I rely on my Nightuards to act as my eyes and ears while I am busy monitoring the dream world. They help me to deal with the threats that are best kept out of the public eye.
My guards are divided into various sections. Adamant and Westwood are among the Watchers, who constantly monitor anomalies. If a physical threat surfaces, there are also various other squadrons, such as the Vanguard.
((Featuring AskTheNightGuards! Also a little shoutout to Vanguard cause his blog is kickass o3o))
There is more to offense than a sword, and defense than a shield. A modern warrior rarely fights alone, and the Night Vanguard, Westwood, and I are part of Her Royal Highness Princess Luna’s support structure. Westwood’s ability to interact and understand the readings is uncanny and well practiced, as if he has been interacting with the device long before our Princess’s return.
Thank you all for following!
((To anyone not in the picture, just imagine you’re in the barracks pressed against Arrowhead’s plot (Or Nors’s, if you prefer).))
(( 4 Inept Guardponies is cute, hilarious, and it’s a joy seeing them having fun and constantly improving their art. If you’re not already, check them out! ))
Nightguards say I say goodbye now. Be back, maybe. Go see Princess of Night to be better…
(( Yes yes, I know this ain’t a very good round-up for this arc, but now I just wanted it over and done with. No, Star Shot is not being sent away for good, she’ll just need some help to be repaired. I wrote myself up in a corner with this plot idea and am just chickening out of it again.
Now I just want to focus on the cutiemark swap event and I’ll keep the ask box off until I got it properly started and settled.
Thanks to Scootabot for letting me use her like this as well as thanks to the Nightguards for being my to-go-to helpers when it’s about Star Shot needing to get pulled out of the blog for a short while.
And again, sorry to you all for sucking this badly at making proper arcs for my blog. I’ll just focus on answering asks instead, since plots make me lose my motivation. But thanks for staying around none the less. ))
I certainly hope Miss Starshot recovers, as I wish her no harm. The magic barrier is only a precaution.
Already Westwood is trying to teach her the ‘art’ of generating rude noises on it.
(( Guh! I’m so late in reblogging this! Work has been uber-busy as of late, but hopefully I get a post out this weekend! ))
Looks like I don’t have that one after all…
((Featuring the Night Guards Adamant and Westwood!
It should be noted that renumeration for confiscated artifacts occurs on a case-by-case situation. Westwood suggested I trade the cabinet for an disk labeled “Sonic 06” stating that it would be only “half as dangerous.” When I commented that the disk would be unplayable due to its degradation of time, he assured me that, based on the documents mentioning it, “it was unplayable back then, too.” For all the years we have worked together, I still do not fully comprehend his logic at times.
(( Ask Joystick is a new tumblr, and it looks like they’re having fun! Give it a look! Also OH LUNA, I’M SO SORRY THAT NIGHT GUARDS HAVE SO COMPLEX ARMOR! ))
Elements of Investigation: Revelation
While “hiding in plain sight” appears obvious in retrospect, Whiteeyes, only Shining Armor and our ex-intern would recognize Her Royal Highness Cadence’s personality change. Of the siblings, the brother proved more convincing, especially since we had scanned the real Princess Cadence.
Unfortunately, neither Westwood’s documents or Canterlot’s own archives held anything about these creatures, Arcane Howitzer (NSFW), Thunder Strike, and Mercenary Mewtwo, and we only realized Demon Killer(NSFW)’s revelation too late.
I regret I was unable to dissuade Her Royal Highness from directly entering combat, limiting options. For now, Gaian Luck, one can only regroup and prepare.
(( Woo, it feels good to finally get this one out! Those following my mod blog probably saw me struggle with ensuring the animated gifs worked with Tumblr for the last couple of weeks. You’ll notice that on the fourth panel, I had to drop a frame (it’s okay, it’s part of the error!) just to get Tumblr to accept it. My apologies that it’s taken this long!
Anyhoo, work’s been getting stupid-busy as of late, and will probably be that way for a while. Those of you new to the tumblr might want to click the Elements of Investigation link to see this storyarc chronologically. ))
A tumbr I’ve been following for quite a while now is “Friendship is Top Secret”. It’s a very creative, very fun blog that I’ve had the pleasure of watching over the last year. If you don’t watch it, check it out. If you do watch it, you’re a good pony.
Even if you aren’t necessarily into MLP, the humor is enjoyable and the mod is very talented (and perhaps a little OCD).
You’ve all heard of “Fan Service,” where a show or a blog includes something as a nod to the fans. Well, I figured I’d reverse the meaning for a change, where the fan gives something back to the blog. I’m not a talented artist, but I do have some photoshop skills. So, I took a few hours and made this as a “Merry Christmas/Happy Unbirthday/Hearth’s Warming/New Years” present (yes, from scratch).
Though, I hope the night guard mod doesn’t mind me borrowing the background image for the purposes of this demonstration >.> *cough*
NightGuardMod doesn’t have to use it, but I figured he might still enjoy a little return from his fans. Happy ChrisHearthUnDayNewYear, Night Guard Mod.
(( Squeeeeee! This is totally awesome, and it’s totally going up as the banner, as well as credits in the sidebar. Yaaaay! :D ))
(( Happy 2013, Tumblrpon. Cameos: Nathariel and Arrowhead. So what are all y’all hoping for the upcoming year? ))
Silly Creamu. That won’t work. You are scary :<
Westwood is without fear when it comes to beautiful chefs, but this may be attributed to his habit of making faces in the windows of Canterlot Castle. He insists it is a security measure.
(( Yes, this IS my favorite reaction image, and no, I’m not tired of it yet! ))
