NPCs: Heart Throb
GM: Queen-Pegasus

Another cold and stormy evening finds Rising-Chaos trotting away from town and towards her home in the outskirts. The cold, wet breeze whistles across the road - causing the laterns that line to the street to flicker then fade; this leaves Rising-Chaos wandering down a darkened coutry road with the winds whistling. A voice chimes out among the winds. "Been expectin ya, pet."
\A wise mare is always prepared. When Rising Chaos hears the voice she freezes, bracing herself. A light shines from her horn, illuminating the immediate area. This is a bad part of town to be stuck in, to far away to run, not close enough to home to get there easily either, the pony chose their place well. There's no hint of anxiety in her voice as she replies, however, she's cool as ice. "Hello, who am I speaking to?"

p Stormdancer=How likely are you to reply to a flare, if it's in Rising's colours? :P
You paged Stormdancer with 'How likely are you to reply to a flare, if it's in Rising's colours? :P'.

The voice is familiar - but not overly so. The stallion's voice drifting to Rising's ears on the wind from a different spot than the mare is looking. "C'mon now, love - no chance you've forgotten a face as beautiful as mine." hoof falls alerting Rising to Heart-Throb's presence as he trots out from behind decaying stone wall. "I do believe…" the stallion staring at Rising as he licks the smooth edge of his blade. We've got some business to tend to, love.
From afar, Stormdancer could be persuaded to show up!
Stormdancer pages: - Nao? >_>
p Stormdancer=I'm not being cut, just yet XD
You paged Stormdancer with 'I'm not being cut, just yet XD'.
:looks around in time to spot the stallion's appearance. She recognizes him, certainly, though they were never acquainted. Still, she's heard stories about him, and isn't going to take any chances, show no weakness. "Ah yes, my apologies, mister Heart Throb. You are certainly recognizable. What business do we have, I wasn't aware of anything." She'll let the 'love' pass for a scary pirate holding a sharp knife.

Queen-Pegasus rolls 1d20 (Surprise?) — Result: 9 | Sum: 9

ooc just being silly ^^
(OOC) Rising-Chaos: just being silly ^^
(OOC) Queen-Pegasus: meh, dice suck ignoring.
ooc didn't get the roll you want? It didn't really need a roll anyways
(OOC) Rising-Chaos: didn't get the roll you want? It didn't really need a roll anyways

Heart-Throb softly chuckles as he trots towards the seemingly unarmed mare. "Course not…" the undeniably handsome stallion drawing closer with every step. "Wouldn't expect ya to be sharp enough…" the stallion suddenly lunges forward intent on letting the tip of his dagger become intimate with Rising-Chaos. If Rising is on edge she should be able to escape with just a knick.
:is more than ready, and expected the move. She jumps back, snarling, the stallion just cut her, HER! That cannot stand. Unfortunately, Rising is a schoalr, and Heart Throb is a pirate, muscular, experienced and nasty. Time to try diplomacy. "Hold on now, mister Heart Throb, no need to get violent. What are you playing at? We have no quarrel." Her horn glows, and she grips her two blades, just in case.

What are you playing at? We have no quarrel." Her horn glows, and she grips her two blades, just in case.

Heart-Throb grins quite contently while admiring the trickle of blood on his dagger. "Silly girl." drawing his tongue along the blade to taste the mare's blood while staring at her with a rather unsettling gaze. "I'm simply intent on having some fun now that you're unprotected." the stallion reaching back to draw his sabre - now equiped with sabre and dagger. "I suggest making this easy on yourself, love."
:growls, diplomacy never works like it should. How do other ponies do it? No time for that now, he matches her blade count, which is decidedly bad. Time for boasting, probably. "I am never without protection, Heart Throb. You will find that this will be anything but easy, if you insist on this foolishness." Amazingly keeping her bravado in the face of a very, very scary and obviously crazy stallion. This is like a nightmare, but she can't show that or it will get WORSE.

Heart-Throb begins slowly circling Rising-Chaos - seemingly undaunted by her blades. "How adorable - I'll make sure to mount those blades below your head when it's on my mantle." the crazed stallion lounging forward - intent on drawing Rising out; if she's foolish enough to attempt a strike she'll find herself in a world of trouble.
:may be a rookie, but is no fool. She is staying as far away from Heart Throb as she can. The blades are drawn now, have been for a while, and are held in front of her defensively. "I intend to make sure you never get the pleasure. Though you aren't walking away from this, Heart Throb." In truth, she doesn't stand a chance, but is looking for an opportunity to run.

Heart-Throb waves a hoof dismissively at Rising's threats. "Indeed. I intend to trot away." he steps in even closer - now close enough for Rising to strike were she daring and foolish enough. His cutlass held in hoof and dagger in the other. "Perhaps you should run. Give me the thrill of the hunt." there's a sudden flash as the stallion flings the dagger towards Rising - with any luck her magic won't be powerful enough to handle a third object.
\Not at that velocity, at least. Rising Chaos tries valiantly to intercept it, but fumbles it and the dagger hits her in the chest. She takes a step back, wincing at the pain. That's criuppled her badly now, time for plan B. The unicorn stomps the ground, making a puff of smoke. Seconds later, when the smoke clears, there's three of her, standing some meters back from where the smoke was, all looking confident and unwounded, all armed with two swords. The actual Rising Chaos is in the center. That was exhausting but, it's her best shot.

(OOC) Queen-Pegasus: Are the illusions affected by wind and rain? Or would it stick out that rain passes through?
ooc you would be able to tell if you looked hard enough
(OOC) Rising-Chaos: you would be able to tell if you looked hard enough

Heart-Throb stares quietly at the three mares before him - intently eyeing each. "Even if I can't tell which is - you'll bleed out eventually." his grin broadening as he slowly paces back and fourth in front of three. "Then I'll have my fun. But don't worry - it will be…slow, delightfully painful, and of course an experience to die for!"
:grolws back away form him, keep your distance and he won't be able to tell. She pulls the dagger ouch, hissing as she does so, who knew things like that could hurt? Thankfully, she keeps the presence of mind to mimic her action across all three illusions. "I don't intend to wait for that to happen." The six blade, only two of which are real, advances towards him, threatening him. Hopefully he gets the idea. The actual real ones are kept the furthest back, ready to intercept anything, perhaps he can exploit this caution.

From afar, to (Rising-Chaos, Queen-Pegasus): Stormdancer hears Rising may be calling for Pony Action Rescue soonish? >_>
p Stormdancer Queen Pegasus=it could be handy!
I don't recognize Pegasus.

To (Rising-Chaos, Stormdancer), Queen-Pegasus pages: Could be a good way for Storm not hate Queen as much.

Heart-Throb's pacing ceases as the mare(s) begin to approach. "Love - there is one thing you forgot to duplicate.." she stallion lunges forward, flying past the illusions with full intention on using the blunt of his blade to knock Rising flat on her flank. "The steam coming off your fresh wound!" If successful Heart-Throb should gain all the leverage needed to keep Rising from posing any more of a threat.
To (Rising-Chaos, Stormdancer), Queen-Pegasus pages: Join us?
From afar, to (Queen-Pegasus, Rising-Chaos): Stormdancer aws, Stormie doesn't hate- Well, okay, a little bit.
Stormdancer has arrived.
(OOC) Stormdancer ta-das!
:wasn't expecting that, she's supposed to be prepared for everything. She's on edge enough to leap away as much as she can, but gets a blow for her troubles, sending her tumbling. This is bad, very very bad. In fact, there are a very limited number of ways for this to get worse. The unicorn curses under her breath, time for plan C! As she gets back to her hooves, she sends a bright flare in to the sky, it's in her colours and burns bright in the darkness. Now to hope somepony sees it. In the mean time, she starts to get to her hooves and get a grip on the blades. "Help's on the way, you fool. Surrender now and I may be merciful."

ooc semi idle, brb
(OOC) Rising-Chaos: semi idle, brb

While Rising-Chaos does manage to fire off a flare - she has little time to gather her wits, blades, or footing as Heart-Throb is upon her with the tip of his blade pointed at the foolish mare's neck. "Help may come - but they shant find but a hint of what transpired here as we'll be long gone." the pointed tip nearing Rising's throat. "Come quietly and I may be merciful..oh who am I kidding - I'll skin you all the same." eyes going wide in a manner that clearly screams Crazy!
From afar, Spindrift is available any time tonight if you want to RP, but no pressure. Is ee you are busy already with other things.
p Spindrift=:will come to you after she's done getting cut up <3
Long distance to Spindrift: Rising-Chaos will come to you after she's done getting cut up <3
:chuckles grimly. "You wouldn't dare. Queen Pegasus would have your hide, and she is alive, you can trust me." She glares right at Heart Throb. "I will say this one last time, let me go." Meanwhile, she gathers what's left of her power for one last sneaky spell. Hopefully the mention of Queenie will throw off the pirate for long enough.

Heart-Throb shrugs non-chalantly. "Far as Queen knows I've run off with my tail between my legs like the rest of her crew." his grin broadening. "She'll be none the wiser." Rambling villian cliche - check! He flicks the tip of his sword against Rising's horn - ellicting a small spark as horn meets steel - that should leave a little mark! "Night night." The stallion draws his blade high.
(OOC) Stormdancer: … Where -is- this happening, anyway? >_>
(OOC) Queen-Pegasus: Road back towards Rising's. Dark, stormy - laterns are out.
(OOC) Stormdancer ooos. - This sounds like a good time to cut in! =D
*Clink* A pair of pale hooves press against the flat sides of Heart Throb's sword, holding it still. "Bonsoir." Stormdancer, hovering silently in the air above the mad stallion, looks down at him with forced calm, forehooves holding back his blade. Her rear hooves? Pulled back, then swiftly rushing towards the back of his head as she does a tight somersault in midair to both rip the weapon from his grip and blindside him right off the bat.

… A New Challenger Approaches!

Certainly Heart-Throb did not expect reinforcements this quickly - then again neither did Rising. The stallion grunts loudly as his blade is torn from his hooves and the force of the kick sends him flying through the air - landing in an undiginified pile of limp pony several yards away while his cutless lands several yards the opposite direction!
\OUCH! That didn't buy as much time as she wanted. She's just about to cast her spell when suddenly, a new pony. "I told you, fool. Help has arrived."S he really, really hopes she's right, because otherwise she's in a world of trouble. The fire spell is hastily converted to a retrest as she scrambles back to regain her footing.

Stormdancer flys down, getting between Rising and her attacker, wings flared aggressively. "Arcee! Kin ya run?" -One- kick's not going to take the stallion out of the fight, not unless her luck is -far- better than it has been. She's braced back in a fighting stance- But not following up on her early advantage, like more bloodthirsty ponies might. … Her drill instructor would be -so- disappointed in her right now.

Heart-Throb for all intents and purposes does appear to be down and out - of course due to poor lighting conditions there's no way to know for sure save for approaching; he is how-ever not moving and disarmed at the moment - of course typical pony logic dictates he flew the direction Rising-Chaos has to travel to get home.
:growls, she's MAD now. "You're implying I want to run, Stormdancer. Thank you for the timely intervention, but some scum needs to be taught a lesson." All three discarded blades float in to the air at her command, and she lights up the downed stallion. The light also serves to highlight the stab wound in her chest, and the look of mad rage on her face.

ooc yesgood!

Stormdancer looks back at Rising, pulling back from the mare in surprise. "Arcee? Ya seem ta be leakin'." Well, if he's not bouncing right back into the fight, maybe her luck's changed! And, well, a friend's been -stabbed-. This changes priorities. She reaches out a hoof to shake her shoulder. "'e ain't movin', ya are- Let's keep ya that way!"
(OOC) Stormdancer frowns. No stabbing until you clean up that mess, young lady! :(

The best part about concerned friends? They often block your view! The stallion realizes this opportunity and makes a hasty scramble towards the pair with full intent to knock them down - and maybe stab a pony in the process with yet another dagger he keeps on his body. If he's lucky they won't realize he's up and about until it's too late!
\The best part of not caring? Concerned friends don't slow you down at all. Rising Chaos growls and the three blades snap in to place in front of the charging pirate. "Freeze, or your next step will be the last thing you ever do." The unicorn shakes off Stormdancer's hoof and advances on Heart Throb, being careful to stay out of reach still. "Stormdancer, he attacked me. I am not going to forgive him that mistake, he dies tonight." There's nothing but deadly seriousness in her tone.

Warned by Rising's threats, Stormdancer pivots around, getting her eyes back on the pirate. Her voice is low, though, and directed not at him, but at the other mare. "Ya sure've that, Arcee? Ya reckon ya can kill a pony?" She's not getting in the way of any of the sharps being pointed about- -She- certainly has no love for the stallion! "Ye've said it 'fore, sure- But ya gonna go down th' same path's 'im?" A jerk of her head in the direction of Heart Throb, just in case there's any confusion on the subject.

Heart-Throb just chuckles as he stops in his tracks then begins to back-peddle "Sure thing love…" of course there's the matter of the other dagger he's holding, and the the other he's drawing from his belt. "Wonder how much more you can ta…" the stallion bumps into something - something enraged. "Heart-Throb - you insidious little maggot." a thicken crack fills the air as Queen clobbers the stallion upside the head - sending him tumbling into the muddy grass beside the road. The soaked pegasi known as Queen-Pegasus begins to approach Heart-Throb; snarling in manner that makes Rising look like a kitten by comparison. "I should have known you wouldn't leave after setting your eyes on something."
:is about to press the blades home, revenge is finally hewrs, she finally wins! "Just watch me, Stormdancer," she snarls, really meaning to do it. This really isn't the normal Rising Chaos talking. The appreance of Queen Pegasus sobers her up immediately though, and the fires of madness flicker and die in her eyes. The blades drop to the ground, the adrenaline leaving her system. "Or not." The unicorn looks down to the wound, blinks, the pain just now registering again. "Oh, ouch."

Stormdancer can't help but wince as Queenie lays on the iron hoof. That's as much sympathy as she shares, though! Let the pirates deal with each other- She's got a unicorn to support! And support she does, pressing herself against Rising's side, with a wing reaching over to help balance her. "I gotcha, I gotcha- Lean o'er this way, Arcee."

Queen stops and turns "Rising?" It couldn't be more obvious that she's concerned now that she realizes Rising's hurt. Queen often says concern is a weakness to be exploited, and it appears Heart-Throb made note of that as Queen 's moment of distration earn's her a dagger in the back while Heart-Throb scrambles to flee - running down the road to gain speed for flight. With an angered snarl Queen darts after the stallion - blood dribbling down her flank as she gives chase - seemingly undetoured by yet another injury.
Queen-Pegasus pages: Better stop her ^.- After all she's quite…tenacious
:doesn't have time for weakness. "I'm fine, my Queen." She actually yelps when Heart Throb stabs the mare, and is soon pelting after her. "Sorry Stormdancer, I'll be nise after this, okay?" is all she manages before she's off. She follows the enraged pegasus in to the darkness. "My Queen! Come back, it's not worth chasing him."

"- Ponyfeathers." Stormdancer joins in the not-so-merry chase, taking to the air to follow after the others. This was -not- the way she was expecting her night to go!

Queen moves with the speed and ferocity of a mare at full strength, and only slows when Rising-Chaos calls to her; that hasty pace slows to a trot - the pegasi standing tall as she watches Heart-Throb take to the air in the distance while fighting the whipping winds. The trail of blood makes it easy for Rising to find Queen who is slowly trotting back towards Rising and Stormdancer - her footing becoming a tad uneven as she nears. "You foolish little…
:slows down as well, looking down at the ground. "I'm sorry, my Queen. He attacked me while I was on the way home." She looks really ashamed, despite the wound in her chest. Rising sits down, not really sure what will happen. But whatever does happen, at least she will be sitting down, which is much more comfortable.

Stormdancer briefly arcs up after Heart Throb- But all things considered? She turns back rather quickly instead of following after an unstable, dangerously pointy stallion into a cold, dark, and stormy night with no backup and no particular plans. … She -does- have a brain, despite how little use it seems to get! Instead she hovers over Rising protectively, glaring at the pony whose fault this -obviously- is. "One've yer dogs slipped 'is leash, Patch?"
To (Queen-Pegasus, Rising-Chaos), Crescent pages: You guys up to anything in particular that Daisy would be able to partake in?

Queen stumbles a little as she nears Rising - the tenacious mare all but refusing to acknowledge the nasty wound in her back. Queen seems a tad perplexed. "I was concerned when you were running late - you must be more careful. The mare plants her flank a few feet from Rising's once she finds continuing forward is far more difficult when not blinded by rage. "You must be aware I…" she hushes. "Are you alright?" eye drifing down to Rising's wound. "You need to get home, get patched up." says the mare with the far more threatening wound. "Off you go. I'll be along shortly…" her attention darts to Stormdancer. "You're clearly behind the times." while she's not said it officially, she's all but discarded the previous crew in favor of something new. "A former underling - not fit for the future." she emphasizes. "I'll let your isolence slide this evening, but it'd serve you well to show respect. Perhaps you should discuss this with Rising?
To (Rising-Chaos, Crescent), Queen-Pegasus pages: Mmhmm - we should be back to Rising's in a few minutes.
From afar, to (Queen-Pegasus, Rising-Chaos): Crescent noddles, "Alright. Just lemme know when!"

:isn't about to have any of that! "I will keep that in mind, my queen. But first, you are wounded. I do believe I have promised to tend to you. hold still." She trots around to behind the larger mare, wincing at the sight of the wound. She does her best, pulling the dagger from the wound and casting a healing spell. "I'll see you at home then, my Queen." The unicorn starts to trot along the path towards home, the light from her horn is gone, she's exhausted.

Dryly, "-That- sounds f'miliar." Stormdancer flaps down to walk alongside the unicorn, offering her help in getting back to said home. "Ya got a real talent fer bringin' out th' worst'n ponies, Patch," she tosses back over her wings. Hey, the big mean mare's wounded, she can afford to be lippy!

Daisychain has arrived.

Queen hisses loudly as the dagger is yanked from her back with little warning - personally she would have advised against it for the moment. She waits until Rising and Stormdancer have trotted off into the distance before letting her shoulders sag and bringing a hoof to her chest - she's plenty of wounds from her previous cash landing - even if not all are visible. A few minutes pass before she gathers enough strength to trot back to the cabin. It's several more long minutes before Queen pushes open the door to Rising's cabin. "I was foolish to ever have thought you'd be fit for my crew." she huffs at Stormdancer - although it's liable some pony else may believe these words are intended for them.

Daisychain unfortunately wasn't aware of the Queen's injuries until it was too late. After all, if she had been there, maybe it would have happened…but oh…what if it still did? What if it was worse because she was there? It can be so stressful being a pony! She paces slowly back and forth to herself, trying to come up with something that she can do for the Queen other than be useless. She lets out a sigh and closes her eyes before trotting over as the Queen pokes into Rising's cabin, "My Queen…"
:bustles in past Daisychain. Apparently her stab wound isn't going to get any attention, but that's fine. She can get it herself. Rising moves in to the kitchen and grabs some of the bandages stored there, struggling to pull one around her chest. As Queen Pegasus comes in, she gets a smile. Even if the mare's words are angry, at least her protector is here now.

Stormdancer follows in with Rising, going to snatch the bandages from the unicorn's hooves. "Gotta disinfect't first, Arcee," she adds briskly. "Ya said ya started drinkin'- Got any 'igh proof layin' 'round?" Rising's wounds not getting any attention? Hardly! Despite what she might wish. Then Queenie gets back in while she's trying to help, and her line earns a snort. "E'en -if- I was willin' ta git a dye job ta match ya, what'd make ya think I'd join -yer- crew?" she shoots back towards the entrance. Bicker, bicker! Pause, as poor Daisy's presence, and actions, finally filter in. She looks down at Rising. "- She's got anothe' mare pantin' at 'er hooves, now?"
ooc Stormie <3 :P
(OOC) Rising-Chaos: Stormie <3 :P
(OOC) Stormdancer can't help it! >_>

Queen curiously looks at Daisychain - well that's not an unwelcome sight, but Queen certainly wasn't expecting her. She motions "Assist Rising-Chaos." she instructs the near-blind mare before pushing the door shut behind her and taking a seat to catch her breath - she utterly despises being this tattered and weak. "Only the dillusions of powerful medication, I assure you." she snarkily replies to Stormdancer. "Daisychain is simply a welcome addition to what promises to be a far more fetching crew then I've ever had the pleasure of commanding. The mare may not appear to have much to offer - but I believe otherwise." She shoots a glance towards Stormdancer. "Her polite nature is most welcome."
(OOC) Queen-Pegasus: I have about 20 minutes left in me, sorry ponies
ooc that's okay! we can wrap up here in a sec
(OOC) Rising-Chaos: that's okay! we can wrap up here in a sec
(OOC) Stormdancer gotchas!
Daisychain tilts her head to the side a little bit, "But my Queen…what…what about you? You're…hurt." It's probably not the best idea to question the Queen at the moment though considering the circumstances, "Um…right." She Walks over to Rising where she starts to do what she does best. Grabbing a few of the bandages, she ties a wrap together that allows tension over the larger wound, but allowing the rest of it to flex, "So…what happened?"
:rolls her eyes and cleans the wound to the best of her abilities. "Can you two stop bickering for once?" She shoots Stormdancer a look, not angry, but tired. "I am not 'panting at her hooves', I love her, learn the difference." Tiredness loosening her tongue enough to say the words. The mare winces as Daisychain applies the bandage, then moves towards the Queen with the rest of them and disinfectant. "One of Queen Pegasus' old crew members decided to have a little fun with me. I was lucky Queen Pegasus intervened." %r%r She starts cleaning her Queen's wound, looking worried. "Are you okay, my Queen?" She looks really worried, and rests a hoof on the mare's shoulder.

Stormdancer is shocked enough to let Daisy and Rising snatch her opportunity to help right out of her hooves, followed by a dark cloud drawing up over her head. (Well, figuratively. Pegasus or not, no weather allowed indoors!) "Yeah. Fine." Nevermind that if -she- hadn't been there… The blue mare stalks towards the entrance, now an exit. Queenie gets another glare, then whoosh- No more former assistant!

Queen is strangely quick to point out "Stormdancer arrived before I - she deserves the credit I'm afraid." her attention drifts towards Daisychain "Heart Throb has a passion for cutting other ponies, and takes the saying 'tan their hides' quite literally." the mare wincing as Rising begins to tend the wound on her back - right between the wings; it's almost as if somepony wans to keep her grounded. "What Rising says is true - there is no panting at the hooves…save for particular positions." managing to say something that is sure to embarrass Rising Chaos despite having no basis in reality. She even extends a hoof to try and stop Stormdancer's depature.
(OOC) Queen-Pegasus: Tsk tsk - we can wrap up with this set of poses, Storm is of course welcome to storm past anyways.
(OOC) Queen-Pegasus: Why can't I resist throwing inneundo in to embarrass Rising?
(OOC) Stormdancer: It's just so much fun, isn't it? =D
(OOC) Queen-Pegasus: Indeed. <3 Rising
ooc Q_Q
(OOC) Rising-Chaos: Q_Q
(OOC) Queen-Pegasus: Come now. You know the more I tease the more I <3
Daisychain certainly did not mean to offend Stormdancer. She was only doing what her Queen asked of her! But, as much as she wants to apologize, there are more important things to deal with. She takes some more of the bandages and ties them in a similar fashion to the ones she made for RC. She hands them to the aiding pony, "Here…this should help." Though she seems good at making the bandages, she still acts like she's not exactly sure what she should be doing. She pushes her glasses back up on her nose…it might be a bad time to ask about the goggles. After all, that's why she came!
Queen-Pegasus pages: Bandai is releasing an Aires MS action figure - I hope they re-stock as the pre-order is sold out =/
:winces in embarrassment. "Of course, Stormdancer saved my life, but that's nothing new. It seems my old friend saves my life every other week these days." She attempts a smile at the angry pegasus. "I really do owe her the world, after all she's done." Then BLUSH, Queen Pegasus embarrasses her again. Tired, Rising Chaos just sinks to the floor and more or less passes out. That's enough awake for today.

Ah, if only Stormdancer wasn't so hasty. She might have even considered some of the appeasements! Maybe. But no, not tonight. Better luck next time, pirate ponies-to-be!

Queen huffs as her words go unnoticed by the hasty, grumpy pony - despite speaking them in Storm's presence; perhaps the mare simply chose to ignore them. Queen snaps her hoove (however ponies do that) "You'll need to carry Rising upstairs, Daisy. I'm sure you can manage? Just put her on your back - tie her down or something, you're good at that." The taller mare glances towards the fireplace and the pile of pillows and blankets in front of it "Nevermind. Come by in the morning - and we can talk then. Lock the door on your way out." rushing the mare out the door so she can drag Rising-Chaos over to the 'nest' of pillows and blankets then settle down for the night.
