If I ever get good at Rocket League, I'll change my name to Terra Score-a.


This story is a sequel to Syncopation

Vinyl Scratch and Octavia Philharmonica. There's nopony in all of Equestria that doesn't know these names. They are the pinnacles of their genres and the peaks of every genre in between, but it wasn't always this way.

When they first met, Octavia was fresh out of the Canterlot Conservatory and Vinyl was the only member of Syncopated Records, a new music company created by Fancy Pants and his wife Fleur de Lis. They have grown since then, overcome trials both as individuals and as a company, but Fancy Pants still has greater plans for his company. Plans to expand, to become bigger names, to be known not only in Canterlot, but in all of Equestria! In order to do this, the musicians of Syncopated Records, Vinyl, Octavia, Harpo Parish Nadermane, and Lyra Heartstrings will travel through the princessdom, playing their songs and trying to make their own mark in music.

But it will be difficult. They'll have to be more than a company and more than a music group. They'll have to work together, getting used to their off-beat attitudes until they can work as one.

Syncopation must meet with Synchronization.

Like I wasn't going to read this the instant it was uploaded. You brilliant bastard, you.

WOOT, IT'S FINALLY HERE :yay::yay::yay::yay::yay::yay::yay: TIME TO READ

You timed it perfectly. I was literally reading through what few infinished favorites I have left thinking, "There hasn't been any good story updates in awhile." Then the notification noise happened.

Am I the inky one who totally called Fleur being a shark like six seconds after reading they were playing cards...?

3767886 I didn't see that coming, but I called Fleur making them play for lunch in the Mareiot.

I haven't even finished the first one and there is already a sequel!? AAAAHHHHH!!! Well, I'll be finishing the first one and then I shall begin my wait for this one to finish up. Can't wait to read it!


Sir........You have THE most impeccable timing ever. :ajsmug:

Seeing this in my feed made my heart race! It was so fast I felt light headed. Decided I should check my pulse. 144 BEATS PER MINUTE! :applejackconfused: This is the effect you have on me you glorious bastard! :rainbowkiss:

Chapter was amazing keep it up and never stop! :pinkiehappy:

Or else.....:pinkiecrazy:



Yay! I'm glad that I can help alleviate some boredom! :pinkiehappy:

I LIKE YELLING TOO! [](/awwyeah)

Damn. Called something, did ya? Let's see if you can do it again! THE FIGHT IS ON! :twilightangry2:

I can't wait either! I like people who comment! :pinkiehappy:




Terra, you magnificent bastard. This chapter reminds me of when you just started Syncopation (three likes hue hue hue), and was full of creative energy. Only now, you are more skilful when it comes down to written word: your descriptions are more vivid, and your humour-

Wait a second.

Ponies walked briskly down sidewalks

down sidewalks



Unliked, unfaved, unfollowed, blocked, reported to the mods, reported to knighty personally, reported to the police, reported to Her Majesty the Queen, reported to the Prime Minister, reported to the MI as an American spy, locked the door, took a gun, hid under the table, waiting for justice to be served.

As of last week's episode, sidewalks are now canon. BOOM!
I'd like my apology written and sent to me in triplicate and all of your hounds called of--
Your Highness?

Don't forget that She is a mechanic by profession. She knows her machines. Including machine guns.

It's like me seeing the word 'eggplant' in some story. I had to google it...

my favourite author writes a sequel to my favourite story this day cant get any better:pinkiehappy::rainbowwild::heart:

I really like Fleur's character in this chapter. She's motherly, but can be quite devious too.

Hey. Guess what. You got featured. I'm proud of you, son. *Sniffs*

Woop woop! :rainbowkiss:
Super Sequel Synchronization Story is go! :pinkiehappy:

Imediately I'm bored waiting for the next chapter, and I finished reading it ten seconds ago. Love the dynamic between Lyra and Vinyl. :twilightsmile:

Woo! Sequel! :pinkiehappy:

Glad to see it out :twilightsmile: Been waiting for it.

Thus far Just as good as the first! Oh that mare is so evil... Making them do such a thing... Such a dirty trick... This will be fun!!!!


Awesome start! Can't wait for more!

Here's hoping the sequel lives up to Syncopation! If the first chapter is any indication, you haven't lost the magic. :raritywink:

Also, the gdocs thing happened to me the first time I used it. I think the importer is just broken, which is why I copypasta everything from it instead.

Have a great day! :twilightsmile:

Hey Terra, you're in the featured box.
Hey Terra, you're in the featured box above University Days. (if the order indeed means something.:facehoof:)
Hey Terra, Y U so gud horse Writer?

I loved the chapter, Fluer is hilarious, glad we get some more time with her as a character and not just a witty side pony.
my only gripe with this chapter is with Lyra being known as a cardshark back at the observatory. Octavia could not remember her name in the last story most of the time and knew very little about her in general. So I just feel that particular statement coming from Octavia was a bit off, to me that would have made more sense coming from Harpo instead. just my $.02.

SEQUEL!!! :yay: like i said earlier love your work great start i love the sync universe:pinkiehappy:

*takes out revolver* now who pressed the wrong button with the down thumb:pinkiecrazy:

Solid first chapter. Can't wait to see what you do with this.

Also, any time I import something from GDocs to FimFic, I always get a section that gets randomly centered. ANyone know why this is happening?

It's because you touch yourself at night.
Seriously, stop it; this is why we can't have nice things. :rainbowwild:

Well, that ain't stoppin' anytime soon, then :rainbowwild:

you know what suprised me? That Lyra didnt have a heart attack when she was introduced as a musician^^

Private Dangle approves this story.
Also if you put a raisin in a glass of champagne, it will keep floating to the top and sinking to the bottom. Tell THAT to your history teacher.

Finished binge-reading Syncopation after several hours/days of time spent staring at the screen.

Opens up Synchronization.

Only one chapter.


Great, I'm out of chapters. This is the problem with long reading marathons; once you're out and fully caught up, even with the sequel, you're in trouble. :raritycry:

Ah well, patience I s'pose.

By Celestia's glorious mane! I have missed this with a burning passion that can only be described as an unhealthy obsession.

I have said it before and I shall say it again.

You are a glorious bastard. Also your update timing could not have been better.

As always, keep up the good work! There's cookies and booze in it for you!

Those Horseshoepins rub me the wrong way. Don't know why but I got a feeling they ain't gonna be pleasant.

3832087 all of my yes.
3832211 they're biggots. Unless you're also a biggot, they would rub you the wrong way. It's a completely natural reaction.

Hotel Particulier is a jackass :P But this was brilliant.

It makes it triumphant and glorious return...and it was wonderful!

3831528 3832087 i second these terra you are amazing no complaints

I see far too much of myself in Harpo, starting to get worried.

Yay :D Fantastic :pinkiehappy: another great chapter. You, sir, are fantastic.

I too have missed this.

Haven't read yet, but lord knows I will. Absolutly loved the first story, with only one of two problems with the first (and yes, it's either one problem or the other, not both.) I tend to not personally believe that two people can fall in love in the timespan that the characters occasionally noted the story took place in. However, the characters' progression into love felt extremely natural, and the fic felt as if it took place in a matter of a few months rather than a week or two.So my problem is either the much larger one of them falling in love too quick and the story feeling a lot longer than it was, OR the much tinier problem of the characters and author making a mistake about how long the story actually took place. It feels like the latter, so I'm going with that. Anyway, I couldn't ask for a more pleasant surprise than finding out there was a sequel to the first fic, because it was kickass!

Lyra's last appearance in the first fic was her conversation with Harpo in the break room, right? She wasn't hired on as a musician and she still wasn't elevated to that either, and this fic seems to pick up right where the last fic left off. So why is she being introduced as a musician? It was pretty obvious she'd be playing with the group eventually, but ya just totally skipped over the part where she made the transition. :twilightoops:

Wish I had seen the part where Lyra suddenly went from receptionist to playing with the group (we've never even seen her in her receptionist position and there was never any mention of her playing with the group until this fic,) and I REALLY wish Octavia had corrected that bigoted couple and told them that she WAS seeing a mare, but whatever. So far so good, otherwise. :)
