Welcome back to the newest thread of Occupied Equestria
In Northern Equestria on the Changeling side, Spark has given refuge to a mare claiming to be stalked by a Changeling drone.
In the southeast, in Baltimare, Amber tries to slip past police in her infiltration of the Police Headquarters. Iron prepares for his next fight against griffin gangsters. Silver enjoys downtime, and Midnight checks out a local church.

"Yes. Across the backyards, then diagonally down towards the left, then back up retreading the same direction."
"Could that be where he is reporting findings?"
“I don’t know. He’s the only one I’ve seen.”
"Well, is it heading any closer to us?"
“Hard to say. It makes passes haphazardly.”Roll die, little pony
And then, the creature drops down onto a table, right there in front of Spark. It's a Pegasus stallion whose coat appears black, and his mane a cloudy white, though in the light of the lamp above him his coat appears a dark, charcoal grey. His green eyes almost seem to glow in the dim night light.
He doesn't look at the house, but rather at the fence that separates the yards, at a wooden stake that is knocked out of place and leaning inside the backyard, and at another disturbed the same way but to a lesser degree. He looks down at a crease in the snow at the bottom of this, and towards a trail that moves towards the spot besides the juvenile poplar tree. Then he looks at the hoof prints - which become a pair of hoof prints - that line the snow to the back door.
Spark casts a Ghost Sound spell through the gap in the fence to sound as a sneeze.
Roll die, add charisma modifier
He looks towards the gap, spreads his wings, and jumps up, flying over the fence
Spark breathes a sigh of relief.
Makade is silent, still looking out the back window into the still night.
Spark goes to check on the guest quickly.
She lays on her side on the couch, eyes closed and completely silent, with a quilted blanket over her.
Iron muffled surprise was apparent as the bug
unicorn retreated away, blindly trying to feel for Sands' position with his legs.
Spark is unsure if waking the pony is the best course of action, but he does so gently.
Iron feels the edge of her left thigh, then the tail, then nothing at all. Eventually the pillow falls away, leaving Iron alone in the bathroom.>>147071
Her steel blue eyes open wide, and she raises her head with a "gasp"
Jubilosa passes the time by starting a conversation about a pelican she witnessed diving at the water from the beach house earlier that day, and how she thinks she saw something similar in the bay at Midora a year ago, though at a much greater distance.
"I think your friends are out looking for you. Best stay low."
"Friends?" She asks, evidently not understanding
Spark heads back to Madake.
"Back. Out of sight." Makade says, laying down and pressing himself into the far corner, mostly away from the window
Spark dives down as well.
Though the shadow on the blinds, and the little sliver between the blinds and the windowsill, Spark can see that the creature walks slowly by the window and the backdoor, carefully inspecting the scene.
Silver listens like the good coltfriend he is, expressing his amazement at the sight and segwaying into a conversation about birds.
She moves off of a mention of her apartment, to talk about songbirds that lived around her childhood home, and would sometimes follow her along her route as a milkgriff.
The shadow becomes smaller, then moves away, then disappears
Silver in turn asks if she remembers the songbird's tune.
Spark motions to Madake and then his ears.
"Oh. Uh... well... I think it's 'tweet tweet tweet'. Or... 'tweet tweet, tweet tweet'. Or.... That's not right. 'Tweet tweet tweet, tweet tweet tweet, tweet tweet'. Okay, maybe not quite like that, but close enough.">>147087
Makade shakes his head.
Silver whistles the songbird tune she gave him.
"Oh. Huh. You're better at it than me. But it was something more like 'tweet tweet tweet'.... okay, maybe not like that, but... You're doing fine."
Spark remains silent on the floor.
Iron knew better than to rush after her, considering her repertoire of using creative surprise attacks, plus knowing himself that Sands is still quite hurt and wouldn't want to hurt her by going overboard.
He nonetheless walked out the bathroom with a stern look, making sure to have his pillow ready to throw at the unicorn's face if she tried a surprise attack.
Silver continues to whistle the tune, slowly turning it into a tune dedicated for his Jubee.
At the front door Knock knock knock>>147092
Iron peeks around the corner to see... nothing. Just a dark, empty hallway.>>147093
"Hehe" Jubilosa takes a sip of the wine, and smiles, watching Silver
Silver continues his tune for his Jubee as it gets towards the end, finishing with a whistling flourish. He looks at her date to gauge her reaction.
>>147094She hid herself again,
Iron deduced with a small frown.
She proceeded to slowly but surely trek his way along the current room, deep inside hoping she joined forces with Cauldron for a another double offensive
Makade again shakes his head, and again peaks out of the rear window (opposite the direction the sound is coming from)>>147097
To the right, the bedroom. At the end of the short hall, the living room (and kitchen).>>147095
"Hehehe" She claps her claws together
"Very good, Silver."
"Thank you, thank you very much! I will be here all week."
Clip clop he slowly went without much subtlety to it, deciding to check the kitchen and living room area first.
>>147099Knock knock knock>>147101
Nothing, or nothing much, is seen in the dark>>147100
The waiter arrives, with two plates of crème brulee, with raspberries and blackberries on top.
Not remembering how the light magic mechanisms work, Iron soon ditches that first idea and instead dragged himself in a predatory stance towards the bedroom.
Spark waits on the floor and looks towards the door.
