Following a Maiden's Voyage, Pt.3 Learning One's Craft ~Behold! I am the Master of Fire!~
“The Lantern Festival…” Caroline said carefully, “I guess we better get ready.”
It was a quarter to 12pm, and still no moves were made. Daisy had been upstairs for quite awhile and yet and still no one noticed she left.
“Well,” Caroline got up from the floor stretching her muscles out, “Guys if you need me, I’ll be on the roof. I think I’ll soak up uh’ few sun rays before we all leave.”
That did not stop Fluttershy from following. Happily, and not a moment too soon, Fluttershy trotted behind the saiyan, both making their way upstairs. The garden was a large oasis on the roof of the mansion-sized castle. Caroline rarely hung there but as for the birthday girl, she decided to escape to a sanctuary of solitude.
“Caroline…” Fluttershy softly began, “I always wanted to ask you this.”
“Well...um...let me see. I always wondered about you…how are you able to do the things you do?” Caroline glanced at Shy playfully smirking, “You mean, how am I able to wield energy the way I do? Well to be completely honest…I’m not a 100% human. I have saiyan blood flowing through my veins.”
“What’s a saiyan?”
“You sure do ask a lot of questions, Shyshy. I’ll try to go back to the beginning. This is what Roshi told me when I was younger,” she paused clearing her throat. “Saiyans use to be space pirates: lethal warriors from the planet Vegeta. Many years ago these space pirates conquered other planets and sold them for reasonable prices. However, in Grandpa Goku’s case he was sent to Earth as a baby because he was thought of as someone too weak to carry on anything. He was sent to Earth to destroy it. As a boy he was hotheaded, angry and mean. He wanted nothing to do with the love of my Great-Grandfather Gohan. But suddenly a tragic accident occurred which should have claimed Grandpa’s life...but some for unknown reason he survived. After he recovered from his injuries, he turned out to be a happy loving boy.”
Fluttershy was deeply intrigued by the story. Before they knew it, the pair arrived at the shady oasis. A cool breeze took the air and in the middle of the grass-like field was a chair. Strange as it looked, Rainbow Dash somehow managed to get there before them. She was lying on the grass reading the Dare Collection she found lying around the house. Caroline sat in her comfy chair putting on studio sized headphones to drown out the sounds of the environment. Fluttershy looked over the horizon. She was so amazed at how the clouds smothered the pyramids and the nearby city in the distance.
Suddenly from a distance inside the roof entrance, a muffled pair of clops and footsteps was heard approaching. Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash quickly glanced at the roof entrance. Caroline on the other hand was unaware of the incoming presence from afar.
“Hey what’s shakin’ guys? Who knew that this would be the new hang out spot? There’s my big birthday sister!” Jasmine smiled at everyone. Caroline glimpsed at her and tugged her headphones off.
“YOU BUM!!!” Carol barked at Jasmine, “You know you’re really something. I ask you for a hug this morning and you completely ignore my request and tell me Mom called me. Mommy said you lied. She was never calling me.”
“What are you talking about dear sister? I haven’t been out my room all day. This is my first time out for in 13 hours. I have a project to finish for my next fashion line.” Jasmine claimed. Caroline sat up from her chair bewildered. She thought she was going nuts.
“But we saw you,” Fluttershy came to Caroline’s defense, “you said to her you didn’t even want hugs and there wasn’t any time for such things. You know…that wasn’t very nice Jasmine.”
“But…but that wasn’t me. You all must have been seeing things.”
“So are you calling Fluttershy a liar, Jazz?” accused Caroline.
“No. I’m saying you have completely lost it. Anyway, where’s Mumzy?” Caroline settled back into her chair, momentarily placated. “She should be in her room. That was almost two hours ago. That’s strange; Mom never takes that long to dress herself. She’s been actin’ weird lately.” Both girls pounded for a brief moment until Caroline broke the silence with her excitement.
“JAZZ!!!” Caroline shouted flying from her chair, “check this out! Today you are going to learn how to control the might of fire.” The girl swallowed hard. Jasmine and fire don’t get along very well. It was like poking a bee-hive with a stick.
“F-f-f-fire? Caroline honey, you know I hate fire!” she squeaked with fear.
“SHUTTUP!” Carol demanded, “I know what I'm doing! You’re a saiyan! It’s time for you to learn how to wield some form of energy to protect your family. Hold your hand out!” Jasmine was consumed with fear, but impressed with her sister’s progression with her powers.
“How on Earth were you able to do that?”
“I have no idea lil’ sis. I don’t need fire power. I’ve had this brewing inside me for a month now. I don’t need to use fire. I think it needs a better host: someone who’ll treat it well. It’s time Jazz.”
Jasmine was losing the last scraps of tolerance she had managed to hold onto. Still, she maintained her composure as best she could. “I’ll try Caroline. Just promise you won’t hurt me.” Jasmine placed her hand forward. Caroline gently folded her hands together. Slowly she reached over to Jasmine’s palm slowly spreading apart her hands. She revealed a bight tiny flame. Caroline reassured she wouldn’t get burned. It was bright but yet so beautiful. Fluttershy and Pinkie Pie were drawn in closer to how magnificent the flames were. However, as the two ponies got more involved with the sisters, Rainbow Dash was too involved with her favorite fictional heroine Daring Do.
Suddenly, Jasmine realized she was still holding the flames in her hand. Jasmine released the flame and she came to the realization that the entire time she didn’t get burned.
“Well, I’m done relaxing and talking,” Caroline said getting up from the chair, “I’m going to get dressed and find Mom. I wanna see Celestia and the others. C’mon guys lets go.”
When Caroline and Jasmine find their mother, her true intentions are revealed… …on the next, FaMV…
Finally I have enough time to comment lol! It's nice of Caroline to tell Shyshy what the saiyans were and their heritage,where they came from. SO! Caroline taught her dear sister Jasmine how to control the might of fire. The image itself is very beautiful! I really love the way you shade as always! ;giggle: The textures and detail in the hair is marvelous and the background, along with the mountains and dunes really adds to the detail and quality of the image. The shading you added to the tree at the left is awesome and I really like how you have one of the ponies going for the book, lol! Caroline's tail is amazing. The way you made the glowing effect on her hand is really good! And of course the way you do clothing is spectacular of course! ~ Once again, amazing job!
Soooooooooooo Awesome hmmmm hmpf.... it is quite a job mate, reading the whole thing but now that i have a bit of a break to bad comcast still sucking my life but is just for the moment i will restart over again from part 1 to keep the story fresh hehehehehe, there is no need to say how outstanding job you did there with the picture and well hmmm not to mention i fell in love with that flame effect just so brilliant the way you blend the graphite. and well i would like to take this chance to apologies for not been avalible to purchase the pic since my credit card is coming in 1 month for bank stuff and well the one i'm using well i'm still in doubt if it work since the old one i try to use to purchase the pic fail and in what way, i would like to ask you if you have other print of Harmony Disrupted available, well hope to read from you soon, my best of luck to you
Nah, I wish. I dunno if i'm con material. If I had a table I'd sell prints. I wouldn't do sketch commissions on demand. By the way I will send the package out by Monday. Since it snowed like mad yesterday flights and whatnot got cancelled so I could not drop it off at the ups store. You'll get with a week and some change though. When I drop it off at the post office I will e-mail you the tracking number so you can keep a heads up where its at.
