Her father looked down towards her. "Now, not so forceful Tavi. You don't want to damage the bow do you?"

Octavia looked up towards her father. "R-Right, but Father, why are we practicing out here tonight in the blizzard?"

Octavia's father gave a slight smile. "This is where my father, and his father before him, took me every day to practice. They said if you are able to play the instrument in all forms of weather, nothing can interrupt your performances." He then laughed. "But we won't be out here for too much longer; it's getting late and too cold for us both."

Octavia then looked down at the snow for a moment, then back up towards her father while gripping her instrument tightly. "I'm still never going to be as good as you are Father. I'm not so sure that I have the potential to be a great musician."

"Octavia Harmonium, you have the family blood of the greatest musicians in Equestria flowing through your hooves. It's up to you to decide what to do with it. Here, let me show you the true magic of music our family brings to the world."

Now that story was awesome.  I have to do something with Octavia in my book, I just have to.  I've also had this idea in my head where she's playing Cello Wars by the Piano Guys with Steven Sharp Nelson, and her cello bow's color of lightsaber blade is the color of her mane's bow.

Her father was really harm, cold, indiferent and put a lot of preasure on her and wanted her to be an excellent musiciam. She obviously became so.
Even though her father might have been rough with her, he truly loved her more than anything else.
It's the kind of love that even though it is not frequently expressed, it's quite stronger than the one that is expressed.

Is that background a screenshot from Skyrim?

Nope, I made it all completely from scratch in 3DS Max 2013, from model to textures. ^_^"

Where my father, and his father before him, and his father before him, and his father before him, and his father before him, and his father before him, and his father before him, and his father before him, and his father before him, and his father before him, and his father before him, and his father before him, and his father before him, and his father before him...

"Octavia Harmonium?" Kinda sounds like the name of an element on the Periodic Table. Also quite the fitting name.
