It looks like I'll be going to the Northwest Bronyfest meetup in Portland this weekend. I've always enjoyed this event when I've had the opportunity to attend, so I'm looking forward to it.

We'll, I'm not sure if I've shared this here already, but one time in our now-finished PTU game, we had to make our way through a bug-infested Viridian Forest, and the safest way was a tunnel still under construction. We had split the party at that point, so it was just my character and another one. The other guy sends out his Steelix to help with the digging, but before they an get any further, my character steps up, apologizes for upstaging everyone, and expends one of the Miracles she gets as a Messiah of Terrakion to complete the tunnel in a few minute. Said tunnel also gets its walls transformed into brick, with frescoes even.

Did I mention The Great and Powerful Trixie's Monte Carlo entrance?

Our supers team went there to track down a villain (and we uncovered his bomb plot to sabotage the F-1 race that was about to start there). One of the villain associates (The 'Don') was at the fanciest Casino in town. The Don made a big entrance and all so that he'd hold the town's attention while the BBEG put his bomb plot into motion.

Trixie of course wanted that attention. She grabbed one of the other players (Paul the alien) and dressed him up as her bodyguard. Then she rented a limo and showed up to the casino unannounced. The GM asked if I was sure that my azure unicorn planned on showing up in public at a human casino, in a human city, on a human planet in sight of the media.

Yes, yes I am.

I cued up Lady Gaga's Poker Face song on my laptop as Trixie made her grand entrance. Slow-motion walk across the red carpet, gem-studded fancy saddle, tiara and fur scarf, the works. Blew my money, but bow was it worth it to see The Don blow a forehead vein in anger of being showed-up by a talking pony. :3

If you're going to reveal your existence, might as well go for broke. Refuge in audacity baby, nobody is going to question something this outrageous.

Yeah, exactly my thought. SHIELD tried to keep Trixie a secret from the public, but there's just no holding back a talking magical unicorn showstopper. :D

(Laughs uncontrollably, trying to muffle as much as possible, as I am the only one currently awake)

Ha ha ha ha ha, I can actually imagine that happening, and for some reason, you getting away with it, ha ha ha ha ha.

(Sits up straight with serious face on) F-1 race, that actually sounds familiar some how, I just can't put my finger on it.

F-1, my shorthand for Formula One racing. The specific track for the Monte Carlo area is the Circuit de Monaco:

oh yea. For some reason I kept thinking about F-Zero and the flying portion of racing.
