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?

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.

she is resourceful and smart.

She's a skilled rogue.
Sharp wit and sharper tongue.
>>
>>26031580
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.

>>26031746

No. Soon.

>>26031776
if we needed a scout we should have gone with a Pegasus.
>>
>>26031580
She's also told me she's good at cooking, though I can't vouch for that one yet.
>>
>>26031580
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.
>>
>>26031580

Ask Ruby what she's good at. And if she isn't sure then tell them what we observed of her.

Hope comes back from the war pregnant to find us with ruby after our adventures with joyride. She takes us both in and we start a dysfunctional happy family.

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?

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.

>>26032541

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.

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.

Yeah, I'm sure it will affect it.
Not

I've been to tumblr, dA, reddit. I've seen what popularity does to shit. It turns it into bland, hugboxy bullshit.

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.
>>
>>26032932
4chan is very much the exception.

>>26032956
Its because 4chan is a culture based around circling the wagons.

>>
>>26032956
Indeed it is. But it's still very dismaying how angry people get from using a smiley face emoticon.

>>26032977

Because I like the Quest and want to take part in it.
>>
>>26032932
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.
>>
>>26032932
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?
>>
>>26032490

Watch unless it gets serious.
>>
>>26033072

Blush and clear throat.
>>
>>26033072
Point out that the entire point of the adventure is to get what JOYRIDE wants, and Ruby would already be giving something by going along to help out.
>>
>>26033072
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.
>>
>>26033072
Say that we help other ponies have fun and enjoy themselves.
>>
>>26033072

Say that we help get money for the both of us.
>>
>>26033072
Attempt to dissuade Joyride from using Joyride as a whore.
>>
>>26033112
This.

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.
>>
>>26033072

Say that what we do dosn't matter and that Ruby could help with monsters and stuff. She has a knife after all and could be taught to use it.
>>
>>26033072
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.
>>
>>26033072
joy is scum
>>
>>26033149
>Attempt to dissuade Joyride from using Joyride as a whore.

I think it's too late for that...
>>
>>26033072

Tell her that we help Joyride in any way she needs. And that is how we pay her.
>>
>>26033072

Glare at Joyride and say that Ruby can do something else than that.
>>
>>26033072
Tell Joyride to stop being so goddamn edgy and rapey around everyone, and tell Ruby we do errands for Joyride, like an apprentice sorta.
>>
>>26033072

Tell Ruby we serve our Mistresses needs and leave it at that.
>>
I like how we've basically defined ourselves as Joyride's whore.
>>
>>26033072
Tell her that were a whore because we're shortsighted and a dumb kid who Koen has Stockholm syndrome from it all (and from the people who tell us what to do).
>>
>>26033072
Tell Ruby we prostitute ourselves for buts and Joy is our pimp.
>>
>>26033072

Sigh and tell Ruby the truth.
>>
>>26033072
Explain to Ruby that we work for Joy as a hooked and as a sexual amusement toy.

Since I guess that's what the posters here want for some reason.

>>
>>26033422
Seconded. Keep this hidden for now and reveal it in an intimate scene where we break down and cry into Ruby.
>>
>>26033072

Tell Ruby that she doesn't have to pay anything and that we'll pay for her.
>>
>>26033422
it's true though. there is no sense in prettying it up
>>
>>26033072

Say that we help Joyride any way we can. That she can help with chores and stuff or when we explore places for the items.
>>
>>26033072
tell ruby that joy wants her to be a whore. It's not a big deal
>>
>>26033072
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.
>>
>>26033474
Amusing, though I would hate to think that Emerald has already become that hollow.
>>
>>26033485
i thought we wanted to be like joy? being hollow is a good thing.

>>26033485

Well some do. Some don't.

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.

>>26033485
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.

>>26033497
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.
>>
>>26033497

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.
>>
>>26033558
should have thought of that before we agreed to dumb bullshit then huh?
>>
>>26033479
>Who pays their employer for work?
Spongebob Squarepants

Well that was a long time ago and we can always guide Emerald away from this kind of life if we so choose.
>>

>If I remember correctly I think we already told Ruby we do sex for cash I think.
Nope.

>>25963240

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.

yeah not likely

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.

Tell her that Ruby can prove herself on the road and doesn't have to pay right now.

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.
>>
>>26033675

Ask Joyride what Whitehill Gold is?
>>
>>26033669
so the answer is yes. go lie down and take a nap, it will make you feel better.
>>
>>26033675
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.
>>
>>26033708
So yes you're salty. Thanks for admitting it.
>>
>>26033675

Smile at Joyride for our little victory.
>>
>>26033675

Tell Joyride not to worry she'll prove herself in time. I feel confidant about it.

Thank Joyride
and hope nothing goes wrong with Ruby

>>26033675
You know joy, you seem to get pretty angry when I get close to mares. Why is that?

Top kek.
>>
>>26033675

Tell Joyride that we'll make it up to her if things don't work out with Ruby. But say we feel certain that things will work.
>>
>>26033675
It's not a big deal. We can pay for her food if necessary.
>>
I think we should go follow ruby too, i'm still remembering that time she wanted us to get illegal ingredients, and failed to mention they were illegal.

>>26033799
This too.
>>
>>26033675

Ask Joyride how are things going for our upcoming departure.
>>
>>26033675
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.

>>26033753
I think she's a bit worry about losing us to some girl given her past experiences. She seems to have abandonment issues.
>>
>>26033848
I like Joy, even if she's annoyingly brazen sometimes.
>>
>>26033675
Heh, "annoying me tax"
That one was pretty funny, Joy.

>>26033912
Good memory, you're right. I totally forgot about that little encounter, let alone that's one of the ingredients he had.
>>
>>26033675
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.

>>26033707
>>26033799
>>26033848
I'm agreeing with these posts.
>>
>>26033964
We should poke at Joy, imo.

Ask if she's worried about losing us to Ruby.
Tell her that if she keeps acting like a dick it doesn't make us want to stay.

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.
>>
>>26033675

Tell her we are going out and see Sensoria.
>>
>>26033991
Yeah I think we should grill her a bit about what her problem is.

>>26034003
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.
>>
>>26034003
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.
>>
>>26033675

Go out and explore town for a bit like the docks.
>>
>>26034003
We should leave joy. She is a big distraction and shit. She's so insufferable but we'll never leave her because op railroads.
>>
>>26033964
(Same Anon)
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.

>>26033991
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.

>>26034003
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.
>>
>>26033991
We'll have to call her bluff.
She's a real baby about her feelings. Perhaps it's time for some real talk.
>>

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.
>>
>>26033675

Ask how many days is it until we have to leave? As there are a few things we would like to do before we go.
>>
>>26034154
Don't be silly anon.
Joy is literally the devil, and must be stopped.

(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?
>>
>>26034261
>Way to spin it like joy is our matron
She has been this entire quest. If she didn't have a heart of gold, she would have sold Emerald out for the reward a long time ago.
>>
>>26034357
Tell her that you know others have left, you know they hurt her.
You don't have any plans to leave, but Joy, you catch, and keep, more flies with honey, you know?
>>
>>26034357
A lighter coat shade would probably be better. It's too similar atm.
>>
>>26034357

Ruby should have a lighter coat is all.
>>
>>26034357

See if Joyride is okay.
>>
>>26034357
Maybe a tan-colored coat? I'm bad at visualizing colors...
>>
>>26034357
She needs a non-sexy hug.
Tell her to just give ruby a chance and maybe she'll be come apart of our weird dysfunctional family to with hope.
>>
>>26034386
>>26034423
Make sure she is alright, but do mention that you wish that she'd be a bit more kind. A golden heart means nothing if you're a dick 80% of the time.
>>
>>26034357

If Joyride appears to be Upset then I suggest we take a walk out into town. Maybe visit Sensoria or the Zebra Olam.
>>
>>26034357
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.
>>
>>26034366
are you choosing to forget her saying that she can get more out of using us then she can get with gold or do you just not remember?
>>
You kids really can't handle the Joybantz can you?
>>
>>26034445
The Codex Astartes supports this action.
Through our topsy-turvy life, she's one of the very few friends we have, and, in a very strange and kinda disturbing way, one of the closest things we have to family.
>>
>>26034357
Tell joy that's all you wanted to say to her and leave. Thank her for the dinner.
>>
>>26034357
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.
>>
>>26034357
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.
>>
>>26034520
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.
>>
>>26034366
>>26034366
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.
>>
>>26034357
>>26034552
Also about Ruby's color scheme, the darkness of it kind of clashes with the usual pony pastel colors. It's not a big deal, though.
>>
>>26034357

Apologize and say we are not trying to hurt her feelings it's just that we feel at times that some of her jokes come off more rude than anything.
>>
>>26034562
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.
>>
>>26034577
Didn't think they they were getting gifts and it not being a trade?

Way to ignore my fucking point about the story. I'll entertain your shit after you address it.

Even then, it would mean Emerald is getting played by Joy and just buying into it.

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.

It doesn't have to be. Just tell Emerald things that would guide him away from her. Your choice, your vote.

>>26034689
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 : )

>>26034690
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.

Demonstrably wrong. QM ignores posts all the time.

>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

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.

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.
>>

emerald shouldn't have been given that choice in the first place. We didn't need or want money. It was just joy being her bitchy self again.
>>
>>26034888
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.
>>
>>26034894
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
>>
>>26034934
>I can't give an instance of it, but it happened! Believe me please! You're just a troll if you don't believe me!
Alright. You've given away that you have no legs to stand on.
>>
>>26034833
This, desu.

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 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:

>super OP
>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

>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

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

I could understand her being important, what I can't understand is that she's STILL trying to numb herself.

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.

>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

>>
>>26035531
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.
>>
>>26035648
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.

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.

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.
>>
>>26035276

>>
>>26035745
Give some specific examples of each then. Stuff that Joy would do. Where do you think this while Joy thing is heading?

>inb4 idk
>>
>>26035803
>idk
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.

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.

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.

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.

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
>>
>>26041467

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.

Therefore co-existing.
>>
>>26041722
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
>>
>>26041786

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.
>>
>>26039651
>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.

>>26042476
Yeah arguments have been a thing here since before it was uploaded to DB desu
>>
>>26042513

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.

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?
>>
>>26043849

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?

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?
>>
>>26045081

I don't think we have to. Joyride could probably do that or one of our clients.
>>
>>26045087

Look at her incredulously and take the book.
>>
>>26045087
ask for a strap. now emerald can have two dicks
>>
>>26045087
Tell her that she should put the dildo over her horn and become a dick wizard.
Or just see how long it takes for ruby to say something about it.
>>
>>26045087
Just take the book.

Lol. Joyride is such an aspie.
>>
>>26045087

Ask how either focus works.
>>
>>26045087
tell her to keep it. you only need your book.
>>
>>26045087

Just roll your eyes and go back cooking the pancakes.
>>
>>26045087
All jokes aside the dong wand could actually come in handy.
>>
>>26045087
Insert the focus into your butt and get used to it. Then no one will ever see or suspect it unless they lift your tail
>>
>>26045087
Put the phallus in the anus if we get captured they'd never check there
>>
>>26045087

Take the book though tell her that he'll keep the other one in mind if he needs it.
>>
>>26045087
Thank Joy
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.
>>
>>26045087
What could have possessed you to make a focus out of a dildo?
>>
>>26045087

Tell her to put the dildo away and not flash it around Ruby.
>>
Cast magic in your ass
>>
>>26045087

Ask how the focus on the dildo would even work?
>>
>>26045211
I think we actually mentioned the idea to her a while back.
>>
>>26045087

Ask if she's serious.
>>
>>26045197
We shouldn't keep it in our butt.

But who suspects a magic dildo?
>>
>>26045266
Its the best place to hide things.

Did you never read Shawshank Redemption?
>>
>>26045219
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.
>>
I think we should tell joy to shove it up her ass.

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.

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.

>>26045406

Could it be that I simply forgot that detail.
>>
>>26045336
>>26045374
It's already established that Unicorns don't need a focus and Joy didn't even have any interest until Emerald brought it up.

(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?
>>
>>26045537

Ask if she likes it?
>>
>>26045537
How about we spend the day with Sensoria.

Emerald deserves it since Joy wrecked that earlier date.
>>
>>26045537
Well I'm sure you could make something better.

Anyway, we could start by reading some of this to her.
Just point out various letters at first. We should start slow.
>>
>>26045537
Oh, she'll be able to repay Joyride soon enough.

Soon enough....
>>
>>26045537

How about we visit Olam the alchemist. See if he has anything useful to teach.
>>
>>26045537
Do we have other keys? If so, we could invite her for a quick tour or something
>>26045560
We are almost leaving and she i probably working right now, and it would be rude to just leave Ruby there
>>
>>26045537
Meh, she can contribute later.
Does she want to start learning to read today?
>>
>>26045560
Voting for this. After Sensoria skitterred off giggling, we haven't contacted one another.
>>
>>26045537
Tell her that she'll repay you in time. For now just let him help her. After you're done eating she's learning to read.
>>
>>26045537

Ask if Ruby would be interested in playing at the stream, by the docks she mentioned, later.
>>
>majority says no to dildo
>"if you don't take it then i'm giving it to ruby"

>>
>>26045606

Feels in character for Emerald to do that.
>>
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.
>>
>>26045617

Yes to all of this.

>>26045615
Also felt very much in character for Joy to be such a lewd slut about it.

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.
>>
>>26045606

>>
>>26045537

Visit Sensoria before we go. It'd make sense. After all she still needs a cream stuffing.

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!

Love,
Sensoria

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.
>>
>>26054549
I only pushed for the date to give Emerald something fun to do that night, not to get serious with her.
>>
>>26054549

I'd rather be with hope myself but Sensoria is/was a client and friend and it wouldn't hurt to throw her a bone now and again.

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?
>>
>>26054549
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.
>>
>>26054581
>>26054599
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.

>>26054646
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.
>>
>>26054643
Perhaps we can help her cook lunch when the time comes.

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
>>
>>26054803

Best not do that. What if Ruby walks in on that.
>>
>>26054643

Lets go visit the alchemist or play with Ruby.
>>
>>26054643
write to hope and ask how she's doing.
>>
>>26054843
That's what I'm trying to say, so I agree.
>>
>>26054643
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.

>>26054843
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.
>>
>>26054843
agree with sticking to hope as the end game.
>>
>>26054912
>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

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.

>>26054998
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.

>>26054938
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.

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?
>>

Any oil spills lately? That would really be convienant...

>>26055447

yeah ruby really needs a proper outfit, and since emerald just gang-whored himself out for a bunch of bits
>>
>>26055447

clothing shopping.
>>
>>26055447
>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.
>>
>>26055447

Think to our self what spells have we learned.

>>26055613
>>26055635
Roll for intelligence, and make sure to organize the spells by type like battle spells and spells we might need in a pinch are in the front

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?

>>26056202
>Slippery Potion
Oh, yes, this is good.
>>
>>26056202

Keep having fun. Play a few more games before moving on.
>>
>>26056226
But is it for external use only?
>>
>>26056202

See if you can show off one of your spells to Ruby.
>>
>>26056202

Be sure to gather any ingredients found here.
>>
>>26056232
With magic, does it matter?
>>
>>26056202
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
>>
>>26056422

ask next time.
>>
>>26056273
Probably not, magic is pretty much end all solution. Most of the time.
>>
>>26056422
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?

>>
>>26056880

Who's your favorite character drawing/writing?
>>
>>26056946
>Yup

care to hint at what some of it is?
>>
>>26056880

I want to thank you for this Quest. It has great characters and a good story. It's gotten me very invested in it. =)
>>
>>26056983
It involves emerald, ingredients, ruby, and another mare to impregnate.
>>
>>26056880
Who is more correct about Joyride, the anti-joys or the people who just want her to teach us things.
>>
>>26056880
Christ, how much did you have to drink?

Also, would you rather have fanart posted directly on here, or linked from offsite?
