Trixie's Night

Published:
A brilliant light pierced the clouds, revealing the Great and Powerful TRIXIE to thunderous applause! The entire town had gathered to see Trixie's fantastic magic tricks. Several jealous ponies even challenged the Great Trixie on her prowess! But Trixie bested them all.

Exhausted from the show, Trixie basked in the praise of two of her followers, to whom she regaled with the time she'd vanquished the dreaded Ursa Major! Her story was so spell-binding (yet completely accurate) that by the time she finished, it was already time to hit the hay!

That night, Trixie awoke to a terrible crash. She arose gracefully from her bed to investigate the commotion outside. It seemed that her two well-meaning fans had attracted an Ursa Major into town just so they could see her defeat it!

The entire town was in a panic, but the Great and Powerful Trixie knew better. She knew on sight that it was not, in fact, an Ursa Major, but a much punier Ursa Minor. Just a baby. Trixie scoffed at the "giant" creature before her. She did a few tricks to amuse herself, but was interrupted by a particularly annoying purple unicorn. Trixie recognized her as a challenger who ran away (clearly frightened by Trixie's raw talent) from her show the day before.

Desperate to prove her worth to Trixie, the obvious admirer begged to banish the Ursa "Major" and "save" the town. Trixie may be great and powerful, but she is also kind. The Great and Powerful Trixie allowed her fan to try.

After a spectacular failure (of course), Trixie, with a slight yawn, flicked her hoof and sent the Ursa flying. The townsfolk thanked the other pony, thinking she had done all the work. Trixie just smiled and walked away, knowing the real truth.

Done for the 300 event over on Equestriadaily.

Super thanks to :iconmurgurgle: and Dr. Foreigner for the help!


SPOILER: I guess it isn't apparent from the writing, but the "truth" can be discovered if you read this in Trixie's voice.

Of course! The Great and Powerful Trixie realized that the purple one had no friends and let her take the spotlight. Trixie is most kind and wise.

< THIS IS WHAT TRIXIE FANS ACTUALLY BELIEVE >

I really like this. This is exactly how Trixie would try to envision history after the events of Boast Busters.

< THIS IS WHAT TRIXIE FANS ACTUALLY BELIEVE BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENED >

But seriously, thank you so much! I really tried to get the character down, and to have the story be a minor-mystery as to what's going on. I'm so glad you liked it! Getting it to be exactly 300 words was a challenge though.
