Hooray for first fic! :pinkiehappy:

Good job so far. You did a great job on the dialogue in my opinion. I'll track this to see how it progresses. :twilightsmile:

I really like it and can't wait to see more... :scootangel:
But how the hay did Octavia, in two years, never noticed that Vinyl was in fact a stallion... :twilightoops:


Vinyl is a transgender stallion, as in born with mare bits, in this story.

Well someone keeps bugging me to read other authors on this site. Looks like I picked a damn good one to branch out with. Excellent pacing, internal monologue doesn't feel bland like they often come across, dialogue is realistic.
The only problem is that there isn't more. Fix it. :pinkiehappy:

I want more.

Also, there are some instances where speech marks are where they shouldn't be. If you want, I'll point them out.


Speaking as one of the editors:

"Well, that's embarrassing."

Feel free to shoot me a PM if you don't want to put it in the story comments.

An excellent first chapter. I'm looking forward to more of this :eeyup:

This violated my headcanon 0/11 needs more muffins less gay

Glad to see this is finally up. It's been some long (but fun) nights.

“I’m… I’m not a mare.”

Well, that explains the pronouns. I was kind of confused, but now I see what you were going for there.


“I’m… I’m not a mare.”

Octavia tilted her head, confused. "Then... what are-"

I like it! :rainbowwild: Can't wait to read more! But, stay on top of classes :twilightsmile: don't fall behind just for our entertainment sake.

Just one bit: Not a smoker and I don't like the smell cigarette smoke, so I cringe at those parts.:pinkiesick: but forget me, I'll overlook it.


Just one bit: Not a smoker and I don't like the smell cigarette smoke, so I cringe at those parts.:pinkiesick: but forget me, I'll overlook it.

No worries, Derpy doesn't like it either. :derpyderp2:

5131201 cigarette smoke is a rather nostalgic smell for me. I don't smoke, but when people do around me it brings up some nice memories.

Nice one :twilightsmile: Waiting for the next chapter...

I'm not a smoker either, but I always write Vinyl as one. I find it oddly fitting...

5131636 5131385 My dad used to smoke indoors when I was a kid. Whenever I visited his place I would get really bad headaches. :pinkiesick: Even now, when someone with a very potent smell of it gives me a slight headache. Memories are funny that way.

5131273 I should mention that I always viewed vinyl as a transgender character? :twilightblush:

I don't think that's something any of us would have expected from you. Do tell.

Why must you leave me on a cliffhanger?! :flutterrage:

Ahh I love the romance ^-^ great story Froey! Can't wait for more!


Huh. I didn't see that coming.

You'll have to forgive me for not reading the final draft sooner, I've been very distracted of late. :twilightsheepish: In any case, I'm glad to see Music to His Ears has finally found it's way onto the site, as I know you've been working hard to write this for quite some time now.

I do like it so far. I know that wasn't entirely clear when we were speaking during revision, but I'm definitely looking forward to the next chapter. Feel free to let me know when it's ready, and I'll notify you in private if I have any concerns regarding editing or formatting. :raritywink:

5140298 What?! :rainbowderp: Guilty pleasure :twilightblush: Guilty as charged.

Edit: Hugs story


Doesn't have to be a guilt thing, ya know. :derpytongue2:

I hope Octavia won't misunderstand. I imagine his past will reveal precisely why Vinyl is so reluctant towards telling his beloved.:fluttershysad:

Standing still within time,
you have yet to wander that road.
For silence and trepidation
and the horrors of night haunt you still,
the fearful gait.
you may find
that love heals all,
and that day shall break on this despair.

Awaiting further releases.:fluttershysad:

Whoa. Just before this, I read something that was filled with a more romantic style, metaphorical and wordy prose. And before that, something that was far more terse and reserved. Coming to read something after all that with a slowed down pace, where all the actions are described rather methodically... well, the pace is more noticeable. Rather fascinating...

Anyways, this has hooked me in, especially with the cliffhanger. The little details of Octavia's happiness create such a sense of unease for for Vinyl and for the reader.

“My name is Octavia, Octavia MelodyBond, James Bond.”


Ooh! High Style is in this!

You could say that one fic from you was a bit of inspiration. :raritywink:

I still like it! Keep up good work and the chapters coming :pinkiehappy:

Finally got around to reading this, loving it so far. Let me know if you want any art for it. ;)

“Fifty!?” Vinyl yelled. “For a manecut?”

Typical guy. Doesn't like to spend too much on a manecut :twilightsmile:

I'm lovin' this story. Keep the chapters rolling.


More like "intelligent person" :D

That said, I've no idea what the going rate for bits are.

Me neither. Judging by Vinyl's reaction it's quite much.

I tend to think 1 bit = $1 American dollar

So, a $50 hair cut.

So, no wonder he got pissed...

What happened indeed. I wonder how VInyl (Record) will handle his apparently swift transition?
I'm hoping Vidala will be expanded upon. She seems like somepony to serve a significant purpose in this story.:pinkiegasp:

Let love blind you to their faces,
and sweet whispers deafen to the foolishness.
Let him blossom,
dream into that bliss so dear.
For you two remain this night.

Awaiting further releases.:fluttershysad:

Slight spoiler: Vinyl is not going to be referred to as Record Scrape in this fic.

I see then. 'Twas just to distinguish. :derpytongue2:
