Ivan Buchta and Martin Pezlar from Czech game developer Bohemia Interactive went to Greece to do research for the ARMA series. In a monumental dick move, the Greek government then arrested them under the charge of spying for enemies of the state, and the two men remain in prison.
Anytime… except when I’m trying to sleep.

Captain Aquilinus is my favorite guard pony. He’s just right for my jokes: not so uptight that he doesn’t get the joke, but not so loose as to lose his composure completely when I tell it. You can see more of his adventures as a royal guard of Princess Celestia over at Ask Aquilinus.

Aqui was talkin about clothing re-designs. Agreed that a flight-oriented pony should have a lighter armor, maybe something more leather or cloth than not, with light sturdy armor on needed areas. I thought a helmet to designate Pegasus class would be a must - more aerodynamic. I thought about brilliant sun gold, but then thought silver while in the clouds to blend in; wing motif naturally. A sash, too, might be a good touch about the neck - red obviously, for it is the color of courage, blood, and leadership. Of course, this all means Aqui will have to grow his illustrious golden locks out to let them flutter in the breeze.
I think it’s a winner!

(( Looks a little bit like Thor, actually… ))
The difference between you and me is… I make this outfit look good.
(( You know, I was thinking of redesigning his armor too. ))
Yeah, I know of him! He’s only the bravest, coolest stallion that I’ve ever heard of! He’s my hero!
Ah..hah, sorry about that. The Legend of Captain Aquilinus is well known to me. He was my colthood idol, and one of the reasons I wanted to become a guard in the first place. Call it hero-worship if you want, but the stories my dad told me about him have always stuck with me in one way or another.
I mean, come on! The guy fought dragons, gryphons, outlaws and bandits, and I heard he wasn’t too shabby with the fillies either. How could you not admire a stallion with that kind of reputation? Aquilinus was fearless and brave…though I heard a couple of tales that stated he was deathly afraid of this one castle chef. Can’t be true though. No way.
Sadly…he’s only a storybook character. I’d like to think I’ve outgrown such things since then, but if Aquilinus ever existed, I would shake that stallion’s hoof -hard-…and probably ramble like an idiot about how amazing he is.
Aw, geeze. I think I’m blushing. Can we just consider these questions done? I’ve gotta get back to my station.
(( For those who don’t know, Aquilinus ( http://askaquilinus.tumblr.com/ ) is a Captain of the Guard OC that was around a long time before Shining Armor was even announced to the public. The guy meticulously built his tumblr around awesome world-building , and he was one of the people that inspired me to make my Wild Card tumblr. ))
(( He’s a good friend of mine, and out of respect for him, my Shining Armor doesn’t exist in the same universe as his Captain character. Instead, he’s a tale of legend and heroics, as you can see. ))

(( Now I’m blushing! ))
(( My heartfelt apologies to everyone waiting on me to get AskAqui started again. I actually did figure out a way of getting back on track, but motivation has been hard to come by, for personal reasons. Aqui isn’t dead, I promise you that. ))
(( Thanks for sticking with it and thanks to WildMod for being an awesome waifu. ))
(SC) Wha- what time is it?
(SC) That noise - Aqui?
(SA) Oh I’m sorry Miss Cream! I didn’t mean to wake you. I just had a hankering for an early-morning snack. Um… by the way - who is Aqui?
(SC) N-no - this isn’t right!
(SC) I don’t want this!
(( D’aaaaaww! <3 ))
