I know a lot of people were hoping to hear Octavia speak this season, but between the regular show and those "Equestria Girls" shorts I suspect the powers-that-be have decided to avoid trying to give a voice to any of our favorites again after the whole Derpy controversy from Season 2. So while I suspect Octavia, Vinyl, Lyra, Derpy and more will continue to show up and even get some dedicated scenes now and then, I don't think we'll ever hear them talk, and I'm okay with that, really. Even BonBon might be stripped of her many incongruent voices...

He says on an Octavia picture, mere months before Rainbow Rocks.
It was a perfectly reasonable assumption, but irony had other plans.
Exceptionally well done.
I love this picture, and the idea behind it. The composition (I think; I've not studied art as anything more than looking at pretty pictures on the web so don't expect me to know what all the words are supposed to mean) of the piece draws your eyes to both subjects, but Twilight as a main character gets center stage by dint of positioning closer towards the foreground and the lighting, both of which emphasize her. Yet Octavia is more than mere background, and plays a wonderful counterpoint to our favorite princess (ostensibly; Luna will always be my fave) as well as giving the piece this air of being an actual scene as opposed to a figure study with a background. Also that expression on Octavia's face just makes me want to squeeze her in a hug.
Also love the dress on Twi. Classy, yet simple, very much her.
I imagine she's singing about the Mister Smartypants incident:
And when you're out there
Yeah I was out of touch,
But it wasn't because I didn't know enough
I just knew too much...
Come to think of it, that would sound nice with just a cello for accompaniment--if you had the right vocalist.
And funny, I never expected to hear her, or any of our favorite Background Six to really talk. Although small roles wouldn't hurt that much, like Bon Bon. But yeah, it is in a way enough that we see them at least and powers upstairs in a way acknowlegde them.
Really, there's something in this couple...
Beautiful, very beautiful
