"Sometimes I worry. Does it make me a bad pony—to wish I could hate?" — Twilight Sparkle, I Forgot I was There by GaPJaxie


It’s high noon on a Friday as my assistant pass me a letter. It was about the mysterious mare that appeared every Saturday at nine o'clock at the bar ‘Golden Hoof’ in Canterlot.

I have heard rumors about her but never bothered enough to go and see it myself.

Maybe tomorrow will be the day.

And maybe, just maybe, I found the next Maestro.

Thanks to sejox for being my first editor and helping with all my works. Thank you, bro.

"The Piano Mare", eh? I know where you got the inspiration to this story. :ajsmug:

🎵Sing us a song, you're the piano mare🎵
🎵Sing us a song tonight🎵
🎵Well, we're all in the mood for a melody🎵
🎵And you've got us feeling alright🎵

I was literally listening to the song a few minutes ago WTF

What a coincidence haha.

Is that obvious? :fluttershysad:
La la la, di da da :heart:

Nothing wrong with that.
I actually love that Billy Joel song. When I saw your story, and read it, I instantly knew it was inspired by that awesome song.

You know, I could swear I’ve read a story that’s an awful lot like this one.


Whatevs. I like the song, and good wording here. Nice pace, good blending of the inspiration with an original idea.


Really? I would like to know.
I don't want it to look like a copy or something :applejackunsure:

Might be this one.

T"The Piano Drake"
While sitting at a bar, Rarity finds her spirits lifted by an unexpected pianist. Based on the song "The Piano Man" by Billy Joel

Oh well... The titles are awfully the same. I will have to change that.

Yet the theme of the story seems completely different so I'm OK with that :twilightsmile:

Thanks for the heads-up

That’s the one!

I’ve torn through so many good Sparity fics that sometimes a few gems get lost. :raritywink:

Yeah, that chapter title is what gave me that nagging feeling. I feel kind of bad for you, that’s a perfect title and it’s kind of a shame someone beat you to it...


Still, if it’s any consolation, both of the fics are quite good.

Yeah. Those words carry some kind of power with them haha.

But welp...
White mare and Black piano is good too, right? :moustache:

My lawyer has advised me not to answer that question, and simply repeat my statement that it’s still a good story.

Good answer. Your lawyer knows his job xD

I took piano lessons as a child... And I hated it, so I would smash the keys in hopes they would break or the batteries of the keyboard would die. Somehow all the melodies sounded better that way.
Music tells the stories our own words can't tell... All of our joy, sadness and rage is so much better expressed in music.
Just thought I'd said that so my comment didn't seem so empty. Sorry.

Great fic!! You can feel the emotions throughout the whole lecture, that's cool :3

Thank you very much, I really appreciate that, hehe.

And yeah, songs can carry so much emotions, not only the songs, but the way its performance is. Sometimes, we just do what we feel.
