"Burninating the countryside... burninating the peasants... burninating all the peoples... and their thatched-roof COTTAGES! THATCHED-ROOF COTTAGES!! And the Trogdor comes in the NIIIIGHT!!!"


Among the host of backup dancers and stagehooves supporting Countess Coloratura is a unicorn with a small but important role: Activating her voice-changing amulet.

But that unicorn's place in the world of music wasn't always so small. There was a time when he was every bit the star that she is now.

One night she changes her act, firing her longtime manager and choosing to let her natural voice shine. And the unicorn finds himself with time to ponder what this means; both for the Countess, and for his dreams of making a comeback...

I would be remiss not to acknowledge Trick Question for giving the same name to the same pony around the same time I did, though I maintain we each did so independently.

Coincidentally, Purple Rain popped up on my iPod today.


Coincidence? Or something... MORE?
Illuminati Confirmed!

Oh... oh wow this is sad. :fluttercry:

You have me crying moose-tears. :raritycry:

Short, poignant, and makes me feel slightly guilty about the twenty torture fics of Svengallop currently plugging up my hard drive.

Purple rain shook his head.

Somebody knows who Prince is!! :pinkiehappy:
Instant favorite!!

6895372 Nice! Although my secret shame is that I actually don't know Prince's music very well. :unsuresweetie:

6895885 Manly Moose-Luminati tears? :trollestia:

6900056 Thanks for catching the typo; I have fixed it. And honestly, nobody was more surprised than me to find a sympathetic portrayal of Svengallop coming out of this. I originally put him in here just to be a jerk who had taken advantage of Rainy before and was looking to do it one more time.

Prince wrote music for many female artist all the time. most likely still does, and i sooo glad other people saw that was him too!:pinkiehappy: P.S. try watching the movie Purple Rain it's really good!

Beautiful :pinkiesad2: Prince was amazing and he will be missed
