Chapter 2: In the name of Balance?
[Please note. In the name of continuing the main message of our story today, we are skipping the various ‘useless’ entries. Aka, those that have no true relevance or simply rant on about how great and powerful Trixie apparently was.]
Great and Powerful Journal entry number eight.
The Great and Powerful Trixie has stumbled across a quaint little village filled with happy looking Earth ponies who have agreed to pay Trixie to perform. The Great and Powerful Trixie, of course, accepted. Not only because the Great and Powerful Trixie needs the bits, but because the foolish ponies here offered. The Great and Powerful Trixie refuses to pass up such a juicy sum of bits.
Trixie performs later tonight. They have a stage upon which Trixie can perform her Wondrous acts of magic upon, so Trixie no longer needs to worry about performing where none could see her. Trixie is going to take her audience by storm, as always. The Great and Powerful Trixie is capable of nothing less after all!
Great and Powerful Journal entry eight continued.
As expected, Trixie took her adoring fans by storm! The Great and Powerful Trixie, it seems, has not lost her touch. But then, The Great and Powerful Trixie could never lose her touch. She is too Great. One of these ponies seem to have taken a particular interest in Trixie, flirting outrageously with Trixie. Trixie, of course, had no interest in taking him up in any of his advances. Trixie doesn’t plan on settling down because of a silly young stallion with excellent taste. Although, Trixie does feel good about being flirted with. Trixie certainly has missed it.
Not that Trixie is never flirted with! Trixie simply didn’t have enough time in Ponyville and those nasty ponies never gave Trixie a chance. On that note actually... maybe Trixie will take the rather cute stallion to bed after all. Trixie has been alone for some time. Perhaps Trixie could use some company this night.
Trixie will update tomorrow.
Great and Powerful Journal entry number nine.
Trixie was quite satisfied with the night she spent with the nice young stallion. Nothing happened, so you perverts out there don’t get the wrong idea about Trixie. It was very warm though, and rather satisfying. Trixie didn’t feel alone that night. It was a nice change for Trixie. Besides that, Trixie was quite happy to simply cuddle with him. His flattery was very nice however.
Trixie is moving on today. Trixie will collect her pay and leave this rather nice town. Trixie may wish to stay, but Trixie knows she cannot stay for too long. If Trixie wants her fame, Trixie must move to another town, another city. Trixie must become well known if she wishes to get the fame she deserves. Trixie will see the stages of Canterlot someday, and Trixie will get back at that evil Twilight Sparkle!
Anyway. Trixie will be back to update this soon.
Great and Powerful Journal entry number nine continued.
Trixie has collected her pay of one hundred bits and is now packing up camp. Trixie is actually a little sad that she must leave this place, but she knows it’s for the best. Trixie shall be leaving very soon. Thus, she must stop writing her update in her Great and Powerful Journal at least until she stops again for rest, or until night falls upon Equestria.
Until Trixies’ next update!
Great and Powerful Journal entry number nine concluded.
Trixie has found a place to settle for the night. Of course she has, she’s The Great and Powerful Trixie! Her skills are legendary! Or they will be. Her survival skills are as amazing as her magic. The Great and Powerful Trixie has but a short time before she falls asleep, and so Trixie shall make this short. Trixie has a destination this time. Trixie shall be heading for a small city. Trotsylvania Trixie believes it’s called. Trixie is once more sleeping under the moonlight. Trixie does love sleeping in the moonlight. But she still sometimes feels lonely.
The life of a travelling entertainer, even one as Great and Powerful as Trixie is a lonely one.
Great and Powerful Journal entry number fifteen.
Trixie didn’t expect this trip to take so long. Trixie has not even seen a sign of civilisation yet. It has been six days, and Trixie thinks she was given bad directions. Trixie couldn’t have gotten lost. Trixie is simply too Great and Powerful to be lost of her own accord. Trixie shall read the stars tonight to try and find her way west. At least, Westerly. Trixie is sure that is where the stupid city is meant to be.
Either way, Trixie will find her way there. And Trixie shall perform in the city of Trotsylvania.
Great and Powerful Journal entry eighteen.
Trixie... ran into a strange stallion today. He’s agreed to travel with me for a while. He confuses Trixie. Even after a Brilliant display of Trixies’ greatness and power, he still does not bow to Trixie and worship her! Trixie will show that arrogant unicorn a thing or two! But not now. The strange unicorn has an even stranger name that Trixie had thought he would. Trixie was told he went by the name ‘Ro-Siing’. According to him, it means ‘Balanced one’. Not that Trixie cares. Trixie never really cared either way. Trixie may not care for the strange new unicorn much right now, but Trixie will get used to it. Oh, and at least Trixie isn’t so lonely anymore.
It is good to have somepony to speak to.
Trixie has decided this journal thing isn’t so bad. Trixie can say things to this inanimate object she never would say to anypony else. Trixie approves Greatly.
Great and Powerful Journal entry number nineteen.
Trixie cannot stand this guy! Trixie doesn’t understand how he stays so damn calm all the time! Never showing emotions at all, not worshipping Trixie as he should, always being so condescending and insulting! Trixie doesn’t need more food, Trixie isn’t fat! Is she? The Great and Powerful Trixie isn’t getting fat is she!? Trixie is unsure what to think! How that inconsiderate, intolerable colt could even consider insulting Trixie like this is beyond her! Trixie is so shocked, she doesn’t know what to say.
Trixie has noticed that he has a tendency to write in a journal, much like Trixies’ Great and Powerful Journal. Perhaps...
Trixie does not see any harm in reading a book.
Trixie will think on this.
Entry 238. Mid summer by reckoning.
It’s difficult to tell the date. Time seems to move faster here. Nothing is the same. This place... it’s not like home. It’s all town and buildings. The ponies here are nice. They’re not as mystic as my family, but they’re still nice. They seem to go out of their way for their friends.
This Trixie I’m travelling with is different. Trixie is belligerent, obnoxious and seriously irritating. Her thoughts are irrational, scattered. There’s no peace in her mind. Nothing she says is real... I can feel it. Balance is my life, and this mare is so unbalanced it’s ridiculous.
It confuses me to no end. In a land full of harmony, she is the link that destroys the entire image. Her entire image screams that something is wrong, but she won’t admit to it.
She sees my attempts of kindness as condescending insults to her image. She’s not fat. It is a strange thing. None of the zebras at home had ever thought that I’d dare to do something so despicable.
It is a difficult thing, trying to adapt to this new land. New lands... new ponies, new animals. There is less Poison Joke here, so I have much less to worry about. The animals of this place give me no trouble.
I wish I could do more to bring balance to this young mares’ life.
