Story continued in the next post...
In response to her joke, Emerald tells Joyride that she can joke all she wants, but it'll never fill the void in heart, or in her vagina.
Ruby seems quite surprised by this attack, but Joyride just laughs and says,
"About time you started to dish it out! Or maybe you are just trying to impress your lady friend here?"
Joyride then walks over with some rice and some sort of spicy, aromatic sauce of some kind. The two foals eat, and Emerald has to admit that he quite enjoys it. It's nothing like anything he's eaten before.
The happy look is on Ruby's face as well, and she says, "Whoa! What is this? It's really good!"
"It's called curry." Joyride says, sitting down and eating some herself, "It's from a faraway kingdom, and it's rather hard to obtain around here, so make sure to enjoy it!"
Ruby certainly does, and she cleans her plate before Emerald and Joyride get halfway through theirs.
"So lil' perv here tells me you want to join us on our little adventure here. Did he tell you what we were doing?" Joyride says, waving a curry filled spoon in the filly's direction.
"Nope." Ruby says, leaning back and patting her satiated stomach.
"We're collecting ingredients for a potion that'll let me orgasm. Do you know what that means?" Joyride says.
"Uh... No?" Ruby says, thinking on it a second.
"Well, maybe I can show you sometime." Joyride says with a wink, "I need to know what kind of skills you can bring to the table. There are no free rides with me, and Emerald will back me up on this." Joyride says, pointing to Emerald now.
"Skills? Err..." Ruby says, looking imploringly to the colt.
What does Emerald do?
>What does Emerald do?
go down on ruby before joyride gets a chance.
or just bend ruby over the table and rut her, after you finish eating of course. don't want to waste all that delicious curry now do we.
Lets see. Run her through the basic skills Ruby has.
She's good at evading guards, an experienced pick-pocket, good at infiltration, has basically run a house for a while, and is rather physically gifted as well.
Explain to Ruby that our skill is that we're really good at dealing with people.
For example we were kidnaped by a guy once and we tricked him using our silver tongue to get free and we're learning magic.
In Ruby's skill in this case I guess that would be ...slight of hand for lack of a better word...fuck it shes good at stealing that's what she dos.
Emerald explains that she is smart and resourceful, as her ability to grow up on the streets has shown. Also she is good at getting around guards and can cook!
Ruby blushes as you say all this, and Joyride grins her usual smile and says, "Oh? I'm sure you are overplaying it. She's a bit young to be able to do all that well."
"Yeah, you would know, being super old, wouldn't you?" Ruby says, crossing her front hooves.
"Age has it's benefits." Joyride says with a nod.
"How old are you?"
"You wouldn't believe me if I told you."
Ruby, annoyed, says, "You could say 1000 and I'd still say it was too young."
Joyride rolls her eyes, and says, "You are more fun to pick on than lil' perv here. Maybe I should take you along!"
What does Emerald do?
Anyone using emoticons is a newfag. I'd rather a 4channer sabotage the whole thing than let some faggot from derpibooru try to "fix it."
We were doing fine without you fucks.
Tell the mares that they shouldn't fight for our amusement.
Ask Ruby if she wanted some reading lessons. We're good at that!
Put your hoof on your face because Ruby has taken the bait.
Give them only one warning that you will not hesitate to point and laugh in their faces as they pointlessly bitch at each other.
Continue to eat curry.
I'm sorry you hate the popularity of this Quest and those outside of 4chan that want to join in the fun. It's sadly this kind of attitude that will hurt this board in the long run.
>It's sadly this kind of attitude that will hurt this board in the long run
Sure it will.
inb4 taking the bait
I don't want to derail the thread so I'm not going to go any further, but no. You're very wrong.
/co/ tried the open air style and look what happened to them. Their culture died and they went full tumblr. I don't hate popularity or really anyone new. I do get annoyed by newfags who don't seem to get that they're newfags. When you're a newfag you lurk until you understand the culture and etiquette. Then you can post.
I don't want to stop anyone from "joining in" but they have to actually "join in" first.
I've been to tumblr, dA, reddit. I've seen what popularity does to shit. It turns it into bland, hugboxy bullshit.
Give me four posters with actual things to say (and the eight shitposters who come along with them) rather than 400 moe kawaii desufags.
>It's sadly this kind of attitude that will hurt this board in the long run.
That's the general 4chan attitude. And 4chan is more popular than ever.
Anon, we just need to be culturally enriched like Europe is right now.
holy shit ruby looks like a NIGGER, I expected her to be red.
doesn't mean she isn't still qt though
watched and eat that fuckin good curry. Only break it up if it gets serious.
>Follow quest exclusively through CYOA
>Story is live!
You are now reading everything Ruby says in her voice
That's fine if you feel that way. It's just from my experience when groups circle the wagons and treat newcomers with hostility those groups tend to shrivel up and eventually die.
That actually just belies a lack of understanding of how the website functions. Circling the wagons only works if you can actually tell who anyone is. They treat the appearance of newness, and stupidity, with hostility, not newcomers themselves. Which means anyone that appears merges with the site culture faster as they get tired of being called out on looking new.
Because anyone can merge with the site culture as fast as they want, there's no bar to feel like you're a 'part of the group' other than not acting like a faggot. Which is why 4chan continues to grow.
We treat newcomers fine if they integrate. Otherwise they can fuck right off. That's how it's been for as long as I remember.
But enough of this, let's actually get back to the quest.
Emerald just keeps eating his curry. He wants to see where this goes.
"So you don't have any family or anyone who would miss you if you were gone?" Joyride asks Ruby directly.
"Nope. I don't care two bits about the people I live with. Not that I hate them, but I won't miss'em. And my parents... They are dead." Ruby says, giving Joyride a look of defiance.
"Fair enough." Joyride responds.
Emerald takes this opportunity to mention the earring that looks a lot like his pendant, and asks Joyride what she thinks about it.
"Hmm... that is a bit interesting actually..." Joyride says, looking at the filly's ear, "Who did you say your parents were?"
"Oh um... I dunno..." Ruby says, looking down at her plate embarassed, "They were always just 'mom' and 'dad' to me..."
Emerald feels a pang for this. He never really knew what either his father or mother's name was either, and he proceeds to also look down at his plate depressed.
"Well that's no help." Joyride says without tact, leaning back in her chair, "Anyway, say I was to let you come along... What would you give me in return?"
"It's not like I have anything. Err, I got a few bits I fished out of the fountain today." Ruby says.
"Well it doesn't necessarily have to bits you know~!" Joyride says, leaning back forward, "Just ask lil' perv here!"
Ruby looks to Emerald with a questioning and curious look.
What does Emerald do?
Joyride is being a major sketchy scumbag here. Like a pedophile introducing sex to a child. Let's just diffuse this convo and say that Ruby will surely be able to prove her worth if brought along.
Also tell Joy she's being more than a bit skeevy. Emerald offered what he gave her, because Emerald already lost his innocence.
Exploiting lost innocence is skeevy, Joy, but taking somepony's innocence is far worse.
Tell Ruby we run errands and help out around the house in exchange for housing and magic lessons.
Our other payment methods are private and non of Ruby's business.
Change the subject and ask joy if she'll let us help her make some of the items she has for sale too maybe Ruby could help too by helping make potions.
Isn't that kinda backwards?
She is helping Joy with her quest, Ruby will be working for her. Who pays their employer for work?
It is Joy who should be paying her, not the other way around.
If I remember correctly I think we already told Ruby we do sex for cash I think. She brought up something about how she wouldn't sell her body for cash but didn't blame us for doing it.
I'm just trying to hide hide that emerald sells spunk for magic lessons because it's embarrassing.
It was our choice to do this whore out,
let not lie it's been fun.I just don't want Ruby to think she has no choice just because Joy wants to punk us because she thinks we like a girl.
We wanted to be as powerful she still has some baggage and we'll hopefully won't make the same mistakes but I guess that comes with the territory of master mage. Nothing comes for free.
I personally think that becoming hollow would be a bad thing for Emerald in the long run. He has enough issues as it is. We don't want him to become something like Uncle Lucky when he get's older.
Maybe Ruby will wanna have some fun later, but let's not be tactless and basically shove it down her throat.
Ruby will have plenty of chances to prove herself later and Emerald should press that on Joy.
Perhaps this is a path we should walk alone. If were so worried about Ruby knowing of our double life. Besides we are training to get revenge this could get messy and its not like we cant come back to see Ruby later.
Emerald clears his throat in an embarrassed way, and then tells Joyride that she is being creepy, and that she shouldn't make Ruby do what he does. Furthermore, if Ruby is helping her get a potion, shouldn't that be enough of a payment already?
"It'd be enough of a payment if the potion ingredients were right around the corner, but if I bring her along I'm going to have to pay for her food, lodging, 'annoying me' tax, etc... Why shouldn't I want something from her?"
Emerald says that maybe she can run errands for her, or cook and clean.
"You aren't going to let this go are you?" Joyride says rolling her eyes, "Well you are lucky filly juices aren't worth nearly what yours are. Fine, you clearly want to stick your dick in this girl bad enough to want me to drag her along. She can be my errand boy if she wants. You okay with that, Ruby?"
Ruby seems to take offense to being called "Boy", but nods her head, "To get away from this town I'd do whatever errands you want."
"Good. Here is your chance to prove it. First task." She says, pulling out a few bits, "Go to where ever you sleep and gather your things, if you have any. Second, on the way back stop by the alley behind Fairflank's Furniture store and find a guy with a funny hat and a stupid beard. Ask him for some 'Whitehill Gold'. You got all that?"
Ruby nods, and taking the bits dashes out the door.
Tell Joy that she should be nicer.Tell joy that we're gonna go read, but instead slip out and follow Ruby, just to make sure Joy didn't send her to a rapist's house or something.
Ask Joy if she has our focus done yet?
Im itching to try out our spells. Plus if we're doing spell combat it might give us the chance to hit joy in the face with a mud clod and that will be funny if she instinctively tries to lick it off with her tongue.
Also let Ruby handle herself, she already got upset over us playing for the puppet show, she seems like the self reliant type.
I think she's a bit worry about losing us to some girl given her past experiences. She seems to have abandonment issues.
I think we should let Ruby do it herself.
If she doesn't prove she can get things done on her own, it will probably be less likely for Joy to agree on letting her join our adventures.
I'm agreeing with these posts.
Why is Joy so annoying? Why the fuck can't we just ignore her more? Can any supporters for leaving or at least marginalizing Joy chime in, if nothing else but to sound off?
Hell, this is a cyoa after all. On thing that is really starting to irk me is how quick people are forgetting the side quests we could go on. Like exploring deeper in the cave, finding out who's who around town, spending more time with Sensoria, training with Sensoria, etc.
But for some reason all people vote for is spending time getting ragged on by Joy.
I blame the mix of new people who don't have any clue what's going on and also Joy trolls. I'm sure Joy supporters don't care (why would they?), but it still feels like there's so much more fun stuff being missed just so we could be a "Yes man" for Joy.
Yeah I think we should grill her a bit about what her problem is.
You do bring up an interesting point, we could be exploring a bit more. but I still think we can do that and stay with Joy, it's not like we're with her 24/7.
Personally I want to learn more from Joy, but recently she's been a real dick.
First the cock blocking, and now she's perving on Ruby.
I want to confront Joy about it and hopefully move along with the magic studies.
However if she keeps being a pain I don't mind taking a break from her shenanigans.
Ruby also knows the streets and probably how they operate, so her streetsmarts should help her out.
Forgot to add that tidbit to the post.
I'm all for snarking back at her.
I like the first part about losing us to Ruby, though she'll counter how she doesn't want us to be cheating on Hope.
I've been here since the second thread and frankly, I just like Joy, even if I'm also cautious about her.
Sadly, these threads tend to start very late in the night where I'm at, so I haven't been able to contribute alot to the last couple of threads and have mostly just had to tag along with everyone else's decisions.
I would kinda like to explore what the town has to offer and do other things, just as long as we don't permanently leave Joy... Yet.
Way to spin it like joy is our matron and not our sleazy pimp or some shit.
You know. Cuz I really want Emerald growing up to act like the mare who just casually smears semen into her fur and skin when it's eventually brought up that it plasters her face.
Yep. Joy's a real fun class act.
(Last for the night. Also, anyone have any palette suggestions for Ruby since I guess it doesn't look so great?)
Emerald watches Ruby leave with a smile. It's nice to have some little victory of Joyride. He wants to Ruby, but he knows that she will do well by herself. After all, she's lived in Whitherwater almost all her life. She probably knows a lot more of it's secrets than most.
Emerald suddenly remembers the furniture store Joyride was talking about, and particularly the pony behind it. he asks what Whitehill Gold is.
"A drug. By itself it isn't going to do anything to me but... Well, if you want to see some REAL alchemy I'll show you what I do with it!" Joyride says, chuckling.
Emerald instead turns to Joyride, and asks her how the preparations for leaving are going.
"I was thinking about leaving the day after tomorrow. I still have a few things I need to do, mostly check on the enchantments for some of the supplies I want to bring. Oh yeah, thanks for going and grabbing the food and stuff, it was delivered today and I have it stored away already."
Emerald asks if she managed to finish his focus yet.
"Nope. Come bug me when you wake up tomorrow morning though. should have it by then." Joyride says, grabbing dishes and piling them in sink. Turning away from him to scrub the dishes by hoof.
Finally, Emerald asks Joyride to be nicer. She seems to always get rude whenever Emerald gets close to mares. If she wants him to stay acting like a dick isn't going to make him want to do it.
Emerald sits there and waits for her response, but she just continues to wash dishes.
Emerald doesn't know what he was expecting, but it wasn't silence. It's a little unnerving.
What does Emerald do?
I think we should clarify.
We mean br kind in words. In actions Joyride has been quite kind to us, but she talks a harsh game.
We know she's good because of what she does, but others might not see it if she treats them poorly in conversation.
The Codex Astartessupports this action.
Through our topsy-turvy life, she's one of the very few friends we have, and, in a very strange
and kinda disturbingway, one of the closest things we have to family.
Just clarify that we like spending time around her but would also like to feel comfortable having friends around, too.
If she still says nothing, just drop it and help with the dishes.
I know it's always annoying to hear mixed responses, but I think Ruby's colors are fine. I like that her darker colors contrast with Emerald's lighter colors, but maybe that's just me.
Also I hope Joyride isn't taking it the wrong way when we asked her to be nicer. So we should ensure her that we're thankful for her and that she is nice, at least sometimes.
I don't really mind the players' inability to handle it, given Emerald's personality he probably wouldn't either. Even if he dismissed it as joking it'd still wear at him since he's not the 'giving shit' personality type. Joy is the friend you need to take a break from every now and again.
You are an idiot because you can treatise Joy is playing Emerald for the long haul. What she gets out of him is far more than what she puts in. It is anything but fair no matter what you think.
Unless you're as dumb as the natives who accepted beads for the whole fucking state of Rhode Island.
Joy is not a friend. I'm seriously fucking sick of people acting like she's some wounded woman with a heart of gold under the ice when in reality she's a shallow, cold, disgusting bitch who made a bad call for immortality and now has to make it everyone else's problem.
Anyone who thinks Emerald is that "one special colt that'll turn her around! : )" is either pants on head retarded or a troll.
She is a friend.
A crazy, selfish, perverted, rude, wonderful friend.
>Anyone who thinks Emerald is that "one special colt that'll turn her around! : )" is either pants on head retarded or a troll.
Or, they are right. Only time will tell.
That's always a good way to get people to agree with you. "I-If you don't agree with my arguments you're j-just stupid!" I mean, that's the only way someone could disagree right?
Whatever. This quest is obviously railroaded towards being Joy centric. I'd highly doubt that the QM will make Emerald leave Joy, and I also bet she obviously will have some gay redemption scene at the end involving her ex lover or some other horribly contrived character.
Basically colt quest has become "fix Joy's life for her" quest.
And that is incredibly, incredibly lame.
>been on the ride for years
>never had anything close to a waifu before
>mfw Joy is really damn close to that
A fucking OC, but dammit i wish she was real
> I'd highly doubt that the QM will make Emerald leave Joy
The QM isn't forcing the players to do something they don't want to do. My god. The horror. The QM not railroading. Say it isn't so.
This is just the joy arc, my friend, we agreed to become her apprentice and now we are going until the end, and the idea of abandoning Joy right now would be fucking stupid anyway, literally 2-3 butthurt faggots samefaging because they can't handle the banter
Yup. Can't wait for the next time Joy torslly helps us for the sake of liking us or altruism...oh wait.
Can't beat that.
Basically, yeah. Quest will end with either "redemption" or "betrayal" by Joy. Naturally the Joy fags wills scream their precious heads off for Joy to be happy, so naturally our QM will make it so.
Of course after she also had her fun manipulating Emerald the whole time.
Because her redemption totally negated her bitchy attitude and the ways she treated Emerald and others : )
Not Arch. But whatever.
I think it's incredibly gay that there is some super sekret klub that decided this is now a Joy quest.
She's never fun.
Agreeing with the hugs. But we shouldn't let her off the hook completely. Tell her we were offended by some of her "Jokes" and how she treats us sometimes. But we do still care for her somewhat.
It's not so much being offended, but more that some of the jokes contained enough edge that it seemed intended to cut. She's a fun mare to be around when she's not being a twat about it.
Be patient my friend, Joy is fucked in the head and we still don't know what makes her tick, and like her or not she still is our greatest ally
>Because her redemption totally negated her bitchy attitude and the ways she treated Emerald and others
She is an asshole, but she clearly shows she gives a shit about Emerald, there is no reason to be so butthurt, specially considering that all the shit we are getting happened because WE decided to do that in the first place
>I think it's incredibly gay that there is some super sekret klub that decided this is now a Joy quest.
And thankfully OP seems to be using his moral compass instead of just picking whatever post has the most "upvotes", so unless you have a better idea that isn't a rigged strawpoll or a tripfag circlejerk, this is how its gonna happen, and so far the majority seems to like Joyride or at least stick around to her
>people say choose matter
Ok. I vote Emerald acts a bit more dominant, or at least tries.
>lol that's fucking dumb Anon I'm a sub and I like subby Emerald even though I just said your vote should matter if it's the majority
How about he tries boy clothes?
>lol so dumb Anon
Ok... how about we do something about Joy constantly giving us lip when we treat her with much more respect and it's clearly wearing thin?
>LOL SOMEONE CAN'T HANDLE THE BARTZ
Where do I even begin?
>being this butthurt just because nobody else wants the same shit as you
Please, fuck off to the booru where you belong
Thanks for being the umpteenth person in the thread to admit in a roundabout way that the QM basically railroads the quest regardless of the audience. Then the audience base change he's and the majority wonders why they now have a small but vocal group of dissenters.
Gee. What a fucking conundrum.
No anon, that one player doens't get his choices followed so NO ONE has any choice! Just like how a few threads back Joy RAPED Emerald by offering him a choice he could decline. The Anon's logic is flawless.
Such a great argument. Wow. Totally blew me away. And that pic really capped it off, too.
Sounds like someone worships the literal walking pillar of salty orgasm denial that is Joy.
Fuck you. You're just baiting. Go back and read how the QM literally wrote the majority opinion out of the story. It's happened multiple times where the majority opinion gets ignored. Or that it's somehow a troll post to get Emerald to do something without Joy. I can't belive were still helping her this far in.
I honestly don't see this as railroaded, just as a path or arc we chose that we are now following, its like people think this is a Nickfury CYOA where we can just make Emerald shoot apples from his asshole or go super sayian, and the fucking newfags should fucking lurk, if people suggest stupid shit we call them for that and move on with our lives, the end, there is no need to derail the thread because some idiots are forcing their hot opinions everywhere, since OP can't tell who is who we should at least show that we don't want that shit idea to speak for all of us
And we DO influence the story, railroad or not, we are just bound to Emerald's point of view which is why sometimes shit we wish to happen doesn't really happen
I have nothing against the people who don't like Joy, she needs to be watched even though I still like her, but a lot of the time it just boils down to arguing against her instead of coming up with ideas.
Just like they most like won't change their opinion, they need to realize that we won't change ours no matter how many times the same points are brought up and argued for over and over again.
I'm not saying the Joy-supporters don't act the same way sometimes, it tends to be black and white and ignoring the shades of grey on both sides.
It doesn't contribute in any way and just brings down the mood instead of being constructive.
At this point I'd literally kill Joy. She's so terrible to be around. Nothing pleases her besides Emerald's discomfort. She pushes his limits of sexual and emotional comfort then slides him a bowl of icecream like it's no big thing.
I like how we also said we'd stick with Joy to get the ring off for some reason and now here we fucking are, being a little fucking prostitute for some salty asshole who can't cum and needs to somehow make it our problem.
I'd kill her. Because at this point just being around her is insufferable. She's literally a 4channer personified.
Joyride is the penultimate autism.
Didn't she said she saw a lot of herself on Emerald? Or maybe i am wrong, i dunno, but to be fair she clearly doesn't give a fuck about sex, she didn't even noticed that cum on her face and when she did she reacted like it was nothing
>I'd kill her. Because at this point just being around her is insufferable. She's literally a 4channer personified.
>Joyride is the penultimate autism.
well than i guess that explains why i like her so much
Hey, how about we just ignore and don't put some random attention whore on the pedestal for once? How about we ignore his existence and use actual arguments instead of bitching about attention whore ruining the thread, which will only attract attention whore and false flagging shitposters
I'm just relaying what you're saying. Tell me a post or an instance that I can look up. Clothing has come up four or five times and I'm not looking through half the quest for probably non-existent evidence of your position for you.
If you're not going to you're just asking me to believe you just because.
I actually don't like joy because I see her as the pony incarnation of Cold Steel the Hedgehog.
She's way over powered and is super edgy while at the same time also super salty about everything like a brooding tween.
This thread made me think, let's say i make some intentional wrong post about a subject, nothing too obvious, just a wrong opinion, them a few minutes later i samefag with another post saying "this" or some shit like that, would be possible that the other post alone would make all the people who see both posts question it legitimacy, making them believe the wrong opinions are actually right and maybe even agree with them publicly?
>Probably the same tumblrtards that whine about how voluntary intercourse is rape.
Wow Anon, such an odd choice for a comparison right there, out of nowhere, anything you would want to tell us?
>Joy not offering to help us is railroading.
Man. Maybe we are becoming to dependent on Joy. Nothing stopped us from using our bits to walk out and buy a leather jacket or something.
I actually have a hard time believing that people haven't made the connection between Joy and every other edgy OC in existence.
She basically ticks all the boxes:
>immortal due to edgy plot device reason
>brooding over lost lover yet still a literal sex machine and able to get laid however she wants
>criminals and underworlders fear her power and reputation that even they would never cross her
>poofy dress and dramatic cloak
>has access to the most powerful magic items and ingredients
>has access to all key people
>has ultimate library with all magic knowledge and more
>can fight a dragon and win
>even dragons know her by name
>ccan make a harem out of whatever she wants
Holy shit, I'm seriously laughing aloud making this list.
>"Nothing personnel, kid!"
>going full /pol/
Brilliant, them use strawmans and boogeymans to my advantage, associating anyone who disagrees with me to be part of the extreme opposition while trying to keep my high ground
She's sorta hilarious though. She's so wildly strong, connected, and capable while having the most generic "mysterious brooding past" cliché that, to me, I have a hard time taking her seriously.
>>immortal due to edgy plot device reason
Was that even explained? I don't think its fair to call it edgy before it even being revealed
>brooding over lost lover yet still a literal sex machine and able to get laid however she wants
>can make a harem out of whatever she wants
Being a deviant is not OC shit though, and she clearly tries to fill the void with sex, which is something people do a lot IRL
>poofy dress and dramatic cloak
How the fuck is that edgy?
>has access to the most powerful magic items and ingredients
She is a merchant, of course she will own rare shit
>has access to all key people
>has ultimate library with all magic knowledge and more
>can fight a dragon and win
>even dragons know her by name
She is old as fuck, and travels everywhere, of course she will have a reputation
Half of the shit you mentioned can be summed up as "she is OP", but we still don't know where any of that stuff comes from, and the other half makes sense when you consider her backstory
I do agree that she is way too reliable, but this isn't neither edgy or OC, just regular bad writting
>In a world torn by war, one mare rises above the filth.
>(shot of Joy laying atop a bunch of stallions and zebras and other races, all sexually spent)
>Emerald in shock and awe, also finds Hope in the pile.
"Nothing personnel, kid."
>She was the best there was, and she was ready to prove it.
>(shot of Joyride defeating dragons, monsters, rivals, etc.)
>But one lone mare would cause t all to crumble down.
>(shot of Joy's lover getting swept away be an ever edgier OC)
>Emerald asks as Joyride stands at the sink,
>"Why so salty to me, Joy?"
"Nothing personnel, kid."
>(dishes go BLAM!)
Joyride is such a shitty person. Has all that time alive ruined her brain, that she cannot realize that kids are kids and that all because YOU had a personally bad time doesn't mean that others should get your bullshit?
It's because of the abundance of Joy apologists. Being cliché doesn't mean she's necessarily bad. That and people trolling and idiots taking the bait. And trolls trolling trolls trolling trolls, etc.
It does feel like we're spending time with the edgiest of characters with hardly any depth and just getting salt for it. I love the characters that OP made but Joy is both predictable and wish fulfillment. Which is why I'd like to see other characters more without having Joy around. She's good in small doses.
Would be hilarious to see "Joyryde teh Unicron" art in all her salty, deadpan, OP glory.
>...which could spell the end for Emerald's anus.
>(shot of huge zebra dick going up Emmy's bum, with a reaction face on Em to match)
>Joyride clinks a pile of bits off to the side.
"Nothin' personnel, kid."
>Crazy strong Marry Sue who's also a bitch who we get the "privilege" of being a pseudo apprentice even though she treats us more like property and an inconvenience than a person
>Joy cannot separate Emerald from her own personal problems, therefore we must accept her being saltier than a saltine cracker to us.
Wow. I'm so overJOYed.
>experienced traveler who has been through a lot both physically and emotionally accepts little runaway colt's request and decides to help him as long as he pays her fairly
>provides him with food, a place to stay and many other things and always makes clear to him that he needs to pay for whatever he wants
>watches over him and gives him his own space, never actually forces him to do anything
What pisses me off the most is that people don't seem to notice that she made very clear nothing is free with her, she always asks for a way to be paid and isn't into charity, which is exactly what a merchant character should be like.And considering all the above i don't really blame her for stopping giving a fuck about behaving, if i was a near immortal being who lost so many friends over the years and have been into so much sex i would also be very tired, she probably only see us as companion number 362 or something
People complain about Joy but look at Emerald, a wimp who relies too much on the others and can't stay for 5 minutes without getting into trouble, so far all he did was ask and ask, use her stuff and complain, and all she did was ask for a way to be repaid, which is fair enough, she never actually forced us to do anything, it was either us because majority/samefags or because OP ignored something
Well, both sides are pretty loud, both the apologists and the bashers. I still think the biggest problem is that it's all about opinions, and both sides are trying to debunk the other and none of them will succeed.
I try to stay neutral on this, balancing the pros and cons of Joy and try to make the decision I think is best based on that.
And hell, if she really is that OP, then as long as we keep her on our side, we have a pretty big gun to aim at anyone who tries to come for us. Like our very own "nuclear deterrent".
She may like to play us, but that doesn't mean we can't play her to our advantage, even if it could be very risky.
For now, I'm fine with watching things unfold and try to stay out of the arguments, since, like I said, they are pretty pointless when neither side will listen to the other, while others find their jollies in baiting and trolling both sides.
I will agree that I would like to have some adventures with other characters in the future, if for no other reason than variety, but I don't want to weasel out of helping Joy, at least not yet.
Hey im.not saying Emerald isn't a Mary Sue. He's just the antithesis of Joyride. He does whine a lot and in general is an ungrateful little shit. I'm sort of excited to see bad things happen to him. I'd bet most people here are playing the long game of ruining Emerald's relationships with others via earlier decisions that others won't like once discovered.
>if she really is that OP
Lol. She fights dragons, everyone knows what a "badass" she is and not to cross her, she can access all important weapons and is apparently the ultimate seductress.
I think it's safe to say she's pretty much OP. Just a little bit.
I wasn't denying it, I'm just saying it has its advantages, even if it does kinda suck the challenge out of things.
Well, can't really do anything about that. All I know is, if Joy does something I like or is helpful, I support her, and when she does stuff that annoy me or I find detrimental to our adventure, I don't support her.
You say that like it's not a valid option. Because I don't /know/ what will happen. I don't /know/ what the QM is planning, and neither do you.
But since you asked, what I think /might/ happen is that we will continue training our magic until we feel ready enough to take on our parents, if we still want to do that at that point.
Joy's facade /might/ crack, or it will not.
And I think at some point she will either shatter our faith in her och confirm it, and that is not me being indecisive, I have been considering both outcomes for a long time and I find both of them interesting prospects to face, as long as SOMETHING happens with her, because if she doesn't develop or evolve in any way, then her entire character will just have ended up being a waste of time aside from some perks we might have gotten along the way.
Right now, I'm leaning more towards pro Joy. Despite her attitude and problems, I don't think she will betray us because I see no gain for her to do so, but that might change at any time in the future. I would like to see her become a true companion, but I'm also bracing for the chance that the shit will hit the fan if the QM desires it to happen.
I'm not so naive as to think she hasn't done a lot of shitty things and will probably continue to do so, but to say that she hasn't done anything for us willingly is just as blind. That is what usually irks me about the arguments about Joy, it's either for or against, black or white, no compromise.
tl;dr You're right, I don't know, but that's okay, because it's an adventure and I'm having fun.
So? It doesn't change what I've said. I still haven't agreed with every decision that has been made about her, I'm just not going out of my way to defend or bash her after every single post.
>hey guys, I don't think that Joy is always on the up-and-up, but you know what's the worst? Those annoying guys who say that we should just ditch her, or otherwise marginalize her in the quest for awhile. I mean, she is the best asset we ave and is also super powerful, and she doesn't technically make Emerald do anything he don't want to. Can't those radical anti-Joy guys see that? Gee, it sure makes neutral people like me really appreciate Joy as character more. I mean, not that I go out of my way to defend her or make her look good or anything.
I am 99.308% certain that Joyride wouldn't admit to having her feelings broken in a non-hissy way. So prepare for a shitstorm.
I'm 22.67% certain that Joyride did not like what we just said.
I'm 100% certain that being a brat to Joyride is not a good idea. Sure she is .. uh.. questionable, and she uses us for her own ends... but are we not using her for our own ends? That is, our own end of safety in the world? I don't see this relationship as one-sided or bad. She does plenty of things for us when we ask her to. It takes some haggling but it gets done.
My command is...
>Say "Sorry, I don't want to be mean..."
>Sweetie Belle chirped, proud to have gleaned anther compliment from the fun monkey man.
>"After all, it'd be awful if you pimped me out or treated me with mocking disdain if I asked you simple questions or just tried being nice to you. since you know, a a child, I do get my feelings easily hurt. I could only imagine if I grew up in an abusive household though! I'd probably be a lot more sensitive when someone I thought i could trust some of my emotions in casts them aside like they're just baggage."
>she places a hoof to her chin, thinking with her ears pinned back for a minute before finally perking up.
>"Sorry about the tangent, though. I know you'd never allow anything to happen to a foal, right Anon?"
Maybe, but at least I didn't ignore about half of what someone wrote and decided to resort to a silly game of sarcasm as the only answer. That would just be downright stupid, am I right?
>Maybe, but at least I didn't ignore about half of what someone wrote and decided to resort to a silly game of sarcasm as the only answer. That would just be downright stupid, am I right?
Wow. How passive-aggressive of you. Is your period hitting you hard today or what?
Seriously though, do you want to continue this discussion seriously this time, or are we just going to call it quits, agree to walk away and not waste anymore of each others time?
"That's right Sweetie"
>You says as you pull her onto your shaft again, having let her rest long enough.
"We all operate as our characters are dictated in the world we exist in"
>You keep a tight grip on her small body as you jerk her up and down on your shaft, her small pussy only able to take in about half of it.
"And in this one I'd never disrespect my best cocksock like that"
>Her answer is just another moan as you ram as deep into her as you can.
>A few minutes later and you're pulling her off your cock, having already unloaded into her.
>She laid down out of the way, panting heavily from the experience and trying desperately not to hoof herself.
>Like any good cocksock the priority was your orgasm, she was just thankful to be used even if she didn't get off.
So hey. I love Anon x Sweetie Belle stories. I'd love to read a longer story about what you've just written. Clearly I'm gonna fucking love it.
Write more. It was great. The idea of a desperately horny Sweetie taking load after load from her lover is hot as fuck.
listen joy. you know who i am. you know who my parents are. you know you will never find another companion like me. i know you have had many companions in your lifetime, but i'm the only one who will be with you for life, who will need you for life. even after i'm gone i will still need you. so i'm going to ask you a simple question and i expect a yes or no answer.
do you want to be with me, for life?
I'm not even part of this argument. Personally I get that Joy is kinda dickish, and needs to be called out on it. But she's our best path to power and revenge on our step parents, so I can deal with it.
But I saw this comment and nearly fucking raged. Are you fucking retarded? You do realize that this quest doesn't make it to DB until weeks after it's posted here right?
You fucking Derpibooru faggots need to leave and stay gone.
>Personally I get that Joy is kinda dickish, and needs to be called out on it. But she's our best path to power and revenge on our step parents, so I can deal with it.
>But I saw this comment and nearly fucking raged.
>You do realize that this quest doesn't make it to DB until weeks after it's posted here right?
Yes I do, but nevertheless it was discussed on DB and it was agreed that the dress was Unisex enough to fit with either colts or fillies.
>You fucking Derpibooru faggots need to leave and stay gone.
It's too late for that. So I suggest that we be peaceable and co-exist for the betterment of the quest.
of all the rage-posts these faggots are storming up about this piddly shit, this one probably has a legitimate vitriolic response...
You don't peacefully coexist with another website on your own damn website. This is 4chan, and that's derpibooru, they co-exist plenty peacefully with us calling you a faggot.
>im outta here anyway
There's no point in screaming and raging at the newcomers from DB and Elsewhere as all it does is derail the thread and lessen the fun for everyone around. That is why I was suggest that we set differences aside and be peaceable to each other.
not the same guy but i don't give a single fuck about where they came from, the problem is that they don't fucking lurk and end up saying stupid shit, them people call them for their bullshit and they complain and start pulling the victim card, if these newfags just started lurking already like they should none of this would have happened, this has been said already, lurk for a few weeks, maybe a month, them start posting, or else you WILL fuck up and just be the cancer of the thread, and the last thing we need is some moralfag underage faggot trying to derail this lewd quest into something that it isn't
i am honestly surprised we are managing to have this much sex considering how people seem to be more focused on everything else
From my observation the moral crusading happen shortly before Colt Quest started appearing on Derpibooru. So chances are most of those types were already here before people from DB started showing up.
>So I suggest that we be peaceable and co-exist for the betterment of the quest.
I agree with you. The issue is that there's a community here, and you're willfully going out of your way to ignore the common etiquette here.
4channers are not going to go on DB and call everyone a faggot willy nilly, and gleefully tell folks to shut the fuck up. That gets you banned, and rightfully so; it's not how the community works and it fosters divisiveness
Here is different. Moderation is more lax and so the community self-moderates. /mlp/ polices itself to some extent, and if they act more abrasively, it's to keep undesirables out and chase off hugboxers. If you act out of line with what the community deems acceptable, you get ridiculed and shunned, and that's the same everywhere. Surely you can understand that. In short, don't be a newfag.
Yeah arguments have been a thing here since before it was uploaded to DB desu
No I understand. I just feel they are being overly zealous and aggressive about it. To the point where they are taking people to task for asking if anyone was planing doing some fanart or using a smiley emoticon.
I'm just here to have fun and influence Emerald's choices. Just like every cyoa'er here.
Again? Seriously? We're seriously doing this again?
Emerald goes up and hugs Joyride. He says that he has no plans to leave her, but sometimes she really makes it hard sometimes.
"Thanks." Joyride says, and then a few seconds later says, "I am who I am and I'm not changing. Just saying."
She doesn't seem to keen on continuing the conversation, so Emerald just helps her wash the dishes. After a little while a breathless Ruby returns, holding what looks to be some rags, a book, and what appears to be a small bag of something.
"Here ya go Joyride!" Ruby says, walking up, "What are these little pill things?"
"Whitehill Gold, m'girl! Darn, I need to think of a nickname for you... Hmm, anyway, time for good lil' kids to go to bed! You can stay in Emerald's room until we leave for the west." Joyride says, turning to the filly like your conversation didn't happen.
She then shoos you both out the door, and Emerald turns back around with the key to his room. Ruby looks on confused, and then confused and excited once Emerald opens the door again.
"What in the..." She says, walking into your flat and looking around.
Emerald does his best to explain what the keys do to #304 Coursewalk, but when he thinks on it even he really doesn't know.
Ruby yawns, and then finding a space on the floor fluffs out her rags, which Emerald suddenly realizes are her bedding. She then puts the book where the pillow would go and lays down.
What does Emerald do?
Yes, we should very much offer our bed. FFS no guest/friend of ours is gonna sleep on the hard ground if we have a say in it.
I think the bed should be big enough for the both of us.
And if the bed isn't big enough for the both of us,(comfortably) then be nice and let he sleep on it.
Emerald tells her that she can sleep in his bed if she wants.
"You sure? I don't want to put you out or anything." Ruby says, sitting up from her rag pile.
Emerald insists, and soon the pair are laying atop the springy bed under a nice warm comforter. Emerald notices she still has the book in her hooves and asks about it.
"It's a book full of food! You said you'd teach me to read some right? I want to read this!"
Emerald takes a closer look at the book. It is indeed a book about food, or more specifically a cookbook. He puts it on the nightstand near his bed, and then asks her what her favorite food is.
"Oh man, down at the fountain square they have this really great ice cream that-"
They talk for quite a while, just the two of them laying in the bed. Neither of them saw the other fall asleep, or realized when they fell asleep themselves.
Emerald awakes the next day, a slight shock running through him before he remembers who the other person in the bed is. Ruby still appears to be asleep. She is drooling slightly. Emerald just watches her breath for a few seconds before deciding he should probably get up.
What does Emerald do?
absolutely presh. Any breakfast recipes in the book we could whip up for our ladies?
These are good.
I think today we should combine the reading lessons and cooking. Go ask about the focus first.
When we come back see if Ruby is awake. Say that if we teach her to read she teaches us how to cook, and we make breakfast together with emeral reading the cookbook..
but yeah let's make breakfast for 'em, maybe check our focus when Joy shows up
Emerald gets an urge to cuddle up to Ruby, but he isn't sure he could do that without waking her, and he isn't really sure she would appreciate it all that much. Not that he knows for sure but he doesn't want to push it.
Instead he picks up the cookbook on his nightstand and flips through it, looking for something he can cook for Ruby and Joyride. He isn't exactly the best cook, so settles on something easy, pancakes.
He fishes through whatever supplies are in his tiny kitchenette. He has the dry ingredients, but nothing else. He bites his lip. Nothing for it, he guesses.
He leaves his apartment and knocks on the door. Eventually Joyride answers the door and says,
"Morning lil' perv. What's up?"
Emerald asks if he can use some of her food to make breakfast for her and Ruby.
"Oh? You cook? This I gotta see. What do you need?"
Emerald says butter, eggs, and milk, and also syrup if she wants it. Joyride says he'll meet him in his flat and they both exit the door, with Emerald returning to his room. Joyride is good to her word and brings the supplies, which Emerald quickly whips up into decent pancakes.
"Hey, those don't look half bad lil' perv. Oh yeah, I got your focus done, here ya go." Joyride says, eating pancakes with one hoof and pulling out a fake phallus out of her mantle.
Emerald says that he'll take the pancakes away from her if this really is his focus, quickly glancing towards the bed to make sure Ruby didn't wake up and see it.
"Aww come on I was only kidding. Jeez, I have your book here too." She says, "But the dildo really is a focus. Couldn't hurt to have two, right lil' perv?"
What does Emerald do?
You never know when you'll end up with your book stolen having a extra focus might be handy also no one would ever second guess to think we could do magic with it.
Its like a hidden dagger.
That we keep in our butt. Kinky and functional.
That does make an excellent question. One i'm sure Joy will divulge the answer with a cheeky grin.
As goofy of an idea as the magic dickstick is, it really could make a good subtle focus.
I guess go hide our magic dickstick before Ruby wakes up.
Stare at her like pic related, them say thank you for the gift, keep the dildo, it may be useful
This is emerald we are talking about, his ass would probably be the first place they would look
Not if they don't know us...but if they rape us then yeah. But I doubt they would think it's a focus perhaps we can do butt casting.
So after they take our book from use they will think we're helpless and then boom! We fuck them up with a mud golem.
Ask if butt casting is a thing. And when we start learning to cast spells.
Everybody asking if the sex toy is her focus is obviously knew and didn't read the quest whatsoever. Unicorns do not need focuses because they have horns. The amount of new in this thread is absolutely sickening, and it is awful how people make comments without reading the story of being invested in it.
(Last for the night. Sorry for not very many updates. I got home late.)
Emerald asks Joyride what possessed her to actually make the dildo focus. he thought she was just kidding about that!
"Well, I wanted to make something I knew you'd want around you all the time and might get some use out of." Joyride says with a grin.
Emerald takes the book and tells her she can keep the dildo.
"But I don't need it, I suppose I could just give it to Ruby and you could be magical training buddies!" Joyride says with a clap.
Emerald takes the dildo and tosses it into his backpack, and asks Joyride if she's happy.
"Immensely so. I mean you could have just put it in and had two focuses at once! You could cast from both ends!"
Emerald isn't sure whether she is kidding or not, so just rolls his eyes and asks her to finish up so he can get training on magic, and wasn't there something she should be doing to get ready for their trip?
"Okay okay, I"m going..." Joyride says, shoveling the last little bit of pancake in her mouth, "Remember, we probably leave tomorrow... Bright and early!"
Joyride then leaves, and a few minutes later Ruby wakes up and walks groggily to the kitchen to see what Emerald is doing.
"Hey, you should have let me cook! Jeez, I'm already using both your room and your bed!" the filly says as Emerald slides a plate of fluffy pancakes in front of her, "I feel like such a mooch."
Emerald smiles, taking a bite of the pancakes he made for himself.
What does Emerald do?
Do we have other keys? If so, we could invite her for a quick tour or something
We are almost leaving and she i probably working right now, and it would be rude to just leave Ruby there
She did her errands yesterday, like was asked of her. Besides, you should pamper your guests a bit.
She'll get plenty of chances to help/cook once we teach her how to read. I think we can teach her to read later, I say we go see Sensoria since we're gonna be leaving soon.
Would also like to maybe squeeze in some time to see mr. alchemy zebra if we can tommorow.
Considering the average retard that seems to populate these threads i don't blame OP for playing the dungeon master, at least he i filtering the dumb shit and actually picking good ideas that go somwhere
Lets help Ruby learn how to read.
Then show off our sweet magic so we look like a stud.
Or at least the nerdy wizard equivalent to that.
Maybe we can find some easy pony magic to cast or some stuff we can use to do some simple goat stuff.
I agree with you whole heartedly. The majority of those that did want it though will bend over backwards to rationalize railroading though. It's why I'm pretty much dedicated to just troll posting now. It's obvious that this is a heavily guided at best cyoa.
at this point we might make a Joyride version of this
Just a meaningless poll for the sake of knowledge
Remember to pick two, one from the first half and one from the second half
>FUCK YEAH, BOOKS.pdf
I don't read much but I actually do love books desu lad
>I feel like such a mooch
Cook for me 'n Joy one day, if you're first up. You can even use that cookbook; I'll teach you how to read it today - a little! - if you're willing, Ruby?
resist the urge to boop
Bonding w Ruby and teaching a kid how to read sounds pretty durn good to me
Emerald wonders how Sensoria is doing. He decides to write a letter asking. As he does so he notices that Ruby is watching him.
"Man, wish I could write..." Ruby says longingly.
Emerald asks if he can teach her to read and write.
Ruby perks up and says, "Sure! Can we do it now? Can we use my book?"
Emerald nods, and Ruby dashes over and brings the book to the table. Emerald starts out by pointing out letters, and then grabs some spare parchment and has her practice writing them. This goes on for an hour or two before Ruby drops her head into the book out of frustration.
"Urgh..." Ruby says, lifting her head with a frown and scratching out some of her mistakes, "This is a lot more trouble than i thought it was going to be..."
Emerald tells her that she is doing fine. Ruby doesn't seem to have quite the skill at learning that Praline did. She is obviously trying her best, but she seems to be having trouble absorbing it all at once. After a little while more Emerald decides they should take a break.
>Ruby learned a little reading/writing!
A flash of light causes Ruby to jump, but Emerald to hold out his hoof as a letter falls into it. Opening it he finds a letter.
Dear my beloved Emerald,
Things are good! I've mostly been training and on duty. I talked to my commander about the training and he says it was okay as long as we can get some identification as to who you are, which may be a bit of a problem, heh.
Anyway, I hope to hear from you soon!
What does Emerald do?
I'm kinda thinking it was right of Joy to cockblock us.
It's one thing to just have sex for money or some fun is one thing, but playing with two mares hearts seems a little cruel.
If we're really going to dump Hope for Sensoria (which I personally vote against, but it would be up to the majority to decide) I'd prefer it if we made sure to break it to Hope first instead of just going behind her back whenever she isn't around.
Emerald writes a letter telling Sensoria that he'll be gone for a bit, but that he hopes to train with her when he gets back. He is quick to point out that he isn't sure when that will be but he'll let her know.
As he finishes the letter he grabs his dragonfire lantern and sends it off.
He looks up to see Ruby looking at him questioningly.
Emerald explains what the dragonfire lantern does and let's Ruby see it.
"Neat!" She says, turning the thing over in her hooves, "Once I start being able to write you gotta let me use it! I'll send a letter to... Hmm... My room mates, and pretend I'm a ghost that's haunting them!"
Emerald smirks at this.
What does Emerald do?
If you really want to be moral about it. It would be best to break it off with both of them. They're professional lives are at risk by just being with us in such a way and if someone wanted they could use us to blackmail either of them. They both have a lot to lose from the relationship.
Besides I don't think hope thinks of emerald in a lover's type of way. We already told her we think of her as a mom.
That's all fine and dandy, but we should make sure Sensoria understands this too, I'd hate to accidentally break her heart.
So maybe we should just be a little cautious about how romantic we act around her, is all I'm saying.
Just saying we shouldn't string either of them along, I'm fine with being in a relationship with either of them (though my vote still goes to Hope).
Sex buddies are okay, but waifus should be exclusive.
We still have not had an explanation for why we called her mommy. Considering the things they have done with each other, I'm inclined to think they have way more than just familial feelings towards each other... Unless of course they're into incest.
Hope is endgame, marrying her will give us the best ending, there is no reason to make such a big deal about Sensoria for now, just keep playing cool and don't go too far, don't tease her too much or she will legitimately fall in love and we may lose a good friend
>Besides I don't think hope thinks of emerald in a lover's type of way. We already told her we think of her as a mom.
Good point, but maybe its more like a sex thing, some milfs have this thing when they are dating someone who is older than them, they like to be called mom and shit, but that doesn't mean they literally see themselves as their mothers or wish to be their mothers
Go out and buy some of the spell material you need for the focus we may as well be armed. also so we can fuck around with stuff.
I'm not trying to pick any sides in the whole waifu wars here but you do know Hope will be a shriveled up raisin by the time emerald is able to marry her without sending hope to prison right?
Perhaps it's a bit early for him to be committing to someone.
>Perhaps it's a bit early for him to be committing to someone.
Well, it doesn't hurt to make plans, and Emerald comes from a rich family, its not hard to hide this kind of stuff, and since this isn't Equestria we can't be sure if there are rules against marriage with minors
Just saying there plenty of fish in the sea guys committing to me just feels dumb at this point.
>this isn't Equestria we can't be sure if there are rules against marriage with minors.
If this was the case I don't think the jewels would be hiding the fact that they rape their son. They would just tell everyone it was ok and force emerald to lie about it. Or maybe married him off by now.
Meh, I pegged her for being at least middle aged if not she's really wasting her better years with this ponycare bullshit, She really could be doing something else to combat her father about the war.
Sensoria is bony not a granny I think you get what I mean. But there's a difference between a bony girl and banging granny smith.
But like I said i'm not taking a side here i'm just being practical.
Also i'm pretty sure Sensoria's bony ass would have died from malnutrition by that time too.
(I like where this is going.)
Emerald thinks about going out, perhaps walking around town or maybe visiting those docks. It'd be nice to see that alchemist that visited them, but then he realizes that only Joyride knows where he is, and Emerald doubts she is even home right now.
"Hey, this book doesn't have any words in it." Ruby says from behind Emerald.
Emerald looks around to see her flipping through his focus. Emerald explains what it is, and she says,
"Whoa! You know magic? Cast something!"
Emerald says that he can't without the proper materials, and then gets the idea of going out and getting some magical ingredients, and maybe some groceries as well! That should fill out the day! Emerald asks what Ruby thinks.
"Yeah! I was feeling a bit cramped here anyway. It always feels more natural being outside on the sidewalk, ya know?"
Emerald asks how long Ruby has been out there on the streets.
"I dunno. Lost count. Or to be more accurate, I never started counting. Heh..." Ruby says, scratching her chin and not looking at Emerald.
The two walk out of #304 Coursewalk, Emerald patting the key safely in his pocket. Ruby asks what he needs for spells, and Emerald says some pretty normal stuff that they could purchase easy. For some of the easier spells he'd need metal, oil, feathers, rocks-
"Rocks? Feathers? We can get those down at the stream!" Ruby says happily, "There are plenty of birds there and well... It's a stream, so there are plenty of rocks as well!"
What does Emerald do?
>to be more accurate, I never started counting
I get the joke but It makes me wonder if we're going to need to teach her math.
Also we should really be writing down the spells we know in our book shouldn't we.
(Time for Fireball+Vanilla Vodka, boys.)
Emerald thinks on what spells he knows.
-Levitate Small Rocks (1 Feather/ 3 Small Stones)
-Rock to Sand (and vice versa)
-Rock to Mud (and Vice versa)
-Pest Potion (Mouse/Spider/Flies)
-Flavor Enhancer (Sweet/Salty/Bitter, etc.) Potion
-Potion of Curing Scraps and Bruises
He'll have to remember to write them down later. Emerald looks over at Ruby. He notices her clothes are quite ragged. He asks Ruby if she'd like some new clothes.
"No!" Ruby says, turning quickly to Emerald, "I mean, I'm not trying to be rude or anything. You've just done enough for me already alright? I'll get my own clothes if I need them. Maybe as we walk around or something..."
Emerald and Ruby make their way over to the stream that the filly was speaking of. It's surprisingly clear and calm for being a stream running through a bustling city, though both Emerald and Ruby can tell it'd probably be greasy to walk through, and they certainly wouldn't drink it.
Ruby picks up a stone and and skips it across. Emerald whistles, she gets a good six or seven bounces. Emerald has never skipped a rock before and asks her to teach him.
"Heh, I guess I can do that since you are teaching me to write and stuff." Ruby says with a sly grin.
She teaches him how to flick his hoof so the rock spins, and how to hold it steady so the rock bounces forward instead of crashing wildly and losing energy.
Emerald is having fun!
What does Emerald do?
I feel like we're gonna end up going clothes shopping and buy girls' clothes for ourselves and boys' clothes Ruby. Just a hunch.
Anyways, what >>26056231 said, let's play some more. Who knows what new tricks Ruby could teach us too!
>we never asked Sensoria about those dog tags
But why. I want to know damn it
We can send her a letter later if you want, we could mention the names on the tags and other shit
I was wondering, should be worried about whoever is reading Sensoria's letters for her? she doesn't seem to give a fuck about our disguise and called us Emerald on these letters, it could be dangerous
So here is me attempting to draw right now.
I think I'm too drunk to draw.
So I'm gonna just pass out.
I'll start another thread in a day or so. Let's just hang out. How are all of you?
Are you trying to compete with Bathwater on alcoholism?
