Welcome to Fantasia: Equestria! In this fimfic, I will feature a classical piece and I'll try my best to make the piece come alive with a one-shot story from the MLP universe. It's a Disney's Fantasia of sorts, but with MLP! I highly suggest you read the chapter with the music I provided; I tried my best to fit the words with the music as it progressed.

Since classical pieces can be divided into movements, some stories will be divided into parts to reflect the transitions.

Thanks to Toonicorn for allowing me to use their pic as cover art!

This was excellent! I kept up with the music this time!

Woo! So 200 words per minute works! :pinkiehappy:

I have a suggestion for another chapter. Have a chapter around Cheese Sandwich to the tune of a suggested song from the original Fantasia, Polka and Fugue from Schwanda the Bagpiper. (Since "Weird Al" Yankovic did his voice and he does Polka it would make sense).

So far so loving it! Heck, each time I read the chapter's introduction, I cannot help but try to think of which pony would step up and speak to the audience. Could just be me getting into the whole Fantasia spirit though... WRITE ON! *faves*

I'm so happy to hear this! Of course I'l write on! Classical music is something I breathe myself! Thanks so much for the fave too! :yay:

An excellent job! And the composition to accompany it was appropriate. Plus it had DERPY!!!:pinkiehappy::yay: 40:derpytongue2:s/10!!

I hope it isn't because of my writing style... I worked my butt off to convey the darkness and emptiness that piano concerto let out to its listeners.

I was trying to make a Filly Funtasia reference. :twistnerd: I saw "Fantasia" in the name and it immediately made me think of Filly Funtasia.

I have not yet read your story; as Fantasia was intended purely as a musical and much of it was groundbreaking in that cartoon could convey interpretation much like silent dramas, I am a little leery of reading it for fear I may not appreciate it as I should. :twilightsheepish:

Hmmm... Maybe I should change the name of the fic... I mean, I guess I want it to be like Disney's Fantasia, but now that you mention that, maybe I shouldn't try to mirror the movie that closely.

My ultimate goal was to come up with a story based off the classical pieces I was listening to.

No, no, the name is fine! I just don't want to read it to garner an opinion for fear it may be negative due to my personal bias in how I view Fantasia. I don't think most people see it the way that I do. :pinkiesmile:

Thanks for the heads up! I was just worried that I made the story too unbelievable or too dark.

I loved Little Bear as a kid! So many memories!

Yes! You get the reference! You get a cookie from me! :pinkiehappy:

Awww.....it's sooooo cute! I love it! :rainbowkiss::heart:

Which one is the Night on Bald mountain tribute and the sourcerer's apprentice tribute? Sorry, but I came here for those.

They won't come for a while me thinks. Sides, I'm not doing a cc of Fantasia. I think people would just expect too much from my writing abilities should I shoot for those. Sorcerer's Apprentice on the other hand...

6525143 I'll put it in one of my shelves just for those two chapters. The fact that you just hinted at doing a sorcerer's apprentice chapter makes me eager to put it in a shelf just in case.

Sorcerer's Apprentice is something I want to do, but I hope I don't disappoint. The point of this fic wasn't to do a carbon copy of Fantasia (but I am planning on Sorcerer's and Rhapsody). It's to get people more aware of how much classical music there is and how many situations they can fit! :twilightsheepish:

OMG it is sooooo cute, It's so heartwarming. Please continue. :raritystarry:

The video got taken down.

here comes the friend express :twilightblush:
