    After a beautifully done Hearth’s warming pageant, a party was planned for the residents of Ponyville and nearby areas for those who weren't invited to the Crystal Empires huge event.

    The day had been quite cold despite the Pegasus ponies clearing the sky and the sun shining, and with the night drawing in it was starting to get colder. But on the upside the stars were twinkling and the moon was shining brightly as the time was drawing near for the ponies to start heading towards the Hearth’s Warming Extravaganza.

    Though unknowingly to the ponies the location wasn't in a place they had seen before...


    "I'm glad that Midnight has kept some connections from our travels. If it wasn't for the help of some of the more magical characters then this wouldn't have been possible"

    Cascade thought to herself as she emptied a bag filled with all sorts of different coloured and shaped pendants into a box that sat infront of a nearby tree.

    "I still can't believe that the elderly unicorn we met all that time ago was still able to create these."

    She stared into the pale blue gem that lay ontop of the pile.

    "And being able to seal a small flickering flame within them, still amazes me."

    Looking towards the lights coming from Ponyville and seeing one or 2 start to go out, she looked towards the trail leading up to where she was standing.

    "Seems like its time to light the poles"

    She spread her wings and took off towards each pole. She unleashed a small coloured flame lighting and floating above each of them one by one and then left a small harmless flame lighting up above where a sign was going to be put. With the poles lit Cascade turned and flew back. Her black scales glistening in the slowly increasing moonlight and the final light of the setting sun.

    These should have been put up sooner.

    Entrance covered by foliage.

    “Heh, guess it’s time to get things a-rollin’”
    Heartstoker walked down the dirt path that lead to the party, heading away from it with a sign carried on her back. As she walked, the coloured flames that had been set up beside the path illuminated her eyes in different hues, mimicking the oranges and purples of the evening sky. Once she reached the bottom of the hill, Heartstoker saw the place she was looking for. In the air floated another bright fire, much the same as the ones scattered along the path. This one was a vibrant orange, and marked the area the sign was meant to occupy. She took the sign from her back and into her front hooves, and after first stabilising herself and leaning back she drove it down into the ground. With a crunch, it sunk into the cold, dry earth, and after making sure it would stay upright and beneath the flame she stepped back to look at her work.


    “Lookin’ good! Heh.”
    The sign was arrow-shaped, and it pointed towards the venue at which the event would take place, a large wooded area fashioned into a circular structure, complete with bar, entertainment, and other facilities. In a short while, ponies would begin to arrive and commence partying, and Heartstoker had no idea what to expect. Her instructions had been to promote the party, set things up initially, and then generally ensure things went smoothly. Satisfied that all outside preparations had been completed, she hurried back to the venue to await the arrival of the first guests.

    Prismatic Watched the Red Mare rush back to the building. After double checking his Top Hat was upright and his monocle was steady he trotted along the path.
    If Dapper could defined, Prismatic was it. His tailcoat was finer than ever and as he steadily trotted along he gazed at the shining beacons and nodded approvingly.
    A little notebook emerged from his front pocket and with telekinesis he jotted down a few notes and continued onwards.

    It was not long before he approached what was presumably the entrance; A large sheet of branches and leaves with a small box of glowing gems at the side.
    A sign was left labelled 'Please take a pendant' and within a moments notice he had a purple pendant wrapped around his neck.
    He then nervously peered inside and after clearing his throat murmured: "Hello?"

    Having arrived back at the venue, Heartstoker went to make herself a drink. Approaching the bar, in front of a wall lined with bottles of many sizes and colours, she looked for the bartender.

    “Uhh.. anypony there?”
    There was no response. ‘Huh, I could’ve sworn he was here just a second ago.. ah well, s’all free anyway!’ With that thought, Heartstoker leaned over the bar to grab herself a drink, and after a few moments heard a quiet voice coming from the entrance.
    "Hello?"
    She turned around as she replied.

    “HI THERE! Welcome to the Hearth’s Warming.. Extravaganza!”
    As Heartstoker said this, she couldn’t help but notice the manner of his attire. ‘Top hat.. monocle.. is that a pocket watch in his pocket? Heh, this is one fancy pony..’ Realising she had been staring vacantly as she thought this, Heartstoker shook her head to snap out of it.

    “So yeah, come on in! We got food, we got drinks, we got music…”
    She motioned towards things as she listed them, walking back to the centre of the building to grab the drink she was after.

    As you’ve already seen from Prismatic’s post, creativity is encouraged in this thread! Feel free to let your artsy side loose and draw anything interesting you may want to, whether it’s a scene you’re involved in, someone else has posted about, or anything else that seems like fun!

    “So yeah, come on in! We got food, we got drinks, we got music…” "Spectacular!" Prismatic grabs Heartstoker by the hoof and shakes it vigorously.
    "Tis a pleasure to be here though I must inquire good sir, who's organising this here event?" Prismatic asks completely unaware of the error he has made...

    Heartstoker shook Prismatic’s hoof, and was about to introduce herself when he continued to speak.

    "Tis a pleasure to be here though I must inquire good sir, who's organising this here event?"

    “Oh, well that would b-”
    She froze in place before finishing the sentence, staring straight ahead in a moment of sudden realisation. In her mind, Prismatic’s words played over in her head.

    “though I must inquire good sir, who's organising this here event?”
    “though I must inquire good sir"
    "good sir"
    "sir.. sir.. sir.. sir.."

    “Wh- wha..”
    Her facial expression changed into something less friendly, her right eye twitching repeatedly as her smile turned more toothy and ominous. In her past, Heartstoker frequently disguised herself as a stallion for various reasons, but that was long behind her now. Back then she went through a lot of effort to do so, and since she stopped she hadn’t received a single comment on her voice or appearance until now.

    “I’m.. I..”
    Fortunately, Heartstoker was an extremely patient pony and managed to regain her composure quickly.

    “Yes! Yeah, uhm, indeed! Heh..”
    She had forgotten the original response and was mumbling, but she did her best to return her face to a normal expression, bringing back her smile in the hopes Prismatic would realise his mistake.

    Electron stared at the multiple lit beacons, a light hoof tapped him and pushed him on.
    "...Listen, I don't really want to go.... M-maybe we could just go...... home?"
    The hoof tapped him harder and gave a obvious point to the entrance, Electron sighed deeply and slowly approached the entrance, this wasn't the day for him. This was the last place he wanted to be. Still he slowly approached neared the entrance, with his head down, he looked at the box which had multiple pendants inside it. They all looked fabulous, he picked out the pendant that most attracted him, a green one shaped slightly closely to a heart shape. He looked at it and his mood slightly raised a little.
    "Heh-heh, this night won't be a complete failure."
    He turned to the entrance, he appeared to be fashionably late, not much was happening and it looked like last-moment changers, the only real thing that could be related to a "Celebration" was two ponies socialising. Still, he blushed and moved around quickly, really wishing he wasn't here, he just looked around the entrance shyly and gave a quick...
    "Uh-uh.......heeyy........"

    “Yes! Yeah, uhm, indeed! Heh..” "Ah, erm. Oh my, I'm so sincerely sorry! I..." Prismatic Rubs the back of his neck nervously before profusely apologizing.
    "Listen, er, how about... A drink! He offered a weak smile and gestured to head inside.

    Cascade shook herself a little as she walked through the entrance

    Dang its chilly outside tonight, wonder if Midnight has made sure everything is set up on the stage yet?

    Her attention was quickly drawn to Heartstoker looking a little flustered speaking to a unicorn stallion who seemed very smart attire wise.

    "Seems like Heartstoker has made a friend" Cascade smiled to herself.

    She glanced to her left slightly and noticed another unicorn stallion looking a little bit nervous in this new environment.

    "Hi there sir, I see you chose a beautiful green pendant. It really suits you"

    ----------------------------------------
    While Cascade and Heartstoker were getting aquainted with the 2 guests, Midnight was busy sorting out the last bit of cabling that seemed to have gotten disconnected. A couple of ponies catching them as they moved the food to the buffet table across the otherside of the wooded clearing couldn't be helped.

    "I'm so not cut out for the electrical side of things, wish the DJ hadn't said he was gonna be late but what can you do but improvise." Midnight said to himself as he connected the last cable back into the socket.

    "Seems like ponies are starting to arrive, sure it's only a couple now but hopefully more will arrive soon. Time to get some music playing."

    A quick flap of his wings and Midnight was stood behind the console he remembered that the DJ had left some CD's and records in a box near some speakers. Picking one random CD out he placed it into the player and the music started.

    A bit clubby for my tastes but it'll do for now. I'll turn the volume up once more ponies arrive.

    Lightning Flash yawned.
    It was the yawn of not the immensely weary however, no, instead the yawn of the bored. A Pegasus, such as himself, that thrived on activity was not at home with the calm evening that had settled gently over the top of Ponyville. Instead he was longing for a spark, something to ignite the dull, sun bleached evening. As his wings once again pushed against the cool evening air he caught the twinkle of light from below and a flutter of voices rising on the thermals.

    Now intrigued he adjusted his flight feathers and swept closer to the ground. Hovering above the frost flecked earth the navy blue Pegasi observed a well lit building that streamed forth a warm, welcoming light. As he touched down he saw the door dart open and a stallion nervously shuffle inside, following the other ponies lead he too nudged the door open with a hoof and brazenly trotted inwards with wings still fully outstretched as if to catch the very essence of the gathering.

    Eiro sighed as she was slowly tugged by her tail along the cold floor to the event that was about to take place truthfully she didn't want to be there although earlier in the month she lost a bet with one of her friends and he decided that she should attend this event feeling she needed to join in with more social events, it wasnt so much the event that she was annoyed about but being all prettied up with her mane brushed and neatened, she hated looking like this though was thankful it was very rare she ever had to, she only wished that she never agreed to that bet that way she could have probably attended with a more casual look she was just relieved she didn't have to wear some fancy outfit but instead got to wear her red and white jacket.
    "ugh... you know i wouldn't have minded so much if you didn't make me look like this" Eiro frowned at her friend.

    "aww come on you look nice" he responded with a chuckle.

    "thats just the problem" she said standing up once they reached the entrance.

    "Hi there sir, I see you chose a beautiful green pendant. It really suits you."
    "Oh, really? well, uh-uh, thanks."
    Electron blushed down a little, he still felt extremely out-of-place.
    "I al-also love your amulet too."
    Electron horn vibrated a little, something told him that the amulet wasn't just there for decoration.
    "Well, uh-uh, anyway I'm E-Electron, your name? Is there anything to do here?"

    "Thanks. I've had this a while. My name is Cascade, and if you want things to do then there is plenty of food if your hungry. Music is playing though looking at Midnight over there he's keeping the volume low till more ponies arrive"

    She shook her head and the smile she already had spread across her maw widened as she remembered the 1st time Midnight entered a club and heard the music. He wasn't a happy pony.

    "Relax and have something to eat and drink. I'll go and find one of the waiters and they will happily serve you a drink at the bar if you would like one. Alcoholic, non alcoholic and if you are feeling cold after your trip up here there is hot drinks too."

    A rustling outside had caught her attention as she realised that more ponies were starting to arrive.

    "Seems you won't be alone for long."

    --------------------------------
    Midnight had finished sorting a bunch of disks and having them ready to start playing should it be needed, when he looked up and saw Cascade shaking her head while stood next to a unicorn his only thought was. What have I done this time to make her smile and respond like that?

    He then saw her perk up and look towards the entrance.

    Well looks like more guests are arriving better crank the music up a bit more.

    Turning the dial to increase the volume of the music a little more, he then started to trot off the stage and towards where ponies were starting to enter.

    "Hmm.. I don't think being all black would be a smart idea for a cheerful party. Time for some colour."

    Midnight said to himself as his mane, wings and tail started to change colour. Yes it would make him stand out alot but there was nothing wrong with that, a flowing river of various colours began to travel from the hair on his head down to the tip of his tail.

    "That should do it"

    The 1st pony to start to come through the door was a navy blue pegasus.

    "Hi there" Midnight said "Great to see you have made it to the party. I see you are missing something though, follow me and we shall get you your gift"

    Eiro began to walk to the door not noticing the box of pendents but before she entered she heard her friend call to her "hey catch" she turned round to find a green pendant come flying at her quickly she caught it round her right hoof "dont want you being rude now" he laughed before taking of heading home to look after his brother, Eiro looked at the pendant not really sure what its purpose was, because she already wore a neckless she slid the pendant up her right leg and fastened it tight so it wouldn't fall off.
    once her friend had also gotten out of sight she shook her head to try and give her mane a more casual appearance "he really thought i would leave my mane like that" she chuckled before turning back round misjudging her distance from the door causing her to smack her head with a loud thud "ouch... darn it" she winced as she nudged the door open with her side and walked in.

    Heartstoker snapped out of her daze that she had once again fallen into, realising that in what seemed like a very short space of time several new ponies had arrived.
    "Listen, er, how about... A drink!” The comment returned Heartstoker’s attention to Prismatic.
    “Oh um, of course! A drink sounds great, that’s just what I was after. Heh..” As she said this, Heartstoker tried to make her voice as feminine as possible, so as not to be mistaken for a stallion again. As she began to make her way to the bar once more, with Prismatic following as far as she knew, Heartstoker overheard Midnight mention the pendants outside the door. Everypony was welcome to take one, but she realised she did not even have her own. Making a mental note to pick one up when she got the chance, Heartstoker once more took a seat at the bar and looked around for a bartender, waiter, anypony who could get her a drink.

    Prismatic followed Heartstoker into the party, feeling terrible for his misjudgement. However he heard a thud behind him and turned to see a coal black mare rubbing her head.
    He immediatly approached and asked "Are you ok there dear girl? I nearly felt that bump!"

    Rumulus entered the venue from the side, carrying 3 crates on his back, one atop the other, wobbling with each step he took. His neck was strained and pointed towards the floor muttering under his breath with each step.

    "Goram kids, usles...'Yes Mr Rumulus, I'll be there sharpish to help you out, you can count on me'"

    He said in a mocking tone with a look of disappointing to match.

    Lifting his head he soon realised the place was no longer empty, it was in fact filling rather fast, with a quick jolt he stood upright, made a quick dash to the bar area and set down the crates, disappearing behind the lower portion of the bar for a moment he re-emerged with his mane straightened out and a waistcoat partially fastened around his torso. With a slight cough he stood on his hind legs and placed his two front hooves on the counter-top and surveyed the area, he recognized almost all the ponies there, suddenly a glint hit his eye and he remembered:

    "Ah, that pendant thing"

    Not one known for wearing any sort of accessory he took the pendant from behind the bar and clipped it to his waistcoat.
    He took another look to his side, still no sign of his helper for the night.

    "Now where is that kid... he has my drinks list" He whispered to himself, trying to maintain a calm look on his face.

    "someday im gona damage something important" Eiro mumbled to herself trying to shake of her dizziness, though soon after her concentration was brought to another of the guests at the party.

    "Are you ok there dear girl? I nearly felt that bump!" he asked seemingly concerned

    "yeh im fine, hitting my head as become a habit of mine" Eiro laughed, a few moments later she could see straight once again.

    "Not the wisest of habits I must say. Best to curb that one, yes. Anyhow, what is your name, fair mare?" Prismatic tips his top hat curtly and gently smiles."I am Prismatic Flux. Student at the Canterlot University of Magic." He offers his hoof for a shake.
