Seeing the lubricants and all that steam and noise and chaos were Umbra happy that her magic wasn't as messy and complicated as his, one would always know where one had blood magic, one could never know if a piece of metal suddenly flew through the air when playing with fire and water. "I were thinking that picking up some crystal sculptures would be a nice thing to do before we leave, I did never really get to buy any yesterday for some odd reason." Her trying her best at a joke to make the rest of the day go in a mood that could be called better than it had begun.

He chuckled softly in turn, the humor not lost on him. "Yeah. Maybe if we're lucky, we might stumble upon a discount today to make up for it...? Come on, I'll go get my robes. Meet you on the bottom of the ramp soon..."

Shortly after, he'd have changed his clothes to be wearing a certain red set that made him look a bit more like a dandy, feathered fedora included as he went about to meet with her. He somewhat thought to remind her to cover herself lest others still fear her... exposed bones... but figured she had the mind to be mindful as is. Once ready, he'd escort her to where he thought they saw the shop last, assuming it was open for business yet...

As it were, the ambience was still tense around the castle town, since the attack had been rather recent. Many remained indoors for the most part while a few guards remained on patrol. Several in the town would spy upon the couple that was Sugary and Umbra in a mix of curiosity and fear; But mostly curiosity at least. The shop itself was actually open for business, but it was a lonely quiet place like most others until the tension settled.

Umbra did normally not work in the open for one sole reason, this. She felt like she had a bullseye painted on her forehead, the people of the town already getting pitchforks and lighting torches, even if all she had done yesterday was to help the people of this town. She would under normal circumstances hide herself under magic, putting a glamure or something up so people would see her and look at her, but never really react on seeing her, but that infernal crystal was still there with its burning presence. For each onlooker that stopped up and gawked at the two pulled Umbra in her robes, making the many pieces of cloth that made it up shift a little bit until she had a hood and long sleeves to hide herself in, her being happy over the store being open so they could get inside, them being shielding from all of the prying eyes.

"Its odd, one would be to think that they would behave just a little bit better after what we have done for them." Umbra taking up one of he few crystal sculptures up that hadn't been ruined the day before to take a better look at it as she spoke.

"It's... Well, news probably hasn't spread much yet, but I'm sure everyone will come around once safety has been assured." Sugary wasn't blind, feeling some of the eyes as well upon him. He could only smirk at the fact while watching over Umbra's back. "Do remember, there was quite the encounter yesterday... But hey, we could always go around sharing your love of cocoa with everyone. That ought to lighten the mood!" He was half joking and half serious, also giving the shoopkeeper an apologetic nod for rambling a bit.

Fiddling with a cup goblet drinking thingy with a design of some flower or other did Umbra come with a slight giggle at what Sugary said, it being a rather mocking sound. "Yea sure, sharing a cup of cocoa will surely bring us all together in harmony. Which element do you think that cocoa are going to replace? Generosity? Laughter? No lets have cocoa instead of magic,"

Sugary, of course, moved in front of Umbra with a very serious looking gaze for a moment, and then grinned with the utmost serenity as he gave a lighthearted but equally serious response while lightly pounding his chest. "Love, Umbra! The way to anyone's heart is through their stomach after all~" He hummed and lightly licked his lips as he imagined many a fine dish and drink before him. Maybe he was onto something, or maybe he was just hungry.

At his answer, at least, even the shop keeper let out a soft chuckle under his breath and seemed a bit more at ease being around the odd duo as they had their casual talk.

Seemed to be in thought for a moment, her putting the crystal cup down, a bit to the side as to claim it as hers, before licking one of her fingers before poking him between two of his ribs, it feeling cold where she poked him, from where she touched all the way to his heart. "Its a very common misunderstanding that the stomach is the easiest way to a persons heart," her going behind him to poke at him once more, it being yet another cold prod to his heart. "It being especially easy if you use the spine to guide the weapon, would suggest an enchanted rapier or an ordinary ice pick, they are also easier to hide than a rapier or most other weapons for that matter." Her saying it so matter of factly.

"I must admit that cocoa is still new to me, and does not know if there are any other drinks there are better tasting still, but I have never heard of a war ending because of people sitting down and sharing a hot drink, or because they suddenly began to love each other when sharing a meal. But then again have I never studied culinary war culture, so what do I know."

Sugary's face rose a curious brow at Umbra's hand coming closer, then a light blush at her touching his chest, and then a few winces and yelps as it dawned on him what she was actually doing, twice. He felt slightly heartbroken as he rubbed his chest and back for warmth and looked to her as if she had just slapped him for no reason. "I know how to slay a foe, I meant metaphorically, Umbra! Please refrain from freezing my heart, self-revival of it is very hard and painful to pull off..."

He sighed and grumbled lightly, trying to get her to understand better. "And in general, a war ends when hostilities end. Surely you can agree a warm meal and a nice chat is preferable to giving someone the cold shoulder if you want to make peace with them, right...?" He blinked, thinking more carefully about what he just said to her and looked somewhat distant. "... Yes, I do mean the cold shoulder part metaphorically." He cleared his throat and moved back into a watchful stance of their surroundings. "As for other meals...? Plenty of good things out there you might like, I'm sure. One could spend a lifetime trying out different dishes and always find something new... Hmm..." Again, his thoughts seemed to go into food, the cold feeling in him as it faded making him think of dessert instead.

Meanwhile, the shop keeper tentatively moved closer to Umbra, and gestured to the object she placed by her side. "Uh..... Will you be wanting to purchase that, miss...? I could wrap it if you'd like."

"Yes I would very much like that, just a sec and I will be there to pay for it," said she to salespony with an attempt at a civil smile before turning to Sugary with her full attention. "My experiences tells me that war ends when the loosing side stops it, either by surrendering or when the amount of casualties and war material spent is too high compared to the results. Hostility, hate, fear, racism, those things does not end just because someone important sits down and sign a piece of paper and declares that all things are well." Her mood a bit sour by now, him simply not getting that the easy and mostly carefree life of an ordinary pony wasn't a gift that was given to all creatures in existence, her paying for her new cocoa cup, paying double the demanded price in a way to say sorry for the unintended damage that they had done, her leaving for the door as to say that their visit to the store, and the conversation about that subject were done.

The shopkeeper would tend to her needs as requested, the item given with care and a pretty wrapping. As for Sugary, he'd feel she was a bit upset, but perhaps tenacity would prevent him from giving up; Or maybe he was just muleheaded as he walked after her closely. "Ah, so that's what you meant. There is truth to what you say, I'll admit... But I would advise not to look at it so broadly. Much of what you speak of persists even in times of peace. We'd always be at war otherwise..." After all, had he not been genuinely treating her with compassion? Hopefully, she'd remember things like friendship, love, courage, and acceptance were also part of every day life if her sour mood did not consume her... or the muleheaded unicorn did not annoy her unintentionally for that matter.

Putting the cup away between the folds of her robes, it fitting and not making any fold or bulge, did Umbra shake her head at the muleheaded Sugary, her wondering for the shortest of moments of it really were worth all of this to keep travelling with him instead of on her lonesome... Her shaking her head once more to get those thoughts out of her head. "Its true that you and your kind never will find true peace, but in the realm that I draw power from... They did not know of war or harm or greed or any other such things, but were tainted by those concepts by those that cut pathways between the realms and took them from their home to do their bidding. Many of us have never wanted anything to do with harming others, and most that do harm does it in the name of ending all harm one way or another, just as I want." Her eyes looking at her feet as she walked and told why she had such views on war and others as she did.

"Oh...?" Sugary moved closer, alongside her, lowering his head a bit to see eye to eye with the somewhat shorter Umbra, even more so as she looked down. He had a strong look of curiosity, almost youthful even as he was wide-eyed, and spoke in a hushed tone to not alarm others, also clearly not minding in the least that her face was partly bone still. "Umbra, this realm you speak of... Will you please teach me more about it when we get back to the ship? I'm very, very interested in learning about what it's like. Especially regarding how those from it seem... pure, before being summoned...?" In part, deep down, he hoped to learn to an extent what she meant regarding her reason for wanting to stop all harm; For better or worse. He certainly had not forgotten Umbra was powerful, but he could afford to be cautious than fearful around her. "... I'll make you all the sweets I can for it, if that's what it takes."

"Do you really think that you can bribe me with mere sweets and gain such knowledge in return?" Asks she with honest curiosity on her face, her going without any aim as she did not know the layout of the city, the wild wandering keeping them at the same distance from the centre with its infernal crystal heart. "There are not much to say about it thou. Its pure essence, there are no up, no down, no beginning, and no end, yet is it bigger than this realm. There are no time, no yesterday, no tomorrow, only an ever lasting now. There are no you, there are no them, there are only a collage of the collected all, you being no single point, but all places and not a single one of them at the same time. It is the most primordial and orderly chaos that I know, and it is a place that I call my home."

And so a deal with the devil was made. He looked forward to making more treats of course as he walked by her with a grin. "... Sounds like it has a bit of everything. I wonder if that qualifies it for perfection...?" That was more a philosophical question with no expected answer, simply content he got an answer from her at all. It gave him much to think on regarding her and her origins. "Well, I guess that means we go shopping for more ingredients? What are you craving besides chocolate? Or we could go and see the open field for raw magic stones now." There was the ever present air of casualness again.

She shrugged at both questions, at the first since she could point out many flaws of that realm, the biggest how easily creatures from it could be kidnapped and put into slavery so easily, the second since she didn't knew nearly enough about foods, and especially sweets, to know what there was beside chocolate to crave. "Fresh ingredients have always given me the best results, and I see no reason for you to carry all that you need outside the town to wander around, so lets head for the fields and see what they carry."

"So be it. To the fields it is... And when we come back, I'll think about what else to bring for food." Along the way, he kept his casual demeanor as usual, and the general demeanor of those around them continued to ease up, if only a little bit, from the fact the lich of a mare had a lively stallion comfortably with her. She couldn't be so bad if the silly one was with her, right...?

Out on the open field, the snow was more prevalent, once they moved farther out as expected, but the malevolent aura was gone, leaving it all as a gentle white blanket around them. Every now and then of course, rocks of unusual properties would be spotted near some crevasses, underground caves, or simply in some random areas of the field itself. Would Umbra find any of interest here given much of the land was pristine over centuries after being sealed away...?

While Umbra only wore a single piece of cloth wrapped multiple times around her body, it seeming too thin to protect her in any way against the sudden drop in temperature, or the ever falling snow that had accompanied them ever since they left the towns protecting shield, did Umbra not seem to mind it at all. The mare seeming to almost being at home in the wide waste wilderness, or at least more herself and relaxed as there were no longer anyone gawking at the two of them.

"Its amazing in an odd way how many different ecotopes there are in this world. I mean, where else in this whole wide world are you going to find crystrals sticking out the ground like this, and not growing deep in the ground in geodes." Her going closer to one of the stalagmite like crystal, her knocking a few times on it in curiosity, it replying with a deep resounding tone.

His spine tingled a little at the resonance from the crystal she knocked, chuckling a little afterwards from the sensation. "Oh~, that one has a nice little ring to it... Ah! And yes, I suppose you're right about this place." He looked around the field, admiring the occasional rock of interest. "... Tales tell of how Sombra's obsession with power morphed the land. The ancient battle between him and the Princesses seemed to alter things more. Technically, the geology here isn't exactly natural, but it has been left this way for a very long time, so it may as well be..." He flicked his ears as he lightly touched the edge of something smooth, and when he dug into the ground, he was pleased to find a raw pink oblong crystal. "... Almost warm... This one's a keeper." He held it and looked to Umbra. "Hey, you told me you've done some rituals before, right? Spot anything yet worth your time for those here?"
