Oh Tavi, you are something else. :rainbowlaugh:

This so well written its a crime its so sparsely reviewed. Proper use of punctuation and good grammar as far as I could tell, as for the music I'm no pianist but your descriptions did a good job of painting a picture of Octavia moving through each note fluidly like a Beethoven concert. And while we haven't really seen much of Octavia and Vinyl aside from 'slice of life' your interpretation of them fits well enough with both canon and my headcanon. I only wish we got to see Vinyl's performance instead of starting from the end. Hope you make another piece focusing on these two.
Consider yourself Favoured/followed

Thanks, man, for the fave, the follow and the comment! I'm glad you enjoyed it. :twilightsmile: I think I will write another story about these two (at some point). They play off each other well and are a popular pairing.

(Also, I'm glad to see another person who appreciates good grammar. :moustache: :rainbowlaugh:)

Can barely conceive of what Octavia did, but this is interesting.

I'm afraid I am rather ignorant as to all the more technical musical jargon here, but this little short story was engaging. So, it seems that the judges weren't really considering the contestants solely on their talent, but rather on their doing something unusual with their performance that catered to the dramatic?

That being the case, I expect I'd be a bit annoyed in Vinyl's place. It can be difficult to know where to draw the line when it comes to being true to your own unique expression, and accommodating your audience's tastes. :applejackunsure:

The way I see it, if someone doesn't appreciate what you love to create when its genuinely quality content, then you just have to wait around for the right audience to find you... but I suppose it's all a matter of whether you are striving for critical acclaim or for a level of perfection in your own mind. Thank you for sharing. :twilightsmile:

Thanks for the read and the comment! I can't answer, really, as regards what's happening, because I have no recollection of what I was thinking the night I whacked this thing together, haha. Glad you found it worth a look-in!

Edit: Oh, hold up, yeah, I was in satire mode. When I was at school, we had these music festivals, and the adjudicators and teachers, in general, could sometimes be very fundamentalist in their approach to judging performance. So basically, if you made a meal of your 'intelligence', you'd end up on top over people who worked harder and played better. Something along those lines, haha.
