This will be done rapidfire-style, so don't worry about making long and elegant posts. Posting order isn't too important in this thread, since it is a race, but there are two rules to abide by: 1. you cannot post more than once per day in this thread, and 2. you cannot post twice in a row, even if no one else has responded to the thread in 24 hours. The race will end when someone's number reaches 250, or when the event ends. There may be small EXP gains rewarded at the end of the race. That's it, enjoy! ]
This was the worst season.
Small snowflakes fell from the sky to their deaths, sizzling away into nothingness if they were the ones unlucky enough for their trajectory to take them directly into the fire pony's flaming mane or tail. Trick internally rejoiced at each of their deaths. Snow was heinous. Cold was heinous. This event was heinous, with stupid humans gathering to celebrate this stupid season with its stupid weather.
Trick had grown up on these plains, so he had survived a number of winters such as these. But he'd loathed each and every one.
He was currently jogging in a long loop around the entire event the humans had set up, smashing snow beneath his hooves and eradicating the snow that feel with his flames and his excess body heat. But the pleasure gained from ruining the snow was small, too small to assuage his grouchiness, and so he picked up his speed, desiring to work off his stress with a bit of exercise.
(Trick: level 9 + base speed 90 = 99)
