I am Octavia by Ardail I am Octavia by Ardail
Just doing a Tavi picture since I already did Vinyl I figured I should do Octavia.
Based off the song "I am Octavia" ---->[link]

le simple melancholy
of life's little follies

how I dreamed

to be

on stage with thee

but never could see

the droplets that kissed

and bestowed this tragedy

what happened back then

what happened to us

how could I never admit

that what I felt wasn't a crush

but was true love

that blossoms only once in the heart

but I feared

what grew near

so I took what i held dear

and simply tore it apart

I was Octavia

a slave to the rhythm

that drove me

to insanity

and never did I question

why I love what I did

and did what I loved

till you entered my life

and took away this drug

that I was nothing with out

and left me to shout

to the heavens what is my purpose

my soul left to drought

so as I play the keys

and beg your return

that you would be by my side

that my heart will once again burn

burn with the passion

that I felt oh so long ago

the one that I remember

the one I used to hold

so until that day

when we play

just the two of us

i'll remain near your grave

and play for all

the song

that broke my heart

at winters fall

for on the 23rd

it will be heard

and all will know

for i am Octavia

 

 

I hope this isn't crude or interfering but I felt this inspiration so I thak you for it and the day that last date is important thanks Adril

Didn't quite understand the story behind this piece when I saw it at Everfree, but having now listened to the song, I think you captured the emotion fairly well. Still depressing to see a picture of a crying pony, but nicely executed.

Art is good... Enough... But I hate when people make parodies to something I have no idea what it is... It gives me a feeling... One I can NOT describe... But it is a bad feeling...

why's that? I try to make a picture a stand alone with influence from a song or something. But usually I'll try to make it as good as a stand alone

Oh, and i would like to tell you, this draw inspired me to write something, i watched the picture and write a little song on it, here what i've done : [link] (And well, i'm french, so, i'm sorry for mistakes, sometimes it's hard to translate)

I like these Lyrics! Me and a friend might try to make some music to go with it. If you ever do put some music to it I would love to hear it! Even if it was in french

Sometimes I feel like a snob since everyone else has to learn English but I don't know any other languages

Thank you, it would be amazing with you could do it, i would be very honoured ^^ And sorry, but i would like to do music, but i only have a guitar and i don't have materials to record myself =/...

Well, i must learn English, that's what we learn in high school ^^

I know, a lot of other countries enforce learning English, but most of the schools here mostly teach a language because it's required. Just feels kind of snobby really

I think it's better, cause in french, we must learn to English, Plus another langue that we can choose later (German or Spanish), Plus antoher one with the high shcool where we go (In the one where i am, it's Chinesse or Russia), plus the old language (Old Grec or Latin)... Yeeaah :'D

good piano solo coming from another piano player.

Looking at your profile it's interesting to think about how much some little ponies can bring us all around the world together. I've just never had anyone from Vietnam look at my stuff, or at least that I can remember

Not many vietnamese people are dedicated or even interested in ponies, you know ... when the show is translated to vietnamese language, they just find it awkward, even kids and even to myself. I tried to persuade my friends to watch it but their response are mostly like "I'm not interested in horses or a dumb kiddie show". :XD:
It's also silly that I first watched the show mostly to learn english than find out why it's so popular in foreign countries. So everyday after work and study, I watch an episode just like a kid eager to watch a TV show when the time is come. After finished season 2 I was like: that's all ? only 2 season ? then I find out more on the internet, then I find out the fandom, the fanfic, the music, the parodies, the arts and OMG ! Only 1 hour left until season 3 ! I have never been that enthusiastic before just to watch a cartoon show for little girls lol

Sound a lot like a friend I've made over Deviant art who lives in Taiwan. She doesn't know any other bronies on the Island.
It's always interesting to hear people's "conversion" stories, of how they got into watching a little girls show and loving it so much XD
