Thundertail gasped at the beautiful scenery. "Were here." "Look there's that scorched pit you were talking about." She pointed with her wing. When they landed, both siblings sniffed the ash. "I don't smell Elmglade. And I don't see a way to get to Anok 2." "Anok 2?" She snorted. Thundertail balked at her. "That bad?" "Yup." She nickered with no regrets. The two stood there waiting, and it soon became silly. "Maybe it was just a dream Thundertail." Iceblaze said. "No, if it was this same exact scorched pit wouldn't be here." "Maybe you've been here before and remembered or something." Iceblaze thought aloud. Thundertail let his ear droop. "Yeah, let's head back." She agreed and flexed her wings when the ground rumbled making her lose her balance. Thundertail listened, unable to move. Then, a huge supernatural mini-hurricane appeared out of nowhere. "RUN!" He brayed. They kicked off but not before they were sucked in. The siblings swirled around in circles, the air so violent they couldn't breath. But the wierd thing was this hurricane didn't look normal. When he looked below him he saw what looked like outer-space. But how can that be? Space was held past the jet-streams, not encased in a twister. Little by little they swirled closer to the middle. And views of everything that accured in their history swirled with them from the beginning. Nightwing leaving Spiderwing alive. The birth of Star. When Star received the starfire. The leaving of Echofrost, Hazelwind, Dewberry, and the rest of the chosen pegasi. The defeat of Nightwing. The birth of Moonheart. When Moonheart risen her name in the act of defeating Riversun in a way no one would think. Hiding the starfire matter. Elmglade taking the black foal's starfire. The black foals, Brackentail, and Morningleaf leaving Anok. Stormflight became captain. And then in zoomed back to them. Iceblaze wrapped her wings around his and Thundertail wrapped his wings around hers and they both shut their eyes. As quick as the images were sucked into the core, they to were sucked in. The hurricane immidiatly vanished, and the meadow became peaceful again, but there was no sign of the two pegasi.
So, not to point finger (or wings) at anyone, but it's become quite a common thing for there to be multiple OCs that have the same name. Yes, it's not exactly a HUGE problem, but still, on one likes being told that someone else has already used a certain name -- especially when you put a lot of thought into it. Well, it's actually easer then you might think to figure out if a name has already been used: just use the search option. Right below the icon you click to enter the MB (it says 'MESSAGE BOARD' on it), there's a little box that says search. Whenever you create a new OC, just type the name into the box, wait a few seconds, and see if the name has been mentioned before. Ta da! No more repeated names.
