Starswirl the Bearded
Not a doctor, The Doctor. Hourglass cutie mark, usually accompanied by a blue box.

No, I cannot say I do

*He nods* Very true.  There are some really good families, like the Apple’s who actually helped form Ponyville from what I have heard.  I only moved here a few years ago myself after, do you know what a Parasprite is?

I can’t say I do, are they a new discovery that happened after my time?

*he shudders* They are a creature that lives in a place called the Everfree Forest.  They look cute, but they eat everything in their path, well every bit of food anyway.  There was a swarm that came to my home in Fillydelphia, they destroyed my original tavern.  I decided to move here after that.

A devouring creature under a facade of cuteness… I’ve heard some similar things

I still have nightmares about the attack.  And Celestia forbid you ever see what happens when they drink alcohol of ant kind.

Oh dear… that sounds like it could go very bad…

You wouldn't know of a stallion who calls himself the Doctor, would you?

I had a pony who would look after my health

I'll give you that. You did manage to delay them for at least a thousand years, though.

1000 years is still never enough is it…

You couldn't have known what would happen.

I should’ve known things would’ve gone badly though

Oh, I see... Is it still usable for this purpose then? I mean I don't drink a single glass in a few minutes... I wouldn't be able to enjoy the taste if I did...

You can use it, let it rest for a few seconds then do it again, though being an alicorn you would a lot more resiliant

*He smiles and raises his glass to the elder Unicorn* I’ll drink to that sir.

Thank you, I am relieved somepony understand *swirls his brandy and takes a sip*

I’ll be honest, I prefer a Mare who can think for herself.  But what really makes me mad are the mothers that put their foals do those pageants, I mean some of them aren’t even in school yet.

One of my favorite parts of this time is this revival of equality and free thinking, it’s not exactly perfect yet but I am glad to see it, when you try to live your child by forcing them into some achievement that bastardizes every lesson of decency that I made a point to keep strong during my teaching days, you are setting such progress back

It is when you use it a lot then?

If you maintain the spell for more than a few minutes at a time, they may pass out
