Nice to see you take the initiative and make an OOC.

It's been a long hiatus but I'm back on track and ready to RP some more in the future.

I can't wait to hear all of your ideas  ^-^.

Hi, everypony! Thanks for making the OOC, Smiley!  ^-^
I wanted to say that I agree with the direction that Levi is taking with the RP and I'll try to merge with him as soon as possible, even if my character is actually in the mood "I-don't-want-to-know-anything-else-please"  X3

I shall add my thoughts soon ponies, but I'm just going to sleep for some time a little busy

Another Dumb Rage Inducing Post Merge

How much do you want me to reveal about how I think this RP should progress?

If I don't tell you everything, you will probably be left confused, but if I tell you everything, it may take some of the enjoyment out of the RP for you later

FakeSmile

Just kind of give us a short summary of what could
happen. I rather be able to react properly to the event
than be confused.
:33




Okay, so I don't really have any ideas for the
plot of the story . . . BUT I do have an idea
for the crew's outfit. Kind of like the outfits
in Star Trek but with a lil twist.
Spoiler: show

Spoiler: Galacto • show

Spoiler: Sorta Nameless • show

This is sorta the visual idea I have for   Nameless. I didn't know what his eye colourwas, so I just picked magent(?). If he has a different eye colour, I can easily go back and
change it.
[/spoiler]
So yeah the coloured part of the suit and
the heart will be the same colour as your
OC eyes. So far Scarlet found heres, so
lets hope the others will.  I prob do somethin'
special for who ever ends up bein' the star
captain (if we ever decide on one ).

A general idea would be nice: maybe, just some tips, without spoiling the end?

A few later discoveries would reveal that the 4 ships are actually alien

The aliens did indeed board the ship, however they are surprised to find the ship crewless

The original crew had used the escape pods, none of the original crew are aboard the ship

The aliens have a passive aggressive nature, they avoid violence if possible but will not hesitate to defend themselves

The aliens aboard the 4 ships are quite similar to the changelings, though they are not the same

The aliens want to find out whether the ponies of Equestria are a threat, to do this, they analyse the behaviour of an individual of a species, once they understand common behaviours, they shapeshift into the individuals of a species and then land on the planet, where they can learn even more about the species by assimilating as an individual

The aliens have a problem though, they can shapeshift into a specific pony, but that pony will still exist, if they were to land on the planet without doing something to the pony they shapeshifted into, there would be 2 very similar ponies which would raise suspicion and blow their cover

Something has to be done to the ponies they shapeshift into...

Fortunately, the aliens run into complications...

// I feel like I've butchered the story I had planned there, but that is an outline, we don't have to follow it though...

HE'S SO CUTE  >:O

But if we're going follow star trek lore, he needs to have a red shirt lel

Thanks for drawing him :>! I honestly don't know what to say, this usually doesn't happen to me.

I will have to repay you somehow...I will need to think on this.

It's actually a really good outline to follow, it could very easily cover the story arc of the effective alien threat on the ponies  :]

Heeeeh, if I knew Star Trek better I would.
And no worries, I needed the practice!  A
colour system isn't a bad idea. . . . I'll look
more into this Star Trek stuff.
LoL

Just thought about replying to this so I get notifications.

I`m not a big fan of the alien idea, but if it was just other secret Celestia ships I think it would be better.

The story there is a lot weaker then I originally planned, there are still a few things that I have missed out that should make the RP more interesting...

We still have some points to clarify, like: how we get on the Solar Arrow and why. My initial idea - and here I'm sorry, but I voluntarily tried to make it seems like it was Celestia's plan - was to resolve it like this: we got abducted by an alien race for scientific reasons, so Celestia sent the Solar Arrow's crew to save us. But, even after been rescued, the aliens, interpreting our "abduction" as an attack, eliminated the crew and is how using the ship as a prison and us as guinea pigs. We don't remember anything because we've been intoxicated with a particular kind of gas that had been injected in the whole ship.

Ok, I know it's a little trivial...  X3

whoa... that sound awesome xD all of these ideas sound awesome xD lolz, my idea was just that there was a kind of horror movie scenario, where we were actually the original crew, and this is all like some sort of nightmare scenario lol.

Game suits being a guinea pig, can't really escape. He was even a guinea pig in a little backstory I made for a specific story, used to make the main character who happens to Game too. :3 (I`m not very creative.)

:'( Ok, maybe it's because I'm a dog person, but the idea of Gamey vivisectioned makes me cry. Same with Pikachu.  >A<

I actually think that's quite a nice idea ^-^

The problem with my idea is that is the story is too "over thought" :P

It was good guinea pig stuff, they made him live longer and used him to create a anthro, cause DNA splicing. :3 He was also fed really well as a guinea pig.
