rainbow, considering she is a pegasus.  Spaces for wings, n'at.”
  1714. >You are suddenly thankful for the ability to hide your wings under the sectioned area of your shell
  1715. >Incog nods back to him and thinks for a moment.
  1716. >"I've never been...  Sounds like it could be fun."
  1717. > “Shit man...  You live next to a pretty popular place to go rafting. Put in up in Dotsero, and ride through Gleenwood Canyon, and end up right in downtown Gleenwood Springs. Maybe go a little further if you are more adventurous.”
  1718. >You have no idea where any of these places are
  1719. >Rainbow quickly pipes up "Aww man, that sounds awesome!  I've seen the rafts and littler boats go down the river behind the Kum & Go.  I've always wanted to try!"
  1720. >The other Anon seems amused by something “Heh... If you enjoyed the rafting enough, Rainbow, You could go all the way from right behind where you work, to Moab by raft. Probably take a few days, but would probably be pretty easy going, and fun.”
  1721. >You nudge your Anon looking up at him “Rafting, you say?  Can we be come along?"
  1722. >The other Anon pauses  “Getting an 8 person raft wouldn't be too much work, and you could still handle it putting in upstream from Moab and heading back to town. Yeah, if ya'll want.  I could get an 8 person raft. Could take my truck up to Dewey Bridge, and put in there.   Leave your truck down in Moab by the river and when we are done, you could drive us back to my truck while everyone else putzes around by the river.”
  1723. >This man talks, a lot
  1724. >"Yeah, that could work." You Anon nods
  1725. >Incog looks over to the two Anons "Maybe I could go fishing while we wait.  Would be fun!"
  1726. > The other Anon puts on a look that you describe as.. Knowledgeable “You could try, but you ain't gonna catch anything in the Colorado near Moab. Too much uranium.”
  1727. >Incog gulps.
  1728. >Maud interjects. "Is it from all the mining in the area?"
  1729. >“Somewhat.  A lot of it is from the river cutting through the uranium bearing rocks.  The rest is attributed to the old uranium mine near the river there. We'd be stopping upstream of the old mine and its tailings pile though.  Shit's kind of a mess.”
  1730. >Incog looks slightly less nervous after finding that out.
  1731. >“Though, if you are ever here without me, I wouldn't go playing around on that big sand dune across from the Arches entrance.” He gives a sip on his beer as if emphasizing “Shit's right upwind from the superfund site.  It's pretty damn hot.”
  1732. >Rainbow Dash speaks up. "Hot?"
  1733. >“Radioactive.  Dust from the mine getting in with the sand.  Try though they might, they couldn't stop it all while they were shipping it up the railroad for disposal.”
  1734. >"...  Radioactive?"
  1735. >The other Anon seems distraught
  1736. >You understand radioactivity
  1737. >Ground zero, as they said on the was ‘radioactive with some kind of other word element’
  1738. >Maud steps in to explain. "Its like...  bad magical energy that can make you really sick if you hang around it too much."
  1739. >Other anon continues “Yeah, something like that.  Uranium, something that gives it off, is all over the place in this part of the Colrado Plateau.”
  1740. >Soon enough, the meat is ready.
  1741. >“Aight ya'll, get yer gumbo, get yer rice, and get yer sausage, dinner is served for the rest of us.”
  1742. >You hop up and gather a bit of everything
  1743. >More so than the others
  1744. >You aren’t a pig
  1745. >Just depression eating
  1746. >Because of lost memories
  1747. >And Dildos
  1748. >After everyone eats, and the dishes get done, everyone settles around the campfire, and a glorious evening of hanging out occurs.
  1749. >You all share further stories of times and places
  1750. >Eventually, however, things move towards…your mission
  1751. >Shit.
  1752. >Anon gives really basic details without revealing anything
  1753. >You look at Anon and lean up whispering to him
  1754. “Go on and tell him..I think he’s safe. If he isn’t. Chrysalis will tell me what to do”
  1755. >"We are working, to try to take abused ponies away from their situations..."
  1756. >Chrysalis pop up finally
  1757. >>“Tell them what I told you”
  1758. >Ugh
  1759. >"Also, looking into research on humans trying to figure out magic with unicorn horns."
  1760. >Seeing the Anon pause makes you nervous
  1761. >“I have a buddy who was hired out at some secret lab.  Couldn't tell me where it was. Said he was doing work with X-ray Diffraction and Scanning Electron Microscopes looking at some pony related materials, he said.”
  1762. >wut
  1763. >You Anon looks at him "...  Hear anything else?"
  1764. >“Can't say that I have.  I do think he had a flight out to Las Vegas to get picked up for the job, though.”
  1765. >You and Anon look at eachother
  1766. >“Sorry I can't help you more. I am at least pushing on getting ponies more recognized in academia and research circles.   Maud here is the first pony, far as I can tell, to have their name published in a scientific journal.“
  1767. >he crosses his hands as if looking to show her off
  1768. “She helped with a big project of mine, and I was able to talk my boss into having her name published. A 1;12000 Scale Map of the San Rafael Swell.  A. Ymous and M. Pie".”
  1769. >wut
  1770. >Maud pops up looking at him with
  1771. >Well
  1772. >No real over the top emotions actually "I still don't know if I quite get the big deal over the name on the paper."
  1773. >“I'm telling you, Maud.  It's a big deal.  It means that you are recognized as a legitimate scientist having your name on a paper. And you more than deserve it, with all the help you gave me on that project.  And your name will be on my next project too.  “
  1774. >>“Whoa..that’s a HIGH honor in equestria” Chrysalis adds
  1775. >You sit in quiet watching the group
  1776. >Siiiiiip
  1777. >Yup
  1778. >The night continues, conversations pop up, and so on
  1779. >Eventually Anon holds his hand up "Yeah, I think it's time to head back to our camp.  I'll call your tomorrow, and coordinate for that nice rafting trip." He sighs and looks at you “Lord knows we could use a nice distraction like that."
  1780. >Whats that suppose to mean?
  1781. >Everyone gives their goodbyes as you all pile up
  1782. >Your Anon is a bit drunk
  1783. >fuck
  1784. >The ride back is slow, as your Anon avoids hitting a tree
  1785. >He ends up pulling a bit far away from the Rv
  1786. >You have to remember the E-brake
  1787. >You all pass out in the RV
  1788. >Except yourself, you stay outside, it’s a comfy kind of feel
  1789. >Morning comes around, you feel fine
  1790. >You hurry inside and jump onto the bed, making Anon groan out
  1791. >You jump some grinning down at him
  1792. “ANON WAKE UP”
  1793. >He groans and covered his head with his pillow
  1794. >Cadence groans as well
  1795. >You huff and start rolling up all the windows
  1796. >Grooooooans
  1797. “ANON DAMN IT ANON INVITED US TO RAFT”
  1798. >Uuuuuuugh
  1799. >You sigh and go outside
  1800. >You start bouncing on top of the RV to shake it
  1801. >“FINE I’LL TEXT HIM”
  1802. >You beam happily
  1803. >And wait
  1804. >Then start to pack up all the stuff you need to
  1805. >Water, cloths for Anon, and so forth
  1806. >Upon the expected response, Anon and Cadence start gathering important hings
  1807. >Mostly coffee
  1808. >extra cloths, water proof bag
  1809. >Well, that’s just Anons normal backpack
  1810. >He called it military surplus
  1811. >The camo is blocky and digital looking
  1812. >Shit for camo, but that’s just your opinion
  1813. >Cadence just has him bring a bit of extra water for herself
  1814. >You strap on your camelpack
  1815. >Dry food for maximum noms
  1816. >And an MRE for further noms, military surplus stuff he says
  1817. >Best food for a growing pony he says
  1818. >You have yet to try this
  1819. >When all is said and done you all load up in the truck and head towards the meeting spot
  1820. >Reaching the store doesn’t take long at all, especially with everyone sipping coffee and staring at the road side environment
  1821. >Suddenly your ears perk up realizing something
  1822. >You need to hide your form because you’re going into a crowded town!
  1823. “Anon do I need to hide?”
  1824. >He looks over at you with a glare of one thousand celestias
  1825. “Uh..”
  1826. >“Do whatever you want. I havnt finished”
  1827. >He takes a bite of a sausage rolled in a pancake to emphasize what he means
  1828. >Oh
  1829. >Yoou shrug and stand in the seat, extending your wings fully
  1830. >He looks back to the road
  1831. >You roll down the window
  1832. >And jump
  1833. >He gasps out grabbing for you but missing
  1834. >“LING WHAT THE FUCK”
  1835. >You catch the air on your wings with ease, the loud bee like buzzing following beside the car
  1836. “SLOW DOWN I CAN’T KEEP UP”
  1837. >“LING!”
  1838. >He starts to slow
  1839. >You easily catch up and land with a thump into the bed
  1840. “Well I can’t change in the car! It’ll burn your cushions!”
  1841. >He doesn’t respond as you transform into the tall, white, beautiful unicorn
  1842. >Your new mane promptly goes right back into your face and makes you sputter and cough on it
  1843. >“What the FUCK was that for?”
  1844. >Anon glances back at you
  1845. >Cadence is sleeping
  1846. “What?”
  1847. >“You couldn’t wait! Or as me to pull over?!”
  1848. >You shrug
  1849. >He sighs and goes back to driving while you chill in the back
  1850. >Cadence wakes up just in tome for you all to pull up next to a store, the meeting place, and head inside
  1851. >She stretches with her hooves in front of her and rear upward
  1852. >Wew lad
  1853. >Seeing the other Anon, you instinctively wave
  1854. >He seems confused
  1855. >0 fucks given
  1856. >The store is entered however and your expression changes
  1857. >AWWWW SHIT BUGGA
  1858. >You start walking around looking at EVERYTHING
  1859. >Wait
  1860. >No way
  1861. >You run over to a rack
  1862. >There are human shirts in various sizes next to two sizes of pony shirts
  1863. >Aw yis
  1864. >Grabbing one of the shirts and another in what you assume is Anons size, you run back over to him
  1865. >The Cashier looks at you curiously as you float them along
  1866. >You grin up at Anon
  1867. >He looks at you, then the shirts
  1868. >“No”
  1869. “AWWWW COME ON”
  1870. >You sit down looking up at him, shirts floating in front of you both
  1871. >“No”
  1872. “Pleeeeeease”
  1873. >They ARE pretty corny, just Moab shirts
  1874. >But they MATCH and they’re built for ponies!
  1875. >You try putting on the tears
  1876. >You pout your lip
  1877. >He sighs and shakes his head
  1878. >“Fine”
  1879. >You gasp
  1880. “Yay! Thank you!”
  1881. >The Cashier looks at you both oddly
  1882. >Anon sit’s the various things on the counter as well as the shirts
  1883. >After paying you grab yours and his, floating them onto yourself and him
  1884. >Anon looks annoyed as he reunited with the other humans
  1885. >You’re grinning
  1886. >The other anon smirks at you and Anon as he speaks up “So, ya'll ready?  “
  1887. >You all nod
  1888. >“Alright.  So, from here, we will need to head over to an outfitters.  Ya'll will need to rent equipment.  Life vests at the very least, preferrably helmets.  This is a tame stretch of river, but still.”
  1889. >You sigh a little at the life vest, knowing the human ones are uncomfortable on a pony
  1890. >Oh well
  1891. >He continues “I'll cover the rental for the actual raft, and I am a certified guide, so this'll be a fairly cheap raft trip.”
  1892. >Incog speaks up.
  1893. >"Thank's anon, we appreciate it."
  1894. >Anon nods in affirmative.
  1895. >“Like I was discussing...  Anon, you are gonna have to leave your truck at at the Colrado River here in Moab. We can all stuff into my truck to drive upstream and put in the river.   Then, when we are done, us Anon's can take a trip back upstream in his truck to grab my truck.”
  1896. >He has his hands up awkwardly “Voiala.  No need to get a service to drop us off upstream, and we can enjoy a nice trip down the Colorado.”
  1897. >Maud speaks up.
  1898. >"What are we gonna do when we are done?"
  1899. >He pauses looking over you all “Whelp, we can always pay a visit to the brewery for some food, and to refill our now empty growlers... And eventually we'll have to get back to camp.”
  1900. >Cadence speaks up. "What exactly is at the brewery?"
  1901. >Maud responds. "They make beer there, and its a restaurant.  The stuff we drank last night from the jugs was made there."
  1902. >"Mmm...  That libation was quite pleasant."
  1903. >You look at Cadence, her regal speak felt weird and tasted strange
  1904. >You  jump in, feeling playful with your new found connection to Anons attire "Mmm, more of the same from last night?  Sweet!"
  1905. >“Well then, at the very least we can refill the beer.  There's other good places to eat. We could also get some fresh stuff to cook back at camp here in town as well.  Up to ya'll.”
  1906. >Incog adds in.
  1907. >"We have all afternoon to decide."
  1908. >Maud agrees. "Indeed.  We have many options."
  1909. “Alright then.  Anon, Ya'll follow me over to the outfitters, and we can get all our rental stuff together.”
  1910. >You, Anon, and Cadence all pile back up into the truck
  1911. >You sit firmly against Anon
  1912.  
  1913.  
  1914.  
  1915.  
  1916.  
  1917.  
  1918.  
  1919.  
  1920.  
  1921. >it’s a fairly quick drive
  1922. >Before you is a large garage, surrounded by vans with roof racks, large rubber rafts, bicycles, and other various outdoor equipment.
  1923. >The other Anon waves to the new human in a friendly manner “Ay, Jim my man.”
  1924. >The fellow working the desk looks up, and smiles. "Sup, Anon, how's it going?  What brings you into town?"
  1925. >He gives him a slightly coy smile “Oh, just a little vacation while the weather is still pleasant.  Looking to rent an 8 man raft.”
  1926. >Jim nods "What are you planning?"
  1927. >The two quickly go back and forth, you just kind of sit back listening with your crew
  1928. >“Eh, gonna take a few folks and ponies down the Colorado.  
  1929. Put in up near Dewey Bridge or Hittle Bottom, and have a nice relaxing trip down the river.”
  1930. >"Sounds good, bro.  You gonna need equipment too, I assume?"
  1931. >“Yeah, gonna need three sets of gear for humans, and four pony fitted sets.”
  1932. >"Huh...  Didn't see you as one to be dealing with the ponies so much."
  1933. >The other Anon puts on a thinking look upon his face, you taste some kind of emotion along the lines of surprise “Yeah, I hadn't planned much on it, but I got a pony who works as my field work partner.”
  1934. >"That's cool mang, I don't judge."
  1935. >You enter looking around, only to hear the other Anon
  1936. >“Here comes all the folks who are gonna be rafting with me.”
  1937. >You smile brightly and wave your hoof, swishing your mane from your eyes
  1938. >"Cool dude.  Shouldn't be too hard.  The only pony life vests we have for rent are like, one size fits all bro."
  1939. >Hearing this doesn‘t surprise you, seeing the bright orange saddles are also expected
  1940. >Thank goodness you can hide your wings under your carapace
  1941. “Yeah, that makes it easy enough.  What about helmets?”
  1942. >"Sorry, no pony helmets.  Got all the human fitted ones, dude."
  1943. >Well, shit
  1944. >The other Anon doesn’t seem too happy about it either “I guess that'll work.  I want a good type III vest for me atleast.  Everyone else...  Incog, and Anon here, can choose for themselves.”
  1945. >"Heyyy, another Anon in the world.  Neat.  I'm Jim, what kinda vest do you want today?  The type II's are cheaper to rent, but the type III's are waaay more comfortable."
  1946. >As expected, your Anon waves his hand and smiles "Yeah...  Gonna go with the cheap one."
  1947. >"Alright bro, that one's safer anyway.  How about you, Incog, was it?"
  1948. >"Yeah, gonna also go with the cheap one as well."
  1949. >Jim nods, as he goes to grab four pony vests, two of the cheaper, but safer life vests, and a nice comfortable one for you.
  1950. >Your Anon looks at the wall of helmets, then turns to the other Anon "So, how about helmets?"
  1951. >“Well...  Since this stretch ain't too bad, and we don't got 'em for the ponies...  Fuck it, vests only today, I guess.”
  1952. >"Yeah, bro.  Nothing above class II.  Easy peasy, man."
  1953. >Class 2? Wat
  1954. >The other Anon picks up one of the vests looking at it, he seems, possibly concerned. Which is good. “So uh...  the pony life vests.  Just kinda strap on?”
  1955. >"Yeah, pretty simple.  Keeps the pony floating even in rough water, with their head held upwards."
  1956. >Soon, everyone gets their vest, The other Anon loads everything up
  1957. >“So, Anon, your truck is gonna be left at the bottom of the trip, we all stuff into mine, and ride up to the top.”
  1958. >Your Anon nods “I guess that works."
  1959. >“I'll lead you to where we can get out of the river, then we can all jump over to this truck.”
  1960. >Annnnn everyones back into the trucks and on the road
  1961. >It takes your group to the far north side of Moab, and across the Colorado River.
  1962. >Just across the highway bridge,  Anon takes a  turn to the right, and down a nicely paved road, with a broad pedestrian path running alongside.
  1963. >After passing the pedestrian bridge across the Colorado, you all  come upon a large, muddy area with a ramp coming up from the river.
  1964. >Oh boy
  1965. >Mud
  1966. >Sarcasm intensifies
  1967. >You pull up, and pick a spot along the nearby cliff wall to park, and the other Anon pulls his truck up next to yours.
  1968. >Your body is so ready
  1969. >Almost in sync the two Anons get out and stretch
  1970. >The other Anon speaks up “Right, time to figure out how we ride up the river to where we put in.  You're allowed to ride in the bed of the truck here in Utah.  So, who wants where?”
  1971. >Incog speaks first. "Shotgun!"
  1972. >Other Anon replies swiftly “Alright then, you're up front.”
  1973. >Of course Cadence follows up quickly "I think I'd rather be in the cab."
  1974. >Then, yourself "Oooh, bed of the truck!  That sounds different.  Me and Anon want to ride in the back, right Anon?"
  1975. >Anon feels like he’s going to say something cheeky, of course you are not surprised “Whatever you want, bugbutt."
  1976. >Naturally
  1977. >Rainbow Dash follows. "Yeah, I think the back sounds pretty awesome."
  1978. >The other Anon turns to his pony  “Aright then, Maud, you gonna ride in the cab then, I take it?”
  1979. >"I guess so.  It's what I'm used to." She replies
  1980. >Everyone piles into the other truck, and once everyone is in place, he starts up, heading across some river you didn’t catch the name of
  1981. >Er, you thought he planned to cross it, driving parelell to the river, which also runs fown a high sided canyon, leads you to be slightly uncomfortable, yes the area reminds you much of the badlands and you like that
  1982. >The other Anon speaks up before anything can get boring however “Alright, everyone, spoiler alert.  To the left of us is the stretch of river we are gonna be going down.”
  1983. >Cadence peers over the edge, you and Anon also take a peek out of the bed of the truck
  1984. >Anon looks like he’s going to be sick
  1985. >Its not even THAT high up!
  1986. >Maybe he gets carsick?
  1987. >“Like I said before, it's gonna mostly be a pretty easy ride down the river.  None of the rapids are terribly harsh.” Other Anon continues to drive up the river “Oh yeah...  Generally, the only places you are gonna find the rapids is where another stream enters into the main river. All those extra boulders and shit getting dumped in is what makes the water rough.”
  1988. >You didn’t catch ANY of that
  1989. >Incog speaks. "Neat."
  1990. >Everyone else continues to look out the window at the barren red canyon.
  1991. >Mostly because, well, Rainbow Dash talks a lot. Weird considering she is rumored to be very VERY hateful towards changelings.
  1992. >“So, uhh, having fun traveling around, Cadence?”
  1993. "It's WAY  better than what I had been doing before, and I feel like I'm doing good in the world now with Anon."
  1994. >You pause thinking over your past.. adventure, and you havn’t helped a lot, but the ponies and Sisters you have helped makes you feel good. And the occasional outbursts from Anon are fun
  1995. "Even if he is a bit strange."
  1996. > Maud and Cadence begin a little more small talk.
  1997. >You can’t help but not care too much, you’re too busy focusing on Rainbow Dash’s emotions to make sure you don’t fuck up too much
  1998. >Of course the hive generally seems to agree you’re just over reacting and she isn’t a thread
  1999. >Half an hour later
  2000. >wow you made it alive!
  2001. >Before you is a gravel road and a large but mostly empty parking lot
  2002. >The other Anon seems to be thinking about something
  2003. >You hop out with a flutter of your wings, follow by RD and Anon
  2004. >Before you even make it out however there is one other note said by the Anon
  2005. >“Alright, ya'll.  Let's get out, and get ready for a day of fun in the sun, on the river.”
  2006. >Kay
  2007. >Let the fun begin
  2008. >You, as well as everyone else, jump from the truck and begin unloading
  2009. >good, equipment, food, the raft, and that other stuff that the Anon says you need
  2010. >Also the food
  2011. >Not that you need it but
  2012. >Humans know how to eat
  2013. >You stand next to Rainbow Dash, slightly uncomfortable, however she is almost infectious with this excitement and high energy
  2014. >You’re warming up to her
  2015. >You say with Anon, Maud, Dash, Incog and Cadence as Mauds Anon moves his truck
  2016. >Maud speaks up. "I think everyone is ready to go, Anon."
  2017. >Cadence decides to speak as well. "Yeah, all our stuff is in the raft, everyone has their life vest."
  2018. >At this point, you’re getting pretty hype to go. The water is.. unfamiliar and you’re starting to question that. But fun is to be had!
  2019. >Other Anon chimes in just as you slide on the vest “ 'Kay then.  Lets get the raft pushed a little more into the water.”
  2020. >You all give a slight push
  2021. >Except your Anon, he is watching like an asshole
  2022. >Such is life
  2023. >“Aight, ya'll get in, and I'll do the last shove.  Then we can get going.”
  2024. >you nod and turn to the other ponies, you all hop in at the same time
  2025. >Anon shoves the raft in with surprising strength, but in the process soaks himself
  2026. >You promptly giggle at this
  2027. >You watch the paddle as the Anon uses it to push the raft into position
  2028. >You feel slightly more apprehensive as you see the bottom of the river getting further away the deeper it gets
  2029. >Still excited though
  2030. “Alright lets get going!” You speak up, Keeping yoru hooves firmly against the bottom of the boat
  2031. >Cadence looks down at the water and you notice something the others seem to have been struggling with for a while
  2032. >Its kind of hot
  2033. Well, not so much for you, but still
  2034. >Rainbow Dash speaks up. "Can we get out of the boat?  This river looks pretty awesome."
  2035. >The Anon gives a small wave at her “If you want, you can get out and swim near the raft if ya'll want to.  I'll let you know before we get to anything rough, and you'll want to get back on the raft.”
  2036. >Naturally Dash takes this as a moment to show off, flaring her wings and jumping off the side of the boat "Cannonball!"
  2037. >You cover your face as the splash hits you, breaking on your horn and creating a little rainbow
  2038. >Neat
  2039. >Maud stands up, looking over the edge of the raft before jumping in herself.
  2040. >Her jump is significantly less exciting and, to say the least, the splash was even less impressive
  2041. >How did she do that
  2042. >It seems much warmer here than the mountains, for you, you’ve been comfortable this whole time though
  2043. >Cadence takes a moment to peer over the edge, you sense that she is apprehensive as well, obviously for a different reason
  2044. >chilly water
  2045. >Incog is just laying down, hands behind his head, relaxing as the boat gently rocks.
  2046. >Anon motions to see if you want to go in
  2047. >Glancing at him, then to the water, you debate your options here
  2048. >Everyone seems to be having fun, but the water is very murky and you can’t see shit
  2049.  >Noooooope
  2050. “Oh, I dunno…
  2051.  >Anon looks back at you, while keeping an eye on those in the water
  2052. >“Whys that Ling?”
  2053. >You sigh and look away from the edge
  2054. “I well,  I just..”
  2055. >It takes a moment to gather your thoughts
  2056. “In equestria, the waters are simple, we have normal fish and all that, the deadly stuff is kept to specific areas. I knew where to swim”
  2057. >Anon nods and looks down into the murky waters below
  2058. >“well I don’t think theres anything in here. I’m pretty good with that kind of stuff”
  2059. “But you humans keep introducing all kinds of crazy stuff into the wrong places. There could be a giant catfish waiting to gobble me up”
  2060. >You throw your hooves up for a proper display of your feelings
  2061. >Anon just chuckles
  2062. >“I doubt theres anything”
  2063. “And if there is?”
  2064. >“Fish are afraid of movment in the water”
  2065. “EXCEPT SHARKS!”
  2066. >“Sharks live in the ocean”
  2067. >You huff and cross your hooves
  2068. >you lean onto the edge of the raft
  2069. “I’m not going in”
  2070. >Anon shrugs and turns back to the front
  2071. >“Well if that’s what you want, okay”
  2072. >The other Anon is watching the area around you, your own Anon watching the ponies in the water
  2073. >You take in the scenery instead
  2074. >The clouds are very big on this planet
  2075. >and the mountains around you are vibrant as can be
  2076. >Ahead, you see a what you believe are the rapids
  2077. >the one back home look different, almost cartoony in comparison
  2078. >The new Anon friend speaks up “Alright, everyone.  Time to get back into the raft.  We got some rapids coming up.”
  2079. >You taste disappointment
  2080. >You expect nothing less, especially as Rainbow Dash speaks up
  2081. >"Aww, Anon do we have to?"
  2082. >“Yeah, Rainbow.  The water gets more shallow, and there's gonna be boulders  you wont easily be able to see.  Don't want no one to get hurt out here.”
  2083. >The ponies all scramble up onto the raft, a few mumbles and groans
  2084. >You watch as the Anon puts his helmet on, you fumble with yours, unlike the other unicorns, as a changeling, you have a curved horn
  2085. >You point your horn at the hole and give a good shove
  2086. >You feel your horn pushing on the barrier
  2087. >FUCK
  2088. “ANON IT WONT FIT”
  2089. >Cadence waves her hoof dismissively as she easily slides her horn into said horn hole, then glances towards Anon
  2090. >“pfft, that’s what he said. No, Seriously, you should see him at full mast”
  2091. >You stare, Anon gulps and looks away not wanting to be involved
  2092. >You can TASTE the smugness from the pink bitch!
  2093. “WAIT YOU”VE SEEN HIM NAKED?”
  2094. >“And hard” Cadence retorts
  2095. >You gasp out and give the hardest glare you can
  2096. >Anon rolls his eyes but grins, Cadence gives a big grin, the boat grins
  2097. >“what, why’re you all grinning”
  2098. >You huff and look at the helmet
  2099. >Maud helps you by facing it the correct way and helping slide it onto your head
  2100. “Oh, wrong hole”
  2101. >She keeps her normal facial expression as she gives a friendly slap on the top of the helmet
  2102. >Interestingly enough she is laughing
  2103. >Internally that is
  2104. >Your head feels funny
  2105. >probably nothing
  2106. >The other Anon interrupts the grins and slapping “Alright, everyone.  Grab your oars and try to split yourselves evenly between the sides so we can have better control over the boat.”
  2107. >Everyone moves around into their positions
  2108. >On the left side, the other Anon, Cadence, and yourself.
  2109. >On the right, Incog, Maud, and Rainbow Dash.
  2110. >Oh yeah incogs here, he’s pretty quiet
  2111. >You like him
  2112. >“Alright.  When call out 'odd', Anon, Cadence and Ling row harder.  When I call 'even' Incog, Maud, and Rainbow, you row harder.”
  2113. >Cadence pipes up with a question. "What all are you going to do back there, Anon?"
  2114. >The Anon seems rather happy to answer “Good question, since all of ya'll are kinda new to this.  I'm gonna use my oar to steer the boat like a rudder, and also switch between sides to help us when necessary, Any other questions before we hit this first set of rapids?”
  2115. >Maud speaks up next "How much control are we going to really need for these rapids?"
  2116. >“Honestly, not too much.  Shouldn't be anything day ruining to hit while we are all in the raft.” he chuckles immediately afterwards “We could easily just let the raft roll through it with me ruddering, but hey.  We gotta have the proper experience for ya'll.”
  2117. >You feel shifting under you
  2118. >IT BEGINS
  2119. >CLENCH YOUR ANUS
  2120. >its not that rough but it spooked you!
  2121. >Anon and Cadence laugh at the first bump as you give a light nervous laugh
  2122. >Oh look more people
  2123. >You decide to ask a silly question seeing others just now getting into the water near by
  2124. "Was that it?  Just a little bit of shaking?"
  2125. > “Nah, that was just a warm  up.” Anon replies
  2126. >lovely
  2127. >He points forward downstream, you see a bit more stuff
  2128. >“Up there is the first more proper rapids.  So, once we pass those, we'll have more swimming and chilling time.”
  2129. >Oh, cool
  2130. >everybody does their little bits of talk, you relax a little more
  2131. >A few more boats have joined in the drifting down the river, though none are too  close.
  2132. >no ponies..that’s..depressing that they couldn’t even let their slaves have any fun
  2133. >in font of you, more rapids approach, this time you’re ready and less spooked
  2134. >“Alright, hang onto your butts.  Here it comes, everyone.”
  2135. >OH GOD YOU HAVE NO HANDS HOW CAN YOU GRAB A BUTT
  2136. >Its tempting to ask anon to help
  2137. >Too late, the water starts shaking the raft pretty hard, below you, you see white rapids are considered white waters
  2138. >kinda pretty if it wasn’t terrifying
  2139. >Rainbow Dash lets out a whoop of joy. "This is more like it!"
  2140. >You expect nothing else from the Pegasus
  2141. >Incog, looking a little more worried, speaks up. "Having fun, huh Dash?"
  2142. >"Just imagine how much fun those ones behind the Kum & Go are!  They are much bigger than this!"
  2143. >heh, kum & go
  2144. >Maud is Maud, but you can tell shes having fun. That’s always nice
  2145. >Cadence is grinning madly but fairly quiet
  2146. >A little water is on her mane, making the paint run
  2147. >lovely
  2148. >in contrast, your butt hole is firmly clenched
  2149. >Anon looks like he’s about to begin laughing and hug you up
  2150. >Everythings, for the most part, lots of fun! You‘re nervous but that’s okay. While others swim you dip your hooves into the water and everything
  2151. >This is a good day indeed
  2152. >You even get a hug from Anon. A snack if you will.
  2153. >You see as the area narrows and the other Anon seems to be scheming again
  2154. >Theres a pretty nice sandbar across from some kind of really swanky looking building
  2155. >“Alright folks, lets get back into the boat real quick, so we can push over to that sand bar over there.  It's lunch time!”
  2156. >AWWW YIS FOOD TIME
  2157. >Hugs from Anon and some really dank ass sandwiches
