MLP: Haze Awakens IC... [Probable grimdark]
((This is the IC for an RP me and Alyarin made .w.
We're bored so we figured we'll just make the IC and do things.
Autumn Gold flinched as the sharp rays of sunlight found a way through the curtains and into her room. The light was almost blinding, pressing her to leave her comfortable, warm bed and close them again. After she had shut out the light, she looked around her well-furnished room and grinned. 'Still here,' she thought. It had been a whole week since her best friend's family had adopted her, but every day she expected to wake up alone and find out that the whole thing had been a cruel dream. She levitated a book off of her bookshelf - this was almost the only book she hadn't read yet. If there was one thing she had missed about her previous home other than her parents, it had to be the books. To call Autumn an avid reader was a severe understatement - the filly spent most of her free time reading different stories. Sometimes, she even read non-fiction. But nothing compared to the immense joy she found that stories brought her. Perhaps it was the ability to take herself out of her life and put her in another whenever she wanted. She wasn't sure exactly why, though.
After reading for a while, Autumn checked the clock and calmly placed the book back on the shelf and exited her room, trotting over to Al's bedroom and knocking on the door softly, to see if he was awake. When there was no answer, she sat outside and started to think. She had thought about waking Al but he had stayed up rather late the previous night. It was better to let him sleep in until it was necessary. She started to sing quietly, so as not to wake anypony, while she waited for her best friend to wake up.
