The Princess Rarity

Quirky teenage girl who writes about cartoons & has an obsession with sparkly things & cute dorks. Goes through life following by Dr. Seuss's wise words; "You have to be odd to be number one."


Octavia Philharmonica is one of many who are trying to make it in life, and living in one of the nation's busiest cities doesn't make it any easier. She just got laid off of her job, and bussing tables at her friend's cafe part-time isn't doing much to pay the bills, so Octavia falls to her last resort - she'll use her talent of music to offer lessons for those who are willing to learn the craft.

However, when a bold, crazy disk jockey obsessed with rock-n-roll signs up, everything turns upside down.

*le gasp* Another multichapter?
And it's OctaScratch too :pinkiehappy:
I'm intrigued, certainly ...

yay:twilightsmile: its exactly what I wanted right now. you make me a happy reader.

Why a violin and not a cello???
And so far I'm loving it!!!
There can never be to many OctyScratchs!! :pinkiecrazy:

Color me intrigued my good author. May the next chapter color me enchanted. Continue onward my good author.

Ooh, interesting start. I'm intrigued to see where you go with this, but I can wait patiently while you finish your other projects. :twilightsmile:

Don't worry if it's not good enough, for anyone else to hear.... just sing... sing a song....

I'm curious as to what Lyra was watching ...
This is great, can't wait until the next chapter :pinkiehappy:

Considering how short the chapters are, this is actually really well-paced. Looking forward to more! :twilightsmile:

4216494 :derpyderp1: ...Oh. Well... it's still a cute name none of the less. Speaking of which, what does "Tootsie Flute" even refer to?

4216632 Tootsie = Tootsie Roll, like the candy. Flute = Lyra plays instruments. It works.

Yes, Tootsie, yank Bon Bon's hair, Lyra needs more suffering to laugh at. XD

4216637 Well yeah... I understand your choice on that name for their daughter in this story, but what I meant was how did the creators come up with that name for a background pony?

I am now entranced. Good job my good author. I hope that this schedule of daily keeps up but I can wait if it doesn't. Continue onward my good author:moustache:.

The ensemble is either portrayed as a bunch of snooty jerks or playful dorks.

Hmm... I might have to write something where they're either snooty dorks or playful jerks, then. Possibly a combination of both.

Don't you just love cliffhangers?!

let my internal furious rage of 10,000 white hot suns be the answer to if I like cliffhangers to things im enjoying reading:twilightsheepish:

I want more. Have I mentioned I want more? Because I want so much more of this!:pinkiecrazy:

The ensemble is either portrayed as a bunch of snooty jerks or playful dorks.
..You can guess which one I prefer.

You have chosen...wisely

Everything here reminds me of josh. :-(


Can't wait for the next update please let it be soon

To your question...

WHAT?!?!?! CLIFFHANGER?!?!?!?! I'm more of the Leap of Faith type assassin:rainbowlaugh::raritywink:
please no rush but can you maybe update it just got good:fluttercry::fluttercry:

This fic is a lot of fun, there are no errors, the storyline is good. Don't let this die! Tier 3.

I'm guessing Octavia's offering singing lessons, then, or strings? Perhaps musical theory? "Music lesson" is pretty vague.

Considering that Octavia is otherwise used to the noises of the city but Vinyl's singing is described as "screaming", she might actually need some help with singing. If she's self-taught she might not have realized the difference between a voice that is full and a voice that is merely loud. That seems to be pretty common with people who learn to sing on their own.

But how successful a DJ is Vinyl? There are better options available for a popular musician than a no-name with an ad in the paper (although... if she's popular, that would be a way to get lessons without having to worry about it becoming a big deal, like she would if she went to some well-known, really good musician). Considering the timing, I imagine that she heard the last exchange between Lyra and Octavia. The question is whether she's playing a game, or taking advantage of an opportunity.

I hope you continue with this story.

Most background pony names are voted on by bronies and the team. Off a pony doesn't have a name, and the bronies coin the character the name, they usually take it, unless it's not popular. Vinyl Scratch got her name in a brony poll, the name DJ PON3 being her stage name (The show never calls her by Vinyl Scratch) Octavia was also a brony name, as well Derpy, Dr.Whooves, Berry Punch, Dinky, and Lyra Heartstrings.

The show watches bronies like we watch ponies. :twilightsheepish:

Yeah! I wanna know what happens next.

Also: Hey, is that Chloe from Life is Strange in your profile pic? Nice choice. =)
