Sonata is the best! I wish you would continue this.

"What's a taco?" :rainbowlaugh: :rainbowlaugh:
Sonata is adorable, I hope she gets a tag soon!
The "Bedroom Magic" part was funny too. :rainbowwild:

I like this. Sonata is so cute! :pinkiesmile: I wish she wasn't... Y'now, evil. Great work! :heart:

Yukito, this was simply exquisite. I loved how innocent and naive Sonata is in here :rainbowkiss:

And you're more than right on that last part of your Author's notes :eeyup:

Now I want a fanfic with Sonata being comforted by one of the Humane Six, after deciding that receiving such abuse was too much.

There should be a sequel where Sonata takes a test. XD

A few spelling errors here and there but an overall fun and very enjoyable read. You did great at having Sonata bring out a lot of great humor with her adorable innocence and ditziness and also a very genuine bit of tragedy in her relationship with Adagio and Aria that made me think of Harley Quinn with the Joker. In what we see and what we hear from her she's being abused physically and verbally and taken advantage of on a regular basis, but she's too blinded by being a part of that group for so long to know better.

All in all, I loved this story. I would love to see this continued or get a sequel, there's just so much potential with what you've established that admittedly it feels like the beginning of a bigger story then an entire one.

This needs to continue. Ok maybe not absolutely need it but i would recommend it.
I have not seen the movie yet but based on sneak peaks and images i like Sonata the best due to her cloud mind, reminds me a little of myself. + she looks both badflank and adorable. :twilightblush:
Great work you'll get a 8/10 from me

Damn, this was rather cute. Sonata is so... yeah. She's special, for sure. I'm planning on waiting for the DVD for Rainbow Rocks, and this whets my appetite.

Nice little story about Sonata Dusk.I like her the most out of the 3 main antagonists mainly because she seems to be funniest among the rest and her bubbly personality is a great addition as well

Only reason I'd recommend watching the camrip early is to avoid spoilers. It's watchable quality, but it's not like "OH MY GOD YOU /HAVE/ TO SEE THIS MOVIE!"

5074007 I've never minded 'spoilers'. For me, since I have limited time/money, I kinda need to know what I'm getting into. ;)

Simple and straightforward. Nothing too fancy, just a humble little tale with some cuteness. I really liked it! :twilightsmile:

Nice job! Cute, funny, very in-character, and with some nice emotion among the humor. :twilightsmile:

Oh, I hope you continue this!

Sonata Dusk is seriously adorable :scootangel:

Good story, but wasn't Sonata already jazzed about Taco Tuesday in the movie? She seemed a little too excited about them to not already have experienced their beefy-cheesy-salsa goodness, :moustache:

5076235

I may have missed that. I just really liked the taco-Sonata pictures I found XD

very cute. I hope you make a follow up on this?

Pretty funny story.

5074012 That makes two of us :eeyup:

5077572
lol, me too; I sent that Taco Bell one to a coworker today right before lunch, :trollestia:

I agree with Sonata tacos are awesome

That was funny!! Sonata is AWEOSME!!!:rainbowlaugh:

:scootangel: :scootangel: :scootangel: :scootangel: You write every character perfectly. This has to be the best post-Rainbow Rocks fic on the site. I so, so want to read more. Do you think the Dazzlings will ever join the cast of "The Misadventures of Sunset Shimmer"? :pinkiehappy:

Oh, and there are a couple of typos I just want to point out, if you care about them:

She really want to say something, but she wasn’t sure how.

Wanted.

You deserve most the credit- What did you just call me?”

Most of the credit.

Your mind’s so small, you get influence by the stupidest things.

Influenced.

One bit of this could kill me!

One bite.

I have to admit, this was alot better than I expected. Typically fics like this are a mess or just plain bad, but you pulled it off in a pretty good way.

Really well done!
Please do another chapter to this.
Maybe Sonata can attend a sleepover at Pinkie's or something? :yay:

This is not the best story I've ever read -- it's fast paced and has some questionable characterization -- but you redeem a lot with that Gilda cameo, not to mention "Duh, it's a swimming pool" was funny. Sonata comes off well, at least.

5106071 Could be worst, could be doing that Silver Spoon treatment like some are doing with Sonata now where they find some excuse to break her away from the other two permanently. :P

”Adagio became furious when I told her that we needed to make the best of this, that we need help because we don’t even know what we are now with our pendants destroyed,” Sonata stopped crying and looked up, “I asked her if we were still Sirens, but without our powers. I know I’m not as smart as she is, but when I asked her if we had become humans, she snapped. She punched me in the face, threw me to the ground and hit and kicked me until Aria pulled her off.”

That's one line from one of... An increasing number of the 'Silver Spoon Clapped First' syndrome fics. It's that troupe where cute girls that do bad things can't possibly be bad because it's clearly other people making them/influencing them to BE bad in the first place.

Heck, one comment here already mentions how disappointed they were with hoping Sonata would of broken off from Adagio and Aria. xD

Old troupes never die. :rainbowlaugh:

...Are you saying this is not the case with Sonata? Because I'm pretty sure it's the case with Sonata. :V

5132339 It's certainly similar, but, if you read well enough you'll see she hasn't actually given up on them and those two DID come back to her despite telling her to leave, Adagio inviting Sonata essentially to make her food again. Not to mention she didn't break the taco in her face! :D
Because that would have made Sonata sad. :'(

“They’re always badmouthing you, and giving you orders, and putting you down! Even after all you’ve done for them!”

Sonata’s smile fell. “Well, yeah… but isn’t sticking together through thick-and-thin what friends do best?”

I'll admit, it feels like the typical Silver tropes. But it isn't at the same time. Sonata still wants to help her friends adapt to their new lives. And despite the overreaction in some parts, it didn't feel forced as much as others. Sunset was essentially the one speaking for the Redemption crowd throughout all this trying to convince Sonata to dump them.

It's a redemption fic without the 'Choose One Over The Other' stuff.

Far as Adagio, she isn't portrayed anymore of a bitch than she is in the movie. So a 180 redemption on her wouldn't work. They all lost their powers. She's likely to take it the hardest and most personal of the three. Just saying. Aria even tries to reason with Adagio about Sonata. The only issue I take is Adagio being physical with Sonata, throwing the taco in her face. But it's done for comic relief and the emphasis becomes on how NOT destroyed the taco is.

Still gonna avoid it mainly since I don't enjoy this kind of stuff, redemption fics. So, as much as I love Yuki, I'm just gonna say it's a well written Sonata. A believably frustrated Adagio, and leave it as is. Not a big fan of EG fics to begin with, but I do love the three from Last Air Bender and that's what I felt in this. I just didn't like Sunset much in this though. I like my Sunset with some kick to her.

I was trying to make it subtly apparent that whilst the other two treat her a little harshly, they still accept her as one of their own and they clearly never do anything that breaks Sonata's spirit or makes her unhappy, because she's always such a cheerful little bubble of cheerfullness :pinkiesmile:

Whether or not that came across I'm not sure :twilightblush:

"I just didn't like Sunset much in this though. I like my Sunset with some kick to her." - Pretty much my only major critique about Rainbow Rocks in a nutshell. Well, that coupled with the fact I don't like 180 personality flips as a form of redemption, but it happened and as this fic is canon with the movie, I had to make Sunset fit that part. Judging by your comment, it seems I nailed it :pinkiehappy:

Sonata, why you so damn adorable?! :rainbowkiss:

That was a fun read. :pinkiehappy:

5070349
I see what you did there.... I approve. :scootangel:

Adagio throwing darts On picture of Sunset Shimmer and her friends?

That part made me laugh more then i should! :rainbowlaugh:

By the Way, This needs another chapter! I'm adding this to favorites. :heart:

I quite like how she's accepted the magic of friendship... but still wants her magic gem back.

“The swimming pool, and no, there’s nothing to do with magic here.”
“Duh. It’s a swimming pool.”

"Sunset Glimmer" - oh no, are you one of those conspiracy theorists?

“But did you see how she smashed the taco in my face but left the rest intact?” Sonata asked. “That means she’s getting better! Getting her out of the house worked!”

this is strange and funny, the characterization was slightly off at times but generally acceptable. I like this

Oh Sonata, why must you be such a dope?

A lovable, adorable ditzy dope, but still a dope.

Sunset’s eyes widened as the mouse’s cursor hovered over a link that read ‘HOT BEDROOM MAGIC’. “Uh, I wouldn’t click that if I were-”

SafeSearch, Sunset! Use it!

Heh that's Sonata alright
