  1. >The acrid air stung your nose and if you weren't already bald you would have had your hair singed by these searing temperatures.
  2. >You let out a weary sigh as you look around.
  3. >Fire raged and burnt the ground in front of you, the air thick with a smoky soot and there was naught but horrifying landscapes lining you vision.
  4. >Quite a surprise when if you were to turn around you would see peaceful meadows and sunny skies naught but a few moments away from the hell before you.
  5. >You hadn't had this job for very long in fact you had only started a few days ago when you met this nice mare that you THOUGHT you could trust.
  6. >How were you supposed to know that she was evil? From her devil horns and tail?
  7. >Now that you think about it.
  8. >Yeah, you probably should have suspected something when she asked for you to sign with your soul.
  9. >Opening the door with a jingle you head back around to your desk.
  10. >You rap your fingers against the desk awaiting the next demon to inevitably fail at getting into Equestria.
  11. >A mare carefully trots up to the counter, unlike most other demons to enter your checkpoint you can tell beneath her bolster and bluster is a shy timidity hidden away.
  12. >Her mane flames a vicious red, as though her mane were still smouldering from the remnants of a fire and her coat was a silky ashen white, flecks of darker ash still coating her in a thin lining.
  13. >She quickly brushes them away as she enters attempting to look nonchalant while doing it but clearly flinches in pain as she singes her the frog of her hoof.
  14. >Putting on your best customer service face, you force a smile and go to greet the mare.
  15. >"ARRR quite the looker aren't you landlubber?" her husky rough voice hardly matched her words and you frown.
  16. "Good evening Ethereal." you say barely hiding the frustration in your voice.
  17. >"E-Ethereal? W-who's that?"
  18. >You swear if she didn't literally own your soul you would just up and leave already.
  19. "Alright, I'll play along. Who are you this time?"
  20. >Her eyes light up with a hidden joy as she begins to ramble about her newest character.
  21. >"So I'm a famous pirate Etyrian and I roamed the seas in search for the greatest treasure of all. Love. It wasn't until after many hard fought battles with my nemesis Captain Ahonimus that I finally captured him and just as I was about to strike through his heart, I couldn't manage to. Instead I asked for his hoof in marriage and we sailed the seas together until our tragic last battle against the Celestian fleet."
  22. >You merely go along with it, idly flipping through paperwork that you had to sign.
  23. >Looking up from your papers you see the mares sparkling crimson eyes staring up at you, full of hope and joy.
  24. "Don't you always talk about MY 'coltish whimsy'?" you say allowing only a slight bit of cheek into your otherwise deadpan expression.
  25. >She stomps her cute little hoovies against the floor and scrunches her snout.
  26. >"This is different! This ISN'T whismy! This is- This is- Creative expression!"
  27. >Right. Right.
  28. >You raise your hands in a defensive manner and sigh.
  29. "Alright, it's creative expression, hell it could be Celestia herself as long as I get this paperwork done." you say as you circle another doodle of a mare and a stallion getting it on covering the IMPORTANT document.
  30. >Don't these mares have anything better to do then doodle vaginas all over their immigration papers.
  31. >This only forces another sigh from you and you cradle your head in your hands.
  32. >You can hear the soft clopping of hooves as 'Etyrian' rounds the counter and comes up beside you.
  33. >"Hey Anon."
  34. >You haven't tried just ignoring her yet have you?
  35. >"Hey... Anon."
  36. >Oh wait you have. Many. Many. Times.
  37. >"Anon... Hey."
  38. >She begins poking you with her hoof still trying to gain your attention.
  39. >"Haynon"
  40. "Ethereal."
  41. >"You want to go out some time?"
  42. >Inhaling deeply you count for a few seconds before exhaling.
  43. "Do I have a choice?"
  44. >The mare puts a hoof to her chin in mock thought and then quickly smiles.
  45. >"No."
  46. "What about all this paper work then? What am I going to do with it?"
  47. >"Oh you colts worry too much about the small things. Here I know what to do, just leave it to your boss." she says as she points her horn towards the wall and a raging wall of fire replaces it.
  48. >She bites onto the papers and throws it into the flame and it quickly burns to ash, the smoke covering the ceiling of the room causing the two of you to cough violently.
  49. >Quickly the two of you rush out of the building and into the sweltering heat of Hell as you attempt to catch your breath you see the building itself go up into flames.
  50. >At this point you don't even bother to say anything all you do is breathe a deep sigh and look down at the mare disappointingly.
  51. >"I-I don't think this place is up to work health and safety standards?" she asks more as a question then as a joke but still a small smile creeps onto your face.
  52.  
  53. >Since Ethereal burnt down your office and you weren't exactly able to work in a smouldering pile of ashes, you were dragged along by on VERY happy pirate queen.
  54. >"I have just the thing for today! Ok so hear me out-"
  55. "Does it involve the cacophony of screams again?" you say cutting her off and she quickly pouts.
  56. >"You colts just can't appreciate good music. And no it doesn't!"
  57. >You look down at her big red eyes and can't help but feel a twinge of affection for this small demon pone.
  58. >Even after she put you through LITERAL pony hell.
  59. "Fine, what's your fantastic idea Ethereal?"
  60. >She bounces around for a moment with joy, her smile beaming.
  61. >"Okokokokok. So you know that big lava pit that we own?"
  62. "That you own." you go to correct her.
  63. >"Well, I was thinking if things go as planned..." she mumbles the rest so that it is almost inaudible but you can just barely hear it. "You'd get a ring on your spider hoof then you'd own it too."
  64. >You smirk and pretend not to have heard the mare.
  65. "What was that last part dear? I'm afraid my age is getting to me already." you say putting on an old man's voice.
  66. >She snaps back out of her imagination and a blush sets her face aflame.
  67. >"Wha-What do you mean I didn't say anything! No I've never even spoken in my life." she says and then performs what you can only describe as interpretative dance.
  68. "Alright, alright. Just tell me about the thing you have planned for today."
  69. >Her dancing stops and she rushes back over to you grabbing your arm in her magic and placing it on her withers.
  70. >"So I've made a few adjustments to it, you won't even be able to recognise it when you see it! Come on it's just around this flame geyser."
  71. >She excitedly trots ahead of you and drags you along while a few succuponies look on in amusement and slight jealousy.
  72. >When you've finally stopped being drug away by this tiny mare, you pat down your coat of its soot stains and looked up to what Ethereal had made.
  73. >A beautiful scenic ocean filled the crater which had once held the volcanic lava and it sparkled with such beauty that you were transfixed.
  74. "It's beautiful Ethereal. Just beautiful." you say stumbling to find the words.
  75. >"Well Momma always did say the way to a colt's heart is through shiny things. Well she also said it was just to distract them from your horrible personality flaws but I don't think that counts here."
  76. >Slowly you inch towards the glistening water, the reflections of the flames and ashes cast upon the waves.
  77. "What did you have to do to get this down here?" You ask still watching the sheer contrast of the two elements.
  78. >For a moment there is no response and you have to pull your eyes away from the oceans face to look at the mare.
  79. >She seems to be sweating and unable to meet your gaze.
  80. "Ethereal."
  81. >"Look, I may or may not have had to freeze hell for a moment. But it was worth it right? I mean now we can roleplay for real this time!" she says quickly.
  82. >Another sigh comes from you as you shake your head.
  83. "What am I going to do with you Ethereal?"
  84. >"Oh, I know you can let me cuddle and snuggle you! M-Maybe even call me your sweetheart while I do it?" she softly clops her hooves together and you can't help yourself but lean down and give her a small peck on the cheek.
  85. >Her blush comes back in a furious red and she seems to be momentarily stunned.
  86. >"I-I-I uh?"
  87. >You smile and rustle her mane then take a seat on the raw red rock.
  88. "C'mere you little devil." you say while pulling her into your arms and for a moment she fusses and resists.
  89. >"Hey! I'm the one who's supposed to be cuddling you! Imagine if somepony came past us doing this, it would send my reputation as a marely mare down the drain!"
  90. >Instead of complying with her request you continue to softly pet her smouldering mane until she settles down.
  91. "This is your punishment Ethereal, you'll just have to think about all that paperwork you burnt while you're in timeout."
  92. >She pouts but doesn't say anything more instead opting to get comfortable.
  93. >The two of you sit there for a while just enjoying the glistening sea, Ethereal's soft breathing and the gentle splashing of waves against the newly created shoreline slowly sending you to sleep.
  94.  
  95. >You wake up to the sound of crackling flames and bubbling spouts of lava.
  96. >Groggily you open your eyes and look down to see Ethereal still quite comfortable in your arms.
  97. "Hey sleepy head, it's time to wake up." you coo softy as her eyes begun to flutter open.
  98. >When she finally does open her eyes she jolts into a sitting position as she sees your face above hers and almost headbutts you.
  99. >"Wha-What are you doing in my bed Anon! Oh no did I get drunk and miss the big moment? Does it even count if I-"
  100. >You look around to see the ocean has faded away leaving the original lake of molten in its place.
  101. "Unless you sleep outside, I don't think this is your bedroom Ethereal." you say a bit of a grumble in your voice.
  102. >She follows your gaze and suddenly realises where the two of you are.
  103. >"O-Oh. I suppose not."
  104. >Slowly you raise her out of your lap and place her on the ground beside you.
  105. >The feint flicker of ash and soot in the air causes you to cough and you slowly attempt to stand up.
  106. "Come on, we- I mean I should get back to working." you say patting down your suit once more.
  107. >Ethereal pouts but doesn't say anything to contradict you slowly shuffling behind you.
  108. >As the two of you begin walking Ethereal's stomach begins to let out a low grumble.
  109. >"Heh do you want to grab something to eat before we head back into the office? You know I can't work on an empty stomach." she says ending with a nervous laugh.
  110. "When DO you ever work? Empty stomach or no?"
  111. >"Hey! I work! I work alot... It's just. You just wouldn't understand the importance of my work because you're a stallion!" she says pouting.
  112. >You roll your eyes and let out a little chuckle.
  113. "Come on then boss mare, lets go grab a bite at my house."
  114. >Her pout dissipates as soon as you said that and was replaced with a large smile.
  115. >"Ooooh It's been a while since I've seen your house. Do you still have that nice couch?"
  116. "Ethereal. You burnt it last time you came around."
  117. >She stops for a moment and brings her hoof to her chin, trying to remember.
  118. >"Oh yeah. Well I'm sure you'll use your coltish sense of style to find a better couch anyway!" she says with a slight nervousness to her voice.
  119. >A large set of buildings lie amidst the large piles of ash and flame and you recognise it as home.
  120. "Remember try not to burn anything. Please." you say causing Ethereal to laugh and place one of her hooves on her heart.
  121. >"Mare's honor!"
  122. "I'm serious Ethereal. You know I don't like you paying for my things to begin with, even if you did break them."
  123. >"You stallions and your 'stallionism' can't you just let a mare buy you some nice things every once and a while?" She says as she scrunches her snoot.
  124. >Creaking open the door you shake your head at the mare's antics and push your way inside.
  125. "Come on then, I'll get the kettle started."
  126. >She trots herself in and sits down on the couch, trying to find a comfortable position as you head towards the kitchen.
  127. "Do you still like your tea with two sugars Ethy?" you say as you hear a shocked gasp come from the lounge room and the quick trotting of hooves follows it.
  128. >When you go to turn to check on the mare you are greeted with a flash of white and before you can react you have a new addition to your attire.
  129. >You can barely hear Ethereal as her speech is faster then anything you could ever comprehend.
  130. "Slow down Ethereal." you say while gently attempting to pry her from your suit.
  131. >"Imjustsoexcited! YoucalledmeEthyandEthyisashortversionofEtherealandit'slikea-"
  132. >When you finally manage to get her off of you without her taking any skin along with her you breathe a heavy sigh and try to get level with her.
  133. "Ok. Ethereal, you need to speak S l o w e r."
  134. >She takes a few deep breathes and attempts to speak again.
  135. >"I heard that couples have nicknames for each other and I'm just so happy that you've come up with mine! Soon we'll get married and h-have kids and and-" her ashen coat turning a furious blush as she continues.
  136. >You softly place a finger on her lips as she begins to talk herself into a frenzy.
  137. "Look, we're not that far down the line yet. Hell it wasn't even that long ago that you literally stole my soul."
  138. >"Bargained for." she deftly interrupts you.
  139. "Point is, these things come slowly Ethereal. So let's take it step by step and not rush into anything ok?"
  140. >She lets out a small grumble but mostly doesn't complain just trotting over to the small pony sized dining chair and taking a seat.
  141. "And no you can't use your mother's mind control spells, we're going to have to do it the old fashioned way." you say with a small smirk.
  142. >"B-But I wasn't going- Not even just a little one?"
  143. >Oh. You hadn't been serious about that.
  144. "No Ethereal. Don't you worry yourself about it, if it works out it works out. Now about that tea?"
  145. >"Three sugars please." she says softly.
  146. >You turn the kettle on and go to grab the daffodils that you keep just in case of visitors.
  147. >Although you hadn't had many aside from Ethereal herself it was always a wise decision to have them in stock.
  148. >Deftly you bring out the 'X-TRA WEET' bread from the cupboard and slap the ingredients together, handing the finished product to Ethereal.
  149. >As she nibbles into the sandwich she lets out a pleased sigh and nods.
  150. >"Momma always said colt's are good at making sandwiches but this is delicious."
  151. >You amble over and take a seat opposite to her, the larger chair dwarfing hers in size.
  152. "I'm glad you liked it. The tea won't be but a few more moments, have you had Ashen Herb tea before?"
  153. >She thinks for a moment but soon after she shakes her head.
  154. >"I don't think so Non."
  155. >Non?
  156. >You raise an eyebrow in response and she nervously taps her hooves together.
  157. >"W-Well I was thinking if I've got a nickname it's not fair if you don't too y'know?" she says her voice filled with nervousness causing you to smile.
  158. "I like it Ethy, thanks for coming up with it."
  159. >In response she lets loose a cute squeal and clops her hooves together, her large smile and big red eyes melting your heart quicker then any flame in this hellscape.
  160.  
  161. >The shrill sound of the kettle boiling breaks the moment and you cough nervously attempting to regain your composure.
  162. "Right, so like I was saying the Ashen Herb tea is, ironically, quite a rarity down in the hells. I'm actually quite surprised you haven't tried it before yourself."
  163. >She leans back in her chair and fumbles with a pair of newly found sunglasses.
  164. >"I-I'm more of a hard cider type of mare haha." She stutters out with a nervous laugh.
  165. >You struggle so valiantly to keep the smile from your face and yet your resolve falters.
  166. >Ethereal pouts, her sunglasses finally put on and tries to keep her marely fa├žade up.
  167. >"Hey!"
  168. "I believe you Ethy don't worry." you say as you barely suppress another chuckle.
  169. >Her horn lights up and two bottles appear in a flash of light.
  170. >Oh no. Not again, last time she pulled out the bottles she was passed out within the first few glasses.
  171. "Look, you really don-"
  172. >She looks at you with a smug look in her eyes and holds up the rather fruity colored looking bottle.
  173. >"Come on, I even got you a colty drink. Juuusstt fooor yyoouuu!" her voice lined with a playful mockery.
  174. "Ethy we have to wor-"
  175. >"Work shmerk. C'mon I'm your boss and I say we have the day off."
  176. >You breathe deeply and then bring massage your temples.
  177. >This pony would be the death of you one day.
  178. >But today you had a drinking challenge to win.
  179. >Opening the cupboard you brought out two small glasses.
  180. "Let's get this over and done with then 'eh?"
  181. >She nods and you slide one of the glasses her way.
  182. >The glass is slowly filled to the brim with liquid so strong that you can smell it from the other side of the table.
  183. "That's some powerful stuff, you sure you can handle it?"
  184. >Ethereal gives a confident nod but her eyes quiver with nervousness.
  185. >"D-Do you want to make a bet for who will win?" she asks her bolster not reaching her voice.
  186. >Why not? What's the worst that you could bet for?
  187. "Sure sure Ethy, what do you want if you win? I'll tell you now I don't have much else to lose."
  188. >Moments pass by as she thinks, her brow furrowed until finally she perks up.
  189. >"I-if I win you have to move in with me! T-that way we can go to work together and- and you can make me breakfast in the mornings and-"
  190. >This mare man.
  191. "Ethereal. What did I say before, about taking it slow?"
  192. >She pouts and tries to play your heartstrings.
  193. >And unfortunately it works.
  194. >I mean she never wins anyway so what's the harm in it?
  195. "Fine. But if I win you have to do a whole days work, no shortcuts." she groans but quickly recovers.
  196. >"Alright! Let's do this." while you pour yourself a drink of the harder cider the mare pauses. "L-Look I know you're not the average colt but are you sure you can handle that stuff? It's from the my mother's private reserves."
  197. >You let out a hearty laugh and shake your head.
  198. "It doesn't change much aside from letting me know that your mother has good taste in drinks."
  199. >As you fill your cup it seems to bubble and brew under the surface of the liquid with a cruel intent.
  200. >Almost makes you want to dump the contents into the sink but you brave on, these lands haven't turned you into a colty fru fru stallion yet.
  201. >"3,2,1." she counts down as she levitates the glass and downs the contents.
  202. >You follow suit and the noxious fluid stings on the way down, tasting of poison and paint thinner causing you to let out a viscous cough.
  203. >Ethereal barely manages to keep her drink down as well but she keeps a steely determination in her eyes.
  204. >The thick lining of alcohol burnt your throat leaving a painful searing brimstone behind.
  205. "Wooo. That really is some hard stuff." you say as you grab the bottle once more, spinning it around to read the label.
  206. >The black label was covered with a fine gold print and read 'Stallion's Scorn'.
  207. >As you read it you could hardly suppress a chuckle before you poured another full glass.
  208. >You admit, you may have spilled a little bit.
  209. >Alot.
  210. >But in all fairness the way the world kept spinning wasn't very helpful.
  211. >As you look over to the other side of the table you can see that Ethereal was in the same boat gently swaying with an imaginary breeze however her eyes were still lined with a brazen gaze.
  212. >"Yo-you bout ready to give up yet?" Ethereal says with a staggering voice causing you to laugh even during the harsh spin of the world.
  213. "Not be-before you!" you say as you attempt to down another drink and the same heated volcanic sensation roll down your throat.
  214. >Ethereal follows suit and makes a disgusted face presumably because of the vicious liquid that tipped her tongue.
  215. >The worlds spinning had begun to come to ahead and you nearly stumble to the floor.
  216. >Strangely enough the mare opposite you seemed to reach a state of alcoholic Zen and almost as though she were meditating she sat still her eyes closed while you fell out of your chair.
  217. >You REALLY shouldn't have drank that much.
  218. >As your vision slowly creeps into darkness you feel the night's toil coming back up and your floor is coated with a sickly vomit.
  219.  
  220. >You finally awaken, your fitful slumber interrupted by a piercing headache and a parched throat.
  221. >Letting out a pained groan you try to open your eyes and remember why you feel like utter shit.
  222. >As you do you slowly start to feel a warm fuzziness cushioning your head.
  223. >The last few things you remember is drinking some STRONG alchohol and betting a cute pony for something.
  224. >Your eyes flicker open a few times and you can see a sea of ashen grey, the warm fur tickling your face.
  225. >A feint sensation on your hair can be felt even through the deathly sickness that you find yourself in.
  226. >"I hope he doesn't wake up soon, this is so nice." you hear a feint voice somewhere in your vicinity.
  227. >You attempt to raise your head and quickly the ashen fields fade away replaced with soft silken red sheet.
  228. "Wha-"
  229. >Rasing your head you find youself in an unfamiliar room, the walls covered in strange decorations and a small fireplace that wasn't in your room last time you checked.
  230. >Spinning your head back around almost causes you to throw up but you hold it back and settle the spinning world once more.
  231. >Ethereal is sitting beside you on the silken bed with a guilty look about her.
  232. >"Pleasedon'tcalltheponiceonmeNon.WeweredrinkingandItook-" she starts to ramble but the sharp pain in your head forces you to cut her off with a quick wave of the hand.
  233. "Slower. And quieter please."
  234. >"Don't call the ponice please Non. I swear I didn't do anything we were drinking and I thought, hey I won the bet so I'll just take you back to my place and care for you there!"
  235. >You furrow your brow and frown.
  236. "First off, this is hell. You don't have ponice here. Second off why should I be calling the ponice anyway, well aside from you just kidnapping me from my home but I'll let that slide."
  237. >She goes to speak again but you cut her off once more.
  238. "Nevermind, can you just get me a glass of water please. We'll talk about this in a bit." you say as you gently lower yourself back onto the bed.
