A web developer whose writing process occasionally looks like Pinkie's infamous Party Of One thanks to characters deciding to derail his fics when they feel they make more sense that way.


Rarity is suffering from creative burnout, and Rainbow Dash decides to help by dragging her to a concert of her favorite band, Villian Court, led by one Twilight Sparkle. Things quickly spiral out of control in ways Rainbow couldn't have anticipated (but doesn't mind).

Have some Anthro RariTwi AU, because Earthsong apparently decided that I was not busy enough with my existing fics and tossed what she called the "Reverse Rockstar AU" (basically a role-flip of her Rockstar AU, where Rarity is a rockstar and then meets Twilight) onto my Tumblr dashboard. And I took one look at the picture and started to write.
Since then, we exchanged WIPs and ideas, and by now, her AU (now called the "Rock'n'Royal AU") and this fic are very similar, but also slightly different as we both worked on angles in different ways. It's been a wild ride so far, and I loved every minute of it!

Cover art done by Earthsong, which is fitting since she's the one who handed me this plotbunny to begin with. Fic title inspired by the song "Rock the Casbah" by The Clash.

Okay let’s get this out of the way real quick: That...Was...AWESOME!!! Can’t wait to see what happens next :D

Pretty cute start. I like it.

This is a really good start! I hope to read more soon!

i like this concept a lot if this goes well it may end up in my faves

People who take and run with earthsong AUs are going to be the death of me I swear to god...

this is going to be great,
i do wonder if twilight was the princess student at one point. but other wise i have feeling this is a great story

This is a fantastic start. Cant wait to read more

This looks like it's going to be a lot of fun. I love the idea of Octavia as the mad cellist of Ponyville, and what you've done with Dash is especially impressive. At first, I thought she sounded a bit too sophisticated, but you can't be Rarity's best friend since the age of five without that having some impact on your diction.

Looking forward to more, not least because Pinkie Pie is still unaccounted for.

Much to her credit, she hadn’t managed to run straight off the stage. She had, however, tripped over one of the lights that were protruding from it, causing her to stumble badly before crash-landing a few steps away from Trixie. There was a collective gasp, but Twilight quickly jumped back to her hooves, giving the crowd a cocky smirk, as if asking if they seriously believed that this sort of thing would injure her. Everypony laughed it off, but Rarity saw Twilight’s eyes briefly flicking back to her. She... noticed me. She... actually noticed me. It took her a lot of effort, but she managed not to glee at the realization. Granted, I also nearly gave her a concussion from the looks of it, so maybe that wasn’t the best first impression.

'Sen-senpai noticed me!' :raritystarry:

All in all, loved the story and can't wait for more!

While this isn't the Twilight I know, I quite like the story on it's own merits, and am interested to see what comes next.

You had my curiosity, then you had my attention, but now you've got my interest.

I was waiting very (not) patiently for a fic to emerge after seeing this on earthsongs DA...squeee i love it

This is fun. I will continue to read this.

I personally live for these raritwi AUs and this is no exception. Lovely writing anyway and I hope you run with this AU

Totally make it her natural eye color, the air of mystery and wonder around the odd colaration would draw Rarity like a moth to flame.

You have my attention, respect, and favorite. Also.. :yay:

First up!” The singer raised her voice slightly to sound more like an announcer in a boxing ring. “She has taken her solo act to a grand total of eight hundred thirty-four countries, she has ended four armed uprisings with her amazing guitar skills, she handles the light and effect show on top of playing in our band, AND she made me choose between introducing her first and not being allowed to disclose that two of those first three items were blatant lies!

Did you mean 834 "cities"?

Of course not. Trixie just doesn't do the lights for the show :P

Holy comment Flood, Batmare! Thanks to everybody for the kind words! :heart:

Earthsong's AUs are going to be the end of me, period. XD I always feel like I've surely seen all of her stuff, and then she drops her masterlist of all AUs she's done so far, and suddenly it's hours later and what happened?

That's a very tempting suggestion, and I might do just that!

Nope, "countries" is correct, Trixie is just going all-out when it comes to padding her resume. Twi does pretty much say there that Trixie just made up that claim and the bit about ending armed uprisings, though. :trixieshiftright:

Hmm... if this is reverse rockstar... what fics are there for non-reciprocal rockstar!AU?
Also, I kinda want to see full song lyrics (I write music some so I guess if you feel like you want help with that stuff ask away? Lot of Fimfic people have odd little talents that can make stuff way cooler )
Anyways yeah this looks pretty great so far and I can't wait to see more.

I need MORE, seriously this is just a super fun story.

Sees the title SHAREEF DON'T LIKE IT.

Plus it fits the canines and the long horn.

Fantastic start, your characterizations and writing flow are lovely and engaging. I can't wait to read more.

What Earthsong AU??? Or is Earthsong also the name of an MLP thing?

Earthsong is a semi-popular raritwi person who has inspired AT LEAST two people who ruin my life with Raritwi and I love HATE IT

This is freaking awesome and I can't wait for more!!

I've been looking for a fic similar to this so I'm excited for the rest.

Holy shit, that was amazing! I didn't even know I needed this story until I saw the cover art. Well done! I'm ecstatic for the next chapter! :pinkiegasp::pinkiecrazy::rainbowkiss:

I'm not normally into ships, but this had me smiling the entire time. Great job.

They'll win. I just know it.

ye, she got me hooked on this drug

Not many stories end up in my favorites after just one chapter but when you make me burst into laughter several times, make me giddy with excitement and make me smile uncontrollably the whole way though, all while writing the characters absolutely brilliantly you get two things:
1, You get me typing sentences that are way too long, and 2, you end up in my favorites after just one chapter. Huh, well how about that.
Fantastic work, cant wait for more.

Cute. I look forward to seeing more!

I come from Tumblr to read this.
*edit: addition*
I traveled far (3 finger swipes, and 10 letters typed) and was not dissapointed. Following and favorited.


I’ll be keeping an eye on this one....

Okay, you've got my attention. Could have left that ending there, made this a one-shot, but seeing this continued... Well, can't stop grinning at where this might go.

Wanderer D

I... actually really liked this! XD Looking forward to more!

Great story so far. Very interesting world. And yeah make the eye color contacts like her fangs.

Oh ho ho ho ho, this was a very fun read! I eagerly await chapter two!

Havent read yet but i have to ask something about the cover art. Just how do you tattoo fur?

Hot damn, that was excellent.

I nearly skipped this one, due to a personal rule to never read fics with obvious misspellings in the title / description, but then I realized Earthsong had praised this story on her tumblr, and decided to check it out. And I'm so, so glad I did! :raritystarry:

Well tattooing fur would be just like dying hair, I'd imagine.

.... God must hate me since he just put a fanfic that is absolutely ELECTRIC before me without even a SINGLE second chapter for me to whet my appetite....

I love amazing stories, but being there at the start of them is straight TORTURE!

I am eagerly awaiting to see the next chapter.

But at the same time it's so worth it cause you can be part of the group first experiencing it.

Continues drafting up plans to make a Time Machine so I don't have to wait for the next chapter.

Twilight's mannerisms in this story are my favorite part, I think.

This is AWESOME. Can't wait for more!
