Jade the Dragoness: introduction pt. 4 by QueenCold
Jade the Dragoness: introduction pt. 4
Twilight was making her way down the streets of Ponyville, fully emersed in her book, paying little mind to the ponies around her, but not entirely unaware of her surroundings. Quills and Sofas was bustling with activity, as was the bakery. The Cakes had their hooves full, selling hot buns with the help of Pinkie Pie, Rose was tending to her flowers, Apple Bloom just delivered apple pies to Junebug... wait...

"Hey Apple Bloom, I thought Applejack was supposed to do the deliveries." said Twilight, approaching the filly.

"Normally, yes, but my sister's mighty busy at the farm. I also promised her I'd help with the deliveries around Ponyville, so she'd let me go to Zecora's for potion practice." Apple Bloom replied.

"Oh, right! How's --" Twilight started.

"Ooh, that reminds me! The other day when I was on my way there, an apple fell on my head. You won't believe what I saw when I looked up!" Apple Bloom interrupted.

"More apples?" Twilight answered dryly, not in the mood to humor Apple Bloom with a 'what'.

"A dragon. The apple was hers, so I gave it back. She said her name was Jade." Apple Bloom recounted.

"You talked to a dragon?" Twilight asked incredulously, not that she thought it was untrue. After all, many dangerous creatures call the Everfree their home and she already knew about a dragon who resided there.

Apple Bloom nodded and uttered an affirming "mm-hmm". She then proceeded with her story, conveniently leaving out the part about the timberwolves. The last thing she wanted was for Applejack to find out about that. She was already a very protective sister and almost didn't let Apple Bloom make the trip to Zecora's at all.

"I wonder why Zecora never mentioned she knew a baby dragon..." Twilight pondered out loud, tapping her chin with her hoof.

"I don't know, but I have more pies to deliver. It was nice to see you, Twilight!" With that Apple Bloom walked off to the next customer.

After saying goodbye Twilight tucked her book under her wing and started back home. Her order of quills could wait. Quills and Sofas was far too busy for her taste anyway. But who could blame the patrons? Two sofas for the price of one-and-a-half is almost too good a deal to pass up. The whole way back Twilight thought about Spike. She reveled in the idea of Spike having a dragon companion to interact with close-by, but reminded herself not to get her hopes up, or more importantly, give Spike false hope.
As soon as Twilight entered her castle, she began looking for her saddlebag. While at Zecora's, she might as well see if she has more of that delicious tea and it would give her another excuse to go, should the search for the dragon turn out fruitless. She considered asking Spike to accompany her, but decided against it. She heard him hum a cheerful tune as he was doing the dishes. She smiled.

"Spike, I'm going to Zecora's for a little bit! Do you think you can finish your chores before I get back?" Twilight called out.

"Way ahead of you, Twi, I'm almost done! Say 'hi' to Zecora for me, okay?" Spike called back.

"Will do! I'll be back before long! Bye, Spike!" Twilight replied. She couldn't help but smile again. Spike truly was her number one assistant, always eager to help.

So, a lot of you already know about the situation with Frontwinner. For those who do not know, let me explain:

Frontwinner is an unlicensed MLP plush producer. They create their patterns based on images they have been sent. Last year a group of artists united against Frontwinner, causing Frontwinner to change their policy and no longer accept images from Deviantart. However, this is near impossible to enforce. An anonymous watcher notified me that Frontwinner had started producing Jade plushes without my knowledge and :iconsaturngrl: gave me their contact information. I emailed them and they were surprisingly civil. They responded quickly to each of my emails and sent me five plushes as a part of their apology. They also stopped the production of the toy.

At the time Frontwinner had already produced 300 pieces and understandably wished to continue to sell them. I gave them permission to do so and in return we agreed I was to receive 8% of the profits they made. However, it soon became apparent they wouldn't be able to sell all of the plushies, so Frontwinner emailed me informing me of this and offered to give me 8% of the plushies rather than the profit. So on the 10th of this month I received another 24 plushies, bringing the total to 29.

I will be keeping one myself and already gave five away. You are probably wondering what I will do to the rest. Well, here's the answer:

Jade will be spreading love and joy to sick children in the region. This should bring my adventure with Frontwinner to an end and I honestly wouldn't want it any other way.

Hellooooo again my dragon-friend! XD I wanted to ask you a teeny favor. I'm planning on making a video on my Youtube talking all about my take on Spike's backstory and the MLP dragon culture and lifestyle. Would you be okay with me using a few of your pictures as visual aid? You are absolutely my fave dragon-themed buddy on here and I will definitely give ya credit and a shout-out at the end of it. :D
