Diamond sighed... heavily. She pointed at Sleepy, "Yes, you with the bounce in your step, please go ahead."

"What's your favourite ice cream flavour?"

Diamond blinked and stood silent for a few moments before shaking her head, realizing that Sleepy hadn't asked THAT question, "Oh! That is a surprising question. Hm, I should have to say Butter Pecan, dear - I simply adore Butter Pecan."

A green hoof makes itself visible from the crowd of ponies, accompanied by a gruff voice; "Butter pecan is so manestream!"

Spoiler: show
Totally making my debate into an ask me thread, since I rarely have time to play at the moment.

((Do it anyway! We're an understanding lot!))

Diamond gasped in surprise, "F-Fiddler! I'm sorry, but I like it because it's good, not because it's liked by others! And I COULD have said 'Vanilla' or 'Chocolate'!" She shakes her head, "I suppose... I suppose I am ALSO partial to alfalfa ice cream, though, if that pleases you..."

Diamond grimaced, hardly able to believe she's already been called out on such a serious scandal. "Next question, please!"

Sleepy stared at the fiddler and smiled at her. He raised his hoof again. "So, back to my former question... how close are you and Octavia these days?"

"I believe we are very, very close! I rather hope so, anyway!" She smiled gently, "Ah, there is no sense beating around the bush. We have lived together, vacationed together, all starting after the initiation of this race. We get involved in some fairly heated discussions with one another about... various things, really, but everything else we've enjoyed together means something too, yes?" She hesitates, "That was... rhetorical. Next question, please!"

Sleepy smiled. "Good to hear that." He looks around at the other ponies for now.

Stands up as he was some where in the back of the crowd.

"Do you feel confident in winning this race against Octavia? As far as I understand it you two are the only ones who had campaigned the most for this event... Also, what is your opinion of the sudden growth of our population? There are quite a number of ponies who claim unemployment in the town of Ponyville and elsewhere. Would you allow private business to take part in guiding this county's future or would you rather allow government programs to step in to see to the ponies needs for job creation?"

Diamond claps her hooves, "A political question! Yes, ah. I do not wish to comment on my prospects in winning against Octavia - whatever is to happen is what will be, and that is a bridge we will cross when we get there.

I for one think the sudden growth in population is symbolic of our success - and as with any growth spurt, there is an adjustment period. Equestria simply needs time to find new clothes that fit. It must be said that business already plays an integral role in this county's progress, and I wouldn't have it any other way. I, myself, run a very small fashion firm in which I need to hire others to assist me with any travel difficulties that may pop up. As such, I understand that some may be concerned with the next governor coming in and simply taking everything over. This is not to happen if I am elected. I see the governor's role in business as being one of support - if one firm attempts a hostile takeover of another firm, the victims should not be afraid to ask elected officials for help, but a successful business should have nothing to fear."

She paused as she considers something and nodded with a smile, "I hope that answered your question? Would anypony else like to ask a question? Anything at all!"

Sleepy raised a hoof again. "I'm not so good with politics so I won't ask a political question... though I'd like to know how much wood a woodchuck could chuck if a woodchuck could use powertools?"

Re: Diamond's Gallant Governmental Gathering for Governorshi

Diamond frowned and pondered on the question for a few moments before nodding, "It depends on how much power the tools have and what kinds of tools. Also, is the woodchuck willing to build itself a trebuchet to continue chucking wood long after the power tools break down? There are far too many variables to answer that question quickly."

"What's your plan if Discord can't be defeated?"

"Did you enjoy that kiss? Your lips are quite soft...." Said a voice from the crowd. It was a grey pony wearing a blue scarf who was blushing..madly.

"Discord can and will be defeated... I just have no idea how!

As for you, Platinum Spark, you're getting on my nerves. Stop being such a slob!"

"Gotta love that charm." He facehooves and thinks of another question.

Orion raises a hoof and asks "Do you plan on increasing the saleries of schoolteachers?"

"How did you know your party would defeat Discord? Are you a future psychic or somtin?"

Diamond nodded slowly at Orion's question, "Ah, well... As your friend and colleague, Orion, I must admit that I do not think it would be suitable to raise teachers' wages at this time. The population MUST see the sacrifices I am willing to take!"

She looked over at Whiny and proudly held her head a little higher, "I am NOT a psychic, but I did know that the only way to BEAT discord was to do something a little... crazy. The way I saw it, one must fight fire WITH fire!"

Diamond frowns and thinks for a few long moments, "I would be lying if I did not say 'me'. As conceited as that sounds, if I did not exist, I would not have met any of you, or had the opportunity to hold this conference."

Whiny blinks a bit. "....whoa that is deep. Are you a future psychic filly-osi-fizer?"
