How on earth are we already on part 30? Well I guess it's been about a year or so (give or take a few months) since I came up with this, but it's still quite a huge accomplishment. Anyways, here's the last RP comment form part 29-
From the pine needle coated ground, Emeraldflame snorted. "And I thought I was sentimental! And although I like the name Nightmoon, here's why I said Nightlight at first. I thought that in the dark time of our captivity, he was a light- a spot of happiness." She paused, then added, "I'd add a modest shrug right there, but in light of the situation, I can't."
(I don't remember where you were last, but sure. Training basically finished up for the day, and it will be a free day tomorrow. A lot of the trainees decided to eat in the large training field before going to sleep. Stormglade, the most well-known bully, was picking on Magicpetal again. Emberblaze tackled him and the two were sparring, about to fight, but Horizongold entered the fray. He quickly shoved Stormglade away onto a big pile of leaves and asked Emberblaze what had been happening. Emberblaze was interrupted by Magicpetal, who explained. When Skywing and Starsummer arrived, the watching trainees left and Horizongold let Magicpetal decide Stormglade's punishment. She wanted him to confess to his mother that he had been bullying many pegasi, but it was revealed that Stormglade's mother had been killed wen Glacier Herd overtook Ice Herd – which was where he was born. Now they're asking why he was bullying her and the twins, Breezebell and Redmoon, are watching; while they are thinking that they should keep going on about this.)
(Umm... I hate to do this to y'all again, but... could some one give me a quick recap? Also, I'm going to make part 31 real quick)
( Im gonna go read my book before bed. See ya later! :D )
She pricked her ears. They were being quite harsh to this colt. Breezebell almost thought for a moment that Starsummer was being overprotective. But she knew what it felt like to be bullied. Her and Magcipetal were around the same size, Breezebell slightly taller. Not by much, but everyone had always picked on Magicpetal. The triplets were actually older than the twins. She looked at Stormglade and twisted her ears.
She didn't see the point of them still going on about this. They should've just dropped it. Redmoon shifted to lean more on her left side than her right. Then she decided to voice a bit of her opinion. "Uh... Mrs. Starsummer.. (not sure what their last name is...)... If you don't mind me saying so, but if you tell Stormglade's father, he will object. At the moment, it seems that his father does not seem to care so much, so if you tell them off, are you sure that will make the situation any better? What if, instead of stopping Stormglade, he does something else?"
"Like I said, she's the smallest filly in the herd. It's kinda hard not to make her a target." he mumbled.
Starsummer growled softly and pinned her ears.
Stormglade swallowed and backed down. Starsummer shook her head. "That still doesn't explain my question. Why do you bully? It's not just Magicpetal, I've seen you bully other yearlings who are smaller than you. Just because your sad or angry doesn't mean you get to take it out on some one else."
Stormglade looked at his hooves. "I look around and everyone looks so happy. So I figured, if I can't be happy...why should anyone else? It's not fair...." he said
Starsummer thought of what to say. "Well, I hope you know that we are still going to announce this to your father and tell him what you've done." she said.
She felt sorry for the colt. She had also suffered the loss of a parent. She dipped her head to graze. Her and Redmoon would have to go to their mother after twilight.
(Aww!!!! Ok bye!!!)
( Oh okay. Good night and incase I don't see ya, good morning, good evening, and another goodnight :) )
Horizongold drew in a breath sharply. "That's why you've resorted to bullying? I had no idea." For a moment, he almost felt sorry for the colt, but the facts were unavoidable. "If you're angry with Glacier Herd for that, I completely understand. But if that's the reason you began bullying, Magicpetal doesn't make sense as a target. Her parents are from Valley Herd, so what do they have to do with your mother?"
(Okay, NOW I have to go.)
She wasn't surprised that Stormglade had smacked her wing away, but she was surprised that it had hurt. She shook her wing out until the pain was gone and sighed.
She pricked on ear when Horizongold had mentioned punishment to Stormglade, and even though she was on no one's side, she did not believe Stormglade should be the only one punished. Relief gave her one moment of satisfaction that he wasn't going to be punished. Her and her sister stood by waiting for their friends to be out of this kind of 'court' thing.
Magicpetal glanced up at her mother. "Uhhh.." After some encouraging nods from Starsummer, she looked up and straight at Stormglade. "...I want an apology, it want Stormglade to swear that he leaves my family alone, and I want to tell his family-particularly his mother-all the horrible names he called me." Stormglade's face suddenly fell, but he tried not to show it too much. "But as for punishments? I don't want anyone to be punished, more like they have heavy consequences. Whatever you see fit." she said, not exactly knowing what sort of punishment to give him.
She narrowed her eyes at the colt and his sudden change in mood made her suspicious. "What is your mother's name?" She asked him.
"Oceanbreath." he said, plainly "But, you won't be able to find her. She was killed in the war against Ice herd-my herd. Glacier herd killed her." he said, his eyes turning hard. Magicpetal inhaled gently and stepped behind Starsummer.
She looked unfazed by this news. "Do you have a father? If so, what's his name?"
Stormglade lowered his eyes and nodded vaguely. "Freezebolt."
(gtg pretty soon)
The three of them approached Skywing and Stormglade. Horizongold spoke first, as was fitting. "Stormglade," he said, "I regret any potential injury I may have caused." He paused and his eyes grew even more intense, if that were possible. "That is NOT to say that I apologize for what I did. I have told you numerous times that bullying is not tolerated whatsoever in this program. I have warned you that there will be consequences." He held up a wing as Stormglade began to make excuses. "I do not want to hear it. Now, Magicpetal, the stage is yours."
Magicpetal drew level with him, looking baffled. Horizongold lay her confusion to rest. "If you were guaranteed not to have any retribution whatsoever, how would you like to see him punished?" he asked.
"I believe so, Starsummer," Skywing replied. "Stormglade here is describing a few alarmingly detailed ways to get back at Horizongold, so I'd say he's enraged but intact."
Meanwhile, Horizongold nodded, trying to stamp down his feelings towards the triplets. He now realized he had acted rather rashly in his way of dealing with the situation. He was determined not to make the same mistake twice. "I see," said the liver chestnut. "Emberblaze, you're getting off with a warning. But one more chance – I will be telling your instructors – and you'll be punished. I understand what you were doing. Stormglade, on the other wing, is facing ramifications." He reshuffled his wings angrily. "You three, go somewhere out of earshot. No, scratch that. Emberblaze and Goldenstream, please leave. Magicpetal, stay here. You too, Starsummer."
Emberblaze he flicked his ears at the sounds of wingbeats and he looked down to see his mother, fluttering her wings as she landed. "Is everyone alright?" she asked, looking inquisitively at each of her foals. When none of them answered she looked at Redmoon, Breezebell, and Horizongold. The circle that had formed was still there and this annoyed Starsummer. "Alright! When I get to the count of 5, I want every yearling that wasn't involved in this incident to back away!" she barked, flaring her wings. "1.....2....3.....4..." Most of the young pegasi had left as soon as Starsummer landed, but the few who had remained, scurried off as she began her count off. "There! That's better." she said, then turned back to her foals, and cocked one ear, awaiting an answer.
Magicpetal had stepped forward. "You shouldn't be asking Emberblaze the question. I-uh....I was the first one released from training. I wanted to speak with my brother and sister, so I decided to go look for them among the hoard of yearlings swarming into the valley to graze." She explained. "While I was looking for my siblings, I heard Stormglade come up behind me and he started making fun of me...again." She decided to leave out the part where Stormglade mentioned Horizongold as her boyfriend. "I didn't care what he was saying...I just wanted him to stop. I turned around to face him, but he wasn't there. That's when Emberblaze intervened. He had tackled Stormglade to protect me." She explained, looking down the entire time.
Goldenstream nuzzled Magicpetal. "What exactly did he say?" she asked, knowing that whatever he said had made an impact on Magicpetal. "It....it doesn't matter." she mumbled. "It was in the past." Goldenstream hugged Magicpetal with her wings and brushed the forelock out of her eyes.
Emberblaze didn't make eye contact with Redmoon. He was too ashamed, but when Magicpetal finished her explanation he spoke up. "I shouldn't have challenged him. But, please, you have to understand why... There was a bully making fun of my sister. I wouldn't just stand around and let her get picked on by someone who has a bark worse than his bite." he said, lowering his head, pondering what he would tell his mother.
Stormglade grunted and picked his head up. He was shocked to see a yearling filly standing over him, extending her wing down to him. "No. I'm fine." he snapped, shoving her wing away from him. He stood up and shook the leaves out of his mane. He glared at Horizongold and Emberblaze, then turned to face Skywing.
Horizongold did, however, make sure that Stormglade was not injured. Thankfully, he wasn't, and was now being restrained and talking to Skywing, who had come over to deal with the situation.
She looked up at the slowly descending sun. Twilight was coming fast. Then, remembering Horizongold's question, glanced at Emberblaze, wanting to know what he thought had happened.
She slowly snuck away and twoards Stormglade who was on the ground. She looked down at him and whispered, "need somehelp?" She extended on wing.
Horizongold noticed the anger on Redmoon's face, but elected not to explain his reasons. He was a commander now, to a small degree. Generally speaking, instructors should not have any sort of challenge to their superiority over the trainees.
She jolted backward when Horizongold landed, and felt a jolt of fury when he smacked Stormglade in the chest with his wing. She pinned her ears and glared at Horizongold, of which his methods she did not approve of. The point was to prevent any problem, but instead Horizongold had created one.
When Horizongold smacked Stormglade in the chest she felt some satisfaction, but was immediately replaced with guilt at the feeling. Breezebell backed up a little bit and stood more close to her sister, who seemed quite unhappy.
