Spike tried for a long time to move some of the rocks himself. With tears streaming down his face, he struggling against the boulders, straining to push even one out of the way. He called Twilight’s name constantly, hoping desperately to hear something; even one little sign that she was alive on the other side of the rubble.
But there was nothing. All was still and silent.
Finally, Spike had to give up. He sat for a few minutes in shock, panting and staring at the pile of stones as he clutched the green jewel he had taken from the cave. Eventually, he stood, swallowing nervously before speaking.
“I…I dunno if you can hear me, Twilight, but I’m going to get help! Just…just keep calm and…” He sniffled, wiping his eyes before whispering “…and please be okay.” Then he turned and ran for the exit. The baby dragon crawled up out of the small hole in the ground and took off as fast as his little legs would carry him, still clutch

Princess Twilight Sparkle stepped out onto the balcony of her library tree-house home, yawing as she rubbed her eyes, only to smile as the morning greeted her with sunlight.
The young filly was still doing her best to adjust to life as one of the esteemed alicorn race. It was a lot to take in, but she was trying her hardest to do well and continue on with as normal as a life as possible. And today, that normality contained research.
Twilight turned away from the balcony and stepped back into her room, smiling when she laid eyes on the little purple figure curled up in a basket near her bed. Snoring rumbled quietly from the pile of blankets heaped over the basket, and a short tail hung out from the side.
Twilight gently lowered her head and nudged the lump in the blankets with her horn. “Spiiiiike,” she called softly, lifting a hoof and giving a light poke. “Time to wake up, okay? We have a big day ahead of us, and I’ll need your help.”
Shadows Calling Chapter 62Manteke stared down from the lofty perch he had set himself upon, watching the battle below.Shadows Calling Chapter 62 by Ventarix
His army had finally met the laguz one, and both had literally collided in battle. Dragons howled through the air, sending bolts of fire down upon the beasts below, while Feral laguz charged amidst their fellows, tearing warrior after warrior apart.
And bound by Manteke's side, forced to watch the chaos alongside the one he hated, was Kyrik, brutalized and beaten, blood dripping steadily from his little feline nose.
"Shall I join the fray, milord?"
Soul, newly recovered and back at Manteke's side, had been with him since the start of the fight, using her magic to control the feral ones she had converted from the rear lines. However, if she were on the field, she could contribute more to the fight...
Not that it was entirely needed. If the battle kept going as it had been, it would be a victory for the new rulers.
"Not yet, my dear, not yet." Manteke's voice was cool and collected, his red-maroo
Shadows Calling Chapter 61Wyr was nestled on Israel's back, and the group was finally heading home. The tired, frail little beorc was glad to being going back to the castle, even if it wasn't really his home. He counted every place where Israel was as his home, though.Shadows Calling Chapter 61 by Ventarix
Israel let out a soft trill and looked over his shoulder at Wyr, then further back to view Tibarn and his retainers and Wil and Void. Wil was still carrying Whispin and Adrian on his wyvern, and neither had moved much.
"Are we close?" the raven called back to the others. Janaff cawed a reply.
"We're close. I can see it...uh-oh."
The hawk offered nothing more, but he did pick up the pace quite a bit.
The castle was destroyed.
Just like the hawk one, the raven fortress had fallen as well. Dead and dying ravens lay scattered, and to their shock, Naesala was one of them. Only Leanne knew how it had happened; a dragon had tried to attack her and Naesala had engaged it in full combat without thinking.
"Easy, easy, hold still," Meghan said, kneeling ove
Shadows Calling Chapter 60Naesala leaned back in his chair, exhaling as he looked out the window.Shadows Calling Chapter 60 by Ventarix
He wished Tibarn would hurry up and return already. The war was constantly shifting, and he wanted to figure out which side was currently winning.
With many of the others gone, there weren't many people for Leanne to speak with. Not even her brother.
Not even her brother.
She doubted she'd get another free moment when Tibarn, her brother, and the rest returned, so she used her time now to find Naesala.
As always, it did not take her too long - she was accustomed to finding him in his room now. She knocked gently on the door, waiting for him to answer.
The raven leaned his chair on its back two legs, not lifting his gaze to the door, instead keeping it focused on the papers in front of him. "Come in," he called, rocking back and forth lightly on his chair's legs. "Just finishing up some things. If only Tibarn would hurry his tail-feathers up, I would be able to sleep again..."
Leanne peered in with a concerne
Shadows Calling Chapter 59Leanne was currently standing on a balcony. She glanced down at the bandages wrapped around her arms and sighed, wishing she were not so fragile. Soul's fire spell had nearly seared her skin from her arms; but Meghan's healing spells were powerful, and she was well on to the way to recovering.Shadows Calling Chapter 59 by Ventarix
Reyson was sitting carefully on a chair nearby, one wing wrapped so tightly that it made his remaining feathers crumple. But he didn't care; he merely hoped to regain the use of it, and that his bare flesh would soon have feathers again.
Both he and his sister jumped as Ike threw open the door, panting. "S...Serenes!" he gasped.
Leanne turned to Ike with worry in her gaze. "He should not be up," she said, and tried to direct the commander over to a bed. "Please, sit..." she said.
Mist trailed after Ike. She had remained inconspicuous as her brother interrogated Soul, but now spoke up again. "Ike, please, at least sit down, you'll exhaust yourself...let me try and heal you some more.
Shadows Calling Chapter 58"So they have her."Shadows Calling Chapter 58 by Ventarix
Manteke placed the length of the dungeon cells, casting furious glances at Flare, who was standing rigidly by, his gaze on the ceiling.
"Yes, my lord. Soul was captured," the sword-wielder answered.
Manteke paced again, turning sharply at the end and coming back, passing Addar and Kyrik, the latter of whom was currently limp in his friend's arms, his condition worsening by the day. The longer those horrible chains were on him, the weaker he seemed to grow.
Addar kept quiet as his father stalked back and forth like an angry beast; his son shuddered at the expression on his father's face. Manteke was angry, and that never ended well for anyone. The boy tried to keep himself under the radar as Flare made the report, and focused much of his attention on the frail little cat in his arms. Addar stroked his bonded's head, holding him close, gently. His eyes flicked up to watch Manteke nervously every few seconds, though, no matter how he tried to distract himself with Kyri

~ If you'd like to roleplay with me, send me a note with a link to your character and their bio/information. I will not go look for the characters myself.
~ My answer length varies. Sometimes it might be a paragraph, another time it might be a few sentences. I generally give decent length replies.
~ I refuse sentences like - *i lulz n pokes u in teh face* That is an instant No Continuation. I like roleplays that are sort of like how a book is written.

Please don't let these rules bother you too much. I'm mostly only concerned for the language. xD I'm really very fun to roleplay with.

So, some of you may have noticed that I'm retrying my hand at writing a MLP fanfic. Trial by Fire: The Lost Alicorn is quite different from my first story. You might have realized that. But I'm going to clarify a few things real quick.
I am going to try to upload a chapter every Monday, but most likely, this won't happen on schedule. I've vowed to make sure that this story is written to the best of my ability, so if I force a chapter on a day when I'm not feeling in the MLP mood, it'll be crappy, and I don't want that. Usually, I feel quite MLP after watching an episode of it, so that might help.
Another note is that the character Blindside has been removed from TbF, replaced with a new creation called the Shadow Stallion. So if anyone remembered/liked Blindside and his additions to the story, don't expect him to show up. He wasn't that great anyways. :T
Soooooooo. Yeah. The end?
