Azure Foalklore is a bard, traveling the land in search of epic stories, songs, and the occasional bit of treasure. But mostly, she plays for special events around Ponyville and Canterlot. But after one cute-ceañera, she begins to feel restless and heads back out on the road, dark memories following.

*rapid intake of breath*

Yikes. The uh... Pink one sure does know how to prod one's buttons. Regardless, excellent start to a story, thus inciting me to thumbs up AND keep it in my bookshelf! Keep up the great work!

Hm, interesting so far, wonder what she buriied, it's most likely a destroyed village or dead sisterm but I can't wait till its true reveal

Yet another chapter!

Ovo as a peculiar actor would say, I am entertained.

What makes me inquire though, is why Azure is a bard, and yet explores the unknown. Seems like an Indiana Jones type job force, by day a bard, by night ADVENTURE!


Azure was a character I made for a Pony styled Dungeons and Dragons campaign that fell through. She was a bard class, and I can't think of her any other way.:twilightsmile:

But, she does have pretty bad wanderlust, hence the adventure.


Well then! I've never actually thought of doing that type of character building. Then again, D&D has never worked out, considering half the time, the dungeon master we work with is drunk, and or not fully into the game.

Totally a character and mood killer. But I salute the charisma, agility and initiative skills!


I spend a lot of time on my RPG characters, fleshing out backgrounds so the Dm has info to tie into the campaign to make my character want to do things. I hated the thought of just tossing her aside...and then found the site and decided she had purpose again.


Right? I tend to keep my characters in digital and formal ways. There are small apps that can keep your characters under wraps until you need them and there are times of where I'll make one, forget about it, and come back to them and it's like a reunion. It's just kinda hard coming up with a good background. At least, that's how it is for an odd bone like meh.

My favorite character was a monk called Gonzo. I use was intrepidly because his life was short lived after coming face to face with a mimic.

Damn shame.

Hmm...hmm...while seeing an OC straight couple (and from you of all people) is unusual, I do like the opening to this story. It's got a good premise (admittedly similar to something I've been toying with myself), and while I can't say much about Azure since I don't know her well as a character, I am looking forward to seeing her develop.


She made her debut in Year's End if you want some more exposure to her. She's also a background pony at the Hearth's Warming Ball from The Wooing of Sunset Shimmer.

:fluttercry: Kick his butt, Azure!

Yay! I'm noticed! Thank you for taking my suggestion on the magic color:twilightsmile:
Also is that Scottish or Irish I'm picking up?:trixieshiftright:


Southeast Ireland. Folksmill is a real Irish town.

8044723 Nice! Gotta love Ireland. :pinkiehappy:

8044723 Also, I wanted to thank you for writing this. Its what gave me the determination and courage to write the story behind my own OC. So, thank you. :twilightsmile:

That was a fantastic chapter I can't wait to see more of river and azure

Yes. You most definitely should.:pinkiehappy:

Seconded! More from the new happy family! :pinkiehappy:

Awwww that was adorable can't wait to see more

Dangit allyKitty! Now you've gone and given me a new set of ponies to fall in love with. :heart: Great story and I look forward to the further adventures of Azure, Gleam and River.

Oooooh. So happy I finally got to start reading this one. :pinkiehappy:

Not much to say at this point since it's just the beginning but I'm really looking forward to finding out more about Azure. :heart:

Awww. Oh my. Poor Azure. :fluttershysad:

It's sad that Gleam wants a foal too but they can't. I'd say some other way must be possible like adoption or magic but such decisions are of course very specific and personal to the couple. :applejackunsure:

Very interested to see where this leads. :pinkiesmile:

Oh my! :applejackconfused: Well those bandits should know when to read their prey before goin for it. :trollestia: Glad she's alright. Hope that hot meal involves some warm muffins. Those sound pretty good. :raritystarry:

I guessed Irish so I think I win a candy bar. I happen to have a Gaelic name IRL and have some family history there, maybe that's why I thought that. No accent though. :rainbowlaugh:

Hope River will be alright. :pinkiesad2: Azure should take her in if it's all that bad. :pinkiegasp:

Awww, so happy River is going with her. Lotta pain here but better pastures await. :twilightsmile:

So maybe Azure got her little joy afterall. :raritystarry:

Ooooooh. I'm so happy for all of them. River has such nice ponies to look after her now. :heart:

I really loved this story. It wasn't super long but it was cerainly super sweet (minus the hurt of course). :raritystarry: Azure is an interesting character and I can't help but wonder how their family will work after this. I see there is a liitle more written to so I look forward to that. :twilightsheepish:

I finally got around to reading this . . . . and it looks good so far.

:fluttercry: sigh One of the two most awful pieces of news from a doctor that a want-to-be mother does not wish to hear.

Anyone who crosses Azure like that is soon going to discover their big mistake.

(cracking knuckles) Noone hurts a child. Noone!

Looking forward to more of the Bardic Lore adventures.

How have I not found out about this side storyline until today? It's amazing!
