PostSubject: Penumbra, Lux, Terra (Private)   Mon Apr 07, 2014 10:06 am

After a long day's trip over different villages in a region of Zebrica, the Black Mambo finally arrives near a large settlement, the largest Sugary had seen so far, and began to slow down as he approached along with cargo and personel while the sun began to set over the horizon.

Once carefully landing the airship roughly the size of large two story house near the very edge, he had turned almost everything but the Magitek powered lights off to let the old flying vehicle cool down, and opened the storage room doors and cargo ramp on the side. From it, half a dozen Zebrican performers of varying genders and ages, and their luggage, and wares began to unload from it to be received by several of the locals awaiting them.

Meanwhile, Sugary himself would look out from the deck just above towards the settlement, wondering what such a place held so far off from his usual travel routes, and possible surprises for an experienced traveler like himself.

Sitting at her nook at the library, as usually, hidden behind towers of books, as usually as well, did she do something rather new when the big machine was flying over her. She did for once look up from her book and saw the world around her. It was all new and mysterious to her, but the big magical thing, for it was magical, no doubt about that, was still the most mysterious one to date.

She had already done one thing today that she normally wouldn´t do, and now did she do yet another one, she closed her book, the old tome giving a giant snap as it was closed. And she did a third unusual thing when she left her little private nook, a big tower of books both old and new being in her grip as she left to put them back in their right places. Some was sending her odd looks as she began her walk, not believing their eyes, some was running away to get help from the few local pegasi, and a single frail old zebra mare fainted, but seeing the girl walking on the roof of the library was then again not a sight for those faint of heart.

She had no problems coming down, it being just as many as she had getting up there, the black aura there was laying around her keeping her books and her in place as she went over the edge of the roof and down one of the big marble pillars, her a little bit sweaty over the magical trick but else not taxed.

Far away from the little village among the rocky terrain something was watching them all, something not of this world.
In the light of the setting sun the dark grey of the things metal suit blended in well to hide it, not that anyone could have seen it from so far away. The thing most likely to get noticed about this thing was the three glowing blue discs it had for eyes, zoomed in on the village to see every little detail and provide it in a nice little display for the thing inside this metal suit.

It saw the airship land, it saw the performers, it saw the girl climbing onto the roof of a building, it saw it all and made a careful note of it. For it was watching, learning, biding its time for the right moment.

But where had the thing come from? Space, obviously, but how the hell had it gotten here? Many of the villagers suspected what they liked to call The Grey Ghost, for a few had spotted it, and even fewer could agree on what it was, had arrived after a shooting star had crashed far from their village, but when they'd gone to investigate, they'd just found a massive, empty crater, still smoking from whatever had made it.

((Short settling in the settlement))

Given that he was purposely looking over the settlement in general, Sugary spotted Umbra over in the distance on a rooftop along with her books. But rather than be awed by her being up there, he merely thought of the mare as someone eccentric, and waved over to her in a brief an friendly and casual greeting from a high spot himself. He did notice eventually that she had a horn, or at least, he could've sworn he saw a horn on what he assumed to be a local as well. The other detail was a very subtle reading of her dark aura, but they were too far away and the place still fairly crowded for him to make out much and dwell on it.

Once the group unpacking below had finished their tasks, a middle aged Zebrican stallion called out to him. "Hey, Mr. Market! Come join us for dinner at the hotel, it's on us! We'll be paying you the trip wages afterwards too."

Sugary smiled, and accepted the offer. He liked the idea of getting to taste more of the local delicacies. "Sounds great! Let me close up, and I'll be right down." And so he did. Virtually every main entrance into the Black Mambo had been closed off, leaving only the smaller windows open for air, and some of the lights on for later. His clothing for the evening was a plain blue tunic, a white shirt underneath, and white trousers to go with it. Or as he liked to call it, a 'standard for Freelancers'. He wore no shoes as he had hooves instead of feet.

He then began to follow the troupe along the settlement, eventually reaching a small hotel with a dining area that was partially open to the public from the outside under a very well built hut like area.

Umbra had never been good at finding her way on her own, not even when it came to something as simple as finding the edge of town and the flying ship, so it took a good while before she was standing before the mighty ship, it now asleep and left on its own.

Rule number one about magic had always been never to poke anything that you don´t fully know what is, but that did not stop her from laying her hand flat onto the stern of the ship, her eyes closed since those wasn´t needed to see what she wanted to see.

"So how do you work, what makes you float flying boat?" Asks she herself, her in her own world as she felt after more and more of the spells inlaid into the big vessel, her other hand now pressed to its side as well, fingers spread out to feel most of it, and her body getting closer and closer until her forehead and torso was touching it. Her now looking like a loony there was giving it a hug.

Umbra was not the only one curious about the ship, the Grey Ghost was as well. But the Ghost could see the mare's dark magical aura near the ship. However, this did not stop it from silently walking closer, leaving very odd footprints behind it whenever the ground was soft enough for them to show up.
The footprints were like a bird's, except these had another toe at the back and from the look of the mark they left these things were viciously sharp. And indeed they were. The raptor like feet of this thing were bladed, though the metal they were made of didn't differ from the rest of the metal covering it in colour.

Scuttling to the side of the ship, out of sight from everyone including Umbra, the three blue discs of the things eyes looked up and down the ship, judging and calculating. Spotting a ladder the metal suited figure clambered up with ease and onto the deck, staying quiet and out of sight the whole time. Creeping over to door, the thing not alerted to any defences against intrusion, the Grey Ghost took something clipped to its waist. It was probably recognisable as a gun, what with it having two barrels, but this one glowed a dim blue as the creature slipped a hand into the gun, the end closing around the thing's hand to become an extension of the suit.
Aiming the thing at the lock of the door, pressing it firmly against the line between the door and the ship, the Ghost fired, but instead of a bang there the tiny, barely audible sound of compressed air escaping and a slight fizzle. Lifting the gun away to reveal the glowing hole where the lock had been the soon to be intruder put the gun back on its waist and pushed the door open quietly, stepping inside to have a nose around.

Umbra would eventually begin to feel that the entire ship, though mechanical when it came to the propellers easily visible from outside on the sides and back, would give off a semi-dormant flow of energy within that ran all the way within its hull. If she could somehow feel all of it, the source of the inner energy would be felt at its strongest in the lower back where the main engine room was. The very nature of this energy seemingly defying gravity by hardly being influenced by it like most other objects. There were other factors as well, but were mostly currently virtually static as they were not in use aside from the soft lights.

The Ghost would be met with... a rather rustic looking interior as the inside had the same red-hued fire resistant hard wood and steel which had most of the pathways lit up by the magic powered soft yellow lights on the ceilings. If she went upstairs, she'd find the bridge just past a simple sliding door with no lock where the main controls, navigation and communication equipment and materials would be found; Some seemingly conventional, others not so much. If she went below, she'd be walking by the main hall that went right around the central storage room, eventually led to the front where the two simple bedrooms that could comfortably hold 4 occupants was, a modest kitchen, and a modest bathroom, and eventually led below to where the main engine room was. But for the moment, none of the rooms would be lit up so she would have to turn on the lights for those by making use of the visible hard runic magic conduits on the walls, or alternative means. Even then, the only things worthy of note would be the engine itself as it was an intricate mix of Magitechnology and held both Magicite and a Levistone to power it as well as the rest of the ship alongside steam power machinery that ran through the inner walls. Overall, it was a normal looking ship with an extraordinary power source and inner workings. Something the two females would probably realize if they were attentive enough, however, was that the ship, though in good condition was fairly old by its own standards.

Meanwhile, Sugary had just finished having his early dinner and was stuffed, happy, and with extra bits in his pocket after a good meeting with the performers at the hotel restaurant. "Hm~, that was great~! Now what next...? Take the offer to perform with them as an extra...? Why not, it might be fun. Not like I got other things to worry about just yet..." Blissfully ignorant of what was going on back at his airship, he kept merrily walking towards it through the large settlement and the evening populace, not knowing that fate would eventually throw a Curve Ball at him he'd be unable to ignore... starting with the zebracorn hugging his ship he'd spot by the time he got back to it.

A very curious brow raised, he began to walk towards her and call out to her somewhat slowly. "... Miss...? Do you need help with something...? Feeling okay...?" It was in this proximity that he'd realize it was probably the mare he saw on a rooftop earlier, that what he saw was in fact a horn on her, and that her dark aura was a strong one in the proximity, though he'd have no way to tell she herself was malevolent, benevolent, or neutral in nature. Experience taught him, however, to be ready and cautious, though his question towards her was no less genuine in its intended purpose.

Being in her deep concentration, just taking it all in, the magical feeling, the heavy scent of the wood, the slow thump of the steam machines inside, just everything, and yet did she not realise that she wasn´t alone anymore, her eyes still closed when she spoke. "That is a silly question Mister Voice," her own voice sounding like she was half asleep, as if she was talking in a dream. "I am trying to figure whatever this giant flying thing is. It is not a fully magical machine, sadly, so there is so many things that I can´t really figure out..."

It was first now that she opened her eyes, her ears turning towards the stallion to properly hear him, and her head tilted. Something wasn´t right, Mister Voice had not spoken to her for weeks, and the voice that had asked her the questions was different as well.

Slowly did she let go of the Black Mambo, a part of her brain hating that she didn´t knew all about it just yet, and just as slowly did she turn around, her eyes big, shy and frightened. As if she had been caught with her hands in the cookie jar did she gather them on her back to hide them. Not a single word did she utter, even if she clearly knew the meaning of his words, that showing on her face. It was first when he began to speak again that she reacted, her opening her mouth, gave a whine of fright and did then disappear in a cloud of smoke so black that it could have been gathered from between the stars.

The Ghost meanwhile had given a look at everything, not needing to turn on the lights thanks to the glowing blue discs and the technology within. It made sure not to leave and trace of its passing, not touching or knocking over anything, even though this was slightly pointless as it was clear someone had entered. It it went to the engine room, having just checked out the kitchen, it saw through the walls of the ship that the dark aura had gone, and been replaced with another. A high chance it was the owner of this vessel, so the Ghost would have to work fast.
Looking at the engine three beams of blue light sprung out of its eyes, running over the engine room in triangles of light to scan the system, providing any information it could gather on how this thing worked, which it was going to do.

Initially, Sugary was left pondering just who it was that the mare was speaking to when she was referring to 'Mister Voice', though he then assumed she sorta meant him. When she did turn towards him, she had struck a deep cord with him. He saw and felt something unusually deep and pure from this mare's eyes unlike most anything he had seen before throughout his life; Almost to the point of being outright unsettling as she shied away from him the more he stared. It made him feel even more unsettled when, before he could say more, she disappeared using her own powers. He tried to let his trained senses pick up as to where she could've gone, but he was more concerned with the surreal and heavy impression she had left on him in those few seconds. "... What... What was that all about...?"

While trying to make sense of what had just happened and trying to shake off the lingering hurt feeling of seeing the mare in what looked to be fear and distress in the end without being able to solve it, he leisurely began to make his way back up the short ramp and begin opening the door to go right in, close it, and then make his way up to the bridge to gather his thoughts from the high point view... Until he noticed that the door that allowed entrance from the deck was sabotaged. "What the hell...!?!?!?"

He then began to activate his Scan spell and start to fully and actively seek out any non-mechanical and magical readings that weren't his or that of anything on the ship while simultaneously surrounding himself with a dozen orbs of water in a state of alert in the event of indoors combat. He kept where he was while in deep thought though still concentrated in the scanning as to what caused the door to become the way it was. "... That cut... Was it done by magic...? If not... who could possibly have a laser in THIS world...!?"

Meanwhile, the engine room was quite clearly the heart and soul of the Black Mambo as it contained large structure of magitechnology as well as passage under the rest of the ship for working within a part of it's infrastructure and other moving parts. Despite the rusty-brown color and apparent age it held along with the ship beyond the years that Sugary had actually owned it, it was in great working condition. All the mechanical parts were well oiled and well placed, where as the root-like rune covered metalwork that spread outwards into the walls and the rest of the ship gave off a subtle but constant glow filled with controlled magical power. The most distinguishing aspect of the engine were two main compartments: One that was visible through thick tempered glass which contained a cubic shape stone, a Levistone, brimming with a high amount of energy, and several small and flexible metal cables attached to it similar to the ones spreading out of the room. The other compartment below held several red crystals, manufactured Fire Magicite, that were glowing and, if one got close enough, could feel heat coming from them. Between the compartments was, of course, areas stored with water as it was as much a high-powered steam engine as it was a magical motor engine. All in all, it was an intricate mix of steam and magic powering the engines and much of the gears, pistons and moving parts aside from spreading the magic of the Levistone for excellent flight capabilities for the airship.

(Umbra is teleporting right now, and because of bad luck with the dice does she sadly have to skip a turn, an evil force of good keeping her in the imaterium that she teleports trough.)

Despite how interested the Ghost was in the machine and the devises that made it work, the strange magics and the runes, it had to cut its lesson short, as the other Aura had gotten closer and seemed to be doing something. Knowing it was probably looking for it, and most likely knew it was there, the Grey Ghost decided it would be a wise move to scarper. Leaving the engine room it made its way to the other cargo door, the one opposite the one the owner had come in, and burned the lock away using the same method as before.
Now free of the ship the Ghost took off into the wild faster than any pony could possibly match, disappearing into the darkness of dusk. The last thing to vanish was the glow of its three blue 'eyes'.

Sugary had eventually identified where the invader was within his ship, and walked down as quickly and carefully as he could. Unfortunately, and very much so, he barely caught a glimpse of the Ghost before it ran off unusually fast into the distance... after breaking yet another lock he'd have to replace. "... What... the... @*&#!?" He considered giving chase, but he had other things to worry over, such as the possibility that it took something of value of his. While most of his belongings were normal, some were practically priceless and of up-most importance.

He began to look all over while turning on all the lights. The engine room and the area below, the storage room, the bedrooms, kitchen, and bathroom, but nothing seemed to be missing yet. Keeping his magic flow ongoing and ready to act on a moments notice, he began to make his way to the bridge as he pondered what to do about the invader even if nothing had been stolen. "... Who... or what... was that...?"

Teleporting was not an easy skill to master, and the feat was only made harder when it was done by reflex and to a place that she never had seen before. She had never really understood "the other realm" that she took a short cut trough when she teleported, but if she had to explain it would she call it a big dark room with an infinite amount of closed doors in the walls, the door that she had to go trough to reach her destination being the only one with light shining underneath it.

Normally had she no trouble finding the door, Mister Voice always holding her hand, talking with her and guiding her to it, but this time had she to find it on her own it taking its time since she had gotten lost. She had to push a little harder than normally as well, sweat forming on her forehead but she got the door open, her tumbling trough it as it opening without warning or sign, her flopping down on Sugary's kitchen floor, the air of her lungs being knocked out of her as she greeted the floor with a moan of pain. Her soon flipping over onto her back as she felt her body up and down, making sure that all pieces was in their proper places.

It was not a comfortable floor as such, but she was laying on it for an awful long while, gathering her strength and finding her breath as her curiosity grew and grew and she soon rose from the floor, looking in the cupboards and such for what they hid, she did even turn the oven on and off a few times to find out how it worked properly before she moved on, first stopping whend she found something to drink, her throat now so dry ohh so dry as she saw the cold milk churn, her running back to the kitchen to get a glass so she could fill it up, a pair of biscuits being found forth from her dress, her enjoying both with her back laying up against the churn. A little smile of joy playing on her lips and small sounds of approval coming from her with each bite.

Shortly after surveying the bridge, Sugary would continue to remain alert and watch over into the distance, pondering what broke into his airship and for what purpose as it seemed nothing was stolen so far... But once Umbra herself showed up again, his senses in general alerted him, though also left him feeling very puzzled. "That's... The young lady from last time...? It's definitely a different signature than the one that already broke in... But are they related...?"

While considering these thoughts, he moved back downstairs as quickly and quietly as he could. He could more or less tell where she was, but was debating heavily on whether or not to attempt to intercept her quickly and question her, or eavesdrop on her actions in the meantime. Magic still on alert with the water moving around him, he got as close as he could to the entrance to the small kitchen to monitor what she was up to first...

Umbra would normally have sensed Sugary and his spells from far away, but with so much background noise from the flying ship and her little biscuit break to distract her did she not realise that she wasn´t alone before she could see him in the kitchen entrance, his magical aura from his horn telling her that he was there.

Slowly did the teen mare swallow her last bite, the tasty bite feeling as it was growing in her mouth as she chewed, her eyes glued to the entrance of the room. A lot of chaotic thoughts went trough her head, thoughts of flight, thoughts of fight, thoughts of spells and so many other thoughts. But from the war there was in her head was only one victor, a calm and rational thought, and as she took the last sip of cold milk from her glass did she utter the words there was following with the thought.

"Sorry about before," An apology was a good start, that showed that you were sorry, and not wanting any harm, and right now wanted she to be as harmless as possible towards the stallion, her mouth feeling dry as she spoke. "I am not used to people talking to me like that... So sorry if I scared you..." She was still sitting on the floor, giving him the higher ground was good, she did not want any of them or the ship itself to be hurt because anyone did anything rushed, her slowly placing the glass on the floor beside her, her hands being laid in her lap to show that she was unarmed.

"It is your ship isn´t it? Or do you work for the person that own it?"

Sugary was initially somewhat surprised that Umbra could tell he was nearby, but then again, he knew where he was, and so slowly walked over to where she could fully see him with her own eyes, the water spells at the and his horn flaring constantly in alert. His expression towards her was neutral, but he did not soon forget that something or someone else had broken in, and was none too happy in reality of having her in his ship right now... But from the way she was talking, he got the feeling that she might not be involved with the other visitor. "... Yes, this is my airship, and my home... Who are you? Why are you in here? And are you aware of the other visitor that broke my locks?" He'd keep things to the point for now. He had so much more to ask, but he needed to start with what matter the most. He also kept making eye contact as there was still the odd feeling he got from her earlier when he saw her the first time.

Sticking a hand down into one of the pockets of her dress, a mares handbag holding all useful things in existence, and her pockets holding even more in their debts took she a pair of coins forth. They were not the golden bits of ponies, nor were they the coins that zebras used, no they had a lighter tone to them, a bit more shimmer than gold, and pictures clad on its sides that no coins should have, olden and powerful runes and signs holding many a secret.

She was holding four of those coins between her fingers, one kept between each two pairs, all thrown over the floorboards to hit Sugary's feet. "Then are these yours. I have been taught never to steal so here there payment for the milk." It was not an answer to any of his questions, but it was the right thing to do and say at the least.

After that did she not do more than just sit and be silent, the silence growing more and more pregnant between them, the birth of the next question that she wasn´t sure how to answer becoming more and more imminent

Sugary didn't particularly flinch, but he did move back, his spells more alert as the unknown coins moved over to him. Between looking at the coins, and listening to Umbra, he was left with even more questions than answers in his mind. "... Look... Miss... The milk is the least of my worries right now... I'm sure you mean well, but I don't want your money for it. What I want is answers, and I hope to get some more now... Why are you in my ship? Do you need something or not?" He was still edgy, but first things first, he had to deal with what was right in front of him.

Seeing how answering one question only would birth twins after the silence did Umbra not answer any of his new ones, at least not at first, her instead brushing some crumps from her little snack of her cloth and stood up. Her movements being slow and careful since the stallion before him now was more alert than ever and was, him even powering up spells to let them rain down upon her.

It would be her first time, so it had to be special and perfect in the first go, her expectations being so high oh so high. A little shy smile forming on her lips as she took a step forth, her naked hoofs not making a single sound against the hard wooden floor for some reason. Her first expression had been a bad one, so fixing that was rather hopeless, but she could at least do this properly, this her first time.

As if she was controlled by strings, by a heavenly operator that only had seen the movements and never done them himself moved Umbras hand from her side up over her body and onto her heart where she allowed it to rest to gather strength for what she would do next, her taking yet another step forth towards the tall and mysterious sky captain there was standing there before her. Then did she tilt her head, slowly and in what she hoped was a cute way before she stretched her hand forth towards him. "Umbra."

((Shadow and Light))

Once again, something struck Sugary's heart and soul for a split second watching Umbra as she introduced herself. They way she spoke, the way she moved, was so very strange to him. He was used to seeing plenty of strange things in his life, but she filled a much greater criteria than he was used to.

She was clearly not a normal mare, but that wasn't made him feel unsettled once more. She was... pure. That was the feeling he got from her, and constantly. It actually made him feel... a little afraid inside. But he wasn't entirely sure why, and it bothered him.

He stood in chaotic silence, watching her, assessing her... But all the information so far pointed to her being there and... just that. She didn't seem to be related to the other creature so far, she had only drank some milk and offered to pay for it, and she was actually greeting him for a change and seemingly nothing else. It really made him feel awkward to not do anything when she might actually not be a threat as his instincts and years of experience kept pointing to.

Still unsettle, still nervous, he set forth into the unknown... by somewhat lowering his magical output, shakily raising his own arm, and offering it as a greeting in return, though he was hardly making effort to touch her hand yet. "... Sugary..."

Small teen mares shouldn´t have a grip like hers, it being solid and firm, feeling like if Sugary pulled with all his might would his hand be ripped of before being ripped out of her grip. But even with so much strength laying behind it, so much force being dammed up, did it still poses a softness to it. As if she was a bear holding a butterfly in its paw, wanting it to stay but not to hurt it, never to hurt it.

"Su-ga-ry..." said she slowly as she looked him up and down, as if he was an alien creature, tasting both the sight and the words with shy curiosity instead of fright. There was a little voice somewhere in the back of her head that told her that it was wrong, it was rude, even perverted when she took a step to the side, still holding his hand in hers, to look at his hip, her not caring that he was clothed and that there was nothing special to see.

"A rats tail... how odd," comes it from her as she studies the area some more, her hand feeling somewhat colder than before, the room seeming to darken, or was all of that just his imagination, because it coudn´t be true that the mares pupils had grown in size, almost filling the whole of her eyes... Just his imagination right?

No matter if it that was his imagination or not was what there came next as real as something could be, Umbra taking a step forth and letting go of his hands, her going up on toes to lick him on the cheek, a grimace playing on her face as she quickly took a few steps back. "No just salty."

Sugary was a strong mortal, perhaps powerful even, in his own right. But Umbra's grip felt far more solid than he ever expected as he reluctantly accepted her hand. It sent a tingle down his spine when he did so, but it had more to do with allowing himself to go through with this when he still had so many questions about this young and strange mare... Which only left him with way more questions as he kept watch over her use of Dark magic once more as she looked at his flank for a moment, and left him very surprised when she said 'rat tail'. Now only was the way she used her magic un-offensively so unusual to what he was also used to, but she had somehow pointed out something that he was familiar with... that she couldn't possibly be aware of unless they shared the same world origins as far as he was concerned. "Rat Tail...!? What is she saying...!? Why point out something like that out of the blue...!? ... !?!?!? No way! How could she possibly know about THAT!?"

The questions in his mind would all take a sudden stop as only one would remain on his mind shortly afterwards... when she deliberately licked him. The look on his face left him entirely baffled for a while, the only question coming out of his mouth being "Wha...?".

He would only speak later on when his mental gears started spinning again, trying to make sense of what was going on. "I... You... Ah... Listen... Are you... lost?" It was a simple question. One he hoped would help him figure out what to make of her.

Letting go of his Sugary's hand could Umbra not keep her giggle back, the question being such an odd one, and his expression as well. "Not at all. I am here, and here is in Roam there lies in Zebraca, that lies on the continent of Equestria, that lies on Equis. I know where I am, so I am not lost," the answer said with the same tone that a school teacher would use to answer a silly question.

Were she before was scared and shy were she now only curious and a tiny bit shy, her now knowing that Sugary wasn´t really the aggressive pony that she thought to begin with, but just a curious one like herself. But then again, had she found someone that she didn´t knew, that being almost all in existence, at her home would she properly act the same way as he had done.

Again, there was a tug in Sugary's heart. It was different this time, however, as it was less unsettling and more oddly relaxing instead. The way Umbra had answered... was as plain and true an answer as he could ever hope to get, so it was clear enough she seemed to have a good head on her shoulders... But the fact remained, she was inside his ship, and he had not formally invited her in on top of the fact that he still needed to deal with the fact that someone or something broke into his home and he needed to deal with things properly as soon as possible.

Still keeping the spell active for good measure, he addressed her once more as calmly as he could, trying to get a point across that she would follow right away as he simply could not tend to her fully. "I... see... Listen, I have a few things I need to deal with... Understand? I am going to be busy... You have a home, don't you? I need to ask you to leave my home and go to yours instead... got it?" He paused for a moment, hoping that he was getting the intended message across... and that she actually had a place of her own, before looking down briefly at the coins. He bent over, picked them up, and showed them to her once more with an extended arm. "... And here, take this back... No use crying over spilt milk, right...?" He, for a brief moment, genuinely smiled at the corny joke in well intended humor, but returned to a neutral one as there was still much in his mind.
