The mare glanced at you with one eye, then the other, kind of like a squirrel or a bird might look at something interesting. Then she spread all four of her wings and flew away like some sort of magical butterfly. You wondered what she thought of you.
"A human! How veyry inteyresting..."
This came by a stallion by your feet, and interesting was what came to mind as you looked at him. He had spines and a mane, but most fascinating were the little cogwheel markings about his body. And he was wearing glasses? And carried a cane? A top hat? And was that the smallest pocket watch you had ever seen? A steampunk Samanayr? Now you've seen everything!
He settles down on a nearby stone, presumably to get a little elevation to see you better. "We don't get many humans oveyr heyre. They like to go to Unicoyrn Island to yrelax on the beach. But I foyrget my manneyrs, I am Tick of the Fyrenzied Clockwoyrk and I'm honouyred to make youyr acquaintance."
You introduce yourself in return and just as you were about to ask him more about his obvious interest in all things mechanical that move, there was a tiny movement. You had to stare hard, but eventually you made out another Samanayr foal.
She was staring at a tiny orb that followed her around wherever she went. And then it dawned on you, you'd seen orbs like that before. Journey of the North Star had two. This had to be his filly. Just then the orb whizzed past your eyes, distracting you for just a moment, and when you looked at the foal, you saw she was now a young filly! Magic was such an amazing thing. Tick was still there. You expected him to be suprised by the change, but rather, he seemed more amused by your reaction. Perhaps you got used to stuff like this if you live here.
Name: Tick of the Frenzied Clockwork
