Why is Lyra really called "Heartstrings"? Why are she and Bon-bon constantly around each other? Why does Lyra never have anything to say?

What -is- this mare's secret?

I know this is the equivalent of dropping an atomic bomb on fanon. So please, I would like to defend myself in saying that this is not me stating theory as fact. Only that I had a moment of: "Why is this making more sense than it should? I should write about this."

Thank you for your time. If you have questions, be nice and polite, and I'll do my best to give you answers.

Love and Tolerance!

The fires of the burning effigies of you will be glorious indeed koba. You've disregarded a couple years of fanon and made Lyra into something wholly new. You will be remembered fondly. :rainbowlaugh:

lyra is awesome :derpytongue2:

#4 · 122w, 4d ago · · ·

Ah...uhm...well...just....

That is all.. I must go cry in a corner over the beauty of this..

>>360239 I can tell.. I DEMAND AN EPILOUGE! No pressure though, but this has alot of potential for getting an epilouge! Anyway, Great story man!

Hello folks! Stalin and Co. here, bringing another installation of stalinview!

Are you ready, crew?

Yes boss!

Defenetely!

Let's dig into Finding your voice by Kobalstromo!

------------------------------

"A soft mint green glow seeped out of an open window as the world slept. Music, gentle and calm seemed to carry itself on the nightly winds, drowning out the usual midnight melody with something more emotional."

Perfect beginning! *hic* Misha Loves poetry! And vodka! Misha likes vodka more, but poetry is still good!

*Rolleyes*

"green"

Lyra is not green, She's mint green! Mint cant be described as just green, green is a color of leaves, for example.

It can be little confusing

"<3"

Stalin knows what this smiley means, but still when he looks at this he imagining cyclops cat

What? I thought it means "less than three"

...Fool

"Lyra jumped and fumbled with the juice box she had accidently tossed in the air"

It must be pretty hard to hold juice box with two hooves.

And much more harder to penetrate it with tubule

Why are these colts behaving like high-school ghetto bullies?

Guess there are ghettos in Equestria.

"A miniature, harp like object that appeared to be made of polished gold"

That's the hell of donation i should say. I guess thre shall be harmonica, incrusted with diamonds and platinum trumplete...

""That was excellent, Carrot Top!""

Again. Poor Golden Harvest. Bronies don't like your name...

OVERVIEW:

This is VERY GOOD, inspiring story. No, seriously. I can't say anything bad about it. At all!

Nor can i! It's Amazing! *hic* and poetic too!

Nothing to do here for me, then.

VERDICT: STALIC COMMANDS TO READ IT!

#11 · 122w, 4d ago · · ·

>>360278 Completely uncertain of what just invaded my comment page. All I know is that COMRADE APPROVE OF STORY. BRING MORE VODKA FOR CELEBRATE.

#12 · 122w, 4d ago · · ·

I liked it. Well done, Bravo:yay:

#13 · 122w, 4d ago · · ·

>>360278 Vodka is good, table is good, Ivan make table for to place vodka and glass on for you. Is good for health.

#14 · 122w, 4d ago · · ·

I, for one, am all for the multi-verse/timeline theory: which means that we can have various takes on many, many different things, and they don't have to ruin another person's fanon/head-canon. :pinkiehappy:

On the note of the story, it was well written, and presented a unique take on one of the fandom's favorite characters - and while quirky, human-obsessed Lyra is my favorite - know that your Lyra will hold a spot in my heart. Thanks for the story.

#15 · 122w, 4d ago · · ·

>>360326 This is a snippet of "My Lyra". Who says shes not human obsessed? She just has other things on her mind in this story. :ajsmug:

#16 · 122w, 4d ago · · ·

>>360325

Of course it is! Vodka is good! That's why i want to kill thet fellow Discord for turning my vodka into tea in previous Stalinview

Heh-heh

HERE YOU ARE! I'll KILL YOU! *RAWR!*

Also, if someone wants to know more about Stalinviews, read my blog :rainbowdetermined2:

#17 · 122w, 4d ago · · ·

Very nice work! And yes, you basically dropped a giant bomb on all previous fanon X) I personally like this better, but previous fanon has achieved critical mass at this point and I doubt there's any stopping it now. Regardless, this is excellent.

#18 · 122w, 4d ago · · ·

>>361119 my only qualm is that mister robot put this story in the queue at 3 am... I think the time of submission killed this fic. :fluttershbad:

#19 · 122w, 4d ago · · ·

beautiful beautiful

amazing

I don't know why but in my mind it seems to me that melody that Lyra play sounds like this

#20 · 122w, 4d ago · · ·

Liked. Twilight and music are fun together. :twilightsmile:

#21 · 122w, 4d ago · · ·

>>361119>>361421>>361428

I just got a PM saying I should take this version of Lyra and continue her story. Question is, who else feels I should extrapolate on what I've done?

#22 · 122w, 4d ago · · ·

>>361470

Hmm... kind of depends upon if you can find a direction for it. To me is seems like the kind of story that could wind up open ended with no idea how to continue it.

#23 · 122w, 4d ago · · ·

>>361491 if I did, it could run parallel to the parent story, or it could diverge and take Lyra and Bon-Bon off on a seperate story line.  If I did the separate story line, I think I know what the end destination would be.

I don't know, I'm going to see how much support this one gets before I determine whether I should use my idea for a continuation or not.

#24 · 122w, 4d ago · · ·

>>361470

Ahem.... as a pre-reader for Equestria Daily, and considering I just gave the okay for this to go up on the site... I'm voting for you to continue, if you have it in you.

This was beautiful, and heart-wrenching, moreso because I'm a musician and singer myself IRL.  I for one would love to see more.

#25 · 122w, 4d ago · · ·

>>361526

I... You... *dumbstruck silence*

... Thank you. I.... I'm still devoted to the work of fiction I'm co authoring. But if this becomes something huge. I will continue.

FOR AN ALTERNATE FANON! (J/K, I just want to make people smile.)

But thank you. I'll do my best.

Love and tolerance,

Kobalstromo

#26 · 122w, 4d ago · · ·

I'd say make it a separate story line, but part of OWoC's universe. Toss in nods in each, but don't worry too much about syncing things and making them completely relevant to one another.

#27 · 122w, 4d ago · · ·

>>361584 I like it, if I decide to continue. (and I probably will.:rainbowkiss:) that is most likely the route I'll take.

#28 · 122w, 4d ago · · ·

Honestly my only issue is having Lyra in a ponyville school. She was at Celestia's school for gifted unicorns in episode 1. Aside from that, no nuke. In fact I liked the concept very much

#30 · 122w, 4d ago · · ·

>>361976 The flashback takes place YEARS before her assumed age in Episode one. Both Bon-bon and Lyra were approximately Applebloom's age, Lyra had just moved to Ponyville. The discovery of her intimate connection with music and it's magic would have been the grounds for her to have transferred to Celestia's school for gifted unicorns later on in life. In another sense, Lyra could also have just happened to be passing through Canterlot on that day. Nopony really knows.

As for the rest of your post... Thank you! Glad so many people are able to make sense of it and enjoy it!

Love and tolerance!

#31 · 122w, 4d ago · · ·

also it can't be that bad an idea if you have 30 likes to your story.

#32 · 122w, 4d ago · · ·

>>362005 you should see my other fic. :rainbowlaugh:

#33 · 122w, 4d ago · · ·

continue this parallel with Wings pretty please:twilightsmile:

#34 · 122w, 4d ago · · ·

ok, I'll go do that now.

Holy carp... well give this one time? *tracks other story for later reading*

#35 · 122w, 4d ago · · ·

Oh geeze, that was a good short and sweet story.

Can't wait to read the chapter of Twilight's story that deals with that!

Don't worry about what fans think, everyone is entitled to their own take on how things are.

#36 · 122w, 3d ago · · ·

That was...pretty awesome. And isn't that the point of fanon? Everyone has their own. Yours is excellent. Heh, being an empathetic reader can be weird. As soon as I realized she was mute, I didn't say a word, not even soft muttering until the story was finished. Very evocative.

#37 · 122w, 3d ago · · ·

>>363380 ^_^ thanks.

All of your comments make me smile on the inside. Thank you everyone!

#38 · 122w, 3d ago · · ·

Mind = blown

(in a good way :twilightsheepish:)

#39 · 122w, 3d ago · · ·

that. is. so. freaking. awsome!!!

#40 · 122w, 2d ago · · ·

>>364894 blame the atomic fanon-bomb for that. Sorry. :twilightblush:

#41 · 122w, 2d ago · · ·

>>358860 Well really, these characters don't have much "canon" to them...so it's kinda silly for other people to bash your fanon of them. "OMG UR FANON GOES AGAINST POPULAR FANON!1!" , yeah, that's kinda...dumb. :rainbowlaugh:

Seeing different fanon interpretations break off from the norm/popular is always nice! :derpytongue2:

Oh, and you're on EQD. Inb4 this story is in the Popular Stories at the top of the page!

#42 · 122w, 2d ago · · ·

>>368031 I only put that disclaimer there because I was ready to expect opposition. That's all!:twilightblush:

Top of the page? Not likely, we will see! Thank you all!

Love and tolerance,

Kobalstromo

#43 · 122w, 2d ago · · ·

Congrats on hitting EQD 'stromo!

#44 · 122w, 2d ago · · ·

>>368199 :twilightsmile: Thanks to you and all the readers for being awesome and supporting me.

Without you guys there is no drive.

Love and Tolerance,

Tonight's viewer brought to you by the letters E Q & D

:pinkiehappy:

Well done little bit there.

#46 · 122w, 2d ago · · ·

The only thing that I didn't like about the deviation from fandom was the lack of a romantic relationship between them. Ah well, the equal lack of anything preventing that helps to balance that out. :P

But really, this story was fantastic, and I really liked this incarnation of the characters. It's more dynamic then many, and definitely original.

Anyone else think of Sona from this?

#47 · 122w, 2d ago · · ·

>>368259 I demand to know your summoner name. Now.:flutterrage:

#48 · 122w, 2d ago · · ·

This is beautiful :fluttercry:

#49 · 122w, 2d ago · · ·

moar?:moustache:

#50 · 122w, 2d ago · · ·

>>368474 Working on the epilogue right now, to be followed shortly after by "Songs of the Silent."

Your cries for more have been heard. :heart:
