Welcome to a world where love and friendship create the strongest of spells, and where an adventure can be found beyond every twist and turn. A world where all kinds of creatures find themselves in situations of a positively ludicrous nature, day after day, even! In such a world, where "normal" is relative, and mundane is anything but; what sort of journey will you find yourself on today?

• • •

Starting on the In-character date of Mid-June 2019, Journeys Across Equestria's first "Post Reboot" Story Arc will begin. When the latest Lunar Eclipse refuses to pass, Luna and Celestia find themselves cut off from the Moon and Realm of Dreams! Meanwhile, children everywhere are suddenly and inexplicably falling into a deep magical slumber, where they are tormented by terrible nightmares! Who, or what could possibly be responsible?!

To learn more about this upcoming event, please visit the Blood Moon Information and General Discussion thread in the Inn. If you want one or more of your characters to participate in this event, let us know here! The cutoff date for players who wish to participate in this event is May 11th, 2014.

We are currently accepting Canon Character applications! A list of available characters can be found here, the thread to "claim" a character can be found here, and the audition thread itself can be found here.

Congratulations to JM95 for winning the role of Spike the Dragon, although this turn of events also means that he has voluntarily given up the role of Cheese Sandwich, putting him up for grabs along with all of the other available Canon Character roles.

As a reminder, if there are at least TWO auditions for the same character, a poll will be held within three days of the last audition made for that character. Additional auditions will be accepted at that time, but the deadline will not be extended. In three days after the poll has been started, the votes will be counted, and the winner will be announced, as with the old method.

To those of you that play Canon Characters: It is encouraged that you play your Canon Characters as often as you can, within reason. The JAE staff realizes that it can be more difficult to play certain characters in a day to day situation than others, (Such as one of the Princesses, in comparison to say... Pinkie Pie.) so in some cases, leniency is exercised. Still, it never hurts to make a thread that involves a character, that for once, doesn't involve the fate of Equestria hanging in the balance.

Journeys Across Equestria is a My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Roleplay Forum set five years after the show. A 100 word count minimum for posts is enforced for all In-Character posts.

Utopia had fallen into another sudden, brief sleep once again, for she had let the book fall on her head. But that was for good. She quickly woke up soon, and saw the book. "This doesn't seem any interesting... And what a lame title...", she frowned and sighed, placing the book back where it belonged and pushing it against the back of the bookcase.

"In moments like these I wish I was a changeling queen once again... But, since I can't... Anybody got an aspirin? My ears are ringing, my head hurts and I think my magic level has just gone to red..."

Something unexpected would happen when Utopia placed the book back in its spot. A flash of golden magic rippled in the spaces between each book, and the bookshelf slid to the right. Behind the bookshelf were two cages, one on top of the other. The top cage had Spike in it, while Tiramisu was in the bottom cage. Both cages had locks on them that could be opened with Terrus's keys.

"Huh?" Spike sat up and watched as the bookshelf slid and allowed him to see the rest of the room. "Twilight! You're here!"

Miss Blossom walked over Utopia, sorely regretting that she hadn't brought her saddlebag along. She did indeed have aspirin in it, as sometimes being in a classroom with a bunch of occasionally less than well-behaved foals caused her to need it quite sorely.

"Sorry, Utopia," said Miss Blossom. "I would if I had my saddlebag, but I left it at home." Boy, she hoped her saddlebag was safe. If Kaa got into it and swallowed her aspirin, he would be in dire need of a vet appointment.

Tiramisu was huddled in the corner of her cage, and shielded herself from the light as it poured in. "I didn't deserve this." She whimpered. Honestly Tiramisu believed that she was in pony hell. Which accepted draconies too. And dragons. this was all just so terrifying and scary and she was scared. And since she was too terrified to look into the light, she was assuming that the light was the flames of hell. "If you come any closer I'll bite you!"

Twilight placed the two bowls of oil down carefully, after all they may prove to be quite useful she didn't want to do something as silly as spill it on the ground. This was no time to be sloppy. She walked over to the newly opened bookcase with a look of amazement and interest. This was really quite the discovery, even better than the lantern oil! It seemed Utopia and Terrus were quite indispensible in their current predicament.

" Nice Work, Doctor Utopia. Good work every pony, really. We're getting closer and closer every moment. I'm quite sure that we'll be out of here soon enough. Now let's find out where this-Spike!?" Twilight didn't typically end her sentences so abruptly, but this was more than a special situation. She had suspected Spike was trapped somewhere in this world, but she hadn't expected to find him so quickly. If there was such a thing as luck than this was quite an amazing example.

"You know I can't leave behind my number one assistant. We're going to get the two of you out of there Spike, and then we're getting out of here. Just hold tight. This Nightmare is almost over." She said before looking at the other dragon. She seemed worried. It was important to calm her down before they tried anything. A scared dragon was a pretty dangerous thing, even a small one. Fluttershy probably could have helped here, but perhaps it was better she wasn't trapped in here like they were.

"Calm down. Nopony here wants to hurt you. We were all trapped here, same as you, and more importantly we're your friends. Just tell us your name. We're going to work on getting you out of there." She said, hoping that this would help the dragon trust them a bit more.


"Sir... Um I'm sorry, I don't think I got your name. You found a set of keys, right? Perhaps they'll help us in freeing our friends? Just be sure to approach them carefully. We don't know if somepony could have left a surprise here for us."
Twilight decided surprise was a much better word than trap in this situation. No need to worry the two young dragons over a suspicion.

Amor looked to Twilight and gasped. " I am insulted Princess." He said. " I am Amor Eterno, World famous Super Model. How could you not know of me?" He asked. Then it dawned on him. " Oh right... Book worm... Suppose that makes sense." He shrugged. He turned to the cages then looked at the keys then back at the cages. " Hmmmmm." He said. " Well theres two ways to do this." He said. He lazily walked over to the cages and tried put the the keys into their slots. If nothing stopped him, he would open the cages.

The cages Spike and Tiramisu were locked in would open without a problem. Spike leaped out of his cage and ran to Twilight, hugging her leg. He was so happy to be out of the cramped cage!

Spike turned to everypony else and spoke. "I could hear a lot of what all of you were talking about from behind the bookshelf. So this is supposed to be a puzzle of some sort? I mean, that's the only reason why we'd be getting these weird items while being locked up."

Miss Blossom nodded. "Yes, it seems whoever put us in here actually wants us to find our way out. I really don't know why, but that's what the situation seems to be."

The pink mare looked from the gruel, to the black powder, to the trash can. She had an idea of what could be done with those items, and Spike's fire breath would come in very handy for igniting the oil and powder."From these ingredients we have, it really seems like the thing we need to do is blow that door down."

Well, seems things were working out pretty well for them... Utopia, however, felt worried about the idea of explosions and the like, but seems there was no other way around, right? "Hold on a second... An uncontrolled explosion would be dangerous for us without any shielding, right? Perhaps we should try to create a focus point for it, like lock and hinges. And, if we don't... We could use the table as a blast shield, no?", Utopia's concern with explosion was kind of justified: she had seen some things exploding before, but basically... Snappers, and some small festive explosives. Nothing bigger than that.

tiramisu, in hearing the cage door open, managed to reach out without looking and slam the door back shut again. She was safe in this cage at least. the monsters of hell couldn't get her form here. She didn't belong in pony hell. She was a dragon. Her Rper was stupid for calling it pony hell in the first place. "Leave me alone!" One of those voices sounded familiar… She didn't remember their name though. "Of course you're trapped here you demons!" Utopia. Utopia was in hell too. She was demon! They all were! "What have I done wrong Osiris? What HAVE I DONE WRONG!?" Tiramisu began clawing at the back of her cage frantically.

There was so much to do. They had to figure out a way out their cell, calm down this panicking Dragon, make proper introductions, find a way to save all the other unfortunate souls, but first things had to come first. There was one task which called for- demanded- her immediate attention.

Twilight gave Spike the biggest hug she could muster, a warm smile on her face. They were still in great danger, but for now she was just glad Spike was safe. They could figure out everything else later, but for now it was nice just to have him back.

"Oh, Spike. I'm so glad you're safe. If there was anything I could have done to stop this ... well at least we can stop this now. Is there any chance you've been speaking with this young dragon? Maybe you could help calm her down? She doesn't quite seem to trust us." She said, looking up at Tiramisu. She didn't want to try taking the young dragon out of her cage, that would probably just make her more nervous, but they couldn't just leave her there, could they? She turned back to the rest of her companions and decided to focus on escape for a bit. Getting Tiramisu out of her cage didn't much mater if they had no place to go.

"I agree, it seems like we have everything we need to blow our way out, but why would our captor leave us with such dangerous materials? Is this a by-product of the dream world or is it possibly a trap? Either way we should be cautious. We should look for weak points on the cell door, hinges for instance, and try to control the explosion as much as we can. When it's time to blow the door we can stay in the hidden room an I'll put a shield around all of us to minimize injuries. So does any pony have any objections? Doctor Utopia? Amor Eterno? We're all in this together, so I want to know we're all on the same page." Twilight said as she approached Miss Blossom. Any explosive they could manufacture probably wouldn't be the safest or most controlled, but they didn't have much choice in the matter.

Spike nodded, and made his way over to Tiramisu's cage. He kept a safe distance, as he didn't want to be bitten. "Hey, Tiramisu," Spike said calmly but encouragingly. "I was with you behind that bookcase the whole time, there's nothing to be afraid of. It's just Twilight, Utopia, and their friends, I promise we're not in pony hell and that they won't hurt you. Pony hell doesn't even exist!"

Spike knelt down to get a better look at Tiramisu. "I even just hugged Twilight, and she didn't bite my head off. Everypony just wants to help you get out of here."

Meanwhile, Miss Blossom organized the bowls of gruel, the bag of black powder, and the trash can, laying them all out in front of her. "The easiest way we could do this is to put these ingredients in the trash can and push it right in front of the door, blockade ourselves behind the table, and have the dragons light the thing up from a safe distance." She sat down, looking back and forth between the three ingredients. "It may not be the most controlled explosive ever, but as long as we have the table to hide behind and a bit of magic, things should be okay. We have enough space between the door and where we can set ourselves up."

However, a crackling sound was heard, and a green aura rippled up the walls of the room.

"Oh, I forgot to strengthen the anti-magical barrier in this room, thank you for reminding me! Hahahahaha-HEE-HAW! No magic for you!"

Another creature's laughter was heard mingling with the donkey's. It sounded like...Discord's?

"Yup, let's get outta here and put an end to this blood moon thing. I have a lot of foals to help after this, you know.", sure, Utopia's magic was a kind of mind magic in the end, but the way she perceived her own abilities made her think otherwise most of the time. Darn, if one were to see through her eyes, they would understand how her magic works.

However, before she could check if everything was safe... Blackout. Or rather, the glow in her eyes faded, revealing the clouded purple pupils. "Who turned off the lights?! Wait a second... ... I cannot see! What a terrible time to run out of mana.". But then she heard that voice.

"Dickord!", she huffed in anger.

Amor's horn shine faded and he sighed. " Thats just wonderful." He muttered." He said. "I am ready for any plan. This place is filthy and I want out." He thought for a moment. " We can take the two bowls and put them together, I just so happen to carry a rather nice adhesive product that could work as a glue." In reality, all he would have to do is spit on it. As he was a changeling it would solidify into a hard resin. He sighed. " Just let me know when you need me to do something."

"But I died. I know I did. And if I'm dead that means you are too." Tiramisu had had an unfortunate entry into this nightmare world. That being that she had been flying when the sleeping spell overtook her. That being so, she had also plummeted immediately into a nightmare where she crash landed and died. But she could see her and her body and those around it. No one cared. The reason she was in hell? Clearly because heaven didn't want her. No one did.

Twilight placed a single hoof over her mouth and gave a gentle Ssh to Utopia. She'd heard it too, the sound of who she could only assume to be the god of chaos himself. Discord had betrayed them before, multiple times in fact. She wasn't sure if she could trust him completely, even now. However, for now she was going to give him the benefit of the doubt. If he truly was on their side she didn't want to tip their captors off to his appearance, and if this was all part of his gambit, she'd let it play out to see what on Gaia he could possibly be up to before stopping him, for good.

"Sorry, Doctor Utopia. It looks like magic is out of the question. Lucky the plan can still work without it, and once we're out of this cell your abilities should return. For now let's listen to Miss Blossom's revision of the plan. Remember, we'll probably only have one shot at this, so we've got to make it count." She said as she trotted over to the ingredients. She assumed that she was the most experienced with handling dangerous chemicals...and likely the most experienced with being blown up. Her being the one to mix them was the responsible thing to do.

"While putting the bowls together could work, the problem would be lighting it. Besides, I'm not sure there will be enough room inside the bowls for the gunpowder. It's a nice thought, but I think we should stay with Blossoms idea for now. However, if you could tip over the table and affix it to the ground as best you can, it would be a great help, Amor." Twilight said as she finished their explosive and began to push it toward the door. She hoped Spike had been able to get Tiramisu out of her cage. Once they set this bomb off they should move quickly, and she didn't want to leave anypony... or dragon behind.

Miss Blossom nodded. "I agree, Twilight, if we glue the bowls together the fire may be able to heat them up, but likely won't light the oil or the powder. Fastening the table to the floor is a great idea, though, if a couple ponies can get it into position while I set up the explosives."

The pink mare poured the porridge and the powder into the can, and pushed it next to the door. She tipped it with the opening facing the group so Spike would be able to get his flames inside. She had seen enough Michael Bray movies to know where this was going, and she was confident that it would be awesome.

Meanwhile, Spike continued to try to get Tiramisu to come out. "Tiramisu, you're being ridiculous. You're not dead, I'm not dead, nopony's dead. If you don't come out, you'll be left behind when we make our way outta here!"

Spike gave a serious look at Tiramisu, hoping she would come out. She was being completely stubborn, and just wouldn't budge. He didn't want to drag her out of the cage kicking and screaming, but if she didn't come out, he would have no choice.

"It's not the time to be like this," Spike said in the sternest tone he could muster. "Once the door's down, we're going to have to move quickly."
