>Off in the distance you see a timeworn yet magnificent mansion that stands alone towering over the surrounding area. Past that is a lush forest that stretches to the vast mountains beyond. Many sorts are drawn to the curiosity that is the mansion.No one knows where it came from or how long it has been there. For whatever reason you find yourself heading towards it. You may not know what tales you will weave in these winding halls. No one does, but all stories have a beginning and this one starts with a knock.

"Earth blew up partly because of Princess Celestia and the griffon king having a massive world war...armed to the teeth with crude nuclear weapons so many that this beautiful world could not handle it..." she looks out
"this is actually the first time I ever got to see Terra with my own eyes...sure I seen terraformed worlds but...this..." she looks at a rose next to her and gasped as it picked her

>He looks over to her as she sits back, then looking out at the newly budding foliage after the winters melt with the fresh green on all the birch trees. The conifers still stood deep green and tall amonst the brighter deciduous trees. Thinking about it all at a waste quietly as it slowly burns. He shakes his head a bit, remembering back to the forest torches years ago, during the year long escape. He then looks back at to Cherri as she picks up a rose and smelling it. He chuckles back slightly before looking back forward.

Yeah...yeah it is.

Well...welcome to Terra. Or, as most of us in this day and age call it, Earth.

she looks at all of nature's beauty silently as the trees of the everfree sway with the wind not to far away from the mansion
"Five billion years....that's how old this rock is...I've...I think I have a mission now...A mission to prevent the boiling make the earth that was...the earth that is..."

I'm not so sure about that Cherri. When I was a refugee coming in with my small group from decades ago, we had a hard time getting belief from the Princess herself. I doubt they would take a ship that they would never see for hundereds, if not thousands of years seriously whatsoever.

>He bites his lip a bit.

Yeah...I dont know how to go about it...

she looks at her hoof that healed up from the prick and blinked "computer...scan for nanobots?"

"no nanobots nanobots have ever been injected into you according to health records "

>> No. 40814990
>He looks at her oddly as she talks about spies and then moving onto nanobots.

Umm, I dont think so. Mainly out of the fact know, a giant spaceship. And as far as I know, no nanobots exist...outside maybe the Mansion. Just letting you know that.

Otherwise...if you want to bring this forward we will have to present ourselves like most other ponies around here. Going by train is a common thing to do as it leads right into Canterlot.

Oh...been a while then. Um, basically you have an engine, with a bunch of passanger cars behind it, riding a long a pair of steel rails.

To be honest its a rather pleasant ride...if you ask me anyways. It just takes you where you want to go.

she thought for a moment and looked over and stopped in her tracks as Olivia came over

"Wowza wow...Ey...err..." Olivia looked at the ship and at cherry.

"O-Oka.....Okasan?" said cherri

>He shrugs

Well, you'll know soon enough anyways. Besides, its one of the few ways for Earth Ponies like yourself to get around to other towns and places without walking the whole way.

Also doesnt attract attention unlike a giant space cruiser...

"but ma didn't have any brothas or sistas...where do youse come in then?"

"I'm....I'm your daughter from the future..."

Olivia stood there silently as she looked up at the ship then at Cherri and noticed she had her nose bit in the face "If youse are my daughter what's my favorite food, my brand of eyeshadow and one thing I would tell nopony but my daughter..."

"The calzones from Pisano's pizzaria, your eyeshadow is old noir dusty blue and you and your band mate Gloria-"

with the mention of Gloria from Cherri, Olivia shoved a hoof in her mouth chuckling nervously "Ain't that somethen' ain't it Mobius?..."

>He just turned a bit as he looked at the two, as Olivia really found it was truly her daughter. He smiled lightly, responding somewhat lightly.

Yeah. Sure is.

>He chuckles over Olivia shoving her hoof in Cherri's mouth just to shut her up about that other somepony. Assuming it was somepony long passed away in Olivia's history. He wasnt sure how to respond for a few seconds before then continuing.

I would assume she has quite the history under her belt, coming from so far away.

Well, whose to say a thousand years cant make a great singing voice or on big crick in the neck?

But understandably, interests are lying elsewhere.

>He leaned over a bit as the weight on his back shifted, yanking at the straps under his chest to reef it back to center.

So, Cherri. If youre at all interested in staying here in Equestria, the Mansion is your home, as it is to all of our other residents. If you would like to take a look around I'd be happy to show you around a bit.

And maybe yourself, Olivia and Mystic can all pick out a room for yourself?

>Terran would have been in the library, as the door was slightly opened as the atrium of the library filled the leatherbacked scented room with dusty light. A slightly smaller brown stallion would be sitting in one of the chairs with a small pile of books next to him as he had his brown bag sitting in front of him. He was intently into his current book, titled "A Brief History on Acrylic".

>Being in the quiet room for so long at this point during the day, besides the crash in the forest about an hour ago. He is startled easily as the book tumbles out of his hooves onto the floor in a bit of a fright. He then looks to the door with his bright green eyes. N-not at the moment no. Everypony else is off...more or less doing their own thing.

Um...I-I think I heard some commotion...outside the Mansion a while ago. I-if at all interested...

>He blinked nervously to him.

>He nods in response
Thank you for your time, I'll be sure to go check that out.
>He walks out of the library and towards the entrance of the mansion itself.
I wonder if anyone I remember is even still here. Dashy, Deadpony, Mobius, Anyone... For all I know they've left on their own with the others.
>He exits the mansion and looks up at the sky
Its crazy to imagine how much this place has changed since I've left. I never even got that kid's name before I left. Heh, the first person I meet and I don't even bother to get to know them, some kind of return that is...
>He continues outside the mansion to explore the "commotion" the brown stallion told him about.

>As he were to look out front, nothing appeared to be wrong. A rather lovely spring day in fact, as the final bit of melt was still present in the air. If he were to go around the left however, he would find a large spacecraft sitting at the back of the Mansion grounds. The courtyard garden was green and a nice place to walk around though in the meantime as well.

>Terran, the brown stallion in the meantime, gave a bit of a sigh before closing his book, now that he had lost track and plopped it on the top of the rest of the book pile. He reached down, slipping his saddlebags over his back, and starting to head outside. He felt the fresh spring air waft up at him, making him smile a bit as he quietly made his way out the right side of the doors behind the new stallion (to him) towards the forest.

Kinzie was outside the mansion by the forest located just outside the back yard. As she stood in the tall grass that swayed and rubbed against her hooves she held her book up, reading through one of the spells. Her eyes went back and forth through the pages before finally looking up at the nearby tree. After closing the book, determined and assured of her knowledge, she closed her eyes and allowed the tan aura to emit itself around her horn. After a minute she cast acid arrow at the tree, burning a hole quickly through it as the beam of green acid shot into it.

Kinzie would smile, glad to see that the spell was successful, but was also disappointed at how it didn't perform to it's fullest capability. She only sighed before looking over to the garden. All the plants were dead from the winter that brought much snow this year. None of the nice looking flowers managed to grow back during the time, so it became difficult to find what could be joyful in the wildlife this time. Gave little reason to even stay awake.

>Mobius was just around the corner of the Mansion at the back, speaking to the indeed owner of this new arrival ship, Cherri and her mother Olivia. He then saw the new arrival to the conversation. An old face that he had not seen for...years now at this point. He slowly turned his head to him in a bit of amazement.

Inferno? That actually you?

>He then smiled a bit, seeing somebody he hadnt seen for so long.

>Out of the brush, close to where a spear of acid shot through the trees came a brown stallion from the underbrush. He looked at the tree in staunch fear of what just happened. Then spotting the only pony around. A unicorn nonetheless with a spell book. He nervously walked over to her, his voice timid and a bit more fearful than usual.

>He puts a hoof to his chin in thought.
Well, it seems that...a lot have just gone their own seperate ways. Dashy and Andrew have been missing for a bit. Lucky gone... Mercury is up on the Orion station. No idea where Brinkles is...hes pretty much fallen off the Earth.
>He pauses a bit.

Yeah, a lot have come and gone in the past while. Shit, as far as I know...Chicken Scratch is actually dead...Poor soul.

"Ash that sounds like a good idea Mobi-san but I have weird instruments that may effect mom and Grandma."

Yeah. Been around here for...4 years? Something like that. Been a while least to say.

As for when it was founded...I really dont know to be honest. From what I know just from the Leiutenant and Deadpony it was basically wished from a magic Genie for Oblivious Pony. This was long before I got here though, and the Mansion used to be a lot crazier. It has a very...quiet history now, which I dont mind so much honestly.

"Oh... um..."

Kinzie stood there for a moment, somewhat awkward to see that someone has caught her using a spell like this. She didn't use them that often anymore other for personal reasons, so now it would feel more like showing off to use them in front of anyone.

That's honestly kind of depressing, I remember this place once being so lively and populated. You couldn't take a few steps without seeing someone's face or a large beast attacking this home that we defended almost as if it were a fortress.

>He looks around, making his point
This place seems so barren now... Its like this place has become a ghost town .... It almost makes me question why the few outliers here haven't left as well. I don't understand why you'd stay in such a place that people continue to abandon more and more... It really makes me wish I could go back to what this place used to be, its former glory...

Yeah those were...some pretty hectic times least to say. I mean not to say that it never happens anymore. Just...yeah not much anymore in the least.

The mare looked back to the hole in the tree, rubbing the back of her head with her book before turning over to the familiar stallion she saw, but never really took much time to get to know past that.

"Oh... right. I'm a Duskblade. Or I used to be. My spells are passed down a line of trained soldiers. I managed to keep my book, despite losing my title and alignment to my guild. That was my acid arrow I cast. I seem better at using it on my own time than in actual fights, though."

Well...sort of really. Since I first showed up, I was ordered to see what was happening at the Mansion just to investigate whatever chaos was happening. And from then on I just decided to stick around. And as I am part of the Independent Allied Forces, defending Equestria from outside forces from my long past, I was being stationed here as, yes, defense.

Its kind of a confusing story yes, but I still stick around here, spending most of my time up North where our HQ is because, well not much happens around here anymore.
