Virgin Flame arrives in Baltimare and makes her aqua intense with the staff of a Cathedral there. Spark goes back to Blackwood, helping a rebel and several wolves. Iron takes a train off to the mountains where there is said to be treasure. Silver is pleasantly surprised to wake up to the world-not-ending. Dark Star goes home for the night, disturbed by the forces corrupting the youth, and left to contemplate his role in stopping it.

Honestly disappointed. A seven is not "gang-raped by Maarist cultists" territory, but would probably earn a mugging or at least a stalking.

This city isn't as dangerous as I thought it would be, she thinks to herself, yawning. She drags herself up the stairs of her apartment building, unlocks her door, enters, and locks it behind her.

With sluggish movements Amber pulls off her cloak and undoes her dress and throws them haphazardly to the side. She places the bundle of bills into her empty money pouch and collapses on her mattress. Although she feels like she could really use a shower, she is too tired to clean up or brush her teeth. She is even too tired to pray, offering quick thanks to Luna for the night before closing her eyes. She is quickly whisked off to sleep.

Amber groans and wakes up the rest of the way. She thanks Celestia for a beautiful day and brushes her teeth, takes a shower and brushes her hair. Tut-tutting at herself for treating her clothes so poorly, she puts on her dress and headscarf, though not her cloak, and grabs her money pouch and canteen. She heads out, locking the door behind her, and leaves the apartment complex.

She smiles, and looks back. Her mane is fairly well kept, and silky smooth.

"Well... It's about a mare and a stallion who are in love. You see, the stallion was of lower class, and was adopted by a family. And the mare can't really marry him, she has to marry a different pony instead..." She continues like this

The good and bad both of living on your own is that there is no one there to tell you what to do. Amber gets up much later than she is normally accustomed to, but gets out of the house all the same.

She is out on the road on a Saturday morning. Plenty of creatures abound. It's a bit cooler this day, with rain clouds lingering.

Sadly, grits are not offered in the location. One more strike against griffinkind.

Pancakes and hashbrowns, however, are available. Milk is available, even if it seems a little suspect. Amber takes her seat in a wooden bench seat, and it doesn't take that long for the food to arrive.

Rob it!

Amber looks for some much-needed essentials. Namely:
Soap
Shower curtain
Shower rod
A couple of cheap towels, both for bath and kitchen
A washboard and bucket
Clothesline and pins
Clothes hangers (she must have a closet of sorts, right?)
Toilet paper
Plunger
Broom and dustpan
Cleaning sponges
A few pots, pans and bowls
Waste basket or trash bin and trash bags

She considers getting a blanket and pillow, but not only would that be bulky but she guesses a furniture store would be a better place to get these things. An alarm clock catches her eye though and she considers getting one.
