Story continued in the next post...
Emerald tells Ruby that he has to go for now, and asks if there is a way that they can meet up again some time.
"Oh! Sure! Hmm... I suppose we can uh..." Ruby says looking around, "Oh! Let's just meet by the fountain here tomorrow. Maybe sometime mid-day?"
Emerald agrees, and they both say their goodbyes.
Emerald returns back to Joyride's with a strange mixture of nervousness and excitement. He isn't sure why he feels this way, but it's the way he feels. He brings a trembling hoof to the door of #304 Coursewalk, and a few seconds later Joyride swings the door open.
"Hey there lil' perv! Good timing! I was just thinking about trying to go and find you. Come on in, let's get you ready!"
Emerald walks in and asks what she means, and she replies,
"Well, I'm gonna doll you up a bit again. Don't worry if you find these clothes a little embarrassing. After all, it's not like you'll be wearing them long!" Joyride says with a grin.
You know I was about to autistically say "let's bring Ruby along on emerald's journey with Joy", but then I saw this post, and decided I hate Joy too much to let Ruby be exposed to her
Joyride puts Emerald into some high heels, as well as a very tight, very short dress. She also puts a bit of lipstick on, but seems to decide not to do the blush and the eyeliner like she did before.
"There, you look nice and slutty now. Go over into the next room, I'll have our guests here in a second." Joyride says, pointing to a door on the other side of the room.
Emerald asks if she has anything to help him along with this. He doesn't want to get injured or anything.
"Hey, don't worry lil' perv. I'll be there watching remember? If anything looks like it's going wrong I'll stop the whole thing, alright?"
Emerald feels a little bit better about that, he supposes. Emerald asks if he can keep the bow. He kind of likes it.
Joyride snorts and says, "Yeah, sure, whatever lil' perv."
Joyride pushes him into the room, "Well, go get comfortable! I'll be back in a second!~"
As the door closes Emerald yells that she better have the best damn ice cream she can get him for after this!
Emerald hears another snort of laughter as the door shuts.
Welp, guess it's just time to wait... Not much he can do here he guesses.
It's the same room where Joyride took him and Sensoria. Still completely red from the walls, to the bed and single chair. There is the door he came in, as well as another door near the bed.
What does Emerald do?
look around for some anal lube
>three horny zebras rip off our tight skirt to find a buttplug in our puckered ponut
Emerald stretches a little bit, trying to get himself as limber as possible. He isn't sure what's in store for him, but he can't help feeling that it'll be...
A bit out of nerves, he starts to wander over to the door he didn't come from and opens it to find... Toys. Sexual toys.
At least he thinks they are sexual toys. He can't even recognize or conceive what some of them are supposed to be.
Emerald does find a plug and wonders if maybe he should warm up a bit before the zebras arrive... It might make things go a bit faster and -
Emerald suddenly hears voices, and throwing the plug back he rushes to the bed and does his best to relax and look comfortable, even attempting a pose to look sexier.
The door opens a few seconds later, and Joyride as well as the three zebras from the pictures appear.
"That's him?" The dockworker one says, "Wow she... I mean he looks just like-"
"Yes, he is the perfect one to worship my cock." The diplomat says cutting in.
"Wow, really sir?" The alchemist says, coming in, "Though I will also admit he is quite nice looking."
Joyride comes in last slamming the door behind her and then rushes over to the chair and sits expectantly saying, "Alright boys, get up in that butt! I ain't got all day!"
As they strip, Emerald can't help at look at their manlier parts. Emerald isn't sure if that's how they all are or if Joyride picked zebras with particularly large specimens but...
"My name is Adetokunbo." The dockworker says, breaking Emerald out of his reverie. he suddenly realizes he is blushing quite a bit, "But I prefer Bo if you-"
"No need to introduce yourself to someone so underneath you." The diplomat says sharply to Bo.
"I was just trying to be nice." the dockworker retorts.
The diplomat just snorts.
The three then approach...
I think I like the less revealing version better
>thread is fucking chaos while deciding what relationships main character should work on
>civil discussion over which horse cock he should suck first
never change /mlp/
Emerald begins to please the zebras, perhaps a little less so with the Diplomat.
Emerald would have preferred to get them off with just his hooves and mouth, but if someone was going to go to his back first, he at least likes that it is the Dock worker first. Somehow he feels like he'll be the most gentle.
That first image is just awesome.
Thanks, I hope you don't mind all the art, I don't wanna seem like i'm trying to steal your thunder or anything.
Heh, that's just antagonizing them now. But let's not turn this into a us vs. them thing.
Shake your flanks for him a bit. Y-you only wanna make sure they pay you well.
We take it out right in the shower of the Guard's locker room, right before getting gangbanged again.
>Heh, that's just antagonizing them now.
I would say "I'm obviously trying to be funny in a stupid way", but that's a lost art on 4chan. Prone to ">just pretending to be retarded" by people who don't get the joke.
Imagine if someone actually thought that'd work.
Some other time perhaps, that took me just as long as it did for Fic to make two updates.
To be fair though, it's substantially harder to do over the internet, especially when there is no facial/ body cues, or tone of voice to read.
Well /ss/ fags went full REEEEEEEEEE last thread to the point that they tried to say that this was rape like this was Tumblr. A little bantz from the homofags is deserved I think
It's more of a comparison of a relatively fresh community to an older community. The more a community ages they tend to get more cynical and more no fun allowed as the cumulative negative experiences start to build and overtake their memories of the positive ones. You can even see shorter versions of this with new generals.
If you're used to people taking something seriously, that's what you'll expect to see even when it's not there.
There's not enough of the foalcon master race.
Thank you. Just wanted to show my appreciation for all the entertainment Fic has given us.
I know this might be counter productive, and it very well could backfire, but maybe we could try to be a bit nice to the jerk too?
That could either, make him come out of his shell, or unfortunately, reinforce his bad attitude. It might be worth a try.
Or this is a quick fuck too, so maybe it wouldn't be worth it, idk. Wouldn't hurt to try?
I personally think it's a good rule of thumb to not take everything at face value, unless they point blank let people know they are serious.
It just causes too much stress otherwise.
I'm surprised anyone would pay a lot of money for something like this. You'd think they could just find an orphan or other poor foal like Ruby running around on the streets and pay them a relatively modest sum to have their way with them. Sure Emerald is cute but that usually isn't most people's priority when looking to fuck a whore.
Well Joy obviously convinced them it'd be worth it. But that does raise an interesting question of how she did so.
It was probably a "safer" option. Or Joy just convinced them it was.
Naw the heart eyes are for the guy in the back. He's nice.
...Only for the cash...ehhh...one dick is one thing but three big ones...yeah you kinda have to like dick at a bit for that. Maybe you're not dating dudes but you like the dick.
Is it just me or has emerald not finished once...
Looks like mr. zebra supremacy wasn't up to the task. But maybe emerald just finished off camera.
Im tempted to call him out on it.
Hey, it looks like someone uploaded a bunch of colt quest onto Derpibooru. It's cool that someone did that. Perhaps this will bring in even more players. =)
Him and the Alchemist might be good. Dock worker could help us get on a boat, Alchemist can give us some tips/recipes.
More importantly both of them can fuck us to satisfy our neverending lust for semen. It's a win/win situation.
(Last for the night!)
After an hour, quite a few orgasms from the zebras, several from himself, and swallowing and receiving lot's of cum, Emerald collapses upon the bed soon followed by the three zebra.
"Damn... I've never came that many times in... In a week much less one day!" Bo says, astonishment in his voice.
"Yes, when the zebras get our way we shall make sure to make good use of both the females and the males, I think." The diplomat says in Zebra. Emerald is glad he did his best to blast that jerk with his seed. He deserves it.
"Ugh, could you stop it with the zebra supremacy stuff for a little?" Bo says in the pony language with a sigh.
"Could you both shut up? I'm trying to enjoy the afterglow here." The alchemist says, also in Zebra.
A few minutes later they all get up and leave, Bo being the only one to wish Emerald a goodbye on the way out.
Emerald just lies there, staring up at the ceiling. Emerald has to admit to himself that it wasn't so bad... But he is feeling a bit of a mixture of shame and pleasure at being covered in spunk.
"How goes it lil' perv? Sore?" Joyride says, appearing above Emerald.
Emerald jumps. He forgot she was there. Emerald says that he is a little, yeah. Both in his muscles and... Well other places.
"Well, time to get you cleaned up and get you some ice cream! We can get some regular ice for your butt too, if you'd like. Come on." Joyride says, walking to the door and opening it for him.
Emerald asks if she has a towel he can use or something.
"The bathroom is just one key away, c'mon!" Joyride says, motioning towards the door, "I kinda want some ice cream too!"
What does Emerald do?
>mfw this entire sequence
Yes let's wash the shame off.
Ice cream and our pay would be great.
>It's funny Joy, you said listening to the voices in the necklace would be bad but that seemed nice
The alchemist wasn't an ass, but only Bo was nice. I'd rather not meet any of them again but if we must then just Bo.
Like I said I don't mind some gay stuff now and then, but having this entire thread be devoted to it felt like a bit much. It's also a bit odd that we see Emerald enjoying it so much since he's claimed he's not gay. Don't misunderstand, I'm not upset, just a bit confused.
He already got fucked by futa filly Joyride, and then let the farm colt who was totally-not-gay fuck him, and came from it. He's not the straightest Colt out there to say the least.
This, except maybe less blatant.
Perhaps talking about how at first he wasn't interested in doing it at all, but then he starting becoming interested and then suddenly desired it.
Subtle clues to being the amulet without saying the amulet told me.
One wonders exactly what our cut is. If we get less than half the money I'll have some words for Joy.
This is the first time he's enjoyed it without being coerced by circumstance.
And he JUST claimed to not only not be gay, but also not be aroused by naked stallions with Ruby.
If he was bi, why did he claim that?
Or, why did the QM let us say that?
Either way the necklace is talking. IMO it should be the necklace telling him to do gay stuff. Because that's more amusing to me.
Yeah, because then it ceases to make sense in another way. 7 updates in a row in a 350 update quest is 'a bit much' for some reason. A whole thread (22 updates usually) would be on the extreme side, 7 updates is minor at best.
Didn't like the zebra thing either, but bi doesn't equal gay.
Most likely, he's a bi-curious hetero, or something like that (predominantly straight, but just a tad gay). Gay pornstars are usually like that, anyways.
Compare it to the other lewd sections though.
It felt longer than any other.
Plausible, but I still think that having the necklace making him do gay stuff is a more interesting narrative
The lewd sections have been 4, 3, 1, 2, 2, 4, and 5 in length. The two previous 4s were with females.
Each of them gain 1-3 more if you include the setup.
So this was tied for the longest lewd session at five unambiguously lewd posts.
Equal to the last, which was with Hope and had been built up for most of the quest. Hell it was basically our short term goal since we left Hope.
While this was just random prostitution.
Seems a bit out of nowhere and a bit much.
Meh, maybe but I think it might just be his actions in general. I mean come on the kid was a coward at first maybe still is a bit. But we got him to confront a succubus, and lie to a dragon's face. also it would be a tad bit boring if it was only "the amulet makes me cock hungry"
Normal colts dont that stuff either. So I dont think its just gay stuff.
Also if he was really super against it I think a will check would have happened like other times. Unless QM quit that stuff.
As for this being so long...QM was being a fucking tease with those zebra jokes it was bound to happen.
Because she likes big zebra dick anon.
Like the QM.Who do you think was in the room with her last time.
If you can't understand nuance or context, then you're right, there's no use discussing anything with you.
Obviously it's not JUST the amulet. But I think it would be more interesting to make Joy conflicted. If she gets Emerald to do gay stuff then she 'wins' but also is letting the amulet win. See that angle?
We may even consider that jerk zebra diplomat. Perhaps we could win him over (or blackmail.) he could serve as a useful tool against our step parents. He does have connections after all.
I'm not saying don't make conflicts like that. I just think it would be boring if buttsex was the only bad/good conflict about it.
Like if without it he was also a completely useless wuss. Sure he might have a brain but if you can't use it it in a important moment because you're afraid it's pointless. I just don't think he would have the courage to do all the stuff he did on his own. Come up with it yeah, put to action no.
I'm not disagreeing with you i'm just saying add more to it then that.
Anyone else notice how in each progressive post in the OP where Emerald is with Joyride, there is a darkening void the more Joy is around? It's usually gone with Hope.
Subtle sign of Joy's influence?
I figured becoming wizard supreme and killing our parents was our long term plan.
Ya know given all the attack magic we've been learning. Or did you mean a shorter long term.
Speaking of magic, ask joy if she finished making our focus yet.
Not the back up dildo one the the bland but functional book one.
So how much did Emerald make for whoring himself out?
Also, I'd really like to look into if the diplomat has a young zebra daughter. It'd be really hot to sex her up when we find our way out west.
Imagine Emerald's impreg fetish enacted in the diplomat's daughter's womb.
Would be a fun side quest.
If that was true, and Emerald was aware of that, he might walk around with an erection 24/7. Because in between being a naughty little cock tease he can't resist busting in mares now that his ring is off.
I like to think he's really stressed because has put up with a lot of bullshit at his high-pressure job. His supremacist fetish is just a way of taking control of his life and blowing off some steam.
Mmm. Cock challenges get me hard. Undefeated IRL thus far. Your cockiness only makes it sweeter.
Forget about dry orgasms. I just want to see if it'd fit in your cute zebra ass without needing to take "stretching breaks".
I'm sure that wasn't supposed to be a pun, but
Emerald hops off the bed and follows Joyride. He says it's funny that Joyride said the voices were bad, because they told him to have the foursome, but that was okay.
Joyride stops and whips her head around glares at Emerald for a second.
"Ah, well I guess they aren't all bad then." Joyride says deadpan, before continuing on her walk.
Emerald asks if Joyride will stop with the zebra jokes now.
"Jokes? I wasn't joking. Wasn't zebra dick awesome? Don't lie now, I was watching you the whole time!" Joyride says, turning to Emerald again, shocked.
Emerald says it was fine.
"Fine? Look, zebra dicks may not be the biggest dicks you can find, but they are one of the biggest you can get while still having the flexibility to do a number of different things! Look, so-" Joyride starts on a rant about the joy of zebra dicks, and Emerald just let's her prattle on. It's not something he particularly feels like arguing about.
This continue until they get out the door and then back into a huge washroom. The walls are red tiled and lined with shower heads, and in the back there is a huge, square bath in the back.
Joyride grabs some towels and washing supplies from a nearby cupboard and gives some to Emerald. She tells him to wash up and then hop in the bath. Emerald does so, feeling much better without all the cum on him. He gives a sigh as he lowers himself into the tub. It's hot, almost too hot, but it somehow makes it more relaxing. Emerald says he's never seen a bathroom like this.
"Yeah, we don't have them around here. This is based on a design I saw in a country way, way to the east." Joyride says, fumbling in her mantle, "Also, here ya go! You've earned it lil' perv!"
She produces a bulging sack of coin as well as a huge tub of some fancy looking mint chocolate chip ice cream and a spoon.
Emerald tries a bite. It's pretty damn good.
What does Emerald do?
>Joyride stops and whips her head around glares at Emerald for a second.
>"Ah, well I guess they aren't all bad then." Joyride says deadpan, before continuing on her walk.
Now i wonder how much we can break the fourth wall wothout making Joyride think Emerald is insane
How was she keeping it cold?
Has Joy made any progress on our book focus?
And not to pry, Joy, but what exactly was your cut from the foursome deal? I just want to make sure Emerald is getting at least half of what they paid.
Well shit I guess the jig is up.
Emerald tell joyride we said hi and were your collective consciousness, or the whispers of mad mares or perhaps a bunch of weird guardian spirits trapped in a gem.
We don't really know ourselves we get too busy arguing to figure it out. Call us anon.
...please don't kill me.
Well we wouldn't feel the need to explain ourselves if someone hadn't stupidly exposed us in the first place. But now it's a plot thing so may as well get it over with. There's bound to be questions from the ponies.
Emerald asks how much he made.
"Altogether? About 1.2k. I managed to get quite a number of bits from that diplomat, heh." Joyride says smiling, "Your cut is 600."
Emerald asks if ghosts exist.
"Huh? Of course they do."
Emerald stares at the unicorn for a second, and then Emerald starts to chow down on the ice cream, and Joyride says,
"Hey, slow down there. You already got a belly full of semen, don't make yourself sick by eating too much before bed. Because I'm not going to be the one cleaning it up."
Emerald shrugs, and puts the tub next to him on the bath. He turns to Joyride and asks how she kept it cold in her mantle.
"With my cold, black heart." Joyride says with a grin, "But seriously, I have a pocket dimension I can put non-living things that essentially freezes them in time. Put something cold in, it comes out cold."
Emerald asks what the deal is with his pendant.
"I don't know exactly." Joyride says flicking the water with her hooves, "But I'll find out."
Emerald asks about the focuses.
"Jeez, curious tonight aren't you? I'm working on it still. It should be done tomorrow late or the next day early." She says casually.
Emerald asks if it's possible that someone else could come along with them.
"Maybe. Depends on who it is. Why? You thinkin' Sensoria? She has a duty to this city, and I think it might cause trouble if she came, lil' perv." Joyride says with a yawn.
That's not who he was thinking of exactly...
"Oh? Do tell?" Joyride says, leaning close and grinning.
What does Emerald do?
>don't make yourself sick by eating too much before bed
>implying that isn't future Emerald's problem
Anyway, tell Joyride that this is a nice bathroom, but has she ever thought of upgrading? A rubber duck and a few toy boats would really rocket it to the next level.
Emerald tells the story in brief. He says she is a filly named Ruby who he met today. She seemed really cool and she didn't really seem to have a real home or connections to this city, and it might be fun to have her around.
"Well, I'm quite surprised Emerald. Here I thought you weren't going to trust anyone so easy because of your wanted poster, and here you are making friends. Still, be careful, ya know?" Joyride says, splashing bath water at him.
He sputters the water out of his mouth and asks again if Ruby could come along maybe.
"Hmm... Tell you what, invite her over for dinner tomorrow and we'll see." Joyride says, and then grinning again continues, "You'll have to make it worth my while though, I don't really like babysitting very much you know."
Emerald grimaces at that, and changing the subject asks about the zebras he was just with.
"Ah, well there was Adetokunbo. he works down at the docks among... Other places! Then there is Jaheem, the diplomat. A bit of a crazy guy but he is powerful both here and in his home country. Then there is Olamilekan. He is a lot like Sensoria actually, except where Sensoria wants to be around people and is awkward, Ol' Olam hates people and is awkward." Joyride says, and for good measure splashing Emerald again.
Emerald splashes back, and then they get into a little water fight before settling down and enjoying the water again. Maybe it's about time for bed...
What does Emerald do?
He gets good enough at alchemy and the like and he can become a pony tailed badass.
Ask if we're going to end up doing magic dueling sparing matches once, we're able to cast spells.
How dos a magic fight even work or is it a straight forward run and hope you don't get hit type of thing?
After that time for bed.
Start out as trappy wimp, become trappy badass. I'm all for this.
how about you lurk more so you can figure out that on your own, newfag
NU! I want to lick her fuckin belly! Fuck the potion! we passed it up last time because we thought "she was casting magic". I refuse to pass this one chance up again for some bullshit potion that may not give us this opportunity again!
and I really want a reason to draw family
Calm down nigga, i am also really into Joy but we need to be patient, she isn't going to feel pleasure and we are just going to make a fool of ourselves, be patient and the reward is going to be even better
Just do it, don't let your fetishes be fetishes
Yeah, if you try to fuck her hard. Sometimes that's just not right to do man. Sometimes you got to make some love, and fuckin give her some smooches too. Sometimes you got to squeeze. Sometimes you got to say please bruh. Sometimes you have to say "Hey Joy. I'm gonna fuck you softly. I'm gonna screw you gently. I'm gonna hump you sweetly. I'm gonna bone you discreetly!" You know?
(Errand time, bbl.)
Emerald asks what Olam knows about Alchemy, and if he could learn from him.
"Oh, I'm sure he'd show you stuff. You know, for a little bit more of the in-and-out." Joyride says raising and lowering her eyebrows, "He's one of the master practitioners actually. Not too many people are sure why he is here of all places. Not even myself!"
Emerald nods, and then looking at the spacious bath asks if she has any pool toys or rubber duckies or anything to play with.
"No, but I should totally get some huh?" Joyride says with a laugh.
Emerald asks if she wants to play Marco Polo. She agrees, and Emerald closes his eyes and attempts to catch Joyride as she swims around the pool. Emerald thinks that she swims incredibly quietly, as she seems to be in one place and then suddenly appear in another. He suddenly realizes that she is teleporting, and manages to get her to agree to not use magic.
After tiring himself doing that Emerald goes back to his room and falls graciously asleep.
It's the next morning. Emerald's muscles are still sore from all the activity yesterday, as is another part of him. But enough about that...
What does Emerald do?
Mail Sensoria. Have a bit of dialogue with her. Remind Joy when you see her at breakfast that she owes you a date with her before leaving out on am adventure.
Sensoria is outstanding at unicorn magic. Learning form her would be more beneficial than from the zebra because she sold teach us based around the idea of our focus whole the zebras only use alchemy.
Emerald checks his sheets to see if they are clean. Luckily, they seem to be, so he heads over to the library to get some studying done.
While reading, he comes across some spells he thinks he will try when he gets his focus. All it requires is a feather and a few stones.
>Emerald learns the spell "Levitate Small Rocks!"
It doesn't sound particularly impressive, but he figures he'll have to start small and work his way up. Maybe he'll ask Joyride for some other ideas for beginner spells. After a few hours Emerald stands up and stretches. "Mid-day" is a little vague, but he wonders if Ruby is waiting or not. Perhaps he has time for another book?
What does Emerald do?
Ruby isn't gonna be waifu.
She's too much of a rogue. Don't forget that Emerald is technically a Prince. If he ever does get a waifu, it should be one worthy of the position who wouldn't take advantage of him.
uraah so hard to pick..books or friends.
Meh, just invite her over for dinner first and then read at home. Or bring a book with us so we have something to read if we have to wait for her.
We can show off our cool magic to her when we get the focus.
I want more offspring. Emerald has only cum inside one mare. She might not even keep it.
It's a numbers game. We should at least make up the difference in number of times Emerald could have got off yet had the ring on, including off as well.
My count is we are 9 mares behind.
We should ask Joy if anyone is interested in pimping out their wife/looking to get cucked by an Earth pony and knock their spouse up.
>not going full fire emblem and earning your waifu outside the throne room based on your personality and skills like any other male
>Not wishing to dress your rouge waifu in beautiful clothes and expensive jewels
>not wishing to sleep safe, knowing she loves you for who you are and not for your fortune
Also she doesn't know our real identity yet, even if Hope is still the definitive endgame we can always keep people we can trust close
Well shit, now i can't stop imagining a Fire Emblem ish scenario where a older, prince Emerald calls for all the friends he met during his travels to assist him on the field of battle, ultimately defeating his parents and claiming the throne
Sorry for the autism
Emerald asks how much they know about the Jewel family, and if there are any other kingdoms who would harbor him.
"They are pretty powerful. The Jewel family has great facilities for digging up and shaping gemstones."
They work with Hope's family, and are a major contributor to the war effort. That's all we know.
Honestly, Em's prolly not even nobility. Just a rich person's kid, or someone with rich adopted parents, since his actual parents are probably dead.
Emerald decides to do both, sort of. He grabs one of the non-spellbook goat magic books he has, one about the history of goat magic, and takes it with him to the fountain.
Emerald gets close to the fountain, and even through the crowd he can tell that Ruby isn't there yet. Good! He didn't miss her. Emerald decides to sit at the fountain, so he can see her coming.
He sits down on the rim of the fountain and pulls out his book, but just as he does he hears a slosh of the water and turns around.
Ruby is squatting down in the fountain, pawing at the water.
Emerald glances around to see if anyone is around, but they are all to busy with their business to care. Emerald asks what she is doing.
"Oh hey! Did you know people toss bits in this fountain? I mean look at all of this! Why waste perfectly good money that way?"
Emerald says that they use it for wishes, and that she should get out of there before a guard sees her.
"What? How is losing money going to help you achieve your dreams? I don't understand people sometimes! But yeah, I know I'm not supposed to be in here... A guard saw me already. Why do you think I'm almost sitting in this fountain! Just keep an eye out for me, I'll be out really quick."
Emerald nervously looks around to make sure no one is approaching. And even then he's a little fearful of a guard, for some reason he finds the whole thing a bit hilarious.
Ruby hops out of the fountain after a minute or two and says, "Alright, done! Oh yeah! I saw your face on a poster. Man, I know you told me your step parents were trying to find you, but they want you back badly huh?"
Emerald nods sadly. Ruby puts a hoof on his shoulder.
"Hey, don't sweat it. Look, you are new to town right? Anything you wanted to do? Wanted to see? My treat!" She says, holding up the soggy coins. Emerald chuckles to himself a little.
What does Emerald do?
So our disguise once again fails? Or what, did we get a newer wanted poster out or something?
I'd be a bit cautious with that new knowledge Ruby divulged to us. Though with being that forthright, it does lend some credence to her not backstabbing us, emphasis on some.
You did a good, Drawfag. Thank you.
Oh? Then why did we do it in the first place if it is sooo bad?
Tell her we had a long night because we've been whoring ourselves out. We're a bit sleepy but will treat her to some fun. On us.
Emerald boops Ruby on the nose. Ruby slaps his hoof out of the way.
"Agh, why do you keep doing that? Is that your way of greeting people?" Ruby says, raising her hoof and booping him on the nose back. For some reason this makes him blush.
Emerald says that the wanted posters are the reason he is dressing up like a filly. He doesn't want to be recognized.
"Yeah, I mean I see that now! Don't worry, I wouldn't have recognized you if I hadn't spent all of yesterday walkin' 'round with you. I think you'll be fine."
Emerald asks if Ruby ever thought of leaving town.
"Eh..." She says, scratching the back of her head, "Sure, I mean it's something I dream about, but it's not like it'll ever happen. You need money to go on adventures and stuff. Something I'll never probably really have, ya know?"
Emerald explains about how he'll be leaving soon on adventure and he wants her to come along. But if she wants to come she'll have to come over for a dinner with Joyride. Emerald explains that Joyride is his Mistress, and a powerful mage. Emerald doesn't want to say more than that though. He's afraid of scaring her off.
"Yeah! That'd be great! I mean..." Ruby says looking around, "Anything's gotta be better than this, ya know?"
Emerald smiles, and then getting back on topic asks her where the most fun places in Whitherwater are.
"Hmm... Well there are some nice parks and stuff in the richer districts... Up north there is nice little stream near the docks where I like to go throw rocks some time. Oh! There are the puppet shows! I know where you can climb up on the walls and watch them for free! Damn, I wish there were some festivals going on or something, those are always fun!" Ruby says happily.
What does Emerald do?
(Last for the night.)
Emerald says he'd like to see the puppet show.
"Great! It's this way!" the filly says, motioning with her hoof.
After a very short walk they come across an old, wood building. There isn't as much artifice on this building as there were on the others, but it's been well kept with fresh paint. It looks like it was once perhaps an inn or an orphanage. However the sign above the double doors now reads "Whitherwater Eastside Community Center".
Ruby leads Emerald to the side of the building where there is a sizable brick wall with an arch containing barred garden doors and a sign for the times of the puppet show.
Ruby walk up and pokes her head through the bars and says, "Hmm, I wonder if there is a show going on right now..."
Emerald looks at the sign near the door for the times, and says that there is going to be one in about half an hour.
Ruby removes her head from the door with some trouble and looks to Emerald astonished and says, "Whoa! You can read? Teach me to do that sometime!"
Emerald smiles, and then he hears a voice from behind him.
"Oh, hello dearies! Can I help you with anything?" An elderly mare says, walking up to them.
"Uh, no, we were just-" Ruby starts, but Emerald interrupts her and says that they'd like two tickets for the show, and holds out some bits.
A second later they are let through the door, and Emerald turns to see a slightly fuming Ruby.
"I-I told you we could have watched it for free! Jeez, you should have at least let me pay!" Ruby says with a huff.
Emerald says it's fine, and she really shouldn't worry about it.
They approach and find, nice, flat stones laid close to one of the walls of the community center, in which is set the stage. The puppet stage has clearly had a lot of care put into it. Carved and painted wood panels are set into the sides, and the closed curtain is a nice, clean, bright red.
Still some time before it starts. What does Emerald do?
Emerald gets erections around Ruby. Constantly.
He has a need stronger than food, water, security, all failing to compare to the almighty urge to spurt as many ropes possible into Ruby and other in estrus mares.
You should lurk anyway lad, there is a reason why lurking is the golden rule of 4chan, its because you can't be spoonfeed when it comes to the community, it doesn't matter how many tabs with meme websites you may have opened, it doesn't matter if you use KYM or ED to cheat and know what that hot meme of the moment means, when it comes to the community you can only learn by experiencing it, this is why even today you can still spot newfags even with those websites being a thing, because those people don't fucking lurk and they end up saying and doing stupid shit
Everybody here was a newfag at some point, some still are, but we all bothered to lurk before posting, and lurking isn't just applied to newfags, but to any situation where you're not familiar with the culture of a community, its important to understand how it works so you don't end up doing dumb shit without realizing, and site etiquette is one of the things you learn on your own, i've been here for years but every time i visit a different board or general i am not familiar with i end up lurking for at least 2 weeks before even posting anything
>But why are people so defensive over this?
Because elitism, people come here to discuss their hobbies and things they enjoy, and the last thing they want is some retard from the outside who doesn't respect their traditions and rules, elitism is what makes 4chan what it is, and without it this place would just become a regular forum, you're actually lucky this board isn't as defensive as, for example, /a/, or else you could have gotten yourself banned or worst
So please, just lurk and be patient, i know its hard but we all have to go through this at some point
>we all bothered to lurk before posting
Heh.. yeah. We sure did.
Actually I never lurked. I just jumped right in and started posting and never once got called newfag. Luckily some of my online mannerisms lined up with this board's. I hated emoticons and roleplayish words like buck and everypony. I'm not a pony and neither are you, stop that crap. Plus, I'm old enough that I used to dabble on forum communities back in the day so maybe I learned to not say stupid shit there. I dunno.
>public use property
Ever hear of the tragedy of the commons?
That's what we're preventing via elitism.
/mlp/ itself is a bit different than the other boards. If you know 4chan's general culture you don't really need to lurk here.
I was thinking about the story so far and I think there may be an opportunity we may have overlooked. The Zebras are currently at war, yes? A war that Emerald's family is involved with. Well, we just had sex with that jerk diplomat so perhaps there might be a way that the diplomat could be useful in our revenge. The only problem is how...
Anyway what do you guys think?
While waiting for the puppet show, think about that Zebra diplomat from last night. While a jerk, his people are at war with our step parents. Perhaps he could be useful in our revenge.
Thank you, cpt. obvious.
I'm not sure how much they'll have info on, but I certainly don't want to ally with them.
I'd rather look for pony allies, but its not like we have a lot of options, so long as we don't help the zebra war effort.
Emerald and Ruby find a nice area to sit near the front. He glances around. There are two exits from this area. The one they came in, and one a bit more to the north through another ornate garden gate. He doesn't know why, but Emerald feels safer knowing he could probably escape if he needed too.
Eventually more kids and their parents start trickling in, and when the thirty minutes before the show is up there is a respectable crowd talking and waiting expectantly.
The show starts, and Emerald must admit he enjoys it greatly. He'd never seen a puppet show before, but he had read about them in his parent's library. Ruby seems to like it as well.
"I've never been this close before! I can actually tell which puppet is supposed to be who!" Ruby says, leaning over and whispering to Emerald.
It seems that the puppet show is actually made up of several plays put together.
The first one is a folk story about how the pony got it's tail, involving a trickster pony named Jester Jinx. He insults a god by pretending his backside was his front, and the god ends up punishing all of pony kind for that discretion.
The next is also about Jester Jinx, who wanted to visit two feasts at two separate towns at once. He ties two ropes to himself and hands them to a villager in each town, telling him to tug on it when their feast is ready. Unfortunately for the trickster both towns start the feast at the same time, causing them to strangle the poor pony. He ends up alive, but passed out, and ends up missing both feasts.
"Alright children!" The same old mare Emerald bought his tickets from says, walking in front of the stage as the curtain closes and the clapping dies down, "We will have a small break before the final play. It's a little longer than the first two, so make sure to use the bathroom if you need, and we have some water and fruit on the table if you'd like it!"
"Ooo, free food!" Ruby says.
What does Emerald do?
Just get some food.
Nah, we can hold it. But if we do need to use the restroom we should follow through with our disguise.
Good thing we only have jews here then.
What are you talking about, just make sure the tip of your dick just pointing into the toilet and cover it with your hands.
Besides this is a outdoor play right? I'm sure they have a outhouse or something right so it's probably a one person at at a time thing. So no one could see us.
Emerald hops over to the table, and the pair eat some of the food that is laid out, Ruby taking perhaps a bit more than her fair share.
Emerald comments that this is almost like a date.
"Is it? Never been on one." She says, still snacking.
Emerald can't say the same thing, realizing that he was with Sensoria, but it's a lot like the ones he's read about.
Emerald says he is going to go use the toilet, and on the way realizes that to keep his disguise up he'll have to use the women's restroom. He enters a bit nervously, but really the room isn't any different from a guy's restroom, just with more stalls and no urinals.
A few seconds later Emerald sits back down next to Ruby and it isn't long before the play begins once again.
"The story of Tack and Nail!" A puppeteers voice says.
Two colt puppets plop onto the stage, and the puppets begin to mime walking. A second later a wood cut out of a house appears, behind which appears to be another puppet who seems to be baking.
"Isn't that the house of Mrs. Bottoms?" Says Tack to Nail.
"Indeed it is! And she appears to be baking a cake!" Says Nail to Tack, "How about we play a little trick?"
"And so the boy's played a cruel trick on Mrs. Bottoms. While the kind lady was gathering her ingredients, Tack and Nail took some soap and replaced it with the flour." The narrator says, as the two puppets appear to "enter" the house and then exit quickly, "Once her cake was finished, Mrs. Bottoms could not help but to want to try it, and was met with a disgusting surprise!"
"Tack and Nail laughed at their misdeed, but Mrs. Bottoms heard and yelled at the boys as they ran, " The narrator continues as the puppets mime laughter and then appear to run away, "Do not misbehave children, or Ol' Cloaky will take you away!"

At 500 posts the thread stops getting bumped and it starts falling down the pages. Once it passes page 10 it's archived and we can no longer reply. It doesn't matter any more or less. Threads and posts aren't eternal on 4chan.
That link is some fat pastel pony ass by the way.
Replies are nice, but i'm not too worried about em.
"Next, the boys passed by Scrivener Sam's office, and glancing in they saw him hard at work on his ledgers." The narrator says as another plank of wood house appears with a puppet behind it.
"Isn't that the house of Scrivener Sam?"
"Why it is! Shall we play another prank?"
The two puppets are moved "inside" the house. The narrator says, "And so while Sam wasn't looking, they tied a piece of string from his quill o the bottle of ink, so when he lifted it the ink would spill everywhere!"
The two puppets "run" outside the house, and the scrivener puppet pokes his head out the window.
"Do not misbehave children, or Ol' Cloaky will take you away!" The narrator reads, "But the children did not listen, and instead went on their way."
A windmill is dropped in front of the colt puppets this time, and the narrator says, "The boys then passed by the Barley Oats, the miller's place."
"Isn't that the house of the Miller?"
"Why it is! Shall we play another prank?"
As the puppets "enter" the windmill, but this time there is actually an inside background for it. The puppets make their way to some bags painted on the background, and then to some barrels on the other side. The puppeteer speaks over them saying, "And so they slashed the bottom of the Miller's sacks, so when he lifted them all the grain would pour out onto the floor. Wanting to see the look on the poor Miller's face, they hid behind some barrels."
The miller puppet comes in, and the narrator says, "And the Miller pulled and pulled on the sacks until the emptied completely on the floor, but as the children laughed at his misfortune the miller suddenly flew out them with the bags."
The miller puppet actually opens, revealing something akin to some fabric on a string, but the effect is great.
"It was Ol' Cloaky, and scooping them into the bags, he flew off with them still kicking and creaming, and they were never seen again. So remember children, don't misbehave! The End."
What does Emerald do?
Last update had em blue, I figured it was part of his "Sapphire" look.
Thanks, and possibly tommorow, no promises.
I'll try to keep that in mind next time, but i'm lazy and like "stylizing" it.
For the record he was blue for one sequence, he's green again like normal now.
>He wishes he was still blue colored though.
Just search Fluttershy pics for reference, the shape is wrong since Emerald usually has that scared/insecure look on his face (just like Fluttershy), also drawn slightly bigger pupils (if possible, also experiment with eye sizes, colts and fillies usually have bigger heads with bigger eyes) to reflect his personality
I have a couple of pictures in mind, but one of em is gonna have his "sapphire" look still. But i'll make him "emerald" mode later.
I'll keep that in mind, thanks.
I'll also keep that in mind.
It would be frightening to him if he wasn't a serial rape victem that has had encounters with dragons and succubi.
Emerald is a bit jaded now and figures Ol' Cloaky will just gonna rape the boys raw.
As the show finishes, think about that Zebra diplomat from last night. While a jerk, his people are at war with our step parents. Perhaps he could be useful in making our step parents go away like those bad children.
Not a while ago people mentioned the main characters being named after jewels, which of course are also the names of pokemon games, if Emerald was a pokemon trainer, which mons would he use?
Emerald claps, and then turns to Ruby and asks her if she liked the show.
"Yeah it was great! Um..." She says, "Um... Ol' Cloaky isn't a real thing is it...? There isn't someone who just... takes away ponies who've been bad is there?"
Emerald says of course there isn't, but for some reason he can't keep the fear down that maybe such a thing exists. he's certainly seen some weird stuff in the last two weeks.
Both of them give nervous bouts of laughter, and Emerald says that they should probably be getting back to Joyride's place for dinner.
As they walk Emerald realizes that there probably isn't such a thing as Ol' Cloaky. After all, if something like that existed certainly his parents would have been taken away, and the zebra diplomat as well... Unless they are doing good? Emerald certainly hopes not. Somehow this makes him feel a lot better though.
Emerald notices that Ruby is staying pretty close to him, and she appears to be looking down every dark alley and wary of every pony on the street. Ruby catches Emerald's eye adn straightens up.
"So err... I don't uh need to dress up or anything do I? You haven't really told me what kind of person this Joyride is. Am I going to have to watch my manners? Because I've been told many times that I don't have any.
What does Emerald do?
Tell Ruby to just be herself and joy will probably like her more than us. Just be ready for a lot of hit or miss dirty jokes.
She's a big perv. In fact thats our nickname for her.
Joy is, weird...
She's kinda perverted, so she's probably gonna make some sexual jokes or something. Actually they might not be jokes...
But one thing she doesn't care about is manners.
