While flying to Neighpon, a small airship carrying fourteen crew members, including the captain, and twelve passengers, experiences a disastrous accident. As it's flying over the ocean, one of the ropes holding the four balloons snaps, causing the ship to jerk a bit and put more strain on the other ropes, which in turn causes more to snap. Pretty soon, one of the balloons float away, and the ship begins to descend. As the crew work to make the other balloons lift more, more ropes snap until a second balloon floats away. Now descending faster and at a steeper angle, the captain order the crew to prepare for an emergency landing, and for the passengers to go below deck and stay in the aft portion of the ship. The Captain soon finds that their landing choices are limited. They either would land on an island, or land in reef filled waters. Fearing that if they hit the reefs, more would be harmed or killed, he orders the crew to aim for the island. They hit the beach front first, coming to a near dead stop and crushing the front third of the ship. On top of that, the remaining balloons in their attempt to keep the ship up cause the ship to tip and flip upside down, crushing many of the unfortunate crew members underneath, including the captain.

The crew and passengers inside the ship fared better than those outside, but only because some of them were alive. A handful of ponies were battered and bruised, but alive. They also had no serious injuries among them. Many of them were in their rooms in the guest compartment, now upside down with their things strewn about. Only one crew member was lucky enough to be alive in the ship.

Stranded on a tropical island, these few ponies needed to find a way to survive and return home.

The inside of the ship was rather plain, made of wood. The ship clearly had been refitted for carrying passengers from a trade vessel. Each of the guest rooms had a single bed and a nightstand with a lamp. Other than that, the rooms only contained what the passengers brought.

Everyone starts out inside the ship. You may include in your first post why your character is on the ship. There isn't really a posting order, but everyone should post once per GM post before making a second post.

All forum rules apply. Have fun.

Shard was groggy, annoyed, had a headache, and on top of it all was now rather sore over most of herself. She had been enjoying a nice afternoon nap when everything had started going crazy and was still in her room when the ship had gone down. Now she was on her roof, with a mattress covering her haphazardly prone form that was soon kicked off as she picked herself back up. As she looked more about her wrecked room, Shard went over to her sparse belongings and retrieved the small bag of crystals she had. Hefting the gemstone with her hoof, Shard's eyes began to glow before the crystals began to reform and reshape themselves into a spike that quickly pierced the door's knob and lock so that it could easily swing open.

It was then that Shard managed to note that her sunglasses were missing and so began a rather frantic search for them until she found the super dark shades though one lens was now cracked, but still she threw on the eye ware before proceeding out into the hallway to see if anyone else was even alive, and to see about exiting the currently upside down ship. "Hello?" she called out as she turned to the left or back end of the vessel.

Dream Sickle was over by the buffet table. On the table in front of her was an simple deep pan with an stand in the middle for her sculpture. Unfortunately for the artist she also had an long scroll of rules of what the sculpture can't be. She was also stunting a crew member vest with the top button undone. 
That changed when the sirens start going off. "All crew members to the deck of the ship." With no question  dream ran sight to the deck of the ship to see her fellow crew members trying to hold down the ropes. "Oh crad." Dream ran over to one of the fellow  crew members that were holding a rope alone. grabbing on follow by  blow some slow and forming an ice anchor around the base. When the crash happen she was still gripin to the last ballons on the ship. Once the balloons started to lift herself upward. As she lost her grip she could only pry not to be crushed. As she fell she made an large blanket of snow in attempt to cushion the crew's fall. She some how manage to fall down the stairwell to the lower level. IN a huge desperate attempt she made an large sphere of snow around herself. After the crash she popped out the pile of snow with a few bumps and bruises. She started to walk the back of the vessel hallways. "He... hello, Captain, first mate... ANYPONY!?" Using her horn as a light. She had a clear expression of fear on her face.

Shadow winced at the call, head pounding. She knew she should've gotten some sleep last night, but it hadn't seemed to be so urgent. Now, everything she'd gathered for the shop, every trinket, spice, and tool, would be smashed to pieces. Who knew what she could salvage, if anything...

Never mind that, the unicorn thought. Focus on the task at hoof. She reluctantly pushed herself out of the debris, slowly but surely making her way towards the voice. Neighpon could wait; the wreckage of her transport couldn't. "I'm here," she announced to the dark, waiting for a reply. A small chorus of other survivors made their presence known, although she couldn't see them, much less identify them. She hadn't exactly gone it of her way to be social. The other passengers probably only knew her face, if even that. Maybe there was a way to turn that into an advantage...

Still, it was enough. The little pink pony made her way through the dark, hood wrapped tight around her lank form, saddlebags pulling her down into the sandy, wooden floor. Whatever she found ahead would be Future Shadow's problem. Right? Right.

So why was she so scared?

Titanna looked about in wonder, her first time on a cruise ship, as opposed to swimming alongside one.  She took in the sights, the smells, the sounds, and was having the time of her life, just prancing about.  She almost forgot about the tickets from Manehattan to Mareis, some ponified paris, apaprently, and was dead certain she'd enjoy her first cruise more than anything.

At least, until disaster struck.

"What hit me?"

((I'm not sure whether that counted as a GM post, but everyone is being really quiet, so I'll keep going:))
Shadow was about to turn back when she saw it. A faint ribbon of light danced along the hallway, just a few yards from the hooded filly. She vaguely recognized the shape below as a pony, one she'd passed by a least a dozen times but once again hadn't bothered to introduce herself to. Luckily, the charismatic mare was well-known, at least as far as Shadow knew.

"Dream Sickle!" She rushed towards the familiar face, lighting her horn as she went. "On, is it wonderful to see you! I thought you'd have been..." Shadow refused to finish that sentence. They were on their own now, and whether or not other ponies survived, they would still have to be found. Dream was her... What to call this? Not exactly a "friend," too brief for that. Those were the rules. Right?...

Okay, maybe not. Dream definitely qualified as a friend in this situation. "Let's actually not talk about that. So now that we've found each other, what next?"

At first dream was scared from the voice out of no where but, see it was a passenger calmed her down a bit.
"Oh thanks luna. I'm not alone. Sorry, I'm still trying to gather myself. I don't know if any other crew survived. But my priority right now is get any passengers off the boat before thing get worst. I only been searching for a bit. Had you seen anypony else? I need to continue searching for others... It up to you if you want to help me look or I'll find you an way out of the ship."
Dream was relieved not to be completely alone, but the fear of it only being the only crew member left as she hasn't seen any of her coworkers.

Titanna trots out of a hole in the side of the ship, wandering over to the other survivours.

"Did soemone get the number of that freight train?" Her voice is slurred, possibly the result of some head trauma.

freight train? oh dear.
"Miss are you ok?"
Using her ability. Dream took a deep breath in and spewed out a small pile of snow in to her hooves. Using her magic she then turn the snow into an small bowl of ice and offer it to anna.
"Here place this where it hurts. Shall I make one for you too?" Dream offer shadow.
"My job right now is to get any survivors off the ship but I still don't know who left if you want to help me in my search that would be appreciated but if you want off this ship I'll can try to lead you to the beach."

"Ow, my head." Titanna took the patch of snow and held it to a bleeding mark on her forehead. "I didn't get a good look at who, all was on the ship, I mostly hid in my cabin. Got scared someone would yell or something. Sorry." She sits down, trying to reassemble all of the details. She remembers this much, if you have a concussion, don't fall asleep, and try to keep your life in your mind. "Is there any way I can help? My dad trained me in some survival tricks...We may need them if we're stuck...."

Dream took a deep breath to calm herself. " I was instructed to aim for the beach, I Don't know much about the island or if inhabited but, I don't feel comfortable in this ship. But I still need to find any other ponies left. If we travel in a pack we could protect each other. I don't want any one alone on this ship, in case of something. If it comes down to it and you both want to leave the ship I'll lead you two out. I do ask if if you could build a fire if you do. But I can't leave the ship until all other passengers are off the ship. Hmmm... If my memory's correct there should be  medical supplies in the clinic and there should be a supply of food in the kitchen. It completely up to you two what you want to do."

"Survival 101 says in case of shipwreck, stay as close to the wreckage as possible, even if on an island. It makes it easier for rescuers to spot you, plus in a worst-case scenario, the wreckage can be salvaged for survival purposes. I'll get us a fire going and see if I can rig up something for fresh water." Titanna's tone has taken a dramatic shift, going from bubbly to clinical and critical. A sign of some kind of training, not unlike the royal guard. Still, it's good to have some basic necessities taken care of ASAP.

Shadow gave the two mares a quick nod. "Alright, then. I think I heard somepony moving around a few decks up. If that is the case, there are probably others still in their rooms. They were going down, to the clinic probably. I'll lead; this isn't my first rodeo." She was about to start walking when she caught the others' confused looks. "Oh! Not wrecks specifically, just search-and-rescue. I usually travel alone, but you know how it is." The filly started towards the back of the ship.

Okay, two passengers are currently safe. I think I saw one "Knocked Out" in the hall but I can't let that effect now there's still nine unaccounted for and I still haven't heard or seen any other crew members, oh I hope I'm not the only one left.
While she began to follow the filly, she wanted to get her mind off the ship of death just for a brief moment. "I'm sorry, I don't think I ever got either of your two names, I know I should know, but Interior designers don't get the most interactions with the guest."

"I'm Shadow," the filly replied, still walking. Suddenly, her ears perked up, pushing back her hood. "Wait, did you say 'designer'? I thought you were a guest... Do you know where the storage is? Wait, let's finish introductions."

Dream shooked the offer hoof. "Just call me Dream or Sickle. to answer your question shadow. Beside the supply in the kitchen and clinic. There is a bunch of other supplies down or in this case, up where the crew slept. I just hope the guy left the keys in his room. But first thing first  we need to get as many guest off this ship. So we could keep count and make plans."
Once again Dream started to call down the hallways. "Anypony! If you could hear us make some form of sound or come towards the sound."

Titanna began trotting closer to the wrecked airship, careful to keep a nose and ear out for any potential danger of explosion or the telltale sounds and smells of a fire, ready to leap to safety, or leap to the rescue. Her goal, however, was to gather some scraps from the wrecked airship to make some needed materials. A solar steamer to make fresh water, and one of the ruined baloons to make a large tent.

"I'll start combing the halls for stragglers. Let's rendezvous at Titanna's station afterward. Then I'll head to the crew's quarters and get the keys. After that, I think we should call it a night. Sound good?"

Getting boss around by a filly, But at least her plan is pretty much the best we got. 
" Sounds like a plan. Anna, continue making camp, Remember whatever you do, DON'T fall a sleep. If it comes down to it we could drink melted snow. Be careful" 
I know enough medical stuff to fix minor problems. I just really hope there more then the three of us left. Dream continue to light the hall with her horn and continue to shout for passengers.

[A few hours later...]
The light from Shadow's horn cast ghostly shapes in the halls. It had become difficult to focus on her mission, her mind drifting to more childish thoughts, like what that creaking sound was, or the rhythm of her hoofsteps. Years ago, that might've been helpful, but now it was just a distraction.

There was an upside, though; her intuition had been honed as well, and there was something up ahead. She could feel it.

Minutes passed. The constant beating of her hooves on carpet faded from her mind, leaving her in a trance. It was close, seconds away maybe. Keep going...

There! Two half-circles floated at the end of hall, reflecting the blue light of her horn. Shadow suddenly recognized them as... Sunglasses?

Oh well. Where there were sunglasses, there were ponies. "Hey over there!"

Shard hadn't just been aimlessly wandering through the halls in the time before someone found her. No, she'd been carefully evaluating her situation and making ample use of the more recently available resources at her disposal, or at least that was the fancy and less offensively worded explanation for her slowly but steadily growing crystal collection that even now poked out of the set of saddlebags that were now hers if they weren't originally, frankly it was hard to tell.

When the light hit her however, Shard tilted her head away and practically let out a hiss of annoyance. "Turn it down, the volume and the light," Shard called back annoyed before cautiously lifting her head to the source of the noise. "So I'm not the only survivor after all... great," she added almost uncertainly before closing the remaining distance between them. The crystal pony tilted her head to where it was directly facing Shadow, the only indication that she was actually looking at the pony. She seemed to examine her for a moment before lifting a crystalline whitish purple to brush an errant strand of her crystalline blue mane out from in front of her sunglasses. "Well, you won't find anymore that way, they're all dead," Shard stated with a point behind her to where she'd come from. "I think it'd probably be best if we stepped outside for a moment and actually took scope of the damage before staying in here much longer. Who's to say when this whole heap might just come crashing down," she added while beginning to step past Shadow.

"... Okay." Shadow trotted after the Crystal pony, somewhat surprised about her upfront behavior. Still, a living pony was a good pony, as far as the pink filly was concerned. Besides, Shard looked like she could handle herself, which probably meant she had experience with life-or-death situations. Her only concern was being able to keep up.

Suddenly her thoughts turned to the ship's cargo. "By the way, I noticed you came from the back of the ship. Did you come across any keys? Besides the ones to the cabins, of course. Big, important-looking ones."

"No, but I doubt we'd really need any. The ship's in shambles and if a door isn't willing to budge to some force, then the room beyond likely isn't worth venturing into," Shard replied at first without pausing in her stride, and then after a couple more steps, she did. Her head swayed for a moment before she actually paused and looked back, her eyes still veiled by the thick and dark sunglasses. "But if there's somewhere you absolutely have to get into someplace, I can... likely assist," Sharp added almost begrudgingly as she tried to force herself to be at least a little kinder to the other pony.
