Ah Canterlot. The capitol of Equestria. Flutter thought. As bustling as it usually was, the tan Unicorn was kind of happy she returned. She was asked to help train a young pony in archery, but really didn't want to move to Canterlot again. So, she would train the mare Four times a month. Today being the first day.

Foals...Intel really didn't do foals. Such were neither interested or capable of understanding the Advanced Theoretical Magic that he usually meddled in. Still, he was under strict instruction from his doctors that taxing his mind too much after his...accident would be high inadvisable.

So here he was, escorting one of his cousins on his mother's side to a scheduled archery lesson. Despite his general unfamiliarity with the young ones, Armori Rainshine was a pleasant filly to talk to, despite her complete ignorance in the more complex details of magic.

No, Armori was far more interested in being a 'proper Canterlot lady'. Such were expected to have proficiency in a number of things, such as composition, art, at least one musical instrument, at least one sport, and at least one weapon, usually a rapier or bow (spears used to be the fashion, but nowadays considered to be a 'lower class' tool). Guns were right out.

So, Intel's mission was to escort Armori to her instructor, one 'Flutter Shot', and supervise. There, in the private training grounds reserved for those with both the bits and pedigree, they chatted and waited for the instructor.

Flutter arrived at the grounds in awe. How could anypony own this! She saw her "apprentice" and trotted over. "You must be Armori Rainshine, correct?" she said, pulling the remains of her Canterlot speech out.

(Apologies for slowness, I needed to come up with Amori's actual personality.)

(Oh, and I wanted to try something. An experiment, if you will.)

Sports. Competitions of physical prowess akin to the power plays of old when the strong took what they wanted from the week. They were certainly better than the barbarism from the old times, even verging on what you might call civilization, but such things were not really my style.

Still as part of the 'nobility should hold themselves to higher standards than everypony else' initiative, sport was an integral part to show physical superiority.

Foalish, really. We were in Canterlot, and even though she was undoubtedly the most magnificent city in existence, she didn't get that way through brute force or athleticism, but by creativity and intellect. Unicorns had to be, as magic demanded more thought than mere flight or strength.

Which is why I chose chess as my particular sport.

Armori has her own brand of cleverness, though, I must admit. Having to do both a weapon and a sport, she combined both in the art of archery. She was even motivated enough to search for a tutor, which turned out to be some-

Ah. I suppose she must be the Flutter Shot we were waiting for.

I nodded to Armori, who after returning a nod of her own, curtsied to her supposed teacher.

"Indeed, I am called by that name." she said, with a tone that I knew very well. Armori had always admired Ellie, so it was no surprise that she would copy her way of speaking.

Armori is now looking at me. My cue.

I hold out a hoof at the young instructor. Younger than me, at any rate. "I'm her cousin. Intelligent Design. Intelligent by name, maybe not by nature." I smile. "You may call me Intel, if you wish. You must be Ms. Flutter Shot, am I correct?"

"Yes sir. I shall try to keep the Canterlot speech out, but I have lived in Ponyville for long enough to slack a bit in proper speech befitting the upper-class-ponies. Terribly sorry if it slips out." she explained. "Now then, you may use my sister's bow, should you not have your own, Ms. Armori. I am terribly sorry, my manners slip time to time, natural for me. What would you like me to call you, dear." she asked Armori.

I blink at my ignored hoof, before using it to wave away Ms Shot's concerns.

"Oh don't inconvenience yourself on our account," I said in what I hoped was a light tone, "We're not trying to impress anypony. The point of etiquette is-" I turn to Armori. "Go on, Armori, what does cousin Elegance always say?"

Armori grins. "The point is that everypony should feel comfortable. For instance you may call me 'the embodiment of beauty, intellect and magnificence, Lady Armori of the noble house Rainshine'-" She motions to herself with a flourish. "But I'd much prefer it if you just called me Armori." She points at me. "And call him 'brilliant idiot'."

I snort. "You just copied that from Ellie," I muttered, but Armori would not be deterred.

"It is an accurate description." She turns back to Flutter Shot. "So, teacher, may I ask what type of bow your sister has? Is it a longbow? Composite bow? Recurve? Does it have sights?"

"It's a Compound bow. It is the best for combat, though easy use for training too." she said, handing the mare the dark blue bow.

I wasn't exactly used to being ignored, but hey, it was a chance to observe. Armori took the bow, smiled, then asked, "Okay, um, so now what?"

(((ok, time for a better way of lit RPing for me.)))

"Now, you need to notch the arrow." I explained, levitating the arrow to her. She was smiling, but becoming a lady required this. I just loved archery, because of my parents. And because I always grew up with bows and arrows in the house... But that isn't important. I notched my arrow, at my natural pace, then looked back to Armori. "Ready, Armori?" I asked.

I saw Armori take the arrow, bow in hoof, and notch it. As this was done, I considered the design of the bow. It was so...strange. Not really fit for hooves at all.

Apparently, (according to Armori) the bow was a griffin weapon, designed for claws instead of hooves and it was adopted by ponies as a way to...well, show off. It required excellent coordination with one's hooves, mouth and magic to go through the process.

Coordination that Armori did not exactly have yet.

I suppressed a grin as I saw my cousin struggle with notching the arrow whilst handling...hoofing the bow. It was a brilliant example of awkwardness, a far cry from the professionals that could go through the process so quickly and elegantly that even whilst watching them, you didn't know exactly how they did it.

I face-hoofed. She wasn't a unicorn, like me or Blue! "Here, Armori. Watch me." I unnotched my bow by magic then slowly showed her how to notch it with hooves and mouth. It was hard, even for me, but still. "Think you've got it?" I asked, hoping to save my head from a migraine of face-hooves.

I gave an encouraging smile to Armori as she looked over to me for support. Notching was a slow, unsteady process, and there were moments where she almost dropped the arrow, the bow, or both.

Eventually, thankfully, with much effort, the arrow was notched. Armori nodded, and grinned with the weapon her mouth, proud at her achievement. Armori was a pegasus and did not have the convenience of magic.

Her species made her quite different compared to the rest of the unicorn-dominated Canterlot population, so this was one of her many attempts to try to fit in.

I giggled. "You know, if you fly and preform archery, it's much easier. Or so I was told." I admitted.

Armori tried not laugh, probably so not to drop the bow. "'nd tr' t' c'ncintrit 'n b'th?" she mumbled, raising an eyebrow.

Still, she wasn't one disobey a suggestion and started hovering.

((yes, Lou it is))

I smiled. Armori started to fly and held the bow and the arrow in her hooves. "Better?" I asked her, hoping she could shoot like this. I can't fly, so I never shoot with hooves.
