Not every honoree does their work in the light of the day, and in the open air of common discourse. There are those who stand ever vigilant. Those who hunt down Stinky Bandits, and threats to the common safety. Those who might just manage to dislike Changelings even more than Merriweather, which is a feat in and of itself. Today’s honoree does all these things, and also manages to try to find time to slake her unending thirst for Ms. Sweet Cream.
This batwinged badass works herself to the bone all Sam-Fisher-Style; when she’s not being plagued by the piles and piles and piles of paperwork. At least the paperwork that she can’t foist off onto Adamant and Westwood.~
This drink takes into account Nath’s particular predilection of feeding, with the Grenadine standing in for… other humors. The Fruit both represents her Bat-ness, and turns the beverage into a Pineapple Upside-Down martini. The overall flavor represents Nath’s love for cakes… and her love for a particular Canterlot Baker.~
I can’t wait to see as many of you as I can at Bronycon, August 6-9!
(( Been awhile since Wild’s tangled with the law, so here he is having a good ol’ fashioned standoff with Nathariel of Princess Luna’s Night Vanguard! ))
(( Dunno if you guys know of the NightVanguard tumblr, but the owner is an extremely talented artist and storyteller who needs more attention. Their artwork and characters are beautifully crafted and illustrated. I’ve been an admirer of their work since they started: you should be too! ))
Nath : First off, our commanding officer, during our military service, was an earth pony, and no magic or air tricks could save us from getting our butts kicked … even after we got promoted Captains. He personaly trained Goliath, to help him leash his strength.
Now, I’m not from Equestria, but as soon as I’ve learn to read pony, I’ve consult history volumes telling about the Dark Age, the “Before Equestria”, when ponies couldn’t get along, and increasing conflicts led to the loss of Ponylands. Earth ponies knew that they would be the easiest target for the two other factions, so they quickly adapt and use their ingenuity and creativity to build devices that would give them more than a chance to fight on equal terms with pegasus and unicorns alike. From highly trained warriors to master engineers machinery and anti-magic specialists (Unicorn Hunters), earth ponies never backed down. We apparently owe them some devices that we still use nowadays.
Finaly, even if it’s not an exemple that I would like to share, one of the main threats for the kingdom today comes from no one else than an Earth pony … WildCard …
Unique. Armor built for air combat and lightning assault. The main frame is a modified flying suit that includes several connections intended to hold protection plates still while preserving much of the movements possibility. The communicator is implanted in the left shoulder pad. Razor twin blades (hand blades) are designed for slashing rather than piercing and are reinforced with black composite iron. Gloves are equiped with railed blades (RB)
The helmet design is not final, but you get how it works ~
Lilly : I tried to reproduce this bat syndrom, see if it can enhance the actual seal we’re using for night guards … it’s mostly a failure, subjects seem to be blinded by light, even if echolocation is hardly taking over, and they have a … serious obsession issue with apples at some point.
[ I tried so hard, and got so faaar, but in the end, I again fail at SC hair dammit ! >: / eheh. ]
Quick little picture :p, I was listing to this song and it reminded me of those two ~
“ Standing here I realize you were just like me Trying to make history But who’s to judge The right from wrong When our guard is down I think we’ll both agree Violence breeds violence But in the end it has to be this way
I’ve cut my own path You’ve followed your wrath But maybe we’re both the same The world as turned And so many have burned But nobody is to blame It’s tearing across this barren wasted land I feel new life could be born Beneath the blood stained sand ”
