Nivalia trots over to the fountain, enjoying the light most that eminated from it, a nice change from the balmy weather above. Her brother follows, and they both stand a few meters away from each other. "Alright Fox, you know the drill." Nivalia says as she takes her costume out. She breaks the outfit down to five pieces, placing them in a neat pile next to her. Her gaze then focuses on her bag, already filled with one python, before looking over to Potato Ponie, "Hey, can you watch my things in the meantime?"

Foxtrot walks over to the fountain with Nivalia and looks it over, recalling a few times he had a late night dip when no one was around. Nodding to her statement the unicorn places his bag down and lays his costume out, a tad less neater than his sister but oh well. When she asks the caped pony to watch her things he looks down at his own equipment. "Yea I might need somepony to keep an eye out for my stuff too. If that's not too much to ask?"

Oh yeah, no problem. Potato says as he grabs both Nivs and Foxs bags. I am nothing if not a bag carrier. He then sarcastically adds.

He takes the pairs stuff and goes over to a nearby bench, sits down, and sets the stuff down next to hi as he prepares to watch Niv embarrass herself and everything probably go horribly wrong.

Once Potato Ponie takes their things Nivalia does one final stretch before boasting to her brother, "So Fox, you ready to lose?"

"After you Niv." Foxtrot retorts. He spots a stallion approaching the two, "Here, you can have the first one; ladies first, although I'm not sure how well you fit in that category."

Nivalia gives Foxtrot a snide look before correcting herself to a pleasant smile as she looks to the approaching stallion. "Hey there sir; can I get a hoof bump?" The stranger stops for a moment and looks down at the costume lined up on the floor. The mare opens her eyes a bit more, fluttering her lashes at him for good measure. With a shrug the stallion hoof bumps Nivalia and continues on his way. The mare looks at Foxtrot with the most smug look, her brother responding with a blank but rather peeved stare. "Your turn hermano."

As the two ponies continue their competition, Caprica begins to rustle around in the bag. After a few moments the python pokes her head out, tongue flicking in the air as she tastes the particles around her. She looks up to the caped stallion watching the bag and slithers out onto the bench. Once she's next to him Caprica coils up in a neat ball and looks over to Nivalia and Foxtrot, enjoying the spectacle just as it starts.

Potato Ponie watches as Niv gets a hoof bump. He wasn't going to cheer or anything. Well, no explosions yet, so that's a plus. PoPo shifts around a little bit on the bench and lets out  a heavy sigh. This turned out to be a little more boring than hed thought itd be.

Potato reaches into his Cape of M-Theory and grabs a potato. As he munches on the tubular and very important starch filled veggie, he notices Caprica slither onto the bench and curl up next to him. So Hows it going there Cap? He says in between bites out of pure boredom, calling Caprica Cap.

Foxtrot gives off an irritated sigh as Nivalia boasts her accomplishment. Spotting another stallion approaching he raises his hoof as the pedestrian gets close. "Hey up top!" Foxtrot is surely disappointed as the stallion walks by without even giving him a glance.

"Ha! Shot down!" Nivalia shouts, giggling as she looks at her brother's costume pieces. She points to one of them, "Get that tail on Fox, you know you want to!"

Foxtrot remains silent as he picks up the tail, staring daggers at his competition the whole way through. He breaks contact to focus on clipping the tail onto his own. With a small snap the tail is attached and the unicorn gives it a few swishes to make sure it won't fall off.

Nivalia laughs for a few moments, "Looking rather foxy there if I do say so myself." She spots another passerby and raises her hoof, "Am I right?" The mare trotting by looks at Niv for a moment before walking off, not wanting to be any part of what was going on. Nivalia's smile diminishes as she realizes her hoof has gone unbumped.

The unicorn in front of her laughs this time, "Oh! Denied! Go on, put on the bee butt!" He sports a smirk the entire time Nivalia grumbles to herself as she puts on a piece of her costume. The end result looking quite... peculiar.

As the two continue making fools of themselves, Caprica looks over to Potato Ponie. She yawns, opening her mouth, unhinging her jaw and bearing her teeth for a moment before closing it again. The python shifts her body around until her head is plopped right on her midsection; the rest of her body acting as a pillow as she watches the two ponies by the fountain.

Potato might comment on how weird this all is, but Hes a potato themed superhero. Not really his place to say what is and isnt weird. PoPo laughs as Fox puts on his foxy tail and Niv gains a bee but. He looks back over at Caprica to see her curled up in a ball. Must be nice to be able to curl up like that. Potato continues watching Niv and Fox make fools of themselves, a bit lost in his own thoughts.

A few minutes have passed and the two pones are now almost fully costumed, already drawing a small crowd around. Foxtrot lifts his hoof once more, giving a lively hoof bump to a passerby who seems to have joined in just to be part of the experience. The unicorn looks over to the earth pony opposite of him, "Alright Niv. Just give up now and finish your costume. I'll cut the time in half that you have to stay like that."

"Uh huh." Nivalia replies quite flatly, "Half the time, I'm sure I can guarantee that when you lose. Besides, those ears are quite a nice addition to your look.' The mare raises her hoof, another onlooker coming up and bumping back before returning to her friends with a giggle. She gives Foxtrot a smug look as she rests her hoof down.

Seeing Nivalia get another pony to help her didn't really phase him as Foxtrot stretches his front legs out and let out a small yawn. Sleeping hasn't been a strong habit for him and at times it shows throughout the day. 'Let's see, looks like there's another pony coming, should be an ea-' Foxtrot's thoughts pause as he spots a trio of guards rounding the corner and heading straight towards them. Almost instantly the unicorn reaches over to his mask and places it on his face. "Alright Niv, you win." Not even waiting for a response he trots over to the fountain, looking over to his reflection to see the end result.

Nivalia remains slightly speechless as she sees Foxtrot easily surrender, and just as another pony was approaching him. The crowd give off some disappointing sighs, although a few do applause for the show itself. The mare reaches down and begins to pick up her bags and mask but stops when she notices the approaching guards in the corner of her eye. Giving one glance back to Fox, she returns to picking up her things and walking over to the fountain as well. "So I'm guessing since you're going to be wearing that for a while, we go somewhere nice to show it off."

Foxtrot chuckles, "Yeah, at least this mask covers most of my face. The tail is getting itchy though." He adjusts his mask once more before looking back to his reflection. "So, do you know what the weather is for tomorrow?"

Nivalia looks up from her reflection, eyes scanning around them and peeks over her shoulder. The mare finds the three guards have now passed them without notice and were on their way out of the marketplace. "I'm seeing clear skies for tomorrow if you ask me."

"Good to know." Foxtrot replies, finally turning back to the spot where their competition took place; his bags still resting on the ground. "Alright, let's get going then. I need something to distract how silly I look right now." The unicorn trots over to his bags and picks them up.

Nivalia follows him but walks over to the bench as he gathers his things. Sitting next to the caped pony and balled up python, "Well, nice to see you two are getting along nicely." She reaches her hoof out to her pet, who uncurls and slithers up her leg and eventually wrap herself around Nivalia's shoulders. "So Potato, anywhere you want to go? I don't mind since I wont have to be wearing this anymore." The pony reaches over and begins to take off her bee costume.

Potato stretches as Nivalia trots over. "Well, not counting the impossible to get to or dangerous places and assuming alternate dinensions are out, then how aboooout..." Potato responds to Niv's question, taking a monent think about it. "Oh, I know! How about Wacky's Fun Pit! They have slides and this realky huge ball pit! Some say it goes on forever!" Potato exclaims, his eyes wide with excitement. He tgen quickly looks around and clears his tgroat before saying "You know, if you guys want to..."

Foxtrot walk over to Potato Ponie and Niv, just reaching them in time to hear the words 'Wacky's Fun Pit'. He gives a curious look at how excited the caped pony was to go there. His sudden nonchalance not really helping in hiding his joy. The unicorn shrugs, "I wouldn't mind. They do have a decent arcade at least." He tilts his mask, making sure it's snug, "Besides, I'm wearing this mask so if I see anypony I know, I'm well hidden."

Nivalia looks between Potato and Foxtrot as they explain their new destination. "Oh, I've never been there before. Yea we can go there, as long as one of you two lead us there." She looks down to Caprica, remembering her python may not be allowed inside; she pats the snake's head a couple of times, "Ir a dormir (go to sleep), Caprica." The python, already draped around the mare's shoulders, lets out a yawn before slithering into Nivalia's bag. "Alright, I'm ready to go."

"Yay!" Potato exclaims in weird childish delight as Niv and Fox agree to go to Wacky's Fun Pit. "Ooooh, first we should go in the bouncy house! Then in the arcade!" Potato makes remarks like these the entire way there, randomly exclaining what the three should do.

"Oh, Fox, you wanna play Call Of Apples: The Juicing with me in the arcade?" Potato asks Fox after a minute of exclaiming what tgey should do, referring to a popular first person platforms puzzle action adventure survival game. About apples. Yep.
