Call me Prince Procrastination.


The pilot episode of the Rainbooms' reality television show, in which the band breaks up.

As expected, mild drama, washout humour, awkward pop culture references, and character bending to breaking point ensues.

A bad form of self-aware satire.

And then the show was never picked up by the network (or runs for a few episodes and is cancelled), I assume?

:derpyderp2: This got surreal at times, but I mean that in a good way. The references did seem to interfere with the flow of conversation in a few areas, but overall, this captured the medium with stunning accuracy. A most enjoyable read. Thank you for it.

I got them. I got every one of them. :facehoof:

This was great, though. I've never read anything quite like it. :)

This was more than worth the read. I think it might even be unique despite my years absorbing our fandom's stories. That's rare for me.

Come on, you mentioned a glammy-poppy-dancey song about dancing and didn’t reference Dance the Night Away by Van Halen? Smh.

I wasn’t paying attention to the references until a little while in, but I caught The Beach Boys, 30 Seconds to Mars, Castle of Glass (Linkin Park song), Talking Heads, The Smashing Pumpkins, and Taylor Swift.

I love the story, the ending was great. Fun fact, Queen got dropped by a label. The Beatles were turned down multiple times, because ‘rock and roll was just not popular.’ So yeah, it’s a very real possibility.

Can i please for tje live of all that is holy get some more of this pleaaaase. I loved all of this

"Why thank you, dearie, but Pinkie doesn't live here. She just likes – how do you young ones say it? – 'kickin'' it in the guest bedroom."


The flow of this fic was so weird, what with the whole "Hyper Emotional American Reality TV" angle, but somehow you made it work. Particularly enjoyed the characterization work!

This was pretty great, though I wonder if it would have flowed between interview and live segments better without the section breaks. For much of the beginning, I wasn't a fan of how Fluttershy was treated, but she got showcased really well by the end. Her and Twilight's bond was really sweet and was some quality TwiShy. The characters were all presented well overall, though I didn't really get what some gags were going for at times.

It seems I forgot to notify you here or fave this when I reviewed it some months back. My apologies, and here rather belatedly, are the notification and fave. Reminiscent of an S Club 7 style programme, and I mean that as a compliment. Maybe slightly more real-world music references than I'd have preferred, but I loved so much else that it's a minor quibble. Great stuff.
