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.

The calm night air was shattered as an unearthly screech ripped through the air. If ponies had been asleep before… They certainly weren't now. What was prowling the streets was something… Something… Draconic one could stay… It was at least the shape of the dragon. But far less… Everything.

It let out another feral screech as it crashed into a booth containing vases.

It pretty much looked like an undead dragon without wings. Hideous. Repulsive. And it smelled down right awful. It was bone thin and stood about 1.5x faster than most ponies. It growled at the sounds of screams as the street started lighting up.

The one night she decided to go to Canterlot. The one night she decided, 'Hey, what if I try to sell some of these useless antique vases that I have laying around my house' The one goddamn night. Sapphire was, as always, lucky to be alive. She had managed to dodge the creature, and was already running down the street. She had to warn ponies further up the street, maybe get the attention of the guards.

"Everypony get out of the way, there's something rampaging through the streets back there, and it doesn't seem like the kind of thing to think twice about ripping you apart." She kept going, trying to get as many people out of the way as she could. The more she could get off the street the more would be safe from that thing.

They were all running. Running and running away. Jasmine let out a screech of frustrated rage. She needed help! How was she supposed to get it if they kept on running away? Jasmine stomped a few times, thrashing around and breaking more crap with her long tail before chasing after the crowd. She didn't know what was going on. She didn't know what to do.

She'd just woken up... In pain. No. In agony. Then... This.

The sight of the others rushing away from the danger was a pleasant sight, they would be safer down here. What worried Sapphire was how there were no guards around. Something this loud and this dangerous would easily attract attention, but for some reason the only ponies around were not clad in guard's armor.

The more she thought about the prospects of guards handling the situation, the more she realized it might not go as planned. They would probably attack whatever that was before doing anything. It screamed not out or rage, but perhaps pain. Sapphire realized what she needed to do. She started heading back towards the danger zone. If anyone would be lucky enough to get through to that thing, she was.

How to talk? She didn't even know what her face even looked like. She could feel that she had a tongue. Teeth. But it was a different shape. A horrible taste. This was just such a weird mouth. And she was so scared. What. What. Why was a pony running towards her? What was it doing? Everyone else was running away and this one was running towards her. Was it going to hurt her? Jasmine's mouth opened, but all that came out was a wheeze of air as she tried to use her mouth to speak.

When that failed to work she let out a loud roar, this time actually meant to scare the ponies away.

Sapphire slid to a halt when it roared. Something was seriously wrong. "Look! I don't know who you are, or what's wrong, but I don't want to hurt you, I want to help you." Sapphire spoke with sincerity, but there was a hint of fear in her voice. Fear that she could be wrong. Fear that her luck will run out. She tried to get past her fear, but there would always be a small hint of fear for herself.

"If I'm going to help you, I need you to calm down. I understand that you must be in pain, and you need somepony to help you."

He had just finished his last job for the night, and Stardust didn't get a chance to relax. Ponies were fleeing, from what, the pegasus did not know. His torn ear flicking, Stardust Glimmer soared into the air, doing a quick spin before taking off at top speed, the glimmer of his wings wreathing him in a shimmer akin to that of a shooting star's trail. What in Celestia's name is going on here? Stardust wondered before he saw the creature in question.

Slowing to a halt, the white furred pegasus colt looked at Sapphire Star and then Jasmine. "Mind bringing me up to speed?" he asked with a smile on his face.

Jasmine felt her claws clench around something reflexively. One of those medium sized rocks ponies used to prop open doors. It wasn't the biggest thing in the world, but if thrown it could hurt massively. After a moment of thinking Jasmine then turned tail and ran as fast as she could. As much as she was desperate for help, she wasn't willing to trust it from someone so eager to give it. She was hideous. Everyone else was running away from her. How they could even run towards her baffled her. And she did not believe that they were actually trying to help her.

Sapphire looked at the pegasus. "I'll tell you if you can talk while in an intense high speed chase." With that Sapphire shot off after the creature. If this pegasus was going to get their fair share of the action, he was going to pitch in on the work. He seemed nice enough , though. He was the only one that had the balls to get into the situation with that thing. Speaking of it, what was it? It looked vaguely draconic, and barely alive. Sapphire could barely tell if it was male or female, and Celestia knows what else was with that crazy thing. All Sapphire knew was that she needed to help the poor thing.

"Right!" Stardust smiled and followed Sapphire, easily keeping up. If one were to look in his eyes, there wasn't a hint of fear. Infact, he was excited as all tartarus to be in a scrap like this! Still, he knew something was off about this creature. Call it instinct, but somehow, he just knew. It seemed to panic, and was lashing out in said panic. Much like an old tale he read; a monstrosity that only lashed out because it was rejected because others couldn't comprehend it.

Where to go where to go? Where was she supposed to go? Those ponies chasing her may or may not be out to help her, but Jasmine wasn't willing to bet that they were. Perhaps she should run until she was out of Canterlot? She'd never been outside of Canterlot before. She wasn't even exactly sure she'd know how to get there. And there would probably be g-

Jasmine looked down to her shoulder, where an arrow was now protruding out of it. That… Hadn't been there before. It hurt. She was surprised it hurt. She was some undead monster right now, being able to feel this was weird… Her puzzlement ended as the pain doubled, and she looked up to the pegasus NPC guard who had shot her with a massive roar of anger.

Sapphire caught up just in time to see the second arrow fly.

"Stop! What are you doing?!" It was too late. The creature roared up at the guard.

"If we antagonize it who knows what will happen?! We need to contain it and help it! There's no telling what will happen if you try to take it down!" This thing was now certainly in pain, and these guards were going to get themselves killed. There was no way to fight it safely. They needed to talk this out, or something.

Sapphire was worried about hypotheticals. What ifs. The creature could rampage through Canterlot killing thousands, it could turn out to be some sort of demon of supreme power, or it could turn out to be some little kid with a terrible curse. That would be bad.

It didn't matter yet, for now all they needed to do was stop the guards from killing it. Then they could figure it all out.

As the creature roared in agony and anger, Stardust listened to Sapphire's warning and, on impulse, he flew to intercept the second arrow, which would have went right into the creature's eye.

'What are you doing?!' the guard asked, and Stardust looked at him.

"If you had struck the eyes, you'd only send it on blind rampage. That. Always. Happens!" he winced slightly, the arrow having been lodged into his left fore-leg. "We gotta lure her out of Canterlot, into an open area where others won't get hurt!". Despite the situation warranting a panicked state and the injury, Stardust continued to smile.

"Look what your doing! Guards shouldn't be antagonizing the ponies they swore to protect!" Sapphire was getting a bit pissed. All she was trying to do was help some poor possibly innocent creature. Then these damned guards come in and start shooting and what happens? They hit an innocent. A damn innocent civilian pegasus. At least they didn't ground the poor guy with a wing-shot.

"Will you at least listen to me now? We can stop any more fighting, any more injuries and pain, if you just listen to me and get this thing somewhere safe and underpopulated."

"I'm doing my job. Now get out of my way." Said the guard while hesitating to reach for a second arrow. He didn't want the civilian to get hurt again, that was the last he he wanted. "That thing isn't a pony, and you wouldn't have gotten hurt if you hadn't' gotten in my way.

Jasmine's head lifted as she tried to listen in on what the pegasus ponies were talking about. She was catching parts of it. What she did see was the arrow that was sticking out of Stardust's leg though. Had he taken that shot for her? Why? She didn't get it. Jasmine took a few steps back, then looked around frantically. Where to go where to go?

Somewhere where it was dark... It was night, so that would help. And somewhere where their advantage of flight, of an aerial view, would be robbed from them... Jasmine wasn't sure where that would be. But she was sure she'd know it when she saw it. She then took off running as fast she she could.
