Author's Note:

Trixie Is

The Great and Powerful Trixie.

A mare that is an entertainer. A mare no one else can compare with. A mare that is impressive.

She never gets beaten in a challenge. She doesn't have any weaknesses.

Trixie is someone everypony looks up to. Trixie is unreachable. Trixie is the best.

No one is like her. No one can do the illusions like she can. No one is as great and powerful as her.

For Trixie, everypony is a spectator. For Trixie, everypony wants to be impressed. For Trixie, everypony would have ignored her if not for her acts.

No, Trixie doesn’t need anypony else! The applause, the admiration… They all don’t understand that her shows are just an act of kindness!

And then I help a stuck filly to get free. She smiles at me. Seeing that friendly grin was something I had missed seeing for so long.
